My oldest public #XMPP server (jabberzac.org) is 10 years old today. It's kind of a sad anniversary because the channel it was created to host has been dead for a couple of years now and I miss it so much.
There are still quite a few active users on that domain, but not any kind of community. It's really just an alternate hostname for chinwag.im now.
RIP. Forward any spare emojis to xmpp:email@example.com?join
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
