Since my previous post generated a laugh, here is an actual transcript of the singles chat from 7/15/2000:
Andrew.. test 1
Andrew.. A stitch in time saves nine.
Andrew.. rest 2
Andrew.. Once burned, twice shy.
Andrew.. test 3
Andrew.. A rising tide raises all boats.
This is the unedited, complete transcript from 5/29/1999:
Andrew.. Once again, I am pleased to say that we had no disagreements or unseemly quarrels this week.
Andrew.. I commend the civil behavior of the participants in this conference, and with that, declare the proceedings adjorned until Thursday night at 10 PM.
Andrew.. Adjourned, that is.
Finally, here is the original, unredacted chat transcript from 7/15/1999:
Andrew.. I've warned everyone once about the crowding. Now, please, enter one at a time, like ladies and gentlemen. Thank you.
Andrew.. Well, folks, I'm going to have to cut you off at this point.
Andrew.. The chat is scheduled to end at 11 PM, and I'm going to end it even if I have to fight you all. Now, be quiet for a few minutes.
Andrew.. Thanks. See you all next week. Take care. Quo adporinum.
Oddly enough, I don't even remember what "quo adporinum" means, even though the transcript indicates that I wrote it-- but that's why we save official transcripts.
THIS is hilarious!
