Guy "Adamite" F.: You can stay at our place if you can handle 2 kids yelling and screaming all the time. rich-c: is there a VIA stop out your way, Dale? Dale: There is one right at the edge between Oshawa and Whirby. Dale: But 15 min drive from here. rich-c: really? I thought from Union the Montreal train ran non-stop to Kinston Guy "Adamite" F.: Why not take the bus? Dale: On the famous Montreal-Windsor corrodor. rich-c: buses are not always nice places to be, Guy Dale: rich, there are about 3 non-stop trains, and the rest stop in Oshawa. Dale: (and a few other spots. Dale: ) rich-c: OK, I've ridden them adn don't recall an Oshawa stop, but my trips have been few Guy "Adamite" F.: I went to New York once by train and it was very enjoyable, much more than the bus. Dale: Yelling and screaming sounds promising. Dale: I'd bring my sleeping bag. rich-c: still haven't lost your tolerance, Dale?

Guy "Adamite" F.: Sandra, she's due June 3rd.. but usually is late. rich-c: he really just wants help with that wallpaper ;-) Pamela-achooo: well he's already got the bedroom done : ) Guy "Adamite" F.: Wallpaper is done, all gone... now I need to prime the room and repaint it. Will be all done before he arrives. :) Pamela-achooo: you're turning into a regular handyman, Guy rich-c: happens to young homeowners, Pam - or else Guy "Adamite" F.: More like a regular homeowner stuck fixing and renovating things around the house. Pamela-achooo: still it sounds like you've gone above and beyond with a lot of things Pamela-achooo: I hope you're taking pictures of all the changes Guy "Adamite" F.: Well, I did a lot last year and this year, I can't wait to sip ice-tea in my backyard and enjoy life. rich-c: babies don't lend themselves to much ice tea sipping time Guy "Adamite" F.: Dan: Alors, ca te tente de rester chez moi le Samedi soir de la reunion CCJVQ? On pourra parler Coleco avec DALE. Pamela-achooo: what are you going to do when you run out of things to fix? Guy "Adamite" F.: Rich: That is why I have a wife for. :) Guy "Adamite" F.: Pamela: Sell the house and get another one to fix! Pamela-achooo: that's what I thought : ) Daniel Bienvenu: The ccjvq meeting usually starts around 17h30... and ends when you want to leave. Guy "Adamite" F.: I have lik 3-4 boxes of stuff I'd like to sell, Atari 2600, Vic-20, Nintendo stuff mainly, TG16, Panasonic 3DO also rich-c: more an evening meeting then - then do you eat, Daniel? Dale: I'll try to be back before everyone leaves...see you then. Pamela-achooo: ok rich-c: right Guy "Adamite" F.: Dale: Leaving us so soon? Daniel Bienvenu: Because I eat before the meeting, I'm never there before 18h30 Guy "Adamite" F.: I usually go there for like 7:00 PM or so, I eat before and take my time to get there. Daniel Bienvenu: I try to eat before to be able to stay with my stuff during the entire meeting. rich-c: I'd consider that a late afternoon lunch, but others do differ Pamela-achooo: is this a swap meet? Guy "Adamite" F.: I hope that guy with the Vic-20 cartridge won't talk my ear off again this time...he's really passionate about the Vic-20! :) Guy "Adamite" F.: yes, a swap meet of sorts, indeed. rich-c: think he'd like another? I have one surplus Pamela-achooo: gee, we don't know anyone like that . . . : ) Daniel Bienvenu: during this meeting, we talk about video games (vintages and new ones), we trade and sell video games (and related stuff), and we talk with friends if we did make any in this group of course. Pamela-achooo: it's still freakin' freezing in here - I need a blanket rich-c: thought you had that under control, Pam Daniel Bienvenu: Reccently, there is a girl who talk by signs... GuyF meet her at least once. Guy "Adamite" F.: Yeah, bought an Atari 2600 from her. Daniel Bienvenu: the same you are selling now? rich-c: is siogn language teh same in French and English? Guy "Adamite" F.: well, I am selling Atari 2600 cartridges actually. Pamela-achooo: we did until they painted in here over the weekend - they left the windows open in the stairwells for 24 hours in minus 20 degree weather and we lost a lot of heat Guy "Adamite" F.: I think it's an international language. Pamela-achooo: was 20 in here the other night Daniel Bienvenu: I will have coleco and atari games for sale probably too. I'm just starting to take a look of what I could bring at this meeting. Pamela-achooo: sweats, sweatshirt over turtleneck, socks, blanket and I'm still cold Guy "Adamite" F.: Woohoo, 9 degrees C for Friday! YaY! rich-c: we need something like that in Toronto, maybe I could unload a fw joysticks Guy B.: We might hit 60 on Friday Daniel Bienvenu: meanwhile, I was able to plug again my colecovision... and I tried my newest roms, that's cool to run my projects on the real thing. Guy "Adamite" F.: Well, Dale could bring some of your stuff and sell it off for you, if you guys are not too far away from each other. BobS: sounds like your fever Pam......Judy says she remembers when she had the fever when we were traveling one time......we roasted and she was STIKLL cold Guy "Adamite" F.: Awesome Guy! Pamela-achooo: no, I checked my temp Bob - perfectly fine (98.4 I think) Guy "Adamite" F.: Isn't it 96.9? Daniel Bienvenu: I have no idea if the signs are similar between english and french... I guess some are similars but because of the differences of phrase structures and shortcuts, I guess the signs are not the same. rich-c: I think the language is based on meaning not grammar, so it might be multilingual Guy "Adamite" F.: exactly Rich, what I think too, after all, it is called the intertnational sign language Daniel Bienvenu: anyway, we usually use paper and pencil to talk with her. rich-c: international, not interlingual though, Guy Guy "Adamite" F.: Did I miss the last meeting Dan? Of CCJVQ? Guy "Adamite" F.: intralingual Daniel Bienvenu: she can read and write in french and english... not perfect in both, but it's really understandable. Daniel Bienvenu: I wasn't at the previous ccjvq meeting. rich-c: she's doing better than I could! Guy "Adamite" F.: well, if you don't show up, I have no realy incentive to show up, it's mainly to catch up with yu that I go to those meetings. Daniel Bienvenu: Based on the messages, GuyF, you didn't miss a nice meeting. Guy "Adamite" F.: really? what was wrong with the meeting? Guy "Adamite" F.: Pam Pamela-achooo: it wasn't me! Daniel Bienvenu: The announce of someone with the cancer... it was a shock and the meeting was not really "happy joy joy" Guy "Adamite" F.: Pam: I found a cool applet for my GPS, the "Lick's" applet, tells me where the closest Lick's restaurant is from my current position. The closet one from my house is in...... WHITBY. Pamela-achooo: LOL - got you hooked, did I? Guy "Adamite" F.: Not very good timing to announce their cancer at such a meetinG! Guy "Adamite" F.: Yeah,last time I was there was with you, but we've been wanting to go back ever since. rich-c: well, isn't Whitby about half-way between you two? Guy "Adamite" F.: Whitby is far for me... at least 4 hours I think. Pamela-achooo: you'll have to have Dale bring you a burger when he comes down : ) Guy "Adamite" F.: yeah, haha Daniel Bienvenu: now the shock is passed, but the cancer still there (didn't vanish during this period), and this guy will probably die before the end of the year because the traitements are unefficients giving a lifetime prediction of about 6 months left. And this guy is named Frank, and he is one of the managers of this video game shop. rich-c: you have to remember Pamela lives way west in Toronto :-) Guy "Adamite" F.: hamilton? Pamela-achooo: no no, I live in Weston - far west end of Toronto Guy "Adamite" F.: we will all be dead within 100 years... rich-c: just about ; - ) Guy "Adamite" F.: no way around it unfortunately. Pamela-achooo: but still in T.O. despite what the post office thinks rich-c: insist on Weston Guy "Adamite" F.: Weston, that's the bread I eat. Daniel Bienvenu: I checked twice about "poutine"... and some restaurants uses cheddar, and some uses gouda. I personnaly prefer with gouda. Pamela-achooo: where do you think it came from? : ) Guy "Adamite" F.: If I had a chance, I have to bring Dale to the best Poutine restaurant in Quebec. Guy "Adamite" F.: "La Banquise" Guy "Adamite" F.: Pam: Ahhh, I learn something new everytime on chat! Daniel Bienvenu: never try this one... La banquise... I think I saw a review about poutine talking about this place. Pamela-achooo: have you seen the new PC commercials with Galen Weston? rich-c: there was quite an article on poutine in the Star a week or two ago Guy "Adamite" F.: La Banquise is next to Mt-Royal metro on the Plateau, very trendy poutine restaurant. Pamela-achooo: trendy usually means $$$$ Guy "Adamite" F.: Which one? Guy "Adamite" F.: Yeah, $10+ for a good poutine, that's for sure, but they're the best you'll ever have. rich-c: were you asking about the article, Guy? Guy "Adamite" F.: no, the PC commercial... Guy "Adamite" F.: but the article sounds interesting, was probably reprinted in the montreal gazette, we outsource all our articles from Ontario newspapers. Daniel Bienvenu: I was able to program the first seconds of the music "Smooth Criminal" for the ColecoVision. I'm using it to test some emulators. It will be my next video on youtube. rich-c: where's Judy, Bob? Laptop gone terminal? Guy "Adamite" F.: Nice.... I love tht song. Pamela-achooo: any of them - my point is that Galen Weston is the CEO of the Loblaws family of stores and I believe Weston Bakeries is part of that group Guy "Adamite" F.: Adam are you OK, are you OK Adam, you've been hit... you've been hit by a... smooth criminal. Daniel Bienvenu: I'm going to download some emulators because I've only 2 right now on my computer. Guy "Adamite" F.: We like the PC brand, lots of good quality products. BobS: nope, she is "too pooped to pop" as the saying goes. she is sitting here just watchin TV Pamela-achooo: as do we Guy "Adamite" F.: I'm a fan of their diapers and baby products, very good prices. Daniel Bienvenu: This is what he said? I didn't realized. Sorry but I did only concentrate on the music. Pamela-achooo: we've tried a lot of PC products over the years - there are very few that we wouldn't use again rich-c: I'm finding their "blue menu" stuff a little too thin in some cases, though Guy "Adamite" F.: Dan: Wel,l, he actually says "Annie are you OK"...
moved to room Meeting Place Guy "Adamite" F.: Haven't tried the blue products yet.

Pamela-achooo: if you don't refrig it, it will eventually go bad BobS: we just don't flaunt it !!!! McRonald: I took it because the Doctor gave it to me Pamela-achooo: chest cold Ron? McRonald: I have a pre-disposition to pneumonia and also Athsma, so stronger measures are needed when a cold goes to my chest Pamela-achooo: that's why Dale: I've never stored Bailey's in the fridge. McRonald: I am informed that Bailey's has cream in it McRonald: shows you what I know BobS: si senor Pamela-achooo: I do like your wife, Ron : ) Dale: It never hurt me. BobS: Baileys Irish CREME Dale: The alchohol is a preservative don't you know. McRonald: thank you she says rich-c: yes, I was an it for my COPD until very recently, Ron, and it really tears you up Dale: I'm not so sure there is actually creme in Baileys. Pamela-achooo: she is very welcome : ) Pamela-achooo: it doesn't get used a lot around here so once open, it goes in the fridge rich-c: I believe it is honest Irish dairy cream, Dale McRonald: I just had to explain to Susan what and emoticon is Dale: I see it does contain 44% cream according to wikipedia. McRonald: :) Pamela-achooo: also, it's easier to make a Bailey's freeze if it's cold Daniel Bienvenu: I'm back McRonald: That's what I like about Dale - he researches stuff Dale: And should be stored between 5 and 35 degrees Celcius. McRonald: Susan says she's had one of those, says it's very good Dale: So that's fridge or shelf kind of stuff. McRonald: Wants to know if you've had a vodka Jelly rich-c: you people are making me thirsty - brb McRonald: Rich is off to the fridge again Pamela-achooo: oh yes, I made one on a Friday last summer - lasted all night and was incredible Pamela-achooo: the Baileys that is - unfortunately, vodka is not my thing McRonald: Susan says you're her kind of person Pam Dale: Apparently Bailey's actually uses up 4.3% of the total milk production in all of Ireland. Pamela-achooo: why thank you, ma'am Dale: So it really has cream in it seems. rich-c: yes, Ron, getting my Wednesday chat beer McRonald: enjoy my son, you deserve it Pamela-achooo: I'm partial to the girly drinks - baileys, kahlua, long islands, fuzzy navels, Wild Vines wine rich-c: weeks I miss chat, I nearly perish of thirst Dale: And it was invented in 1971-1974 as a good idea for an export product. Dale: Who knew that there is no real R.A. Bailey. McRonald: Seems it was a hit Dale Pamela-achooo: I'll say McRonald: sort of thing you wish you'd thought of Pamela-achooo: well, they had all this Irish hanging around . . . rich-c: trouble is, it takes the express track to the waistline, with a load of freight aboard McRonald: Could finance Adamcons forever with the proceeds Dale: I'll be back again. McRonald: next life? Pamela-achooo: really really swanky Adamcons at that McRonald: I'm coming back as a drummer McRonald: you bet Pam Pamela-achooo: I wish they would bring back Grand Marnier cream rich-c: don't worry, if I win the 6/49 tonight, next Adamcon is on me McRonald: remember who your friends are Rich rich-c: see above Ron McRonald: :) BobS: ahhh....didn't know we loswt Grand Marnier cream Pamela-achooo: by the way, why are you McRonald?

I am on a Mac rich-c: which one this week, Ron? MacRonald: it is an eMac, rather crudely name by Susan as "bigass" Pamela-achooo: somehow I didn't think it had anything to do with McD's :) BobS: THAT was a lifeltime ago MacRonald: Susan does not like computers, nor the amount of time I spend on them rich-c: that suggests Susan is a Windows advocate MacRonald: by protest only. If she had her way, Windows 95 would be alive and well Pamela-achooo: computers are addictive MacRonald: Her's runs Vista, but only because that's what it came wit rich-c: I was getting a new battery for my laptop week or so ago rich-c: computer shop guy said he can't sell Vista - commercial customers won't accept it Pamela-achooo: was? Pamela-achooo: ah MacRonald: never in the field of modern computing was so much fouled up by so few rich-c: have to show Susan ow and where a computer caters to her prejudices MacRonald: ?? BobS: si......but I have to admit, the upgrade to XP solved alot of harware problems on installation for novice like me BobS: hardware rich-c: that's what has Frances addicted - what she wants to know about, it tells her Pamela-achooo: sometimes I wish it would tell me MacRonald: That's pretty much where Susan is too. She's quite capable of finding out stuff BobS: it is a dumb machine...BUT a great tool if it gives you what you want MacRonald: exactly rich-c: Frances has her cycle of websites she's on almost daily Pamela-achooo: unfortunately sometimes what i want to know about isn't available to tell BobS: the PROBLEM is it alwasy can give me what I want Pamela-achooo: or I'm not asking the right question BobS: exactly !!!!! rich-c: big ones at the moment include sleep apnea and hip replacement - got curious about mine BobS: kind of garbage in = garbage out MacRonald: yes, an anti-gravity device, a tree that grows money, and a way of looking into the future as far as next weeks loto MacRonald: If I get 3, I don't need 2 Pamela-achooo: if you get two, you don't need three MacRonald: whatever Pam rich-c: aside, Pam - did you get my Instant?

MacRonald: MESS - is that a new one MacRonald: ?? Pamela-achooo: found it - with the flyers, strangely enough rich-c: Daniel, where do you cross the line from where a multi-emulator is better than a virtual machine? MacRonald: I admire your sense of organization Pam MacRonald: lists go with flyers, and flyers generate lists Daniel Bienvenu: mess is not a new emulator, I tried it the first time around year 2000. Pamela-achooo: problem is Ron, they're in a pile on the floor, where I dumped them last night looking for something else Pamela-achooo: and they're last week's flyers Daniel Bienvenu: mess was the first coleco emulator I tried that came with a debugger MacRonald: @Daniel: oh, ok..... hadn't heard of it Pamela-achooo: as I said, welcome to the disaster that is my living room rich-c: so much for organization - she gets it from her parents MacRonald: comment have I not Daniel Bienvenu: For Mac, Mugrat seems to be the popular ColecoVision emulator rich-c: Susan teaching you tact? Pamela-achooo: I said recently, I'm an organized soul in a procrastinator's body - I know where everything should go, I just put off getting it there : ) MacRonald: Must try that one. Mugrat Pamela-achooo: no, he knows better : ) MacRonald: Now trying to find one that will allow bigass to run Ubuntu 8.10 without choking MacRonald: Virtual Box almost resulted in the death of the poor beast MacRonald: VM Ware, I refuse to pay for MacRonald: There's gotta be something out there Daniel Bienvenu: a virtual box... I think there is one named QEmu rich-c: where Mac is concerned, I know from nothing, but one of my carnuts buddies might MacRonald: Yup, ok... haven't tried that yet. You're quite right Daniel Thanks you very much rich-c: got an IT guy who uses virtual machines exclusively, I believe on a Mac MacRonald: run that by him Rich, ifn youd be so kind Daniel Bienvenu: a page about qemu and kvm... here Daniel Bienvenu: http://qemu-buch.de/ rich-c: of course he can charge his to the company, but I've ehard him mutter about VM Ware not being worth it MacRonald: thanks Daniel Pamela-achooo: there, flyers in recycling MacRonald: Yes, so I've heard Rich Pamela-achooo: brb rich-c: in Windows I can get all sorts of comments, but Mac users are fewer MacRonald: Might just have to revive the Windows box sitting at my feet and so far unplugged Dale: Well when I've used VMWare, it was amazing. Dale: Completely indespensible for the work I was doing. MacRonald: really Dale? Dale: It allowed me to wind back changes to a system, so that I could always do a clean install. MacRonald: Have not tried it for a while.
