Way to search for buddies in iChat? - Mac Applications & Software

iChat A/V (the first incarnation of iChat I've tried) seems to only want to chat with people whose AIM or .Mac names you know in advance. I remember years ago with ICQ, if I wanted to chat with someone in Latvia, I could get a list of everyone who was online in Latvia. Is there any way with iChat to search by name, location, interests, or other profile information? Or is there another AIM client with better search options that will dig up the names, who you can then chat with in iChat? John -- Photo gallery: [url]http://www.pbase.com/john_russell/[/url]...

    No such option exists.
