    Aphrodite Macbain: It's called torta salata in Italian
    Aphrodite Macbain: savoury pie I guess
    Aphrodite Macbain: I wonder if they have a pumpkin with 4 white horses
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe - did you search it already in the search ? ;-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: what? the pie? no I learned to make it in Italy!
    Bleu Oleander: ha!
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hope it works!

    Aphrodite Macbain: oh. ha ha. no
    Aphrodite Macbain: I was thinking about cinderella
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe - may be you could find it there ... yes ...
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm sure. It needs a footman to drive it as well
    Aphrodite Macbain: I would love to make a litle pool in my plot. Where do you think I could find animated water like this?
    Bleu Oleander: actually you have that texture in your library in your inventory
    Aphrodite Macbain: Lots of sims I suppose
    Aphrodite Macbain: does it actually move?
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: Oh. Would it be under textures/water?
    Bleu Oleander: i'm looking ....
    Aphrodite Macbain: I have Evian water...
    Bleu Oleander: under textures
    Aphrodite Macbain: "ripple layer?"
    Aphrodite Macbain: I used that for my costume but it doesn't move
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh hold on- there are waterfalls in my Library
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bertram, what are you going to turn into once you drop who you are?
    Bertram Jacobus: i got an offer in the group - somebody could build that - the pumpkin with the horses - but would need some costs ... - i denied ... but see : all possible ! :-)(@aph)

    Bleu Oleander: anything good at mica?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the standard model in particle physics was todays' subject
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i didn't see you at the roadside philosophers today aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: No, I was cooking quiche
    Bertram Jacobus: and at myrabelle edenbaums main store there exists already such a thing, but made from glass and only one horse lol :o)

    Bleu Oleander: oh how is he?
    Liza Deischer: hi everyone :)
    Bleu Oleander: hi Liza
    Yakuzza Lethecus: he´s in Canada now
    Aphrodite Macbain: what is particle physics? the way tiny particles move? laws unto themselves?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i don´t know him really, i was at science at play a couple of times when he, storm, thinkerer and alike were doing that
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so i can say i like his appearance
    Yakuzza Lethecus: his art of acting and presenting
    Aphrodite Macbain smiles at Yaku
    Aphrodite Macbain: Liza- I love your new place
    Aphrodite Macbain: The one with all the images of the pavilion and of storm.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Did you just make that recently?

    Liza Deischer: thanks
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey liza
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Liza Deischer: sl is playing tricks on me, you are all very vague
    Liza Deischer: I need to relog
    Bertram Jacobus: okay liza - much luck !
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb liza
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm watching big yellow leaves fall from my tulip tree outside my window. Sad but beautiful
    Aphrodite Macbain: wb Liza
    Liza Deischer: thanks
    Bleu Oleander: i love tulip trees
    Bleu Oleander: beautiful
    Aphrodite Macbain: They were such a pleasant surprise during my first summer in my place.
    Liza Deischer: well, you're no blurry anymore, now you are all grey :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I suppose that's better!
    Aphrodite Macbain: Do you have a new viewer?
    Liza Deischer: no
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hmm, it tells me phoenix
    Yakuzza Lethecus: for you liz, have you been with phoenix before ?
    Liza Deischer: yes
    Liza Deischer: I guess it is the lag
    Aphrodite Macbain: where do you find that info out Yaku?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s just next to her name :)
    Liza Deischer: if you have Phoenix yourself, it shows above your head
    Yakuzza Lethecus: don´t you remember that from emerald aph ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: phoenix is in principle the same viewer with a different name
    Aphrodite Macbain: Not on my viewer. It just says "online"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, i mean when you tried emerald some time ago
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. but I don't see how someone else can tell
    Liza Deischer: do you use Phoenix Aph?
    Bleu Oleander: why do you all like that viewer better than sl version 1?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, bert, liz and me are on phoenix
    Aphrodite Macbain: It just says "member" above Liza's name
    Liza Deischer: it has more uselfull adds
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but only bleu is IN PHOENIX
    Aphrodite Macbain: Ah maybe you have to be in the club!
    Liza Deischer: :)
    Bleu Oleander: i'm using sl V!
    Liza Deischer: like teleporting to someone in the neigbourhood
    Bleu Oleander: ha ha Yaku
    Liza Deischer: it is more stable than viewer 1
    Aphrodite Macbain: SL V?
    Bleu Oleander: V1
    Liza Deischer: and you can see which viewers others use
    Liza Deischer: since I don't have the tags on I can't see it
    Liza Deischer: but if you don't use the phoenix viewer, you can't see it aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: K
    Aphrodite Macbain: How is the building going Liza
    Liza Deischer: well, it is not quite what I hoped for
    Aphrodite Macbain: I saw a few pieces of 4x8 foot plywood
    Aphrodite Macbain: were you going to assemble them into a hollow structure?
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm curious how 3D buildings are built
    Liza Deischer: so I think I'm going to tear it down and make something different
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh. can't you save (take) what you have already made and re-work it?
    Liza Deischer: eh well, a floor, a few walls, and something on top, that is basically all
    Liza Deischer: sure, but if something doesn't work out.......
    Aphrodite Macbain: You can do a lot with a hollow cube!
    Bleu Oleander: where is your building?
    Liza Deischer: but I stay with the window for a while
    Liza Deischer: yes, but that is only 10 x10 x10
    Liza Deischer: and that is not big
    Aphrodite Macbain: Big enough to fit 4 people in

    Liza Deischer: so mostly you make walls of them and put them together
    Liza Deischer: the hard part is the windows
    Aphrodite Macbain: I would imagine
    Liza Deischer: you need to make space for it, and you can do that in different ways
    Aphrodite Macbain: Don't you just apply it to a surface?
    Liza Deischer: sometimes that is possible, it depends all on the texture you use, or the window you use
    Aphrodite Macbain: I guess I'll have to try putting a window in my teepe to see what happens!
    Liza Deischer: but it is not like you can put any texture on it to make it look like a window
    Liza Deischer: well I can show you sometime
    Aphrodite Macbain: OK. It sounds like you would need a lot of manual dexterity to design it
    Liza Deischer: well if you get the hang of it and have the right materials, it is not that complicated
    Aphrodite Macbain: I am always impressed by the totally immersive sites where everything works in all dimensions
    Aphrodite Macbain: Like the Siena Cathedra- the Duomo- extraordinary
    Aphrodite Macbain: My cat thinks the yellow leaves are birds and keeps jumping at the indow
    Liza Deischer: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: His form of 2nd Life
    Liza Deischer: well you can make it is complicated as you want, and some are very good at that
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Liza Deischer: but I guess it starts with basic principles
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes, and familiarity with the tools
    Liza Deischer: right
    Bleu Oleander: bye for now everyone :)
    Bertram Jacobus: bye bleu
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye! Bleu Good to see you
    Liza Deischer: and textures, those are very important, because those give the real look
    Liza Deischer: bye Bleu
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. I'm gradually realizing how important the textures are
    Liza Deischer: and texture making is a trade of its own
    Aphrodite Macbain: I had fun downloading an image I took in Italy and incorporating it into my plot - giving it a real depth
    Liza Deischer: so I try to find the right textures, there are a lot out there to buy
    Liza Deischer: sorry, need to go, somebody put me at work :)
    Liza Deischer: bye all
    Aphrodite Macbain: It's 2PM anyway. I must go as well
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye! Liza
    Aphrodite Macbain: Are you going bert? How are you getting home? By pumpkin?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yaku - are you still with us?
    Aphrodite Macbain: No, I guess not. Here in body but not in spirit!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sometimes
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don´t always watch the screen :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yaku - you must try a ride on the pumpkin
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, i did already :)
