Dr.D.: But please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org Ron: wouldn't hurt Daniel. The more you send, the more chance of it actually getting there Ron: 81 slides from people in absentia. That has to be a record Dr.D.: I have decided not to give a PP presentation -- I ran out of time to make a nice one. Harvie: It will get more coverage than a virus Dr.D.: So I am hoping for a blackboard etc. Ron: ah, the real tools of the trade Dr.D.: Otherwise, every spare moment at the convention will be making a miserable PP.

Ron: yes..... there are fees and charges, and levies, and stuff Daniel Bienvenu: BE RIGHT BACK Ron: and surcharges on the charges Erin and Pam: aren't levies against the NAFTA agreement :-) Roberto: BUt if you spend only 5 us,,,,,then you get like 5 .5 tickets....... George II: double chocolate fudge Roberto: and the 1/2 is worthless Ron: nah..... gimme 10 Erin and Pam: <P> pass some this way George Meeka: 1/2 tickets are worthless too Meeka: they have NO number on half a ticket Ron: ya don't get 1/2 an afghan Erin and Pam: LOL Roberto: but but Ron.....what happens IF that eleventh one is the WINNER Judy: well, Jean could maybe make you one Roberto: MUM WILL BE BUMMED Ron: then I will utter something suitably inappropriate George II: didn't we bomb them?

Roberto: Jean is TICKLED PINK that we are here and that we have the afghan raffle Ron: TWO ?? Ron: gee Judy: if you pay enough you get one Roberto: TWO ?!?!?!?!?!?!? Ron: I know Judy: o9r two Meeka: I have two of them also George II: i only have throws and comforters Ron: between the tickets I bought, and the airline extra freight to get it home..... but it was worth it Roberto: you see gang.......it is all aobut how much you spend on tickets; you CANNOT get something good for NUTHIN Ron: 'tis the truth he speaks Judy: did you have extra weight on that, Ron? Erin and Pam: but it only takes one to win....hmmmm.....philosophical mind at work George II: i have one fleece throw and one fur throw Ron: Yup. My suitcase was 15 lbs over, but then that wasn't really the afghan's fault... it was all the other junk I carried with me Judy: we can have 70 pounds per case, they would be so heavy you couldn't even lift it Roberto: BUT ..... Pam my dear, it HAS to be the right one to win !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ron: had to repack right there in the terminal Meeka: ya, but he who posses the mostest tickets has the bestest chances Pam LOL ;) George II: swamp the plane Erin and Pam: but, still.......it's only one Dr.D.: back, sorry Roberto: BUT you have to buy the RIGHT one my dear Erin and Pam: hi Rich Doug S.: welcome back dr.d Daniel Bienvenu: hello Dr.D Dr.D.: I was looking for something that I thought I knew where it was, but it wasn't there. Roberto: welcome back cotter....... George II: test Judy: welcome back, Dr D Daniel Bienvenu: @Dr.D: what is your opinion about talking coleco programming a saturday morning? Dr.D.: My true stamped official birth certificate :-) Judy: it is always in the last place you look Dr.D.: Found, whew. The OHIO one. Erin and Pam: the long form one? George II: new text list Dr.D.: Yes, the government doc, not the pretty hospital one with my tootsies on it. Erin and Pam: hehehe :-) George II: catalog Dr.D.: Daniel, not sure what you mean. Dr.D.: Do you want me to give the first session Saturday morning? Daniel Bienvenu: No, I know that Dale will do the presentation George II: format c: Dr.D.: Ah, you mean having Dale give your talk. Dr.D.: George.... Dr.D.: Why don't you just DELTREE *.* yourself and logout. Roberto: good one doc Dr.D.: I am bloody sick of your garbage here, and everyone else is, too. George II: how rude Roberto: true Dr.D.: For crying out loud, man...get a clue or get oujt. Roberto: now, now kids Dr.D.: Rude, I'm just getting started. Daniel Bienvenu: My question was simply about saturday morning, hearing of coleco programming, it's not too rough George II: bye Dr.D.: Kids nothing, I am saying what you are all thinking. Daniel Bienvenu: ?
George II left chat session Roberto: NO, we can handlew it Daniel end of story Dr.D.: Good riddance. Dr.D.: Jerk. Judy: way to go Dr D Dr.D.: As my thesis advisor would say, he is a jerk with capital A. Roberto: Pam where is dad ??????? Roberto: out in the wilds ?????? Roberto: with the bears and mooses ????? Erin and Pam: <P> he and Mom are in Niagara region Daniel Bienvenu: Ok, well I hope I did my presentation easy enough because it's supposed to be done for newbies with my technic of Coleco programming in C language. Roberto: and THAT is an excuse ?????? I think not Dr.D.: I am sure your talk will be fine, Daniel; last year's was. Daniel Bienvenu: And any comments is welcome Roberto: we can DI IT DANIEL Roberto: DO IT Dr.D.: You will be a hard act to follow :-) Ron: It'll work Daniel Erin and Pam: <P> no lap top, Bob, due to A/C adapter failure Roberto: for cryin out loud Dr.D.: I don't have time to test it...but I am pretty sure that I could run ADAMserve off this Powerbook using Virtual PC and a USB-to-serial converter attached null-modem to a real ADAM. Dr.D.: I would love to try it out... Dr.D.: But my ADAM stuff is packed away so tight here in the basement that I can't get it together in time for Friday. Roberto: real ADAM is not working forgot some vital parts my man Dr.D.: But all the docs suggest that the Virtual PC emulation of a PC serial port through USB is pretty good for "standard" stuff like telecom. Judy: like the insides Dr.D.: Oops, just a bare shell? Roberto: shh !!!!!!!!!!1 Roberto: don't tell mon Dr.D.: Hide a laptop inside it :-) Roberto: the darn UPS broke this one !!!! Dr.D.: Let out the magic smoke, did it? Roberto: jsut think what they would do with a VALUABLE ine Roberto: one Roberto: looks good though Dr.D.: Which board is fried? Erin and Pam: all brawn and no brains, eh? Dr.D.: I could try to smuggle a bare board in my suitcase. Roberto: and serves the purpose ........ an ADAM at EVERY convention Roberto: see KAPUT mon Roberto: si Dr.D.: Both boards? Daniel Bienvenu: I'm sorry to bother you with my presentation. I'm a bit anxious, probably because the presentation is soon. Dr.D.: or don't know? Roberto: lessee....ps, main bd, top board....... Doug S.: it's been gutted and stuffed, dr.d Dr.D.: Anxious, Daniel? I just learned tonight that I have to write a PowerPoint tomorrow! Roberto: shhh Dr.D.: Hehe...use it to serve cake at the banquet, then :-) Judy: don't worry be happy Roberto: OK Daniel Bienvenu: :-) Roberto: it si a GREAT doorprize !!!!!!!!!!!! Dr.D.: It will get done...I just have to write a lecture tomorrow to hand out to my anatomy class in the afternoon, since I am cancelling Monday's class due to travel. Dr.D.: I won't get back to Cleveland until 8 PM local time. Roberto: dos numbero uno, bitte Dr.D.: So I told them I would give them a handout with Monday's lecture on it. Daniel Bienvenu: If you see Dale friday, give him my presentation. Dr.D.: I had hoped to hand it out in class today...but I didn't get to write it (had to finish today's lecture). Roberto: will see DALE tomorrow !!!!!! Daniel Bienvenu: tomorrow? Dr.D.: So, gotta write it tomorrow after robot lab, and after a 11:45 AM meeting that may go an hour. Roberto: ya he is coming into conventino central TONIGHT Judy: make it short Dr D Dr.D.: Hehe, your hubby saith I have to fill 3 hours :-) Erin and Pam: draw a picture of the ADAM from three vantage points and call that a day Roberto: ........or so, Dr d......we are an easy bunch yo know Dr.D.: I could do that, Pam. Dr.D.: Art is fun. Roberto: ow many times do we not digress and talk about something else????? Erin and Pam: that would be Erin Dr.D.: haha Judy: it is all greek to me anyway Dr.D.: I could draw Erin..."Rin with Shell of ADAM". Erin and Pam: hehe Dr.D.: I will try hard not to put you to sleep, Judy. Dr.D.: I just noticed the keyboard switch. Judy: you will have a hard time putting me to sleep Roberto: you DO know Dr D, that every time we try to demonstrate something with real stuff, Murphy gets in the way Judy: I don't sleep much Dr.D.: As long as you get what you need... Daniel Bienvenu: Nooooooooo! not Murphy's law! Don't tell me that when I'm anxious! :-) Roberto: take a LOOOOOOOONG nap son Dr.D.: I know Doug is keen to get native ADAM floppy support under an NT-derived OS. Roberto: sis enor Roberto: si senor Ron: sidetracked again Dr.D.: Last time I looked, the people at Sydex were selling a floppy I/O SDK with source code and DLLs for about $500. Dr.D.: That would certainly be the lazy-man's way to do it... Roberto: thougth Sydex went under and is gone........ Dr.D.: It would work, but it would cost $$$. Dr.D.: No, they are still around as a law enforcement data recovery service. Dr.D.: That is why they yanked ANADISK. Dr.D.: However, they do sell floppy I/O code, or did the last time I looked at their website about a year ago. Roberto: which was?????? Dr.D.: A DOS-based low-level floppy disk analyzer program. Dr.D.: Great to figure out disk formats, formatting tricks, etc. Dr.D.: That was how I figured out why DOS INT 21H calls couldn't read an ADAM 320K disk. Daniel Bienvenu: Bob, after the chat session tonight, I will send you my zip archive for the presentation Daniel Bienvenu: My windows is doing weird things, I will need to reboot soon. Dr.D.: It showed me the side 1 formatting with the head fields set to 0 (like it was side 0). Dr.D.: And the BIOS chokes on that mismatch. Ron: are we looking for ANADISK, or did I miss something? Dr.D.: My ASM code on the server side of ADAMserve was a reimplementation that avoided that error check. Doug S.: can we not insert .asm code inside of the .c code that adamem is written in? Dr.D.: I must be typing too fast...too much geekspeak. Roberto: OK Daniel Dr.D.: You could, yes Doug. Dr.D.: however, if it tries to talk to disk controller directly, NT-derived OSes will block access, since it virtualizes the ports in protected mode. Ron: brb folks, gotta go upstairs and check on Mom Dr.D.: If you want to run only on MS-DOS or Win<=98, then it will likely work okay. Dr.D.: I know nothing about writing stuff to talk to system devices in NT, 2K, XP, etc. Doug S.: so how do the win32 data recovery programs access the floppy drives in any mode they wish? Dr.D.: The code that Sydex were selling would do this automagically. Dr.D.: They somehow get access through the protected modes. Dr.D.: Either they manage to do the equivalent of su root and do what they want, or else they go through the OS virtual disk state machine to do the stuff. Dr.D.: And it wouldn't surprise me if, at some point, user-ring code might not be allowed to do too low a level of stuff with the hardware controllers...or the controllers put into modern computers might be crippled so as not to have the flexibility of formatting in the old. Dr.D.: Even in the old days, there were some clone FD controller chips that didn't duplicate all the functions of the "original". Erin and Pam: <P> Judy, what major stores are in the area of the hotel? Dr.D.: And now I have lost the ladies :-) Erin and Pam: oh no we've been lost for a while :-) Dr.D.: This is why I don't want to write my PP on the plane, Erin will kill me, or zonk out... Erin and Pam: that would all depend on whose company you prefer...the computer's or mine :-) Meeka: lol, they havent let usa shop yet Dr.D.: I just don't know how people hack hardware nowadays under Win2K or XP, Doug...maybe they don't, any more. Meeka: they keep sayin we dont "need" anything Erin and Pam: who said anything about need!?!?! Ron: back Erin and Pam: hi Ron Dr.D.: I get to see the laptop every day. I have seen Erin for about, oh, 2 days in January. You do the math :-) Roberto: whoa dude youa re married ya know Erin and Pam: still...that doesn't give me much confidence :-P Dr.D.: haha Dr.D.: It would be rude to type the whole flight. Roberto: proabably Erin and Pam: well folks....I gotta get up at 5AM and Pam 6ish so I think we're off to LaLa land Dr.D.: lala probably a good idea on this end too. Roberto: ok be good and get that day of work in so's you can get here Dr.D.: I have to put back the mess I made looking for my birth certificate. Ron: yes..... unless you're on the west coast. We LIVE in la la land Dr.D.: No,that is LA land. Dr.D.: L.A. Meeka: k Roberto: totally cool Erin and Pam: be good?!?!?! what kind of advice is that...pish Meeka: nighty night Roberto: Ronasl Ron: lotusland Roberto: Ronald Roberto: ok so it not good Dr.D.: Listen to the sirens...

Erin and Pam: <P> Judy, Meeka, I'm putting you in charge of helping Erin find a dept. store so she can shop for me Roberto: go to bed people tis almost the midnight hour Roberto: YE S MA'AM Meeka: k Dr.D.: Yes, I am off now, Senor.
