Google Talk from Trillian

Well I found Google Talk to be... less than interesting... It was very annoying that when I installed it and went to add people to my non-existant buddy list, that it sent them all an unsolicited email telling them to sign up. I was just adding gmail users... but oh well. So nobody I know really logs into Google Talk. So rather than running another client, I found out that since its based on Jabber, I can add GTalk to my Trillian client. I found the following instructions on the net.

I now have it running under Trillian 3.1 Pro Build 121.. easy as pie to add.

* If you don't already have it, download the Jabber plug-in from Cerulean Studio's site.
* Go to 'Preferences'.
* Click 'Plugins'.
* Activate the Jabber plug-in.
* Click 'Identities & Connections'.
* 'Add a new connection' ... 'JABBER'
* Enter your gmail address in the JID field (i.e. 'wickity@gmail.com')
* Enter your gmail password.
* Select auto connect, if you're so inclined.
* Click 'Change'
* Set server host to 'talk.google.com'
* Click 'Save Settings'
* Click 'Connect'
* 'Close' preferences

Vacation to New Mexico

UPDATE These stops have been cancelled. Hoping to goto Atomic Museum at the bottom


This coming labor day I will not be going to Burning Man, but rather travelling to Albuequerque and on the way there will be stoping at the following places.




Montezuma's Castle

No map... just these instructions... Montezuma Castle is located 3 miles off Interstate 17. Use Exit Number 289 and follow signs.



Do both PIMA AMARC and Titan for $14.25 a person.

The PIMA AMARC is the location where the tour of the B-52 Airplane Graveyard leaves from. This reminds me I used Microsofts TerraServer to create a LARGE image of the Airplane Graveyard, this will take a while to load. Just wait.
