    SUPRISE: Chat room!

    This is going out via email too!

    Hello all!

    Ever since the creation of Mystic Wicks lots of members have bugged me off and on about a chat room. Most of you know my feelings about chat rooms and that for
    learning they are really not the best medium to implement, thats why we went with a forum type atmosphere.

    Well, after quite a bit of consideration...and after Semele getting on my case for some time I have decided to open up a chat room. Now, I couldnt use the
    resources on my server for any kind of java chat. So, instead I spent a few dollars to secure a channel on irc. If you know what irc is and how to use it then you
    can come and join the channel on efnet. The channels name is #mysticwicks. But first, read on a little bit.

    About rules. Mystic Wicks is a family oriented place for learning and discussion. We always try to keep thing fairly clean and mannered. Realize that a chat room
    is a completely different animal and as such, it will be treated differently. The atmosphere of discussions in the chat room will be a little more relaxed. All
    that we ask is this:

    1. No flaming. Dont insult each other.
    2. No cybersex in the channel. (You know what Im saying here)

    Thats it. If you know how to get on irc. Then jump on EFNET and head to #mysticwicks. Its for fun.

    Now, for all of you who have no idea what is going on. I am going to attempt to help here.

    First, if you are using windows I would suggest you go here:

    http://mirc.com/

    Download the program called mIRC and read some of the documents. They are there for a reason.

    If you go here:

    http://mirc.com/irc.html

    You will see some links to other IRC programs. Feel free to try them!

    Installing the program should be very easy. After the installation you will want to open the program and connect to the irc network. There are many different irc
    networks and most programs seem to default to dalnet or undernet. You will want to change this to EFNET! Then you will want to choose a server, usually the program
    will list quite a few. Pick one and connect! When you are connected you will want to join the mysticwicks channel. The programs for connecting to irc usually have
    a little command line where you can enter commands. Type: /join #mysticwicks and you will enter the channel. Then you can chat.

    If you have any problems then please head to Mystic Wicks (http://www.mysticwicks.com) and go to the 'problems' forum and post about it there. We will work with
    you to get you connected.

    Thats all folks. I hope that this chat room becomes a cool hangout and a fun place for everyone. We just want to make everyone happy!

    Enjoy! See you in the Community, oh and the chat room!

    Blessings,
    mol and Semele

    Wow. . . You realize that when I check this out tonight, it'll be the first time in years that I've been on IRC?

    Here's hoping I can find a good EFNet server tonight. . . ^^;

    Faith is easy -- until the moment you actually need it.

    "Since when are facts subjective?" - Athena_Nadine

    "Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all convictions, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity."

    W.B. Yeats, "The Second Coming"

    Hehe. Join the club. I just jumped on last week and it had been probably 5 years or so...

    Took me a little while to 'relearn'.

    *chuckles* I haven't been in a chat room for a long time either....oh goodness. :D Hope it's not as hard to get in as it was the first time I did it.

    Course, at that time the only technical help I had was a guy who's native language was Flemmish.
    Oh Noz Oppression!
    Because life is so much more exciting when you're being persecuted.

    Your - the possessive form of you

    You're - a contraction of "you are"
