 * Dormouse2 is channel flipping and went from CNN to a shot of ICBMs
   launching...realized then it was TLC...

Sat Jan 01
<TheProf2000> My god. It just hit me. We now live in the 21st
	      century.....does 20th Century Fox have to change it's
	      name now?

Sat Jan 01
 * Alden started out with a 486 25 sx
<Alden> I'm still convinced they missed the "u" out of that

Sat Jan 01
<TheProf2000> I remmeber a friend told me to go to a place called he said I could look for anything on
	      there. First time on the internet I looked up....Doctor
<TheProf2000> I found DWIA. First website I ever went to
<SteveBreon> TheProf - well technically Yahoo was.
<TheProf2000> I know but search engines don't count. :o)
<TheProf2000> Finally one day in 97 I think I read on DWIA that Steve
	      hung out at a place called #drwhochat so I got this
	      funky thing called Mirc which took me days to figure out
	      and finally came to here.
<TheProf2000> I was unimpressed and left but came back two months
	      later and talked with someone named Nathan and never
	      left. :o)
 * SteveBreon runs after Nathan with knives... its all your fault!

Sat Jan 01
*** DoctorWho99 changes topic to 'Happy 1900!'
<TheProf2000> LOL
<dse2000> noooooo we gotta live through the 20th century againnnnnn
<dse2000> and it'll be twice as bad the 2nd time around
 * TheProf2000 looks forward to the 60s and free love

Sat Jan 01
<Crow2000> This New Year is likely to offer some amazing bargains on
	   some items -- namely things like generators, gas bottles
	   and a myriad of other items that were the subject of
	   emergency buying by millions of people worried about the
	   ramifications of Y2K
<DoctorWho99> LOL
<TheProf2000> Crow: They ran out of porta potties here in KC. people
	      bought porta potties for Y2K.
<Crow2000> good lord
<Crow2000> I can see the ebay auctions now
<Crow2000> for auction one porta john never been used honest
<TheProf2000> Some guy on the radio had a standing offer. If you
	      believed the world would end he would buy your home for
	      10 cents on the dollar. Your car too.

Sat Jan 01
<Whomiga> oops - Just read an article about a woman that has a
	  different type of Y2K problem - a tombstone purchased way
	  back in 1960 or so for the Husband has 19__ engraved in it
	  for her death...but she is still alive...
<Crow2000> oh no
<Crow2000> I hadn't thought of that...
<MegL> that's happened a lot
<MegL> it's a major problem
<TheProf2000> I heard that. The local cemetary has several like that
	      and it will cost $50 to change them to 20__
<MegL> it cost $2000 in some cases to get it fixed
<TheProf2000> $500
<TheProf2000> At least here for the cheap ones
<Whomiga> Only way to do it completely is to replace them
<Crow2000> yeah they have to use some special cement and re chisel it
	   too look right
<TheProf2000> Outliving your tombstone is a good thing
<Crow2000> not if it costs you $500
<Whomiga> Gluing a bronze plate over the numerals, filling them with
	  ground granite and glue or hollowing out the area around
	  them would all leave obvious signs that a change was made,
	  said Barbara Glass of Valley Monument Co.
<Whomiga> ''There's no good way to fix a tombstone,'' she said. ''Once
	  it's in stone, well, it's in stone.''
<TheProf2000> Talk about a bunch of pesamists. First they prebuy their
	      tombstones and then they think they will die before
<Crow2000> I would go out with a hammer and chisel and x out the 19
	   and write 20__ above it
* TheProf2000 marks 21__ on his
<Alden> Prof: LOL!!!!
 * Whomiga marks 30__ on his
<Whomiga> Hey, if we are going to think we are going to live
	  forever...lets get serious about it
 * Alden is a cheapskate and isn't buying a tombstone.
<Alden> my family can do that. ;-)
<Crow2000> I feel the same way alden
<Crow2000> I will be dead so I won't care at that point the living can
	   deal with it
<Crow2000> they can bury me in a pine box in potter's field for all I care
 * DoctorWho99 feels the same way
<Crow2000> hell just wrap me in an old blanket and dump me behind the
	   levy when i die
<DoctorWho99> Cremation.  No fuss no muss >;)

<CrowTRobt> at least kids never killed each other for their beanies
<CrowTRobt> oops I said *it*
<CrowTRobt> I hope I don't get sued
<TheProf> You probably will

<CrowTRobt> arrrrrgh
<TheProf> It's the Ty secret police!

[TheProf SOUND]
<Jondar> Nathan: maybe we should change the Belgian Troops to Ty lawyers?
<TheProf> ROTFL!
<Nathan_Roberts> Jondar: Ty Stormtroopers? >:)
<Jondar> Nathan: heehee :)
<CrowTRobt> why don't they sue Van de Camp's for making Beanie weenies?
<TheProf> I think they spell theirs Beenie
<Jondar> Crow: actually, Van de Camp can sue Ty for them, apparently
<CrowTRobt> no they don't
<CrowTRobt> they spell it beanie weenie
<CrowTRobt> it has beans in it see
<CrowTRobt> pork n BEANS and weenies
<Jondar> are these like baked beans and sausage or something?
<CrowTRobt> sort of
 * Jondar nods
<TheProf> Ty doesn't own the rights to the name Beanie. They tried two
	  years ago to get it but the goverment copyright office
	  turned them down.
<Jondar> at least I know have a general idea of what you're talking about :)
<CrowTRobt> they have little sliced viena sausage in then
<CrowTRobt> whe I think o f bean sand weenies I think of franks and
<TheProf> It's online someplace. The copyright office has a website
	  and you can look up something and see if it is copyrighted
	  or look up a company and see what they have requested.
 * TheProf had Beanie Weenies for dinner tonight by the way.
<TheProf> I really did.
<TheProf> I was worried Ty would sue me for having dinner.
<Jondar> Prof: did you imagine they were Ty lawyers while eating them? :)
<CrowTRobt> hmmm
<CrowTRobt> I only eat those when my wife isn't here
<CrowTRobt> she feels like I should eat only what she calls "real" food
<MegL> she cooks for you
<MegL> feel blessed
<Nathan_Roberts> Depends on what it is she cooks...
<CrowTRobt> viennas and beanie weenies and junk food isn't food in her opinion
 * Jondar doesn't exactly feel blessed when his father cooks... :)
<CrowTRobt> lol
<Jondar> queasy, yes, blessed? no...
<MegL> I wish you could introduce your dad to prepackaged food that
       cooks up in 15 minutes Jason
<TheProf> My wife cooks for me because of the UN resolution banning my cooking.
<TheProf> 15 minutes to cook something? That's way to long.
<Alden> Hehehe.
<Jondar> Meg: that would make things worse, I think... he hates the
	 microwave like it has the plague or something :)
<MegL> I'm talking stuff that's frozen
 * Nathan_Roberts lives on microwave food
<MegL> you bascially heat it up in a skillit
<TheProf> Who defrosts it. I suck those frozen.
<CrowTRobt> I searched for beanie weenies and got beanie baby web sites
<TheProf> Vam Camps should sue!!!
 * Jondar would just like to see Ty try to sue Lycos, Yahoo! or
   altavista for "linking to sites that contain material that's
   infringes Ty copyright" :)

<TheProf> I like that!
<Nathan_Roberts> Though daemoon seems appropriate, given the

<Alden> LOL!
<TheProf> If I ever have my own software company it's going to be

<Shel> i watched this really funny thing on tv last night about "relationships"
<Shel> 2 psychologists were battling it out over who's attracted to whom
<Shel> the guy was saying men are attracted to 18-25 year old girls no
       matter what age the man the is - because is "innate" to be
       attracted to women during the women's prime childbearing years
<Shel> and that women are attracted to older men for protection and wisdom
<Shel> while the lady was saying how wrong this guy was and that it
       depends on how the person was raised is what determines who
       they are attracted to
<Setok> well I'm not sure what kind of men attract women really, but I
	can understand the argument that 18-25 year old girls tend to
	attract men
<Setok> of course that's just a generalization
<NathanR> perhaps a bit of both
<Shel> well, my "general" opinion is that men are attracted to long
       blond haired bimbos with big boobs of any age that at least
       look under 40
<Setok> shel: could be true ;-)
<Setok> shel: but what I think you have to remember is that those
	bimbos attract men in a certain way. I doubt many men would
	picture themselves having any kind of serious relationship
	with Pamela Anderson
<Shel> yes, i agree - they are attracted to, but lust wise, not "love"
<Setok> shel: yeah. I guess it's the same with women aswell? Different
	men for different kinds of attractions? ;-)
<Shel> but i think the same thing applies to women, they seem to be
       attracted to the "bad boys" but marry the "stable" ones
<Setok> yeah
<Setok> quite concerning really - I'm not much of a bad boy and
	certainly not stable!
<NathanR> LOL
*** Shel changes topic to 'Free Relationship Therapy from Dr. Lawson
    and Dr. Wolf - Today on #drwhochat, with Special Guest
    Professor Roberts - Resident "Bad Boy"'
<Shel> so nathan, what makes you "bad boys" so desirable?
<Shel> hehehe
<NathanR> You're asking the wrong guy here >:)
<Setok> heh
<Shel> yeah, and setok and i are really the ones to give advice on
<Shel> i've been single 6 years - i think that would make me anything
       *but* an expert :)
<NathanR> I've been single 21 years.  I'm even /less/ of an expert!
<Setok> we have an outsider's view on things ;-)
<NathanR> We're on the outside looking in.  Actually, we're on the
	  outside banging on the door screaming to be let in.
<Setok> nathan: I think you need an invitation to get in
<Setok> and I don't like the look of that massice security guard on
	the other side of the door, just waiting to be allowed to kick
	us out the minute we try to get in..
<Shel> so nathan, you're saying you willful defiance of normal laws is
       what makes you a "bad boy"?
<Shel> staying out (of bed) all night...  talking to all kinds of
       girls on the (computer) phone every night...
<Shel> see, if you leave out certain details, you life sounds like a "playa"
<Setok> hehe
<Setok> nath's a real womenizer
<NathanR> I wish
<Shel> i bet your best pickup line is "hey, let me get in side your
       (computer) case"
<NathanR> WHAT pickup lines?
<NathanR> I wouldn't know a pickup line if it picked me up and threw
	  me into the lake
 * Setok thinks pickup lines are pathetic
<Shel> oh, so they come to you for your (computer) expertise...  you
       must have quite the reputation
<Shel> oh, but pick up lines work on guys :)
<Setok> they do?
<Setok> well maybe they do..
<Setok> I just think the whole concept is a bit silly.. 
<Shel> lol
<Shel> well, i've found guys who "accidentally" start normal
       conversations are the best "pickup"
<Shel> what's funny is the normal conversation is usually about
       horrible past relationships
<Shel> which is how i ended up going out with the past 3 people i dated
<Setok> well I'm in Nath's league when it comes to those things. Never
	really given them a go..
<Shel> so all you have to do is find a way to be pitiful but not
       pathetic :)
<NathanR> That sholdn't be too hard.  I /am/ pitiful %)
<Setok> I mean if I suddenly decided I'd have to talk to some girl I
	wouldn't know what to say, unless it was someone I
	knew. Talking rubbish is just not me...
<Setok> pitiful? Hm.. wonder how I could manage that ;->
<Shel> aren't you in school?
<NathanR> Who?
<Shel> could always scope out some girl in class and ask her a
       question about the class or something
<Setok> shel: what.. at the CS dept??? :)

<the_quark> Nate - well, what do you want, running a bastardized,
	    years old version of Slackware?  Download something
	    recent, for God's sake.
<NathanR> I want a computer that doesn't reboot itself once a week.
<the_quark> Besides which, without a case, it might be hardware issues.
<NathanR> My thoughts exactly.
<TheProf> I think it's great that your computer is showing some initiative.
<TheProf> I have to admit. I think Nathan is the only person I know
	  who could make a working computer out of two Wheaties boxes,
	  some tin foil, string and an old record player.

<CrowTRobt> Nate do you really think you would be still using 3.11 if

 * Alden doubletakes at the thing Mariah Carey is wearing
<Jefferys> What's she wearing?
<MegL> wearing or isn't wearing?
<MegL> heheh
<Alden> Erm, isn't wearing. ;)
<Jefferys> hehe
<Lyssie> you mean Carey was actually in clothing?
<nathanR> What exactly is she isn't wearing?
<Alden> Looks like she pasted a couple of squares of fabric to the
	sides of her breasts.
<Alden> She was showing about a 6 inch wide strip of cleavage.
 * Alden didn't get his ruler out or anything.
<Jefferys> LOL
 * Jondar showed his mother the pictures of the ducttape clothing
    yesterday... and she seriously asked me if I'd like to try to make
    something similar :)
<nathanR> LOL
<Heptite> Ducttape clothing? Where?
<Heptite> I saw a corset made out of thinnet, or coax, or something once.
<Jondar> Hep:
 * MegL thinks Jason's mom is creative
<Jondar> Meg: Oh yes, she likes sewing, knitting etc... I think she
	 sees it as a challenge :)
 * Jondar looks at the pair of ducttape gloves.... Hmmm... rubber
   kitchen gloves wrapped with duct tape...
 * Jondar looks for one of his old baseball caps...
 * Jondar comes back with old baseball cap... now to find the duct-tape
<Jondar> duct-tape is useful for fixing cricket batting gloves, and
	 cricket bat handles...
<Jondar> and trust me to find the roll in my cricket kit bag...
<nathanR> LOL
<TheProf> Duck Tape. The handyman's secret weapon.
<TheProf> If you ever saw Red Green you would see duck tape in a whole
	  new light.
<Heptite> Hehehe, I've seen it.
<Jondar> Prof: I've already seen Red Green, and I don't want to see it
	 again, thank-you-very-much :/
<TheProf> One show he was going to remove the legs off a table and he
	  has this hammer so he "Could do the job correctly". and you
	  think he's going to pull the nails out but instead he bashes
	  the legs with the hammer breaking them off.
<Jondar> "Are those biker shorts chaffing? Make your own with duct
	 tape. No more chaffing and in taking them off you get an
	 expencive hair wax for free. " -- from the duct tape site,
	 "uses for duct tape"
 * Jondar has half covered this baseball cap with duct tape...
<Jondar> I suppose people would like to see this cap once it's been
	 completely covered in ducttape? :)
<nathanR> Natch
<Alden> Jason: Yes. :)
<Jondar> this is strangely reminding me of my 10th grade final art assignment
<Jondar> the rules of the 10th grade art assignment were to make a
	 sculpture out of an old school desk chair, and the junk we
	 find on the field trip to the "reverse garbage" art store
<Jondar> I made a "virtual reality machine" scupltre, and win 3rd
	 prize in the regional art show :)
<Jondar> duct tape and silver spray paint featured prominently
<Jondar> the virtual reality machine didnt' really work, but I'd found
	 an old keyboard, and old motorbike helmet, and the virtual
	 machine idea was too good to waste
<Jondar> even wired up several LEDs that would flash :)
<nathanR> Sounds like the sort of thing a BBC prop department would
	  come up with >:)_
<Jondar> Nathan: yeah... :)
<Jondar> "As a single guy trying to scrape toget all the money I can,
	 I often find myself accidentally spending the money I've set
	 aside for rent. This month, I've put all my rent money in an
	 envelope and layered it with about twenty strips of Duct Tape
	 all around the outside of the package. I labeled it "RENT, DO
	 NOT SPEND" with a Sharpie marker. I then Duct Taped the whole
	 bundle to the underside of my mattress until rent day. I have

	 contribute to the united way charity drive. His way of

<NathanR> stick... him... to... one... of... the... pillars... ?
<Jondar> "When I was a kid, there was an especially hot week in
	 summer. Too hot to do anything outside except swim. I made a
	 pool out of four lawn chairs, some 2X6 boards, a role of
	 black landscaping plastic. The whole thing was held together
	 with the most useful tool of all, duct tape. My brother and I
	 spent those hot summer days relaxing and playing in our
	 pool. The pool was about 10'X15', and was 3' deep. Very large
	 for a couple of little kids, and a whole lot
<NathanR> Wow
<NathanR> Roll your own pool
<Jondar> yeah, it's given me some scary ideas :)
<NathanR> Do I want to know?
<Jondar> you know how I was commenting earlier that I needed a pool in

<Jondar> Prof: yes, it is.
<Jondar> especially for a 50-over game
<TheProf> It's old folks playing?
<Jondar> no
<Jondar> an over is a group of 6 balls bowled
<TheProf> Jason I'm afraid my cricket is a bit on the dim side. :o)
<Jondar> Prof: that much is obvious >:-)
<TheProf> I'll take you to a baseball game when you get over here and
	  tell you the rules wrong.

Mon Jan 24
<TheProf> Speaking of the games, Sydney should be getting all fired up
	  soon with those right around the corner.
<Jondar> Prof: Sydney has been fired up pretty much from the day it

   this big tourch proudly and setting the curtains on fire with it.

Mon Jan 24
<Jondar> one of the biggest problems at the moment is that they've got
	 three universities trying to work out a way to get the torch
	 to burn underwater
<Jondar> the organisers want the torch to go over the Great Barrier
	 Reef, with a scuba diver :)
<TheProf> Jason: How about just leaving it on dry land? that would be
	  much better than having it go out don't you think?
<Dormouse2> huh??? an underwater torch?
<Jondar> yes, an underwater torch :)
<Morentis> Those crazy Aussies.
<TheProf> I knew we should have let China have the games. 
 * Morentis snickers.
<Dormouse2> and I thought we only set fire to our waters here in the States
<Alden> it could go over the great barrier reef on a boat maybe. :)
<Jondar> the torch is going by foot, by car, by road train (truck), by
	 train, by plane, by Sydney Harbour ferry, by inflatable raft,
	 on horseback...
<Morentis> Yeah, have the runner run in place on a raft.
<Jondar> by boat,
<Morentis> By dingo!
<TheProf> How about good old fashion running with the thing?
<Morentis> By razorback!
<Jondar> by camel
<Dormouse2> a flaming dingo
<Jondar> Prof: most of it is being run :)
<Dormouse2> By roo?
<Morentis> Yes, yes, I can see it... a burning razorback....
<Jondar> but they're also trying to think of unique ways of carrying the torch
<Morentis> Do it like the Greeks did. Naked.
<Jondar> also, some places are so remote, that going by plane is the
	 only practical way of transporting it
<TheProf> How about strapping it to a Kangaroo? I can imagine this
	  tewrrified kangaroo with this flaming torch strapped onto it
	  running away into the outback
<Jondar> the torch is being relayed a 100 days before being lit at the
	 opening ceremony
<Morentis> By angry crocodile.
<Dormouse2> set fire to the Crocodile Hunter and...
<Jondar> it spends 5 days just going around the Sydney metropolitan area :)
<TheProf> The passoff Eric could be nasty....especially if the next
	  runner is one of those little children they like to have run
<TheProf> How about Paul Hogan!?
<Alden> Rolf Harris.
<Morentis> Yes! Everyone loves Paul Hogan! Especially the Aussies!
<TheProf> He could have it on a burning knife.
<Morentis> Or we could just set his head aflame.
<Alden> hehehehe
<TheProf> ROTFL
<Morentis> Fair dinkum!
<TheProf> Now an even better idea would be by surfer to bring it to
	  the Australian shore........oops!!! Whipeout!!!
<Jondar> Prof: they considered that actually, when the torch arrives
	 at Manly Beach, but settled for it going out by livesaver
	 dinghy :)
 * Alden does wonder where that flaming arrow eventually landed that
   one olympics...
<Jondar> Alden: in the cauldron
<Jondar> AFAIK
<NathanR> flaming arrow?
<Alden> I thought it went clear over.
<Jondar> Nathan: Barcelona
<NathanR> ?
<NathanR> That doesn't tell me anything
<TheProf> Jason: Is their any way the torch won't be traveling in
	  Australia? Michael palin hasn't travelled on this many
<Alden> They later showed footage from another angle and the arrow
	flew straight over it.
<Jondar> the cauldron in the Barcelona stadium was lit by a flaming arrow
<Jondar> in 1992
<TheProf> They emptied part of the parking lot as a landing zone for
	  the flaming missile.
<Morentis> Welcome to the Olympics! Incoming!
<Alden> that's it!  you could light it by setting Paul Hogan alight
	and firing him out of a catapault!
<NathanR> LOL
<TheProf> LOL
<Jondar> the only thing they've kept secret is where the main cauldron
	 is going to be in the stadium, and the people that get the
	 honour of lighting the cauldron, and bringing the torch into
	 the stadium
<Morentis> "Micheal J. 'Crocodile' Dundee-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee......"
 * Dormouse2 makes a note to never order "Flaming Hoagies" again...
<Alden> Prof: I hope whoever fired it had good aim, or some people
	woulda gone back to find their cars burned out...
<NathanR> LOL!!
 * TheProf has visions of Paul Hogan being told he would be allowed to
   carry the torch into the stadium. he gets there and they douse him
   with gas and set him on fire. he goes running screaming into the
   stadium where the next runner lights his tourch off of his burning
<NathanR> Muahahahaha!
<Jondar> LOL Prof
<Morentis> Poor Paul Hogan. :)
<TheProf> Paul "I had one good movie" Hogan.
<Jondar> someone writing to a newspaper suggested that the cauldron
	 should be lit by a flaming boomerang :)
<TheProf> LOL!!!
<Dormouse2> "RUN! It's on it's way back!!!"
<Morentis> What if the boomerang came back?
<Jondar> Eric: that was my thought when I read the article :)
<Jondar> they do know the first person to carry the torch on
	 Australian soil. An aboriginal athlete named Nova
	 Perris-Kneebone will run with the torch around Ayers Rock
 * Alden sings: My boomerang won't come back
<TheProf> The Australians are just mad right now because at the last
	  Olympics when they won a gold medal the band played "I come
	  from a land down Under" for the Australian National
	  Anthem". An honest mistake I thought.
<Jondar> Prof: heh
<Jondar> Prof: an Australian won a skiiing event last year, at the
	 award ceremony there was a lot of embarrassment, when the
	 they didn't have a copy of the anthem or an Australian flag
	 to put on the flagpole :)
<NathanR> D'oh!
<Jondar> this was in France or Switzerland, IIRC
<TheProf> I do think the adding of the Crock wrestling and beer
	  drinking as Olympic events at Sydney was a nice touch
	  though. Admit it. you'd watch those over race walking any
 * Jondar fwaps Prof with the Fwapper of Rassilon (TM)
<TheProf> Be honest. Would you rather see crocadile wrestling or a
	  bunch of people trying to walk fast? I can go down to the
	  mall and watch that.
<Jondar> I'd rather see neither of those :)
<Morentis> I'd rather see fast-walking people wrestle crocodiles.
<TheProf> What would really be fun is to watch the beer drinking
	  medalists try to crawl up to the podium for their
	  medals. "Now we see the Russian Gold medalist accdepting his
	  medal. he bows down for the medal to be placed over his head
	  and OH my! That was rather discusting wasn't it!"

	 again in 1996, that the leader of the state government down
	 there proceeded to try to steal every other major national
	 sporting event from other Australian cities
<TheProf> Shoplifting sprting events is a major no no.
<Jondar> exactly
<Dormouse2> How about shoplifting AS a sporting event?
<Jondar> ROTFL Buster
<Jondar> how would points and medals be awarded?
<Jondar> for the most you can steal?
<Jondar> the most creative way of stealing?

<TheProf> And now a word from our lawyers...  If you are under 13,
          please do not send us an e-mail because our lawyers tell us
          we cannot answer your message.
<TheProf> Wonderful. A soap company that hates children.
<TheProf> Mind you some 12 year old read that and e-mailed them "You
	  all a bunch of dweebs."
<MegL> no, a soap company that's been threated to be sued by some parent
<MegL> more likely
<Jondar> actually, it's to do with privacy details, apparently
<MegL> oh yes! that would another reason
 * MegL remembers we've got a law about not allowing kids under a
   certain age to give out info on themselves without parental
<Jondar> apparently you have to get permission to collect personal
	 details from minors, or something. An email addy could be
	 considered personal details
<MegL> Jason, if the site uses a java type email, they might take cookies
<Jondar> Meg: yeah, I know
<TheProf> Guys your having a serious talk about the morals of a
	  webpage on dishwashing soap. Stop it.

<IsraelBeta> Rusty: One line of dialogue I would have to put in the

	     three times...what, did you piss off Satan?"

   Commodore 64... we built a city up one day, saved it, and then the

   still going, and with a sizeable amount of money in the bank >:-)
