    Agatha Macbeth pats Boxy's head
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah - the rocket lady?
    Alfred Kelberry: um...
    Alfred Kelberry: the rocket lady would be "rocket sellers"
    Agatha Macbeth: Something to do with MICA isn't she?
    Alfred Kelberry: gah, all these oddly looking name - i have to quote them
    Alfred Kelberry: nasa colab
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm, right
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, I was close
    Agatha Macbeth: I think I've seen her at Science Friday
    Alfred Kelberry: she wanted to know of a program to teach her kid japanese
    Alfred Kelberry: where's woly?
    Agatha Macbeth: Wouldn't a Japanese person be better? ;p
    Agatha Macbeth: She's online
    Agatha Macbeth: probably at Mugunghwa changing clothes
    Alfred Kelberry: she's deceivingly secretive today
    Agatha Macbeth: Wol I mean...not Be Ewing
    Alfred Kelberry: *nods*
    Agatha Macbeth: Wol's always decisively secretive
    Alfred Kelberry: um...
    Alfred Kelberry: at times
    Agatha Macbeth: She used to work for the CIA
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Alfred Kelberry: i don't think so
    Alfred Kelberry: very unlikely
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, but you don't *know* that [smiles]
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe I work for MI5
    Alfred Kelberry: she's not a government type
    Agatha Macbeth: Neither are they a lot of the time!
    Agatha Macbeth: Here comes Ms Qt :p
    Alfred Kelberry: woly has a problem. can't tp.
    Alfred Kelberry: ms?
    Agatha Macbeth: Sera Qt
    Qt Core: :-) hi all
    Alfred Kelberry: are you being playful, aga? :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Me? Never!
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    Alfred Kelberry: hi, qt
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll try to TP her
    Alfred Kelberry: may i ask, qt... i'm sure i've asked you before
    Alfred Kelberry: but i forgot
    Agatha Macbeth: Hiya Aph
    Qt Core: ask ask
    Qt Core: hi Aphro
    Wol Euler: hello all
    Alfred Kelberry: how did you pick your name?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Cloud Wol :)
    Alfred Kelberry: woly! :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hello!
    Alfred Kelberry: cloudy girl :)
    Alfred Kelberry: she looks cuddly as a cloud
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Hey there cloudy girl...'
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Qt Core: the initials of Questor Thews a charachter in the fantasy saga of Landover, same author of the more famous Shannara one
    Aphrodite Macbain: nice little dance Boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: *cuddles in the cloud*
    Qt Core: Questor
    Qt Core: Thews
    Alfred Kelberry: questor?
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, aph :)
    Alfred Kelberry: hi!
    Wol Euler: his name
    Agatha Macbeth: Was he in Star Trek?
    Qt Core: yes, that's the name
    Alfred Kelberry: aha
    Alfred Kelberry: why t then?
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, right
    Wol Euler: glad to see you're wide awake, boxy :)
    Alfred Kelberry: so, no relation to qt library?
    Alfred Kelberry: or being "cute"
    Agatha Macbeth: I thought it was something to do with Linux for some reason
    Wol Euler: hello zon
    Alfred Kelberry: zon!
    Zon Kwan: heyaa
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Zon
    Alfred Kelberry: smarty aga
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow, lady in red (Aphrodite)
    Qt Core: it has NOTHING to do with cute :-)
    Alfred Kelberry: haha
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, ok
    Alfred Kelberry: so, the library then
    Wol Euler: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: But you *are* cute Qt :p
    Qt Core: and there is a quite famous graphic library called Qt
    Alfred Kelberry: there you have it
    Qt Core: used mostly but not only in Linux
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Shows what I know
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Wol Euler wonders whether "qt" stands for QuickTime
    Alfred Kelberry: nooo!
    Alfred Kelberry: no quicktime, please
    Agatha Macbeth: What's wrong with it?
    Alfred Kelberry: woly is still a cloud :/
    Aphrodite Macbain: there is a british expression that calls anything that is done unofficially"on the QT" means unofficially
    Alfred Kelberry: can't see her sexy dress
    Alfred Kelberry: *pouts*
    Qt Core: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_K...#Questor_Thews
    Wol Euler has been rebaking continually since getting here
    Agatha Macbeth: Thought it was 'on the quiet' Aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: whose mine. It's just an old sari I threw on
    Agatha Macbeth: I need to get some saris
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes, that got shortened to QT
    Alfred Kelberry: does anyone see woly?
    Agatha Macbeth: I see a cloud
    Wol Euler pouts.
    Agatha Macbeth: Cumulo Nimbus I believe
    Aphrodite Macbain: notawolytobeseen
    Alfred Kelberry: aga, just, please, keep your boots on :)
    Wol Euler: okay, lemme relog
    Agatha Macbeth: ???
    Qt Core: cloudy woly
    Aphrodite Macbain: nice boots Aggers
    Alfred Kelberry: you said you'd like some sari dresses
    Agatha Macbeth: Tell you what, why not relog?
    Agatha Macbeth: ...oh she's gone
    Agatha Macbeth: Boots don't go too well with saris Alf :p
    Agatha Macbeth: Sandals yes
    Alfred Kelberry: it's subjective
    Agatha Macbeth: Ok, you wear 'em then
    Alfred Kelberry: i find them quite fitting
    Agatha Macbeth: Or get Mila to
    Alfred Kelberry: on my paws?!
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, mila would like them indeed
    Agatha Macbeth pokes Alf in the ear
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i should bring her in :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, please do
    Alfred Kelberry: you missed her?
    Agatha Macbeth: I only met her once
    Agatha Macbeth: (Aha)
    Alfred Kelberry: *thinks: a cloud...*
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza :)
    Agatha Macbeth: hello Liz :))
    Qt Core: Hi Eliza
    Alfred Kelberry: sorry, woly... still a cloud
    Wol Euler: hello eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Everyone :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: eliza! gtrsy
    Wol Euler: well, I've done all I can and will do tonight. sorry.
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes, Wol is cloudy....
    Aphrodite Macbain: gtsy
    Agatha Macbeth: At least I can see you now
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Wol Euler: zoom in on me. that sometimes helps
    Alfred Kelberry: one cuddly cloud she is
    Agatha Macbeth: ...even if you are grey
    Agatha Macbeth: (mostly)
    Aphrodite Macbain: That's so funny
    Aphrodite Macbain: That's so funny
    Agatha Macbeth: Twice
    Alfred Kelberry: nice giggle, aph :)
    Agatha Macbeth: *GIGGLES* :)Agatha MacBeth 11 May 2011
    Aphrodite Macbain: That's so funny
    Alfred Kelberry: aga, that is not your voice :)
    Agatha Macbeth: No, it's aph :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: testing my laughs
    Aphrodite Macbain dies from laughing....
    Agatha Macbeth: The laugh of Aph
    Alfred Kelberry: bruce!
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: nope
    Aphrodite Macbain: me
    Agatha Macbeth: Bruce? Where?
    Aphrodite Macbain: we're both wearing saris Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: always wondered what 'nibble' was in the gestures...
    Alfred Kelberry: how about we make an in-voice 9 sec laugh? :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, why not?
    Alfred Kelberry: aga, the last laugh aph did - just like bruce
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: I see
    Alfred Kelberry: collective giggle - drop sadness
    Aphrodite Macbain: lovely sari Eliza
    Agatha Macbeth hears it crash
    Eliza Madrigal: if you don't have any do you have to find some to participate? :)
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Thank you APh :)
    Eliza Madrigal: we all look lovely today, and I trust Wol does too :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hah
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, i think participating you'd help to drop it for someone else :)
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Aphrodite Macbain: would you like a laugh too Eliza?
    Agatha Macbeth: She always looks lovely
    Wol Euler: ty
    Eliza Madrigal: of course, I love to laugh
    Agatha Macbeth: Ooo, hello...
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe we need the mary poppins laugh that makes us float
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, thanks Ph
    Eliza Madrigal: *Aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: not that I want you to die...
    Eliza Madrigal dies from laughing....
    Agatha Macbeth: Erk
    Eliza Madrigal: hah
    Aphrodite Macbain: lol
    Eliza Madrigal: Mrawwwww...
    Aphrodite Macbain: better to stand first
    Alfred Kelberry: do we need a joke or we can just start laughing? :)
    Aphrodite Macbain dies from laughing....
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eliza Madrigal dies from laughing....
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm
    Agatha Macbeth: Evidently it's infectious
    Eliza Madrigal dies from laughing....
    Aphrodite Macbain: heheheh
    Eliza Madrigal: what a party
    Alfred Kelberry: right in the pool!
    Agatha Macbeth: Or even an epidemic
    Agatha Macbeth: Toto... I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore...
    Aphrodite Macbain: omg
    Wol Euler: as long as we hold the line ...
    Aphrodite Macbain: where are we anyway?
    Agatha Macbeth: Bieup?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Tied up in Biewup
    Alfred Kelberry: well, no in-voice participants today...
    Agatha Macbeth: ***Strong Am I With The Force***
    Aphrodite Macbain: *Bieup
    Eliza Madrigal dies from laughing....
    Agatha Macbeth: YABBA DABBA DOOOOO!!!
    Aphrodite Macbain: and slips into the pool
    Eliza Madrigal: haha
    Aphrodite Macbain: Do it NOW...or taste my SQUIRRELY WRATH!
    Agatha Macbeth: Is it Friday already?
    Wol Euler: sure feels that way
    Wol Euler has a day off tomorrow!
    Aphrodite Macbain: yayy
    Agatha Macbeth: Yay
    Eliza Madrigal: yay, congratulations!
    Aphrodite Macbain: what will Wol do?
    Wol Euler: hard to say
    Wol Euler: some reading, some cleaning and laundry, a few hours of WoW
    Alfred Kelberry: where did you get all these oddly sounding files, aga?
    Agatha Macbeth: Beats me!
    Alfred Kelberry: wow, woly
    Aphrodite Macbain: WoW?
    Alfred Kelberry: you play wow?
    Wol Euler: World of Warcraft
    Wol Euler: I do :)
    Alfred Kelberry: amazing
    Wol Euler: why?
    Alfred Kelberry: a big surprise for me
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: verrrry interesting
    Wol Euler: oh, you'd be surprised who plays MMORPGs ...
    Alfred Kelberry: naughty woly :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Lady Gaga?
    Wol Euler: yep
    Wol Euler: on her days off from drunken debauchery
    Qt Core: and who doesn't ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: She has days off?
    Alfred Kelberry: i only play sl :)
    Wol Euler: in her contract ...
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    Aphrodite Macbain: well I must go and DO things, accomplish something in my day, shop, buy a present for my sister
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Aph, nice to see you
    Qt Core: bye Aphro
    Aphrodite Macbain: write my will...
    Wol Euler: go forth and be useful, aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, don't work too hard :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye!
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye for now Aph
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: quite a 'to do' list
    Agatha Macbeth: Question is how much will actually get done?
    Wol Euler nods.
    Eliza Madrigal: or which things
    Wol Euler: hello ara
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Arabella! ltns!
    Qt Core: Hi Ara
    Alfred Kelberry: i now call it a tada list after the 37 signals app
    arabella Ella: Hiya!
    Alfred Kelberry: ara!
    Agatha Macbeth: Itns?
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, please tell more Aph
    Eliza Madrigal: Alf
    Eliza Madrigal: :D
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Ara babes :)
    Eliza Madrigal: long time no see
    Wol Euler: lose the nasty sausage 


    Alfred Kelberry: *thinks eliza sneaked this one from one of her teens* :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Shhhhhh
    Eliza Madrigal: It took me forever to figure out 'gtsy' in the logs, but I think I got 'ltns' here, too :)
    Alfred Kelberry: um
    Agatha Macbeth: Hmmm
    Alfred Kelberry: confusing
    Eliza Madrigal: as well as Wol's o.O and ymmv
    Wol Euler: I think Bleu introduced them ...
    Eliza Madrigal: IOW
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh I know those
    Alfred Kelberry: i like woly's "fold well" wishes
    Eliza Madrigal: ^.^
    Wol Euler: hehehehe
    Wol Euler: specially for you, boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, please :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) that's a new one
    Wol Euler: I'll tuck your Tab A into Slot B
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah
    Agatha Macbeth: That'll bring a smile to his face
    Alfred Kelberry: aww
    Wol Euler grins.
    Eliza Madrigal: So Ara how have you been?
    arabella Ella: fine thanks Eliza
    arabella Ella: been busy ... work mainly
    arabella Ella: yourself?
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, nods
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, just peachy thanks
    Alfred Kelberry: *takes out the ecobox* let's see who's misbehaving today...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: usual suspects
    Agatha Macbeth holds up her hand
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eliza Madrigal didn't need an ecobox to tell her that
    Eliza Madrigal: ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: A Boxybox
    Alfred Kelberry: if you've read the recent pab post, storm has started a major investigation in order to reduce lag in the sim
    Eliza Madrigal: do you make these for RL homes, Boxy? to tell people perhaps how much energy they're consuming?
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza :)
    Agatha Macbeth: He can start by getting rid of all these trees
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hahahaha
    Eliza Madrigal: and birds?
    Wol Euler: no scripts in them, wouldn't help
    Agatha Macbeth: Naaaaw!
    Wol Euler: the birds, yes, they are scripted
    Agatha Macbeth: Not the birds
    Eliza Madrigal: (thanks Storm)
    Eliza Madrigal: my water contraption may have to go
    Eliza Madrigal: that's okay, its loud anyway

    A loud silence ensues...
    Agatha Macbeth: Have I crashed?
    Wol Euler: nope
    Agatha Macbeth: ah
    arabella Ella: no
    Agatha Macbeth: It's gone quiet
    Wol Euler: Old Bill just walked in ...
    Alfred Kelberry: woly 7 script cloud :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Evenin' all
    arabella Ella: Evenin Aggers!
    Wol Euler flexes her knees and touches a knuckle to her helmet
    Agatha Macbeth hears a siren
    Agatha Macbeth: What's goin' on 'ere then?
    Alfred Kelberry: um...
    arabella Ella: in RL or SL Ags?
    Alfred Kelberry: this could be a nice play
    Agatha Macbeth: Either!
    Agatha Macbeth: Much ado about nothing?
    Alfred Kelberry: theatric being
    arabella Ella: well we are all sitting comfortably in SL and RL
    arabella Ella: relaxed
    Agatha Macbeth: So I'll begin...
    arabella Ella: simply being
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: onigokko
    Alfred Kelberry: please go on, aga
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    arabella Ella: LOL
    arabella Ella: naughty aggers!
    Agatha Macbeth: That's me
    arabella Ella: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    Agatha Macbeth: stop
    arabella Ella: nice bit of exercise for the day
    Agatha Macbeth: Anyway, about sitting quietly?
    Alfred Kelberry: i think we should also do that in rl
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, you haven't been boxy?
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: no... sorry :/
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, well now you can be like the rest of us, hehe
    arabella Ella giggles breathlessly
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Is he house-trained is the question
    arabella Ella: not so sure about 'house' but he sure is trained
    Agatha Macbeth: That alright then
    Alfred Kelberry: you mean like a good mannered puppy?
    Agatha Macbeth: Or something
    arabella Ella: full of charm of course
    Alfred Kelberry: i think so
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep
    Alfred Kelberry: it's innate
    Agatha Macbeth: IN8
    arabella Ella smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Wol Euler: yeah, innit.
    arabella Ella: gr8
    Alfred Kelberry: special robo-canine
    Eliza Madrigal: INGR8
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Agatha Macbeth: gtsy
    arabella Ella: 10kx
    Agatha Macbeth: Ten cakes?
    Alfred Kelberry: defiitions please
    arabella Ella: LMAO
    Alfred Kelberry: *goes to meet bleu*
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Bleu Oleander: hi boxy
    Agatha Macbeth looks for Bleu
    Wol Euler: he really is a puppy
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Alfred Kelberry: hi :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Hi Bleu
    Agatha Macbeth: Bonjour Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: nice to be greeted
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Bleu Oleander: hi everyone :)
    Eliza Madrigal: gtsy
    Wol Euler: hello bleu
    Agatha Macbeth: Boxy needs a new tag: PaB Greeter
    arabella Ella: hiya bleu!
    Qt Core: Hi Bleu
    Alfred Kelberry: um...
    Alfred Kelberry: that i'd have to only do the greeting, aga
    Alfred Kelberry: it's tiresome
    Eliza Madrigal: Nice to see you all for a while... feeling a little woozy and think to lay down a bit :) Bye for now... hugs
    Agatha Macbeth: It didn't seem tiresome in Bleu's case :))
    Alfred Kelberry: rest well, eliza
    Bleu Oleander: feel better .... bye Eliza
    arabella Ella: bye eliza
    Wol Euler: bye eliza, take care
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, bye Liz
    Agatha Macbeth: Hope she's alright
    Bleu Oleander: uh oh
    Alfred Kelberry: bleu, you may like to know that storm has started an investigation into the scripts influence on the sim lag
    Bleu Oleander: I saw that boxy
    Bleu Oleander: no scripts on my plot
    Alfred Kelberry: i should say that it is substantial
    arabella Ella: does this apply to the whole sim?
    Wol Euler: scripts take up 20/23rds of the sim's processing capability
    Alfred Kelberry: yes
    Bleu Oleander: whole sim, right?
    arabella Ella: wow amazing
    Wol Euler: ctrl-shift-1 and scroll down to the last section "Time (ms)"
    Agatha Macbeth: That's a nice round number
    arabella Ella: why is Wol a cloud tonight?
    Wol Euler: same reason. It's called "lag"
    Agatha Macbeth: She isn't, just grey :)
    arabella Ella: owwww
    Wol Euler rebakes for the 14th time
    Bleu Oleander: so that's the % of processor time?
    arabella Ella: it actually says rezzing on your tag Wol
    Agatha Macbeth: 'May contain lag'
    Wol Euler: in case you hadn't noticed the cloud ...
    arabella Ella smiles
    Wol Euler: that's what Linden Lab spends its time on, instaed of solving problems
    Alfred Kelberry: woly, actually, after the scene is loaded in memory, it takes almost 100% of each frame computation time
    Wol Euler: yep, "agent time" is 0.5/23rds of the calculation effort
    Wol Euler: roughly 2%
    Wol Euler loves how geekish statistics stop conversation :)
    Agatha Macbeth: That's cos no-one understands them
    Qt Core: could spend hours looking at the numbers and blinking lights ;-)
    Alfred Kelberry: since we're not estate owners, we can't manage the whole sim. storm will have to do testing on each plot.
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, rds - i see now, woly :)
    arabella Ella: Boxy you cant understand our acronyms and we cant understand your geek talk ... i cant!
    Alfred Kelberry: sorry, ara
    arabella Ella smiles at boxy ... no problem alfie it is still entertaining!
    Alfred Kelberry: the bottom line is the scripts take a lot of resources on the sim
    arabella Ella: and i would forgive you anything
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: *feels how geekiness settles down slowly like dust in a room*
    Bleu Oleander: http://analutetia.com/2009/06/22/anatomy-of-lag/
    Bleu Oleander: is this blog not right then?
    Wol Euler: yes but :)
    Bleu Oleander: but?
    Wol Euler: it's all interrrelated
    Wol Euler: dozens of avs slow down a sim becaose of their interractions
    Wol Euler: thousands of scripts slow down a sim by chewing up its resources
    Wol Euler: both are true
    Bleu Oleander: we don't have that many avs
    Wol Euler: indeed, but we do have thousands of scripts, literally
    Wol Euler: the point of Ana's article was to counter the hysteria about Avatar Rendering Cost
    Bleu Oleander: are mega prims still an issue?
    Agatha Macbeth: Who's Ana?
    Bleu Oleander: the blog link i gave
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Alfred Kelberry: bleu, not in our case
    Bleu Oleander: when are they a problem boxy?
    Alfred Kelberry: it depends
    Wol Euler: they are an issue for the Lindens who don't wakt to make them official, but AFAIK not otherwise
    Alfred Kelberry: there are many variables in the play, bleu
    Bleu Oleander: i'm gathering that
    Bleu Oleander: hi Zon
    Agatha Macbeth: If God is a DJ and life is a dance floor, what is the value of x?
    Wol Euler: 42
    Agatha Macbeth: Give her a coconut
    Bleu Oleander: maybe we could talk about that at one of the prim workshops boxy?
    arabella Ella: 21
    Qt Core: one of the mystery about debugging (whatever) there is usually no single point of failure but things relating to each other and weird combinations of effects
    Zon Kwan: hi
    Agatha Macbeth: Close!
    Wol Euler nods.
    Alfred Kelberry: bleu, my estimated guess (from what i've seen) is that in our case the culprit are the scripts. or to be more precise a subset of them that do not use resources efficiently.
    Qt Core: and the right answer is always 42 ;-) if not 666 ;-)
    Alfred Kelberry: qt, yes, it's called a kludge :)
    Bleu Oleander: some scripts are better than others?
    Agatha Macbeth: I noticed my inventory was loading slowly yesterday - but I was in Mieum
    Alfred Kelberry: bleu, some are better written than others. just like books :)
    Bleu Oleander: took script out of my hair ..... :)
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Does mine have one?
    Bleu Oleander: probably
    Wol Euler: probably several hundred
    Alfred Kelberry: 262 aga :)
    Agatha Macbeth: How do i get rid of them?
    Wol Euler: I don'T see what else you are wearingthat would be so heavily scripted
    Wol Euler: click on the hair
    Wol Euler: there is probably an "other" optoin in the resizing dialog
    Wol Euler: do NOT delete them until you're satisfied with the fit and the size of the hair thouigh
    Agatha Macbeth: I don't see a resizing dialog
    Wol Euler: what do you see?
    Bleu Oleander: make a copy first!
    Agatha Macbeth: Just a box saying 'choose context of change'
    Wol Euler: oh yes, right, sorry
    Wol Euler: right, that is the resizing dialog
    Wol Euler: "this prim" "all prims" "other", right?
    Agatha Macbeth: Just this and all
    Bleu Oleander: mine just said this or all ... then it had a delete option under "all prims"
    Wol Euler: aaaah
    Agatha Macbeth: Well I clicked that and the box vanished
    Agatha Macbeth: What's it for then - just resizing?
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Agatha Macbeth: Well it fits me just fine, always has
    Bleu Oleander: quite lovely
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh ty :)
    Bleu Oleander: yw :)
    Agatha Macbeth smiles bashfully
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Alfred Kelberry: guys, don't take it too seriously. your hair scripts don't affect much. at least not currently while there are way more naughtier scripts running on the sim somewhere.
    Agatha Macbeth: So, again, what do I do to get rid of the scripts?
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: when I click 'this prim' another box appears
    Bleu Oleander: choose "all prims" and see if there is an option to delete
    Agatha Macbeth: Scale up scale down and revert
    Agatha Macbeth: I did Bleu, the dialog box just disappeared
    Bleu Oleander: oh
    Alfred Kelberry: *enjoys watching girls doing geek stuff* :)
    Wol Euler grins.

    Calvino Rabeni: Reading a statement from another SL dialog group -- "It’s estimated that 58 percent of women in the United States and 48 percent of the men use online dating services."
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe they'll meet
    Calvino Rabeni: sounds like there could be a dating service for groups to meet other groups .. ?
    Alfred Kelberry: i've already met woly and aga
    Wol Euler grins.
    Agatha Macbeth: Not a bad idea...
    Zen Arado: that's higher than I thought
    Wol Euler: I was reading a lightweight newspaper article about RL couples who met while playing WoW
    Agatha Macbeth: Good grief
    Zen Arado: what's WoW?
    Alfred Kelberry: i thought wow is for teens
    Agatha Macbeth: What indeed?
    Wol Euler snorts.
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Wol Euler: (at boxy)
    Wol Euler: World of Warcraft, an online mystical fighting-demons-and-monsters game
    Alfred Kelberry: yes... i admint... a misconception that i've held dearly :)
    Zen Arado: ok
    Wol Euler: there are a lot of teens around, sure. But also many oldies, grandmothers even
    Wol Euler: far more women than you probably think!
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Can I shoot you dearie?'
    Calvino Rabeni: Used to be, the grandmothers had a role of playing Matchmaker
    Alfred Kelberry: lucky those who meet you there, woly :)
    Zen Arado: more people play that then SL?
    Zen Arado: than*
    Agatha Macbeth: Robert E Howard has much to answer for...
    Wol Euler: many more, 12 million paying subscribers
    Zen Arado: wow
    Wol Euler: I don'T know how many of them play regularly, but I'd bet it is a far higher percentage than SL's concurrency figure
    Calvino Rabeni: Match.com has 29,000,000 members paying $29.99 per month
    Alfred Kelberry: bad acronym though
    Wol Euler: hehehehe
    Agatha Macbeth: And they don't get lag
    Zen Arado: I don't see how many are online lately
    Zen Arado: in SL
    Wol Euler: it's fairly stable at around 45000, down from a peak of around 60000 a year ago
    Alfred Kelberry: cal, same way facebook has half a billion. half of them are inactive.
    Wol Euler: as long as they continue to pay their fees :)
    Calvino Rabeni: yah, but paying by credit card auto withdrawal
    Alfred Kelberry: sl is free and more fun :)
    Wol Euler: differently fun :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Free-ish
    Calvino Rabeni: "Not surprisingly, members of these online dating sites aren’t always completely honest. Members tend to inflate their yearly salaries by 20 percent and their heights by two inches. And, of course, no one’s that truthful when it comes to weight. It’s estimated that 59 percent of women and 53 percent of men deflate their actual weight when trying to attract mates on online sites. (And, yes, this does rank as one of the most unsurprising study results ever.)"
    Agatha Macbeth: Awww
    Zen Arado: something sad about that
    Agatha Macbeth: I must admit i find the whole online dating think rather sad
    Agatha Macbeth: Snap
    Zen Arado: lucky I have a GSOH
    Zen Arado: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: I have two :p
    Calvino Rabeni: With SL, I've heard people say ..." hey, my avatar is the REAL me, more real than that old other self"
    Wol Euler nods.
    Calvino Rabeni: I guess I feel that rather sad
    Agatha Macbeth: Not necessarily...
    Calvino Rabeni: What is GSOH?
    Zen Arado: good sense of humour
    Agatha Macbeth: A typo for GOSH :p
    Calvino Rabeni: har har har :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Or something
    Zen Arado: tall slim non smoker etc..
    Agatha Macbeth: TSNS
    Zen Arado: likes meals and dancing ...
    Agatha Macbeth: And shagging
    Zen Arado: own home and car....
    Zen Arado: yawn
    Agatha Macbeth: Oops, I'll edit that out
    Zen Arado: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: moonlit walks and the whole nine yards
    Zen Arado: not allowed to say that :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Isn't that the whole point tho?
    Zen Arado: no kids....big bonus
    Agatha Macbeth: Theoretically...
    Zen Arado: we don't want to admit that do we?
    Agatha Macbeth: Naah
    Zen Arado: likes dressing up in women's clothes and dogging
    Agatha Macbeth: Bully for you
    Zen Arado: delete that too :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You should be an MP or a judge
    Alfred Kelberry: i think it should be the session title, zen
    Zen Arado: of course
    Zen Arado: lol
    Wol Euler grins
    Zen Arado: remembers Monty Ptyhon sketch
    Zen Arado: I am a lumberjack...
    Agatha Macbeth: I remember many :p
    Agatha Macbeth: and I'm OK
    Alfred Kelberry: monty python saddens me
    Agatha Macbeth: Nobody asked you ;-)
    Zen Arado: why boxy?
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm in the circle, aga! :P
    Alfred Kelberry: even sitting
    Agatha Macbeth: Go and play with yer bone
    Alfred Kelberry: zen... well, i don't find it appealing
    Zen Arado: boxy on a box
    Zen Arado: I only liked some of them
    Agatha Macbeth: Better on one than in one...
    Alfred Kelberry: zen, say something philosophically impressive
    Zen Arado: huh
    Agatha Macbeth: I just noticed Alf has paws on the bottom of his feet
    Wol Euler: toepads
    Agatha Macbeth: As well
    Alfred Kelberry: zen, a new topic
    Agatha Macbeth: Bit late
    Alfred Kelberry: pups do have paws, aga
    Zen Arado: new topics getting scarce
    Agatha Macbeth: Who touched Cal's thing?
    Zen Arado: did I tell you I was at a zen retreat last week?
    Alfred Kelberry: go on
    Agatha Macbeth: In Scotland/
    Agatha Macbeth: ?
    Zen Arado: no in Benburb
    Zen Arado: N.Ireland
    Agatha Macbeth: Where?
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    Calvino Rabeni: that's great., zen. I was at a Calvino retreat. It was pretty good in fact
    Zen Arado: http://www.servites-benburb.com/
    Wol Euler: ah!
    Zen Arado: yeh
    Wol Euler: your second RL retreat this spring, right?
    Zen Arado: was at one in Feb
    Agatha Macbeth: Are the servites same as the servants of mary?
    Zen Arado: 3 day only
    Zen Arado: this was 6 days
    Wol Euler nods.
    Zen Arado: not sure
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh yes, it says so
    Agatha Macbeth: Sry, didn't read far enough
    Zen Arado: we only use the place
    Zen Arado: they are trying to turn it into a retirement home for Catholic priests
    Zen Arado: the Servites are American I believe
    Alfred Kelberry: "retirement home" - that on itself sounds depressing
    Zen Arado: priests don't have family don't forget
    Zen Arado: celibate
    Zen Arado: so they have company
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, that's why they date children
    Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.
    Wol Euler: "date" implies consent ...
    Zen Arado: rape
    Wol Euler: if that is where you're heading
    Alfred Kelberry: not in my sentence
    Wol Euler: my dears, it's getting late, I must be off.
    Alfred Kelberry: i decided to put it mildly
    Wol Euler: goodnight, take care
