Please change the name of this board to GENERAL from CHAT.

LOL. Sorry :P I will do that .. I wanted to see if PHPBB supports some form of a chat mod anyway but haven't had the time to look around yet ...  Or maybe we can use some form of a chat adjunct as long as it doesn't increase the bandwidth for Jen and cause her problems ...

Sorry I guess that should have been IRC CHAT -or- some form of direct real-time CHAT. :oops:

For real time chat,  the yahoo group for Fahim's software has that enabled, Fahim can simply schedule a time to have a chat session.

I think Duane is thinking of a more permanent solution - an always on chat solution so that people using my software can just drop in and talk to whoever is online at the moment instead of me having to schedule a chat ... Something along the lines of IRC chatrooms which are always open and people just drop in :-)

http://www.chatfiles.com has a java chat service which is free and hosted on their site. It can be set up to be in a pop up window or not...it's pretty OK but you can only have 10 users on at a time and it doesn't let you set up user accounts. I'm sure there is something similar out there that would possibly have the features that this one doesn't...I'll search for some and test them out and let you know what I find.

Fahim, you obviously may want to set one up yourself and change it to suit your tastes if you decide to go in this direction.
