[18:20]* KK (~kkurtz@OWIRCN-b7b1e86b.va.comcast.net) has joined #deryni_destinations
[18:20]<the_Bee> Hi KK!
[18:20]<jemler> hi KK!
[18:20]<KK> Hello, folks.
[18:21]<KK> Watching the Olympic recaps.
[18:21]<KK> I was sucked into them almost every evening for the past two weeks.
[18:21]<jemler> enough snow outside without watching it on tv!
[18:21]<the_Bee> do you have a favorite event?
[18:22]<KK> Love the various skating events, got caught up in the speed skating and snow-boarding.
[18:22]<jojo> Howdy KK!  my favorite is the ice skating.
[18:22]<KK> I missed most of the performance last night, but what I saw was neat.
[18:22]<the_Bee> I haven't been watching except for clips on the news.
[18:23]<KK> I like the winter games better than the summer--though I do like gymnastics.
[18:23]<jemler> Not enough bikinis in the winter games! :)
[18:23]<the_Bee> when do/did you meet with Sony?
[18:24]<KK> I don't meet, but Alex meets with them in about 2 weeks.  They keep pushing it back.
[18:24]<the_Bee> sounds frustrating.
[18:24]<KK> Yep.  I try to just put it out of mind.
[18:24]<jemler> do you get the rights to the screenplay?
[18:25]<KK> I have rights to the characters and the storyline, but I haven't written the script--so I guess the answer is no.
[18:26]<jojo> I hope you were able to get some more on the new book.
[18:27]<KK> I've come up with some fascinating plot permutations.  But the actual writing is going slowly, as I work out plot twists.
[18:28]<jojo> juicy!
[18:28]<jemler> Bee and I were talking last week about whether Barrett ever told Jehana he was on the Council.
[18:29]<the_Bee> or if he even told her the Council existed.
[18:31]<KK> That's way in the future, and I'm not writing in that time period right now.  so the answer is, I don't know.
[18:32]<jemler> ahh, the beginning of wisdom! Good answer!
[18:33]<jojo> Bynw, if you're listening, how is the repair of the website coming along?
[18:35]<KK> I guess he isn't listening.  Anybody know what the problem is?
[18:36]<jojo> it seems a server crashed or was taken offline, but the bulk of the files were retained.  However, I don't know about getting those files, or putting them on new server(s).
[18:37]<the_Bee> The company that runs the site went out of business without warning.  Bynw has most of the stuff, and he's trying to reinstall it.
[18:37]<KK> Ah.
[18:37]<jojo> thanks, Bee.
[18:38]<the_Bee> or something like that
[18:41]<the_Bee> Melantha is begging for cheese.
[18:42]<the_Bee> and Mickey is looking hopeful too.
[18:43]<jojo> I thought about Lady Mel this week... an online training course for the esoteric topic of Cisco Quality of Service was being a bit dull
[18:43]<jojo> But the presenter's cat was meowing close by, wanting attention.
[18:43]<jemler> Feed cheese to Mickey and Mickey to Melantha! :)
[18:44]<jojo> Sending virtual fine cheeses to you all...
[18:44]<the_Bee> Mickey's human said he could have pet-grass p90444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444444

[18:46]<jojo> I thought it was Bee's cat joining the chat....
[18:47]<the_Bee> I sometimes share melantha's pet grass pellets with Mickey, but nothing else.  unles he helps himself to her food.
[18:47]<the_Bee> ioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioioio
[18:48]<the_Bee> I have to chase her off before I can send.
[18:48]<jojo> Give her a nice rub from me...
[18:49]<the_Bee> Oh, Iay, give me my chair, and she says, rub my tummy.
[18:50]<the_Bee> How'd I mix up THAT sentence?
[18:51]<the_Bee> ['''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''er
[18:52]<the_Bee> so how are your fur-people behaving, KK?
[18:53]<jemler> My father's secretary was visibly distraut one morning when she arrived
[18:53]<jemler> at the office and explained that her children's parrot had escaped from his
[18:53]<jemler> cage and flown out an open window. Of all the dangers the tame bird faced
[18:53]<jemler> outdoors alone, she seemed most concerned about what would happen if the bird
[18:53]<jemler> started talking.
[18:53]<jemler> Confused, my father asked what the parrot could say.
[18:53]<jemler> "well," she explained, "he mostly says, 'Here, kitty, kitty'..."

[18:53]<jemler> hi fudgebob
[18:53]<the_Bee> Are they housebound with the snow?
[18:53]<the_Bee> Hi fudebob
[18:53]<the_Bee> and Fudgebob
[18:53]<jojo> Howdy, Fudgebob
[18:53]<KK> Not too badly. Booker is still doing his obedience classes, but it's slow going.  There's a bit bull mastiff "puppy" who was using him as a chew toy last week, when all Booker wanted was to play.  But he's learning.
[18:54]<KK> Our snow is starting to melt, but we may get some more in the next day or two.  We topped all-time records, at over 50 inches.
[18:55]<the_Bee> That storm missed New England, but a later one hit northern N.E. pretty bad.
[18:56]<the_Bee> People are claiming your blizzard refutes global warming, KK
[18:56]<jemler> even my new wheelchair gets stuck in deep snow, someone has to push me out.
[18:56]<the_Bee> Does the snow short out the motor?
[18:57]<jemler> no. it just gets too deep to drive thru.
[18:57]<jemler> i'd like to get the new ReWalk device. that would be good.
[18:57]<the_Bee> what's that?
[18:57]<jojo> It looks really cool!
[18:58]<fudgebob> good morning all :)
[18:58]<jemler> it's a device created by a guy in Israel. It has leg braces with motors that do the walking for you. I would be able to stand up, walk, go up/down stairs. For only $40,000!
[18:59]<the_Bee> yeah.  "only." :}
[18:59]<jemler> lol
[18:59]<the_Bee> coluld you drive your own car with hand controls?
[19:00]<jemler> i don't know. the steering wheel would have to tilt up so i could move my legs under it. maybe. i'll have to get a drivers license though.
[19:01]<the_Bee> yup, that is a technicality.
[19:02]<jemler> i never needed a license before. i either walked or rode a motor scooter.
[19:02]<jojo> I saw the device on TV recently.
[19:02]<the_Bee> don't motor scooters require licenses?
[19:03]<jemler> motorcycle operators.
[19:03]<jemler> it expired two months after my aneurysm.
[19:03]<the_Bee> How many years ago now?
[19:04]<jemler> 12 years ago.
[19:04]<jojo> I am very pleased that it didn't blunt your wit, Jemler!
[19:05]<jemler> In my family if you weren't smart-mouthed or conceited, you were sick or adopted!
[19:06]<jemler> were all pretty much like that! :)
[19:07]<jojo> Folks, I need to get going for supper... Hope you all have a warmer week, and some sign of spring comes to you soon!
[19:08]<jemler> nite jojo
[19:08]<the_Bee> same to you, jojo.  Have a good week.
[19:08]* jojo sneaks away to grab some grub.
[19:08]<KK> I think I need to signs off as well. There's some salmon thawing inthe kitchen, that needs to be steamed.
[19:09]<jemler> got to it before the cats do! :)
[19:09]<the_Bee> sounds yummy.  Salmon and bluefish are the reason god makes oceans and rivers.
[19:09]<jemler> you forgot shrimp!
[19:10]<the_Bee> oh yes, them too.
[19:10]<the_Bee> and scallops.
[19:11]<jemler> never tried them. i like clams too
[19:11]<KK> Yep, had shrimp last night, at the local Japanese Hibachi place--yum!
[19:11]<KK> Anyway, take care, you guys and stay warm.  See you next week.
[19:11]<jemler> i can have some on friday. the local moose lodge serves them on fridays
[19:11]<jemler> my mother works there.
[19:11]* KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[19:11]<the_Bee> nighters, KK.  have a good week.
[19:11]<jemler> nite kk
[19:11]* KK has quit (Quit: )
