Hi there.

I pretty urgently need a chat solution for my website.

I know you can get remotely hosted Java applets that link into IRC.

You can also get Java applets that you host yourself that link into IRC.

I would prefer the second option because it is obviously more flexible with no adverts, but i am aware that it sucks up bandwidth. How much would this be, with an average of this :

once a week, 10 users in the chat room for 2 or 3 hours, typing an average amount.

Thanks very much
James
