I recently decided to switch voer to MirandaIM from Trillian Basic. It's kind of hard to figure Miranda out, so i had a couple questions regarding it... -Is there a way to make it so it connects to my chosen IMing programs as soon as I log in? It's a pain in the ass to have to go through each one and select "Connect" manually. -How do I make it so the actual chat window looks like iChat's "bubbles"? I remember I asked this question a while back, but back then, I gave up on Miranda because I thought it was too hard to figure out. I'm giving it another go though, and I want to know how to achieve this effect. I know it's possible, I just don't know how to do it. If you need a picture to show what iChat's bubbles look like, just let me know and I'll gladly show you. -How do I make it so that in my contact list, I ONLY see their nicknames? Because it shows me a whole bunch of other crap I dont need to know, and its so much that it squishes their names and it just looks cluttered and horrible. I think that's about it. Thanks!
