Another new chatroom
« on: January 31, 2007, 10:48:08 PM »

We've been having a lot of problems with the latest chatroom in the last couple of days with the XML errors, so it's time to try another one.

Just use the same Chat link as before, it now points to a new chatroom.

This one is called ARSC Chat (A Really Simple Chat), and looks pretty good so far.  It hasn't been customized at all yet, so if we have a good first impression, I'll work on modifications.

Let me know what you think, especially compared to the last chatroom.

Ok.  But the real problem, is that there are a few guys who regularly go in there, get all drunk, and pick on me.  I'm just sayin'.

Even when we're not drunk we pick on you.  Devil Grin

I look forward to using the new chat. I've been xml'd enough that it was starting to give me a complex.

Actually, when stroh drinks he develops alcohol induced split personality disorder and picks on himself. It's sorta like that Phillip K. *8==>* novel A Scanner Darkly. Very sad, really.

You say that as if there's an alternative possible.

I tried the new chatroom a little last night and had these thoughts:

- response time was pretty good.  We'll see how it handles a bunch of people at once, though.

- I like how you can select a color for your text, the old chatroom had some bad colors and repeated colors among people, so you had to keep changing names to get a new color

- The emoticons aren't as obvious and you can't click on them, but I don't see a lot of smileys used in chat anyway.

- One cool feature is the multiple rooms.  Sometimes when there's a bunch of people in the same room, it can get crazy with several conversations going on simultaneously, and it gets hard to follow, so maybe this will help.

Great. Multiple rooms.

I'll be able to bring more of my alter-egos along for the ride.

Bummer.  That one looked pretty promising.

I guess I'll try a different one.

OK, I swapped that last chatroom out and went back to trying a java chatroom applet.  This one is a signed applet, though, which is good.

This chatroom is called  Parachat.

Unfortunately with this chatroom, you can't display the number of users in chat on the site like CHAT(4).
