Subject: Re: [chairs] OASIS IRC
FYI - that chat that Paul is talking about is located at: http://soaphub.homeip.net/conf
Rooms are created as needed by simply giving a name on the main page.
Look under the help/? button to see its features - biggest reason we're using this over other things is because
1 - it doesn't require a special client
2 - works thru firewalls
3 - allows you to see that conversation that happens even when your disconnected due to bad networks
4 - manages a 'queue'

One of our TC members has written a chat application that we have been using in the absence of IRC. It works over port 80 via a web page. It has a queue management feature to help manage a "speakers queue". Its very neat.

It would be interesting if OASIS could configure their IRC server to allow connections on port 80. Many of us are behind restrictive firewalls with few ways to get through other than port 80. mIRC can proxy via a http proxy, but that disables most features of IRC beyond barebones chat.
