KombuchaKipBobJonkman: Ubuntu forum I think you have to sign in to see message attachments.23:15
dscasselKombuchaKip: Huh. Is that all rendered, or just the lander superimposed on Mars photos?23:15
* BobJonkman grumbles about yet more logging inning23:15
KombuchaKipdscassel / BobJonkman: It's real. Very exciting. Details on how we got it out here: https://www.avaneya.com/temp/Avaneya%20Crew%20Handbook.pdf23:15
KombuchaKipBobJonkman: That you certainly don't need to login for.23:16
* txwikinger is on his way23:17

dscasselSee you soon, txwikinger :)23:19
dscasselOkay, we don't have much of an agenda today, but we should get started...23:19
KombuchaKipdscassel: It is, but we needed the Viking Lander images to make the material shaders realistic.23:19
* BobJonkman grumbles that he has to log into http://ubuntuforums.org and not https://ubuntuforums.org23:20
dscasselUbuntu Global Jam is coming up September 2-4.23:20
dscasselWe're going to host a jam here at Kwartzlab (the hackerspace in KW)23:20
KombuchaKipBobJonkman: Don't worry. Soon we'll have them all in PNG for you to download.23:21
dscasselThere seemed to be interest in hosting one in Toronto at Free Geek, but I haven't heard what's going on with that.23:21
dscasselI need to hunt down a point contact person there.23:21
dscasselIf people want to run one, it's pretty fun.23:22
dscasselNot as easy as an Ubuntu Hour, but a great way to get people contributing to the project.23:22
dscasselAnybody running (heard about) other Jams?23:22
dscasselI'm assuming that's a no.23:24
zeroedoutnope :)23:24
dscasselhakimsheriff: Nothing in Montreal?23:24
hakimsheriffdscassel: not sure23:25
dscassel(Quebec has its own loco, but I like to know these things so I can tell people about them if they ask. :)23:25
hakimsheriffIm not very involved with Ubuntu Quebec23:25
dscasselhakimsheriff: Still haven't made it out to an Ubuntu hour, eh?23:26
hakimsheriffnot really,23:26
hakimsheriffim currently VERY busy23:26

BobJonkmanAre you going to MagicFab, or is MagicFab coming to KW?23:27
dscasselBobJonkman: I'm going to Montreal. :)23:27
dscasselAnyway, Ubuntu Developer Week is on this week in #ubuntu-classroom.23:27
dscasselIf you're interested in programming for or on Ubutu, it's a great place to learn about different technologies and techniques.23:28
fhassounehThanks a lot dscassel23:29
dscasselno problem, fhassouneh :)23:29
dscasselHope it's helpful.23:29
dscasselI've attended in the past.23:29
dscasselI kinda forgot about it this week (doesn't help I'm at work when it's going).23:29
fhassounehoh ok, it should be interesting23:30
dscasselI'll probably fire up Lernid and have it running in the backround at work.23:30
dscasselUbuntu Vancouver's Randall Ross is running a similar event: Ubuntu Community Week.23:31
dscasselSimilar, but about building the community.23:31
sipherdeedscassel: thanks for mentionning it again, i am back from vacation so i will check #ubuntu-classroom.23:32
dscasselNo problem, sipherdee :)23:32
dscasselIt's July 18-22 in #ubuntu-classroom.23:32
dscassel(Although I think they're pushing Lernid, because you get slides and it's easier for non-technical people).23:33
cgrozaToo late for the meeting?23:33
dscasselcgroza: Nope! We're still going.23:34
dscasselAlthough we're coming to the end of the posted agenda.23:34
dscasselAnybody else running, know of events they'd like to talk about?23:35
BobJonkmanIs the Ubuntu CD Bribery Program still on?23:35
dscasselAssuming the answer is no, anything I can do to convince you it's a good idea?23:35
dscasselBobJonkman: Yeah, but no bites.23:35
dscasselUbuntu CD Bribery Program is I will send you a package of 10 CDs if you run an Ubuntu Hour in your town, and post pictures/blog about it.23:36
dscasselA bargain!23:36
dscasselI'll probably throw in stickers and buttons too. :D23:36
BobJonkmanMaybe I can distribute some CDs at events like the Guelph Web Makers Meetup and the KW Design/Developers Meetup23:37
hakimsheriffBe Right Back,23:37
dscasselUbuntu Hours are fun and easy! You just find a nice cafe somewhere, advertise when you're going to be there (twitter/identica/forums/the mailing list/loco.ubuntu.com)23:38
dscasselAnd people show up! You meet other cool Ubuntu people! And you can make nefarious plans for release parties and whatnot. :D23:38
dscasselOr you dont' have to talk about ubuntu at all, if other things come up.23:39
dscasselTotally informal.23:39
BobJonkmanAnd we have one in KW next Wednesday23:39
dscasselBobJonkman: I brought CDs for you to KWLUG, but you weren't there. :(23:39
dscasselI'll have some to give you next week.23:40
* hakimsheriff is back!23:40
BobJonkman*grins* because #gwmm is tomorrow...23:40
BobJonkmanBut #kwdm is the week after Ubuntu Hour23:40
dscasselBobJonkman: You should be here! I've got them in my car. :)23:41
BobJonkmanThat'll teach me...23:42
dscasselfhassouneh: You should totally run an Ubuntu Hour in St John's.23:42
dscasselAnything else anyone wants to talk about?23:43
fhassounehdscassel: I think its a great idea, i think i'll run one soon, i just need some information and ill definitely find some ppl to help me here23:43
dscasselfhassouneh: Great!23:43
dscasselYeah, see if you can get in touch with rgreening. :D23:44
dscasselAnd let me know if you have any questions about it. There's really nothing to it.23:44
fhassounehok i think it will be a fun experience23:44
dscasselWe gotta get one going regularly in Linuxcaffe in Toronto. I should poke the Free Geek guys.23:45
fhassounehby the way all the computers at memorial univerity have ubuntu 8.04 installed on them23:45
dscasselfhassouneh: Yeah, that's where U Waterloo is too.23:45
fhassounehdscassel: yeah thats awesome23:45
dscasselI'm just happy I'm able to run Ubuntu at work now.  No more Windows! :D23:46
BobJonkmanI've been running rogue Ubuntu at work for about 6 months.23:47
dscasselBobJonkman: I'm making it possible for other developers to run Ubuntu at work too. :D23:47
BobJonkmanNeed Virtual Box to run WinXP for MS-only apps like OneNote and Exchange (because the Exchange server is too damaged to properly deal with UTF-8 in SMTP)23:48
dscasselOur old IDE is Windows-only.  I'm making a new cross-platform one based on Eclipse. :D23:48
dscasselBobJonkman: Yeah. I need IE for a few things still.23:49
dscasselI installed Crossover Pro trial to get Office running because I need to mark up Word docs sometimes.23:49
dscassel(I'm thinking the meeting is pretty much over, btw. But I'll be around for a bit if anyone wants to chat)23:50
BobJonkmanI'm hoping the money argument will win over management types to adopt Linux - no OS license fees, no server license fees, no application license fees...23:50
dscasselBobJonkman: For us, we support Linux for our customers, but developers aren't testing it.23:50
BobJonkmanMaybe we should form a special interest group, the Ubuntu Rogues23:50
fhassounehnice to meet everyone today, sand I'll keep u all updated about the ubuntu hour :)23:51
fhassounehhave to go now23:51
dscasselGetting developers developing on Linux cuts down on embarassing bugs.23:51
BobJonkmanBye fhassouneh!23:51
dscasselSee you, fhassouneh. thanks for coming out. :)23:51
fhassounehdscassel: see you23:52
hakimsherifffhassouneh: Goodbye!23:52
dscasselBobJonkman: Ubuntu Rogues. I like that. Infiltrate and assimilate. :D23:58
