Server can't handle a chat right now as far as I know. I am sure Jeremy has more input on this.

Hey Tricky, didn't we bother you about starting one of these? Did the public outcry just not happen?

Cheers,

I took the chat reference off the homepage quite a while ago. Some links do still refer to it however. At this time we do not have the resources to offer this. It is very likly that at some point in the future it will come back.

What kind of resources are we talking about? Money? Horsepower?

The hamsters running on the wheel just isn't enough to power a chat.

LOL What about using a JAVA IRC chat applet and a third-party IRC server as the backbone of the chat?

Just how constructive would a chat room be? One-on-one chat maybe, but really, most chat rooms that I have seen are a complete mess most of the time.

Wouldn't complain if one existed for here though....

Well... Not under my tyrannic operatorship! One step away from the line and ... smack!

But seriously, I think it would be a pretty good idea. We could even try some "non-standard" chats for a change, like a modified quake server or something less heavy, like this: http://www.openverse.com/

Frankly non-standard chats (i.e. visual/3D) will make it harder to discuss technical issues... Imagine copy pasting your smb.conf into a tiny speech bubble on OpenVerse.
