Maybe a stupid question, but THIS is PXWorldChat, right? Or is there a separate chat room?

real time chat is always better , this forum although named pressf1 chat prob means a place to chat about random non puter related things. Alot of pressf1 members just share IM's which IMO is better then chat

Yeah real time chat is better but my question is: Where is the real time chat here on PF1?

There ain't one. The one beetle refers to is ChatF1. farr.net.nz/chat

Sad to say I haven't been there for a while. Now it's all IRC based. Plus the fact Firefox forgot what my password was _

For beeps sake....if it was IRC ???? i wont be there so.... no bloody idea where it is anyway.
I dont use IRC and im on dial up .........

cos nobody has told me And others maybe....the hows and whys of getting there.
not that im remotely interested...... im not geek enuf apparently or the wrong side of 20 it seems.............. :rolleyes:

no offence but it brass's me off this guy asked a simple question, and yet he didnt receive the answer about what chat place i use, ( and every body knows dont they i broadcast it enuf???? No?) that nots IRC.....


Chat F1 is fine for us non geek mortals.............. :@@:

Actually I was talking to someone from England, and he had the same problems. IRC, AIM, ICQ & YIM all work (using trillian so it's 1 client)

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Luvya, Beetle !!

Like the old saying goes: "Misery likes company."
So thanks for sharing about life being screwed up, cuz here I am on holiday next to Coogee Beach in Sydney and an operation I had has flared up and it makes walking a pain, literally.... and what I feel like doing is to run along the beach, etc. Well well, there is always trusty PF1 to make me feel better. :D And I don't even have to go to an internet cafe as I have a ten buck for two weeks surf til ya drop internet card. :thumbs:

beetle

Yeah well, misery is an understatement at the moment....:p

Hope ya get better soon and home in no time flat.....

Life is I found to be different levels of crap, the more knowledgeable you are the worse things get, cos you get a lot deeper involved with the brain cells....LOL so that sinking feeling sets in too late to be of help...LOL

probably similar to when the helicopter blades stop rotating feeling.....

Mortals feel pain, and at the mo id say you and me have different levels of pain in our lives.... but things will get better for all concerned ...hope .....

Take care, and spot ya round pf1....

I'll rather use Mirc. More channels to chat in, go to, and more people as well.

It'll be better, if a channel was made on a server that already exists, instead of trying to create one and expect people to visit it.

And one where u can op, if u get added, and one with decent commands in/on it.

I've got enough usernames/passwords to remember let alone try and remember one thats web based :2cents:

Well thats fine, but as far as i can tell all the IRC and other sites seem to be a big flop and nobody bothers to go there, no matter how good they are reported to be, seems everybody is either to lazy or cant be bothered or like me has no idea the ins and out of getting there.


but hey what ever blows your trumpet. you go with it, hope you happy when you get there.

cos its hard work i see no matter what site / channel you go to, to actually get people there all at same time. and im always the one who catches the flack of how bad chat f1 is, but does anyone actually get something worthwhile and something that works, and is busy going?

chat is fine by me, i appreciate the imput liam and sal gives us by providing us with a free site for chat and images. donations all gratefully accepted by them of course.

and if ya havent got something nice to say, then yeah dont bother, enuf rant from me.

dont look gift horse's in the mouth.

grumpy beetle signing off.

see ya whenever if.

The lag is terrible, especially when right next to an IRC room :annoyed:

agent
22-01-2005, 10:47 PM
Perhaps because ChatF1 goes to a US-based server.

I'm willing to bet the lag on any IRC server hosted on a Jetstream connection could get just as bad, though.

I'm willing to bet the lag on any IRC server hosted on a Jetstream connection could get just as bad, though.http://www.farr.net.nz/chat/ is designed to be web browser friendly by using a selfrefreshing chat window. Every few seconds the main frame is automaticly refreshed, and any new postings in the chat are displayed. The down side of this is that it may take a few seconds to display any new postings. Bummer ey? While the fact that the postings have to go to the states before they even get considered for the next refresh doesn't help, the "lag" that people refer to would be about the same even if CF1 was hosted by a machine on your own LAN.

The one thing that CF1 has over the IRC channel is that it is a more appealing space for those of us who sometimes wander off from chatting about computer issues.
:D

Perhaps it is a sign of growth that like PF1 itself, the privatly run chat extentions of this community have divided into chatty and technical spaces?

:D
