    I came into SL to take care of some business, four hours after I had left the previous session, and to my surprise I noticed that Fael and Moon were still at the tea house. It turned out that they had created a little master piece performance, in which they could let an avatar sing a lovely German children’s song, together with an angelic posture and beautiful light effects all around the singing figure. I stayed for a while, to see the performance and to chat. Further below I include the 7 am morning session, with the chat log and comments sent to me by Fael, the guardian for that session. The picture toward the end was taken by Pia.

    Fael Illyar: Hello Pema
    Moon Fargis: the whole body moves:)
    Pema Pera: hi there!
    Moon Fargis: wb pema
    Moon Fargis: we are still here since 1 am :)
    Pema Pera: Good seeing you here
    Pema Pera: wowowow
    Pema Pera: amazing
    Fael Illyar: Hello Dakini
    Pema Pera: throughout my whole dinner!!
    Dakini Rhode: hi!
    Pema Pera: Hi Dakini!
    Dakini Rhode: wonderful to see you folks here
    Pema Pera: These people have done a marathon PaB
    Dakini Rhode: i’ll be poking around in the garden a bit…
    Pema Pera: wow

    After Dakini had joined us too, the four of us chatted for a while, and then Spock joint us as well. So we had Dakini in the US, Spock in Spain, Moon in Germany, Fael in Finland, and me in Japan, all standing here together in front of the tea house in Rieul.

    Fael Illyar: I’m not sure if you can call it PaB all the way through :)
    Pema Pera: so we are going to get a monster chat log, right :-)
    Pema Pera: oh, anything can be PaB
    Pema Pera: as we know from the past :)
    Pema Pera: What fun to have us here again from three continents
    Fael Illyar: Well, if you’re intested in reading about what went on while Moon was making this scripted gesture :)
    Pema Pera: Dakini woken up, me soon going to sleep and the three Europeans in between
    Pema Pera: which gesture?
    Pema Pera: onigokko?
    Moon Fargis: no one second ill upload a fixed animation for it
    Dakini Rhode: i heard the little angel singing…
    Spock Yuitza: hello Pema
    Faenik: ah :)

    At that moment Moon started his performance, after he had rezzed a wooden stage on the lawn.

    Pema Pera: oooooooo
    Pema Pera: wunderbahr . . . . .
    Dakini Rhode: wow
    Pema Pera: clap clap clap ! ! ! !
    Spock Yuitza: wonderfull
    Moon Fargis: thanks wouldnt be possible without faels greaaate help in scripting
    Pema Pera: so how did you do this, what were the ingredients?
    Dakini Rhode: I see I’m about to be sucked into SL again…. :-)
    Fael Illyar: Moon, does it still have something that needs fixing?
    Pema Pera: yes, Dakini, it does seem so, doesn’t it :-)
    Moon Fargis: no everything is great!
    Pema Pera: one of those days . . . .
    Moon Fargis: just have to attach it to another point
    Pema Pera: If we leave Moon and Fael here for a week, we won’t recognize the place anymore . . . . nor the avatars :)
    Fael Illyar: haha :)
    Moon Fargis: hehehe
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Moon Fargis: hoe this works better
    Moon Fargis: ohh no
    Moon Fargis: not
    Moon Fargis: hehe
    Moon Fargis: ohh no
    Moon Fargis: nonooo
    Moon Fargis: noo
    Moon Fargis: hehe
    Fael Illyar: It’d probably be possible to stabilize it with a script but if you can modify the animation and stabilize it that way, that’s always better
    Dakini Rhode: i did not think i would be serenaded by angels before my breakfast
    Pema Pera: or after dinner for that matter :)

    The performance very much reminded me of the Saint Lucia songs in Sweden, but the custom didn’t seem to be known much nearby, neither in Denmark, nor in Finland, as I was about to hear.

    Pema Pera: Moon and Fael, do you know the Swedish custom
    Pema Pera: of saint Lucia
    Moon Fargis: no
    Pema Pera: December 13 I believe?
    Fael Illyar: no, doesn’t ring a bell
    Pema Pera: wonderful song going with it
    Dakini Rhode: amazing particle effects, too
    Moon Fargis: the avatar still moves.. the priority i gave to the anim doesnt count…
    Pema Pera: zusammen bringen . . . . .
    Pema Pera: clap clap clap ! ! ! !
    Pema Pera: wie schoen . . . .
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Fael Illyar: Moon did one of the particle effects and I did the other.
    Dakini Rhode: sadly i recognize German but don’t understand more than a few words…

    Here are the German lyrics:
    Es leuchtet am himmel so wunderschön,
    und doch so weit entfernt ein stern.
    Manch mal da träum ich ich würde ihn sehn,
    den goldenen stern, doch er ist so fern.
    Oft wünsche ich er waehre nah,
    ich könntem ein lied mit ihn singen.
    Mit der kraft meines Traumes wird es wahr
    und bald wird sie uns zusammenbringen

    Pema Pera: wanna translate the text Herr Mond?
    Moon Fargis: hehe
    Moon Fargis: its hard to translate
    Moon Fargis: but here is the lyric
    Moon Fargis: from the english version
    Moon Fargis:
    The faraway golden star that twinkles in the night sky
    Is the same color as the little bird that I looked up at in my dream last night
    On sleepless nights
    I sing songs alone
    Together with the wind passing by
    I pick up my thoughts and fly
    The faraway silver moon that shines in the night sky
    Is the same color as the wild roses that were blooming in my dream last night
    Dakini Rhode: sweet!
    Moon Fargis: but the german version is different
    Moon Fargis: sadly
    Moon Fargis: so the text isnt right
    Moon Fargis: i willl have to go now.. THHHHHHHHHHHAAAANNKYOU fael
    Fael Illyar: You’re welcome :)
    Moon Fargis: i will see you later then we might talk about it again.. now i have to deliver this gift :)
    Dakini Rhode: hello
    Pema Pera: bye Moon!
    Dakini Rhode: hmm
    Moon Fargis: bye bye
    Pema Pera: thanks a lot!
    Dakini Rhode: bye moon!

    Meanwhile Dakini had started to play with a Babbler version, an automatic translation engine that she had found. She gave us copies as well, but we had some difficulties getting it to work.

    xDakini: Dakini welcome to Babbler3. Have fun! For more information, visit http://www.maxcase.info/babbler3.

    Fael Illyar: I guess I could take a copy of babbler since it’s a copiable :) No, I haven’t
    Pema Pera: it says no transfer
    Pema Pera: but I got it from Dakini
    Dakini Rhode: i see i can give it away
    Pema Pera: Dakini yes
    Dakini Rhode: it is one of the buttons
    Pema Pera: can you give it to Fael?
    Fael Illyar: thank you :)

    We kept puzzling over it.

    Dakini Rhode: the button in the center allows you to give it away
    Fael Illyar: ah, apparently some kind of server that gives out copies if you press the button
    Dakini Rhode: i’m not sure how it works
    Dakini Rhode: will need to read the instructions
    Dakini Rhode: pema will you say something in German please
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.

    Fael Illyar: ah, you need to choose who to activate it for
    Fael Illyar: japanese again please
    Dakini Rhode: yes
    Pema Pera: はい
    Pema Pera: すみません
    Pema Pera: 何を喋りましょうか
    Pema Pera: むかしむかし
    Fael Illyar: no, doesn’t work
    Pema Pera: おじいさんとぼあちゃん
    Pema Pera: and I can only translate to English it seems
    Dakini Rhode: there are a number of selections
    Pema Pera: from various languages
    Fael Illyar: This should translate my text now.
    Pema Pera: okay
    Fael Illyar: but doesn’t seem to work
    Dakini Rhode: i have used this in the past, it worked ok
    Pema Pera: hello
    Pema Pera: はい
    Pema Pera: hmm

    Ryusho had walking in, together with SlimeX

    Pema Pera: hi Ryusho!
    ryusho Ort: sorry guys
    SlimeX Grossman: hi
    Faenik: ah :)
    Dakini Rhode: did that just translate you Pema?
    ryusho Ort: i believe we have not met pema
    Pema Pera: hi SlimeX
    Dakini Rhode: hi ryusho, slime :-)
    Pema Pera: no
    Fael Illyar: Hello

    SlimeX Grossman: oh
    SlimeX Grossman: hi!
    SlimeX Grossman: are u a group?
    Dakini Rhode: Ryusho is making practice robes…
    ryusho Ort: what is “blabbler”?
    SlimeX Grossman salutes
    ryusho Ort: hi spock
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Dakini Rhode: i can give you a copy, but it isn’t working for us…
    Spock Yuitza: hi

    I took the opportunity to give a quick PaB introduction.

    Pema Pera: http://playasbeing.wordpress.com/ is our web site
    Pema Pera: we get together here four times a day
    Spock Yuitza: hello ryuso
    Dakini Rhode: it is for translating languages
    ryusho Ort: what does it do?
    ryusho Ort: ic ic
    Pema Pera: translate
    Pema Pera: if it works
    Pema Pera: :)
    ryusho Ort: no wonder i saw pema talking in Japanese
    Pema Pera: can’t make it work
    Pema Pera: はい
    Pema Pera: けど
    Pema Pera: 自分ではなします

    I said in Japanese that I was talking myself, to tell Ryusho that it is not the automatic translator writing the Japanese, but me typing directly on my keyboard. However, my short sentence was not clear enough, and this let to an amusing misunderstanding.

    Dakini Rhode: i shall go read the instructions… in my spare time
    Fael Illyar: 日本語です
    SlimeX Grossman: can i do something quikly?
    ryusho Ort: it says yes and but!

    I had typed “yes, but … I talk myself” and I tried to indicate that I was not an “it” when I was saying it :-)

    SlimeX Grossman: like pop something out?
    Pema Pera: not it, me
    Pema Pera: I wrote that
    ryusho Ort: go ahead slimeX
    Dakini Rhode: ok SlimeX
    SlimeX Grossman: k
    SlimeX Grossman: tks
    Pema Pera: 日本語も話せます。
    Pema Pera: 機会じゃなくて
    SlimeX Grossman: oh crap
    ryusho Ort: is working pema
    Pema Pera: 人間です
    ryusho Ort: why you say is not??

    Hahaha, I had just typed “I can speak Japanese too; this is not a machine but a human being (typing)”. Ryusho still thought “it” was working for me :>).

    Pema Pera: I am just typing that directly
    SlimeX Grossman: everybody up!
    Pema Pera: I can speak Japanese
    Pema Pera: no machine involved . . . .
    SlimeX Grossman: theres a unit up
    SlimeX Grossman: where did my unit go??
    Pema Pera: funny that you thought I was a machine, Ryusho!
    SlimeX Grossman: see?
    SlimeX Grossman: in the unit
    Faenik: why not?
    SlimeX Grossman: folw me
    SlimeX Grossman: secret place
    SlimeX Grossman: ill get the chairs
    Dakini Rhode: nice!
    ryusho Ort: why did you bring this ghulabala here slimex!!???
    Pema Pera: funny that you thought I was a machine, Ryusho!
    Dakini Rhode: did you make this SlimeX?
    Pema Pera: alas, no machine involved yet
    SlimeX Grossman: no..
    ryusho Ort: DAKINI!!!?>??
    Dakini Rhode: yes?
    ryusho Ort: NICE!!!??

    However, everybody’s attention was taken up by SlimeX rezzing some huge structure next to the tea house, partly penetrating the tea house and looming over it.

    ryusho Ort: pema: i did not say you are a machine! why you said that?
    Pema Pera: oh, I thought you said it was working
    Pema Pera: the translation
    Pema Pera: but that ws not a translation
    Pema Pera: that was me writing Japanese
    Pema Pera: haha
    Dakini Rhode: did you know this is on my teahouse, slimeX?
    SlimeX Grossman: oh sorry!
    Dakini Rhode: :-)
    ryusho Ort: sorry but dakini just gave me a thing called babbler is a translator
    Pema Pera: yes, I got it too, but we don’t yet know how to use it
    ryusho Ort: she said it would not work so i tought you were trying it out!
    Dakini Rhode: my babbler is babbling in empty words
    Pema Pera: are you Japanese?
    Pema Pera: yes, I understand!
    SlimeX Grossman: this place is kinda messy but itll last
    Pema Pera: np
    ryusho Ort: nihonjin ja arimasen ga
    Dakini Rhode: last?
    Pema Pera: it is fun to write different languages
    ryusho Ort: nihongo shabemasu
    Pema Pera: 中国人?
    SlimeX Grossman: ni hao
    SlimeX Grossman: wo si slimex
    Pema Pera: wow, quite a build here!!
    ryusho Ort: 我們都是華人
    SlimeX Grossman: ta si ryu’
    ryusho Ort: 不過是新加坡的華人
    ryusho Ort: 不是中國的!

    Ryusho had answered me that he was not Japanese, and he then started speaking Chinese instead. Since the characters were similar, because Japanese is derived from Chinese, I could more or less understand what he said and I tried to translate the characters one by one to get a sense. SlimeX spoke in Chinese as well.

    Pema Pera: hmm, not this chinese like?
    SlimeX Grossman: ni shuo de dui!
    Dakini Rhode: i see you have put part of a treehouse in my zen retreat, SlimeX
    Dakini Rhode: But i’m not sure why
    SlimeX Grossman: sory!
    ryusho Ort: dont worry dakini
    ryusho Ort: it is temporary
    Dakini Rhode: haha
    ryusho Ort: he has to remove it
    SlimeX Grossman: yep
    Dakini Rhode: yes were you showing us this?
    ryusho Ort: or i will remove HIM!
    SlimeX Grossman: should i remove the house?
    Dakini Rhode: lol ryusho
    Fael Illyar: it’ll vanish in a few minutes due to autoreturn :)
    SlimeX Grossman: i know
    Dakini Rhode: I’m just wondering what you mean to show us
    SlimeX Grossman: i hope it happens
    SlimeX Grossman: umm..
    ryusho Ort: slimex take this ugly thing away!!
    SlimeX Grossman: im thinking of it as my house
    ryusho Ort: before i take you!
    Dakini Rhode: ah i see
    SlimeX Grossman: OK!
    SlimeX Grossman: everybody out
    SlimeX Grossman: wait
    ryusho Ort: NOW!
    SlimeX Grossman: k
    SlimeX Grossman: done

    The large structure disappeared as quickly as it had appeared in the first place.

    ryusho Ort: finally some peace!
    ryusho Ort: dakini
    SlimeX Grossman: …
    ryusho Ort: you have time to try out the outfit already?
    Dakini Rhode: we do need to find a larger place to sit
    Pema Pera: Well, I have to take off, have to be back here in one hour
    Dakini Rhode: no, i was sleeping ryusho
    SlimeX Grossman: my place?
    Pema Pera: Nice meeting your both, ryusho and SlimeX!
    SlimeX Grossman: ok
    SlimeX Grossman: bye!
    ryusho Ort: hope to see you again pema
    Pema Pera: お休みなさい
    ryusho Ort: nice meeting you!
    Pema Pera: how do you say good night in Chinese?
    Dakini Rhode: good night, Pema :-)
    ryusho Ort: is an honor
    ryusho Ort: 晚安
    Pema Pera: nice!
    SlimeX Grossman: oh
    Pema Pera: gentle evening
    SlimeX Grossman: zao an
    Pema Pera: evening peaceful
    ryusho Ort: 再見!
    SlimeX Grossman: is morning
    Pema Pera: yes
    Pema Pera: again seeing
    Fael Illyar: See you Pema :)
    Pema Pera: I look forward to visit China
    Pema Pera: and read
    Pema Pera: though I can’t speak
    Dakini Rhode: Evening in Japan :-)
    Pema Pera: come visit us in the tea house some day for Play as Being if you like: http://playasbeing.wordpress.com/

    I left SL and returned an hour later. I found Fael and Pia at the tea house, for the 7 am session. As I mentioned above, Fael was the guardian for that session, and from here on the comments are hers.

    I was at the teahouse waiting for others to arrive and Pia happened to be the first one.

    Fael Illyar: Hello Pia
    Pia Iger: Hi, Fael, are you Guardian today?
    Fael Illyar: Yes, I am
    Pia Iger: good. Do you want to sit outside? I feel like it.
    Fael Illyar: I don’t mind either way :)
    Pia Iger: I am adjust the view.

    Pema arrived a few minutes later.

    Pema Pera: Greetings!
    Fael Illyar: Hi Pema
    Pema Pera: Good to see you again, Pia!!
    Pia Iger: Hi, pema.
    Pema Pera: And Fael, you have had a six hour session now?
    Pema Pera: :)
    Fael Illyar: I saw no reason to move :P
    Pema Pera: haha, yes
    Pema Pera: glad you’re taking root here!
    Pia Iger: wow..
    Pema Pera: Pia, did Fael show you what she has created, together with Moon?

    I had helped moon with particles and scripts with a scripted gesture (ccs) he wanted to give to someone. We completed it after the 1am PaB meeting.

    Pia Iger: not yet.
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Fael Illyar: there :)
    Pema Pera: wonderful, Fael, so sweet !
    Pema Pera: and what wonderful visuals too!
    Pema Pera: together with the sound
    Faenik loves wells!
    Pia Iger: Enchanting.
    Pema Pera: perfect expression, yes
    Fael Illyar: I mostly helped with the visuals. the animation and sound is from Moon
    Pema Pera: that must be where the term enchanting comes from, from “chant”
    Pema Pera: a chant that works magic
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Pia Iger: what is the lyrics about?
    Fael Illyar: You’ll have to ask moon for those. I do have them in my logs but might take a while to find them.
    Pema Pera: [2008/06/07 5:35] Moon Fargis: The faraway golden star that twinkles in the night sky Is the same color as the little bird that I looked up at in my dream last night On sleepless nights I sing songs alone Together with the wind passing by I pick up my thoughts and fly The faraway silver moon that shines in the night sky Is the same color as the wild roses that were blooming in my dream last night
    Fael Illyar: Oh, Pema was fast :)
    Pema Pera: hehe
    Pia Iger: Ah, beautiful.
    Pia Iger: I notice Moon and Fael are very creative. They made so many things.
    Pema Pera: yes, I mentioned that if we leave them here for a week, we won’t recognize the place anymore . . . .
    Pia Iger: yes!

    I grew a bit uncomfortable with the topic so I decided to see if I could divert it.

    Fael Illyar: I think PaB and this more traditional Zen meditation I’m now doing every morning since Wednesday has reduced my fear of wasps somewhat.
    Pia Iger: fear of wasps?
    Fael Illyar: Well, actually more generally insects that make noise and are colored black and yellow :)
    Pema Pera: :) we have one black and yellow big crawling insect here, but it doesn’t make noise . . . .
    Pia Iger: How do you feel now when you think about wasps,etc?
    Fael Illyar: that one?

    I was trying to point out an insect on the teahouse terrace and was highlighting it with my selection beam.

    Pema Pera: which one?
    Fael Illyar: Still scary but it’s starting to be in manageable range.
    Pema Pera: ah!
    Pema Pera: no, this one, lets see whether I can find it

    Pema rezzed a purple ladybird looking bug the size of a tiny cat. It started moving about. More cute than scary, that one

    Pema Pera: ah, wrong color
    Pia Iger: test Fael right away!
    Pema Pera: fortunately it is walking away!
    Fael Illyar: oh, forgot to add flying in the description :)
    Pema Pera: ah!
    Pema Pera: so safe on two counts ;)
    Pema Pera: not making sound, not stinging, not flying
    Pema Pera: three counts
    Pema Pera: does stinging count?
    Faenik: could be
    Fael Illyar: Well, essentially it’s fear of stinging. If I manage to convince myself that they can’t sting me, I don’t mind them all that much haha
    Pema Pera: I certainly understand that, Fael
    Pema Pera: I had a similar fear of musquitoes for a long time
    Pema Pera: as a child found it very hard to fall asleep with a musquito in my room
    Pema Pera: just the thought itself was somehow very unpleasant
    Pema Pera: more than the ctual consequences

    I felt the need to point out I wasn’t scared of mosquitoes. You either stop fearing them or you die of fear when you’re swimming in them for 2 months every summer.

    Fael Illyar: I was too used to mosquitoes to start fearing them when the event happened that made me fear getting stung
    Pema Pera: a special event?
    Pia Iger: The bug should go the other way!
    Pema Pera: Pia, have you heard the gong before?
    Pia Iger: yes. I think Fael and Moon made them last weekend.
    Fael Illyar: Although, if there is a mosquitoe in my room, I have to hunt it down before going to sleep. Otherwise it’ll find it’s way making noise right in my ear when I’m asleep
    Pema Pera: yes, Pia
    Pia Iger: They do things right away, efficient!
    Fael Illyar: That wakes me up and I hate being woken up in middle of the night
    Pema Pera: do you want to tell us what the special event was, what triggered your anxiety?
    Pia Iger: I was talking about the purple bug you just put out. it was coming my way. i felt nervous.
    Fael Illyar: I was out doing something with my mother and suddenly one stung her in the arm. That’s what I think is the trigger.
    Pia Iger: Most anxiety is from out expectation of bad things.
    Pema Pera: yes indeed
    Fael Illyar: I was less than 5 years old at the time. I’m not sure exactly how old
    Pia Iger: I think my fear of darkness was started at little age, too
    Pema Pera: It is interesting what can trigger our reactions, which then can stay with us for a long time
    Fael Illyar: When you’re less than 5 years old, you tend to overreact easily and this is what happens

    Bogadaeius chose this moment to arrive.

    Pia Iger: that is why I think early child care is very important.
    Pema Pera: Hi Bogdaeius!
    Pema Pera: welcome
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: hello
    Pema Pera: have you been here before?
    Fael Illyar: I think it was traumatic because it was so much out of the ordinary.
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: yes
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: earlier
    Pema Pera: we are just chatting, something we do here four times a day
    Pema Pera: every six hours
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: k
    Pema Pera: 1 and 7, am and pm SL time
    Pema Pera: by the way,
    Pema Pera: As for the last six plus hours, Pia, what happened is that at 1 am SLT I had to go to an early dinner, so I asked Moon and Fael to take over my session. And when I came back four hours later, they had just completed their lovely enchanting act :-)
    Faenik: could be
    Pema Pera: so some people sometimes stay in between the six hours :)
    Pema Pera: but I think Fael so far has been the first !!
    Fael Illyar: Another contributing factor might be that it wasn’t me who got stung, so I was left imagining what it was like.
    Pia Iger: She is also the first who get on PaB practice right away and do it very often.
    Pema Pera: yes, very focused!

    Spock also showed up.

    Pema Pera: But so are you, Pia!
    Fael Illyar: Hello Spock
    Pema Pera: Hi Spock!
    Pema Pera: Nice effects, Bog!
    Spock Yuitza: hello all
    Pia Iger: thanks. I feel very encouraged since Fael and others are doing it seriously too.
    Pia Iger: Hi, Bog and Spock1
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: thank you,. Hey Spock.
    Pema Pera: Bog, http://playasbeing.wordpress.com/ is our web site
    Pema Pera: there is brief information about our explorations
    Pema Pera: basically we are trying to look into reality
    Pema Pera: in a simple and playful way
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: hmm, I tend to look at life in a serios, analitycal way
    Pema Pera: every fifteen minutes, we spend 9 seconds on a form of mini meditation
    Fael Illyar: Should I show the scripted gesture again now that we got more people?

    Here we go again …

    Pema Pera: ssure!
    Fael Illyar: My own way is quite serious and analytical too.
    Pema Pera: please do!
    Pema Pera: oh wait
    Pema Pera: let me get Hotaru too to see it
    Pema Pera: just a sec
    Pia Iger: I want to see it again, since I adust to a better view now.
    Pema Pera: let me see whether Hotaru, who just came online, can come over
    Pema Pera: it fits her sense!
    Pema Pera: I’m sure
    Fael Illyar: Yes, I think it does :)

    Moon arrives just in time.

    Fael Illyar: Hello Moon :)
    Pema Pera: hi Moon!
    Moon Fargis: hello again :)
    Pema Pera: welcome back
    Pema Pera: Fael will soon perform
    Pema Pera: but we are waiting for Hotaru
    Pema Pera: just a sec
    Moon Fargis: perform ?
    Fael Illyar: ccs
    Moon Fargis: hehe
    Pema Pera: well, maybe you should just go ahead
    Fael Illyar: ok

    The performance. Everyone is silent.

    Moon Fargis: :)
    Fael Illyar: /bow
    Pema Pera: wonderful!!!
    Fael Illyar: oh, I didn’t have that gesture active
    Moon Fargis: btw fael you are sadly still ghosted here
    Fael Illyar: ghosted? invisible except for my attachments?
    Faenik: why not?
    Pema Pera: btw Bog, do you mind if we mention your SL name in our blog, with some snippets of our conversations?
    Moon Fargis: no the newer relasecandidates shows avatard wich arent loaded now as ghosts
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: no
    Moon Fargis: ant not as woman anymore
    Pema Pera: thank you!
    Fael Illyar: oh, that’s an interesting change
    Pema Pera: well, I have to go to an astronomy meeting
    Pema Pera: starting in a minute
    Fael Illyar: oh, it’s earlier today
    Pema Pera: yes

    Rajah arrives as Pema is leaving.

    Fael Illyar: Hello Rajah
    Pema Pera: on Saturdays I have volunteered to be a “guardian”
    Pema Pera: but we call them “barrista”
    Pema Pera: hi Rajah
    Rajah Yalin: hi there - how come we’re outside?
    Pema Pera: Barrista for serving coffee
    Pia Iger: I had tea, sake, yet to taste coffee!
    Pema Pera: Fael, can you send the chat log later?
    Fael Illyar: Outside for a change :)
    Pema Pera: nice seeing you all here!
    Fael Illyar: Yes, of course
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Pia Iger: goodbye, Pema.
    Pema Pera: sorry to have to leave so early
    Fael Illyar: See you Pema :)
    Pema Pera: next time I’ll stay longer!
    Rajah Yalin: take care Pema - Namaste
    Pema Pera: /gassho
    Moon Fargis: see you later pema
    Pia Iger: I took a snapshot of Fael for memory.
    Moon Fargis: :)
    Fael Illyar: during the show?
    Pia Iger: yes.
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Rajah Yalin is wondering what he missed.
    Fael Illyar: I guess I’ll do it once more :)
    Moon Fargis: fael: can you edit your appeance?
    Pia Iger: Please!
    Moon Fargis: the i will see you
    Moon Fargis: ahh ok thx
    Fael Illyar: ok, everyone looking at me?
    Moon Fargis: yes

    Once more and then a duet is requested.

    Bogdaeius Bookmite: great!
    Moon Fargis: ^_^
    Spock Yuitza: wonderful
    Moon Fargis: how long did we take fo this fael did you count?
    Pia Iger: How delightful experience for my saturday morning!
    Moon Fargis: 4 hours?
    Fael Illyar: yes, 4 hours I think. I don’t know how long you had spent on the gesture before that though
    Pia Iger: Moon, can you do it too?
    Moon Fargis: ok 4hours 30 minutes :)
    Moon Fargis: yes but i made the gesture for females
    Pia Iger: can Moon and Fael do a duet?
    Moon Fargis: so it wont fit hehe
    Faenik: ah :)
    Moon Fargis: hmm
    Fael Illyar: Duet is possible but there is no support for synchronized operation right now
    Moon Fargis: sure the time
    Pia Iger: Please try.
    Moon Fargis: point 40
    Fael Illyar: point 40?
    Moon Fargis: 7:40

    Angelic duet by Fael & Moon

    Duet finished, several seconds apart for each one.

    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Moon Fargis: wel i guess we forgot the lag thing :)
    Pia Iger: Wow, anyone missing this should feel sorry.
    Fael Illyar: Yes, pretty much
    Moon Fargis: cant we trigger the gesture with a word?
    Moon Fargis: someone speaks?
    Fael Illyar: That’s why some code to synchronize things would be necessary
    Pia Iger: what lag? I have no techincal clue.
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: Pray
    Bogdaeius Bookmite: afk

    After this Bogdaeius soon vanished.

    Moon Fargis: lag is the time between you pressed anter and it actually happens in sl
    Moon Fargis: enter
    Moon Fargis: the time a command takes to go from one side to another
    Fael Illyar: Yes, scripts are necessary if you want to synchronize things.
    Fael Illyar: Probably necessary to have the whole thing happen from the scripts
    Fael Illyar: if we need synchronization
    Moon Fargis: yes i guess so
    Pia Iger: Anyway, I enjoy it as is. You two made a bell for PaB, now create a PaB repertoire!
    Moon Fargis: or maybe. pia counts backwards and whe try again at 0
    Moon Fargis: what do you think fael ?
    Fael Illyar: if we try it enough many times, one of them is bound to match quite closely ;)
    Moon Fargis: lets try atleast one time :)
    Moon Fargis: pia
    Pia Iger: yes?
    Moon Fargis: can you count from 10 to 0 ?
    Pia Iger: then?
    Moon Fargis: ok go :)
    Pia Iger: 3, 2, 1. 0

    Pia combines all the numbers into one line, which wasn’t quite what Moon had in mind.

    Pia Iger: go!
    Moon Fargis: nahh
    Moon Fargis: hehe
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Moon Fargis: pia.. i think you misunderstood
    Pia Iger: ??
    Moon Fargis: net time .. hehe maybe like
    Moon Fargis: 10
    Moon Fargis: 9
    Moon Fargis: 8
    Moon Fargis: 7
    Moon Fargis: 6
    Moon Fargis: and we will start at 0
    Pia Iger: Ok. got it.
    Moon Fargis: *smiles
    Pia Iger: 10
    Pia Iger: 9
    Pia Iger: 8
    Pia Iger: 7
    Pia Iger: 6
    Pia Iger: 5
    Pia Iger: 4
    Pia Iger: 3
    Pia Iger: 2
    Pia Iger: 1
    Pia Iger: 0

    This time we got started closer to each other.

    Moon Fargis: ha good that was closer:)
    Moon Fargis: we should go on tour with that
    Moon Fargis: :)
    Faenik: ah :)
    Fael Illyar: close this time but maybe more disturbing time difference this time :)
    Pia Iger: Agree!
    Pia Iger: agree to the tour idea.
    Moon Fargis: haha
    Fael Illyar: although, if one of us modifies the scripted part to listen to anyone, only one needs to use the gesture
    Pia Iger: yes. it is a bit hard to be total in sync.
    Fael Illyar: someone figured out my wings react to clicking :)
    Moon Fargis: you are the scripter here fael :)
    Fael Illyar: Yes, I’ll just need to find the prims first
    Rajah Yalin: I think that was me
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Pia Iger: sorry, I can’t help anything on scripts :- (
    Moon Fargis: fael.. i think we should continue this later i have to make food for my rl visitors now
    Pia Iger: Thank you two for the effects. I enjoy very much. I am leaving, too. see you next time
    Moon Fargis: i will be away now
    Moon Fargis: ok see you soon pia
    Rajah Yalin: take care
    Rajah Yalin: Namaste
    Fael Illyar: Ah, ok :) Later then :)
    Pia Iger: bye, all.
    Fael Illyar: See you later Moon, Pia :)
    Fael Illyar: Well, I need to eat too so I guess this is the meeting for this time :)

    I noticed that I hadn’t eaten anything in hours so I took my leave.

    Fael Illyar: See you later Spock, Rajah
    Rajah Yalin: take care
    Rajah Yalin: namaste
    Spock Yuitza: see you
    Spock Yuitza: hug
