    I am sure many of you won't make it to the game tomorrow like me so I was thinking we could all get in the chat room try that out a bit. I will be in there and I encourage anyone who is around to join me. The link is at the top bar right between the Calendar and the Arcade (which many of you know). I hope we can get some good discussions going (Who is gonna win the QB battle? Zwith? Smick?). I am sure we can give some real-time updates whiel we are in there as well for all you OOSers.

    That's cool. I've been wanting to give the chat a try sometime, but there's never been anybody in there when I've thought to check it. If I'm around my computer then, I'll be sure to stop in. I'll likely end up at the bar though, cursing the next dumb move the Browns make in the draft.:hatepc: With any luck, they'll have ONN or Channel 10 on a few of the TVs there.
  3. Try wbns 10tv or ONN tv coverage, you cant really "watch" players on tv, but you can get a feel for the game

    It wouldn't let me connect either. I hope it works come this fall. I am sure it would be used on game days.

    It let me right in...

    What happened for those of you who couldn't connect?

    If not today, we'll still have to 'stress test' the chat before the season. I want it there when we need it.

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand.

    let me in right away too without any problems.

    It said "failed to connect to: (can't remember web address)".

    The next line said "Try another server".

    Hmm, I'll have to figure out a way to have it try other servers.

    I'll also link to the back-up HTML-based chat interface we have from the chat pages.

    And finally, anyone with Mirc (or any other true IRC program) can connect directly to the server.

    Glad we tried this today though. I'd rather try and figure out how to make it better now than once the season starts.

    It kept telling me the host is trying to reconnect. Not sure what that means but my status always remainded as dissconnected. Each time I tried to hit the connect button it said the host was trying to reconnected.
