    how frequently does the chatbox log one out? and is it affected by the users activity?

    @Paleo, I have fixed the auto-logout thing.

    @Brandon, The ChatBox is not visible to guest visitors.

    As an active Member of TSF would it be possible to have Chat Box taken off my Home page?

    I find it distracting at times. I'm aware that I could ignore it completely, but that's not the point.

    If, say, on my home page, just an enlarged banner....THE ------SCIENCE------ FORUM-------TODAY------WELCOME------ WESTWIND.

    Then, if I wished to engage the Chat Box there could be a precedure to enable me to do so.

    Other Members may feel the same as I do and it may be interesting to ascertain the position within TSF Membership. westwind.

    There is already a feature to hide the chat box. a small upward pointing arrow in the far right of the blue bar above the chat box. click it and the box magically disappears.

    Thanks seagypsy. I like your new Avatar. Really. I do Art occassionally, and there's something there that appeals to me. As my Art expression is in the form of Expressionist Art, Nolde, Kadinski etc I'm happy with it.

    I'll have time to look in at what's happening on TSF, probably on a regular basis, but I feel, for the time I have left on this Mortal Coil, I'd better get on with some started but not finished projects.

    All the best seagypsy, go where your destiny takes you, but remember what I said. You have an Intellect just looking for the right stage to perform on. westwind. ( ken ).

    I love the chat box...it gives me the opportunity to talk with other members about non-important crap that doesn't deserve it's own thread.
    Fixin' shit that ain't broke.

    Dear MacGyver1968. You have been a good friend. Iread between the lines that your journey so far has had its share of problems and heart ache. At the same time you are not such a bad guy, and deserve green lights all the way. You help people where and when you can, you have talent as I mentioned before. Too much talent for you to take time out every day talking non-important crap on the Chatbox.

    You probably, like me, need some comfort by inter-acting with others where you feel comfortable. That's fine. Worked for me. Is it really working for you? Or will you keep dipping water from the well until this particular well is empty?

    You are relativly young MacGyver1968. Do not let disappointment and frustration steal years from you now that you are in your prime. I'm good at preaching to others MacGyver1968, not so good at taking my own advice, but then, I do not have your talent. If I did I would not have wasted it.

    Don't be angry with me MacGyver1968, as you know anger is bullshit and steals from you clear thinking and kindness.

    Look for me for awhile in July when my nights are longer. My wish is that you will be so busy you'll hardly have time to bother. bgood luck Mitch. westwind. ( ken ).

    Sometimes non important crap is pretty darned important. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Why assume that he is wasting his life? He does what he says he enjoys. he is no more wasting his life by being social in a chat box joking about nonsensical stuff than Picasso who spent his days slapping paint onto a canvas. Just because someone doesn't live their life the way YOU would prefer they do it, doesn't mean they are wasting their life. You may preach often but that doesn't mean you are good at it. And it is good that you don't take your own advice. Your advice to Mac, much like the advice you gave me in PM, is presumptuous and arrogant. Do you honestly think that from your little spot on the planet and in the limited view you have of an individual on the internet, that you have the wisdom and information needed to make such a huge judgement on the quality of another person's life or actions?

    Anger isn't the only source of bullshit or the only degradation to kindness. And anger is very valid sometimes. And kindness isn't always deserved.

    Late response ; But nice addition, it should be pretty fun, there must be a post cap on it though as it just became visible to me?

    yeah we recently had a problem with spammers attacking the chat box rather than the threads. since it is unusual for a site like this to even entertain a chat box, it was agreed that it should be restricted to people who have shown themselves to at the least tolerable level of civilized.
