    Alfred Kelberry: ok, you'll help me with sorting the ecobox output :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Sure, Alfred -- However I might be able to help.
    Bruce Mowbray: What do you need?
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, just you being nearby :)
    Alfred Kelberry: sam! :)
    Bruce Mowbray: I'm GoC of this session, so I will be "nearby" for at least an hour.
    Alfred Kelberry: hehe
    Alfred Kelberry: good :)
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, i'll fiddle with the box a bit...
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, oo000ooo!
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Bruce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Alfred is adjusting his egobox, Samuo.
    oO0Oo Resident: Brian! Nice to see you! :)
    Alfred Kelberry: um, ecobox :)
    Alfred Kelberry: tricky naming scheme, i know :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh -- sorry - His ECObox...."
    Alfred Kelberry: brian! :)
    Brian Roop: hello everyone
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Brian!
    Bruce Mowbray: If you folks don't mind, I'm going to lower the fountain -- makes it easier to see folks.
    oO0Oo Resident: np Bruce
    Brian Roop marvels at the improved group dynamics
    Bruce Mowbray: I hope you have your sounds turned on so you can hear the "drop" bell.
    Bruce Mowbray: because the fountain will not work as a visual clue.
    Bruce Mowbray: How's the overhaul of the ecobox coming along, Alfred?
    Alfred Kelberry: can't say yet :)
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: "eco" is a l-a-r-g-e entity.
    Brian Roop: looks like a bale of silage
    Bruce Mowbray: What's happening with you, Brian?
    Brian Roop: just reoriented my house, which in the end amounted to a rebuilding
    Bruce Mowbray tries to keep his neighbor's cows from wandering in to eat the silage.
    Bruce Mowbray: wow! How about the art gallery of your photos?
    Brian Roop: well it's still there
    Brian Roop: not much traffic
    Brian Roop: but they are expanding the Baker Street shopping sim,
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, done!
    Brian Roop: right across the way
    Bruce Mowbray: How can we help to rouse some traffic to see your excellent photography, Brian?
    Brian Roop: share the LM
    Alfred Kelberry: sorted by memory usage
    Alfred Kelberry: foxy :)
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Fox :)

    oO0Oo Resident: Nice to see you Fox, and have a nice workshop :)
    Brian Roop: thanks, bruce, but we had to move
    Brian Roop: i'll give out the new one
    Bruce Mowbray: Fox brings back fond memories of when Bruce was a tree.
    Bruce Mowbray: Is that a different LM, Brian?
    Brian Roop: yes
    oO0Oo Resident: ty for the updated LM Brian :) Look forward to going and seeing
    Bruce Mowbray: OK -- I will pass it around to replace the other one, then.
    Brian Roop: i bought the land, hope to have some stability there
    Bruce Mowbray: Great!
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, a respectable landowner now! :)
    Alfred Kelberry: congrats
    Bruce Mowbray: Brian's photographs of children are wonderful.
    Brian Roop: ah, yes, have joined the capitalist swine
    Bruce Mowbray: (and also photos of other things...)
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: is it a hobby or you're a pro, brian?
    Bruce Mowbray: Were you able to make it to any of our birthday party events, Brian?
    Brian Roop: strictly hobby
    Brian Roop: though a few have been published
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, nice
    Brian Roop: mostly in tourist materials
    Bruce Mowbray listens.
    Alfred Kelberry: what do you shot with?
    Brian Roop: currently a nikon d90
    Alfred Kelberry: nikonista :)
    Brian Roop: my previous camera gave up the ghost
    Alfred Kelberry: that's a nice camera
    Brian Roop: yes versatile with the learning curve that goes with that
    Alfred Kelberry: using primes?
    Brian Roop: ??
    Alfred Kelberry: lenses
    Alfred Kelberry: or zoom
    Brian Roop: zoom
    oO0Oo Resident: Nice to see you all. Boxy, Bruce, and I look forward to seeing your photos Brian. Bye for now :)
    Brian Roop: bye
    Alfred Kelberry: sam :)
    Bruce Mowbray: bye, Sam!
    Alfred Kelberry: it's not too fair having 2 events at the same time
    Brian Roop: well not a lot of action here today
    Alfred Kelberry: dream and pab
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Brian Roop: shall we go over there and picket?
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Brian Roop: looks like 5 or 6 there
    Bruce Mowbray: well, theoretically, it could make for a more "intense" discussion here -- fewer folks.
    Bruce Mowbray: I counted 7 of them earlier. . . (checking again).
    Alfred Kelberry: shall we go, or bruce you're obliged to stay?
    Bruce Mowbray: now there are nine over there.
    Brian Roop: anyone up for intensity?
    Brian Roop: Not me
    Bruce Mowbray: I have to stay -- but - PLEASE, feel free to go there --
    Bruce Mowbray: I wish I could go there myself! 
    Brian Roop: well you don't have to stay if no one's here
    Brian Roop: if they're not here by 20 after that's hardly your problem
    Alfred Kelberry: yes
    Bruce Mowbray: Actually, I should stay for at least half an hour - even if no one else comes.
    Bruce Mowbray: np.
    Bruce Mowbray: I enjoy the quiet time.
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, let's wait then :)
    Brian Roop: college profs got 10 minutes
    Bruce Mowbray: With the ecobox, Al, what do the numbers mean?
    Brian Roop: ah the prim meter
    Alfred Kelberry: scripts
    Bruce Mowbray: OK -- so I am using 18 prims, then?
    Brian Roop: oh yeah, scripts
    Brian Roop: hi susan
    iwandertoo Resident: waves to all
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Susan!
    Alfred Kelberry: there's an explanatory header, rather short though :)
    Alfred Kelberry: susan :)
    Alfred Kelberry: not prims; scripts, bruce
    Brian Roop: yes
    Bruce Mowbray: I am using 18 scripts?
    Alfred Kelberry: 18 total, 18 running and they consume 1 mb of ram
    Alfred Kelberry: yes
    Bruce Mowbray: Mmmm. . . that could account for lag. . .?
    Alfred Kelberry: not really :)
    Brian Roop: ever been to the Blarney Stone with 40 avis there?
    Alfred Kelberry: i've seen avs with 50 megs and over 500 scripts :)
    Brian Roop: Now that is lag!
    Brian Roop: 500 scripts, what in the world are they doing?
    Bruce Mowbray: nope, never have had much use for Blarney Stone -- tend to do the blarney quite well without it!
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, and if you have 5 of them with 50 megs on them - it may be bad :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Arch!
    Alfred Kelberry: brian, i didn't ask :)
    Alfred Kelberry: archy :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Hey everyone :)
    Brian Roop: yeah life has to be bad boring for me to go there
    Bruce Mowbray: So, Alfred, what is the purpose of your ecobox if not to inform folks about scripts/lagging?
    Archmage Atlantis: Couldn't decide where to sit .....and keep the balance
    Brian Roop: run the meter again
    Alfred Kelberry: excuse me, one more adjustment to my other build...
    Bruce Mowbray: So, with Blub swimming -- the reading is higher...
    Alfred Kelberry: bruce, it just outputs some numbers, the rest is optional :)
    Brian Roop: ah i found the scripts
    Brian Roop: a stand/walk hud
    Alfred Kelberry: brian, 2! pretty nice
    Brian Roop: oh anyone can run it
    Bruce Mowbray: Wow -- only TWO!
    Brian Roop: i for the hair and 1 for the meter i suspect
    Brian Roop: wait til i reattach the crutches, it will shoot up then
    Bruce Mowbray: RL dog barking -- afk -- brb
    Brian Roop: meanwhile, we take up the simple life
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff :)
    Brian Roop: ah the dog speaks woof not arf
    Brian Roop: or is it bilingual?
    Bruce Mowbray: back. . .
    Archmage Atlantis: 'simple' is that which is not complex to ourselves
    Bruce Mowbray: My dog still lives in the delusion that there are "boundaries" in his world -- "territorial imperative" stuff.
    Brian Roop: boxy you ok?
    Bruce Mowbray: trampoline dog.

    4-5-2011 4-32-52 PM.jpg

    Brian Roop: k
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, just testing the trampoline sound
    Brian Roop: heh
    Bruce Mowbray: boing boing boing.
    Bruce Mowbray: how are things in your world today, Arch -- and Susan?
    Alfred Kelberry: well, 30 min is gone
    iwandertoo Resident: quiet
    iwandertoo Resident: you?
    Bruce Mowbray: amazingly quiet, also -- and grateful for that.
    Alfred Kelberry: how's your dog, bruce?
    Alfred Kelberry: just felt like barking? :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Bear is just fine, Alfred - and thanks for asking.
    Bruce Mowbray: He was "defending" the "territory" ----
    Bruce Mowbray: neighbor dogs wandering in.
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, right :)
    Bruce Mowbray: but they don't pay him any mind.
    Bruce Mowbray: It's when the neighbor cows wander in to graze on the silage ecobox, THEN we have troubles.
    Brian Roop: how many scripts in a sl cow?
    Bruce Mowbray ponders "lindenograms."
    Bruce Mowbray: No problem with the cows' scripts, Brian. My dog will chase them away.
    Brian Roop: how many scripts in an sl dog?
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Bruce Mowbray: 18 for this particular dog.
    Brian Roop: not bad
    Alfred Kelberry: i should use some constant to get proper weight results
    Archmage Atlantis: depends on how many the dogs god of script-ure put in
    Bruce Mowbray dies from laughing....
    Brian Roop: drowns in the pond
    Brian Roop: bruce does
    Bruce Mowbray: Instant self-CPR. . . (with a little help from Blub, who understands water better than Bruce).
    Bruce Mowbray: [reads lindengrams] -- Oh dear -- need to go on diet at once!
    Brian Roop: how do we know that thing's not just making it up?
    Brian Roop: just putting out random numbers
    Bruce Mowbray: How do we know that ANY of us is not just making it up?
    Bruce Mowbray: For one, I'm quite suspicious that Arch is making up all of it - and all of us.
    Bruce Mowbray also thinks that Blub might be making this all up.
    Bruce Mowbray ponders solipsism.

    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Bruce Mowbray wonders if every single entity in the universe might be solipsistic.
    Brian Roop: Bruce ponders solipsism all by himself
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye, Susan!
    Bruce Mowbray wonders if he's getting too intense.
    Brian Roop views with alarm the smoke pouring out of Bruce's ears
    Archmage Atlantis: Taint my issue that Gabriella asked me to park her wings.......just doing a favor for a gal pal

    4-5-2011 4-45-19 PM.jpg

    Bruce Mowbray: Oh dear. I hate it when that happens.
    Brian Roop calls the fire company
    Bruce Mowbray: sry to singe your wings, Arch.
    Archmage Atlantis: Feathers grow back, np
    Brian Roop croons, It was immolation, I know...
    Archmage Atlantis: Was that Salvedore Dali that just walked by?
    Brian Roop: then you've seen a ghost
    Archmage Atlantis: NP, I am a ghost
    Bruce Mowbray: were his clocks melting?
    Brian Roop: oh
    Bruce Mowbray: Koya is dreaming up the existence of Arch. . . (so some might say).
    Bruce Mowbray: and Blub dreaming up the existence of Bruce, of course.
    Archmage Atlantis: Koya is closer to this earth than I; those who sustain her closer yet........and the plants, well......they speak when they choose
    Bruce Mowbray: indeed, Arch. "Closer to this earth" -- a wonderful place to be.
    Brian Roop: closer but not in it please
    Archmage Atlantis: One of the first sci fi novels I read as a teen had intelligent broccoli as main character
    Bruce Mowbray: Wow! I love that!
    Brian Roop: no wonder george bush disliked broccoli
    Archmage Atlantis: Been teetering on the edge a bit
    Bruce Mowbray has secretly always wanted to be a plant.
    Brian Roop: is one broccoli a brocculus?
    Archmage Atlantis: I think it is one of those latin things, where i is both singular and plural
    Brian Roop: you is?
    Brian Roop: oh bruce is back to the tree thing
    Brian Roop: oh my
    Archmage Atlantis: I is, therefore I think.....with apologies to DesCartes
    Archmage Atlantis: Also know as Desi......after little Ricky was born
    Brian Roop: Lucy i gotta splain you sompn
    Archmage Atlantis: Bows

    Bruce suddenly lost his internet connection - - -

    Brian Roop: oops there goes the guardian
    Archmage Atlantis: Bruce got devoured by a hungry creature.......or de-evolved.... or (Hum).....and then, and then,.....along comes ??
    Brian Roop: uh oh
    Archmage Atlantis: Good session.....our madness makes us strong....our unpredictability makes us difficult to absorb......and our love makes us whole
