I don't understand why the IRC channel was abandoned in favor of this.

It was not abandoned; it was never populated. And AltME has been running for almost as long; five years or so. Anyway, if you want to see activity on IRC, then make some! Smile And how can you compare AltME and IRC when you've never been on AltME?

Thing is, from everything I've read about it, I just can't find any benefit over IRC. I want to keep up on developer chatter, but I'm not running a random proprietary program just to idle in one channel. Does someone closely involved with Syllable project develop for that software or something? Just trying to understand..

[quote="i3x171um"]Thing is, from everything I've read about it, I just can't find any benefit over IRC.[/quote]

The fact that AltME is persistent and IRC is not is one obvious difference I.e. if I log off of AltME and come back later I'll still get all the messages that were sent while I was logged off.

AltME isn't a chat client, it's a groupware client. You can store files, manage lists of tasks and share calendars as well, which is why we use it.

Yes, the downside is that we have to run a closed, proprietary client to access the worlds, but it's light enough that it can run well under a lightweight Linux under Qemu. I think ReactOS works too.

The long-term plan is to get REBOL running on Syllable, complete with REBOL/View, and then the client will run native. The very-long-term plan have our own groupware client .

The official AltMe client seems to be distributed as an executable prepared by REBOL/Encap. Is there a way to extract the actual REBOL program from an Encap executable for use with the standard REBOL interpreter? If not, is there another method we'll be able t use to get AltMe running in the Syllable build of REBOL (once there is a Syllable build of REBOL of course)? Or is the plan to add support for opening Encap executables in Orca?

No, it's a closed app.

The plan is to port REBOL 3 to Syllable Desktop and then wait for the new R3 version of AltME.

Well, you're already in there. Did you loose your password? Do you still have the same email address? I can send you a new password, then.
