The reason why i chose some sort of buffer (the textfiles) is that we 
get a "history" of messages. When you start the client, it fetches all 
messages from this buffer and scrolls down to the last message. If you 
want to know what has been going on you just scroll up... (especially 
convenient if there are any current problems in the net that have been 
discussed before you entered the chat)

Well in Vienna´s chatroom there are seldom more than 6 people online at 
the same time (if at all), so i don´t think that would be a problem. But 
"private" rooms (which wouldn´t really be very private since all traffic 
is unencrypted and spread to everyone) have been proposed nevertheless 
;-) Don´t know about Germany though...
I think we should keep that option in mind for the design, but only 
implement it if it is really needed...
