every time i go on the chat, I see about 10 people listed and only 2 talking.

And the two that are talking don't really care for other people coming alone, they just carry on chatting.

might just me me though, when i go on everyone stops redface

As always, #fxhome is usually filled with the regulars who leave their computer 'idling' all day, occasionally checking in on things. So if you ever come in and there's a room full of people not talking, that's why. They aren't ignoring you. biggrin But that's partly the reason I created #chitchat, it's a place for those who DO want to talk to go in and have fun. We still want you in #fxhome, but if your looking for more of a talkative place, try #chitchat wink

i just downloaded the newest Java thing over at http://java.sun.com/getjava/index.html
that works for me...
how long are you waiting for? it could take (im guessing cause i have dsl) up to about 10 minutes...ish. i would say just let it sit there for a while and then a big window will pop up and have like 3 lines of blue words... then wait for a while more and it should start up...

hehehe ( glad you asked, it's a bit of self publicity )

vega70 is a memeber of fxhome, that's what happened when the poor guy came along to star in my new film.

Anyone else wants to star in it, will get the same. wink

( edit, he's not really dead, only in the film )

Speaking of that (don't want to get too off-topic) I spoke to a few people who partcipated in filming with you, and they all said it was loads of fun. Do you have any pictures to post? biggrin

Not trying to get off topic, but it was about chatting smile

I haven't had chance to talk to all the people that turned up last thursday but i'm glad they had fun, although it was one of the hottest days England had ever seen sad
I think csb might do a spotlight on the film and i'll give still's then if that's ok.
there is a small screen shot on here http://mysite.freeserve.com/starship_troopers
in the screen shot section, it's not had the color correction treatment yet.
also the teaser trailer is there incase you missed it. ( just click on the download movie button )
Thanks for the interest smile I like to call this one the fxhome movie due to all the help I'm getting smile

For people having trouble using the java client, u may want to use another program to run the irc chat room...

I personally use mirc, http://www.mirc.com

It is very good, i am unsure as to what irc programs r useful on mac, but i know mirc doesn't work, i hear "snak" is quite good, but i am not sure...

Hope this helps out, do searchs for "irc clients" if u have trouble with mirc or if u r on mac...

well one problem i had was i had a firewall blocking my acess, but then i got mirc and it works after a bit of tweaking. if you have a firewall running when you are trying to join chat and it's not working, close the firewall and then try again.
