Dale: But I have time off work and we've been managing well. Pamela: Is Jillian planning to be off for the whole year?

changed username to Dale Dale: I'm back. rich-c: welcome back Dale Dale: I've just upgraded AdamCon.org and I think that there are still some kinks. BobS: they used to do that around here too Pamela: Dad, did I have one? Dale: It is possible that I have the chat server misconfigured even yet. BobS: the snow is almost gone here rich-c: maybe we should get Dr.D. to establish a backup site neil: Seens to be working fine now. Dale: I'll have to working on my monitoring script. Pamela: working okay on this end rich-c: fine here too Pamela: although my fingers beg to differ rich-c: loaded very fast but that's the new computer I think BobS: bye now Bob is back neil: Apparently they had 8 inches of snow just east of Oshawa, but it's basically all gone now. Dale: This morning I setup an automated script that turned off the chat server every 15 minutes. It is supposed to restart it if it goes down. Pamela: Nice talking to you Judy Dale: It just needs some tuning, I guess. rich-c: well, I reckon you're pretty adept at such things by now Pamela: All we had at this end was enough to make the roads slippery BobS: I may be back Bob said to get my computer goiing Dale: But what happened to Nick? I just got bounced too. rich-c: capital idea, Judy neil: That's true. Nick disappeared very fast. Dale: I wonder if my chat server is set to 5 connections at once. Pamela: Is that possible? rich-c: we'll know soon enough if Judy complains she can't get on - Bob will tell us Dale: I'm running green threads instead of red threads. Red threads work great with 15 people. rich-c: I'm not sure I want to know what that means Dale: That was the default after the upgrade. If it is a problem, I'll switch it. Pamela: Just talked to Russell, he says to say hi to all Pamela: Cell phones are wonderful things rich-c: Dale, did you solve the breastfeeding problem yet? Pamela: What's the difference, Neil? neil: You mean Dale, Pamela? Pamela: Sorry, yes Dale: Richard, it gets better each day. Jill went home at the point where we could rich-c: If Jill needs advice she can get it from the LaLeche League rich-c: the phone number is 416-483-3368 Dale: feed him on a combination of the usual was and pumped milk. Dale: He gets better at latching as time goes on. rich-c: their whole reason for existence is to promote breast-feeding rich-c: take their help and your troubles are over Dale: I've heard good things about the LaLeche League. rich-c: they are well-known and highly respected rich-c: if you lose the number, it's in the book Dale: It'll be in the chat log, which I'll update as soon as my sleep is more normal. Pamela: I don't think we can wait 18 years, Dale rich-c: yes, I seem to recall that paternal sleep is at a bit of a premium in the early days too Dale: I'm now at the point where, by following the baby's schedule I am almost well rested. Pamela: Best thing you can do Dale: Life is better with a nap in the afternoon. Pamela: a sentiment shared by much of the population rich-c: nice to be your own boss, moe or less, when it comes to schedulijg rich-c: Bob, is Judy trying to get on, and is she having problems? Dale: We've been sharing all of the duties, and Jill and Jeff are focusing on mastering breast feeding, and when ...

BobS: that's a good deal Ron: silence? Judy: my mom has a necklace, and saved ours Ron: have I been exhaled rich-c: so go get you're own - they're on Keele just below Lawrence Pamela: no silence here, Ron Pamela: tell me more rich-c: but be warned - the company that made them is out of business Ron: oh... ok rich-c: no support, no warranty - you're on your own Pamela: Maybe I'll just borrow yours Pamela: <grin> neil: Which company, Richard? rich-c: it only has about an 8 picture memory capacity; better have a laptop along to downlaod to Pamela: I'm working on that rich-c: they call it a JamCam from KBGear Pamela: However, since I got a new camera for Christmas and haven't mastered that yet, guess I'd better wait George: that's what aol tells me you are on your own neil: Oh yes, it's like the one Dale has. Pamela: George, we need to find you another ISP rich-c: ah, you're still here, George neil: (but I think his is an earlier version with no falsh) rich-c: guess I was right then - you know more than the AOL techs George: i'm lost in aol land rich-c: that's OK, we figured as much Pamela: quick, someone throw George a lifejacket BobS: well, just find another ISP locally and dump AOL, they are NOT inexpensive Ron: One day I'm going to send back to AOL all of the CD's they've sent me rich-c: do you think George will be able to cope with that much better service at that much lower a price? Ron: I will need special transport Pamela: Ron, it would cost you a fortune in postage Ron: I know Pamela: And I don't think they make a box that bitg Dale: The JamCam company just made the JamCam 3 in November. Are they really out of business? rich-c: And you'll need all those coasters when those Adamcon lushes arrive Ron: true Pamela: glad I'm not the only one who uses them that way BobS: hey, IF anyone wants them; I was to Walmart tonight and they have about 1 million of them in the front lobby for FREE rich-c: according to Consumer Reports, yes Dale: Their web site is still going strong. rich-c: they reported a recall on another KB Gear product but mentioned the company was out of business neil: They don't seem to be out of business. See www.jamonline.com and www.kbgear.com Still there--I just checked. rich-c: their website is still up though - I was able to download an updated driver rich-c: actually the driver is for the Kodak DK50, isn't it?

Ron: allows you to download from a digital cam into an album like environment Ron: then add music for a slide show BobS: welcome Engseth Ron: amongst other things Engseth: Yes, I'm monitoring rich-c: Dale, the driver package doesn't include the JamCam - I used the Kodak 50, is that right? BobS: so quite you is....... BobS: quiet Pamela: either works, Bob BobS: ok Dale: New on me Richard, I have a JamCam 2.0 and it hada JamCam specific driver as far as I can tell. BobS: see, there IS an advantage to having the us and canadian spelling differences, then either of us can misspell a word and it is still OK Dale: Engseth, you'll find we chatter about just about everything. If you have any Adam related questions, they are always welcome. Pamela: acutally, I meant that either context works - they're still different words Pamela: Nice try, though rich-c: Is Engseth a Trek or LOTR allusion? BobS: Engseth =Dr D. Dale: The JamCam 3.0 is really nice, with a flash and at Business Depot it was about $85CDN at 640x480. Pamela: Has to be LOTR Dale: That is the only thing I really lack on my digital camera. rich-c: could be Harry Potter Engseth: I get a lot of good info on email, and have no special questions. so I just thought I'd check in. Ron: Saw LOTR Sunday night Pamela: Nope, no kid wizards here Ron: think it left me behind somewhere Pamela: Did you read the book, Ron? rich-c: guess I made a reasonable buy, then. Have to try it out Ron: somebody oughta get an oscar for cinemaphotography though Ron: cinematography? BobS: I have a hard enough time just linving this life without trying some magical mystical one Pamela: the latter, Pamela: Ron Ron: exactly neil: Ron you have to remember that it's actually a single story that spans three movies. It's far from done yet. Ron: kinda gathered that rich-c: Dale, I have the KB Gear installation CD but the driver base it sets up has no JamCam in it Dale: Neil, have you had time to start on that book set I gave you Ron: Mother spent the last hour looking at her watch neil: Cinematography is correct. Pamela: For those who don't know, it can leave you hanging Ron: tks Neil Pamela: Numb bum? Dale: Which version of JamCam do you have? rich-c: 3 Ron: yeah BobS: looking ata ehr watch.......WHY?????? Pamela: "Is it over yet" Pamela: Teh movie is three hours long Ron: that's right rich-c: think I'll wait till it comes out on tape neil: I'm at page 225, about 80% through "The Ring Sets Out" (book 1 of 6) Pamela: Gimme a break, Dad, you wait for everything to come out on video rich-c: LOTR is a trilogy; what are you reading? Engseth: I thought there were only three books. BobS: SIX !!!!!!! I can't get engrossed in ONE book !!!!!! rich-c: maybe they decided to break it into six parts and sell each cheaper Ron: let's see, it takes me 5 years to read a 300 page novel...... hmmmm neil: I'm reading LOTR ... Ron: best I wait for the movie rich-c: oddly enough, first time I tried LOTR I gave it up after the first chapter - couldn't get into it Pamela: It takes me about 2 hours to read that Ron: excruciatingly slow am I neil: From the "Note on the Text": The Lord of the Rings is often erroneously called a trilogy, ... Pamela: love to read, do I Judy: they have to be good to keep you going through six books rich-c: then after a while I read The Hobbit and understood what was going on rich-c: from there, I barely put the series down till I finished it neil: when it is in fact a sinlge novel, consisting of six books plus appendices, ...

Hi Shawn Shawn: busy as usual Ron: aha.... somebody else from the right side of the Rockies rich-c: and up where it snows instead of rains, Ron BobS: now Ronald !!!! we are going to feel deprived or something Ron: Western contingent has become the northern contingent Dale: For Chreistmas I got Neil a boxed set of the 6 volumes + appendicies. Pamela: depends on which direction you look at it, Ron Ron: true Dale: I read the second Harry Potter book now. Shawn: The weather has been amazingly mild this year...just alot of snow. I'm not complaining rich-c: if it's got teh text, Dale, the number of volumes hardly matters neil: Yes, the Hobbit is first, but though there are references to it in LOTR, it's not really a necessity to read it first. rich-c: sort of like Churchill's WW2 memoirs - 6 vols but really only one book Dale: I'll read the third one next, while Jill is feeding Jeffrey (if we are ever awake enough for that)... Pamela: I've been through all four HP books twice and am breathlessly awaiting the fifth Dale: then the first one, once you are done with it Neil. Judy: wasn't to bad here today, took in the Christmas stuff thsis afternoon neil: The seven volume set is "Not for separate sale" but T-O-L-K-I-E-N (author's name) spans the spines nicely. rich-c: I found without the background from The Hobbit, LOTR proper bogged early on rich-c: sort of like trying to start in third gear, in mud Pamela: translation please, for those of us who are not standard tranny drivers Ron: try starting in 3rd gear on flat pavement rich-c: just trust me, it's something you don't want to try Pamela: ok rich-c: it can be done if necessary, if you know how BobS: vell, gees,....I puut it in da "D" thingy......and it alvays goes reel gut........

BobS: with a modem........] rich-c: how many of the computers wre you able to salvage, George? BobS: ';-) George: very poorly Pamela: did you at least trash the girlfriend? George: 2 out of 6 rich-c: healthwise or just generally, George? BobS: TRASH the girlfriend BobS: ouch!!!!! rich-c: as long as they wre the good pair, you should be OK Pamela: but what she did was criminal, Bob Ron: We must all agree that this sort of thing should not have happened to George BobS: yes. so......tell her that! Judy: what is the matter with the lady??? rich-c: at least you've retained your internet capability BobS: she don't care apparently Pamela: I don't know the whole story and I already don't like her Judy: well, maybe not a lady BobS: even Judy would NOT do that to mine stuff George: i had to get her to leave neil: I actually read 26 pages of Foreword and Prologue before getting into the actual novel. THAT'S hard going. Not recommended. Start at chapter 1 the first time. rich-c: Shawn, did you check out that Lindows website I recommended? BobS: for your co0mputer sanity BobS: i looked Richard, what's the deal with it????? Judy: I can't even take them apart!!! Shawn: sorry about that... I started making Miso soup and forgot about it. =) rich-c: don't you like the idea of another OS that can run Windows programs? Pamela: it's not taking them apart that's the problem - it's putting them back together! BobS: Pam is elected for the contest this year.....atgainst Frances !!!!!!! Ron: You can Judy.... we have pictures Pamela: No contest - Mom will win. I've never done it before Shawn: rich-c: yea actually I did check out that site. looks pretty cool...if it comes about George: now i have to pick trash for parts rich-c: I'm going to help Frances this time - and I'll bring my toolkit rich-c: just don't schedule it against a major race broadcast! Pamela: Okay, since Russell isn't conversant in Adams, who's going to help me? Judy: with a litttle help!!! BobS: you can help Rich......as long as you act like you have tow broken hands BobS: TWO Ron: You and Me Pam Pamela: You're on, Ron neil: Microsoft doesn't object to Lindows, per se, but they refuse to accept the name. Pamela: Got that, Bob? rich-c: more to teh point, Neil, they're grabbing the only available means to harass a smaller company BobS: WE GOT IT SAVED !!!!! Judy: We better print this rich-c: figure if they sue them hard enough, they'll go broke paying lawyers Shawn: Well its not like they were the first GUI to call itself windows either Ron: Only got one computer tonight, so I'll have to check Lindows after the chat Pamela: Just don't schedule it for first thing in the morning -none of us are at our best at that hour rich-c: there's a new article about them in today's Langalist, but I haven't had time to read it yet Shawn: X Windows was way before Windows. If Microsoft push a lawsuit i'm gonna laugh Ron: What's this, a cross betw Linux and Windows? rich-c: more or less Ron Ron: ok. Actually, there is also the WINE project rich-c: Dr.D. says it's the Linux kernel with a Windows emulator grafted on rich-c: he thinks MS can sabotage it neatly by changing their APIs Dale: Neil, I also read the 28 pages of foreward to Jill while she was in labour. It put her into a trance. Kinda dull. Shawn: Was it a linux kernel? Pamela: She probably needed it, Dale rich-c: yes, it uses the Linux kernel Judy: what is the Wine project

Ron: Where's Doug? Ron: echo Ron: echo Pamela: echo Meeka: out of town for a couple days (work related) BobS: Doug is NOT the epitome of laughter and conversation.............. rich-c: I don't want an OS where I have to get Bill Gates permission every time the OS crashes and I have to re-install it neil: Ron it's supposed to be much better than WINE. Pamela: Oooh, I love that - don't have to share the bed Meeka: that is true but... Shawn: I think its awfully brave of Lindows though. Middle of the road is a good place to get hit by on comming traffic both directions Judy: you could have come here, Ya, Ya Ron: noted neil Meeka: even when he is here it is a form of company Ron: As prez of the local Linux group.

Pamela: Russell and I finished 13 beginning of November Ron: no, what the heck is it... SD RAM? rich-c: probably neil: Memory prices are notoriously volatile.

I will forward Ron: yes, I think so Ron: email@example.com Ron: he may still be using firstname.lastname@example.org and that's not right any more, but I don't think I ever told him rich-c: I've lost all my email addresses - they're on the old computer and I haven't found out how to transfer them yet Meeka: Pam, I just sent them to Ron Ron: super, tks rich-c: @mac.com works too, doesn't it, Ron?

Pamela: Kimberly and Art were going to upgrade her 486 for her dad, but they can't even get it started rich-c: Kimberly wants an introductory machine for her father Pamela: the 286 works fine however Ron: ic Pamela: Since Ken (one of their boarders) is moving out and taking his computer, Jack needs his own (Jeanette won't share) rich-c: they should look at a P166MMX or higher Ron: suggest so, yes Pamela: know anyone who needs a boat anchor? rich-c: frankly, these days a 486 is really too far behind the trailing edge Ron: already have 3 here Ron: and a couple of 386's Pamela: recycling, here we come Ron: they are networking subjects Pamela: Actually Dad, for what Jack wants it for, the 486 is okay Pamela: just internet access, no email, some old card games and that's all rich-c: well, I know where you're coming from, but it really isnt worth the effort Pamela: not my decision rich-c: that is considering that the lower Pentiums are so cheap now Meeka: well, I guess I had best get going. It would proubly be a good idea to get some sleep tonight Ron: if you're going with a 486, it should be at least a dx2/66 with 16 meg of ram --- absolute minimum Pamela: Jack is not exactly technology friendly Ron: like Rich's suggestion better rich-c: and they will support Windows through 98SE and big hard discs rich-c: nite Meeka Ron: nite Meeka Pamela: Good nite Meeka Pamela: see you next week when your brain is back Meeka: ;-)
