How about adding a real time chat room to the board? Would save some posts filling up with idle chatter (yeah, I know, I'm about the worst one for it).

That would be great. I went on a 'fencing' chat room recently to find two brazilian men who I had to speak to in french, to find that neither of them had ever fenced in their lives.:grin:

So you might as well have spoke to them in English, cause they probably still didn't have a clue what you were talking about? Kinda like half the conversation that goes on in this site!

It'd just give us something else to hijack

Moppet

Yeah, I suppose, but it'd be fun trying to do it. :grin: ;) :tongue:

D'Artignan

Somehow i think we'd succeed quite easily.;)

Moppet

Yup, just like we seem to with this one! Jaysus, we even managed to go off on one in a thread about a chat room! Now that takes skill...:yesyes:

A skill that is not really needed though. :confused:

Already been done - though it never took off. (probably cos no-one knew about it) The room still exists, just no-one uses it :P

Ah now I understand why I got a pm from Nessy fencer (inbox is emptied now)

I think to get chat room included in site we got to convince the mods a) that it would be used and b) that it wouldn't be abused.

I can get it up and running if people will use it, but to get it integrated into site we'd have to speak to Ben (aka KingKenny)

Seems like half the forums dropped in today, but everyone comes in, sees there's hardly anyone there and leaves. So there's an endless stream of familiar names but not much chatter :P

Anyways, if people are having problems accessing it. You can access it at the address above... or

-http://www.come-to-chat.com/cgi-bin/irc.cgi - This runs from the server end rather than the client side, so anyone without java or having problems with java client can use this. After it connects type /join #FencingForum.com

- http://www.come-to-chat.com/files/NS2002ue.zip - This is my version of mirc entitled Neo Script. You download it once and then just run it from your pc each time.
-Download and unzip it
-then run Neo Script.exe
-fill in the setup questions (you only need to do this the first time u run it)
-then go to the servers tab and select insomnia and click 'Connect me!' (or just type /server insomnia.come-to-chat.com at the command line).
-Once you're connected, just type /list and double click on #FencingForum.com from the list of channels.

et voila!

any problems, just give me a shout.

Room stats created...

http://www.come-to-chat.com/stats/fencingchat-8-3.html

(Normally at http://www.come-to-chat.com/stats/fencingchat.html but that one was generated from my own logs rather than the bot, since there wasn't enough data in bot logs to generate anything worthwhile)

apparently I don't have a potty mouth! :tongue:

There is one issue that I do know about - though it hasn't affected anyone so far.

I run a program called bopm (Blitzed Open Proxy Monitor - http://www.blitzed.org/bopm ) that actively scans for people connecting from open proxies as well as checking the IP address (kind of like a post code that is unique to every pc [though in most cases it changes everytime u connect to the net]) against various lists that store open proxy addresses. If a proxy is open it means people can connect through it, generally to abuse and cause havoc on chat (amongst other things), so it actively checks for them in order to stop this kind of abuse from happening.

Certain firewalls take offense to being scanned (this is because the same technique is used to find open proxies and other things to abuse) and block the server ip. If it does this, you'll find you can't connect to chat until you unblock it. The solution is to add the server ip (209.176.110.115) as trusted.


As far as I know this doesn't affect the default windows XP firewall.

If you do have this problem, give me a shout and I'll try and help :)

Edit: this doesn't affect the cgi client (address is earlier in thread) if u can't add ip as trusted, just use that. :)

The bug that crashed it yesterday got it again.

My fault I'm afraid. I tried to add something yesterday and it crashed. I thought I'd added some bad code and took it out and reloaded. Turns out it wasn;t the code after all - I must have pressed a wrong key somewhere or something and damaged the code. I've now replaced it with a backup copy, so i t should be aok. :)

http://www.come-to-chat.com/stats/fencingchat-yesterday.html

Shows the stats for the day before. the main stats are updated every 15 mins, but since it's updated at midnight and most people don't come on again till evening, it means the new one will be empty for most of the day. :)

Poor Neo, nobody likes him/her. He/She was attacked 11 times.
For example, like this:
* GBM slaps Neo about with a large rubber oyster
Moppet seems to be unliked too. He/She got beaten 5 times.

Boo

previous connect logs provide some clue as to the real identity of Mr Roch... who could it be I wonder? :grin:

apologies for posting full address - I meant to comment out the host but got there after 5 min cut-off. I can't help wondering though - 1) is that adsl supplied by waitrose? Don't think it is, since there's no dynamic numbers etc and it's branded as demon. 2) Is someone at work? But why would a large company like waitrose use adsl - wouldn't they have a nice fat leased line? 3) Did someone ask for that host from demon? (who give u a static ip and let u choose ur host) - why? :P

No it would, bash.org only accepts like 2% of quotes submitted, and one of the rules is that it shouldn't contain an in joke, or only be funny to a certain group of people
