But I couldn't pass it up. james: i don't doubt there's a lot james: i'm a fast typist ;) rich-c: a new notebook? tell us about it rich-c: all I can say, james, is that when I turn up my toes, talk to Frances and Pamela fast Guy B.: It's a Compaq Armada 4220T with 96mb ram, Win95 and Office 95. From Access to Powerpoint. Use to be a Spacelabs notebook and got it for under $200. It's a Pentium 266MMX rich-c: because there will be about ??? cubic feet of Adams and supporting items that are going to GO rich-c: is that a PI or PII? james: well i'd be interested in hearing what you've got Guy B.: Pentium 1 rich-c: for emample, I have about 40 or more 3-ring binders stuffed with various club newsletters james: neat rich-c: that would be about a 12" screen also, Guy? james: wow. my server side spam filter has caught 80 spams in the last 3 days, if you can believe that rich-c: I could not begin to estimate how many thousdand floppy discs I have with programs on them Guy B.: Yes, I think you are right Rich. It also has a built in trackball. rich-c: right, Guy, a little faster than my Dell but basically quite similar rich-c: not great, but it will do teh basics and teh price certainly wasnt painful james: i'd probably be interested in an extra adam console. one of the units i did those power supply modifications to didn't fare so well ;) rich-c: the the the the the the the the the rich-c: there will that be enough corrections for the rest of this evening? rich-c: can you find a way to stuff that in your luggage?

But that is enough. james: brb rich-c: my Dell has two, handy to run say the modem and a pair of USB ports Guy B.: The good part is I can use all the external drives and modem that I had with the Dell for this system. rich-c: what did you have in the external drives?

Patricko: Hi all. this is my first chance to catch the chat in a few weeks. james: how's everyone? Guy B.: Been busy, eh! Guy B.: How's the weather down in Japan James? George W.: I was right about Clinton Patricko: Yes, I travel for work quite a bit. Ronald: well here James james: rainy and cool rich-c: in what way, George? good president but lousy husband? George W.: He was impeached james: you'd never know i had a 7' pile of snow 3 weeks ago rich-c: I'll take rainy and cool over blizzardy and frigid, james ;-] Guy B.: Up here in Chicago, it's cold, but a warming trend is finally coming. rich-c: you are effectively wrong, George Guy B.: Clinton was impeached, but wasn't removed from office. George W.: no, the vote was 228 yea to 206 nay rich-c: technically, I believe if any impeachment proceeding ever reraches teh floor of Congress, regardless of how idiotic the pretence, it is called impeachment Patricko: Hey Rich, sorry about the mixup on the check, I guess I can make a mistake after all, (don't tell my wife), ha Daniel Bienvenu: hello james... here it's very cold. rich-c: but unless an impeachment vote passes, the president is not impeached rich-c: as I said, don't sweat it, Patrick, we'll sort it out james: is there talk of impeaching the president? rich-c: the proceeding against Clinton was bogus from the get-go George W.: later he was aquitted of both charges at the trial, but he did go to trial james: ah, get my hopes up why don't you all. lol rich-c: there was no trial in the ordinary sense, George, jsut a bunch of Republicans libelling him on the floor of the hoouse rich-c: very handy for them , as they cant be sued for what they say in Congress Patricko: Hey Rich what about the intern on the floor of the oval office, ha rich-c: his sex life has nothing to do with his execution of his presidential duties George W.: an American presidnet doesn't have a "normal" trial Patricko: sorry, but any employee of mine who abuses their power and has sex in the office is fired Ronald: Politicians rich-c: of course he does, George, that's why Nixon had to be pardoned George W.: He wasn't even impeached rich-c: that's quite true, Patrick, I'm not defending Clinton's morals Patricko: OK, just a sore subject of mine Ronald: But there was never an answer to one question about Bill Clinton rich-c: the fact remains some folks with sleazy personal lives have made outstanding public contributions George W.: so there was no pardon ness asery Ronald: If he used the cigar in the manner described, did he then inhale? rich-c: you really don't have a clue about history, do you, George? james: ron, how is the web page going? Daniel Bienvenu: do you think scott will be online tonight? i didn't have news from him. I sent an e-mail last week and I received no answer. George W.: yes, I do straight and offical Ronald: been updating it weekly James, but still have some detail to finish in a couple of the sections rich-c: Nixon resigned because he would be impeached if he didnt, and teh impeadchment would be successful Ronald: Maybe this week.....(sigh) james: can you throw the url my way again? rich-c: but if he resigned he would not have office immunity from teh criminal charges he faced Ronald: members.shaw.ca/adamcon15 Patricko: so anyway, I hate to change the subject but I have a question about downloading CP/M programs and transferring them to my ADAM. any takers? rich-c: that's why he needed a pardon to resign George W.: you proved my point He never got THERE james: lol. any subject change back to adam is ok with me ;) fraid i can't answer your question though.. james: thanks ron Patricko: ha, ok, well at least I gave it a shot! Ronald: Patrick, there are at least two programs that will make the transfer for you Patricko: Cool, go ahead Ronald: only trouble is, they both transfer to EOS, not CP/M Ronald: however.... there's IBMto ADAM by Chris Braymen Ronald: and the ADAM Connection by David White Ronald: so then, you would have to use FC.COM from TDOS or CP/M to transfer the files from the EOS disk to a CP/M or TDOS disk Ronald: it's quite a process rich-c: that's OK, just if it can be done at all james: page looks nice ron. i'm still debating if i can make it or not. George W.: what is TDOS like? Patricko: Actually I was looking at the 22disk program. I contacted them and they said their program might work as a direct transfer. I run it on my IBM machine and it can read the ADAM 720K cp/m disks and vise a versa Ronald: FC.COM will read an EOS formatted disk and provide a directory of the files on it Ronald: Then you tag the ones you want transferred, and they're all done in one mass copy rich-c: David White left teh Adam community in a snit, I'm told - any copies of Adam Connection to be had? Ronald: But you need a system with 2 disk drives james: what's the story behind that? Ronald: I have one rich-c: TDOS is a rewrite of CP/M rich-c: do you know how the Linux server programme got its name, George? Ronald: piracy Patricko: I'm getting a copy of TDOS from Rich, I'm looking forward to messing with it james: ah George W.: has anyone thougt of putting up screenshots on any web sites? Ronald: there are some distinct advantages to TDOS over "Vanilla" CP/M james: were people copying his software? rich-c: do you know about flippy discs, Patrick? Daniel Bienvenu: for me... i still have problem with my Adam disk drive Patricko: are those the 160k disks that are written on both sides? rich-c: yes, sort of two for one deal rich-c: you'll get one disc, side 1 TDOS, side 2 docs james: i thought flippy disks were the 3.5" disks. 8" are flexi, 5.25" are floppy, 3.5" flippy.. no? rich-c: no, james, they're flippy because you can flip them over and use both sides separately, if you follow George W.: at least you have an ADAN disk drive I don't Patricko: cool, I can't wait to check it out George W.: ADAM james: yes, i follow Ronald: do you have any CP/M experience at all Patrick? rich-c: nice because Adam programs are so small, you waste over half a 320 disc usually Patricko: I used it and TDOS many years ago, but I remember most of the commands, ha rich-c: with flippies you only wasste the balance up to 160 Ronald: good Ronald: The Docs that Rich refers to should help. Pretty complete. George W.: HUH? Patricko: It's kinda weird the things you remember. I can still do stuff pretty fast from the C:\ prompt, ha rich-c: it's about splitting a double-sided disc into two single sides, George George W.: too deep for me Ronald: yeah, like 17059 and 17115 Ronald: two pokes for screen and background colour in Smartbasic Ronald: emblazoned in my skull
moved to room Meeting Place Patricko: thanks Ronald, I'm rebuilding my ADAM collection after a 10 year hyatis, ha
changed username to Pamela Guy B.: HI Pam Pamela: Hi everyone rich-c: great, Ron, but even I know SmartBASIC doesnt use a C prompt Ronald: Pamela, my son George W.: i thought disks only had a capacity of 160k Patricko: Hi Pam rich-c: welcome, daughter George W.: hi Pam james: hi pam Pamela: sorry, didn't mean to interrupt : ) Pamela: James, you got my last reply? rich-c: Coleco floppy drives were single-sided, 160K - but you could modify the discs, turn them over, and use teh back side too Ronald: rich, you could cause smartbasic to use a C prompt if you wanted. Ronald: but it would look a little wierd George W.: oh Ronald: without the colon behind rich-c: I got confused enough with teh cursor Ronald: right Patricko: Rich, I used to have the punch that you use to convert the disks but I threw it out last summer, (bummer) rich-c: and I think one thing that kept me away from MSDOS for so long was having a starting drive as C Ronald: still got one. It has been unused for some time Pamela: isn't it a standard one hole punch? Ronald: Actually, I got to detest flippies Patricko: actually it's square Pamela: oh Ronald: you had to have a label on the front, and a label on the back rich-c: that was a serious, major mistake, Patrick, because those things are not replaceable Ronald: difficult to see both at once
(Guy B. gives Pamela a can of Diet Coke.) Patricko: I never thought I'd use it again, ha Pamela: thanks Guy George W.: if i ever make it to one of these conventios I need someone to show me these things about ADAM james: i have a punch rich-c: I just put teh conventional label on teh front and specify front and back contents on it Guy B.: Your welcome. Aimee hasn't come on yet. Probably is tired from working today. Ronald: glad it's only a few things George, that's about all any of us can remember Pamela: If you come George, you'll have so many teachers you won't know what to do with yourself Pamela: Were you expecting her Guy? George W.: spend all my time learning Guy B.: I was hoping she be on by now. Pamela: no George, you have to do some socializing too - it Pamela: 's in the job description Patricko: How's this for weird, I told my daughter the other day that life is good because I can write data to a digital data pack again, ha Ronald: good for you Patrick Pamela: did she ask you what a DDP was? rich-c: how old is your daughter, Patrick? Guy B.: Pam, I have a new notebook. Picked it up at a computer show along with a 128mb board for my Athlon. Patricko: No, my kids grew up with the ADAM, they missed it Patricko: my daughter is 24 now Ronald: Time marches on Pamela: If you keep this up Guy, you're going to start rivalling Ron and my Dad for computer collections rich-c: Guy, don't rub it in james: speaking of time marching on, case will be 1 next month :D Ronald: would that I could stop it and reverse its course rich-c: Pam wants to upgrade her computer, but it's an Aptiva Guy B.: You might be right there. But, I'm using them at least. Pamela: James, that kid is sooooooo seriously cute! George W.: i couldn't for a wfile my floppies were writing bad blocks Ronald: aha james: lol. he wasn't so cute at 3 a.m. last night Pamela: I'll bet james: he's crawling around on the floor, babbling and exploring now Pamela: but even the : (( face is cute when they're that age Ronald: it's all good James Ronald: soon he'll be asking you for money Patricko: My first Grandkid is on the way, due in July Pamela: Congratulations, Patrick Guy B.: Bet you are looking for that Patrick.

George W.: format command leaves data too Pamela: where are you, Patrick? Pamela: and if I'm redundant, I apologize Patricko: I'm in Minneapolis, Pam rich-c: give it teh AOL answer "you have to get new hardware, and install the operating system again" Pamela: wow, Minnesota - that's a new one for us Guy B.: Must be cold up there? How much snow have you had this winter Patrick? George W.: on,no i don't Patricko: Well Guy, It's been a dissappointing winter, only a few inches of snow, we didn't get any until the first week of February Pamela: you want some of ours? We have lots to spare rich-c: your farmers are ot going to be happy about that, Patrick Pamela: have had since the first week of December or so Guy B.: Been like this in Chicago too. Not much snow, but it;s been awfully cold. George W.: my P100 freaked out on me Patricko: Very funny Pam, my Siberian Husky just loves the snow and cold and I love to see him play in it, ha Guy B.: What happened George? Pamela: sheesh, we can't get rid of the stuff Patricko: you are right Rich, we need some moisture Pamela: at least we'll have less chance of a drought this summer Guy B.: Seems the storms either have been going south or north. My niece down in southern Illinois have too much down there. George W.: for a while i couldn't even get the BIOS to flash on the screen Patricko: you are right Guy, the storms have all gone south of us Pamela: well, at least we don't live in Newfoundland rich-c: well, they've swung back up, because the Michigan and Ohio members wre getting lots of snow Guy B.: Back on Valentines Day. We were suppose to get 6-8 inches of snow. The storm went south and we got about 1 and half out of it. rich-c: you've heard our report from Toronto, and Fredin Dorval and Daniel in Quebec have got their big winter quotas George W.: had to remove all hardware to get it working again Pamela: why do you sound so disappointed Guy? Ronald: brb Guy B.: Why Pam. They told us a mild winter. Ha! rich-c: yes, that's what they told us too. Double ha! George W.: he he he he he he he he he rich-c: we did see one day with a temperature over freezing this month - just one, and no moe predeicted Guy B.: Look what happens. It's been colder than usual this winter and very little snow. The last one was about an inch. Pamela: I don't mind the cold - I can dress for it. I'll be remembering this in July when it's 90 degrees plus humidity Pamela: and only one day above freezing in January too rich-c: yes, someone was remarking there's no such thing as too much cold, just too little clothing Patricko: I just had Manitoba and Saskatchewan added to my territory Rich, when will it be warm enough to visit, ha? George W.: how about 110+? Guy B.: Two years agi\o. We broke record highs here in Chicago. 60 degrees in February. Pamela: just check the mosquito report Patrick : ) rich-c: well, I think you'll find their climate not too different from Minnesota's, Patrick Patricko: that's what I was afraid of...... Daniel Bienvenu: I saw a cartridge of my Coleco game Ms Space Fury on TV ... 18-february this year Pamela: nope, don't want that either George. Too hot. Guy B.: Ms Space Fury? rich-c: hey, that is neat, Daniel - where was it shown? George W.: we get that here Daniel Bienvenu: tv show ... like M.TV (or Much Music) but in french here in quebec. Pamela: and you're wondering why I don't live there? rich-c: how come they picked it up, Daniel? Daniel Bienvenu: in a special show for gamers... I saw great old game system like Atari 2600, Coleco, Intellivision, etc... Pamela: Daniel, do you have a CHOM radio station? George W.: everyplace has its disadvantages Guy B.: How can we forget about all those classic game systems. Daniel Bienvenu: Someone I know was at this show and talked about his cartridge Pamela: That's why I live in Toronto - fewer disadvantages. rich-c: terric- encourage him, especially whre Colecovision is concerned Daniel Bienvenu: CHOM ? only in Montreal... not in Quebec George W.: even there rich-c: is it a regular show, Daniel? George W.: did it crash? Pamela: brb folks George W.: whooly cow is 10:21 already? Daniel Bienvenu: It's a regular show named M.Net... normally to show new video games for Ps2 and XBOX. Daniel Bienvenu: it was a special old game system rich-c: but they do talk about teh classic 8-bitters; do they do so on a regular basis? Guy B.: Time flys doesn't it? rich-c: does when you're having fun George W.: boy does it Guy B.: I'm still transfering files from the P133 to the Compaq. rich-c: well, DCC is fast, but there are limits and some files are long Ronald: two computers, two different times, neither of which is correct Daniel Bienvenu: no, it was a special 8bits game system... but I digitailized the show :) Guy B.: I got the bps to 115000. So, it is going a little faster than I had it before. rich-c: I have a program checks teh atomic time and sometimes I use it Ronald: good idea Rich.I should get that going here. Apple, it seems cannot make a reliable clock chip rich-c: had a serious problem with a Compaq 420 56K modem I bought for my laptop George W.: i thought we were talking about the Clinton impeachement just today rich-c: took it back last week and exchanged it for a Xircom which seems fine - 115000 as Guy says Patricko: Hey I was thinking about the BC convention this year. Is there quite a bit to do in the area sight seeing /attraction wise? I need to sell my wife on the idea. rich-c: you mean you don't know about Beautiful B.C. - Super Natural? Guy B.: Ron, what do you have for us this year? rich-c: would you want to drive or fly, Patrick? Patricko: Fly for sure! Ronald: Patrick, you'll be coming to an area of Vancouvere Island that is rich with scenery (water and mountains). There is a lot to do here for those who don't Ronald: want to sit glued to an ADAM for 4 days. About the only thing I'd say is a tad sparse would be shopping facilities. Basically, you've got one of everything here, but Ronald: not much more than that. rich-c: it is a bit dodgy, but check out teh cost of driving to Winnipeg then booking Westjet from Winnipeg to Calgary and on to Comox George W.: does anyone know about DHEA? Patricko: good, the less shopping the BETTER! Ronald: Depends on what kinds of activities you like Pamela: gee Patrick, you sound like my husband : ) Patricko: Hiking, sightseeing, tours, that kind of thing Guy B.: Hey, we have a go getter here. Ronald: ok....well then you're coming to the right place Ronald: yes. Patricko: thanks, pam, I've had 31 years of practice, ha rich-c: is yours one of teh hot areas for whale watching, Ron? Ronald: about 45 minutes away and 5300 feet up is a breathtaking view from Mount Washington of the east coast of the island james: i gotta go. nothing like an argument to start the day
james left chat session Ronald: one only needs blue skies to enjoy it rich-c: hear you, james. let me know what you need. Guy B.: He left fast didn't he? Pamela: unless it's a book, a computer game or a joystick, he's not interested Ronald: better 30 miles north at Campbell River for whale watching Ronald: but that's about a 50 minute drive, so it's do-able in 1/2 a day rich-c: do they specialize in killer whales or grey whales? Ronald: I have no idea. Will have to find out Ronald: I've never watched a whale in my life Daniel Bienvenu: http://www.digitpress.com/reviews/msspacefury.htm Pamela: Ron, have you found a hotel yet? Patricko: it sounds great! Ronald: yes Pamela: and? Ronald: detail at Ronald: members.shaw.ca/adamcon15 Ronald: Courtenay Travelodge Pamela: gonna make me work for it, aren't you? Ronald: well certainly. Pamela: gee thanks Ronald: adjacent to Tim Hortons and Wendy's rich-c: Patrick, if you could somehow find the time, the drive is magnificent Ronald: or for those who need more healthy fare, there are other places withing walking distance George W.: Lipitor Time rich-c: we hope to be able to do it from Toronto - 4000 miles each way Patricko: It really sounds nice, I'll see if we can work it in. It would be fun. Pamela: if you ever get the van back, that is Ronald: But please - everybody, please do check out the website. Otherwise, you'll get behind on Backslash Bytehacker Guy B.: Travelodge. Sounds like a good hotel. Have you set the rates yet? Pamela: I guess that means I'm housesitting again Ronald: $69 Canadian per night Pamela: awesome rate, Ron rich-c: well, all we need now is an air cleaner and an explanation of an odd engine fault code Ronald: plus 7% plus 1.50 per day Pamela: that's double occupancy, I assume rich-c: you mean The Slash is there? You dodn't tell us that! SHAME!!! Ronald: either Ronald: they don't care Patricko: that is very reasonable Pamela: translates to about $40/nite US Patrick Ronald: against that, you're all going to spend more in air fare rich-c: yes, it's about $46 US Patricko: wow, that's beyond reasonable, that downright cheap! Pamela: Hey, I checked Westjet - $278.50 return per person from Hamilton to Comox Ronald: ok......that ain't half bad George W.: dollar doesn't go far anymore Pamela: brb Ronald: it'll go farther here George rich-c: Patrick, I've driven the Yellowhead, the TransCanada, the Crowsnest, I-80 and !70 to teh Pacific and they are all fantstic Ronald: Subject to mathematical analysis, I expect the cost to be same as last year rich-c: in short, about $300 US per person, or $450 Canadian Ronald: yo Pamela: back Pamela: ow, I think I burned my fingers Pamela: fork, gotta remember to use a fork Ronald: what, to light a cigarette? rich-c: what are you cooking, dinner? Pamela: no, to turn my chicken fingers over Ronald: oh Ronald: Well folks, I must away Guy B.: Ok, great Ron. You will have registration info up at your website shortly? Patricko: g'nite Ron Ronald: hopefully see ya's next week.....albeit a tad later rich-c: remind us to nag Dr. D. to check out that Westjet fare - it is dynamite Ronald: love ya's all!! Pamela: nite Mama Ron Guy B.: We'll see you next week. Bye Ron rich-c: I am sure he cannot do that well on any American routing
Ronald left chat session rich-c: see you Ron Pamela: only catch is, the flight leaves at 6:30 am from Hamilton Patricko: I better turn in too, I have an early meeting tomorrow. Nice talking to you all. Hopefully see you next week. Pamela: Hope so Patrick. Gnite! rich-c: be looking for you, Patrick Guy B.: Bye Patrick Daniel Bienvenu: bye patrick
Patricko left chat session Pamela: this is where you find out who your friends are. Who's willing to drive you to the airport at 4:30 am? rich-c: so with early checkin, you'd have to be at the airport about 4 a.m. - hmmm Pamela: makes you wonder if it's worth going to bed rich-c: still you could kill boredom by sleeping on the flight and still ariive about breakfast time Pamela: and you have to depart from Hamilton - there's no flight from Toronto during the week Pamela: figures - the one time it would be convenient to live 10 minutes from the airport, and I can't use it Pamela: would that be before or after I peel Russell's fingers off my arm? rich-c: I guess that's what that terrific fare is all about - wild departure time from minor airport Pamela: yeah, I suppose so. Pamela: at least it won't be as crowded : ) rich-c: Westjet is standardized on Boeing 737s, aren't they? Pamela: guess I'll have to check into short term parking out there Pamela: No idea - they don't tell you. Pamela: brb - going to get my fingers rich-c: they don't? most airlines tell you teh type of aircraft for every flight rich-c: though I suppose if they only fly one type they figure evryone knows Guy B.: I'm going to go too. I'll see how Saturday looks. Don't have to go into work that day. Otherwise, I'll see you all next week. rich-c: OK Guy, hope you can make it on the weekend
Guy B. left chat session Pamela: night, Guy - hi to Aimee rich-c: anyway, Pam, I think at airports anything over 24 hours is long-term parking at much better rates rich-c: but at a less convenient location Pamela: well there's long term - a week to a month, then there's short term - up to a week I think, then there's your average Joe parking lot rich-c: I believe there is a shuttle runs from Toronto to Hamilton airport rich-c: one of those 15-passenger vans, don't know rates or schedule Pamela: maybe I'll just rely on airport limos and be done with it. Can you see me trying to find Hamilton airport at 4:30 am? rich-c: you'll have to see how Hamilton classifies it; they are eager for business George W.: big snow Pamela: think they'd picv us up for free? ; ) rich-c: maybe you should go down the afternoon before and grab a motel room for a while Pamela: yeahj, thought about that too George W.: have fun rich-c: depends on how far you can recline teh seats in the Taurus Pamela: (this one finger typing sucks) I still have a lot of options to explore rich-c: put a sign in the window - "just snoozing - please wake us at 4 a.m." Pamela: I'm not even sure we're going yet rich-c: ye$ - there are certain con$ideration$ Pamela: well ye$, but also whether I can talk Russell into flying Pamela: he's not too keen on the idea right now George W.: in the $now? Pamela: also, if I get a new job, I may not be able to get away rich-c: yeah, even at 6.a/m/ in July it will be bright so it will be hard to sneak him into the aircraft rich-c: if you get a new job? seems I have been missing something here Pamela: I've decided to start looking Pamela: I'm tired of having my ego beat upon on a regular basis rich-c: I will save further discussion of that for a phone call - make it soon, eh? Pamela: 'kay Pamela: you have meeting on Friday, right? rich-c: not that I know of - has your mother been hiding things from me? Pamela: is that every other week or once a month?
