Yahoo chat rooms have apparently succumbed to the vagaries of that organisation's
incompetence (is the best word I can think of)
the Tuesday evening Chat sessions there have been deactivated.
In general the alternative the original rik's room works fine, although from time to time some chatters are having a problem getting in most recently "guitarman" Peter
see one hint below. I am going to post this on both the Newsgroup
alt.music.lightfoot accessible via the archived Google Groups site at:-http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...usic.lightfoot
or via any newsreader such as Outlook Express
and on Florian's (corfid) Discussion Forum at http://www.corfid.com/cgi-bin/ubb/Ultimate.cgi
we are getting a very satisfactory attendance in Rik's Chat Room every
Friday evening at 9 pm EST last Friday there were a total of 9 including a pair of welcome "newcomers" "Dan from NY" and "mieman from Iowa". Tonight Ron from Melbourne is hibernating so he wont bother anyone who attends for once
As previously recommended in my Newsgroup postings by far the best means to
participate is to firstly download install and configure the Internet Relay Chat
"client" mIRC
full illustrated instructions and details are shown on my web site at http://johnfowles.org.uk/LIGHTFOOT/c...tingupmIRC.htm
or my "shorturl" link http://www.mirc.shorturl.com
the non-mIRC direct entry URL is http://chat.cjb.net/gordonlightfootchat
or the "shorturl" link at http://www.rikschatroom.shorturl.com

Please note that riks room requires the (automatic) downloading of a Java
applet so if you do not
immediately see a largish gray/grey rectangle loading
ensure that your "Java scripting" has not somehow been set to "disable"
Internet Explorer-tools-internet options-security-custom level
then scroll down to the "scripting" options part and under java scripting
select "enable"
If you are perchance using Netscape tough! you will have to ask Ed Mullen
any other questions please e-mail me
By The Way using the direct method entails entering a nickname
which you might find has already been registered by another punter
configuring mIRC gives you the option I believe of picking any nick you
desire
once in the room either way you can simply change your nick by typing /nick
followed by whatever name you want
example type as follows /nick newname
Cheers

What about a voice chat? If you have a microphone, you can go to either one of two sites: www.Audio-Tips.com
or www.For-The-People.com
and register to chat. Let me know if this sounds like a good idea. I'm registered at both places, so whichever one looks best, let me know.
Thanks a lot.

Last Friday's chat was interesting as always and we welcomed back "tilt" from somewhere in NY
So tonight as every Friday evening at 9pm EST come in to http://chat.cjb.net/gordonlightfootchat or click on my shorturl: http://www.rikschatroom.shorturl.com (I have just checked and both link to
the familiar old room
whereas the chatroom link on Rik's web site page now brings up a link to his proposed new Bravenet chat room only at the moment
Even better is to get mIRC full details from my site page http://www.mirc.shorturl.com
Which reminds me again that Erica promised a concise write up on the benefits of using mIRC "by thanksgiving" you said E which duly pased with nothing from Florida to elucidate my efforts to encourage use of mIRC
But in particular mIRC facilitates the copying and pasting of text plus recall of your previous typed entries through the simple use of the up and down arrows.
Some time ago it was suggested that each session should have a topic for discussion
tonight I will propose that each of the "regulars" takes a turn at posting each weeks reminder and suggesting a topic for that evening's session
TO start the ball rolling tonight I suggest we follow up on the very successful
Newsgroup thread on favorite songs and lyrics see my summing up at http://www.favoritelyrics.shorturl.com
By The Way the full newsgroup can be easily accessed at http://www.newsgroup.shorturl.com

P.S. I forgot to say two things
Firstly I forgot to press Erica last week in the chat room for her promised write up extolling the virtues of using mIRC. So be warned I am on the warpath Erkie!!
Secondly I forgot to suggest a topic for tonight or ask last week for a volunteer to set this week's topic. In desperation I am going to suggest:-
"which is your favo(u)rite Gord album cover and why?
Keep taking the tablets and visiting the newsgroup alt.music.lightfoot at http://www.newsgroup.shorturl.com

Sorry but I was unable to attend last Friday's session. So I have no idea how many turned up. I hope that both Susan and I can participate 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
I am still hoping for Erkie's long promised write up on the benefits of using mIRC.
which mainly comprise the facility to copy and paste text plus the cycling through your own typed entries using the up and down keys
cheers

But I hope to be able to attend tonight at 9pm EST
the link is http://www.rikschatroom.shorturl.com
and I will suggest a topic
"which is you favo(u)rite Lightfoot album cover and why??"

Cheers

Sorry but I have forgotten how many turned up at last week's session. But I
do recall a silent guest "hurricane7" who I now know was a newbie called
Patricia. I am hoping that she and both Susan and I can participate 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

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*
