Room: TI_Reception

 

TeresaD joined the room.

 

TeresaD: hello, everyone!

 

DennisOl: Monika: Yes and no. Much closer than Germany is (yes), but about a four-hour drive within Arizona (no).

 

DavidWe waves to Teresa

 

DavidWe: Hi, Teresa. Welcome

 

MonikaP: Hello. Theresa!

 

DavidWe: Bom Dia

 

TeresaD hugs dennis and david

 

MonikaP: Oh, sorry, Teresa!

 

DavidWe hugs Teresa

 

DennisOl: Scones with jalapeños—now that's a thought!

 

TeresaD: long time no see, david :-)

 

SusanRy: I have to ask about all these hugs

 

DennisOl hugs Teresa back

 

DennisOl: Beijinhos e abraços, Teresa!

 

DavidWe: Bagels with jalapeños in Santa Fe - I like those - actually green chiles

 

TeresaD: we're all very huggable people, monika

 

DavidWe: Well, if you know someone well, they get hugged

 

DavidWe smiles

 

DennisOl: Then how about scones with nopalitos?

 

SusanRy: I see

 

TeresaD: and we all love to hug one another

 

DavidWe: Tere, now that David Beckham is coming to the States - I won't be getting as much playing time on the soccer field

 

DennisOl: Definitely, Teresa!

 

DavidWe: He is a good bit younger than me

 

MonikaP: I feel really hungry - in Germany it is almost lunchtime - I would love to get a bagel.

 

DavidWe: Sounds interesting, Dennis, the scones with nopalitos

 

SusanWood: When do we graduate from being "newbies" and receive hugs? (I'd rather have a hug than a diploma)

 

TeresaD: poor you, david. we have to do sth about it ;-)

 

JohannaS hugs susan

 

DavidWe: Graduations should involve hugs from friends and family, Susan. Didn't get any?

 

SusanRy: thanks Johanna!

 

SusanWood smiles happily and hugs JohannaS back

 

TeresaD: susan, you can start hugging at once :-)

 

DavidWe: Us Americans are paying him a BIG sum of money to go to Los Angeles

 

DennisOl: Nopalitos come from the prickly pear cactus.

 

SusanRy: Thanks Teresa!

 

JohannaS: Hey, Susan we're hugger too now!!

 

SusanWood hugs all around

 

DavidWe agrees about the nopalitos

 

DavidWe: Just don't hug the nopalitos - prickly

 

MonikaP: brb

 

TeresaD: consider yourself graduated in hugs, susan :-)

 

DavidWe nods

 

TeresaD hugs susan back

 

MonikaP left the room.

 

JohannaS hugs everyone

 

DavidWe: Well, I think the training program is almost complete

 

SusanRy: Now that I have my hugs I need to get coffee but I'll be back

 

DavidWe: Good idea

 

StevenP joined the room.

 

DennisOl: Hi, Steven.

 

DavidWe may go out to get some coffee, actually - and pick up some real bagels

 

DavidWe: Hi, Steven. WElcome

 

TeresaD: hi steven

 

StevenP: Hello

 

MonikaP joined the room.

 

DavidWe: Let us know if you have questions

 

DennisOl: Welcome back, Monika.

 

DavidWe: Are you here for WebHeads, Steven?

 

MonikaP smiles

 

MonikaP: What is the time now in Arizona?? Must be very early in the morning??

 

StevenP: I am here for a virtual office

 

MariaVS joined the room.

 

DennisOl: Monika: Here's a link to a good map of Arizona. Phoenix (where I am) is in the south central section and the Grand Canyon is in the northwestern corner.

 

DavidWe: We had a birthday party with some quite nice (we tried a caterer) food for my Mom's 70th birthday

 

DennisOl: http://www.mapofarizona.net/

 

DavidWe: Had Beef Wellington, in fact

 

DavidWe: Hi, Maria. Welcome

 

DavidWe: Do you need some help with that, Steven?

 

TeresaD: it's 12:07 in lisbon

 

DennisOl: Hi, María!

 

TeresaD: hi maria

 

MariaVS: Hi everybody

 

DavidWe: 7:07 in Pennsylvania

 

MonikaP: Hi, Maria

 

DavidWe: Bienvenidos

 

MonikaP waves to Maria

 

MariaVS: Shall we go to Webheads office?

 

DavidWe smiles

 

JohannaS: All this talk about food. It's lunchtime here but I daren't take my eyes off teh screen.

 

MariaVS confused

 

StevenP left the room (signed off).

 

SusanWood: How do we go to the Webheads office?

 

TeresaD: we usually stay at the reception on sundays, maria

 

SusanWood: Where is it?

 

TeresaD: everybody finds us :-)

 

DavidWe: You new folks, do you know how to DETACH the chat in order to make it bigger?

 

MariaVS: ok

 

SusanWood: no...?

 

JohannaS: No David

 

MariaVS: My user name is Maria, but I'm Vicky from Argentina

 

DavidWe: See the ACTIONS menu?

 

DavidWe: Hi Vicky from Argentina

 

CherylO joined the room.

 

SusanRy: i can barely drink coffe and type simulataneously

 

MonikaP: Hi, Vicky

 

CherylO: brb

 

DavidWe: Click the Actions menu, scroll down to DETACH

 

DennisOl: Vicky: 'Sorry I got your name wrong!

 

DavidWe: THe chat window will become a separate window...you can then re-size it

 

SusanRy: Ahh David thanks for teaching how to detach.

 

DavidWe: I make mine as tall as the screen will allow

 

DavidWe: It allows you to SEE more of the conversation

 

MariaVS: Don't worry. No way to know!

 

DennisOl: Earlier I mentioned nopalitos. Here are some good photos. (The second and third are good.)

 

DennisOl: http://tinyurl.com/yu7wcu

 

DavidWe: Well, it's a part of the emotions - "detachment" - you know

 

DavidWe grins

 

SusanRy: this is MUCH better

 

DavidWe: Yes, it usually is

 

JohannaS: Oh thanks David that's loads better!:laughs

 

DavidWe: Indeed

 

MonikaP: I would love to see the "nopalitos".

 

SusanRy susanr smiles

 

DavidWe: Some amateur must have given you a tour, yesterday, I guess

 

DennisOl: Monika: http://tinyurl.com/yu7wcu

 

MariaVS laughs

 

SusanRy: Dennis do you create your own icon there?

 

DavidWe: So, this is an old joke (and many people cringe when I tell it again, but...) "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?"

 

DennisOl: Susan: No.

 

DennisOl: I mean, I personally haven't created one for myself.

 

JohannaS: Tell us david

 

MariaVS: It's a bit far from where I live!

 

DavidWe: oh, c'mon - take a stab at it?

 

DavidWe smiles

 

SusanRy: Icon, OK, I went to the site yesterday but got called away

 

DavidWe: You know what Carnegie Hall is?

 

DavidWe believes Andrew Carnegie was a "wee Scot"

 

DavidWe . o O ( Uh-oh, I've stunned the crowd )

 

SusanWood: to get to Carnegie Hall.... follow the chicken that is crossing the road?

 

SusanRy: Do you steel your way?

 

DavidWe . o O ( Practice! )

 

DavidWe: You will all feel more comfortable using Tapped In the more you use Tapped In

 

DennisOl: Carnegie Hall:

 

DennisOl: http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/medny/stevens.html

 

MonikaP: I saw the nopalitos. They look wonderful - sehr lecker!!

 

DavidWe: It may seem challenging (and too complicated), now, but it will get easier - trust us

 

JulieTh joined the room.

 

DavidWe: Hi, Julie. Welcome

 

DennisOl: Monika: They are. I make a salad with them. They're also good with eggs.

 

MonikaP: But - do you cook them before you can prepare a dish?

 

SusanWood left the room (signed off).

 

SusanWood joined the room.

 

DennisOl: Yes, Monika. They need to be steamed.

 

DavidWe . o O ( deep-fried? )

 

DavidWe: Let us know if you have questions, Julie.

 

SusanWood left the room (signed off).

 

MonikaP: aha

 

DennisOl: Deep fried? Hmmm. I've never had them that way.

 

DavidWe just wonders

 

MonikaP: We went to Mexico 10 years ago for mountaineering and we loved the mexican food.

 

DennisOl: Wex: What's the "thinking" code (for .oO)?

 

DavidWe . o O ( /th blah, blah, blah )

 

DavidWe: start with the /th

 

JohannaS: Is everyone here on the BaW course?

 

MonikaP lol

 

DavidWe smiles

 

MariaVS: I am

 

DennisOl . o O ( Wex is always helpful! )

 

TeresaD left the room (signed off).

 

 

Room: TI_Reception

 

TeresaD joined the room.

 

DavidWe: Welcome back, Tere

 

TeresaD: thanks, david

 

TeresaD: one click too many ;-)

 

JohannaS: Maria, are you finding the amount of mail rather overwhelming?

 

DennisOl: WB, Teresa!

 

DavidWe: So, were there storms in Portugal also, or only in northern Europe?

 

DennisOl: Here are some recipes using nopalitos:

 

DennisOl: http://tinyurl.com/2kb8kj

 

MonikaP: ?WB?

 

DennisOl: Johanna: I am, too.

 

MariaVS: welcome back

 

SusanWood joined the room.

 

TeresaD: no storms here, david. we're a very peaceful people ;-)

 

DennisOl: And I also find the amount of mail a bit of a challenge, Johanna!

 

MonikaP: Dennis, thank yu. But I have no idea where I could by nopalitos.

 

DavidWe: Pretty windy in northern Europe (England, France, Holland, Germany...)

 

DennisOl: I think it would probably be pretty hard to find nopalitos in Germany.

 

SusanWood: I have a question, DavidWe?

 

MonikaP: We had a bad storm - some demages on the house and in the garden.

 

DavidWe: What's up, Susan?

 

DavidWe nods to Moni

 

DavidWe: Pictures here were dramatic

 

DavidWe: Dennis, do you know that palm trees grow in Ireland?

 

DennisOl: No, I didn't know that, Wex.

 

DavidWe waits for Susan's question

 

SusanRy: Johanna, I've become a great email scanner, I ususally look for Teresa or Daf's correspondence and Dennis O. If i read those I feel like I know what is going on

 

SusanWood: Well, I tried to click on some of the links that you folks put into the chat (in blue) and my Firefox blocked them. At first I couldn't figure out why they didn't work, then I say the block notice: 3 applets. I tried to unblock and then managed to get totally lost and had to shut browser down. So my question is

 

DavidWe: some guy showed me pictures- I didn't believe him - but there they were - Gulf Stream, apparently

 

DennisOl: Very interesting!

 

SusanWood: How do you make the links work?

 

DavidWe: How to allow pop-ups from Firefox?

 

DavidWe: Couple of ways...have you detached the chat window, Susan?

 

DennisOl: BRB: I'm going to make some coffee.

 

SusanWood: Yes

 

DavidWe: Do you see a small red X in the lower corner of the web window of Firefox?

 

DavidWe . o O ( lower right, I believe )

 

DavidWe: You should be able to click on that and then choose from several options

 

JohannaS: Good idea SusanRy. But then that means you miss my pearl of wisdom!! (actually I never get time to post!)

 

TeresaD: my thank you, susan :-)

 

DavidWe: You want to ALLOW pop-ups from Tapped In

 

DavidWe: That way, when you click on a web site address (URL) you will get a new browser window with that address

 

SusanWood: No, but I use a No Scripts plug in and I have to allow Tapped In through. Is that my problem?

 

MonikaP: folks, I have to prepare lunch. No goulash today - but pork roast with dumplings - Schweinebraten und Semmeolknödel - I am sure you would like it.

 

SusanRy: I'll add you to my list Johanna

 

DavidWe: Firefox blocks that "action" of popping things up by default, Susan

 

MonikaP: Bye, have a very nice day and see you perhaps later.

 

DavidWe: Well, you want to allow popups from Tapped In - one way or another

 

DavidWe waves to Moni

 

DavidWe: Servus

 

MonikaP waves

 

MariaVS: Sorry but I will have to leave

 

SusanWood: Oh. I think that the box that you mean is now on top of hte screen and only appears when something is blocked. Can you put another link into this and I will try it?

 

DavidWe: You can also just open a new browser window, Susan, and type in the URL, but clicking on it is a nice feature

 

MonikaP: Servus and Pfüat Eich

 

MariaVS: Unexepected problem

 

DavidWe: certainly

 

SusanWood: I have set my scripts to allow Tapped In through

 

DavidWe . o O ( www.tappedin.org )

 

MariaVS: bur

 

MariaVS: Bye

 

DavidWe waves to Maria

 

DavidWe: Ciao

 

SusanRy: Thanks everyone and especially you David, talk to you next week.

 

MariaVS left the room (signed off).

 

DavidWe: Depending on how it is configured, Susan

 

SusanWood: Yes, box appears at top right of screen.

 

DavidWe: You're welcome, SusanRy

 

MonikaP left the room (signed off).

 

DavidWe: You may need to re-start the browser (logout/then log back in)

 

DavidWe: You may need to play with it a bit

 

DavidWe: I can't follow along precisely since I'm using a Mac right now

 

SusanRy left the room.

 

DavidWe: But Firefox works well (on Windows) in my experience

 

JohannaS: Dennis, do you have a way to cope with all the BaW traffic

 

DavidWe . o O ( delete it all? )

 

DavidWe smiles

 

DennisOl: Johanna: No, not really. I read all the messages and it takes a LOT of time!

 

DavidWe . o O ( Dennis is SO diligent )

 

DavidWe: Doing okay, Susan - making any progress?

 

JohannaS: A full time job, isn't it?

 

SusanWood smiles and thanks DavidWe...

 

DennisOl . o O ( Dennis is SO obsessive-compulsive! )

 

DavidWe smiles

 

DavidWe: Well, isn't that part of "diligence"?

 

DennisOl: Johanna: Yes, definitely!

 

DavidWe chuckles

 

DennisOl: Wex: I guess it is!

 

DavidWe: Anyone who is steaming their nopalitos...hey, I'm impressed

 

DavidWe: I just try not to stab myself with them

 

DennisOl chuckles along with Wex

 

DavidWe: Okay, now that Monika has left, I'm actually going to get some bagels, for real

 

DennisOl: Wex: You have to remove the spines before you cook them.

 

DavidWe: I shall return!

 

SusanWood: Yes, now little red x is at bottom of screen. I told it to allow everything through (in addition to the no scripts plug in). frankly I can't see any difference, but at least I wasn't booted off this time.

 

DennisOl: You'd better, Wex!

 

DavidWe knew there was a better technique for dealing with those spines

 

DavidWe: Yes, typically, when the pop-up blocker is active, Susan, you get knocked out of the chat as a result

 

DennisOl: Of course, I buy nopalitos de-spined—or even already cooked (i.e., in a jar).

 

DavidWe: Anyway, I hope it is working okay, now, Susan

 

SusanWood: thanks David!

 

DavidWe imagines in the southwest the nopalito industry is bigger than in Philadelphia

 

DavidWe: welcome, Susan

 

DavidWe: I'll be back in 30 minutes or so, folks

 

DavidWe: Off to get some bagels

 

DavidWe is afk

 

SusanWood: what is afk?

 

JohannaS: afk?

 

DavidWe: Was Vance and the rest (away from keyboard == afk) showing up?

 

DavidWe . o O ( be right back == brb )

 

DavidWe . o O ( ROTFL == Rolling on the floor, laughing )

 

DavidWe: There area thousands of those acronyms

 

DavidWe smiles

 

DavidWe: be back soon

 

JohannaS: IRAGTGMBN - Do you know that one David?

 

SusanWood looks puzzled

 

JohannaS: I Really Am Going To Get My Bagel Now.

 

SusanWood laughs

 

TeresaD: lol

 

DennisOl: Here's a link to some common chat-type acronyms:

 

DennisOl: http://www.netlingo.com/emailsh.cfm

 

TeresaD: how about hala's OAWAAW?

 

JohannaS: meaning?

 

DennisOl: Luvit, Teresa!

 

TeresaD: once a webhead, always a webhead!!!

 

JohannaS: you mean I'll never have a real life again?

 

TeresaD: when you look at it, it could be some sort of tarzan call ;-)

 

SusanWood: The linked worked this time! Hurray!

 

TeresaD: sure you will, johanna. we all do!!!

 

TeresaD: and many of us are meeting f2f in seattle in march for the tesol convention

 

DennisOl: Yes, it DOES look like a Tarzan call—or maybe the "song" of a love-sick donkey!

 

TeresaD: lol, dennin

 

TeresaD: dennis

 

DennisOl chuckles

 

JohannaS: i don't suppose anyone is going to be at teh IATEFL Learning Technologies SIG in Norwich, UK this February?

 

MoiraH joined the room.

 

DennisOl: It'd be wonderful to be there, Johanna, but I won't be able to.

 

MoiraH: Hi all!!

 

DennisOl: Hi, Moira!

 

SusanWood: Hi Moira!

 

DennisOl: Hugs!

 

TeresaD hugs "brit" moira ;-))

 

MoiraH hugs all tightly

 

MoiraH: Yes, teresa, all this hugging is not good for my image ;-)

 

JohannaS: I'm giving a workshop there (Norwich) about interactive whiteboards.

 

TeresaD: lol, moira!

 

JohannaS: Hi Moira

 

DennisOl: I wish I could see it, Johanna!

 

MoiraH: Hi Johanna :-))

 

SusanWood: Are we staying here (in reception)? I need to be afk for a couple of minutes but am afraid that you will all disappear to another room!

 

JohannaS: Send any ideas!

RickRo: It's about a distance education teacher training program that I ran for a few years

 

DennisOl: I've been to TESOL many times, but not in the past five years or so . . . and I won't be there this year.

OzerE . o O ( It is 14.56 pm in Turkey )

 

DennisOl: Hi, Ana!

 

OzerE: hooked "t" ?

 

AnaRiv: Hi Deniss

 

DennisOl: Banjo-pickin' Lee: Are you here?

 

DennisOl: Özer: Sorry. I was confused. That's a letter that Romanian uses, but not Turkish.

 

SusanWood: You can also set your keyboard for different languages, but then you have to know what has been assigned to each key. Right now, I'm using a Swedish keyboard to type on a laptop with an English keyboard that is switchable to Spanish and Estonian. I have to keep a paper printout handy in case of confusion! :-)
