RE: tried registering
I've not done chat's over here, but as far as I know you don't have to do
anything special to register to go into the chat room. It's just that unless
you pre-arrange someone to meet you there, you are unlikely to find any
company at the chat room here on the UK e-group.
I do a regular chat on a Thursday morning at polymer clay central (UK time)
8-9am. http://forums.delphiforums.com/polymerclay/chat will take you
directly to the chat room. But if you aren't already a member you will have
to sign up first (it's quite straightforward), you can enter as a guest to
the ordinary message boards to read things, but can't actually post a
message as a guest or take part in a chat that way, so you'll need to have
your own ID by creating an account with them (at the moment it's still free
for the basic stuff). If you open the chat room and announce on the message
board that it is open, people are more likely to pop in to say hello.
As well as the regular chat this Thursday morning, I will also be hosting a
special guest chat on Thursday evening with Sue Heaser - 6-8pm. Everyone
