    [13:02] Dash Earthboy: hey Fefonz
    [13:02] Fefonz Quan: hey dash
    [13:03] Dash Earthboy: you're expecting company aren't you?
    [13:03] Fefonz Quan: Sure :)
    [13:03] Fefonz Quan: I don't think we've met, have we?
    [13:03] Dash Earthboy: i think you are thinking right! :)
    [13:05] Fefonz Quan: Yet I guess you've been here before, so you know about the recording , the 9-sec practice etc.
    [13:06] Dash Earthboy: since you've been around for awhile, ig uess maybe you could tell me if I'd ruffle any feathers by asking Rhi and some of my other group's coordinators to keep me off the regular mail lists?
    [13:06] Dash Earthboy: i have little time to spend in SL and seem to have to wade through a ton of notices upon entry each time
    [13:07] Dash Earthboy: hey Wol!
    [13:07] Wol Euler: hello dash, hello fef
    [13:07] Fefonz Quan: Hey Wol!
    [13:07] Dash Earthboy: Wol, the deed is done...sold my instruction guitar this morning
    [13:07] Fefonz Quan: well, I guess the messages depend on how many groups you are registered to
    [13:07] Dash Earthboy: hey Bruce!
    [13:07] Fefonz Quan: what guitar?
    [13:07] Wol Euler: glad to hear it, dash; I hope you got a fair price?
    [13:08] Wol Euler: hello bruce!
    [13:08] Fefonz Quan: Yo, Bruce, it's great to see you!
    [13:08] Dash Earthboy: i had a nylon string guitar I had got for teaching others how to play
    [13:08] Dash Earthboy: the nylon strings are bigger and it was easier for them to see where my fingers were
    [13:09] Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Fef, Dash, Wol!
    [13:09] Fefonz Quan: I see. I have one too, though not too big i guess
    [13:09] Fefonz Quan: Bruce, how are you doing?
    [13:09] Dash Earthboy: i found out i could have got 3x the price out in California
    [13:09] Bruce Mowbray: me listens to Dash and his guitar...
    [13:09] Dash Earthboy: location location location...and timing
    [13:09] SophiaSharon Larnia: hi everyone :)
    [13:09] Dash Earthboy: hey Sharon
    [13:10] Wol Euler: hello sharon
    [13:10] Bruce Mowbray: I'm still very weak and a bit wobby, Fef, but getting a bit stronger every day, Thanks for asking.
    [13:10] Wol Euler nods.
    [13:10] Dash Earthboy: been up long today Bruce?
    [13:10] Fefonz Quan: Hey Sharon!
    [13:10] Fefonz Quan: Good to hear that Bruce.
    [13:10] Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Sharon.
    [13:10] Bruce Mowbray: ty
    [13:11] Dash Earthboy: found some good grocery deals this morning too
    [13:11] Fefonz Quan: So i guess it was a fine guitar dash, those kind are not so pricy usually
    [13:11] Dash Earthboy: how about 10 lbs of Idaho potatoes for $2
    [13:11] Wol Euler: wow
    [13:11] SophiaSharon Larnia: ha
    [13:11] Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    [13:12] Fefonz Quan is more impressed with guitars :)
    [13:12] Dash Earthboy: oh the guitar was a yamaha and I put in a Texas Transducer hot spot pickup
    [13:14] Dash Earthboy: how about a gallon of 2% milk for $1.49?
    [13:16] Dash Earthboy: it got up to almost 36C today
    [13:16] Dash Earthboy: currently holding at 33C
    [13:17] Dash Earthboy: up in the 90s for us on the F scale
    [13:17] Wol Euler smiles and shakes her head. Too hot for me
    [13:17] Dash Earthboy: i hope the guy didn't leave the guitar in his car all day
    [13:17] SophiaSharon Larnia: its that here Dash, are you close to me geographically?
    [13:18] Dash Earthboy: i'm in Georgia
    [13:18] SophiaSharon Larnia: ha im a bit north from you, pa
    [13:18] Dash Earthboy: yah
    [13:18] Dash Earthboy: home of the Pirates
    [13:18] SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    [13:18] Dash Earthboy: :)
    [13:18] Fefonz Quan: Ah, now i get it - i was wondering what the 36C was aiming at :)
    [13:19] SophiaSharon Larnia: i'm sequestered in my little room with AC and feeling guilty about using the electricity
    [13:19] Dash Earthboy: Aggers likes us to talk temps in C
    [13:19] Wol Euler: :)
    [13:19] Fefonz Quan agree with Aggers
    [13:19] Wol Euler: hello ara
    [13:19] Dash Earthboy: hey arabella
    [13:19] SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Arabella
    [13:19] Fefonz Quan: Hi Arabella
    [13:20] arabella Ella: Hiya!
    [13:20] Fefonz Quan: Loooong time no see
    [13:20] arabella Ella: Yes Fef how are you havent seen you in years :)
    [13:20] Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Ara!
    [13:20] arabella Ella: and Brucie is here too cool how r u?
    [13:21] arabella Ella: and Blubbie!
    [13:21] Bruce Mowbray: still quite weak and wobbly, but getting better - and ty for asking.
    [13:21] arabella Ella: really lovely to see you back with us Bruce!
    [13:21] arabella Ella: wish you a speedy recovery!
    [13:21] Dash Earthboy: Bruce has Blub tried playing with the others in the fountain?
    [13:22] Bruce Mowbray: It is wonderful to be back -- even though I might not last much more than half an hour so so. . . we'll see.
    [13:22] Bruce Mowbray: No, Blub is a homeboy today.
    [13:22] Fefonz Quan: I'm great Ara, tired but content most of the time
    [13:22] arabella Ella: yes i understand Bruce, we sometimes need to pace ourselves a bit more than we think we should :0
    [13:22] arabella Ella smiles @ Fef
    [13:22] Fefonz Quan: I thought lub got bigger sine last time i saw him
    [13:23] SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    [13:23] Fefonz Quan: blub*
    [13:23] Fefonz Quan: since*
    [13:23] Bruce Mowbray: really?
    [13:23] arabella Ella whispers - don't tell Bruce but we sometimes give Blub a bit of extra food ... but Bruce would get angry if he knew so shhh!
    [13:23] Fefonz Quan: Or maybe I just sit closer to you Bruce :)
    [13:24] Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    [13:25] Fefonz Quan: Am i right saying the RL retreat got reduced to once a year?
    [13:25] Fefonz Quan: retreats*
    [13:26] arabella Ella: yes Fef
    [13:26] Fefonz Quan: feels like too few to me, but it's not that i have much to say about it
    [13:27] Bruce Mowbray: wow -- then no retreat in Seattle?
    [13:27] arabella Ella: I dunno Bruce
    [13:27] Wol Euler: that will go ahead
    [13:27] Wol Euler: it's still on the wiki
    [13:27] arabella Ella: I think they are leaving it up to locals to organise if they wish but that would be separate and over and above
    [13:27] Wol Euler: but nothing for 2012 yet
    [13:27] Bruce Mowbray: I'm getting excited about the Halifax retreat in July. I hope we can can a couple more folks to come. We now have six, as I understand it.
    [13:28] arabella Ella: I think it may be Zen in Belfast for 2012
    [13:28] Wol Euler: more would be merrier
    [13:28] Wol Euler: I'm glad you're going, bruce
    [13:28] SophiaSharon Larnia: :) Bruce, I do hope you'll have recovered all of your strength by then
    [13:28] Dash Earthboy: hey mila
    [13:28] SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Mila
    [13:28] Wol Euler: hello mila
    [13:28] Fefonz Quan: hello Mila
    [13:29] Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Mila!
    [13:29] milakel Resident: ha! bruce! :)
    [13:29] milakel Resident: so nice to see you :)
    [13:29] arabella Ella: Hiya Mila!
    [13:29] Bruce Mowbray: TY!
    [13:29] milakel Resident: welcome back to sl :)
    [13:30] Bruce Mowbray: ty, indeed. great to be back.
    [13:32] Dash Earthboy: good weather for iced coffee
    [13:32] arabella Ella: we are all so happy to see you back here Bruce honestly!
    [13:32] Dash Earthboy: hi morgano
    [13:32] milakel Resident: blub missed you, bruce :)
    [13:33] Wol Euler: hello morgano, haven't seen you here for quite a while
    [13:33] SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Morgano
    [13:33] Fefonz Quan: hi Morgano
    [13:34] arabella Ella: Hiya Morgano
    [13:34] Dash Earthboy: finally...some repetition
    [13:35] Dash Earthboy: :)
    [13:35] milakel Resident: poof
    [13:35] Dash Earthboy: and there goes the repetition :(
    [13:35] arabella Ella: repetition?
    [13:35] Wol Euler: repetition!
    [13:35] Fefonz Quan: I take it she's been here before, haven't she?
    [13:35] Bruce Mowbray: ;)
    [13:35] Wol Euler: yep
    [13:36] Dash Earthboy: yes, each of us has an ID beginning with a different letter of the alphabet
    [13:36] Wol Euler: aaaaah
    [13:36] Dash Earthboy: Morgano finally repeated the M we got in Mila
    [13:36] arabella Ella: ah!
    [13:36] milakel Resident: how do you feel, bruce? not tiring to be in sl?
    [13:37] SophiaSharon Larnia: you know Dash, I had never thought to notice that ;p
    [13:37] Dash Earthboy: i'm just sayin
    [13:37] arabella Ella: interesting!
    [13:37] SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    [13:38] Dash Earthboy: we each practice paying atttention in different ways :)
    [13:39] SophiaSharon Larnia: I agree :D
    [13:39] arabella Ella: yes but it is amazing we all practice symmetry when we sit as someone here had observed way back :)
    [13:40] Wol Euler smiles.
    [13:40] Wol Euler: not always, but often
    [13:40] Dash Earthboy: :)
    [13:40] arabella Ella: most times
    [13:40] arabella Ella: and definitely today
    [13:40] Dash Earthboy: wb Morgano
    [13:40] arabella Ella: wb Morgano!
    [13:42] morgano Bravin: Hi Everyone
    [13:42] Dash Earthboy: :)
    [13:43] Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Morgano!
    [13:43] SophiaSharon Larnia: bye everyone, take care :)
    [13:43] Dash Earthboy: the birds here at PaB are so much quieter than those outside my window at 5:30 AM
    [13:43] Wol Euler: bye sharon
    [13:43] morgano Bravin: hi,,bye sophia
    [13:43] SophiaSharon Larnia: off into the heat :)
    [13:43] Dash Earthboy: so soon Shar?
    [13:43] Wol Euler: take care
    [13:43] arabella Ella: bye SSL
    [13:43] Dash Earthboy: okay, b-bye
    [13:44] Fefonz Quan: Bye Sharon
    [13:44] Dash Earthboy: so much for symmetry?
    [13:44] Wol Euler: challenging :)
    [13:44] Wol Euler: mila could restore it easily
    [13:45] Wol Euler: or fef
    [13:45] arabella Ella: Symmetry ... dash or morgano maybe?
    [13:45] Wol Euler: or dash
    [13:45] Wol Euler: or me
    [13:45] Wol Euler: lots of possibilities
    [13:45] Dash Earthboy: a whole world of possibilities
    [13:46] Wol Euler: (hadn't seen morgano, recalculating the possibilities)
    [13:46] morgano Bravin: Bruce, I heard you had been ill,,,I hope you are well now
    [13:46] Bruce Mowbray: I am still weak and wobby, but feeling a bit better each day. Thanks you.
    [13:46] morgano Bravin: great
    [13:47] morgano Bravin: :)
    [13:48] arabella Ella: Ara is out of control!
    [13:48] Bruce Mowbray: with regard to "possibilities," I love Freeman Dyson's book title, INFINITE IN ALL DIRECTIONS ...
    [13:48] Wol Euler: hmm, don't know that.
    [13:48] Bruce Mowbray: a marvelous read -- and it devotes a few pages to Pema, too!
    [13:48] arabella Ella: got lots of lag though
    [13:48] arabella Ella: oh ... stopped typing now ... dont know why
    [13:48] Dash Earthboy: our Pema?
    [13:48] Bruce Mowbray: I'm going to mention in in this week's TIME MAGIC report.
    [13:49] Bruce Mowbray: yes, our own Pema..... aka Piet Hut -- and the Institute for Advanced Studies.
    [13:49] Wol Euler: wow
    [13:49] arabella Ella: what is Time Magic Bruce?
    [13:49] Bruce Mowbray: Did you realize that Piet is the person behind the Nemesis Star theory?
    [13:50] Dash Earthboy: listens
    [13:50] Wol Euler googles NEmesis Star theory
    [13:50] Bruce Mowbray: Friday mornings - right here - at 6 a.m slt.
    [13:50] arabella Ella: pardon my ignorance!
    [13:51] Dash Earthboy: asking questions is a good way to learn ara!
    [13:51] arabella Ella: :)
    [13:51] Bruce Mowbray: http://www.google.com/search?q=Nemes...ient=firefox-a
    [13:51] milakel Resident: he did calculations with richard muller (really awesome physics professor)
    [13:51] arabella Ella: cool!
    [13:51] Bruce Mowbray: yes, Muller and one other chap.
    [13:51] Bruce Mowbray: in the 80's
    [13:52] milakel Resident: i forgot the details, but i think it the idea was scrapped :)
    [13:52] Bruce Mowbray: Folks, I need to get back to bed now. Thanks for the discussion.
    [13:52] milakel Resident: thank you for coming, bruce! :)
    [13:52] Bruce Mowbray: May you all be well and happy today.
    [13:53] Wol Euler: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemesis...etical_star%29
    [13:53] morgano Bravin: was that the one about sending out a space craft to intercept a meateorite or whatever?
    [13:53] Dash Earthboy: best to you Bruce
    [13:53] arabella Ella: Really lovely to see Bruce and Blubbie thanks for being here!
    [13:53] Bruce Mowbray: bye for now.
    [13:53] Wol Euler: bye bruce, take care of yourself
    [13:53] morgano Bravin: bye bruce
    [13:53] milakel Resident: and may all your christmases be white :)
    [13:53] Fefonz Quan: take care bruce, and welcome back!
    [13:53] Bruce Mowbray: thank you!
    [13:53] Wol Euler: heheh
    [13:53] Dash Earthboy: okay we got symmetry again
    [13:54] milakel Resident: you'd like to say something in voice, morgano?
    [13:54] morgano Bravin: I would prefer not
    [13:54] Wol Euler: good :)
    [13:54] morgano Bravin: :)
    [13:55] morgano Bravin: :)
    [13:55] Dash Earthboy: wow how time has flown!
    [13:56] Dash Earthboy: speak now or...
    [13:56] morgano Bravin: or?
    [13:56] morgano Bravin: he he
    [13:56] Dash Earthboy: :)
    [13:56] morgano Bravin: I dont understand all the uttons to talk
    [13:56] morgano Bravin: buttons
    [13:57] milakel Resident: fef, how are your fatherly deeds going? :)
    [13:57] Wol Euler: which viewer are you using, morgano?
    [13:57] arabella Ella: u just have to press the right buttons morgano
    [13:57] morgano Bravin: some ancient one
    [13:57] milakel Resident: use v2 :)
    [13:57] morgano Bravin: from the beginning of sl time
    [13:57] milakel Resident: there's a big speak button :)
    [13:58] arabella Ella: where is that Mila?
    [13:58] Fefonz Quan: not bad milakel, 5I see the word has spread around :)
    [13:58] milakel Resident: :)
    [13:58] milakel Resident: ara, v2 client
    [13:58] Dash Earthboy: :)
    [13:58] arabella Ella: oh i use phoenix
    [13:58] morgano Bravin: if my sound is on and disturbing people I will leav
    [13:59] morgano Bravin: I am sorry
    [13:59] Wol Euler: no need to leave, just turn off your microphone
    [13:59] Wol Euler: there's probably a physical button on the physical microphone :)
    [13:59] morgano Bravin: it is off
    [14:00] morgano Bravin: perhaps I must leave,,its noisey here in rl
    [14:01] Wol Euler: hello druth
    [14:01] Wol Euler: that was nicely timed :)
    [14:01] druth Vlodovic: oh?
    [14:01] arabella Ella: Hiya druth!
    [14:01] milakel Resident: :)
    [14:01] druth Vlodovic: I was early by 30 seconds or so :)
    [14:01] Dash Earthboy: hey druth
    [14:02] druth Vlodovic: hi guys
    [14:02] arabella Ella: nice symmetry too altho i must go soon!
    [14:02] Dash Earthboy: :)
    [14:02] Dash Earthboy: i'll cooperate
    [14:03] arabella Ella: i'd better be off
    [14:04] arabella Ella: bye everyone and good night to those in my time zone!
    [14:04] Wol Euler: goodnight, ara, take care
    [14:04] arabella Ella: lovely seeing u Fef!
    [14:04] Dash Earthboy: bye ara
    [14:04] Wol Euler: bye fef, regards to the family

    [14:04] druth Vlodovic: bye ara
    [14:04] druth Vlodovic: and fef
    [14:04] Dash Earthboy: bye Fef gtsy
    [14:04] Fefonz Quan: you too Ara, take care\
    [14:04] Dash Earthboy: on
    [14:04] Wol Euler: dasher, on vixen
    [14:04] Fefonz Quan: _/!\_
    [14:04] Dash Earthboy: off
    [14:05] Wol Euler: heheheh
    [14:05] druth Vlodovic: cya dash
    [14:05] Dash Earthboy: g'nite y'all :)
    [14:05] Wol Euler: 'night dash, take care
    [14:05] Wol Euler: don't overheat
    [14:06] druth Vlodovic: our half of the circle seems to have been too intimidating
    [14:06] Wol Euler: luck of the draw
    [14:06] druth Vlodovic: what was the topic today?
    [14:07] Wol Euler ponders. Was there one?
    [14:07] Wol Euler: bruce's health; symmetry; birds; astronomy
    [14:08] druth Vlodovic: what happened to him anyway?
    [14:08] Wol Euler: he hasn'T offered details, and we haven't asked.
    [14:08] druth Vlodovic: 'k, just curious
    [14:08] druth Vlodovic: it sounded pretty serious
    [14:08] Wol Euler: it#s known that he took ill on returning from holiday, and spent nearly 2 weeks in hospital
    [14:08] Wol Euler nods.
    [14:09] Wol Euler: he's had some hearing loss, and is "weak and wobbly"
    [14:09] druth Vlodovic: my best wishes to him
    [14:12] Wol Euler: my dears, I am going to bed. Take care, be happy and productive
    [14:12] druth Vlodovic: have fun wol
    [14:12] druth Vlodovic: I guyess I'll head too
    [14:12] druth Vlodovic: what are milakel's plans?
    [14:13] druth Vlodovic: :)
    [14:13] druth Vlodovic: have fun
