Ngoc: oh where the heck is Donny
Ngoc: this is too bad.
Ngoc: Anh TNS I can’t write… I’m stuck big time
Ngoc: let’s do the mac niem separately, i’m trying to write now
TNS: OK Take your time. I am not going to bother you until you finish
Ngoc: i just sent you the beginning, will finish now
Ngoc: because easyvn doesn’t allow us to write too long
Ngoc: please let me know if you got it all right
TNS: Unbelievable ! You’re such a good writer in Vietnamese. I’m glad I did not accept your offer to write the mac niem. I am not the “mui “type
Ngoc: ok the last part.
Ngoc: short and sweet
Ngoc: as i said, please feel free to edit.
Ngoc: just got an email from donny, he must have made a mistake, there was no message, but for sure he got mine, about the wrong name and date
Ngoc: anh TNS, Donny is here, how to get him in the chatroom? you’re probably busy right now right?
TNS: Donny wants to join the chat. Can you invite him in ?
Ngoc: ok i did
Donny has entered the room.
Ngoc: ok, anh TNS, you got everything?
Donny: let’s get cooking
TNS: Yes I let you and Donny do the chat now I am going to look at your writing
Ngoc: i should have written it (mac niem) last night, but then aol mail did not work, so after a while I went to bed, totally out of it.
Donny: oh ok
Ngoc: weird my page still shows the old stuff
Donny: I am planning to leave the gray over the weekend too
Donny: is that ok?
Ngoc: good idea, good work!
TNS: Perfect, Ngoc. There is nothing to edit except few “dau”. I am going to prepare the post now.

TNS: Donny I like the wmv format
Donny: yes. it compresses really well. I am surprised
Ngoc: great job anh TNS
Donny: yeah! you did a fantastic job anh TNS
Ngoc: and great job Donny
Ngoc: now, can we do a link on top, like when you did the “announcement”—what I’m thinking of is when today is packed with writings, anh TNS’s “mon qua” will be way down and maybe people will not see it.
TNS: What do you want to link on top ?
Ngoc: ua, anh TNS the “Ngoc Lan… Ngoc Lan… ” dau mat roi! Without it, how can we say “Nhac den ten ay”?
Donny: I’ll do it
TNS: I guess few people would cry listening to the song
Ngoc: Oh i see, when you asked the title… Ngoc Lan… Ngoc lan… was just part of the text.
TNS: I know that was part of the title but I also thought it would be a good title. What’s next ?
Donny: post the winners?
Ngoc: OK I fixed it
Ngoc: put the Ngoc Lan.. Ngoc Lan.. back in
Ngoc: this chat is getting so slow
TNS: You mean we are slow?
Donny: I am going to post the video in multimedia
Ngoc: must be a gazillion people chatting
Donny: want to give a blurb?
Ngoc: good idea
Ngoc: I’ll give your post about an hour or two, then will come back and post XX’s article.
Ngoc: meantime anh TNS you will post i forgot the person’s name that sent the writing and the poem.
TNS: You guys have cable or dial up modem?
Donny: ask chi Ngoc
Donny: i am at work
TNS: Really Donny because of NL ?
Donny: I don’t use a comp at home
TNS: The reason I asked because I have cable when I clicked on the link I got instantly the video I don’t know how it is with dial up
Ngoc: it is still not up.
Ngoc: unlike yesterday when i was at work, we have dsl so it was pretty fast.
Ngoc: our fans in VN will have a heck of a time trying to watch that clip
Donny: they’ll download and watch it
TNS: CH told me that she had no problem watching Pham Duy clip
Donny: once it’s downloaded, they can watch it on their comp
Donny: Pham Duy clip is 26 mb compared to this 7mb
Ngoc : oh, in my case, i shut it off, also because I already watched it ten times yesterday.
Donny: don’t worry about it too much
Ngoc: anyway, you guys, it is still bed time for me, I’m going back to bed now
Ngoc: oh, anh TNS “an chua nhu~ng nong nan”
TNS: I thought I already fixed it. I am going to do it now
Ngoc: Ok good night to all, and good work everyone.
