Don't forget guys to stop by for the draft chat in Primetime. I'm not sure what my schedule is going to be like on Thursday night, but I'm planning at least to get things started at least an hour before the draft at around 6:30 PM EST. Feel free to drop by earlier if you wish.

I don't know if this motivate people to come or scare people off, but I will be in the chat for the nationally broadcast game of the Pats against the Falcons. It should be a good one. Hopefully we get a decent amount of people and will have a good chat. As usual, I will bring my knowledge and humor to the chat.

Big ups to the chat last week. Time to include people that were in the chat in this epic photo. Sadly Falcfans won't let me use this as my signature

Image

Roddy White- Me ( I always loved him and I made a similar face when the kick was going).
Jason Snelling- Wease ( Es car GO!!!!!!!!!!!)
Eric Weems- Pudge ( Somewhere Pudge is giggling.)
John Parker Wilson- FF 82 ( I think he also loves him the way Pudge does).
Coach raising his fist- Capo ( he is the guy who runs the chat).
William Moore- MF (Big part of the chat).
Shaun Scillinger- Lostone ( Great thoughts and nice surprise).

That's all I can find but last but not least.

Somewhere Michael Turner- Fun Gus ( X50 Slow!!!!!!!!! All Hail Turner).

Despite the awesome atmosphere at my friends house, I must say I missed the chat. It was probably one of the craziest chats and I would have loved to be yelling with you guys. I will be back next week, although for the playoff run most likely not. Nevertheless, next week I will be back!!

Now I have been telling people, I won't be in the chat anymore due to games being televised and me going out for games so I can drink and yell. But due to a devastating blizzard of over 2 feet of snow and heavy shoveling, I may be stuck in my house tonight. So guys thank the blizzard if I am in the chat tonight. I love the chat and yelling with you guys, but nothing beats watching games with friends in person. We will see what happens but right now it's 50/50..

Due to major televised games, the epic chat room will be missing me on big games since I can't watch big games in my house. Can I use my blackberry to get in the chat, I would like for that to happen if possible.

Does your blackberry support flash? Because that's the software the chat uses.

I will be in the chat for two to three quarters, so feel free to come in.

Last night's chat experienced some lagging issues. I thought it might have had something to do with the fact that my software was so out of date. The chat program that I have installed is version 4.7.12, while they have reached 6.0.8.

But then later on I remembered that there was a reason why oh so long ago, I never upgraded to version 5.x, because it was not stable. There were security issues, and thus installing that version would open up the board to hacking.

So I did some more research, and figured out the lagging issues had to do with the number of users being on at the same time. That's really something I cannot control. For whatever reason, the server this site was on last night was pretty busy, using up resources and leading to the lag.

Long story short, I cannot promise there will not continue to be lagging issues in future chats, and hopefully last night's issues are a one-time occurrence.

We could always use IRC. Easy as pie to set up and use. I'm pretty sure that PHPBB has an IRC add-in. Or you could use something like Mibbit. http://www.mibbit.com/

DalNet has an NFL channel. We could always register #falcfans

I installed a new AJAX based chat room: chat/

Give it a run if you want in the coming days before Sunday, and let me know about any bugs. I'm going to be out of town this weekend for a wedding, so I won't be able to troubleshoot after Thursday, so if any issues arise need to know about them in the next 24-48 hours.

Hopefully things go smoothly on Sunday for all the chatters.

It's still very laggy. The problem is that the web server is hosting it. If you use IRC as a host, the lag will go away. Just stick an IRC client on the website, set up the IRC client to connect to a specific server/channel, and you'll be good to go. It should all be free.

http://www.coolsmile.net/chat/download.php

http://www.pitr.net/darkerirc/

And again, if people have their own IRC client, they can connect directly without having to go through the website. (hmm, perhaps you shouldn't tell them that if you get ad revenue or something. heh.)

I'm aware of the potential server issues. But Flash Chat (the former software) was lagging with just 4 and 5 users. I should be able to get at least 3-5 times as many users before it consumes that many resources on the site's shared server. This is why I precipated a switch. If this does not alleviate some of the issues then I will turn to the IRC route.

Now I have the suspicion that a big part of it is the fact that I'm running an integrated chat via this board's mySQL database, which increases the server load. But since the chat rarely attracts more than 8-15 people, I'm hoping that i can still have an integrated program that won't kill the server with that few amount of people.

We'll see how it works out this weekend. Hopefully the lag won't exceed more than a few seconds and there will be no lost posts/messages.

Well, when you put up the new chat, I was seeing latency of about 10 seconds. Today, I'm seeing up to 30 seconds, and that's with me being completely alone in the chat room. I'm thinking that there's either a connectivity issue, or the server is already overloaded in terms of traffic.
