Random Away Phrases

Submitted By Edgar Almeida (the-iguana)


Based on the famous /brb script, i created the away script.
Used code from the /brb and some of my favorite phrases the script already had, added some of the away messages available at and some out of my mind.

How to use:
simply type /away or %_away if not at the beginning of the phrase.
You can also make adium use %_away as auto-reply so it gives random away messages.

Changed the /brb for me but hey, since it done i decided to upload it so others can use too.

i'm not an expert, so it can have bugs (never had one)

(the screenshot: lucky me, when i wanted a screenshot for this, a friend of mine came to complain about vista. mwahahahaha. and yup, thats 5am. going to sleep now. see ya)

if you wish you can suggest a phrase and i'll add it. of course you'll be credited for it.


Edit 1:
added: "Not here, my gun needs more ninja sticks" (came from joking about a movie with friends)

Edit 2:
added: "uʍop ǝpısdn ɯ,ı 'ıɐɯɥo" (i don't know, this idea simply came up)

Edit 3:
added: "I swear to drunk I'm not God"
"dont look at me in that tone of voice."
"I'm not crazy just ask my toaster."
"I am lost. I have gone to find myself, if I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait."
"Don't follow me, I am lost too!"
"I smile because i have no idea what's going on. "
"I hate when I wish on a star only to realize afterward that I just wished on an airplane."
(all from

Edit 4:
added: "I think it's wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly.",
"If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that considered a hostage situation?"
"Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died."
"If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?"

Very good script, how made this messages as auto replay just when AWAY?

# by the-iguana on 09/03/08 at 15:12:14

i made a custom away state in the state menu, and added the auto-reply with custom message and typed there %_away.
it will reply custom messages everytime someone starts a conversation.

Obrigado ;)

Hey iguana - does your solution for the auto-reply that you responded to yamada.joe still work?

I can't figure it out for the life of me... :-/

# by the-iguana on 11/16/10 at 15:25:16

Yes, it still works. i have the latest version and still works for me.
i'm at work right now, but if i have the time later at night i'll try to add some screenshots showing how to do it. ;)
