rhiju: i unfortunately need to go soon [8:10 PM]

rhiju: i mean leave chat [8:10 PM]

rhiju: one important thing to bring up is that sharif (ezbot) will be able to help us this year [8:11 PM]

Astromon: thank goodness i thought you were leaving earth or something [8:11 PM]

rhiju: as some of you know he has done most of the new graphics and video for eterna in recent times [8:11 PM]

rhiju: including the open CRISPR logos, banners, etc.! [8:11 PM]

rhiju: so could i ask people to fill him in on current plans (or lack of plans) for: t-shirts, badges, etc. for eternacon [8:12 PM]

rhiju: as i think he can help out [8:12 PM]

rhiju: another thing is that my lab's admin is helping out with hotels and room bookings for the con [8:12 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: im back. [8:13 PM]

Astromon: sweet thanks ezbot [8:12 PM]

rhiju: we just got confirmation that we have the room booked for presentations [8:12 PM]

rhiju: though i need to check if its video enabled [8:13 PM]

rhiju: i am sending out requests for speakers this week too. [8:13 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: exbot and nesa should get together and see if they can come up with anything together im thinking [8:13 PM]

rhiju: i asked for nominations amongst collaborating groups and have not heard back so i will directly contact particular people [8:13 PM]

rhiju: great if nessa has been doing stuff -- in that case i'd suggest ezbot works on other things! [8:14 PM]

Astromon: good idea jen [8:14 PM]

rhiju: is nessa on the eternacon slack? [8:14 PM]

rhiju: @LFP6 let me know if we don't have enough presenters form players -- I could reach out to folks directly. [8:15 PM]

Astromon: i dont think so but let me check [8:15 PM]

ezbot: sure, let me know how to reach nessa [8:15 PM]

rhiju: would be awesome to also have a special eternacon puzzles that we all solve together -- maybe we could convince hog to create one (or tesla if willing?) [8:16 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: Astro has been wroking with nesa I think. he would know better what she is doing [8:16 PM]

rhiju: ok, everyone i've got to run (it would help me a lot in the future if wecould start at 4:45pm PST instead of 5pm PST) -- maybe we can discuss by slack. [8:17 PM]

Astromon: she isnt on the slack [8:17 PM]

LFP6: rhiju: Ok, thanks. Ramlyn had signed up to run a puzzle activity [8:17 PM]

Astromon: i beleive she is making some art for me to present at eternacon [8:17 PM]

LFP6: Should work ok for me to start a little earlier [8:17 PM]

LFP6: We can definitely discuss that [8:17 PM]

rhiju: if nessa doesn't want to be contacted directly, maybe astro just ask her what she's working on and if she needs help from ezbot [8:17 PM]

Astromon: similar to last years [8:17 PM]

rhiju: @lfp6 great that ramlyn is on the puzzle activity [8:18 PM]

LFP6: Btw I have been going back and forth with Rhiju's lab admin a bit, and she wants some details on food [8:18 PM]

Astromon: i think what jen meant was nessa may have some good ideas with some of those things you mentioned ezbt worked on before [8:18 PM]

LFP6: She said LKS catering is expensive, and wanted to know if there was somewhere else we could order lunch from (ie, bagged lunch) [8:19 PM]

Astromon: ill see if she wants an invite to slack next time i see her< [8:19 PM]

rhiju: i've got to thead out, but there's anything you need help with PM me on eterna or on slack. @LFP6 many many thanks for coordinating with amanda on gfood. [8:19 PM]

LFP6: Also, was wondering what the budget would be - rhiju you may be able to give pointers on that [8:19 PM]

rhiju: see everyone next week! [8:19 PM]

LFP6: I'll get in touch about that [8:20 PM]

LFP6: See you Rhiju! [8:20 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: @LFP6 concerning my presentation. how much time would you want from me if I fill in for others? [8:28 PM]

LFP6: ezbot: Great, thanks for the help! [8:27 PM]

LFP6: Jennifer: If you could take a half an hour time slot that'd be great [8:28 PM]

Astromon: do you think i could do a test of ED in the current labs jen? [8:34 PM]

Astromon: a set of low and a set of high maybe [8:35 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: this single state labs should have a ridiculously low ED [8:37 PM]

Astromon: oH okay [8:37 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: based on posts in GetSat from way back [8:38 PM]

Astromon: the control lab [8:37 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: yeah [8:38 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: there are postes by some random players that ED is a good indicator for single state puzzles [8:38 PM]

Astromon: oH i didnt see that [8:38 PM]

Astromon: thats great news [8:38 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: only one player I mean. the posts never got traction. I searched after I found that ED was a good indicator [8:39 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: for multstate [8:39 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: i searched in getsat after [8:40 PM]

Astromon: some of these 2 states are similar to older labs [8:40 PM]

LFP6: I didn't see a reply [8:46 PM]

LFP6: Or, well, maybe I wasn't clear [8:46 PM]

LFP6: What Rhiju's assistant asked me was if I had a recommendation of where to get food outside of catering [8:46 PM]
