    3 '''WARNING: We are currently in testing/demo mode any created accounts at this point are for experimentation only and will probably be deleted'''
    4 The technology is similar to GoogleTalk and Facebook Chat. You will be able to communicate with people that are currently using google talk, however although Facebook chat uses the same technology they remain to use it in a closed garden preventing communication with other XMPP servers. You will also be able to communicate with Riseup.net users who have opted to use their built-in XMPP server.
     3We are proud to announce that we have chat and all member user accounts automatically are able to use the chat with the username and password you currently use for email and openID.

     48For instance in Pidgin the settings are found under
     49Tools --> Preferences --> Networking
     50Under stun server add the following
