MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, July 19th, 2002

BING! MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Ed Keyes, President and Skinner, presiding; Andrew Boardman, who shows every indication of being the onSeck, recording.

Jade and Jay fled.

Minutes read, with numerous

Jamie moved to approve the minutes as a postmodern interpretation. The motion does nothing 4/2/3+. BING!


Committee Reports

Mobcomm got a box of books from SCC! The mailman was there when MOBcomm was, after which the latter was promptly encumbered with some free vanity-published science fiction.

hBARcomm: The minutes are to read that Jen Clay cures headaches.

Dexmistress: inventory is saturday 3 august. emily says that she is looking forward to it. No, really. JFC is proven to be a lousy barcode scanner.

JFC wants to form a committee to keep track of mad scientists, one of whom has created an artificial polio virus. Another one has created a mosquito which is supposed to not transmit malaria.

NASAcomm reports on N's research into building a beanstalk.

Theftcomm reports a one-year anniversary of the TIF, which has demonstrated that certain keyholders are really being kinda lame.


Old Business

The Working Group should really be doing stuff.

JFC may have a plan to dispense with the bubble in the library, involving noting hyperlinks from one section of books to another. It is generally agreed that doing this for the entire library is a bad idea. Even with doubly linked lists.


New Business
The Usual Stuff??

Psi-phi failed to take Athena 9.1. AMB will find a larger disk.

NYRSF has been renewed; Analog and Asimov's are next.

We got money from the libraries! Yay!

JFC submitted a reimbursement request for a box of books from SCC. He also reports the possibility of dealing directly with Ingram.


Future Business

HyperIntelligentSquirrelComm reports advances in the plan of the squirrels. The use of organic body cream is not advised, as it may make the HIS population take you as one of their own. JFC is unaffected, but for an isolated instance of Sciurusian interaction.

Jamie moves to create the committee Speaker to Sciurus, who will deal with said population and attempt to save the universe from them. ``two-legged groveller''. Motion passes, 8-4-0+. BING!

Meeting adjourned, 1758 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Jamie Morris, pseudo-Onseck
