jabber.el, OTR and notifications #emacs
A while back I switched from using Pidgin for XMPP to jabber.el, I think primarily because OTR didn't work reliably for me in Pidgin.
Or there was some other reason that I forgot.
Anyway, running jabber.el in a decidated Emacs-instance works really well, and I can - with some perspiration - fix small niggles myself.
The latest one was related to OTR: notifications would show the encrypted text, and they would display when I wrote something myself. Not ideal. The author gave some hints, and I finally hacked together a solution - it isn't pretty or the right way, but it works for now.
To avoid spam many websites make you fill out a CAPTCHA, or log in via an account at a corporation such as Twitter, Facebook, Google or even Microsoft GitHub.
I have chosen to use a more old school method of spam prevention.
