The MGC Chatbox Evo is really easy to use

You can :
  1. Send chats : you just have to enter the text in the dedicated input field and then to validate it by pushing the return key ou by clicking on the OK button.
  2. Format the chats :
  3. once you un-collapse the chatbox formatting toolbar by clicking on the BBCode button, you have access to different formatting options for your chats. You can format a chat by selecting a part (or the totality) of it and then select one of the buttons/list. You can also add empty formatting tags by selecting nothing and clicking one of the buttons/menu thus allowing you to add the chat text afterwards between these tags.*
  4. Access to the different channels : you can have access to different channels restricted to only some usergroupds or for specifics use of the chatbox. The different channels are accessible from the buttons on the left of the chatbox.*
  5. Edit your chats (or others chats) : the edition of a chat can be done by a simple double-click on it.*
  6. Use specific commands : some commands can be accessible in the chatbox depending on the will of the administrator(s) of your forum. These commands let you execute specific actions of formatting, management, etc... You will herebelow the information on the command which are accessible to you. You must notice that you are not forced to use the command prefixes (/command_name) when you use them in the channel they are attached to (except in the general channel).*
* : Depending on the settings chosen by the administrator(s) of the forum, you might not have access to all these features.

    Is there really such a thing as a handheld electrolaser pistol in real life?...

    ...Of course it is a billion $ a piece so noone would own one but is the prototype operational?

    No, there is no such thing. The military as well as many law enforcement agencies would love to have one, but it's only a concept at this point. The problem is in the power supply. While it only takes a small battery to make a laser light, it requires considerably more power to make that same laser light do some physical damage. In order to make that light powerful enough to make a hole in a human being would require a power supply the size of a car. That would make it rather inconvenient to carry around. Taking it a step farther, to make a hole in a steel plate (like James Bond does with his watch laser) would require a power supply the size of a semi truck. Have fun carrying that around.

    How an electrolaser works:
    A very brief but high energy pulse, perhaps from a strobed ruby, Nd-Yag or Nd-glass laser which is simply of sufficient power to create the bloom effect on atmospheric gases - however briefly - creates a channel of ionized air from the weapon to the target. This is instantly followed by a high voltage discharge through that channel into the target. Think of it as a highly directional arc.

    All the laser does is pre-ionize the air to create a conductive path for the electricity. It's the subsequent electric arc which does the damage.
