20:00 < etank> is everyone ready to get started? 20:00 < montgoej> yep 20:00 < comfurtn> sí 20:00 < redoscar3> Ready as rain. 20:00 < X626> Yeah. 20:01 < ScatterBr> good to go 20:02 < etank> ok as a reminder the topics for tonight are IRL Meetings, Wiki updates, Install Fest cont., News from sabdfl 20:02 < etank> first off is the IRL meetings 20:02 < montgoej> brb, gotta eat supper real quick 20:02 < etank> there has been talk of meeting at coffee shops just to talk and stuff 20:02 >>> digitone!n=ok@CPE-76-177-7-131.natcky.res.rr.com 20:03 < etank> there is a thread for it at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=389319 20:03 < etank> have we decided yet to do this in Louisville for the first one? 20:04 < etank> and if so what about a date? 20:04 < comfurtn> i'll abstain from this one. 20:04 < etank> too bad Zuph isn't in here since it was his idea 20:04 < jkeyes0> I'm pretty safe saying "Anytime, anyplace" for me. 20:05 < etank> anyone else want to add ideas to this 20:06 < X626> I can't make it to Louisville, but if we have anything in Lexington, I may be able to make it. 20:06 < ScatterBr> It 20:06 < comfurtn> X626: same for me. 20:06 < etank> X626: i am kind of the same way 20:06 < ScatterBr> It's a great big "depends on workload" for me. 20:06 < redoscar3> I'm a bit lukewarm to the idea only because in the past, everyone just sat around and stared at one another. 20:07 < etank> i do think that it would be a good idea to do things in a few different towns though 20:08 < X626> Yeah, that's a good idea. 20:08 < redoscar3> I've participated in computer clubs for 20+ years, and the results are always the same. 20:08 < etank> the idea here is for us to drink coffee and talk geek 20:08 < etank> nothing heavy 20:09 < etank> if it lasts and hour or 10 minutes it doesn't matter 20:09 < redoscar3> I understand. I suppose it just depends on how the personalities click. 20:09 < jkeyes0> and of course some people will bring laptops to distract from the obvious inadequacies of computer geekdom. 20:10 < etank> i think that we should try to find places that have free wifi for that purpose 20:10 < ScatterBr> free wifi++ 20:11 < venomous> i thought the concensus was for the coffee shop on 3rd?? 20:11 < redoscar3> That was in Lexington. In Louisville, they were talking about Heine Bros on Bardstown Road. 20:11 < etank> that is for the release party venomous 20:12 < etank> this is something that can be weekly / monthly 20:12 < venomous> disregard me....evidently i'm not up-to-date 20:13 < etank> any other thoughts 20:13 < jkeyes0> if we did regional, it would certainly make it easier for people to attend, but the groups would be tiny. perhaps regional for more often, and larger groups in one central location once per month/3months/whatever 20:13 < etank> like i said too bad Zuph isn't here tonight 20:13 < etank> jkeyes0: good idea 20:14 < jkeyes0> and if we did louisville and lexington groups, I could float. :P 20:14 < etank> how about we post some more ideas on the thread and then we can talk about it more next week 20:14 < X626> That sounds good. 20:14 < jkeyes0> sounds like a plan. 20:15 < etank> ok then. the next topic is Wiki Updates 20:15 < etank> there have been some changes made to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KentuckyTeam 20:15 < etank> when you get a chance look over them if you would and let me know what you think 20:16 < etank> my goal was to clean things up a little 20:16 < etank> each page (except the Approval Application) has a header on it 20:16 < comfurtn> header def a plus. 20:16 < X626> I like how it looks. 20:17 >>> firstname.lastname@example.org 20:17 < etank> props go to comfurtn for the KnowledgeBase page 20:17 < etank> he has done a great job on it i think 20:17 < redoscar3> Way to go comfurtn........ 20:17 < comfurtn> thanks, etank. 20:18 < ScatterBr> agreed. 20:18 < etank> in line with the wiki stuff we need to assign / elect / whatever a team leader for the wiki team 20:18 < X626> Yeah, a real good job. I've looked at it once or twice, and I like how it looks. 20:18 < montgoej> back... 20:19 < comfurtn> wb montgoej 20:19 < etank> would anyone like to volunteer to be team lead 20:19 < etank> or nominate someone 20:20 < comfurtn> what would that entail exactly? 20:20 < etank> just making sure that stuff stays looking nice and neat 20:20 < etank> organize and all that 20:20 < comfurtn> i could do that, if no one else feels strongly about it. 20:21 < jkeyes0> with the great job on the knowledgebase, I'd nominate comfurtn 20:21 < etank> any other nominees? 20:21 < venomous> i would volunteer, but i find myself short on time lately. 20:22 < comfurtn> organizing is one of my strengths, so it might be a good match. 20:23 < etank> keep in mind that no matter who the leader is everyone can still add/edit the pages 20:23 < venomous> comfurtn's good work on the kb speaks well for his nomination 20:23 < etank> not all of the work falls on the leader 20:23 montgoej agrees with venomous 20:23 < etank> so lets vote 20:23 < etank> all for comfurtn 20:23 etank +1 20:23 jkeyes0 +1 20:23 X626 +1 20:23 montgoej + 1 20:23 ScatterBrain +1 20:23 < redoscar3> redoscar3 +1 20:24 < venomous> +1 20:24 < etank> done 20:25 < etank> i just edited the wiki to show the change 20:25 < etank> good job comfurtn 20:25 < comfurtn> k, thanks guys. 20:25 < etank> next up is Install Fest cont. 20:26 < etank> we still need to come up with a date for the dry run and also the live event 20:26 < etank> not to mention a location 20:26 < ScatterBr> etank: How many people are you expecting? 20:26 < etank> srwalter has said that he will check at UK for a spot for next week for the dry run if we want 20:26 < etank> ScatterBrain: not really sure at this point 20:27 < etank> depends on the number of members that will be there and how many we can convince/drag there 20:27 < comfurtn> not sure if it matters, but i'll be at UK next tuesday. 20:27 < ScatterBr> I'm assuming it'll be at night/on the weekend? 20:27 < etank> i would love to see 20 - 30 people including members 20:27 < etank> weekend 20:28 < comfurtn> let me make sure i'm right on this... the install party is scheduled in april.... and the dry run in undecided? 20:28 < etank> for the dry run that is really going to be members only so that we can get our stuff in order 20:28 < comfurtn> *is undecided? 20:29 < etank> neither is really decided yet 20:29 < etank> the release party is the only firm date so far 20:29 < etank> and that is April 21st 20:29 < comfurtn> ah, k. 20:30 < etank> does next weekend work for most people for the dry run meeting? 20:30 < venomous> so far... 20:30 < montgoej> works for me 20:30 < ScatterBr> as of right no... 20:31 < jkeyes0> afaik, next weekend would be great 20:31 < redoscar3> Works for me if nothing else comes up. 20:31 < ScatterBr> er...right now. 20:31 < X626!n=X626@dialup-126.96.36.199.Dial1.Cincinnati1.Level3.net [Nick collision from services.] 20:32 < redoscar3> Are shipit CDs going to be available at the Install Fest? 20:32 >>> X626!n=X626@dialup-188.8.131.52.Dial1.Cincinnati1.Level3.net 20:32 < etank> redoscar3: how do you mean? 20:33 < ScatterBr> They won't be even ready, right? 20:33 < redoscar3> Well, it might be nice to have them to hand out to those we install to. 20:33 < etank> some of us have ordered some CDs that we will be able to bring and give out 20:33 < ScatterBr> I can probably create a few from D/L ISOs. 20:33 < redoscar3> That's only for Feisty, right? 20:33 < etank> they are Dapper though 20:33 < etank> not Edgy 20:34 < comfurtn> which version are we leaning more toward? 20:34 < etank> the thought was for dapper since it is LTS 20:35 < ScatterBr> I have some Dapper ShipIT CDs, I can make some Edgy if needed. 20:35 < etank> my thought is to have Dapper, Edgy and Feisty there and give the user a choice 20:35 < redoscar3> I agree. Unless the machines are super new, Dapper is a great distro with the LTS. 20:35 < etank> if the user does not care what they get then we do Dapper 20:35 < montgoej> I have some dapper Shipit cds 20:35 >>> email@example.com 20:35 < X626> I have some Edgy Shipit CDs. 20:35 < etank> i have about 25 CDs from shipit 20:35 < montgoej> maybe we can get lucky and get some Edgys like X626 20:36 < etank> that would be nice 20:36 < jkeyes0> I've got 10 from shipit 20:36 >>> Shirmpy_firstname.lastname@example.org 20:36 < montgoej> I have 5 PPC, 4 64 bit and probably ~10 32 bit 20:36 < etank> otherwise if anyone has a CD stomper then we can make our own 20:36 < etank> !hi | Shirmpy_ 20:36 < ubotwo> Shirmpy_: Hi!
