Started writing a new IM system
I tried out jabber, first I was excited but after a while I became a bit annoyed at the complexity.
- no XML
- GnuPG/PGP message encryption
- simplest possible protocol (UDP)
- interface to any good tool already existing (no NIH outside core protocol/service)
Feel free to comment/flame me :-) Will write an article in which I develop my ideas some day when the sun does shine like today. The skis are waiting.
