It turns out that operating a non-java chat room such as the one we have been using is against the web host's rules. It also turns out that the high end java chat software the web host had available is no longer. So, we have to switch to the mid level software that they are currently supplying. The link to the new chat room is not in the navigation bar but under it as [BEB CHAT]. It is fairly intuitive. The meaning of an icon shows in the lower right corner of the window when you mouse over it. Don't forget to logout (icon of a person going through a door) when you wish to leave the chat room.

IIRC I was not asked for a password when I logged in to the chat room. Does that mean that anyone can participate? Or has the software somehow remembered me? Since you are allowed to sign on as guest, it seems to me not to be password protected. I guess this is okay, I just wondered about it.

The new chat room is completely unregulated. The only reason the previous one required login was because it was driven by the same perl script as the BB. As I mentioned before, this mid range chat software is what is included with our web hosting package. If we want sophisticated software which allows registration and blocking of troublemakers, we would have to persuade the Foundation to ante up $595. I could not justify the request unless we had consistently high use and significant problems.

Thanks for the clarification. I figured that was the case and I do understand the rationale. Thanks again, Bob, for all you do for us.

Your mailbox is still reporting as full. Re your problem:

Try installing the java run-time environment rather than the Netscape plug-in

http://java.sun.com/j2se/ (J2SE 1.4.2)

What O/S and version of Netscape are you using?
