Dr.D.<undefined>: Meesa back.
Guy B.: Welcome back Dr. D
rich-c: welcome back, Dr. D.
Pamela: it went something like: "I just talked to my mother. It seems there's something you forgot to tell me!"
Dr.D.<undefined> changed username to Dr.D.<undefined>
Dr.D.<undefined>: Stupid thing...
Guy B.: Rich, did you try entering a letter for the DVD burner?
rich-c: we're just discussing why Windows thinks my new DVD burner is two different drives
Dr.D.<undefined> changed username to Dr.D.
Dr.D.: There it changed it.
Pamela: much better, Rich
rich-c: no, the BIOS assigned it as G and I and moved the CD burner to H all on its own
rich-c: I looked in teh BIOS and it seems to have things straight there
rich-c: also on the POST screen (I don't allow the Windoze splash screen)
Guy B.: Then it's Windows, not the BIOS.
BobS: hmmmmmm
Dr.D.: I forgot that NS 4.x Mac has this typing window horizontal scroll bug...I'll be back in a different browser momentarily.
rich-c: one would think, though I plan to prowl again

Daniel Bienvenu: I still don't understand what is going on... and why Guy B. are twins.
Ron: left Guy and right Guy
rich-c: Guy fell off and re-entered - it happens
Guy B.: I crashed. So, there's another one of me and it's gone.
Dr.D.: In stereo!
Ron: don't let the touch
BobS: and it USED to be a NICE island, but now it is just 'white'
rich-c: we can get rid of one of them though
Ron: Guy and anti-Guy
Guy B.: Don't need to. It fell off on it's own.
Mrs. Vilneff: Daniel, Russell and I got married on New Year's Eve after fifteen years of living together
Dr.D.: Then we must leave them both intact, Ron, or the balance of the Universe will be upset.
BobS: Daniel.......did you get the news ??????? Pam got married NEW YEAR'S EVEC
Ron: yes, true
rich-c: Daniel, I have a copy of Clip Cache as a zip file - it's 800K
Ron: musta been one hell of a party Mrs. Vilneff
Mrs. Vilneff: 'twas, Ron
Ron: I bet
rich-c: will allow you to receive an attachment of that size?
Ron: S'ok Bob.. I won't be white for long
Ron: We get this arctic air once in a while, and it screws things up
Daniel Bienvenu: rich: I verified and the limit is 3Meg to send
Daniel Bienvenu: Rich: maybe it's 3Meg to receive
Dr.D.: If Ontario had an alert system, they'd be at orange after their party :-)
Ron: My ADAM hard drive died
Dr.D.: Mini Wini?
Ron: Bob soldered it, AND NOW IT'S DEAD
Mrs. Vilneff: I think they call it an arctic outflow, Ron
Guy B.: It did! How long did it last you?
Mrs. Vilneff: hey, we weren't that raucous!
(Guy B. throws a hot potato at BobS.)
Ron: yes.... arctic air meeting Pacific air
Daniel Bienvenu: Dr.D: Still doesn't have to e-mail of "subscription"
Ron: result is white
moved to room Meeting Place
BobS: say what ???????? only replaced the wire with alligator clips
changed username to rich-c
Daniel Bienvenu: rich?
Ron: I know, was just teasing
Dr.D.: I cut and pasted your E-mail address right into the subscription software.
Guy B.: Now we have twin Clees.
Ron: think this particular hard drive has been on its way out for years
Ron: I have others
Mrs. Vilneff: oh lord - two dads???
rich-c: someone pulled teh plug on me, had to re-enter
Ron: but now I have to remember how to set one up
Daniel Bienvenu: Rich: About the limit ... I think it's 3Meg because I can send a 3Meg file
BobS: can be done easily, when you get stuck holler........
Ron: something wrong with the transporter
Ron: someone installed RAM Doubler
rich-c: OK I will send you the program then as an email attachment later tonight
BobS: shees Pam I thought I duped him for good
BobS: dumped
Dr.D.: It's scrolled off my chat window; Daniel, tell me your new address again, so I can confirm it?
Mrs. Vilneff: nice try, Bob
rich-c requested to ban rich-c
Dr.D. confirmed ban
Guy B. confirmed ban
BobS confirmed ban
Mrs. Vilneff confirmed ban

Ron: I have killed one Mr. Clee
Guy B.: Ok, we have one Clee again.
Daniel Bienvenu: My "more permanent" e-mail is :

Daniel Bienvenu:
Mrs. Vilneff: did we dump the right one though
Daniel Bienvenu: Rich?
BobS: hey Pam, I "try" you know
Daniel Bienvenu: still there?
Dr.D.: It's there, Daniel. You are subscribed. And the radio button to send confirmations is set on by default for all new subscriptions.
BobS: probablynot
Mrs. Vilneff: and I appreciate it :
rich-c: how do you know which one was picked?
Mrs. Vilneff: we kept the good Daddy
Ron: slit them both in half and then rebuilt one
BobS: the "sugar daddy" ???????
rich-c: anyway yes Daniel, still here
Mrs. Vilneff: I'm not touching that
BobS: oh yea.....that is what richard thought they did in surgery
Mrs. Vilneff: rats, I'm outta potables - be right back
Ron: potables?
Judy: how is the hip doing, Richard?
Dr.D.: I just sent you a test E-mail, Daniel, to
rich-c: just fine, Judy, still using the cane but can walk decent distances very comfortably
BobS: snacks??????
BobS: and no pain???????
Judy: that is great, Richard
rich-c: will have some restrictions up through six months but most are easing
Mrs. Vilneff: ran out of juice, Ron
Ron: (Ron sends Juice)
Mrs. Vilneff: thank you
rich-c: haven't touched a pain killer since I left hospital - not even one Tylenol
Ron: bought 3 cans of chicken noodle soup for Mother.....want some of that?
Ron: it's about all poor Mother can keep down at this point
rich-c: and yes, I'm driving teh van easily, and handling the groceries and stuff
BobS: if you are that pain free Richard......then yo are doing great !
rich-c: now you understand why I was so eager to go in and get it done
moved to room Meeting Place
BobS: watch her close Ron......don't want Mum to get too sick with this stuff
Ron: good progress Rich
Ron: have I been bumped
changed username to Guy B.
Ron: no....
Daniel Bienvenu: Dr.D: the "antispam" filter is activated.... I found the bug
Ron: yes Bob.... this one has hit hard too
Guy B.: Your not the only one.
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to Pamela
rich-c: your mother is still having a hard time, Ron?
Dr.D.: Ah.
Ron: yes
Guy B.: Looks like everyone's back.
Daniel Bienvenu: I need to filter to receive
Pamela: that was almost too easy
Ron: Think the trip to Edmonton may have been a little too much
Daniel Bienvenu: the adamcon e-mail
Dr.D.: Allow anything from to pass through.
Dr.D.: You won't get spam, the list traps mail from all non-members.
Pamela: if it's the same thing that's going around Ron then she's fortunate that she can keep anything down
Dr.D.: The only way spam would get through is if a subscriber posted it.
Ron: true
Daniel Bienvenu: Dr.D: it's not my filter... it's the Yahoo antispam filter ... it's a kind of "collective" antispam filter
Pamela: I didn't want to look at anything resembling food for 72 hours after I first got it
rich-c: make sure it will pass an attachment from me, Daniel
Ron: that's it
Pamela: it took me about two weeks to be able to stomach anything with fat in it
Ron: you feel like you're going to die, and wish you could
Pamela: you'd have to die to feel better
Judy: did you have the flu, Pam?
Pamela: except ice cream - I wanted things that were really cold
Pamela: back at the end of November Judy
Ron: I always something's wrong when I don't feel like going near the fridge
Daniel Bienvenu: Rich: GO!
Judy: I had the shot and so far I haven't gotten any of it, knock on wood!!!
Dr.D.: Good, Daniel.
Pamela: the other thing you might want to try Ron are Presidents Choice Frozen Fruit Juice Bars
rich-c: OK, will likely do it when I logoff here - the computer doesnt seem happy with multitasking tonight
Ron: sounds like a plan
Pamela: no fat, made from 100% juice and very flavourful
Guy B.: Mine neither Rich.
Ron: will check that out Pamela
Pamela: I got my flu shot on Friday and got sick on the Monday night. I don't think it had time to take effect
rich-c: my first dump was my fault, but the second was the spam filter
Daniel Bienvenu: Dr.D: send me antoher test!
rich-c: well, the flu shots don't cover all the varieties of flu going around
Ron: obviously not. We both had one in Nov
Pamela: Ron you can get boxes of six of those in the regular freezer section in orange or raspberry, or in the club pack freezer section in boxes of twelve in raspberry, orange and mango
Ron: good Pamela, will check them out
Daniel Bienvenu: talking about flu... that's funny because last year it was the "Northwalk" virus (or something like that)... FLU
Daniel Bienvenu: at the same period
Daniel Bienvenu: in january
Pamela: since I'm such an ice cream nut, I bought them in the summer as a substitute with less fat and we both loved them
rich-c: yes, the strains or varieties of flu change every year
rich-c: this year the doctors guessed wrong on which would be mopst prevelant
Judy: was Ryan's birthday today, he is 3
Pamela: we want Mama to get better Ron
Ron: me too
Guy B.: And he's doing fine Judy?
Pamela: and you not to get it
Ron: she's 88, and she deserves better than this
Judy: yes, finely , he has been sick
rich-c: absolutely, Ron
Pamela: you are so right
Guy B.: Seems kids are coming down with colds and the flu this winter.
Judy: had a virus
Pamela: it's been a very bad winter for colds and flu for the kids, according to my friends with children
Judy: and he is in daycare and has a problem every winter
BobS: and this week is back to school........wait a few weeks and it will probably go wild in the schools
Judy: wanted him to have a flu shot but got sick and couldn't have it
Ron: Our hospital emergency dept is stacked up with 'em
Guy B.: Well folks, got to go. Good chance I'll be able to make it this Saturday if I get what I need to done by the afternoon. So I'll see you then.
Pamela: I'll bet
Pamela: g'nite Guy
rich-c: yes, that's why experienced teachers tend to be healthy - they've got antibodies for everything
Ron: be well Guy. Don't get flu eh?
Guy B.: Trying not to.
rich-c: see you Guy - take care
