We had visitors in our Wa He Lut virtual world today, as students from Taholah came with their teachers and had a look around. It was too bad that our students all left eary for a basketball game, and that Montrose just said hello then left to go and coach AND that the Taholans came in two batches beginning before our class started. But, given those limitations, it went well. Whatever that means. No one was killed. I talked to the niece of Ilene and Rox, who teach at the Lut. Josiah is from Taholah and our principal was their phys ed teacher. Basically, since everyone in Indian Country is related, it was like hosting cousins. And I'd met Phil at the workshop, so that was nice.
Wondering WHY however it's so hard to get the Cornell people to understand why I won't teach the children to hotlink. I mean... it's just WRONG. They don't seem to understand and/or know anything about it. Could it be that they are hidden in their ivory tower and don't understand that someone has to pay money for bandwidth? I've said from the beginning that I won't do it and won't teach students to do it.
Alina pointed out that I'd deleted her pink tree AGAIN. I need to explain more fully that it is strange to have a spring-time tree in a scene where everything else is autumnal. I mean, things are confusing enough in there. A blossoming tree next to a golden-leaved tree and a fruit-laden tree just looks freakin' weird to me. Besides, I don't like pink trees.
