I beleive lots of us is familiar with Yahoo!'s I'm Online images on websites, blogs, myspace, friendster, etc. Some of us might not prefer the over-fancy Yahoo Messenger service (I know I am), prefer Gtalk, and wanted an online indicator for their sites. Jon Burrows have a solution for you. He hosted a Gtalk Online Status bot that will check your online status and provide an image of your status.

Using this service is easy. Just add gtalkonlinestatus@gmail.com into your buddy list then send ENCSTRING to the bot to get your encrypted string. The url or your status image will appear at http://jabsv5.jonburrows.co.uk/gtalkstatus/5/your-enc-string.jpg . For more options of changing images visit this page
