My teams are awesome!

I just want to drop a few lines to say that my teams are awesome! I am so proud to be here in Workshare and manage these people! No, we are not super-brilliant-smart or whatever, we definitely not googlers and we have a long road to improve, but we will get there, eventually :) So far we are doing just right!

And yeah, you have to realize that if your team suck then, well, you probably suck as well. Of course I failed to realize this myself first in my early days as a manager.

Pidgin & OpenFire

Openfire (aka WildFire) a very well known jabber server won’t work with Pidgin, a famous IM client, because of a lack of support by Java in RFC 2831implementation, as you can also read here, here and here.

Before giving up digging inside Openfire awkward documentation and obscure groups suggestions just pick up you openfire.xml file in /opt/openfire/conf and add, just before closing </jive> elements, these few sentences:

<sasl>
<mechs>PLAIN</mechs>
</sasl>

They’ll do the job.
