Adium Xtra Script and RT

I realize this maybe a very small minority of the RT users out there but:

time savings for both sender and receiver to have the direct url.

I am posting the Xtra to the Adium website soon. If you can’t wait

Open the zip file.
Right click (or control-click) the file rt.AdiumScripts and choose Show
Package Contents

Double click the file Contents/Resources/rt.scpt

set parms to “http://myurl/rt/Ticket/Display.html?id=” & rtnumber

with your url.

Save and close.

Double click rt.AdiumScripts to install.

If you double clicked first… right click the rt.AdiumScripts that was
copied to your Library/Application Support/Adium folder and pick up the
directions from there.

Again I recognize the potential audience will be small, but if anyone
finds it useful you are welcome to it.
