You know, I have no idea. I never took to it so I never paid attention. I have been under the impression, though, that for some time now it's hardly used any more, if ever. I expect Twitter and Facebook would have taken care of that gig.

Chat users raise your hands...

Works fine for me. I got on there a couple of times in the past 3 months, and someone else was on there. In fact, I just now logged on, and another person is on there.

Though, yes, I rarely ever try to log onto it. Usually a couple times per year, or so.. Agreed, is a bit more obsolete now with Facebook and whatnot..

I wasn't aware of that Live chat until today.. now I see a link at the top of the forum. Trying now.. OK I'm alone in there, it looks like the channel was re-created when I entered (as it would, if it's been some time since it was in use).

Now that you mention it, I'm not entirely sure, myself.

Not been on the fora for some time but am in the chat just about every night from 8 to midnight Pacific time plus or minus. Usually there by myself except for a bot.

I'm enjoying imagining your conversations:
Alan: "Oh bot, I have nobody to talk to but you. No one to share my sorrows with but you."
Not-A-Bot: "Yeah, well. I am glad you still come to the chat."
Alan "I'm glad you are always here too."

Just tried it. I think there's one other person in there. It's a bit awkward though, isn't it?

Thinking about it, I think the issue is that, unless people are constantly going in there, every new person going in there is initially on their own. And then they won't stay (as I haven't) because there's no-one to talk to. So there's no-one in there, because everyone who goes in comes back out etc.

Maybe it needs more ambience? Free drinks, muzac, comfy chairs.....

Just did a search for facebook... but mistyped and searched for 'faece' . Oddly enough the first half dozen hits were for facebook. From now on I will think of it as faecebook. When I think of it at all.
