Due to a recent spate of virus' being forced on people through loopholes in the IRC channel do people think that we should move over onto the free chatroom that comes with my Yahoo mailing list? (You can get to it from the front page or by clicking here http://groups.yahoo.com/group/theotherside...ailinglist/chat but don't forget to vote first!)

Yahoo's good for me for now...

I doubt I'll be able to access it once school starts back up for me, though.

erm... I'm easy either way... but me main issue wi Yahoo is when people actually talk rather than type. I know it's fun ta hear people talkin an that, but the sad truth is that there is no way I can hear you talkie guys wi'out disturbin the missus... an until I can get somethin rigged up so I have headphones instead, it's gonna be awkward...

Mind, given I'm so infrequently in chat I s'pose it's not that big an issue... forget I said anythin...

It's looking pretty convincing so far...

I'll leave this poll overnight, if people could bump it occasionally so it gets maximum coverage I'd be grateful.

If it's still such a landslide for Yahoo tomorrow then I'll unpin the IRC chat message and put up a new one about the Yahoo group.

In a nutshell!

I really should hook up some headphones or summat, that'd avoid the "spousal interference" laugh.gif

It'll be a while before I can use a mic undetected though... sad.gif

well leo when we do those voice conferances anyways theres usually only one or two people actually talking and the rest are typing. Once you get more than 3 people it gets hard to talk without talking over the other. and if you have me the voice chat whore in the room its hard to get anyone to talk without tripping over them. lol

I forgot my point...oh well.

GWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAAA!!!

/me weeps tears with the funny...

I'm not fussed either way, to be honest - just so long as the chat facility is available to us. I can use Yahoo and mIRC with similar efficiency - they both boot me occasionally, but they usually run fine.

after rebuilding my computer there is no way im going to risk going into irc again. I still can't get my soundcard to work right now, but that has nothing to do with the issues there. So those of you sticking to irc, good luck to you. If you want to talk to me which you probably don't anymore, you can PM me, otherwise see some of you on yahoo.
