[15:00:44] <cmn32480> janrinok !!
[15:00:58] <cmn32480> bytram !!
[15:02:29] <janrinok> cmn!!
[15:02:38] <cmn32480> how goes it sir?
[15:02:51] <janrinok> fine - are you still 'camping'?
[15:02:57] <cmn32480> no we are home
[15:03:09] <janrinok> isn't that a bit early?
[15:03:11] <cmn32480> just finished hanging up the tent and tarps in the garage to dry
[15:03:16] <cmn32480> no
[15:03:21] <cmn32480> been gone since Friday night
[15:03:53] <janrinok> I thought perhaps you were beginning to miss the old site
[15:04:09] <cmn32480> really?
[15:04:19] <cmn32480> what brought that thought out?
[15:04:26] <cmn32480> was I ghost posting over there?
[15:04:39] <janrinok> well, I hadn't expected to hear from you until Sun evening your time
[15:04:42] <cmn32480> or was I spamming over here?
[15:07:30] <cmn32480> so, do you suck dicks for fun or for profit?
[15:07:52] <janrinok> lol
[15:08:18] <cmn32480> I've seen ti so many times, that I'm starting to wonder
[15:09:04] <janrinok> it doesn't happen very often here, so I am grateful for that at least
[15:09:08] <cmn32480> amen
[15:09:12] <cmn32480> we have been quite lucky
[15:09:34] <cmn32480> there have been very few a-holes that hae pulled that kind of crap
[15:11:16] <janrinok> I was just checking to see if the site was healthy - and I see the CH has posted some stories so we are good for a few hours yet
[15:11:30] <cmn32480> oh good
[15:11:37] <cmn32480> I haven't even looked at the queue yet
[15:12:45] <janrinok> no rush - plenty of time
[15:12:57] <cmn32480> I'd liek to shower first if possible
[15:13:58] <janrinok> we'd prefer it if your showered first too
[15:14:12] <cmn32480> I believe you would
[15:14:21] <cmn32480> I am rather stinky.....
[15:14:27] <janrinok> yes - we know
[15:14:43] <janrinok> must be a strong breeze
[15:14:45] <cmn32480> HEY! you limplying that my editorial skills are pants?
[15:15:11] <janrinok> nope - but a breath of 'fresh air' you are not!
[15:15:29] * cmn32480 sniffs his pits... and retches
[15:17:34] <cmn32480> woof
[15:17:37] <cmn32480> that's nasty
[15:18:53] <janrinok> did you all have a good weekend?
[15:19:03] <cmn32480> we did. even brought home all the kids
[15:19:13] <cmn32480> no major injuries
[15:19:18] <janrinok> oh, nevermind, perhaps next time
[15:19:47] <cmn32480> well... we can't leave one behind each time... it'd be too obvious
[15:20:03] <janrinok> I suppose so
[15:20:30] <cmn32480> all in all it was a really good time.
[15:20:42] <janrinok> weather stay good?
[15:20:47] <cmn32480> the kids (all not just mine) we well behaved.
[15:20:57] <cmn32480> rained last night after we had all gone to bed
[15:21:05] <cmn32480> stopped before we got up.
[15:21:10] <janrinok> not too bad then
[15:21:28] <cmn32480> but it means I have to dry out everything before we can put it all away
[15:22:05] <janrinok> yep, but that is better than returning home all cold and wet and having to hang stuff up anyway
[15:22:32] <cmn32480> agreed
[15:22:35] <cmn32480> it'll be ok
[15:22:45] <cmn32480> just lose use of the garage for a couple days
[15:22:52] <cmn32480> while it all dries out
[15:23:24] <janrinok> yep, but your car will cope as long as you don't get a frost. Scraping the windows first thing in the morning isn't much fun
[15:24:28] <cmn32480> MY car doesn't have a slot in the garage.... only J's car gets the benefit of neat shelter
[15:24:54] <janrinok> ah, so you are used to it then
[15:25:05] <cmn32480> mine lives in the drive, despite the fact that we have a 2 car garage
[15:25:23] <cmn32480> my slot is taken up by the usual junk
[15:25:28] <janrinok> wasn't going to ask - but now you mention it...
[15:25:50] <janrinok> we have a garage that has never had a car in it since it was built in the 1970's
[15:25:56] <cmn32480> HAHAHAHA
[15:26:08] <cmn32480> janrinok's workshop?
[15:26:13] <janrinok> previous occupant used it as a wordworking shop, we converted it back to a garage
[15:26:25] <janrinok> now it is storage and laundry
[15:26:29] <cmn32480> garage = junk pile?
[15:27:15] <janrinok> I have another room in the cellar which is just for my workshop and computers - although we have computers dotted all around the house
[15:27:29] <cmn32480> hmmmm... S's fault no doubt...
[15:28:36] <janrinok> not really, one of the first things I asked for when we bought the house was a room for a workshop - never been able to have one before
[15:29:10] <cmn32480> I meant the computers
[15:29:25] <cmn32480> it'd be nice to have a workshop
[15:29:37] <janrinok> upstairs are 2 bedrooms and bathroom for guests, we live entirely on the ground floor, and the cellar is garage, workshop, storage etc
[15:30:09] <janrinok> so computers upstairs for guests, 3 on this floor for us, my server and other machines live downstairs
[15:30:15] <cmn32480> I'd be happy if I could have the 2 car garage be for 2 cars...
[15:30:21] <janrinok> dreamer!
[15:30:28] <cmn32480> apparently I am
[15:31:47] * cmn32480 dreams of having a room in the house just for me
[15:32:42] <janrinok> well, it is nice to have but I have had to change my plans as S's health has changed. I now spend most of my time on my 2 computers on our living floor so as to be near to her
[15:32:57] <cmn32480> yes
[15:33:13] <janrinok> but for doing repairs or building things, the workshop is brilliant
[15:33:19] <cmn32480> that'd be the thing to do. She needs the assistance....
[15:33:30] * cmn32480 dreams of having a room in the house just for me...
[15:33:43] <cmn32480> a workshop 'ld be swell....
[15:34:33] <janrinok> the nice thing - which is trivial I suppose - is that if I am in the middle of a big job, I don't have to put everything away and I can continue where I left off the next day
[15:35:13] <cmn32480> ^^^^ This a thousand times
[15:35:46] <janrinok> All the pictures that I see of homes in the US suggests that they are much bigger than European homes. Probably the same number of rooms, but more space overall
[15:37:29] <cmn32480> I've got about 4500sqft including the finished basement, and the smi-finihsed part of the basement
[15:37:35] <cmn32480> it is quite the McMansion
[15:38:08] <janrinok> I've no idea of the floor area - I must try and work it out sometime
[15:38:26] <janrinok> we buy and sell houses by room count, not always by area
[15:38:54] <cmn32480> ahhhhh
[15:39:21] <cmn32480> 4 bedrooms, kitchen, 2.5 baths, dining, living room, family room,
[15:39:28] <cmn32480> office
[15:39:36] <janrinok> so it would be advertised as a 4 bedroom, 2 reception rooms, 2 bathrooms and 4 utility rooms
[15:40:25] <cmn32480> the office might qualify as a bedroom. it has a closet
[15:40:44] <janrinok> oh, I suppose I should put a kitchen in there but it is really an open plan kitchen/dining/reception room
[15:41:01] <cmn32480> gotcha
[15:41:36] <cmn32480> here, things are sold by bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage
[15:42:33] <janrinok> I find that square footage can be a bit misleading. For instance, we have 2 bedrooms upstairs built into the roof space.
[15:42:58] <cmn32480> agreed. adn that all plays into making sure that you SEE the house
[15:43:09] <janrinok> But you cannot actually stand at the sides of the room because of the sloping roof. A bed is OK there, but you couldn't put a chair there
[15:43:30] <cmn32480> bedroom for kids only!
[15:43:49] <cmn32480> J had one of those rooms when she lived at her parents
[15:44:01] <janrinok> that sort of thing. Although we have got 6 bed spaces upstairs, only 4 are really suitable for adults
[15:44:01] <cmn32480> prior to us getting married
[15:44:29] <janrinok> nothing wrong with it - it makes the most of the floor space
[15:45:04] <cmn32480> yes, but if the space is only for guests, and you don't use it, no worries. best possible use of the space
[15:45:15] <janrinok> exactly
[15:45:35] <cmn32480> efficieny is the name of the game
[15:46:01] <janrinok> when we arrived here S could still walk and it was our plan to use upstairs for our bedroom and 1 guest room, and to spread out more on this floor
[15:46:09] <janrinok> ... but plans change :)
[15:46:29] <cmn32480> and adapting to changing circumstances is a fine skill to have
[15:46:40] <cmn32480> though I suppose you are well aware of that
[15:47:27] <janrinok> silly things still annoy and frustrate me - the doors are fine, until somebody needs to use a wheelchair, and then they are a tight fit. Still usable but not as good as it could be
[15:48:03] <cmn32480> not a whole lot you can do for that. widening dooras is a tough gig
[15:48:14] <janrinok> especially in load bearing walls
[15:48:42] <cmn32480> uh huh
[15:48:49] <janrinok> but, hey, that what life is all about
[15:49:08] <cmn32480> experimentation that might bring down a significant poirtion of the house?
[15:49:17] <cmn32480> I shoudl think that might not be a good idea
[15:49:55] <janrinok> If we widen the doors, you have to think about what is on both sides of the wall - one door cannot be widened unless we redesign the kitchen again!
[15:50:18] <cmn32480> ACH! Th'd be bad
[15:50:23] <cmn32480> and REALLY expensive
[15:50:30] <janrinok> yep
[15:51:17] <janrinok> as it is, we both know (although don't mention) that S will probably be bed-bound in 5 - 10 years time.
[15:52:30] <janrinok> As I am the one that uses the kitchen, it is good enough for what I want, but of course no good for S
[15:52:37] <cmn32480> well... yes
[15:53:20] <janrinok> so the priority is getting changes made that make her life easier and more enjoyable
[15:53:37] <cmn32480> you are a good man, Charlie Brown.
[15:53:52] <janrinok> nah, anybody would do the same
[15:54:10] <cmn32480> doesn't change the correctness of the statement
[15:54:46] <janrinok> Gets a bit frustrating when you make a major change, and within a few years it has become redundant as her situation changes
[15:55:55] <cmn32480> i suppose that would be true. and must be a bit of frustration
[15:56:44] * cmn32480 wonders how many keys are on his keyboard
[15:57:04] <janrinok> well there's a job that will pass a few minutes ...
[15:57:35] * cmn32480 looks for silicon O-Rings as dampners for the mechanical keyboards
[15:57:51] * cmn32480 is running out of fingers quickly
[15:58:14] <janrinok> take your socks off - but I fear that will not be enough
[15:58:42] <cmn32480> already did it...
[15:58:48] <cmn32480> and ran out again
[15:58:51] <cmn32480> damn....
[15:59:04] <janrinok> call the kids in!
[15:59:20] <cmn32480> still short... even w/ J
[15:59:36] <janrinok> send them back out again to grow more digits!
[15:59:54] <cmn32480> shoudl have had kids with 6 toes I suppose
[16:02:53] <janrinok> I take it you have delayed having that shower?
[16:03:04] <cmn32480> waiting for J to get clean first
[16:12:04] <cmn32480> ok. my turn to shower
[16:12:20] <cmn32480> then I have to pull all the sleeping bacgs out adn get them all dried
[16:12:38] <cmn32480> If I don't see you, have a good day.
[16:12:53] <cmn32480> I'm sure we will chat tomorrow. :-)
[16:13:02] <cmn32480> my best to S, please.
[16:15:37] <janrinok> will do, and pass mine to J pse
[17:42:29] <cmn32480> egad... I'm way behind on getting rid of my old had drives... this one is from April 1996
