Thanks, everyone. :-)
I specifically meant the links attached to people's usernames. I tried 'Spaw's (wanted to see the Possum), and Katlaughing's and one other, and they didn't lead to anything. I was hoping they lead to personal pages. I know they're out there somewhere!
As for the chat, I think I dumped IRC when AOL acted up...don't know a thing about Java. So maybe I just don't have the components I need for chat. I just uninstalled ICQ because it conflicted with AOL IM and I couldn't uninstall IM (wouldn't let me), but I'm going to upload it again in a few days as an experiment, so I'll give the ICQ # a try.
I've got IE4 as my browser, and I have not figured out yet how to see code with it. That was the biggest thing I liked about Netscape, but no Netscape here for now.
