changed username to rich-c rich-c: All hail! Bob S: another hotel (same company, differetn name) has pool but tiny maybe possible passable meeting room Bob S: HAIL KING RICHARD rich-c: see we're discussing site for Adamcon Bob S: would like pool IF any possibly use it, but the other is better all around Bob S: ya mon Rich Drushel: "King" Richard? Rich Drushel: Has Elizabeth II been deposed? Bob S: (makes him feel good) "-) rich-c: there is one, but his last name is Petty Bob S: :-) Rich Drushel: Rats, I was hoping for a Rump Parliament or something...
<undefined> left chat session Bob S: we get nice rooms a full contintental breakfast w/ some hot stuff, complementary meeting room, + rich-c: naw, Her Majesty is doing a pretty good job, except at raising the kids rich-c: and everybody loves her mother Rich Drushel: I won't dare to show my face at 0E, Bob, I will be put to shame... Bob S: huh????? Rich Drushel: You got a nicer hotel deal than I did :-) rich-c: he's gonna need it; our dollar is down to 62 cents Rich Drushel: Just hope it's attendance-independent for the rates. Bob S: well, the whole deal is depentant on 10 rooms for free meeting room...... Rich Drushel: Richard, when my high school band went to Niagara Falls in 1976, my recollection is that $CN=$US; is that correct? Bob S: have counted on 9 for sure, and # 10 could be hospitality f not used........ Rich Drushel: I think we can get 10...that's better than the 15-20 we had to get. rich-c: could well have been teh case, Rich; there was a time when our dollar was higher Bob S: only drawbacks are no bacon and scrambly eggs and no pool Bob S: but that is the case in all we have found Bob S: close by that is
moved to room Meeting Place rich-c: I can live without bacon and eggs in the morning
changed username to Judy Rich Drushel: Maybe we were clueless tourists...but when we were there, the US and Canadian money sorta circulated in a mixture. Bob S: the big hotels don't want us, and the smaller new ones either don't have a meeting room or no pool rich-c: hi judy Rich Drushel: The Mighty Mitchell won't, though--guess I'll have to bring an electric frying pan for that crispy bacon :-) Rich Drushel: Hi Judy. Judy: Hi, Rich rich-c: let's just say if you wave a Yankee buck up here now, it will not be refused Rich Drushel: I'm finally near a computer on a Wednesday night. Rich Drushel: Not at 1.00 : 0.62, I'm sure... rich-c: oh yes, the only issue is how fair an exchange rate you'll be given Rich Drushel: I'm actually in the robot lab tonight, running an extra session which will run 9:30 to midnight. Bob S: naybe one mornign we can go "out" and indulge......... Bob S: ahso Rich Drushel: How you fixed for equipment, Bob? Bob S: truth be told, the mitchell probably should NOT have the bacon anyway rich-c: why bother? I always come home from Adamcon heavier than I left as is Rich Drushel: Pat Williams from B.A.S.I.C. called me last night to ask me to take all her ADAM stuff or she was gonna junk it. Bob S: last count, about 20+ ADAM's, lots of mem xpanders, etc Bob S: wanna buy some?????? Rich Drushel: Sandy Schwering's, too. Bob S: take it Rich Drushel: Of course, no brainer.
moved to room Meeting Place rich-c: you'll get used to using the alpenstock to get around the basement
changed username to Meeka Rich Drushel: I'm going to Dayton this weekend, but will be passing through Pat's hometown on my way back Sunday. rich-c: hello Meeka Bob S: got most of Bob Blair's left over ADAM stuff from Florida now Meeka: Hello all rich-c: the whole family's here tonight Judy: Hi, Meeka Rich Drushel: All the systems have floppy drives, which is the main reason not to see them junked. Bob S: the one and only ADAMnet hd unit, some mini winnie boards, ide hd boards, mem expanders, pralle ports, serial ports Bob S: you get thye idea Judy: how was your night with the boys Rich Drushel: Pat also has a MIDI interface. Bob S: MR CLEE........also found an EVE sound digitizer, remember those???????? Bob S: I don't and have no access software that I know of Meeka: ok. they empted out all of the toys, like normal ;) Rich Drushel: If we got lots of newbies to the next convention, it might be auction bait...but not if it's the usual crowd: rich-c: never saw one, but remember the tales Rich Drushel: Like the French knight in Monty Python's "Holy Grail", "Well, we already got one, ya see..." Judy: is that all, they get the living room stuff and the basement stuff too rich-c: actually the Eve unit was a speech synthesizers, wasn't it? Bob S: found a 1985 article iin NIAD describing it and what it does Bob S: yes, and clock calendar ship incorporated into it Meeka: yes, but I only have toys in one place ;) rich-c: thought it was Syd Carter's digitizer that had the clock chip Bob S: got to email the world I have been amassing by email address of anyone who even bid on an ADAM article on Ebay Judy: when do you get to go to Sams? Bob S: nope, this one has it too Bob S: even has a BIG watch battery inside to run it Meeka: not sure yet. have to ask Doug Bob S: didn't know what it was fromt he lettering so the other night I took the sucker apart to look at it rich-c: never did figure out why Adam needed a clock, but I gather the TDOS crowd have uses for it Bob S: JUST TO HAVE IT!!!!!! also got a door prize one that Gene Welch made some years ago Rich Drushel: The EOS designers thought it did, at least the date, since there are date fields in the directory. Judy: Ryan was in bed by 7:30 again tonight, Dad thinks he hasn't got that daylight savings time yet Meeka: maybe not. Bob S: maybe not sessions this year just play time with all the creations and inventions made for the ADAM rich-c: goody! I'll bring the Adam mouse Rich Drushel: Well, I'll talk about anything you need covered, Bob, just ask, with lead time. Judy: good thing I was really tired tonight Bob S: and the hundred thousand dollar question......?????? WHy did not Coleco put a clock in?????? cost? schematics? Bob S: should have been an EASY thing to incorporate Meeka: I am now too :-) rich-c: their way of avoiding Y2K hassles, no doubt Rich Drushel: Too cheap. Even the motherboard schematic refers to one of the center expansion slots as a "RTC card" (Real Time Clock). Bob S: maybe they figured people would not use clocks OR home computewrs and the fad would die out Judy: they do take the wind out of your sails don't they? Rich Drushel: Look at the AutoDialer, there's an orphaned concept. Bob S: got wome of them too Meeka: yes. and in a hurry to Bob S: that is WHY we need the BIG meeting room, to set up all the ADAM variations and goodies Meeka: yes and the big one locks too. Judy: was trying to needle point but even that took to much effort rich-c: well, I imagine assorted Clees will take two rooms Bob S: yes, the meetign room locks up well rich-c: which is 20% of your target Bob S: planning on it Rich, that is why the August 8-11 date, Pam's request as well as Ron M and Rich D rich-c: ah, we are firm with that now, are we? Bob S: and the BIG plus is........it is right next door to the place we had AC09, so Ron can again Bob S: cross 28th st to go to Target!!!!!!! Rich Drushel: ROTFL Bob S: requesteed date, works for all contacted and the hotel is open for then rich-c: crossing 28th St is just a fantasy - no one really does it and lives Judy: there are more traffic lights now though Bob S: SO it WILL be Thurs Aug 8- Sun Aug 11, and get lost on the 12th !!!!!!! ;-) Bob S: but more hellium drivers too Bob S: usually on sunday mornnigns about 9 it is crossable Bob S: hell-yun
moved to room Meeting Place Bob S: about time Pam got here Judy: it is easy for us to get there though

Abrasiv1: in about 24 hours we will have that nice weather Bob S: no a/c, but really nice and pleasant Abrasiv1: but i doubt we will have to use a/c Bob S: John.......New Hampshire????? yes???? Abrasiv1: yes rich-c: yes, with any luck, John. Wonder if it will hold long enough for teh NASCAR race at Loudon? Abrasiv1: got the woodstove going tonite Bob S: ouch, thata cols???? Bob S: cold rich-c: the mornings can be chill Abrasiv1: when is the nascar race? Abrasiv1: was 19 here the other nite rich-c: our birds are emptying the feeder every day, and when I go out at night to refill it it is pretty chill rich-c: Nov. 24, John Abrasiv1: that is 19 degrees F Abrasiv1: we will probably have snow by then rich-c: we were nearer 19C today

Judy: hi, Guy rich-c: bob's a Michigander Bob S: Grand Rapids, Michigan, straight west of Detroit about 2 1/2 hours Meeka: ok guys, doug wants to watch a movie, so I am going to go for this week. see ya later Guy B.: Greetings All! Recovering again from another Windows 98 installation. I got hit with a virus. Abrasiv1: ah...been there once.......not Grand Rapids though Guy B.: Bye Meeka. rich-c: nite Meeka, enjoy teh show Bob S: get a REAL computer Guy,.......like an ADAM Rich Drushel: Nite Meeka. Bob S: bye Meeka Rich Drushel: Howdy Guy.
Meeka left chat session Judy: bye Meeka Guy B.: I have one!! In fact two here. Rich Drushel: Guy, Win98 *is* the virus :-) Bob S: what, viruses??????? rich-c: don't know where you get them from, Guy Bob S: I amm thinkin' Rich is right rich-c: been on too many "warez" sites? Judy: I hope not that is what I have Abrasiv1: Win 98...i finally went back to 95......i liked 98 so much Bob S: buys them at Best Buy Guy B.: No, some idiot sent me a file and my virus scanner caught it, but I ignored the warning and I couldn't bring Win98 up at all. rich-c: I just installed 98SE on my laptop - went on real slick Bob S: have no problem with 95, only got 98 on Judy's puter so the printer usb interface will work.....and that sucks anyway rich-c: yes, I got it in anticipation of getting a new computer Judy: mine works just fine Bob S: either that or the printer speaks french onlce in a while rich-c: I will NOT get ME or XP!!! Bob S: me is BAD NEWS according to Doug, he is playing with XP fore work as we speak Rich Drushel: MS is dropping support for '95, if they haven't done so already. Rich Drushel: '98 is to go at the end of this year. Rich Drushel: They want to force a 3-year upgrade cycle. rich-c: word on teh street is XP is nice if cleanly installed on a brand new computer Rich Drushel: Wouldn't surprise me if XP has a time bomb built-in. rich-c: but otherwise, forget it, and there are still hardware support issues Guy B.: My sister's computer has WinME on it. There have been some problems with it. But, I managed to backup my files to the other computer using DOS Interlnk and Intersvr. Thank heavens that I kept it. Bob S: what supportl, you just need to know someone who knows computers rich-c: I am not going to ask Bill Gates permission every time I want to put in a new hard disc or something Bob S: that is the bummer about XP, you have to ask permission each time to do something Guy B.: That goes double for me. Isn't worth the headache. Rich Drushel: Support as in, if your HD dies and you have to reinstall from the original CDs, good luck trying to find all the service packs and upgrade files at msn.com. Bob S: what a great world we live in, eh????? rich-c: well, all we need is for everyone to boycott Bill till he gets the message rich-c: fat chance, eh? Rich Drushel: WinNT 4.0 installs Explorer 2.0. msn.com *refuses* to accept connections from Explorer 2.0, so you can't even upgrade to Explorer 5.0. Rich Drushel: You need a "later" machine already on the net, or a Netscape install CD, to get a browser capable of downloading the Explorer 5.0 install app. rich-c: try going to Tucows or suchlike - they will have IE files Rich Drushel: I found this gem when setting up coleco.cwru.edu, the RealServer for the robot lab. Guy B.: Your right Rich C. About time we all told Microsoft, Hands off our computers. We own them, not you. Abrasiv1: maybe bill gates watched the movie Colussus too many times Bob S: should have ie on cd and winXX on cd and alything else you might want to install on 1 year old puters rich-c: Just have to all of us learn how to move to Linux - that'll show him Bob S: that is like a dos type base is it not???????? Bob S: rich, you are single again!!!!!!!! rich-c: no, Linux is a flavour of Unix Rich Drushel: Well, my next x86 machine, whatever it is, whenever I can afford to get one, will have *nix on it of some flavor. rich-c: yes, I noticed my ghost somehow exorcised itself rich-c: I have a Linux installation disc from Corel and maybe will try it some day Bob S: but am I wrong.......thought that Unix, Linux, etc were all plain screen cursor systems, unlike the Win click pics style Rich Drushel: There are Windozy-like shells available if you want them... rich-c: no, there's a Windows-like interface, though you can work in a command prompt mode Rich Drushel: I prefer multiple text-mode windows for *nix myself. rich-c: Like, there's a Dale and Rich option, and one for us klutzes... Bob S: yes, that is the one I need!!!!! Rich Drushel: Not so sure I'm not in the klutz category :-) Abrasiv1: But can you run programs like wordperfect etc on linux? rich-c: wonder if the Corel website still has their Linux stuff up? Rich Drushel: Yes. rich-c: Biob could download it and burn it into a CD for future reference rich-c: sure, you can get Star Office which is an integrated, full feature suite - free Rich Drushel: StarOffice, WordPerfect, these are graphical apps that can run under a Linux environment. Bob S: have to ahve Doug so that, got no cd burner here, that is still "test" technology, I can't be puttin' $$$ in experimental stuff rich-c: I'm feeling I need one rich-c: aside - Rich, you still trying to unload those zip chips? Bob S: what them????? Rich Drushel: Do you mean Mac 256K SIMMs? rich-c: think so Bob S: I got some of those, gonna hit Dale with them at AC14 rich-c: thing is, they'll likely fit Frances' Amiga Rich Drushel: I have a box full of 'em, doing nothing. You want them? Bob S: maybe can be used for new mem xpanders rich-c: yes, for sure Bob S: what speed?????? Rich Drushel: They were given to me by a sysadmin here...the box cost like $3K in 1992, worthless now. Rich Drushel: Don't know, they are for Mac Plus and Mac SE-30 type machines. 8-bit, non-parity memory SIMMs, 30-pin. Bob S: not worthless, Rich, just a much smaller niche for their use rich-c: if they work, a few of our Amiga buddies would welcome some Bob S: gotta have 150 nanosecond ships for the ADAM Rich Drushel: I took the box ostensibly to take out 4 of them to put 1 MB RAM in an SE-30. Never opened it up to do it... Bob S: possibly 120's rich-c: need to be put in, in a certain order, and stuff Rich Drushel: The box is at home, I trip over it every morning (literally), so I can look for the speed. rich-c: and on the Amiga board they are very fussy about fitting in
moved to room Meeting Place Rich Drushel: Apple Tech Specs website might say what they should be.
left chat session rich-c: you in and out there, John? Abrasiv1: no i don't think so rich-c: thought maybe that undefined changed to you, but guess not Bob S: nobody here though Abrasiv1: i was watching too and i could not tell Abrasiv1: i think they left Bob S: maybe a bounce in and out, in the wrong place Bob S: OR it is the mighty Mitchell on that Apple thingy again Bob S: and he can't get in rich-c: yes, I suspect teh sysop of my ISP is doing some work on the system tonight rich-c: had to redial to connect when coming on twice this wevening, and did get disconnect once while on Bob S: hey Guy!!!! you stil having so much trouble with Netzero?????? Guy B.: No. Maybe it's the computer you're using isn't it? Bob S: I finally dumped them and went with a little local out of city phone co who throws me right out int he mainstream Bob S: had problems on ALL computers, and could not get on with a 486 I have at work Bob S: part of the problem was theri special dialup software I think Guy B.: Netzero says a minimum P90 with 32 megs of ram. No wonder you had so much trouble. Rich Drushel: Hehe, NetZero works fine on my 486. Bob S: I got troubles with a Pentium 266!!!!! Bob S: I couldn't even get ON with any 486 i got here Rich Drushel: It complains about not being able to find Outlook, and then goes its merry way. rich-c: sheesh! my ISP would still accept me if I resurrected the old 386 Bob S: might be the dialups they have around Rich Drushel: I think it gives up trying to load its advertizing window, and just lets me have net.access. Guy B.: I reinstalled Netzero back on the P133, haven't tried it yet. But, it works just fine with the Athlon at 850mhz. Rich Drushel: This is with NT4.0 though, so YMMV. Rich Drushel: I dial in about once every month or so just to keep the account active. Bob S: the local phone co is that way.....486 33mhz w/ 9600 baud modem....works Rich Drushel: I got it at some ADAMcon or other. Bob S: they said they din't thin so, but it does Guy B.: Netzero recommends at least 28.8 modem. Abrasiv1: unlike AOL....which wants all and gives little Bob S: I am j;ust keepin Netzero fore the mailboxes and the free country wide access Guy B.: At the rates they charge. I can see it. Rich Drushel: 28.8K is what my 486 has. Bob S: when we go to Fl this winter to the in laws, I can use Netzero Rich Drushel: Not sure what NetZero's business model is...how can they give it away? Bob S: got local $8.88 Guy B.: Both my P133 and the Athlon have 56K modems. My notebook has a 33.6 PC card modem. rich-c: to me AOL proves only that BS baffles brains every time rich-c: crummiest and highest porice so-called service around, and most successful Guy B.: So, your e-mail address has changed again? Abrasiv1: how true Bob S: nope, which one you want.......adamcomputer @ netzero.net...rslopsema @ netzero.net...email@example.com Bob S: MUSt I go on??????? Abrasiv1: well.....gotta say g'nite all Rich Drushel: fearless_leader@absolute_power.org :-) Abrasiv1: g'nite all Bob S: got everything forwarding to Netzero and I pick them up there and send out on local ISP Rich Drushel: bye Abrasiv1 Bob S: mite John. BE GOOD Abrasiv1: always Guy B.: They haven't changed. You just got rid of Netzero Platinum then, correct? rich-c: nnite John come again soon Guy B.: Bye John.

Guy B.: I believe it's 40 hours, they changed it? rich-c: I have just settled for a hotmail account Bob S: Lst few days I have not noticed ANY banner bar, not even the little thin one, are you getting ANY??????? Bob S: yes, now it is only TEN hours Bob S: John from NH Guy B.: Got the thin banner bar. Comes on in a minute after I log on. Bob S: can't member his last name Rich Drushel: Sounded like people knew him, just not me. rich-c: I think he must live near Laconia - makes him laconic

Bob S: it is just MAKE BELIEVE you know Judy: watch and type !!! rich-c: I'm told if you have to watch tv it's one of the better choices Pamela: I know, but it's intelligent make-believe Guy B.: At least you can watch it later. Bob S: Meeka is watchin a movie and the computer phone line must be too short......... Pamela: Now I have to go back and watch it again so I catch the undertones and undercurrents Pamela: So, what was the pun? Judy: \that is one way to have something to watch rich-c: the nice thing about taping is you can fast-forward through the commercials - saves lots of time Rich Drushel: Someone from Laconia being laconic...your Dad was the perpetrator. Pamela: That figures Guy B.: Oh Rich C. I'm thorough with overtime. Probably for the unforseeable future. Bob S: Pamela,,,,,,,mark this down.........Aug 8-11, GR MI, USA Pamela: Is that firm? rich-c: is that a hint that you're thinking of reviving Saturdays, Guy?
