    Anybody up for the old-fashioned cans and strings network?

      Or even the new and not so improved mchattk based on shendal's, It's straight Perl/Tk.

    I use my home-brewed (very alfa right now) Win32::Console based Chatterbox client because I can't live without Corions eConsole. :)

    For fellow Perl users then Chatterbox for me

    For all other users, through a lawyer.

    To be totally honest, Chatterbox is the only tool I have tried so far. I suppose then that votes such as mine really aren't a fair measure of what monks prefer. :-)

    every time I try telepathically .. the wires get crossed and I wind up receiving some monks spanking fantasy about Bill Gates.
    from now on it's chatterbox only !

    I voted for Java Chatterbox, even though I currently use the HTML-based on here more. "Why?", you ask. (Ask now, darnit.)
    Because I use it on www.Everything2.com, where the chatterbox is busier. Just you all wait until PerlMonks gets as talkative as E2... the auto-updating clients will become more and more attractive.
    (my problem with TP is that I broadcast to too many people)

    I voted for "Console-based PM-chat" because that's what I've been using (the plain text client that comes with my module). I had not seen of the existence of ase's mchattk, and in fact I had been thinking of writing a Tk interface. I will certainly take a look at it and maybe switch.

    I must say it's very gratifying to see all those people using my module. I'm flattered :-)

    posted the day after my birthday! I had to vote, even if it was an old node.
