Daniel Bienvenu: hello Pam Pamela: Hi, Rich and Daniel Daniel Bienvenu: this is my new situation : I'm still working, but I'm working at home. Pamela: how's that going for you Daniel? Daniel Bienvenu: well, I setup the network to communicate with the company's servers, but I still need some adjustment and modifications Daniel Bienvenu: I had to install High-Speed Internet
moved to room Meeting Place Pamela: what still needs adjusting?
changed username to eDr. Pamela: HI, Rin eDr.: allo Daniel Bienvenu: unfortunatly, I had to call the technical support for the first connexion... my password they gave me the first time wasn't right. Pamela: Rin, where did Rich go? eDr.: I dunno.... Daniel Bienvenu: well, I have to configure the Linux machine new network reality, including the internet and the vpn link to the servers Pamela: hmm Daniel Bienvenu: I know... Pamela: can you do that without tech support, Daniel? eDr.: how long have you guys been here? Daniel Bienvenu: Dr.D. had to take some landry... Pamela: I just got here Pamela: ahh Daniel Bienvenu: will be back later Daniel Bienvenu: I'm here from the begginning tonight Pamela: How's work going for you, Erin? Still crazy? eDr.: very....got home at 8:30 tonight Pamela: wow, really late Pamela: do you have a new e-mail address to or is that just MGS? eDr.: hmmmm I was here at 9:15 but no one was here...must have been a glitch Pamela: sorry, too eDr.: you mean "@ontario.ca"? Pamela: yup Daniel Bienvenu: actual I just needed the tech support because of the activation process that failed. I had no p^roblem to setup the network... I have to check again the configuration, but at least it works. eDr.: we've had that for a while...but the old account still gets it there Pamela: Daniel, are you familiar with Linux? Pamela: so should I change yours too, Erin? Daniel Bienvenu: I have some knowledge and I got some advice to setup the vpn. I think I will be ok to continue setup the network. eDr.: you can if you wish Pamela: what's a vpn? Pamela: I think I will, just in the interests of continuity : ) Daniel Bienvenu: Virtual Private Network... it's a kind of link reserved to some users only to a server. eDr.: works for me...it is easier to remember off the top too Daniel Bienvenu: you can setup one easily with Windows (the reccent ones at least). Daniel Bienvenu: but with Linux, it's not that easy... except with the most reccent distribution. Daniel Bienvenu: pptp (win32) pptp-linux (linux) Daniel Bienvenu: also open-vpn is available Daniel Bienvenu: they are different Pamela: you're speaking greek now, Daniel : ) - you've lost me Daniel Bienvenu: just software name Pamela: Marsh offered me the job, Rin Dr. D.: You are going to work in a marsh? eDr.: Congrats .....so what do you think? Pamela: now I don't know what to think - Hi, Rich Daniel Bienvenu: félicitations! Daniel Bienvenu: think? ... about what? Dr. D.: I have missed something. Pamela: the $ is decent and it comes with a lot of perks including 3 weeks vacation off the top, but I'm very conflicted Dr. D.: I am back from folding laundry. Pamela: Marsh Canada, division of Marsh and McLennan Pamela: Insurance brokers - one of the largest brokers in Canada Dr. D.: That doesn't help me Dr. D.: ahh Dr. D.: We're the largest broken insurance company in Canada haha Dr. D.: So you have been looking elsewhere? eDr.: sounds promising Dr. D.: I thought it was the other half who needed to be looking... Pamela: I wasn't looking, it sort of fell into my lap Dr. D.: Well I know all about that phenomenon Pamela: well I'll tell you if his former company doesn't get off their duff, he is going to need to look soon eDr.: sometimes it's the best way to get jobs Dr. D.: They are reneging on severance?!?!? Pamela: still unable to reach his HR person to get a handle on when the balance of his pay and severance are coming through, and in what form Dr. D.: hmmm Pamela: they'd better not renege, not unless they want their asses sued off Dr. D.: Rin, what is Labour's position on "timeliness"? Dr. D.: Suing requires $$$ to get $$$ and the process tends to eat the proceeds... Dr. D.: I seem to remember reading about this recently in the online TS, 3-day court trial is $60K?!?!? Pamela: but when you sue, you sue for $ owed plus court costs Dr. D.: Yeah but the solicitor's fee is $300 per hr Pamela: and if they lose, they pay your solicitor too : ) Pamela: however, I'm sure it's just a communication glitch - they are very poorly organized over there (surprise, surprise) Dr. D.: Bad case of craniorectal inversion syndrome, eh? Pamela: I'll say one thing for Speedy, they were very organized and prepared Pamela: LOL Pamela: really bad case : ) Dr. D.: If Speedy is in your name, anything else is an oxymoron... Dr. D.: I wonder if any offices had someone named McFeeley who worked there...that would have been a blast. Pamela: well by the time they got to my group, they'd gone through it three or four times already Daniel Bienvenu: ... I'm still here ... just watching tv at the same time ... Dr. D.: What are you watching, Daniel? Daniel Bienvenu: Ripley's ... strange things and events... Pamela: Russell is watching something on the History channel Dr. D.: "Believe It Or Not" is the original English version. Dr. D.: No videophone here or I would be watching Rin :-( eDr.: :-) Dr. D.: She must not be watching the TTY either Dr. D.: now she is eDr.: TTY? Daniel Bienvenu: I went to a Believe or not "museum" and the only thing I'm amaze is the russian guy with doubled eyes. Dr. D.: TeleTYpe eDr.: ah Pamela: that's one we skipped when we were in Niagara Falls last Pamela: went to the Houdini museum, though Pamela: heavens, that was back in 1992 - my, how time flies Dr. D.: I was there in 1977 with my marching band.
moved to room Meeting Place Dr. D.: Apparently some of them are gone, lost in a fire...maybe it wasy Houdini's. Pamela: speaking of trips, has anyone nagged Neil lately?
changed username to Guy B. Guy B.: Greetings!!!! Pamela: good evening, Guy Dr. D.: Hi Dr. D.: Guy Daniel Bienvenu: hi Guy eDr.: hi Guy Guy B.: I hope he announces the dates soon, I applied for my passport last Sunday. Had to wait about an hour. Pamela: and Daniel, have you had any communication with Dale? Pamela: how long before you get your passport, Guy? Dr. D.: I hope it is a short "standard" wait for your passport, Guy. Daniel Bienvenu: with Dale? err... not reccently... Dr. D.: Mine was 6 weeks IIRC. Dr. D.: But that was in 2005. Pamela: do they ask for it at the Canadian border, Rich? Dr. D.: There is a crunch now because of the impending MUST-HAVE date in January 2008. Dr. D.: Almost never. Guy B.: 8 to 10 weeks. Should be in the middle of May. Dr. D.: I have it there. Sometimes they ask me what my citizenship is, but usually not. Pamela: I guess they're used to you being a "frequent flyer" by now Dr. D.: First question is usually "Where are you going?" or "Purpose of your trip?" Pamela: passports are on our to do list as well, but we're not in any hurry Dr. D.: Next lately has been "Do you have anything to declare?" Used to be "How long are you staying?" Dr. D.: US guy asked if I had any raw food or open food containers. Pamela: going out, or back in? Pamela: ie, leaving the States or returning Dr. D.: Coming in. Dr. D.: It's the latest thing to make truckers throw out all their fast food and Tim Horton's due to "food biohazard threat" Dr. D.: I kid you not. Pamela: 'scuse me while I pick myself up off the floor : ) "food biohazard threat"? From Tim Hortons??? OH, brother Dr. D.: Can't have open food containers. Dr. D.: No burgers, KFC, doughnuts, coffee, etc. Dr. D.: They are treating it like fresh fruit or meat. Pamela: I can just see it - roll up to the border guards and say, excuse me, do you have a garbage can? Dr. D.: Yes. Dr. D.: They started this a couple months ago, you bet the truckers do not like it. Pamela: Sigh - no further comment Dr. D.: It comes from someone's strict reading of the laws. Daniel Bienvenu: the situation is crazy... parano... eDr.: sigh...think I'm turning in folks....gonna be a long day tomorrow Pamela: not surprised, you sound tired even in print : ) Pamela: goodnight, sweetie - love you Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit, Erin! Dr. D.: Sleep, Daniel...hope you don't dream of double-eyed Russians. eDr.: nitey nite all Dr. D.: Oh it is Rin turning in.

Ronald: Pam, Guy Daniel Bienvenu: bonsoir Ron Dr. D.: I am not worried about unexpected visitors, I have kept things pretty neat here in my apartment. Ronald: Mon ami Pamela: LOL, Daniel : ) Pamela: now there's a dream that needs no explanation Dr. D.: For Pam it is a dream about her mother visiting :-) Ronald: bosses should not appear in dreams Pamela: you've seen the difference, Rich - you know how bad it can get around here Pamela: and yes, the floor is still clear, at least so far Ronald: same for ex wives Daniel Bienvenu: Well, I know I have to clean up this mess around me, but I don't have the courage to put things in the trash... just in case I will regret to not have this or this object. Ronald: I can relate to that Pamela: Rule of thumb, Daniel - if you haven't used it in two years, you are probably safe to throw it out Ronald: hence the P133 and P166 in the closet Dr. D.: Unless you are a historian. Dr. D.: Then you can't discard it. Pamela: of course, this excludes things like rare computer manuals Ronald: and the SE and the SE30 Dr. D.: <looking up a quote> Ronald: Once a pack rat, always a pack rat Pamela: of course, I'm very poor at taking my own advice - hence the reason the back room is such a disaster area Pamela: but, I'm working on it Ronald: Take my advice, I'm not using it Pamela: Guy, what's your take on it - is your place guest ready all the time? Or are you a typical bachelor? Dr. D.: found it Ronald: Although actually, I tidied up two closets at the beginning of this month. Now I can actually find stuff in there. And there were two garbage bags Ronald: full of items that got thrown out Dr. D.: EVOLUTION OF MATERIAL OBJECTS AND MENTAL CONCEPTS Pamela: amazing, isn't it, Ron? : ) Ronald: oh yes, never ceases to amaze me Dr. D.: 1. Invention. 2. Popular Use. (PRACTICAL PHASE) Ronald: end of life Dr. D.: 3. Obsolescence. 4. Obscurity -- BULLDADA (DOWNPHASE) Ronald: Cannot think of a single reason why I'm retaining the two Pentiae Ronald: one Pentium, several Pentiae Dr. D.: 5. MOREALISM (Humorous Rediscovery). 6. Avant-Garde. 7. CHIC. 8. Nostalgio-Popularity. (REDISCOVERY PHASE) Dr. D.: 9. Passe Tackiness. 10. Obscurity. (DOWNPHASE) Ronald: how about Retro Rich, where does that come in? Pamela: in about forty years, Ron : ) Dr. D.: 11. Classic. 12. Antique (BULLDADA). 13. Pre-Xist. (COLLECTOR'S PHASE) Ronald: right. that makes me almost 103 Dr. D.: 14. Human Artifact. 15. Earth Artifact. 16. Fossil. (HISTORIAN'S PHASE) Dr. D.: 17. Cosmic Dust. (PALEONTOLOGIST'S PHASE) Dr. D.: 18. Return to God. 19. BULLDADA. (TRANSCENDENTAL PHASE) Ronald: archeologists will study the cosmic cust Dr. D.: NOW STOP READING Daniel Bienvenu: very interresting dr.d ... so a club based on nostalgia have no real future because of the downphase coming soon? but collectors groups based on nostalgia exists. Ronald: cust? how about dust Dr. D.: That's from "The Book of the SubGenius" (1983). Ronald: are we not one such group? Dr. D.: We are indeed. Pamela: we are Dr. D.: And I am proud of it :-) Ronald: ya got that right son Ronald: we taught Bill Gates everything he knows Dr. D.: I think ADAM has already been through a couple downphases. Pamela: so translation, it's past time to throw out that Clapper taking up room in the closet? Dr. D.: hehe Ronald: yes, absolutely Dr. D.: ADAM may never be totally retro-chic, but I am saving all the artifacts for the historians. Ronald: So if it's such a good idea, why haven't I done it? Daniel Bienvenu: I don't want to put my Commodore 64 in the trash... it still pluged and the almost all the floppies are still working... But I have some old stuff not working I just keeped just in case I can re-use the good parts to make something else or to repair. Dr. D.: That is the majority of my ADAM stuff, too, Daniel, spares. Ronald: Boy Daniel, have I got a deal for you. Pamela: because you, Ron, are a procrastinator Ronald: ah Dr. D.: I am going to have to organize it soon, I really need to have the 2nd bedroom here. Ronald: yes, DO NOT today, that which can be put off until tomorrow Pamela: or the next day : ) Dr. D.: Some boxes have not been unpacked since ADAMcon 14 (which was the last one I drove to and brought lots of stuff). Ronald: I have several ADAMs in boxes Pamela: what are you going to do when Erin moves in? She has a lot of stuff. Ronald: they cry to me some nights Ronald: theory of batchelor's expanding stuff. There IS no room for anyone else Pamela: if they've moved into the audible range you're in trouble, Ron Ronald: I know. It worries me Dr. D.: She will have less as will I :-) Daniel Bienvenu: well, working at home help me to realize that I reached a point.... I have to make choices and clean up. Pamela: good for you Daniel Ronald: If anyone were to dare to move in here with me, we start by fighting over closet space Ronald: and there would be the inevitable question, why do you have 20 t-shirts (no more than that)?? Pamela: because 18 of htem are ADAM t-shirts - silly question Ronald: best to remain single I think Ronald: yep, and in most cases they are duplicated Ronald: so really, it's 40. They take up an entire chest Ronald: My own mother, God rest her soul, was of the view that I should be throwing out the older ones Pamela: I must say, mine see the light of day much more often in the warm months, and some I wear more than others Ronald: response to that was uncharacteristically blunt Pamela: some are fragile and get worn only during the convention Ronald: exactly Pamela: well I am an admitted clothes horse, but I am pretty good about weeding whenever the seasons change Ronald: But getting back to Dr. D, I'm sure there will be some amicable negotiation, and then Rin will get whatever space she needs Ronald: Dr. D. can have the rest Daniel Bienvenu: hmmm.... I checked... I have 20 t-shirt, 5 of them are almost new. Dr. D.: Rin is laughing with you Ron Pamela: what furniture do you have, Rich? Dr. D.: <she is on the phone now> Ronald: of course Dr. D.: Not a lot. Dr. D.: On purpose, to keep the place empty. Dr. D.: No $$$ to buy it now, and why buy anything without Rin to look at it> Dr. D.: ? Pamela: so are you going to import some of her furniture? Daniel Bienvenu: but, in the closet, there are enough boxes that the t-shirt touch them. Dr. D.: I have a couple of wooden chairs, a wooden desk (all from a library on campus), card table, stationary bike, 2 basket wicker chairs, 13" Commodore monitor on a VCR cart. Dr. D.: Small bookshelf, my dresser, king-sized double-layer air mattress. Dr. D.: That is it. Ronald: quite minimalist, Dr. D. Dr. D.: Very, it is empty. Dr. D.: And with Rin in one ear and the chat in one eye, I am going to have to choose and logout now, brain is disconnected :-S Dr. D.: So good night for this week, everyone. Ronald: good night to you both Ronald: be well Dr. D.: <Rin says bye> Dr. D.: <poof>
Dr. D. left chat session Pamela: goodnight, Rich (and Rin) Daniel Bienvenu: highschool and childhood memories in boxes... I may never look at them again, but I don't want to put these in the trash. Guy B.: He's fast Ronald: well, that's the trouble Daniel Daniel Bienvenu: yes, he's fast. Pamela: wait for a while Daniel - as you age, you will be less opposed to parting with a lot of that stuff Ronald: Whilst going through the stuff in one closet, I found my old highschool yearbook from grade 12 Ronald: and a bunch of old European coinage from our stay in Europe circa 1961 Pamela: I kept my yearbooks and my diploma, and that's it Ronald: there were two Canadian Silver dollars, and a 50 cent piece Daniel Bienvenu: my father is doing a document about our family, and sometimes he wish to have more informations and objects from ancestors. Ronald: I also found $160. in unrolled change Pamela: going through my yearbooks is a laugh Ronald: a profitable afternoon Pamela: I'll say, Ron

Pamela: some predictions for tomorrow were 18C Judy: how are your parents holding up? Pamela: Dad was tired today, I could tell wehn I talked to him, but they have the go-ahead to get him up on his feet and they're doing so Judy: that does happen, Daniel Ronald: damned salesmen BobS: that is GOOD Pamela: so it's a matter of getting him reconditioned so he is steady Judy: that is good news BobS: got to start small and enlarge Judy: baby steps Pamela: it will take a while, he has a lot of ground to make up, but he'll get there Pamela: Mom is looking forward to having him home - I think she's getting tired of having the house to herself Judy: and the running back and forth Pamela: yes, that too Ronald: Sounds positive Pam, re your Dad BobS: mostly the running back and forth BobS: it is easier to stay at home and deal sometimes Pamela: yes, it's taken a while to get this far but it's mostly good news now, Ron Judy: most of us can just hop in the car and take off but she has to contend with other travel Pamela: I must say, I think she enjoys her "day off" when I go on the weekend and she doesn't have to go out Judy: hasn't he been in the hospital for 3 weeks? Pamela: she's taken to cabbing it to the hospital, and coming home on transit BobS: that helps Pamela: four weeks as of this past MOnday BobS: although it might be better the other way around Ronald: has it been that long! BobS: transit when patience is good early in the day and cab straightaway home at night Pamela: I thought so too Bob, but she doesn't do mornings very well and often feels more energetic in the late afternoon Judy: I thought so Pamela: it has Ron BobS: ok whatever floats her boat Daniel Bienvenu: it's election time here... monday we have to vote for a new provincial government. BobS: saw the message yesterday and was encouraged Pamela: Dad and I were trying to figure out the timeline on Sunday for all of this, but much of it before the actual hospital stay is fuzzy BobS: vote NO !!!!!!! Daniel Bienvenu: I don'T know what will be the result, but I know that it's politic and the result may be the less worst rather than the best one. Pamela: what, vote for anarchy? : ) Ronald: Charest vs (what's the other fellow's name) - Not Mario, the other one, the PQ guy? Judy: it does get hard to keep track with this much time Daniel Bienvenu: you mean Boisclair...

Pamela: yup Daniel Bienvenu: he speak and... he's too difficult to understand Pamela: who, Boisclair? Daniel Bienvenu: André Ronald: we're out here in BC (on an island) we don't know much Judy: and after a while you just stop listening Daniel Bienvenu: Jean Charest, André Boisclair, Mario Dumond, etc... Daniel Bienvenu: Dumont, not Dumond... Ronald: ok...now I got 'em. Who's going to win? Daniel Bienvenu: I have no idea who is gonna win Pamela: Daniel do you think the federal budget will affect the outcome of the provincial election? Ronald: minority gov't maybe? Judy: you have to wait until after tomorrow to find out, Ron Ronald: Oh I'll watch it. I'm an election night junkie. Doesn't matter what election...gotta watch it Pamela: heck, they'll be declaring a winner by 8:05 pm if previous elections are anything to go by Ronald: they'll send that one out here, I'm sure Daniel Bienvenu: yes, I think it will affect... but maybe not the actual prime minister BobS: Ron you got to get a REAL life mon............or a good hobby Ronald: I know. it's downright unhealthy Daniel Bienvenu: of course, this new budget help to keep some promizing stuff Charest said, but I don't think that will be enough. Pamela: do you find there's a lot of separatist sentiment still in Quebec, Daniel? Judy: oh, by the way, Pam, I finished my tablecloth today, is now on the table Daniel Bienvenu: I have to say, yes. but I have no idea in which proportion. Pamela: CONGRATULATIONS!

Judy: just do them, don't put them off, Daniel Ronald: easier said than done Pamela: I can think of at least four x-stitch projects which need to get finished Pamela: not to mention all the household improvements I want to do Ronald: roundtuits...... we need roundtuits Pamela: we'll get around to it, Ron : ) Daniel Bienvenu: I can't do them, I prefer watching tv after work than continue programming.

I'm still experimenting. My favorite is with some chocolate chips. BobS: GO GIRL Pamela: : BobS: ok sounds good Daniel.......remember, DON'T overfill or the waffle oozes out and makes big messes Judy: that doesn't sound like breakfast, Daniel Pamela: bring it along to the convention Daniel - I imagine by then you'll have perfected your technique : ) BobS: desert waffles..............
