Yes, the chat is gone temporarily. It is little used, but puts the server under heavy load weather it is used or not. You may notice that the site is running a bit smoother without it.
No worries, it will be back soon, I am looking into other options. :3

Something we can connect into via external clients I hope? That would be enough to make me at the very least idle in it

One thing people always forget about science: science never demands a rational explanation for anything. To science anything is possible... including magic... especially magic.

I still get loading hitches on pages. :P

Any chance we can get a page dedicated to a chat room instead?

It's not really page-loading, it's more like graphical hitches. Like it can fully load the page, but it'll freeze for a moment, then draw to the screen. Then I'll start scrolling and it'll freeze every few milliseconds until it catches up. Occasionally it'll do it while typing in the reply box, or when scrolling again, but it's not as bad as when the page first loads.

It comes up pretty quickly when it comes up, but it takes a bit of thinking before loading at all.

This is how long it took to load topic page, clicked on from the "Recent Topics" page:
Time to create page: 0.308 seconds

To load this reply page:
Time to create page: 0.245 seconds

To load The Northern Arizona Welcome Thread, going from "Recent Topics" and opening in a new tab:
Time to create page: 0.556 seconds

I open threads in a new tab, because going back and forth from the Recent Topics, to a thread, back to Recent Topics, to a new thread, takes too long. I just open several threads in new tabs, then can close each as finished, and open the next few threads in more new tabs. This is on a desktop, of course. I tend to stay away from the site when on my tablet, since that process is a bit awkward on it.

Okay, thank you for all the info, it is very valuable to me. It might be the way the site tracks the users. I will refine this and get back to you guys. Keep posting anything you notice here.
