the main chat server no longer has a host now, if you would like to host it (and can keep it most of the time online) let me know.

i will try to keep it online as much as i can until i find a new host.

Updated the link in the first post with a new version.

New in 1.00:
- Fixed a bug in the file transfer when it wouldn't transfer files correctly sometimes depending on how bad the connection was and fixed some other important problems
- Improved private chat and private chat logging when users join and leave the chat server
- Giants servers now show in order by latency
- Added user registration to the server, this can be used by setting the client password from ChateX - Edit profile menu or using the /cpw command on the main chat window and it will save your name and password on the server. To remove your account from the server simply set the client password to nothing
- Added the players under the Giants servers
- ChateX attempts to retry now as well when it cannot connect to the chat server and can be disabled from Options

So now you can just start the program and leave it in the system tray, even if the main chat server isn't online then, it will automatically connect to it when it will be online.

I'm still looking for a 24/7 server.. I'm hosting it as much as I can, sorry about that.

I suppose the 24/7 server issue is the reason I can't connect?

(1) hack the russian ad servers.
(2) hook up a gerbil powered generator to the modem and desktop.
(3) pay the bandwidth costs to operate only on thursdays.

Well, you can't get gerbils on a Sunday (stores are closed), Monday and Tuesday just suck, the courts open new rape cases on Wednesday, Friday is trash day, and who wants to do anything on a Saturday?
