It could be a good idea to install a chat room on the site so people could talk to each other in real time about anything they are seeing,things to focus on etc.

I tend to agree with Dave. I can live with the small delay. Also there is less chance of being caught on IFAS at work and getting fired :wink:

The main problem with the is it will greatly increase our bandwidth usage, which will cost extra money, something IFAS is not rolling in!

Chat rooms have thier place but I tend to agree with Dave & John there.
The thing with them is there is no record kept and therefore not any good for someone
that wants to search the site to see has a specific question been asked before.

The boards do end up getting pretty buys on nights when there is something happening eg the Lunar Eclipse in March.
