For all the bee junkies that need another outlet to talk bees, we now have a chat room open. Post your chat times and schedules here. Let us know of any problems you have and we'll see if we can help.
The chat room is here:
How do we chat in the chat room?
Dennis the chatterbox :> )
If you use this link it will take you to the chat room.
If you pull it up and all you get is a gray box it may take a few moments if you have a slow internet connection. You may need to do some down loads. Barry will have to fill us in on that, but I'm sure it's from Java. Most of you should already have it on your PC's.
For now it will be easier if we just post what times might be good for everyone to meet in the chat room. I will not be able to chat tonight, but if some of you would like to you can. It is open for all.
I can be on tomorrow at around 9pm eastern, 6pm western. Try and bee there we always have fun.

Hi Dennis -
To log in, simply enter a username/handle in the text box once the initializing process has finished. Certain restrictions are imposed on usernames, and they must be 15 letters or less in length.
To communicate in the chat room, you merely need to type text into the little text box towards the bottom of the applet, and press Enter to send your message. Your message will appear in the content (larger) box above it when it is received by the server. Others may then read what you have typed, and respond to you. If you wish to get another user's attention, simply type in their name somewhere within the message that you are sending them. Their message will appear in a different color, and a sound will be played.
I included a link fpr help on the chat page if you are experiencing trouble connecting. I'm still fine tuning everything. I would like to upgrade to the Professional version if members want it. Members would need to come up with $75.00. Humm, let's see . . . . if 75 members each sent $1 . . . or I go ahead and get it and charge $1 to access it . . . there has to be a way. I'll do whatever members want.
what does the upgrade do?
- Unlimited Simultaneous (concurrent) users chatting
- Many More Customizable Options
- Built-in subrooms
- Many options to enable/disable certain features
- No-shout option prevents your users from YELLING in the chat room
- NO advertisements!
- Lots of administrative controls
Sun Java Plug-In (Recommended)
Appears at the bottom of the screen in the help section.
What will this do for me?
I think the free Java down loads is just the standard Java software. You can click on the link and read the FAQ. Most PCs should have Java with the software. If not you can get it for free at the link. If you read through the FAQ and find somthing different let us know.
I'll offer my share of the software.
I was thinking, lets say that in the next 30 days, you get commitments from folks to share in the cost of the software, you can divide those up and let each know what our share comes to and we can send it whereever you want us to.
Unless there's a better idea.....
After I downloaded the files, it started to install - then PC lock up. I'm going to try without it and see if it's ok.
I have rose hips, it's mostly vitamin c.
I might soak some and mix it in for early spring buildup and see what happens.
Thanks bunches for the information, Dennis.
What a swell bunch!
Hmmm, I don't know how my last post got here?
