A little background about ChilliSpot

As of mid 2007, ChilliSpot appears to be dead. The developer Jens Jacobsen had vanished, and the chillispot.org domain lapsed, but chillispot.info is a copy (with ads inserted) of the original site. You can download the rpm version of ChilliSpot directly from this website.
