   1 [03:00] <pleia2> ok, who all is here for the meeting?
   2 [03:00]  * eps waves
   3 [03:00] <MarkDude> Told folks in other Distros to go party with Ubuntu folks, since they have awesome local communities
   4 [03:01] <iheartubuntu> bows
   5 [03:01] <akk> o/
   6 [03:01] <MarkDude> \o meeting
   7 [03:01] <pleia2> ok, agenda here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Meetings/12February26
   8 [03:01] <philipballew> jumps up and down
   9 [03:02] <pleia2> the Ubuntu Global Jam is coming up on Friday-Sunday :) https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGlobalJam
  10 [03:02] <pleia2> so far our only Jam planned is one in Walnut Creek on Friday: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-california/1569/detail/
  11 [03:02] <philipballew> jono has come through once again
  12 [03:03] <pleia2> there is still time to plan stuff is anyone is interested :)
  13 [03:03] <pleia2> does anyone have questions about Global Jams?
  14 [03:04] <philipballew> if some people are unable to attend, is there a way we can participate in a global jam remotely?
  15 [03:05] <philipballew> without just doing bug stuff all on our own
  16 [03:05] <pleia2> at our berkeley events we hop on IRC and tell people what we're working on, I'm not sure what jono is planning
  17 [03:06] <pleia2> and no need to focus on bug stuff, these days global jams are about working together on any project
  18 [03:06] <pleia2> if we wanted we even could plan to all be on IRC at the same time and tackle something :)
  19 [03:06] <philipballew> who knows. That person is way to busy.
  20 [03:06] <philipballew> well we do all live in CA so the timing is right
  21 [03:07] <pleia2> I'm event planned out :( so if someone else wants to organize an in-channel event that'd be great
  22 [03:07]  * pleia2 is taking March off except for the Ubuntu Hour ;)
  23 [03:08] <philipballew> when is that ubuntu hour pleia2 ?
  24 [03:08] <Faqtotum> The hour of the pangolin is upon us!
  25 [03:08] <pleia2> philipballew: March 14th
  26 [03:08] <philipballew> alright!
  27 [03:09] <philipballew> 12.04 is coming up fast
  28 [03:09] <eps> Ubuntu 10.04.4 is out now
  29 [03:09] <pleia2> alright, if anyone wants to do an in-channel jam thing you're welcome to start planning, I can help out if anyone wants some direction
  30 [03:10] <philipballew> please. I'm already on ubuntu 12.10
  31 [03:10] <pleia2> Anyone have any announcements or anything else?
  32 [03:10] <iheartubuntu> how is 1204?
  33 [03:10] <iheartubuntu> 1110 is pretty solid
  34 [03:10] <philipballew> the SD ubuntu hour this week had 4 people
  35 [03:10] <philipballew> 04 is nice
  36 [03:10] <iheartubuntu> awesom
  37 [03:11] <pleia2> beta1 for 12.04 comes out on the 1st
  38 [03:12] <pleia2> when I was at BerkeleyLUG today I spoke with Michael Paoli about a Debian dinner during UDS and Jack about a possible tour of his workplace (has the 8th biggest supercomputer in the world, and it runs linux!)
  39 [03:12] <pleia2> so I started making a wiki page with ideas: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/UDS-Q
  40 [03:13] <iheartubuntu> does the computer have a first name? :)
  41 [03:14] <pleia2> maybe Jack will tell us on the tour!
  42 [03:15] <pleia2> iheartubuntu: any updates on the gaming night proposal? anything you need others to do?
  43 [03:15] <MarkDude> Yay, monster computer, will be nice to meet our new overlords
  44 [03:16] <Faqtotum> iheartubuntu: it's o-s-c-a-r
  45 [03:16] <iheartubuntu> i really havent had much time, but do want to still do something. there are new games popping up in ubuntu software center the past few months... The poker game is multiplayer and i was testing it... very nice
  46 [03:17] <iheartubuntu> not sure how many can play at once.... at least 10 at a time
  47 [03:17] <pleia2> cool, can you add some ideas to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/GameNights ? maybe a couple of us can try some out and see what we think
  48 [03:17] <iheartubuntu> there are more options now anyways since i first mentioned so thats a good thing
  49 [03:17] <pleia2> we can start small :) maybe just an hour or so with just a few of us participating
