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...

Re: Yahoo after August 5

August 6 came and went and Adium still connected. This morning (August 19), however, I received the following message from yahoomessenger after starting Adium: It’s time to upgrade! Your version of Yahoo Messenger is currently being discontinued, and will no longer work as of August 31, 2016. Get th...

Re: Sparkle security vulnerability

Robby, I've been happily running v.1.6hgr5915 for just over a year. I'm using it because, at the time, it was the only version of Adium that would connect me to Yahoo. I'm assuming it's vulnerable, given its age. Will the new secure release work with Yahoo on an older Mac?

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

On a whim, I recently installed the adium-adium 1.6hgr5896 nightly build and discovered, much to my delight, that it connects to Yahoo without a problem! This is on an older iMac running OSX 10.6.8. It's great to have Adium back in use. I really hated that butt-ugly Yahoo client. My thanks to everyo...

this looks promising: https://trac.adium.im/ticket/16678 Changed 9 days ago by reanimus I went ahead and made a small change in ssl-cdsa.c that seems to fix the issue Yahoo is experiencing.

Re: Yahoo "unidentified error" or no connection?

Again, though, I keep coming back to the fact that Yahoo's own four-year-old Messenger app continues to work perfectly on older versions of OSX. Why this much older app works while a much newer Adium doesn't continues to perplex and would seem to point to something being different on Yahoo's end.

I have a few people on other services. Most of the people I message with on a daily basis are on Yahoo, though.
