So, what ever happened to the hatrackchat AIM chatroom? I realize it has been a number of years since I regularly visited it and even longer since I trolled around here, but why did everyone leave the chatroom behind?

Who uses AIM chat anymore -- for anything? [Wink]

Chat is dead. Hatrackchat only lives on in our memories...

It is so sad, though. Look, I am going to sit in the chat while I am here at work. If anyone wants to come, I'll be there keeping it real and kickin' it old school.

I did not know there was even such a thing. There had been a chatroom on here once upon a time, but there was rarely anyone in there.

Ah, the old days of chat. And Scrabble. I miss those days.

How's it going, Austin?

Well, for a long time I was Internet-less. The only reason I have it now is that it comes with the house I'm renting. [Smile]

Does anyone know if it works to connect through Trillian? When I connect it's titled "hatrackchat" instead of "Hatrackchat" and I'm the only one in it so I don't know if it's the right room or not.

yes, it does work to connect through trillian. For months that is how I did it. This will be the last day I try to sit in the chat.

No luck? I started to come in the other night but for some reason my version of AIM doesn't let me invite myself to chat now.

I met my (now-pregnant) wife in "hatrack chat" on AIM, so you can imagine that I have fond memories of it.

We used to be so much more of a community. I can't imagine anyone meeting their wife/husband on this site now.

What happened? Why is this place no longer that much of a community?

There are a number of theories. The most amusing thing about the last couple of times this has been debated is just how nasty the debates were.

Tossing around gasoline while complaining about your house being on fire is sad for those who loved the house. [/crazy analogy]

Well, there's the problem right there... You've undervalued our worth.
