Chat with students Ying Lan and Felix and Roner from Brazil, and teachers Maggi and Vance

April 16, 2000

I arrived at the Palace to find Felix waiting there.  I was at my office playing with NetMeeting, and Felix agreed to hook up with me.  We made the connection but because Felix had an older version of the software than I did, he could see and hear me but I couldn’t see or hear him.  Felix lost his connection, but meanwhile Maggi had come on, and she and I sat for a while at the Palace talking.  Eventually I started installing CU-See-me on my computer.  It was taking up the whole screen, but my computer started talking to me.  It was Ying Lan.  I recognized her voice.  So I pressed F9 and talked to her although I couldn’t see any of my applications except the install screen.  Still the hearme chat worked and we were able to converse.  By then Felix had rejoined Maggi at the Palace.  Just as Ying Lan had decided to join the two of them, Felix’s friend Roner appeared in the voice chat.  I told Felix and he left the Palace to join Roner and I at the voice chat site.  From that point, I chatted with Roner and Felix by voice and by text in the voice chat area, while Maggi and Ying Lan conducted girl-talk in the Palace.  I was in both places, but paying most attention to the guys in the voice chat.  I wasn’t sure if the girls wanted me to join them, but when the guys left I did.  Eventually the conversation wound down and I was left all by myself.

  Felix:            brb

  Maggi:            who knows...Ming is still there but on my list

  Vance:            Felix and I are trying to establish netmeeting contact

  Vance:            Felix can see and hear me but I can't see or hear him.

  Maggi:            I am peeling potatoes

  Vance:            Did you just get my icq message?

  Maggi:            yes I did and answered it

  Maggi:            it's hanging

  Vance:            It was hung in send through server.  I sent it.

  Maggi:            it went

  Vance:            I got the reply.  I was hoping I could use it to add you to my buddy list.  Ok ..

  Maggi:            so what is with Ying?

  Vance:            This time I'm going to delete you from this machine and start over.

  Maggi:            not on the list eh?

  Vance:            No, not on this one.

  Maggi:            I see you thoughahhh...getting deleted...again

  Vance:            ok, adding user 10343718

  Maggi:            I wish I could make this thing fit right

  Vance:            I've got a very irritating banner add.  Have you got it?

  Maggi:            then I could see what I type

  Maggi:            no

  Maggi:            old version

  Maggi:            ok...did it again

  Maggi:            says it worked

  Maggi:            nce lady

  Vance:            I have to add Ying and Felix to my list here.

  Maggi:            they both left

  Vance:            I added Ying but don't see her online

  Maggi:            they aren't there

  Vance:            still there?

  Maggi:            only you me and my potatoes

  Maggi:            god that chicken smells good!

  Maggi:            must be busy that Vance

  Vance:            I was trying to add felix but I see I have an authorization problem there too.  Is he online?

  Maggi:            no

  Maggi:            they both left

  Vance:            ok maybe we should just hang out for an hour or so.  Are you cooking dinner?

  Vance:            Something smells good over here.

  Maggi:   is driving me nuts

  Maggi:   smells good

  Maggi:            just peeling potatoes while I wait for a response

  Vance:            That was neat being able to get a video image out to Felix.  I think Nicia was using Netmeeting too.

  Vance:            I have to type between banner add appearances.

  Maggi:            can't you get rid of it?

  Maggi:            Nicia is working on an interesting project.

  Vance:            How?

  Maggi:            close it?

  Maggi:            zap it into the nether ether?

  Maggi:            push buttons

  Vance:            Naw, I moved it off screen and it jumped back on.  I closed it, it returned.

  Maggi:            that sort of thing makes me less interested in updating regardless of the bells and whitsles

  Vance:            It is a living organism ... the CURSE of the banner AD!!!

  Maggi:            hmmm

  Vance:            This is the most obnoxious one yet.  Most of them will stay buried behind another window.

  Maggi:            can't you make it small and send it down under?

  Maggi:            the next curse on humanity...wse need a hacker to solve this

  Vance:            So you gave up on your download?  How are you gonna get that file.  You should be loading it in now.

  Maggi:            don't sweat it...I'll get it...

  Maggi:            nobody here anyway

  Maggi:            well...except you...

  Vance:            I wonder if Maggie got the Palace.

  Maggi:            and you've heard my voice.

  Maggi:            don't know

  Maggi:            saw her earlier

  Maggi:            didn't ask

  Vance:            Did you say hi?

  Maggi:            to Maggie/

  Maggi:            ?

  Maggi:            of course

  Vance:            Did she say she might return?

  Maggi:            no

  Maggi:            Ming is sleeping

  Maggi:            beautiful sunny day here!

  Vance:            Nice day here too.  Thinking about going hiking this weekend.  I was in touch with Gosia the other day.  She's going hiking too, or climbing.

  Maggi:            I know...and much happier

  Maggi:            saw Brigett too

  Vance:            Her mom's ok too.  So what's Bridgett up to?

  Maggi:            her Aunt died and we had a great conversation about death

  Vance:            wonder what kind of wake they do

  Maggi:            normal funeral

  Maggi:            she believes too that a person's life should be remembered and celebrated...not the end of it

  Maggi:            she was my age...a year younger

  Maggi:            so I'm on a kur to getting as fit aS POSSIBLE

  Maggi:            it fits into quantum mechanics too by the way

  Maggi:            which states that universal energy can be influenced by thought

  Vance:            Actually it came up at the office the other day and I didn't know anyti9ng aout it other than it was something you were into.

  Maggi:            how did it come up?

  Vance:            Someone was reading out an email.  Nothing earth shattering.  But when I notice a lacuna in my knowledge I try to fill it.

  Maggi:   me

  Vance:            I can't get back onto icq.  ?? >>

  Maggi:            I see that

  Maggi:            lucky this works

  Maggi:            maybe that's why there are no stdents or mc

  Maggi:            or they have such fine weather as here

  Maggi:            and food cooking

  Maggi:            ah ther you are now

  Vance:            I can get on thru this machine but not the other.

  Maggi:            where would you be without your machines?

  Vance:            by a doctor, because he's sick

  Maggi:            not for someone else

  Ying-Lan:         He said if I don't marry in next three years... then It is hard to marry anyone in Taiwan.
