    Pema Pera: Hoi Darren, leuk je hier weer te zien!
    Darren Islar: hey :)
    Pema Pera: Ik herinnerde me dat niemand voorgesteld had om hier om deze tijd te komen vandaag
    Darren Islar: ah, vandaar
    Pema Pera: dus ik kwam maar even een oogje in het zeil houden
    Darren Islar: en je mag nog even blijven, want ik doe geen GoC-duties meer
    Pema Pera: ja hoor, geen probleem
    Pema Pera: hoe gaat het ermee?
    Darren Islar: ja, langzaam, heel langzaam gaat het wat beter
    Darren Islar: ik krijg wat meer ruimte, en hoe weinig dat ook is, het heeft een goed effect op mijn humeur :)
    Darren Islar: hey QT

    Pema Pera: they sprung that on me six hours ago :-)
    Darren Islar: congratulations :)
    Pema Pera: thank you :)

    Pema Pera: well, in Holland we have the odd custom of congratulating somebody not only for their own birthday, but also for that of their family and friends
    Darren Islar: I'm sure there will be others to remind you in sl :)
    Pema Pera: so we get congratulated a lot each year
    Darren Islar: yes and that si getting worse
    Qt Core: as in telling you are lucky to have such persons in your life ? nice
    Pema Pera: "congratulations with your uncle's birthday" . . . "with your nephew's birthday" . . . and so on
    Darren Islar: everybody is gratulating everyobdy now on a birthday party :)
    Pema Pera: I guess that is one aspect, Qt :-)

    Archmage Atlantis: Bithdays and greeting rituals, heh.
    Pema Pera: I came in mainly because I realized that nobody had volunteered for this slot
    Qt Core: it is a good way to start a lazy ssunday in europe, pema
    Pema Pera: and I wanted to make sure the log got picked up -- which I did; I'll post it later
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah, you in Japan today, Pema?

    Archmage Atlantis: Bye Pema
    Darren Islar: I am glad there is a pillow between you and me QT :)
    Darren Islar: that point looks quite dangerous :)
    Qt Core: You are quite young Huracan
    Qt Core: ;-)
    Huracan Khaos: So what now when Pema is gone?
    Darren Islar: we just continue
    Archmage Atlantis: Young in SL time
    Huracan Khaos: You think QT Core?
    Huracan Khaos: ok :D

    Huracan Khaos: yes
    Huracan Khaos: but also in RL
    Huracan Khaos: but not two days child
    Darren Islar: :)
    Darren Islar: a child in sl :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Takes a bit to get used to the way things are referenced in SL
    Qt Core: a two days old kid with rock attire would be interesting ;-)
    Darren Islar: :)
    Huracan Khaos: :-)
    Huracan Khaos: I cant speak engklish wery well.. so sometimes I get lost here
    Darren Islar: brb
    Archmage Atlantis: What's with the aquatic bug look this day, QT?
    Huracan Khaos: whats brb :)
    Archmage Atlantis: be right back
    Qt Core: don't worry, the official language is not english but typonese (for typing errors)
    Wol Euler: good morning everyone
    Huracan Khaos: Hi!
    Qt Core: and not everyone here is a native english speaker, so we understand that
    Wol Euler: wow, qt, what an unusual av.
    Bertram Jacobus: hi and good morning from cologne ! :-)
    Qt Core: Hi Wol
    Wol Euler: hello bert!
    Qt Core: and hi bert
    Huracan Khaos: Hi bert
    Archmage Atlantis: Someone knocks on the door, and you're letting others know you're afk for a bit.......afk is away from the keyboard
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, Wol....Hi Bert :)
    Bertram Jacobus: ah wol - you advanced to a fracture host/ess ? already since a long time ? :-)
    Qt Core: and Arch, i was taking a pic for the art project
    Wol Euler: just yesterday!
    Wol Euler: got a tipjar and everything :)
    Bertram Jacobus: whaow - cool ! congratulations ! ;-)
    Wol Euler: ty :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe - tipjar ! even that ! ... :-)
    Archmage Atlantis: *g*.......guess I'll have to make an effort to see the exhibit then, QY *g*
    Wol Euler: yeah. I donate the money to Fracture's tier costs
    Bertram Jacobus: so now you have to entertain the people there with shouting yeahaa and yipiieh and such ? ;o)
    Wol Euler: erm, no.
    Wol Euler: on the contrary
    Wol Euler: I ban people from Fracture for doing that.
    Bertram Jacobus: lol. aww - how sayd ! ;o)
    Bertram Jacobus: sad*
    Wol Euler: I greet newcomers and tell them how to dance, and remind people to tip the DJs
    Qt Core: (Huracan: there are slow session where we don't go very deep into reality misteries and meditations :) )
    Wol Euler laughs.
    Archmage Atlantis: Oh, kewl.....a host/ess gig.......
    Huracan Khaos: sure ok
    Bertram Jacobus: oh. sry huracan - i appreciate going deep into those topics qt mentions also very much - are you interested in something special about such ?
    Wol Euler: I wanted the title to say "hostpersonthing" but they wouldn't change it
    Qt Core: and others where we go deep inside ourselves, discover the inner child and let it out... like fridays 1pm sessions ;-)
    Archmage Atlantis: :)
    Wol Euler: yes, we are usually more serious than this.
    Wol Euler: except fridays
    Archmage Atlantis: how about Host Entity?
    Bertram Jacobus: i wouldn´t sign your statement wol :o)
    Bertram Jacobus: oops
    Huracan Khaos: let inner child go out?
    Bertram Jacobus: [sry : silence 90 secs] ...
    Qt Core: (just being silly, Hurracan, sorry it was an inside joke, can't resist)
    Huracan Khaos: ;-)
    Bertram Jacobus: aren´t inside jokes terrible for outsiders ? and in this special case, i´m also such an outsider. happy to accompany others potentially ...
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, sort of a joke, QT......the reference to the "inner child" comes from Psychology
    Qt Core: (i can't resist a good joke, inside or not... and the decision about it being good is obviously quite subjective)
    Archmage Atlantis: Sometimes the sessions here are more philosophical, sometimes more light hearted.....sometimes a mix
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. and all that may be important ...
    Darren Islar: hi everoyone new :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hi darren
    Archmage Atlantis: And sometimes we spend most of the time saying hi and bye to each other *g*
    Huracan Khaos: Hi Darren :D
    Wol Euler grins.
    Bertram Jacobus: but it´s more polite then to do not - i mean : no greetings
    Huracan Khaos: It is ok
    Darren Islar: QT, please don't look at me and point that thing at me ;)
    Huracan Khaos: so you meet regurarly
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: oh yes, four times a day
    Bertram Jacobus: and nearly all people i talk about that say they would appreciate it ...
    Archmage Atlantis: It is nice to be acknowledged with a greeting, true Bert
    Wol Euler: 1am 7am 1pm 7pm
    Wol Euler: not always the same people, obviously :)
    Huracan Khaos: you know each other .. is here some hard core?
    Qt Core: it seem to have its own idea of what to do and who to poke, darren, sorry
    Wol Euler: only in private.
    Wol Euler grins.
    Darren Islar: :) QT
    Huracan Khaos: who to poke :D
    Bertram Jacobus: i think, it is normal, that some people are more here and others less -
    Wol Euler: yes, most of us attend regularly.
    Wol Euler: most of those who are here now, I meant
    Huracan Khaos: why you do it?
    Huracan Khaos: ah
    Darren Islar: well, there is a group and you will see many faces at different times, but also vere familiar ones (after a while that is)
    Archmage Atlantis: Right, not always the same people.....though there does tend to be a pattern as the day and night move around the world
    Wol Euler: for myself, it's a social moment. A community of friends
    Wol Euler: the discussions are also interesting
    Huracan Khaos: good
    Bertram Jacobus: same here. and the common interset in being
    Bertram Jacobus: interest
    Wol Euler: and I do meditate and the sessions that focus on that are useful
    Huracan Khaos: sounds good
    Wol Euler: but basically SL is a large part of my social life, and this is part of that
    Qt Core: i don't meditate and yet those sessions are useful too ;-)
    Wol Euler smiles at QT
    Darren Islar: and some times and days are lazy, some geeky, others serious
    Bertram Jacobus: i think, tpoics like meditation, being, researching reality, meditating, philosophy, religion ... all linked ... and topics of interest of all here. again : more or less
    Bertram Jacobus: bah - so many typos again - sry plz
    Bertram Jacobus: sometimes also quiet ...
    Huracan Khaos: session is each day?
    Darren Islar: four times a day
    Huracan Khaos: :D
    Archmage Atlantis: I think the main reason come is that there are always interesting people here, who share life experiences through this meetings purpose as a lens.........the PaB wiki expllains a lot
    Darren Islar: every six hours
    Wol Euler: 1am 7am 1pm 7pm
    Huracan Khaos: Oh
    Bertram Jacobus: slt (second life time, on the top, right on our screens)
    Huracan Khaos: oh i see thx
    Archmage Atlantis: SL time = California US time
    Huracan Khaos: Is here someone from california?
    Wol Euler: not right now, but we do have californian members
    Archmage Atlantis: Prbly not Huracan, It is almost 2 AM there
    Huracan Khaos: here in my country is 11am
    Qt Core: same here
    Darren Islar: but Californian time is used because your avatar is dwelling there somewhere on one of the servers (or rahter a few I suppose)
    Wol Euler: sure, it's easier to give one time than to state it in all 24 timezone
    Archmage Atlantis: Yea, it is 5 AM here, US East Coast.......I have a tendency to wake up early
    Huracan Khaos: good morning :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe - i think it is because it´s the home of linden labatories ? ...
    Wol Euler: after you've been in SL for a while, you will find yourself converting to US time automatically
    Bertram Jacobus: sry afk - brb
    Darren Islar: yes Bert
    Qt Core: if you leave out the 2/3 week mess around daylight saving time changes that is ;-)
    Wol Euler: ha! yse
    Darren Islar: there are really strange things visible today :)
    Qt Core: approaching in a few weeks
    Wol Euler: the americans are not clever enough to change time when everyone else in the world does.
    Wol Euler shrugs
    Qt Core: !
    Wol Euler really wants a rideable version of Bert's airplane thingy
    Qt Core: ok, time to go doing some cooking
    Huracan Khaos: So what topic is today.. birthdays or what ? :D
    Wol Euler: bye qt, bon appetit
    Darren Islar: no, I guess explaining PaB to a newcoer :)
    Huracan Khaos: Bye QT
    Qt Core: bye all, have fun!
    Darren Islar: sometimes we don't really have a topic
    Darren Islar: bye QT
    Huracan Khaos: bye bye
    Huracan Khaos: ok :)
    Archmage Atlantis: It has nothing to do with being clever, Wol, it has to do with being unaware that we are part of the rest of the world now........and the British element in creating the governmentss :)
    Wol Euler nods. I was being cynical, sorry.
    Archmage Atlantis: Bye, AT
    Archmage Atlantis: *QT
    Huracan Khaos: I only wanted to dhare i like receiving presents ;-)
    Huracan Khaos: *share
    Darren Islar: I need to go too, lots of stuff to do, both in rl as in sl

    Huracan Khaos: ok so see ya
    Darren Islar: see you :)
    Huracan Khaos: ok while you are here..you could help me.. where can i get new hairs :D

    Wol Euler: I'm not sure how that looks, off the top of my head.
    Huracan Khaos: :-)
    Wol Euler: there is probably a tab in the windows marked "all", click on it
    Archmage Atlantis: I'm using v2 Wol, what control are you looking for?
    Wol Euler: in the search, you can set the maturity categories to be displayed
    Wol Euler: pg, mature, adult
    Wol Euler: or perhaps that is only in preferences in v2?
    Huracan Khaos: somewhere i saw adult things button so ionly to find where :)
