Webheads chat logs from June 17, 2001

Meet the people in the chat today

Vance Maggi Michael Ying Lan John Sue
UAE Germany Australia Taiwan Puerto Rico Japan

and Mark from Denmark

Today's chat, as usual, took place in not all the usual places. Sue started my day with Webheads when she found me hanging out on Yahoo at my office, and I prepared her for the class by walking her through logon to Tapped In. Sue asked if we were still doing voice chat, so we tried the Telcopoint site, and to my surprise found it working. I emailed Webheads the good news, and eight hours later, dashed back from a meeting at work to find Maggi, John and Sue in John's office at Tapped In. They waited till I told them via ICQ that I had reached my Tapped In office, still under construction despite the efforts of the week before, where they joined me shortly. Ying Lan soon arrived at Homestead, which we were all watching, and she too joined us at Tapped In. Michael appeared, enroute almost to his WebCT conference in Vancouver, and mentioned that he'd read from my email that my Telcopoint voice chat room had worked for Sue and I earlier, so we all tried it. Michael was unable to access it, but all the others were eventually able to enter, though John didn't have a microphone. Our final surprise of the day was to find Mark there. Mark was a teenager from Denmark who had somehow discovered our site through a search at a Danish chat portal. Mark didn't have a microphone either, but he turned out to be a nice fellow, and he left a record of his side of the chat in a Telcopoint text chat window, which I saved, adding what I could recall of the voice part of the chat.

Sue [guest] says, "wondering what it would be"

maggid [guest] says, "yes, but we have long dark winters then Sue"

VanceS says, "We're closer to the equator so we get less variation in

summer and winter, and also, we don't use daylight saving time"

JohnSte says, "Same here."

JohnSte says, "I'm in the tropics, Sue."

VanceS says, "or in Japan"

JohnSte says, "Oh, I'm talkin heat index."

VanceS says, "New cars get scratched all the time here. You can't be concerned about your body work"

VanceS says, "Each year the car must be inspected, and if the damage is bad enough to not pass inspection, you have to get it fixed."

VanceS says, "All the time I go out and see kids sitting on other people's cars. Sometimes they're on my car."

JohnSte asks, "How bad does it have to be?"

VanceS asks, "I had to fix mine when someone actually put a dent in it. Is that what you meant by 'swollen' sue?"

VanceS says, "BUT here's the good news ..."

SRI_46 [guest] arrives from nowhere.

Sue [guest] says, "hi , ying"

SRI_46 [guest] says, "hi... how to rename my name to Ying"

VanceS says, "Hi Ying Lan. What's the command for that? Phil told us last week."

VanceS says, "So it's in the logs, which I've just put up."

VanceS says, "I'm looking it up if no one knows off the top of his/her head"

JohnSte says, "I'm looking for it. I THINK it is /rename or something like that."

Ying [guest] says, "I have already done"

VanceS asks, "very good Ying Lan. How did you do it?"

Ying [guest] says, "rename my name .. but I only see SRI_46 on the board."

Ying [guest] says, "Forget it."

Ying [guest] asks, "How are you today?"

Ying [guest] asks, "Have you known very well about Billie Holiday?"

VanceS says, "I know the answer to that one. On the board, you have to click UPDATE"

VanceS says, "I just did that and I see 'Ying' there now"

Ying [guest] says, "Ying... is on the board."

VanceS smiles

Ying [guest] says, "Go back to "Billie Holiday""

VanceS says, "Billie Holiday is a great jazz singer, or was"

Ying [guest] says, "Somebody else tells me her story."

Ying [guest] says, "I have read a piece of her story in Chinese today."

maggid [guest] says, "i Ying"

Ying [guest] says, "When she was born, her mother was 13 years old at the time."

maggid [guest] says, "hi"

maggid [guest] says, "wow"

JohnSte says, "One of my students did a report on her last semester."

Sue [guest] says, "wow,"

VanceS says, "We could probably find a lot about her on the Internet"

JohnSte says, "My student did."

Sue [guest] asks, "does she have a typical song?"

Ying [guest] says, "She was rapped when she was 12. then she was sold to be prostitute."

maggid [guest] says, "yuk"

VanceS says, "raped"

Ying [guest] says, "raped."

maggid [guest] says, "men"

Ying [guest] says, "I was shocked... you know... Billie Holiday is a very successful Jazz singer."

Ying [guest] says, "Even she was dead long time ago, people mention her always say... her voice is beautiful"

Sue [guest] asks, "ying , would you show me the URL to read her story?"

JohnSte says, "Sue, there is a list of her songs at"

Editor's note: Who says no one ever reads these transcripts! A reader (who wishes to remain anonymous) alerted me in October 2009 that this link was broken. She suggested instead: So nice, thanks, Reader!! - Vance

Ying [guest] says, "I am afraid that I can not do it."

VanceS says, "That's the one I'm looking at. There's another ..."

JohnSte says, "There is a very intersting page about her at"

Ying [guest] says, "Because I read her story from a article talking about New York."

maggid [guest] says, "you can project it here"

VanceS says, ""

maggid [guest] says, "the url"

JohnSte says, "I'm trying to find the instructions to project it."

VanceS asks, "That would open another window on Ying Lan's machine. Is that alright Ying?"

maggid [guest] says, "I think you type /project and the url"

MichaelAC arrives from nowhere.

Personal_Recorder_30627 follows MichaelAC to here.

JohnSte projects the URL:

Ying [guest] says, "it is o.k."

JohnSte says, "Found it."

JohnSte says, "Hi, michael."

Ying [guest] says, "You have already opened it."

MichaelAC exclaims, "Wow I'm with Billie Holliday all of a sudden!"

Ying [guest] asks, "Michael?"

VanceS says, "Hello Michael"

maggid [guest] says, "i mc"

MichaelAC exclaims, "Hi everyone!"

Sue [guest] says, "hello, michael"

Ying [guest] says, "Vance just opened it."

JohnSte says, "You were right about the command, Maggi"

maggid [guest] says, "that worked Ying"

Ying [guest] says, "maggi opened it."

MichaelAC asks, "So what are we doing with Billie?"

Ying [guest] says, "sorry."

JohnSte says, "John opened it."

maggid [guest] says, "I didn't"

JohnSte says, "I did."

Ying [guest] says, "I am asking someone else knows her story."

JohnSte says, "Sue wanted to read about her."

MichaelAC says, "Ok - I get the picture."

maggid [guest] says, "lol"

MichaelAC exclaims, "It was NOT intended to be a pun!"

JohnSte says, "So, she sang Blue Moon"

maggid [guest] still laughing

VanceS says, "You were asking about her songs, Sue:"

Ying [guest] asks, "Which song is her famous song?"

Ying [guest] asks, "Let's call the whole thing off?"

MichaelAC says, "That is a famous song. I actually don't know much about her."

JohnSte says, "That might be one of them, Ying, but I think she had a lot of famous songs."

Ying [guest] says, "My quesiton is "Why has Billie Holiday been unhappy for her life?""

VanceS says, "What does this mean? It's from 'Billie's Blues' ..."

VanceS says, "My man wouldn't give me no breakfast"

VanceS says, "Wouldn't give me no dinner"

VanceS says, "Fought about my supper and put me outdoors"

VanceS says, "Had the dark clay make black spots on my clothes"

Ying [guest] says, "Really? Michael.... I asked every foreigner here... they loved Billie Hoiday especial for someone who loves Jazz."

MichaelAC says, "Well I don't especially love jazz....."

Ying [guest] asks, "ohhh?"

JohnSte says, "I only know about her from the student's report."

MichaelAC says, "I love the blues but I was more into the black bluesMEn of the southern states of the US."

MichaelAC says, "Or Chicago."

MichaelAC says, "Muddy Waters, Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, etc etc"

maggid [guest] asks, "o women then?"

maggid [guest] says, "no"

VanceS says, "Billie was born in Philadelphia (the north)"

MichaelAC says, "No Maggi. It's a bit sexist but......"

Ying [guest] asks, "then?"

maggid [guest] asks, "but what?"

MichaelAC he always listened to music that he figured that he might sing one day.....

maggid [guest] says, "ah has"

MichaelAC .ands as a guy he listened to guys sing!

maggid [guest] says, "can't sing a woman's song"

MichaelAC says, "No not really."

Ying [guest] says, "That's my question.."

maggid [guest] asks, "why not?"

MichaelAC says, "Of the hundreds of songs I have learned only 5 or so are from women."

maggid [guest] asks, "so?"

MichaelAC says, "I don't know exactly....."

maggid [guest] says, "hmmmmmm"

MichaelAC he think it's simply a matter of he preferred men singing.

Ying [guest] exclaims, "Come on!!"

MichaelAC says, "(Why does I come up as you when I type?)"

maggid [guest] says, "it is just words"

JohnSte says, "Because you are talking."

VanceS sees I, not 'you'

maggid [guest] says, "lol"

MichaelAC says, "No it is not just words. It's a mood, an attitude, an outlook....and I am a man and I think it makes perfect sense that I can relate more easily to the way a man sings and feels."

VanceS says, "I will try this out myself ..."

JohnSte says, "My department chair asked "Who is "You"? when we had a workshop on tapped in."

VanceS gets I for I

Ying [guest] asks, "Where is Sue?"

maggid [guest] says, "listening"

MichaelAC says, "Ok - got the I/you thing sorted. Just didn't notice it before."

VanceS says, "I just UPDATED, Sue is still here"

VanceS asks, "I don't notice it at all ???"

JohnSte says, "That's a good picture of you, Michael."

Sue [guest] says, "i am still here, just reading the profile and try whether i can hear the song"

Ying [guest] asks, "I just read Michael's email... you will be in Vancouver?"

MichaelAC exclaims, "Thank you John. I searched high and low!"

Ying [guest] says, "That's wonderful... I love Vancouver."

MichaelAC says, "Yes YL. I'm going to Vancouver on Tuesday."

MichaelAC asks, "Tell me Ying - what should I do while I'm there?"

Ying [guest] says, "To visit the city..."

maggid [guest] asks, "to get away from winter in Oz mc?"

VanceS says, "On Saturday night, catch the music scene"

JohnSte asks, "What conference is it, Michael?"

MichaelAC says, "Yes partly that Maggi. but Vancouver is not so warm. About 60 degrees F."

VanceS says, "There are two or three microbreweries in town if you like a good beer"

JohnSte says, "Sounds like a good place to visit."

maggid [guest] says, "about the same as here mc..."

Ying [guest] says, "But one guy told me...It used to be safe there.. but it is getting worse now."

MichaelAC says, "More interested in the music Vance. It's the annual WebCT conference"

VanceS says, "take a ferry boat to the opposite shore, there's another microbrewery over there"

MichaelAC says, "I like the idea of a ferry..."

VanceS says, "Go for a jog in Stanley Park"

JohnSte says, "I'm supposed to be taking a class about how to manage WebCT."

MichaelAC exclaims, "Very Buddhist!"

MichaelAC exclaims, "Well I can tell you all about WebCT John!"

maggid [guest] says, "I don't think mc jogs"

Ying [guest] asks, "What do you mean?"

VanceS says, "runs (jogs)"

MichaelAC says, "I do sometimes. When I remember., (to jog!)"

VanceS says, "we had to jog your memory"

JohnSte says, "I'm not going to take the class - I'm just supposed to. One of my colleagues is going to tall me about it."

Ying [guest] says, "Stantly Park is amazing.. but if you have time.. try to go to Vancouver Island."

MichaelAC exclaims, "Good one Vance!"

MichaelAC says, "OK Ying I will. Other people have said that too."

maggid [guest] says, "not a bad idea mc"

Ying [guest] says, "Victoria is more beautiful than Vancouver .. in my opinion."

MichaelAC asks, "Is Telcopoint still working Vance?"

Ying [guest] says, "it is more slow down than Vancover..."

VanceS says, "It was earlier today. Sue and I tried it out."

JohnSte says, "I couldn't get in a while ago."

MichaelAC says, "I'm tempted to try but it probably won't

John says."

JohnSte asks, "Maybe Vance has to be there for it to work?"

MichaelAC says, "That can't be right. You think so? (Or are you joking?)"

VanceS says, "I'm trying it now"

JohnSte says, "Not joking, just wondering."

VanceS says, ""

VanceS says, "it appears to be working"

JohnSte says, "It said there was no confernce by that name - so maybe he has to sign in for the confernence to be working."

MichaelAC says, "OK I'll try it but I'm not hopeful."

VanceS says, "It's really off and on. Today, Sue and I used it."

VanceS says, "It's only the second time I've found it working since it's been up."

MichaelAC exclaims, "Great record!"

Ying [guest] asks, "Today is Dad's Day in USA?"

JohnSte says, "Yes, and my wife just gave me my present."

VanceS says, "Yeah, my son sent me an e-card from California"

Ying [guest] says, "Ohhhh... Happy Dad's Day.. guys."

VanceS says, "I have to call my dad tonight"
