Live Chat Area
As I sit here wondering around the site I wonder who else is online and how it would be nice to speak to them. I'm sure there used to be a chat client as part of Edugeek - but how about integrating one into the site?
I don't know how easy it is to do but this looked interesting: PHP chat software, Footer chat, In-page chat software | CometChat and it works on vBulletin.
I'm sure there are other methods around as well.
I both approve and don't approve of this...

On the other hand... Some staff here have a problem telling the difference between forums and chat rooms... Adding a chat room will:
A) Confuse them further
and B) make them try to get me fired for going on chat rooms... [despite the fact that it's work related and not the type of chat room they're thinking of.]
Think I've already mentioned it but I would be more than happy to set up permanent home on Quakenet IRC network which has an excellent web based chat system.
