When you request a demo key, the process requires you to be registered member of the site and for you to enter your site URL.
It is important that you enter your site url or other wise the demo will not work, as babble will use your site's url as an identifier when it connects to the chat service.
Now i don't harvest the URL's or even keep them in a human readable format, I use a hashing algorithm. My goal is to keep as much identifying information off my servers as possible, in case o
This Monday 10/19/2020 I will be launching babble 3.0.0 chat service.
2.9 chat service will continue to operate for 30 days after wards, and then i will be shutting it down and you will need to upgrade to babble 3.0.0.
I will also be launching a 30 day "get demo" for babble, that will allow you to get a 30 day key to test babble 3.0.0 if you haven't already gotten it.
I'll be releasing Babble 3.0.0 preview this week, ONLY UPGRADE if you are wanting to test it out. this will be a post beta release, but it might still have bugs in it.
You will also need to have IPS 4.5 installed, as 3.0.0 has been designed around to work best with it. It might work with 4.4, but there is no guarantee that it will.
I will be releasing the self hosted preview tomorrow, but the chat service version will come a few days later.
Once i move from preview to the releas

Free as in beer, is getting something without payment. That is all it really means, you could try to find a deeper meaning in it, but you would be hard pressed to find one. This is what it means in the FOSS world too, if some one says 'Try Ubunt

I had a chance to use my talents to help a few local schools out with their IT dilemma (mostly fixing their old and donated computers to hand out to children who don't have one). So i was busy with this for a bit, and then i got sick (not with covid19, at least they told me it wasn't it, but it kicked my butt for about 5 days), but i am back now. I have a few things to get thru for a few clients, and then i will start working my wa
since i have some free time for the next several weeks, i thought i'd jump on in on babble 2.9/3.0 (more than likely be 3.0 finally).
but here is a quick video on the new look for babble. if you have followed the babble saga for the awhile, you will know i've never been quite happy with the layout of babble. it was archaic imho, mostly due to the original spec that babble was written under. i experimented with a "slack" like layout, but i wasn't too happy with that one either, that is why t
