Have you tried signing in on the Java side? After you sign in on that side, just make sure you scroll down, the screen is small, and you can't see it unless you scroll down. I hope you can get in soon!

I don't know about your chat troubles (sorry) but I've been meaning to ask you.......

This "posting away on the pee machine" DDDDC of yours... it can't possibly mean what I keep thinking it means, right?? It's just my dirty mind hanging around in the gutter again, right??? :LOL

I'm almost ashamed to ask. (Almost.)

:LOL Jen!!! No - it doesn't mean that

My DD was in a CPF the other night - coverless. She likes to perch herself on the back of my monitor when I'm online and she peed - well - she peed right through it and into my monitor and it turned all purple and "bloop" it was dead!!!!

So - I think it's a take on the computers called "eMachine" s and the fact that my DD peed IN my computer - it came back to life after it dried out - and now it is my Pee Machine!

I tried to d'l the trillion or trillian or whatever - and it's a little green icon in the corner of my task bar now, but I can't get it to the chat room??

I'll try something else.

I wish there was some way we could all use AOL's private chat rooms. With AOL instant messenger, you can invite people who are online into a chat room, and it's such a simple thing. I got into Hyena chat a couple times with the Java thing, then suddently it wouldn't work anymore. So I downloaded mIRC, but I don't like the way it works really. At least I can get in every time now, though.

We have done this in the past when many ppl were having problems getting into the chat.

I have mirc too and it's not that exciting, but it works at least. :

Yes, we have done AIM chat from time to time. The biggest problem is that the room can't be open all the time -- someone has to set it up and send everyone invitations.

Maybe we could plan one night next week when we would have an AIM chat since some people can't get IRC running. How about Tuesday at 9 p.m. central until everyone tires out?

I can set up the conference room (or if someone else wants to volunteer for this, I certainly won't mind!) I also could do it Saturday night if the weekend is a better time for people.

Between now and then, you will need to PM me with your AIM name.

Is there a better way to do this? I'm just trying to be helpful, not take over!

Lisa, that sounds like a good idea to me! Maybe we could have a sticky with information on when the weekly chat will be and telling mamas to PM so and so with your AOL IM name if you want to join for that session? I know some mamas have DSL and are on all the time. Is there a way to keep a chat room open if someone is online all the time? Maybe that would work for a while, until that person had to shut down for some reason? I dunno... Just trying to figure out a way for the mamas who are having trouble to join in. Chat is fun!
