PiciPriceChild: What was that ban about? 00:03
PriceChildPici, quit message00:04
PiciPriceChild: simple woman?00:04
PriceChildPici, one of them00:04
PiciOr the Intellegent American one00:04
PriceChildthat's another00:04
PiciRather, that one makes more sense... 00:04
PriceChildtogether with the french one00:04
PriceChildthe microsoft one.... meh not too bothered00:05
PriceChildwell, not as bothered00:05
naliothi actually think that was a compliment00:05
PiciThe woman one wasnt bad, the american one was.00:05
* nalioth wasn't bothered at all00:06
PiciI was only bothered because I misread the 'simple woman' one wrong at first.  00:07
PriceChildIn light of current events I think its worth asking for change.00:07
naliothi think we've wasted far more brain cycles than it deserves00:13
no0ticjpatrick, sorry for the inconvenience but I invited codicealpha in #ubuntu-it-ops...01:05

LjLno01:42
mannytu_can someone use my name without my password?01:43
LjLmannytu_: it just must have been some sort of accident, because it wasn't just your nickname, but your very computer's network address. i'll let you back into #ubuntu, but please make sure you don't accidentally paste lines into your client, because otherwise we'll just have to believe you're lying about it01:43

LjL[Tue Nov 13 2007] [21:30:16] <jdong>    Pici: you picky when it comes to rubbin'?02:17
LjL[Tue Nov 13 2007] [21:30:29] <jdong>    I can't believe I just said that02:17

stdinanyone else getting /msg's from kahrytan?02:56
LjLno, what about?02:57
stdin[02:56]<kahrytan> What kitofhawaii said about me in Jan 28, 2008, was complete bullshit. it was all lies and slander.  ref: http://irclogs.ubuntu.com/2008/01/28/%23ubuntu-ops.txt02:57
* PriceChild headdesks02:58
LjLstdin: and why would he tell you about that?02:58
stdinLjL: nothing, just came out of the blue02:58
LjLstdin, i suggest you tell him to stop bothering you with unsolicited PMs.02:58
stdinI wasn't even active here, was working on some c++ code for the last few hours02:58
PriceChildLjL, perhaps we suggest he PMs me? *ducks*02:59
PiciHe wasn't here either.02:59
LjLPriceChild: no, but we could suggest he joins here.02:59
LjLno PMs thank you.02:59
PriceChild-irc don't you mean? ;)02:59
PriceChildAnd I was being sarcy.03:00
jdong21:59 <+LjL> no PMs thank you.03:00
* jdong giggles03:00
LjLespecially in the light of the fact that he asked for no PMs from us03:00
stdinI haven't replied, and I don't plan to. don't want to even give them the chance for a dialogue03:00
LjLPriceChild: -irc should do, yeah.03:00
stdinalthough the'll probably read the logs for this conversation and pm me again in a few days, oh well03:01
LjLstdin, so let him. he clearly requested that ops don't "harrass" him by PMing in. i don't see why, in this particular instance, you shouldn't respect his will.03:02
mneptokwhy is he still allowed in #u-us-hi?03:27
mneptokif ops are not allowed to speak to him, then he has no business in Ubuntu channels03:28
ubotuIn #ubuntu-offtopic, PriceChild said: !unforget anything03:46

Hobbseepeople, is it trolling if you're saying something accurate?11:45
Seeker`Hobbsee: example?11:45
Hobbsee[22:13] * Fujitsu checks how far read-only-launchpad has been deferred.11:46
Hobbsee[22:14] <Hobbsee> Fujitsu: it doesn't matter how long it's been deferred currently.  they'll just keep redeferring it by a month, as they wish.11:46
Hobbsee[22:18] <soren> So... How's the trolling business these days?11:46
elkbuntuHobbsee, it's all in the tone in such a situation11:53
Hobbseeyeah well11:54
* Seeker` doesn'nt understand what is going on in that conversation, or how it is trolling11:55
HobbseeSeeker`: it's launchpad milestones, and features getting delayed11:55
Hobbseeelkbuntu: so, uh, what's the polite form of saying that launchpad tends to postpone it's release dates, so one can not assume that a given feature will show up when the suggested date says?11:57
Hobbsee:)11:57
Garyjust what you typed is clear enough11:58
Seeker`"the release dates tend not to be accurate as features are usually delayed"12:00

jpatrickwe still have to start memberships20:52
anthonyAll righty - why was the stuff about loco hosting removed?20:52
LjLnot to do with the CC20:53
jpatrickalready discuss at pervious meeting20:53
anthonyWell, nothing changed since the last meeting.20:54
jpatrickanthony: Canonical team are overworked appartently20:54
anthonyjpatrick: Yes, that's been their line since at least last October.20:54
jpatricknot much we can do about it :)20:55
anthonyThere's "overworked" and there's "just not paying attention to that anymore"20:55
jpatrickThey did my requests at rt.ubuntu.com20:55
anthonyThey said they were hiring new people, and things would improve "within weeks"20:55
anthonymeh, whatever20:57
* anthony hunkers down for posingaspopular and greg-g20:57
jpatrickanthony: just poke them in #canonical-sysadmin when you need something :)20:58
anthonyjpatrick: I have.  Many, many times.  So has Madpilot.  We've been filing tickets, sending e-mails, poking people on IRC, and still nothing.  We've even had someone in #canonical-sysadmin promise action within 24 hours, on three separate occasions, and not come through.21:00
anthonyWe've been working on getting a web site up ever since Ubuntu Canada was approved over a year ago.21:01
jpatrickanthony: wow, odd... they've always helped me when I asked...21:01
anthonyjpatrick: Yeah, I don't know what the deal is...21:02
jpatrickanthony: I find them have a thing with "security" all the time :)21:03
jpatrickthey*, but don't blame them, it's their machines21:03
anthonyjpatrick: right now the "security" excuse is being used to explain why we can't edit our Drupal theme, and are stuck with broken links that users keep complaining to me about because Canonical gave us a broken theme.21:06
jpatrickanthony: surely you must have at least one ssh account on the machine..21:08
anthonyjpatrick: No.  No SSH nor FTP.21:08
