First time here? Check out our Rules of Play.


To test and increase our knowledge; to enjoy friendly banter with other players; and to score as many toaster points as possible! We do not ban players for the occasional expletive or humorous sexual banter. We would like to keep the actual game times as clean as possible, however, out of respect for people of all ideologies and moral standards.

We always welcome new hosts and scorers. If you'd like to host a game, either a 'once-off' or on a regular basis, please email Hez to be added to the schedule. Hez also has a number of pre-written quizzes, if you'd like to host but don't want to write a quiz.

Points are awarded for both hosting and scoring. If you enjoy playing, please consider helping with scoring or hosting.


From: biscuit - Oct. 28, 2015 - And the saga continues.

From: BobC - Oct. 28, 2015 - Parachat responded: "The disconnections and inability to connect would be consequences of the ongoing distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack against our company. Although our existing infrastructure will seamlessly defend and mitigate the vast majority of attacks so their impact is negligible to our customers and end users (as you are accustomed), this attack has had a different vector. We are actively working on bolstering defenses. Thank you for your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience the attack has caused." We'll see what that means tonight.

From: BobC - Oct. 28, 2015 - Thanks Bis. I see Heatherly just logged in, too. I can't find any general outages or problems reported. But I took yours and other info and submitted a ticket to ParaChat to see if they have any insight. The fact it happened to 4 people at the exact same time seems to point to some sort of network issue and not java related. Hopefully no issue tonight.

From: Heatherly - Oct. 28, 2015 - I had the same success/fail rate as Biscuit - and am able to log in again today (Wednesday) afternoon. I'll try to check in tonight! :)

From: biscuit - Oct. 28, 2015 - Bob - could not re-enter room after being kicked off Monday night. Tuesday morning, was able to enter chat room but Tuesday night, once again, could not enter. Java symbol just went round and round, ParaChat display never appeared (sometimes it does, sometimes not); screen name and connect button never appeared. This morning (Wednesday) was once again able to enter chat room. I guess, at least for me, ParaChat is only working the day shift!
