Accessing chatroom through a firewall ?

G'day Sim

I have tried to email you directly but am only getting error messages, hence my email here.

A few weeks ago you were kind enough to help me gain access to the chat room via however, I regret to inform that this site has now been withdrawn due to reasons unknown by me.

What this means is that I am unable to access the chat rooms due to my work having a firewall in place unless of course you have another 'gem' up your sleeve??

Any suggestions?





I'll have a hunt around and see what I can find.

Any web programmers out there care to try writing a CGI (or similar) based IRC client for those people who can ONLY use web browsers and HTTP to access the 'net ?

I'd give it a crack myself, but I'm rather busy trying to get this forum up and running.
