Andrew down in Australia (who only cooks prawns, lamb or snags on the
barbie), mentioned that he often hangs out here:

"I hang out on #ubuntu-artwork  on freenode."

Sounds like as good a place as any! I was just trying to figure out
local time code to UTC conversions to figure out a good time for a
meeting. I'd like to have as many of us there as possible, so I'm
going to start another thread (man I love Gmail) to discuss that.
Hopefully we can get Jane, Mako, Mark or Jeff from Canonical to pop in
there too and keep us in line. :o)

I'm going to do my best to "hang out" on the above mentioned channel
myself whenever possible. What's the best software for that (for a
person not very familiar with IRC) - XChat?

Alright! Ricky is helping with icons too! :o) I'm a photography buff
too - with some really crappy cameras at my disposal. We'll probably
utilize some photography, but right now the only place I KNOW we'll
need them is for the six monthly calendar background images that we
need to provide for Breezy. I'd personally like to see Ubuntu's first
official SVG monthly background image in Breezy, but we'll have to see
how that works out.
