    Wol Euler was guardian for this session.


    Wol Euler: good morning yaku
    Yakuzza Lethecus: maybe i need to wear the tag
    Wol Euler: perhaps...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes
    There followed a few minutes of scripting-geekery in IM.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, i was sure it worked witout before
    Yakuzza Lethecus: anyhow, i hope you feel better
    Wol Euler: getting better, thanks
    Wol Euler: that is a really clever av, the thick "outline" always works from any viewing angle.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, i was wondering about that too, riddle's bee avatar has the same feature
    Wol Euler nods.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it's even a freebie :)
    Wol Euler: hehehe
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, i got to go already, have a good relaxing morning!
    Wol Euler laughs.
    Wol Euler: same to you, yaku, enjoy the day
    Wol Euler: good morning, arch
    Archmage Atlantis: howdy. Wol :)
    Wol Euler: how's life?
    Archmage Atlantis: Big topic :)
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Archmage Atlantis: Let me think .....Life, the Universe, and Everything.....yep ok....got the answer now
    Wol Euler shivers with anticip...
    Archmage Atlantis: well, other than being 42......well actually that was almost 2 decades ago......not so bad *g*..........I actuallly have a good friend staying with me this weekend, got of the house yesterday to explore, ate out......not to bad, all in all
    Wol Euler: oh nice!
    Wol Euler: I'm glad to hear that
    Archmage Atlantis: How's your project going
    Archmage Atlantis: ?
    Wol Euler: it's a tricky spot right now
    Wol Euler: the company that was to install the waterworks (a significant part of a swimming pool complex) has gone bankrupt
    Archmage Atlantis: Tell me about it. if you don't mind
    Archmage Atlantis: yike
    Archmage Atlantis: that's not so easy
    Wol Euler: there's a plan afoot to save the contract, some of its competitors have banded together in a short-term company of convenience, a kind of inofficial receivership
    Wol Euler: but this new company doesn't have any staff
    Wol Euler: so it appears that there may be a significant delay in opening
    Wol Euler: not late summer but mid autumn
    Archmage Atlantis: Of course it does.......it has you *g*........I know you have either stepped in, or are thinking about it *chuckle*
    Wol Euler: oh no, I'm an architect. We don't dirty our hands by welding pipes
    Wol Euler: there's nothing I can do personally to aid this situation
    Archmage Atlantis: I see, so no planning or ideas......suggestions or lobbying.....
    Wol Euler: nope
    Wol Euler: our hands are tied
    Archmage Atlantis: Good
    Wol Euler: not least because the members of this consortium were competitors of the bankrupt company, some of them bid on the project and lost out
    Wol Euler: we have to be very careful who we deal with, to avoid accusations of favouritism
    Archmage Atlantis: There is a saying that "When God closes a door, he opens a window".......but I believe that when doors close, it is time to look for another fire exit *g*
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Wol Euler: it'll be OK in the end, the pool will be built and will open to the public, probably in 2011
    Wol Euler: all it means for us is a bit of uncertainty about how much longer we'll be involved
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah
    Wol Euler: and since we have no "next project" that is fine too
    Archmage Atlantis: So you'll have lots of time to take on GoC for more meetings *g*
    Wol Euler: right!
    Archmage Atlantis: That was a joke
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Wol Euler: well ... if I'm here anyway ...
    Archmage Atlantis: We'll both be around here somewhere, I'm guessing
    Wol Euler: very likely :)
    Archmage Atlantis: For me, stubborn forever is my unofficial motto *g*
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Wol Euler: that would sound better in latin
    Wol Euler: well, I never knew that: Google can't translate to/from Latin!
    Wol Euler: how disappointing
    Archmage Atlantis: You know.....I often wonder why I never consider suicide, but it just never feels like a good option........and I like the latin idea
    Wol Euler nods thoughtfully
    Wol Euler: speaking for myself, I'm glad you don't
    Archmage Atlantis: :)
    Wol Euler: but I certainly recognize your right to determine your own lifespan
    Wol Euler: in theory ...
    Archmage Atlantis: The closest translation I have ever heard, and it is probably fake latin, is "Non illigetimi carborundum" or something like that, supposedly "Don't let the bastards get you down" :)
    Wol Euler nods.
    Wol Euler: though that has a different flavour than "stubborn forever"
    Wol Euler: one can be stubborn in the absence of interfering bastards
    Wol Euler: one is inward, the ohter is outward
    Archmage Atlantis: Oh, to me, both are the same....inward.......one is an inward reaction, and the other is an inward perception
    Archmage Atlantis: My company is up and requesting coffee *g*
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    Wol Euler: well, enjoy the day and the company, arch
    Archmage Atlantis: Thanks, Wol.....know I think of you :)......Hope I make it to the GoC meeting laterr.......Bi for now :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Blessings and Namaste
    Wol Euler: bye for now :) and ty
    Wol Euler: _/!\_
