It's fickle-looking as it loads. The words keep changing rapidly at the bottom like it's trying to load something.
But I hung in there for a minute, and it worked. I have cable too.
Sep 12, '02Joined: Jul '02; Posts: 78I have cable, a 1.6Ghz Athlon processor, and 256 megs of RAM. I rarely have problems with speed on my computer, but this whole chat thing bites the big one. On the first try, it took 30 seconds to load. That's a loooong time. Once it was loaded I couldn't figure out if I actually in a chat room or if I needed to enter one. Couldn't figure out how to change rooms. Tried to reload the chatroom and it locked up the window and very nearly locked my whole computer. Not very user friendly.

Sep 12, '02Occupation: Forensic Investigator Joined: Aug '00; Posts: 29; Likes: 1for those that would like to try mirc which is a free downloadable chat client for pc users only (no mac or webtv) you can get it from my sister site at www.streetcops.net
Look for the downloadable mirc midway on the page the is 2MG in size. Once you download it and connect to the net you will join a room called #coastguard, all you have to type is /join #allnurses
we can show u how to rid the room called coastguard easily.
While Brian is testing his chat client, we at cajnet are proud to be part of allnurses and hope that those that wish to come will.
You can also access it from www.cajnet.com and click the java and access allnurses from there!
Sep 12, '02Occupation: Community Health Nurse Joined: Jun '01; Posts: 973; Likes: 38I think I might have a solution. I looked at the source code for the new java applet. It points to Klagenfurt.AT.EU.WorldIRC.org, but if that was changed to neworleans.cajnet.com it should run through caj's server, while still keeping the new-java look.
For those of you not able to connect through the JAVA, there is a way into the new area.
the server is Klagenfurt.AT.EU.WorldIRC.org
room is #allnurses.
works the same, and if you are mircing, you can be in both at once.
but, I really do think that redirection of the applet would work, and I would be willing to help!
Just let me know

I'm fine w/ cajnet using mirc. There's ircle for Mac folks and Pirch as an alternate to mirc for pc people. Of course I'm just not a real fan of java yet.
