Valter, thanks for all of your hard work here!

is it maybe possible to disable the misc.php?do=cchatbox function and simply include the chat on a custom page?

[Suggestion] - Time Space Saver

Valter...

Thanks again for all your hard work. This chat truly is a jewel (aside from the CMS issues - wink)...

I have a suggestion for saving some space...
In an old ASP chatbox I used to have, instead of displaying the time next to the user's name, it displayed a clock image whose "title" was set to the time.
User, if curious of the posting's time, would just hover over the clock icon to see, and this would save some posting space.
