I check my emails! rich-c: Pamela won't be on tonight so I had to fill in for her, Guy ;-) james: ca va? Daniel Bienvenu: moi ça va! rich-c: what is the obstacle, Guy? james: je travaille maintenant sur les caracteres hiragana. tu les a vu? rich-c: you and Daniel been comparing notes on Adam graphics separately, james?

changed username to BobS BobS: howdy mates james: actually, we've been working together extensively over the last couple weeks rich-c: hello Bob, looks like we're getting a good crowd early james: and i've been brushing up on my french BobS: Guy, got your check THAKNS rich-c: that is just terrific, james BobS: thas good james: i have a good teacher ;-) rich-c: and it's so encouraging that teh foundation of the collaboration comes from these chats james: i'm making a japanese font and dan is helping me write routines to display it Guy B.: Tell you what happen. I found a good flight schedule thru Yahoo Travel. I would Chicago at 8:36 AM on August 7th, I would connect in Vancouver wait 4 hours for the flight with Pacific Coastal for a 3:00 PM flight. Going back would be Ok. Then they said they couldn't electronic ticket me. Jeanene helped me call them. Then we thought we got it straightened out where they would issue 2 tickets for each airline. Now they can't do it. I cancelled the reservations and I'm going to consult a travel agent. Guy B.: Bob, I might have to cancel. I'll let you know. I can't even get a flight. Yahoo Travel screwed me up. rich-c: I suspect, Guy, that if you hit up the airline directly they'll be able to set things up james: @guy, so yahoo travel is as reliable as its chat BobS: YES cll direct rich-c: cost is an issue but maybe if you show some awareness of teh net prices? Daniel Bienvenu: Hello James, je les regardes en ce moment... j'étais parti toute la journée. Guy B.: I think it would be too much of hassle on it. So, Jeanene has a long time friend who is in the travel business. rich-c: yes, a travel agent can likely cope, and there are other websites besides yahoo james: moi aussi :D james: j'etais endormi Guy B.: I tried Expedia. Way too high. rich-c: Try Orbitz, see if Excite travel can help, or maybe thetrip,com, Guy Guy B.: Orbitz I tried. No dice. rich-c: even if you don't book they can give you flights and numbers rich-c: consider also another routing, say via Calgary if WestJet can offer a usable schedule Daniel Bienvenu: Printing japanese caracters with a coleco... it's very special. I didn't have a clue when I started programming ColecoVision about something like this. rich-c: what are you doing, Daniel. programming them as sprites? james: hopefully i can look at your code soon dan and write my ime function Daniel Bienvenu: I programmed a little something... very usefull for James. rich-c: how many harigana characters are there, james? Daniel Bienvenu: it's a graphic routine to print on screen a characters where he wants in the X coordinate james: i'm making standard characters in the 8x8 character set and dan has written a routine to print graphically james: some characters are half-width so the standard print function wasn't enough Guy B.: Scott might be able to finish his project he's working on. I gave him the Fontpower fonts and Spritepower too. rich-c: yes, I can see where that would complicate matters Daniel Bienvenu: my routine can be used for normal font too. like 'l' is take less space than 'W'
moved to room Meeting Place rich-c: that's only if you are using a proportional spacing font, like Arial.
changed username to Judy Judy: hello everyone Daniel Bienvenu: yes, and it's exactly the problem here rich-c: If you use a fixed font like Courier, the different letter widths don't matter rich-c: welcome, Judy Daniel Bienvenu: Hello Judy Guy B.: HI Judy. My flight reservations I made with Yahoo Travel were cancelled. They screwed me up. Daniel Bienvenu: a fixed font like Courrier is perfect for a normal text screen... but the japanese characters... Daniel Bienvenu: it's another story Judy: that's not cool, did you get new ones? james: it will work for fixed fonts too

Daniel Bienvenu: @james: What is the char#1A? it's like a a simple dot. rich-c: mental note: Yahoo = massive incompetence rich-c: james, how many characters are there in the set? Daniel Bienvenu: 12*8+3 Judy: now what are you going to do about it? james: 1a? sec rich-c: that's a few too many for a screen that will support 40 sprties max, then Daniel Bienvenu: @rich: there are 12*x+3 japanses characters in the set James do. Guy B.: Jeanene knows someone who is a travel agent and she will see about helping out. Otherwise, if I cannot get a flight, I'll have to cancel going to con this year. james: @dan, 1a isn't my character. i didn't even notice it until now Daniel Bienvenu: @james, ok! I erase it BobS: you HAVE to come Guy ....after all this and now a simple ticket???????

Guy B.: Any suggestions, I would appreciate it. FredK: Great stuff! rich-c: try telling your troubles to Ron - he can be savvy about such things james: brb Guy B.: He better come on soon. I hate to do this to him. rich-c: having driven to the vast majority of 'cons, I don't know much about flying rich-c: don't be defeatist, Guy, or even discouraged Guy B.: I never knew this would be such a hassle. rich-c: the world's full of them, Guy; just don't let them get to you Guy B.: Tell me. I go through this at work everyday. rich-c: we all have our problems, Guy, just tackle them and solve them rich-c: last night the bathroom floor was all wet - we traced it to a leak in the cieling rich-c: I think we got teh storms last night you had the night before - wild and wet BobS: but ya go0t a roof leak eh????

Guy B.: Ron, do you know if Pacific Coastal flys from Seattle? Ronald: looking..... james: back Ronald: I know there is a newly implemented service from Seattle to Campbell River which is about 45 min north of us. Ronald: Checking for detail now..... I know I have it here somewhere BobS: ahso, dat might yust work Ronald: we can come get ya.... rich-c: WestJet doesnt fly any days useful to Guy, do they? rich-c: if they did he could look for a flight through Calgary rich-c: for that matter, Ron, can you arrange a fetch to/from Vicroia? Ronald: yes, but I'd have to know about that in advance. Would entail 6 hours' driving, and if someone is coming on Thursday, that might be difficult. I don't mind doing it, but, we'd have to make some plans to cover here too Daniel Bienvenu: I finish the spaces table for the kana font. james: just a few more characters to go Daniel Bienvenu: I'm testing it BobS: what is comox airport code????????

Your travel agent ought to be able to work that out. Meeka: how is everyone tonight?

Meeka: ya, thats a great price Guy B.: I'll see what Jeanene's friend will do for me. james: someone's sleepy. brb Guy B.: Well, looks like I might be getting rid of another computer. Ronald: Was hoping you would tell me Judy, but if you'd like to carry on from where you were last year on ADAMBOMB, that Ronald: would be fine Ronald: And what about Bob? Guy B.: I fixed the beeping problem on the P133. A keyboard change did the trick. Meeka: lol, I havent even played it since last year Judy: ok, we could work out something, right, Meeka Ronald: right Meeka, I hear ya. Maybe we better leave that one BobS: thought we were trying to muddle thru the disk changes in ADAMEM Meeka: ya, we can try anyway Judy: me either, but we can get back in it rich-c: that's fine, Guy, but what's a P133 worth these days anyway? can you even give it away? Ronald: ok.. Bob, you're right. Gotta start writing things down Guy B.: You two should do a session on designing your own Adambomb layouts. Ronald: was at a conference this morning on dementia...... kinda fit rich-c: don't forget the Adam chat on Sunday night, Ron james: lol Guy B.: Not much. I have a P100 that I might donate. Judy: why, Ron? Ronald: yup Rich.... hotel has informed me they will have a broadband hookup to the meeting room so that's good Guy B.: Now what about the ones with dialups? Ronald: I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter. go into a room and wonder what I'm here after rich-c: OK Ron, make sure you tell the whole list when to come on - including zone-appropriate time Daniel Bienvenu: @james: I think the table is working now Judy: I have been doing that for years, Ron BobS: can relate to that Ronald: but no, it's a club I'm a member of.... retired professionals and business people. Our guest speaker this morning spoke on the topic of seniors and dementia. BobS: HEY you got Netzero. log in upthere Ronald???????

Ronald: We'll use whatever the hotel has to offer, and I have a compuserve account still which does have local dialup rich-c: I think MaGlobe has prepaid in some Canadian cities but not out there Ronald: Going to try arrange a couple of temp accounts with our local provider Guy B.: Abby saw a dog and it's not the black and white she saw. Guy B.: Drove me nuts. Ronald: most likely closest you'll get to here with the US National companies would be Victoria or Vancouver BobS: think AOL or Sprint has prepaids in Comox??????? Ronald: and they're both long distance from here Ronald: Yes, AOL has local dialup here rich-c: don't AOL or Compuserve have Comox numbers, Ron? Guy B.: Ron, you mentioned broadband, will the rooms have that? I do have a PC Ethernet card. Ronald: Wouldn't do business with Sprint if they were the last provider on the face of the earth BobS: but do they also have prepaid cards???? BobS: only if prepaid is cheap Ronald: never heard of that Bob rich-c: I think Sprint have prepaid cards but no local connection Judy: sounds like there was trouble with them BobS: ok........can you do long distance with AT&T ?????? Guy B.: Netzero will allow you to Broadband, DSL. Ronald: Oh....just a little arguement about marketing tactics Judy: and who won? Ronald: However, if we have the hotel BobS: well taht sounds like a problem for the 'big mac attack' crowd at ADAMCON to tackle one night......getting everyone on line Ronald: if we have the hotel's broadband into the meeting room, I'm going to bring in my ethernet hub. That will connect 8 Guy B.: If we know if the rooms have broadband. We can use Netzero thru it. BobS: bradband gets us what ???????? james: dan, 6 characters to go BobS: broadband Ronald: the rooms may or may not have broadband. They've just got this up and running Ronald: yes Guy B.: Some of the hotels have broadband modems in their rooms. Daniel Bienvenu: @all right Daniel Bienvenu: err... Judy: what will that get you? Daniel Bienvenu: @james: all right! Daniel Bienvenu: I typed too fast Guy B.: That would help. I'll bring my cable and PC Ethernet card then as well as the PC card modem. Ronald: good plan Guy Ronald: Last year's setup was the best BobS: course, it was in my hometown Guy B.: I think you guys will like the notebook I have. Only thing is I can't use the floppy drive.

Daniel Bienvenu: @james: a lot of new characters Ronald: right Rich. Or my Valleylinks crowd has the expertise Ronald: will put it on the to-do list james: yes. so that's the complete kana set, hiragana & katakana rich-c: this is Pamela's haircut night, Judy james: i'll do the roman to japanese character code conversion tonight if i'm not dead rich-c: her cutter only works a couple of nights, one being Wednesday Judy: she needs to get a different night for that!!! james: anyway, i have to go get ready for my other job since apparently i don't work enough here. will talk you all later. rich-c: she was over here with Russell for a belated birthday dinner last night rich-c: night james, see you next week BobS: nite james FredK: Bye James james: bye everyone. DougS: night james Guy B.: Bye James Meeka: night Ronald: Night James rich-c: got caught by teh shower when teh rain came through the roof Judy: you leaving already, Meeka?

james left chat session Meeka: no, just sayin night to james :) rich-c: at this point patching will do teh job - there is only one area that's bad Judy: ok, sorry about that Meeka: np rich-c: seems that the rain hitting our tv antenna becomes acidified and over the years eats the shingles below rich-c: the roofer is teh guy who did the current installation, he's pretty good BobS: ok rich-c: likely have him do the eavestroughs while he's here, since they need replacement Judy: Mandy came over with Ryan tonight and Ryan had his bike helmet on, what a hoot rich-c: how are they getting on, Judy? we all fret rich-c: Ron, going back to Guy's problems - would a flight to YVR then renting a car be economic for him? Judy: they are doing good, he went for another evaluation at MaryFreeBed hospital this week, will not have to go back they think he is just fine rich-c: or better still, a flight to Victoria? rich-c: that is such a relief, Judy Judy: it was an evaluation on the head injury Guy B.: Don't mind driving. Depends how long it would take. Ronald: It's about 6 or one and half a dozen of the other. Flight from Vancouver would be about $200 CDN, Car rental would no doubt work out to more than that. Ronald: Still think Fly from Seattle/YVR/Comox Meeka: thats good mom Judy: yes it was and next week Alfred will go off to jail rich-c: renting in Victoria would save the ferry fare BobS: SO then find the boy a good priced flight Ronald: I do know that the flight from Seattle to Campbell River was about $525 CDN one way Judy: it is about time for that Ronald: they just started it, so it's pricy rich-c: also might open a Chicago-Calgary-Victoria option - think Westjet flies to Victoria Ronald: yeah Bob Guy B.: Which city is Comox closer to?

BobS: hi Scott Judy: got the conformation on sentencing today, so we know that it is going to happen Scott: Wow! Now that's what you call a full house!!! rich-c: well, as long as Guy asks the right questions Ronald: Comox is 3 hours drive from Victoria Guy, and a 2 hour ferry ride and 2 hour drive from Vancouver Ronald: Hi Meeka: cool Ronald: Scott rich-c: agent look for the obvious, they aren't always au fait with the alternatives Scott: Yes, Guy and thank you. I can extract the font sets from the FontPOWER image Guy B.: So Vancouver would be closer then. Guy B.: Great Scott. Ronald: yes...... marginally Scott: Actually, I need to write some code to read the SmartBASIC directory structure. rich-c: not in time, questionable in cost, Guy Scott: But I looked at it in a hex editor and everything that I need is there rich-c: but the ferry ride to the island can be very spectacular Guy B.: Let me check and see. Be right back. Ronald: exactly Rich. The BC Ferries from Vancouver to Nanaimo are also cheaper by about $25. than those from Seattle or Port Angeles to Victoria Scott: How's development going, Daniel rich-c: we need to warn Guy though that the car rental premium in Vancouver for airport pickup is ferocious rich-c: also navigating from YVR to either ferry dock is absolutely no joy whatsoever Daniel Bienvenu: @scott: the development to help james? it's going good. Ronald: cheaper to fly than rent a car, I think rich-c: and then there's no guarantee the ferry will have space for him Scott: How's Gamepack 2 development Ronald: once he gets here, transportation will not be a problem Daniel Bienvenu: @scott: the develpment for my projects? it's always the same BobS: get reservations onf the ferry....only $15 CA BobS: not stupid this time.........last time got screwed up both ways and had to wait Daniel Bienvenu: gamepack 2? stoped ... until I found ideas: I need games to fill the rom. Ronald: that's true Bob. lineups in the summer can mean a 1 or 2 sailing wait (sometimes more) Ronald: The joys of living on an Island BobS: nice island though.......... Ronald: doesn't bother me, I never leave it Ronald: Although.....have to go to Vancouver this weekend Judy: can't get any Cananian money here, they were going to charge us $11 to have it sent here BobS: how bad are they going to rip us to exchange at the boreder?????? Scott: Each game has to fit into about 2K, right? Ronald: you might be better to bring the US dollars north Judy. Daniel Bienvenu: approx 2K, yes Judy: the next bank I checked with said to get the money at the border Ronald: we take 'em up here, although we probably don't pay for 'em what they're worth Daniel Bienvenu: be right back rich-c: change them at a bank in Canada once you cross the border BobS: pacino/latte guy on the waterefront does NOT convert at all Ronald: but you'll have no problem exchanging funds up here Guy B.: Thrifty would be the cheapest at $37.77 a day unlimited mileage. That would probably run over $200 with taxes I guess. rich-c: if the bank isn't cooperative there are exchanges in large cities that give better rates Judy: will have to do that, we usually like to come prepaired rich-c: have3 you looked at Discount, Guy? Before my leg acted up they had teh best rate when I looked Scott: What about a game of Hangman? Ronald: last rate I saw up here was at Tim Hortons.... 40 cents on the dollar....ie $1. CDN is 1.40 US Ronald: but that was a while ago BobS: IF you rent Guy,l we can meet you at ferry N of Victoria and go to Comox with you ANd then leave Monday and go to mainland with you Ronald: or is that the other way around? BobS: in separate but equal cars you understanfd Ronald: geez.... I knew it.....dementia rich-c: right now our dollar is at about 72.5 cents U.S. - reciprocal would be I guess about 1.36 Guy B.: That I know. Let me see what Jeanene's friend can do first. Ronald: that's better Rich
DougS left chat session rich-c: well, our dollar is bouncing around like a yo-yo BobS: YIPPEE, ride 'em cowboy rich-c: have to see what Greenspan does next week - he could send us over 75 cents Ronald: make sure you get picked up from wherever you can get to on this island Ronald: Campbell River, Nanaimo, Victoria, Judy: at the bank here they would give me 190 CA for 160 US and then charge $11 on top of it Ronald: if'n you decide not to rent wheels rich-c: remember Bob, every increase in our dollar means you get a lesser exchange rate on yours BobS: got reservations on Monday from Duke Point into Twassan rich-c: were they wearing a mask and waving a gun, Judy? BobS: yea, but the ban is ripping us a new backside entry port here Ronald: good move Bob. That way, you don't have to drive thru Vancouver Judy: isn' t that awful?
