    The Guardian for this meeting was Liza Deischer (alias Darren Islar). The comments are by Liza Deischer.

    Calvino Rabeni: How goes it Darren?

    Darren Islar: hi Cal

    Calvino Rabeni: Ah and Liza too :)

    Darren Islar: nice hat

    Calvino Rabeni: I assume you two know each other :)

    Darren Islar: yes :-)

    Calvino Rabeni: Thanks

    Darren Islar: brb

    Calvino Rabeni: OK


    Trying to find a topic

    Darren Islar: back

    Darren Islar: got up 6 minutes too late :-)

    Calvino Rabeni: It's an early session then

    Darren Islar: yes, 10.00 am down here

    Darren Islar: I'm not used to tthat anymore :-)

    Calvino Rabeni: Ow, that is early!

    Darren Islar: it is a late session to you

    Calvino Rabeni: True

    Calvino Rabeni: We'll have company soon I will guess

    Darren Islar: company?

    Calvino Rabeni: Should we quickly start a topic before the crowd arrives?

    Darren Islar: :-)

    Darren Islar: do you have one

    Calvino Rabeni: Sure, but not one suitable for the log :)

    Darren Islar: ah

    Darren Islar: then let's skip that

    Darren Islar: for now

    Calvino Rabeni: So I'm thinking of ... hmmm ...

    Calvino Rabeni: Hello Bert!

    Darren Islar: hi Bert

    Bertram Jacobus: hello 2.0 users ! ;-)

    Calvino Rabeni: Hey help, we are searching brains for a topic!

    Bertram Jacobus: which topic is it, please !? :-)

    Darren Islar: still searching

    Darren Islar: I'm not very good at this I'm afraid

    Darren Islar: hmmmm appearances?

    Darren Islar: better not

    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe Liza can help you with it - she has good ideas :)

    Darren Islar: hahah

    Darren Islar: but I see you are changing a lot Bertram?

    Darren Islar: is there a reason for it?

    Darren Islar: because it seems to happen especially the last few weeks/ months

    Bertram Jacobus: ah. np. but first : may i ask : are you the liza who is here with us "normally" , mostly darren ? :-)

    Darren Islar: yes

    Bertram Jacobus: ah okay. ty


    Calvino's hat

    Bertram Jacobus: and it´s only my na'vi play which causes these appearance variations i guess - and now i got a call and have to leave for work instantly - sry, sadly - bye *wave* ... and may all beings be happy, please ...

    Darren Islar: bye bert

    Bertram Jacobus: bye liza and cal ;-))

    Calvino Rabeni: :) Bert

    Calvino Rabeni: The "secret" to good dialogue?

    Darren Islar: hmmm, sounds good

    Darren Islar: there is more to that hat of yours then what it shows :-)

    Darren Islar: I guess you packed up some extra brains in there :-)

    Calvino Rabeni: Does it sometimes not cover the head completely?

    Darren Islar: form close by it is really neat

    Darren Islar: from further away there is a small spot that isn't covered

    Calvino Rabeni: Odd, now I see

    Darren Islar: I have that sometimes with shoes

    Darren Islar: eh....liza has, I don't wear one

    Calvino Rabeni: I could make the hat bigger or my head smaller :)

    Darren Islar: well, I found out that if you do one of those two things that your head get really small or your hat get very big

    Darren Islar: sometimes it is not easy to cover up a small part

    Darren Islar: I should leave it like that

    Darren Islar: the only thing you need is a desk out of the 50's and a door with detective on it

    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, the name of this hat is "The Fed"

    Darren Islar: ah

    Darren Islar: or an earring :-)

    Darren Islar: an earring would make it more retro

    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni props feet up on desk, pulls bottle of tennesee whiskey out of left desk drawer

    Darren Islar: hahah :-)

    Darren Islar: only if you share some of your wonderful cheap whiskey

    And before I new it I was in this story with the "Fed" Sam Spade (my advice: read this before you go to sleep :-), it has some nice smiles in it)

    Calvino Rabeni: The door opened, and in walked this Dame ...

    Calvino Rabeni: She looked like her middle name would be "trouble"

    Calvino Rabeni: "Mr. Spade", she said, "I just don't know who else to turn to"

    Darren Islar thinks it sounds more desperate then "trouble"

    Calvino Rabeni: "It's my cousin Jimmy - he's disappeared!"

    Calvino Rabeni: "He was hanging out with a rough crowd"

    Calvino Rabeni: "For a while he seemed such a harmless kid"

    Calvino Rabeni: "Then he got into this - what do you call it Mr. Spade - virtual something?"

    Calvino Rabeni: Ah you're talking about Second Life, lady?

    Darren Islar smiles

    Calvino Rabeni: "Why yes, that's it! I just don't know *what* to make of it"

    Calvino Rabeni: "Anyway, Jimmy was spending more and more time with his face glued to that lap-top computer"


    Calvino Rabeni: "So Jimmy was spending a lot of time hanging out with this crowd at a joint called Play As Being"

    Darren Islar smiles again

    Calvino Rabeni: Ah, Ms. - I didn't catch you name?

    Calvino Rabeni: "I'm Lola - glad to meet you Mr. Spade"

    Calvino Rabeni: Tell me Lola, what is this Play As Being outfit your cousin got mixed up with? What's their racket anyway?"

    Calvino Rabeni: Honestly, Mr. Spade, I don't know !

    Calvino Rabeni: "All I can tell you Mr. Spade, is they spend an awful lot of time taking about 'dropping things'"

    Calvino Rabeni: I've heard that before, Lola. They're probably talking about some kind of delivery

    Calvino Rabeni: Dropping off the merchandise, or something like that.

    Darren Islar laughs out loud

    Calvino Rabeni: Tell me Lola, what kind of business do you think this bunch is involved with?

    Calvino Rabeni: "Oh I don't know, Mr. Spade - Maybe it's NOT delivery. Maybe they ..."

    Calvino Rabeni: You mean, have a case of "buttter-fingers", Lola?

    Calvino Rabeni: "Oh no, Mr. Spade"

    Calvino Rabeni: Call me Sam, Lola

    Calvino Rabeni: "No Mr. Spade - I mean Sam - I don't think it is at *all* a case of being coordination-challenged"

    Calvino Rabeni: "But they do spend a lot of time talking about 'identification'"

    Calvino Rabeni: Let me tell you, Lola - that's nothing to be concerned about

    Darren IslarDarren Islar is wondering where this is going to

    Calvino Rabeni: In this day and age, everyone who's anyone, operates as more than one someone - if you get my drift

    Calvino Rabeni: I could see her attention was starting to drift


    Darren Islar thinking: dropping, identification, more someones, what is Sam going to make out of this?

    Calvino Rabeni: "So Lola, I get the feeling you're not quite leveling with me"

    Calvino Rabeni: "Maybe a little of *this* will help"

    Calvino Rabeni: She took a good stiff belt of my Old Crow and regarded me with eyes that were somehow dreamy and dangerous at the same time

    Darren Islar is sitting at the point of his chair

    Calvino Rabeni: "Sam, if you don't help me find Jimmy, I just don't know *what* I might do"

    Calvino Rabeni: Lola, let me tell you something - I've seen this type of case before. Jimmy's probably down at the Five Bells pub or some joint like that, strung on on Phenomenology

    Calvino Rabeni: "Phenomenology, Mr. Spade? That sounds dangerous"

    Calvino Rabeni: Not to worry Lola - it isn't as dangerous as it sounds - really its just hard to pronounce.

    Darren Islar smiles

    Calvino Rabeni: Don't worry, he'll pull out of it before too long.

    Calvino Rabeni: And then he

    Calvino Rabeni: will come up for air. I know he's not answering your email - you'll have to actually go to his house and knock

    Calvino Rabeni: "Knock"

    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, bang your fist on the big piece of wood in the front wall

    Darren Islar: hi QT

    Darren Islar: Cal is telling us a story

    Qt Core: hi all

    Calvino Rabeni: Lola, I'd recommend you do that in the *very* near future - before he gets into the harder stuff

    Calvino Rabeni: "Harder stuff?"

    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, like existentialism.

    Darren Islar smiles

    Calvino Rabeni: So Lola, from what you've told me, this is a family matter - why don't you just run along and check up on Jimmy - climb in the window if you have to.

    Calvino Rabeni: Sneak up behind him, real quiet, see, and then - make a sudden noise, and when he turns "AFK" then hit "Control-Q" on his keyboard.

    Calvino Rabeni: That should do the trick.

    Darren Islar is laughing out loud, almost rolling of his pillow

    Calvino Rabeni: "Oh thank you Mr. Spade,"

    Calvino Rabeni: NP, doll. If there are any complications, you know where to find me.

    Calvino Rabeni: Complication is my middle name.

    Calvino Rabeni: (1:59 - end of story - another well-used PaB hour :)\

    Darren Islar: thanks Cal, it was really great


    Because Cal stepped out of the circle and Darren isn't a member, we needed to start up another session. I let Liza claim that log too, but I only received one. The rest I took out of what I copied myself, but seem to have missed the last final part.
