J. Pianoforte: She's a fine girl
Honey Sanchez: cool llan
cease: in coffee shops in japan, when you order tea it usually comes with lemon, and sometimes a little bottle of brandy
principalpoop: sugar or honey, I did not want to offend
llanwydd: It's 300 miles away from me but I might check it out when I go down there on thanksgiving
Honey Sanchez: check it out =)
Elayne: Evenin' all! Can't stay long, really tired.
stephenfosterkane: hi E

stephenfosterkane makes tea-flavored lemonade, really
J. Pianoforte: GrEEtings
Honey Sanchez: hi elayne
cease: how are you and robin this week, el?
principalpoop: huh SFK?
stephenfosterkane: kind of same way that Kentucky Fried Chicken makes chicken-flavored donuts...
RedHeadedTweenger: Sounds scrumpous, dog...
J. Pianoforte: mmmmmm.....donuts....
Elayne: I'm a bit woozy, Cat. Slept from 8:30 PM to 2:30 AM, then couldn't get back to sleep for a few hours, then the day was kinda shot.
llanwydd: chicken donuts? eccccchhhhh
Elayne: Never go to sleep too early on a weeknight.
cease: bummer
Elayne: Plus I just watched that new Aaron Sorkin show, so I'm babbling in staccato.
Honey Sanchez: finger lickin good llan heh
Elayne: Does anyone else do that after watching Sorkin?
Dexter Forng: Oh... Hello Elayne.....Nice to ah..see you again....
cease: yes, that'll do it to you
RedHeadedTweenger: The lovely Lemon sisters...
principalpoop: ahh your clock is out of synch, I hate that
cease: did you enjoy it?
stephenfosterkane: that's what KFC is, not really chicken
llanwydd: chicken dumplings is one thing but donuts....no thanks
Elayne: I've done it even as far back as Sports Nite. Damn him, he rewires my brain for about an hour or so.
RedHeadedTweenger: My playlist is out of In Sync.
Elayne: Yeah, it was good Cat, except for the blond who totally doesn't get his rhythm.
llanwydd: I just made chicken salad for tomorrow
cease: yes i enjoyed sports night too
Elayne: Perry and (of course) Whitford are spectacular.
J. Pianoforte: Buffalo donuts
RedHeadedTweenger: Guess I'm not "hip" (or shoulder).
stephenfosterkane: poop -- I sweeten my tea and add lemon; the tea part is kind of a sideshow
llanwydd: my parents are vacationing in the area and they're coming over to my house for lunch tomorrow
cease: speaking of must see tv, our comedy channel is playing the lost chappelle shows tonigt
J. Pianoforte: Perry & Whitford? Aerosmith? (No, I really know who you're talking about)
RedHeadedTweenger: Do they have kinky hair, JP?
principalpoop: ok ok, same as me SFK
stephenfosterkane: also known as "Russian Tea" (when sweetened/flavored with couple spoonfuls of frozen orange juice)
llanwydd: no they have kinky friedman
Elayne: And I think it's probably not a good idea to have made it a total DVR night, with like three episodes of Black Adder followed by tonight's premiere of The Office followed by the Sorkin thing.
J. Pianoforte: No, that's what the buffalo leave behind...buffalo donuts
Elayne: Too much mental whiplash.
Bambi: love tea with sugar or honey, but generally that's all ... although I have had tea the british way and very much enjoy that was well. Lemon in tea is not my favorite thing.
Honey Sanchez: overkill, elayne
stephenfosterkane: except that REAL Russian Tea is made in a Samovar. From Tula. And has nothing to do with frozen orange juice
Dexter Forng: Tweenager: How did Kinky Friedman do in the Texas primary?
J. Pianoforte: Lemon tea, very nasty....
Elayne: Plus it was like "oh, that's Ed Helms, oh, that's Nate Corddry, oh, that's Simon Jones and Tom Baker in that Black Adder episode..."
cease: in japan, russian tea means with strawberry jam
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- surely you jest
principalpoop: from the original vinyl, oh my
Elayne: Brain leaking a bit.
llanwydd: I don't know but I doubt I'd vote for him
cease: are these black aders we havnet seen, el?

stephenfosterkane: llan -- have you looked at the alternatives?
Dexter Forng: klok: Not at all
Bambi: it's a good recording of the vinyl version ;-)
Dexter Forng: Haven't heard the results
principalpoop: Black adder is wonnnnnderful
Honey Sanchez: i would vote for manson if he was running against pat robertson!
principalpoop: ahh, I have been duped
llanwydd: actually I haven't kept abreast of the friedman campaign

Dexter Forng: TWEENY: How did Kinky do in the Texas primariy??
Bambi: love that 'classic' sound lol

llanwydd: Honey, how do you know Stones? do you also live in england?
RedHeadedTweenger: Kinky's in 2nd place to a very power Republican. That's what I call nice :-)
Elayne: I'm waiting for Black Adder III, because one thick George is never enough.
Dexter Forng: I route everything from my PC thru a crystal radio set
J. Pianoforte: Tween has been distracted...

Honey Sanchez: lol cat

Dexter Forng: just south of Mortar
llanwydd: so did I and neither have I bambi
stephenfosterkane: I thought Kinky was independent; what does it matter about a primary?
Dexter Forng: Twin Cities
Bambi: nope, actually next to Lakewood, NJ ;-)
J. Pianoforte: Down the road from Harvey's Bristol Creme?
cease: Texy, Tilebiter, he's a spy and a floor de-lighter
Elayne: No power of concentration left, passing today. Next week, all.

llanwydd: giuliani cleaned up times square
RedHeadedTweenger: Depends on which _part_ of NJ, Cat ;-) Some parts are quite nice...
Dexter Forng: Too bad he can't do something about his image
Bambi: that's N. Jersey ... quite a bit different from the Jersey Shore
Dexter Forng: Or South Jersey..say Camden
principalpoop: is Jersey older than younger than Paulie
cease: i took train thru it twice last may.
Bambi: my grandfather lived in Metuchen and we visited him periodically and it was like a different state
llanwydd: well, I understand there is far less crime since rudy
RedHeadedTweenger: That's funny, I used to live near Blackwell Lane in Bowie!
cease: most of it looked pretty decrepit
cease: maybe the train just goes thru the slums
principalpoop: they make big knives in Bowie
llanwydd: my grandparents lived in teaneck and my grandpa worked in manhattan
J. Pianoforte: Now I'm doing it, Tween...AHEM...I've been to Tom's River, NJ - not bad place.
Dexter Forng: llan: More Guiliani bull shit...Crime is down all over the US 'cept for a few scattered places...Rudy just took the credit for a social change
RedHeadedTweenger: Unless you're fighting 3000 Mexicans in San Antonio lol
principalpoop: resistance is futile JP, you will be assimilated
Bambi: then you passed near where we lived Johnny
Dexter Forng: Cat: Precisely, trains do run thru the older/oldest parts of most cities
llanwydd: so would you say he was better or worse than dinkins, dex?
J. Pianoforte: 10 years ago, Bambi. When I was doing the Bob Dole tour.
||||||||| Catherwood leads Bunnyboy inside, makes a note of the time (10:39 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bunnyboy: lo dere

Dexter Forng: llan: More efficient...far less honest and far far less modest

Bambi: hi Bunny
llanwydd: I never really judged his character, dex
Bunnyboy: Warren peace.
principalpoop: don't wolf your food
Dexter Forng: llan: He's a politician, you should
llanwydd: I thought all politicians were dishonest
RedHeadedTweenger: Send me a link or two... leifthelucky@sbcglobal.net
J. Pianoforte: Rabbiting on, are we?
cease: i thought it was 2 toes thru the floorboard
cease: until i read the script
RedHeadedTweenger: That was for JP, but it applies ;-)
stephenfosterkane: Cat -- you don't remember two-tone shoes??
llanwydd: so are you satisfied with bloomberg, dex?
Bunnyboy: And Mickey has 3 fingers.
RedHeadedTweenger: Hey Merl... How about making a page with multiple chats?

Merlyn: you can make your own rooms too
RedHeadedTweenger: Bye NM...
llanwydd: Amrad just kidnapped me again
stephenfosterkane: Cat -
stephenfosterkane: Maybe you were. Review of Frank Rich's new book in Salon today:
stephenfosterkane: "It is now widely accepted that the Iraq war is one of the greatest foreign policy blunders, if not the greatest, in U.S. history. Some have gone further: The respected Israeli military historian Martin van Creveld argues that it is "the most foolish war since Emperor Augustus in 9 B.C. sent his legions into Germany and lost them." Not a few regard Iraq as spelling the beginning of the end of American dominance in the world."
Dexter Forng: Buenos Knoches Horney
llanwydd: hite hon!
RedHeadedTweenger: I haven't explored the possibilities, Merl. Just thought having it all on one page would be useful.
stephenfosterkane: nite Honey
cease: yes i heard that read on air america today, klok
J. Pianoforte: We got a little confused switching between chats, Merl
principalpoop: night night honey
stephenfosterkane: how fast they've forgotten Vietnam...
RedHeadedTweenger: Worst President of the United States, anyone?

principalpoop: yes, what happened lol
cease: i get them all confused
Bunnyboy: seeya honey
RedHeadedTweenger: $9T debt
cease: i read left wing blogs and websitess and then hear the exact same words on air america
Merlyn: that and the private messages keep things separated pretty well
Dexter Forng: klok: Iraq *much* worse than Vietnam
J. Pianoforte: Keep that vial taped close, Honey
principalpoop: technical difficulties
Bambi: night Honey ... our best to you and Stones, and hope he feels better soon.
Bunnyboy: Red: He ain't here!
RedHeadedTweenger: Will be paid back when we're all on Social Security, no doubt...
llanwydd: worst president? that's a rough one. maybe hoover
Bunnyboy: Count yer blessings.
principalpoop: ditto what bambi said honey
RedHeadedTweenger: 2019?
J. Pianoforte: If we get Social Security...
llanwydd: but the present president is one of the worst
Dexter Forng: llan: Not even close
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- there are not yet 50,000 dead and only 20,000 surviving casualties
RedHeadedTweenger: er, 2019?
RedHeadedTweenger: make that 2029
cease: you mean iraqis, klok?
RedHeadedTweenger: It's still going to be a mess...
Dexter Forng: Klok: It's not *just* the body count...it's the social , aconomic, and political damage at home and the splitting of the International community
cease: oh, romans, of course
RedHeadedTweenger: I had a terrible irache today...
cease: there was no international community in roman times
principalpoop: we if can't torture then we take all the fun out of the gwot
llanwydd: got mail. probably spam but I must check. brb
stephenfosterkane: Cat -- we killed >3 million Vietnamese; have we topped that in Iraq?
RedHeadedTweenger: The Roaming Umpire?
Dexter Forng: No more fun in the gwot?
Bunnyboy: Iraqis, Irqouis, what's the difference.
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- pse read your sentence again. You think our actions in Vietnam brought the world together?
RedHeadedTweenger: And Chinese, Klok.
cease: mao starved 47 million of his own people to death in the early 60s. who can beat that?
Bambi: there was all that same thing during vietnam era as well, but MANY more casualties and another split country thrown in too
llanwydd: probably was spam. unless one of you are ophelia sadler
Bunnyboy: Oops, Iriqouis? Still sic?
RedHeadedTweenger: They both had councils... Bun's wright!
stephenfosterkane: Cat -- internal affairs
J. Pianoforte: Dr. Dick'n'Bush
cease: its interesting to see this piece evolved from the oroignal firesign play
principalpoop: it is the domino theory, if we leave now the commies will take over the world, oops osama
cease: Life in the Day, or KWKWD
RedHeadedTweenger: Yeah, but they make great cheap stuff...
llanwydd: 3 million? that sounds a little high. are you sure?
Dexter Forng: Klok: Have parsed and my point is that alothough we pissed a number of Asian countried off in Vietnam....with Iraq, we have created an outright religious war that who knows when it will calm down
cease: depends on your source
stephenfosterkane: 58,000 americans died in Vietnam. not the wounded, dead, gone. lost.
cease: china claims japan murdered 20 million of its citizens. japan says maybe two
principalpoop: lancet did a demographic analysis, it is millions, without doubt
RedHeadedTweenger: Don't make a karea out of it...
||||||||| It's 10:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Honey Sanchez - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
cease: i didnt know the cold was deadly?
Bunnyboy: Don't let it GET to ya, Lieutenant!
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- not to wax political, but I think this is overlaying current events over a 40-year trend which is also dominating our culture
RedHeadedTweenger: McCain may be on my s-list, but I thank him for standing up to Bush on the torture issue.
J. Pianoforte: I'm beginning to wonder about the cold I've got...
Dexter Forng: Klok: Not following you
principalpoop: I don't want your war machine or ghetto scenes
RedHeadedTweenger: We have not been kind to each other on this planet have we, Cat? :-(
cease: sounds like the flick Why We Fight, kllok
llanwydd: they must have kept that 3 million figure a secret
cease: ike warned against it
RedHeadedTweenger: The remoteness of N Am is the only reason we've not experienced so far.
J. Pianoforte: Hey, who let Burton Cummings into the room?
cease: american woman, get away from me
RedHeadedTweenger: The Twin Towers? Just another day in Serbia...
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- the Muslim Brotherhood goes all the way back to the '50s and growth somewhat parallels the evangelical trend in the US
Bunnyboy: WHY WE FIGHT is back on video, just recently.
Dexter Forng: YOu ain't seen nnnnnnothing yet
llanwydd: I don't think all those peace demonstrations would have been too peaceful if the statistics were common knowledge
RedHeadedTweenger: I've gotten some email on that Bun. Pretty good?
J. Pianoforte: Now that was Bachman, Dex...although Burton did a solo cover
cease: she's come undun
RedHeadedTweenger: Unfortunately, Dex...
cease: it was on tv here recently, bun
cease: very good
stephenfosterkane: at any given point, commentary will hang "anger" or "hatred" or terrorism on some current event, but it's been building all along
principalpoop: I agree with what bush said at the UN, you cannot impose democracy on a country
RedHeadedTweenger: all... must... learn... to... play... the... piano...
llanwydd: I've always wanted to see the "Why We Fight" series
stephenfosterkane: and pretty soon, you have preachers on TV saying we have to assassinate Hugo Chavez
cease: lol poop
Dexter Forng: Klok: I realize that there has long been a militant Islamic layer...thing is now that all those street arabs that never really cared have had the whole thing thrust in their faces and ....well
J. Pianoforte: Well, I guess I'm one up, Tween
Bunnyboy: And all the episodes of the 1960's animated DICK TRACY SHOW arrive next week. Hemlock Holmes, Heap O'Calorie, Joe Jitsu and GoGo Gomez!
RedHeadedTweenger: Certainly not Florida and Ohio, P...
cease: it beats Working, dex
llanwydd: that chavez is a strange one, I must say
Dexter Forng: JP: Yes...I've got that album...really funny
stephenfosterkane: I loved that comment, "The Devil was here yesterday, and today, it still smells of sulfur"
J. Pianoforte: Was that "My Own Way To Rock"?
Bunnyboy: I ended up seeing the Grass Roots, The Turtles, Mickey Dolenz and Peter Noone, live, at the Puyallup Fair, last Saturday.
RedHeadedTweenger: It's going to come from S Am. Somebody commented that if we opened the border the Asians would stampede the Mexicans...
llanwydd: yeah that chavez is very outspoken isn't he?
principalpoop: diebold, we can prove statistically polling lies
RedHeadedTweenger: brb
J. Pianoforte: Grass Roots are coming here this weekend for Route 66 Street Fest
Dexter Forng: JP: Don't remember been a *long* time since I accessed it
llanwydd: I really think there's something wrong with chavez. he doesn't think straight
cease: isnt the 60s over yet?
Dexter Forng: JP: His version of You Ain't Seen is quite pardoic
Dexter Forng: parodic
principalpoop: cnn called chavez a leftist manic
J. Pianoforte: Depends, Cat - YOUR 60s or someone else's
llanwydd: he has a rather unsettling look about him too
Bunnyboy: cat: Held over for the fifth straight decade.
stephenfosterkane: Dex -- all I'm saying is that if we pull out of Iraq (and gosh, we should), it ain't gonna make any of them happy. And if you solve the Palestinian "problem", it'll be something else. it's not about any of these things, it's about the cultural situation and the governments and the economy
J. Pianoforte: Dex, I remember it - slower big band arrangement
cease: all these 60s bands
J. Pianoforte: Cat, it's better than Justin Timberlake!
Bunnyboy: Peter Noone scampered across stage with a walker, during the Turtles set.
RedHeadedTweenger: Of course, as you know, the Norwegians are taking all the jobs in New Foundland lol - I really think we need a new FDR for the Americas.
llanwydd: I honestly don't see any hope for peace in the middle east in our lifetime
J. Pianoforte: Bun, how did Mark & Howie sound (Turtles)?
Bunnyboy: Federal Defense Resolution?
cease: they had a radio show with the firesigns on it
RedHeadedTweenger: I don't know if religion is the opium of the masses, but it surely has been the bain of Humanity...
cease: very funny
stephenfosterkane: poop -- he's kooky, but what has he done to hurt us? vote against us in the UN? In OAS? Doing aid to Bolivia better than the US? Why must he be assassinated?
Bambi: Chavez can say what he wants but...when one does that, especially someone in authority in a country, they should at least try to get the log/beam out of their own eye before trying to get the mote/splinter out of someone else's. ... in other words, he doesn't have much room to talk from what I have read.
Dexter Forng: One of the funniest thing I ever saw was the Turtles opening number when the whole band appeared with white rubber tubes coming out of their mouths a la Peter Frampton
RedHeadedTweenger: Off for a bite...
llanwydd: over the years though, religious fanaticism may fade away and then there is hope of peace
Bunnyboy: JP: They were great! Mark still has that killer range. And they did a great cover of CINAMMON GIRL.
J. Pianoforte: Mark still throwing tambourines in the air?
stephenfosterkane: Chavez is a perfect example of one man, one vote, and it drives the small number of rich people in Venezuela crazy
llanwydd: to answer tween's comment, I see nothing wrong with religion but fanaticism is a different matter
Bunnyboy: Tamborines, yes he were.
J. Pianoforte: Cool, Bun
Bambi: fanaticism regardless of it's form, be it religious, political, whatever ...
J. Pianoforte: Everything in moderation!
Bambi: yes, Johnny
Bunnyboy: My initial exposure to Volman and Kaylan was their Mothers stint, specifically LIVE AT THE FILLMORE EAST and 200 MOTELS.
Dexter Forng: Right JP, *Moderato" is the way
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Bunnyboy: Howie lives up here in Seattle, as I understand.
J. Pianoforte: Bun, they used to drop a bit of "Riders On The Storm" in "You Showed Me."
llanwydd: and what is religion? Some would say it's worship, others will say it's faith. still others will say it is belief in God. those are three different things
cease: i love that line, so you dont go to school
stephenfosterkane: llan -- Sam Harris had a piece in The LA Times on Monday summarizing his upcoming book Letter to a Christian Nation called "Head-in-the-Sand Liberals"
llanwydd: I see nothing wrong with any of those three things
cease: yes bun that was great
J. Pianoforte: llan, I say "spirituality"
Dexter Forng: and some would say that worshipping the belief that faith can create god is a fourth
cease: i read interview with him at truth dig, klok
Bunnyboy: Howard did a lengthy rap about all the groups they really were, until Mark calmed him down, and made him confess: "I'm sorry. I've just been reminded that we WEREN'T the Ojays..."
stephenfosterkane: cat -- took me awhile to realize it was about the guy "playing" mudhead being 'way too old for the part, as actors often are in movies
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and announces "Presenting 'doctec', just granted probation at 11:03 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
J. Pianoforte: Bun, I saw those guys 20 years ago with The Association, Spanky MacFarland and Gary Puckett
llanwydd: Johnny: whatever you call it is fine, but the confusion about the definition is a problem when you want to separate politics from religion
Dexter Forng: Hey Doc
stephenfosterkane: cat -- I read Harris' The End of Faith and he is very convincing about this poison
principalpoop: hi doc
cease: to me it refers to the fact that i was a student and then a teacher for, well a lot more than 30 years
cease: hi doc
Dexter Forng: JP: The farewell tour?
doctec: hi gang - just dropping by for a short while, i'm a bit tired this evening
cease: klok i read Age of Reason in high school. does it need updating?
Bunnyboy: lo dere Doktor!
llanwydd: separation of church and state is a myth and is actually not in the constitution
J. Pianoforte: llan, I agree totally. That's why I dislike the zealots because they force their beliefs into politics
Bambi: hi doc
llanwydd: good to see you doc!
Bunnyboy: doc: I've got orders in for Sonar 6 and Tascam GVI.
stephenfosterkane: HI DT!
cease: how are lili and you, doc?
cease: fine job on the italian piece, doc
Dexter Forng: I say kill 'em all and let CSI sort 'em out
doctec: can you see me through the internet? wow....
J. Pianoforte: We've got the DT!
doctec: thanks cat. lili's hanging in there and i'm helping out as i can
Dexter Forng: KWKW-DT's
Bunnyboy: Transparency, after all these years.
RedHeadedTweenger: Santa, the Establishment Clause...
Merlyn: hi doc
cease: lol
doctec: today italy, tomorrow the w - uh, some other country
J. Pianoforte: There ain't no Establishment Clause
stephenfosterkane: cat -- dunno. All that Deist slant of the US founding fathers, or many of them, is hard to get into now. It seems very 18th century
principalpoop: courage toujours
cease: if i can get online next thrus, i'll be in ottawa. maybe lili can reccomend a restaurant for me
stephenfosterkane: capitol town, Cat -- all gonna be $$ ;-)
cease: which is when it was written. but paine's condemnation of religion is as powerful as ever
doctec: since having a hard drive crash on me a couple of weeks ago, i have been running some of my drives through spinrite (www.grc.com)
RedHeadedTweenger: You can't fool me... lol
llanwydd: never been in ottawa. been to niagara falls twice though
Dexter Forng: I listen to the Spinners on *my* Spinrite
cease: yes i have to get big hard drive for the mac to edit hd
stephenfosterkane: when you need spinrite, there ain't nothing better
cease: theyre supposed to be relaly cheap now
llanwydd: slowly I turn
stephenfosterkane: $80 a bit steep otherwise
J. Pianoforte: Saw 250GB Western for $90 the other day...
RedHeadedTweenger: There is a season... (thyme?)
llanwydd: it's the thyme of the season....
Bunnyboy: Tern tern tern
stephenfosterkane: going price for mid-range drives is the capacity in dollars
J. Pianoforte: parsley...sage...
Dexter Forng: Night Clem
principalpoop: toad away
stephenfosterkane: above 320G right now, it's more like 1/3, as it's near the bleeding edge
ah,clem: thanks, all
principalpoop: night keepers of the root, and thanks again bambi and ahhhhh, clem
doctec: i set my dad up with a 250gb external drive (his internal drive is also 250gb) and acronis true image software, he'll be cloning his boot drive every month so that in case of disaster, he can swap in the clone drive and he'll be up and running
Bambi: thanks Clem :-)
stephenfosterkane: 500 and 750G are not good deals
J. Pianoforte: plague of frogs
RedHeadedTweenger: Grats as always, Jim & Fran...
principalpoop: have a super week :)
llanwydd: that reminds me I used to be a manager in an arabic restaurant and a very popular item was pita bread with thyme, sesame seeds and extra virgin olive oil. the combination is classic
||||||||| "Hey ah,clem!" ... ah,clem turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 11:11 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
J. Pianoforte: Thanks for playing Oohs music, JL
Bambi: thanks all for the great support :-)
stephenfosterkane: big frog problem in Australia -- they ground a bunch up into fertilizer and didn't season long enough...
stephenfosterkane: Wonderful show, Clem!
Dexter Forng: Clem was here for a bit then got thrown out
stephenfosterkane: Great work
Bambi: our pleasure Johnny ... we so often do :-)
stephenfosterkane: so the bottles of liquid frog fertilizer are exploding
doctec: a couple of months ago dealnews had a link for a site that was selling 500gb external drives (with enclosure) for 200 bucks
J. Pianoforte: How about we wrap those frogs in spinach, Kane?
principalpoop: ewwww SFK
Bunnyboy: Command Line Switches. What a great name for a band.
stephenfosterkane: meanwhile, they've decided to try catching all those Asian Carp that infest rivers in the midwest, grind them up and feed to penguins in zoos there
cease: clem and bambi performing their usual service
J. Pianoforte blushing
llanwydd: clem got thrown out? who would do such a thing?
Bambi smiles
principalpoop: M?
Dexter Forng: Bradwhaw
J. Pianoforte: Probably that damn butler working for scale
RedHeadedTweenger: I thought that was Bush in the Rose Garden press conference, Klok LOL
stephenfosterkane: you can't kill 'em that way, JP. You can't even run over them in a car. They recover.
stephenfosterkane: and they're deadly poison
doctec: major or minor scale?
stephenfosterkane: only way to get rid of cane toads is to grind them up
J. Pianoforte: Bufu toads?
Dexter Forng: The Butler tips the scales at 340 pounds...fortune: danger
RedHeadedTweenger: Col. Major Minor
doctec: ms. fortune?
llanwydd: well if he's a pisces he ought to know better. us non-fire signs need to know our place
principalpoop: drop your load at the giant toad
RedHeadedTweenger: Only if they rock, Klok.
Dexter Forng: How strange the change from Colonel Major to Colonel Minor
llanwydd: I'm a lowly earthsign myself
Bambi: I am a firesign, errr, water sign lol
Bunnyboy: I gotta pack up our DVR and ship it to the manufacturer, to have a known defect fixed.
J. Pianoforte: Hey, you forgot my Multiple Identity Stamps!
J. Pianoforte: I'm a Canker
cease: my sign is antellope freeway, exit 1/8th mile
Dexter Forng: I'm A texaco..born under the sign of the flyng red horse
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood announces: "11:15 PM and late as usual, it's Hemlock Stones, just back from London."
principalpoop: canker or wanker?
llanwydd: a crabby watersign eh?
J. Pianoforte: Derry & Toms
Bambi: hemlock!!!
RedHeadedTweenger: Someone, get Bambi a hose!
Bunnyboy: You can't cane toads, even if George says it has to be done.
Bambi: you made it!
stephenfosterkane: WHOOO!
doctec: stonz!
Hemlock Stones: Greetings
principalpoop: ahhh it is stones
RedHeadedTweenger: Hail and well met, UK!
stephenfosterkane: Hello STONES!
Dexter Forng: It's a one armed man named Stones
cease: hemlock!
J. Pianoforte: One handed typing tonight?
Bunnyboy: lo Hemmie
llanwydd: stones! we heard about your accident. get well soon for us okay?
Hemlock Stones: lol Dex
principalpoop: how are you typing? I hope your nose and not your ahh johnson
Bambi: we will be patient ... it's hard to type one handed ... how's the shoulder?
cease: taking your name too seriously, eh?
RedHeadedTweenger: Holding a black crowwe...
Dexter Forng: Hem: Honey told us about your accident
J. Pianoforte: Better the "Stones" than the "Hemlock"
doctec: q for sfk & bambi: what's the best (i.e. safest from a data security standpoint) way to dispose of dead hard drives?
Hemlock Stones: yes sorry, difficult to type so more of a lurker than a speaker
Bunnyboy: Didja all hear about the alleged penis transplant in China?
Dexter Forng: Doc: Grind em up
principalpoop: so you were shot stopping a bank robbery, good work stones
Bambi: Hammer
cease: the last thing they need
RedHeadedTweenger: Mao Tse Dong?
Bambi: lol
Hemlock Stones: limited masonic hand gestures
doctec: dex: with what?
J. Pianoforte: One Hung Low?
Bambi: nuke them from space .... it's the only way to be sure ;-)
Dexter Forng: Doc: One of those machines
stephenfosterkane: First Mayhall, then Hammond in the Jet Car and now...Stones :-(
llanwydd: I broke a wrist when I was seventeen. couldn't write, type or play my guitar for 6 weeks. what a drag. I know how it is
RedHeadedTweenger: The Wal-Mart family is involved here somewhere. Dr. Frankenstein?
doctec: i suppose i could take a pick axe to 'em
principalpoop: soon you will twist again, like we did last summer
Bambi: if you are concerned about security that is
Hemlock Stones: i never knew a collar bone could give such pain
Dexter Forng: llan: Which wrist? did you get acquainted with your other hand?
J. Pianoforte: Perhaps we should slow down - Stones can't get a key in edgewise
stephenfosterkane: DT -- I would expect a good sledge and enough force to deform the platters
doctec: (should that be one word or two?)
Bunnyboy: Some poor sap lost his package (agricultural accident, no doubt), and some medical professionals sewed a cadaver's unit on, as a replacement.
RedHeadedTweenger: Come on baby now...
llanwydd: I was skateboarding down a hill and couldn't stop till I fell off
Bambi: next best would be minimum of using DoD specifications
stephenfosterkane: But I think Steve has a utility to wipe them if still functional
principalpoop: ahh the clavicle, you should not have ignored it all these years
Bambi: for wiping drive
RedHeadedTweenger: All boarding...
stephenfosterkane: Sawing the drive in half and disposing of it in 2 different garbage pickups (and towns) another idea
Hemlock Stones: my shoulder feels like Bush's brain must
Dexter Forng: Doc: Like Mac hines?
doctec: bambi: the drives in question died before they could be wiped
RedHeadedTweenger: LOL Klok - that's what _I_ do with my used drives.
principalpoop: hammer then
J. Pianoforte: Stones, you mean your shoulder is in terminal gridlock?
Bunnyboy: Apparently, they hadn't considered the psychological ramifications ("Huh! He said RAM!"). The man had the docs remove the dead dick, as it was puffy, and his wife couldn't abide it.
principalpoop: see what they look like inside, take pictures lol
Bambi: the platters can be removed if someone was persistent...if security is the issue ... hammer
RedHeadedTweenger: Well, at least Bush doesn't move and talk like Disney animatronics...
Dexter Forng: Tween: Course not, he's not that well trained
doctec: bush: disney animatronic on acid
llanwydd: platters can be removed? why they sing beautifully
principalpoop: probably using the same medicine, any delusions of grandeur stones? god talking to you? anything like that?
RedHeadedTweenger: brb - hungry kit kat
Bambi: acid would work well too if you can get it apart ... lol
stephenfosterkane: the head clearance on a platter is now in microinches, so if you bend all the platters, they're going to have one devil of a time reading them and flattening them back is out of the question
Dexter Forng: Doc: Do you live near a deep body of water?
J. Pianoforte: How about Zylene?
Hemlock Stones: http://www.imgag.com/product/full/ap/3067907/graphic1.swf
Bunnyboy: AP article, at Detroit Free Press, amongst others:
Bunnyboy: http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060920/NEWS07/609200402/1009
doctec: dex: well does the atlantic ocean count?
llanwydd: not even to ten
stephenfosterkane: of course, the NSA probably has electro-optical tech that responds to magnetic fields, so it's not for sure
Dexter Forng: Only to #2, Doc
doctec: glub
Bunnyboy: "Fearless Freep?!? That's muh boy!"
J. Pianoforte: What a maroon...
RedHeadedTweenger: I inherited 1/2 dozen stray cats when I moved into the new apartment. And then there was a litter lol
llanwydd: what a marine
Bambi: broken drives are great as stress relievers .... get out the hammer and beat them to death lol
stephenfosterkane: a good sledge is a nice starting point. the drives usually have a pretty big neodyium magnet in the head motor, if you want to pry it open and see the innards
RedHeadedTweenger: I've eaten a macaroon once or twice ;-)
Bambi: you could always acid treat the media and turn the whole thing into a cool clock too
Bunnyboy: Red: You and Proust.
stephenfosterkane: Bambi -- for electronic components, that's known as "Widlarizing" them, 'cause when NS engineer Bob Widlar found a bad chip or transistor, he would methodically beat it into dust so that it would never mistakenly be used again
RedHeadedTweenger: LOL klok
doctec: i could pry 'em open and take a hammer to the platters - probably wouldn't take too much to render them unreadable
Bunnyboy: Ah, yes, I remember etc......
RedHeadedTweenger: 9 lb?
Bambi: (the innards of the drive make a cool clock)
J. Pianoforte: Proust in his first book wrote about, wrote about...FA LA LA LA...
Bambi: very true doc
doctec: i have one of those handheld reel-to-reel tape degauessers but i imagine it's hard to degausse a drive with one
llanwydd: this noisy beetgreets.com is forcing itself on me repeatedly
stephenfosterkane: DT -- I like the idea of trying to make the platters into bits and disposing of them over time and distance
RedHeadedTweenger: The Platters, that matters...
Dexter Forng: Been watching Python eh JP
J. Pianoforte: Why, whatever gave me away?
Bambi: wouldn't be completely effective since you can't go back in and test that theory on that drive
principalpoop: do you have a nuclear weapon doc? the EMP will destroy the hard drive data
llanwydd: I'm going to go out and come back and see if that helps
stephenfosterkane: DT -- the head motor has a magnet that'll pull your fillings out, (it's a rotary voice coil), but it's at one corner of the drive
stephenfosterkane: we'll still like you llan
RedHeadedTweenger: Well, Doc, the correct use is to remove the boot drive, hold it near...
Dexter Forng: JP: The sheep in dresses eating cheese
RedHeadedTweenger: M-I-C....
Bambi: hurry back llanwydd ;-)
doctec: pp: i'm sure the neighbors wouldn't mind it if i nuked the town just to render a few hard drives unreadable
J. Pianoforte: Those aren't sheep...
stephenfosterkane: DT -- most low-cap recent HDDs only have 2-3 platters
principalpoop: turn around 3 times waving a chicken over head
Bunnyboy: I smell a pizza. Catch ya later!
Merlyn: see ya next week folks
cease: merl, bun
Bunnyboy: nite Merl!
stephenfosterkane: the degausser might work, but you'd need to liberate the platters and get 'em real close
doctec: nite bun
J. Pianoforte: Nite lads!
Dexter Forng: JP: Correct just testing you..they are, as you know, llamas
RedHeadedTweenger: Oh resevoir...
Bambi: enjoy Bunny!
llanwydd: that's better
stephenfosterkane: no need to pull away slowly; ain't ever gonna use 'em again ;-)
Dexter Forng: dwarf llamas
Merlyn turns and heads for the door
principalpoop: ahh one of the tactical nukes, just a few blocks
stephenfosterkane: nite JP
Dexter Forng: Night Bunny
Hemlock Stones: bye Merl
Bambi: night Merlyn
stephenfosterkane: nite M
Bambi: night Johnny
||||||||| Merlyn departs at 11:28 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
cease: jp
stephenfosterkane: nite BB
principalpoop: but 20 stories into the ground
RedHeadedTweenger: You first, Mr. Rumsfeld lol
||||||||| Bunnyboy rushes off, saying "11:28 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
llanwydd: nite merl
llanwydd: nite bb
Dexter Forng: Night and thanks for hosting Merl
J. Pianoforte: I smell a late snack...and then to bed to thwart this damn cold! Talk to you soon!
llanwydd: nite johnny
principalpoop: ahh the bus, I will toodle too
doctec: lili and i are both fading fast here - sorry for the short visit - will see ya next week - have a great trip cat & i'll be ready for more travelling ishikawas updates when you get back
llanwydd: good night john boy
principalpoop: everybody have a super week
Bambi: want one of those cool places 20 stories under the ground lol
||||||||| J. Pianoforte leaves at 11:29 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
Dexter Forng: A pianissamo night JP
stephenfosterkane: nite DT, hi -> Lili
doctec: nytol (zzzzzzzzzzzzz....................
||||||||| Catherwood says "11:29 PM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs principalpoop by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
||||||||| doctec says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, doctec exits at 11:29 PM.
stephenfosterkane: Bambi - I think there's still some silos for sale
Dexter Forng: Wow! What an Exodus
Bambi: nite doc and lili too
stephenfosterkane: 25 ton blast doors
stephenfosterkane: one of those Biblical nights
Bambi: they want too much money for that stuff...sadly
cease: doc
Dexter Forng: well i'm out to park the car, night to whoever and later to the rest
llanwydd: that's alright. there's plenty of us left
cease: ok dex
Bambi: night Dex
stephenfosterkane: nite Dex, I'll be leaving shortly
llanwydd: coming back dex?
Hemlock Stones: take care Dex
||||||||| ruben_fowler waltzes in at 11:30 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
RedHeadedTweenger: Anybody familiar with the 1985 movie Amerika? Kris Kristofferson as President?
stephenfosterkane: Bambi -- it's the A/C bills to keep it dehumidified that'll get you
stephenfosterkane: never seen it Tween
cease: ruben
RedHeadedTweenger: On rye, if you please...
Bambi: yeah, it would be difficult to keep them dehumidified I guess
llanwydd: good evening ruben! welcome to the hospitality shelter
stephenfosterkane: never realized until I got down in some mines how insidiously wet underground is!
cease: that's Tchelter
RedHeadedTweenger: The Un/Soviet take over America. Long TV (ABC?) mini-series. Quite good.
stephenfosterkane: post-car park, I think, llan
Hemlock Stones: and greetings from Trans - Ponders
llanwydd: I had a grandfather who worked in coal mines
stephenfosterkane: big promo for some new TV series about atomic war this season, apparently
ruben_fowler: New to this! Hey! Firesign since 1968!
Bambi: greetings from the reverse Trans - Ponders Stones ;-)
llanwydd: not the one in NJ. My miner grandfather lived in PA
RedHeadedTweenger: Favorite album?
llanwydd: he died of black lung as many miners do
cease: you and the electrician, ruben
stephenfosterkane: and then DHC forgets to order this season's flu virus or stops tracking Avian flu or is so busy pulling off shoes that they don't notice 6 passengers have purple plague...
llanwydd: I should pay attention to the topic of conversation
Bambi: hi ruben_fowler ... first night here in fst chat? and listened since 1968?
stephenfosterkane: "you're doing a heckuva job, Brownie!"
RedHeadedTweenger: Some of the 1st responders to 911 are in the same shape, LL.
llanwydd: how did you find out about firesign chat, ruben?
Bambi: purple plague? is that like blue skies on Mars?
RedHeadedTweenger: You're doing a heckuva job, Condie...
ruben_fowler: Didn't happen to come across it somehow. I was just joined the Firesign Group over at MySpace and some people there were wondering why there were only 70 members. Come on over!
Hemlock Stones: dont know that one Bambi, can you whistle it please
Bambi: Purple plague is a brittle, bright-purple intermetallic compound of aluminium and gold, AuAl2, formed on the contact of these two metals. The process of the growth of the intermetallic layers leads to creation of voids in the metal lattice, which leads to failures of wire bonding in microelectronics.
RedHeadedTweenger: You mean, you're ready to join the other side??
Bambi: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_plague_(intermetallic)
ruben_fowler: This is a little like having bees in your head.
Bambi: they've got us surrounded, they're on all three sides of us ;-)
cease: the bee and the vee being the same
RedHeadedTweenger: Better than in my bonnet, I say!
Hemlock Stones: bees in the head ? luxury !
RedHeadedTweenger: LOL stones
stephenfosterkane: yes, ruben, but there they are!
RedHeadedTweenger: I once had army ands in my pants
Bambi: LOL
RedHeadedTweenger: ants
RedHeadedTweenger: laughing
ruben_fowler: Since I gave up sex for food, I can't even get in my own pants.
stephenfosterkane: ruben -- you just missed the last 'movie' on CNI radio, but next week at 9, there'll be more, or check CNI at 10 on Sat (no chat here, just the IRC and CNI brief FST show)
Hemlock Stones: i used rattlesnakes to rid me of the ants
Hemlock Stones: it was nice to have some company
Bambi: well, you should let the folks at MySpace know about the Thursday Firesign Theatre chat ... it's been going on for years here ... same night, same time. And CNI Radio plays Firesign Theatre to help get the word out about them. http://www.cniradio.com
Bambi: lol, Klok you are wonderful!
ruben_fowler: Absolutely will tell them about the chat. Several people have mentioned the website.
||||||||| Catherwood escorts porgie inside, makes a note of the time (11:39 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Bambi: (Klok is stephenfosterkene tonight)
RedHeadedTweenger: but then, aunt bee made wonderful macaroons...
Bambi: hi porgie
llanwydd: sometimes Phil Austin comes in here to chat with us
stephenfosterkane is confusing ruben (my other nick is klokwkdog)
RedHeadedTweenger: Porgie, you're a white man... tell us what to do!
porgie: brb
llanwydd: hey porge!
cease: hey porge
Bambi: we've talked with Phil austin several times, and at least once with David Ossman too.
porgie: yo
cease: bergmans been here a couple of times
Hemlock Stones: felicitations Porge
stephenfosterkane: ruben -- on CNI you can often hear FST audio not normally available in the state. Just go to the back and tell them 'necessity' sent you...
porgie: is this computer talk or what?
llanwydd: tirebiter had to be a racist to write a script like that didn't he?
ruben_fowler: It would be weirdly cool to talk to Austin. Roller Maidens is one of my faves.
Bambi: I missed when Bergman was here :-(
cease: indeed klok
cease: stick around here long enough and you'll meeet him here, ruben
stephenfosterkane: llan -- depends; it's a spoof of '30s stuff when even having black actors was controversial
cease: arnet they all in the archives, bambi?
llanwydd: believe it or not I just barely missed Ossman
Hemlock Stones: currently TWIT on CNI
porgie: TWIT?
Bambi: Clem on CNI Radio played Roller Maidens on Saturday night, or last week...not sure which.
cease: ive missed austin a few times and ive only been absent from chat a few times since it started
stephenfosterkane: that was the age of Stepin' Fetchit, Jolson's act had been in one of the first talkies only a few years before
Hemlock Stones: This Week in Tech
cease: 95 i think
RedHeadedTweenger: That's funny, we just barely missed Osama...
llanwydd: I always thought it was a 50s spoof
stephenfosterkane: porgie -- http://www.twit.tv/
Bambi: the link that is at the top of the page, the title has a link to listen to the mp3 stream for CNI.
llanwydd: yeah I have the jazz singer on vhs
Bambi: have to remove that real soon but you are more than welcome to get the link from the CNI Radio website too.
cease: ruben, have you heard any firesign that isnt from their albums?
stephenfosterkane: TWiT is nothing to do with FST, but I'm sure they are sympathizers
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dave & Katie close behind, grumbles something about disrupting his 11:44 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the vestibule.
stephenfosterkane: CNI streams tech podcasts most of the week, pausing only now and again to touch a child's head
llanwydd: stepin fetchit didn't do much for black PR
RedHeadedTweenger: One of my faves, LL.
Bambi: hi Dave & Katie
cease: two in one?
Dave & Katie: bet you guys had thought I had dropped off the face of the earth, we, not I, sorry
Bambi CNI
Dave & Katie: wait not on manual refresh brb
stephenfosterkane: he was an interesting character, llan, and those really were terrible times
||||||||| "Hey Dave & Katie!" ... Dave & Katie turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 11:44 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
RedHeadedTweenger: Oh... my... Grid... it's Dave and his new friend.
ruben_fowler: A long time ago, I heard (and taped) many of the Dear Friends shows, which were probably re-broadcast over WYBC in New Haven. I still have the tapes, but don't know if they play now.
stephenfosterkane: read about some of the mixed-race jazz bands touring the south
||||||||| Dave & Katie sneaks in around 11:45 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last month's "unpleasant incident."
Bambi: Clem forgot to remove it so I did.
cease: bambi and ah clem play them on the show they do tonight regularly
RedHeadedTweenger: NASCAR and Indy?
cease: i have a lot of that stuff but they have stuff i dont know at all
Dave & Katie: there we go, now I can read everything, well it's good to be back, I've been really really really really busy with school and working with Katie and things of that nature but I haven't forgotten about this place by any means
llanwydd: welcome back dave. haven't heard from you in a while. If you're the same dave that's been missing
Bambi pats Katie on the head and rubs her neck :-)
cease: oh its That dave
llanwydd: and a hearty welcome to katie as well
stephenfosterkane: ruben -- CNI not only plays Dear Friends, but Mushroom and many other obscurities. Tonight, the first "movie" was "The Big Broadcast of 1976"
RedHeadedTweenger: So the pooch is working out OK?
Bambi: how are you doing Dave? Great to see you both.
Hemlock Stones: Daves not here man "
stephenfosterkane: and they can often be persuaded to play "The Pink Hotel Burns Down" again, and again, and again...
cease: you seem to have doubled, dave
Bambi: LOL that's true Klok ;-)
ruben_fowler: I have the Pink Hotel on tape
stephenfosterkane: we ain't forgot you Dave! Nice to "see" you, Katie! ;-))
RedHeadedTweenger: Exorcism And Your Daily Life...
llanwydd: now another website is forcing itself on me. must go out again and come back in
RedHeadedTweenger: I doubt many people can say that ;-)
ruben_fowler: This Dave guy seems pretty popular
stephenfosterkane: cat -- I believe Katie is Dave's variant of Icy, but she works for a living
Bambi: FST is one of those things that's great to listen to with friends and a chat is a great way to do it.
llanwydd: that's better

Dave & Katie: we're doing god, yes guys it's the same Dave, Katie is my guide dog's name and my companion now, just her and I in this apartment on campus, great little place, you know, we're a new guide dog team so things are working themselves out little by little, it will take 6 months to a year for us to be a good team and even then nothing is perfect
Bambi: has anyone taken a picture of Katie for you yet Dave? Would love to see what she looks like.
RedHeadedTweenger: Only when we make war on innocents, Dave ;-)
stephenfosterkane: Dave -- by graduation, I expect to hear you're both in the Iditerod...
RedHeadedTweenger: In Florida
Dave & Katie: I am exhausted, having just come from a rehearsal for a choir I might be joining, I'm also lying in bed so forgive me if the typing is a little bad
stephenfosterkane: yeah, Cool Runnings - style
RedHeadedTweenger: lol
Bambi: nothing in life is perfect ... but I am sure it will work out for the best if you both think of the other kindly as I am sure you do.
RedHeadedTweenger: The Jamacian bobsled team?
llanwydd: I'm lying on the couch and my typing is as bad as always
stephenfosterkane: Dave -- lucky you! I can't do that!
stephenfosterkane: Tweeny - yep
RedHeadedTweenger: "I feel like a perfect idiot". WC Fields replies, "Listen young man, there's nothing in life that is perfect..."
stephenfosterkane: That's right Dave, work hard -- if you don't measure up, she can replace you
Hemlock Stones: lots of people lie in bed
RedHeadedTweenger: lol Klok
llanwydd: yes ruben, he's popular and we haven't heard from him in a long time
RedHeadedTweenger: and few that stand tall
stephenfosterkane: Hemlock -- I should be, terrible allergy troubles, but nothing to touch smashed collarbone!
ruben_fowler: Hey, I got to run. I'll try to get back next week when I can plan ahead to make the time for it. Great chatting with y'all
stephenfosterkane: 9PM, ruben

llanwydd: so klok, are you saying you are laid up too?
RedHeadedTweenger: Ruff... she can learn Klokdog...
RedHeadedTweenger: It's on the roof!

stephenfosterkane: totally allergy
RedHeadedTweenger: You have the plague, Klokman?
Dave & Katie: yeah she would be the youngest chatter, just over two years old
stephenfosterkane: no energy, 14-16 hours of sleep
RedHeadedTweenger: Sorry to hear it
stephenfosterkane: it's something in the air, Tweeny. My head is in pain, muscles all weak
Hemlock Stones: every time i think of Blair i get really nasty symptoms
llanwydd: I was in the emergency room with severe back pain a few days ago. I was certain it was kidney stones but apparently not
RedHeadedTweenger: Well if that don't suck the scales offa rattlesnake...
cease: good to hear, llan
stephenfosterkane: antihistamine and anti-inflammatory drugs help perfectly, sucking on single aspirin now and then
Bambi: Klok, JL says get well Klok :-)
llanwydd: they gave me hydrocodone for the pain
Bambi: can't imagine why Stones lol
stephenfosterkane: I'm working on it. Lazing off incredibly. Managed to get Ubuntu 6.06.1 in the test partition, though.
Bambi: hydrocodone makes me puke
Bambi: literally
Hemlock Stones: its become a plague over here now Bambi
llanwydd: I hate the taste of aspirin
stephenfosterkane: I think the Real Player for Linux sucks. It seems to use massive resources. I'm going to try forcing it to be mplayer, but even that is a load
RedHeadedTweenger: The wonders of modern science. So why are the pharm cos buying up rights to what they find in the rain forests?
Hemlock Stones: brb
stephenfosterkane: llan -- I rather like it; beats having it stick in my throat and I'm too cheap to buy coated, so it usually does. I just fear for the tooth enamel
Bambi: I don't have any problems on this PIII with the players in Linux ... the only thing I had to do is uninstall Helix before installing Real Player
llanwydd: I know what you mean. Imagine two hydrocodone stuck in your throat for four hours
llanwydd: that happened to me the other night
RedHeadedTweenger: Real has always been unstable on the Mac. Even in OS X Tiger it quits occasionally.
Dexter Forng: It says "i'm Back" right up at the top
Bambi: no fun llanwydd
stephenfosterkane: oh, they patented an Indian home remeday here, then used the international patent agreement to get Indian rights and began suing all the mom-and-pop companies making it in India
llanwydd: well, I have yet another audition on sunday. I'm trying for the role of Creon in "Antigone"
RedHeadedTweenger: Yep. Bad news Klok...
stephenfosterkane: Tweeny -- it's very solid, but it takes me 5 seconds to get a click response in the browser when it's running!
Dexter Forng: Klok: THe jokes on them, the Indians are right here in Umericah
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
RedHeadedTweenger: Best of luck. Only know the play by its name
stephenfosterkane: I'll look into Helix uninstall, Bambi

Bambi: heard that Tween
Hemlock Stones: i developed an stronger aversion to itunes Tween
RedHeadedTweenger: And selling you hot dogs at the quickie mart. Tweeny says, "and the times they are a changin'"...
stephenfosterkane: I think I need to bow out now, too, folks; can't hold a candle to the main invalids, but feel need for zzzzs
llanwydd: thanks much
Bambi: I have an aversion to most new versions of media players ... they are hogs and DRM inflicted nuisances.
Dexter Forng: Klok: YOu can't hold a candle 'cause the vandals took the handle
cease: get well klok
RedHeadedTweenger: It was a resource hog before, now my 450 G3 is pegged to the max when it's running.
RedHeadedTweenger: Can you handle it?

RedHeadedTweenger: I hate to say it, but for my 1999 machine OS 9 sings unless you're doing multimedia. OS X is the only way to go for multimedia on the Mac.
Dexter Forng: Hah! I know where he went
Bambi: that figures Tweeny ... doesn't surprise me one bit when I saw how big the download is
Hemlock Stones: Bambi, i am lookin forward to spyral frog music downloads that play in everything except ipods
RedHeadedTweenger: My handle? Achbar the Magnificant (sorry, been watching the Pink Panther)

llanwydd: In all honesty although there are a lot of better firesign albums I don't think I've heard a funnier one yet
