[09:54] Evening all, many here for the meeting? [10:03] Could be a short one then. [10:04] Hi there, I am here for the meeting. It is my first time. [10:04] Good evening kookey50, welcome along [10:05] Looks like it's just us two for now so I'll wait a few minutes in case stragglers pop by. [10:05] No worries. [10:10] oh meeting [10:11] Evening md_5, looks like we're a bit light on tonight. [10:12] do we even have enough people to start a meeting :| [10:12] Thiere is no real minimum [10:13] I'll start it anyway and we can at least look over the agenda, there isn't a lot but it might be useful to some reading the logs.

[10:14] cheers buddy [10:15] greetings [10:15] starts 8:30pm right? [10:15] 8 [10:15] #lurk [10:15] oh [10:15] I believed it was meant to be 2000 [10:15] right... [10:15] Team Meeting: Sun 12/08/2012 @ 2000 AEST (GMT+10) [10:15] aplogies [10:15] No worries, you're here now, did you want to go over the topic you emailed me earlier? [10:15] ubuntu friendly? [10:16] Yep [10:16] well folks head over to https://friendly.ubuntu.com/ [10:16] #topic Ubuntu Friendly [10:16] #link https://friendly.ubuntu.com/ [10:16] great program of recommending systems that are friendly to ubuntu [10:17] once you install there is an easy process of checking your system [10:17] jellyware: I think it's good to let people konw what works. It would also make buying new hardware easier than trawling through generic websites. [10:18] I think this program is not that old [10:18] there is still a lot of hardware that needs to be checked [10:18] I did see something a while ago like it but I think this particular version is pretty new. [10:19] once you check your system using the tool provied in 12.04+ you can post your results on the ubuntu friendly webiste [10:20] #link https://friendly.ubuntu.com/participate/ [10:20] It's a nice, easy way to help others in the community. No need to learn how to program, no need to turn up to an event miles away. Just 10 - 15 minutes of effort at home. [10:21] nice [10:23] as soon as Im donna Im gonna run the test and upload [10:23] sweet md_5 [10:27] Well I guess we can move on to the next topic [10:27] #topic CD Distribution [10:27] yep [10:27] I just wanted to bring up the fact that I still have about 100 CDs of Ubuntu 12.04 sitting here to distribute. [10:27] If anyone has any good ideas on how to use them effectively I'm all ears. [10:28] the new version drops in a couple of months [10:28] Indeed, but also this is a LTS so it will still be useful [10:29] if you run out of ideas I can send you fundage to send cds to me for distibution on ubuntu.net.au [10:29] ooh they improved the system test [10:29] if you run out of ideas [10:29] think we've lost md_5 [10:29] jellyware: how many do you think you could realistically use? [10:29] Just want to put a number on it [10:29] 20, 50, all 100? [10:29] realistically. not many [10:30] we're running at an order every 2-3 days at the moment [10:30] it was much busier when 12.04 first came out [10:31] if I paypalled you, can you send me 20cds? [10:31] Well I've found sending them in packs of 5 the most cost effective, they only charge 1.80 or so for that. As soon as you start putting in 10 or so it skyrockets to 5 or6 bucks a hit. [10:32] md_5 or kookey50, would either of you have use for some 12.04 official CDs to hand out to friends, colleagues, randoms you meet? [10:32] one day I will get back to my idea of getting them into public libraries [10:32] not any more use than making my own [10:33] md_5: no worries, sometimes official looking ones in proper sleeves get better reception so just thought I"d offer. [10:34] lets distribute them while they are still warm... [10:36] burn my own as well [10:36] I've handed 20 or so out, even got a copy on the lunch pc at work. [10:37] I just asked my flatmate in the kitchen. he's an it student at macquarie uni [10:37] his friends could use some [10:37] some [10:38] jellyware: I'll put a bunch in a satchel for you to use as you can [10:38] head_victim, how much can I sent you via paypal? [10:39] You're in Sydney these days or still in Melbourne? [10:40] sydney [10:40] 3kg satchels are $11.40 so I'll just put some in that if you like [10:41] cool [10:42] just looking at austpost. phew. austpost says ubuntu is "ok" http://peter.id.au/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Screenshot.png [10:42] If you email me your address I'll put it in the post [10:43] sweet [10:43] If anyone else can think of useful ways of distributing the CDs please let me know and I'll do the same. [10:43] jared, is your gmail your paypal address? [10:43] The only requirement I would like to put on the CDs is that if you receive them, you write an email or website story about how they're used :) [10:43] jellyware: yeah that's it. [10:46] Thanks everyone for attending, not sure why it was such a low turnout but perhaps we could be more proactive next time in announcing it. Sorry I forgot to put it out on the social media circles. [10:46] Did anyone have anything to bring up that wasn't on the agenda? [10:46] thanks for hosting head_victim [10:52] #endmeeting [10:52] Meeting ended Sun Aug 12 10:52:41 2012 UTC.
