Sigh... I hate it when I forget to Reply To All.
Could we get this Mailman installation configured so that we don't
have to, and that Reply follows up to the list proper?

Michael: Sorry for the dupe.
Rest of you: Reply follows;

I've had this message queued for the whole weekend and then some.
It's been a crazy one, I tell you that.

In installs of Psi, there is a button under the menu bar that is a
"Show Self Contact" button.
It adds an entry (purely in the client, nothing changes in the server
so far as I'm aware) listing you under that particular account, above
your actual entire roster [1].

I always enable that.  Usually, I can send a message to myself by
right-clicking this "self contact", and choosing my Home resource from
the "Send Message To..." menu.
I can't do this with djabberd/LJ Talk because the other resource isn't
listed [2].
For comparison purposes, to see how my GTalk instance works, see [3].

Then, I simple use the right-click menu to send a message to myself.
djabberd/LJTalk again has only the one resource [4], while GTalk has both [5].

Ad-Hoc commands client to client. Psi had a screencast of it a long
time ago, I can't seem to locate it any more, however.

One can run disco#info without a problem. I would imagine that the
problem is that the server doesn't allow presence to<->from oneself,
or something like that that.

Brad? Martin? Bueller...? Bueller...? Bueller...?
