Sorry Dom and FCG - I am not in favor of either a chat room or a pager system. Chat rooms tend to become breeding grounds for flame fests as well as ...... dare I say it ..... the formation of cliques and people who aren't part of that circle tend to feel left out. I am not in favor of a pager system for several reasons, those being: (1) Many people don't want to be "bugged" with PMs much less via a pager system; (2) If someone can't wait to get an answer to a PM on an internet BB, maybe they need to develop the art of patience; and (3) Might I suggest an exchange of email addys or chatting via AIM/YIM? Just my two cents.
