Facebook chat not working on adium?


It wasn’t for me, so I searched finally came up with a solution.  Since the solution is rather techie, I figured I would throw it up on here sans-technobabble.

Step 1

The first step is to figure out your username, the easiest way to do this is to see what is set after the slash on your profile page.  Remember this, you will use it later on.  Note that this could also be a number, you will use the number later on in place of a name.

Step 2

The next step, we start to create the account.  Go to your Adium account window by selecting Adium from the menu bar and selecting preferences.  Go to add a new account – like you would for any other account – and select Jabber.

Step 3

This is the final step, you are almost done.  All you have to do is log in, enter the information like you see on the left and click ok.  That’s it.  Quick and painless.

A PSA about using internet on planes.

Your flight: now with more internet

Your flight: now with more internet

I thought I should throw this out there since this will probably become more and more prominent on planes over the next few years.  Please remember that internet on planes are just as secure as using internet at any other hotspot, and just because you pay for it, doesn’t mean you should be doing banking or anything else secure on it.  There is a possibility that other travelers will be able to see what you are surfing – and not just the person sitting next to you either.

Also, from a more technical side: please remember to remove any DNS settings you have set up on your laptop, otherwise the internet will never work.

Enjoy your flight,
