Chat with students Ying-Lan from Taiwan, Gosia from Poland, and Felix from Brazil, and teachers Michael, Maggi and Vance

October 10, 1999

For the second week in a row, the Palace was down. Michael had emailed Nettie and found that the Palace server had been hacked into and the Palace crew were busy restoring drivers, hoping to have it back by the following week. Meanwhile, Vance conceived a plan to have everyone meet on ICQ and then either move to Vance's chat room at or in the chatroom available through "My Space" at Vance went to both places. Ying Lan was at egroups, but Maggi and Gosia had gone to Homestead, and since it was easier to get there (no password) that's where we all ended up.

The log was taken by cutting and pasting lines as they appeared in the dialog area. This didn't always work. Events in the browser (resizing a window, or someone adding a line during a highlight and copy operation) would cause sections of the chat to be lost. The following is a verbatim account of what was captured with filler information to try and bridge the gaps.

As we start, Gosia is talking about her desire to take up climbing, which she is trying to conceal from her parents, who object ...

Anonymous53 is now known as ying.

<Gosia> yes it is my secret

<Maggi> so your weather isw yukky too!!

<ying> Secret?

<Gosia> hi Ying

<ying> hi. Gosia

<Maggi> Gosia is climbing in secret

<ying> climbing

<Maggi> up things

<Maggi> like mountains

<Maggi> walls

<Maggi> not stairs

<ying> How to climbing in the secret?

<Maggi> her father doesn't know

<Maggi> he would be worried I think

<ying> What is it?

<Vance> So Gosia, you are climbing on a wall in a gymnasium?

<Maggi> tell her Gosia

<ying> You have not to tell me,,, because it is secret.

<Vance> It's only a secret from her father

<Maggi> you are far away Ying

<Maggi> :-)

<ying> Bascially, I don't know her farter.

<Vance> Gosia goes walking in mountains with her father

<Gosia> Can I disconnect with ICQ because I get some

messages and I don't want it and I don't want to be impolite not

talking with them

<Maggi> sure

<ying> The same problem with me... just close it.

<Vance> So Gosia, I don't understand why your father doesn't

want you to climb, since he likes mountains too.

<ying> and disregard them.

<Vance> Can't you just set ICQ to not available?

<Maggi> I told Felix to come here

<Vance> I sent him the url too

<ying> it is more dangerous than walking in the mountain.

<ying> I mean climbing...

<Maggi> depends on where you do it

<Vance> But it all depends. I climb small walls, and we rig from

the top, and I think it's pretty safe

<Vance> You keep at least two pieces of equipment attached to

the rope at all times

<ying> It would have been safe, if there had no earthquake.

<Gosia> okay I am

<Vance> Have there been any aftershocks this past week?

<Maggi> have you hear from Tina Ying?

<Maggi> heard

<ying> Another aftershock hit another area in Taiwan.. but it was

o.k. nobody hurt.

<ying> NO... no more email from her.

<Vance> It must be like living on a time bomb. California was a

little like that ...

<ying> I just want to ask you how she is.

<Maggi> I have not heard from her either.

<Gosia> I am happy I live in Poland we don't have earthqueak

<Maggi> we had one here but very small

<Gosia> we had only flood two years ago and that all

<ying> Last week, the sescur crew found some dead remains in

the mountain... they were killed by the earthquake when they were


<Maggi> that can be just as bad

<Vance> Is life returning to normal at all? Are people still

sleeping in cars?

<Maggi> I read an interesting article Ying...

<Gosia> it is horrible

<Vance> about what, Maggi?

<Maggi> about Tzu Chi

<ying> In stricken area, people still live in tents

<ying> But Goverment has been discussing how to rebuilt ...

<Maggi> she is like a buddist Mother Teresa

<ying> Tzu chi... she is very great...

<Felix> Icq is getting bumped lately Ying.

<Vance> I've had that problem too.

<ying> You know.. I hope that I will be the member of Tzu Chi in

the future.

<Felix> What is Tzu Chi?

<Maggi> I have less problems using an older version...:-)

<ying> I am too weak now... I can not help another one except that

I donated money to them.

<Maggi> I would be Ying if I lived in Taiwan

<ying> Tzu Chi is a famous Charity party in Taiwan.

<Felix> oh

<Vance> That's really nice of you. Where can you donate money

so it does some good?

<Maggi> Giving and helping othrs can give you strength Ying.

<Felix> I think that is rewarding to get into a Charity Institution.

<Maggi> this one is defintely worth it.

<ying> You know that I read a message in Newspaper...

<Felix> Why Michael isnt coming to the Palace anymore?

<Maggi> She says to take all living creatures into consideration.

<Maggi> Michael is really busy.

<Felix> As usual.

<Vance> doing what?

<ying> The victims only received five thousand new Taiwan

dollars from Tzu Chi after the earthquake.

<Maggi> the Palace is down anyway...

<Felix> What's happing with the Palace?

<Felix> happening

<Vance> So they're replacing some drivers

<ying> But Tzu Chi help those victims in a short time.

<Vance> They'll have it back up this week

<Maggi> helped with warm food...

<Felix> The goverment is always worried about the burocracy and

the victims need instant help.

<Maggi> their volunteers are only allowed to give directly to those

who need it.

<ying> Yes... They do a lot of thing... they supply food, water,

anything you want.

<ying> they always listen to what the victiim said

<Maggi> good way to build good karma

<Felix> trying to send the files again Maggi

<ying> They give their hands to anyone who need.

<ying> One of my classmates asked me which charity part is

good to be donated.

<ying> I only recommanded Tzu chi.

<Maggi> is there anyway you can just send the very last one?

<Maggi> reccomend

<ying> I also have a good friend who is a member of Tzu Chi.

<Felix> Maggi, I don't know what files you have..

<Maggi> oops...reccomend

<ying> She went to the sticken area directly after the earthquake.

<Maggi> eeee again...reccomend

<ying> recomend.

<Felix> Maggi after you click on Save it will show another window..

Then you click on RESUME ALL.. So that it will only transfer the

files you don't have.

<ying> It is hard for me.

<Vance> that sounds like Mr Wrong

<ying> I only met Mr. Wrong in my life.

<maggi> that is why I asked is there such a thing as Mr Right?

<Vance> How many Mr Wrong's have you been serious about?

<Vance> Doesn't your father like climbing, Gosia?

<ying> Most of good men have found their soul mates.



<ying> Gosai.. what do you want to say?

<maggi> Hey...I am lots older Ying...


<ying> It is different.. you are American not be Taiwanese.


<Vance> But you are planning to move to Canada aren't you?

<ying> It is a dream..

<Vance> I emailed everyone yesterday

<Gosia> only my dream

<maggi> You want to go to Canada Ying?

<ying> I got it.

<maggi> oh Gosia does...

<ying> I don't know how to answer this question.

<Vance> Ying has been to Vancouver already ..

<Vance> and she wants to go back, right?

<ying> It is good to live in Canada.. but I don't think I will get good

job there.

<ying> No money no hope...

<maggi> Lots of people go to Vancouver and never leave...

<ying> Yes, they do.

<maggi> money is not everything

<Vance> Vancouver is a nice city. I'm planning to go there in


<ying> Money is not everything, but if I have no money, I can not

live in the world.

<Vance> In fact I'll be giving a presentation about our class at a

conference there

<ying> Next march?

<Gosia> don't look at me because I was angry thar it is so slow

and I pressed button many times I think to many

Anonymous40 has joined the chat room.

<Vance> Yes, it's an annual tesol conference


<ying> I will take the professional test in next march.


Anonymous40 is now known as Michael C.

<Michael C> Hello all.

<ying> I plan to go the Vancouber in next year.


<ying> Hi. Michale.

<Michael C> Nice to see you Ying!

<ying> I plan to go Vancouver in next year.


<Vance> That's good. I've been there twice already and I really

like the city

<Vance> Maybe I'll go again and maybe you'll be there

<ying> To camp in Rocky mountains... it will be a secret.

<ying> I don't want to let my parents to know it.

<Vance> Ying, you're joking now ...

<Vance> or are you??

<ying> I do'nt want to let my parents know it.

<maggi> you have to live your life Ying

<Michael C> I don't think she is....

<Vance> So you can't tell your parents you're going camping???

<ying> It is true... I will attend the adventure travel group in next

year to camp in Rocky mountains.

<Vance> Gosia can't tell her father she's going climbing ...

<Vance> That's really neat. The Rockies are great!




Here Vance goes on to say that the only danger in the Rockies is the bears, and that when camping there you have to be sure to put your food in bear-proof containers. Vance used to camp with friends and family in California despite the presence of bears and always enjoyed it.


<Gosia> but there are important nowadays

<Michael C> Australia has no bears....except koalas!

<maggi> and they are cute!

<Michael C> Very!

<maggi> ans cuddly

<ying> Koalas are cute, aren't they?

<maggi> and

<Michael C> Sometimes they pee on people though!

<ying> pee?

<Michael C> Piss (impolite) ; urinate

<Gosia> Hallo Michael

<ying> got it.

<ying> But I have a problem with my travel plan...

<Michael C> Hi Gosia. I am just looking at your website.

<Vance> I guess there you have to sleep in bear proof tents

<Vance> or wear bear-proof raincoats

<ying> bear-proof?

<maggi> or wear waterproof clthing

<maggi> clothing

<Vance> water proof means water can't leak through

<maggi> I saw a greaqt ad for Gore Tex...from Oz

<ying> I can not go to anywhere before I have arranged my job.

<Vance> bear proof means bears can't leak through

<Vance> lol

Gosia has left the chat room.

<Michael C> Laughing at your own jokes vance?

<Michael C> lol

<Vance> I can't help it

<Vance> it was soooo funny

<Michael C> It's OK...

<Vance> roflol

<maggi> has to get his laughes where he can Mc

<Vance> still laughing ....

<Vance> can't stop ...

<Vance> there, I just got a breath ...

<Michael C> How do you make a cat drink?

<maggi> tickled his funny bone

<maggi> tell us

<Michael C> Put it in a blender!

<maggi> lol

<maggi> good one

<Vance> oooohh well, that stopped the laughter anyway

<Michael C> I thought it was funny.

<Vance> it was, just kidding

<Michael C> I'm reading a book about language and humour.

<Michael C> It's got lots of jokes and explanations of why they are


<maggi> I have lots of funnies...

<maggi> tell them every day in class

<Vance> Is it true that all humor is a violation of one of Grice's






Here, Michael asks to be reminded of what Grice's maxim's are. Vance can think of only three: be honest, be concise, and be informative (I think maybe the 4th is to talk on topic). Michael says that in his book, humor occurs where people are not cooperative, and Vance says, yes, that's the same thing as Grice's maxims, which define how people cooperate with each other in speech, and that humor occurs when these maxims are violated absurdly. In this part of the conversation, the teachers are beginning to notice that their students are not participating ...


<Michael C> Of course you are Maggie.

<maggi> what I tell

<Michael C> lol

<maggi> ha ha

<Michael C> What happened to Gosia?

<maggi> let' get back to our students gentlemen

relaxed again?




Ying Lan says that she is ok, that things are getting back to normal. Vance says that it would be nice if Ying Lan could write something about what she has seen or experienced during the past few weeks, what she sees around her.


<ying> I probably do not write it .

<Michael C> Too hard or painful?

<ying> No...I have no time to write..

<Michael C> I see.

<ying> To be honest, I just packed all of English books.

<Michael C> Why?

<ying> I have to prepare my professional test.

<Vance> packed them away?

<ying> I have to read a lot of materalys.

<ying> No... just packed them in another box.

<ying> To avoid myself to read them.

<Vance> good thinking!

<Michael C> So why did you do that?

<ying> You know it is hard to pass the professional test.

<Vance> to prevent yourself from reading them

<Vance> or to avoid reading them

<Michael C> But doesn't reading those books help you?

<ying> My officemate warn me ..

<Vance> about ?

<ying> To read hard ...

<Vance> warned you against reading too intently?

<ying> I have to read books in Chinese.

<ying> The English was over.

<ying> The English test was over this year.

<Michael C> Now I understand. A Chinese test!

<ying> It is hard to pass it.

<ying> I will take the professional test in next March.

<Vance> oh, so you have to study about your profession, in


<ying> Yes, I do.

<Vance> YL, if you want to take a break, to relax ...

<Vance> if you want to write about your experiences

<Vance> you have an audience in webheads

<ying> I want to take a break to watch HBO movies.

<ying> Tahnks, Vance.

<Vance> but we don't want to disturb your studies

<Michael C> Lucky I'm not easily offended...
