Published › November 4, 2011 // 0 Comments
WebPidgin is a plugin for Pidgin 2.x that provides access to your Pidgin instance, conversations and buddy lists through a web interface. Now you can IM from any device that has a web browser.

Pidgin Plugin: Office Hours

Published › November 4, 2011 // 0 Comments
A plugin that logs you out if you go idle outside your 'office hours' so you can log in the same account(s) at home. In perl so may not work on MS Windows. The Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger (IM) system is good, but it was lacking a feature to automatically log you off outside office hours, in case you used the same MSN or other protocol ID for work and personal purposes, so you'd annoyingly have to log on to your remote work machine...
