Yup, I can't get in either. Something must be wrong on the server. I did drop an email to Anthony, but I guess that he hasn't seen it yet.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

We seem to be having some odd problem with the chat room's normal port (as it's called), so Anthony has adjusted the link above to use a new port, until such time as he can figure out what's wrong with the old port. In the meantime for anyone who wants to chat tonight, if you use the link above to the JAVA chat window you will have no problems getting in.

However if you use another program for chatting, like an IRC client, then you will need to update the port in the program to find the chat room. You'll need to replace the old port number of 6667 with the new port #6668, before you can connect.

Hope to see you in chat tonight. :)
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

Email sent, and I've removed your email address from the post, such that the spammers can't get it off the board.

As noted in the announcements forum, chat is down for now thanks to the server crash from last week.

Not sure if it will be up in time for next Sunday either, watch for further announcements.
Alan,
