The problem we had with chat last Sunday was caused by a rather fundamental issue. The provider of the software that we use for this discussion board - Invision Power Services - removed the chat function from the software effective May 1.  We are looking at options to continue chat capability going forward. 

So Facebook group chat until a long term solution is found?

 

 

For now, yes. For those participating on the Facebook group, that is a good option for now.

What Facebook does not offer is an option for those who choose not to use their real names. But most of the rest of us are already friends on Facebook, so let any of us know if you want to participate.


Amtrak can be better! Tell your local, state and national elected officials to support a more robust rail system. Join NARP and your local rail advocacy organization.

I'm on travel now, but I intend to set up a web front end for an IRV channel that I will make available on one of my servers.

It'll be open for anyone to use, or the IRC client of your choice.

I get home early Sunday morning and will mess with it if I get a chance. If so, I'll publish something here.

Just as a reminder, if you are looking for chat, DO NOT go to the various chat links on the page headers or sidebars. Thanks to Ryan, we have a new and better chat at http://irc.stavely.org/chat.html .
