    [13:00] Tepic Harlequin: ello Mr Tenk!
    [13:00] Mosseveno Tenk: small crowd today
    [13:00] Brandon Pappentas: Good evening Mr. Tenk.
    [13:00] Satu Moreau: Ö.Ö MEEP Ö.Ö
    [13:00] Jimmy Branagh: Hoy Mr. Clockwinder!
    [13:01] Tepic Harlequin whispers: does he mean us, Jimmy?
    [13:01] Satu Moreau: X3
    [13:01] Osric Worbridge tries to decide to classify Satu as Flora or Fauna? Mental name to study cross classification species latter.
    [13:01] Jimmy Branagh: Must be Tepic.
    [13:01] Satu Moreau: Hehe
    [13:01] Tepic Harlequin: oh look! it’s Mr Sir Sir Emerson!
    [13:01] Jimmy Branagh: ‘ello Mr. Emerson
    [13:01] Sky Melnik (sky.netizen): Howdy Emerson!
    [13:01] Bookworm Hienrichs: Glad to see you back, Mr. Lighthouse.
    [13:01] Emerson Lighthouse: Hey Jummy and Tepic
    [13:02] Emerson Lighthouse: And you as well Miss Hienrichs
    [13:02] Scottie Melnik: Welcome back, Emerson!
    [13:02] Emerson Lighthouse: I hope you survived in my absence
    [13:02] Mosseveno Tenk: Righto. as usual i will be posting transcripts. anyone got a problem with that?
    [13:02] Squire Malus (brother.malus): Sir Sir!
    [13:02] Jimmy Branagh: Nerp
    [13:02] Emerson Lighthouse: Thanks Scottie
    [13:02] Tepic Harlequin: no problem, Mr Tenk, Sir
    [13:02] Emerson Lighthouse: Scittie you did a great job shoveling the minkey poop cheers
    [13:02] Brandon Pappentas: Fine with me.
    [13:03] Mosseveno Tenk: right
    [13:03] Scottie Melnik: I’m a man of many talents.
    [13:03] Mosseveno Tenk: the first question i know you all have
    [13:03] Emerson Lighthouse: Sir Squire Malone
    [13:03] Mosseveno Tenk: is why does the BAR get ‘suspended’?
    [13:03] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
    [13:03] Caspian Moonstone: Mr. Lighthouse.. I found a box addressed to you infront of your house.. Where is Jamaica?
    [13:03] Mosseveno Tenk: lasttime it happened was 6 weeks ago, we thought we had it fixed, but apparenty not
    [13:04] Emerson Lighthouse: Oh Caspian *thank you* I was looking for that
    [13:04] Mosseveno Tenk: the cleanslate widgets are on the same account with the BAR, so seems one of hthe publishing boxes for the omnibill system got too inquisitive about asking for updates, and pegged out the bandwidth.
    [13:04] Osric Worbridge: Is it the monkey knife fighting pictures that get us suspended?
    [13:04] Object: Looks like a strange chalk drawing
    [13:04] Mosseveno Tenk: the BAR and the widgets are going to get separated so this won’t happen again
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: but it might not happen right away.
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: if you don’t know, mr. cleanslate is the ceo of a real life internet startup
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: that went beta thsi past sunday
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: soooooo
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: that’s why he’s hard to get hold of.
    [13:05] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra) nods
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: good good?
    [13:06] Bookworm Hienrichs: Is there anything we can do in the meantime to mitigate the problem?
    [13:06] Caspian Moonstone: I thought he was a myth? O.O
    [13:06] Mosseveno Tenk: no, not really
    [13:06] Bookworm Hienrichs sighs, and makes a note to stock up on anti-anxiety medicines for the next time.
    [13:06] Tepic Harlequin: it’s up again anyhow :-)
    [13:07] Mosseveno Tenk: once the widgets have their own bandwidth allocation, it should not be an issue anumore. so don’t panic if you see it again. we know WHY it happens. its just getting him the time to sort it out for us.
    [13:07] Caspian Moonstone passes Miss Book something he snatched from Mr. Lighthouse’s place
    [13:07] Mosseveno Tenk: next thing
    [13:07] Mosseveno Tenk: the Rising Steam Hunt
    [13:07] Mosseveno Tenk: will got April 7 to May 5
    [13:07] Emerson Lighthouse eyes Caspian’s transaction
    [13:07] Mosseveno Tenk: the invitation/application whent out through the engineers group, if you are renting ask your landlord for it
    [13:08] Mosseveno Tenk: deadline to apply is march 7
    [13:08] Mosseveno Tenk: limited to 100 stops
    [13:08] Mosseveno Tenk: and the stops are being pre-screened for appropriateness to theme. Joelle Tardis from Port Kasra is running it.
    [13:09] Mosseveno Tenk: The other steamhunt is in progress, i don’t think there are many stops in town this time,
    [13:09] Caspian Moonstone: So hopefully no tping into a BDSM shop this time?
    [13:09] Mosseveno Tenk: i certainly hope not.
    [13:09] Caspian Moonstone: Thank god..
    [13:09] Brandon Pappentas: Awwww shame.
    [13:09] Mosseveno Tenk: next thing
    [13:09] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra) grins
    [13:09] Mosseveno Tenk: how many of you have shops on marketplace?
    [13:09] Object: Looks like a strange chalk drawing
    [13:09] Tepic Harlequin raises a hand
    [13:09] Jimmy Branagh: Me
    [13:09] Sara Calcutt: i have it

  2. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk March 3, 2012

    [13:10] Liam Bean: I do
    [13:10] Jimmy Branagh: Yes, no sales
    [13:10] Jimmy Branagh laughs
    [13:10] Tepic Harlequin: but it’s been like that fer a while…
    [13:10] Mosseveno Tenk: i had my best month yet in feb. how are other people doing?
    [13:10] Object: Looks like a strange chalk drawing
    [13:10] Mosseveno Tenk: couple others i asked have noticed it too. so i’m just curious
    [13:10] Tepic Harlequin: course, would help if i put some new stuff on it….
    [13:11] MacKnight Culdesac: Not much activity since December.
    [13:11] Mosseveno Tenk: i do encourage everyone to use the magicboxes and get on marketplace. there is no telling what people will buy.
    [13:11] Satu Moreau: Did seem to do a touch better the latter half of Feb
    [13:11] Jimmy Branagh: ((I had a good Jan-Feb))
    [13:11] Mosseveno Tenk: the key is to stuff your keywords with every possible word you can think of that might apply to someone looking for your item, seperated by commas.
    [13:11] Satu Moreau: Though I think that was both marketplace and in world
    [13:12] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra) is just working on her first hair.
    [13:12] Scottie Melnik: And always put links to your in-world store in your items.
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk: i know things are still tight.
    [13:12] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra): It’ll be awhile before I’m ready to try delling stuff.
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk eyes the map in the lobby
    [13:12] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra): selling
    [13:12] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra): Blargh.
    [13:12] Salazar Jack looks too.
    [13:12] Emerson Lighthouse glances over
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk: there is a lot of worse than blargh on marketplace, really. and people buy it.
    [13:13] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra): Aye. I’ve seen some . . odd stuff.
    [13:13] Mosseveno Tenk: there’s a hell of a lot of build knowledge in this room. make friends, ask for help, don’t take critique personally, and you’ll do well. really.
    [13:13] Jimmy Branagh: SOme of the prices for mesh items are outrageous
    [13:13] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra) smiles
    [13:13] Satu Moreau: Yar
    [13:14] Tepic Harlequin: mesh items should be taking off now….
    [13:14] Jimmy Branagh: Oy’m gonna undercut everybody!
    [13:14] Mosseveno Tenk: there were somem large move outs this week, so there’s some smaller starter lots open in the iron bay area.

    [13:14] Caspian Moonstone: :p
    [13:14] LiliththeCupcake: how do i stop dancing???
    [13:14] Mosseveno Tenk: i don’t think my stuff is all that good, its far from professional. but i’m doing pretty good.
    [13:14] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra): Coldlogic’s good. All modern stuff so far, but nice.
    [13:14] Mosseveno Tenk: would someone rez a stop animator for her?

    [13:16] Mosseveno Tenk: one for camp build
    [13:17] Mosseveno Tenk: we don’t need to pick a build captain until near the end of april, as we get a better idea on what we’re going to build.
    [13:17] Mosseveno Tenk: theme is something about time? is that right? clocks?
    [13:17] Bookworm Hienrichs: “Time for a Cure,” I believe.

    [13:25] Avariel Falcon: Pictures sound good *nods*

    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk: and doing the judging.
    [13:33] Jimmy Branagh: Ah, okay

    [13:34] Jimmy Branagh: Byee Cas
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: this is the time of yera that we have th most vacant land on our hands, so we’ve got lots of room to play with. then hopefully things will fill back up at the end of the month.
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: i want to look at the imperial flag again, we didn’t quite hit it last time, and one of the runners up lost his hardware before we could look at it again.
    [13:35] Mosseveno Tenk: i think we are more familair with what the empire was this year than we were last year.
    [13:35] Salazar Jack mumbles about the confusing mess that was…
    [13:35] Mosseveno Tenk: we did figure out that the primary colors were gold and red
    [13:36] Mosseveno Tenk: one of the main problems with some of the entrants was the use of the austrian eagle, that was too closely associated to real european countries.
    [13:36] Salazar Jack refers to the Collapse long ago.
    [13:36] Mosseveno Tenk: so, taht is where that was
    [13:36] Avariel Falcon: Would not mind an imperial flag for the power station…
    [13:36] Mosseveno Tenk: the empire collapses in 1750, if this is 188x
    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk: if ya didn’t know… there is a background story that has developed over the past 5 years that has largely grown out of loki’s adventure chronicles that he does in the fall/winter.
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: hmm, i think we need one more 2D contest. anyone got an idea?
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: book covers?
    [13:38] Jimmy Branagh: Or Magazine covers?
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: ooh
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: yes, what DO we read here?
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: i’m almost afraid to find out.
    [13:38] Sky Melnik (sky.netizen): Even newspaper pages.
    [13:38] Emerson Lighthouse: I like both those idea
    [13:39] Salazar Jack: Has anyone every produced any old currency or coins?
    [13:39] Scottie Melnik: Liquor bottle labels.
    [13:39] Jimmy Branagh: “True Urchin Crime Stories”
    [13:39] Tepic Harlequin: that’s good, could be used as stuff strewn, if we have several…
    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk: right. books&periodicals.
    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk pens that
    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk: i like it!

  5. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk March 3, 2012

    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: i want to know about the currency.
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk grins
    [13:40] Jimmy Branagh: “DESIGN for the Proletariat”
    [13:40] Salazar Jack: Even if it isn’t good as tender anymore, it could still have historical value.
    [13:40] Tepic Harlequin: hehehe exchange rate for vole milk…
    [13:40] Erica Fairywren looks at her watch and starts, smiles and bows to the assembly
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: that one will be held in the forums.
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk checks teh time
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: righto. floor is yours.
    [13:41] Salazar Jack raises hand
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: mr jack?
    [13:41] Salazar Jack: Clockwinder, would you be able to give us your take on the current state of the Steamlands?
    [13:41] Salazar Jack: And New Babbage’s place in it?
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: as you now, steeltopia is closing this month,
    [13:42] Tesla Tripsa frowns
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: this is a personal situation with steelcobra calamari. he fell in over his head, and couldn’t catch up.
    [13:42] Jimmy Branagh: Awww …
    [13:42] Jedburgh30 Dagger: I’m shocked he hung on this long
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: steel has such a unique personallity that was an integral part of steeltopia
    [13:42] Tepic Harlequin: he is a nice person….
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: yes jed, i think everyone is. this was a long time coming.
    [13:42] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra): He’s been under for a long time. Gave it a good fight he did.
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: Wrath Constantine is in contact iwth him, he is doing well and focusing on what matters. he does expect to return someday.
    [13:43] Jedburgh30 Dagger: He is a good guy, but this was a long slow death
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: as far as the steamlans, i don’t think we are in any different situation than the rest of the grid. if anything, we might be a bit better off because of our community ties.
    [13:43] Salazar Jack nods
    [13:44] Jedburgh30 Dagger: What is Caledon down to now boss?
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: caledon is downsizing, guvnah shang has been bending my ear all week. with teh amount of land he carries, that is a wise move on his part.
    [13:44] Brandon Pappentas: Here here
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: dunno, you’d have to count it
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: i’m at 85% right now. that is where i get uncomfortable.
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: it also means i have more than one sim vacant.
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: vernian sea is the weak one righ tnow.
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: palisade is the healthiest, followd by clockhaven.
    [13:45] Salazar Jack: Sounds like I need to whip out my old advertisement for the Vernian…
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: the idea size for babbage was probably a 9 square.
    [13:45] Tepic Harlequin: can we expect refugees from Steeltopia?
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk shrugs
    [13:46] Tosh Harker (toshiro.tigerauge): I still meet people that dont know theres anything under the vernian, perhaps thats a factor
    [13:46] Mosseveno Tenk: it has been worse than this int eh past, i just didn’t mark it up on the map becuase i was sensing a a lot more nervousness than i am now, so i hid it.
    [13:46] Mosseveno Tenk: its hard to live in the vernian. you have ot really love the scenario.
    [13:46] Mosseveno Tenk: i will probably be raising some land off the canals. dry land, or wharfs.
    [13:46] Mosseveno Tenk: that will be back behind the libary area
    [13:47] Tepic Harlequin: is there a submarine tour to show it off?
    [13:47] Mosseveno Tenk: hmmmm, no there is not!
    [13:47] Mosseveno Tenk: that’s a good idea
    [13:47] Tesla Tripsa: I smeel a category for Oiling Festival
    [13:47] Tosh Harker (toshiro.tigerauge): grungy mudflats with buildings on stilts :3
    [13:47] Avariel Falcon: Diving equipment rental station?
    [13:47] Tesla Tripsa: smell even
    [13:47] Mosseveno Tenk: the houseboats category is to get people into wet lots……
    [13:47] Tepic Harlequin: love going though in my sub or diving kit, looks wonderful!
    [13:47] Sky Melnik (sky.netizen): Even some hunt or something to do underwater.
    [13:47] Mosseveno Tenk rubs the back of his neck
    [13:48] Mosseveno Tenk: in fact, i will probably be auctioning off the lots the houseboasts get built on for RFL, it will be up to ht ebuilders if they will want to transfer the builds or not, of course. that is not for me to say.
    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk: bugger, that was suposed to be a surprise…
    [13:49] Tosh Harker (toshiro.tigerauge): o,o
    [13:49] Tepic Harlequin: :-)
    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk grins
    [13:49] Avariel Falcon erases the memory
    [13:49] Bookworm Hienrichs looks at the empty bag in Tenk’s hand.

  6. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk March 3, 2012

    [13:50] Mosseveno Tenk: really looking forward to those houseboats.
    [13:50] Jimmy Branagh puts on sunglasses and flashes a red flashy thing.
    [13:50] Satu Moreau: XD
    [13:50] Brandon Pappentas: XD?
    [13:50] Mosseveno Tenk: does that answer your question mr. jack?
    [13:50] Salazar Jack: Indeed it does, thank you!
    [13:50] Brandon Pappentas: What is XD?
    [13:50] Satu Moreau: I promised myself no major contests or hunt participation for a year… you’re making it hard for me to keep that promise to myself
    [13:51] Salazar Jack: Here is the old advertisement I did long ago when the Vernian was first announced.
    [13:51] Salazar Jack: I will update it and then place it in a few places.
    [13:51] Jimmy Branagh: Squinty eyed grin = XD
    [13:51] Mosseveno Tenk: how can you not participate in oiling festival? its the funnest fortnight ever.
    [13:52] Brandon Pappentas: Thanks Jimmy.
    [13:52] Bookworm Hienrichs raises her hand.
    [13:52] Mosseveno Tenk: is that mayor sprocket?
    [13:52] Tepic Harlequin wonders what sort of houseboat an urchin would build……
    [13:52] Scottie Melnik: I’d put up a few posters like that.
    [13:52] Mosseveno Tenk: see? we used to have trees,,,,
    [13:52] Tesla Tripsa: There’s the advertising slogan for Oiling Festival: The Funnest Fortnight Ever!
    [13:52] Avariel Falcon: I can put up a poster at the power station.
    [13:53] Salazar Jack: Yes, that is Mayor Sprocket.
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: What is more fun than building?
    [13:53] Osric Worbridge: Well said
    [13:53] Willow Takaaki (pussywillow.sass): roleplaying
    [13:53] Salazar Jack: I shall make a poster of it as well then.
    [13:53] Satu Moreau: XD
    [13:53] Satu Moreau: That and building your own ideas you haven’t gotten around to in forever
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: roleplaying cuts into my build time. that’s the problem with it.
    [13:53] Willow Takaaki (pussywillow.sass) covers her mouth
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk grins
    [13:53] Avariel Falcon: ^_^
    [13:54] Satu Moreau: Contests and hunts always have a bad habit of taking away my me building time
    [13:54] Tesla Tripsa: RL has been cutting into my build time, still need to get something down on that lot in Wheatstone
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: roleplaying really does take a lot of time. i tend to stick with blog-rp for that reason.
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: yes. yes you do miss tripsa.
    [13:54] Willow Takaaki (pussywillow.sass): I interconnect my building and roleplay I roleplay an inventor, and so I build inventions
    [13:54] Osric Worbridge: Balls cut into building also. :D *ducks the objects thrown at him*
    [13:54] Bookworm Hienrichs feels the blood draining from her hand, but keeps it up.
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: and i’m too broke to go on any crazy adventures this year, so you got it easy.
    [13:55] Jedburgh30 Dagger: I’m sure the Daggers will be tossing more entries in this year
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: yes miss book?
    [13:55] Satu Moreau blinks confusedly at Mr. Worbridge
    [13:55] Amber Ilsker: balls+dances ?
    [13:55] Amber Ilsker: even
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk loks at Bookworm
    [13:55] Satu Moreau: Doh!
    [13:55] Amber Ilsker: =
    [13:55] Bookworm Hienrichs: My question about updating the pictures here in City Hall? I wasn’t sure if your nod was to address that, or was for something else.
    [13:55] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra): Ruddy big balls. :-p
    [13:55] Satu Moreau facepalms
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: You can hand pictures in here any time you want. i had to cut back a bit for primmage.
    [13:56] Brandon Pappentas: As in Policemans balls.
    [13:56] Jedburgh30 Dagger: Easy, new guy
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: please keep them 1 prims, no prim frames.
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: do the taper trick.
    [13:56] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
    [13:56] Bookworm Hienrichs: Well, we had specific times before. I wasn’t sure if you were still doing that.
    [13:57] Mosseveno Tenk: babbage square is always tight on prims, and since its single prim, it can’t borrow.
    [13:57] Jimmy Branagh now has an AC/DC earworm
    [13:57] Mosseveno Tenk looks at the clock
    [13:57] Satu Moreau: XD
    [13:57] Mosseveno Tenk: anyone else?
    [13:57] Mosseveno Tenk: Thank you for your time, as always.
    [13:58] Bookworm Hienrichs: Thank you, sir!
    [13:58] Satu Moreau: Thanks, Mr. Tenk!
    [13:58] Osric Worbridge: Any suggestions for a prim limit for a build contest?

    [13:58] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra): Aye.
    [13:58] Jimmy Branagh: Yhenks Mr. Clockwinder

    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: The weekly notes go out on Wednesday around 8pm, for those in Steampunks of New Babbage, for those that are new in town and haven’t found that yet.
    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: now go build!
    [13:58] Avariel Falcon: Yay!
    [13:58] Tepic Harlequin: heheh
    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk picards his waistcoat
    [13:59] Emerson Lighthouse cracks his knuckles
    [13:59] Gabrielle Anatra (gabriell.anatra) grins
    [13:59] Bookworm Hienrichs snickers.
    [13:59] Squire Malus (brother.malus) sneers
