This GAIM plugin has now been updated! Does exactly what it did before, but now it works for newer versions. To rehash, the everything2 plugin allows you to easily make links to everything2 in GAIM messages. It hasn't worked since the .1x series, but this update fixes it.
To find it, go to http://www.sccs.swarthmore.edu/~fwph/code.html . I have not heard from the original author of the code to put it on sourceforge
(yes, this write-up only makes sense in the context of the rest of the node, but it's a fairly important bit of news for it)
