    Agatha Macbeth: Well, they can't agree with the Lindens on various things, alledgedly

    adoro Rhapsody: a placebo cloud
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Dash Earthboy: :)
    Dash Earthboy: anybody here believe in horoscopes?

    Agatha Macbeth: Pretty hit-and-miss in my experience
    Agatha Macbeth: I certainly don't believe those ones they publish in newspapers
    Dash Earthboy: you mean like a broken watch Aggie?
    Agatha Macbeth: In a way
    Qt Core: Hi all
    Agatha Macbeth: At least it's right twice a day ;-)
    adoro Rhapsody: and some long term relationships
    Dash Earthboy: hi Qt

    Agatha Macbeth: Don't start me on relationships!

    Aggers makes the sign of the cross

    Agatha Macbeth: 'Sera Qt :)
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    adoro Rhapsody: i wont start
    adoro Rhapsody: but i am virgo and my wife is bull and it fits already more than 30 yers
    adoro Rhapsody: years
    Agatha Macbeth: Good :)
    Dash Earthboy: wow the lag on this XP is incredible
    adoro Rhapsody: so that works
    Agatha Macbeth: I'm a Scorpio :)

    For my sins...

    Dash Earthboy: good Adoro!
    adoro Rhapsody: maybe it is lucky stars
    Agatha Macbeth: I still occasionally use XP on my Packard Bell, but more often Ubuntu
    Dash Earthboy: ya I like RHEL or Debian mostly
    Dash Earthboy: but I run Ubuntu on this XP system as a service
    Agatha Macbeth: Linux doesn't keep crashing its drivers like Windoze
    Dash Earthboy: true
    Qt Core: suse for work, ubuntu at home
    Agatha Macbeth: I like it immensely I must say
    Agatha Macbeth: Wish the icons were a bit funkier tho :)
    Qt Core: but i'm guilty, i prefer vista for sl ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Me too Qt!
    adoro Rhapsody: i prefer vista for sl too
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    adoro Rhapsody: and for youtube
    Agatha Macbeth: It certainly seems to get the job done anyways
    Dash Earthboy: i think my main problem with SL on this is my Intel graphics
    Agatha Macbeth: We have come a long way since Windows 95
    Qt Core: i'm from windows 2.and dos age, even a longer way ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: eek!
    Dash Earthboy: The county I worked for in 2004 was still using Win95c
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, my excuse is I used an A4000 for years
    adoro Rhapsody: I am of DOS and Algol and Cobol and Assembler
    adoro Rhapsody: those where the days
    Dash Earthboy: ya Qt I was happy with Concurrent DOS and CPM myself :)
    Agatha Macbeth: truly :)
    Dash Earthboy: and using WordPerfect & Quattro!
    Agatha Macbeth fondly remembers the ZX81
    adoro Rhapsody: the only thinks that were right were the punches in the punchcards
    Qt Core: cobol and basic at school moved to C immediately after
    Dash Earthboy: ya
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    adoro Rhapsody: nostalgia
    Agatha Macbeth: One thing about Linux: it reminded me what a CLI is! :p
    Dash Earthboy: well I was playing with C on the Unix 3Bs
    adoro Rhapsody: meybe in "le musee du ICT in Paris
    adoro Rhapsody: maybe
    Dash Earthboy: and found it more fun than COBOL had been for me
    Qt Core: you know, only after i discovered my vocation cor cumputers i discovered my mother was a programmer in the '60 i knew her only as a math teacher


    Agatha Macbeth: Whoa

    Mickorod Renard: thats better
    Dash Earthboy: ya morgan you missed the swim :)
    morgano Bravin: but it took me ages to see anything
    Agatha Macbeth: SL can be a pain sometimes
    Qt Core: sometimes some logging in sl remembers bad mornings ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh yes, definitely!
    Dash Earthboy: i hear a good gaming video card helps
    Agatha Macbeth: And ones you can't remember too :p
    Agatha Macbeth: onigokko
    arabella Ella: Dash the problem is you cant upgrade the graphics card on a laptop
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    druth Vlodovic: funny "living" in a world of such unstable and arbitrary physics
    Qt Core: at most add some memory
    Dash Earthboy: exactly
    Agatha Macbeth: stop
    Agatha Macbeth: That sorted the lag
    arabella Ella: add some memory to a new laptop?
    arabella Ella: does that really cure the lag?
    Qt Core: to the graphic card, in some there is space (bu as i hate laptops i may be wrong)
    Agatha Macbeth: It cures mine ;-)
    Dash Earthboy: i can't change a video card in my laptop for sure
    Agatha Macbeth: I never use them
    adoro Rhapsody: i go further
    adoro Rhapsody: bye all
    Yakuzza Lethecus: often even when more momory fits into the laptop they use all slot´s already
    morgano Bravin: bye
    druth Vlodovic: bye adoro
    Qt Core: bye adoro
    Yakuzza Lethecus: night adoro
    Agatha Macbeth: Ever onward Ade
    Dash Earthboy: bye adoro
    Mickorod Renard: bye adoro
    Qt Core: then you have to change both ram chip
    Qt Core: to the upper density
    Qt Core: (size)
    morgano Bravin: size is everything
    Agatha Macbeth: I just noticed Qt's hair grew back
    arabella Ella: oh yes Qt what happened?
    Mickorod Renard: we must chat mrgano
    Dash Earthboy: really wish my laptop had 6G of RAM
    Dash Earthboy: only got half that
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Qt Core: i never had problems with 4 in my desk (even if vista see only 3.5 ;-) )
    Dash Earthboy: makes a difference when you're running a few virtual machines on Vista
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, Vista probably would...
    Qt Core: oh, yes, that could help then, if you are able to make Vista see all of them
    morgano Bravin: one in my desk would be nice
    arabella Ella: ok so scuse my ignorance I know you can add memory to a laptop but how can you add memory to a graphics card on a laptop?
    Agatha Macbeth: Good question
    Qt Core: some graphic card have the same empty slot that motherboard have for expanding them             Agatha Macbeth: Good answer
    Dash Earthboy: good question
    Dash Earthboy: hey lila
    Agatha Macbeth: Hiya Lil :)
    Lila Darkmatter: Hi :)
    Qt Core: but maybe isn't anymore an option
    arabella Ella: but not on laptops i am told Qt?
    Mickorod Renard: i am supprised i still run at all
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hello lila
    Qt Core: Hi Lila
    Mickorod Renard: i havnt got a new viewer or anything
    arabella Ella: Hiya Lila!
    Lila Darkmatter: :))
    morgano Bravin: hi Lila
    Mickorod Renard: hi lila
    Yakuzza Lethecus: there are new laptops whom are able to support external graphic cards but that´s still new and not really a standart yet
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and that doesn´t help you either, ara :P
    Dash Earthboy: this would be a nice day for beanbag chairs
    arabella Ella: yes i heard about extternal graphics cards but seems they are something quite new as you said Qt
    arabella Ella: sorry Yaku i mean
    arabella Ella: or was it Sartre :)
    morgano Bravin: I have a laptop with docking ports
    Dash Earthboy: most laptops let you adjust how much memory you allot for video/graphics...at least PCs


    Qt Core: as many of them use the same ram you have on the mb for both the cpu and the graphic card
    Dash Earthboy: i set mine on 128M
    Dash Earthboy: and give my virtual machines about 16M of the video RAM each
    Qt Core: are those all CLI linuxes ;-)
    Qt Core: ?
    Dash Earthboy: no
    Dash Earthboy: i also run XP and NT4 and a couple Solaris vms
    Agatha Macbeth: OMG
    Dash Earthboy: plus suse, ubuntu and geOS
    arabella Ella: wow cool but I am lost when it gets to very technical stuff
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, that is certainly very technical
    Qt Core: that system is overoessed, not overclocked '-)
    Dash Earthboy: VMware has made it easy to run VMs as clients in Vista Home ;)
    Dash Earthboy: it's something called Unity
    Dash Earthboy: the XP programs show up on my Vista taskbar just like Vista apps
    Qt Core: (thinks we are starting boring both the avs and the log reader now)
    Dash Earthboy: 8 agrees *
    Agatha Macbeth: I agree with 8
    Dash Earthboy: but my Yamaha Studio works in XP but not Vista
    Qt Core: so, for the last... ten minutes of the session ;-) has someone something more pab related ?
    Dash Earthboy: so I had to learn
    Mickorod Renard: yea,,i have fallen aleep
    Agatha Macbeth: Makes a good topic as far as I'm concerned
    druth Vlodovic: the avatars will benefit from the improvement of their environment caused by greater understanding of their users
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, we might see this as preparation for the next theme session :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Probably
    Lila Darkmatter: good point, Druth :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Come back BeOS I say
    Dash Earthboy: ya AGgie
    Yakuzza Lethecus: isn´t BeOS still outthere but under a different name ?
    Agatha Macbeth: I believe so, yes
    Agatha Macbeth: Not sure what tho
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Zeta
    Qt Core: BeingOs ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Is it?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but there are different spinofffs as i see
    Agatha Macbeth: Paly as being OS

    Yakuzza Lethecus: 2010.09.09 13:00 SLT Playing as Being as Software: Pema/Eos
    Dash Earthboy: * wonders if Google's new OS will run SL as good as Linux *
    Lila Darkmatter: That session should be great, am going to try to make it
    Agatha Macbeth: GoogleOS?
    Dash Earthboy: i think Google's OS is still in Beta
    Yakuzza Lethecus: will it also be something android based ?
    Agatha Macbeth: BorgOS
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i join the collective
    Mickorod Renard: sounds good
    Agatha Macbeth: Not Victor
    Yakuzza Lethecus: restistance is furtile
    Lila Darkmatter: hahaha
    Yakuzza Lethecus: futile
    Agatha Macbeth: Furtile sounds better
    Qt Core: thinking about a furry borg...
    Agatha Macbeth: Or a borg furry
    Dash Earthboy: surrender is not an option ;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: they should assimilate furry´s too!
    Agatha Macbeth: Bjorn Borg?

    Lila Darkmatter: Bjorn free...
