Question. Have you guys ever thought about running a Jabber Server verces an IRC Server? Or both. I am currently working on one at work (internally) CHat rooms inside with differnt areas (Teachers, Techs, Admins) and User lists can be updated automaticly. Maybe not for all teh users but very usefull for a group of people.. Also With openfire you can create a help link which brings up a Web based chat and can be sent to selected members of Jabber. Just an Idea.
