StorySite Author Chat # 902-10-2001 6 pm EDST
Chat Log with Guest Author : Prudence Walker
ChatMom : Rose2
Log Secretary : Prudence Walker
This was scheduled as a chat with authoress Constance Grant but at the last minute Connie was unable to attend. She recently had a major surgical procedure and our prayers are with her. Prudence stepped in at literally the last minute and did a wonderful job, in spite of the rowdy crowd that we had. In addition to being the guest author, she also acted as log secretary. Prue can do it all. I have done minor editing on the log to correct some spelling errors, and remove some extraneous data. - Crystal
The log starts while the room was waiting for the chat to officially begin.

[Crystal.] Sorry, Kim. I don't know what I can do. It seems to be mostly happening to you though.
[ChatRoseMom] ah Kim that's not lady like (ducks for cover) but accurate
[Crystal.] I wish that I had that ability, Prue
[Kim_EM.........] I don't think NBCi's flavor of Java is very compatible with Linux... I'd bet it uses MS extensions that don't work right anywhere else
[Crystal.] Anyone else here using Linux?
[JennyJ..] (I understood about 5 f***ing percent of that, Kim)
[josie-2] not I

JennyJ..] Go on, Prue.
[Kim_EM.........] it's possible, but when I installed Linux I ripped Windoze out by the roots.. if I get a laptop, I may set it up as a dual boot, though
[JeanRea] till the 21st josie :)
[Kim_EM.........] most of the authors I know who use Linux don't come here because of their problems with parachat...
PRUE.> i couldn't have done this without the support of my friends who encouraged me and helped me and proofed for me

[JennyJ..] I got a name for the glossary earlier.
[JeanRea] I like to talk to someone (they don't have to be real) when I write, just watching their reactions helps me do a better job
[JennyJ..] Gonna call it The Britionary
Crystal.] Why not the Cockinary
[JennyJ..] Gotta figure a way to incorporate the odd Aussie term in the sub title, but I'm working on my supply of puns at the moment, lol
JennyJ..] Hmmmmm .... I'm thinking now.
[JennyJ..] Watch out everybody!!!!!

[JennyJ..] OH bugger it! It's gone for the moment (bangs head on keyboard) bdbdbkdkdfg
[Crystal.] With all your talk of police in the Britionary, I was surprised that you didn't include the 'Lady from Bristol'
JennyJ..] Lady from Bristol?
[JeanRea] she was a pistol?
[Crystal.] Cockney for pistol
[JennyJ..] Ah (makes note for another addition)

[Crystal.] That one I hadn't heard
[josie-2] Bristols means boobs.... live and learn
[JeanRea] looks down and says "hi girls :)"
[JennyJ..] Believe it or not, I've already got another twenty odd additions since I sent you that copy, Crys.
Crystal.] It'll be growing for sometime
