Town Hall transcript for summer 2015

Summer town hall was held at the Bucket of Blood where the heat made everything feel sticky. Transcript follows in comments.


  • New ‘historical sketch’ roleplay notecard are in the info booths
  • Capt Hienrichs was issued a whip to get the Welcome Center built. There is no safe word.
  • Mr Tenk owns the rights to New Babbage and you’ll have to get your writing past him if you are thinking of publishing in a real book store if you intend to use New Babbage directly in your work. Zaros said similiar things with regards to Cabbits, which have their own graphic novel.
  • Zaros suggested putting some information on licensing in the info booths. General licensing has always been granted for videos and tourists, but with all the writing going on, interesting questions being raised.
  • There’s some behind the scenes talk between New Gallifrey and NB with regards to roleplay that won’t many any sense to anyone who isn’t Gallifreyan.
  • Next town hall will be in September to plan Halloween through New Year

    [12:52] Tepic Harlequin sneaks in the door……
    [12:54] Mosseveno Tenk: might be the quickets town hall ever!
    [12:54] Tepic Harlequin: ello Mr Tenk, is old Underpa…. by around?
    [12:54] Mosseveno Tenk: mr underby is out doing errands for me
    [12:54] Mosseveno Tenk: as he always is.
    [12:54] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Miss Hienrichs! Welcome back.
    [12:55] Tepic Harlequin: oh, that’s ok then…..
    [12:55] Bookworm Hienrichs: Thank you, Dr. Jekyll.
    [12:55] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx) hold the door open for her.
    [12:55] Tepic Harlequin smiles and helps himself to a beer…..

    [12:56] Bookworm Hienrichs: ((Well, *that* was odd.))
    [12:56] Bookworm Hienrichs decides she’ll stand, after all.
    [12:56] Mosseveno Tenk: oh great. lighthouse is here. there’s trouble.
    [12:56] Tepic Harlequin: ello Miss Book! an Sir Sir!
    [12:56] Bookworm Hienrichs: Hello, Tepic!
    [12:56] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): ah, miss heinrichs, i see you’ve returned from your journey
    [12:56] Mosseveno Tenk: chairs too sticky for you captain?

    [12:57] Bookworm Hienrichs: They seem not to like me, Clockwinder.
    [12:57] Emerson Lighthouse: damn – I’m stumbling all obver the place today
    [12:57] Emerson Lighthouse: and I haven’t even hit the hookah yet
    [12:57] Bookworm Hienrichs: Sat in one and went… elsewhere for a moment.
    [12:57] Emerson Lighthouse: Where is Mr. Underby? Can I sue him. That entrance is dangerous. I fell twice
    [12:57] Mosseveno Tenk: oh, that’s you being lagged. you’ll catch up
    [12:57] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Eh up *nods to the room*
    [12:57] Emerson Lighthouse: I’d settle for an out of court settlement

    [12:58] Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.
    [12:58] Bookworm Hienrichs: Good day, Ms. Blitzen.
    [12:58] Mosseveno Tenk: Sueing mr underby? /me thinks about how that would play out
    [12:58] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Greetings, Bookworm *smiles*
    [12:58] Emerson Lighthouse: I happen to be a very good lawyer
    [12:58] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): At the very least he could stand to increase the width of the staircase. I’ve heard complaints about people slipping midway up.

    [12:59] Emerson Lighthouse: see – The Doctor agrees I have a case
    [12:59] Bookworm Hienrichs: Hello, Avariel!
    [12:59] Avariel Falcon: Hello there ^_^
    [12:59] Mosseveno Tenk: HOw’s your camp build going Avariel?
    [12:59] Tepic Harlequin: ello Miss Avariel!
    [12:59] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Greetings, Avariel
    [12:59] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): i think that design is on purpose, if the stairs are to risky to traverse while drunk you’ll most likely stay in the bucket
    [12:59] Emerson Lighthouse: Hey Avariel

    [13:00] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Avariel? I haven’t seen you in months.
    [13:00] Avariel Falcon ponders splinters
    [13:00] Kea (kealani.jupiter) waves
    [13:00] Kea (kealani.jupiter): Zaros will be along in a moment
    [13:00] Mosseveno Tenk checks his watch
    [13:00] Avariel Falcon: I have been busy with business out of town
    [13:00] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:00] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Ah….
    [13:00] Bookworm Hienrichs waves to Miss Riel.

    [13:02] Zaros (zaros.xue): ‘Lo all! Had to run home to get here in time.
    [13:02] Emerson Lighthouse waves to Zaros and Kea
    [13:02] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hello, Cabbits.
    [13:02] Garnet Psaltery: Good afternoon
    [13:02] Emerson Lighthouse: Afternoon Garnet
    [13:02] Mosseveno Tenk: Righto. I do keep a transcript to post later for folks that can’t make it. It mgiht help if someone else does also in the event i lose my signal before the hour is up, which happens.
    [13:02] Tepic Harlequin: Ello!
    [13:02] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
    [13:02] Garnet Psaltery: May I join you, Eili?
    [13:02] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) nods ‘Evenin”
    [13:02] Gabrielle Riel: Hello Miss Hienrichs!
    [13:02] Mosseveno Tenk: I don’t have much on my clipboard.
    [13:02] Eilidh McCullough: Please do, Miss Garnet

    [13:03] Garnet Psaltery: Thank you
    [13:03] Bookworm Hienrichs: Mr. Melnik! Good to see you, sir.
    [13:03] Tepic Harlequin: place is packed…
    [13:03] Scottie Melnik: Good afternoon, Book! Good to see you, too!
    [13:03] Emerson Lighthouse: Hey Scottie

    [13:04] Mosseveno Tenk: Occupancy is in the low 80s, could be better but not unexpected for this time of year. Overall, we’re in the black. We’ve survived another national drinking month wihtout having to make any downsizing
    [13:04] Pilipo Underwood: Hidee ho all!
    [13:04] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) waves
    [13:04] Bookworm Hienrichs: Good day, Mr. Underwood!
    [13:04] Mosseveno Tenk: i know there’s anxiety about the future of the grid,
    [13:04] Lady Sumoku shakes fist at lag
    [13:04] Pilipo Underwood: Mss Book, Mss Wulfie
    [13:04] Mosseveno Tenk: the ‘new’ grid that the Lab is working on is called Project Sansar. it has alpha riders on it right now

    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: the best source of rumors is Jo Yardley’s blog. so do keep an eye on it
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: what i’ve heard so far sounds very good.
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: I am not saying we’ll migrate, it’s just way to early to make those kinds of decissions
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: but
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: i know this town
    [13:05] Mosseveno Tenk: and you’re only happy when you’re building

    [13:06] Mosseveno Tenk: and we’ve always been quick to embrace new tools
    [13:06] Mosseveno Tenk: soooooo
    [13:06] Mosseveno Tenk shrugs
    [13:06] Tepic Harlequin: ha! a chance ter build from the ground up!
    [13:06] Mosseveno Tenk: exactly
    [13:06] Mosseveno Tenk: and a perfect segueway to…
    [13:06] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Unless we can import from Second life.
    [13:06] Mosseveno Tenk: Mr Kondor and the school of mines will be hosting a seminar in the very near future,

    [13:06] Pilipo Underwood: One would hope
    [13:06] Mosseveno Tenk: which will be on the topic of
    [13:07] Mosseveno Tenk: what if we had to do it all again?
    [13:07] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): So far, the lab says we will be able to import some mesh things, but *not* all SL things
    [13:07] Tepic Harlequin: ello Nathan :-)
    [13:07] Gabrielle Riel: As Mr. Tenk said, it is too soon to speculate. Even a little.
    [13:07] Nathan Adored: helllo everyone
    [13:07] Pilipo Underwood: well, I’m dragging some nigh obsolete stuff, good riddance

    [13:08] Mosseveno Tenk: the layout of this town was set down ebfore anyone had a clue about what was a good idea, really. i’ve spend untold hours trying to improve things here and there, sometimes waiting for quadrants to go vacant so i can get under the streets. its a slow way of doing business
    [13:08] Mosseveno Tenk: most of us have been here a very long time,
    [13:08] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
    [13:08] Mosseveno Tenk: so i think everyone will have some great ideasa bout this topic
    [13:08] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Also, they have officially stated on their blogs that SL will be continuing to run alongside the new system for a little while.
    [13:08] Bookworm Hienrichs looks around for the cane-shakers.
    [13:08] Tepic Harlequin: wonder if they will port us over?
    [13:08] Mosseveno Tenk: i was hoping steadman could make it, but i gues his alarm didn’t go off, it’s always hard to catch up with the antipodeans

    [13:09] Mosseveno Tenk: rumor is that we’ll be able to migrate
    [13:09] Mosseveno Tenk: and there will be alts that share inventories
    [13:09] Mosseveno Tenk: also the business model is going to change so the weight of it is not on the backs of land ownership
    [13:09] Lady Sumoku: Dogs and cats, living together!
    [13:09] Tepic Harlequin: hehehhe

    [13:10] Mosseveno Tenk: i know this was an unpopular feature of Blue Mars, how they took a strong perscentage of all market sales
    [13:10] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hello, sir.
    [13:10] Gabrielle Riel: We will know more once some of us can get into late Alpha or Beta.
    [13:10] Mosseveno Tenk: but i think everyone can agree that the rent is too high, and we can’t hold this up forever like this.
    [13:10] Glaubrius Valeska: Good afternoon Babbagers
    [13:10] Zaros (zaros.xue) nods.
    [13:10] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): the rent is too damn high
    [13:10] Mosseveno Tenk: yes, i imagine there will be babbagers among the beta riders
    [13:10] Lady Sumoku nods
    [13:10] Mosseveno Tenk: i’m certainly going to try and get a ticket

    [13:11] Gabrielle Riel: Me too :-)
    [13:11] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): So what will there be for land?
    [13:11] Nathan Adored: well, the main thing that killed Blue Mars was, you had to put everybluddything that was in world into a big archive for each of the visitors to download and install first….
    [13:11] Mosseveno Tenk: we don’t know
    [13:11] Nathan Adored: well, one of th emain things….
    [13:11] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): There will be a rival launched too, High Fidelity. There may be a tug of war unless they settle their differences and join forces.
    [13:11] Mosseveno Tenk: but i can take a safe guess that land will have a higher carrying capacity than it does here
    [13:11] Nathan Adored: very very unlikely Sansar will do anthing like THAT
    [13:11] Mosseveno Tenk: yes

    [13:12] Nathan Adored: and yeah, hopefully land will take more ppl
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk: i’m not that excited abotu high fidelity, as it seems to have a higher priority on avatar interaction.
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk: i don’t want that much of my face showing here, ya know?
    [13:12] Tepic Harlequin: hehehehe
    [13:12] Lady Sumoku nods
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk: and i cderatinly am not turning on any cameras
    [13:12] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) nods

    [13:13] Nathan Adored: well, I DO prefer HiFi, simply because its meant to be totally decentralised and not have all the servers owned by one company
    [13:13] Mosseveno Tenk: so i think that will have more appeal to the less nerdy of us. we al know how we are in real life when we get together
    [13:13] Nathan Adored: I really think the Metevarse needs to move away from the walled-garden approach, such as what SL here is
    [13:13] Lady Sumoku: It’s a bit kludgy from the building stuff too, from what little I saw.
    [13:13] Mosseveno Tenk: and miss Riel there just goes… why are you all going back to yuor rooms to text when we can sit in the bar face to face?!?!??!!
    [13:13] Nathan Adored: but yeah, we’ll get a better idea whant HiFi will look like next year and after, when they come out of alpha

    [13:14] Nathan Adored: same way we’ll get a better idea what Sansar will be like next year
    [13:14] Gabrielle Riel: mmhmm
    [13:14] Mosseveno Tenk: i am glad i did not consider inworldz migration, i think this will be it’s dead end. most everyone from here that went there came back.
    [13:14] Tepic Harlequin: well, if they are like any other tech project, no worres fer the next ten years……
    [13:14] Mosseveno Tenk: so anyhoo, we’re not going anywhere this year
    [13:15] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Good.
    [13:15] Mosseveno Tenk: and prolly not going to be a serious thing to think about until next summer.
    [13:15] Mosseveno Tenk: so
    [13:15] Lady Sumoku has only logged in there once.
    [13:15] Mosseveno Tenk: on to more immediate things….
    [13:15] Glaubrius Valeska: Are the two not Linden Lab projects?
    [13:15] Mosseveno Tenk: we gotta get that welcome center built!!!!
    [13:15] Bookworm Hienrichs: I know, I know!
    [13:15] Mosseveno Tenk: the primary rezzing point being ms H’s build in the port

  2. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk July 11, 2015

    [13:16] Bookworm Hienrichs: Now that I’m back from vacation, I should have more time for it.
    [13:16] Mosseveno Tenk: and a more in depth rp orientation in a new building next door… which needs buidling on the block where the tram station and the old boarding house mock up is now
    [13:16] Bookworm Hienrichs: I have ideas. I need help making them reality. So to speak.
    [13:16] Mosseveno Tenk: it works better if you start with some demands, ms H!
    [13:16] Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.

    [13:17] Mosseveno Tenk: otherwise, it goes on and on
    [13:17] Bookworm Hienrichs: Can I borrow your stare?
    [13:17] Avariel Falcon: *whispers* Demand a shrubbery!
    [13:17] Lady Sumoku: Ni!
    [13:17] Mosseveno Tenk: believe me, it is incredibly difficult to get anything done here, considering time zones
    [13:17] Mosseveno Tenk: and hardware breakage
    [13:17] Mosseveno Tenk: and monsoons…
    [13:17] Mosseveno Tenk: “the usual delays”
    [13:17] Bookworm Hienrichs ndos.
    [13:17] Pilipo Underwood: And Burning Man
    [13:17] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): Labour dificulties
    [13:17] Lady Sumoku still owes Mr. Tenk a clock trapped on an argumentative XP machine.
    [13:17] Avariel Falcon: RFL
    [13:17] Mosseveno Tenk: if you want somethign to happen, you need to pick up the chain and drag that anchor !

    [13:18] Zaros (zaros.xue): Is there not a group for the welcome center build team?
    [13:18] Mosseveno Tenk: this is where you say YES, mis Heinrichs
    [13:18] Mosseveno Tenk: o-o
    [13:18] Zaros (zaros.xue): ‘Cause that’d be my first port of call, get everyone interested, even if just occasional help. :P
    [13:18] Avariel Falcon: ^_^

    [13:19] Bookworm Hienrichs: Erm… OK. Assuming I remember how to create one.
    [13:19] Bookworm Hienrichs smiles sheepishly.
    [13:19] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): I think it costs about 100L to create a group.
    [13:19] Mosseveno Tenk: right… who can we get to build the new tram station boarding house complex? tehre’s lots of old oiling festival entries that need a good home
    [13:19] Mosseveno Tenk: those builds are both getting dated
    [13:19] Lady Sumoku: Maybe we should have a “public works” group, akin to the Engineers but more specialized?

    [13:20] Zaros (zaros.xue): If need be I can make a group and set you up as the owner of it, shoot me some IMs after the meeting and I’ll help you out Book.
    [13:20] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Speaking of the oiling festival, one of the exhibit halls are still here, with the entires collecting dust inside.
    [13:20] Mosseveno Tenk: i don’t like a whole lot of groups, personally. nothing that can’t be said to everyone.
    [13:20] Zaros (zaros.xue): I’d offer to do the boarding house but me and Kea are up to our eyes right now, we’re learning substance designer to speed builds up. It’s what’s holding our guild up.

    [13:21] Mosseveno Tenk: Yeah, i do that until someone buys the lot, the Tomanah Hall vanishes into the smog again,
    [13:21] Mosseveno Tenk: no one knows where it will reappear come spring
    [13:21] Tepic Harlequin: a peripetatic building…..
    [13:21] Emerson Lighthouse: If you need any writing done for it or maybe some posters, IM me
    [13:21] Mosseveno Tenk: this place would fall into the sea if we stopped building. never doubt it
    [13:21] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Oh. Thank you for clearing that up.

    [13:22] Mosseveno Tenk issues Bookworm a whip
    [13:22] Mosseveno Tenk: Capt Heinrichs, in the immortal words of Ralph Bakshi
    [13:22] Mosseveno Tenk: Where there’s a whip, there’s a way
    [13:22] Pilipo Underwood: Do we need a safe word?
    [13:22] Mosseveno Tenk: No.
    [13:23] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): O-o
    [13:23] Zaros (zaros.xue): Hardcore, I see.
    [13:23] Nathan Adored: oO
    [13:23] Mosseveno Tenk grins
    [13:23] Bookworm Hienrichs coughs.
    [13:23] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) chuckles
    [13:23] Pilipo Underwood blanches when he realizes he said that out loud.
    [13:23] Mosseveno Tenk: now i’m going to have that song stuck in my head the rest the day….

    [13:24] Mosseveno Tenk: righto… writing projects
    [13:24] Nathan Adored: is the remaining OIling Festival building the one with the books and taxadermies and stuff in it?
    [13:24] Dr. Henry Jekyll: Yes.

    [13:25] Nathan Adored: I guess that explains why my OF stuff hasn’t been returned yet. :D
    [13:25] Wulfriðe Blitzen : If I get the bookshop sorted eventually and have enough prims, the book entries will be welcome to be sold in the shop
    [13:25] Nathan Adored: kewl
    [13:25] Nathan Adored: could we add more books then if we wanted?
    [13:25] Dr. Henry Jekyll: I think she already let me put my entry there.
    [13:26] Zaros: Tenk’s offline, give him a sec.
    [13:26] Wulfriðe Blitzen : I don’t see why not. It would be nice for the folk to have that there

    [13:26] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Yes, Dr. Jekyll has kindly donated his already.
    [13:26] Tepic Harlequin: the curse of the Clockwinder’s Connection!
    [13:26] Avariel Falcon: Tis a most horrible curse!
    [13:27] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:27] Lady Sumoku: If only you could wind up WiFi
    [13:27] Nathan Adored gets a goofy, lopsided smile.
    [13:27] Mosseveno Tenk is online.
    [13:27] Avariel Falcon: Yay!
    [13:27] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Welcome back.

    [13:28] Lady Sumoku: He found the slot and added a nickel
    [13:28] Nathan Adored: wb mr clockminder
    [13:28] Mosseveno Tenk: quick hiccup
    [13:28] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
    [13:28] Mosseveno Tenk: dn’t let me vanishing stop the discussion
    [13:28] Mosseveno Tenk: where was i… writing projects?
    [13:28] Bookworm Hienrichs: OK, for those who like groups, I’ve created a group. New Babbage Welcome Center Build.
    [13:28] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Yes.
    [13:28] Scottie Melnik: Yup.
    [13:28] Zaros (zaros.xue): Yup.
    [13:28] Mosseveno Tenk: you guys are amazing, really.
    [13:29] Mosseveno Tenk: stargirl hasn’t had a chance to read all teh flash entries yet, that should get sorted next week. and i might use that for formatting practice.

    [13:30] Mosseveno Tenk: you might have heard me and she have been working on a novel together, we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and its a little scary. so that’s what i do for my babbage fix when i can’t log in
    [13:30] Lady Sumoku cheers
    [13:30] Bookworm Hienrichs applauds.
    [13:30] Avariel Falcon: Yay!
    [13:30] Mosseveno Tenk: i do need to say something tho… i own the rights to new babbage. if you are thinking of self publishing a babbage story, you need to get it past me. please.
    [13:30] Jimmy Branagh waves
    [13:30] Myrtil Igaly: ‘ello!
    [13:30] Lady Sumoku: Welcome back!
    [13:30] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Thanks for letting us know.

  3. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk July 11, 2015

    [13:31] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hello, Jimmy and Myrtil.
    [13:31] Bookworm Hienrichs: Hoy, Jimmy and Myrtil!
    [13:31] Scottie Melnik: Is there anything we should know right off before approaching you about such a thing, Tenk?
    [13:31] Mosseveno Tenk: i know that sounds harsh, but i think it needs to be said before things go any further, because you folks love stories, and you’re all getting better at it.
    [13:31] Tepic Harlequin: ello Jimmy an Myrtil!
    [13:31] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) waves
    [13:31] Mosseveno Tenk: eh, i want to see what you’re writing. i don’t want bad babbage fan fiction hitting the ebook stores.

    [13:32] Myrtil Igaly: Hey Tep!
    [13:32] Mosseveno Tenk: blogging roleplay is one thing
    [13:32] Mosseveno Tenk: publishing…
    [13:32] Mosseveno Tenk cringes
    [13:32] Gabrielle Riel writes some notes to herself
    [13:32] Glaubrius Valeska: It’s necessary to preserve the integrity of the place, Herr Uhrmeister.
    [13:32] Mosseveno Tenk: we can talk about that one on one if that becomes a situation for anyone.
    [13:32] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): There is a lovely collective pride in the city though when it comes to writing stories.

    [13:33] Emerson Lighthouse nods to Ms Blitzen
    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk: ceejay’s book was definately about new babbage, tho she chose to change the pronouns for her own reasons, which i think were wise.
    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk: yes, there is wulfie.
    [13:33] Gabrielle Riel: And a respect in the wide world outside of SL. Guard that reputation.
    [13:33] Bookworm Hienrichs: It really is staggering, the amount of writing that’s been produced here.
    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk checks his watch
    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk: yep

    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: does anyone have calander items to be nailed down for the next few months?
    [13:34] Pilipo Underwood: ‘s’why I came here seven years ago, no builder I
    [13:34] Tepic Harlequin: there’s a book in everyone tryin ter get out…… shame fer some it’s the Necrotelecomunication……
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk keeps one eye on his airport utility light to see if he is still online
    [13:34] Lady Sumoku: You are… for now.
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: woo
    [13:34] Zaros (zaros.xue): I was going to offer to host the next tavern tuesday but I’m going in for my final root canal appointment followed by a bunch of other events I’ve been asked to attend. I’ll get in touch with you for the following tuesday though.

    [13:35] Mosseveno Tenk: traditionally, august is the air kraken festival
    [13:35] Mosseveno Tenk: ewwww!
    [13:35] Mosseveno Tenk: root canal
    [13:35] Nathan Adored: ouchies
    [13:35] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Ouch
    [13:35] Zaros (zaros.xue): Yup. :P
    [13:35] Myrtil Igaly: ouch
    [13:35] Bookworm Hienrichs: Good luck with that!
    [13:35] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Good luck…
    [13:35] Nathan Adored winces, picturing it
    [13:35] Gabrielle Riel: RE: calendar, we might have a few bumps in Clarendon events in the next month.
    [13:35] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): And air krakens?
    [13:35] Mosseveno Tenk: my opinion on festivals and such is they only work twice, so i don’t like to force events. i’m amazed the oiling festival still flies!
    [13:35] Gabrielle Riel: Edward’s hard drive died. He does have all the audio dramas, so Riel Theatre will be fine.

    [13:36] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): a root canal still isn’t as bad as the telford.
    [13:36] Mosseveno Tenk: ahhhh, ok
    [13:36] Jimmy Branagh: The challenge keeps it goin’
    [13:36] Tepic Harlequin: the Oiling Festival is different each time….
    [13:36] Gabrielle Riel: But I am not sure about Breakfast and FTF in the near future.
    [13:36] Nathan Adored: so, does that mean he lost all his tuneage? oO
    [13:36] Mosseveno Tenk secretly hopes he loses the weird al folder….
    [13:36] Gabrielle Riel: Almost all of it Nathan
    [13:36] Zaros (zaros.xue): Vic is going to cover Ed’s FTFs if he isn’t on for them.
    [13:36] Nathan Adored: Oo
    [13:36] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): his tunes are on the affected HD yes
    [13:36] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): I think Vic still has FTF if Lord Pearse is unable to recover.
    [13:36] Jimmy Branagh: Ed didn;t have backup?

    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk: oh, did i say that?
    [13:37] Lady Sumoku: It was up in the air last night.
    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk grins
    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk: just kidding
    [13:37] Pilipo Underwood seconds Clockwinder’s secret hope
    [13:37] Nathan Adored: so, no chance of it going to one of those contents-salvager companies?
    [13:37] Lady Sumoku: I can replace most of his Weird Al. :P
    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk: he is taking it to a professional recovery shop
    [13:37] Gabrielle Riel: No backup. Not sure on the Weird Al. He said his “comedy stuff” was ok.
    [13:37] Nathan Adored reminds himself to make backups-backups-backups… OO
    [13:37] Pilipo Underwood: expendive, as my German cousin sez
    [13:37] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) glares at Lady
    [13:37] Tepic Harlequin: backups, floks, backups……
    [13:37] Gabrielle Riel: I am not sure if he includes Al in comedy.

    [13:38] Jimmy Branagh: My comp is in it’s death throes. I’m backing up every day now
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: that would be his church folder….
    [13:38] Emerson Lighthouse: I just back it up all online now
    [13:38] Bookworm Hienrichs: Eep!
    [13:38] Jimmy Branagh: I dun put nuffin’ online
    [13:38] Jimmy Branagh: hehe
    [13:38] Gabrielle Riel: Me too Emerson. Use that cloud!
    [13:38] Avariel Falcon: I use timemachine
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: i put important things online since i lost the real estate spreadsheet in a harddrive crash…
    [13:38] Lady Sumoku: I have one of those network drives, but Windows backup keeps failing. I need to replace it.
    [13:38] Pilipo Underwood: Have a service for that Em, or cloud?
    [13:38] Nathan Adored: well, if you put your stuff on the cloud, the NSA has it too…

    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk: that was a royal pain to reconstruct
    [13:39] Zaros (zaros.xue): I was going to suggest something…. could we maybe have a little info snippet in the welcome center about publishing? Asking all the relevant copyright holders and the like. So you for general New Babbage Mr. Tenk, me and Kea for Cabbits, Vic for Brunel etc etc?
    [13:39] Nathan Adored pokes the nearest NSA agent in the eye, catching him off guard.
    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk notes that
    [13:39] Jimmy Branagh: I’m big on hardcopies
    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk: good idea zaros
    [13:39] Gabrielle Riel shudders at hearing “lost real estate spreadsheet”
    [13:39] Tepic Harlequin: hhehhehe if everyone put their stuff on the Could, there would be too much fer the NSA to do anything with!

    [13:40] Zaros (zaros.xue): It’s just I have two cabbit graphic novels coming out next year, I’m not too keen on people grabbing them up without asking for permission first or getting permission for Babbage then assuming that includes cabbits.
    [13:40] Nathan Adored: Nah, they’d find a way…. oO
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: there’s an update on the ‘historical sketch’ roleplay notecard, it should be in all the info stations now
    [13:40] Emerson Lighthouse: cloud and Google docs, Pilipo
    [13:40] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hm
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: google docs works for me

    [13:41] Glaubrius Valeska: I greatly enjoyed working with Bookworm on Google Docs.
    [13:41] Dr. Henry Jekyll: Google docs doesn’t do so well for blog posts. Too much unnecessary coding.
    [13:41] Bookworm Hienrichs: I use it for blog posts, Dr. Jekyll.
    [13:41] Pilipo Underwood: Tardis?
    [13:41] Zaros: Click the booth for a copy.
    [13:42] Tepic Harlequin: portable loo?
    [13:42] Zaros: Stick ’em out for tourists and newbies.
    [13:42] Zaros: Should have the latest RP info in there too.
    [13:42] Pilipo Underwood: Buy it for a copy?
    [13:42] Zaros: Yeah, you’d get a copy of it.
    [13:42] Bookworm Hienrichs: Oops. There he goes again.
    [13:42] Lady Sumoku: There he goes again.
    [13:42] Zaros: Should be full perm.
    [13:42] Zaros: I’ll stick the poster out too.
    [13:42] Bookworm Hienrichs: You owe me a Coke, Lady Sumoku.
    [13:42] Bookworm HienrichsBookworm Hienrichs grins.
    [13:43] Zaros: Feel free to give them out but please don’t sell them. :P
    [13:43] Tepic Harlequin: plane taking

    [13:45] Tepic Harlequin: wb!
    [13:45] Jimmy Branagh: wb Mr. Tenk
    [13:45] Bookworm Hienrichs: Welcome back, sir.
    [13:45] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Uh… Why is that information booth in the tavern?
    [13:45] Myrtil Igaly: Welcome back Mister Mayor!
    [13:45] Tales from New Babbage tipjar: Thank you, Nathan Adored!
    [13:45] Pilipo Underwood: What information booth?
    [13:45] Lady Sumoku ceases the SNL stuff before she gets the stare.
    [13:45] Scottie Melnik: This is just not your day, Tenk.
    [13:45] Jimmy Branagh: So yas can gets informed loike!
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk dusts himself off
    [13:45] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) throws an anchor at Mr. Tenk and lashes him to the bar.
    [13:45] Tepic Harlequin: darned informers!

  4. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk July 11, 2015

    [13:46] Zaros (zaros.xue): Click it to get a copy, stick them out for newbies and tourists. Basically a newer version of the old immigration booths.
    [13:46] Mosseveno Tenk: i’ll need someoen to pass me a chat log starting at 13:24 when we are done
    [13:46] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.

    [13:47] Zaros (zaros.xue): As I said earlier, feel free to give them out but please don’t sell them, they’re meant to be a freebie for the city.
    [13:47] Jimmy Branagh: Ooh, me too please, unless I didn;t miss anything …
    [13:47] Emerson Lighthouse: Thanks Zaros
    [13:47] Bookworm Hienrichs: Yes, thank you, Zaros.
    [13:47] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Do you think there will be posters given out for free as well?
    [13:47] Emerson Lighthouse tucks the tardis in his pocket

    [13:48] Bookworm Hienrichs smiles. “Hello, Sera!”
    [13:48] Avariel Falcon: But… think of the untapped information booth market!
    [13:48] Pilipo Underwood: ty Zaros
    [13:48] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:48] Emerson Lighthouse: Hey Sera!
    [13:48] Mosseveno Tenk: ah… piermont landing… fyi mrs fabre-carver is in very unusual circumstances, which is why i’m letting her ride. i do not normally let folks ride their meters that long. she misses everyone and is working hard to get her way back home so we can have balls again.
    [13:48] Zaros (zaros.xue): The posters can be given out for free too, again don’t sell them.
    [13:48] Pilipo Underwood: Que Sera? Sera?
    [13:48] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): thank you.
    [13:48] Bookworm Hienrichs: I do hope things settle down for her soon.
    [13:48] Jimmy Branagh: People may think it’s a Time Lord kidnap device, cleverly disguised
    [13:48] Mosseveno Tenk: time lords!
    [13:48] Tepic Harlequin at the thought of Mr Tenk having no…. errrrr….
    [13:48] Lady Sumoku hopes so too
    [13:48] Zaros (zaros.xue) whispers: “So we can have balls again.” Hmmm…

    [13:49] Bookworm Hienrichs: Let her know we miss her, too!
    [13:49] Sera (serafina.puchkina) whispers: Hello Book, hello everyone
    [13:49] Tepic Harlequin: LOL !!! :D :D :D !!!
    [13:49] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hello, Sera.
    [13:49] Jimmy Branagh: Hoy Miss Sera
    [13:49] Emerson Lighthouse high fives Zaros
    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk: i got contacted with someone from new gallifrey about providing a liason for here, i referred her to MOrnington because i didn’t want to have to figure out what they’re talking about!
    [13:49] Avariel Falcon: ^_^
    [13:49] Bookworm Hienrichs chuckles.

    [13:50] Mosseveno Tenk: so not sure where that goes, but if you are involved with time lord rp, there that is
    [13:50] Avariel Falcon: Its all timey wimey and wibbly wobbly stuff
    [13:50] Jimmy Branagh: Toime Lords are just tourists an’ … never moind. Oy din;t say nuffin’.
    [13:50] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:50] Zaros (zaros.xue): Ah New Gallifrey, yeah… they’re doing a roleplay that isn’t exactly canon New Babbage but runs alongside it fairly well.
    [13:50] Pilipo Underwood: Good thing they don’t really exist
    [13:50] Mosseveno Tenk: my only policy on time lords is that if i find anyone trying to hide a console at high elevation without owning the land under it. i’m banning.
    [13:50] Jimmy Branagh: Yesh
    [13:50] Zaros (zaros.xue): Just treat them as crazy people, that’s what I do. :P

    [13:51] Lady Sumoku: As long as the city isn’t infested with Cyberwiggyfish while Tenk is away.
    [13:51] Mosseveno Tenk: i find the visiting ones provide a bit of surreal sillyness and they’re fun to mess with
    [13:51] Nathan Adored: Yeah, tho occasionally New Gallifrey RP indirectly touches on New Babbage RP… LIke that throw away line some months back in NG RP about Vikinfgs suddenly appearing to chase some hapless Time Lord down the streets of New Babbage. :D
    [13:51] Jimmy Branagh: brb
    [13:51] Nathan Adored: *Vikings
    [13:51] Bookworm Hienrichs snerks.
    [13:51] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): I don’t know, the cabbits and Mornington have been tinkering with the technology,
    [13:51] Mosseveno Tenk: yes, it does. and if you’re not a time lord it makes no sense at all to you. i’m treating it as a secret society.

    [13:52] Mosseveno Tenk: that i wouldn’t know about as just plain folks.
    [13:52] Nathan Adored gets a goofy, lopsided smile.
    [13:52] Scottie Melnik: Someone needs to make one that’s just a liiiiiittle bit bigger and set it right over the other Tardis, so when the owner returns to click on it nothing happens.
    [13:52] Tepic Harlequin: well, we have zombies, martians and such, a hord of Vikings wouldn’t be remarked on, i guess?
    [13:52] Nathan Adored giggles and chortles
    [13:52] Mosseveno Tenk: you nevre know waht’s going to crawl out of the sewer next
    [13:52] Avariel Falcon: Its a little bit bigger on the outside!
    [13:52] Gabrielle Riel grins
    [13:52] Mosseveno Tenk: getting up to the top of the hour.
    [13:52] Tepic Harlequin: usually it’s me, Mr Tenk……
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: No calendar events to hammer down for the next couple months?
    [13:53] Tepic Harlequin: all gone a bit quiet…
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: next town hall will be …,mmm september, so we can plan halloween through new years
    [13:53] Nathan Adored: true, but a crowd of Vikings chasing someone down the streets here, and then mysteriously vanishing…? There’s GOTTA be an RP IC reaction to THAT afterwards! :D
    [13:53] Zaros (zaros.xue): Halloweeeen! <3

    [13:54] Avariel Falcon: Less alcohol for Mr Mornington this year!
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: no worse than the marshmellow man that trampled clockhaven. it was a good drill for the militia to take care of
    [13:54] Zaros (zaros.xue): I want Vic to do an early Halloween party again, I really can’t get enough.
    [13:54] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:54] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): as long as it’s something i can shoot back into the sewer
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: babbage highland games… the sewer cover fling toss

    [13:55] Bookworm Hienrichs laughs.
    [13:55] Pilipo Underwood: Whatever happend to the Roof Run, or did I miss it?
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: roof run got delayed by mr holmes’ thesis
    [13:55] Bookworm Hienrichs: Pesky things, theses.
    [13:55] Avariel Falcon nods
    [13:55] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) nods

    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: which is coming to completion.. then there will be mr holmes first job hunt….
    [13:56] Pilipo Underwood: theses and thatses
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: but he hasn’t fogotten
    [13:56] Zaros (zaros.xue): Damn, Kea’s sat down again… I should of messed with her computer. :P
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: ooh, evil roomate games
    [13:56] Kea (kealani.jupiter): ;_;
    [13:56] Avariel Falcon: ^_^
    [13:56] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Job hunt? What does he plan to hire for?
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: ms falcon, do we get a preview of your rlf build?
    [13:56] Jimmy Branagh: kback

    [13:57] Mosseveno Tenk: or a hint?
    [13:57] Lady Sumoku: Or cookies?
    [13:57] Avariel Falcon: Pol is in America for three weeks so as she is 50% of our build team we decided to skip building a campsite this year
    [13:57] Mosseveno Tenk: very relaxing, ain’t it?

    [13:58] Avariel Falcon: I’ll be plodding around the track for 24hours though
    [13:58] Nathan Adored: hmmmmmmm…. purple colored cookies. ㋡
    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: rfl always falls on the wrong weeekend for me, and i hate having to try and juggle that
    [13:58] Tepic Harlequin: fraid i goaat run, night all!
    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: nite tepic

    [13:58] Myrtil Igaly: Good night Tepic!
    [13:58] Lady Sumoku: Goat run?
    [13:58] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Goodnight Tepic.
    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: goat run.. hmmmm
    [13:58] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Goodnight, Tepic
    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: there’s an event in that somwhere…
    [13:58] Lady Sumoku: Egads now I owe Tenk a Coke too.
    [13:58] Jimmy Branagh: Noight Tepic
    [13:58] Myrtil Igaly: he’s a hungry fox
    [13:58] Avariel Falcon: Goat run sounds like it could be fun

    [13:59] Lady Sumoku: Or Pepsi. No Coke.
    [13:59] Mosseveno Tenk: someone handle that!
    [13:59] Mosseveno Tenk: we have to have a goat run for good luck
    [13:59] Mosseveno Tenk: so the city won’t burn again
    [13:59] Avariel Falcon ponders the need for an engoatanisation ray
    [13:59] Jimmy Branagh: Goats seem to be all in vogue lately
    [13:59] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Especially since we had that goat monument.

    [14:00] Lady Sumoku: It’s that darned Chupacabra.
    [14:00] Glaubrius Valeska: Oh my, a serendipitous event! Goat races!
    [14:00] Gabrielle Riel laughs

    [14:01] Nathan Adored gets a goofy, lopsided smile.
    [14:01] Jimmy Branagh: Could be like the running of the bulls
    [14:01] Sera (serafina.puchkina): Yes!
    [14:01] Nathan Adored: *our
    [14:01] Nathan Adored: So, if someone stole the statue, would that mean that they…. genuinely got or goat? oO
    [14:01] Mosseveno Tenk: oh, dr J, the trick to get your google doc into a clean blog post is to paste it into notepad first. or use the Tx button which removes all formatting
    [14:01] Emerson Lighthouse: I don’t like bulls. They are just meaner cows than normal
    [14:01] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Ah.
    [14:01] Pilipo Underwood: Too bad CeeJay isn’t here. There’s a Firesign Theater joke about goat races.
    [14:01] Bookworm Hienrichs nods.
    [14:01] Zaros (zaros.xue): Notepad is a life saver.

    [14:02] Avariel Falcon: Anything could happen, its like someone stole the giant straw goat and replaced it with a pile of ashes last year!
    [14:02] Lady Sumoku: The villains!
    [14:02] Nathan Adored: did…. did we ever find the straw goat after that? oO
    [14:02] Mosseveno Tenk: righto. top of the hour. i won’t hold you, but town hall is officially done. if you want to stay and chat i’ll stay too.
    [14:02] Lady Sumoku: Das Goat
    [14:02] Avariel Falcon: Yay!

    [14:03] Pilipo Underwood: Schneeeelllllleeeerrrrr!
    [14:03] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): such a dastardly act
    [14:03] Emerson Lighthouse: I have to go peel potatoes – see everyone later.
    [14:03] Sera (serafina.puchkina): Bye Emerson
    [14:03] Jimmy Branagh: See ya Mr. Emerson!
    [14:03] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Goodbye.
    [14:03] Pilipo Underwood: Jurgen Prochnow on the goat statue racing through the straits of Gibralter
    [14:03] Avariel Falcon: Time for more wanderings
    [14:03] Lady Sumoku: Take care!
    [14:03] Zaros (zaros.xue): So your steelehead trip Mr. Tenk, will you be gone just a week?
    [14:03] Avariel Falcon unicorn hugs
    [14:03] Myrtil Igaly: See you Mister Emerson!
    [14:03] Prof (professor.woodsheart): Forgive me I have to fly.. Nice to meet you all in one place – if anywhere is needed to display or sell books or oiling festival items the Emporium is at your service..
    [14:03] Zaros (zaros.xue): Night Emerson!

    [14:04] Avariel Falcon: Goodnight Mr Lighthouse
    [14:04] Emerson Lighthouse: The Bucket! I’m going to have to clean my boots when I get home.
    [14:04] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) waves
    [14:04] Jimmy Branagh: Noight Mr. Prof
    [14:04] Zaros (zaros.xue): Night Prof.
    [14:04] Garnet Psaltery: Well, time for tea, I think :o)
    [14:04] Myrtil Igaly: yes it’s all sticky
    [14:04] Nathan Adored: sweet dreams prof.
    [14:04] Prof (professor.woodsheart): Goodnight all…
    [14:04] Garnet Psaltery: Good evening
    [14:04] Myrtil Igaly: Good bye Professor!
    [14:04] Eilidh McCullough: Good evening all
    [14:04] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Ah, Mr. Wright? Out of mere curiosity, where is your hat?
    [14:04] Sera (serafina.puchkina): Good eve, everyone!

    [14:05] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): i don’t always wear a hat you know
    [14:05] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): You usually do.
    [14:05] Zaros (zaros.xue): Any eta on the city hall getting finished?
    [14:05] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): I was afraid something terrible might have happened.

    [14:06] Jimmy Branagh: The builder just bought Philomena
    [14:06] Myrtil Igaly: The builder?
    [14:06] Wright Davis (wrightguy0) shakes his head. “Fear not, its safe with the rest of my wardrobe.”
    [14:06] Nathan Adored: church of the builders?
    [14:06] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Ah, good.
    [14:06] Zaros (zaros.xue): ‘Tis a mystery.
    [14:06] Jimmy Branagh: No, the guy building Town Hall
    [14:06] Myrtil Igaly: aaah Blake

    [14:07] Jimmy Branagh: Yeh him
    [14:07] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): He must have forgotten about building city hall.
    [14:07] Zaros (zaros.xue): Yeah, I like the statue outside and it looks gorgeous as a build, I just wanna know when we can wander in there again, I used to love just randomly walking the halls.
    [14:07] Jimmy Branagh: Oy always loiked goin’ in there an’ shoutin’ rude thangs an’ hear them echo.

    [14:08] Myrtil Igaly: hehe
    [14:08] Jimmy Branagh: things*
    [14:08] Myrtil Igaly: yes there was a good echo in there
