'Trouble Down Pit' now online!

Hi all,

After the IRC channel being hijacked by a hacker with a taste for infecting people's machines (as opposed to the 'real' definition of hackers who are people who enjoy exploring technology systems without intent of damage) it's now not recommended that people go there. You're more than welcome but on your own PC be it.

Instead we have a lovely spangly Yahoo chatroom to use, with the side bonus that you join up with my mailing-list at the same time.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/theotherside...ailinglist/chat (now with added functioning link goodness)

You can get to it from the front page by clicking on the mailing list link and navigating through the Yahoo site or you can use this link.

The moderators are currently myself, Debaser (the IRC moderator) and newly appointed Mr Fuzzy. For chat issues talk to them first (because they probably know more about what they're doing there than I do).

All the same rules from this forum apply in the chatroom, but there is a bit more give in that you can tailor what you are saying to those who are online. Be sensible and value communication.

Have fun all,

Mata

That'll teach me to copy and paste my links...

For some reason the board decided to shorten the link, despite the fact that the only letter it replaced was 'm' and it replaced it with '...' which is actually longer.

Hmmm.

m$, in their infinite wisdom, decided to stop bundling the java console with ie, so you gotta mess about with getting it yourself...

if it doesn't work, it's possible to access it through messenger, but it's a bit fiddly...

CovertYawn can't get into the Yahoo chat, he keeps saying something about their being a microsoft java link in front instead of the chat. Can anyone help the guy? LoLo and I have failed miserably. Also, it seems DI hasn't been in Matazone lately in IRC, so there are still a few chatters around there if anyone wonders where they went.

One option is not to use IE. Try downloading Opera - its a quick light browser with nice functions like auto refresh, and definitely has java with it. The download is approx. 12.5MB

Fairly big I know, but for most sites you would care to use it is quicker than IE, and should solve all your java problems.

You can find the free download here.

Also, you may need to switch java on in IE. Look under tools, internet options, advanced, and scroll down to Microsoft VM to find checkboxes to enable it.

Hope this helps.

I've just poked around, and here is a way for you to get the room into messenger proper...

Open notepad, then paste this in remembering to put your yahoo ID in where marked...

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Yahoo\Pager\profiles\YOUR YAHOO ID HERE\Chat\Favorite Rooms]
"0"="*g.theothersidemailinglist 0"

Save this file as othersideroom.reg, then right click and select 'merge'. You may need to restart messenger, but you should end up with a direct link to the room under 'Tools, Yahoo Chat, Favourite Rooms'

NB. This is altering your system registry. Do be carefull

Microsoft VM is now disabled by Sun Microsystems on IE 6.0, and they had to remove all Java products from Microsoft stuff.
