Pay careful attention to the wording of the pop-up.
You DO want to TRUST the applet/content.
You do NOT want to block it from running.
The first pop-up will either ask you to trust the Applet, or ask you to block the content. Be careful to pay close attention to the pop-ups, they are a little confusing. If asking to trust, say "yes", if asking you to block, click "No".
You should receive a pop-up message asking you to trust the Java applet, please trust it ("Run"). If you give the wrong answer, the applet will not work.
If you are unable to run this Java applet, you may need to install or update your Java, or configure your web browser to allow Java applets to run.
Please see the Chatroom information page for some suggestions.
If you have a preferred IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client like Xchat, mIRC, or similar, please point it to:
