    Riddle Sideways: viral websites and loyalites

         GOC tried a topic, but Mila introduces something fun
    milakel Resident: btw, google translate on the web has a voice feature where you can listen to pronunciation. check out "pema" in japanese :)
    Riddle Sideways: oh ok
    milakel Resident: riddle, apple is an expert at nurturing a loyal userbase :)
    Storm Nordwind: and a disloyal non-user base too :)
    Riddle Sideways: neat
    milakel Resident: storm, that's just a common sense reaction! :)
    Storm Nordwind: hehe!
    milakel Resident: alfred in japanese sounds funny too
    Riddle Sideways: there were several refs to groups forming off the shared building and giving to each other bonds
    milakel Resident: dash-ing through the snow :)

    FcSeeker Resident: Hello Xirana and Dash
    Xirana Oximoxi: :) MIla
    FcSeeker Resident: GTSY

    Dash Earthboy: 's up?
    Riddle Sideways: we are typing our names (try Xirana) into google translate
    milakel Resident: :)
    Riddle Sideways: and listening to our japanese being read
    Dash Earthboy: :) sounds like fun!

         From here on the chat becomes just commentaries about things we are trying in different windows.

    milakel Resident: in spanish "xirana" sounds lovely :)
    FcSeeker Resident: <3
    Dash Earthboy: even in English :)
    Riddle Sideways: in japanese it has 13 sylibles
    milakel Resident: in english it's zeerana :/
    Xirana Oximoxi: in Japanese it' a complicated pronouncciation:)
    milakel Resident: haha
    milakel Resident: yea, quite :)
    Riddle Sideways: notes that everything sounds worse in english
    milakel Resident: haha
    Xirana Oximoxi: I like the English sound too:)
    milakel Resident: it just sounds "plain" as we're used to it
    Dash Earthboy: plain can be nice :)
    Riddle Sideways: plain is enough, but icing on it is special
    milakel Resident: of course any name sounds lovely in french
    Dash Earthboy: i'm kinda more utilitarian than fashionable
    Dash Earthboy: * contemplates icing on shrimp... thinks he'll stick with horseradish or plain :)
    FcSeeker Resident: it's so lovely to enjoy your presence but I got emergency call in my RL so I must go
    Riddle Sideways: dipping sauce is icing too
    milakel Resident: dash, one's plain is another's sophistication :)
    Storm Nordwind: Bye fc!
    FcSeeker Resident: takes a humble bow
    FcSeeker Resident: namaste
    Storm Nordwind: Namaste
    milakel Resident: fc :)
    Dash Earthboy: bye Fc
    Riddle Sideways: bye fc
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye FC:)

    Dash Earthboy: *one man's ceiling is another man's floor
    Riddle Sideways: dash in french is completely different
    Riddle Sideways: have heard that song
    Dash Earthboy: *one's trash is another's treasure :)

         translate words turns to translate customs
    milakel Resident: btw, japanese must have strong backs as they bow so much
    Dash Earthboy: does bowing make stronger backs?
    Riddle Sideways: good abs exercises
    Riddle Sideways: good humbling exercises
    Dash Earthboy: heheh
    Storm Nordwind: Courtesy is good exercise
    Dash Earthboy: :) @ Storm
    Riddle Sideways: politeness is too
    milakel Resident: i think for them is not more as a handshake for us
    Dash Earthboy: hey Yaku!
    milakel Resident: yaku-san :)

    Riddle Sideways: just got hung on exercise vs practice
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Yak

    Storm Nordwind: We see that, but their culture of respect and deference is rather hard to translate to direct Western equivalents
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Yaku:)
    Dash Earthboy: right on Storm
    Riddle Sideways: ok, google translate does NOT work on that concept
    Storm Nordwind: Welcome Meister Lethecus :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: may i get a note of the subject, sounds as if there is one :)
         Well... The GoC (/me) has forgotten how to make a notecard !!!
          For refreshers: open inventory and right-click->new note
           hmmm, but should the entire chat log be pasted in there (maybe not), but that would be fast.
            oh darn, better to just write a summary into the log. :))

    Riddle Sideways: well, we are playing with google translate to sound
    milakel Resident: storm, maybe it has something in common with midieval knights and honor and little kingdoms societies
    milakel Resident: *tries yaku in japanese*
    milakel Resident: kind of neat :)
    milakel Resident: almost like a native name
    Riddle Sideways: and other translations to cultures
    Dash Earthboy: wb Yaku
    Riddle Sideways: wb
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thx

    Dash Earthboy: whatever happened to the curtsy?
    Dash Earthboy: i see it in ballets sometimes
         Hold on this next section is heavily threaded.
         maybe the editor should reformat and put same threads together!   
            'might' help to know Yak's av has a paint brush in it's hand/typing AO

    Storm Nordwind: The SF author Robert Heinlein once wrote (in "Beyond this horizon") that an armed society is a polite society, a saying that was seized on by the US gun lobby. I'd rather have a bowing society achieve the same effect. But we're obviously agreed that a polite society is a desirable thing!
    Riddle Sideways: not seen curtsy in long time
    Storm Nordwind wonders what Yaku has been painting
    milakel Resident: btw, it's interesting to note how either male or female voices are used for various languages. i wonder if it's intentional or purely accidental.
    Dash Earthboy: somehow I don't remember the old wild west as a polite society...
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah, i´ve been to that angry god´s sim
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bleu suggested that
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it was part of one installation
    Storm Nordwind: Ah yes - I got called away and didn't finish the tour
    Xirana Oximoxi: ah...yes, interesting to note that MIla...
    Xirana Oximoxi: I wonder why the differences
    milakel Resident: *throws a paper plane*
    Dash Earthboy: *thinks of angry gods and the "Hungry Ghosts" movie*
    Storm Nordwind: Sadly, some languages can't be made more attractive even with a woman's voice! ;->
    Dash Earthboy: beauty is ...
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    milakel Resident: storm, like?
    Riddle Sideways: english?
    Storm Nordwind looks at the sky and says nothing
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    milakel Resident: i thought arabic translation would not be made female
    milakel Resident: which is not :)
    Riddle Sideways: ummm, the Dutch guy sounds pretty :)
    milakel Resident: maybe it' s about a certain perception that people have towards a language
    Dash Earthboy: we ought to be having a voice session to hear this :)
    milakel Resident: one would think having a female for french is natural
    milakel Resident: riddle, pema will like that :)
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    milakel Resident: pema in dutch though sounds... odd :)
    Riddle Sideways: are we bordering on generalizations here?
    milakel Resident: poking, riddle
    Storm Nordwind: Just stand at least 5 metres away from Pema if you ask him to say the name Van Gogh :)
    Riddle Sideways: :D
    milakel Resident: heh, why is that?
    milakel Resident: oh... guess i know :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I think being male or female changes in every language on different words
    Storm Nordwind: You know the sound that is the 'ch' in Scottish 'loch'? The Gogh has two of those sounds, but worse - and you may get sprayed!
    milakel Resident: hehe
    milakel Resident: thankfully, i wasn't visiting the van gogh museum
    Dash Earthboy: *remembers his verbal showers during conversations in russian * :)
    Riddle Sideways: am thinking this is a chat that is not about the real/factual/experience (by having the voices added)
    Riddle Sideways: but about our reactions
    Riddle Sideways: critisms
    Riddle Sideways: a second person chat
    milakel Resident: it always is
    Dash Earthboy: one might call it "hearsay"?

    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Riddle Sideways:  [sometimes the title comes in the last sentences]
    Dash Earthboy: glad the recording is back up for sessions here
    Dash Earthboy: anybody know when it got fixed?
    milakel Resident: 12 hours ago
    Dash Earthboy: ty
    Riddle Sideways: ty all the worked on it
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, ty... I also like to read the logs time to time...
    Yakuzza Lethecus starts to wonder if secondlife is skipping our thuesday tradition
    Dash Earthboy: peace to all...and better days too!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care dsh

    Riddle Sideways: oh that's right
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye Dash:)
    Riddle Sideways: no restart of the sim yet
    milakel Resident: what tradition?
    milakel Resident: ah...
    milakel Resident: storm had a quick nap :)
    Storm Nordwind is an old man ;)
    Riddle Sideways: let's all leave before we wake the server
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    milakel Resident: he thought no one would notice :)
    Riddle Sideways: naps are good things
    milakel Resident: yep
    milakel Resident: magic brush
    milakel Resident: *forgot the grass command*
    Riddle Sideways: btw - for a fun experiment compare the saved chat log to the server chat log
    Riddle Sideways: they do not sync for some time

             We stayed too long and the for the 10th time our region restarts during a session!!!!!

    Xirana Oximoxi: Yaku has powers

    Storm Nordwind imagines Yaku singing like Richie Havens
