Pamela C.: And then came Christmas . . . Guy B.: Ok, I have a question for everyone here involving the e-mail on the emulator utilities. Has anyone tried Convdisk with a non-stanadard Adam disk? rich: oh I get it - the delay is screwing up your limit Pamela C.: brb, folks james: yup. so i get bond place all straightened out only to look like an idiot because my card gets declined. i warned them that it might though. rich: that's OK, your card can be declined even if everything is in order rich: I've had mine declined a number of times because the lines to the authorization centre were down rich: furthermore, they don't tell you it's their computer down - just "charge not authorized" rich: leaves you standing there wondering what kind of deadbeat the store thinks you are james: i've got almost everything charged and put through but i've got the general overall business skills of people in general. james: gotta go - brb rich: hmmm... beer seems to be running through fast tonight rich: by the way Guy, get Michael to tell you about his new computer Guy B.: Seems we have some of us having some trouble with reading Adam disks for the emulator. Guy B.: Mike, what kind of new system do you have? rich: think we worked it out that Win95 and later don't support the reading of DD discs Guy B.: What about using DOS? rich: or at least not on 5.25" drives, though they do on 3.5" rich: no, I tried from the DOS prompt. No joy rich: Dr.D. posted an explanation on it Guy B.: Yes, I read some of the problems with that. I wonder if it's going to effect my documentation that I wrote for it now. rich: So did Shawn, and if he ever gots a spell and grammar checker we'll find out what he was saying rich: Anyway, I still have a Win31 partition on my computer, so I can work in that ColecoGuy: P3 800mgz 256ram 16X DVD 8X CD-RW SBLive Pat 5.1 2 HD 15 13 G respective diskdrives etc..

ColecoGuy: 2289.00 was what I spent in total james: $%&#! rich: you talking about NTT again, james? Guy B.: Whoa!!! james: for a change, no. rich: It's the DVD and 19" monitor that run the cost up rich: basically it's a $1300 computer with a gold hood ornament james: this guy comes with a delivery for my wife and the total comes to 2,296 yen. there goes my postage money for today. as if ColecoGuy: Yea Monitor 430.00 and dvd at that speed is pricey...198.00 james: that weren't enough, he tells me he can't give change, so i say "fine" and give him 2,300 yen and tell him i don't need the 4 james: yen. rich: last of the big spenders, james. james: so what does he say "well, i can't do that", "can't do that!?". 4 yen. so i have to open up my piggy bank to find 96 yen. rich: that's about 5-1/2 cents Canadian, isn't it? james: it probably cost me more than that to heat the room and be online while i was doing that. james: yeah. a bloody canadian nickel. ColecoGuy: wow! james: as though he'll be brought down on corruption charges or being on the take for 4 yen. Pamela C.: I'm back. Shoulda given him the nickel, James ColecoGuy: BRB... james: i *wanted* to. Pamela C.: No I meant a real Cdn nickel BobS: tried to, but the delivery guy was honest......shame........

Pamela C.: Around here I'm just happy if we *get* our mail rich: by teh way, has the Logo disc got there yet, james? Pamela C.: Personally I think the mailman only works three days a week Guy B.: Bad enough I got my pay notice 15 days late. Today I get one day after it's sent out. james: yesterday was a joy because the post office wanted 5,000 yen ($65cdn) to mail a *4 pound* box. the box is of course back here james: in my study room. Pamela C.: Send it Fedex, it's probably cheaper rich: $65 for 2 kilos? Where were you sending it, to the moon? BobS: I think ALL the post offcies are screwed up, I mailed somehting the other day and it cost almost double what I have been paying! james: one would think. that was regular airmail to canada. rich: For that price, send them only to the right politicians, timed to explode james: btw bob - i *will* have your money order to you soon. i had a few things come up this month but you should have it by the new year. james: sorry to keep you waiting. BobS: no problem James, I haven't got time to checkthe hd andcontroller anyway right now BobS: holidays and all ya know rich: yes, our postal rates are go9ing up on Jan. 1st rich: that means the post office will issue the new denomination stamps Jan 2nd Pamela C.: How often do you actually mail things these days? james: don't they go up every year? rich: it only seems that way, james Guy B.: Soon, I'll be selling my 486. It will have a 170mb hard drive, no floppy drives, but I can add one. A double speed CD-Rom, mouse, keyboard, and DOS 6.22 for $20. Whoever wants it will have to get a new CMOS battery. Anyone interested? Pamela C.: no, this is the first increase in two years rich: That what you're asking or paying folks to take it, Guy? Guy B.: Asking price before I put it on Yahoo auctions. BobS: sell the parts Guy rich: I suggest Yahoo BobS: more valuable than the whole computer BobS: shipping costs too much for the computer rich: at least save the DOS - you may need it for the Emulator Guy B.: I'm keeping the monitor for now. Guy B.: The emulator has been transfered to my P133. rich: so put a DOS partition on the 133 Guy B.: I already done that.

BobS: depends on what ya get rich: we've been having interference problems on the US channels lately Pamela C.: Antenna is okay if all you want is the local channels but if you want specialty of any type (read sports) you have to go with a provider rich: basically we must have more antenna channels than almost anyplace in the world BobS: ah so....... dat's not GUT !!! rich: but if you want TSN (ESPN North) and Speedvision, then they aren't on antenna Pamela C.: The problem is, one of them is CBC, and one is TV Ontario rich: nothing wrong with CBC Pamela C.: I never watch it.
