rich-c: that's OK Daniel, wait till you see what just blew through us on the way to visit you
james: just keep it on that side of the pacific, ok?
rich-c: we even had a tornado warning just to the north of us this afternoon
Guy B.: We had some severe weather on Monday.
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to BobS
Daniel Bienvenu: hello Bob!
BobS: hi kids
rich-c: think it was part of the same system we'er in now, Guy
rich-c: for some reason most of the rain and storms went by Toronto either to the north or south
BobS: most bypassed us too......until last night and we got about 3/4" of it
BobS: slept right on thru a baby
moved to room Meeting Place
rich-c: we were watching deluges wander along maybe 30 miles from us, on the weather radar
james: ah yes.. the proverbial baby.. the only baby in my experience that actually sleeps
changed username to Judy

Guy B.: Hi Bob and Judy
BobS: came in on a stealth storm my man
BobS: anyway Richard, did you get my revised price?????
rich-c: when we went out shopping at noon it was sunny and 28° - now after teh rain it's 18° and dropping
moved to room Meeting Place
BobS: same her humid and hot, then cold and humid
rich-c: yes and it still has me mystified - sounds like it is based on at least four hours labour for a less than half hour job
Judy: the temp is falling here too, but a welcome change
changed username to Ronald
james: we finally just warmed up
rich-c: were you dealing with a ral service writer or just someone who didnt understand the question, so to speak?

changed username to Dr. D.
Guy B.: Hi Ron
rich-c: hello Rich
Ronald: Hi Guy
Dr. D.: hi all
Dr. D.: I am a bit under the weather tonight
Ronald: evening Dr. D.
rich-c: oh? what bit you, Rich?
Judy: Hi, Dr D
Dr. D.: some respiratory bug that started Monday morning
Guy B.: Hi Dr. D.
Dr. D.: It has been so hot...bleh
Ronald: Hot rum, Dr. D. - till you can't see the end of the bed
Guy B.: Weather's great.
Dr. D.: it was 45 C in the car on the way back from Toronto Tuesday -- A/C not working in the car :-(
rich-c: are you sensitive to smog, Rich?
Dr. D.: Your air smelled terrible Richard, even though I know it is blowing up from the US
james: hello dr
Dr. D.: Alternately smelled like vinegar, burning tires, or sewage all the way to Buffalo
james: i thought toronto was self-sufficient for smog
rich-c: yes, well over half our crud originates in the Ohio valley
Ronald: You guys in Toronto got one of those inversions going again?
Dr. D.: Air here in Cleveland today is okay, but it is still too hot
rich-c: but much of it blows over Cleveland to get to us so you should have it worse
Ronald: yuch!
BobS: ok......1-616-662-9090 @ 2000 Chicago Dr SW ...... Jenison, MI or Hudsonville, MI ......not sure which tiny city it belongs to
Judy: it was a little cooler here today, only 85
rich-c: no, but did have a very large wrm air mass - have a cold front passing through now, with suitable fireworks
Dr. D.: In any case, I was in Toronto on short notice this weekend due to unexpected opportunity to talk to an immigration lawyer
Ronald: ah, thank the Good Lord for the cool rainy west coast
Guy B.: Hi Folks, I'm still here, but I'm chatting with a very special girl. But, I'll keep up here.
Dr. D.: Rin and I got some good info.
BobS: and ??????
rich-c: OK Bob got it copied, many thanks - I can cope from here - have a 5¢ per minute phone plan
BobS: tis easier for you to immegrate to canada than for Rin to come to US ?????
Dr. D.: We will get married in Windsor, then I file paperwork to bring her over...but she has to stay in Canada until it is processed, 6-8 months.
Dr. D.: Dissolution final hearing is 11 July.
BobS: for honeymoon purposes, that sucks sir.............
Judy: that sounds like the pits to me
BobS: course you can still visit back and forth
Dr. D.: Assuming we can get suitable documentation in paper form, we are hoping to have the wedding first, at latest second week of August.
Dr. D.: After that is too close to start of classes etc.
BobS: this year ?????
Dr. D.: The sooner the wedding, the sooner the 6-8 month clock can start ticking.
Dr. D.: Yes Bob.
Dr. D.: But it all depends on when the court here actually will generate the paper version of the dissolution--that will be needed in order to get Ontario wedding license.
james: it's too bad there is no mechanism to make it easier for canadians and americans in this situation
Dr. D.: This is the only way to guarantee that Rin will have a green card when she comes over.
Dr. D.: To do it the reverse, her come here and get married, she can't work for 3 years.
rich-c: be interesting to see what would happen if she just applied for a green card on her own ;-)
Dr. D.: And that is unacceptable on all fronts.
james: the relationship is not the same as other countries'
Ronald: sounds like quite a maze
Dr. D.: It would be less hassle were I to emigrate to Canada, but that is impossible for work and family reasons, otherwise I would have considered it.
Guy B.: Has anyone have their payment for the con coming? I have Dale's on the way and me.
rich-c: hope you got an honest immigration lawyer - there is a plague of charlatans around
Dr. D.: It is a maze, Ron, but Rin and I are committed to navigating it.
Ronald: of course
Dr. D.: This guy is best friend of one of the lawyers in Steve Peters' office.
Dr. D.: He is clueful.
rich-c: I have my time consumed with other issues, Guy, but hope to get to the bank to get the money order soon
BobS: governments have this....rather strange way of showing compassion and respect for their own citizens
Ronald: I'll get that off to you tomorrow Guy. Thanks for the reminder. It had slipped what passes for my mind
rich-c: well, there's nothing like treating everyone equally
Dr. D.: I must tell you, Guy, that at this point, I think it unlikely that Rin and I will be able to attend the convention...if we come at all, it would only be for Saturday and Sunday.
Guy B.: Ok, no problem. I'll update my spreadsheet.
rich-c: once Canadians need passports to enter the US, Americans will need them too to go home after a trip out of the country
Dr. D.: Yes, it is stupid poor excuse for looking like there is border security, totally sham.
rich-c: I haven't had time to talk to Amy yet, Guy, about our extra four days - but they should count towards your convention contract
james: not to mention it doesn't really solve anything, since if i recall the terrorists were already in the u.s, legally no less
Ronald: exactly James
Dr. D.: It is a joke, James.
rich-c: well, that's what they get for electing the wrong party
james: twice, no less
james: not that canada can claim any better
BobS: all this security is just to pi$$ off the public, at least it seems that that fact is the only real outcome of it
Ronald: Would it have made any difference?
BobS: no
rich-c: some folks are slow learners - though there are doubts about the first time, still
Daniel Bienvenu: I,m back
BobS: andn then we have William Clinton............
BobS: politics is another entirely different world kids
Daniel Bienvenu: hi judy
BobS: one I do NOT want to enter
Ronald: Read an article in this mornings National Post about Mr. Clinton's budding friendship with Belinda Stronach
Daniel Bienvenu: hello Dr.d
rich-c: yes, he certainly seems to be doing a lot to salvage American goodwill abroad these days
Daniel Bienvenu: hi Ron!
Dr. D.: Hi Daniel.
BobS: heck I don't even want to see it !!!!!
Judy: hi, Daniel
Ronald: Salut Monsieur
Daniel Bienvenu: salut à vous!
Ronald: above a picture of them both, it said, "Is this Bubba's new Blonde?"
BobS: that was my thought when you typed it Ron
BobS: another bimbo ??????
Ronald: yeah
BobS: oh boy.............let's talk intellegently now
rich-c: I would not pay much attention to sleazy right-wing gossip mags
Judy: yes, he was not our finest hour
james: rich, you're an ann coulter fan, i presume ;)
Dr. D.: We are hoping that cost of wedding + immigration will be $1000-$1500.
Daniel Bienvenu: here... it's raining... a little storm... not enough to turn off my computer.
rich-c: don't you have a surge protector on your power bar, Daniel?
Dr. D.: Dissolution should be within $1500, maybe a bit over, but no surprises from initial estimates.
Ronald: I have little faith left in politicians from either side of the border
rich-c: bet I could come up with less, Ron
Judy: usually it is the lesser of two evils
Dr. D.: Richard is more cynical than any of us :-)
rich-c: been around longer, seen more
Daniel Bienvenu: yes, I have a huge power bar that said "protection" on it... but I don't want to experiment it.
Ronald: thank God we don't get as much government as we pay for
BobS: faith in THERE is an oxymoron
BobS: very true Ron
rich-c: you are likely OK with it, Daniel
Ronald: still trying to figure out what kind of session to work up for the 'con
rich-c: you need whole-house surge suppression to cope with a direct hit, but a moe distant strike what you have should be fine
Ronald: any suggestions?
Dr. D.: Comparison of all the computers you've ever had in your snake-pit, that would be interesting.
Dr. D.: You have used more different platforms than any of us, could provide informed compare/contrast.
Ronald: hmmm.
james: how old is the adam now? 22?
Ronald: now there's a thought
Daniel Bienvenu: I think our house is not grounded... I think the electric here is old and not safe.
rich-c: yeah, that way no one else would need to volunteer for anything - Ron could fill every session
Dr. D.: I know Rin liked Neil's history stuff, it would be more history.
rich-c: and still have content left over!
Guy B.: I thought it is 23.
Ronald: thank you Dr. D. I might just run with that
Ronald: 2006-1983
Dr. D.: It certainly would be stuff nobody has heard before at an ADAMcon.
rich-c: I've noticed most Quebec houses still seem to have lightning rods, at least in the rural areas
Ronald: I don't have as many now, but the memories linger
Dr. D.: Memories are good enough, you are not writing Wikipedia entries :-)
BobS: and linger, and linger
Ronald: true
james: hmm.. so 22 or 23 depending on when it was first available, or are we counting from conception?
Dr. D.: EOS source listing begins June or July 1983
Dr. D.: IIRC
james: :D
Ronald: that sounds like a good enough peg
Ronald: for the beginning, I mean
rich-c: yeah, now it's old enough to drink - and jpin you when it drives you to it

Ronald confirmed ban
Dr. D. 2 changed username to Dr. D.
Guy B.: The force is among us, Luke.
Dr. D.: Back to normal now.
Ronald: Use the Force
Dr. D.: Duct tape and WD-40
rich-c: don't forget the pushpins!
Ronald: THAT's RIGHT!!
Dr. D.: A distant 3rd IMHO, Richard
Ronald: out here, pushpins are invaluable
Ronald: but then, so is duct tape and WD-40
rich-c: well, we approach things diffwerently north of the border, Rich
Daniel Bienvenu: at my job, there is a real star wars fan. each time we talk he said something from one of the star wars film like "prepare my ship" or "I can read your mind"
Dr. D.: Viva la difference (or however it is spelt)
rich-c: wonder where Pam and Erin have got to?
james: differences are good, without them we wouldn't learn much
BobS confirmed ban
Dr. D.: Erin is not feeling well tonight either, I was on the phone with her a bit before logging in here.
Dr. D.: Pam, I dunno.
james: i think things would be quite boring
rich-c: yes, Star Wars and STar Trek and a few others have big fan bases among the younger generation
Ronald: speaking of the Force, I went to see the DaVinci Code Monday night
Ronald: Can't understand for the life of me what all the fuss is about
Daniel Bienvenu: I saw the "davinci code" movie too
rich-c: is it as much of a turkey as the critics say?
Dr. D.: Rin and I saw it 2 weeks ago, it is bleh
Ronald: I mean it was a good movie, and I enjoyed it, but it remains Fiction
Dr. D.: I never read the book, she did though
Ronald: I bought the book, but gave it to my daughter-in-law
Dr. D.: For a "treasure hunt" movie, it is not so good..."National Treasure" was IMHO loads better.
BobS: so you all say the hype will not make a moneymaker of it ???????
Dr. D.: And there is really sick and sadistic stuff in it, too. Not my cup of tea.
rich-c: I gather teh book itself is quite a good read
Ronald: Oh, I'm an easy pushover for any type of story line like that, and I'll buy just about anything Tom Hanks does
Ronald: suspended my critical faculties
Daniel Bienvenu: I only regret to not have enough time for imagination, trying to figure out what is the solution for the thing with lettres.
Ronald: Found myself chasing down Opus Dei in my Encarta
Dr. D.: For worshippers of "Bloom County"?
Dr. D.: <runs>
rich-c: there is some reason, I gather, to suspect the DVC portayal of it is very fictional
Guy B.: Opus
Dr. D.: could not resist the bad pun
Daniel Bienvenu: my friends will not go see this movie because (they said) "Tom Hanks is not a good choice for this movie, not credible".
Ronald: ohhhh!
Ronald: forgive me, I'm a little slow
Dr. D.: "Bloom County" has been gone for about 15 years now, so no prob
rich-c: some think he is the only thing the flick has going for it
moved to room Meeting Place
Ronald: Whilst over in E

Judy: hi Pam
Pamela: thank you Guy, I can use something cold : )
rich-c: with Cynthia, that constitutes short and sweet
rich-c: ]you get off easy; you're just a niece, not her sister!
Pamela: no, it was short because I wanted to get online!
Dr. D.: Rin can never get off the phone :-S
Pamela: Dad, are you having trouble getting your e-mail?
Pamela: and when she finishes bending Erin's ear, she bends mine

Guy B.: (PRIVATE) I'm chattingn with Carla right now
Pamela: alright, maybe I'll wait and try again later
rich-c: you using mailwasher?
Pamela: (PRIVATE) boy, talk about divided attention, Guy! : )
Pamela: yes, Dad
Daniel Bienvenu: off topic question : is it better a chatroom with the "typing space" up like this chat, or at the bottom like a messenger?
Guy B.: (PRIVATE) I have been doing this since I've got on
rich-c: remember if you right click on a message you can read it in Mailwasher then leave it on the server to download later

Daniel Bienvenu: hello Dale
Guy B.: Hi Dale
Ronald-Life-2: Anyway.... was trying to say that over the weekend in Edmonton, we all of us watched Brokeback Mountain
Pamela: and should I ask when you got home?
Ronald-Life-2: That, to me, was a better movie
Dr. D.: It was delayed by us being invited to Lisetta's place.
Daniel Bienvenu: long time no chat Dale
Ronald-Life-2: Hi Dale
rich-c: well, the critics haven';t savaged it the way they did DVC
BobS: heard it was Ron
Daniel Bienvenu: it's raining here!
Dale: Being unemployeed takes way too much time. I swear I had more free time when I was working.
Dr. D.: We didn't get back until 7:30 PMish, but we went straight to Perkins for supper.
Dale: Very long time.
Pamela: so you avoided evening rush - probably just as well
Ronald-Life-2: you unemployed Dale?
Dale: I was in Vienna, Austria
Dale: I was in Graz Austria
Dale: I was jet laged
Dr. D.: We stayed off the 401, came up Eglinton.
Dale: Then I had Jeffrey's soccer game.
Dale: Finally I'm on.
rich-c: might have done better on Lawrence, Rich
Dr. D.: We were in no hurry at that point.
Ronald-Life-2: what led to the globehopping Dale?
Dr. D.: See the sights, windows down.
Pamela: I was worried about evening rush, but realized that all those people leaving downtown at 5:00 wouldn't be near home until after six. I had smooth sailing all the way (all 10 minutes of it).
Dale: Sort of unemployeed. I'm setting up a new business, for which I'll be hiring employees in the fall.
Guy B.: Dale, did you visit Salzburg?
Pamela: pick me, pick me!
Dale: Didn't make it to Salzburg.
rich-c: how's your programming, Pam?
Dale: I'm making robots in my new company.
Ronald-Life-2: good. order me a housemaid
Dale: I went to Austria to attend the European Conference on Computer Vision.
Ronald-Life-2: aha!
Dr. D.: I think you can import them from the Ukraine or Estonia, Ron.
Ronald-Life-2: :)
Dr. D.: They reportedly come cheap.
Ronald-Life-2: (evil grin)
Daniel Bienvenu: Dale, I didn't programed yet the sound emulation
Dale: Not far off Ron. For my robots, I'm targeting an application in the kitchen.
Ronald-Life-2: Dale: while I have your ear
Dale: "self-loading dishwasher"
rich-c: if you can make one that cooks dinner, Frances wants the first off the line
Dale: Jill says "Hi all".
Daniel Bienvenu: but I saw a comment in a genesis emulator source code about the sound emulation with sdl. something tricky.
Daniel Bienvenu: Hi Jill!
Daniel Bienvenu: bonjour Jill
Daniel Bienvenu: bonsoir Jill
rich-c: hi to Jill
Guy B.: Hi Jill
Ronald-Life-2: Suggested to me this evening, that I do a session for the 'con on the "History of the Snake Pit", and the various incarnations of computing devices that have been there
Daniel Bienvenu: allo!
Ronald-Life-2: Could fill up an hour or an hour and a half with that - related all to ADAM of course

Pamela2: oh, ick Daddy

Dale: Nothing broken, but bruses galore.
Ronald-Life-2: not good Dale
Pamela2: is she okay Dale?
