Committee Reports


Libcomm regrets to announce that he hasn't written much in the way of code, as he's been very sick.


Bluebellcomm covered books! The second book of The Last Chronicles Of Thomas Covenant No Really &c. and The Merchants' War were both covered.

We don't actually have a category for reserve hardcovers, but this will change soon


Discussion of Sword of Truth, and the latest book thereof, ensues.

``It's not like you're saying, `can we get back to the Good Stuff?', because there is no Good Stuff. It's just different flavors of Shitty.''


The Skinner hasn't heard back from the guy who wants to donate 2 kilohardcovers to the Library.

Chamber Report

Haldeman is coming to MITSFS to give a reading on December 14. He will be reading from The Accidental Time Machine! You all should come. Bring your friends and enemies!


Old Business

Thanksgiving happened.



New Business

So, what's new? KCR: ``Who cares?''

KR doesn't want to drag this out any longer than it has to go.

Discussion of OLPC hardware ensues. The OLPC project is in fact making a lot of money.

KR's text adventure game has an expansion out! The dragon's name begins with an X, which is a relevant hint.


Future Business

In the future, there will be cake. And then there will be cake!

Motion that the banana-colored cake is a lie passes 4-3-7+Spehn.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Christian Ternus, Onseck
