Are the barricades coming down soon?
Tzalumen:

Brenda Rivera:
Yes, I want to learn more about this great place.
SteveW:
go to Until Uru then. you’re not blocked from going anywhere. :)
Brenda Rivera:
But everything seems to be locked away.
Tzalumen:
Do you know why it’s taking so long to recieve the message?
quaywall:
Any word on the events of the 19th?
Erik:
Hello Dr. Kodama
Dr. Kodama:
Hopefuly the barricades are coming down soon.
Dr. Kodama:
Hopefully news Books are released soon.
Jon Whitter:
Any news from Laxman and the latice?
Dr. Kodama:
Hopefully the restrictions don’t last long.
Poutrew:
*Very* good news ;)
Brenda Rivera:
Yipee!!
Brenda Rivera cheers
quaywall cheers
GaryWolf:
Excuse me Dr do you know anything about this downloading message in our Kis?
Erik cheers
Jon Whitter:
New books!
Jon Whitter does a dance
Dr. Kodama:
It’s an error of some kind.
Kato:
New Books?! Where?!
Tzalumen:
It’s just an error?
Pete Miller:
Does anyone here use voice chat? I’m trying to figure it out.
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
Jon Whitter:
No where yet but soon Katoo
Kato:
Thanks.
Tzalumen:
Have the Bahro cries been increasing in frequency?
Dr. Kodama:
The experience yesterday put things back a bit.
Dr. Kodama:
But we’ll recover.
Dr. Kodama:
Sorry, two days ago - time is running together.
Poutrew:
Ah, those Bahro can be a bit persnikety, can’t thay?
Dr. Kodama:
I don’t believe the calls are increasing.
Dr. Kodama:
No.
Kato:
I agree with Tzalumen–it looks like the Bahro screams are happening more.
quaywall:
Has there been an explanation for the event?
Dr. Kodama:
Not yet.
GaryWolf:
can you elaborate on the ki message if you indeed know something about it please :)
Kato:
Better question: What do YOU think it was?
Dr. Kodama:
I don’t have any thoughts that haven’t been expressed already.
Erik:
What’s wrong with the fountains in the hoods by the way? I heard Mr. Engberg closed off the water.
Thend:
Hello all
Kato:
I noticed the fountains as well.
Erik:
Hi Thend
Pete Miller:
Hello, Thend.
Tzalumen:
and the ampitheatre as well.
Thend:
Kodama here? Rand was just in UO
Kato:
Where did our Heek go? :P
SuperGram:
Hi everyone
Nefret:
hi SG
Liander:
hi SG
Jon Whitter:
Moved to the games room I hope
Kato:
Haha.
SuperGram:
Hi Becky
Dr. Kodama:
No Heek has bee removed. It’s not working.
Dr. Kodama:
We’re working on it.
Jon Whitter is sad
Dr. Kodama:
Before we return it.
Dr. Kodama:
Games room will be a while.
Kato:
Seems like the scream affected most devices and services (KIs, water, etc.)
GaryWolf:
can you tell us which book(s) you might release first?
Dr. Kodama:
No, I can not.
GaryWolf:
Are you here to remove the barrier infront of you ?
Tzalumen:
can you tell us when the next message from the DRC will be?
Dr. Kodama:
No.
Jon Whitter:
What are you working on at the moment Dr Kodama?
Dr. Kodama:
Unfortunately.
Kato:
Do you have a timeframe on when this area of the City will be open to us?
quaywall:
Have you heard from Dr. Watson?
Dr. Kodama:
Ages.
Dr. Kodama:
Have not heard from Dr. Watson in a long tie.
Dr. Kodama:
time.
GaryWolf:
Have you been speaking to Victor Laxman, he was here yesterday?
Jon Whitter:
Do you know where he went?
Dr. Kodama:
I do not.
Pete Miller:
Who was just speaking aloud?
Tzalumen:
have you heard anything about the fireflies in Kemo?
Thend:
Do you know where Watson, Sharper, etc, went to? I mean, what was it like when you all disbanded?
Dr. Kodama:
Yes, I speak with Victor often.
Dr. Kodama:
Not especially interesting. We all left. It was not a happy time.
Kato:
Do you know about Sharper, then?
Dr. Kodama:
No.
Jon Whitter:
I’m shocked that Sharper did not stay behind and steal everthing
Kato:
LOL
Jon Whitter:
everything*
Brenda Rivera:
What new information do you have for us today?
Nefret:
let me ask, What do you know?
Brenda Rivera:
Or is this more or less a courtesy call?
GaryWolf:
Dr Kodama, how do you take your coffee?
SuperGram:
Sorry quaywall
Dr. Kodama:
The only new information is that things make take longer than you think.
Dr. Kodama:
Hello.
SuperGram:
Hi everyone
Dr. Kodama:
Black.
Dr. Kodama:
It’s an error.
Thend:
Hmm. If this isn’t too personal, there’s been rumors about ‘something’ between you and Marie Sutherland, Doctor - Anthing to add to this?
GaryWolf:
lol
Tzalumen:
don’t projects like this always take longer then you think?
Dr. Kodama:
No. And nothing to the rumors. She is not my type.
Erik starts to laugh
Jon Whitter:
Playing hard to get
Thend:
Thank you, Doctor
Brenda Rivera:
I call dibs on the good Doctor. LOL
GaryWolf:
your probably both too busy :)
Tzalumen:
do you have a revised schedule yet?
Dr. Kodama:
Not sure I understand.
quaywall:
Any news of the d’ni survivor - is he still there?
Dr. Kodama:
No schedule yet. But I will push for one.
Dr. Kodama:
I always have.
Kato:
Er, Doctor, is there ANYTHING you can tell us today?
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
SuperGram:
When does the DRC plan on opening the rest of the city?
Oldman:
shorah all
Oldman waves
Kato:
Could you, uh, go ahead and tell us what that is?
Brenda Rivera starts to laugh
Tzalumen:
does the DRC plan on eventually opening up the pub?
Dr. Kodama:
Depends on what you want it to be.
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
GaryWolf:
good news :)
Kato laughs
Thend is still getting over Kodama saying ‘Yes’
Kato:
Knew I wasn’t gonna get anything out of that :P
Dredisant:
Oldman… your not supposed to be back there… its too dangerous
Tzalumen:
are we going to get working toilets any time soon?
Dr. Kodama:
Oldman, why are you there?
Dr. Kodama:
No.
SuperGram:
run Oldman
Beefo la Rue :
shorah
Oldman:
I’ve managed the superjump
Dan’nee:
Whew, I made it back.
Dan’nee:
Ki troubles
SuperGram:
Hide
Erik:
And there is a Bahro scream again! wacht out Oldman
Shaja Neera:
shoah
Erik:
*watch
Kato:
Heh–Bahro screams seem to be more increasing today.
Dan’nee:
What’s happened so far? Anyone care to fill me in in a PM?
D’airyair:
Shorah
Tzalumen:
are there any plans to set up a concession stand?
Dr. Kodama:
No.
TomahnaGuy:
Please fill me in
Dr. Kodama:
Although, I wouldn’t be surprised if at some point…
TomahnaGuy:
Are the barriers going to be lifted?
4runner:
What news can you tell us
Dr. Kodama:
Currently no work is happening there.
matt7188:
i think that is just dangorus
Thend:
Doctor, why do you carry thaat pipe with you everywhere and do you ever actually smoke the thing?
Dr. Kodama:
What news do you want?
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
skylark:
Dr. Kodama:
I do smoke.
TomahnaGuy:
When dr?
Tzalumen:
is it just me, or have the red lights on the pilliars on the bottom level brighter?
Kato:
What do you smoke?
Dr. Kodama:
When I’m not surrounded by people.
4runner:
Any new’s
Dan’nee:
Has there been any work lately on approving new Ages?
Thend:
Thanks, Doctor lol
Dr. Kodama:
Tobacco.
TomahnaGuy:
Does that meen today?
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
TomahnaGuy:
Woot!
Dr. Kodama:
There has been quite a bit of work.
TomahnaGuy:
Seriously?
Kato:
Oh, also, is there any particular reason why the telescope (a mechanical device as far as I know) has been removed?
matt7188:
yeah
Dan’nee:
Or Eder Tsogahl?
Erik:
What happened to the fire-marbles in the neighborhoods, Dr. Kodama?
TomahnaGuy:
Dr laxman why have all the things been removed in the hood?
TomahnaGuy:
Or the bevins
Dr. Kodama:
We have removed certain items until we are certain they are working properly.
Brenda Rivera:
well, the Heek table is obvious , it needed repairs, the others…
TomahnaGuy:
Is the city sfe DrKodama?
Dr. Kodama:
The telescope…well it was best to have it gone for a while.
Dr. Kodama:
I assume the city is safe.
TomahnaGuy:
Why?
Thend:
Doctor, would you agree that the Event conditions (wiping all KI’s, disabling marbles, imagers, and Heek) resemble something along the lines of a very strong Electro–Magnetic pulse?etc)
Brenda Rivera:
Hmm, maybe somethign you don’t want us seeing?
Kato:
Don’t want people spying on the City? ;)
SuperGram:
I think people are getting a bit antsy and want to explore
Dr. Kodama:
You’ve been watching LOST too much.
Dan’nee:
Becuase you don’t want us seeing what you’re working on?
Thend laughs
Kato laughs
TomahnaGuy:
Lol
Brenda Rivera starts to laugh
Kam Uraki:
Ah, in other words we can’t peep on the girls Bevins now Sad
matt7188:
lol
Dan’nee:
Are we expecting any other DRC visitors today?
TomahnaGuy:
Dr kodama are you opening the city now?
Dr. Kodama:
The city is probably safe but we do not work in probabilities.
Jahuti:
Barriers down now! Barriers down now!
Thend:
Doctor, good point, and many have been wondering also if you are actually IN LOST, as the person in the Dharma Foundation video - Is this true?
TomahnaGuy:
Where?
Dr. Kodama:
We need to make sure.
Brenda Rivera sighs
Erik:
By the way, is Bevin just the D’ni word for Neigborhood, or does it mean something else?
Dr. Kodama:
We could.
Kato:
So, are you and your crew going to have to inspect the whole City before you open it?
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
TomahnaGuy:
Dr kodama please allow us to access some city ares - just takotah
J’ni:
Dr, is anything ever certain? If so, what?
Kam Uraki:
lol, as though Kodama could wave his hand and the barriers would disappear with his devine powers
Dan’nee:
Why not let us help you check things out?
Kato:
Have you already inspected this area?
Tzalumen:
What happened to the guild of maintainers?
Dr. Kodama:
We are in the process of inspection already.
Dan’nee:
Give us some training and let us help out.
TomahnaGuy:
how long?
SuperGram:
I don’t see any DRC in there obviously working
TomahnaGuy:
until the inspection is finsihed
matt7188:
or is there some secret that the DRC has about the baricaded areas
Kam Uraki:
The DRC have cloaking devices, SG
SuperGram:
hehe
matt7188:
lol
Brenda Rivera chuckles
TomahnaGuy:
Dr Kodama when will the DRC site be updated and explorers allowed to acess eder delin and tsogahl again?
SuperGram:
I’d be willing to bet Kam
Dr. Kodama:
They are mostly inside.
Dr. Kodama:
In time.
Thend:
Doctor, in other words, do you moonlight with the Dharma Foundation?
Dr. Kodama:
No.
Dredisant:
Again!?
Dr. Kodama:
My brother.
Kam Uraki:
Inside in time? Existential answer Doc
Thend:
I see, thank you, Doctor, it explains a lot
TomahnaGuy:
Dr Kodama do you know where phil henderson or Dr watson is/ and we wont take no for an answe ;)
Dr. Kodama:
No.
TomahnaGuy:
hay!
SuperGram:
hehehe
Erik:
Nice try TG :)
Dan’nee:
I guess you should take that for an ansewr
SuperGram laughs
Kato:
If he actually does not know, then he shouldn’t be forced to answer ;)
Thend:
Folks seem real interested in Wat-man and the Phend-ster
Jimbo:
Well, well, if it aint Dr. Kodama!
Dr. Kodama:
I don’t know where either of htem are.
TomahnaGuy:
Dr Kodama is it true some of the DRC have met the bahro?
Dan’nee:
Dr. forgive my ignorance, but what do you work on in the DRC exactly?
Dr. Kodama:
You can ask them. I never have.
Kam Uraki:
Dr. K. If you happen to have a prison book around, I could make a few folks disappear for you if you wanted… y’know… accidentally
TomahnaGuy:
have you met yeesha?
GaryWolf:
Dr do you think we should fear the Bahro at this point ?
Dr. Kodama:
I oversee Phase One and Phase Two Restoration work.
Dan’nee:
Ah, thanks
SuperGram:
Do you think We’ll ever get to meet the Bahro?
Thend:
Kaaam lol
Dr. Kodama:
Early restoration - the first phases.
TomahnaGuy:
Dr Kodama what is there to hide int he library?
Dr. Kodama:
Nothing.
Kam Uraki:
Phase one is the risky part. Hope you use maintainer suits
TomahnaGuy:
then whyy not ope it?
Dr. Kodama:
Of course.
Tzalumen:
do you think the Bahro taste like chicken?
TomahnaGuy:
*open
Dr. Kodama:
I don’t think a Bahro would let you eat it.
Erik:
TG, it has to be inspected after Tuesday’s events
SuperGram:
I wouldn’t want to eat them
Dr. Kodama:
I’m not sure.
TomahnaGuy:
Dr Kodama do you know how we were all mysteriously linked out yesterday?
Dr. Kodama:
I’m sure someone knows.
Kam Uraki:
Oh, Kodama. Do you ever feel like pretending your Dartth Vader in the maintainer suit?
Dr. Kodama:
I don’t know.
TomahnaGuy:
on ytuesday
Dan’nee:
What is the DRC message we are downloading on our KI?
Jimbo:
ur loosing it, Kodama
Dr. Kodama:
An error.
TomahnaGuy:
its the tobacco
TomahnaGuy:
:P
Dr. Kodama:
Kam, no.
J’ni:
Dr., do you feel that gatherings like this are closer to interrogations; or press conferences?
Thend:
Doctor, seeing as we are all on equal ground here - the explorers and the DRC - will you please institute a collective organizing body in Uru without the ob vious hierarchy at present
Dan’nee:
Do you know what the error is involved with?
Brenda Rivera starts to laugh
Dr. Kodama:
No.
Dr. Kodama:
No.
TomahnaGuy:
Dr Kodama do you think that Yeesha willaffext the restoration?
Tzalumen:
are there D’ni weapons caches?
Thend:
Bad answer lol
Dr. Kodama:
No.
Dr. Kodama:
No.
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
TomahnaGuy:

Kam Uraki:
Kodama, can we stock the pub with booze so we can buy you a drink next time
Dan’nee:
Is there any plans on institutin a Guild system?
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
SuperGram:

Jimbo:
Arent u just a rigid academic?
TomahnaGuy:
Dr Kodama how come youve let some poeple over the baricdes?
Kam Uraki:
Okay, favorite drink, Doc?
GaryWolf:
Kodama will you post more often on the drc website ?
Erik:
Great idea Kam, then we could all have a seat.. and ask questions while we are having a good time! :)
Dr. Kodama:
We didn’t let them.
Dan’nee:
When does the DRC plan on instituting Guilds?
Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
Dr. Kodama:
No time.
TomahnaGuy:

Dr. Kodama:
Yes.
Jon Whitter:
Those people over the baricades are not even wearing hard hats this is not safe
TomahnaGuy:

Dr. Kodama:
No.
Jimbo:

TomahnaGuy:

Kam Uraki:

Erik:
It’s their own responsebility
Jimbo:

Fra’ni:

Brenda Rivera:
Is anything being unveiled today?
TomahnaGuy:
Dr Kodama as much as we (well I do to a certain extent) agree with the DRC don u think ur being over cautious
Tzalumen:
Well we ever be able to download ringtones to our Ki?
Thend:
That was.. intersting
TomahnaGuy:

Dan’nee:
Do you think that was on purpose?
GaryWolf:
I think he didnt have time for the stupid questions
Jon Whitter:
He was beamed up
TomahnaGuy:

Kato:

Dan’nee:

GaryWolf:

4runner:
He only answers with yes and no
Dan’nee:
But I came in a few minutes late
TomahnaGuy:
hes an idiot
Erik:
Did he linked? Or… was he linked???
[Kodama linked out unexpectedly but reappeared]
TomahnaGuy:
a weel!
TomahnaGuy:
*wek
quaywall:
Fair enough - that’s something to wrk with
TomahnaGuy:
*week
Erik:
Aw… I thought a few days!
Dr. Kodama:
But hopefully some other areas will be open sooner.
Jon Whitter:
Engberg is a slow worker
Dan’nee:
At least we know how much to wait
Erik:
But… I can live with that….
TomahnaGuy:
please persuade them to make it sooner dr
Dr. Kodama:
One other area at least.
Raftel:
People are already finding ways around these barrirers
Dr. Kodama:
I will try.
Kato:
Other areas of the City or entirely new areas to us?
TomahnaGuy:
ty
Tzalumen:
depending on your definition of a few, a week could be a few days
Dr. Kodama:
I understand it’s frustrating.
SuperGram:
Tell them at least clean up the hoods
TomahnaGuy thanks dr kodama
TomahnaGuy:
for trying
Erik:
thank you Doctor
Firefly:
What other area will be opened dr kodama
TomahnaGuy:
one final question….
Dr. Kodama:
Yes. One more.
TomahnaGuy:
when will we see the JaTaeri district?
Dredisant:
if Kodama needs permission from his superiors, then we will just wait… its not like Kodama doesnt want to let us into the rest of the city
Dredisant:
right?
Dr. Kodama:
Long time. It’s still under my control and there is quite a bit of work needed on my team.
TomahnaGuy:
awww
Thend:
Doctor, upon what authority do you and the DRC make demands upon the explorers like this - to ‘wait’, and so forth?
TomahnaGuy:
whats coming soon then?
Erik:
So it’s still in phase 1 or 2?
Dan’nee:
Thanks for answering all our questions.
Dr. Kodama:
Thend we control the barriers.
Thend:
Curses!
SuperGram:
:)
TomahnaGuy:
can u lift them for just tonight?
Kato:
Yes Doctor thank you for your time. Oh, if you can–will there be any more DRC staff here today?
TomahnaGuy:
because we like you
Dr. Kodama:
We control the Books.
Dr. Kodama:
I would watch how you talk.
TomahnaGuy:
u control everything
SuperGram:
Thanks for you patience with us Dr. K
TomahnaGuy:
we know
Tzalumen:
what kind of equipment are you using to make the repairs?
Thend:
One day, oh yes, one day, the EXPLORERS will control the barriers - mark my words!
Dr. Kodama:
I’ve been in a good mood lately for some reason.
TomahnaGuy:
really how odd
GaryWolf:
maybe its the coffee
TomahnaGuy:
:P
Dredisant:
good to hear Dr. K
Matthew Miller:
Well, it’s good to be back in the cavern
Kato:
Maybe it’s the pipe ;)
Erik:
Or the tobacco
TomahnaGuy:
or the new pipe stuff
TomahnaGuy:
hehe
SuperGram:
that must be an important clue to us
TomahnaGuy:
same thought patterns
Dr. Kodama:
Although comments like that wear on me.
TomahnaGuy:
sorry
TomahnaGuy:
couldnt resist
SuperGram:
Why is Dr. Kodama in such a good mood.
Erik:
Sorry Doctor. Thank you for answering questions.
TomahnaGuy:

TomahnaGuy:

Dr. Kodama:
