Hi Chris,

I use identi.ca, and I use the web interface to follow people, or join
groups, or change configurations, or to read an identi.ca conversation
between people, or even to read my own log.

But most of the time, I just have my Jabber client setup to communicate
with the identi.ca bot.  When I login to Jabber, the pending messages of
the day flow in all at once.  To dent, I just type a message at the bot,
and it responds with what it thinks I typed.

I also have it setup to email me notifications, so I get an email if
someone sends me a message directly (@cdfrey) or if someone follows me,
or similar things.  It doesn't send all the messages I'd usually get
through Jabber, though... just the direct ones.

Works for me so far.

- Chris
