    Meh. Well, I think I finally figured out why I haven't been able to access the chat. Which leads me to the following two questions;

    1. The reason I can't connect, is because I turned down the certificate that popped up asking if I trusted it or not. Like the safety freak I am, I did not trust this unknown certificate and clicked 'Never allow'. Ah, but now I find that the chat needed me to trust it >_< So, my question is, does anyone know how to make Firefox re-ask me the question?

    2. Upon finding that I had a really old version of Internet explorer still installed on my Mac, I thought 'hey, I'll try this'. And sure enough, it asked me about the certificate and I said 'Trust' (Firefox still won't let me on). I logged into chat just fine... except nothing happens. The chat says that people are in the chat, but I can't see what they are saying. I refreshed a few times but stopped, because I don't want to annoy those happily chatting by popping in and leaving again over and over.

    Can anyone help?

    (I apologise to anyone in the chat when I was trying to access it earlier)

    We aren't always the most active of people on the chat - hardly anyone's spoken the entire time I've been on it today, about 3 hours now - so don't expect conversations to be rolling around even if people are online. Sorry if the lack of talking confused you, if that was indeed the problem. ^^" As for the certificate problem, I have no idea, sorry.

    Hmm, maybe that's the case. Though I was 'messing' around for quite a while trying to get it working, and no left or joined in that entire time, so it could be another issue. I gave up because people must have gotten sick of seeing 'Silvermagpie_is_a_N00b has joined the chat :p

    Lol, at least my old browser might be working then. I'll just have to use that for the time being... and hope people talk ^^

    Thanks a lot :)
