||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for May 08, 2003 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 8:23 PM, dragging Mudhead by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
||||||||| Catherwood enters with ah,clem close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:23 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Mudhead: Welcome
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Merlyn disembarks at 8:24 PM.

Mudhead: I'll just sit here...
Mudhead: and wait for my cues...
ah,clem: me too, at least untill Deputy Dan gets here...
Mudhead: He's got no friends
Mudhead: Is that why we chat on Thursday?
ah,clem: that is true, and I am sure there is a reason for that.
ah,clem: because Friday would be too late.
ah,clem: so how was your week Mudhead?
Mudhead: I got my meds straitened out, I'm startin to feel better
Mudhead: Reminds me I gotta take some more, brb
ah,clem: ok
Mudhead: I like the p[owdered sugar at the bottom of the box myself
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, May 08, 2003 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
ah,clem: yes, don't horn th ones with the cherries in te middle, you'll suffocate.

Mudhead: He needs to come in from the shadows

ah,clem: the vegitables are green...
Mudhead: and you can pee in a stream
ah,clem: and that's important
ah,clem: :)
ah,clem: from the shadows again
Mudhead: Were we discussing hamberger last week?
ah,clem: Merlin, why does this chat client truncate lines?
ah,clem: yes, all over the highway, in Mystic Conn.
Mudhead: Yes, someone had a thought of an accident?
ah,clem: was on the news
Merlyn: what got truncated, clem?
Mudhead: It wasn't a highway death play on words
||||||||| Catherwood leads Bambi inside, makes a note of the time (9:11 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
ah,clem: before your Hour of the Wolf movie.
Bambi: hello
Mudhead: There actually was a spill os 200 lbs of hamburger
Merlyn: if you put stuff in < > brackets, it vanishes because it looks like HTML
Mudhead: Hi Bambi
Bambi: hi Mudhead
ah,clem: a play on the word mystic I think, Bambi should remember
Bambi: hi ah,clem
Bambi: hi Merlyn
Bambi: looks like you are back now Merlyn ... cool
Merlyn: hello bambi
Bambi: can you restate that as a question, please :)
Mudhead: all these people always askin questions!
ah,clem: last week they were talking about the hamburger on the highway,
Bambi: hehehe
Bambi: yes? and?
Merlyn: hey clem, what truncation were you referring to?
ah,clem: Mudhead wantedto talk about that.
Bambi: ah, ok
ah,clem: beginning of line right before refresh
Bambi: in Mystic, Connecticut ... yes
ah,clem: only happens sometimes
Bambi: if refresh is within the first word or two, it may truncate the beginning of the line
ah,clem: rght, was asking Merlin why that is.
Bambi: with a refresh rate of 2, I am not seeing it tonight ... last week with refresh rate of 5 I had to be careful
Bambi: to stop typing if refresh came at that time
Bambi: I hope I explained that correctly
Merlyn: hmm, it might depend on your browser; if it refreshes the bottom frame with the text entry box, I bet it gets cleared. Doesn't happen to me, though
ah,clem: ok
Bambi: I am using IE 6.x ... ah,clem is in Linux
Merlyn: or maybe refresh selects all the text, so if you keep typing, the next character removes all the selected text
ah,clem mozilla here
Bambi: that's a distinct possibility Merlin
Bambi: at refresh rate of 2, it happens so fast you don't really see it
ah,clem: BRB
Merlyn: OK, the auto-refresh doesn't do anything, but if I do a manual refresh of everything, my cursor moves to the front
||||||||| ah,clem runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's ah,clem?! It's 9:20 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Merlyn: but it's probably browser/OS dependent
||||||||| Catherwood trudges in at 9:21 PM, dragging ah,clem by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
Bambi: what OS/Browser are you using?
Bambi: I am in Win98se/IE 6.x ... ah,clem is in RedHat Linux/Mozilla
ah,clem: ok, now trying a faster refresh rate.
Mudhead: Dear Friends, say a prayer for Oklahoma, the twisters are knockin em around.
Merlyn: I'm using IE 5 under mac OS 9.2.2
Bambi: good ... now it will happen much faster so you won't notice it too much at all :)
ah,clem: working better now
Merlyn: clem, you can change it without exiting if you select "configure"
Bambi: Ah that would explain it
Bambi: hmmmm, let me check the dropdown
ah,clem: leave it to a wizzard buy a MAC. :)
Bambi: cool, hadn't seen that before...configure is pretty cool
||||||||| Catherwood leads Ken inside, makes a note of the time (9:26 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bambi: hi Ken
Ken: hello, dear friends :)
ah,clem: hello
Ken: i'm ken, and i use windows........
Bambi: lots of fun last friday ... so glad you could come over to the IRC for www.Skybirdradio.org
Ken: help me in my 12 step program, please
Ken: bambi, i enjoyed myself, will plan on making it a semi-regular on my schedule (yeah, like i have a life and something to do on friday nights!)
Bambi: ok, 1. Start 2. Restart in MSDOS Mode 3. format c: .... hehehehe :)
Bambi: oh, wow...I solved your problem in 3 easy lessons :)
Ken: i have a friend who says he's sending me a couple of bootable cd's with linux flavors on them. might end up trying and liking
Bambi: you probably will .... is he sending you knoppix ?
Ken: all my friends are either geeks, nerds, or weirdos. why the hell do you think i hang out here? :)
Ken: only one i remember without checking into old emails is susie
Bambi: you don't have to do anything to your current configuration to try Linux with Knoppix
Bambi: cool :)
||||||||| Outside, the 9:29 PM downtown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Elayne coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Elayne: Evenin' all!
Ken: i have enough free disk space that i could devote a couple of gigs to it
Bambi: so we will forget all about OSes entirely for tonight :)
Ken: hey e
Bambi: hi elayne
Ken: alas, no smoking material here except the normal tobacco, so i won't be passing any around tonight
ah,clem: I have used mandrake and redhat, don't know much aboute susie
Mudhead: Hi Elayne
Merlyn: hey E
ah,clem: hi Elayne
Ken: jimmy: from where i sit, they are all about alike at this moment. it's like trying to decide whether to learn russian or polish. they're both so foreign to me it doesn't really matter
ah,clem: go with redhat, then I can help more.
Mudhead: Ken you can rum Knoppix from a CD, try it
Ken: mud: i can rum from a bottle, dear friend ;)
Mudhead: wr run
Elayne: I'm almost all out of my smokables, alas. But the money's started to come in again, so I'm up for a refill...
Ken: that name does ring a bell, i think it's susie and knoppix. dire straits/knopfler was stuck in my head so i think that's it
Mudhead: I'm packin
Ken: packin' a gun?
Mudhead: Suse
Mudhead: Refills
Ken: hell, i'd give you all my money, you don't need a gun, but you'd laugh at me when you got it
Mudhead: I'll light one and pass it around
Elayne: Appreciate it, Mudhead!
Ken: you're a good man, mudhead, and so good with the servants (wait, that's georgie, isn't it?)
Mudhead: Where are the servants anyway?
Ken: catherwood is probably clock watching......
Ken: don't pass that joint to him, you know how he is......
ah,clem: porgie was good with the servants.
Mudhead: He's confused enough
Bambi: yes, young George, fondly known as Porgie was so good with the servants, Porcelin in particular ... apparently according to his mother was helping her make the bed
Ken: if i could afford servants, i'd be good with them too
Mudhead: with a little applesauce porgies good with anything
Ken: "coming, mother"
ah,clem: LOL
Bambi: ah, yep ... that would be the scene :)
Ken: act II, scene 3, take 45
ah,clem: I'd like to take one two
Bambi: ah,clem ... are you missing a screwdriver downstairs? I have one up here that looks an awful lot like yours ...
ah,clem: yes
Ken: vodka and orange juice or phillips?
Bambi: ok, found it on the floor by my computers
||||||||| C. Simril sneaks in around 9:39 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
ah,clem: phillips
Bambi: ok, found it on the floor by my computers
C. Simril: hi chatters
Ken: hi cat

C. Simril: i'm glad doc got around to that
C. Simril: i heard from michael packer about him getting his copy. good to see someone is
Elayne: Oops, hi Cat! Multi-tasking again, sorry.
Ken: elayne: isn't it nice to be able to f**k up 6 things at once with windows instead of just one with dos?
||||||||| Osama Bip Yamamoto enters at 9:43 PM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and runs off to the Haberdashery Barn.
Ken: yo, yammie
Elayne: Heh, I remember DOS, Ken... dang, I was alive before PCs ever existed, how strange.

Ken: i had a ham radio teletype machine once that used paper tape
Merlyn: here's something funny; the guardian crossword from a few days ago contained several naughty hidden words in the answers: http://www.guardian.co.uk/crossword/java/complete/0,7090,-5848,00.html

C. Simril: speaking of library paste, anyone here ever been in the SF public library?
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I used to hang around the mimeo in school and get tore up on the fumes
Ken: never even been in s.f.
Merlyn: hard-on, semen, arse, wee, bra (maybe), and "election" can be solved as "erection" because the clue is ambiguous

Osama Bip Yamamoto: I'm building the next one

Osama Bip Yamamoto: Desktop
Ken: www.bbc.co.uk
Ken: klok listens to bbc4, not the same as world service
Osama Bip Yamamoto: We ought to do in cold HTML as a radio show
C. Simril: looks like i could just type in radio plays and hit search
C. Simril: good idea, osama
C. Simril: tiny was really into it
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I used to listen to BBC 3
Bambi: is the internet the only way to get the 'real' bbc in the US?
Osama Bip Yamamoto: He was
Osama Bip Yamamoto: and the first one was rather a magic bit
Ken: my npr station puts bbc w.s. on after midnight until 6am. i have it on my clock radio, listen as i go to sleep
C. Simril: i watched bbc whenever the hotels had it in europe. i missed the us sports scores, but it was much saner than cnn
Ken: bambi: unless you have a good shortwave receiver and antenna
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I get the BeeB on the 'net
Dexter Fong: Bam: YOu might try a fully hand-crafted Hallicrafter...you can get Tierra del Fuego on it
Mudhead: I can pick it up shortwave on East Coast
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Or Schortwave
Bambi: darn...lack of that license comes back to haunt me again
Ken: dex: but you can wipe it right off with a wet cloth
Ken: bambi: no license needed to listen
Ken: only to transmit, and you don't even have to learn code now
Bambi: ah, only to transmit
Osama Bip Yamamoto: or a moist towelette
ah,clem: used to be on cband as subcarrier, but gone now. Probably digital.
Osama Bip Yamamoto: It's easy to catch that code, tho
ah,clem: simple head code
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Does anyone use CB's?
Ken: morse at 5 words/minute isn't hard to learn. i had my problem trying to get 20, back when you needed that for extra class
Bambi: probably ... and of course, cable, dishnetwork and directv have the 'proper' bbc if at all
C. Simril: any school boy could catch it
Dexter Fong: Any English schoolboy can transmit it
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'Dave', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:00 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Ken: yam: all the truckers do
Ken: hey dave
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Elayne: Hi Dave!
C. Simril: hi dave
Dexter Fong: Ken: YOu've always had extra class =)
Bambi: I used to use CB ... Bambi was my handle .. then the linears and echo boxes and uncouth folks started taking over ... gave it up.
Dave: "good day dear friends it's so beautiful up here"
Ken: catherwood now 21 minutes fast
ah,clem: hi dave
Dexter Fong: Hi Dave
Bambi: hi dave
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I haven't bothered to see if I could get the CB on my old AM reciever

Elayne: We get the Beeb's World News broadcast on what they used to call UHF, but our system doesn't carry BBC America. :(
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Dave
Ken: dex: i failed the code 3 times at 20 wpm, but aced the written every time. now they've lowered it to 5 wpm for everyone and i haven't taken the test again. i'm a lowly advanced class :(
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I don't believe in Flying Saucers

Bambi: how are you pastor dave :)
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I could do code-only one finger required-like my typing

Dave: ah, the CB, I should buy one just for the helluvit
Ken: watch me pull a rabbi out of my hat
Elayne: Well, I'd best go do my e-mail, see y'all next week.
||||||||| Around 10:03 PM, Elayne walks off into the sunset...
Ken: later, e
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Ken: sure he can
Bambi: yes, it is a real eye opener just to listen Dave
C. Simril: by el
Bambi: silly rabbi kicks are for trids
Dexter Fong: See yah E:
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Gotta watch those Rabbis, they multiply exponentially
Dave: I'm not going in to detail but let's just say I'm supposed to be Jewish
Ken: not as bad as mormons though
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Okay
Osama Bip Yamamoto: That's me, I'm the worst
Ken: of course, with 15 wives, you can have a hundred or more kids easily
C. Simril: so was jesus. it didnt do him any good
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and klokwkdog disembarks at 10:05 PM.

klokwkdog: heap big musical!
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Cat are there two of you?

Osama Bip Yamamoto: Live it or live w/it
ah,clem: don;t forget to inflate shoes before crossing the water.
Ken: dave: you're right there. i listen almost every day.
klokwkdog: my impression from the Radio 3 stuff is that you need to put a heavy dose of left-wing politics in it - lots of working-class angst
Bambi: glad to be here in the future fair
Rotonoto: me too, they have a cool background music too :o)
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I don't wear them anymore
klokwkdog: you can't compare them, Dave: ours isn't really news...

klokwkdog: ...I still watch them 'cause they are interrupted by presentations of drugs I may have to use someday
Rotonoto: sysstat uptime ni-yun oh fi-yiv...
Bambi: I don't watch the news...to depressing ... any news I get is international on the web
C. Simril: even the west wing seems a lot more right wing than it used to be
Ken: yam: try opening up the f-stop and using longer shutter speed
Bambi: at least there you find out in a couple days if it is bunk
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I get my drugs from the E-Mail spammers
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Dunno what they do, but they look good
Dave: I'm just tired of all this fucking depressing news, so I don't watch, it's like, the more depressing, the more we hear about it
C. Simril: ah, f. stops. shutter speeds!
Ken: yam: herbal stuff, huh? placebo effect
Bambi: yeah, we don't need no stinking news :)
Bambi: life is too much fun for all that :)
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Dave: we need to kill all the ppl making the depressing news
Dexter Fong: Listen to the news...get depressed...buy the product....you don't care anymore
Ken: dave: we're bringing the boys back home!
Rotonoto: ah, but one acclimates readily to chronic, sub-clinical depression...
Dave: STUUUUUUPIIIIIIIIIIIID, SO STUPIIIIIIID!
klokwkdog: the big ROFL hoot for me today was the comments of the "little guy" Republicans who sensed they'd win about the tax reform bill
C. Simril: harry shearer should be required listening
Osama Bip Yamamoto: If it's herbs you want go out in the yard
Ken: btw, merl, thanks for that "man cuts off own head in meat saw" story on the news group. i loved it
Rotonoto: and they will subscribe wonderful pharmaceuticals to alleviate your anxiety when the ads aren't running...
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Harry Sheare should be president
Merlyn: sure ken, so did the python group, since he was a "gumbi"
Osama Bip Yamamoto: George Carlin
klokwkdog: ...they were dancing because they "knew" that a Capital Gains tax decrease would be "much" easier to present to the American people than a divident tax removal
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Could you imagine a Carlin State of the Union Speech?
Ken: yam: he can't, he's always apologizing for something. presidents have to be STRONG
Bambi: oh, you mean all those spam ads that I have blocked on my email? hehehe
Rotonoto: is mr. ah-clem any relation to mr. uh-clem? (and what about Bambi?!)
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Bush is STRONG?
klokwkdog: and I'm thinking, "These are people? Or aliens arrived from Planet Moneybags?"
Ken: yam: he has strong men behind him holding him up. same thing
Osama Bip Yamamoto: ok
Dexter Fong: Bush is a good strong, healthy, good strong, hardworking good strong American
Ken: klok: yeah, it would be a hoot about the tax relief if i wasn't so damned broke
Bambi: duck and cover
Ken: goose and uncover
klokwkdog: darn right he's strong, Yam. Most of us have been noticing the stink for years...
ah,clem: uh,clem is a clone, a clem clone
Osama Bip Yamamoto: what's left of his brain rotting
Rotonoto: my duck can't duck- i've got it covered with duct tape
Dexter Fong: Anyone see Lettermans top ten GB excuses for not finding those WMDs last night?
ah,clem: I am me, that's just a hologram.
C. Simril: nope
Ken: clem: as long as you're not obscene and fall, then you'd be an obscene clone fall
Bambi: and wrapped in plastic sheets too?
Rotonoto: (and Kend has the photographic evidence to back me up)
C. Simril: which was originally called Duck tape, as i recall
klokwkdog: haven't they found those WMDs yet, those hundreds of thousands of gallons of anthrax?
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I'm surprised they just don't make something up
Dexter Fong: Reason 2: hELL, WE CAN'T EVEN FIND cHENEY
Dexter Fong: oops
Osama Bip Yamamoto: who would know?
Rotonoto: wrapping costs extra around these here parts
Dexter Fong: Reason 1: Geraldo took them
Rotonoto: ..
Dave: brb for a bit
Rotonoto: ..
klokwkdog: he's in an undisclosed coronary care ICU, Dex
Bambi: they won't find any WMD ... they're all in syria or lebanon by now
Ken: whereas rapping is everywhere (and still sucks)
Osama Bip Yamamoto: NPR news presenter rilly screwed up just now
||||||||| Catherwood ushers otonotoR into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 10:23 PM, then departs.
klokwkdog: did you see that Cheney's going to run for VP again? and he has a 24/7 doctor next to him, everywhere?
Dexter Fong goes afk in search of alcoholic drink
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Bambi: Wouldn't somebody notice them moving? A biolab is a lot bigger than say a meth lab
Ken: klok: heard that tonight. sure glad of that
otonotoR: hey, what happened to my
klokwkdog: we have no idea
Rotonoto: ...
Merlyn: what's up, roto?
ah,clem: close b close mode
Bambi: they wouldn't have to move the labs, just the WMD
Osama Bip Yamamoto: You can't bung together a n00k in the boot of a car...
C. Simril: that's weirder than my repeated lines
Rotonoto: sometimes my browser stops refreshing, goes stale, sorta like flat champagne
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Bambi: Stuff STILL takes up space
Bambi: and they had plenty of time to do that between the inspectors and the beginning of the war
klokwkdog: you have to shake it now and then as you get closer to the bottom, Roto
Merlyn: try manually refreshing the page, see if that helps
otonotoR: get your hands off me, i'm a newsman, i gotta find out- Reeeebusssss...
||||||||| otonotoR departs at 10:25 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
klokwkdog: they swore on a stack of bibles that there was so much WMD stuff they'd trip over it every 5 minutes
Rotonoto: who was that masked bozo?
C. Simril: a firealarm is ringing outside somewhere and the game just started!
Ken: klok: they converted it to civilian use.
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Someone w/a satellite would notice a few extra viehicles moving along the western motorway, anyway
Bambi: who knows really anyway :)
klokwkdog: I love it when the Russians say, "Well, if you haven't found the WMD yet, we shouldn't lift the sanctions!"
Ken: take a left at mosul, put the pedal to the metal
C. Simril: what is reality?
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I think it's fiction
Rotonoto: Product may have settled during shipping, close cover before striking
Dexter Fong returns with B&B
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Klok: I hope the rooskies hold out as long as possible
Ken: b&b: a delightful drink usually post-prandial
Bambi: berry berry b&b?
ah,clem: eat it
C. Simril: products go on strike? i didnt know they were unionized
Ken: eat it raw
Bambi: eat it raw
Dexter Fong: Ken: B&B= Booze and Boo
Rotonoto: the russians lost 6 billion, the french 60 billion, why you t'ink they give us such a hard time? :o)
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Look for the Union Lable
ah,clem: raw raw raw
Bambi: that's the spirits we have around here
Dexter Fong: war war war
Ken: do not remove label under penalty of law
C. Simril: speaking of russians, saw excellent flick last week called Russian Ark, set in the Hermitage in St. Petersburg
Mudhead: those aren't the only spirits hear
Osama Bip Yamamoto: No thank you, had one
Rotonoto: Mudhead-look- Morse Media has vanished!
C. Simril: kind of like my plays, lots of time travel
Bambi: oh, now ... the mattress police are gonna come and get'cha
Ken: cat: hermitage has lovely cyber-tour on line. can't tell you the url, lost it in crash of laptop several years ago
klokwkdog: oh yeah, and now we plan to give Iraq "democracy", but only if they vote the way we want...
Osama Bip Yamamoto: God I miss Nixon
Rotonoto: fire futon torpedoes!
Ken: bambi: you a national lampoon radio hour person too? i remember that bit!
klokwkdog: LOL
C. Simril: phil and melinda have acted out the death of the czar in the russian revolution twice, once in Neal Amid and the latest in Red Shift
Dexter Fong: Bambi: Urban myth: matress owner can remove label, but not seller of matresses
C. Simril: it was a trip to see this same scene in a flick
C. Simril: it was a trip to see this same scene in a flick
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Natlamp Radio Hour
Rotonoto: there's money in that mattress
Bambi )
Osama Bip Yamamoto: God I loved that
Dexter Fong: Cat: You got the stutters?
||||||||| It's 10:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dave - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
C. Simril: now i'm repeating again
Bambi: oh, yeah ... ah,clem has schooled me well ;)
Rotonoto: there's an echo in here...
Mudhead: There's soft money in that mattress
klokwkdog: You know it's getting bad when you turn on McLaughlin Group and even he is worried about this administration...
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Weird
C. Simril: by dave
Ken: damn, dave died of peemonion
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I just got a screen fulla warnings
Rotonoto: it's always pneumonia, never the plague
C. Simril: john mclauglin, the great guitarist?
Ken: those buboes are killers
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "10:31 PM and late as usual, it's doctec, just back from Billville."
C. Simril: i thought he was at peace
ah,clem: just follow the rubber line to your seat.
Ken: hi, tom
Bambi: it was the salmon moose
doctec: whew
Dexter Fong: MY: Warnings about what...Are we back at orange...or is it (gulp) red
Rotonoto: bye bye!!
C. Simril: hi doc
doctec: whew
Osama Bip Yamamoto: John's still alive aint he?
ah,clem: hi doc
doctec: hi gang - long day - i am exhausted
Osama Bip Yamamoto: oi doc
doctec: whew
Rotonoto: nice to see you operating...
Bambi: what?
klokwkdog: no, McLaughlin, the renegade priest and r/w talk-show entertainer
Mudhead: hi Doc whatt ya know
Dexter Fong: Hey Doc, got the CD yesterday...thanks you
C. Simril: i thought he was still under the spell of that guru. or maybe not
Osama Bip Yamamoto: OK
Bambi: hi doc
Ken: dex: substantial penalty for early withdrawal, you know
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Doc-Never got MY CD
Mudhead: are you aa practicing physician?
Bambi: you came in as we were having to leave last week ...
doctec: hey muddy - is mudhead r.a.?
Dexter Fong: Ken: Sorry have no idea where the reference point is =)))))
klokwkdog: heck, Y, I can't even figure out MY NETSCAPE...
Rotonoto: oh, a old trick puzzle- so happen we find out the answer next show!
C. Simril: when you stop practicing, there are a couple of slugs i need removed from my back garden
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'nurse judy', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 10:33 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Mudhead: Doc, sorry no
Ken: CD=certificate of deposit (not only compact disc)
doctec: (there was a chatter back in IRC daze who's initials were r.a.)
C. Simril: no, a different mudhead, doc
Dexter Fong: Doc: Mud is not RA
doctec: oh
C. Simril: hi nurse
Ken: hi judy
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I have Mozilla
doctec: well, it;'s nice to have another mudhead with us!
Dexter Fong: NJ!
Bambi: well, at least we don't have to use mozaic anymore to browse ... there would be no chat
klokwkdog: another tragic episode of overloading of operators, like "party line"
ah,clem: hi judy
doctec: 'lo n.j.
Ken: yeah! another mozilla fan!
nurse judy: Toads away! Hi boys!
Bambi: no java back in mozaic's day
doctec: cat: heard from p.s. today, he got the shipment of red shift cds
Bambi: hi judy
nurse judy: PA made his non appearance yet?
Rotonoto: speaking of Mozilla, Phoenix is awesome!
doctec: dex, did you get yours today?
Osama Bip Yamamoto: The only reason I liked netscrape was cos of composer which is now royally screwed up
Ken: java has been there for millions of years (well, maybe if you count continental drift, not "there")
nurse judy: Hello deer
Ken: roto: phoenix?
Bambi: yes, Phoenix is awesome and so lightweight
Dexter Fong: Doc: Got it yesterday..thank you
klokwkdog: in a sentence? "I was out in the yard trying to follow my party line above when one of the neighbors picked up."
doctec: roto: yeah i've heard good things about phoenix - haven't tried it yet though, i'm a fan of the opera browser
C. Simril: never been there, but i hear it's hot
Osama Bip Yamamoto: 100+ in the summer
Rotonoto: new engine in Mozilla camp and project called Phoenix gets (I think) renamed back to Mozilla- a major new direction for the Mozilla troops
doctec: good to hear dex, i hope you enjoy it
nurse judy: returned from the ashes
Dexter Fong: Only problem with Phoenix is every 100 years it goes up in flames....but it comes right back like new
Bambi: yeah, java has been but not in browsers back in mozaic's day ... the mozaic era was pre-netscapian ;)
Ken: i've got mozilla 1.4.0 (alpha). is that phoenix?
Rotonoto: try it doc, you will be pleasantly surprised- I have great hopes for it- just try stable version 0.5
Rotonoto: I think so, Ken, not sure
klokwkdog: Yeah, Roto, there was a big write-up on that in The Register. A major Open Source figure from Debian had to step in to mediate that name squabble
doctec: i'll make it a point to download/install
Mudhead: Where's Merlyn, and how does he make his voice do that?
nurse judy: mozillia is a paper gorilla
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I'll have to have a look @ that meself
doctec: do i recall that it is only a browser (no mail/news client)?
Ken: every couple weeks i check for new build, get it
doctec: do i recall that it is only a browser (no mail/news client)?
Dexter Fong: K: You must have a pretty good built by now
Bambi: yes, browser only at this point for phoenix
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Doc's got it!
Rotonoto: yes but they have some good engines for that stuff too, just won't be bundled- separate standalone utilities and pretty good too, I hear
Ken: i love the tabbed browsing, and this version can save not just one home page, but a bunch of home pages all at once, open them all when browser opens
Dexter Fong: Now Doc has the stutters
doctec: thx
nurse judy: and he can have it
Ken: doc: au contraire, great mail client in it
Bambi: tabbed browsing is fantastic
klokwkdog: kwd runs only Netscape in Windows, currently 7.01 and 7.02 (Mozilla is always about 1 revision ahead of Netscape, so is a better choice if not in need of integrated AIM, etc.)
doctec: yeah opera has tabbed browsing too - i love that feature
Osama Bip Yamamoto: My tabby browses in the rubbish bin
Rotonoto: the knock your socks app is a very small addon- right click on banner ad and banish it
Bambi: I don't open a bunch at one time from a single bookmark ... would choke the dialup connection :)
Ken: LOL, yam! i've got cats that try that too
nurse judy: he's got little squinty eyes now
doctec: roto: that's cool!
klokwkdog: are Opera's mouse "gestures" any good, DT?
nurse judy: cat chat
Rotonoto: little add is a separate download called Nuke- luvit luvit!
Dexter Fong: NJ: 'e's a 'eprecaun
doctec: klok: i don't use 'em, i have that disabled
doctec: call me a luddite...
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Bunnyboy into the room, accepts a grimy quarter as a gratuity, mumbles something about 10:39 PM, then departs.
Ken: roto: mine has built-in pop-up blocker
Bunnyboy: lo dere
doctec: hey bb
Rotonoto: Phoenix has mouse gestures package as separate tuny plugin download
Osama Bip Yamamoto: oi
Bambi: hi bunny
Ken: hey bun

Osama Bip Yamamoto: Silly rabbit
Rotonoto: yes, Phoenix does, and I think you may have some of Phoenix anyway
C. Simril: merl said he got it

Rotonoto: silly wabbit- kix are for trids
Dexter Fong: Ken ken...how er quaint?
Bunnyboy: What do you mutter when you don't have supplemental insurance?
||||||||| Catherwood enters with llanwydd close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 10:40 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Bunnyboy: "AWFUC!"
llanwydd: howdy
doctec: lili just called in from the kitchen to say she sends you all her love - she's preparing a late feast for the two of us
Ken: dex: wasn't sure of the : protocol, typed my name after it
Rotonoto: laugh runaway!
Ken: hey llan
Bambi: hi llanwydd
C. Simril: hey bunny, i'll be in seattle for an hour later this month
Dexter Fong: LL, Hi
Ken: hi lili
Osama Bip Yamamoto: oioi
klokwkdog: the best article in The Register this week deconstructed the British Rail web site and concluded that for schedule information, it was easier to get it via Germany's rail site's English version
nurse judy: hiho llanwydd, however that's pronounced
C. Simril: lili?
Osama Bip Yamamoto: HI LILI
Ken: klok: i almost roared reading that one, brilliant work
Osama Bip Yamamoto: had to shout she's in the kitchen and that
Bunnyboy: Hi Lili, Hi Lo
doctec: yeah thanx for that link klok
Bunnyboy: Doc: RED SHIFT arrived today. Yippee!
Rotonoto: type us the menu, lili- we can obtain vicarious sustenance
Dexter Fong: Lili: Are u Ilanwyd?
Bambi: what's on the menu doc?
klokwkdog: it started out pretty straight-ahead, Ken, but pretty soon I was banging the table with tears coming out of my eyes
doctec: oh joy, sounds like everyone got their mailings
Bunnyboy: Only one anomaly: Act 2 comes before Act 1.
Bambi: what roto said ;)
Ken: roto: vicarious? didn't know you were episcoplian
llanwydd: hiho! It's not pronounced. only typed.
Dexter Fong: CAT& BUN; Yeah I wondered about that too
Bunnyboy: *
doctec: salmon steaks w/mustard butter, brussel sprouts, roasted red potatoes
llanwydd: hard to do this with webtv
Osama Bip Yamamoto: That's okay
nurse judy: that's hard enough
Ken: you're not one of those welchmen, are you? spelling looks real suspicious....
Rotonoto: only on weekends but I make up for it all week
Bambi: yummmm
Bunnyboy: It's like an opinion.
C. Simril: sounds good
doctec: w/garlic & rosemary
klokwkdog: ah, here it is: http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/6/30564.html
Ken: ah, doc, i'd come over but i'm hours away
Bambi: that sounds great!
Osama Bip Yamamoto: He may turn ito a scotsman
doctec: i know, i'm such a lucky guy
Rotonoto: hmmm- white wine or red?
nurse judy: stop, you're making me hungry
Dexter Fong: Hi! My name is Doc and I'll be taking your oders tonight
Ken: i jsut had a pizza omelette a while ago. eggs, sausage, sauce, cheese. i also put sour cream on top
llanwydd: I'm american but of welsh distraction
Dexter Fong: orders?
Osama Bip Yamamoto: I had a bowl of ramen
doctec: actually roto, we're drinking vodka tonics
klokwkdog: can not make kwd hungry: it's a permanent state...
Rotonoto: eau de server farm '98
Bunnyboy: What is this, a grilling? What's at steak here? I'm bone tired. Just another rare meeting, Mister Acm...
Dexter Fong: K: Did you hold the anchovys?
Ken: how's the prince doing? (and why is he the prince of wales who later becomes king of england?)
Bambi: home done burgers w/sauteed onions on rolls here
C. Simril: i thought he changed his name
Bunnyboy: doc: Didja catch the Act flip-flop mention?
Ken: dex: didn't hold them at all. live without them most of the time
Rotonoto: all I have is this bag of shelled pecans and a few raisins
llanwydd: haven't seen the prince lately
Ken: you don't mix sausage with anchovies anyway
doctec: act flip flop mention?
doctec: no i didn't
klokwkdog: Dex: I think it's against the law in Michigan. Also (can you believe it?) donkeys.
nurse judy: sayteed shrimp with pea pods carrots onions and tai sauce
Ken: roto: you're the healthiest one of all then
Osama Bip Yamamoto: Ken: Yoou'll have an explosion
Dexter Fong: Ken: How you know what I mix?
Ken: like acid and base
doctec: ken: lili wants to know - did you have night train or ripple with that omelette? (i know, she can be very cruel at times)
Osama Bip Yamamoto: sausge+anchovies=WMD
Rotonoto: I luvs youse guise so much that I decided to forego an hour at the gym exorcising my fat, just to be with you :o)
llanwydd: I had an anchovy without the pizza
Bunnyboy: doc: Looks like Act 2 came before Act 1 on Dex and my discs. No other unplanned artifacts.
C. Simril: nice of you, roto
Ken: actually, folger's special roast, done with a drip machine ;)
nurse judy: what are you complaining about you had a whole bone and a whole egg shell
klokwkdog: use a D flop, doc, with an active-low RS. just put a berry on all the direct set stuff
Bambi: no little fishies!
C. Simril: you mean it was printed on the cover or actually recorded as act 2?
Dexter Fong: Bun: Thought maybe cat reordered the acts
Bunnyboy: Don't just eat the guts. Go for the eyes!
doctec: ken: lili says "it's not gonna help you clear your caroted arteries"
Ken: where's QC when you need them?
Dexter Fong: Klok: Spreak Engrisch
Bunnyboy: Queen Carl?
klokwkdog: ...better yet, just config up a macrocell and squeeze it in with all the other stuff - avoid discretes; they eat you alive
nurse judy: and they swam and they swam all over the dam
Rotonoto: besides, I'm hoping to scarf up a copy of Red Shift :o)
Ken: doc: i'm never clear anyway--not a scientologist
Dexter Fong: Cat: Yes....CD start with act too...............late
doctec: bunny, dex: damn i'm sorry, don't know how that happened. I will send you replacement discs (just the disc labeled, not the jewel case)
klokwkdog: (in his best L. Cohen voice)...did you ever get 'clear'?
Rotonoto: in three acts, three of them unnatural, two against the state...
C. Simril: uh oh
Ken: the only natural axe is made of obsidian
nurse judy: clear spot
Dexter Fong: Doc =) As I said..I though maybe cat decided he liked it in that order
klokwkdog used to play Warnes' Famous Blue Raincoat CD over and over at work...
||||||||| It's 10:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Mudhead - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Bunnyboy: doc: Aw, thanks. Who needs linear concepts, anyway. Digitalis uber alles!
C. Simril: maybe i should have listened to the cds before sending them off, doc?
Dexter Fong: Roto: ANd none of them featuring Mimes
Ken: it WAS his liver.....
klokwkdog: that's right, Cat: analog is dead! make it all PCM! You have nothing to lose but quantizing noise!
Bambi: and Mimes are a terrible thing to waste
nurse judy: as Marcel Marceau would say, " "
C. Simril: i wonder if that's why the 2 radio guys i sent it to didn't play it
Ken: i loved the "waist basket" in planet proctor :)
Rotonoto: turn up your stereo full balst with nothing playing- it will drive the mime next door crazy
Dexter Fong: (Hic) I saw this Mime and he was sho washted ....he shtarted talking
Bambi: hehehe
klokwkdog: LOL, Roto
llanwydd: Mimes are hard to record arent' they?
doctec: sorry roto, i just flooded you with msgs meant for group
Ken: llanwydd: you heard one, you've heard 'em all
klokwkdog: not if you know how to listen...
Dexter Fong: Blue Man Group has a new CD out...go figure
C. Simril: Dick and Mimi, old folk duo or new firesign joke?
nurse judy: i just put on a blank tape with headphones and turn the volume all the way up
doctec: anyway, to dex: no, mis-ordered cds are my screwup
Ken: doc: don't feel bad, i did that to bambi earlier. wondered why nothing i typed showed up in this window....
doctec: i made two or three extras this weekend and they must be defective (much like myself)
Bunnyboy: Recently watched the original SINGING DETECTIVE miniseries. Wotta trip!
klokwkdog: we all do that with lots of entree under our belt now and then
nurse judy: more dick jokes more dick jokes
Ken: judy: you should see mine--would die laughing ;)
klokwkdog: Why did Nixon cross the road?
doctec: should send out email to all recipients that if the acts are in the wrong order, notify me and i'll fix
llanwydd: sounds like a singular sinister attitude of mime
Dexter Fong pats DT on back and smiles
Ken: to avoid impeachment?
Rotonoto: But first- do you suffer from acute anxiety in your internet chat group? Want to flee the country? Call us- you can appear on Maury soon!
nurse judy: to bomb the other side
Bunnyboy: To double-cross the other side.
klokwkdog: four saints in five acts do we have?
doctec: (just when you think you really have your shit together... sigh...)
Dexter Fong: Klok: Yeah! SD is a great series
Ken: doc: more fiber, my man, more fiber.....
nurse judy: pork fat pork fat
doctec: dex: i've heard blue man group's first cd, i really liked it
Ken: BAM!
Bambi: yes?
Bambi: LOL
klokwkdog: that doesn't consolidate it, Ken, just makes it float (thanks Marilou!)
doctec: ken: i've been eating tons of it lately. lost 8 pounds in 3 wks
Rotonoto: My next ambush interview- old high school friends who ended up being spammers...
Ken: no, that was "emeril loves pork fat 'BAM'"
Dexter Fong: Klok or anyone? Have you read any of the finally released sealed McCarthy Hearing transcripts?
Bambi: or was that BAM! 14 cloves of garlic
doctec: by may 12 (i month since modifying my eating habits) i should be down 10
klokwkdog: Have you no sense of deceny, Dex?
Bambi: kick it up a notch
Ken: doc: that's next monday! good luck. (as if you need to lose weight)
Rotonoto: are you, or have you ever been...
nurse judy: belt it out a notch
klokwkdog: ...a member of the Republican Pary?
Dexter Fong: Klok: It's a hoot. ANyone who stood up to him was immediately dismissed and never called on
Bambi: LOL
Bunnyboy: Heard the "Grover's Mill" line again, and reminded of recent Muppet news: The Henson family gets to buy back the Muppet rights...for 89 mil.
C. Simril: i'm looking forward to earing well in SF, as i always have in the past
doctec: dex: haven't read, but heard some excerpts and analysis on npr this week - he was a scary guy, no doubt about it
Rotonoto: "Eat healthy, exercise, and die anyway." a true cynic's bumper slogan
Bambi: signs 'ze papers old man
nurse judy: martians?
klokwkdog: yeah, I saw the 20-sec synopsis on TV news (lest anyone realize how close it is to current political "debate")
Ken: mauritanians
Dexter Fong: DT: Yeah, but like most scary things, when confronted, the scariness dissipated and what was left was just a failed human being
Ken: damn--wish i had some catnip to smoke....
nurse judy: give me another martini, shaken not stirred
klokwkdog: it's to the point that the Dixie Chicks are now gonna beat up Ashleigh Banfield in order to clear their name...
Rotonoto: and I thought McCarthy was a wooden dummy on Edgar Bergen's knee- what did I know?
doctec: have to ken: i am at least 25 pounds overweight, had to start doing something about it
Dexter Fong: Ken: Going back to college
C. Simril: martian play? try red shift
nurse judy: in which order?
Ken: or maybe some banana peels?
doctec: all i do is count calories and keep the total below what i burn in a day - otherwise, pretty much eat whatever i want
Bunnyboy: Roger Moore's in the hospital. Collapsed during a matinee in NY.
Bambi: reels? which reel
Ken: bun: how old is he now?
klokwkdog always approaches that kind of problem ouside the box, DT. Figures if he eats more, won't be 25 over anymore
nurse judy: eat yourself?
doctec: (although i have cut out the sodas & potato chips to a very large degree, found acceptible substitutes that are not so fat & sugar laden)
Osama Bip Yamamoto: sausge+anchovies=WMD
Bunnyboy: Ken: 75.
Dexter Fong: BB: It was the ticket price what got 'im
ah,clem: the last reel
nurse judy: RM's nipples fell off
Osama Bip Yamamoto: He may meet the saint soon
Rotonoto: geez, bun- the guy's in his mid-70's. In my mind, always a trim 40 and licensed to kill ;o)
