    Hey FN,

    You said you were looking for a job and wanted to break into the sector...... Then you said you had a job........ And now you are still looking into getting a job........

    Little confused to say the least.

    Re: MSN, E-mail address

    Ok ... to follow on from the great and glorious Russdev ...

    @FN

    Those people who want to give out their MSN / Windows Messenger contact accounts can do so within their profile. This appears as the MSN button below their post (which is how you got mine ... I don't have a problem with this otherwise I would not have it in my profile!)

    One thing you need to be aware of (as do a few others) is the fact that people may not be easily able to just respond to queries from others via IM.

    Many of us have very busy jobs (someone has to tell war stories to the minions!) and we may not be able to respond immediately. Some of us may not wish to spend all day answering questions that could also be solved by using the benevolent god 'Google'. Some of us may already have had to spend a few hours in the evening talking to people that are looking to get a leg up in the world of IT but could actually do with spending a bit more time at College to get the same amount of information (and get lovely certificates at the end of it!)

    That is my main concern about people using my IM details ... they are there for emergencies, for colleagues or for friends (and yes ... I am happy to say I actually have some ... and I am honoured by the fact that a number of them are EduGeekers!)

    As for BoFH ... I have a lovely polished box with a Bokken inside ... it has written on the glass, 'in case of luser, break glass and LART!' ... I will eventually get my etherkiller framed too.

    localzuk: I got the feeling acrobson was against any other sort of communications channel along side the Edugeek forum, whereas other people (eg. your thread) thinks a Jabber server would be a perfect complement to the forum.

    :? WhOOOOO! I am not against anything, i am open to new ideas and suggestions constantly, however i am not afraid to voice my opinion (mainly to my management team) if i think something can be improved or approached from a different angle.

    What's all this about Jabber anyway :?:

    Re: MSN, E-mail address

    All this about jabber is a suggestion to have a jabber powered conference subsite or similar. That way, members can do im style chatting via edugeek and also from jabber clients if they can do.

    It would be similar to an edugeek IRC channel, but without IRC and its inherent stigma within many organisations.

    Re: MSN, E-mail address

    That would be the idea though, to have a web client available via edugeek for those of us who have normal jabber communication blocked. This is also why it would have to be members only, as otherwise it may be noticed by kids and turned into a chatroom.
