[10:04:34] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Malli :)
[10:04:39] Malli (MallinaMermaid): Hey, everybody!
[10:04:39] Miranda Barrowstone: Because we usually have good attendance � please take a moment to remove all extra attachments and HUDS.  We�d like you to dress low lag.  Big poofy hair and jewelry are big culprits, as are bubbles, script things, HUDS, and such.  If we all cooperate, more merfolk can participate with less crashing.  Thank you for your help with this.
[10:04:50] Celtic Infinity: Tala, Bernice :)
[10:04:52] Marion698: tala Magical
[10:05:00] Marion698: and Bernice:)
[10:05:05] Miranda Barrowstone: People seem to arrive late and depart early.  Please don�t be offended but as leader I will try to keep the meeting going.  We don�t repeat things for latecomers � a log is posted on our blog after the meeting.  This is not a place for public debate � this is a helpful place.  Mer helping mer be mer!
[10:05:33] Miranda Barrowstone: To get all the information out there in our limited time � we use an imaginary talking stick.  Ask for it in IM when you have a new topic to introduce and I�ll call on you in turn.  If you have been passed the talking stick, please move to center stage and share a brief announcement/question/topic.
[10:05:37] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): we could try to have all the democrat president candidates come for a debate
[10:05:40] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): bad Gracie
[10:06:02] Miranda Barrowstone: Some discussion is great � but please quickly offer to give a notecard or landmark if people will IM you (that�s why we ask you to move to center) so that others will have a turn. When you have finished please pass the imaginary talking stick back to me.
[10:06:29] Miranda Barrowstone holds her tongue on politics
[10:06:44] Miranda Barrowstone: Our priority here is helping newer mers � so please if you are new and with questions � please feel free to speak up.  I do lead strongly because otherwise we tend to move to chaos � but we all try to remember the priority � mer helping mer be mer.
[10:07:02] Miranda Barrowstone: so how was your week merfolk?

[10:38:55] Celtic Infinity claps for Grace
[10:39:09] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so I can see somethings - but experiencing incredible lag and very confusing issues in world
[10:39:32] Mermaid Guardian (mermaidGuardian): ((that's why I lowered my draw distance to lower my lag))
[10:39:38] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium): awww
[10:39:53] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I have to remain patient - in 4 weeks supposedly they will start
[10:40:18] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so I'm cautiously optomistic
[10:40:31] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I can't tell people when I see something wrong for instance
[10:40:40] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): because most likely it is *MY* network
[10:40:52] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): does everyone know how to see the lag meter in Firestorm?
[10:41:21] Miranda Barrowstone: its that red thingy right?
[10:41:27] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): there are several places but it tells you where the lag i s being caused
[10:41:44] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): lights are green if good/normal  and red when there is a problem
[10:42:11] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): in firestorm use the advanced tab>performance tools>lag meter
[10:42:16] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and it will popup
[10:42:32] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): anyway - assume I'm partially blind for the rest of July
[10:42:52] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): secondly - we've had a vision about a SWF Concierge team
[10:42:59] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and it has started forming
[10:43:16] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): this is the vision as I'm starting it:  Tribe of Mermaids, Mermen, Merfurs and Sea Creatures who are familiar with the goals and guidelines of Safe Waters Foundation.  We support and welcome people to all things water related.including.boat shows, mer events, parties, scuba and docks with water access.around SWF areas.  Duties may also include outreach and coordination as approved.

Hours are on a drop-in basis so you have maximum flexibility.
[10:43:46] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): you can easily become a concierge trainee by contacting me
[10:44:04] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and going through our training class - you at some point will become a full blown Concierge
[10:44:08] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and have that title
[10:44:10] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): drop in hours
[10:44:20] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I know many like to schedule and you can do that as you wish
[10:44:31] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and well concierges will just have more training
[10:44:48] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): many of our concierges didn't need the training really but did it so we are all on same page initially
[10:45:05] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium) nods
[10:45:17] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): Mermaid Guardian, Cynthia, Miranda and Cheryl are some of our concierges
[10:45:26] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): they are not mentors, they are not the police
[10:45:31] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): they have no special powers
[10:45:44] Mermaid Guardian (mermaidGuardian): neighborhood watch
[10:45:46] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): they like helping and know how to help SWF style
[10:45:56] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium): except our dazzling good looks lol
[10:46:06] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): Greeters?
[10:46:14] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): could call them greeters
[10:46:18] Miranda Barrowstone: and our hypnotic singing voices
[10:46:19] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): but is more than that
[10:46:27] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium): indeed Miranda
[10:46:28] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): ever met a concierge at a hotel?
[10:46:57] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): they don't necessarily book your tour of the city - but put you in contact with someone who organizes tours (if they can)
[10:47:00] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): haven't been to a hotel in a LONG time
[10:47:10] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): they are real knowledgeable about resources
[10:47:24] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): ?
[10:47:36] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and if you have resources they should know about - send to me - I'm publishing Grace Notes to concierges
[10:47:37] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium): <--financially challenged, no hotels for me
[10:48:03] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and we'll do additional trainings - like how to report to LL Labs when see violations of TOS
[10:48:09] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): without being the police
[10:48:20] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): some are so funny
[10:48:29] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): but I come in on such weird hours - nobody is around
[10:48:38] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): THAT is exactly when we need a concierge at SWF
[10:48:40] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall) knows the feeling
[10:48:57] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): hours are voluntary and drop in
[10:49:13] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): we'll see how it works - I'll present a more polished version to the leadership team for approval
[10:49:34] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): but you know I love our helpers - thought I'd start with some structure - most are from concierges at the SLBD booth
[10:49:44] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): any questions about the concierges?
[10:49:55] Peaches2U Camino: nope
[10:50:04] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): Peaches is a concierge I think
[10:50:11] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): we need to check on that Peaches
[10:50:16] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium): not right now, looking forward to more when you have it though.
[10:50:19] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): <-----------old timers disease
[10:50:21] Peaches2U Camino: i never hold more than two groups for a land
[10:50:29] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): giggle
[10:50:33] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): but I'm not a land
[10:50:45] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): bad Gracie - don't twist tails
[10:50:50] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium): land shark mer?

[10:51:12] Miranda Barrowstone taps her wrist and mouths a reminder
[10:51:22] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I also have my SWAT team
[10:51:31] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): if anyone is interested and has room for a grup
[10:51:43] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): it is generally temporary (the group stays, members come and go)
[10:51:44] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium): ooh, do they get machine guns?
[10:51:49] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): no well
[10:51:54] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): SWAT like with tail
[10:52:00] Magical Mystery TOOO (TOOO Fall): no fly swatters?
[10:52:09] Cheryl Denise (CJ Tyrellium): i have a gesture for that :)
[10:52:12] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): it is my personal place to cry out for help
[10:52:23] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): if a new project comes up suddenly
[10:52:33] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): and you know I sometimes go on short notice
[10:52:36] Miranda Barrowstone: any other questions?
[10:52:43] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): I ask in my SWAT team if anyone wants to volunteer
[10:52:59] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth): so if you want to be in that group and have room - takes tolerance for my requests for help
[10:53:05] Graceful Mermaid (GraceSWF Wrigglesworth) hands the stick back to Miranda
[10:53:11] Miranda Barrowstone: ~~~Persu Em~~~

[10:56:54] washashore (ferretman): hear acid is
[10:57:07] Celtic Infinity: I think of baggy pants and tight tops and lots of florescence.
[10:57:14] Miss Jj (Jj Yowahoshi): my current av is a raver style called junglist.. because i listen to jungle/drum & bass music, and camo has become an iconic style item for that genre
[10:57:24] Miss Jj (Jj Yowahoshi): celtic, that can sure be part of it
[10:57:33] Celtic Infinity mumbles "oonst oonst oonst"
[10:57:36] Miss Jj (Jj Yowahoshi): lol
