Things to tackle this week:

   - Get the conversation window showing html as its meant to be
   - Get the chats working (as opposed to just one to one conversations)
   - Improve the layout of the conversations window

   - Fix my windows build machine which I have fallen into dll hell with

   touch screens don't have that - I use a desktop touch screen)
