    Archmage Atlantis: This connection is so slow that by the time I see and hear the bell, the 90 sec is over :)
    arabella Ella: from the bit I have seen you have done a really excellent job Storm thank you so much!!
    Storm Nordwind: Yes Agatha - I've just realized the touring balloon needs reprogramming! :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, of course...
    Storm Nordwind: It goes to the Cafe and will deposit people into thin air :)
    arabella Ella: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ooops
    Storm Nordwind: Well that depends on the rider ;-)
    Hana Furlough: okay this is going to sound newbie-ish, but how do i get to the cafe?
    Agatha Macbeth: I travelled that ballon very first time I came here :)
    Storm Nordwind: You get up from where you are Hana, and turn left and walk for 50 metres or so
    Archmage Atlantis: Have you ever tallied up the hours you've spent on creating and maintaining Kira & PaB Storm?
    Hana Furlough: ok great
    Agatha Macbeth: Everything is together now Hana, kinda university-campus-ish
    Storm Nordwind does the hollow laugh thing for Arch
    Agatha Macbeth: wb Wol :)

    Hana Furlough: i'll have to wander over there sometime
    arabella Ella: wb Wol
    Archmage Atlantis: Understands :)
    arabella Ella: I would love to see the thing you put in the sky Storm not sure what it is called, the molecules?
    Storm Nordwind: The Molecule... it's the thing that used to be next to the Cafe, only it's set 150m higher than it was
    arabella Ella: how can i find it though Storm?
    Storm Nordwind: Just fly up from anywhere here and you'll see it
    arabella Ella: oh ok ty
    arabella Ella: so it is over the pavillion?
    Storm Nordwind: If you click on "Map" you'll see its extent
    Agatha Macbeth: It's a *very* prominent landmark :)
    Storm Nordwind: It just misses the pavilion
    arabella Ella: ah
    Agatha Macbeth: If you pull back so you can Jeogeot in its entirety, you can locate Bieup right away because of the Molecule!
    Storm Nordwind: Several people were quite attached to it and I've had no ill reports, so I packaged it up and moved it
    Agatha Macbeth: I like it
    Wol Euler nods.
    Hana Furlough: maybe someone can take me on a tour sometime...
    Hana Furlough: i'd love to see it
    arabella Ella: excellent idea Storm thanks!
    Archmage Atlantis: Is jogeot a word?
    Storm Nordwind: I will reprogram the touring balloon next to the beacon and it can take you there
    Storm Nordwind: Probably a Korean word Arch
    Agatha Macbeth: Jeogeot is the island (continent?) we're on Arch
    Wol Euler: wow
    Wol Euler: fancy that
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah
    Darren Islar: hi everyone :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Dbl Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: In the south of the world map

    Agatha Macbeth: Just me, but I love to know where I am relative to everything else
    arabella Ella: mee tooo Ags!
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    arabella Ella: although it was one of the difficult things to get used to at first here on SL
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes
    Hana Furlough: yeah.... that's why i feel lost all the time
    arabella Ella: it takes some getting used to
    Storm Nordwind: There were no roads for a long time and few other stable structures (apart from coastlines)
    Agatha Macbeth: When I find a place of interset now the first thing i do is locate it on the map relative to Bieup
    arabella Ella nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Hiya Mick :)
    arabella Ella whispers Hiya Mick!
    Archmage Atlantis: Finally, a few polka dots are appearing
    Darren Islar: hi Mick

    Hana Furlough: lol!!!
    Storm Nordwind smiles at Mick's speed typing :)
    Hana Furlough: how do i turn it off?
    Agatha Macbeth: Mick's mic :))
    Wol Euler: Edit menu/Preferences/Voice chat
    Hana Furlough: wait was it me?
    Darren Islar: no, its Mick's mic
    Mickorod Renard: didnt think so
    Agatha Macbeth: Nope, it's MR
    Wol Euler: you can set your mic to broadcast only while you hold a key down, e.g. F6
    Agatha Macbeth: I see green lines above his head
    Darren Islar: but if you don't want to listen to it you can enable the voice
    Hana Furlough: confusing...
    Mickorod Renard: strange
    Darren Islar: there is a toggle button on the screen
    Agatha Macbeth: I have one but never use it
    Mickorod Renard: can u still here me?
    Darren Islar: no, you are in the clear :)
    Mickorod Renard: great
    Mickorod Renard: ty
    Agatha Macbeth: Seems quiet now :)
    Storm Nordwind: Your TV/Radio is no longer broadcasting :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I've noticed that v2 and phoenix both ignore my changes in preferences at times, or maybe there is some hotkey I'm fat fingering
    Agatha Macbeth: I have heard Bleu's dog in voice before now :p
    Hana Furlough: lol!
    Storm Nordwind: That's a regular occurrence Aggers
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Agatha Macbeth: Hee
    Wol Euler: I was listening to a singer/guitarist at a club, when her cat got into the room and wanted attention :)
    Mickorod Renard: yes, i did switch the broadcast off when u said
    Agatha Macbeth: Awww
    Darren Islar: hehehe

    Mickorod Renard: excuse me not being very proactive, i am so nackered
    arabella Ella: it really helped to feel the spirit of the retreat
    Agatha Macbeth: Overwork Mick?
    Storm Nordwind hopes that Wol's account will inspire many people to consider attending future retreats
    Darren Islar: children maybe ?
    Mickorod Renard: lack of sleep me thinks
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh dear
    arabella Ella: i am sure it will Storm :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Least you don't need to worry about the gardens till next summer!
    Mickorod Renard: I can make the assissi one
    Mickorod Renard: but nobody talks about it
    Wol Euler: we did :)
    arabella Ella: ah Mick the details will be out now that Stuttgart is over
    arabella Ella: you need to be less impatient :)
    Mickorod Renard: I am getting suspicious that perhaps noone wants me to go on it :)
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Wol Euler: awwwwww
    Storm Nordwind: We would never tell you that - not to your face anyway ;-)
    Mickorod Renard: me, less impatient,,that wouldnt be Micko
    arabella Ella giggles
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Try less paranoid then ;-)
    Mickorod Renard: are you going to Assisi Wol?
    Wol Euler: very unlikely, mick, sad to say
    Agatha Macbeth: St Francis will miss you
    Wol Euler: I will definitely go to Nova Scotia again
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Wol Euler: :)
    Mickorod Renard: I felt quite sad that i couldn't get outa work for the stutgard one
    Wol Euler nods
    Wol Euler: we talked about all the missing pabonauts :)
    arabella Ella: yes i am sure more people would love to attend the retreats but the dates and cost are also factors plus other personal stuff of course
    Wol Euler: well, there are moves afoot to deal with that, ara.
    arabella Ella: oh good
    Wol Euler: nothing definite yet, but we were talking about nine hour retreats
    Wol Euler: in the tradition of nine second meditations :)
    Wol Euler: from noon Saturday to noon Sunday
    Mickorod Renard: ohh,,i was hoping u were going to say that we didnt have to work any more
    Wol Euler: heh
    Darren Islar: :)
    Wol Euler: I can say it, sure, but that won't actually help much
    Agatha Macbeth: Works for me [grin]
    Mickorod Renard: :(
    Mickorod Renard: retirement retreat sounds better
    arabella Ella: nice idea
    arabella Ella: (to both Mick and Wol)
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe Zen will organise one...
    arabella Ella: a weekend retreat in Rome would suit me fine :)
    Mickorod Renard: mm,,,when in rome and all that
    Agatha Macbeth: SPQR
    arabella Ella: la dolce vita Mick?
    Mickorod Renard: is that a good pizza place?
    Agatha Macbeth: Probably
    Darren Islar: those 9 hours retreat are going to take place in rl?
    Agatha Macbeth: What is it with the number 9?
    Wol Euler: oh yes, sorry, more diffferent RL retreats
    arabella Ella: thousands of good pizza places in rome mick
    arabella Ella: spoilt for choice
    Darren Islar: ok
    Darren Islar: .
    Darren Islar: in a way that makes it more expensive
    Mickorod Renard: nine comes after 4,,that makes it wierd
    Darren Islar: though it works better for the ones having a job
    Agatha Macbeth: And after 7 too :)
    Mickorod Renard: yea
    Wol Euler: and families
    Storm Nordwind: And pie
    Wol Euler: and general laziness too
    Agatha Macbeth grins @ Storm
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Wol Euler coughs
    arabella Ella: i suppose it depends on how far one must travel Darren as some low cost airlines have good deals
    Agatha Macbeth pats Wol on the back
    Wol Euler: :)
    Mickorod Renard: yes, especially if you have no luggage
    Agatha Macbeth: No luggage = HEAVEN
    Darren Islar: true Ara
