changed username to Dale Dale: HI all BobS: hi dale rich-c: hello Dale, you're early BobS: well the weather is supposed to warm up on Fri thruMon rich-c: Geoffy fall asleep early? Dale: Well in theory if he's asleep at 9:15 then he'll concentrate better in school BobS: i can believe that Dale: Last night i let him sleep 11 hours, and his teacher sent home a note that he had a great day. rich-c: actually since Toronto has the enclosed stadium and Hamilton is playing in Winn ipeg, weatehr is less important rich-c: thaat is highly suggestive, Dale Dale: Talking football? BobS: only Richard rich-c: about to remark this weekend will be the last of the regular season BobS: me, the Detroit team SUCKS and there is no joy inthat Dale: Yes last week he stayed up late one night, and just wouldn't unwind no matter what we did, and his teacher sent home a note saying that he couldn't finish any of his work. rich-c: that's OK, Toronto will finish out 3-15 and miss the playoffs BobS: I have only a passing ear and eye to major league sports unless a local state team is any good BobS: at 3-15 they don't deserve playoffs Dale: So trying the other way also got results, so maybe I can get him more sleep, and it will be betterererer. ;-) rich-c: well I've never had any interest in basketball, and the Leafs cured me of hockey rich-c: I would say that is very likely, Dale BobS: see??? I am not the only one Dale: Well if the leafs finish at the bottom, then at least they get good draft picks. BobS: IF they know how to pick rich-c: yes, but they'll trade them away for instant saviours who promptly flame out Dale: but traditionally the finish in the top of the bottom third.
moved to room Meeting Place Dale: So they just never seem to get better.
changed username to guess who BobS: ok Daniel, CONFESS !!!!!! Dale: There was a massive expose on the whole topic in the Toronto Star last season. rich-c: I suspect Daniel has joined us
guess who changed username to Daniel Dale: "why the Leafs never get better" Daniel: How did you know? rich-c: yes, I read the Star, so I can't avoid the headlines - depressing as they may be Dale: Basically, the Leafs sell out no matter how they play, so it's the fans that are to blame was the newspaper's conclusion. BobS: seems like to bad and marginal pro teams alwasy pick the instant winner, then trade away.......instead of the slow and steady buildup of a team Daniel: did you all send a picture for the xmas disk? BobS: Daniel........we know EVERYTHING.....we are computer people, you know rich-c: Toronto teams have lotsd of tricks of that sort in their bag

Judy: sounds like big problems, Guy BobS: does not sound good man BobS: the new one is not of good quality??????? Guy B.: I mentioned this to my audiologist two weeks ago that I was having problems with one, now both are out BobS: good thing you can read ok Guy B.: lol Guy B.: Yeah, you could say that. Even Annie knows Judy: is that a huge issue at work, Guy? rich-c: she can tell you aren't hearing? Guy B.: Oh yes. Fortunately, I have a very understanding manager Judy: that's good Guy B.: She knows I'm frustrated, so she cuddles on me rich-c: the main point is going to be how fast you can get your replacement unit, Guy rich-c: just so she can still get your attention when she needs walkies, Guy Guy B.: It should be tomorrow. The new one's were ordered late Monday afternoon. She said 1 to 3 days for them to arrive at Loyola U. rich-c: they do the final tuning and programming at the University? Guy B.: That's where my map is. She has it on the computer over there. She has to transfer the map to the speech processor. rich-c: no backup copies of the map anywhere, in your hands? Guy B.: By the way. It was one year ago today that I activated the new processor rich-c: I remember - but it was really that long? how time does fly! Guy B.: So, this is my 4th speech processor and controllers that have been replaced. rich-c: ouch! Judy: sure is something what they can do medically these days

BobS: dea still richard BobS: dead BobS: have to wait for unemployment to start, then rest for a year Ron: You two don't deserve this at all Dale: Well I hope you find something better Bob. Dale: But I guess you'll have to keep your eyes peeled. rich-c: for no sensible reason, our housing market is hot and climbing - bidding wars are normal BobS: twoud be nice Dale, but I am looking at it realistically.....or pessimistically??????? Dale: I hear that construction in the US hasn't come back as fast as it seems to have in Canada. BobS: house sales are slowly rising, but actual construction is far behind BobS: unemployment is still rising here and especially in Michigan Judy: maybe there is hope that things will start to pick up around here Dale: Well for sure some of that you just have to wait out I guess. Ron: Our area, populated as it is with we greyhairs on pensions, is somewhat insulated for the moment at least BobS: Welch's graejuice plant here is on the chopping block according to today's news rich-c: yes, we have rising unemployment here adn will have it through next year, it seems Ron: and I love Welchs grape juice Dale: me too BobS: but housing construction is going nuts? rich-c: wow, they closed teh Canadian plant a yedar ago, left all the growers high and dry Ron: Dale got an ADAM question for you Judy: I think they said on the news tonight that this plant isthe biggest of their plants Dale: A what? Ron: Don't know if you've seen the message exchange between Geoff Oltmans and I Dale: Isn't the off topic? rich-c: well, housing sales are, even the McMansions in our neighbourhood Ron: but just lately I've been wishing for a re-write of Chris Braymen's Sequel Ron: that could be hacked so as not to look for the presence of a Midi Mite interface on startup Dale: Where is your midi mite? Ron: Geoff Oltmans says he thinks he can rewrite his ADAMem SDK to do it Dale: Hmm..I used to have some info for what ports the midimite uses on the Adam. Ron: Well, the last time I plugged in Old Adam, it blew the breakers here, and I haven't had the guts to try it since Ron: Sue was not pleased Dale: That does sound pretty drastic. Ron: What I'll do Dale is send you the message I sent to Geoff last night. I attached what tech info there was in the manual, plus pictures of the circuit card inners Ron: innards Dale: Well we could at least poke around in it a bit if you made a .DSK image of it. Ron: Yup, I have it. If you wouldn't mind having a look. Ron: Most interesting though, is that through Geoff, I have managed to have a bit of an exchange with Chris Braymen himself. He's fascinated to know that his software is still Ron: in use Dale: I have the original disks, but my PC that I use to convert Adam disks died a while ago. Ron: I'll fix that Dale Dale: Is Chris on Facebook somewhere? Ron: Actually what I wanted to do was use Sequel for midi file editing. It's easier to understand than some of the newer sequencers I have rich-c: I have two updates that are demanding a restart - excuse me a minute Dale: It was very good software.
rich-c left chat session Ron: sure was Dale: I used it for a live concert in 1992. Ron: I'll see if Chris has any objecting to your having his e-mail Dale. Can't see why not, but I guess I better check first. Dale: I had a singer singing one of Jillian's poems which I set to music. Ron: cool! BobS: Chris should be PROUD we are still using his programs BobS: I need to work with it more..........and learn it Ron: Proud, yes..... but mostly amazed Ron: he wanted to know what the emulator was all about BobS: great, tell him to come visit and don'tleave us altogether Ron: Well that's the whole thing Bob. As you know, I only use it once a year. Susan wanted to know what the heck I was spending so much time at BobS: we ARE a very tough bunch to get rid of you know.......and love our old computers Ron: And why anyone would want to mess with a computer that is more than 20 years old

changed username to Rich-c Ron: To which I said, "Woman, bite thine tongue!" BobS: just for FUN and the people involved BobS: now, now.......be nice to her Ronald Rich-c: aw, what did I just miss? Ron: Yeah, I told her about the fun part. She didn't get it Ron: I guess it looked like I wasn't having any fun BobS: we were talking about YOU richard Rich-c: figures Dale: The cursing is just part of the fun! Dale: lol Ron: yes, exactly Judy: ya, she doesn't know us yet Rich-c: I am suspicious - the Java update seems to have added an automatic update to my browser Ron: So anyway Dale, Geoff has so far at least got Sequel to load on his version of the emulator. But it won't read files yet or write to files....... it's a work in progress Rich-c: I do not like programs that update without asking me first Judy: I agree, Rich Ron: Actually, just for the record, it would be nice if ADAMem could output through a USB MIDI Interface Daniel: I've tried AdamBomb 2... i wonder if anybody did finish it... I can't, I'm stuck. Dale: Java spends a lot of time asking me. Ron: ya got that right Rich Dale: Well that doesn't sound impossible Ron.
moved to room Meeting Place Ron: I shall leave that hack for brighter minds than mine
changed username to PEV Judy: yes, I have Daniel Rich-c: that's been my state so far, but it seems to have slipped something by me just now Dale: But I need to get a USB -> MIDI cable I guess for next AdamCon to see if I can get it all working. Judy: where are you stuck? Rich-c: hi daughter PEV: hi everyone Judy: hi, Pam Dale: Daniel there was a patch you needed to apply to finish it. Ron: Actually, Chris said that he still has the Sequel source. Only trouble is it's on a backup disk made with Win32 backup utility, and he can't access it any more
moved to room Meeting Place Dale: But if you have the patched version, it is very possible to finish. Daniel: I did collect up to 99 bombs, talked to a person about a coin I should find, move around in a maze of arrows and the goal seems unreachable.
changed username to ColecoRox Ron: well..... I'll send you what I have Dale.. what's your e-mail Dale: It's firstname.lastname@example.org PEV: nice to see you Ron Judy: you have to get the keys for the doors and see what all the guys need but you can only carry 4things at a time Ron: right Dale.

Ron: hopefully I'll be able to stay longer next week Rich-c: we tend to use thingsg a bit more advanced that that, Rox, but you're on the right track BobS: ok ron be good PEV: which I found when tidying the bedroom the other day Dale: But the bug that I talked about was with the babys, and you clearly didn't get anywhere near that far. Daniel: bonsoir Ron, later! Ron: email@example.com Rich-c: you using a real Adam or the Emulator? Ron: nite all
Ron left chat session ColecoRox: ok,i must be on the wrong site,someone told me that this is a coleco user group and am looking for people who collect and trade coleco cabbage patch kids,the ones from the 1980s. Rich-c: OK Ron, all my sympathy to Susan - I've been there adn remember Judy: night Ron Daniel: I'm using adamem... it's an image disk I have. Daniel: I've pressed F9 for joystick and play BobS: we ARE a coleco group ColecoRox, but witht he Coleco ADAM computer not cabbage patch dolls Rich-c: ahy, the toys not teh computer or game unit Judy: what you have to do is empty each room and you will find many things hidden in them you need boots and a shield ColecoRox: i remember the adam,there was a cabbage patch game on it,sorry to have been a bother,i hope you guys find what u are looking for,i hear they are very hard to find these days those adam computers PEV: we're always happy to have people drop by, ColecoRox PEV: it's never a bother BobS: Daniel has the latest version of ADAMBOMB2, cause I gave it to him Rich-c: no, they are easy to come by BobS: naw Rox, there are more ADAM computers out there than you can believe Rich-c: we talk about Colecovision games too Dale: if 0 doesn't work, try # or * or 5. BobS: and most other things get talked about also PEV: yes, we pretty much run the gamut : ) BobS: tell lus more about your collection Rox ColecoRox: i'm not much of a computer fanatic,more into collectible figurines,dolls,etc,but I understand the interest one may have,g'night and thank you for putting me onthe right track Daniel: I guess it's 0, yes. it jumps me at the starting, at the cost of a life I guess Rich-c: well, we really aren't very deep in wading pools... PEV: best of luck! Dale: I thought there were unlimited lives. Dale: But you lose all of your items maybe. Dale: And have to collect them up again.

changed username to Guy F. Guy F.: Hi PEV: hi Guy! Rich-c: hey, it's the Foz! PEV: long time no see Judy: hi, GuyF Dale: Yes, I have the Cabbage Patch Kids game. Dale: It's pretty good. PEV: what's new Guy? Guy F.: Yeah, I was away for 2 months, I was taking a class at my community college and would end at 10:30 PM every Wednesday, so made it hard to chat. :) PEV: aside from Sam : ) Daniel: Who doesn't have the Caabage Patch Kids game... well, I didn't had one in the 80s but I had one in the 90s. Guy F.: My course finished tonight, and got off early, so I'm back. Rich-c: that definitely cut down on the opportunities, for sure Judy: well, glad you are back with us and how did you do on your class? Rich-c: I think I have the game, not sure - a boxed cart, isn't it? Judy: we have the game Guy F.: Hmmm, I think I did alright, we had our final exam tonight and shall get my result in the mail eventually. Dale: I've seen the box. A CBS one I think. Tan in color. PEV: what class were you taking? Dale: I don't think I have the box though. Judy: good for you Guy F.: I took a TIG welding class. Dale: Nice. I only know MIG welding. Rich-c: that's one of those skills that's real easy - after you learn every little detail Guy F.: Similar, but more precise and more complex. PEV: what are MIG and TIG welding and what are the differences? Rich-c: one of my cursor cronies was talking about it - he is building himself a classin Lincoln limo Guy F.: TIG is used for aerospace manufacturing, easy to weld many different types of metals, including stainless steel and aluminum. Guy F.: The welds are very beautiful if you're good at it, so if having nice welds counts, you use TIG. Guy F.: New high end bicycle frames for example are TIG welded. Dale: MIG is lower temperature and really only works with steel and a few other things. Dale: My MIG welding rig I have at work was about 1/5th the cost of a nice TIG system. Guy F.: Welding aluminum is much easier and nicer with TIG I hear. Rich-c: that's it - a couple of our guys were having quite a discussion about it Guy F.: Yes, MIG Is much more affordable, that's true, a TIG basic unit is in the 2K+ Guy F.: Miller Dynasty series. Rich-c: fortunately, my buddy is not pressed for cash Guy F.: Well, I've TIGged (welded using TIG) steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Guy F.: TIG requires lots of skills, while MIG, you can achieve something pretty decent with minimum fuss. Guy F.: If I buy a welder, it will be a MIG. :) Guy B.: Ok back. I put the iPod Nano up on ebay. Seems I have a bidding war on it. It's presently at $25 with 13 hours left to go PEV: I thought it didn't work? Guy F.: Nano with the camera or the older model? Guy B.: I also have four other computer items. No bids on those Dale: For my robots, steel is a pretty heavy material, so I haven't been using it much lately. Guy B.: Second generation Guy F.: Yeah, steel IS heavy, aluminum would be a better choice. Guy F.: Aluminum is tricky to weld. :) Dale: For sure. Guy B.: It won't with the USB cable. Might work when it's charged up Dale: So mostly we use bolts with aluminum. Guy F.: You need to apply varying current for aluminum, when it gets too hot, the metal just puddles and you need to let go off the pedal that controls the current a little bit. Guy F.: PEV: I don't recognize yar name? PEV: sorry Guy forgot you haven't been here for a while - its me, Pam Guy F.: Indeed, haha, not used to PEV. Rich-c: she does it to confuse people ; - ) PEV: started using the initials a few weeks ago after we had an obnoxious visitor Guy F.: But the interaction I had with PEV felt like the interaction I usually have with Pam, so I Could have guessed. :) Guy F.: ahhhh, well, it confused me, sorta! PEV: this way those who know me know who I am and those who don't can't guess at gender Judy: that person sure made an impression on you and Daniel Rich-c: the pity is that Ron was here earlier but had to leave just before you came Guy F.: Daniel, hi, how r u? Judy: and not a good one at that PEV: I felt targeted Judy PEV: and I don't like that Rich-c: well we got rid of him easily, just kept booting him Judy: what did he do? PEV: we're so comfortable with one another Guy F.: You could have chosen an even more obscure name, like Ralph or Edward or some other male name. :) Rich-c: just came in and starting behaving like a jerk PEV: well I do want those who know me to know who I am : ) Guy F.: Spamela, that would have confused the jerk, and we could still know its you. :d PEV: he was misogynistic and threatening Judy Guy F.: boot him!!! PEV: yeah, but that takes too long to type! Guy F.: Spam? Rich-c: exactly what we did - several times Rich-c: he kept trying to come back BobS: whas dat??????? Guy F.: is there no way to block new people from coming in before getting approved? Rich-c: we have never needed one, Guy Rich-c: we don't even officially have a moderator PEV: in all these years, that's the first time we've ever had someone so totally obnoxious Guy F.: well, if I recall, 3 or 4 months ago thre was some sort of loser here as well, not threating but annoying as hell, had bad english, etc.... Dale: I could make people register. Judy: that George was upsetting but he quit coming Dale: But in 4 years I've only had 2 unpleasant visitors. Rich-c: not worth the effort, Dale, and could discourage the odd shy recruit PEV: after Dr. D told him off (go Rich!) Judy: he was the pits Rich-c: I though Rich was considerably crueller than necessary, imho Judy: has anyone talked to Dr D? PEV: well he wasn't taking gentle hints, Dad Rich-c: not for quite a while, Judy: thats for sure PEV: I get one sentence messages from both Drushels from time to time Judy: how are they doing? PEV: and I see the stuff Erin posts on Facebook BobS: THA WAS ME !!!!!well tell them to make it two sentence messages Rich-c: they are on Facebook, aren't they? PEV: Erin is BobS: he did get into the email message a few weeks ago, did he not? PEV: I believe so PEV: I've been out of my e-mail for a couple of weeks with a server problem PEV: which reminds me - must call John and figure out why I'm suddenly not connecting to the e-mail server PEV: BRB Rich-c: our email has been coming through fine - had 95 bloody spams today BobS: you getting a lot of spam also, eH? BobS: drives me nuts Rich-c: remember I have one of the oldest email addresses around Daniel: *working on picture for xmas disk, sorry to be quiet* Rich-c: the filters on Tamco and in Mailwasher don't seem to work very well PEV: until recently, we've not had a lot of trouble with spam on our Tamco account Rich-c: well as you know we have had our account since the year dot, it's all over the web PEV: that's why I use my g-mail account for most things PEV: I don't give out my Tamco address to many Rich-c: and in the early Netscape days I didn't know enough to be careful as I am now BobS: use mailwasher religiouslyu BobS: deletes lots of carap BobS: crap Rich-c: my copy is the old edition and identifies spam but that's it PEV: I never had a lot of luck with Mailwasher Rich-c: can't seem to get it to delete it or even identify it from the subject line PEV: half the time it hung on me, and I lost more than one message that way Rich-c: actually tehre re ways around that but they are tedious Judy: we use it all the time Rich-c: which edition? BobS: sent whole hog and gave the guy 30 bucks for allupdates and working edition PEV: well that would explain it PEV: I had the free version Rich-c: OK, you are using the paid edition - I have not tried that, the shareware isn't impressive PEV: apparently you have to pay to have the bugs removed : ) BobS: got version 6.0 Rich-c: I will have to get a better spam filter - love to know what Google uses Rich-c: we never get spam on gmail, and very few errors Rich-c: haven't had time to download and test teh newer ones yet BobS: bummer PEV: how do you test without risk though? Dale: I'm falling alseep, so maybe I'd better sign off. Dale: Goodnight. Rich-c: well, unless you have Sandboxie or something similar, you dont PEV: nght Dale Rich-c: OK Dale, take care and good night BobS: nnite Dale Rich-c: you just deal with reliable sources and read teh reviews before downloading
Dale left chat session Daniel: bye Dale Daniel: oops, too late Rich-c: gotta be quicker, Daniel Daniel: GuyF : Je vais bien, quoi que fatigue et mal de tete. PEV: Dad, while I think of it, I have a doctor's appointment Friday afternoon so will probably come by either before or after to drop the trailer keys to you Rich-c: OK, good time, if you have the coffee bring that too PEV: no coffee yet but if you need it I can pick it up Friday morning Rich-c: ask when teh old folks shots will be ready too - we've had teh regular flu shots PEV: I can do that : ) Rich-c: no big deal unless you're shopping anyway - got a week or two left yet BobS: wwe are starting to see the end of the flu here........only 2 schools Mon & Tues.......none tomorrow Rich-c: oh, and any determinations about Christmas yet? Rich-c: I don't think e have had any schools close, at least none have made the news PEV: just tentative PEV: looks like Lindsay may have it BobS: Christmas is Dec 25th Richard Rich-c: if they have it, I'd kind of like to get that pretty bottle Reisling we had last year Daniel: I didn't phone yet to the hotel. I must admit that each time I did think of it I didn't have the phone number. dale want to talk about the organisation and everything for adamcon next year, but I'm not ready. PEV: make the call Daniel Rich-c: you have a fair bit of slack yet, Daniel - put more time into planning the program PEV: it's never too early Rich-c: yes, the more slack you have, it's true the easier it stays BobS: early planning makes for an easier and more relaxing time later on......... Rich-c: that's why I'm asking Pam about Christmas - so the wine I want doesn't sell out PEV: not to mention June is wedding season and they book up early BobS: AND the hotel may be hungry to book a small group into the hotel and give you a good price BobS: plenty of wine to gao around I amsure richard Guy B.: Never too early to start looking Rich-c: yes, we're easy to manage - everywhere we go they want us back Rich-c: true Bob but not necessarily a particular special one I want Rich-c: the wine is routinely good, but the bottle is very festive BobS: don't hurt to get it early PEV: I saw the royal motorcade this afternoon BobS: buy TWO and have a party Rich-c: oh, were they here today? PEV: Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are in town for at least another few days Rich-c: I'm not sure, Bob taht these are regular stock, seasonal only then gone is gone Rich-c: and I am likely to buy more than too - it's a busy season Rich-c: just finished buying two dozen red wines PEV: guess I know what you're getting for Christmas, Dad : ) BobS: AMEN BobS: prince Charles & the duchess?????????? Rich-c: qwell, as long as Gord Stimmell rates it a 90 or above, that's fine Rich-c: heir to the throne and his wife Rich-c: you can get suggestions on the Star website BobS: naw, they will skip over him and go to William PEV: unless he abdicates, Charles will be the next king Rich-c: that depends - it is Charles who gets to make the choice Rich-c: we suspect he will reign for a while then abdicate in favour of his son BobS: just to get the taste of being king???? Rich-c: no, the royals have a very strong sense of duty - he will feel he has to do it Rich-c: just like his mother - she could step aside and take it easy as Queen Mother, but won't Rich-c: actually that wouldn't be her title sincwe she is a queen regnant, so just remains Queen Rich-c: anyway she is not about to walk away from her job and that is it PEV: and since the Bowes-Lyon line is verrrry long lived, I suspect it's gonna be a while Judy: how old is she? Rich-c: I think 83 Rich-c: her sister qwas born the day before me, but died several years ago PEV: I didn't know that Dad Rich-c: yes, Margaret was born Aug. 21st, 1930 Rich-c: if only I had hurried it along just a little... PEV: LOL Rich-c: of course she could have waited a bit, too, but you don't ask royals to do things like that PEV: if HM had only known . . . Rich-c: I think we just lost Guy Foster Daniel: yes Guy B.: Well folks, Annie will be going out soon.
