[21:18] dennisk Ubuntu social event, perhaps?
[21:18] toddc   that is about all I have for tonight any questions or comments or other news or ideas?
[21:18] dennisk Release party?
[21:18] toddc   we should try a ubuntu hour get together somewhere
[21:19] toddc   release party will be oct 29 at the installfest
[21:20] toddc   Ubuntu recommends several 1 hour get together meets like at coffee shops to say and meet and ask questions
[21:20] dennisk Descend on a coffee shop and demo Ubuntu!
[21:20] toddc   but we set them up and post them on azloco
[21:21] toddc   and I always know where to find dennisk
[21:21] ACK-FIN +1
[21:21] toddc   welcome ACK-FIN
[21:22] ACK-FIN howdie
[21:22] toddc   dennisk want to help set one up there/
[21:22] toddc   I can help if they would let us
[21:23] ACK-FIN so, who's willing to b ring me some popsicles?
[21:23] toddc   ACK-FIN: tonight?
[21:23] ACK-FIN yes, now
[21:23] dennisk Best done when ASU is on break. Right now it's packed. Sat. am should work though.
[21:23] toddc   I will be in the hood around noon
[21:23] ACK-FIN I might not make it through the night without them
[21:24] Yorokobi        go to sleep ACK-FIN
[21:24] ACK-FIN ah, ok
[21:24] toddc   dennisk: saterdays are pretty full for me unless it is in the evening
[21:24] ACK-FIN but if I don't wake up you'll miss me
[21:25] ACK-FIN so are your saturdays?
[21:25] toddc   or any evening during the week would be fine for me also
[21:26] toddc   we should talk this week about more
[21:26] dennisk I'm sure we could show up any time.
[21:27] toddc   ok find a slow time and let me know and we will try to get it going on a regular basis
[21:28] ACK-FIN -1
[21:28] dennisk d'accord
[21:28] toddc   I was thinking like once a month in several places now for a west side or ???
[21:30] -->|    LuftHans (~lufthans@wsip-174-79-56-141.ph.ph.cox.net) has joined #Ubuntu-US-AZ
[21:30] Yorokobi        What's most central? Tempe, perhaps?
[21:30] ACK-FIN e mesa
[21:30] Yorokobi        
[21:30] toddc   the place we are talking about is east Tempe
[21:30] ACK-FIN 153 n 58th st, mesa is the center of everything
[21:31] dennisk Dreamland Villa?!
[21:31] toddc   but we should have several west asnd Tucson or north PHX ?
[21:32] ACK-FIN dennisk: pretty close
[21:32] dennisk Best places are where they is wifi and people with laptops. That way we can demo
[21:32] ACK-FIN and THEY have started showing up again
[21:33] toddc   we have members all around the state but since I do not have a list of active members with addresses it is hard to say where the most members are located
[21:34] [R]     tempe
[21:34] [R]     north tempe
[21:34] dennisk Online
[21:34] toddc   plus the Idea is to spread the word and help so several small short events could work well
[21:35] dennisk Won't hurt to include Portable Apps.
[21:36] toddc   all are online but getting new users on IRC seems to be hard to do
[21:36] toddc   would not need to be ubuntu but general linux open source chat ect
[21:36] dennisk They just need an IRC app for their phone.
[21:38] ACK-FIN is anyone here interested in an extremely nice SKS cheap?
[21:38] toddc   I do like the demo idea and have wanted to do some for the installfest
[21:38] dennisk I remember being in Fry's or Best Buy and the salesman was explaining to the couple that M$ Office was NOT the OS. Most people know little about computers.
[21:38] toddc   hoping to get several simple slideshows
[21:40] dennisk No weapons on IRC please.
[21:41] toddc   well we should think about ideas and bring them up next week and see if we can get something going
[21:41] ACK-FIN huh?
[21:41] toddc   LuftHans did you have any comments or news?
[21:41] ACK-FIN I'm licensed
[21:42] dennisk It's not this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SKS
[21:42] ACK-FIN and bonafied
[21:42] ACK-FIN dennisk: similar, but it's shorter being a paratrooper and it taked ak-47 magazines
[21:43] ACK-FIN it's been heavily modified
[21:43] toddc   thanks for coming tonight but I will be here a while if anyone needs help or has a question I will be here a while
[21:44] ACK-FIN kk
[21:45] dennisk Gute Nacht
