 Introduction
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This archive contains my ASP chat application. Most other chat-applications works using "Cookies" but not this one. This allows you to run this chat without requiring to set a cookie on the client-machine; something some users will appreciate.
 
By using all files in this archive, you are actually able to set up and customise your own chatroom on your ASP enabled web site.
 
In order to make the chat work properly, you will have to add a couple of lines in your "global.asa" file. The lines below are also included in the downloadable package. You should insert them in the top of your file, i.e. not in any of the default defined Sub functions.

	<OBJECT RUNAT=Server
		SCOPE=Application
		ID=conquerChatUsers
		PROGID="Scripting.Dictionary">
	</OBJECT>

	<OBJECT RUNAT=Server
		SCOPE=Application
		ID=conquerChatRooms
		PROGID="Scripting.Dictionary">
	</OBJECT>

	<OBJECT RUNAT=Server
		SCOPE=Application
		ID=conquerChatMessages
		PROGID="Scripting.Dictionary">
	</OBJECT>

The lines above makes it possible to store currently logged in chat users, rooms and messages. We check this object every time we refresh the chat window page and kick out inactive users. If you do not have a 'global.asa' file use the one provided with this package. You have to place it in the root of your web server and not in the "chat" directory or where you place all the other files. You *have* to place this in the ROOT of your web server .. and *NOT* in the "chat" directory.
 
If this still does not work for you please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions available online at:

 Customize ConquerChat

 It is possible to customize ConquerChat in many ways. Many options are 
 available for you by simply enabling or disabling a flag from within the con-
 figuration file. The configuration file is named "inc.config.asp" and every
 option is described in details.
