To be able to run aIRChat, you need to have installed Node.js.

The value of
exports.host should be the address of the machine running the server.
If you are running the aIRChat server on your personal computer for your exclusive use,
you can leave this value alone.
The value of
exports.sessionTimeout should be the number of milliseconds you want
to allow user sessions to be maintained for. The larger this value, the longer
messages and chat clients will be maintained for you and your users.
