    The Guardian for this meeting was Fefonz Quan. The comments are by Fefonz Quan.

    As i arrived at the session, Eliza, Adams and Adelene were shortly arriving. But then i started having communication problems and vanished from the session for a while.

    Fefonz Quan: Hi Ade:)
    Adelene Dawner: Hiya Fef ^.^
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello all :)
    Adelene Dawner: hiya :)
    Fefonz Quan: hey adams :)
    Adams Rubble: hello Adelene, fefonz and Eliza :)
    Fefonz Quan: Hey eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Everyone well I hope
    Adelene Dawner: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Fefonz Quan: waking slowly :)
    Adams Rubble missing something :)
    Fefonz Quan nods to squee
    Eliza Madrigal: Hmm
    Eliza Madrigal: Missing something Adams?
    Adams Rubble: hehe. I see... the ability to read
    Adams Rubble: Yes I am well...and you?
    Eliza Madrigal: hahha...oh
    Adams Rubble: I read Fefonz's reply as "walking slowly"
    Adams Rubble: whoops
    Eliza Madrigal: I did also at first!
    Adams Rubble: he is gone

    The typing animation brings thoughts about chat communication and typing "body language"

    Eliza Madrigal: Now I remember why I stopped the typing animation...often start thoughts and then wipe them away
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble: It actually is nice to see...often shows someone is thinking :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes, generally I like it...with me I think can be a distraction for others...half starts, etc
    Adams Rubble: no distraction at all :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble: It separates the thoughtful people from the impulsive people like me :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, but better just to let it flow sometimes///most times maybe!
    Adams Rubble: I am half kidding...often I pause too and change things, especially if someone says something that makes mine irrelevant
    Eliza Madrigal: exactly!
    Adams Rubble: but sometimes, it is just difficult to find the right words
    Adams Rubble: It may be the equivalent of saying "uh" in voice :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, sure. When I'm reading logs, I have all these thoughts and want to talk about them...then sign on and well..not so much :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, yes
    Adelene Dawner: Blogs are good for that :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: This is true...maybe it is a natural outflow of PaB.
    Adelene Dawner: :)
    Adams Rubble: Guardians can add comments to existing logs
    Eliza Madrigal: Hm...which reminds me that there is alog from the other day posted that has the name/momentary chat of someone who popped in and out....should edit that right?
    Adams Rubble: We usually do but now we have recording signs all over the place and it is less important to do so
    Adams Rubble: Hello Chiaiu
    Eliza Madrigal: It was the day you Adams, Pema, and I were here. I have to learn these things and choose a date I guess.
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, good.
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Chiaiu
    Adams Rubble: Do you mean take a sesssion Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes....it is that my schedule keeps changing...life in flux....so I've hesitated
    Adams Rubble: One way to get started is to fill in for people when they email they can't make it
    Eliza Madrigal: Okay, good idea :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I was reading the logs on arising and ethics....fun
    Adams Rubble: Hmm. not sure which one that was but I am reading past logs for the Chronicles
    Adams Rubble: try to keep up with the new ones but it is hard sometimes
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm sure! I'd love to dig into way earlier...have only skipped around
    Adams Rubble: Lots of reading...almost 1500 logs now
    Eliza Madrigal: Wow! Love the rhythms...how slowly things seem and then dive deep
    Adams Rubble: If one reads almost all day it takes two days to read through a month
    Adams Rubble: :)

    I also sent an email asking for someone to grab the log if i am unable to get back in-world. The participants use the opportunity to learn how to claim the logger.

    Adelene Dawner: Emnail from Fef: looks like one of us is going to have to grab the log for him.
    Adams Rubble: Should we draw straws. hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: Maybe I should learn now?
    Adams Rubble: Claiming is easy. just touch the little triangular thingy in the fountain
    Adams Rubble: and then choose claim
    Eliza Madrigal: And posting? I should register at the site, etc...is easy?
    Adams Rubble: The link we will be emailed to you then a little after the session is open
    Adams Rubble: You have to log in at the site first
    Adams Rubble: then go to the chat log page for March...called "03"
    Adams Rubble: There you click the "new page" tab
    Adams Rubble: and paste it in
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah...let me register. I need to do that before I can claim a session?
    Adams Rubble: Then you add a name for the title to the number part

    Finally i get back

    Eliza Madrigal: Fefonz! Wb
    Adams Rubble: Wol has to add you if you are not there already
    Adams Rubble: Hi Fefonz. wb
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm only on email
    Adams Rubble: That makes all this a moot point. hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Fefonz Quan: Hi all :)
    Adams Rubble: Wol might have added you alrready though
    Fefonz Quan: sorry for the vanishing
    Adams Rubble: wb Chiaiu
    Eliza Madrigal: Quite alright, and wb Chiaiu also
    Adams Rubble: not your fault fefonz :)
    Fefonz Quan: was fighting to restore connection for the last 20 min
    Eliza Madrigal: =/
    Chiaiu Chiung: hi everzone
    Adams Rubble: Now if you were just leaving us in a huff that might be different. hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: haha
    Fefonz Quan: hey CHIAIU
    Adams Rubble: or a minute and a huff
    Adams Rubble practices her Groucho
    Fefonz Quan: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I'll take two beers too
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: Hi Steve :)
    Fefonz Quan: hi steve :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello Steve
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi, we all hear to rescue the log?
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Adams Rubble: Some of never left :)
    Adams Rubble: us
    stevenaia Michinaga: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: We thought we'd just discuss it a while more...haha
    Adams Rubble: But always good to see you Steve :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Kidding
    Fefonz Quan: yes, gpt back thanks ::)
    Adams Rubble: we were drawing straws :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble: but we couldn't find any
    stevenaia Michinaga: good, I'll hang out for a bit as I get some emails together
    Adams Rubble: so we didn;t know what to do :)
    Fefonz Quan: so did i miss all the fun/
    Fefonz Quan: ?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I sispect Storm hides all the straws for that very reason
    Adams Rubble: only if you find it fun looking for three straws in a fountain

    The discussion on claiming the log goes on, and gets a boost when the Master Listener stubbornly anounce that "this session was not claimed yet"

    Eliza Madrigal: Fefonz, I was actually just asking about the process of claiming/posting the log and such. Adams was helping me
    Fefonz Quan: ah, cool :)
    Adelene Dawner giggles at Steve.
    Adams Rubble admires Steve's footwear
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Fefonz Quan: eas it like a needle in a pile of straw?
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice pants Chiaiu
    Fefonz Quan: was it*
    stevenaia Michinaga: ...grins
    Eliza Madrigal: brb-phone
    Adams Rubble: boo
    stevenaia Michinaga: having some possession issues Fefonz
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Fefonz Quan: just making sure, got a claim that the session wwas not claimed :)
    Adams Rubble: Good idea fefonz :)
    Eliza Madrigal: K...registered at the PaB site now
    Adams Rubble wondering if this session should be called "Not one PaB Idea"
    Fefonz Quan: (fefonz redraws his comment about possessions in order for it to stay like this ) :)
    Fefonz Quan: and adams, at worst it would be called "Not one PaB Idea again" :)
    Adams Rubble giggles
    Adams Rubble: I want to note that I am using a ciomputer with a real video card and you all look fabulous :)
    Adelene Dawner giggles ^.^
    Fefonz Quan using a clomputer too, guess how you look here ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: Well thanks, daaaling
    stevenaia Michinaga: smiles
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: boo
    Eliza Madrigal: Hmm
    Adams Rubble: Listener Master is very finnicky today
    Fefonz Quan: i hope there will e some record of ths session
    Fefonz Quan: (though we try hard that not many insights will be lost then ) :)
    Adams Rubble checking chat reconrding on the clomputer
    Adams Rubble gives a thumbs up
    Fefonz Quan wonders if cloneputers are the way for mchine breeding
    Adams Rubble thinks. Hmm. That's why there are so many around
    Fefonz Quan: interesting about your video card remark adams, reminds me that when TV went to HD channels
    Fefonz Quan: there was a claim that all the celebrities looked worse
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Fefonz Quan: and it was much harder to hide skin flaws in high resolution
    Adams Rubble 's TV has not gone digital yet :)
    Adams Rubble: the new video card takes some getting used to. It is set to too high a contrast and I don;t know how to change it
    Eliza Madrigal: SL eliminated TV for me...now back to 3-4 channels because can't justify paying for something not watching
    Fefonz Quan: good for you Eliza.
    Fefonz Quan has no tv for 2 years
    Eliza Madrigal: I suppose...miss Book tv though
    Adams Rubble: But, I repeat that you all look fabulous :)
    Eliza Madrigal: We're all flashy for you now Adams?
    Adams Rubble: yep
    Eliza Madrigal: (have to get some bling)
    Fefonz Quan: Adams, i guess i would help if i was near your computer.
    Adams Rubble: I can see the hairs on Adelene's chin
    Eliza Madrigal: Hah

    Wol Euler: hmmmmmmmm
    Wol Euler: well, people asked for a "nag" feature so I put one on.
    stevenaia Michinaga: aww, the repair scriptor is here, or is it scriptress?

    Wol Euler growls and thwaps you vigorously with a cushion.
    Eliza Madrigal: ahhahaha...sorry.
    Fefonz Quan: so you think it won't get a record wol?
    Wol Euler: lemme check the database ...

    Wol Euler: bye eliza
    Fefonz Quan: nice. so the error is in the(error) message
    Wol Euler: apparently...
    Wol Euler: though the claim doesn't actually have anything to do with the database itself.

    Wol Euler smiles modestly
    Adelene Dawner is amused to see that her original twisted pyramid shape was retained, though ^.^
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: I certainly had no better idea!
    Fefonz Quan: pyramids last forever, don't you know?
    Adelene Dawner: *chuckle*
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Wol Euler: and they keep the scripts they contain shiny and sharp-edged
    Adelene Dawner: hehe
    Fefonz Quan: yep
    Fefonz Quan: wouldn't like to fall on that sharp edge
    Fefonz Quan: HaH1
    Wol Euler: I htihk I have a fix, but I have to stop the session to test it
