New Feature: Chat on Pisteuomen

Friends, I have decided to add a new "chat" feature to the blog. It is free for all to use and is incredibly simple. In just two easy steps, here's how it works:

1. Locate and click the "chat" icon situated in the top right column of this blog. Give the icon a few seconds to load (for those of you using a 56K dial-up modem, it should take about 45-50 seconds). When it has loaded, double-click the "start chatting" button.

2. Once the chat room loads, a brief note will appear that says something akin to "signing you in." The beauty of the chat room is that you don't have to sign-up for anything; you will simply be signed in as a guest in my chat room. Once this has happened, you are free to talk. You might even make sure your volume is turned up a bit so you can hear when other visitors come into the chat room.

Also, you can navigate other chat rooms as well. I noticed that there were a bunch of religious ones, so, some of you might enjoy that. Oh and if you chat in another room, try to remember to pass on my site address...that's always very appreciated. You should also know that you can chat with other visitors to Pisteuomen if you drop in at the same time as them. On another note, ignore the sometimes "odd" and sometimes "silly" banners at the bottom of the screen--those are not my doing!

Finally, if you do want to "officially" sign-up to have your own screen name (mine is Pisteuomen) or add a chat room to your site, click the following link: Blog Chat. Once you've done that, just click "sign-up" and follow the on-screen directions.


  1. Wow! That's a cool feature. I never thought of doing something like that. I think that DailyKos has something like that, but have never been chatting through blogging.

  2. Yeah,
    I thought it was pretty neat. When are you generally on the net? We could try it some time.

  3. I have CPE this summer, so the time that I can allocate to blogging is now sparce and scattered. Let me check when my on-call night is next week, and maybe we can do it then. Unless a patient dies and my beeper goes off, etc.
