The History of Wolf Home,
   

Wolf Home was developed as a 2D chat and has been around for nearly 10 years. It was created in 1999 by Underdog (Bill Underwood) partnered up with Gre7g to create a public accessible version.  The site was originally opened as a free access site and soon grew with popularity. This forced Underdog and Gre7g to turn Wolf Home into a fee-based site this was to offset the coast of expanding the band width to absorb the increased popularity (user base) of the site and to move the site to a self sustaining entity.

   It was decided that Wolf Home should still needed to maintain a free access to new users to get an initial experience with the Wolf Home chat environment. Wolf Home also had a large base of users who were underage, not working, in college and others who could not afford a pay account. This said the free accounts had limited access and limited privileges on Wolf Home. Those individuals that contributed to the site were given a choice on services based on a gradient pay for services. These services were the ability to have a private room, active scroll bar and personal poses.

Underdog and Gre7g developed a stronger partnership and the birth of "A Thousand Words Network of Kansas, LLC" and the site www.a1000words.net. The site design was to allow users to develop their own 2D graphic web site using the basic design of Wolf Home. The idea was to allow users a chance to design and develop their site environment and rules, manage their own membership and develop their own avatars.

The fall of 2004 www.a1000words.net suffered a serious program crash and with it damage to the Wolf Home database and could not be recovered or restored. Wolf home and its sister chat sites would have to be rebuilt from scratch. The spring of 2005 Kerfluffle, a member of Wolf Home and skilled programmer contacted the prior Wolf Home administration and brought hope to bring

the therian-based chat site a new lease in life. Kerfluffle’s approach was to develop a downloadable client various a web based interface. The client showed promise however, because of internal pressure the site was doomed. In the fall of 2005 Kerfluffle started withdrawing programming support for the site and in 2006 Kerfluffle notified the users and administration that Wolf Home would be shut down.

Trivia:

What are "Howls"?

Speaking of conventions... The first "Howl", the 1994 Harvest Howl, was organized by Smash Greywolf in Ohio. A Howl is basically a gathering in the flesh (or fur) of readers of AHWW to socialize, get to know one another, howl at the moon, leap over raging bonfires, and to generally share the camaraderie that exists amongst members of the cyber pack. Camped out in the woods, as far from civilization as possible, watching the full moon dance over shimmering heat waves from the bonfire, surrounded by folks of a like
mind... it's truly a recharge for batteries drained my mundane human existence. Howls are organized by whoever has the land and time to put one on. Ask the group when and where the next one is; they're worth it, no matter the distance traveled to!


What Is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:

  • clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and
  • obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
