Determining if a Zip/String?

Grinch says, 'is there a way tell if an item is a zip or string or just mundane stuff'

Grinch ponders an unrecognizable piece of useless junk's existence.

Kaige says, 'if it's a zip, it should still have that keyword'

LadyAce says, 'poke zip'

LadyAce says, 'poke storage'

LadyAce says, 'that'll get you 2 of the 3 possibilities'

Grinch nods solemnly.

Grinch says, 'thanks'

LadyAce says, 'you sometimes will just have to ask'

LadyAce says, 'ok-to-restring is a popular string keyword'

LadyAce giggles.

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Grinch says, 'but the storage doesn't work on all strings'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Grinch nods solemnly.


Shadowroom Imped Soon?

Kelvar says, 'is shadowroom gonna be implemented soon'

LadyAce says, 'I don't think I'd say soon. Someone might get a sudden burst of motivation and finish off light levels in one fell swoop'

Kaige says, 'no plans for "soon"... there's a lot of underlying structure that would need to be implemented first'

LadyAce says, 'but I don't think it's part of an active plan.'

Kelvar says, 'ok.....'


String/Coupon Availability?

Kelvar says, 'i suggest that you have a yearly string shop/day'

LadyAce says, 'string shop day? How would it work?'

Kelvar says, 'a string shop or day'

ArchAngel says, 'as in a day you can purchase strings?'

Kelvar says, 'the shop would be on one day where people can buy coupons'

LadyAce says, 'people can buy 'em from each other already :P'

Grinch says, 'buy from immortals?'

Kelvar says, 'yea'

Kelvar says, 'cuz they get a lot of em'

Grinch says, 'as in, LadyAce selling non-color coupons for 2 gold coins a piece'

Kelvar says, 'more like 20k'

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.

ArchAngel says, 'i doubt they'd be that low...'

LadyAce says, 'I think we have a lot of strings and such in circulation already, though'

Grinch frowns.

ArchAngel says, 'non-colors sell for 50k plus on average'

Grinch says, 'i like the 2 coin price better'

Kelvar says, 'awww...'

Kaige says, 'and it's boring when everyone's dressed the same with them.'

Kaige giggles.

ArchAngel nods his agreement with Kaige.

LadyAce says, 'there are a lot of ways to get them, I'd rather not see us weaken those'

LadyAce says, 'in general, we try to use them as an immortal tool'

LadyAce says, 'to strengthen the mud socially and to encourage RP'

ArchAngel says to Kaige, 'thats why when i get some multi colors or what i plan on making somethign completely different :P'

LadyAce says, 'so if we sold them, we'd be cheating ourselves'

ArchAngel says, 'i like the idea of earning coupons and such as it is but at times it seems the only people getting the coupons are the ones who fight for them'

LadyAce says, 'there are a lot of ways to get them, though...a lot of varied types of events.'

Kaige says, 'I know a lot more people could get chances for tokens through the bug lotto and the LT pieces than they currently take advantage of too.'


Bug Lotto & LT for Tokens?

ArchAngel says, 'what exactly are you looking for in the bug lotto?'

Kaige says, 'possible bugs, typos, and useful ideas that will improve the game'

ArchAngel says, 'lt pieces are you talking like plain ole writings and news articles?'

Grinch says, 'do they only count if it is a new bug/typo'

Kaige says, 'RP/PK etc.'

ArchAngel says, 'ahh so like the judah series and such?'

LadyAce says, 'yup'

Kaige says, 'As long as YOU don't sit and report the same thing over and over and over again, I put one ticket with your name into into the pot for each one to kae.'

LadyAce says, 'RP accounts, observations...'

Kaige nods her agreement with ArchAngel.

Grinch nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'I'm also offering them for similar things with PK these days. details are in the last two issues'

ArchAngel says, 'is this counting like clan announcements too? or is that different?'

Kaige says, 'those are different'

ArchAngel says, 'ok'

ArchAngel says, 'i oughta come up with a good rp story about myself but i'm too lazy :P'

Grinch snorts in disbelief at ArchAngel's last comment.

Kelvar says, 'i did...\'

ArchAngel shrugs helplessly.

LadyAce says, 'rewards for laziness are often few and far between, unless you're a programmer :)'

LadyAce points at Grinch.

ArchAngel says to LadyAce, 'well i program at home...'

ArchAngel says, 'onemore clearafication with the bug lotto its anything that doesnt look right right?'

Kaige nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'look or feel right'

ArchAngel says, 'i'll be sure to find something to complain about!'

ArchAngel grins evilly.

Darla says, 'I never find bugs. Only typos.'

Grinch says, 'typos are usually funnier'

ArchAngel says, 'i aint seen to many typos that have caught my eyes'

Kaige says, 'I'm always amazed at the typos that are found in some of the areas that have been in since the beginning'

Kelvar says, 'well i gotta leave'

Darla says, 'cause there aren't any new areas, so they've all been caught.'


Game Suggestions/Timing

Grinch says, 'idea for a new game: DT tours, hit as many different DT as fast as possible'

LadyAce giggles.

Grinch says, 'everybody is asking for re-eq, so people must be hitting them on a regular basis'

Emrysia ponders Grinch's existence.

ArchAngel scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

ArchAngel says, 'hitting dts... i dunno what that means...'

ArchAngel whistles innocently to himself.

Grinch projects an aura of heavenly light above ArchAngel's head.

ArchAngel says, 'n i be careful bout traveling only time i do hit dts is if i perma. which aint gunna happen.. or the one time i was drunk and walking around....'

Kelvar says, 'there should be more elves on the elf hunt'

LadyAce says, 'I really think there are a lot of elf items that went out, I've seen a ton'

Grinch says, 'there were a lot of fairies on the last hunt, near the end anyways'

LadyAce says, 'but you can definitely pass that as feedback to Kae and Cheyla via idea or the news board post'

Grinch says, 'what is the record for the level 5 contest? wasn't it under 30min'

ArchAngel says, 'i think there was a mud record of 23 mins wasnt there?'

LadyAce says, '23 min is the record I've heard'

Grinch shrugs helplessly.

Grinch nods solemnly.

Grinch says, '23!? gezz'

ArchAngel says, 'i almost thought about trying the level contest but then again i had to leave...'

Grinch says, 'i login late and i can't break the 40min mark'

Grinch scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

LadyAce giggles.

LadyAce says, 'it hasn't been run in a while, so it's only expected that y'all be rusty'

ArchAngel says, 'a lot of the games that goes on is like around the time i need to take off and head to bed so i get enough sleep'

Grinch says, 'games always start during my commute time'

LadyAce says, 'darn time zones! darn curvature of the earth!'

Grinch laughs with amusement.

LadyAce says, 'shake your fist at the world, it'll make ya feel better :)('

Grinch raises his fist in the air in anguish.

ArchAngel says, 'i notice that a lof of people get on around 17 oo system time... ever thought of holding the games aroudn then?'

LadyAce says, '1700 system time, I'm still at work and so are a lotta imms'

Grinch says, 'that's west coast time'

Grinch says, 'or east'

Grinch is completely boggled.

LadyAce says, 'it's a good time for students, but not so good for the imm staff, which is almost entirely working stiffs.'

ArchAngel says, 'eats eastern time'

LadyAce says, 'well, 1700 eastern is 1600 central...4pm, I can't even dream of being home :P'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

LadyAce says, 'timing is always a pain and hard to ever get right'

LadyAce says, 'some events are day-long, like item hunts on holidays, elf game...'

ArchAngel nods solemnly.

Grinch says, 'how come recalltag isn't run as often anymore'

Grinch says, 'we need practice before next wed'

LadyAce says, 'Cuz it's kinda been buggy, basically'

LadyAce says, 'Sandra's been working on ironing out the troubles'

Grinch nods solemnly.

Kelvar says, 'what ever happened to paintball'

LadyAce says, 'but it can't just be run at the drop of a hat, in general'

ArchAngel says, 'it requires a restart dont it?'

LadyAce says, 'tag? Nah.'

ArchAngel says, 'wasnt there a game that did?'

Kaige says, 'the paintball arena is what I think he means'

Grinch says, 'all the elf hunts need restart'

LadyAce says, 'games only need restarts if they need mob changes that haven't gone in since we updated last'

Kaige says, 'which is where we held the last pk tourney... but yeah. it's not typically loaded in memory'

LadyAce says, 'usually we do tourneys on a separate port and don't affect the mud'

ArchAngel says, 'i'm going to take off i got money to gather and xp to gain'

ArchAngel says, 'not to mention strings to buy :P'

Grinch says, 'and to make up your eq--list for the week'

ArchAngel says, 'i have the list made out i just gotta lvl'


Bug with Number of Attackers?

Agaz says, 'I have 5 charmies attacking on Dimmesdale .. etc ..'

Agaz says, 'How is it possible that he attack me ?'

Agaz says, 'That make 6 peeps attacking him ?'

Agaz is completely boggled.

ArchAngel is a eyewitness..

Agaz says to ArchAngel, 'He was there'

Agaz says to ArchAngel, 'Almost got kill too'

Agaz sniffs sadly.

Kaige says, 'I'd have to dig deep in the code, but I remember seeing a report of that go across the bug channel so I know it'll be on the coder's list.'

ArchAngel nods his agreement with Agaz.

Agaz nods solemnly.

Agaz says, 'So it is a bug right ?'

Grinch says, 'did you use an etheric archer too'

Agaz says, 'Can't 5 charmies attacking'

LadyAce says, 'he shoulda shoved one of the charmies out of the fight I'd say'

Agaz says, 'I wasn't fighting'

ArchAngel says, 'i'm sure we could get the situation to happen again...'

Grinch says, 'u can get 5charm +archer too'

Agaz says, 'Oo'

Kaige says, 'I don't know. I want to say the number of attackers was more than 5 but I can't say for certain without looking it up'

Agaz says, 'so 7 if I get in'

ArchAngel says, 'there was still 5 charmies attacking'

Agaz says, 'This is nice .. hehe .. if we can do that to player .. 8 or 9 hitters on one mob is nice'

Agaz grins evilly.

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.

Grinch says, 'u can do 5+1archer easy'

Agaz says to Grinch, 'How ?'

Agaz says to Grinch, 'O all attack and then cast archer ?'

Agaz looks up into the sky and ponders.

ArchAngel blinks.

Agaz says, 'That be sweet'

Agaz grins evilly.

Grinch says, '4 charm attack, u attack, cast carcher, calm self, or 5th charmy attack'

ArchAngel blinks.

Agaz says, 'Oo'

Grinch says, 'so by 3rd you have 5 +1'

Grinch says, '3rd round'

Agaz nods his agreement with Grinch.

Agaz says, 'nice'

Agaz smiles happily.

Agaz says, 'Well .. that was it'

Grinch says, 'and remake as you need to keep mob away from you'

Agaz nods his agreement with Grinch.

Grinch shrugs helplessly.

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.

Kaige says, 'It might also be something with the assisting/target stuff as well, so, I don't have an answer really except it's on the list to look at'

Agaz nods his agreement with Kaige.

Agaz says to Kaige, 'I just run across it just now with Dimmesdale'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Agaz smiles happily.


Area Updates & New Areas

Grinch says, 'i like the new longhouse update whoever did that,'

Kaige says, 'That'd be Kae... you can always find out which imm is responsible for an area by typing areainfo '

Kaige says, 'and you can get the keywords from areainfo with no arguments'

ArchAngel says, 'we need more quest :P'

Grinch says, 'but the new exits messed me up'

Kaige says, 'quests are one of the best/most popular things to add, but one of the hardest/most time consuming to write/test for us'

Darla says, 'wow that's a lot of /'s'

Kaige chuckles politely.

Grinch says, 'ah'

Agaz says, 'Is there any big area like SL AT PD in the making?'

ArchAngel says, 'yeah i realize that becuas you have to think up something to add'

Kaige says, 'you mean other than Hell?'

Agaz says, 'Hell is gonna be like those three ?'

Agaz says, 'Sweet'

Agaz smiles happily.

Agaz says, 'I thought it was gonna be a hometown or something'

Agaz scuffles his feet around in the dirt.

ArchAngel laughs with amusement.

Grinch says, 'we need a heaven area , beat up on angels'

Kaige says, 'wouldn't be very hellish then'

Grinch peers at ArchAngel, looking him up and down.

ArchAngel peers at Grinch, looking him up and down.

ArchAngel says, 'beat up on angels? now why would ya wanna beat poor lil ole me up?'

Agaz says to Grinch, 'Yea .. I was suggesting that to a ex-imm .. but the person said it won't go in'

Kaige says, 'to drop their align further'

Kaige giggles.

ArchAngel whaps Kaige across the back of the head - your ears ring in sympathy.

LadyAce says, 'I dunno, if we can have Inferno, why not Paradiso? :)'

Agaz says, 'Be nice to force player to have fly .. or else hey drop to their death'

ArchAngel says, 'i'm only pure evil....'

Grinch says, 'purgatory'

Grinch says to Agaz, 'there is one area like that'

Agaz says, 'And umm .. angel attack evil players .. hehe'

ArchAngel peers at Agaz, looking him up and down.

Grinch says, 'and mobs that do that already'

Agaz winks suggestively at ArchAngel.

ArchAngel sniffs sadly.

ArchAngel says, 'you guys are suggesting that my own kind beat me up'

Grinch says, 'like the singing angel on [gossip]'

ArchAngel nods solemnly.

Agaz says to ArchAngel, 'Yea .. so you can't be hasting into putting devil's trident on your eq list'


RP Event Discussion

LadyAce says, 'suggestions? I'm on the hunt for RP-encouraging events.'

Grinch looks up into the sky and ponders.

Grinch says, 'i remember a quest a long time ago that'

Grinch says, 'involves a mob giving out luck potions and attacking tara or sidhes or something'

Grinch says, 'but it was an imm ran event thing'

Grinch says, 'for that night only'

Kaige says, 'That'd be Asterix.'

Grinch nods solemnly.

Grinch says, 'the short viking guy'

Kaige says, 'was a Charity thing in Roman Britain for a while.'

Grinch says, 'maybe replay some historical events in areas with imm (possessed) mobs guiding things'

Kaige says, 'sounds like it might be good for summer odyssey tinyplot material'

Grinch says, 'what is that?'

LadyAce nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'historical events thing'

LadyAce says, 'each month focuses on a different era'

LadyAce says, 'june ancient, july medieval, august industrial'

LadyAce says, 'events & updates & games and such.'

Grinch is completely boggled.

Kaige says to LadyAce, 'this'll be what.. the third year now?'

LadyAce says, 'was a newish thing, started 2 summers ago'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Kaige.

Grinch says, 'like what happens'

Grinch looks up into the sky and ponders.

LadyAce says, 'tinyplots, games, area updates...'

LadyAce says, 'the idea is to focus on the world of the mud itself, and have events which draw attention to all the nooks and crannies of the mud'

Kaige says, 'well, typically, I focus on areas in each of those eras to update for that month, make existing areas spiffier in some way. First year I did little write ups on an area in the era for the LT.'

Kaige says, 'Also tinyplots in areas of the month's era will tend to happen too.'

LadyAce says, 'you'll see :)'

Grinch says, 'i.e. do a write up on victorian london and crime, then have Jack the ripper kill all the women in town?'

Kaige says, 'yeah could be soemthing like that but we'll probably be focusing on the less popular areas for the most part I think'

Grinch looks up into the sky and ponders.

Grinch says, 'or history of indians in anasazi or soemthing'

Kaige says, 'Like last year I did a tinyplot in Aztecs where there was a drought and the players had to help solve pleasing the rain god.'

Grinch nods solemnly.

LadyAce says, 'the medieval one was in lincolnshire'

Grinch nods solemnly.

Grinch says, 'rp is tough since most times you don't know when it starts or ends'

Grinch says, 'so having set "rp time" when you know people won't break character would be easier, is this what the tinyplot is about'

Kaige says, 'that's one of the things I tried to keep in mind with the aztecs one. The players' roles were all whatever they brought to it, nothing was imposed on them except the basic rules of the plot'

Kaige says, 'and when I'm out playing my morts... I treat everyone I run into as RPing unless they prove otherwise'

Grinch nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'in which case I usually wander away from it sooner or later'

Grinch says, 'that's all the questions i have for now. I will try to bother you with more problems later'

LadyAce giggles at Grinch.


What Can Bards Do Now?

Basara says, 'Question: is there anything that a bard can do anymore?'

LadyAce says, 'entrance, lullaby...'

Basara says, 'I mean, there seems to be no more bards anymore...'

Kaige says, 'what can't bards do any more?'

LadyAce says, 'Praise isn't quite what it once was, but I don't think the bardic roles in general have decreased.'

Basara says, 'bards don't seem to be in large demand than say... 4 years ago.'

LadyAce says, 'they never killed people with bardism in the past'

Basara says, 'oh.'

LadyAce says, 'so it's not like we took anything from bards.'

Kaige says, 'I think it's what perceived as popular and on the fast track, and prestige/praise isn't a REQUIRED skill so much anymore, but they were never just that anyway'

LadyAce says, 'I think that fewer people advertise themselves as bards per se'

Basara nods solemnly.

Kaige nods her agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce says, 'they have the skills but don't call themselves that, they identify in other ways'

Basara says, 'oooh... I see...'

Kaige says, 'there's one out there... what's her name.... starts with an M....'

LadyAce says, 'But if you see places where we can enhance bardic skills, please do use idea channel and suggest them'

Basara says, 'well... guess I have to change that...'

Basara nods his agreement with LadyAce.

LadyAce cheers for Basara - huzzah!

Kaige says, 'she advertises, I just can't remember her name'

LadyAce smiles at Basara.

Hrath attempts to take cover.

Basara says, 'I'll start getting used to a bard... and then figure out suggestions.'

LadyAce nods her agreement with Basara.


New Hometowns Planned?

Jaylyn says, 'anymore hometowns in the works or being planned for anytime soon?'

LadyAce says to Jaylyn, 'not anytime soon'

Jaylyn nods solemnly.

Jaylyn says, 'I heard that malta may be made into a hometown in the future, any truth to that?'

LadyAce says, 'I can't say I've heard that'

Kaige says, 'no official plans that I've heard of.'

Jaylyn nods solemnly.

Jaylyn says, 'ok, guess im just losing it'

Jaylyn winks suggestively.

Jaylyn waves happily.


Ideas for New Areas?

Smiley says, 'is legendmud open to ideas for new areas maybe?'

LadyAce says to Smiley, 'usually that goes hand in hand with a new immortal to do the area'

Kaige says, 'always, we take apps for new immorts every six months (next set is Sept 1)'

Basara looks up into the sky and ponders.

Kaige says, 'the existing builders usually have their own pet projects they want to work on'

Kaige just has too many.

Kaige sighs at herself. What a sorry sight.

LadyAce says to Smiley, 'you can always suggest your ideas, but in general we already have about 3x as many ideas each than we can actually do. So area ideas usually need to come with a body attached.'

Smiley says, 'i want to suggest such areas like ... japan :)'

LadyAce shrugs helplessly.

Basara nods his agreement with Smiley.

Basara says, 'or china...'

LadyAce says to Smiley, 'people have talked about it, sure...we just need people to join us and do them.'

Basara nods solemnly.

Smiley cheers wildly!

Kaige says, 'japan/china... both would be great additions in all three eras'

Smiley nods in agreement.


How Hard is Building?

Basara says, 'I know that being a builder is very hard... but how hard is it?'

Basara says, 'how do you guys create an area?'

LadyAce says, 'tons of research and a giant text file'

Kaige says, 'I do it with graph paper and a text editor and a lot of documentation and research.'

Basara says, 'imo, I'd kill myself trying to make good desc for each room...'

LadyAce says, 'doesn't take any coding skills, but logical thinking and patience help immensely'

Basara nods his agreement with LadyAce.

Basara nods his agreement with Kaige.

Kaige says, 'coding skills help, but aren't a requirement the logical thinking and planning is the biggest part'

Basara nods solemnly.

Hrath says to Basara, 'and scary coffee-inhaling types brandishing lightsabres floating around midair pretending they made it happen.'

Basara giggles.

Kaige says, 'yeah descriptions are what slow me down the most.'

Kaige says, 'but once they're done and out of the way... it's a blast making it all come together'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " I love desc

Basara nods solemnly.


Rewarding RP/RP Dept?

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " well I was wondering what the posibilty of a new imm department for rp."

Hrath says, 'isn't that pr?'

Kaige says to Grunt, 'first off, please just speak normally, we're ooc, the imms are ooc.'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " I had a bunch of idea's about it but had no idea what the Imms or the player base might think of it

Kaige says, 'and I would say that would be a big part of what PR's about, it shouldn't take another department to orchestrate stuff for it.'

Kaige says, 'it may need someone specifically in charge of coordinating things, but I don't think that would be completely separate from pr'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " not to orchestrate but to reward

Hrath shudders.

Hrath says, 'that'll be troublesome, with "imm pets" ideas etc..imho'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " but then I guess you would have to have a pk department then huh?

Grunt nods solemnly.

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " like I said kind of a stupid idea but had to put it up

Grunt shrugs helplessly.

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " guess I'm done."

Kaige says, 'yeah the favoritism accusations and the trouble with 'quantifyin" something that's rather subjective at every turn is why we''ve never given xp for RP. Would be nice, but also the imm coverage would be next to impossible to make fair'

Kaige says to Grunt, 'not stupid, no... but I agree that someone who could be available and interesting and promoting of Rp all the time would be a good thing.'

Hrath says, 'pk'd be fairly easy, person who's left standing wins, rp's something different :)'

Basara says, '*cough* create mage *cough*'

Grunt chortles with amusement.

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " well had a whole thing kinda worked out for it but.....

Kaige says, 'pk's just as difficult in many ways as Rp... cause you've got to get people to work together and against each other in interesting ways, and they refuse to believe that they're RPing as they do it.'

Grunt nods his agreement with Kaige.

Hrath says to Kaige, 'I meant the reward part'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " pk does seem to promote RP."

Kaige says to Grunt, 'there's also the question of people out ther egaming it. If you gave each person 5 points to award to other people each day, how do you keep people from awarding them fairly and not just to their buddies.'

Kaige says, 'kinda along the lines of some of the accusations that always come up with teh Expies.'

Grunt nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'the big organized clan always wins best clan/gm etc because they can get the nominations and votes coordinated.'

Kaige says to Emrysia, 'not saying it's true and the past winners haven't deserved it.. I just hear that every year'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " I see your point I am still to stupid to understand all ppl aren't fair ."

Emrysia smiles at Kaige.

Emrysia giggles.

Kaige says to Grunt, 'yeah it sucks doesn't it?'

Grunt nods solemnly.

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " it's so easy for to do and hard not to do I just can't fathom it at times."


What's with the Lag Again?

Basara says, 'recently after the move, there's been a lot of lags, and lag timeouts. is it because of the change in the machine location?'

Basara says, 'or the connection method?'

Grunt raises an eyebrow inquiringly.

Grunt nods his agreement with Basara.

Kaige says, 'mostly it's because a change in the bandwidth of the connection we're on... we went from a t1 to a dsl line'

Kaige says, 'we got really spoiled'

Basara nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'butit was nice while it lasted.'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " so this goin to continue?"

Kaige says, 'we don't currently have any better options, or we'd have them lined up'

Kaige sighs loudly.

Basara nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'the best thing to do is use mccp and help everyone's connection.'

Basara comforts Kaige.

Basara says, 'i miss t1...'

Hrath says to Kaige, 'could you check how much data you transfer pr month?'

Kaige says to Hrath, 'Ea'd be the one to ask'

Hrath nods solemnly.

Hrath says, 'not likely that you'd be interested in placing it here in dk, but we've got 1Gbps to the danish inet exchange'

Hrath thought he'd mention the idea.

Kaige nods solemnly.

Kaige smiles at Hrath.

Kaige wants to be able to get a decent dsl line here, but we'd have to buy a new house first.

Hrath says to Kaige, 'buy the dls, build house around it, never come out'

Hrath says to Kaige, '3 step programme'

Kaige says, 'which is on the medium range plans. but not immediate'

Kaige giggles.

Basara snickers softly.

Kaige says, 'I said the next house I have will be on top of the darn CO'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " is cable got a wider band width?"

Basara shakes his head.

Grunt shrugs helplessly.

Basara says to Grunt, 'not necessarily'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " didn't know had to ask."

Kaige says, 'cable companies don't like you running servers tho'

Basara nods his agreement with Grunt.

Hrath looks up into the sky and ponders.

Kaige says, 'and it also depends on your neighborhood's useage'

Grunt nods solemnly.

Basara says, '*cough* kill your neighbors *cough*'

Grunt whispers into the tiny scribe's ear, the scribe looks up and says, the Ox said " and we seem to go down about once every week."

Hrath says to Kaige, 'glue the neighbours in prime time.. there, done.'

Kaige giggles at Hrath.

Kaige nods solemnly.

Kaige says, 'okie. I need to get the laundry out of the dryer and start packing soon'

Kaige whines.

Kaige says, 'thanks for coming gang.'

Hrath says to Kaige, 'mwahahaha, I hope the monsters get to you'

Basara waves happily.

Kaige says to Hrath, 'heh. I dunked them in the pool earlier'

Grunt hugs Kaige.

Kaige gives a big hug to everyone in the room.

Kaige waves happily.

Hrath giggles.

Grunt waves happily.

Kaige says, 'see ya guys later'

Basara says, 'later'

Basara waves happily.

Emrysia waves happily.
