  28. ralphm nyco: for the dinner, they will ask you to send in menu choices. We used Google Forms for this in previous years
  29. nyco oh, thx, good reminder
  30. daniel has left
  31. ralphm So what I usually did is call them, explain that like last year we'd like to come on thursday
  32. ralphm The traditional menu
  33. ralphm I'll copy the form from last time so you can edit it
  34. ralphm nyco: what's your google account address?
  35. Guus on another note: swag design. I'm hoping that one of you can produce something, as I'm rubbish at stuff like that. Also, taking into account that things need to be done next week, we shouldn't wait to long.
  36. Dave nyco, FWIW, they do speak French - Florian always spoke to them in French - as well as Dutch.
  37. Guus Dave, I was hoping for you to do the "hello my JID is" sticker design, and for Ralph to design the banner.
  38. ralphm Guus: I can have a table cloth made, but I found out that the XSF as such doesn't have a logo :-D
  39. Guus ralphm: use the XMPP logo?
  40. Guus (also, we probably need two table cloths, as we have two tables, iirc?)
  41. Dave Guus, I'll sort the sticker design now.
  42. Guus Thanks Dave
  43. Guus We'll probably need to decide today if we will do shirts - and if so, have a design.
  44. Guus (or anything to sell, basically)
  45. ralphm Guus: good point. I'll probably use the logo on two sides and put XMPP Standards Foundation in the middle somehow, using the same font
  46. Guus ralphm: works for me :)
  47. Dave Guus, You Got Mail™
  48. Guus which of us is Tom Hanks?
  49. Guus Dave, could you use the updated logo? https://xmpp.org/images/logos/xmpp-logo.png
  50. Guus there also aught to be a svg of that, looking...
  51. Dave Guus, Oh, fart. I'll need an SVG, but I grabbed the first one I found on Google, which is the one on Wikipedia as it happens.
  52. Guus https://xmpp.org/theme/images/xmpp-logo.svg
  53. Guus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XMPP_Standards_Foundation <-- correct one?
  54. Dave Oh. Yes.
  55. Guus Dave, perhaps it's better to make it square, to prevent issues with the curvature in the sticker process be different from what you designed?
  56. Dave Ah, you mean the corners? I literally grabbed a template. I can make one like that too.
  57. Guus I'm assuming that they'll apply a curvature on the corners themselves. It'd look messy if that's slightly off from what we have in the design. It'd be safer if they can just chop off what the want.
  58. Guus 'they' being stickermule
  59. Guus ralphm, were you going to do the banner design?
  60. Dave Guus, That OK?
  61. Guus awesome
  62. Guus I'll order 'm right away
  63. ralphm I'm not doing a banner design, I was looking at table cloths
  64. ralphm What would you want on a banner?
  65. ralphm Dave: I have all the SVGs
  66. ralphm I even made a proposal for a design for the summit shirts
  67. ralphm https://upload.ik.nu/upload/115f5061-a14b-47b7-b770-c5ab4fcc18fc/summit_Brussels_2018.svg
  68. Guus Does 2" by 3" for those "hello my jid is" stickers seem about right?
  69. ralphm https://upload.ik.nu/upload/de17e0c2-163c-4507-bdce-af108faa478a/xmpp_table_cloth.svg
  70. ralphm Possible table-cloth design
  71. Guus For the banner, I was thinking for a bulletpointed list with our key characteristics, as listed on: https://xmpp.org/about/technology-overview.html Would be a nice conversation starter.
  72. ralphm (note that it is 2000x2000mm, the tables are 1800 wide and 800 deep. So then we have 600 slack on each side, with the print being roughly 400 high)
  73. Guus Looks good, but Is that the correct font?
  74. ralphm It might not render properly if you don't have the correct font indeed. Let me create a rendered version for you
  75. Guus Eurostile Bold Extended, right?
  76. Guus also, are you going for a white cloth? a black one might be retain its clean-ish look longer.
  77. ralphm https://upload.ik.nu/upload/fe54241c-3bd7-470e-baa7-4f2ff678e950/xmpp_table_cloth.pdf
  78. Dave Guus, Whatever fits. I think they're 7:4 ratio as designed.
  79. Guus font looks ok on that one, thanks ralphm.
  80. Guus Dave, I can specify any size ,that's why I'm asking :)
  81. ralphm The font is called OPTIEEdgarBold Extended
  82. ralphm Guus: I think white is fine
  83. ralphm We did that before
  84. Guus Google's first hit on OPTIEE Edgar Bold says "Original is Eurostile" - so it's probably pretty much the same :)
  85. Guus ok, white works for me too. Just being my mum and not allow me to wear white stuff :P
  86. Guus ok, ordered the stickers
