TheOtherGuy: Ah man, what a day, glad to be able to relax in front of the puter... even if it's for 30 mins or so. rich-c: that sounds evetful TheOtherGuy: Sandra's fine, we will be going tomorrow morning at 6:00 AM to get the labor induced. Spent all day at the emergency for my mother today, then tomorrow have to bring her to a geriatric hospital. rich-c: oh dear - what happened with your mother? TheOtherGuy: Oh, old age got to ther. :) Daniel B: Guy, I don't know if you know it, but Rich-c had an accident ... and the result is a terrible back pain. rich-c: care to be more specific, Guy? TheOtherGuy: She's been having problems walking for the past few years, and a few weeks ago came to a point where she couldn't get out of bed. rich-c: what was the problem? strength? balance? illness? TheOtherGuy: She's been throwing up also for the past few weeks, adn today they found out that she was throwing up blood as well. rich-c: that is not a good sign. How old is she? TheOtherGuy: 72 rich-c: that's younger than myself or Frances - she should be holding up better than that TheOtherGuy: No, not a good sign at all, I know. TheOtherGuy: Rich: Everyone is different Rich. TheOtherGuy: Some people croak at 50. Daniel B: My mother have also a problem to walk... but she try to walk more and more to avoid being paralyzed or something like that... a bad side effect of months of chimiotherapy rich-c: I'm well aware of that, Guy - the average person of my age is dead TheOtherGuy: Exacto. TheOtherGuy: But people ar eliving longer these days Daniel B: longer , but in health TheOtherGuy: What happened with ur back? rich-c: yes, we are. Daniel: your mother had cancer? rich-c: managed to thoroughly strain a set of muscles, which went into strong revolt Daniel B: ... my mother got breast cancer last year TheOtherGuy: Sorry to hear Dan B Daniel B: I didn't want anyone to know it, I tried to do everything like before... a kind of denied rich-c: that's scary, Daniel - though they are beginning to find new methods of dealing with it now Daniel B: Well, the situation is not so bad... my mother is very active, she can walk more kilometers than me in a day. rich-c: maybe hers was caught early enough, and/or the new therapies work for her - let us pray so TheOtherGuy: So I have to deal with my wife giving birth and my mother being in intensive care, all in the same day... Daniel B: walking in stairs for her is very difficult, but walking it's fine. rich-c: any diagnosis for your mother, Guy - an ulcer, perhaps? TheOtherGuy: Dan: Yeah, for my mom, just getting out of bed is very hard... TheOtherGuy: Rich: Perhaps, we will know tomorrow. rich-c: you could well get lucky, Guy - medicine today is quite advanced even from five years ago TheOtherGuy: I hope so... really hope so. Daniel B: I will have to leave soon, I'm testing a few things before leaving my job and return home to continue the powerpoint file for Arcadia. TheOtherGuy: Still at work? Hope you get paid overtime Dan? rich-c: that's all you can do - put your head down, cross your fingers, and take life as it comes rich-c: forget to ask - how is the job going, Daniel? TheOtherGuy: Rich: How about waving my fist in the air? Daniel B: overtime doesn't count... only the result count... I simply leave sooner friday TheOtherGuy: errr, if I work 2 hrs extra at my job, I get paid for 2 hours... no volunteering there. And I get paid time and a half. rich-c: whatever form of stress relief turns you on, Guy - you surely need it Daniel B: well, I received new tasks to do in the system we work on during months. Starting new code is not so easy, I always do copy-paste from my other codings to gain time. TheOtherGuy: Yeah, we all have our little obstacles in life to get through.... it ain't bad, and I shouldnt complain, tomorrow will be a day that I will remember for the rest of my life. rich-c: that I think is a pretty likely prediction, Guy TheOtherGuy: my wife and daughter will be 4 days apart in their birthdays.... nice $$$ cost savings there for me! woohoo rich-c: well, maybe - I always felt sorry for my uncle whose birthday was Dec. 25th TheOtherGuy: hahaha, poor fellow... TheOtherGuy: is next year's adamcon in Ottawa an almost sure thing BTW? rich-c: the family tried to accommodate to it, but were not always successful rich-c: well, Hull, or Gatineau or whatever it is now Daniel B: I'm sure you will not be able to resist to buy many gifts for your daugther... and adios cost saving. TheOtherGuy: ok, that's all good.... great stuff. I know it's far away, but its nice to plan ahead. TheOtherGuy: I'll buy her computer components. :) :) :) Daniel B: ... testing phase in progress ... rich-c: yes, I can make it in a one day drive TheOtherGuy: which reminds me, I need to get a baseball bat.... to get ready, in case any boys loom around her. rich-c: Pamela will also be going but staying on after for sightseeing TheOtherGuy: Hull/Gatineau/Ottawa are nice in summer... rich-c: yes, we have been there often - Frances lived in Ottawa during the war TheOtherGuy: WW2? rich-c: yes, her father was a banker who was seconded to the WPTB TheOtherGuy: What's WPTB? rich-c: he had had tuberculosis so armed service was out of the question rich-c: Wartime Prices and Trade Board - responsible among other things for export/import controls Daniel B: ... testing phase 2 in progress ... rich-c: how's it coming so far, Daniel? Daniel B: phase 2 is generaly the last one... doing a phase 3 is not a good sign.

Pamela V.: in my whaddyacallit window at the bottom where it shows I'm connected (or not) rich-c: well, I don't rent the modem, and he has to pay Ma Bell much more for the DSL line rich-c: right, I forget that Windows 98 showed it there Pamela V.: anyway I'm tired and cranky so probably not the best time to think about it Pamela V.: before I got dumped, started to tell you, guess what I found? rich-c: know what you mean - meanwhile, our answering machine went kaput today rich-c: what did you find?
