    [13:00] Wol Euler: friday 3 june, 1pm
    [13:07] Wol Euler: hello dash
    [13:08] Dash Earthboy: hey Wol GTSY!
    [13:08] Wol Euler: likewise
    [13:08] Dash Earthboy: i'm kinda excited
    [13:08] Wol Euler: mmm?
    [13:08] Dash Earthboy: i just got a chance to use equivocation and gerundive in the same sentence!
    [13:08] Agatha Macbeth: Hello Catelope and dash :)
    [13:08] Wol Euler: heheheheh
    [13:08] Dash Earthboy: hey agers
    [13:09] Wol Euler: hello aggers
    [13:09] Agatha Macbeth: New agers? :p
    [13:09] Wol Euler: that's some pretty amazing hair.
    [13:09] Agatha Macbeth: Why than you :)
    [13:09] Agatha Macbeth: +k
    [13:09] Wol Euler: :)
    [13:09] Agatha Macbeth: Nice antlers
    [13:09] Wol Euler: why thank you
    [13:10] Dash Earthboy: don't let those things get tangled up w/each other
    [13:10] Wol Euler: heheh
    [13:10] Wol Euler: have to be careful later on, during the
    [13:10] Wol Euler: onigokko
    [13:10] Agatha Macbeth: Be careful when you go through doors too
    [13:10] Agatha Macbeth: Someone forgot something
    [13:10] Wol Euler: yeah
    [13:10] Wol Euler: sorry
    [13:10] Wol Euler: stop
    [13:11] Wol Euler: stop
    [13:11] Wol Euler: onigokko
    [13:11] Agatha Macbeth: onigokko
    [13:11] Agatha Macbeth: Stereo!
    [13:11] Wol Euler: friday!
    [13:11] Wol Euler: it is the day of fri!
    [13:11] Wol Euler: wahoo.
    [13:11] Agatha Macbeth: Good old Fri
    [13:11] Agatha Macbeth: Whoever he was
    [13:12] Wol Euler: probably freya, and therefore probably "she"
    [13:12] Wol Euler: google would know
    [13:12] Dash Earthboy: i'm frying here in 98 degrees F
    [13:12] Wol Euler: The name Friday comes from the Old English Frīġedæġ, meaning the "day of Frige". The same holds for Frīatag in Old High German, Freitag in Modern German and Vrijdag in Dutch.
    [13:13] Wol Euler: heh, barely warm here at 22C
    [13:13] Dash Earthboy: yah
    [13:13] Agatha Macbeth: 23C here, that's enough for me
    [13:13] Dash Earthboy: i wish I was in Salt Lake City
    [13:13] Dash Earthboy: same temp as you have
    [13:13] Agatha Macbeth: Why are you a Mormon?
    [13:13] Dash Earthboy: people thought I was Aggers
    [13:13] Agatha Macbeth: Ha
    [13:14] Agatha Macbeth: Did you keep knocking on their doors and annoying them?
    [13:14] Wol Euler: Frigg is the most prominent female member of the Aesir faction of the Germanic gods, and often identified as the spouse of the chief god, *Wōdanaz (Woden, Odin). Freya is the most prominent female member of the Vanir faction of the gods, is described as being adept at seid (magic), and is the wife of Ód.
    [13:14] Agatha Macbeth: Eh?
    [13:14] Agatha Macbeth: What has that to do with salt Lake City might one ask?
    [13:14] Dash Earthboy: on my newspaper job reviewing concerts and movies out there, me and my three g/fs always had the best seats
    [13:14] Wol Euler: less than zero
    [13:14] Wol Euler: stop
    [13:15] Wol Euler: stop
    [13:15] Agatha Macbeth: stop
    [13:15] Wol Euler: really stop
    [13:15] Wol Euler: simon says stop
    [13:15] Agatha Macbeth: STOP
    [13:15] Agatha Macbeth: STOP!!!!
    [13:15] Agatha Macbeth: OMG
    [13:15] Dash Earthboy: stop?
    [13:15] Wol Euler: have to kill it from the World menu
    [13:15] Wol Euler: "stop animating my av"
    [13:15] Dash Earthboy: whew!
    [13:15] Wol Euler: yah, it gets really unhappy if two people try to start it at the same time
    [13:16] Agatha Macbeth kills onigokko
    [13:16] Agatha Macbeth: RIP
    [13:16] Wol Euler wipes away a tear
    [13:16] Dash Earthboy: my tears are from allergies here
    [13:16] Agatha Macbeth: Oh dear
    [13:17] Agatha Macbeth: That time of year I'm afraid
    [13:17] Dash Earthboy: despite my taking a Claritin a few hours ago
    [13:17] Agatha Macbeth: I'm constantly sneezing too
    [13:17] Agatha Macbeth: Never saw a fetish catelope before :)
    [13:17] Wol Euler: heh, what a sheltered life you have lead up to now
    [13:18] Agatha Macbeth: Must have
    [13:19] Dash Earthboy: Wol, out in Salt Lake City I looked pretty much like I do in that Earth Day post pic

    [13:19] Wol Euler: well, this is fascinating. I went on reading wikipedia after finding Frigg, and discovered the linguistic version of the Higgs Boson.

    [13:19] Wol Euler: ah :)
    [13:19] Agatha Macbeth: Really?
    [13:19] Wol Euler: mmhmm
    [13:19] Agatha Macbeth is amazed
    [13:19] Agatha Macbeth: I'm amazed
    [13:20] Agatha Macbeth: See?
    [13:20] Wol Euler: the Higgs Boson, as of course you know, but some readers might not, is a *supposed* particle in subatomic physics theory
    [13:20] Wol Euler: never been seen, but presumed to exist
    [13:20] Agatha Macbeth: Oh THAT Higgs boson
    [13:20] Agatha Macbeth: ???
    [13:21] Agatha Macbeth: I always thought a boson was a bloke on a ship

    [13:21] Wol Euler: the linguistic equivalent is the set of three sounds presumed to have existed in Proto-Indo-European language, but which are not found in any current language!

    [13:21] Wol Euler: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laryngeal_theory

    [13:21] Dash Earthboy: it's all Greek to me...or at least pi
    [13:21] Wol Euler: isn'T that amazing?
    [13:21] Agatha Macbeth: Woooo
    [13:21] Wol Euler: well, I found it amazing. Perhaps I am just easily entertained.
    [13:21] Agatha Macbeth: Perhaps so
    [13:21] Agatha Macbeth: Or maybe just gullible
    [13:22] Wol Euler: or that!
    [13:22] Dash Earthboy: me too
    [13:22] Wol Euler: though this is not April 1, as far as I can tell
    [13:22] Agatha Macbeth nods
    [13:22] Agatha Macbeth: Wish it was
    [13:22] Dash Earthboy: June she'll change her tune...in restless walks she'll prowl the night
    [13:23] Agatha Macbeth: Is a boson anything like a tachyon?
    [13:23] Wol Euler: to be honest I'm not sure, I believe that it is sub-sub-particle currently believed to be the base unit of all the sub-particles that make up neutrons
    [13:23] Agatha Macbeth: Whoa
    [13:23] Wol Euler: yeah
    [13:23] Wol Euler: pretty deep stuff
    [13:24] Agatha Macbeth: Quark strangeness and charm
    [13:24] Wol Euler: exactly
    [13:24] Wol Euler: if less tunefully
    [13:24] Dash Earthboy: heavy for something so tiny
    [13:24] Agatha Macbeth: There ya go
    [13:24] Wol Euler: The Higgs boson is a hypothetical massive elementary particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model of particle physics. The existence of the particle is postulated to resolve inconsistencies in theoretical physics and attempts are being made to find the particle by experiment, using the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN and the Tevatron at Fermilab.
    [13:24] Agatha Macbeth: No Yaku?
    [13:24] Wol Euler: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higgs_boson
    [13:25] Wol Euler: no, he can't be here tonight, travelling. So I've taken the session
    [13:25] Agatha Macbeth: Funny, CERN never tweeted about it
    [13:25] Wol Euler: hello katira
    [13:25] Dash Earthboy: hey katira
    [13:25] Katira Silent: hello
    [13:26] Wol Euler: have you been here before?
    [13:26] Agatha Macbeth: Ms Silent
    [13:26] Katira Silent: yes and no.. familiar with many of your members . haven't participated in a Pab
    [13:26] Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    [13:26] Agatha Macbeth: Dangerous to get too familiar with our members :p
    [13:27] Wol Euler: okay, well I'll give you a notecard and a brief intro in IM so the others can continue to talk
    [13:27] Dash Earthboy: :)
    [13:27] Agatha Macbeth: About what?
    [13:27] Katira Silent: thats fine.. thankyou'
    [13:27] Wol Euler: whatever it is you were talking about
    [13:27] Agatha Macbeth: Can't remember now
    [13:27] Agatha Macbeth: Salt Lake city?
    [13:28] Dash Earthboy: hair & antlers?
    [13:28] Agatha Macbeth: Hmmmm
    [13:28] Dash Earthboy: equivocation and derundive?
    [13:28] Agatha Macbeth tickles Wol's feet
    [13:28] Dash Earthboy: gerundive?
    [13:28] Wol Euler squirms and giggles
    [13:28] Agatha Macbeth: Ah, the good old gerund
    [13:29] Dash Earthboy: yah
    [13:29] Dash Earthboy: i used equivocation and gerundive in a survey answer just before coming to SL now
    [13:29] Agatha Macbeth: Good lord
    [13:30] Wol Euler: you get +2 to your intellect stat for that
    [13:30] Agatha Macbeth: Shhhhhhhhhhhh
    [13:31] Dash Earthboy: the pause that refreshes the paws eh Wol?
    [13:31] Wol Euler: hehehehe
    [13:31] Wol Euler: nice
    [13:31] Agatha Macbeth: You know, I never checked to see if i was wearing any underpants before I came out
    [13:32] Wol Euler: o.O
    [13:32] Wol Euler bites her tongue
    [13:32] Agatha Macbeth: Yes I am
    [13:32] Wol Euler: whew
    [13:32] Agatha Macbeth: (whew)
    [13:32] Agatha Macbeth: Snap
    [13:32] Agatha Macbeth: The silly things one sometimes forgets
    [13:32] Wol Euler nods.
    [13:33] Wol Euler: well, you probably had more important things on your mind, like your hair
    [13:33] Agatha Macbeth: Ah, right
    [13:33] Dash Earthboy: does forgetting help us to play?
    [13:33] Agatha Macbeth: The comb is about four feet long
    [13:33] Dash Earthboy: as in Play as Being?
    [13:33] Agatha Macbeth: Could do dash
    [13:33] Wol Euler: perhaps :) what do you think?
    [13:34] Agatha Macbeth: Or maybe playing helps us to forget
    [13:34] Dash Earthboy: hmmmm....well then, playing songs helps me remember them...
    [13:35] Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, why not?
    [13:35] Dash Earthboy: but forgetting them doesn't help me to play them :)
    [13:35] Katira Silent: to put panties on?
    [13:35] Wol Euler ponders on the possibility of "playing" a song
    [13:35] Agatha Macbeth: and losing....
    [13:35] Katira Silent: any particular genre
    [13:35] Wol Euler: the usual meaning of playing a piece of music is in truth more like working at it
    [13:35] Dash Earthboy: jazz
    [13:36] Agatha Macbeth: Yay
    [13:36] Agatha Macbeth: Miles davis
    [13:36] Wol Euler smiles.
    [13:36] Dash Earthboy: met him
    [13:36] Wol Euler: wow
    [13:36] Agatha Macbeth: With his sax?
    [13:36] Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.
    [13:36] Dash Earthboy: Intermountain Jazz Fest in Salt Lake
    [13:36] Dash Earthboy: a few decades back
    [13:37] Agatha Macbeth: Good ol' SLC again
    [13:37] Dash Earthboy: good place for me
    [13:37] Wol Euler: perhaps he carried a sax when he wanted to travel incognito
    [13:37] Dash Earthboy: tempted to go back
    [13:37] Katira Silent: i think a jazz sax wouldn't help put them on.. but more take them off
    [13:37] Wol Euler grins.
    [13:37] Agatha Macbeth: Sax appeal
    [13:37] Wol Euler nods to Dash. THere are surely worse places to be
    [13:38] Dash Earthboy: they had a Jazz Program at Univ Utah in addition to a Music Program
    [13:38] Agatha Macbeth wonders if the Mormons joined in
    [13:38] Dash Earthboy: through that I got to meet the guy who wrote music for the Batman TV show
    [13:38] Agatha Macbeth: Wow
    [13:38] Wol Euler: wow indeed
    [13:38] Dash Earthboy: and the guy who composed for the Dick Van Dyke show
    [13:38] Wol Euler: nananananananananananana Batman!
    [13:39] Agatha Macbeth: Good old Dick
    [13:39] Dash Earthboy: yah
    [13:39] Dash Earthboy: both those guys invited me to visit them and get known in LA but I never did follow up
    [13:40] Wol Euler: fascinating. Why not, if I may ask?
    [13:40] Agatha Macbeth: And you ended up in SL instead
    [13:40] Dash Earthboy: no I met them in SLC at Univ UT
    [13:41] Dash Earthboy: Wol, I was determined not to succeed except on my own merit
    [13:41] Dash Earthboy: not through connections
    [13:41] Agatha Macbeth: Very commendable
    [13:41] Dash Earthboy: I was dumb DUMB!
    [13:41] Wol Euler: yep :)
    [13:41] Agatha Macbeth: Tho not good for the bank balance
    [13:41] Wol Euler: but very understandable
    [13:41] Wol Euler: hello eliza!
    [13:41] Wol Euler: happy friday
    [13:41] Dash Earthboy: yah
    [13:41] Agatha Macbeth: Yay Liz :))
    [13:41] Dash Earthboy: hey eliza
    [13:41] Eliza Madrigal: Happy Friday Wol! :))
    [13:42] Katira Silent: waves at Eliza
    [13:42] Eliza Madrigal: Heya Aggers :)) , Katira, Dash :)
    [13:42] Eliza Madrigal: Ohhh arrows, neat :)
    [13:42] Wol Euler: katira, there is a friday ritual here, that is part of it :)
    [13:42] Agatha Macbeth: Can I ask you about June 12th?
    [13:42] Wol Euler: just wear it, it's invisible and almost totally harmless
    [13:42] Eliza Madrigal: Why yes.... I am wearing this shirt in order to tell you to.....
    [13:42] Agatha Macbeth: Ok
    [13:42] Eliza Madrigal: Ask Bleu :)
    [13:42] Wol Euler: heheheheh
    [13:42] Agatha Macbeth: What about June 12th?
    [13:43] Eliza Madrigal: :) Make your reservation and feel free to bring a guest!
    [13:43] Eliza Madrigal: but you must say so in advance
    [13:43] Agatha Macbeth: I already did i think
    [13:43] Wol Euler: next sunday, at noon SL
    [13:43] Wol Euler: (reminding herself)
    [13:43] Eliza Madrigal: then you are set! June 12 June 12 June 12
    [13:43] Eliza Madrigal: Noon :)
    [13:43] Agatha Macbeth: Right
    [13:43] Wol Euler: high noon
    [13:44] Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    [13:44] Agatha Macbeth: Hi Noon
    [13:44] Wol Euler: showdown somewhere or other
    [13:44] Agatha Macbeth: OK Corral?
    [13:44] Eliza Madrigal: hard to know how to dress for a mystery
    [13:44] Agatha Macbeth: Mysteriously?
    [13:44] Eliza Madrigal: safe bet, probably
    [13:44] Agatha Macbeth: Aha
    [13:44] Eliza Madrigal: :))
    [13:44] Wol Euler: lots of thick padding, and stain resistant
    [13:44] Eliza Madrigal: ah, good idea
    [13:44] Agatha Macbeth: Again?
    [13:46] Dash Earthboy: and don't forget your underwear ;)
    [13:46] Agatha Macbeth: I'll try not to
    [13:46] Wol Euler: flameproof underwear
    [13:46] Eliza Madrigal: always a good tip
    [13:47] Eliza Madrigal: Agatha, btw you look fantastic... long black hair flowing in the breeze, reminding me that there is weather in SL
    [13:47] Agatha Macbeth: Is it?
    [13:47] Agatha Macbeth: Can't say I noticed
    [13:48] Agatha Macbeth: Hm, well kind of
    [13:49] Eliza Madrigal: I've been online so much to day my letters are having to be retyped 3 times
    [13:49] Agatha Macbeth: I seem to have a sign over my head saying Click for Pillow
    [13:49] Agatha Macbeth: Strange
    [13:49] Katira Silent: please excuse me.. rl is calling
    [13:49] Wol Euler finds Aggers nicely pillowy
    [13:49] Eliza Madrigal: Bye Katira, nice to see you :)
    [13:49] Agatha Macbeth: Shalom Kat
    [13:49] Wol Euler: bye katira, nice meeting you
    [13:49] Eliza Madrigal: Have a lovely weekend
    [13:50] Dash Earthboy: bye Katira
    [13:50] Katira Silent: bye thankyou
    [13:50] Eliza Madrigal: OOh not arrows, veggies!
    [13:50] Wol Euler: yeah!
    [13:50] Wol Euler: and bread rolls
    [13:50] Eliza Madrigal: I guess I wasn't rezzed completely.... cute outfit she was wearing, with the satchel
    [13:50] Agatha Macbeth: I didn't see the Indians
    [13:52] Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    [13:52] Wol Euler shivers and smiles
    [13:52] Eliza Madrigal: did a little boxy make that?
    [13:52] Wol Euler: no, it's a proper retail (heheh) item
    [13:52] Eliza Madrigal: wow, cute
    [13:53] Eliza Madrigal: brb
    [13:53] Wol Euler smiles.
    [13:54] Agatha Macbeth: What's a softfur?
    [13:54] Wol Euler: a typo?
    [13:54] Dash Earthboy: reminds me of an alley in Chicago....;)
    [13:54] Eliza Madrigal: back...
    [13:54] Agatha Macbeth: Hello back
    [13:54] Eliza Madrigal: I know my exciting presence was missed
    [13:55] Dash Earthboy: we're just getting catty here
    [13:55] Wol Euler: we were inconsolable
    [13:55] Agatha Macbeth: Always Liz...
    [13:55] Eliza Madrigal: yes, as I imagined
    [13:55] Eliza Madrigal: never fear
    [13:55] Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    [13:55] Dash Earthboy: hey mila
    [13:55] Eliza Madrigal: Hi Mila, cute outfit :)
    [13:55] milakel Resident: hi :)
    [13:55] Agatha Macbeth: Talk of the devil
    [13:55] milakel Resident: thank you :)
    [13:55] Wol Euler: hello mila, remind me ot give you a non-appalling facelight.
    [13:55] Wol Euler: that one is terrible!
    [13:55] Wol Euler: please take it off and delete it
    [13:55] Agatha Macbeth: I thought the sun came up again :p
    [13:55] Eliza Madrigal: It is Wol's new charity
    [13:56] Eliza Madrigal: she has donated to me as well
    [13:56] Eliza Madrigal: :)
    [13:56] milakel Resident: better than nothing, woly :)
    [13:56] Wol Euler: saving the world from awfulness
    [13:56] Wol Euler: no, mila, not better than nothing.
    [13:56] Eliza Madrigal: hahah one avatar at a time
    [13:56] Agatha Macbeth: Have a Vox one, they're good
    [13:56] milakel Resident: oh, fury girl today! :)
    [13:56] Wol Euler: please PLEASE take it off now and delete it
    [13:57] Agatha Macbeth: Been cheating at hunts again?
    [13:57] Eliza Madrigal: Oooh.... do they have those pages in SL blogs with the eye bar over the avatar, to show 'what not to do'?
    [13:57] milakel Resident: ouch, it really looks bad on that pic
    [13:57] milakel Resident: v1, woly?
    [13:57] Wol Euler: no, lousy facelight
    [13:57] Agatha Macbeth: Ha
    [13:57] Wol Euler: I have a good graphics card and a fast internet connection
    [13:58] Wol Euler: that is how it looks on a good pc
    [13:58] milakel Resident: in v2 it's nicely lit
    [13:58] Wol Euler: please PLEASE take it of and delete it
    [13:58] Agatha Macbeth: Not a Mac, you note...
    [13:58] Wol Euler: because your graphcis settings are too low
    [13:58] Wol Euler: please PLEASE take it of and delete it
    [13:58] Eliza Madrigal: I said the same Mila, but I was on phoenix
    [13:58] Eliza Madrigal: :)
    [13:58] milakel Resident: it's not about fast connection or gpu. it's how your client renders the scene.
    [13:58] Wol Euler: its about your shitty facelight
    [13:58] Agatha Macbeth: Where the primbox?
    [13:59] Wol Euler: three facelights actually.
    [13:59] Wol Euler: if you show transparent you'll see them all
    [13:59] Eliza Madrigal: I like that phrase 'this is just the way my client renders the scene, man"
    [13:59] milakel Resident: ah, let me try the vox light you gave me
    [13:59] Agatha Macbeth nods @ Liz
    [13:59] Agatha Macbeth: That's a good one, yes
    [13:59] Agatha Macbeth: I think avid do a good one too
    [14:01] milakel Resident: oh, cool. it's adaptive!
    [14:01] Agatha Macbeth: Are we sorted now guys?
    [14:01] Wol Euler: yep
    [14:01] milakel Resident: thank you, woly :)
    [14:01] Agatha Macbeth: Great
    [14:01] Eliza Madrigal: ravenclaw!
    [14:02] Agatha Macbeth: Where?
    [14:02] Wol Euler: written by somebody who took the trouble to read up on how light is rendered in SL
    [14:02] milakel Resident: it has menu and all. fancy thing :)
    [14:02] Wol Euler: *coughs*
    [14:02] milakel Resident: *deletes the old one* :)
    [14:02] Agatha Macbeth: In other words,someone with no life...
    [14:02] Agatha Macbeth: :p
    [14:02] Wol Euler: in point of fact, written by somebody who then wrote half of the LSL wiki article on Light :)
    [14:02] Agatha Macbeth: Wow
    [14:02] Agatha Macbeth: Not THE....
    [14:02] Wol Euler: *grins*
    [14:03] milakel Resident: aga, or life well organized :)
    [14:03] Eliza Madrigal: :))
    [14:03] Agatha Macbeth: Ah you geeks
    [14:03] Agatha Macbeth: Should all be shot
    [14:03] Wol Euler: think how dull and badly lit your life would be without us
    [14:03] Agatha Macbeth is thinking
    [14:03] milakel Resident: ah, nice, woly. it's my preferred resource (yet rather dated)
    [14:04] Agatha Macbeth grins like an idiot
    [14:04] milakel Resident: can i distribute the vox light to others? :)
    [14:04] Wol Euler: please do
    [14:04] Agatha Macbeth: I already have one
    [14:04] Eliza Madrigal: each one reach one

    [14:33] Wol Euler: soonish, yes. What's on your mind?
    [14:34] Agatha Macbeth: Just thinking aloud
    [14:34] Agatha Macbeth: Mila's gone again
    [14:34] Wol Euler: the thought of linux put her into a reverie
    [14:34] Wol Euler: probably drooling into the keyboard
