I understand we have up to 4 other tablecloths waiting to be sent out
to the rest of the regions.
Jsmith indicated he'd be willing to take one down to FUDCon LATAM and
FISL, and could get it if it was sent to him in Raleigh next week
(he'll be there Monday / Tuesday). Does anyone know the whereabouts
of said tablecloths, who to contact, etc? Or if one has already been
shipped in that direction (LATAM)?
PS. Props to Ben for posting pictures of the new booth-ware. AWESOME!
I'm running a mail server for a group that we want to be well secured.
The thing is that, I'm wondering how to send an encrypted message to
the mailing list that all users can decrypt with their personal keys.
Addressing it to the Mail Server doesn't seem to be the solution. I'm
wondering how people implement these things. Any help would be
Hi my fellow EMEA Ambassadors!
The situation so far on the EMEA F13 media has been like this:
Media was produced by a company and a portion of them was send to
Sascha.  Then Sascha sent out some urgent shipments concerning 2-3
events and left for vacations sending some media to Felix in order to
fill out any urgent need.
Unfortunately none else has seen any media (neither our Africa
friends). I was thinking that the plan that we discussed (among
others) to ship to some crucial regions (5-6 throughout EMEA) was the
most viable one to carry on.
We need to unblock the whole process and assess the situation. Please
consider this email as a friendly nudge/bump :)
How should we proceed? Media is still in the company, so I suggest to
proceed to the primary shipment and let those Ambassadors deal with
regional events and needs.

I was of the impression that you are more experienced. That position
seems to favour you ... this is not about "who wants to be chair?". I
was only addressing a statement that i believe be insensitive.

Cool. Lets get on with it like gentlemen then ... that is, with due

Cool. As we do that, we should employ some diplomacy.

Wow! ... a little more diplomacy. The last phrase was not necessary --
our goals are same (approach may be different).
Okay. I thought it would be nice if you finished what you started. That
is why I suggested the website (of course, I could have done it myself
... as a matter of fact, I have started doing it myself). I'll be
sending you and others the URL for your inputs and see where we arrive.
Okay,let's do this.
