Mushrooms optional. February 20, 2010 1:24 PM   Subscribe

PDX 10.5.1 was ...entertaining, especially after the tequila happened. I'll let someone else plan 10.6 (20 march, EastBurn?), but... PDX 10.7. 24 April, at Enchanted Forest anyone?

After taking my other percentage* there for a birthday, the thought that kept popping up is "meetup. here. soon!".

I talked to anyone who would listen (including several who wouldn't) about making a field trip. Figure on $15-20 each with admission etc; we'd need to work out a caravan kind of thing since many of us don't drive.

Minor details, though; let's do this.

* I am much more than half a person.

10.6 on March 20 fuck yeah. East Burn is cool. Or if people want to do another backyard fire meet-up, my house is always open for a meet-up.

ENCHANTED FOREST YES. I am in, and I can drive 3-4 people in my car (one will probably be JaiMahodara). The mushrooms are optional, but encouraged. RABBIT HEADS!

It helps disambiguate when filing bug reports.

PDX Snow Leopard was back in November.

Oh yeah, here's that front-page Mercury piece on the Enchanted Forest I mentioned briefly, from their 'Best of...' issue.

Oh, right. This is PDX Albino Lion.

I've noticed an odd regression regarding marshmallow handling with the 10.53rc4 alpha, which may slow the release of the next meetup.

But, in all seriousness, mefi road trip sounds like quite the adventure, if anyone can stand having me in their car.

Unfortunately the marshmallow tangent failed to deploy correctly until the Matador (tracking ID PDX, which is a bug which we hope to have resolved by 10.6.

Anecdotal research suggests reinstallment of tequila. This apparently fulfilled the required dependency in question. Unbiased testing along with full debug logs are required to confirm.

Oh man, the Matador? I wanna hear this whole story at some point.
posted by churl at 10:59 PM on February 22, 2010

I approve of both these plans, and tentatively commit to them. If 10.6 is at someone's house we could bring games and try the gaming thing again. Or just drink and burn stuff. Either way is cool with me.

Oh, son of a -- I missed 'mallows at the Matador (not to mention tequila)?? Dependency on public transit stinks (and I still ended up buying a cab home)! Okay, I'm up for both Lutoslawski's back yard and a ROAD TRIIIIP! I will (as should be evident by this point) need a ride. I'll even share a back seat with long as he doesn't touch my side.

There is some discussion here about maybe pushing 10.6 back to the 26th as jessamyn will be in town. Thoughts?
posted by geckoinpdx at 2:34 PM on February 26, 2010

Personally I would be fine with adjusting the date so Jessamyn can make it, if she wants.
posted by idiopath at 2:38 PM on February 26, 2010

me too. i'm not sure about the Wednesday thing for most of us, but as far as I'm concerned it'll be whenever she and the rest of the guests want it to be.

Or we could also just make that Wednesday 10.6.1 or something.

Like I just said in the other thread, I support 10.6 on the 26th, wherever it's held.

And that Mercury article got me all excited about Enchanted Forest, though, like my fellow Carless Wonders in the thread, I'd need a ride. I even promise to not constantly ask "Are we there yet?".

I'll only ask once every ten minutes, I swear.

I think I not only have a ride for 10.7, we may even be able to take one extra.
posted by geckoinpdx at 1:02 AM on February 27, 2010

Word is Friday, 3/26 my place. Jessmyn's coming! MeMail if you need my address.
posted by Lutoslawski at 5:47 PM on February 27, 2010

So we should probably request that the date gets changed in the sidebar..? Or do you think that just reading the thread should be enough?
