Fuzzy Guy: I even saw Lawnmowers last week at Home Depot. No snowblowers, lawnmowers! What the hell?

rich-c: maybe thaat's when you can take a hand cart on the Metro, or something?
Judy: ...
Dale: He lives in Ontario as well I think.
Daniel Bienvenu: I was working on a music for a test coleco project... something that I may be able to use for the presentation I want to do during the adamcon. unfortunatly, I still don't know if I can be at the adamcon this year.

Judy: hi, Pam
Pamela: why does that look like it's spelled wrong?
rich-c: why, what's teh problem, Pam?
Pamela: dinner, for one : )
Daniel Bienvenu: My question is because I was surprized to see a request for a pokemon game for the coleco game system inside a christmas dsk before I started to chat with you. And thanks again Bob for sending me the dsk files.

Judy: the kids trade cards of pokemon
Dale: Two of the 10 best gameboy games are Pokemon games, according to many people.

Judy: okay, was wondering because you said you were cooking for one
Pamela: oh, I meant dinner for one thing

Daniel Bienvenu: enough webcams? how many webcams is enough?
Long Lost West: well we had intended to Rich, but Susan's dad is in ECU now, having had a stroke last summer (think I might have mentioned that) and several since. Difficult to make plans for any kind of a trip until that situation resolves itself
Long Lost West: So we've deferred any major travel indefinately
Judy: so, how many dogs do you have,Ron?
Long Lost West: I go along as a shoulder to cry on
Long Lost West: 2 Shepherds. Ages 2 and 6

BobS: who knows what will be ahead of us pricewise in a year..........
Ron: Susan keeps reminding me that air to the UK is much cheaper than air to eastern Canada
BobS: heck, we are all going to move to Canada for jobs man
rich-c: who knows what fars will be like next year? though the outlook is for oil to be very reasonable
Judy: I am good to go anywhere

Ron: :)
BobS: taht stinks Daniel
Judy: but right now we are in a much better place than two years ago, so we will stay
rich-c: is there an emoticon for the tongue sticking out?
Dale: :-P
Ron: Susan took her nurse's training in Leeds England. That is my late father's home town, and also where I spent the first 4 years of my life
Ron: these days, it's uncanny - Susan sounds like my Dad.
Ron: probably one of these karma things - sometimes I have to wonder who is in the room
BobS: no kidding, you are a born Brit ?????
BobS: never woulda guessed it Ron
BobS: yo utalk like a canadian
Ron: No but I went there at age 13 months, and stayed until I was 4 yrs

Ron: At the tender age of 4, I had blond hair, short pants and a British accent
Ron: I was such a cute little boy
Ron: wonder what happened
Meeka: everyone is cute at that age
BobS: now, now, don't go getting prim and proper on us Ron
Ron: <evil grin>
BobS: next thing you will tell us you knew the queen
Judy: love it, Ron
Ron: nah, but I do recall being waved at by Winston Churchill
BobS: cool
Judy: the wind is blowing like crazy, sounds bad
Ron: there's a trivia question on your e-mail. What was the name of the first Midi-Mite music player. (Hint) it was not Sequel
rich-c: all I managed was to see George VI and Princess Elizabeth on various occasions
Ron: that certainly dates you Rich
BobS: but he is proud of it Ron
BobS: right Richard?
Ron: aha
rich-c: well, when I was born, Herbert Hoover was president (remember I'm US born)
Ron: oh yes, I'd forgotten that
BobS: Herb?
Dale: Didn't it play Video Tuves songs?
Dale: Are we allowed to guess?
Ron: yea go for it
rich-c: in fact, Frances and my first "outing" was a stroll over to Hart House, where Princess Elizabeth and Philip were visiting
Judy: when did you leave the US, Rich?
Dale: Sequal seperate program that was sold seperately.
rich-c: 1938, Bob
BobS: ....
Dale: I thoight it was VTplayer.
Ron: yes, and it came out after the Midi Mite
Dale: Or it was the christmas card program.
Ron: yes there was a VT player, but I remember Ron Collins doing a demo of something else at AC 4
rich-c: wasn't Vidoe Tunes a standalone that was sold before Chris built the midi interface?
Dale: Which is called sludge or something. <wink>
Pamela: I thought you were older than that Dad - does that mean that Gordon was born in Toronto?
Ron: you're right Rich.
Dale: Yes, Video Tunes was standalone from before
Dale: But Chris wanted to support the format.
Meeka: well folkls, i gotta run...I need to kick Doug off the PS2 so he goes to bed on time, has a meeting first thing tomorrow
rich-c: yes, Gordon was Canmadian
Pamela: gnite Meeka
Judy: ..
Ron: When Joe Blenkle asked the question today, I had to think, and I'm drawing a blank. He thought VT Player was written by Chris Braymen
rich-c: nite Meeka
Pamela: see you next week
Ron: Nite Meeka
Judy: night Meeka
Meeka: night
BobS: nite Meeka
Meeka left chat session
Dale: I really think that VTPlayer was written by Chris.
Dale: Video Tunes didn't come with a seperate player program.
Ron: Nope - Futurevision - Steve Pitman replied to Joe's email
Ron: Or was it just Futurevision that marketed it
Dale: I think that the first demo of the MidiMite was actually at lunch at AdamCon 01.
rich-c: well, there was one, Video (something) that played through the Adam sound generator
Ron: You might well be right Dale. I didn't see it until Adamcon 4
Dale: Video Tunes did just that Richard.
Ron: or was it 3?? Memory fades
Judy: she will have to take Doug to work in the morning, car problems and are down to one car
Dale: But "VT player" was made later by Chris to play on the MidiMite.
Pamela: what are they driving at the moment?
Ron: Bob - have a question for you
rich-c: anyway, Video Tunes ws written by a guy over in the Boston area
rich-c: he ended up with about four dozen cassettes in his gatrage but wouldn't sell them
Ron: That power supply that goes with the CF Flash card - IDE interface. Could you send me the name of the supplier that you got it from?
rich-c: essentially too much effort to go to the post office
Dale: AdamCon 01 was the only AdamCon that I didn't do a presentation.
Ron: Had made a note of it at AC 20, but lost the note
Judy: ..
Dale: I didn't really think that I knew enough to make a presentation. But then I met Rob from CompuServe.
Judy: Meeka's van
Dale: And he convinced me otherwise.
BobS: pointing mouse is the seller name on Ebay ron
Daniel Bienvenu: I did only 2 presentations if we don't consider those presented by Dale
Ron: Thank you sir
Dale: The other ones count I think Daniel.
rich-c: that's OK Daniel, you're getting there
Dale: I didn't prepare anything, you did it.
Daniel Bienvenu: I did 3 presentations
BobS: or just search for "hard drive power supply" on Ebay
Ron: Good - ok thanks Bob
Pamela: it certainly makes public speaking easier when you're among friends
Daniel Bienvenu: 1 about tools and projects at whiteby with GuyF, 1 about homebrew games at Gatineau, 1 about minigames (cartridge) at Niagara.
rich-c: Dale, what is the score on the IDE interface for Adam?
BobS: keyhere .......is another seller I have bought from with good results
Ron: Gonna have to say good night folks - hopefully will see ya's next week.
Pamela: night Ron
Dale: Bob has some still last I checked.
BobS: nite Ron
Pamela: hi to Susan
BobS: si
rich-c: OK, our best to Susan and the pups too - see you soon
BobS: HI SUSAN
Dale: Only 64 MB drives are supported.
Ron: will do G'nite all - sleep well
Dale: But that does include things like Zip drives.
Ron left chat session
Daniel Bienvenu: bye Ron
Daniel Bienvenu: (too late again)
Judy: ..
rich-c: well, I'm still not clear on using an IDE interface and CF card (or flash drive) as an Adam hard disc
Daniel Bienvenu: so, GuyF didn't manifest himself after I loged in tonight. I'm ugly or what?
rich-c: I know some of you folks are doing it, but not how
BobS: tis simply ussing memory instead of a hard drive richard
Dale: Sorry Daniel.
Guy B.: Ok, folks. Back
Dale: He said 3 things after I arrived.
rich-c: yes, but a CF card is static memory anyway, writeable but static, isn't it?
BobS: had to get up at 5am
BobS: who knows Richard,.......all I know is that it works
Pamela: a horrible hour
Pamela: how long are you off Bob?
rich-c: yes, Daniel's worried about Guy Foster who was very quiet
BobS: is that in my hours of a regualr day ???? NO!!!!!
BobS: till Sat and MOn, then a day off and then back full time I guess
Pamela: sobasically a week - not bad
Judy: ..
BobS: bout 10 days or so
Pamela: what's our outing this year?
BobS: secret
Pamela: or has that not been decided yet
Judy: we don't know yet
BobS: was going to be a nude beach, butreality took hold and we decided NOT
Pamela: good call :
Judy: and there are none around here
BobS: so there!!!!! for asking
BobS: actully there was some sentiment for the beach
Judy: we live in a stuffy area
Dale: There's one in Toronto if that's a consideration for AC22.
Dale: :-)
rich-c: Bob, when negotiating, ask about us coming early and/or staying over, same rate
BobS: probably not
BobS: got it Richard, you are covered
BobS: jsut let me know when and I will set it up
Judy: we already talked to them about that,Rich
BobS: gongto go talk to them tomorrow or Fri again
Daniel Bienvenu: So I guess you didn't find back the christmas dsk I was talking about, Bob. It's not important anyway, just wanted to know who she is because I've never see her.
rich-c: don't forget teh stuff in my email, either - that is critical, I need to know
BobS: looked at 2004, 2005 and 2006 and not babe
BobS: have ot unzip more to find it

Pamela: sec
BobS: ok daniel
rich-c: Oh, does anyone have Jim Walterd email adress? in case he'll talk to Joe Blenkle about PrBoot?
Pamela: Daniel are you trying to figure out who someone is?
Dale: I bet she is Rich Drushel's daughter.
BobS: nope
Dale: Maybe Elianor?
BobS: good idea Dale.....possibly the girl
rich-c: well, he has four daughters, take your pick
Dale: From an ANN Christmas card disk from several years ago.
Judy: ..
BobS: could prolly have been Elanor
Pamela: Bob, I'll e-mail Murray's addy to you
BobS: ok Pam
Daniel Bienvenu: that makes sense, probably her, yes. knowing that there is a lot of pixelized pictures including one of Dr.D.
Pamela: is the sbc addy still active?
rich-c: you can likely find some pictures of her on Rich's personal site somewhere
Pamela: or on Meeka's
rich-c: Murray is at eagle.ca but I don't know his username
BobS: yup
Judy: ..
BobS: IF I didn't delete allmy old emails (which I prolly did) I would have Murray's email...........
Daniel Bienvenu: But, I don't know for sure if it's her picture in the christmas dsk where it says "pokemon game for coleco".
