    emus, proposed toot: Right on time for world backup day (march 31st, tomorrow), one of the XSF servers has suffered fatal hardware failure after about 20 years of service. This affects primarily our mail services (e.g. the standards mailing lists), after we already re-routed our DNS. We're now working on getting a replacement up & running and will keep the community posted. #xmpp #infrastructure #backups

    Wow, nice work on all that translation :)

  16. pep.

    I have to admit I skipped a few :x

  17. pep.

    hmm, and I don't have any snikket sticker..

  18. pep.

    Stickers are really expensive though

  19. emus

    pep.: you can request at board to get a refund

  20. pep.

    Refund what? Snikket stickers?

  21. emus

    pep.: preparing such material for xmpp community works

  22. emus

    or printing

  23. pep.

    Well I haven't asked for an invoice this time because I didn't think this would be reimbursed at all. Judging by past experience. It's not like I was minting XMPP stickers :P

  24. emus

    minting? sprints can request support from xsf board. not much but should be sufficient to cover prints

  25. pep.

    minting is generally used to say "manufacturing money". Just s/minting/printing/ :)

  26. emus

    well what I see is about xmpp community right?

  27. pep.

    Sure. Well it's what I want to promote from the XMPP community

  28. emus

    looks legit to me

  29. pep.

    Forget it anyway. I wasn't gonna ask and I'm still not going to ask.

  30. emus

    ok, just saying
