Hi Brad,
The instant message wheel is squeaking again any update.
Hope your programmer is back to oil the squeaking wheel.

With a little good luck, this month. With a little bad luck, April. Dependes on how things go, it's prime reunion planning time so we're super busy.

It also depends how the new Live Chat goes as we're trying to release these things simultaneously. The new Live Chat is very cool -- you can turn on your webcams and see each other. You can share and watch YouTube videos together while you chat about them. And other cool stuff. Or, you can leave all that stuff off and just chat. Smile

Wow Shocked The webcam thing is better then instant messaging, OK Brad that oils this squeaky wheel for now. BTW will the webcam thing be just one on one or a group thing?
Thanks:Very Happy

It's a group thang. Smile

In the new interface there is a video window constantly in the upper right corner. Next to each Live Chatters' name is a webcam icon (if they have it turned on that is). So you can click on any Chatter's icon to see their live web cam feed. If all chat participants click on the same person's icon, then yes, they'd all be watching the same person while you're all chatting.

The video window is dual use. Let's say you have a YouTube video you want everyone to see. You can just copy the YouTube video link into the YouTube icon on the chat interface and it will send all Chatters a "Watch Video" button to click on. When they click that, up comes the YouTube video in the upper right corner. Now all Chatters can watch and discuss the video as it plays.

You can easily switch back and forth from streaming YouTube videos to multiple webcam feeds, etc. If it sounds cool that's cause it is. Smile Although I have to confess, we got all these ideas from you guys here in the forum.
