Committee Reports


New TIF by the end of the weekend...


John Scalzi visited last week as part of his Redshirts tour, which is why we didn't have a meeting. He was very awesome and talked and signed our copy of Redshirts.

Downtrodden Membership

There's a thing called the Clarion Write-a-Thon where you write words or something and you can have people sponsor you or something and something and the money goes to Clarion


We had a work party, and got through most of the P backlog. But we have a whole bunch of HAs to hassle, and will need to have another work party in the near future.


We moved more books to the Warehouse.


We got new prentices! Multiple of them!


PW is having more trouble with the electronic checkout system, and may need to reinstall postgres.


We might actually make progress soon: we have a meeting with the Gifts Office.


Old Business

In the past it was even hotter.

In the further past it was even colder.

In the even further past it was even hotter.

In the past, the cycle of the seasons has cycled many times before.

In the past, AW watched all of True Blood, and it was good.

In the past, there was summer. For some people, there still is.

In the past, days were getting longer.



New Business

In the present, the days are getting shorter.

There is not a dinner mob in the present: no eating in the library!

There might be one in the near future?

In the present, the Skinner is tired and hungry.


Future Business

Motion to eat bananas in the future PASSES by Skinnerial apathy.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 68.4 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Lemur Rowlands, Vice and pseudoOnseck
