We've Been Assimilated

For folks keeping score on the IM front,'s Jabber server now has an MSN messaging gateway established. If you use MSN, I can be reached at on that network.

As always, I'm inviting anyone who's on MSN or another IM network to consider hitting the link above and trying out a Jabber client. With our Jabber server, you can still talk to all your contacts from AOL, Yahoo!, or MSN while transitioning to an open standard in messaging that doesn't involve support of the overall brokenness of instant messaging over the Internet.


Erm...I hesitate to mention it in front of this crowd, but I've been trying to install the Jabber since last week and I can't get past the pop-up dialogue box wherein I try to connect with the Pudding Bowl.

It's written around Exodus, but the basic server information, etc. should still work.
