"MaxChat" is not as good a name as "Chat to the Max!". Somebody should get on that...

Looks like I'll be coming along. The question? Well, the details are secret but it is along the lines of Syrup and the legacy of NS's appearance on XKCD.

Also for your entertainment is the truly stunning song 'I'm a BarryMan, in a Barry land...'. I do have some proper lyrics to that one.

Is there a preferred time when we should connect to chat?
Because I know I'm going to forget to log on around 4, and I foresee problems with (I perceive) several dozen people attempting to connect at the same time.

Why are you blaming us? We had to have this at a time when Max was available. After all it's hard to have a MaxChat without Max.

CRAP! I'll be at my grandparents house all day! I might miss MaxChat! Don't get me wrong, I think my grandparents are insanely cool, but how many chances do you get to talk to a published author over the internet, having learned of him through using his website, after he hasn't done one of these in years?
