<s>It's Open -- Check out the News Page
for more details. The Chat Room can be found in a button up by the top of almost any page on rideguy.com.
I decided that for as much as it's going to get beat on, and how much I charge for access to my site, I might as well get a free one on a managed server for now. Everyone wants it, and it seems to run ok. There's information coming soon on how people can donate to remove the advertising, popups, etc from it by donating to rideguy.com for the site management. I don't have that part setup yet, but it will be in place before I leave for the summer. </s>[-- EDITED 03.13.2004 -- 04.30PM CST(GMT-0600) --]
The above information is no longer valid. Details can be found further down in the thread. Sorry for the inconvenience.[-- EDITED 03.13.2004 -- 04.30PM CST(GMT-0600) --]
For what it's worth, I will usually announce when I'll be in the chatroom (including during group meetings there by people here or wherever). This way I have some verification in case someone tries to impersonate me there because there is no 'login' means... Sorry.
Anyways -- there it is -- Tear it up. It won't affect rideguy.com's servers because it is an outsourced chat system.
Don't forget -- we do have a new links database up there as well, and it needs links submitted -- still looking for more webshots galleries and other things.
