New Chat added to forum

Postby jlubin » Thu Feb 18, 2010 10:14 pm

We added a new real-time chat to the forum. To open chat in a pop-up window click "Chat" on the top menu, see the highlight here:

Login with the same username and password you use in this forum.

I am having trouble adding the notice of who is in chat. It keeps crashing the forum when I try to add the codes to the file.

If people want to meet to chat perhaps you can post a message in this topic with a time, including time zone, when you want to meet.

Jim, once again you are so clever. I like this idea very much.

A great big Thank You!! I'm sure a bunch of us will be giving it a try in the next couple of days.

Marieke deserves the thank you. She found it. I like this one much better than the old one I had setup.

Thanks for the recognition Jim :)
I found it through another board I belong to who added this chat and I asked them where they got it and if it was easy to install.
So a thank you to UBPN.org too :) LOL

We should try to organize times when we are available to chat too :)

the sign (audio) comes to late, when I went to the window with the chat, the person had left already.....

The chat link at the top now shows how many people are currently online in chat. So if you want to chat, click the "Chat" link and a separate window will open the chat box. The chat number will be updated. If others see that someone is there they might be more likely to enter chat.

I am interested in knowing if degenerative arthritis is causing my height reduction or is it from the TM at T10. I was paralysed within 15 minutes but was lucky to have had a doctor at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit who diagnosed it with an MIR within a 24 hour period. However, I am loosing my height from 2000 until now from 5' 31/2 to 4' 11 in 10 years. I was wondering if any one else has noticed this problem of joints collapsing.
Thank you for the new chat room. It's a great addition to our TM Meetings here in Michigan with Lynne.
