Bruce: Hi all...anyone who uses or knows about Coleco ADAM??
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to rich-c
rich-c: Welcome, Bruce
rich-c: What brings you to our gathering?
Bruce: well i have a problem that an adam user may be able to help me with
rich-c: I'll give it a try, or we can wait till someone who knows something checks in
rich-c: what is teh problem?
Bruce: well ... the adam was a great machine for me but the time has come
Bruce: when I have to free up the space
Bruce: and rather than throw out a good machine id like to give it to someone
rich-c: happens tyo all of us - where are you?
Bruce: who could use it
Bruce: i am in Whitby ontario
rich-c: OK I am in Toronto and I have someone in Mount Forest who wants an Adam
Bruce: is there anyone in your group who could use anything ,,, its a freebie of course
Bruce: i can give you an inventory of what i have if you or anyone is interested
Bruce: as far as i know, everything is working
rich-c: I could find tehm and forward it on - I'm saying that because outside of Dale Wick, I'm nearest
Bruce: that would be super
Bruce: cause it seems like such a shame to just landfill
Bruce: and goodwill isnt going to want it
Bruce: certainly there are lots of the data tapes
Bruce: some of the software
rich-c: if you wish, you can send me a note - I use the name cleechez and my ISP is
Bruce: that would be fine
Bruce: i will put together something right now and fire it off
rich-c: we spell it out to avoid it being picked up by spam spiders, since teh chat is logged and publicly accessible
Bruce: makes sense
Bruce: i will put together an email and send it off within the next 15 mins
rich-c: anyway, tapes and software are easy to come by, but the hardware is starting to deteriorate
rich-c: right- do you ever get into Toronto or would I have to come fetch it?
Bruce: i work in Markham so i get that far every day
Bruce: i will be glad to drop it off to make it easy if you can use it
moved to room Meeting Place
rich-c: could likely work something out then - I'm retired so have some free time

Judy: he is busy working, right here
Judy: there is some paper work to this job that he has to work on on his own time
rich-c: trying to get teh computer running, again?
Judy: no, is Habitat work, making list and other things for tomorrow
rich-c: so any developments in your job hunt, Judy?
Judy: no, didn't hear a word from that interview last week, oh well
rich-c: I gather most places are a little tardy in saying yes and never quite get around to saying no
Judy: good thing this week had to watch Ryan today

Guy B.: Downloaded the convention form just now
BobS: si senor
Guy B.: Hey Guy F
GuyEph: hey othe guy
BobS: Bruce is who???????
rich-c: Pamela will be pleased - and even more so when you get it in to her

Guy B.: At least we can tell each other napart
Guy B.: apart that is
GuyEph: hehehe
rich-c: he's a visitor from Whitby, Ont., Bob
BobS: see ????? your puter can't spell either !
Guy B.: How's Sandra and the kids?
BobS: cool, I was in Whitby once I think
rich-c: swe did have an Adamcon there, Bob
GuyEph: Guy B: Sandra and the kids are great, thanks!!! Kids are growing up much too fast. Whitby, I love that city... city of Durham Radio one of my favorite places to spend money.
Bruce: hello all ,... just had to grab the phone
Bruce: where is Durham Radio?
rich-c: yes, I'm waiting for a call - have an offer of a 5-1/4 floppy
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to Pamela
Judy: hi, Pam
Guy B.: HI Pam
BobS: to sell ??? or to buy ???
Pamela: greetings everyone
rich-c: hi daughter
BobS: or for FREE
BobS: hi Pam
GuyEph: 1380 Hopkins Street in Whitby, Ontario.
rich-c: oh, when I went to transfer it to my new computer, I couldn't get the existing one out of the old unit
BobS: got the email Pam, BUT, do you know how loiong it took to load that 2 page pdf file on my ADAM ???????
Pamela: still waiting Bob? : )
Bruce: gee...i guess i should get out more..
GuyEph: Bob: Your Adam can read .PDF files? Woah!
GuyEph: Bruce: Don't go there!!! You'll spend all of your money.
BobS: you mean it should not be able to?????? did anyone tell ADAM taht??????
Pamela: Guy, did you get my e-mails?
Pamela: F, that is
rich-c: anyway Bob I went looking for drives on the local Freecycle websites
BobS: no Pam, It only took about 20n minutes
GuyEph: Pam: Yes I did... Haven't had a chance to reply to anything, first free moment I have all week!!!
BobS: just asking ? or watching for offers to take?
Pamela: I'm familiar with the concept, Guy : )
BobS: tis an idea to advertise though.......maybe rescue some of the stuff out in cyberspace
rich-c: oh, on Freecycle you list what you want, to find or get rid of
GuyEph: Pam: Was out for the past 2-3 hours cleaning the pool, just got in, in time for the chat, throw out the garbage, etc... days pass by much too fast.
Pamela: my ice capp is frozen : (
BobS: bummer dear
Guy B.: One thing about the file. You cannot save what you write into it. You can print the form out, but the data will not appear.
BobS: only a month ago you were complaining about all the snow in Montreal Guy..........
rich-c: this month we shipped it all to Calgary, Bob
Pamela: I know you can't save it - it has to be printed
BobS: good show, mon
rich-c: how are we supposed to fill it out then?
Pamela: you can fill it and print it but can't save it
Pamela: or you should be able to
Pamela: if you can't, I screwed up somewhere
GuyEph: BobS: All the snow melted, grass is nice and green, very warm outside...
rich-c: if we cant save it we can't send it
Guy B.: One idea. Print the form out, fill it out. If you have a scanner and PDFCreator. You can scan and save the file as a PDF and send it by e-mail or fax the form to Pam
rich-c: my scanner isn't working - haven't managed the install on the new computer yet
Pamela: actually, Dad, you don't have to do a thing - I think I can probably fill yours out myself : )
Guy B.: There you go Rich. Daughter to the rescue
rich-c: not necessarily - you don't know our plans for the extra days
Judy: you would do that for your dad, Pam?
Pamela: yeah : )
rich-c: and for her mother ; - )
Pamela: oh for heavens sake Dad - just call me!
rich-c: I'm sure we'll find a way, Pam
rich-c: btw, have you and Russell decided about extra days yet?
Judy: was good for a laugh anyway
Pamela: yes we're going down Tuesday and coming home Monday, I believe
rich-c: OK - Ron is coming late Wednesday night, I think, and hanging over after for a few days
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to Meeka
Pamela: we built in a day to cross-border shop : )
Meeka: hello everyone
rich-c: ah Meeka - hello!
Pamela: Hi Meeka
Judy: hi, Meeka
Meeka: how is everyone
rich-c: Dale has finked on posting the transcripts so I've lost your email address
GuyEph: ...<cough> go HABS go <cough cough>
rich-c: give me a repeat now and I can put it on the new computer
rich-c: please, Guy - En avant les Glorieu!!!
Judy: not bad, here, but talked to you this afternoon
Dale: Hi Meeka.
Meeka: lol
Meeka: hi Dale
Guy B.: Hi Meeka
Judy: did you get lots of things done this afternoon?
Meeka: enough anyway ;-)
Pamela: I know Ron is coming in on Wednesday because he wouldn't be there until late Thursday otherwise
Pamela: Bob, do I recall you saying that you're coming in Friday a.m.?
rich-c: I gather he's coming into Hamilton so I guess he's on WestJet all the way
BobS: hoping to hit you about 8am or 9am or so or........depends on sleep, we REALLY need it???????
rich-c: although I imagine he'll have to change planes at some point
BobS: so we could knock out 1 night at the hotel, I sent ya an emial
Pamela: we'll talk : )
BobS: have to work on Thurs, but took Sat off
rich-c: can Judy help with the driving?
BobS: and figured.......GR -> St Kats........5 hrs.........
BobS: NOT ??????
BobS: darn skippy
BobS: prolly about 7 to 8hrs
Judy: yes, I do drive
BobS: she drives ME crazy
Judy: don't really like to drive lately but still do
Pamela: oh oh, you're sleeping in the car now : )
Meeka: you just dont like rain/dark mom
rich-c: I suspect you'll do best coming in via Sarnia
Judy: that is true
rich-c: just remember to fill up at teh last exit before you leave Michigan
BobS: sleep FIRST, then drive like crazy
Judy: but if we are driving thru the night it will be dark
BobS: less we get tired, and may sack out some along the way
rich-c: gas is $1.20 a litre here today, and pricier outside Toronto
Judy: it went up to 3.60 in some of the station here
Pamela: I'm so not looking forward to filling the tank next week for the trailer trip : (
Judy: make that 3.70
Bruce: rich-c and Dale... I just popped an email your way...please give it a look when you can
rich-c: I know, here it's been going up 4 cents a litre a day of late
Dale: Sounds good Bruce.
Meeka: maybe we will get to go and Doug can help Dad drive then you wont have to mom
rich-c: I get my email on teh other computer so can't see it now; Frances is using it
Pamela: Meeka, I'm counting on you two to be there : )
rich-c: yes, if you have four drivers to spell each otehr that should be great, Meeka
Judy: that would be great, we really hope you do
Meeka: i know, but work though me a monkey wrench this week so we will have to see how thingws play out
rich-c: meeka, I still need your email address again
Judy: I know
Meeka: I was laid off for at least a month
Meeka: mslopsema at
Meeka: remove the spaces and replace the @
rich-c: got it, thanks - maybe I can send you some Adamcon photos now
Meeka: sure
rich-c: actually we have some on both computers - I may send a bunch and leave you to choose those you want
rich-c: I promise not to act hurt if you don't post them all
Meeka: thats fine rich
rich-c: I finally installed Picasa on the new machine and it picked up all my photo files
Pamela: how do you like it, Dad?
rich-c: the new machine? so far, I am quite happy with it but still have much to add
Pamela: no, Picasa - I know you like the new machine : )
rich-c: you do know that I transferred "all" the stuff from teh old machine to my external hard disc?
Pamela: no
rich-c: oh - I have my reservations - Google is too snoopy and aggressive - but it is very efficient and useful
rich-c: I do not intend to store any of my pictures with Google on the Web, though
rich-c: they are mostly your mother's and we burn them to CDs at intervals
BobS: good choice
Judy: Meeka is working on transferring all of our pictures from slides
BobS: cd's are alost free and hopefully permanent
rich-c: yes, it sure takes a pretty humungous bunch of photos to fill a CD
Pamela: I've saved all my pics to the computer and to a thumb drive
Judy: will sure take a lot less space than the slides that we have now
BobS: but thumb drive is eraseable
GuyEph left chat session
rich-c: well, you can now get flash drives very cheaply - saw a 2 gig for $12.95 t'other day
Pamela: but much more portable
Meeka: according to the manufacturers cds are good for about 7 years dad
Meeka: although Doug says they should last longer
Judy: that all?
rich-c: a hard disc is erasable too, but it pretty well hass to be a deliberate action
Bruce: Nice meeting you all...thanks for your help rich-c and Dale. Hope to speak to you soon.
Pamela: you too
Pamela: Bruce
Pamela: (darned enter key)
rich-c: terrific, Bruce, glad you chose to come calling
Meeka: night Bruce
Bruce left chat session
rich-c: Pam, I saw Herman on your Adamcon list - is he a possible?
Pamela: I don't know but he asked to be included on the list so I hope so
rich-c: he's been awfully quiet for a long time now, but has been lurking on the list
rich-c: wouldn't it be something if Herman and George decided to come?
Pamela: I would love that
rich-c: I reckon that all of us would
BobS: Herman was last @ 15 ???? GK last came to Texas for 16..........would like to see them both again
Judy: yes, it would be good to see both of them
BobS: maybe Herman before taht........was at 11
BobS: not 15
rich-c: btw, what's with Dr. D? I sent him an email a couple of days ago but no reply yet
BobS: hasn't been here in what?,,,,,,,, amonth or more?
Pamela: he's crazy busy Dad - he's working pretty much around the clock to free up some time to visit Rin this weekend
rich-c: well he has of course been spending a lot of time commuting to Toronto
Pamela: he was up about a month ago
rich-c: and of course no word on Rin's papers
Pamela: He was my first reply this morning
rich-c: ah - I needed some technical information from him - maybe I'll get lucky
Judy: will the papers ever come thru?
Pamela: I just tried to copy part of his e-mail, but no go
Daniel Bienvenu left chat session
Pamela: there were a couple more items they had to submit and then it's a waiting game until they're called for the interview
Judy: this is nuts how long it is taking
Pamela: among other things she had to get her passport changed over from MacLean to Drushel
Pamela: and then she had to get her tax ID number
BobS: Christmas 2010 is coming also..........LATER !!!!! darn (expletive deleted) ins people
rich-c: have to talk to George Bush about that - it's his government making the call (or stall)
BobS: not George, jsut bureacrats in general.......ol' Hilly and Billy wouldn't do anything different
Dale: Geroge Bush's imigration/green card process seems to be especially slow, compared to what was happening when Clinton was in
Judy: we have to keep dangerous people out you know
Dale: At least from my various friends' experiences
BobS: well.......lets' not forget Sept 11 to screw weverything up
rich-c: yes, well part of it is security theatre and part of it is pandering to the anti-immigration lobby
Pamela: oh dont get me started
Pamela: I'll rant for hours
BobS: THAT totally shut down most easy entry and most of our freedoms to move around unmolested
rich-c: don't worry, Bob, there's lots more to come
BobS: we have met the enemy ......... and it is our own gov't
BobS: that is what scares me
Judy: you should try to get out of our airport since 911
BobS: flying is not even fun anymore
rich-c: Frances watches a security blog - - some of the stories are - well, wild
Judy: and they keeep coming up with new dumb ideas, first it was shoes and now it is liquid
rich-c: the real security professionals are inventing new swear words every day
BobS: we have the distinction of having the oldest moron in the TSA...right here in Grand Rapids
Pamela: lucky you
Judy: not!!!
rich-c: you should look at Schneier - it's really very interesting
Judy: that is why we try to drive wherever we go lately
Pamela: I think Mom sent me a link
rich-c: on Fridays he has a special on squid
rich-c: I think you'll find the Port Huron/ Sarnia crossing the easiest for Adamcon
Pamela: squid?
rich-c: though homeward bound with more time you might want to go via Lewiston and save on gas
rich-c: squid
BobS: tis the shortest probably also
Pamela: do I want to know?
rich-c: no, I'm pretty sure using Port Huron is fastest and easist driving by a long chalk
rich-c: much straighter for you folks, and there's a useful cutoff from 401 down to teh Niagara area
rich-c: brb - gotta get a beer
Pamela: yes, although
Pamela: Guy might be better to come through the US
Pamela: being that much further south
BobS: thought that Pt Huron/
BobS: sarnia woulod be
BobS: the shortest and fastest route
rich-c: for you, yes, for Guy, have to see what Mapquest says
Pamela: bonus of crossing the border late, too - less traffic late at night
rich-c: though Port Huron would save on Interstate tolls
rich-c: yes, although they can stall you - want to see if you're drunk
rich-c: got to manage your gas to buy as little as possible in Canada, but stay on Canadian roads to save tolls and time
Pamela: I don't think they'll look twice at teh Slopsemas
BobS: we look too old and dumb??????
Pamela: too white : )
rich-c: no, you just don't look like Arabs
BobS: ahso
Judy: that is a good thing
Pamela: oh yes
Guy B.: Trying to figure out what would be better. Flying to Buffalo and renting a car to get to St. Catharines or driving all the way there
Pamela: boy despite all that caffeine I'm still dopy
rich-c: much better to look Dutch - teh Dutch are very highly thought of in Canada
Pamela: if you drive will you bring your car?
Judy: we are all Dutch so that should go in our favor
rich-c: how do teh car rental folks feel about your taking a rental car across the border?
Pamela: no problem from what I've seen Dad
Pamela: I"m sure they're used to it in Buffalo
Dale: As long as they know, anywhere in Canada/US/Mexico is okay.
Dale: Other places require special permission. Though I've never tried to drive to Panama.
rich-c: I'd say if you can afford teh time, Guy, drive, and avoid the airport hassles
Pamela: my instincts agree, Guy
Dale: It'd be worth it from Chicago I bet, since a direct flight wouldn't be too hard to find.
rich-c: though for you it would be a pretty challenging trip, you'd be better doing it in two days
Pamela: doesn't that negate the value of driving?
rich-c: would also mean you could time your border crossings and return out of rush hour
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to Bob
Bob requested to ban BobS
Guy B. confirmed ban
Dale confirmed ban
Pamela confirmed ban
Guy B.: Welcome back Bob
Meeka confirmed ban
rich-c confirmed ban
Bob: stupid computers.......hibernate.......stupid
Pamela: gotta talk more, Bob : )
rich-c: well leave it pl;ugged in when you're online and working it hard
Dale: The airport isn't that big of a deal, though I'll never get used to the idea that flights to the US require removing my shoes.
Meeka: no Pam, needs to plug it in
Pamela: ah
Bob: airports SUCK
Dale: It's the wierdest thing ever somehow.
Guy B.: I would have the car checked to be sure that everything is Ok. Just got through having over $800 in repairs on the engine last month
Meeka: no power left means auto hibernate for laptops
rich-c: either way Guy, don't forget your passport - you need it to go home
Guy B.: And I do have my passport
Pamela: wow, Guy
Guy B.: Check engine light was the culprit
rich-c: these days, Pam, that's not a big bill, I regret to say
Pamela: although I guess these days that's not that much
Pamela: I should know : )
rich-c: fortunately my engine is all but brand new
Guy B.: The gas mileage is where it's suppose to be now, but I'll have the belts checked to be sure there are Ok
Pamela: in the year since I bought mine, I've put less than 10,000 kms on it
Guy B.: The car is approaching 46000 miles
rich-c: the rest of the van is 13 years old, but the engine is re3cent and low miles
rich-c: I use it so much I buy gas every other month, whether it needs it or not
Pamela: I've been using very little gas recently
Pamela: I think I last bought gas three weeks ago
rich-c: that's a useful strategy
Pamela: I'm hoping to get away with not filling till we go to the trailer next Saturday
rich-c: fortunately the Niagara Peninsula is pretty compact, so we should nto use too much there
rich-c: going up for the season opening, are you?
Pamela: no, that was this past weekend
rich-c: oh, were you up there then?
Pamela: I called Barbara last night to commiserate on the horrible weekend they must have had : )
Pamela: no, Lin and Barbara went
Pamela: they always open
Dale: The gas price seems to be climbing like crazy, despite the claims from Dan McTague that targets $1.12 over the summer.
Pamela: oh yeah, that'll happen : (
rich-c: that's wht I'd thought - and of course you were here last weekend
rich-c: I SO lose track of time these days
Pamela: there just aren't enough hours in my days these days
Meeka: there never are Pam
rich-c: well I don't think there is any honest explanation for the rise of oil prices on the commodity markets the last few weeks
Pamela: my day went by so fast today, it was half past noon before I realized it was lunchtime
Pamela: what does honest have to do with it????
rich-c: sometimes there are reasonable explanations for oil price variations
Pamela: I still have to sort out the T-shirt situation and the banner
rich-c: but the present deal seems to be jack it higher and see how much more we can gouge
rich-c: well Dale's here, maybe he can offer advice
Pamela: of course - because less than a billion dollars in profits would just be wrong
Pamela: I have already partaken of Dale's wisdom : )
Dale: I advice you to buy commodities exchange futures before they go up in price, then sell before they fall in price.
Dale: It works really well.
rich-c: so I've heard, but everyone who tries it seems to get it backwards
Dale: I don't know about the banner. It's easy enough to do a banner at a sign shop. Just tell them how big you want it and they'll do it for you.
rich-c: and then see how much it takes to ransom it?
Guy B.: Now I have to see if my bank can convert US dollars to Canadian
Pamela: for the convention fee, Guy? Get a money order from the post office or the bank in Cdn $
rich-c: of course tehy can, although don't forget your credit card does it automatically
rich-c: and US dollard a pretty generally accepted here, often at a good exchange rate
Bob: but Pam prolly can't take credit cards
Guy B.: I'll check and see to be sure
Pamela: nope, not set up for those, unfortunately
Bob: see?
rich-c: no, Pam can't but she can handle US dollars, no sweat
Pamela: for spending $, order from the bank in advance
Pamela: no, I want Canadian dollars please
Pamela: the exhange rate is fluctuating enough that I don't want anyone to be short
rich-c: anyway Pam, if Guy pays the convention price in US dollars, you'll make enough in value difference to cover teh exchange charge
rich-c: Pam, if you want to take US dollars, we'll swap with you even up - we still havve our US account
Pamela: we can discuss it at a later date Dad
rich-c: though it would be handier if US dollar stuff were made out to us so we could deposit it easier
rich-c: no big deal Pam, whatever works for you
rich-c: Dale, about Bruce's ADam - do you have someone to pass it on to or do you want me to do it?
Pamela: did everyone go to sleep?
Bob: yup
Meeka: nope
rich-c: I'm waiting for Dale to ansswer
Pamela: well that's definitive : )
Guy B.: I found a website to convert to and from. It would be about US$392 to 400 Canadian. Of course, this always changes
Judy: I am going to sign off now so night all
Pamela: goodnight Judy
Meeka: night mom
Judy left chat session
Pamela: the exchange rate is very close right now Guy
rich-c: Guy, just ask Pam in a separate message
rich-c: actually I think that's the bank rate you havwe there, Guy - your retail rate would be more
rich-c: the banks usually charge 2 - 2-1/2% exchange fee
Bob: well gang, tis time I hit the sack here in GRE also
rich-c: oops, missed - Bob, say goodnight to Judy for me
Pamela: goodnight Bob
Bob: ok will do
Bob: over and out
rich-c: and goodnight to you too
Bob left chat session
Meeka: night dad
Pamela: so Meeka with the layoff does that mean you're concerned about not being able to afford to come?
Guy B.: Well folks, going to go. Have to take Annie out soon. See you all next week
Pamela: goodnight Guy
Guy B.: Me too
rich-c: night Guy, see you next week
Guy B.: Poof
Guy B. left chat session

rich-c: well, sort of, and is Dale really here?
Meeka: yup, they told me on monday about 1/2 hour before i was sceduled to leave that it was effictive on tuesday
Dale: I don't know about Bruce's.
Pamela: wow
Dale: I'll look over his email.
Pamela: nothing like a little notice
rich-c: well, do you want it or shall I take it? he works in Markham so I can pick it up
Dale: I just don't know. I don't have a specific plan for it though.
rich-c: I have an inquirer who can use it, but it's handier for you
Meeka: ok, i will
Pamela: any way folks, it's a school night and I should be in bed
Meeka: night
Pamela: Dad, I'll talk to you later in the week
rich-c: good enough Pam, and I'll tell your mother you'll be away
Pamela: next weekend Dad - first weekend in May

rich-c: Dale, do you want me to look after it, then?
Dale: I'll leave it to you then I guess.
rich-c: OK, I'll let Bruce know and deal with it from there
rich-c: guess that finishes the evening's business, then
rich-c: so I will bid you a good night
Dale: Goodnight then.
