question?

Posted on 09/18/2005 1:39:39 AM PDT by wallace144

Is there any real-time chat place for FReepers-like Mirc or Yahoo or anything?

freerepublic2 is a yahoo group dedicated to FreeRepublic, but rarely do people gather there to chat.

We're not a chat, but an active forum:
www.waronterror.ws

Many familiar and like minded folk there.
Mostly military.

Thanks for the info. It's a shame there's no dedicated live chat channel. I wonder why that is.

live threads & F5 is the closet thing I know of. as far as "live chat" though, I don't know of anything.

FR used to have a chat room, which split several times and is no more, that I know of. And then, There was the ALLEY, but that blew up even before the chat rooms went bust.

Yes it was! :-)

I had a different nic in the FR chat room, so you may not recognize me, but I was there.

I have yahoo. haven't used Mirc in years. the biggest problem I could see with live chat would be keeping trolls & other disruptors at bay. I'd imagine it would be a mod's nightmare.

I usually don't chat online much, but when i do want to chat, I'm always looking for like-minded people. I like to separate the wheat from the chaff so to speak. And as for trolls, its always fun to watch them get torn apart by FReepers- or anyone with an IQ above 23.

It is still a contingency site when FR goes down I believe. Back then, before JR got the new servers FR would crash frequently. It was more like a bar room atmosphere, music and all sometimes if you had mic and speakers, nothing serious, just a meeting place where Freepers would go waiting for FR to get back on line.

Sounds like fun. Just what I was asking about. Throw some topless women in there and I'd never leave the house. Just kidding.

Back 4-5 years ago there was a different attitude here, not like today. We have lost some very good people since then, some by passing on and other doing the opus thing or getting banned.Trolls were not a problem back then, we only had 2 or three maybe a month. The yahoo site was a gathering place to have fun, no rules, just right.

What's doing the opus thing? I've been a lurker for a long time, even went to the impeachment rally in DC on Halloween 1998, but still never heard of the opus thing or the chat room.

Upon re-reading my post, it sounds like I was being crappy, I hope that is not the way it came across because I did not mean it to sound that way.

When a Freeper writes his opus when they voluntarily leave as a poster on FR. Just type in opus in the search option as a key word and you will understand.

Oh. I guess I never saw one of thoses before. I did take a break from lurking for a while. And I have seen the cartoon character Opus here before but I guess i thought it was a joke. On my post 23 I should have used a question mark. WHen you can't hear inflections and tones like speaking, I think it's easy to not understand. It was not meant to be offensive but more of a question.

The chat room wouldn't even have to be all about politics 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Or at least not directly, it could be about movies or day to day stuff. That's what I was looking for when I asked.

Free Dominion has also offered to be a contingency site... what has happened to Free Dominion?

Still going strong-when FR is slow or down, I hang out here:


Guest Room for Freepers

nopardons, I'm having a senior moment-- I swear, the last time FR was down- some time ago- I found a link to live chat, but I'll be dogged if I can remember where or what it was... something like "freerepublic radio?"

All I remember is it allowed only a set number of people to log in at a time, so people kept coming & going to make room for others.

There is an FR IRC server available:

Please the the Profile Page of FReeper Neil E. Wright

One server is online now (24/7/365) and hopefully another will be online in the next couple of months.

Here ya' go .... for your GF ... allow me to introduce my VKs ... :)


SILLY, Viking Kitty! As you can see from the pics she is a well qualified Viking Kitty. She eats jerky and "tries" to drink my beer, she's ornery, headstrong, and generally a pain in the butt!!! (Particularly when she's in heat and I won't let her outside!!!!) LOL

Silly - The Viking Kitty

In this photo we see Silly at the door when I say "Disruptor"
Silly immediately takes up her position on the desk and contemplates the "ZOT" button
Here, Silly decides that the "ZOT" is in order, and she reaches for the "ZOT" button
Here, Silly advises me of a successful "ZOT" operation.
(click on each image to view a larger pic)

And, while I'm here, let me introduce the VK Division to BooBoo, Silly's trainee and new sidekick.

I have MSN messenger. But a chat feature for the website itself would be awesome.
