Need to make the @ sign initiate the drop down.

I checked it out and could not find an option to initiate the autosuggest plugin only when a specific character is typed. In this case I need it to be the at sign '@'.

I see it has the option to set a minimum number of characters:
minChars: number (1 by default)

However, I need for the dropdown to NOT show until the @ sign is typed.

    Drew, are you around for a couple of quick questions?
