I can't seem to get connected to the chat room. I have Java installed on my computer and I have enabled it for all my browsers, but none of them work.

I'm taking a class on August 7, 2005 and would really like to get this resolved. Has anyone else experienced problems with Java? When I got to the page for the chat, I get the coffee cup, but nothing happens.

Please help me!

Thanks.

After installing java did you restart your computer? Which browser are you using?

I seem to be connecting to the chat room but I'm stumped when I get there. If I click on the Rooms tab, I see "Pattern Review", "Build a Better Skirt", and "Expert Chat" with the latter two being locked. If I click on Users under Pattern Review, I see my user name but none others because no one is in the chat room I presume.

Should I be seeing the one for Dress Forms and Pants Forms too? Will this be locked too, with some kind of password?

Yeah! I went away for a couple of days and now the chat seems to be working. I'm so relieved. I just hope it is still working in a week when I need it.

Thanks Deepika for whatever you did.

I create the rooms a few days before the chat is due. Otherwise it looks cluttered. You can see both dressform and pants form rooms now.

I was able to access your chat room without a problem once before- when Sandra Betzina was the guest some months ago. but don't remember how . I missed my Flip and


Stitch 1st chat tonight because I was unable to get in. I clicked on "rooms", then double clicked on the class and got a dialogue box with a "connect" button in it, but when asked for the password, the box would not register my typing at all, and after several attempts with no results, it gave me a message that there was already someone else on with my "name",Lady Di. I am using a Mac, browsers are Safari and Firefox (the one I tried tonight), and I do have Java installed and as far as I can tell, enabled ( definitely not a techie).
I would so appreciate some help so I can do the next chat class.
Thank you Deepika,
Dianne R.

ThinkGeek: "E-mail has been around since before computers. At first, e-mails were written on rocks and thrown at neighbors. CC-ing a rock e-mail could be dangerous for an entire village. Then, e-mails were written on paper and put in weird paper things called envelopes and the postal system delivered them. This was slow. Finally, e-mail as we know it came around."
