    genesis Zhangsun: 2 of them unwittingly
    Pema Pera: one in a park, one in city center and one in a jazz club
    Pema Pera: only the last one on purpose -- sort of, even there we weren't sure whether there would be live music
    Wol Euler:  :)
    Qt Core: and with good music you end updropping all but the "music feeler"
    Scathach Rhiadra is Offline
    Pema Pera: half of our time has been spend in a large hotel room, sitting, practicing, talking

    Pema Pera: a great balance, I'd say  :)
    Wol Euler:  :)
    Bleu Oleander: sounds like fun
    Gaya Ethaniel:  :)
    genesis Zhangsun: it has been a great unretreat
    Eden Haiku: Did you all knew each other already?
    Pema Pera: yes
    Wol Euler: is an un-retreat perhaps an "advance"? or a "forward march"?
    Pema Pera: hmmm, many options there!
    Pema Pera: a treat perhaps
    Eos Amaterasu: go back to the end
    Pema Pera:  :)
    Bleu Oleander: circular
    Eden Haiku: Where is Eliza ,you let her loose and wild in San Francisco?
    genesis Zhangsun: dropping even the "retreat" in "retreat"

    Agatha Macbeth: Shame, nice place
    Miss Composer: yeah
    Miss Composer: i dont get on with mart
    genesis Zhangsun: How do you Gaya and Wol feel this week, not being able to attend the retreat?
    Agatha Macbeth: If you like pink deserts, that is
    Miss Composer: ians though
    Wol Euler: pretty sad actually
    Gaya Ethaniel: -.-
    Wol Euler: (to gen)
    Wol Euler: I'd been looking forward to it greatly.
    genesis Zhangsun: yeah I can understand
    genesis Zhangsun: is there anything specific the two of you would like to know about the retreat?
    genesis Zhangsun: themes, questions, being explored?
    Wol Euler: only everything  :)
    Miss Composer: ill be back in 10 mins
    Gaya Ethaniel:  :)
    genesis Zhangsun:  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Beam her up Scotty...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, themes, Genesis?
    Wol Euler: how and where do you meet?
    Wol Euler: are there cushions? is there noise?
    Darren Islar: and most of all a tast of the atmosphere
    Eos Amaterasu: Pema has a suite, plenty of room for 5 people
    genesis Zhangsun: we meet from 9am-12pm and 8-9pm in the evenings, leaving the afternoons more open
    Eos Amaterasu: Japanese flavor
    genesis Zhangsun: no cushions, no noise
    Pema Pera: we sit on chairs, sometimes on the ground when we take a practice break
    arabella Ella: sofas?
    Pema Pera: yes and chairs, both
    arabella Ella: carpets?
    genesis Zhangsun: well a little bit of noise occasionally but nothing like ambulances and jack hammers
    Pema Pera: not *that* urban!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    genesis Zhangsun: as for themes we have been exploring various themes, one being "How to Play as Being"
    Pema Pera: in RL as well as SL
    genesis Zhangsun: along with the usual, that little "what is reality ?" thing
    Wol Euler:  :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia:  :)
    arabella Ella: how did you combine the hotel with RL outdside hotel ... the urban element?
    Pema Pera: we also proposed to have a theme session, a week from Sunday, at 1 pm, about "how to play as Being" -- as a question
    SophiaSharon Larnia: great!
    Bleu Oleander: great
    Pema Pera: oh, walking, talking, having a good time, Arabella, very naturally
    Agatha Macbeth makes a note in her diary
    Pema Pera: actually pretty much like in Malta
    Pema Pera: when we went out for shopping getting almond cookies!!
    genesis Zhangsun: and beforehand each of us who were here will write our account of how we "play as being"
    Wol Euler grins
    genesis Zhangsun: and encourage others to write reports about their own experiences
    arabella Ella: sounds lovely!
    Pema Pera: One of the explorations we did was suggested by Genesis: while walking around in the city viewing the city life landscape as a kind of "nature" in its own right
    Wol Euler nods
    genesis Zhangsun: with "playing as being": what is it that people are doing behind the screens, their thoughts, intentions, in engaging with our participants, what we feel are the core principles, the "code" (loose and informal) about ways of behaving, holding space for discussions
    genesis Zhangsun: *other instead of our
    Eos Amaterasu: (during sessions)
    genesis Zhangsun: essentially about how we make play as being sessions a part of our practice

    Mickorod Renard: hi Zon and Zen
    Agatha Macbeth: All helps the lag  :)
    Zen Arado: Hi Zon:)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi everyone who arrived  :)
    Pema Pera: rather than stricly being silent
    Bleu Oleander: hiZen, Zon
    Pema Pera: One of the pleasures of the retreat was to hear that pithy one-liners by Eos  :-)
    arabella Ella: yes
    genesis Zhangsun:  :)
    Qt Core: maybe even more intense as in having to chose if and how to speak
    arabella Ella:  :)
    Gaya Ethaniel:  :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: example? ^^
    Pema Pera: yes, Qt, very much so!
    genesis Zhangsun: Eos? would you like to share  :)
    arabella Ella: so none of you could get 'lost in the crowd' i guess
    Eos Amaterasu: the days here have been very vivid: the occasional rain clearing the air
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes Eos, I would like that
    Pema Pera: (that is an eos koan perhaps: rain clearing the air?)
    Wol Euler: wb eden
    Gaya Ethaniel: wb  :)
    Darren Islar: wb
    Eos Amaterasu: (Johnny Nash)
    Agatha Macbeth: Johnny Nash?
    arabella Ella: ??
    Agatha Macbeth: Taers on my pillow?
    Eos Amaterasu: "I can see clearly now, the rain has gone..."
    Zen Arado: Hi Eden:)
    Eden Haiku:  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Or even tears on my pillow
    arabella Ella:  :)
    Zen Arado: thought that was 'Johnny come lately'
    Eos Amaterasu: we landed in the middle of cherry blossom festival
    Archmage Atlantis: Oh, how cannot I comment
    Pema Pera: and we visited the church of St John Coltraine
    Wol Euler: ooooh
    Eos Amaterasu: Orthodox Church of Saint John Coltrane
    Eden Haiku: You posted a beautiful picture of the cherry blossoms Eos, so you are having a fragrant retreat?
    Eos Amaterasu: "a love supreme, a love supreme"
    Wol Euler: were you all humming "A love supreme"?
    Wol Euler: yes!
    Wol Euler: hehehehhe
    Agatha Macbeth hears a sax playing
    Pema Pera: http://www.coltranechurch.org/
    Archmage Atlantis: None of us see with clarity
    Eos Amaterasu: the church is more popular in europe than in North Am, Wol
    Pema Pera: and then we met Edna Love
    Wol Euler: what was that about prophets and homelands?
    Agatha Macbeth:  :)
    Pema Pera: as for Edna Love: http://www.bayareabooking.com/band_edna.htm
    genesis Zhangsun: apparently if you are wearing a church of john c t-shirt in Europe you will fall in with all the right people, or so we have been told
    Eos Amaterasu: And we heard/saw Edna Love doing blues music at a bar Gen recommended
    Agatha Macbeth: Must remember to get one
    Eos Amaterasu: (will post photo of Gen and Edna)
    SophiaSharon Larnia:  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Whoa
    Eden Haiku: Listening to "I feel good"...
    Agatha Macbeth: I knew that you would  :)
    genesis Zhangsun: very unretreat like photo, I am smoking a menthol cigarette (hadn't smoked on of those in years)
    Pema Pera: really urban !!
    Eden Haiku: A menthol cigarette, I remember how bad it tastes!
    Pema Pera: getting all the gossip while standing outside . . .
    Eos Amaterasu: we were more restrained when we unwittingly joined thousands in Golden Gate park celebrating 420 day
    genesis Zhangsun: lol!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wow
    --- bell ---
    Agatha Macbeth: What's 420 day?
    Wol Euler: oh, remind me what 420 is?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: earth day?
    Eos Amaterasu: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/420_(cannabis_culture)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ohhh oops ;p

    arabella Ella: what is 420 day?
    Storm Nordwind: Hitler's birthday?
    arabella Ella: he he

    Agatha Macbeth grins broadly
    Eden Haiku: Ah yes, smoking pot all over the world on the 20th of April...

    Bleu Oleander: smoke breaks
    Agatha Macbeth: Me too
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (soory so laggy i couldn't see it)

    arabella Ella: Ah you are accustomed to Amsterdam Pema
    genesis Zhangsun:  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Well what else would you expect in SF?
    Pema Pera: well, yes  :)
    Eos Amaterasu: We had dinner at Magnolia restaurant near the Haight district: Pema drank beer siphoned directly from the basement brewerey
    Pema Pera: using a long straw . . . .
    Eden Haiku:  ;)
    Eos Amaterasu: One lunch time we were given a plate with a little bunny image in the middle  :-)  ;-(

    Wol Euler: yes!"
    Wol Euler: I saw the photo, that was great.
    Gaya Ethaniel:  :)
    Agatha Macbeth is over-cuted
    Eos Amaterasu: Gaya did make it, ulta-virtually
    Eden Haiku: So you are there virtually Gaya!
    arabella Ella: a bunny ... at Hef's ... ehrm ....
    Agatha Macbeth: :)))

    Wol Euler grins
    Agatha Macbeth: Well actually, I just did...
    Zen Arado: hurts my delicate feelings  :)
    Agatha Macbeth bows in apology
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it's getting!
    Agatha Macbeth: Meep Meep   ;P :p:P :p :P
    Wol Euler:  :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye for now all :))
    Wol Euler: 'night sharon, take care
    Zen Arado: bye Sharon
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Sharon, take care
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ~waves~
    Sartre Placebo: night ssl
    arabella Ella: bye SSL
    arabella Ella: I think your shirt looks nice Zen and there is no hard and fast rule about colour and gender after all is there?
    Agatha Macbeth: Course not...
    Wol Euler: agreed on both counts.
    Zen Arado: yes aga is living in the past  :)
    --- bell ---
    Agatha Macbeth: Call me Dr Who
    Zen Arado: I am a new man  :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: dr who ? or you mean just ,,the doctor" ?
    arabella Ella: Well ... and no offense Aga ... were the Brits ever experts .... nuf said ...
    Agatha Macbeth: No
    Zen Arado: gender and clothing hmmmmm
    Agatha Macbeth: Hmmmmmmm
    Zen Arado: we do have to stick to conventions though
    Agatha Macbeth: Do we?
    Zen Arado: you won;t see me in a mini
    Agatha Macbeth: I don't
    arabella Ella: well italian males can be very elegant and many wear pink shirts which look good
    Archmage Atlantis: I hope not
    Wol Euler: perhaps phrase that as "it's odd how we do stick to conventions"
    Zen Arado: yes but women can wear what they want
    Agatha Macbeth: Though you wouldn't see me dressed like this in RL  ;-)
    Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.
    Archmage Atlantis: This has never been
    Wol Euler: well, no, nor I  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Not outdoors anyway
    Zen Arado: they can wear suits and trousers
    arabella Ella: would it not be nice if we were as free to wear what we like in RL as we do here
    Zen Arado: males can't wear dresses
    Agatha Macbeth: Er...
    arabella Ella: many males in the world wear skirts ... scots, arabs, indians, etc
    Wol Euler raises the other eyebrow
    Zen Arado: don't want to either ( he said hastrily)
    arabella Ella: david beckham
    Agatha Macbeth: Well there ya go
    Zen Arado: ok but special cases of 'dresses'
    arabella Ella: females tho tend not to have hair cropped like males ... or shaved rather
    Yakuzza Lethecus: night everyone
    Yakuzza Lethecus is Offline
    arabella Ella: nite Yaku
    Wol Euler: bye yaku
    Zen Arado: nite Yaku
    Agatha Macbeth: Gute Nacht Yaku
    Zen Arado: Buddhist nuns do
    Wol Euler: why do other people care what our gender is?
    Agatha Macbeth: Do what?
    Zen Arado: have their hair cropped
    Archmage Atlantis: I am goinhg to get in touble for this
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Wol Euler: why should anyone care, when looking at me, whether I am male or female?
    arabella Ella: true
    arabella Ella: we are persons first and foremost
    Wol Euler: unless they feel that, were I female, they would have some rights over my body or my mind
    Zen Arado: we have subtle rules of behaviour
    Agatha Macbeth: Perhaps we can bring this up at the workshop Wol
    Wol Euler: indeed we will!
    arabella Ella: the workshop?
    Agatha Macbeth is looking forward to it
    Archmage Atlantis: But I am totallly gay, and my male partner in SL is female......
    Zen Arado: having an alt raises these issues for me
    Zen Arado: a female one that is
    Wol Euler: I'll be hostbeing-ing a workshop on the SL-ness of SL starting this summer
    Agatha Macbeth: That's confusing Arch
    arabella Ella: thanks Wol sounds interesting!
    Wol Euler: perhaps it points to something essential: that we are attracted to persons, not to flesh.
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, Agatha, it is
    Wol Euler: and SL reveals this.
    Agatha Macbeth: But fun tho, I'll bet
    aurel Miles is Offline
    Zen Arado: we know that Arch
    arabella Ella: could it be that we are attracted to persons but some cultural conventions may create constraints depending on context ... or is that stupid?
    Archmage Atlantis: It has been public Zen, yes
    Wol Euler: it is stupid, but it's true, ara. that is exactly the point  :)
    Wol Euler: IMHO YMMV
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, it's stupid
    arabella Ella nods
    Zen Arado: we should be free to be how we want
    Wol Euler nods.
    Wol Euler: we can practice that here.
    Zen Arado: without society frowning on it
    arabella Ella: that is part of the beauty of SL
    arabella Ella: the freedom it allows us
    Zen Arado: but we still have conventions we can't get out of
    arabella Ella: well it is us as individuals who sometimes bring conventions from RL to SL
    Storm Nordwind: And we still like to give ourselves a structure
    Archmage Atlantis: Zen, we create our own prisons
    Agatha Macbeth nods to Arch
    Zen Arado: well I don't want to have sex in public
    Zen Arado: is that a prison?
    Zen Arado: it would offend others
    Agatha Macbeth: Glad to haer it Zen  ;-)
    Zen Arado: so you see we still have to have some conventions
    Agatha Macbeth: At your age it could be fatal ;p
    Zen Arado: no such thing as freedom in the end
    Archmage Atlantis: And to "come out" of them is not always the way the movies portray them
    Zen Arado:  :)
    Storm Nordwind: It depends, Zen, on whether you are attached to that 'want'. My guess is that you probably aren't!  :)
    Zen Arado: our distant ancestors probably did  :)
    Zen Arado: then we grew ashamed
    arabella Ella: not so distant Zen ... not too long ago you would find whole families living in one room and still procreating
    Zen Arado: that's when we were expelled fro the Garden of Eden you know  :)
    Wol Euler: right
    Wol Euler: for feeling shame
    Wol Euler: not for eating apples
    Wol Euler: shame is unworthy of hte company of angels.
    arabella Ella: you are only talking about your culture Zen
    Storm Nordwind: But we're back there now  :)
    --- bell ---
    arabella Ella: Germany is one example of a different attitude there
    Arisia Vita: Eve would have been better advised to eat the snake instead of the apple
    Archmage Atlantis: Excuse me, but we were never expelled, only given more responsibility
    Arisia Vita: or Adam
    Agatha Macbeth: The Ophites believed the Serpent represented wisdom
    Storm Nordwind: Shame is an unnecessary fantasy, a phantasm with only the reaality we personally give it
    Agatha Macbeth: Not shame
    Wol Euler nods to storm
    Zen Arado: but isn't shame societally induced
    Wol Euler: shame is letting other people run your life
    Storm Nordwind nods to Wol
    Wol Euler: without them even needing to take action
    Zen Arado: when we feel bad for transgressing its standards
    Agatha Macbeth: And at the end of the day you'll die anyway, so who cares?
    Zen Arado: shame
    Storm Nordwind: I'll change what Wol said ever so slightly: "shame is letting other people ruin your life"
    Wol Euler: ha, yes.
    Zen Arado: nods
    Wol Euler: giving htem a watering can with which to rain on your parade
    Archmage Atlantis: I have to say what is for mel..shame is knowig were other inone's life differs
    Zen Arado: I think we forget just how constrained we are by the consensus reality of others
    Zen Arado: and backed up by the law
    arabella Ella: well doesn't shame involve both guilt and embarassement by others?
    Zen Arado: because we break certain rules
    Wol Euler: shame to me means feeling htat I do not live up to a standard imposed by others
    Storm Nordwind: Modern society is run by these emotions: fear, shame and guilt, and the song of attachment (not love) on the radio. It is so easy to manipulate whole nations and cultures this way. It's a tough personal decision to break free and stay free.
    Wol Euler nods strongly
    Zen Arado: but we impose the feeling on ourselves
    Agatha Macbeth: Shame is something you usually feel after you enjoyed yourself  ;-)
    Wol Euler: why, though?
    arabella Ella: that's guilt Aga
    arabella Ella: not shame
    Storm Nordwind: Not shame but stupidity!  ;)
    arabella Ella: like eating too many chocolates
    Agatha Macbeth: Both fun tho...
    Zen Arado: thinking about conscience - never hear that word much nowadays
    Agatha Macbeth: Jiminy Cricket
    Zen Arado: guilty conscience
    Zen Arado: there's more
    Zen Arado:  :)
    Storm Nordwind: If you are fully conscious, why do you need conscience?
    Wol Euler: a bodhisattva would not need one
    Zen Arado: cos I'm not  :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Well as a gay man,trying to be in relaition ship
    Storm Nordwind nods to Wol
    Zen Arado: conscience need learned rules ?
    Wol Euler: conscience is the internalized parent, disciplining the inner child
    Wol Euler: say more, arch?
    Zen Arado: yes with rigid rules that must not be broken
    Archmage Atlantis: pot coment
    Storm Nordwind waves to the pleasant group and slips back to his guardian plot
    Agatha Macbeth: Did I start all this by mentioning your shirt Zen?
    arabella Ella: bye Storm
    Zen Arado: bye Storm
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Storm
    Wol Euler: bye storm, take care.
    Wol Euler: enjoy your mountain
    Zen Arado: yep
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Climb every mountain'
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow
    Zen Arado: have to watch what you say to me Aga  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe I should keep quiet in future
    Zen Arado: or you get a long diatrube
    Archmage Atlantis: Storm?
    Zen Arado: or diatribe even
    Agatha Macbeth: Can't beat a long diatrube
    Zen Arado:  :)
    Wol Euler: this was fun, why should we have avoided it?
    Archmage Atlantis: I am old
    Zen Arado: better than a monologue?
    Agatha Macbeth: i think we all are Arch
    Arisia Vita: old is in the mind?
    Arisia Vita: as is young?
    Wol Euler: none of us are kids any more
    Agatha Macbeth: Dunno about Ara tho, so I'll shut up
    arabella Ella:  :)
    arabella Ella: just listening
    arabella Ella: wont speak about age tho ...
    Arisia Vita: There was an old owl who lived in an oak,
    The more he heard, the less he spoke;
    The less he spoke, the more he heard,
    Now wasn't that a wise old bird.
    Agatha Macbeth: Sure was  :)
    Zen Arado: true
    Agatha Macbeth: Only came out at night too
    Zen Arado: but he never had much fun  :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Ari, you stayed., ..high 5 dude
    --- bell ---
    Arisia Vita: Perhaps the owl is the better judge of his fun than you Zen?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hey Zen, where did the symmetry go?
    Wol Euler: oh, it's long gone  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Nads
    Zen Arado: wiser is not necessarily happier
    Zen Arado: though it helps maybe
    Zen Arado: what symmetry?
    Agatha Macbeth: Exactly
    Zen Arado: I like Nasrudin stories
    Wol Euler smiles
    Zen Arado: he was always a 'fool'
    arabella Ella: well Zen some ppl here like us to sit in a sort of pattern ... and tonite it was only mad patterns not symmetric at all
    Zen Arado: ah I see
    Wol Euler: but a very clever one, zen
    Zen Arado: exactly Wol
    Zen Arado: perhaps you have to learn to be a fool
    Wol Euler nods
    Zen Arado: like me
    Agatha Macbeth: Perhaps you have to be a fool to learn
    Wol Euler: "Where did you learn that, Fool?" "Not in the stocks, fool"
    Wol Euler: (King Lear)
    Agatha Macbeth: Where is he now?
    Wol Euler: long dead, as is his master
    Agatha Macbeth: So it goes
    Wol Euler nods.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yaku gets all the good logs to edit
    Wol Euler: heheheheh
    Agatha Macbeth: Bet nobody turns up for me later
    Wol Euler: at 7pm?
    Agatha Macbeth: mmm
    arabella Ella: how do you manage to stay up so late Aga
    Agatha Macbeth: No-one came last week
    Wol Euler: yeah, really
    Agatha Macbeth shrugs
    Wol Euler: not just you, aggers
    Wol Euler: I sat alone this morning too
    arabella Ella: owwwww
    Agatha Macbeth: Two weeks running?
    Zen Arado: happens often to me too
    arabella Ella: so do you reckon this is the busiest slot for PaB?
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Agatha Macbeth: 1300? Sure
    Wol Euler: the 1pms are reliable
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll find out from next Tuesday...
    arabella Ella: possible as they combine the two main continents
    Zen Arado: yes I agree
    Agatha Macbeth: It's the time that's most convenient for most people
    Agatha Macbeth: Not too late for the europeans, not too early for the North Americans
    Wol Euler nods.
    arabella Ella: i find it surprising tho that most europeans come on line evenings while americans seem to come on line quite a lot daytime too
    Zen Arado: wonder about that too
    Wol Euler: ah, that's because we work harder than they do  :)
    arabella Ella: probably
    Wol Euler giggles
    Agatha Macbeth: I was going to say perhaps they have more leisure time
    arabella Ella:  :)
    Zen Arado: it's ok for me since I am retired
    Zen Arado: well in theory I am
    arabella Ella: are you on linee a lot during the day Zen?
    Zen Arado: I sometimes go to the 7am meetings
    Zen Arado: because that is 3 pm for me
    arabella Ella: ah ok
    arabella Ella: yes i just did the calculation
    Zen Arado: but I also like to paint in the afternoons
    arabella Ella: yes? what do you paint?
    Agatha Macbeth: I sometimes go to the 0700s when I'm off work
    Zen Arado: abstracts atm
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Picasso
    Wol Euler looks around curiously.
    arabella Ella: ah ... cool ... watercolour?
    Zen Arado: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jjhtaylor/
    Zen Arado: ha ha you gave me an opening there
    Wol Euler: nice colours
    arabella Ella: well why not!
    arabella Ella: yes lovely the blues and pale yellows
    Zen Arado: I like colour and texture
    --- bell ---
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow Zen, vivid
    Wol Euler: "Play" looks like an exploded Donald Duck  :)
    Wol Euler: (in a nice way)
    Eden Haiku is Online
    Zen Arado: every one says it is a clown
    Zen Arado: or a juggler
    Play as Being 15 minute bell: Thank you.
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Mr Rorschach
    arabella Ella: Lotus is lovely
    Wol Euler: do you know a 1950's painter called Jean-Paul Riopelle, from Montreal?
    Zen Arado: sorry no
    Wol Euler: look him up, you'd like his work
    Zen Arado: why?
    Zen Arado: ok
    Wol Euler: moonburst and "green and red" remind me of him
    Wol Euler: um, btw, you realize that you've just put your RL name in the log, Zen?
    Agatha Macbeth: Do us a Jackson Pollock zen, but drive carefully  :)
    Zen Arado: lots of traditinal paintings there too
    Zen Arado: does that matter ?
    Wol Euler: it does if it matters to you  :)
    arabella Ella: Zen has put in links which lead to his RL name on other occasions too
    Wol Euler: sorry, I am in "mother hen" mode
    Agatha Macbeth: (As usual)
    Wol Euler steps back and minds her own business
    arabella Ella:  :)
    Zen Arado: my Flickr page is public too
    Zen Arado: what are the dangers Wol?
    Agatha Macbeth: I was gonna ask too
    arabella Ella: did you go to classes Zen or are you self taught?
    Wol Euler: no danger, really, just that some people like to keep the worlds separate (points to self)
    Zen Arado: I did go to many teachers when I started
    Zen Arado: no I am not bothered about that
    arabella Ella: ah
    Zen Arado: what is the term for that?
    Zen Arado: used to know
    Wol Euler: "blissful"?
    Zen Arado:  :)
    arabella Ella: the term for what?
    Zen Arado: for whether you keep SL and RL separate or not
    Zen Arado: integrationists or something
    Agatha Macbeth: Personal choice?
    Wol Euler: segregationist
    Zen Arado: ah - notice my need for classifications
    arabella Ella: i dunno ... i know there are immersionists but that is something else
    Wol Euler: inner apartheid
    Zen Arado: yes that's it
    Zen Arado: ah yes immersionists
    arabella Ella: but arent they people who totally immerse themselves in SL?
    Wol Euler: good, I'll add those terms to the list of topics for the workshop
    Zen Arado: I never could keep the two separate
    Zen Arado: unless I never talked
    arabella Ella: neither could i
    Wol Euler: why?
    Zen Arado: pretty hard for me  :)
    arabella Ella: difficult for me too
    Zen Arado: soon as I meet ppl I start to tell them about myself
    Zen Arado: but I don't know many from RL in SL
    Zen Arado: that could be tricky
    Zen Arado: I have a friend who comes in here who hasn't told his partner he does
    Zen Arado: told me to keep quiet about it
    Agatha Macbeth: The SL/RL thing is an intersesting dichotomy
    Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.
    arabella Ella: i am sure there are many on SL who keep it a secret from their partners
    Zen Arado: yes - I hate that kind of secrecy
    arabella Ella: i empathise and understand it may be inevitable
    Agatha Macbeth: I don't have one, so no worries
    Wol Euler: awwww
    arabella Ella: i dont have one either Aga ... he he
    Agatha Macbeth: Ain't it great? :))
    arabella Ella: oh yes nothing better than independence
    Wol Euler: you wouldn't be staying up until 4am if you did,
    Zen Arado: keep them out I say
    Agatha Macbeth: True
    Agatha Macbeth: Do what you want when you want...
    arabella Ella: i can just imagine some conversations ... how long are you gonna be on that f....ing laptop ... he he
    Agatha Macbeth: Hmm
    Zen Arado: yes  :)
    Wol Euler: mmhm
    Wol Euler: unless the partner is in SL too
    arabella Ella: (cut from log?)
    Wol Euler: well, we could turn it off
    Agatha Macbeth: 'The quiet joys of solitude' as Sandy Denny said
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, when did Arch leave?
    --- bell ---
    Agatha Macbeth: Didn't see him go..
    arabella Ella: neither did i
    Zen Arado: Ari went too
    Agatha Macbeth: He said goodbye to me in IM  :)
    Zen Arado: me too
    arabella Ella: me too
    Wol Euler: me too
    Zen Arado: he does that  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Cute guy, but strange  :)
    Zen Arado: and I though I was special  :)
    arabella Ella:  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You *are* special Zen!
    Agatha Macbeth: You're a better bloody artist than me for a start
    Wol Euler:  :)
    Zen Arado: specialness is ust ego
    Zen Arado: ust
    arabella Ella: lost your 'J'
    Agatha Macbeth: Et in Arcadio Ego
    Zen Arado: drat this bloody 'j'key
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Agatha Macbeth: Windoze kb's eh?
    Zen Arado: ?
    Zen Arado: ah windows keyboards
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep
    Zen Arado: Toshiba keyboard
    Agatha Macbeth: Never seemed to get so many typos on my A4000  :)
    Wol Euler: heheheheh
    Zen Arado: well my Spectrum wasn't great:)
    arabella Ella: hehe
    Wol Euler: I make more mistakes on this winbox than on my macs
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, I remember the Spectrum
    Zen Arado: with its Tasword Two
    Agatha Macbeth: You turned it upside down and all the keys fell off
    arabella Ella: he he
    Agatha Macbeth: Good old Clive
    Agatha Macbeth: Where is he now?
    arabella Ella: i think he has a wiki page ... he is still around
    Wol Euler: I've been trying to remember the name of my first computer. It was book sized, about an inch thick, black rubber
    Agatha Macbeth: Erk
    Wol Euler: with a five line 80 character display above the keyboard
    arabella Ella: mine was the Amstrad
    Agatha Macbeth: It would be  :)
    arabella Ella: not the Olivetti Wol?
    Agatha Macbeth: How long ago?
    Wol Euler: middle 80's
    Zen Arado: maybe a ZX 80
    Agatha Macbeth:  :)
    Wol Euler: I don't think it was an olivetti, but the graphic style was similar
    Zen Arado: forerunner of the Spectrum
    Wol Euler: no, not like thtat
    Wol Euler: black rubber, A4 size by an inch thick
    Wol Euler: damn, what was it called?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm
    Zen Arado: uh oh going to crash
    arabella Ella: 0s
    arabella Ella: owwww not sure what is happening to my chat tonite
    Zen Arado: funny colours
    arabella Ella: i wrote A4 size sounds small for 80s
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe it's Maltese Ara?
    arabella Ella: maybe jista jkun
    Agatha Macbeth: Could be
    Wol Euler: there we are!
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Wol Euler: z88
    Wol Euler: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambridge_Z88
    Agatha Macbeth: So it was a Sinclair one?
    arabella Ella: looks more like a largeish calculator
    Wol Euler: yes, made by Clive
    Wol Euler: but after Sinclair (the company) went broke
    Agatha Macbeth: Should have guessed when you said rubber..
    Wol Euler:  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Z80 based eh
    arabella Ella: do they actually sell the old computers on the german site you gave the link for Wol?
    Agatha Macbeth: Surely that must have been out at the same time as the QL then?
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Zen!
    Wol Euler: I don't think they do, ara
    Wol Euler: wb zen
    Agatha Macbeth: wb Zen
    arabella Ella: ok
    --- bell ---
    Agatha Macbeth: Damn, we've been here 2.5 hours
    Wol Euler:  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yaku's gonna love us
    Wol Euler waves to Yaku who has a very long log to edit
    Agatha Macbeth: What is it about Friday nights?
    Agatha Macbeth: onigokko
    arabella Ella giggles
    Agatha Macbeth: stop
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, yes...
    Zen Arado: I have a veresion that grows a tail
    arabella Ella: hey symmetry at last!!!!
    Agatha Macbeth: ?? Zen
    Wol Euler: there are invisible ones, would you like a copy?
    Zen Arado: oni gokko shippo
    Agatha Macbeth: Invisible what?
    Wol Euler: onigokkos
    Zen Arado: no I have the other one too
    Agatha Macbeth is puzzled
    Zen Arado: wonderd where I got a tail from one noght
    Agatha Macbeth: Are they not all invisible?
    arabella Ella: no
    Wol Euler: nope, some appear as a long pink tail
    Zen Arado: cos it stayed on after music finished
    Zen Arado: yes
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, like Lia's?
    Wol Euler: you were wearing hte other, zen
    Wol Euler: yes, hers is that time
    Wol Euler: type
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm
    Zen Arado: would go with my shirt then  :)
    Agatha Macbeth: The Pink Panther
    Zen Arado: funny the way I ma crashing lately
    Agatha Macbeth: Does it happen often Zen?
    Zen Arado: I get all these blocks of colours weaving about first
    Zen Arado: it seems to be happening here inpab
    Agatha Macbeth: Graphic card issues?
    Wol Euler: ah, that means that hte graphics hardward is crapping out
    arabella Ella: i used to get those on my previous laptop ... graphic card
    Wol Euler: look for a driver update on the manufacturer's website
    Zen Arado: I upgraded to win 7 lately
    Wol Euler: which version of w7? 32 bit or 64 bit?
    Zen Arado: maybe I need to upgrade the graphics driver
    Zen Arado: 32
    Agatha Macbeth: Did you upgrade your drivers recently?
    Wol Euler: you should definitely look for a newer driver, yes
    arabella Ella: the regular SL site gives recommendations for graphic cards
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll stick with Vista for the time being
    Zen Arado: no but might need to for win 7
    Wol Euler: my dears, I shall have to get to bed.
    arabella Ella: i need some sleep too
    Wol Euler: it's been real, as they usd to say
    arabella Ella: nite everyone
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye for now Wol
