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

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?

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
