Hi. I was just wondering if it is possible to check if someone is online. For example if someone isn't on your buddy list and you just want to see if they are on AIM before you send them an IM. I don't see a specific example of it anywhere in the source. Is the only way to add them to the buddy list and wait for AIM to send you status info on them, or can you do it 'on the fly'? Thanks.
