Post AIM and the readers group meetings
You're still using the AIM I see. Now that there is a website, perhaps a nice IRC chat applet could be added. Easier, more accessible and available all the time. People can wander onto the website and jump in chat if they feel like it. I see that 60,000 character limit and feel the urge to challenge it

I'll have our webmaster look into it. Thanks for the suggestion.

There are a number of good web-based chat tools, many of which allow archiving etc. The platform the THS site and the forum were moved to is very fast and very capable - I urge you to look into self-hosting the chats for many reasons.
