    Yes! We're getting ready to watch a movie, but it should be over by 9:30/10:00.

    I saw lots of talk about AIM chat, and IRC. If anyone is interested, I can setup a web based chat on a server that can be up 24/7 and whoever can make it, can just stop by and chat. I run a number of web servers with some friends of mine, mostly Linux servers, as we're all opensource developers. If there's interest, I can have a web based chat (no extra software required on anyone's part) up and ready in about 1 day's notice.

    Takers? Questions?

    Ok, it's up. I'm still going to change the look and feel to match my other main site at GatewayGamer.net; but, on the login page you'll need to click on "register" first. It's just a simple form which asks for a nickname to use in the chat (hint: use the one you use on these forums so ppl can find you). Then, back on the login page, you can select "STLFanForce" from the "Default Rooms" drop down list and just click "chat" at the bottom of the login page.

    Now you can come and go as you please and chat in near real-time. I'll try to be in there during the day (albeit I'm also at work so I might be AFK for a while) but, never-the-less, we all now have a 24/7 chat room in which to organize discussions or just hang out.

    See ya there. Post any questions you might have on this thread or just catch me in the chat! Thanks.

    Sorry. http://chat.gatewaygamer.net.

    I forgot to elaborate the URL in my haste in getting it up and running.

    Well I can't figure out how to get in the chat system, keeps bringing me back to the default screen. Question, why are chat logs kept for 96 hours? Some of the discussions we've been known to have I don't know if I'd want those kept (you know the Ewan gushing days....).

    I saw you login Daj and tried to talk with you. What exactly is your browser doing?

    It did nothing. Just brought up a little side window if I clicked on users in the room but no chat window.

    On the login page, you selected "STLFanForce" from the default rooms drop down box. Then, click on the button at the bottom where it says, "Then, just [chat] ...".

    I think what you did was click on the line at the top that said, "There are currently 1 users in the chat". This will pop up a smaller window showing users in the chat room. Click on the chat button at the bottom to enter the chat. You will have the main chat area where text shows up, a text entry area at the bottom and a list of users and rooms on the right.

    I'm in there now, so try it again and I'll try type some text you can see.

    I did click on that, everytime. Still brings me to the default screen with the "There are currently two users in this chat" with no chat screen. It's no biggie though.

    If you are seeing the "There are X users..." then at the bottom of that screen click on the button that says, "Chat". I see you in the room! What browser are you using, IE/Windows XP?

    I clicked that, seriously, a bunch of times. Yeah I'm on XP and AOL which is IE based. Seriously though no big deal, I don't mind yahoo chat at all.
