There is one frequently running @jabber.org, let me know if you want a
specific username/password to test with.

Hmm... are you sure that you have etherx running?  Etherx is a background
daemon that routes the XML data around, and also feeds the configuration
to the Jabber transport.

./etherx &
./jabbertransport &

That should fire everything up correctly if you have it installed
normally.  Run "./jabbertransport -D" for more debugging info if it still
isn't working.

It may be quiet on the list lately, but it's been busy in the background! 
The new server had a bad DIMM which took forever to determine(many
corrupted files and reinstalls later...).  The ICQ transport in CVS is
starting to shape up and work in a fairly usable way also... And I've
figured out how to add a Jabber client into Mozilla, but it depends on the
new networking library(necko/netwerk) landing in the next month.
