Several of you have expressd an interest in getting the chats going again. Since I did it before, I would be happy to get it going again. I though I would ask what are the best days and times for everyone. We will start with just general chats. If the interest is there, we can try topic specific chats later one.

So, what's good for everyone?

Also, has anyone ever used the chat feature on BU? We always used yahoo before cause some people couldn't use the BU chat.

haven't tried the feature here recently.

As far as times - normally after 8CST is good for me - but once the baby's born who knows.

I was thinking Friday nights about 9PM CST. Saturdays are a possiblity, too. I simply can't promise anything during the week, but someone else could host it!

I used the chat function here before the redesign, but not since. I have some computer software issues that need to be addressed before I can chat. IE I need a new operating system. The company that makes my notebook went belly up and hasn't updated the software since 2007.

haven't used the chat feature since the redesign either, I think that would make it 16 hrs behind for me, I've been trying to figure this out, but it's too hot to think I'm sure I'm only 14hrs benind some of you guys but I can't remember who I'll figure it out when I'm cooler.

PM me the specs on your laptop and let me see if Rick has anything he can copy to send to you. He has access to alot of different things, so it can't hurt to ask!

I need a new computer so I can't chat right now. But dh said he is going to get me a laptop with our tax money so I can hide it from the kids. Once I get it all set then I will be ready to chat. Most nights are good for me.

Oh, Steve is going to put Bantu on it in a couple of months. He is waiting for the people on the Pepper Boards to work out the bugs. Bantu is free.

I have never tried the chat feature on here before. Since I have no access to internet outside of work. The best times for me are 9-5 mon-fri.
