Cat Chat

Cat Chat was the first Internet / JANET talker, created in 1990 by Chris Thompson, who used the name "Cat" on the talker. It was based on the LPMud server code and was hosted at the University of Warwick. It was later replaced by Cheeseplant's House.

Whilst the first talker was invented in 1984, until 1990 they were only available on small intranet services.

Famous quotes containing the words chat and/or cat:

    How it is I know not; but there is no place like a bed for confidential disclosures between friends. Man and wife, they say, there open the very bottom of their souls to each other; and some old couples often lie and chat over old times till nearly morning. Thus, then, in our hearts’ honeymoon, lay I and Queequeg—a cosy, loving pair.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    It is getting dark and time he drew to a house,
    But the blizzard blinds him to any house ahead.
    The storm gets down his neck in any icy souse
    That sucks his breath like a wicked cat in bed.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
