George: Hi Rich
rich-c: hi George
rich-c: didnt see you immediately
rich-c: I play Free Cell while I'm waiting for folks to show
George: are we the only ones?
rich-c: I play Free Cell while waiting for folks to show up
rich-c: oops - think I fell off

changed username to rich-c
rich-c: OK am I back now?
rich-c: yes, I see I am
George: you are here twice
rich-c: it happens - the one is a ghost and will go away
rich-c: the applett lost me for a minute
rich-c: anyway, how are you feeling tonight?
George: not so good
rich-c: anything unusual or just the regular miseries?
rich-c: (by the way, took a look at your website last week)
George: my doctor refered me to a cardiologist for CHF
rich-c: well, I reckon your problems tend to be pretty hard on the ticker
rich-c: even if there's nothing specific, I suspect regular checks are prudent medicine
George: fluid keeps bulding up and its hard catch a breath
rich-c: and doctors practice prudent medicine because they don't like to be sued
rich-c: that sounds like congestive heart problems
George: yes
rich-c: that is not fun stuff - my young brother died of congestive heart failure
rich-c: or at least that was the proximate cause; the real cause was lifestyle
George: i'm doomed
rich-c: of course, we all are - the only questioin is when
George: it seem to be much faster for me
rich-c: remember I'm in my eighth decade, and the odds are much against my seeing the ninth
George: i may not reach my fifth
rich-c: the only dumb thing you can do is give up
rich-c: the way medicine is progressing these days. you're likely to live to see a cure for whatever ails you

George: i may not reach my fifth
rich-c: rt
BobS: hiya guys!!!!
rich-c: allo Robert
BobS: how's come you are twins Richard??????
rich-c: the applet lost me so I had to reenter, but it duplicated my name
George: i'm stuck
rich-c: you know how it works - does it often enough
BobS: bummer dude
rich-c: George is having a bad day - doctor suspects heart trouble
BobS: oh, oh
rich-c: well, a lot of that is curable these days
George: this window keeps sticking
rich-c: and what isn't curable this week just may become so next week
BobS: the computer window???? or your apt window????
rich-c: be glad the weather will let you open the window, George
rich-c: it's wet, freezing, with an icy northwest wind here
rich-c: how's the scene in Michigan, Bob?
George: my medical coverage doesn't cover new medical advances
rich-c: Canadians don't talk about medical insurance - it upsets our American buddies too much
George: i just get basic care
BobS: gonna be COLD tonight, had some rain this morning and predicting some snow tonight and tomorrow with 10 above zero temps tonight
George: if it gets too bad for me they just let me die
rich-c: George, what you got in weather down your way? Any rain yet?

changed username to Judy
rich-c: hello judy
George: just a little rain
Judy: Hello, Rich
rich-c: come to keep an eye on the old man, have you?
Judy: yes, someone has to
rich-c: way the east coast has been, every little rain helps
Judy: ya never know what he is up to
rich-c: yes, Judy, you never know what he'll get up to
BobS: I am very capable of making my own messes than you very much
George: rain in Philly makes everyone here silly
rich-c: remember the time he up and volunteered to run a convention?
Judy: he would just tell you 6'3"
BobS: talked into that one you see
Judy: that is right can't trust him
rich-c: 6"3" - what's that in metric?
BobS: oh sure, Pat said, nothing to it.........and if you do AC09, I will do much for planning
Judy: don't have a clue
BobS: and NOW........Ron did the same thing to us.......YOU have 14 and I will have 15......
BobS: is there a pattern here?????????
George: time to turn the TV off
rich-c: I don't know but I think I'm going to have to start treading softly
BobS: yea..........16 could be YOURS
rich-c: Bob, you're fairly experienced on tape drives
Judy: he is and I don't llike them
rich-c: on a recent disc to tape copy, a clean disc copy came out a bit wonky on tape
rich-c: that likely to be just cleaning needed or the speed control starting to go?
George: can you have one in philly? I might be able to come
rich-c: we'd love to have one in Philly but there has to be someone there who will organize it
rich-c: and Rich Cossaboon doesn't seem to be active any more
BobS: probably just cleaning OR you need a different tape
BobS: should copy just fine..........
rich-c: that was my first guess - must be longer than I thought since I cleaned it
BobS: it will do wonders sometimes
rich-c: give it a shot of electronic parts cleaner, should tell the tale
Judy: pretend it is Philly and come to michigan
BobS: no, NO, NO !!!!!!!!! just use some denatured alcohol on a cotton cloth and rub the tape head good, let it dry and then use
George: i need to grow wings
rich-c: why? there's still a good train from Philly to Chicago, isn't there?
BobS: but flying can get kind of dangerous up ther George
rich-c: and doesn't it go through Grand Rapids?
George: train is cost prohibitive
rich-c: I had thought Amtrack was cheaper than flying - am I that out of date?
BobS: train comes thru here.....YA SURE
George: it actually works out cheaper to fly
BobS: cheaper than fliying YES, but maybe still out of Goeorge's
BobS: George's financial realm for a computer vacation
rich-c: well, with Southwest and the others around, maybe flying is cheaper
George: i'm just getting by as it is
rich-c: if there's flights from Grand Rapids to Detroit or Buffalo, there would likely be a link to Southwest
rich-c: that would be most direct but Philly-Chicago and backtrack could work too
George: my food money didn't provide for any meat this month
rich-c: that does not sound like a budget that would cover a convention, I'm sorry to say
BobS: now that IS tight Goerge
BobS: farn dingers
George: me to
rich-c: naw, George, it's just that your keyboard can't spell
George: me too
