May 04 21:02:52 <Mean-Machine>  anything for tonight's agenda?
May 04 21:04:14 <ebel>  Can't really think of anything.....
May 04 21:05:01 <Mean-Machine>  BOZG, czajkowski, delcoyote, Drazha[away], md5, ompaul, shortword?
May 04 21:05:25 <ebel>  Actually there were some people with cameras, does anyone know if any of them pics are online?
May 04 21:05:29 <ompaul>        Mean-Machine, then you were sitting beside me for a few mins
May 04 21:05:37 <ebel>  at the potd / hardy party that is.
May 04 21:05:52 <ebel>  might be good for publicity / marketing
May 04 21:06:12 <ompaul>        I was beside you telling the barman to give you the wrong food :)
May 04 21:07:01 <Mean-Machine>  ompaul, which table?
May 04 21:07:15 <ompaul>        to your right on the night
May 04 21:07:15 <Mean-Machine>  hmm...
May 04 21:07:20 <ebel>  He was in the middle in the black tshirt.
May 04 21:07:24 *       ebel stalks well
May 04 21:07:59 <Mean-Machine>  I do recall :)
May 04 21:08:06 <ompaul>        I had a blue shirt iirc
May 04 21:08:47 <ebel>  hmmm, musta been dark blue...
May 04 21:08:47 <Mean-Machine>  sure we'll meet again and say hello to each other in person ;-]
May 04 21:10:39 <Mean-Machine>  so I have only one thing to share/report, well maybe two
May 04 21:10:59 <Mean-Machine>  first is ubuntu-ie.org
May 04 21:11:24 <Mean-Machine>  we don't have access to configure the page
May 04 21:12:00 <Mean-Machine>  so I reported this as a bug on launchpad -> https://bugs.launchpad.net/loco-webhosting/+bug/226502
May 04 21:12:39 <Mean-Machine>  I'll be updating everyone on this matter through mailing list
May 04 21:12:52 <ebel>  Deadly. :)
May 04 21:13:14 <Mean-Machine>  I think there's also an option for subscribing
May 04 21:13:22 <Mean-Machine>  not sure
May 04 21:17:11 <Mean-Machine>  another thing: I ordered ubuntu CD mix pack for LoCos today, they'll be available for pick-up at Camara. more info on the mix-pach here -> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoGettingCds
May 04 21:18:20 <Mean-Machine>  *mix-pack
May 04 21:19:19 <ebel>  Cool.
May 04 21:21:27 <Mean-Machine>  ompaul, do u know anything about availability of last potd's pictures?
May 04 21:22:23 <ompaul>        no however check czajkowski's web site and also check for a bigbro on google
May 04 21:22:34 <ompaul>        his camera was in use by me
May 04 21:23:48 <Mean-Machine>  hmmm, maybe I'll just drop a line on the ILUG mailing list? or is that rude?
May 04 21:29:29 *       ebel shrugs
May 04 21:29:44 <ompaul>        it ain't rude
May 04 21:31:29 <Mean-Machine>  ok, another thing that I thought about is http://softwarefreedomday.org/   I know its very early, but I like to think/plan ahead
May 04 21:34:15 <ebel>  Yeah.
May 04 21:34:35 <ebel>  but yeah that is really early. :)
May 04 21:35:52 <Mean-Machine>  again, I think it should be organized together with ILUG... well, if they'd be interested of course
May 04 21:36:00 <Mean-Machine>  when do you think would be the best time to start talking about it?
May 04 21:36:12 <ebel>  IFSO aswell.
May 04 21:36:56 <Mean-Machine>  absolutely
May 04 21:37:31 <ebel>  hmmm i dunno. :)
May 04 21:37:57 <ebel>  depends what sort of things we could do.
May 04 21:38:10 <ebel>  we could start planning the intrepid ibex release party too. :P

May 04 21:41:42 <Mean-Machine>  alright, we'll come back to that again in 1/2 months time
May 04 21:43:38 <Mean-Machine>  anything else you want to discuss or share?
May 04 21:44:31 <ebel>  we should look into getting that free powered by ubuntu sticker deal going for ireland.
May 04 21:44:57 <ebel>  I believe happy_tux offered them guiness, they said they'd look into it when hardy was out.
May 04 21:45:54 <Mean-Machine>  it would be nice, alright
May 04 21:47:09 <ebel>  i'll drop happy_tux an email. haven't seen him round this parts in a while.
