rich-c: anyway, I wouldn't trust the fire car (yet) on a long trip
BobS: take a fire extinguisher...................no porllem
Meeka: it looks good though rich
rich-c: wasn't thinking of fire hazard - more some hidden slightly scorched connection quietly giving way and no clue as to why the car wont go
Meeka: you cant tell anymore that there was a fire
rich-c: that may be so, but there can be hidden damage that will take a certain number of miles to surface
moved to room Meeting Place
BobS: nope, cut out the 5 wires that burnt and replaced
rich-c: remember you are going to be pretty time-critical and can't afford en route delays

Meeka: vaughan**
Judy: yes, you may even have them, if you want them
rich-c: a bit bette4r, thanks - saw teh doctor yesterday
Meeka: sure, I will "rescue" any books you want rid of
rich-c: he saw my 48 hour Holter was as good a resylt as coupld be expected
Judy: sounds good, Meeka
Judy: what did the doc say?
rich-c: yes, I have A-fib, but it is as well controlled as we can reasonably expect
Judy: that's good, Rich
rich-c: he was very relieved though when I mentioned we were going to make the run to Montreal a two day trip
BobS: the best controlled is permanent A-fib..........and then control the heart rate
Judy: my mind is bad this week, haven't been able to do the Sudoku at all
BobS: you are coming in on Tuesday ??????????????????
rich-c: yes, I'll be arriving there Tuesday, and staying through the following Wednesday
rich-c: Montreal est une ville tres interessant

rich-c: I hope and expect so, all teh rooms are supposed to have internet
Meeka: rich, have you heard what the weather is posta be while we are there?
rich-c: I've told Melanie to expect very little demand for coffee, a lot for Diet Pepsi, Diet 7-Up, Orange Crush and Iced Tea
BobS: MS Maps saays we should have drive time of 12 hours
Chief Blackhawk: Goal Flyers, 2-1
moved to room Meeting Place
Judy: yes,we have to know how to pack, what kind of clothes to bring
changed username to Daniel B
Daniel B: ???
Chief Blackhawk: Be back
Meeka: hi daniel
BobS: he should be here
rich-c: salut, Daniel, comment ca va?
Judy: hi, Daniel
Meeka: we were asking if anyone knew what the weather was gonna be like next weekend daniel
BobS: oh danny boy, oh danny boy, the pipes are calling,.......................
Daniel B: bonsoir
BobS: have ya got a wee bit of the irish in ya????????
Daniel B: nobody can predict the weather after 10 days with precision... or be very lucky.
rich-c: OK, you want www.weatheroffice.ec.gc.ca/ and go from there to the individual cities
rich-c: Environment Canada only forecasts five days in advance, feels anything more is not worth it
Daniel B: It's a math puzzle
BobS: IF they are as accurate as the US weather service................FORGET IT
Meeka: we know that, but we need to know what kinda clothes to pack
rich-c: well, in Toronto they are better than Accuweatehr and Weather channel by a huge lot
rich-c: and you can get local weather radar, provincial weatehr, satellite photos
BobS: at this timeof year, what is the normal weather heatwise??????????????????
rich-c: they are more likely to be a bit off in their temperature estimates if anything
rich-c: pack your parka and shorts - anything can happen and likely will
Chief Blackhawk: Hawks goal. Tied at 2
Meeka: ok, i am bad at conversions, what is 25* mean
rich-c: Whew, Guy
rich-c: OK to convert: thke the C, divide by 5, multiply by 9, add 32
rich-c: it is not as difficult as you think
Meeka: oh geeze i gotta do math too :-P
Judy: 77
rich-c: e.g. 25/5 = 5, x9 = 45, +32 = 77, OK?
Meeka: thanks
BobS: just remember 24 to 30 is summer to us
Judy: that sounds like a nice number
BobS: or 28
Daniel B: Well, it's easy if you think about it. Below 0 degrees at 1 ATM it turns water into ice, it's 32F for you.
rich-c: I still think in farenheit, myself, so I'm forever converting
Daniel B: And -40F is -40C, same
BobS: I NEVER want to see that number on my thermometer
Meeka: me either
rich-c: you'll be able to tell it's there when teh street lights go out
Daniel B: I did saw it a couple of times, but it became rare since I'm an adult.
rich-c: they can't maintain their arc when it'sd below -40
Daniel B: cars refuse to start
Daniel B: windows frosted
Judy: that is pretty cold
Daniel B: it's so cold, it burns
Judy: I bet it does
rich-c: you spit, it freezes before it hits the ground
Judy: don't want to ever experience that cold
rich-c: I never have and I'm in no hurry to do so
Daniel B: Well, if the Gulf Stream decided to stop or even reverse its course, you may experience it.
Judy: don't wish that on us, Daniel
rich-c: oh, we'll just throw a match in it and let teh burning oil heat us
Judy: that would change our temp zone
Daniel B: and who is undefined?
Daniel B: someone watching only?
rich-c: whoever it is hasn't signed in, likely went away some time ago
Judy: we have new pond plants that would not make it thru that cold
BobS requested to ban <undefined>
Chief Blackhawk confirmed ban
rich-c confirmed ban
Judy confirmed ban
rich-c: doubt it, we harddly ever have any lurkers - they all want to join in sooner or later
Meeka confirmed ban
Judy: and if they are just spying on us they need to be numped
rich-c: although Justin has yet to show up tonight
Daniel B: Did someone replied to Dr.D. ? I can't access my emails at the moment
moved to room Meeting Place
changed username to Pamela
Daniel B: Pamela?
Meeka: hi pam
BobS: Daniel, did you get the message that Dr D wants to do a session???????????????????
Judy: hi, Pam
rich-c: hi daughter
Pamela: tis me
Pamela: hi everyone
Judy: how is Pam?
Pamela: disorganized, thank you : )
BobS: HEY PAM !!!!
Judy: why?
BobS: oh oh
rich-c: I told him to bring small toys that would interest the gamers, but no suggestions on what to talk about
Pamela: oh heck, why not?
Judy: just a question
rich-c: he and Erin are taking an American route through Syracuse - big tolls but smaller gas, hotel and food prices
Pamela: no packing list, no laundry done, stacks of things still to be done and a week to go
rich-c: count your bleesings, we leave Monday morning - and this is teh Canadian GP weekend
Judy: I am behind on my laundry also but am busy making curtains
Meeka: i am almmost caught up on mine
Pamela: oh, and we're supposed to go to the trailer this weekend
BobS: oh no, the WHOLE us way would be to got to Vurlington VT and then north
rich-c: Frances doesn't like weather like today's because she can't hang her laundry out
Pamela: is anyone planning to drive through Ontario?
Chief Blackhawk: Goal Hawks. 3-2
moved to room Meeting Place
Judy: was working on it Tuesday and lost power so that put a stop to it and other things got in the way
changed username to LucMiron
rich-c: good, Guy, cheer tehem on!
LucMiron: Yo!
Chief Blackhawk: Hi Luc
Meeka: u lost power?
Meeka: hi luc
Pamela: Hi Luc
rich-c: allo Kuc, ca va bien?
LucMiron: Oui Kich
Pamela: LOL
Daniel B: bonsoir
LucMiron: So how is everyone?
BobS: driving to Sarnia and EAST straight thru the mess
Judy: hi, Luc
Meeka: good...you?
LucMiron: Pretty good.
Judy: good
rich-c: I'm planning to leave Monday, overnight in Kingston, arrive Tuesday
Pamela: FYI Bob all the rest stops between Toronto and Kingston are closed
LucMiron: You'll be in Montreal/Laval on Tuesday?
Pamela: so you'll have to leave the highway for potty breaks and coffee
BobS: OUCH
Pamela: ya, that's what I said
rich-c: yes, bring a plastic bottle and hold off on teh diruetics till you arrive
Daniel B: ... cold... almost everyone here has a cold... well, mine is tolerable... I was thinking first it was a flu, but no.
Pamela: my sister-in-law was down that way a couple of weeks ago and warned me
LucMiron: @Daniel: Well, better have a cold now than 10 days from now. :)
rich-c: we cannot figure out what idiocy in our government let that slip through
Meeka: better now than next week daniel
BobS: just have to find a Tim Hortons along the way !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Judy: why close them all?
rich-c: yes, Luc, we hope to be in the hotel early Tuesday afternoon
Meeka: several of them lol
LucMiron: So guys and gals, I have a few ADAMCon-related questions here...
Meeka: shoot
LucMiron: POW!
Chief Blackhawk: End of second period. 3-2 Hawks
Meeka: hahhhha
Daniel B: I'm hit
LucMiron: It's a magic bullet... :P
BobS: I am DEAD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
rich-c: it's teh end of teh third that counts - everything crossed, kiddiees!
LucMiron: Anyhow, first question...
Judy: we will try to answer
BobS: ok, enough fun...shoot
LucMiron: It's question for rich, mostly...
Daniel B: be right back
rich-c: just dont spoil the fun too much, Luc - there will be an Adam trivia quiz with a nice prize at teh 'con
LucMiron: Can you contact everyone who registered for the convention and ask them if they could possibly be interested in purchasing an ADAM computer from me?
LucMiron: I figure it would be good to avoid shipping issues. They could just take it with them, in their car, after the convention.
rich-c: an announcement could be put on the Adam mailing list, but it isn't limited to onvention members
LucMiron: That would be alright, I guess.
rich-c: anyway, pretty well all Adamcon folks have all the Adams they need
LucMiron: That's what I was thinking...
rich-c: my surplus Adams are being offered on eBay
LucMiron: It doesn't make much sense to bring the ADAM to the 'con if I won't be able to sell it.
rich-c: unless you want to have it in hand while we discuss it
LucMiron: I'll be bringing a ColecoVision and a TV set, with my USB cart.
BobS: except that you are fairly close anyway
LucMiron: @Bob: Yeah, but I don't have a car, and I'll need to take a taxi to bring it.
rich-c: don't know if Yann, Stephane and all will be in the market
rich-c: Daniel, who is teh third one in that group?
LucMiron: Well, I just need a single buyer, really. I won't even asking much for it.
LucMiron: even be asking
rich-c: if they're at the 'con they can likely go to your place to pick it up anyway
LucMiron: That's true. One thing I can do is bring it up during my presentation.
LucMiron: That leads me to my second question...
rich-c: you can always ask Bob or Dave Hill for advice, both sell Adams quite regularly
Chief Blackhawk: Ok Back.
LucMiron: When will I know the date and time at which I will be called upon to do my presentation?
rich-c: Daniel has to answer that one, just remember our times are sort of soft
LucMiron: Yeah, but I also know that there are several presentations, and a banquet on Sunday evening too...
rich-c: by the way, Daniel, when can we have our Mighty Mitchell Prize tribvia contest?
LucMiron: Mighty Mitchell?
rich-c: named for Ron Mitchell - previous year's winner has to do the following year's
LucMiron: Ah.
LucMiron: Anyhow, my next questions are for Daniel and Dale. I hope Dale will drop by tonight...
rich-c: so we figure there will be at least seven people trying desperately NOT to win ; - )
Pamela: the full name being (I believe) the Much Maligned but Highly Coveted Mighty Mitchell Award
Daniel B: I'm back
Meeka: wb
BobS: DALE IS <AKING THE SCHEDULE
BobS: MAKING
BobS: so.............only he knows for sure
rich-c: you're shouting
BobS: I know
BobS: then luc won't miss it
BobS: HA
Daniel B: Dale is in charge of the scheduling, all I know is that I'm starting.
Meeka: dale tends to be rather last minute
rich-c: OK, I'll speak to him then
LucMiron: So Daniel, do you have a list of all the people who purchased Jeepers Creepers carts from you?
Daniel B: Checking if he's online somewhere
rich-c: yes, Luc will find out he's next about two minutes before he's on
Daniel B: Dale is not online at the moment.
LucMiron: If Dale does the told-at-the-last-minute prank on me, he's going to get it...
rich-c: likely putting Jeffy to bed
Daniel B: List of Jeepers Creepers carts owners?
rich-c: after you've known Dale for a while, you get hardened to it
LucMiron: Yep, because I will have about 55 JC boxes to dsitribute.
Daniel B: err... I guess I can find back some messages, but I don't have a list
LucMiron: Well, do you know some in Quebec, aside from you and me? From memory, I mean.
LucMiron: I'm sure there are several that frequent the AtariAge forums, so I can reach them from there.
rich-c: Daniel, how are you coming down to Montreal?
Meeka: ya, i we were thinking so too
Daniel B: Well, I've find a way to be at the hotel in time for the checkin thuesday night.... but can't be there early.
rich-c: well you can't check in before 3 p.m. anyway - so how are you coming?
Daniel B: I can't find messages regarding those who did bought JC in Quebec, because I did probably sell them during a CCJVQ meeting... so it's more anonymously
LucMiron: In any case, I'll have a few JC boxes glued up in time for my visit at ADAMcon. I assume you have at least one copy of the cart, Daniel, so you'll be getting one.
Daniel B: I did sell my cartridge... someone wanted the game and AtariAge still didn't prepare any so I had to make a choice between getting some money or not.
LucMiron: Oops... :)
LucMiron: Well, I could give you a box anyway.
BobS: tha is what I was thinking.......hotel pics show no refrig in room.........so anything would need ice or just drink it
Daniel B: reminds me, I didn't send you yet a list of games.
rich-c: I will be bringing a powered cooler and Pamela was out shipping for one today
Pamela: correction, bought one today
LucMiron: @Daniel: Oh, that's right. With everything that's been happening lately, I kinda forgot about it.
rich-c: I am not sure if you can order a room frig or not as an extra
Pamela: I didn't see that as an option
Daniel B: Well, I've found one email here... not someone from Quebec... it's a cartoonist-scripter. Rob Schrab, maybe you.ve heard this name before.
BobS: I thought that it was listed beforre
rich-c: you did buy it, then - OK - won't have to share my beer space ; - )
LucMiron: I came very close to getting a boxed Game Pack #1 on eBay a few weeks ago, but I got outbid... :(
Pamela: nope : )
BobS: drink warm beer???????????????????/I think NOT
LucMiron: Rob Scrab... Doesn't ring a bell...
LucMiron: It was Nathan Koslowski's copy (ColecoNation)
rich-c: good beer actually tastes better warm - but Americans never discover that
Daniel B: well, if you type his name on Google, you'll find a lot about him
Judy: Meeka do you have one of those coolers?
BobS: RICAHRD....shame
Meeka: which coolers mom
Judy: the plug in ones
rich-c: sorry, Bob, I keep forgetting you have boutique producers turning out the real stuff now - good ones, too
Meeka: we have a very small one that runs on electric and holds like 6 cans
Judy: that is what we need to take along
Daniel B: I've found another name here... someone did asked me for a Jeepers Creepers by email... I don't have much information except his name and his email.
Daniel B: I can't remember if he did get a cartridge or not
LucMiron: Okay...
Pamela: I suspect we'll get a lot more use out of it than just long trips
Daniel B: www.robschrab.com
Daniel B: Rob Schrab web site
Daniel B: he got a Jeepers Creeprs cartridge
Daniel B: directly from me
rich-c: well, we have only used ours for travel so far, but I won't be surprised if that changes
Pamela: I must say I found it useful on that trip to Windsor last year Dad
Daniel B: I know for sure that Steve Begin doesn't have a Jeepers Creepers. I did offer him one but he returned it to me.
Pamela: or whenever that was
rich-c: right - btw do nudge Grame's elbow on Behemoth when you chat, perhaps?
LucMiron: Alright. I suppose Steve won't be at AdamCon. Pitty...
Pamela: I have a couple of times Dad but if I talk to him soon I'll pester him
LucMiron: What about Mathieu Proulx?
rich-c: good, your mother is being impatitent
Daniel B: he's not interrest into Coleco, he just wanted to make a game with my help.
LucMiron: Really? So Maze Maniac was a one-time thing?
Daniel B: Maze Maniac was made by Mathieu Boyer.
LucMiron: Oh, I got'em mixed up. Mathieu Proulx helped you with Bejeweled, right?
Daniel B: Yes, he insisted so hard to do a game project with me, so I decided to let him continue the project Bejeweled that I've started earlier.
Daniel B: he did a great job actually
LucMiron: You know, if I had the time, I would encode and prepare the source code for that Jewel Panic title screen I created for you...
moved to room Meeting Place
LucMiron: Then you'd only need to fix those controller issues...
changed username to Coastal Ron
Chief Blackhawk: HI Ron
Coastal Ron: hey all
rich-c: hi Ron, how's the wet coast?
Judy: hi, Ron
BobS: The WET coasters are here?????????????????????????
Coastal Ron: showers sun showers
Daniel B: well, with todays devkit, I'll need more than just fixing an issue. I need to rewrite parts of teh code to fit SDCC instead of hi-tech c compiler systax and libraries.
Pamela: Hi Ron
Coastal Ron: mailed the stuff express post today Bob
Coastal Ron: hi Pam
LucMiron: Yeah, that sounds like more work indeed. Unless you just used Hi-Tech one last time...
Judy: we have been having the same kind of weather
BobS: OK Ronald !!!!!
Coastal Ron: supposed to take 4-6 days
rich-c: surely Expresspost isn't THAT long?
Coastal Ron: the Mighty Mitch prize can be something of your choice
Daniel B: Last time I've used hitech-c, it was to make the final version of Jeepers Creepers.
Coastal Ron: well Rich, they said it might possible arrive sooner
rich-c: heck, we got our renewed passports bhack in under a week, and they came Expresspost
LucMiron: I still have Hi-Tech installed here, some place on my hard disk. I could still use it.
rich-c: well, I have found a verry appropriate prize for the Mighty Mitchell Award
Daniel B: dosbox works with 22nice and the compiler, but that means I can't run it fast and I can't use the interface program called CCI to help me.
Coastal Ron: Daniel - in addition to mailing my DVD presentations to Rich and Bob, I was talking to Dr. D this afternoon and he suggested uploading the whole thing to his site. Doing that now
rich-c: well, as long as teh one for me gets here by Monday, everything's fine
Coastal Ron: as we speak
LucMiron: I can still use CCI on my end. In fact, I used it while programming my Sudoku game.
Coastal Ron: so one way or another you should have it available
Daniel B: Running XP I guess
LucMiron: Yep, I have XP.
Daniel B: it's the last version my CCI and hi-tech compiler than works with
Pamela: be right back folks, gotta run down to the garage
Daniel B: *the last verison of windows... that can works with
Daniel B: anyway, mistyping is fun
rich-c: oh I know, I do it all the time!
Daniel B: yes, Kuc and Kich
Judy: it is a way to type, mistakes are a must
Chief Blackhawk: Less than 5 minutes. Blackhawks still lead
rich-c: well last week I had help - my 6 key wouldn't work
Coastal Ron: teh = the
rich-c: time for them to get another before all the fans have heart attacks, Guy
Coastal Ron: first time since what, 1961???
Daniel B: Yahoo! Mail refuses to work properly tonight
Chief Blackhawk: By the way. I've now lost 18 pounds, hoping to loose 2 more before the con
Daniel B: I can't check or serach emails
Judy: good for you, Guy
rich-c: sounds good, Guy - I'mj down about twn of late without even trying
Meeka: good fopr you guy
Daniel B: My presentation kis ready, btw
Judy: how come, Daniel?
Chief Blackhawk: Annie's been a big help
Daniel B: again... another K
Coastal Ron: Daniel, there was one to the ADAM mail list this afternoon from Dr. D. wondering if you wanted him to do a presentation and if so, on what subject
LucMiron: Dr D. = Dale Wick?
rich-c: seems Dale is handling the scheduling, Ron
Coastal Ron: no Rich Drushel
Daniel B: Well, I've tried to reply to him directly, but I've got an error message, so I've no idea if he got my message. but in it, I didn't suggested any subject.
Meeka: no, dr. d is rich drushell
LucMiron: Ah, ok.
Chief Blackhawk: Flyers tied it up 3-3
Coastal Ron: awww
Daniel B: try typing drushell and coleco as keywords in google
rich-c: also Prof. D. if you want to be formal, but mostly "hey rich"
rich-c: time for teh Hawks to get it back NOW - we do NOT need o/t
Chief Blackhawk: I know. About three minutes remaining
Daniel B: well, maybe try another keyword then
rich-c: climb through teh TV screen and tell them to go for it!
Daniel B: My presentation may be about 1 hoyur instead of 45 minutes.
LucMiron: It's a shame Dale is not here tonight. I wanted to ask him if he could install OpenOffice 3.2 on the laptop he plans to use with his projector.
rich-c: doesn't matter, Daniel, at an Adamcon we always end up taking whatever we need, anyway
Coastal Ron: Is there going to be internet at the 'con?
Daniel B: I can ask Dale to install OpenOffice on his laptop, or you can use my laptop if you want
BobS: yes sir
rich-c: yes, the whole hotel has wireless, Ron
LucMiron: Whatever PC is used, I would only need OpenOffice Impress to be installed.
rich-c: don't know if it's secure or not, but suspect no
Coastal Ron: good. Shall be with you in spirit
BobS: I have Open Office 2.1 Luc
Judy: that is the next best then, Ron
Chief Blackhawk: I have OpenOffice 3.2
Daniel B: Well, I'm using OpenOffice Impress for my presentation.... not the best actually to add multimedia in the slides but it works.
LucMiron: BobS: I wouldn't chance it. I'd prefer to have 3.2 because that's what I'm using to prepare the presentation slides.\
BobS: ANd the annual ADAM chat will be Saturday evening i assuem......................DANIEL??????
BobS: can alwasy BE isntalled Luc
rich-c: ye4s, can anyone bring the CD?
Coastal Ron: hope so
Daniel B: the problem I did find with openoffice files is still using file references instead of adding files in the presentation. In other words, if I change my presentation from one folder to another, the slides lose their images and sounds.
LucMiron: Yeah, with wireless at the hotel, I supposed installing OpenOffice 3.2 on any laptop is no big deal. It's just a matter of having enough free disk space.
rich-c: I have a copy somewhere, I think, but no idea if it is 3.2
Daniel B: I need ot move the presentation file and the associated files in the same folder, all the time
Coastal Ron: Expect you guys might have problems with my DVD. It'll probably play the slides ok, but some of the sound files might not be properly linked
Coastal Ron: same problem Daniel
Daniel B: when I did the nice presentation about minigames 2 or 3 years ago, by trying to copy the presentatin file to Dale, we did notice that the presentation didn't bring the images with it.
Coastal Ron: if my upload to Dr. D is ok, h
Coastal Ron: he
Coastal Ron: 'he's going to see if he can put the thing back together on his Mac
Daniel B: Well, for my presentation I'll simply use my file where it is, and if someone want a copy, I'll try to convert it into a portable slideshow.
