[Laxman attempted to link to the Ferry Terminal, but had some difficulty.]
(01/09 19:21:02) From Jeffrey Lewis in D'ni-Ae'gura: haha he is in the link-in blob monster
(01/09 19:21:04) From Deathsbedbug in D'ni-Ae'gura: he's at the ferry where we enter
[Much waiting for Laxman to complete the link-in to the Ferry Terminal ensued.]
(01/09 19:27:43) Victor Laxman: Excuse me - quick check. Are all of the Nexus book MT stations working?
(01/09 19:27:53) BrettM: Yes, Mr. Laxman.
(01/09 19:27:58) ian1: I think so
(01/09 19:28:07) Isyldar: the last time i checked, they were
(01/09 19:28:26) BrettM: The stations that are available to us, anyway. B-)
(01/09 19:28:35) Victor Laxman: Ferry Terminal station is working?
(01/09 19:28:41) Deathsbedbug: i finally saw them in my nexus book when i came in
(01/09 19:28:48) Deathsbedbug: yes mr laxman
(01/09 19:28:48) Thanakar: Yes it is Victor
(01/09 19:28:49) ian1: probably.
(01/09 19:28:52) BrettM: Yes, sir. Just crowded.
(01/09 19:28:53) Dudemom_2000: yes, Mr. Laxman
(01/09 19:28:56) Isyldar: it is.
(01/09 19:29:04) Isyldar: Robert and I checked it out a few minutes ago
(01/09 19:29:05) Deathsbedbug: i think we flooded it with news of your arrival :S
(01/09 19:29:13) ian1: any exact dates on the new age that is supposed to be coming out?
(01/09 19:29:27) ian1: supposed to be opened up
(01/09 19:30:13) Dudemom_2000: Mr. Laxman, the lake seems brighter to me these days. Any comments on the restoration of the algae there>?
(01/09 19:30:37) Victor Laxman: Just worried about GZ and lattice issues right now.
(01/09 19:30:55) Victor Laxman: Always tougher than it looks.
(01/09 19:31:00) BrettM: Mr. Laxman, any comments about the condition of the scopes in the hoods?
(01/09 19:31:12) Victor Laxman: Blasted D'ni technology.
(01/09 19:31:50) ian1: I've been wondering. How exactly did you get the KIs to work in english?
(01/09 19:32:05) BrettM: Will you be able to open the GZ on Ms. Alexander's schedule?
(01/09 19:35:09) Victor Laxman: Can someone see if the Tokotah Alley station recognizes your KI?
(01/09 19:35:25) Baldan: it did
(01/09 19:35:36) Victor Laxman: No problems?
(01/09 19:35:45) Baldan: said it added a link to my Nexus
(01/09 19:36:05) Victor Laxman: Thank you. That helps.
(01/09 19:37:04) Victor Laxman: I'm going to come check it.
[While Laxman appeared to be stuck, Cate Alexander appeared in the Nexus. Laxman finally vanished.]
[Laxman finally re-linked in to Tokotah Alley.]
(01/09 19:55:27) ian1: Welcome victor
(01/09 19:55:52) Victor Laxman: thankk you ian
(01/09 19:56:07) Mike2: hello Victor
(01/09 19:56:16) BrettM: Glad you could finally get linked in.
(01/09 19:56:42) BrettM: Mr. Laxman, will you be able to meet Ms. Alexander's schedule for activating the GZ?
(01/09 19:57:12) Victor Laxman: Trouble, nothing but trouble. No promises.
(01/09 19:57:34) BrettM: We're sorry to hear that.
(01/09 19:57:50) BrettM: What can the community do to assist?
(01/09 19:57:55) Victor Laxman: Yeah, it's always something.
[At this point Cate Alexander linked in at the Ferry Terminal. Before she could reach the Plaza, Laxman Reltoed in a great hurry.]
(01/09 19:58:15) Victor Laxman: I've go to go.
(01/09 19:58:44) ian1: hello cate.
(01/09 19:59:27) Cate Alexander: Anyone seen Victor?
(01/09 19:59:33) BrettM: Good evening, Ms. Alexander. He just left.
(01/09 19:59:35) Thanakar: he just Reltoed out
(01/09 19:59:41) Mike2: How are this evening Ms. Alexander
(01/09 19:59:54) Cate Alexander: Hmm...
(01/09 20:00:02) J'iim: He's in his Relto now
(01/09 20:00:04) Butch: No, Ms. Alexander. I do not believe he is currently in the city.
(01/09 20:00:20) Cate Alexander: How long was he here?
(01/09 20:00:31) naru'dak: whats the problem ms alexander
(01/09 20:00:33) BrettM: Mr. Laxman seemed rather stressed. He wasn't here long.
(01/09 20:00:55) ian1: I think its something about the latus
(01/09 20:00:56) Cate Alexander: He's working hard but evidently not hard enough.
(01/09 20:01:10) Cate Alexander: I was expecting some things to be done that aren't yet.
(01/09 20:01:23) Lyn'et: He even ignored our offers to help
(01/09 20:01:35) Dudemom_2000: He said something about the Nexus, Ms. Alexander
(01/09 20:01:52) BrettM: He was complaining of troubles.
(01/09 20:01:57) Cate Alexander: Did he say anything about the Great Zero?
(01/09 20:02:04) Deathsbedbug: no cate he did not
(01/09 20:02:05) Finn: Indeed he did
(01/09 20:02:09) BrettM: Very little.
(01/09 20:02:09) Dudemom_2000: Yes, He mentioned the Great Zero
(01/09 20:02:11) ian1: He asked if the terminals in the city were working properly.
(01/09 20:02:26) Mike2: he said its very troublesome
(01/09 20:02:38) Thanakar: he mentioned no promises but lots of trouble
(01/09 20:02:40) Moleque: He said "troubles, nothing but troubles. no promises."
(01/09 20:02:44) Dudemom_2000: ah, but the Bahro sense something, they are very active tonight
(01/09 20:03:00) Cate Alexander: I'm sure he'll tell me the same thing when I find him.
(01/09 20:03:12) BrettM: I believe Mr. Laxman is uncertain about meeting your schedule.
(01/09 20:03:12) Dudemom_2000: but they don't sound unhappy to me
(01/09 20:03:13) Butch: Ms. Alexander, is there anything we can do to help you tonight?
(01/09 20:03:14) Deathsbedbug: what can we do to help cate?
(01/09 20:03:34) Cate Alexander: Consider this a warning - I don't expect us to open the Great Zero on time.
(01/09 20:03:45) ian1: Yeah. I think we may be able to help
(01/09 20:03:47) Cate Alexander: I apologize.
(01/09 20:03:58) Moleque: erm... Ms. Alexander
(01/09 20:03:59) Dudemom_2000: Anything we can do, Ms. Alexander....
(01/09 20:04:02) Butch: Thank you for your honesty. We appreciate that.
(01/09 20:04:14) Mike2: im just happy it will be here eventually
(01/09 20:04:16) Cate Alexander: I'm pushing him to work the weekend so I hope it will still be soon.
(01/09 20:04:45) BrettM: Technology takes time. We don't begrudge the time to get it right.
(01/09 20:05:01) Dudemom_2000 nods
(01/09 20:05:09) Cate Alexander: You are more forgiving than me.
(01/09 20:05:10) ian1: The new age will be on schedule though, right?
(01/09 20:05:16) Armadeon: The Bahro are especially active tonight.
(01/09 20:05:25) Cate Alexander: I'd like us to meet our deadlines.
(01/09 20:05:38) BrettM: How long does it take to catch a fish?
(01/09 20:05:50) Cate Alexander: I'm not sure Ian. That's why I'm a little irritated tonight.
(01/09 20:05:59) Lyn'et: as long as it takes
(01/09 20:06:04) Cate Alexander: I need to talk to Victor.
(01/09 20:06:08) Thanakar: Cate, what is holding things up?
(01/09 20:06:16) Cate Alexander: Ask Victor.
(01/09 20:06:30) Dudemom_2000: If we see him again, we will tell him you need to see him right away
(01/09 20:06:31) J'iim: Victor is in the Nexus now Cate
(01/09 20:06:52) Cate Alexander: Thanks J'iim. I'm off.
(01/09 20:06:54) Vixen Online: poor victor
(01/09 20:07:06) Mike2: bye Cate
(01/09 20:07:06) Vixen Online gives victor a hug
(01/09 20:07:12) BrettM: It was good to see you, Ms. Alexander.
[Shortly thereafter, both Alexander and Laxman were detected in a Bevin via KI. Apparently a private one, as no one reported seeing them in any of the public hoods. They remained there for several minutes.]

This is very, very disappointing.

New age delays I could understand, but previously opened areas like the GZ?

I am losing confidence in the DRC (and OOC: Cyan).

Oooh... hrm.

That didn't do much to help my vaguely uncomfortable feeling about Cate, I'll say that much. There's just something, hard for me to define in words, about her...

Then again, at least she was honest with the explorers about a.) dates and b.) her feelings, rather than hiding them behind a veneer. She's a forceful personality, to be sure.

Oh that figures! I wait for nearly 2 hours yesterday waiting for DRC and they show up the day I don't make it down to the caven because of a Vet appt. :evil: At least there's such a thing as chat logs, and at least it was a very short and not very informative.

As I pointed out elsewhere, Cate looks somewhat Hillary Clinton-esque.

(I still think she looks like Sharon Stone!)

What I am MORE upset about tonight - not the slipped dates - the fact that main instance Ae'gura was inaccessable again in early evening. When will we have cavern capacity improved? I was FINALLY able to link in during early evening, just happened to hit the Nexus when action was going down, and I had to rely on neighbor's relayed comments as to what was happening. Better than nothing (BIG thanks, UO neighbors!!) but it's kinda unsatisfying. Maybe we should call it "Ur almost there?"

Cate seems to be very manly for all her Barbie appearance. ;)


Quote:
(01/09 20:06:16) Cate Alexander: Ask Victor.


Here's what jumped into my thoughts the instant I read that, and what I would have said to Cate if I had the chance during her latest hit-and-run visit:

JWPlatt would have said:
Quote:
Cate, frankly that sounds exactly how the DRC often says to ask a different member. Of all people you should know effective leaders don't pass the buck. We're asking you. If you are the leader you put on the airs to be, you'll already have the information and you'll answer directly. Here and now.

You'll have to act fast, folks. Like I said, she's in and out like a missile strike. She wants to be in long enough to give the orders and out fast enough to avoid the questions.

Here are a few phrases to concentrate on with her for now:

- Hit-and-run visit
- Missile strike management
- Pass the buck philosophy
- "I don't have time for this" situational escapist artist

People, we need talking points up front so that our defenses are prepared for her to strike at any moment.

I begin to wonder if the planned release of the GZ as well as the new age are intentionally delayed for plot reasons. There is the possibility, no?

It's also convienient to be able to use storyline to cover for delay. I find no shame in that...it's better than just not meeting them.

Hehe, that's exactly what I was thinking. It's definitely a possibility...
