    Hey There Fael ...

    Caledonia Heron: hi Fael :)
    Fael Illyar: Hi Cal :)
    Fael Illyar is testing her new laptop.
    Fael Illyar: seems to run SL just fine :)
    Caledonia Heron: that's great
    Caledonia Heron: my laptop does ok, not great, just ok
    Fael Illyar: well, I got one that has a bit better specs than my desktop so that was kind of expected but :)
    Caledonia Heron: sure, makes sense if you're picking it out :)
    Fael Illyar: yes, would've been cheaper to get one that can't run SL properly but ...
    Caledonia Heron: sometimes the ones issued for work are not as sl friendly :)
    Fael Illyar: yes, sometimes not quite.
    Caledonia Heron: I notice the logger is running - is it writing to a file?
    Fael Illyar: posting to a webserver
    Caledonia Heron: are we supposed to keep posting to the wiki ourselves or is it automated
    Fael Illyar: not yet
    Fael Illyar: and will continue the old way until we can be sure the automation works
    Caledonia Heron: ok, double checking :)
    Fael Illyar: yes :)

    An upcoming meeting ...

    Caledonia Heron: you will be in Princeton?
    Fael Illyar: yes, that's why I got myself a laptop
    Fael Illyar: the first one for me :)
    Caledonia Heron: got it
    Caledonia Heron: when do you arrive?
    Fael Illyar: next sunday
    Caledonia Heron: oh, you'll be in town a while
    Fael Illyar: 2 weeks
    Fael Illyar: holiday of sorts ... although perhaps not quite in some ways :)
    Caledonia Heron: there may be fun things to do nearby the institute and likely you'll be in NY also
    Fael Illyar: Yes, will take a look around :)
    Caledonia Heron: yes, there will be so much attention to being all in one place .... might be some type of "phenomena" occurring :)
    Fael Illyar: who knows :)
    Caledonia Heron: I think the board will meet privately Friday then dinner with pab Friday night if I remember correctly
    Fael Illyar: come to think of it, I need to refresh my memory on those :)

    Valgaav drops by ...


    Fael Illyar: Hello Valgaav
    Valgaav Gartle: oh, hello! I thought this would be empty...
    Caledonia Heron: hi Valgaav :)
    Caledonia Heron: no, we are here
    Caledonia Heron: you may join us if you like
    Valgaav Gartle: I daresay if I couldn't, something odd would be going on. are there often submeetings off of normal times?
    Caledonia Heron: we are recording the discussion, may we include your comments?
    Valgaav Gartle: well yes, I agreed the first time I was here.
    Fael Illyar: off normal times?
    Fael Illyar: this is normal time
    Caledonia Heron: ok, we have not met before so I'm obliged to ask :)
    Valgaav Gartle: I was told that the meetings were in the evening, at 4 and 10 then.
    Caledonia Heron: glad you have returned
    Caledonia Heron: the meetings are at 1 and 7 slt, 24/7
    Caledonia Heron: 4 times per day
    Fael Illyar: ah, SL time is what works best for reference :)
    Valgaav Gartle: Oh, bah. I'm only here for the meetings anyway, so I didn't particularly pay attention to said time.
    Fael Illyar: but especially friendly guardian would attempt to tell you the times in your local time.
    Valgaav Gartle: Or, you know, my sister, who got me into this mess in the first place. So what was the topic?
    Fael Illyar: oh, we were discussing a guardian meeting due to take place in Princeton, 8 days from now.
    Fael Illyar: RL meeting
    Valgaav Gartle: Nothing I'd be interested in, then. If you'll excuse me?
    Fael Illyar: sure, coming and going is free :)
    Caledonia Heron: we are here to discuss the 9sec practice, the meeting topic was logistics :)
    Caledonia Heron: if you would like to stay for that, please do and as Fael said people come and go
    PaB Listener Master: Removing "Valgaav Gartle" from list.
    Caledonia Heron: lol, he went!
    Fael Illyar: yes, he did.

    Little babies, big babies ...

    Caledonia Heron: On being, I have recently been observing a baby, it's natural state of be
    Fael Illyar: uh, the new electronics smell from this laptop is making me dizzy again...
    Caledonia Heron: ugh, it's funky isn't it?
    Fael Illyar: yes ...
    Fael Illyar: yes, babies are just Being. Any interesting observations?
    Caledonia Heron: it's very elemental, a learning state, cracking the language code, having very basic needs
    Caledonia Heron: it's interesting that the grace we are relearning to tap is the thing that babies are trained away from - they are constantly taught and actually seem to need structure
    Caledonia Heron: they are inserted into a complex situation with no tools, their grace is slowly obscured by all the ways they have to learn to function
    Fael Illyar: some structure is necessary to be able to live but ...
    Fael Illyar: they're taught way too much of that
    Caledonia Heron: if a parent or caregiver can consciously strike a balance that would be a very positive thing imo
    Caledonia Heron: I greatly enjoy the sort of "teaching moment"
    Fael Illyar: it tends to be a common pattern to teach the child pretty much how to be like the parent.
    Caledonia Heron: in ways yes - it's also possible to empower them while doing the training
    Caledonia Heron: are you around kids?
    Fael Illyar: yes, my half brother lives almost next door so I have some interactions with him.
    Caledonia Heron: he's very young?
    Fael Illyar: he's somewhere around 5 years old IIRC
    Caledonia Heron: 5 is a great age - all the bodily functions are mastered, a time of great intellectual advances
    Fael Illyar: yes :)


    It's quiet for a while as Fael is busy so we call it a day ...

    Fael Illyar somehow isn't having a lot to say today.
    Caledonia Heron: that's ok - you are involved with your laptop
    Caledonia Heron: shall we call it a day?
    Fael Illyar: well, we could I suppose :)
    Caledonia Heron: it's been 30 min and you are busy - it is a logical resolution
    Fael Illyar: yes, kind of :)
    Caledonia Heron: ok then :)
    Fael Illyar: Ok, see you later :)
    Caledonia Heron: bye, see you soon :)
    Fael Illyar: you too :)
