BobS: had to help the boy with his house tonight
RichD.: I think you are running out of resorts, Richard.
Daniel Bienvenu: I did an update in my library named getput today... and I will probable do another update soon. After talking with Dale, I see that many useful functions can be added in my library.
RichD.: But again, I am not a physician, YMMV, standard disclaimers apply.
rich-c: there are techniques here you don't have in the US because the doctors are afraid of lawsuits if they use innovative treatments
RichD.: Like Laetrile? :-)
RichD.: Sometimes there is innovative, and sometimes there is a bit far out...
rich-c: no, for example like low-voltage cardioversion
BobS: the doctors are afraid ti tekk what us wrong with us.....
Daniel Bienvenu: I'm in a rush to prepare my coleco stuff for this saturday.
RichD.: Well, I don't want you to end up as an experiment gone wrong.
rich-c: it's been well-proven in Europe for a long time, and standard in Canada for the past two years

TO Bound: well I guess so

Pam / Rin: leave a little room in your suitcase - I have a couple of things to send back with you
BobS: took me a second time and drugs to stay and it still pops out frequently
TO Bound: I am bringing an extra bag
Pam / Rin: you make it sound like a dislocated knee, Bob
rich-c: here they apparently do it under general anaesthetic - in by 10, out by 5
RichD.: Are you driving to Toronto or taking a bus/train, Cynthia?
BobS: kind of is Pam
BobS: only with yoru heart
TO Bound: Via Rail of course
Pam / Rin: I know it's not funny Bob but you make it sound that way
RichD.: I don't know what kind of drive it would be.
BobS: oh well tis what it is
Pam / Rin: four hours Rich
RichD.: I meant "road quality" as well.
TO Bound: too sressful for Grandma
Pam / Rin: actually, road quality is fine once you get outiside of Toronto
RichD.: If it's all like the 401 then it would be stressful.

BobS: that's the drug I am on too
Pam / Rin: if you hit the river you've gone too far : )
BobS: 200mmillegrams daily
Pam / Rin: Rie, where did you go?
RichD.: "A gramme is better than a damn"\
TO Bound: almost you can see the Ambassador bridge from our house
rich-c: I'm on 3 daily first week, 2 daily next week, one daily thereafter - it is a nasty piece of pharmacy
RichD.: Sounds like a steroids regimen...or a Prozac regimen...high doses at first, taper off.
TO Bound: Where is Marie?
Pam / Rin: Aunt Cynthia, I made the reservations for Sunday's dinner tonite
rich-c: with the coumadin and cardizem and the new ones, I'm taking so many pills I rattle when I walk

RichD.: Alumnus worker discount?
Pam / Rin: LOL, Dad
Teary Eyed: poutine i think!!!!!!
TO Bound: Please enough swear words Tim Hortons indeed
RichD.: So where, then?
Pam / Rin: (Rich slinks off to wash his mouth out)
rich-c: a place you've been, Rich
RichD.: I don't swear.
Pam / Rin: Mandarin
RichD.: The Mandarin?
RichD.: Well, be sure to get the Lucky Coin, and some pennies for the fountain.
rich-c: can't say one and only, since there's a bunch of them
Teary Eyed: erin is that the place you used to tell me about????
rich-c: not Chinese New Year now - no more lucky coins
Pam / Rin: they don't want you to throw pennies in the fountain - it kills the fish and the turtles
Pam / Rin: <E> yes it is the place I told you about Rie - Chinese food
RichD.: I was bad, then, I threw in a penny...a US one, too (LOL).
Pam / Rin: 1.5 cents Canadian
rich-c: Harvie, did you get to the computer fair Sunday?
RichD.: So I get 1.5 wishes.
Harvie: If you throw toonies in at least they can buy new fish
Pam / Rin: we'll remember that Harvie
Harvie: No I didn't rich , too busy(lazy)
rich-c: pity I was wondering how it went; I couldn't make it
BobS: they sold stuff
rich-c: oh, they usually are pretty good at selling stuff, Bob, at good prices too
rich-c: last month I got the Windows 98 Resource Book for $10, complete with CD
Yan: does this fair have old stuff...or it's just for new products?
Pam / Rin: do you know when the next one is Dad?
rich-c: yes, the next one is Sunday August 25th
BobS: then that is where you should have been
Teary Eyed: ohh ok
Harvie: Mostly old stuff Yan
rich-c: mostly recent DOS stuff, Yan, but one never knows
rich-c: no, I had other business at the hospital, Bob
BobS: recent type stuff that the stores don't stock anymore?????
rich-c: a certain amount of obsolescent stuff, yes
BobS: bummer DUDE
rich-c: got a 16-bit LAN card (PCMCIA) for my laptop - it's also a 28.8 modem
Judy: what were you doing at the hospital, Rich
TO Bound: Does your visit mean that you won't be coming here tomrrow?
Yan: cool...I'm in the old stuff bye the way...I have a growing collection of old computers and consoles
rich-c: oh when my heart acts up I have to go there because the doctors offices don't have the monitoring equipment or drugs needed
BobS: cool
Judy: I see!!!
BobS: dad in law and I both agree......doctors are quacks...............
rich-c: I have the same problem as Bob but am less advanced towards bringing it under control
BobS: jsut wiht a LITTLe more insight than everyonw else
Judy: was over at my parents today, Dad is doing so good after the hip replacement
Yan: and I love DOS program..I'm a littl bit masochist
BobS: the ameodroone will do ti Richard
rich-c: yeah, if the side effects don't kill me first!!! ;-)
Pam / Rin: they'd better not, Dad
BobS: that IS the problem, eh???
rich-c: think I mentioned Judy, a routine hip replacement these days is really easy
Judy: the drug has helped Bob big time
rich-c: there's one week you don't want to know about, but here they keep you so doped up you don't know
Judy: but he has been off his feet for 6 weeks so that hasn't helped him
rich-c: why has Bob been off his feet for six weeks?
Judy: not him was out of the hospital in a week
Judy: it has only been two now
rich-c: oh, your father - actually if you had a working brin you could walk from the operating room to your bed
rich-c: the operation leaves you able to walk, mechanically
RichD.: What other way is there? :-)
Judy: he almost did, was walking on it 5 hours after surgery
BobS: that's right Richard.......u\but it was a LOT scary for hime to try and walk on it
rich-c: here the rule is - do not put up with pain; don't be a hero
Harvie: Metaphorically?
rich-c: if you feel pain coming on, yell for a painkiller - it will come
RichD.: Phantasmagorically?
Pam / Rin changed username to Rin / Pam
Judy: he had so much pain before surgery that maybe he doesn''t have it now
rich-c: wow, he really came through well - it was 48 hours befoer I could get out of bed
rich-c: well, I haven't taken any sort of painkiller for anything since I left the hospital
Judy: they had him up first thing that morning and he had his surgery at midnight
rich-c: and I was just taking a single precautionary pill before phsio once a day while there
rich-c: oh, mine was done a 7 a.m. - doctors keep the most sadistic hours :=8
Judy: he is doing that to, I went with him today to therapy, still wants to run
rich-c: maybe Pam can tell you when it was done and I came out of recovery
rich-c: just so long as he doesn't take up bungee jumping, Judy ;-)
Rin / Pam: <P> I don't remember, Dad
Rin / Pam: <P> maybe 2 PM, but I'm not sure
rich-c: I think it was likely early afternoon, but I was in no shape to notice
Judy: no, we will draw that line there
rich-c: anyway assuming things go routinely well, the hip operation way bdats out living with the pain
rich-c: anyway, Judy, how far does Robert have the heart under control now?
Judy: yes, the pain he had before is gone
rich-c: and on my experience, Judy, it is gone for good
Judy: it goes in and out be he feels much better and when it does go it isn't out like it used to be
Judy: sure hope that is true, it is great to see dad coming thru this so well

TO Bound confirmed ban
rich-back: gueswhen Daniel left he took me with him :-(
Judy: now we have to get mom to get her to get her other knee replaced
Yan confirmed ban
rich-back: from what I hear, knee replacement is not nearly as satisfying as hip
rich-back: a couple of our friends have had unhappy experiences with knee work
Judy: it is for my mom, had one done about 2 years ago, helped so much
RichD.: You sound like you are comparing plumbers!
rich-back: well, medicine is still an art - don't know about plumbing
TO Bound: I thought medicince was a practice.
Judy: that can be also, Bob was having problems at work with that
BobS: plumbing is a SHEAR game of luck
RichD.: Practice makes perfect :-)
Harvie: All a plumber needs to know is "poop runs downhill, payday is thursday"
rich-back: there you go Bob, the ultimate wisdom netly encapsulated
Judy: cute, Harvie

rich-back: you too, huh?
RichD.: I am glad to let the others clean up after them, now.
rich-back: but you'll have to train them on how to use an Adam
RichD.: And clean up with everything else, the lab has turned into a real dump, tragedy of the commons, since my last 2-week stint with "The Block O' Slug Duty".
Rin / Pam: :-(
RichD.: I even got in a good rant about it 2 lab meetings ago.
TO Bound left chat session
RichD.: Not much effect...but it will not be my headache, but my <soon-to-be-ex> boss's.
rich-back: a good rant works wonders if not applied too often - and only when deserved
RichD.: I hardly ever rant.
RichD.: So when I do, people notice.
rich-back: see above
Judy: sometimes it doesn't help but makes you feel better
RichD.: Well, it draws a line in the sand, builds in some CYA.
rich-back: the results in some cases may be long-term, Judy
Judy: I have been known to
Rin / Pam: <P> that explains my teen years :-)
RichD.: So when the bad thing happens, they can't say they weren't warned :-)
RichD.: You ranted a lot as a teen, Pam? Whoda thunk it?

RichD.: Ron or no Ron :-)
Judy: low
RichD.: Are Jack and Jean still up to having us visit?
Rin / Pam: <P> Aunt C. had to go
rich-back: yes - the cardiologist told me today not to travel beyond easy driving range of a good Ontario hospital
RichD.: Well, my $$$ have been sent, and plane reservations if nobody else comes, I will swim for 3 days.
BobS: they are looking forward to it STRONGLY
RichD.: It will make the convention webpage easy, just one pic of me in the pool.
BobS: Jean is ready andJack is Jack......alwasy ready
Yan: I'm here!!
Harvie: Back in five
rich-back: we were wondering, Yan!
Judy: we will be there, Dr D
Yan: :-)
RichD.: Then we can all play water polo.
rich-back: if you didn't hear me tell him, Yan, Daniel's books are in the mail
RichD.: I bet this will be the first ADAMcon with no real ADAM in sight, only emulators.
Judy: I don't know about the water polo, have never played but I like to swim
(Teary Eyed winks)
BobS: maybe....maybe.........Dr D
RichD.: I'd be afraid to try to bring an ADAM on a plane...
BobS: ship it usps

RichD.: The inspectors in security had never seen a Powerbook like it.
Yan: thanks rich...we are waiting for those ....we are eager to read it
RichD.: So they had to give it the extra-special inspection to be sure that it didn't have an atomic bomb in it.
rich-back: I doubt they'd know anyway
Judy: bob flew with an Adam in a carry on before
BobS: that doesn't take much Rich.....most of those security types have not seen much of this world
RichD.: I remember Ron Mitchell bringing his entire PowerMate HD system on a plane!
rich-back: from what I hear the security types are the intellectual dregs of guard services
RichD.: And getting charged $75 extra because of the weight.
RichD.: I think that was at ADAMcon 12.
Judy: we have the oldest one in our airport
rich-back: you can spot him by teh way his knuckles drag on the ground?
rich-back: I'm seeing the damndest horror stories about airport security on my Autoweek chat

Harvie: When steering horses you say "haw" to turn left and "gee" to turn right

Daniel bienvenu left chat session
rich-2: the fruits and vegetables and flowers sure like our weather - our peaches are in already!
Pam / Rin: Peaches!
Pam / Rin: Fuzzy little peaches!
rich-2: yep - got a basket at No Frills today
Harvie: Bob, "every time it rains it rains pennies from heaven"
RichD.: Breyer's peach ice cream.
rich-2: also those little yellow plums your mother is so fond of
BobS: but, but, but.....pennies aren't worth much these days harv
Judy: we wish, we only get wet with our rain
Pam / Rin: be thankful, Judy - imagine the dents in the RV
rich-2: we're waiting now to see what the rain does for our pears
Judy: and boating and rain don't go together
Pam / Rin: a boat too? Wow
rich-2: hey, it's only a 35' cabin cruiser, right, Bob? :-)
Judy: we have plums so far
Judy: not quite
Harvie: But without rain how would the boat float?
rich-2: the first of our tomatos showed a hint of red today
Pam / Rin: ask the people in Peterborough : )
RichD.: Antigravity paint.
Judy: good question
Pam / Rin: hey Dad, I'm coming to eat at your restaurant : )
Judy: I picked two tomatoes at mom's today
Judy: but they were really small
rich-2: yours are ready to pick? we're jealous!!!
rich-2: mind you, when ours do come in, they all come in in a rush
Judy: not mine don't do the veggies anymore
Judy: the birds ate everything
rich-2: I just gave the crabapple tree a second spray to retard the fungus attack and it seems to be responding
Judy: but the trees are producing fruit this year
rich-2: yes, the (empty) house next door has cherry trees - the birds had a field day
Pam / Rin: (puts on seers hat) I see crabapple jelly . . .
Judy: we are having a problem with the magnolia trees, bought the stuff to spray them but haven't done it yet
Pam / Rin: didn't anyone pick the fruit at Rita's?
BobS: well spray that one too and keep the cherries
rich-2: cross your fingers, daughter, and walk three time round widdershins under the full moon
Pam / Rin: will do that on our walk at the trailer Dad
rich-2: the Erias's did pick a few baskets, yes, but got enough off their own tree rally
rich-2: problem is the other neighbour whose crabapple is very badly infected and untreated
rich-2: the spores blow over and hit our tree
BobS: and the buggies migrate to your trees, right ?
rich-2: oh, well that's a given in any area, so no concern
rich-2: no fun when she gets tent caterpillers, though, I admit
Judy: we have the spray for that too
Harvie: Don't fumigate, litigate
Judy: it will even kill the Japanese beetles
rich-2: yes, so do we, although the greenies are trying to stop us from using it
Judy: have black spot on the roses, also, so we spent a fair amount at Flowerland the other night
BobS left chat session
RichD.: We have Masque of the Red Death at our place.
rich-2: our garden - really Frances', she does all the work - is absolutely running riot this year
Judy: the flowers are doing well
rich-2: the Shasta daisies are up above my belt line, and we have a parsnip up to my chin
Pam / Rin: it's all the rain Dad
rich-2: well as long as it gets into the pears and makes them big and sweet, I can live with it
Judy: and even have the waterlilies blooming this year
Harvie: Our thistles are as high as an elephants eye
Pam / Rin: I thought that was supposed to be corn, Harvie
Judy: they are beautiful
rich-2: once they ripen, Harvie, look for goldfinches
Harvie: You have to fertilize corn
Judy: well, night all folks, Bob has to go to bed, worked until 9:30 tonight and is done in
rich-2: I sympathize, Judy; see you two in two weeks, then
RichD.: Gnite all.
Harvie: Goodnight Slopsemas, be well
Pam / Rin: have fun next week Judy - and stay dry
RichD.: Hope your Dad is feeling better, Judy.
Judy: will not be on next week so talk to you in two, bye for now
Pam / Rin: and healthy!
