Pam at home: Nice to meet you Jen - that's a lot easier to type
tdbear: All the farm trucks you see driving around are all green in the front.

tdbear changed username to Jen
Dr.D.-AC15: What stuff did you clean today, Christina?
BobS-AC15: 6000+ feet Richard
zonker: no 6m ft
Dr.D.-AC15: There was a patch at the very top, about 10 x 20 feet.
Dr.D.-AC15: About 6 inches deep.
rich-c: OK, then it would have elevations high enough to keep smow in August
Dr.D.-AC15: Cold and wet and very good.
zonker: fortunately it wasnt yellow
BobS-AC15: and Ron would NOT take us to the HIGH mountain............
Guy B.: Ok, Smartwriter is a barebones type of word processor. Doesn't have all the bells and whistles of Word. No spell check, print preview. Just a plain word processor.
(BobS-AC15 groans loudly)
Dr.D.-AC15: Not until Zonker got there, anyway.
Judy: it was high enough for me
(Someone throws a brick at BobS-AC15)
rich-c: yes when we were in Seattle we visited Mt. Ranier and found snow
Pam at home: says she of the Michigan flats : )
Dr.D.-AC15: We took a chair lift up the mountain, Christina. It was fun and scary.

rich-c: Dale - are you really ewith us?
Dr.D.-AC15: Lazy?
Meeka: brb
Christina: yeas, Elanor is just like a bump on the log, she just sits there and annoys you
Christina: Bye everyone

Coleco Kid: Daniel you gone?
Daniel Bienvenu: no...
Coleco Kid: how long u been programming Coleco games?
Daniel Bienvenu: how long? I started in feb 1999.
Coleco Kid: Im dying to understand the whole thing......I guess i can dream
Daniel Bienvenu: you didn't be able to do s little something?
Coleco Kid: When is that guy comeing out with the donkey kong release?
Coleco Kid: No too much to take in Bro.....
Coleco Kid: Was good with the SmartBASIC thing but after that the Machine language killed me
Daniel Bienvenu: you didn'T try programming in C like me?
Coleco Kid: My C hasnt been good since College, like 6 years ago....
Coleco Kid: I have sooo many ideas but no foundation!
Daniel Bienvenu: did you see my coleco programming documentation?
Coleco Kid: I know every coleco game pixel for pixel....but no push?
Coleco Kid: yes....but like I said my C is ssoooooo rusty
Coleco Kid: I would love to hang out with you for like 3 weeks and learn it all!!!!!!!!!
Daniel Bienvenu: You must start learning C if you don't like using ASM because they are the only two ways to do ColecoVision games
Daniel Bienvenu: teaching C language is not my force
Coleco Kid: How did original Coleco programmers do there code? ASM?
Daniel Bienvenu: mostly ASM, yes. A rumor said that a PASCAL compiler existed but it's only a rumor
Coleco Kid: Do you think they really used that PNBL vart to produce screens?
Daniel Bienvenu: This is the kind of question someelse here may answer
Daniel Bienvenu: personnaly, I think each compagny used his "toolkit"
Coleco Kid: Why dont you guys try to produce the unreleased games from catalog seeing as you have the skillz to do so...people would go crazy for em...
Daniel Bienvenu: Like Spectar, RipeCord?
Coleco Kid: Tunnels and Trolls....Mr Turtle...etc..
Coleco Kid: YES!
Coleco Kid: Instead of games that we have all seen already....
Coleco Kid: whos that cat with the space invader releae?
Daniel Bienvenu: The problem is... we have absolutly no clue if any proto exist and what the game supposed to be. I see some arcade version of Exidy's games but it's hard to see what it can be done for the colecovision.
Daniel Bienvenu: s'cuse my english but.. you mean "who is doing Space Invaders Collection"?
Coleco Kid: Thats the beauty!!!! Just go by the screens and create the rest by your self.... As long as the screens resemble what was in the catalog....Have you seen the new ADVENTURE for Atari 5200?
Daniel Bienvenu: pardon me but his name is : Eduardo Mello.
Coleco Kid: Yes
Daniel Bienvenu: I didn't see Adventure for the atari 5200
Coleco Kid: Thats waht im talking about..... Yes Edward Hes amazing with that pacman and donkiey kong thing...are those real screens he shows?
Coleco Kid: hard to beleif...
Neil left chat session
Daniel Bienvenu: knowing Eduardo... i will say "yes! but some screens need flickering"
Coleco Kid: You live in france?
Daniel Bienvenu: No, otherwise I will sleep
Coleco Kid: Where are u located?
Daniel Bienvenu: Canada
Coleco Kid: How old r u?
Daniel Bienvenu: about 28 years old
Coleco Kid: You have an ADAM right?
Daniel Bienvenu: and I'm single
Daniel Bienvenu: I have an Adam, right
Coleco Kid: You like House music??
Daniel Bienvenu: I don't listen music... except when I went to super market
Coleco Kid: You arent like a slow kid r u?
Daniel Bienvenu: what s "slow kid" mean?
Coleco Kid: forget it...So what r u doing home on a sat night? Dont they got clubz in canada?
Daniel Bienvenu: It's a special event now. the Adamcon. I think it's normal to be online chating during the chating session of the adamcon, right?
Coleco Kid: no dought, sorry just asking.....
Daniel Bienvenu: no problem
Coleco Kid: For what its worth I think you have done a fine job with the whole Coleco thing, and I would love to do what u do! It would keep me out of clubz and keep me off the X!!!
Daniel Bienvenu: It's up to you.... I can't learn C language for you.
Coleco Kid: SO regular C, if i master that then I should be ready?
Coleco Kid: the whole NMI interupt confuzes the hell out of me
Coleco Kid: how do i talk to the rest of the people in the adamcon chatroom?
Daniel Bienvenu: if you know at least, what is "#include" "#define" variables types", "if statment" "do while" "while" swicth case" "for" etc... then you can start . but you will need to read my coleco programming document about the getput library
BobS-AC15: some of us are still watching the chat.
Daniel Bienvenu: the nmi... if you don't like it, don't use it
Coleco Kid: Slopesema!!! Gotta luiv ya
Daniel Bienvenu: the nmi is perfect to update sound
