The chat room has been on the fritz for a few days, what happened?
Sorry, it may be down for some time, I should have made an announcement.
I have to decide whether it's worth keeping or not, for a number of reasons.
Among them, - We haven't had any scheduled events for awhile now, and it does detract from participation in the Forum (here).
Personally,I'm sorry you feel that way. I would like if you could expand on those thoughts.
Is it financial? None of my business,But I must ask. As For scheduled events. Not sure what your asking. We Have on many occasions had scheduled -meetings- Both social and technical. The offer is many times placed out for members to join in. I have seen many come in. If it is a topic,we recommend that they/we post it on the site.
Myself,I have learned a great deal and made some friends thru the 'chat' (I hope it is mutual).
Some shy away from very structured 'chat', i am one. i enjoy the casual,yet technical and (on occasion) foolish 'chat'.
