    Ok, for the next three days the chat will be held here: https://www.physicsforums.com/chat/

    I will have a link to the chat room on the main page tomorrow.

    The way the chat is going to work is that regular members can't post in the chat, they have to PM a user called questionbot which his rep will be using and the rep will relay the question to dr. kaku, he will then post the question and answer it.

    Greg, you may want to post a notice about this elsewhere on the board (maybe on the main page) so folks see it and you get a good turn out. I don't know how many people wander this far back into the forums to see these announcements in a timely manner.

    Okay, I took a look around the room there (nice curtains, but the sofa is a bit lumpy :biggrin:)...not that I'll be asking any questions during the official chat events, but wanted to find my way around before it gets crowded. It's always nice to walk into an empty room and listen to your own voice echo. It looks like there are multiple rooms set up in there. Will Michio Kaku have a new one set up, or will it be in one of the ones currently there? Once folks have found the place, will it usually be open for regular chatting too, or just these special events?

    can I ask Dr. Kaku what he thinks about the upcoming Moonbear, Tribdog wedding?

    The chat will be in the room "classroom"

    Two questions:

    1) How do we PM a user using the Java interface?
    2) Can we use another application (mirc, for instance) instead of the java? What's the host address (irc server) for mirc if we can use it?

    1. Double click on the username in the user list.

    2. We choose not to use IRC because it's too insecure and very easy for script kiddies to ruin the experience.

    Hey guys, I can't find questionbot. How do I PM him?

    Thanks,
