Just have a question about the chat room.
(Being VERY computer challanged) would it be wise to install firewalls, etc., etc.???? I need all the advice I can get. Last night
I know that people in the room knew my ISP,
etc. Is this dangerous? Don't get me wrong,
I'm not suspecting anyone else of anything.
Am just questioning my own sanity when I don't know what I am doing. *lol*

Watchman,

Thanks so much! Will have to do that ASAP! I do have Norton Antivirus. It's
a weird coincidence, but had just heard someone talking about "Zone Alarm" the other
day. Had never heard of it before.

Thanks again.

brink,

You just got a gray screen at the chat room?
Wasn't there even a little space to type
a nickname in? I'm new at this, too. Hopefully someone will be able to help you figure this out before next Friday.

last friday the chat room resounded to the (typed) babble were 10 chatters
including a number of welcome new chatters
including Louise Madison who posts on corfid
Patricia the previously silent "hurricane7"
"akaruius" from near Ottawa
"Bud the spud"
"kooz" who appeared to bre in/at Steubenville in ohio
I am hoping that some of the above and both Susan and I will be
participating this
evening at 9pm EST
the link is either:- http://www.rikschatroom.shorturl.com or http://chat.cjb.net/gordonlightfootchat
or as always We recommend getting and setting up mIRC
go to:- http://www.mirc.shorturl.com
Erica's promised speel on mIRC will probably be a while forthcoming yet
as as she is still punishing me for being tardy about an earlier project
I had promised her so I consider that she is depriving other chatters of the
benefits of her thoughts on this matter

Another reminder:-
the Lightfoot webring ringmaster's page at http://www.johnfowles.org.uk/lightfoot
links you to a slew of Lightfoot related sites

Brink I am so sorry that you were unable to get in last Friday as LAM pointed out you should have seen a small nickname entry box in the middle of the gray screen if not it might be a problem with your browser's
settings you need to be able to correctly load a Java "applet" small programme which is what the chat room is. But if you follow the recommendation to get to grips with mIRC which does not utilise the aspplet at all I think. As far as I can tell such a problem never occurs
Cheers try again this evening
BTW to those who are worried when using mIRC we cannot actually see your full e-mail address just an indication so that by inspired guesswork I was able to suss out LAM last week and that steubenville was the location for "kooz" another newbie as reported above

Friday's chat Room
there was another successful chat session last Friday
We did not see Louise or Victoria this time but welcomed back for the third time recently the room's founder Rik plus another (former) Oregon resident Susan E. Also making a welcome albeit brief appearance was "the watchman" well known amongst Florian's Corfid Discussion Forum afficiandos as a very frequent and loquacious poster there.
tonight as usual there will be a session commencing at 9pm EST
the direct link is http://www.rikschatroom.shorturl.com
but it is more reliable and quicker if you install the mIRC client
full details on my web ite at http://www.mirc.shorturl.com
this page includes full congfiguration details irc link ref port number etc in a
fully illustrated (screenshots) format.
Rik was delighted to find all his old mIRC special codes were stil functional and the screen was soon full of graphical kisses being blown by Rik in Lori's direction.
I had expected "brink" to turn up but he didn't or was unable to get in despite my message to him on the Corfid discussion forum at http://www.corfid.shorturl.com
If you see this "brink" and still need help please e-mail me at
fowlesjohn@hotmail.com
Tonight's topic suggestion
tonight I think we could usefully discuss the relative merits of the newsgroup (alt.music.lightfoot)
short easy link http://www,newsgroup.shorturl.com
and the alternative as offered on Florian's Corfid site
In particular the fact that as the watchman recently demonstrated there one can use HTML and actually display pictures something that the non-binary newsgroup at least when viewed via Google groups as per the shorturl link I have given above cannot do
Cheers
John Fowles
Finally my Lightfoot "Webring"
ringmaster's site is available for you to use at http://www.johnfowles.org.uk/lightfoot
please sign the guest book there so I have an idea who is using it and whether it is still useful as I plan a major revamp soon

Yeah Watchman, I know the feeling. Sort of checking out this site and finding a post about dogs or religion.

Watchman, I have not visited the chat room in question. However I have drifted into various chat rooms in the past, and very quickly drifted out. A lot of people seem fixated with ASL. What that has to do with chatting is beyond me. Further to that the "subjects" are incomprehensible. Result, I gave up on chat rooms.

Your right Watchman, they are nice people, and they will give you a warm welcome, and another interesting thing, they all think that Gordon Lightfoot is the greatest singer / songwriter ever born.. It's interesting that when you agree on one thing, there are lots of other things that they all agree about ( and many things they don't !! ). But because of this it has never been necessary to make people stick to a topic ( John tries but has trouble ).

As you say the Chat Room isn't for everyone, but anyone who is interested they will certainly be welcomed by "like minded" people.

I hope to see lot's of people in the room tomorrow to help me celebrate " Australia Day". Fosters lager, meat pies, and Vegimite sandwiches will be on me...

See you there.... Ron

There was another successful chat session last Friday with a total attendance of 9 including Char in the apparently rather chilly Toronto area minus (24degrees F or was that Centipede??)
It is definitely warmer in Melbourne and I am led to believe that our Lighthead arsonist there might well put down his matches tomorrow morning for long enough to attend this evening. OK Ron and stop celebrating Australia Day early!!
tonight as usual there will be a session commencing at 9pm EST
the direct link is http://www.rikschatroom.shorturl.com

full details on my web ite at http://www.mirc.shorturl.com
I am hoping that tonight we will see "brink" as per her e-mail to me many thanks. I will also post this on the Corfid discussion forum at http://www.corfid.shorturl.com
the corresponding short snappy link for this newsgroup (alt.music.lightfoot) is http://www,newsgroup.shorturl.com
Tonight I would like to discuss other favo(u)urite singers that attendees might have as I have recently discovered that 2 other Lightheads one of whom is Matthew Bullis in Phoenix who posyts here usefully are like me fans of Buddy Holly and contribute to either the Newsgroup, Corfid and their choice of 2 Holly Yahoo Groups or one of the Lightfoot Groups
