Default Problems with Chat

We have noticed that some people are having trouble getting the chat room. Let's start off with this question. What browser are you using and what version is it? Please only list this and then we will go on to some other questions. OSO

Default Never

I've never been able to get in. Each new time I try, it asks me to load the software, I click yes, loads it (supposedly), then it tries 3 times to "connect" and fails. I'm using Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 under Windows 2000.

Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6.0. I do not even see an icon for a chat room. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Just type away. It shows up in the black line under the messages. Then hit enter.
Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they
bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

Windows 98.
80% of the time I get right in, the other 20% it says "connecting to washington dc" & some numbers.
Then...."disconnecting, invalid server"

Internet Explorer 6
Says I am unregistered. when I click on the "enter Chat" I get this message.
"You are not registered or not logged in! To register please see the register link in the main window. To login please fill in your username and password in the main window."

There is no where to fill in anything.
The other day I use to be able to go to where it looked like it was going to work but all that came up was that it was trying to connect to Washington but was unsucessful.

Got in before but every time I posted a reply a little comment about not being registered popped up. Last night I couldn't get in at all.
