    Susan Aloix: :) is there a PAB on?

    Scathach Rhiadra: have you been here before?

    Susan Aloix: yes a couple of times....have you? :)

    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, I just wanted to check that you knew about the recording

    Susan Aloix: yeah...thanks for letting me know :)....is there a meeting on now?

    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, if anyone turns up!

    Susan Aloix: ohh cool...:)...

    Susan Aloix: I'm going to open up a different viewer here...brb

    Scathach Rhiadra: it is not a great time to early in the morning for some and too late at night for others

    Susan Aloix: yeah :) its perfect for me...i'll brb

    Susan Aloix: :)

    Scathach Rhiadra: WB:)

    Susan Aloix: thanks Scathach :)


    Scathach Rhiadra: so, what brings you to this group, if I may ask?

    Susan Aloix: conversations...:)

    Scathach Rhiadra: ah..:)

    Susan Aloix: Philosophy, meditation and psychology seems to come up a bit here

    Susan Aloix: and you scath? :)

    Scathach Rhiadra: oh yes, they do:)

    Susan Aloix: :)

    Scathach Rhiadra: pretty much the same, I suppose

    Susan Aloix: Ahh nods...i've not seen it this quite

    Susan Aloix: i'm in australia...so the times rarely suit me

    Scathach Rhiadra: :) well, some of the time slots are prone to be quiet

    Susan Aloix: yeah ..that makes sense there are a lot of sessions

    Scathach Rhiadra: the 1pm slot seems to suit most Europeans, and 7pm for the US

    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning

    Scathach Rhiadra: good morning Yakuzza:)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: did you both have a topic already ?

    Susan Aloix: ahh yeah Scathach....i usually make it to the 7am if i'm able to stay up

    Susan Aloix: Hey Yaku

    Scathach Rhiadra: not really, we were just chatting about timezones and the effect they seem to have on PaB sessions

    Susan Aloix: brb

    Susan Aloix: laptop is overheating

    Scathach Rhiadra: :(

    Yakuzza Lethecus: when i came online this morning i asked a friend of mine why she's already online, she's german and told me that she didn't go to bed :), she was dancing with an american guy and of course for him it wasn't even midnight

    Yakuzza Lethecus: the preservation of contacts can have a really negative influence on our biorhytm i suppose

    Yakuzza Lethecus: over different timezones

    Yakuzza Lethecus: susan, maybe you should buy one of these coolingpad's

    Scathach Rhiadra: :) yes, she might never get to sleep at night again!

    Susan Aloix: back....i'm so sorry...i'm going to have to head out.....let it cool down a bit


    Scathach Rhiadra: good bye susan, nice to meet you:)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care susan

    Yakuzza Lethecus: you could also use radegast

    Yakuzza Lethecus: a nongraphic client

    Yakuzza Lethecus: if it's overheating

    Scathach Rhiadra: so Yaku, how have you been?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: fine, i had 2 weeks of vacation

    Scathach Rhiadra: ah nice:)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: but only went to another place at the first weekend

    Yakuzza Lethecus: so this week was my first workweek again, so i only met a lot of new ppl during my virtual vacation :P

    Yakuzza Lethecus: at least i can preserve these contacts even when i am not travelling

    Scathach Rhiadra nods

    Yakuzza Lethecus: it's weired on the one hand side i often think that it would be nice to travel more on the other hand what am i doing it exactly for, i am not a fan of those "get drunk or roast in the sun vacations"

    Yakuzza Lethecus: but to fly to like nova scotia is also expensive even tho the sensity with those contacts is great

    Yakuzza Lethecus: still i wait for the stuttgart retreat

    Scathach Rhiadra: hello Selene

    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning selene

    Selene Northman: hello Scathach and Yakuzza :-)

    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, I have never been on a 'sit in the sun' vacation either, much prefer to have something to do, if I am to travel

    Scathach Rhiadra: have you been here before Selene?

    Selene Northman: yes, i have been in here for a couple of times

    Scathach Rhiadra: ah ok, so you know about the recording

    Selene Northman: yes I know :)

    Scathach Rhiadra: have you heard any reports from the Nova Scotia retreat Yaku?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes

    Yakuzza Lethecus: it really sounded interesting, wol even meant that the retreat was better then the malta one :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i didn't wanted to hear that :P

    Yakuzza Lethecus: lol

    Scathach Rhiadra: :)

    Selene Northman: brb

    Scathach Rhiadra: the Stutgard retreat should be similar, I mean the place and length of staty, so it may be better than the Malta retreat too:)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, i liked the fact that we had a good tourguide in ara as well :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i mean i don't have too much money so i would never fly to like the states "only" for a retreat

    Selene Northman: back

    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb

    Selene Northman: ty

    Selene Northman: so you are going to Stuttgart

    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes

    Scathach Rhiadra nods, yes you would need to be having a vacation there as well to justify the expense


    Yakuzza Lethecus: did you ever consider to go to one of the pab retreats ?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: selene: have you ever been on a retreat ?

    Selene Northman: yes in Hamil Hampstead near London

    Selene Northman: it was a buddhist retreat

    Selene Northman: how about you?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i have only been to an play as being retreat on malta in january

    Yakuzza Lethecus: but it was really dense and interesting

    Scathach Rhiadra: :)

    Selene Northman: :-)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: scath: did you ever consider to go to one of the pab retreats ?

    Scathach Rhiadra: um...no, far too much talking for me, I prefer buddhist retreats:)

    Selene Northman: I can perfectly understand :)

    Scathach Rhiadra: :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i can't compare

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i mean pab here and pab retreat is totally different

    Yakuzza Lethecus: the regular pab sessions are chat most of the time, some ppl really can bring up good subjects and keep em alive

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don't really count myself to those

    Scathach Rhiadra: :) you do very well

    Yakuzza Lethecus: so i often hope that ppl with more experience somehow activate their sharing mode :)

    Scathach Rhiadra: It seems to me that one of the problems is that practice is personal

    Selene Northman: well it always depends on the poeple who are taking part in here

    Yakuzza Lethecus: so you also consider the recorder as a problem ?

    Selene Northman: me?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: scath

    Selene Northman: lol

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i mean the recorder was a big subject in the guardian sessions lately

    Scathach Rhiadra: mmm, I was more thinking about how you cannot really share personal lived practice, so to speak

    Scathach Rhiadra: you can share ideas, and thoughts but not the actual experience


    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey chaitanya

    chaitanya Crazyboi: hello

    Selene Northman: Greetings, chai :)

    chaitanya Crazyboi: wat is this place
