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.

PRUE.> it came from an idea after the virus you got and me and piper were discussing it and the story just fell into place

[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?

PRUE.> no

[JennyJ..] (I understood about 5 f***ing percent of that, Kim)

[josie-2] not I

[JeanRea] hummm I connected through a VPN from here in Japan and I'm doing OK, I hope :)

[ChatRoseMom] no just Lucy

[ChatRoseMom] giggle

[JennyJ..] Lucy?

[josie-2] How long will you be staying in Tokyo, Jean?

PRUE.> i would like to make a statement

[Crystal.] Kim, can you have a Windows operating system coexisting on your system?

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

[josie-2] .

[JeanRea] I was only posed to be here a week and then to Paris for a week then back here, it hasn't been that easy so far :(

PRUE.> you all know who you are thank you

JeanRea] yes josie, Paris

[ChatRoseMom] more than welcome Prue

[Kim_EM.........] here a week, there a week, everywhere a week week

[JennyJ..] Gonna call it The Britionary

Crystal.] Why not the Cockinary
