Eric Thomas is Host [ Only a partial log of session] VK] Greetings to each of you [E.T.(CA)] Hi, VKN! VK] Applet seems to have a problem [E.T.(CA)] Hmmm....not on this end. VK] Using MSIE rather than the usual Netscapd 6 [E.T.(CA)] I use IE VK] The dialogue says " Warning: Applet Window" [E.T.(CA)] Hmmm...do you have the latest updates and fixes from MS for your IE? VK] So I have no idea what it means except initially I was not able to type a thing. [E.T.(CA)] I see. VK] LOL, ET. I only run with the latest version LOL LOL LOL [E.T.(CA)] E-X-C-U-S-E ME!!! :=) VK] LOL [E.T.(CA)] (Slapping myself) I knew that! VK] Well hit be da trufe. [E.T.(CA)] I know, I know,....I'll go stand in the corner. VK] No corners in this room. [E.T.(CA)] Ahhhh....the Oval Office?! VK] A round room with only circles [smiling] [E.T.(CA)] Okay then, the Rotunda!? VK] We be together!! [E.T.(CA)] :=) [E.T.(CA)] Check this out... [STG] ? [E.T.(CA)] An aquaintance of mine picked up a microfilm reader/printer last week from a state wharehouse sale for $26.00. [STG] lol [E.T.(CA)] And supposedly, it works fine. [STG] spelling bug gotcha? [E.T.(CA)] Naw, the gremlin. [STG] that's a good deal if it works fine [E.T.(CA)] (demon) [E.T.(CA)] It's an exceptional deal! Those machines must sell new for thousands of dollars. [STG] they do [E.T.(CA)] Maybe more than $10,000.00? [STG] no [STG] what kind is it [E.T.(CA)] I don't know. [STG] I knew that [STG] :) [STG] I wish we could get the kind that connects to the PC [E.T.(CA)] The optics and cabinetry alone MUST go for somewhere near 6 or 7 thousand because the machines are not sold to the masses. [E.T.(CA)] But the machine they just got also prints the pages. [STG] it depends on the brand [STG] and type, single, dual, motorized, etcccccccccc [E.T.(CA)] Does your facility have comparable equipment? If so, how much did they cost? [STG] ours is several years old, I did order one for another library acouple of years ago for 3500 [STG] manual [STG] not motorized [E.T.(CA)] I see. [E.T.(CA)] I'll have to find out what the specs are on this one. [STG] add a couple thousand for the motorized attachment [E.T.(CA)] The one you ordered also prints the pages? [STG] the one for the PC is running a little under 5k [STG] yes [E.T.(CA)] I see. [E.T.(CA)] I didn't know that they were making machines that interface with PC's. [STG] you can get just a reader for under 1k [E.T.(CA)] Brand new, moderate quality? [STG] straight from the catalog no bells or whistles [E.T.(CA)] The one my aquaintance has is a steel cabinet version (like the type used at the NARA in San Bruno) that's automatic. I just remember being told that it took several men to load and unload it. [STG] hope he doesn't plan on moving it around much [E.T.(CA)] I guess not. It's going in their home. But I just get the impression (from seeing and using the NARA machines) that it must sell new for over $10,000.... [E.T.(CA)] But, that's just my guess. You'd know better than I. [STG] there are some that are that expensive [E.T.(CA)] Well folks, I need to get busy elsewhere. Have a great day. See y'all next time. [STG] hi [jtlogan (PA)] Hello folks [STG] how are ya [jtlogan (PA)] Great, how about you? [STG] i'm perking [jtlogan (PA)] Wha'd I miss today? [STG] nothing [jtlogan (PA)] Hey VKN [STG] E.T. just left a few mins ago [STG] VKN may be away [jtlogan (PA)] Nothing new today? [STG] I haven't seen her say anything for quite awhile [jtlogan (PA)] She may just be monitoring the site. [STG] not really, E.T. was discussing the price of microfilm readers/printers seems a friend of his picked up one at a warehouse sale for 26 bucks [jtlogan (PA)] That is a great price. [jtlogan (PA)] Our group took our annual trip on Saturday. [STG] oh where did you go? [jtlogan (PA)] It was a great trip to Baltimore-visited some historic sites, underground railroad site, the NAACP National HQ, and the Blacks in Wax Museum. [jtlogan (PA)] There was also a presentation by a Harriett Tubman impersonator [STG] that sounds enjoyable [jtlogan (PA)] We took 52 on the bus [STG] nice crowd [jtlogan (PA)] It was a very enjoyable day, we had lunch at the Baltimore waterfront. [STG] now that sounds nice [jtlogan (PA)] We also had a step-on guide that was excellent, for the guided tour of the city. [jtlogan (PA)] African-American sites. [STG] glad to know folks get out and about :) [jtlogan (PA)] He also arranged for the tours of the historic sites. [jtlogan (PA)] We have had this planned for about 6 months. [jtlogan (PA)] Details were finalized about 2 months ago. [STG] best kind, give folks enough time to prepare [jtlogan (PA)] This was probably the best trip that we have taken to date. [STG] sounds like you really had a good time [jtlogan (PA)] Last year we went to NYC, which was also very interesting, but there was no guide, which would have been helpful. [jtlogan (PA)] It was a great time, historical and informative. [STG] yea that helps when somebody knows [jtlogan (PA)] Going to get going, need to get to the PO. [jtlogan (PA)] Have a good one. [STG] ok [STG] bye [jtlogan (PA)] bye
