Google-Talk is live

Posted in Commentary at 9:32 pm by Michael Sweeney Media

I’m on Google’s new IM based on Jabber right now šŸ™‚ Who needs to wait for official notice that it’s up and who needs the stinking Windows software that Google is offering. I set up mine using my old new friend Adium which I’ve mentioned before. The settings for my configuration are:

— For iChat, just enter the information above.
1. Add an account, select “Jabber” as the protocol.
2. Your screen name is everything before the ‘’.
3. Server is ‘’.
4. Click “show more options” and make sure “use TLS if available” is checked. Leave “Force old SSL” and “allow plaintext…” unchecked for now. Connection port should be 5222, connection server should be ‘’ without the quotes.
5. Ta-da! Just login and you should be good-to-go.

These settings come from Smash’s World which was kind enough to post them. So, if you feel the need, send a note on Google to

Yahhhooooo.. whoops! Wrong mega-company šŸ˜‰
