Washy,
Keep trying mate.  Many of us have that problem and some days are worse than others.  Some times I can be in there for up to 8 hours without being booted.

Further, I think that there is a script in the program causing the boot :(

I am in the chat often in the Aussie evenings.  Look for Aussie Karrob.

I am in Bathurst NSW, so welcome to RootsChat and to the Chat Room as well :)

Regards
Robert

Washy
Just to second what Robert has said.
We all seem to get disconnected at some time or other.  Some people are coming and going all the time as a result. We usually make a joke of it.  ;D
We are a friendly bunch and there are plenty of UK people in during the UK day who can help you with research (or just chat.)
So do try again.

I have been in the chat room three times.  All three times I got booted out.  On the first try I was too embarrassed to go back.

Months later I tried it again and asked why it happened...I was told it happens all the time and one this occasion the whole room went out.  I found it upsetting as I was just getting into the flow of the conversation, starting to figure out who everyone was and then zaaaaaaaaap I was gone.  One chap told me that it happened between 9:15 and 9:30 BST so I guess it is really common.

One of these days when I am on at a decent time for me...I am seven hours behind most and when they are already in bed when I want to go on...and then I am too tired to read when they wake up lol..

They seem a wonderful bunch of people....I just wish we didn't have such different time zones.
