    The new old chat room is working great. Thank you, that’s so much better.

    Do you need special privilege to start a private chat room? I couldn’t figure out how to do it…

  • Machinist

    Nope

    I’m with NAP on that one. I don’t see that I have the option.

    By the way having the old chat room back is great. Thanks again Ken.

    I disagree; I prefer the new chat room. At a free internet outlet, I need to reload Java and go thru other whole 9 yard procedures before I can get into the old chatroom . Ken, please bring back the new chatroom.

    That sounds like the fault of the free internet outlet, not the chat room software. I think a more logical solution would be for you to find some other way of accessing it.

    Nice try, good assumption & recommendation.

    Is it the fault of a Steve Jobs’ free internet outlet? It’s unlikely because the new chatroom has worked there fine previously.

    Is it also the fault of Tor-Brower too? It’s unlikely for the same reason. The new chatroom never requires the reload of Java in the outlet nor in the my homebase thru the Tor-brower, but the old chatroom does.

    It seems you are the only one with this compatibility issue, so perhaps you should find an alternative to Tor-Browser since it blocks Java applications.

    I sympathize with your situation, but consider that after taking an opinion poll, Ken graciously spent $285 to renew a one-year license for this chat room. Unless you can convince the majority to revert back to the old one, and reimburse Ken the time and money spent, I see no logic to revert back to the old chat room because of one user’s (avoidable) compatibility issue. I understand your frustration, but consider the bigger picture here.

    Creating a new room is limited to privileged members, which generally means someone with 10 posts or more.

    Jacob, how about using a smartphone to access the chat room instead?

    After all the dust has settled, I rather like the combination of IMs and the old chat room. Even with the Java headaches.

    Did the android thing Thursday and other than being slow at typing it rocked lol! Thank you Ken.

    Wow, what a coincident! This morning Father Murphy gave a great sermon in which he advised the parishioners to stop arguing or pleading pointlessly. He ended the sermon with Friedrich Nietzsche’s quote:

    “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”

    Hmm… perhaps a super-AP may be correct. He cautioned that posting or chatting is negative EV as soon as when there’s nothing you get in return. OK, you guys have your ways, and I have mine. I’ll spend more time on tables instead of in the old chatroom .
