    Bertram Jacobus: ah okay - hello spain ! :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: ok, no Bertram...I am Spanish:))
    Bertram Jacobus: "hasta la vista baby" ? :o)
    Xirana Oximoxi: hehe...this is a phrase that was in a Film, isn¡t it?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, it was
    Bertram Jacobus: exactly - with arnold schwarzenegger ... :o)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)... a lot of people know it...it's a famous sentence
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
     Bertram Jacobus: yeah - schwarzenegger and the movie are responsible for that - a worldwide phenomenon :-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi aph
    Bertram Jacobus: and hello aph :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Yaku, Xirana, Bertram
    Yakuzza Lethecus: nice sarii you are wearing
     Xirana Oximoxi: who is the guardian today?
     Bertram Jacobus lifts his finger ... :o)
    Xirana Oximoxi: ok Bertram:)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bertram-are you the GoC today?
    Bertram Jacobus: yes aph, sadly yes ... *smile* - duties ... *sigh a bit* - we just talked about it before at the place where i was before ... ;-)

    [a person who said he did not want to appear on our wiki was shortly with us and left then – so I had to delete his name and the comments he gave and the responses to that – here are some lines left, which take reference to that / him] :

    Bertram Jacobus: i will have to delete some lines ... ;-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: why?
    Bertram Jacobus: does not happen often ! ...
    Bertram Jacobus: because he said, he does not want to appear on our wiki site
    Aphrodite Macbain: did she say she didn't want to be recorded?
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. he said so
    Xirana Oximoxi: no, I also find it a little strange...specially if nothing 'speciall' is said:)
    Aphrodite Macbain: ah... he...ok
    Bertram Jacobus: people are different
    Bertram Jacobus: i can accept that
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes I agree:)
    Bertram Jacobus: that makes the diversity
    Aphrodite Macbain smiles
    Xirana Oximoxi: and SL gives us the possiblity of keep ourselfs in this world
    Xirana Oximoxi: separetly of rl
    Bertram Jacobus: how do you mean that xirana please ?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Perhaps some see it as a place to hide
    Bertram Jacobus: ah
    Bertram Jacobus: ok
    Aphrodite Macbain: a safe place
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, maybe some people are here to experice things that they don't in rl
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. many people seem to feel a necessity to hide themselves, sadly i find ...


    Bertram Jacobus: oops - sry
    Aphrodite Macbain: don't be sad!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Well, actually to communicate the fullness of ones thought isn´t an easy task either.
    Xirana Oximoxi: it's also a way to learn about oneself maybe
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes- especialy when the thoughts must fit into a small chat box!
    Aphrodite Macbain: in rl i use my hands alot to talk!
    Bertram Jacobus: i call it "fl" (first life) ... ;-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: probably if it wasn´t published he/she would not mind talking here... but anyway it's an option
    Aphrodite Macbain: I wonder how many people read our chat logs
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Or before i was thinking about the tasks i did today, their usefulness, the perceptions of appearing givingupness and which traces such things leave in my memory.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Me too :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I do sometimes when I can not come:)
    Aphrodite Macbain: can you say more about giving upness Yaku?
    Xirana Oximoxi: I like to see what subjects they have been talking about:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Ah today it was something technical, i tried to use stereoix to share my own voice and my systemvoice with someone on skpye to use a program together in voice.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: I installed 3 different applications one of em actually about 5 times in different versiions.
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: I don´t even know if i will ever use that application
    Aphrodite Macbain: did one of them work?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it still doesn´t work
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i spend 4 hours of my sparetime on forums
    Xirana Oximoxi: hehe..than, difficult to use:)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I wouldn't call that giving up. I would call it persistence!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and in the end i can´t show success and don´t think i learned something since all i did was clicking around
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and don´t even know the deeper technological complexity
    Aphrodite Macbain: perhaps success can be defined differently
    Bertram Jacobus: perhaps "success" is even not important ?
    Aphrodite Macbain smiles at Bertram
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes! succes is in another sense...if you relate it to technological matters.. always inconveneces are ready to appear
    Aphrodite Macbain: the notion of success is probably all about ego
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and in the end i get sad not because of what i did but because i ,,lost so much time in playing with something that now seems useless"
    Xirana Oximoxi: our society put a lot of importance in this word 'succes'... and it becomes frustrating sometimes... but for me, the most important is getting in the process of doing things
    Aphrodite Macbain: perhaps you learned something in the process - what is important to you and what, ultimately, isn'r
    Aphrodite Macbain: isnm't
    Aphrodite Macbain: isn't
    Bertram Jacobus: :o)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Bertram Jacobus: <:o)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, that´s a concern for me too, if i have the oven too hot my cake get´s burned and next time i put it on 180 degree´s
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-(0
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes..the important is 'learninng something in the process'
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes
    Xirana Oximoxi: :))
    Bertram Jacobus: (my last smily was / is a little clown with a cap) ! :-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: with technology it´s like, it´s only for this applications sake if it works and if that doesn´t exist it´s like ovens and cake´s never existed
    Aphrodite Macbain: hehe
    Aphrodite Macbain: perhaps the desire for an unburnt cake still exists!
    Xirana Oximoxi: ;D
    Bertram Jacobus: probably, yes, i would agree :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: immaterial things don't desapear so quick
    Aphrodite Macbain begins to think about how much she'd like to eat some chocolate cake
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, at least partially :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s like we are all suddenly the coolest geeks in secondlife building, but the grid get´s shut down
    Bertram Jacobus: may be, they are not immaterial but only subtile ...
    Xirana Oximoxi: I was thinking of 'desire' :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: like rearranging deck chairs on the titanic, we focus on the meaningless details and not on the big picture
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, of course building as syntergetic effects, esthetical judgement and a lot of synergetical effects so i totally agree that we take "something"
    Bertram Jacobus: "we" aph ? ;-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: well, me I guess :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I tend to worry about little things
    Bertram Jacobus: but ... then you notice again : there is "the big picture", obviously ! :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. but sometimes it needs to be pointed out to me
    Aphrodite Macbain: meditating helps
    Bertram Jacobus: same for me i think ...
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes?
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. and some teachings
    Bertram Jacobus: help as well
    Aphrodite Macbain: I have been reading Pema Chodron - dealing with uncertainty
    Bertram Jacobus: to make awareness "bigger"
    Bertram Jacobus: how nice ! satia, ma gf reads many of pema´s booke these days
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes - to exand it out beyond our own small bodies
    Bertram Jacobus: and they help her so much
    Bertram Jacobus: i´m very thankful for that ...
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes, Pema is a lovely teacher and writes so beautifully
    Bertram Jacobus: and happy - and yes ! - although it´s not for me : "too sentimental to me" lol - too much feelings - i hope i can express what i mean (?) ... :o)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I have a CD called don't bite the hook
    Xirana Oximoxi: I'm waiting to finish my semester to read carefully his book about time.. and I find so interesting what he does, sharing opinions during the process of writing iit
    Aphrodite Macbain: helping me not react emotionally to things - anger, fear etc
    Xirana Oximoxi: but now...is Pema Chodron 'unser' Pema??? now I'm not sure
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Pema Chodron is a Buddhist nun
    Bertram Jacobus: noo - piet / pema and pema chödrön are NOT the same :-)
     Aphrodite Macbain: not our Pema
    Xirana Oximoxi: oh! sorry! :)

    Aphrodite Macbain: sorry I must have missed her
    Xirana Oximoxi: I think I've met her at Zen's exhibition..just a moment,
    Aphrodite Macbain: Did Zen have a SL exhibition?
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. she often is quite quiet ... ;-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes Aph..he has a nice Art Gallery
