CustomizeTalk.com Takeover

I have happy news to share. I am going to be the new owner of customizetalk.com. 🙂

CustomizeTalk.com is a community site for Google Talk users, with loads of tips and tweaks, news about Google Talk and also information about Google Talk Addon development.

Recently there is been some slight decrease in the activity at the site, due to the fact that Google has slowed down its Google Talk development and has started concentrating more on the browser based chat client embed inside Gmail.

My first step as the new moderator is to increase the activity in the site (after removing spam posts ;))  and I am looking for suggestions. So guys do have a look at CustomizeTalk.com and let me know what can be improved.

I am planning to cover other Google Talk related topics like browser based chat client inside Gmail, XMPP, Jabber etc. Also let me know if you feel that other topics could be added.

Looking forward in meeting you guys over at customizeTalk. 🙂

Google Talk released

I opened my aggregator (Bloglines) today and found out from Mark Jen that Google is going to release their IM Google Talk today.

I am one of those who have been waiting for this day. I went to the Google Talk site and downloaded it and installed it. The interface looks very thin and sleek and it supports both text and voice. (But yet to test it as none of friends have downloaded it yet)

And when I was looking around the interface I clicked the about box and it had the usual copy right notice and below that I found this text Play 23 21 13 16 21 19 . 7 1 12 5 and I was breaking my head to find out what they mean by it. Then only I found that I was the only one do so.

Asa has a nice guess for this and gives an explanation in his blog. If any one else has a better guess do leave a comment and also let me know about your experience with Google Talk.
