    Oh, found a job listing that has the word 'jabber' in it. :D

    Ah, fixed now

  5. Guus

    Ah, we recently changed providers and IP - maybe your computer was trying to resolve that URL (which is a new post) on the old server.

  6. Guus

    the old server won't have that post.

  7. moparisthebest

    Ah possible, hopefully you don't have a secret round-robin proxy somewhere :/

  8. Guus

    Not knowingly. :)

    In a rare occurence of my professional life mixing with my private life, I had Matt's voice being broadcast through my living room earlier tonight (FOSDEMs video recordings have been made available quickly, this year - and casting stuff on my living room television got easier). I tried to make my wife pay attention, but alas, turns out that speech therapists do not gravitate naturally towards presentations on improved authentication mechanisms.

    Winfried's recording hasn't made it to the website yet though?

  11. Zash

    As I understand the speaker needs to review it afterwards before it's published, maybe hasn't done that yet (e.g. due to travel or so)

    While showering I remembered reading the article from PSYC about XMPP not having multicasting and being inefficient and that these issues were dismissed or something like that. Is it true XMPP is as inefficient as e.g. SMTP, unicasting every stanza to each user individually instead of e.g. letting the participating server figure out the clients to which MUC stanzas should be sent?

    Squeaky Latex Folf, XEP-0033 can be used for multicast. It's considered stable since 2004. But it's not being used in typical MUC deployments

  14. Squeaky Latex Folf

    I remember XEP-0033 was criticized as well in that article.
