expected to be a very short and low attendance meeting turned into what

was probably the best meeting that we have had to date. There were a

total of 12 people there and we met for the full 3 hours discussing what

we feel the future meetings should be like. We decided that we want to

have a set day of the month for our meetings. The 1st Thursday of the

month at 9:00PM will be the time for our irc meetings while the 3rd
