    1. Sorry it doesn't work with iPads and iPhones as it needs Flash to work. I will be looking for alternatives that use HTML5

    2. It's is so annoying on an iPad when you can't see Flash content - even though Flash is suppose to be on the way out, it still seems to be everywhere!

    1. I'm beginning to think the same thing to be honest with you Tim. Whilst I can find ones that work with iPads, they come with 'issues' I will play around for a few more hours but I might bin the whole thing.

  4. Hey Steve, it works great with my computer but Im beginning to wonder that the new idea hasn't gone down too well. I use to love going into chat rooms and I like to chat in bingo chat rooms online so it was a good idea at the time. Thank you so much for trying it out though and I was honoured that you took my idea into account! I would love to join your Skype chats when you have them.

    Sarah :)

    1. Hi Sarah
      I will leave this one to run for a few more days, but I don't think it's very practical myself.
      Regards
      Steve

  5. I think this is a great idea, in theory. The actual details of this may not make it practical. And I agree with tim - there are many venues for us to chat already. However, I have also been in situations where I've had "planner emergencies" (in that I needed advice ASAP on something specific). For those times, or just if people want to have a real-time chat between "formal" Skype sessions, they could always use google hangout or something similar. A few of us did that a while back, and it worked very well. You can even do video chat with more than two people (I don't know what the limit is), but again that's repeating the Skype chats, so I don't know if that's even necessary. Just another option that wouldn't require more of Steve's time (who, by the way, does an excellent job of keeping everything running smoothly - thank you!).

    Just my two cents. :)

  6. Although I like the idea in principle - I do think Tim has a point. I tend to get a really good response to requests in the facvebook group as there are people in there almost 24/7. I would hate it to add to your workload Steve unless you were having fun with it yourself.

  7. Perhaps instead of live chat, there could be a comments page on this site. It wouldn't be "real time," but it would allow questions to be asked and answered.
