Who here has the ability and know how to start up a chat room? (Billy, I'm looking at you). I think it would be neat if we could all get together and BS in real time. And could it be made webtv friendly? Just a thought if not a dumb one.

Sounds like a good idea if you are into chatting. Im not! isn�t it time consuming? and what about the paranoia some of us would develope, is somebody online now? And what about all those well spendt chatting hours, how would my playing improve if i played my Sitar all that time? Would it lead people away from the forum? Realtime advice is great, and that is pretty much what i get out of this forum.
But hey! who am i to care about you guys? ; ) You just chat along and ill shut up and play my Sitar...
For some reason I think if you own a yahoo group you they have a chat room included. Maybe I will start something up, but if you dont mind it will cover the aspects of all Hindustani instruments, but mainly stringed isntruments.

There is an option in the profile for ICQ stuff, which is fine for one on one chats. I find chat rooms a bit noisy, lots of blather rolling by. I prefer the one on one stuff. Regarding IRC there are a bunch of free open source ones around see freshmeat.net (this forum runs on redhat linux with apache, all open source). I wouldn't want to maintain one though. They seem to get hacked a lot. I would be willing to set one up, just need an available linux box, like this forum runs on
