David Lomas and I have been beavering away on the next version of QUBE. It's ready at last!
I think you'll like it. We've added the changes you asked for.
But far more important QUBE is now enterprise-social media. you can connect with your qubot network like never before.
My favorite is the "Come Here!" button which allows you to get qubot-face-to-qubot-face instantly
You can download the new QUBE at http://QUBE.cc
