    I've not been involved in that but I'll have a go and see if it works for me, don't hold your breath though...

    Yeah it looks like it's duff for all!

    If you wish to chat you could PM them and agree an alternate media for now.

    EDIT:


    THere was a thread on this sometime ago, I'll see if I can find the answer fo you.

    The Chat works, nobody appears to ever use it. I've left it in place as it's not really hurting anything. Once in a while I'll log in to see if anyone else is there.
    Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name

    Go to the Java website and download the update. It should work after that, but nobody ever goes on.....

    It's actually just an IRC client. So if you want to really know the down and dirty Google IRC commands.

    What browzer are you using? Opera gives some problems with some web2 sites and when loading Java applets are involved, in which case I switch to Internet Explorer. Firefox might be ok too.

    no, it's definitely the JVM

    works OK at home using IE6 and FF1, doesn't at work using same browsers (both XP)

    when i have some spare time i'll try out sv's download

    Might it be a firewall issue with your company IT set up.

    Yes I agree Ophiolite. I get a security warning everytime I access the live chat so i'd say that that is 99% the reason it won't open at work.

    download worked ok - at least now i can see the applet's content

    one problem remaining though :

    Unable to connect : java.net.ConnectException : Connection timed out: connect

    but that's probably another story (probably firewall related)

    I use Sun's Java.

    http://java.com/en/

    It should work better then MS's stuff.

    Unable to connect sounds like a firewall issue. It is IRC and many places don't take kindly to IRC.

    I resolve to be in live chat whenever I am reading the forum and remember to enter chat, or whenever I am not reading the forum and forget to exit chat.
