    The Guardian for this meeting was Fael Illyar. The comments are by Fael Illyar.

    Wester was there when I arrived.

    Fael Illyar: Hi Wester :)
    Fael Illyar: Selling things is a lot of work :) Took me one day to make this flower in my hair and 3 days to get it ready for being sold in my shop :)
    Wester Kiranov: so what did you have to do apart from making it?
    Fael Illyar: product picture :)
    Wester Kiranov: ah. it looks nice, both the flower and the picture
    Fael Illyar smiles 'Thank you.'
    Fael Illyar: not fulltime days of course but still :)
    Fael Illyar: I perhaps do put a bit too much time into making the product pictures :)
    Fael Illyar: ah right, I brought the flower here to be the appearance of autorecorder too earlier :)
    Fael Illyar: when I got the flower itself made :)
    Wester Kiranov: I think it does look attractive, the picture
    Wester Kiranov: i was going to ask if those flowers were related :-)
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Fael Illyar: Yes they are :)
    Fael Illyar: Ah, reminds me that I still haven't made the color change script so the recorder could indicate it's status by it's color.
    Wester Kiranov: wow. that sounds cooul.
    Wester Kiranov: *cool
    Fael Illyar: I like making things beautiful :)
    Fael Illyar: simplicity :)
    Fael Illyar: So, how are you?
    Wester Kiranov: I'm fine. You?
    Fael Illyar: I'm great :)
    Fael Illyar: More and more able to do what I wish to do. It's funny how you can get afraid of doing that.
    Wester Kiranov: that does sound great
    Fael Illyar: Just now... I beginning to find much more things to do than time for :)
    Fael Illyar: My shop is finally starting to look not empty :)
    Wester Kiranov: you filled it with flowers? ;-)
    Fael Illyar: well, that too :)
    Fael Illyar: but I now have products lining up 3 of the 4 sides of the shop :)
    Wester Kiranov: what kind of products?
    Fael Illyar: tattoo, 2 wings, this flower, hug from behind animation, a marketing device, some freebies.
    Fael Illyar: yes, they're big posters :P
    Wester Kiranov: lovely
    Wester Kiranov: it's weird that in SL there are either no fake tattoos or no real ones, depending on how you see it
    Fael Illyar smiles 'Yes, they're all real or fake, depending on your viewpoint.'
    Fael Illyar: well, that's what it means when you can freely switch skin in SL :)
    Wester Kiranov: :)
    Fael Illyar: Ah right, now my shops name sort of makes sense too :)
    Fael Illyar: I finally have something that everyone understands to be a blossom :P
    Wester Kiranov: :)
    Fael Illyar: BookMoocher ... is that a tag from a public group in SL or your own?
    Wester Kiranov: it's a public group, but not a very active one here in SL
    Wester Kiranov: however, it is very active in RL. it's a bookswapping site
    Fael Illyar: Ah, I see :)
    Fael Illyar: that sounds quite useful :)
    Wester Kiranov: if you want your house swamped in book, yes. people think it will get them less books but it usually gets you more books in the end
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Wester Kiranov: http://www.bookmooch.com/m/bio/wester
    Fael Illyar: ah that requres user account there it appears.
    Fael Illyar: oh... it opened something even when I canceled
    Wester Kiranov: sorry. take out the m
    Wester Kiranov: http://www.bookmooch.com/bio/wester
    Fael Illyar: it did it automatically when I canceled the login :)
    Fael Illyar: you've done a lot of swapping of books :)
    Wester Kiranov: yes, i'm slightly addicted
    Wester Kiranov: i just love the clunk of a book falling on my doormat
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Wester Kiranov: and then unwrapping and reading
    Fael Illyar: I used to read a lot before I found SL... now what I read depends a lot on what people say in chat or IMs here. Although, occasionally it means reading an article someone gives me a link to :)
    Fael Illyar: but it was mostly fiction, what I read :)
    Wester Kiranov: I do read more since I found BookMooch. And I cook better, I get loads of cookbooks
    Wester Kiranov: but by to be read pile does get very BIG
    Fael Illyar: cookbooks help, if you have the patience to look through them to find a recipe you like and then to buy the ingredients :)
    Wester Kiranov: I get the ingredients, and then I look in the index :)
    Fael Illyar: oh, there are ways to find recipes from the book that match what you have?
    Fael Illyar: without flipping through every page?
    Wester Kiranov: usually, if you look up cauliflower in the index, it will give you the recipes with cauliflower ;)
    Fael Illyar: yes, naturally... what I'd be interested in finding is recipes I actually have all the ingredients for :P
    Fael Illyar: that usually isn't the case
    Wester Kiranov: although I am getting so many cookbooks that I think "I had a recipe like this" and then I can't find it anymore
    Wester Kiranov: then I have to improvise
    Fael Illyar: well, the end result of quitting cookbooks for me was that I just started improvising :)
    Wester Kiranov: i did cook without books for quite a while, but cookbooks sometimes have original ideas
    Fael Illyar: Ah yes, naturally :)
    Fael Illyar: my own ideas have come from ... hmm... well, it's been a while since I got any, I rarely eat out anymore.
    Wester Kiranov: i have some favorite cook blogs too
    Fael Illyar: Ah yes, I've used google to find recipes for some foods I know by name but don't know how to mae
    Fael Illyar: ma<ke>
    Fael Illyar: I find several of them and then I have a rough idea what can be improvised with :)
    Fael Illyar: usually none of them are possible as is, I have to combine :P
    Wester Kiranov: the problem with googling recipes I find is that you don't really know the style of this particular cook. They might like things over- or undercooked
    Wester Kiranov: but it is good for really standard recipes
    Fael Illyar: well, true, but you do get some variation in the recipes, if you're not unlucky, you can guess what means under or overcooked :)
    Fael Illyar: ah, but brb, nature calls :=
    Fael Illyar: back :)
    Wester Kiranov: wb:)
    Wester Kiranov: I'm sorry, I have to leave pretty soon
    Fael Illyar: That's fine, I was thinking of leaving in a moment too :)
    Wester Kiranov: see you then. bye!
    Fael Illyar: See you later, Wester :)
    Wester Kiranov: namaste</ke>

    With that, the meeting ended.
