sorry hit the send button before i was done replying...

i want a chat that probly will be reinventing the wheel- though of  
course I'd love to grab code similar to lingr or moreso campfire but  
I don't see that type of project in works by anyone else, looks like  
they gave up and said use lingr or campfire for their purposes.  I'm  
a part of 6 other developers that are developing an all encompassed  
app to surpass what current bible resources on the web currently  
offer- my portion that pulled me into the group was my bible study  
online.  Currently I use lace but the ajax is too slow and requires  
too much server talk and it goes into overflow- whereas all the ruby  
implementations i've seen are incredible and allow for scalability of  
larger groups of people!  (more than 7 unlike lace that starts  
getting clunky).  The chat is very important and i'd like to  
integrate it so that its both a group chat and offers IM capabilities  
in ruby.  Sure it'd be great if i could offer the ability to connect  
through existing chat plugins such as jabber/irc/google/etc.  But  
baby steps- I just need an initial chat to start off with that is  
similar to campfire/lingr as that's my approach that I'm wanting to  
take and add customization after that.

Any help is appreciated.

Let go, and let GOD!
Robert
