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 16, 2012 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood leads Merlyn in through the front door at 8:58 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Merlyn: Nino is back, and he's beautiful
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 16, 2012 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and intones "Presenting 'cease', just granted probation at 9:02 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Merlyn: hey cat
cease: hi merl
Merlyn: Nino is working again
cease: i wasnt here last week. the ipad works much better in theory than practice
Merlyn: You're CANADIAN!?!?
cease: i was in the states
Merlyn: do you type on the screen or with an attached keyboard?
cease: on the ipad? that's a screen thing
Merlyn: but I assume it has some ports you can plug stuff into, like a keyboard. screen keyboards suck
cease: my hotel only had computer plug in, no wifi and the bar at the next door hotel where i hung out only had wifi working for 2 days
cease: and both van and vegas airports had wifi which everyone else used but not me. i should have asked someone
Merlyn: Bartender, bring me a wifi
Merlyn: or a waifu
cease: a friend just moved into my house and his computer is on wifi. when i plugged him into my system, his computer didnt recognize it. must be a setting
Merlyn: oh, news from last week
||||||||| Outside, the 9:07 PM bus from Hellmouth pulls away, leaving Principalpoop coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
cease: or a wafu (japanese style) burger.
Merlyn: we should get 3 of the 4 guys at convergence
Principalpoop: eveneng

Principalpoop: i recall programming where a was not A
Merlyn: the anti-Objective C
||||||||| Catherwood leads Dexter Fong in through the front door at 9:11 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Principalpoop: fortran, basic, old school
Dexter Fong: Evening Dear Friends
Principalpoop: speaking of old school, here come the fong
Merlyn: oddly, most older languages ignore case, newer ones tend not to
Merlyn: Fong ignores case, puts books directly on table
Dexter Fong: Merlyn: You've brought Nino back from the dead! Well done =)
Principalpoop: get those books off the billiard table, I was lining up a shot
cease: stuggling with my tv
Dexter Fong: Poop: One foot on the floor, Dude!
Merlyn: yes, but HTML is supposed to be case-insensitive, so Javascript should have worked
cease: it heard me flatter the vegas screen so now its jealous
Merlyn: just like kissing in old movies, one foot on the floor
Principalpoop: where are you? other than here cat?
Merlyn: one in the grave
cease: at least this one lets me see my images. they're now appearing on my blog
Principalpoop: and the other on a banana peel

Dexter Fong: I'll build a stairway to paradise

Dexter Fong: WB Cat, how was your Vegas trip
cease: was hoping to log in from there, but no luck
Merlyn: cat, can you explain why people put pictures and movies of food up on the net?
Principalpoop: i was there earlier today or yesterday, i wonder if you are going to go postal if they serve another overcooked salmon...

Dexter Fong: Yes cold at night but surprisingly pleasant in the winter most times
cease: was thast the weather when you were there?
cease: F gave me a light vest that was very warm, useful at night
Dexter Fong: Yes Cat although it never rained or threatened to
Dexter Fong: Warmish and sunny day/chilly and dark night
cease: my first long walk was from venetian to excalibur and legs were really sore
Dexter Fong: The distances between Casinos is surprisingly long
cease: my last night i walked from excalibur to Wynn and back, though stopped a couple of times. Legs have seriously strengthened
Dexter Fong: Ex to Wynn is a long walk
Principalpoop: the place is flat right? not like san francisco
Dexter Fong: I'll take X to block
cease: i wanted a good appetite for bartolotta.
Dexter Fong: Poop: Yeah place is flat but extremely wide streets mean lots of walk overs which can mean climbing stairs
Principalpoop: ouch
Merlyn: My wife's blood sugar always gets out of whack on vacations because we suddenly walk a lot more
cease: that is what i rely on to get apetite for all this food: much walking
Dexter Fong: But then a lot of cross overs also have escalators and elevators
Principalpoop: for the old money

Dexter Fong: Or My Night with Flora
Principalpoop: like a car deodorizers?
Dexter Fong: Rich Corinthian Leather Ummmmmmm
Principalpoop: sorry, pine does not sound good at all, I am sure it was done tastefully
Dexter Fong: Poop: Never had anything with pignolas or Pine nuts in it?
Principalpoop: no, they add that to salads at mcdonalds yet?
cease: an adult drink. with the best crab cake i've ever eaten, and then a catfish sloppy joe with way too much bbq sauce
Dexter Fong: A basic ingredient for Pesto though walnuts have also been used
cease: i just noticed i didnt post the vid to that blogpost. will do that later. great drink, crab
Dexter Fong: Shouda ordered the catfish neat joe
Principalpoop: pesto confuses me, condiment or sauce or what? strange pickle relish thingie
Principalpoop: i like crab cakes, but oh so rich
Dexter Fong: Poop: No pickle relish: Olive Oil, Basil (the greenish part), garlic, and the aformention Pignolas or pine nuts
cease: a little fish store near here has great crab cakes, but the ones in vegas were extraordinary
Dexter Fong: Can be used with pasta, fish, et al
Principalpoop: yes, a thick thing like relish, is it a condiment or sauce?
cease: neat joe: lol
Dexter Fong: More a sauce, but a nice crusty piece of bread can be rewarded by a deep dipping
cease: it was hard to fin dthe catfish. it kept being bread instead
Principalpoop: i like a nice fruity wine with crab
Dexter Fong: Yes, the southern preference for a thick batter
Dexter Fong: Poop: I'll bet you do, Sailor

Dexter Fong: See any shows?
Principalpoop: batter on the sloppy joe, wait

Dexter Fong: Solid sangria....cut me off a slice o' that, Jack
Principalpoop: fancy jello shots

Dexter Fong: Tool rush in baby ...if you know what I mean
Dexter Fong: So these balls were under terrific pressurethen, Cat?
Principalpoop: sangria balls, we fell in love, with sangria balls

Merlyn: Must be a Scientology plot

Dexter Fong: Doesn't matter any more, they've been outed

||||||||| Catherwood escorts Dexter Fong inside, makes a note of the time (10:29 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
N_Korean_Ripoff_of_a_Tweeny: I just use the browser inc/dec size

Dexter Fong: They'll be interrupting our tv viewing with constant EMERGENCY Warming Announcements

N_Korean_Ripoff_of_a_Tweeny: The world does seem to be one big emergency these days
N_Korean_Ripoff_of_a_Tweeny: WWIII maybe in Iran

N_Korean_Ripoff_of_a_Tweeny: lol
N_Korean_Ripoff_of_a_Tweeny: A weapon banned by treaty?
Dexter Fong: The present reward for identification has now fallen to $@.14
cease: i've had a hundred or so gastronomicly involved dishes. it succeeds more often than it fails
cease: when the idea and the skill is there, it's often a palate pleaser
cease: but the right bowl of sapporo ichiban ramen with some vegies can taste as fine as anything in the land of fine dining
