Friday, April 1, 2005

MITSFS meeting called to order, 1730 SST, Kat Allen, President and Skinner, presiding; Brian Sniffen, Onseck, recording.

Minutes read and showed--they are in comic book form.

The Onseck is commended for an incredibly accurate reading of last week's minutes, even though he doesn't know it. 12-1-$\pi$ plus Spehn.


Committee Reports


Everything but the art is done. Probably mid-April.


There's a block party next week. 3-5 next Friday, leading right into the meeting.


A box from SFBC arrived with hardcovers.


6 hours until the stupid holiday is over.


Old Business

March Ended. So did winter. Eight years ago, my life was saved by a blizzard.

A police officer in Connecticut has been arrested for flashing passers-by with a plush toy banana 11-2-2 plus Spehn. Connecticut is condemned for decadence.


New Business

Somebody wants a blit out of a French encyclopedia we have. Can somebody help find the right bit?

We've postered a bunch.

Memberships bought now will expire next summer, making this an excellent deal.

More books have been sent to Niagaracomm, and it appears to speed up some Hasslecomm stuff.


Future Business

There's a picnic coming. Also CPW. Cleverly, these don't line up.

This card JFC has reads ``burnup/gm. preparation for the outer ring begins.'' It then contains some FORTRAN.

Yelena will be boxing up some C/Ps to remove triples.

There's an ASA GBM coming up. Maybe we can find out whether they're dropping the re-rooming there. Much discussion of social engineering the ASA.

The GBM is declared bananas. 25 or so-1-4 plus Spehn.

Meeting adjourned, 1800 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Brian Sniffen, Onseck
