If you haven't already had an invitation, I can send you one. Best reply
off-list though. ;)

My sentiments exactly. This is kind of what drew me to OneSocialWeb,
actually - since it's based on XMPP and I already run ejabberd, I
thought the barrier to running my own server would be much lower.
Unfortunately, OSW only has an implementation based on the Java-powered
OpenFire XMPP server, and I don't currently use Java for anything else
on my server either (pretty shocking, considering I've been primarily
employed as a Java developer for most of the last 10 years!).

I've seen some comments about Diaspora-X, which seems to be Diaspora
hacked to use XMPP as a transport. Does anyone here know any more about it?
