01:26:28 * sseiersen recalls the event box is on it's way...

01:27:06 <lcafiero> here's a list of folks going: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ohio_Linux_Fest_2009
01:27:10 <VileGent> sseiersen,  I have the event box
01:27:36 <sseiersen> Ok.
01:27:55 <sseiersen> dramsey, I see you got a lot of Distributions coming up.
01:28:02 <sseiersen> How are those?
01:29:35 <dramsey> Yup.
01:29:42 <dramsey> My Sundays time.
01:29:49 <dramsey> s/days/day
01:30:05 <dramsey> Things start on 13th.
01:30:17 <dramsey> Will post to you all how this goes.
01:30:43 * sseiersen looks around...
01:30:43 <sseiersen> Moving on, UTOSC is up next.
01:30:44 <sseiersen> herlo, would you care to add something on it?
01:30:47 <lcafiero> I will in herlo's place, if the senator from Utah will yield.
01:31:14 <herlo> thank you lcafiero
01:31:26 * sseiersen will be coming to UTOSC as well as paying for smeyer to come.
01:31:36 <lcafiero> http://2009.utosc.com/pages/home/
01:31:54 <sseiersen> herlo, all set at your place?
01:32:20 <herlo> yes
01:32:25 <herlo> you, ianweller and lcafiero
01:32:31 <herlo> are all welcome to sleep at my house
01:32:39 <sseiersen> how's about one more :P
01:32:59 <lcafiero> UTOSC is 8-10 October. We will have a table there, which needs staffing.
01:33:12 <herlo> yes!
01:33:13 <lcafiero> We should have a FAD there
01:33:17 * sseiersen will be staffing
01:33:23 <sseiersen> FAD FTW!
01:33:25 <lcafiero> As will I.
01:33:38 <sseiersen> We got to figure out something about that though.
01:33:40 <lcafiero> there has been some discussion about what the FAD should be.
01:33:56 <sseiersen> Let's get to that later.
01:33:57 <lcafiero> and herlo had a great idea -- so great it escapes me at the moment
01:34:02 <lcafiero> (whew)
01:34:17 <lcafiero> I still need to make a wiki page for the event, which I'll do this evening.
01:34:27 <herlo> fedora-event-splash
01:34:36 <lcafiero> ^^^ yeah that
01:34:47 <sseiersen> I'm going to skip over the events without a owner.
01:34:59 <lcafiero> want more on UTOSC?
01:35:00 <sseiersen> But if you can do try to take them up.
01:35:27 <sseiersen> lcafiero, take the floor for about 5 mins or so.
01:35:42 <lcafiero> Only 5 minutes? :-(
01:35:48 <sseiersen> :P
01:35:58 <sseiersen> I think UTOSC is rather done.
01:36:09 <sseiersen> Don't want to get off track too much
01:36:10 <lcafiero> Okay, if I can ask herlo -- who's presenting from Fedora this year?
01:36:15 <herlo> you! :)
01:36:19 <herlo> okay, not really
01:36:27 <herlo> Paul is presenting and Ian is doing two
01:37:02 <lcafiero> I may be, in quaid's place.
01:37:20 <herlo> well, there's the fedora BoF too
01:37:51 * sseiersen is about to move on...
01:37:58 <lcafiero> right. -- herlo, is it okay if I give quaid's talk?
01:38:15 <lcafiero> Right, I think that's all we have to report on it.
01:38:29 <lcafiero> I can do shadow puppets to take up the rest of the five minutes . . . .
01:38:48 <sseiersen> #topic Budget review- https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/NA/Budget#Q3_2010_Budget_.28September_2009_-_November_2009.29 | FAmNA meeting
01:38:50 <herlo> lcafiero: it was removed
01:39:02 <herlo> so we didn't approve it, but we can talk afterward, there might be something there
01:39:06 <lcafiero> Ah.
01:39:22 <herlo> sorry, I'm in two meetings right now too, in fact.  We're selecting presentations now...
01:39:29 <lcafiero> Okay, we'll talk later, herlo
01:39:31 <sseiersen> $785 on tattoos and $500 on New Mexico Linux Fest.
01:39:49 <sseiersen> Total expenses: $1,285
01:39:56 * VileGent in other meeting as well (finalizing installfest this weekend)
01:40:17 * ianweller rolls in
01:40:27 <sseiersen> welcome ianweller
01:41:06 <sseiersen> From what I see the budget is a bit solid, but may get bit a worse as we go along.
01:41:24 <sseiersen> We still got to factor in other events and such.
01:41:58 <lcafiero> Right. I am going to make a request for SCaLE in Q4 2010 (December to February)
01:42:07 <lcafiero> But I'll take that up at the proper time
01:42:18 <sseiersen> Ok, wonderful.
01:42:28 <sseiersen> herlo: how much for UTOSC?
01:42:28 <dramsey> Truly, wonderful.  :)
01:42:36 <herlo> sseiersen: for you, free
01:42:44 <herlo> if you volunteer, lcafiero has a coupon code
01:42:47 <smeyer> What about HOPE?
01:43:03 <sseiersen> ?
01:43:03 <herlo> for UTOSC it's $35 for three days with the promo code FDRA
01:43:21 <sseiersen> How much do we need from the budget :P
01:43:23 <sseiersen> ?
01:44:29 <sseiersen> Do te do te do...
01:44:37 <smeyer> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.O.P.E. Not the best coverage of it, basically a hardware/software hacker conference
01:45:09 <smeyer> They had Kevin Mitnick, and Adam Savage (mythbusters) last years
01:45:32 <smeyer> Steve Rambam, and Jello Biafra
01:45:42 <sseiersen> #topic Task list- https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/NA/Tasks | FAmNA meeting
01:46:03 <sseiersen> smeyer, that will be discussed later.
01:46:12 <sseiersen> So far not much tasks.
01:46:13 <lcafiero> smeyer: interesting. but it looks like the next one won't be until 2010.
01:46:25 <smeyer> no problem, but the point is to schedule ahead  :)
01:46:31 <sseiersen> Got an Event box for Canada task...
01:46:43 <lcafiero> herlo and I will talk about budget for UTOSC.
01:46:47 <sseiersen> And two contacts.
