Christina: Yes it was funny Christina: I tried to speak french in stores Christina: but they knew I was american an dspoke english to me Pamela / Erin: and they spoke English back to you, right? rich-c: rich, from Pam's question, I have a problem Guy B.: That's the best way to try out what you learned. Pamela / Erin: it happens in Quebec too, Christina Dr. D.: Problem? Christina: They thought that ALL americans were fat hamburger eating people Dr. D.: haha Dr. D.: many are :-) rich-c: I have stuff (jpegs, etc.) on my ftp site and when I link to them (from chatboards, etc.) they load and come up Christina: they thought we ate pizza and burgers for every meal Dr. D.: Tell them about your pizza... Guy B.: That's one thing I never took while I was in high school. A foreign language. If I did, it would have been Italian. BobS: not true Pamela / Erin: is your heritage Italian, Guy? Christina: their idea of American pizza had fried eggs on top Guy B.: I'm part Italian. Pamela / Erin: ick Christina: it was not american to say the least Guy B.: For sure. Christina: but it tasted alright rich-c: ask james abiut the Japanese idea of pizza sometime Christina: just different Dr. D.: Not coming soon to Little Caesar's, though. Pamela / Erin: Guy, how did you manage in a foreign country with the language barriers? Christina: hehehehehehe Christina: it was alright Pamela / Erin: double ick Guy B.: Well, we did have some that did speak English. Christina: I've been taking french since I was in the second grade Pamela / Erin: did it help? Dr. D.: Hey, it could've had escargot on it. Pamela / Erin: triple ick Christina: Also my "sister" spoke english to me so it turned out okay rich-c: how can I make my pictures accessible to someone using a regular WWW browser? I get a "not authorized" Guy B.: Seems to have paid off there. Dr. D.: Wonder what truffle pizza with pate de foi gras would taste like...or cost per slice? Christina: IIIICCCCKKKK Dr. D.: Re: your question, Richard: Pamela / Erin: you said it, Christina. Christina: the food is great Pamela / Erin: Oh and Erin wants to know how Alypsia Californica would taste? Guy B.: How about we stick to what we all love on our pizza. Dr. D.: Are you giving them a link of the form ftp://..... or http://..... ? Christina: at least my "mother" could cook rich-c: you do not want to know, daughter Dr. D.: Remember the ST:TNG season 1 episode about the terraformers? Pamela / Erin: yes Dr. D.: The ones who found intelligent life in the sand? Dr. D.: What they called humans? Dr. D.: "Ugly bags of mostly water". rich-c: oddly enough, it responds to teh http://www. Dr. D.: That's what it would taste like. Pamela / Erin: ugly bags of mostly wateer? Pamela / Erin: ick ick ick ick ick ick Dr. D.: Salty rubbery bits. Christina: grooossss daddy Dr. D.: Maybe like squid or octopus. Dr. D.: So then I guess that the permissions aren't set correctly for the files. Pamela / Erin: if we can't post them on yours Dad, perhaps I can send them to Rich and he can post them Dr. D.: If it is a Unix host, the permissions have to be set to enable reading by "groups" and "other", in addition to you, the owner. rich-c: I upload to it with an ftp program and that's fine Guy B.: Rich, I did download and try that Aida32 program on the Gateway. It didn't detect any kind of an error. But, at least the program told me what kind of memory stick I have. Dr. D.: I could do that, as long as there aren't gigabytes of photos and lots of traffic. Pamela / Erin: I'd only send a selection Rich - not the whole mess rich-c: maybe you could persuade her to be selective - highly selective? Dr. D.: FTP is okay for transfer...it's just what permissions the files end up getting once there...or perhaps your upload directory isn't public. rich-c: I believe the latter is the case, Rich - have to see if John can change it Dr. D.: I am still owed a certain photo of Ms. Rin, methinks...I could take that in trade for hosting the others :-) Harvie Powis: Is this on Tamcotec, rich? Pamela / Erin: we still have to find it, Rich Pamela / Erin: as soon as we do, I'll send it rich-c: yes, Harv Dr. D.: A likely story... :-) Dr. D.: Or else re-pose her and re-shoot it :-) Pamela / Erin: I found it and now i've misplaced it Dr. D.: (I bet she's red to the roots now) Harvie Powis: Well, John only runs MS stuff, he doesn't use Linux/Unix. Pamela / Erin: naw, not quite rich-c: guess it's a directory permission, then - the links specify the exact file Dr. D.: I meant blushing from embarrassment. rich-c: Frances wants DSL so maybe when I check on that I'll ask about the other Guy B.: I read in today's paper that Microsoft is facing a $3 billion fine from the EU. Guy B.: Good Idea, Rich. You will love the speed. Pamela / Erin: check the specs Dad - I think John offers free website with your DSL rich-c: yes, some of their business practices have been found to be naughty (surprise!) rich-c: he offers free webspace with dialup - that's what I have now Dr. D.: Who'd have thunk it? Billy-boy doing something illegal? Guy B.: And H.P. is going sell computers in Asia with Linux instead of Windows.

BobS: a BIG space Pam/Rin rich-c: if it has a 350 it's a GM, Pam; the Ford is a 351 Pamela / Erin: you're carrying a lot more weight with the motorhome, Bob Harvie Powis: Usually poorly :) Pamela / Erin: I was waiting for "very carefully" : ) rich-c: no, with considerable difficulty is more like Pamela / Erin: but it goes like stink, Daddy rich-c: yes, I know, daughter Leadfoot Pamela / Erin: tha's me Harvie Powis: Actually the one ton is a flatbed so has lots of clear vision out the back rich-c: I know; Rich squealed on you ;-) Pamela / Erin: what did he say? rich-c: which would be great if you could tell from that where the corners really are rich-c: I'll never tell Dr. D.: Hehe Pamela / Erin: it's a male conspiracy rich-c: you're starting to catch on Pamela / Erin: Richard Drushel, when I get my hands on you . . . Judy: Texas may get exciting Dr. D.: It will have to be at an ADAMcon...you'll have calmed down by then. Dr. D.: We could take bets. rich-c: you think?
