    not sure if this is my firewall - have used chat before.... in the evening (GMT)... now daytime, so have VPN in place where company I work for insists in RAPTOR firewalling - and chat gives this screen.... (attached)

    Or is it something else? (I did try both my NTFS password and the relevant VPN, but java was not happy and I had to back off...) so no chat for me, just forum! :rolleyes:

    It's your or your firewall, I'm able to login with no problem. Although [e]-Punk needs to change the font color from white to something darker

    Thanks

    Yeah - I kinda knew, just thought I'd run it by you - and hey yes indeed (should EP read this) I agree with you Jewellz... font/colour needs to be made happier for chat!

    Not that it needs to be happier, white font on a white background it's quite difficult to read :)

    HMMmmmm

    Isn't there an Nvidia option for that? :rolleyes: ;)

    Anyways - I get white on grey... it couldn;t be the theme setting you have could it? (I take defaults)

    I have faith in EP - and I also believe (if he wanted to) he could give us a happy, sad, angry, etc, other, etc font for chat .... HMMMmmmm is that an idea? Should I patent it like MS are trying to patent the "thingummy is typing a reply" technology!

    *thinks*

    Nawwww - you're all welcome to my ideas, make of them what you will!

    Npt sure why you would get a white background and white text.
    I can only presume this is a problem with jpilot and I will look into it..

    Can you connect with mirc?

    actually it is not at work - I just put the firewall up when working from home.... or rather the company puts it up on the network I VPN to...
