I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. -- Atrus

More Bugs

When iota and I played Uru last Saturday we encountered several problems, mainly with Eder Kemo and Eder Gira, just like when I played with local_character.

The first problem I encountered was on two occasions where iota did not show up in my Buddies/Age players lists (the ones on the left side of the screen).  When I logged off and then back on again this problem fixed itself.

Also on two occasions my avvie got stuck during a share book, both a Relto one and an Eder Gira (from Eder Kemo) one.  Eventually I just had iota send me an invite to Gira and I resealed all the vents so I could meet her at the waterfalls.

The glitch mess continued there, where, as before, the fireflies linked without her, or she linked but the fireflies didn't.

Fireflies linked and got stuck
Lastly, when iota returned to Gira I couldn't see her avatar, which was kind of funny because she was moving one of those baskets and it seemed like it was being tossed around by a poltergeist.  I feel as though this may have something to do with the day/night sequence.  I forgot to ask if it was daytime when she linked back, just to see if that could be a problem.  If so, that's frustrating, isn't it?  I don't want us both having to link back and forth.  It was annoying enough when I did it on my own.  Is there anyone, who may or may not read this blog, who encounters this same problem?

I also Net 6'ed a couple of times.

All those troubles aside, iota made some pretty awesome progress in that she figured out what to do with that basket.  She still has to work on getting those damn fireflies across it and she is determined to see this Age completed.  I wouldn't hold it against her if she did tequila shots after she does complete it!  I may even do tequila shots!  Although with me that's playing with fire, so maybe not.  She asked me how long it took me to finish Gira/Kemo and I said a looooong time.

Hmm...I wonder if I should give away the Relto Page in Kemo.  That's a hard one to spot.

On another note, I had a weird dream this morning around 5am when I drifted off to sleep again after my cats went crazy and jumped on me.  I dreamt that someone posted some rude comments about me on the Cyan forums, writing in reply to someone else saying I didn't understand some joke and that it was unsurprising because I can't solve puzzles even when they're obvious.  I replied "Awww why so mean?" And then I edited that post to say "EXCUSE ME?  The joke was in Spanish and I wasn't paying attention at the time, so I didn't know what they said."  I woke up and was still in that stage where dreams seem like they really happened.  I was pretty pissed off and started raging to myself until I realized it was just a dream, and one of my usually vivid ones at that.  I love that I'm hot-blooded even during sleep haha!!

But I am pretty dumb when it comes to solving puzzles, so maybe that fictional poster has something there.  Even if he is a jerk.
