    Rich, I am using aol.com and Windows ME. So it cant be a mac problem. I do understand that aol has some kind of a restriction to some tunnels that dont let them see what traffic is being sent. This is to protect against mainly child porn. since this is the first time this has happened i dont know if that could be it. thanks for your help in this matter. Mark:confused:

    Mark, was that you that logged in as Eagle? We all saw you come and go... Try using Internet Explorer, instead of the AOL browser. Might have better luck.

    See ya tomorrow night!

    I used internet explorer as suggested and got the same result. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. And yes I was using eagle as a nick.

    Mark/Eagle:

    Val (Spitfire) also has the same problems you mention. However, if she sticks around long enough, eventually it starts to work. I suggest you come in tonight aroung 9 or so (EST) when there are plenty of folks, and just leave the window open for a few minutes, while you do other things. If after 5 or 10 minutes you don't see the chatroom, then I'm not sure what else there may be to try. :(
