*Wol Euler was guardian for this session.*

Agatha Macbeth: Hi Alfiebox

Alfred Kelberry: oi

Agatha Macbeth: yo

Agatha Macbeth: We had a box party here last night

Agatha Macbeth: You would have been proud

Alfred Kelberry: um, i actually was present :)

Agatha Macbeth: Were you?

Agatha Macbeth: You mixed in with the rest then!

Agatha Macbeth: Wonder if Wol has overslept this morning?

Alfred Kelberry: she's most likely busy at work

Alfred Kelberry: i'm off as well

Alfred Kelberry: bye

Agatha Macbeth: Bye Alf

Wol Euler: morning!

Agatha Macbeth: Thought you had overslept! :p

Wol Euler: chance would be a fine thing :)

Agatha Macbeth: Good night?

Wol Euler: friday october 29, 1am

Wol Euler: yes, I slept right through.

Agatha Macbeth: Great

Wol Euler: yeah :)

Agatha Macbeth: Must have been all the box fun last night

Wol Euler grins.

Wol Euler: (IM with Bert, he can't get into the wiki)

Agatha Macbeth: Yeah I was just talking to him too

Wol Euler notices your tag.

Agatha Macbeth grins

Wol Euler: happy birthday, dear Aggers!

Wol Euler: may you have a wonderful year.

Agatha Macbeth: Thank you my dear :)

Agatha Macbeth: Chance would be a fine thing

Wol Euler can't decide whether to smile or frown at that.

Agatha Macbeth: Ha

Agatha Macbeth: Me either

Wol Euler: yaku!

Agatha Macbeth looks round

Wol Euler: assuming that the police won't be coming for you, why wouldn't you have a wonderful year?

--BELL--

Agatha Macbeth: Maybe I'm just being naturally pessimistic...

Agatha Macbeth: Has Bert solved his Wiki probs?

Wol Euler: we found the source of the problem :)

Agatha Macbeth: Ah

Agatha Macbeth: God it's dark here - can hardly see what I'm typing

Wol Euler: he was adding his logs to the *old* wiki

Agatha Macbeth: Oops

Wol Euler: yeah

Agatha Macbeth: Is that still up?

Wol Euler: I wonder how many other do that too.

Wol Euler: perhaps that explains why so many logs are unposted on the new wiki!

Agatha Macbeth: Is it still possible to post on it tho?

Wol Euler: apparently it *was* until today

Agatha Macbeth: Oh

Agatha Macbeth: That surprises me

Agatha Macbeth: But surely people would notice a large gap of many months...

Wol Euler: again,apparently not

Agatha Macbeth: OMG

Wol Euler: if they were adding to the old wiki, htey'd see their own additions and think all was fine

Wol Euler: and many people simply don't look at teh wiki! not even the "recent changes" page

Agatha Macbeth: Didn't Fael take that out?

Wol Euler: I see that all hte time: I recover a session from the autologger, post it, and then X days later somebody comes by and posts the same session again

Agatha Macbeth: Erk

Wol Euler: it's been closed down, yes; but remained open in case anyone wanted to recover anything for themselves

Agatha Macbeth: Maybe it needs to be shut down for good then

Wol Euler: that#s about to happen anyway, Mindtouch is pulling hte plug on "xxx.wik.is"

Wol Euler: the whole domain

Agatha Macbeth: Right

Agatha Macbeth: So who is the new one with again?

Wol Euler: still mindtouch *software* but our own *server*

Agatha Macbeth nods

Agatha Macbeth: Your eyes seem strange all of a sudden

Wol Euler: I think they're the same

Agatha Macbeth: Must be me

Wol Euler: if I were looking down you'd have seen the lid shadow

Wol Euler: (god I love this skin :)

Agatha Macbeth: They look a bit like Eliza's yinyang eyes

Agatha Macbeth: Yes it is nice

Wol Euler: so, birthday girl :)

Agatha Macbeth: ??

Wol Euler: what are you doing today? got the day off?

Agatha Macbeth: Yep :)

Wol Euler cheers

Agatha Macbeth: Well as soon as I leave here I'll be going shopping

Wol Euler: even better!

Wol Euler: buying in RL what you weear here? :-P

Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, really exciting

Wol Euler grins

Agatha Macbeth: No, just the usual stuff

Agatha Macbeth: Food mostly

Wol Euler: food can be exciting too

Agatha Macbeth: Well, yes

Agatha Macbeth: Depends on the food

Wol Euler: and that depends on you :)

Wol Euler: or does your local Sainsbury distribute things at gunpoint?

Wol Euler: "You will take broccoli today"

Agatha Macbeth: Not exactly

Agatha Macbeth: It's all aquestion of budget really

Wol Euler: well, yes.

Wol Euler: eeeek!

Agatha Macbeth: :)

(PKC) Black Panther: Agatha Macbeth with a crazed look on the face grabs the tail and begins to bite and tear chunks out of Wol Euler's tail. Somobdy do somthing quick!

Agatha Macbeth: (I didn't whisper)

Wol Euler: (for the log)

Agatha Macbeth: Why does that 'whisper' thing come on?

Wol Euler: happens to me too, there's some key combination that causes the little "say/whisper/shout" popup to open

Wol Euler: it seems to happen when I reach for the ' and miss it

Agatha Macbeth: Wish I knew what it was

Agatha Macbeth: So I didn't do it

Wol Euler: yeah

Wol Euler: software designers should be foerbidden on pain of amputation to put in keyboard shortcuts that cannot be disabled

--BELL--

Agatha Macbeth: I agree wholeheartedly

Wol Euler: but exciting food doesn't have to be *that* expensive. The meals we had in Halifax were lovely, unusual and delicious - and vegetarian, local even.

Agatha Macbeth: I'm not going to Canada for food! :p

Wol Euler: awwwwww

Agatha Macbeth: It's a long swim

Agatha giggles and wiggles her tail.

Wol sends chills up Agatha's spine making her arch her back and purr as Wol slowly pets their tail.

Wol Euler: this is true.

Wol Euler: and I have to admit that I don't eat that food here either.

Agatha Macbeth: This will be some log...

Wol Euler: :)

Agatha Macbeth: Ah, your eyes look normal again now

Agatha Macbeth: What's in your back pocket?

Wol Euler: heh

Wol Euler: goodies from a defunct dark-sci-fi RP sim

Wol Euler: communicator and equipment

Agatha Macbeth: Was it good?

Wol Euler: apparently, yes; but apparently not good enough for the players to want to pay for it

Wol Euler: as is so often the case

Agatha Macbeth: Oh yeah, right

Agatha Macbeth: I remember you bloggin about that

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Agatha Macbeth: The pandora one

Wol Euler: this wasn't that, that was Pandora

Wol Euler: but same principle

Wol Euler: glad to play, but wanted to play for free

Agatha Macbeth: A free lunch

Wol Euler: there were other reasons, though

Wol Euler: there was a certain amount of sexuality in the RP

Agatha Macbeth: Whoa

Agatha Macbeth: And that WASN'T worth paying for?

Wol Euler: heheheheheh. exactly!

Wol Euler: and this came up at the time that anything not suitable for American 6-yr-old pruderie had to move to Zimbra

Agatha Macbeth: Right

Agatha Macbeth: Never been there

Wol Euler: so the question in the RP was: do we want to be associated with those people? or do we clean up our RP?

Agatha Macbeth: Tough call

Wol Euler: yeah

Wol Euler: in the end the sim owner got pissed off with it all: people playing for free, but wanting to steer discussion and decision

Wol Euler: and just pulled the plug

Agatha Macbeth: Unsurprisingly

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Agatha Macbeth: Good job I turned up this morning, or you'd have been quite lonely

Wol Euler: :)

Wol Euler: that happens. usually I talk to myself

Wol Euler: or just sit and work on scripts (guilt attack)

Agatha Macbeth: Hee

Wol Euler: yeah, I've been dodging Calvino for a week.

Wol Euler sighs

Agatha Macbeth: Aw

Agatha Macbeth: You saw him last night

Wol Euler waves. Hi Cal, I'll do it htis weekend! promise!

Agatha Macbeth: Maybe he didn't recognise you as a box

Wol Euler: oh yes, he's very decent about not applying pressure verbally :)

Wol Euler: just sits there looking mournful like a beagle refused sausages

Agatha Macbeth: Who could refuse a beagle sausages?

Wol Euler: heartlesss people, aggers, but apparently it happens.

Agatha Macbeth: That's what's wrong with the world

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Wol Euler: too many empty beagles.

Agatha Macbeth thinks of Snoopy on his kennel

Wol Euler: or heartlessness

Agatha Macbeth: Probably the latter

Agatha Macbeth: Don't get many noobs at this time then?

Wol Euler: very seldom

Wol Euler: they are late risers.

Agatha Macbeth grins

--BELL--

Wol Euler: it's true though.

Wol Euler: perhaps they are all at work

Agatha Macbeth: Hm

Agatha Macbeth: Most seem to appear at the 1300s

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Wol Euler: afternoon to evening for most of the world

Wol Euler: so after school/work

Agatha Macbeth: Never met a real Japanese person here tho

Agatha Macbeth: (Unless you count Pema) :p

Wol Euler: :)

Wol Euler: he nearly counts.

Agatha Macbeth: The time difference is horrendous for them

Wol Euler: yep

Wol Euler: perhaps there are enormous hordes of Japanese and Chinese and other Asian groups, wandering the world in their own times?

Agatha Macbeth: Don't seem to see many Scandinavians either, which is odd considering how good their English usually is

Wol Euler: and we just never meet them

Agatha Macbeth: Perhaps they are on Open Sim?

Wol Euler: heh

Wol Euler: that might be.

Agatha Macbeth: What's OOC?

Wol Euler: part of the RP outfit, "out of character"

Agatha Macbeth: Ha

Wol Euler: meaning "I am just passing through en route to where my character should be, don't talk to me"

Wol Euler: I've forgottten how to change the title though :)

Agatha Macbeth: Ok I won't then ;-)

Wol Euler: the reason is that TP is (was) forbidden within the RP, you had to walk or take in-game transport to get around

Wol Euler: so you spent a fair amount of time walking at the start of each session

Agatha Macbeth: God

Wol Euler: and people need to know the difference between a person who is RPing walking past them

Wol Euler: and a person who is trying to pass by to get to *her* RP

Agatha Macbeth: Aha

Wol Euler grins

Wol Euler: the rules around RPing are fascinating

Agatha Macbeth: Feindishly crever

Wol Euler: that interested me far more than hte sci-fi RP itself :)

Wol Euler: the meta-rules and meta-behaviours

Agatha Macbeth: Not surprised

Agatha Macbeth: Meta misbehaviours

Wol Euler: reminded me of when I was a kid, playing with my sister. We had an agreed code to "pause" the game we were playing with our clay figures or whatever

Wol Euler: to discuss what would happen next

Agatha Macbeth: Clay figures? Did you live in a cave or something? :p

Wol Euler: yep

Agatha Macbeth: Troglo-Wol

Wol Euler: figurines that came in boxes of teabags

Wol Euler: pg tips maybe

Wol Euler: my grandmother drank gallons of the stuff, saved the figurines for us

Agatha Macbeth: I only remember the chimps :)

Agatha Macbeth: They were made of CLAY?

Wol Euler: well, I call it clay. Might have been well-baked tealeaf residue

Wol Euler: ceramic

Agatha Macbeth: Not plastic then?

Wol Euler: not then, no :)

Wol Euler is surprisingly old.

Agatha Macbeth: What kind of figures?

Wol Euler: animals

Wol Euler: a cross between the anthropomorphism of Wind in the Willows, and pure biological naturalism

Wol Euler: strange sometimes

Agatha Macbeth: Don't remember anything like that here

Wol Euler: huh

Wol Euler: but but but but ... we didn't use teabags. So where did we get tehm from?

Agatha Macbeth: Musta drunk different tea

Wol Euler: all those years, I assumed they came from Nanny's tea addiction

Agatha Macbeth: Well they evidently came from somewhere

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Wol Euler: a mystery.

Wol Euler: have you seen "the wonderful world of Amelie"?

Agatha Macbeth: Film?

Wol Euler: french film, girl with huge moist eyes

Wol Euler: tries to improve the world, with mixed success

Agatha Macbeth: Don't *think* so

Wol Euler: photo-booths play a significant role

Wol Euler: well worth seeing

Agatha Macbeth: How so?

Wol Euler: rent it for yourself for this evening, unless you have something else planned

Wol Euler: it's relevant to how I feel now about the discussion of these figures

Wol Euler: but I can't tell you without it being a *major* spoiler.

Agatha Macbeth: Oh hell

--BELL--

Wol Euler: heheheheheh

Agatha Macbeth: You know, we've put more chat in this log with the two of us than sometimes you get with half a dozen people

Wol Euler: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0211915/

Wol Euler: and yes, that's true :)

Wol Euler: this is why I think that small retreat groups are better than large

Agatha Macbeth: That looks cute :)

Wol Euler: pema says "no, just different", but I think there is a difference in quality caused by the different amount of participation

Wol Euler: it is, it's a lovely film.

Agatha Macbeth: I would probably agree

Wol Euler: full of goodnesses.

Agatha Macbeth: I'm sure i have heard of it

Wol Euler: I'm certtain that you have. it was a huge out-of-the-blue success, made her career

Wol Euler: but I must go, work is waiting.

Agatha Macbeth: Who is the actress?

Agatha Macbeth: Ok

Agatha Macbeth: Nice seeing you at this time :)

Wol Euler: audrey tatou

Agatha Macbeth: Ah, yes

Wol Euler: wait

Agatha Macbeth: ??

Wol Euler: stand please :)

Wol Euler: hug aga

Wol Euler: bugger

Wol Euler: /hug agatha

Agatha Macbeth: Preferably the former

Wol Euler: happy birthday

Agatha Macbeth: Are you getting shorter?

Agatha Macbeth: ty :)

Wol Euler: not wearing heels :)

Agatha Macbeth: Maybe I'm getting taller then

Wol Euler: but actually maybe this is the short body

Agatha Macbeth: You are usually taller than this

Wol Euler: anyway. have a great day, agatha.

Agatha Macbeth: You too, take care

Agatha Macbeth: Aha

Wol Euler: yeah, apparentyly I buggered up my normal shape :(((((((

Agatha Macbeth slaps you

Wol Euler: yeah

Wol Euler: gotta go.

Agatha Macbeth: C ya

Wol Euler: see you this evening :)

Agatha Macbeth: Yay
