Welcome to Nezha and Blue Rook to the group.

Question. Do you guys and gal want to keep the ICQ group? If not I can just cancel it. I think we only have about 6 out of the 17 Knights plus one reporter signed up. We also haven't had a meeting in over a month I believe. Just wondering.

What is the difference with a blog comment?

I wanted to know what ICQ was about, so I signed up. I know nothing about the possibilities.

Fussy, I've never used IRC but I assume it is similar. In fact I've never used ICQ before this but one of the other Knights suggested we try to set one up for get togethers and stuff.

Jim, we haven't been able to get all of the Knights signed up so we haven't had another meeting since the last one on Pogo.

Nezha, ICQ is a chat and meeting program for the internet. So I take it you don't play online chess then? Wow, I wouldn't be playing any chess at all if it weren't for the internet.

Margriet, blog comments are good but it's kind of hard to get everyone on the same page for a little Q&A sometimes. Our first meeting was really useful for me anyway. I don't know how the other Knights felt about it.

Tempo, it's quite interesting. If you have ever participated in a online message board, ICQ utilizes a lot of the same concepts. If you check the group I've put up some polls as a test. Feel free to post comments and questions to get the group going. We can also schedule meetings in the meeting room for private get togethers if anyone was so inclined.
