    Yeah.. can be added. But we need to be little a bit slow. Need to think before we write. I'm not sure if I explained it clearly.

    Here we are doing fine. And always MSN and Yahoo is open. Many of us are always on the net in MSN/Yahoo. If we need we can chat.

    Well i am not talking about chattin on irc or stuff.. It is just tat it is difficult to talk with the members here.. Not all use a messenger.. Even a room on the IRC network would be fine.. k

    ok lets see what the votes will tell..

    i launched a programming chat room last year, the problems are the different time zones of the people in the board menaing mainly the same people are in at the same times and the discussions never actually stay on the topic of programming, the idea is great in theory but i just dont think it works that well.

    a chat room's not a bad idea. i suggested it to the webmaster, and he said no, more or less. (although the idea was incorporating a chat room into the contest web page, so he might have a different opinion...)

    i'm keeping my opinion out of this one. i have no strong feelings either way.

    its much easier on a board too, because you can format code etc. in a chat room, it kinda has to be done quickly, whereas here you can think it out and then post

    know what i mean?

    Not a bad idea.
    Code:
    bool flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() < 0;
    }

    there is no point. why could u go to a chatroom and suposivly talk about programming. it would be difficult to say like. i need helkpw ith this code and then copy+paste a huge line of crap. plus the boards are alrwayd a tad slow. the chat could copletely make them go slower then the US postal service.

    I say 'No'! The very basic idea of this board is knowlege sharing with everyone, with chat rooms around, only a few would be benefited, while others won't.
