Vance: I was just chatting with Felix on ICQ and he invited me over.
Michael C: Yes. I actually cancelled today's class because no one came but then Brazil/Bahia/Felix turned up.
Michael C: You're very welcome Vance.
Michael C: But I guess there won't be any lesson. Just chat.
Brazil: Did you all received an E-mail from The Palace about a bug in the program ??
Vance: Yeah, I did.
Vance: So we have to download the new version
Michael C: I have to go in about 15 minutes..no I didn't receive such an email.
Brazil: YEsterday I downloaded the update file and when I tried to install it froze my computer
Vance: There's a hole in security in the old version
Brazil: I received it this week michael
Michael C: ^Could someone send me this message? To firstname.lastname@example.org
Michael C: What does a hole in security mean Vance?
Vance: I just queued a message for you, Michael.
Michael C: Thanks Vance.
Brazil: I sent it just now Michael
Michael C: So I get it twice!
Vance: You beat me
Vance: No, I haven't sent mine yet
Vance: I'll unqueue it
Michael C: OK...
Brazil: what is queued ??
Vance: A queue is a line, like for a bus
Vance: So my messages are in a queue and then they get sent
Brazil: oh ok
Michael C: Is that the real you?
Vance: By hole in security, I mean it is possible for someone to get data on or off your machine through the hole
Brazil: I am
Michael C: ah - I remember!
Brazil: It's me
Vance: That's you?
Michael C: That's sounds reasonably serious.
Vance: Nice. You can see my pic on my web page
Brazil: i am laughing
Brazil: I will vance
Brazil: I am smiling in the pic..
Vance: They said that no one had actually exploited the hole, only that they discovered it is possible
Michael C: Are you taking an EFI class this time round Vance?
Brazil: Vance and Michael, could you send me your pics ?
Vance: Yeah, I'm teaching on Tuesday
Vance: Brazil, you can download my pic from the web page at ...
Brazil: oh ok
Michael C: What time? (I guess I could check the schedule...)
Brazil: Michael ?
Vance: I teach at 11 gmt on Tuesday (to 1300)
Vance: And I need to ask you if you teach at that time on Sunday
Michael C: Same thing - http://wwwchariot.net.au/michaelc
Vance: because Felix has just asked for a class at that time
Vance: Actually, it's good to teach back to back, more convenient for the students
Brazil: I wanted to meet more students but the schedule is a big problem
Michael C: My class time is 11.00 pm locally so that's about 3 or 4 pm GMT.
Brazil: what do you mean Vance ?
Vance: I mean, if a student comes to my class at noon GMT
Brazil: I am completely lost at GMT
Vance: Oh, it's 14:30 gmt right now
Brazil: So GMT is 3 hours ahead of me
Vance: Double click on the clock at the lower left of your MS Window
Michael C: So that means I start this class at 13.30 GMT.
Vance: and select "time zone"
Brazil: oh ok
Vance: And you will see what time it is where you are in relation to GMT
Vance: One trick: London is GMT plus 1
Brazil: oh ok thanks
Michael C: I gotta go guys....I'm working on some muisc listening exercises for EFI students.
Vance: I've got to run. My wife is expecting me to pick her up from shpping
