Site Updates

Just wanted to post a quick blurb to point out that I've updated various pages around the site including the email and chat setup pages.

Please let me know if I've missed stuff or if there are any heinous errors.

Moving to Google Apps

I'm in the process of moving email and chat for thenibble.org over to Google Apps. Google will provide the full reliability of their service along with ease of use and maintenance for a personalized domain for free (up to 50 users).

So all mail will be available via mail.thenibble.org and from here you can setup stuff like mail forwarding or IMAP access etc. Currently, your old mail won't be in the new system, but I intend to do a mass migration of existing mail once the new setup has stabalized a little (within the next week or so).

The other part is chat. Users shouldn't need to change much as I've got "jabber.thenibble.org" pointing to the new server, but these are Google's instructions:

http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=49147

But as I mentioned, "jabber.thenibble.org" points to the right place so where you provide the Jabber server on the advanced tab, you can use either talk.google or jabber.thenibble.

We're still shaking everything out like group chat and that kind of stuff, so I guess it will be a bit of a work-in-progress.
