Present: TM, RL, JE
TM reported that has prepared the Big-8 wiki on a staging server and was in the process of transferring it to our production server.
JE reported on the meeting on IRC last week, which was also attended by TM and drew a number of interested new users. JE also reported that he posted a new tutorial on how to get started with Usenet using Thunderbird. He has another tutorial in the works on filtering spam with Thunderbird. He will put them on the Big-8 wiki once it's up. He also plans to record these as videos. TM said we should look at publicizing the Board's relaunch in more journalistic venues once the rest of our technical infrastructure is up and running.
RL has had no response from Igor Chudov, but has sent a follow-up. RL will try calling Chudov's business number if there is still no response.
TM gave apologies for next meeting.
