      The more people come in the better the experience will be! :thumb

      It gets pretty busy in there around US work hours ... some 20 people or so. We have way more people in TCL than that ... lets get more people in.

      How the heck are you folks getting away running IRC at work? Any smart system admin would flag that as suspicious activity... if it isn't already blocked by a firewall.

      it's too old for most sysadmins to care. Plus the Web client probably goes under the radar.
      Plus, it's such a low bandwidth item anyway... also most of the guys in the chat are SysAdmins

    24. 05-18-2010 05:26 PM #129
      Not a sys admin here, but the web client is so small that my IT guys don't care. If they did catch me, i'd show them what it is & they'd laugh( my IT director drives an R32 he'd prob ask for the link.

      InfiniteEcho has agreed to set up a new server for us, which he's doing now. So I'll be updating the links at the top and letting everyone know when the changeover occurs.

      so, it works fine for most people.
      make sure your Java is up to date
      We've tried it on IE6 and IE8 successfully.
      I think Vad is the only person having a problem
      if you're having a problem, PM me here

      the problem Vad reported was that he logged in, saw the chat and it immediately went black

      Also, if anyone wants another way to get on the chat
      I use
      http://xchat.org/

      It's free and easy to use.

      If you use Trillian or Trillian Astra, there's an IRC server function on that
      there's the CBIRC web client I posted in the first post. Which I like more than Mibbit, personally
      http://www.bratschi.net/cbirc/

      we're looking into an ad-free solution to replace the MIBBIT client

      If you'd like to look at chat options:

      Ok, we ironed it all out.
      People seem to like this version:

      also, now that everything seems to be working, if anyone wants a chatroom for their club or area, let me know and I can set it up for you.
