3 things so far....

Change the timeout in the Lobby.

Cursor gets "lost" when the chat frame refreshes

which can happen when you're in the middle of

typing a sentence.

You have to mouse back to the text are to continue

typing.

And you still can't change the font size ;)

This chat module is provided to us by Userplane | Flash Chat and Video Chat Software - Web Chat Scripts for Enterprise Messaging, Instant Messaging Software , and because they allow us to use their technology for free they place their ads within the module. I'll see about having them place ads other than dating....:wink:

I'll look into the other issues.

The time out has been increased from 10 minutes to 30 minutes. After 30 minutes of inactivity, your session will be timed out and you will need to reopen the chat session.

Also adjusted the message input and number of characters, which may have been causing an issue.

No way to set the idle to indefinite?

What a few of us have been doing on the temporary IRC chat room (while you guys get a handle on QC chat) is staying connected while we're at our workstations, but there's sometimes blocks of 1-2 hours of inactivity.

I was just chatting with ajmboy in the new chat room and experienced the disappearing cursor...but you could have also been making your updates at the time.

I'll keep looking for updates....

Thanks!

I'll set the inactivity to 60 minutes for now and let's test it out over the next week. How exactly is the cursor causing an issue? Do you start typing and it dispappears? Or is it from not typing, and after a while it disappears.

Currently there is no text size change available using this module. I've notified the programmers.

It looks like the frame is refreshing....and that's when you loose the cursor.....and yes, you can be in the middle of typing something when it disappears.

Re: Font size....

I know I can change the resolution on my monitor to increase font size....which ain't happenin' :wink:

Ok...I think I see where the disappearing cursor stems from...

It's when the ads at the bottom of the screen refresh.....

I wasn't seeing the ad banners earlier....I am now.....

I've been notified that there is an issue with ads causing this for users using windows XP and Firefox browser. I'm using IE7 and the cursor does not disappear.

What browser and version are you using?

USERPLANE might be working on something. The chat actually runs off their servers to minimize server load on our end. (This is one of the reasons why we went with them). They've identified Firefox issues on their end. Try using IE and see if it happens to you.

I'm sure they will resolve it because they also power chats on sites like:

IE's not happening in my lifetime.....

That's why I use Firefox ;)

I'll deal with the FF issues for now...and if I don't like them, my choice not to chat...it's not the end of the world.....

Much thanks for the effort and to listening to your membership!

Modified the LIVE CHAT to be embedded within the page and speed up authenticating users.

The LIVE CHAT links have been adjusted. You will no longer be brought to the MiniChat page and then have to join the chat. As soon as you click LIVE CHAT, you will be brought in.

Please test. Thanks.

We just enabled the A/V dock (Audio & Video) . Please test. Once you are in the LIVE CHAT, click on the bar under the text input.

Not sure how functional it's going to be. Please let us know if you like it or not.

Has anyone tested the Audio or Video? It's a neat feature if you have a mic or web cam.

Click A/V Dock at the bottom of the chat...Just tested again, works well.

We've gone back to a modified version of our original chat software since Userplane chat is not being supported moving forward. We've also added a block on the main page to see who is in chat. This chat does not provide web cam chatting but should work error free.

You can clear your flash cookies if you see an old theme or it's not working for you, by visiting Adobe at: Adobe - Flash Player : Settings Manager - Website Storage Settings panel

Just press delete all sites in the settings box. This will force all flash objects to be reloaded from websites. Shouldn't be an issue except for some of our old timers...if they are using the same browser and never cleared their cookies..:wink:

      We went for a ride in the day and enjoyed a good old fashioned "North of Seven" party with a few local bands that evening.
      I decided to mesh the two together.

      Got two 3 wheelers. One a 85; 250es the other around 83 (not sure the year) 200es. Neither of them are getting any fire. The manual says to test across the two terminal going into the coil to measure the resistance. I checked and both read 0.0. No resistance. The 200 came with two other coils which Ive never used. Tested them and got 0.0. Ordered one off Ebay for the 250. Came from a cycle shop. High tension wire doesn't look to good. Tested its terminal and it reads 0.0. I also have a 400 Kawasaki 4 wheeler that ran when parked (water cooled with a cracked head or sleeve. So it hasn't been used in awhile) I tested its coil. Got 0.0. Im pretty sure that coil is good. I then tested a round can coil on my old tractor just for fun. It did show some resistance.
      So where do I go from here? I need to find out if that coil from Ebay is bad so I can send it back. The high tension wire on it is just about enough to make me want to send it back any way. Any help on how to test these coils would be appreciated. Then I could move onto the other parts of the firing system.

      Hey, I joined the site and thought these videos may be helpful if you ever run into 4wd problems with your Yamaha.






    • By oleblue
      I just launched a new site that deals with all and any problems with the 4wd system on Yamahas. I have how to videos for testing the servo, disassembling the servo, replacing and purchasing the servo (motor only), testing relays, and testing the push button switch.
      I also have a link to download the 4wd testing portion of the service manual.
      Check it out at 501parts.com - Yahama Servo Motors
      Let me know if I can help.
      Heres a few of the videos and pics

      For those techno folks out there!!!! How does one test the starter relay on a quad??? I am told that you can not test it unless it is on the unit??? @ the highest level one could say if the quad does not start the relay is shot BUT how does one test it electronically??? with a meter???
      Thanks BOB
