OK, this is my last message to both lists :)
The last couple days have really clarified how effective IRC is for
communicating problems, and iteratively working through to a solution.
Email is far slower and harder to keep in sync.

I would strongly suggest that developers and users in the MapGuide and
FDO communities make use of the IRC channels that we have set up for
this kind of real-time communication.

So, if your corporate firewall allows, please join us on:

FDO:  irc://irc.freenode.net/fdo

MapGuide:  irc://irc.freenode.net/mapguide

Some easy-to-use IRC clients include

 - HydraIRC - Windows-only application

 - Colloquy - Mac IRC client

 - X-Chat Aqua - Mac IRC client (keyboard-friendly)

 - Chatzilla - Cross-platform plugin for FireFox - 

 - X-Chat - Windows / Linux client

There are some useful hints on the Freenode site, including how to
register a username so that you have a fixed identity:
