When the chatroom loads, that's the message I get. I'm running Firefox with flash installed (Finally!) Any ideas? Thanks!

oh no! I'd totally log out and then log back in. If that doesn't work restart your computer.

Happens to me every so often. I just wait a few minutes and it goes away. Usually it seems to happen if i get disconnected, or if i change rooms and it glitches. I've never had it last more than a minute or two.

There's also a glitch in our current system (server side) that causes this, and it can be permanent :D or rather, until the next server restart or chat system restart.

JimJimmers if it still won't let you in, please send me CC mail.

Not sure if this would help, but you could reset your DNS cache if the above suggestions (logging out, clearing cache and cookies, etc) don't work.

To reset/purge your DNS cache, open a command prompt, and type: ipconfig/ flushdns

You can also try renewing your IP address by typing the following into the command prompt (if flushing your dns doesn't work): ipconfig/ renew

Then try logging into chat again. :D

Ummm, because it's not a real thing? Seriously, trying to make your computer "flush" something? Tell me that's not hogwash. :p :D ;)
