vance_stevens: You are helping me
vance_stevens: I needed to get this set up for the conference we're having
vance_stevens: So congratulations on getting a web cam
vance_stevens: This is superb
vance_stevens: I'm taking pictures of this and
I'll put it on our web pages
vance_stevens: There's a bit of bad news about the webheads list
vance_stevens: It's not sending mail any more
vance_stevens: I've written yahoo about it
vance_stevens: It stopped Nov 1
vance_stevens: But the mailing list is still there, so I downloaded that
vance_stevens: So I can communicate with everybody
mysailing: so bad
vance_stevens: a bit of trouble
vance_stevens: but we can get around it. It's good that the addresses were still there.
vance_stevens: Would you like a Polo mint?
mysailing: i like chocolate better
vance_stevens: I'll show you my office
mysailing: is this your office?
mysailing: you have two computers
mysailing: it looks good.
vance_stevens: So where are you?
mysailing: In my office 80 person share one room
mysailing: i am at home now
mysailing: this is my room
vance_stevens: oh, can you show me the room?
mysailing: it is a mess now
mysailing: can only show you clean part
vance_stevens: You like maps
mysailing: ok, that is it
mysailing: since it is easy to check
mysailing: yeah, hope more people would use webcam soon.
mysailing: i just heard from John that his fell over to the ground
vance_stevens: Well, I hope you can hook it up on Sunday
vance_stevens: I dropped mine too but it still works ok
mysailing: yeah, i would try
vance_stevens: OK, I guess I should get to work now (well, for me, this IS work)
mysailing: it is really small, i mean the cameara
mysailing: ok, bye, have a good day
vance_stevens: Yeah, you've helped me
vance_stevens: Wait, do that again
vance_stevens: I'll get a picture
mysailing: you are welcome
mysailing: nice pose
vance_stevens: I've got to get off the phone too
mysailing: ok, bye
Yahoo! Messenger: mysailing has logged out. (11/3/01 at 10:07 AM)
mysailing: vance, you want to try my little job today?
vance_stevens: what's that?
mysailing: it is the web cam manager. I just took picutures with it, not know whether others can see it too.
mysailing: do you have real player?
vance_stevens: yes of course
mysailing: where should i send them to you?
vance_stevens: I see, ok, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
mysailing: ok, wait.
mysailing: i need to find another mail function to send since hotmail can only send file under 1000kb
vance_stevens: It's ok to send big files to me at that address
mysailing: but i can not send
mysailing: sorry, i can not use hotmail to send them. it is too big to sen
vance_stevens: hmmm, let's see, if there's file sharing here ...
vance_stevens: Pull down Friend, at the bottom, send file
mysailing: for yahoo mail too, it has file size limitation
vance_stevens: You mean, through yahoo messenger? Ok, how about ICQ, have that?
vance_stevens: know any ftp sites?
mysailing: sorry. i do not know.
vance_stevens: There are a couple of things you can do.
mysailing: i should input zip file ,
vance_stevens: That's one possibility
vance_stevens: Another is can get icq, at http://www.mirabilis.com
vance_stevens: another is start a free website and then upload your file to it
vance_stevens: then give me the url and I can download it
mysailing: ok, let me try
vance_stevens: A good one for that purpose is http://www.prohosting.com because it allows you to put files with almost any extension on your site
mysailing: if you icq, i need to download icq?
vance_stevens: yeah, you do
vance_stevens: It's a good program though. A lot of webheads are on it.
vance_stevens: It keeps records of your messages, nice program
mysailing: it is big ? i mean to download it?
vance_stevens: 5 megabytes
mysailing: it is too big, i need to download in midnight so that it would be faster
vance_stevens: Poor Sue ... how about opening a prohosting account? And using that for file storage that others can access?
vance_stevens: If they are rm files, you could use Geocities as well
vance_stevens: or Tripod etc etc
mysailing: it is not free web, it seems
vance_stevens: hmmm, it's free for me, but maybe because I got in early. Try yahoo-geocities
vance_stevens: http://www.geocities.com should redirect you
vance_stevens: http://geocities.yahoo.com/home/ <-- here's the correct address
vance_stevens: still free and you can use your yahoo id
mysailing: ok, i am signing up now
mysailing: how to upload a file?
vance_stevens: two ways, http or ftp. If not familiar with ftp then use the File Manager. Can you find that?
vance_stevens: ok, so you find the folder in your file manager you want to upload to, then import a file (something like that) and browse for it on your computer. You can upload more than one at a time.
mysailing: hope it can work well
vance_stevens: have you figured it out? Simple once you see the way.
vance_stevens: Do you need me to walk you through it?
mysailing: http://geocities.yahoo.com/filemanager , try it , i am not sure whether it is ok
vance_stevens: I can't go to your area unless you give me your password (don't do that!)
vance_stevens: You have to give me the url. That would be something like (let me see ...)
vance_stevens: http://www.geocities.com/mysailing/myvideo.rm ???
mysailing: it is better for me to think about it later. it does not work well now
vance_stevens: Did you upload the files to your space?
mysailing: yes, i use file manager to do it, but it does not show in hompage
vance_stevens: no there is no homepage yet. Just the files are there. What is the name of one of the files?
vance_stevens: ok, let me try to get it ...
vance_stevens: I think I'm getting it
vance_stevens: 50% there ... what are the other file names?
mysailing: how can you do that?
mysailing: the others are nothing, i just did them by mistakes
mysailing: i mean how can you know the file names?
vance_stevens: I see a portion of your face. I may have to get this from cache, or put the url in my windows media
vance_stevens: You told me it was Movie6.avi (the capital M is significant)
vance_stevens: I tried http://www.geocities/com/mysailing/Movie6.avi and was redirected to the correct url
mysailing: it is very big
mysailing: can you see it now?
vance_stevens: Now I plugged it into Windows Media Player, and yes, I see it. Nice
mysailing: it is terrible faces. i just tried how to work on the camera.
vance_stevens: Yeah, you changed your hair too. Good!!
vance_stevens: It's fun to communicate like this. How did you record the video?
vance_stevens: Anyone in webheads can now get your video by the way
mysailing: it is the camera manager's function
vance_stevens: You've put it on the web
mysailing: i need to delete it since it is too terrible.
vance_stevens: I can link it from your Webheads homepage
vance_stevens: Don't do that !!???
vance_stevens: It's great!!!!
mysailing: i would take bertter photoes later
vance_stevens: Ok, up to you
vance_stevens: When you have put one up you like, just send me the file name.
mysailing: ok, i see
mysailing: at least there is a little progress today too. thanks for your help
vance_stevens: Yes, now you know how. That's great.
mysailing: i am running to gym now, see you tomorrow
vance_stevens: ok, have a good workout

vance_stevens: can I put our conversation on the internet, the one where we worked on your web page?
vance_stevens: I'm planning to make a page for your video work
mysailing: you mean the video camera?
vance_stevens: I mean the last one where we made your geocities page?
mysailing: ok, it is fine. it is still there, i remember. I
vance_stevens: our yahoo chat ... I can leave off the exact url if you want to hide your video
vance_stevens: or do you want me to use the url that shows your video file, if it's still there?
mysailing: it is fine, no need to hide. just wonder others would be scared of my faces
vance_stevens: Well, this close to halloween, it should be ok
vance_stevens: Felix got me to go out and buy a web cam
vance_stevens: I guess we must have influenced you ...
vance_stevens: we learn from each other
mysailing: i know web camera, never know that how it does work, after visited yours, i started to collect information of it.
vance_stevens: hey, can you maybe send an email to webheads letting us know what information you collected?
vance_stevens: Like if you have any urls ... that would help others ??
mysailing: i have no any urls actually. I asked the computer stuffs in our company. They know a lot about this thing. Mostly i got information from them.
mysailing: he told me the price of web cam, function. then i went out to buy
vance_stevens: oh, ok ..
vance_stevens: yeah, I skipped most of that, just went out to buy
mysailing: if too expensive, i can not buy
vance_stevens: you sound like a smart shopper ... I got one that has 8 meg of memory and was about $125
mysailing: most of my urls, are university and shipyards
