(06/24 11:28:42) Dark Stranger: And what does the report indicate?
(06/24 11:28:42) TomahnaGuy: Ok, then please continue
(06/24 11:28:46) Trevor1013: Cool
(06/24 11:28:47) Dr. Kodama: Regarding structural integrity of the building that collapsed last month.
(06/24 11:29:00) TomahnaGuy: I see
(06/24 11:29:03) Dr. Kodama: The building was sound. There was absolutely no previous damage.
(06/24 11:29:13) Whisper: Hi folks
(06/24 11:29:22) Dr. Kodama: Damage was not caused by any earthquake or seismic activitiy.
(06/24 11:29:33) Dr. Kodama: There is zero evidence for such a cause.
(06/24 11:29:37) Kimmie: hmmm.....
(06/24 11:29:41) Erik: By a Bahro then?
(06/24 11:29:42) TomahnaGuy: Ohh!
(06/24 11:29:46) Zymmin: then what caused the collapse?
(06/24 11:30:00) Dr. Kodama: In other words, it has been concluded that the building was structurally sound up to the point of its collapse and we do not know what caused the collapse.
(06/24 11:30:16) TomahnaGuy: What do you predict caused the collapse?
(06/24 11:30:16) Dr. Kodama: Offcially, we are not speculating on causes.
(06/24 11:30:20) Kimmie: how strange....
(06/24 11:30:21) ireenquench: Interesting. What kind of damage was it then that you deducted that?
(06/24 11:30:21) TomahnaGuy: tongue.gif
(06/24 11:30:22) Simon_Bitdiddle: Were there indications that the walls were weakened by tool or by other means?
(06/24 11:30:25) Kaelri: Can you identify the physical origin of whatever force caused the damage?
(06/24 11:30:33) Dr. Kodama: Unofficially, I think it's obvious.
(06/24 11:30:35) rosamund23: sabatoge
(06/24 11:30:39) TomahnaGuy: Bahro?
(06/24 11:30:41) Erik: I understand...
(06/24 11:30:41) Trevor1013: maybe it was the symbols?
(06/24 11:30:50) TomahnaGuy: Please say what that is Mr Kodama
(06/24 11:30:51) Ai'ron: Cheese?
(06/24 11:31:11) Dr. Kodama: The creatures.
(06/24 11:31:17) TomahnaGuy: The bahro?
(06/24 11:31:23) Yellowdog: where they Bahro for sure?
(06/24 11:31:23) Erik: who else, TG?
(06/24 11:31:28) TomahnaGuy: smile.gif
(06/24 11:31:37) TomahnaGuy: Is that definate?
(06/24 11:31:38) Dr. Kodama: As sure as we can be.
(06/24 11:31:42) ireenquench: A question... when the rescue team broke through the floor... did they by any chance damage the symbol that had been seen on the second floor in the proess?
(06/24 11:31:45) TomahnaGuy: Ok
(06/24 11:31:46) Dr. Kodama: No, it is only my opinion.
(06/24 11:31:56) Dr. Kodama: Off the record. Unofficial.
(06/24 11:31:59) TomahnaGuy: Is it determines how they did it?
(06/24 11:32:05) Dr. Kodama: I do not speak for the findings of the report.
(06/24 11:32:06) Ttreb: Dr. Kodama, did the same force also cause the original crack as caused the later collapse?
(06/24 11:32:09) Dr. Kodama: In that regard.
(06/24 11:32:11) Calliope: but why?
(06/24 11:32:26) TomahnaGuy: Have you determined the intentions of the bahro that did this?
(06/24 11:32:28) Simon_Bitdiddle: Dr. Kodama, have there been other attacks on Explorers or DRC personel? Off the record, if you like.
(06/24 11:32:38) Dr. Kodama: The symbols were gone when we broke through.
(06/24 11:32:44) Dark Stranger: I see. And how will the DRC act on this report?
(06/24 11:32:51) Dr. Kodama: No other attacks. Except for Sharper, of course.
(06/24 11:32:59) ireenquench: They were gone before?
(06/24 11:33:00) TomahnaGuy: Are there any photos of the symbols mr kodama?
(06/24 11:33:04) Yellowdog: How is Sharper?
(06/24 11:33:06) Dr. Kodama: I am not about to determine Bahro intentions.
(06/24 11:33:25) Dr. Kodama: No photos. They were gone when we arrived.
(06/24 11:33:25) TomahnaGuy: Ok
(06/24 11:33:35) Simon_Bitdiddle: Have there been any indications that the Bahro have been committing any other acts of vandalism to the extent where it poses a safety issue?
(06/24 11:33:37) TomahnaGuy: What about Engberg?
(06/24 11:33:41) TomahnaGuy: Any news on him?
(06/24 11:34:02) Dr. Kodama: There has been no news from Engberg.
(06/24 11:34:14) Dr. Kodama: I assume we will be moving on without him.
(06/24 11:34:21) TomahnaGuy: Who will replace him?
(06/24 11:34:28) Zymmin: Do you believe that he went in search of Phil Henderson?
(06/24 11:34:30) Yellowdog: I will...lol
(06/24 11:34:32) Dr. Kodama: To be determined.
(06/24 11:34:38) Dr. Kodama: No.
(06/24 11:34:40) Dark Stranger: And what other actions will the DRC be taking on this report?
(06/24 11:34:42) Kaelri: Is there a list of candidates?
(06/24 11:34:50) Ttreb: Dr. Kodama, do you have any comment on the geological changes that occurred in Delin a couple of months ago?
(06/24 11:34:57) ireenquench: So who was an eyewitness of the symbol on the second floor. Nick has descibed one to me, I would like to verify. Marie had confirmed it being there.
(06/24 11:35:05) TomahnaGuy: What of the status of Ahnonay? Have the circumstances affected its release?
(06/24 11:35:28) Dr. Kodama: Ah sorry, I'm speaking about the symbols that Wheely spoke of.
(06/24 11:35:34) TomahnaGuy: Ok
(06/24 11:35:40) Dr. Kodama: We did see a symbol when were going in.
(06/24 11:35:50) Dr. Kodama: Perhaps.
(06/24 11:35:58) Ichabod L.: Perhaps?
(06/24 11:36:02) TomahnaGuy: Hat did the symbol look like?
(06/24 11:36:05) TomahnaGuy: what
(06/24 11:36:15) TomahnaGuy: was it similar to the one in Minkata?
(06/24 11:36:19) Dr. Kodama: Ahnonay is currently on schedule.
(06/24 11:36:23) Erik: Dr. Kodama, do you have any idea what that Bahro was trying to tell by saying "Noloben"?
(06/24 11:36:25) TomahnaGuy: ok
(06/24 11:36:28) ireenquench: Ah... yes, thats the one I meant... second floor in pub and same in Negilahn. Did you see it yourself? Can I send you a drawing of it to confirm, please?
(06/24 11:36:59) Dr. Kodama: Noloben is an Age that holds signifigance to them, obviously.
(06/24 11:37:11) TomahnaGuy: Dr. Kodama what is happening in the age of Noloben?
(06/24 11:37:21) Trevor1013: something bad I'd bet
(06/24 11:37:21) Erik: But why would he tell us about Noloben?
(06/24 11:37:41) Dark Stranger: Indeed. Noloben was their age, was it not?
(06/24 11:37:54) Trevor1013: yes their home
(06/24 11:37:57) TomahnaGuy: what of the person The Dni man found on Noloben?
(06/24 11:38:10) D'ean: Kodama, does the symbol you have seen have any resemblance to the symbol in Minkata?
(06/24 11:38:22) Joshi: So how do we actually know that the Bahro come from Noloben, in terms of primary sources?
(06/24 11:38:23) Dr. Kodama: It does.
(06/24 11:38:29) TomahnaGuy: oh
(06/24 11:38:30) Yellowdog: The Great Zero will be fired up Today,.... Do we know the Ramifications that may hold and are there percautions in place for things going wrong?
(06/24 11:38:40) Dr. Kodama: What would go wrong?
(06/24 11:38:47) TomahnaGuy: Mr Kodama when was the last sighting of the man on Noloben?
(06/24 11:38:50) Ttreb: Is anyone with the DRC working on translating Bahro communications?
(06/24 11:38:51) Yellowdog shrugs
(06/24 11:38:56) Dr. Kodama: A long time ago.
(06/24 11:39:00) Dr. Kodama: No.
(06/24 11:39:03) Yellowdog: just curious
(06/24 11:39:15) Kaelri: Dr. Kodama, could you perhaps confirm that the characterization of the Bahro, Nolodeb, etc. in Cyan's production, "Myst V," are consistent with what the DRC knows?
(06/24 11:39:19) TomahnaGuy: when will we be able to see the age of Noloben?
(06/24 11:39:19) Dr. Kodama: Not in an official manner.
(06/24 11:39:22) Kaelri: *Noloben
(06/24 11:39:45) Ttreb: That seems a bit odd, if I may say so. Don't you consider it important to find out what the Bahro are trying to say?
(06/24 11:39:51) Dr. Kodama: Yes.
(06/24 11:39:57) TomahnaGuy: it may affet the restoration
(06/24 11:40:00) ireenquench: I sent you a KI mail, Dr. Kodama. If that is the symbol, please confirm.
(06/24 11:40:42) Dr. Kodama: No mail.
(06/24 11:40:59) Yellowdog: you need to log off...lol
(06/24 11:41:00) TomahnaGuy: Dr. Kodama when will be able to visit Noloben?
(06/24 11:41:02) Tai'lahr: borked KI
(06/24 11:41:09) ireenquench: Resent, its dated 05/23
(06/24 11:41:14) Joorea: Dr. Kodama, what about the new Age called Jalak ?
(06/24 11:41:23) Dr. Kodama: There are no plans to release Noloben.
(06/24 11:41:31) TomahnaGuy: why not?
(06/24 11:41:46) Dr. Kodama: Thank you for your time.
