    Do you guys use Jabber? We set up a server for ED/EDF just FYI. It should be public within the next few days.

    I'd rather have a gameserver.

    It's like a cross between IM and IRC. You can use it with Pidgin or any other IM client. You can have 1 on 1 IM convos or create rooms/channels like IRC, and it's on it's hosted on the ED network so it's all Ediots.

    It's a newer protocol and since it's based on XMPP you can use it to talk to anyone with an IM account.

    I personally like IRC better but that's only because I don't use IM. If you are looking for something a little more "today", this is the way to go.
