Although they may be short, we think it may help in keeping interest alive and growth. 20:05 < bkingx> Those in favor? 20:05 bkingx +1 20:06 Yoooder raises hand 20:06 Zuph +1 20:06 venomous +1 20:07 < bkingx> Anyone else? 20:08 < bkingx> Comments, questions, conspiracy theories about this item? 20:10 < bkingx> OK, then that passes...we will be having weekly meetings from now on. 20:10 < bkingx> Next up, Charity PC Cleanup. 20:11 < jkeyes0> (I'm back, btw) 20:11 < bkingx> We had to cancel the meeting at my house due to scheduling, but we hope to re-schedule soon. 20:11 >>> Pat40503firstname.lastname@example.org 20:11 < bkingx> I have started a new job, so it is hard to figure out what my schedule will be, but it shouldn't be too hard. 20:12 < bkingx> Basically, we need to clean, inventory, and test the machines to see what we have. 20:12 < venomous!i=ven0m0us@gateway/tor/x-b3fb86be6dedfc34 ["Leaving"] 20:13 < bkingx> From there we can move to the project to load for charities. 20:13 < bkingx> So by next week I hope to have a solid date to work on these machines. 20:14 < bkingx> Next up, "Powered by Ubuntu" stickers. 20:14 < bkingx> Zuph, want to fill us in? 20:16 < bkingx> Guess not! 20:16 < bkingx> Basically, we have some simple Powered by Ubuntu stickers to put on our machines. 20:17 < bkingx> Problem we are finding is the top layer peels off leaving a blank sticker. 20:18 < bkingx> So the NY team, I believe, has designed some aluminum ones that are pretty sweet. 20:18 < jkeyes0> I think it's massachusetts, but that's a moot point 20:18 < bkingx> They are being sold in lots, and of course, the more the cheaper. 20:18 < bkingx> Thanks jkeyes0 ! 20:18 < jkeyes0> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MassachusettsTeam/Projects/AluminiumCaseBadges 20:19 < bkingx> Good job! 20:19 < bkingx> jkeyes0: want to chime in here? 20:20 < jkeyes0> not really. that link has all the info. It looks like Zuph has tentatively signed us up for 250 badges at $0.44, or 400 at $0.24 20:21 < bkingx> Right, so we need volunteers to chip in and give up some money! 20:21 < bkingx> These are VERY nice case badges. If you can help. contact Zuph . 20:22 < jkeyes0> I've got some spare funds in my paypal acct I'd be happy to donate. 20:22 < bkingx> You da man! 20:22 < jkeyes0> hooray for pinecone research sending to paypal. :) 20:22 < bkingx> :) 20:22 < bkingx> Ok, that is about it. 20:23 < bkingx> Short and sweet! 20:23 < bkingx> Does anyone have anything else? 20:23 < jkeyes0> any ideas for another cup of ubuntu meeting? 20:23 < Pat40503> Are any CRT's, keyboards,mice, etc needed? 20:23 < bkingx> Pat40503: we have some CRT's and keyboards. But mice are def needed. 20:23 >>> Zupht0r!n=Brad@74-138-194-123.dhcp.insightbb.com 20:24 < Zuph!n=Brad@74-138-194-123.dhcp.insightbb.com [Read error: 113 (No route to host)] 20:24 < Zupht0r> I hate my internet 20:24 ~ Zupht0r is now Zuph 20:24 < bkingx> most of the CRT's are 15" 20:24 < Zuph> Where are we? 20:24 < bkingx> Done!

20:41 < bkingx> People will contact Zuph for donating to case badges. 20:41 < bkingx> We are moving back to weekly meetings. 20:41 < Zuph> Okay 20:42 < bkingx> We will schedule a cleanup date next week (I have to see how the new job goes) 20:42 < jkeyes0> I like the idea of IRL meetings 20:42 < etank> i realllllly would like to see more LUG style meets 20:43 < etank> if not i may have to join a LUG 20:43 < bkingx> Once a month....I think we can do that. 20:43 < Zuph> So wait 20:43 < Zuph> What was our decision on case badges? 20:43 < Zuph> We need money 20:44 < Zuph> And need to tell the MA team 20:44 < bkingx> Anyone who wishes to donate can contact you. 20:44 < etank> i have someone that has said that he would match whatever i contribute 20:44 < jkeyes0> I've got $15 in my paypal I can donate 20:44 < etank> would it be better to commit to a $dollar$ amount or a number of badges? 20:44 < Zuph> I mean, I want to know how much we'll have so I know how many to order 20:44 < Zuph> etank: yes yes a thousand times yes 20:45 < etank> which ones? 20:45 < bkingx> I should be able to find a few $$ 20:45 < Zuph> Dollar amount 20:45 < etank> i agree 20:45 < Zuph> Right now, we are committed to 250 or $110 at 44 cent each or 400 / $96 at .24 each 20:46 < etank> Zuph: is that what you are going to do 20:46 < Zuph> I am willing to put in $25! 20:46 < etank> i see 20:46 < Zuph> If we can get ~$100, then yes. 20:46 < Zuph> I can't afford this on my own though. 20:46 < bkingx> Hard to tell tonight, have to wait until the paycheck comes in. 20:46 < etank> so we can stay at 250 badges and just collect for that 20:46 < bkingx> So 400 is cheaper that 250? 20:46 < Zuph> It depends 20:46 < Zuph> There are price levels 20:47 < Zuph> If the total number of badges is under 1000, then they're .44 each 20:47 < etank> so we are collecting to meet the $110 amount right now 20:47 < Zuph> But if the total is between 1000 and 2500, they're .24 each 20:47 < Zuph> Do we think we can meet $110 if we try??? 20:47 < etank> i think so 20:47 < Zuph> Okay. 20:48 < etank> if you are willing to do $25 20:48 < jkeyes0> between me and you, Zuph, we're at $40, so it shouldn't be a problem. 20:48 < Yoooder> I can kick in $10 20:48 < Zuph> So it is settled. 20:48 < etank> i am willing to pitch in about $20 - $25 20:48 < bkingx> Yeah, I can chip in. 20:48 < Zuph> ~$100 worth of case badges 20:48 < etank> and my friend is willing to do the same 20:48 < Zuph> excellent 20:48 < Zuph> we have it then 20:48 < etank> so that is about $100 then 20:48 < bkingx> Might have to go to McDonald's instead of StarBucks for coffee now. 20:49 < etank> they may be to expensive too 20:49 < etank> McDonalds that is 20:50 < bkingx> Yup... 20:50 < etank> so how many people were present tonight?
