Victor Laxman:
Hello
Cycreim:
What brings you to Delin, man?
Arthur Kalnins:
Whoops.. Sorry
Victor Laxman:
Just checking some readings.
Victor Laxman:
Hello Arthur
Cycreim:
What kind of readings?
Arthur Kalnins bows
Arthur Kalnins:
Hello, Mr. Laxman
Cycreim:
Anything we can help out with?
Victor Laxman:
Related to air pressure and such.
Victor Laxman:
Interesting readings.
Cycreim:
Yeah?
Cycreim:
Weren’t there… weather issues or something?
Arthur Kalnins:
Do you think it has anything to do with the reports of snow?
Victor Laxman:
Delin is interesting. Conditions can change here quickly.
Cycreim:
Wait, conditions? Is this something we should be worried about?
Victor Laxman:
We had to delay because of weather issues that we didn’t understand.
Victor Laxman:
Nothing serious, but we’re seeing similar readings again.
Victor Laxman:
Pressure is falling.
Arthur Kalnins:
If you don’t mind, sir, may I ask a completely un-related question?
Cycreim:
Fast?
Cycreim:
Hey Xanos!
Xanos:
Shorah everyone
Arthur Kalnins:
Shorah, Xanos
Victor Laxman:
We saw this before and the weather changed unexpectedly - within days.
Victor Laxman:
Hello Xanos
Xanos:
Hello Mr. Laxman
Victor Laxman:
So I’m curious if there is a pattern, or it’s more complex - chaotic.
Cycreim:
Hmm, that’s something we can watch out for…
Arthur Kalnins:
Indeed.
Victor Laxman:
Thought I would monitor a bit more closely this time.
Arthur Kalnins:
Shorah, Robert.
Cycreim:
Cool. I should tell the other Great Tree members about this…
Arthur Kalnins:
Do you have any theories about what causes this?
Victor Laxman:
Well, just so you’re all aware.
Kestr’l:
shorah
Cycreim:
And, uh, sorry to pepper you with questions, but is this related to why Tsogahl was delayed?
Victor Laxman:
It certainly is weather related, but I don’t know the big picture in this age.
Kestr’l:
It’s an honor to finally meet you, Dr. Laxman
Victor Laxman:
Thank you Kestr’l.
Victor Laxman:
Nice to meet you as well.
Victor Laxman:
From what I can tell, if the pressure continues to fall we should see changes within a few days.
Victor Laxman:
But I’m not a weatherman.
Arthur Kalnins:
Hmm.. Any danger to the Explorers?
Cycreim:
Do you want us to let you know if anything happens?
Victor Laxman:
Only if they’re wearing shorts.
Victor Laxman laughs
Arthur Kalnins starts to laugh
Robert F. Caine:
Dr Laxman, this is a bit off topic but do you have an ETA for GZ calibration?
Arthur Kalnins:
Anything like what the northeast is seeing?
Cycreim:
How long does it take until the pressure rises again?
Cycreim:
Or, well, how long did it take last time?
Victor Laxman:
Anyway, there aren’t many Delin Ages so you may have quite a few visitors.
Cycreim:
Ooh, lots of victi-I mean guests. :)
Austruck:
I can hear you guys. ;)
Kestr’l:
sorry to walk in on the middle of things - what is the pressure you are speaking of?
Arthur Kalnins:
Air pressure
Austruck:
My blood pressure
Austruck:
j/k
Kestr’l chuckles
Cycreim:
Yeah it looks like Delin’s gonna get a cold spell.
Kestr’l:
I noticed that anohay’s water has been poisoned… can you tell us anything about that?
Xanos:
I suppose the sandals would not be recommended footwear either.
Austruck:
Why not? My kids try that in Pittsburgh all winter long. ;)
Kestr’l:
(noticed from the DRC site)
Victor Laxman:
It was days last time, but I have no idea if that means anything.
Xanos:
Liability, maybe? :)
Kestr’l:
what’s the D’ni equivalent of a Groundhog? Maybe wek can make it last 6 weeks longer… heheh
Cycreim:
Hmm.
Victor Laxman:
One event does not provide information for a pattern.
Cycreim:
So uh, what’s the deal with these cloths here, anyway? That’s what most people have been coming to see.
Victor Laxman:
So if it changes again we’ll watch it. May be able to see a pattern develop…
Austruck:
Cycreim, I dn’t think they’re here to open the door. :(
Victor Laxman:
If there is one.
Austruck:
Finally found a Delin, and I stumble into a board meeting. Just my luck. ;)
Cycreim:
Hey Marchetto!
Arthur Kalnins:
I see Nick is on.
Victor Laxman:
Nick and I were in yesterday as well.
Arthur Kalnins:
Victor, there are reports that someone’s asking about Nick’s salary. Wanting to talk in private
Arthur Kalnins:
Any information on that?
Victor Laxman:
The cloths are not DRC related.
Arthur Kalnins:
I gathered that.
Kestr’l:
Dr. Laxman, eplorers like myself have so many questions to ask you… would it be possiblefor you to give a guided lecture on a particular age someday?
Xanos:
Dr. Laxman, is the DRC aware how the cloths got here?
Cycreim:
Yeah, well, obviously… but… were they around before you guys started investigating this Age, or did they suddenly appear, or what? I’m just curious about your take on that…
Cycreim:
Your personal take, I mean, not the DRC’s :)
Victor Laxman:
I’d enjoy that at some point. Cate would prefer us to get the kinks out before we take such a break.
Thend:
Hello all
Victor Laxman:
Excuse me a moment.
Cycreim:
No problem man
Victor Laxman:
Sorry, checking KI-mail.
Kestr’l:
Dr Laxman, You mentioned that there may be snow in Delin, is that correct?
Arthur Kalnins:
So, Victor. Do you know anything about the KI message an explorer got about someone wanting to know Nick’s salary?
Cycreim clears his throat.
Victor Laxman:
I’m not predicting the weather neccesarily. Just watching the pressure change.
Victor Laxman:
But there could be changes.
Victor Laxman:
I’ve got to leave. I’m afraid I’m on call. I’ll try and get back later. Cheers!
Kestr’l:
fascinating… could the DRC bring some meteorological equipment into Delin to record the changes?
Arthur Kalnins:
Shorah, Victor.
Xanos:
Thanks for dropping by Dr. Laxman.
Victor Laxman waves goodbye.
