    That night, I met Moon again outside the tea house.

    Moon Fargis: hi pema
    Pema Pera: Hi Moon!
    Pema Pera: How are your teachings, talks, sessions, discussions going?
    Pema Pera: You are still doing that at Itsari?
    Moon Fargis: yes they are going fine
    Moon Fargis: hmm btw it seems the bellworks fine too.. i forgot yesterday to give anyone a bell
    Moon Fargis: so they can hang it on their residents here in rieul
    Moon Fargis: i la to do a syncronous gonnng
    Moon Fargis: so that all bells gooonnng at the same time
    Pema Pera: is there one here near the tea house too?
    Moon Fargis: right above your head

    I looked up, and then I saw a rather small bell hanging from the corner of the roof of the tea house.

    Pema Pera: ah, the small one at the corner of the roof?
    Moon Fargis: yep
    Pema Pera: Has it rung yet?
    Pema Pera: since we started talking?
    Moon Fargis: it rung every 15 min next rung must be 10:14
    Pema Pera: or is it exactly at a quarter after the hour?
    Pema Pera: okay
    Pema Pera: I normally keep my sounds off when I am in my office or in a coffeeshop
    Moon Fargis: ah
    Pema Pera: but I’ll switch it on now — a few more minutes!
    Moon Fargis: well there are just birds in here so that won’t disturb i guess
    Pema Pera: It’s a great idea. I had been thinking about the Islamic custom of chanting from minarets a few times a day . . . .
    Pema Pera: I’ve had people in coffeeshops walking over to me and asking me to stop hissing :)
    Moon Fargis: uh?
    Pema Pera: I guess one person’s cricket song is another person’s hiss . . . .
    Moon Fargis: hehe
    Moon Fargis: oh did you get the sunday log?
    Pema Pera: yes, am in the process of putting it up just now — should be up in an hour or so
    Pema Pera: Thanks for annotating — that saves me time
    Pema Pera: AH
    Pema Pera: THERE
    Pema Pera: how nice ! ! ! !

    Indeed, a wonderful bell sound reverberated over Rieul.

    Moon Fargis: :)
    Pema Pera: with a nine second long lingering sound ??
    Moon Fargis: yep
    Moon Fargis: doooooonnnngggg
    Pema Pera: that’s really wonderful
    Pema Pera: So you and Fael together did that?
    Moon Fargis: yes she modified the script i made for it
    Pema Pera: great, a very nice addition
    Moon Fargis: normally there are random gongs lik a windbell
    Moon Fargis: hm i think now since i got time i also can start building a hermitage house here
    Pema Pera: the more you build here the better, and then we can see what we like to keep and what you may want to use later elsewhere
    Pema Pera: We certainly have a lot of real estate now!
    Moon Fargis: ohh i already told if some help is needed im here:)
    Pema Pera: yes, please go ahead. Best to talk with Storm, he is doing the landscaping, so he can coordinate with you. For example, we now own most of BaikUn, just a bit to the NE of here .. . .
    Moon Fargis: yes i will

    For a while neither of us said anything.

    Moon Fargis enjoys the nice background music
    Moon Fargis: you know.. a talk between zenmasters are verry silent
    Pema Pera: can be yes :)
    Pema Pera: Is it easy to transfer what you have built in Itsari to here?
    Pema Pera: Or is it complex to get it all set up again?
    Pema Pera: I have no experience yet building
    Moon Fargis: yes i mostly build everything so all rights melongs to me exept one or 2 things
    Moon Fargis: b
    Pema Pera: but can you pick it up as a whole?
    Pema Pera: rather than the pieces
    Pema Pera: to put it in a “box” so to speak and take it to a different sim?
    Moon Fargis: well i guess not
    Pema Pera: but you don’t reassemble every single object, right?
    Moon Fargis: i can link them together so all objects are treated as one
    Pema Pera: but is that in itself a lot of work?
    Moon Fargis: well yes and no :)
    Pema Pera: In 2D graphics you just put a box around what you want to move — but it must be quite a bit more complex in 3D . . .
    Moon Fargis: yes this box is also here
    Pema Pera: or can you capture a rectangular volume?
    Pema Pera: ah, okay, that makes sense
    Moon Fargis: then i say Link and all selected objects are linked together
    Moon Fargis: i did this with my house
    Pema Pera: Well, if and when I get some time, I’d love to start building and scripting!
    Moon Fargis: yes better start building first :) it’s easier
    Pema Pera: But for now, back to work again! 5:30 here . . . .
    Pema Pera: Ah, I must have missed the bell, sound off, did you hear it?
    Moon Fargis: hehe i hear it every day in my garden i might overheard it
    Pema Pera: overheard is a nice expression, like overlooked!
    Pema Pera: We should introduce that in the English language
    Moon Fargis: ahh hehe sorry Denglish
    Pema Pera: too bad it is already used in quite a different way — we should override the meaning!
    Pema Pera: Well, gotta go
    Moon Fargis: ok see you later pema
    Pema Pera: good meeting you here in the wee hours of SL!
    Pema Pera: bfn
