We now have our very own Instant Message Server.
What is Instant Messaging ?
Instant messaging is a set of communication technologies used for text-based
communication between two or more participants over the Internet or other
types of networks. IM–chat happens in real-time. Of importance is that online
chat and instant messaging differ from other technologies such as email due
to the perceived quasi-synchrony of the communications by the users. Our system
permit messages to be sent to users not then 'logged on'.
IM allows effective and efficient communication, allowing immediate receipt of
acknowledgment or reply. However IM is basically not necessarily supported by
transaction control. In many cases, instant messaging includes added features
which can make it even more popular. For example, users may see each other via
webcams, or talk directly for free over the Internet using a microphone and
headphones or loudspeakers. Many applications allow file transfers, although
they are usually limited in the permissible file-size.
This service is exclusivly for PCLinuxOS forum members. To sign up for a PCLOS-Talk
