    The Guardian for this meeting was Storm Nordwind. The comments are by Storm Nordwind.

    Storm Nordwind: Good day Yaku!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning storm
    Storm Nordwind: How are you today?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: pretty well, got a nice cup of coffee and made 2 phonecalls after work
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: silent thursday
    Storm Nordwind: It is? Oh nobody told me! ;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)


    Storm Nordwind: I'm just thinking whether I should start winterizing the pavilion
    Storm Nordwind: I've already put a little ice on the pool
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i started the snow last friday too
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah, right, didn´t notice
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but it´s still overflown by water
    Storm Nordwind: Yes. It gets more opaque as the season goes on
    Storm Nordwind: And I think I need to change the texture of the pavilion snow when it's at low intensity. What I have is great for high snowfall but not for flurries
    Storm Nordwind: See?
    Storm Nordwind: I need a more sparse texture for that
    Yakuzza Lethecus: were there changes on how large the resolution of textures are allowed to be ?
    Storm Nordwind: And I think I'll put a controller for guardians on the side so they don't have to remember how to do it
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i also forgot the snow and was glad when the command was added to the /9 help
    Storm Nordwind: I have full control of the script. But I haven't adjusted it in years, so yes I can easily do that. This year i should actually do it: it's not hard!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i really like these small toys to play at the pavillion
    Storm Nordwind smiles


    Storm Nordwind: Well we don't have a topic this week. Is there anything that you're inspired to discuss?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: not really i liked what i read yesterday about optimism and age
    Yakuzza Lethecus: just hope to read something new from someone elses mind :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am boring, i could ask you how you liked gods and kings of course :)
    Storm Nordwind: Ha! Boring no.
    Storm Nordwind: And Gods and Kings is fine... though I really must try it again. At the moment I'm rather more enthusiastic about flying around Hawaii in bad weather!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you´re meeting pila ?
    Storm Nordwind: Not in RL. And not knowingly in this flight simulation. Though I can buzz his house in the simulation if i want to! ;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ha :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: microsoft flight sim ?
    Storm Nordwind: yes. The free one.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but you don´t have 3 screens to get fully immersed with feedback input devices ? :)
    Storm Nordwind: Ah that would be nice. Of course I worked in those 20 years ago. But no, I'm not complaining - this is free and on a high-end machine like mine it's very good
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey xirana

    Making it snow.

    Storm Nordwind: Xirana - welcome!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: civ was the only game i´ve really played this year except some casual games
    Xirana Oximoxi: hello Yaku, Storm! :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: snowing:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and btw. austria is totally overpowerd in gods and kings
    Storm Nordwind: haha! Yes. But it's not alone
    Storm Nordwind: Sorry Xirana - that's game talk!
    Xirana Oximoxi: there are alos the bourbons:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: ok..no problem at all:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: do you play anything on the computer xirana ?
    Xirana Oximoxi: is there a way to make the snowing...or to stop it?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, type /9 help
    Yakuzza Lethecus: btw. /9snowX
    Xirana Oximoxi: no, Yaku:) I hev not played game computers
    Yakuzza Lethecus: X is the intensity
    Storm Nordwind: And do shout it, because that activates all 7 snow machines, not just 1.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, only knew the one in the pavillion
    Storm Nordwind: Though I'm going to make it easier for everyone this year and build a weather generator :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: wonderful! :)
    Storm Nordwind: There are 6 more outside the pavilion
    Storm Nordwind: I'll show you
    Xirana Oximoxi: so, if I type /9 snow
    Storm Nordwind: Now move you camera out a little
    Xirana Oximoxi: it snows?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: . /9snow7
    Storm Nordwind: 0-5 only
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ups
    Yakuzza Lethecus: 0 nothing 5 max
    Storm Nordwind: yes
    Xirana Oximoxi: now
    Xirana Oximoxi: I like it... but all the time makes me feel cold:)
    Storm Nordwind: haha!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ur not living in the warmest part of spain either i guess :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: did you have snow yet ?
    Storm Nordwind: We have here
    Storm Nordwind: And more due this weekend
    Storm Nordwind: But it was warm yesterday at 21 degrees C
    Xirana Oximoxi: no:)...1000 m altitude...so quite cold also...but not like Sweden, Germany, Polen...
    Storm Nordwind: 1700m altitude here too
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning San
    Santoshima Resident: good morning :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey san
    Xirana Oximoxi: no, not yet...at night minus 1 or 2 grads...but still not snow
    Xirana Oximoxi: hello San
    Santoshima Resident: hi and hey! sorry to be late
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ur not late :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I was late too:)..
    Storm Nordwind: And we're really light in our chat today. No serious topics of conversation - so far!
    Santoshima Resident: excellent
    Santoshima Resident: & snowing inworld
    Storm Nordwind dusts a snowflake from his nose
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've tried /snow0...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hmm what´s missing is a snow template for the pavillion or is there a secret command like /9grass ? /9snow
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: now it's snowing outside:)
    Storm Nordwind: because you spoke not shouted
    Santoshima Resident: have set it off a few times by clckin on the rezzer above
    Storm Nordwind: :)
    Santoshima Resident: by accident
    Xirana Oximoxi: I don't know the difference Storm....:) at least in typen chat
    Yakuzza Lethecus: where is the rezzer ?
    Xirana Oximoxi: using capital letters?
    Santoshima Resident: straight up
    Storm Nordwind: There's a pulldown at the right hand side of my chat bar that allows you to choose
    Storm Nordwind: There are 7 rezzers. One indeed is straight up
    Storm Nordwind: But, as I mentioned earlier, I think I will make a little control box for guardians to change the weather here. :)
    Santoshima Resident: whole weather system is in place for a snowy winter :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: that would be great for 'silly' guardians with scripts and so on like me:)
    Santoshima Resident: showuting has to do with the distance of the rezzers, is that right, Storm?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: every gardian will have plowing duty ? :)
    Santoshima Resident: :)
    Storm Nordwind: Yes San. Really I should have them relay the command to each other. I was lazy and and never got round to changing it! But saying things only goes 20 meters, enough only to get to one rezzer. Shouting goes 100 meters, even over sim boundaries, and that triggers all rezzers.
    Santoshima Resident: i see
    Santoshima Resident: is "relay" like a commend echo?
    Storm Nordwind: Oh, I could just have the close one shout to the others on a secret channel. But I got distracted by other things. And I should change the snow texture for small flurries too. This year i should do all these things. Nag me! ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I go now....have a nice and warm day all:)
    Storm Nordwind: Bye Xirana!
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye bye
    Santoshima Resident: bye Xirana
    Storm Nordwind: Stay warm!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye xirana
    Santoshima Resident: good to see you both ~ enjoy the day!
    Storm Nordwind: Bye San!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: send it in im
    Yakuzza Lethecus: too fast going sometimes
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: see you soon storm
    Storm Nordwind: Bye :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
