xochat.org News

xochat.org is trundling along. Dying about once a week. It sometimes takes me a while to notice this. Until it is moved to a real server, which is just a question of how long it takes to prod along my volunteer sys admin to move it to a new donated server, it is not going to be very reliable. Basically, this means it is fine for getting a general idea of how collaboration works on the XO, but not useful for getting any sense of the reliability or performance of said collaboration.

I'm sure I speak for all the colorful little XOs in the Neighborhood View when I say "Thank you! So much! Even with the on again off again, it's been a total blast!"

cool... I think... just fumbling around... tried to connect and didn't get any other XOs, but did get a document with a table full of URLs, a piece of music and an XO library showing up in Neighborhood... just a coincidence, or some mysterious linux typo?
There must be some instructions around here somewhere.. I'll keep looking...

bob,

Yes... this is what I'm trying to warn you about. xochat.org my act weirdly, or not at all at this point. The problem is not in your set (maybe). If it is working, you shouldn't need instructions.

Hey-

A couple of weeks ago, I set xochat.org as my ejabberd server (with no apparent effect) and then, days later, after a reboot, my neighboorhood was populated with lots of xos. Awesome-even got a chat session working. Just as inexplicably, the xos disappeared by the end of the day, yet to return.

For now, I'll chalk this up to server issues...but as a newbie, I know there's a lot I don't know.

Thanks Tom!
