[11:09] Arielle Popstar: oh really
[11:09] Wizard Atazoth: well that's a good thing really
[11:09] Arielle Popstar: little cold for beaches though
[11:09] Arrwyll Barzane: some places have been a little slow to cooperate
[11:09] Azi Az: i dont have st patricks on my country so it doesnt say anything but we surely need our minds busy to dont think much :))))
[11:09] albertlr Landar: well took many younger people seem to think it will all go away, if they ignore it.
[11:10] Arrwyll Barzane: yes i seen that on tv - the beaches in Florida
[11:10] Danger Lytton: yeah - in florida - thats been a problem
[11:10] Arrwyll Barzane: full of kids
[11:10] Arielle Popstar: only old people dies from it so i guess they figure they are safe
[11:10] albertlr Landar: the just closed the beaches in Hilton Head, SC also.
[11:10] Ayesha Rasmuson is Offline
[11:11] albertlr Landar: that is not so.
[11:11] Danger Lytton: everything in my neighbor hood still running - but we are all armed with lysol cans
[11:11] Wizard Atazoth: it effects the very young too and those with health problems
[11:11] albertlr Landar: more elderly do, but also younger people can die for it too.
[11:11] Arielle Popstar: i did some research of regular flu's and seems a lot dies from it every year too
[11:12] albertlr Landar: we had to infections in our County so far.
[11:12] Arielle Popstar: i was amazed at the numbers
[11:12] albertlr Landar: but expect it to increase.
[11:12] Azi Az: this is not a flu virus
[11:12] Arielle Popstar: never hear about that
[11:12] albertlr Landar: its very easily passed on to others.
[11:12] Wizard Atazoth: non in my county either but im sure its just because they haven't done a lot of testing
[11:13] albertlr Landar: more tests the more will be discovered.
[11:13] Azi Az: this is a serious pneumonia virus and highly contagious
[11:13] Arrwyll Barzane: anyone else coming the os meeting , Albert?
[11:13] Danger Lytton: they are testing for first time in my county - finally got the kits
[11:13] albertlr Landar: unfortunately anti virus software has not affect on it.
[11:13] Danger Lytton: in a few days we will know if any are infected here
[11:13] Arielle Popstar: way i hearing it, the safeguards are not to prevent people from eventually catching it but to spread it out so as to not overtax the hospital facilities
[11:14] Arrwyll Barzane: like, are we expecting anyone?
[11:14] albertlr Landar: yea.
[11:14] albertlr Landar: local hospitals are restricting who can enter them.
[11:15] Arrwyll Barzane: i have nothing to do with my time but to watch the news on TV, day and night , unless i'm here - and im here for enjoyment
[11:15] Wizard Atazoth: well if they can spread it out and hopefully it will peak soon and numbers of infected fall off. then next year that vaccine will be here i hope. but yea its all a numbers game.
[11:15] albertlr Landar: yea, people have to get creative with their excess time these days.
[11:15] Arielle Popstar: prob is what it is doing to the economy
[11:16] Foxx Bode is Online
[11:16] albertlr Landar: that is going to be unavoidable I am afraid.
[11:17] albertlr Landar: They have let local restaurants stay open but with only allowing 50% of usual seating.
[11:17] Arrwyll Barzane: hello Foxx
[11:17] albertlr Landar: But I am feel they need to close them except for take out and pick ups
[11:17] Foxx Bode: -*- HeLlO-*-
[11:17] albertlr Landar: Hello Foxx how are you there in Europe.
[11:17] Arielle Popstar: will put some out of business
[11:17] Azi Az: Hi Foxx :)))))
[11:18] Arielle Popstar: except big franchises
[11:18] albertlr Landar: well fortunately the US gov. has issued extended unemployment for those people.
[11:18] Arielle Popstar: resterqaunt owners?
[11:18] Foxx Bode: Sometimes is handy to live in shit middle of nowhere :) im good.
[11:18] albertlr Landar: Next stimulus will supposedly help owners.
[11:18] Arrwyll Barzane: who ya feel sorrier for ? the ones who have to cloise their business to help protect the popluation , or those who contraxct the disease and potentially die?
[11:19] Arielle Popstar: how can one be in the middle of nowhere in the Netherlands?
[11:19] Arielle Popstar: well Arr, the ones that going to get it, are going to get it regardless
[11:19] Foxx Bode: i live in a very tiny village with loads of farms and nature around it.
[11:19] Arrwyll Barzane: really?
[11:20] Arielle Popstar: yes
[11:20] Arielle Popstar: they figure by the end of this, 80% of the worlds population will get it at some point
[11:20] Arrwyll Barzane: you're a cheery soul Arielle
[11:20] albertlr Landar: yea, hopefully by then there will be a vaccine or such.
[11:20] Arielle Popstar: all they are trying to do is flatten the bell curve
[11:21] Azi Az: Thats not a good thinking Arielle......we need to protect ourselves and others as much as we can
[11:21] Arrwyll Barzane: i think i need to be some other place right now...
[11:21] albertlr Landar: so that those that become very sick can be treated properly.
[11:21] Arielle Popstar: that doesn't mean that it will be any less, just spread out more
[11:21] Arrwyll Barzane: hope ya all stay safe in your lands
[11:21] albertlr Landar: well after this I am headed to KFC to pick up take outs.
[11:22] Arielle Popstar: kfc is good
[11:22] albertlr Landar: unfortunately these virus demands less human contact, but humans have a hard time avoiding that.
[11:23] Arielle Popstar: i been trying hard not to touch my face
[11:23] Arielle Popstar: thats a challenge!
[11:23] Arielle Popstar: never realized how often i do

[11:35] LaNani Sundara: ok
[11:35] Azi Az: lol
[11:35] Arielle Popstar: Hi Fu
[11:36] LaNani Sundara: hihi
[11:36] Fu Barr: Hey Ari, Hey all :)
[11:36] Wizard Atazoth: Greetings ^_^
[11:36] Fu Barr: did i miss much?
[11:36] Azi Az: Fu uuuuuuu :)))))))
[11:36] albertlr Landar: Hello Fu
[11:37] Arielle Popstar: and not missed anything osg related
[11:38] Arielle Popstar: just talking about eggs
[11:38] Azi Az: there will be egg contest again fu
[11:38] Fu Barr: okay - well in that respect... I hope to be sending Wiz and Azi stuff tomorrow sometime about the SLowbuild.
[11:38] Wizard Atazoth: we will put the egg out on the other plazas. anyone that wants to help put the word out by placing the base egg on their own region is welcome as well.
[11:38] Wizard Atazoth: oh cool Fu
[11:39] Fu Barr: Qiz and I discussed to maybe have the first one two weeks from now... 5th of April...
[11:39] Fu Barr: *Wiz
[11:39] Fu Barr: I'm sort of still thinking up some interesting-ish twist to the thing.
[11:39] Fu Barr: my current thing is to maybe make the slowbuilds potentially linked.
[11:40] Fu Barr: forgive the pun
[11:40] Fu Barr: basically the idea is to have slowbuilds connect, so you can keep adding/changing building the build as we go along.
[11:40] Wizard Atazoth: ah interesting
[11:40] LaNani Sundara: a long build
[11:41] Fu Barr: you can still build things per event each week, but you can also choose to do things on the same build... but continually refine/change/expand it
[11:41] Fu Barr: each 2 weeks - sorry
[11:41] albertlr Landar: like the tower of babel
[11:41] govega sachertorte is Online
[11:41] albertlr Landar: or that cathedral in Spain.
[11:41] Fu Barr: i guess. but basically it allows you to really evolve and 'work' a build.
[11:42] Fu Barr: or just go 'fuggit, i'm done and start new
[11:42] Fu Barr: but this is just still me in my head going round and round.
[11:42] Fu Barr: :)
[11:42] Fu Barr: might just go with the base 14 day build cycle, and basta,
[11:43] Fu Barr: fanks nani :)
[11:43] LaNani Sundara: just thought they'd look good on ya
[11:43] Fu Barr: aww - so sweet - thanks :)
[11:44] Fu Barr: either way i'll try and get my BTM in gear and get the textures/notecards to Wiz7Azi by sometime tomorrow
[11:44] Wizard Atazoth: awesome. should be interesting
[11:44] Fu Barr: hope so.
[11:44] Azi Az: brb
[11:46] albertlr Landar: ok
[11:47] albertlr Landar: Well I see where they say that dogs can neither get or give the virus.
[11:47] albertlr Landar: So maybe they need to take over more things in our lives.
[11:48] LaNani Sundara: get a dog before the shelters have to close and put them down
[11:48] Danger Lytton: great - a service dog that goes to work for me would be great
[11:48] albertlr Landar: they already do security work.
[11:48] albertlr Landar: my dog does that, he barks at anyone coming in the house.
[11:48] Danger Lytton: this one would have to drive a loader or a forklift
[11:49] Danger Lytton: and work on PC
[11:49] Danger Lytton: \and he could take over shaking the vendor drivers hands and giving them a farewell bark as they drive off
[11:49] Danger Lytton: i had to stop shaking everyones hands
[11:50] LaNani Sundara: stop shaking hands
[11:50] Fu Barr: but you're still barking at them as they leave *evil grin*
[11:50] Danger Lytton: hehe i do have to bark sometimes - but rarely
[11:50] Fu Barr: :))
[11:50] albertlr Landar: George Takei says to practice doing Mr. Spocks finger sign.
[11:51] Fu Barr wonders how that might help...
[11:51] albertlr Landar: you don't have to touch anyone to do that.
[11:51] Danger Lytton: no contact and a good thought fu
[11:51] Danger Lytton: live long and prosper
[11:52] Fu Barr: oh a sort of 'namaste' thing... sorry, i'm obviously getting slow on the uptake.
[11:52] LaNani Sundara: this feels like a support group meeting today.. so how is everyone coping?
[11:52] Fu Barr: well, I'm OK. I haven't had a drink now for 89 days... *grin*
[11:52] albertlr Landar: cabin fever is the greatest threat for most
[11:52] LaNani Sundara: you all in isolating?
[11:52] albertlr Landar: yea.
[11:52] Danger Lytton: i am in charge of keeping Dispatch office clean
[11:52] Danger Lytton: armed with a can of Lysol
[11:53] LaNani Sundara: *nods
[11:53] Fu Barr: I'm sort of doing the social isolation thing. not showing any symptoms - thank gd - so i;m not self-isolating in the strict sense.
[11:53] Fu Barr: it's me and my room and the new 21:9 monitor. oh and reruns of my fve korean drama on Netflix.
[11:54] LaNani Sundara: :)
[11:54] LaNani Sundara: Dr Kim Medicine Woman?
[11:54] Danger Lytton: azi says in portugal all the stores are full of supplies once again and no one in them
[11:55] OSgrid SignMesh2: Script running
[11:55] LaNani Sundara: i get everything delivered, even the corona virus
[11:55] Danger Lytton: all the panicked people got months of supplies now and can let the rest of us go shopping normally again
[11:55] LaNani Sundara: true
[11:55] albertlr Landar: well that is a bright sign.
[11:55] Danger Lytton: yes
[11:55] Danger Lytton: supply lines have never been in jeopardy
[11:55] Fu Barr: yeah. the insanity of shoppers here in the UK has been... well, insane.
[11:56] LaNani Sundara: pubs and restaurants are closed Gary said
[11:57] Danger Lytton: portuguese are being good and staying home - Spanish are still going out for tapas after work - so they have 10 times the cases
[11:57] Fu Barr: I just finished Strongest Delivery Man, and have seen Dr Romantic and Pinoccio again
[11:58] albertlr Landar: habits have to be changed for things to improve.
[11:58] Fu Barr: at some point ui may have to actually sleep again. *chuckle*
[11:58] LaNani Sundara: i could sleep now, this "cold" makes me tired
[11:59] albertlr Landar: ok
[12:00] LaNani Sundara: i am kinda hoping i have it if that makes sense, cos the "cold/flu" i have is mild in my case and once i've had it, i'm done with this stupid virus..
[12:00] albertlr Landar: well as its now 12 noon, must say thanks for coming again this week. Please stay safe everyone.
[12:00] Fu Barr: well, i'll hop back to RL or some more prim. Probably see you all tomorrow sometime again.
[12:00] LaNani Sundara: stay safe, be well
[12:01] albertlr Landar: Let me go brave the car lines at KFC for dinner.
[12:01] Fu Barr: tc y'all!
[12:01] albertlr Landar: Take care.
