There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    I'm in too! It would be good, to find a way to stop being an orange cloud. (when i've installed it - all was fine) And I have some problem with sound in Kitely...With 70 Mbit/s speed internet connection, sometimes sound is interrupted. There is no such problem in Hangouts or Skype... :-w

    Thanks, @Xeb. :)
    I'll be there.
    @Aleksey‌, 70Mbit/s speed?
    I've just tested mine; I've only 50 Mbit/s download speed and 3.75 Mbit/s upload speed.
    Could it be your graphic card problem?

    Great to see that a few are becoming permanent quiz players. :D

    You may like to change your settings in Kitely, so that it is less resource hungry, @Aleksey.

    If anyone needs a screen share session on Kitely or Second Life settings, I now feel competent enough to make recommendations. :)

    btw Lynne, I think Space Station in Kitely was cool, more awesome than this "Nature" all around now...Let's turn it back...or better!!! Let's do there something futuristic, technological....incredible!!! as "Kitely: year 2585"......OooohhhhhHHHHH, it will be a masterpiece!!!! George Lucas will envy !!! B-)

    Or, wait... here is another scenario - "in the style of Pripyat". The abandoned city, empty streets, the buildings around in the style of Soviet-time...the danger labels and radiation contamination around...just like in the film "Life after people" on the History channel....
    And here we have a Quiz!!! Ha !!! HA HA!!! Oh God !! It would be the coolest thing of all the coolest things!!! \m/

    Hi Aleksey, You build it and I'll load it. ;)

    Damn! I can't get that quiz(z) word right even though I turned it into a quiz question last Monday.

    It was an intense quiz competition today in Kitely.
    Only three participants, but it didn't make it less interesting. :)
    The golden medal is for Xeb with 16 points.
    The silver is for Aleksey with 12 points and the consolation prize is for Fernando (6 points) who had to leave before finishing the quiz.
    Me, I got the Crash prize from Kitely and had to relog and reboot in the middle of the competition. =))
    Thank you for coming, guys and see you in the next quiz.

    You'll have to make it more challenging next time, or you'll end up with only tie breaks @april‌. Thanks for hosting it. :D

    @Aleksey‌, see you in the next game.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,671 mod
    @xeb and @april could you build in some questions I sent you.
    I am sorry I couldn`t join the event, maybe next time.
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,493
    Nobody selected the history topic on Monday, but I love your questions and your special touch to formulate them, @Hermine‌. An example is when you start with "What brave man..." The word "brave" made me laugh because I think some player might think the question is going to be tricky. :D
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,373 mod
    I add some of your questions to my collection, @Hermine‌ with some changes in the way of questioning and answering.
    I'm not sure if I used them today though.
    Thanks for sending me anyway. :)
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 10,373 mod
    @Xeb, apparently you are all smarter after three quizzes? :))
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,671 mod
    @xeb, were my questions really that odd, or made I too many mistakes?
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,493
    Hermine, I love your style. I have just added my personal touch to them. Would you like to see what they look like now? (I can email you the file.)
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 6,671 mod
    @Xeb, yes please, be so good.
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,493
    I feel good, so good, so good. Feel free to get back to me about the changes I made @Hermine.
