    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.

    Thon EU is fancier than the central location… I am excited to have a red duck this time.

  51. intosi


  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


  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

    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 :)

  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


  107. vanitasvitae

    Is it normal that the submit button has no visual feedback?

  108. Guus


  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


  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

  129. Link Mauve

    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)

    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


  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)

  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

  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 ;)

  220. Link Mauve

    I sent a few calls for help during the train, I hope some will answer. ^^'

  229. Link Mauve

    No, I’m still at Zuid.

  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.

  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

    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.

  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.
