    Hey there. Nice chatroom that is. But it's IRC at the backend, isn't it? So whats the channels name and on which network does it go?

    Thanks. It's not IRC, sorry.

    Aw comon. Port it to IRC. Although thats probably the nicest Web-chat I've seen so far (that most likely because I never used any, but still...), I prefer my Xchat without the beeps and colors.

    what about

    irc.freenode.net #phyicsforum

    freenode is secure, very fast and can hold many thousand people per channel. You just need to include a free webircclient where you have had the chat so far.

    You can turn off the sound and change the color settings. There are basic instructions for that posted in the thread for the first chat.

    I've actually noticed that. I admit it's a very very nice thingy indeed. Still, I prefer to chat from a dedicated chat program - not from my browser.

    Too bad i was there only for 1 minute, but it was entertaining to talk about Cyrus 3.9+ rocket scientists' friends and Doc Al's fort of books. He probably can build an one story house with his books.

    I had fun, looking forward for the next chat.

    Most of the US pushed the clocks ahead an hour last night.

    A good idea, most sites have something like it and it was nice to be able to chat live with some of the PF regulars.
