So what exactly is the solution for those who have a dynamic IP address. SBC DSL doesn't allow you to set your IP address unless, by chance, the one you want isn't taken... which is very very rare.

As of now, you would have to log off then log back on in order to have your fellows CCC's know when you are online, you would have to message everyone on your list... pain in the ass especially if you aren't really looking to talk to someone... I have a suggestion to remedy that:

When your client first loads, and whenever it notices an IP come online, it should automatically send a flag to every online IP just to give it a "heads up" that it is there.

In my client, I am working on an option for letting the system know that someone has a dynamic IP. Rather than this person being indexed by their IP, they will be indexed by nick, and when they do come online and a flag and nick are sent to mind from their computer, that IP address will be temporarily assigened to their nick.

Let me know what you all (the 3 of you anyway) think of this.

I actually think its a really good idea, we are so far being pretty set on people with static ip's and lack of routers. So i think that is a good idea for the dynamic ip problem.

as for the routers, the only solution i can think up involves owning the router you are behind and being able to write executable files for it (ie a linux server/router/firewall)

Anybody can be cool, but AWESOME takes practice.

So I'm just gonna throw it in mine as flag 15, and since mine is the only prog that will have it for now, i'll make an option to turn it on and off. The way I'll put it in is the first time a user is verified to be online I will send a flag 15 then the user name and thats it. If 15 is used for something i don't know about or yall want a different flag lemmie know.

I wouldn't assume we are trying to stay under 10, but we want to fill the first 10 before we go to more =P right?
