(06:27:53 PM) Brady_M_at_work: Vorian: sorry for getting here late.
(06:27:59 PM) sabdfl: vorian, how spread out is the ohio team?
(06:28:01 PM) PWill: skippy and I are both on the Ohio Linux Fest team, and others on the team have also thought that would be a good idea, sabdfl
(06:28:11 PM) sabdfl: is it mostly columbus, or is it quite spread across the state?
(06:28:20 PM) Vorian: 4 metro areas, no more than an hour and a half apart each
(06:28:24 PM) sabdfl: night fernando
(06:28:33 PM) sabdfl: is it a very big state?
(06:28:34 PM) Vorian: sabdfl, I live in a rural area of Ohio
(06:28:44 PM) MikeB-: PWill: is it still connected to the Ham Radio Fest?
(06:28:44 PM) Vorian: Not that big
(06:28:46 PM) jacobmp92: sabdfl: not too big
(06:28:59 PM) ausimage: the top is too wide, though ;)
(06:29:01 PM) Vorian: Very populace however.
(06:29:27 PM) sabdfl: ok
(06:29:41 PM) sabdfl: we'll i' +1 on the application, i can see the team is very well organised
(06:29:58 PM) skippy: MikeB-, Ohio Linux Fest is not connected to the HamFest.
(06:30:04 PM) elmo: yeah, +1 from me too - impressive growth too, to be nearly 90 members in what 3-4 months?
(06:30:06 PM) Vorian: thanks sabdfl :)
(06:30:15 PM) Vorian: thanks elmo :)
(06:30:27 PM) MikeB-: the Loco app looks great, and the Ohio team has been very active on the forums
(06:30:30 PM) Zelut: Ohio is setting a big example for the other US Teams, even us established teams!
(06:30:39 PM) Vorian: elmo, yes, ubuntuforums have been a great engine for our growth
(06:30:52 PM) ***Zelut gives Vorian a playful glare for making the other teams look so small :)
(06:30:54 PM) theidiotthatisme: Ubuntuforums allowed me to discover the Ohio Team, and so far I've been loving it :-)
(06:31:15 PM) MikeB-: theidiotthatisme: great to hear, Woot!
(06:32:24 PM) sabdfl: yes, it's interesting how the ohio team seems to make very good use of the forums
(06:32:32 PM) sabdfl: vorian, did you start out in the community in the forums?
(06:32:53 PM) Vorian: sabdfl, launchpad was first
(06:33:13 PM) Vorian: the forums shortly after our formation
(06:33:20 PM) sabdfl: nice
(06:33:23 PM) meatballhat: I'm hesitant to cheer too much, having just been member-ized, but the Ohio LoCo Team is easily the most positive volunteer organization I've ever been a part of :D
(06:33:25 PM) PWill: sabdfl: Within about a month, we got http://ohio.ubuntu-us.org/
(06:33:28 PM) sabdfl: Vorian: what's your top LP gripe?
(06:33:30 PM) jacobmp92: the forums were the biggest source of mebers, including me :)
(06:33:42 PM) Vorian: sabdfl, its a bit slow sometimes
(06:33:59 PM) sabdfl: hmm... we're trying to figure out how to avoid having to use ssl all the time
(06:34:07 PM) Vorian: other than that, i wish it were open source :)
(06:34:10 PM) sabdfl: are you in the beta group?
(06:34:28 PM) Vorian: sabdfl, not now... :)
(06:34:44 PM) PriceChild: I could help you apply for the launchpad beta later Vorian.
(06:34:52 PM) Vorian: ty PriceChild :)
