    I won't be able to make it. The wife works, so it would be me and three young children.

    I'll send JMJ a website report for the meeting.

    Hey guys, last last last minute change in plans...there's going to be a reporter and a photographer at our sewing club meeting today and I don't know when they are going to show up, but the current head seamstress is off at a PT conference which leaves me in charge. We MAY be done in time for the GM, but I can't be sure.

    Stacky - I'll give you a call when we're done if its before four, or you give me a call before you head out (whichever comes first)?

    I'm so sorry to pull this last minute you guys!!!!!

    Ok, podcast is edited. Once I figure out how to submit it to you smeggers, I'll post a link. :D

    Heck, we may be able to get it hosted on iTunes. No promises though.

    This actually serves a double function, now I think about it ... since we didn't have anyone taking notes, it'll serve as the meeting notes for this ... meeting.

    But it was actually a suggestion Kevin (fatpants) had via proxy: we could record our more structured meetings (GM, book club, possibly PCMN) and post them as podcasts for those who missed the meeting or moved away. I liked the idea and sorta ran with it. The one I have now is a trial version, so obviously later episodes will have more effort put in. Maybe. :p But I set up my computer and hit record and when I got home I just adjusted the volumes a little, and here we are!

    I'm working on uploading it to a free hosting site right now.

    If we are going to podcast, we need to find a place away from the nerds. JMJ said it best as we moved to the front of the store, "I hate NERDS!!!" If those tables are going to stay in the front of CQ, maybe we can check with Jim about just sitting up there. The back is fine when we are not recording as nerds bring great moments of laughter (like gay sounding ringtones), but the nerds make recording a chore.

    I agree. It was pretty difficult trying to adjust volume levels when the spikes in soundwave sometimes meant us laughing and sometimes meant those douches being loud with their hideous semi-moustaches.

    You know, since the recording is only for the benefit of members who couldn't make it, podcasting it may be overkill. If someone could host it, a download link is all anyone would need.

    It's basically the same :p

    This way there's just an RSS that makes it easier.

    I know the mechanics behind a podcast, Stacky. :-B

    I'm saying we don't need many of the features like stats, etc.. If there's no cost involved, then it's moot anyway.

    Feb 9th Meeting Minutes
    (Taken from Podcast)
    First try of podcast
    There is an ?expilicit tag? if we need one
    This comment was followed immediately by ?Mike Hunt, you have a call on Line 2?

    Collecting Club Update

    We need dates as they are currently in flux
    The ?08 wave 1 has started to hit the shelves. These are hard to find as the older runs are still on the shelves and moving slowly.

    Yodapimp?s coin album is nearly complete

    The new figures seem to be a mix of ROTS and the animated stuff. They are also in the bubble cards which makes it rough on the collectors to store.

    There was a bit on CNN with Hasbro. Someone had a preproduction copy of the new AT-TE.

    Don?t get Stacky started on ringtones and pyramid schemes.

    Wave 3 will be a cool Clone Wars assortment. The release will be pushed back until fall. Then that will be mostly it until Clone Wars comes out.

    It will be an expensive year

    Costuming Club Update

    Talked about 12? figure clothes.

    No info on a group costume project as yet.

    -the sound is kinda rough here the only comment that really stood out was ?We?re all sick?-

    WebMaster Update

    Capnfatpants has registered the club with several networking sites. This will get our name and word of our events out there. We already have the Myspace for the pervies who think that we?re all 12-year-olds.

    Fatpants and JMJ will be limiting access to the site to themselves. If you have something you want on the site, contact them

    The business cards have been uploaded to flickr
    evansville.com@flickrfeed

    If anyone wants to design or print a few fliers ask fatpants. He can get them at work B & W only please.

    If anyone has pics of events or various reviews of books and such give them to fatpants.

    ?Previously on BattleStar Galactica? brought to you by Quizno?s.

    ?It is bad when you steal a room-mates car payment and use it to pay for a Chinese hooker.?

    A brief muffled discussion about Star Trek, and ?Kesh wearing Spock ears.

    The Indiana Jones trailer will be in the Spiderwick previews.

    The trailer will be a feature at the PCMN

    JMJ get a tattoo for Valetine?s day. She is 95% sure that it will be the Orin or the Naboo seal.

    There is to be no feasting on human flesh during the meeting.

    -At this point I must note that the sound quality is somewhat lacking throughout the entire podcast and you can hear preadolescent gamers and those guys my age that consort with them in the background. There is a great deal of the conversation that is missed.-

    The discussion takes off on another rabbit trail this entertaining jaunt is a discussion about some hideously fat guy buying Playboys. Apparently this fellow has really dry hands-at least he?s not using Jergens.

    Book Club Update
    Fury was the topic of the last discussion.
    The next book will be out in a few weeks

    The new Legacy of the force book written by Karen Travis will be out soon.

    Then follows much muffled conversation about someone being distracted by fangirl?s(?) boobs and then another rabbit trail. (I really wish that I could have made it to the meeting)

    Stacky, where are those pics of JMJ that you promised us?

    The latest Legacy has been released (sound effects of ?keshes geekgasm follow)

    -too much gamer noise-
    The Bug Fracker Trilogy? Pillow fights? Tickling?

    Wrongsville population: us

    Rob Zombie is directing the new Conan Movie (Oh great, more torture porn)
    Boomer is a Cylon?

    -Extended X-files discussion punctuated by ?It?s David Duchovny, I don?t frakkin? care!?

    -Bond, James Bond discussion-

    Free Comic Book Day

    Make a Wish is the Charity this year

    Fatpants is donating a copy of Darth Vader, Dark lord Rising and a poster for the raffle. JMJ thinks it may be signed.

    John Alvin has died. He did the CIV poster.

    We need more stuff for the raffle.

    Each SIG should take the next few months and work on what they would like to put in their respective portions of the booth. These should include some general information about the group.

    The locking cabi

    Thanks for posting this Chuck! That was FAST! - a little clarification on my contributions by proxy though and some comments/questions:

    Ah, the life of geeks...:D I'm glad I'm not in the dating scene anymore!

    Thanks! I'm at work reading this and almost did a spittake with my coke!

    The image is there, not for use as a business card (unless everone wants to), it's there because it makes a cool poster too and shows up occasionally on the front page of It'sEvansville.com.

    Don't know what that is...

    This would be for me to deliver to the library for them to post at all the branches. If you want color copies, I can't help you.
