    Hey Guys, I propose a channel on the IRC network so that we can have a "group" chat with all the guys on realjock.

    Please vote Yay or Nay for this idea!


    For those of you who knows how the IRC network works, please post some ideas on a name, and on which network we should create the channel.

    Cheers!

    "god does IRC still exist!"

    Ha! That was my reaction, too! I used to hang out on IRC, but that was, like, 10 years ago.

    As for RJ, there's no need for IRC. RJ has it's own browser-based chat system.

    hehe - IRC. I remember celebrating new years eve on IRC in 1991?

    Of course, even gay.com has been around for a long time... I seem to recall getting my first account on there in '96. Back when there were "floors"

    RJ has a chat feature. Never used IRC. Is it better than the chat here?

    IMO, the chat here is way better than IRC; RJ's chat has the video stuff built in, and it doesn't reveal info about the user's computer or IP address. IRC was the original real time chat system found on Unix systems, and it was open to a lot of annoying exploits because you could query the server and get the IP address of any user. Back in the Win95 days, it was common for gay bashers to join a gay IRC channel, lookup the IP addresses of the users in the channel, and then start sending them malformed packets designed to crash Win95 boxes. It got so bad that I would telnet into my unix shell account and use the shell account's IRC client in order to shield my PC from being nuked.

    The current chat on here can be a little buggy for me when entering text (using IE running Vista). Best way I can explain it is that there's sort of a latency issue when typing, the key strokes don't register unless I type REALLY slow, and then I sometimes have to double press keys. Make sense?

    Example:
    If I type the "realjock," the text enrty area will only have recognized "rljok" - like it was too busy to catch the other letters as I typed them.

    I'm gonna install Firefox to see if it's an IE issue.

    bearcub Rj is Real Jock. They are talking about the chat feature here on the site. Underneath topics, and above your name next to the site logo.

    joe it seems it's an IE issue, because I'm using firefox and vista. And while it's lagging a bit for the typing, it's not missing any letters at least.
