    Real time chat is up, somewhat.

    I have put up a real time chat up, click on the link "IRC Chat" at the bottom of each page (above the webtrends button). If you like it, I'll register a copy, and integrate it better into the forums.

    Please don't integrate it too much - IRC software is on my work's site prohibited list and I'd rather not lose access to the whole site...

    I got the chat up - no one was there, and I then minimized it, and, poof, it went completely away. When I reclicked on IRC chat, nothing happened?? Could not find the minimized button for IRC???

    i assume the chat room isn't working yet because it's not been subscribed to yet?

    Joe, first let me say that I don't know squat about chat, IRC, etc.
    Second, where is the "IRC Chat" link? I don't see it at the bottom of any page and I don't see the webtrends button either.
    :confused: :confused:
    Thanks.

    Will, did you get the logging into server message? Once in chat, you should see the text * Willc enters, once you recive that, your in, and you should beable to chat.

    Buddy, do you recive an error message?

    Richard, understood, by integrating furter, i was thinking about putting a link on the main index page, with current users in chat (like current users online.)

    Denver, i dont know what to tell you, it should act just like any other window, i just tried to minimize it myself, and it worked fine.

    Cabledonut, it works (or it should work!), but after each message, it has a subscribe message..

    Ron, at the bottom of this page you should see the chat link, and a page counter button. It at the bottom of each page.

    Doesn't work for me. I installed the applet, but when I try connecting, it tells me that D*Alex has already been taken, then it proceeds to add a whole bunch of succesively larger numbers after my nickname. I try to change the name, but it keeps on trying the old one, with bigger and bigger numbers. I gave up when it hit 7 digits after my name.
    What a pain in the @r$e!!

    I can't get in either, but I suspect it's a firewall issue on the LAN here at work. I get an 'unable to connect to server' message. I haven't tried it at home yet.

    Any suggestions on how to get IRC to beat the firewall?
    If we learn from our mistakes, I must be a goddamn genius.

    Ahh, it looks like i'll need to find a different server, or network. Currently, it goes to EFnet. Some 30,000 people are online at any time, im sure there will be username conflicts. I'll work on that tonite.

    Allister, no clue, sorry!

    Oh, that's why. My server blocks most IRC connections. I can't remember which connection they DO allow, but I know that it's not effnet. Oh, well.

    I got it working, but is anyone there? Is there some way to signal to current online users that you want to chat, besides email?

    I had to take a rather roundabout way to get into chat. I'm on a Mac, and using IE I never got past the connecting message. I switched to Netscape and had the same result. I have a Windows emulator on this machine, so I went into it and then was able to get in through IE. After which was able to chat with ahuman, Joe, nebill, and Ba-Dg-Er. Then I got punted so hard it took five minutes to work my way back in.

    I have just changed server from efnet to a private server at mit.edu (irc-2.mit.edu). Theres only a handfull of users on this server, so we should have no username conflicts what so ever.

    I have the same problem as UncaStewart.On a mac with netscape I got a blank window when I tried to log in. With IE I wasn't able to get past the "connecting" message.It's a macuser's life!
