Well somehow, despite being logged in as TPOTH, i connected to the chat under the yuggoth username (which isn't mine). We're having some weird stuff with the system... (like auto-login not working either), nothing wrong with the forum, just the way IT works in NZ i s'ppose
Tried connecting again to the chat a minute ago and this time, everything went fine (logged as TPOTH etc).... *baffled by technology*
Very nice! Everything worked out smoothly for me, minus the fact that there was no one there. Cool, hopefully I'll be able to wrestle more conversation out of a few people instead of the bi-monthly e-mail.
