The chatroom is open.

First topic for today: "What do you believe, and why do you believe it?"

Other topics will be taken up by request. Please feel free to suggest topics in the "Suggested Topics" thread. I'm making a list...

We called an early end to today's chat, but I'm keeping the room open in case people want to start up again, later.

I'll be coming back to the office to check the chatroom from time to time, but for now I've got some new lights to wire up in our dining room.

Bye for now...

Dear Vila:

Thanks very much for the effort in posting up the log. As you may know,I was involved with a great discussion on JMenge's Rippercast, along with Mike Covell and special guest Robert McLaughlin, author of the seminal book on Ripper photographs, The First Jack The Ripper Victim Photographs from Zwerghaus Books ( 2005 ).

Unfortunately, it ran at the same time the organized Chat was being conducted.

Thanks again,Vila.

Oh, you're quite welcome, Howard. It's no problem for me to spell-check and post the chat logs.

Actually, there's not much difference between doing that and proofreading/correcting my written fiction. In fact, chat logs are good practice for proofing my writing. In both cases, looking for things that the spell-check ignores is vital.

Of course, I do leave some of the so-called "flaws" intact - Just to indicate the different personalities involved. For instance, some chatters rarely use capital letters, others rarely use periods at the end of a sentence. Others, myself in particular, wind up making typos that the spell-checks miss. I often type "of" for "or", or "is" for "in", for example.

As I said in the preface to today's chat log, I think the big reason that more people were too busy to attend today's chat was the recent server crash over on the Casebook. Another reason was JMenge's podcast recording, as you said. Those are very interesting. Everyone involved is doing a great job on them. Keep up the good work!

All right, it's been two hours and no one has shown up. I'm going to close the chatroom and enjoy the rest of the day with my family. See you next time, I hope!
