(i.e. in 8 days) 23:14 <marcoz> ridiculously busy these last two weeks. (start new job next week) 23:14 <marcoz> yes, next weekend 23:15 <+emmes> alanc: I'll see Egbert tomorrow, he wanted to do that. I'll push him again. 23:17 <+alanc> emmes: thanks, it is still 6 months away, but on the other hand, it's now only 6 months to get everything arranged 23:17 <+emmes> exactly 23:18 <+alanc> marcoz: okay, will hope to see email from you about book sprint soonish - especially reminding me if we needed to have any software locally setup or were just using low tech methods like IRC & text editors 23:18 <marcoz> I actually have a night off tonight; that's on my list. 23:19 <+alanc> so anything I forgot for the agenda that people would like to discuss? 23:19 <marcoz> does anyone else want to email the MLs about the booksprint? 23:22 * alanc listens for volunteers, hears only rain 23:22 <marcoz> *crickets*. ok then. 23:23 <+Bart_Massey> My email situation is so bad I'd never see the responses anyhow 23:23 <+Bart_Massey> Need to get that straightened out 23:24 <marcoz> Bart, can we use your mumble server for the book sprint? I have assumed so, but I should actually officially ask. 23:24 <+Bart_Massey> Of course 23:24 <marcoz> thx. 23:24 <+Bart_Massey> Can set up for any other services you'd like to try also 23:25 <marcoz> I'm thinking a shared screen session for any prompt typing. Do you have a server? 23:25 <+Bart_Massey> I do. Can get it set up. 23:25 <marcoz> thx 23:25 <+Bart_Massey> We could also just use a collaborative editor 23:25 <marcoz> Any good ones? google docs seemed to be the best I saw... 23:25 <+Bart_Massey> That would be fine... 23:26 <+Bart_Massey> We've used gobby a lot 23:26 <marcoz> I was trying to keep as low-tech as possible just to keep it easiest. 23:26 <marcoz> gobby? 23:26 <marcoz> that short for google docs? 23:26 <+Bart_Massey> linux-based collaborative text-editor outside the browser 23:26 * alanc has Solaris, Linux, Mac and even Windows machines at home if I need to install a client 23:26 <+Bart_Massey> think that's the right name 23:27 <marcoz> found it. thx. how come I didn't see that in my google searching over the last couple months? 23:27 <marcoz> gobby never turned up 23:27 <+Bart_Massey> apparently google hates them :-) 23:27 <marcoz> competition. lol 23:28 <+Bart_Massey> it does real-time collaborative editing with colors to keep track of what's going on 23:28 <+Bart_Massey> p2p, so no server 23:28 <+Bart_Massey> pretty nice 23:28 <marcoz> nice 23:29 <marcoz> so we can possibly use that and then use screen to gen the output, then have the output dir on some apache mount (or sshfs) so folks can see the output realtime-ish? 23:30 <+Bart_Massey> i'm not sure what "the output" is? what's the plan here? 23:30 <marcoz> Marcheu's is tex and we're shooting for pdf? 23:30 <+Bart_Massey> I will do all the formatting 23:31 <+Bart_Massey> My plan is to not worry much about the PDF until the end 23:31 <+Bart_Massey> I hope to concentrate on editing / formatting 23:31 <marcheu> that's what lyx is for 23:31 <+Bart_Massey> and let others generate text 23:31 <marcoz> Fri and Sat are cranking on the content and Sun is formatting then? 23:31 <+Bart_Massey> formatting should be nbd, but yes 23:32 <marcoz> agreed, but I don't want to do all content up until the very end and then say "Ok, Bart, it's all on you." 23:32 <+Bart_Massey> I'll keep track of it. it'll be fine 23:32 <+Bart_Massey> i'll have formatted drafts throughout the weekend 23:33 <+Bart_Massey> we'll be doing chapter-at-a-time-ish things anyhow 23:33 <marcoz> ok. 23:34 <marcheu> IME the biggest part is to document yourself and double check facts when you're not sure/your memory is bad 23:34 <marcheu> it's what took me the most time 23:34 <marcheu> writing and formatting are minor compared to that 23:34 <+Bart_Massey> marcheu: makes sense, esp for what you've been doing 23:36 <+Bart_Massey> well, gtg. talk to you soon! 23:36 <+alanc> unless someone else has another topic, I think we're done for today 23:36 <+alanc> if we keep to schedule, at the next meeting we should have an announcement of our new board members 23:37 <+alanc> thanks everyone for coming!
