Rob, on one hand the divorce thing would let you spend more time on your fish, but on the other, divorce is an expensive mater, hence less to spend on fish, Hmmmmm mmight require some thinking, Decisions, decisions :P

Oops my Mrs was looking over my shoulder while I was posting on this thread. Lucky she's got a good sense of humour, well she has to because she married me.

Dan now we know another of your past times, you better watch out that stuff makes you go blind. I had to give up a while ago when I found out that my eyesight was down to 80%. :mrgreen:

The boss at BP Forum tried a Chat room and to be honest i dont think its been succesful. I much prefere useing NSN or Aim if i want to chat to members there. Saying that at TFK They have a Shout Box which is far better, JMO.

There is an integral chat script that's easy to configure to work with the phpBB. It utilizes the members log ins from the database for the board. You can see it in use at Planet Catfish and at my site, if you need to test drive it. You're also more than welcome to use my chat if you need to and can't get one configured here. We are usually only there in the evenings a few nights a week anyway. Hope that helps! Yell if you need a link to more information for it.

Barbie,

I have looked for a Chat Room modification for the forum, but with no joy.

If you can send me a link to forumadmin@simplenet.co.uk I will add it on.

Thanks

This is the forum page for it:

It's worked well for us. Tim modded a few of the colors and what not a bit.
