(12/28 00:31:58) Hitana: lol
(12/28 00:32:00) Nick White: Future stuff.
(12/28 00:32:09) Nick White: Kodama is early phase work so he gets there early.
(12/28 00:32:10) Arthur Kalnins starts to laugh
(12/28 00:32:10) Arthur Kalnins: That's pretty broad :P
(12/28 00:32:27) Nick White: What do you want to know?
(12/28 00:32:35) Hitana: someone else here for swn?

(12/28 00:32:42) Hitana: k
(12/28 00:32:54) Nick White: Real early.
(12/28 00:32:56) Vortmax: Ooooh, fun
(12/28 00:32:56) ireenquench: I have always wanted to ask you about the two Shomat story versions... how many other sources did you use for the history version... and why does it leave out the Genocide?
(12/28 00:33:05) Arthur Kalnins: Oh? What are they?
(12/28 00:33:29) Nick White: Can't say. It's gotten a bit stricter since I've been back.
(12/28 00:33:38) Nick White: Remind me of the Shomat stories...the King?
(12/28 00:33:42) Arthur Kalnins: Okay.
(12/28 00:33:44) Dogwood: fuul house here
(12/28 00:33:50) Arthur Kalnins: King Shomat
(12/28 00:33:56) Nick White: Two versions?
(12/28 00:34:07) Leonor: Shorah
(12/28 00:34:18) Hitana: SWN tonight...i'm getting exited...
(12/28 00:34:20) Nick White: That was a long time ago but I'm trying to remember.
(12/28 00:34:26) Nick White: We use lots of stuff for those summaries.
(12/28 00:34:32) Arthur Kalnins: I've seen two. One on the Tokotah and one in Eder Kemo.
(12/28 00:34:34) Tweek: perhaps he is refering to the one thats in Kemo and the other book which is on the Tokotah II roof
(12/28 00:34:48) Arthur Kalnins: I didn't know there was a difference.
(12/28 00:34:51) Camann: Swn?
(12/28 00:34:58) Arthur Kalnins: Spoken Word Night
(12/28 00:35:04) Thend: Thend is HERE!
(12/28 00:35:08) Thend: Hello all :)
(12/28 00:35:09) Nick White: I don't think I did two summaries though.
(12/28 00:35:10) Camann: Ahh, thanks
(12/28 00:35:10) ireenquench: Shomat was the King who supposedly kiled an indigenous race in a garden age... the one version states that...but it is more in afairy tale style...the latter version...also written by you.... leaves that out.
(12/28 00:35:11) Arthur Kalnins: I think Whil's coming down for it.
(12/28 00:35:19) Hitana: Hi thend!
(12/28 00:35:34) Nick White: Ah right, that's from one of the Holy Books
(12/28 00:35:37) Tweek: Arthur one is a journal roughly about shomats reign, the other is about a specific event
(12/28 00:35:40) Nick White: The other is more of a historical summation
(12/28 00:35:42) Akin: whats josh staub's ID?
(12/28 00:35:43) Ro'to: Shorah, Thend
(12/28 00:35:44) Arthur Kalnins: Ah, okay
(12/28 00:35:48) Arthur Kalnins: Now I understand.
(12/28 00:35:54) Hitana: who is josh staub?
(12/28 00:35:54) Nick White: I think.
(12/28 00:35:55) ireenquench: Hi Thend.

(12/28 00:36:16) Tweek: Hey Nick, do you happen to know where our Great Tree jackets are?
(12/28 00:36:17) Arthur Kalnins: So you're talking about the King book itself and the other being the "Shomat Story" book.
(12/28 00:36:25) Hitana: now that are a lot of people i hope i dont get lagged!
(12/28 00:36:33) Dogwood: can i get my membership back
(12/28 00:36:47) Nick White: Don't know.
(12/28 00:36:48) Thend is still hoping for a his shirt with 'UBER' on it
(12/28 00:36:49) Fra'ni: Yep, refunds issued at the door.
(12/28 00:36:52) Nick White: About jackets.
(12/28 00:36:57) Tweek: ok thanks
(12/28 00:37:13) ireenquench: What are the holy books about? Are they going to be acessible to explorers?
(12/28 00:37:14) Frolain (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(12/28 00:37:47) Montgomery: endchat/no
(12/28 00:37:48) Nick White: There are a lot.
(12/28 00:37:54) Hitana: bleu hair and red shoes...very nice ireen!
(12/28 00:37:58) Frolain: didn't this scope used to be more mobile?
(12/28 00:38:02) Nick White: The D'ni didn't have one special holy book but considered quite a few
(12/28 00:38:06) Montgomery: what's the command to record a chat log?
(12/28 00:38:10) Thend: ireen is very fashionable
(12/28 00:38:20) Fra'ni: Type /startlog
(12/28 00:38:20) Frolain: use /startlog
(12/28 00:38:25) Nick White: The Regeltavok Oorpah is the oldest I think
(12/28 00:38:35) Montgomery: Thanks
(12/28 00:38:41) ireenquench blushes and continues listening to Nick
(12/28 00:38:43) Thend: Montgomery, and /stoplog to end it
(12/28 00:38:47) Vortmax: What do they cover? History, or religion, or what?
(12/28 00:38:48) Dogwood: i want to be a member of this hood like i was in UU
(12/28 00:38:48) Hitana: yes the prophecies...
(12/28 00:39:04) Arthur Kalnins: What does that mean? Regeltavok Oorpah?
(12/28 00:39:16) Nick White: Right, as well as other stuff.
(12/28 00:39:24) Frolain: if you delete your book I can invite you
(12/28 00:39:25) Nick White: It's not all prophecies.
(12/28 00:39:47) Nick White: Book of Oorpah basically
(12/28 00:39:57) Nick White: Oorpah was a prophet from Garternay
(12/28 00:39:58) Vortmax: Oorpah was a person?
(12/28 00:40:00) Arthur Kalnins: Ah. Makes sense
(12/28 00:40:08) Vortmax: Oooh, so it must be a REALLY old book!
(12/28 00:40:11) Hitana: ooh
(12/28 00:40:16) Sherpa: Whoah
(12/28 00:40:18) Nick White: Yeah I don't think we have the original. : )
(12/28 00:40:20) Thend: Oprah is famous, Vort, surprised you haven't heard of her
(12/28 00:40:25) Nick White: Ha
(12/28 00:40:28) Arthur Kalnins: Sort of like the old testament?
(12/28 00:40:30) Nick White: Nice one.
(12/28 00:40:31) Vortmax can't remember all the details of History
(12/28 00:40:44) Dan'ni takes a snapshot of Nick for Cavern Today.
(12/28 00:40:47) Vortmax starts to laugh
(12/28 00:40:47) Nick White: Not sure it works like that.
(12/28 00:40:56) Dan'ni: Hope you don't mind, Nick. :)
(12/28 00:40:59) Hitana: is everyone of you here for Spoken Word Night?
(12/28 00:41:06) Nick White: That Book and one of the Great King were some of the oldest and the most read probably but they had more
(12/28 00:41:16) Janine: so many people!!! this rocks!
(12/28 00:41:19) Thend: Nick, you probably been asked , but, where's Sharper? Btw, welcome back and how are you?
(12/28 00:41:21) Arthur Kalnins nods his head
(12/28 00:41:22) Vortmax: Still, something from Garternay. That's something I'd really love to read, even if it's not the original :D
(12/28 00:41:22) Thend nods his head
(12/28 00:41:27) Amy Rose: I was looking forward to SWN... but I've got to leave for work in about an hour.
(12/28 00:41:28) Nick White: Tevahr seemed to be a newer writer who was pretty popular too.
(12/28 00:41:36) ireenquench: From Garternay, cool. Is it in D'ni? Or some older language, like Pre-D'ni?
(12/28 00:41:57) Tweek: have you done any research into the exodus from Garternay? Cause I have a theory that the Ronay split off into 5 groups
(12/28 00:42:01) Tweek: woops
(12/28 00:42:03) Tweek: sorry
(12/28 00:42:19) Nick White: It's still D'ni - a little older version which makes it a bit harder
(12/28 00:42:38) Vortmax: Nick, have you found any novels, fiction books?
(12/28 00:42:40) Tweek thwaps KI enter text key
(12/28 00:42:42) Nick White: Could be. I haven't heard that rumor.
(12/28 00:42:49) Nick White: Yeah
(12/28 00:42:57) Atriz: Woah.
(12/28 00:42:59) Vortmax: I'd love to read some of their entertainment too :D
(12/28 00:43:03) Atriz: Little party?
(12/28 00:43:06) Hitana: if there is a difference between terahnee and D'ni there must be also one between D'ni and garternay...
(12/28 00:43:11) Atriz: What's going on?
(12/28 00:43:20) Leonor: Is History easy to tell from fiction? Any chance there could be a confusion?
(12/28 00:43:22) Arthur Kalnins: Mahree had a little Kamkentah who's skin was-- :P
(12/28 00:43:25) Thend: Nick, are you going to read any D'ni stuff for Spoken Word Night tonight?
(12/28 00:43:26) Nick White: I"m sure.
(12/28 00:43:30) Tweek: Hitana> Garternay is where the D'ni and Terahnee came from
(12/28 00:43:31) Nick White: This isn't a perfect science.
(12/28 00:43:37) Atriz: What is everyone doing?
(12/28 00:43:41) Nick White: Uh, no...
(12/28 00:43:43) ireenquench: Atriz, Nick is a translator of D'ni resources... old documents.
(12/28 00:43:47) Thend: too bad
(12/28 00:43:49) Nick White: I don't know what Spoken word is...
(12/28 00:43:53) Atriz: Oooh.
(12/28 00:43:54) Nick White: And I do have work to do.
(12/28 00:43:58) Hitana: yes but after the departing things changed tweek
(12/28 00:44:01) Vortmax: (My theory says most of the Ronay went to Terahnee, and some came here, and there were other splinter groups.)
(12/28 00:44:15) Vortmax: (All unconfirmed, of course.)
(12/28 00:44:17) Nick White: Things have gotten a little more strict, like I said.
(12/28 00:44:20) Arthur Kalnins: Heh... We'll still need to get you as a celebrity SWN guest.
(12/28 00:44:29) Thend: We all get together, read stories, sing, postulate, whatever, in a group setting, every Wednesday
(12/28 00:44:30) Hitana cheers
(12/28 00:44:32) Vortmax: Nick: SWN = Spoken Word Night
(12/28 00:44:34) Nick White: Cool.
(12/28 00:44:42) Vortmax: Yeah, what Thend said :D
(12/28 00:44:53) Janine: well said Thend
(12/28 00:44:53) Arthur Kalnins: Might be nice to see what the D'ni could offer.
(12/28 00:44:58) Hitana: every wed? well thats not possible for all of us!
(12/28 00:45:01) Nick White: I don't speak it very well...
(12/28 00:45:06) Arthur Kalnins claps his hands
(12/28 00:45:06) Arthur Kalnins: Nice, Thend.
(12/28 00:45:12) Thend: Neither do we, Nick
(12/28 00:45:22) Hitana: shorah b'shemtee
(12/28 00:45:23) Nick White: You probably speak it better than me.
(12/28 00:45:28) ireenquench: Nick, you can't talk freely about your work? Why not? Does it involve the world formula? ;)
(12/28 00:45:29) Thend laughs
(12/28 00:45:31) Hitana: thoe kenem?
(12/28 00:45:39) Arthur Kalnins: Is it necessary to speak it, Nick? As in, are there sentence structures that flow better in D'ni than English?
(12/28 00:45:39) Nick White: We have rules.
(12/28 00:45:42) Vortmax: SECRET formula, ireen :D
(12/28 00:45:49) Nick White: formula?
(12/28 00:45:59) ireenquench laughs
(12/28 00:46:01) Thend: Ancient D'ni secret formula
(12/28 00:46:06) Nick White: No, just that things are starting to run a little more like a business now.
(12/28 00:46:09) Arthur Kalnins: 7 secret words and spices
(12/28 00:46:13) Nick White: With Cate involved.
(12/28 00:46:14) Thend starts to laugh
(12/28 00:46:18) Arthur Kalnins: Cate?
(12/28 00:46:20) Vortmax: That name again. Who is Cate??
(12/28 00:46:21) Tweek: who is Cate?
(12/28 00:46:22) Thend: Who's Cate?
(12/28 00:46:29) Vortmax: Kodama mentioned her once before.
(12/28 00:46:30) Tweek: who am I?
(12/28 00:46:34) Dan'ni: Let me guess - Cate is the main decision maker now?
(12/28 00:46:35) Hitana: lol
(12/28 00:46:37) Arthur Kalnins: Kodama was meeting with a Cate. Who is she?
(12/28 00:46:39) ireenquench: Cate is all into being hush hush?
(12/28 00:46:39) Nick White: Uh...you'll find out.
(12/28 00:46:43) Thend: or, to put it another way, Who's Cate?
(12/28 00:46:44) Vortmax starts to laugh
(12/28 00:46:44) Atriz: Oh.
(12/28 00:46:47) Nick White: I think there's an announcement of some kind coming...
(12/28 00:46:48) Vortmax: Of course.
(12/28 00:46:49) Sherpa: Apparently...
(12/28 00:46:53) Tweek: Cate is the puppet master
(12/28 00:46:54) Atriz: When is it coming?
(12/28 00:46:57) Lontahv: Who is Blake?
(12/28 00:47:01) Thend: Wow, jeepers
(12/28 00:47:07) Nick White: Blake is a friend of Cate's...I think.
(12/28 00:47:07) Tweek: Blake is GameTaps head guy
(12/28 00:47:08) Vortmax: Blake Lewin is the guy in charge of GameTap.
(12/28 00:47:10) Arthur Kalnins: And will we see this Cate?
(12/28 00:47:14) Nick White: Oh yeah.
(12/28 00:47:16) Vortmax: Whoa, friend of Cate?
(12/28 00:47:25) Arthur Kalnins: Ah... is that a good thing or bad?
(12/28 00:47:30) Dan'ni: I just had a chat with Engberg and he said that things are not just DRC's decisions. So I suspect this Cate might be the one who pulls the strings? :)
(12/28 00:47:33) Vortmax: So Cate is connected to Turner as well? We know they're funding you guys this time. :D
(12/28 00:47:33) Nick White: She's cool - I like her.
(12/28 00:47:43) Arthur Kalnins: Yet she's strict?
(12/28 00:47:49) Arthur Kalnins: I'm not sure I like her..
(12/28 00:47:56) Arthur Kalnins: If she's restricting you guys
(12/28 00:47:58) Nick White: Well... Cate doesn't work for Turner.
(12/28 00:48:11) Nick White: And I'm not sure the - alright, I'm done.
(12/28 00:48:15) Vortmax shivers with antici........pation
(12/28 00:48:18) Nick White: Gotta be careful here.
(12/28 00:48:22) Hitana: lol
(12/28 00:48:25) Vortmax: Awww, come on, just a bit more? :D
(12/28 00:48:27) ireenquench: Too bad you can't just talk with us freely... shame not to be able to just exchange info... among explorers.... maybe more in private?
(12/28 00:48:27) Vortmax starts to laugh
(12/28 00:48:27) Nick White: I'll let her explain everything.
(12/28 00:48:34) Dan'ni gives Nick some beer.
(12/28 00:48:40) Vortmax roars with laughter
(12/28 00:48:40) Dan'ni: C'mon Nick spill the beans
(12/28 00:48:44) Nick White: Well, I know this stuff will be all over the boards so it's not very private.
(12/28 00:48:45) Arthur Kalnins: Hmm..Let Cate know she needs to be less strict, Nick... you remember what happened the last time..
(12/28 00:48:46) Frolain: when should we expect an announcement then?
(12/28 00:48:46) Hitana starts to laugh
(12/28 00:48:47) Janine: yeah spill it
(12/28 00:49:01) Vortmax: Oh give up guys. He's not going to say more. :)
(12/28 00:49:06) Arthur Kalnins shrugs
(12/28 00:49:08) gelf56: i just gota know do kate a sawyer get away!?
(12/28 00:49:10) Tweek: no don't...beer is sticky and I am sick of cleaning up this hood...
(12/28 00:49:17) Dan'ni: We won't say you told us. We'll say that uhhh.... Mr. Bob told us.
(12/28 00:49:18) Hitana begs on him
(12/28 00:49:18) Arthur Kalnins: I guess so. You guys have been very good dealing with us
(12/28 00:49:18) Nick White: Dude, I love LOST.
(12/28 00:49:20) Thend: In private, ireen? No,we should have transparency here
(12/28 00:49:22) Tweek: see the world they said..become a DRCL they said...riiiight...
(12/28 00:49:22) Vortmax: So, are you getting to do any translation work?
(12/28 00:49:26) Arthur Kalnins: All in good time, I suppose.
(12/28 00:49:27) Nick White: I wish it was that Cate.... : )
(12/28 00:49:29) Vortmax: Or is it all restoration stuff?
(12/28 00:49:36) Nick White: she's not though....
(12/28 00:49:41) gelf56: aww
(12/28 00:49:51) Nick White: A bit older...
(12/28 00:49:53) Sherpa: dang
(12/28 00:49:54) Vortmax: Ooooh, I've got this theory that Dr. K was playing the Dharma guy (from the instruction videos) while he was on the surface
(12/28 00:49:55) Nick White: : )
(12/28 00:50:03) Nick White: That was his brother...
(12/28 00:50:05) Nick White: : )
(12/28 00:50:07) Arthur Kalnins starts to laugh
(12/28 00:50:07) Vortmax starts to laugh
(12/28 00:50:08) Hitana: lol
(12/28 00:50:12) Janine: lol at Vort
(12/28 00:50:16) Arthur Kalnins: Mark Kodama? :P
(12/28 00:50:27) Vortmax: Seriously, I've got a picture somewhere comparing the two. It explains a lot if they're brothers.
(12/28 00:50:29) Nick White: That's a fun joke around the DRC...
(12/28 00:50:37) Arthur Kalnins starts to laugh
(12/28 00:50:38) Thend: Vort, it's been confirmed the Dharma guy is, in fact, Kodama's brother, sez Kodama himself
(12/28 00:50:39) ireenquench: Well, I love transparency... just thinking what would give Nick a higher comfort level... and not sure if Cate will read the boards... if she's that businessy
(12/28 00:50:40) Dan'ni: Ikuro Candle ;)
(12/28 00:50:43) Nick White: He does have a brother but I don't think that's him

Arthur was in the hood and all over the place today. He logged most of the stuff that went on today and sent me his cleaned up log. This is what he sent:

Quote:
Before this, I said Shorah to Michael via public chat. He responded privately saying Hello. Asked him how he was and this is how the rest of the day went. Edited down to remove useless chat.
(12/27 17:12:33) Chat.log started...
(12/27 17:12:44) From Michael Engberg: Fine thanks. Busy. And youself?
(12/27 17:13:08) To Michael Engberg: Good. Just got back down from Christmas. Did you and Wheely have a good Christmas?
(12/27 17:13:45) From Michael Engberg: Very nice thanks. First time for a Christmas in the cavern. Quiet.
(12/27 17:17:16) To Michael Engberg: Where are you, Michael? People are grouping by the Docks, but I don't see you there.
(12/27 17:17:51) From Michael Engberg: I'm checking the Gallery doors.
(12/27 17:18:24) To Michael Engberg: Ah. Thanks.

Nick White linked in.

(12/27 17:46:56) Nick White: Hey guys
(12/27 17:47:00) Nick White waves
(12/27 17:47:10) Vortmax: Good to see you down here again Nick :D
(12/27 17:47:11) Nick White: Big crowd.
(12/27 17:47:40) Arthur Kalnins: Shorah, Nick
(12/27 17:48:01) Nick White: What's everybody doing?
(12/27 17:48:11) Jan Stepmeir: killing time
(12/27 17:48:14) Renfield: We're waiting around, Nick
(12/27 17:48:15) Vortmax: Heh, we were hoping to see Engberg, but he ran off without coming over here :)
(12/27 17:48:16) Andrew Yosso: Waiting
(12/27 17:48:17) Arthur Kalnins: Looking for Engberg, what else :P
(12/27 17:48:30) Rusty_Russell: More in hope than expectation, waiting for barriers to come down
(12/27 17:48:42) Arthur Kalnins: How are things, Nick?
(12/27 17:48:43) Nick White: Yeah I bet.
(12/27 17:48:50) Nick White: Pretty good.
(12/27 17:49:23) b'lyn: If we go on a hunger strike here, do you think they will take pity and let us in?
(12/27 17:49:32) Nick White: Nope
(12/27 17:49:39) Nick White: I doubt it.
(12/27 17:50:04) Arthur Kalnins: Sure, I'll ask this question for the trillionth time.. Have you heard anything from Doug Sharper?
(12/27 17:50:05) b'lyn roars with laughter
(12/27 17:50:05) Andrew Yosso laughs
(12/27 17:50:13) Ian A. Pertwee groans at the question
(12/27 17:50:17) Arthur Kalnins: (nice timing :P)
(12/27 17:50:26) Nick White: Not for a long time...
(12/27 17:50:34) Arthur Kalnins: Just checking..
(12/27 17:50:40) Andrew Yosso: He had a way with barriers
(12/27 17:50:41) Poutrew: We need Sharper baxk.
(12/27 17:50:48) Jon Whitter: Does anyone want to hear from him?
(12/27 17:50:53) Arthur Kalnins: Been doing any interesting translations recently?
(12/27 17:50:58) Nick White: Careful what you wish for.
(12/27 17:51:06) Arthur Kalnins snickers
(12/27 17:51:42) Ian A. Pertwee: Nick, would it be possible to take a look at some non-modernized translations, to have a look at the D'ni style of writing?
(12/27 17:51:53) Nick White: I suppose but that's not my call.
(12/27 17:52:13) Nick White: He's probably watching the Patriots and hoping they go to another Super Bowl.
(12/27 17:53:08) Nick White: Alright, later guys.
(12/27 17:53:14) Nick White waves
(12/27 17:53:15) Arthur Kalnins: Bye, Nick
(12/27 17:53:19) Arthur Kalnins waves

Nick then linked back and forth through the EDEN Gira neighborhood. I think he was looking for something in the Prayer Rooms since he was in there for the longest time. He had to Relto out since the doors still didn't work.

I linked to the UO hood because there was a large gathering there (and because of Spoken Word Night /plug)
I assume Nick says "He's in the DRC hood" refering to Michael Engberg.

(12/27 18:30:22) Nick White: He's in the DRC hood.
(12/27 18:30:27) Vortmax: Ah, okay.
(12/27 18:30:43) Vortmax: So Nick, anything new and exciting you've been translating?
(12/27 18:31:21) Nick White: Not especially... I've been down here on and off
(12/27 18:31:38) Nick White: Helping out in other areas as well.
(12/27 18:31:42) Nick White: A little with Kodama.
(12/27 18:31:46) Nick White: That's been cool.
(12/27 18:31:54) Arthur Kalnins: Oh? With what?
(12/27 18:32:01) Nick White: Future stuff.
(12/27 18:32:10) Nick White: Kodama is early phase work so he gets there early.
(12/27 18:32:11) Arthur Kalnins starts to laugh
(12/27 18:32:11) Arthur Kalnins: That's pretty broad :P
(12/27 18:32:28) Nick White: What do you want to know?
(12/27 18:32:42) Nick White: I've been to two Ages pretty recently...one doesn't even have a name yet.
(12/27 18:32:55) Nick White: Real early.
(12/27 18:32:57) Vortmax: Ooooh, fun
(12/27 18:32:58) ireenquench: I have always wanted to ask you about the two Shomat story versions... how many other sources did you use for the history version... and why does it leave out the Genocide?
(12/27 18:33:05) Arthur Kalnins: Oh? What are they?
(12/27 18:33:30) Nick White: Can't say. It's gotten a bit stricter since I've been back.
(12/27 18:33:39) Nick White: Remind me of the Shomat stories...the King?
(12/27 18:33:43) Arthur Kalnins: Okay.
(12/27 18:33:51) Arthur Kalnins: King Shomat
(12/27 18:33:57) Nick White: Two versions?
(12/27 18:34:21) Nick White: That was a long time ago but I'm trying to remember.
(12/27 18:34:27) Nick White: We use lots of stuff for those summaries.
(12/27 18:34:33) Arthur Kalnins: I've seen two. One on the Tokotah and one in Eder Kemo.
(12/27 18:34:35) Tweek: perhaps he is refering to the one thats in Kemo and the other book which is on the Tokotah II roof
(12/27 18:34:49) Arthur Kalnins: I didn't know there was a difference.
(12/27 18:35:10) Nick White: I don't think I did two summaries though.
(12/27 18:35:11) ireenquench: Shomat was the King who supposedly kiled an indigenous race in a garden age... the one version states that...but it is more in afairy tale style...the latter version...also written by you.... leaves that out.
(12/27 18:35:35) Nick White: Ah right, that's from one of the Holy Books
(12/27 18:35:38) Tweek: Arthur one is a journal roughly about shomats reign, the other is about a specific event
(12/27 18:35:41) Nick White: The other is more of a historical summation
(12/27 18:35:45) Arthur Kalnins: Ah, okay
(12/27 18:35:49) Arthur Kalnins: Now I understand.
(12/27 18:35:54) Nick White: I think.
(12/27 18:36:04) ireenquench: Holy books????
(12/27 18:36:17) Nick White: Yeah.
(12/27 18:36:17) Tweek: Hey Nick, do you happen to know where our Great Tree jackets are?
(12/27 18:36:48) Nick White: Don't know.
(12/27 18:36:53) Nick White: About jackets.
(12/27 18:36:58) Tweek: ok thanks
(12/27 18:37:14) ireenquench: What are the holy books about? Are they going to be acessible to explorers?
(12/27 18:37:49) Nick White: There are a lot.
(12/27 18:38:03) Nick White: The D'ni didn't have one special holy book but considered quite a few
(12/27 18:38:27) Nick White: The Regeltavok Oorpah is the oldest I think
(12/27 18:38:48) Vortmax: What do they cover? History, or religion, or what?
(12/27 18:39:05) Arthur Kalnins: What does that mean? Regeltavok Oorpah?
(12/27 18:39:17) Nick White: Right, as well as other stuff.
(12/27 18:39:26) Nick White: It's not all prophecies.
(12/27 18:39:48) Nick White: Book of Oorpah basically
(12/27 18:39:59) Nick White: Oorpah was a prophet from Garternay
(12/27 18:39:59) Vortmax: Oorpah was a person?
(12/27 18:40:01) Arthur Kalnins: Ah. Makes sense
(12/27 18:40:09) Vortmax: Oooh, so it must be a REALLY old book!
(12/27 18:40:19) Nick White: Yeah I don't think we have the original. : )
(12/27 18:40:21) Thend: Oprah is famous, Vort, surprised you haven't heard of her
(12/27 18:40:27) Nick White: Ha
(12/27 18:40:29) Arthur Kalnins: Sort of like the old testament?
(12/27 18:40:31) Nick White: Nice one.
(12/27 18:40:47) Vortmax starts to laugh
(12/27 18:40:48) Nick White: Not sure it works like that.
(12/27 18:41:07) Nick White: That Book and one of the Great King were some of the oldest and the most read probably but they had more
(12/27 18:41:29) Nick White: Tevahr seemed to be a newer writer who was pretty popular too.
(12/27 18:41:38) ireenquench: From Garternay, cool. Is it in D'ni? Or some older language, like Pre-D'ni?
(12/27 18:41:58) Tweek: have you done any research into the exodus from Garternay? Cause I have a theory that the Ronay split off into 5 groups
(12/27 18:42:20) Nick White: It's still D'ni - a little older version which makes it a bit harder
(12/27 18:42:39) Vortmax: Nick, have you found any novels, fiction books?
(12/27 18:42:43) Nick White: Could be. I haven't heard that rumor.
(12/27 18:42:50) Nick White: Yeah
(12/27 18:43:21) Leonor: Is History easy to tell from fiction? Any chance there could be a confusion?
(12/27 18:43:26) Thend: Nick, are you going to read any D'ni stuff for Spoken Word Night tonight?
(12/27 18:43:27) Nick White: I"m sure.
(12/27 18:43:32) Nick White: This isn't a perfect science.
(12/27 18:43:42) Nick White: Uh, no...
(12/27 18:43:50) Nick White: I don't know what Spoken word is...
(12/27 18:43:55) Nick White: And I do have work to do.
(12/27 18:44:18) Nick White: Things have gotten a little more strict, like I said.
(12/27 18:44:21) Arthur Kalnins: Heh... We'll still need to get you as a celebrity SWN guest.
(12/27 18:44:33) Vortmax: Nick: SWN = Spoken Word Night
(12/27 18:44:35) Nick White: Cool.
(12/27 18:44:54) Arthur Kalnins: Might be nice to see what the D'ni could offer.
(12/27 18:45:02) Nick White: I don't speak it very well...
(12/27 18:45:24) Nick White: You probably speak it better than me.
(12/27 18:45:29) ireenquench: Nick, you can't talk freely about your work? Why not? Does it involve the world formula? ;)
(12/27 18:45:41) Nick White: We have rules.
(12/27 18:45:50) Nick White: formula?
(12/27 18:46:07) Nick White: No, just that things are starting to run a little more like a business now.
(12/27 18:46:14) Nick White: With Cate involved.
(12/27 18:46:19) Arthur Kalnins: Cate?
(12/27 18:46:21) Vortmax: That name again. Who is Cate??
(12/27 18:46:22) Tweek: who is Cate?
(12/27 18:46:23) Thend: Who's Cate?
(12/27 18:46:30) Vortmax: Kodama mentioned her once before.
(12/27 18:46:35) Dan'ni: Let me guess - Cate is the main decision maker now?
(12/27 18:46:37) Arthur Kalnins: Kodama was meeting with a Cate. Who is she?
(12/27 18:46:40) Nick White: Uh...you'll find out.
(12/27 18:46:40) ireenquench: Cate is all into being hush hush?
(12/27 18:46:44) Thend: or, to put it another way, Who's Cate?
(12/27 18:46:48) Nick White: I think there's an announcement of some kind coming...
(12/27 18:46:49) Vortmax: Of course.
(12/27 18:47:08) Nick White: Blake is a friend of Cate's...I think.
(12/27 18:47:10) Arthur Kalnins: And will we see this Cate?
(12/27 18:47:14) Nick White: Oh yeah.
(12/27 18:47:25) Arthur Kalnins: Ah... is that a good thing or bad?
(12/27 18:47:31) Dan'ni: I just had a chat with Engberg and he said that things are not just DRC's decisions. So I suspect this Cate might be the one who pulls the strings? :)
(12/27 18:47:34) Vortmax: So Cate is connected to Turner as well? We know they're funding you guys this time. :D
(12/27 18:47:34) Nick White: She's cool - I like her.
(12/27 18:47:44) Arthur Kalnins: Yet she's strict?
(12/27 18:47:50) Arthur Kalnins: I'm not sure I like her..
(12/27 18:47:57) Arthur Kalnins: If she's restricting you guys
(12/27 18:47:59) Nick White: Well... Cate doesn't work for Turner.
(12/27 18:48:12) Nick White: And I'm not sure the - alright, I'm done.
(12/27 18:48:19) Nick White: Gotta be careful here.
(12/27 18:48:28) Nick White: I'll let her explain everything.
(12/27 18:48:45) Arthur Kalnins: Hmm..Let Cate know she needs to be less strict, Nick... you remember what happened the last time..
(12/27 18:48:46) Nick White: Well, I know this stuff will be all over the boards so it's not very private.
(12/27 18:48:47) Frolain: when should we expect an announcement then?
(12/27 18:49:09) gelf56: i just gota know do kate a sawyer get away!?
(12/27 18:49:19) Nick White: Dude, I love LOST.
(12/27 18:49:28) Nick White: I wish it was that Cate.... : )
(12/27 18:49:37) Nick White: she's not though....
(12/27 18:49:52) Nick White: A bit older...
(12/27 18:49:55) Vortmax: Ooooh, I've got this theory that Dr. K was playing the Dharma guy (from the instruction videos) while he was on the surface
(12/27 18:49:56) Nick White: : )
(12/27 18:50:04) Nick White: That was his brother...
(12/27 18:50:06) Nick White: : )
(12/27 18:50:16) Arthur Kalnins: Mark Kodama? :P
(12/27 18:50:28) Vortmax: Seriously, I've got a picture somewhere comparing the two. It explains a lot if they're brothers.
(12/27 18:50:30) Nick White: That's a fun joke around the DRC...
(12/27 18:50:44) Nick White: He does have a brother but I don't think that's him
(12/27 18:50:52) Nick White: Uh, yes, she will read the boards.
(12/27 18:51:05) Nick White: Alright, well I suppose I should get going...
(12/27 18:51:09) Nick White: Been fun guys.
(12/27 18:51:18) Nick White: I'll see you around.
(12/27 18:51:22) Dan'ni: Thanks for stopping Nick. Say hi to Cate from us.
(12/27 18:51:24) Nick White waves
(12/27 18:51:29) Dan'ni: Tell her we're watching. And waiting.
(12/27 18:51:33) Arthur Kalnins: Find someone to leak stuff to! :P
(12/27 18:51:44) Nick White: You can tell her yourself when you see her.
(12/27 18:53:59) ...Chat.log stopped.

Isn't he the guy who worked with Sharper? AFAIK he is mentioned in Sharper's notebook in his office.

Nick White is a ResEng, a translator in fact. :)

Yup, he's the guy that worked with Sharper, and - according to Sharper - was also willing to "bend the DRC rules" a bit, back in the days. I am not sure if he is also an historian or "just" a translator, his work certainly seems more history related than (for example) tech based. If a more free-minded guy like that comes back and is sincerely concerned that he should not divulge too much classified information, because (as it seems) Cate is in charge now, she must have a lot of authority or power.
