The OC aka Old Chat aka Original chat, required the flash plugin that was bought by adobe and is now being killed by adobe and several other haters that want people using other technology. Given that flash is now being officially disabled and removed by the major tech forces includes Windows, it's time that we said goodbye to the old chat and embraced newer technology that is different.
Since flash is being killed by the big tech companies – we are now moving towards a new chat system, read more about the Xirta chat we are trying to migrate to.
Be nice, follow the rules, have fun.
OC is dead – had been revived, and then was killed off via conspiracy of adobe, google and microsoft, among others (looking at you firefoz / mozilla) – but it had to cease working due to security concerns, energy usage and blah blah as Apple’s folks said some years ago when they decided not to support the flash code that was needed to run the OC.
