    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Doug
    doug Sosa: hi, sorry to be slow.
    stevenaia Michinaga: no problem, I was rezzing a while myself
    stevenaia Michinaga: certainly no rush here
    doug Sosa: i came earlier from a zen sit, and couldn't get msef out of the sitting posture, so i flew around like aladin out of his lamp.
    doug Sosa: Exit and return got me back.
    doug Sosa: no rush here, but.. the fountain.
    stevenaia Michinaga: Sl has that affect now and then
    doug Sosa: never notied before you said that, but it is pushed and urgent.
    stevenaia Michinaga: what is pushed and urgent
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Pila
    doug Sosa: the water..
    doug Sosa: hey.. just a little push now.
    Pila Mulligan: hi Steve and Doug
    doug Sosa: hi pila.
    stevenaia Michinaga: how is the water rushed
    doug Sosa: well, it comes up because of pressure. no pressure, no fountain. but PaB
    doug Sosa: is to get ourselves awake without internal pressure.
    stevenaia Michinaga: interesting comparison
    stevenaia Michinaga: what is that Pila?
    stevenaia Michinaga: someone's tail?
    Pila Mulligan: I just noticed Arabella's onigoko tail floating near the ceiling and tried to return it to her
    Pila Mulligan: yes
    Pila Mulligan: but Storm has to do it it seems
    Pila Mulligan: ... must have been quite a party :)
    doug Sosa: did i miss something?
    stevenaia Michinaga: will have to check the afternoon logs
    stevenaia Michinaga: there's an "onigoko tail" up in the rafters
    Pila Mulligan: direclty in front of my avi, Doug, up by the pillar tops, is a little pink tail that is the onigokko dance script -- it belongs to Arabella
    Pila Mulligan: she must have misplaced it one day while dancing here
    stevenaia Michinaga: when attached you can script yourself into some sort of dance
    Pila Mulligan: do oyu have one, Doug?
    doug Sosa: nope.
    Pila Mulligan: want one?
    Pila Mulligan: it is kind of fun
    stevenaia Michinaga: more of a "Play" moment
    doug Sosa: no thanks. well, here comes Paradise, change my mind, no, dancing without smells doesn't work for me.
    doug Sosa: ok, I'm convinced, sure.

    doug Sosa: Then my oldst was production manager of the traveling part of the Kirov Ballet..

    doug Sosa: a lazy weekend. i think in a way the aim of PaB is to make everything feel lazy, while active.
    Paradise Tennant: ;)
    stevenaia Michinaga: my relaxing weekend was chasing 2 cute 5 yr olds around the Museum of Natural History while they and their parents looks at the dinosaurs

    Paradise Tennant: hats are a wonderful accessory :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, I always wear a hat in RL
    Storm Nordwind: I forget now I'm in Colorado. The clouds did the trick in Scotland!
    Paradise Tennant: likes ball caps .. mostly mine are chewed up .. blue likes them very well too !

    Pila Mulligan: bringing in*
    Paradise Tennant: you have your own banana trees?
    Pila Mulligan: yep, nice
    Pila Mulligan: yes
    Paradise Tennant: wow

    Pila Mulligan: several, and they keep expanding
    Pila Mulligan: all by themselves
    Paradise Tennant: i have potted plants and look out on a sea of glass and concrete :)
    Pila Mulligan: uhhh
    Pila Mulligan: :|
    Paradise Tennant: very pretty at night .. but no bananas :)
    Storm Nordwind: I do my gardening in SL. So much less strain on a long spine!
    Paradise Tennant: sl gardening is really very engaging .. I like it very well .. :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: can you have scripts to get things to "grow " here
    Pila Mulligan: nice
    Pila Mulligan: coral
    Paradise Tennant: it moves
    Paradise Tennant: triggered by the presence of near by avs
    Paradise Tennant: amazing scripting
    Pila Mulligan: is the pool salt water? :)
    Paradise Tennant: ;)
    Paradise Tennant: I think there is script for everyting
    Paradise Tennant: :)
    Paradise Tennant: a friend is building an underwater park .. amazing being able to wake up in the morning and say .. hmm today I will build a subterrean garden :)
    Pila Mulligan: well, I need to brag about my beach at the open sim place -- it has an underwater meditation place, with fish and whales nearby
    stevenaia Michinaga: I've seen those here, they are amazing
    Pila Mulligan: :) much fun
    Paradise Tennant: ;)
    Pila Mulligan: the whales swimming by are epsecially fun
    stevenaia Michinaga: perhaps we can flood the Sim someday

    Pila Mulligan: Gaia
    Paradise Tennant: you are virtual pioneer
    Paradise Tennant: :)
    Pila Mulligan: I appreciated why bthe folks wanted to keep the ocean front parcels

    Paradise Tennant: always find my legs end up in mid drift .. alittle disconcerting :)
    Pila Mulligan: yep
    Pila Mulligan: the not quite flying posture
    stevenaia Michinaga: perhaps we don't give the Lindens enough credit
    Pila Mulligan: how so Steve?
    Pila Mulligan: for debugging SL?
    Pila Mulligan: they have indeed done that over the years
    Paradise Tennant: hmm and to a real extent ..sl was created by its users ..
    stevenaia Michinaga: the stability of the system vs open Sim
    Pila Mulligan: I've heard Linden staffers scout around the open sims for SL objects and then ban the people using them from SL
    Pila Mulligan: yes, they have made SL stable
    Pila Mulligan: open sim stuff is still quite geeky
    Pila Mulligan: each grid seems to have its own ambitions
    Pila Mulligan: and different prioroites for evolving
    Paradise Tennant: always think one of the most interesting features of sl or any virtual landscape is watching people evolve into who they are really
    Pila Mulligan: some of the most SL-like grids are in Europe it seems
    Pila Mulligan: better shops, more stable, more sociable
    Pila Mulligan: and someone is supposedly about to release a Firefox add-on that allows opensim transitons from web sites
    Pila Mulligan: a virtual world browser operating within Firefox, that is, as I understand it (or, as likely, misunderstand it :)
    Storm Nordwind must go and check something on the museum build, and wishes everyone a good night
