While I had gaim installed on my computer for quite sometime, I was not the really using it to the fullest… Was basically using it as a substitute for yahoo messenger.
Right now I am logged on to my yahoo, msn, aol as well as jabber accounts (It’s a different matter than on my aol and jabber I have just one friend each and on msn none :-D). In fact I am using two jabber accounts – one at jabber.org (to communicate with the world at large) and one on the local jabber server. (For IIML people, this is exodus I am talking about.)
Yeah, since this internal messaging is referred to by the name of the most popular client (exodus), I somehow had not realized that I could use gaim. Probably at some point of time I had noticed it, but somehow did not pursue it. Finally yesterday, when Diwaker threatened not entertain any queries of mine unless I go for jabber, I was forced to create a jabber account 😀 And that’s when I visited the site and for the first time very consciously realized that exodus was nothing but a jabber client and what was running behind it was nothing but a jabber server!! So, now I am using it to log on to the internal server too (and yeah – it’s a very good thing to have an internal service like this. Only the problem of running a different client kept me away from using it!)
