2006 South Central USA Regional Programming Contest
Intl Prog Contest
South Central US Regional
Jabber ServerThis year, we will be running a central Jabber instant messaging server in order to help all of the sites stay in communication both before and during the contest. This page should help you setup your Jabber client so that you can connect to the contest Jabber server.
Some details, such as username and password, will be communicated with each individual who is on the [Acm2006-sites] mailing list. If you know of other people who also need access to the Jabber server, please contact Isaac Traxler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Although there are many available Jabber clients and most should work fine, we recommend the use of Gaim on Windows and Linux, and Adium on Mac OS X. Also, when you first login, your contact list (roster) should already contain all of the other contacts for the SCUSA contest.
Gaim (Windows, Linux)Gaim is available for free download from http://gaim.sourceforge.net/, and is frequently installed by default on many Linux distribututions.
Upon initially starting Gaim, you will be prompted to add a new account.
Adium (Mac OS X)Adium is available for free download from http://www.adiumx.com/. Upon initially starting Adium, you will be taken to the "Accounts" pane of the preferences window.
