MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, March 26, 2010

MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Miss Katie Ray, President and Skinner, presiding; Kendra Beckler, Onseck, recording.

Minutes read.


Motion to get the pseudo-Onseck a spellchecker: 11-1-3 plus Spehn


Committee Reports

Star Chamber

We keyed kaduk (BJK) after chasing him down for ``only'' 3 weeks.

Our lapstop was ordered.

Pain of Spacecomm

DAV did something with all but a thousand of something else. There were pretty pictures of magazine covers.

Motion to name the next thing to walk out of the door of the library ``Twilight Zine'' because that's the only way we're going to get one out the door: 10-something, 4, that's what it was-10 plus Spehn

KR: In Microsoftland, version 3.0 is the first one that works! BTS: And version 4.0 is the last one that works?


It will be published much less late than the TZ which had 4 Skinner reports! Coming out Real Soon Now. There are strange rumors of TZ aready having articles!


Old Business

Singing commences. We are regaled with the tale of a french horn.

In the past, there were books, and we read them!

Beginners on the saxophone sound like ducks being strangled.

Move to express inertia (MKR: ``Why?''): Unusual vote, unusual result, unusual declaration of new business.


New Business

Fortune Cookie: ``Book lovers never go to bed alone.'' BTS: *examines book* ``Have I been using this wrong?''

Ian: ``How high up the Amazon chain do you have to be before they'll airdrop books to you on a deserted mountain?''


Future Business

In the future, there will be more books, and we will read them (by symmetry).

In the future, we will not attack HRSFA (on 4/18). Of course not.

And perhaps a banana split for dessert?: 12-0-1 plus Spehn

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Kendra Beckler, Onseck
