    2/8/2017 2:05:26 PM [World] Adam: I'm waiting for the drama that causes

    2/8/2017 2:06:06 PM [World] Adam: Yeah, gives you a list of what they're wearing, turns every avatar into an advertisement
    2/8/2017 2:06:26 PM [World] Adam: Really like Newsea's new hair too
    2/8/2017 2:06:26 PM [World] ghaelen: I need to get the nuns their habits, then!
    2/8/2017 2:06:36 PM [World] AshaSekayi: As a creator, I like the idea. As a woman, I'm not sure. :p
    2/8/2017 2:06:36 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: Adam, Is there currently a way for a creator to delete an item in curator?
    2/8/2017 2:06:52 PM [World] Adam: Spiral: kiiiiiinnndaaaaaaaa.
    2/8/2017 2:06:56 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: lol lol
    2/8/2017 2:06:56 PM [World] Adam: But it's not a /good/ way.
    2/8/2017 2:07:00 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: nvm
    2/8/2017 2:07:08 PM [World] ghaelen: (I'm building a medieval monastery)
    2/8/2017 2:07:11 PM [World] Adam: Yeah I know, I need to hit up the curator team about that.
    2/8/2017 2:07:18 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: ok

    2/8/2017 2:09:28 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: heehee
    2/8/2017 2:09:33 PM [World] Adam: We could let the arrow keys still control movement I think
    2/8/2017 2:09:45 PM [World] ghaelen: That would make me love you Adam
    2/8/2017 2:09:53 PM [World] AshaSekayi: :D
    2/8/2017 2:10:16 PM [World] Adam: OK, it's on my envelope list.

    2/8/2017 2:11:23 PM [SYSTEM] System: Julesin3D has joined the region.
    2/8/2017 2:11:30 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: what is the latest news, Adam?
    2/8/2017 2:11:43 PM [World] Adam: Well; our office is back from CNY, everyone had a good break.
    2/8/2017 2:11:48 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: yay
    2/8/2017 2:11:53 PM [World] Adam: So the 5.5 update is going out to the live server as soon as the latest viewer is confirmed 'Mostly bug free'
    2/8/2017 2:11:55 PM [World] ghaelen: yay
    2/8/2017 2:12:07 PM [World] Adam: We might have some lingering bugs, but it looks to be falling into place now.
    2/8/2017 2:12:13 PM [World] Adam: So if anything is still wonky, let us know.
    2/8/2017 2:12:19 PM [World] Adam: We've scheduled another patch in a weeks time
    2/8/2017 2:12:29 PM [World] Adam: THat'll contain the new XMPP chat, new voice chat hopefully
    2/8/2017 2:12:35 PM [World] ghaelen: yay twice!
    2/8/2017 2:12:39 PM [World] Julesin3D: wicked!
    2/8/2017 2:12:40 PM [World] Adam: Possibly the new room editor as well, but that may happen on Feb 21st.
    2/8/2017 2:12:50 PM [World] Adam: Let me see what else we have coming ...
    2/8/2017 2:13:08 PM [World] AshaSekayi: The new room editor will let us place furniture...yes?
    2/8/2017 2:13:10 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: Oh, are the user's um private rooms offline? Mine is greyed out
    2/8/2017 2:13:11 PM [World] Adam: Yeah
    2/8/2017 2:13:23 PM [World] Adam: Spiral: uh, no.
    2/8/2017 2:13:24 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Sweet :)
    2/8/2017 2:13:27 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: hmmm
    2/8/2017 2:13:49 PM [World] Adam: Oh, there may be new facial sliders; body sliders are right around the corner too - we've had a artist start on getting all those morphs in place.
    2/8/2017 2:14:00 PM [World] Vanity Fair: great!
    2/8/2017 2:14:03 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Yay!
    2/8/2017 2:14:17 PM [World] ghaelen: I can see my creator regions with this avie, Spiral but I can't get there with her
    2/8/2017 2:14:18 PM [World] Adam: New tessellation improvements are in - we've had a very long period of time whacking tessellation bugs.
    2/8/2017 2:14:18 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Now, that makes me excited.
    2/8/2017 2:14:37 PM [World] Adam: Ghaelen: ah yes, they're there - but they can't be enabled until they go live.
    2/8/2017 2:14:46 PM [World] ghaelen: right
    2/8/2017 2:14:58 PM [World] Adam: Oh, new settings window.
    2/8/2017 2:15:00 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: yikes, ghaelen
    2/8/2017 2:15:03 PM [World] Adam: Don't know if that's in todays release or next weeks
    2/8/2017 2:15:03 PM [World] Adam: .
    2/8/2017 2:15:19 PM [World] Adam: I think it'll be next weeks release
    2/8/2017 2:15:39 PM [World] Adam: But that'll give you better performance control, and some long-asked toggles
    2/8/2017 2:15:41 PM [World] Adam: like click to walk, etc.
    2/8/2017 2:15:44 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Does next weeks release still go with Unity 5.5.1?
    2/8/2017 2:15:58 PM [World] Adam: Yes, all releases from today onwards are on 5.5.X
    2/8/2017 2:16:06 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Okie
    2/8/2017 2:17:20 PM [World] Adam: Oh, and for scripters, there's a bunch of new functions in the update too.
    2/8/2017 2:17:33 PM [World] Adam: Spiral: I added native access to the FFT buffers for audio analysis
    2/8/2017 2:17:38 PM [World] Adam: You've got a float[1024] to mess with
    2/8/2017 2:17:56 PM [World] Adam: I also added a lot more functions we were missing.
    2/8/2017 2:17:57 PM [World] Julesin3D: Adam did you guys get 1st person fix in there
    2/8/2017 2:18:21 PM [World] Adam: Julesin3D: Not 100% sure, I'll note it down but I don't know.
    2/8/2017 2:18:37 PM [World] Adam: I know the bug you're talking about
    2/8/2017 2:18:37 PM [World] Julesin3D: thanks
    2/8/2017 2:18:54 PM [World] Julesin3D: ya want to lock view sometimes in to first even
    2/8/2017 2:18:55 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Adam: So, I have a scripting question. (I swear this isn't about Quaternions again. :p ) Can we manipulate and lock the user's camera to a view using Lua?
    2/8/2017 2:19:01 PM [World] Adam: Yes you can
    2/8/2017 2:19:01 PM [World] Adam: .
    2/8/2017 2:19:10 PM [World] Adam: The functions you want to look at are on the CameraManager class
    2/8/2017 2:19:28 PM [World] Julesin3D: great but its blurry on full 1st scroll in
    2/8/2017 2:19:29 PM [World] Adam: there's two functions; "LockCamera" and "SupressCamera" - then you need to use the SetPositionAndOrientation function
    2/8/2017 2:19:30 PM [World] Julesin3D: so that one
    2/8/2017 2:19:32 PM [World] Julesin3D: gets ya
    2/8/2017 2:19:34 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Can it be tested inside Unity? Or, only live?
    2/8/2017 2:19:35 PM [World] Julesin3D: ah thanks
    2/8/2017 2:19:47 PM [World] Adam: Asha: uh should work in Unity - most scripting functions should behave in Unity.
    2/8/2017 2:19:53 PM [World] Adam: I think PostFX might be the exception.
    2/8/2017 2:19:57 PM [World] Adam: But everything else should work
    2/8/2017 2:20:06 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Ok great. I'll give it a spin.
    2/8/2017 2:20:09 PM [World] Adam: Maybe the Radio & Browser functions we added as well
    2/8/2017 2:21:09 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Ah alrgiht then.
    2/8/2017 2:21:17 PM [World] AshaSekayi: *alright too
    2/8/2017 2:21:53 PM [World] Adam: OK, so - I've asked last week but I think worth asking
    2/8/2017 2:22:00 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: a random question...Is there a way to transfer items purchased on the creator server to the live server?
    2/8/2017 2:22:12 PM [World] Adam: Spiral: no - the creator server uses funny money.
    2/8/2017 2:22:17 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: lol ok
    2/8/2017 2:22:20 PM [World] ghaelen: awwww
    2/8/2017 2:22:20 PM [World] AshaSekayi: lol
    2/8/2017 2:22:23 PM [World] Adam: Everyone gets a million gold there. ;)
    2/8/2017 2:22:26 PM [World] ghaelen: I am rich on the creator server
    2/8/2017 2:22:31 PM [World] Adam: Hehe
    2/8/2017 2:22:34 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: hahahahahaaa
    2/8/2017 2:22:40 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Nice try. :D
    2/8/2017 2:22:42 PM [World] ghaelen: hrm, down, woman, down
    2/8/2017 2:22:54 PM [World] Adam: So; question for the group again -
    2/8/2017 2:23:00 PM [World] Adam: Any features, bugs, etc that people want urgently addressed?
    2/8/2017 2:23:10 PM [World] Adam: Vehicles have come up a few times, so we're likely to add some new vehicle scripts
    2/8/2017 2:23:18 PM [World] Adam: We're also working on a universal way to tag bodies of water
    2/8/2017 2:23:25 PM [World] Adam: so swimming animations, boats, etc can all be handled appropriately
    2/8/2017 2:23:51 PM [World] ghaelen: I have an issue with my water in the upload, but I'll wait to see how the new patch handles it
    2/8/2017 2:24:03 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: i can't thhink of anything atm
    2/8/2017 2:24:03 PM [World] CindyBolero: are we going to keep single click goto? would rather have it double click to dot hop
    2/8/2017 2:24:26 PM [World] CindyBolero: Im always thrown across the region with clickies
    2/8/2017 2:24:27 PM [World] Adam: Cindy: you're getting a toggle in settings. I guess we could make it three options, right now we've added On/Off for the click-to-walk in the new settings window
    2/8/2017 2:24:54 PM [World] CindyBolero: cool that helps a lot!
    2/8/2017 2:26:35 PM [World] Adam: Yeah; other features/requests from anyone?
    2/8/2017 2:26:44 PM [World] Adam: We're also updating our websites, I think you all saw me doing a screenshot test the other day
    2/8/2017 2:27:03 PM [World] ghaelen: /me nods
    2/8/2017 2:27:03 PM [World] CindyBolero: Pretty soon my frozen canals will thaw. Then it will be time to switch from snowmobiles to jetskis. Is there a plan for water and watercraft standard. So all watercraft works on everyones water?
    2/8/2017 2:27:05 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: yeah, i liked the darker one
    2/8/2017 2:27:13 PM [World] ghaelen: me too
    2/8/2017 2:27:18 PM [World] ghaelen: it stands out more
    2/8/2017 2:27:20 PM [World] Adam: Cindy: that was my thoughts on getting water bodies tagged with a universal component.
    2/8/2017 2:27:26 PM [World] ghaelen: oh, for pity's sake
    2/8/2017 2:27:28 PM [World] Adam: The developer site is going dark, the consumer is bright.
    2/8/2017 2:27:37 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: lol ghaelen.......
    2/8/2017 2:27:48 PM [World] Adam: we're replacing sinewave.space with developer.sine.space
    2/8/2017 2:27:53 PM [World] Adam: so the domain is no longer quite so confusing
    2/8/2017 2:28:00 PM [World] Adam: curator will get folded into the developer.sine.space site
    2/8/2017 2:28:22 PM [World] ghaelen: nice
    2/8/2017 2:29:02 PM [World] Adam: Yeah new site is looking good - got a really nice template design done. ;)
    2/8/2017 2:29:47 PM [World] CindyBolero: sounds spiffy!
    2/8/2017 2:29:50 PM [World] AshaSekayi: The darker version looks pretty good.
    2/8/2017 2:29:58 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: I guess we're all happy campers then.... chucke
    2/8/2017 2:30:00 PM [World] Adam: Just taking a screenshot. hehe
    2/8/2017 2:30:11 PM [World] Adam: I am open to feature requests though - we haven't picked the focus for EP10 yet
    2/8/2017 2:30:19 PM [World] Adam: We're still stabilising EP9, but that will be decided very soon
    2/8/2017 2:30:37 PM [World] Adam: We're always aiming for one big feature, and then some smaller ones on the side
    2/8/2017 2:30:49 PM [World] Adam: so EP9 was scripting, EP8 was quests, EP7 the skeleton replacement
    2/8/2017 2:31:07 PM [World] ghaelen: Well.... I'm looking forward to the day my editor window in 'play ' looks the way it will in the client
    2/8/2017 2:31:16 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: :)
    2/8/2017 2:31:18 PM [World] ghaelen: with water it is vastly different
    2/8/2017 2:31:19 PM [World] Adam: http://imgur.com/a/aFClH
    2/8/2017 2:31:21 PM [World] AshaSekayi: You haven't picked the big one for EP10?
    2/8/2017 2:31:23 PM [World] Adam: That's the new site.
    2/8/2017 2:31:31 PM [World] Adam: Asha: we've got a few candidates. Vehicles is currently the lead
    2/8/2017 2:31:55 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: like it!
    2/8/2017 2:31:56 PM [World] Adam: Right now we're stabilsing the new room editor but as soon as that's done we'll begin on EP10
    2/8/2017 2:32:13 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: Yay for the room editor!!
    2/8/2017 2:32:14 PM [SYSTEM] System: JamesStallings has joined the region.
    2/8/2017 2:32:27 PM [World] ghaelen: That will be very good
    2/8/2017 2:32:28 PM [World] AshaSekayi: I'm pretty excited about the room editor as well.
    2/8/2017 2:32:29 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: Hiya James

    2/8/2017 2:32:45 PM [World] JamesStallings: Howdy! :D
    2/8/2017 2:32:51 PM [World] ghaelen: You look scriptory today
    2/8/2017 2:32:52 PM [World] Adam: Yeah, the room editor I'm excited about too
    2/8/2017 2:32:52 PM [World] CindyBolero: Hi James
    2/8/2017 2:32:58 PM [World] JamesStallings: o/
    2/8/2017 2:32:58 PM [World] Adam: I feel like it fits the last missing hole we've got
    2/8/2017 2:33:05 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: nods
    2/8/2017 2:33:05 PM [World] Vanity Fair: Hello James
    2/8/2017 2:33:08 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Yea, I'd agree
    2/8/2017 2:33:10 PM [World] JamesStallings: Hi there :D
    2/8/2017 2:33:11 PM [World] Adam: Then we've got some smaller holes to patch; especially around av customisati
    2/8/2017 2:33:11 PM [World] Adam: on
    2/8/2017 2:33:29 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Well, yea.... I need more AV sliders. :p
    2/8/2017 2:33:29 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: good idea with avies
    2/8/2017 2:33:36 PM [World] CindyBolero: Any progress on signup avatars?
    2/8/2017 2:33:40 PM [World] JamesStallings: Adam, I had a question for you concerning scripting
    2/8/2017 2:33:43 PM [World] Adam: The signup avs are being replaced
    2/8/2017 2:33:45 PM [World] Adam: James: fire away
    2/8/2017 2:34:04 PM [World] Vanity Fair: I'm sending out friend requests to everybody hope you don't mind
    2/8/2017 2:34:09 PM [World] JamesStallings: Concerning gold and silver, and transactions: will we have a way to move monies around with scripting?
    2/8/2017 2:34:11 PM [World] Adam: Go for it. :)
    2/8/2017 2:34:17 PM [World] ghaelen: hah!
    2/8/2017 2:34:26 PM [World] ghaelen: He wants to do it, too, Adam :)
    2/8/2017 2:34:34 PM [World] JamesStallings: lolwhut!
    2/8/2017 2:34:38 PM [SYSTEM] System: New Friend Request - AshaSekayi sent you a friend request. Check it in your "Friends" window.
    2/8/2017 2:34:39 PM [World] Adam: James: ah, good question - currently I've said no for security/scamming/etc purposes. But it does need to be in there, we just need to layer it in enough warning popups that confirm everything.
    2/8/2017 2:34:42 PM [World] ghaelen: lolol
    2/8/2017 2:34:53 PM [World] JamesStallings: can you say "C-A-M-P-I-N-G" :p
    2/8/2017 2:35:02 PM [World] AshaSekayi: oh god no
    2/8/2017 2:35:04 PM [World] CindyBolero: i was just going to award silver in quest system n stuff
    2/8/2017 2:35:14 PM [World] Adam: Yeah the quest system has ways of issuing rewards
    2/8/2017 2:35:14 PM [World] AshaSekayi: money trees :p
    2/8/2017 2:35:17 PM [World] JamesStallings: yeah actually that's what I was thinking too
    2/8/2017 2:35:25 PM [World] JamesStallings: but yes, camping has to happen too lol
    2/8/2017 2:35:26 PM [World] ghaelen: oy
    2/8/2017 2:35:27 PM [World] CindyBolero: I depend on fishing games
    2/8/2017 2:35:34 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: hahahahaaa
    2/8/2017 2:35:45 PM [World] ghaelen: lol
    2/8/2017 2:35:57 PM [World] ghaelen: only if I can dance-camp
    2/8/2017 2:36:02 PM [World] AshaSekayi: lol
    2/8/2017 2:36:03 PM [World] Adam: Hehe
    2/8/2017 2:36:04 PM [World] JamesStallings: :D
    2/8/2017 2:36:10 PM [World] Adam: theres functions in scripting for animating avatars
    2/8/2017 2:36:14 PM [World] Adam: also functions for doing IK on avatars
    2/8/2017 2:36:15 PM [World] ghaelen: and the music had better be good
    2/8/2017 2:36:19 PM [World] JamesStallings: we're set
    2/8/2017 2:36:23 PM [World] Adam: so you can make various poses procedurally
    2/8/2017 2:37:00 PM [World] AshaSekayi: I've been to busy playing with rotations to try out the IK bits. Procedural poses seem pretty interesting.
    2/8/2017 2:37:18 PM [World] Adam: Yeah you can do stuff like say 'Make hand move to 5,0,1'
    2/8/2017 2:37:25 PM [World] Adam: and the hand will move to that position
    2/8/2017 2:37:33 PM [World] JamesStallings: that will be fairly wicked
    2/8/2017 2:37:34 PM [World] ghaelen: next week I'll start trying to understand proceedural generation
    2/8/2017 2:37:45 PM [World] Adam: You can also set the intensity; so it'l only move if it's kinda close or achievable
    2/8/2017 2:37:45 PM [World] CindyBolero: Will the functions for animations make things easier than building character controllers? Or will still have to build character controllers for looped animations?
    2/8/2017 2:37:49 PM [World] Adam: or if it should pull the whole body to make that pose
    2/8/2017 2:38:01 PM [World] ghaelen: That is really neat
    2/8/2017 2:38:13 PM [World] AshaSekayi: /me squeals with excitement.
    2/8/2017 2:38:22 PM [World] ghaelen: lol Asha
    2/8/2017 2:38:26 PM [World] Adam: Cindy: you can potentially - but I guess I'd need to know a bit more about what you want to do to answer which is easier.
    2/8/2017 2:38:27 PM [World] AshaSekayi: :D
    2/8/2017 2:39:12 PM [World] Adam: Who else has been playing with scripting so far?
    2/8/2017 2:39:15 PM [World] CindyBolero: I'll have mostly trigger stuff. Deer in headlights, rabbit runs into hole
    2/8/2017 2:39:28 PM [World] Adam: Ah cool. :)
    2/8/2017 2:39:37 PM [World] AshaSekayi: /me raises hand.
    2/8/2017 2:39:39 PM [World] ghaelen: Sorry I'm a bit punchy - just got done hosting a memorial online and it was a little emotional
    2/8/2017 2:39:41 PM [World] Adam: Yeah that stuff should be simple enough - I'd probably use a combination of scripting & animator controllers to make that easier.
    2/8/2017 2:41:05 PM [World] CindyBolero: The training simulator will eventually have complex vehicles. Ladder trucks, bucket trucks. Not sure what side to build those controls on. But thats months away
    2/8/2017 2:41:15 PM [World] Adam: Yeah, that probably will need quite a bit of custom scripting.
    2/8/2017 2:41:15 PM [World] Vanity Fair: Well I have to get going, it's been great meeting you all! Good bye!
    2/8/2017 2:41:22 PM [World] Adam: Seeya Vanity. :)
    2/8/2017 2:41:24 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Bye Vanity
    2/8/2017 2:41:24 PM [SYSTEM] System: Vanity Fair has left the region.
    2/8/2017 2:41:27 PM [World] Julesin3D: tt
    2/8/2017 2:41:27 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: Bye, Vanity
    2/8/2017 2:41:27 PM [World] CindyBolero: bye Van
    2/8/2017 2:41:29 PM [World] JamesStallings: tc :D
    2/8/2017 2:41:30 PM [World] ghaelen: Bye Vanity
    2/8/2017 2:42:17 PM [World] Adam: Oh, unrelated topic since people keep asking.
    2/8/2017 2:42:25 PM [World] Adam: I dug out my Space Navigator
    2/8/2017 2:42:35 PM [World] ghaelen: So the curator uploads won't be affected by the new client/patches today/tomorrow/whateverdayitis?
    2/8/2017 2:42:39 PM [World] Adam: I'm gonna take a quick peek at what it takes to integrate
    2/8/2017 2:42:44 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: great
    2/8/2017 2:42:47 PM [World] Adam: Ghaelen: no - everything there should be safe & good.
    2/8/2017 2:42:50 PM [World] CindyBolero: So will there be a notice for when projects need to be 5.5.1?
    2/8/2017 2:42:52 PM [World] JamesStallings: oh I know some folks who will love that
    2/8/2017 2:42:55 PM [World] ghaelen: kk, thanks
    2/8/2017 2:43:34 PM [World] Adam: Cindy: I'd say "now" or "last week" - we've auto-upgraded and auto-upgrade content when it is uploaded
    2/8/2017 2:43:41 PM [World] Adam: but for best results, upgrade to 5.5.1/EP9
    2/8/2017 2:43:43 PM [World] ghaelen: /me feels spacially challanged atm
    2/8/2017 2:44:03 PM [World] CindyBolero: What is the public server running?
    2/8/2017 2:44:29 PM [World] Adam: 5.3, but it'll be running 5.5 likely today.
    2/8/2017 2:44:33 PM [World] Adam: Worst case, tomorrow.
    2/8/2017 2:44:44 PM [World] Adam: That's today our time. heh.
    2/8/2017 2:45:00 PM [World] JamesStallings: lol what time is it there? 3:00PM?
    2/8/2017 2:45:05 PM [World] CindyBolero: okies! I can geta going in 5.5.1 cool
    2/8/2017 2:45:05 PM [World] Adam: Yep
    2/8/2017 2:45:21 PM [World] SpiralSilverstar: okay, I am out too. Night all.
    2/8/2017 2:45:28 PM [World] JamesStallings: nighters :)
    2/8/2017 2:45:31 PM [World] ghaelen: Bye Spiral
    2/8/2017 2:45:32 PM [World] Adam: Night! :)
    2/8/2017 2:45:33 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Night Spiral
    2/8/2017 2:45:37 PM [World] Adam: Oh, the other thing -
    2/8/2017 2:45:47 PM [World] CindyBolero: perfect timing. Just finished up repairs from storm damage and can get back to Unity
    2/8/2017 2:45:50 PM [World] Adam: I'll publicaly announce it to hold people-who-shall-be-namless to it, but
    2/8/2017 2:46:16 PM [World] Adam: we will be running some monthly events from now on for creators
    2/8/2017 2:46:20 PM [SYSTEM] System: SpiralSilverstar has left the region.
    2/8/2017 2:46:26 PM [World] JamesStallings: oh?
    2/8/2017 2:46:27 PM [World] Adam: We'll give you guys a month to build something on a theme, same as we did for halloween
    2/8/2017 2:46:45 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Ooo.... fun
    2/8/2017 2:46:52 PM [World] Adam: Then we'll run a party the next month to showcase & award the winners.
    2/8/2017 2:46:56 PM [World] JamesStallings: hmmmcompetition :)
    2/8/2017 2:47:19 PM [World] ghaelen: a whole region or a bench?
    2/8/2017 2:47:24 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Can it be any genre....clothing, props, etc?
    2/8/2017 2:47:32 PM [World] Adam: Any item type, including regions.
    2/8/2017 2:47:32 PM [World] CindyBolero: simple small stuff I hope, otherwise I can't participate. Im five years behind on my projects as it is LOL
    2/8/2017 2:47:37 PM [World] ghaelen: lol
    2/8/2017 2:47:42 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Sweet
    2/8/2017 2:47:57 PM [World] JamesStallings: scale is all in your mind :)
    2/8/2017 2:48:04 PM [World] Julesin3D: tehe
    2/8/2017 2:48:26 PM [World] ghaelen: I usually have the artist and the engineer arguing about which deserves more time
    2/8/2017 2:48:30 PM [World] ghaelen: in my head
    2/8/2017 2:48:43 PM [World] AshaSekayi: What's the first theme??
    2/8/2017 2:49:00 PM [World] Adam: I don't know. I know the candidates, but I won't say them
    2/8/2017 2:49:00 PM [World] Adam: .
    2/8/2017 2:49:08 PM [World] Adam: It's someone elses job., ;)
    2/8/2017 2:49:11 PM [World] AshaSekayi: tease. :p
    2/8/2017 2:49:21 PM [World] Adam: I'd look at an event calendar
    2/8/2017 2:49:27 PM [World] Adam: and see what could be coming up for March.
    2/8/2017 2:49:37 PM [World] JamesStallings: interesting
    2/8/2017 2:49:38 PM [World] AshaSekayi: :)
    2/8/2017 2:49:50 PM [World] CindyBolero: is there an event calendar inworld yet?
    2/8/2017 2:49:55 PM [World] Adam: No, but it IS coming.
    2/8/2017 2:50:02 PM [World] Adam: I've got that on my personal TODO
    2/8/2017 2:50:10 PM [World] Adam: along with getting a blog on the login screen too
    2/8/2017 2:50:12 PM [World] CindyBolero: And eventually fillable?
    2/8/2017 2:50:22 PM [World] JamesStallings: we could almost script one (maybe not so much almost)
    2/8/2017 2:50:34 PM [World] ghaelen: lol James
    2/8/2017 2:50:34 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Is there a google calender btw?
    2/8/2017 2:50:40 PM [World] Adam: There is a google calendar actually
    2/8/2017 2:51:14 PM [World] Adam: http://bit.ly/2k0zJQa
    2/8/2017 2:51:16 PM [World] Adam: There you go
    2/8/2017 2:51:16 PM [World] JamesStallings: I wonder if it has an api of which we can take advantage via web request
    2/8/2017 2:51:17 PM [World] JamesStallings: '
    2/8/2017 2:51:18 PM [World] Adam: That's in GMT
    2/8/2017 2:51:24 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Thanks, Adam.
    2/8/2017 2:51:25 PM [World] Adam: It kind of does have a API - but it's not great.
    2/8/2017 2:51:28 PM [World] CindyBolero: can it be attached to the Space Google group for now?
    2/8/2017 2:51:45 PM [World] Adam: Huh I wonder if it can
    2/8/2017 2:51:45 PM [World] Adam: .
    2/8/2017 2:51:47 PM [World] Adam: I'll ask Merrie
    2/8/2017 2:52:26 PM [World] Adam: But yeah, we'll have that in a bit of inworld UI soon enough
    2/8/2017 2:52:42 PM [World] Adam: and the new XMPP upgrade gives me the ability to make grid-wide announcements finally. ;)
    2/8/2017 2:52:51 PM [World] JamesStallings: nice.
    2/8/2017 2:53:12 PM [World] Julesin3D: one question, do you guys have a record session tool,
    2/8/2017 2:53:14 PM [World] CindyBolero: Adams God Mic
    2/8/2017 2:53:14 PM [World] JamesStallings: I got a question about that actually
    2/8/2017 2:53:28 PM [World] Julesin3D: prob not or we 'd do this with voice
    2/8/2017 2:53:30 PM [World] ghaelen: so we can start holding events and streaming music in from our internet stations?
    2/8/2017 2:53:34 PM [World] JamesStallings: lets say I couldnt make it in on the desktop for some arbitrary reason
    2/8/2017 2:53:46 PM [World] JamesStallings: and I connected with an xmpp client on my phone
    2/8/2017 2:53:54 PM [World] Adam: Ghaelen: you should be able to do streaming music?
    2/8/2017 2:54:01 PM [World] ghaelen: ok, thanks
    2/8/2017 2:54:02 PM [World] Adam: James: that'll work, yes.
    2/8/2017 2:54:06 PM [World] JamesStallings: how would my appearance in the scene be facilitated, if at all?
    2/8/2017 2:54:13 PM [World] Adam: James: not at all
    2/8/2017 2:54:21 PM [World] Adam: XMPP clients dont have an avatar, for now.
    2/8/2017 2:54:25 PM [World] JamesStallings: so if I were here, and did not speak, no one would know?
    2/8/2017 2:54:36 PM [World] Adam: Other than '* James has joined the region', no.
    2/8/2017 2:54:42 PM [World] JamesStallings: interesting.
    2/8/2017 2:54:49 PM [World] ghaelen: hmmmm, I am interested in that, too
    2/8/2017 2:54:56 PM [World] ghaelen: for teaching
    2/8/2017 2:55:17 PM [World] JamesStallings: lol it'll also be generally effective for eavesdropping lol
    2/8/2017 2:55:39 PM [World] AshaSekayi: >.>
    2/8/2017 2:55:40 PM [World] ghaelen: yeah... but.... and... hmmmm...
    2/8/2017 2:56:05 PM [World] JamesStallings: dont ask me why, but I found that all to be fairly hilarious. I'm sitting here laughing like a buffoon
    2/8/2017 2:56:05 PM [World] Adam: Yeah we might want to do something about that.
    2/8/2017 2:56:18 PM [World] AshaSekayi: lol no kidding
    2/8/2017 2:56:26 PM [World] Adam: Initially we're really keen to use it to make sure we've got a friendly face availible in the welcome regions 24/7
    2/8/2017 2:56:31 PM [World] ghaelen: /me gestures randomly, unable to articulate how she feels about spying on college students
    2/8/2017 2:56:34 PM [World] Adam: since it'll be easier to greet people whilewe get other work done.
    2/8/2017 2:56:45 PM [World] JamesStallings: nods
    2/8/2017 2:56:49 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Hmmm
    2/8/2017 2:56:54 PM [World] ghaelen: yes it would!
    2/8/2017 2:57:11 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Will you guys have a sort of welcome program like SL had in the old, old days?
    2/8/2017 2:57:22 PM [World] Adam: You know, I hadn't thought about it, but it's a great idea
    2/8/2017 2:57:27 PM [World] Adam: and I don't know why I didn't think of it.
    2/8/2017 2:57:31 PM [World] JamesStallings: I like that it's client-agnostic, but unless you want to see hilarity ensue (here I go again) you will wanna do something with that lol
    2/8/2017 2:57:35 PM [World] ghaelen: lol
    2/8/2017 2:57:41 PM [World] CindyBolero: I've helped a few that were here when I landed here. I come here to check my mail often
    2/8/2017 2:57:52 PM [World] Adam: Yeah, some kind of greeters program would be a good thing to run.
    2/8/2017 2:58:12 PM [World] CindyBolero: I have over 50 friends already!
    2/8/2017 2:58:15 PM [World] Adam: I'm gonna flag that for someone to look into
    2/8/2017 2:58:15 PM [World] Adam: .
    2/8/2017 2:58:15 PM [World] JamesStallings: that is actually one of the first 'useful' scripts I want to write
    2/8/2017 2:58:18 PM [World] ghaelen: Space Greeters
    2/8/2017 2:58:19 PM [World] Adam: Cindy: wow! That's more than me.
    2/8/2017 2:58:25 PM [World] AshaSekayi: Yea, I think a greeter prgram would be great. I'd volunteer even.
    2/8/2017 2:58:31 PM [World] Adam: Excellent. :)
    2/8/2017 2:58:49 PM [World] JamesStallings: lol guess I was talking about a script

    2/8/2017 2:59:19 PM [World] Adam: Yeah, the phone clients I think might be helpful for merchants
    2/8/2017 2:59:37 PM [World] Adam: XMPP might be easier to handle offline inquiries with than email - although we're adding offline to email as well.
    2/8/2017 2:59:55 PM [World] Julesin3D: there is a set of controls on sound that i needed
    2/8/2017 2:59:57 PM [World] ghaelen: Even just answering IM's if offline would be a huge help
    2/8/2017 3:00:01 PM [World] Julesin3D: for clients using
    2/8/2017 3:00:06 PM [World] JamesStallings: yeah that is crucial to keeping people and avatars in touch
