(03/04 13:02:04)Korov'ev: Thanks.

(03/04 13:02:11)Korov'ev: Now, as usual, I'll remind you the 5 Meeting Rules:

(03/04 13:02:20)Korov'ev: 1. Please *keep chatter to a minimum* while speakers are talking. The occasional comment or emote is fine, but be respectful and let the speaker finish.

(03/04 13:02:29)Korov'ev: 2. If you have a question for a speaker, please don't ask it directly: PM it to me. Be sure a "?" is somewhere in it to properly log the question in the queue.

(03/04 13:02:41)Korov'ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you're ready for the next question.

(03/04 13:02:54)Korov'ev: 4. If a question requires a long explanation, we may have to skip it to keep things moving. In that case, you can always PM any speaker once they've left the stage.

(03/04 13:03:05)Korov'ev: 5. A summary and a chatlog of the Meeting will be published in the next few days on the Guild of Messengers website.

(03/04 13:03:18)Korov'ev: Following this Meeting, those who need it could gather for an expedition to Tsogahl and Delin.

(03/04 13:03:26)Korov'ev: That said, let's get started!

(03/04 13:03:41)Korov'ev: Our first speaker presents a party for an important day: let's welcome AlanD!

(03/04 13:04:28)AlanD: I'm the first of several folks to be announcing events today

(03/04 13:04:35)AlanD: International Women's Day, Wednesday March 8th.

(03/04 13:04:47)AlanD: There will be a celebration of International Women's Day in both music and chat.

(03/04 13:04:59)AlanD: Music will begin from 13 KI, which is European evening time, on Radio Free D'ni

(03/04 13:05:11)AlanD: with Joker following when I fall alseep after about 4 hours.

(03/04 13:05:30)AlanD: (all that beer, you know, and being an old geezer too....)

(03/04 13:05:43)AlanD: Misty and companions will be with me on the plaza and will chat about significant women and their accomplishments.

(03/04 13:06:05)AlanD: (if anyone would like to help, please contact Misty)

(03/04 13:06:17)AlanD: Music channels: and look for stream links

(03/04 13:06:30)AlanD: or and look for Joker or Radio Free D'ni

(03/04 13:07:17)AlanD: and it will be albums that have weak tracks, a couple of tracks from each.

(03/04 13:07:30)AlanD: as usual, 13 KI, on the plaza

(03/04 13:07:39)AlanD: That's it from me :)

(03/04 13:07:47)AlanD: Any questions?

(03/04 13:07:52)Guild of Guilds: An evening of bad music?

(03/04 13:07:58)Korov'ev: none in the queue

(03/04 13:08:09)AlanD: Drat, I meant albums that have NO weak tracks....

(03/04 13:08:10)Max: should that not been 'No' weak tracks?

(03/04 13:08:13)TrapperDave: Misty is well know as HB or Hummingbird

(03/04 13:08:19)Eternal Seeker: are Men allowed on the IWD

(03/04 13:08:39)Eternal Seeker: ?

(03/04 13:08:39)Max: if you promise to behave!

(03/04 13:08:42)AlanD: all are welcome to listen of course, and it's in a public place :)

(03/04 13:08:48)mTX17 throws stuffed animals and notes symbols in alans direction

(03/04 13:09:01)Rabbit: yes, please DO come, and wear as LITTLE as possible!

(03/04 13:09:07)Rabbit starts to laugh

(03/04 13:09:19)Korov'ev: Right... don't run away Alan ;-)

(03/04 13:09:21)Max: did you say it's at the City Plaza?

(03/04 13:09:30)AlanD: yes Max

(03/04 13:09:42)Korov'ev: Our next speaker is planning a parade: let's welcome Snickuster!

(03/04 13:09:44)AlanD: OK, Korovev, I'll stay put for now....

(03/04 13:09:56)AlanD bows

(03/04 13:10:04)AlanD bows

(03/04 13:10:17)Snickuster: Good day to you all. We have yet another party planned! The annual St. Patrick's parade is coming up quickly and I'm here to share the details with you.

(03/04 13:10:33)Snickuster: St. Patrick's is going to be a bit different this year, with the help of Alan and Joker.

(03/04 13:10:43)Snickuster: Not only will we have the parade, but there will also be a dance party in the Greeter's Pub!

(03/04 13:10:54)Snickuster: Now I know St. Patrick's is on a Friday, March 17th to be exact, but we wanted to make sure everyone had the chance to come and party with us!

(03/04 13:11:09)Snickuster: This means we will have two parades, the 1st at 1100KI, and the 2nd at 1900KI.

(03/04 13:11:20)Snickuster: The 1st parade will start at the plaza, and will end at the Ferry Nexus book, where you will then link to the Greeter's Pub.

(03/04 13:11:33)Snickuster: If you don't already have the Greeter's Pub shirt, stop by Kirel sometime soon to grab the green shirt.

(03/04 13:11:44)Snickuster: After the first parade is over, we will party in the Greeter's Pub until 1900KI, where we will link to the Ferry and continue the parade, which will end at the plaza.

(03/04 13:12:00)Snickuster: Do not feel obligated to attend the whole party! This event was made to last a long time so everyone from any timezone could attend.

(03/04 13:12:12)Snickuster: I'm also looking for two leaders for the parade, one for the 1100KI time, and one for the 1900KI time. Please PM me if you are interested. I will pick based on a first come, first serve basis.

(03/04 13:12:27)Snickuster: And I ask, please PM me only if you are 100% sure you can make it. As the leader, feel free to stop around the city and dance for a while, like in the Hall of Kings or by the Library.

(03/04 13:12:39)Snickuster: And of course, the most important part, wear GREEN GREEN GREEN!

(03/04 13:12:49)Snickuster: You can find all this information, and the links to Alan and Joker's streams, on the forums.

(03/04 13:12:58)Snickuster: I can't wait to see everyone there, in their fancy green outfits!

(03/04 13:13:20)mTX17 invites mister grinch

(03/04 13:13:23)Rabbit: Bright Emerald Green , please!

(03/04 13:13:47)Eternal Seeker: will the play Irish Music?

(03/04 13:13:53)Snickuster: They will! :)

(03/04 13:13:55)AlanD: I'll wear dark green, it may look black to you :)

(03/04 13:13:56)Rabbit: I love green too - spinach, lettuce, grass .... nom, nom, nom

(03/04 13:14:13)Snickuster nudges Alan

(03/04 13:14:13)AlanD: Yes, all Irish tracks - well, by Irish musicians

(03/04 13:14:15)Korov'ev: Our next question is from enders.

(03/04 13:14:15)Korov'ev: [enders] ?Is green hair allowed?

(03/04 13:14:22)Snickuster: Of course, Enders! :)

(03/04 13:15:33)Korov'ev: Thank you, Alan and Snick!

(03/04 13:16:24)Obducted Joker: Everyone fell asleep

(03/04 13:16:39)Max: or crached?

(03/04 13:16:42)AlanD: Waiting for Korovev to let us step down...

(03/04 13:16:50)Rabbit does a dance

(03/04 13:16:53)AlanD: Are we there yet? :D

(03/04 13:16:57)Snickuster: We have not been released yet :)

(03/04 13:16:58)Korov'ev: you're free :)

(03/04 13:17:04)giovanni4: Buona sera a tutti voi

(03/04 13:17:05)Snickuster bows

(03/04 13:17:14)TrapperDave: we release you two

(03/04 13:17:15)Korov'ev: for now!

(03/04 13:17:17)AlanD: Ah, another music track :)

(03/04 13:17:18)AlanD bows

(03/04 13:17:24)Korov'ev: And now, some misterious news from: Max!

(03/04 13:18:17)Max: So... a little bit of good news for all, I'd think

(03/04 13:18:31)Max: We were already before the 7 Years Anniversary in touch with CYAN and made some inquirys on the following matters: New Accounts Creation / CavCon Status / CYAN's future plans regarding the Cavern

(03/04 13:18:53)Max: We got a reply this week that in short is as follows: CYAN has had a meeting reg. account creation. A solution to activate that is in the works but that requires writing some coding and they'll impliment that when they can. So... stay patient! [there was a topic a few months back about tech issues hampering that, IIRC]

(03/04 13:19:20)Max: Reg CavCon Status: If RAWA is up to it, he should have a look and let us know. If not, then Chogon will, or even Tor'i... [my guess is that this might require doing some calculations or reading graphs etc.]. So yet again... stay patient!

(03/04 13:19:47)Max: Vicki / Tor'i also mentioned the Gateway Project and the Fan made content, as something very good and positive for the future. I (Max) do not have knowledge of who is active and involved in that. So say ( Ay ) if any of you are presently here?

(03/04 13:20:21)Max: No?... And regarding the Future of the Cavern... as these things are connected. CYAN will reveal their plans for us in due time with posts on the MOULa Forums

(03/04 13:20:40)Korov'ev: we have OpenUru later ;)

(03/04 13:20:44)Max: But to quote Tor'i at CYAN.../ All of these topics touch on the future of the Cavern and depending on how all of it goes is when we can really talk about plans. We are very hopeful that everything will come together in the not too distant future... /

(03/04 13:21:10)Max: I'd say it's a bit encouraging at least

(03/04 13:21:12)Rabbit: is that in MY lifetime (remaining)?

(03/04 13:21:22)Emor D'ni Lap: aye

(03/04 13:21:28)Rabbit: good

(03/04 13:21:34)Max: what timespan it is, I can't tell

(03/04 13:21:38)TrapperDave: yes be opimistic :)

(03/04 13:21:40)Rabbit: oh

(03/04 13:21:42)AlanD: Very positive, I'd say

(03/04 13:22:02)Max: I hope it is positive... that's all from me...

(03/04 13:22:07)Max bows

(03/04 13:22:18)Korov'ev: any other questions?

(03/04 13:22:25)Korov'ev: Thank you Max!

(03/04 13:22:26)Emor D'ni Lap applauds

(03/04 13:22:32)Snickuster: As Max just leaves the stage suddenly

(03/04 13:22:49)Rabbit: Max is shy

(03/04 13:22:56)Max: quick exit...

(03/04 13:23:06)Korov'ev: no questions for Max! :-p

(03/04 13:23:07)AlanD: Leaping Max's - is he related to Spring-Heeled Jack?

(03/04 13:23:12)Korov'ev: And now, some news from OpenUru: let's welcome rarified!

(03/04 13:23:18)TrapperDave laughs

(03/04 13:23:34)rarified waves hello

(03/04 13:23:35)Emor D'ni Lap says yay

(03/04 13:23:38)Rabbit waves hello

(03/04 13:23:39)rarified: Hi folks!

(03/04 13:23:51)rarified: I wanted to give a quick update on the Minkata shard(s).

(03/04 13:24:12)rarified: We are ***this*** close to getting the Minkata 'beta' server up and running.

(03/04 13:24:29)rarified: It is the shard which will be used to house fan content.

(03/04 13:24:54)rarified: The plan is to have Doobes' GoMe Pub as the first fan age tested in Minkata.

(03/04 13:25:29)rarified: I am hoping my first close and most vulnerable tester(s) will have access to it today or tonight.

(03/04 13:26:01)rarified: If they can properly access the shard, I'll send an invitation to Doobes to verify his age works as he designed.

(03/04 13:26:22)rarified: After that, I'll make a general announcement in the Minkata section of the OpenUru forums

(03/04 13:26:27)rarified: that the new shard is open.

(03/04 13:26:50)rarified: You will be able to access the new shard with your existing Minkata installation, if you have one.

(03/04 13:27:06)rarified: There will only be a different way of starting the client that is required.

(03/04 13:27:18)AlanD: He gets confetti, I got ladies underwear. From a guy. What to do?

(03/04 13:27:31)rarified: The client will update your files to correspond to whatever shard you currently are running.

(03/04 13:27:47)rarified: @AlanD, I'll share mine, you can keep yours.

(03/04 13:27:56)Rabbit roars with laughter

(03/04 13:28:00)mTX17: :)

(03/04 13:28:01)Tai'lahr snickers.

(03/04 13:28:05)Snickuster giggles

(03/04 13:28:08)TrapperDave laughs

(03/04 13:28:19)rarified: Ok, so that has been the focus of my efforts over the past couple of weeks.

(03/04 13:28:40)Korov'ev: Our next question is from enders.

(03/04 13:28:40)Korov'ev: [enders] ?can anyone volunteer to be a testor?

(03/04 13:28:44)rarified: We do have new client code (a small update) from Christian that has made it into Minkata shards.

(03/04 13:28:52)rarified: (Not now, but today)

(03/04 13:29:31)rarified: Once we have confirmed we have a working beta, we'll talk about combining fan content on the main Minkata shard.

(03/04 13:29:48)rarified: That's all the news fit to print today!

(03/04 13:30:13)rarified: Any questions?

(03/04 13:30:16)Korov'ev: can anyone volunteer to be a tester?

(03/04 13:30:41)rarified: Yes. On the OpenUru forum pages, you can download the installer and make an account.

(03/04 13:30:50)rarified: You need to have MOULa already installed on your PC.

(03/04 13:31:10)Korov'ev: also for the beta shard?

(03/04 13:31:13)Rabbit: Do you need to make a new copy? like for TOC?

(03/04 13:31:40)rarified: You only need install the regular Minkata. Then you can run that client with some extra options (we'll

(03/04 13:32:00)rarified: describe how in a forum post) to access the Minkata-beta shard.

(03/04 13:32:23)AlanD: Thanks. rarified. I may take the plunge into Minkata shard now.

(03/04 13:32:29)Korov'ev: Our next question is from Christian Walther.

(03/04 13:32:30)Korov'ev: [Christian Walther] Can you explain why this is a separate shard? Isn't the existing Minkata "beta" enough?

(03/04 13:32:30)rarified: @Rabbit, no you don't need a new copy.

(03/04 13:32:43)TrapperDave: Will it update it's self ?

(03/04 13:33:01)rarified: The reason for the beta shard is that it will be used to test one and only one contribution at a time.

(03/04 13:33:03)Korov'ev: please direct the questions to me

(03/04 13:33:15)rarified: To limit the scope of damage if there is a problem.

(03/04 13:33:45)Korov'ev: Our next question is from Nev'yn.

(03/04 13:33:45)Korov'ev: [Nev'yn] Will the GoMe Tavern be accessable via the Nexus, or some other way?

(03/04 13:33:47)rarified: It may turn out to not be necessary in the long run as we gain experience with fan content on MOSS.

(03/04 13:34:30)rarified: For now, you will need to use the client console commands to access the GoMe pub.

(03/04 13:34:51)rarified: So when you are running on the beta shard, you will be running on an "internal" client.

(03/04 13:35:38)rarified: There may need to be some addition "good neighbor" policies written for that environment.

(03/04 13:36:07)rarified: When we get one or more fan Nexii we'll be able to dispense with that difference.

(03/04 13:36:29)rarified: Next Q?

(03/04 13:36:38)Korov'ev: none in the queue

(03/04 13:36:57)Korov'ev: Thank you rarified!

(03/04 13:36:58)rarified: Anything else, feel free to PM or post on the OU forums.

(03/04 13:37:10)rarified: The Beta shard planning thread is at
