As you may know we were working on using the XS school server, which runs ejabbered, so we would have our own little community. That didn't work out so now we have a regular ubuntu machine running just ejabbered. Unfortunately it doesn't work out of the box. I found this which states that you have to apply some patches to ejabbered to get it working with the XOs. Henry installed ejabbered on his machine so we can play around with it. One problem I just realized is that aren't there firewalls between us and the rest of the internets on the network we're on? We need to be able to test this with someone from outside the network. Have to figure that out Monday...

Yay NY

So to wrap up last week. (Shoulda posted this Friday). The hostname changes are done. And the server is kinda done. The end.

Ok more. The server is running but the docs for XS aren't good at all so we didn't really know what to do trying to set it up. According to Henry (he did this) the server gets connections from the computers but nothing happens afterward. By tomorrow I hope we can get this done.
