Dexter Fong: Ken: A lotta Dixie chicks wear those, and Bangles too
Merlyn: If I ever rewrite this code, I'll let people reserve their name with a password, so they can log over their names automatically
Dexter Fong: Also the Namaths
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Dixie Chicks? TRATORS!!!!
Dr. Headphones: yeah, toby keith RULEZ
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I only listen to AMERICAN MUSIC
Dexter Fong: Tratorians?
Dr. Headphones sings "grid bless amerika...."
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I heard him on Sean Hannity today. Liked to puke
Merlyn: isn't dixie in south america?
Merlyn: free traders?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Hank Williams must be spinning in his grave
Dexter Fong: Thats Dick Si
Dr. Headphones: if it's free, you don't need to trade it
Maynard G. Yamamoto: If It's free trade, how come I gotta pay $$$$?
al-klokwkdog: Dex - you can d/l Netscape 7.1 (or Mozilla if you don't want all the fancies) in a couple minutes on broadband, about 30 MB
Dr. Headphones: well, you could probably use euros
Dr. Headphones: dex: get mozilla 1.5, it's netscape lite (or is netscape actually mozilla heavy?)
al-klokwkdog: €uuuu...
Dexter Fong: Klok: Will do so when all the wrinkles are ironed out which will happen at Thanksgiving when son arrives
Dr. Headphones: dex: use a steam iron for those wrinkles
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Mozilla Fat Bastard, that
al-klokwkdog: I use NS 7.1 'cause it has integrated AIM and reads my Netcenter mail in the mail reader as POP; aside that, Mozilla a better long-term approach
Dr. Headphones: http://mozilla.org
Dexter Fong: K: Thank-a you so much for-a laundry information
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Mozilla et two hundredweights of King Edwards
Maynard G. Yamamoto: You want Im, get Gaim
al-klokwkdog: NS 7.1 has a GDI page cache problem that won't be fixed, but Moz. 1.5 already has.
Dexter Fong: Klok: What's a GDI page cache
al-klokwkdog: not a biggie, just screen goes funny after a few hours of opening multiple tabbed windows and I have to close Netscape and restart it.
Maynard G. Yamamoto: http://gaim.sourceforge.net/
Dr. Headphones: dex: you don't want to know, but you don't want to f**k with it either. a memory thief
Maynard G. Yamamoto: All IM's and IRC in one small program
al-klokwkdog: it's part of Windows' rendering system and Netscape has some kind of trouble managing it when it's doing fancy stuff
Dr. Headphones: rendering has something to do with lard, doesn't it?
Dexter Fong: Ken: I'm feeling threatened here, is there any room in your bunker?
Dr. Headphones: no bunker beds here, sorry, everyone sleeps on the same level
al-klokwkdog: rendering has to do with building a window in an idealized form and then asking the OS to try to fit it on the user's real screen
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I'd like to find someone on whose level I can sleep
Dexter Fong: Is that level seven of the underground parking screw?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: or on whom I can sleep
Dr. Headphones: don't think i've ever screwed underground
Dexter Fong: Yam: As an old prize fighter once advised me, when you step out of your class, step down
al-klokwkdog: so the programmer writes one set of instructions to paint the window and Windows takes care of making it happen on the user's Etch-A-Sketch or whatever
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I have an old Army Buddy who has popped up at odd times. Wish to fuck she'd pop up now
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Dex, you don't get much lower than me
al-klokwkdog: darn, Dex, I never got beyond level five in that stupid game! congrats!
Dr. Headphones: only john ashcroft is authorized to go to level 6
al-klokwkdog: wait a minute...underground parking screw. is level 7 better or worse than level 5? I forget. These backwards things puzzle the heck out of me; it's like Norton instead of Thevenin
Maynard G. Yamamoto: 7 is closer to nthe bottom of Hell
Dexter Fong: Klok: It's like theven not thix
Dr. Headphones: if underground, shouldn't the numbers be negative?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Fulla cerebrus poo, that level
al-klokwkdog: but Hell is kind of the bottom, so is the bottom of Hell the top?
Dr. Headphones: park on level -5
Dexter Fong: K: That's a negatory
al-klokwkdog: not if the reference frame is itself considered negative, Ken
Maynard G. Yamamoto: You have to stand on your head
al-klokwkdog: now it's morning!
Dr. Headphones: positive numbers go both ways from zero? logical impossibility!
Dexter Fong: Space is curved: What was down is now up, what was up is now zero
Maynard G. Yamamoto: And cats can knock anything off of anything
al-klokwkdog: Ken, if you define the number refernce universe as negative, then positive numbers have - signs...
Dexter Fong: Absomentally
Dr. Headphones: which reminds me, i missed episode 3 of "the elegant universe" tuesday, will have to watch on web now
al-klokwkdog: it's what Ben Franklin did with electricity. Current as electrons actually flows from the - battery terminal to the +, but everyone views it in the opposite frame 'cause of Ben's decision
Dexter Fong: Ah..Ben Franklin, the frent
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Just put the balls on the other side
Dexter Fong: ah fart
al-klokwkdog: and then Tesla came along and postulated AC and Steinmetz got involved and I'm just real confused
Dr. Headphones: ben should have stuck with porn and government, left electricity to the edison's and tesla's
Merlyn: tesla, oklahoma?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Beyod my hgumble brain
Dr. Headphones: livin' on tesla time
Dexter Fong: Brian Hgumble
al-klokwkdog: ride my pony on the reservation...
Maynard G. Yamamoto: porn AND government?
Dexter Fong: Back to that riff I see
Maynard G. Yamamoto: there's a difference?
al-klokwkdog: edison never understood it properly and tesla understood it all too well
Dr. Headphones: yeah, ben wrote a book about farts. last i looked, was available on amazon
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Traci Lords looks nicer than Ted Kennedy, but they're both old whores
Dexter Fong: Ken: Thought that was Mark Twain who wrote the book about farts
Dr. Headphones: well, technically, farts aren't porn, but same area of the body
al-klokwkdog: now there's a case of someone taking a negative reference system and saying it's positive. i'm getting tired of the nightly news with some admin bozo saying down is up...
Dr. Headphones: dex: search amazon for franklin fart see if it comes up
Dexter Fong: Klok: They're gonna keep it up until they wear us down
al-klokwkdog: who is Franklin Fart?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Eructations of the Rich and Famous
Dexter Fong: Franklin Frent's cousin
Dr. Headphones: well, the proper boolean would be franklin AND fart, but amazon lets you cheat
al-klokwkdog: Nah, they figure if they keep saying it, it "becomes true". Faith-based foreign policy.
Dexter Fong: Rich and famous Etruscans...wow! Does Robin Leach know?
al-klokwkdog: what is the boolean character for cheat? i tried to find one in Google, but it's not in the advanced help
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Is he still alive?
Dexter Fong: Boolean?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Robin Leach
al-klokwkdog: Yeah. he's got a faaaabulous villa in Mexico City
Dr. Headphones: naw, boole died in 1800s i think
Dexter Fong: Boolean = Yalie i.e. "Boola Boola
Dr. Headphones: but his algebra lives on
Maynard G. Yamamoto: The bane of teenagers
Dexter Fong: The bane of teen-age poregnancy
Dr. Headphones: boon or bane? we debate after this word from our sponsor....
Dexter Fong: Hi fireends...I'm not an algebra teacher but I do wear glasses
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I'm not a communist, and I don't look like one
Dexter Fong: But you talk like one
Maynard G. Yamamoto: no
Maynard G. Yamamoto: not ME
Dexter Fong: See denial, typical commie trick
al-klokwkdog: Hi, I'm not a communist, but I play one on the Nightly Newscast for CBS...
Dr. Headphones: will chairman mccarthy swear in the witness, please?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: damn, caught again
Dexter Fong: Come in and raise your goddam hand you commie bastard
al-klokwkdog: if you're not for us, you're against us (well, Boole would be proud, even if they don't use the notation)
Maynard G. Yamamoto raises hand w/middle finger extended THUSLY
Dr. Headphones: klok: sounds like a NAND gate to me
al-klokwkdog: bring 'em on!
Dr. Headphones: i have a 10' gate in my fence
Dexter Fong: Mr. Chairman..I recognize that finger...I hjave a list here of 300 fingers in the state department
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I have no fence or gates, does a cat flap count?
Dr. Headphones: not all from the same hand, i hope!
al-klokwkdog: yep, binary politics in an analog world - works fine; impresses all the other countries
Dexter Fong: Good fences need Bill Gates
Dr. Headphones: cat flap jack? with terrier syrup and melted butter. yummy!
al-klokwkdog: that's why the big troop contingent from the Marshall Islands will be arriving in Iraq any day now
Dexter Fong: Ah the Marshall plan strikes again
Dr. Headphones: big? there are only about 10K people total there, aren't there?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Don't forget little Togo
Dexter Fong: And Godzilla
Dr. Headphones: togo or nottogo? that is the question....
al-klokwkdog: they're all going to Iraq, Ken
Dexter Fong slips away for a refill
Dr. Headphones: is that the place that's being inundated by rising sea level or is it niue/nauru/some godforsaken island?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Along with 87 billion washingtons
al-klokwkdog: Just like Vietnam -- the grunts are going to talk to some bozo doing nothing and find out he's being paid 4X what they are so his country will have a "presence" there
al-klokwkdog: naru
al-klokwkdog: nauru, actually
Dr. Headphones: do they still hunt heads there?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Naru, naruru, it's all the same
al-klokwkdog: it's sea level plus they sold most of it as it consisted mainly of bird droppings
Dr. Headphones: guano is good stuff if you're a farmer
Maynard G. Yamamoto: One man's shit is another mans...guano
al-klokwkdog: no, that's Papua, New Guinea and no, they don't. I think the folks is West Irian are plenty mad enough to, though
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Ecuador or Peru used to export the stuff
Dr. Headphones: send those indonesians back to armenia or something like that
al-klokwkdog: Yeah, I'm reading about Paris, 1919 and the Australians and NZ fought like cats and dogs for Nauru
Maynard G. Yamamoto: No, it's all full of Armenians
Dexter Fong slips back into place like a well worn third gear
al-klokwkdog: they made so much fuss that the British decided they would take it
Dr. Headphones: dex: get your synchros oiled
Dexter Fong: "Children, if you going to squabble over it, I'm taking it away"
Maynard G. Yamamoto me just rolls along like a fifth wheel
Dexter Fong: Yam: How's your milage
al-klokwkdog: yeah, they "took it away" all right. by the 1970s, most of it, in fact, and not a penny to the natives...
Dr. Headphones: hmmm. not a penny to the natives. sounds suspiciously like OUR natives
Dexter Fong: Klok: And so it goes
al-klokwkdog: then they got guilty or something and gave it back and the Australians showed up to "manage" the profits, none of which were ever seen again
||||||||| Catherwood says "10:42 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Dave by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
al-klokwkdog: ken - they didn't kill them all...
Dexter Fong: Bye Dave
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Well, you know those Brown Ppl cant handle money, anyeway
Dr. Headphones: like motion picture profits. the more they rake in, the more you don't make
al-klokwkdog: well, they have a bit of money and are now looking for another island...
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I have a bridge in Brooklyn
Maynard G. Yamamoto: a tree growing there, too
Dr. Headphones: my dad has a bridge in his mouth
Dexter Fong: Just a mention: It's about damn time one of the 4 or 5 showed up again
al-klokwkdog: was reading about the Canadian natives in NYT today and apparently one group that hasn't settled claims a good bit of Vancouver...
Maynard G. Yamamoto: not intil I leave
Maynard G. Yamamoto: They hate me
Dexter Fong: Bye Yam =)))
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dave close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 10:45 PM tree-stunting plans, and runs off to the Aviary.
Maynard G. Yamamoto: bah
Dexter Fong: Hey again Dave and Oi too
al-klokwkdog: well, where else would they get such a welcome reception?
al-klokwkdog: welcome back Dave
Dave: oops, Merl, if you sent a message last, didn't get it, don't know how I did that
Dexter Fong: Klok: Indeed
al-klokwkdog: Doc T has been rare lately, too. Any word on Lili?
Dexter Fong: A number of no shows recently
Dr. Headphones: no word from here except the public word last time he was in chat
Dexter Fong: and that was?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: That lili was on the mend IIRC
Dr. Headphones: lili still in pain, but healing
al-klokwkdog: uncomfortable, more so than expected, but nothing abnormally complicated
Dr. Headphones: i'm leaving now, please wait until i'm gone to talk about me. g'nite all
Dexter Fong: ah...yes, thought i might have missed something what with the vacation and the parking and all
Dexter Fong: Night Ken
Maynard G. Yamamoto talks about ken now
Dr. Headphones: but i WILL read the log!
al-klokwkdog: nite K
||||||||| Dr. Headphones runs out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Dr. Headphones?! It's 10:49 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Dexter Fong: Hey Yam did you here about Ken and the Halloween Gerbil?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Do I want to?
al-klokwkdog is maybe good 4 another 5 min. out of beer tonite
Dexter Fong: You are wise to be wary, young Highlander =)
Dave: oh I heard it was a hamster Dex
Dexter Fong: Gerbil first, gearing up for a hammster I believe
Maynard G. Yamamoto dons protective equipment
Dexter Fong Lends Yam his steel drawers
Dave: my family used to have a hamster, fat little thing it was, made a shitload of noise when it ate
Dexter Fong: Hamsters not really great pet, they won't retrieve or sit up and beg or shake hands or anything
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I had one, I tw ould escape from itts cage and crawl into bed and sleep w/me
Dexter Fong: Yam: How'd you train it to fo that?
Dave: slightly disturbing Yam but ok
al-klokwkdog: it's all on the enhanced animals page
Maynard G. Yamamoto: It just liked me a lot
Dexter Fong: Leave a trail of Hamster num-nums?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: scared the spork out of me the first time
al-klokwkdog: some steroids, some stem cells, some cereberal cortex scraps...
Dexter Fong: Sure...like" Yikes, the giant rat of Sinatra
Maynard G. Yamamoto: indeedy
al-klokwkdog: well, the trick is the steroids, to fight rejection
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Flung the poor thing across the room
Dexter Fong: Klok: If I take steroids and like hit on some really beautiful young girl, I won't get rejected?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: He survived, amazingly
Dave: haha Yam, if I was the creature, I'd fucking bite your finger off or something
Dexter Fong: Yam: Tough love
al-klokwkdog: actually, i am thinking about donkeys; much more realistic than the Russian Mammoth scheme with elephants or the US Jurassic Park project.
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Dave: he not only survived, but came back multiiple times
Dexter Fong: Klok: Really burrowing into the subject, eh?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I duct-taped the habitrail 6 ways from sunday, and he got out anyway
al-klokwkdog: Dex - if you take steroids, you're likely to just go around beating the crap out of everyone and if the young thing doesen't reject you, you won't be able to perform, so...
Dexter Fong: K: But I'll have nipples that can cut glass...a useful but seldom asked for skill
al-klokwkdog: sheesh, don't you RTFM that comes with those things? hamster saliva is a solvent for duct tape!
Maynard G. Yamamoto: ha
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Drx, that's a mental picture I'd rather not have
Maynard G. Yamamoto shivers
Dexter Fong: Yam: Makes it difficult to take a mamogram too
al-klokwkdog: it's like mouse urine dissolving common building materials; i thought everyone knew that after that bunch of modified ones got loose from Ft. Dietrich in the '60s
Dexter Fong: Keep falling through the glass
Maynard G. Yamamoto: The amazing thing is the little bugger never got et by the cats'
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
al-klokwkdog: did you keep count of the cats?
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Usually 4+
Dexter Fong: Oh yeah, Klok: The "Great Mouse whiz scare of '62"
Maynard G. Yamamoto: I have 4.75 now
al-klokwkdog: well, everyone concentrates on the Rocky Mountain Spotted fever epidemic centered around that base, but there was also a serious mouse problem
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Prolly mutant mice
Dexter Fong: Mutant Blues, they call them Brad er uh Yam
al-klokwkdog: no, the actual mutant mice are all on Plum Island, near Oyster Bay
al-klokwkdog: at least, the ones the US made...
al-klokwkdog: oh, aside from those that GE patented in 1999
Dexter Fong: "You can tell it a mutant..it says made in the USA"
al-klokwkdog: actually, Dex, they can't talk. that's just a rumor
Dexter Fong: Klok: True, but they can sign
Dexter Fong: ..on the dotted line and this mutant mouse is yours
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Gimme 2!
Dexter Fong: Sorry only one to a customer
Maynard G. Yamamoto: bah
Dexter Fong: Mutant Mouse Whiz comin' at you in shorts and shorters
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Do you deliver to sector "R" or "M"?
al-klokwkdog: actually, no, not that, either. they are used for placing surveillance gear and simply respond to goal patterns presented to them on drawings, powerpoint presentations (LCD screens only), and blueprints
Dexter Fong: R = Rodent...M = Mouse...sure
Dexter Fong: Mutant Blue prints
al-klokwkdog: they are also supposed to be sterile, but we all know how slipshod the military is about that kind of thing
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Give em little rubbers
al-klokwkdog: i think it would be better to cross a mouse with a rat or something
Dexter Fong: Hey..you try to find the gonads on a mouse, it ain't easy buddy
Maynard G. Yamamoto: or put em in Baggies®
Maynard G. Yamamoto: The mice manage
al-klokwkdog: not funny if there are 10 million of them and they understand the floor plan of most housing...
Dexter Fong: Yam: Love that little "registered" mark
Maynard G. Yamamoto: alt + 0174
Dexter Fong: Klok: Let 'em find they're way around a Frank Geary building
Dexter Fong: ®
Maynard G. Yamamoto: yep
Dexter Fong: Registered®
al-klokwkdog: there is nothing much to eat in museums after hours.
Maynard G. Yamamoto: also ©
al-klokwkdog: ©
Dexter Fong: Eat the Diaramas
Maynard G. Yamamoto: alt +169
al-klokwkdog:
al-klokwkdog:
||||||||| It's 11:10 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...
Dexter Fong: Bye Dave
Dexter Fong: Dead“
Dexter Fong: phoo
al-klokwkdog: no, the thing is they understand plumbing, HVAC, sealants, and, for support reasons, opening most food containers.
Dexter Fong: Dead®
al-klokwkdog: and traps
Dexter Fong: Klok: I'm beginning to think you know just a little too much about this stuff...maybe you were part of it, hmmmmm?
al-klokwkdog: well, this is all stuff that was renounced, or which didn't work as expected
Dexter Fong: That about covers everything doesn't it?
al-klokwkdog: so what's left of it after shutdown that couldn't be safe at CDC went to Plum Is.
al-klokwkdog: and since that's just across the Sound, it's a bit of a concern here
Dexter Fong: Why didn't they just start breeding them with really dumb-ass mice and soon they'd be back to normal
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Mutant Mice reduce Real Estate Values
al-klokwkdog: the idea being that nothing would be able to swim from Plum Is. to LI
Maynard G. Yamamoto: They'll take the ferry
al-klokwkdog: ah, you haven't checked real estate values in the area. wrong
al-klokwkdog: there is no ferry; it's a contract boat, and it's fumigated
Dexter Fong: Yikes! The bluefish would eat them and then they'd be really smart and they're really vicious
Maynard G. Yamamoto: They're cornering the market
al-klokwkdog: not likely, but interesting
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Could make a good movie
Dexter Fong: Wondered why all the rooms at the Montauk Mouse Inn were so small...even the bell boys were hump-backed
al-klokwkdog: actually, mules would be the safest, but you never know what tinkering further might do to the sterility thing
al-klokwkdog: Dex - that's just in the summer, when the NYC crowd is on vacation
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Thank god Francis was sterile
Maynard G. Yamamoto: How many more movies would we be subjected to if that wasn't the case?
Dexter Fong: Klok: Not any more..all the NYC beautiful people now going up to the Catskills and just North..Brad and Jen bought a big place up there
Dexter Fong: Son of Francis...Bride of Francis...The House of Francis...Abbot and Costello Meet Francis...the list is endles
Maynard G. Yamamoto: Which is why Ulster Co rents are doubled over the last yr
al-klokwkdog: oy vey! are they going to build a theater? shades of Branson!
Dexter Fong: You got it Yam=\
Dexter Fong: Bronson...along came Bronson, Klok
Maynard G. Yamamoto: You can't get around for the traffic any more
al-klokwkdog: no, Branson, MO
Dexter Fong: Klok: Yes ;=)
al-klokwkdog: wait'll they go thru a winter there...
Dexter Fong: KLok: They only go in the summer and early fall
Maynard G. Yamamoto: The Easy bits
al-klokwkdog: better they should have gotten some place in Fairfield or the Berkshires
Maynard G. Yamamoto: They Hire ppl to go thru the winter for them

Maynard G. Yamamoto: as am I
Dexter Fong: Klok: Be well
Maynard G. Yamamoto: later all
al-klokwkdog: fading fast; night everyone
||||||||| "Hey Maynard G. Yamamoto!" ... Maynard G. Yamamoto turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 11:21 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Dexter Fong: Sheesh, I park early and everybodies crapping out
al-klokwkdog: poof!!
Dexter Fong: who you calling a poof?
al-klokwkdog: yes, but we appreciate it no end, Dex.
||||||||| al-klokwkdog rushes off, saying "11:21 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
Merlyn: I've been working on chat stuff...
Merlyn: looks like everyone has left
Dexter Fong: We've been chatting and stuff =)
Dexter Fong: Yeah Merl...Guess I'll get out too, thanks for the hosting =)
||||||||| flatulent bastard rushes off, saying "11:23 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
Merlyn: bye.
||||||||| Catherwood says "11:24 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs Merlyn by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| It's 11:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
