Over roughly the past week or so, Cemetech has gained various new minor improvements and features. These have been added in two areas, SAX and styles. First, SAX, the Simultaneous Asynchronous eXchange AJAX chat widget in the sidebar, is now more intelligent than ever. Using natural-language phrases such as "Where's username?" or "What is username up to?", the Cemetech server will respond in SAX with the online status, last appearance, and away message of the user, if applicable. Setting one's away message is as easy as saying something like "I'm going to the store for a while." If asked about the user, SAX will respond that "username is going to the store for a while." It performs all pronoun and proper noun number changes automatically. Finally, SAX now has a !pm or /pm command. When followed by a username and a short message, the command will send a PM with the specified text to the specified username.

The second area of improvements is in template styles. I removed the old CemetechGrays templates that were causing troubles for those who switched to them, and instead created CemetechLiteBlue and CemetechLiteGreen style variations of the CemetechLite theme. This morning, I added a final piece to each, whereby the toolbar buttons at the top of the page change color to match the rest of the page. Enjoy!
