New chat format doesn't preview who is there...
Feb 21st, 2008 at 10:23pm
 
And I don't like it. Sad

Used to be, I could log in and folks would see someone there, and come on in. Now you can't tell if anyone is home unless you log in. Angry

Can this be changed back? Undecided Please?

Hey Jim,

We can check to see if that is something we can add to the chat software.  This is the first time it has come up in the 8 months we've been using the new service as missed feature.  We outgrew our previous software's capabilities/capacity so changing back for one feature won't work for the site as a whole but I'll see if it's something we can add on.

This is alittle off topic, but here lately, I've been getting booted quite often. I've done the defrag, and disk clean up and deleted my cookies as well my history but I still get booted. I rebooted, unplugged my computer and did a cold restart and I still get the boot... any ideas as to what might help here?

Thanks...........

mike if i remember correctly u use satelite right? if they have tech support (and if its any good) call them and have them walk u threw Removing the network stack......Im pretty sure thats where your problem is ...on dial up when the connection is disconnecting and reconnecting gets u back on for a bit that is usually where its at ..you delete the all the network connection and renew it ..there is usually a corrupt file in the stack and this replaces it with new...give it a try.
