[14:20:59] <slashtom> any ideas on how best to distribute the Ubuntu discs?

[14:25:46] <slashtom> maybe the best plan is to throw it out to the mailing list
[14:26:11] <airurando> slashtom: agreed
[14:26:32] * slashtom can send an email around asking who would like to distribute some discs, and how many they would like
[14:27:01] <airurando> maybe hit the mailing list and suggest attending Ubuntu Hour to pick up?
[14:27:49] <slashtom> aye, that'll work for those in the Dublin area
[14:28:09] <slashtom> airurando: i take it you mean the Dublin Ubuntu Hour
[14:28:42] <airurando> slashtom: yip apologies for the lack of clarity.
[14:28:45] <slashtom> as we have multiple Ubuntu hour's, we should specify which city they're in
[14:29:19] <airurando> yes
[14:29:48] <airurando> cork could also be a pickup if omalley82 agrees
[14:30:09] <slashtom> yep, we will post some down
[14:30:38] <slashtom> ebel_ is quiet, and using his phone.... so, if there anything else?

[14:38:09] <tdr112> sounds like a plan
[14:38:58] <slashtom> that does however require some local volunteer
[14:39:03] <ebel_> ok
[14:40:50] <omalley82> sounds great... so far i found 4 possible peers down here... but will see who will show up at the first ubuntu hour....
