Webheads chat logs from November 19, 2000

Meet the people in the chat today

Vance Maggi John Felix Ying Lan Pon Arif
UAE Germany Puerto Rico Brazil Taiwan Thailand Turkey

and a message from Gloria in Paraguay

Today, Pon joined us in Homestead at the same time Felix, Maggi, and Ying Lan started talking in HearMe, and since Pon couldn’t join the voice chat, everyone moved to Homestead for text chat while continuing to talk at HearMe. Eventually Arif joined us from Turkey and like the others came over to the Homestead text chat. It was nice to have a chance to talk with old friend Felix and at the same time to welcome a new student, Pon, and a guest, Arif, who had read about us on one of the professional lists. Pon has artistic talents and might be able to make a logo for us to put on our Webheads t-shirt, which we’re still hoping to be able to make and distribute for free (we can dream, can’t we?).

Please make a choice: Homestead or Hear Me chat logs

Homestead text chat logs

Homestead does not buffer a lot of chat. By the time I thought to copy the chat into my text editor, the first part had already disappeared. As we start the log below, Vance and Pon are talking, and John is present in the chat. John, Vance, Maggi, Felix, and Ying Lan are also talking in the HearMe Voice Creator voice chat.

<ying> who is your favourite?

<Maggi> no is close in Florida

<Vance> My favorite now is Gore because I don't trust Bush.

<ying> But Bush seems to win it...

<Vance> I think Gore is at least intelligent and Bush is not

<John> I don't like either one.

<ying> Do you think the system will change... I have heard Gore got more than Bush.

<Maggi> well...only good thing is Congress is just about evenly split....

<Maggi> Gore got the popular vote

<Vance> Gore received more popular votes in the USA

<Maggi> the electoral college may go

<Maggi> but not without a fight

<John> I haven't turned on the TV news for three days now.

<Felix> How about the T-shirt? How is it going so far?

<Vance> There are many of our projects that don't get far off the ground.

<Maggi> the 22 smallest states have less population than California but twice the number of electoral votes

<Vance> There has been no progress on the t-shirt

<Felix> What a pity!!!!!!!1

<Vance> Pon, our idea is to (1) design a logo

Maggi: weird...I could hear you still

Felix: Vance, have you ever heard about Douglas Consolo?

Ying: GEt what?

John: If you read a lot, you build your vocabulary fast enough to get rid of the bilingual dictionaries.

Felix: That's right John...

John: Yes, you are right. I remember when I had to use one.

Felix: can you type that Vance?

Ying: why do we have to go there?


Ying: I don't understand the sentences... "He that cannot reason is a fool. He that will not is a bigot. He that dear not is a slave."

Vance: that dare not?

John: Vance, when you move to another country, you keep your residency in your state in order to maintain your citizenship

Vance: Yeah, you did

John: If you move to a territory, you keep your citizenship, so you don't keep your residency in a state.

Ying: i will remember your words.

Vance: So far, very few webheads have actually met each otehr

Vance: other

Ying: I usually travel alone.. so I only choice the safe country.

Ying: But Safe or not.. it is up to God.

Vance: Hard to say these days. We were just in Spain last summer.

Vance: There have been several bombs near the part where we were.

Ying: Several bombs?

Ying: You know the airplane crash happened In last October here.

Vance: Yeah, the Basque separatists. My point is, you never know where it's safe. You would think, in Spain ...

Vance: And of course we saw pictures of the crash at your airport

Ying: You never thought it was Singarpore air line...

Maggi: nasty thing

Vance: Really. I have a colleague who just got back from Yemen. Perfectly safe.

Ying: I and r

Ying: Who is r?

Vance: left and right?

Maggi: left and right

Ying: got it.

Maggi: l and r is easily mistaken in Chinese, Japanese, etc.

Vance: I'm not sure where you can go that's safe. I went to Sipidan once. It seemed safe to me.

Ying: maggi.. I try to know some guys on line. but I have not guts to make friend with those guys.

Vance: It seems to have worked for Maggi

John: You would be surprised, Maggi. A lot of people can't chew gum and walk at the same time.

Ying: It is really dangerous...

John: Remember President Ford?

Ying: Yes.. Ford..

Ying: It is a joke about Left and Right here?

Vance: What's the joke?

Maggi: not a joke Ying...the pilot could have made a mistake

John: What is the Joke, Ying?

Ying: "A lot of people can't chew gum and walk at the same time."

Ying: I got what you said.

Ying: You were talking about the airplan crash.

Maggi: oh...I thought you meant the left and right


John: So did I.

Ying: airplane

Maggi: airplane

Ying: The driver of the airplane have been in our airport sever times before.

Ying: has

Ying: several

Vance: I guess, in the storm, he thought he knew where he was

Maggi: the storm cut visibility

Vance: If it was his first time he would have double checked everything

Maggi: you don't drive airplanes, except on the fly them or pilot them

Maggi: on the ground

Ying: i think it is destiny..

Ying: Some peopel died, some people live.

Maggi: wrong place at the wrong time

Vance: There was an earthquake, now a plane crash

Maggi: I would have gotten run over the other day if I could walk normally

Maggi: someone ran a red light but I was only half way across

Ying: maggi.. I got the book "the tenth insight" this afternoon.

John: I just got Heart of Winter.

Vance: What's that about?

Ying: Heart of Winter.. it is a novel?

John: Yes, Ying, it is the nineth novel in a series.
