Try searching for pirch, mirc or irc also search for archie which lets you search for files on the internet, and then search for those irc names. For those that have webtv, they can go to my webpage at http://home.talkcity.com/basinst/musickey and use the chat4tv irc. This irc also lets them search for sites on the web while in chat, and they appear below the chat screen, just scroll down. This will allow chatters to access hurricane info while chatting, and move back and forth between chat screen and what ever central american site they searched for.
