Default Invisible AIM users

I love the invisible feature on the new version of AIM, but I hypocritically want to know when one of my friends is on and just invisible. Is there any way to know this besides IMing them from the offline list. Is there no software for this or am I going to have to write my own?

No because it would defeat the whole point.

If you want to see them, they'll have to be on - otherwise it would render, as David said the Invisible Mode useless!

Yeah - sounds like a good idea; I don't have AIM so I didn't even know it had an invisible mode but it sounds like a good idea. It may work. Doesn't hurt to try!

Well, thats wierd! Doesn't make any sense that while being Invisible it is possible to see whether that person is on.

It's true. Also - check another users Profile, then enter your friends in the little drop down bit. Their profile also shows up. Another one - when they come back online from Invisible Mode, keep your little arrow over their name - isntead of saying "X has been online for 1 minute", it'll say how long they've really been online. Stupid, no?
