[19:08] <JackWat> here pradeep https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NorthCarolinaTeam/Meeting

[19:08] <_marx_> the wiki needs to be updated on that

[19:08] <JackWat> oh

[19:08] <_marx_> pradeep: do you have a NC connection?

[19:08] <pradeep_> nope

[19:08] <pradeep_> am nigerian like i said

[19:09] <pradeep_> saw a notice on twitter an followed it here

[19:09] <_marx_> ah

[19:09] <akgraner> I twitter about the meetings..:-)

[19:11] * boredandblogging (n=nali@ubuntu/member/boredandblogging) has joined #ubuntu-us-nc

[19:11] <akgraner> so who is here for the LoCo meeting

[19:11] <JackWat> <

[19:11] <pradeep_> mr

[19:11] <JackWat> and _marx_

[19:11] <pradeep_> me

[19:11] <JackWat> so all 3 of us

[19:11] <akgraner> me too

[19:12] <_marx_> [TOPIC] bug jams

[19:12] <MootBot> New Topic: bug jams

[19:12] <_marx_> location is a problem in my area

[19:13] <akgraner> for global jam or just in general

[19:13] <_marx_> both

[19:13] <akgraner> there are places in Fuquay that have free wifi that can do it... and if people want I can host a few people here at my house global Jam day

[19:14] <akgraner> still looking for a location in this area that has free wifi and by this area I mean Western NC

[19:14] <_marx_> finding a wireless spot isn't terribly difficult

[19:14] <pradeep_> sorry would have to listen and may contribute to the meeting too

[19:14] <_marx_> well here it isn't terribly difficult

[19:15] <akgraner> no it's just talking over for a day...

[19:15] <akgraner> pradeep, yep you can contribute...:-)

[19:15] <pradeep_> ok

[19:16] <akgraner> So I was thinking that I could scout out a location (other than my house) here in the area where we can set up shop for a day and squash some bugs.

[19:16] <_marx_> I suppose i'm wishing for a spot that has pc's running ubuntu or that would be fairly easy to bring in a pc

[19:16] <akgraner> I talked to The 1927 Lake Lure in and we can have it there

[19:16] <_marx_> not limiting the event to laptops

[19:17] <akgraner> Inn not in I meant

[19:17] <akgraner> they have some meeting rooms that we can use..

[19:17] <_marx_> oh that's a pretty place

[19:17] <akgraner> Smile :-) I think so but it's only 20 mins from the house so I am partial to it...

[19:18] <akgraner> What about areas for Global Jam to do other things

[19:18] <_marx_> not sure what you mean akgraner

[19:19] <akgraner> well Global Jam isn't just about bugs...it's about all things ubuntu

[19:19] <akgraner> so we could plan an LoCo UbuCon

[19:19] <akgraner> run it like an unconference

[19:19] <akgraner> people show up and we run with it

[19:19] <akgraner> bug jam could be one part of that

[19:20] <akgraner> if someone shows up that knows how to package we could have a class on packaging

[19:20] <pradeep_> think i agree too

[19:20] <akgraner> we could have one on how to set up wiki's

[19:20] <pradeep_> it should have topics related to ubuntu

[19:20] <pradeep_> not only bugs

[19:21] <akgraner> _marx_, sorry I was on a roll...:-)

[19:21] <_marx_> it's good I like it

[19:21] <akgraner> so Winston to me is a good center for both the Raleigh crew and here.. that way no one is driving more than 2 hours

[19:22] <akgraner> but hey that's just me..

[19:23] <akgraner> unless people want to come here.. I can arrange something

[19:24] <_marx_> ow, pressure to find a good location

[19:24] <akgraner> the hotel is cutting their rates for me from 230.00 -250.00 a night to like 89-99 if they have availability and someone wants to stay there...

[19:25] * pradeep has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))

[19:25] <_marx_> akgraner: for the Oct 2-4 weekend?

[19:25] <akgraner> yep

[19:25] <_marx_> dang, hum maybe that's past leaf color change peak

[19:25] <akgraner> well not for me.. for the LoCo team and Ubuntu related events

[19:25] <JFo> woo

[19:26] <JFo> reduced hotel rates FTW

[19:26] <akgraner> so should I go ahead and plan something here...

[19:27] <akgraner> if it's just a handful I will turn my house into an open house/Global Jam...

[19:27] <pradeep_> would the meetings be online

[19:27] <akgraner> pradeep_, they can be

[19:27] <pradeep_> k

[19:27] <_marx_> what do you think attendance would be like akgraner

[19:28] <pradeep_> would have start a loco channel here in nigeria

[19:28] <akgraner> I am not sure... I am hoping to see what the ubucon in ATL does

[19:28] <akgraner> and go from there

[19:28] <akgraner> pradeep_, you can.. after this meeting I can shoot you the links to do that

[19:29] <pradeep_> ok

[19:29] <akgraner> _marx_, BugeyeD would you all be willing to come here?

[19:29] <akgraner> JFo, is here.. Pete and I plus who ever else we can bring with 5 of us..

[19:30] <akgraner> maybe we can snag the GA and SC LoCo's for that event and combine efforts...

[19:30] <JFo> I imagine we could

[19:30] * _marx_ is maybe right now

[19:30] <_marx_> I hope to find a location in Winston, Kernersville or G'boro

[19:31] <akgraner> they would rock if you can

[19:31] <akgraner> I'll work on stuff here but if you find something there let me know and we can go from there...

[19:31] <akgraner> will that work

[19:31] <_marx_> libraries have pc's running xp so live cd's are an option

[19:32] <_marx_> yes akgraner that works

[19:32] <akgraner> cool
