Have Proteus organize your sock drawer.

Well most of the pholks coming to have a gander at the comments are probably going to have the same sort of interest that I do, in sending data on to a mobile device, and I noticed that this (the hint and the parent comment) is another take on what you can do to keep your mobile device up-to-date with your personal computer.

Those interested in this sort of notification or synchronization should really check out Proteus as it has the ability to run shell scripts based on buddy actions, and not just for AIM but for 7(?) different networks total. In combination with the SMS capabilities of ICQ and AIM, it allows for selective IM forwarding: you pick who you want to be able to forward messages from, and when you're away the messages from them pop on over to your SMS-capable device.

The number of capabilities in this program are amazing - I am surprised The MotherShip hasn't acquired it for an earlier version of iChat. Now that iChatAV is on the horizon (beta-testing) it may be a bit more work to co-opt (spelling? "Assimilate" would be better if it were Microsoft) it; still worthwhile for Apple in my opinion.

I may have written about this in another hint - I hope it's not redundant but I really want Justin (the developer of Proteus) to keep working on Proteus (even if Apple co-opts it) and spreading the word helps...
