George: i was lucky to get your data drives Dr.Schematic: It was something from AP so it's probably around elsewhere. rich-c: our local papers are variable but with a lot of stuff they actually allow you to email it to a friend rich-c: in other cases you can use the alt + print screen method to capture it to the clipboard George: GWahl53937@aol.com Daniel B.: sorry .. but I have to quit now. bye! *poof* FredK: Salut Dan. rich-c: nite Daniel Daniel B.: see you next week George: nite Daniel Daniel B.: bonne nuit Ó vous tous!

You may have noticed. George: people come and go so quickly here Dr.Schematic: In today's _Plain Dealer_ there was a medical article of interest to you, I thought. Serene Highness: really ...tell me FredK: Simply Red! Dr.Schematic: A scientific study has shown that redheads have a genetically-different response to anaesthesia than people with any other hair color. Serene Highness: oh yeah it's all over the radio Dr.Schematic: Redheads need about 25% more anaesthetic to get the same level of anaesthesia or pain relief. BobS: I like that one too Fred Serene Highness: i'm quite special apparently Pamela: so how does one define a redhead, Rich? rich-c: Pam, you might want to note that - there are lots of red-haired Clees and you show a tint sometimes George: hit em in the head with a hammer Dr.Schematic: This confirms anecdotal reports beginning at least 100 years ago. BobS: not a red xcalp......got to have RED hair Serene Highness: wow Dr.Schematic: So now we can tell who is dying their hair... Pamela: well part of that tint is due to Loreal, Dad - but yuou Pamela: 're right, my hair does have red highlights FredK: and who is dying of pain... rich-c: yes, but long before L"Oreal you had red glints George: ME Dr.Schematic: Give 'em all a dose of ether, and if they go right to sleep...that hair ain't from Mother Nature! Serene Highness: hehehehe Pamela: perhaps that explains the dentist's inability to find the right place to deaden my jaw Dr.Schematic: That was one of the examples given, Pam. Serene Highness: i also somehow don't believe the hammer idea would work.....wanna know why George: color me dark brown Dr.Schematic: Redheads are allergic to hammers? Pamela: they run faster? Serene Highness: nope......the red head would get u first Serene Highness: hehehe Pamela: you're just full of the giggles tonite Erin Serene Highness: we've apparently only been known to Earth for the past 20, 000 years as well Dr.Schematic: So we need an infantry of redheads, so they can resist nerve gas in Iraq longer, right? Serene Highness: very very young breed rich-c: Pam - Dave sent me a forward - he can take a friend to SEMA Serene Highness: exactly Serene Highness: in ancient Russia..... Pamela: that's the thing in Vegas, Dad? George: BUSH says we are going to war Dr.Schematic: Sign her up, Geo. W.! Pamela: he can't sign her up, she's Canadian rich-c: yes, Pam, I've been checking out packages Pamela: and, she has friends in high places Dr.Schematic: He's going to annex Canada, didn't you hear that yet? Serene Highness: they believe that if you are on good terms with a red head and run your fingers through his/her hair you would have good luck George: WHO? Pamela: so that's why Marie plays with your hair all the time! rich-c: Bush is just yapping so you wont notice the mess he's making of the country until after Nov. 5th Serene Highness: exactly Pamela: who who, George? Judy: I think I could use the hair to run my fingers thru Pamela: you mean the friends? George: minus two years for Bush Serene Highness: and I love peace anyway....but you can bet your bottom dollar if you put me in an unfavourable position I'd win the war Dr.Schematic: Mine's too short to run anything through :-) Pamela: your choice, Rich Pamela: I can't imagine you with long hair Dr.Schematic: Never had long hair. George: i have long hair rich-c: and no one even remembers what colour my hair once was Pamela: is it red, George? Serene Highness: groovy Dr.Schematic: It was just over the tops of my ears in high school, and I used to have enough to comb to one side, but that's all. George: no dark brown Pamela: It was dark, Daddy - I do so remember (back 30 years or so) Serene Highness: i'd like to do a study of the red head phenomena Dr.Schematic: Mine used to be Swedish blond. Judy: don't you have pictures of you back than, Rich Pamela: I have your hair too - why do you think I'm such good friends with Loreal? Serene Highness: hehehe Pamela: I believe that Rich George: with big brown eyes Serene Highness: awwwwwwwww Serene Highness: like a puppy Dr.Schematic: By 7th grade, it was only that blond in the summer, mousy brown the rest of the year. George: lap lap Serene Highness: hehehhe Dr.Schematic: By high school, no more blond at all. Pamela: aw, a lap dog Serene Highness: oh oh rich-c: I got my first grey haris at 18 and progressed from there Dr.Schematic: White hairs appeared about 10 years ago, and are now about 50% of the crop. Pamela: and bequeathed them to me Serene Highness: wow rich-c: now I'm transitioning from grey to white, and well along Dr.Schematic: In 10 more years, I'll probably be snow white like my Dad and his Dad and *his* Dad. Pamela: I found my first at 25 Serene Highness: white's cool George: dog oh what a creature Judy: than I am doing well, with the gray I have Pamela: he's been salt and pepper for so long, white is a bit strange Pamela: you have grey, Judy? Dr.Schematic: Even found a white hair on my *forearm* this summer, that was weird (but should have guessed it would happen). Judy: yes, quite a bit Serene Highness: that's not a very nice q Pamela: you hide it well Judy: don't color at all, either George: i'm 41 and i have 1 gray hair Pamela: you're lucky Serene Highness: way to go George FredK: Sorry My Cel rang!!! gotta go biz call must take care..... Judy: it is getting a lot lighter lately FredK: Good night all Pamela: night Freddy Dr.Schematic: Joan's Mom is 77 and has nary a grey hair, doesn't dye it, it's all dark brown. Joan seems to be going the same way. Dr.Schematic: Bye Fred. Serene Highness: bye FredK George: nite Fred rich-c: if anyone asks why, George, tell them you're entitled to the odd break FredK: *poof*
FredK left chat session Pamela: I am jealous, Rich Dr.Schematic: Why? It's the head under the hair that's important :-) I'll stop now. Pamela: I must admit to a certain amount of vanity when it comes to my hair rich-c: quite true, Rich, but when it starts sticking up thru it... Serene Highness: vanity is healthy Serene Highness: i know Serene Highness: hehehe George: my father has no hair Judy: Bob's mom is just turning now, I think Bob will go that way, also, he doesn't have any gray, yet Serene Highness: so point in fact the head under the hair is important eh George rich-c: no, you two are definitely short in that department of the grandparent look Pamela: I loved my natural colour and was very disappointed when the first grey showed up George: just a shinyhead Serene Highness: hehehe Dr.Schematic: When I was in med school, there was a cueball-bald prof who was heckled mercilessly by the other faculty. BobS: I jsut want ot be a grandpa Richard, I don't want to look like one !!!!!! Judy: thanks that is nice to hear Dr.Schematic: One day a catcaller told him to put on a hat, the glare was blinding the audience. Serene Highness: oh my Pamela: you two don't look old enough to have grown kids, let alone grandkids BobS: and Judy: keep going you people are good for me BobS: heck IF the kids had moved the process along we could have 10 yr old grandkids Dr.Schematic: So the bald prof's retort was "That's just the solar power collector for my sex drive. Oughta try it sometime." rich-c: shows what living right will do for you - and how few try it Dr.Schematic: The class was ROTFL and no more catcalls from the other profs after that. Pamela: I like your prof : ) Serene Highness: oh oh oh lolol BobS: cool dude George: i thought i saw a flea Judy: that was good for a laugh, Rich rich-c: actually, baldness is a symptom of a healthy libido Serene Highness: oh my Serene Highness: uncle richard!?!? Dr.Schematic: Yes, a classic physiology experiment... Pamela: I think you're shocking your niece, Dad George: my father would proove you wrong Dr.Schematic: ...totally unethical nowadays... rich-c: science lesson, Rion - lots on here if you pay attention Dr.Schematic: Here it is: Serene Highness: well u got my undivided attention now Serene Highness: hehehe Dr.Schematic: A pair of male identical twins. One was in some kind of accident at age 18, got a brain injury, was institutionalized. Dr.Schematic: Back then, male+institution=castration. Pamela: ouch Dr.Schematic: So, life goes on... Serene Highness: & shock therapy Dr.Schematic: At age 50, the other twin has become typical monk's pate male pattern baldness. Dr.Schematic: The institutionalized twin has a full head of hair. Serene Highness: ahhhhhh Dr.Schematic: Institution physician sees the two together on a visitation day...and has an idea. Dr.Schematic: He injects castrated twin with *one dose* of testosterone. Dr.Schematic: Bingo. The castrated twin's hair all falls out to match the normal brother. Dr.Schematic: And it never grows back. Serene Highness: "normal" Serene Highness: wow that's kinda cool Pamela: neat rich-c: that sounds like a fugitive from an urban legends site

George: HEY! i want to die Guy B.: No you don't. We need you George.

Serene Highness: Brown cow Dr.Schematic: Both mixed at home. Ron: MMMMooooooo! Guy B.: I first choice is Diet Rite, with Diet Coke second. Diet Pepsi, don't really care for. Serene Highness: hehehe Pamela: this comes as chocolate, straight out of the carton, not mixed rich-c: it's been so long since I had a chocolate milk I can't remember when it was Dr.Schematic: I think our schools got Sealtest chocolate milk. Pamela: well then, you're overdue Ron: out here we have Island Farms Ron: which use Island cows BobS: figures......... Ron: probably because we're on an island Dr.Schematic: Grades K through 3, it was delivered in little half-pint glass bottles! It was a teacher's-pet job to get selected to help deliver milk. Judy: don't really like chocolate milk myself Pamela: with all due respect to our American friends, Canadian chocolate is much better than American Guy B.: Does anyone know if Lotus 1-2-3 can read CSV files? rich-c: which island? Jersey? Guernsey? Alderney? Sark? George: i'll take it while i can get it down tonight Ron: think so Guy Pamela: what's a CSV file? Guy B.: DOS or Windows? Dr.Schematic: Then the dairy stopped sending glass bottles, and it was all cardboard cartons after that. BobS: what the heck is a CSV file?????? Ron: comma separated values Guy B.: Comma Separated Value. Pamela: is that an extension? Pamela: ie .csv Dr.Schematic: Your basic ASCII text comma-delimited-record datafile format. rich-c: do you really want to know? Ron: must fire up my adjacent DOS box, where SmartSuite lives BobS: tha makes sense Guy.........to someone!!!! Dr.Schematic: Much better than spaces or tabs as delimiters IMHO. Pamela: don't bother Ron, I've got mine here Ron: pl Ron: imean ok Dr.Schematic: I think every spreadsheet ever written can read comma-delimited data, Guy. Guy B.: What I'm thinking of doing. I have Openfiler and thinking of creating those files to create reports. Dr.Schematic: Even SmartBASIC can INPUT data from such files :-) Ron: yeah, fairly standard import Guy B.: I have some Smartfiler databases. Pamela: In answer to your question, yes it will read CSV files George: i found some cp/m sites Guy B.: I know Quadro Pro and Excel will. Dr.Schematic: SmartFiler databases are a binary format, very icky. Ron: there.... you heard if first from Pamela Pamela: what version of 1-2-3 do you have Guy? Dr.Schematic: CSV...Coleco SmartVirus...yeah, antivirus software for your ADAM!!!! Guy B.: Openfiler will read Smartfiler database file and create a seperate file in CSV format. Ron: Ha Ha BobS: I neede dthat this week Dr.Schematic: Some would argue that any Coleco Smart___ software is a virus :-) Ron: I have to learn SmartBASIC 1.x and HTML fast Guy B.: I have a DOS version and maybe one for Windows on another hard drive that's not being used. Pamela: how old is it? Pamela: meaning, what release? Ron: have this nightmare that all of a sudden it's going to be April 2003, and nothing is yet done Guy B.: Old! Pamela: like long grey beard old? George: i hurt bad Dr.Schematic: I have an unopened box of Lotus 1-2-3 v.2.2 on 5.25" floppy right at my feet, as I type. Ron: and I have ALWAYS to go with that Guy B.: That program came from an olc PC XT that I backed up to floppies sometime ago. Dr.Schematic: Found in an old storage locker... Dr.Schematic: Never used. Pamela: you mean for a change, I have the most recent release of something and no one else does? George: i have a PCXT Pamela: quick, mark this day on the calendar Ron: how about Dbase IV on 5-1/4 inch floppies....complete with docs George: old machine Ron: that fits Judy: just told Meeka to come on Guy B.: I plan to convert some of the Smartfiler databases to Access and Dbase 4, but I do have new databases planned for Smartfiler. Dr.Schematic: Unfortunately, this version of SmartDrushel needs to be taken offline for a sleep-induced upgrade. Ron: still says Ashton Tate Dr.Schematic: Need to get up early tomorrow, and was up too early today.
