As we speak, Facebook is developing their own chat application, which may or may not allow
communication over the Jabber/XMPP Protocol (we all hope it will though).

I, however,
like several other nerds that probably exist out there, am trying to get a look at it first.  And,
I've gotten very close to succeeding, but I'm very far away.  From the video, I discovered that the
employee was using http://www.dev.facebook.com/
which is a special domain name, resolving to 10.1.100.106, and Internal IP
address.  Upon setting the IP to that of Facebook in my HOSTS file, I can manage to very slowly
pull up a web page.

Anyone else have any further luck getting to the Development version
of Facebook?
