Committee Reports


We have a new prentice. His name is Jesse; some of you may know him.

We should keep in mind the structural integrity of the floor.


KR still hasn't heard back from Those People in Utah.

We're pretty sure the Tech staffers are no worse than rats. They're highly unlikely to have twinkie incisors.


We should give books to Splash's book exchange. That'd give them enough escape velocity.


I refuse to believe that Hand of Fate is worse than Barn of the Blood Llama.


We finally heard back from the Gifts Office re: the letters KKB sent last September.

Katie took care of the one box of Panthercomm. I'm not done with my report!


How's that Twilight Zine going? Real Soon Now.



Old Business


New Business

F&SF, Analog, Asimov's are dying. Film at 11. It would be nice if they didn't suck.

Monsters vs. Aliens. Looks fantastic.

KKB has developed an interactive hypertext non-hypertext story.

Don't buy an XO. Don't be a chump.


Future Business

In the future, there will be Thanksgiving! Food will be forthcoming. The Library, in addition to W20, will be closed from 11PM on Wednesday to 8AM on Friday.

In the future, Kate will be working in the area.

They're serving fries out of a food truck! Sun Microsystems is doing more business than that, and they're dead!

Long discussion about jobs.

Miller Motion! Kate likes Miller Motions (*bounce*)! All in Favor of the Miller Motion! Wheee, the universe ends! The Skinner exists both inside and outside the universe, and is thus unaffected by its existence. At any rate, the meeting is thereby ended!

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Christian Ternus, Onseck
