Apartment internet is out

So partychat is down too. Will bring it back up when connectivity is restored.

Update: This appears to actually be an issue with Google connectivity (PartyChat uses Google Talk as its Jabber host)

Update: Aaaaaand we're back!

  1. I see. I'm waiting.
    Ping to google results in 50% packet loss in Japan. and other services, like Docs, Reader, are in the same situation.

  3. I am the "administrator" of a chat room on your great service. We would like to make all participants to a exit, wipe the group name, then recreate the group and all rejoin. Somehow, our chat room became corrupted (name changed, can't chat, etc.) Thanks

  6. Hi Akshay - corrupted to me means that just prior to party chat going down last week, our regular password-protected group became know as 'banana' and had a number of users in it that we had never heard of. Certain authorized active users were no longer able to see of /join the original chat group name or if they did join, no one was around (all in #banana instead). So we all /exit-ed and tried to start a new groupHope this helps.

  7. Chris - were you successful in creating a new room? That's a very bizarre error case I've never heard of, but could be explained by corruption of the underlying state file.

  8. The original chat room name was in partychat@partych.at, which became unresponsive - no commands would work (/create, /list, /join etc. did nothing). Thinking you now required a #, I tried partychat9@partych.at instead and successfully re-created chat room with password protection. Oddly, we could get in without supplying the password and users from the *original* chat room /list-ed. Further our previous aliases where still in use from the old, so we couldn't use those. The next day, the Party Chat system went down.
