Well, after some browsing of the
Wumpus has put together a more comprehensive list…. including these (very handy) ideas:
What you need to do to have conference calls:
Open up a copy of Google Talk on all computers with which you wish to conference. After one copy is opened make a new shortcut for Google Talk but at the end of it add /nomutex. If you installed it to the default folder then your shortcut should read “C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe” /nomutex. Open 2 instances of the software on every user’s computer.
After this start a chain:
User 1 should connect on one instance to user 2. User 2 will connect on his second instance to user 3. User 3 will connect using his second instance back to user 1.
With this chain everyone is connected to everyone
Nickname & Status Message
To change your nickname you need to go to you account properties in your Gmail account and change the name there.As a result all of your emails will have that nick as well, there is no way to seperate the two. You can add a website in your away message, it will be clickable in conversation windows.
/nomutex: allows you to open more than one instance of Google Talk. /factoryreset: set settings back to default. /mailto firstname.lastname@example.org: send an email with Gmail. /s upgrade: used when upgrading Google Talk.
