1:00 am
VolleymomDee

I hate this *#! computer and server; ready to pitch it out the window; only prob is I don't want to buy a computer with vista
1:00 am
nDanLia

just realized - at 143, just snuck up
1:00 am

go dan go
1:01 am
VolleymomDee

wtg ndan
1:01 am
jillibus

you're not alone in that, dee! Amazing how Vista is loathed
1:01 am
westford

another poor attempt at humor
1:02 am
westford

dee do you have cable or dsl?
1:02 am
nDanLia

;) thought of that west, but a bit tired
1:02 am
VolleymomDee

everyone I know who has bought it is livid; cable, but we are in the middle of nowhere...
1:02 am
jillibus

west, lovely fairy!
1:02 am
joshuavorbis

what are the complaints about vista?
1:03 am
westford

we were going to get the internet set up for our granddaughter she just got her first apt were all set to get her dsl and were told they don't have it in her area
1:04 am
VolleymomDee

difficult to navigate; cannot manipulate manually programs and software; graphics are cumbersome and don't work as advertised... few things I have heard so far
1:04 am
westford

jilli I looked at 40 pages of google images to get her so I'm keeping her for a few days lol
1:04 am
VolleymomDee

happened to us, too west... we live 1.5 miles too far north to even have the dsl option
1:04 am
jillibus

don't blame you, west!
1:05 am
westford

years ago I had a poster of the Apple Fairy she was beautiful but I couldn't find her
1:05 am
westford

we did find out something good though now you don't have to have a phone line to get dsl they just put it in so many have cell phones now
1:06 am
nDanLia

what's pt total?
1:06 am
jillibus

also incompatiblity with older programs, printers, etc, I hear
1:06 am
westford

708
1:07 am
VolleymomDee

ditto that jili
1:08 am
VolleymomDee

supp none of my older software will function... and I hate the thot of changing and paying for all new software...
1:09 am
nDanLia

is that 1708 west?
1:09 am
Hugabugs

I feel exactly the same way Dee
1:09 am
westford

oh sorry was reading my point total
1:10 am
westford

where would I find it?
1:10 am
jillibus

re Vista -- my late mother used to say "new and improved means rotten"
1:10 am
VolleymomDee

:) my current computer cost almost 4k when I bought it 8 years ago (incl software, printer, scanner, etc)...who wants to spend that kind of money now? Okay, sorry for the cavetching, I'll hush for now.
1:10 am
joshuavorbis

i was a windows owner until about 2002
1:10 am
westford

surely they must be working on getting vista to work better
1:10 am
joshuavorbis

i switched then and even though i have gripes about apple, i am still very pleased
1:11 am
westford

pleased here too josh
1:11 am
jillibus

but you can't get Expert with a mac
1:12 am
westford

true true
1:12 am
joshuavorbis

i've heard about this 'expert'
1:12 am
jillibus

or can you if you run windows on it?
1:12 am
joshuavorbis

i would like to see it in action
1:12 am
Hugabugs

I love XP... can't imagine using my pc without it
1:12 am
westford

there is a program but I dont' have it yet
1:12 am
nDanLia

top of line dee? prices always drop w/in 6 'nn'onths; still use an early '90s syste'nn' for a nu'nn'ber of apps new ones 'nn'ess up [including reading/copying files fro'nn' "unreadable" disks]
1:12 am
jillibus

but then you'd be stuck with bldy Vista now...no escape!
1:12 am
VolleymomDee

my prob josh is most of the clients I work with use Microsoft Professional Suite or Microsoft Small Business; Can your apple use Word, Exel, Access, Publisher?
1:12 am
westford

I have XP on my Mac
1:13 am
VolleymomDee

I agree Hug.
1:13 am
joshuavorbis

hey, nDanLia - is your m key broken or something?
1:13 am
VolleymomDee

and share those files
1:13 am
joshuavorbis

yes, volleymomdee- i have all those programs installed right now and use them all the time
1:13 am
jillibus

I love XP too -- it were'nt broke so why did they fix it?
1:13 am
joshuavorbis

word most of all
1:14 am
joshuavorbis

sometimes i have issues converting my word files to an older pc, but definitely not so much the other way around
1:14 am
westford

my husband uses a Dell for work and doesn't like it
1:14 am
VolleymomDee

hmmm interesting... I honestly may have to investigate that
1:14 am
jillibus

well, if you have XP on your mac, can't you get Expert?
1:14 am
nDanLia

yes, owner has warranty paper; wait for dec return
1:14 am
VolleymomDee

what about picture programs for photos?
1:14 am
VolleymomDee

why not west?
1:14 am
westford

it's an older version I won't get rid of it
1:14 am
westford

outstanding dee
1:15 am
joshuavorbis

dee, the photo programs are one of the reasons that the vast majority of graphics companies use macs exclusively
1:15 am
VolleymomDee

is there anything your mac won't do that you could do before?
1:15 am
nDanLia

goal is to get all to buy new every few years to earn $$$; developers often told to li'nn'it features & put in a newer release
1:15 am
westford

as kiwi would say it's easy peezy
1:16 am
VolleymomDee

that is what I thought... they are known for graphics, pics, publishing, etc, Is that right?
1:16 am
joshuavorbis

not that i know of - the only thing with most people is the price and the learning curve when you first get one
1:16 am
joshuavorbis

though learning your way around doesn't take as long as you might think
1:16 am
VolleymomDee

so true ndan
1:16 am
westford

but they're so user friendly
1:16 am
VolleymomDee

what was cost, if you don't mind me asking?
1:16 am
jillibus

I wish someone would answer my question about using Expert on a mac running windows
1:17 am
joshuavorbis

it varies a lot, depending on what you want out of your computer
1:17 am
westford

jilli I know there is a program but I don't have it yet
1:17 am
joshuavorbis

you can spend 500 bucks if you've got a monitor/keyboard/whatever laying around already, or you can drop 20k on a super duper power mac for video editing of feature films
1:17 am
westford

you can get a fully loaded mac ibook for under 1K
1:18 am
Hugabugs

time for me to head to bed. G'nite all

1:20 am
westford

my mother even has one of ours from 1984
1:20 am
joshuavorbis

good job, ndan
1:21 am
VolleymomDee

wow... didn't realize cost was so varied... I would never edit feature films... but I need one that handles all microsoft office programs well; will edit, manipulate, and print photos; will design greeting cards with large graphics and print them; scanner; large monitor; recipe software that would be compatible with old; good email; address book, etc... graphics and sound cards for gaming...
1:21 am
westford

that's not on the internet though
1:21 am
VolleymomDee

ok... shutting up again
1:21 am
joshuavorbis

gaming might be an issue, dee - but all the other things you list, apple definitely has, and they definitely work well
1:23 am
VolleymomDee

ty for input; I'll have to start doing comparative research on both systems
1:23 am
nDanLia

ty
1:23 am

how do you get words that have m's in them, ndan?
1:23 am

volleymomDee, if you want to play games, Windows is your only real choice
1:23 am
joshuavorbis

sorry if others have asked before
1:23 am

if you visit an apple store and tell them what you need they could help

1:25 am
westford

josh is the pc to mac program called bootleg or something?
1:26 am
VolleymomDee

bet that is frustrating for you nDan
1:26 am
joshuavorbis

what do you mean by pc to mac program?
1:26 am
nDanLia

i used to code in 1s and 0s, type fast, not bad
1:26 am
westford

being able to run things like babble expert on a mac
1:27 am
westford

and others as well
1:27 am
joshuavorbis

you mean running windows from within mac osx?
1:27 am
westford

I think so I'm not very ept
1:27 am
joshuavorbis

boot camp i think
1:27 am
jillibus

josh, I did, and shamelessly looked it up in morewords (devils are the icon thme today so I thought I'd be one)
1:27 am
joshuavorbis

though i have also heard of parallels and i forget what the program used to be called
1:27 am
westford

I got the boot part right
1:28 am
joshuavorbis

i think the difference is, with boot camp you choose when you turn on the computer to boot in windows or mac
1:28 am
westford

I see
1:29 am
flosey

back again - just received a phone call from daughter - she just completed a ProRide course - riding (my much hated vehicle) motorcycle
1:29 am
joshuavorbis

and with parallels, you can open up a program while mac osx is running, and have windows within it, though it doesn't work as well since both systems are running at the same time
1:29 am
nDanLia

et 6/27 sounds like a ja'nn'aican saying it; has to do w/ word origins
1:29 am
westford

wow flosey it's good she took a course though

1:48 am
VolleymomDee

wonder why they named it 7 instead of something else
1:49 am
joshuavorbis

back for a second before bed - microsoft is doing that to copy blatantly apple's way of doing things before they got to os "10" or "X"
1:50 am
joshuavorbis

or at least that is my theory :)
1:50 am
VolleymomDee

interesting
1:50 am

They're not glamorous but I hope they do the trick. BTW, you heard all the fuss about the mountain race in Cumbria? My bro-in-law organised that! He's very angry about the 'media circus' and says there was no danger
4:24 am

My sis said it was only cancelled cos the Portaloos floated away!
4:24 am

LOL. it looked perfectly well organised to me

Hi hurshy - you're babbling early?!

4:27 am

They all have a check list which has to be ticked off before they can set out. That's my sister's job.

I wish the Beeb would just sack Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand so everyone will stop talking about it
4:34 am
hydra

Oh, so do I. What idiots! They must have such colossal egos to think they can get away with treating people like that in the name of 'humour'
4:35 am
Atalante

I *know*
4:35 am
Atalante

Russell Brand you expect idiocy from, but Jonathan Ross ....
4:36 am
hydra

I think Brand set him off. He wanted to be a 'naughty boy' like his friend.
4:37 am

Like when my friends and I were naughty ten-yr-olds and used to dial people with funny names from the fonebook. I'll never forget Albert Fu*! Poor man. And 'Tickle, The Misses'. And poor Mr Lyon, to whom we would growl regularly.

You're right. No wonder nobody wants to be in the phone book these days. One adult female ex-friend got drunk one night and made dirty calls to men she picked at random from the directory!
4:41 am

She was just getting her own back.
4:42 am

oooops lol
4:42 am

It is so good to see friendly names!!! It seems every time I enter the chatter box in mid.day no one wants to speak to me and its lonely out there!
4:42 am

I've never heard of a woman doing that before.
4:43 am

Sure, Lori. You can experiment with whether the keyboard goes inside the mittens with the hands, or out.

FMItch, I love it when the British say whilst. No one says it in the US
8:21 am

howdy vic;)
8:21 am

I think the lb loss is more due to the fact that I had a cold all last week - didn't eat much at all, and didn't drink wine all week.... but, whatever works! :)
8:21 am
Angelsong

I wonder what the problem with Babble's server is.
8:21 am
Vicuna

Maybe you should start a whilst trend in Connecticut, bichon.
8:22 am
Vicuna

Phantom romance. But lest you draw any conclusions, acrimony is a phantom, too.
8:22 am
EvaNadine

my BF roll shis eyes at me because i say "hence," "thus," "therefore," "ergo," "erst" -- and the such...
8:23 am
Haz1558

As, I was pursuing a theory last week that the loss of smell leads to loss of taste leads to loss of weight. A clothes peg on the nose at meal times might be effective. What do you think?
8:23 am
Judi

Interesting theory, Haz. Painful, but interesting.
8:23 am
Haz1558

He's just jealous, EvaN.
8:23 am
Vicuna

A clothes peg on the mouth might be even more effective.
8:24 am
bichon

One doesn't start trends in Connecticut. It's known as "The Land of Steady Habits"
8:24 am
Haz1558

Pride feels no pain, Judi, or something like that. Think of the benefits.

No, this way, you can eat, you just get no enjoyment from your food - so you stop eating.
8:25 am

i could stand to lose a few tastebuds then:/
8:26 am
crosshair

though cisplatin does a wonderfull job of that:/
8:26 am

A steady diet of pickled soybeans would also make you lose all enjoyment in your food.
8:26 am

Alas, I am cursed with too many tastebuds. I am a supertaster.

last treatment tommorow ladies;)))

Okay. Well, celebration post-poned until you're ready for it.

A halloween mask?

So are you saying no Michael Jackson jokes?
8:29 am

What's in the needle? Antibiotics and such?

There's somebody (MJ) who mustn't start with the clothes peg in the nose routine.

Luckily, the only infestation we ever suffer here in Babble is trolls. Non-contagious as far as I know.
8:30 am
LoriP

Haz, his nose would fall off if he used your method.
8:31 am
Haz1558

I know!
8:31 am
FMitch

that and sudden sick server syndrome :(
8:31 am
Haz1558

And he's deadly thin anyway, so he doesn't really need the method.
8:32 am

***random water cannon fire at FM***
8:32 am

Nooooo, Lori! Now she'll freeze solid!
8:32 am

His friend, Mr Osmond, is in the grid.

Well, I'm pretty sure this last 32 is unattainable.

Gee thanks Lori, I had only just finished defrosting from this morning! .... oh thats lovely :)
8:33 am

Mr. Osmond is right next to former President Reagan.
8:34 am
Haz1558

I think you need to babble in mac and souwester from now on, FM.
8:34 am
Haz1558

(Profoundly hoping that the mention of a President's name doesn't provoke political debate)
8:35 am
FMitch

or a nie heated babble bubble
8:35 am
LoriP

***wonders how many dustwebs in the house re too many***
8:35 am
FMitch

Officiallly Lori more than 3
8:36 am
Judi

Profounding hoping you are right. I rescind my inadvertant invocation of a remotely political subject. Strike it from the record!
8:36 am
Haz1558

When they're setting off asthma attacks, you need to do something. Otherwise Health and Safety will be called in.
8:36 am
Judi

*profoundly* duh
8:36 am
LoriP

***That seems like an arbitrarily low number***
8:36 am
Haz1558

Thank you, Judi. We may just have got away with it.
8:36 am
FMitch

Ask Haz then
8:37 am
Vicuna

Oh, bother. TIme for a tedious shopping run. Back later.
8:37 am
Haz1558

You see, Lori, I think you need to keep on top of the dustweb situation. Don't let those spiders feel remotely useful. Strike them down!
8:37 am
FMitch

awe VI! you only just got her :(
8:37 am
Vicuna

But while I'm gone, feel free to discuss the candidates' views on cobweb criteria! Ha ha ha!

See you later, Vicuna.
8:37 am

*here
8:37 am
EvaNadine

any of the english-persons in the chatlog ever heard of a music group called The Streets?
8:37 am
LoriP

Shopping is evil Vic. Don't do it.
8:38 am
Vicuna

(Or should I say "whilst I'm gone")
8:38 am
Haz1558

Don't look at me, EvaN. I'm old.
8:38 am
Vicuna

(Evil shopping may be, but making son go through the winter sans coat is probably even eviller.)
8:39 am
Haz1558

Whilst you are gone, Vicuna, we will endeavour to keep the chatlog flowing with intelligence and erudition.
8:39 am
LoriP

Perchance Vic will return at her earliest opportunity?
8:39 am
Haz1558

You're buying him a winter coat? You're too good to him. Would a sack not suffice?
8:39 am
LoriP

A heavy sweater is close enough.....
8:39 am
Vicuna

DO your best, do your best, and mayhap I will return anon.
8:39 am
LoriP

Do you clothe them every year? Tsk tsk.
8:40 am
Vicuna

He has a winter coat from last year... But the sleeves hardly reach his elbows this year!
8:40 am

EvaN vaguely re The Streets
8:40 am

Make do and mend. Use some curtain material to patch things.

Finish up any words you're working on, folks. I'm about to do a database check, and that usually locks the server up for 5-10 minutes. Then I'm going to restart the server, which will hopefully not take too long. So what I'm saying is, go get a cup of coffee or run an errand or two. ;)

12:30 pm
Vicuna

Oh dear. Tell!
12:31 pm
Atalante

he was in his study playing games on his computers. his study is right next to the front door. I was asleep in the spare bedroom, 2 floors up. Just to set the scene. He's very ill, and I've been more or less giving in to stomach bugs for a few weeks
12:32 pm
Atalante

so while I'm "slightly ill" (according to him), he's Very Ill
12:32 pm
Atalante

so, the doorbell rings. fedex or someone with a parcel for me. does he sign for the parcel, or yell up to me waking me up and saying he can't possibly sign for it because he's wearing his dressing gown?
12:33 pm
flosey

could I have a clue for re8 please?
12:33 pm
Vicuna

Uh oh.
12:33 pm
Atalante

I'm still quite boggled as to why being in a dressing gown means you can't sign a bit of paper
12:35 pm
Vicuna

How very silly! (and annoying)
12:35 pm
Atalante

i know. and I still haven't discovered whether he managed to get the parcel - oh, the trauma when so ill - or whether I'm going to have to go down to the post office and pick it up
12:36 pm
flosey

I agree - but when a man is in pain it has to be the worst ever - no woman could possible endure such pain - hahaha very annoying!

basically stid, they attach the fluorescent protein to an DNA marker - and then reattach that into the host DNA
1:50 pm
stidmama

thanks cross!
1:50 pm
Atalante

the reporter / marker gene they attach the fluorescent marker to will be a bit of DNA they understand and therefore know to which part of the gene it will attach
1:50 pm
crosshair

np stid:)
1:51 pm
stidmama

yes cross, I think this will give me what I need to ask further questions. Atalante... THIS is the kind of language that confuses me! I don't understand how they staple the damn things on!!!!
1:52 pm
Atalante

they don't staple anything anywhere lol
1:52 pm
stidmama

I think it has something to do with primers or restriction enzymes. or something.

1:54 pm
crosshair

sokay stid..im a old pro.this is my third fight with the beast and the last treatment was today
1:54 pm
Atalante

if you place a new gene next to the host DNA, that piece can attach to the DNA - you know DNA has 2 strands, yeah? well it can unravel into single strands, and the new bit of marker can attach to the other side of one strand and thus get incorporated into the host DNA
1:54 pm
stidmama

OH! does it stick out the side like a methyl group?
1:54 pm
crosshair

yaa! for ata..shes got it nailed for ya:)
1:55 pm
stidmama

*hugs cross gently* I hope this time it works. You are one of my favorite canadians.
1:55 pm
Atalante

it's like a loooooong narrow jigsaw. just imagine the new gene can kick one piece out, and slot itself into the same place
1:55 pm
crosshair

:)) you get my next bacon weave sammich stid:)
1:55 pm
stidmama

so you dump the marker into solution with the DNA along with a primer of sorts that lets the marker attach
1:56 pm
Atalante

yep!
1:56 pm
stidmama

maybe...
1:56 pm

This is Sam's story about a fellow oceanography professor. He knew the name and description of every known fish. He also greeted all the new UCSD students every year by name at an assembly. Then one year he just stopped greeting the students. When asked why, he said that every time he memorized a new student he forgot a fish, and the fish were more important. So, he filled up his brain,clearly.

Scrabs, the mometasone "cured" the horrid itching, but worsened the fullness.... I finished the course of mometasone drops because the itch was so bad, now the fullness is. Doc said sudafed or afrin.. I opted for sudafed... Shoudl I do the three days of Afrin instead
7:19 pm
Scrabbler

But you got injured with a wipe-out, right, N?
7:19 pm

I live alone, and my family is 4 hours away, so surgery is not the best prospect for me

hi. this is my first time playing and i think ive picked most of it up. I dont understand though what bernice for example means when she says im missing a 'MO 5/12'. for a start how does she know that the 2nd letter is an 'o' and what does the '5/12' mean?
much thanks for any help.

tom, if you look at your word list, you'll see every word has a letter count and a point count. read the "help" section at the top of the page for explanation of the point count. so people refer to words as MO 5/12, meaning a word starts with MO, has five letters and 12 points.

tom, at the bottom of the page in the "friends of babble" section, you'll see a link to "lickity's babble clues," which will give you the stats (first two letters, letter count and point count) for all the words in the grid.

some people use that list to help them find all the words.
