New! Chat room testing

  1. post updated 9-13-02

    we have concluded our testing, thanks for everyones feedback. after testing the new chat, we decided to stick with the previous chat program we have been using.

    for some reason we have not figured out, a few people are having problems using the chat. the java chat works best with the microsoft internet explorer browser (ie). if you are having problems accessing the chat, please try ie you can download ie at:

    you can find the chat room here:

    hint: the evening hours are the best time to catch someone in the chat room. daytime hours are not as active.

    enjoy! and thanks again for all your feedback!

    Everytime I try to access the chat room, the screen freezes up. I tried it three times...and each time it happened again. I've got to reboot now..

    Loaded OK for me Brian, took a little longer than the old one but not too bad.
    Would love to be able to keep colours all the time without having to click each entry.
    What about emoticons???? any chance of them......I know I know I am never happy hehehe
    Nobody there to chat to so couldn't give it a proper test..will let you know when I have more.......
    Thankyou Brian for the continual upgrading in an already great site..allnurses is terrific

    Thanks for the feedback. It does take a few minutes to load. Try giving it a few minutes before giving up. Maybe it's a bug?

    It opened up, BUT maybe it's because I was all alone? I couldn't do anything. From what I could see, it's not very intuitive (and believe me, I'm chat-intuitive!!) or maybe it's not working correctly?

    I clicked on "join" thinking maybe that was the way "in." It asked me for my name and Key? Go figure.

    I just get a blank gray area with nothing. However, I'm logging in from the network at work so they may have done something on the network to disable chat. Is that possible?

    Brian, I am having the same problem as WAYNERN. Just a gray square.
