Ben - Do you actually have anything constructive to say about anything this club does?
It seems to me all you do is moan about everything? If you dont like the chat room either find one that works for us or write one yourself and we will use that. Jas has spent ages trying to get this new forum up and running and sometimes people dont atually understand how difficult things are to maintain. I reckon Jas spends 4 out of 5 evenings a week along with all day on Sunday keeping this club up and running. It is now beginning to eat into my time, not that I mind yet, but recognise that it isnt a 2 minute job keeping this club going.
I would recommend IRC (Internet Relay Chat) but that will probably mean using a server we dont own... and I have only setup IRC Servers running on *BSD and Linux. Cliosport runs on Win2K, right?
If you all want a new chat room, and Jas wants to keep it all hosted on the same server, maybe we should look into a Java client? There are a fair few around that would probably suit us down to the ground.
As for time consuming, tell me about it. I know all about running public websites and services.
I have e-mailed Jas twice over various things, and I always get a reply the same day - I sent an e-mail a few hours ago and I got a reply 20 minutes later (20 minutes and 6 seconds to be precise), with what I needed to have done with regard to the new forum... Hes doing a Great Job!
