I think that sounds like a really kewl idea, however I'm not sure if it's possible to update the message text in that away window. If anyone knows anything about this I would also like to read some info.

I have an idea of how it could be done...
first off, get the hwnd of the aim window, then use a sendmessage command to open your away message editor, find the text box, use another send message command to input your text, then call yet another send message to hit the ok button, that will update the away, will it not? :)
also, I'm assuming that since your away, your not sitting there, so the constant updating wont interfere with whatever you arent doing, since you arent sitting there doing anything :D :p

There is a file called info.html in the folder of the users in c:/windows/aim95/username that contains the info of the user. If you arbitrarally write to that file, it will change the info, but it wont change it until aim updates the info.... there is a command i am sure that does this, but i dont know how to find it.
I am guessing from this that the info of the user is logged onto the aol server from the info.html file. So, if there is a way to change the info.html, then now u just have to find a way for aim to send that new info to the server.

Gourou: We did it this way with an ICQ away plugin.
Download from www.clanding.org (been waiting since April 22 to get it published on Winamp.com).
We had to do it this way since ICQ lacks a good pluginsystem (and documentation/support from icq staff)
