Started logging meeting in #ubuntu-ie
[14:04:25] * ebel wonders if we'll get any more... decent enough crowd here as it is.
[14:04:38] <czajkowski> heh
[14:05:13] <ebel> Right well if you're here and being in the meeting, say "PRESENT" so we have an idea of who's here, please
[14:05:14] <ebel> PRESENT
[14:05:18] <czajkowski> PRESENT
[14:05:18] <ZachK18> PRESENT
[14:05:21] <lau1> present
[14:05:41] <lau1> hope it's not case sensitive
[14:05:54] * ZachK18 laughs at laul
[14:06:30] <lau1> it's a one not a "l"
[14:06:35] <ebel> :P
[14:07:15] <czajkowski> ebel: perhaps start with my topic till mean-nachine arrives?
[14:07:35] <ebel> yeah
[14:07:44] <ebel> The wiki page for this meeting is here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrishTeam/IRCMeetings/2009-09-16
[14:08:09] <ebel> When we announce a meeting, we create a wiki page and people can put topics on there that we're going to discuss
[14:08:26] <ebel> Mean-Machine, who isn't here right now, had entered the first 2 topics,
[14:08:33] <ebel> so we'll go onto the next one.
[14:08:40] <ebel> [TOPIC] Release Party
[14:08:53] <czajkowski> right so release is due soon for Karmic Koala
[14:08:56] <ebel> which was added by czajkowski
[14:08:57] <czajkowski> 28th October
[14:09:04] <czajkowski> and I'm wondering what folks would like to do
[14:09:10] <czajkowski> last time we went for a chinese buffet
[14:09:12] <czajkowski> then drinks
[14:09:18] <czajkowski> do folks want to do the same?
[14:09:22] <czajkowski> or try something different
[14:09:27] <czajkowski> but we need to start to plan this now
[14:09:29] <czajkowski> thoughts?
[14:10:02] <ebel> 28th October is a Wednesday
[14:10:16] <ebel> that's when 9.10 (aka Karmic Koala) is out
[14:10:57] <lau1> ok for me (chinese and a pint ;) )
[14:11:09] <ebel> we could do something on the wednesday or thursday or friday or saturday
[14:11:52] <czajkowski> [link] http://pix.ie/czajkowski/album/341386
[14:12:23] <ebel> that was jimmy chungs, right?
