    Once again, I had great trouble getting over to the teahouse, with humongous lag. Finally Fael teleported me over, on my request, when repeated attempts at walking and flying failed.

    Fael Illyar: Hi :)
    Pema Pera: yes, hi!
    Pema Pera: great dress!
    Pema Pera: like a 19th century professor perhaps :)
    Fael Illyar: thank you, I’m not sure what it’s trying to be :)
    Fael Illyar: There was a female version of this outfit too but I didn’t like it.
    Pema Pera: did you have unusual lag today?
    Fael Illyar: well, I’ve only been logged in for 20 minutes. I had no problems flying here
    Fael Illyar: I haven’t done anything else
    Pema Pera: it may be my cell phone internet connection in the hotel I’m staying in Tokyo . . . so many variables
    Fael Illyar: you could try turning on the lag meter from the help menu
    Fael Illyar: could be, yes
    Fael Illyar: It usually helps in locating the problem

    At that moment I froze again, so I logged out for the third time. After that, however, I couldn’t enter back in again, so I gave up. Later Fael would send me the chat log. The comments are mine.

    Sky appeared, soon followed by Stargate.

    Fael Illyar: Hi Sky
    Sky Szimmer: hey Fael
    Sky Szimmer: just you today
    Fael Illyar: Well, Pema has been popping in and out
    Fael Illyar: Hi *
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Fael Illyar: some kind of problems it seems
    Stargate Tone: hi
    Sky Szimmer: ah
    Sky Szimmer: is faenik part of you Fael?
    Fael Illyar: part of me? in what way?
    Sky Szimmer: who is faenick?
    Faenik is Faenik.
    Sky Szimmer: oh.
    Sky Szimmer: sorry.
    Fael Illyar: Faenik is on my shoulder.
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Fael Illyar: Most often he picks lines randomly from a notecard I’ve put in him and says them but I can, when I want to, make him say things.
    Sky Szimmer: i see ::)
    Fael Illyar: would you mind opening appearance editor and then closing it? you still look ruthed to me
    Sky Szimmer: is that better?
    Faenik loves wells!
    Fael Illyar: no change, unfortunately
    Sky Szimmer: what’s wrong?
    Fael Illyar: Although, I’m not completely sure if that’s what you want to look like. you look like you’re wearing black suit and white glowes
    Fael Illyar: uh gloves
    Fael Illyar: along with system hair and blank skin

    It seemed that there was something wrong with Sky’s appearance.

    Sky Szimmer: i don’t know how to change some of my coloring
    Sky Szimmer: or look. haven’t been horsing around with this stuff much and don’t know enough to do better
    Sky Szimmer: if you have suggestions, I’d love it
    Sky Szimmer: I was a fox at first. should have just stayed that way
    Fael Illyar: Lots of places around SL have things for free.
    Sky Szimmer: i guess i’d ought to go shopping
    Sky Szimmer: hate to do it in RL and not much different in SL
    Sky Szimmer: but it may be fun to play wiht
    Sky Szimmer: that is the idea
    Sky Szimmer: hi Sun
    Stargate Tone: oh Sky
    Sky Szimmer: Oh. sorry Stargate
    Stargate Tone: I had a same prob long time
    Stargate Tone: no sry pls
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Stargate Tone: U need a skin
    Stargate Tone: says ‘all’
    Stargate Tone: but
    Sky Szimmer: thx
    Stargate Tone: pls take a good look before You buy anything
    Faenik: ah :)
    Stargate Tone: I tried about half a year
    Stargate Tone: btw
    Stargate Tone: I also was a fox at first
    Sky Szimmer: : )
    Fael Illyar: foxes seem to be popular :)
    Stargate Tone: well; that was my creators idea….as I knew that I came to work here
    Sky Szimmer: oh?
    Stargate Tone: and it was not so long ago that I did withdraw from the publick

    Sky must have seen an object appearing, and was surprised to see it.

    Sky Szimmer: what is that?
    Stargate Tone: and thought at first that I wanna ‘hide’ here too…
    Stargate Tone: that I stopped my radio broadcastings
    Fael Illyar: I’m looking through my inventory for things I don’t use myself. I didn’t recognise this one so I rezzed it to see what it is
    Sky Szimmer: oh.
    Stargate Tone: and didn’t give any interwirvs anymore
    Sky Szimmer: so you are talking about RL
    Stargate Tone: yea
    Sky Szimmer: Stargate>
    Sky Szimmer: have you re emerged
    Stargate Tone: I also look now for my inventory
    Stargate Tone: if there’s a skin to transfir
    Sky Szimmer: that’d be cool
    Stargate Tone: that U can get a little ‘better’
    Sky Szimmer: always wanted to have some people’s skin
    Sky Szimmer: thanks!
    Sky Szimmer: can i wear it now?
    Stargate Tone: here is such, which was given me by a very beautiful Avatar…
    Stargate Tone: yes
    Stargate Tone: I dont remember if You can do something with it; modify
    Sky Szimmer: wow. i think i look better
    Stargate Tone: I’m happy that You like
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Fael Illyar: not the worst skin I’ve seen.
    Fael Illyar: quite good actually
    Sky Szimmer: neat.

    Alas, no pictures, but it seems from the dialogue that Sky now had a better skin, thanks to Stargate.

    Sky Szimmer: so Star, you story is intriguing.
    Stargate Tone: oh
    Sky Szimmer: what started you in SL
    Sky Szimmer accepted your inventory offer.
    Stargate Tone: got the call from my called upstairs office
    Fael Illyar: looks like this is all skins I have that are transferable
    Sky Szimmer: thanks Fael : )
    Fael Illyar: some of them are good, some less so :)
    Sky Szimmer: ah. i will check it out. thanks for pointing out my appearance. didn’t realized i didn’t have skin
    Sky Szimmer: or system hair
    Stargate Tone: I also wondered long time, why ppl spoke tht ’she needs a skin’
    Sky Szimmer: i often admire some of the other av ’s flowing hair
    Stargate Tone: and I learned, that in SL people are very critical how the AV lookes like
    Sky Szimmer: ah. i think maybe that is referring to those with thin skin

    Lol, Sky!

    Fael Illyar: there are some hair available for free but the best are not free I’ve found
    Sky Szimmer: i was playing around with my looks. was a bald man for a bit
    Sky Szimmer: no one cared about that too much
    Stargate Tone: indeed; but there’ s huge much differencies with prices
    Fael Illyar: yes, and style too
    Sky Szimmer accepted your inventory offer.
    Fael Illyar: here’s a landmark to a sim with lots of different hairstores if you’re feeling like looking for hair
    Fael Illyar: Also quite a few freebies there too
    Stargate Tone: I myself didn’t mind either so much for long time
    Sky Szimmer: i haven’t been to other sites except for here. it’d be good for me to check things out
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Stargate Tone: but cuz I honour other peoples needs, I started to want to look better for my friends
    Sky Szimmer: you have good poise
    Stargate Tone: but THEY didnt’ ever say bad things for my look
    Sky Szimmer: star
    Stargate Tone: yes?
    Sky Szimmer: it’s late for me. just realized i can’t spell
    Stargate Tone: :)*
    Stargate Tone: familiar to me ?
    Sky Szimmer: yes. our looks are for others
    Sky Szimmer: thanks.
    Stargate Tone: Thank You
    Stargate Tone: yes; good thing to ‘give’, but not as demanded
    Fael Illyar: For others too, although, your looks are what you will, yourself, be looking at most of the time you’re in SL I think.
    Stargate Tone: I also have much to do and must go
    Stargate Tone: but I think I know now, why I was awakened to drop by
    Sky Szimmer: nice meeting you. I’d offer you friendship too but can’t seem to figure it out
    Sky Szimmer: oh?
    Sky Szimmer: to give me a new skin : )

    A couple rounds of friendship.

    Stargate Tone: Thank You for accepthing my friendship :)*
    Fael Illyar: right-click, Add friend :)
    Sky Szimmer: naw, thanks for offering
    Stargate Tone: Sky
    Stargate Tone: before You go
    Sky Szimmer: yes.
    You have offered friendship to Sky Szimmer
    Stargate Tone: I want to say this;
    Stargate Tone: You also share love ‘around’ no matter what U do *
    Sky Szimmer: Thanks Fael for your friendship
    Stargate Tone: Have Good Night *
    Sky Szimmer: thanks Star
    Fael Illyar: Good night Sky :)
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Fael Illyar: Bye * :)
    Sky Szimmer: neat!
    Stargate Tone: stargate
    Fael Illyar: Ok, bye stargate :)
    Stargate Tone: stargate
    Stargate Tone: bye Fael and Sky
    Sky Szimmer: wow!
    Stargate Tone: stargate
    Sky Szimmer: I am exclaiming at the explosion of hearts emitting from stargate.
    Sky Szimmer: what a show.

    Stargate’s exit was again spectacular.

    Fael Illyar: Yes, all kinds of things are possible :)
    Sky Szimmer: Fael, thanks for your friendship. Once I accept, do I need to offer you the same to be friends on my list
    Sky Szimmer: or is it automatic
    Fael Illyar: No, SL doesn’t allow one sided friendships
    Sky Szimmer: ah. so I don’t need to offer
    Fael Illyar: both will automatically have the other on their lists
    Fael Illyar: also holds for removing, if one removes, neither has the others name on the list anymore.
    Sky Szimmer: quick question Fael, I am now the replacement coordinator for the guardians
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Sky Szimmer: tried to get on the googles group list to check out who is doing what
    Sky Szimmer: but can’t log in
    Sky Szimmer: what am I doing wrong?
    Fael Illyar: you’ll first need to tell me a bit more accurately what you are doing :)
    Sky Szimmer: well, in one of your emails you sent to the group, you added a link. can’t remember exactly
    Sky Szimmer: but it was to log in one’s replacement schedules or see the schedule
    Fael Illyar: I take it you haven’t used the google groups system before?
    Sky Szimmer: no
    Sky Szimmer: i am not on the computer much
    Sky Szimmer: i guess I have to sign in

    Fael showed Sky how to use google groups, a good tutorial for all guardians unfamiliar with google groups.

    Fael Illyar: ok I’ll walk you through the registration process
    Fael Illyar: what email address did you give to Pema?
    Sky Szimmer: do skyszimmer
    Sky Szimmer: @yahoo.com
    Fael Illyar: ok, open http://groups.google.com/
    Sky Szimmer: I can register myself. just wasn’t sure if I have to use the email address that pema has or one of my other
    Fael Illyar: you need to use the email you gave to pema
    Fael Illyar: because that’s the email that’s authorized to use the google group
    Sky Szimmer: ah. thanks.
    Fael Illyar: anyway, once you’ve opened the page, you click the sign in -link on the upper right corner
    Fael Illyar: then Create an account now link
    Fael Illyar: it should be reasonably obvious how to proceed after that
    Sky Szimmer: thanks Fael.
    Sky Szimmer: well. time for me to hit the pillow.
    Fael Illyar: Good night :)
    Sky Szimmer: it was nice chatting with you.
    Sky Szimmer: night.
    Fael Illyar: you too
