Idea: Live Chat!

We should have a live chat, so if you want to talk to someone in realtime, you could...and you also wouldn't have to wait for a rsponse if you really need help.

All I have is Yahoo chat, and I had a horrible enough time getting it on this old laptop.

If someone want tos chat with me...it will have to be on Yahoo.

The easiest thing to do is have a chat function right on this site.

I know other forums have this function, and I bet this one can too.

I like the idea too, and I agree with chocolatechef that the best place would be right on this site, rather than figuring out who uses what place for chat.

Admins?

The good chat room software (that integrates highly with oru forum software) is $100/year. There is a FREE version but I have had troubles on some sites where members login as other members. The more expensive version prevents this. Maybe we should try the free version and sswitch to the pay version once we know the room is getting some use....
