    Hi there, I was pointed to this site by dixi_ms on another forum and thought I'd stop in and say hello as I meet the criteria :D

    I'm 35, married 10 yrs, mother of 2 boys aged 7 and 4 and both avid gamers like their parents. I work as a Medical Laboratory Technologist with our lab's computer system IRL, and online I have many 'jobs' within the gaming community, most involving female gamers. I've been running Gaming Girls for almost 2 yrs now and I help moderate WomenGamers for about a year now. I'm also very active on many gaming sites in varying degrees and it's always great to find a new community :)

    Anyway, I just really wanted to say hello and introduce myself.

    so .. Hi :lol:

    stop in and say hi yourself, all gamers regardless of gender are welcome :D

    Oh, I also noticed I didn't give any gaming history (I blame not enough coffee yet). I'm generally an FPS player, Quake3 and mods, CoD's and mods, SWAT4 , ET and mods, and Tribes:Vengeance are probably what I"ve played the most lately (I'm hoping to be able to get Q4 and CoD2 soon, but need a new vid card first :(). Lately tho, I've been totally hooked on Guild Wars and is what I've played the most since last May (it was my mommy's day gift).

    G'day Calisto.
    Firstly thank you for dropping by and welcome. :D

    Secondly, if you'd like to become a member of TOG, you've omitted the FAQs and AUP bit out of your post/application. Once you've checked that little box (so to speak). Once you've done that, the Admins will be along with their magic TOG stick to grant you membership.

    Hi and feel free to visit the Call of Duty division to say hi (you'll find us in the forums. And most importantly all the female gamers are welcome to play the COD servers and if you have COD2 we have 2 servers running that. WE currently have 2-3 woman members in our squads.

    Hello Calisto, Nice to see ya here and I hope to see ya in my sights soon.:D I hate to correct Wombat but we have 3 servers on the N. America side. 2 All weapons and 1 rifle server. If ya send me a PM I'll send ya the IPs of all 3 servers, plus the TS info. :cool:

    I just checked out Gaming Girls and I must say the articles are very well written!!! I wish I could find a Female FPS gamer so I could take that huge step of SETING UP A HOME NETWORK!!!lol My ex-wife HATED my gaming, felt it was childish.:( Keep up the great work with Gaming Girls Calisto!!!:)

    well thanks :D I try my best. I can't play CoD2 yet, but I'm hoping to correct that problem soon. As soon as I get it, I'll get those IP's for sure (esp the rifles one - love the rifles :cool:)
    I believe Belisama who is new here too has played that. I never got much past the demo's myself, not out of not liking it, but out of too little time to play everything I'd like too :(
