I think it would be great if we could get an online chat room going on here. Any thoughts or ideas, maybe?

I think this sounds like a wonderful idea. Before hand, you could have an agenda of topics to discuss and then make a date for the chat. What a fun way to meet other members, too :)

Not entirely sure. Thought it sounded fun though. Everyone having a glass of wine or wodka. Shooting the breeze.

Oh....Wait.... Sometimes we do that on the Tickle Thread.

It's kind of like yahoo messenger. You can talk live in real time kinda like talking on the phone, but instead just online with us folks here on the website.

I remember doing that once on a trivia game site. It was full of 12 year old boys typing "penis" and " show us your boobs". Our chat room would be more highbrow with discussions about gas and poop. :P

:P Hopefully we wouldn't be that childish but thinking about discussing poo and gas just has me cracking up.

I used to be paranoid to read the forum because I thought it WAS a chat room!! I'm not that tech savvy and I didn't know the difference between a forum and a chat room...Probably gluten paranoia had me back then, but I ain't scared of y'all no more....so I'd be in!

Chat rooms can be a pain. I used to run one. It was fine for a while, then the kids found it. I didn't have the time to babysit it all the time.

As I see it there are two options. Make it for registered users only or have moderators around the clock.

Also free chat rooms seem to be hard to come by these days. But you never know. Maybe it could happen.

I know some of the forums come with chatroom software. Not sure if this one does. When I ran a graphics forum, there was an option to have a chatroom which we sometimes used. The only way a person could get access was by being a member of the forum so we did not have the worry of outside people coming in.

I sent a question asking about it to admin. Scott sent me back a note saying that he's looking into it. Now, let's keep our fingers crossed!

Hi Everyone,

Although I am not sure at this point whether I will be able to add in a chat feature, did you know that you can add your chat info into your personal profile, then connect with other users who do the same and are online? For example, in your profile area you can add the following type of accounts:

AIM

MSN

Website URL

ICQ

Yahoo

Jabber

Skype

and then you can connect to others vie live IM chat who have also put in their info...just a thought. Basically live IM chat requires a large amount of server resources, and most of the larger internet companies give these services away for free now, so perhaps you can test it out and let us know how it goes?

Take care,

Scott

I'm thinking even if we couldn't have an open time 24/7 to chat, perhaps a scheduled time every week?! I think it would be great to be able to chat real time!!

Don't need scott to set one up. You can download an IRC client (mIRC for you windows users) and join/create a chat room on any of several dozen IRC (Internet Relay Chat) networks. I looked around a couple years ago when I was first DX and was really surprised that there was no #celiac or #glutenfree on EFNet. I used to help OP several singles chat rooms years ago. When I was single. :)

Yes, and on top of this if you go into your personal profile for this forum you can enter your gmail, yahoo, msn, etc., instant message info and then you can connect with whomever you like via live chat, as long as they have also entered their info.

Take care,

Scott

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
