Helps keep things clean. Like keeping the dicebots out, apparently. I still can't roll a 1d1.5.

There were problems with dialogue in a chat on VOGON UK! Entered letters are written incorrectly in a chaotic order!

OK, it's back to normal text. That's special mod function, it turns any serious discussion or arguing into fun instantly. :-D

Now you can just click to join with your existing username, if you are logged in. Thanks to AG for his idea and very nice JS solution!

You still can log out and log back in to use diff username, if you want that.

AG you can post the code here, if you think it may help other webmasters. We are using phpbb specific implementation, but your code may work with all forums.

Code: Select all
document.getElementsByClassName('icon-chat')[0].getElementsByTagName('a')[0].href += '?userName=' + /Logout \[ ([^\s]*)/i.exec(document.getElementsByClassName('icon-logout')[0].innerHTML)[1];

if you stick it in window onload, it greps the username from the "Logout [ ___ ]" string and adds "?userName=___" to the "Chat [#]" link href.

pretty simple but ugly just to save space and time.

This is very useful code snippet, not only for forums, but also for any page where you want to generate output or links based on page content.

Chat is now even faster and more responsive! It uses Socket server and JavaScript-to-Flash bridge on client side. You don't need to install anything, just make sure Flash and browsers are updated. If there is no flash installed, or if browser is very old, it will revert to normal chat system over html.

Socket Server:
==============

Using the AJAX technology alone the chat clients have to permanently pull updates from the server.
This is due to AJAX being a web technology and HTTP being a stateless protocol.
Events pushed from server-side need a permanent or long-lasting socket connection between clients and server.
This requires either a custom HTTP server (called "comet") or another custom socket server.

AJAX Chat uses a JavaScript-to-Flash bridge to establish a permanent socket connection from client side.
The JavaScript-to-Flash bridge requires a Flash plugin >= 9 installed on the user browser.
Clients without this requirement will fall back to pull the server for updates.

Yes, it uses improved Flash socket instead of HTML updates. It should feel more responsive.

Feel free to join @ http://chat.vogonhq.com/ or use chat [] link above, which will log you into the chat with your username. That same link can be bookmarked as well, it should be like that: http://chat.vogonhq.com/?userName=name

Problem with chat is, like with new servers sometimes, people join and wait 1-5 min and leave. You need to idle for a bit of time, so more people join.

If you are using Firefox 3 or Internet Explorer 8 i recommend you upgrade to IE9 / FF4 / Chrome for Ajax Chat.

I got ubuntu 11.04 when it came out and it plays cod4 perfecty, through wine! I couldn't believe it! Ill post a tutorial if somebody wants me to. I couldn't believe it worked. I don't really like the whole dock thing there starting to use... what do they call it, unity? It would be cool if I could figure out a way to move the unity bar position to the bottom... if anyone knows please tell me! I wonder if anyone else has tryed to run any other games with ubuntu with success or even failure.
