I am plain fed up of Google Talk refusing to allow any third-party clients to connect after about 18:00 BST. I have no idea whether anyone else has this issue, but I certainly do and it’s starting to really annoy me. It seems to happen almost every day at the moment.
I’ve tried connecting with Kopete, Pidgin, Adium and iChat, but still, nothing works. Regardless of OS or machine, I can’t get a single third party client to connect.
I want to use GTalk as my primary IM as it’s nice and compatible with Jabber as an open standard and all that, but at this rate, I’m thinking about just getting myself a standard Jabber account. All I have right now is the damn Gmail chat interface.
