Dec 12 21:06:09 <kusanagi>        Awesome, welcome everyone
Dec 12 21:06:28 <kusanagi>        We'll start with IT committee's report
Dec 12 21:06:35 <jyaworski>        Joseph Yaworski, MD.
Dec 12 21:07:06 <FrancisKlein>        website is fully functional and all keys are in the hands of bosun - will be sending out the keys to state reps within the next couple of days
Dec 12 21:07:31 <FrancisKlein>        That's all I know - I just messaged him to get himself online
Dec 12 21:07:39 <FrancisKlein>        in more forceful terms
Dec 12 21:07:46 <kusanagi>        I approve :D
Dec 12 21:08:09 <K`Tetch>        keys for what?
Dec 12 21:08:20 <FrancisKlein>        the website
Dec 12 21:08:36 <FrancisKlein>        essentially, will be giving out admin accounts
Dec 12 21:08:46 <K`Tetch>        ok, that makes more sense
Dec 12 21:08:53 <jyaworski>        FrancisKlein: excellent to hear!
Dec 12 21:09:04 <FrancisKlein>        yes indeed
Dec 12 21:09:16 <FrancisKlein>        uspiratesorg is now in the hands of the IT committee once more
Dec 12 21:09:32 <FrancisKlein>        he's coming online now
Dec 12 21:09:34 <K`Tetch>        all we need to do is get pirate-party.us back
Dec 12 21:09:40 <FrancisKlein>        if you want him to talk
Dec 12 21:09:53 *        Bosun (~Bosun@pzed-90-35-978-39.west.biz.rr.com) has joined #pnc
Dec 12 21:09:58 <FrancisKlein>        he might have something additional to add
Dec 12 21:10:07 <FrancisKlein>        perfect timing!
Dec 12 21:10:12 <kusanagi>        Bosun: for the record, identify please
Dec 12 21:10:38 <Bosun>        Joseph Klein Wisconsin/IT
Dec 12 21:11:24 <kusanagi>        Can you give a rundown of what's going on with the site?
Dec 12 21:11:30 <FrancisKlein>        would you care to say anything about the site?
Dec 12 21:11:41 <FrancisKlein>        ^what she said
Dec 12 21:11:58 <K`Tetch>        is it just going to be a 'website', or a full service platform?
Dec 12 21:13:17 <Bosun>        I have Admin rights and access to the DNS records.
Dec 12 21:13:47 <Bosun>        It is on Wordpress ... it needs an updatee
Dec 12 21:13:49 <K`Tetch>        (because I know the ppuk is going to be rolling out a new full-service site in the next month
Dec 12 21:14:22 <jyaworski>        Bosun: I want it in the record that I'll help with the WP back-end and server management.
Dec 12 21:15:37 <kusanagi>        And we may have someone else willing to help, especially with setting up the proper email addresses for the board.
Dec 12 21:16:16 <Bosun>        Not a lot to manage, but help is appreciated. Per my prior statements I would like passwords etc distributed to three trusted people form different states.
Dec 12 21:17:07 <Bosun>        I am happy to authorize people who are willing to help.
Dec 12 21:17:29 <jokeefe>        is there an agenda for the meeting?
Dec 12 21:18:05 <kusanagi>        Agenda is in the topic, https://pnc.piratenpad.de/PNC-2013-12-11
Dec 12 21:21:00 <kusanagi>        Bosun: is there a specific plan for action for the IT committeee?
Dec 12 21:21:06 <jokeefe>        thanks
Dec 12 21:22:26 <K`Tetch>        just wondering if the IT committee is really weded to the wordpress thing, and if the new (and english-lagnguage documented) ppuk site would be a better thing to build from
Dec 12 21:22:48 <Bosun>        I was just concerned with updating things.and some incremental changes. We don't have a real staff so we should not run in front of our headlights
Dec 12 21:23:57 <Bosun>        I use Drupal for WIPP - Wordpress is what we got here.
Dec 12 21:25:08 <Bosun>        We can do anything the volunteer base is willing to work on or can work on.
Dec 12 21:25:31 <K`Tetch>        I can talk to ppuk it,
Dec 12 21:25:33 <Bosun>        But don't suggest unless you can make it work.
Dec 12 21:25:53 <FrancisKlein>        so... a subject that should be brought up at a later IT meeting?
Dec 12 21:26:33 <K`Tetch>        probably
Dec 12 21:26:36 <kusanagi>        More like the next IT meeting, imo
Dec 12 21:27:15 <K`Tetch>        well, depends how quick i can get the answers from stve wilson
Dec 12 21:27:46 <kusanagi>        Hoping that it's quick, but we'll see.
Dec 12 21:28:34 <FrancisKlein>        convention, then?
Dec 12 21:28:46 <kusanagi>        yeah
Dec 12 21:28:57 <FrancisKlein>        Convention  committee has nothing to report as of this time, will have a meeting at 8pm eastern time Saturday, December 14th at the handle #uspp-con. We will discuss the nominations and we will work to make sure every aspect of the elections next week is covered. We will also establish the procedure for the elections, and any information that is not already known will be shared via the SAB list. 
Dec 12 21:29:12 <FrancisKlein>        tell me if you didn't get all of that
Dec 12 21:29:42 <kusanagi>        last words were via the SAB list
Dec 12 21:29:48 <FrancisKlein>        correct
Dec 12 21:29:51 <FrancisKlein>        thats all
Dec 12 21:29:57 <kusanagi>        Awesome.
Dec 12 21:30:22 <kusanagi>        Onward to the agenda item: finishing the nominations.
Dec 12 21:30:43 <FrancisKlein>        is bluestreak coming?
Dec 12 21:30:50 <K`Tetch>        ok, I'll accept Bradly's nomination of me for Vice-Chair
Dec 12 21:30:51 <kusanagi>        She just had surgery
Dec 12 21:30:54 <FrancisKlein>        ok
Dec 12 21:31:34 <kusanagi>        Are there any other nominations anyone would like to put forward?
Dec 12 21:31:38 <kusanagi>        K`Tetch: noted.
Dec 12 21:31:39 <Rush>        Who the hell is Bradly
Dec 12 21:31:47 <K`Tetch>        not sure if I'll accept OyajiVyse's nomination of me for Chairman
Dec 12 21:32:02 <K`Tetch>        its Bradley where my e's not working right
Dec 12 21:32:13 <Rush>        lol
Dec 12 21:32:15 *        K`Tetch is going to have to return this keyboard
Dec 12 21:32:36 <K`Tetch>        keys sometimes won't go down
Dec 12 21:32:41 <kusanagi>        K`Tetch: understandable
Dec 12 21:32:47 <kusanagi>        Press harder
Dec 12 21:32:55 <K`Tetch>        its like the movement sticks
Dec 12 21:33:19 <K`Tetch>        anyway
Dec 12 21:34:46 <kusanagi>        jyaworski and I were also nominated
Dec 12 21:35:20 <kusanagi>        but again, any other nominations to put forward for the PNC officers?
Dec 12 21:35:29 <FrancisKlein>        unsure... 
Dec 12 21:35:30 <kusanagi>        jokeefe, FrancisKlein Bosun?
Dec 12 21:35:51 <FrancisKlein>        I've thought about it, but most of the nominations I wanted to make have already been done
Dec 12 21:36:00 <kusanagi>        You can second a nomination
Dec 12 21:36:02 <FrancisKlein>        I'm looking at one other possibility
Dec 12 21:36:04 <FrancisKlein>        i know
Dec 12 21:36:24 <FrancisKlein>        just want to see if there are any new ones I want to make first
Dec 12 21:36:42 <FrancisKlein>        nominations would be made as the State, correct?
Dec 12 21:36:49 <kusanagi>        Yes
Dec 12 21:36:59 <FrancisKlein>        ok
Dec 12 21:41:18 <K`Tetch>        so....
Dec 12 21:41:50 <kusanagi>        FrancisKlein: anyone?
Dec 12 21:41:59 <FrancisKlein>        yes, just a sec
Dec 12 21:42:02 <FrancisKlein>        typing
Dec 12 21:43:43 <FrancisKlein>        The state of Wisconsin Pirate Party seconds the nomination of K'Tetch for Captain, (and strongly encourages him to accept), seconds the nomination of jyaworski to QM, and nominates BlueStreak for 1st officer
Dec 12 21:44:02 <kusanagi>        Real names, please.
Dec 12 21:44:04 <FrancisKlein>        ok
Dec 12 21:44:08 <FrancisKlein>        sorry
Dec 12 21:44:19 <kusanagi>        and Blue can't take a nomination, as she's serving on the election committee.
Dec 12 21:44:30 <FrancisKlein>        right
Dec 12 21:46:20 <kusanagi>        jokeefe: do you want to put any nominations forward?
Dec 12 21:47:11 <FrancisKlein>        The state of Wisconsin Pirate Party seconds the nomination of Andrew Norton for Captain, (and strongly encourages him to accept), seconds the nomination of Joseph Yaworski to QM, and nominates Lindsay-Anne Brunner for 1st officer
Dec 12 21:47:49 <FrancisKlein>        which is also a second
Dec 12 21:48:00 <FrancisKlein>        I'm really good at typing, you guys
Dec 12 21:48:05 <FrancisKlein>        except not
Dec 12 21:48:10 <kusanagi>        I was only nominated for Capt. by FL lol
Dec 12 21:48:15 <kusanagi>        so, close enough
Dec 12 21:48:19 <FrancisKlein>        Ok
Dec 12 21:48:29 <FrancisKlein>        nevermind again
Dec 12 21:48:57 <K`Tetch>        I was nominated for vice chair then, and lindsay for Chair
Dec 12 21:49:13 <jokeefe>        we have no nominations, though I will say that one week for nominations seems short to me
Dec 12 21:49:56 <FrancisKlein>        K'Tetch, do you accept the nomination, or still decline?
Dec 12 21:49:59 <kusanagi>        it was discussed at length, and I specifically brought that concern up to the PNC
Dec 12 21:50:10 <kusanagi>        jokeefe: ^
Dec 12 21:53:06 <kusanagi>        Ok
Dec 12 21:53:25 <kusanagi>        Rush: I accept the nomination from the FLPP for Captain
Dec 12 21:54:21 <Rush>        Excellent.
Dec 12 21:55:03 <K`Tetch>        FrancisKlein - pm
Dec 12 21:58:14 *        zby (~quassel@pl.pirate) has joined #pnc
Dec 12 21:59:24 *        zby_ has quit (Ping timeout: 272 seconds)
Dec 12 22:02:54 <Bosun>        rather quiet.
Dec 12 22:02:59 <kusanagi>        it is
Dec 12 22:03:42 <Bosun>        we have people for all position?
Dec 12 22:04:09 <FrancisKlein>        Andrew and I are having a fisticuffs in the pm
Dec 12 22:04:27 <K`Tetch>        hardly
Dec 12 22:04:39 <FrancisKlein>        joking
Dec 12 22:04:56 <Bosun>        no bruises to the face ... he is running against Walker.
Dec 12 22:05:43 <FrancisKlein>        Oh, no worries... Unless I suddenly go bald on the top of my head I'll always have the one up on Walker in looks
Dec 12 22:06:55 <K`Tetch>        ok, I accept the NY nomniation for Chair, with some caveats
Dec 12 22:07:09 <FrancisKlein>        ?
Dec 12 22:07:12 <Bosun>        I had hair like yours 
Dec 12 22:07:14 <K`Tetch>        (and the Wi seconding)
Dec 12 22:07:29 <FrancisKlein>        what caveats?
Dec 12 22:07:48 <K`Tetch>        the caveat being, since it's me and Liz nominated for both chair and vice, that we have a single election, winner = chair, loser = vice
Dec 12 22:08:21 <Rush>        Ooh, that's gonna be a fun election
Dec 12 22:08:51 <K`Tetch>        seems like it'd be the easier way to run it
Dec 12 22:08:57 <FrancisKlein>        unless any other nominations come forward for chair and vice, I have no objections
Dec 12 22:09:22 <FrancisKlein>        Actually, that is exactly what would happen anyway
Dec 12 22:09:29 <kusanagi>        The other nominations have less than an hour to be put forward and accepted
Dec 12 22:09:37 <FrancisKlein>        indeed
Dec 12 22:10:01 <jyaworski>        I accept the nominations for Quartermaster.
Dec 12 22:10:18 <FrancisKlein>        If any other nominations are put forward, the convention committee will have to run separate elections
Dec 12 22:10:22 <kusanagi>        No
Dec 12 22:10:29 <FrancisKlein>        ?
Dec 12 22:10:32 <kusanagi>        They have till 11 pm tonight
Dec 12 22:10:43 <kusanagi>        as agreed upon. The close of this week's PNC meeting
Dec 12 22:10:45 <FrancisKlein>        well, I mean within the time frame
Dec 12 22:10:51 <FrancisKlein>        yes of course
Dec 12 22:11:01 <kusanagi>        OH
Dec 12 22:11:04 <kusanagi>        I just realized
Dec 12 22:11:10 <FrancisKlein>        ?
Dec 12 22:11:38 <FrancisKlein>        is there something we're forgetting?
Dec 12 22:11:56 <kusanagi>        no, what you meant
Dec 12 22:12:14 <FrancisKlein>        ok
Dec 12 22:12:30 <kusanagi>        I think that's going to be it for tonight.
Dec 12 22:12:36 <FrancisKlein>        AOB
Dec 12 22:12:41 <FrancisKlein>        but I don't have anything
Dec 12 22:12:43 <FrancisKlein>        so,
Dec 12 22:12:46 <kusanagi>        Anyone have anything for AOB?
Dec 12 22:12:46 <FrancisKlein>        yeah
Dec 12 22:14:25 <FrancisKlein>        sorry I said yeah for no reason - I do not have anything for AOB
Dec 12 22:14:44 <kusanagi>        Any others? Rush, jokeefe Bosun 
Dec 12 22:14:47 <K`Tetch>        nope
Dec 12 22:14:50 <kusanagi>        jyaworski: noted
Dec 12 22:15:55 <jokeefe>        are there bios / statements we can use to assess the candidates
Dec 12 22:16:34 <K`Tetch>        I can have one for tommorow
Dec 12 22:16:39 <K`Tetch>        ... night
Dec 12 22:16:40 <Rush>        I have nothing
Dec 12 22:16:48 <Bosun>        please submit bios in digital form - in triplicate
Dec 12 22:16:49 <kusanagi>        I can get one together as well.
Dec 12 22:17:14 <Bosun>        we will get them on the web page
Dec 12 22:18:24 <K`Tetch>        although as a starting point there's http://ktetch.co.uk/about/
Dec 12 22:18:29 <Rush>        ...
Dec 12 22:18:31 <kusanagi>        They can go out via SAB
Dec 12 22:19:25 <FrancisKlein>        I have to go
Dec 12 22:19:33 <FrancisKlein>        will you lose quorum without me?
Dec 12 22:19:46 <kusanagi>        We're actually good.
Dec 12 22:19:52 <kusanagi>        If there's nothing more, we can close.
Dec 12 22:20:01 <FrancisKlein>        move to close
Dec 12 22:20:03 <K`Tetch>        since we're effectively waiting ou the clock, there's not really any need to be quorate
Dec 12 22:20:15 <FrancisKlein>        ok
Dec 12 22:20:22 *        Bosun has quit (Quit: Leaving)
Dec 12 22:20:40 <FrancisKlein>        ... Will my leaving be the end of quorum, though?
Dec 12 22:20:46 <kusanagi>        no
Dec 12 22:20:52 <kusanagi>        We're actually over tonight
Dec 12 22:20:59 *        Rush has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Dec 12 22:21:01 <kusanagi>        lol
Dec 12 22:21:26 <FrancisKlein>        ok bye
Dec 12 22:21:34 <FrancisKlein>        do we need to close?
Dec 12 22:21:58 <FrancisKlein>        and someone needs to stay on here in case there are any additional nominations before 11:00
Dec 12 22:22:33 <kusanagi>        I'll be here
Dec 12 22:22:36 <FrancisKlein>        ok thanks
Dec 12 22:22:40 <FrancisKlein>        goodnight
Dec 12 22:22:40 <K`Tetch>        and me
Dec 12 22:22:51 *        FrancisKlein has quit (Quit: Web client closed)
Dec 12 22:27:34 <kusanagi>        woo
Dec 12 22:29:31 <K`Tetch>        since were here, I'd like to propose forming a press group
Dec 12 22:29:41 <K`Tetch>        at some point in the new year
Dec 12 22:29:51 <K`Tetch>        (this is a discussion, to fill time, not a proposal)
Dec 12 22:31:15 <kusanagi>        That was something I want as well
Dec 12 22:31:31 <kusanagi>        I was mentioning it to someone who was interested in helping us with that today.
Dec 12 22:32:08 <kusanagi>        I'd like it to be a bigger than just press, though.
Dec 12 22:32:21 <kusanagi>        Social media, press
Dec 12 22:32:32 <K`Tetch>        social media is a bit different
Dec 12 22:32:32 <kusanagi>        oh, articles for the site.
