The chat room software is in limbo. I had it working nicely, but found out that it was generating a huge amount of web traffic. Wasn't a big deal back when the site was hosted on my basement server...bits and bytes were pretty much free then.
The commercial host I use now has limits on how much traffic I can generate. It's a large limit, but the chat room feature creates huge amounts of back and forth traffic to the server. It eats up the bytes fast.
I'm trying to make it more efficient. When I do get the solution right, I think it will be more enjoyable than the old one. I am learning how to make it do more.
