I actually have a (poorly implemented) set of Comedian-themed menubar icons. I removed them because the reviews were just too low. I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to implement the comedian button and blood splatter in an icon that small. (only 22 px square.)

Yes, I'm replying to myself because I like to help people once I've solved my problem. Sorry, was having some issues because I'm running Nambu and this script at the same time. Twitter has an API refresh cap of 70 refreshes an hour, and I was running Nambu with dynamic refreshes. With that, AND this script updating every 2 minutes, it was overloading Twitter and I was getting locked out towards last third of every hour. There are several ways to solve this problem - here is what I did:

I didn't want to change my Nambu refresh rate, because that results in crappy updates for all my followed tweets. So I cracked open the twitter.rb file inside the Twitter.AdiumScripts package (right-click, and view package contents.) Around line 56 or so there's an "if" condition that controls the timer ("if ( - last.to_i) > 120 || last_twitter == ''") The number 120 is the number of seconds between refreshes (correct me if I'm wrong). Change this number to the desired refresh rate. I changed mine to 900, to refresh on the quarter-hour. This means only 4 of my 70 hourly refreshes are used up, freeing 66 up for Nambu. Hope this helps someone - I know all you scripters are rolling your eyes at the obviousness of this info, but there are plenty out there with little or no scripting knowledge that may gain something from this. Cheers!

The connection status is already there - to keep the file size down, it's the same animation as alert. (see update notes on 04-06) I love the idea of Walter Kovacs as the invisible status. I've submitted an update with the new invisible Adiumy. Let me know if it works for you!

AWESOME! I'm using your big blacy set as we speak - VERY nice. This would be a welcome addition to the stuff I've done (admittedly, the menubar icon set and status set are not as quality as my dock icons. I'd welcome whatever Watchmen material you're willing to submit.)

This script works, but I'm having some issues with the twitter "maximum requests" error since I added it. How often does this script update?
