    Threedee was the guardian for the evening. The log was posted by Adelene, and the comments are hers.


    Threedee, doug, and Maxine were already at the pavilion when I arrived.

    Bell: *ding*
    doug Sosa: hmm? I wonder what he will say?
    Maxine Walden: oh, here comes a flying lion, Adelene
    doug Sosa: i wish i cou;d turn on the cushion.
    Maxine Walden: yes, I feel that way too,
    Maxine Walden: I can turn my camera but not my av
    Threedee Shepherd: doug, rez already!
    doug Sosa: i think i'll move over one and see if that helps.
    doug Sosa: aren't i rexed? still in my grey sweats?
    Maxine Walden: still the man in grey but with blue trousers
    Maxine Walden: amidst whitish lions
    doug Sosa: least i'm not naked.
    doug Sosa: feel vulnerable, a lion, a lion-like, and a lady.
    Adelene Dawner chuckles.
    Maxine Walden: a triad to be vulnerable amidst?
    doug Sosa: yes!
    Maxine Walden: Not sure what to say...feels pretty quiet over in this corner
    Threedee Shepherd: Well doug, we can "hear" you even if your Av is ephemeral, np.
    doug Sosa: interesting i seem normal to myself.
    Maxine Walden: I had that come up the other day, when some saw Adams and I sharing a cushion and both Adams and I saw that we were on separate cushions...different viewpoints?
    Threedee Shepherd: slow update of client side, more likely
    Maxine Walden: ah...
    doug Sosa: anythingi can do to speed it up?
    Threedee Shepherd: probably need to reboot
    doug Sosa: ugh.
    Threedee Shepherd: Although SL in this version has been acting up lately
    doug Sosa: reboot SL or the whole machine?
    Threedee Shepherd: sl
    doug Sosa: here goes!

    Doug left, and returned a moment later.

    Maxine Walden: see you soon
    Maxine Walden: how are you each? Nice to see you at Princeton
    Maxine Walden: here doug comes again
    doug Sosa: any better?
    Threedee Shepherd: yes
    Maxine Walden: not yet, but maybe soon. Why not stay as you are. We know you are full of color
    doug Sosa: blush
    Adelene Dawner chuckles.
    doug Sosa: what is relly on our minds?
    doug Sosa: "really
    Adelene Dawner is distracting herself from a rough pach RL with a little bit of shopping therapy... ACEOs, yay. ^.^
    Maxine Walden: end of workday, a bit fatigued but good to see friends here...
    Maxine Walden: ACEOs??

    Adelene Dawner: Little artworks the size of trading cards. This one looks like Three: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=13188698

    Threedee Shepherd: hi steve
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello, (rezzzzz)
    Maxine Walden: reminds me a bit of Robin Hood, Steve
    Maxine Walden: nice outfit
    stevenaia Michinaga: ..smile, I put someone else in charge of my wordrobe
    Adelene Dawner: o.O
    Adelene Dawner: Steve is *definitely* not brown.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I'll talk to the management
    doug Sosa: i have tried to change my color but it won't take.
    Maxine Walden: really, doug?
    Adelene Dawner: I mean, it doesn't look bad, but uh, not you.
    doug Sosa: I am white but not dead.
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello doug
    Adelene Dawner: My offer still stands to help you out with that sometime, Doug.
    doug Sosa: that could be very helpdul. When might be good?
    Adelene Dawner shrugs. "I am busy tonight, but anytime, really. In fact..."
    Adelene Dawner rifles around in her inventory.
    doug Sosa: i've found that anytime is the hardest, its not even in my calendar program :)
    Adelene Dawner: wear that, Doug.
    doug Sosa accepted your inventory offer.
    Maxine Walden: umm wondering what is about to happen to doug
    doug Sosa: wow. ad gave me this skin.
    Adelene Dawner: And those.
    doug Sosa accepted your inventory offer.
    Maxine Walden: ah. gifts from the flying liion...
    Adelene Dawner: Yay! Doug's not a ghost!
    stevenaia Michinaga: wow
    Adelene Dawner: Those are just the 'boy next door' skin and eyes, from the library... but they're definitely not ghostly. ^.^
    doug Sosa: can they be lighter, both skin and eyes?
    Maxine Walden: doug looks the same to me, different to everyone else?
    Threedee Shepherd: yes different
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, but you look loke smoke to me Maxine
    Threedee Shepherd: zoom in on him to see changes
    Maxine Walden: arg, maybe my machine is stuck, oh, I like smoke?
    Adelene Dawner: They can be lightened, I think, Doug, but that should probably wait 'till later.
    doug Sosa: i used to be called "ashes".
    Maxine Walden: oh, I see him, browner skin...
    doug Sosa: the ral me is about in between. some suntan but notnthat deep.
    Maxine Walden: you know, doug and I arrived at precisely the same time, same spot, would that have done anything to our appearance?
    Maxine Walden: oh, Adelene has morphed...
    Maxine Walden: is morphing
    stevenaia Michinaga: geees, quite the picky group, cure an albino and we are still tweeking the result
    Maxine Walden: lol, Steve
    doug Sosa: well, i just want to look like me.
    Adelene Dawner: How's this, Doug?
    stevenaia Michinaga: are we all trying to look like doug now?
    doug Sosa: you mean the way you look?
    Maxine Walden: lol again, Steve
    Adelene Dawner: mmhmm
    doug Sosa: i do have white hair i like to think is blond.
    Adelene Dawner: You can keep the hair you have, I'm just looking at the skin tone right now.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have no hair.. and like to think of it as... hair
    Adelene Dawner chuckles.
    Threedee Shepherd: I have whie hair I like to think exists ^,^
    doug Sosa: and i like this kind of textury shirt i've got, but the back of my head looks lke i've got microchipinplants.
    Adelene Dawner: Doug. Skin tone: lighter, darker, or same?
    doug Sosa: like yours now, lighter.
    Adelene Dawner: ok
    Maxine Walden: maybe the title of this chatlog will be 'dressing up doug'
    doug Sosa: I feel like i've walked into one of thise tai slaosn wher hair, nails and .. get a make over.
    doug Sosa accepted your inventory offer.
    Adelene Dawner: hehe
    Maxine Walden: wow, this is like fantasy land, alright!!
    Adelene Dawner: 'like'? *chuckle*
    doug Sosa: the new me. i am gratful though it is all rather strnage for 9 sec.
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^ You're welcome, Doug.
    Maxine Walden: right, Adalene, not like at all, it is fantasyland
    doug Sosa: actually looks more like me.
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^ @ Max.
    doug Sosa: a few wrinkles..
    Threedee Shepherd: Like those white eyebrows, stately looking
    doug Sosa: hm, ..
    stevenaia Michinaga: ade, you don;t ahve text gong on tonight?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I;ve come to count on it
    Adelene Dawner: I took it off as I was fiddling with that skin, sorry - it's back now.
    stevenaia Michinaga: for my 9 sec break
    stevenaia Michinaga: I will listen more intently...smile
    stevenaia Michinaga accepted your inventory offer.
    stevenaia Michinaga: thx
    Adelene Dawner: There ya go, Steve. Wear that. Green's the bell, and pretty much automatic - blue's the 'alarm off' button, and red is to send an alarm to someone else. That's a beta version tho.
    Maxine Walden: oh, great gong!!
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Adelene Dawner: The gong and alarm sounds are replaceable, too - just replace the sounds in those prims with whatever sound you want to use.
    Adelene Dawner: It'll update automatically.
    doug Sosa: may I?
    doug Sosa accepted your inventory offer.
    Maxine Walden accepted your inventory offer.
    Maxine Walden: thanks, Adelene
    Adelene Dawner: I was going to wait 'till I was out of beta to distribute, but what the hey.
    doug Sosa: bell, skin, amazing.
    Adelene Dawner: One important note: The alarm function only works if the target is in the same sim as you. Also, it's case-sensitive.
    stevenaia Michinaga: huh? target?
    Adelene Dawner: click the red button, Steve.
    doug Sosa: someone once posted a bell that worked outside SL, a japanese bell, ..
    stevenaia Michinaga: so I can send the alarm to somene?
    Adelene Dawner: mmhmm
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    stevenaia Michinaga: what's channel 1?
    Adelene Dawner: type /1 before the message
    stevenaia Michinaga: thx
    Adelene Dawner: The script will hear it that way, but it doesn't go into regular chat.
    Threedee Shepherd: So, now that we have been a salon of a different type, any PaB type comments or topics (says the Gardian of the Evening)?
    Adelene Dawner: (and, to reduce lag, the script doesn't listen unless you press the button first. Just FYI.)
    doug Sosa: Well, i need to leave and i'll go check myselfin the mirror to see what this looks like:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: lol
    Adelene Dawner: hehe, 'night doug ^.^
    Maxine Walden: I will need to go soon as well
    doug Sosa: thanks much and hope i didn't take awy from 9 sec.
    doug Sosa: sorry we can't dance out as we came in.
    Adelene Dawner: No worries, Doug. :)
    Maxine Walden: right, doug that was memorable
    Adelene Dawner needed to feel useful tonight.
    Maxine Walden: thanks, Adelene
    doug Sosa: and clear ad, wonderful.
    doug Sosa: bye.
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^

    stevenaia Michinaga: so it doesn;t fade away? you mean?
