KK Chat - Aug. 5, 2007
« on: August 06, 2007, 07:24:06 pm »
[18:27] * KK has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[18:27] <DeryniBot> Samuel welcomes KK to the chat with a bottle of
mead.
[18:27] * DeryniBot sets mode: +o KK
[18:27] <the_Bee> hello KK!
[18:28] <KK> Well, I had to come through the back door, but I made it!
[18:28] <the_Bee> what happened to your front door?
[18:29] <Mistyck> hiyas KK
[18:29] <Mistyck> welcome
[18:29] <KK> That's the icon that lives on my desktop.  But Bynw tells
me that this no longer works--and, indeed, it doesn't.  So I came via
the Deryni Destinations site.  Fortunately, somebody changed the
directions there.
[18:29] <Mistyck> it needs the same patch I needed Bee :)
[18:29] <Bynw> Hi KK, we will get you fixed up though
[18:30] <KK> And of course, this screen looks ENTIRELY different from
what I used to get.  Mostly white with a blue column down the right
side--though not, thank God, the dreaded blue screen!
[18:31] <KK> I think this is a Java applet? she said, using
terminology that she understands not at all.....
[18:31] <Mistyck> how was the con last week?
[18:31] <Mistyck> yes it is KK
[18:31] <Mistyck> that's how I had to come in also
[18:32] <Mistyck> until I got instructions to add to mIRC
[18:32] <Bynw> yes thats a java applet KK
[18:32] <KK> Excellent con!  David Weber is amazing, and has invited
me to do a story in his Honorverse for the next Honorverse
anthology.  :-)
[18:32] <the_Bee> Honorverse?
[18:32] <KK> Also met some other amazing people, and reconnected with
old friends.
[18:33] <Mistyck> cool KK!
[18:33] <KK> The world of Honor Harrington--female Hornblower in
space.  Amazing military SF.
[18:34] <the_Bee> ah.  I'll have to check it out
[18:34] <KK> (Hmmm, I think I'll have to retire the word amazing for a
while--but it was apt, in this instance.)
[18:34] <Mistyck> hehe :)
[18:34] <Mistyck> if it fits, gotta use it
[18:35] <Bynw> oohhhh SciFi ... will we see the return of our heroes
from the Lehr book???
[18:35] <Mistyck> KK, there's a few of us mulling the idea of having
DeryniCon on Columbus Day...what say you?
[18:36] <Mistyck> not this year, but in 2008
[18:36] <Mistyck> and years thereafter
[18:36] <KK> No, it will be something from David's Honorverse--the
world of Honor Harrington--maybe something to do with treecats, which
are ... amazing six-legged catlike critters that are telempathic, and
maybe telepathic.
[18:38] <KK> Apart from the fact that the Columbus Day weekend is
usually occupied by other cons as well, it sounds fine to me.  People
will just have to make choices.  The August dates that are being
discussed probably would also be ok.
[18:38] <the_Bee> Do you know of any specific columbus weekend cons?
[18:38] <RainbowDragon> Greetings KK!
[18:39] <Mistyck> good.  Yeah, no matter what date we pick, *someone*
is going to have to make choices between the con and other stuff
[18:39] <the_Bee> almost any 3-day weekend is apt to have a con
attached
[18:39] <RainbowDragon> Sorry for the belated greetings... was working
on a project for a friend
[18:39] <KK> No, but I've been out of the con loop in any major way
for the past 20 years, so I wouldn't know.  But you could check Locus;
they always list upcoming cons, and I believe that information is
available on line.
[18:40] <KK> Hi, RD.
[18:40] <the_Bee> Locus.  do you have a URL?
[18:40] <KK> Needless to say, if a Derynicon is put together, that
gets <my> priority.  :-)
[18:40] <Mistyck> :) hehe
[18:41] <the_Bee> ;oD
[18:41] <KK> Just google Locus Magazine.  It's the top SF and fantasy
magazine.
[18:41] <Mistyck> well, we wouldn't want it to be during a time you
normally do other stuff such as Darkover
[18:41] <Mistyck> or GenCon for Ann
[18:42] <KK> Well, no, but then, you wouldn't ace out Darkover anyway,
now would you?  That's about my only fixture for the year--though we
do intend to begin attending more cons, now that we're back in the US.
[18:42] <Mistyck> nope
[18:42] <Mistyck> we would'nt even try.  That's why early and mid
December went out of the window
[18:42] <Mistyck> most of us wouldn't be able to attend both cons
[18:42] <the_Bee> I imagine Ann would do Arisia. that's MLK day
[18:43] <KK> Yeah, December is pretty much a dead month for cons.
Most people have family obs of various sorts; just too busy.
[18:43] <KK> Arisia is a good con; I'd like to return from time to
time.
[18:43] <Mistyck> so that's another one that's out.  Too many people
like to go to it
[18:44] <Mistyck> same for GenCon
[18:44] <the_Bee> I went to Arisia when you were GOH. bad weather
[18:44] <KK> Oh, and Scott and I will be guests at 2008 Dragoncon, so
you can put that on your calendar.  Atlanta in August is not a happy
thought, but it's a good con.
[18:45] <Samuel> Atlanta in August is why God invented
Airconditioning.
[18:45] <Mistyck> cool!  I will definitely be able to attend as I
should be on job hunting leave or terminal leave
[18:45] <Mistyck> what date is that?
[18:45] <Kelric> oh hi all.
[18:45] <Mistyck> wb Kelric
[18:45] <KK> I am also a guest at Between the Worlds this year, Nov.
8-11 in Wilmington, DE.  But it only happens occasionally, about every
4-5 years.  An esoteric conference.
[18:46] <Kelric> ahh,  you're doing a honorverse shortie?  cool
[18:46] <Mistyck> ahh.  Sadly, I won't be able to attend that as it's
too close to Darkover
[18:46] <Kelric> is darkover still a regular fixture for this year?
[18:47] <KK> Sometime in August; don't yet have it on my calendar.
(Only recently FOUND my calendar!)
[18:47] <Kelric> I will most likely actually be able to pull it this
year :P
[18:47] <Mistyck> I have a friend who's a guest at World Fantasy in
early November and I can't go to it either.
[18:47] <Mistyck> ah, no problem
[18:48] <KK> When and where, World Fantasy?
[18:48] <Mistyck> it's in northern NY state and I think early
November.  Hang on, she's online I'll ask her
[18:48] <Bynw> Katherine. You've got mail :-)
[18:49] <KK> I haven't gone to that since it was in London, and I was
asked to expand the gargoyle story into a novel.  That was a good con!
[18:51] <Mistyck> ok, it's 2-4 November, in Saratoga Springs, NY, and
my friend is a forensic fantasy writer.  Tamara Siler Jones
[18:51] <Mistyck> and she says Hello :-)
[18:52] <Bynw> Katherine. You should put these dates on www.rhemuthcastle.com
so everyone can see what cons you will be at :-)
[18:53] <KK> Yeah, I know.  Just haven't had time to visit that site
recently.  This past week, once we got back from Libertycon, we were
wound up with assembling info for the police.  We were burgled big-
time, right after we left for TN.
[18:54] <Mistyck> ugh KK..
[18:54] <Mistyck> :(
[18:54] <Bynw> ack!
[18:54] <the_Bee> Ouch!
[18:54] <Samuel> ACK!
[18:54] <RainbowDragon> did they steal much stuff?
[18:55] <KK> At least they didn't vandalize and trash the place, or
slaughter the critters.  It could have been far worse.  And we hadn't
yet picked up the new laptops.
[18:55] <Kelric> ouch
[18:55] <KK> Yeah.  They knew exactly what they were looking for: gold
jewelry and silver flatware.
[18:55] <the_Bee> glad you can look on the bright side
[18:55] <Mistyck> ugh
[18:56] <Mistyck> maybe then it's someone who has been there as a
worker before?
[18:56] <KK> Doesn't do any good to brood on it.  It's done.  But the
perps picked up a whole lot of baaaad karma along with their physical
loot.
[18:56] <KK> Could be.  Police will investigate that angle.
[18:56] <Mistyck> yeah
[18:57] <Mistyck> it does sound like someone who was familiar with the
critters and knew what to take though
[18:57] <KK> Don't know that they knew specifically what they were
looking for--and Oswald would be pretty friendly if a sandwich was
offered.  And the cats just would have hidden.
[18:58] <Mistyck> maybe just amatuers looking to take something they
can put in back packs?
[18:58] <Mistyck> it's probably at the local pawn shop by now
[18:58] <Mistyck> and I'm sure the cops will look at those first
[18:58] <KK> No, not amateurs.  Definitely not amateurs.
[18:59] <Mistyck> ah ok
[18:59] <the_Bee> amateurs would have left a bigger mess?
[18:59] <Bynw> amateurs would take it to a local pawn shop but pros
wont since those are the first places cops go
[18:59] <KK> The jewelry was mostly pretty distinctive, European, a
lot of custom-work. If it turns up in pawn shops, it's likely to be
noted.
[19:00] <the_Bee> any family heirlooms, I hope not?
[19:00] * KIK has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[19:00] <DeryniBot> Hi there KIK! Welcome to the chat.
[19:01] <Mistyck> got the mIRC working?
[19:01] <Mistyck> WB KK
[19:01] <KIK> Yep.
[19:01] <the_Bee> Hi KIK. we have 2 or you?
[19:01] <RainbowDragon> I'm sure you prefer the mIRC version better,
right?
[19:01] * Bynw sets mode: +o KIK
[19:02] <KIK> Yep.
[19:02] <KIK> One heirloom, Bee.  But the most important one was on my
hand, thank goodness.
[19:03] <the_Bee> :)
[19:03] <Mistyck> hope the cops can find the stuff KK
[19:03] <Kelric> yeah.  it must be rough
[19:03] <Bynw> you can just close the browser window there Katherine
and your duplicate will go away shortly
[19:03] <KIK> We're not holding our breaths--but it could happen.
[19:04] <the_Bee> which one of you is the evil twin?
[19:04] <KIK> Well, I closed the applet.  But I'm not sure how to get
my sig back here.
[19:05] <KIK> At least you know they're both me.  :-)
[19:05] <Mistyck> hehe true
[19:05] <Mistyck> once the "ghost" disappears, do /nick KK.  Then do /
msg nickserv identify <password>
[19:05] * KK Quit ([thulcandra.otherworlders.org] Local kill by Bynw
(user requested))
[19:05] * KK has left IRC
[19:06] * KIK is now known as KK
[19:06] * Temprus has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[19:06] <DeryniBot> The smell from Wrengl's kitchen draws Temprus into
the chat.
[19:06] <Mistyck> hiyas Temp
[19:06] <the_Bee> hi temprus
[19:06] <Temprus> Hi all
[19:07] <KK> Bynw, I have no idea what my password was in this
site....
[19:08] * jemler  has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[19:08] <DeryniBot>  Hi there jemler! Welcome to the chat.
[19:08] <jemler> hi guys
[19:08] <the_Bee> hi jemler!
[19:09] <jemler> had a nice time getting on, mirc wouldn't connect!
[19:09] <jemler> heard about marnin. :(
[19:09] <KK> Welcome to the club.  Bynw is going to tell us how to fix
things, right, Bynw?
[19:10] <jemler> i went thru otherworlders website. when i tried to
get in, it reset mirc for me!
[19:11] <the_Bee> my mirc is okay so far, even if refuses to believe
i'm already registered--twice
[19:13] <Bynw> Yes
[19:13] <KK> I have no idea how I'd get back here again.
[19:14] <Bynw> on mIRC, click on the Options button (looks like a
hammer and file folder)
[19:14] <KK> I'm going to have to call Bynw and have him talk me
through setting up a new shortcut.
[19:15] <Bynw> I will post some instructions for others :-)
[19:15] <KK> OK, I got that screen, but had to close it to type this.
[19:15] <Bynw> thats OK ... let me type everything up and then flood
the channel with it
[19:16] <the_Bee> thnks, bynw.  where willthey be posted?
rhemuthcastle.com?
[19:16] <KK> Sounds like a plan.  (This is all to improve things,
right?)
[19:16] * jemler prepares a raft for bynw's flood
[19:16] <Bynw> yes
[19:16] * the_Bee starts loading her ark
[19:17] * Samuel attempts to disengage the "auto-kick-for-flood"
program he has running :)
[19:18] <jemler> bee, load the rabbits last, or you won't have room
for anything else! :)
[19:18] <the_Bee> lol
[19:18] <Samuel> make sure you have to right number of each critter.
[19:19] * Mistyck stands at top of the mountain and watches everyone
run around as they try to prepare for the flood
[19:19] <KK> Well, I'm going to have to shove off for tonight.  Dinner
calls, as does my spouse.
[19:19] <Mistyck> have a great night KK and thanks for stopping by
[19:19] <RainbowDragon> Thanks for popping in!
[19:19] <KK> Seen you next week, provided I can get connected--but
Bynw will see to that.  :-)
[19:19] <RainbowDragon> oh, I'm sure of that  :-)
[19:19] <the_Bee> depending which bible verse you believe, it's 2 of
everything or 7 kosher and 2 nonkosher
[19:19] <Mistyck> take care and have a good week and hope the cops get
your stuff back and put the crooks in jail
[19:20] <the_Bee> bye kk
[19:20] <KK> From your mouth to God's ears....
[19:20] <jemler> nite kk,
[19:20] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in
a shower of green sparkles.
[19:20] <Mistyck> nite KK
[19:20] <Temprus> Bye kk
[19:20] * KK Quit (Quit: )
[19:20] * KK has left IRC
