Für Leute aus gibt es nun auch einen Chat bei :


Für User auf Nerdculture.de oder Nerdica.net (oder anderer Server im Fediverse mit XMPP Unterstuetzung) ist die Teilnahme recht einfach: XMPP Client starten und dem Chat beitreten.

Nerdculture.de/Nerdica.net User koennen auf hookipa.net/nerdculture-xmpp-s weitere Informationen zu XMPP bekommen.

There is a new article about on Heise Tipps & Tricks (German):


Not a perfect article, but at least some coverage. I would appreciate more coverage about XMPP in the media and a polite and friendly feedback to the authors if there are some mistakes within an article. :-)

I've just blocked role account names on my server. I think it's too misleading when someone else is using admin/root/support as a regular XMPP account...

Dear & users,

Apples Addressbook app supports the use of addresses in contacts.
Is there a plugin or similar to display the presence status (maybe via Web-Presence) in Apples Mail.app? Would like to see this in Mail.app as well...

Additional chat functions within Mail.app is a plus...

The upcoming is coming closer and closer and my wish to all 'participants' and all people from within the Chaos movement is to remember the motto of : "Tuwat" - namely not using the large networks of surveillance capitalism, but to ! and use & promote alternatives such as instead of Twitter, for messaging, instead of Instagram/Flickr, instead of YT and so on.

Maybe I've just registered & set up a new domain for on xmpp.social/

Mal ne doofe Frage zu
und O365/M365:
Beim Internet Explorer musse MS eine hohe Strafe zahlen, weil es den IE mit Windows gekoppelt und Wettbewerber dadurch benachteiligt hatte.

Existiert heutzutage mit MS Teams und O365 nicht das gleiche kartellrechtliche Problem in Gruen?
Auch hier behindert MS doch durch "Teams ist kostenlos bei o365 dabei" den Wettbewerb mit anderen, wenn man sich so anschaut, wieviele Firmen trotz Schrems-II grad Richtung MS Teams marschieren?

There is an chat room on retrocomputing@chat.hookipa.ne - and now (after @mike made me aware of the issue) you can even write in there after I changed the room setting to unmoderated! ;-)

When you left your old company and chat with one of the service partner engineers via and he tells you this:
"I'm very thankful because it was a great project. And really I was happy to work with you and costa guys. We have been a great team"

... and you know it's true, because he was always there for you, even without sales order or project code and helped a lot of problems to solve - because he likes to work on that project.

Sometimes there are good IT stories as well - like this.

Apropos: wer die Nase voll von / hat, kann ja mal ausprobieren, zum Beispiel auf hookipa.net/

Kommste morgens an den Arbeits-Laptop, hängt erstmal mit "Keine Rückmeldung". Killste das Ding im Taskmanager, sagt es dir "Lync... Startvorgang" und ist dann weg.
a) Warum hängt S4B ständig? (mehrmals die Woche)
b) Ist das so normal, dass es hängt?
c) Warum heißt es S4B, wenn es Lync ist oder vice versa?
d) Warum sagt es beim Beenden "Startvorgang"?
e) Wieso braucht es beim Start so lange?
f) Wieso zeigt es mir die letzten Chats (Inhalt) nicht an?
g) WTF?
