View Full Version : Suggestion About Saturday...

04-17-2001, 09:44 AM
I was reading in another thread about worries that this board wouldn't be up Saturday at NFL Draft time. I have to agree with that. In fact, the KC Star BB probably will be over loaded and will go down or we won't be able to access it.

Given as I would like to share thoughts and opinions w/ other Chiefs fans in real time, I was thinking: would anyone be interested in going to a chat room (somewhere) for the draft on Saturday? We wouldn't have to worry about crashing servers on the Planet or the Star BBs for that time period. One thing: I don't know the location of a serviceable chat room--Does anyone have a suggestion for a place we could 'invade' on Draft day? Is anyone else interested in doing the real-time chat thing vs the BBs?

What say?

Try IRC.

You can download free IRC(Internet Relay Chat) programs such as mIRC from <a href="http://www.tucows.com">Tucows</a>. You can then setup a 'channel' such as #KCChiefs_Chat on any IRC server you choose.

There is a learning curve involved...

This site <i>should</i> be up though!

I think that would be pretty cool if the BB is not able to keep up...

I'll be in Cleveland this weekend taking my first formal test in Kendo. However, I intend to be back at the hotel sometime that evening to see how we did the first day.

I highly second the suggestion to set up a room on #IRC. All you need is for someone to "create" a room and everyone else can use it. There are a few learning curves, but if I can figure it out, anyone can :D (Hmm, that doesn't sound so good..., oh well).

I'm going to have to hope the Chiefs have good enough sense to pass on Green and either grab Tomlinson or Henry with their pick. We need a good RB to compliment T Rich. Why waste one of the best FB's in the game? Then to appease Gaz, all our 3rd and 4th rounders should be stud defenders. After that, lets get some good quality players for those horendous special teams and good quality back-ups.

Just my prescription

Then to appease Gaz

'Bout dam' time someone started appeasing me.

Painfully unappeased on a regular basis.

What am I thinking?

Gaz is an engineer, I'm a tech writer....

I can't start agreeing with him :D:D

I'll set one up if an Admin wants to link it to this site.

It is over already?

Geez, I thought appeasing would last longer than thatů

Now knows how his ex-wife felt.

maybe we should schedule a practice run.

someone could establish a chat room and post the addy on this thread. maybe even schedule a practice meeting to see that everyone arrives in the room without much confusion.

The only problem I see, is that the Saturday chat address (room name) would have to be the same as the practice room address. 'Cause if the Da Planet goes down ,no one is gonna know where to meet.

I not exactly sure I'll be around on draft day.
