||||||||| Firebroiled leaves to catch the 8:53 AM train to Billville.
||||||||| 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 Mudhead falls out at 8:46 PM.
Mudhead: Well, Im here, and yur there... so there!
||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and intones "Announcing 'ah,clem', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:57 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...

llanddllocked: I guess you don't watch tv in the winter
llanddllocked: Hey Tween!
Hemlock Stones: Tween cannot stand the hot pace of debate

boney: Really great shit, poop
cease: this happens with every document i open today
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dexter Fong close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 9:24 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the sitting room.
Hemlock Stones: greetinggs Mr Fong
llanddllocked: Hey Dex!
boney nods out.
Mudhead: hello Fong
cease: hi dex
principalpoop: the only first page syndrome, you need to defragment your memory cache

Bubba's Brain: how do you make your voice do that?
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Dexter Fong close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 9:25 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the Aviary.

||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:30 PM and late as usual, it's TwoTweensAtOnce, just back from Billville."
principalpoop: i am not responsible and not insane
TwoTweensAtOnce: Oh, how can you be, in two Tweens at once, when there's no side to choose at alllll...
boney: http://www.sito.org/cgi-bin/gridcosm/gridcosm?level=2870
Dexter Fong: Hey Tweeny
principalpoop: dah dah dah dah
Hemlock Stones: wb tween
llanddllocked: Hey Tween!

||||||||| Catherwood walks up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'LiliLamont', just granted probation at 9:30 PM", then leaves hurriedly.

LiliLamont: Not too bad, cease. I've been battling with the VA on geting my reconstruction completed. I know this makes me soundlike the bride of Frankenstein (and I watched Young Frankenstein a few nights ago), but it's been almost 2 and 1/2 years and I want to finish this.
Hemlock Stones: i have been called worse, cease
cease: indeed, lili
principalpoop: neighhhhh

Dexter Fong: Lili: Phil has not been here lately
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and intones "Presenting 'doctec', just granted probation at 9:36 PM", then leaves hurriedly.

Dexter Fong: Hey doc
Merlyn: hey doc
Honey : hello doc

Honey : hi ah, clem

Honey : me n poop could be your tv stars
principalpoop: after all these years, the name IBM can still make me chuckle
Honey : hi tween
llanddllocked: then Groucho says something like "Boston and Philadelphia manage to be in two places at once"
LiliLamont: How and where isBambi?
Hemlock Stones: hey, dont encourage him Honey
doctec: internal use only - this space intentionally left blank
GeminiTween: Hey Honey :-)
principalpoop: tween has been twinned
Mudhead: hiya doctec

GeminiTween: lol LL
doctec: 25th anniversary of blade runner is upon us - ny times reports there's gonna be a 'real' director's cut released
ah,clem: was it a monty python film, Doc?
principalpoop: the corner pub for you old chum? the rose and rose pot?
Bubba's Brain: floating bubbles of liquor, doc.
GeminiTween: Why I do declare, these Chinese Mint Julips have a rather funny taste...
ah,clem: end of the world resort maybe?
GeminiTween: Hard to believe it's been 25 years. Yikes!
Honey : it's the absinthe of mint, tween
doctec: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/30/movies/30kapl.html (no subscription required!)
LiliLamont: So, at the risk of monopolizing the conversation, I've been trying to get an appointment with a plastic surgeon to finish my reconstruction. You wouldn't believe what a major hassle it has been. The guy in charge came up with numerous different reasons why he thought it was risky surgery, and it was all bullshit. Go figure.
Hemlock Stones: thats quite a long time for celibacy Tween
GeminiTween: leaden absinthe?
Bubba's Brain: bout time they stopped requiring subscription.
doctec: it's like they don't want her to go through with it
LiliLamont: But enough abouttthat.
Mudhead: I'd recommend UConn in Farmington Lili
llanddllocked: I find it interesting that absinthe is illegal but grain alcohol is sold in liquor stores
doctec: even though she's done her research on the matter
ah,clem: sheep looking good?
doctec: and has not found any compelling reason why this surgery should not go forward
Hemlock Stones: i feel the same way about marijuana llan
cease: i went to a bar that had an absinthe drink last night.
Dexter Fong: Doc and Lili: Well if the give Iraqui vets the run around, what can you expect
GeminiTween: Well, cosmetics are good but health is better ;-)
ah,clem: watered down grain these days in most states
cease: instead i had something called a Buziness Brace, invented in in the 18802
doctec: good point dex
LiliLamont: But, Mud, I don't have private insurance any more. That's why I'm doing this through the VA.
GeminiTween: Baaaaaaa, humbug
cease: 1880s
Honey : yeah absinthe of liquor in it, cat
principalpoop: inspiration is 90% perservance or something like that
ah,clem: no more 190 without a permit here
Mudhead: they may accept it up there, they took my Medicaid
cease: i'll try the absinthe the next time i'm there.
GeminiTween: Been reading about the late 1800's recently. Lot's of social movements I never knew anything about
llanddllocked: inspiration is 90 proof
Honey : gee invented waaaaaaaaaaaay in the future!!!!!!!!!!!
cease: if it made touloose latrrec think he was a good painter, it might make me think i'm a good playwrite
Bubba's Brain: absinthe makes the heart grow fodder....
doctec: tween: yeah, they didn't have the internet back then
principalpoop: oneida had the right idea, no marrige and the old folks got first pick on partners
Honey giggles
GeminiTween: Clem, the album sounds really thin
ah,clem: invention is 1% inspiration, and 99% persperation
Hemlock Stones: we might not have the net much longer with dual pricing on the horizon doc
doctec: 10% / 90% actually
GeminiTween: Maybe my EQ, but it lacks bass compared to the usual
LiliLamont: Tween, this isn't cosmetic. This is aboutsymmetry and lack of back pain because of it. Plus, there is a federal and a state law that mandates that this be covered. Since I can't afford a grand a month for theinsurance, I have to rely on the VA.
cease: you mean dex gets all the women?
llanddllocked: I've heard that one clem
Bubba's Brain: remind me not to drink an invention cocktail.
ah,clem: ok, I fatten up
llanddllocked: wasn't it edison who said it?
principalpoop: perseverance is in there somewhere, that is was recommending to lili
GeminiTween: Yeah, that was one of them P
doctec: pump up the volume
Honey : ok bubba dont drink an invention cocktail
doctec: all things yield in the face of persistence
GeminiTween: Oops, sorry for my ignorance Ms. Lili
LiliLamont: Doc, clue me in later. The messages have scrolled past.
cease: doc, i was gonna post new bit interview to youtube but computer seems to be infected so i better not, eh?
Honey : and perspiration, doc
principalpoop: am I spelling that wrong? what is the difference between persistence and perseverance?
GeminiTween: Be careful what you want to yeild ;-)
llanddllocked: give it an antibiotic, cat
doctec: hey, i use a deodorant!
Bubba's Brain: Catherwood, give me a cockatil, but don't put any invention in it.
||||||||| Catherwood gives Bubba's Brain a cockatil but don't put any invention in it.
principalpoop: i will keep asking, until I get satisfaction
GeminiTween: Catherwood, pour everyone a Mother of Invention
||||||||| Catherwood gets everyone a mother of invention.
Honey : i had a cockatil named habibi once, bubba
ah,clem: give it 2 minutes, Tween, but is not the best sample, but only one I had handy
cease: the norton virus scan that i run every day didnt pick it up though
Hemlock Stones: that wont work with AOL poop
doctec: persistance trumps perseverance in my humble opinion - but her what do i know?
cease: adaware found 20 "problems" and theoretically got rid of them
llanddllocked: necessity is the mother of vinegar
Bubba's Brain: Habibi, wasn't he on Johnny Quest?
principalpoop: nothing works with AOL stones, it is the anomoly maker

cease: is it a download from windows, msn?
ah,clem: studio monitors nice and warm now, if that too much, let me know
doctec: hmm, sounds like cat's computer is suffering from delayed borgerigmus
llanddllocked: maybe cat has ordered it in a restaurant
llanddllocked: or had it served at home
Hemlock Stones: noo, you can get it free at Major Geeks and it makes my machine run really well
doctec: symptoms are simiar to shortness of pants.
cease: we got an email i thought was japanese a couple of days ago. turned out it wasnt. may have been bug
Dexter Fong: and running stoll

Hemlock Stones: doc, i turned off windows firewall and use Zone Alarm and AVG they seem to work well together

doctec: sql server 2005 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_SQL_Server
Dexter Fong: Dave: YOu're really into drugs these days, eh?
Dave & Katie: visual studio, scoffs!
Bubba's Brain: Doc -- I started trying to learn C# earlier this year, but stalled. MSDN has a pretty good online series of lessons -- C# soup to nuts. Links to all sessions at the presenters blog http://blogs.msdn.com/wsteele/
ah,clem: more of a b flat guy myself
principalpoop: i like the rockford files theme song
ah,clem: and jumpin jack flash
doctec: bubba: c# is very much tied to visual studio and dot net
doctec: ya kinda need all three at once to do anything of any significance with the language
Bubba's Brain: yes... the commands are easy enough... but you need to know the library of includes to do anything.
doctec: the c# language came out of borland delphi - the guy who spearheaded delphi was hired by mircosoft, c# is what he came up with
boney comes alive
doctec: it's all tied to visual studio and the dot net framework
boney is awake, alive, alert, enthusiastic

GeminiTween: COBOL's easy to understand but too verbose
llanddllocked: I made blackened steak for dinner
boney: catherwood, hand the victrola a kick
||||||||| Catherwood gets the victrola a kick.
llanddllocked: I think I blackened my lungs more than the steak

||||||||| "10:11 PM? 10:11 PM!!" says Catherwood, "cat should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as cat enters and sits on the couch.

Merlyn: cease and desist cat
doctec: mac 'n' cheese?
cat : the dell is frozen
principalpoop: hi donk
Bubba's Brain: Glad you're learning C#, doc. I have a friend who advised me C# developers generally get about twice VB deelopers. Not to mention the lack of jobs I've seen asking for a Perl developer...
Dexter Fong: Hi don k
GeminiTween: Hey Don
Honey : hi donk
cat : will reboot it
boney: http://www.sgvlug.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=90&Itemid=49

Dexter Fong: Catherwood send me away for a drink
||||||||| Catherwood sends Dexter Fong away for a drink.
GeminiTween: Any good places to swim in NM?
GeminiTween: Love to spend a weekend in Taos sometime
Merlyn: landlocked, isn't it?
boney: The webpage will tell you where the Slashdot 10th anniversary parties will be, and how to throw one of your own
doctec: bubba: yeah, while perl is still in demand, programmers conversant in visual studio and its various development lingos (c#, vb, sql server) seem to be in high demand
principalpoop: tahihi
llanddllocked: Yes, Lake Roswell
Dave & Katie: does anyone happen to remember what album "tomorrow is such a long time" comes off of? I have all of Dylan's stuff or so i thought, but it only shows up on the greatest hits Vol. 2 collection, just thought I'd throw it out there
Honey : lol lland
boney: You have to be logged on to Slashdot to sign up for a party
llanddllocked: I've only heard it on Greatest Hits Vol II
llanddllocked: I think it is not available on any other album
boney: doctec, do you know this stuff already?
GeminiTween: Ah yes. New Mexican Tahiti, a protectorate of Baja California
boney: am I informing the informed?
GeminiTween: The doll has dropped...
llanddllocked: what I like so much about BD's GH V II is the number of singles and rarities you can't get on other albums
Donk: it may have been a b side of a single, never on an album before the greatest hits?
GeminiTween: Lake Roswell rofl
Honey : more like a projectorate, tween
doctec: when i google "tomorrow is such a long time" (with the quotes intact) i get a lot of rod stewart hits
Bubba's Brain: llan, your exhuberance of "L"s reminds me of a local ambulance chaser -- Bill Lloyd. Only name I've seen with 4 Ls in a row.
GeminiTween: Hello, my name is Tweeny and I'm an X-Files fan
boney: doctec?
Honey stuffs tween in "the boxcar"
Bubba's Brain: Hi Tweeny.
doctec: boney?
llanddllocked: I think it's actually called "Tomorrow is a Long Time"
Merlyn: Billlloyd
GeminiTween: A Fan of Michael Martin Murphey, who resides there I do believe Honey
llanddllocked: It's an early live song
GeminiTween: Not the boxcar!!!
Bubba's Brain: DO you keep callin "wildfire?"
GeminiTween: Hey Bubba
doctec: i do not think i am in an area where there'd be a large enough grouping of tech heads that would want to host a slashdot party
GeminiTween: Worked with him several times in the 80's
Honey : you might be suprised, doc
boney: http://slashdot.org/anniversary.pl
principalpoop: it is nice to be had
llanddllocked: I don't know how to do the slashdot. I've got a bad back anyway
doctec: and the nature of (and energy demands of) my relatively new day job makes it difficult to justify the time and effort required to either throw or attend a slashdot party
GeminiTween: Dave Hoffner on live keys doing Wildfire. Did justice to the tune. There's a link to Dr. Dave Hoffner on my website
doctec: but i'll look into it and if it dovetails with the other demands on my energy and schedule, i'll pursue it
Dave & Katie: thanks guys, that helps
boney: llanddllocked, suppose they had an orgy, and no one came?
GeminiTween: biab
