    I was up for a while last night so I came here and noticed there were 5 people in Live Chat around 3am EST ! :shock:
    Don't you sleep? lol
    I thought about joining in but I can't carry on a conversation at that time of night... :)

    I'm up all times of night and see there are people on there too I have looked but did not chat with them. I wouldn't know where to begin to talk to anyone there. I don't want to interfere with them.

    Parts of Australia are 14-17 hours ahead of USA, and I'm not sure about England or other parts of the world that are members here.

    That's what is so nice. We always have instant answers day or night no matter where we live!

    As far as I know, it's "open" - but there are "regulars" on/in chat - so one can feel like an outsider/intruder when one drops in - sort of like tuning in to a soap opera for the first time - takes a while to figure out who - what - why. And sometimes there are three or four "conversations" going on at once - took me a while to figure out how to follow that.

    You won't be interferring with them...just 'walk into the room' and see what's going on. I'm sure someone will say hello to you!

    They are not private private conversation. . . if people want that they can make their own room right there in the chat room feature.

    Try it you might like it.

    Don't hesitate to jump in even just to say Hello - you might be surprised one "chat" night you will feel comfortable to bring up a subject and get great responses.

    try it! I did when I forst joined here and it was a laugh a minute, for me anyway. My typing isn't that good, my brain is a little slower than I'd like at times, but everyone treated me so nicely. They just told me to overlook misspelled words, they would, and they would figure it out. There were times I got to laughing so much at my mistakes I had to stop or wet my pants.

    Sometimes when there's several conversations going on at once it gets very confusing. I've "popped" in and said hi once in awhile. But to answer your question about sleeping---not so much. I sleep sporatically--a few hours here and there due to achy joints and needing a potty. Once I wake up it's usually several hours before I can go to sleep again. But also there's so many different time zones that to some our 3am is mid afternoon.

    I've dropped in a time or two, but can't figure out what the conversation is about so I quickly exit.

    It's nice to know that you can talk to people if you wake up during the night. I've never done it b/c I never wake up but if I did I would like to be among friends :)
    I love this place!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D:D

    I am usually up at 3:00 am, but my typing skills are such that I don't feel comfortable 'saying' anything. The one time I tried, I was warmly welcomed.

    My feelings exactly.
    Several others have reminded me that my 3am is not their 3am....lol.
    I guess I was REALLY not firing on all cylinders when I started this thread. I'll have to remember to wake up before typing!!!

    You really should try it and you would NEVER be intruding. Some of us do check in on chat regularly so I guess you could call us "regulars" but I certainly wasn't a regular the first time I popped in back in August! Everyone is SO sweet and so helpful. I originally went in to get help with a project and felt like I was interrupting....LOL. They were SO helpful. And Clem is correct, it can be a laugh a minute some nights!! I LOVE IT!!

    But anyway too bad I don't chat cause 0300 to me, is like the middle of the day to some of you , I am a night shifter and stay on a night shift schedule even on mty days off!

    I think England is 7 hours ahead of us. My nephew is in the Navy and stationed over there.

    I popped in about 3:30 this morning also, actually wondering what in the world people were doing up so late. I then looked at the locations. Half here, half yonder. I was going to do a thread on when you can't sleep, what do you do?
    I was afraid you all would think it to be to nerdy so I didn't do it. I have bad nights at times and can't sleep. I wake up with my arms feeling like thy'er about to fall off. So I get up and look around here. I stopped in but never said anything...just wondering.
