(06:32:54 PM) NaNO2x: s

(06:33:04 PM) dshufelt: they are very optimistic about starting back up but the contacts we have are too busy to run the meetings

(06:33:07 PM) ***peanutb_ mentioned libraries

(06:33:13 PM) NaNO2x: i mean on the uw campus i can either start a club and get official space or steal some

(06:33:32 PM) NaNO2x: id actually mention coffee houses to them

(06:33:54 PM) peanutb_: thats not such a bad idea actually

(06:33:54 PM) H264: coffee... blah

(06:33:59 PM) NaNO2x: this is seattle h264 :P

(06:34:01 PM) ***peanutb_ doesent drink coffee either

(06:34:07 PM) dshufelt: I would still like to get GSlug up and running again since they already have an established presence but if we need to then we can go all out and start an Ubuntu group in seattle

(06:34:12 PM) ***NaNO2x is off coffee after 56cups/day

(06:34:28 PM) peanutb_: ITS A DRUG...

(06:34:45 PM) H264: and not that great for you

(06:34:57 PM) NaNO2x: caffine has stopped affecting me Sad :(

(06:35:08 PM) peanutb_: you have built up a tolerance

(06:35:31 PM) NaNO2x: :p

(06:35:39 PM) NaNO2x: redline not working doesnt help!

(06:35:44 PM) dshufelt: peanutb, coffee is still legal not to mention an important dietary suppliment

(06:35:58 PM) H264: haha

(06:35:59 PM) peanutb_: right... shure it is.

(06:36:04 PM) H264: anyway..

(06:36:12 PM) NaNO2x: anyway, off of coffee, there are a few places i could see

(06:36:14 PM) dshufelt: it builds strong bones and active brain cells

(06:36:20 PM) dshufelt: anyway

(06:36:27 PM) peanutb_: lets move on.

(06:36:40 PM) ***peanutb_ points to moveon.org

(06:36:56 PM) dshufelt: I think if we want to bring GSlug back then we are going to need to schedule a meeting and see who shows

(06:37:10 PM) NaNO2x: yeah

(06:37:14 PM) desmondo: Smile :-) That's a good idea!

(06:37:16 PM) peanutb_: lets do it.

(06:37:36 PM) dshufelt: OK, lets get a venue and schedule a meeting.

(06:37:50 PM) peanutb_: agreed.

(06:37:55 PM) dshufelt: I don't have a problem being bold

(06:37:56 PM) NaNO2x: well whats good for other people

(06:38:00 PM) H264: when? where? will there be free food?

(06:38:17 PM) dshufelt: weekends are best for me if I have to drive up north

(06:38:23 PM) NaNO2x: we could do washington convention center

(06:38:25 PM) NaNO2x: thats where 2600 meets

(06:38:32 PM) ***dshufelt is due for a vacation though

(06:38:38 PM) andrewkk: how big are we talking?

(06:38:55 PM) Ashex: NaNO2x: can you get a room at UW?

(06:39:05 PM) dshufelt: I'm down is there any cost involved?

(06:39:13 PM) NaNO2x: i'll ask around but probably

(06:39:15 PM) NaNO2x: i mean we could always just meet there

(06:39:18 PM) Ashex: UW is fairly central for seattle, and it's easier to get a room there then at the convention center

(06:39:29 PM) Ashex: for reserving a room at UW, none for a student

(06:39:37 PM) NaNO2x: really?

(06:39:40 PM) NaNO2x: who do i talk to

(06:39:42 PM) Ashex: I'm pretty sure

(06:39:45 PM) Ashex: um

(06:39:49 PM) ***Ashex thinks real quick

(06:39:55 PM) Ashex: I can't remember it off the top of my head

(06:40:00 PM) Ashex: I've gotten rooms at the library

(06:41:59 PM) NaNO2x: gimme a date i'll reserve one

(06:42:03 PM) dshufelt: OK, this is going to be one of those things that would be better for someone in the area to handle.

(06:42:07 PM) dshufelt: OK.

(06:42:16 PM) dshufelt: lets book it out about a month or so...

(06:42:19 PM) Ashex: NaNO2x: also, if you have a faculty member your cozy with, they can help you get a room

(06:42:46 PM) NaNO2x: and i do know most of the cs staff

(06:42:59 PM) peanutb_: someone just walked up to me and asked about linux... LOL

(06:43:03 PM) NaNO2x: nice

(06:43:10 PM) NaNO2x: tell them to come to the install fest

(06:43:12 PM) dshufelt: nice

(06:52:48 PM) andrewkk: hour and a half?

(06:53:02 PM) H264: umm, aside from the little install fest I am having, I think alright

(06:53:20 PM) peanutb_: fscking gnome, it keeps freezing

(06:53:28 PM) NaNO2x: max was 2 hours i figured give it an extra half hour because if people dont want to leave right then or want to plan a new place to be

(06:53:55 PM) dshufelt: Any other big plans besides the Install fest and the pizza social (that I didn't tell you about)?

(06:54:09 PM) NaNO2x: whats this pizza social?

(06:54:20 PM) dshufelt: yeah, we can always move to someplace with more coffee.

(06:54:39 PM) H264: well, I will be going to OSU/LBCC in the fall, I will then get to see what is going on around there

(06:54:56 PM) H264: and I will live in a more populated area Smile :)

(06:54:58 PM) dshufelt: I am going to invite everyone that is coming to Ubuntu Live to meet up Sunday night at Old Town Pizza in Portland

(06:56:16 PM) Ashex: Oh snap

(06:56:17 PM) peanutb_: Im still getting this echo from dshufelt

(06:56:20 PM) Ashex: that's when it is? :O

(06:56:23 PM) dshufelt: I am going to try to get SABDFL, Jono and the rest of the team

(06:56:39 PM) ***peanutb_ wishes him luck

(06:56:54 PM) H264: I'll tell Zelut Smile :)

(06:57:00 PM) peanutb_: I sent jono an email, he still hasent responded 2 days later

(06:57:17 PM) dshufelt: The social will take place Sunday night after Ubuntu Live gets out

(06:57:28 PM) ***Ashex completely forgot about ubuntu live

(06:57:35 PM) Ashex: in that case, I won't be going to spokane :/

(06:57:40 PM) peanutb_: it costs money

(06:57:46 PM) andrewkk: so expensive.

(06:57:59 PM) NaNO2x: you think its expensive

(06:57:59 PM) H264: it is.. $_$

(06:58:01 PM) peanutb_: why do i have to go to Greece? why?

(06:58:09 PM) NaNO2x: you should have seen the wc conferrence in seattle

(06:58:10 PM) dshufelt: I either go to Ubuntu live or buy a dell this month.

(06:58:14 PM) ***peanutb_ gets bored there

(06:58:20 PM) dshufelt: I already committed to the dell

(06:58:30 PM) peanutb_: dshufelt,dude you're getting a dell

(06:58:35 PM) Ashex: full time students get 65% discount

(06:58:52 PM) dshufelt: lol

(06:58:54 PM) peanutb_: that is still a lot of $$$$

(06:59:07 PM) Ashex: so, it's around 200 with discount....

(06:59:14 PM) NaNO2x: thats not to bad :P

(06:59:21 PM) NaNO2x: but it is for an ubuntu thing

(06:59:29 PM) Ashex: although, I'd have to get time off work

(06:59:32 PM) Ashex: Sad :( I wanted to go

(06:59:35 PM) peanutb_: well i have to leave pretty soon here (like in the next 10-15 min)

(06:59:42 PM) dshufelt: OK.

(06:59:45 PM) Ashex: ok

(06:59:48 PM) NaNO2x: the webdev one was $895

(06:59:49 PM) NaNO2x: :p

(06:59:49 PM) Ashex: paul, gimme a call tomorrow

(06:59:56 PM) Ashex: do you want my local number?

(07:00:01 PM) peanutb_: shure

(07:00:03 PM) dshufelt: I don't really have any updates on the WA loco team. (sorry)

(07:00:12 PM) peanutb_: but i cant get pms. so email it

(07:00:24 PM) Ashex: ok

(07:00:31 PM) peanutb_: that works too

(07:00:35 PM) Ashex: hehe

(07:00:39 PM) Ashex: I'll email it just in case

(07:00:51 PM) dshufelt: paul do you want to talk about updating the forum or the team blog or anything?

(07:01:42 PM) peanutb_: Ill be getting the drupal site up soon. The team blog is open for anyone who wants to install themes etc, but i think drupal will handle it all.

(07:02:08 PM) peanutb_: so Wa loco team,

(07:02:26 PM) peanutb_: how about everyone in Wa, sign up for it on the wiki.

(07:02:32 PM) andrewkk: what's going on with that? does it exist?

(07:02:33 PM) Ashex: link?

(07:02:36 PM) dshufelt: Sounds like a good idea

(07:02:39 PM) peanutb_: So we can get a count of who we have

(07:02:52 PM) NaNO2x: as i recalled the wiki for wa sucked

(07:02:54 PM) peanutb_: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WashingtonTeam

(07:02:56 PM) NaNO2x: :P

(07:02:58 PM) peanutb_: it does.

(07:03:16 PM) peanutb_: Im going to talk to the team contact and get approval to change it,

(07:03:29 PM) NaNO2x: ok so do i need to do anything special?

(07:03:32 PM) NaNO2x: or just ad my name

(07:03:40 PM) peanutb_: just add your name

(07:03:48 PM) dshufelt: well, we can work with them to try to implement improvements

(07:04:19 PM) dshufelt: Our wiki didn't always look so nice either

(07:04:36 PM) ***peanutb_ looked at the history and agrees

(07:05:04 PM) peanutb_: so. Progress on becoming official...

(07:05:08 PM) dshufelt: LOL thanks man

(07:05:31 PM) peanutb_: shure anytime

(07:05:35 PM) dshufelt: I am going to submit the request. I think we have shown that we are active and mean business

(07:06:03 PM) peanutb_: We will run into the statewide barrier though

(07:06:05 PM) dshufelt: The request will actually be submitted tonight or maybe on Saturday

(07:06:12 PM) Ashex: When we met with zenrox way back, he mentioned that getting a pnw team approved is unlikely, but having a team in each state and us all networking to create pnw team would work better

(07:06:14 PM) dshufelt: that's fine with me

(07:06:36 PM) peanutb_: not zenrox, whats his face

(07:06:48 PM) Ashex: Christer

(07:06:49 PM) peanutb_: Zelut

(07:06:56 PM) Ashex: yeah, Zelut

(07:06:56 PM) H264: that guy

(07:07:01 PM) H264: :P

(07:07:03 PM) ***Ashex could only remember that it started with a Z

(07:07:11 PM) dshufelt: I'm down with whatever but I think we have put allot of work it to this and deserve the official bennies

(07:07:20 PM) H264: Edwards I believe

(07:07:24 PM) Ashex: Yeah

(07:07:27 PM) Ashex: Christer Edwards

(07:07:32 PM) Ashex: I never got his card...

(07:07:40 PM) H264: me neither

(07:07:42 PM) peanutb_: I agree.

(07:07:56 PM) peanutb_: i agree

(07:07:56 PM) peanutb_: lets all show up at the community council meeting then.

(07:08:06 PM) H264: when is that?

(07:08:15 PM) peanutb_: does he have a card?

(07:08:16 PM) dshufelt: I've heard allot about this topic from all angles but we are providing something few locos would... An inclusive community

(07:08:53 PM) peanutb_: we can argue on #ubuntu-meeting when the time comes

(07:09:05 PM) dshufelt: Sounds like a plan. It would be nice to have many people show up and explain what they like about th ePNW team

(07:09:08 PM) H264: peanutb_: when is the next one?

(07:09:22 PM) peanutb_: good question

(07:09:25 PM) dshufelt: other then that I still plan on starting and supporting the state level teams

(07:09:35 PM) ***dshufelt checks his email

(07:10:09 PM) peanutb_: ok

(07:10:33 PM) peanutb_: shall we recap about the WWU speach?

(07:10:40 PM) NaNO2x: aye

(07:10:47 PM) dshufelt: The next loco team meeting is Sunday, June 24, 2007 at 14:00:00 UTC time.

(07:11:04 PM) peanutb_: not loco team, Community council meeting.

(07:11:12 PM) dshufelt: sure WWU speech went as well as could be expected.

(07:11:14 PM) peanutb_: they are held fortnightly

(07:11:49 PM) peanutb_: and we met andrewkk in person.

(07:12:22 PM) peanutb_: so art package?

(07:12:24 PM) NaNO2x: been there dione that :

(07:12:25 PM) NaNO2x: :P

(07:12:47 PM) peanutb_: so art package, I have it all ready, just give me the images

(07:12:54 PM) H264: umm

(07:13:22 PM) dshufelt: if you want to know more about the speech then check out the google video

(07:13:48 PM) dshufelt: err or our project documentation.

(07:13:52 PM) H264: I'lll have to email some to you later... however if it is only going to include my pictures then I don't want you to do it

(07:14:04 PM) dshufelt: The big one on the art package was the contest.

(07:14:04 PM) peanutb_: if all of mac's people are as boreing as that guy was, they wont be in buisness for much longer

(07:14:28 PM) NaNO2x: lol

(07:14:43 PM) H264: heh

(07:14:50 PM) dshufelt: yeah, he helped make us look like super heros

(07:14:52 PM) peanutb_: I have a few too.

(07:15:05 PM) ***NaNO2x will finially be migrating back to gnome on saturday

(07:15:06 PM) NaNO2x: Big Grin :)

(07:15:08 PM) H264: does designing a rocket nozzle on a mac count as boring?

(07:15:21 PM) peanutb_: and the MS person was a complete joke.

(07:15:24 PM) dshufelt: cool, like I said I'm going to post a $25.00 gift cert up as a prize

(07:15:37 PM) dshufelt: (the team will vote during a meeting)

(07:15:42 PM) NaNO2x: whats this prize d?

(07:15:58 PM) NaNO2x: brb

(07:16:13 PM) peanutb_: my internet access keeps dropping out.

(07:16:24 PM) dshufelt: NaNO2x - a $25.00 gift cert (and maybe some books)

(07:16:26 PM) peanutb_: stupid IKEA

(07:16:41 PM) peanutb_: dshufelt, which they have to review

(07:16:50 PM) dshufelt: Ok... Anyone interested in being a team scribe

(07:17:01 PM) andrewkk: what is that exactly?

(07:17:11 PM) dshufelt: yes, that's what I mean. The team will vote on their favorites.

(07:17:17 PM) H264: scribe? I don't even have a light scribe burner

(07:17:23 PM) desmondo left the room.

(07:17:36 PM) peanutb_: @H264--

(07:17:45 PM) dshufelt: well, the team scribe could write blurbs on the team blog about our happenings.

(07:17:45 PM) H264: :/

(07:17:55 PM) H264: oh, that thing

(07:18:09 PM) Ashex: take minutes of our meetings

(07:18:17 PM) Ashex: keep track of what projects we are working on

(07:18:35 PM) Ashex: and when we get approved, depending on officer structure, submit reports

(07:18:36 PM) ***H264 has to update the Oregon team's wiki

(07:18:52 PM) dshufelt: well, that's already done by the logger bot but the scribe could also clean them up or write the abridged version

(07:19:05 PM) peanutb_: what logger bot?

(07:19:18 PM) Ashex: :O

(07:19:21 PM) peanutb_: am i supposed to be logging this with PNWbot?

(07:19:23 PM) dshufelt: I thought we had a logger turned on?

(07:19:39 PM) peanutb_: sorta, but its for everything

(07:19:41 PM) ***dshufelt is logging the meeting

(07:19:53 PM) peanutb_: Ill set it up soon.

(07:20:18 PM) dshufelt: I got that but taking those logs and trimming them will be easier and quicker then trimming my gaim logs

(07:20:23 PM) andrewkk: wait we have a blog?

(07:20:27 PM) dshufelt: Yeah!

(07:20:37 PM) peanutb_: pnw.ubuntu-us.org/blog

(07:20:37 PM) dshufelt: because Paul is THE MAN!

(07:20:51 PM) Ashex: haha

(07:20:51 PM) peanutb_: but lets wait till drupal gets installed

(07:20:57 PM) Ashex: I log the chats in kvirc

(07:21:11 PM) peanutb_: ok.

(07:21:23 PM) dshufelt: anyway, team scribe is more fun then Ashex is making it sound.

(07:21:30 PM) Ashex: hehe

(07:21:36 PM) Ashex: well, those are some of the required duties

(07:21:42 PM) dshufelt: just write about us every once in a while and make us sound epic and exciting

(07:21:44 PM) Ashex: but it IS way more fun then it sounds

(07:21:48 PM) Ashex: job descriptions always sound lame

(07:21:50 PM) peanutb_: did ashex just say he wanted to do it?

(07:21:51 PM) dshufelt: Big Grin :)

(07:21:57 PM) Ashex: heeeeelllll no

(07:21:57 PM) Ashex: :P

(07:22:02 PM) dshufelt: Smile :)

(07:22:08 PM) H264: I think I read that he did between the lines

(07:22:24 PM) Ashex: as soon as I get my club chartered, I'll assume an officer position

(07:22:29 PM) Ashex: in the time being though, I'm just a speaker

(07:22:33 PM) dshufelt: He's already the team speaker. We can't give him all the jobs

(07:23:06 PM) H264: from team speaker to scribe is not a jump, more like a step

(07:23:06 PM) peanutb_: true

(07:23:06 PM) Ashex: hehe

(07:23:16 PM) andrewkk: well scribe is definitely something i could do, but i feel like i'm not very updated on the happenings on the group myself

(07:23:19 PM) peanutb_: how about H264?

(07:23:39 PM) dshufelt: Ok for now I am inspired (although short on time) and will try to continue bloging about the team in an epic manner

(07:23:45 PM) H264: hahaha, trust me, you don't want me to do it

(07:23:54 PM) peanutb_: andrewkk, you would be a great person for it.

(07:24:00 PM) Ashex: we really need to use the mailing list too

(07:24:24 PM) H264: but the mailing list takes forever for things to go through

(07:24:35 PM) ***dshufelt wrote a script to send email reminders about meetings out so he quits forgetting

(07:24:37 PM) Ashex: we using mailman?

(07:24:40 PM) andrewkk: do you guys use this channel much besides during these meetings?

(07:24:53 PM) dshufelt: yeah it's a mailman interface

(07:24:59 PM) dshufelt: yes

(07:25:02 PM) andrewkk: anything wrong with using a google group?

(07:25:20 PM) Ashex: hmm

(07:25:34 PM) NaNO2x: back

(07:25:41 PM) Ashex: I'm betting the reason it's laggy is because it's used by many loco teams

(07:25:45 PM) dshufelt: I'm down for google groups and stuff but I think it's easier if we stick to the infrastructure that we already have

(07:25:46 PM) Ashex: the mail server that is

(07:25:51 PM) H264: hmm

(07:26:03 PM) dshufelt: forums, mail list and IRC is a lot to keep track of at times

(07:26:07 PM) andrewkk: i always thought it made more sense to use tech that someone ELSE keeps running

(07:26:13 PM) H264: could we like have our own automated system?

(07:26:13 PM) Ashex: paul, do you have access to the MX entries of our site?

(07:51:08 PM) dshufelt: (07:26:30 PM) dshufelt: The mail server isn't that bad. Most people receive a daily digest though

(07:51:08 PM) dshufelt: (07:28:20 PM) dshufelt: I have been trying to contact people to see if I could help with the SPAM and config on the mailing servers. I would rather help fix the problem for everyone then abandon ship

(07:51:08 PM) dshufelt: (07:28:56 PM) dshufelt: Last but not least (we can continue talking after this of course) IRC / Forums-

(07:51:08 PM) dshufelt: (07:30:02 PM) dshufelt: We need to adhere to the Code of Conduct when using these tools. Not that any team members have abused them but I just wanted to make sure that we clarify that conversation should be appropriate for all audiences.

(07:51:08 PM) dshufelt: (07:32:01 PM) dshufelt: does anyone have anythings else they wanted to bring up?

(07:52:22 PM) NaNO2x: so on the channel we need to keep to code?

(07:53:19 PM) dshufelt: yeah, there was an issue a few weeks back with someone that thought it was cool to insult people. It actually made some people feel uncomfortable and I don't think thats at all cool

(07:54:06 PM) Ashex: who was it?

(07:54:07 PM) dshufelt: it wasn't a team member but still, better to clarify for everyone.

(07:54:07 PM) H264: I thought that guy was annoying

(07:54:09 PM) ***NaNO2x calls off the warez bot that was on the way

(07:54:09 PM) NaNO2x: :P

(07:54:15 PM) dshufelt: lol

(07:54:42 PM) andrewkk: especially when dealing with ubuntu i think thats a pretty important thing to remember.

(07:55:25 PM) ***dshufelt nods

(07:55:29 PM) NaNO2x: as long as cursing isn't disallowed completely and joking around about stuff then i'm good

(07:55:36 PM) NaNO2x: Wink ;)

(07:56:11 PM) dshufelt: joking is encouraged. Profanity should be kept to a minimal (I think we do a good job)

(07:58:13 PM) dshufelt: Anyway, was there anything else you guys wanted to discuss?

(07:58:22 PM) NaNO2x: we get through the lineup?

(07:58:44 PM) H264: umm, we need to set a dead line for the picture contest

(07:58:54 PM) dshufelt: yeah I think so.

(07:59:06 PM) H264: otherwise it will never get done

(07:59:15 PM) dshufelt: nope but I was thinking of putting it out a few months to encourage participation.

(07:59:57 PM) H264: well, yeah, make it three... or better yet time it to end right before fall term

(07:59:06 PM) NaNO2x: umm whats the update on becoming official

(08:00:04 PM) dshufelt: Ahh... I am going to send the application in for our team. We may get turned down but at least we will have tried. We'll continue to support the state region teams

(08:00:25 PM) NaNO2x: wait so whats the hold up so far and why would we get turned down?

(08:00:36 PM) dshufelt: and if you can make it to the team council meeting to discuss what you like (or dislike) about PNW that would be good.

(08:00:48 PM) NaNO2x: when is it

(08:00:51 PM) dshufelt: I'll send an email out with details when the time comes

(08:00:51 PM) NaNO2x: and where

(08:01:02 PM) NaNO2x: i'll help with making us official

(08:01:09 PM) dshufelt: we may get turned down because they are trying to get teams per state currently.

(08:01:15 PM) NaNO2x: btw, which mailing lists should i be on and how can i check which i'm on?

(08:01:31 PM) NaNO2x: ok, well i can talk for us definitely; I'm good at that

(08:01:37 PM) dshufelt: (there are no official odd ball regional teams like ours in the US)

(08:01:57 PM) NaNO2x: well we'll be the first Wink ;)

(08:02:00 PM) H264: well... the pacific north west is much less populated...

(08:02:09 PM) NaNO2x: oddly enough

(08:02:18 PM) H264: there is a good reason...

(08:02:36 PM) NaNO2x: umm because to many people are either non tech or pro m$

(08:02:44 PM) dshufelt: if you are on the PNW list then you'll get all the emails about this team. You may get the same email twice if you join other lists but that's because we want to make sure people are informed.

(08:03:00 PM) NaNO2x: i realize that when i graduate theres a high certainty i'll be working there, but that doesn't mean i have to like them :p

(08:03:07 PM) NaNO2x: pnw i'm on

(08:03:13 PM) dshufelt: lol

(08:03:19 PM) NaNO2x: do i need to be on washington

(08:03:20 PM) NaNO2x: i mean any special washington list

(08:03:39 PM) H264: and there is participation at local events in different states by everybody

(08:04:00 PM) H264: good reason #2

(08:04:11 PM) dshufelt: if you want to join then you will be sure not to miss any WA specific events that PNW isn't involved with (there haven't been any yet)

(08:04:29 PM) NaNO2x: naw

(08:04:35 PM) NaNO2x: just tell me here if there is something :P

(08:04:35 PM) H264: we need to compile a list of good reasons before the ubuntu-meeting

(08:04:44 PM) dshufelt: we can do that

(08:05:10 PM) NaNO2x: yeah we can make a nice speech Big Grin :)

(08:05:39 PM) H264: well, I would rater present the facts and let them decide

(08:05:40 PM) dshufelt: Ashex is doing the next one (as long as it's not in Oregon)

(08:05:51 PM) dshufelt: exactly, it's just another tool.

(08:06:14 PM) dshufelt: it may be better for the job you're working on and then again it might not.

(08:06:49 PM) dshufelt: (OK) so it is better and we know it but- ohhh yeah! I have a bunch of project outlines that I have to post up soon.

(08:08:57 PM) NaNO2x: cool

(08:09:12 PM) H264: well, even if we abs(can't) get officialness for PNW, we could still get official for Wa and Or and just pool the resources so it would be basically the same as if PNW was official

(08:09:19 PM) NaNO2x: well getting gslug going will be a big thing

(08:09:25 PM) NaNO2x: we can officially say thats a pnw project

(08:09:26 PM) NaNO2x: Wink ;)

(08:09:38 PM) NaNO2x: lets try for pnw

(08:09:43 PM) NaNO2x: then wa and or later

(08:09:52 PM) dshufelt: Yeah but it would honestly be better to have all three be official IMHO

(08:10:03 PM) dshufelt: I want more not less Big Grin :)

(08:10:21 PM) NaNO2x: Smile :)

(08:10:30 PM) NaNO2x: pnw first because its best!

(08:10:52 PM) dshufelt: we have to at least try... We're the ones that inspired the rest to the similar teams.

(08:11:09 PM) NaNO2x: aye

(08:11:15 PM) dshufelt: we owe it to our fans... This is for our PUBLIC MAN!

(08:11:46 PM) H264: *republic

(08:11:47 PM) NaNO2x: *cheers are heard from the croud*

(08:11:47 PM) H264: Wink ;)

(08:12:15 PM) dshufelt: it's about FREEDOM! It's about DEMOCRACY! and it's about a darn good Project line up! Smile :)

(08:12:42 PM) Ashex: I'll be back...

(08:12:46 PM) ***Ashex is going to play some games

(08:12:56 PM) Ashex left the room (quit: "Just Wing It").

(08:12:57 PM) dshufelt: I knew that would be too much for Ashex

(08:12:59 PM) H264: heh
