   1 [03:01] <pleia2> ok, meeting time, who all is here for it?
   2 [03:01]  * eps waves
   3 [03:03] <pleia2> I guess everyone is still out enjoying 2012 :)
   4 [03:03] <pleia2> hey eps
   5 [03:03] <eps> Hey Lyz
   6 [03:04] <MarkDude> \o
   7 [03:04] <pleia2> well, we can have a quick meeting then :)
   8 [03:04]  * MarkDude is here ready to talk about how those Mayans were WRONG
   9 [03:04] <MarkDude> (hopefully)
  10 [03:04] <pleia2> haha, ubuntu stuff first
  11 [03:04] <pleia2> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Meetings/12January01
  12 [03:05] <pleia2> so our only agenda item is SCALE10x coming up later this month (just 3 weeks away!)
  13 [03:05] <pleia2> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CaliforniaTeam/Projects/Scale10x
  14 [03:05] <pleia2> our wiki page is coming together, we have a few booth volunteers, I'll be making sure we have all the items on our list
  15 [03:05] <pleia2> I requested the CDs today (hopefully they can get them to us on time), and Darkwing has the conference pack that he wasn't able to use for the Libertopia event
  16 [03:07] <pleia2> we have our booth assignment (booth #4) and all the conference paperwork, so we're good to go on the SCALE side
  17 [03:07] <eps> Is there a floor plan somewhere?
  18 [03:07] <pleia2> the exhibitor pack came with one, I can email it to you
  19 [03:08] <eps> I was just surprised it wasn't in an obvious place on their web site.
  20 [03:09] <eps> Can you be more specific about your requests for a network switch and ethernet cables?
  21 [03:09] <ariley> happy new year all!
  22 [03:09] <pleia2> eps: such as?
  23 [03:09] <pleia2> speed doesn't matter, it'll all be slow
  24 [03:09] <eps> Do you need gigabit, or is 10/100 OK?
  25 [03:10] <pleia2> ok, I'll add that to the wiki page
  26 [03:10] <eps> What cable lengths are you looking for?
  27 [03:10] <pleia2> ok, updated, 10+ ft
  28 [03:11] <pleia2> (that will give us a lot of slack, but better that than not!
  29 [03:12] <nhaines> eps: the SCALE floorplan is available in the printed programs that are handed out during the event.
  30 [03:12] <pleia2> thanks eps
  31 [03:13] <eps> Does CD sleeve artwork need to be updated?
  32 [03:13] <pleia2> nope, it has 11.10 on it
  33 [03:13] <pleia2> it'll need to be updated once 12.04 comes out though
  34 [03:14]  * pleia2 doublechecks that
  35 [03:15] <nhaines> This might be an excellent time to update it, though, because then overprints can be used in the future.
  36 [03:15] <pleia2> yeah, good idea
  37 [03:15] <eps> Is there anything we need to know about Ubucon?
  38 [03:16] <pleia2> adding that to my todo list now
  39 [03:16] <nhaines> I would still accept an extra speaker, but everything is proceeding normally.
  40 [03:17] <pleia2> Darkwing said he got word from jono that we could get 300 or so CDs from Canonical's shipit (or whatever it's called for approved teams now), hopefully reducing our need to burn a lot, but his internet access has been spotty and I haven't heard from him, so I just went ahead and requested that many from shipit directly, we'll see how it goes
  41 [03:17] <pleia2> I might follow up with jono on Tuesday when he's back to work
  42 [03:17] <pleia2> cool, thanks nhaines
  43 [03:18] <pleia2> for anyone who hasn't booked their hotel room yet - conference rates are at $109/night but the site told me I had to book by Jan 5th
  44 [03:19] <pleia2> so if you're waiting, don't wait too long :)
  45 [03:20] <eps> If you're staying at the Hilton, you might want to register for this promotion: http://www.hhonors.com/MorePoints
  46 [03:20] <pleia2> thanks eps
  47 [03:21] <pleia2> I'll be hosting an Ubuntu Hour next week in SF, on the 11th: http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-california/1469/detail/
  48 [03:21] <pleia2> anyone have any other comments, announcements, anything?
  49 [03:22]  * MarkDude wants folks to keep eye out for pangolin suit
  50 [03:22] <pleia2> oh my :)
  51 [03:22] <MarkDude> That is all from me. Looking forwad to seeing everyone at Scale
  52 [03:23] <pleia2> thanks MarkDude
  53 [03:24] <pleia2> ok, I think we'll wrap this up then
  54 [03:24] <pleia2> thanks everyone! Happy New Year :)
