As you may have noticed, the partychat#@gmail accounts are down right now. Due to a series of SNAFUs, I can't restart them till Monday morning. In the meantime, we have a temporary PartyChat instance running at firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll have to recreate/rejoin your chat rooms (/make room-name & /join room-name), but hopefully that'll tide you over until I can restart the regular system on Monday.
Sorry about that =/. I feel even worse than the twitter kitty.
P.S. A big thanks to Michael for temp hosting in the meantime!
