14:17:32 <KageSenshi> #topic Announcements
14:17:35 <KageSenshi> ok
14:18:34 <KageSenshi> thheres no real announcement at the moment, but .. heres a little stuff we need to be aware related for this meeting
14:19:12 <KageSenshi> #info from the budget document, we might go overbudget. we probably need to hunt for sponsorship
14:19:39 <rebelk0de> !
14:19:40 <KageSenshi> #info theres a dangerously bad status with the promo team
14:20:15 <rebelk0de> is sponsorship allowed? I thought the only thing allowed was "sponsor in kind"?
14:20:24 <rebelk0de> eof
14:20:42 <KageSenshi> #info its been quite idle, and i dont see any actions done in the mailing list, from the coordinator, neither the team members .. we seriously need to reorganize the promo team
14:20:58 <KageSenshi> theres some designs, but its a blocker design
14:21:02 <KageSenshi> i mean
14:21:14 <KageSenshi> the design is blocking other tasks, due to the coordinator doesnt delegate
14:21:34 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, yes, only in kind .. finding someone to pay for food is in kind
14:21:35 <KageSenshi> :)
14:21:39 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, or pay for all t-shirts
14:21:50 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, or pay for bus
14:21:55 <rebelk0de> noted
14:22:09 <KageSenshi> we simply doesnt take cash
14:22:11 <rebelk0de> the bus part is something i can ask - but cant promise as we've outsourced our buses
14:22:23 <rebelk0de> will ask about the bus tho
14:22:29 <sweemeng> do we even have time for sponsor
14:22:32 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, can i have a dateline ?
14:22:44 <KageSenshi> sweemeng, foss.my was done in 1 month
14:22:55 <sweemeng> ok
14:23:02 <KageSenshi> sweemeng, so .. well .. that implies, if theres a will, theres a way :)
14:23:27 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, can i have a dateline on when i can get this information?
14:24:16 <rebelk0de> as mentioned a few mins before meeting, we have a few questions about the bus
14:24:27 <KageSenshi> #topic questions / decisions
14:24:31 <KageSenshi> #info bus information
14:24:37 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, what are the questions ?
14:24:39 <rebelk0de> 1. where does the bus need to go? LRT - APIIT, APIIT - LRT. Anywhere else?
14:24:58 <MavJS> !
14:25:06 <rebelk0de> how many buses required?
14:25:06 <KageSenshi> APIIT<->LRT and APIIT<->Hotel Sri Petaling
14:25:17 <rebelk0de> so 2 buses?
14:25:45 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, to hotel sri petaling, we only need the bus to pick during start of the day , and drop during end of the day
14:25:59 <rebelk0de> all information on the bus can be provided by thursday / friday based on information collected here :)
14:26:09 <rebelk0de> KageSenshi, noted
14:26:10 <MavJS> X
14:26:19 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, while for the lrt, we can use the same bus if we time it right i think
14:26:22 <KageSenshi> MavJS, yep ?
14:26:33 <MavJS> KageSenshi: request withdrawn ;)
14:26:38 <KageSenshi> MavJS, ok :)
14:26:56 <KageSenshi> ok
14:27:09 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, anymore questions for the bus stuff?
14:27:30 <rebelk0de> hang on
14:27:32 <rebelk0de> checking
14:28:06 <rebelk0de> for Hotel SP - number of ppl requiring transport
14:28:14 <rebelk0de> lrt - number of ppl requiring transport
14:28:19 <rebelk0de> a rough estimate will do
14:28:48 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, for hotel, roughly 14 maybe , depending on how many we can approve
14:29:03 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, for lrt, i want a feeder mode for 2 hours
14:29:23 <rebelk0de> start time? 7.30 am or 8 am?
14:29:32 <KageSenshi> in the morning, and feeder mode for afternoon
14:29:43 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, lets take it 8am-10am
14:29:55 <rebelk0de> ok noted, KageSenshi
14:30:05 <rebelk0de> Will get back with data by latest Friday
14:30:09 <KageSenshi> for afternoon, should be shorter time needed i think
14:30:20 <KageSenshi> as we just pick whoever in apiit who need to be dropped in lrt
14:31:23 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, anymore questions?
14:31:44 <rebelk0de> no, KageSenshi thanks
14:31:48 <KageSenshi> ok
14:32:02 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, talking about bus and transport, theres another information i need
14:32:21 <KageSenshi> #action rebelk0de to get back on bus cost information by friday
14:32:28 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, parking information
14:32:32 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, where to park ?
14:33:03 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, i remembered theres a parking a bit behind of apiit, are there conditions for that place?
14:33:07 <rebelk0de> Good point, KageSenshi
14:33:28 <rebelk0de> Will have to check - pls ad to #action
14:33:32 <MavJS> !
14:33:52 <KageSenshi> #action rebelk0de to check on parking information
14:33:55 <KageSenshi> MavJS, yep ?
14:33:56 <rebelk0de> Saturday and Sundays aren't a problem, i need to make arrangements for Friday
14:34:17 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, just a quick email to me should be enough,
14:34:33 <MavJS> KageSenshi: the parking behind apiit, after the road is around RM5 a day, iirc.
14:34:57 <KageSenshi> MavJS, which is fine for me .. i just need its operating hours/availability
14:35:16 <TYSSeries> !
14:35:17 <KageSenshi> MavJS, they coming to a free event, rm5 is a small tradeoff imo :P
14:35:20 <KageSenshi> TYSSeries, yep ?
14:35:26 <MavJS> KageSenshi: right. eof :)
14:35:43 <rebelk0de> noted, KageSenshi
14:35:57 <TYSSeries> There is a new parking lot that also costs RM5 and the time availability is from 7am till 10pm, that's I experienced
14:36:15 <TYSSeries> So parking lot slots are sufficient and time availability is okay
14:36:16 <KageSenshi> TYSSeries, cool
14:36:32 <KageSenshi> hurm .. maybe we'll need a ground plan for tpm to point ppl to parking areas
14:36:33 <rebelk0de> MavJS, will ask management if we can use our parking near astro + request van from that parking to the main building
14:36:33 <KageSenshi> :P
14:37:00 <MavJS> rebelk0de: ok. that's cool as well. :)
14:37:29 <KageSenshi> we'll just list out all options i guess, and let the attendees decide where to park
14:37:35 <MavJS> +1
14:37:44 <KageSenshi> i myself prefer to pay rm5 than to park all the way at astro
14:37:46 <KageSenshi> XD
14:37:53 <MavJS> +1 to that as well :p
14:37:58 <rebelk0de> KageSenshi, haha ok
14:38:21 <KageSenshi> though parking at astro theres an advantage
14:38:26 <KageSenshi> your attendees cant run away :P

14:54:07 <KageSenshi> next item ..
14:54:13 <KageSenshi> #topic new action items
14:54:14 <KageSenshi> erm ..
14:54:17 <KageSenshi> lets see
14:54:38 <KageSenshi> i need someone to take over baton from jipang menjerit
14:55:31 <KageSenshi> i can understand he's busy, but his action hogging the tasks and not passing it around is very dangerous
14:55:45 <MavJS> KageSenshi: since we're going to wait for reply from jipang till friday night. we could ask some other vlnt on tuesday for this?
14:56:03 <KageSenshi> at least he need to delegate so that i know theres someone else i can ask when i need somehting
14:56:26 <KageSenshi> but while i have been reminding him several times about it, he still hogging the tasks ..
14:56:49 <KageSenshi> promo team is idle, and as we are already less than 2 months before the event, this is getting dangerous
14:57:14 <KageSenshi> MavJS, can you find someone who can coordinate?
14:57:37 <MavJS> KageSenshi: i'd have take it myself, if i didn't have assignment submission on 9th april :|
14:57:44 <MavJS> KageSenshi: ok. i'll find.
14:58:02 <KageSenshi> MavJS, you can take it, but do not hog tasks
14:58:23 <KageSenshi> MavJS, having the core team burnt down due to tasks not delegated is quite dangerous
14:58:58 <MavJS> KageSenshi: btw, i think we may need to delegate some more people in promo as some are "dead"?
14:59:13 <KageSenshi> MavJS, get someone to ping whether they are still alive first
14:59:24 <sweemeng> they might just in "coma"
14:59:37 <KageSenshi> #action MavJS to find someone who can take over coordinator role for promo team
14:59:37 <MavJS> KageSenshi: ok. cool. I'll ping every promo member after the meeting.
14:59:50 <KageSenshi> MavJS, i think they simply idle because their coordinator doesnt move them
14:59:56 <MavJS> KageSenshi: ok. noted.
15:00:06 <KageSenshi> MavJS, malaysia is not really a culture where ppl step forward to do stuff
15:00:14 <MavJS> KageSenshi: so is Burma ;)
15:00:17 <KageSenshi> they volunteer, but they wait for tasks
15:00:34 <KageSenshi> if no tasks, instead of finding/suggesting something to do .. they idle
15:00:42 * MavJS agrees...
15:01:20 <rebelk0de> Sorry chaps, wish i could help, but am packed with tasks already
15:01:36 <KageSenshi> rebelk0de, no prob, i dont want you hogging tasks too

15:01:43 <MavJS> lol! :D

15:03:55 <KageSenshi> #info whoever taking the new coordinator role for promo team, will have to be able to take own initiatives
15:04:39 <KageSenshi> #info KageSenshi will only notify rough idea of  things that might need to be done, but the coordinator will need to break it apart and get volunteers to do it
