*Wol Euler was guardian for this session.*

eggsalad Ormstein: mornin, wol =hug=

Wol Euler: evening, egg!

Wol Euler hugs right back at ya

Wol Euler: how's life?

eggsalad Ormstein: dull, just the way I like it

Wol Euler: heheheheh

Wol Euler: yeah, I understand that feeling

eggsalad Ormstein: is there anything to discuss?

Wol Euler: hmmmmmmmm

eggsalad Ormstein: hi rhia! =hug=

Wol Euler: hello rhi

Wol Euler: can you walk?

Wol Euler: lost her again...

eggsalad Ormstein: dammit

Wol Euler: we dwellers in major cities get so used to fast reliable internet connections

Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning

Wol Euler: hello yaku, good mroning

eggsalad Ormstein: this is true, although America has the overall worst net service of any industrialized nation, as well

eggsalad Ormstein: hi yaku

Wol Euler: well, so much of the US is very sparsely settled, which we outsiders often forget

eggsalad Ormstein: yes, that is indeed the problem

Wol Euler: hard enough to get electricity and telephone to those people, let alone glassfibre internet

eggsalad Ormstein: we don't even have fibre internet in most big cities, yet!

Wol Euler: heheheheheh, ah well that is something different then :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: well i was very amazed how good the net services are for example in sweden which has a very low population density, but of course there are also some area´s and the population centers to the south

Wol Euler: but actually perhaps it's the same phenomenon. Germany is half hte size of TExas and has a third of hte population of the US

Yakuzza Lethecus: here where i live in germany internet is also not very fast, but at least reliable

Wol Euler: erm, a quarter actually

Wol Euler: (population, around 88 million)

Wol Euler: we have the great advantage of a very high average pop density

Wol Euler: that's great, rhi!

Yakuzza Lethecus: morning rhi

Wol Euler: that'll be a great relief, I bet

--BELL--

eggsalad Ormstein: not much of a discussion, so if you will excuse me

Wol Euler: heh

Rhiannon Dragoone: TC egg

Wol Euler: I hope people don't come here thinking that I will entertain them :-/

Wol Euler: I am not a circus performer

Rhiannon Dragoone: No, That is my job. If I could dance, I would. lol

Wol Euler: hopefully tomorrow :)

Rhiannon Dragoone: Yes!

Rhiannon Dragoone: I can dance right in the fountain. lol

Rhiannon Dragoone: brb

Yakuzza Lethecus: well rezzable pole might be missing then :P

Wol Euler: we'll cross that bridge if and when we come to it

Rhiannon Dragoone: back

Wol Euler: wb

Yakuzza Lethecus: wb

Wol Euler: yaku, you'll be 800 days old on tuesday :)

Rhiannon Dragoone: Rezzable pole? You're saying you want me to pole dance?

Rhiannon Dragoone: Yak, congratulations!

Yakuzza Lethecus: no, i was only thinking about the fact that a lot of things here are rezzable and skripted

Yakuzza Lethecus: thx :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: not much celebration and even thinking abou that tho :)

Wol Euler smiles.

Yakuzza Lethecus: but that might be a subject, does the age of our avatars effect us ?

Yakuzza Lethecus: well one factor would be our immersiveness

Wol Euler: the experience they acquire certainly does, as in RL

Wol Euler nods.

Rhiannon Dragoone: Well you should celebrate. Not every day You turn 800

Yakuzza Lethecus: the 1000 and the regular sl rezzdays maybe

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: celebrating the 100s makes a kind of sense, since life seems to go so much faster here

Rhiannon Dragoone: Why do you think that is, wol?

--BELL--

Wol Euler: I think it's because of the emotional intensity of SL, which is paradoxically due to the lack of other info (no smell, no sight, no touch)

Yakuzza Lethecus: i would also agree on the thought that life seems to flow faster in secondlife, so many ppl i feel i haven´t seen in a long time when i havne´t talked to em in a week, in rl it´s still that having seen someone last month feels not that far away, well depends on the level of relationship of course, still i don´t like celebrating since i haven´t developed fun in organizing stuff and feel party´s as a burden as soon as it comes to organization part

Rhiannon Dragoone: It is interesting to me that a month in SL is like years in RL. Why do you think it's so intense here?

Wol Euler: focus, I think. We experience intensely the two channels that are actually open here

Wol Euler: and my theory, which I'm discovering "live" right at this moment, is that the intensity makes it feel faster

Wol Euler: compared with the less intense because much broader communicatino in RL

Wol Euler: this theory may be entirely crap, please feel free to debate it

Rhiannon Dragoone: some people I know have suggested it's because of the rate of change. Others because its a form of entertainment, and we expect things to go fast in entertainment, but I agree with you, wol, that it's because of the intensity, but I'm not sure why it is so intense here.

Wol Euler: I'm not sure about "entertainment"

Wol Euler: unless you count all of life as entertaining, which I do :)

Rhiannon Dragoone: Yeah, That Didn't ring true to me either

Wol Euler chuckles.

Wol Euler: it's like the pseudo- great debate about whether SL is a game or not.

Wol Euler: simple answer: no.

Wol Euler: next.

Wol Euler: anyone who's ever played a real game knows that this is not one

Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, but fir some it us. Um having Pam Clifton speak before my group tomorrow, BTW

Wol Euler: who's she?

Yakuzza Lethecus: pamela clift

Yakuzza Lethecus: roadside philosopers

Yakuzza Lethecus: you´ve been there wol, you know her :)

Wol Euler: oh, right; I was thinking of RL people :)

Wol Euler: heheheh

Wol Euler: the worlds, they blend

Wol Euler: for some of us

Wol Euler: what's her subject tomorrow?

--BELL--

Rhiannon Dragoone: oh her discussion of the ways of being in sl

Rhiannon Dragoone: That's why when you said SL is not a game, it reminded me of the event

Wol Euler: I'm going to dinner with frriends, but might be back for that. What time is it?

Rhiannon Dragoone: 6:00pm slt

Wol Euler: ah, that is 3am on Sunday for me :) perhaps I might make that

Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, 6pm slt is 3am ?

Wol Euler: erm, yes, nine hour difference

Wol Euler: so alas no

Rhiannon Dragoone: 6pm alt Fri is 0100 Sat gmt

Yakuzza Lethecus: i got to go, nice to see you both, and thanks wol

Wol Euler: bye yaku, take care

Rhiannon Dragoone: bye yak

Wol Euler: 9 hrs to German time, 1:55am SL is 10:55am MEZ

Rhiannon Dragoone: I should go too. Its getting late for me

Wol Euler: yeah, goodnight rhi, and I hope your DSL works

Rhiannon Dragoone: Thanks. It will be great to move.

Rhiannon Dragoone: waves and poofs
