Webheads chat logs from September 2, 2001

Meet the people in the chat today

Vance Maggi Michael Ying Lan Sue Susanne Arif
UAE Germany Australia Taiwan Japan Denmark Turkey

and Lian from Wuhan, China, BJB (lives in Reception at TappedIn), Venny (recently joined Webheads), Gulsen (Rif's friend), Christina (dropped by), and hi (said hi)

Find where everyone first joined the chat: Vance | Ying Lan | BJB | Lian | Maggi | Michael | Rif | Gulsen | Christina | hi | Susanne | Sue | Venny

It was another freewheeling, active, and experimental night with Webheads. I caught a glimpse of Ying Lan on Yahoo on my way to class and engaged her in voice chat before joining her and BJB at Tapped In, where Lian, Maggi, and Michael soon joined us in a discussion of expressions in English. Meanwhile I noticed Rif on ICQ and invited him along, and he in turn invited Gulsen, at which point we projected the URLs, with pictures, of the Webheads present. Christina dropped by and started a discussion on conferences and texts for CALL.

Michael was just inviting us to join him downloading (15 meg) and trying out a new chat environment he seemed to like from when I was dumped from Tapped In, and by the time I had clawed my way back in everyone else was either gone or going. The moment Maggi left, Susanne arrived followed shortly by Sue, who was connecting from Osaka on her way back home to Okayama after visiting her newborn neice in Kyoto. Sue and I tried voice chat, but with disappointing results (connectivity not so good tonight). By then Venny, our newest Webhead member, had joined us from Taiwan. He and Susanne started exploring the Webheads site and ended up in Homestead. It was getting late for me though, so I had to excuse myself in the middle, it seemed, of a thoroughly enjoyable chat.

yinglanliu: How to prouounce the word... hooker?

vance_stevens: prostitute

yinglanliu: did you hear my words?

vance_stevens: not clearly

yinglanliu: every word...

vance_stevens: I think you are telling me you will tell me when you know for sure

yinglanliu: I said... I have not made the decision of joining the conference

vance_stevens: Yes, I understood that

vance_stevens: so we can add you when you are sure

yinglanliu: You told me... it would be better when I am sure that I will be there.

vance_stevens: /mood Webhead

yinglanliu: I am always a lurker in Webheads.

<Ying Lan is at Tapped In talking to BJB. Follow Vance to there -->

yinglanliu: rhythem

vance_stevens: rhythm

yinglanliu: rhythm

yinglanliu: funny words?

yinglanliu: What do you think it is a funny word?

yinglanliu: y is not a vowel

vance_stevens: every English word has to have a vowel

yinglanliu: I see.

yinglanliu: rhythm

vance_stevens: usually it's a e i o or u

yinglanliu: yes

vance_stevens: This is kind of an exception, y is considered a vowel

yinglanliu: You know... I started to read phonic and pronuncation again.

yinglanliu: why?

yinglanliu: I lost you. ]

yinglanliu: ann? <Ying Lan has noticed that Lian has arrived at Tapped In>

yinglanliu: maggi. <Maggi has just arrived at Tapped In>

vance_stevens: Talking about why Maggi doesn't want to be a Yahoo member

vance_stevens: You mean we should put messages in the chat here

yinglanliu: I think... privacy is always aganist the security.

yinglanliu: If we don't need to leave our message on line, nobody could trace us. Someone get to chance to did bad things..

yinglanliu: But... they could use phoney, fake name...

yinglanliu: So... no comment.

yinglanliu: She is an honest lady.

vance_stevens: So Maggi should get a Yahoo acct with a fake name and false information?

vance_stevens: Why not. I think it's a good idea.

yinglanliu: Those fake things never come up to her mind.

yinglanliu: O.k. Where she is?

vance_stevens: She just creates a persona that is not so honest

yinglanliu: creates?

vance_stevens: But you are right.

yinglanliu: What are you talking about? She just creates a persona?

vance_stevens: You are very complimentary of Maggi. She will enjoy reading these logs

vance_stevens: To create a persona is to invent a character

yinglanliu: I just say my truely feeling ..

yinglanliu: what?

yinglanliu: We call .. word family.

vance_stevens: You're like Maggi in that respect

yinglanliu: Use the word family to remember word..

vance_stevens: word family: warrant and warranty

yinglanliu: It is a great way to learn English words.

yinglanliu: lie like fade / made / blade / grade / trade / parade

yinglanliu: I love this one..

yinglanliu: ant ... has antenna.

yinglanliu: The theory is not from Native speakrs...

yinglanliu: We call as " word family'.. they have some letters in those words.

yinglanliu: They edit.. and put them together .. to help no-native speaker to remember words.

yinglanliu: non-native

vance_stevens: it's a mnemonic

vance_stevens: do you know this word?

yinglanliu: no..

vance_stevens: something to help you remember something, like ant and antenna

yinglanliu: LianA is desire to learn some teaching skill from Maggi.

yinglanliu: I think .. it would be better to be a lurker.

yinglanliu: for me.

yinglanliu: I have been thinking how to use Libary in New York now.

vance_stevens: You can probably get on the Internet there

yinglanliu: Your wife..what?

yinglanliu: I just found the web site.

yinglanliu: where is she?

yinglanliu: queen's libary.. I probably will live there.

vance_stevens: My wife was talkng to me on msn messenger from home

yinglanliu: You don't like the place?

yinglanliu: It sounds a little weird.

yinglanliu: But there is a big park in the downtown... called Center Park.

yinglanliu: Central Park.

yinglanliu: They even has opera festival in summer time.

yinglanliu: have

yinglanliu: Vance.. I want to go.

VanceS [tidying_up] blinks, looks around ...

VanceS looks Webhead.

VanceS says, "Waves to BJB" <No response; Vance realizes he is alone in his office>

VanceS teleports to the reception.

Stopped recording in VanceS's Office (#12249) at Sun Sep 2 05:00:09 2001 PDT.

BJB [HelpDesk] waves good day to Vance

ying [guest] says, "Heloo..."

VanceS [Webhead] waves

ying [guest] says, "I just asked the word "lurking""

ying [guest] says, "to BJB."

ying [guest] says, "Hi, BJB"

VanceS says, "That's the second word Ying Lan has asked about today."

BJB [HelpDesk] blushes...I'm afraid the dictionary definition is a bit sinister

VanceS says, "We have about 50 members on our Webheads list, but only about a dozen are active."

BJB [HelpDesk] hopes that lurking online isn't taken as being sinister or evil

VanceS says, "The other 3 dozen are just LURKING"

VanceS says, "Ying Lan and I are already in the voice chat, BJ"

ying [guest] says, "Oh.. I se."

ying [guest] says, "But Vance can not hear my voice clearly."

BJB [HelpDesk] nods

VanceS says, "It's a little garbled, but I can understand it ok"

ying [guest] says, "Let me ask another question.."

VanceS says, "go ahead"

ying [guest] says, "out of the question ... or "out of question""

VanceS says, "out of the question"

ying [guest] says, "it is impossible or no problem."

VanceS says, "It means impossible"

ying [guest] says, "Really... That's really bother me."

VanceS asks, "That really bothers you?"

VanceS asks, "why?"

ann-command has connected.

BJB says, "good day, Lian"

VanceS exclaims, "Hi Lian!"

ann-command [guest] says, "good day, everyone."

ying [guest] says, "Because in my dictionary.. the edior says one is impossible , another is no problem."

VanceS [Webhead] jumps up and down and waves

ann-command [guest] says, "long time no see."

VanceS exclaims, "a whole week!"

ying [guest] says, "I heard someone said.. out of the question is no problem."

ann-command [guest] asks, "what is your topic today?"

ying [guest] says, "really bother me."

ying [guest] says, "what ever... just chatting."

ying [guest] says, "ask questions..."

VanceS says, "We're sort of talking about difficult expressions in English"

VanceS says, "Such as 'It's out of the question'"

ann-command [guest] asks, "bjb,I want to change my emailbox that I used for registration here for membershiip, can you help me?"

ann-command [guest] says, "my name here is lianA" <Ying Lan and Vance talk in the voice chat>

BJB [to Lian]: "you want to change your email address?"

BJB [HelpDesk] peruses Membership Directory...

ann-command [guest] says, "yes, I want to change it to"

BJB says, "done, Lian"

ann-command [guest] says, "thank you, bjb,"

BJB says, "you should get notification at both email addresses"

BJB [to Lian]: "why are you not logged in with your member name?"

ann-command [guest] says, "yes, soon."

You hear a quiet popping sound; SRI_21 [guest] has disconnected.

LianA arrives from nowhere.

LianA's personal recorder follows LianA to here.

BJB [HelpDesk] waves hello again to Lian

VanceS says, "welcome back"

LianA says, "bjb, thank you, I am here as a memeber,so i will receive my email in my latter address,right?s"

LianA says, "thank you vances."

BJB [HelpDesk] nods. right, Lian

VanceS says, "You can call me Vance"

VanceS [Webhead] bows

LianA says, "yes, thank you vance."

LianA says, "i want to ask the difference between guarantee and waraaenty."

LianA says, "warantee"

VanceS says, "Good question"

MargaretD arrives from nowhere.

MargaretD's personal recorder follows MargaretD to here.

BJB [HelpDesk] waves hi to Maggi

MargaretD says, "hi BJB"

VanceS says, "Hi Maggi"

LianA says, "warranty"

VanceS says, "Lian asked what's the difference between warranty and guarantee"

LianA asks, "can you tell me the difference between the two words guaranty and warranty?"

MargaretD asks, "me?"

VanceS says, "First, a warranty means that if I sell you something, if it breaks, I promise to repair it"

LianA asks, "how about guarrantee?"

VanceS says, "If I guarantee it, it means I promise it won't break"

VanceS says, "So, if it does, I'll replace it"

LianA asks, "12-month guarantee and 30-day money back guarantee,can we switch the two words?"

MargaretD says, "usually onlyfor a certain period of time"

LianA says, "yes."

MargaretD says, "only the first one"

MargaretD says, "Hi Ying..."

VanceS says, "I agree with maggi"

VanceS says, "A 12 month warranty and a 12 month guarantee are two different things though"

LianA asks, "what does only the first one mean?magaret?"

ying [guest] asks, "LianA?"

VanceS says, "A 12 month warranty means that during that time I will repair your item for free or possibly only repair certain parts"

MargaretD says, "the first guarantee can be replaced with warrenty not the second one"

ying [guest] says, "warrant is an order from judge." <Vance corrects Ying Lan in voice chat and we discuss word families and mnemonics>

VanceS says, "A 12 month guarantee means if it breaks in 12 months, bring it back and I'll give you a new one"

VanceS says, "A warrant is a different word. But you're right, Ying Lan"

LianA says, "if so, the company will be broken"

VanceS says, "go broke? Go bankrupt? (possibly)"

MargaretD says, "not necessarily"

LianA says, "for 12-month guarantee is too long a period."

MargaretD says, "depends what it is for"

LianA says, "nobody can assure a product won't be broke during one year."

LianA asks, "what if is computer?"

MargaretD says, "they usually have a 12 month guaratee"

VanceS asks, "a one day guarantee perhaps?"

LianA says, "I will teach my students business english, and the two words perplexed me for a long time."

MargaretD says, "I can imagine<"

LianA says, "thank you very much, you give me the anwer that i cannot find in the dictionary."

MargaretD says, "Land's End has a ifetime guarantee on it's stuff"

VanceS says, "Incidentally, Ying Lan and I are in voice chat at the moment, in case any one wants to join us."

LianA asks, "why, won't it go bandcrupt?"

MargaretD says, "lifetime"

VanceS says, "We're not making a big deal out of it this week"

LianA says, "i want to join your voice chat, but i don't know how."

LianA asks, "ying, what is your sex?"

MargaretD says, "statistics show most people won't use it and it guarantees the quality of their products"

VanceS says, "First you'd have to go onto Yahoo. Your id an_lian we already know, so we would then invite you."

LianA says, "you are interesting,margaret."

LianA says, "yes, wait."

LianA says, "margrat,your name is too long."

VanceS says, "If you'd like I can either /project or /show urls introducing people in this chat"

MargaretD says, "try Maggi"

MargaretD says, "or Mad"

LianA asks, "yes,mad,where are you now?"

ying [guest] says, "heloo.. maggi."

MargaretD says, "I am in Germany"

MargaretD says, "and teach Business English"

LianA asks, "germany?are you a germany?"

MargaretD says, "in companies"

LianA says, "yes, i will teach business english."

MargaretD says, "no I am American"

MargaretD asks, "where?"

LianA says, "I will teach in an american company in china budweiser beer company."

LianA asks, "do you know it?"

MargaretD says, "lol"

LianA asks, "1o1,what does it mean?"

VanceS says, "laugh out loud"

MargaretD says, "laughin out loued"

VanceS exclaims, "Maggi wonders how you get a job like that!"

LianA asks, "why you laugh out loud?"

LianA asks, "why cannot?"

VanceS exclaims, "Because you are lucky to teach in a beer company!"

MargaretD says, "that isn't what I wonder"

LianA says, "I teach in a university originally, but the students like me much, so they recommend me to teach in their company."

VanceS says, "(where we work, we can only drink coffee)"

LianA asks, "then ,mad why do you laugh?"

MargaretD says, "I think it is funny selling Bud in China"

LianA asks, "do you know bud?"

LianA asks, "why it is funny to sell bud in china?"

VanceS exclaims, "That too, especially since China has such great beer!"

LianA asks, "what do you mean?"

VanceS asks, "How would you rate Budweiser against beers of the world, BJB?"

MargaretD says, "Bud has to be one of the worst tasting beers"

LianA asks, "why?"

LianA asks, "do you hate bud?"

BJB says, "I think Budweiser is not rated very high in quality of beer."

VanceS says, "We Americans living overseas don't think much about American beers"

LianA says, "mad, i will teach the students about describing the product."

ying [guest] says, "Taiwan Beer is better than yours... some foreigner told me here."

MargaretD says, "good idea"

ying [guest] says, "foreigners."

LianA says, "so i will tell them guarantee and delivery and so on, can you give me some activities in the teaching."

MargaretD says, "even non alcoholic beer here tastes better"

BJB [HelpDesk] hopes we're not starting a beer war!

LianA asks, "what does "on-site maintennance contract only $50!" mean?"

ying [guest] says, "But Germany Beer is quite famous in the world.."

LianA asks, "can you tell me?"

BJB . o O ( and Lian has to meet the needs of her employer )

MargaretD says, "when you teach the the production process descriptions they can learn the passive form"

ying [guest] says, "I remember you have Beer festival .."

MargaretD says, "yes, in Munich"

LianA asks, "what does on-site maintenance contract only 50 mean?"

BJB [to Lian]: "on-site maintenance means that the product is repaired or maintained where it is"

Michael_C has connected.

LianA asks, "why there is a contract after maintenance?"

VanceS [Webhead] notices that BJB has not answered his question about her opinion of American beers

BJB . o O ( rather than the product being taken somewhere else to get it fixed )

Michael_C [guest] says, "Hi everyone."

MargaretD says, "it is standard practice"

BJB [HelpDesk] smirks at Vance and waves hi to Mike

LianA asks, "what do you mean,mad?"

VanceS says, "Hi MC"

MargaretD says, "when you sell a good product you maintain it afterwards"

VanceS exclaims, "Now we can really have a beer war!"

LianA asks, "why maintenance contract?"

MargaretD says, "usually for computers"

LianA says, "i cannot understand why we have contract cost $50."

BJB [to Lian]: "the company that offers the contract will only charge for the parts needed for repairs...and not the labor"

MargaretD says, "9or equipment of some sort"

BJB [to Lian]: "unless you read the fine print"

LianA asks, "so,it means once you buy the contract you will only pay for the parts thet is repaored?"

LianA asks, "what does fine print mena?"

LianA says, "mean"

BJB [HelpDesk] nods to Lian...if that is what is defined in the's important to read all the information in the contract

MargaretD says, "the labor costs"

BJB says, "fine print is all the information...usually printed in tiny type so it is hard to read"

LianA says, "thank you bjb, i love you, if you are here, i would kiss you, i hope you are a woman."

Michael_C [guest] says, "smiles"

BJB [HelpDesk] smiles. Yes, I am a woman, Lian.

MargaretD says, "and usually the most important part...tzhe fine print"

VanceS [Webhead] looks relieved

LianA says, "yes,thank you, i am a woman too."

VanceS asks, "would you guys like to see the webheads you are talking to?"

LianA asks, "vances, why you looked relieved?"

VanceS says, "I can project everyone's urls if you like"

BJB says, "I think Vance wants a kiss, Lian"

BJB [to VanceS]: "Please project"

LianA says, "yes,if she is a woman."

LianA asks, "how to project?"

MargaretD says, "it is a man"

VanceS says, "We joke a lot in Webheads, Lian. Hope you don't mind."

Michael_C [guest] says, "I'd like to see Lian's website"

LianA says, "i don't mind at all."

VanceS asks, "Is it ok with everyone if I project?"

Michael_C [guest] says, "Fine with me."

LianA says, "i am sorry i have no website."

VanceS says, "you type /project url"

BJB says, "when Vance projects a new window will pop open for you"

VanceS [Webhead] listens to bjb while searching for urls

BJB [to Michael]: "click on UPDATE in the top right of your screen"

rif [guest] asks, "Ddid you try e-portfolio for a course?"

Michael_C [guest] says, "OK. Got it BJB. Thanks"

ChristinaST [to Rif [guest]]: ""Is it a software?"

Rif [guest] [to ChristinaST]: "something that I develop on web. You are welcome if you would like to have a look at it, yet it is not complete"

ChristinaST [to Rif [guest]]: "Thank you, Rif"

VanceS says, "This session actually goes for two hours but people come and go all the time"

VanceS says, "We've been doing this for 3 years now"

rif [guest] says, "is anybody interested in TESOL Greece"

Michael_C [guest] says, "Yes - we're crazy."

MargaretD says, "speak for yourself mc...:-)"

Michael_C [guest] asks, "What do you mean by interested Rif? In attending? Presenting?"

Rif [guest] [to ChristinaST]: ""

Michael_C [guest] says, "OK Maggi - I'm crazy."

BJB [HelpDesk] shows ChristinaST the URL:

VanceS says, "Her'e the url I was looking for, should I 'show' it to you rif?"

rif [guest] says, "maybe both! I just received an email about invitation if you want I can forward you all"

VanceS says, "This one is an ongoing session that became a tapped in one recently"

MargaretD says, "I got it"

Michael_C [guest] says, "Yes Rif _ i'd like to see them...probab;y can't go though."

Rif [guest] [to ChristinaST]: "you will need a passwrd"

ChristinaST [to BJB]: "Thank you, BJ. I got the page and bookmarked it just now."

Michael_C [guest] says, "My email is"

VanceS asks, "Maggi I wonder if you got bumped last time because you closed your projection browser ??"

MargaretD says, "who knows Vance...and it was open"

ChristinaST [to Rif [guest]]: "Thank you, Rif. I will try later."

VanceS says, "ok, just remember being warned about it .."

VanceS says, "Nice meeting you ChristinaST"

ChristinaST says, "Thank you, Vance, and Rif. I will come back for the session next time."

ChristinaST waves to everyone as she steps out the door.

rif [guest] says, "bye.."

You hear a quiet popping sound; ChristinaST has disconnected.

VanceS says, "Maybe BJB can explain about closing the projection browser window ..."

rif [guest] asks, "Vance, are you a member of ICT4LT?"

MargaretD says, "I didn't close it Vance"

BJB says, "closing the projected browser window shouldn't hurt anything, Vance."

BJB says, "sometimes the receiving machine just can't handle the java happens"

VanceS asks, "oh, ok, thanks BJB, someone was warning us about a way to lose the connection?"

BJB says, "if you close the tapestry window you lose your connection"

BJB . o O ( that's this window )

VanceS says, "I'm thinking at a conference, maybe Keiko;s warning ... oh well"

VanceS says, "It would be in our logs; I'll check" <I checked and found the warning here (turns out it was a warning not to close the Tapestry window) -->

rif [guest] asks, "Vance, are you a member of ICT4LT?"

MargaretD says, "there are lots of ways to lose your connection"

Michael_C [guest] says, "Got the TESOL Greece info Rif - thanks."

BJB . o O ( sounds like a song title! )

rif [guest] says, "np"

VanceS says, "ICT4LT is a project ICT for Language Teachers"

rif [guest] asks, "so you are a part of it?"

VanceS says, "No, I didn't contribute to it"

MargaretD says, "lol"

VanceS [Webhead] wonders why Maggi is laughing this time

rif [guest] says, "It looks very modular-Very British like :-)"

MargaretD says, "at BJB 's suggestion Vance"

BJB says, "Maggia and I were passing notes in class, Vance...sorry."

VanceS says, "Graham Davies is the editor. I know him quite well. He's a Brit hippy"

VanceS [Webhead] throws eraser at BJB and Maggi

rif [guest] says, "Thanks Vance. I think this will of great help in my course."

VanceS says, "I mean that in a good sense about Graham"

rif [guest] says, "Maybe we should get working on writing a CALL textbook :-))LOL"

VanceS says, "Somewhere on his pages is a photo of Graham in a pub somewhere that has a web cam taking shots of people at the bar"

rif [guest] asks, "in Ireland?"

VanceS says, "It's a reknowned pub, but could be dangerous to be broadcast on the web in case you told your wife you'd be at the library or something"

rif [guest] says, "hehee... I see."

MargaretD asks, "why should someone be upset that you went to the pub?"

Michael_C [guest] says, "Before I go I want to tell you about some new software......"

Michael_C [guest] says, "If anyone is interested in trying out a great new piece of software that has chat, forums, instant messaging, audio chat, and shared file spaces - and it's free - try It's a big download (15 meg) but it's great and I'd like to try it with somebody. It's at"

MargaretD asks, "what kind mc?"

Michael_C [guest] asks, "Get the picture?"

MargaretD exclaims, "swhe sure is fast!"

MargaretD says, "I'llgo then...bye"

VanceS asks, "I tried to 'think' earlier. WHat's the command?"

SusanneN has arrived.

DiaLog follows SusanneN to here.

TimeLog follows SusanneN to here.

BJB [HelpDesk] waves bye to on the lyrics for our song, ok?

SusanneN exclaims, "Sorry I'm late!"

BJB [HelpDesk] hugs Susanne hi

VanceS says, "OK, Maggi, as usual thanks for faithfully coming along"

SusanneN says, "Too late ; I presume"

BJB [to VanceS]: "to think type /th blah blah"

SusanneN . o O ( bla bla )

VanceS says, "And Hi Susanne. Nice to see you."

SusanneN says, "Hi vance, dame here"

You hear a quiet popping sound; MargaretD has disconnected.

SusanneN says, "Same here. no more typos, promise :-)"

VanceS . o O ( a Dane? )

SusanneN says, "But sure, yes I am a Dane :-)"

SusanneN asks, "What did I miss today?"

VanceS says, "or did you mean Dame, which means a lady"

BJB [HelpDesk] waves bye and goes off to get breakfast and the laundry started

VanceS says, "Well, we keep the logs, so it will all be there"

SusanneN [beepme] grins like a dame, just hit the enter button too fast

BJB looks away.

SusanneN says, "I will stick to the log, then"

VanceS says, "Yeah, the usual chat. Interesting. Lots of people."

VanceS says, "Most of them wondering what we were doing here"

VanceS says, "We've been wondering that ourselves for a few years now"

VanceS asks, "But we're still here ??"

SusanneN says, "Vance, I am sorry if my last mail to the webheads was putting you in a special light. Was not meant to exclude the other excellent teachers."

VanceS says, "It was a NICE email. Thanks."

SusanneN smiles

VanceS says, "It's important to remember we're all greater than the sum of our parts."

SusanneN says, "I really do like the way this webhead community works, people seem to meet because they are friends, as wel as learners"

VanceS says, "I guess that's how it works. I like it myself."

SusanneN says, "I can see that."

VanceS says, "I guess we all like it or we wouldn't do it each week, week after week."

VanceS says, "and enjoy it, and keep coming bakc"

SusanneN says, "And, this is one of the best ways to learn a foreign language."

SusanneN says, "from simply doing it, because you like the people yyou are with, and you need to communicate."

SusanneN says, "Before I had the internet, I had no way to practise my English actively, so what I knew from the schooldays had almost gone"

VanceS says, "Thats nice to hear. I think that's the way to learn myself."

SusanneN says, "Now I feel it runs fluently, and I forget to wonder if I make some mistakes."

VanceS says, "You are fluent, but we can tell you are not a native, and therefore you fit in well in the community"

VanceS says, "In fact, if you look at your web page with us, you might notice that I've made some small corrections"

VanceS asks, "Did you notice?"

SusanneN asks, "No I do not think so , did you make some changes since the first setup?"

VanceS says, "When I publish student writing on the web I make corrections as needed. Then if the student wishes, he or she can compare the original with what it on the web"

VanceS says, "what is on the web (-ed)"

VanceS says, "In your case, I remember you used the term 'in the first run' and I changed that to 'in the first place' and something else the second time"

SusanneN says, "Good idea! I have just logged in and can now check If I can track the changes"

VanceS says, "There were two different expressions needed"

SusanneN says, "I see; I think this expression may not be the best."

VanceS asks, "which one?"

SusanneN asks, "The one I used, "in the first run" - I doubt now if you can even say so?"

VanceS says, "Let me have a look .."

SusanneN says, "I sometimes look up expressions I use, or that I cannot translate into Danish on the fly, but not as often than might be needed."

VanceS says, "Well, maybe Webheads can help with the last .009% of your fluency"

VanceS says, "The other one was 'at first glance'"

Sue has connected.

VanceS says, "I thought at first that ..."

VanceS says, "Hi Sue"

SusanneN listens to the teacher

VanceS asks, "Do you remember Sue, Susanne?"

Sue [guest] says, "hi, Vance, his SusanneN"

SusanneN says, "hello Sue! Welcome to Tapped In"

Sue [guest] says, "be surprised to notice there are few person here today"

VanceS says, "Sue is another Webhead. She's been in Kyoto and is now passing through Osaka on her way back to Okayama"

SusanneN says, "We met last week, I think you were in a voice chat."

VanceS says, "There were a lot of us here earlier."

SusanneN [to Sue [guest]]: "you and I are the latecomers."

Sue [guest] says, "yes, susanneN, i know your name"

VennyS has arrived.

Parrot follows VennyS to here.

VennyS [:)] bows gracefully.

VanceS says, "Sue is visiting newborn neices in Kyoto and Osaka"

VanceS says, "Hi Venny"

SusanneN says, "Hello Venny."

Sue [guest] says, "hi, Venny"

VennyS says, "Hello, Vance, webhead :)"

VanceS [Webhead] looks Webhead

SusanneN says, "Oh, and I have been visiting the newborn twins some days ago, they're growing better now."

VennyS [:)] bows to a new grandmom, Susanne:)

SusanneN looks webhead.

SusanneN says, "Venny, I enjoyed the photos of your daughters so much."

VanceS asks, "Venny, someone joined Webheads from Taiwan. Was it you?"

VanceS says, "I had a look at the photos too. The URL is in our logs."

VennyS [:)] grins at SusanneN [webhead].

VennyS [to SusanneN]: "Me, too :)"

SusanneN exclaims, "Aren't they just cute!"

Sue [guest] asks, "where are they? these photoes?"

VanceS says, "If you look at the end of our last chat logs where Venny joins the chat you will see the url"

VennyS [to VanceS]: "I just subscribe your webheads last week"

VanceS asks, "Ah HAH so it was you. Great. su@ etc etc?"

SusanneN says, "Great, then you'll have a webhead homepage as well."

VanceS says, "That's right. But first you have to send an introduction to the list"

VennyS [:)] nods to VanceS [Webhead].

VanceS says, "the email address for that is"

VennyS [:)] bows the the webhead master

VanceS says, "how about webhead facilitator"

VanceS . o O ( one of the facilitators )

VennyS says, "I download the webhead template, and hope to begin to work some pages soon"

VanceS says, "So what do you do Venny? You must be an educator"

VanceS . o O ( if you're at tapped in, must be in education ?? )

SusanneN [to Facilitator]: "Vance, I would like to hear a little more about how you edit those student homepages, as I do find the idea so excellent for getting familiar with what has already taken place in the group, and to imagine better who's who."

VanceS says, "The student home pages are all on my site, but any student is welcome and encouraged to make his/her own page, as you have"

SusanneN says, "I actually thought , like I think venny does, that the homepage editing was up to the students"

VanceS says, "and then we link to that page"

VanceS says, "Not many have made their own pages. But some have."

VanceS says, "I guess I make the portal and you guys can make the rest"

SusanneN says, "The hyperlinking is one great way of making the interconnections come easy."

VanceS says, "Yeah the idea is to make it a community where we meet in many different ways"

Sue [guest] says, "i still could not find venny's children's photo"

VennyS [:)] found his email account with some mail from efiwebheads

VanceS says, "Some come each week to the chats, some meet in email (like Venny is looking at right now)"

VanceS says, "Some do neither of those, but whatever interaction we've had with them is on their web pages"

VanceS says, "some do two of those, or all three"

VennyS [:)] shows Sue the URL:

VanceS says, "In sum, it forms a very viable community"

VanceS . o O ( thanks Venny )

VennyS [:)] bows to webhead master :)

VanceS [Webhead] humbly returns bow

Sue [guest] says, "thanks, very cute children."

SusanneN asks, "Vance, I have just been sent to Habanero from a link, are you identical with "Mr. Webhead Enslaved" ?"

VanceS says, "We've known Sue a little while now, enough to know she's a naval architect, Chinese, living in Japan, has sisters there who are having kids, and she want to go study English at Texas A&M University"

VanceS asks, "Mr what?"

SusanneN [webhead] grins at the enslaved one

VanceS looks enslaved.

VanceS asks, "how do I look?"

SusanneN says, "From your Homestead page, I chose the Writing for Webheads link."

VanceS says, "Actually, if you look up 'webhead' on the internet you get lots of hits unrelated to us"

SusanneN says, "Mr. WH Enslaved is a prisoner type, with a globe as a head and a foot link"

VanceS asks, "Is this from the homestead chat url?"

SusanneN says, "Yes"

SusanneN says, "This was the link URL :"

VanceS says, "that's not us"

SusanneN says, "I just clicked the Writing for Webheads link at the bottom of"

VanceS says, "We're not a dot com"

SusanneN says, "TYhat's why I was surprised, too"

SusanneN . o O ( you might like to change that URL :-) )

SusanneN says, "What I were looking for is just the quick way to find my Webhead classmates."

VanceS says, "I'm looking for it now"

VanceS exclaims, "ah, it's the netword!"

VanceS says, "now, this isn't us"

VanceS says, "no, I mean"

VanceS says, "long story about networds"

VennyS [:)] logged but nobody there?

<Vance joins Venny and Susanne in the Homestead chat. Follow us there -->

VanceS says, "networds used to be a good way to give people easy urls but they changed the system"

SusanneN says, "I see."

<Sue and Vance have meanwhile started a voice chat. Click here to see where Sue requested it.>

VanceS says, "sue, the voice chat is not working at all today"

VanceS says, "So that's why I prefer to chat here."

VanceS asks, "Sue, are you there?"

Sue [guest] says, "we can not find the microphone pluge to connect"

VennyS . o O ( voice chat? where? )

Sue [guest] says, "but i can hear you"

VanceS says, "We're at Yahoo Voice chat"

Sue [guest] says, "i am showing my sister how to use voice chat and she is interesting in this english class]"

Sue [guest] says, "how to subscribe it, i forgot"

Sue [guest] says, "yes, she saw your photo too["

VanceS says, "But guys, I think I have to go. My family is waiting for me at home."

SusanneN says, "Some day I will find a voice chat for older mac systems, as well as for windows."

VanceS says, "You can stay and be Webheads for a while."

VennyS . o O ( yahoo voice chat? where? )

VanceS says, "So all who are here, thanks for coming. And see you next week."

SusanneN says, "Yes, I was not at home at that time today :-)"

SusanneN exclaims, "See you all!"

VanceS says, "You can come at any time to any of our chat areas."

VanceS says, "The chats are all given at the top of our urls. And you get an email each week with locations."

SusanneN says, "That's so nice, I begin to feel a home by now in this connection."

VanceS says, "ok, talkign to sue now in Yahoo. She got it working."

VanceS says, "ok, I have to stop. See you later."

SusanneN says, "Great for Sue and her friend"
