Geoff and Rich are in favour of getting them rich-c: but they don't have much idea of what they are or what they're good for Judy: we have never seen an oriole here ADAMCON Bob: don't get the mailing list again ADAMCON Bob: SH!T Meeka: we dont get the mail from the list....Dale keeps promisimng to fix it rich-c: well, this just turned up - that's why I was late rich-c: in fact geoff's posting today was teh first for a very l,ong time Judy: Meeka what time are you planning on coming tomorrow? rich-c: we have had an oriole in our pear tree once or twice over the years, but very rarely Meeka: 9:30-10:00 ?? Judy: .. Judy: sounds good rich-c: by the way judy, if a purple finch sneaks in among the house finches, you likely won't spot him Judy: no, they are close to the same Go Cubs: Hey Rich, you're usually the first one here. rich-c: anyway Luc, I have suggested that teh Adam community should have those pieces ADAMCON Bob: how many of those test modules would yo like ???????? looks like a homemade ATARI adapter with some stuff ripped out........looks kinda fake to me rich-c: we also must see we don't bid against each other to get them - there will be enough outsiderss anyway LucMiron: How would you define the "Adam community"? :) rich-c: pretty well anyone who has ever been on this chat, for starters rich-c: whoever gets custody can share the information and circullate them for experimentation rich-c: I think anyone who has been to an Adamcon or wants to go to one would qualify, Luc Judy: looks a little crude to me rich-c: if we want to form a pool and everyone chip in a bit to make sure we have enough to win, I'm up for that LucMiron: Too much trouble, if you ask me... rich-c: electronics types call a prototype a "breadboard" for a reason, Judy rich-c: depends on how badly you and GuyF and Daniel might want to examine and use it, Luc LucMiron: Y'know, they should have kept that shape for the casing, instead of what we got... ADAMCON Bob: I seriously doubt that it is anything we can use, a crudely made "breadboard" but usingan Atair adapter(?); and how the heck will we fingure out what it is and how to sue it? Judy: .. Meeka: anybody have the item number for it so I can see it too rich-c: Dr. D. and geoff are busy trying to figure that out, so we will need their opinion to decide our strategy ADAMCON Bob: item # 380130289581 rich-c: sorry, meeka, Frances is on the email computer rich-c: anyway, we have six days before we have to figure out who is willing to commit what and why rich-c: I'd prefer that Bob take on the role of designated bidder, but maybe geoff might be better?

LucMiron: Yeah, I just closed the window from which Spaniel was spawned, and it shut down everything. rich-c: yes, you're better leaving it up and opening anything else in another tab rich-c: sometimes I use IE over Firefox to do a Google search or such when we are chatting

Judy: do you get home so late, that you are eatting supper now? Daniel Bienvenu: no you didn't told me OK Blue Jays: given teh lake breeze I'd expect it to be downright chilly! Judy: wired why? Pamela: no but i had calls and visitors Ron: I guess I'm supposed to be a Seattle Mariners fan Pamela: Riverdance last night LucMiron: Well, Steve thanked me for the custom Penguin Land box I sent him... Over a year and a half ago! OK Blue Jays: oh if you're fussed, I got your hinges Monday afternoon Ron: Oh wow! Ron: Riverdance! Judy: was it good? Daniel Bienvenu: that may be a good sign, luc Pamela: thanks Dad Pamela: AWESOME! LucMiron: Better than a 'good sign', he's going to let me publish 100 new copies of Penguin Land! Pamela: Wish fulfillment on stage Ron: What would one pay for a ticket there? OK Blue Jays: I think we have a tape of it - have to give it a look sometime Judy: that is good Daniel Bienvenu: only penguin land? LucMiron: I'll be working with J-F (retroillucid on the AtariAge forums) to make it happen. Pamela: $89.00 for basically front row centre Ron: actually, that's not bad Pamela: no, it's incredibly good Ron: would be over $100 in Vancouver LucMiron: Well, if Penguin Land goes well, Steve will probably let us publish a run of Lode Runner carts too. Pamela: OMG, it was incredible LucMiron: Steve is also interested in letting us publish Wizard Siege, if he ever finishes it. Pamela: I want to go back and see it again Pamela: unfortunately, not enough time or $$ to go back LucMiron: I will be using sky-blue cartrdige casings for Penguin Land, and green casings for Lode Runner. Ron: We were thinking of going to see Il Divo recently; they were in Vancouver and Victoria. But the prices were outa sight $150. plus OK Blue Jays: hey, anyone heard from Guy Foster? Is he a parent again, yet? Judy: is it in town for long, Pam? LucMiron: @rish: Haven't heard anything from him. Pamela: June 5th to 21st Judy - and it's the farewell tour OK Blue Jays: anything on his Facebook site? our women might know Ron: Does Michael Flatley own the production now? Pamela: from here they go home to Ireland for the grand finale Pamela: no, he's had nothing to do with it since 1996 Ron Judy: I see Ron: oh really? Ron: We've got a DVD and a VHS tape here of it (different shows), and he was still involved. Guess that must have been a while ago Pamela: thats when he started Lord of the Dance Ron: ok OK Blue Jays: so how is Susan doing, Ron? Pamela: there was a lot of controversy at the time - he was apparently a super-arrogant son of a b and no one could work with him Pamela: his leading lady, Jean Pamela: Butler, hated his guts Ron: Very well thanks. We went to our church men's club breakfast this morning. Last meeting of the year, so we took the wives to breakfast Judy: .. Daniel Bienvenu: well, what you are saying confirm that Steve did progress with his projects, he did stop everything all these year, and returning to his projects may have unpredictable results. so, I will not bet on a wizard siege cartridge, but I'm happy that he did consider to let a publisher do a couple of cartridges. OK Blue Jays: didnt know you were a church activist, Ron Ron: Susan is active. Since last fall I have been going - more with questions than answers - but I go Daniel Bienvenu: somehow, this break may indicate a return or a end, depending on what will happen now Daniel Bienvenu: it's like opening pandora's box OK Blue Jays: though it's not my thing, I do hope he carries on, Daniel Daniel Bienvenu: I hope to see him back on his projects OK Blue Jays: every little spark of activity in the Colecovision-Adam community helps Ron: I really must rescue my Adam from the workshop. It's been in a box since last fall Pamela: I checked Guy F's profile just before heading here and nothing yet Judy: my text stopped coming thru again Daniel Bienvenu: but he did always act in a strange way Judy: there it came Meeka: poor mom LucMiron: Well, I'll just be happy if Penguin Land and Lode Runner get released in more copies. Ron: I see ya Judy Pamela: I thought Sandra was supposed to be induced yesterday OK Blue Jays: well, maybe he has more pressing things to do than post on Facebook Pamela: no, he made another post about something else about an hour ago so I know it's not that Ron: do you guys use the 'social Ron: web sites? Daniel Bienvenu: if you want to publish also lode runner, you will have to give him back the fire of the passion, that may two results... a boost or a burn. Ron: Think I'm really behind the times Ron: Twitter, Facebook, etc Ron: ?? Pamela: just facebook along with Daniel, Dale, Jillian, Guy F Pamela: oh, and Neil OK Blue Jays: I have my carnuts website, don't know if that counts as social or not Pamela: Bob, is Neil coming? Go Cubs: Game is tied 1-1 ADAMCON Bob: NO Neil Pamela: really! Did he say why? Judy: yes, I am here but if I do just .. you know that things are not coming thru again Ron: Oh.... speaking of the 'con..... Meeka: yes ron?? OK Blue Jays: maybe your ISP is doing some monkeying about or something, judy Ron: I might not be able to make the Saturday night chat. We're having about 18 people for a barbecue that night, had forgotten all about the date. Meeka: lol, but then dad would have the same problem Rich LucMiron: @Daniel: In Lode Runner's case, if he can just give me the ROM, we'll use it as-is. Daniel Bienvenu: I ahve the rom Daniel Bienvenu: I have the penguin land rom too Judy: Neil has no money, he is in school Ron: Will have to look in somewhere in there, but it probably won't be Saturday evening Pamela: none of us have any money : ) OK Blue Jays: ah, this is something that happens on Judy's computer but not on Bob"s? Pamela: well darn, Ron LucMiron: We're looking into adding the CollectorVision logo on Penguin Land's title screen... Ron: I know. We set it up about a month ago Pamela: Guy, who are the cubs playing? Judy: just give us a time, Ron and we will be on Meeka: correct Rich Ron: good OK Blue Jays: then I guess Doug will have a challenge on his hands - bet he can find it Judy: yes it only happens on my computer and no one knows why Daniel Bienvenu: @luc : for that you will have to pray. because if steve doesn't feel to be ready to go back into coding, adding a splash screen will mean to hack the rom and patch it. Meeka: Doug has tried a little bit Meeka: he would have to take home to do better testing, but then mom wouldnt have Judy: and what he thought was the problem is not Ron: one of those pesky faults that only surfaces on a Wed night OK Blue Jays: so it's still answer pending, Meeka - never mind, we have faith in him Judy: I could give it to him if that is what he needs Judy: that is about it, Ron OK Blue Jays: Bob, will you be doing any internet broadcasting from the 'Con - webcam or whatever? Meeka: Doug blames it on the spaniel chat applet for now cuz thats the only thing affected LucMiron: @Daniel: Well, it was Steve himself who offered to add the CollectorVision logo, so... :) Daniel Bienvenu: it doesn't mean you will have a rom this year with the logo OK Blue Jays: is your version of Java up to date? that was a problem at one point Daniel Bienvenu: I still didn't change bejeweled into jewel panic Ron: Anybody heard from Dr. D. or Erin lately? OK Blue Jays: have you found the title you choose makes a difference, Daniel? Meeka: that detail isnt worked out yet Rich Pamela: was with Erin tonite OK Blue Jays: Dr. D. posted today that he is still not unpacked Judy: we don't know, Rich Ron: Good. Assume all is well Pamela: had her "surprise" farewell party at work today Daniel Bienvenu: based on the numerous emails lately in the mailing list, Dr.D is checking the new pictures of the strange coleco thing Ron: So she's finally going to be allowed to cross the border? Pamela: came home with flowers and lots of goodies Meeka: brb, need a drink Pamela: oh yes, the move is on June 22nd Ron: good stuff Judy: when is she done with work? OK Blue Jays: yes, she goes for good on the 21st Pamela: 16th is her last day OK Blue Jays: great idea, Meeka - I'll go get one too. brb Pamela: she is packing like crazy Ron: e-mail me one Ron: that's always fun
(goes to fetch his beer) Pamela: its gonna be bizarre Pamela: when we get home, she'll be gone
Ron created action P/the real dog Pamela: I will miss her like crazy
(A German Shepherd barks in the distance) Meeka: back Daniel Bienvenu: I did see some changes in gooddealgames web site. the list of coleco homebrew games are reorganized to include thos previously released under atariage web site. Pamela: I've loved having her here in T.O. for the last five years
(Go Cubs hands a diet coke to Pamela.)
(Pamela smiles) Pamela: actually a drink sounds good Pamela: brb OK Blue Jays: Rich-c hoists a glass of Sleeman's Fine Porter to Meera - cheers! Ron: My consumption of Diet Coke is now a thing of the past Ron: was causing too many digestive problems Daniel Bienvenu: still no jeepers creepers cartridges... even if Joe did say they will release a new batch. OK Blue Jays: really? what are you drinking now? Ron: water - cold - shaken, not stirred Judy: at least you have email and computer that you can talk to her, is not the same as face to face but better than nothing OK Blue Jays: I have always found that to be very good stuff, in fact it's my standard default beverage Ron: we're on a well here, and it's really really good Pamela: ahhh, sparkling lemonade Pamela: this is all Jillian's fault OK Blue Jays: nice pure aquifer down from teh mountain? Pamela: that's true Judy Pamela: and its not like she's moving to California Ron: yup - three gallons a minute Daniel Bienvenu: About Steve, I hope he will be back like at the time he did release lode runner and penguin land. I really hope to see him back in the coleco scene, finishing the games he wanted and be proud instead of feeling guilty of copyrights infragement. Pamela: Cleveland is not that far away (as Rich has proved) Ron: adequate for our needs, but I do have to make sure I don't leave the tap on like I used to when I was a city boy OK Blue Jays: it would be a lot closer if Obama smartened up and thinned the border a bit Judy: had to get Bob another phone he is talking to Doug on it and dumb thing was beeping Pamela: well it would still be 600 kms Dad OK Blue Jays: I don't think my long showers would fit that lifestyle, Ron Ron: exactly Rich. Have been told to shorten such activity. And being a good and dutiful husband, I obey OK Blue Jays: yes, but that bump on the way can slow you down unduly Pamela: what bump? the guys at the border never look at us Judy: he doesn't do anything to make things easy, Rich Pamela: of course, having said that, they will now take undue interest in us on the way to GR - you wait and see OK Blue Jays: the Canadian ones never look at us, but the American ones seem to think I'm Osama bin Laden OK Blue Jays: talk about paranoid! Judy: good for you, Ron Ron: :) Pamela: that would kill me, Ron LucMiron: @Daniel: Good Deal Games was supposed to release a new run of Jeepers Creepers? I didn't know that... Pamela: I love my long hot showers OK Blue Jays: you'd think after the embarrassment with Bush and Clinton he'd smarten up Pamela: (to my detriment most mornings ) Daniel Bienvenu: joe (Atariage Daniel Bienvenu: )< Daniel Bienvenu: did wanted Jeepers Creepers Ron: Not much of a sacrifice really Daniel Bienvenu: but it looks like atariage decided to let gooddealgames dealing with the coleco homebrew games OK Blue Jays: speak for yourself, young feller! Daniel Bienvenu: http://www.gooddealgames.com/inventory/Colecovision.html Ron: <grin> Pamela: although I must say, judicious application of CLR from time to time shortens things immensely Judy: we pay tooo much for our water so can't take long showers Ron: your water is metered Judy? Pamela: I am my father's daughter, apparently Ron: looks like it Pam Pamela: btw Dad, many thanks for getting the hinges. Much appreciated. Judy: we have city water and pay double what Grand Rapids does because we live in Kentwood Pamela: double??? Ron: ewww! Pamela: holy cow Judy: and buy from Grand Rapids OK Blue Jays: OK, you want to come fetch them or shall I just take them to GR? Daniel Bienvenu: you can see the Atariage logo on many of these coleco homebrew games in the gooddealgames web site... and at the same time you can see no updated data at atariage web site Pamela: just bring them to GR Pamela: after all, that's where my repair guru is : ) Daniel Bienvenu: so I guess there is potentially only one publisher instead of two.... concerning them. OK Blue Jays: the thought had occurred to me Pamela: just please, don't forget them Judy: yes, and he knows you are coming to have it fixed Pamela: he's my hero : ) OK Blue Jays: that thought had also occurredd to me - I'll warn your mother Pamela: put them on the list, or pack them in your computer case now Pamela: that way they're already packed OK Blue Jays: sonds simple, Pam, but isn't a lsam dunk, trust me Judy: put them in the suit case right away Meeka: (LOL...I should charge a doughnut fee for this) OK Blue Jays: but the will be packed in ample fullness of time Judy: for what? Pamela: I probably have enough American $$ for a donut : ) Meeka: no no no Ron: <grin> .... the ample fullness of time Ron: I love it! Meeka: tim hortons blueberry fritters Ron: In other words, when I ruddy well get around to it Pamela: ahhh Meeka: oops, thats my fav...doug would say apple OK Blue Jays: yes, there is much to be said for retirement - I recommend it to any young man Pamela: hard to find in GR?
moved to room Meeting Place Ron: was gonna say Meeka. Apple is better

Judy: we are going in January Ron: yeah, you guys get away from Florida eh?

OK Blue Jays: right, I don't think you even ever told us what her problem was, Guy Pamela: I understand that, James james: and since i only see them once a week, progress is slow. i'd like to find work where i get more.. tangible results james: but yeah, 10 years of this is more than enough and by the time i've finished it'll be 13 Pamela: so, does that mean going into the Japanese school system, or coming home and doing it here? james: time to make plans to move on and do something different Guy B: She's on oxygen and she had a sleep study done this week. Otherwise, she's doing better. She's going for some more tests to see what's going on OK Blue Jays: so what will be the next step, james? james: i'm self-employed out of my own little school house here and a place i rent about 1/2 hr from here james: i also visit a high school about an hour from here but i've had way more than enough of that and will not be renewing my contract in march OK Blue Jays: do they think sleep apnea might be a problem for her, Guy? james: next step.. not sure, but i've been banking and saving james: like mad OK Blue Jays: do you even know where it will be - Japan or Canada? Pamela: back to Canada, or stay in Japan? Pamela: (like I said, I am my fathers daughter) james: both options are being considered OK Blue Jays: I gather Jeanene has been having breathing problems then, Guy Judy: .. Pamela: where does Miyuki stand on it? james: she'd be quite happy to move back to canada Pamela: aren't her parents getting on in years though? james: and we may end up doing that for at least awhile to bolster the kids' english a bit OK Blue Jays: that makes quite a difference then, james james: early 60s. still quite capable of fending for themselves Guy B: It's been off and on for sometime Rich Pamela: what about your parents? james: they're similarly aged james: my mother is a bit younger OK Blue Jays: so Guy, they still don't know what'sd at the root of the problem?

Guy B: I'm planning to retire another desktop as I think it's at it's end. It's the Dell I got from work several years ago. I ended up reinstalling Win98, since Yahoo wanted to upgrade messenger and t got corrupted Judy: yes, Guy get it ready Dale: I have not Richard. rich-c: your main issue I suspect Guy will be having the wrong screen size Guy B: At least I can use the hard drives as external storage via USB for the others and I'm exploring getting another license for WinXP Pamela: I'm feeling like the end of the world is coming on July 1st rich-c: may I ask you to please do so, Dale? Your opinion is greatly needed Judy: it is what you do with it when it is retired that counts Guy B: I have a 15" monitor on that Dell rich-c: not great for a 1024 x 768 screen, then Guy B: It's on 800 x 600 rich-c: that seems to be a fading standard, much to the resentment of folks who can't afford a new computer every week Judy: you will make it Pam LucMiron: I have to go now. Good night! BobS: nite Luc Guy B: Night Luc Pamela: goodnight Luc Judy: night Luc rich-c: bonsoir, Luc! glad you could come by Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit Luc BobS: we gonna leave this humble abode also Guy B: Dell is selling an Ispiron 531 I believe with Windows XP Home for $249 Pamela: gnite Bob LucMiron: *Pooof!*

BobS left chat session Daniel Bienvenu: bye judy rich-c: wow, that thinned teh ranks quickly Daniel Bienvenu: who is next? Pamela: actually, probably me Pamela: I should go and converse with my hubby Pamela: good crowd tonite rich-c: I want to check and see if Dale has had time to read the mailing list Pamela: Dad, I'll try and check in tomorrow or Friday night rich-c: and if he has you may want to know his opinion too rich-c: OK, you know our plans, or lack of them Guy B: Well Rich, after reinstalling Win98. It got me thinking that it maybe time to retire the Dell desktop. So, I'm going to start backing my documents to another drive Pamela: Dale, Daniel, Guy - goodnight Pamela: goodnight, Daddy Guy B: Nite Pam rich-c: well, Guy, it works for you or it doesn't. If it does, keep it; if not, toss it. rich-c: do you have a Freecycle chapter in Chicago? rich-c: night, daughter Guy B: And there are no more software upgrades for Win98, but there are for WnXP and up Pamela: adios! Kerpoof
Pamela left chat session Dale: An interesting discussion on a system test unit rich-c: true but lots of the freebie software still works on 98, or you can convert to Linux Guy B: I think I'm going to have it recycled. The front panel is busted and I'm holding it with packing tape Dale: So although Dr D would be interested in it, it doesn't really appeal to me that much. Daniel Bienvenu: I still think it's to test video games and prototype softwares. Guy B: I have Xubuntu and FreeDOS on it, but I have both on the other desktops Dale: It looks to me like it is designed to do the QA step to test the Adam subsystems. rich-c: I think it would be worth some effort to keep it within the Adam community - your feelings Dale: A prototype expansion module wouldn't have all of those serial numbers on it. Guy B: And it's slow compared to my faster systems rich-c: your call, Guy - if it's busted that changes the scene Daniel Bienvenu: I certainly cannot help you about this auction rich-c: all you can do, Guy, is say if you wish it were available for you to examine Guy B: Well I'll weigh my options in the next few days Dale: RL Morgan positively identified it as a final test on the Adam, and it would have output diagnostic waveforms. Guy B: Anyway, I'm going to call it the night. Will see you all next week rich-c: OK Guy, talk to you next week - and get Jeanine on those websites I mentioned Dale: It would be, as Geoff summarized not useful, but interesting for a collector I guess. Guy B: Poof
Guy B left chat session rich-c: do post your judgment, Dale, the others will find it most useful Daniel Bienvenu: so it's to test what? a hardware or software part of the adam? rich-c: Dale, you feel it's sort of an analogue to the Final TEst cartridge? Daniel Bienvenu: I have to go... but I want the precision about this when it's confirmed Daniel Bienvenu: goodnight! Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit! rich-c: btw, Dale, if the seller is a self-proclaimed Adam enthusiasty in the Amsterdam area, I may have encountered him previously rich-c: bonne nuit, Daniel Daniel Bienvenu: only 2 weeks before the adamcon meeting... and I still have to work on my presentation. Daniel Bienvenu: I'm stressed now Daniel Bienvenu: what it will be in two weeks rich-c: bonne chance! just make it a good one! Daniel Bienvenu: it has to be a GOOD ONE? now I have a very big stress. Daniel Bienvenu: goodnight! Daniel Bienvenu: :-) rich-c: if so, Dale, he's a blowhard whose veracity I found highly questionable, shall we say rich-c: I would aslo have significant doubts about his accuracy
Daniel Bienvenu left chat session Dale: sure, I could do that Richard. rich-c: anyway, I do hjope you will post your opinion soon Dale: sure. rich-c: meanwhile, Jill and Jeff likely deserve your attention Dale: It is quite pleasing that there is an eprom in it that says "Tape Sim" Dale: I must admit. rich-c: so I think I'll drift away now rich-c: good night to you Dale: g'night
