    Riddle Sideways: need really good surge protectors
    Xirana Oximoxi: 'surge'?
    Riddle Sideways: the power strips or UPS (uninterruptable power supply) usually have power surge (spikes) protection in them
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've found :) 6. A sudden, transient increase or oscillation in electric current or voltage.
    Riddle Sideways: yes, like ligthening

    Riddle Sideways: yes, probably best
    Riddle Sideways: many in the path of the latest superstorm over N.J. and N.Y. found cell phones could keep them on the internet :)

    Korel Laloix: Osiyo
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Korel

    Korel Laloix: Clsses canceled today.. might go into work later maybe though.
    Riddle Sideways: torn, whether to type during 90-sec
    Xirana Oximoxi: a special reason to cancel classes?
    Riddle Sideways: maybe, election day
    Xirana Oximoxi: ah yes
    Korel Laloix: Both instructores said they wanted everyon to votes... just an excuse really... smiles
    Korel Laloix: I don't mind.
    Riddle Sideways: takes 10 min to vote, but get the whole day off
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes..one can go vote and have classes
    Xirana Oximoxi: in Spain, they usually prepare the election days on Sundays
    Korel Laloix: Well, a lot of people voting, so was a good line yesterday for early voting.
    Korel Laloix: Will be worse today I expect.
    Xs Andree: you know, i think it makes sense to have the day off. I have never liked being rushed about on election day
    Xs Andree: it seems important on that day to have time to reflect, on the decision you are about to make, as well as the decision you have made, afterward
    Korel Laloix: I think in Australia you are required by law to voite.. not sure how that goes though.
    Riddle Sideways: so many friends to see at the polls. usually stand an talk for an hour
    Korel Laloix: Well, I made my mind up a while back, so did not have to reflect on the decision at least.
    Xirana Oximoxi: not sure about Australia, but yes..some coutries is 'obliged' by law to vote
    Korel Laloix: But for those that are still considering, it is good to have the time.
    Riddle Sideways: yes, we went to a panel meeting over a month ago and heard all sides so decided then.
    Riddle Sideways: however, most times it is the night before's activity

    Korel Laloix: Lots of information and missinformation out there.
    Korel Laloix: Just sad it is such a mesy process.
    Riddle Sideways: purposely mis-leading wording in the propositions
    Xirana Oximoxi: the same here
    Riddle Sideways: lots of double negitives
    Korel Laloix: Double negatives.
    Korel Laloix: Exactly.
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: it may be a studied strategy
    Korel Laloix: Not to mention candidates willing to say anything for a vote.
    Riddle Sideways: yep
    Korel Laloix: I am sure it is.
    Riddle Sideways: how can you know that so-and-so will actually deliver on a promise


    Korel Laloix: I just hate this waiting part... sort of reminds me of when I was waiting for my biopsy results... I knew it was going to be bad, but just how bad..... frowns
    Xs Andree: wow

    Xs Andree: heheh, I just came to the realization. i've been waiting to vote all year
    Riddle Sideways: the waiting
    Xs Andree: .....and this year, I'm suddenly choosing not to vote, and it makes perfect sense
    Xirana Oximoxi: wow..yes...but very different when it is so perosnal and affecting our own health
    Xs Andree: i'm considering abandoning the legal entity of my company
    Korel Laloix: Not different to me at all.
    Korel Laloix: Big choice.
    Xs Andree: i didn't even realize i had one until recently
    Xs Andree: but...yeah.
    Xs Andree: my name ain't "Toby"
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Riddle Sideways: ok, trying, but can't really compare waiting for election returns to biospsy results
    Riddle Sideways: seem different
    Korel Laloix: Supposed to go to a little election party thing tonight... really not motivated for it.
    Xirana Oximoxi: I was also thinking about it....
    Korel Laloix: Feels the same to me though... in a lot of ways...
    Korel Laloix: But of course some aspects are very different.
    Xirana Oximoxi: some ways maybe...but ...yes...exactly...
    Riddle Sideways: the TV will be full of "with 0.01% of the votes in we can project that ..."
    Korel Laloix: Just finding out which really bad result I get.. not a winable one.
    Riddle Sideways: how can they do that ????
    Riddle Sideways: and being told that your vote counts
    Korel Laloix: I do have to say I enjoy the statistics part of the whole mess... the math geek part of me at least.
    Riddle Sideways: but it counts as one of 250 million

    Xirana Oximoxi: I doctor made a wrong diagnose to me... and I've been 'waitingg' quite a long time... my mind like a mess.... during the elections, I have other references and a different approach to the results of it...
    Korel Laloix: I am just glad I have a vote that actually sorta makes a difference.
    Korel Laloix: COmpared to other places in the world.
    Korel Laloix: Could it be better, yes.. Could it be a lot lot worse.. yes.
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes...that's also important to be aware of
    Riddle Sideways: well, locally it is one vote in a million
    Riddle Sideways: ah, there is always the which is a better place of mind

    Korel Laloix: I like the idiom.. The grass is always greener on the other side.
    Riddle Sideways: seems to be true
    Korel Laloix: Not sure about this election though.
    Korel Laloix: Oh well.. we will see in a few hours.
    Xirana Oximoxi: does it mean...we always see things better at other places?
    Xs Andree: I went to make sure i was registered to vote
    Xs Andree: and my card has my name in all capital letters
    Xs Andree: that isn't my name.
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Xs Andree: that is my company
    Korel Laloix: Better at other places.. no.. I think in general we look at difference with suspision.
    Xs Andree: and i quit my company last night.
    Korel Laloix: How did you work that out?
    Xirana Oximoxi: ah! ok..thank you Korel!
    Korel Laloix: So not sure.
    Korel Laloix: Maybe we like what we don't have that is still familar.
    Korel Laloix: And are suspicious of what is not familure.
    Riddle Sideways: yes, suspicious of that grass got greener over there
    Korel Laloix: People are just strange..... and I tend to like that...smiles
    Korel Laloix: Keeps things interesting at least.
    Xirana Oximoxi: well.... usually if the grass is 'greener' it means that's better to feed the sheeps....
    Riddle Sideways: yes :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've made a rural interpretation:)
    Korel Laloix: I think that is the origional interpreation.
    Xs Andree grins
    Korel Laloix: Just got back from running... so going to go for a quick shower as I am starting to chill.
    Korel Laloix: Back in a few mins.
    Riddle Sideways: ok
    Xirana Oximoxi: ok! enjoi the sjower:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: shower
    Korel Laloix: ciao
    Riddle Sideways: suspision seems to be quicker mind set then years ago
    Xs Andree: it is.
    Xs Andree: There is a difference between suspicion and discernment
    Riddle Sideways: suspicion that the other side of fence took your water supply
    Xirana Oximoxi: I usually go to 'Facing idioms' chat here in SL...and it's really interesting and fun to find out about the origin of some expressions
    Riddle Sideways: that would be fun
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes:)
    Xs Andree: can you give me an invite to the group, Xir?
    Riddle Sideways: grass being greener must have an origin
    Xirana Oximoxi: moment...I give you the link the the Calendar...
    Xs Andree: kk
    Xirana Oximoxi: https://www.google.com/calendar/b/0/...ca/Los_Angeles
    Xirana Oximoxi: on MOndays:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: also interesting to see differences between countries
    Xirana Oximoxi: differents ways to express the same
    Xirana Oximoxi: oops, soory:)
    Riddle Sideways: well, google was not much help
    Xs Andree: sometimes expressing the same thing in different ways helps people toward realization of new ideas
    Riddle Sideways: not quite Koans though
    Xs Andree: new ways of looking at things.
    Xs Andree: koans are not the only wisdom, and not everyone is willing to be Zen. not everyone should be Zen.
    Riddle Sideways: true, there should be differences
    Xs Andree: I like that in Zen, though, differences are very workable.
    Xs Andree: But to be Zen is to not be what is not Zen, so, Zen is limiting still.
    Riddle Sideways: Tao is easier
    Riddle Sideways: it is AND it not
    Xs Andree: But can you be Tao and not Tao?
    Riddle Sideways: of course
    Xs Andree: I can accept that, but this is the first time I"ve considered it.
    Riddle Sideways: but, cliches/idioms are usefull
    Riddle Sideways: every cloud has a silver lining
    Riddle Sideways: is comforting is the face of superstorms
    Xs Andree: Silver linings can dissapear, but they'll always Shine
    Riddle Sideways: of possible router damage
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Xs Andree: ㋡
    Xirana Oximoxi: I will go now....have a nice day and take care:)
    Xs Andree: You too, Xir. Take care and have a good day
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye bye:)

    Xs Andree: When there's lightning, you know it always brings me down
    Xs Andree: Cause it's free and i see that its me
    Xs Andree: Who's lost and never found
