Committee Reports

Pseudo-VGG[JFC]: A former member paid a fine for a book he lost in 1981.

Dexmistress[JM]: Dexmaster is improving daily.

Tablecomm[Whitfield Diffie]: Table committee is alive and well. Discussion follows about why we don't want to know what this means, but a search of the lore of the MITSFS reveals its meaning.

Pseudo-hasslecomm[JFC]: (Points to the stack of boxes.) Need I say more?

Old Business

Whitfield Diffie, former member and the first half of Diffie-Helman, is here.

[JWH] ``Cool''

New Business

[JM] Locks are still coming. Jenwa talked to omnilock people; the model we want will cost only a few hundred dollars more than the model CAC wants. Locks 2000. Y (Malcolm Skerry) makes a pun about ``bagel 2000'', that is apparently seconded and approved.

Y is revealed to be an ex-vice.

[Y] Is it possible that Battlefield: Earth will be the worst movie of all time?

[JM] It's not a good cult movie like Planet 9 (sic).

Jenwa just graduated.

Future Business

Marcus is coming back and may be a keyholder.

Motion: return to committee reports. Passes 5-2-Spehn.

Jourcomm: Marcus and Y buy TZs! So does Whitfield Diffie!

Bluebellcomm [ED]: Covered a lot of books, to circulate June 31.

Motion: go back to banana section of minutes. Passes 4-0-1+Spehn.

Meeting adjourned 17:30 SST.
