    The Guardian for this meeting was Storm Nordwind. The comments are by Storm Nordwind.

    Bleu Oleander: hi Storm :)
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: how's everything going?
    Storm Nordwind: Well... I guess it's all OK :)
    Storm Nordwind: And for you?
    Bleu Oleander: great ... busy in rl
    Storm Nordwind: Is busy = good?
    Bleu Oleander: yes :)
    Storm Nordwind smiles

    Bleu comments about recent additions to the latest Art exhibition.

    Bleu Oleander: I see we're getting some photos in the village
    Storm Nordwind: Yes, although it's sometimes difficult to know who added what when they don't include a notecard!
    Bleu Oleander: so maybe we can have a session next week
    Storm Nordwind: That would be good
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Bleu Oleander: hi Yaku
    Storm Nordwind: Good afternoon Yaku
    Storm Nordwind: Greetings of the Equinox to you :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning the both of you :)
    Bleu Oleander: ah yes
    Bleu Oleander: that time already
    Storm Nordwind: Yes... and broadcast as such one or two days earlier than it actually was in US media!
    Bleu Oleander: sighs

    The Equinox was at 3:09am UTC on September  23rd (8:09pm SLT on the 22nd, SLT).

    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps a "last push" for entries for the exhibition might be good. At the moment we have the "usual suspects" + 1 new. It would be nice to see even more, perhaps to force me to replace the inner circle!
    Bleu Oleander: yes, I'll try to round up a few more
    Bleu Oleander: hi Luci
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Lucinda
    Storm Nordwind: Love the outfit :)
    Lucinda Lavender: Morning all:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey luci
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks...

    Lucinda wants to post an exhibit but is unsure how to get started.

    Lucinda Lavender: how is the puzzle event going?
    Bleu Oleander: we were just talking about that
    Bleu Oleander: are you working on yours?
    Lucinda Lavender: well I feel a little challenged
    Bleu Oleander: that's the idea :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)))
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Bleu Oleander: can we help?
    Lucinda Lavender: sure
    Lucinda Lavender: thinking about how...
    Bleu Oleander: do you have a concept?
    Lucinda Lavender: I am not awre of one at this moment but am willing to think on it
    Bleu Oleander: something you're "puzzled" about?
    Lucinda Lavender: well as always..I am forever puzzed as to whether I can look at the stars and say they are a time cpsule for who I am...
    Bleu Oleander: oh great idea
    Bleu Oleander: lots of photos going through my mind

    We help Lucinda through the mechanics.

    Lucinda Lavender: do I make a photo and put it up?
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Bleu Oleander: with a notecard
    Storm Nordwind: That's a new idea to me. Never heard it before. Perhaps it would be a good subject for an exhibit :)
    Lucinda Lavender: need the dimensions
    Bleu Oleander: same as last time
    Storm Nordwind: 640x480
    Lucinda Lavender: writing
    Lucinda Lavender: ok..
    Lucinda Lavender: somewhere between a star and a stone...
    Lucinda Lavender: a sl photo...
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: need a photo of stars/universe
    Lucinda Lavender: just search it?
    Bleu Oleander: just look up :)
    Lucinda Lavender: can I plce two items together and then get them in the photo together?
    Lucinda Lavender: place
    Bleu Oleander: sure
    Lucinda Lavender: ok

    I offer a texture that may help.

    Storm Nordwind: I have a picture of the eagle nebula it that would help. You could have a copy
    Lucinda Lavender: great!
    Lucinda Lavender: beautiful!
    Lucinda Lavender: now all I need is a crystal...
    Storm Nordwind: I used it for the inside of the (soon to be dismantled) Kira Dome
    Bleu Oleander: :(
    Hubble-eagle-nebula-small-for-wiki.jpgLucinda Lavender: so sorry Storm..
    Storm Nordwind shrugs
    Storm Nordwind: needs must
    Lucinda Lavender: magnificent picture!
    Lucinda Lavender: to change its size...
    Lucinda Lavender: the best ratio
    Storm Nordwind: It's a square pic. But you can't use it as is. You'd have to create something in SL with that texture on it - plus your crystal and anything else you want - and take the 640x480 snapshot of it
    Lucinda Lavender: great
    Storm Nordwind: (At least those are the normal rules for the exhibits!)
    Bleu Oleander: sounds great
    Lucinda Lavender: I would be happy to put it on the ground or on a box...
    Lucinda Lavender: on a plot
    Storm Nordwind: Then you could include a notecard with the exhibit and include a landmark to your plot so people could see it in 3D
    Bleu Oleander: exactly
    Lucinda Lavender: ah! cool

    Lucinda is inspired.

    Lucinda Lavender: this is a must do for me
    Storm Nordwind: Yay!
    Bleu Oleander: terrific!
    Lucinda Lavender: just because I have been putting it off for so long
    Storm Nordwind: You will have all the help you need. Just ask!
    Bleu Oleander: yes :)
    Lucinda Lavender: ok soon must go to work
    Lucinda Lavender: but am thinking of this afternoon
    Lucinda Lavender: best done promptly or I will let it go perhaps...
    Storm Nordwind smiles and nods
    Bleu Oleander: when will you be in sl and I'll try to be around incase you need some help
    Lucinda Lavender: I will look for you...today then after 5 pmsl...
    Lucinda Lavender: do I need to put a box on a plot?

    I create a guardian plot for Lucinda.

    Bleu Oleander: do you have a plot Luci?
    Lucinda Lavender: no
    Lucinda Lavender: I would like one near the exhibit for ease
    Lucinda Lavender: I think there might be a few nearby to there
    Storm Nordwind: there are
    Lucinda Lavender: ok
    Storm Nordwind: In fact there is one free exactly to the south of the exhibition dome, next to Bleu's
    Lucinda Lavender: et's use that
    Bleu Oleander: perfect
    Storm Nordwind: What would you like it to be called and I will divide it off right now!
    Lucinda Lavender: between a star and a stone
    Storm Nordwind: There is a stone base on it at the moment. Would you like it removed so it is just bare grass?
    Lucinda Lavender: well can we place this on the stone base?
    Storm Nordwind: That is completely up to you! :)
    Lucinda Lavender: or maybe it is better image without?
    Lucinda Lavender: does the stone texture show through?
    Storm Nordwind: I guess you could try it both ways.
    Lucinda Lavender: I would try on stone first...

    It is done.

    Storm Nordwind: I have partitioned your plot now and named it as you wish :)
    Lucinda Lavender: wonderful
    Bleu Oleander: looking forward to seeing what you do!
    Lucinda Lavender: this is a happy moment for me!
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Bleu Oleander: I'll see you later Luci ..... have to go .... bye all :)
    Storm Nordwind: Bye!
    Bleu Oleander: thanks for your help Storm
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care bleu
    Lucinda Lavender: so, I go there and put the picture on?
    Lucinda Lavender: bye bleu...see you...
    Storm Nordwind: Yes you can do that. And anything else that belongs to the exhibit - like a sculpture/crystal/whatever
    Lucinda Lavender: shall I save this photo in the unconstrained format for now?
    Storm Nordwind: And on the plot there can be more than one picture, because your snapshot can include them all int one
    Storm Nordwind: Sure
    Lucinda Lavender: ok
    Lucinda Lavender: lovely!
    Lucinda Lavender: so glad you were here today
    Lucinda Lavender: or I was...
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: well shall get to the day...take care all...
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye you both
    Lucinda Lavender: waving too
