  Usage: set busy string

Sets your "busy" string. When it is set and people either "finger" you or "tell" something to you, they will be shown this busy string.

Examples you might use are:

set busy is really busy right now
set busy will be back in 5 minutes
set busy will be idle for a while...

Typing any command clears your "busy" string if it is set; you don't have to clear it yourself.
