Nick, I can answer that. During MW DX seasons about 5 or 6 years ago, I was a regular -- almost nightly -- visitor to the #mwdx room on Starchat.net. About 2 years ago, I attempted to get back onto it, and was unsuccessful, as was Shawn Axelrod in Winnipeg (I think it was due to Starchat being powered by Java, which was having some sort of security issue at the time). Just for grins and giggles, I tried again this evening, and could not even get past Starchat.net's homepage. When I typed "mwdx" in the search page, it wasn't recognized as a room. So Starchat.net isn't an option anymore, at least not for me.

A couple years ago, I found librairc.net/chat, and was able to get #mwdx going as a room there. I did let a few folks know about it, and some, like Shawn and longtime IRCA member Tom Laskowski in South Bend, Indiana, were able to find their way onto it. Others could not, so I gave up pursuing it.

Tonight, however, I have found something that I think will pass muster. One simply goes to librairc.net's sister page, http://www.chanops.org. Once there, you'll see a homepage with a pair of fields -- one for a nickname and one for a channel to go to -- under "Think of a nickname..." Type in a nickname that you want to use, and you do NOT have to click the box underneath that says "I have a password". Then go down to the Channel field, type in #mwdx, and click on the Start button. THAT should get you in.
And the best part is....no registration required!

Crossing his fingers and hoping this will work,

Amen, or Gawd Forbid... or...

Facebook... Be Gone!

Yes, but membership in Facebook is.

Frankly, I prefer the idea of a stand-alone server and URL that was originally proposed. Nothing to sign up for, no ads, no people from high school, etc.

Iâve been deploying websites since 1994 and not a single one has ever had click bait, shills, Amazon links, cookies (beyond a login password) and no tracking BS.

Nothing more frustrating than looking at something on Amazon and then seeing it in FB when you pass through...

Exactly - which is exactly what Iâm doing.

Facebook is like a needy adult child that refuses to grow up - with its hand endlessly extended for more money, information, more of your time, more of your soul.

Iâve run up a free standing system.
No ads, no info grabs, no shills, no BS.

I canât browse FB (which I confess I do for around 2 minutes a day...) without hearing the voice of Samuel L. Jackson in my head - describing the experience in uniquely colorful language.

Mass media, social media, FOX news, and the like have turned us all into docile creatures - ready to swallow whatever weâre told. Good thing Iâm not bitter or cynical.
