Is there any way to create a chat room for this group?

They call it Tractor Tales, just a few discussion boards above this one in Yesterday's Tractors.

A lot of what goes on here SHOULD be on Tractor Tales.

Not trying to pee in your pool, but...

Talers is NOT a 'chatroom'...It is a Bulletin Board format just like this one.

A chatroom is a place where there is immediate and automatic update of the screen when someone posts...If you are not present in a Chatroom for the 'conversation' there is no coming in later to 'catch up' unless some kind soul is logging the text for you as it 'disappears' after it is sent. Very little info is saved on a Chat Server. It actually ats as a conduit for linking people, not as a 'file' server and saving messages like this place...

There are two main types of 'chat'...One is the method used in the message posted below by DeadCarp...That is called a Java Applet Chat and is run right in your browser window...The Second type is known as IRC which stands for Internet Relay Chat...This involves the downloading of a small program that allows you to connect to IRC servers all over the world...IRC also allows for the passage of files (pictures, programs, music, video, etc.) through their servers...There are commands for playing sounds as well throughout a 'conversation'...

I agree with you that much of what goes on here should be posted elsewhere...But moving it to Tales is not the answer, as much of what goes on there would be better served by being done off of Miss Kims bandwidth...

Easy...    Posted 09-16-2002 at 08:10:22       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I brought this up about a year ago and got very little response...

It is simple to open an IRC chatroom on one of the several hundred server nets out there.
I know a couple of small fairly quiet out of the way nets that are happy to let people open rooms and there is never a cost.

This would also free up bandwidth for Miss Kim...

All you have to do is download a small free program like mIRC or IRCle and load it in your puter...point the program to a server and join or create one of the millions of rooms out there.

I would be willing to OPEN the room and point everyone there, but I will not be a Channel Operator (OP) as it takes all the fun out being a chatter and a cOP at the same time ;-)

I'm not much into chat rooms but our family gets together saturday mornings on aim. I also visit one on sunday mornings through compuserve, (thats a pain to get into) and there is one on yahoo, that I enjoy talking to folks around the world but the crazies are always coming in there.
Don't know how, but mebbe if enough aim screen names come together we could do something. This room is a delayed chat half the time anyway(grin)

Anyone with AIM (Instant messenger) can make a private chat room, give it the name of their choice, and invite whomever they choose. They can then keep an icon on their desktop so they can return to the room any time. I left AOL, but still chat with the friends I made there often in an AIM room. Sometimes undesirables find it and we have to change rooms, but that isn't a big problem.

Once you go to an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) program you will never chat with your browser again...

God, I hope so    Posted 09-15-2002 at 16:46:43       [Reply]  [No Email]
