    Agatha Macbeth: :D
    Aphrodite Macbain: groan

    Er - what exactly does Liza DO to people at the Shift - fry their brains?  :DDD
    Qt Core: never liked them very much, too big for being little too little to being big (i always rooted for the tabled thing,)
    Aphrodite Macbain: hard to travel with the tabled thing
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, a good sturdy desktop is hard to beat
    Aphrodite Macbain: yup
    Agatha Macbeth: But I don't travel, so don't care
    Aphrodite Macbain: makes life simpler :-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Mmm

    Yakuzza Lethecus: stop
    arabella Ella: great minds eh!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: onigokko
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Agatha Macbeth waves to Qt
    Qt Core waves back
    Yakuzza Lethecus: stop
    Agatha Macbeth: Anyways...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: 13:30 minutes of silence and 90 seconds of onigokko
    Agatha Macbeth: Sounds like a fair balance
    arabella Ella: i tried to download phoenix today but was not successful
    arabella Ella: kept on getting that page could not be accessed try again
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Agatha Macbeth: I didn't have any probs when I did it
    arabella Ella: yes maybe more gremlins?
    arabella Ella: it felt weird
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    arabella Ella: i will try again tomorrow
    Agatha Macbeth: Not sure if there's a new version out
    arabella Ella: at the moment i use emergence but seems like phoenix has more support and is more similar to emerald
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, it is :)
    Agatha Macbeth: But I'm seeing you as using Viewer 2, which is strange
    arabella Ella: oh
    arabella Ella: i am definitely using Emergence which is another third party viewer
    Agatha Macbeth: My radar doesn't even recognise Mick's viewer...
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Agatha Macbeth: So I can't guess what it is
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i guess mick is still on the old viewer 1 ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: are you mick ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, could be
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow, didn't know anybody still had that!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i was surprised when i installed the latest imprudence
    arabella Ella: or that it was still possible to use it
    Agatha Macbeth: My very first viewer
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it is still very much like the old sl viewer
    Mickorod Renard: sorry, yes still on the old one
    Yakuzza Lethecus: how could you mick ? :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :P
    Mickorod Renard: and in fact,,i downloaded it onto my later laptop too
    Agatha Macbeth: Good for you :)
    Mickorod Renard: when u get old like me then these modern thingies are just an added complication
    Agatha Macbeth: Tell me
    Agatha Macbeth: Like Wol said 'Whoever created Viewer 2 obviously never uses SL'
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i always wonder why ppl prefer using text
    Yakuzza Lethecus: mankind used voice for so many 1000 years
    Mickorod Renard: if it aint broke dont fix it
    Qt Core: with time you get used even to v2  (Really? :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and then suddenly everyone wants to use some unnatural modern thing called writing
    Qt Core: especially after they got the cam control back togheter
    Yakuzza Lethecus: really weird :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, here it's to do with the recording I would think
    Agatha Macbeth: Text isn't so bad
    Agatha Macbeth: No accents :)
    arabella Ella: words give me time to think
    Qt Core: yes, but learning to write and read a different language is easier
    Qt Core: you can correct your phrase before sendng it
    Agatha Macbeth: Easier for the hard of hearing (like Arch)
    Qt Core: (that is if we don't choose one of the most awful spelled language in the world)
    Mickorod Renard: my hearing is poor too
    Agatha Macbeth: There you go, Mick :p
    Mickorod Renard: especially when listening to women
    Agatha Macbeth glares at Mr Renard :D
    arabella Ella: oh so now males speak more clearly do they?
    Agatha Macbeth: Ha
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i have to drop myself in my bed, sleep well everyone
    Yakuzza Lethecus: only europeans today
    Agatha Macbeth: Schlaf gut Yaku
    Mickorod Renard: nite yaku
    Yakuzza Lethecus: danke, du auch agatha!
    Qt Core: 'night yaku
    arabella Ella: nite Yaku
    Mickorod Renard: I read the attachment that Pema sent via the email,,re play as being
    arabella Ella nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, I didn't see that
    Mickorod Renard: I wondered what we do here
    Agatha Macbeth looks
    arabella Ella: it is from a couple of days ago Ags
    arabella Ella: about his new book chapter
    arabella Ella: so what u reckon Mick?
    Agatha Macbeth: I probably delated it by accident [sigh]
    Mickorod Renard: I do that
    Agatha Macbeth: Hmm...
    Mickorod Renard: otherwise i would be too popular
    Agatha Macbeth: Course ya would
    arabella Ella: well i think there were quite a few replies to him
    arabella Ella: i replied today then Ewan did too
    Agatha Macbeth: But you're popular anyway
    Mickorod Renard: yes, do u know Ewan?
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, I missed the original but I have your reply Ara...
    Mickorod Renard: me popular?,,if only
    Agatha Macbeth: Got the link...
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm, yes...I'll take a look at that
    Mickorod Renard: I guess it puts it in words that I can understand,,always helpful,,,but I seem so distracted with so many practices at the moment I find it all a bit too much

    The blonde one poofs....
    Agatha Macbeth: Oops, we lost Ara :(
    Mickorod Renard: I sometimes wish that I could let go of my responsibilities,,then I could live life as portrayed in all these spiritual guidances

    I read on....
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, that's very good
    Agatha Macbeth: Trust Pem
    Agatha Macbeth: Isn't that the real trick tho Mick?
    Mickorod Renard: yes, i guess it is
    Agatha Macbeth: Just workin out the best way of acheiving it, and what works for you
    Mickorod Renard: I sometimes feel like the two ways of life just dont work together
    Agatha Macbeth: Like two different people existing side by side
    Qt Core: winning a lottery may help... or not :-)
    Mickorod Renard: like this week i am on holiday,,but i am so conditioned to working at stuff I cannot chill out enough to relax and appreciate what i have around me
    Agatha Macbeth: It might help me :p (to Qt)
    Agatha Macbeth understands that (to Mick)
    Agatha Macbeth: Switching can be difficult sometimes
    Qt Core: time to go sleep for me, bye all
    Mickorod Renard: it was beautiful today,,I could have gone for a nice meditational walk
    Agatha Macbeth: Ciao Qt
    Mickorod Renard: bye qt

    arabella Ella: hiya!
    Mickorod Renard: but i felt a sense of responsibility to stay close to family and do some chores
    Agatha Macbeth: Well that's fair enough
    arabella Ella: i just came back to say goodnight
    Mickorod Renard: not really,,i shud have enjoyed the beauty
