Wednesday Chat

Postby James Roscoe » Wed Aug 28, 2013 1:31 pm

Chat tonight! For those of you who may have forgotten, chat gets started around 9:30 PM for those of us on the east coast, 8:30 PM for those of you in Chicago and 7:30 in other parts of fly over country such as Denver. I guess that means 6:30 PM on the left coast. If my calculations are correct everyone in NZ needs to join us at 1:30 PM Thursday and Australia at 11:30 AM on Thursday for those in Sydney and eastern Oz. It will be an ungodly 3:30 AM in Israel and Helsinki, 2:30 AM in Paris, and Berlin, and 1:30 AM in London. Of course it is all worth the sleep deprivation. Come in early and see who is here. Don't be late!!!!! (I hope I have the time changes down.If not, let me know!)

And a note from our fearless leader:
James referred me to this thread, and basically, as I told him, it seems that our current chat solution has gotten buggy and probably behind the times. Lots of people having problems with it.

There's no need to take up a collection ... I'm happy to pay for the chat room rent from the proceeds of forum adverts (including the dreaded Meebo), but I'm going to invite you folks to form a task force and get on Google in search of an affordable chat solution that's in the same price range of $10/mo or less. You find one that suits you all, I'll get it installed and paid for. I do think it's probably time to jump ship from Parachat, though.


The fun starts HERE!!!!!

I don't have any problem with ParaChat using Google Chrome and IE10, and although my browser tells me running the Java application may pose a security risk I allow the app to run and it works fine. But I'm working on a project now and when I finish the project about the end of September, the clocks change to summer time and the timing will be all askew for me. So, as I won't be on chat again for a while, I'll let you regulars sort out a solution and hopefully it will work for everyone.

Anyone coming in? It is getting dull in here by myself.

I'm sure it is. Unfortunately, I am still getting the error message that it is not "communicating with the server". I think it might be a problem with my settings, but who knows?

Was looking forward to seeing you all..

No one came to chat. Can someone look into the solutions Robin suggested?

No chat reminder? I can actually access it now! I discovered I had viscous virus called "conduit" which overthrows the browsers then takes over the internet world in which you live. All fixed now, and I live to chat another day!

See you there..
