Log for group meeting August 28, 1997

SplitLevelHead: SplitLevelHead is gonna wait a few more minutes for stragglers...

Mugs: How many are you expecting SLH

SplitLevelHead: not sure... gonna check the amount of ppl on the dist list right now...

SplitLevelHead: 11 ppl on the list including me...

Mugs: There still could be a few coming then.

SplitLevelHead: possibly...

SplitLevelHead: i feel way too warm... i don't think the air cond is on in this place...

oposum: It's warm here too SLH

Judylca: Seems comfy here. Been picking tomatoes all afternoon and cooking them down. Anything less than that is comfy!*LOL*

robyn1: winter here

Judylca: wow...Australia?

robyn1: yes

SplitLevelHead: what's the temp?

robyn1: about 15

Judylca: "Dog Days' here. worst of summer

oposum: OOh Judy I need to do something with my tomatoes we've bee gone!!

Judylca: yuck...I'll take our summer

robyn1: thats centigrade

SplitLevelHead: it's still not all that warm...

* SplitLevelHead would like to call for ATTENTION now, please...

Judylca: ok

SplitLevelHead: thank you...

Mugs: ok

SplitLevelHead: So, let's hear from the crowd about what you would like to accomplish during this class?

Judylca: Just want to learn whatever I can...kind of vague.

robyn1: Need ideas to build a page

Mugs: I would like to have people to bounce ideas off and hear theirs

oposum: Me tooo Robyn!!!

oposum: I want to do something different.

robyn1: good I'm not alone

SplitLevelHead: ok... i wish we had some more people to work with right now... *g*

Judylca: I want to have a "real" page

SplitLevelHead: define 'real'

oposum: Already Fianna is a great Irish links page.

Judylca: Have had tripod and angelfire but want one with links to family trees

oposum: chirho has a terrific page of links.

SplitLevelHead: Does everyone want to get their own research online?

Judylca: yes

Mugs: Yes i hope to do that at some point

robyn1: don't now how

oposum: So since there is sooo much available I want to contribute something elso

oposum: N0!!

SplitLevelHead: ?????

oposum: I'm concerned about privacy and I'm not sure I want to have dat available to just anyone!!

Judylca: I am going to use gedclean...only dead people will appear

SplitLevelHead: yes, that is correct...

oposum: I would like to put up general data to help other Irish researchers

Mugs: Are you thinking of your living relatives oposum?

oposum: Good idea Judy!!

SplitLevelHead: i use gedclean myself...

Mugs: what is Gedclean?

Judylca: Living are put up as "private" I think...

oposum: I felt a lot of ppl didn't agree with me at the regular class metting the other night..

SplitLevelHead: it just blanks out the dates on living people

Judylca: There's a link on Cyndi's list

oposum: but I prefer not to have data on living family members available

SplitLevelHead: their names even?

oposum: Right

SplitLevelHead: i wish it would do both... (dates and names)

Mugs: I'll have to check that out

Judylca: Remove them from the gedcom you use to create the page

oposum: Just cut it off at grandparents!!

SplitLevelHead: if you use ged2html, i think it does both...

SplitLevelHead: but i like the output of gedpage...

Judylca: I downloaded gedpage but haven't used it yet

oposum: Actually most of my Aunts and Uncles are dead. Parents are younger members of large families

SplitLevelHead: Robyn, you said 'you don't know how'... Well, we can teach you how to do it...

robyn1: thanks

robyn1: I don't even have a page yet

SplitLevelHead: that's what we're here for...

SplitLevelHead: we'll get you started...

Mugs: Neither do I Robyn

robyn1: I'm a bit intimidated by all the coding

Judylca: robyn, me too

* SplitLevelHead says... Since most of us aren't here... I'm going to ask via email about the 'skill-level' question...

SplitLevelHead: can cover everyone that way...

oposum: I don't have a page but I want to have one eventually

robyn1: me too

oposum: that's why I'm taking this class and html

SplitLevelHead: here's a thought...

SplitLevelHead: Do all of you have server space to put pages on?

Judylca: Yes

robyn1: yes I think so

Mugs: No not yet

oposum: Yes ISP

*** echhos has joined #Fian

Mugs: but I can probably get it right away

robyn1: got 2 servers both allow space

oposum: but have a Robotics modem could get space there

echos: hi-am I really here?

Judylca: Hi echos!

SplitLevelHead: yes!

oposum: or geocities

oposum: not that hard to find free space

Mugs: You are here echos

echos: Hi ya'll

robyn1: hi

SplitLevelHead: Fortune City is fun... AND...

oposum: ISP might be best because i would have some support

SplitLevelHead: They've recently opened Ballykissangel... The Irish/Gaelic district...

Judylca: Is that geocities?

echos: For Webpages?

SplitLevelHead: too late for me, as i've already moved in... but someone else could take advantage of it...

SplitLevelHead: it's a similar concept to geo... but i think it's more fun...

SplitLevelHead: and you get 6Meg of space

Judylca: coool

Mugs: How do you apply SLH?

SplitLevelHead: The mayor was recently assassinated...

They're having elections right now...

SplitLevelHead: http://www.fortunecity.com

Mugs: thanks for the addy

Judylca: *LOL*

SplitLevelHead: There's an estate agents section... pick a 'district', then a street that has 'homes available'

SplitLevelHead: then just pick a vacant property...

SplitLevelHead: they've changed the procedure since i joined up...

Judylca: no down payment or closing costs?*LOL*

SplitLevelHead: i think it's a that point that they ask you for a username and password

SplitLevelHead: and then it goes into a thing which auto-generates the first page... which you can later alter...

SplitLevelHead: And coming soon they're adding FTP... (Thank you!)

echos: uploading is simple however thru their manager

SplitLevelHead: my gendata is approx 130 files... it took forever to get it up there, 15 at a time...

SplitLevelHead: Does anyone have any other questions?

Judylca: Not sure I understand ftp. That's trictly downloading isn't it?

echos: I got 10 meg thru my server in Idaho, it took forever also

SplitLevelHead: you can use an ftp program to upload to places you have accts with...

echos: It takes a lot of understanding :(

SplitLevelHead: the progs these days are easy to work with...

Judylca: I better wait then...too much might overload the brain.
echos: your favoite please?

oposum: Well echos that's why we're here. to learn together

SplitLevelHead: umm...

SplitLevelHead: i use what the school puters have installed...

SplitLevelHead: i believe it's ws_ftp

SplitLevelHead: it's worked just fine for now...

SplitLevelHead: ooh! you're double-timing, Mugs! *g*

SplitLevelHead: and you too, Judy...

echos: I have CuteFTP-seems to be a favorite in this area?

SplitLevelHead: but then, so am i...

Judylca: can't help it...saw a neighbor!*LOL*

SplitLevelHead: i've heard that's a good one...

Mugs: Just checking out the classroom

SplitLevelHead: Anything else?

Mugs: I have CuteFTP but never learned to use it. Guess i should

Judylca: Not me...can I go to the beach too? *LOL*

echos: don't understand the ???

Judylca: SLH just invited our classmates to come to the beach...*LOL*

SplitLevelHead: sure...

oposum: brb

SplitLevelHead: i think we might have a special visitor...

echos: ???

robyn1: Hi Judy
SplitLevelHead: hey, you made it
Judylca: finally...
SplitLevelHead: hope we can get a few more tonight...
Judylca: Been TRYING to get my page loaded,

Judylca: Program says it did it but it's not there yet...don't know if that's normal or not
SplitLevelHead: doesn't sound right
Judylca: I e-mailed tech support at the isp...waiting
SplitLevelHead: typical

SplitLevelHead: i see something... *g*
Judylca: IT's THERE!
Judylca: Don'tr click on those surname links tho'...they just go back to MS PUB *LOL*
SplitLevelHead: you might need to do something with that email link... it's hanging wayyyy over to the right
Judylca: so excited I can't type...
Judylca: oops
robyn1: lol
SplitLevelHead: and is the arrow with "My Surnames" supposed to be a link?
SplitLevelHead: oh, there they are
SplitLevelHead: too far on the right
Judylca: centered on mine..no arrow is just arrow
Mugs: I just checked your page Judy. It looks pretty good !!
SplitLevelHead: Scrolling sideways to find it...
Judylca: Thank you!
SplitLevelHead: But other than those 2 little things... VERY NICE!!
Judylca: To find the e-mail?
SplitLevelHead: and the names too...
Judylca: Have a 17" monitor..maybe that's the problem.

Judylca: not my idea...hubby's a gamer
SplitLevelHead: hmm, how to say so it don't sound obnoxious...
Judylca: go ahead...I can take it *LOL*
SplitLevelHead: It's probably a good idea to design for all who might see it...
SplitLevelHead: and they could have a variety of viewing equipment
Judylca: yes, but how do I make it smaller?
SplitLevelHead: sorta 'lowest common denominator'-type thing
Judylca: Thought it would just appear smaller but still complete..
SplitLevelHead: lemme look at it a sec...
Mugs: Robyn are you using Mirc?
SplitLevelHead: how about a 2-column table under that big graphic...
robyn1: yes
SplitLevelHead: the name list in the left col, the links in the right col
Mugs: How come your url catcher doesn't work?

Mugs: Have you tried to set it up?
robyn1: I thought I did
robyn1: Got the set up info off web
SplitLevelHead: there's tables all over the thing...
SplitLevelHead: looks a little convoluted...
Mugs: file options url catcher
Judylca: slh, on my screen, there is almost no vacant space on lest but about 1 1/2 inches on right.
robyn1: yes Mugs: hmm
SplitLevelHead: i'd wanna seriously clean up that file by hand
Judylca: yes, design checker said I was covering but I thought no one could see!*LOL*
SplitLevelHead: on another note... Where'd ya get the grafx from...? Or who made them?

Judylca: slh,*LOL* he's your monster!
SplitLevelHead: i know, i know

Mugs: It said that page no longer existed. However my name was still on the property
SplitLevelHead: did you post to the message boards?
echos: I had that problem Mugs.
SplitLevelHead: Tim SupportDude usually gets right on to the problems
Mugs: I emailed the tech support but haven't heard anything
echos: took me 6 weeks
Mugs: thats a couple of days ago

SplitLevelHead: I wish more of the others were here
Mugs: Nothing too urgent slh
echos: ya-there are abt 100 altogether
echos: Do we have any goals SLH
SplitLevelHead: not that I've been able to figure out
SplitLevelHead: i don't feel that there's any focus for this group
SplitLevelHead: and i don't feel like i'm doing enough
Mugs: Just to learn as much as we can about everything!
echos: maybe a list of good reference material?
echos: Irish research that is?
SplitLevelHead: but we already have that
echos: haven't got there yet I guess
*** opossum has joined #Fian
Mugs: There is all that on the Fianna pages

*** robyn1 has joined #Fian
SplitLevelHead: s'ok
SplitLevelHead: Hi...
SplitLevelHead: This is looking better now...
robyn1: Hi Everyone
Mugs: g'day Robyn
robyn1: Sorry I'm late
echos: Did ya'll put together "Wild Irish Rover" pages
* SplitLevelHead is sorry she wasn't able to email everyone... Been having problems with puter access lately...
SplitLevelHead: that's chirho's page
SplitLevelHead: we had nothing to do with that one
SplitLevelHead: Late is better than not at all, in my book...
opossum: It sounds as if you had a good meeting last week. (I read the log.)
SplitLevelHead: i hope we did...
SplitLevelHead: a little repeat...
SplitLevelHead: Does anyone have anything pressing you wanna ask, discuss, etc...
echos: Yours are great too :-)
robyn1: where is the log? I couldn't find it
opossum: You were all wondering if anything had been accomplished, but I can't imagine anything more productive than looking at each other's sites with different browsers!
echos: are we going to learn how to setup a page with downloadable gedoms. (zipped?)
opossum: On chirho's study group page!
SplitLevelHead: i guess we could...
SplitLevelHead: i haven't actually done that yet...
robyn1: our private page?
SplitLevelHead: i don't want to give out the one with everything (living data)
echos: I ran into some on UK pages and seems real convenient
SplitLevelHead: and i don't think it's real useful to have the crippled one there either
echos: These would be short gedcoms
SplitLevelHead: but i will pass on data to someone who discovers they are related and wants a chunk of it
SplitLevelHead: they just have to ask for it
opossum: You mean after using ged Clean SLH
SplitLevelHead: yeah
SplitLevelHead: i don't think i'd want to pull in something that's missing info
SplitLevelHead: rather get it right from the researcher
Mugs: This is the Fian study group page with the logs dead link: was Study Page
robyn1: thanks
echos: this would be a page to set the gedcome for others thanks
echos: oops
opossum: I am not ready to put my site up yet at all!! However, I am looking up and bookmarking all the neat sites Marthe is tellin us about. Where does she find all that stuff?
SplitLevelHead: good question
SplitLevelHead: how far from ready?
SplitLevelHead: our url section is rather bare
SplitLevelHead: Has anyone looked at the group pages of any of the other groups?
echos: still just 3?
SplitLevelHead: B'lieve so
echos: some
robyn1: I don't have mine ready to put up
opossum: Really far. So far I have a very basic template from my html class saved!!!
robyn1: have looked at some
opossum: I am working on learning to use scanner!!
Mugs: As I said earlier I thought I was getting a page started at fortune city. But am having some problems
SplitLevelHead: i like what some of them have done when displaying the group members
robyn1: I need a scanner
SplitLevelHead: me too
Mugs: Opossum I want to learn to use a scanner too
echos: OP did you get PrintShop Pro
opossum: Soory for the typos guys. I am trying to type too fast! [ed:trying to make em make sense! ;)]
*** LOLO has joined #Fian
echos: I've been trying my wings w/PSP this week
SplitLevelHead: Hello... How can we help you?
SplitLevelHead: You mean the grafx program?
opossum: We have a micro soft scan maker. I am trying to use ULEAD software!
*** LOLO has left #Fian
SplitLevelHead: from Jasc
echos: I think JASC to change graphics for the web
opossum: We have other programming.
SplitLevelHead: I think you mean 'Paint' Shop Pro
opossum: Dh thinks this program does more.
Mugs: Has anyone downloaded paint shop pro?
echos: Yes-of course
echos: I bought it
SplitLevelHead: i've used it before to make the palace grafx
SplitLevelHead: but i can't seem to get it installed on these school puters
SplitLevelHead: it doesn't want to
echos: I need to make my banner with it- challenging
SplitLevelHead: i found a nice site with psp tips
SplitLevelHead: PSP Tips
SplitLevelHead: neat stuff to try
robyn1: url?
echos: thanks
SplitLevelHead: back to the thing about the other group pages for a sec...
SplitLevelHead: i like that they put in their location
SplitLevelHead: and time zone
SplitLevelHead: kinda neat to see the spread out-ness of the group
*** robyn1 has quit IRC (Connection reset by peer)
SplitLevelHead: aww nuts
Mugs: get out the glue
SplitLevelHead: velcro
Mugs: what ever works eh
opossum: brb
echos: SLH_you doing html professionally?
SplitLevelHead: no SplitLevelHead: think i could?
echos: just wondering - sure
SplitLevelHead: there's still lots of things i don't know squat about
echos: I understand real estate & car sales are in demand
SplitLevelHead: i haven't been offered any opportunities...
echos: I've told my gr-dau. to look into it for side jobs
SplitLevelHead: cool beans
opossum: I have a question. How many of us are supposed to be in the small group this term?
SplitLevelHead: meaning?
SplitLevelHead: oh!!
SplitLevelHead: i think my mail disty list is about 11, including me
echos: this group?
SplitLevelHead: I was going to wait until Robyn got back, but... I wanna ask anyway
*** robyn1 has joined #Fian
opossum: Ok. Thanks!
SplitLevelHead: what timing!
robyn1: had trouble getting back
SplitLevelHead: Would anyone be opposed to including location info on the group page, like some other groups have done?
echos: sound good to me
SplitLevelHead: And of course i should ask the disty at large, too
opossum: Not me!!
SplitLevelHead: not even just a city
SplitLevelHead: never mind...
robyn1: what locations are we talking about
Mugs: I think its okay
SplitLevelHead: locations of the group members
opossum: Sometimes it is handy to know genealogists in other parts of the country!!
robyn1: no objection here
echos: I always like exposure for genealogy
SplitLevelHead: right now I'm looking at the page for the 'Family Seekers' group
Mugs: Just an area or a particular time zone?
SplitLevelHead: i think the group list section is quite nice
SplitLevelHead: actually, they list both!
Mugs: what's the url please
SplitLevelHead: [link no longer works]
opossum: I don't know, like to ask ppl to go out and do lookups, but you can ask about availability of state censuses etc.
SplitLevelHead: and a couple others do this, too
Mugs: thanks
robyn1: brb
SplitLevelHead: i won't have time tonight cause i gotta cut out earlier than usual, but tomorrow, i think...
SplitLevelHead: i'll ask the whole group, send them to one or more of these examples
* SplitLevelHead thinks it would be a nice addition
echos: I do too
Mugs: I like that page. Especially the book design
SplitLevelHead: this is good... getting something done... i like that...
echos: Is there an Irish Ring
SplitLevelHead: i think so, but hold your horses on that
echos: like the Scotish Ring
* SplitLevelHead has something in mind that's just for us
echos: Yaaaaa
SplitLevelHead: if i can get the grafx fixed
SplitLevelHead: it still isn't coming together yet
SplitLevelHead: but i HAVE to get it done by the time this class
finishes SplitLevelHead: that's MY goal

* SplitLevelHead will wait a bit more for the late arrivals
echos: thanks SLH
echos: Ireland is hard to research
chirho: When you don't have much to start with and everyone's dead, it's hard to research anywhere...
SplitLevelHead: i still need to actually *get* there
echos: statistics say 55 tracks @ if we look
SplitLevelHead: An bhfuil aon rud r ag dul? (What's new?)
echos: you could fool me
chirho: 55 tracks @ ???? what's that mean?
echos: Chirho-took ten years to get 5 gen for me
SplitLevelHead: really?
echos: you can find 55 records that they have left some where
SplitLevelHead: most of mine are to 6, and some to 7
SplitLevelHead: and that's within the last year & 1/2
echos: really-don't give up
chirho: A cousin on mother's side took the Doll family name back into the 1500's and beyond
SplitLevelHead: i still have a gaping hole with my father's mother, but other than that...
chirho: A cousin on father's side took his dad's side back.
echos: I'm beyound 1200 on several lines
chirho: We can't find anything on our immediate grandparents!
*** JudyLca has joined #Fian
SplitLevelHead: i'm not giving up... i meant 'really' as incredulous
JudyLca: Hi all
SplitLevelHead: H'lo Judy!
echos: Hi Judy
echos: I've learned a lot-having to stretch my self
* SplitLevelHead wonders if this will be all that's coming tonight
chirho: Hi, Judy!
JudyLca: Hi chirho
chirho: Sent an email to Hugh 1/2 an hour ago.... He didn't know time or place..
SplitLevelHead: how could he forget? it's the same thing everytime
SplitLevelHead: no different than the week before that, and the week before that
chirho: Well, move we commence
echos: seconded
SplitLevelHead: All righty then...

SplitLevelHead: Here's what's up for tonight, folks!
SplitLevelHead: 1) URL announcements from those who are ready.
SplitLevelHead: 2) Questions from the floor.
SplitLevelHead: 3) Now you may have your surprise!
SplitLevelHead: Moment to read that...
SplitLevelHead: the first question is almost a moot point given the crowd we have tonight
SplitLevelHead: We already know yours
* chirho did four different trial versions at http://www.geocities.com/fam/fam.html, feel free to take a look at what they do!
echos: here is mine:Here's my new URL
http://homep age.usr.com/s/soulvoice/57617.shtmlthis is new 8:-))
* SplitLevelHead was hoping for a larger crowd tonight, since I'd built up so much suspense
chirho: Still working at getting a better GEDCOM put together for a final version...
SplitLevelHead: keep on cookin'... that's the way...
chirho: echos, can I post that on the page yet?
*** echos has quit IRC (Connection reset by peer)
SplitLevelHead: ummm... that geo url...? shouldn't there be a number and an area?
chirho: yup
SplitLevelHead: and they are...?
chirho: I have geoplus, so it's ~hoseahouse
* chirho did four different trial versions at http://www.geocities.com/~hoseahouse/fam/fam.html, feel free to take a look at what they do!
SplitLevelHead: there it is!
SplitLevelHead: so i guess we can move on to #2, then
SplitLevelHead: Are there any problems you'd like to discuss? Does anyone have any questions they're desperate for an answer to?
chirho: Judy, do you have a URL to post yet?
JudyLca: I have an url...but can't remember it (hangs her head in shame!)
chirho: You had some good ideas going the night we worked on the HTML...
JudyLca: Haven't made any of the needed changes yet anyway. You've seen it
JudyLca: I do have a question
SplitLevelHead: yes?
JudyLca: I'm in IIGS and use the IRC rooms there.
JudyLca: We've set up a chat session for Irish Genealogy
JudyLca: It's going great and we have lots of people and lots of questions
JudyLca: What we don't have is anyone that knows any answers!
chirho: ????? about genealogy? chat/html?
JudyLca: I have been asked to see if there is someone in this group that might be willing to attend and help
chirho: What time? #?
JudyLca: Yes, it's on rootsweb.com
JudyLca: Mondays at 3pm CST
JudyLca: I usually just /list
chirho: I'm a working gal, can't do it
JudyLca: there are seldom more than 2-3 rooms open
JudyLca: Me too, chirho, I make it when I can get home in time but that's not consistent
JudyLca: I don't have any answers anyway
chirho: See if you can invite some folks from some of the other channels...
chirho: there's a list in the Hideaway.
JudyLca: Other channels where?
JudyLca: Oh, ok
chirho: Did you join Fianna-L?
JudyLca: I had never used IRC before IIGS..
JudyLca: Yes, but got unsubscribed the other day..resubbed now
SplitLevelHead: Judy... Could you look at the private message, please?
chirho: You know how to get to the Hideaway?
JudyLca: Thought about posting to the list
chirho: Good idea!
JudyLca: chirho, yes...visited a few times
chirho: check out the IRC page there
chirho: have a similar page in the study group stuff, too...lists places and times for some IRC's

chirho: Way COOL!!!
Cesario: JudyLca - you want Ireland research people in the know?
JudyLca: cesario, yes!
JudyLca: We've had great attendance but don't have answers to the questions
