      Dan and all,

      I know you'll find this hard to believe, but I've NEVER used IRC. I'm sure I
      have a client for it somewhere, but I have no idea how to set up an account
      or whatever is needed.

      The chat in the Yahoo group opened up without any problem in Navigator 7.2 on
      a PC - no downloads, no warnings, no nuttin'.

      I don't care when we use. We can just use the group email like we have been -
      or Yahoo IM or AIM, or... Some time back I even had an ICQ account. Now I
      have the catch-22 where the account needs some kind of confirmation and I
      closed the email account where they send the confirmations! Jezz these
      'puters sure are fun!

      Evan,

      We've had problems with the yahoo java chat too, it kept booting peopleoff.
      So we just use the yahoo instant messenger[it's free] to open up achat room.
      Then we continue using the same screename that we use tologon to the yahoo
      newsgroup.

      True! I tried just now and couldn't get theYahoo Groups client to work in
      Firefox 1.04. Even installed some Javaplug-ins. Anyone have suggestions?

      I'm not anti-Microsoft, but I hate to mandateits use to the group. LOL,
      it's bad enough that I made everyone doYahoo (which was selected for a
      logical reason -- wide availability,easy control, pre-built.) It will no
      longer be needed when Johnfinishes our new web site. No pressure, Mr.
      Allain. :)
