    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 Mailâ„¢

  48. Guus

    which of us is Tom Hanks?

  49. Guus

    Dave, could you use the updated logo?

  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

  53. Guus <-- 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


  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

  68. Guus

    Does 2" by 3" for those "hello my jid is" stickers seem about right?

  69. ralphm

  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: 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

  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
