Right click on the chat icon on the home page and then click on 'open link in new window' and make sure your speakers are switched on.  Then you can carry on doing what you're doing until some one else enters when you will hear a tone.  You can then join in the chat!

Fitty & Ticker,

Thanks for that but.........................(and I always knew I was thick).......................

a)  I got email saying you had replied to me, but when I tried to see your replies from the email link I got a message saying 'access is denied to me'.
b) I found your messages through the normal route!
c)  What is 'Shockwave Flash' and how do I update it?
d)  Windows updates are done automatically on my pc.
e)  I followed your instructions Ticker and got exactly the same as before, i.e. Loading settings, 0%.
f)  Why should I assume anyone would want to chat with me anyway?

Jill

Jill.  Are you still having trouble?  How long have you left it when you get the message 'loading settings 0%' message?  It can take a fair amount of time to load up the first time you go in.  Are you on a broadband connection?

Hi Ticker,

I haven't bothered at all until I got your message, then clicked on 'Chat' and Hey Presto!   What a pretty green screen!   Nobody in there though!

I don't have complete faith that this is going to happen every time, but when it did it was instant.   No, I don't have broadband - not in my area yet.   I have previously left it running for 3 or 4 mins. without result.

We shall see what happens now - I will let you know!   Thanks for your help.
