Just for the heck of seeing if it could be done, I've managed to build a command line AIM client on my iBook. Obviously when I say "build" I mean I typed "./configure" and "make install"; I didn't actually program the bugger.

Neat little app. Next goal... ssh into the iBook and ntame my way from work. We'll show those nasty work censors who's boss. Or at least have learned a little about ssh. Will be nice to have access to my box from work, if it works.
