  1. PayPal policy change: no credit card transfers so we’re going to drop our PayPal account. We’ll see what kinds of surcharges they have though. </p><p>
  2. Laptop rant: Wes is looking for a laptop without XP on it. In other words, he’s looking for an Affordable Computer. </p><p>
  3. Partition Magic and Windows XP are not very compatible when you install XP off of a recovery disk. So the plan is to check out the newer version of Partition Magic, possible via funding from GSAC. Reminder: Get quote and request funding from GSAC in December </p><p>
  4. Who wants to go see The One? EVERYONE!!! Yay, let’s go watch a movie! </p><p>
  5. Collection for a new monitor for Yakko. Anne Marie had the idea. But we definitely want a 17” at least. </p><p>
  6. The money presentation thing would have been today. We can get money for operating expenses (~$200-300). Speaker money up to about $1000 is a slam dunk. Money for a library could get us about $300-400. Rodger thinks the request would need to be made by the first Thursday in December. </p><p>
  7. Project statuses. Wes emailed Isaac about refining the graphics. We have project mailing lists up. We could always use more content. Wes started a Linux Install Party page. </p><p>
  8. Is it wrong to say “booch” in front of women? </p><p>
  9. We should announce more formally that users can have web pages. </p><p>
  10. John wants to know why he likes to put live chickens in his pants? </p><p>
  11. We still need to get out a thank-you letter to Viji… </p><p>
  12. What are we going to do with the Evil Tank? </p><p>
  13. Our webcam is on the way and Wes can probably get it up and running some time next week. Sweet! </p>
