DanVenture has joined this room

Matt1: Hello Dan!

DanVenture: Don’t fall over! Yes, it’s Dan. Not even right on time, but EARLY.

Rush has left this room


DanVenture: And now, Rush rushes to leave.

DanVenture: Or maybe fell over.

DanVenture: Meantime, maybe that network issue he mentioned really is that bad.

Matt1: He’s having internet issues, but I like the way you think too, lol

DanVenture: You see, once you get a reputation it’s hard to live down.

DanVenture: However, since my day job involves networks, it is possible I have some pointers that might help Rush.

Matt1: I’m setting up my counter…..just in case, lol

Rush2 has joined this room

Matt1: Ever since working from home with COVID, we got a booster and love it

Rush2: I’ll take those pointers, DV!

Matt1: wb, Rush

Rush2: I’ll be going from phone to pc and back!

Rush2: Does the booster connect to my computer?

Matt1: No, to your modem

mda19083 has joined this room

Matt1: Hello Philly!

mda19083: Hello to all my fellow Chan Chatters

DanVenture: I assume the modem is too far to run a cable from the PC?

Rush: A home outlet, say in a hallway, etc., Matt?

Rush: Hello, MDA!

Matt1: Yes

Rush: Welcome!

Rush: AH!

Rush: That sounds pretty easy!

Matt1: I did it, soooooo

Rush: Something even I can do!


DanVenture: Matt’s suggestion is good.

Rush: So, I have my phone as my “lifeboat” tonight!

Rush: I’ll get that!

Matt1: Our studs in wall are aluminum and was a real pain…..Really helped

Rush: Would one be able to get one at say a Walmart or Target?

Matt1: Yep

Matt1: Got ours at Best Buy

Rush: Good!

DanVenture: Agreed, Matt. Many people overlook that possibility.

DanVenture: of metal interference.

Rush: Yes, Matt.

Rich Maine: Aha, will have to check that and poor Tommy gets worked over

Rush: He gets roughed up in “City in Darkness” too.

Rush: Ming Toy…

Phil & Mrs Phil: How’s he know it’s a boy pigeon?

Louise: Don’t ask Phil

Phil & Mrs Phil: I love this inside the taxi view

Rush: Maybe Ming Toy laid an egg?

Mike in DC: There is an Army manual that teaches them how to identify boys and girls…

Rush: CC arrives…the insults begin…

Dona: lol

Godwinshelley2: Which Chan film has Charlie attending a reunion of some kind? Husband asked

DanVenture: May need revision, Mike, due to current gender discussions in society.

Rush: Rooms $7.50 in today’s money…

Hounder: I think City in darkness maybe


Mike in DC: True, Dan. May have to have “they” pigeons

Louise: What kind of business can Madame S do in that small town?

Mike in DC: Isn’t Charlie going to a police convention in “New York?”

Rush: “Man without enemies like dog without fleas…”

mda19083: creepy lady from dead men tell

Phil & Mrs Phil: I’ll bet that hotel owner doesn’t do much business. Quite an attitude.

Mike in DC: For someone in the hospitality business, this hotel guy isn’t very welcoming…

Nothere: O.k. you guys mut be sick of me saying it, but go away Saturna.

Louise: Watson King

Hounder: He must do enough to afford that fancy watch chain he’s wearing

Nothere: Pardon me while I peer suspiciously out the window for no reason.

Godwinshelley2: Yes we think “City in Darkness”

Dona: I travel with more than that much luggage when i go for 1 night.

Nothere: Well he only has the one suit.

Louise: Dona, I have more than that in my everyday purse

Mike in DC: Right, NT. And the dragon PJs. What else does a man need?

Nothere: You have a whole suit in your purse Louise? That must be some purse.

Dona: I’m right there with you Louise

Hounder: Never noticed before, the windows slide back and forth instead of rolling up and down

sarabell2: Louise knows how to pack

Rush: Sorry…I received a phone call.

Rush: Back now!

Nothere: CIA or KGB Rush?

mda19083: i believe this set was used in the basil rathbone Hound of the Baskervilles

Phil & Mrs Phil: Manderly needs to smoke some medicinal marijuana

Louise: I am driking a glass of wine for him

mda19083: maybe his physician can prescribe it

Nothere: he acted strange when upset. Isn’t that odd?

Rush has joined this room

Nothere: It’s an impractical jok?

Nothere: joke even

mda19083: rush 3?

Phil & Mrs Phil: Oh no you won’t

Nothere: Who won’t what? I wasn’t even there.

Rush2: I wonder why “medical marijuana ” can’t be prescribed like other drugs in pill form through a pharmacy…IF it’s for actual MEDICAL reasons!

Rush: Computer’s back.

Rush: Swithing to PC!

mda19083: i’m told it is more fun to smoke it

Rush: AH!

Rush: BINGO!!!

Nothere: No comment I know nothing about it.

Nothere: B27 B27

mda19083: neither do i NT

Louise: “Jim”

Rush: I know enough not to use it.

Phil & Mrs Phil: I can’t figure this part out. She doesn’t know Watson King but she acts like she does?

Rush2: Jimmy’s turn for abuse!

Rush2: I know enough not to use it.

mda19083: creepy lady again

Rush: Jimmy and Mme. Saturnia arrive…

Phil & Mrs Phil: Um..Rush, you wrote that already? You buzzed?

Phil & Mrs Phil

Rush: Her predictions seem to ring true!

Nothere: Lose her Jimmy. Lose her.

Rush: I am happy with life in unaltered format.

Rush: Milton Parsons.

mda19083: i get high on life

Rush: Yes!

Louise: That is a mouth full of teeth

Godwinshelley2: Yea! Milton!!

Phil & Mrs Phil: People keep dropping in. Manderly must be near apoplectic.

Rush: Yes, GS!

Rush: Milton gets around!

Phil & Mrs Phil: He was in a movie called “The Monster that Challenged the World.”

Mike in DC: I don’t think he’s fully recovered from his treasure cruise…still a little bonkers.

Rush: The original “Uncle Milty”!

Godwinshelley2: Radio, Film and Television. Wonder if he was on the stage too?

Rush: Probably.

Rush: Interesting shadow to Jimmy’s right as he epproached the open window.

Rush: Approached.

Rush: Mme. Saturnia looks through the apothecary.

Rush: Watch the head movement here.

Nothere: Neared. Closed in on. Stepped towars.

mda19083: looking for the eye of newt

Rush: On the supposed dummy.

Rush: MDA: 🙂

Nothere: Man who sit on tack better off.

Rush: Yes, NT!

Rush: A preview of speech to come!

Nothere: It’s next to the tounge of frog. Over the shel with wing of bat.

Rush2 has left this room

Rush: Don’t drink it!

mda19083: yes nt

Rush: Too late!

Godwinshelley2: There goes Milton!!

Rush: Yes.

Matt1: <tin can>

Hounder: Wonder if the cobwebs are real or manufactured for atmosphere for the house

Nothere: No I always slam my head into the table during dinner.

mda19083: it must have been something he ate

DanVenture: Just spent a delightful 20 minutes learning about the real “Castle in the Desert” aka “Scotty’s Castle. Who knew??

Rush2 has joined this room

Rush has left this room

Rush2: Yes, Hounder!

Nothere: There gonna kill him for being late on icebox payments? Remind me not to shop at that store.

Rush2: Yes, DV!

Rush2: That would have been the influence for THIS castle!

Godwinshelley2: That’s what we forgot to add to the architecture! A Poison Room

mda19083: mapuchari perhaps?

Rush has joined this room


Rush: Better late than never…

Phil & Mrs Phil: A bit premature nonetheless.

Rush: And, with a n asterisk!

Rush: YES!

Nothere: Tetriagine, tagara. When Chan is around avoid any drug that starts with T.

Godwinshelley2: Isn’t it late to lock the door now!?

mda19083: yes nt

Rush: Listen to Mme. Saturnia…

Phil & Mrs Phil: So ah..where is Mme. Saturnia off to?

Rush: tagara weed (tagara) – (Sanskrit) A slightly hairy, tufted herb with thick horizontal rootstocks that contains a sweet smelling essential oil. Tagara (Indian valerian) is prescribed as a remedy for hysteria, hypochondria, nervous unrest, and emotional troubles. The drug contains a group of iridoid or monoterpenic derivatives, known as valepotriates which are useful as tranquilizers and sedatives. An iridoid ester glycoside designated as valerosidatum (isovaleryl glucoside) has also been isolated.

Nothere: Man cannot avoid destiny, but hecan try.

Rush: He sure CAN!

Louise: don’t drag Juliet into this

Rush: 🙂

Rush: Nor Romeo, either!

Rush2 has left this room

Rush2 has joined this room

mda19083: the candle budget at manderley castle must be exorbitant

Rush has left this room

Godwinshelley2: The valerian brewed in the US is said to smell like boiled sweat socks. So that must be a very distant relative.

Rush2: Back on my phone!

Rush2: Crazy night at my end!

Godwinshelley2: Power outage or bad computer?

Louise: GS: not very appetizing

Mike in DC: William Tell with the crossbow there!

Rush2: Close call there!

Godwinshelley2: Yeah – they do consider it good to relax folks

Louise: Glamour Boy

Rush2: Weak modem signal, GS

Phil & Mrs Phil: Destruction of government property!

Godwinshelley2: The fun of new locations

Rush has joined this room

Mike in DC: William Tell, Jr. in action

Phil & Mrs Phil: I love that line…”obvious not meant for pigeon.”

mda19083: do we use the can for death of ming toy

Mike in DC: perhaps a small can?

Godwinshelley2: Gee – wrong again

Rush2: We did earlier

Rush has left this room

DanVenture: How long was the murderer waiting out there on the off-chance that Chan opened the window??

Godwinshelley2: lightly oriental theme for a bit

Mike in DC: Very patient murderer?

Nothere: No one here but us ghosts go away.

Rush has joined this room

mda19083: dr creem was a patient murderer

Mike in DC: Zzzzzz. Zzzzzzz.

Godwinshelley2: Rush you have that revolving door on autopilot today

Rush: Back on PC…for now…

Rush: Yes!

Rush: The oingpong match continues for me!


Nothere: Rush. The whole using centurie old tech is in the movie. You aren’t supposed to do it for real.

Hounder: Wow rush. Yourmove really seems to have angered the gremlins

Godwinshelley2: Egyptian influence in dress?

Rush2: Sort of an ancient Egyptian influence?

Louise: Take back that can

Rush2: Yes!

Louise: CANS

Nothere: It was a fak can.

Rush2: Madame Saturnian was right!

Godwinshelley2: Were there big Egyptian exhibits touring in 1941?

mda19083: 2 cans

Godwinshelley2: If I remember the year correctly

mda19083: juliet again

Rush2: Probably not, GS, as the war was going on in Europe

Nothere: The eternal problem. If we don’t can people will get suspicious. If we do are we dishonoring the sacered goat lunch?

Louise: FRAUD is crime…just saying

PaulM has left this room

Godwinshelley2: Oh no – Paul is gone too

Rush2: BUT the earlier influence may not have totally died out by 1942.

Mike in DC: Jimmy!

Godwinshelley2: 1942 – didn’t we start the African campaign then – maybe that

mda19083: jimmy chan in can

Nothere: By Anubis the power of ancient Egypt shall never die.

Rush2: The mania following the King Tut discovery in the ’20s might have still echoed 20 years later.
