yep ya right ya barred. The chatrooms only for experienced anglers. And people who dont inject heroin into worms through a syringe. We need to treat the worms with respect they catch us big fish ( especially tench )LOL.
Occasionally the server for the Chat Room throws a wobbler but it is out of our control as it isn't ours. The message that you got Gf is when the server is down and the room's software is trying to find another port on the server to try accessing.
ChatRoom software connects you to a port on a server which is predetermined but will automatically look for another one if the connection can't be made. If the server is not responding the software will just keep looking.
