I hope I'm allowed to promote a free application I've written here - if not, feel free to delete it mods Recently I've been developing an application which was originally intended for myself to be able to keep in contact, while at work, with friends who were using facebook chat. I wanted something I could use to see online friends, and quickly say something if I needed to - but without the distraction of facebook, and without the need to have a web browser open (doesn't look too good if the boss walks past and sees that). The application has matured a bit and grown into something I've now given to quite a few friends who all use it on a day-to-day basis - so I've now launched a website for it too, and decided to make it openly available to anyone. Most have found it most useful for its quick-hide feature, which is a "panic button" for when you're mid-sentence with a friend and the boss walks past. If anyone is interested, the website is http://www.faceoffim.com/ Update 18th August 2009: The website is now back up after downtime. Big thanks to KatatonicKwan here on the forum! Also, I'm moving on the weekend and will have my PC fully back online and will be able to release an update which will allow credentials to be supplied with proxy settings, as requested by many. Update 16th June 2009: New version released today (v1.0), the client works again after facebook's "username" implementation over the weekend, plus proxy support which I had many many requests for. See changelog for full list of changes.
