nathwillha. courtesy of bkerensa17:01
c_smiththis might be one thing I would use almost as much as games! XD17:02
c_smithhopefully it's before the 2012 catastrophy that I think is just people overreacting to the end of the Mayan calandar17:04
bkerensac_smith: www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/10/native-netflix-client-coming-linux-in-12-months/17:20
bkerensait was already discussed17:20
* bkerensa just noticed it17:21
bkerensawell off to a meeting17:21
c_smithhaha. nice, gl! :D17:21
=== nathan_w is now known as nathwill
c_smithbkerensa, is there a set date for the IRC meeting that was postponed?19:48
bkerensac_smith: Not yet however I'm thinking it might be good just to roll it into this months since there were not any super important items I had and nobody sent me any agenda items19:52
c_smithokay, that works.19:52
bkerensaI'm hoping to have a solid weekend date for our release party soon though I have to make a call on wednesday19:52
bkerensait will likely be a Saturday two weeks after the 13th19:52
c_smithcool, I'll be looking forward to that.19:53
bkerensaNotably.... I think we might livestream the release party19:53
c_smiththat would be awesome.19:53
c_smitheither way, I'm still going to try to make it up there.19:53
c_smithlikely going to be using Kubuntu, though! ;)19:54
bkerensac_smith: Also like I have said I encourage you and tgm4883 and a number of the other Salem Area people to maybe setup some Ubuntu Hours19:54
bkerensaYou can also reach out to the Salem LUG people....19:54
bkerensac_smith: I plan to be in Salem in November for a few days and was even thinking we could do a Ubuntu Hour and grab lunch if all pans out properly19:55
c_smithhmmmm, ok, I'll try to get that set up, but with the only transportation I have freely being the Cherriots buses, I'll have to see if I can get it to be on a weekday because the bus system doesn't run on weekends.19:56
c_smiththe other modes of transportation I have are subject to change at any time, because I don't pay them, and I live with them19:57
c_smithbut I prefer buses anyway! :P19:57
Brian_Hbkerensa: so is the release party still during the week or did it get moved to sat/sun?20:10
c_smithbkerensa, if I were to have an Ubuntu Hour here in Salem every Wednesday (given I don't have plans which is unlikely) would that be a good day? like I said, Weekdays which I am not in school are best for me, and I ask this because this might be a problem for other member, it would likely be in the evening. I already have a coffee shop contacted for hanging out, it'd be another quick call if I needed to let them know this was happening20:11
c_smithholy great wall of text, batman! :P20:11
bkerensaBrian_H: It will be on a weekend likely the 22nd.... It wont be at PuppetLabs since they have people using their space but I'm hoping that I can finalize an arrangement with Backspace in Portland on Wednesday20:11
Brian_Hsweet! I can come then :D20:12
Brian_HI'll put it on my calendar20:12
c_smithIt's likely I could come then, too, but that's subject to change like anything else.20:12
bkerensac_smith: If that works for you sure... Make an effort to kickstart some stuff in Salem and you can always tweak days and times to best suit the people who attend.20:12
bkerensaOh and notably I'm sorry I was unable to do the meeting (I kinda had a date weekend with my fiancee from Friday till Sunday) in fact I rarely used the net or checked my e-mail ;)20:13
c_smithtrue, who could I contact to help kick off this? I may start this this coming Wednesday, but not sure/.20:14
c_smithheh, I remember getting that email, Mailing list ftw!20:14
c_smithgood thing I have my Hotmail account forwarding to my Gmail.20:14
c_smithbkerensa, is there anyone I could contact to help give the Salem area Ubuntu hour?20:16
bkerensac_smith: I would send a e-mail proposing your idea to the mailing list... and additionally "ethan" who pops in this channel from time to time is trying to revive Salem LUG (Linux Users Group)20:16
bkerensaNotably, Ubuntu Hours are informal social events where local users of Ubuntu and other distros can get together and socialize and talk linux20:17
bkerensaso you dont have to cater or anything20:17
bkerensayou could likely even meet at a Library or something20:17
c_smiththe Ubuntu Hour wiki page calls for a Piece of clothing with the Ubuntu logo, would that Oregon Global Jam shirt count?20:18
c_smithheh, not sure how the library would work, but I'll call them about this in a bit.20:18
bkerensaWe donated $0.50 on your behalf to:20:19
bkerensaBoys & Girls Club of America.20:19
c_smiththat's a good cause. but did they ask your permission?20:20
bkerensac_smith: My server is getting epic traffic20:20
c_smithis that good or bad?20:21
bkerensac_smith: I selected that charity... Its through the SurveyMonkey Contribute program20:21
bkerensac_smith: Good20:21
c_smithah, ok20:21
bkerensac_smith: OMG Ubuntu, cNet, lilputting, iheartubuntu and TechRepublic20:21
bkerensaall sending me so much traffic20:21
c_smithalso, is Ethan subscribed to the Mailing List?20:22
c_smithI'd believe so, but not sure.20:22
bkerensaYeah I think he is20:23
c_smithcool, I'll put the Salem LUG proposal in the same message to him.20:23
c_smithor should I make that a seperate message?20:24
bkerensayeah same is fine20:24
bkerensaLooks like Ubuntu Oregon is in the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter today too20:24

bkerensaBrian_H: Nah but I got a iPhone so I figured I might subscribe to one so I can have something to do when I'm on the bus20:36

Brian_Hheck yea I can understand that20:39
Brian_Hluckily my house isn't that far :)20:39
