Good, that means either I'm not crazy, or we both are.

Indeed.  And although I have the daemon running in a simple
while(1)... loop, and sending only one (atm, probably 5) message per
loop, I'm destined to run into that "Woah, slow down there buddy"
pain from the AIM servers.

That's something to look into.  Thanks for mentioning that.

I've got it written now so it's using simple OOP calls, and will
implement the SOAP/XML/RPC feature when I've got more of the engine
written.  I'll keep you posted on the speed issue, and if I do in
fact use Jabber.  (Prerequisite: It's gotta work through our
firewall, I can't "work" all day?! ;))
