An actual DRC member.

Zaphodi:

Loolee70:

Loolee70 does a dance
Zaphodi:
i can’t wait GZCMs
Erik:
Is everything alright with Douglas Sharper?
Nick White:
He’s having a meeting with the DRC right now.
Almas:
Cool
Erik:
Okay!
Yawni :
Any idea of what he’ll be doing?
Yawni :
Or is that what the meeting is about?
Loolee70:
the lag is killing me
Nick White:
Not exactly sure.
silverdragonesse:
that’s bad
Nick White:
I think he just wants to make sure everything is cool.
Erik:
okay. :)
Yawni :
Probably not a bad idea.
Erik:
well, I hope we’ll see him soon
L0RD 0WL waves hello
Akin:
any news with Negilahn?
Nick White:
What kind of news?
Nick White:
Are you lookng for…
Erik:
news about the creatures
Akin:
just any news on whats up with the animals
Yawni :
Are there any projects planned to raise animal pops?
Zib:
Yeah
ian1:
Where’s nick?
Yawni :
In the Museum.
Nick White:
Same old. News doesn’t come that fast on the animals.
Nick White:
I mean population is definitely down.
Nick White:
They are acting weird.
Yawni :
scared?
Zib:
Prolly all the ppl
Nick White:
Yeah.
Nick White:
Skittish.
Yawni :
Ooh!
Yawni :
I have a Q about the viewing windows!
ian1:
Nick, what’s the news on sharper?
Nick White:
They were acting that way before we opened it.
Akin:
have the DRC been outside of the pod?
Nick White:
No Sharper and I had a good talk yesterday. He’s meeting wth the DRC right now.
Yawni :
Are the windows one-way or anything special like that?
Nick White:
Yeah it was made to look at the animals. IT’s something outside the pod that is causing the problems.
Nick White:
Nothing inside.
Zib:
Hmm
Zib:
Bigger animals
Zib:
?
ian1:
An animal or is it the environment which is causing the problems?
Akin:
are there multiple pods?
Nick White:
Not sure… seems like an animal to me though.
ian1:
Maybe a new species was introduced into the environment by someone.
Nick White shrugs.
Erik:
hmm… I hope we don’t have to fear for extinction, that would make the whole Age redundant
Nick White:
Well it’s a fear… based on the numbers I’ve heard.
ian1:
Is there anything the DRC and do to correct the problem?
Nick White:
We’re trying to figure that out.
Yawni :
Yeah, what can we do?
Kam Uraki:
We could ask Sharper to take us on a hunting party in Negilahn to clear out the extra predators
Kam Uraki:
lol
Desert Eagle:
nick, will the DRC release some kind of documment detailing the workings of the pod and the names of the animals, etc?…
Zib:
damn, im stuck
ian1:
What about the other pod ages? Are they doing better?
Nick White:
That may not be that far from the truth.
Nick White:
We currently don’t have anyone to take interest in animals.
Akin:
has anyone tried bringing fireflies from kemo/gira to negilahn? have them fly out the crack?
Nick White:
To focus on that.
Nick White:
Not sure.
Kam Uraki:
I’m game. Get me a maintainer suit and a rifle.
Erik:
so, Sharper can help out here?
Eldar Storm:
anyone else getting stuck when they try linking to the book?
Yawni :
A big rifle.
Nick White:
Maybe. Al speculation at this point.
Kam Uraki:
Well… he is good at killing things
ian1:
Well, as he’s said, he still hasn’t exactly figured out the cause, just has a hunch
Kam Uraki:
*cough* Shroomie *cough*
Tandy:
Shorah Kam
Desert Eagle:
hey nick… am I right in assuming that Tetsonot and Payiferen are pod ages as well?
Kam Uraki waves hello
Nick White:
It’s been a long time since you’ve all seen Sharper. He may not be the same guy you remember.
Nick White:
Yeah.
Yawni :
In some respects, I hope not.
Kam Uraki:
Oh no doubt. But he still probably likes to hunt
Nick White:
He feels bad about the way things went down here last time.
Nick White:
I know that.
Yawni :
If an organized hunt is the solution, Sharper is no doubt the most qualified.
Kam Uraki:
Like I said, I’m sure he does. He just happens to be the one who knows the most about wildlife patterns
Erik:
well, I don’t know… is it really safe to go out of the pod…. We don’t want to lose Sharper again, do we?
Yawni :
Does he still visit Africa?
Kam Uraki:
Nick, on a completely unrelated note
Kam Uraki:
Are you a Pink Floyd fan?
Nick White:
I think he went back once between the last time he was down here and now.
Nick White:
Yeah, a bit. Not a huge fan.
Kam Uraki:
;)
Lexster:
Who isnt
Lexster:
i am listening to Dark side right now
Desert Eagle:
hey nick… when do you think sharper will meet us again?
Nick White:
No idea.
Nick White:
Really don’t know.
Kam Uraki:
Okay, now… is Kodama a cyborg?
Nick White laughs.
sil_oh_wet:
Good morning all
Nick White:
Kodama is cool.
Nick White:
Just a little stiff.
Akin:
Nick… any reaction from the DRC about the reported sightings of a portal appearing in the pod every now and then?
Kam Uraki:
lol, that’s like saying Cheney is a little devisive :P
sil_oh_wet:
What did I miss?
sil_oh_wet:
i didnt know anyone was here
Desert Eagle:
hey nick… since you`re a linguist and all, can you tell us if it is possible to translate the names of the ages to our language? like, does negilahn mean something in english?
Nick White:
Not officially. But you know the reaction… there is a lot of strange stuff that goes on down here.
Erik:
yeesha/bahro related I suppose….
Erik:
the bahro and yeesha seem be everywhere these days…
Nick White:
One sec, got a message here.
Kam Uraki:
So what do you guys know, if anything, about the outside of the pod. What condition is it in… I’ll hold
Almas:
:o
Yawni :
Perhaps Sharper has passed inspection.
Kam Uraki whistles “The Girl From Iponema”
sil_oh_wet:
Giggle
Akin:
sharper is now safe to link to…
Desert Eagle:
it`s Ipanema kam, not iponema! lol
sil_oh_wet:
Either way its funny
Kam Uraki:
Whatever. I took my best shot
Kam Uraki:
Wanna hear something sad? I heard Purple Haze playing in an elevator the other day
Kam Uraki:
Made me wanna cry.
Matthew Allen:
As long as you didn’t hear Purple Haze in the Kadish elevator, Kam
Kam Uraki:
No, that would have been cool
Kam Uraki:
I meant on the muzak system.
Almas leans right
sil_oh_wet:
Lol
Erik:
:P
sil_oh_wet:
i wish I had gotten a photo of that
Akin:
the kadish elevator could use some elevator music.
Almas leans right
Kam Uraki:
Isn’t that a sign of the apocalypse?
Matthew Allen:
i bet Nick is in an overtime payment dispute via KI right now for working on a Saturday
sil_oh_wet:
Do it again
Nick White:
Ok, sorry.
Yawni :
I should hope.
sil_oh_wet:
Oops
Nick White:
Looks like the meeting was late.
Nick White:
Thanks to Engberg.
Nick White:
They are just now starting.
Desert Eagle:
the meeting with sharper?
Yawni :
Way to go, Engberg!
sil_oh_wet:
How long is it expected to last?
Kam Uraki:
Anychance you could get us a live feed? ;)
Nick White:
Negative.
Yawni :
Is it happening in the Tokotah?
Nick White:
No.
Kam Uraki:
lol, was worth a shot
Matthew Allen:
nick’s turning into Kodama
Nick White:
Ha.
Almas kneels down…
Yawni :
A cyborg?
Nick White:
A cylon.
Nick White:
Toaster.
sil_oh_wet:
How long is the meeting expected to last?
Kam Uraki:
Ah, a Battlestar fan
Nick White:
Not sure. Just glad everyone is there.
Matthew Allen:
oh come on, if you were a cylon you’d be trying to mate with one of us.. now where’s Heaven again?
sil_oh_wet:
is there a mian ojective for this meeting that you can tell us a little bit about?
Nick White:
Yikes.
sil_oh_wet:
Main objective*
Kam Uraki:
Oh God, it’s turning into a Sci Fi con!
Akin:
anyone wanna try getting 18 people into negilahn… now that we’re all here.
Poutrew:
yeah…never link to the Cylon home world…you’ll never get away.
Nick White:
Sharper left on not great terms. He’s trying to make ammends I guess.
Devokan:
where is everyone?
Nick White:
Make sure everyone is happy.
Kam Uraki:
lol, do you speak Klingon too, Nick?
Nick White:
No.
Erik:
i hope he succeeds… starting with a clean slate
Gemini:
is that how many you need 18?
Nick White:
I only like Battlestar…barely.
Nick White:
That’s all.
Akin:
i dunno… its got the number 18 and everyone still trying to figure it out
Nick White:
Nothing more.
sil_oh_wet:
What do I do with this invite I got to a strange place?
Kam Uraki:
Sorry, couldn’t resist. Anyway, yes many of us remember the tussle between the DRC and SHarper
Almas:
18*34/567+4
Poutrew:
Isn’t it up to Cate to let Sharper back in?
Nick White:
The number 18? Well I won the lotery not too long ago and 18 was the …
Kam Uraki:
But people change, especially over the course of a few years. I know I have.
Nick White laughs.
Erik starts to laugh
Almas starts to laugh
Kam Uraki:
I keep trying Hurley’s numbers from lost… no luck yet
Matthew Allen:
i don’t think you want those numbers, Kam
Akin:
yeah…. lets all cram into negilahn and see what happens.
Nick White:
Let’s do it.
Nadnerb:
cool!
Finn:
I’m good at breaking things
Finn:
Would that be of any use?
Kam Uraki:
I can tell you what would happen. Lots of bumping into each other
Nadnerb:
whose neg?
Desert Eagle:
so you`re going to negilahn too, nick?
Akin:
come closer
sil_oh_wet:
We can go to mine
Nick White:
Yeah.
Kam Uraki:
Akins I guess
Nick White:
I’ll go.

[Nick goes with company to Negilahn, but they have some linking problems.]

Nick White:
Alright, well I gotta run…sorry guys. It seems like we have trouble in other parts of the cavern as well.
