Apology for missing the sunday meeting
o.maroko at yahoo.com
Mon Mar 5 16:54:53 GMT 2007
i hereby submit my apology for failing to attend the
meeting, this was occasioned by the fact that i could
not get to connect to the site.
Was getting "cannot connect to server. software
causing...." errors every time i tried. am yet to
figure out why cause i can connect to other servers
but not to irc.freenode.net :anyone can provide help.
as regards the team, i think Miano's idea of splitting
up tasks might work, however we have to identify the
tasks in the first place; the article for instance,
PS, i would also rather we keep this discussion on the
list and try to solve our problems internally. I also
think that may be we should try to set up at least one
face to face meeting to gauge the seriousness of the
team if possible.
" a journey of 1000KM begins with a single step!"
The BIG QUESTION is are we ready to take that step?
