We've got the IRC Channel. And have for a Long time.

Maybe Kurt will post a link to "how"

Way, way ahead of you.

I did try a chat room on my own forum, so I'm speaking from experience.

I built the chat room as a learning exercise for me in AJAX programming, and as a extra feature on the fourm. At first it was ok, a few members used it, but it had some bandwidth issues that needed sorting. Eventually it just fizzled out.

I now use IRC.

C:\Users\HP_ADM~1\AppData\Local\Temp\mozOpenDownload could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder.

this is the results of 1 hour of dial up download of sea monkey client server, will try another hour and save to desktop this time .just not geeky enough I think,is there a pocket protector owner in the house? ::)

Try saving to desktop or documents.
Run the exe after that and should be fine.
