yeah it works quite well but like you said it's a little slow as there's a lot of script in the back that doesn't need to be there. i'll clean this off in a few weeks. had a little chat with belfast earlier via the online chat!
I only have it turned on during the day but when it's on, people can go on the website and chat with me. It's linked to my Google Talk account which is similar to MSN but I can get it on my iPhone for when I'm out. Try it tomorrow if you want - it's on from 9am.
