    [00:59] Wol Euler: hello rhi
    [00:59] Rhiannon Dragoone: Hi Wol
    [01:00] Rhiannon Dragoone: Is that latex you're wearing?
    [01:00] Wol Euler: yep
    [01:00] Wol Euler grins.
    [01:01] Rhiannon Dragoone: Very naugghty. lol
    [01:01] Wol Euler: I would normally offer a LM but in your case ... :)
    [01:01] Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, i guess so. lol
    [01:01] Wol Euler smiles.
    [01:02] Wol Euler: hmmm, I have a nagging feeling that there is something I've forgotten to do.
    [01:02] Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, don't you hate that?
    [01:02] Wol Euler: yeah
    [01:02] Wol Euler: damned feelings never give useful details, do they?
    [01:03] Wol Euler: like children playing guessing games at you
    [01:03] Rhiannon Dragoone: I'm not sure I understand; maybe 'cause I'm tired
    [01:04] Wol Euler: just an analogy to the way little kids will make you guess what they mean rather than saying it
    [01:04] Rhiannon Dragoone: Only tantalising suggestions
    [01:04] Wol Euler: right
    [01:05] Wol Euler: how did Pamala's talk go last week?
    [01:05] Rhiannon Dragoone: Oh, it was great; had to raise the sim limit and have an encore
    [01:06] Wol Euler smiles.
    [01:06] Rhiannon Dragoone: And I didn't have sound for the first third of the lecture the first time she held it at my campsite; it made more sense this time; I had sound throughout
    [01:06] Wol Euler: the DSL might have helped there :)
    [01:06] Rhiannon Dragoone: I think it did; sound seems very bandwidth intensive; I guess on top of graphics, anyway
    [01:07] Rhiannon Dragoone: And you noticed--i'm walking better these days
    [01:07] Wol Euler: mmhmm
    [01:07] Wol Euler: walking at all :)
    [01:10] Rhiannon Dragoone: I always found latex to ber hot and uncomfortable irl; that's one neat thing about sl; your clothes are always comfortable, even if they sometimes don't fit and need adjustment.
    [01:10] Wol Euler: indeed :)
    [01:11] Rhiannon Dragoone: A lot of adjustment sometimes, which is another reason I don't wear them; saves time
    [01:11] Wol Euler: always the right size, except for the prims
    [01:11] Rhiannon Dragoone: lol
    [01:11] Wol Euler: yeah, I have to tweak prims in every outfit that has them
    [01:11] Rhiannon Dragoone: Or you have big, embarassing, gaping holes
    [01:11] Wol Euler: I think of that as a secondary cost of shopping :)
    [01:11] Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah; well, you sometimes have to hem dresses irl.
    [01:11] Wol Euler: also true :)
    [01:12] Rhiannon Dragoone: And that's a big pain in tghe but
    [01:12] Rhiannon Dragoone: *butt
    [01:12] Wol Euler: well, the holes are embarrassing if you notice them :) but I infer from looking around that some people don't notice
    [01:13] Wol Euler: I can't believe that they don't care, not literally
    [01:13] Wol Euler: people who really don't care just continue to wear their day one slider clothes
    [01:13] Wol Euler: so I think it's about not seeing, not realizing
    [01:14] Rhiannon Dragoone: It's about whether you're an immersive too; immrsives care about how they look, as this is where they live, when they are here
    [01:14] Rhiannon Dragoone: And girls care more than guys
    [01:14] Wol Euler: yes but: many of them have been RL female
    [01:15] Rhiannon Dragoone: And philosophers here are like philosophers irl, the seedy, tweedy or frumpy, dumpy look
    [01:15] Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, we import are values; and you can tell if someone is a guy or a girl sometimes but how much they care about their apperance.
    [01:16] Wol Euler: though not always :)
    [01:16] Wol Euler: I know plenty of RL women who wear slider clothes and hair (I'Ve met them in RL)
    [01:17] Rhiannon Dragoone: nothing is always, and if you don't care about rl gender, it doesn't matter.
    [01:17] Rhiannon Dragoone: What do you mean by slider clothes?
    [01:17] Wol Euler: and quite a few RL males who play women, who dress exquisitely
    [01:17] Wol Euler: non-prim clothes
    [01:17] Rhiannon Dragoone: oh
    [01:17] Wol Euler: the stuff newbies wear on day one
    [01:17] Rhiannon Dragoone: like noob stuff?
    [01:17] Wol Euler: or used to, the new newbie outfits are much better
    [01:17] Rhiannon Dragoone: Yeah, they are, but still not as good as primm clothes
    [01:18] Wol Euler: I think immersivity is probably the clue, yes, and also what you think SL is
    [01:18] Wol Euler: for those who think it is IM wiht pictures, I can see that the picture might be meaningless
    [01:18] Wol Euler: or perhaps they are gamers, used to avatars whose appearance is dictated by your standing in the game's progression
    [01:18] Rhiannon Dragoone: well, yeah, that's true; but immersivity, gender, and vanity all blend in, I'd say
    [01:19] Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, and that's in a sense true here, as the older you get, the more care you take about your appearance; well, compared to newbies
    [01:19] Wol Euler: World of Warcraft allows only tiny modifications to your avatar's appearance, for dxample
    [01:19] Wol Euler: yes, truie
    [01:20] Wol Euler: so people in WoW learn not to care much about how people actually *look* but only to see what their appearance says about their status
    [01:20] Wol Euler: like you can tell a top-level pro player from too far away to read their nametag
    [01:20] Rhiannon Dragoone: I'd say here, a lot of people visually cue to you; like I know I do.
    [01:20] Wol Euler nods.
    [01:20] Rhiannon Dragoone: And those who think avatars represent the person--are the person in sl, their apperance becomes important
    [01:21] Wol Euler: yes, dfinitely.
    [01:21] Wol Euler: if you see someone who's taken care with their appearance,you have found an immersivist :)
    [01:21] Rhiannon Dragoone: And not to be repeititous, but when you're nude here, you're really nude for a lot of people
    [01:22] Wol Euler nods.
    [01:22] Rhiannon Dragoone: Yeah, a lot of people assume I'm one from my appearance; since I take a lot of care with it
    [01:22] Rhiannon Dragoone: And I used to be; still am in some respects
    [01:22] Wol Euler: what has changed?
    [01:22] Rhiannon Dragoone: I do think yu can be a mixture of types, and Pam even agrees
    [01:23] Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, a couple of things; being banned from a community I worked to build up, but also when Rosalyn had her stroke, suddenly rl beccame very important, so I tend to come to sl with specific goals now, and achieve them.
    [01:23] Rhiannon Dragoone: Both made me augmentistic.
    [01:23] Wol Euler nods.
    [01:23] Wol Euler: how is rosalyn, btw?
    [01:24] Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, she's doing ok today, but sometimes it seems she turns for the worst; it's still a day by day thing
    [01:24] Wol Euler sighs and nods
    [01:24] Wol Euler: I wish her well, and you too. It can't be easy for you
    [01:24] Wol Euler: *either of you
    [01:24] Wol Euler: ((btw should I remove her name from the published log?))
    [01:24] Rhiannon Dragoone: No, it isn't, but then it's like Camus' The Plague; sometimes, you are here to cope with illness
    [01:25] Rhiannon Dragoone: (no, as that's a pseudonym, like Rhiannon)
    [01:25] Wol Euler: good :) just checking :)
    [01:26] Wol Euler: "you do what you have to do", as my mother says
    [01:26] Rhiannon Dragoone: Oh, I think another giveaway about being immersive, and being female is prim feet. If you can stand being barefoot with linden feet, then you are definitely *not* an immersive and probably not female. lol At least I can't see any real woman being barefoot with linden feet, unless they're very poor.
    [01:27] Wol Euler: yes but :)
    [01:27] Wol Euler: I dislike them because the skin tone is always different to, and worse than, the rest of my skin
    [01:27] Rhiannon Dragoone: I know; hasty generalization; it takes all types
    [01:27] Wol Euler: but you are right, I wear closed shoes
    [01:27] Rhiannon Dragoone: yes, that's why I wear shoes
    [01:27] Wol Euler smiles.
    [01:27] Rhiannon Dragoone: It's not just that it makes me nude, rather than naked
    [01:28] Wol Euler: yes! an important distinction
    [01:28] Wol Euler: I found the same with tattoos actually, to my great surprise
    [01:28] Rhiannon Dragoone: Extremely
    [01:28] Wol Euler: wearing a tattoo in SL felt like being a little less naked
    [01:28] Rhiannon Dragoone: Same irl too. You feel decorated.
    [01:29] Wol Euler nods.
    [01:29] Wol Euler: hello reduction
    [01:29] Rhiannon Dragoone: Hi Red
    [01:29] Reduction Haiku: hi
    [01:30] Rhiannon Dragoone: We're talking about appearance in rl and sl
    [01:30] Wol Euler: have you had an introduction to the group yet?
    [01:30] Wol Euler: (I know you've been here before, but when I saw you, you didn't speak at all)
    [01:31] Reduction Haiku: nie to meet you
    [01:31] Reduction Haiku: nice
    [01:31] Wol Euler: likewise
    [01:31] Wol Euler: have you had an introduction to the group yet?
    [01:31] Reduction Haiku: no
    [01:31] Wol Euler: okay :)
    [01:31] Rhiannon Dragoone: You look like you're staring at my rl boobs, Red, the way you're gazing at the computer screen
    [01:31] Wol Euler: this is a meeting of a meditation and discussoin group called Play as Being
    [01:32] Reduction Haiku: ur rl boobs?
    [01:32] Wol Euler: we gather 4x daily to talk about our practices and matters that arise, and sometimes just to chat
    [01:32] Rhiannon Dragoone: nvm; listen to Wol
    [01:32] Reduction Haiku: ok
    [01:32] Wol Euler: that notecard tells the basics about us, including our website http://wiki.playasbeing.org/
    [01:33] Wol Euler: we record these sessions and post them on the wiki, so that absent members can read what was said
    [01:33] Wol Euler: may we have your permissoin to include your SL name and your comments in the published log?
    [01:33] Reduction Haiku: yes
    [01:33] Wol Euler: ty
    [01:33] Rhiannon Dragoone: Do you meet in the mornings now, Wol? I had this as my last location and ran into some people when I rezzed.
    [01:33] Wol Euler: 1am 7am 1pm 7pm SL every day
    [01:34] Wol Euler: I'm usually here at 1pm, and at the 1ams on Fri Sat Sun
    [01:34] Rhiannon Dragoone: ok, 7am too; maybe I forgot that, as I don't normally get up that early
    [01:35] Wol Euler: the 7s are tricky for me, 7am is middle of hte working afternoon and 7pm is middle of hte night
    [01:35] Wol Euler: there are also a few meetings inbetwen those times, special sessions
    [01:35] Rhiannon Dragoone: yep; like the 1's are tricky for me; 1am is the middle of the night, and 1pm is the middle of the working afternoon
    [01:35] Wol Euler: and yet I often see you at 1am :)
    [01:36] Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, depends. On weekends, I often see if I can make it to unwind before bed.
    [01:36] Wol Euler nods.
    [01:36] Reduction Haiku: uh
    [01:36] Reduction Haiku: how do I get a group invite?
    [01:36] Wol Euler: just a mo
    [01:37] Rhiannon Dragoone: That's why I made the joke about Red's avatar looking at my boobs through the computer, as I'm, eh, hem, wearing my nitie atm
    [01:37] Rhiannon Dragoone: And it doesn't cover much
    [01:37] Reduction Haiku: nm I got it
    [01:37] Wol Euler: good :)
    [01:38] Wol Euler: there are two groups, visitors and management; I'm only in management
    [01:38] Wol Euler: I should join the other too, so I can invite people ...
    [01:38] Reduction Haiku: mhm
    [01:38] Rhiannon Dragoone: Why can't management invite people?
    [01:39] Wol Euler: because it *is* a different groupp :)
    [01:39] Wol Euler: you can't invite people to a group that you are not a member of
    [01:39] Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, yeah; me bad
    [01:39] Wol Euler: I should add a link to the group to that info notecard
    [01:41] Rhiannon Dragoone: We were talking about avatar appearance and what that says about a person; what's your thoughts on that, Red?
    [01:42] Reduction Haiku: I think it says what a person wants it to mean
