user95: is there anyways to get messages of buddies who change their message, when they are still away?

We have been running a light-weight BuddyGopher away message crawler to manually check away messages of every online&&away buddy in 90 minute intervals. This is in addition to our OSCAR array that always collects your AIM buddies new away messages. Manual away message collection helps to ensure the accuracy of our status database, and it increases our live content accuracy. Hooray for standards!

We use a lot of Perl, Berkeley DB and PostgreSQL to accomplish this big data collection on our present node.

In the summertime months, one might question this extreme dedication to unique micro-content.
