Ron: yes... better from your side James BobSlopsema: SORRY!!! ;-) didn't want to insult the thing..... james: much. mind you, we canadians are faring *much* better than the australians and new zealanders as far as currency goes. BobSlopsema: but around the states, the Meteor was a mid size car rich-c: the yen I see is gaining strength daily - but the pound and Euro are really dropping BobSlopsema: what is their rate exchange???? BobSlopsema: gonna be bad for the people going to the Olympics Ron: indeed james: a *canadian* dollar buys $1.21 australian right now and $1 nz gets them all of .42 us. rich-c: Canadian, yen I think about .0138, Euro 1.28, poubnd 2.07 tonite james: no, it's *good* for people going to the olympics. james: australian dollars are super cheap right now.

BobSlopsema: RON!!!!! now you could use that "funny" money and see the olympics!!!! Guy B.: I'm planning for mine now for next year. james: that is true. BobSlopsema: it's a better rate than coming to the statesd!!! james: what's so damn funny about a .67 cent dollar ;) james: oops 67 cent that is. .67 cents wouldn't be very much at all.. BobSlopsema: just a joke Meeka had with Ron, James Ron: the funny part is that some people on this side of the border actually want it that way Ron: oh yea.... I remember james: yeah, exporters. everyone else in their right mind would like to see it at least back up to 80 cents. Ron: Tell Meeka I have a picture of her ironing T-shirts at ADAMCON rich-c: sure _ I can sell an Adam for $100 U.S. delivered - that's a bargain BobSlopsema: heck I ran out in Windsor and had to take the hit on us $$$ at Burger King james: even i remember when it was at parity Colecoguy: I reember before trudeau took us off the gold standard when our dollar was worth more than the americam I can't understand it either Ron! BobSlopsema: got shafted on that exchange as I remember it Ron: right Coleco. That's the way it was once mrjive: Never should have gone off the gold standard. james: well a 600 billion dollar debt likely doesn't help. wonder which generation gets to pay that off.. Colecoguy: For sure! mrjive: It never will be paid off. BobSlopsema: every gov't tries to pass it as far down the line as possible Ron: we could hold a contest...."Inherit the National debt" james: not with the liberals at the helm. Colecoguy: the next the one after that and then who knows rich-c: our dollar is actually 76 - 80 U>S> cents in purchasing power BobSlopsema: sell tickets, yes????? Ron: right on james: rich c - how does that work? (i believe you, just don't understand) Ron: Liberals..... at the helm?...... ROTFL james: actually, the debt could be paid off in 20 years or earlier if they wanted to. once you get going and you Ron: Better than the Non-Directional-Partisans BobSlopsema: Big "AL" will straighten out the USA! ;-) james: get past paying so much interest, you can put a dent in the principle, like your mortgage really. just takes awhile to get james: going Ron: oh yes, then we have Al Guy B.: Or will it be Bush Bob? mrjive: igor! i mean Algore. rich-c: it ain't easy to explain, james BobSlopsema: don't know Guy, but I do know "AL" is a liberal convservationist we don't need; with a ZERO personallity james: okay, well is that a purchasing power vs. cost of living? james: yes, but i'm a very patriotic canadian and do plan on returning someday. likely in about 12-15 years. Guy B.: Well, will have to see how this turns out in the next few weeks. Ron: aha james: if we have kids, i want them to go to j.h.s. and h.s. in canada, not japan and i plan on going back with them for awhile james: to go bakc to school myself. rich-c: well, what the Yanks can buy for $1.00 costs us about 1.25, not 1.46 BobSlopsema: 1.25 in the canadian market??? james: maybe i should take a business course or two. Ron: Tell me, you experienced e-bay users Ron: do any of you use a service called BidPay when you buy something? BobSlopsema: yo, ebay newbie......... Guy B.: I've used Paypal. BobSlopsema: I use PAYPAL regularly Ron: was recommended by my seller, so I signed up james: not yet but i've been looking at it. BobSlopsema: and have never started with BidPay mrjive: Nope.....never, NEVER put out a credit card number on the net. rich-c: yes, in equivalent bucks we pay less for food, cars, wine, lots of other stuff Ron: well.... seemed to go reasonably well Ron: except I paid a premium for faster mail BobSlopsema: why????? james: i purchase stuff regularly over the net using my credit card. no other choice really. Ron: because I thought it was a good idea at the time. Guy B.: Yahoo has something called Yahoo Direct. Haven't checked it out yet. Ron: since been wondering why. rich-c: you haven't dealt with Canada Post, Bob BobSlopsema: w/ PAYPAL, you give them a secutre lins 1 time w/ credit card and then never again Ron: tThere was a choice between normal mail and priority mail to forward the m/o james: ugh. canada comPost BobSlopsema: you just use a passord and email address BobSlopsema: they mailit????? rich-c: if the security is right a credit card on the net is OK mrjive: I always send a check or money order.....sometimes takes over a month, especially to canada, to get yout item, but it's safer. Ron: yes. james: safer than giving it out over a celphone. rich-c: the only time I got burned was ordering thru an 800 number BobSlopsema: PAYPAL uses electronic within it's organization and you can also electronicly take money out into your bank account Guy B.: Today you can use a credit card with the net since security has improved over the last two years. Ron: could be myjive... perhaps you have a point. I"m in no blinding rush for this item, but it will Ron: probably arrive in few days Ron: understand it has now been mailed james: you'll be glad when you have it, i'm sure. BobSlopsema: use an AT&T credit card...for one. They guarantee safety on the net Ron: true Guy B.: As long as you have a secured webpage.

Ron: nobody ever told me james: japanese is useless for swearing. james: the only swear word i have now is "ntt".. BobSlopsema: use French james Ron: about like French scott: And I have permission to use my computer to talk to you guys tonight. james: i do :D mrjive: Wyo will have to hire more pony express riders to do DSL. scott: Ron -- I'm a web designer. Ron: French... swear words are all religious epithets BobSlopsema: hmmmm..... Ron: ok Scott...got it rich-c: the best sounding swearing is German james: yes, and i'm not a religious person. Ron: whereas, in English all swear words are based on sex rich-c: but in actual content it's pretty mild BobSlopsema: and a computer guru like ya'll don't have your very own puter Scott??? james: apparently there's this african dialect that bases swearing on pumpkins.. scott: I don't know -- Castellan Spanish can sound pretty dirty. Dale: Around here it took about 2 years to go from metro to more rural. Ron: wouldn't be surprised james: hmm.. okay because kdd (a long distance carrier) is just starting up adsl in tokyo and osaka.. Dale: But some of it took longer. It depends on how much fiber they've layed alrwady. scott: My computer is at my parent's house. rich-c: yeah, Italian too - though maybe there it's the hands scott: Still playing with it over there. james: arg. so i'll likely be in bandwidth/toll based dial up 33.6 internet "access" hell for quite some time then. Ron: By the way gents and ladies, you will all be happy to know that my ADAM iDE hard drive rich-c: Canada's said to be ahead of everyone on that, and even here it's very limited Dale: In Brooklin (town of 1700) they went from 1940s and 1950s phone system to totally fiber in 1993 over a period of about 2 years. Ron: connector problems were fixed with a can of contact spray mrjive: Aha....I haven't used mine in 11 years.....lost the Smartbasic tape Dale: To convert the town it cost Bell about $1million. Ron: mjive, do you have a disk drive? scott: Dale -- the web page kinda shocked me. Dale: Ron, now there's a bright idea. Ron: yah james: i'm going to mention that to the town government. they wasted 1.3 million dollars (u.s.) building this stupid pyramid thing BobSlopsema: novel idea Ron.... ;-) james: near the road. idiots. rich-c: pity you didn't have the 'net then, Doug. Adam software is still very plentiful BobSlopsema: no pushpins eh? Ron: not necessary (this time) mrjive: no....but I bought a new smartbasic tape from Bob scott: So I guess it's Ultra Mutt for sure, eh? scott: Kinda like the name, actually. Ron: really mjive, there's no reason to be without whatever ADAM software you want to have rich-c: well, when you want some other stuff drop me a line - after Hallowee'n Ron: but you DO need a disk drive Dale: The CEO of Sony thinks that broadband Internet can be everywhere in Japan soon. BobSlopsema: Richard got is ALL....... james: yeah, everywhere but here is my guess. rich-c: Soon, Only Not Yet, james Dale: I think like 2 years is plausable if the've already sterted in the metro areas. james: we don't even have catv infrastructure because "it's not in our 10 year plan".. scott: Sony -- what a bunch of idiots. No plan for narrowband support for PS2! BobSlopsema: ADAM's House has 3 160's in stock or will convert to 320's for $125 and $1?? respectively and now he takes PAYPAL rich-c: don't know how we can live without it, Scott mrjive: Actually I'm not so sure I want to go back....kinda reliving the '80's.....but I did want to get it up and running.
moved to room Meeting Place james: might be. i'm going to be putting together a survey to pressure the town government to modernize. colecoguy: got to go see ys next week I hope james: people are tired of seeing their money spent on pyramids.
changed username to WBurnside Ron: we are all here to help BobSlopsema: see ya Michael have a good week rich-c: hey Willie, you finally got in Dale: If you read my email Scott, you'll see, it was just registered to reserve it. BobSlopsema: hiya Willie. missed ya!

colecoguy left chat session mrjive: lol scott: Mighty neat poof smoke... james: so mrjive, where are you from? WBurnside: I had to work late replacing another instructor james: couldn't repair him? mrjive: Cheyenne, Wyoming....land of milk and....sheep. rich-c: do they plug in or need soldering, WB? Dale: Scott, sure, but not that much. james: cool. i live in yokota, southwestern japan. land of cows and rice paddies and idiotic town governments. scott: How much? I've seen all types of prices for domains. Ron: Automatic sprinkler system shooting water from outside into the basement window onto 2 computers Ron: best I shut the window BobSlopsema: ya shure....... scott: I'm thinking of reserving a couple of other domains myself. Dale: $10US per year. mrjive: Wow japan.....no guns I hate it. scott: Dale -- where? Ron: back james: i'm not a big fan of guns. mrjive: I understand. rich-c: Doug, did you know Japan was one of the earliest countries with guns? Dale: My perfered place <grin> rich-c: They were - but decided they didn't like them so gave them up scott: ok ;) james: i'd rather slice and dice someone than blow them up myself. mrjive: Yes.....gunpowder was invented in china I think. mrjive: lol james rich-c: yes, and there is a strong cross-cultural influence scott: Dale, we need to set up another meeting. My UOP class just finished tonight. I'll be free to do other things. james: my father in law has a *real* katana, handle and everything, police registered. made right here in yokota, one of the few places BobSlopsema: slice and dice sounds painful! james: in japan where the trade can be learned and swords are made. mrjive: You have to register a katana with the police! rich-c: Japanese swords are legendary - make Toledo steel look chintzy james: painful, but very effective i'd imagine. trust me, just being in a room with someone i trust and *not* being the one holding the james: sword makes me nervous. Dale: How 'bout Sun at 2 or 5 eastern Ron: we should all return to fists at fifty paces scott: Actually I was hoping we could get together before then. BobSlopsema: I agree with Ron!!!!! scott: If possible scott: Sunday's football day. mrjive: Sorry, but I'm gonna keep my uzi.....just in case. james: they fold them over some crazy number of times. BobSlopsema: heck I got my basement, I can HIDE!!!! james: in case.. the king of england decides to come and take your land ;) Ron: even here, on the Island there are guns.... Ron: they take 'em to school mrjive: lol more like king of america. james: i've been held up at gun point, in ottawa by a stupid 15 year old kid. what kind of idiot tries to get cash from a james: university student is what i told him, and walked away. Ron: the ultimate comeback James. mrjive: Pretty brave james. Ron: but still, I'm sure you must remember that moment eh? james: yeah. i'm lucky i'm not dead. rich-c: and not without much truth Dale: I have a web launch, and many other commitments. scott: The moment of truth... Ron: Business doing ok Dale? scott: How about later Sunday evening? Dale: Later Sun is okay. What time? scott: Pick a time. BobSlopsema: Willie, ge the package yet???? BobSlopsema: get scott: 5,6? james: do you really have an uzi, mrjive? wyoming doesn't sound like the kind of place where one would need arms.. mrjive: Did I die? Dale: 5pm EST is prefect scott: Actually, that's 5 or 6 pm MST, so 7 or 8 pm EST mrjive: Rut ro..... scott: Alright, alright. 5pm EST. BobSlopsema: naw you are still here jive scott: What is this site that you are launching? Ron: here? BobSlopsema: no there..... Dale: &EST is okay. BobSlopsema: or anywhere..... Dale: 7EST is fine. scott: Okay 7EST it is. Ron: :) scott: What's this site that you are launching??? Ron: These guys are trying to be serious Dale: The business is doing well. Ron: good Dale
mrjive left chat session Dale: We are launching a photo sharing site...

Ron: Oh now that's cool Dale: Then we are adding free Internet scanning of films. mrjive: Testing, testing Ron: speaking of which.... mrjive: Whew james: you're here. Ron: I've just scanned in some of my ADAMCON OCH photo's... are you interested in some more JPEG's? scott: Wow. Could make you some money. mrjive: Got real quiet.....logged off and back on. Dale: It will be called pixbank.com...In fact, I'm planning to invite everyone on the coladam-list to join our beta programme shortly. BobSlopsema: happens when you get dumped....... Dale: Ron, sure just email them to me. Ron: cool! rich-c: got room for 8000 scans, Dale? mrjive: Aha thanks bob scott: Well good luck. Sounds very interesting. Ron: ok Still got 4 or 5 more to do, but will send them along prolly tomorrow WBurnside: Bob, I have not received the package yet scott: Well guys, I have to head out of here. Nice to see you all. scott: Got other commitments myself. rich-c: see you in November. Scott mrjive: Talk to you later Scott BobSlopsema: goot aplit now fellas....Richard, be careful on your trip and will see you and Frances onthe return side Ron: niters Scott scott: Nice to chat and will be able to come here on a more frequent basis. james: bye scott. BobSlopsema: the rest of ya's BEHAVE! ;-) Ron: and Bob BobSlopsema: be back next week! Dale: Rich C, I have room for hundres of megabytes on AdamCon.org. But you get to do the scanning. rich-c: 10-4 bob, best to Judy and the kids Ron: not bloody likely scott: See ya! james: mrjive, you married? scott: Poof. BobSlopsema: Willie should be there tomorrow or Fri then
scott left chat session WBurnside: Bye all! Have a good trip Rich-c rich-c: well, I have a lot of slides taking up a lot of space!!! mrjive: Nope....single and lovin it. Dale: I'm also looking for AdamCon 9 or AC11 Sunday pictures
BobSlopsema left chat session rich-c: WB, Thanks, CU james: :D married 2 years. miss being single sometimes. james: not often though.
WBurnside left chat session mrjive: I understand. Ron: hMMM.... might have some Sunday 11 pics rich-c: we're coming up on our 46th anniversary Ron: although I took a bunch to Meek for the photo album so she might have 'em...will check mrjive: Most of my friends are married....they tell me to stay single. Dale: Didn't you have some on Seatle Film works Ron? Ron: took me 20 years to figure that myjive mrjive: lol ron Ron: Yes Dale, and the disks are still here somewhere.... james: 46 years. wow. i've got a little to go before i get that far. i'll likely go deaf before then. rich-c: there are days when it helps... mrjive: lol Ron: I look around now.... and based on that plus my own experience I wonder why people even try james: love her to pieces but sometimes, particularly *when i'm driving* she just doesn't know when i could use a break. Dale: This week was my 2nd Anniversery. Ron: living together. However in some cases I know it does work out ok Ron: Congrats Dale james: well i'd say 46 years is successful. Ron: yes, certainly is rich-c: congrats to Jill, Dale Dale: thanks. Ron: and Jill james: i got married rather young too for this day and age - 23. Ron: well.... mrjive: Pretty cool.....My parents just selebrated their 40th annaversary rich-c: depends on how you feel about it 25 years down teh road, james Ron: I dunno.... 23, you're practically an old man james: yeah, we'll see then :D Ron: my son Jeff just whined about turning 29 james: so far as my students are concerned, 26 is ancient. mrjive: ouch.....I'm 31 Ron: end of last month Dale: Jills says thank-you too. Ron: Richard and I are...(ahem) a little older james: i wonder if i was really such a smart-ass when i was 13 or 14.. james: my guess is yes. rich-c: hey, I'm only 70 - just up to cruisin' speed mrjive: We all were. Ron: yea Rich Dale: So in this group I'm still below average at 28 james: am i the youngest at 26 then? Ron: At least I'm not the chief senior. I'm 56 rich-c: it's OK Dale, you're catching up mrjive: Sounds like it Ron: too young to be a senior, but too old to work Dale: But in MTAG we are officially classified as a "Senior's group" (and therefore don't pay any fee for our meeting space). Ron: Hey that's a cool move Dale rich-c: depends on how they define seniors Dale: You know how people say "I feel too young to be a senior"? mrjive: On the net we are all seniors. Dale: Well, I was floored that I was a senior! Ron: well... for curling I'm a senior. At some restaurants I'm a senior james: how old are you dale? Ron: At banks I'm NOT yet Dale: 28. Dale: So James, you are the youngest of those here right now. rich-c: you've got the wrong bank, Ron - some make teh cut at 55 james: most definitely not a senior, though my students may disagree. some of them are ready to plant me already. Ron: :) mrjive: lol james Ron: kids have a different perspective james: they're a few pushups stronger now.. Dale: Well, I'm the president of the local Adam group which is a "Senior's Computer Club" on our permit. mrjive: lol Ron: how did you work that Dale? rich-c: they have at least one senior member, I believe mrjive: Testing, testing Dale: It happened which the various cities of Metro Toronto merged, and the funding formulas changed... rich-c: you're here, Doug Ron: and that makes it official Dale: Every club had to be clasified as either youth, senior (both free) or adult ($15/hour for space). Dale: Since most of our members and all of our regulars except me are retired, that's what they decided. Ron: pretty hefty room rent Dale....to be avoided any way you can rich-c: and two out of three, majority wins? Ron: it's legit Dale: I just never suspected. Not all of our members are retired, nor was it a requirement. rich-c: if anyone asks, Dale, just tell them one of the retirees is your grandfather Dale: I was actually scheming to try and avoid the rent, but it happened without intervention. rich-c: and that he really runs the club; you're just a front Ron: well now that I'm a card carrying member Ron: I must profess allegiance to the executive mrjive: $15/hr wow......I'd use IRC instead of that. Dale: Well, the member of our exec who gets the permit is retired, so I think that that works in our favour. rich-c: finally get around to joining AARP or CARP, Ron? james: rich, my travels will take me to your neck of the woods around the first of august next year. Ron: not yet Rich. I'm Newsletter Editor for our local FSNA branch (membership 900)...that's enough rich-c: sounds good, james - we don't travel much in August - too nice here Ron: we do a quarterly thing james: so if you'd like to meet me and some *really* young people, i'd be nice to get together. i'll be taking them mrjive: What time is it in Japan james? rich-c: the big ..RPs are good for discounts james: (and a second pair of drawers) up the cn tower. Dale: Well, the $15/hr is for the whole group. We usually get about 8 people per meeting. Ron: we have access to those as well rich-c: I'm a little old for that elevator, james rich-c: but maybe I'll cheer from terra firma james: beats the stairs ;) james: i'm not a big fan of heights, particularly open, glass elevator .5 km heights. rich-c: amen Dale: When you're in town James, look me up. I'm always ready for high adventure in Toronto. Ron: we used to have those in Ottawa. CD Howe Building on Queen St. Ron: you must have been there James james: oh yeah, i fogot that you're in toronto too. for sure! rich-c: Dale, you take teh group up - james and Fracnes can come here and talk Logo james: cd howe building. nope never been up that one. i avoid heights when possible. my wife coerced me into the cn tower bit. rich-c: Even I've been up the Peace Tower james: she thought it was just *hilarious* yeah. real funny. Ron: ic mrjive: James: what time is it in Japan? rich-c: he's 12 hours ahead of us, Doug james: it's about 12:30 in the afternoon. i just closed my window and turned on the a/c. mrjive: Aha! james: glad i'm not in europe or i'd likely not be joining these chats. Ron: how so James? rich-c: yes, they're about seven hours ahead of you Ron: time? mrjive: Three thirty in Greenwich, England james: well, 9 p.m. est would put most european countries at around 3 am.. Ron: right.. it's 8:29 P.M. here on the 13 Sept rich-c: Eastern is five hours behind GMT james: is it still light out? Ron: so Europe wouldn't work out. We're 8 hours behind GMT Ron: or is it Co-ordinated Universal Time Dale: Some day we should to a chat at a time agreeable to Marcel. mrjive: Tough to have a "global community" when a third are asleep. rich-c: with due allowance for Daylight Time, of course mrjive: Nope....sun dial isn't working here james: we don't have that (daylight time) here. i don't miss it. Ron: yes.... atcually we're only 7 hrs behind GMT now rich-c: think what the net would be like if dinner time werer the same everywhere james: it's usually dark by 7:30, even on the longest day of the year. Ron: we do what the aviation people do... run on Zulu mrjive: Wake up and eat rich! Dale: Avation people all run on GMT. Ron: yup which they sometimes refer to as Zulu time Dale: So being worried about landing at midnight local time is probably not an issue. Ron: not so much any more. Think that was a military thing rich-c: don't forget Ron is an hour behind Doug and in a higher latitude Ron: yup. I'm 30 miles from the 50th parallel of latitude james: well even time zones are a very rough approximation. if you take noon to be the point when the sun is highest in the sky, Ron: and about 124 West james: there can be as much as 40 minutes difference between places within the same time zone. Ron: give or take mrjive: Wow an hour behing! Those pony express riders are sure slow! rich-c: yes - I once photographed a sunrise in Gaspe - at 4.27 a.m. Ron: even in the northern parts of Vancouver Island around June it never really gets dark james: and since the earth is round, of course, the further north you go in a time zone, the longer your days/nights get Ron: sort of a twilight thing all night rich-c: In Yellowknife they start the annual golf tournament at midnight June 21 james: i'd like to see that sometime. not a place for stargazing though. Ron: indeed. Ron: so is it Sept 14 where you are James? rich-c: it is in December, james james: well, i guess they'd get long nights in the winter though. that could work. james: yeah, sept 14th. 2000. can't believe how fast this month has gone by. half over already. james: what's in december? Dale: James, yes, the sun is up for just an hour or two depending where you go. Ron: I have a theory about the passage of time as one ages on the high side of 50 rich-c: the years get shorter and teh days get longer Ron: the farther away you get from 50 (going up) the faster time goes james: hee hee.. rich-c: actually, I think the days get shorter too james: it makes sense, as you age, every day becomes a proportionately smaller portion of your lifetime to date. Dale: My brothers took a 24hour plan trip to one of the farthest north setlements in Canada and the sun was below the horizon for about 35 minutes. Ron: until when you are infinitely far away from age 50, time passes infinitely fast rich-c: remember when days were long enugh that we had time to go to work? Ron: oh yes Rich. That was a curiosity definately rich-c: cant imagine how we ever did it Ron: exactly james: would explain why kids are so restless. an hour must be so much longer for them. rich-c: I recall high schol classes when an hour was ten seconds short of eternity Ron: interesting James. You're probably right Dale: haha
Dale left chat session james: it happens sometimes, but don't tell my wife.
moved to room Meeting Place Ron: Dale is aging too
changed username to Dale Ron: he just doesn't realize it yet rich-c: it's ok, they never believe it anyway Ron: I remember when Dale was young mrjive: ok this is driving me nuts....lets talk about the ADAM computer. Dale: Oh no! I was bumped. But today I was on Windows, not Linux as I usually am. Ron: back a few ADAMCONs ago james: and ron would remember me when i was 13 :D mrjive: What does everyone do with the old machine? Dale: I have pictures of me when I was young at AC02. rich-c: And, Doug, ask them about Seth Ron: yep James. Remember this young man showing up at one of our AUFG meetings with Dad james: i'm going to start teaching smartlogo to kids over here, once i get the manual translated. mrjive: Seth? rich-c: son of Adam - there are plots mrjive: Hmmmmm Dale: Well, we've been doing all kinds of things with the Adam. mrjive: What is smartlogo? Ron: mjive.... we have quite a bit of history here. Some of the people you're talking to have been rich-c: anyway, I use my Adam for formal letters, envelope addressing, small databasing Ron: active adam users since teenage years james: logo is a programming language for children. smartlogo is the adam version. Ron: some others have watched them grow up rich-c: Frances uses it for Logo and all sorts of spreadsheet stuff mrjive: aha Dale: Like playing games, using LOGO, etc. Dale: I use it mostly for programming. james: i got my adam when i was 9. Ron: I still think LOGO does best at taking full advantage of the capabilities of ADAM Dale: I write games, applications, music etc. james: if i get into generating wind power over here (lots of wind coming off the mountains) i'll use an adam or two as a control mrjive: I know I got a lot of good use out of mine writing my college reports on mine. Dale: I greet Ron. rich-c: Some folks claim Logo is the most flexible programming language yet james: centre. Dale: I agree Ron. Ron: it has sound commands, sprite control, a sprite editor built in james: will be even more flexible in 6 months time with any luck. rich-c: Dr. D. uses his Adam to control lab experiements at the university mrjive: Interesting.....I never heard of logo Dale: SmartLOGO is very much tuned to all of the capabilities of the Adam. rich-c: there are a lot of Colecovision game fans around, too james: dale, you've heard of my plans for smartlogo, right? rich-c: Frances likes the easy graphics control she gets in Logo Dale: There is also an Adam Emulator to revive all of your old Adam interests in the PC. mrjive: Do most of you have the Adam stand alone? Mine was the plug in to the colecovision. Dale: James, I've looked over your translation so far. Dale: Just like Ron's. james: okay, my other project then. i'm going to add a character editor and functionality to save and load new character sets. rich-c: All the Adams I have up and running or in personal reserve are standalone Ron: Doug was there ever a club or ADAM user group where you were? Ron: where you are I mean Ron: LIke where was Norm Castro's group? Dale: I have an expansion module Adam somewhere I think. But my first Adam was a standalone. mrjive: I think I'm the only one in Wyo with an Adam ron lol rich-c: he was in Nebraska - Omaha Ron: oh ok, right rich-c: you'd be amazed where there are Adams, Doug Dale: Have you tried out the Adam Emulator Doug? rich-c: every once in a while we get someone new in chat, and they come from all over mrjive: Just kidding....I've seen them at garage sales. mrjive: No I haven't seen the emulator. rich-c: grab one - they're on the cusp of becoming pricey collector curiosities Ron: what's Marcel's URL? Dale: I jsut don't get to enough garage sales. Some day I'll buy a Cray Supercomputer at one, I'm sure. Ron: www.komcon.org Ron: /~dekogel rich-c: /~dekogel mrjive: I was surprised there are people still using them....if it wasn't for bob selling stuff on ebay I wouldn't have found this place. james: /~dekogel Dale: I tell every one to visit the Coleco Adam pointers page at http://www.adamcon.org/~dmwick/adam/ rich-c: we got an echo here mrjive: lol Dale Ron: pointers page is best place to start rich-c: just put Colecovision Adam into a search engine and you'll be stunned at teh hits Ron: well folks, given that the mind can only digest what the ass can endure Ron: i go Dale: TTYL Ron. james: i'm going to leave you all now. time for lunch and i have to do a few things before i start work this evening. rich-c: yes, my legs are starting to cramp; too much sittring Ron: see ya next week Ron: good week all rich-c: OK all, see you in November. Be good while I'm away james: rich - have fun on your trip! you'll hopefully have an e-mail when you get back saying i got the stuff! :D Dale: Bye for now Rich. Ron: good trip Rich rich-c: And very pleased to meet you, Doug; come back soon mrjive: thanks rich rich-c: bye now james: bye dough.
