First New Live Chat Deemed “Beta”

RBS revived our Tuesday Live Chat yesterday at 2PM and encountered some problems with the new IRC server. It seems it worked great during testing, but when we put it under load it choked. We finally found and fixed the problem (we raised the number of connections allowed through WEBIRC) but it took us an hour to fix it and we ran out of time for the live chat session.

Mitch Romm dubbed this week’s session a “beta test,” and so it was.

The next Live Chat will be Tuesday, Aug 23 at 2PM US Central Time. You can log in with your favorite IRC client using the link on the page at the following URL, or you can participate using our on-site Web IRC client.

See you there!
