wasn't there.

this must've been a huge disappointment for Youssef ;p well, c ya next year isa.

YoussefAssad's picture

Yes and no.

Would certainly have been nice to see you, but I wasn't there either.

For me, it was a choice between:

  1. Being with sweaty male linux nerds in the Sakia for several hours discussing software licenses and text editor preferences, or
  2. Being in Ras Sidr on the beach with a beautiful woman.

While I agonized over the two very attractive options for a long time, eventually the expectation of encountering dorky emacs users made me take the second option.

Correction

There was not only "Sweaty male linux nerds"

our total number was 35, and there were 5 girls attending the meeting which makes for 14.28% of the total attendance.

It's not a high percentage, I admit, and we should work on attracting more girls/women to our group, put u cant just dismiss it and say "sweaty male linux nerds".

Is it possible to postpone it

Is it possible to postpone it again to 16/7 ? Phaeron has an exam on the 10th of July thus won't be able to attend ?

Alaa's picture

IMO it is not

IMO we should not delay again.

phaeron is a very important and active member but he seems to be the only one who has this exam, it is impossible to find a date that is perfect for anyone.

when we delayed for sanawi it was because this potentially affects a large group of members.

we already gave sakia two dates, we want to use the summer time for increased activity the weeks of july are crucial and we should get done with the meeting and focus on activities.

ma3lesh phaeron but I say we go ahead.

when do you guys finish exams? if this is sanaweya 3ama then we definatly need to wait till the end of exams.

one thing we might talk about

one thing we might talk about there is the large number of hotmail accounts that have been hijacked (hotmail in particular, i'm not sure about other email services that are .NET Passport-enabled) allegedly without any user-driven actions that trigged any form of malware.

What is that supposed to be a

What is that supposed to be and how is this related to either GNU/Linux and FLOSS or EGLUG ?

"one thing we might talk abou

"one thing we might talk about"

i mean it was just a suggestion. i know it's not directly related to GNU/Linux or OSS but it's a kind of national concern to all who pursue a "safe" environment and infrastructure (that's why more and more people migrate to linux, at the first place). And we all know about the "security-oriented" nature of people who choosed linux as their operating system. I read some banner in IRC about alaa losing his, and i kinda lost mine for only 30 minutes (!!) today morning! every couple of days you hear about yet another one losing it! so anyways it was just a suggestion. take care.

huh

I lost my hotmail account?

I never had a hotmail account.

Diaa Radwan

ok great.. i have another not

ok great.. i have another not-so-related question.. what's a "conceptor"? i read this word in many of ur previous meeting followups.. it's not even a proper english word AFAIK (and doing a simple search in dict.org returns zero results).. thx

Alaa's picture

lets discuss this first

its important for as all active members to join this meeting, so lets please discuss the date first so we can choose a time that is suitable to most people
