Our live, instantaneous discussions continue on SCREENchat. On Monday,
September 23, 8:00 p.m. CDT, we will be having a discussion on _ID4_,
provisionally titled: _Bigger than Ben Hur_. This will be a free-form
chat that will be a good introduction to SCREENchat and a warm-up for
next week's discussion with scriptwriter George Wolfe on screenwriting.
All are welcome and there is no charge for using SCREENchat.
Additional information is available at:
SCREENchat uses the technology of *both* IRC and the World Wide Web to
facilitate discussions about film/TV studies.
Okay, So How Do You Start?
There are two ways to enter SCREENchat:
  1.  Using a World Wide Web browser that can handle Java
      applications (e.g., Netscape Navigator 2.0, Microsoft Internet
      Explore 3.0.).  If your browser doesn't do Java, then you
      cannot use this method--but you could probably upgrade to a
      (free) browser that does do Java.
      Connect to for more information.
  2.  Using an IRC client (e.g., PIRCH for Windows and Ircle for Macs)
      Connect to (port 6667), join channel #SCREENchat.
      Note:  Unlike "regular" IRC, this channel will only work if you
      are connected to the IRC server at
