I didn't try this the first time, but think I will now.  It's a bit annoying with it in a browser window since I sometimes hide my browser, but I don't want to hide the chat window.  smile

Hmm, okay, I tried it quickly and it worked (and it reminded me I didn't have a very good password.)  So, I changed my password, but now the program doesn't work, just comes up with a blank screen.  Maybe it doesn't know to prompt to enter a different password?

Thanks.

Will the previous client auto-update to this one, or do I have to download the new version manually?

None of the Macheist Chat clients worked for me so far, I double click and nothing happens...

Is there anything I can do to find where is the problem ?

I downloaded the chat client and it ticked my laptop off big time.  Guess I'll just wait "patiently" for the heist.


If you aren't using Dropbox yet and want to get it free using my referral...I'd be very grateful.

I'm still having so little luck with both the App and the Web chat itself... It takes a million years for it to actually connect, in fact most of the time it never even connects and times out. When it does connect, it's a matter of time before it disconnects and I have to start the process all over again. I don't know why this is happening, but it didn't happen with the first beta of the Chat. hmm
