You have always had good tools at hand for the meeting, so just tell us what you
want to meet on and give us a time with a 2-3 day window before to insure all
logons/credentials can be sorted and we will use whatever you suggest (have
available) at that time.

I'm good. Just let us know what we will use to communicate so I can make sure I
have a working login. If it is freenode based, the it will take me that long to
get my alias sorted so I won't be simply 'guest2187'.

Hopefully you have bought a bit of time to wade back into tde. Darrell has
carried the load lately with the white wizard locked away in the potions
cupboard chanting phonetic and linguistic oriented spells at the Git tree. The
magic is bearing fruit.

Do you have a June etherpad where we can start adding items to the agenda yet?
If so, what number?

Glad to have you back!
