    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Brucie :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Howdy do, aggers.
    Agatha Macbeth: How are you today?
    Bruce Mowbray: Pretty good. I just returned from a run into town. . . All my parts seems to be working OK.
    Bruce Mowbray: How are you doing?
    Agatha Macbeth: I'm fine thanks
    Bruce Mowbray: Is it cold over there, as we hear it is?
    Agatha Macbeth: Bit grey, slow rezzing
    Bruce Mowbray: You look great to me, ags.
    Agatha Macbeth: It is, but not as cold today
    Bruce Mowbray: I really feel for the folks in eastern Europe and Italy.
    Agatha Macbeth: It was actually trying to rain earlier
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, you don't expect it in Italy
    Bruce Mowbray: that's for sure -- or in Northern Africa, either.
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed
    Agatha Macbeth: except in the mountains of course
    Bruce Mowbray: oh yeah.
    Bruce Mowbray: Are you going to particvipate in the Art as Being project this month?
    Agatha Macbeth: I always used to think the tops of mountains should be warmer, cos they are nearer the sun ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Er...dunno
    Bruce Mowbray: Well, of course. . . excellent logic there, ags.
    Agatha Macbeth: time and imagination will dictate
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Agatha, hi Bruce
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Sharon :)
    Bruce Mowbray: I'm feeling a bit crimped by only one photo and no scripts.
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Sophia!
    Agatha Macbeth: nice to see you as always
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nice to see you also
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Agatha Macbeth: what's the theme again?
    Bruce Mowbray: Happiness"
    Agatha Macbeth: OMG
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: I wonder if I'm qualified then [grin]
    Bruce Mowbray: I made a rotating sphere with a photo as its texture. . . . but even that is not permitted.
    Bruce Mowbray: (rotating script).
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm
    Agatha Macbeth: seems somewhat limiting
    Bruce Mowbray: yep. But I'll figure something out.
    Agatha Macbeth: I must fish the email out and take a look
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Sam

    SophiaSharon Larnia: ~waves back~
    Agatha Macbeth: I do like that Av
    Bruce Mowbray: ♥
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i wish I could see mesh ;)
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh-
    Agatha Macbeth: can you not see it?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no, the mesh viewers lagged me too severely to stay on them
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh dear
    Agatha Macbeth: I hadn't heard about that problem
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hmm
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll nose around a faq or two
    SophiaSharon Larnia: k thx
    Agatha Macbeth: So you find V1 less laggy?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Korel, HI Wol
    Wol Euler: gah, the lag, it is strong tonight
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Kori.
    Wol Euler: evening all
    Agatha Macbeth: Strong with the lag are you young Wol ♥
    SophiaSharon Larnia: im back on phoenix 1.5.2, and maginally
    Korel Laloix: Viewer one is sooo much better than anything now.
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Wol. Korel :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Osiyo K
    SophiaSharon Larnia: viewer 3 or 1 ?
    oO0Oo Resident: New version of Firestorm looks good.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, that's what I'm on
    Wol Euler: so does sam :)
    Korel Laloix: The origional SL viewer si the best one so far in terms of lag and stability.
    Agatha Macbeth: (it says here)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh well, mesh balls it is until i find time to play around :)
    Bruce Mowbray: I'm with the original SL viewer and really like it.
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Wol.
    Korel Laloix: And it does not crassh all the time.
    Agatha Macbeth: Guess it all comes down to what one is comfortable with
    Korel Laloix: No, not at all.
    Agatha Macbeth: People look for different things from viewers
    Korel Laloix: It is a function of perforaance.
    Korel Laloix: Low crash rate, low lag, etc.
    Agatha Macbeth: I think a lot of builders like something called Singularity
    Korel Laloix: Just not with all the new features.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Ewan
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Ewan.
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Ewan :)
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Folks...:)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Ewan
    Wol Euler: I want a viewer that gets out of my way. the "official" v2 and v3 viewers are like a huge dog in a tiny apartment, slobbering all over your shoes and knocking things off the shelves with its tail
    Agatha Macbeth: Like Boxy :p
    Korel Laloix: You are bing way too kind Wol.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yea, apt description heh
    Wol Euler smiles.
    oO0Oo Resident: hahahaha.. what a metaphor.. the saint Bernhard series of viewers
    Wol Euler: brb
    Agatha Macbeth smiles @ Brucie's laggy laugh
    Korel Laloix: The number of newbies that I have rescued from viwer two is rediculous.
    Korel Laloix: Lots area bout to quit, then I show them viewer one and the stay.
    Ewan Bonham: I think that Firestorm can be tailored to be made a lot easier..
    Ewan Bonham: That might be a compromise..:)
    Wol Euler: hello ewan
    Agatha Macbeth: Trouble is if people start on the LL viewer they don't know any different
    Wol Euler nods.
    Korel Laloix: That is true.
    Korel Laloix: But unfortunatly, that is what is given to them when they sign up.
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed
    Wol Euler: I miss mentoring on the newborn areas :(
    Agatha Macbeth: That's where having mentors always came in handy
    Wol Euler: that was fun, and good karma
    Agatha Macbeth: snap
    Wol Euler: yep
    Bruce Mowbray: Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I only know the SL viewer and it's always been just fine for me.
    Agatha Macbeth: If it works, why fix it...
    Bruce Mowbray: I found the biggest improvement to viewing came when I upgraded my graphics card.
    Bruce Mowbray: Amazing difference, then.
    Wol Euler: definitely :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thats what Im going to have to do, ive tried everyhting else
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, Sophia -- when you first spoke about the "mesh," I immediately thought of your graphics card.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes
    Bruce Mowbray: Everything appears almost instantly now.
    Agatha Macbeth: So you just see 0 as a ball then Shaz?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: tried all tpv's, setting etc :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Even when folks say that they appear grey to themselves, I can see them fully in color.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no, just the skirt :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Agatha Macbeth: She looks so cute too
    Wol Euler: she does :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i can see that :D

    Agatha Macbeth: Strangely it seemed to get more visitors in the air than down on the ground
    Mickorod Renard: sorry, baby woke up
    Agatha Macbeth: Goo goo
    Storm Nordwind: There was a natural cycle of interest and energy for many of the workshops Agatha. Don't think it was the location or the fact it had 4x as many prims in it!

    Mickorod Renard: was Pema a founder of Kira Storm?
    Agatha Macbeth: Four times, wow
    Storm Nordwind: Yes he was Mick
