New Year Chat 1999 - Awards

* JennV nods re the Sime~Gen Inc.
JennV: Do we want to start logging now, or later?
KLitman: I started logging already
JennV: 'k
JL: It's only 1:30 -- official log starts at 2, but who KNOWS.
JennV: Karen, you'd know. Who has written fiction for Sime~Gen this year?
* JennV ooohs. "I Just thought up a nomination for fiction."
JL: Jenn - was there anything in that batch of email I must answer NOW before the CHAT. I may spend tomorrow writing a column that's past deadline for submission.
JennV: "Doubtful Document" and "Malachite Mouse."
JennV: Nope. Nothing you /need/ to know for the Chat.
KLitman: oh yes!! Document and Mouse
MargeR: Light of Zeor....
KLitman: That too.
JennV: I wrote Big Sister and Killroom, but Document and Mouse are REALLY good. Who else wrote stuff this year?
* JennV nods. Light of Zeor.
JL: The problem with fiction awards is that EVERYTHING is worthy and I don't want a popularity contest around our fiction.
KLitman: John Cowan "Alarms of Struggle and Flight"
JennV: No. Definately not.
JL: If it's gone through me and Jean, it's at least Hugo quality (not kidding or exaggerating there).
MargeR: Then give everyone who gets and "authorized" story on the web an award
KLitman: now that makes sense
JL: Marge - did that WONDROUS thing that I did a Klyd speech for.
KLitman: It took her a long time to finish it.
MargeR: Yea Sectuib, you have a wicked red pen
JL: I can't recall the title.
MargeR: Light of Zeor...
MargeR: Klyd's speech still makes me cry
JL: Oh, ok, yeah LIGHT OF ZEOR -- perfect title and I can't remember it. I just remember the EMOTIONAL IMPACT.
KLitman: it does the same thing to me.
KLitman: thank you..... I helped Marge with the title.
JL: Oh, I agree MARY LOU deserves a marylou award just for living through all that -- and now she's getting married!
JL: Maybe that's it -- our fiction award will be named The Mary Lou?
KLitman: yep, and she was sick through the holidays
KLitman: Mary Lou has been with us a LONG TIME
JennV: She and I. Our room was the Darkover Infirmary.
JennV: Mind you, so was JL's.
KLitman: ML was ill during New Years and Christmas too
JennV: Ewww. I was spared /that/
JL: Mary Lou comes accross as about 8 ft tall - and she's more like one of my Boxmaster characters, Yran, in stature.
JennV: Mary Lou is Sime build. I'm Gen build.
KLitman: yep
JL: Karen -- I found Katie's go-through of your chart yesterday, and put it in the computer this morning -- guess what -- Katie nailed every number to at least 3 decimal places (by hand -- not even a hand-held calculator!)
* JennV listens to the kookaburras waking up
KLitman: WHAT?????
KLitman: I can't believe it.
JL: Yep - that's Katie.
KLitman: Please send me a copy of the chart. I can't find my old one.
KLitman: Got lost in 20 years of moving about. Katie always was amazing with the astrological charts.
JennV: Is this transfer/selyn mechanics stuff? If so, and if someone can get it to someone with a scanner - or, you put it in the computer?
JennV: Oh. Astrological. :)
JL: Anyway, I still don't understand your chart (the CP part of it), but you are the only one I've done so far (ever) who has a PERFECT Grand Cross formation. Grand Cross does not equal CP. But I think that's the source of whateveritis that I admire so much about you -- that superb STRENGTH OF SPIRIT. Also you have the 12th House Sun and Mercury (the Mercury is the source of the CP problem but I don't understand it yet) and that is the source of that P
KLitman: then why is my life usually such a mess......
JL: So I wanted to ask your permission to use your chart to teach that Karmic Astrology seminar I have to do at Ecumenicon this year (yeah, THIS YEAR! '99 -- I already wrote the date correctly once.)
KLitman: of course. I'd love to be there, but it's unlikely
JL: I think it's the Pluto -- and I have more to say about your current and upcoming transits. We can e-talk another time -- people are arriving!
KLitman: fine....private e-mail or later will do nicely.
*** MargeR sets mode: +o Margaret
JL: Karen -- was that "of course" reply to my request for permission?
KLitman: Yes, you have permission.
JL: OK, but I'll take your name off. (not that anyone there would likely know you)
KLitman: that I appreciate
JL: The point is the way the Grand Cross sets up a pattern of events.
JL: T-Cross examples I have galore -- only one Grand Cross
JennV: Speaking of patterns of events - if I may -
* KLitman nods
JennV: WHY is it that events which occur within my family in late January are always ON the 23rd. not NEAR, but ON.
JL: Yeah, enough chatter. Jenn?
JennV: My grandmother's sister's birthday. Joanna's birthday (Joanna was Dancer's fiancee when I met him, later married my boyfriend of the time.)
JennV: And Ken & Rich's wedding was on my 15th birthday.
DonJarami: Starting early?
DonJarami: Greetings!
JennV: And two other events which I can't think of right now. The 23rd. My birthday. Not the days around it. Just always ON it.
KLitman: Just talking for now.
JennV: Heya Don.
JL: I didn't know that. Let's see if I have the capacity to pull up my astro program. This morning it wouldn't let go of memory so I had to reboot before coming here. If I crash off, I'll be back as soon as AOL will answer the phone (AOL is my fast connection).
Margaret: HI
DonJarami: Ahhhhhhh.......
DonJarami: Hiya!
* JennV smiles.
JennV: Doesn't have to be right now.
DonJarami: I rebooted before coming on, just to start with clean RAM.
JennV: It's just when it turned out that Ken and Rich's anniversary was the 23rd AGAIN, it became one too many and tripped my 'hey, this is NOT coincidence' alarm.
MargeR: utoh top page is broken again
JennV: Hi Don. We're talking mysticism briefly. :)
DonJarami: GREAT!
KLitman: Don, I can send that to you later in the log.
* JennV grumps and goes and looks. What kind of broken?
DonJarami: Thanks, Karen.
KLitman: any time.
DonJarami: I think most of the people in the house are going to go out. That way they leave me to my chat. :-)
MargeR: the entry moved giff is not there it's "box" is off to the left
MargeR: there is no background color. The only other thing on the page is the last updated bar
MargeR: it looks horrid
KLitman: The only "people" here are my 7 cats. I turned off AIM, and I'm putting on my answering machine.
* JennV nods. Looks like the image has broken. I'll check the page source.
MargeR: k Just thought I would mention it.
JL: JENN'S MYSTERY SOLVED -- her sun is at 3 deg AQ and on Jan 23 the sun goes from 2AQ to 3AQ -- 2AQ is her 8th House cusp (other people's resources/ inheretance / other people's VALUES -- i.e. family shit) -- I didn't think that would be so EASY.
DonJarami: But cats can be very disruptive to keyboarding.
* JennV chokes on the page source. Gah. I can't /read/ that! Microsloth strikes again.
MargeR: oh dear hugs
KLitman: the cats are all sleeping or in another room for now
* JennV blinks at JL. So other people around me get their significant events in late January pushed around to the 23rd?
JennV: Or whatever mystical way you want to put that? :)
*** MargeR sets mode: +o Seanara
Seanara: Hi, folks
MargeR: Hi Coyote
KLitman: Hello again. Haven't seen you in a while G:
DonJarami: Hi Coyote!
Seanara: About eight or nine hours, is it? g:
Margaret: hi
JL: top page has not been UPDATED OR UPLOADED recently -- how could it get broken?
Seanara: Hi, Don!
MargeR: Yawn! Anybody care if I go back to bed? Been up since 6 AM
DonJarami: We thought we'd better get to bed so we could be up by Chat.
KLitman: Hey Marge, I didn't hit the pillow until 4:30
MargeR: bad girl
Seanara: Ditto here
KLitman: naah. You know me by now.
JennV: I don't know, JL.
MargeR: I got up early to fight with Geocities....
KLitman: Talking to people....since we weren't gaming last night
JennV: I can look into it later.
MargeR: Sorry to spoil your night Jenn, but I thought you would want to know
DonJarami: The page looks ok to me.
JL: Jenn -- well, they are karmically related to you. But it's more that you NOTICE than that they HAPPEN TO THEM. But a family group is usually karmically interlinked -- I call it karmic velcro.
* JennV shrugs. "it's not strictly my problem, unless it /is/ a server fault.
* JennV nods to JL. "That makes sense."
JL: I woke UP at 4 AM.
KLitman: poor JL, I didn't go to sleep until 4:30
JL: Whoever had the problem with top page, go reload or refresh and tell me what happens.
JL: I doubt there's anything to look into - just a random problem. But I'll take care of it.
MargeR: If I had an ounce of brains I would go back to bed, since at 5 I have to go out our 22nd facility and start some tandem backups gag!
JennV: Ok. Refresh the page..
JL: "Karmic velcro" is what i call it when a series of mid-point trees are interlaced between two or more people.
KLitman: JL --You should realize by now that you're giving me a computer was one of the "worst" things you could have done
JL: I don't know any astrological researcher who is studying MIDPOINT RELATIONSHIPS between people, and I won't be that person -- trust me on that.
DonJarami: Uh oh...
JL: I'm getting that impression, Karen -- it changed your life. Do we know a DATE when that happened? I don't. Except it was before Katie's wedding.
MargeR: I did a reload its still broken
KLitman: Shore Leave con of 1996, that weekend of the hurricane.
KLitman: I think it was 96
JL: The image-icon is broken, Marge?
JL: Does the LINK under that image work?
* JennV sighs. "Ok Marge. We'll figure /something/ out."
MargeR: no the link doesn't work either
MargeR: I looked at the code. The link not working makes no sense. it looks coded right to me. But then I can look right at a massive typo and not see it. Sigh
JL: I see the entry-moved gif and it's "rightclick" shows it is ON itself.
JL: And the link-click takes you to Eliza's top page.
JL: Karen - '96 sounds right.
DonJarami: Which code isn't working?
KLitman: yes..... you can look up the date for Shore Leave then.
MargeR: hum wonder why it's not working for me
* JennV shakes her head. "The page isn't working for me, either."
DonJarami: By link under the image, do you mean the link when clicking the first image?
JennV: And I don't know Microsoft's style-sheet code well enough to figure out why it isn't working. But then, I haven't looked at this top page before.
KLitman: JL --- Mike Giroux brought this computer to me in August of 97
JL: Oh, Karen -- that was exactly when Saturn trined your Sun -- you were DUE for a boost. (and more responsibility)
* KLitman needs to go and hide.
JL: And URANUS (all things electrical) was exactly conj your Mars which rules your 4th -- Things Electrical brought HOME.
DonJarami: Why, Karen?
KLitman: Like you didn't give me enough to do BEFORE
JennV: So I'd say this page probably never worked for this browser. Another Microsoft success!!!!
MargeR: The code looks right to me as far as the link is concerned. The img has some stuff I don't understand but that shouldn't affect the link itself
JL: Yes, Don -- I meant what happens when you click the missing-image rectangle.
MargeR: It was working fine for me the other day
JL: I have the link fully operational. I just checked it on AOL's browser.
JennV: Oh well. I can't figure it out without sitting down and fighting it. The permissions are right on the server.
JennV: So it's not an easy problem. I can *either* be at the chat, *or* try and figure it out.
JennV: Ok. If it works for some browsers, it's not a server problem. It's got to be in the page. I think.
MargeR: If I left click to get the popup menu I can look at the image which makes no sense at all
KLitman: I'd say figure it out later....
JL: I bet Marge is just not fully loading the page somehow.
* JennV screams and leaves.
MargeR: I did a reload twice
JL: Marge, what happens when you right-click to look at the code under the page?
MargeR: You don't do that with netscape I have a menu option for viewing page source
JL: I think Jenn is real TIRED -- this is a ridiculous time for her, and she's spent three days making URLS for us.
MargeR: a right click normally brings up the link but I'm not seeing the link
JL: Well, what does the page-source view say to you? It should look okay.
MargeR: that's the puzzling part. The a href statement looks ok to me.
KLitman: The page loads fine in AOL's browser. I'm checking netscape now
JL: Hi Jenn - Marge is using Netscape.
Paulab: Hi Guys! Happy New Year!!
JL: Hi Paulab -- who are you? This is Jacqueline Lichtenberg
MargeR: Hi Liza
LadyEliza: good morning
Paulab: Why JL I'm a huge SG Fan! Wonderful to say HI!
JennV: Guys, I *cannot* fix it in five minutes. It looks like the sort of problem which would take step-by-step studying of the page to figure out. OR rewriting it without using one of the page editing programs that puts so much spurious code in.
Margaret: hi
KLitman: Netscape does have the broken link.... definately
JennV: So please, either drop the subject or reassure me that no one expects ME to do something about it NOW.
MargeR: I hate those
Paulab: Hi Margaret, How are you?
* JennV waves to Paulah.
MargeR: we don't want you to fix it now
JL: Jenn - Marge was seeing the image before and the link -- it just disappeared, but the page hasn't been altered since the 30th.
JennV: Thank you.
Margaret: fine Paulab
LadyEliza: we don't expect you to do anything about it now
LadyEliza: what are you talking about?
LadyEliza: lol
Paulab: Margaret, Still with WVU?
KLitman: It may have something to do with Netscape.... because it works right in AOL's browser.
MargeR: It was fine say 3 days ago...I think....unless it was at work I was looking at it I have IE there
JennV: Jacqueline, I heard you. I looked for the obvious causes - server problems - and found none. I have no earthly idea what is wrong.
Margaret: Yes
JL: Hi Eliza -- we were talking astrology and page design.
DonJarami: Hi Eliza! Hi Paulab! Hi Tarana!
MargeR: Forget about it for now Jenn. After a good sleep it will come to you
Seanara: I'm logging
KLitman: I've been logging....!!
JennV: Karen's been logging. :)
MargeR: Karen and I both are Relax Sectuib
JL: Jenn - we'll debug page-image another time.
Seanara: ~~soothing nager~~
* JennV waves to tarana
DonJarami: I'm logging too.
kayte: Hi!
LadyEliza: they are connected?
JL: Page-image is not Jenn's problem since it's not a server problem. Marge and I will fix it.
JennV: Ok. Thanks.
MargeR: We will???????? Shen Sectuib I have enough trouble with my own pages...
JL: GOOD - we need more than one person logging in case people lose the connection. A continuous log can be recreated somehow if we grab it all.
DonJarami: Hi logging, decided to finally leave the Headwaters Forest? ;-)
LadyEliza: I'd say that several people are JL
KLitman: I have two windows logging at one time Jacqueline.
* JennV relaxes, and settles down to listen. It's start-of-official-business-time, yes? Or do we wait to see if other people come on in?
JL: Jean isn't here yet.
KLitman: On two different drives, and two different servers
LadyEliza: I mean that several people are logging - not that several people are JL
* JennV thumps forehead with hand. Waits for Jean. :)
MargeR: its only 6 after and Tigues aren't noted for being on time WEG
LadyEliza: Don't worry about it jl :)
DonJarami: Several people are JL? It reminds me that my ex wife thought a certain SF author was actually a Wiccan coven writing as a group.
Logging: shusssh - I'm working
KLitman: Jean signed on last night to check her connections, because I talked with her.
JL: Hmmm -- that's a point. On the other hand, she's using heliographics instead of the net these days.
MargeR: Gee you mean this isn't a cult?
Seanara: Who was that author, Don?
Seanara: Not the Farrars?
LadyEliza: maybe she slept in? oh - it's day there isn't it
LadyEliza: there she is
JL: Ah Jean!!!!
DonJarami: Speak of the Tigue!
MargeR: Hi Jean
JL: Good now we can start the official MEETING.
Jean: Hi
JennV: SPeak of the TIGUE?
JL: Everyone finish saying hello and settle into your seats for the duration.
Jean: Took me a bit to get connected
* Paulab waves and settles down.
DonJarami: No, Seanara. I forget the author, but she's married to Robert Asprin, so unless RA is married to a Wiccan Coven, the author is actually a single person. :-)
* Seanara laughs
JL: I hereby call to order the THIRD OFFICIAL Chat of Sime~Gen ONLINE -- SILENCE EVERYONE.
* JennV marries a Wiccan Coven.
JL: Check your email -- I just posted to the List a copy of the list of NOMINATIONS for Awards. Our first order of business because it's the most important item is AWARDS for all these hard working folks.
* Jean Meeting comes to order
JL: We have at least 3 separate awards to Award (non-competitively) -- The Digen, The Nager, and The Techton
JL: Nominations are now in order for THE 1999 DIGEN AWARD FOR MERITORIOUS SERVICE
Logging: Shane Miller
JL: Do I hear any nominations?
JL: (I can't see your hands go up unless you type something)
LadyEliza: errr - Shane Miller
* JennV raises a hand.
JL: Shane Miller is added to the nominations. (who is Shane Miller -- Eliza's brother?)
JL: Jenn?
MargeR: Is this in addition to the nominations in your message?
LadyEliza: Clarification needed = what's the nager award?
JL: And includes Nominations in my message -- which were mostly by me and Karen.
LadyEliza: yes - my brother
JennV: Dancer. I know he technically comes under 'techton', but he's also heroically put up with a lot for the RPG.
JL: Eliza -- see your Listmail. Ah, yes, OK, one of my additions to the nominations was "Eliza's brother" but I didn't know the name.
JennV: "he's STILL not reread the 'old' S~G books OR read the 'new' ones, specifically so that he faces his First Reader job for the RPG without knowing & understanding the world completely.
JL: OK, so far in nomination for the Digen we have Shane Miller and Dancer Vesperman
JennV: And somehow, despite that, manages to help solve technical hassles for the RPG & suchlike.
* KLitman suggests you also remember our original YoYo awards the zines gave out
Logging: John Cowan for a Yoyo for CZ
JL: Nominations still open for the Digen Award. There are two in Nomination -- are there any additions? The List of meritorious servants is quite long. Any further additions?
* JennV grins. "Mind you, he's VERY appreciative of his nice new copy of City of a Million Legends." :)
JL: Current nominations are for the Digen only.
* Seanara nominates Karen Litman for her help to beginning writers
JL: Karen Litman -- is there a second? (one assumed Shane and Dancer got seconded -- shouldn't have -- now we have three nominees, do we have 3 seconds?
Jean: Here is the list:
JennV: Do you need people from the email re-nominated?

JennV: RBW for scanning and such..
Jean: They are not assigned to any particular award.
* JennV laughs. "I'll second Karen's nomination of RBW, then."
* Seanara nominates Don for his work on Rathor
JennV: "I'll also nominate Torun. I'd rather not nominate any of the Worldcon folks, I wasn't there.
JL: Do I hear a second for Don?

KLitman: second for Don

DonJarami: Thank you everyone.

JL: Now on to the Nager Award -- you have my list of nominations via the Listserv. Is there anyone on that List or off it that anyone here would like to place in nomination for the FIRST ANNUAL NAGER AWARD (suggested and named by Jenn Vesperman).
tngirl: hello

Jean: hi
DonJarami: What is the Nager Award again?
Margaret: Jenn herself, of course
KLitman: "Social Glue that makes Fandom Spin" is what's on the e-mail
* JennV blinks at Margaret. I'm not one of the social-glue people. I'm one of the technical-glue people.
JennV: I /think/..
JL: Do I hear nominations for the Nager Award for social-glue mixing.

Margaret: aye
JL: TECHTON AWARD is for service in creating and making available our technical tools (such as our server, the search engine, our private chatroom, the Bulletin Boards).

ECJB: I can't say who to vote for without having gone through all the material, so I must decline, as a loyal fan...
ECJB: I would be doing a DISservice to vote without knowing what I was doing.
* JennV understands, Eric.
KLitman: I already mentioned that Eric.

MargeR: aye
Paulab: aye
bgray: aye for Cheryl
LadyEliza: also as someone who is

JL: Silver yo-yo award.

JL: Karen - you had a nomination?
LadyEliza: aye for Gossie
Margaret: hi Leigh
KLitman: Who is responsible for my sitting here for the past week...... ECJB helped me get the monitor

LadyEliza: hold on
LadyEliza: there was another nomination JL
LadyEliza: Kaas for creating the serch engine
LadyEliza: Fishy seconded it

* Jean sends a nageric WAKE UP to JL
kayte: what is the Silver Yoyo for? (for those of us who are new to the SG fan community)
Jean: It's not crosstalk,
KLitman: I did that nomination more than once.
JL: Karen I'm waiting for you
Jean: You left out a Techton Award
KLitman: I DID THAT JL!!!! I did that a number of times.
Jean: Jacqueline, you left Kaas out.
Jean: JL, you left Kaas out.
Jean: Jacqueline, you left Kaas out of the Techton Awards.

JennV: I suspect JL is lagged again.
LadyEliza: JL - is lagged
JL: Eric Berlin is nominated for the Silver Yo-Yo (a CZ award) for getting Karen's monitor.
JennV: Kayte: while we wait for JL to unlag. The Silver Yoyo is an award for service to .. I think to one of the fanzines. Karen?
JL: Do I hear a second?
JennV: Second.
JL: The Yo-Yo awards are for tasks that end up in a lot of backing and forthing.
LadyEliza: second
JL: Someone else want to chair this vote?
bgray: nominate JennV for YoYo award
KLitman: Just wait for the lag to clear
JennV: AH
JL: Jean - if you're not lagged go ahead and collect votes on Eric Berlin, then we'll go back and add to the TECHTON vote if necessary.
JL: It's out of order, but what-the-hey this is FANDOM.
* JennV blinks at Bruce.
JennV: I /was/ going to volunteer to chair this vote, but I'm not sure I should.
JennV: Not if I'm one of the nominees. Jean? Do you want to chair this one?
Jean: I'm back
Jean: Was trying to get through privately.
ECJB: Back...
Jean: Jacqueline seems to be out of it.
Margaret: Jean, JL wants you to chair this vote, then backtrack to Tech-ton
JennV: Jean: we're collecting nominations for Silver Yoyo. We have Eric, for Karen's monitor, and me - nominated, no second, by Bgray.
JennV: The intent is then to backtrack and pick up Kaas for the Techton for the Search engine.
Seanara: Second Jenn
JennV: Bgray, was I nominated for any specific task, or just general back-and-forthing?
Margaret: yes,after this vote
LadyEliza: I'll vote for ECJB
Jean: JL is more than 2 minutes lagged.
JennV: Thanks, Seanara.
JL: I'm back -- If Jean's taking the vote, I vote for Eric Berlin for the Silver Yo-Yo (or make that a second if necessary).
fishydu: aye
Jean: We're lost--the last I heard, I was supposed to collect votes for Eric
JennV: We're not voting yet, Eliza. I think we're still collecting nominations for the Yoyo.
bgray: overall yo-yo-ing (is that a word? :-)
Margaret: Aye for Eric
bgray: Nominations are still open I think.
JennV: Ok. MY understanding of status. Nominations not yet closed for yoyo, nominees so far: Eric (nom Karen, forgotten second.)

Jean: Are we voting or nominating?
JennV: Any further nominations for Silver Yoyo?

JennV: Ok. I'll (reluctantly) chair for the moment, though I'll get someone to chair when I'm being voted for.
JennV: Any further nominations for Silver Yoyos?
Margaret: move to close nominatioms
Jean: There--that should clear this channel for a moment.

fishydu: sure, aye
JennV: Eric has a yoyo. :) Congratulations, Eric.
JennV: Karen or Margaret or someone, please take the vote for the nomination for me. Note that I refuse to vote for myself, so that's one down aside from the chairperson.
