    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

    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.

    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.

  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
