    Storm was guardian at the Pavilion on this quiet and sleepy evening. The comments are Storm's.

    It was raining hard and the rumble of thunder was shaking the air...

    Wol Euler: hello Storm
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Wol
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Gaya
    Wol Euler: hello Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Storm Nordwind: Let me know if the rain or thunder disturbs you!
    Wol Euler: no, I love rain. I wish there were more of it in SL.
    Wol Euler: And RL too these weeks, far too hot and humid.
    Gaya Ethaniel has been well prepared for this moment
    Wol Euler laughs
    Storm Nordwind: yes. Nice to have a storm to break the tension
    Storm Nordwind: Welcome Adams!
    Gaya Ethaniel: Storm - you can't catch me without umbrella again :)


    Indeed Gaya had unfurled a large blue umbrella, though it was flapping incongrously as she typed!

    Adams Rubble: Hello Storm
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Adams Rubble: Hello Wol
    Adams Rubble: Hello Gaya
    Wol Euler: hello Adams
    Gaya Ethaniel zooms in on Adams... 'hm... looking good...'
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: You too Gaya :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: thanks :)
    Wol Euler kicks SL and waits for rezzing.

    We had a visitor hanging around just beyond the Pavilion. Perhaps he was waiting for philosophical discussion, as his profile suggested, and that was the reason he didn't eventually join us. I didn't get chance to ask his permission to include his name so I have deleted any greetings between us. However, our old friend Moon joined us instead.

    Wol Euler: I love the painter's attachments, Gaya.
    Gaya Ethaniel: thank you. could be used for writing as well :)
    Wol Euler: mm, true.
    Adams Rubble: Hello Mooon :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Moon Fargis: hello everyone
    Wol Euler: hello Moon
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Moon. Long time no see.
    Moon Fargis: yes:)
    Adams Rubble: Good to see you again :)
    Moon Fargis: soon i get holydays then i will be more often at pab again
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Storm Nordwind has heard of this concept of "holiday" somewhere...
    Storm Nordwind: So I am looking at preparing our new meeting place two sims away from here
    Wol Euler: ah
    Moon Fargis: oh
    Adams Rubble: I haven;t seen it yet
    Storm Nordwind: At the moment there is nothing there. A replica of this pavilion which I may or may not keep. And that's all.
    Adams Rubble: Ah
    Moon Fargis: less is more :)
    Storm Nordwind: We'll see!
    Moon Fargis: does it rain ?
    Storm Nordwind: "it" does anything it likes :)
    Adams Rubble: I finally got to see Hikari the other day. It is beautiful
    Moon Fargis: thanks:)
    Storm Nordwind: I was reading your blog earlier Adams. A quiet day for you so far?
    Adams Rubble: Yes, very quiet
    Storm Nordwind: Sometimes I write a lot in mine. Sometime nothing
    Storm Nordwind: It depends on the flow of work I guess
    Adams Rubble: I am sorry to say I missed your so far today
    Storm Nordwind: And what other people expect of me
    Adams Rubble: Yes, it was busy at work today
    Storm Nordwind: It is just emptiness today ;)
    Moon Fargis: oh brb someone i calling
    Adams Rubble: Are things quieting down in PaB in general--there haven't been recent logs posted
    Gaya Ethaniel: Storm - could you confirm your blog address? Haven't got to read yours yet...
    Storm Nordwind: I don't know. I have to say I rarely have time to follow others' logs unless one is pointed out to me
    Adams Rubble: there is a conveninet link on my blog and the PaB blog, Gaya
    Storm Nordwind: http://stormerne.blogspot.com/
    Gaya Ethaniel: Think Pema struggling at the mo in general with PaB and other work
    Gaya Ethaniel: cool thanks
    Wol Euler: ty storm
    Storm Nordwind: It can happen. Even in SL. Last night I spent 2 hours voice chatting to a neighbour in Bieup!

    I tired of the ceaseless thunder so I uttered the magic spell. Apparently not everyone had even noticed it was raining!

    Storm Nordwind: rain off
    Adams Rubble: rain off?
    Wol Euler: it stopped :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Storm Nordwind: The magic words
    Wol Euler: pity, I was enjoying it.
    Adams Rubble: Oh, am I observant or what ?
    Storm Nordwind: hehe!
    Adams Rubble: never noticed
    Gaya Ethaniel: is your sound off Adams?
    Wol Euler: well, if you had the sound down, you wouldn't have noticed anything else
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Storm Nordwind: You don't have sound on?
    Gaya Ethaniel: that explains it
    Adams Rubble: not on this computer, no

    I briefly discussed my use of SL at work. I don't do that much now. Though I did once a few weeks ago...

    Storm Nordwind: I have the same problem at work
    Adams Rubble: yup
    Storm Nordwind: I'm not even sure the graphics card at work would resolve the rain
    Gaya Ethaniel: they allow you to install SL at work Storm?
    Storm Nordwind: I am the only one at work allowed to do so
    Wol Euler: lol
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh how so?
    Storm Nordwind: Because of my job in training
    Storm Nordwind: I am a member of SLED - education group
    Moon Fargis: rehi
    Wol Euler: I am truly amazed that companies permit this at all. Except for such cases, clearly.
    Storm Nordwind: So I research possible uses of SL for my company
    Wol Euler: hi
    Gaya Ethaniel: i c
    Gaya Ethaniel: wb Moon
    Storm Nordwind: I have been researching it for two years. And, strange to say, I am still the only person using it!
    Storm Nordwind: I think it more than i could hope for even to be able to post my blog
    Storm Nordwind: Only a few people at work know about PaB. And no one knows about the blogging side of it yet
    Storm Nordwind: I am not secretive. It hasn't come up though
    Gaya Ethaniel: i c
    Wol Euler: do people not walk past and say "ooh what#s that?"
    Storm Nordwind: Well I don't often do SL at the moment from work
    Storm Nordwind: This is from home
    Storm Nordwind: Only in emergencies
    Wol Euler: ah

    Yes there really had been an emergency. Or what I considered to be so.

    Storm Nordwind: Like a few weeks ago when I intercepted an IM on my email
    Storm Nordwind: Someone told me that we had a burning cross on our land
    Moon Fargis: aaand crashed
    Moon Fargis: rehi
    Wol Euler: o.O
    Storm Nordwind: The permissions had been missed
    Adams Rubble: oh my
    Wol Euler: wb Moon
    Adams Rubble: wb Moon
    Gaya Ethaniel: wb
    Storm Nordwind: And we had KKK RP people on PaB land
    Moon Fargis: kkk?
    Storm Nordwind: Needless to say I was online onto SL with seconds - at work too
    Storm Nordwind: changed the perms on the land and removed the offending stuff
    Moon Fargis: hi lili
    Wol Euler: ... and ARed it I hope?
    Adams Rubble: Hi Lilianna
    Adams Rubble: AR?
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Storm Nordwind: no
    Wol Euler: abuse report
    lilianna Criss: hey
    Adams Rubble: ah
    Storm Nordwind: my own fault for leaving the permissions open
    Adams Rubble: The KKK is the Ku Klux Klan Moon
    Adams Rubble: nasty bunch
    Wol Euler: hello Lilianna, Genesis
    Adams Rubble: Hi Genesis
    Storm Nordwind: Welcome both!
    lilianna Criss: hey everyone.
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    genesis Zhangsun: Hi!
    Adams Rubble: I must go now. Bye everyone. Good to see you all :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Wol Euler: bye adams! take care
    Moon Fargis: bye adams
    Storm Nordwind: Bye Adams

    Adams evaporated on schedule, and I used the ensuing silence to check what she'd mentioned earlier about lack of logs.

    Storm Nordwind: I am just looking at the logs on the Wiki. Adams said that things had died off a little, but they look reasonably up to date to me
    Gaya Ethaniel: there are a few logs missing but otherwise up to date i think
    Storm Nordwind: That is often the case when people are busy
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Storm Nordwind: We don't have autologging yet
    Storm Nordwind: I haven't even decided the theme for the new building(s) yet
    Storm Nordwind: We don't have to go with Oriental after all
    Storm Nordwind: New sim
    Storm Nordwind: Anyone any ideas or preferences?
    Wol Euler: or even new oriental: exposed concrete and glass like Tadao Ando!
    Storm Nordwind: yes all is possible!
    Wol Euler: you'd have to include his marvellous indirect lighting effets ...
    Storm Nordwind: I had even thought of geodesic domes like the Eden Project!
    Wol Euler: ah, hello Fael.
    Moon Fargis: hmm say is there a reason why we are still expanding ?

    Of course we had had the Bieup land for a long time. I had filled it with trees and that was all. Now we intended to move the discussion area there I had cleared it again. But Moon wasn't to know that. Besides, land expansion was indeed still going on.

    Fael Illyar: Hi Everyone :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Wol Euler: nice to see you again.
    Moon Fargis: i falel!
    Moon Fargis: hi
    Storm Nordwind: Welcome!
    Storm Nordwind waves to Fael
    genesis Zhangsun: Hi Fael!
    genesis Zhangsun: Like the new look
    Fael Illyar: Not very new anymore but thank you :)
    Wol Euler: ooh, you have a PaB caste mark on your forehead.
    Storm Nordwind: Moon, Pema's original vision still holds. And if we keep on taking guardians and we have other sub-projects, we will still need the space
    Fael Illyar: Ah, yes, I'd forgotten about this mark :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Storm Nordwind: A little bit of Moon Magic
    Wol Euler: ah
    Moon Fargis: haha
    Gaya Ethaniel wonders whether she can have the mark on her too
    Wol Euler: ty!
    Gaya Ethaniel: can i wear it anywhere else Moon?
    Moon Fargis: well
    genesis Zhangsun: Thanks Moon!
    Moon Fargis: you have to reattach it
    Moon Fargis: to the part and then move it by yourself
    Wol Euler: hmmm, need a different hairstyle
    Storm Nordwind: And you would need a posing stand to adjust it
    Gaya Ethaniel: i c
    Fael Illyar: I guess Moon already distributed it to everyone?
    Gaya Ethaniel: mm hmm
    Moon Fargis: yep :)

    Another very long silence...

    Storm Nordwind: May I ask Fael, how your meditation practice is developing?
    Fael Illyar: I think I realized something I hadn't been doing a few days ago but I'm not sure if it had much effect on anything.
    Fael Illyar: Oh and I finally did something about having the alarm on my cellphone.
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Storm Nordwind: Something you hadn't been doing?
    Fael Illyar: I found a wall blocking ... probably emotions.
    Fael Illyar: at least some
    Storm Nordwind nods
    Moon Fargis: hmm where did you found this wall?
    Storm Nordwind: It's amazing how much there is to let go!
    Storm Nordwind: I've been accumulating baggage for years and now I'm only just learning to drop it
    Storm Nordwind: And also to politely refuse to take on more for other people!
    Moon Fargis: "like mud on the shoes"
    Fael Illyar: Yes, a lot of baggage :)
    Storm Nordwind: The shoes had a use for a while. I am taking the shoes right off. Mud and all!
    Faenik: ah :)
    Fael Illyar wonders why it is that just Wol rezzed for her.
    Moon Fargis: hmm then you better do this on open air :)
    Wol Euler: Sl is just slow, I haven't changed anything.
    Storm Nordwind throws his shoes at Moon
    Moon Fargis: X.x

    With the effects of his insolence hurtling towards him like instantly ripening karma, Moon got up and flew backwards!

    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Fael Illyar: please excuse me for a moment, I'll try to jolt SL into rezzing the rest of you.
    Fael Illyar: didn't seem to help.
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Storm Nordwind: That was a spectacular slow-rez back Fael!
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Fael Illyar: spectacular?
    Storm Nordwind: First no hair
    Storm Nordwind: Then bright red attachments
    Gaya Ethaniel: mm hmm
    Storm Nordwind: which disappears into glow
    Storm Nordwind: and the hair, strand by strand

    My lag meter had been telling me it was not server problems but network problems that was causing my slow rezzing. Yet it seemed to be true for many people. I am used to my connection being slow, so perhaps this time it was a problem further afield, perhaps even at Linden labs.

    Fael Illyar: :)
    Fael Illyar: unfortunately, I'm still only seeing Wol. The rest of you are clouds.
    Storm Nordwind: Ah... you are on 1.20
    Wol Euler: well, moe too.
    Wol Euler: *me
    Wol Euler: it's slow but steady :-)
    Fael Illyar: Ah, now moon shows
    Gaya Ethaniel: what did you do Moon?
    Storm Nordwind: I will rebake then
    Moon Fargis: just switched to the edit appearance menu
    Moon Fargis: this force sl to resend the av data
    Storm Nordwind: Rebaking is eaiser
    Fael Illyar: Ah, now I see Gaya too :)
    Storm Nordwind: ctrl-alt-R does the same thing
    Moon Fargis: i noticed rebaking seldom works
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel: thanks Moon
    Fael Illyar: except she's missing hair and some other things.
    Gaya Ethaniel: me?
    Fael Illyar: Hi Isen :)
    Moon Fargis: hi isen!
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_

    The monk from Alaska arrived.

    Storm Nordwind: Isen - wonderful to see you!
    Moon Fargis: isen, i made something for you :)

    And this would turn out to be a treat for us all.

    Fael Illyar: Ah, now they showed, I needed to zoom in first.
    Moon Fargis: stand up again isen :)
    Moon Fargis: and try to atach it
    Moon Fargis: yes! a latte man super hero cape
    Isen Enzo: ahhhhhhh
    Gaya Ethaniel: lol
    Gaya Ethaniel: suit you sir
    Isen Enzo: Latteman!!

    Sure enough, on the back of Isen's new cape, were the letters "L M" and a Java style coffee cup! Isen gave us a twirl. If only his real life internet bookshop cafe customers could see him now!

    Gaya Ethaniel: lol
    Wol Euler: lol
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Storm Nordwind chokes
    Moon Fargis: use it whiseley:)
    Wol Euler: ... only for the Good.
    Gaya Ethaniel thinks Isen is nothing but wise... 'just look at him now'
    Isen Enzo: Thank you very much Moon!!
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Isen Enzo: lattes call!!!
    Isen Enzo: and away!!
    Moon Fargis: wooooshhhh
    Moon Fargis: yaaaay
    Faenik: indeed?
    Storm Nordwind: Isen's secret super power is "The Extra Shot"
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Moon Fargis: with extra coffein?
    Gaya Ethaniel wishes everyone good day and leaves quitely.
    Wol Euler: bye gya
    Faenik loves wells!

    An email caught my attention. It looked important. I had to ask others about it.


    Storm Nordwind: I am just reading Pema's email
    Storm Nordwind: About ESBS
    Storm Nordwind: Anyone tried that yet?
    Wol Euler shakes her head
    Moon Fargis: esbs? a new shortcut for the just look thing?

    I failed to yet the short-back-and-sides reference!

    Storm Nordwind: no
    Moon Fargis checks mails
    Isen Enzo: Latteman returns!!
    Moon Fargis: yaaay saved customers from falling asleep
    Storm Nordwind enjoys the cabaret
    Isen Enzo: Moon, thank you very very much!!
    Isen Enzo: love the cape!
    Moon Fargis: np problem :)
    Storm Nordwind: I love the spinning animation. Where did that come from?
    Wol Euler looks at the time and excuses herself quietly. Good night, see you tomorrow.


    Moon read the email and immediately ventured on his ideas about it. The effect, however, might not have been what he had expected.

    Moon Fargis: ahh now i read te mail from pema.. seeing as enlightened being
    Storm Nordwind: Good night Wol
    Moon Fargis: well imo everyone is enlighted already and just have to be aware of it.. so seeing as enlihted being is like seeing throught a childs eye then
    Moon Fargis: becasue without awareness of enlightment we can only perform some imagined enlightment wich still connects to our real enlightment but is influenced by our mind.. alteast its closer then not even try to imagine
    Faenik: ah :)
    Moon Fargis: wow
    Moon Fargis: all asleep :)
    Moon Fargis: i better stop babbling :)

    Indeed two avatars were slumped over. The rest of us were very quiet, as we had been all through the session. I was wondering about the new experiment, knowing that I could and would have no preconceptions. I would read the log, follow the suggestions, see what happened and report back. Actually I was eager to do so...


    Fael Illyar: :)
    Fael Illyar is just not feeling very talkative.
    Storm Nordwind: Don't worry, Moon, they are away being enlightened!
    Storm Nordwind: Tonight is a quiet night
    Storm Nordwind: perhaps a nuclear explosion is the only thing that would get through!
    Moon Fargis sares at the pab logo
    Moon Fargis: hmmm
    Moon Fargis: one click away :)
    Storm Nordwind: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    Moon Fargis: haha
    Storm Nordwind: I will dowse it with rain
    Storm Nordwind: Well maybe we should call it end of session. And I will post it to the wiki... what there is of it!
    Moon Fargis: ok:)
    Faenik: why not?
    Storm Nordwind: Quite so Faenik!
    Moon Fargis loves wellls
    Fael Illyar: Ok, see you all later :)
    Moon Fargis: See you later!
    Storm Nordwind waves
