[12:10] <@srevilak> when we get to (2), I'll need to ask what a "by-election" is [12:15] <@srevilak> shall we proceed with conference location? [12:15] <@jokeefe> in the last french election, one or more winning candidates for the expat seats were remove. so they are redoing the election for those seats [12:15] <@jokeefe> wanted to see if there were any other topics for us to discuss on Sunday. [12:16] <@jokeefe> no problem talking about any of them in prep for Sunday, of course [12:18] <@jokeefe> any other topics folks want to bring up? [12:20] <@srevilak> I'd like to set up some working meetings for the tech committee. But perhaps that's more of a tech committee thing [12:21] <@jokeefe> agree for all committees [12:22] == SplendidSpoon [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection] [12:22] <@jokeefe> srevilak, do you have time to put the costs for the different sites in a nice tabular format? [12:22] == SplendidSpoon [] has joined #masspirates [12:22] == mode/#masspirates [+o SplendidSpoon] by [4Q] [12:22] == mode/#masspirates [+v SplendidSpoon] by [4Q] [12:22] == mode/#masspirates [+l 20] by [4Q] [12:23] <@srevilak> jokeefe: sure. I'll go back through my notes and put something together [12:24] <@jokeefe> thank you [12:25] <@jokeefe> mildbeard, would you be able to work with JoeG to do a how to video on setting up and using i2p? [12:25] <@mildbeard> yes [12:26] <@jokeefe> thank you, could be a very important video [12:26] <@mildbeard> yep [12:26] <@mildbeard> I can show how to do it in Linux and Windows but not mac [12:27] <@jokeefe> I could help with Mac, but Windows is likely the most important [12:28] <@mildbeard> yes [12:32] <@jokeefe> srevilak, the more info on the table, the better. [12:33] <@srevilak> ok [12:34] <@srevilak> did we pick candidate dates for the conference? (my memory needs refreshing) [12:37] <@jokeefe> boston pride parade is 2013-06-08 so ideally 2 weeks after, that. 22/23. could be week before or after [12:39] <@srevilak> thx [12:47] <@jokeefe> I keep meaning to write a statement on the DOJ's contention that drone strikes in the US on us citizens is legal & constitutional. [12:48] <@srevilak> that would be a good statement to write [12:48] <@jokeefe> Anyone else want to write it or object to us having such a statement in oppostion to this stupid idea? [12:49] <@srevilak> no objections, but also no bandwidth for extra writing right now :( [12:55] <@jokeefe> any other comments/objections? [12:56] <@jokeefe> Does this week seem to have more important news than usual? [12:59] <@mildbeard> I think it's an important issue to have an opinion on. [12:59] <@mildbeard> Hey have you guys heard of loomio? [13:00] <@jokeefe> Agreed, on drone strikes. I'll put something together and send it out (tonight hopefully). [13:00] <@jokeefe> loomio looks like it has potential. did you sign us up for a trial? [13:00] <@mildbeard> No, but I would love to do so if it is OK. [13:00] <@jokeefe> fine by me. [13:00] <@mildbeard> great [13:01] <@jokeefe> really thinking we need an LDAP for accounts. On the list. [13:01] <@mildbeard> maybe we can try something similar to what we tried with liquid feedback, on loomio, to see if it works. [13:01] <@jokeefe> Should have the XKCD comic on passwords on all of our create an account pages [13:01] <@jokeefe> sounds good. [13:03] <@mildbeard> lmao good idea [13:03] <@jokeefe> starting to really hate services that limit the number of characters in a password [13:04] <@jokeefe> getting famished, motion to adjourn? [13:07] <@mildbeard> move to adjourn, seconds? [13:07] <@jokeefe> 2nd [13:07] <@jokeefe> all in favor [13:07] <@jokeefe> aye [13:12] <@mildbeard> aye
