    I´ve searched but can´t find this, so here goes -

    What happened to the "thinking bubble" in iChat? Today it´s suddenly gone - I can´t see when my buddies are typing. I loved that feature, and it´s really frustrating not to have it. I´ve looked in preferences, but can´t find anything that lets me turn it on or off.

    I know this only works with certain people for me. If they use AIM, I think they have to have the "allow people to see when I'm typing" feature enabled, or something like that.

    That makes sense - most of my buddies have AIM, so they must've activated this feature, and this in turn has enabled them to see when I'm typing, too. But the bubble has been there with other Mac-using iChatters, too - and now it's gone. Is there a place in iChat to activate something like "allow people to see when I'm typing"?
