A Firesign Chat


||||||||| 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 February 12, 2004 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| Dexter Fong sneaks in around 9:13 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
||||||||| Catherwood leads C. Simril inside, makes a note of the time (9:14 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Dexter Fong: There's always an unpleasant incident when Catherwoods around.....and he can't tell time either
C. Simril: Hi Dex
Dexter Fong: Hey Cat =)
||||||||| Merlyn sneaks in around 9:14 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last week's "unpleasant incident."
C. Simril: tell time what?
Dexter Fong: Hi Merl
C. Simril: hey time, how's it going?
Merlyn: hello
C. Simril: got any spare strings?
Dexter Fong sings "Turn back the hands of time"
Dexter Fong: I got string...you got a theory?
C. Simril: hey merl, you didnt answer my question and i'[m stuck with the google interview with dimento wedded to my desktop
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Obi-Yäm-a-møŧo', just granted probation at 9:15 PM", then leaves hurriedly.

stephnfosterkane-klok: one step forward, two steps back...
C. Simril: like foo fighters except brothers?
stephnfosterkane-klok: I think something put a paren on that link; it should've been http://www.cashncarrion.co.uk/?listPos=&productID=105&search=&op=catalogue-product_info-null&prodCategoryID=5
Full Metal Yämamøto : If Bush nipped off w/o reporting to duty, he's violated article 86 of the Uniform Code of Military Toughness
Dr. Headphones: £14.03? why not £13.95?
Dexter Fong: Fuse Bros, work for the Electrician
C. Simril: klok, when you send me urls in your emails, i cant open them
doctec: richard and garson
stephnfosterkane-klok: the heavier the better, Ken
C. Simril: since i cancelled opera, cuz i got some virus from it
Dexter Fong: Richard Rogers and Greer Garson?
doctec: and harold bronson is involved in the new label too
Full Metal Yämamøto : musta been a Wagnerian Version
stephnfosterkane-klok: that's part of the plan, Cat -- I have a URL frustrator option built into my mailer that totally futzes them all
doctec: cat: i expect it wasn't opera's fault directly but a setting within regarding how attachments are handled
Dr. Headphones: i LOVE the smell of pay records in the morning!
C. Simril: also, merlyn gave me url of dr. dimento/firesign interview and as i couldnt open it, i saved it as a shortcut on my desktop, thinking i could easily get rid of it from there. proves not the case
doctec: the only way you can get a virus from an email is if you open an attachment
C. Simril: must be, doc
doctec: if opera was set up to automatically open all attachments that came in with your other mail, then that would cause the virus to launch
C. Simril: i nver open attachments
stephnfosterkane-klok: Doc - I thought that some Windows settings would automagically open some scripts that could do nasties, all the better reason to avoid Outlook Express
Elayne: Oh, speaking of attachments - Cat, did you get my e-mail earlier? I think I got a phantom attachment/virus with your name and e-address faked.
doctec: not directly, but if opera was set up to open them for you (ms outlook does the same thing)...
C. Simril: wow. bummer, el
Elayne: I wanted to be sure it wasn't an actual attachment before I deleted it.
Elayne: Okay, then you didn't e-mail me anything this morning?
Full Metal Yämamøto : These Japanes snaps are alternately beautiful and depressing
C. Simril: i was just telling you where to see the pix from japan and you and robin in red shift
Dr. Headphones: i tried updating my winxp from mozilla, billy boy won't allow that. MUST use msie
doctec: ...and there may be a windows xp setting (the operating system itself) that launched it
Elayne: Oh, then it's a legit attachment. Hang on, I'll read it. :)
doctec: i dunno, i wasn't there to witness what happened
C. Simril: i got an email from you saying you got a list from me and i responded to that, maybe around noon
Elayne: It just says "index.url" - is that okay to open, Tom?
doctec: when cat sends a url in an email, for some reason it comes across as an attachment
Full Metal Yämamøto : Ken-use the auto update
doctec: e: yeah, if he says he sent it
Elayne: Okay, it's safe then. Hang on, BRB.
C. Simril: ok, that's another bummer. it shouldn't do that
C. Simril: this frontline's pretty good
llanwydd: going to have a late dinner. be back in a while
Dexter Fong: Cat: How's the secondary?
Elayne: All I got was the Sidney Blumenthal article at http://www.salon.com/opinion/blumenthal/2004/02/12/kerry_nixon/index_np.html
doctec: also cat: while you may not want to use opera's email client, the browser part of it still kicks major ass
doctec: imho
C. Simril: ok doc. maybe if i reconnect to it, i can start opening urls in my mail from klok, et al
C. Simril: kend or someone recommended mazilla. i gather that isnt a gorilla
stephnfosterkane-klok: enjoy Ilan
Full Metal Yämamøto : I use firebird
doctec: e: the link cat sent jsut takes you to the Travelling Ishikawas section of the seemreal.com site - there's a link to it on cat's home page, which is why the link he sent you is 'index'
Dexter Fong: Cat: It all comes in a plain mazilla envelope
doctec: yammy: didn't they just change the name to firefox?
C. Simril: did he say "fucking chaos? on frontline?
Elayne: My people call it corn. (Now we can make whiskey!)
doctec: hic
Dexter Fong: I just invent the Bud Collins
doctec: i've just invented alcoholism!
Dexter Fong: Take 12 steps back please
C. Simril: that's one small step for man
Full Metal Yämamøto : Firefox? I hope not
doctec: and don't hang over...
Dr. Headphones: yam: i do, but heard that there was urgent critical, didn't know if i was totally up to date
Full Metal Yämamøto : have an older build
C. Simril: one lurch into the sea of tranquility

||||||||| "10:24 PM? I'm late!" exclaims doctec, who then runs out through the french doors and down through the garden.
Dexter Fong makes sounds of seagulls hanging out in dry wind
C. Simril: off goes doc
