+May 15 15:04:36 <dabbott> I will send out the recording date email, 19 june OK?
+May 15 15:04:46 <SwifT> wfm
+May 15 15:05:01 <robbat2> good for me
+May 15 15:05:10 <dabbott> yep, that the date of our next meeting
+May 15 15:05:48 <dabbott> I don't see anything else
+May 15 15:06:01 <dabbott> on the tracker that needs attention
+May 15 15:06:01 <robbat2> i need to check on the trademark submission
+May 15 15:06:12 <robbat2> i did submit it, but didn't get any confirmation yet
+May 15 15:06:27 <robbat2> dabbott: did you get any confirmation from the IRS re tax extension
+May 15 15:06:38 <dabbott> no nothing
+May 15 15:07:16 <dabbott> we may never have filed before and may not be in the system, not sure
+May 15 15:07:38 <robbat2> if we've never filed taxes before, that's a major problem
+May 15 15:07:46 <robbat2> or did you mean the ext?
+May 15 15:07:58 <dabbott> the taxes
+May 15 15:08:31 <NeddySeagoon> Me raise a hand and asks the chairmans permission to join
+May 15 15:08:48 <dabbott> yessir howdy
+May 15 15:08:55 <SwifT> just close the door after you :P
+May 15 15:09:54 <robbat2> that covers activity tracker
+May 15 15:10:10 <NeddySeagoon> heh
+May 15 15:10:16 <dabbott> CPA | Accountant Search
+May 15 15:10:23 <robbat2> CPA/accountant search next, a front on which I have no good news
+May 15 15:10:34 <robbat2> the firm that had said I should come back in may
+May 15 15:10:45 <robbat2> has decided that they don't want to do 501c6 stuff anymore
+May 15 15:10:51 <robbat2> so i'm back to the searching
+May 15 15:11:19 <robbat2> i fear that we may end up needing to use a CPA in the US vs one near me
+May 15 15:11:49 <robbat2> i'm going to phone quatumsummers this afternoon and try to get the contact details for his CPA (again)
+May 15 15:12:28 <dabbott> I know a retired man that said he was worked for non profits before I can ask how much later
+May 15 15:12:30 <NeddySeagoon> That has to be worth a try
+May 15 15:12:47 <dabbott> he is an accountant
+May 15 15:12:50 <NeddySeagoon> both opportunities
+May 15 15:12:52 <robbat2> dabbott: yes please
+May 15 15:13:21 <dabbott> ok I will see him again next weekend
+May 15 15:14:16 <dabbott> Any news on the banking
+May 15 15:14:37 <robbat2> no, i didn't do that letter yet
+May 15 15:14:41 <robbat2> sorry
+May 15 15:14:42 <dabbott> ok
+May 15 15:15:14 <dabbott> ok moving on any more on the money stuff
+May 15 15:15:29 <robbat2> one semi-related thing
+May 15 15:15:33 <NeddySeagoon> robbat2: doen the bank have a form?
+May 15 15:15:52 <robbat2> NeddySeagoon: that i've seen
+May 15 15:15:56 <robbat2> *not that
+May 15 15:16:13 <robbat2> the semi-related thing; infra is specing out a server in wake of dipper's failure
+May 15 15:16:32 <robbat2> we will submit it for budget review early in the week
+May 15 15:16:46 <robbat2> but probably going to be a pricey box to kill a few birds with minimal stones
+May 15 15:16:47 <NeddySeagoon> OK. It might save some toing and froing, if we miss some info out of the letter
+May 15 15:17:14 <robbat2> i'll maybe try to find a human that I can ask about a form
+May 15 15:17:38 <NeddySeagoon> IS dipper ours?
+May 15 15:17:42 <robbat2> yes
+May 15 15:17:59 <NeddySeagoon> and not worth fixing?
+May 15 15:18:50 <NeddySeagoon> We need to keep it within whatever we have in Paypal ...
+May 15 15:19:07 <robbat2> actually, the debit card can withdrawl from the bank account as well
+May 15 15:19:18 <dabbott> nice :)
+May 15 15:19:23 <NeddySeagoon> Ah ... that worxs then
+May 15 15:19:30 <NeddySeagoon> K
+May 15 15:20:16 <dabbott> NeddySeagoon: your up Genfleetoo
+May 15 15:21:16 <NeddySeagoon> dabbott: I've not done anything :
+May 15 15:21:17 <NeddySeagoon> (
+May 15 15:21:42 <dabbott> ok SwifT trademark ?
+May 15 15:21:44 <robbat2> re 'worth fixing', it's uncertain if it's the CPU or motherboard that failed, possibly both; it was purchased november 2011
+May 15 15:21:56 <SwifT> I did not receive any blocking remarks on the draft; I'm going to draft up a patch to update the trademark info we havce on the site soon
+May 15 15:22:08 <robbat2> not our oldest server by a long way, but still possibly $1k+ to fix
+May 15 15:22:10 <SwifT> with some luck, it'll be done by the end of nexgt week
+May 15 15:22:23 <dabbott> good work SwifT , thanks
+May 15 15:22:30 <NeddySeagoon> robbat2: 5 year old ... probably not worth the investment
+May 15 15:23:04 <dabbott> robbat2: what kind of cpu?
+May 15 15:23:30 <robbat2> xeon X3440
+May 15 15:23:52 <dabbott> that was a dell?
+May 15 15:24:03 <robbat2> yes
+May 15 15:24:14 <dabbott> did you buy just the one?
+May 15 15:24:14 <robbat2> r310, svc tag 7G7CVR1
+May 15 15:24:25 <robbat2> yes, it was a single purchase
+May 15 15:24:38 <dabbott> well thats good :)
