I like it! As your docs say, it's very simple:
a site-specific chat facility. I love simple.
    My first wrinkle was not knowing how
gracefully to exit. I just closed the browser
session after noticing the record shows
other users have timed out--I guess my
user will time out, too.
    My second wrinkle is wondering how a
site manager might get notification when
users initiate a session: I'm thinking the
chat facility would be useful for user
support: e.g. i love sitting around doing
little dink stuff, and if someone connected
to the sf-lug site, i'd likely be available for
questions, if only i know that someone's
    Third wrinkle: how to set it up so that
there's an "admin not available" sign.
    Fourth wrinkle: find a chatbot that always
lives on the site and can provide some
conversation, possibly answer questions.
