  39. intosi https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Summit_22 IIRC
  40. SaltyBones has joined
  41. SaltyBones Hm...we should decide on a time at which we meet at some point. :)
  42. mathieui it has been notified on list, at least
  43. SouL SaltyBones, check this out https://mail.jabber.org/pipermail/summit/2018-January/001882.html
  44. SaltyBones ah, thank you
  45. intosi I have updated the wiki page as well.

  50. SamWhited Thon EU is fancier than the central location… I am excited to have a red duck this time.
  51. intosi Excellent!
  52. SouL Red duck?
  53. intosi Your coding efficiency will be record high with an actual rubber duck.
  54. Guus Don't spoil the surprise!!
  55. intosi has left
  56. SamWhited Guus: I was going to take a picture, but Conversations doesn't support 0382 so I guess I'll wait…
  57. intosi has joined
  58. SamWhited SouL: you'll see… (if you did the group reservation)
  59. SamWhited intosi: I still haven't finished my slides, so I will make good use of it.
  60. intosi Good, good.
  61. ralphm has left
  62. SaltyBones I think I have managed to move all my meetings and might actually be there tomorrow.
  63. SaltyBones I'm not sure why, but I find that surprising. :)
  64. Guus awesome, good to have you there!
  65. SouL SamWhited [09:55]: > Guus: I was going to take a picture, but Conversations doesn't support 0382 so I guess I'll wait… It has been always in my plans, I hope soon take a look at the code again
  66. SamWhited excellent!
  67. SaltyBones Can't 0382 functionality be emulated by posting a link?
  68. SouL SaltyBones, the idea is that clients that have inline image display, could hide that, for instance
  69. SouL Some clients parse the link and download the image to display it
  70. Guus has left
  71. SamWhited Does anyone know off the top of their head if ING will change money if you're not a customer (I was so sad they sold their U.S. branch, now my bank doesn't work in Europe anymore :( )
  72. SaltyBones has left
  73. Guus As time is running out (apologies for the delay), I'm cross-posting this invitation for _you_ to attend the XSF Dinner 2018 in a couple of places. Please help me spread the word! If you're interested in joining us, please RSVP by fill out a short form at https://goo.gl/forms/vgzWXyiRo5ne43yX2 but do so today!
  74. SamWhited Guus: what day is the dinner? The form doesn't say.
  75. SouL SamWhited, in Thursday
  76. SouL I would say?
  77. Guus Thursday, yes
  78. SamWhited ooh, this is the place that had really good Escargot; excellent!
  79. Guus I have now added the date to the form, thanks Sam
  80. SouL on Thursday, not in Thursday... My english.. Hah :D
  81. jonasw has joined
  82. SamWhited has left
  83. SouL Form filled
  84. SaltyBones has joined
  85. SouL Guus, could you check if you received my form? It's just that I haven't got any email back. If you can't right now (I understand, I'm hurrying myself) don't worry.
  86. Guus SouL: you'll have the roast chicken, amongst others.
  87. mathieui Guus, dinner choices are hard :(
  88. Guus mathieui: I like to challenge you. :)
  89. jonasw I’m hungry, that’s not fair
  90. ralphm has joined
  91. mathieui that too
  92. SouL Guus, haha, great!
  93. Tobias has joined
  94. SouL Yeah it's hard, since it's my first time I picked chicken, there are usually no surprises with chicken xD
  95. mathieui surprises in fancy restaurants are usually good
  96. mathieui except that one time in the US where all we’ve got was $80 fried chicken
  97. jonasw mathieui, mh, I’m sceptical
  98. jonasw but I’m also not attending, so I’ll shut up :)
  99. Zash has joined

  101. vanitasvitae Had to google translate most of the menu :D
  102. Guus I've provided french, english and dutch translations of the menu! That wasn't enough?!
  103. vanitasvitae :D I ddidnt know what "escargots" were. Now I know 😖
  104. intosi All of the menu? No, not all. Had to google Brésilienne :)
  105. Guus thatś the one that I didn find with certainty :)
  106. intosi Heh
  107. vanitasvitae Is it normal that the submit button has no visual feedback?
  108. Guus dunno?
  109. intosi It gave feedback to me.
  110. intosi New page confirming I had submitted the form, and a link to edit my response.
  111. vanitasvitae Guus did you receive my choice?
  112. Guus vanitasvitae: no.
  113. Guus did you miss a required question somehwere?
  114. vanitasvitae Ah chrome did the trick
  115. alameyo submitted
  116. Guus srly? you need a specific browser to fill out a form? wow.
  117. alameyo I have done it from firefox
  118. alameyo did you tried Lynx or smth like that?
  119. ralphm 11 responses and counting
  120. ralphm Dame Blanche going strong
  121. SaltyBones Everybody likes Dame Blanche. :p
  122. SaltyBones soul, the reasoning in 0382 is correct but between providing the interface for sending such spoilers and the possibility for clients to ignore them just like they might preload links it seems like a dubious feature. :)
  123. SamWhited I love walking in places where the signs aren't in English and no one speaks it, saying a random thing on the menu, answering yes to any questions and then seeing what comes out, so no translations necessary as far as I'm concerned :)
  124. ralphm Preferably with non-latin scripts?
  125. soul SaltyBones: will read you later, I'm soaked and my luggage too, argh
  126. MartinH has joined
  127. SamWhited ralphm: indeed, that's even better!
  128. Link Mauve Aaah, I’m late for my train! >_<
  129. Link Mauve I hope nothing will happen on the way.
  130. Link Mauve See you later. \o_

  137. Guus Dinner update: I've just been in contact with the restaurant. If people would like to have a vegetarian dinner, that'll be possible. Some of the menu items are vegetarian (or will be slightly modified to be vegetarian). For a main course, there can be a pasta. If you're interested in a vegatarian option, please add that as a comment to the form (and tell the waiter tomorrow, when ordering)

  155. Link Mauve I managed to catch my train, in extremis!
  156. Guus You make it sound as if you were standing next to the tracks, with a baseball-glove on, and stopped the train while it was passing you.
  157. Guus but, good for you :)
  158. alameyo has left
  159. Link Mauve Oh, it doesn’t also have the meaning of “just on time” in English?
  160. SamWhited It does; glad you caught it! See you soon!
  161. Guus link Mauve: yes it does, but I like to make silly puns
  162. Link Mauve I don’t have anything planned for the afternoon, does anyone want to walk around and talk afterwards?
  163. Link Mauve I’m arriving in Zuid at 3:47pm.
  164. SamWhited Link Mauve: I'll be around and will hopefully have finished my slides by then; it's a bit drizzly, but I'm game to walk around.
  165. Link Mauve Ok!
  166. soul I'm landing at 16:45 and from the airport to the Hotel. It's my first time there so I have no idea how much it will take for me.
  167. Guus weather warning: it'll be cold and miserable in Brussels until saterday/sunday (after that, it'll only be cold).
  168. SamWhited soul: it doesn't take very long; I caught a train to Bru-Central and then just walked from there (though you can also swap to the metro and take it right to the Hotel if you want to avoid the rain)
  169. Holger has left

  171. Vaulor has joined
  172. soul SamWhited: is it better to go to Bruxelles-Schuman? Is all I kept in my mind from what Guus said.
  173. SamWhited soul: yes, if there's a train that goes there
  174. Guus has left
  175. SamWhited I don't think any of the ones I saw stopped there, but maybe I just had bad timing
  176. mathieui Link Mauve, don’t forget to tell me where I sleep tonight, at some point
  177. marc.laporte has left
  178. marc.laporte has joined
  179. soul mathieui: so brave :)

  181. Link Mauve mathieui, ah right, I need to figure it out.

  186. Guus (about half of the summit attendees have filled out the form)
  187. Guus has left
  188. soul Good
  189. soul Our airplane is waiting for the pilot
  190. soul 20 minutes for now
  191. jonasw that sounds very reassuring
  192. MartinH has left
  193. Guus I think it is a good thing that they wait for a pilot, before leaving.
  194. soul Guus: haha, you are extra funny today :D
  195. soul Well, he is here finally
  196. intosi Did you proceed to offload his luggage?
  197. Link Mauve SamWhited, I’m arriving, where do you want to meet?
  198. intosi May I suggest Poechenellekelder? ;)
  199. Guus has left
  200. intosi (for you guys, I will not be in Brussels until tomorrow)
  201. Link Mauve 21 minutes by feet from the train station, wfm!
  202. intosi See Manneken Pis, have a selection of beers :)
  203. MartinH has joined
  204. Holger has left
  205. Link Mauve SamWhited, ping?
  206. Link Mauve I won’t have Internet anymore once I leave.
  207. Guus I've tried pinging Sam for you in private - no response yet.
  208. Link Mauve The wifi in Zuid is weird, they allow for two minutes of connection if I don’t give my email address, after which I have to change my MAC address. ^^'
  209. Guus two minutes? just long enough to check for the train schedule, I guess? :)
  210. Guus If you want to go to the hotel by metro: Maalbeek metro station is closest by
  211. Guus Brussel-Schuman is just one stop further, but is a station for both train as well as metro.
  212. Link Mauve To check for the email they sent me. ^^
  213. Guus (assuming that you're staying in Thon EU)
  214. Link Mauve (I’m not sure where I’m staying, but I didn’t book any hotel (yet?).)
  215. Guus Sam might have figured out that Brussels is the chocolate capitol of the world... in which case I doubt if we hear back from him anytime soon ;)
  216. marc.laporte has left
  217. marc.laporte has joined
  218. Link Mauve (It was originally planned to be at a friend’s place, but he moved outside of Brussels since then.)
  219. Guus Link Mauve: ok, let me know if I can be of help
  220. Link Mauve I sent a few calls for help during the train, I hope some will answer. ^^'

  234. Guus (as well as anyone else that feels like joining)
  235. intosi You realise some are not in this room, I hope :)
  236. Guus Yeah, I just compiled and copy/pasted that set of usernames by hand
  237. Link Mauve SamWhited, found anything? :)
  238. Link Mauve Otherwise I suggest going where intosi suggested.
  239. SamWhited Link Mauve: that sounds good to me, I remember liking that place
  240. Link Mauve Ok, I’ll be there in about 20 minutes!
  241. SamWhited I'll start walking that way, I should be there in 20–25
  242. SamWhited I won't have cell service, but I'll try to find some wifi if I can't find you.

  262. SamWhited there is wifi here, if I were paying attention to my phone :)
  263. jc has joined
  264. soul SamWhited: but are you in a bar or something or just standing at the statue?
  265. SamWhited soul: There's a bar with the sane name next door :)
  266. soul SamWhited: ok, we are looking how to get ther
  267. SamWhited same, even
  268. peter.moestl has joined
  269. SamWhited excellent, see you soon hopefully!
  270. jcbrand SamWhited are you also staying at Thon? How did you get to Manneken Pis? Walking/taxi/bus?
  271. jcbrand OSMand says it's 17 minutes walking
  272. SamWhited jcbrand: I walked, but the train goes nearby too
  273. SamWhited the metro that is
  274. jcbrand ok, we'll walk as well, see you in about ~20

  330. Kev Do people have a plan for Thon to Diegem in the morning?
  331. alameyo has left
  332. Kev Seems to be a direct train from Schuman at 09:31, but that doesn't leave any room for error.
  333. alameyo has joined
  334. intosi Kev: feel free to update the wiki if you think an earlier train should be taken.
  335. Kev Ah, does the wiki already list this? /me goes to look
  336. intosi I updated it this morning with an itinerary.
  337. SaltyBones I'm taking the metro to diegem...
  338. SaltyBones but I'm not at Thon
  339. Kev Does the metro go to diegem?
  340. Kev I thought it was just trains.
  341. intosi It's trains or busses.
  342. intosi The metro doesn't run there.
  343. PeteDreads has joined
  344. Kev Times from Centraal don't seem any more convenient really.
  345. intosi metro / train is an option when you're near the Grand Place.
  346. intosi That's why I opted to mention the direct train on the wiki.
  347. Kev 09:34 from Centraal will get you in not very late.
  348. Holger Do I need a separate ticket for the trains?
  349. Kev 09:04 will get you in with 30 to spare or so.
  350. MattJ has left
  351. MattJ has joined
  352. Holger Different from the Jump thing that works for Bus/Metro?
  353. Tobias i think so...especially since it's out of the city area
  354. intosi IIRC, you need a separate ticket for the train.
  355. Kev Yes, you need a train ticket for that.
  356. SaltyBones Ah, sorry. I just call the S trains metro....
  357. Holger Okay. (There's a somewhat more expensive Jump ticket that lets you travel to the airport, I guess that would include Diegem. But not by train then.)
  358. SaltyBones I have never figured out the exact nomenclature for trains, metro, subs, trams, etc
  359. intosi In Brussels, there's even the pre-metro, which isn't metro quite yet.
