( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi, so it's 23h00 my time, I'm waiting for my SQL server to respond & I decide to check the chatterbox out ... after reading afew post about different clients, I finally stumble across fullpage chat in this post: Re: Re: What other clients exist for the chatterbox?

Doing a search on "chatterbox" and "client" returned quite a few posts, but most of them were rather old, and the newer ones never offered much in the way of what is CURRENTLY available. The Chatterbox Information is rather old as well.

Trying out the different clients available for download seems to end up with connection problems every time (I'm behind a very strict firewall). So, I'd like to use fullpage chat as my default client, and this is where my questions/suggestions come in.

1.) How come is it so hard to find? ... I was LOOKING and only found it by accident. Is there some thing I'm missing?

2.) Couldn't a link be added to the bottom of the Frontpage Chatterbox Nodelet for relative newbies like myself to find it with ease?

3.) The Client itself is very easy to use, my one request (so far) is, Is it not possible to let the client keep track of the messages passing through (? logfile, perhaps ?), instead of wiping out the messages every refresh?

So Long
