17:02:55 <nirik> #topic Week in review
17:02:55 <nirik>
17:03:17 <nirik> anyone have items they want to point out from this last week? common problems, things we could document or help out with...
17:03:48 <nirik> seemed like a pretty typical week.
17:03:57 <nirik> One thing I have seen a few times is the new rc.local stuff...
17:04:11 * nirik thinks that might make a good blog post or document on how to set that up right.
17:04:19 <glguy> It seemed like there were quite a few DNS configuration errors (IPv6) this week, but that isn't particularly new
17:04:43 <nirik> yeah, those come and go... I think we may see more as ipv6 gets more deployments.
17:07:07 <nirik> ok, can't think of much else.
17:07:17 <nirik> #topic Tickets
17:07:22 <nirik> we have no tickets this week.
17:07:36 <nirik> #topic Meeting time
17:07:55 <nirik> There was some more talk that the meeting time wasn't great for everyone... does anyone have any proposals on new times?
17:08:01 <nirik> or should we just stick with this?
17:08:34 <glguy> This time works well for me, but did those with conflicts have any alternate ideas?
17:08:37 <Sonar_Gal> nirik, Guess we can ask on the list.  But 1pm East coast time is hard for a few of us
17:08:38 * fenrus02 waves
17:09:13 <nirik> yeah...
17:09:24 <nirik> #info anyone who wants a different time, suggest it on the list.
17:09:35 <Sonar_Gal> yeah
17:09:53 <Sonar_Gal> normally if I can't make it I just post it in op's
17:10:45 <nirik> yeah.
17:10:45 <nirik> ok.
17:10:47 <nirik> #topic Open Floor
17:10:52 <nirik> anything for open floor?
17:11:00 <Sonar_Gal> problem children in -social
17:11:24 <fenrus02> not just -social, they seem to have spread to others
17:11:31 <Sonar_Gal> Ozborne was yet again banned in -social for his behavior.
17:11:50 <Sonar_Gal> And dvanstone has been causing problems
17:12:04 <Sonar_Gal> those 2 are causing issues in some channels
17:12:18 <fenrus02> the second is mostly nonsensical rambling
17:12:35 <Sonar_Gal> I banned dvanstone the other night for an hour so a day is next then week
17:12:37 <fenrus02> the former mostly winges about being +b in -fr
17:13:00 * nirik nods. When disruptive, bans or quiets are needed...
17:13:17 <nirik> lets hope they relax and stop being disruptive.
17:13:31 <Sonar_Gal> I normally do not ban unless absolutely necessary
17:14:09 <N3LRX> Political issues have been brought up recently to in -social. It's very hard not to get involved.
17:14:28 <fenrus02> it's voting season again, politics are going to come up often
17:14:32 <NiveusLuna> Is it really a problem as long as things don't get heated?
17:14:35 <nirik> please do point those people to #politics.
17:14:50 <Sonar_Gal> NiveusLuna, it's against freenode policy
17:14:52 <glguy> Have the offenders been responsive to requests to stop? Do they just get hostile?
17:14:55 <NiveusLuna> ah, right.
17:15:01 <nirik> NiveusLuna: some things like politics tend toward getting heated sadly.
17:15:16 <Sonar_Gal> same as religion
17:15:27 <NiveusLuna> nirik: they do, but there are a lot of people in -social who can take it without getting heated, which is why i asked.
17:15:42 <fenrus02> glguy, generally the conversation goes from calm calm calm to OMGWTFBBQ !  in a flash.
17:16:02 <fenrus02> glguy, best to just divert those to somewhere else.
17:16:09 <Sonar_Gal> there are a few political channels people can join
17:16:11 <nirik> NiveusLuna: yeah.
17:17:18 <nirik> anyhow, if nothing else, will close out in a minute
17:17:23 <Sonar_Gal> +1
17:18:31 <nirik> Thanks for coming everyone!
