I`ll try, Glen. By the time I get in from the Shop, get/eat Dinner and walk the dogs, It is always after 7PM PST, so I usually don`t manage to do it. Must be more diligent....

because CGI driven chat rooms are annoying.

Now... If you want to set one up that uses IRC, I would be totally into that.  I even know a few IRC network admins that could make it happen.  It's old technology but it works!

Also I've not seen a link anywhere refering to the chat room.  I had no idea it existed at all till now.  Some big skype sessions or something of the like would be a lot of fun.

Check on the top right corner of the home page to find the entrance to the chat area. The rest of us aren't computer geeks and aren't interested in getting involved in the technology that allows us to chat. We just got into the system we have now and it works for the rest of us. If you care to lower yourself to the level of ordinary folk you're welcome to join us on Tuesday. When we get a decent sized group it can be a lot of fun plus there's often a lot of knowledge to draw on.

I'm probably at work when that's all going down.  Workin' 40 and finding time to stay a bachelor doesn't leave you with a lot of spare time during the work week.

Actually the chat could be set up in such a way it uses a web interface, and is accesible via an IRC client.

It has nothing to do with not liking you, and everything to do with not wanting to work around a lagging, cpu hogging, clunky interface that drives me up the wall.  The topic is, why don't I visit, and i'm letting you know why.  Now if you get offended about that, and take it personally, that's you're problem.

Your talking above most of our heads and we aren't interested in changing. We're too busy staying involved in lsr to get involved with all the little details involved in computer technology that doesn't involve racing.

Again, the invitation is extended.

Bob, our web elf, keeps things moving along - at a pace that most of us can follow.  We just got a clunky Chat Room to work better enough that we aren't going to futz with it for a while, I hope.

We've batted the idea of changing things to get more folks using the room -- but if nothing else, the two dozen time zones - four and more in this country alone -- make it a pain for one and all to use.  For instance -- The thing doesn't start 'til 9PM at our house -- and we're usually in bed by 9.30.  I seldom manage to stay up "late" enough to join the fun.  And then I think of Mike in SA and Anders in Sweden -- and am glad that it's only a little bit at a bad time for me.

But it's what we have and it seems to work - so all I can do is keep your ideas on the list of things that might help the site be better and easier for all.  Here, by the way, is a shot of the portion of the home page with the Chat Room liknk in it:

Actually it's considerably less clunky than expected.  html-5 is sometimes a wonderful thing.
