Vance: I'll see if I can find some of the urls, and Marco can see where Felix lives ...
Felix: I remember you because I saw lots of people diving.
Trendsetter: Ohh. I`m from spain and I have to say that I miss it a lot, maybee because of the cold german weather.
Vance: You thought about me. You can't remember me unless we are in a time warp.
Vance: From where in Spain?
Trendsetter: My father is from a small village near Leon in the north.
Felix: these are the URl's
Felix: what is a time warp?
Vance: Great. You should link them on your web site.
Felix: i will post the pics there... I think it's better.
Vance: A time warp is like, I'm coming to visit you in brazil, but because of the time warp, I've actually already been there.
Vance: So you remember me from the time I was there (time warp).
Vance: Sorry, "warp" means to be bent out of shape, like a cassette left in your car in the sun.
Vance: For example, Trendsetter thinks he's insane, but Maggi thinks he's warped.
Vance: Someone can have a "warped" sense of humor.
Vance: It means strange, or not in the correct shape.
Felix: oh ok
Maggi: Don't you watch Star Trek...
