Melanie: she's doing great. thanks for asking. i should call and tell her to get online. rich-c: yes, she can come and gloat (though not too much) over the northerners Daniel Bienvenu: I had one, long time ago. After the treatments, I was sure I was fine. During the class, my right lung seems to let go waves of liquids, visible from the side.. I realize that it's gross... I'm sorry. Well, the doctor said that it was normal sometimes after a pneumonia.... if he said so. Since then, I wasn't the same, problem to breath normally while running... I had so much problems in sports, it was a pain moraly more than physically. Daniel Bienvenu: Here, because of the snow storm we still have... there is about 1 feet of snow everywhere. rich-c: well, as I mentioned I was sick enough to give up cigarettes and could never tolerate them again

Daniel Bienvenu: the adamcon disk you gave to us this summer? Well, it never works for me... was unreadable. Judy: I have been crocheting also, you will have to tell her HI from us Meeka: lol, i do that a couple times a month too :-P FosterTheSnowMan: Yep, it's snowing as we speak, another 10 CM or so more for tonight. rich-c: Daniel, do you have an Adam and a disc drive? BobS: WORK ???????????????????????/ such a four letter word Melanie: i callled her just now but she was having dinner and sounded pooped...said hello Daniel Bienvenu: I'll guess I did a mistake by typing my previous message then. Daniel Bienvenu: Salut Guy BobS: will have to remedy that Daniel FosterTheSnowMan: Hello Dan.
(Everyone welcomes FosterTheSnowMan) Judy: hi, GuyF Meeka: hello Daniel Bienvenu: pourquoi The SnowMan? FosterTheSnowMan: Dan: Someone explain it to him... I'm tired. :D rich-c: a Montreal, il neige aussi Meeka: hey Mel, I finally finished that big cross stitch project I was working on at AC Melanie: i want to get the rosetta stone lesson and learn a little french before our next meeting. Daniel Bienvenu: how much snow did you get where you are actually? FosterTheSnowMan: I think we got 30 CM approx. Could be 35. Melanie: send me a pic of the finished product. bet its beautiful rich-c: en anglais, il y a un chanson - "Frosty the Snowman" Daniel Bienvenu: that's about 1 feet Daniel Bienvenu: like here Meeka: yes, turned out nice, havent found the right frame for it yet though Judy: good luck with that Melanie, I took a year of it and don't remember much of any of it FosterTheSnowMan: About 1 foot yeah. Took out my newly acquired tracked Honda snowblower and put it through it's paces. Lots of punch for such a small machine. FosterTheSnowMan: (merci Rich) rich-c: anyway they don't speak French in Montreal, they speak joual - French they speak in Paris Melanie: oops, sorry Daniel Bienvenu: well, 1 foot - 2 feet... it's still going so , soon I'll say 2 feet anyway. rich-c: (I'm teasing Guy and Daniel, Melanie) Melanie: i'm so gullible (sp?) FosterTheSnowMan: Sorry to contradict RIch, but we speak French in Quebec. Although with a different accent than people from France, it is still considered French. We are French and part of the "Francophonie". Right Dan? ;) rich-c: the Quebec accent is so strong, the snooty French say it sounds like a horse (cheval) talking - corrupted to joual Guy B.: HI Guy F BobS: now THAT is rude Daniel FosterTheSnowMan: Depends Rich. Go to France in certain regions and you'll have a hard time understanding anything they say. FosterTheSnowMan: Hey Guy B. How's everything? Daniel Bienvenu: Yeah, and I've an objection about french in France... it's not french to say "top 10", "best of", and all sort of words that makes no sense like "footing" instead of walking . Meeka: mom- got two of the three boys done today :-) BobS: choppin??????? Judy: you went out shopping today? rich-c: hey, travel from the Outaouais to Gaspe nad they'll almost mutually incomprehensible Melanie: brave soul FosterTheSnowMan: Yeah, French (Parisians) are very fond of using english words in their "French".
moved to room Meeting Place Meeka: yup....ok, sorta.......does on-line count? Judy: probably wasn't busy
changed username to Pamela FosterTheSnowMan: Rich: Very true...
(Everyone welcomes Pamela) Judy: that is cheating Meeka: hi pam. Meeka: is not Judy: hi, Pam Melanie: smart Pamela: hi everyone BobS: PAMELA Pamela: Hi, Melanie! Melanie: hi PAM BobS: howdy BobS: Jean doing good healthwise Melanie?????? Pamela: I see we have M. Foste too rich-c: hello daughter - things go OK today on the GO? FosterTheSnowMan: Language evolves, warps, changes, etc... I think we're doing fine with the french language, we haven't mutilated it. Sure some accents are inconprehensible (such as my neighbor in front whom I can't even understand). Pamela: no problem Papa Judy: we stayed in this afternoon and I made soup and banket Pamela: what about you with groceries? FosterTheSnowMan: Hiya Pam, dropped in to say hi... Melanie: yep Jean is healthy and happy! BobS: GREAT Pamela: and yourself, Melanie? Meeka: i only went out to get doug, roads werent to bad at the time Pamela: polishing your snowblower, Guy? FosterTheSnowMan: I saw a few accidents in my area of town. BobS: Blizzard 2009.....maybe won't even materialize Judy: that is what Mandy said when she came to pick up Ryan FosterTheSnowMan: No, I used my snowblower today actually.... Melanie: getting over pneumonia...yuck! Meeka: yuck Daniel Bienvenu: talking about accents... is there an example, a video or an audio clip, of the accent in Utah? Pamela: oh dear, yuck is right Judy: that is the pits, Melanie FosterTheSnowMan: What's in Utah Dan for you to be interested in their accents? BobS: bummer dear Melanie: typical nurse, put off treatment too long BobS: and WHY did you get that???? in semi warm climate Judy: not good rich-c: oh, the Americans have strong regional accents too, especially in the south Pamela: darn, brb FosterTheSnowMan: Texas! Melanie: lots of airports and sick people! FosterTheSnowMan: New Yoyk accent, gotta love it. Daniel Bienvenu: I need to know this accent.... to make something credible instead of just funny. rich-c: but I remember sitting in a Times Square coffee shop one and realizing I could tell who was from each borough of New York Judy: on TV today they were telling you what to do if flying BobS: and New Yourk......where they ahve watta FosterTheSnowMan: Yeah, if they come from New York or Jeysey. Meeka: hey mel, you fly southwest a lot, is there a weight limit for bags? Melanie: yes but it's pretty generous. first 2 bags are free Judy: one was to cover the seat and tray and wipe down the light and anything else you would touch FosterTheSnowMan: Love the way they pronounce "coffee". Lived in NYC for 6 months, still get flashbacks sometimes. Meeka: ok, but is there a WEIGHT limit Daniel Bienvenu: So, if there is a way to let me hear of the accent in Utah, typical expressions maybe, something I can refer to, let me know. Melanie: good ideas! i'll do that. thanks FosterTheSnowMan: Call someone in Utah and talk to them. rich-c: nope - the New Jersey accent is different from New York - I still have traces of mine FosterTheSnowMan: I know it's different... Daniel Bienvenu: I don't know anyone from utah FosterTheSnowMan: Call a Tim Horton's in Utah, ask the girl something and you'll hear her accent. FosterTheSnowMan: Problem is... there are no T.H. in Utah. FosterTheSnowMan: But you get the idea. Pamela: was gonna say, I don't think they've spread that far yet Daniel Bienvenu: At which point we can say it's more than one foot and start saying feet? Is 1.5 foot is 1.5 feet? FosterTheSnowMan: On foot... 2 feet, no? FosterTheSnowMan: 1.5 foot would be a foot and a half. rich-c: anyway, the Utah accent is pretty close to the midwestern accent - Bob or Guy would not seem out of place Pamela: once you get beyond one, it's plural rich-c: but being Mormons they say "bless you" more and swear differently FosterTheSnowMan: how does a mormon swear? Pamela: with a Utah accent, of course! BobS: same way as you Guy FosterTheSnowMan: "Aye Jebedyah, I feel like swearing, but I don't think I can." Daniel Bienvenu: momon... these guys who belives in magical underpants? BobS: say WHAT????? magic undies !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pamela: actually Daniel I think Utah is pretty accentless, if the Osmond siblings are anything to go by rich-c: now, they are a splinter sect of Protestantism - founded by Joseph Smith in upstate New York FosterTheSnowMan: They handy with wood... make awesome mantles. rich-c: forced to move cross-country to escape prejudice - believe in the Book of Mormon Melanie: meeka, weight limit 50lbs Meeka: ty Pamela: remember Meeka, never pack more than your husband can lift : ) FosterTheSnowMan: Hmmm, I'm confusing Mormons with Amish... just realized that. Melanie: i like that motto Meeka: that sould be fairly easy to stay under Pamela: I live bye it : ) BobS: HA, I told ya Meeka........... Meeka: lol, he can lift quite a bit though BobS: and she thinks us old people dont' know Meeka: he still yound a muscled Meeka: young** FosterTheSnowMan: Dan: Tu connais la toune de F. Perusse... "Y'a donc ben des mongoles"? Meeka: I didnt say you didnt know rich-c: the Mormons got their revelation from the Angel Moroney, in a vision Daniel Bienvenu: GuyF : Oui, je connais Pamela: glad I'm not the only ones whose fingers are not communicating with their brain BobS: si Meeka: just making sure, she flys a lot more than you do FosterTheSnowMan: Dan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dHtnTYYt0M Judy: I have been having a lot of trouble with the fingers tonight BobS: no lie, I LOVE flying, but now HATE getting TO the plane BobS: so rather walk Pamela: I did a lot of typing today and spent half my time correcting myself Pamela: very frustrating Judy: going thru security BobS: well then type better Daniel Bienvenu: subtitled... cool Melanie: did you hear about TSA putting their security docs online for all to see? Pamela: some days are better than others FosterTheSnowMan: Dan: Ya man! Judy: yes, bone heads BobS: a little, what was that all about????? rich-c: security depends on the airport and airline and destination Pamela: brb rich-c: I don't think Daniel hit much when he flew to Hamilton for our Niagara Adamcon Melanie: info about xray capabilities, who to focus on, examples of ids, etc. Daniel Bienvenu: Traveling by plane was fun... Actually no trouble, but it was my first time, a little bit nervous and I didn't know what to do and where to go. Melanie: apparently it had been available online since march09...boneheads rich-c: I hear my carnuts buddies talking about their security experiences - some just won't fly any more - adn such language! Judy: and they just found out? Daniel Bienvenu: so in Utah... they use a midwestern-like accent. rich-c: oh no, they are business flyers and have no choice but to tough it out - but they hate it with a passion Melanie: some civilian was blogging about it. but not to worry disciplinary action has been taken and the document was outdated Daniel Bienvenu: GuyF : Ecris-moi un courrier electronique quand tu en auras l'occasion. FosterTheSnowMan: OK Dan BobS: TSA is outdated. they are literallyone or two steps behind anyone with a bad idea.....call it knee jerk reaction Pamela: language like that gets provoked a lot at airports it seems Daniel Bienvenu: did any of you get my techincal information about sound, I've tried to send it to the mailing list but I've got only one which was kinda part 2. rich-c: So Pam, I haven't been out, did the roads dry before they froze? BobS: oh yes I saw it and got blurry eyed Pamela: still wet when i came home Papa and R's not home yet so don't know Pamela: hope so Melanie: no daniel, didn't get anything rich-c: yes, I have to go get milk tomorrow or Friday Pamela: that's a very interesting noise the microwave is making Pamela: hmm BobS: B BobS: OO BobS: M rich-c: I hope it's no more offensive than a ding! Pamela: nope, H Daniel Bienvenu: Did Bob just explode? Pamela: I Pamela: S Pamela: S Pamela: S Pamela: S Pamela: stopped now BobS: yup Pamela: must have something to do with the Zip n Steam bag rich-c: you nuking a snake? Pamela: you can bet any snake I nuke won't be hissing any more! Pamela: although I hear they're better roasted Melanie: you sound like you're in the wild west rich-c: anyway, I gather if you want to see security done properly, look at El Al Pamela: and it doesn't ding, it peeps Pamela: very annoying sometimes Pamela: like now Pamela: brb Melanie: rich, that's what i've heard rich-c: Frances reads a blog wehre teh security experts let their hair down - they can't understand why Obama doesn't can the lot Melanie: let their hair down? Daniel Bienvenu: Well, I was juggling with sounds coleco can produce and I did start writing something interresting that can be used for some Coleco games. The first message I did write contains a lot of numbers, calculating only the perception of the volume and how the combination of 3 channels volume can be used to produce "voice" and all sort of sounds not Coleco-like. My second message did have links to pictures showing graphs of the numbers from my previous message. rich-c: it's called schneier.com, and they talk shop Melanie: i"ll check that out BobS: it isTSA screeners?????? or true securyt analists?? Daniel Bienvenu: I've tested with a real Coleco and the values I'm using are pretty much right. rich-c: it is people who are competent in security, not government units Melanie: i bet they don't fly rich-c: they do fly and know exactly whats wrong in the process - but they also know the real risks Daniel Bienvenu: I'm testing the second part of my message, and I'm getting some difficulties, some tiny imperfections due to the time the cpu needs to push the new data to the sound chip.

This is the best one so far Daniel Bienvenu: the picture was taken during spring... almost no grass, still have snow. MacRonald: They were running around Nanaimo a couple of months ago, but not up here in the boonies yet MacRonald: The Google earth shot of our place was taken in 2005. Pamela: LOL - they have to re-do parts of Toronto Pamela: the pics they took were during the garbage strike MacRonald: Still no buildings on the place, but it has been cleared rich-c: they have been around Toronto lately and are now on line, but I haven't looked Pamela: Christy Pits rink is full of garbage Guy B.: Pam, I inserted a USB external drive into my Athlon and it took a little long for WinXP to recognize it. I have a database on there and wanted to update the labels MacRonald: not exactly the side of the city you want to show, is it Pam. Pamela: not so much Ron Pamela: it should recognize right away Guy BobS: and that is how Toronto will be known forevermore Pamela: wonder what's happening MacRonald: yup Pamela: Google has agreed to re-take the photos Bob rich-c: I never have any problem getting USB devices recognized, unless I mess up myself Judy: I wonder why?

BobS: hik Dale BobS: he left long time ago Dale rich-c: Daniel is really excited with his sound programming Dale: Yes, he's been telling me about it. BobS: is this something he just figured out how to do? rich-c: actually telling us all, not that we understand, but it's nice to know it's there BobS: it went over myhead Dale: I did some experiments a few months ago, but they were bad quality and not really smaller. rich-c: it's a new aspect I think, Bob Dale: So now he's working on better quality, but the same size. BobS: well good for Daniel....go for it rich-c: Daniel is a very high-end programmer, basically Dale: Maybe that's not how he described it, but that's it in a nutshell. rich-c: anyway, I have a disc drive that needs cleaning... rich-c: so I think I had better bid you both good night, gentlemen BobS: try to clean the head with a head cleaning disk Dale: Good night Richard.
