    Hi Folks... this ought to do for now... note that usernames are *not* integrated -- chat at your own risk!

    Type "/nick " to establish your username. e.g.:

    /nick superfoot

    Chat Now!

    :talker:

    First Wednesdays of the month again? 9pm ET?

    I tried to type "/nick Squidman," but I found that just "Squidman" works fine.


    Am I not doing something right?

    no, that's good -- i'm just saying that it doesn't happen automatically, which is what I'd prefer to offer -- i.e., access to chat should be based on your TONMO.com login credentials. Some day soon!

    Note that if you don't type /nick username, you can still chat, but your identity will be "unknown".

    Well, I sat there yelling for quite some time ... alas, nobody yelled back; I was stuck in some channel all by my lonesome (first time I've been able to chat in years, and nobody was there)

    Well, I managed to talk to TONMO for a few minutes, so it does work with 2 people... I had some weirdness where I left "ghost logins" when I just closed the window instead of using the logout button or "quit," but when I quit my browser (and the associated java_vm) it closed those connections. Tony says his doesn't do this, so it may be something about my OS or some such (debian pure64/amd64 linux + firefox + blackdown/sun java j2re1.4.2). Shrug.

    Are you gearing up for TONMOcon Tony??? So that all the people who can't make it can have a chat/Q&A session with speakers?? Maybe we can bring a laptop to the bar and have chatroom toasts!
    :cheers: :beer: :wine: :glass:
    I love it.

    I think it's still a 12 hour difference, although we just put our clocks an hour ahead. So 9 pm in New York is probably 9 am the next morning in Hong Kong.

    When I need to know for sure, I look at the World Clock website.

    I get a blank grey screen for about 20 seconds (although the status bar says 'Applet initialized' if you mouse over), then a black screen that says in red: Connection to [...] failed! MELANGE debug: java.net.NoRouteToHostException: Operation Timed Out

    ... and that's it. :hmm:
