Hi Peter,

Just wondering if you've had any luck tracking down the TVJab developer(s). Heck we're even willing to pay a bit of money just to have them remove the expiration date for version 0.74.

The latest version also had this problem a few months ago but the developer removed the expiration on that version. Unfortunately the newer versions introduced a bug that slows everything in OS 9 down to a crawl, which is why we're still using 0.74.

The developer(s) are apparently off doing other projects and impossible to find, so I'm in a bind. Are there any other Mac OS 9 clients we can use to connect to Jabber?
