I know, things have been rather quiet, but I have a couple of tidbits
(1) First and foremost is the release of EBME TR2 (Testing Release 2),
an update to the mobile messenger that contains a few significant
bugfixes. For those who haven't heard of it, EBME is our mobile
messenger. It allows you to view who's online, and send and receive
instant messages from your mobile phone. It works with most phones now
on the market, and it's rapidly become indispensible for me!
To use it, you'll need a publically accessible Everybuddy core, and
you'll need to be able to run ebqt to set everything up (EBME won't do
that). I can run a core for you, if you want, but you will still need
ebqt - talk to me. Anyway, once you have those two, point your mobile
phone at http://www.everybuddy.com/eb-lite/files/ebme.jad, download,
enter your core details, and go!
If you already use EBME, you can use your phone's Update feature to
upgrade without losing any of your settings. Just highlight the
Everybuddy application, open the menu, and select Update to download
the new version.
(2) Calling all artists! If you follow my instructions above and
download EBME, you'll rapidly discover that the icons are somewhat
wacky. This is because I have no artistic skill, and so had to steal
them from elsewhere. If someone wouldn't mind creating a few 8x8 PNG
icons for me, I'd be much obliged.
(3) On a more minor point, there are a few bugfixes now in the trunk and
bleeding trees, which it might be worth checking out. "svn up", or use
