Hello,

We DESPERATELY need a wonderful php-based chatroom that functions FAST, no long delays between entering text and it appearing.  The only real "special" feature we need is private chats.  Anything else is gravy.  Please, if you know of one, point us to its URL.

Many thanks,

Yunkaa

I've heard that X7 performs okay, but I haven't any first hand experience.

You can find a list of PHP chat scripts at hotscripts

Hi aolXFT,

THanks so much for the reccomendation.  THAT'S what we're looking for... if antone has heard or seen a specific good one, PLEASE, PLEASE post that name.  Going to check X7 now and, again, thanks so much for your tip!  Those little things you experts hear can really bail us out now.

Best wishes,

Yunkaa

Also,

We could use Perl.  So, if you know of one in Perl, PHP, even ASP... please let us know what you've seen or heard.

Many thanks,
