Look to the upper-left of these words and you will see a box with the heading “Chat”. Below it are orange words that should say “The Hairy Beast Is Online”
This is an IM widget The Beast just installed last night to see what it does. So far it appears to do nothing but irritate him, because nobody has tried it out yet.
However it is useful to see who comes on and off the blog, because whenever anybody connects a Meebo icon lights up and you can literally see them come and go. Currently two users are on this page and have been for 402 minutes and 112 minutes, respectively. Interesting – perhaps they are at lunch?
The Beast does not like blogging about blogging – he thinks there is too much of that about in the community already, but this was too interesting to ignore. Somebody should try this thingie out and send him a message, just to see if it works.
