I think that if everybody working the Ubuntu booth would be wearing some sort of Ubuntu apparel that would also be good. 42 [03:07] <eps> Do we want candy again (if not, what would take its place)? 43 [03:08] <pleia2> eps: I think so 44 [03:08] <pleia2> I shall bring the dishes 45 [03:08] <eps> Chocolate, not chocolate, loose, individually wrapped? 46 [03:09] <pleia2> the individually wrapped thing was good, scale flu considering :) 47 [03:10] <pleia2> no preference candy-wise though, I like candy, I like chocolate 48 [03:10] <philipballew> Some hand sanitizer for the booth for people who want to shake hands? 49 [03:10] <pleia2> yeah, I think that's on the list 50 [03:10] <philipballew> right 51 [03:10] <pleia2> (no one signed up to bring it yet though) 52 [03:10] <eps> Don't look at me; TSA won't let me take that on the plane. 53 [03:11] <pleia2> I might see if I have the one from last year ;) 54 [03:11] <eps> Does it have an expiration date? 55 [03:11] <pleia2> hopefully richard will have the ubucon site up soon too, I emailed him last week to offer some assistance 56 [03:11] <pleia2> yeah, but I think it's a few years out 57 [03:11] <philipballew> I also got cd's 58 [03:11] <philipballew> about 200 desktop and server for 12.04 59 [03:11] <pleia2> 12.04? 60 [03:12] * pleia2 nods 61 [03:12] <philipballew> they are trying to get rid of them I think. 62 [03:12] <pleia2> didn't you read nhaines' blog post? ;) 63 [03:12] <pleia2> yeah 64 [03:12] <philipballew> I glanced. :) 65 [03:12] <eps> Are they original 12.04 or a recent point release? 66 [03:12] <pleia2> I don't think they press point releases 67 [03:13] <eps> Which means no hardware enablement stack. :-( 68 [03:13] <philipballew> eps, People do not care what release it is. They want an official CD because it says Ubuntu on it. 69 [03:13] <philipballew> People already are gonna be running Ubuntu. 70 [03:14] <philipballew> few people try Ubuntu for the first time because they got a CD from a linux show. 71 [03:14] <philipballew> but that is just what I would think. 72 [03:14] <holstein> yeah.. too many variables 73 [03:14] <eps> That's not my attitude when I visit the Fedora booth. 74 [03:14] <holstein> best case, they put it in in windows and read some autorun thing 75 [03:15] <philipballew> eps, Fedora does flash drives now iirc. 76 [03:15] <holstein> i just wanted a real one 77 [03:15] <philipballew> holstein, I can see that. 78 [03:15] <eps> Flash drives cost $$$. CD/DVD media is cheap. 79 [03:15] <holstein> i got a few 9.10 server cd's from akgraner back in the day.. i was stoked :) 80 [03:16] <holstein> then, i get a stack of 12.04 desktop ones i gave out 81 [03:16] <philipballew> eps, si amigo. 82 [03:16] <philipballew> holstein, I think the peple who take them from a linux event might give them out to their friends 83 [03:17] <holstein> yeah, i mean, we already have access. or have already used them 84 [03:17] <pleia2> anyway, 12.04 is what we have, we don't really have the resources to change that 85 [03:17] <philipballew> yeah, true. 86 [03:17] <holstein> i think 12.04 is a good call 87 [03:17] <holstein> its not a bad call 88 [03:17] <pleia2> we'll just explain that it's from 2012 and they can directly upgrade to 14.04 when it comes out in april 89 [03:17] <philipballew> true. I think that if someone wants to install a dofferent version they can install their own, and we can even show them how. 90 [03:17] <pleia2> yeah 91 [03:17] <rww> could always offer to burn 13.10 to USB stick, i think we've done that before 92 [03:18] <rww> or 12.04.whateveritis 93 [03:18] <philipballew> rww, I could bring a flash drive with all the iso's on it they can barrow if they want to copy it. 94 [03:18] <pleia2> yeah, someone bringing isos would be good 95 [03:18] <eps> 12.04.4 LTS by then 96 [03:18] <pleia2> philipballew: great 97 [03:18] <holstein> i have a user in my LUG trying to get with me to "update her system".. says she cant do wifi/skype/libreoffic.. someone else in the LUG set her up with a non-lts release, and im suspicous that that is the issue 98 [03:18] <pleia2> philipballew: want to add that to the wiki 99 [03:18] <rww> philipballew: or just stick it in the computer i will be bringing and dd 100 [03:18] <pleia2> ? 101 [03:18] <rww> philipballew: but yeah 102 [03:18] <rww> i'll probably have some too 103 [03:18] <pleia2> nice 104 [03:18] <philipballew> pleia2, sure 105 [03:18] <pleia2> ok, anything else re: scale? 106 [03:19] <eps> Just the usual request ... if any locals have, e.g., Carl's Jr. coupons to bring them 107 [03:20] * pleia2 nods 108 [03:20] <pleia2> #topic team election 109 [03:20] <pleia2> #link https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-us-ca/2014-January/002356.html 110 [03:20] <darthrobot`> Title: [[Ubuntu-US-CA] Ubuntu California LoCo leadership election] 111 [03:20] <pleia2> jyo sent out the ballot a few days ago 112 [03:21] <pleia2> if you're in the https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-california team and have a public email address but don't have a ballot, contact him :) 113 [03:21] <darthrobot`> Title: [Ubuntu California in Launchpad] 114 [03:21] <eps> I don't believe I ever received a ballot, but given that there appear to be exactly three candidates for three positions, it's pretty much a foregone conclusion? 115 [03:21] <pleia2> ..of course it's a vote of 3 people for 3 spots, but it's good for the team to get used to this process 116 [03:21] <rww> stupid question: why are we having an election to put 3... oh, okay 117 [03:22] <pleia2> eps: you don't have a public email address on launchpad 118 [03:22] <philipballew> rww, because Elections are all the rage these days. 119 [03:22] <eps> pleia2: I'm not convinced that's a bad thing. 120 [03:23] <pleia2> eps: sure, just means we don't have a way to send you a ballot 121 [03:23] <pleia2> if you want one, just show jyo your launchpad page and give him your address :) 122 [03:24] <pleia2> the poll will close tomorrow 123 [03:24] <pleia2> #topic Any other business 124 [03:24] <pleia2> anything else before we wrap up for the evening? 125 [03:24] <holstein> sorry folks.. i didnt realize you were having a meeting when i was chattin earlier.. cheers! 126 [03:25] <pleia2> hehe 127 [03:25] <eps> Any Ubuntu Hours coming up? 128 [03:25] <rww> SF next/this week, I think 129 [03:25] <pleia2> ah yes, on wednesday 130 [03:25] <pleia2> http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-california/2663-ubuntu-hour-san-francisco/ 131 [03:26] <darthrobot`> Title: [Ubuntu Hour San Francisco | Ubuntu LoCo Team Portal] 132 [03:26] <pleia2> no debian dinner planned (did one last month, and I'm too tired this week) 133 [03:27] <rww> pleia2: how big is box o' scale stuff? 134 [03:27] <rww> BARTable size, or...? 135 [03:27] <pleia2> rww: bartable 136 [03:27] <pleia2> philipballew has a banner+tablecloth down south now, so no need to bring the ones I have here for once 137 [03:27] <rww> will grab it wednesday then, if it'll be ready by then 138 [03:27] <rww> if not we can figure something else out 139 [03:27] <pleia2> sure, I'll put it together before wednesday :) 140 [03:29] <pleia2> alright, thanks for coming everyone 141 [03:30] <pleia2> #endmeeting
