*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

--BELL--

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

--BELL--

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.

--BELL--

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: _/!\_
