Chat Venue:      http://users.andara.com/~mbw/chat.htm

Select "Huff 'N Puff" at the bottom of the page. From there you will find the link to the private chat room.

The chat room login screen can take as long as 2 minutes to load.  It is a good idea to check out the chat room prior to your first visit there, as you have to register a "nickname" and this may take quite a few minutes. Should you have to do this there is NO cost! 

Having Problems?

You may have to wait a couple of minutes to connect to the server.  If nothing happens after a couple of minutes, or you receive an error message you can try the following:

Step 1

Check that you are connected to the Internet.  See if you can go to other
web pages.

            7.Set Verify Documents to Every Time
            8.Click on OK
            9.Exit Netscape completely and restart it.

Use the mouse to click on the REFRESH button on your browser's toolbar.
       Flush the browser's cache:

            2.Select OPTIONS
            3.Select ADVANCED

Whether using Netscape or Internet Explorer try to log in to the Huff & Puff chat room again.
