In Reply to: Can we arrange a time for an on-line chat?? posted by Mola Ram on October 19, 1998 at 07:56:38:
: I would love to chat on-line with some of you....especially
: regulars of old like Michaelson and Walker....
: so how about we arrange some web-chat site
: and try and meet there some time this week?
: I live in the UK...so time-difference might be a problem..I know
: but can we at least give it a try?
: If all goes well then perhaps we can try and make it a weekly thing.
: The time difference for the UK is that we are 8 hours ahead of the US....so if I say 7:00 or 8:00 pm english time....means that most of you would have to try and be there for 11:00 or 12:00 midday.
: I know it would be easier for most of you to do it in the evening...so that means...sob! sob!.....I won't be able to join you...but maybe some kind person could tell me what went on....
: Anyway....I suggest Maybe this week or preferably next week.
: At an agreed time and agreed chat-site...in an agreed room.
: The easiest one I know is Hotel Chat...at www.hotelchat.com
: Better still actually...how about the Lethal Weapon chat site...
: at www.LW4.com......NO ONE'S EVER THERE!!! Pefect!!...(although I wish there was) *doo doo doo dooooo!! Doo doo doo doooo!*
: "We're back, we're bad..." etc.
: Anyway....I always seem to be the one who comes up with hair-brained schemes!! Remember the forum novel??? Looks like I spawned all those arguments huh? hehehehe!!
: So..here's hopin' there lies an interest!!! I'm sure it couldn't be too much trouble!!
I think the chat idea is great.
The chat should definately support IRC. When there are lots of people chatting mIRC is the best program. You can download it from www.tucows.com
I can get a program that can be accessed from a website and with an IRC program. It's very cool. I don't have a permission to use it yet... It belongs to a major gaming site, but I know one of the owners pretty well... the chat program is worth about $300 so I don't want to use it without a permission.
I've setup a test at http://www.indy-world.com/books/chat1.htm
Check it out and tell me what you think. It can be accessed via IRC too. irc.gamesnet.net
We could have scheduled events... the chat could be accessed from various Indy sites... I could set it up on my server and it could be also accessed from Indyfan.com if Michaelson likes the idea.
