    Hello everybody, I have a question about chat rooms. Is it possible to add a chat room to a site or do you have to be a super web company like yahoo or aol to provide a chat room. Any links or recomendations to chat room providers? Thanks for your help.

    You can add a chat room to your site using a variety of solutions ranging from Java to ASP. Most hosts though do not allow chat rooms except on dedicated servers because they eat a LOT of CPU cycles. You can start a club on Yahoo that will give you chat room capabilities. Also if your going to host it yourself you can go to one of the free script resources like cgi.resourceindex.com (for PERL) or www.aspin.com (for ASP).
