  43 [03:16] <pleia2> thanks :)
  44 [03:17] <philipballew> pleia2, if its easier, I can grab them when I am in northern california this month?
  45 [03:17] <pleia2> philipballew: sure, if that works for you
  46 [03:17] <pleia2> both the banner and tablecloth are in a big tube, I've had good luck with checking it on planes (it comes out with the oversized luggage)
  47 [03:17] <pleia2> or you could ship it to yourself
  48 [03:18] <philipballew> yeah, I have an extra suitcase with sw I can check, and Ill be in the bay area this week i think.
  49 [03:18] <pleia2> cool
  50 [03:18] <pleia2> I'll be around :)
  51 [03:18] <pleia2> we don't have any plans to use them in the next couple months, so you're welcome to them whenever
  52 [03:19] <philipballew> the lisa Canonical people would not let me have their banner...
  53 [03:19]  * philipballew asked
  54 [03:19] <pleia2> lol
  55 [03:19] <pleia2> they told me they didn't believe you when you said you'd give me a mug ;)
  56 [03:19] <pleia2> they were happy to hear you came through
  57 [03:19] <pleia2> "uh huh, yeah, 'for elizabeth' right"
  58 [03:19] <philipballew> I thought they seemed odd when they handed it to me.
  59 [03:20] <pleia2> hehe
  60 [03:20] <philipballew> If they knew there community council members they would know!
  61 [03:20] <pleia2> grantbow: do you know any artists we can reach out to for tshirt design?
  62 [03:20] <grantbow> nobody in mind yet
  63 [03:21] <pleia2> ok, I'll ask around and circulate it on social media a bit more
  64 [03:21] <grantbow> ok, thanks
  65 [03:21] <philipballew> tweet something and ill rt it
  66 [03:21] <pleia2> ok, I'll do that tomorrow (more people on twitter on the weekdays)
  67 [03:21] <pleia2> (avoiding work, probably)
  68 [03:22] <philipballew> unlike me, some people stop tweeting
  69 [03:22] <pleia2> you tweet more
  70 [03:22] <pleia2> ok, anyone else have anything?
  71 [03:23] <pleia2> the silicon valley folks still haven't been updating our resources for meetings so you still need to log into meetup.com for event details, but I've been trying to tweet them when I notice them
  72 [03:23] <pleia2> the mt view one is coming up on thursday
  73 [03:23] <pleia2> one == ubuntu hour
  74 [03:24] <philipballew> SD ubuntu hour went well
  75 [03:25] <pleia2> doesn't look like we have anything else on the schedule until next month
  76 [03:25] <pleia2> yes! that was fun :)

  79 [03:25] <philipballew> thanks for coming pleia2
  80 [03:25] <pleia2> I got to talk to a fellow I've only ever conversed with via email, he is interested in working on the ubuntu-learning project which we're trying to revive
  81 [03:26] <pleia2> so, win \o/
  82 [03:26] <pleia2> former teacher, so he actually knows what he's doing with this education stuff :)
