I always wondered why there's no chat included in the forums instead of going to the IRC channel.
Embedded IRC? Is that a thing?

Well, we've had all that embedded stuff before.. While it was fine, the ident was returning kiwiirc and such which is often banned by a lot of servers. We currently use EFnet, and Choopa.net and others often ban kiwiirc which is an embedded client. I just experimented, and got "Error Connecting (Closing Link: unknownnetwork-a.clients.kiwiirc.com (*** Banned ))" - I tried both SSL and regular mode. Would have been nice to have an embedded SSL-enabled efnet client but so far it hasn't worked out... There might be a server or two that doesn't ban, we'll have to experiment some more on what to do in the future as far as chats.. I've been on EFnet/IRC for 20 years, sort of hard to leave it. ;)

I've added an embedded client for now for testing, it is located at the bottom of the Chat page HERE.

All you have to do is choose a nickname, and click start. Can't be simpler than that.

If you need to change the server (due to country restrictions, or other problems), you can find a list of them HERE.

It doesn't work for me on Win10 Home, using Chrome 61.0.3163.100 (but I'm under incognito mode, all plugins enabled).

Our next scheduled chat will be NEXT Friday, January 19th at 9PM EST.

We want to send out our next mass-mail / letter to our membership before then, to see what we can dig out of the dirt. ;)
