(08:14:12 PM) DemonJester: thanks
(08:14:22 PM) inode0: so those are less than 7 minute long talks, but
they do require some preparation to be effective and entertaining
(08:14:28 PM) ***herlo has attended a Pecha Kucha like meeting, it's really fun!
(08:14:59 PM) ***herlo attended http://ignitesaltlake.com/ which is
pretty much pecha kucha
(08:15:35 PM) inode0: ok, are there any other announcements from people?
(08:15:54 PM) ***herlo goes through his notes
(08:16:19 PM) inode0: Most of tonight will be spent on event and
budget planning for Q1
(08:16:21 PM) herlo: I have a question...
(08:16:39 PM) herlo: about non-budget stuffs
(08:16:47 PM) inode0: let's do it
(08:17:13 PM) herlo: and I lost it
(08:17:23 PM) herlo: but I'll keep thinking about it and bring it up
when I remember, sorry
(08:17:28 PM) DemonJester: lol
(08:17:32 PM) inode0: do it during open floor if you find it again :)
(08:17:40 PM) herlo: yep
(08:17:49 PM) inode0: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents
(08:18:01 PM) inode0: Let's look over Q1 events
(08:18:35 PM) inode0: It is my understanding that all events through
FOSE are taken care of already so we need to consider the ones after
FOSE on the list
(08:19:03 PM) herlo: taken care of how, monetarily?
(08:19:09 PM) inode0: For event owners of those who are here how can we help?
(08:19:34 PM) inode0: herlo: funded and/or full of swag or whatever
they asked for
(08:19:45 PM) herlo: oh, nice
(08:19:57 PM) DemonJester: any status on case badges?
(08:20:21 PM) herlo: DemonJester: they're in the budget
(08:20:30 PM) herlo: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/NA/Budget
(08:20:35 PM) inode0: not that I am aware of, buttons were shipped to
regional ambassadors this morning though
(08:21:02 PM) inode0: case badges were in the emergency last minute Q4
discussions, did those fall through?
(08:21:13 PM) DemonJester: apparently so :(
(08:21:22 PM) herlo: inode0: yes, because the sticker company we were
going to go through doesn't really do case badges
(08:21:28 PM) herlo: so we need to find someone who does...
(08:21:31 PM) inode0: ok, no problem
(08:21:47 PM) inode0: so we'll get those in this quarter from somewhere else
(08:21:53 PM) ***DemonJester notes he is fine for his event and
nothing is needed
(08:22:02 PM) inode0: thanks DemonJester
(08:22:36 PM) inode0: we seem to be missing larry, kam, and karlie :(
(08:22:54 PM) herlo: what about ke4qqq
(08:22:58 PM) jsmidt: Yeah, I needed larry here
(08:23:17 PM) herlo:
http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk174/KodiakStar/sell026.jpg <--
maybe one type of case badge
(08:23:20 PM) inode0: DemonJester: can you speak to the barcamp with karlie?
(08:23:25 PM) DemonJester: I will help out Karlie with swag
(08:23:33 PM) DemonJester: inode0: yep
(08:24:09 PM) herlo:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MassachusettsTeam/Projects/AluminiumCaseBadges?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=ubcd.png
<-- ubunut's case badge
(08:24:21 PM) ***herlo is done now...
(08:24:53 PM) inode0: May I suggest we allocate $750 for NFNW as my
best wild guess at this point until we speak with larry?
(08:25:02 PM) inode0: LFNW
(08:25:40 PM) inode0: comments?
(08:26:02 PM) herlo: yeah, that's about right
(08:26:09 PM) DemonJester: agrees
(08:26:09 PM) herlo: you'll have Karsten and Larry there probably
(08:26:30 PM) herlo: inode0: do you want me to make edits tothe budget
now for this stuff?
(08:26:41 PM) inode0: they will get fad money too, we'll talk to larry
and karsten
(08:26:47 PM) herlo: right
(08:26:50 PM) inode0: please go ahead herlo
(08:27:55 PM) inode0: May I also suggest we post to f-a-l something of
a deadline for others to get budget?
(08:28:09 PM) herlo: yes, March 15
(08:28:12 PM) inode0: So we can move on with other needs
(08:28:24 PM) inode0: that was actually the exact date I had in mind :)
(08:29:12 PM) inode0: there is one other conference this month, pycon,
that it would be great to have a presence at
(08:29:28 PM) inode0: perhaps I'll raise that one more time on f-a-l
(08:29:45 PM) ***DemonJester wants to go but cant :(
(08:29:57 PM) ***herlo as well
(08:30:00 PM) inode0: I'm not looking good for it either
(08:30:16 PM) sseiersen: I may go to PyCon
(08:30:31 PM) inode0: which state are you from sseiersen?
(08:30:35 PM) DemonJester: MD
(08:30:39 PM) DemonJester: :)
(08:30:42 PM) sseiersen: Maryland.
(08:30:56 PM) inode0: pycon is far away :)
(08:31:02 PM) sseiersen: aw.
(08:31:09 PM) inode0: Chicago
(08:31:41 PM) laubersm: Chicago isn't that far....
(08:31:45 PM) inode0: let me post something to the list and jump on it
if you are going
(08:31:48 PM) kanarip: that's pretty far indeed inode0 ;-)
(08:32:04 PM) kanarip: (said the Dutchman)
(08:32:18 PM) inode0: well, planes fly all over the place these days
(08:32:21 PM) crossbytes: Iam trying to make plans to go to NFNW but
where is the pycon?
(08:32:36 PM) DemonJester: crossbytes: Chicago
(08:32:45 PM) crossbytes: oh to far..
(08:32:48 PM) ***sseiersen is trying to go to FOSE 2009

(08:33:08 PM) inode0: kanarip: join us for pecha kucha at the summit :)
(08:33:08 PM) herlo: since we're comparing :)
(08:33:18 PM) kanarip: i will
(08:33:38 PM) kanarip: i've submitted two talks that were good enough
for the Red Hat EMEA Partner Summit, so...
(08:33:40 PM) kanarip: we'll see
(08:34:17 PM) inode0: ok, shall we go to other budget items?
(08:34:33 PM) inode0: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/NA/Budget
(08:34:42 PM) inode0: this is very rough
(08:34:57 PM) ***herlo is editing it, so don't you also edit
(08:34:58 PM) herlo: :)
(08:35:13 PM) inode0: media and SCaLE I think we can consider spent
(08:35:20 PM) herlo: inode0: I don't think we need media
(08:35:37 PM) inode0: oh, that changes the picture
(08:35:38 PM) herlo: unless we need it for future events in Q2 that I
know not of
(08:35:55 PM) ***inode0 looks at early Q2
(08:36:09 PM) herlo: but I did the request to all you Regional
Coordinators and it appears we still have over 2k bits o media
(08:36:18 PM) ***sseiersen may be able to provide LiveCDs
(08:36:23 PM) herlo: and that's not counting you
(08:36:30 PM) inode0: wait, F11 will beat Q2 won't it?
(08:36:32 PM) herlo: sseiersen: how?  We have pressed media if you want it...
(08:36:37 PM) herlo: inode0: yep
(08:36:52 PM) inode0: why is inode0 looking at Q2 again?
(08:36:55 PM) ***herlo points sseiersen to

(08:36:59 PM) herlo: lol
(08:37:07 PM) herlo: at inode0
(08:37:28 PM) DemonJester: sseiersen: your kit was sent out this
morning with a bunch of media in it.
(08:37:36 PM) sseiersen: Ty
(08:37:46 PM) herlo: sweet! glad you already are getting one :)
(08:38:16 PM) inode0: ok, we do have two event boxes now and it is a
high priority for me to get the new one into service by the end of Q1
(08:38:20 PM) ***herlo would like to raise the budget to $1k for persisten infra
(08:38:40 PM) herlo: +1?
(08:38:45 PM) DemonJester: where is the second box at?
(08:38:47 PM) herlo: I need a couple...
(08:39:00 PM) inode0: DemonJester: sitting on my kitchen floor
(08:39:02 PM) herlo: DemonJester: we should get you one too...
(08:39:26 PM) herlo: inode0: so you need to get an EventBox too :)
(08:39:30 PM) herlo: er DemonJester ^^
(08:39:41 PM) inode0: what?

(08:39:47 PM) inode0: yes
(08:39:50 PM) herlo: inode0: what do you think you need
(08:40:02 PM) inode0: banners, signage, etc.
(08:40:02 PM) DemonJester: banners / posters
(08:40:17 PM) herlo:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/EventBox#Suggested_contents_of_the_Event_Box
(08:40:30 PM) ***herlo wishes people wouldn't ask for posters
(08:41:02 PM) DemonJester: signs better? ;-)
(08:41:32 PM) herlo: here's what you're gonna get
http://www.bannerstandstogo.com/index.php?action=item&id=1&prevaction=category&previd=1&prevstart=0
(08:41:43 PM) herlo: or something similar, probably a bit more sturdy
(08:42:19 PM) herlo: this is better:
http://www.camelbackdisplays.com/Media-Screen.htm
(08:42:45 PM) herlo: in fact, I just finished the art tonight, cmyk'd
it and everything
(08:42:56 PM) ***DemonJester was just going to get his wife to hold
them up all day :)
(08:43:13 PM) herlo:
http://herlo.fedorapeople.org/art/fedora_four_fs_vertical_banner_sm.png
(08:43:54 PM) DemonJester: cloth or vinyl?
(08:43:58 PM) herlo: http://www.camelbackdisplays.com/Banner-Stands-Banners.htm
(08:44:07 PM) herlo: DemonJester: probably cloth, way more versatile
(08:44:16 PM) herlo: but not sure how they all come, just starting to
dig into it
(08:44:38 PM) inode0: honestly I am ok with bumping the infrastructure
by more if it is needed, these items will last for years and serve us
many times over
(08:44:55 PM) ***sseiersen thinks of a Fedora flag for events.
(08:45:31 PM) ***jsmidt thinks everyone should where fedora flag lapel pins. :)
(08:45:44 PM) herlo: I'd also like to get
http://www.camelbackdisplays.com/Signature-Table-Top-Literature-Racks.htm
(08:45:46 PM) inode0: isn't the polo enough? :)
(08:45:53 PM) ***sseiersen wants one. ;)
(08:46:13 PM) herlo: but for the media (more permanent solution than
the media_box)
(08:47:19 PM) ***inode0 suggests letting herlo run with outfitting
event boxes (he a has proven track record and is already running like
mad anyway)
(08:47:26 PM) herlo: as for stuff we can put on the booth, we'll have
plenty of xo's and media
(08:47:35 PM) herlo: s/booth/booth table/
(08:47:47 PM) herlo: inode0: lol, tx
(08:47:54 PM) herlo: so can I get some +1s ??
(08:48:03 PM) DemonJester: +1
(08:48:12 PM) crossbytes: +1
(08:48:20 PM) inode0: herlo: how many are we going to do? get a third?
(08:48:26 PM) sseiersen: +1
(08:48:30 PM) laubersm: +1
(08:48:30 PM) sseiersen: :)
(08:48:59 PM) herlo: inode0: I'll outfit your box and try to fill most
of DemonJester's box (provided he wants one)
(08:49:03 PM) herlo: thanks gang
(08:49:28 PM) herlo: as well as purchase a new banner stand for the
West Event Box
(08:49:32 PM) ***inode0 thinks add 1200 of the media to infra and see
if that works
(08:49:43 PM) herlo: inode0: so total 1800?
(08:49:46 PM) inode0: yes
(08:49:56 PM) DemonJester: I wouldn't mind getting one
(08:50:32 PM) inode0: you don't have to spend it all but it allows you
freedom to get nice stuff
(08:50:33 PM) herlo: DemonJester: k, I'll see about ordering you one
and having max reimburse me this week.
(08:50:43 PM) DemonJester: roger!
(08:50:48 PM) herlo: inode0: oh, I'll spend it all alright! :)
(08:50:58 PM) inode0: herlo: max just bought mine and had it shipped to me
(08:51:05 PM) herlo: inode0: right, okay
(08:51:24 PM) herlo: I'll be giving him a bill of lading (essentially)
which says, buy this crap and ship it here :)
(08:51:38 PM) herlo: here being where we want it to go...
(08:52:01 PM) laubersm: I assume the budget has money to move these
boxes to/from events so they don't just sit on inode0's kitchen floor?
(08:52:11 PM) inode0: yes
(08:52:18 PM) laubersm: cool.
(08:52:18 PM) herlo: we're at $6550 now
(08:52:45 PM) inode0: DemonJester: can you help with getting the
badges and tattoos ordered?
(08:52:48 PM) herlo: laubersm: the budget has two shipping items, one
for general shipping (eventboxes, ambassadorkits, etc) and one for
OLPC shipments
(08:53:07 PM) inode0: those we should get a stock of as soon as
possible for use in ambassador kits as well as events
(08:53:14 PM) ***herlo points out that we have ~$8000 this quarter
(08:53:22 PM) DemonJester: badges probably, tattoos I will have to
research where to get them
(08:53:30 PM) inode0: DemonJester: not trying to dump those on you,
but you have some contacts, just asking
(08:53:35 PM) herlo: DemonJester: yeah, I'll help ya...so will kanarip
(08:53:37 PM) herlo: er ke4qqq
(08:53:45 PM) kanarip: huh?
(08:53:45 PM) inode0: ke4qqq had a tattoo place picked out
(08:53:46 PM) kanarip: what?
(08:53:47 PM) herlo: stupid tab complete :)
(08:53:50 PM) herlo: kanarip: sorry
(08:54:05 PM) kanarip: herlo, you woke me up in the middle of the night! ;-)
(08:54:06 PM) DemonJester: I will get the info from him.
(08:54:16 PM) inode0: we need to get better badges than the ones kanarip got :)
(08:54:16 PM) herlo: kanarip: if that's so, you should turn your audio off
(08:54:20 PM) herlo: :0D
(08:54:27 PM) DemonJester: inode0: you can task me with that.
(08:54:44 PM) herlo: +1 to DemonJester getting case badges and tattoos fulfilled
(08:55:01 PM) DemonJester: how we looking on shirts?
(08:55:07 PM) inode0: I have lots
(08:55:10 PM) herlo: we need some probably soon
(08:55:13 PM) herlo: for kids
(08:55:29 PM) herlo: youth sizes would be great, not a ton, but maybe 100-200
(08:55:38 PM) herlo: how many t-shirts did we get last time?
(08:55:42 PM) inode0: 300
(08:55:55 PM) ***sseiersen has question about polo distribution
(08:55:58 PM) herlo: also, I'd like to request that we get the
speckled gray shirts, shows less spillage
(08:56:09 PM) laubersm: lol
(08:56:15 PM) ***DemonJester suggest not being a sloppy eater :)
(08:56:30 PM) herlo: DemonJester: you know better than that, have you
met jds2001 ?? :)
(08:56:37 PM) DemonJester: ROFL
(08:56:41 PM) inode0: sseiersen: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/NA
(08:56:51 PM) herlo: he's the messiest eater I've met...over 8
(08:57:27 PM) ***sseiersen wonders how much
(08:57:29 PM) herlo: but we love the guy, he's just awesome!
(08:57:36 PM) herlo: sseiersen: approx $42US
(08:57:44 PM) herlo: incl shipping and all
(08:57:44 PM) inode0: question, do we need to go 300 again? I can't
recall how big that discount was?
(08:57:46 PM) DemonJester: We can go with something other than white if we want.
(08:58:06 PM) DemonJester: I think the discount was at 175 or so
(08:58:10 PM) herlo: DemonJester: I've gotten requests for black, but
we'll need to get approval to do a white splash behind the logo...
(08:58:17 PM) ***sseiersen suggests black shirts
(08:58:28 PM) herlo: :)
(08:58:30 PM) sseiersen: Less spots
(08:58:30 PM) herlo: see
(08:58:32 PM) DemonJester: I would like black as well
(08:58:41 PM) ***laubersm has too many black t-shirts and doesn't look
good in them anyways
(08:58:47 PM) herlo: sseiersen: unless you have dandruff or go into a
room with black lights :)
(08:59:00 PM) sseiersen: :)
(08:59:04 PM) ***laubersm wants blue
(08:59:05 PM) herlo: or both
(08:59:06 PM) DemonJester: herlo: you watch to many AXE commercials
(08:59:12 PM) herlo: DemonJester: lol
(08:59:20 PM) ***herlo doesn't watch TV with commercials
(08:59:33 PM) sseiersen: ^lies.
(08:59:41 PM) inode0: ok, let's try to refocus :)
(08:59:55 PM) herlo: are we good on the moneys for tshirts, tattoos
and badges then?
(09:00:01 PM) inode0: we need a number for the shirts
(09:00:02 PM) herlo: sseiersen: no, it's true
(09:00:09 PM) herlo: inode0: $500
(09:00:18 PM) herlo: whatever that'll buy
(09:00:28 PM) inode0: not a good number if there are a large discount
at 288 as I seem to recall
(09:00:38 PM) DemonJester: blue or  black? and sizes?
(09:00:48 PM) inode0: but we can always do whatever that will buy
(09:00:53 PM) herlo: similar range of sizes, do some youth too
(09:01:01 PM) herlo: we need to get approval for black or blue first
(09:01:15 PM) herlo: so I say gray this time and we pursue getting
approval for black/blue shirts
(09:01:26 PM) herlo: s/gray/speckled gray/
(09:01:30 PM) laubersm: grey sounds best for this time
(09:01:31 PM) inode0: let's confirm the discount point too since if it
is large we need more like 1K
(09:01:52 PM) herlo: we have room in the budget, but we do need to
leave some for events...
(09:01:53 PM) DemonJester: I will see what they have color wise and
get the qty price points
(09:01:56 PM) herlo: ad-hoc events
(09:02:11 PM) herlo: +1 DemonJester
(09:02:23 PM) inode0: well, we saw what happened last time we left
some in the budget :)
(09:02:48 PM) herlo: yeah, but we shouldn't leave much, like $500 or
something is all
(09:03:15 PM) inode0: where are we now since I can't seem to refresh
(09:03:22 PM) herlo: same
(09:03:31 PM) ***inode0 doesn't know what same is
(09:03:34 PM) herlo: nothing's changed, unless you want me to up t-shirts to $1k
(09:03:47 PM) ***herlo suggests inode0 use his pgup button :)
(09:04:04 PM) herlo: 19:52 < herlo> we're at $6550 now
(09:04:47 PM) inode0: carry on for a couple minutes while I'm afk
(09:05:19 PM) laubersm: so what were we assigning inode0 while he is afk?
(09:05:24 PM) ***sseiersen is confused
(09:05:44 PM) DemonJester: what about?
(09:05:58 PM) sseiersen: whats the page to the budget
(09:06:02 PM) sseiersen: ?
(09:06:25 PM) DemonJester: the url?
(09:06:37 PM) sseiersen: yes.
(09:06:39 PM) DemonJester: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/NA/Budget
(09:06:58 PM) ***DemonJester will be right back
(09:07:11 PM) herlo: laubersm: I'm assigning him all my tasks :)
(09:07:16 PM) laubersm: sseiersen, channel topic has link to agenda.
agenda has links to everything else.
(09:07:24 PM) herlo: :)
(09:08:16 PM) DemonJester: herlo: add mine too! :)
(09:08:42 PM) ***laubersm wonders how long this meeting is scheduled
to go on (and on and on)
(09:08:53 PM) ***laubersm yawns
(09:08:56 PM) sseiersen: 4 hours
(09:08:59 PM) sseiersen: :)
(09:09:05 PM) herlo: DemonJester: you do it :)
(09:09:09 PM) DemonJester: lol
(09:09:13 PM) herlo: laubersm: I think we're done pretty much
(09:09:27 PM) ***herlo wishes inode0 would do my tasks already
(09:10:16 PM) inode0: ok, I have one more budget thing to throw into
the pot for consideration
(09:10:24 PM) herlo: and he's back!
(09:11:06 PM) inode0: there is a large FAD scheduled for Boston for
F12 ... I wonder if we should consider helping some ambassadors attend
it
(09:11:54 PM) herlo: when is it?
(09:12:04 PM) DemonJester: June?
(09:12:18 PM) sseiersen: date?
(09:12:22 PM) laubersm: I would like to go.  It will depend on work.
(09:12:35 PM) sseiersen: I'd be interested.
(09:12:36 PM) inode0: June but we could prepay some travel I think if
we wanted to do that
(09:12:37 PM) laubersm: But I should have a place to stay
(09:12:39 PM) ***herlo will probably sit this one out and go to FUDCon
next year...
(09:12:44 PM) sseiersen: Depends on graduation.
(09:13:12 PM) inode0: let's just think about whether it is a good use
of our funds, lots of ambassadors would want to go I'm sure
(09:13:25 PM) sseiersen: hmm
(09:13:42 PM) sseiersen: 10% sponsor of travel funds?
(09:14:19 PM) inode0: I don't really want to think about details -
more should we set aside X dollars to help
(09:14:50 PM) herlo: +1 depending on X
(09:14:58 PM) DemonJester: agrees
(09:15:00 PM) herlo: but something like $1k could help...
(09:15:04 PM) inode0: I think it is very valuable to attend personally
and even if we only helped two or three people go I think it is a good
use of funds
(09:15:05 PM) sseiersen: +1
(09:15:51 PM) inode0: since it is a Q2 event perhaps we could swing
some travel in Q1 and maybe some accommodations from Q2
(09:16:04 PM) herlo: yeah maybe
(09:16:14 PM) DemonJester: what are we being allocated Q2?
(09:16:28 PM) inode0: we won't know until Q2 but likely about the same
(09:17:13 PM) inode0: or more generally let me suggest this
(09:17:48 PM) inode0: we consider setting aside ambassador travel
money as a line item rather than confound it with events?!
(09:18:55 PM) inode0: then if a need arose to get someone to, say,
pycon (although I'm not thinking of that as more than an example) we
could do it
(09:19:14 PM) herlo: hmm, let's stew on that until next meeting ey?
(09:19:23 PM) DemonJester: +1
(09:19:24 PM) inode0: yes, think about it some
(09:19:43 PM) inode0: let's stew on the rest of the budget until next meeting
(09:19:50 PM) herlo: k, it's updated bw
(09:19:52 PM) herlo: btw
(09:20:07 PM) inode0: we need to hit a few people up about events, and
get numbers for swag
(09:20:19 PM) herlo: yup
(09:20:52 PM) DemonJester: I will touch base with Karlie about her events
(09:21:01 PM) inode0: Shall we move then to Open Floor and get this
wrapped before laubersm gets too cranky :)
(09:21:19 PM) laubersm: not cranky :)  just zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
(09:21:43 PM) laubersm: Its is dark out - must be bed time
(09:21:51 PM) inode0: herlo: did you remember your monumental announcement?
(09:22:01 PM) jsmidt: Well, I needed Larry here, but I was thinking of
proposing LUCI be a FAD
(09:22:10 PM) jsmidt: But I will discuss this later
(09:22:22 PM) jsmidt: Since Larry isn't around
(09:22:38 PM) inode0: jsmidt: that is great, for the record FADs
aren't funded by us though, Max takes care of those directly
(09:22:50 PM) jsmidt: Okay thanks
(09:23:21 PM) inode0: important to let him know though if you decide
to go that route
(09:23:27 PM) herlo: inode0: it wasn't monumental
(09:24:49 PM) inode0: yeah, I was just playfully rubbing it in a
little - old folks like to see youngsters forget things too ... makes
us feel better about our infirmities
(09:25:12 PM) herlo: lol
(09:25:17 PM) ***herlo isn't *that* young
(09:25:31 PM) herlo: but I guess since you are as lod as dirt :)
(09:25:36 PM) inode0: any other open floor items?
(09:25:53 PM) DemonJester: none here
(09:26:05 PM) ***herlo is done
(09:26:06 PM) sseiersen: oh
(09:26:12 PM) sseiersen: idk
(09:26:24 PM) inode0: ok, let's try to be prepared to nail the budget
down pretty solid next meeting
(09:26:30 PM) sseiersen: live usb kits?
(09:26:32 PM) crossbytes: want to attend IRC class not sure of time on
west coast
(09:26:43 PM) herlo:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate/IRC/Classroom <--
crossbytes
(09:26:51 PM) herlo: click the link on the left of the table
(09:26:57 PM) herlo: and find your city
(09:27:13 PM) jsmidt: 11:30 in LA
(09:27:15 PM) herlo: sseiersen: that's a constant request, and we'd
like to do something about that
(09:27:18 PM) jsmidt: am
(09:27:39 PM) herlo: sseiersen: thing is, cost prohibitive unless we
do *massive* amounts.  But it is possible
(09:27:46 PM) crossbytes: ok thnk u
(09:27:50 PM) herlo: :) nw
(09:27:50 PM) inode0: sseiersen: you mean branded usb sticks for
ambassador kits or something else?
(09:27:56 PM) sseiersen: yes
(09:27:59 PM) herlo: btw, Classroom is really filling up, only one slot left...
(09:28:13 PM) sseiersen: oh noes
(09:28:21 PM) inode0: for small events here is what you should do
(09:28:48 PM) inode0: if you are advertising be sure to offer to make
live usbs for anyone bringing their own
(09:29:34 PM) sseiersen: where do i sign up for the IRc class?
(09:29:48 PM) inode0: and for everyone wanted branded ones you should
keep an eye on opportunities for producing them
(09:29:50 PM) laubersm: sseiersen, you just show up if you are attending
(09:29:55 PM) herlo: sseiersen: just visit #fedora-classroom
(09:30:01 PM) herlo: sseiersen: read the link
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate/IRC/Classroom
(09:30:08 PM) herlo: it tells you what you need to know :)
(09:30:09 PM) inode0: don't worry about seats filling up :)
(09:30:14 PM) laubersm: sseiersen, herlo was referring to time slots
available for teaching
(09:30:20 PM) herlo: oh, right, sorry about that
(09:30:25 PM) laubersm: sseiersen, Did you want to teach something?
(09:30:28 PM) sseiersen: :)
(09:30:35 PM) sseiersen: no
