Chat issues solved

Some of you might have had problems accessing the Bambuser chat lately. We solved the problem today so you should be back in the game now. Sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.

Adobe recently released version of their flash browser plugin. From this version on, Adobe started enforcing their new more restrictive security policies regulating how a flash application is allowed to talk back to servers. The Bambuser chat widget happened to be affected as it is flash based and depends on usage of sockets when communicating with the chat server. Since Adobe does not push out updates automatically, we did not get reports of the problem right away.
