    20:08:41 <ebel> #link http://loco.ubuntu.com/meetings/ubuntu-ie/382/detail/

    20:09:03 <ebel> there isn't really much on agenda, bar new release stuff

    20:09:13 <ebel> so first topic is "review"

    20:09:55 <ebel> which is just about release party, i'll move that around

    20:09:58 <ebel> and move to

    20:10:09 <ebel> #topic CDs for new release

    20:10:20 <ebel> I just remembered about that now.

    20:10:26 <ebel> I haven't ordered them yet for our loco

    20:10:38 <ebel> I'll do that this evening (after meeting)

    20:11:04 <ebel> then we'll get ~250 professionally pressed CDs of the new release from canonical

    20:11:08 <airurando> action yourself Wink ;)

    20:11:10 <mokmeister> What's the story there? I thought the ISO was 750MB or so? DVD rather CD methinks

    20:11:24 <ebel> #action ebel to order cds this evening 20:11:24 * meetingology ebel to order cds this evening

    20:11:43 <Victor9098> I saw that the store has them for individual purchase to (5 for £5) Its a CD sized iso

    20:11:51 <mokmeister> ok

    20:11:56 <ebel> mokmeister: not sure. but I do recall there being an order page for this release, so presume there is *some* discs

    20:12:14 <ebel> (when i say CD I mean 'optical disk' which might include DVD Smile :) )

    20:12:23 <Victor9098> Wink ;)

    20:12:30 <mokmeister> Smile :)

    20:13:00 <ebel> any Questionss on CDs?

    20:13:33 <tdr112> nope

    20:13:49 <mokmeister> not any more! Wink ;)

    20:13:49 <airurando> no

    20:14:04 <imgarysmith> I was supposed to get cds on the last round and never did

    20:14:06 <zmoylan> no, don't even have an optical drive at the mo

    20:14:14 <imgarysmith> for my college

    20:14:37 <ebel> related to that we need to talk about distribution, but I wanna get onto the release party since we have more concrete ideas

    20:14:48 <ebel> imgarysmith: ah yes, you never got back to me after XMas

    20:15:30 <airurando> imgarysmith: you need to keep prodding ebel to get results

    20:15:45 <ebel> Sorry for any mix-up

    20:15:48 <imgarysmith> i emailed a few times

    20:16:11 <imgarysmith> are there any more laying around, networking lecturer needs a few

    20:16:37 <ebel> I sent lots of emails to lots of people about CDs and didn't get replies from lots of people, the interest seemed much lower this round

    20:16:55 <ebel> No more CDs left… (threw the last few in the bin ~2 weeks ago)

    20:17:24 <ebel> hmmm.... I don't have any emails after 20th December 2011 from you imgarysmith...

    20:17:30 <airurando> I think 12.04 will be alot more appealing

    20:18:11 <andru183> hey guys, did I miss the meeting?

    20:18:17 <ebel> andru183: no, still going on

    20:18:28 <imgarysmith> oh okay, ill just wait a few weeks

    20:18:34 <imgarysmith> hey andru

    20:18:35 <ebel> imgarysmith: sorry for any mix up, i'll be sure to set some aside for you this time.

    20:18:35 <mokmeister> lts is always more appealing really

    20:18:36 <andru183> huzzar, then hello all

    20:18:50 <mokmeister> hi andru183

    20:18:53 <ebel> so, release party

    20:18:59 <ebel> #topic 12.04 release party

    20:19:09 <airurando> hi andru183

    20:19:19 <andru183> hi airurando, didn't know this was on

    20:19:40 <airurando> not many suggestions from the mailing list

    20:19:47 <ebel> there's been a few emails on the mailing list w.r.t. release party.

    20:20:39 <mokmeister> My son's communion is on the 28th, so I'll be doing a joint celebration! Smile :)

    20:21:02 <Victor9098> There are too many suggestions Wink ;)

    20:21:02 <Victor9098> The April 29th option of meeting on the Sunday, would that net the most people?

    20:21:46 <tdr112> i think if its an evening meetup it has to be onnthe sat

    20:21:54 <ebel> tdr112: agreed

    20:22:11 <ebel> w/end of apr 28/29 was prefered date.

    20:22:17 <airurando> I have a pref for the Sat evening also

    20:22:20 <slashtommy> i like airurando's idea of a pub meet in town

    20:22:32 <ebel> location is either (a) pub (no food), (b) geeknic in dun laoghaire

    20:22:35 <zmoylan> sat the pubs would be more busy?

    20:23:11 <tdr112> save the geeknic for the summer

    20:23:15 <slashtommy> not all, avoid places with a DJ or lots of tourists

    20:23:25 <ebel> How about we go for the idea of pub meet on Sat. 28th April?

    20:23:31 <Victor9098> tdr112: +1

    20:23:31 <slashtommy> aye

    20:23:40 <ebel> which is Saturday Week

    20:23:43 <airurando> yip

    20:23:55 <ebel> right, pub suggestions?

    20:24:09 <airurando> lots of pub suggestions at last meeting

    20:24:18 <slashtommy> brewdock?

    20:24:30 <mokmeister> Costellos Wink ;)

    20:24:39 <slashtommy> or black sheep

    20:24:40 <tdr112> bull and castle

    20:24:44 <slashtommy> on capel street 20:24:53 * ebel really should look at minutes/logs before a meeting

    20:24:54 <slashtommy> bull and castle have a DJ at weekends

    20:25:08 <slashtommy> where is costellos?

    20:25:26 <mokmeister> Limerick. Wink ;)

    20:25:45 <tdr112> how about put all of these in a poll and end the poll on friday night

    20:25:47 <slashtommy> the black sheep on capel street, has craft beer, no DJ, no loud music

    20:25:58 <ebel> ok, we'll do dublin release party first, then limerick

    20:25:59 <zmoylan> sounds optimal

    20:26:07 <ebel> tdr112: ok

    20:26:20 <ebel> i'll set that up and email list with results

    20:26:33 <airurando> I say skip the poll and decide now

    20:26:43 <airurando> just 2 weeks to got

    20:26:44 <slashtommy> yes

    20:26:46 <zmoylan> saves time

    20:26:48 <airurando> time is short

    20:30:38 <ebel> mokmeister: so there'll be a limerick release party?

    20:30:58 <andru183> I was going to pass the idea around skynet but forgot

    20:31:08 <airurando> mokmeister andru183 do tell!

    20:31:09 <mokmeister> I don't know really

    20:31:29 <andru183> airurando I didn't say it to em, I forgot to

    20:31:38 <mokmeister> Like I said, the young fella's communion is on that ,so I'll be pretty tied up.

    20:31:47 <mokmeister> *day*

    20:31:59 <andru183> I can't do that weekend for a release party, have a wedding and the design jam

    20:32:05 <mokmeister> might be available in the evening, we'll see.

    20:32:06 <airurando> aye mokmeister

    20:32:27 <airurando> mokmeister if I was you I'd stay put

    20:33:14 <mokmeister> My son will end up in Counselling in years to come if I abandon him on his communion.... Wink ;)

    20:33:22 <airurando> Smile :)

    20:33:45 <ebel> feel free to send emails around, tweets etc. if you wanna let people know

    20:33:48 <zmoylan> whereas the traditional method is to completely embarrass them Smile :-)

    20:33:50 <ebel> (If you're doing anything)]

    20:34:07 <mokmeister> lol

    20:34:23 <Victor9098> As soon as the event details page is up we can share it around

    20:34:23 <airurando> ebel I'll set it up on the LTP

    20:34:39 <ebel> airurando: cool

    20:34:57 <ebel> #agreed 8pm black sheep, capel st. Dublin Ubuntu 12.04 release party

    20:35:08 <airurando> cool

    20:35:19 <ebel> #agreed maaaaaybe limerick release party

    20:35:24 <zmoylan> on sa tapr 28

    20:35:28 <zmoylan> *sat

    20:35:34 <airurando> what kind of place is it?

    20:35:39 <ebel> airurando: craft beer pub

    20:35:49 <mokmeister> yum

    20:35:57 <zmoylan> tweeting now...

    20:35:59 <ebel> releated to that

    20:36:00 <slashtommy> with no dj or loud music

    20:36:04 <ebel> #topic CD distribution

    20:36:12 <ebel> When we get CDs we should give them around

    20:36:19 <ebel> we've had mixed succeass

    20:36:21 <slashtommy> and no TV's

    20:36:33 <airurando> slashtommy sounds great 20:36:34 * slashtommy will not need the TV-B-Gone

    20:36:54 <ebel> I'll send an email around to the mailing list to see who 'comes out of the woodwork' and wants CDs

    20:37:01 <airurando> I consider the next lot of

    20:37:08 <airurando> CDs special

    20:37:25 <tdr112> lts

    20:37:27 <ebel> previously I've posted them out.

    20:37:49 <airurando> these LTS releases are what we should be promoting to the general populus

    20:37:51 <ebel> uptake was low last time (and I was delayed getting back to people)

    20:38:00 <tdr112> costs ebel too much

    20:38:08 <ebel> so: Ideas for CD distribution…. go!

    20:38:26 <mokmeister> I agree with airurando, lts' are where it's at really

    20:38:35 <airurando> I don't think we have to distribute them all in 6 months

    20:38:42 <mokmeister> especially with this one, support for 5 years and all

    20:38:45 <czajkowski> how about people mail you a self addressed envelope

    20:38:50 <czajkowski> and you can then post it to them

    20:38:50 <slashtommy> ubuntu hour after we receive them

    20:38:55 <czajkowski> that works for lots of teams

    20:38:58 <airurando> these should be promoted as stable LTS

    20:39:01 <slashtommy> many people will be able to collect

    20:39:02 <ebel> czajkowski: good idea

    20:40:06 <ebel> think I requested SAEs from people last time and didn't hear anything in some cases ☹

    20:40:07 <airurando> highlight the 'stable' 'LTS' attributes in the mails

    20:40:11 <ebel> but I'll try it again

    20:40:15 <andru183> postings works for me too and I'm not up in Dublin often

    20:41:27 <mokmeister> I'm up in Dublin the last Wednesday of every month (mostly) so I could always collect them and bring them down to Limerick?

    20:41:35 <Victor9098> What about just passing out a few to those who come along to the Ubuntu Hour's and then let them pass on to those they know/think are interested. Can always 'hit-up' for more in the future?

    20:41:39 <ebel> So we can take our time with how to decide how and when to send out CDs

    20:41:52 <ebel> Victor9098: yep that's what we sometimes do

    20:41:58 <ebel> mokmeister: cool!

    20:42:02 <airurando> ebel I think so

    20:42:06 <andru183> mokmeister that could work too

    20:42:38 <mokmeister> cool

    20:43:19 <ebel> So I'll send emails to mailing list to see what people say, who wants CDs etc.

    20:43:48 <tdr112> cool

    20:43:51 <Victor9098> Either way I know I am going to be gettign texts for about a dozen family and friends on the 26th about a big 'upgrade' notice on their screens Big Grin :)

    20:43:56 <mokmeister> sounds good

    20:44:31 <ebel> cool

    20:45:45 <mokmeister> would you get the upgrade notice if you were on 10.04? I think you would

    20:46:01 <Victor9098> You should since its an LTS

    20:46:08 <mokmeister> indeed

    20:47:36 <ebel> #topic Any Other Business?

    20:47:59 <andru183> just an update on the new site

    20:48:03 <airurando> limerick happy hour?
