The AOL Instant Messenger has truly changed the way we communicate on the internet and it is entrenched on our desktops at AOL more than any other application. The Tcl/TK version of the AOL Instant Messenger and its special protocol has made a world of customization available to Windows and Macintosh users. It also opens up AIM to Unix users who cannot or don't want to run the horrible Java version.

If your job requires instant messaging as much as mine does, you probably find yourself cursing the buddy list program for preventing you from being productive on your computer. I started a minimalist version of Tik called MiniTik at http://minitik.sourceforge.net/ to address these issues more formally than my Tik "Minimalist" patch had. It is available under the GNU Public License just like Tik was.

MiniTik evolved directly from Tik 0.75 (the last AOL release) and continues the legacy of the minimalist patch that I started early in Tik's open-source development cycle. Everything you'll need to set is detailed in the *.sample files that come with MiniTik. If you're already a Tik user, you'll only need to copy your *.config files over to ~/.minitik.

Please visit http://minitik.sourceforge.net/ to try it out! I welcome suggestions to make MiniTik even more mini.

Enjoy!
