(9:54:36 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(9:55:10 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Hi
(9:55:14 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I'm semi-afk because cooking
(9:55:29 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: so I'll have to step away for a few minutes at a time here and there
(9:55:42 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Is this okay?
(9:55:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Yase.
(9:56:04 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Right now I'm waiting for my butter to melt.
(9:56:54 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: And I had to flee the kitchen for 15 minutes while Aaron waited for a rogue wasp to show himself again and then defeated him
(9:57:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: What did it drop?
(9:58:10 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Hunter token.
(9:58:17 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Figures.
(9:58:25 PM) Percy [] entered the room.
(9:58:40 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Alllo allo
(9:58:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya
(9:59:10 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I made Aaron cut the onions for me and my eyes are STILL burny :(
(10:00:10 PM) Percy: Hoy!
(10:00:46 PM) Percy: Just a warning, I'm using my laptop at the folks' house, and the network's being a little wonky.
(10:00:53 PM) Percy: So if I suddenly cut out, that's probably why.
(10:01:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alrighty
(10:01:19 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I still have to make stuffing, chex mix, and pumpkin cheesecake tonight
(10:01:34 PM) CdrHarper [] entered the room.
(10:01:39 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: and then we're driving up to Aaron's folks' place tomorrow morning
(10:02:00 PM) CdrTKirr [Mibbit@] entered the room.
(10:02:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya T'Kirr
(10:02:34 PM) CdrTKirr: Hey.
(10:04:17 PM) Percy: Okay...and now, where the crap is my boyfriend. :-P
(10:04:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Putting the finishing touches on dinner.
(10:04:29 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: The new site is looking really good from the very little I've poked around at it, Bern
(10:04:31 PM) Percy: Ahh..
(10:04:34 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Er, Jason
(10:04:51 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Thank you!
(10:05:30 PM) CdrTKirr: Yes, it's quite nice!
(10:05:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PM me for your password!
(10:06:38 PM) Percy: I've not yet gotten a chance to look at it, but I'm told its nice! So yay!
(10:07:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well go look while we wait on Mike!
(10:08:48 PM) Percy: ...That is a very smart idea. Durr.
(10:10:10 PM) ColDougMcKnight [] entered the room.
(10:10:12 PM) Percy: Okay, so Mike told me before that I need to download Wordpress or something?
(10:10:18 PM) Percy: Or did that change?
(10:10:21 PM) Percy: Also, hi honey!
(10:10:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Nope you don't have to download anything.
(10:10:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hiya Mike
(10:10:27 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Sorry! Took a few minutes longer than I expected.)
(10:10:29 PM) CdrTKirr: Welcome.
(10:10:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Wait, you don't?
(10:10:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Nope, you can do it all through the website.
(10:10:50 PM) CdrTKirr: Newp.
(10:11:03 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Crap, sorry. Hit the wrong tab.
(10:12:41 PM) ColDougMcKnight: So, how do we do it? It needs a WordPress password to log in, and I didn't see a register link. Just the download button.
(10:12:51 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I told Jason already, but FYI, I'm doing a bunch of cooking for tomorrow so I'm going AFK for a few minutes at a time.
(10:13:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Or did I just miss something?
(10:13:05 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Also, fair enough.
(10:13:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: You login to our site and PM me for your password.
(10:13:19 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I just clicked "Log In" under the Meta header on the left side
(10:13:22 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: and logged in :P
(10:14:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Username is your full character name as listed on the left side
(10:14:34 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Ah, okay.
(10:15:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Also, if you use RSS, you can subscribe to a site feed. This is really a better way to do updates than email.
(10:16:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: You all have author privileges and can already make posts and comment on existing posts!
(10:17:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: All logs of the current crew have been uploaded, going back to 2002.
(10:17:20 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Nice.
(10:17:21 PM) CdrTKirr: As I demonstrated.
(10:17:34 PM) Percy: Shweeet!
(10:17:34 PM) Percy: Is pretty nice.
(10:17:41 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: It'll be searchable and accessible by month/year when I get home
(10:17:55 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Just need time to make the archives page
(10:18:01 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: But the author sort works.
(10:19:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Be sure to tag your posts. Logs are our normal style logs, highlights are the little IC paragraph or so length snippets like T'Kirr and I posted, and Journals are official duty/personal log entries.
(10:20:43 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Pre-emptively :AA: but afk in kitchen for a few minutes
(10:20:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Any questions on the new site? Everyone log in and change your password?
(10:21:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: None for right now. But I'll take a better look after sim, and get back to you.
(10:22:58 PM) CdrTKirr: Yeah it took me a bit to get familiar with wordpress
(10:23:21 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I might be able to skin the admin portal to look like the rest of the site, but we'll see after I get everything working.
(10:23:59 PM) CdrTKirr: Mm... skin
(10:24:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Has everyone at least gotten in and changed passwords?
(10:24:41 PM) Percy: Yup!
(10:25:54 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Changed, not yet. One sec.
(10:27:17 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, done.
(10:27:27 PM) ColDougMcKnight: And apparently, it's strong. Yay.
(10:27:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Sweet.
(10:27:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, we'll get started.
(10:28:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Email me with any website questions, and we can talk more about it after the sim if needed.
(10:28:40 PM) CdrTKirr: :: TWEEEET :: Attention!
(10:28:50 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::AA::
(10:29:07 PM) CdrHarper: ::AA::
(10:29:27 PM) Percy: ::AA::
(10:30:01 PM) VAdmBlackthorne has changed the topic to: We continue our exploration of the spectacular moon and its ancient civilization. Underground ruins have been located, and translation of the pillar continues.
(10:30:27 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Questions?
(10:31:22 PM) Percy: What's the status of excavation?
(10:31:29 PM) Percy: Or...wait.
(10:31:31 PM) Percy: Underground.
(10:31:43 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We're just about to send Marines inside, no digging.
(10:32:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Yeah, unless something's changed since last time, we'd just discovered the entrance.
(10:32:11 PM) Percy: Sorry, I'm on those meds again. Just a little foggy-headed. But totally.
(10:32:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Not even sure if it had been definitively determined to be such, actually.
(10:32:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: The colonel is correct.
(10:32:33 PM) Percy: Sweet. Okay, cool.
(10:32:42 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alrighty then

(10:34:32 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Standing before the pyramid structure with his team, he glances over to their technician. :: So, have we got anything worth sticking around for, Mehra?
(10:34:33 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: a bit away from the pillar, taking in the surroundings ::
(10:36:35 PM) CdrTKirr: :: still standing over the pillar, studying image scans ::
(10:36:54 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: stubs his toe :: OW.
(10:37:20 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks over sharply ::
(10:37:45 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Mehra> ::Frowning at her instruments:: I imagine science and/or engineering will definitely take some interest, sir. I'm having trouble getting any useful scans of the interior. Normally, something like this is a sign of local jamming, but that means EM, and I'm not picking any up.
(10:38:32 PM) ColDougMcKnight: So, it's passive. There are a number of known materials that can interfere with sensor scans, correct?
(10:38:39 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: leans over to see what he stubbed his toe on, and finds a cut stone cube ::
(10:39:27 PM) Percy: :: Is taking interest:: So what do you think it is? Some other type of diffusing energy?
(10:40:08 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: brushes it off ::
(10:40:23 PM) CdrTKirr: :: senses Ian's curiosity and walks over ::
(10:40:55 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Mehra> Tthis configuration doesn't match any of them. It looks almost as though whoever built this structure devised some sort of...honeycomb structure is the best way I can describe it without a closer look, to absorb and trap the scanner waves without allowing them back to me. The fact I'm getting anything may suggest it wasn't intended for
(10:41:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: close range scans, maybe.
(10:41:24 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Look. :: points at the cube, which is about half a meter on a side and covered in writing ::
(10:41:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Is Percy with the marines?)
(10:42:18 PM) Percy: ( I thought they were at the entrance? Crap, did I miss something again? If they're at the entrance, then yes.)
(10:43:00 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (No, my fault I guess. Wasn;t explained. The marines aren't with Blackthorne and T'Kirr. They headed off to investigate some other runins Kuari spotted from the air.)
(10:43:38 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (Back, sorry,stuffing is in the oven now, reading back)
(10:44:35 PM) CdrTKirr: :: frowns down with interest at the cube :: Does it belong to the pillar?
(10:44:53 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Doesn't look like it.... I wonder if there are more?
(10:44:57 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (So...yes, they are at the entrance. Though they don't know what it leads to yet.)
(10:45:16 PM) Percy: (Oh...then no, protocol would probably advise being with the more scientific group)
(10:45:38 PM) Percy: (Sigh)
(10:45:38 PM) Percy: (OH.)
(10:46:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: See if we can set up scanners to search the area for more of these cubes.
(10:46:43 PM) CdrTKirr: :: starts looking around the brush below and configures her tricorder ::
(10:46:43 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (It's okay. This will merit giving her a call.)
(10:47:10 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: conferring with her science team, sees the Admiral and his cube, heads over there with a couple science people to observe and study :: Oooh, interesting find, Admiral. I'd like to make a request on behalf of the science team - could we have people refrain from moving artifacts as much as possible until we can document the site and take samples?
(10:47:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Agreed, lieutenant.
(10:50:02 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Request permission to cordon off excavation site into sections and release sections individually after the science team has been able to take measurements and document positioning...? ::fidgets very slightly with a buckle on her vest::
(10:51:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Granted. Though I don't want to dig anything up just yet, stay with the surface finds.
(10:53:11 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Of course, Sir. I realize that may seem excessive, but given the apparent importance of this find, it would be a shame to have our findings contaminated by any carelessness that may result from our excitement. :: glances nervously over at the Marines who are preparing to enter ruins ::
(10:53:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (The marines are not within site of the main group.)
(10:53:36 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Er...sight.)
(10:54:18 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (Doh. But we know what you're about to do, right? Pretend I'm just glancing in your general direction.)
(10:54:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: We're all trained military officers. Excitement will take a back seat to decorum, lieutenant.
(10:56:01 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Well, they're still examining the entrance. The underground bit was an OOC remark from me. They'll be heading down there soon, but they don't know what it is, yet.)
(10:56:45 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Oh, and also, though the room says she's in here, apparently Rachel's network disconnected.)
(10:57:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (yuck!)
(10:57:05 PM) Percy left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(10:57:31 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (And there's the room catching up, I guess.)
(10:58:33 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Of course, Admiral, I didn't mean to imply otherwise. I just don't know what the Star Fleet protocol is regarding military safety sweeps in archaeological sites, with regard to documenting positions of any items that need to be moved and doors that need to be opened...?
(10:59:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Due care will be exercised, don't worry. :: smiles ::
(11:00:20 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: smiles back, nervously, then leans forward to look at the cube :: What is it that you've found here?
(11:00:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Obviously a toe-stubbing device, of ancient origin.
(11:00:52 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods sagely :: Oh, clearly.
(11:00:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (T'Kirrrrrrr, PM)
(11:02:02 PM) CdrTKirr: :: turns slowly, eyes on her device :: There are more of them.
(11:02:48 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: How many more?
(11:02:49 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Mehra> Well, simple ultrasonic bombardment has given us a rough image of the interior. It's definitely hollow, and unless I missed my guess...::Looks closer and indicates a fine divide running down the center of the nearest pyramid face.:: Yep, meant to be opened. Here.
(11:03:04 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: crouches down to peer at the cube :: (pms Blackthorne)
(11:03:56 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Mehra> Like I said, no EM whatsoever, so I suspect we'd have a bitch of a time figuring out how one is SUPPOSED to do that. But it should be simple enough to force it open, with the right tools.
(11:04:20 PM) CdrTKirr: :: takes several steps away and looks at her feet before looking back at the screen :: Eleven more appear to be set in a circular pattern.
(11:05:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: That has to relate to the pillar in some way.
(11:07:28 PM) CdrTKirr: < Harper MIA? >
(11:07:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: < Have plans for her actually>
(11:07:53 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Well, from what I can see, the pillar seems to be right in the middle of the circle, so I'd have to agree. :: points to indicate the cube that assaulted the Admiral's toe :: It appears to have been quarried at the same time and from the same quarry as the stone used for the pillar, and the exposed edges are amazingly well-preserved. Very little weathering.
(11:08:09 PM) CdrHarper: :: engrossed in translation ::
(11:09:01 PM) CdrTKirr: We should have a better idea once these are translated.
(11:10:04 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks to Harper ::
(11:10:30 PM) CdrHarper: :: is also presently lying on the ground reading something that's she's dug out with her bare hands ::
(11:11:39 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Okay, on the phone with Rachel. She wants to pass along her apologies, but apparently, the Tramadol currently has her more than a little fuzzy. She needs to lie down for a bit.)
(11:11:45 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: follows T'Kirr's eyes and cringes at dug out thingie ::
(11:12:05 PM) CdrHarper: (part of the pillar, not something separate)
(11:12:19 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: only cringes a little ::
(11:12:46 PM) CdrHarper: :: in fact, her head is in a hole as she's reading a part that was covered by dirt ::
(11:14:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Holds up his right hand in the STOP gesture. :: Hold it, hold it. First thing's first. Is there a seal? If so, how tight?
(11:14:28 PM) CdrTKirr: :: perks eyebrow at Harper ::
(11:15:24 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Mehra> Um...airtight, sir.
(11:15:34 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Nods:: Right.
(11:16:02 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Taps comm badge:: +Blackthorne+ McKnight to base camp, come in please.
(11:16:16 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ Go ahead, Colonel.
(11:16:47 PM) CdrTKirr: :: trudges through brush to Harper to get a closer look at what she's doing ::
(11:17:30 PM) CdrHarper: :: suddenly emerges from the hole, hair full of dirt and twigs :: Eureka! The lightswitch just came on!
(11:18:17 PM) CdrTKirr: Pardon?
(11:19:33 PM) CdrHarper: This pillar has elements of religion, science, art, literature, all in one record. The language is beautiful!
(11:20:29 PM) CdrTKirr: How well do you understand it?
(11:20:35 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ We're at the ruins Kuari spotted, sir, and we've made a full sweep. It's all recorded on our optics, but about the only thing of interest is a pyramid-like structure at the center. It's sealed, but we've determined it's hollow, and has an opening. I'd like to do this by the book, though.
(11:21:09 PM) ColDougMcKnight: The seal is airtight, so I'm going to need emitters for a level 9 containment field. After I get off the horn with you., I'll also be contacting security for the fully sealed suits.
(11:21:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ Prudent measures. Take care not to disturb the positioning of any artifacts.
(11:22:13 PM) CdrHarper: New vocabulary is new vocabulary, but I have the basic syntax down.
(11:23:19 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: makes her way up to Harper and crouches next to her, opposite T'Kirr :: What do you make of it then, Commander?
(11:24:33 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Artifacts...haven't seen much, as I said, but I don't have an eye for that. I'll try to keep our operations confined to as small a perimeter around the structure as possible, though. Good enough?
(11:24:35 PM) CdrHarper: My guess would be a record of some sort, to preserve these cultural and scientific works.
(11:24:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: +McKnight+ Indeed, Colonel.
(11:24:58 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Can you tell what their level of scientific advancement was?
(11:25:05 PM) ColDougMcKnight: +Blackthorne+ Okay, then. I'll keep you posted. McKnight out.
(11:25:09 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: At least, at the time of this carving?
(11:26:35 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ACTION> Within the next ten minutes, a field has been erected to prevent the spread of any long-dormant alien super pathogens they may release, and those within the field are kitted up with sealed armor suits and extra O2 in hopes that they too can weather it. That just leaves the engineer going to work carefully with the cutting laser.
(11:27:27 PM) CdrHarper: They mention flying, but I think there may have been a native animal they flew on. Unless their technology was radically different... they do mention concentrated light, so that would likely be a laser.
(11:31:16 PM) CdrTKirr: Coordinate with Science. I want a preliminary report by seventeen hundred.
(11:31:46 PM) CdrHarper: Yes ma'am.
(11:31:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (five minute warning!)
(11:32:39 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I'd like to volunteer to personally be your Science liaison on this one, Commander. :: tries, and fails, not to sound too eager ::
(11:33:52 PM) CdrHarper: :: grins :: How can I turn down such an eager volunteer?
(11:34:18 PM) CdrHarper: :: idly picks twigs from her hair ::
(11:34:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I wonder if they knew their civilization was dying, and tried to perserve their culture?
(11:34:53 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: bounces up and down giddily, just once, then regains her composure :: Where shall we begin?
(11:35:13 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: It's possible that this is not representative of the apex of their cultural advancement.
(11:36:14 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Consider if Earth had become a dead planet in the past thousand years, and the first thing explorers found were the pyramids or some other ancient site.
(11:37:20 PM) CdrHarper: Definitely a valid consideration.
(11:37:55 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: At a nod from the engineer, marines affix vacuum seal handles to either side of the entrance, and slowly but surely, three soldiers on either side manage to uncover a dark shaft leading down. About a hundred yards, McKnight himself estimates after dropping a pair of glow sticks down the hole. Tricorder scan confirms that's not too far off. ::

(11:38:53 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay! Hopefully, I'll be able to figure out the site, and take a look down the rabbit hole before we pick back up next week!
(11:39:02 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Also, paused.
(11:39:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Nice sim!
(11:39:20 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: I hereby promise to write some logs naming some people and details from my science staff, but NOT until after NaNoWriMo is over
(11:39:34 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: The only trick so far I can offer, is on the editor, to click the kitchen sink button on the toolbar.
(11:39:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Then, if you use the paste in from word option, you can paste pre-formatted text in from another program and it'll keep your italics.
(11:40:06 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: And other such formatting.
(11:40:29 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: To save formatting from a google doc, save it as html first, then paste into that window.
(11:40:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: The editor is just fine for a highlight or journal entry, but a real log would demand something more full featured, like goodocs.
(11:41:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Oh, if you all want to comment on the It Works! post, that'd be handy
(11:41:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I have to approve your first comment for you to be able too comment
(11:41:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Then you'll be able to comment without approval
(11:41:49 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: So I'd like to get that out of the way
(11:42:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Or you can comment on something else if you want :)
(11:43:20 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Okay, I need to go cook and write and write and cook
(11:43:28 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: See y'all next week <3
(11:43:50 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Night!
(11:43:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: G'night!
(11:44:32 PM) LtJGAlexisWright left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(11:44:54 PM) CdrTKirr: Happy Thanksgiving!
(11:45:15 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Happy Thanksgiving!
(11:58:39 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Okay, commented.
(11:58:46 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Approved even!
(11:59:23 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Sweet.
(11:59:25 PM) CdrTKirr: Cool. =)
(11:59:46 PM) CdrHarper left the room (quit: Exit: ajax IRC Client).
(12:01:27 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Approval's only for the first comment someone ever posts, so that only has to happen once.
(12:01:59 AM) ColDougMcKnight: Nice.
(12:03:19 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Do you use RSS?
(12:05:12 AM) ColDougMcKnight: Don't even know what it is, so probably not.
(12:05:43 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Do you perhaps use a personalized google home page with news feeds? If so, those are RSS
(12:06:03 AM) ColDougMcKnight: Ah. Sorry, but no.
(12:07:19 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: It's a really nice way to keep up with updates on your favorite sites.
(12:07:43 AM) ColDougMcKnight: Right, I've heard of those, sure. Never used them, though.
(12:08:27 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: The site doesn't email you when a new post comes up, so it's something you might want to look into.
