Once again it's Friday!

Our regular 'Friday Nite Chat' begins at 9pm (US Eastern Standard Time) and goes until .... - well, it usually goes for a long time as people come and go, and come and go and come ...

Your Forum name and password get you in there. The way to log in is on the left side of this page through the:

Yes Bill,
I haven't been there for a couple of weeks,
but so I am told, there have been good numbers coming in.
Thanks for patronising the Chat Rooms, people, without you's, it would all be a waste of time and effort.
The format we have now, is one that we can all simply use.
If you haven't had a look at the Friday Chat here, you are really missing out on something special, it's nothing like the BB here, it's Real Time!.
Get in and Enjoy!.
It's just like an ECN box of chocolates, you just never know who your'e going to get.

Good Lord, I have found the depths of bad humour!, Sorry Guys!

But on the serious side of things, both the people that are using the Chat rooms and those that are logging in for the first time.
There is a certain delay, between the time that you enter your details and hit the "LOGIN NOW" button and when the Chat-room actually opens for you.
Depending upon wether you have a Dial-Up connection or an ADSL connection, be prepared to wait a wee while.
When you hear the dog bark, you are in.
After that, click on the little icon with the hammer and the screwdriver.
That's the Control Panel, you will be instructed to wait while it loads, when it does, check the boxes as you feel necessary.
BTW, if you ever find that you cannot type in the Text Entry Area, click on it with your left mouse button, you should always have a flashing cursor to input words in that area.
It's a lot easier to have you do this than explain it, like most things, it get's easier once you've done it.
Need help?, Ask away!.
That's what us Moderators are here for.

I'd like to add that it's also fun!

Bad humor that's been heavily influenced and finely honed by talking to the rest of us on Friday Nights, Mike?? [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

It's Sunday here in NZ.
At the moment, I'm restricted to Sunday's in the Chat rooms.
FF training on Saturday's, means I'm out all day.
But there is a good crew in the room at the moment, please come join us, if you feel like it!. [Linked Image]

Dereck,

Yes, it's been slower the last few weeks. I know that I haven't been there myself a lot lately, with outside social activities going on and vacations, etc. but there still seems to be a group of people that come on a bit later.

I figure things will pick up again soon as Fall sets in. And, with the 2005 NEC coming out soon we should have some new stuff to talk about.
