    Chat

    Greetings fellas

    I have been using the Yaplet chat software for Mozilla Firefox hoping that I could chat with some folding "aficionados" from this forum. Unfortunately most of the times I am alone in the chat room. I know that bikeforums has a non official IIRC chat room, but I have never been there. The Yaplet sofware is very simple and have some advantages over the IIRC, so I challenge you to show up once in a while. Usually I enter the room at 4:00 - 5:00 GMT and/or 16:00 - 18:00 GMT.

    See you there

    Why not just have a chitchat thread in the Folding forum?

    First of all because I think a forum is a place where we discuss ideas in condensed writing and as direct to the point as possible. Second the moderators would not be happy with unnecessary comments that use lots of database.

    The suggestion of a chatroom at fixed times means some of us had to ge up in 6he middle of the night- or be excluded.

    Undoubtedly that is the case. I simply posted the most common hours I will be around in the Forums. The Forums are international and I expect that members only will be a able to access a chat according to their time zones and personal schedules. Sooner or later I believe we will meet in some sort of chat room.

    Perhaps I am a bit old fashioned as in all technical matters. I seem to prefer post, e-mail, or private mail regularly rather than more instantaneous Skype, IM, Chat and the like and let others view it whenever they are ready to do so. I like the idea of archiving material and topics as when someone else has the same or similar need to know it in the future......they can find it quickly and effortlessly.

    Can you imagine, you just called e-mail "old fashioned"? Time is mowing fast
