Chinwag in 2018

Happy New Year, for a start! Hope you’re having a good one so far! In a couple of months, it’ll be three years since Chinwag went live. It started out as a tutorial on how to set up your own XMPP server, and I nearly shut it down at the end of writing that. Instead, I left it running and it started attracting users almost immediately. I got a lot of positive feedback as I don’t do things that lead to a lot of downtime, even if I do occasionally reboot things to enable a feature that really should go through some kind of testing first …

Current Chinwag Services

A few updates, and some new features have been added to the Chinwag stable. We’re always looking for new ways to communicate with people, and we’ll deploy anything that looks promising in that regard to have a bit of a play around with. As of now we’ve got the following services freely available to anyone to use. Chinwag Messaging: our instant messaging service is the primary reason we’re here and isn’t going anywhere in a hurry.
