Well, for those of you who don‘t like IRC or just want a direct link to chatroom without the hassle, there is now a new chat applet that‘ll take you to the irc chatroom.

  http://army.ca/php/chat.php  

Just type in your username and click on connect and you should be there.

Hope to see more of you in the chatroom.   :)

If you guys just come in and leave after seeing few guys there, how are people suppose to generate a discussion?

So, if you have time, stick around the chat. Perhaps more people will show up.  :)

What about starting the chat room function again?

Might lead to some interesting debates. The user activity really seems to be up as of late.

Hey Ghost..

I tried loading up the chat function in IE, and it didn‘t work... but I tried it with Firefox (Mozilla), and it loaded fine...  no one there but me...  but it seemed to be working, just not with Internet Explorer.

IE needs some sort of odd java client and I‘ve given up on trying to get it to load up on Explorer.

Use Netscape or some other browser to log on to the chat server using the java applet here.

Yeah mIRC is a good program but it takes time to learn. Mike, why did you make an IRC channel anyway I've been joined for an hour and the only other person in it is "EvilTree".

P.S. Make this a sticky!

Was thinking that maybe a 'Chat Room' Button should be put somewhere more visable.
Perhaps next to the 'Profile' button etc?

Only way to get to chat room is to go through this thread, so if the button was put somewhere easy to get at, the chat room may see more activity.

Actually the Chat Room is also available under "Information" in the menus at the top of the page.

If you have your puter on all the time you can sit in there and at least you will see who comes to visit.  I think an Op should sit in there (not to mean they sit there and stare at their bloody computer all the time), but at least it shows newbies that there actually are people that go to the channel, even if they aren't talking :)

Never noticed that...but moving my mouse up to "Information" and then down to "Chatroom" just plain old smacks of effort. ;)

Honestly, I think that having a very visable button would increase activity...but don't know how much work it would entail to add a new button. Anyway, if it is not hard to do, consider giving it a try.

Yes the chat was a bit "dead" when I got there, but I will go back later and check it again.

Cheers!! :cdn:

EvilTree is actually me. I may be around, but people usually just buggers off before I could respond. :)
