I skipped right by this post of yours. Didn’t see it until this morning. There is a chat link in the Chat Forum. It is an old version of chat and acts flaky at times, but it is there. I do know that Netscape6 and the chat do not play well together. :D Good chat software is no where near cheap. The free chats have adds to put up with. Uncut’s Yahoo chat works well, but getting people to show up is the problem.
PS I also split your post off the NEW MEMBER thread.
