FreddyMaiden: Hi George
rich-c: not convinced you would find cable worth teh cost, which is pretty horrendoes
FreddyMaiden: really? then what is suggested Rich?
George: i have a belly ache
rich-c: stay with your dialup, make sure you are getting the full 56K out of it
FreddyMaiden: Hi speed
rich-c: unless you spend half your life downloading files, it should be adequate
rich-c: I'm assuming you do have a 56K modem
FreddyMaiden: yes sir
George: i only get 46k with my dialup
rich-c: well, you're on AOL and they are inefficient, George
rich-c: they put a lot of overhead into your linkages
FreddyMaiden: I have a celeron 56k lying around.
rich-c: remember also that no one gets a true 56K, the phone lines won't take it
George: other dialups average the same here
rich-c: how do you know your dialup speed, George?
George: it says the connectio speed when i sign on
rich-c: reminds me, Fred, what kind of computer are you using?

FreddyMaiden: The sun may rise in the east but it sets in the west...taken from Shanghai noon
rich-c: oh, are you putting an addition on the school or something?
james: no, it's not my construction. they're building all around the house in what used to be rice fields. we're literally surrounded by bulldozers and steamshovels on all sides.
james: and i'm at about my wits end.
rich-c: someone developing a subdivision around you?
james: yeah, this town-government that's run by slack-jawed inbred idiots.
rich-c: oh well, think of all the customers who will be moving in - and meanwhile, get a set of noise-cancelling earphones
FreddyMaiden: Or a mega sound system...

Judy: great, after all the uproar
BobS: had to use a shotgun, but yes

rich-c: the traditional white shotgun, of course?
Judy: she almost called it off on Friday
Pamela: what????
BobS: ya sure mon
Judy: you have to know Mandy, that explains all
Pamela: okay
Pamela: she wouldn't be the first bride with cold feet
rich-c: and she stuck with it after you let go of her throat?
Judy: but it did turn out really great
FreddyMaiden: now with wet ones
George: whats that stange clicking sound?
Pamela: just as long as your brain don't freeze you're okay
Judy: that is true, but it had something to do with his lawsuit, real mess
rich-c: do we want to know about that?
Judy: that is about it, Rich
rich-c: I'm sure we'll get an earfull at the 'con, when you've calmed down
Pamela: I want all the details when we see you
Judy: probably not, he had a work accident, trying to get paid for it
Judy: that would be easier
rich-c: you do have Workem
Judy: will show the pictures at that time also
George: i'm getting messy
rich-c: you do have Workmen's Compensation in the US, don't you?
BobS: workers compensation insurance
Pamela: you mean WC Dad?
Judy: yes, we do
Pamela: yes, the employer should carry it
FreddyMaiden: hopefully neglagence isnt proven
rich-c: in the US you never know - they're kind of behind the times
Pamela: but it's a policy like any other insurance policy
Judy: be nice, Rich
BobS: hey Richard, still got ADAM's shipped to US for $100?????????
rich-c: yep, in fact had an inquiry from Florida couple of days ago
Pamela: Judy, I told Kimberly about the 2.5 week wedding - she was amazed
Pamela: says she's going to need a year to plan hers
BobS: from Alan Ricotta perhaps??????
George: illegal operation
rich-c: yes, but Kimberly is organized - she will do it right, with no cold feet
Pamela: after chasing him for 7 years, she'd better NOT get cold feet
rich-c: that's right, Bob, did you send him?
BobS: think that was the guys name
Judy: it can be done, was all ready by 11 am Sat
BobS: nope just told him yes have ADAM's for $100 shipped to his door

FreddyMaiden: Just bought it quite recent and found your chat thanks to it
George: faster than my k6 500
Guy B.: Ok, I have an old Mac Performa here at my place and I'm was thinking about bringing it up to the con and donate as a grand door prize. It has the monitor and some software.
rich-c: what did you have previously, Fred?
FreddyMaiden: MICRO PC/XT took pic of it and my Adam will send to you once downlded.
BobS: bring it Guy, we can 'fix' it so that Ron wins it and he can haul it to Vancouver Island
rich-c: wow, you sure made one big jump - running Windows XP, I suppose?
FreddyMaiden: Yes
FreddyMaiden: it was about time
Pamela: That's cruel, Bob
Guy B.: I'll test it out here before I bring it up to be sure it works. Either Ron or Dr. D. would be the one's interested in it.
rich-c: I'm still happily perking along on Win98SE
Pamela: me too
Guy B.: Who's got WinXP?
George: me too
FreddyMaiden: do you like it?
FreddyMaiden: Ido Guy
George: i mean 98se
Meeka: Doug runs that on his desktop and laptopo Guy
rich-c: yes, and I don't have to ask Bill Gates permission to install a new CD-R or such
Guy B.: I'm running Win98SE on my Athlon.
Guy B.: You Fred. Any problems?
FreddyMaiden: Cant stop laughing
Pamela: we're still running 98SE on our computers at work
FreddyMaiden: NOPE
FreddyMaiden: Work is Win98 aswell
BobS: isntead of stuck in the 50's, I am stuck in the 95' that is........
Pamela: actually no, we're not - I take that back
rich-c: I don't want anything to do with that activation copde business
rich-c: maybe it's because I'm too expert at crashing computers and having to re-install
Pamela: we're running the network version
Guy B.: Using Win2000 at work. Fred, you are my guinea pig to test out my new project to see if it runs on WinXP. It's 90% done and it will be tested with Win95, 98 and ME.
FreddyMaiden: Work makes contrary

Ron: Brother Dave and girlfriend arriving tomorrow from Calgary
George: i got stuck in defrag
Ron: Sister Steph and boyfriend arriving Friday from Edmonton

BobS: how's mum taking all this??????
Ron: it's the one time of year when all the beds actually get used
Pamela: Folks, gotta go for a few minutes and move my car - be back as soon as I can
rich-c: so you've gotta move, Ron - no settling for second best
Ron: she's ok - but tired
Meeka: ok Pam
Guy B.: Don't take long.
FreddyMaiden: Pam is that because of those time limits on each side of street?
George: i smell pizza
Ron: Had pizza for lunch
Ron: Meatlovers
Guy B.: Sausage? Bring it my way.
Ron: from Boston
rich-c: now that's a temptation, George
rich-c: but resist it - think of that BMI
BobS: heck no freddie.......Pam just liikes to move it every 3 hours so the battery doesn't die!! ;-)
Meeka: ok, night Deb
George: 37.5
Meeka: oops
Ron: there's plenty of BMI to go around
(BobS winks)
FreddyMaiden: Some strange people ay?
FreddyMaiden: kidding
(A dog howls in the distance)
FreddyMaiden: had to specify that
rich-c: likely she has it in the visitor area for her building and has to put it downstairs in her proper space
Guy B.: That's my dog.
FreddyMaiden: There we go!
Ron: Bob my son
George: smell is driving me crazy
Ron: I'm not sure how intelligent I'm going to sound on the session about rebuilding hard drive directories
BobS: Ron, me dad.........
BobS: oops, guess not. eh????
Ron: trying to remember stuff, and it ain't there
BobS: why not, just think instead of sleeping
BobS: we can make it a hands on session
rich-c: it's OK, I'll bring along my drive with the fibbled EOS directory and you can fix it
BobS: we WNAt particiaption here ya know
Ron: well, it's going to have to be a collaborative effort
BobS: good idea Rich
Ron: Guy Cousineau knew all that stuff, but I'm not sure if I ever did
Ron: sounds good Rich
rich-c: unfortunately, we can't get him to come any more
Ron: pity eh?
BobS: seems to me you DID a session a few years back.........
FreddyMaiden: Why is that RIch
Ron: Oh I wouldn't be at all surprised but that was then.....
rich-c: I can see that by 'con time, I'm going to be glad to have a truck
George: can anyone tell me why my disk defragmenter gets stuck at 41%?
Ron: mine is 32% George
Ron: must have something to do with the Rocky mountains
rich-c: Freddy, he does software maintenance for Agriculture Canada - I think he's a little too advanced now
rich-c: of course, one can suggest that he learned all his basics on his Adam
FreddyMaiden: too advanced to teach us still?
George: is my harddrive about to die?
rich-c: too absorbed in other things, I think - there wre issues in his personal life, too
FreddyMaiden: OIC
rich-c: George, which defrag program are you using?
Ron: Windoze (under System tools)
FreddyMaiden: George My XT gets stuck while counting the K's when it starts and jams at timesà
Ron: very slow process George
BobS: hd may not be dying George, but need a full format and start over becasue a lot of junk is in the way
FreddyMaiden: can it be the BIOS?
rich-c: not necessarily, Ron - there are many others
Ron: I usually put it on when I go to bed and let it run all night
George: windows me defragmenter
Ron: That's the one I've used.
rich-c: did you do a scandisc first?
Ron: yes
BobS: around here with ol douglas, nothing lasts long enough to NEED defragging
FreddyMaiden: Yes
Ron: Now using Norton System Works, which is also slow, but at least you can see that it's running
Guy B.: You should always do Scandisk first before running Defrag.
Jeff Mitchell: The defragmenter that comes with Norton Utilities is good, but takes a while to run, it isn't really any faster
Pamela: Adventures in parking 101
Ron: What Pam, was the car still there?
BobS: had fun eh????????
Judy: that bad, Pam
FreddyMaiden: paralell?
Ron: cereal?
Pamela: well the building only has limited number of visitor spots and I was parked in one of them - the super buzzed and asked me to move it
rich-c: I tried the Norton defrag, but it and the Windows one have different ideas of what belongs where
George: i did thorough scandisk
FreddyMaiden: Rich was right about the parking
rich-c: and I find Norton a little too assured about its own opinions for my comfort
Ron: Quite frankly, I prefer to wipe the hard drive completely clean every 6 months (fdisk) and start all over
Pamela: fun is, the guy who parks at the opposite end of the garage from me ( and therefore has to back all the way down the length to get into his spot) was the other one moving his car
Guy B.: Then you have to restore everything and that takes time.
Ron: an evening, yes
rich-c: George, when you are running defrag, do you click on the "details" box?
Guy B.: Too much of a headache for me.
George: no

FreddyMaiden: Dan,Rich va taider c sur!
BobS: 'ok Daniel..........plug disk drive INPUT port into either plug on the ADAM console using the same 6 wire cord as the keyboard uses
BobS: ya sure Pamela
Guy B.: Great. Since we haven't heard from him in a long time. Thought he might have forgotten.
BobS: I think
newcoleco: Someone said there is a adam disk drive manual somewhere in the internet but I can't find it
BobS: don't think so
rich-c: send me your questions - though fair warning, I'll have to answer en anglais
BobS: don't need a manual......wasy to plug in and use
FreddyMaiden: Dan as tu un disk manager?
rich-c: if you need a manual I can probably send you a scan
BobS: after convention could copy and email pics to ay
BobS: you
Pamela: George, you still got blue smoke?
newcoleco: ok, I have a box "Smart Filer" with a flopy disk inside "Smart Filer" and a manual.
rich-c: if so, grab it all quick and stuff it back in
George: my disk has a hole in it
rich-c: OK, that's fine
Pamela: that can't be good
Pamela: which disk?
George: the slave
Pamela: a hard disk, in other words?
rich-c: how can you see a hole in a hard disc?
George: yes
BobS: back to disk drive.....switch on back must be set to DRIVE 1; cable from INPUT port on drive to ADAM console (either plug in)
BobS: power plugged in and turned on at the same instant or before the ADAM is turned on
George: my case is always open
newcoleco: Where on the Adam? I see only two holes...
rich-c: Daniel, you have a Coleco Adam floppy disc drive, is that right?
BobS: use either one, both the smae
BobS: same. like a ;pone plug in
BobS: phone
newcoleco: yeah! I have n Adam disk drive
FreddyMaiden: phone jack hole on left of console
BobS: BUT it uses a 6 wire cord, not a 2 or 4 wire like a telephone
Pamela: I am making notes here - may need this info in a week or so
BobS: there WILL a quiz at ADAMCON Pamela!!!!!!!!
rich-c: the flooppy drive ports on the Adam console are one on the front (often used for keyboard) and another about centre left side, way down towards bottom
newcoleco: Comment dire ... J'ai déjà plugé dans le input mais sur le adam je ne sais pas où le pluger.
George: i saw light shining through a hole in the disk
BobS: oh, oh......I missed that daniel
rich-c: OK - bien - cherchez a la rive gauche
Pamela: he's already plugged in the input but on the ADAm he doesn't know where the plug is
rich-c: cote
FreddyMaiden: ya une plug à gauche Dan de le boitier en question.
newcoleco: the adam net hole?
rich-c: tu as raison., Daniel
BobS: that's what they called it
Ron: nothing like good Fringlish
Pamela: c'est vrai, Dan
newcoleco: I tried but it's not working...
FreddyMaiden: you said it Ron
Pamela: and here I was thinking they were speaking Bling
FreddyMaiden: More like slang though
Ron: on peut supposer qu'il-y-a un mot en francais pour "plugger"
FreddyMaiden: brancher Ron
Ron: good
newcoleco: I see the two red lights on the adam disk drive .. always turned on.
FreddyMaiden: connecter is more frenglais
BobS: hmmmmm....think Daniel needs a copy of disk drive manual
Pamela: ya think?
Ron: Our friends south of the border will never again understand anything we say
FreddyMaiden: good start
Pamela: mais avez-vous un en Francais?
Ron: but then, probably that won't change much
BobS: nope. only bottom one is supposed to be ON until drive is working on a disk.......
BobS: is the ADAM also turned ON ????????
newcoleco: I tried two different Adam computers, 3 different cables, the input and output holes...
rich-c: OK, but the powr light is on, which is good, and the read light may be good or bad news
Pamela: is there a disk in the drive?
BobS: IF adam is turned off , then both disk drive light s will be on
newcoleco: There is no disk now in the drive
Pamela: d'accord - c'est bien
rich-c: how long since the drive has been cleaned?
FreddyMaiden: my thoughts exactly!
newcoleco: I found this disk drive in a flea market...
BobS: and it may have a fried controller board
rich-c: I regret to say, drives get sent to flea markets when they don't work
Ron: Incoming asteriods must be destroyed before the impact the mothership
Ron: I don't know what the hell Jeff is playing over there, but it sounds serious
FreddyMaiden: h
FreddyMaiden left chat session

Ron: NewColeco...just for your info, there are always about 6 threads in this chat room
changed username to FreddyMaiden
BobS: can only send it to rich to check it out completely
FreddyMaiden left chat session
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to FreddyMaiden
rich-c: what wiould I know about checking out disc drives? I have fine of my own I can't get working
newcoleco: I needed an adam disk drive and an adam computer to test my Coleco creations... Coleco emulators give me some wrong reactions.
BobS: well you could at least make sure it is or is NOT working.........
FreddyMaiden: h
Ron: We need a session at the 'con on disk drive troubleshooting
rich-c: that's true
Pamela: are you volunteering Ron?
BobS: they works or they don't!!!!!!
Ron: I got some too that are 'tempremental"
rich-c: what Daniel really needs is to find a way to get himself to Adamcon
George: i'm back
BobS: me too. some take a warm up time, some taake a cool off time after running while
rich-c: that would tell him about his drives and his software problems
Pamela: wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a new drive?
BobS: yea where???????
Pamela: Dad has some, I think
BobS: ah richard????????
Ron: I have one good one left. Two are on the edge
BobS: what ya got new form MI??????
FreddyMaiden: must speak to dad aswell
Ron: and the 3-1/2, which is too damn slow for anything except backup
rich-c: what I have are the MI drives and they are shockingly pricey
rich-c: I paid a ton for them and have to get it out
BobS: not compared to a good Coleco drive
Ron: Now If I could only get a power supply for the MI 5-1/4
BobS: how much????????
BobS: Ron take it along!!!!!!
BobS: possibler??????
rich-c: neww MI 320K $200 US = ship
rich-c: that's +shipping
newcoleco: tell me more about Figeau. where it is?
BobS: tha's what I paid for drives back 10 years ago
Pamela: maybe it is cheaper to come to the con : )
Ron: you want me to bring it?
rich-c: I thought it was outrageous when I paid that for my two and haven't changed my opinion
FreddyMaiden: Maybe where is it again?
BobS: and that was for 160k ADAM disk drives
Ron: How am I going to explain it to the customs officers?
Judy: we could make room
BobS: yes BRING IT and we will try to match it up
Pamela: ship it Ron
Ron: ok, you're on
BobS: I don't have an MI drive to know what it takes
rich-c: Figeau is a group of shops catering to tourists mainly in lower town.
rich-c: just mentioned it because my cousin is married to the owner
Pamela: which cousin?
Ron: It's the same connector as the ADAM power supply into the ADAM itself
BobS: it 'may' take the same power as the hard drvies and then it will be easy to match it up
Ron: Well, it ain't doing diddly squat sittin' here
rich-c: sorry, I'm lost on the Ron/Bob thread - what is the question?
Ron: So there it shall be
Pamela: which cousin?
rich-c: Joanne
Ron: should I bring the powerless MI 5-1/4 drive to the con?
Ron: To which the answer was, "why the hell not?"
newcoleco: be right back
Pamela: doesn't enlighten me much
FreddyMaiden: I bid goodnight to all........
rich-c: why would you bring the drive to the 'con, Ron?
Pamela: Goodnite, Freddy
Meeka: night
newcoleco: bonne nuit fred!
rich-c: Freddy, sorry you can't stay longer, espeically with Daniel here, but - bonsoir
Ron: perhaps somebody can devise a power supply for it
BobS: bring the powerless drive with you if possible RONALD
Pamela: give it to Dale
BobS: night Freddie
Ron: It was one that Howard Pines worked on for me at ADAMCON 10
Ron: in fact I left it for him there
BobS: and had it running?????
rich-c: I can read you the specs off the power supply if that's all you need, Ron
George: nite Freddy
Ron: He sent it back to me last year with PJ and Bob, but no power supply
FreddyMaiden: need to sleep for early rise but will look forward to next chat,à bientôt Dan!
FreddyMaiden: tks all
Ron: so here it sits..... unserviceable for want of power
FreddyMaiden left chat session
BobS: what was the problem?????disk drive or power supply?????
Pamela: oh that one - I remember you asking PJ about the power supply now
Ron: you got it Pam
rich-c: haven't a clue whre Mark got them, but I can give you the specs on the powr supplies he provided
Pamela: to which PJ replied something unprintable
Ron: Disk drive, so far as I know, is fine. but I have no way of checking it
BobS: well Richard, bring a power supply wo we can test it with the drive and then we will know EXACTLY what ps we need for him
rich-c: you could ask Mark or Scott for the info; maybe Mark still has a space (if he'll talk to you)
Ron: Scott, last time he was on here, said he would send me a power supply.
BobS: and DAAT didn't happen
Ron: Like many things in our world - for which I am responsible for some - it never happened
rich-c: that has implications, doesn't it?
Pamela: nag, Ron - it works wonders
rich-c: maybe you should nag him a bit - these younger folk sometimes need reminding'
Ron: the thought had crossed my mind.. Roundtuits, you know
Pamela: I resemble that remark!
rich-c: I also suspect that as long as the outputs meet the minimums the exact specs aren't critical
Ron: necessity is the mother of invention. I survive. here with other drives.... so nothing gets done at either end
BobS: power supply can't be that hard to duplicate, just need one to get specs
Ron: am sure it must be standard voltages. Only thing that's different is the plug to the drive. 9 pin
Ron: and of course, what voltages go on what pin?
Ron: Will try and follow that up with Scott before next week
rich-c: OK the drive is made by Ault Inc. in Korea
Pamela: Bob, is there anything we should remember to bring next week? I'll be in Windsor on Wednesday night and may not be able to get on chat
Ron: Meanwhile, Jeff continues to combat evil forces of the universe
BobS: with correct ps, the rest is DUCK SOUP
Ron: using my fastbox duron
Judy: clothes for hot weather!!!!!
rich-c: Input 120 VAC, 60 Hz, 0.7 amp
Ron: humid?
Pamela: done - anything else?
BobS: uh....dont' forget Russell.........
Guy B.: Ok, folks, got to go. See you all next Wednesday.
Ron: I don't do well in hot weather. Maybe I'll bring some rain and wind
Pamela: darn, I'll have to put him on my list
Ron: take care Guy, and remember
Pamela: g'nite Guy
Ron: don't forget the earplugs
Judy: there is air in the hotel
BobS: nite Guy
rich-c: nite Guy
Guy B.: Won't need them Ron.
Judy: nite Guy
rich-c: Pam, the tapes?
Ron: good.. we need something to breathe
George: nite Guy

BobS: but the 'air' is only for breathin!!!!!

Pamela: I'll leave it to you to navigate the airport
BobS: no plans Pam lots of restuarants
Meeka: no problem Pam. we know where it is lol
moved to room Meeting Place
rich-c: that's his way of saying he's going to Hooters, Pam
Pamela: we'll be there fairly early if we get a reasonable start from Windsor
changed username to Ron
BobS: AND hooters is actually CLOSER than Old Country Buffet
Ron: Sorry Rich, seem to have a problem with my mail box at the moment. Unable to confirm it's there, but I'd imagine so
Pamela: not if Judy has anything to say about it
Ron: probably got teleported to the other side of the universe
rich-c: no I gave it to you in the chat, you didn't notice?
Ron: no.
rich-c: never mind I will email it to you later
Ron: that would be better
BobS: take voltage readings off the pins and map it richard
rich-c: expect it before midnight your time tonite
Judy: I have not been there, maybe we should
Ron: ok.... be good all
Pamela: nite, Ron
Ron: :)

Judy: bye Meeka
rich-c: nite Meeka, see you next chat - or the day after
Meeka left chat session

Pamela: he'll have lots of time for chat - he has three hours in handd
newcoleco: you chat every wednesday?
Pamela: Yes, Dan
Pamela: 9:00 pm EST
rich-c: yes, Daniel, every Wednesday at 9 p.m., and some of us sometimes on Saturday at 3 p.m.

BobS: then try it and come on back
rich-c: yes, the first game doesnt start till 7.30
Pamela: e-mail or phone?
rich-c: phone may be smarter
Pamela: okay will do.
Pamela: now I'm really outta here. See everyone Wed if I can get the laptop to work, Thursday in person otherwise
BobS: so we (me and Judy) gonna bug out now and see ya'll later!!!!!!
BobS left chat session
Judy: bye pam see you next week
Pamela: good nite
Pamela: poof!
rich-c: OK, Bob, see you two Wed we hope, Thurs for sure
Pamela left chat session
rich-c: well, Geroge and Daniel, seems we're down to the last few
newcoleco: before you leave, I want to say I see all your "This Week With My Coleco ADAM" pages. many good informations.
rich-c: Daniel, I hope you didn't find all the crosstalk too confusing
newcoleco: crosstalking... confusing... yeah it was confusing for me
rich-c: oh, those columns wre by Rich Drushel; I'm Rich Clee
George: oh i forgot all about the chat
rich-c: not that I didn't do some Adam writing too, just not that particular series
newcoleco: oops, my mistake...
rich-c: I'm Canadian, in Toronto; Dr. D. is a professor at Case Western in Cleveland
rich-c: that's why our backup chat has a URL
newcoleco: I didn't notice the little c beside your rich nickname.
newcoleco: I'm sorry
rich-c: no need to apologize; that is done on the assumption that only the usual group will be on
newcoleco: I don't know if I can do something for your adamcon
rich-c: actually, the other Rich uses Dr. D. just to prevent such confusion
newcoleco: If I can't fix my actuel coleco project I will have nothing new to show.
rich-c: what we will do if Rich Cossaboon ever checks in from Philadelphia, I'm not sure!
rich-c: wrong answer, Daniel - showing the project tht needs fixing will allow the gang to suggest how to fix it
rich-c: as you may have noticed with Ron and the power supply, we ar here to help each other
newcoleco: I was thinking to finish a new little coleco game project for the adam news network... but without any good testing with a real adam computer.
newcoleco: I don'T know if you understand me
rich-c: pity Scott Gordon wasn't on - he's working on a Coleco game, too
George: i think i have to go
rich-c: and Dale Wick gives seminars at Adamcon on writing games
newcoleco: Oh... bonne nuit George!
George: what?
rich-c: right George - see you next chat - take it easy
newcoleco: good night!
rich-c: have to make allowances for George -he's an American
newcoleco: good = bon, bonne
George: nite, see you Sat.?
newcoleco: night = nuit
rich-c: hope so, George
newcoleco: so good night = bonne nuit
George: ok
George left chat session
rich-c: as you might have guessed, George needs a certain amount of indulgence
newcoleco: Me too! Sometimes I don't understand what you say!
newcoleco: Well, I'm writing Coleco games in C so I have no control on the final result... it why I need to test my creations.
rich-c: don't worry about it - if there's a problem, just ask
rich-c: we'll try to find another way in English or come back to you in French
newcoleco: If I can test myself my games I will be able to fix bugs very quickly.
rich-c: OK, you are into areas of which I am ignorant
rich-c: my guess is that in order to test them, you need to port them to an Adam
rich-c: that would mean assembling them to run within TDOS (CP/M)
newcoleco: That's right! I need to see if the result CRASH or WORK!
newcoleco: I use Hitech-C compiler and a CP/M emulator (for DOS)
newcoleco: I don't have any software for the Adam
rich-c: again, you are beyond my knowledge - but Dale Wick or Dr. D. or Scott will have no problem
newcoleco: I just have a SmartFiler
rich-c: well, first we have to get your Adam working
newcoleco: And also some tools I found to dump dsk image on disks
rich-c: Then, be aware that both Bob and I sell Adam stuff
rich-c: my retirement hobby is A.D.A.M. Services, a dealer in things Adam
newcoleco: I tested my Adam with a TAPE and it's working ... I have Buck Roger
rich-c: right - there are lots of programs for the Adam including many third-party games
newcoleco: It's only a problem to use the adam disk drive or the disk drive itself
rich-c: in fact, the nicest interpretation of Tetris I've seen is Addictus for the Adam
newcoleco: Addictus, I tried it with an emulator
rich-c: well, we will have to see if your disc drive can be made to work
rich-c: the usual secret is cleaning
newcoleco: So I have to open it?
newcoleco: I'm not an expert in electronic
rich-c: if that doesn't work, you'll have to see if Howard Pines down in Ft. Walton Beach, FL is willing to help
rich-c: he is retired now but owned and ran a computer repair business for years
rich-c: no, just buy a floppy disc cleaning disc and use it
newcoleco: wait a minute... the Adam services? I see the web page.
rich-c: these consist of a dummy disc, of tissue paper instead of vinyl
rich-c: and a bottle of cleaning fluid you pour on the dummy disc
rich-c: then you just put it in the drive and let it spin
rich-c: actually, not my web page, it's a listing on Meeka's
newcoleco: I have a cleaning kit for PC ... a 5"1/4 floppy disk with a bottle.
rich-c: that's what I'm talking about - just use it
rich-c: my suspicion is that you will have to use it several times
newcoleco: ok, I will use it.
newcoleco: I found the URL :
rich-c: by the way, taking disc drives apart is a cinch - it's putting them back together that's a problem
newcoleco: wait a second.. i need to translate your text
rich-c: yes, that is Meeka Slopsema's website - she is Bob's daughter-in-law, married to son Doug
newcoleco: err.. the translation is horrible
rich-c: what is giving you trouble?
newcoleco: a cinch
rich-c: ah - ca veut dire, c'est facile
newcoleco: ok, now I understand
newcoleco: :)
rich-c: any time you have difficulty feel free to ask
newcoleco: ok
rich-c: I guarantee, your English is better than my francais
newcoleco: Well, it's only my first year of chating in english
rich-c: and entre nous, I suspect Freddy's joual would confuse us both!
newcoleco: I still need some help to write the right words.
rich-c: expect to find it here - as mentioned, there are several Canadians who understand and will enforce patience
newcoleco: confuse who and who?
rich-c: you and I
newcoleco: me?
rich-c: in my travels in Quebec, I have noticed the accents are very regional
newcoleco: that's right
rich-c: I'd guess Freddy's accent is very Outaouais, yours would likely be more central
rich-c: and I know French in the Gaspe is not like in your city
rich-c: just like I have troubles with what folks in the US South claim is
newcoleco: I don't know if you see on TV : FORTIER.
rich-c: English
rich-c: the only things I watch on TV are motor racing and CFL football
newcoleco: ok, I see FORTIER at the english channel and there are only some subtitles at the bottom on the screen. It's only to refer on which french accent I can talk.
rich-c: anyway, Daniel, I promised to email those specs to Ron by midnight, and time is getting on
newcoleco: ok, sorry!
newcoleco: I don't see the time ...
newcoleco: I have to go now
rich-c: so send my your email address so I can send you the manual
newcoleco: ok,
rich-c: and if you have any questions, fire away
newcoleco: bonne nuit Richar C.
newcoleco: It's Richard or just Rich?
rich-c: bon soir, mon ami - a demain (or samedi, or la mercredi prochaine)
newcoleco: bonsoir mon ami à demain
rich-c: and it's as you chose, formal or informal
rich-c: I answer to both
rich-c: au revoir
newcoleco: chow! ;)
