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

    When I arrived, Wol was already there standing outside the pavillion. She was working on the auto-recording.

    Quilty Bookmite: Hi Wol.
    Wol Euler: *scripting
    Quilty Bookmite: OK
    Wol Euler: it *should* start itself in about three minutes :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: OK. Sounds like fun.
    Quilty Bookmite: It starts when the chats are due to start?
    Wol Euler: I'm sttanding out here to be out of its range.
    Wol Euler: yes, 10 ,mins before the hour (roughly)
    Quilty Bookmite: Shall I do the same?
    Wol Euler: no, stay there,
    Cannot enter parcel, you are not on the access list.
    PaB Listener Master: Recording has started!
    Wol Euler: cool
    Wol Euler: oh shut up
    Wol Euler: do you see those messages or is it just me?
    Quilty Bookmite: Sorry, lag problems
    Quilty Bookmite: No, I don't see any messages.
    Wol Euler: good
    Quilty Bookmite: Just that recording has started.
    PaB Listener Master: Recording has stopped, the session is ended.
    Quilty Bookmite's PaB Listener: No longer recording. Have a nice day. :)
    Wol Euler: what just happened? did you touch it?
    PaB Listener Master: Recording has started!
    Quilty Bookmite: not me.
    Wol Euler: hmmmm
    Wol Euler: it#s going mad, stopping and restarting itself.
    Wol Euler: damn.
    Quilty Bookmite: What we software engineers like to call an unexpected feature. :-)
    A bit of an in joke. This is what software engineers call a bug.
    Wol Euler: heheheh, yes.
    Quilty Bookmite: Well, I seem to have settled down now.
    Quilty Bookmite: By the way, thank you very very much for covering my Wednesday slots for the next couple of weeks!
    Wol Euler: gladly.
    Quilty Bookmite: It's one less thing to worry about. :-)
    Wol Euler nods
    Quilty Bookmite: Are you still scripting?
    Wol Euler: yeah, I will be in semi-distracted mode for a while, sorry.
    Quilty Bookmite: No problem at all.
    Wol Euler: gotta get this sorted out.
    Quilty Bookmite: I completely understand. Will shut up until someone else arrives. :-)
    Wol Euler: I was serios about being in operation by the end of the Princton meeting and we need a week of live testing before then, to be sure that it's sound.
    Petepete arrives. I don't know him but it seems he's been here before.
    Petepete Magic: heya
    Quilty Bookmite: It seems to be proving quite a complex piece of equipment.
    Quilty Bookmite: Hi Petepete.
    Petepete Magic: ive not been on for a while =[
    Wol Euler: hi pete
    Quilty Bookmite: Have you been to these chats before?
    Petepete Magic: yea
    Wol Euler: yeah, and the most problem has been the listner, which _should__ have been the simplest.
    Quilty Bookmite: Cool. So I don't need to give you the rundown. :-)
    Petepete Magic: lol
    Petepete Magic: i came before once but i had hardly anything then
    Petepete Magic: everyone was doing the manbo!
    Quilty Bookmite: Was this on Wednesday?
    Petepete Magic: umm i can't remember
    Petepete Magic: i think so
    Quilty Bookmite: Embarrasing. such things seem to happen a lot on my watch.
    Quilty Bookmite: Or when Wol is around. :-)
    Petepete Magic: lol
    Petepete Magic: manbo!
    Pete starts dancing.
    Petepete Magic: hehe
    Petepete Magic: stop
    Petepete Magic: i had to
    Quilty Bookmite: I was about to say I was going to try and keep it all sensible today. :-)
    Quilty Bookmite: But then again maybe not. :-)
    Wol Euler: did I just miss that word taht bheings with "on..."?
    Petepete Magic: :-)
    Wol Euler: *begins
    Quilty Bookmite: Not yet. :-)
    Wol Euler: lol
    Wol Euler: I did it in the guardians' meeting this morning :-)
    Wol Euler: much amusement.
    Wish I'd been there. One day this will fit in with my schedule.
    Petepete Magic: haha
    Petepete Magic: Mommy, Second Life won't work today..=[[
    Quilty Bookmite: Excellent! Did you get many participants?
    Wol Euler: a good half dozen!
    Petepete Magic: wow
    Quilty Bookmite: Great!
    Quilty Bookmite: onigokko
    Wol and myself dance round the table.
    Wol Euler: fael, gaya, moon, corvi, me, adn one ohter
    Wol Euler: lol
    Quilty Bookmite: stop
    Petepete Magic: eh?
    Wol Euler: utterly childish but I do love it.
    Petepete Magic: wtf was that?!
    Wol Euler: onigokko
    Petepete Magic: i want that emote!
    Wol Euler: stop
    Wol Euler: heheheheh
    Wol Euler: quilty, will you oblige?
    Quilty Bookmite: Trying to. :-)
    This is when I eventually discover I can't give someone a copy of something I'm already wearing.
    Petepete Magic: onigokko
    Quilty Bookmite: For some reason it won't let me.
    Petepete Magic: stop
    Petepete Magic: hehe
    Quilty Bookmite: :-)
    Petepete Magic: onigokko
    Wol Euler: I'll give ou mine,, just a mo.
    Petepete Magic: gimme the emote!
    Petepete Magic: stop
    Petepete Magic: copy it?
    Quilty Bookmite: Let me try again.
    Wol Euler: sorry, my inventory is desperately slow to load :-(
    Petepete Magic: hehe
    Quilty Bookmite: Mines fine but I get a stop sign when I try and drag it.
    Petepete Magic: mine is quite packed with random stuff.... e.g a castle...... a coffin
    Petepete Magic: etc
    Musings on inventory.
    Quilty Bookmite: Strange to think that in SL we carry whole buildings around with us.
    Wol Euler: indeed.
    Petepete Magic: hehe
    Petepete Magic: especially a 512 sqm castle
    Quilty Bookmite: Got it I think.
    Quilty Bookmite: Yes, one of the many incongruities in SL.
    Quilty Bookmite: Did you get it Pete?
    Petepete Magic accepted your inventory offer.
    Petepete Magic: yup
    Quilty Bookmite: onigokko
    Quilty Bookmite: stop
    Petepete Magic: onigokko

    Wol Euler: ah, I hav a different kind, it attaches to my eyeball invisibly
    Quilty Bookmite: Yes. A tail.
    Petepete Magic: do you like my laser guided plunger crossbow?
    Wol Euler: stop

    Quilty Bookmite: As you can see I like to dress in flamboyant style.

    In my brown top and brown jeans.

    Petepete now progresses throug a series of AVs that look like TV characters. Some of them display brief nudity. I'm afraid I'm hopeless at remembering the names of most of them.

    Quilty Bookmite: Perhaps we should do something different. :-)
    Petepete Magic: speed,200
    XengineR whispers: Petepete Magic, speed acknowleged: 200.000000.
    Quilty Bookmite: I'm obviously rubbish at this game.
    Petepete Magic: hehe
    Quilty Bookmite: I don;t watch enough television and haven't been to the cinema for about 2 years.
    Wol Euler: oh, let me find a URL about that, Quilty.
    Petepete Magic: ill be back in 5 minutes.... just going to get my UFO out
    Wol Euler: clay shirky talking about the cognitive surplus, where the time that produced Wikipedia and all those other free resources came from
    Quilty Bookmite: OK.
    Petepete Magic: thats if i dont get chucked off the pc
    Quilty Bookmite: I wonder if it makes me a social outcast. :-)
    Wol sends me an interesting article about the Wikipedia generation. I send an interesting article of my own about how we perceive things.
    Wol Euler: http://www.herecomeseverybody.org/20...the-mouse.html
    Wol Euler: it makes you part of the next generation, already here.
    Wol Euler: a cross-age generation
    Quilty Bookmite: Ah. I see. :-)
    Wol Euler: long but brilliant.
    Quilty Bookmite: I have a link for you. A brilliant article. One sec...
    Quilty Bookmite: Well, I thought it was brilliant.
    Quilty Bookmite: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2008/sep/20/fiction
    Wol Euler: ah, ty.
    Wol Euler: oh wow, off to a very good start.
    Quilty Bookmite: I did hear this theory about new technology. Basically there is a period after technology is introduced when we completely misuse it and produce a lot of rubbish.
    Petepete Magic: aww
    Quilty Bookmite: After a while, we get more subtle with it and start to produce some really good art.
    Petepete Magic: brb agen lol
    Quilty Bookmite: Bye Pete.
    Wol Euler nods.
    Quilty Bookmite: Then the next big thing comes along.

    At this point I am disconnected from SL and can't log back in again. Apparently Wol was sat there on her own working on scripts.
