Sometimes if people don't log out the right way it still says they're in there. (I think you have to click the log out button on the chat page. Just closing your browser keeps you logged in I think.)
That chats are still scheduled at the times on the front page, but it's usually only Phil and Sarah who come all the time
. Occasionally other people pop in and out, but I can't remember the last time there was a big 5 or 6+ person chat. The old chats were fun though. Maybe one could be scheduled soon that everyone commits to.
