When I suggest features, the world sits up and takes notice -- me. : - ) 

How about enabling of URIs for their helper applications as in when I type in aim:TheBigWhiteHorse a hyperlink to send instant messages to TheBigWhiteHorse comes up on b2? I've been thinking of this like a few days and if hyperlinks can be enabled on b2, then why not AIM, ICQ, Jabber, even Yahoo! Messenger?

Well, AIM and YIM could be possible, just like http and mail. All they require is a regex to find the strings 'aim:' or 'yim:' and change all the characters until the next space or punctuation into a link. This is likely to cause 'bugs' or undesired behaviour though.

hyperlinks are possible 'cos they're simple html - to send instant messages to AIM, ICQ, Yahoo Messenger, etc, requires use of different protocols; each is different, some are proprietary. Could be possible, but very complicated.
Besides, what to do if user is not logged in?

Alternative: some services, like ICQ and Yahoo, provide some code that you can use on your webpage to indicate if you are online, and allow people to send you instant messages from your webpage. Try that, it might work.

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.
