Is there anyway I can tell if a friend is online without starting Starcraft 2 up? A program or a website would be sufficient.
Just so you know why i'm asking this: One of my friends doesn't use IM's or any other form of chatting online and I don't want to waste my money calling him by phone each time I want to play Starcraft 2. And the initial loading time of Starcraft 2 is just too long, just to realize he is not online and I exit the game.
I don't want Starcaft 2 running all the time either, so don't give me that answer!
