rich-c: test
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to George
rich-c: hello George
George: Hi Rich
rich-c: as usual, you re pretty prompt
George: i need to do several things tonight
rich-c: are you getting your share of our nice cold weasther?
rich-c: and what sort of mischief re you plotting now?
George: right now i'm waiting for the washer to become free so i can do my laundry
George: yes, it's very cold
rich-c: on that you would have to compare notes with Pamela - she has an apartment washer too
George: ha ha
rich-c: we were within a couple of degrees of 0F night before last
George: we were in the teens F
rich-c: by your standards, that's cold
rich-c: looks as if we wont break freezing for the next 96 hours or so at least
George: yes we got an artic blast
rich-c: the bad news is teh weatherman has now changed his t8une
rich-c: instead of a warm dry winter we're now predicted to get a long, cold one
George: we are supposed to get 3-6 inches of snow
rich-c: seems they now think the el Nino airstream will dive way south and suck Arctic air down onto us in passing
rich-c: even six inches isnt much, though it can make driving a bit tricky
George: AK is warmer than us now
rich-c: we are having occasional flurries but they barely leave a dusting
rich-c: got a warm front up there still, have they?
George: our weather forcasters are having fits
rich-c: that does not surprise me
rich-c: our guys are pretty much saying right out on the long range that it's anybody's guess
George: they say the snow is too early here
rich-c: anyway our vintners are already deleriously happy - they have managed to get a third of the icewine crop picked already
rich-c: and yes, Dec. 3 is the earliest they have ever had the grapes ready to pick
rich-c: by the way, I weighed the printer
rich-c: given the tolerances on the scale, it seems to be around seven kilos
rich-c: add a kilo for packing and stuff and it would cost about $10 US to mail to you

changed username to BobS
BobS: hiya fellas
rich-c: allo Robert!
George: it will take me a while to get the money order
rich-c: got here just in time; George seems stymied for anything to say
George: Hi Bob
rich-c: no rush George; if you want to take the risk, fold a ten-spot into a Christmas card so it wont show and send it that way
rich-c: anyway I will not be out of surplus Adam printers any time soon
George: time to check the laundryrom BRB
BobS: how's the weather over thewre rich????
rich-c: so how's things inGrand Rapids?
BobS: gettin ready to go cruisin
rich-c: we are out of the depths of cold but still not up to the freezing mark even by day
BobS: Fri AM we arte SOUTH
BobS: farn dingers and all
rich-c: right, whre are you going for how long this time?
BobS: be home next week SaturdayPM
rich-c: just you and Judy or in a group?
BobS: going to Cozemal Mexico, Jamaica and Grand Caymen
BobS: no, Doug & Meeka; my foks; sister and husband
BobS: 8 of us
rich-c: trust your ship isnt one of the ones with the Norwalk virus
BobS: HOPE not
rich-c: seems a fair few folks have had their cruises spoiled in the last couple of weeks with that
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to Guy B.
BobS: yes, and th papers here say it is NOT food or the ship, it is brought on board by passengers....
rich-c: hello Guy
Guy B.: Greetings!!!!
BobS: one ship they traced it to a passenger
rich-c: yes, it's a very nasty uncomfortable virus but not deadly I gather
BobS: hi Guy
rich-c: hey, here's something you guys can tell me
Guy B.: Well, got the heat back, but not until last Saturday.
rich-c: oh wow Guy, do they call you Bluenose for short?
George: i'm back, i wished my neighbor would remove their clothes from the washer
George: Hi Guy
rich-c: there's an etiquette about thse things, George, but I'm not sure what it is
BobS: how the heck did you manage until Sat?????
Guy B.: Well, I spent Thursday and Friday night at Jeanene's place while she was down south at her sisters.
BobS: tha works
rich-c: anyway, how big a hard disc will a Pentium 166MMX support (or the BIOS that goes with it)?
George: i have my oven on to keep warm
Guy B.: Should support up to the larger drives out there.
rich-c: more to the point, when did 2.1 gigs cease to be the limit?
George: when you need 60 gigs for all your files
rich-c: dont be a smartass, George
Guy B.: The new furnace was up on Friday, but there wasn't any heat coming out of it. The landlord had to call the guy back out. Apparently, the pilot was never lit. Then the washer went out. That was fixed Monday.
George: especilly with these new machines
rich-c: you are having a real fun time, Guy
Guy B.: My BIOS on the P133 supported only up to 2GB. But, I can get an upgrade that will support the newer drives out there.
George: i thought it was going to take forever to load my soundblaster audiology software
BobS left chat session
rich-c: OK, that gives me some idea - my old P166MMX desktop came with a 2.1 gig originally, but that was mostly a price consideration
Guy B.: It was no picnic Rich. The temp on Saturday before the heat was restored was 60 degrees. Now it's back to normal.
rich-c: you can live in 60 degrees, but it sure is no fun
rich-c: and we have certainly had a serious cold snap the last few days
rich-c: I finally relented and put the 3-1/2 beaver blanket on my bed
Guy B.: If you want to get a larger drive for the your P166, you can. When I got my 4.3, Western Digital detected that I had an older BIOS. So, a utility called EZ-BIOS was installed that will recognize the larger drive to Win95.
George: what happened to Bob?
rich-c: actually, Guy, I did put an 8.4 hard drive on it, but I may have been limited to 2.1 partitions
Guy B.: At least Abby, my dog. Took the situation with no problems.
rich-c: anyway, there is a PCMCIA hard disc of 8 or 9 gigs being offered locally at a good price
Guy B.: I divided my 4.3 up to four partitions and still I needed this EZ-BIOS in order for the system to recognize the larger drive.
rich-c: I am wondering if my Dell laptop would accept it
rich-c: don't recall having to redo my BIOS but may be having a senior moment - they are more frequent these days
moved to room Meeting Place
Guy B.: That's a good question. It should without any problems, since you are using a card and not the hard drive from the system.
changed username to Pamela
Guy B.: Hi Pam
Pamela: Hi all
rich-c: hello daughter, you're early
Pamela: where is everyone?
George: Hi Pam
rich-c: Bob just dropped out
Guy B.: Bob was here. Think he went down again.
George: Christmas shopping
Pamela: Just a warning - no filter between brain and "mouth" tonite
rich-c: that's OK - did you get a humungous email from Cynthia?
Pamela: no - should I have?
George: the turkey is all gone
rich-c: quite possibly - I got two copies which at over 140 megs each with attachements I could have done without
Pamela: what were they?
rich-c: considering you had an 18-pounder, George, that may be a triumph of sorts
moved to room Meeting Place
rich-c: some sort of funny being passed on
George: it went Saturday night
Pamela: oh, maybe she sent it to my work address

Ron: the Christmas card
Guy B.: What size disk?
BobS: I have used DCOPY many times and it works great

Ron: that also worked here, but Bob can

rich-c: Pam, why weren't you at work today?

Pamela: You're right, Dad - it would have been a lot more fun. Hence, the T1's
George: they all went to min
rich-c: T1s?
Xmascard.pp: Pam at the dentist, sounds like no fun.
Pamela: Tylenol 1's with codeine
Bella: only T1's
rich-c: you on the new computer, George?
Bella: that sucks
George: no
Pamela: hence, no filter between brain and "mouth"
Xmascard.pp: Lucky you didn't get the Howard-Fine-Howard anaesthetic!
rich-c: oh, thought maybe you had unresolved configuration issues
Pamela: so if I say anytning offensive, I apologize in advance
George: i must have hit a wrong or something
Pamela: and what's that, Rich?

Guy B.: The new furnace was installed on Friday. The guy had to be called back out since no heat was coming out of it. So, finally came back on Saturday.
Pamela: Okay, I'm back. Erin, I do have it - will email it shortly. Dad, tell Mom that the lower element is the one that's for heating and it's working fine as far as I can tell
Bella: cool -- thanks

Judy: at least you had a place to stay
rich-c: no Daniel, these are just sort of family mattersr
Guy B.: I brought Abby with me too and she chased Zoe, Jeanene's cat behind the sofa.
rich-c: Pamela has her own place and Erin is in Windsor
Judy: must have gotten really cold in there if the weather is anything like it is here
Pamela: Erin, just sent the address off to you. That's good until the wedding.
Guy B.: The temp in my apartment on Saturday was 60 degrees and boy did I feel it.
