Idea Idea Idea

Here's an idea: use VDS and an FTP DLL (such as VDSDLL27) to create a chat/instant message system for users on VDSWORLD. Similar to Mac's network chat example, this could FTP text to the server, a script on the server processes it, and notifies the recepient.

Marty did a VDS chat script for VDSWORLD already, it's probably still in testing stage.
It's using a custom Perl script on the VDSWORLD server that he made, which of course
is accessed through HTTP. Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to actually try his
script yet, hopefully he'll respond to this thread too.

Of course an open source project related to this would be a good idea. If you would need
to have any PHP script running (on HTTP requests only, not permanently) on the VDSWORLD
server which would handle a chat system which is specifically aimed at VDS, you'd be
very welcome to contact us.

Having a Perl script would actually probably be a lot better. I had given that example seeing as I don't know any Perl...

Just a thought (may not even apply here).... Smile

If users are expecting help in a chat prog, it needs
multiple rooms. Otherwise, if there's more than one
user with a question, things can get pretty confusing.

AIM is the most easy/reliable I've tried. It's free, and
works for non-AOL users... Wink

Cheers, Mac Smile

I made a little realtime chat client so VDS users could chat live to each other (Using flash/vdsflash DLL and perl). But Mac your right it would be preferable to have multiple rooms... I will look into that.

The client I have right now is for multiple users at once... and the source code will be given to registered users of the soon to be released VDSFLASH DLL (Macromedia Flash support for VDS)

Im currently on vacation Laughing Very Happy Very Happy and will probably finish the client next week.

Stay tuned...

You could also use the viewonline.php that comes with the PHPBB Forum when you download it to get who is browsing the forum to make a sort of "buddy list"...
