new chat software

It's been down since yesterday.  Although I believe it's an issue with Tinychat.  If you go to http://tinychat.com I can't load any of the chats.

Maybe this is a good time to upgrade to better chat software?  The character limit and frequent crashing make the current web chat somewhat of a pain at times.

I'd like to suggest http://mibbit.com/ as an alternative.  I'm sure there are others, but this one seemed pretty full featured and free.  

Thanks Turd as always for this site.

The chat software is currently working correctly as far as I can tell.

Will wait for tinychat to

Will wait for tinychat to come online again then, may be a regional issue

it hangs indefinitely on "loading"

(mibbit is nicer as it interfaces with real irc chat networks, so we can stay online 24/7 with our own clients)

still not working correctly

I'm still having issues.  Chrome won't work at all.  I've tried it on two different computers.  Firefox I was able to get in.  There was hardly anyone in the chat so I'm guessing it's still affecting some other people as well.  Hopefully it will work itself out soon.

I'm on Chrome right now and

I'm on Chrome right now and it's loading for me. I was able to get it to work in Firefox too.  Might want to check what version of Chrome you are running... may need to update it.  I am currently running version 15.0.874.120.  Another suggestion would be to clear our your browser cache and see if that possibly fixes the issue.

figured out

Thanks, I finally figured it out.  It was a Chrome Extension that was preventing me from getting in.  Once I disabled it, the chat loaded right back up.

it had always worked for me

it had always worked for me before,

it's still down for me since, its a tinychat issue, see more people report it over the years, maybe some networking or policy issues, will switch providers later this week incidentally, maybe it'll work then with a new ip.

tried 2 machines:

LFS / Seamonkey / flash 11.1 r102

Ubuntu / Firefox / flash 11.1 r102

Not sure zilverreiger...

Not sure zilverreiger... still working for me, I just tried accessing it 5 minutes ago and was able to launch the chat.  Do you know what versions of SeaMonkey and Firefox you're running?  Do you possibly have access to a Windows or OS X machine where you could just test that it is working there?

facebook

Turned out to be my facebook.com block in dns, I don't like them to know what sites or even areas within sites i visit.

But so be it.
