Anthony forgot to restart the service after a server crash earlier this week. Alas, he's not in a position to do it right now, so it looks like we'll have to postpone any chatting for this week.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

Last night it was a huge gang.

I wonder if anyone besides me is interested in chatting sometimes other than on Sunday nights? I think the server is up and working all the time. I am going to try logging in tonight (Monday) and see if anyone shows up.

I think having specific dates and times for folks to meet up still makes sense for a forum of this size. Maybe adding a mid-week option to the schedule would be a good idea. Something like Wednesday evening?

I used to be with ‘it,’ but then they changed what ‘it’ was. Now what I’m with isn’t ‘it,’ and what’s ‘it’ seems weird and scary.
