    If anyone wants to try voice chats you will just need to download and install the Team Speak client and have speakers or headphones and a Microphone.
    I use it for gaming and it works good.
    Here is the link to download Team Speak.
    It is freeware and all you will need is the Client.
    There is a public server called "Alpha Teamspeak" whoever wants to try voice chats can meet there. There will be a room called PF Chat and the password will be "physics"
    The password will keep the riff-raff out.

    Thanks! :)

    But seriously, CENTRAL time? I think those New Yorkers are going to throw a fit when they hear there are actually other time zones besides Eastern :)

    When I go to https://www.physicsforums.com/chat/flashchat.php" [Broken]
    I get a message saying that:

    The page your looking for can't be found.
    Please go back to the homepage: https://www.physicsforums.com/
    Physics Forums

    I mean, I might have been a wee bit over-eager and tried to chat an hour earlier than the posted time... could that be the reason for that message? Or is it because I'm using http://www.firefox.com" [Broken]?

    I have the voice server up, however I will be going to sleep at about 9:30 CST. I will leave the channel running if anyone wants to try it out.

    I'm from right-smack in the middle of the US -- Kansas. It's called the Sunflower State, but it's anything but sunny or flowery these days.

    And yes, chat is supposed to start in about 20 minutes now.

    p.s. - I don't know much about Rudd but atleast he's not Bush, err, I mean, Howard.
