It's the new thing!

Hardly new. The porno sites have had chat rooms for years. :w

It's crazy in there. :ph34r:

it's big fun, but how does it all work? Can you set up rooms yourself so you can go into seclusion and discuss stuff seriously and without all the fowl?

Yes you can. I'm not sure how you invite people once the room is setup, however. The name of the software is ParaChat and I'm sure they have a manual on their website.

Downloaded/installed (probably redundantly) all the Java stuff, rebooted/etc. and get:

Exception: javs.lang.NullPointerException

followed by

Laoding Java Applet Failed

Any ideas?

Maybe it's your browser? I'm using Firefox and it works.

I tried to install the stuff from Sun Microsystems as well (Microsoft is no longer offering the software, despite the link on the "Live Chat" page). The installation crashed, but then the chat function appears to be working nevertheless.

I just enetered the chat room, and - guess what - noone else there! :)

I think all that energy expended in the chat room could be directed in more posts to the forum.

But that's just me. Couw? Brownie? Chuck? :blink:

Ping ping ping...

Thay type of 'energy' (ritalin, anyone?) is best left to dissipate in that type of live chat environment.

~~~~~~~~~~

Here's an idea: If anyone's misbehaving, they're temporarily banned from the board and are sequestered in their very own live chat room. Good place to take a time out.

I chatted for a while this afternoon on my Mac running Safari. Seemed to work fine. Takes several seconds for the java thing to work itself out and start running, then it was fine.

Huh, weird...

I just get a blank box. It works fine from work ( :crazy: ) just fine.

ChrisA mentioned updating Java, but I'm not sure how to do that.

Help!

Earlier there was a window for the chatroom down by the users list between birthdays & board staitics, listing who was in there. Now it's disappeared from the forums. How dio I get that feature back?

As best I can tell, if nobody is in the Chat area, that listing at the bottom goes away.

Hmmm .. I went in the chatroom, minimized the window and went to the forums to see if the chatroom was there and it wasn't even though I was in there ..

If you were in there, how could you have been out here? cuz over there you are not here, nor here there... :crazy:

did you refresh, while you weren't here?

Maybe we should open a separate Existentialist chat room. Problem is, once you went in, there'd be no exit.
