Happy Birthday, Adam. And thank God your mother didn't name you

Adam was smart to get his mid-life out of the way early. Now he can
enjoy his golden years while he's still young enough to appreciate
them. Happy Birthday!

nah. adam was only 50 in high school, when he wanted a monocle and pipe

Bravo, control. I can't say that the new look is sexy, but it is most
certainly sleek and efficient. Being the father of utilitarian logic, I
would say that function is always more desirable than form when it comes
to computer interfaces. Just employ the hedonic calculus and enjoy the
results. I'm sure my good friend Jeremy would agree were his head not
hanging on some wall in a prominent English University, or is that my
head? I don't seem to care, too busy with that contented pig nonsense.
Fuck it, who wants tea.

The forum has been particularly incoherent recently.

And for Adam - I must say not only is the new start page nicer looking
it actually loads (AND FAST!) on my home "computer"

Adam V. Pilon Triple Digit Media Concern 09/Mar/2001:21:21:33
Why, thank you Wade.. Thank you for the compliment. As TDMC celebrates
our one year anniversary this month, I'd like to thank all TDMC users
for their support. Without You, there would be no TDMC. I would
personally like to thank you all for using TDMC as your start page.
To celebrate our anniversary, we will be rolling out a more-efficient
interface. The old interface, I think, was graphically pleasing, but
was becoming to large. The code was getting large, and took too long
to load for some users. As I'm sure you noticed, TDMC's developers
have decided to go with a streamlined user-interface. During the
remainder of March, make sure to check out TDMC's sub pages as changes
will take place on a page-by-page basis. -- Check out "eComs," -- It's
in a beta test right now! And as always, I'm always looking to make
this site more "Usefull" to her users. If there is a site that you use
often, please let me know, and I'm sure I can find a home for it -- or
perhaps start a new sub-page.

I've been getting some reports of the Navigator Buttons malfunctioning

please drop me a quick note either here or via email and let me know if
you've had problems, or not..

Thanks, all.....

I have bad news.
My cat was killed today. Curley. He ran out into the road and he was
hit by a car. He was put to sleep this morning, his hips were
shattered, and so were both of his back legs. We don't think he was in
pain, he purred when you pet him. So i'm glad he wasn't in any pain.
He was only six months old. I'm glad his brother walt is still around,
so there is one cute grey kitty to make us happy.

hi all-
this is more managable than sending out a mass email...
but anyway, my computer had a few problems this week ["boot record not
count"]. i had to reinstall 98, and lost a lot of settings, etc.
so my cable modem is not talking to the tower right now, ergo i don't
have home-based net access.
which explains why i haven't been emailing, if any of you were
expecting to hear from me.
i hope to have the lazarus machine full functional in the next week,
with an upgrade of sorts [more RAM, new sound card].

rock on sister.

All other potatoes can bugger off

Howdy. I wanted all of you to know that you should eat potatoes. They
are delicious, nutricious and brown like turds. That makes them
yummy. Personally, Dan hates potatoes because they are delicious,
nutritious and brown like turds.

this was all his idea.
Thank you, and have a wonderful remainder of your day.

PS make sure it's potato filled.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

TDMC has been hacked! We will be going "off the air" to make repairs
at 3:00 Central Standard Time. FTP and Telnet services are currently
down at TDMC, and therefore, no updates can be made to the site. The
only way to repair the damage that's been done is to reformat the
Cobalt Server and reinstall the operating System.

TDMC apologizes for any inconvienience this may cause.

Although reformatting the server means that Janice will have to re-post
the site this evening, it isn't really that big a deal. TDMC regularly
makes backups of all settings and files in .raq format. What this
means is that as soon as the server is back up, all Janice will have to
do is upload the .raq file to the server, all settings, files, users,
and pages will be restored.

We hope that TDMC's downtime will be brief.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kris   24/Jan/2001:23:37:32
Hey, I just had an idea. how 'bout all of
us riding up on the train? It would take longer, and
probably cost more, and cut down on our chi-town fun time,
but Dave would only have to make it to galesburg and back, a measly
commute. Unless someone else has access to a roomy car, for, while
i dont' mind driving, my car doesn't accomodate Dave very well.
keep me posted on travel arrangements.

The Nubian Nut, my uninformed and crunchy friend, just happens to be the
crowning achievement of the funk genre. While I have produced many
legendary songs like Atomic Dog and Nuclear Fishin, "the nut"
funk-d-fies the spirit like no other. Even white folks can dance to
this one.

What on earth is "The Nubian Nut" and why is it so important to so many
people? It sounds terrible.

wow. who had the "Nubian nut"?? i'm trying to remember the melody, but

What's going on?

I suppose we can try to all go in my car
even though one tire tends to go flat and the service engine soon light
has been on for over a week for no apparent reason and the engine
temperature gauge fluctuates wildly and is therefore useless and the
last time it was in chicago the wheel broke off
but apart from taking 2 cars i don't see another option
Dave   23/Jan/2001:21:17:18
I am officially confirming my desire to attend the Chicago festivities.
I am doing so only because all of you might normally expect me to drive
on such an occasion. Unfortunately, my car's transmission is less than
happy, and as grahm can confirm, an unhappy Fifth Avenue can leave you
stranded in a far away city for a week. Therefore I am soliciting
transportation to the windy city for myself and probably Kris. On a
lighter note, Bob, you go girl. "Holdin a shield that's a glowin green,
raising a spear that shoots laser beams. Ridin in a space ship up and
down the street tootin at the fine women on the block he meet. Goin
down to the studio track by track and lettin everyone know the Empire
struck back!
Adam V. Pilon   23/Jan/2001:16:22:34
Hey Bob... I'll be happy to pick up / drop you off. I'll give you a
call tonight.

Bob Manasco   23/Jan/2001:16:08:51
Glad to hear about Crochety Tiger, Friggin' Dragon. I am definitely
planning to come up for the weekend. I may not have use of my car,
though, so would it be possible for someone to pick me up from the
Chicago Amtrak station (225 S. CANAL ST.) Friday night and drop me back
off there Sunday morning?

I miss all you's, and would love to attend the shindig this weekend.

P.S. I just downloaded "The Nubian Nut" from Napster. :)

You can read it for your self.
It clearly says August 4th.
I was right.
I love Megan and I won't have you try and take her from me.
Nesssssssssssssss   20/Jan/2001:16:19:26
A lot happens on the forum in a week. Grahm, if you meant my sister
Megan, her birthday was not the day you mentioned. It would have been
more correct to mention August 4 in that case. Right. Dancing Monkey
evil Macha sounds like a great idea but driving a long time to see it
does not. It happens. I still have no functioning email at work
which means I have to find constructive ways of wasting time. As it
stands, I have failed. Sheesh.

I now need a nap. I am a sleepy monkey.
sarah   18/Jan/2001:10:31:00
d greatly appreciate it! i will provide food, a place to sleep, a
comfy place to sleep, entertainment, cats to play with, and any other
fun and exciting things that beloit can provide....

thank you!

sarah   18/Jan/2001:10:28:43
friends, i have some pleas for help:

(i shall put them in numbered order)

1) Just found out last night that another one of the cats at my current
abode is pregnant. So what does this mean? That we will have yet more
cats to overrun this world, and also the farm I reside on unless
someone is compassionate to take them. She was impregnated over a
month ago, and being as we just realized last night that she is
pregnant, she should be having her kittens in less than a month.
The mother is a funky looking tabby with not quite stripes, but more
circular patters, like crop circles! on her back. The dad is white
with orangey colored tips and points, (very pretty) and bright blue
eyes. Both have incredibly friendly dispostions.
Please find some love for these future cats! pleaaaasssseeee.

2) I am moving! yes! same area, just out. I got an apartment with my
boyyfriend and we are moving the weekend of Feb. 1'st. If anyone would
like to help us move, that would be wonderful! I woul
Grahm Gus 17/Jan/2001:14:56:37
1) Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is probably good enough to be seen
twice, especially if the second time is at the IMAX.
2) If it isn't, there will perhaps be something just as groovy playing
at the IMAX theater. If not, perhaps there's a theater in Chicago that
actually is cool enough to get either Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? or
The Gift.
3) Blue Öyster Cult is playing at Navy Pier in Chicago on August 4th.
This day is Sarah's birthday. (And I think Megan's as well. Am I
right?) Everybody should go to that. I'll look into ticket prices and
4) I want to thank Adam for making the buttons on the left BOOP.

Sad in slacks
Happy when I lacks (them)
peeping tom   17/Jan/2001:14:55:29
will it be clothing optional???

that would be good....
realllll good
Adam V. Pilon   17/Jan/2001:14:16:14
Good Day!

In an attempt to take some control and provide some stability to the
Crouching Tiger situation, I am posting the following:

Hear Ye, Hear ye!
I would like to invite you all to Chicago the weekend of the 26th-27th-
28th! Come for the Legos, stay for the Movie! We can all go to Jef's
on Friday Night, the 26th, and enjoy an evening of colored, inter-
conecting, plastic blocks... And on Saturday, Crouching Tiger at IMAX
(pending that it's still showing) I'd like to invite you all** to the
Pilon Apartment on Saturday for dinner before the movie!

That is all...

jefffffffFFFFFFFF do i like it when it's good? 17/Jan/2001:13:19:22
hey, if y'all are seeing that tiger movie this weekend, what does that
do to plans for IMAX on the 26th?
cuz i was planning for Legos on the 25th, but it would be easier to do
it on the 26th.
yea or nay?

fill me in cap'n...

oh, and i don't think we needed to be told that derik's an idiot on the
front page. i think we almost all know that, even if only on a
subconscious level. there might be some arguments on the "fat"
and "little" parts tho.

oh, and all of my grad school apps are done and in the mail. say your
prayers to god, yahweh, gus, eris, or cthulhu that i get in and get
some money. the fluorescents are stealing the soul i don't have as it

they call me mr. smith
Grahm Gus 17/Jan/2001:09:56:49
Everybody who likes it when it's good, raise your hands.


Now, everybody who wants to go to DeKalb Saturday Night to see some
kind of Tyger and also a Dragon raise your hands.

9:40 PM.
But first, dinner with Sarah and her Peter at like 7:00 PM.

Wade, with regard to this [insert amusing verb and animal here] movie,
I'm with you, my brother. I say we form a go team to acquire it in Iowa
City. If it's good, and still there, we see it again at the IMAX.
Nothing personal people, but good entertainment, rare beast that it is,
waits for no party or checkbook. Who's with us!

The gods made heavy and saw that it was good. They told us to play as
loud as hell and we promised that we would.

this whole thinger that peeple have beene talkin' about is my next
'tis another bout of LEGO action, where i dump my substantive collection
of brightly coloured briks on the for-once clean floor of my livin'
room [tanks ma] and then invite my most loved people to come 'n' play
with them.

the last one was a blast.
i'm hoping many will attend.
all ages are welcome. i believe the youngest will be 17 and the oldest
will be old than i, and that's old enuf.

more details later.
jim bobs girl   15/Jan/2001:16:15:54

with salsa.

whats this here about jef sueeeeeeee having a party
Jim   15/Jan/2001:16:03:38
Jim WAS in fact trying to think of others: If the movie isn't showing,
how does that effect others? Poorly I should think. If it has to be
delayed a week, That's not a problem. Getting together for two events
rather than one (Jef's Party and IMAX Tiger) is a good thing.

Let's hope it works out for the best.

Jim's Other Brother   15/Jan/2001:15:56:09
Plus, word on the strizeet is that Jef is havin' a fly party the
weekend of the 26th!

You know, Jim, Sarah isn't the only one who can't come up this weekend.
For instance, Grahm has plans this weekend that anchor him pretty
securely to the Quad Cities area. Think of somebody other than
yourself for once, you snotty bastard.

Jim's Brother - Jim2
Jim   15/Jan/2001:15:08:05
Hey Sarah -- We're not sure the movie will be running that far out.
with only one screen, they tend to change the show often. Anychance of
you being able to borrow a couple of bucks to make it this coming

sarah the cow girl 15/Jan/2001:13:24:05
hey folkaroonies

no one said anything....sooooooo

is anyone up for the constipated cat on the 26/27/28???? of this month
of our holy feline, ano domini?

and i'm sure beloit has some kick ass news stories everyone wants to
hear......right? right.....

like the night the cow moo'ed i'm sure that would work.

Adam V. Pilon   14/Jan/2001:23:43:24
I need some help, boys and girls.....
My staff has been having some trouble writing "stories" for the front
page 'cause we haven't been in the loop lately. What's going on?
Something interesting happen to you lately? What's new?

Write up something in the form of a news story, and submitt it to me.
Georgia or myself will post it on the front page, giving you the by-
line. Imagine! You can be a guest columnist on Triple Digit Media
Concern's front page! It's the easiest way to become a published
author. Go for it.

Anything will do... Did you have a particularly good glass of Kool-Aid
brand soft drink? How about a good restfull night? Did you have a
wonderful telephone call? Tell us about it!

Submit stories to

Thank you and have a wonderful soda.

Important bit of business #1: Someone contact me via conventional means
when the incontinent tiger blows the dragon as I don't check this forum

Important bit of business #2: As has been frequently noted by TDMC's
devoted fans, the new buttons are indeed sexy. Bravo, Control, mackerel
for you. The problem with this new system is that I can't make the
buttons move anymore. They are more petite, but being able to push them
nearly off the screen to read my e-mail was handy. If this function
could be returned it would make me ever so happy.

Well if you do the answer is no. I have so many pictures I have to
sign. Plus im nearly immune to the I.V now, if you know what I mean.
Anywhooooooo time to practice, new Kiss reunion I have to get ready

bye for now,

Adam V. Pilon   11/Jan/2001:23:31:24
Okay.. Here's the deal.. I called IMAX today, and the lady couldn't
give me any details on how long Jumping Lion would be there. Like any
other corporate theater, they aren't given movie information until the
Thursday before the next movie-week. I was thinking perhaps the
weekend of the 21-22 would be good -- as since this movie is doing so
well, I expect it should still be here.

So, let's tentatively schedual some cool get together in Chicago that
weekend. We can get a bunch to go and see the Kicking Kitty movie.

Details to follow.
