    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey storm, good morning
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: toying happily at your pavillion gadgets ?
    Storm Nordwind: Well, I'm seeing what's in my inventory from previous years.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Storm Nordwind checks the theme for the week
    Storm Nordwind: I guess that's a form of "Hindsight" :)
    Storm Nordwind: Anything interesting thoughts from Europe? :)
    Storm Nordwind is a little out of touch
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ha, i am really not a good person to ask for good thought, but i am for sure interested in hearing some :P
    Storm Nordwind: Ever modest :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: na, in my case it´s true only serendipity´s sometimes
    Yakuzza Lethecus: others do apply modesty pragmatically :P
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i miss boxy
    Storm Nordwind: Where is boxy at the moment?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don´t know, just haven´t seen him in sl for a while
    Yakuzza Lethecus: does firestorm still show somewhere when an avi last logged in ?
    Storm Nordwind: I've no idea. But all viewers do if you know what to do. ;)
    Storm Nordwind: By the way, I may have to disappear for 5 minutes at some time, to let workmen in. But workmen being as they are, they may be late! ;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or they leave early
    Storm Nordwind: Well these are paid by results. So it they choose to take longer, that's up to them.
    Storm Nordwind: *if
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, well my boss bought a solar roof for his home so they initially wanted to get the work done today
    Yakuzza Lethecus: due to weather reasons they left early
    Storm Nordwind: Rain?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: with some snowcristals
    Storm Nordwind: Ah yes. I remember that stuff... wet isn't it, and falls from the sky? I'm sure I used to experience that a few years ago. ;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you got lots of snow ?
    Storm Nordwind: SNow yes. Though not yet. Some in October but curiously none this month
    Storm Nordwind: Would normally have around 18cm in November

    We are our mistakes?!

    Storm Nordwind: Hindsight, however, is probably more than just record keeping and record browsing. :)
    Storm Nordwind: I guess some conclusion needs to be reached, perhaps one that potentially changes future behavior.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, ideally
    Storm Nordwind: A sort of "If I'd have known then what I know now, I would have done things differently."
    Yakuzza Lethecus: a bit tricky since we didn´t only do mistakes, we are our mistakes
    Storm Nordwind: Though ... and here's a point ... is it possible to have hindsight without having regret? I would say yes, but others may differ.
    Storm Nordwind: We are our mistakes?! That's rather pessimistic isn't it? Why do you say that?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: more like we are what we are, the things i might be proud of and the things i have screwed up
    Yakuzza Lethecus: how fixed on the own acts should one be
    Storm Nordwind: Well it's one thing to know at the time that you're doing the wrong thing and making a mistake. It's quite another to do the best you can at the time, with the best knowledge you have at that time, and it turns out to be a mistake. In the second case, is it really a mistake? You did your best.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don´t believe in referential integrity in the human brain
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i do believe that most ppl do mistakes constantly even tho they should know better
    Storm Nordwind: That's not my personal experience :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey luci
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Luci :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: tasks are often habitual, so as soon as tasks are not concious even concious knowledge doesn´t let you flip all ur habits
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Storm, Yakuzza
    Storm Nordwind: Aren't habits are short cuts though, just to help you do things more efficiently.?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sure, maybe i am too habitual :)
    Storm Nordwind: if you think so, simply break your routine. :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: doesn´t mean i am efficiant tho :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey san
    Storm Nordwind waves to san
    Santoshima Resident: good morning
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning and good coffee/tea for you i hope
    Santoshima Resident: green tea and delicious

    Luci's lag.

    Lucinda Lavender: hi San...I am testing how slow my laptop is working by exploring here
    Santoshima Resident: oh
    Lucinda Lavender: things seem to work ok...
    Santoshima Resident: how is going?
    Santoshima Resident: sorry to be late ~ please continue
    Storm Nordwind: You may find testing laptop speed in SL is sometimes misleading, especially as you are often dependent of things you can't affect, like server speeds and internet connections.
    Santoshima Resident: does size of inventory also affect?
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks Storm...yes
    Storm Nordwind: It may at first san. But not after you're ensconced here :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I did a restart for the computer this morning...sl seems to work well enough...the problems were outside sl I guess
    Santoshima Resident: hmm ... thought the lag experienced was from an excess of tutus in stock
    Storm Nordwind grins
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci could take one off your hands:)
    Storm Nordwind promises not to wear one
    Lucinda Lavender: always have wanted a tutu
    Santoshima Resident: alas, all the great clothing items are non-transferrable
    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    Santoshima Resident: { i'll check }
    Santoshima Resident: coming your way luci :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :))grinning excitedly!!
    Santoshima Resident: go wild
    Lucinda Lavender: problem is my arrow cursor only works fast in certain fields...cannot seem to open the message sent
    Lucinda Lavender: but can type fine here
    Lucinda Lavender: I have a lot of photos on my desktop could that be a problem
    Storm Nordwind: Are you using a mouse or touchscreen?
    Lucinda Lavender: laptop, mac, with a touch pad
    Lucinda Lavender: cannot read sans messages because the appear behind my chat field window
    Lucinda Lavender: arrow has white around it
    Santoshima Resident: just move the chat window
    Santoshima Resident: ?
    Lucinda Lavender: won't move for me
    Lucinda Lavender: no dragging
    Lucinda Lavender: arrow has that white rim around it
    Lucinda Lavender: lets see if I can stand
    Lucinda Lavender: not working yet
    Lucinda Lavender: sorry to interrupt with my discussion of computer detail...do carry on about habit...
    Santoshima Resident: brb

    Storm Nordwind: :(
    Lucinda Lavender: I guess when I turn my computer off it may make me dissapear:)
    Lucinda Lavender: by for now dears:)
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Lucinda Lavender: cannot even leave
    Santoshima Resident: ! easy decision then

    Santoshima Resident: bye Yaku
    Santoshima Resident: what is your draw distance set at luci?
    Storm Nordwind: good point
    Lucinda Lavender: hi back
    Santoshima Resident: also check cache for whatever viewer you're using, and empty it (i think that helps, but could be wrong)
    Storm Nordwind: If your machine is slow, make sure your draw distance is no higher than 64m
    Lucinda Lavender: can only type in this field...thanks storm
