    The Guardian for this meeting was Riddle Sideways. The comments are by Riddle Sideways, who finds it hard to believe that the topic of today was thought up ahead and actually implimented.  Almost like a lesson plan, but not

    Qt Core: Hi Yak
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi riddle,qt :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi QT

    Riddle Sideways: Easy to drift off with a purring cat on lap
    Riddle Sideways: she insists on being petted with both hands
    Riddle Sideways is thinking of lots of songs with "Drift Away" in the lyrics
    Riddle Sideways: or songs by the Drifters
    From Continental Drift and floatsum to...
    Riddle Sideways: Most of my morning has been thinking about 'Spin'
    Riddle Sideways: the Spin we/they put on things

    Riddle Sideways: BTW - how did you get your av to be the box?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Riddle Sideways: NP, we are all really chatting to the boxes on our desks (or laps)
    Qt Core: just wearing a free av somewhere several month ago, it is not my work
    Qt Core: forgot "i got"
    Riddle Sideways: is ok
    Riddle Sideways: in fact there are things I would say to a box that I might not say to a monk
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i still think you should use borg cube textures :)
    Riddle Sideways: textures would change the spin a lot
    Riddle Sideways: would talk to a borg different then wood
    Qt Core: (planning about it, i'm not a builder, have to try it and there stil are the no trans/no mod pieces)

    Riddle Sideways: we are still out here
    Riddle Sideways: but your/my/our attitudes shift/spin
    Riddle Sideways: dependent on Point of View
    Riddle Sideways: When you flip open/on your phone and see a pink heart smiling at you
    Riddle Sideways: does it change how you yell at the person you are calling?
    Qt Core: i would ask who is the owner
    Riddle Sideways: ah, good question
    Riddle Sideways: it is your phone... what do you put on the hello screen?
    Riddle Sideways: ooooo that was a good exercise...
