I do the same thing here. Its pretty simple. Create the proper chatscript
and options files with whats needed for those connects, and write a little
script to copy them to options/chatscript when needed. Could be a little
smarter, to figure out who you want to connect to at some point, but for
me thats not neccessary, so I just do it the 'easy' way. Its not pretty, with
little buttons and bows, it just works and does the job thats needed. Its
no bid deal, really. But these folks that want it all handed to them, and
don't care to do anything for themselves, should go along, follow uSlop
right over the edge, just like little lemmings.
