<Dazed_75> Has anyone heard from Xorrito regarding a confirmation of a date for the next Tucson Ubuntu Hour?
<toddc> i is supposed to be a new location but no comfrmation
<Dazed_75> Hmmm, I am hesitant to announce anything for it then
<Dazed_75> Since Ubuntu/Canonical will no longer make cd/dvd for other than LTS to teams, we do need to decide if we want to design and make them 
<Dazed_75> with covers etc or drop them for other than LTS versions.
<toddc> he has tried to contact me on irc but i  missed him
<Dazed_75> and I have no updates for job listings so I don't want to post ones that are OLD.  XHans or toddc have any new ones?
<Dazed_75> Also jason has been doing this so I have no Android pick or Linux app.  Hopefully we will be back on track next week
<toddc> not from here or now i am still just on my phone
