Secure IM for internal communication

During this summer we finally got some time to review our internal working processes. One thing clearly missing was a solid IM solution for quick communication when working remotely. After trying out several different approaches we decided to use the old and well-proven one: IRC.

Very important feature we were looking for was secure communication. Domen mentioned something about FISH, a blowfish implementation for IRC chats. One google search away we had exactly what we needed.

Kubuntu users get Konversation installed on their system by default and Konversation has built-in support for FISH. Nice.
Those of us using Colloquy on OS X, however, needed to install a plugin – FISHy. Download, copy to Plugins folder and we were set. Simple and effective.

I like it when things just work.

Click2Sell integration for Plone

After integrating Clickbank with Plone last month we decided we also need integration with Click2Sell affiliate marketing network. A new Plone add-on was born: niteoweb.click2sell.

The add-on has the same feature-set as it’s sister add-on niteoweb.clickbank, enabling you to have paid membership on your Plone site. It’s very simple to install and use.
