  13. Guus jjrh The Realtime Lounge is shared with a number of projects - most if not all of them do work with XMPP.
  14. Guus I don't know how it come to be, to be honest (although I don't dislike the concept either).
  15. Guus ralphm probably knows.
  16. Guus has left
  17. ralphm We've been doing this for at least 5 years

  21. Guus Restaurant confirmed! I explicitly asked for you Ralph - they're still serving the dame blanche 😉
  22. Zash praise the chocolatey gods
  23. Kev The dame blanche and the steak at the dinner are the high points of the trip. Well two of them.
  24. Guus Dave's outfit.
  25. Guus I've just posted to the summit mailing list on the usage of language. Sadly, people told me after last years summit, that they couldn't follow some of the discussions, as the level of spoken English was to high for them.
  26. Guus I wasn't aware of that at the time - but now that we are, lets try and avoid that.
  27. Kev I'm not sure that helps, unfortunately.
  28. Guus Also, if it affects you, please speak up - either in public (this is nothing to be ashamed of), or in private.
  29. Guus We can only try.
  30. Kev A concrete thing like "Kev, please try not to use more than 4 negations in a sentence" is workable, but "don't use complex language" isn't something I expect people to be able to filter on the fly.
  31. Guus "Can you repeat that differently please? I don't understand."
  32. Kev I think all we can do is hope people ask other people to repeat themselves phrased differently if they didn't understand.
  33. Guus I'm also thinking that being aware of this problem goes a long way to avoid it.
  34. Zash Spend some time reading https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page ;)
  35. ralphm I'm worried about intosi than Kev, tbh. He has the best words. 😭
  36. intosi ...
  37. intosi I'll leave the best words home, and only take the gibberish.

  43. Guus I think your best words deserve a special venue - like the ribs place. 😋
  44. intosi Do we even need an incentive to go there?
  45. Zash has left
  46. Guus no, bu tmore incentives can't hurt.
  47. intosi has left
  48. intosi has joined
  49. intosi Any luck with the Thon, or should we pack sleeping bags? ;)
  50. intosi (I realise they are slow to respond, as in previous years, and I fully appreciate the efforts so far!)
  51. Guus They accepted my signature on their contract, which I sent before their deadline, so I'm assuming we do have the rooms.
  52. Guus Still waiting for the reservation form though
  53. intosi Thanks.
