Judy: Bob has some for sale at ann,hollowdreams.com james: yeah, the presentation apparently went well rich-c: make an offer - I want to get rid of mine but the work is a big hassle james: and they've apparently recovered a wheel of the software from late '84. i guess the intent is to bring everything back online. the nabu system itself has been reconstructed Ron's Real Mac: @Bob - back to the card music for a minute - I never tried it with a MIDI keyboard either. Should work, but do you guys have a MIDI mite to test it on? George: i lost everything when i lost my apartment Judy: he is checking on it now, Ron will be back soon Ron's Real Mac: k Judy: he has the midi mite but has never used it rich-c: yes, I have one but have never opened the box as it iis a sale item Ron's Real Mac: right.

Daniel: thanks Frances... she commented a video I've uploaded in my facebook profil. rich-c: Frances doesn't come on here - she reads teh archives later when Dale gets them up Judy: no piano keyboard here would not know what to do with it Ron's Real Mac: Ok then you probably won't be able to check out the MIDI on the card. Hopefully somebody will Daniel: I know, just wanted to tell you I've uploaded a video. :-) rich-c: but she is on Facebook a lot and looks at your page rgularly, Daniel Daniel: goodnight!

When I came on here tonight I was using SuSE 11.1 booted on the Mac from an external USB Ron's Real Mac: Java was all wrong Ron's Real Mac: So for the moment, I'm forced to use the Operating System that actually came with the computer :( Judy: he is still working on it, works on virtual Adam rich-c: there have been a bunch of revisions to Java last couple of months - don't know how far Dale has updated though Pamela: heavens, what hardship BobS: VIRTUAL ADAM by Steve Pitman works GREAT with the Christmas card Ron's Real Mac: I know Pam, it is a bummer Ron's Real Mac: Ok, where do I get this Virtual ADAM??? rich-c: it's on teh Adamcon 21 disc BobS: for Joe Blenkle site BobS: just a sec rich-c: or twist Bob's arm Judy: bob's basement Ron's Real Mac: Bob (says ron, twisting arm with vengeance)

Yes there have been problems there Pamela: that's good, I think Pamela: brb ron: Here on the island, there are two schools of thought ron: one says Vancouver Island can accommodate 5 million people, and the sooner they get here the better rich-c: I hear tehre are even worries about the market in Fort McMurray ron: the other says that we Islanders should build a fence around ourselves, and anyone who hasn;'t been here for 10 years should be required to leave rich-c: yeah - mine Georgia Strait and Juan de Fuca too! ron: McMurray is boom and bust BobS: kind of a catch 22 problem, yes? Judy: they are two very different ideas james: i think if i were on the inside i'd go with the fence option ron: ya got that right James Judy: don't think that 5 million on the island would be a good idea ron: no, we'd sink the place Judy: hard to get on and off Pamela: is there a happy medium? rich-c: what would they do for a living? commute to Alberta? ron: probably ron: Westjet is running direct flights between Comox and Calgary james: lol Judy: would have to have more ferries ron: Hell, the ones we got don't work half the time ron: Usually on long weekends when traffic is up Judy: flying is a good option rich-c: well, it does tend to keep down the sightseers ron: get's 'em real mad Rich ron: specially when the CEO of BC Ferries is pulling down half a million a year rich-c: yeah, they swear they'll never come back again ; - ) Judy: but sightseers are the money makers ron: been a big dustup over that lately Judy: is a beautiful place to visit rich-c: (my background right now is Birth of the Blues - like that song) ron: if the populus gets mad enough, talk of a bridge heats up ron: awww Rich.... no sympathy eh?
