>Yo, wiserds & peanut: how does one chat?????1. Go to http://www.egroups.com
2. Sign in with your email address and password (your Egroups password,
which may or may not be the same as your email password). If you don't know
your password, leave this field blank and click on sign-in. Egroups will
ask you if you want email sent to you regarding your password. They email
you an authorization number that will allow you to choose a new password for
yourself, so you'll have to go back to your email to get the authorization
number, then return to egroups to pick your password.
3. When you have successfully signed in with your password, you will see a
screen that lists the groups you subscribe to (probably only ujeni). Click
on ujeni to go to our group. (This page also allows you to start your own
group--it's great if you want to start a group for your family, your office,
a club, whatever).
4. Down the left side of the page you will see a list of activities open to
the group. You can click to see a list of the ujeni members, create or vote
in polls, post messages to the group, chat, add links, add items to the
group calendar, and several other things. The chat program is some sort of
Java Applet. It gives you a list of the ujeni members in the chatroom and
you can carry on private chat with individuals in the room. Sometimes the
program crashes or locks up, and you have to hit your reload button. So far
I haven't been successful in getting anyone to chat. If you go at a random
time, chances are that no one will be in there. I suggest we announce a
time in advance and plug the hell out of it.
5. The chat program itself has a large area of the screen where messages
show up from those in the chatroom. Below this area is a white box where
you type your message and hit 'send'. You have control of the color and
other aspects of your message with the menus below the text box. On the
right you see a list of who is in the room.
