Freddymaiden: I hope not... rich-c: I don't walk any more - I'm in line for a hip replacement this fall Freddymaiden: oic , it must hurt you now when you sit down? rich-c: but I do still plan to go to Adamcon though I will fly rather than drive :-(

Freddymaiden: correct well, Sylvie is back to work, hard task for her who would rather stay home and babysit... Freddymaiden: maybe later! rich-c: yes, we were lucky, when Pamela was born Frances could retire to fulltime motherhood, but that is rare these days rich-c: but then we were much older and better established than most first-time parents Freddymaiden: yes its tough, but her goal is to stay home when and if second one comes along...God willing! rich-c: well, don't push it - it will happen in due time Freddymaiden: good advice! rich-c: Fred, it's been a long time since we talked - did I tell you about the Hacker Helper books? rich-c: those are the ones by Mel Ostler, NOT the Hackers Guide Scott: Those are some good books Scott: Mel never got around to finishing off the series. Freddymaiden: Actually I dont recall, I have re-made my program in C language, studied alot since last chat... Scott: What a shame! rich-c: anyway - you know this Scott, I think - I managed to track down Mel this winter rich-c: and he gave me permission to make photocopies of all his books that I have Scott: Do you have a lot of copies of Mel's books? Scott: for sale rich-c: I have already done a set for james - he picked it up when he was in Toronto rich-c: I have none for sale - I have permission to photocopy, which i will do at cost (+ shipping) Scott: Perhaps there could be a project to get these online
moved to room Meeting Place Scott: They're really good Freddymaiden: interresting.

Scott: We still have to get the ADAM Survival Guide finished Scott: There's also the Digital Express newsletters rich-c: yes, it would be so useful to get the key parts of that on line Scott: The Hacker's Helpers james: hhjhhu7mnmn7 h . n George: i'm having network woes Scott: etc. rich-c: see your helper is still with you, james james: nnmhmn numnwZ james: HYUJJJ rich-c: you're on a network, George? james: yes, he' sahn a jbig hel;p james: gg mjn mm james: hm6 ku7iy7u7n George: i'm using a linksys dsl router james: sec George: BEFSR 41 ver2 rich-c: you mean you're having problems getting on to AOL with it? james: n 7 u787 hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh james: anyone here watch that show "undergrads"? Freddymaiden: nope George: and quazi XP rich-c: I dont watch tv james: normally, i don't either. i've been downloading stuff from a friend in ottawa rich-c: if you're downloading tv shows, bandwidth must be getting awfully cheap in Nippon james: anyway, i wouldn't have mentioned it except that they mention a coleco adam james: no, i'm just very, very, very patient rich-c: they mention an Adam? Dynamite! What's the context? james: not a favourable context, unfortunately rich-c: Oh. Like? james: these two hacker types are exchanging insults and one says to the other "well you're a coleco adam" this was in retort to being called "a 1986 brother model word processor" Freddymaiden: so does that mean he is fun and intertaining? james: you'll be pleased to hear the c vic-20 ranked lower on the insult list rich-c: interesting that they figured anyone in teh audience would recognize what they wre talking about james: well the show is directed towards the post-graduate/late 20's early 30's geek crowd Freddymaiden: lol rich-c: yes, but they'd have been early teens in teh Adam's heyday james: of which i'm a card carrying member :P james: well i was about 10 when i got mine Freddymaiden: lol Freddymaiden: I hear ya! rich-c: right, I keep forgetting the age spread in the Adam community james: i met ron through aufg in ottawa when he took over it from a guy not much older than myself named lou hubert rich-c: all the first time parents - you, Dale, Freddy; Scott isn't there yet james: ron was much younger then ;-) you think his ears are burning over there in b.c. yet? james: oh yeah! case walked this week rich-c: could well be - he'll likely be on later tonight rich-c: havent heard from Dale for months - no idea what he's doing james: i found dale's icq number. i'm tempted to send him a message through that just to see if he's still breathing rich-c: I think it would be an excellent idea - tell him the world wonders james: will do rich-c: we're still missing all teh Slopsemas and Guy - wonder where they are tonight? Freddymaiden: its been great to exchange a few words tonight....gotta get going, early rise as usual...Good night all rich-c: bonsoir, Freddy - come back soon! james: bye freddy Freddymaiden: K, take care!!
Freddymaiden left chat session rich-c: so Scott, are you going to be making it to Adamcon? Scott: I may. When is it again? rich-c: August 7 - 10 on Vancouver Island Scott: Has someone stepped forward to host ADAMCon 16? rich-c: WestJet may or may not have a flight in and out from Calgary that's suitable; getting from Denver to Calgary is easy rich-c: no, there has been no discussion about that that I know of Scott: I'll have to see how much tickets are james: i'd host it but given my location, i think i'd be the only delegate rich-c: I suggest first you look and see if WestJet has a suitable flight; they do not fly to Comox every day Scott: I'd like to see the University of Waterloo. That's nearby, right? rich-c: but Calgary is their hub and I am sure there are endless flights Calgary/Denver rich-c: the option would be anyone to Vancouver then Pacific Coastal Airways to Comox rich-c: well, if you define 4200 miles apart as nearby, yes james: lol rich-c: Waterloo is under an hour's drive west of Toronto james: like the german tourists i encountered in ottawa who wanted to rent a car to make a day trip to vancouver George: there was a Philly ADAM network but i missed it rich-c: yes, that was Rich Cossaboon and his Delaware Valley group, George james: someone wants some milk. brb. George: oh, well. born too late rich-c: Vancouver Island has teh University of Victoria and Royal Roads; the University of B.C. and Simon Fraser U. are in Vancouver rich-c: heavens, where has everybody gone? Scott: I'm here, but doing other things too rich-c: maybe you should look at the westjet.com website for Calgery/ Comox schedules George: i'm in never never zone rich-c: the meds are getting to you, are they? George: they have been rich-c: yes, I took a Tylenol 2 at bedtime Monday night and man, did that zonk me out! George: i use #5

changed username to Guy B. Guy B.: Greetings!!!! rich-c: hello Guy, glad you made it Guy B.: Just came back from taking Jeanene out for her birthday. It was yesterday, but she came back today from southern IL. George: they didn't want to keep me on percocet rich-c: in Canada Tylenol 1 is OTC, Ty 2 has coedine so is OTC - pharmacist advice, and T3 is restricted, prescription only Guy B.: Got my new 40GB hard drive in the Athlon. rich-c: hey, terrif, Guy - Jeanene and Athlon doing well, a good day George: Hi Guy rich-c: no, George, percocet is high-octane stuff - makes your eyeballs spin :-) Scott: Well guys, I gotta go, but I will see you here next week rich-c: and how long will it take you to fill 40 gigs, Guy? Scott: Bye! Guy B.: The only problem is with Virucide 2001. I'm getting an error message when the AV-Check gets loaded. Probably a compatibity problem with the larger hard drive. I wrote down the error message for Broderbund to check it out. Doesn't affect the virus scanner itself. Loads normally. rich-c: bye Scott
Scott left chat session Guy B.: Right now, I have 24GB free with 12GB transfered from the old drive. George: 40 gig can be filled in 24 hours with XP Guy B.: I have a few new games that I have to install and that's why I got a larger hard drive. And I got $10 more off due to a price match from Best Buy. rich-c: well, I would say that would depend on the bandwidth you have available for downloads rich-c: that's assuming there's 40 gig worth of stuff on the web worth downloading Guy B.: That is you are downloading a lot of MP3's??? George: just a few rich-c: yes, George is teh demon MP3 downloader of all time, I gather james: i've been managing to fill my 60gb drive at 64k isdn speeds. don't know what i'd do if i had a fast connection :P George: no just 35 over all George: 2 mpg music videos rich-c: I have less than 10 gig filled and that includes a backup image of C:\ and Frances' stuff Guy B.: Now that I got the Athlon upgraded. I can go on to some other projects that I need to do next. I finally decided, I'll come to the con this year. Going to send Bob my deposit next weekend. james: downloading full length feature films is a great way to fill it up rich-c: good show, Guy, your presence is very important to us George: i got a shutdown alert from aol rich-c: sooner you can get it in teh better because Bob needs to get it to Ron quickly rich-c: oh, why are they cutting you off, George? Guy B.: And I'm going to apply for a passport. My last one expired back in 1987 and they said I'll have to apply for a new one. I think this will make it easier to get in and out of Canada and US much easier. I do plan to put down what I can now with the rest in July. George: area upgrades 0n 5/29/03 rich-c: I would forget about teh passport - Canada is not in the state of panic the US is Guy B.: Get rid of AOL George. james: yeah, that's what TimeWarner did, isn't it? :P rich-c: and the word is if you have proof of US citizenship it is no hassle to get back in Guy B.: When the mighty Mitchell comes on later hopefully. I'll volunteer for another session on AdamEm utilities setup with Windows. George: they need to bust up time warner rich-c: that's tomorrow then, George rich-c: AOL - upgrades -that means they've found a new way to increasee their price, right? George: yes the gave me an email with an alert sound rich-c: good, we can certainly use that Guy B.: That's why I think its a good idea to get a passport and who knows if we go back in Toronto for a future con. rich-c: I still can't figure out how to make a disc image and get it into DOS

Plan to revisit dcopy32 setup and anything else I may have up my sleeve. rich-c: been telling Guy to get his money in quick, while it still has some value Ron: If you could get a phone number James, I'd like to give him a voice call james: ron, if people are interested, i can do a LOGO session on tape Ron: now thats traffic routing eh? Comox/Japan/Toronto Ron: great James.... that would be of much interest. By the way.... I've got the McADAM docs copied for you, and the disk duplicated..

Pamela: or check under J. Arnott (Jillian didn't take Dale's name) George: i am using narrator it is reading the screen Ron: ok gotcha. Will try that Pam thanks Pamela: 905 would be the right area code for Neil - doesn't he live in Brooklin? Ron: as I recall, yes Pamela: as far as I know Ron, that's the number they gave me last year rich-c: yes, I saw that program I think on a website recently, George - it's freeware, isn't it? Pamela: are you having trouble finding them? George: it's a part of XP rich-c: does the 905 area code extend as far north-east a Broolin? it's mostly to our southwest Ron: was just wondering if Jillian and he intended on coming to the 'con Pamela: ah Ron: and if so whether he'd consider a session rich-c: oh, there's also a freeware add-on for the older Windows versions that does that Ron: haven't seen or heard from either of them since the dates were announced George: for accessibility

Daniel B: In Japan! yes! Daniel B: james Pamela: well Mom certainly is James rich-c: oh, there was an earthquake in Japan a couple of days ago, but the other end from James james: hi dan George: oh, it's just traffic Daniel B: hi james! how are you? james: lol. saying "there was an earthquake in japan a couple of days ago" is like saying "there was a political scandal a couple of days ago" james: daddy is tired George: smash em up derby james: how are you dan? Pamela: Ron, the more I think about it, the more I think the address may be firstname.lastname@example.org Ron: You will have at least two devoted followers James: Frances Clee and me Ron: That's enough for a quorum james: works for me then Daniel B: I'm fine! thanks for asking! Ron: let the rest of 'em go hang james: just maybe if i get my butt in gear, i can get to the point where i'm inserting ml code into my logo progs. then the fun begins Ron: I'm sure most others will be interested too rich-c: right - schedule teh session against the CFL game or a race and I'll go watch that Ron: boy! He sure declares his vote fast doesn't he!! Pamela: Dad, have you ever considered getting help for your race addiction? james: lol rich-c: yes, it's called satellite tv and is very helpful ;-) Ron: I am powerless over computers, and my life is unmanageable Pamela: tee hee hee james: heh heh. i'm just glad my friend put up an ftp server for me to get stuff from. was going insane rich-c: funny you should say ... Pamela: Have you heard of a program on TLC called Junkyard Wars? George: get therapy Ron: Just threw out 4 macintoshes..... james: ok ron, speaking for yourself, any particular aspect of logo you'd like to see explored? Ron: acquired another.... net improvement - not much james: whoa! ron?! 4? you running a high fever there? Pamela: we need one of Dr. D's lovely equations here rich-c: well, they were all powered by 68000 chips... Ron: One area of interest James is the use of LOGO pics in Powerpaint. There are ways of doing that which I never did grasp Ron: so that's one Guy B.: 4 Macs? Are they older ones? Pamela: (Guy's ears prick up) james: sec. i don't even have the powerpaint software Ron: another would be an explananation of the garbage pickup that LOGO does, and how it organizes memory into nodes Ron: we will fix that James rich-c: I suspect Frances would be curious about that - the Amiga version does that too Guy B.: I'm might get rid of one the PC's here myself. Most likely the P75. Might sell it cheap. rich-c: a P75? you can't sell those; you have to pay to have them taken away Ron: yeah... I know that there are limitations on the size of a LOGO program, and that the recycle command does something to make it better Ron: at least temporarily james: hmm.. i don't know much about that. i mean i've read what's in the logo reference manual but that's about it Pamela: my eyes must be deceiving me - I thought i just saw the words "get rid of" in front of the word computer james: lol. it may be a hallucination pam :P Pamela: Group hallucinations? Guy B.: Dell I think might be able to haul it away. I have to check it out. Found it from an article from Maximum PC. Ron: isn't imagination wonderful Pam? rich-c: I know - around here that is a deep, dark heresy Pamela: quite George: network it Ron: I actually re-arranged the snake-pit a couple of weeks ago. Could almost see the floor james: yeah, something i want to explore too, once i get a handle on using ml code Ron: but now..... Ron: It's gone again rich-c: use it as a server under AdamServe Guy B.: Or I might see if my mom would be interested in it, but she would need a BIG monitor so she can at least see the screen. Pamela: I thought the floor was just a rumour, James james: is expanding the size of logo programs (a problem i ran into frequently) Pamela: sorry, Ron George: i need a big one too Ron: Lost am I in a sea of computers james: in the height of my "logo" days, when i was about 14.. i guess, i reached a point where i was swapping procedures in and out of memory from tape Ron: Well, let's put it this way James, I haven't done a heck of a lot of LOGO programming - for one who at one time actually wrote a series of articles on it -- but james: got about halfway through making a very nice drawing program but got tired of the tape drive spinning and gave up Ron: It seems to me that one program tied the ADAM up pretty good, and it was not a big program. Details have goine, but I can remember thinking....well there Pamela: obviously pre-DD Ron: is a price to pa Ron: be paid for all this functionality Guy B.: He needs Adamserve or at least the Adam Emulator Daniel B: I have to quit now. I wanted to say hello to everybody and I hope I will be online more earlier next week. rich-c: Frances says she has a drawing program for SmartLogo, james Pamela: nice to see you anyway Daniel Pamela: g'nite Daniel B: bonne nuit! Guy B.: Bye Daniel, good that dropped in tonight. rich-c: OK Daniel, take care and see you Ron: Nite Daniel Pamela: ce soir, je ne parle pas le francais james: ron, as an experiment, i tried to see if logo can natively access a 64k expander. it can't Daniel B: moi non plus, je ne parle pas franšais Daniel B: hehe! Daniel B: good night! Pamela: tee hee james: lol rich-c: there is a program that lets SmartLogo use a 64K expander Ron: right..... although at one time, I bought a disk from Walters Brothers that professed to provide access to a mem expander of whatever size rich-c: it was written I think by one of the Walters twins Ron: never did get anything out of that james: hmm Guy B.: Smartdsk james: i'd be interested in that Ron: yeah james: though i bet i could live with swapping from a floppy drive Pamela: d'you still have it Ron? Ron: yes, I believe Ron: would have to find it james: anyway, you can load logo, type.. sec.. what was that command.. Ron: here in the snake pit, that can be a lengthy exercise james: pr nodes or something like that Pamela: maybe you should let the whizkids have a go at it in august, see if they can make it work Guy B.: That's what Jim Walters brought out. I have it. He also put out Adam's Desktop that has this system on it. Lets you transfer your files to any size memory expander. james: shut down, insert the mem expander and reload, and you'll get the exact same result rich-c: it sets up teh expander as a memdisc with its own drive number, Frances says Ron: Tis my intention to have on hand at the Con a table of 5-1/4's contain everything I own of ADAM George: memmaker? Pamela: HI, mom james: hmm.. maybe that's worth looking into Ron: look at, it, find it, it's yours rich-c: the weasel is in that "find it" james: lol Ron: violation of cross border trade.... wrongful transmission of encripted data Ron: :) Ron: hey... I'm honest Pamela: Headline: "X-ray machine wipes A.D.A.M. disk - no film at 11:00 : (" Ron: can see the headline now. "Rash of unreadable disks being exported from BC" Ron: Nobody can read them except those "iin the know" james: made unreadable by the very fact they're 5.25" james: :P Ron: Al-Quaida links suspected rich-c: strange and exotic format Ron: :) Pamela: no, no, no - do not format! George: it's hard putting mp3's on those DATA PACKS Pamela: lol rich-c: btw Ron, do you think Guy would gain any beenefit from having a passport for the trip? Guy B.: Might not even fit on a data pack. james: you'd need about 10 of them Ron: anyway.... there are a couple of collections that should have gone with previous ADAMs won as prizes james: maybe 20 Ron: never did leave here Ron: Rich, Guy - re the passport question - I have always made it from here with my birth certificate and photo id....(my drivers licence) Pamela: news flash: Ron is still trying (desperately) to find the floor of the Snake Pit - by offloading stuff on his friends Ron: but each yea r they tighten things up Guy B.: What do you suggest? Ron: right on Pamela rich-c: the word here is US citizens need a driver's licence - period Guy B.: That I have. Ron: to be on the safe side, the passport would remove any doubt George: i don't rich-c: then forget anything else, unless you can carry your birth certificate conveniently Ron: but I'd suggest you check with customs. They'll surely tell you how anal they're being George: travel to Canada banned james: yeah, and pardon my cynicism, if you look the least bit arab, you'll have a hard time Guy B.: I bought my birth certicate when I came into Toronto 3 years ago and I didn't have any problem. rich-c: well with teh SARS scare and all, any would-be visitor is being treated very gently here at the moment Pamela: Guy, check the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency website - ccra.gc.ca, I believe - that should tell you George: and mad cow Ron: I know.... Murphy's law of travel Guy B.: I'll look into it. Thanks Pam. james: i don't wanna work today. wish i could call in sick Pamela: no prob rich-c: naw, seems we've already run out of mad cows, George - only ever could find one Pamela: somehow I don't think the boss would allow it James Ron: So - James - phone yourself, and say, "the thought of coming to work makes you sick" Guy B.: Well, I have a short week due to the Memorial Day holiday. james: i tried, but i keep getting a busy signal rich-c: and don't think you don't enjoy it, right?
