A virtual pat on the back at Lambda

[note: mechtild is my other alias. Don’t be alarmed.]
You say, “it’s an educational moo.”
You say, “I do historical simulations there.”
Mekon [to Mechtild]: really? What’s the name of it?
You say, “project achieve”
You say, “http://achieve.utoronto.ca:2221”
You say, “you can reach it with savitar too, that’s the GUI”
Mekon [to Mechtild]: I think I’ve heard of it
You ask, “really?”
You say, “wow…”
You giggle.
Mechtild is excited
Mekon [to Mechtild]: I came across one moo at utoronto a few weeks ago; I’m guessing that one was it…
You say, “there’s also MOOkti…”
You say, “and another one, I can’t remember…all on the same server.”
Green_Guest teleports in.
Mekon [to Mechtild]: OK,
Mekon waves at Green_Guest.
Green_Guest waves.
You say, “they give me tons of quota…”
You say, “so I’m happy. :)”
Mekon [to Mechtild]: Yeah, that would do it 😉
You giggle.
Mekon [to Mechtild]: What sort of simulation do you do on your moo?
Mechtild [to Mekon]: well, I do historical tableaux…
Mekon [to Mechtild]: for example…
Mechtild [to Mekon]: I recreate historical snapshots.
Mekon [to Mechtild]: For what purpose?
Mechtild [to Mekon]: okay, I recreated the moment when Luther argues for his beliefs in front of the emperor and his cronies, right before his excommunication…
Mekon [to Mechtild]: So someone can go to that room, or whatever, and read Luther’s speech as it scrolls across the screen, and as the characters do whatever it is they did?
You nod to Mekon.
You say, “it’s not so much a speech…”
You say, “it’s a conversation between bots.”
Mekon [to Mechtild]: OK, that sounds really interesting…It’s like you found a use for this sandbox 😉
dracus says, “neat”
Mekon [to Mechtild]: I mean a practical purpose, besides netsex and timewasting.
