*Wol Euler was guardian for this session.*

Wol Euler: hello sam

oO0Oo Resident: Morning Wol :)

Wol Euler: good evening to you :)

oO0Oo Resident: oh.. sorry.. thought it was morning in Germany.. or that you were in germany ...:)

Wol Euler: both correct :)

Wol Euler: but I thought you were in a US timezone

oO0Oo Resident: ah.. morning here too :)

Wol Euler: oh!

Wol Euler: that surprises me, I thought I'd seen your name at 7pm sessions

oO0Oo Resident: not mutually exclusive though?

Wol Euler: true :)

Wol Euler: see, this is what comes of making unchecked assumptions

oO0Oo Resident: I make a lot of assumptions.. many thousand a day I am sure

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: and most of the time they are harmless. "I assume that the 42 bus will stop here, as it did yesterday"

Wol Euler: our lives would be impossible if we had to read the timetable at the bus stop every morning

oO0Oo Resident: yes... so much of life is comprised of those sorts of expectations

Wol Euler nods.

oO0Oo Resident: well.. I wanted to see how the 1 AM SLT sessions are going.. as there was talk of dropping them.. Hadn't been to one for a while

Wol Euler: O.O

Wol Euler: man, I am out of touch.

Wol Euler: when was that discussed?

oO0Oo Resident: In the last few weeks... not concluded I would say.. and I should be able to point to a guardian meeting or an email or something.. I think maybe a gaurdian meeting and maybe some sessions it came up...

Wol Euler: :(

Wol Euler: heh, I should examine my attachment to this time slot :)

--BELL--

Wol Euler: because my inner grumpy old lady is saying "they ain't gonna take this away from me"

oO0Oo Resident: Well, i think the point was to ease any burdens on organisers or people concerned about slots being filled, so.. in a sense.. the slots you fill sort of take care of themselves.

Wol Euler: good :)

oO0Oo Resident: No sense of hard and fast rules.. just people discussing helpful possibilities with thoughtfulness in mind.. was my sense.. and as I say.. nothing was concluded.. so...

Wol Euler: good morning, aggers

oO0Oo Resident: Hi Aggers :)

Agatha Macbeth: Hello lovers af all things PaB-ish :)

Agatha Macbeth: How are we?

Wol Euler: cheerful

Wol Euler: and us?

Agatha Macbeth: Ooh

Agatha Macbeth: Just woke up

Agatha Macbeth: need breakfast

Agatha Macbeth: brb

oO0Oo Resident: Do you have tea in the morning Aggers?

Wol Euler: k

oO0Oo Resident: ah np

Wol Euler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoOjtNs9EOk

oO0Oo Resident: "more cowbell" :)

Wol Euler: really :D

Agatha Macbeth: back

Wol Euler: wb

Wol Euler: that was a fast breakfast

Agatha Macbeth: Coffe brewing, conrnflakes being munched

Wol Euler: mmmmm :)

oO0Oo Resident: wb

Agatha Macbeth: and Bieup looks fuzzy again :(

Agatha Macbeth: Hopefully I'll have W7 installed soon

Wol Euler nods.

Agatha Macbeth: maybe that will improve things

oO0Oo Resident: so many factors to fuzziness :)

Agatha Macbeth: Hmm

Wol Euler nods.

Agatha Macbeth: Well I stuck a new graphic board in, so can't improve that

Wol Euler: the internet connection is the most likely culprit then

Agatha Macbeth: XP is just so bloody old now

Wol Euler: yeah :)

Agatha Macbeth: No, that's ok

Agatha Macbeth: SL seems so be rather particular where hardware is concerned

Wol Euler nods.

Agatha Macbeth: Not sure how it looks on a mac

Wol Euler: it looked poor on a Mac Mini to be honest, the graphics weren't good enough for it

Agatha Macbeth nods

Wol Euler: except the high-end graphics crunchers, most Macs are sealed boxes, you can't upgrade the graphics

Agatha Macbeth: Yes, another reason most people shy away from them, plus the price

Agatha Macbeth: Wonder if Max has fixed her viewer probs yet?

Wol Euler: though to be honest, how many PC users do ever swap out their graphics cards?

Wol Euler: statistically insignificant, I would bet

Wol Euler: apart from gamer fanatics who do it every four months

Agatha Macbeth: Unfortunately I seem be doing it rather regularly recently :(

Wol Euler: and Aggerses :)

Agatha Macbeth: Hmm

--BELL--

Agatha Macbeth: Keeping up to date with the drivers is another pain

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: the mac fans would point to that as a benefit of the mac. It's automatic and free

Wol Euler: and because it's all made by apple, it is all compatible with itself

Wol Euler: PCs are fine until something goes wrong, then all you hear from manufacturers is "not my fault"

Wol Euler: "it's because of that [other component]"

Wol Euler: anyway :)

Agatha Macbeth: Hm, right

Agatha Macbeth: Is 0 still here? She seems quiet

oO0Oo Resident: Still here :)

Wol Euler smiles.

Agatha Macbeth smiles

Agatha Macbeth: snap

Wol Euler: blissing out on your presence

oO0Oo Resident: Just trying to dtermine the age of the hardware I am using here

Wol Euler: ah

Agatha Macbeth: Best of luck!

oO0Oo Resident: at least 7 years old .. probably a bit more

Wol Euler: wow!

Agatha Macbeth: ooer

Wol Euler: that's pretty impressive

Agatha Macbeth: Seems to run V2 ok tho

oO0Oo Resident: hard to see under the duct tape and baling wire though

Wol Euler: it must have been a top-of-the-line kick-ass system when it was new

oO0Oo Resident: I get by OK I guess

oO0Oo Resident: :)

Wol Euler: if it runs SL now

oO0Oo Resident: Happy enough :)

Agatha Macbeth: Yay

Wol Euler: good :)

Agatha Macbeth: Another definition of happiness

Agatha Macbeth: Coffee is wakin me up a bit now

oO0Oo Resident: I have some coffee gestures :)

Wol Euler: :)

Agatha Macbeth: I'll bet :p

oO0Oo Resident: I sifted through 400-500 gestures a while back :)

Wol Euler: :)

oO0Oo Resident: a big freebie pack

Agatha Macbeth: I keep saying one of the days I'll visit all the LMs in my inv and see what they are

Wol Euler nods.

oO0Oo Resident: only a very small percentage kept

oO0Oo Resident: me nods at Aggers

Agatha Macbeth: Bet half don't exist any more

Wol Euler: oh, at least half!

Wol Euler: start at the bottom (with the oldest ones), it'll go much faster as the dead ones won't even open

Wol Euler: you can delete them right away

Agatha Macbeth: Good advice dear, ty

Wol Euler: I still have some folders of freebie stuff people gave me when I was a newborn, many still unopened after all these years

oO0Oo Resident: sometimes they come back to life

Wol Euler: like zombies

Agatha Macbeth: The funniest one I ever had was when I TPed to waht I thought was a shop, and found myself in somebody's house with two people speaking german

Wol Euler: hehehehe

Agatha Macbeth: They seemed rather surprised to see me

Wol Euler: at least you didn't interrupt them in mid-shag

Agatha Macbeth: Thankfully

oO0Oo Resident: Did you ask where the schnitzel was kept?

Wol Euler: heheheheh

Agatha Macbeth: Nope, I got out quick as possible!

oO0Oo Resident: polite of you

Wol Euler nods.

Agatha Macbeth: I *am* polite (usually)

Agatha Macbeth: or try to be at least

Agatha Macbeth: Mothers' training lasts long :)

Wol Euler smiles.

oO0Oo Resident: unless a person somehow enjoys being impolite.. hard to last in SL without some aspects of politeness

Wol Euler: hmmmmm

Agatha Macbeth: Well the good thing about SL is you can at least mute them

--BELL--

Agatha Macbeth: Is this the usual Saturday morning turnout?

Wol Euler: in quantity, abuot right; not hte usual suspects though

Agatha Macbeth: The dreaded 1AM

Wol Euler: berti sometimes drops in

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: it's for strays and runaways :)

Wol Euler: like the bar in a train station

Wol Euler: I like that about it

Agatha Macbeth: Early risers and insomniacs...

Wol Euler: mmhmm

oO0Oo Resident: oh.. that reminds me of a movie.. rummages

Agatha Macbeth: Rummages? Don't know it

Wol Euler: heheheheh

Agatha Macbeth: is Steven segal in it?

oO0Oo Resident: It is called "The Good Heart" (2009) written and directed by an Icelander Dagur Kári

Agatha Macbeth jumps

oO0Oo Resident: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0808285/

Wol Euler: oh, don't know that.

Wol Euler: ty

Agatha Macbeth: Hm, don't know that one either

Agatha Macbeth: Is it film noir about a volcano?

Wol Euler raises an eyebrow.

Agatha Macbeth: Was thinking of the ash cloud of a coupl of years ago

Wol Euler: ah

oO0Oo Resident: the connection.. I guess is an odd bar with eccentric characters.. toward what Wol said about the bar in a train station

Agatha Macbeth: Aha

Agatha Macbeth: Bit like the Café de l'Alma then

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: what's that, aggers?

Agatha Macbeth: The place where Aurelia and her friends meet in The Madwoman of Chaillot

Wol Euler: ah :) ty

Agatha Macbeth: One of my all time faves

Wol Euler: hmm, don't know it

Agatha Macbeth: The film version had Kate Hepburn and Danny Kaye, along with numerous other familiar faces

Agatha Macbeth: Sam, this film of yours looks more it's set in Dodge City than Reykjavik :p

Wol Euler: :)

Agatha Macbeth: I can almost see Clint Eastwood walking in

Agatha Macbeth: 'Anybody need shootin' today?'

Wol Euler: hehehe

oO0Oo Resident: perhaps if you watch the trailler Ags

Agatha Macbeth: I had to stop watching Clint Eastwood films cos my TV was clogged up with corpses

Wol Euler: heheh

--BELL--

Wol Euler: brb, more coffee

Agatha Macbeth: Very ood, wish i could hear as well as see it...

Agatha Macbeth: good*

Wol Euler: it is indeed ood.

Agatha Macbeth: Are you alright 0?

Agatha Macbeth: Well the gestures are working anyway

Agatha Macbeth: Twice in fact

Wol Euler smiles.

Wol Euler: you missed a fine friday afternoon session, aggers

Wol Euler: much music and dancing

Agatha Macbeth: You know, the guy in that trailer reminds me of trin :p

Agatha Macbeth: Oh?

Wol Euler: (gestures reminded me)

oO0Oo Resident: Friday arvo was fun :)

Agatha Macbeth: Ah yes, we kept having power cuts last night, so i went to bed

Wol Euler: oh boo :(

Agatha Macbeth: Hence I am up early

Agatha Macbeth: Don't need electricity in bed, which is another adavntage to it

Wol Euler grins.

Wol Euler: depends what you do there

Agatha Macbeth: Er...sleep?

Wol Euler: oh, yes

Agatha Macbeth: Why what do you do there?

Wol Euler: read :)

Wol Euler: and sleep, sure

Agatha Macbeth: Ah

Agatha Macbeth: I could take a torch I suppose

Agatha Macbeth: Hi Shig :)

Wol Euler: hello shige; shige, this is sam and aggers

Agatha Macbeth nods

Wol Euler: of course :)

Shigeko Tachikawa: hi

oO0Oo Resident: Hi Shigeko

Agatha Macbeth waves

Wol Euler: see you at fracture, maybe?

Shigeko Tachikawa: maybe, yes

Wol Euler smiles.

Wol Euler: take care of yourself

Shigeko Tachikawa: will do

Shigeko Tachikawa waves

Wol Euler smiles.

oO0Oo Resident: http://is.gd/ca2P78

oO0Oo Resident: Nice music .. mmmmm

Agatha Macbeth: Does she know half her tail's missing?

Wol Euler: yep

Agatha Macbeth: Ok

Wol Euler grins.

Agatha Macbeth: Revolving door maybe?

Wol Euler: heheheheheh

Agatha Macbeth: Nekos should avoid revolving doors by habit

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: or hold on to their tails when going through

Agatha Macbeth: That also works

Agatha Macbeth waits for 0 to leap up in the air again

--BELL--

Agatha Macbeth: Wow Wol, I can almost see you now

Wol Euler: O.O

Wol Euler: you wait until now to say that?

Agatha Macbeth: What you have on anyway

Agatha Macbeth: Yep

Wol Euler rebakes right away, of course

Agatha Macbeth: ty

oO0Oo Resident: **Harder to be kind, than to be clever.. Cleverness a gift.. kindness a choice**

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: worth remembering

Agatha Macbeth: Hard for some to be either :p

Wol Euler: aye

Wol Euler: so :) what's the plan for today?

oO0Oo Resident: Just recalling from a video Eliza recommended.. Jeff Bezos giving Princeton Graduation address

Wol Euler nods.

oO0Oo Resident: Plan?

Agatha Macbeth: Family day for moi

Wol Euler: nice, aggers

Agatha Macbeth: Mmm

Agatha Macbeth: Sun is shining too

Wol Euler smiles.

oO0Oo Resident: You two could meet for lunch in Paris :)

oO0Oo Resident: or dinner

Wol Euler: heheh, we could

Agatha Macbeth: Unlikely I'm afraid

Wol Euler: it's under 3 hours from here, now that the TGV runs to Stuttgart

Agatha Macbeth: TGV?

Wol Euler: Train Grand Vitesse

Agatha Macbeth: Ah

Agatha Macbeth: Sounds like a football club

Wol Euler: perhaps that too

oO0Oo Resident: "Vitesse" rolls off the tongue nicely :)

Agatha Macbeth: TGV Stuttgart

Wol Euler: hehehe

Wol Euler: for me, domestic bureaucracy day

Agatha Macbeth pulls 0's bow

Wol Euler: laundry, shopping, organizing, cleaning the kitchen

Agatha Macbeth: Sounds great fun

Wol Euler: all things in moderation :)

Agatha Macbeth: Well, hopefully

Wol Euler: I've noticed that I don't mind *doing* these things, but I hate *starting* them

Wol Euler: once I get going, it's fine

Agatha Macbeth: Starting is always 90 per cent of the effort

Wol Euler: yep

Wol Euler: overcoming that inertia

oO0Oo Resident nods

Agatha Macbeth: It's like getting a rocket off the earth

Agatha Macbeth: Once it's up there, the rest is plain sailing

Wol Euler: yep

Agatha Macbeth: Ah well, time to make a move I think...

Wol Euler smiles.

Wol Euler: bye aggers, enjoy your family day
