Live Real-Time Chat Room Now Online!

Enjoy the new real-time live Internet Relay Chatroom (IRC) on the website. It's usable by every operating system that supports Java (Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD, handhelds, smart phones, etc.) with most java-enabled web-browsers.

This is different than IM (instant messaging like MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, etc.).

Whereas IM allows you to chat one-on-one, or you setup a private chatroom with your buddies, IRC is a public chatroom (though you can create private rooms easily) where everyone gets to chat, share files, etc. with everyone else.

Please check it out and provide any feedback.

To join the chat room, just point your web browser to the website and click on the "Chat" link in the navigation bar.

Or just go to:

Wait a few moments while the application downloads to your system, then you will see a pop-up requesting permissions to run the Java applet, be sure to allow/grant all permissions. Then it will load, and you will be in the chatroom.

You can view it with just your web-browser (and java installed), or you can download an IRC client for your operating system. Some examples of IRC clients include (but are not limited to):
* Linux/FreeBSD/NetBSD/OpenBSD: Xchat, kopete, mozilla-chat, ksirc, etc.
* Mac: Xchat Aqua for Mac, Easy IRC, IrcLe.
* Windows: xchat for Windows

If you have an IRC client installed, which is a bit better (more features) than the java client through your web-browser, then you can just point your IRC client to:
Chatroom: #ASL

I'm usually loitering in the channel if I'm online (a lot).

If no one is chatting, say hello, then just hang out there/loiter. If everyone hangs out there, rather than just popping in and out, then it will get some good conversations rolling.

Feedback is always welcome.

"Holistic medicine treats the person rather than the disease,
it's concern lies with the 'whole person' and with permitting
individuals to assume self-responsibility for their own health.
Whereas illness is the sole concern of 'traditional medicine', 
holistic 'well medicine' deals with wellness and health promotion"
