I made a chatboard script that i use on two websites (http://nayco.free.fr ,
http://luxregina.free.fr )
One thing important to know is that you MUST NOT use a text file : When two
people write together, messages are scrambled and the script displays wierd
things ....
----> use SQL, as it's faster, easier to use, and has got no 'lock' problem
...

If you want my script ..... tell me !!
