Chat - update -- disabled for the moment

There is now a discreet little chat widget that appears only on the home page (look down at the bottom right corner after you log in).   It's currently only set up for one public chat room.  I'm currently trying to understand some of the ramifications, like whether this will actually scale, or if it is useful.  Also I want to understand the possible integration into Organic Groups, and community controls throughout the site.   Feedback is, as always, welcome.

Note that I have recently disabled chat on the site.  The current implementation of Drupal chat is pretty server intensive and causes an obscene amount of polling.  The developers of that module are apparently working on this, but I have disabled it in the meantime.  It was not really getting any noticeable use anyway.
