<Rigfennid> Dia duit, a flp! Cén chaoí a bhfuil tú?
(Hello, flp! How are you?)
<flp> Great so far :-))
<chirho> Hi, flp, how are you tonight?
<chirho> oh, we hit enter at the same time! :)
<chirho> any trouble getting here?
<flp> Nope, came right in :)
<chirho> Good! now we need you to sign up to help
with the IRC-ATHON !
<flp> he he
<chirho> just one hour... please?
<Rigfennid> when is this being planned for?
<chirho> December 6, all 24 hours
<flp> Tonight I copied the inst. for using mIRC. I
want to know how to do all the "fun" things you
guys do with this thing.
<jande> what is the IRC-ATHON?
<chirho> flp, if you help with the I-A, I'll
personally teach you the fun!
<Rigfennid> that's a saturday...
<chirho> yup
<Rigfennid> not sure yet if i have a work-party
that i have to be at...
<chirho> IRC-ATHON...read about it on any BB or in
lesson six!
<Rigfennid> no schedule for next month yet
<chirho> ah, one hour!
<flp> I've had the inst. for getting in, but I've
always been intimidated with the fun stuff :)
<chirho> fun stuff IS fun! :)
<Rigfennid> i'd have to be all the way on the other
side of town
<chirho> borrow a friends puter!
<Rigfennid> as far away from my house north as Long
Beach is south
<flp> By then, I may be able to feel confident
enough to say yes :-0
<Rigfennid> no one nearby... that's a PC user... *g*
<Rigfennid> a lot of my friends are mac ppl
*** Mugs has joined #fian
<Rigfennid> we'll see...
<Rigfennid> i might be available anyway
<Mugs> Hi All
<chirho> welll, Rig, we need folks for the Mac, too!
<flp> hello
<chirho> Hi, Mugs
<flp> brb, have to go tuck in kids :)
<Mugs> How is everyone tonight?
<chirho> k
<chirho> and you?
<Rigfennid> what i'm meant was... *they* use it...
I don't/won't
<flp> ok, I'm back
<Rigfennid> not with a 1500ft pole
<jande> i never thought it was possible - i caught
that awful stuff Rig was complaining about a
week ago. it's nasty stuff, i should of had a
flu shot.
*** Marthe has joined #Fian
<Marthe> Aha!
<Rigfennid> hi there!
<Marthe> I found you all....
<jande> oh, no.
<chirho> Welcome, Marthe, you found us hehehe
<Marthe> Just wanted to make sure I was sending
people to the right server.
<Rigfennid> It appears we have a guest...
<chirho> :) THANK YOU :)
<flp> boy, we're in trouble now......
<Rigfennid> that's a good thing...
<chirho> caught behind the barn again!
<Marthe> You've had a few lost sheep looking for
<Marthe> But now I know where to send them, so I'll
get out of your hair.
<chirho> Thank you for coming by
<chirho> :)
<Marthe> And anything you hear about me is
absolutely not true. :)
*** Marthe has left #Fian
<chirho> hohohoho
<jande> see ya Marthe ;)
<Rigfennid> nuts
<Rigfennid> and i had a funny comment
<flp> :)
<jande> i hope this isn't going to be a reenactment
of the last class!
<chirho> jande, I agree :)
<chirho> guess I should go lamb hunting!
<chirho> thought this week they'd make it on their
own... have sent emails, rigs have sent emails,
rigs bring em here to meet and folks still don't
get here!

<Mugs> Hi bpossum, Red2 and Peg
<possum> Hi Mugs
*** Redcobra has joined #fian
<Peg> flp, the SHIPSLISt message I sent got
bounced back, wrong address.
<chirho> welcome all!
<Redcobra> hi everyone!
* Rigfennid will give it a little while more for
<Mugs> Hi Redcobra
* chirho says we have an offer from a special guest
speaker. :)
<Rigfennid> oh do we now?
<Rigfennid> who? who?
* chirho says do we want to have it here on IIGS?
<Redcobra> do tell...
* chirho says or do we want to go to VU for it?
<Rigfennid> can we trust vu?
<Rigfennid> to not die on us
* chirho says...I'm thinking to invite the FIANNA
<Redcobra> better luck here, dontcha think?
<Rigfennid> well who is it?
<RED2> when?
<Rigfennid> that too
<chirho> and since everybody in the study group is
now officially in Fianna, shouldn't we share the
URL? For the Hideaway?
<Rigfennid> it's your baby... if you want to... go
right ahead
<possum> yes chirho I haven't given my group the
URL yet
<chirho> Think we should have our guest after the
<RED2> how many?
<Redcobra> what URL???
<Peg> The suspense is getting to me...<G>
<chirho> Maybe we should just STRONGLY suggest that
everyone join the FIANNA-L?
<flp> I'm confused, what are we talking about?
<Rigfennid> how can we be sure that everyone has,
or hasn't?
<Redcobra> I subscribe to Fianna-L, and I still
don't get any of this??!!
<chirho> Tell em to, if they miss out it was their
<Rigfennid> with the maiser lists you used to be
able to 'review' and get a list of subscribers
<chirho> Redcobra, I've been working on something
for surnames...
<Rigfennid> i don't think we can do that now
<chirho> Rig, we protected the FIANNA L from that,
but I could ask Cloudy to check...
<Redcobra> ooooh, a secret!!
<Rigfennid> maybe a fresh message to the list about
the Hideaway for the new subscribers is in order?
<possum> Right
<Redcobra> perhaps I accidentally deleted some
really good email from Fianna-L??
<chirho> After I get a form up for adding more
surnames and make the page indexed...at least.
Don't think I can do search yet on geocities...
<chirho> Probably not, Redcobra, Cloudy may not
have it in her welcome message..
<Redcobra> oh
<chirho> Though she was supposed to... :(
<Rigfennid> hmpf
<Redcobra> well, I may have been having one of
those brain-dead kind of days!
<chirho> after all, it's just a URL, right? hehehe
<Rigfennid> but a good one!
<Redcobra> oh you're KILLING me!
<chirho> hehehe!
<chirho> All right, read your FIANNA mail
<Redcobra> Ok!!!
<chirho> or later tonight. brb
<Rigfennid> So how are those paragraphs shaping up
that I'm going to be getting from the rigs...?
<Rigfennid> And I think there will only be a
morning presentation...
<Mugs> Have been giving it some thought but don't
have anything down on paper yet
<jande> mine will be fine once my head clears up
from this crummy cold. i will send what i have,
it seems the majority of my fian has fallen off
the face of the earth!
<Rigfennid> One of my uncles is coming in to spend
Thanksgiving weekend with us...
<Rigfennid> and he's getting in on Wednesday
<Rigfennid> So I think I should be there

about two, but if you need more....

<chirho> check your email first, I just sent
something out. If you didn't get it, then sign
<jande> i don't have a message, chirho and i'm
pretty sure i was on the FIANNA-L
<chirho> Flp, she's trying to save you from me
twisting your arm to get four hours! ;)

<possum> No flp I really am just bragging on you
<chirho> and some servers are slow to put messages
<flp> sure you are....

<Redcobra> Thanks Chirho....got it, haven't read it
yet, but got it!
<RED2> i'm the newest newbie around when it comes
to computers
<possum> You too are doing fine REd2
<Mugs> There is a lot to learn at first but after
awhile it starts to make sense
<RED2> and serious gen.
<Redcobra> Hey Red2, you're way ahead of alot of
folks! Can't get my mom to try this yet
<possum> Just get on IRC and chat
<chirho> RED2, what hour are you going to give?
You are needed! If you want to just stay in the
classroom to help the javachatters to hang in
there, that's VERY important!
<possum> Can learn fancy stuff later
<Redcobra> I can volunteer for an hour (gulp!), but
unsure what time yet.
<Mugs> I'm living proof you can teach an old dog
new tricks :-))
<chirho> hehehe Mugs
<Rigfennid> now where is this -athon thing going to
<RED2> I tried javachat first
<jande> i got it, chirho.
<flp> Go ahead and put me down, just let me think
about a time for a bit
<Mugs> you are on mIRC now Red?
<chirho> The IRC marathon day will be centered on
channel33. After folks get on and off a time or
two with IRC, MaMaT here and turp will greet them
at their respective servers for punch and
cookies. Still have to ask texmom^... and who
<RED2> yup
<chirho> flp, there's a URL with a form to sign up
<Mugs> Much better than the Java chat
<RED2> uh oh! TexMoM?
<flp> okay.
<chirho> tex^mom
<Rigfennid> how do they know where they're supposed
to go next?
<Peggy> I got the message chirho so I must be on
the list.
<possum> Fantastic chirho
<flp> I can usually get suckered into most
anything....as long as it's for the good :)
<chirho> on afternet..tex^mom MaMaT on IIGS
turp on dalnet
<Peggy> What time do you figure you will need the
most help?
<possum> I mean fantastic
<RED2> when my son in law hooked my mirc up he
goofed around and got me thrown off her channel
<chirho> Good, peg
<chirho> Peg, no real idea... maybe evening
<Redcobra> lol red2!!!
<Rigfennid> do they get to just go off on their own
to wherever they want? or is that set up
<Peggy> evening, EST?
<possum> Oh boy
<RED2> that's why i've avoided mirc!
<chirho> RED2, I'll speak to her, tell her you're a
nice kid just needed a little straightening out
! :)))
<possum> that should get everybody using the main
genealogy servers:)
<flp> Is that called the Luck of the Irish? :)

<Mugs> lol
<chirho> aw, there, now, RED2

<RED2> I'm banned from the gen. chat channel
<Peggy> Don't cry, it'll all come out in the wash.
<Peggy> I think I'm banned from a couple of them.
<chirho> Red2, those bans usually only last 30
* Mugs gives RED2 a big warm hug
<Peggy> (Too many questions when I first signed on)
<Rigfennid> too many?
<RED2> me and boots-her son was on her end
<flp> Have you tried sending her a message
explaining the situation....maybe get a
<Rigfennid> there's no such thing?
* possum gives a big hug to RED2
<RED2> don't know how to reach her
<Redcobra> Well, gotta go, spied an email I've been
waiting long time for!
<chirho> email her, Red2
<Rigfennid> later...
<Redcobra> Will check out the duty roster for the
-thon thing
<RED2> where?
*** Redcobra has left #fian
<chirho> her URL is on yellow pages... her email
addy is on her URL...

that day...
<Mugs> I'll see if i have TexMom's email and send
it Red2
<RED2> ok, i'll try

<RED2> i might be available at the beginning and
the end

<Peggy> I probably will pop in and out all day to
see what the traffic flow is.
<Mugs> What about the table of contents for our
study group that Marthe asked for in Lesson 5
<RED2> what are discussing? anything & everything?
<chirho> pick one hour and make it official, so we

benefit from knowing them, as they would you

here, at meeting time :)
<Rigfennid> that's a good question...
<Rigfennid> but after that...?
<chirho> We could continue to meet here Mondays?
and keep working on our projects a bit?
<chirho> Or take the month off?
<SAM> That sounds good to me.
<Mugs> I like that idea Chirho
<chirho> I'm willing to keep working on coding even
when the current batch is up
<chirho> Figure it'll help us get ready and ahead
for the next round! ;)

at least and add to what we've started
<chirho> :)

time is a bit limited

<chirho> Do you have the URL?
<Peg> yes, brb
<Rigfennid> ladies... it's incoming
<Peg> http://home.onestop.net/flfry/start.htm
<chirho> Got it! Thank you :)
<Rigfennid> now a word of caution!
<chirho> Thank you, Peg.
<Rigfennid> remove the 'nxx' at the beginnings of
the lines
<Rigfennid> and make sure the items are all on one
<Rigfennid> if they line break, they don't work
<Peg> Your welcome....okay, Rig, got it.
<Rigfennid> and above all... have fun with them!
<chirho> :)
<chirho> Now, Rig, how do I make an aliais, and how
do I get it to show up?
<Rigfennid> i wanna see you guys playing with this
stuff too
<chirho> I make lotsa pops, can't get alias to do
<Rigfennid> well, look inside the file
<chirho> and
<Rigfennid> for an example
<Peg> Do I just paste them into my popup screen
(once I have doctored them?
<Rigfennid> the editor has little tabs
<chirho> yes
<Rigfennid> paste the first part in the aliases
<chirho> k
<Rigfennid> the second in the popups section
<chirho> ah ha!
<chirho> and then
<Rigfennid> save the files
<chirho> and next, to use?

<Rigfennid> is... /pls
<chirho> got it :)
<Rigfennid> you're making more irc commands,
<Rigfennid> so don't use those words

<Rigfennid> i had an explanation of my name -- /nick
<Rigfennid> stupid
<Rigfennid> it's fixed now
<chirho> hehehe so it changed it!
<Rigfennid> no...
<Rigfennid> it took over
<Rigfennid> It comes from the title of a song by
Napoleon XVI, the same guy who did "They're
Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haa!"
<chirho> right. Understand now
<Rigfennid> and did that instead of changing the
nick when i wanted to
<chirho> hahaha
<Rigfennid> in fact... i discovered the mistake
when i first donned the uniform
<Rigfennid> tried to put it on, and got that
<chirho> This has been a very informative meeting,
thanks to you, RIG
<Rigfennid> Tá fáilte romhat, chirho! (You're
