Pamela C.: Did you send pictures to Dad and is that what he's forwarding? rich-c: yes, it should be easy since we're both on tamcotec Pamela C.: This is the first time I've been on since we went to the 10 digit dialling - did y ou have any problems? rich-c: test Pamela C.: exam rich-c: oh, I set my computer for ten-digit months ago Pamela C.: well, excuuuuse me! rich-c: in fact, I even nagged John about not reminding the customers Pamela C.: well, he nagged me BobS: yup sent 2 pics to dad...1 of Meeka and baby and 1 of Mandy and baby rich-c: yes, I put him up to that; not you, specifically, everyone Pamela C.: Are they labelled?

BobS: Eich will recognise them both Pamela C.: How many grandkids is that, Bob? BobS: 3 now Pam Pamela C.: Is that everyone except Meeka and Doug? rich-c: any more known to be on teh way? Pamela C.: Hey, Pop, did I tell you we have no hot water? Leaky pipe, apparently rich-c: is everyone slow typing or are we getting hung on the server tonight? rich-c: well, at least the weatehr is a little warmer - almost up to freezing Pamela C.: I'm getting you two okay. Yeah, but it makes showering a bit of a challenge, especially at 6:00 a.m. BobS: no more that we know of on the way rich-c: by the way, I assume you're expecting us to bring wine Saturday? rich-c: just be glad the leak isn't in your apartment Pamela C.: Yes, but not for me. We're having lasagna and caesar salad, so bring red. Pamela C.: I am glad. One leaky apartment is enough. rich-c: even if I can get a light fruity red? Pamela C.: Not sweet enough for me. Don't worry, I'll find something to drink. rich-c: OK - is Russell OK with a fairly challenging wine? Pamela C.: Umm, how challenging? rich-c: Say one of our fairly hefty Australian shirazs? Pamela C.: I can ask. I know he can tolerate most, but he has preferences that I don't know cos we never drink red. Pamela C.: Pretty scary after 14 years, huh? rich-c: Well, there's a nice light montepulciano d'abbruzzo that Beppi was pushing in the Globe a bit back BobS: YES!
moved to room Meeting Place BobS: today is 32 years for my youngish wife and I rich-c: hey, congratulations Pamela C.: Gesundheit, Dad. Congrats on that too, Bob! It takes a lot of work to keep a marriage going that long. rich-c: to Judy of course for enduring you that long... BobS: thank you

BobS: yes he has but I don't remember how BAIR: they always say the truth hurts Pamela C.: It was very quiet. We had my parents over on Christmas eve, and went to my inlaws for Christmas day. It was over too fast. Pamela C.: And yours? james: just relaxed. i took six days off from teaching and took it easy. Pamela C.: Judy, click on the edit drop down, choose change user name, delete Bob, and put yourself in Pamela C.: Must be nice. Six days in a row. I'm jealous. james: got caught up on a lot of crap i couldn't get done before. rich-c: you sound mre like a teacher every day james: well, don't be too jealous - i work seven days a week and hadn't had a single day off in three months. rich-c: see abnove
BobS changed username to Judy Pamela C.: How many hours do you teach a day? james: hee hee :) Guy B.: You needed a break James. james: i average 6 hours a day Judy: there you are Pamela C.: And just what does that evil laugh mean? Judy: is that better rich-c: you lok much prettier now, Judy Pamela C.: Much better. Don't you feell more like yourself? Judy: thanks BAIR: sounds better to Guy B.: Any of the snow melting by you Judy? Judy: it is easier if you don't know it is me BAIR: why rich-c: oh, we can tell when you're on - the spelling improves Judy: yes it is going away james: rich & pam - i now have an english version of our final schedule for our trip in march. Guy B.: Finally got some melting here too. But, we have a big ice jam on the roof. rich-c: OK, trust you will be emailing it soon? Judy: then I can just sit and watch Pamela C.: Are you going to e-mail it, James BAIR: sounds like my place Judy: does it leak rich-c: you having a problem with runoff, Bob? Pamela C.: That's how I got hooked into this - I couldn't just sit and watch james: i was going to snail mail it but now that the file is 460k and not 31mb, i could e-mail it no problem. BAIR: not yet Judy: my spelling is so bad Pamela C.: where did you get that idea, Judy? BAIR: not as bad as mine rich-c: yes, 31 meg is a bit of an upload at your modem speed Guy B.: Judy, your spelling is alot Better than Bob's. Pamela C.: Bob gets fimble ningers alot Judy: I have to be careful what I write james: i figure it would be faster to snailmail 31mb than to try and e-mail it. Judy: he types fast Pamela C.: I think you're the only one who worries about spelling rich-c: oh, just hammer away - the keyboard can't speel anyway Pamela C.: LOL, James Judy: I backspace alot rich-c: well, we'd welcome the new hard drive you'd have to put it on Pamela C.: so does half the group, especially me. It takes a lot of work to get it to come out right Guy B.: Rich, I may be able to save the 486. I found a place on the web that has the CMOS battery that this computer has. I have to double check to be sure it's the right one. james: you might also want to try a battery specialist shop. rich-c: sounds like you're coming up roses, Guy. Let's hear it for the Net! Judy: I better go now to have pie and coffee with bobs parents james: specialty shop would be better i guess.. Judy: so bye fo;r now rich-c: OK, send the old guy back son BAIR: where is ours Pamela C.: Wow, four generations? That's great! G'nite for now and felicitations rich-c: niters. Judy Guy B.: I printed the page out. I opened the 386 computer and that battery is definately soldered to the board. But it looks like that one may take a different battery. Guy B.: Bye Judy rich-c: some of teh older computers there's a way to sort of bypass the dead battery - wire a new one around it BAIR: see you all next time rich-c: you on your way, Bob? Pamela C.: Bair, are you leaving? Pamela C.: You just got here! james: as long as the output and the polarity are the same, you can pretty much use anything. doesn't even need to be lithium. BAIR: I got some things to do before work Guy B.: From this same website that I found the battery for the 486, the 386 had a 3 pin prong and they have a battery to bypass that. Guy B.: Bye Bob B. james: actually, i seem to recall alot of people replacing the battery with a battery case that could hold regular AA's.. Pamela C.: Seems to me we found a new battery for our 486 without too much trouble, but I don't remember where rich-c: OK, Bob but come back soon, y'hear? Judy: James I recieved your 86 chip in the mial the other day, waiting for your MO for thre hd and card and will bundle together
BAIR left chat session james: thanks judy or is it bob now? james: :D
Judy changed username to BobS Pamela C.: Ah, presto chango rich-c: judging by teh spelling, it's Bob back Guy B.: He's BAAACK! Pamela C.: glass houses, Dad rich-c: the...the...the...the...the... Pamela C.: sure, you say that now but then what james: bob i mentioned further up, but i have paypal now. that would save me the hassle of dealing with the people at the post office. Pamela C.: what, pray tell, is paypal? james: an internet service that lets you send and receive money to and from individuals via your credit card. rich-c: it's a way f money transfer used among other places on eBay Guy B.: Yep, that's what it is. Saves you some time. james: popular for auctions but not limited to auction use like some services. Pamela C.: Ah. Western Union for the internet set. rich-c: you got it right, except it's free to individuals james: and in my case *alot* of money and trouble. james: can you believe the post office here charges $10 for a m.o? ridiculous. i've had some transactions where the money order cost james: me as much as the item itself. james: not any more. paypal saves me alot of trouble. Pamela C.: what do the banks charge? rich-c: I think I will have to lok into it Guy B.: Most places do charge for money orders. Banks can give you a bank check for free if you have an account with them. rich-c: they charge businesses for it, but individuals are free - they make interest n the float james: it's easy. it would let you take visa from your customers rich. rich-c: what customers? they are rather few, james james: i meant me :) rich-c: oh - right! rich-c: actually we may even add another - I found a candidate for the free Adam james: hey pam - wuts yer e-mail? i'll send that file now. james: brb rich-c: sounds like a very nice and sincere young man - had an Adam when he was a kid Pamela C.: What are you gonna do with all this stuff when you come home, James? It's gonna cost a fortune to ship. Or are you not planning on coming home? Guy B.: Bob, does Doug have another e-mail address? I haven't heard from him yet about those Pentium computers he rebuilt. rich-c: Bob, what does a minimal internet ccomputer cost in MI? rich-c: the 386/25 - 16 meg - 540hd - 28.8 modem - win 3.1 level Pamela C.: Are you talking about the guy in Vancouver, Dad? rich-c: no, there's a young man who works for teh city of Las Vegas Pamela C.: ah. rich-c: the other inquirer wasn't serious - bit of a freeloader, less than sincere Pamela C.: what do expect for a free Adam - lots of people out there looking for a free ride Guy B.: Exactly rich-c: well, the thing is he didn't want the Adam, just any goodies he might strip off it rich-c: the sort who hopes to open it up and find a 512 expander inside - and will chuck the rest Pamela C.: that's pathetic rich-c: even teh Adam community has the odd lonesome deadbeat and timewaster Pamela C.: no comment james: pam - what do you mean when you say "all this stuff" do you mean my adam stuff? Pamela C.: yes, and all the other stuff people are sending you. Pamela C.: btw, email is email@example.com Pamela C.: Dad stole the really good address james: thanks. well, i'm not actually planning on moving. my wife and i are here permanently. or at least such is our intent. rich-c: hey, I got dibs - I was there first Pamela C.: and your point? james: with the mortgage on the school, i couldn't go anywhere for another 5 years or so anyways. Pamela C.: I didn't realize you owned the school - I thought you were there as teacher only. That's great! Guy B.: So your going to be there for quite awhile. rich-c: right, and this season there is a definite upside to living in Japan Pamela C.: That means we had better make an effort to see you in April, then. Not many other chances james: quite awhile i would imagine :) it'll be two years in march, more if you count the six months i was here a few years ago. Pamela C.: What prompted the move? rich-c: that's barely time to get settled - you have really made fantastic progress james: yup. the school is mine :) or as things stand now 13% mine and 87% belongs to the bank. rich-c: that will change - time brings all things Pamela C.: I know it wasn't an urge to use NTT for extended periods ; ) Guy B.: How big is the school James? james: my wife and i had decided when we got married that we would move to japan, it was just a matter of "how long" after we got married. rich-c: I don't recall your ever sending us a picture of your wife, James james: i didn't care for my employer in ottawa so i told them i was leaving. barely two months passed between the time i gave them notice james: and the time we got here. Pamela C.: It took me longer than that to pack to move across the street! Guy B.: James, just curious. Is your wife Japanese? james: the school is about.. 6x7 meters, second floor is smaller because the roof comes to a point. rich-c: and if the lease hadn't been up and new folks moving in, you'd be moving yet? james: yes, she's japanese. we live with her parents in their house, right beside the school. Pamela C.: Very funny, Dad. james: lease? Guy B.: That's very convienent. At least you don't have to travel. rich-c: she's a cliff dweller (apartment) james: it's about a 15 second commute on foot to work :D james: got it. rich-c: now you've really got her jealous! Guy B.: No matter what the weather is too. james: if you guys want to see pictures of the school, there's lots on my web page. Pamela C.: We were in a one bedroom apartment on the south side of the street. When my sister in law moved over here, she heard of a two bedroom coming available for a very reasonable price . .. Pamela C.: so we jumped at it. Never regretted it. rich-c: and now you've got Kimberley, and Alison, and are taking over the place... Pamela C.: web address, please! james: http://sceneon.tv/~yoshi rich-c: that's a new one, isn't it? Pamela C.: Let's see, we have Lindsay, Allyson, Kimberly, ourselves, Monique . . . rich-c: oh, was Monique one you tipped off? I'd though she came on her own james: yup :) i'm always updating it. should have some more stuff up there soon about the upgrades i've been doing on these Pamela C.: thanks. james: 486's i received last year. got almost all of them running at pentium level w/ lots of ram Guy B.: Bob is allfully quiet all of a sudden. rich-c: how about posting it on the mailing list so we can all update, james? Pamela C.: Monique belonged to Allyson originally. They grew up together. Remind me to tell you all about it on Saturday. james: done rich-c: hmmm - our lights just dimmed a bit - if I vanish suddenly, you'll know why james: yeah, if the lights go out, we can't see you :) Pamela C.: methinks I need to get added to the mailing list - I miss too much
(The lights sudddenly go out) Pamela C.: Daddy go poof!
(Guy B. groans loudly) rich-c: yes, they're up and down - that usually means Hydro is having a switching problem Pamela C.: right on time. we usually have a power failure around this time of year. Pamela C.: come to think of it, we're overdue. Haven't had one in at least two years. rich-c: yes, we had a beaut a couple of afternoons ago - just for a second, but a BIG surge Pamela C.: Okay, question. How do you get those comments in brackets? rich-c: I'm still curious how many of the neighbours might have lost their tvs and vcrs rich-c: try actions Guy B.: Pam, go actions, they click on subjects then anyone of them there.
(<s> reboots <o>'s computer remotely.) Pamela C.: ah. the things you learn rich-c: we don't use them much - they're a little too cutesy Pamela C.: not if they're used properly Pamela C.: which around here, they are
(Guy B. winks) rich-c: properly in this context is defined as "sparingly" Pamela C.: especially by Guy Guy B.: This one is my favorite
(A dog howls in the distance) Pamela C.: I obviously need to hang around here more rich-c: anyway, Guy, you're not the only one who's been doing some upgrading lately rich-c: I went out and got me a really neat inkjet - Canon S400 rich-c: so Frances took her revenge Pamela C.: Does it work okay? Guy B.: Glad you brought that up. Got my new Athlon tower. It can AMD Athlon from 500 to 850. 768mb max memory. rich-c: at our meeting last night she bought the 3.9 OS and adapters that let her use a PS2 mouse and keyboard on the Amiga Guy B.: I'm leaning towards the Athlon 800 or 850. rich-c: told Jack Pines about them since he's been lacking an Amiga kayboard Pamela C.: we need to get mom on the net Pamela C.: does the Amiga have a modem? rich-c: oh, she doesn't like to be on much, and when she does she uses this DOSbox Pamela C.: Yeah, but just think of the fun we could have if all three of us were out here at the same time rich-c: no, but it will support an external modem, and the 3.9 OS includes a browser Pamela C.: Of course, the rest of the group is shuddering right now rich-c: that couldn't be till we get DSL - or maybe networking would allow it Pamela C.: Oh, btw, is the satellite system in yet? rich-c: anyway, Guy, is the extra speed worth the price anywhere over 500 mhz? rich-c: Pam, I have the dish in the box and will be calling the installer tomorrow I expect rich-c: we have one of our Old Farts lunches tomorrow so I'll be out much of the day Pamela C.: It won't do you much good in the box, dad Guy B.: I think it would be. Prices on the CPU's are finally coming down. So, it would be worth it. Pamela C.: brb, folks - gotta eat before I faint - back in a couple rich-c: true, but the first race of any importance isn't until the first weekend in February rich-c: Computer prices are coming down, and CPU prices drop quarterly rich-c: still, I haven't seen as much movement as I expoected lately, Guy rich-c: the deals on memory and hard discs seem to get better bv the day Guy B.: Especially now that AMD has 1.2 mhz and Intel has the Pentium 4. Prices on the older processors should be coming down. rich-c: should be, just haven't seeen it yet james: 1.2 mhz? a 1/3 the speed of an adam ;-) Guy B.: That should be 1.2 ghz. James. Sorry about that. rich-c: yes, the design is a ripoff of the 6802 james: i'm just giving you grief :) Guy B.: Memory is probably the first thing I may get first. I'm going for 128mb. rich-c: that should be adequate to keep you out of mischief for a while Guy B.: Got a good one for you. This PC will support AGP. Which is a good one? rich-c: unless youre into heavy graphics, it's more than adequate room rich-c: We like ATI 'cause they're made here, or Matrox Guy B.: What about memory on those? Pamela C.: I've heard good things about ATI rich-c: what do you want from your video card? Games? Streaming video? Guy B.: Games, Wordperfect 8.0 comes with the system, and the Internet. rich-c: I think the smallest, cheapest ATI now is about 32 meg - they go up to at least 128 rich-c: If you want leading edge games, the current hottest ticket is barely enough Guy B.: No, memory on the AGP. Memory on the computer will be 128mb. rich-c: if you're more into Sims or Scrabble, and old video card will do Guy B.: I'm thinking of a 4mb AGP card. rich-c: Take a look at the latest ATI All-in-WOnder - I think it has 128 mb of video memory on board Guy B.: My current PCI video has 2mb now. rich-c: I have a 4 mb card and it has never disappointed me rich-c: when I was running on the old 386 I eventually went to 1 mb and that was quite enough Guy B.: I'll take a look at those when I go the computer show here in Chicago this Sunday. rich-c: my guess is that the current popular level one of 32 mb would be overkill for you Guy B.: I would agree with you on that. I budgeting this out by month until my overtime starts up again and that will be very soon. james: sorry to be so quiet, i think i should go now as my wife is home. Guy B.: Bye James, see you next week. james: definitely :) rich-c: OK, there's implications in that - great to have you back, James Pamela C.: Missed you, James. Come back soon! james: :D see you all next week! Pamela C.: absolutely james: *poof*

BobS: qwould give the ability to get $$$ immediately from customers before they forget about the stff BobS: didn't see what that wasw rich-c: I've been thinking of looking into Paypal rich-c: there was an article mentioning it briefly in tye local paper this week BobS: it used to be completly free but now there is a limit of about $2000 before charges I think rich-c: yes, for small operators they work on the float, but they want a cut from businesses BobS: check it out at http://paypal.com rich-c: I plan to do that BobS: no, you just use your email address and as long as you don't go over tha limit (using charge cards) you get charged 0 rich-c: yes, that was my understanding rich-c: the paper didn't say, but I believe there is a time between when they get teh payment and when they send it on to you BobS: and on all cash IN your account, you can spend or put it into you bank checking account and ther e are never any charges rich-c: they make their money on that float BobS: exactly rich-c: I'd expect their explanbation (legitimate) would be they wait to hear from the buyer the goods arrived OK BobS: but it is a handy way to have some cash outstanding IF youa also buy stuff and pay using payapl rich-c: that is not a small consideration BobS: check it out and report back next week rich-c: and most folks don't realize that that is how insurance companies make much of their income BobS: no, when buyer pays, you get!
