    Freud Jungsten: osiyo
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey wol :)
    Wol Euler: oh, where's blub?
    Bruce Mowbray: OMG --- I will wake him up!!!!
    Wol Euler: please do.
    Wol Euler cheers
    Wol Euler: hello bert
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Bert!
    Freud Jungsten: Wol.. considering our last chat... considering what we talked about, I think there was an attempt to answer my question, it was just so odd to me I did not register the responses as answers.
    Bertram Jacobus: hey bodies ! ;-)
    Wol Euler grins
    Wol Euler: glad to hear that, freud :)
    Wol Euler: odd is acceptable, none at all would have been bad.
    Bruce Mowbray listens intently to Freud.
    Freud Jungsten: I am not sure they were answer though.. just an idea... lol
    Freud Jungsten: I tired skimming the wiki thing agin but did not get anywhere.
    Wol Euler: well, we could talk about what "answer" means :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Can you refresh us on the Q/A?
    Wol Euler: perhaps an answer is "something that helps you along your path"
    Wol Euler: however the giver intended it
    Freud Jungsten: I need to go back and look...
    Wol Euler: like all the folk stories where the quester is given the answer to his challenge by somebody who doesn't know that it is an answer
    Freud Jungsten: To not leave people wondering.
    Freud Jungsten: We were toalking about the whole time/the past discussions.
    Wol Euler: bruce, when we me this morning, Freud and I were talking about talking about time
    Wol Euler: (not a typo :)
    Wol Euler: she said that she had asked questions here that didn't get answered.
    Freud Jungsten: I found nothing in those discussions, and ansks some questions that I thought went unanswered.
    Wol Euler: and that shall we say worried me.
    Freud Jungsten: But I think what migth have happened is that the answers were so off from what I was expexting that I did not realise they were answers.
    Wol Euler nods.
    Wol Euler: tha happens around philosophers :)
    Bruce Mowbray: @ Freud and Wol --- Would you mind repeating the Q/A for us here?
    Wol Euler: bruce, it was as generic as I restated it now :)
    Bruce Mowbray: OK -- so, very general Q's about time itself?
    Freud Jungsten: I was wondering why all the discussions about the past that seemed to go nowhere or have any use... from my perspetive.
    Wol Euler: oh, I see. From this morning ... I'd have to check the chatlogs and they are on hte other computer
    Freud Jungsten: So Wol summed up some thoughts.
    Wol Euler: I'll just quickly post that log, shall I?
    Bertram Jacobus: why not (?) ... :-)
    Freud Jungsten: That would be much better.
    Bertram Jacobus: title yellow labeled : bert :o)
    Bruce Mowbray: Please, if you would, Wol.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thx
    Wol Euler: wiki is frozen again so I'll distribute it here as a note for now.

    Fritz Westerlow: not german anymore:))
    Wol Euler: we do.
    Fritz Westerlow: is anybody from russia?
    Fritz Westerlow: or from netherlands?
    Wol Euler: since the majority don't speak german
    Bertram Jacobus: no sry official language is english here - the world and sl common language - although i´m german too :o)
    Freud Jungsten: English is not my native either.
    Fritz Westerlow: and can we use the microphone?
    Wol Euler: we have two regular Dutch visitors, but neither is here today
    Wol Euler: Alf is Russian, when he wakes up
    Alfred Kelberry: huh?

    Freud Jungsten: I am about to get busy again, so please don't go out of your way to accomidate me.
    Bruce Mowbray: thanks, Fritz.
    Wol Euler: I infer from that question that you haven't been here before, Fritz?
    Wol Euler: well, that solves that problem
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye -- Poof!
    Bertram Jacobus: schwupps - away (fritz) :o)

    Wol Euler: hello zon
    Zon Quar: heya
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey zon
    Wol Euler: is it my imagination or is everyone particularly quiet today?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, your impression is correct
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i was telling storm and bleu before that there is a full package of sim on a stick
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://dwellonit.taterunino.net/sim-on-a-stick/
    Wol Euler nods.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and it works, it´s fun even tho that it doesn´t have voice :)
    Wol Euler: I wanted to try that this weekend
    Wol Euler: but I'll be working instead :(
    arabella Ella: what is a sim on a stick Yaku?
    arabella Ella: apologies i had some IMs
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s an opensim server for the usb stick
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it only works on windows pc´s
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s very simple to start and you can connect to ur own ,,sim" with an alternative SL compatible browser
    arabella Ella: sounds interesting
    arabella Ella: so the viewer is on the USB stick then?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no the server
    Mickorod Renard: bit beyond me i think
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s especially interesting for educators since the access to SL is often restrikted
    Yakuzza Lethecus: restricted
    arabella Ella: in what way do you see it as interesting for educators Yaku?
    arabella Ella: and how does the USB come into the story then?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: especially since you don´t need secondlife, you can have your own virtual world
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you have full access and rights, but of course there is a new learning curve
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you can dl even a few free full regrions for various purposes
    arabella Ella: wow
    arabella Ella: what is it called Yaku and how can i find out more?
    arabella Ella: altho i cannot open web now not with the viewer i use here
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://vw-standards.wikispaces.com/R...+-+USB+OpenSim
    Yakuzza Lethecus: this page provides some information about it
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://dwellonit.taterunino.net/sim-on-a-stick/
    Yakuzza Lethecus: here is a startable package
    arabella Ella: thanks!

    Wol Euler: student life!
    arabella Ella: cool Fael I dont know how you can get by with so little sleep
    Fael Illyar: I have no idea either
    Fael Illyar: and it certainly wasn't easy getting up in the morning

    Qt Core: hi Agatha
    Wol Euler: hello aggers
    Fael Illyar: Hi Aggers :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hell hello hello
    Agatha Macbeth: +o
    Qt Core: several people (even without being paid helped them for hours or days
    Qt Core: nowadays it is less international as italian sellers protested saying they were europeans too so now there are some :-)
    Agatha Macbeth: I see your shop has moved Fael :)
    Fael Illyar: Yes, still needs some work to fit it with the environment better but... I'm not sure when I'll have time for it :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Nice to see it still looks the same anyway
    Qt Core: i'm quite surprised about this year edition as i've found a peruvian booth and a thailand food one too!
    Qt Core: very european ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Where is that Qt?
    Qt Core: in rl in a nearby (to me) square)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, right
    Agatha Macbeth: A piazza :)
    Qt Core: yes
    Agatha Macbeth: Nice
    Fael Illyar: I bought a proper cooking knife today in RL :)
    Qt Core: (i never lked the english term, so bland and "boringly" geometrical)
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow
    Fael Illyar: cutting vegetables is much nicer now :)
    Agatha Macbeth: I like those electric ones
    Fael Illyar: electric cutters?
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Wol Euler snorts snortfully.
    Agatha Macbeth: Very good for squishy things like tomatoes
    Fael Illyar: I'm sure they are :)
    Wol Euler prefers a good long heavy and very sharp knife
    Wol Euler: just sayin'
    Agatha Macbeth: But I need to be careful i don't cut my finger off too
    Wol Euler: wel, yes, there is a certain amount of risk in any venture :)
    Agatha Macbeth: There is where I'm concerned, yes
    Fael Illyar: I did manage to poke my finger with it while cutting. with the sharp point. I'm not used to cutting with that big of a knife :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Eek
    Fael Illyar: not enough to make a wound though
    Agatha Macbeth: Glad to hear it
    Fael Illyar: but learned to be more careful with my other hand :D
    Qt Core: while i'm quite clumsy i never hurted myself woth a food knife (and i cook)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ha
    Agatha Macbeth: Keep it that way Qt :)
    Fael Illyar: I made Japanese style curry with rice :)
    Fael Illyar: been a long time since I last did that
    Agatha Macbeth: Yum
    Fael Illyar: well over a year
    Qt Core: lately i suggested one of this(http://www.firebox.com/product/1109/...oo-Knife-Block) but some people don't like it around here
    Fael Illyar: perhaps a year and a half
    Agatha Macbeth looks
    Agatha Macbeth: Now *that* I like!
    Wol Euler: heheheheh
    Fael Illyar: that's funny :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Get the point?
    Agatha Macbeth: Looks like a circus act that went wrong
    Qt Core: it may even help vent some anger ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: True
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: watch your fingtertips when venting though
    Agatha Macbeth: Mmm
    Wol Euler: I'm told superglue is not suitable for reattachin them
    Agatha Macbeth: Alledgedly
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: angus keaton?
    Agatha Macbeth: Buster's brother?
    Fael Illyar: the curry was good... now if I could just learn to eat it more slowly :D
    Wol Euler: was that his name?
    Wol Euler: whose line is it anyway
    Agatha Macbeth: angus Deayton?
    Wol Euler: yes well done
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Agatha Macbeth: Man U fan

    Paradise Tennant: The Eight Verses of Training the Mind [Tibetan: Lo-jong Tsig Gye-ma], a classic text by Kadam Geshe Langri Thangpa, is a topic that His Holiness frequently chooses to teach. Lojong (often translated into English as Mind Training) is a practice in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on the Eight Verses formulated in Tibet by Geshe Langri Thangpa. Practitioners undertake to connect with the world in an unconditionally positive way, and also to take full responsibility for their experience of it. The practice involves redefining, reconceptualizing and reprogramming one's intent and way of thinking. The practice involves refining and purifying one's motivations and attitudes - hence "Mind Training".
