*Wol Euler was guardian for this session.*

Korel Laloix: MIght be time for bed.

Korel Laloix: Bozho

Wol Euler: good morning, korel

Korel Laloix: Morning... smiles

Wol Euler: this round world and its timezones are a continual surprise to me

Wol Euler: I know how it works, but somehow ...

Korel Laloix: We have a lot of oversees clients, and that messes us up a lot.

Wol Euler nods.

Korel Laloix: But I do see the purpose.

Wol Euler: mmhmm, have to be awake when they are if you are going to be useful to them :)

Korel Laloix: Yes, but getting texts at 3 am on my personal phone from clients that are wonering why we are not in the office is annoying.

Wol Euler laughs.

Korel Laloix: Would really like o get some sleep, but just not feeling it.

Wol Euler: good morning, observerm

Korel Laloix: And can't get my brain to shut off either.

Wol Euler: :(

Wol Euler: I find hot chocolate and a really dull book do wonders for that :)

Korel Laloix: My new shrink is calling mmy sleep issues parasomnia vs insomnia.

--BELL--

Korel Laloix: Chocolate wakes me up... and I am out of almond milk anyway.

Korel Laloix: osiyo ob

Korel Laloix: Might just go for another run.

Korel Laloix: That might tired me down.

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: I hope you'll be able to sleep, korel

Korel Laloix: Me as well.

Wol Euler smiles.

Korel Laloix: Sort of normal for me really.

Korel Laloix: When big changes happenin my schedule or life, it takes a while for it to settle down.

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Wol Euler: morning, boxy

Alfred Kelberry: hi :)

Alfred Kelberry: oh my :)

Korel Laloix: osiyo

Alfred Kelberry: ms. wol :)

Alfred Kelberry: um, what is it today, woly? :)

Alfred Kelberry: fracture?

Wol Euler: saturday

Wol Euler: yep

Alfred Kelberry: aha :)

Alfred Kelberry: a "theme session"?

Wol Euler: no, just the usual fun

Alfred Kelberry: ah

Wol Euler: there may be themes to the music

Alfred Kelberry: kori :)

Korel Laloix: Heya

Korel Laloix: OK... going to go get dressed... so will either go run or go to bed.... lol

Alfred Kelberry: you be good

Wol Euler: hehehe

Korel Laloix: Take care all... Goonight.

Wol Euler: either way, goodnight, get some sleep :)

Korel Laloix: caio

Alfred Kelberry: wait, does it mean she just was naked here

Wol Euler: RL dressed

Alfred Kelberry: uh oh, ms. wol is in the mood :)

Alfred Kelberry: ok, what do i do? :)

Wol Euler: just trying to figure out how to crack this whip :)

Wol Euler: some people like that :)

Alfred Kelberry: i think you're doing a great job :)

Alfred Kelberry: no work today?

Wol Euler: nope

Alfred Kelberry: good

Wol Euler: hardly ever work on saturdays

Alfred Kelberry: whip day then

Alfred Kelberry: i missed the friday session. did you guys do anything special?

Wol Euler: not much

Wol Euler: the 1am or 1pm?

Alfred Kelberry: pm, i think

Wol Euler: some chat, some vuvuleza, a little onigokko, then it turned serious :)

Alfred Kelberry: whenever is mayhem happening

Wol Euler: irregularly

Alfred Kelberry: what kind of serious?

Alfred Kelberry: as in bad ass serious?

Wol Euler: intense "philosophical" discussions

Alfred Kelberry: ah

Alfred Kelberry: that

Wol Euler: people clearly pasting in paragraphs that they'd written somewhere else, long before

Alfred Kelberry: hmm

Wol Euler: (I'll edit this :)

Alfred Kelberry: (do not edit this)

Wol Euler: I got bored of that pretty quickly

Wol Euler: :-P

Wol Euler: so went shopping and dancing with Aggers

Alfred Kelberry: ah, neat

Alfred Kelberry: how is she?

Wol Euler: pretty well

Alfred Kelberry: ballsy as usual?

Wol Euler: ,mhmm

Alfred Kelberry: good :)

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: i feel like listening to the grease song

Wol Euler: eh?

Alfred Kelberry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ndqc7dN74e0

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Wol Euler: heh, I wonder whose voice that is Travolta is lip-syncing to

Alfred Kelberry: don't! just dance with me :)

Alfred Kelberry: haha

Alfred Kelberry: nice :)

Wol Euler: hehehehe

Alfred Kelberry: you always have a fitting dance up your sleeve :)

Alfred Kelberry: that was good :)

Wol Euler: nice idea, boxy

Wol Euler: that was fun

Alfred Kelberry: i think you hit me at least 5 times :)

Wol Euler: unintentional :) only once on purpose

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Alfred Kelberry: where is everyone?

Wol Euler: elsewhere :)

Wol Euler: sleeping probably

Wol Euler: heh, even Observerm has left

Alfred Kelberry: usually more folks at this time

Wol Euler: it varies

Wol Euler: I'm alone here often enough

Alfred Kelberry: aww

Alfred Kelberry: what are you up to today?

Wol Euler: the usual, some shopping then a few levels of WoW then fracture

Alfred Kelberry: gah, that wow :)

Wol Euler smiles.

Alfred Kelberry: is it still popular?

Wol Euler: I've no idea :)

Wol Euler: there seem to be people buying and playing it still

Alfred Kelberry: i'd play larry

Alfred Kelberry: that was a fun game

Wol Euler: leisure suit larry?

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: question: do you have any ideas on how to "kill hollywood" - in terms of competition?

Alfred Kelberry: and yes :)

Wol Euler: no, I don't

Wol Euler: sorry

Wol Euler: I think the way to kill Hollywood is in distribution

Alfred Kelberry: probably someone from the industry would know

Wol Euler: because the world already produces far more films than hollywood does

Alfred Kelberry: hmm

Wol Euler: what#s needed is to make them available

Wol Euler: which is where Hollywood succeeds so well

Alfred Kelberry: that would help too :)

Alfred Kelberry: 2 random kisses - rare :)

Wol Euler smiles.

Alfred Kelberry: did you read about the bird flu virus that the scientists altered to be more contagious?

Wol Euler: no

Wol Euler: what a strange idea

Alfred Kelberry: pretty scary

Alfred Kelberry: well, it's not really, cause the virus does mutate on its own, adapting to the environment. they just look ahead.

Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.

Alfred Kelberry: the scary part is how easy it was to achieve

Alfred Kelberry: imagine, the regular strain had a death rate of more than 50% - unheard of

Wol Euler: yeah, and that wasn't high enough for them

Alfred Kelberry: this new supervirus can be indeed deadly

Wol Euler: how much do you want to bet that this particular piece of research had military funding?

Alfred Kelberry: yea

Alfred Kelberry: although, the bio panel asked the scientists to keep the exact procedure a secret

Wol Euler: "of course the weaponized germs will stop at the border of [country we are at war with], they would never spread to other places."

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: that's rather interesting work, i imagine, to create procedures for handling and storage of such materials

Alfred Kelberry: a lot of variables have to be accounted for

Wol Euler nods.

Alfred Kelberry: akin to architect a high story building :)

Wol Euler: with the difference that the building won't cause a worldwide plague if the power goes off for a day

Wol Euler: usually

Alfred Kelberry: sometimes you wonder how this thing actually does not fall :)

Wol Euler: the playgoda?

Alfred Kelberry: rl buildings

Wol Euler: ah

Wol Euler: well, they do, often enough

Alfred Kelberry: insane amounts of force

Wol Euler: earthquakes, high winds, decay

Alfred Kelberry: yea

Wol Euler: but usually that is because they were badly made

Wol Euler: a strong enough force will bring down any building, obviously, but "normal" effects should never cause the devastation that is seen in e.g. China or the Middle East

Alfred Kelberry: or the standards were not sturdy enough?

Wol Euler: after their earthquakes

Wol Euler: either bad standards or (in the case of China) simply not enforced. Officials were bribed not to notice infringements

Wol Euler: I suspect that is the case in Lebanon and Haiti too

Alfred Kelberry: meh

Alfred Kelberry: i suppose they execute those types without much investigation

Wol Euler: I hope so, but frankly I doubt it

Wol Euler: once bribery becomes established, it consumes all honesty

Alfred Kelberry: true

Wol Euler: the corrupt officials would just bribe their jaolers or the judges

Alfred Kelberry: we should build something

Alfred Kelberry: how can we enhance the logger?

Wol Euler: many suggestions have been made

--BELL--

Wol Euler: the one I'd go for is to find a way to track more than 16 visitors

Wol Euler: reliably

Alfred Kelberry: sl limitation?

Wol Euler: yeah, it uses the LSL scanning function, wihc only returns <= 16 avatars

Alfred Kelberry: any way to do it without 2 scanners?

Wol Euler: given that a scanner only returns 16 avatars, the answer appears to be "no"

Alfred Kelberry: you can set the sensor cone

Alfred Kelberry: so they don't overlap

Wol Euler: we could try going back to the very first version, which just captured all chat on channel 0

Wol Euler: to be honest I don't remember the details of why that failed, but it did: continually ran into memory limits and crashed

Alfred Kelberry: eek

Wol Euler: that was before mono, so it might be better now

Alfred Kelberry: what was the problem with the channel 0?

Wol Euler: none at all :)

Wol Euler: we speak in channel 0

Wol Euler: channel 0 is what it wants to listen to

Alfred Kelberry: yes, i mean, why did you change it?

Wol Euler: because it kept crashing!

Alfred Kelberry: ah! thought you meant the 2 sensors

Wol Euler: we hoped that by splitting the functions between administration and capturing data, we could avoid crashess

Wol Euler: and that did work

Wol Euler: but there is only one administrator = one scanner

Wol Euler: the trouble with multiple scanners is that they have to talk to each other.

Wol Euler: because avatars move around

Alfred Kelberry: new rule: avs don't move - problem solved :)

Wol Euler: you don'T want scanner 2 starting a process to listen to Fred when scanner 1 has already noticed him, just because he moved seats

Wol Euler: :-P

Wol Euler: actually if you want to change something, put a "nag" function into the 15 minute bell

Wol Euler: let it give a 10 second (say) grace period after ringing, then after that everone who speaks should get a "shut up please" notice in IM

Alfred Kelberry: ha!

Alfred Kelberry: that's invasive

Wol Euler: oh, and forbidding people to change seats isn`t? :-P

Alfred Kelberry: that is a feature :)

Wol Euler makes a rude noise with her tongue.

Alfred Kelberry: well

Alfred Kelberry: we could auto-create pages maybe

Alfred Kelberry: do something on the server side

Wol Euler: ask Calvino, he allegedly started working on that

Alfred Kelberry: when?

Wol Euler: but I would ask whether you are solving a real issue, or just making an amusing project

Wol Euler: dunno, over a year ago

Alfred Kelberry: the latter :)

Alfred Kelberry: ah, i guess we can say that it's stalled :)

Wol Euler: probably

Alfred Kelberry: mmm

Alfred Kelberry: yes, please

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Alfred Kelberry: short hair fit well with the whip :)

Wol Euler: (trying to get a good photo of the movement)

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Alfred Kelberry: any luck?

Wol Euler: middling

Alfred Kelberry: ok, carry on :)

Wol Euler: do you use windows, boxy?

Wol Euler: or linux?

Alfred Kelberry: as well

Alfred Kelberry: both

Alfred Kelberry: even mac at times (meh)

Wol Euler: okay, so you know when you open a folder that contains images, Windows goes mad for a few minutes trying to create thumbnails for all of the images, just in case you *might* want to look at one of them?

Wol Euler: how do I stop that?

Alfred Kelberry: er, do not use explorer :)

Wol Euler: or, equally valid, how do I tell it to keep the goddamned thumbnails? why recreate them each time? windows is such stupid shit

Alfred Kelberry: or you can use the list view

Alfred Kelberry: i'm pretty sure it caches them

Wol Euler: but I am in the list view!

Wol Euler: it still spends ages doing *something* to all the images' icons

--BELL--

Wol Euler: and it does that aftresh every time I open that folder

Alfred Kelberry: it could be something else of the hundred things that it does

Alfred Kelberry: i use total commander on windows

Wol Euler: stupid

Alfred Kelberry: disable icons, etc

Wol Euler: aaaaaah

Alfred Kelberry: blazingly fast

Wol Euler: oh, in TC

Alfred Kelberry: basically "ls" :)

Wol Euler: heh, yes, I want tat

Alfred Kelberry: it has tabs and a bunch of other neat featuers to aid your file productivity

Alfred Kelberry: sadly nothing like it on linux - mere clone attempts

Alfred Kelberry: mucommander is nice though - but java :/

Alfred Kelberry: oh, and the text editor i use is "sublime text 2" - the best thing i've seen

Alfred Kelberry: i'm not hardcore enough to do vi full time :)

Wol Euler: yeah, I preferred vedit

Wol Euler: vi is too rude

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Wol Euler: meh, forecast for the next six days is: rain

Alfred Kelberry: neat

Wol Euler: :-P

Alfred Kelberry: it's good for eating out in a nice company and looking out at the drops on the windows :)

Wol Euler: heheheheheh

Wol Euler: but you have to get to that restaurant

--BELL--

Wol Euler: speaking of which, I have to get going, shopping waits for no woman

Wol Euler: not even one with a whip

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Alfred Kelberry: shopping comes to a woman with a whip :)

Alfred Kelberry: me watns a cake

Alfred Kelberry: *goes to get one*

Wol Euler: heheh

Wol Euler: bye boxy, enjoy the cake

Wol Euler: I hope it isn't a lie :)
