You don’t know what HyperIM is? C’mon… your friendsâ€™ friends are using it to show their coolest messenger status and that is not all. Take a peek here and don’t stand there and peek like a geek, go ahead and download it to get the most coolest messenger tool ever!
Now that you know what HyperYM is let me give you my first plugin for this tool: HDD Thermometer . This plugin will enable you to poll the current Hard-Disks temperature and display it in all the instant messengers supported by HyperIM : Google Talk Miranda IM, Skype, Trillian, Windows Live Messenger, Xfire, Yahoo! Messenger.
In order to get the Hard drive temperature you hardware must support SMART Temperature control (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology ) . If you don’t know what the heck is S.M.A.R.T don’t worry just download the plugin, install it and see if it detects your hardware.
Here is how the plugin config window looks like:
And here is how the harddisk temperature macros will look like:
Many thanks to Codename (Adrian Cretu) for his support on the HyperIM plugins sdk, tests and ideas for this little plugin.
