20:06:28 <rbergeron> jsmith: you had a few things relating to the ticket on interwebz.
20:06:34 <rbergeron> Have you found out anything regarding the lift cost, etc?
20:06:42 <jsmith> No, Carlos hasn't responded
20:07:00 <rbergeron> okay
20:07:01 <jsmith> But there's an ISP literally right around the corner -- I've been meaning to call them and try to see if they have options as well
20:07:09 <jsmith> Might be cheaper/easier that way
20:07:26 <rbergeron> #info jsmith is still waiting on information about lift costs from Carlos.
20:07:30 <rbergeron> What ISP?
20:08:16 <jsmith> Carlos said it was called something like "Desert Internet"
20:08:21 <jsmith> I can't find anything by that name
20:08:21 <rbergeron> hrmmm
20:08:33 <rbergeron> okay
20:08:39 <jsmith> but in doing some looking in our favorite search engine, I found a company called Transcend Broadband
20:08:43 <jsmith> Not sure if it's the same
20:08:55 <rbergeron> #action jsmith is looking into very local / nearby ISPs that may be able to provide better options.
20:08:58 <jsmith> Maybe rrix can run around the corner and check for us?

20:09:17 * rbergeron grins
20:09:28 <rbergeron> jsmith: how is booking tickets going?
20:09:42 <rbergeron> spevack: if you're around - same to you, though I saw your blog post about having Fedora Finance Friday tomorrow.
20:10:33 <jsmith> rbergeron: Hoping to do more of that this afternoon
20:10:42 * jsmith is calling that ISP right now
20:10:45 <rbergeron> fun.
20:11:08 <rbergeron> spevack, jsmith: can you please update the tickets as you book flights for folks, so we have an idea of who's booked and who's not?
20:11:11 * rbergeron knows she is booked. MUHAHA
20:12:03 <jsmith> Will do.
20:12:29 <rbergeron> #action jsmith and spevack to continue booking flights and updating tickets as they are completed
