ebel#topic Website20:09
ebelright, the ubuntu-ie website hosting on blacknight has expired.20:09
ebelit being 1 year since we renewed :)20:09
ebelSo what do we want to do?20:09
airurandoBlacknight have very kindly sponsored two years hosting now.20:10
ebelWe could (a) ask blacknight to please donate another year of hosting (as they have done very kindly for 2 years) or (b) tell them we don't need it anymore20:10
Victor9098What sort of traffic did it get? Is it worth keeping up or will the loco.ubuntu do (with twitter/G+ accounts etc.)?20:10
airurandono website20:10
airurandono need for a host20:11
ebelVictor9098: there is no website. No-one has created or set up or maintained the website.20:11
tdr112we never use it20:11
ebelHence why I'm leaning towards cancellation.20:11
Victor9098ok...thats that then :D20:11
tdr112we have had it for 2 years and not done anything20:11
MokmeisterSeems reasonable.20:11
Victor9098I always go to and link to the loco.ubuntu20:11
tdr112ebel: call a vote on it20:11
ebeltwas a nice idea. Alas nothing happened20:11

meetingologyMotion carried20:14
ebelpoor old airurando's internet is poor…20:14
Victor9098We really do not need to be paying for hosting, plenty of options to get the message out and raise awareness20:14
ebelanything else on the website?20:14
ebelVictor9098: aye, we have a good bare minimum now20:14
tdr112ebel: can we email blacknight and thank them20:15
ebeltdr112: yes, I'll do that.20:15
tdr112for the hosting so far so we leave on good terms20:15
ebelyes, it was very kind of them to do that for us.20:15
MokmeisterShould we thank them publicly?20:15
ebelMokmeister: yes.20:16
airurando2awful shame we never got up and running with a website on blacknight.20:16
ebelairurando2: aye.20:16

ebel#topic CDs20:16
ebelright, we (i.e. I) have the ubuntu ie loco set of CDs for this release.20:17
ebelThey are from canonical, professional pressed CDs, and for promotion of ubuntu within ireland20:17
ebelif you think you can help with that, send me a SAE and i'll send you some CDs.20:17
tdr112we could give some out at makerfaire20:18
ebeluptake has been… slow… there are loads of CDs left.20:18
ebelsuggestions welcome…20:18
Victor9098I just upgraded all the fam over the web (and always have a LiveUSB on me :D )20:18
ebeltdr112: good idea. I was tempted to go to that. P'haps I should hand you over some CDs shortly just in case20:18
MokmeisterEbel, as I said, I've put out an ad at work, have 12 requests already.20:19
ebelMokmeister: kewl. yep saw them emails. Good to see interest20:19
MokmeisterDid you get the sae yet? Probably not20:19
MokmeisterI only sent it monday20:19
ebelMokmeister: not yet20:20
ebelany other ideas wrt CDs?20:20
ebelairurando made a good point (ages ago) that since this is a LTS, it'll be useful for years for people.20:21
tdr112have another ubuntu hour in late july20:21
ebelSo there's no rush to get rid of these soon. They won't be obseleted in a few months20:21
airurandoI think the life long learning festivals in Cork and Limerick could be a good place to use these CDs20:22
MokmeisterThe lifelong learning festival in limerick was in may though I thought?20:23
airurandopeople from both Nexus cork and MilkLabs Limerick have expressed initial interest20:23
tdr112maybe if we hit up some coder dojos20:23
airurandoMokmeister indeed, I'm thinking 201320:23
MokmeisterI think the coder dojos would be a great idea20:23
ebelaye coder dojo is a good idea20:23
tdr112ok how about i take up the job of contacting some of them20:24
MokmeisterYeah, I could contact some in Limerick, Clare, maybe Kerry area20:25
ebelthat would be very helpful20:25
ebelsince we need to knock on their door20:25
ebelyeah, email em all20:26
tdr112i will contact some of the dublin ones20:27
MokmeisterI was only looking into coder dojos there the other day (my kids are 8 and 7), and of the ones I liked at seem to be contactable electronically20:27
airurandoIf there is a meetup in Dublin soon i'd like to take some.20:28
MokmeisterI'm doing this from my phone, you'll have to forgive me!20:28
ebelthanks guys20:28
ebelanother ubuntu hour is prob a good idea, sometime20:28
ebelso if the coder dojos say "yes please", what do ye wanna do? Just send them my address? I can do the stuffing envelopes? Something else?20:30
ebel(likewise lifelong learning, will people (who?) do the same again?)20:30
airurandoI'll try to keep a track on Lifelong Learning20:31
airurandofor 201320:31
ebelcool, thanks airurando20:31
ebelye all know my address to give out? If not ping me, i'll send it to ye.20:33
