    Instant Message

    Hey guys, do you notice that we are having "instant" conversations all the time... I mean, lots of times, we reply right away, so I think having an instant messaging feature will be perfect. We won't have to keep refreshing the page to see if the other person has reply yet when we know that the other person is online too.

    I don't know if it's a good idea...but I guess it's worth a try...

    so basically you are asking for a CBoard chat room? I think that has been brought up before, but it was turned down by pretty much everybody. That was back on the old Ultraboard I think...

    Since you can already choose to use one or more of

    ICQ Number:

    AOL Instant Messenger Handle:

    Yahoo Messenger Handle:

    In your profile. I would imagine that this would be sufficient.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Nono, I mean an instant messaging service like MSN and all that, except it's on this board.

    I guess you are right...

    This board has more toys than the old board. Never know what could be added in the future, but it should probably stay like this for a while. This board is relatively new.

    it is indeed quite young... imagine how it's changed though... i'm for a C Boards exclusive instant messaging system... i know many of us have AIM or ICQ, but the point of having one here would be that it's exclusive to this board... so we can all talk about programming [other] stuff live... it would help us much better... plus it'd be fun...

    I think that would consume a lot of bandwidth, but nice idea though.

    Michelle, is that a rock your bunny's hiding behind. It looks
    like it's doing something illegal back there.
