Truncated iChat status mess

iChat is a nice little application, one that I find myself using more and more each day.

It’s not without its limitations, however. For instance, it would appear that status messages get truncated at 25 characters. That can lead to some ambiguous status messages.

Take, for example, Dunstan’s cryptic note:

"Busy @ Apple: Don’t call unless you’re my bo"

Drew put two and two together and was able to reverse-engineer the message.
