How many times, you had to ping somebody and (s)he is offline and you want to be notified when (s)he comes online so that you can continue doing what you were doing instead of keep on checking whether (s)he has come online or not!!!
My first long sentence after a loooooong time!!!
In Pidgin, you can Select a buddy and “Add Buddy Pounce…”. It gives a load of options on when you want (somebody comes online/sends message/becomes idle……….)to do what (Send a message/Popup a notification…..)
Kool feature that I liked 🙂 It helped me solve a problem that I have mentioned in one of my looooongest sentences 😀
