Committee Reports


There was another write in. NH is behind but other people seem to be doing quite well.


The ASA failed less badly this week; they came to see the library around 6:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon, while people were here.


Stuff happened.

ESP: ``Can somebody bring us paper towels?'' ``No!'' (Skinner rushes out to give them paper towels.)


Person with acronyms EPA (non-keyholder) will be helping Jade


Google has started talking to us again regarding the issue of getting the library scanned.


Banker's boxes, a red stamp pad and staples have been ordered for the Library's use.


It's going well; we're hopeful.

The refrigerator theory of antigravity is discussed. It's the coolest theory ever.


Old Business

Usual motion. Usual second. Usual vote. Usual result.


New Business

The new movie (two part miniseries) of The Colour of Magic is apparently awesome. Also, Hogsfather is apparently quite good.

Discussion of punnish things ensues. ``You don't say punnish, you say punny.'' Arrrgh.

Splash is tomorrow.

We're thinking of moving the MITSFS-SGS meetings and gameplay night to after Inventory.

The next book in the Codex Alera is coming out in four days.

MobComm is in Tennessee. ``What's in Tennessee?'' ``Trees, fog.'' ``Good reasons to leave.'' ``For a while last summer, lots of Shepherds and Marises.'' ``Mountains.'' ``Mountains? I dispute.''


Future Business

In the future, there will be Thanksgiving. There will also be Stratton House pictures.

More discussion of copyright and Google and cookies ensues. The cookie embargo of Amol begins.

Possible Miller motion, possibly containing the word banana passes 20-6-9 plus Spehn.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Susan Shephard, Onseck
