Introducing DotNet Instant Messenger

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Friends of all ages:

I am proud to present to you DotNet Instant Messenger.  I have built for the open source community a new Instant Messaging client that works fully out of the browser.  The client is built with ASP.NET, C#, JavaScript and LINQ.

Why build a new instant messaging client?  Well, I decided that the current instant massangers were all proprietary or built in another language.  I wanted one strictly for ASP.NET.  The project in all took about 2 weeks of good old fashioned programming.  I had to learn a bit of JavaScript and Web services to get this job done, but it was fun.  I took the images from Ajax IM, I am not going to lie about that.  All the code is completely mine and built with my two hands.  I used Ajax IM’s database and enhanced it a little bit.

Instructions for Use:
  1. You must have the default ASP.NET membership schema already set up.
  2. You will need to run IMQuery.sql on the database.
  3. You must allow pop-ups for the Client to work – This is required so when a user starts a chat, the new window will open for the user on the receiving end.
  4. Note: IM’s could take up to one minute.  When the buddy list and the chat box isn’t open, there are minute intervals on the browser which means it only checks for new messages once a minute.  When you have the Buddy List open, the interval is cut down to 5 seconds.

I have made this for the community and expect the community to hopefully give me some feedback.  I am fully into making this thing fully functional client if the community sees it as a good messenger. 

The project is available on Codeplex and at www.DotNetIM.com.  The Demo is located at www.DotNetIM.com. Go check it out and please leave me some feedback.

Well, I did tell you that I copied ajaxim's info.  Why not?  Just making a port for what ajaxim didn't complete.
