Another good example of KDE/GNOME collaboration and interaction

KMess is a KDE MSN Messenger client that can be found on KMess now supports compatibility with invitations to use MS's NetMeeting. This works both ways, allowing NetMeeting to GnomeMeeting invitations, GnomeMeeting to NetMeeting invitations when you are using KMess and your contact is using MSN Messenger. It also supports GnomeMeeting to GnomeMeeting invitations when both you and your contacts are using KMess.

ILS server

The ILS server has been down several times in the last few days. The problem is that it has been very successful (130 users connected each night). We are trying to find a replacement to the current OpenLDAP + NDK implementation, but don't hesitate to mail me personally when you notice the server is down. Thanks!
