Chat

What is this board about? What are the guidelines? This is also where I'll post general announcements about things that are going on with the board.

Chat

**posting here so it's at the top of a thread**

here is how to get into chat

start by getting an account with an XMPP-friendly service (the ones i know of are jabber and google talk). if you already have one, that will work fine. if you don't have one, and don't want to sign up directly with jabber or google, i can set up your very own jabber account @thisthingwedo.com. and you're pretty much guaranteed the user name you want, since there are currently only 2 addresses taken (that is, jigsawanalogy and reluctanttop).

then get an IM client that will work with XMPP (i know that pidgin will work, because that's what i use. go to http://www.jabber.org/web/Clients for a list of clients and links to download them.

instructions for configuring pidgin for the chat:

in the buddies menu at the top, click "join a chat." (you may want to choose "add a chat" so that it will show up in your buddy list.)

choose an account that is XMPP compatible (google talk or jabber work, i don't know what else will).

the room is "ttwd"
the server is "conference.jabber.thisthingwedo.com"

your handle is whatever you want it to be.

right now, there is no password.

so let me know if someone not on my computer/at my IP address is able to get it running, ok? :)

and PM me if you want a jabber account at thisthingwedo.com, because so far as i can tell, i have to add all accounts manually.

here's a world time zone map.

10pm in NY is 2am in England. but i think we can work to get a couple of chat times happening, so that should be all right. :)

i've noticed that others have signed into chat when i wasn't there, so the up side is that it works!! yay! now we just have to coordinate being online at the same time.

No problem JA! :)

I just went through the move situation last August so I understand completely. I'm sure I'll get busy and disappear for a while at time and won't have nearly as good a reason. I look forward to chatting with you when it works out. :)

Sorry I haven't been around to chat. That is something that I would love to do, but it seems with the new baby and settling in to a routine around the holidays is proving to be a little tricky. Luckily Levi is the best baby I have ever met. He sleeps like a dream and loves to lay on the floor and observe everything. Between my three children, doctors' appointments, holidays, and deer season (my husband is an avid deer hunter) I rarely even get to see the computer. Hopefully after the first of the year I will have more time to spend on here. See ya guys later. :thud:

Just lately it has been very noticeable when you do find the time to log in to this board. You really get things moving. Without someone to do this, we can get a bit quiet. So thanks!

PS does anybody know what happened to Topper and GF1? I really miss them of late!

Don't know what happened to them, but I have been wondering the same thing.

By the way thanks for the nice words Eayore.

I understand everyone is busy these days. I get busy too and disappear from time to time. I'm only posting to let anyone know who might be around. :)

I'm in chat right now. (grin)
