My goodness. "You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone." :giggle:

 

I just forgot to turn the chat back on a few days ago. It's all taken care of now.

Tried getting to the room early tonight, and I'm getting "Connection failed (Could not connect)" in mibbit and mirc

 

Thanks for the reminder MistyOLR; but I'm having the same issues.

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?

Sounds like a fine idea.

 

Maybe at 9 or 10 eastern to give the west coast folks a shot.

 

Just saw Maine Rider pop in and out, but he left beforeI could say hi.

 

It's possible to use a standard IRC client to connect, if that's your kind of thing.

A slot like 7PM PT/10PM ET would be nice for us west coasters and you eastern insomniacs. :)

 

Usually past my bedtime ...

 

I have been popping in and out some though, and now and then find another person to chat with.

Like now, we're having fun and you're* not.

 

*Unless "you" is Maine Rider, then you're one of the cool kids having fun. :D

What is the difference between this 'live chat', and posting replys on a thread?

 

Why not have live chat always available, or else a thread that is dedicated to 'live' conversations at all times?

This might solve the problem of various threads going off on all sorts of rambling tangents that have little or nothing to do with the original subject...

The live chat is always available, but is mostly quiet except Sunday nights. But lastly there is some activity at other random times...

The live chat isn't archived on the web like these posts are - if you're not there, you miss the conversation.

As Maine Rider mentioned, it is. Just point your web browser (or IRC client!) to irc.amtraktrains.com and join in.

I see that as a feature, not a bug.

If AU ever starts our own business, we should call it the Rambling Tangent Central Railway. :)

Does anyoneknow which irc server #amtrak is on? I have an irc app for my Android tablet and cannot seem to find the channel on any of the xervers it lists...

The server is irc.amtraktrains.com, it most likely will not be listed and you'll have to type that in by hand.

You need to set the port to 6668, I think that 6667 works too.

And the channel is #amtrak
