Here goes...

We have decided to set up a chat room for use by readers of this forum. It has been set up, and currently the discussion is on a set time each week when most people are going to be there, which seems to be 6-8pm on a Sunday currently, although it will be used throughout the week.

If you are interested, Keith, you'll need an IRC client (programme to connect to the server so that you can go into the chat room), and we recommend mIRC. Once you've got it installed, run it (bet you couldn't figure that bit out on your own). If a dialog pops up about the software, author etc, close it. Then you'll be left with the main window open, with an options dialog with some rubbish about servers. Fill in the name, email address (those dont have to be truthful) nickname and alternative nickname fields (nicknames need to be all one word, for example "Keith Hart" wouldnt be valid in the nickname bit). Once that's all done, click ok. Then in the small text area at the bottom, type "/server irc.diveservices.co.uk" and once the text stops scrolling, type "/join #RIBnet". Then talk away!

Matt

Decided as it's weekend once again to bring this back up top. Didn't have an exactly awe inspiring turnout last week, but a few did actually turn up so there was at least SOME interest. We figured turnout may have been low due to people having to deal with the storms or whatever, but then it could also be that you just don't care

If you want to come along this week, then do so! We're open all week, but main time will be (for now anyway) 6-8pm Sundays. Come along and get chatting!

Better Late than Never :)

I may be a bit late but have you considered Paltalk??

www.paltalk.com

is free and a room can be opened for chat. It also supports video conferencing.

Have a think about it

So far the few that have got onto IRC have seemed to like it.
Also Manos, I noticed that you joined the channel, but I was out on my mountain bike at the time, hence why you got no reply. Just got in now and noticed that you went in, so sorry about that. Maybe you could pop in again later.

Will do. The room looks OK. Have no probs with using it. I just made a suggestion. That's all.
I'll try to pop in tonight. We are staying in my son plays squash for the county tommorrow so early night tonight.

John, any chance of getting a web based client up on RIBnet? I'm guessing that the RIBnet website has CGI enabled? If so the best bet would be CGI IRC, and it'd mean that some of the people here who don't get along with computers as well as others could join in too. Maybe even Keith could drop in!
