tucson end there
(09:10:12 PM) bluecat9: i know you guys have meeting preperations in
place but I really think the meeting should be available to everyone.
Why not use Skype?
(09:10:18 PM) slofgren: I was thinking you gys could meet up?
(09:10:32 PM) bluecat9: It's too difficult for some of us to break
away.. ;)
(09:10:34 PM) johnc4510: slofgren: that's an idea
(09:10:40 PM) slofgren: bluecat9: I have zero experiance with skype
(09:10:47 PM) slofgren: I am open to it though
(09:10:58 PM) ***johnc4510 says br24 myself and slofgren can discuss in
morning about call
(09:11:01 PM) bluecat9: slofgren, as do I but it only takes seconds to
start a conference call
(09:11:08 PM) br24: johnc4510, agreed
(09:11:12 PM) slofgren: someone will bneed to walk we through it because
I have no time for a learnig curve by then
(09:11:29 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: that would be ok, but not everyone
has skype and the capibilitly
(09:11:33 PM) bluecat9: I'm just stating that the meetings (like
everything else) should be open
(09:11:41 PM) wcrabtree left the room (quit: "Ex-Chat").

(09:13:50 PM) slofgren: I guess a bunch
(09:14:23 PM) slofgren: I was hoping to limit how many I call because i
was doing it on my companies dime
(09:14:24 PM) bluecat9: I am not complaining that I cannot attend, I am
simply saying that we need to keep our meetings open
(09:14:29 PM) bluecat9: using a medium all can use
(09:14:39 PM) ***johnc4510 says that meeting is open
(09:14:53 PM) ***johnc4510 says if you want to attend via conference

future calls
(09:15:26 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: is that ok
(09:15:26 PM) johnc4510: ?
(09:15:49 PM) ***johnc4510 says he can arrange for you to attend via
call if you want
(09:15:54 PM) slofgren: bluecat9 has a good point and we need to come up
with plans for things like this in the future
(09:15:59 PM) bluecat9: it's fine. I just want to ensure future meetings
are available to everyone, as long as they have a computer and internet
(09:16:29 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: then we will have to have someone who
can bring us up to date on skype
(09:16:55 PM) ***johnc4510 asks if anything else on this subject ?
(09:16:59 PM) bluecat9: I will learn it now ;p
(09:17:00 PM) slofgren: bluecat9: teach us next meeting and then we can
all try it

(09:17:51 PM) johnc4510: next is approval team discussion
(09:18:21 PM) ***johnc4510 says, or asks why more haven't volunteered
for projects?
(09:18:25 PM) johnc4510: :)
(09:18:39 PM) ***bluecat9 for one is not 100% clear on the process of
doing so
(09:18:55 PM) bluecat9: I'd also would like to see teams/projects
further defined :)
(09:19:05 PM) br24: bluecat9, lets get together and talk about skype
(09:19:12 PM) br24: we can add this to the Education team
(09:19:17 PM) bluecat9: It's hard to know what to join when the teams
are not defined
(09:19:19 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: go here and edit wiki page
(09:19:23 PM) johnc4510: to add your name
(09:19:24 PM) bluecat9: gotcha
(09:19:25 PM) bluecat9: ty
(09:19:35 PM) wcrabtree: Doing that right now :)
(09:19:37 PM) bluecat9: Can we further define our teams tho?
(09:20:06 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: have you read this page?
(09:20:07 PM) slofgren: johnc4510: I have not commited due to lack of
time right now not interest
(09:20:12 PM) bluecat9: johnc4510, yes
(09:20:16 PM) johnc4510: slofgren: np
(09:20:33 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: what do you think needs further
(09:20:59 PM) bluecat9: I am interested in 2 areas "education team" and
"computers for kids" but without further definition I don't know which
team I want to get involved with ;)
(09:21:32 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: comp4kids here:
(09:21:42 PM) bluecat9: I see 2 teams with "education" in the name and I
think are both of these teams focused on teaching/training?
(09:21:44 PM) johnc4510:
(09:21:55 PM) johnc4510:
(09:22:06 PM) johnc4510:
(09:22:18 PM) johnc4510:
(09:22:21 PM) johnc4510 left the room (quit: "Ex-Chat").
(09:22:26 PM) bluecat9: I think the education team should be focused on
teaching/training and the "recycling" team should be focused on just
that ;)
(09:22:29 PM) bluecat9: oops
(09:22:41 PM) johnc4510 [n=johnc@ip68-231-136-42.tc.ph.cox.net] entered
the room.

(09:23:30 PM) bluecat9: but on our main wiki there appears to be 2
education teams
(09:23:42 PM) br24: bluecat9, we can talk about the edu team after the
(09:23:51 PM) bluecat9: br24, right on
(09:24:04 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: right now we are talking of comp4kids
(09:24:27 PM) bluecat9: let me rephrase my comments to, the team names
should be revised to reflect teams focus
(09:24:27 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: it's a spin off from ed. team
(09:24:40 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: ok i can agree with that
(09:24:50 PM) bluecat9: and I would like to see all teams focus further
(09:24:55 PM) ***johnc4510 makes note to revise main wiki page
(09:25:04 PM) johnc4510: k
(09:25:19 PM) bluecat9: or perhaps just a GO on we are going with what
we have in the team wiki pages
(09:25:24 PM) bluecat9: :)
(09:25:39 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: you should make suggestions on
improving these items

(09:25:52 PM) johnc4510: k

(09:30:13 PM) slofgren: I want to promote more Local computer/LUG
(09:30:25 PM) br24: johnc4510, I will let you know when I hear back from
this LUG I found
(09:30:39 PM) slofgren: I think we should eb joining local clubs and
supporting them through this group
(09:30:50 PM) johnc4510: slofgren: ok
(09:31:09 PM) slofgren: I see your roll and an umbrella to support al
Arizona computer clubs
(09:31:24 PM) johnc4510: slofgren: so in the major cities we should join
the loco lugs
(09:31:31 PM) slofgren: I think your server project can offer support
for them and link to theri sites
(09:31:34 PM) SloggerKhan: sorry
(09:31:43 PM) slofgren: s/your/our
(09:31:52 PM) johnc4510: SloggerKhan: wait a sec

(09:33:04 PM) johnc4510: slofgren: np
(09:33:07 PM) slofgren: we would convert theri souls
(09:33:19 PM) slofgren: or we would be informative
(09:33:21 PM) johnc4510: slofgren: ahh now you are speaking my language
(09:33:24 PM) br24: johnc4510, I think trying to introduce & integrate
Ubuntu into local LUGs can increase out teams efforts
(09:33:26 PM) johnc4510: :)
(09:33:39 PM) ***johnc4510 says he likes these ideas
(09:33:41 PM) johnc4510: :)
(09:33:51 PM) slofgren: maybe step into a lnux acepting group and
advocate linux/ubuntu
(09:34:03 PM) slofgren: they might be will to join
(09:34:18 PM) slofgren: I think we could offer them some hosting and
(09:34:21 PM) johnc4510: slofgren: so i guess first we need to identify
lug groups?
(09:34:29 PM) johnc4510: slofgren: agreed
(09:34:45 PM) slofgren: I think local involve=ment is always good
(09:34:49 PM) johnc4510: k

(09:37:37 PM) johnc4510: k
(09:37:53 PM) johnc4510: SloggerKhan: if you need help i'm always

(09:38:11 PM) SloggerKhan: I'm working on setting up an inventory wiki
(09:38:19 PM) johnc4510: cool
(09:38:29 PM) bluecat9: SloggerKhan, nice
(09:38:38 PM) SloggerKhan: There have been a couple
(09:38:48 PM) SloggerKhan: of people expressing interest in donating
(09:38:54 PM) johnc4510: great
(09:39:02 PM) bluecat9: Aye. I have 3 or 4 machines for the kitty.
(09:39:10 PM) johnc4510: bluecat9: ty
(09:39:11 PM) johnc4510: :)
(09:39:27 PM) bluecat9: SloggerKhan, do they have to meet the minimum
specs outlined on the Comps4Kids wiki page?
(09:39:38 PM) SloggerKhan: No, those are open for discussion.
(09:39:45 PM) johnc4510: agreed
(09:39:49 PM) bluecat9: SloggerKhan, Okay. Than I have ~4. :)
(09:39:52 PM) SloggerKhan: It even says so on wiki.
(09:40:09 PM) ***johnc4510 says we need to start with what we can get he
(09:40:12 PM) johnc4510: :)
(09:40:17 PM) johnc4510: if ok with SloggerKhan
(09:40:34 PM) SloggerKhan: I'm thinking of changing the reqs from
hardware to ability reqs
(09:40:36 PM) bluecat9: If we're using donated PCs, let's just take
anything that will run Ubuntu :)
(09:40:45 PM) bluecat9: ..maybe even Xubuntu?
(09:40:49 PM) SloggerKhan: Like "able to run flash pluging"
(09:40:56 PM) SloggerKhan: or something
(09:40:57 PM) johnc4510: agreed
(09:41:03 PM) bluecat9: I installed Ubuntu on a PII 333 and it was slow
but it was okay..
(09:41:13 PM) bluecat9: with 196MB ram
(09:41:56 PM) SloggerKhan: We also need a way to establish a standard of
how we set them up, especially if we are keeping them all in their own
localities, as I think is the plan.
(09:42:02 PM) bluecat9: What about dropping the requirements and if
donated machines are sub-par we could just donate them to Salvation
Army, etc?
(09:42:13 PM) SloggerKhan: That's fine with me bluecat9
(09:42:19 PM) bluecat9: SloggerKhan, cool
(09:42:38 PM) SloggerKhan: I'd actually love to have some help to figure
the project out at this point.
(09:42:39 PM) bluecat9: SloggerKhan, if we want to take the work out of
it, we should just do a standard install with user/pass = ubuntu ?
(09:43:00 PM) johnc4510: SloggerKhan: anything else you want to discuss
(09:43:13 PM) SloggerKhan: Well, the thing that makes me think twice is
that I think kids will want/need educational software that isn't in
standard install.
(09:43:23 PM) SloggerKhan: And the families may or may not have
(09:43:38 PM) ***johnc4510 agrees with that
(09:43:50 PM) SloggerKhan: That's why I am hesitant about standard
(09:43:58 PM) johnc4510: edubuntu ?
(09:44:02 PM) SloggerKhan: Maybe standard install + repo disk?
(09:44:24 PM) ***johnc4510 asks what is repo disk
(09:44:29 PM) bluecat9: SloggerKhan, agreed, we can give them that on
(09:44:33 PM) SloggerKhan: repository on cd/dvd
(09:44:37 PM) johnc4510: ah
(09:44:40 PM) johnc4510: agreed
(09:44:56 PM) bluecat9: I like the idea of sticking with Ubuntu, tho vs
anything else
(09:45:04 PM) SloggerKhan: Me too.
(09:45:11 PM) bluecat9: such as xubuntu, kubuntu, etc
