<font size="2">If you haven't read this topic skip the first few parapraghs.

<b><font color=blue>Teamspeak Server Up with new IP!</font> This is a free program with no ads etc whatsoever that allows voice communication. It takes no-time to set up. Go here and download the first thing on the page. http://www.goteamspeak.com/index.php?page=downloads Run the program and go to "connection" then "quick connect" then paste <font color=red></font> into the IP box and that's all you need. The rest will be explained once you are in there. Email me at sgort87@hotmail.com or IM me (sgort87) if there are any problems.</b>

<font size="3"><b><font color=green>Main discussions are on Sunday evenings around 7 or 8 Central Time.</font></font></b>

<font size="2">Here it is guys. This is the Spudtech AOL Instant Messenger Chat Room. <b><font color="red">Read this whole post before entering!</b></font> If you are online, click this and you will automatically join the Spudtech Chat Room (SCR) on AIM. If there is no one in it the link should create the chat and if you wait I am sure people will soon join you.

<b><a href="aim:gochat?roomname=Spudtech">SCR</a></b> (Trillian users read below.)

The first thing to do in SCR is to introduce yourself by your Spudtech forum name. (Playing identity games will not be tolerated.) <b>If it is not obvious of what your forum name is by your screen name please include your Spudtech forum name in your AIM profile on the first line if possible.</b>

Have fun and don't be an asshole. No spamming or excessive swearing. <b>FORUM RULES APPLY IN THE CHAT!</b>

Make spudding topics the first priority. Other conversations are fine, but please leave stories about your cousin for another time if there is someone talking about an actual spudgun topic.

Remember that if no one is in there I promise someone will be eventually. But if you immediately leave then the next person may do the same. So if you are online and have time please stay in the chat room so the next person can catch you. Make it a habit when scanning the forums to log into SCR and contribute in the live discussions.

Thank you, Darth Tater, for your knowledge of usually useless AIM codes.

If you continuously annoy people in SCR we will have no choice but to create a new room with a password to access the link so only trusted people may enter. You may also be threatened to be banned from the forum. This chat room has Spudtech's name and the forum rules apply because if something bad comes up Spudtech can be held responsible. I hope it would not go that far, but this is just a little warning.

<b><font color="blue">Trillian users (Works for AIM too):</font></b> To use this have yourself on your buddy list and give yourself a chat invitation. Before sending the invite change the name of the room to "Spudtech". When you receive the invite it should take you to SCR. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we are looking for an easier route. (It is actually much faster to do it this way than finding the link on Spudtech.)

<b><font color="blue">Making SCR desktop icon:</font></b> (Thanks C0mp3x) Right click on you desktop and click on "New", then "Shortcut". In the location box paste in: aim:gochat?roomname=Spudtech and give the icon the name SCR afterwards instead of the default "New Internet Shortcut".

Here is a neat picture you can use as an icon. Save this picture on your computer, open it with paint and then save it as a bmp file. While you are in paint change the black background to any other color if you wish. (I spent a lot of time making that background all black because of all the off-white pixels.) To change the icon to this right click the current icon and hit "properties" then "Change Icon". Once there browse and click on the bmp file you saved.

This might turn out nice if this becomes the official chatroom of spudtech. I will join in on the chat from time to time.
