    The Guardian for this meeting was Agatha Macbeth, who was up late again. The comments are hers.

    I sat alone for the first quarter of an hour, and thought I was in for another on-my-lonesome session. Then, midway through the first bell, Arch suddenly appeared.

        Agatha Macbeth: Hello recorder, me and thee again :)


        Archmage Atlantis: ello Agatha
        Agatha Macbeth: Hi Arch
        Agatha Macbeth: Again :)
        Agatha Macbeth: Thought I was going to be on my own again :)
        Archmage Atlantis: Hey, never said this is conventional
        Agatha Macbeth: Conventional? Never!
        Agatha Macbeth: Not me anyway ;-)
        Archmage Atlantis: Yea, I've felt like that for 59 years.......but one survives being different
        Agatha Macbeth: Yes, too true....

    (A case of having to, perhaps?)

        Agatha Macbeth: But it would be boring if we were all the same
        Archmage Atlantis: And worth doing, love
        Agatha Macbeth: Indded
        Agatha Macbeth: Or indeed even
        Agatha Macbeth: Sorry for the typos, it's late here
        Archmage Atlantis: Hey. all I have is typos - my young friends scold me for them
        Agatha Macbeth: Aww
        Agatha Macbeth: Tell 'em to have more respect :)
        Archmage Atlantis: Nothing is life is Aww. all is awe
        Agatha Macbeth: Kids these days
        Agatha Macbeth: Well, awe is good
        Agatha Macbeth: Awesome is even better
        Archmage Atlantis: I my mind yes
        Archmage Atlantis: To see the Jonas Brothers is Awesome, to feel the divine is awe.......does that make sense?
        Agatha Macbeth: I'm not sure who the Jonas Brothers are, sorry
        Archmage Atlantis: O, I'm probably a generation off.....that happens to me
        Agatha Macbeth: Could you tell me more?
        Archmage Atlantis: Yes
        Agatha Macbeth: Please
        Archmage Atlantis: But not now
        Agatha Macbeth: Oh
        Agatha Macbeth: Why not?
        Agatha Macbeth: Is it a secret?
        Archmage Atlantis: No
        Archmage Atlantis: It is a wanting to go
        Agatha Macbeth: Oooh
        Agatha Macbeth: Mysterious


    The next few lines seem to echo certain aspects from the conversation in the earlier 1300 session

        Archmage Atlantis: Genders here are so weird, but I feel that mystery is often used as a device
        Agatha Macbeth: Hm, not so much weird, as sometimes confusing :)
        Agatha Macbeth: IMHO
        Agatha Macbeth: But that's one of the fun things about SL for me ;-)
        Archmage Atlantis: K
        Archmage Atlantis: Confusing then
        Agatha Macbeth: People can be what they want
        Agatha Macbeth: Unlike in RL
        Archmage Atlantis: People can be who they are
        Agatha Macbeth: Yes, exactly...
        Archmage Atlantis: unlike in RL
        Agatha Macbeth: You can be yourself more here than in RL
        Archmage Atlantis: I need to brb
        Agatha Macbeth: Ok
        Agatha Macbeth: I just Googled the Jonas Brothers, they're modern!

    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonas_brothers in case you're interested! I'd never heard of them)

        Archmage Atlantis: k back - of course the animation showed that
        Agatha Macbeth grins
        Agatha Macbeth: The fact that they're modern probably accounts for why I don't know them!
        Archmage Atlantis: All those things are human things
        Archmage Atlantis: More than that
        Agatha Macbeth: Truly
        Archmage Atlantis: They are computer things
        Archmage Atlantis: And animal things
        Agatha Macbeth: Where would we humans be without our computers?

    Lucinda arrives outside the pagoda with a cute leap

        Agatha Macbeth: Hi Lucinda
        Lucinda Lavender: hello
        Agatha Macbeth: Whoa, nice jump!
        Lucinda Lavender: learned though accident
        Lucinda Lavender: the e button
        Agatha Macbeth: Quite a crowd we are becoming, I was all alone last week!
        Agatha Macbeth: At least you don't need to worry about sitting on anyone :)
        Lucinda Lavender: :)
        Lucinda Lavender: I just downloaded a new viewer 2
        Agatha Macbeth: What do you think of it?
        Lucinda Lavender: some things seem faster and some slower.
        Agatha Macbeth nods
        Archmage Atlantis: The new viewer is difficult


        Agatha Macbeth: From what I've seen of it, the movement controls seem rather clunky
        Agatha Macbeth: And the layout isn't great
        Lucinda Lavender: can you tell me how to remove the word member from above my name?
        Agatha Macbeth: Yes, right click on yourself and go into Groups
        Agatha Macbeth: Then select None
        Lucinda Lavender: yes...
        Agatha Macbeth: And activate...
        Agatha Macbeth: That should remove it
        Lucinda Lavender: by checking?
        Agatha Macbeth: Just click on None at the top
        Agatha Macbeth: Then Activate
        Lucinda Lavender: gone now I see.
        Lucinda Lavender: thank you so much!
        Agatha Macbeth: YW :)
        Agatha Macbeth: Takes time to find your way around...
        Agatha Macbeth: I'm still learning
        Lucinda Lavender: learning a lot
        Agatha Macbeth nods and smiles
        Lucinda Lavender: topics this eve?
        Agatha Macbeth: None really
        Lucinda Lavender: ah
        Agatha Macbeth: I was sitting here alone then Arch came along
        Agatha Macbeth: And we just chatted
        Lucinda Lavender: I wanted to attend the happy hour earlier...
        Agatha Macbeth: And i found out who the Jonas Brothers are :)
        Agatha Macbeth: Happy hour?
        Lucinda Lavender: it was not possible
        Lucinda Lavender: they are singers?
        Agatha Macbeth: Oh, something to do with Yaku?
        Agatha Macbeth: Yes!
        Agatha Macbeth: But I didn't know that :(
        Lucinda Lavender: Oh Yakuzza was going to invite others to voice chat at 1:00pm
        Agatha Macbeth: Well, we had a normal session at 1300, with the retreaters joining in
        Lucinda Lavender: they talked this morning at 7 and I was hoping it worked...
        Lucinda Lavender: nice
        Agatha Macbeth: Yes, Pema, Eos and Gen were all there
        Agatha Macbeth: And Gaya too
        Lucinda Lavender: I don't know all of them but that sounds great
        Agatha Macbeth: It's Wol I feel sorry for, she was so looking forward to it
        Lucinda Lavender: to be joined by retreaters
        Agatha Macbeth: Hopefully we have seen the last of this ash cloud now
        Lucinda Lavender: i hope too:)
        Archmage Atlantis: back, and read the conversation before I left....well what was there to read
        Agatha Macbeth: Mmm...
        Agatha Macbeth: This time slot does seem sparsely attended
        Lucinda Lavender: friday night...
        Agatha Macbeth nods
        Archmage Atlantis: It is 11 pm here, ..
        Agatha Macbeth: It's 3.56AM here! :)
        Archmage Atlantis: I am suprised I woke up
        Agatha Macbeth: Ha
        Agatha Macbeth: Hang in there Arch :)
        Agatha Macbeth: Are you in the US Lucinda?
        Agatha Macbeth: (Is she asleep too?) :)
        Agatha Macbeth waves to Lucinda. Hello?

    Lucinda poofs

        Archmage Atlantis: No, just gone for now
        Agatha Macbeth: Oh she's gone
        Agatha Macbeth: Ah well...
        Agatha Macbeth: That was a short visit
        Archmage Atlantis: That is what I say


        Agatha Macbeth: Ah, WB Lucinda
        Lucinda Lavender: hm! lost connection and came back in oldest view
        Archmage Atlantis: If I said I was billions of years old, who would accept that
        Archmage Atlantis: I don't

    No conversation with Arch is ever dull is it?

        Agatha Macbeth: Well, the earth is billions of years old
        Agatha Macbeth: About 4.5 I think
        Agatha Macbeth: So life is a comparitively recent thing really
        Agatha Macbeth: Amazing when you think about it
        Agatha Macbeth: And humans have only been around for about the last million of those years
        Archmage Atlantis: 60K I think
        Agatha Macbeth: Even less then
        Agatha Macbeth: But there is wide divergance over the definition of 'human' I guess
        Agatha Macbeth: Australopithicus and all that...
        Archmage Atlantis: Yes true
        Agatha Macbeth: Then there's the Neanderthals
        Archmage Atlantis: My cat and my fish and my birds are human
        Agatha Macbeth: They are?
        Agatha Macbeth: Wow
        Agatha Macbeth: Evolution must have got quicker ;-)
        Archmage Atlantis: Evolution does not stop for us
        Agatha Macbeth: No, true
        Agatha Macbeth: It's an ongoing process
        Agatha Macbeth: What will we evolve into I wonder?
        Archmage Atlantis: Wonder is the word
        Agatha Macbeth nods and smiles
        Agatha Macbeth: A *very* interesting concept

    (Some of us seem to be evolving right here in SL....)

        Archmage Atlantis: I have an invite to a wet tee shirt night
        Lucinda Lavender: I once had a dream in which a man told me that it was a time of transformation and that it would be a little like being a mushroom!
        Agatha Macbeth: Lucky you! :)))  (To Arch)
        Agatha Macbeth: Oh wow Lucinda!
        Agatha Macbeth: Was it a magic mushroom :)
        Lucinda Lavender: I have often pondered that dream...since it is not my field of study

    Perhaps we should drop a note to Maxine or Fox?

        Archmage Atlantis: I sup
        Agatha Macbeth: Dreams can be strange
        Lucinda Lavender: who knows...
        Agatha Macbeth: Indeed
        Lucinda Lavender: it made me think how things spread
        Agatha Macbeth: In what way?


        Lucinda Lavender: what might be spreading or broadcasting...
        Agatha Macbeth: Ah. Interesting
        Archmage Atlantis: There arre a gfew tjings that weem eao to m4
        Agatha Macbeth: Easy for you to say Arch :)
        Agatha Macbeth: (Or maybe not)
        Agatha Macbeth: Well, I am getting tired now folks, it's past 4AM here...
        Lucinda Lavender: I must go now...thank you all.take care
        Agatha Macbeth: I've claimed the log
        Agatha Macbeth: So I'll be seeing you Arch, Lucinda
        Agatha Macbeth: Take care
