    Exactly! Err not quite exactly, a few nits ;-) I would do:
    <HTML> <FRAMESET ROWS="150,*"> <FRAME SRC="index.pl?node=ad_and_talk&displaytype=raw" MARGINWIDTH +=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 SCROLLING=NO NORESIZE> <FRAMESET COLS="80%,20%"> <FRAMESET ROWS="*,100,50"> <FRAME SRC="index.pl?node=showchatmessages&displaytype=raw +"> <FRAME SRC="index.pl?node=showprivatemessages&displaytype= +raw&type=superdoc"> <FRAME SRC="index.pl?node=talk+links&displaytype=raw"> </FRAMESET> <FRAME SRC="index.pl?node=showotherusers&displaytype=raw"> </FRAMESET> </FRAMESET> </HTML>
    Other than that I would just suggest:
    • Not doing the frameset for showother users if they have the users nodelet disabled
      UPDATE: Actually just make this optional. I guess I'd rather have the user list show up here and *not* on the main pages...
    • Reversing the order of messages in showchatmessages
    • Configurable refresh(for each refreshing section? or global?) 30 sec is a touch high and makes it a little hard to read large/concurrent messages. It also might incur to much server load?
    UPDATE: I've also run into a weird bug. After a few reloads of an empty privatemessage frame the frame changes to an embedded chatter (as in the whole frameset)
      See http://pthbb.org/cb/ for an example of most of this (maybe more as I get around to it) implemented. For the paranoid (if not you should be! ;-) You can view the source for http://pthbb.org/cb/blather.php3 via a symlink at http://pthbb.org/cb/blather.

      Yes yes PHP, oh the horror. But frankly I'm not doing any heavy lifting and it's a pip-squeak box (Pentium 120 with 128M running more a few choice daemons)

      Anyways I plan on using this (at least until/if ever) the equivalent is officially sanctioned, been using fullpage chat

      PS> It seems the adfu in the original framed chat node broke in the last few days since this thread began....
