In This Issue:

<><><> Back to Chat!
<><><> How to Connect
<><><> Tidbits


<> Back to Chat!

WOW is pleased to announce that we have located a new chat server
that can meet our needs and have built our rooms. We are now
ready to get back BACK TO CHAT!

This special edition of The Weaver contains all the information
you will need to join us in our new home. If you have any
problems or questions, there will be help available on the WOW
message boards, or you can email updates@wowwomen.com :-D

<><> How to Connect

<> mIRC, Pirch, or Ircle

If you are using a chat client, such as mIRC, Pirch, or Ircle,
you can connect to our new server by entering this information:

Server: irc.darkmyst.org
Port: 6667

Once you are connected to the server, you can join #WomensSpace
or #LesbianSpace and chat away! :-D

<> Java Chat

If you were chatting using our java chat client, we have installed
a new java chat client that will take you right into our rooms!

To connect, go to http://www.wowwomen.com/wowchat.html and click
on java chat.

<> WebTV

Last, but certainly not least, we have arranged for a WebTV IRC
linked directly to our website! To enter our rooms using that IRC,
visit http://www.wowwomen.com/wowchat.html and look under the heading
for WebTV.

While we can't offer official support for other IRCs, you can connect
to our new server by changing the server information, provided the author
has included that option. The server information is:

Server: irc.darkmyst.org
Port: 6667

<><> Tidbits

<> Help is available

Help connecting to the new server is available in a number of places.
We recommend you visit our chat help section on the WOW website if
you need help changing or setting up your chat client. Detailed
instructions can be found at the following URLs:


Help can also be found on the WOW message boards, located at:


If you need more assistance than is available in those locations,
help is available by emailing feedback@wowwomen.com We HIGHLY
recommend that you check our website and message boards for help
before emailing, since emails have to be forwarded to the appropriate
WOW and may not be answered as quickly :-)

<> WOW Chats

WOW will be resuming our normal chat schedule as of 11pm tonight.
Please join us in WomensSpace for The Bar & Grill -

Sail in on the tradewinds and join MistyWOW & AuroraWOW at The
Bar & Grill. On the menu we offer light and casual chat, great
atmosphere, cool tunes on the jukebox, and warm tropical breezes
to soothe your tired mind! Relax and just drift with the tide. :-)

Hope to see you there!

Women's Suffrage T-shirts and Gifts


I put together a t-shirt and gift shop based on images of American history. I call is American Images -- My Dog Murphy's T-shirts and Gifts. My latest section is on Women's Suffrage. I have portraits of Mary Church Terrell, Susan B. Anthony, Lucy Stone, etc. Also included are postcards and cartoons from the movement.

I also have a WPA Poster section with a Women's Cancer poster from 1937 and, of course, Rosie the Riveter in the WWII section!

Along with each image I have written a short summary of its history. I'd appreciate it if you took a look at the site. It's at http://www.mydogmurphy.com/. If you like it, a link would be great. Thanks!

I'm OK National Message Center

I found a site that I think might help others in this time of tragedy and concern. It's a place where people who are stranded and perhaps can't reach their loved ones can post that they are safe and where they are. If you are concerned about a loved one, you can check here to see if they posted.


Blessings on everyone...

nunzy's post

I for another am getting tired of the rudeness in the room . the belittling of certian roomies, and the talking down to them. There is no reason to say anything to these roomies when it is in their personality it seems to be this way. They seem to make it a point to criticize everything that certian ones say. And alot of our good roomies are shy in nature and would never speak up, but they tend to leave also. rude jabs are taken out mostly on the quiet ones. which as you know , I am not quiet at all, but I do feel for them when they are embarressed by this . It is as if their opinions do not matter, and some are even asked if they are crazy for thinking that way. Never thought you had to think a certian way or have certian opinions to chat in this room. We all know how certian roomies can be. When they say stuff in the room , and when something is said back in defense, only then something is said...then it is more than likey said to take situation in 1/1. I try to get along with everyone in the room. I have never sat there and downed someone for thinking different than me. I just personally think that the bitterness between certian roomies are getting out of hand. If you don;t like someone, that is fine, but keep it to yourself, and don't try to drag others in the crap with you. I hope this can all be worked out. I really cherish the friends I have made chatting. It use to be such a fun room to go to full of laughs and different opinions. Now it is 50% or more snide remarks and bickering. I for one can do without the hassel. I won't sit anywhere and let anyone talk down to me, especially in a chat room.I hope this can be straightened out. They say misery loves company, but I for one do not need company that bad. Some of these people act like they dont want to get along with anyone. THey are miserable , so they think the rest should be too. This is just my opinion, and how I feel, but I can promise anyone reading this, that half the room feels this way also. Some are just peace keepers and others are too shy in nature to get involved. Others have already been shot down in the room for what they say, so why should they open up again? It is just amazing to me that grown women act like this with no regard or respect to other chatters. Hope we can get this worked out. If not, so be it. It will be a loss to alot of people. If I have said anything you don't agree with, I am open to replies. Email me if ya must. I will get back to ya. But I really do hope this mess gets straightened out. THere are alot of wonderful women in the room, and we all need a little support at times. We can be so good for each other. We don't need the hassel that goes with it though. thanks a bunch for your time..........uglygal..aka..tropicgal

I'm one of the peace keepers and try to get along with everyone. However, I'm finding it more and more stressful to sit through unhappy chats listening to put downs, inappropriate <and previously banned> language. In addition, what was once considered flirting <and also banned> is now taking place with same sex partners. It seems to me that, if it was wrong for male/female flirting, it should also be wrong for same sex partners. To condone this is setting up a double standard. These problems create hard feelings and people are leaving to chat elsewhere. This isn't my server, nor am I a WOW, but, I consider myself to be a welcome member of WS. But, even I have reached my end-point. Hopefully, these problems will be addressed and resolved. Ws has been a wonderful place for meeting wonderful people. I hope it continues.
