    I have Vent and Teamspeak but never had to use them. Most games I play have built-in Voice support. It would be kool to have a voice chat night. Then we could hear how drunk Max truly is

    Maybe I am just too computer illiterate at this point, but the chat we have seems a little "hard" to access for the "average" person. If there was some way we could make a web page or something where they just "clicked" on a button...

    Skype is a good option for chating and you can call with voice without losing speed. Skype is a very friendly environment. You can open a team room and have someone to administrate the chat Including and deleting people.

    Well, I didn't really see any nayers to the vent thing. Give me a week or so and I'll set up a small (10 -20 person) temporary (1-3 months) vent account and we can see how it goes with that. If it dies out, it's no great loss.

    How may votes do I get?

    Yo-

    P.S. The idea is not to replace the weekly chat sessions, but provide an alternative method of communication on a different evening.

    OK, this is as close to "One Button" as I know. After this is setup it will take only two or three clicks to get into the chat room.

    You will need two things.
    1) FireFox 3.6 or higher
    2) ChatZilla Plugin for FireFox

    *Add ChatZilla to FF and restart.

    *At the FF main menu click Tools > Add-Ons, find and click on the ChatZilla section and then click the Options button in the lower left corner which will bring up the ChatZilla Options window.

    *In the Options window click the General tab find the text-box labeled nickname and enter the name you wish to use for the chat room.

    *Next, click on the Startup tab and in the lower section labeled Auto-Connect URLs, click the Add button, enter irc://irc.freenode.net/team_seti.usa into the popup window and click OK. Now click the OK button in the Preferences window and close FireFox.

    To run ChatZilla startup FireFox (This is Click #1) and in the main menu click Tools (That's #2) and finally click the ChatZilla menu entry (Click #3). ChatZilla will now automatically connect to freenet and enter the team chat room with your nickname.

    That's it. Your in Like Flint.
