SenorFoster: "we are not alone" Daniel Bienvenu: you know opcode... Daniel Bienvenu: .. he sent me an email one time, a couple of days after a reaction here about my order of plastic casings Daniel Bienvenu: finally I received the casings but I'm still nervous when using this chat. SenorFoster: Opcode? That annoying punk? He probably does a google search of his alias: "Opcode" and searches for what people say about him. BobS: address is public knowledge Daniel Daniel Bienvenu: well this term is used as single term for "operation code" that have a special meaning when talking about assembler code. BobS: 21 Rondale Blvd Toronto Ontario M6A 1H6 SenorFoster: I kind of know what an opcode is Daniel. :) james: did he send you a threatening email, dan? Daniel Bienvenu: so I don't think he really find the chat log because of his nickname. SenorFoster: He filters the relevant content out. SenorFoster: As much as I don't like the guy, one thing I can say is that he's a smart mutha. BobS: who is he?????? Daniel Bienvenu: well, no... just a comment about he saw that someone had a very bad opinion of him, but the terms he used give me the hint that he refered to the chat log. BobS: never he3ard of him......must not run in my circles, eh? Daniel Bienvenu: it's an american now SenorFoster: This guy who makes us look silly by producing the best games ever made on the Colecovision. BobS: currently programming????? or formerly ???? Daniel Bienvenu: to be fair, this guy take advantage of commercial games made for z80 porocessors and try doing conversions for colecovision. SenorFoster: Been doing it for years as a hobby, had visions of grandeur a few years back producing a Colecovision add-on module called the SEM, not sure if it ever came out. BobS: or one of those who spend most of their time gooding off and complaining about others instead of using talent to rise to the top of the crouwd Daniel Bienvenu: his best work is on arcade conversion. SenorFoster: He's damn good at converting though, he took the original Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man source code and ported it to the Colecovsiion, it's a flawless conversion.

Pamela: (PRIVATE) something cheerful that says you're thinking about him Daniel james: nice Pamela: seventeen? How did you manage that, James? It's February Daniel Bienvenu: (PRIVATE) sure, but what about the picture on the front... there is something he likes more than everything on earth? SenorFoster: Pam: Well, if you had asked de donde eres, I would replied, the esta part threw me off. SenorFoster: Too bad the US is still boycotting that country, it's a hell of a nice country to go visit! james: it's been a very warm winter. almost no snow this year Pamela: (PRIVATE) cars, Daniel but failing that, anything cheerful james: but yeah, we're hitting mid teens during the day now Daniel Bienvenu: (PRIVATE) of course, cars...

Daniel Bienvenu: hello again Bob SenorFoster: Pam: I actually understand spanish pretty well, made 2 friends in Cuba who barely spoke any english, and we actually managed to communicate pretty well. BobS: got dumped I guess.........nothing happened when I typed........ Pamela: hey Bob, did you find Dad's magic button too?
BobS changed username to RobertoS SenorFoster: Pam: Try me again...
RobertoS requested to ban BobS
Pamela confirmed ban
SenorFoster confirmed ban Daniel Bienvenu: I'm at home now, not at work like the past weeks. RobertoS: guess i did Pam Pamela: it helps to be fluent in a Romance language already, Guy - after 4 years of french in school, I found Spanish to be very easy to pick up RobertoS: what do you hear today Pam....about Richard ?
james confirmed ban james: it was the same for me for both italian and spanish Daniel Bienvenu: like I said before, I receive news from the pcb designer and I will have a minigame cartridge prototype soon. RobertoS: heck i amj having trouble with english !!!!!!!!! RobertoS: \and typing SenorFoster: Dan: Awesome, I can't wait to see the final result. Pamela: Mom will be on shortly to give the full update, Bob - but the upshot is, basically the same. Still in pain, but the infection is improving and they're getting him on his feet every day for at least a little while. Daniel Bienvenu: Well, it looks like the gamers prefer 8k games than 4k... they think they will buy crap if they are 4k only. Pamela: so Guy, donde esta ahora? SenorFoster: Pam: Where is the time? Pamela: no, where are you now? james: "where are you now" Pamela: thank you, James : ) SenorFoster: I am "Ahi" Daniel Bienvenu: I received only a few messages when I said the Coleco 4k minigames will be in cartridge. I don't understand... the Atari minigames cartridge was done without a problem. Pamela: aqui donde? En Montreal? En su casa? SenorFoster: Pamela: Yo soy en Montreal, en mis casa james: dan, i think people want larger games with a focus on scope and depth james: instead of lots of little games Pamela: I think the problem is that people are way too used to having games with gigabytes available, Daniel - no one can conceive of going back to only 4K SenorFoster: Exactly, as much as I love programming little games, I'd rather buy a big game that took years to develop, etc... james: make a game like "ultima" with save codes and you'll have a hit james: you can do that in 32k SenorFoster: Or add tons of extra bytes after your program to make your 4K game take up 32Ks of space. :) james: lol james: for the same reason that the big 3 auto makers aren't faring so well now james: they're not makign what their customers want SenorFoster: I still don't get it why car manufacturers don't build a simple, reliable no-nonsense car without any of those extra features that make cars reach the $30K+ mark. Pamela: I don't think the buying public knows what it wants anymore

RobertoS: that's a crossbreed is it not????? james: the boys are doing very well RobertoS: elec and gas? james: yeah, a hybrid Frances: the schools? james: i'm rather underwhelmed by it at times. the mileage claims were grossly exaggerated james: case is learning to read now. he can do short words and simple sentences. he'll be 5 next month SenorFoster: James: All car mileages are exagerated. SenorFoster: James: Wow, smart kid!!! james: aiden is toilet trained and knows his letters. he'll be 3 in may Frances: Heavens, James. How did they get so old? RobertoS: hmmmmmmmm.......heard that......theya re going to redoo the mileage values her in the US next year and say that the values are coming down drastically on the "green" cars james: true, but i think advertising 33 or 36 km/l when it's more like 21 goes somewhat beyond "exaggeration" james: it's flown by frances, it's gone by so fast Daniel Bienvenu: (PRIVATE) I like your shooter game, Guy. How can it be more enjoyable with 4k more rom space? do you have time to program a 8k version for this year? Pamela: Hi, Judy, didn't see you come in james: my school here is doing well. my new school is taking awhile to get going and i have to find a new teacher by june james: i'm somewhat panicked actually RobertoS: been here for a few minutes pam......right now incognito.....but will be back Frances: Why? Pamela: I stepped away for a minute, that's why I missed it james: she'll be leaving james: i've known since she started that she would be JudyS: Bob started me up, I was crocheting, am now on round 114 of 119 james: but finding part-time help out here for teaching english is very difficult. if the position were full-time it'd be easier to advertise Pamela: yay, almost done! james: and get someone JudyS: the trouble is the bigger it gets the longer it takes to go around Frances: Judy, that's not the table cover is it? JudyS: yes, it is Frances: Wow, an heirloom Pamela: do you have any contacts in the education community who might be able to help with that James? james: i'm working on it james: it's mostly because of where i am Frances: why is that, James? Pamela: did you have to start it over again Judy? Seems to me I remember someone saying that JudyS: how are you holding up, Francis? james: i'm out in the countryside Daniel Bienvenu: someone in Montreal (Blainville) want a coleco adam module (not the standalone version). JudyS: sorry, Frances Frances: I'd love to be out in the countryside, myself james: and most people don't want to come out here Frances: Judy, if I could more sleep it would help - I'm not sleeping well JudyS: yes, i did start over and the second time thru has gone a lot faster than the first time Frances: get to sleep most of the time but wake up too early Daniel Bienvenu: sorry, I have to say goodbye for tonight. Pamela: experience and practice are a great help, Judy : ) Pamela: goodnigh Daniel Frances: Goodnight, Daniel. james: good night dan RobertoS: nite Daniel JudyS: can you get some sleeping pills, I take them, is almost the only nights that I do sleep Frances: Why did you start over, Judy?

Daniel Bienvenu: talk to you later Daniel Bienvenu: a la semaine prochaine! Pamela: yes, it's been beautiful the last couple of days
Daniel Bienvenu left chat session JudyS: that is true, Frances, have to try to think calm thoughts Frances: but then the packed snow will melt a little then freeze Frances: calm thoughts don't do it, I'm afraid Guy B.: Even Annie is enjoying it. She doesn't have to wear her jacket now. Frances: I have lorazepam sublingual tablets for anxiety that gets a little too much Frances: I go from very confident to just the opposite JudyS: it is warming up here, also, the snow is melting like mad, but we had a lot of fog this morning JudyS: you have to stay positive Guy B.: Frances, how's Rich doing? Frances: I just put out the garbage - the driveway is okay but there is a spot right up beside the van which was a little slippery Frances: Guy, he's okay but there's a long way to go. Frances: His legs are healing but his left leg is still painful to move JudyS: our church parking lot Tuesday was all ice, not a good place to be walking that is for sure Guy B.: At least he will be slowly getting back on his feet. Tell him I'm glad he's doing better. Frances: the right one has a huge hematoma on it and the bandage slipped a little today and it cooled awful Frances: sorry, looked Frances: slowly is the operative word, Guy Guy B.: It's going to take some time. Frances: the physiotherapists have been getting him to stand up but it's not easy james: it's so easy to forget how we take basic mobility for granted Frances: frankly, I don't expect to see him home for at least a month Frances: yes it is james RobertoS: I can agree with that Fr4eances.it will take some time to heal hiim up Frances: and it doesn't help that our house is too small for a wheelchair RobertoS: and legs wounds don't heal easily as one ages Guy B.: I say this is his toughest challenge he has faced. Frances: just healing the sores is going to take quite a while RobertoS: got an aunt who has that problem and it takes time and more bandages and more ointments.......etcx Frances: yes, he's never been this sick before Frances: even the hip was not as debilitating Frances: and you could confidently expect it to get better JudyS: how is the back doing? Frances: I think that's his biggest problem and I don't really know because he doesn't stand up let alone walk Frances: he doesn't move around in bed very much either but I suspect he could do a little more than he does Frances: but he's afraid of the pain Frances: but they've got him on a very good foam topper with little waves on the top and it seems to be keeping the bedsores away Frances: I am sort of hoping they will give it to us Frances: because I don't know how they could re-sterilize it Pamela: walk softly and carry a big shopping bag : ) JudyS: that is good because he doesn't need anything else RobertoS: true RobertoS: probably should send it home with him.........or to convalescent faciliyt RobertoS: WHY are we so afraind it will hurt............the question of the century, isn't it? Frances: there is a stepdown unit at Sunnybrook and I think he may go there first RobertoS: we all are the same that way Frances: well, Richard can work thru a lot of pain so it must have been very painful to make him so leary of moving Pamela: well pain is nature's way of telling us there's something wrong Pamela: if you're in a lot of pain, there's something very wrong Frances: I think that some of it may be muscle spasms Frances: he's going to need a lot of therapy right away Frances: but he's also going to have to exercise regularly when he gets home Frances: and I expect some trouble over that Frances: because he's not an exerciser Frances: whenever I can get him walking regularly, he does okay Frances: but when he can't or won't we get trouble Frances: anyway, he's improving but he's irritable and bad-tempered and can't make up his mind what he wants Frances: and he's still somewhat vague - can't stick to a thread of conversation JudyS: that is what happens alot when you have pain or don't feel well Frances: and he doesn't want to read james: i'd probably be irritable too JudyS: that can be the pain meds he is on Pamela: you know Dad isn't well when he doesn't want to read Frances: oh yes, I agree. but I get the brunt and it is hard to brush off Frances: I don't ever remember when he didn't want to read Pamela: exactly JudyS: he would probably feel better if he did read, would take his mind off the pain for awhile Frances: Judy, he has a sort of brain fog Frances: I imagine he's still getting pain pills which would fog any brain Frances: but if I ask, he's never sure JudyS: what about magazines, easier to just look at, Birds and Blooms, is a good one, not a lot of adds Frances: anyway, things are improving but slowly and it is going to take a long time Frances: I don't think that would interest him, Judy Frances: I left the front section of The Star with him today and we'll see if he reads any part of Frances: Robert, you there? How's the job? RobertoS: will work out I think Frances RobertoS: not hard, kind of a slow pace and that is OK RobertoS: getting along with the older folks there.......course they are all older JudyS: is awful quite here in the house with him gone, kind of liked him home Frances: Bob, I remember the maintenance fellows where my parents lived and they had a lot variety Pamela: just the opposite of me, Judy - I like having Russell out from underfoot RobertoS: lot of variety maybe, but no hurry most of the time Pamela: I'm dreading having him home for even a short time between jobs RobertoS: think it will be slow most of the time RobertoS: IF I hurried, the people would get tiered watching RobertoS: tires RobertoS: tired Frances: Judy has a bigger place where she can stow Bob out of the way JudyS: it was an adjustment at first, but we were doing alot of things together and having a good time at it Pamela: it's not that he's in the way, it's just with him around I get nothing done RobertoS: "between jobs" ??????? as in he is getting canned also? RobertoS: and what about your interview? Pamela: the alarms division of his company was sold Bob RobertoS: oh oh JudyS: I wasn't getting anything done either but he didn't care and so why should I Frances: Richard has been retired for almost 17 years and it was okay with him athoem most of the time Pamela: the official word on the street is his last day is March 1st RobertoS: Oh, I could EASILY be permanently retired also Pamela: however, he told me this evening that the rumour is another two to four weeks RobertoS: oh boy RobertoS: see........you get that better job and Russell can be MR HOMEMAKER JudyS: oh, that is too bad, we wil be thinking about you two Pamela: Judy, when I say nothing, I mean NOTHING - the dishes don't get done, the bed doesn't get made, the laundry doesn't get done, none of the items on my to-do list get approached RobertoS: got to whip him into shape IF he stays home....... Frances: Russell can exist in chaos and not notice a thing! Pamela: he said the other day "I have this feeling there's going to be a daily "honey-do" list if I'm off for very long - if he only knew : ) JudyS: you have to do somethings or you don't eat, and you wouldn't have anything to wear Pamela: and if I don't do them Judy, they don't get done, period Pamela: so, as I said, he's a bad influence JudyS: Bob kept himself busy most of the time, except for during The Price is Right, had to watch that Pamela: I don't do his laundry, so if he has no clean clothes, well, tough bananas james: lol Frances: good thing you don't have a basement and a yard to look after JudyS: he is still complaining that he is missing it james: speaking of basements and yards Frances: I can't see Bob sitting around twiddling his thumbs, Judy Pamela: but, I don't get mine done either, and that is a problem. There are only so many things I can stretch to fit the concept of work wear james: i put the blueprints and a few samples for our planned house online james: anyone bored enough can check them out here: Pamela: on your website, James? Frances: planned house? - tell me more james: http://www.decarlo.ca/house/0219/ JudyS: no, he stays busy, but it was different than working, it has been hard on him getting back to work james: well with my two little ones not so little now, my mother-in-law still crazily packing up the house with everything she can find james: and their schedule not being ideal for getting the kids to bed at a good time, i put my foot down Pamela: how big is the house you're currently in James? james: and we're getting our own house this year. i'm tired of the clutter, junk and freezing my ass off indoors Frances: so there james: it's big, but it's small Pamela: are the boys sharing a room? james: there is so much of her crap in there and the place is such a mess that i reached my wits' end awhile ago james: her = mother-in-law's RobertoS: oops.......not a match made in heaven Pamela: I must say that's a huge part of the problem around here - we're both packrats james: i typically sleep with one of my sons and my wife the other. we're working on fixing that Frances: James, how did you get a .ca designation when you are in Japan? RobertoS: like the hosue drawings James james: i'm still a canadian citizen and paid with my canadian credit card using my parents' address james: thanks roberto Frances: I'll try to look at the house James and give you my considered opinion james: there's an artist's conception drawing one level up. sec i'll dig it up Frances: I'm good at reading house plans james: we've been working on the layout for 6 months now. we'Re finally happ with it JudyS: nice looking, James Frances: James, import Robert to build it james: http://www.decarlo.ca/house/house-14.jpg Pamela: now there's an idea - Judy, how would you like a trip to Japan?

When the movers came the next day, all they had to move was the empty furniture Frances: well, Judy, what you do is keep the elephant busy carrying boxes back and forth Pamela: I think all they had to move the following day was the sheets on the bed and the clothes on their backs and a small bag of toiletries JudyS: that would work, Frances Pamela: yes, but the elephant has to want to move : ) Frances: yes, I remember that you had to move to an apatment when you sold your house and your new one wasn't ready Guy B.: Well folks, I'm going to call it the night. Frances, keep us posted on Rich's progress. Pamela: good night, Guy RobertoS: BIG elephant say.......NO MOVE !!! RobertoS: nite guy Frances: I will, Guy.

Pamela: empty flat surfaces are good too Pamela: it will be an adventure, Mom Pamela: the basement may even qualify as a safari Frances: I've tried to get Richard to start clearing out things and he did a bit this fall RobertoS: thought the basement got some cleaning out?
