CALCnet Chat! is a multi-user chat program written for Doors CS 7.1 and later. It takes advantages of the powerful CALCnet 2.2 networking protocol for TI graphing calculators and the Doors CS GUI API to offer a small yet powerful program. This 2KB program lets you chat with one, one dozen, or one thousand other users at once over CALCnet or globalCALCnet. It has already been used for conversations over 300 miles using gCn, demonstrating its versatility and power. Among the features offered are inter-calculator chatting via CALCnet, an integrated users list, intelligent, real-time detecting of new calculators arriving and old calculators leaving, the ability to change (and remember) your username, and much more. Chat! joins such venerated Doors CS-powered programs as Document DE 7 and mobileTunes 3.1 in offering a powerful, ground-breaking application in a sleek, svelte package. Please load CALCnet Chat! onto your favorite graphing calculators, especially if you have a CALCnet hub handy (but even if you just have two calculators connected with a unit-to-unit I/O cable) and let us know about any bugs you find!

With the invaluable help of Thomas "Elfprince13" Dickerson and Shaun "Merth" McFall, gCn is moving along swiftly; the Linux, Windows, and MacOS clients are all nearly ready for a beta release. Look for more news on this project in the very near future.
