About workshop start times (TimeZones)
The Workshop start times have been a real complicated issue with all the timezones around the world. To make it easier on me, Workshop times will be stated in Eastern Standard Time (EST) or Eastern Daylight time (EDT). If you live somewhere else you will have to figure out what time that is in your local area. Wikipedia link on timezones
How to Use the Chat Interface:
|In the nickname field enter a unique nickname up to 8 characters. Select your country, then press the 'enter' button.|
|You must grant permission when the applet permission window shows up. If you answer 'no' by mistake you will get a blank screen. To clear the 'no' from the browser memory, you must close all your browser windows. Then reopen your browser and go to the chat page. When the popup appears answer yes this time.|
Advanced Screen (manual connection):
If you need to there is an advance configuration screen where you can the server port and addresses manually (only recommneded for advanced users) Press the configuration button on the bottom of the chat screen (image above).
Troubleshooting / Chat Errors
Nothing hapens when you press the enter buttton:
Do you have a popup blocker installed on your machine? If so you will have to set it to allow popups for this site and or if that does not work try turning it off completely. You can turn it back on after the chat window loads.
If all you get is a blank screen and no pop-up permission window shows, then make sure you have Java enabled in your browser preferences. Also you need to be using the later versions of your browser. The chat applet works with all later versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netsape. Other browsers may work but have not been tested.
Java Script Error or blank screen!:
On some browsers, AOL and browsers older than IE 5 and Netscape 4.5, there is a java script bug. You will have to upgrade your browser in this case, or use irc software.
