Thanks for the update, Steve,
It's looking more and more like users are at least at a partial disadvantage
they use Netscape. In this weekend's experiments, we could not find any way
use Netscape in the Community Chat Room (altho there is a Netscape add-in
chat.msn.com, but that's not the same). However, service was very reliable
(probably partially due to a load drop over the July 4 holiday). Some of us
had 3 hours worth of Chat Room time non-stop without interruption.
Hopefully, being driven to Microsoft technologies for this site won't drive
anyone away. Besides, there is always direct contact, but the resources of
the Community take a lot of the work of collaboration away.

I had a little trouble with Netscape 4.7 on a Sun but I did get it to
work. I got a bunch of 404 errors but it would the find the page on the
next try. I do have a fast connection so that my have something to do
with it. I'll have to try it from home.
I probably doesn't work any better with IE :-)
