Re: Adium nightly build vs. Mac OS Sierra 10.12

In speaking with my wife more about this, it turns out that Adium doesn't actually crash. The app stays up. It just disconnects itself, and she has to reconnect to the network. We're both on the same XMPP service (Koderoot) and I never have disconnects. The only difference between our setups is the ...

Adium nightly build vs. Mac OS Sierra 10.12

Both my wife and I both run Adium nightly build v.1.6hgr5946 (installed ages ago to solve issues with Yahoo connectivity). I'm running it under Mac OS 10.9.5 without issue. My wife, however, is running it under Mac OS 10.12.6 and experiences Adium crashing multiple times throughout the day. Is there...

Re: Is this an Adium issue or my Jabber host?

I finally heard back from Koderoot via their Github page. It turns out, they had made OTR encryption required. But, after I reported the issue I was having, they discovered their implementation of OTR was preventing all MUC messages from going through. So, they've fiddled with things and messaging w...

Re: Is this an Adium issue or my Jabber host?

If it makes any difference, the version of Adium I'm running is 1.6hgr5946.
I haven't gotten a reply from Koderoot yet.

Is this an Adium issue or my Jabber host?

For the past two days, we have been experiencing an odd issue using Jabber on Adium. I can see my contact become active, and they can see me. And, we can see each other's statuses change through the day (Available, Away, etc.) But, none of our actual messages get through to each other. I don't see a...

Re: AIM jumping on the no third party app bandwagon?

Got the same message about AIM. I switched to Jabber after Yahoo went away and have been very happy. I doubt I'll miss AIM. It's only advantage to me was being able to IM to a phone number.

Re: Quit=No Duck?

Right click the app in the Dock, and select Preferences --> Keep in Dock. It's already a permanent part of my Dock. My wife gets the same thing on her Mac at work. No Duck in the Dock when the app is off. Just a big open space where it should be. The system knows it's there...When you mouse over th...

Re: Quit=No Duck?

Hmmmm...It seems you can't drag an icon from the Dock while the app is running. Or, at least, the Adium icon can't. It pops right back in place.

Quit=No Duck?

I'm sorry about posting this here, but I honestly get lost trying to wade through the official bug checking/reporting system to see if it's a known issue... When Adium is off, the Duck logo disappears from the OS X dock. The space for it is still there, and clicking on the empty space will launch Ad...

Re: XMPP network having issues?

Cool.
My wife and I are both on Koderoot, and were not able to connect yesterday. I saw that graphic and just assumed an overall downtime and not just Koderoot. Thanks, Robbie!

XMPP network having issues?

I'm not a tech, so I don't know much about this stuff, but, am I correct in thinking this chart (taken from koderoot.net) shows XMPP having some serious downtime today? https://munin.koderoot.net/kodenet/kodenet/prosody_uptime-day.png My wife and I have been trying to get Jabber working today, and h...

"Always show this contact" doesn't

Hi all. I have Adium set to hide offline contacts. However, I also have my wife's Jabber account toggled to "Always show this contact." I assumed this would make her account visible even if she was offline (and grayed-out.) Apparently, I'm wrong in this assumption. Her Jabber account never...

Thanks, again, Robby. I picked a new server from the list you linked to, and my wife and I are now connected again, sans Yahoo.

Re: Need a little help setting up Jabber account

Thanks for the reply, Robbie. You're always a great resource. I'll give a different server a try and see it that works. Also, FWIW, the web-based Yahoo Messenger (the one you use on the Yahoo website) doesn't speak to Adium. I just tried it (in Firefox) but my wife (using Adium) couldn't get my mess...

Need a little help setting up Jabber account

In light of Yahoo going away from Adium at the end of the month, I'm looking for alternatives that work in Adium. I thought I'd give Jabber a shot. But, I'm not sure I have it set-up right. I went to the Adium "Registering an XMPP Account" page and read through the instructions. I selected...

Re: Yahoo after August 5

I can't find any Sys Reqs for the new YM. I have to run an old version of OSX, due to a couple of mission-critical apps. I DL'ed the new YM, but I have a sneaking suspicion it won't even run on my machine. Wife and I are going to have to find some alternative to message each other throughout the day...
