The web based IM service MeeboÂ is re-enabled it’s jabber chat conference room support.
Jabber conference rooms are what is used in The Central Alabama IM Spotter Chat.
You have to know the server name to join a room then theÂ IM acct you are logged in as will handle authentication to the conference.
I heardÂ about these from the WeatherBrains podcast.
“At Nielsen-Kellerman, weather is serious business! NK engineers are determined to make the most accurate and reliable hand-held weather devices available. You might find a weather meter that is a little less expensive, but you won’t find one that works better.”
I got the following email from Brett Adair who is one of our spotters in the chat room he did a chase for the recent storms i though you would like to see.

4/11/2008 was a big day for the Alabama Storm Trackers especially on an exposure level.Â We just wanted to direct everyone to our blog and show some of the coverage that we were able to capture on our live stream.Â We are basically taking this opportunity to thank all of our sponsors who have supported us.Â This post will also be featured on the 33/40 blog page.Â With the help of GRLevelX, Allisonhouse products, SevereStreaming.com, Autonet Mobile, Cyfre and Maximum Signal we were able to intercept and relay video of this dangerous weather in a timely fashion.Â Our coverage was watched by the National Weather Service as well during this event.Â The spotternetwork also proved to play a key role in one of our critical storm reports as it always does.Â Thanks again everyone!
