Logged By: Maxsilver and Sorceress

Michael Engberg waves hello
Prometheus:
The bridge seems to be holding out.
Michael Engberg:
A few more inspections. How is everything going?
Prometheus:
Great! I haven’t been down for a few days, so I’m not sure what’s new to be found.
Michael Engberg:
This is still a bit unsafe.
Berric:
Where do you take your head’s hair,i don’t have this one in my relto
Maxsilver:
whats not safe?
Prometheus:
This opening in the wall?
Michael Engberg:
Yes. Should have more barriers here.
Ekk waves hello
Berric:
you have reason to
Maxsilver:
I think we’ll manage to not fall in
Prometheus:
A little water never heard anyone.
Michael Engberg:
Good.
Sorceress:
yeah, I know better than to take a dip in cavern water.
Prometheus:
*hurt
Michael Engberg:
How’s the library area? I need a final inspection over there.
Sorceress:
Same as it ever was.
Michael Engberg:
Cate’s moving fast. It’s mostly good.
Myst’Aken:
It still got those barriers though
Sorceress:
I thought you wanted things to slow down, that its been too rushed?
Michael Engberg:
I’d like to slow down the cavern exploration. I still want to be cautious.
Maxsilver:
why? whats to be afraid of?
Sorceress:
I see. Must be hard to take your time with all the cool things down here.
Michael Engberg:
But Cate wants to move very quickly.
Hu K’hanDhat:
the library area seems safe Mr. Engberg
Michael Engberg:
I don’t mean to frustrate everyone. I’m just naturally cautious. There are other things as well.
Amrak is amazed!
E’nitra:
Such as??
Marjan:
Other things?
Amrak:
So many people
Michael Engberg:
It’s not just things in the cavern that change quickly these days.
Donna:
business concerns?
E’nitra:
what else is changing then?
Hu K’hanDhat:
could you explain that last remark mr. Engberg
Michael Engberg:
Business, communications, meetings, web sites…
Marjan:
:-)
Prometheus:
Nice website by the way.
Whilyam:
websites… Be sure to mention to Cate that many explorers don’t like that the DRC forums are down.
Hu K’hanDhat:
i understand
Thumbs up from Marjan
Michael Engberg:
I don’t buy into all of the changes. But I’m stubborn I suppose.
Michael Engberg:
I don’t like that the forums are down either.
Myst’Aken:
PuLease ??
Whilyam:
No voice chat, please…
Hu K’hanDhat:
well, a bit of stubborness could just balance things out … in my experience
Whilyam cheers
Sorceress:
If I may request something, could the DRC maybe archive the old forums? A lot of good informational posts were there that we’d like to keep for posterity.
Whilyam:
Glad to hear that
Whilyam:
Yes, there was much progress made there.
Gadren:
Shorah!
Michael Engberg:
Just ashame to lose the forums - on top of everything else.
URU_Plum:
i hear u five by five
Whilyam:
Understand, but please stop. It’s generating lag… at least for me it is
Gadren:
where is everyone?
Sorceress:
We’re by the walkway to the library Gad.
Whilyam:
Thanks
Gadren:
thanks
Marjan:
Was it ms Alexanders idea to take them down?
Michael Engberg:
I’ll see what I can do. But Cate seems to think nobody cares that much.
Hu K’hanDhat:
any news on the light in the docks section mr. engberg?
E’nitra:
Well the let her know we do!!
Myst’Aken:
She didn’t really give us time to respond yesterday
Michael Engberg:
Yeah it was Cate’s idea, but she had other support.
Whilyam:
Aye. Tell her she’ll have riots soon if she doesn’t have some sort of forum up.
Michael Engberg:
But I didn’t agree.
Whilyam:
I liked seeing small reports of progress.
Sorceress:
Maybe if there was an active effort to moderate the DRC forums, there would be less trolling there. I left because I couldn’t stand the nasty atmosphere there.
Whilyam:
I also miss the Sights and Sounds section. That’s pretty much gone too.
Sorceress:
I know, add yet anohter job to the pile.
Berric:
the fact to be all here together is cause of lags
Michael Engberg:
I might not threaten her with riots, but I will express some of your opinion if you don’t mind.
Whilyam:
Thank you.
Ural:
Any video live from the cavern?
Michael Engberg:
You should also make it clear to her when she’s around down here.
Whilyam:
She WILL have problems, though, if this keeps up.
Whilyam:
I will. I just haven’t seen her much.
Hu K’hanDhat:
ok, we will do that …
Sorceress thanks you very much!
E’nitra:
oh we will!
Whilyam:
I’m busy myself.
Marjan:
But…. we have a lot to thank her for as well haven’t we?
Sorceress:
Just remember guys, a little politeness goes a long way fi you mention this to Cate.
Hu K’hanDhat:
agree with yoiu Marjan
Marjan:
Without her funding….
Michael Engberg:
I do agree with you all. I may be slow on the cavern and age release, but the forum removal seems unproductive.
Whilyam shrugs
Whilyam:
I’m glad she came. Doesn’t mean shredding a good forum is okay by me.
Michael Engberg:
No need to be rude. Cate gets things done. But she listens… generally.
Whilyam:
Michael: One thing that surprised me is that you said most of these decisions end up with you being the only detractor. I would think Dr. Kodama would oppose releasing unsafe areas. Has something changed?
Cosmo:
hi everyone
Whilyam:
Shorah, Cosmo
Marjan:
She knows how to get a train moving ….:-)
Michael Engberg:
I’ll be pushing from my direction. We’ll see.
Sorceress:
Hi Cosmo
Berric:
can we have other avatar’s head cause the one i have is not representing mine
Michael Engberg:
Dr. Kodama and I agree and disagree. But we seem to get along just fine.
Donna:
forgive me if already asked, but what is the library’s status?
Amrak:
I am sorry, but she funds, and that’s all she cares about in my
Michael Engberg:
Actually I was here to do a final library insprection.
Donna cheers
Whilyam claps his hands
Hu K’hanDhat:
mr. Engberg, any news on Sharper since we last met a few days ago?
Sorceress claps her hands
Rima cheers
Myst’Aken:
Need any assistance ?
E’nitra:
Lol
Donna:
opening soon then?
Amrak:
Sooner than friday?
Michael Engberg:
I don’t keep up with Sharper and the rumors.
Donna shivers with anitcipation
Sorceress yawns
Whilyam:
Michael, there’s been a pestering question about Watson. Do you mind if I ask you about it?
Hu K’hanDhat:
but, don’t let us stop you from you insdpection …
Michael Engberg:
Just trying to be safe on the library. I error on the cautious side. But there is a lot of pressure to open it soon.
Hu K’hanDhat:
We all are anxious to see the inside of the library
Amrak:
No pic?
Sorceress:
And maybe finally go down the stairs all the way!
Amrak:
ok then
Michael Engberg:
I haven’t heard from Dr. Watson at all.
Whilyam:
Back at one of the first Town Halls, the DRC said that news about Watson should “wait until the community is healed” or something to that effect. Yet now you say we’ve heard nothing. What did the DRC mean by that first comment?
Michael Engberg:
It’s a shame he’s not around. He was always a voice of reason.
Thumbs up from Amrak
Hu K’hanDhat:
and nobody in the DRC does have his most recent Mobile Phone number? Too bad
Marjan:
maybe he’s on Yeesha’s journey?
Gadren:
For two years?
Michael Engberg:
I think we were just referring to the fact that we didn’t really want to spend time worrying or contemplating what might have happened.
Gadren:
Even I’m not that bad a puzzle-solver
Marjan:
Lol
Prometheus:
How long was Phil gone?
Whilyam:
Ah. Thank you. Good to have at least partial resolution to that problem.
Gadren:
Phil disappeared around December 2003
Michael Engberg:
If it’s a journey, it’s a long journey. I hope he’s well.
Sorceress:
Wow, three years ago.
Whilyam:
I along with many others have taken a journey to free the Bahro by releasing a Tablet. Does the DRC have any info on what happened to that tablet or the Bahro? K’veer was where it was located.
Berric:
in the game he left message on the beginner 2004
Michael Engberg:
Well I’m going to do a walk-around the library area. Just my own inspection.
Gadren:
Don’t let us get in the way
Whilyam:
You’ll have a throng of about thirty following you, don’t worry
Donna:
hope it goes well Michael
Sorceress:
Don’t mind the entourage.
Michael Engberg:
Things have changed. We don’t know what the future holds.
Hu K’hanDhat:
succes on that Mr. Engberg
Sorceress:
Does anyone?
URU_Plum kneels down…
URU_Plum:
lead on
Lobo:
Donna!
Michael Engberg:
Thanks for chatting and letting me know your opinion. I will express you thought back to the DRC.
Donna:
Hi
Vidar:
Thank you for the Library inspection Mr. Engberg.
Myst’Aken:
Donna will show you the way
Sorceress:
Any time, Michael.
Hu K’hanDhat:
hope to see you around soon Mr. Engberg
Michael Engberg:
And I do agree with your thoughts on the forum.
Berric:
Thank for holding on
Michael Engberg waves hello
Hu K’hanDhat waves hello
Marjan waves hello
Donna leans left
Sorceress waves hello
Jack923:
hello
Vixen Online:
Michael is it true that the DRC are using Bahro as slave labor to restore the city?
Whilyam salutes
Brainz waves hello
E’nitra waves goodbye
Gadren:
Oh, by the way…we at the D’ni Network were wanting to hold some interviews with members of the DRC…could you remind the other council members to check their email?
Michael Engberg:
The bahro as slave labor? Ha. That’s pretty good.
Vixen Online:
True?
Gadren:
Vixen, Marie Sutherland replied to such accusations by saying “To think we would means you don’t understand the DRC. To think that we could means you don’t understand the Bahro.”
Prometheus:
I think that’s a “no”.
Michael Engberg:
I will remind them. Thanks for the support Gadren.
Gadren:
Awesome.
Ekk waves nice inspection!
Vixen Online:
Ok
Michael Engberg:
If you’ll excuse me.
Prometheus salutes
Amrak:
Thx for the pics Mr. Engberg!
Whilyam salutes
Michael Engberg:
I’ll get on with things.
Hu K’hanDhat steps aside for Mr. Engberg
Whilyam bows
dcos:
shorah all, where is everyone?
Sorceress:
Heading toward the library
Vixen Online:
lol
Whilyam:
Michael, you could just walk off a cliff and we’d follow. Good way to clear out the City
Amrak:
Lol…LEMMINGS
Ekk:

dcos:

Cosmo roars with laughter
dcos:
started by disney of all people
Whilyam:
Where did these rocks come from, Michael?
Amrak:
Oh man, that was good dcos
KL/RREN leans left
KL/RREN leans right
Prometheus:
Haven’t they always been there?
Myst’Aken:
I’m starting a sit in for the library
Vixen Online:
Sounds good
Donna:
me three
dcos:
a sit in? seriously?
Vixen Online:
On the black line
Sorceress:
Michael, do you know which King is on the mosaic on the library?
KL/RREN leans right
KL/RREN kneels down…
Michael Engberg:
Sorry I don’t know which king off hand.
Sorceress:
Oh, okay. My guess is Kedri, but I’m not sure.
Whilyam:
Any news on when the Museum will open, Michael?
Prometheus:
This ledge seems pretty dangerous to me, Mr. Engberg.
dcos:
hello mister.engberg
Ural:
Always was…
Gadren:
By the way, I’m wondering…the D’ni built things to last…why is everything so broken, Mr. Engberg?
Ural:
Earthquakes???
Whilyam:
and there he went–
dcos:
um… did he just walk over the cliff?
Whilyam:
NO! Michael! You had so much to live for!
KL/RREN is a bit puzzled…
dcos starts to laugh
dcos:
did he say if he was working or just stopping by?
Sorceress:
He might come back, he got the Nexus link for the courtyard.
Sorceress:
He said he was doing final inspection for the library.
dcos:
he still shows as being here
Whilyam:
He’s still here. He (OOC: hit a lag bubble)
Whilyam:
See?
Whilyam points
dcos:
(k thanks )
Whilyam:
He’s happily spinning around a blocker
dcos waves hello
Gadren:
Sorry, I tripped on a piece of rubble back there and fell behind…was my question answered?
dcos:
no he’s being very quiet
Whilyam:
en Restoration
Whilyam:
Zen that is
dcos starts to laugh
Michael Engberg:
Sorry. Hard to inspect and talk at the same time.
Whilyam:
He’ll start glowing and floating and humming and the blockers will vanish
Whilyam:
It’s something Kodama brought with him
E’nitra:
would sing too if I could..
dcos:
sorry if we’re distracting you, hows it looking?
dcos is checking something out
E’nitra:
but my voice might damage your hearing..
Hu K’hanDhat:
well, you could read us a poem?
Cosmo:
just try, we won’t hear you anyway
dcos looks around for a bit
Whilyam is checking something out
Michael Engberg:
Not too bad.
Sorceress is checking something out
E’nitra:
i’m not that poetic Hu..
Sorceress:
That’s good.
Vixen Online:
how is the inspection going Michael and please shout!
dcos:
Anything we can do to help?
Gadren:
I hope that the results of this inspection get posted on the DRC site…it would be nice if the new site was at least updated more often
Whilyam:
Good.
Lobo:
Excuse me Captain Ron, but you’re sitting on me.
Vixen Online:
lobo and captian are snuggling
Donna wonders if E’nitra will get trampled when the barriers vanish suddenly
Whilyam:
Nice sit in
dcos:
y’all still having a “sit in” ?
E’nitra:
I probably will Donna!
Hu K’hanDhat:
try something like … one day in may i’ll find a way to say … URU is the best thing that happened to us
Donna:
I’ll save you sweetie!!
E’nitra:
thankies Donaa! I apreciate it!
URU_Plum:
oh hes doing the ki thing
E’nitra:
Err Donna
Donna:
Lobo:
The library
Lobo:
Michael Enberg is inspecting it.
Lobo:
We’re hoping he opens it.
Whilyam:
To the invisible voice: Hi
Gadren:
Hey kal’el…did Delin get working for ya?
Donna:
reply hee hee, I don’t know girl….
Donna:
oops
Gadren:
That’s too bad
URU_Plum:
brb putting log on fire
Whilyam:
How’s it looking up here?
dcos:
i have the strongest urge to yell “good evening D’ni”
Lobo:
Just told you…
E’nitra:
Pff getting tired..
Vixen Online:
here goes the mute button
dcos:
we’re waiting to see if mr.engberg opens the library
Whilyam:
Mr. Engberg is inspecting, Kalel
Sorceress waves hello
Brainz:
donnas dancing for us
Gadren:
I think people are doing a “sit-in” to protest the loss of the DRC forums
Michael Engberg:
Seems unchanged. Just wish we understood at bit more of the reason why certain areas collapsed.
Lobo:
Hoping he opens it
dcos cheers
dcos:
was there much damage mr.engberg?
Whilyam:
Which areas collapsed?
Michael Engberg:
I’ll make a report.
Sorceress:
Was it like this when you first came to D’ni?
Michael Engberg:
Worse than this.
Sorceress:
I see. Maybe earthquakes?
Vixen Online:
bahro caused the collapses while protesting being used as slave labor!
Michael Engberg:
Just lots of debris. We’ve cleaned up a lot of the smaller debris.
Sorceress:
And didn’t A’gaeris plant a bomb or twon before the Fall?
Donna:
free the Bahro!!!
Gadren:
See, I’m just not seeing how earthquakes could do THIS much damage…a civilization that lives underground would have been geologically knowledgable…
Vixen Online:
poor bahro
Whilyam:
You said certain areas collapsed, Michael. Any specific areas that were damaged the most?
Gadren:
But then again, it’s not as bad when you compare it to some of the major surface disasters
Michael Engberg:
I’m actually surprised sometimes how little damage was done.
Vixen Online:
they are a proud race
Donna nods her head
Michael Engberg:
Even small stones falling from the cavern ceiling can do quite a bit of damage.
URU_Plum:
damage can be cleaned up i volunteer
Vixen Online:
Do you like Cate Michael?
Prometheus cheers
Gadren:
Kind of like droppiing a penny off a really tall building, Mr. Engberg?
Whilyam:
That’s been some concern, Michael. Is the roof stable?
Michael Engberg:
The Guild Hall area is pretty badly damaged.
Whilyam:
The cavern roof that is
Hu K’hanDhat:
yes, we noticed a lot of hammering sounds there for quite a time now
Lobo:
What is the likelihood you’ll be opening the library?
Kelm:
does that mean the Guild hall will not be open for a while?
Donna:
brb
KAL`EL:
r we going to have a cave in
Michael Engberg:
Right through your skull? I think that’s actually not quite true - but a car sized rock can mess up a building.
Vixen Online:
Do some of the d’ni have active roles in the DRC, micheal?
Whilyam:
Is there a significant risk of that happening?
Vixen Online:
sorry i mean michael
Michael Engberg:
I won’t be opening the library. But it’s likely not to long now. I’ll make a report.
dcos:
will we get to see a copy on the site?
thumbs down for Amrak
Vixen Online:
thats not nice michael
Michael Engberg:
No, there are no D’ni on the DRC.
Vixen Online:

Michael Engberg:
Sure.
KL/RREN is sad
dcos cringes
Captain_Ron:
Can we help
Prometheus:
Haha
Lobo:
Would that be days, weeks, or what, Mr. Enberg.
Vixen Online:

Amrak:
Ok girls…go change his mind with some dancing…
Michael Engberg:

Hu K’hanDhat:
So you are no that opposed to it anymore Mr.Engberg
Gadren:

Kelm:

dcos:

KAL`EL tries to be funny
Vixen Online:
micheal i don’t think you are being honest with us
Amrak:
I need to cut my hair if I want to wear a hard hat…
Donna:

KL/RREN is waiting…
Donna:
ahhh
Hu K’hanDhat:
well, perhaps if Mrs Alexander were here … just joking
Whilyam:
Will the Library Report be on the DRC site?
Michael Engberg:
Cate’s happy. Opening up things quickly. Too quickly.
Amrak:
I say we will all be linked out…
Donna:
no one’s been hurt though!
Sorceress:
Is that why the DRC hasn’t made her a member?
Vixen Online:
we haven’t lost anyone yet michael
Marjan:
nothing bad happened so far….
Whilyam taps his foot
Whilyam:
Michael will I have to write that question out a fourth time?
Michael Engberg:
Just an informal report. I’ll make recommendations to the council.
Sharaya:
How are the new ages coming along?
Vixen Online:
tell the council we are very upset
dcos:
will it appear on the site?
Vixen Online:

Captain_Ron:

Marjan is cery calm …..
URU_Plum:

Donna:

Sharaya:
Some are unhappy that Cate said there won’t be forums on the DRC website
Vixen Online:

Amrak:
Why does the DRC oppress us?
Captain_Ron:
i’m glad they were will to start up the project again
Sorceress:
It takes a lot to get me upset, so don’t worry about me at least.
Michael Engberg:
I would just as soon not rush things open, but I better go chat with the council.
Lobo:
What if we promise to link out if there is any trouble?
Michael Engberg:
Thanks for all the help.
Donna:

Vixen Online:
