So I got some email a while back about this free and easy to use web-based chat room service…and heck, it’s so simple I thought I’d give it a whirl. Here’s a link to a Pharyngula chat room—try it out and let me know how it goes. I’ll plan on checking in myself now and then, but don’t wait up for me, talk among yourselves.
I will definitely plan on popping in at 8pm Central time tonight (Friday), if you really want to yell at me online. We’ll see how it goes; I don’t know how well it will hold up if ten people are trying to converse at once, and I also notice that there doesn’t seem to be any way to authenticate identities, so it’s not clear to me how much noise will be generated.
