If you open it, I'm sure "they" will come!

I thought that the chat room was almost always available - I have gone there during the week to have a real-time confab with some one with a question - several times. Has something changed?

i think "open it" is just a figure of speach.

i think it is available any time the server is running.

I was thinking along the same lines reading this thread - most other forums that have a chat room- it is not restricted to just one evening. You can plan ahead and chat with anyone - or just go in anytime and hope that someone else is in there - my problem is by the time I have time to chat it is 11:00 and everyone has gone to bed!

It can be a bit nuts in there - well at least it was last winter - and I must say some of the conversations must have this old boys secret lingo cause half the time the conversation is about nothing of consequence - jibber jabber. There are good ones too it is just a matter of timing it right

My concern with having other nights chat is it might fragment what we have. Last Tues was very quiet - if we go to Tues and Thurs it might be worse - on the other hand we may get some who can do Thurs but not Tuesday....... If we do both, I will try to do both

I know there have been some chats going on on Sunday morning with folks over the big river.

I've got spyware... and got it BAD! I have worked on my home machine since the second of Dec trying to get it removed, and it's really virulent. I've tried every adware, spyware, and trojan remover that is legitimate along with all of the stand-alone removal tools, and Killbox, HiJackThis, and every other tool known to modern man. I've only found one thread on the internet about a similar infection, and they solved it, but the tools they used won't kill mine! I've edited and re-edited the registry, killed files, killed processes, unregistered .dll files, done it all in Safe Mode, done it from the recovery console, you name it, I've tried it. This damn software is sooo bad, it actually renames it's files after some number of removal iterations! Unbelievable!

So, that's my excuse for not showing up. Spyware. So there. That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!

Oh, and Soarhead, the closest thing I can compare chat with twenty or more participants to is what thinking must be like for an unmedicated schizophrenic. Dozens of seemingly unrelated and random thoughts zinging through cyberspace and ending up on your chat screen leaving you to make sense of who said what to whom in what stream-of-consciousness thread they're engaging in at the time.

And everyone's friendly. Always...

Somebody got a virtual beer? This damn spyware is giving me a headache! I need a break!

Roger

i had the same self renaming spyware on my 'puter too!

here have a case of beer....you'll need it!

try this, delete ad aware and reload it. the earlier versions cannot handle such a insidious invader. no mater how many times you update it. get adaware se. it is free on the lavasoft site.

i believe the newest version is SE1R120, it stops all the pop ups after you close your internet browser.

i too tried to remove it manually with no success!

Rog,

The fix is totally easy. Dump the PC and get a Mac.

Spyware, viruses, worms....mostly a thing of the past!

Some folks will just never get it. Really for some it's not an option...but for a good number, it really is worth taking a look at......the rumors of Apple's death over the years have been greatly exaggerated.
