snakepit-Ron: that's it
Rin-n-Rich: last night for about 10 minutes
Joan: it is called small schools and kids choose a school that they want to be a part of, gased on their style of learning
Guy B.: Oh, so what did you choose?
Guy B.: Your dad is back.
Joan: the down side is that right now the seniors are not included, so there are like 35 students in some classes, so much for SMALL schools
Guy B.: So, you don't have all your friends together in the same school then?

Guy B.: Oh wow, that must have been hard for everyone. Did you get the courses you wanted to take ?
BobS: Jill is somewhere with Jeffery and Rufus
Meeka: she is puttin Jeffy to bed I believe
Judy: Pam , we went shopping for Jillian this morning, she bought out the store
Pamela: no that's seniors as in freshmen, sophomores, juniors and . . .
snakepit-Ron: oh
Joan: well the whole point of small schools is the raise the student to teacher ratio, but our school is cheap and decided to fire teachers and not hire new ones, how intelligent is that???
Pamela: I'm not surprised Judy
Pamela: what did she buy?
Daniel Bienvenu: Question : What you guys are watching in this picture?
snakepit-Ron: we have a lot of that going on up here
Meeka: we told ya, "the store"

Rin-n-Rich: I wish it didn't...I miss having an excuse to go to football games again.
snakepit-Ron: think I would have preferred marching band
Pamela: why do you need an excuse to go to football games?
Christina: Speaking of the marching band, they didi really well at last night's football game\
Rin-n-Rich: me too...jocks and band people were separate species at my high school <D>
Rin-n-Rich: good to hear <D>
Christina: eventhough the football team lost
Doug S.: did you remember the suitcase you wanted mom?

Christina: I'm just a band geek, I go to the football games to see the marching band and my friends in the band
Daniel Bienvenu: whi is winning the "Spy Hunter" contest?
snakepit-Ron: not me
Pamela: any excuse : )
snakepit-Ron: but then I'm not all there

Pamela: which reminds me, I need to see if Dad has a copy tomorrow
Judy: found something better than water
Pamela: oh??????
Harvie: The good doctor has a rom
Harvie: image
snakepit-Ron: what would that be Judy?
Rin-n-Rich: Nobody has that I have seen, though I am just told that Doug and Bob have been playing "Spy Hunter" <D>
Pamela: won't help me at the moment Harvie - I can't load anything on my system
Judy: frappucchino
Meeka: lol
Rin-n-Rich: I need to teach Rin how to play it <D>
Daniel Bienvenu: @Guy : My suggestion for a rom file to download:
Pamela: shall have to see if Dad has a cart and play it on the ADAM
snakepit-Ron: lait frappee avec du cafe au chocolate
Christina: Spy hunter is one of the best games ever created
snakepit-Ron: pardon - chocolat
Rin-n-Rich: Christina, we hare having a contest in "Spy Hunter", highest score (as proven by screen shot) gets a prize sent by Ron Mitchell <D>
Judy: that is close, Ron
Rin-n-Rich: I agree!!!! <D>
Rin-n-Rich: maybe with golf scores I'd have a chance

Christina: mum helped me too
Pamela: what happened Murray?
Murray: MSN keeps booting me off...
Meeka: he got booted by MSN agian
snakepit-Ron: thinking is dangerous
Rin-n-Rich: If you guys want to play Spy Hunter and send in a screen shot with a high score, you can do it...
Guy B.: Murray, why don't you come over here for us to look into why your system is crashing on you.
snakepit-Ron: :) Saturday nights at ADAMCcon --- something doesn't work
Guy B.: The emulator does have an option to take a snapshot of your screen.
Pamela: dy togue id goig dumb
Rin-n-Rich: Use the Coleco emulator on the Mac...when you get to the end of the game and want to save the score, type Apple-Shift-3 keys all at once.
Murray: Since I'm back on I think I'll let if run...crossed fingers
Harvie: I think when he said "MSN" he said it all
Rin-n-Rich: You will hear a "crunch" sound effect, and it will create a file called Picture 1 (or some other number).
Daniel Bienvenu: I hear about a new coleco emulator for Mac, I think it's name is Murrat
Rin-n-Rich: If you get such a file, I can tell you how to upload it to where I can get it.
snakepit-Ron: did ya get a projector thingie goin Bob?
Murray: That's so true, Harvie
Rin-n-Rich: It is not very good, Daniel, even though it is native OS X. <D>

snakepit-Ron: yes..... Murray, would that it could happen here
Rin-n-Rich: 2 new bruises ick <D>
Pamela: sounds like me Christina -I'm currently covered in them. I keep running into things : (
Murray: I said I didn't know who Judy was and your husband told me...the brain's cells are ossifying I'm afraid
Christina: I thought that it was just the dispersment of the big one , but they're not
Christina: yeah with me I just get mowed over by girls 5 times my size
snakepit-Ron: ossifying - is that what it's called
Guy B.: Christina, how tall are you?
Pamela: I can't claim that unfortunately - I'm just klutzy
snakepit-Ron: been ossifying for a while - me
Christina: that is turning into bone
Judy: there is one person in the pool, just heard her jump in
snakepit-Ron: ergo - bonehead
Christina: I'm about 5'5
Pamela: I thought that was calcifying
snakepit-Ron: 55 Christina, just about ready to retire eh?
snakepit-Ron: I was 55 5 years ago
Murray: I think it's the least objectional and gives the impression the person saying it is still on the ball(ego booster you know!) Ron???
snakepit-Ron: good thought Murray
Pamela: all gone (sniff) : (
snakepit-Ron: I have "senior's moments"
Judy: it has been a long day Murray
Pamela: So Murray, what have you been doing with yourself? The last I heard, you were headed for South America

Murray: Now you know what it's like...
Harvie: You are the bouncer Ron
Rich-drags-Rin: Apologies from the management, I presume.
Dale/AC16: Well, my first presentation (mentioned as "Adam Secrets" was just ...
snakepit-Ron: dirty job, but I suppose somebody has to do it
Dale/AC16: done adlibed, with no prepared outline.
Roberto: AND you are glad to do it eh??????
Pamela: by the way Erin, your cat needs a manicure
Dale/AC16: But I've made it in your presentation as far as...
Rich-drags-Rin: I want a blackboard!!! <DR. D>
Rich-drags-Rin: I'm not doing it
Dale/AC16: About to get everyone to implement init_graphics()
Pamela: I have the holes in my leg to prove it
Murray: Things are running smooth here too Jydy
snakepit-Ron: you mean a <board of colour> Dr D. ??
Pamela: a chalkboard!
Judy: but you all have been dumped
Dale/AC16: Ron, I loved your presentation.
Christina: BOOOOOOOO, Joke good
Rich-drags-Rin: I have to finish about 20 more slides for my PowerPoint presentation tomorrow afternoon (thank goodness it's then)
Dale/AC16: A good demo.l
Murray: Sorry!!! This teacher can't spell.
Rich-drags-Rin: Yes Ron.
Christina: that was mum's line
Dale/AC16: But I still wish you were here.
snakepit-Ron: tk you sir
Rich-drags-Rin: There are no manual erasable display media here :-)
Pamela: LOL
Judy: just blame it on the fingers. Murray
Pamela: or better yet, blame it on the keyboard. That's what Dad does : )
Rich-drags-Rin: Keyboards only display what the fingers typo.
Pamela: to hear him tell it, they keep moving the keys around on him
Rich-drags-Rin: Voice-to-text recognition, then.
Daniel Bienvenu: ok, I'm lost. you said that you programmed from scratch after the presentation or during the presentation?
DougS: we have lots of pushpins and the guy that uses them is hiding in the snakepit.
Judy: I just can
Rich-drags-Rin: <Meeka sneezes>
Judy: 't spell
Pamela: bless you
Pamela: I repeat . . . : )
Judy: she has done a lot of that sneezing
Meeka: ya, my poor nose
snakepit-Ron: me too Dale
Guy B.: Ron, I must admit that was a very good video presentation you did.
Dale/AC16: Daniel, I like to do some interactive, mixed with some theory.
Pamela: someone is setting off fireworks in the distance
snakepit-Ron: Mom just got up from a nap she says to say HI
Pamela: pop, pop, pop
Dale/AC16: We spent some time doing the ball in ICVGM 3
Roberto: for ADAMCON !^ ?????????
Pamela: Hi, Mum
snakepit-Ron: having a bad day
Judy: tell her hi, from me
Pamela: our best wishes to her, Ron

Dale/AC16: Then loaded in the charset.dat and exported the full charset file.
Judy: and hope she feels better
Murray: The video presentation was indeed good kudos all around Ron
Daniel Bienvenu: wow! and you all were able to do that?
Dale/AC16: Now we are coding up the example main from slide number ... [looking for the slide number]
snakepit-Ron: tks all
Roberto: only problem ron.......why didn't you do it on a ADAM ??????
Daniel Bienvenu: You are now testing the result of the init_graphics function, right?
snakepit-Ron: It could have been done on the ADAM but no voice
Daniel Bienvenu: the main function with a little put_char in it?
Dale/AC16: Please say a hearty hello to her for me Ron.
Roberto: thas ok, we don't have speakers hooked up on ADAM with the projector anyway
Christina: (Set to music) Now it's time to say good-byr to all our company.... bye guys, I have to go, I'm really tired. But have no fear my mum is here!!!

Pamela: WB, Joan
Judy: welcome back Joan
Pamela: brr - I'm going to get a sweater
Daniel Bienvenu: yes, welcome back, Joan!
snakepit-Ron: Hi Joan
Judy: a sweater!!!!!
the Joan-inator: the name was Christina's idea
Daniel Bienvenu: I saw most of the pictures from the site
the Joan-inator: I don't think I have much in common with Ah-nold
Daniel Bienvenu: and I saw a gamepack#2 cartridge twice in the pictures. ;-)
Judy: because you are sending all to bed?
Dale/AC16: Slide number 20.
Dale/AC16: We started a little late.
Guy B.: Seems everyone but me, is on the wireless. I'm the only one using a ethernet card and cable. What do you expect when this notebook has Win95. I might look into upgrading to Win98 later.
Pamela: yes a sweater, it's only about 68 in here
the Joan-inator: I sent the youngest ones. Christina signed off herself
Dale/AC16: But I wanted to reinforce the foundation from last time.
snakepit-Ron: enjoying the pictures Dale.
Murray: My system hicupped...signing off...goodnight all
Guy B.: Not again Murray.
Rich-drags-Rin: Joan-inator, you are channelling Ahnuld now?
Judy: I am on a cord,Guy
Pamela: night Murray
Dale/AC16: So we'll have to skip forward a couple of times tomorrow, I think in order to get it done in 2 hours.
Guy B.: Ok, now I don't feel bad.
Rich-drags-Rin: Bye Murray.
snakepit-Ron: Night Murray - stay in touch
Guy B.: Bye Murray.
Murray left chat session
Judy: night Murray
Rich-drags-Rin: Have the girls been bad to need Terminating?
the Joan-inator: I'm not sure what Elanor is doing. Probably doing origami while listening to They Might be Giants
Daniel Bienvenu: @Dale: I understand. 80+ slides was too much anyway
Harvie: Goodnight Murray
Guy B.: Well my beloved Cubs winning streak got snapped at 5. Lost tonight.
the Joan-inator: They have been fine except Gretchen fighting about homework
snakepit-Ron: 5 eh?
Daniel Bienvenu: @Dale: Well, I think I wanted to make you run before walk with my coleco game programming presentation.
Guy B.: I got to see how they are doing in the wildcard race.
Pamela: is it that time of year already? Seems like the season just got started
Judy: Bob the chirp is gone
Guy B.: National League it's a three way between the Cubs, San Francisco and Houston.
Roberto: good, I forgot about it. It was still there @ noon and made a mental note to REMEMBER to check it later
snakepit-Ron: I don't follow minor league ball
Daniel Bienvenu: @Dale: Did my last email with some more comments helps?
Dale/AC16: Daniel, I checked your notes in the morning, and most of them are for stuff we'll do tomorrow.
the Joan-inator: I'm an American League fan
Rich-drags-Rin: Elanor is always listening to TMBG and doing origami :-)\
Pamela: I've given up - the Jays are never going to win again
the Joan-inator: That's why it was a good guess
Guy B.: You mean Major League Ron. Minor League doesn't get that much publicity.
Daniel Bienvenu: telepathie? I think we talked about the same thing at the same time.
snakepit-Ron: :)
Dale/AC16: Daniel, I say it, but didn't read the most recent one yet.
snakepit-Ron: Closest to me is the Vancouver Canadians - tripple A
Dale/AC16: Before bed though.
Pamela: are you going to sleep tonite Dale?
Meeka: hey Pam, did you get my e-mail this morning?
Dale/AC16: Ron, I'm glad someone likes them. I worked hard to do a new look, which is why it took me until Friday morning to post Thuresday's pics.
Pamela: I did - just picked it up before coming onto chat - thanks : )
Rich-drags-Rin: What did you gals have for supper tonight, Joan?
snakepit-Ron: makes me feel like I'm there Dale
Pamela: I haven't looked at any pictures yet
Pamela: I'm going to go there in the morning when I can do it on Lindsay's computer (on high speed)
snakepit-Ron: Have the Stone's been participating?
Rich-drags-Rin: We aren't gloating too much, Pam.
Pamela: but man, do I miss being there
Meeka: ok :)
Meeka: ya, we miss you too
Rich-drags-Rin: Next year will be in your backyard.
snakepit-Ron: right on Pamela
Rich-drags-Rin: I have a zillion photos too (about 200 so far) that I will post.
Judy: they have been around, have kept them going and going
Pamela: speaking of which - Dale, do you want some help with next year's con planning?
Dale/AC16: Jean is right into most of the sessions, but Jack says that we're talking a different language.
Judy: daughter was looking for them one night
Rich-drags-Rin: Some silly ones...I wanted to make sure there was proof I'd been here (not just behind the camera), so I made some "creative" shots at a few points.
Dale/AC16: Pam, I'll never deny help.
Judy: sounded a little concerned
snakepit-Ron: but they're both there
Dale/AC16: The 'con gets less complex to put on all the time though.
Judy: they go home nights
Pamela: i've discovered that since I planned a wedding, I can do anything : ). If you want some help, just let me know what you need.
snakepit-Ron: yes, I suppose they would
snakepit-Ron: Still remember Jean's line at ADAMCOn 4
Rich-drags-Rin: ADAMcon under a tent outside, I like that idea.
Judy: more of a reunion
snakepit-Ron: It's hard to soar with the eagles, when you've been whooping it up with the owls all night
Rich-drags-Rin: Erin says you have enough back yard for it.
Rich-drags-Rin: Or stuck with turkeys like me :-) <runs>
snakepit-Ron: soar in the daytime with the eagles, that is
Meeka: you need to get fast internet before then though Pam
Pamela: gobble, gobble, gobble : )
Judy: we get by on less, Meeka
Rich-drags-Rin: Elanor doesn't like turkeys :-) <private family joke>
Pamela: why Meeka?
Guy B.: I've taken over 50 (not counting some of family and my dog) so far. I bought a 64mb card and boy, I can take more.
Meeka: cuz dial up sux, It is sooooooooooooooooo slow
snakepit-Ron: ya got that right Meeka
Pamela: can't say I disagree with that
Pamela: however, first I have to be able to afford it and right now that's not an option
Meeka: when your used to DSL at home it is even slower!!!
Roberto: how's the job going Pam ????
Dale/AC16: Ron, I've been traveling to Vancouver about once a month lately.
Judy: sometimes you have to come down a little, Meeka
Guy B.: I love my DSL. But, for the first time since I got it. Wednesday, I had to use the dialup. It was down that day.
Pamela: it's going well Bob - they had me reconciling a bank account on Friday
Harvie: Tell Somerville to supply it Pam
Pamela: oh, sure Harvie -alla time
Roberto: and DID you get some cash for yourself???????
Meeka: I am adjusting, but I aint liking it :P
Pamela: unfortunately, no, Bob
Dale/AC16: I have tried to hook up with Jeff, but I'm more a spontanious type, and he seems to need to plan farther ahead.
Pamela: was looking at cheques for $500K and wondering why no one ever writes ones like that to me
snakepit-Ron: Good stuff Dale. We'll have to get together one time
Judy: that would be nice, Pam
Pamela: wouldn't it just??? Would solve all my money woes and then some
Dale/AC16: Even my son Jeffrey has been with me on two trips to Vancouver.
Dale/AC16: (Feb and June)
the Joan-inator: Anybody still ther?
Judy: you could even spread it around a bit
snakepit-Ron: yeah.... he's got a girlfriend now. Spends most of his time travelling bewteen South Van and North Van
Pamela: however, since the lottery isn't cooperating, and the other option isn't an option, I'll have to fumble along
snakepit-Ron: one of these days tthey'll have to move in together, and save a bundle in travel
Pamela: I must say, working 10 minutes from home sure saves on the gas
Dale/AC16: Hey Harvie, any interest in attending AC next year, in TO area?
Guy B.: And look how much money you are saving too.
Judy: at least you will not have far to travel next year so no excuses
Pamela: well, just by turning in my Metropass, I've saved over $1000 a year
Judy: we are expecting to see you there
the Joan-inator: for some reason this froze for a while on my end. Then about 20 messages came up at once
Harvie: Fer sure
Rich-drags-Rin: It does that sometimes, Joan.
Guy B.: Pam, I'm looking forward to seeing you next year.
Pamela: it happens like that sometimes, Joan
the Joan-inator: I thought I did something wrong
Judy: is getting noisy out side
Pamela: oh, I'll be at next year's if it's here - Russell will be a maybe, depending on his schedule
Dale/AC16: <grin> That's was his excuse the last two times I called him ,Ron.
Judy: maybe I will have to close the door
snakepit-Ron: Are they booting you guys out of the meeting room at 11pm?
Dale/AC16: Harvie, we were trying to figure out if you were at AC12.
Judy: no they don
Dale/AC16: What one were you at last?
snakepit-Ron: good
Roberto: NOPE, it si OURS till eternity
Daniel Bienvenu: @Dale: I suggest to add my presentations (this year and last year) somewhere in the adamcon web site. what do you think?
Harvie: 007 was the only one Dale
snakepit-Ron: must admit, I found that rather embarrasing last year
Pamela: what, Ron?
snakepit-Ron: being asked to shut down at 11pm
snakepit-Ron: our hotel nazi was most efficient
Dale/AC16: Daniel, it is high on my todo list.
moved to room Meeting Place

Dale/AC16: Danel, I demoed the cart you gave me.
HLM: I gotta surf the web sight and see what I am missing
Dale/AC16: But there seems to be a bug in Isola.
Daniel Bienvenu: Yes, I saw the gamepack#2 cartridge in two pictures
Rich-drags-Rin: Maybe I should sit between them :-)
Guy B.: Rin has a way with me.

Harvie: She's had her way with you ???
Guy B.: That's a joke Son.
Rich-drags-Rin: No, it's Dale's boy who is the real swinger...
Roberto: Meeka is coming UP Judy.......suitcase for clothes???????
Rich-drags-Rin: He asked an older women to join him in the Jaccuzi today :-)
Daniel Bienvenu: I can send you a rom file by email
HLM: Dale how is your little one doing must be about 2 years old now
Guy B.: Not so fast there.
Judy: yes, I should get one
Judy: brb
Rich-drags-Rin: We are a regular soap opera here at ADAMcon 16.
Pamela: I miss Jeffrey too
Dale/AC16: Herman, he 2 1/2.
Rich-drags-Rin: Actually...Dale, Jill, Jeffrey, and Rin stopped by my room to get me, and Jeffrey went into the Jacuzzi tub and asked Rin to come in after him.
Dale/AC16: Walking talking and inviting girls into the Jaccuzzi.
Pamela: and Erin, I want you to know I miss having you sitting with me : )
HLM: very good
Rich-drags-Rin: My comment was too good to pass up :-)
Rich-drags-Rin: <violins>
snakepit-Ron: (snicker)
HLM: all for his dad ???? :)
snakepit-Ron: the youngest ADAmite - a mover and shaker
Rich-drags-Rin: There was no water in the tub at the time, he just wanted to climb in and look out the plate-glass window into the rest of the room.
Dale/AC16: Jeffrey likes to play peekaboo by hiding in the closet or bathtub.
HLM: So is Doug knee deep in coimpuiter repairs Bob
Guy B.: He's an adventurer.
Rich-drags-Rin: you'll have me Wednesday Pam :-)
Daniel Bienvenu: @Dale: I'm sending now Gamepack#2 rom version august 3
Dale/AC16: k
DougS: not many, you left yours home herman.
Rich-drags-Rin: There have been no hardware failures this year AFAIK Herman.
HLM: yea that is the good years Dale, You can not relive them and they are priceless...
Rich-drags-Rin: that's because there is only one ADAM here :-)
Pamela: and only a few pushpins
Rich-drags-Rin: ??
HLM: No Comments their will be one close by me where ever I go
Dale/AC16: I'm an aligator clip person.
Dale/AC16: No pushpins here.
Pamela: chewing gum? Baling wire?
Dale/AC16: Maybe Ron can bring some next year.
Rich-drags-Rin: Anti-gravity paint works for me.
HLM: Ron is the king of push pins and they work
the Joan-inator: I have plenty of stright pins
Rich-drags-Rin: Several pincushions full.
Judy: we now have a suitcase
the Joan-inator: And I'm using them now
Pamela: whatch making, Joan?
Dale/AC16: This AdamCon seemed to involve a lot of shopping.
Rich-drags-Rin: What are you doing with them? Voodoo :-)
the Joan-inator: Sewing tiger ears
Pamela: Shopping is good!
Dale/AC16: Jill is thinking of getting another suit case to take it all home.
Judy: your the only one who brings stuff that needs repair work herman
Pamela: Way to go Jillian!
Dale/AC16: And that doesn't include all of the things we didn't buy because it is too hard to ship.
Rich-drags-Rin: Tiger ears, how many sets?
HLM: my wife wouold LOVE THAT
Rich-drags-Rin: So far, I have bought only food.
Rich-drags-Rin: I am not much of a shopper.
the Joan-inator: enought tiger ears for tiger head ornaments for the soccer team
Guy B.: And I bought a t-shirt from Juarez. The only thing I bought so far.
Rich-drags-Rin: Rin was seduced by the cowboy boots, however?
HLM: I love to collect T shirts and hats so I would of atleast got them
Pamela: bought any tickets yet Erin?
Daniel Bienvenu: @Dale: I think I need help to continue the libraries update. To improve the programming experience, I must find why some weird bug still there. Someone suggest a conflict with video updates and the "read status flag register" inside the nmi and delay function.
Rich-drags-Rin: not yet
Rich-drags-Rin: Bobs will give me heck on Sunday...don't worry :-)
Dale/AC16: Daniel, you were talking about that, but I haven't seen much lately with my projects.
Roberto: BUT Pam, they are going like hotcakes.........sales are thru the roof, so you better put in some more cash for tickets......
Pamela: tell Jean I lust after her afghan
Dale/AC16: In July I had a lot of problems as you know.
Daniel Bienvenu: well, it's not true. remember the weird bug with Santa's Gift Run
Rich-drags-Rin: Nobody will want it after that, Pam...ewwww....
Rich-drags-Rin: No laundromats here.
Daniel Bienvenu: telepathie again?
Pamela: get yer mind outta the gutter!
Guy B.: You should see this one Pam. You would want to keep it yourself.
Dale/AC16: The Santa's Gif problems were in July.
Pamela: I have seen a picture Guy and I want it
Rich-drags-Rin: Get the afghan outta yours :-)
HLM: no that battle Meeka and Ron battled at the last Con I was at and Ron won I think
Pamela: Erin is buying tickets for me
Rich-drags-Rin: Are you sure?
Guy B.: I have no doubt, that she will NOT let you down.
Daniel Bienvenu: anyway, this weird bug appear in other projects like a character randomly printed on screen.
Rich-drags-Rin: he's trying to get me in trouble
Rich-drags-Rin: <smucks Rich's arm>
Rich-drags-Rin: ow
Roberto: Rin says ....."don't tell Pammie, but I am using HER money to buy tickets for me ......."
Dale/AC16: I've tuned a good version, and I will post it on my web site with a new ROM with the animation fixed.
Guy B.: That's got to hurt.
Rich-drags-Rin: hehehe, now he's pouting...someone get the camera :-)
HLM: no comments
Pamela: Guy, smack Rich - and while you're at it, smack Bob too
Dale/AC16: Daniel, character's randomly printing on the screen, I've seen.
snakepit-Ron: no need for any of you to buy tickets
(Guy B. slaps Rich-drags-Rin playfully)
Pamela: LOL
Dale/AC16: But every time you send me a library, it seems you send me a new version.
Pamela: wow, violence-by-proxy - ya gotta love it
Rich-drags-Rin: now we're being hit by Guy
Roberto: and this would be WHY ron ???????
Guy B.: He's pouting now.
Rich-drags-Rin: It's the video game generation that did it.
Roberto changed username to BobS
Dale/AC16: I always thought that the wierd characters were due to blown stack.
the Joan-inator: An orchectra...sax and violins
Rich-drags-Rin: That is true, Dale; I am a weird character and my stack is definitely blown.
Dale/AC16: Usually it is debug code that triggers it for me. When I disable the debug code, it startis working again.
snakepit-Ron: hmmmm on further reflection, I better not make any smarta** remarks about winning tickets
Dale/AC16: But maybe it is the timing conflict you talked about.
Pamela: you're not eligible Ron - you have one already!
Rich-drags-Rin: We will mail you the winning afghan as a ball of yarn, Ron.
snakepit-Ron: I know... but a fella has to try ya know
Guy B.: That's right. Others get to have a crack at this years.
Daniel Bienvenu: it looks like because we want to do too much things between two refresh, the project is going crazy
Rich-drags-Rin: I guess me too, I have one from one of the conventions, can't remember which one.
BobS: hey Pamm, Ron is in for $ what will it be for you ????
Pamela: I just love that purple - it would look soooo nice at the end of my bed, on the green comforter
Guy B.: Don't fall for it Pam.
Rich-drags-Rin: It's the higher/lower game on Price Is Right...
Pamela: whatever $20 Canadian will get me ( or whatever of mine that Erin hasn't spent yet)
BobS: and BEHIND DOOR # 3 ??????? Pammie !!!!!!!!!!!1
Rich-drags-Rin: That is what Photoshop is good for, Pam <runs>
Dale/AC16: Well, Daniel, the traditional fix to that is to only do screen updates during the nmi, and do all the calculations outside.
Daniel Bienvenu: but someone here suggest to alway read the video status register after the video update to "reset" the vdp
BobS: she done SPENT it all on boots today
Dale/AC16: It is a particular coding style.
Pamela: you better run!
Guy B.: Erin, you better not let her down or do you have other things in mind??????
HLM: I need it to keep my babies warm... so I will fax the winning dollar bill to the convention :)
Rich-drags-Rin: Run run run just as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Dr.D. Man!
Daniel Bienvenu: by using delay and nmi, it's exactly what we do
snakepit-Ron: boots were made for walkin'
Rich-drags-Rin: now I have to buy a matching hat guy
BobS: you already owe GMK for shirts Herman, jsut call him and tell him to buy some tickets too
Rich-drags-Rin: Fringed leather vest and bullwhip, too.
(Guy B. snickers evilly)
Rich-drags-Rin: don't forget the chaps
Pamela: I thought you already had the whip?
the Joan-inator: Indiana Jones or Devo?
Rich-drags-Rin: yes, but that wasn't common knowledge
snakepit-Ron: So did anyone find Rosie's Cantina?
Rich-drags-Rin: Devo is good.
Pamela: Sorry, that's Graeme, isn't it?
HLM: Meeka will just toss mine out the window so she can win and Pam will help her
Rich-drags-Rin: I think it was near the Mos Eisley Spaceport, Ron.
Harvie: I must call it a night, have fun in El Paso... no matter where you are
Daniel Bienvenu: delay use it (read vdp register) if the nmi interrupts is disabled, and the nmi do it (and it's the first thing it did)
Rich-drags-Rin: good night Harvie
snakepit-Ron: that's Roswell
Dale/AC16: You notice in gift run, I was doing all my calculations, then delay then drawing the screen.
Guy B.: Bye Harvie, we'll see you on Wednesday.
BobS: ok Harvie, see you next Wed
Rich-drags-Rin: So long, Harvie <Dr.D.>
Pamela: Goodnite Harvie, see you Wednesday
Harvie left chat session
Dale/AC16: That should minimize the chances of an overlaping screen update and nmi.
Dale/AC16: Goodnight Harvie.
Rich-drags-Rin: How high is the grass at home, Joan? I imagine it is pretty tall by now...
Dale/AC16: I'll email you later.
Rich-drags-Rin: Since I didn't get the lawn mowed before I left.
Daniel Bienvenu: yes, but it looks like weird bugs still there... whatever I try.
the Joan-inator: I didn't really notice. Not too bad
HLM: mine needs cutting and I am here and done it a week ago
snakepit-Ron: brb
Pamela: was at Mom and Dad's today - theirs is fine
Rich-drags-Rin: Has it been rainy?
the Joan-inator: ergghh..the people next door are having a reaally loud argument
BobS: when mumsy and dadsy comin' home Pam ?????
HLM: not too bad rich
Rich-drags-Rin: uh-oh
the Joan-inator: It rained yesterday. Sunny today
BobS: jjktooktrailer out for how much time?
Dale/AC16: Well, I'll have to try to find some time for a special test case, and then maybe I can narrow it down. You have to read that VDP register to clear the NMI, and allow it to send another one.
Pamela: they'll be home Wednesday afternoon Bob - Dad has an appt with the electrocardiologist on Thursday at 10:00 am. Then they're heading out again
Daniel Bienvenu: I notice a possible problem with at least two of my functions in getput1 library. But I need someone to help me finishing the update to improve it.
Pamela: just enough time to pick the garden and do the laundry : )
Dale/AC16: Jill starts school Monday so she has to leave the 'Con early.
Pamela: is she flying out tomorrow Dale?
Daniel Bienvenu: There are more coleco programmers now. Many are interrested in programming in C because it looks more simple.
Dale/AC16: Well, Daniel, I've been using them to work on various projects, so maybe I'll be able to get into it.
Daniel Bienvenu: Before releasing the new getput version with new features like the "double buffering effect" used in gift run, etc...
Guy B.: I'm surprised since Coleco abandoned the Adam and Colecovision. There is an interest again in classic videogame systems and now new games for these systems. I'm glad there are people like Daniel, who want to bring these back.
Daniel Bienvenu: I have too many tests to do.
Daniel Bienvenu: but this weird bug, never looks the same but is visible mostly when running on cartridge. that makes me crazy
Dale/AC16: Do you have a small example that you can email me;.
Dale/AC16: Then I can try and trace through the code and try to spot the race condition.
Daniel Bienvenu: well, the gamepack#2 cartridge you have, is an example of weird bug visible when the rom is into the cartridge
snakepit-Ron: de retour
Pamela: all is well Ron?
Dale/AC16: The flickery sprites?
snakepit-Ron: had to do Mom's ear drops
Dale/AC16: Do you see those too?
snakepit-Ron: in addition to everything else, she has an ear infection
Pamela: oh dear
Daniel Bienvenu: I fixed it by rewriting the update sprites part, but it only reduce the time to update sprites, it doesn't do more than that.
the Joan-inator: another tiger ear done
Dale/AC16: Also we have two feature requests for your tools.
Pamela: I gather these are for the soccer team Joan?
snakepit-Ron: sounds like Tiger could use some ears
snakepit-Ron: or something
Daniel Bienvenu: the flickery sprites? I had this bug in Miss Space Fury. one week before the deadline I never know this bug was there until someone show me a video-clip of my game running on a real coelco.
Dale/AC16: ICVGM doesn't highlight which color square will change when you click on the pallete color to set it to.
Daniel Bienvenu: ICVGM v3 was done quickly
BobS left chat session
Dale/AC16: It seems to work well though.
Daniel Bienvenu: it's ICVGM v2 but with another character editor part
Dale/AC16: And in ICVGM, I'd like an easy way to prepare multiple name tables.
the Joan-inator: Yeah, the high school nickname is the Tigers
Daniel Bienvenu: multiple screens?
snakepit-Ron: aha....
Daniel Bienvenu: I suppose it could be done
Dale/AC16: v2 doesn't give you any feedback about what a click on the colour palette will change either.
the Joan-inator: I had to turn on some music to drown out the fight next doo
Rich-drags-Rin: Chat is winding down? Bob just left.
Dale/AC16: There is a manual way to do multiple name tables of course.
Judy: I am back Meeka just went off to bed
Rich-drags-Rin: What is it about, Joan?
Dale/AC16: But I usually want one char set, and a few prepared backgrounds.
snakepit-Ron: another long day in the am awaaits
Pamela: where did Bob go?
Dale/AC16: Bob seems to have gone to bed.
the Joan-inator: I don't know. It's muffled, but I can hear a few "I told you girl"s
Judy: he is probably on his way up here
DougS: bob went to his room and will join chat on judy's pc.
Guy B.: Bob is heading back Judy
Daniel Bienvenu: @Dale: I can program on icvgm v3 during next week. but I'm wondering more about updating and improving my getput library
snakepit-Ron: we're all gettin older ya know - no more long periods of sleep deprivation
Daniel Bienvenu: all this
Judy: speak for yourself, Ron
Daniel Bienvenu: all the asm coding to read and understand.
DougS: not the way jack and jean have been running us ragged :) eating at their schedule is different.
snakepit-Ron: :)
HLM: actually the older I get I THINK the LESS I sleep
Rich-drags-Rin: It's been true for me, Herman, but it's because I've had more to do.
Judy: he just arrived
the Joan-inator: What's sleep?
snakepit-Ron: keeps ya movin eh Doug?
Daniel Bienvenu: Ho! about the asm coding. What is the utility of "LD A,I" and "LD A,R" ?
Pamela: I'm with Joan
Dale/AC16: Daniel, don't worry too much about ICVGM. The new double buffered version of getput is the most improtant.
Rich-drags-Rin: The 2nd one is a cheap way to get a somewhat random number.
DougS: lunch at 11am, supper at 4pm ron.
Pamela: the sugar high from my ice cream is wearing off
Rich-drags-Rin: The first, you need for some kinds of interrupt handling.
Dale/AC16: LD A,R gives you a pseudo random number.,
Rich-drags-Rin: I am fuzzy on the details, I have to look at my Z80 manual for LD A,I.
snakepit-Ron: a hour offset
Dale/AC16: It is the value of the refresh register.
moved to room Meeting Place
Daniel Bienvenu: the refresh register?
changed username to Pamela
Guy B.: We have twins.
Rich-drags-Rin: it actually is the current memory refresh register auto-increments, so calling it too often leads to very non-random numbers.
Dale/AC16: LD A,I is not used on the Adam. It is used for one of the IM vector modes, I think.
Pamela: darn it, I just got dumped
Daniel Bienvenu: do you think it can be used to improve the getput library to avoid problems?
HLM: That is more so because of Jack;s diabeties (?) I would guess they approached GK and I one year with about the same request
Pamela changed username to Pamela again
HLM: even paid for a early lunch a few times
Pamela again: there, now you know which one to delete
snakepit-Ron: no wonder I'm slowing up - have Ie running twice
Guy B. requested to ban Pamela
Pamela again confirmed ban
Dale/AC16 confirmed ban
Pamela again: am I still here?
DougS confirmed ban
Pamela again: apparently
Daniel Bienvenu: yes Pam!
Guy B.: Ok, Pam, You're one again.
Dale/AC16: The refresh register is the register that hits every row of addresses in RAM to keep the memory values alive.
Rich-drags-Rin confirmed ban
snakepit-Ron confirmed ban
Dale/AC16: (the high 8 bits of the 16 bit address register)
Rich-drags-Rin: E pamela unum.
Pamela again: Dale, here's one for you - just before I got dumped, I started updating at the top of my chat - this has been happening a lot recently
Rich-drags-Rin: and 8 bits are in a byte?
Dale/AC16: As long as the LD A,R calls are timing wise "co-prime" with the 256 cycles, it will be reasonablly random.
Rich-drags-Rin: And half a byte is a nibble.
snakepit-Ron: ok..... yes, that'll do it
Rich-drags-Rin: And Rin just ate my candy bar!
Rich-drags-Rin: you lie!!
Dale/AC16: Pam, it is a maximum buffer size for the history in the Java implementation of IE, as I understand it.
Pamela again: I warned you about American chocolate, Rin
Rich-drags-Rin: it was only half
Guy B.: Well, looks like we have a case of deniel.
Daniel Bienvenu: I have another suggestion here. Using a byte in RAM as a flag. this flag can be set to say to the nmi to do nothing before we are updating the video memory.
snakepit-Ron: no fighting over the chocolate please
Rich-drags-Rin: Da Nile is in Egypt, right?
Pamela again: oh okay. It never used to do that though
Rich-drags-Rin: wookie sounds
Guy B.: Not that Dr D.
Daniel Bienvenu: sounds too complex to me
Pamela again: Russell just got home
Rich-drags-Rin: Let the Wookie win.
Rich-drags-Rin: Hi Russell <R&R>
snakepit-Ron: I'm powerless over choccolate
Daniel Bienvenu: but probably a good solution for newbies who don't have enough experience with the interrupts and coelco programming
Pamela again: he says 'hello"
Judy: hi, Russell
Guy B.: Don't ask me about chocolate. My girlfriend gave me some and it's sitting in my fridge at home. At least it won't melt.
snakepit-Ron: Hi Russel
the Joan-inator: Anyo hasayo!
Rich-drags-Rin: ??
the Joan-inator: Hello in KOrean
HLM: hi Russel
DougS left chat session
Pamela again: He says hi back to everyone but it's dinnertime
Pamela again: He just waved sweet and sour chicken balls under my nose
snakepit-Ron: at midnight?
Daniel Bienvenu: @Dale: Remark: if you try to compile the sample#1 with a previous version of my getput library, it doesn't work because the compile is unable to find the calc_offset function. So it's why I added a new version with the source code I sent to you for the presentation.
Pamela again: well yes, when your shift runs from 12P to 12A
HLM: food is good anytime
Judy: you eat dinner at this time of the night, Pam?
snakepit-Ron: ya got that right Herman
Rich-drags-Rin: I AGREE HERMAN
Pamela again: no, Russell's eating dinner
snakepit-Ron: if it wasn't for food, I wouldn't be half the man I am
Pamela again: I ate before I got online
Judy: I seeee
the Joan-inator: Well, it sounds like the fight next door is done
Rich-drags-Rin: What was it about?
Pamela again: did you ever discover the reason for the fight Joan?
snakepit-Ron: a domestic altercation?
Daniel Bienvenu: err... I didn't sent to you a new getput version with source code. I mean, in the zip file, there is a new getput1 library version (no source code) with the smash source code.
HLM: must be afull moon Joan, Cops just hauled a few folks away a few doors from me
Rich-drags-Rin: hehe
Daniel Bienvenu: to fix the problem I added the calc_offset function with the get and put char file.
Pamela again: unfortunately, we can't use that excuse Herman - it's not till sometime next week
Pamela again: I tried to use it yesterday - everyone at work was nuts
the Joan-inator: I don't know. It sounded like their teenager did something and the parents were arguing with her and each other
the Joan-inator: I decided to listen to music instead
Dale/AC16: Daniel, yes, you send me a new version of getput with every piece of code ;-)
Pamela again: well, that explains it
Rich-drags-Rin: TMBG I presume
Dale/AC16: I just have trouble keeping track of which version is the best one. :-)
HLM: when I got hom it was loud music down that way so thair was probably a party
the Joan-inator: That's what Elanor had in the computer ...Istanbul, not Constantople
Daniel Bienvenu: Sorry for that but my library is in work in progress
snakepit-Ron: you mean I can't go back to Constantinople?
Dale/AC16: I know. It wouldn't get better if it didn't change.
Rich-drags-Rin: I prefer Byzantium.
Daniel Bienvenu: because I decided to erase all the disable_nmi and enable_nmi from all my functions to let the programmer have the control of its program. I didn't realize that it was a big challenge.
Pamela again: oh dear, I'm hearing Johnny Cash in my head again
the Joan-inator: Wouln't scan right for the song
Rich-drags-Rin: Joan, Dale says TMBG have broken up.
snakepit-Ron: I have this Internet station called, "Stuck in the '50s:"
snakepit-Ron: pllays that kind of stuff
Rich-drags-Rin: ???
Rich-drags-Rin: Dale says no, it was Moxie Fru"vious he was thinking of.
Rich-drags-Rin: Sorry for the heart failure.
the Joan-inator: Nope, I got an message from Flansburgh yesterday on the Team TMBG stuff
Rich-drags-Rin: What Johnny Cash is stuck in your head, Pam?
Rich-drags-Rin: <A BOY NAMED SUE>
Pamela again: oh, and Dale? This has been bugging me for two years; you spelled discretion wrong on the website
Dale/AC16: So how does this version (z80-2) compare with the Windows installer version?
Guy B.: How do you do!
snakepit-Ron: Papa sang bass, Mamma sang tenor
Dale/AC16: I thought that that was the version I was going to give out.
Pamela again: "Down in the West Texas town of El Paso" . . .
Rich-drags-Rin: #include <std_spellcheck.h>
the Joan-inator: Brent from church gave me a Moxy Fruvious CD. It was pretty good
Rich-drags-Rin: He didn't sing that song first, Pam.
Pamela again: so who did?
snakepit-Ron: Marty Robbins
Daniel Bienvenu: the version with the installer was made before I saw your gift run project.
Rich-drags-Rin: I can't think of his name...he was tall and thin with a little moustache and slicked-down hair.
HLM: now Ron knows his music
Rich-drags-Rin: Rin called it!
snakepit-Ron: I was just around back then
Daniel Bienvenu: and I didn't had time to update it for the adamcon
Pamela again: thank you Ron
Dale/AC16: Gift Run hanged the world? I never suspected.
Daniel Bienvenu: so I sent to you a folder with the compiler and at least icvgm v3 and cci
Rich-drags-Rin: Have you heard from the Keiths, Joan?
Dale/AC16: Yes, and a treat that is too. I'll definately use ICVGM v3 lots.
Dale/AC16: I'm wondering about sprite editing with ICVGM v3.
the Joan-inator: Brent and Joan may be at the guitar performance at church tomorrow. We'll see.
Daniel Bienvenu: look at the right side of the window. I think you will see a button to edit sprites
Dale/AC16: What does it stand for again (I ColecoVision Game M)
Guy B.: Well folks, I'm going to turn in. For those here at the con, see you tomorrow morning. Judy, I expect Bob will come by again to go to breakfast. I'll see everyone else on Wednesday.
Rich-drags-Rin: Hope they are okay.
Rich-drags-Rin: I think I should be turning in, too.
Pamela again: Gnite Guy
Rich-drags-Rin: Starting to yawn.
Rich-drags-Rin: Still on Cleveland time...
Guy B.: Thanks again for your help Pam. I really appreciate it.
Daniel Bienvenu: The first time I did ICVGM for DOS with QuickBASIC 4.5, I wanted to do a kind of Game Editor or something like that.
Pamela again: any time Guy
Daniel Bienvenu: ICVGM is for Instant ColecoVision Game Maker.
Pamela again: I'm starting to lose it too
snakepit-Ron: Interesting Compiler Versus Groovy Metamorphosis
HLM: nite Guy
Rich-drags-Rin: haha Ron
snakepit-Ron: which means not much to me
Rich-drags-Rin: You better get to bed too, Joan, church tomorrow.
Pamela again: Erin, my schedule is in the living room. What time does your plane land on Monday?
Daniel Bienvenu: I know ICVGM is only a graphic editor but I think I have time to build this kind of tool to make games by clicking with a mouse
Guy B.: Ok, I'm off this notebook and will be shitting down until the morning. Bye.
Guy B. left chat session
Rich-drags-Rin: I Can't View Green Monsters
Rich-drags-Rin: Bye Guy.
the Joan-inator: Yeah...So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Adeiu..
snakepit-Ron: shutting down Guy
Rich-drags-Rin: Bye Joanling
Pamela again: goodnight Joan - great to talk to you
Rich-drags-Rin: Nite to the girls who are still up
Rich-drags-Rin: If any
Daniel Bienvenu: Leaving? bonne nuit alors!
snakepit-Ron: good talking to Joan
the Joan-inator: See you tomorrow night. I love you!
Rich-drags-Rin: Love you too.
Daniel Bienvenu: Sorry to talk too much about coleco programming
the Joan-inator left chat session
HLM: mushy mushy
Rich-drags-Rin: <smirk>
snakepit-Ron: awwww
snakepit-Ron: I think that's cool
Rich-drags-Rin: Not at all, Daniel.
Rich-drags-Rin: That is what the chat is supposed to be about.
Pamela again: Rich, where's Erin?
Rich-drags-Rin: Dale tells me that his brother Neil has just passed all his M.S. thesis stuff!
HLM: thats what conventions are for tech talk prob solving and new ideas
Rich-drags-Rin: She is sitting here nodding off.
Pamela again: okay. Never mind.
Daniel Bienvenu: M.S. thesis?
Rich-drags-Rin: I keep poking her and nothing is moving much.
Rich-drags-Rin: So she is probably vegetated.
Daniel Bienvenu: Master ?
Pamela again: yeah, she goes out like that sometimes.
snakepit-Ron: RIN- WAKE UP
Rich-drags-Rin: I think I come in at 7:55 or something on Monday
Rich-drags-Rin: haven't got a clue to be honest
Pamela again: okay, I'll check.
Rich-drags-Rin: that's why I emailled it :-)
Dale/AC16: Master of Arts actually.
Pamela again: it's out there!
Rich-drags-Rin: Okay, yes M.A>
Rich-drags-Rin: M.A.
Dale/AC16: He started his phd studies last week.
snakepit-Ron: <piled higher and deeper>
HLM: I used that to Dr D ron, thought he was gonna shoot me
Pamela again: Erin, I'll see you on Monday. Rich, talk to you Wednesday.
snakepit-Ron: yeah, better watch my tongue
Rich-drags-Rin: alrighty Pam have a good night
HLM: when he first got his Phd
Rich-drags-Rin: give my love to Schiefer
Pamela again: I will.

HLM left chat session
Dale/AC16: I'm scheming on how to get you to Toronto of the next AC>
Daniel Bienvenu: I probably just did a too big presentation to be done like you want to do it
Dale/AC16: I showed the samples of the stages of developement.
Dale/AC16: It seemed pretty good.
Dale/AC16: It is a question of how to compile the samples.
Dale/AC16: I only had the zip file unzipped for a very little while before I began thew presentation.
Daniel Bienvenu: Me? Toronto? next AC? I think it can be done.
Daniel Bienvenu: I think I'm alone now
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to Dale/AC16
Daniel Bienvenu: hello again Dale!
Dale/AC16: Sorry. Clicked the wrong close button :-)
Daniel Bienvenu: oops :-)
Daniel Bienvenu: Well, I said that I think I should and could be at the next AC
Dale/AC16: So the slow part is getting everyone to type more than 2 or 3 lines of source.
Dale/AC16: I'd love it <big grin>
Dale/AC16: Are you busy the 3rd weekend in July? the second?
Daniel Bienvenu: Yannick, a new coleco programmer, may accept to help me getting there.
Daniel Bienvenu: Actually, I'm looking for a job. So, my time is unpredictable for now
Dale/AC16: So, the thing I need to do is make some files that they can jump into and make small edits to, then compile and try it.
Daniel Bienvenu: Want my help to do that?
Dale/AC16: You talk about that in your slides, but you do intensive typing, skip some important details, then drop into a test phase.
Dale/AC16: Well, I'm not sure.
Daniel Bienvenu: I know... but it's 80+ slides long
Daniel Bienvenu: I think the smallest change is when I said to change the x coordinate from 15 to 6 and another thing to make the paddle run faster than the ball
Daniel Bienvenu: Dale?
Daniel Bienvenu: Dale?
