    I keep finding posts that the chat server is down, and when doing a search all I can find are links to Chat2...which never works for me.

    Where is the link to the regular chat?

    I've never been able to get either chat to work. Asks for my handle and then does nothing.

    Chat is, apparently, busted again today! Chat 2 is sometimes very slow to open up once you've signed in.

    That's because it's down. Fred

    Hey Fred.... saw you in there but couldn't get in!

    I find chat 2 is easier to access if I close my firewall.

    I'm using a PC, but I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. IE is a piece of bloated junk. [​IMG]

    From what I can tell, the problem seems to be a server issue, and not with my browser. Has anyone ever considered opening a chat channel on an IRC network?

    Not me.... I use Mozilla Firefox 0.9.2 (Updated last week)

    and it works fine (When it's up)

    Here's the link:

    When it's down I get a "Connection Refused" error in Firefox.

    Chat 2 needs the latest Javascript to work right - no matter what browser you use....

    You wouldn't be using AOL by anychance would you? I found I couldn't get into chat until I tried Internet Explorer.
