changed username to VE2HVZ - GuyF VE2HVZ - GuyF: Greetings rich-c: good evening, GuyF rich-c: didn't know you were a radio ham VE2HVZ - GuyF: Sure am! rich-c: they are, I fear, a dying breed rich-c: don't see many new towerwss going up these days VE2HVZ - GuyF: Yes, unfortunately, wish I joined years ago... feel like I missed out on something, but we still have a nice group in Montreal called the MARC which is an English speaking Amateur Radio group, which holds monthly meetings, with a nice turnout. rich-c: half a century ago I used to hang with VE3BIF Jr,, also knew VE3AQQ VE2HVZ - GuyF: Never thought of getting into that hobby Rich? VE2HVZ - GuyF: These days with the Internet, you don't even have to buy equipment to go on the air! rich-c: not in the last half century - I'm not that great a techie, anyway, and don't ask me to learn to send and receive in code VE2HVZ - GuyF: Hahaha, no need for that anymore. CW operators are a dying breed indeed, most HAMS these days shy away from code. rich-c: back at my "get in time", those were the requirements rich-c: and you generally built your own transmitter and much of your own tower VE2HVZ - GuyF: They abolished the CW requirements even to get into the high frequency bands a few months ago... back then the only way to get on 30MHz and lower was with morse code credentials. Not anymore.

Only have a 500 though. rich-c: for you Bob, not necessarily for me - they say 6 - 8" BobS: YIKES......tis maybe true....the east half of MI is expecting 4-6" rich-c: Frances has an upgraded 500, an origina; 2000 with hard disc, and a 3000 which she uses VE2HVZ - GuyF: Woohoo, time to take out the snowshoeing equipment! VE2HVZ - GuyF: Rich: Very nice. I have an Amiga monitor here, would love to get an Amiga 600 or 1200 if I ever have the chance. rich-c: I believe it will be coming in on an east or southeast wind so this time it's us get the lake effect BobS: so leave early for hospital and stay late........ rich-c: Guy, take this address: email@example.com - he is on the TPUG executive rich-c: say I suggested you write to him and tell him you want a 600 or 1200 VE2HVZ - GuyF: Oh, very nice!

AWESOME! rich-c: and I believe Ernie (Chorny) has an Ada though he doesn't use it VE2HVZ - GuyF: I still use my Commodore 64 once in a while... VE2HVZ - GuyF: I'm Adamless now, I ended up giving the whole Adam kit to Dale for historical preservation purposes. rich-c: well, the ranks of TPUG are thin (like Adam) but they still exist - once they were teh world's largest user group! VE2HVZ - GuyF: I could imagine, back in the 80s Commodore was strong, even Atari. I was member of MACAM, an Atari user group, and man, we had like 50-60 members show up each meeting. Those were the days.

VE2HVZ - GuyF: Would you be jealous of yourself is you saw yourself with your wife? (!!!???) rich-c: besides, it's an extra mouth to feed - and who'd drive the van? james: i could split my earache in half :D BobS: oh, doubles don't eat or eye the wife rich-c: oh, after half a century of marriage I think I'm beyond that - barely, but beyond BobS: they just perform duties to get you caought up BobS: caught james: there we go james: now it's just me james: no zombies rich-c: ah, definitely reduces the crowding - but now, where's teh rest of teh gang? rich-c: Guy and Pamela and Danie, at least should be in by now rich-c: maybe GuyB is already snowbound?

(VE2HVZ - GuyF hugs Pamela) rich-c: we're in line for 6 to 8 inches tomorrow and into Friday Pamela: well, thank you, but what did I do to deserve this? rich-c: it will likely involve an east wind so our side of the lake will get the lake effect snow VE2HVZ - GuyF: Pam: Just trying out the action commands! ;) Pamela: ah, okay

Guy B.: Yep Pamela: smart dog VE2HVZ - GuyF: Rich: Goodyear Icetrac Guy B.: She loves it. rich-c: yes, your cat prefers laps, right?

(VE2HVZ - GuyF gives Dr. D. a can of Coke) rich-c: OK - I got Nokians, can't speel the model name Dr. D.: This thing is pretty impossible to login to tonight. Guy B.: By the way, I've printed two photos of Abby. Pamela: hey, Rich! rich-c: hey, Dr. D. has joined us - that's been a while Guy B.: Hi Dr. D. Dr. D.: Keeps sending "applet not initialized" errors, all 3 browsers. BobS: the good doktor Dr. D.: I am home from the lab, late, eating supper. VE2HVZ - GuyF: Dr. D: Use Windows! ;) Guy B.: You need the new version of Java. Dr. D.: This is exam week (and next). Pamela: I just kept getting bumped off Tamco Pamela: must be Exploder Dr. D.: MacOS X for me Pamela: any snow yet Rich? Dr. D.: Exploder would not connect, nor Firefox, nor Safari, but about 3rd retry of Safari it did. Dr. D.: On the ground, fair amount, but none actively falling for a few days. Dr. D.: Hi all BTW rich-c: my DSL line is holding perfectly, and I've had no net bothers today either - been on since 4 p.m. Pamela: well it's holding now, so I'm wondering if it was my mail Dr. D.: My net.access is fine, Richard, it just did not want to connect to adamcon.org. Dr. D.: Got to backup chat server first try, no problem, but nobody was there, so I figured it was working for the rest of you. rich-c: that is strange - I've been having no trouble at all, and minimal bumps Dr. D.: It's only fair it finally works for you now Richard :-) Pamela: so it's your fault, Dad Pamela: brr, is cold back here Dr. D.: Usually he is crashing and we are steady, turnabout is fair play. Guy B.: I had that problem too with one of the Dells. I updated Java with the latest version and it worked. I have to do the same to the other computer. The Athlon works fine with an older version I installed last year. Dr. D.: Plenty steam heat here, so I am fine. Guy B.: Dr. D, how much snow did you get last week? Pamela: the whole apartment is cold, but it's coldest back here rich-c: yes, teh building structures are now getting chilled through, makes places much colder when walls are freezing Pamela: this room gets the least heat and the least cooling Dr. D.: There is about 6 inches lying on the ground, on average, not counting drifts. Guy B.: You got less than I did. 10 inches here. Dr. D.: I hope Rin doesn't freeze on the way home on the bus tonight, Pam. Guy B.: Guess you all heard about the accident at Midway airport last week. rich-c: you folks will get off much easier than we will tomorrow and Friday - we get the lake effect and we're further north Pamela: she'll be fine Rich - one thing the TTC doesn't skimp on is heat on the buses Guy B.: Don't tell that to Bob, Rich. rich-c: yeah, you had someone land on a length of runway that wasn't there, right? Pamela: and it's only a block from the corner. Have you talked to her in the last hour? BobS: they wanted to use the city streets richard Dr. D.: No I haven't Pam; I just got home about 15 minutes ago. rich-c: yes, they have no runoff area at Midway - through teh fence and into the city Guy B.: The plane crashed through a wall and crushed two cars in the middle of 55th and Central Ave. A 6 year old boy died from his injuries in his parents car. rich-c: land on the numbers or forgrt about it Dr. D.: Haven't talked to her since 5:40 PM. BobS: THAT is the sad part of the whole thing Pamela: I'm just waiting for her to turn up - she has to give me a cheque. She did say it would be late. Dr. D.: She was telling me 10:30 PM, but her estimates are sometimes wonky. Guy B.: They now believe that the pilot violated the airline's rule with using autobraking on landing and the pilot had trouble using the reverse thrusters which slows the plane upon landing. Dr. D.: Last night was supposed to be "early" and it was 11 PM. Pamela: it'll depend on when the party ends rich-c: yes, when teh Air France Airbus goofed at Pearson, the whole aircraft burned but there were no significant casualties Dr. D.: They need no-living zones around airports... Pamela: the problem is, airports start out in the middle of nowhere but don't stay that way Guy B.: It maybe a year before we find out what really happened. BobS: trouble is Dr D, the airport may be in the outskirts, but town builds up around it BobS: have the same problem coming here in GR rich-c: Christmas parties with political workers, when an election's on? Forget ANY scheduling Pamela: once upon a time, Pearson was practically in another time zone. Now there are people living right around it. Guy B.: O'Hare is in better shape, since they have longer runways, but Midway is different. Dr. D.: That's what I mean, don't build so close to the airport... Dr. D.: Probably next thing will be eminent domain to clear it back. rich-c: and complaining about teh noise of the aircraft, which has been there since before 1938 I know for sure Guy B.: Midway was built before O'Hare was. Dr. D.: All they need do is say "security" and it will happen. Dr. D.: Rin promised she was not going to schmooze too much, Richard.

changed username to Round Ron Dr. D.: Skeptical or not, it is the line that will be used, Richard. james: good day Round Ron: Yo! Dr. D.: Hi Ronald. Guy B.: Hi Ron. Pamela: greetings, Ron rich-c: well, the West Coast joins in - greetings Round Ron: all are well? Pamela: a bit chilly, thank you : ) BobS: US security SUCKS.....they need to get a life and profile and ge thuman Dr. D.: I think I am, except for end-of-semester exam madness. Round Ron: we got that here too, but no more snow rich-c: let you know when I hear from the doctors BobS: Hey Ron.........love the Dec disk Round Ron: you gotta mark 'em eh? Dr. D.: Better to not p.o. half the world so they aren't motivated to do bad things...then they won't need "security"...can Dr. D.: can't stop a dedicated-enough zealot with a backpack bomb. Round Ron: Great Bob....glad it got there in one piece Dr. D.: And I don't want to live for long in the fascist state that thinks it can clamp down enough to do it. Round Ron: interesting point of view BobS: NOW, go to my ann website, download the Dec christmas disk and run it in ADAM emulator Round Ron: will do sir BobS: great thing the Ronald dude made !!!!!!!!!!1 rich-c: so when are you moving up here, Rich? end of this semester or next?

(Pamela gives rich-c a nice tall frosty Guinness)
(Guy B. gives BobS a can of cranberry soda) BobS: http://ann.hollowdreams.com Dr. D.: Before I forget...while Christmas shopping today, I saw a bunch of head-to-head video games with the brand name COLECO on them. BobS: click on the ANN disks link and get it Dr. D.: AFAIK these have nothing to do with anything Coleco ever put out. Round Ron: right Guy B.: Oh yes, I should have mentioned that too. But, they are NOT the Colecovision games though. BobS: just depends on WHO owns the name now doc Dr. D.: Also some multi-game cubes to plug into your TV, but the screen shots are not ColecoVision games. Dr. D.: They were sports themes, but definitely not SuperAction Football/Baseball etc. Dr. D.: The resolution looked more 1990 than 1984. Guy B.: Looks like some early games before the ColecoVision. Dr. D.: We had a Coleco TelStar system when I was a kid, it looked nothing like the stuff I saw today. Round Ron: Remember "Head to Head" series being advertised the year before I got the ADAM Dr. D.: Then maybe it is their stuff. Dr. D.: Or some simulacrum. Round Ron: There was Head to Head Football, I remember Dr. D.: At least the Namco game cubes have a 6502 in them and the real arcade image ROMs in them...

Round Ron: give you somethin for the Jan disk
Guy B. confirmed ban
BobS confirmed ban Dr. D.: The other names are still showing up in my list here Richard. Dr. D.: Maybe they are just away from their terminals. Round Ron: With all this talk of Diet Coke, gotta go get me one.... BRB BobS: oh for crying out loud Ronald !!!!!! and I never got it???? Round Ron: no, because I never sent it Guy B.: Bring us all one. BobS: good Dr. D.: Diet Coke, pah. Guy B.: Speaking of disks. Created 3 CD's of Christmas music from cassette tapes and worjing on a fourth. BobS: go here....http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0009VRR74/qid=1134615815/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_1/103-3276114-6102266?v=glance&s=videogames&n=507846 Dr. D.: Real Coke with cane sugar, no high-fructose corn syrup :-) Round Ron: Cans of Diet Coke circulating from the west rich-1: yeah, what this world needs is more good Canadian stout BobS: and check out the NEW coleco offering slated to go onsale Dec 26 Dr. D.: More stout Canadians? Pamela: no we have enough of those already rich-1: speaking of which, it's time I went and fetched mine Round Ron: So, did anybody buy an XBOX 360 yet? Dr. D.: <looking at Bob's link> Guy B.: Are you kidding! Dr. D.: Only if it has an IBM 360 in it :-) Pamela: sheesh, I sent him his Guinness ten minutes ago. Obviously not paying attention Dr. D.: The thing in that link is what I saw at WalMart today Bob. Dr. D.: Wait, no. Dr. D.: The head-to-head had the same color scheme though, red and white. Guy B.: The only new thing I'll going to buy next year is a new notebook. Dr. D.: Retract again, I *DID* see this at WalMart. Dr. D.: The sports games...resolution no way is ColecoVision. Dr. D.: Wonder whose games they really were? BobS: wonder who has the coleco rights nowadays Dr. D.: Or did they write new ones with retro graphics and slap COLECO on them? Round Ron: Think I might go for a laptop instead of a desktop.... we'll see what the new product year brings Round Ron: my son is counselling patience Dr. D.: I would never buy a desktop again unless there was hardware that needed to plug into an expansion slot for some kind of lab equipment. Round Ron: agree Dr. D Dr. D.: Laptop is too convenient, too powerful. Dr. D.: But I am not a gamer, the gamers want super video stuff, 1 GB VRAM etc. rich-1: yes, the way computer prices are dropping now, by March they'll be paying you to take them away Round Ron: Besides, I just bought a Nikon D50 digital cam Guy B.: My laptop is beginning to fall apart. Already got a hole below the screen. Round Ron: Merry Christmas, to me Guy B.: The thing is still running. Dr. D.: Once LCD screens get to a certain cheapness level, glass CRTs will go, and with them, most desktops. Dr. D.: Not quite there yet, but close. Pamela: I'm hoping the cost of laptops will continue to fall rich-1: I am finding using the keyboard on a laptop - ANY laptop - rather awkward and uncomfortable Guy B.: I cannot use the built-in trackball, so I have an external PS/2 mouse hooked up to it. Dr. D.: That is why I bought a full-sized wireless keyboard for mine, Richard. rich-1: partly because the keyboard is different, part because my fingers can't spell Round Ron: I now have a real geek setup with the Duron. Buddy of mine brought over a box of stuff he no longer wanted, and in there was a Benq 15 in LCD monitor Dr. D.: And external wireless mouse. Dr. D.: That way, it *IS* my desktop at work. Round Ron: my video card will feed 2 monitors, so now I've got stereo Dr. D.: And this 17" Powerbook screen is as big as any desktop I had back in the day. Round Ron: Well that's it Dr. D.... I'm looking at the G4 iBooks Guy B.: I maybe able to get a Dell notebook with an employee discount through work. Round Ron: maybe by the time I get there they'll be G5 rich-1: yes, my laptop has the 15.4" widescreeen - not fond of some of the distortions that occur, though Round Ron: Have noticed the price of laptops starting to drop here rich-1: the card layout in free cell gets all scrunched up in teh top part of the "table" Dr. D.: I am spoiled with this laptop, if I have to use a "normal" 15" screen, it feels cramped. Dr. D.: How do you mean distortion Richard? Round Ron: yeah Dr. D. that was a pretty nice unit that one rich-1: hell, I only have a nominal 17" (ergo actual 15") CRT on my desktop Dr. D.: It was worth scavenging office furniture from a condemned campus building to sink all my moving allotment into it :-) Guy B.: They are now below $1000. Wal-Mart had a after Thanksgiving sale on HP's. But only 32 per store at $399. All were gone in minutes. Round Ron: nice work Dr. D.: This one is true 17" Richard. rich-1: because of teh odd shape and size of teh screen some things dont display optimally Dr. D.: 1440 x 900 pixels Dr. D.: I see. Round Ron: Mal Wort not selling computers yet here on the Island rich-1: we have laptops here - new - going at $699 up Dr. D.: And with LCD, there is no "vertical size" adjustment. rich-1: in desktops Dell was offering one today with XP and monitor for $399 Canadian Round Ron: a write-up I read recently said to be wary of the low end of the laptop price scale Dr. D.: I put $3K into the Dell laptop I got Christina for college...maxed it out, hoping it would still be usable 4 years hence. Guy B.: Dell had one for $599. Dr. D.: M$ software still brings it to a crawl, but what else is new. Round Ron: t'was ever thus Pamela: so why did you get her a Windows computer Rich, if you're really gone on the Mac? Dr. D.: Mercyhurst IT officially WILL NOT SUPPORT ANYTHING BUT WinXP Pro. rich-1: actually I think it's I have it at 1078 x 768 nominal, but it goes to 1280 or more actual Dr. D.: And I did not want to be remote IT for Christina. Pamela: ah Dr. D.: She is not enough computer-savvy to take the risk with a Mac. rich-1: written by a seller of high-end laptops, Ron? Round Ron: Would have thought she would have had an easier time with the Mac,,, but then I suppose there's be no support around Dr. D.: There are people with Macs there, especially among faculty, for IT for students is Win-only. Round Ron: it was actually in PC Magazine Rich Dr. D.: That last sentence should have read: rich-1: I aam still trying to learn XP - so far I don't like it Round Ron: they tend not to care much for the cheap stuff Pamela: Russell got M&Ms in my icecream Dr. D.: There are people with Macs there, especially among faculty; but IT for students is Win-only. Dr. D.: eXtremely Painful :-) rich-1: no, the techies can get rather snooty about low-end anything Round Ron: pity....they know not what they do Dr. D.: I am eating Christmas cookies baked for me by the co-directors of the Film Society. Dr. D.: I found the plate sitting outside my office door, with a note. Round Ron: hey..... fax me one Round Ron: please Dr. D.: These are probably bad for your metabolism, Ron. rich-1: yes, acer, hp and compaq all have offerings below $1000, more than satisfactory Pamela: of course some would argue he got ice cream on my M & Ms Round Ron: everything is bad for my metabolism Dr. D.: I won't be able to eat anything myself until supper tomorrow :-) Dr. D.: I can't eat the last cookie...it is a snowman Dr. D.: With a big yellow scarf. Round Ron: well certainly not Pamela: fax it to Ron, Rich Dr. D.: The scarf is yellow transparent gel icing, it will get the document glass all icky. Round Ron: my cousin back east - the retired MD - said, basically if something tastes good, spit it out Dr. D.: It is too thick to fit into the DVD drive. rich-1: you folks are a bad influence - now I want another beer Dr. D.: Yikes Dr. D.: Drive him home, Pamela :-) Pamela: are you kidding? I'm high on sugar! rich-1: didn't say I was going to have one, just that I wanted it Round Ron: In Heaven, there is no beer; that's why we drink it here rich-1: and besides, I'm at home anyway - just don't have another on ice Dr. D.: Have another Richard, it's not like you have to punch the time clock tomorrow :-) Round Ron: exactly Dr. D.: Put it out on the front porch. Dr. D.: It will be icy in a flash. Pamela: why couldn't you crave sweets like the rest of us humans, Dad? rich-1: yeah, that would do it up pretty good Dr. D.: Natural cold Round Ron: Today I heard the results of yet another study Dr. D.: In winter here the kids hang stuff out their dorm windows in lieu of fridges. rich-1: you' ve never seen my approach to a dish of ice cream? Round Ron: Chocolate is a very effective stress reliever Dr. D.: It binds to the opiate receptors in the brain. Round Ron: recommended that we all eat chocolate every day Dr. D.: That is why it is addictive. Pamela: I'm all for that assessment Dr. D.: Well, in the Harry Potter universe, chocolate is medicine. Round Ron: and..... this just in rich-1: also is said to have a cweertain aphrodisiac effect... Pamela: and so it should be Round Ron: Fibre in one's diet does very little to prevent colo-rectal cancer Round Ron: as previously believed Dr. D.: Hehe, what is the recommendation now? james: chocolate is good rich-1: if the "little" effect is enough to spare me, I'll take it Dr. D.: Chocolate Ex-Laxx Round Ron: they were silent on that.... (this mornings Victoria Times-Colonist) rich-1: besides, I tend to like fairly high-fibre foods Dr. D.: Which is no longer sold here... Pamela: although, I must admit that when totally stressed out at work like I was today, I am much more likely to be heard muttering " I need a drink" than "I need chocolate" Dr. D.: The active ingredient in Ex-Laxx, phenolphthalein, was determined to be some carcinogen. Pamela: and I'm not a drinker! Round Ron: sometimes I think researchers are plotting against us Round Ron: just to confuse all rich-1: no, too many kids were mistaking it for candy Dr. D.: Not even the white pills are phenolphthalein any more, Richard. rich-1: and in America, "parental supervision" is becoming a non-PC utterance Dr. D.: At least not here. Dr. D.: So they still sell Ex-Laxx, but they put some other purgative in it, senna I think. Dr. D.: Which is a nice poison... rich-1: I have never used the stuff hence couldn't care less Round Ron: One of our interns at Valleylinks produced a video presentation on keeping your kids safe on the net Round Ron: scary stuff Dr. D.: My Grandma Drushel lived on it for years...so of course she couldn't go any more without laxatives. rich-1: the video or teh inattentiveness of the parents to it? Round Ron: was a little of both Rich - the young lad did a super job rich-1: that would make it plenty scary, all right Round Ron: Didn't realize that POS means "parent over shoulder" Dr. D.: Not in the ADAM community :-) Round Ron: indeed Dr. D.: At least not as used by my pal Herman Mason Jr. :-) rich-1: uh - depends on where you are - on carnuts.ws it tends to have a different meaning Pamela: ha ha, Dad Round Ron: what's it say there? Round Ron: priced over sanity? rich-1: damn near anything - there are sections where we even talk about cars Pamela: piece of . . . . Round Ron: ok how naiive I am rich-1: as in, that Ferrari of mine is a real POS... ; - ) Pamela: if someone said that I wouldn't believe them : ) Round Ron: speaking of POS, Rosie the Bull just cost me another$1400 Pamela: ???? Round Ron: rear suspension and leaky break cyl rich-1: let's say teh phrase is mostly used for lesser machinery - much lesser - Saturns, for instance Dr. D.: That is like millionaires complaining about crabgrass in the lawns of their estates... Round Ron: :) Guy B.: Just check my e-mail at work and our addresses are going to be changed. Dr. D.: Changed to what? rich-1: spam and hacker avoidance or some better pretence, Guy?

Dr. D.: <snicker> rich-1: no, that's something a little different... Guy B.: Been getting things from the FBI and CIA saying I visited illegal websites, but I found out there was a virus attached to it. Our mailservers screen it out. VE2HVZ - GuyF: Nope, haven't heard of James in a while too Pamela: (Pamela refrains from comment) Dr. D.: Changing diapers perhaps Round Ron: Are Quebec Ham Radio guys all VE2, Guy? VE2HVZ - GuyF: Ron: VE2 and VA2 rich-1: yes, that's one of the more common internet scams at the moment - phishing plus a keylogger, I believe Dr. D.: Guy is a ham? So that explains the VE2HVZ Round Ron: out here we're VE7 Guy B.: Abby can climb up the stairs again. Pamela: Guy, is your apartment a walkup?? Round Ron: progress eh? VE2HVZ - GuyF: Ron: Yep, VE1 I believe starts in the eat, and finishes in the west with VE7 Dr. D.: If the FBI wants me, they will knock at my door...they won't send me an E-mail. VE2HVZ - GuyF: *east Pamela: ya got that right Round Ron: out on the weather ship Vancouver (50 north 145 W) there was a VE0MZ Round Ron: everybody wanted a QSL card Guy B.: Thanks to the herbal medicine from the vet.

There's a local club VE2HVZ - GuyF: Dr. D: CB used to require a license eh? Heard of that... Dr. D.: Yes. VE2HVZ - GuyF: Ron: Honestly you should, it's so easy there's no reason not to!!! Dr. D.: Dad had to sit a 6-hour exam to get his license in 1959. Dr. D.: 1st-class radiotelephone operator. Round Ron: Still got Morse at about 20WPM running around in my head Dr. D.: He has kept it current...mails in the renewal fee every 5 years. rich-1: yes, that was s.o.p. back then - that and doing code VE2HVZ - GuyF: Ron: Oh boy, something I wish I could have!

An O.K. comes from the old telegraph operators. Dr. D.: Better than 4Q Round Ron: ha ha Pamela: groan Round Ron: Even Pam got that one Dr. D.: <rim shot> Guy B.: Hope to have it all done this weekend and to send out my Christmas cards. Printed them out and going to send a couple of photos of Abby to two friends of mine. Pamela: whaddya mean, "even Pam"???

The tree is now up but there's nothing on it yet Round Ron: I have to get a parcel away to Edmonton no later than the weekend Pamela: Cards are on the agenda, but I have to get stamps Dr. D.: Rin and I put up a tree before she went home at Thanksgiving (US). rich-1: I also got our lighting up, such as it is Guy B.: I'm glad I didn't send them out yet. I got another address change to make and add a new record for my friend Marsha. Got a card from her today. Dr. D.: Our stockings and one apiece for the girls I have hanging up. Round Ron: Can't get into any of that stuff until I get the card away to Bob.... which takes all of November and about 2 weeks in Dec Dr. D.: I wrapped the girls' stuff tonight and put it under the tree. rich-1: nothing like being prepared well in dvance Pamela: you're running out of time, Ron Round Ron: I know, I know Round Ron: A week tomorrow, I'm bound for my ex's place Pamela: that's disgusting, Rich VE2HVZ - GuyF: 11 days left, that's an eternity! Dr. D.: The girls will put up the tree at the house after Christina gets home Friday, probably not 'til Sunday night though. BobS: The card is DONE !!!!! so NOW get that shoppin' done Ron Dr. D.: If I don't do it now, it won't be until Christmas eve. Round Ron: thanks Bob....I needed that Pamela: isn't that what Christmas eve is for? Wrapping? Dr. D.: Today was my one day off before then...I am 14-hour days from now until 23 December. BobS: nO.....that day is for OPENING them
(A dog howls in the distance) Dr. D.: For putting stuff out and filling stockings, hopefully not wrapping, and definitely not shopping. Pamela: If I'm not just finishing up my wrapping on Christmas Eve at midnight, there's something wrong with the universe Round Ron: How are Doug and Meeka doin' Bob? Round Ron: haven't heard from them in a while Guy B.: I have a Garfield stocking that counts down how many days till Christmas. Except 2 and 1 are missing, so I'll have to create those two. BobS: they are both doing good
james left chat session BobS: getting caught up in the AMWAY sales thing and neglecting their ADAM friends rich-1: I think we just lost james Round Ron: say hi for me. Tell Doug I haven't dropped anything lately Dr. D.: AMWAY, ewwwww Pamela: since we're hosting this year, I guess I'd better be finished before then BobS: OK BobS: will do Ron VE2HVZ - GuyF: Guess I'll be singing that south park christmas song... rich-1: yes, I'm coming hungry - btw, your mother just finished teh second Christmas pudding tonight Guy B.: Well folks, I'm going to call it the night.

Guy B.: Going to see around the end of July or first weekend in August. BobS: I don't know.....they are closed mouth especially after we told them about a 20/20 special that looked at the company in a rather dubious light BobS: nite Guy Pamela: that's good news Dad - which reminds me, I need the outside diameter of the container to see if it will fit in our steamer. Can you ask her? Guy B.: Ok, see you all later. Poof
Guy B. left chat session VE2HVZ - GuyF: Poofers Round Ron: Guy.... if I may do a large PLEASE...... the first weekend of August is tied up here. I wouldn't be able to get away Pamela: Amway is notorious for bringing out the worst in people, Bob Round Ron: missed him. anybody got his e-mail? Dr. D.: Guy hath gepooft, Ron. Round Ron: I gotta tell him about that rich-1: sher says don't worry about it, she'll bring ours BobS: a new twist if the Alticor company which in an inline company BobS: online Pamela: okay. That will help. rich-1: she says it's about 7", smaller if put in foil, and teh two are stackable Round Ron: All of a sudden I was transported to downtown Ottawa and dumped in the Rideau Canal Pamela: hang on, I'll check Ron - but don't be surprised if I get dumped. Round Ron: damn screensavers Round Ron: thanks Pam VE2HVZ - GuyF: Errr, what's 7"??? I'm missing some of the convo... Dr. D.: My parents got talked into a pyramid scheme selling cosmetics back around 1970, by one of Mom's brothers...it was called Koskot...they put $2K in it...it caused very hard times for us, that's all I will say here... rich-1: more of less private, Pam and I, Guy Round Ron: I have attended several intro meetings over the years, but somehow never got into it Dr. D.: So I have natural distrust of stuff like Mary Kay and Amway... Round Ron: Amway, that is rich-1: count your blessing, Ron Round Ron: indeed Pamela: okay, try firstname.lastname@example.org Round Ron: just couldn't see myself being any good at it rich-1: American Way is no place for a furriner, however polite they are to your face Round Ron: thanks Pam Round Ron: ah so Dr. D.: I remember the day the semi delivered the load of cosmetics...boxes and boxes and boxes... BobS: ;most any of the 'private' sales products invoke a little eyebrow raising here with this untrusting guy Dr. D.: The product per se was legit, it was just the sales scheme was pyramid, and Mom and Dad were in it too late to be in the money-making part of it. Pamela: me too, Bob Dr. D.: They were also too honest... Pamela: anything pyramid is suspect rich-1: aw, they just do it so you can't conveniently compare the markup Round Ron: In this country, I think pyramids are illegal are they not? Pamela: oui, monsieur BobS: ABSOLUTELY Dr D..........the ones who got rich were the bottom tier who jumped at an impossible chance at luck which actually turned out rich-1: yes, I believe so, Ron, though proving them can be difficult VE2HVZ - GuyF: Ron: I believe they are, but they still go on under different names, types... Round Ron: however, they've done a little verbal jiggery pokery..... aka Multi-Level-Marketing Dr. D.: At least the products were legit...after the crash, they were used...I think it took about 8 years for Mom to finally finish off the last off it. Round Ron: I tell ya though, Amway has a stain remover that works like nothing else I've ever used rich-1: Pam, are you still doing the Avon schtick? Dr. D.: Kosmetics for the Kommunities of Tomorrow...Koskot...founded by one Glenn W. Turner. Pamela: no, I haven't for years, Dad VE2HVZ - GuyF: Tupperware parties! Woohoo BobS: a pyramid scheme is not illegal IF the whole thing has a legit product to sell......that is how AMWAY made it work rich-1: bite your tongue, Guy! 8 - ) Round Ron: My cousin the Doc in Charlottetown in 1997 tried to get me to come aboard something called Jewellway Dr. D.: We do have some 40-year-old Tupperware at home, mixing bowls and collander. Round Ron: told him he'd have to wait in line Dr. D.: It will probably last another 40 years. Pamela: Russell's cousin is into home base businesses in a big way, and I give her the orders from my office, and take the delivery. She gets all the headaches VE2HVZ - GuyF: Dr.D: Colletibles, believe it or not... have a friend who's an avid tupperware collector. Pamela: tupperware is the best, no doubt - but it's damned expensive rich-1: yes, if you need it, Tupperware is a legitimate product - though perchance a bit overpriced? VE2HVZ - GuyF: http://headlines.accuweather.com/news-story.asp?partner=accuweather@myadc=0&article=0 Dr. D.: It is a set of pale yellow stuff, large mixing bowl, small mixing bowl (no lids, they have rounded lips for pouring) and the collander. VE2HVZ - GuyF: We're getting 10 inches on Fri.... Uh-oh. Pamela: well, put it this way - Ihave the best salad spinner going, from Tupperware, but the retail price is $50.00 Dr. D.: Fetchez le shovel :-) Round Ron: and that.... I was given to understand is the difference. If you're selling a legit product, and the purpose of your business is to promote, sell and distribute that product, then you're not a Pyramid BobS: NEWS FLASH..........FREEZING RAIN warning for us in Grand Rapids BobS: YUCK Round Ron: EWWWW Pamela: ick VE2HVZ - GuyF: Time to think of KYOTO! VE2HVZ - GuyF: ;) BobS: that is about it Ron......although the end result for a lot of the sellers is the same as a worthless pyramid Round Ron: But, on the other hand, if all you're trying to do is sign up people in your chain, then you're a Pyramid Dr. D.: talk to our Fearless Leader here about Kyoto...he will K.O. your climatologist BobS: it is the product validity that changes the whole thing Round Ron: so I understand Pamela: no comment rich-1: oh, our guys ticked him off at the Montreal conference and now teh ambassador is sulking BobS: well kids.......got to go here and hit the sack so's I can get up early and deal w/ the ice (less than 1/4") Dr. D.: So I read in the Toronto Star BobS: next week all Dr. D.: Good night Bob Pamela: gnite Bob - hi to Judy rich-1: night Bob BobS: nite all Dr. D.: I will be at a band concert next Wednesday

Dr. D.: Diana. rich-1: which will run rather late, so if we miss you - Merry Christmas! Dr. D.: Elanor's vocal concert is this Friday. Dr. D.: I have to get back in town with Christina in time to make the concert. Pamela: oh, that should be lovely too Round Ron: nite Bob Dr. D.: Yes, Richard, I doubt I will make the chat next Wednesday. Dr. D.: Yeah, since her class doesn't let out until 3:30 PM, and the concert starts at 7 PM. Dr. D.: Just hope for normal 2-hour drive from Erie. Round Ron: By this time next week, I must have all my shopping done and all my cards sent and my suitcase packed Pamela: well then, Merry Christmas Rich Round Ron: YIKES rich-1: if the weather is dicey, remember arriving late is better than not arriving at all Dr. D.: Thanks Pam, Merry Christmas to you too. Pamela: better get busy then, Ron Round Ron: yep Dr. D.: Rin and I will be coming to Toronto on the 2nd. Pamela: (PRIVATE) I'll probably talk to you on Boxing Day Dr. D.: Probably staying for a couple days. rich-1: OK, we'll make a note - for how long? Dr. D.: Rin doesn't have to go back to work until the 4th. Pamela: yes, she was saying. Hopefully, since Russell is off on the Tuesday and Wednesday we'll get to see you Dr. D.: Yes, the last few times have been very late arrivals...last trip was over 7 hours, ugh. Pamela: I heard : ) Pamela: speaking of hearing, heard from Rin yet? Dr. D.: Accident on the freeway leading up to the bridge, so they diverted everyone to Niagara Street and it was a crawl. Dr. D.: Yes...she said dinner had ended and dancing had started. Pamela: any idea when she'll be home? Dr. D.: I wrote back, does that mean you are leaving now? but have had no reply. rich-1: actually, that was teh alibi - in fact Security was having an attack of paranoia again - right, Rich? Dr. D.: She was to be home at 10:30 per last word this afternoon. Pamela: hmm Dr. D.: I dunno Richard. Dr. D.: I-490 or whatever it is was closed for several exits. Dr. D.: Once I actually got to the bridge, it was zip right through. rich-1: you lack teh nasty suspcious mind required for the U>S> these days VE2HVZ - GuyF: I'll be out... if I don't talk to any of you, have some happy holidays!!! I should be on next week. Adios. Round Ron: Security gets paid to be paranoid Pamela: okay, Guy - g'nite Dr. D.: Bye Guy, Joyeux Noel I think it is? rich-1: Joyeux Noel et bponne nouvell annee, Guy Round Ron: happy holidays Guy be well Dr. D.: (PRIVATE) I should be in Windsor by early afternoon Boxing Day.

Pamela: (PRIVATE) always a good thing. Love you! Drive safe and Merry Christmas to all.

Pamela: hmm, maybe I'll give her a call Dr. D.: I am fuzzy on the geography so I don't know what it really means. Pamela: I'm not keen on her walking over from the corner Pamela: well she must be above ground if her Blackberry i working Dr. D.: That is true, it won't work on the train. Dr. D.: She was complaining about her boots. Pamela: LOL Dr. D.: So hopefully there is not too much ice on the sidewalk. Pamela: she should have known better. The sidewalks are actually not too bad but will be bad by tomorrow if we get the promised storm. Dr. D.: She refuses to buy stuff that is comfortable, so there is nothing I can do. She only cares how shoes look, not how they feel. Dr. D.: We have had that discussion many times, the point is moot. Pamela: well most of the time she's good about not wearing dress shoes / boots in the winter, but with the party, I'm not surprised Dr. D.: She even bought them here over Thanksgiving... Dr. D.: ...after saying they hurt her feet, but she liked how they looked. Pamela: I like the ones she got while she was there Dr. D.: I think it is a girl thing. Dr. D.: So I will let it pass...until I am paying half the podiatry bills, then I will growl some. Pamela: some women will always put fashion above comfort. I'm not one of them Dr. D.: Shoes are a blind spot I think, but what do I know. Pamela: shoes are a weakness for most women Pamela: I had my share of painful footwear over the years. Now I refuse. Dr. D.: Shoes are something to wear to avoid being barefoot on rough terrain... Pamela: it's hard enough to get comfortable footwear for square feet - fashion shoes are out of the question Pamela: so says a man : )
