Buttt.... I have been trying obviously unsucessfully to get the message across that due to Microsoft's legal agreement with Java
originator Sun Microsytems Microsoft will no longer be including the MJVM (Microsoft Java Virtual Machine) in any more issues of
Windows (beyond XP) as I found out after installing XP Media Center Edition on my new-build desktop 'puter.
So in that case it matters not a fig what Java applet one tries to utilise.
I have now (for the purpose of trying out other Java applets not conncted with chat) installed the equivalent Java Runtime Environment from Sun and as I had anticipated it is a damn sight longer winded and time consuming than the very easy acquisition then install of mIRC
Here is my message earlier today to my earlier Friday chat topic at:-
http://www.corfid.com/ubb/ultimatebb...c;f=1;t=003574

Meanwhile this evening chat at 9pm EST
using the buttons on:-

http://www.johnfowles.org.uk/lightfoot/chat/
using mIRC (red button)
or for those who still have a Java Virtual Machine installed the Blue button
or to check out mIRC the green button
John Fowles
I looked at Paltalk today but that is Java based as is the chat facility built into Yahoo groups
I know the very first Lightfoot chat rooms were set up by those fans on AOL usin erly versions of AIM as the "geodeticman" here is well aware.
but to my mind having to be invited in would be a backward step and an unecessary complication.
My favourite plan having seen chatzy in action and realising that it was possible to set up an IRC independant private chat that would be 100% based on my own web site using Javascript (where Javascript confusingly has nothing directly to do with Java other than sharing the first 4 letters) would be to find such a Javascript, which has proved difficult so far.
I thought I had found the ideal script at
http://www.qwadchat.com as per my 2 screenshots displayed earlier



but have yet to confirm that it will work reliably.Have you any experience of Javascript rooms?
That way would avoid the twin problems of Jsva and people's reluctance to get to grips with mIRC
and as evinced by brink distrust in it
I was especially interested in the qwadchat script because, as I demonstrated by displaying my own picture in the chat panel, it is possible
to use HTML and one of my ambitions is to get more friends using HTML

John,
Being an avid member of the computerally challenged,my suggestion is probably useless,but could "Trillion" work for Our needs??
My Mom(Star) sent it to me to hook up.She uses it all the time.Don't know if it would work for this situation or not...Just a thought..

Brian I do believe
Oops that sounds too much like a possible song title. How about it Bill Hall?
No on second thoughts you would probably be accused here of getting all religious.
As I was saying I think that Trillion is purely intended to be a system to facilitate the mutual chatting of people already members of more than one Instant Messenger setup and would therefore require the same tedious personal invitation method to get in. Anyway on Friday on mIRC chat I conducted an experiment with the mouse and we were able to meet in the qwadchat room I have previously mentioned

part of my Sherborn Inn picture which I had using HTML displayed complete so that Sharron could see it.
Many thanks Sharron for allowing me to use you as a guinea pig
I have few things to check then I will upload the necessary items to my web site so we can try this Javascript room more thoroughly

Don't mind a bit Bru,often wondered about the origin myself,but I'd guess Char might be close...Betcha I was the strongest best dressed little welder in the 1st grade!!(no such thing as kindergarden back then.....
Check with Mom to get the scoop,kinda curious myself???

OK Not OK chatzy is still down and I dislike the unacceptable lag
Others dislike mIRC; Java applets are out in the long run but we'll use the existing room at
Http://www.johnfowles.org.uk/lightfoot/chat/
this evening at 9PM.
Last Friday Sharron Mouse and I successfully used the qwadchat room as I evidenced with the screenshot above
I have now written a detailed page at:-
http://www.johnfowles.org.uk/qwadchat/
I suggest that some of you leave the main chat and experiment this evening then if no problems perhaps Bill's Saturday chat could be there
