      take down, and hopefully some of the afternoon.

      Jitsi?
21:14 < Lulu> Yay. Thanks. Jason and I will need a break by the afternoon
21:15 < srevilak> jokeefe: it sounded like we have a table outside,
      underneath a tent
21:15 < Lulu> We plan on bringing AJ, will you bring Liam jokeefe?
21:15 < srevilak> I imagine we'll present what people ask us to present :)
21:15 < srevilak> but Tor, etc. seem like fair game
21:15 < jokeefe> he probably won't be there until after 5pm.
21:16 < jokeefe> thanks, Lulu & srevilak
21:16 < srevilak> Saturday is a high of 66 deg. F with 30% chance
      of drizzle

21:17 < jokeefe> k
21:17 < lisbon> are all the tables under tents?
21:17 < Lulu> I have the skull sweater, I am all set
21:17 < jokeefe> lisbon, interested in holding a cryptoparty in your
      neck of Mass?
21:18 < srevilak> lisbon: I believe all outdoor tables are under tents
21:18 < jokeefe> haven't had one in ludlow area
21:18 < Lulu> yes all tables are under tents
21:18 < lisbon> Im not sure if there would be much interest
21:18 < Lulu> My husband, the Pirate Cat works in Ludlow often!
21:18 < srevilak> lisbon: see https://makerfaire.mit.edu/faq, question
      about rain
21:18 < Lulu> Ludlow? YES!
21:19 < lisbon> I should probably mention this, im 15
21:19 < jokeefe> sometimes we never know til we ask :-)
21:19 < srevilak> lisbon: nothing wrong with starting early :)
21:19 < lisbon> In fact my birthday is on the 4th
21:19 < jokeefe> lisbon
21:20 < jokeefe> happy soon to be birthday, lisbon.  you share it with
      wikileaks
21:21 < Lulu> What a great birthday!
21:21 < jokeefe> anything else about the MIT Maker Faire?
21:21 < lisbon> yes, in fact I am probably happier for wikileaks than
      I am for myself :)
21:22 < lisbon> No, my concerns about the weather were addressed
21:22 < lisbon> carry on
21:22 < Lulu> OK yes
21:22 < Lulu> I will be there for hours before anyone else and...
21:22 < Lulu> All I have is TOR
21:22 < Lulu> Derp?
21:22 < jokeefe> Next up Wikileaks 8th Birthday Party, 10/4. Suggested:
      Celebrate during and after Maker faire
21:23 < srevilak> We have 7 RSVPs for dinner
21:23 < jokeefe> never going to use chat in non-firefox browser
21:23 < lisbon> why not just use a client
21:23 < jokeefe> no scrolling is frustrating
21:23  * srevilak suggests irssi for chat.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irssi
21:24 < jokeefe> normally I would , but haven't had the time to debug
      why they just seem to fail on my network.
21:24 < jokeefe> thanks, srevilak, will try that
21:24 < jokeefe> scrolling working again
21:25 < Lulu> Wait!
21:25 < Lulu> You didn't answer my question!
21:25 < jokeefe> sorry, which one?
21:26 < jokeefe> I will be bringing three more, so if you are counting
      me, that brings us to 10
21:26 < srevilak> I can call asgard tomorrow & make reservation
21:27 < lisbon> what is asgard?
21:28 < jokeefe> it is an irish pub/restaurant in cambridge, lisbon
21:28 < lisbon> k
21:28 < jokeefe> thanks, srevilak, that would be good.  would you send
      the final list you have to the list so anyone can add themselves?
21:30 < srevilak> jokeefe: not sure what you mean.  Sending RSVPs to
      the list seems unreleated to folks rsvp'ing themselves
21:31 < jokeefe> lisbon, have you looked at this maker space in
      Holyoke? http://www.gatewaycityarts.com/
21:31 < jokeefe> or this one
      http://www.meetup.com/TheGeekGroupofWesternMass/
21:32 < lisbon> I have been to the geek group, but I was unaware of one
      in holyoke, thanks
21:32 < Bluelustreak> please get me up to speed... </3
21:33 < jokeefe> srevilak, was just thinking that if you sent the list
      out, then it might jog people to RSVP.
21:34 < srevilak> ah - well, I just sent the RSVP link out
21:34 < jokeefe> ok, whatever you think.
21:35 < srevilak> Looking at agenda, I gather we need to get a cake
21:35 < Bluelustreak> I have no regrets...
21:35 < Bluelustreak> I have enough on my plate
21:35 < srevilak> I could ask Asgard if they could do a small cake
21:36 < jokeefe> I will get the cake since I am arriving late
21:36 < srevilak> thx, jokeefe
21:36 < jokeefe> will order it tomorrow and pick it up on Sat.
21:38 < jokeefe> That is all I have on the agenda.  Going to be pretty
      busy with campaigning in the weeks ahead.  any other items folks want
      to add?
21:38 < jokeefe> lisbon is there any way we could help you out there?
21:38 < lisbon>  what do you mean by 'help'
21:39 < jokeefe> connect you with pirates in your area mostly.
21:40 < lisbon> That would be nice
21:41 < Bluelustreak> Kevin?
21:41 < lisbon> I know a very few people that have like interests
21:41 < Bluelustreak> Kevin in Amherst.
21:41 < jokeefe> There are others in West Springfield.
21:42 < jokeefe> Will see what we can do, lisbon.  Did you sign up for
      our email list?
21:42 < lisbon> I believe I have
21:43 < lisbon> is it same to type an email into this?
21:43 < lisbon> *safe
