Right, i want to run multiple copies of Hotline, so I can drag stuff in from different servers at the same time....but, I can't get hotline to have multiple connections and I even tried downloading two copies of hotline to open both at the same time! Nope didn't work, only one hotline at one time it appears, bum

I run multiple (3+) copies of some programs at a time. To do this simply duplicate the entire application and its folder and place a duplicate copy of the preference file for that application in each folder at the same level as each application.

Open Hotline folder. Highlight Hotline. Hit Apple-D. Repeat.
Works like a charm. I have 5 copies of the app in the one folder.
No need to duplicate the whole folder, or prefs - just the app in Hotlines case.
