    Agatha Macbeth: I'm ok lag-wise atm
    Bruce Mowbray: lag-wise, I'm cool as well.
    Korel Laloix: 20 second lag between enter and showing up.
    Bruce Mowbray: Whoa!
    Agatha Macbeth: I banged a couple more RAM simms in which seems to have speeded things up
    Alfred Kelberry: how much you got now?
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, dunno
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh yeah, RAM simms help a lot -- as does a whole new video cArd.
    Bruce Mowbray: I have 6 gigs.
    Agatha Macbeth: more than before anyway :p
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: I found I only had ONE on the mobo
    Korel Laloix: I just need a new computer at home.
    Bruce Mowbray ponders gig envy.
    Agatha Macbeth: now have 3
    Alfred Kelberry: aga :)
    Korel Laloix: We have good computers at work, but everything is put throuhg a proxy.
    Agatha Macbeth: W7 works a lot better with more memory
    Bruce Mowbray: I only use proxies when I'm downloading stuff illegally.
    Alfred Kelberry: w7?
    Agatha Macbeth: Windoze
    Bruce Mowbray: Windows 7
    Alfred Kelberry: oh
    Korel Laloix: We use one because the boss is paranoid... lol
    Bruce Mowbray: That's when I upped my gigs to 6 RAM-wise.
    Agatha Macbeth: The NSA again?
    Bruce Mowbray: when I got W7.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeh
    Korel Laloix: Paparazzi.
    Alfred Kelberry: actually, w7 is less demanding than vista
    Korel Laloix: We have a few celebrity clients that attract attention.
    Korel Laloix: No idea how accurate that is though.
    Alfred Kelberry: kori, like?
    Agatha Macbeth: That rapper guy?
    Korel Laloix: Pro atheletes and music stars mostly.
    Alfred Kelberry: what services do you provide?
    Bruce Mowbray: No celebrity hermits, I suppose.
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Korel Laloix: Finanical services.
    Korel Laloix: Well.. you would be surprized.
    Korel Laloix: Some very rich people live on very large ranches and don't see people often.
    Alfred Kelberry: kori is almost a pro athlete celebrity
    Bruce Mowbray ponders Kori rapping while running.
    Agatha Macbeth: Keeps her fit
    Agatha Macbeth: Wol is talking to Liz and Kire atm
    Korel Laloix: I really don't care for rap.
    Agatha Macbeth: she'll be here shortly
    Korel Laloix: But we do have some rapstar clients.
    Alfred Kelberry: aga, shhh... it's a private conversation
    Agatha Macbeth: Me either K
    Alfred Kelberry: we're not supposed to talk about la sakura
    Agatha Macbeth: I never mentioned La sakura!
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, right...
    Bruce Mowbray: This is probably a crude and inappropriate time/method to do this, but would any of you care to join the group of San and me on the next Art as Being project?
    Korel Laloix: I am moving into a dubstep phase and away from metal.. not sure why.
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Alfred Kelberry: bruce, sorry, i'm already teamed up with kori
    Korel Laloix: Am I?
    Bruce Mowbray: kk. Best wishes to you both.
    Agatha Macbeth: I'm still not really sure what the teams are suposed to be doing
    Alfred Kelberry: kori, you are?
    Bruce Mowbray: me neither, actually.
    Bruce Mowbray: But I'm a "team leader" so I'd best be figuring that out soon.
    Alfred Kelberry: aga, laboratory at pab is the theme (science talk inspired)
    Korel Laloix: I thought I was with Bruce and Santo... did someone volunteer me?
    Agatha Macbeth: Man at top of tree feel strongest wind
    Bruce Mowbray: yes yes yes! PLEEEEEEZE join San and me!
    Bruce Mowbray: yes yes.
    Alfred Kelberry: kori, thought you were with me
    Bruce Mowbray: Heavy the head that wears the crown.
    Agatha Macbeth: Well this all seems pretty well worked out...
    Korel Laloix: lol... umm.. how the least creative member of PaB can be on two art teams is really a funny thought.
    Bruce Mowbray: You could come aboard our team, Alfred!!! (more yesses).
    Agatha Macbeth: Who, me? :p
    Bruce Mowbray: You can also come aboard, aggers!
    Bruce Mowbray: (even more yesses).

    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe the fat man went on a diet
    Bruce Mowbray: Someone mentioned in the comments.
    Alfred Kelberry: oh
    Alfred Kelberry: must be another meme
    Bruce Mowbray: I think we all learned something from this:DON'T SCREW AROUND WITH SLENDER MAN
    Agatha Macbeth: We learned your caps work
    Korel Laloix: NOt sure.
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
