    Click the Chat link above, select either the small popup or the full page (I recommend the small). Let it load up, and see if it connects. I'm in there, and need to test it.

    The more, the merrier.

    And ignore BP_Coach, he's a bot, and he's playing a trivia game (feel free to participate) and I can't get him to shut up.

    Java Classes load (though one gets the "unsigned" step-child message from the Virtual Machine).

    Window develps - connection - null error as DCBuck reports

    Hmm, several people were able to get through. But "some" isn't good enough.

    Did you (those who got 'null') say no to the certificate?

    That's bizarre.

    If you see this, and want to check on that, go here;

    Does that crash you too?

    Clarity - I let the certificate load as un-signed.

    Does it need to be recognized as signed? (or another wrinkle - will this Java chat work best with a MS Java installation version - whatever number or higher is needed? Reason I ask I was running Sun's VM - that could complicate matters I guess.)

    I have the full console record if it'd help you.

    (Edit: The demo does work - and did explicitly demand acceptance of the certificate as a trusted download. Your pop-up chat did not go through this step, instead the certificate was "accepted" without signature. This happened again even after success in launching hte demo session).

    Actually, Sun's version should be better for it.

    I think you have to say 'yes' to that certificate. I'm looking into trying to circumvent that now.

    I'm not a big fan of java chat applets, which is why I wanted one that would plug into standard IRC so people with mIRC and such could connect directly. What we have is based on pjirc, which should be pretty basic.

    Actually yeah, saying "no" to the certificate gets a null. Hmm.
