I'm looking for a live chatbox to put on my site. But I have no idea how these things work. Any suggestions how to do this? Maybe ASP or Java. Any help would be appreciated on how to find one for free. I would also like it to connect to IRC. Hey, i'm demanding, I know.

Java's probably your best option. However, I seem to remember that you're pretty good with Flash. I don't know if you could make a chat program in Flash, but you could try.

check out the shoutbox they have there.
i also found other apps that let you put a "chatroom" on your page, and some are free, but they may be slow because they have to use a specific chat server...
sorry i can't remember the urls, or the names of the programs.
Hmm...theres something a little peculiar here. Oh i see what it is! the sentence is talking about itself! do you see that? what do you mean? sentences can\'t talk! No, but they REFER to things, and this one refers directly-unambigeously-unmistakably-to the very sentence which it is!

I'd like to try a flash one, but I think it would be hard. I'd love to see one, and if anyone would like to take a shot at it, please do. Anyways, follow danis's advice I guess because I know a couple solution's to it. Also, I can set one up for you or whatever, so PM me. Take care! -- Jason Copeland

Before I get banned, maybe I would like to at least help someone.
I am sort of, well, 'well-versed' in Flash and am currently working on multi-user applications.
Firstly, you need a socket server.
This is moock's one: http://www.moock.org/unity/
The socket server can be writen in many languages - Perl, Java, Python, C++ etc.
Here is an example of one written in Perl: http://www.cab.u-szeged.hu/local/doc...etExample.html
Then, you need a XML connection between Flash and the server.
