As I said earlier, the chat system is a bit flaky, and unforunately it doesn't work for everyone.
This morning it seemed to be working when I tested it prior to leaving for work. It might have been something temporarily wrong with the system last night.
Either way, it isn't a bad idea to post a new thread in the Board News stating that Chat is open, times you might be in there, and possible topic for discussion. A lot of people just read the threads and don't glance at the upper right hand corner of the screen to see if anyone is in chat.
Also, don't forget that Thursday evening is our regular scheduled chat night. So drop by any time regardless, and hopefully others will show up.
As soon as I receive a response re: the applet from the developers, I will help everyone out personally.
Commited to serve,
