    I'd have loved to join in too, but I'm in England so it will be way to late in the day for me. Good luck with it Didn't realise it only went live tonight.

    I have however just put a post in the UK nurses board to see if anyone will log in there sometime for a chat. Maybe we could keep the room going for twenty four hours.

    Now that would be good support for the insomniacs amongst us!

    Jnette, think of it as being on a conference telephone call except you are typing your responses instead of speaking them. It is exactly like that. Everyone's usernames are on the screen in the "room" and you type your responses and hit enter and they pop up for everyone to read and respond right away.


    edited to add: it's like a combination of the message board and IM.

    OK ! IF I'm still up (been up since 0300), I'll give it a shot ! Never done this, so it might take me a while to learn the ropes... but hey, I'm a learning sponge, right? :chuckle

    Thanx for the "lesson" ! Wasn't hard at all !

    Hope to see others online.
