    This morning Riddle Sideways was Guardian on Call and has added the comments.

    For the first 15 minutes I sat alone with the windchimes.  RL was being stressful, so the windchimes were a welcome calm.

    Then Stevenaia entered.

    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Riddle
    Riddle Sideways: good morning stevenaia
    Riddle Sideways: very quiet morning
    stevenaia Michinaga: I am attempting to work and play at the same time day, to see if my productivity increases
    stevenaia Michinaga: ...smile
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Riddle Sideways: good because I am doing the same
    Riddle Sideways: I made the mistake of reading some emails about error overnight
    stevenaia Michinaga: I ahve begun to have my computer read me the recently meeting entries from the Wiki, so thought I'd do the same there, but you can;t ahve much of a conversation by yourself, can you
    A great idea.  There are text readers already on my computer.  Just have it read the wiki to me.  I really wish it would read in different character voices for each author. :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: what error overnight?
    Riddle Sideways: oh I should do that too (have it read to me).
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, then I can listen while working
    This section is just RL work stuff, so skip past this.
    Riddle Sideways: oh, a software product I am releasing this week of course has bugs
    stevenaia Michinaga: isn;t the the nature of software?
    Riddle Sideways: I have been so busy with this release that I have missed most of PaB
    stevenaia Michinaga: what sort of software is it if I can ask?
    Riddle Sideways: I was trying to catch up on the wiki postings too
    Riddle Sideways: it is a tablet and digital pen form filling application
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, a light schedule for yourself
    Riddle Sideways: inspectors can walk around (out of network range) and take inspections
    Riddle Sideways: then it all syncs when they come in range
    Riddle Sideways: a boring subject, but very neat tech
    stevenaia Michinaga: can;t be boring to those who need (buy) it
    Riddle Sideways: right, they are thrilled
    Riddle Sideways: no more paper
    Riddle Sideways: no more double entry
    Riddle Sideways: and they can do barcodes, camera pictures and rfid to speed things
    stevenaia Michinaga: is this of product of your own creation or do you work for a software organiztion
    stevenaia Michinaga: or both
    Riddle Sideways: most times it is nice for me to visit subject areas that I would not otherwise have joined
    Riddle Sideways: it is consulting
    Riddle Sideways: an organization designer some paper forms that all members must use
    Riddle Sideways: my client wanted it digitized and modern
    Gaya enters.  i usually think of it as a bad thing that my memory leaks, but maybe there is a side benefit.
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice, like that movie where once you are done "consulting" they erase your memory so trade secrets don;t leave
    Riddle Sideways: good morning Gaya
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Riddle Sideways: yes, each weekend I erase my previous week
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: sounds like a bad hard disk to me
    Riddle Sideways: but enough about me
    Not just being a guardian getting us back into a track, but I really want to get up to speed on this.
    Riddle Sideways: what is this APAPB stuff
    stevenaia Michinaga: well, I;m sure focusing on work while being gardian takes some effort... I was jsut reading about that
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Riddle Sideways: thank you Faenik
    Faenik: ^^
    Riddle Sideways: I read some of the posts yesterday
    Riddle Sideways: and tried very hard to go to sleep with it on my mind
    Riddle Sideways: but, I forgot the second word :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes,, I;'m sure with time and "practice" understanding of this will come
    stevenaia Michinaga: like yogi, the movements are the same, just dificult in the begining to string them all together
    Riddle Sideways: yes
    Gaya Ethaniel hasn't quite understood APAPB yet...
    I personally currently am a meta-me watching the meta-me watch the trying to [understand? play with? deal?] APAPB.  Gaya and Stevenaia seem to be there too.
    Riddle Sideways: I am seeing the ways I am going at the process
    Riddle Sideways: the sentence is a semi koan, puzzle and trick
    Riddle Sideways: disecting and diagramming the sentence as a scientist would
    Riddle Sideways: singing it as an artist would
    Gaya Ethaniel listens for more...
    Riddle Sideways: just being with it as a believer would
    stevenaia Michinaga: seemto be the only way to begin, like a dance with your mind
    Riddle Sideways: yes, listening for more as a ... would
    Riddle Sideways: taking many starting points and watching where we go
    Gaya Ethaniel is groping in the dark with APAPB concept still
    Riddle Sideways: "groping" is a good word
    stevenaia Michinaga: but at this point, reading about it may be the only way to understanding w/o some initial handholding or wiki for cheif guardian
    Sorry Steven at this point I don't want somebody to tell me the answer.  It is the process that matters.  At least for a few days then I will turn to the back of the textbook for the answer guide :D
    Riddle Sideways: I can feel one word
    Riddle Sideways: and reach for the next or another
    Faenik loves wells!
    Riddle Sideways: hearing splashs, but seeing nobody

    Gaya Ethaniel thinks Riddle is wonderfully poetic

    Ha, interrupted myself thinking I heard somebody in the moat, but nobody to say hi to. I ignore my interruption as if I was not there and continue.

    Riddle Sideways: big stumbling block (for me) is putting Presentation and Appearance together
    Riddle Sideways: Appearance as a presentation
    Riddle Sideways: I see a powerpoint
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, what it means begins with it;s creator
    Riddle Sideways: beaming on an overhead screen
    Riddle Sideways: Being made a powerpoint slide
    Riddle Sideways: it appeared
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Riddle Sideways: and I appreciate it's presence
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, should be interesting images
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, just PLAYING with the words
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    As wonderful and funny as that section is, it is now stuck in my head like "It's a small world".  The creator created a PowerPoint presentation and I appreciate that I was in the audience to see its appearance. 
    Riddle Sideways: working backwords works easier for me
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah...
    Riddle Sideways: going forward thru it goes smooth then trips me up
    Gaya Ethaniel nods and nods
    Riddle Sideways: of course I appreciate
    Riddle Sideways: am always appreciating
    Riddle Sideways: then appreciate the presence
    Riddle Sideways: thatz easy too
    Riddle Sideways: now appreciate the presence of appearance ...
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Faenik: indeed?
    Riddle Sideways: hmmm almost
    Corvuscorva enters, sits and clicks on the PaB sign which sounds the loud siren.
    Riddle Sideways: good morning corvi
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: hiya
    Riddle Sideways: oh dear
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Corvu
    Gaya Ethaniel: Gosh... siren made me do a typo!
    Riddle Sideways: should not touch that sign
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: mmm did i do it? which sign is it?
    Riddle Sideways: the big sign
    Gaya Ethaniel: Was fun
    Riddle Sideways: is a trick siren
    Corvuscorva Nightfire snorts.
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Riddle Sideways: when things get tooooo serious the siren alarms us back to play
    Gaya Ethaniel: Moon made that siren IIRC
    After the siren stops, some static starts which sounds maybe like rain.
    Riddle Sideways: new sounds?
    stevenaia Michinaga: is my computer hissing?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: rain?
    Riddle Sideways: wind? rain?
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles... rain I rezzed
    stevenaia Michinaga: a memory leak?
    Riddle Sideways: thank you
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: this pavilion leaks..
    Riddle Sideways: no roof
    Gaya Ethaniel laughs
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oh
    Corvuscorva Nightfire shakes her hair.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I'm all wet.
    Riddle Sideways remembers that it rained here for several days last time
    Gaya Ethaniel: That was me...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hope I can stop this one after the session :P
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs at Gaya...
    stevenaia Michinaga: will auto logging pick that up?
    Faenik: Gaya is a real trouble-maker
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods to Faenik..."got that right"
    Gaya Ethaniel: mm... not sure stevenaia
    Riddle Sideways: Faenik is tooo frank
    Faenik: WYSWYG Riddle
    Riddle Sideways: auto-logging won't pick up sounds, only text
    Gaya Ethaniel pouts
    Faenik loves wells!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Nawww...Faenik is just too cute. *tickles Faenik*

    Riddle wonders when "Faenik The Movie" and action figures will be coming out.
    Time to wrap it up and go out into the day.

    Gaya Ethaniel: I will ponder about APAPB a bit more Riddle... need to gather some materials for excerpts so it's good we are talking about it more
    Faenik: heheh
    Riddle Sideways wonders where the rain drops are falling?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, a slowww step by step...:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I must go now, nice to see the morning crowd for a change
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    stevenaia Michinaga: see you soon
    Riddle Sideways: looks like Pia has gathered some excerpts
    Gaya Ethaniel: Good daya stevenaia
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Nice to see you, Stevenaia
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Be well.
    Riddle Sideways: ok, Stevenaia see you
    A great idea.
    Gaya Ethaniel: I'm making a single excerpt for YSBS, ESBS and APAPB atm
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oh thank you..
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: that will be very helpful.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Pleasure
    Riddle Sideways: ah a noble and worthy task, Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel: Pia's idea though. She's a great project manager for sure
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins. It's good to have someone who likes to do such things, both manage projects and manage information.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Time's up for me. Good to see you both. Have a fab day.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    At least this time I was watching Gaya do that SL thing of her arm going skyward toward the object.
    Riddle Sideways: Gaya just raises her hand and the rain stops
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: cya!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Gaya has great powers...heheheh
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. Yep this time I take it away with me
    Riddle Sideways: bye
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles and waves
    Faenik: bye bye
    Riddle Sideways: I too must go
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye, Faenik!
    Riddle Sideways: bing... time is up
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Take care, Riddle.
