To Bill the Administrator,

I asked this question last year.

Is there a "live chat" module available to piggy back on this forum software?

Reason I ask. Last night I think there was 5-6 of us on the forum. Green buttons were lit up.

Tonight Travis and I have been posting back and forth on a topic.

It would be neat/helpful if we had an "open forum running chat room" to pop up when discussing topics if a bunch of guys are online simultaneously.

Problem with an open chat is there is no record.

So you would not be able to go back and reference his info or have an opportunity for others to learn who may not be online at the time.

Chat rooms are so America Online anyway. :D:D:D

Not looking for a record.

Simply the ability for instant communication 2,3,4 guys, like a "conference call" but with typing ! :D

Billy. I appreciate the suggestion . Right now I would really like to keep the forum the way it is and build the content of the site. It is something to explore In the future but for now I would like to keep the site as simple as possible I'm terms of features etc. if we all start instant messaging eachother the site has the potential to get boring because we will be missing out on the conversation.
