    There have been a couple of inquiries recently about the chatroom. I think it's an under-used feature of the forum.

    I'm posting this thread, and I'll make it a sticky, so that it stays at the top of this section.

    If you would like to get together and chat, post here, something to the effect of, "I'm in the chatroom now." Then hang around and see if anyone shows up. Any time somebody posts to this thread, other members will be able to see how recently somebody has gone to the chatroom, and if they like, they can go and join the discussion, or if nobody is still there, post here again and see if anyone else joins in.

    Actually, Ross and I had quite a nice chat until I had to run off and take care of other business.


    You mean like this? I get it every time I go there, so I just click on yes, and it works fine. It says in the fine print at the bottom, "Only run if you trust the source."

    You trust us, Rob, don't you? :cool2

    Nope. Like a good mechanic, that sort of advice is priceless.



    Hey, I can't stay long, but I'm going to go into the chatroom now.

    Had a good chat with Digger ... Seems like a Nice Fella ... Interesting talking direct To members and Staff. Great!

    Anyhow, I get straight in the chat room no problem. No error or anything? Remember you can still surf the Net and HEF while using the chat function.

    Iam off out now but will be back later on this evening and will hovering around here.
