Online study group for botany/horticulture students

Post by botanygirl » Thu Dec 13, 2007 3:38 pm

Hi, We have a voice/text chat room which is open to students who want to study/revise together.
Here is how to reach it:

1. Go to http://www.paltalk.com
2. Download Paltalk Scene
3. Once installed get a username and log in
4. Find me by going to Actions>Find a Pal> type in 'Ephemeral_Eve'
5. Add me to your pal list
6. Right click on my name and send me a message (either online message or offline message - which I will receive when I log in)
7. When I log in I will add you to my pal list and invite to our room which is open most evenings between 8-10pm GMT

Hope this makes sense. Any questions feel free to ask here or pm me.

Hope to see you there.

NO, because not everyone can use AIM on their computer, including me.

Why won't it work on your PC. The requirement seem minimal? Maybe your harddrive has a lot of spyware or something that prevents you from using AIM. Try running Spybot or Windows defender.

Okay.

Yeah, I tried downloading it and everything, but it just wouldn't work. It took me ages to get MSN and MySpace IM.

I don't mean to state the obvious, as I am not trying to come off condescending, but have you defragged in awhile? Your PC may need a little drive maintence, as well as some other things. Might I suggest you visit http://pcpitstop.com/
Run the free checkup, it may help clear up some issues on your PC. Well, that is all I can suggest.

I actually just got everything reset including my connections and well, pretty much everything. I guess it's just because it's not the best. lol. And don't worry you don't sound condesending.

Perhaps some ports are block...umm you can just open an account and use meebo(interfaces with AIM). No installation needed.

Also apparently gmail(gtalk) has the same interfacing function now too.

I didn't think of that. Blocked ports. A firewall program like Zone Alarm could cause trouble. I got rid of it once I started using a router. But if you are using a firewall, you may have to add permissions for new sw.
