How to chat on https://Diasporapod.no

Here is a quick guide on how to chat on https://diasporapod.no

The web interface for chat has been enabled as well, you follow the step below here,
then use the web interface to chat with users (on the right side of the screen you open the chat window).

Enable chat for a contact groups:
I recommend that you create a new group named ‘chat’, then click the speech bubble in top right for that group,
then you add the people you want to chat to to that group as well as the others you feel they fit in.
This enables you to control very specific who you enable chat with.

In my example I’ve enabled it for the whole group named ‘following’.

How to chat with a desktop \ mobile xmpp client:
After doing this you need to set up a xmpp client,
you find such clients on Linux \ Windows \ Android etc.
In this example I use ‘Pidgin’, you can download and install it from here: https://pidgin.im/

After installation you need to configure your user account and server setup.
Click ‘Accounts -> Manage accounts’ after starting pidgin.

Set up your username and password for https://diasporapod.no
And set up the server setting like it’s shown in the pictures.

When this has been done – enable your account and you will see contacts being online.
Feel free to add me and test with that, I will reply as soon as I can.

 

 

Writing stable 3dsmax plugins

As you can see under ‘Open source software’  I do a lot of development for 3dsmax.
One of the most frustrating thing about that is debugging.

I’ve been fighting a couple of bugs both at work and at home, so tonight I sat down and looked for some help.

I came across this blog article:

It has some very good examples and instructions on what you can do to help you with debugging, and is really worth a read.
