rich-c: not that I know of, Bob
rich-c: haven't talked to her last few days though
rich-c: should be here by now - West Wing is long over
Judy: Meeka did you do your exercise?
Meeka: sorry, had to take care of a load of laundy and get a drink and then Doug wanted me to do domething......but I am here now
Meeka: yup all done for tonight
rich-c: we should have Pam here
Judy: good for you
rich-c: she should invite Meeka to Toronto - the Needlecraft Show starts April 19th
Guy B.: Just updated and uploaded my index page of my website. I've changed my e-mail address from Yahoo to Netzero.
Judy: she souldn' t get any more she has enough to work on
Guy B.: Sorry we abandened you Meeka.
rich-c: yes, Yahoo is getting difficult about email, isn't it?
Meeka: that sound like fun to me Rich
rich-c: from what Frances tells me it's a really big, very popular show
Meeka: no biggy, I was bouncing in and out anyway
BobS: yes, Yahoo is going to lose a LOT of users I would think
BobS: pay for email..............
BobS: nuts!!!!
rich-c: needless to say she'll be drafting the old fart for some chauffeur service, since it's out by the airport
Guy B.: Yahoo decided as of April 24th not to use Netscape messenger or Outlook to dump e-mail using POP3 access. If you want it, you will have to pay for it.
rich-c: wonder how long it will take MSN to get greedy with Hotmail?
BobS: once one does it it will not take long for others
Guy B.: So, if and when Dale changes the e-mail address back to Netzero. I'll keep Yahoo for a junk e-mail address for the time being.
BobS: but you won't even be able to access Yahoo without paying....that was my interpretation
rich-c: anyway, there are still lots of free webmail services around
Judy: would you like junk mail, Guy I get lot s from my family
rich-c: I get spam like there's no tomorrow - about four pieces for every legitimate message
Guy B.: Yahoo is still free. If you want to dump your e-mail using POP3 access to Outlook or Netscape messenger then you have to pay for it. They dropped FTP access for Geocities free websites unless you want to upgrade to their other services for a price.
Judy: these are all forwards, of forwards
Guy B.: I get that from my cousin in Cincinnati.
BobS: ahso!!!! thought it was PAY or be dumped!!!
rich-c: if they get shirty, you can always take a look at Lycos
George: or aol
Guy B.: And Excite has a free e-mail too. I have an address through them, but I'm not using it presently.
rich-c: George, AOL is a dirty word around here
Guy B.: Especially how pricey they are.
rich-c: they're so bad even my clueless young brother dumped them
George: i'm cleaning it up as fast as i can
rich-c: between AOL and the Augean Stables, try cleaning the stables - it's easier
George: hello
BobS: thought i got dumped!
BobS: LONG time between posts
George: is this working?
BobS: yu[
BobS: judy's is slow too
rich-c: is it me or is this server getting slow?
Guy B.: Ah, I was wondering what happened here. Now it flew off.
BobS: Judy is hooked onto mine and she is missing about 10 lies
George left chat session
Judy: just was wondering if I was still here
rich-c: must have been some sort of sudden overload
BobS: she can't see hers ata ll
BobS: Meeka still here??????
BobS: YO
BobS: Geo is gone
rich-c: so, is it Dale doing some memory-intensive work, or a general problem on the net?
Judy: this is weird I can type in a message but I am no t getting any thing back, so bye for tonight
