Hi all,

almost missed the chat yesterday. And when I logged in I got distracted by #olpc-devel talk. A minute later David came back, but I didn't see that. Sorry.

But: If I'm not there, that's no reason not to chat :) Anybody can lead the discussion if it gets too disorganized, but usually we're pretty civilized, so it should rarely be necessary.

So here is a rule: Do not wait more than 15 minutes. Just start. I'll see it in the logs later so I can still post a summary (though it would be awesome if someone beat me to it).

Anyway, next chat is next Monday, same time as always:


Hope you'll be there (and I'll try to attend too).

[21:05:13] <Richo2> hi
[21:06:06] <dcorking> hi Richo2 - when does the meeting start?
[21:07:36] <dcorking> is storybot down again?
[21:11:53] <Richo2> I think it should have started already
[21:13:09] <dcorking> I have only lurked in a couple of these.  bertf normally leads them doesn't he? Is randall travelling at the moment?

[21:17:00] <-- Richo2 (~c9d56472 at skylab.immuexa.com) has quit (Quit: CGI:IRC (Ping timeout))
[21:21:13] <bertf> hi folks - sorry I'm late
[21:21:26] <bertf> you could've started already ;)
[21:24:59] <bertf> dcorking: storybot has been down for months, and it's unlikely to come back
[21:25:12] <bertf> jecel was looking onto other logging options
[21:25:19] <bertf> for now I just email the logs manually
[21:26:18] <dcorking> shame: I guess a decision should be made and the link removed from http://squeakland.org/discuss/
[21:36:37] <dcorking> is the meeting starting?  if not, any thoughts on jecel's idea on porting Cog VM to the XO-1?
[21:38:46] <jecel> I was looking at the Cog sources to get an idea of how complex this would be. It seems doable, but not easy
[21:40:05] <dcorking> hmm.  Sounds like something that would distract the squeak experts from doing the next Sugar release on time, and not something for average smalltalkers.
[21:40:25] <jecel> About the logging, I didn't remember we had agreed that I would check the options and so haven't yet done so
[21:40:47] <dcorking> however, I wonder if qemu could be used to emulate the missing instructions: at least as a proof of concept
[22:07:44] <dcorking> is the meeting over?
[22:10:43] <dcorking> does the showcase still give trouble when a user uploads a new version of an existing project?
[23:47:14] <-- dcorking (~dcorking at has quit (Quit: Leaving)
