txwikingerdscassel: UDS is ongoing :-)00:08
dscasselbregma: How's UDS? :) ANything exciting?00:08
bregmalots of server-side stuff, not my main area of interest00:08
dscasseltxwikinger: Yeah, I've been dropping in and out of sessions. (mostly community, but some desktop)00:08
txwikinger dscassel There is a Kubuntu Active Plasma session scheduled now00:09
dscasselbregma: I hear ya.  The big reveal in the keynote was a server with a lot of cores or something.  Which is cool, I guess.00:10
bregmaI think the desktop focus for Quantal is going to be refining the theming and styling00:10
bregmathe "cool" multi-core server was an ARM-based server, I think, so it uses less power00:11
bregmaif you need a render farm in your living room or something00:12
dscasselbregma: I'll be interested to see what happens with the HUD...00:14
dscasselAnyway, I should probably get on with the meeting.00:14
dscasselUpcoming events!00:14
dscasselAs always, watch http://loco.ubuntu.com/00:14
dscasselEr, watch http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/ubuntu-ca00:15
dscasselAnyone from Ubuntu Quebec here?00:15
dscasselI had an awesome release party. Photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ubuntucanada/00:16
BobJonkmanlag lag lag on this phone00:17
dscasselgenii-around says turnout was down in Toronto, but he didn't have time to promote.  Still, parties are always good.00:17
dscasselBobJonkman: What are you using for a client?00:18
BobJonkmanYay for dscassel's parties!00:18
* BobJonkman is using yaaic on phone ..00:19
txwikingerAny plans for multi-cultural festival?00:19
dscasselOn the mailing list, rrnwexec suggested hosting parties divorced to release (computers are banned), focusing on bringing in new people.00:20
dscasseltxwikinger: Not from me. Interested in doing something? :)00:20
txwikingerHave to see.. very busy00:20
dscasseltxwikinger: I can relate. :)00:20
txwikingerNobody stops anybody from having any parties00:20
txwikingerSo I am not really sure what that has to do with Ubuntu00:21
dscasseltxwikinger: I wouldn't know how to run something like that successfully.  Not without a lot of work (which I don't have time for) or help.00:21
dscasselI don't tend to go to those sort of parties. :)00:22
txwikingerWell.. I would like to know how many people use Ubuntu after such a party00:22
txwikingerI do not have any problems with such parties... I just think it has nothing to do with Ubuntu00:22
txwikingerI mean.. I go to Entrepreneurs meetings and do not use my computer there... but I do not do that as part of the Ubuntu LoCo00:23
txwikingerThat does not preclude that I meet people and sometime in the future I invite them to an Ubuntu event00:24
txwikingerSo.. all power to you, but what does it has to do with Ubuntu?00:24
dscasselThere's something to be said for community-building. I can see that. I just don't know how what Randall's proposing would work. Like, what do you *do*?00:24
txwikingerWell.. also.. what is the success criteria00:25
txwikingerDoes he track the increase of Ubuntu users?00:25
dscasselDunno.00:25
txwikingerIf we do an install fest or a release party.. we give support so we have a success criteria00:26
dscasselBobJonkman: Who's "Ade" (our team reports reporter)00:26
dscasseltxwikinger: And cake!00:27
txwikingerYeah!00:27
dscasselI'd love to set up a booth at the multi-cultural fest, but I'm running a bit ragged lately.00:28
dscasselWhen is it, anyway?00:28
txwikingerNo idea00:28
txwikingerI always forget until it is happening00:28
dscasselhttp://www.kwmc.on.ca/html/festival.html00:29
txwikinger23/24 June00:29
dscasselMy parents are visiting that weekend. :/ Also my birthday party...00:29
txwikingerHey.. a party :-)00:30
DarwinSurvivorso the party's at dscassel's? :D00:30
txwikingerbut the food is better at the festival00:31
dscasselSure!00:31
dscasseltxwikinger: Any update on the website? I haven't thought about it for a while.00:34
dscasselDidn't even update it for the release. :/00:34
txwikingerNope.00:34
dscasselWe're still waiting on a theme for Drupal 7, right?00:34
txwikingerpeople seem only ask for permissions and otherwise disappear00:34
txwikingeryes..00:34
dscasselHm.00:36
dscasselI'd say we should do something about that, but I know I'm not going to do anything about it. :)00:38
txwikingerhehe00:38
dscasselThere's also team reports, which we should also do something about.00:42
dscasselI'll probably get to that.  In that I'll write a script which pulls events from the LoCo directory.00:42
dscasselBut it would be awesome if someone maintained them.00:43
* dscassel hears crickets.00:43
* bregma watches a tumbleweed roll by00:44
BobJonkmanlag?00:44
