Marie Sutherland:
Thanks. It’s been keeping us even busier than usual.
CAGrayWolf:

Eleri:
ack, oops, sorry
Vortmax:
Good!
Vortmax:
So, what have you been working on, now that you have funding?
Michael Engberg:
Safety
Marie Sutherland:
Our new funders have a lot of inertia. It takes a lot longer to get anything done. There are meetings to arrange meetings to arrange meetings
Eleri:
ahh, the machine
Vortmax chuckles
CAGrayWolf starts to laugh
Vortmax:
Sort of like votes to arrange votes to arrange votes…
CAGrayWolf:
ACK!!!
Marie Sutherland:
yes, very similar
Eleri:
bite your tongue, Vort!
Marie Sutherland:
But once things get moving, it will be nice
Vortmax:
Are you actually getting to do any restoration work, or is it all still planning at this point?
Michael Engberg:
Yes it will..
Michael Engberg:
some small work
Eleri:
coolcool
Eleri:

Wow, hello Dr. Kodama! How unexpected!
CAGrayWolf:
Will Vitor be attending?
Vortmax:
Heya Tweek
CAGrayWolf:
Shorah Tweekster
Marie Sutherland:
I do not think Victor will be here today.
Tweek:
my appologise, was busy fixing this mess with DJC
Eleri:
napalm, Tweek.
Vortmax:
Yeah, I’m sorry to see that Tweek.
Vortmax laughs
Vortmax:
I’m with Eleri on that one.
Eleri:
So, we had a thought…
Tweek:
well I managed to get hold of an old sql dump to use on a roll back, we’re gonna loose about 3 weeks of stuff.
Vortmax grumbles about lost data thanks to stupid script kiddies
CAGrayWolf:
Goona be costly to us because of all the Liaison stuff there.
Vortmax:
Eleri, what was your thought you had?
Eleri:
most of the logs are already on the DRCL site, right?
Tweek:
yes I know, I am currently archoving topics to move over hopefully we wont loose much.
Vortmax:
Yes, Eleri.
CAGrayWolf:
OK, cool. Hope you succeed
Eleri:
asking some fun questions of the DRC memebrs.
Michael Engberg:
Afternoon Kodama
Vortmax:
Oh yeah!
Tweek:
in the mean time I can set up a temp forum for us to use on my test forums.
Eleri:
more off the wall, non-restoration related things
Eleri:
and posting them as sidebars of the DRCL site
Marie Sutherland:
That would be nice, Eleri.
Eleri:
I think it would help to demystify (ahem) you guys a little
CAGrayWolf:
I have a question to ask.
CAGrayWolf:
I have received several requests from out Spanish speaking community asking if the KI and Nexus can or ay least will be translated for Spanish.
Marie Sutherland:
That might be a good question for Victor tomorrow.
CAGrayWolf:
I did pronise I would bring it up in the TH meeting as well.
Vortmax:
Speaking of TH meetings, do you know of a good time to reschedule the one we missed?
Eleri:
or maybe do them both tomorrow?
Vortmax:
Yeah, what Eleri said
Marie Sutherland:
No, I’d rather it be rescheduled for a separate date.
Eleri:
*nod* might be overwhelming to do both
CAGrayWolf:
Agreed
Eleri:
when would be good for you guys?
Dr. Kodama:
Is there any business we need to discuss here?
Eleri:
hmm, other than checking in, rescheduling that meeting… is there anything new you guys need us to be doing?
Eleri:
now that someone opened the pursestrings?
Dr. Kodama:
Keep your fingers crossed.
CAGrayWolf:
How do you all feel we are doing with the TH meetings and keeping the Explorers informed?
Marie Sutherland:
let’s tentatively set it for 6/20
Dr. Kodama:
And keep hope alive
Michael Engberg:
Great
Vortmax:
And, can we get a bit more detail on what you’ve been doing on the Restoration, other than meetings?
Tweek:
any new KI images of places being planned on being released to spread interest to new explorers?
Dr. Kodama:
Not that I’m aware of - not yet.
Vortmax:
Heh, now we’re all flooding with questions…
Dr. Kodama:
New Ages are still in early stages - fairly dangerous
Michael Engberg:
We need to start small.. because we are small.
CAGrayWolf:
Cool … still would be nice to have a small glimpse though. Help keep interest, you know.
Eleri:
voracious explorers
Eleri:
rarr
Vortmax:
Have you hired any new ResEngs to help out?
Michael Engberg:
A glimpse of something new??
Dr. Kodama:
No, as Engberg just said, we are small…still…
CAGrayWolf:
or even current … like a small teaser.
Eleri:
some people have asked about volunteer resengs
Vortmax:
You wouldn’t believe the excitement that one shot of Eder Delin caused. Well, perhaps you would.
Dr. Kodama:
WeWhen we have something worth showing, I’m sure we will.
CAGrayWolf:
Agreed, they are still talking about that one shot.
Marie Sutherland:
Yes, we understand.
Michael Engberg:
I agree with Kodama.. it would be silly to show the same ole thing over again.
Dr. Kodama:
In the end, the sneak peeks are not going to appease anyone for the long haul. We are trying to get Ages ready.
CAGrayWolf:
Understood
Eleri:
Just knowing you guys are up to something is worth knowing
Michael Engberg:
Reminds me I need to get a ResEng on the DRCsite
Dr. Kodama:
We are up to something. : )
Dr. Kodama:
You can know that.
CAGrayWolf:
And I would personally rather have you all working on the new areas and Ages.
Eleri:
*chuckle*
CAGrayWolf:
oooooooooooo … a teaser, we get.
Vortmax:
Is there any chance we can meet with you on a more regular basis, such as once a month?
Dr. Kodama:
I’m sure there is a chance.
Dr. Kodama:
What percentage are you looking for?
Vortmax:
Heh, let me rephrase that: Is there a good chance?? Greater than, say, 80%?
Eleri starts to laugh
Marie Sutherland:
I’d rather meet as necessary, rather than on a set schedule.
CAGrayWolf:
Well, basically … we are already meeting once a month.
Dr. Kodama:
Right, as necessary. I agree with Marie.
Marie Sutherland:
True, we have.
Eleri:
as far as the THs.. does the lecture-followed by questions format work for you?
Marie Sutherland:
As far as I know, yes. That has worked well for everyone on the DRC and at Cyan.
CAGrayWolf:
Very cool. Glad we were able to get this together as we have.
Marie Sutherland:
Vortmax:
Okay, one thing I promised I’d ask for an explorer: Are people who helped Sharper go around the DRC, like Nick White, still working for you? If so, why?
Dr. Kodama:
Nick helps where he can.
Dr. Kodama:
Is there any reason he shouldn’t?
Michael Engberg:
Why not?? Exactly, we need all the help we can get.
Vortmax:
I think it was that explorer’s opinion that he’d kind of “betrayed” you or something. I just promised to ask, and I got an anser
Vortmax:
*answer
CAGrayWolf:
Personally, I thought Nick was more mislead by Sharper than did he actually knowingly wen behind the backs of the DRC.
Dr. Kodama:
Alright, is that all then?
Vortmax:
I’m of the opinion that it doesn’t matter much now. Things have changed so much since then.
Vortmax:
I believe so.
Marie Sutherland:
Yes. Many things have changed.
Eleri:
I’m all good
Vortmax:
Anything else you’d like to tell us?
Dr. Kodama:
Good job everyone. We’ll talk to you soon. I need to be heading out.
CAGrayWolf:
Oh, there are several lights that have been burned out for almost 3 years here in the hood that really should be replaced.
Vortmax:
Oh, and please thank Dr. Laxman for working on the Lattice for us! Things seem to be much improved.
Eleri:
LOL
Marie Sutherland laughs
Vortmax laughs
Dr. Kodama:
it takes a lot of DRC members to change a lightbulb
Eleri:
one last thing lo lead off the fun questions… Favorite pizza toppings?
CAGrayWolf starts to laugh
Marie Sutherland:
Excellent. I will pass that along to Victor
CAGrayWolf:
I bet
Tweek:
ham and pineapple FTW
Michael Engberg:

Tweek:

Tweek:

Vortmax:

CAGrayWolf:

Marie Sutherland:

Vortmax:
