bonemeister: http://www.firesigntheatre.com/podcasting/list.php An impressive list of mp3 freebies at FST.com
the dalai llanwydd: evenin bone
klokwkdog: however, if you Windows Media Player in WebTV only accepts streams in Windows Media Audio (.wma), then you may be SOL
Bightrethighrehighre: now I got to go "eat my "lunch"....
klokwkdog: I don't know much about Web TV

''Pops'' Yamamoto: I like it

principalPoop: ok klok
klokwkdog: Yam - my last employer gave me one. I beat on it for 18 months; it never failed me. However, when I took it apart to add a hard drive, I 'bout puked.
cease: bergman once said the fireign theatre was aimed at the intelligent teen ager
principalPoop: i have mono maybe cough cough
cease: better than stereo
bonemeister: heck no I'm 48 years old
cease: you'd have to cough with your ass
principalPoop: better than nothing
klokwkdog: e-Machines only had one connector on the drive cable and a miniature 160 watt power supply and the single hard drive was just kinda screwed to the front panel with a little clip
principalPoop: I can do that too, ahh the benefits of aging
klokwkdog: and the case edges would slice you hand they were so thin. but even so, it never ever failed to work properly
''Pops'' Yamamoto: Mine wasn't like that
''Pops'' Yamamoto: It has a drive cage that clips in and is secured by a screw
principalPoop: hey banana nose junior
klokwkdog: Poop - has Mark Shuttleworth sent you a thank-you note?
''Pops'' Yamamoto: The case is thick, for a cheap computer it isn't. It has 7 USB ports, front sound ports, IEEE 1394 connectors and an onboard multi-card reader
principalPoop: how big was the hard drive?
klokwkdog: gee, Yam must've paid the $20 extra for the "delux" model ;-))
''Pops'' Yamamoto: That for $282.00 after rebate
''Pops'' Yamamoto: 60
klokwkdog: in my e-Machine? about 3.5" wide and about 5-1/2 inches long, Poop
principalPoop: who? what? huh? I guess not....
''Pops'' Yamamoto: hahahaha
klokwkdog: they charged extra for the 7" long hard drive
||||||||| klokwkdog rushes off, saying "9:35 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
''Pops'' Yamamoto: I've got the AMD sempron, and that's a decent chip
principalPoop: ahhh 60 is not bad, my ibm has a 10, still works when I start it up
the dalai llanwydd: is a sempron anything like a semprini?
''Pops'' Yamamoto: I have a gateway I built w/a 733 and 10 gigger, works fine
principalPoop: I need real pron not semi-pron
''Pops'' Yamamoto: Sempron is the AMD Celeron
''Pops'' Yamamoto: But better
the dalai llanwydd: oh, I see
principalPoop: how is your llama dalai?
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'Ah, Canadian', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:37 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the vestibule...
Merlyn: I may have fixed it
''Pops'' Yamamoto: I had an athlon 3200+ on my last box, and there's no real difference that I ccan see
principalPoop: ahhh, canadian eh?
the dalai llanwydd: evenin m'sieur
principalPoop: you fixed the llama
cease: ok, got the mac to work again
''Pops'' Yamamoto: Of course, I don't run Windows, so there's that performance boost :)
||||||||| "9:39 PM? I'm late!" exclaims Ah, Canadian, who then hurries out through the french doors and down through the garden.
''Pops'' Yamamoto: Hit it w/a schtick
principalPoop: au revoir
principalPoop: put a towel over it
cease: is this from lets eat?
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and announces "Presenting 'Dexter Fong', just granted probation at 9:39 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Merlyn: BRB
||||||||| Merlyn hurries out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's Merlyn?! It's 9:39 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
Dexter Fong: Lo dere
bonemeister: au revoir dogs
''Pops'' Yamamoto: I'm Dual bootong SuSE and Debian on this box

cease: well, its mr. italy
principalPoop: knoppix did not like my nvidia card or usb to cable modem, ubuntu had no trouble at all
''Pops'' Yamamoto: May try BSD this weekend
''Pops'' Yamamoto: Knoppix is funny about hardware
the dalai llanwydd: bourbon roasted beef

bonemeister: http://www.well.com/user/silly/toon01.html
||||||||| "Hey Dexter Fong!" ... Dexter Fong turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 9:40 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
principalPoop: the applications included are fantastic
||||||||| Catherwood leads Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (9:40 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
''Pops'' Yamamoto: Yes they are
principalPoop: fong passed 1
Dexter Fong: Hi dere
''Pops'' Yamamoto: Did you get the DVD?
principalPoop: just the cd
the dalai llanwydd: did dex sneak in and out of here somehow?

bonemeister: so throw a towel over your self-referential massage, Pablo
principalPoop: are you channeling again commiemartyr, give me that remote
CommieMartyr: cease, just hold your thumb on the script like I do...
the dalai llanwydd: if the medium is the message, we read too much meaning into it
Dexter Fong: Cat: Thing is with the "eats" there were maybe 13 or 14 or so, full hours. All edited down to 10 1/2 hour shows
bonemeister: abstain... disabuse yourself

the dalai llanwydd: the communications expert who couldn't communicate
bonemeister: Czechs can listen to jazz music and not be bounced
cease: an arrticle from when they released radio now, including a lot about their history. it said, i think wrongly, that the dear friends radio shows, the original 1 hour discs, were compiled from older stuff, like the mushroom days, the morning show and hour hour. i dont think so
the dalai llanwydd: I miss the DF album. haven't heard it in years
TweenIraq&ahardplace: I still play Dear Friends frequently. Excellent. Are there other compilations like that out there?
bonemeister: bonemeister cease... Is that the message?
Dexter Fong: Cat: I agree with you, they certainly may have recycled some stuff, and maybe did a bit of pre-production, but mainly the shows were IMO one hour real time, direct to tape
CommieMartyr: Drop your load on the Giant Toad
bonemeister: there are freebie Dear Friends mp3s at FST.com
TweenIraq&ahardplace: They're marketing supermen!
cease: i should try and contact the author, wonder where he got that info. of course, much easier just to ask the fireguys

CommieMartyr: Al Chemical makes mirrors too?

||||||||| Catherwood enters with klokwkdog close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 10:30 PM tree-stunting plans, and hurries off to the vestibule.
principalPoop: but the mirrors are turned around on the wall so he can comb the back of his head
TweenIraq&ahardplace: Been reading Vonnegut. Those are called leaks where we come from, CM.

Bunnyboy: Albert Brooks' wonderful old comedy routine about opening for Richie Havens, UNANNOUNCED, in TEXAS, features this line from one of the locals:
Bunnyboy: "Yeah, we had Al Capp here last month! He's a witty guy!"
CommieMartyr: LOL Merlyn
klokwkdog: it didn't make sense to me as a kid and it was too complicated to fit in the small frames the newspapers gave it when I was an adult
