    The guardian for this session was Quilty Bookmite. The comments are his. 

    Initially Fael, Gaya and Wol turn up and we have a brief geeky discussion on the new recording device. Some sort of new fangled gramphone I believe.

    Quilty Bookmite: H Fael
    Fael Illyar: Hi Quilty :)
    Quilty Bookmite: How are you?
    Fael Illyar: I'm good. You?
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm pretty good myself. :-)
    Fael Illyar: a bit tired perhaps though.
    Quilty Bookmite: Been overdoing it?
    Fael Illyar: Hi Gaya :)
    PaB Listener Master: I've been touched by a PaB guardian.
    Quilty Bookmite: Hi Gaya.
    Quilty Bookmite: Hi Wol
    Fael Illyar: Hi Wol :)
    Wol Euler: hello quilty, gaya, fael
    First Fael brings up an issue with the new device.
    Fael Illyar wonders if there should be blue balls over our heads.
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm also a bit tired but that goes with the territoty of being a father. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: Is there supposed to be when we are being recorded?
    Wol Euler wnoders why she has one, then.
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Wol Euler: aaaaah
    Wol Euler: gaya has one now
    Quilty Bookmite: I can't see them.
    Wol Euler: hmmmmmm
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Fael Illyar: I still have none.
    Wol Euler: you don't have one, nor does fael.
    Wol Euler: damn and blast.
    Quilty Bookmite: I switched the recorder on. Shouldn't I have one first?
    Fael Illyar: you'd think so, yes.
    Quilty Bookmite: Ah. I see them now.
    Wol Euler: mmm, not necessarily. It runs on a scanner, the order in which avs are reported is pretty well random.
    Wol Euler: but you definitely should have one by now.
    PaB Listener Master: I've been touched by a PaB guardian.
    Fael Illyar too!
    PaB Listener Master: Recording has stopped, the session is ended.
    PaB Listener Master: Recording has started!
    Wol Euler: there, that worked.
    Fael Illyar: whee! shooting balls :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Yay!
    Wol Euler: but I'm unsure why it did.
    Quilty Bookmite: It even followed me.
    Fael Illyar: how far will these balls follow us by the way?
    Wol Euler: oh, yes, they do :-) up to 15 metres away from the master, then they derezz
    Quilty Bookmite: Very nice. Is it all working now?
    Fael Illyar: well, almost :)
    Wol Euler: very very close!
    I start some techie talk.
    Quilty Bookmite: Did you solve the memory leak/fragmentation issues?
    Wol Euler: probably.
    Fael Illyar: automatic posting on the wiki does not yet work but there is a way to get the log out now.
    Wol Euler grins.
    Quilty Bookmite: I gues only testing will tell. :-)
    Wol Euler: a siyx-hour marathon session might still be a problem, but normal sessions are ok.
    Fael Illyar: problem, why?
    Quilty Bookmite: From what I have been reading, LSL doesn't have memory leaks.
    Faenik loves wells!
    Wol Euler falls down laughing and kicks her feet in thte air.
    Quilty Bookmite: But it can suffer fragmentation.
    Quilty Bookmite: It has garbage collection, right?
    Fael Illyar: Hi Solo :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Hi Solo.
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Solobill Laville: Hey, everyone!
    Wol Euler: not really, no. Memory is not released while a script runs. the master script will run forever. tehrefore ...
    Wol Euler: hello solo
    Quilty Bookmite: I saw that described in a chat but I couldn;t find reference to it online.
    Quilty Bookmite: But memory fragmentation would have the same effect.
    Wol Euler: if you watch the numbers above the listeners, they constantly tick down although no _new_ memory is bueing used. When it gets below 1500, it will crash.
    Wol Euler: yes, thsi is probably fragementation; but the point is that it dones't work cleanly :-(
    Wol Euler: the master seems stable, it hasn't declined in a few days now.
    Quilty Bookmite: Well, it's excellent work anyway. I wish my LSL skills were up to helping you.
    Wol Euler is in socially inept geek mode, sorry.
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm a Java developer so it shouldn;t be difficult to learn. Just need the practice.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles at Wol. nice mode np
    Quilty Bookmite is a geek from way back. :-)
    Fael Illyar is a native speaker of geek so no problem at all ;)
    Wol Euler chuckles
    I realise that we are getting lost in geekery, to the detriment of those present who don't have a software background. I try and steer things in a sensible direction but fail miserably.
    Quilty Bookmite: However, there are people here who don't speak geek, so we should switch to English. :-)
    Fael Illyar: perhaps :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Does anyone have a subject for discussion?
    Solobill Laville: Whatever is OK by me, I have a "geek" translator on this new language HUD I got...
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Quilty Bookmite: :-)
    Fael Illyar ponders if Geek can be translated that easily.
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Quilty Bookmite: What does it suggest for "Memory fragmentation"?
    Solobill Laville: hmmm, let's see...
    Quilty Bookmite: Geek rubbish that doesn't mean anything?
    Wol Euler snorts, and wipes tea off her desk.
    Gaya Ethaniel laughs
    Quilty Bookmite: Not a tea/keyboard moment? :-)
    Wol Euler: just missed.
    Quilty Bookmite: Well done. :-)
    Fael Illyar: good reflexes :)
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Fael Illyar: it takes quite some skill to aim it away fast enough :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Should be an Olympic event.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Wol Euler: no more absurd than some socalled sports.
    Fael Illyar: Well, you do learn after a few keyboards :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah...
    Quilty Bookmite: Yes. :-)
    Wol Euler: "synchronized swimming"? Feh.
    Quilty Bookmite: Do they still do that?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Wol... my tummy hurts too much laughing now
    Quilty Bookmite: It looks so silly.
    Fael Illyar: what's synchronized swimming?
    Synchronised swimming!
    Solobill Laville: Better check youtube, Fael :)
    Fael Illyar not quite up to date on sports.
    Quilty Bookmite: Sort of underwater ballet in teams.
    Wol Euler: an utterly absurd waste of time and water.
    Gaya Ethaniel loves watching synchronised swimming
    Wol Euler: lol
    Quilty Bookmite: They have to smile the whole time.
    Solobill Laville smiles
    Wol Euler: sorry, gaya.
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Gaya Ethaniel: that's why I love it Wol
    Solobill Laville: That was it, Fael! Were you smiling??
    Wol Euler: It#s like Irish dancing, they get points not for footwork but for keeping their upper bodies absolutely still.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Quilty Bookmite: :-)
    Fael Illyar: Yes :)
    Quilty Bookmite: I can almost hear the Irish music.
    Solobill Laville: Just do that in the river outside, and your an Olympian, Fael!
    Wol Euler: /m enods
    Solobill Laville: LOL
    Quilty Bookmite: Are you a Leprechaun today Fael?
    Fael is dressed as a fairy in a green outfit. She breaks into a dance every now and then.
    Fael Illyar: fairy perhaps?
    Quilty Bookmite: Fairy nuff.
    Wol Euler: lol
    Wol Euler: just watch, the manbo will start any moment...
    Faenik: indeed?
    Wol Euler watches, fascinated.
    Quilty Bookmite applauds
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Quilty Bookmite: But what was that?
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Some sort of dance accompanied by German singing.
    Solobill Laville: That was the dance that Fael and Moon created :)
    Wol Euler: ah!
    Fael Illyar: if you can call it dance :)
    Quilty Bookmite: I see. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: And the singing?
    Quilty Bookmite: Was it German?
    Fael Illyar nods.
    Solobill Laville: That was me, I have voice on
    Solobill Laville: No, just kidding
    Wol Euler: oh, I didn't hear anything :-(
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Quilty Bookmite: You have a lovely singing voice Solo. :-)
    Solobill Laville: Ah, ty..
    Fael Illyar grins.
    Quilty Bookmite: Did you have an accident as a child?
    Solobill Laville: No, just falsetto, you know
    Solobill Laville: That is Greman though, yes, Fael?
    Fael Illyar nogs.
    Quilty Bookmite: Very impressive. :-)
    Faenik: ah :)
    Fael Illyar: onigokko
    Onigokko is the trigger word for anyone wearing a particular attachment to get up and dance round the table accompanied by musinc. By the end of the session we are all wearing this attachment which looks like a straight pig tail.
    Fael Illyar: stop
    Gaya Ethaniel pokes at Fael... how did you know that I had it on?
    Fael Illyar didn't know.
    Quilty Bookmite is stunned!
    Solobill Laville: Rats, i had not time to prepare...
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Solobill Laville is ready now
    Fael Illyar: onigokko
    Solobill Laville: Weeeeeee!
    Fael Illyar: stop
    Solobill Laville: Ah....:)
    Quilty Bookmite: OK, I have one question.
    Wol Euler: this wil be another short log, QUilty.
    Solobill Laville: Just one, Quilty?
    Gaya Ethaniel: manbo!
    I am so conventional.
    Quilty Bookmite: Why do the chats I host always end up so boring and convetional?
    Solobill Laville: hehe
    Wol Euler laughs!
    Fael Illyar: hard to say :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Must be my austere manner.
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Wol Euler: It's my influence, I am a disruption in hte flow of Being.
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Wol Euler: it eddies and curdles and turns silly.
    Quilty Bookmite: Space/time curves itself around Wol.
    Fael Illyar: sillyness is Being too :)
    Party Dress AO - Preloaded ZHAO II: Could not find animation '*Luth* Innocence Sit'
    Solobill Laville: About a month ago I had a wonderful one on one talk with Avastu here
    Solobill Laville: It ended in the Chocolate Disco
    Quilty Bookmite: Sounds good. My wife would like that. :-)
    Wol Euler: heheheheh
    Faenik: ah :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Solobill Laville: erm
    Solobill Laville: Chocolate Disco ♪
    Solobill Laville: Chocolate Disco ♪
    Solobill Laville: Avastu is quite a dancer for such a large man ;)
    Quilty Bookmite: How do I join in with the onigokko?
    Quilty Bookmite: Light on his feet?
    Gaya send me the Onigokko thingie. It all gets very silly.
    Quilty Bookmite: Thanks Gaya.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel: if you wear it Quilty then type onigokko
    Quilty Bookmite: onigokko
    Fael Illyar ponders about onigokko music but no one running suddenly.
    Quilty Bookmite: stop
    Quilty Bookmite: Yes, that was odd.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Mommy, Second Life won't work today..=[[
    Quilty Bookmite: onigokko
    Quilty Bookmite: stop
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm sure the novelty will wear off with time. :-)
    Fael Illyar: it will :P
    Wol Euler: :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Fael Illyar: until a few months later you rediscover it and it somehow has it again
    Quilty Bookmite: :-)
    Fael Illyar beams happily.
    Solobill Laville nods
    Quilty Bookmite: OK, I have another question.
    Solobill Laville: I knew it
    Quilty Bookmite: If past, present and future are an illusion and all that exists is fourth time of which the other 3 are merely manifestations....
    Quilty Bookmite: How can I never match my socks?
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Solobill Laville: hmmmm...good question
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Solobill Laville: blue
    Fael Illyar: no, red
    Solobill Laville: yes, red
    Quilty Bookmite: Giraffe.
    Fael Illyar: The answer, you do but not the way people usually do it.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah...
    Quilty Bookmite: Well said grasshopper.
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Quilty Bookmite: Sometimes they aren;t even the same size.
    Wol Euler: perhaps it's just an illusion that other people's socks match.
    Quilty Bookmite: And my feet are the same size before you ask.
    Gaya Ethaniel 's tummy hurts for laughing so much again
    Fael Illyar: good point, how do you know other people wear matching ones :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Maybe I don't look closely enough at other peoples feet.
    Fael Illyar: feet aren't _that_ interesting :P
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh?
    Quilty Bookmite: To some they are. I don't have that fetish though.
    Fael Illyar: well, ok, exceptions excluded :P
    Quilty Bookmite: onigokko
    Gaya Ethaniel finds Quilty rather quirky
    Quilty Bookmite: stop
    Party Dress AO - Preloaded ZHAO II: Could not find animation '*Luth* Innocence Stand 1'.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Mommy, Second Life won't work today..=[[
    Quilty Bookmite: You must be thinking of someone else Gaya. I'm very sensible.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah... ok Quilty
    Quilty Bookmite: Sorry Gaya. :-)
    Fael Illyar throws quirks all over the place.
    Gaya Ethaniel tries to look convinced
    Wol Euler: not identity theft, identity _misplacement_
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm a middle-aged software engineer, married with a daughter. Sounds conventional to me.
    Quilty Bookmite: Don't I look conventional?
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Fael Illyar: no, not in SL
    Quilty Bookmite: Good point. :-)
    Wol Euler: "The true hero is always a hero by accident, he longs to be an honest coward like everyone else."
    Fael Illyar: ... although, I wonder what SL conventional is
    Solobill Laville is always wary of the conventional looking
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Quilty Bookmite: Probably wise Solobill. I wouldn;t trust me at all.
    Faenik: ah :)
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Quilty Bookmite: Maybe looking conventional allows me to get away with more.
    Solobill Laville: Exactly my point...
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Quilty Bookmite: You look pretty normal yourself Solobill.
    Fael Illyar: yes, looks can be ... umm ... deceiving?
    Quilty Bookmite: :-)
    Solobill Laville: hehe
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Solobill Laville is also always wary of the unconventional looking
    Solobill Laville: :)
    Faenik: indeed?
    Fael Illyar looks somewhat unconventional, doesn't she?
    Quilty Bookmite: Anyone you aren't wary of? :-)
    Solobill Laville: hmmm, doesn't sound like it
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. ponders what to wear next time around Solo to give a good impression...
    Quilty Bookmite: Yes Fael. Always. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: Sounds like there's no hope.
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Solobill Laville: You always leave a good impression, Gaya
    Fael Illyar pokes Wol.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. oh ty Solo
    Solobill Laville: It's that Quilty guy though... ;)
    Wol Euler wakes up ahd looks around. is it teatime?
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Cup of Black Tea whispers: Ah!Mmm, hot, and steamy tea!
    GreenTea(Matcha): Mmmhh... enjoy the best green tea Quilty Bookmite
    Quilty Bookmite: Snap - almost
    Fael Illyar: snap?
    Quilty Bookmite: Tea drinkers.
    Cup Of Green Tea whispers: Ah! Steaming Green Tea!
    Wol Euler raises her RL cup to the screen.
    Cup Of Green Tea whispers: Ah! Steaming Green Tea!
    Fael Illyar is having a "break" from tea or coffee.
    Wol Euler: ty gaya
    Quilty Bookmite: We aren't exciting enough to keep you awake Wol?
    Gaya Ethaniel: yvw
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Wol Euler: on the contrary, I fainted from overexcitement.
    Solobill Laville: ha
    Fael Illyar: Ah, so tea or coffee wouldn't help there :)
    Quilty Bookmite: Very kind of you to say so. :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh Wol... my tummy!
    Faenik: indeed?
    Quilty Bookmite: In RL I am eating the solitary apple we got out of our garden this year.
    Solobill Laville: may it be tasty
    Quilty Bookmite: That is after my daughter has had enough of it.
    Gaya Ethaniel: what kind Quilty?
    Quilty Bookmite: A bit sharp but very tasty, yes,
    Gaya Ethaniel: russet?
    Quilty Bookmite: Red Devil.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah
    Quilty Bookmite: First year for the tree so we didn't expect much.
    Solobill Laville: Your daughter or the apple? har har...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Solo... <smile>
    Solobill Laville: ...red devil...
    Solobill Laville: sigh
    Quilty Bookmite: My daughters second year. We expected a bit more. :-)
    Wol Euler: what was taht?
    Solobill Laville: hehe
    Quilty Bookmite: She loves apples!
    Quilty Bookmite: Eats the core as well.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Solobill Laville: that is good, I used to do that when I was a kid!
    Quilty Bookmite: And no apple tree grew inside you?
    Solobill Laville: Well, out of my ear, yes
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles
    Faenik: why not?
    Quilty Bookmite: :-)
    Solobill Laville: That's why I don't do it anymore
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah... entish
    Quilty Bookmite: Shall I talk a bit louder then?
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles
    Fael Illyar: Well, it's about time for me to go to bed.
    Quilty Bookmite: Me too.
    Solobill Laville: Bight, Fael
    Gaya Ethaniel: me three
    Solobill Laville: *n
    Wol Euler: good night all, take care.
    Fael Illyar: Good night everyone :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Quilty Bookmite: Thanks everyone. It's been fun!
    Wol Euler: It's been quite amusing.
    Wol Euler: onigotto
    Solobill Laville: Night, all
    Fael Illyar: Yes, thank you for the laughs :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: has been great ty all
    Quilty Bookmite: onigokko
    Quilty Bookmite: stop
    Wol Euler: heheheh, ty
    Solobill Laville: typo
    Wol Euler: quity, you have a tail.
    Quilty Bookmite: We all do.
    Quilty Bookmite: It's the onigokko thing.
    Solobill Laville: That is onigokko tail
    Wol Euler: oh, I see.
    Solobill Laville: yup
    Quilty Bookmite: Goodnight.
    Solobill Laville: night
