<possum> :)
<possum> It looks like a nice group

<chirho> Possum, thanks for coming!
<possum> See you next week. Will write.
<chirho> Will post log
<possum> Bye
*** Quits: possum (Leaving)
<Mars7> sorry I don't know aol.
<chirho> Folks, by now, those who'd be here are pretty well here
<chirho> corky may get here, per her note
<chirho> so we have to make a couple of decisions
<chirho> #1, how to help the newbies
<chirho> #2, elections next week
<chirho> #3, when to meet, Sunday at 8 EDT?
<chirho> or another time.
<chirho> End of agenda. Please talk about it!
*** chirho sets mode: +o Mars7
*** chirho sets mode: +o MzPatches
<MzPatches> #3 - Sundays are better for me
<Mars7> I'm agreeable to any day after 8 pm
<chirho> Mars7, even Sunday?
<Mars7> yes
<chirho> :)
<chirho> Dirk2?
<dirk2> Sunday is good - 9:00 EDT (6:00 PDT
<chirho> What about 10 pm EDT, Sunday, because of the cert class? (I forgot!)
<Mars7> ok by me
<MzPatches> too late for me
<Mars7> too late for me too
<chirho> 930?
<chirho> Or Mondays?
<chirho> 8 pm EDT
<Mars7> Monday is fine with me
<dirk2> Even 7:00 PDT ia OK but wouldn't want to keep you Easterners up too late ;->
<chirho> hehehe, dirk2
<MzPatches> yea, Dirk especially when we work early hours ;)
<Mars7> maybe it should be 9 on Mondays so people in PDT can get home from work.
<chirho> :)
<MzPatches> might be able to make a couple Mondays but no guarantee....
<dirk2> Got to be kind to the workers, ( who keep our pension plan in the Red)
<Mars7> yeah, I'm up at 5:30am
<chirho> Tuesday any better? Think Marthe's only having class on Thursdays, if I read it right.
<MzPatches> yes for me
<Mars7> yes for me
<chirho> k, try for Tuesday 9 pm EDT?
<MzPatches> that would work
<Mars7> ok
<dirk2> Ya, me too, but it is to go walhing or swimming (retired 17 yrs)
<chirho> Everyone willing to be "big sibling" to a newbie and meet with them by email and lead them into using IRC?
<chirho> I could just assign folks....?
<MzPatches> I wouldn't be that big a help... I've still got a long way to go on IRC
<Mars7> I'm using Pirch. I'm planning on downloading mIRC this week and trying it out so I won't be much help
<chirho> MP, it's just to get them online and onto IRC, on the server and into the room.
<MzPatches> me too on Pirch, never could get mIRC to work
<chirho> ACK! Invaded! :)
<chirho> Mars, there's all kinds of stuff about mIIRC on the
<MzPatches> I'm lucky I made it here chirho
<chirho> http://www.geocities.com/~fiannag/find.html page
<chirho> MzP, we're glad you did :)
<dirk2> OK 6:00 PM PDT or PDST, which ever is in at the time? I'm using mIRC32
<MzPatches> thanks
<Mars7> I know I just printed it off earlier tonight
<dirk2> On Tuesdays that is ??
<chirho> k, dirk2. Now, are you going to continue to crusie through every class, or will you join us more often!
<Mars7> How many newbies are having trouble?
<chirho> I envy dirk2 his travels!
<chirho> let me go count, mars
<chirho> looks like five
<chirho> one of whom, at least, is on AOL ( a sticky wicket, that)
<chirho> And we can't cheat and use IRC Magic's first lesson this time, it's not public :(
<Mars7> According to the directions the one on AOL needs to install AOL's winsock.dll
<chirho> Can give one to corky and one to possum... that leaves three to be helped...?
<chirho> Mars7, yep.
<chirho> Can see if SAM can help the AOL person, she's on AOL, too
<chirho> leaves two. Any takers?
<chirho> Dirk?
<Mars7> I can't help anyone until I get up and running on mIRC and I might still wind up on Pirch.
<chirho> Mars7, at least you get here :)
<Mars7> if I can't get mIRC to work
<Mars7> I'd to glad to practice with someone.
<chirho> It's like meeting them in the java classroom on school, and going from there into the great wide world of IRC...some get quite frightened by it all
<MzPatches> I work 10+ hours days so I don't think I can help.....
<chirho> MzP, that's okay. Just be here for groups !! :)
<Mars7> I was never able to access the java classroom
<MzPatches> will try chirho
<chirho> Through your browser?
<Mars7> yes
<chirho> Ulp!
*** Joins: Poweruser (john.dobso@202.50.81.2)
*** Quits: Poweruser (Leaving)
<chirho> quick one!
<Mars7> I'm still using windows 3.1
<chirho> oh. ic
<dirk2> I used tex^mom's info put up on 7/5/97 by Melvin Schmidt
<chirho> Do you have the URL? I lost it :(
<chirho> Or is it the same as on the FAQ page?
<dirk2> Now that it is there I'm not sure how I did it :-)
<chirho> At least you're here :)
<chirho> k, there will be a special MOTD to lay all these problems out for everyone and ask for volunteers.
<chirho> Anyone have problems witih lesson 1?
<chirho> with
<Mars7> no
<MzPatches> no
<dirk2> If I still have it on the old notes I can Email it. Cleaned out a lot of that stuff last month
<chirho> Thanks, dirk2
<chirho> looks like all the MUST do's are done :)
<dirk2> I think it was on the FAQ
<chirho> Any other BUSINESS?
<Mars7> Do we post our homework answers directly to the BB
<chirho> Yes, and we should use the BB that Cesario has set up
<Mars7> right
<chirho> Did everyone get the address for that?
<MzPatches> ok
<chirho> I'll post it and make sure it goes out to all.
<chirho> Guess we'll let our BB go :(
<chirho> and stick to theirs
<dirk2> Have got it yet
<chirho> anything else for business?
<Mars7> nothing I can think of
<chirho> :) Time for play!
<chirho> I'll see everyone here next TUESDAY 9PM EDT, right?
<chirho> and bring a friend with you :)
<Mars7> ok
<MzPatches> hopefully :)
<chirho> k, then. Have lots of fun! find lots of cousins!
<chirho> Goodnight

<flipper> now why do I feel this may have been a set up or a run-in
<chirho> We dub you Rig4,
<possum> Rig 4
<chirho> hehehehe
<abbi--> standing ovation!!!
<possum> :)
<echos> :)
<Mars7> :)
<sitka> :)
<corky> consider yourself knighted
*** flipper is now known as Rig4
<chirho> yeah hooray!!! clap clap c lap
<chirho> :)
<sitka> o.k.Rig4...do your thing
<chirho> We need to think about breaking into fians or what tack to take, and what projects
<Rig4> okay, what are this semester's plans for the class?
<chirho> Work must be posted five weeks from tonight
<sitka> what work?
<corky> phew - that's a short time
<chirho> Marthe likes the way we're building the guide
<chirho> 4 weeks to dig, one to write and chirho stays up a couple of nights :)
<echos> Ya for MArthe
<possum> I think with 26 of us we will have to break into at least two Fians won't we?
<Irish> Projects is a hard subject since we are working on oral histories and not necessarily dates, search info etc.
<Rig4> also, we need to consider a night for the newbies to have a session where they can get comfortable with mIRC (after they fugure out how to get on)
<chirho> Marthe said to keep right on with what we're about on the Guide.
<PBN> That would be great
<sitka> what guide?
<possum> Well I am very proud of the newbies that got here tonight
<possum> clap clap
<corky> now that I have straightened out my immediate problem, I can contact some newbies
<chirho> I could send out some email with a list of the projects that aren't finished and the one's that are not even started...
<Irish> Great chirho
<echos> sounds good
<possum> Good idea chirh
<corky> chirho - that would be helpful
<chirho> then set up a "chose it form"
<sitka> I say again........what work....what guide?
<PBN> That would be good Cirrho
<abbi--> sounds good
<possum> See chirho's page sitka
<sitka> ok
<Sunny> sounds good to me
<chirho> sitka, the Fianna site is a guide to doing Irish Genealogy. We try to get all the basics and some of the other stuff
<Rig4> Irish, there is a spot on the guide re: oral history, what about adding to it...or working on the projects we've already been working on....or any topic re: Ireland that you really are interested in.
<chirho> It's not my page, I just code it. My pages are at hosea house
*** Joins: JanL (pettypiece@198.106.229.129)
<possum> Right chirho
<chirho> Welcome, JanL
<chirho> Glad you could make it :)
<possum> However thanks for all the work you do
<Mars7> Hi JanL
<sitka> and good pages they are, chirho
<sitka> hi JanL
<chirho> ahhh, gee : )
<JanL> Hope I'm in the right room, this is the irish group, right?
<Rig4> welcome JanL good to see you made it, I didn't confuse you too much last night :)
<corky> excellent pages - use them in my web info for my local genealogy Irish group
<chirho> Right, JanL
<sitka> chirho...that really looks like a smiley face!
<chirho> JanL, we just elected Flipper to be our leader = rig this term :)
<Rig4> How about we try to have everybody with a topic next week, if not already working on it?
<possum> Good idea
<Mars7> sound good
<Irish> Will do
<corky> chirho will send info on topics & a choose form??
<chirho> Will send email with information and page URL for project sign up.
<sitka> o.k. for us newbies......please explain
<corky> good
<Sunny> I like that idea
<PBN> Greatr Cirrho
<PBN> OOps my spelling
<chirho> sitka, will explain in email :)
<sitka> thank you!
<JanL> Can you give a newbie an idea of what you mean by a topic
<corky> pbn - we don't correct spelling
<possum> brb
<Rig4> chirho, where should we have everybody send thier topics to, or should we just make it next meeting to make it easier (especially on you)
<chirho> Will start to explain now. :) The web site where our group page, FAQ page and all are on is also a guide to doing Irish genealogy. Over 120 pages so far, and growing. We keep working on it, long way to go!
<chirho> We break it down into topics and approach each one with vim and vigor! Try to match interests and such :)
<Rig4> The topic can be anything or any area concerning Ireland that you think you might like to write a report on, or, it could be a how to ....
<chirho> That's what we mean by projects.
<Irish> Can work individually or in groups.
<echos> My topic "Welch & Scotch Irish of PA" Wm Penn's Claimants
<chirho> echos has put up a whole bunch of great pages, and Irish has one up too
<chirho> but most of us add to the guide :)
<corky> since I will be gone for two weeks, is there anything I could get in Ireland that would help us - given I will be on a tour most of the time?
<chirho> (except chirho who types and codes it all and so gets a free ride! :)
<sitka> and how long is this report. free ride? HA :)
<Irish> hardly free ;)
<chirho> sitka, a lot of variation, some folks did all their work as a group and turned in one long labor of love, some turned in a short topic, a lot did inbetween.
<Rig4> Last semester I started a page on just a general info about Ireland, geography, some history, population, I'm thinking this time finishing it with the political part
<Mars7> corky - write a report of your tour and send us pictures!
<chirho> :)
<corky> will you get me a scanner?
<chirho> can make a "tour in Ireland" page!
<sitka> :)
<abbi--> drool:)
<Mars7> :)
<echos> great Idea
<corky> tour of NI only - yes
<chirho> You can get a disk of digitalized pics when you get your pictures developed :)
<PBN> Drool again
<corky> disk of digitized pics???
<chirho> yep, they'll scan them and give you a disk, lots of the bigger places.
<possum> Yes Corky a CD
<echos> al ready scanned
<Rig4> Corky, It would be great to put some photos on....Until I saw a recent PBS show re: Ireland, I didn't know what it looked like or anything...I think there are a lot of curious people
<corky> WOW
<chirho> not necessary to have CD, can get em on a floppy
<PBN> Ireland is Gods own country
<echos> I went several years back -loved it
<corky> will definitely look into it - and try to take in focus pictures
<sitka> that would help:)
<chirho> With your commentary about some of what you saw, and maybe one or two places where you got a chance to do some genealogy..
<corky> picly picky
<corky> glad to do that
<chirho> :)
<Mars7> What places are you planning to visit?
<Rig4> Okay, should we consider sepatating into fians?
<Rig4> or wait until we have topics?
<chirho> Does someone want to try to do some background on the sites Corky will visit? That way we could all be thinking ahead about what she can share :)
<Irish> might want to wait until we have topics - may make dividing easier.
<chirho> Rig, let's wait til we see who wants what.
<possum> Let's wait until we have topics Rig
<PBN> I think it would be better to wait
<sitka> I agree
<corky> Armagh, Glens of Antrim, Giants Causeway, Bushmills, Ulster Folk Park, Beleek, Donagal, Derry and a few days on my own in Dubin
<possum> But I do think we will have to split
<Rig4> that's what I was thinking, but I know it had been mentioned earlier
<possum> Bigger group this time which is great
<sitka> does that mean a different night on mIRC?
<possum> Sitka
<chirho> Rig, I'll post a page with the choices as they come in and you and I can labor over it until it's complete, and then unveil it next week. You'll have to assign for the laggards who don't send in their form! ;)
<possum> that is the prob
<possum> If we break more meetings
<PBN> I hope it can be at the same hour Great for Aussies 11am.
<sitka> do we all get together anyway?
<echos> great for me too
<possum> Hard to get everybody together
<JanL> What form, I think I missed something
<possum> Yes Sitka two meeting
<corky> pbn - you in Australia? What time is it there now? keep getting confused
<chirho> An option I think we might be able to get is to have two or three simultaneous small meetings and then end up in here?
<PBN> 11a. Wed. morning
<chirho> I'll double check with MaMaaT
<sitka> I like that idea
<Rig4> so, chirho, are you going to post on the MOTD a form for thier topics?
<possum> However, we could try meeting together on this night both groups
<corky> thanks pbn
<chirho> Yep'er
<Rig4> k
<possum> chirho
<chirho> ?
<possum> great idea
<chirho> ahhh, gee : )
<possum> I mean about small metings and then meeting in here!!
<chirho> can you tell I just made thatone!
<sitka> yes
<corky> practice makes perfect
<chirho> hehehe
<Rig4> chirho, you be sooooo gooooood :)
<sitka> you do like "hehehe" don't you?
<chirho> Rig, do we have any more business tonight? And are there any things to share about the lesson?
<chirho> hehehe, easy to type... feels like a chuckle :)
<PBN> Good lesson
<sitka> are we talking about lesson two at VU?
<possum> Marthe does do great lessons
<PBN> Yes
<chirho> either one or two
<JanL> I will be in Reno next week, is there a way I can retrieve a log of the meeting?
<chirho> haven't talked about either
<possum> The meetings are logged JanL
<sitka> I need to know that too..will be out of town
<Rig4> Should we try to schedule a time for the newbies? How many still need to learn how to get on mIRC
<chirho> JanL, the logs are posted evry time. The link is the date at the bottom of the group page :)
<possum> chirho posts them to site
<Irish> Haven't read two yet. One was very informative.
<JanL> great
<corky> I wrote a sample letter an it seemed "wimpy" - but didn't want to be forceful and turn anyone off to responding (lesson #2)
<possum> chirho
* chirho says look at http://www.geocities.com/~fiannag/ipig.html at bottom of page :) And don't tell what's on the top of the log page! hohohoho!
<MCW> Sorry but I will also be away and not sure if I will be able to connect from Thursday to Sunday
<PBN> I find you just have to have courage when writing these letters
<Rig4> How many newbies haven't had any mIRC help?
<possum> Sorry Corky I think some genealogogists are tooo forceful
<Mars7> I wrote a rather simple sample letter too.
<possum> turn everybody off
<chirho> got two new newbies today :)
<possum> Nothing wrong with being polite
<corky> definitely don't want to be forceful
*** Quits: MCW (Flying off to Eagel's Nest See ya there!)
<possum> I get a lot of email that are more like demands than requests!!
<Rig4> I worked with JanL last pm b/4 she got bumped :)
<corky> ok, then softer is good?
<JanL> flipper gave me a lot of help last night, until my server bumped me
<chirho> especially demands from Halbert's. DON'T bite, they're scams :(
<possum> I think so corky
<corky> thanks for input
<Irish> I wrote a letter to a cousin of my husband's and got back two inches of info back to the 1600's and a picture!

<possum> Ryan O'brien...
<possum> Sorry I will behave :)
<Rig4> anything to add Chirho, Possum?
<chirho> It seems as if each fian has been able to generate some really good material by individuals, helping one another through email or by meeting here.
<chirho> Suggest you send around to the othrs in your group and pick a rig to report up :)
<possum> Actually I agree with chirho!!
<Rig4> yep

<chirho> Corky, we can work in quite a few, a couple on the county pages and a lot more to describe your trip :)
<corky2> describe trip (as in travellog) or historical description of picture?
<chirho> Make it different... the lady who helped me at such and such a churchyard to find my gggf's stone, and such as well as a bit of scenery
<Rig4> this is true, Possum, if the newbies have any problems, get together and work together....but it's a GREAT feeling when you finally get your own done and find it posted by Chirho.
<chirho> as in travellog
<chirho> witha tad of history on the side :)
<Rig4> Scary at first....then it gets easier

<abbi--> Isn't it wonderful! Does frustration really build character???:)
<chirho> yep, mine's huge!
<corky2> no - it builds brain cells to figure a way around the problem
<Irish> I wholeheartedly agree!
<corky2> input from classes like this realllly help
<corky2> many times someone elses problem has shown me a way to solve mine
<Rig4> Well, I hadn't gotten ANY info on my husband's family, BUCHANAN, then a cousin sent some info....I joined a list, and found a distant cousin and now that tree goes back to Fargallus (possibly Fearghal) the Monarch of Ireland who was born in 678 AD....since then I've been able to go to 367 AD
<corky2> mine dropped from Mars or Jupiter into Ireland around 1850's
<possum> well abbi and Mars7. It looks like we are the group. I don't think we need a small "r" rigfennid do we???
<Irish> Have you cited all your sources Rig4? :)
<chirho> green, green, and greener. Makes me want to say I'm back to Eve and working on Adam :)
<chirho> yep, to report, possum
<possum> We are all returnees and there are only 3 of us.
<corky2> I got the Adam part - it's just missing some until 1850
<chirho> pick one to serve ;)
<chirho> heheeh corky
<possum> Unless one of you wants the job :)
<Rig4> quite a few....but still working on it....luckily the distant cousin already had copies :)
<Mars7> No possum.
<dirk2> I'Ve got Adam's GFather. ;->
<abbi--> No for me, too, possum
<corky2> cousins, you have cousins? We hold family reunions in a phone booth!
