    The Guardian for this meeting was Agatha Macbeth. The comments are by Agatha Macbeth.

    First up, a little background information: Bruce has been immobilised as a floating cloud on his PaB plot for the last two days (nobody quite seems to know how or why), unable to log out or in.  For this reason he was being represented at the session by Io.

    Aphrodite Macbain: hello io, zon, barcalona
    Barcalona Rhapsody: hi all
    Io Larkspur: Ciao, Aph, Barca, and Zon.
    Aphrodite Macbain: what time is it SL time?
    Io Larkspur: SL time is 1:05 p.m.
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sure
    Barcalona Rhapsody: and its 22.05 here in holland
    Barcalona Rhapsody: evening
    Aphrodite Macbain: ah thanks. My timing is perfect!
    Io Larkspur: Cool! I should have said, 13:05.
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Io Larkspur: Thank you for wearing the solidarity shirt, Aph.
    Io Larkspur: I've tried to contact SL, but so far they have not freed Bruce and Blub.
    Aphrodite Macbain: well, it's the least I can do...
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello everybody :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: hi
    Io Larkspur: I do appreciate it and will tell Bruce when he emerges from his present catatonic state.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Agatha, Laura
    Io Larkspur: Hey, aggers!
    Agatha Macbeth: Io, weren't you a girl when last we met? [grin]
    Io Larkspur: Perhaps -- I am versatile.
    Io Larkspur: ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Aren't we all ;-)   [cough cough]
    Aphrodite Macbain: sounds like it. weren't you called Margaret or Ruth before?
    Agatha Macbeth: That was Steve I think :p
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Zon
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hey zon, don't be shy
    Barcalona Rhapsody: well i go again
    Agatha Macbeth: So how's Bruce?
    Io Larkspur: Enjoy the rest of your day, Barca!
    Agatha Macbeth waves to Barca
    Zon Quar: hi all
    Aphrodite Macbain: by barca
    Io Larkspur: It's impossible to say how Bruce is -- He has been frozen on his guardian plot for over two days.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, I noticed - how did it happen?
    Aphrodite Macbain: he ignores me when I walk through him
    Io Larkspur: Yes, he is in a state of suspended non-animation. . . but Blub is still bubbling -- so there' s hope.
    Agatha Macbeth: I saw Blub's bubbles, yes
    Io Larkspur: Hey, Alfred.
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Boxboy
    Aphrodite Macbain: Must be confusing for the little guy
    Aphrodite Macbain: Alfred!
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I wonder if we can appreciate Bruces appearance in cloud form
    Agatha Macbeth: The question is can Bruce appreciate it?
    Aphrodite Macbain: or Blub for that matter
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Io Larkspur: We'll have to ask them when they emerge.
    Alfred Kelberry: he hasn't showed up yet?
    Aphrodite Macbain: nope. he just hovers there like an eminence grise next to my plot
    Agatha Macbeth: There was another Av frozen by Kira café too
    Io Larkspur: Hey, Al -- Bruce and Blub are frozen over on Bruce's guardian plot. Have been for over two days.
    Aphrodite Macbain: was Kira cafe responsible?
    Alfred Kelberry: um... where is it?
    Agatha Macbeth: Not sure
    Qt Core: hi all
    Agatha Macbeth: Buona sera Qt
    Aphrodite Macbain: in Bieup
    Alfred Kelberry: oi, qt
    Agatha Macbeth: Where's what Alf?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Ciao QT
    Io Larkspur: Yes, Storm is aware that there are logging-out problems here -- and so is SL.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Brices plot
    Io Larkspur: Hey, Qt.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bruce's
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, can you give me a tp to where bruce is?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Sure. Hold on. I'll go there
    Alfred Kelberry: thank you :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Not much to see - just a cloud with bubbles
    Io Larkspur: Does anyone know the story about the Tao poster behind me and to my left?
    Agatha Macbeth looks

    Agatha Macbeth: Well, I recognise the yin/yang symbol
    Agatha Macbeth: The rest looks like a spider's web
    Io Larkspur: Yes, I just wonder who put it there and what its story is.

    I right click and examine....
    Agatha Macbeth: Cal :)
    Qt Core: i think it was Calvino in a eastern monk outfit that put it up 24 hours ago
    Io Larkspur: Oh COOOOL!
    Io Larkspur: I just touched it!

    And now, (hey presto) it begins to revolve
    Agatha Macbeth: oh, yay
    Qt Core: and it work too (details on the log, i lost them quite early :-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Kewl
    Io Larkspur: I hope Boxy and Aph are behaving themselves. . . .
    Agatha Macbeth: Knowing Boxy probably not
    Io Larkspur: Aph is in Umbria, Italy right now.
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe they can find a spell to unfreeze Bruce
    Io Larkspur: Gosh -- I surely hope so.
    Qt Core: Hi morgano
    Io Larkspur: Perhaps their spell zapped Zon.
    Io Larkspur: Hey, morgano!
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Morg :)
    morgano Bravin: hiya
    Io Larkspur: Haven't seen you in a while. . . Good to see you again.
    morgano Bravin: thankyou
    morgano Bravin: nice outfit Ags
    Agatha Macbeth: ty :)
    Qt Core: starting to worry they have fallen in a cloudying energy field and wont come back ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: We really must take you clothes shopping Morg :p
    Agatha Macbeth nods @ Qt
    morgano Bravin: I like my clothes :)
    Io Larkspur: Me too, Qt. I'm fearing there might be a black hole over there.
    Agatha Macbeth: I like them too
    Io Larkspur also likes morgano's clothes.
    Qt Core: even if i inspected that cloud for quite a long tim e a couple days ago
    morgano Bravin: I am not into shopping much
    Agatha Macbeth: It's what keeps me here ;-)
    morgano Bravin: whats this cloud?
    Qt Core: it is already a stressing necessity in rl ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Bruce is, Morg
    Agatha Macbeth: For two days
    morgano Bravin: I see..or rather I dont
    Qt Core: he is in cloud state since several days
    morgano Bravin: does he communicate?
    Io Larkspur: SL is holding him captive in a frozen state -- Blub too.
    Agatha Macbeth: What happens if you try to log in as Bruce Io?
    Io Larkspur: No, he is entirely catatonic.
    morgano Bravin: oh dear
    Io Larkspur: I have tried about three dozen times to log in as Bruce. . .
    Io Larkspur: no luck.
    morgano Bravin: poor bruce
    Io Larkspur: yeppers.
    Agatha Macbeth: Have you been in touch with Storm about it?
    Io Larkspur: Hey, Paradise!
    Agatha Macbeth: Paradise :))
    Io Larkspur: Yes, I have spoken with Storm -- we are both trying to resoplve the matter.
    Agatha Macbeth: Looking lovely as always
    morgano Bravin: maybe bruce is too heavey laden with prims?
    Io Larkspur: resolve*
    morgano Bravin: Hello Paradise
    Qt Core: hi Paradise
    Agatha Macbeth: Bruce isn't fat ;-)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles hiya lo agatha .. morgano :) qt :))
    Io Larkspur: Actually, Bruce has a lower prim value than most of us here.
    Io Larkspur: Hey, Wol!
    Paradise Tennant: is Bruce still stuck :)
    morgano Bravin: Hello Wol
    Qt Core: Hi Wol
    Wol Euler: afternoon all
    Agatha Macbeth: And hello retreater!
    Paradise Tennant: hiya wol
    Wol Euler: yes, we were just looking at him
    Agatha Macbeth: Afternoon? Where are you then?
    Wol Euler: Sl afternoon :)
    Paradise Tennant: is it possible to unstick him
    Io Larkspur: ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Duh
    Wol Euler: hello Io
    Qt Core: Aphro is back, she survived the cloudifying field!
    morgano Bravin: Hello Aphro
    Agatha Macbeth: Didn't expect to see you Wol
    Aphrodite Macbain: whew!
    Paradise Tennant: smiles hiya aphrodite :)
    Qt Core: and Alfred too
    Wol Euler grins
    Wol Euler: the retreat is going well so far
    Agatha Macbeth: What's the verdict Aphro?
    Wol Euler: Io, have you tried crashing Bruce's viewer?
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, how is everyone?
    Io Larkspur: any signs of life from Bruce/Blub?
    Aphrodite Macbain: that I'm totally useless at fixing this
    Aphrodite Macbain: greater powers than I will have to take over
    Wol Euler: blub is moving back and forth,not orbiting
    Paradise Tennant: looks hopefully at Wol who can fix most anything :)
    Io Larkspur: Yes, I crashed the viewer a few times -- The problem there is that I cannot LOG IN as Bruce -- because SL thinks he is ALREADY logged in.
    Wol Euler: ok, so the sim needs to be restarted
    Io Larkspur: because they didn't log him OUT after Saturday morning's session.
    Aphrodite Macbain: he is
    Io Larkspur: Yes, the whole sim needs to be restarted.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bruce is on the map
    morgano Bravin: Storm may be able to eject him?
    Wol Euler: have you spoken to Storm about that?
    morgano Bravin: or Perhaps any guardian can?
    Wol Euler: the landowner has to ask Linden Labs to have the server restarted
    Io Larkspur: I have spoken to Storm -- He knows all about it.
    Wol Euler: hell, why didn't I try that? brb
    Io Larkspur: He was in New York this weekend.
    Paradise Tennant: smiles hiya alfred freud :)
    Freud Jungsten: O si yo.
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Freud
    Io Larkspur: Hey, Freud!
    Freud Jungsten: How is everyone today?
    Qt Core: hi Freud
    morgano Bravin: Hi Freud and Alfred
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, Bruce is still stuck
    Wol Euler: it was worth a try
    Agatha Macbeth: No good?
    Wol Euler: no change.
    Agatha Macbeth: Aw
    arabella Ella: Hiya everyone!
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Ara :)
    Wol Euler: hello ara
    Paradise Tennant: smiles well maybe it was meant to be :)
    Io Larkspur: Hey, arabella!
    Qt Core: Hi Ara
    Paradise Tennant: hiya ara so good to see you been a long time :))))
    morgano Bravin: Hello Arabella
    Io Larkspur thinks -- What a pleasant group this is!
    arabella Ella: Hey Paradise how are you?
    arabella Ella: how lovely to see you!
    arabella Ella: :)
    Qt Core: yeah, everybody is trying to kick you out, Bruce ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Or kick him back...
    Io Larkspur: I will tell Bruce that -- I'm sure he will appreciate it.
    Wol Euler: :)
    Io Larkspur: How's the retreat in Germany going?

    Aphrodite Macbain: I really love it! Makes a nice T shirt too
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Wol Euler: "free bruce? I'll have two please"
    Io Larkspur thinks -- Indeed, perfect touch.
    Agatha Macbeth wonders what expensive Bruce is like
    Bleu Oleander: blk or whi?
    Aphrodite Macbain: perhaps we should make plackards
    Wol Euler only wears black :)
    Wol Euler: ty
    Io Larkspur: I'm sorry --- I am not able to transfer the shirt.
    Aphrodite Macbain: and march around the oak tree near the plot

    arabella Ella nods
    Paradise Tennant: part of pab history ..
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Qt Core: ty
    Aphrodite Macbain: when Bruce is finally freed it would have to have a new meaning
    Io Larkspur: I'm hoping they will be "history" soon - although I really appreciate Bleu's thoughtfulness.
    Agatha Macbeth: Thx Bleu
    Bleu Oleander: yw!
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at bleu :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: what's it like loosing your appearance?
    Bleu Oleander: funny how Blub still blows bubbles :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Do you feel like soemone else?
    Agatha Macbeth: Is that the same as 'dropping self'?
    Aphrodite Macbain: self=appearance?
    Bleu Oleander: more like cloaking self
    Agatha Macbeth: Possibly
    arabella Ella: could someone please explain what Bruce's problem is?
    Aphrodite Macbain: clouding self
    Paradise Tennant: always find it strange how easy it is to get attached to your sl self .. wonderful opportunity to drop here :)
    arabella Ella feels at a loss
    Wol Euler: short answer: he's stuck
    Aphrodite Macbain: he's lost in transition, forever emerging
    Wol Euler: clouded and immobile
    Wol Euler: can't log out
    arabella Ella: eh ... stuck where and how?
    Agatha Macbeth: Stuck as a cloud
    Aphrodite Macbain: in his very own home
    Io Larkspur thinks -- Metaphors everywhere!
    Paradise Tennant: can't log in because sl thinks he is logged in
    Agatha Macbeth: On his plot
    Aphrodite Macbain: abound
    Qt Core: north east limit of this sim
    arabella Ella: oh
    Paradise Tennant: grounded to home
    arabella Ella: curfew
    Paradise Tennant: smiles not so bad
    Aphrodite Macbain: Do you get IMs as Bruce?
    Io Larkspur wonders if there might be some other topic for discussion.....
    Wol Euler: take it as a sign of our concern, Io
    Bleu Oleander: (and lack of other subjects ... hehe)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: (Now that's odd: no bell then)
    Wol Euler: I heard one
    Agatha Macbeth: Not me
    Bleu Oleander: I heard one
    Io Larkspur: I heard the bell, too.
    Aphrodite Macbain: gets at the core of what we're about
    Agatha Macbeth: Perhaps Bruce has it
    Aphrodite Macbain: He gave it to blub to play with
    Wol Euler: I'm going to have to go, my dears. Too tired. It's been a long and exciting day and I am bushed.
    Wol Euler: take care
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Bushed :)

    Io Larkspur thinks Calvino's rotating Tao - Web poster is sooooo coooool.
    Paradise Tennant: yes it really is
    arabella Ella: yes we learnt a lot from Calvino about I Ching here last night
    arabella Ella: it was all very interesting
    Agatha Macbeth: It's a rather intersesting subject
    Io Larkspur: the 19:00 session?
    Paradise Tennant: yes i've been doing the sessions with pila .. really is a absorbing topic
    Io Larkspur: I've thrown I Ching readings for over 40 years.
    Io Larkspur: My first was in 1970 -- about the auspices for moving from Berkeley to this farm in Ohio.
    arabella Ella: the 1200 session
    Io Larkspur: I still have copies of all of the readings I have ever done.
    Agatha Macbeth: Whoa
    arabella Ella: wow cool Io
    Io Larkspur: Was not aware that there IS a 1200 session. . . (Time is so CONFUSING in SL.)
    morgano Bravin: thats impressive lo
    Agatha Macbeth: 1300?
    Io Larkspur: yeah -- 13:00 -- OK -- I can grok that.
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed, water brother
    Io Larkspur: ;-)
    Io Larkspur thinks he's a stranger in a strange land, now.
    arabella Ella: oh yes thanks Ags this session 1300 hrs
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    arabella Ella: apologies!
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Io Larkspur: Great with that allusion, aggers.

    arabella Ella: what would we do without you Ags :)
    Agatha Macbeth: What indeed?
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Io Larkspur thinks it's time to go for a long hike with RL dog Bear now.
