The chat rooms should work now, but it will require clearing your browser's cache. As luck would have it, I've been working the past 3 days on integrating another 3rd party solution, and was about to push out a rough version of it to get feedback on. It wasn't as flashy as the current chat rooms - both figuratively AND literally. IE NOT FLASH BASED! That was a joke. Anywho, being not based on flash, this new option works on Ipad/Iphone/Android, which would be a great improvement. The downside is that it's still in beta, and the software company says it won't be "production" quality until the end of March.
So, the plus side of this is that we wouldn't be A) Reliant on the whims of Adobe Flash and B Not limited to Flash-enabled devices. At this point I'm going to put it on the back burner and wait until it's production quality. I do apoligize for the inconvenience of this. I don't like not being in control of the code that supports the site, and in this case I was completely at the mercy of Adobe and the chat software company.
I'll be sending out an email to anyone who had been in the chat rooms recently to let them know.
