Chat Room Tricks

Rolling Dice
Type "//roll"

Rolling More Dice
Type "//roll -dice ## -sides ###"

*You can roll 1-15 dice with 1-999 sides.

Send A Blank Line
Press "SPACE" then "ALT+0160"

*If you want to send 2 blank lines at once just copy what you
  just typed and hold down "SHIFT+INSERT" to paste until the
  box is full, then send it.

*You can also move text onto the next line by hitting "SPACE"
  then "ALT+0160" and holding down "SPACE" until there's no more
  room. This will push short phrases and words onto the next line.

ASCII Characters
I didn't feel like putting all those on here so I made them into a
text... That should be easier anyways. Plus you can DL it and print
it out if you can't remember them :) ...

Instant Message Tricks

Turning Your IMs On/Off
Open a new Instant Message, and enter "$IM_ON" or "$IM_OFF"
as the screen name, and anything in the message box. Then
just click "Send".

Blank Line in IMs
It's the same as in chat... just hit "SPACE" then "ALT+0160"
and send it.

Blank Everything!
Send "<a href>".

*Doing this will blank whatever they send and whatever you
  send, so you'll have to send "</a>" to stop blanking.

Superscript & Subscript
Superscript and Subscript are just html formatted text.
Just put the "<sup>" & "</sup>" tags around whatever
you want Superscripted (raised above the normal text level),
and put the "<sub>" & "</sub>" tags around whatever
you want Subscripted (opposite of Superscripted).

*For example:
<sup>H</sup>e<sub>y<sub>
Will make:
Hey

Scrolling Letters
Just insert "</html>" in-between the letters, including the
spaces, and it will scroll across, letter-by-letter, when sent.

Color-Changing-IM
Type '<body bgcolor="rrggbb"></html>' in an IM.

*The "rrggbb" part should be replaced by one of the following
  hexidecimal numbers:

Black
White
Red
Blue
Green
Yellow
Orange
000000
FFFFFF
FF0000

  this code over and over again, while changing the color each
  time.

E-mail Punter
Just fill the message box with "<h3>". And fill it full.

E-mail Spoofing
To spoof e-mail, or send mail from a fake address, you have to
have a program called Telnet. If you have Windows then the WS
Telnet program that comes with Windows is on your computer at:

C:\Windows\Telnet.exe           *Or wherever your Windows directory is.

Setup:

1) Run your telnet program.
2) In the menu, click "Terminal" the click "Preferences", or just hit "ALT+T" then "P".
    This will bring up your telnet-terminal preferences.
3) Make sure that the "Local Echo" option is checked or turned on.

Connect:

1) In the menu, click "Connect" then "Remote System" or just hit "ALT+C" then "R".
    This will bring up the "Connect" window.
2) Where it says "Host Name:", enter a website like "www.acidtrip.com".
3) Where it says "Port:" type "25".
    *Port 25 is the mail server of most every website.
4) Click the "Connect" button.

*You may have to try quite a few different websites before you're able to connect
  to one, but always make sure you're connecting to port #25.

Spoof:

1) Type: "Mail From: you@whatever.com" and hit "ENTER"
2) Type: "Rcpt To: victim@whereever.com" and hit "ENTER"
3) Type: "Data" and hit "ENTER"
    *Type "Subject:" and the subject after the "Data" command if you want a subject.
4) Type in your message, and don't worry about hitting the "ENTER" key... it'll just
    put you on the next line like always. So use it as you wish.
5) To tell the mail server that your message is finished and is ready to be sent put
    a period (".") on a line all by itself and hit "ENTER". This will send your e-mail.

*Test this on yourself, and watch what results you get... It's good to practice a little.

Keywords

     I didn't feel like putting all of those old keywords on here, so I made a text for them... everyone always asks for them anyways, so what the hell! No problem there. The newest keywords are also to numerous to place here on this very page, so I made them their own special little page, which is here. I've linked those ones so If you're on AOL you can just click and be there.
     I did put special AOL resource identifiers that are actually useful and/or fun to play with. Those are here. The Keyword text will no longer be updated, but the new webpage will be updated as often as I see fit. So enjoy them while they're here.

Old Keywords Text
New Keywords Web Page

AOL Resource Identifiers

     Resource Identifiers are just AOL Keywords that begin with "aol://" and consist mainly of number, with some letters in specific places. Resource Identifiers are AOL's network version of the internet's URLs (Uniform Resource Locater). They act and behave much like URL's but are harder to manipulate. I've listed the most useful one's here. I'll add some more, if there are any.

*Note: These are listed in numeric order.

aol://1722:Keyword

*This is just a keyword for a keyword. ?!??!?

aol://2707:

This is a request for something, though what I don't know.

aol://2719:

*The keyword for chat rooms at keyword "Chat". Note that the private room # is 2, and is not listed below.

*As soon as I figure out the conference rooms I'll add it.

aol://4400:####

AOL Software Library. Replace the #### with an actual number. Heh.

aol://4401:####:####

*A file from a software library. The first #### is the file library, and the second is the file number.

aol://5862:144/ftp.wherever.com

This uses AOL's 'so-called' secure FTP service to access FTP servers. Just type in the URL of any ftp server. You can also type in AOL users' Screen Names to see their web space.

aol://9293:ScreenName

This opens a new Instant Message to the ScreenName specified.

General (Other) AOL Tricks
General Sub Menu [Ghosting | Punting | BiggerProfile | Ascii Characters]


Ghosting

First off... there are two ways to ghost, one way involves FlashSessions and doesn't work for most AOLers anymore. The other uses your buddylist preferences. As long as you know that ghosting is not cloning, then you'll do fine.

The FlashSession Ghost

1) Make sure you're not signed on AOL.
2) In the Menu, click: "Mail" then "Setup FlashSession...".
3) Click "Select Names", check one of the screen names, and put in it's password.
4) After hitting ENTER or clicking "OK", click "Activate Session Now".
5) Check "Stay online when finished" and hit ENTER or click "Begin"
6) When the Signing On screen says "Checking Password" click "Cancel".
7) Sign on the usual way, and try IMing yourself to see if you're ghosting.

The BuddyList Ghost

1) Click "Setup" on your buddlist.
     *To get your buddylist up goto kw "BuddyList"
2) Click "Privacy Preferences"
3) Check "Block all AOL members and AOL Instant Messenger users" and click "Save"

When you do this, noone can IM you, locate you, or see you on their buddylist. If you're in a chat room though, you will be on the "People Here" list.

Punting

     To be quite blunt... punting is lame! But if you're going to punt at all you might as well use a prog. However... if you're trying to learn VB or something and would like to know exactly how punters work this is for you. If you're a little lamer that thinks punting at all is "cool" and that punting manually will make you cooler, you're a bigger idiot than I first suspected. So go away. I've no use for you. Shooo!
How to punt manually

1) If you're in a chat room, double click the person's name and keep the little
     window that comes up open. Or just add the person to your buddlist.
2) Open an IM to the person and fill it full with "<h3>" tags.
3) Copy the everything in there.
4) Send that IM and keep clicking the Send IM button on the buddlist or member box,
     and pasting and sending.

     Play around with this if you're programming, otherwise and even if, you're wasting your time.


Back to General (Other Tricks) Menu

Make a Bigger Profile

I'm gonna keep this short...

1) In a chat room... copy the little space in after your Screen Name.
     Or anyone else's SN, it's just a TAB. You could open up
     Notepad and hit the TAB key and copy that too...
2) While editing your profile...
- Press "CONTROL+BACKSPACE"
- Type in the new category.
- Press "SHIFT+INSERT" to paste the TAB or hit "ALT+E+C".
- Answer the new category...

Ascii Characters

     Like I said before... there's now way in hell I'm gonna put those damn ascii characters in an html chart. You'll have to trust my instinct and go with me on this and settle for a shitty little text chart.

AOL 4.0 Tricks


Chat Tricks:

Use <font color="#RRGGBB">TEXT</font> to change the color of your chat font.

Use <a href="web_address_or_keyword">TEXT</a> to send a link to chat.

Use <sup>T</sup>E<sub>X</sub>T to make wavy TEXT in chat.

Use <b>TEXT</b> to make text bold.

Use <i>TEXT</i> to make text italic.

Use <u>TEXT</u> to make text underlined.

Use <s>TEXT</s> to make text struck out.

     As far as IM tricks and KW tricks, etc., all the old ones work for that. The main difference was chat, which is why I put the above above (yes I'm being repetitive on purpose).      If I'm missing anything, which I prolly am, please send it to me, and if you do send something to me I'll be sure to give you credit. And if you want a link to your sight or e-mail addy please send that along with it.
