Thanks for the suggestions.

I think this is a great idea.  And these days a lot of IM tools also  
support jabber.  I know, however, that some companies are stict about  
what they let people do on comapny laptops and from with the VPN.   
Does everyone support Jabber?

Also does ICANN have its own jabber server or are they using an  
external one?
