[19:15] jacque: I've never had great experiences with FF
[19:15] jmo: assumes he can only run audio-visial on one app at a time.
[19:15] mark: Yep, that's me
[19:15] nicolejleboeuf: Hi Mark!
[19:15] jacque: So if I can see you in two applications, does that mean there are twice as many of you?
[19:15] mark: I'm not running a skype call, so not sure how to kick in here.
[19:15] jmo: " I see everything twice1" -- Yossarian
[19:15] nicolejleboeuf: "Why have you multiplied?"
[19:15] lee: *giggle*

[19:17] jmo: Anyone here yet from the Bay are gathering?
[19:17] nicolejleboeuf: I'm not sure - I got a prompt to make sure my webcam and mike were working when I logged i
[19:17] nicolejleboeuf: into the chat.
[19:18] jacque: Can mark hear yet?
[19:18] lee: Really! Do you sing, Mark?

[19:18] jacque: Singers, gracie?
[19:19] terry: I hear overlap
[19:19] lee: Handbells would work...
[19:20] nicolejleboeuf: ...or wine glasses

[19:20] jmo: dunno.... which jurisdiction would apply?
[19:20] terry: in Calif,. it's legal
[19:21] lee: If you do dyework, is that Stain worship?

[19:22] guest-5874 entered the room
[19:23] nicolejleboeuf: Hello guest-5874! :-)
[19:23] guest-5874 changed nickname to absentmindedperfesser(xopher)
[19:23] terry: he has great ceilings
[19:24] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): I have no camera. This is Xopher.
[19:24] jacque: Helps if you call the right restaurant
[19:24] nicolejleboeuf: So did you order your naan, Jacque?
[19:24] lee: Hi, Xopher!
[19:24] jmo: Hello, Xopher!
[19:25] nicolejleboeuf: Hi!
[19:25] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): Hi Lee & JMO.
[19:25] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): Hi Nicole.
[19:25] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): I can see and hear four people.
[19:25] jacque: Can Xopher hear? Can he see?
[19:25] nicolejleboeuf: I would not have realized absentminded perfesser was Xopher without help
[19:25] lee: Me either.
[19:25] jacque: No, but Serge is there. Computer is not yet.
[19:27] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): No, how could you? This is what comes of my using my MySpace account.
[19:27] lee: *makes sign against evil* MYSpace???
[19:27] nicolejleboeuf: You has a distress?
[19:28] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): I admit it. MySpace. It was the first one that came up.
[19:29] terry: the fan noise
[19:29] nicolejleboeuf: Ah
[19:29] lee: I didn't have any luck trying to sign on via Facebook.
[19:29] nicolejleboeuf: I used Twitter
[19:29] jmo: could have used Twitter, but wasn't sure if it would ask for password.
[19:29] terry: I used gueset
[19:29] jacque: Yes, but the noise of which fan. We have several to choose from.
[19:29] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): I hardly ever log into it, I swear.
[19:29] terry: I refuse to let outisde apps poll my facebook
[19:29] nicolejleboeuf: Me too
[19:29] nicolejleboeuf: I am scared of linking ANYTHING to Facebook
[19:29] jacque: I don't have a FB account.
[19:29] jacque: FB EVIL.
[19:30] terry: once one has one, it's forever
[19:30] nicolejleboeuf: It helps to hide all apps
[19:30] lee: Yeah, I think that was the problem. Every time I refused to let it update my FB status,
[19:30] lee: it bounced me.
[19:30] jacque: BF bounded lee?
[19:30] jacque: Buh. FB bounced lee?
[19:30] nicolejleboeuf: BF / FB ...
[19:30] nicolejleboeuf: I figured. :-)
[19:31] jacque: Still embarrassing.
[19:31] nicolejleboeuf: And now we know when tinychat breaks into two rows
[19:31] lee: No, Tinychat bounced me when I wouldn't let it update my status.
[19:31] jmo: Do we need to go to walkie-talk "over" protocol?
[19:31] jacque: Lee, can you log into tinychat as a guest and forget FB?
[19:31] terry: I'll be up and down
[19:31] jacque: Terry has books too!
[19:31] lee: That's what I ended up doing.
[19:31] terry: playing another round
[19:32] jacque: Unfortunately, the screen reflection on glasses means can't see eyes.
[19:32] terry: Wii golf
[19:32] jacque: jmo I see you, but now you can't see.
[19:33] jacque: Spray some hairspray on your lenses?
[19:33] lee: Not.
[19:33] jacque: Seriously: old movie maker's tricks
[19:33] jacque: Oh, lee. you're no fun.
[19:34] lee: Not when it's MY glasses we're talking about! :-)
[19:34] jacque: You just need a good ultrasonic cleanr
[19:34] jacque: cleaner
[19:34] nicolejleboeuf: Until you are on camera, Lee, that remains entirely academic
[19:34] jacque: True.
[19:34] lee: Good point.
[19:34] mark: kleenr
[19:34] jacque: Yes.
[19:34] nicolejleboeuf: For now we will just have to imagine your glasses...
[19:35] lee: How does it decide who gets green text and who gets brown?
[19:35] terry: a hole at St. Andrews
[19:35] terry: it was ok
[19:35] terry: oh, have to putt
[19:35] terry: yes
[19:35] mark: You were being an a-hole at St Andrews?
[19:35] lee: BWA
[19:36] terry: St Andrews was being an asshole to me
[19:36] jmo: SO this isn't the regular Wii sports golf? I don't get St Andrews on mine.
[19:36] terry: We're doing a randome 18
[19:36] terry: eating
[19:36] terry: and drinking
[19:36] terry: and having a goodtime without us
[19:36] jacque: And merry of the making
[19:36] nicolejleboeuf: bastids
[19:36] jacque: Correct misspelling: bastits
[19:36] nicolejleboeuf: I think that's dialectal
[19:37] lee: Russ waves.
[19:37] jacque: ten. 9 to share the experience
[19:37] nicolejleboeuf: that'll work
[19:37] nicolejleboeuf: /me waves back
[19:37] jacque: A la "watering plants"
[19:37] terry: Bastiches
[19:37] terry: Is he buried?
[19:38] terry: I'll see him on Monday, I think
[19:38] nicolejleboeuf: he may have fallen in a hole

[19:42] jmo: Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
[19:42] jmo: And I'm not even comfrotably numb.
[19:42] terry: Is that B. Durbin

[19:44] jacque: Still no sound from the restaurant
[19:44] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): Hello restaurant people!
[19:44] jacque: May be too noisy for them to transmit.
[19:44] nicolejleboeuf: I think no one is pushing the Talk button
[19:44] jacque: Did we establish that Xopher can see and hear?
[19:44] nicolejleboeuf: So Xopher said
[19:45] jacque: Is that Kathryn?
[19:45] mark: Yes, X can see and hear but not be heard or seen. He's godlike that way.

[19:45] nicolejleboeuf: YES!!!!
[19:45] lee: Yes!
[19:46] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): I can see and hear, but I have no camera or mic, so I can't display or talk.
[19:46] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): Just as well, really.
[19:46] lee: Oh, Xopher, hush. You're cute.
[19:46] nicolejleboeuf: Under the microphone icon, "Unmute microphone"
[19:46] jacque: But he probably woudn't have his wig.
[19:46] jacque: Or abi's wig.
[19:46] nicolejleboeuf: Sound is a go!

[19:47] terry: no, the abbey is with you
[19:47] nicolejleboeuf: non-naan
[19:47] jacque: How do you do naan without a tandoori oven?
[19:47] terry: so no nuns for us
[19:47] nicolejleboeuf: you cheat

[19:48] terry: Tandoori is a ditch oven
[19:48] nicolejleboeuf: bwah
[19:48] mark: That's a poori excuse
[19:48] lee: A Romertopf is effectively the same as a tandoor, I think
[19:50] nicolejleboeuf: Sadly, I can only really make out whover's speaking closest to the computer (at the restau
[19:50] jacque: Singer has been emailed
[19:50] absentmindedperfesser(xopher): You went to a no-naan nommery?

[19:59] jacque: No, this is the chat. We don't have a voicewriter online yet.
[19:59] nicolejleboeuf: Boy, wouldn't THAT be convenient!
[19:59] jacque: Chatting keeps the background noise down.
[20:00] jacque: And makes us all look so thoughtful and studious.
[20:00] kathrynsunnyval: have wea ll decided what we'll eat?
[20:00] lee: I can hear somebdy type. I think it's either Nicole or Jacque.

[20:03] nicolejleboeuf: I will be right back - going to say hi to the Oregon gang that John is chatting with
[20:03] jacque: Except that having the computer pointed into the air confuses the audio pickup.

[20:29] lee: Ah. I did wonder.
[20:29] guest-6979 entered the room
[20:29] pendrift: what black hole sucked them away?
[20:29] nicolejleboeuf: The restaurant is outta juice... maybe
[20:29] jacque: I'm almost tempted to call in a silly credit card order to the restaurant.
[20:29] guest-6982 entered the room
[20:29] nicolejleboeuf: Kathryn was talking about not having anywhere to plug in.
[20:29] guest-6982 changed nickname to kathrynsunnyval

[20:30] jmo: hello!
[20:30] mark: and was on my feet lecturing again at 8 this morning. Then epic car fail on the way home.
[20:30] jacque: I'd offer a guinea pig to stuff down your shirt, but they don't transmit well.
[20:30] jmo: there are usually plugs in the rest rooms, but that might make for an even weirder chat
[20:30] lee: Ouch -- not a good day!
[20:30] jacque: And more echoes!!
[20:30] terry: I took a ride... Tenn dirivers are careless of motorcycles, at least on secondary roads
[20:31] pendrift: a memorable one!
[20:31] xopher: /me is glad he's not in Jacque's swatting range.
[20:31] lee: TN drivers all tailgate like whoa.
[20:31] xopher: Hello KeithS
[20:31] lee: So did I, when I was living there.
[20:31] keiths: Worse than LA?
[20:31] terry: They think the pasing lane is for driving
[20:31] terry: Much
[20:31] keiths: Hello, Xopher.
[20:31] lee: LOTS worse. Now it freaks me out when I go back.
[20:31] xopher: I think Mark dozeth off.
[20:31] jacque: Mark, be happy you're not Null.
[20:31] terry: LA is, from a nations worth of driving, possessed of pretty good drivers
[20:32] keiths: That's a scary thought.
[20:32] nicolejleboeuf: We're all happy we're not Null. except Null.
[20:32] terry: there was a study done on rain
[20:32] nicolejleboeuf: Null is happy he's Null, by all appearances
[20:32] nicolejleboeuf: [/aflak voice]
[20:32] xopher: Space is always a problem at Indian restaurants.
[20:32] mark: Could be worse, could be Zathras
[20:32] terry: LA, SF, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, New York
[20:32] xopher: All those breads and condiments.
[20:32] jacque: Boulder, in the fall.
[20:32] terry: that was the order of safety in the rain
[20:32] jmo: Space... the final frontier...
[20:32] jacque: When the students come back.
[20:32] xopher: Hi Kathryn!
[20:32] nicolejleboeuf: Just avoid the Hill and we'll all be fine
[20:33] jacque: Uh, tried to cross 30th lately?
[20:33] nicolejleboeuf: Oh, that's just construction season...
[20:33] jacque: We're probably consigned to the bathroom until we get battery charged
[20:33] lee: As in, winter and construction?
[20:33] nicolejleboeuf: Yah, something like that
[20:33] nicolejleboeuf: (brb)
[20:33] jacque: No. Boulder has great weather. Construction all year.
[20:33] xopher: Wow, Mark, glad to see you at all.

[20:34] jacque: KeithS back AGAIN.
[20:34] mark: Except around here it's more Snow Repair and Road Removal.
[20:34] keiths: I'm going to give up on trying to have this thing figure out my webcam. Flash is... unhap
[20:34] keiths: unhappy*
[20:34] xopher: KITTEH!!!!!!!!

[20:35] keiths: Aww... kitty.
[20:35] jmo: kittty.... guinea....
[20:35] lee: Pretty kitties!
[20:35] xopher: Nicole, she said she had to charge the laptop.
[20:36] pendrift: why should i be the only one to wake up at this hour?
[20:36] nicolejleboeuf: ah
[20:36] pendrift: is that what guinea pigs sound like?!
[20:36] xopher: Oh, is THAT what that dripping noise is?!?!?!
[20:36] xopher: LOL
[20:36] xopher: The tribulations of KeithS.
[20:37] xopher: What were you all just laughing at?
[20:37] keiths: Oh well. So you don't get to see me. Blame Adobe.
[20:37] xopher: You all laughed at the same time, but the chat is wayy behind.
[20:37] nicolejleboeuf: Xopher, I think you must be about 2 minutes lagged. Or something...
[20:37] nicolejleboeuf: I'm having trouble connecting the dots.
[20:37] xopher: I have to get a damned camera, clearly.
[20:37] lee: Too bad. You and Terry could have had a longest-hair contest.
[20:37] pendrift: haha
[20:37] pendrift: xopher would need abi's help there, though
[20:38] dawno: aww that's an adorable guina pig, jaque :-)
[20:38] xopher: A PIGGEH!
[20:38] xopher: A GINNEH PIGGEH!!!
[20:38] guest-7185 entered the room
[20:38] nicolejleboeuf: Null just howled. I think he's feeling existential
[20:38] jacque: That's good. I'm so stealing that!!
[20:39] mark: Xopher, tell us what time you see this line. It's 22:38 my time.
[20:39] carolwitt: Ah, lag. Reminds me of #callahans.on IRC.
[20:39] lee: Usenet was just as bad.
[20:39] keiths: What's the appropriate sacrifice to the lag monster again?
[20:39] xopher: I'd lose without abi's help.
[20:39] jmo: True... #callahans might lag minutes, alt.callahans could lag days
[20:39] pendrift: As long as it's not a cat, I'm good
[20:39] carolwitt: It's been so long, I don't remember.
[20:40] guest-7185 changed nickname to kathrynsunnyval
[20:40] xopher: I lose against *JMO*, never mind Terry!
[20:40] nicolejleboeuf: Looks like about 2 minutes, between the hair contest line and the "with abi's help" respon
[20:40] nicolejleboeuf: wb kathryn
[20:40] kathrynsunnyval: Sorry...we lost connection there
[20:40] kathrynsunnyval: This is Abi here
[20:40] nicolejleboeuf: Hi abi!
[20:40] xopher: Mark, 22:40. So yeah.
[20:40] jacque: Hi abi!!
[20:40] keiths: Hi Abi!
[20:40] jmo: hi abi!
[20:40] pendrift: Hi abi!!
[20:40] carolwitt: Hi abi!
[20:41] lee: Hi, Abi!
[20:41] kathrynsunnyval: Thought I'd stop by and say I need to figure out how to put the picture back on
[20:41] mark: FWIW, X, I saw your reply pretty much immediately.
[20:41] jacque: Ah! We've achieved transcription! Echo is now appearing in text!
[20:41] nicolejleboeuf: We were wondering if you'd go plug in in the restroom or something
[20:41] keiths: The little picture that looks like a target up next to the microphone and gear pictures.
[20:41] nicolejleboeuf: it sounded like a tight squeeze
[20:41] jacque: Abi, can you see yourself?
[20:41] keiths: I think it's supposed to look like a camera.
[20:41] xopher: Sigh. So that means even if I make a joke good enough to laugh at I'll never know.
[20:42] xopher: Hi Abi!
[20:42] nicolejleboeuf: Like a webcamera lens
[20:42] xopher: Abi, abit dies.
[20:42] pendrift: Abi, does the broadcast not work?
[20:42] nicolejleboeuf: It's an abi!
[20:42] jmo: abi's beaming in!
[20:42] pendrift: ah, there!!!
[20:42] kathrynsunnyval: I can see myself
[20:42] keiths: It works!
[20:42] kathrynsunnyval: can you see me?
[20:42] keiths: We see you.
[20:42] jacque: Hi! Got some very bizarre video noise there!!
[20:42] lee: I see you!
[20:42] terry: They have found us, we are SAVED!
[20:42] nicolejleboeuf: Beam us up!
[20:42] terry: It's te jetpacks
[20:43] jacque: Can't hear abi!
[20:43] mark: Still can't hear you. Microphone icon.
[20:43] xopher: I see a micon.
[20:43] terry: abi.. the mic isn't live
[20:43] terry: Cousin it
[20:43] xopher: JMO, why are you smashing your computer?
[20:44] kathrynsunnyval: I don't know who's the funniest -- the people with hair or the people without!
[20:44] terry: That's two years growth
[20:44] lee: I'd go for that.
[20:44] terry: yes
[20:44] keiths: Yes, we can.
[20:44] pendrift: yesssss!
[20:44] jacque: We can haz!!
[20:44] jmo: we can hear you!
[20:44] xopher: Cousin It and the whole family.
[20:44] nicolejleboeuf: We have made audio contact with the abiveldt
[20:44] jacque: Echo echo echo....
[20:44] jacque: AW!!!
[20:44] terry: We were amusing ourselves
[20:44] nicolejleboeuf: well, but don't starve
[20:44] xopher: Thank you, abi.
[20:45] pendrift: If someone figures out how to do it. Hint hint.
[20:45] keiths: Oh dear. Now I have to look good for posterity's sake.
[20:45] lee: Keith, you always look good.
[20:45] jmo: oh good, someone saved a transcript already?
[20:45] xopher: Oh, now I'm GLAD I don't have a camera!
[20:46] kathrynsunnyval: There's a lot of background noise here, so I may not hear everyone
[20:46] xopher: And we'll miss all the spoken word too.
[20:46] terry: ah.. this is being recorded?
[20:46] terry: I did a screencap
[20:46] pendrift: It is? I take back everything I said.
[20:46] kathrynsunnyval: No, verbal input is safe from posterity
[20:46] kathrynsunnyval: (if you trust me...)
[20:46] nicolejleboeuf: whew, that was a close one!
[20:46] jmo: recorded by anyone participating?
[20:46] nicolejleboeuf: (not me!)
[20:46] kathrynsunnyval: I can see the lag in how you all reacted
[20:46] guest-7345 entered the room

[20:47] xopher: Hello BourbonGeek!
[20:47] jacque: Who's burbongeek
[20:47] lee: Pendrift must have turned on the light.
[20:47] kathrynsunnyval: Something we've never really considered
[20:47] nicolejleboeuf: I still don't know who BourbonGeek is - Introduce yourself, mystery guest!
[20:47] jacque: No fair lurking!
[20:47] kathrynsunnyval: (On the other hand, that's kind of what open threads are)
[20:47] jacque: Carol, turn your mic on again!
[20:47] kathrynsunnyval: There's a FINE tradition of lurking!
[20:47] xopher: Hey, BourbonGeek supports us in email!

[20:50] kathrynsunnyval: life...
[20:50] nicolejleboeuf: Knowing all the chords to Subdivisions is next
[20:50] terry: that's a heck of song to know, absent the cues which come of the song playing
[20:50] lee: Unfamiliar with this song. Who's the artist?
[20:50] nicolejleboeuf: Rush

[20:53] pendrift: oh, limericks
[20:54] terry: That's a funny looking sonnet
[20:54] lee: That sounds more like a limerick.
[20:54] xopher: "A bunch of MLers in CA"...wait, that's not a sonnet.
[20:54] terry: more like a cocktail
[20:54] nicolejleboeuf: Yes, that wasn't exactly iambic pentameter
[20:54] xopher: Damn, great minds.
[20:54] jacque: Hey, I don't speak poetry
[20:54] terry: a lime-ricky poem
[20:54] mark: Jacque, the other parlour trick I'm not allowed to do at shows is sing Johnny Jump Up...
