    Wol Euler was guardian for this session.


    I arrived to find Calvino dismantling the Listener, trying to spot differences between ours (which mostly works) and the ought-to-have-been-a-duplicate of it which he is installing for another group.


    Wol Euler: hello calvino
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi wol


    Calvino Rabeni: Well how is work :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Or escape therefrom?
    Wol Euler: getting better, and getting towards the end, but not done yet.
    Wol Euler: we're a week and a half behind schedule and the building work onsite is catching up to us
    Wol Euler: which is bad because it means we don't have time to check and test and re-consider
    Wol Euler: but have to release our ideas and might-be-a-solution's practically untested to be poured in concrete.
    Calvino Rabeni: !
    Wol Euler: yeah.
    Calvino Rabeni: Well I like concrete as well as the next guy, but that sounds like folly :)
    Wol Euler: it is.
    Wol Euler: but letting twenty men stand around on the site with no work to do is an even worse one.
    Wol Euler shrugs.
    Wol Euler: how are you?
    Calvino Rabeni: 99.999% excellent
    Wol Euler: wow.
    Wol Euler: congratulations.
    Wol Euler: where's the sixth nine?
    Calvino Rabeni: The 0.001% is what really gets me :)
    Wol Euler: and that is?
    Calvino Rabeni: a blister on one typing finger
    Wol Euler laughs.
    Wol Euler: oh dear.
    Calvino Rabeni: causing lopsided typing
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Wol Euler: it's amazing how strong and wide-reaching an effect something like that can have
    Wol Euler: it throws you completely off your stride
    Calvino Rabeni: yes it is so evident
    Wol Euler: on the other hand, if that is the extent of your worries right now ... :)
    Calvino Rabeni: other than being on the slippery slope to oblivion, sure :)
    Wol Euler: well, yes, there is always that.


    Calvino Rabeni: Meanwhile, I have been trying to catch one of these butterflies
    Wol Euler grins.
    Calvino Rabeni: They should be programmed to say
    Calvino Rabeni: Am I a butterfly dreaming I am a "Wol Euler"?
    Calvino Rabeni: ... or whatever the name of the av who touches it
    Wol Euler: heheheheh
    Wol Euler: htat would be good
    Wol Euler: sneaky little buggers, aren't they?
    Wol Euler: even harder to catch than real ones.
    Calvino Rabeni: True
    Wol Euler: ok, we've been here half an hour and it looks like nobody else is coming, let's go and have a look at your listener
