    This is a simple question I can't find any help on. I want to know if it's possible to not synch the Address book and iChat to each other, like I want to be able to chat with them from the address book/voice command but not synch the names (like using their full name on ichat over there AIM name) I'm just use to seeing the AIM names.

    I have an iChat plugin called Chax that allows you to use your buddy's nickname from the Address Book. You can just set their nickname to whatever their AIM/Jabber account name is and it will work just fine.

    As far as an option that totally disables this feature, I couldn't find one doing a quick look through iChat's settings.

    Yep, i think that fits the description, thanks!

    One more question, when I do that "Chat with" speech command it does it ok, but the greeting is "..." anyway you know to change that?

    Thanks again :D
