MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, 21 June, 2002

MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Our beloved Ed, President and Skinner, presiding. Andrew Boardman seems to be the Onseck.

Minutes read.

Move to accept the minutes as transparent passes, 4/0/1+. BING!


Committee Reports

pseudoPlantcomm: the curculation room now has an ADA-compliant handle. The doors with handles instead of knobs are reported to have an added feature: an intellgent pit bull can learn to open them. Why this is relevant to MITSFS remains blissfully unclear.

Mobcomm is uncharacteristically speechless. This is seconded, and does nothing, 4/0/3+. BING!

Eos has provided us with a new review hardcover! A review will, of course, be written. Newly review books: 'Light Music' by Goonan, and an advance proof of 'Across the Nightingale Floor' by Hearn.

Mobcomm goes on at great length. (Some things just don't last.)

Pianocomm reports a new prentice, in the person of Ariel Segall. Yay Ariel.

The interim Onseck is promised bits.

The Skinner is going to go to Tennesee to attempt to get run over by a bus. This has made a lot of people very angry and been generally regarded as a bad idea.


Old Business

A report has surfaced that T. C. Skinner has been enrolled in the International Bananna Club, some number of years ago. Not that they've sent us anything. But they have a web site.

Andrew Boardman has been ratified as Onseck.


New Business

Many new books are about to become non-new books. Come and get 'em!

A new donation: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.


Future Business

The skinner is leaving! (Long live the skinner!)

We got some new members this week!

Jen Chung will be putting books on Ebay!

The pinkdex stuff was dealt with! The libraries should be paying us for it forthwith!

The forthcoming book list has been received from Space-Crime-Continuum. JFC wants to sit down with a star chamber member and think about where our money is going and whether we want it to keep going there.

TZ Real Soon Now.

Miller motion with a bananna on top is irregularly seconded and chickens, 1/3/8+.

Second miller motion with a bannna on top is seconded and passes, 2/1/1+. BING!

Meeting adjourned, 17:47 SST.

Irrespectfully submitted,
Andrew Boardman, pseudoOnseck
