Looks good UOK, thank you!

I just wanted to add a link to the chat room stats page.

http://webpages.charter.net/badfinger/s ... rshow.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I usually upload a fresh stats page the day after the game. Something to show appreciation to those that joined us. Monstershow has been getting pretty good participation so far this year.

If you don't hear "goats" at least a dozen times, it's not even worth the experience.

I'm running windoze 10 on my laptop. I can connect to the java site with no problem. The same instructions should be good. I've only used the firefox browser. Haven't tried connecting with chrome or the new MS edge browser which I don't think is completely hatched yet. Might be good to make sure you're running the latest java.

I made a season updated chat room stats page. I haven’t been updating the stats page much this season. Ormazd asked about it today in the chat room. I didn’t think there was much interest in viewing the chat stats anymore. It's always interesting to see how much some of us cuss in there. :rofl:

webpages.charter.net/badfinger/stats/monstershow.html

My signature is linked to the chat stats, so you can click there too.

The new Firefox browser update has hosed the java chat applet on my page.

“Beginning in Firefox version 52, support for NPAPI plugins in Firefox has ended, except for Adobe Flash. Some of the plugins that will no longer load include Java, Microsoft Silverlight and Adobe Acrobat. See this compatibility document for details.”

Also I had to update the mibbit link because one of starfyre’s servers is set to SSL only.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.

This is the new mibbit chat link.

http://widget00.mibbit.com/?settings=e8 ... onstershow" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Sorry about the java issue. I’ll try to work out a solution before the draft.

Here’s a compilation of chat stats from the 2016 season.

http://webpages.charter.net/badfinger/s ... rshow.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I guess I’ll need to remove the Cutler/Jeffery fans blocks. :frustrated:

Are you ready for the draft chat?!?
Unfortunately the Chrome & the latest Firefox browsers are now blocking java applets. Java chat will still work using the debunked internet explorer browser IF you haven’t updated java past version 8 update 121. Be careful with internet explorer since Microsoft is no longer updating it since its spamming edge browser debut.
I added a mibbit iframe to my page so there’s a mibbit chat window there too instead of only a link.

http://webpages.charter.net/badfinger/chat.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I thought some would prefer it to the mibbit site link here.

http://widget00.mibbit.com/?settings=e8 ... onstershow" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I’m looking forward to seeing you guys again! As usual it’s been a long wait for the draft. Hopefully the Bears do better than in previous years and select some starting athletes that don't end up on the injury report.

Road, God damnit, my laptop crapped out on me! I'm in a panic to get it fixed so I can join tonight. Worst case scenario, I'll be there via cellphone

Can't wait!!

Also, I got the java applet to work with Firefox, FWIW.

Works on firefox for me too. See you in a few hours.

G08: glad you got the java to work on firefox. All I can figure is you don't have auto update ticked.
malk: you connected with the mibbit connection. That works on any browser still, mibbit doesn't use java.
wab: too bad dude! you're an awesome Dad!

I'm heading to the grocery store to stock up on munchies for tonight!

FYI: The live chat link below the BFO banner on the forum page no longer connects to the chat room.
Use one of these links.

http://widget00.mibbit.com/?settings=e8 ... onstershow" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

http://webpages.charter.net/badfinger/chat.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The charter link has both java & mibbit connections. People without java or an updated browser blocking java will only see the mibbit connection.

See yas in a bit!

Maybe I found a way of making the java chat applet work again for some of you. It's working on all 3 of my systems now. :rimshot:

I wrote up this page and thought maybe someone might want to try it before tonights Trubrisky show.

I admit I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer and my driveway doesn’t go all the way to the garage. There are a few more sounds in the chat than just goats.

You can access the chat from any device if you have the right program. I use AndChat on my android phone. Just configure your device to point at irc.starfyre.org and join channel #Monstershow. The mibbit webpage doesn’t work real well from a phone just because the type is too small.

That sure was an ugly end to the preseason tonight. Those browns look extra mean this year. After they already roughed Mitch out of bounds. I wasn’t pleased to see him have to reenter the game when Shaw went down.

Trying to connect via AndChat. Thought it'd be a case of pointing the address at irc.starfyre.org then joining the channel. Instead it just states disconnected: connection refused.

What rookie mistake am I making?
