  • HCM Chat on AOL

    Hi All,

    A lot of folks have expressed an interest in setting up a chatroom here at the HCMA so we can all get together and discuss various things. Understandably, this is something that Lisa and the crew have been reluctant to establish, given that it would need to be monitored and such. However, i did want to mention that a bunch of us have been getting together every evening for a group chat on AOL Instant Messenger, and this has been something that all of us have enjoyed very much.

    If you don't currently have AOL Instant Messenger, you may download it for free at: http://www.aim.com/

    Until now, we have simply setup a new chatroom every night when there are enough of us available, but if anyone here knows of a way to setup a permanent AOL chatroom for us to use, that info would be greatly appreciated as i don't know how to do that myself. Tim, perhaps you could help us in this area?

    Please feel free to add my screenname to your AOL buddy list, and i will be sure to include you in our next chat tonight. And if you know of any other instant messaging programs that may better serve our needs, by all means please let me know.

    My AOL screenname is MTLIEB, just like here on the board.

    Re: HCMA Chat on AOL

    Well, I am not familiar with how to setup a permanent AOL chatroom. However, if everyone would fill in their profile with their contact information ....

    Then it would be easier to send people a real-time chat message by clicking on one of the buttons at the bottom of each post:

    That way you can quickly send your friends a true instant message and perhaps invite them to a chat room (if available).

    Click on the Profile button at the top of this page to edit your profile and include all this information. Don't forget to include your LOCATION
    Thanks, Tim
