Nice job! *powers up*
I see you're tinkering with the default scripts quite a lot lately. At this rate, you'll probably make something big :)
Do you like ambient/electronic music? Then you should promote a talented artist! Help out here. (I'm serious. Just listen to his work at least!)

Looks pretty sweet, although I would suggest using different \ codes because it will overwrite any codes in the custom message system. I would suggest using the first 3 letters for each one too prevent this.
