MITSFS Meeting Minutes
Friday, August 4, 2006
MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Kevin Riggle, President and Skinner, presiding; Kat Allen, Onseck, recording.
A motion to approve the minutes as not being very informative at all passes 6-1-2+Spehn
A motion to commend Jourcomm for flouting all tradition passes 10-4-1+Spehn
Mad magazine once published a magazine with a cover that was painted by a monkey. We will not be going into Building 66 for it.
``If the Skinner gesticulates wildly, eventually the Onseck will make up the truth.''
``Ooh, Henry Jenkins has a weblog?''-KR
``Everybody's doing it, then?''-KR
``Yup. This is why DOPA is dopey'' -KHA
A motion to commend Congress for being really stupid fails for lack of a second.
KR puts in a plug for his company's new product, Hiveminder.com
KKB says ESG just got rid of a bunch of sci-fi books and she brought them
to us. She left them in the annex.
``They're free, and they're books, and there's a lot of them''
``Three good things!''
``In the future, ALC will have access to the Library''-ALC KR has sent the list, which he will send again today.
A visitor who writes for a German fanzine wants to write about MITSFS and especially the Perry Rhodan books. Apparently we have a very rare poster on our wall in the first aisle.
Disussion of the SNR of the minutes as compared to Discussion of what you call the first 10 years of a decade determines ``oughts'' or ``aughties''
Discussion of why there are so many vampire books (Buffy spinoffs?) and not enough space (Firefly) books comes to no conclusion.
A motion to replace the CAC with a pile of banana-fueled monkeys so they'll change our locks passes 10-i-i+Spehn
BING! Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.
