irish,

I was just able to log in a minute ago. Maybe shut down your browser and try again? Make sure that Java is working?

Here's the link to verify your Java installation:

Irish,

Try power-cycling your computer, modem, router or any other networking hardware you have.
I have to do that fairly regularly.

Download free ace explorer.
Java is total crap and is not compatible with a load of software, so good job its on its way out.

Java is a pain in the butt, and it can exploit your computer as it runs programs on your comp.
It has totally messed up Opera browser, but I can get in with Netscape.

It has been updated to make even sadder pop ups than of past, to make money from these idiots who want to make money out of you, and throw porn down your throat.

You could uninstall it, as it has no use in male survivor other than to disable functions.

Do I detect a degree of bitterness toward JAVA? \:D \:D

A bit or searching on Google should reveal some sites that offer older versions of Java for download. If you can find it try downloading the one with the highest version number other than the version you have and see how it works.

That's the only suggestion I can think of.

I can get in with both netscape and ace explorer.
IE is uninstalled, but I recently deleted all cookies and files in IE tool menu, under internet options.

Deleting cookies will mean that your auto login will be disabled to this site and you will have to re-login.

I know the latest Java is not so good, but it has not stopped those two browsers from letting me in, not that I ever go there,

Not that it matters now that we have a new chatroom, but I've had similar problems like batcountry mentions with the MS chatroom in the past. Wouldn't work with one browser so I used the other and when I went back to the first browser it worked also.

Strange stuff!
