I think everyone is a geek in their own way 20:15 < Zuph> Ubuntu-Ky: forget everyone 20:15 < etank> i may not be able to make that one Zuph 20:15 < Zuph> Ubuntu-Ky: Die. 20:15 < etank> that is the day after my wifes B-Day 20:15 < etank> forget everyone 20:15 < Ubuntu-Ky> Ok etank 20:15 < Zuph> ah 20:15 < etank> but go for it anyway 20:15 < Zuph> well, that's the first day I'm free to host. 20:16 < Zuph> What time would be good? 20:16 < etank> klb: you are in the Louisville area 20:16 < etank> would you be interested in getting together for coffee on the 8th 20:17 < etank> that is a saturday 20:17 < BlankBrunoemail@example.com ["Leaving"] 20:18 < etank> jkeyes0: what time would be good for you 20:18 < jkeyes0> not sure. wife's b-day celebration is that day 20:19 < etank> Zuph: would there be another day around that time that would work for you 20:19 < etank> like maybe the 15th 20:19 < etank> or 16th 20:19 < Zuph> I would prefer a weekend, but the 15th should work. 20:20 < jkeyes0> sadly, I'm out of town that weekend, the 15th (in NC), and I'll be out of town the following weekend 20:20 < etank> argh 20:20 < jkeyes0> most likely I just won't be able to make this one. no biggie for me. 20:21 < etank> bkingx: what about you? 20:21 < etank> ShadowXMG: would you be interested in getting together with us for this 20:22 < Zuph> The problem is that no one seems to come unless contacted directly. 20:22 < Zuph> I hate everything :( 20:22 < ShadowXMG> possibly, most likely ride with jkeyes0 the first time 20:23 < X626> I'd like to come, but I won't be able to go to Louisville. 20:23 < etank> ok 20:23 < jkeyes0> if we could host one at starbucks here in frankfort, the 8th would easily work. :) 20:24 < etank> the thing is that we have been trying to get one going in Da'Ville for a while 20:24 < jkeyes0> a very good point 20:24 < etank> and noone seems to ever go 20:25 < Zuph> Because all of you suck. 20:25 < Zuph> If I may be so dour. 20:25 < jkeyes0> and louisville is... awkward, to drive in 20:25 etank hands Zuph a beer 20:25 < Zuph> jkeyes0: Nah, you just have to know. 20:26 < Zuph> Plus, the Heine Bros. I'm thinking of is dead easy to get to. 20:26 < etank> that it is 20:26 < jkeyes0> it's also kinda far away for a lot of people. :) 20:26 < etank> but it isnt fair for Zuph to always be the one to travel so far either 20:27 < jkeyes0> agreed 20:27 < Zuph> And we do HAVE Louisville members 20:27 < Zuph> Just, none of them DO anything 20:27 < etank> how about we keep thinking about it and move on to the next topic 20:28 jkeyes0 +1 20:28 < etank> the next topic is kind of on the same wave length 20:28 < etank> IRL meetings 20:28 < etank> we have a location ( in Lexington ( sorry Zuph )) that we can meet at 20:28 < Zuph> If gas is above $3.00 a gallon, driving to Lexington is out of the question unless planned well ahead of time. 20:29 < etank> it would be good to have real LUG style meets once a month 20:29 < etank> or even every other month 20:29 < etank> how many of you would be up for that 20:29 etank +1 20:29 jkeyes0 +1 20:29 < Shrimpy_> +1 20:29 X626 +1 20:30 Zuph +1 20:30 < etank> cool 20:30 < jkeyes0> didn't you mention a location in lexington, etank to host the meetings? 20:31 < etank> i dont know which school it is but I have a friend that is a teacher 20:31 < etank> he has permission for us to meet there 20:31 < etank> there would be plenty of power, desk space, white boards, projectors, etc 20:32 < jkeyes0> network? 20:32 < etank> and some of his students would likely want to participate too 20:32 < etank> oh yeah, network too (thanks jkeyes0) 20:32 < jkeyes0> network = good 20:32 < etank> really all that we need to have a good meeting would be there 20:33 < etank> all that we have to provide is interest in actually doing something 20:33 < etank> i think that this would be a great way to attract new people too 20:33 < zenwhen!n=zenwhen@ubuntu/member/zenwhen ["This computer has gone to sleep"] 20:33 < Zuph> We could play king of the hill with a secured server. :) 20:33 < jkeyes0> agreed 20:34 < etank> and it doesnt always have to be in that location 20:34 < Zuph> Divide into two teams, and at the end of a set time limit, whoever has controlled the server for the longest amount of time wins :) 20:34 < etank> if we find a spot in Louisville that would work then we could meet there some too 20:34 < etank> Zuph: that sounds like fun 20:35 < etank> when would be a good time to shoot for for the first meet? 20:36 < etank> we will need time to plan for it 20:36 < Zuph> Sometime that gas has dipped below $3 a gallon, but before Gustsy :) 20:36 < Shrimpy_> king of the hill that would be awesome 20:36 < Zuph> When's Gutsy coming out? The exact date? 20:36 < etank> Zuph: i still think that we should have a release party for gutsy 20:37 < jkeyes0> Zuph, supposed to be 10/19 20:37 < Zuph> etank: I agree. 20:37 < Zuph> :( 20:37 < etank> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/GutsyReleaseSchedule 20:37 < Zuph> If It comes out 10/19, I'll have to skip the festivities. 20:37 < etank> why Zuph 20:37 < jkeyes0> so, perhaps 10/18 instead 20:37 < Zuph> That's my 21st Birthday, and the weekend has already been earmarked for celebration. 20:37 < etank> if it doesnt slip some 20:37 < jkeyes0> tribe 5 is out, btw. 20:38 < etank> we dont have to do it on the actual release day 20:38 < etank> some teams have done it a week or two after 20:38 < etank> and i would love to see us do another install fest sometime soon as well 20:39 < Shrimpy_> but then the hype about gusty will not be as high 20:39 < etank> it is more for us to get together and celebrate 20:40 < Shrimpy_firstname.lastname@example.org ["Leaving"] 20:40 < etank> Zuph: we can celebrate with an Ubuntu cake 20:40 < Zuph> Hooray! 20:40 < etank> and 21 candles 20:40 < Zuph> Hehe 20:41 < jkeyes0> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/GutsyGibbon/Tribe5 20:41 < etank> so how about we start thinking about maybe doing a LUG style meet early Oct 20:42 < etank> do you think that we would have enough time to plan something for then 20:42 < etank> we could make the first one about GPG stuff and have a key sighing 20:42 < etank> we have been talking about doing one for a long time 20:42 < Zuph> Late Sept. Early Oct. Would be good for an IRL meeting 20:43 < etank> coo 20:43 < Zuph> plenty of time to account for things, and we can use it to plan the release party 20:43 < etank> bkingx: does that work for you? 20:43 jkeyes0 +1 20:43 < etank> yup yup 20:43 < etank> JarG0n: what are your thoughts? 20:43 < Zuph> I just burped and tasted kabob.
