    Calvino Rabeni: I'm not sure your meaning fael and ag_003.jpg
    Calvino Rabeni: Technical breakdown interferes with clas?
    Darren Islar: yes

    Darren Islar: hey Wol
    Qt Core: hi all

    Fael Illyar: meep! :)
    Wol Euler: hello fael
    Qt Core: trek officer
    Fael Illyar: Hi Everyone :)
    Qt Core: (one of my trues nature)
    Qt Core: hi Fael
    Wol Euler: :)
    Darren Islar: hi fael
    Qt Core: truest
    Calvino Rabeni: Weather's warming up finally - mind if I slip into something more comfortable?
    Darren Islar: :-)
    Wol Euler: go for it
    Darren Islar: depends on how comfortable :-)
    Wol Euler: wow
    Wol Euler: an interesting transformation
    Calvino Rabeni: (Slow transformation occurs)
    Darren Islar: you can say that
    Fael Illyar: yes, definitely intresting transformation going on :)
    Darren Islar: hi Calvina
    Wol Euler: was that your first av apperance?
    Calvino Rabeni: Would be handy in SL to have unisex name, yes?
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Darren Islar: yes
    Fael Illyar: yes, it could be handy :)
    Darren Islar: or more avatars
    Wol Euler: I recommend that to people now
    Darren Islar: depends
    Darren Islar: I try to find a good name, didn't come up with one
    --BELL--
    Darren Islar: :-)
    Qt Core: that is if you want a real (or almost real name... i suppose qt is unisex enough, right ?)
    Calvino Rabeni: Strictly this is not an avi alt, just an outfit
    Wol Euler: but I bet it feels different, which is the essence of hte alt experience
    Calvino Rabeni: We have different ways of being different
    Qt Core: outfits... the lazy way to alts ;-)
    Fael Illyar: Yes, the way your avatar looks has a huge effect on the experience :)
    Darren Islar: maybe so QT, but easier to try
    Darren Islar: don't need to come up with a new name :-)
    Qt Core: yes, i only have (a few) outfits, no alts
    Darren Islar: And you don't even need a nes shape
    Darren Islar: *new
    Zon Quar: heya
    Wol Euler: hello zon, agatha

    Wol Euler smiles.

    Calvino Rabeni: Is SL "worksafe"?

    stevenaia Michinaga: corner of a circle?
    Wol Euler: so, cal, have you been Calvina "in public"?
    Agatha Macbeth: Squaring the circle? :)
    Darren Islar: well a circle always fits a square
    Agatha Macbeth smiles at 'Calvina'
    Wol Euler: if you hammer it hard enough
    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni winks at "Aggers"
    Agatha Macbeth: Hehe
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmm Wol, where is this "public" I've been hearing rumours about?
    Darren Islar: ah, that's the Cal I know
    Fael Illyar: is this not "public"?
    Calvino Rabeni: Oh, yep?
    Wol Euler: well, "not here", not among friends who know you and are more or less reliably cool about identity change and exploration
    Calvino Rabeni: Well, I need an "ego" too :) I keep hearing about those - but don't know where to buy one
    Darren Islar: no this is a bunch of friends
    Calvino Rabeni: They sound fun :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Aren't you supposed to have dropped it Cal?
    Calvino Rabeni: Sure, wol, you and etc. are pretty reliably cool about all that yes
    Wol Euler: there are places where that isn't true.
    Darren Islar: and 'ego' you get or free, don't ask me why
    Calvino Rabeni: although I'm not one to grope around the limits :)
    Wol Euler grins.
    Wol Euler: oh, but the fringe-y bits are where the fun is
    Bertram Jacobus: hy ari ! ... :-)
    Mickorod Renard: or the minge-y bits?
    Calvino Rabeni: I was hoping to get an ego somewhere, that would cause more trouble and what they call "Drama" - I think the one I'm wearing is malfunctioning
    Mickorod Renard: Hi ari
    Arisia Vita: Hi all!
    arabella Ella thinks it would be interesting to go on an excursion to the fringey bits
    Wol Euler: hello ari
    Wol Euler: well ... :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe just needs a pick-me-up
    Wol Euler: that could be arranged
    Darren Islar: hi ari
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Ari :)
    arabella Ella: Hiya Ari
    Mickorod Renard: I need picking up
    stevenaia Michinaga: must get an ego to drop an ego, can't drop waht you don't havee
    Agatha Macbeth: Why have you fallen over Mick?
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmmm, a pickup line?
    Darren Islar: just saw somebody change form a man in a woman
    arabella Ella: there is a lovely italian dessert for that a tiramisu
    Darren Islar: quite unexpectedly
    Agatha Macbeth gasps
    Calvino Rabeni: Normally it happens in private, even in SL
    Calvino Rabeni: But VIewer 2 opens up new vistas for behavior
    stevenaia Michinaga: in sl viewer2 there's a Male/Female toggle switch in Appearances, interestingly enough
    Wol Euler: oh, that was alwys there
    Calvino Rabeni: It's just a double-click -and Voila! new form and everything
    Agatha Macbeth: Wasn't there one in viewer 1?
    stevenaia Michinaga: really?
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Wol Euler: well, for certain values of "always", it
    Wol Euler: it'S at least two years old
    Qt Core: more than a click a cut and paste ;-)
    Darren Islar: yes, it was
    stevenaia Michinaga: when I switched to Viewer 2 I was Ruthed, then I found the switch
    Agatha Macbeth: Lucky you
    stevenaia Michinaga: no, I like being Ruth
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)

    Calvino Rabeni: And I have lots of relatives with that name
    Agatha Macbeth: Not if her second name's Less

    arabella Ella: yes
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    arabella Ella: dropping egos and finding them again
    Mickorod Renard: wat is it?
    Bertram Jacobus: topic is "being" i would say
    Bertram Jacobus: for example
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep, Being
    Bertram Jacobus: that is which we investigate
    Mickorod Renard: there is a danger I think,,that we may drop one and pick up another just as silly
    Eliza Madrigal giggles @ Mick
    Bertram Jacobus: and often many various ideas meet here
    Bertram Jacobus: i think thats natural
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Bertram Jacobus: sometimes we stand in the middle, sometimes very far aside
    Bertram Jacobus: of the talks
    Mickorod Renard: whats natural?
    Bertram Jacobus: to me - yes
    arabella Ella: yes in the pond too .... to cool off
    Bertram Jacobus: because it's a very nice group
    Bertram Jacobus: and it´s very liberal
    Eliza Madrigal: its the delight of SL and particularly of this group, to explore many angles & views
    Bertram Jacobus: allows all to be, not only one
    Bertram Jacobus: people listen here
    Bertram Jacobus: i like taht very much
    Bertram Jacobus: am happy and thankful
    Eliza Madrigal beams at Bert

    Agatha Macbeth: I'm a catholic actually! :)
    Mickorod Renard: are you?
    Bertram Jacobus: so if it´s okay for you that we write and you speak ? - would be fine to me :-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Bertram Jacobus: and i'm - follower of love ;-)
    Mickorod Renard: we may need to record your silence
    Eliza Madrigal smiles at Mick
    Bertram Jacobus: that'´s ma religion ;-)
    Wol Euler: I guess we can write "Rainer Pokryshkin: ...." in the log at intervals
    Agatha Macbeth: How do you record silence?
    arabella Ella: (silence)?
    Mickorod Renard: ' '
    Agatha Macbeth: Could be
