Dale: You presented with Daniel for 45 minutes last year. Dale: I was hoping you'd have some hardware hacking ideas. Guy F.: Dale: Oh, OK... well, I'm not attending Adamcon this year unfortunately, as much as I'd like to. Dale: ColecoVision oriented is fine by me. Guy F.: I let Guy know last week in chat. Dale: Too bad. We'll miss you. Guy F.: I'll miss you guys too, honestly, been thinking about it a lot recently since the date is coming soon. Dale: Daniel sent PowerPoints when he couldn't attend. Guy F.: It's the added cost of a plane ticket that is not working out. Dale: ;-) Guy F.: Hey, I'd love to do some sort of presentation! Dale: brb rich-c: what prices were you seeing on tickets, Guy?

Thought you were flying? rich-c: unfortunately from a carpool point of view, that is

Pamela: ah, that explains that. Rich, ask her if my e-mail ever came thru : ) BobS: we don't care about you working late, it is the dial up part for Erin that bothers us BobS: HA Pamela: hey, I'm on dial-up too Dr. D.: Erin says, which E-mail do you mean? BobS: nothing wrong with dialup......unless you are talking on thephone Pamela: the one responding to "which day" rich-c: yes, but you're on Tamco - it can make a difference Dr. D.: I am trying to get a poster out the door for a conference I have to go to on Sunday. Dr. D.: She says no, Pam. rich-c: hey, you've still got four days - take it easy! Dr. D.: If it isn't at the printer tomorrow morning at 9 AM, no poster. Pamela: figures - my work e-mail and her e-mail do not like each other rich-c: btw, hi, didn't see you come in james: hi dr james: bbs, cleanin up here Dr. D.: Ironically, the conference is in Chicago...annual American Society for Engineering Education. rich-c: right, Tamco doesn't try to have a lot of useless filter rules Dr. D.: meeting Pamela: no,it's not that - they will talk to each other, but it takes forever for some reason. I sent her a response to something yesterday at 3:43, she didn't get it till 7:00 Dr. D.: But alas, Erin and I can not afford to attend ADAMcon 18...we are very sorry :-( Pamela: and today's response was sent before noon - she still doesn't have it BobS: does your emial go to china and back....by any chance Pamela: been there, done that Rich - we understand Pamela: oh, probably, Bob : ) Dr. D.: Wedding costs are projected at $1500, and ADAMcon would cost us $850 or more. Dr. D.: So, we had to choose... rich-c: so when are you planning to have the wedding? Dr. D.: We are shooting for 5 August, but that is contingent upon having certified copies of all dissolution paperwork very soon after the final court hearing on 11 July. Dr. D.: I am still waiting for my lawyer to tell me if that is reasonable or not. Dr. D.: He is on vacation :-S rich-c: that seems very precipate to me, but then we are going to be away Sept. - October BobS: the way the courts are....don't plan on getting papers too quick BobS: the wheels of justice (?) grind slowly.....Lowly Dr. D.: My Dad got his the same day, so that is why I think it is possible. BobS: hope os BobS: so Guy B.: Dr. D. I told Erin that this is more important to you and we will miss you at this year's con. BobS: maybe not final papers, but acceptable ones to use....... Dr. D.: Frankly, Richard, if we have to, we will get married when we can, and worry about having a party for anyone interested later, when convenient for all. Dr. D.: But once the semester starts here, last 2 weeks of August, I am not going to be able to get out of classes etc. until December. Dr. D.: No way we will wait that long, since we also have a 6-8 month immigration separation clock. rich-c: understand that position, Rich - Frances would even recommend it (she doesn't like fancy weddings) Dr. D.: I want Rin, not the party, and she says the same...of course her mother is not happy with that, but so it goes. Dr. D.: The simpler the better for me. Pamela: yes, Mother's favourite line - just tell me when to show up : ) rich-c: Frances says Pamela's wedding was pushing the limits for size and elaboration, for her taste Pamela: it was ten people!!! How can that be pushing the limits? rich-c: I had to wear a tie! Dr. D.: haha Dr. D.: You are exempt if you choose to attend our wedding, Richard :-) Pamela: and you looked very nice in it - besides, no one told you you had to wear a tie rich-c: anyway, ask Rich and Rin, I'm sure they'll agree Pamela: plus, I now have a very nice picture of the two of us rich-c: Pam, GuyF says he was quoted $800 -$900 for a flight Montreal-Chicago return Pamela: something I didn't have before rich-c: that sounds awfully hig to me - your opinion? Pamela: sounds high to me too rich-c: could you maybe give him a lead on where to find something better? Pamela: check travelocity rich-c: seems the only place he looked was expedia Pamela: I found better info and rates on Travelocity.ca rich-c: OK - he and Dale were also discussing carpool possibilities Pamela: also, it pays to check the AC website rich-c: right - unfortunately, I don't have his email address Pamela: perhaps Guy should look into driving to the nearest US airport and flying out of there rich-c: Montreal doesn't have a nearest US airport of any significance james: dr. d, if i fire up my server, would you be able to hook me up with my who fix? Pamela: brb Guy B.: That's a good option for him. Pamela: here Dr. D.: Off the phone with Rin now...she said she was going to drop by the chat. BobS: montreal airport is what ??????
