moved to room Meeting Place rich-c: yes, they can be taken down, but teh price could end up being pretty high james: i'm not a big fan of kim jong il and his cronies james: and i don't much feel like having nuclear war heads seated on dae pong missiles launched in my back yard

Guy B. on NB: 128mb rich-c: OK, I can see where that might improve things Guy B. on NB: I have a 256 and the original 128 in there. rich-c: I have 256 MB and suspect any more would not really be worth the effort rich-c: let's say even though I have a lot of TSRs I see nothing to suggest memory overload

Pamela: ahhh Guy B. on NB: It's a two hour tonight. BobS: NOPE, english spelling !!!!!! Pamela: I know - that's why I was surprised to find you here rich-c: you mean that's how long the battery lasts or the program? Pamela: I must warn everyone, as tired as I am, there is no filter between brain and mouth Pamela: or fingers as the case may be rich-c: no, there are differences between English and Canadian spellings BobS: got me.........
(BobS smiles) Pamela: me 2 Guy B. on NB: Oh oh.
(Guy B. on NB gives Pamela a can of Diet Coke.) Pamela: ah, caffeine Guy B. on NB: You need it tonight. rich-c: they are subtle, but for instance teh English sometimes use an "s" where we use a "z" Pamela: thanks Guy, I needed that Pamela: as in analyze? BobS: si senorita rich-c: yes, or organise Pamela: okay, that looks funnyh Pamela: organize Pamela: there, that's better BobS: and the canadian/british way of colour vs color........ rich-c: there we tend to go down teh line with the Brits BobS: and just WHY the heck do we spell differently???????? rich-c: same with ough - plough, etc. BobS: the Brits were the influence here also rich-c: yes, but you had simplified spelling advocates like Dewey, and saw their British counterparts like Shaw rich-c: and had cheap newspaper owners who wanted to save space and type and paper :-] BobS: BUT, then we got more news per inch, yes????? :-) rich-c: I guess :-]

George: Iam scrambled Pamela: what menus? Pamela: look okay to us Georege rich-c: that doesn't make sense; surely we ae all getting teh same applet loaded? Pamela: what menus? rich-c: file-edit-rooms..... George: you don't see my face Guy B. on NB: Abby got hit slightly by a kid riding her bike last Sunday. She Guy B. on NB: She's Ok Pamela: ah, in the about section rich-c: right, Pam rich-c: what's the matter, George, a bit puffy? Pamela: there it says beta 2 rich-c: heat getting to you? Pamela: poor Abby - did you poke a stick through the spokes? Pamela: see, I told you - no filter BobS: see whatcha mean Pam........ADAMCON.org screen shows beta 1 Pamela: thank you Pamela: and it didn't used to BobS: I knew ya weren't nuts or anything........... George: i did way too much today Guy B. on NB: I shook up the kid. Then the father wanted to start a fight. I walked away from it and let it go. Pamela: thanks again
(BobS winks) rich-c: I gather you folks aren't necessarily coming directly into teh chat page, then? BobS: well the "applet has to laod" BobS: load George: i did George: well from ADAMCON link Pamela: I go to www.adamcon.org/~dmwick/chat and get the spaniel chat screen which loads the applet rich-c: I got nagged by Pamela because she hasn't been able to get teh phone line for three days Pamela: and rightly so Pamela: it would be nice to be able to talk to you once in a while rich-c: yes, and then you phone just while I'm talking to teh doctor (or his office, actually) Pamela: which is why I prefer a busy signal to call waiting rich-c: well at lesst you knew when to call back Pamela: yeah, but at work that's never a guarantee rich-c: true, that's understood Pamela: yesterday i didn't come up for air at all between noon and about 5:30 pm rich-c: all I can do is tell you when I'll be clear Pamela: I didn't even get lunch rich-c: well at least you have the long weekend coming Guy B. on NB: Did I tell you guys I met another girl and her name is also Amy. She lives in the next block. Thanks to Abby. rich-c: So now you have Aimee and Amy? Pamela: and I can't wait. Saturday is going to be busy - I am shoe shopping for the wedding and then we're going out for my dress fitting Pamela: then we're addressing invitations Guy B. on NB: The first Aimee. We haven't seen each other in over a month. rich-c: we got our invitation from Elizabeth today Pamela: oh? planning a trip to Portugal anytime soon? rich-c: sort of time for a replacement, then? rich-c: fraid not - even though there will be teh two weddings there Pamela: it's about time you clued into the fact that dogs are girl magnets, Guy rich-c: yeah, work better than a good line at a singles bar Pamela: yeah, both of them in the same summer Guy B. on NB: You're right Pam. Abby knows. Pamela: there's no such thing as a good line rich-c: apparently Danny and his wife are going to live in the basement at teh house Pamela: yes, he mentioned that when I was chattng with him the other day rich-c: that will spare us some worry as to who will look after Alice while she looks after Gabriel Pamela: did they tell you Gabriel is planning to attend the weddings? rich-c: yes, we only hope that he can survive teh trip rich-c: it is going to be very difficult for everyone concerned, but they know that Pamela: yes, I asked about that but Danny says Gabriel is confident that he'll be okay rich-c: he was out on the porch in his wheelchair yesterday rich-c: not very talkative, but we exchanged compliments Pamela: enjoying the sunshine - he loves the sun Guy B. on NB: Got a question for everyone. Has anyone tried the Smartwriter on AdamEm printing on a inkjet printer? rich-c: on a north-facing porch there isnt much sun BobS: no Pamela: there's enough rich-c: I have a vague feeling I might have done so, Guy rich-c: in fact I think I had a problem at one point with AdamEm because my printer wasnt turned on Guy B. on NB: I haven't tried it on my inkjet yet. But, I have with the dot matrix. rich-c: and when I turned it on I think it did an Adam-type printer check rich-c: I think if it will work with a DM it will work with an inkjet BobS: agreed Guy B. on NB: I'll have to try it. I was going to write a letter with Speedywrite, but opted for Word 95 on this notebook since I want to use the inkjet for printing it. BobS: Judy is running an inkjet printer on the ADAM and using a generic dot matrrix driver. so ADAMem should work Guy B. on NB: Ok, I'll try it. rich-c: oddly enough, I used my actual (as opposed to virtual) Adam today Pamela: why is that odd, Dad? rich-c: had a short note to do and figured tyhe DOSbox would take too long to load and configue rich-c: well, I have not been working teh Adam very hard of late, Pam BobS: true......AND the only thing I really use the ibm for is to work with wbay thru the internet and search the net Guy B. on NB: Even though I've been using Word at work and Wordperfect on the other systems. If I need to write a letter very quick, then Adam will fill the bill. Heck, I used AdamCalc to figure my payments on my new car. rich-c: oh, I tend to use the DOSbox for almost everything rich-c: Frances has switched her tax calculations from Adamcalc to the Amiga program now rich-c: she then transfers it to teh DOS program she has to use for electronic filing rich-c: she is not at all happy about teh tax company's website - it's very slow Pamela: CCRA? Guy B. on NB: I used TurboTax this year, but I think that I will probably use another program next year after what I went through. Intuit used a new copy protection program and now they are being sued. rich-c: UFile is teh program, website I don't know Pamela: don't know that one. I prefer Quicktax Guy B. on NB: Netzero offered me Taxcut. rich-c: I think she tried that a year or two ago but found it klunky and inflexible Pamela: which reminds me, I really need to get my taxes done Pamela: I guess that will also be on the "to do " list for the weekend Guy B. on NB: Mine were done in March and the deadline was yesterday. Pamela: you're bragging Guy rich-c: yes, our deadline isnt till the end of the month Guy B. on NB: Got all the rebates last weekend. rich-c: she has filed your grandmother's, Pam Pamela: well that's a start Pamela: problem is Guy, W2 George: what is NB? Pamela: s in the States are due very early in January rich-c: she's working on them but some documentation was late rich-c: but mostly it has been problems with the UFile site Pamela: but in Canada, they don't have to have T4's out until the end of February. Pamela: or for that matter, any other documentation rich-c: NB is notebook, George Guy B. on NB: Yep rich-c: Guy is using my Saturday trick, using a notebook so he can surf and watch tv George: oh, i upgraded one today Pamela: and actually, last date to contribute to RSPs is March 1st, so those slips don't go out till the middle of March Pamela: Is that why you overdid it today George? rich-c: what was teh upgrade, George? Pamela: and Bob, how did Mandy's move go? George: yes but i did many other t5hings today too Pamela: such as? rich-c: dont confuse him, Pam, first let's hear about the upgrade Pamela: hmph Pamela: that got filtered : ) George: Rich, I got 64mb of NB ram from 4allmemory .com for $39.95 second day air free Guy B. on NB: Bob, where's Judy tonight? BobS: back.....Mandy's move went OK Guy B. on NB: Where is she now? Pamela: good to hear rich-c: don't know how memory prices run for notebooks, George, but that sounds not bad BobS: she is now on her own in an apt with Ryan BobS: got set up and got enought ot ge tby except for the clothes she left here so far Guy B. on NB: Good to hear Bob. Looks like things are turning around nicely. rich-c: what did they do with teh father? George: Toshiba and others wanted over $80.00 for same ram rich-c: oh yes, factory prices are always higher, way out of line rich-c: but then most buyers don't even know there are other sources BobS: here next to me hollerin about my stupidity on computers Pamela: Bob, can you put her on for a minute? I need a woman's input on something BobS: and cussin me out becaue I am too dumb to tell her how to find her file George: i did a search by part # rich-c: cute - I gather Google is pretty good at picking up that sort of thing BobS: she don't want o George: they got me thye rigt price rich-c: right - if I recall, 64 meg was all the additional memory the machine would take, right? Pamela: okay, then please pass on these questions: did she have or attend a bridal shower for Mandy? Pamela: if so, does she still have the invitations? I need wording Pamela: or if she can remember that far back, for Meeka's? George: 128mb and 32mb onboard for a total of 160mb George: but they discontinued the 128mb module

And my programming skill in Java is very bad Pamela: bet it won't be when you're done, Daniel! rich-c: no place where you can find a sample to copy? Pamela: is that for me or Daniel, Dad? George: i did a boo boo exploring a windowsxp cd rich-c: or is this a university assignment where you can't plagarize? rich-c: Daniel, Pam daniel b: the second thing Pamela: tx rich-c: guess you are going to be learning a lot about Java very quickly, then Judy: we are going to a bridal shower this week and the invitation starts out with please join us at a bridal shower daniel b: I use the Swing library for the graphic interface and it's working but I can't adapt my code to open more than one image.

Judy: Next line Place and last line Given by and RSVP Pamela: alright, got that - anything else? Judy: that is it rich-c: KISS, Pam Judy: keep it simple daniel b: The main problem for me is no information in french in Java web site and all the information i need is there. I need someone who already do this kind of program in Java to suggest me a solution. George: i think i need to go to bed i'm losing it rich-c: I don't know which of our people would know about Java Pamela: Oh I want to, but I want to personalize it a bit too, and there's more room on a standard 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper Judy: otherwise go to a card shop and check them out but all that we have gotten have been about the same rich-c: Sun doesn't offer its manuals in any languages other than English? Pamela: Go to bed before you pass out George - we'll pick on you if you snore Pamela: okay Judy - thank you. I will do that - good suggestion George: ok, nite nite Judy: have fun Pamela: nite, George Judy: nite George rich-c: nite George George: nite all daniel b: Order a manual in french and then find the proper information... the two months will be lost.

I'm co-hosting since the maid of honour is in Nova Scotia and won't be here till just before the wedding rich-c: have you done a Google search for manuals in French? George: oh, God I can't get it to go Pamela: My brilliant addition to the plan was that each guest should bring a single silk flower - we're going to create her rehearsal bouqet from them Judy: the only thing I don't like about them is the dumb games, I always bump at them Pamela: what kind of games? Judy: that is bomb Pamela: details - give me details Pamela: not the bombs, the games Judy: don't you play game at showers? George: someone please remove me Pamela: the only shower I have been to in the last five years was Katherines, and I threw that one. no games at it Pamela: okay, we'll try that George
Pamela requested to ban George
BobS confirmed ban

Judy: have a tray with all items on it and show for a minute then people have to try to remember what they were BobS: OK Daniel, but can you not have the page translated INTO French on the web itself????? daniel b: I don't feel good... i'm thinking I will not be able to do it. too much stress. Pamela: that's a good one rich-c: Daniel, try tecfa.unige.ch/moo Judy: or make divide in teams and give each team a roll of toilet paper and they pick one person to make a bride dress of the paper Pamela: I've heard of that one rich-c: Bob, the online translations are not good, very literal, word for word Pamela: or the variation where you try to cover as much as possible of one person in an allotted time BobS: and taht does not somtimes get the correct point across............ Judy: take a walnut and put little things in it and they have to try to guess what is in it . you wouldn Judy: t believe how many items will fit Pamela: such as?

Pamela: Unlike the last one I did, this one will be much larger and with a larger age spread Pamela: it's more difficult to keep a large group entertained, and those suggestions will help BobS: and you WILL BE an expert at this shower thing right?????? Judy: I couldn't tell you how many I have given and attended Pamela: problem is, most of my close friends and relatives are still single, or have been married since the beginning of time Judy: no, there are just more people, could make it easier Pamela: or, are in another part of the country Pamela: well, I'll have help but I'm in charge of invitations, the cake and the entertainment. Judy: so no showers lately Pamela: just the one in five years. I need more practice! Judy: sounds like most of it, what is left? BobS: showing up at your door, eh??????? Pamela: food, decorations, location Pamela: guest list Judy: ok, at least you don't have to have them all at your place and make all the food Pamela: specialty traditions Pamela: exactly. I did that last time - was feeding 15 but it felt like an army Pamela: I enlisted my mother in law for help with the food Pamela: she really came through for me daniel b: I copied the links Judy: good idea Pamela: best idea I'd had in months Judy: that is what my girls do, ask mom rich-c: OK Daniel, even if one has what you need, that should do it Pamela: that's usually my main source of advice, but it's been five times that long since my mom attended one of these things rich-c: I used Progams+Manuals+Java+French as my search terms Pamela: so, I turn to other Moms whenever possible Judy: I fit the bill BobS: ho, ho, ho......time to go..........and that means ???????
