    Crier Help On Chat Room

    Could not enter chat room tonight. Turned off firewall, made sure Java was on, no go. Any other thoughts?

    Question

    Maybe some of this info will help:

    While your browser may be Java-enabled, it's possible that your version of Java, or your browser, or your browser settings, are not fully compatible with our chat system. Nearly all problems can be resolved by one or both of these two steps:


    Sun is the company that invented Java. They have a free version of Java available for download on their website. Simply go there and download and install this version of Java; this resolves nearly all problems accessing the room, and other Java glitches, too! It's free and easy at this link: http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp.

    If that alone does not resolve your problem, you may want to check and see if you are using the most recent update of your operating system and browser. Many users are not aware of updates to their software, which are nearly always free from the software maker.
    If you are running a Windows system:
    Windows Update

    If you are running a Mac:
    Mac OS 10.x Updates
    Mac OS 9.x Updates

    Note: Some users of lower versions of the Mac OS have not been able to resolve their problems with accessing the chat, even by following these steps.

    I also noticed that last night when I attempted to enter the chat room, I clicked the quick chat now, and got the same stuff that Pete mentioned...ads, sign ups etc...

    Then when I tried to re-enter without clicking the quick chat now button, nothing happened.

    Soooo, I exited, rebooted, and re-tried. Bingo...it worked. The key, was if doing it wrong first, then further attempts wouldn't work because of the firewall...I think.

    We should try this again some time.

    Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

    Thumbs up Thanks Jo

    It was the Java that caused the problem. Hehe, not like I won't get bashed for liking Microsoft and feeling it couldn't possibly be anything with that....hey folks give me a break, I'm the Mommy of one of their trillions of engineers...., I know my MS products are always current. Apparently my Java wasn't. I just downloaded from the supplied link and chat opened fine. Thanks again.

    Chip, I thought you were just trying to see if I was paying attention to the forums I moderate! I think Optiboard deferred its chat room to any one of the instant messanging sevices available.

    It is now the future. Can we have a chat room now?
    Bart Smith, continuing to be awesome since 1982 so that you don't have to.

    Love is a duet, each voice complementing each other and making them sound better than they would alone, each voice at times stepping back and letting the other shine. We've got a pretty good duet going Tina.

    On April 28th, I'll be marrying my best friend. I can't wait!

    A lack of planning on your part DOES NOT constitute an emergency on mine!
