    Calvino Rabeni: This vendor was unethical or made a mistake. I guess U get caught sometime in SL

    Wol Euler: O.O

    Wol Euler: log in to the SL website, with your username, and check your transaction record. If it is wrong, copy that and IM it to the store owner

    Wol Euler: they should refund the difference

    Calvino Rabeni: I clicked for info - and it said "you just bought..." for big $L

    Calvino Rabeni: Then I clicked Cancel, but it did not cancel

    Tarmel Udimo: yes that happened to me with a translator I bought

    Calvino Rabeni: What are some defining characteristics of geek-hood?

    Alfred Kelberry: glasses :P

    Wol Euler: infinite curiosity

    Alfred Kelberry: tada!

    Alfred Kelberry: wol is sophisticated, as usual :)

    Tarmel Udimo: yes

    Wol Euler: hehehehe

    Tarmel Udimo: BRB

    Alfred Kelberry: must be another characteristics :)

    Calvino Rabeni: A kind of do-it-yourself attitude

    Alfred Kelberry: why are you talking about geeks?

    Calvino Rabeni: Geeks are also very self-referential :)

    Wol Euler: mmhmm

    Wol Euler: yes, very much so.

    Wol Euler: and an oddity: we hate to do dull and repetitive work if we can see no point in it

    Calvino Rabeni: Got better things to do, we think

    Wol Euler: but will be happy to sit for two hours doing the same thing over and over in order to understand something

    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, not dull and repetitive to *us*

    Calvino Rabeni: Capable of obsessive behavior

    Wol Euler: mmhmm, learning is good, and what you do to learn is treated as good.

    Calvino Rabeni: will never stop learning

    Calvino Rabeni: caffeine is the drug of choice

    Wol Euler: yep!

    Alfred Kelberry: also, someone who'd read about power grids in bed before sleep :)

    Calvino Rabeni: :) :)

    Wol Euler: no drugs, seldom alcohol

    Wol Euler: and yes, alf, that too

    Alfred Kelberry giggles

    Wol Euler: we are curious about *everything*, we will read *anything*

    Calvino Rabeni: Yes

    Calvino Rabeni: Even likes steve martin

    Alfred Kelberry: quite fascinating all those transformers and volts

    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe male vs female differences as children

    Calvino Rabeni: Male ones at least, loved to take machines apart

    Wol Euler nods

    Wol Euler: tinkering :)

    Alfred Kelberry: wol, em.. i don't like to read about medical stuff, biology and chemistry on low level

    Calvino Rabeni: Not if it is about something contagious

    Wol Euler: heheheh

    Wol Euler: another characteristic: squeamish

    Calvino Rabeni: Possible hypochondriasis

    Calvino Rabeni: and knows words like that

    Wol Euler: *collects* words like that

    Calvino Rabeni: Probably above-average vocabularies

    Alfred Kelberry: crap, i didn't know this one, wol

    Calvino Rabeni: that is "geek" for squeamish

    Wol Euler: :)

    Alfred Kelberry: anyhow, keep the workshop in mind, please :)

    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni wonders about the name "Wol"

    Wol Euler: comes from Winnie the Pooh :)

    Calvino Rabeni: if uber-geek, it stands for "web ontology language"

    Wol Euler: and "Eule" is German for owl.

    Calvino Rabeni: A bird with insomnia :)

    Alfred Kelberry: no, it's from wall-e :)

    Calvino Rabeni: Ah, quite an excellent name by all accounts

    Wol Euler: so I'm another owl named Wol :)

    Wol Euler: please continue, I've claimed the session. Bye for now, enjoy the day.

    Wol Euler: calvino, get some sleep.

    Alfred Kelberry: so, euler would be?

    Calvino Rabeni: Poof as they go

    Calvino Rabeni: And I am to get some sleep, under advisement

    Alfred Kelberry: well, you can start your monologue if you like, cal :)

    Calvino Rabeni: I am leaving for the week-end tomorrow, so, no monologue tonight


    Alfred Kelberry: it's funny... you're alone, saying things out loud, but someone, somewhere reading them. maybe the same happens when we're alone in our homes.

    Alfred Kelberry: ah, sounds like fun

    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, it could be someone in the year 2060 also

    Alfred Kelberry: enjoy it, cal

    Calvino Rabeni: Good day!
