Unstable chat - regular boots?   Chat

Started 7/31/17 by edtNZ; 6717 views.

HI gunter,

After months of stable chatting Delphi has gone pear shaped on me over the last few days.

I chat in Seniors Hideaway and Rockin at the dragons lair

I get booted regularly for no apparent reason?

Today it happened 3 times in one hour and over the last 3 days I was booted 4/5 times in a session.

MY ISP connection is quite stable, I dont have issues with any other websites.

The error code displayed is usually something like this....

Chat disconnected. (Code 1006). Retrying in 83

Other chatters in Seniors Hideaway are having similar issues, I have to say possibly because they chat on phones, but not always?

Win10 all current updates i3 CPU 4G ram Chrome browser with zeta chat

Any ideas on this one? gunter

Regards from a cold wet winters day in New Zealand edtNZ

UPDATE: I run CCleaner dayly, it just cleaned 45 Chrome cookies off my desktop PC.

UPDATE : Trying Firefox and zeta for a few hours to see if its more stable than Chrome?

Which Chat are y'all using - Zeta should be the best option. 

let us know if the browser makes a difference ...

Hi Gunter,

Yes am using zeta.

Things are a tad more stable with Firefox though I have still been booted with that.

Will sit out my afternoon in Seniors Hideaway using Firefox and zeta and see what happens?

Will update you later.

Thank You Regards edtNZ

I'm not sure if this is related but I have been noticing more disconnects with the Live Story feature. (Windows 10 and 7 with Firefox)

Hi Kidmagnet and Gunter,

I chatted in Seniors Hideaway in my afternoon (Late evening EST) using Firefox and zeta and only got booted  twice...moved to Rockin at the Dragons Lair late in my afternoon with the same browser/zeta chat combo and got booted once in the first 30 mins of being in chat.

SO.... my opinion is that Firefox is more stable than Chrome but it doesnt entirely solve the problem?

UPDATE: Kakes the room owner at Seniors Hideaway convinced me to use Firefox, so after sorting a bookmark issue I am trying FF today for chat. Will report back later in my day.

I noticed that there is only one of me now :)

You are not alone.  There are others experiencing the same thing but no matter how much I try to get them to post here, they remain silent. They figure I will post it for them.  Sighs ..... the problem still exists.

Sorry Kakes - I should have been clearer... I meant I was not ghosting back in as kidmagnet2, kidmagnet3 and I was only referring to the Live Story when uses chat components.
