15:36 JohnTravis mgage:  Anyone on the conference call today?  I'm actually in class...students working on a problem at the moment.
15:36 mgage_ i'm on the conference call but no one else has shown up.
15:37 JohnTravis Gotcha.  Djun is logged into the Google Doc for the call but has not responded to a note I left.
15:37 mgage_ I'm in contact with Djun -- I'll be talking with him at noon today.  he's in blackstone, England  dancing.  :-)
15:37 mgage_ sorry I meant Blackpool, England
15:37 mgage_ the seaside resort
15:37 JohnTravis LOL.  His ballroom/blackpool/etc.
15:37 mgage_ yep.   ttyl
15:41 aubreyja joined #webwork
15:50 mgage_ aubreyja:  nobody showed up at the conference call so I'll be leaving that shortly.  I'm supposed to touch base with Djun at noon -- he's in England.  He listed some hotels however on the google docs so I'm going to make reservations and start recruiting people
15:50 aubreyja Hi - sorry - totally forgot about it - should I hop on?
15:51 mgage_ no -- no-one there
15:51 aubreyja Nobody was there last time either...
15:51 mgage_ :-)
15:51 JohnTravis Hey, we did meet on the 16th.  What number did you dial?
15:52 aubreyja I'll be coming up to Ann Arbor the morning of the 2nd - when is everyone leaving?  I can leave as late as the morning of the 4th
15:52 mgage_ Guess it's summer.
15:52 aubreyja yeah
15:52 JohnTravis I'm leaving on Monday the 3rd since I have summer school class and can't miss another one.  I only reserved my room through Monday morning so you
15:52 mgage_ there is a schedule on the doc.  I'm leaving Monday late afternoon
15:52 JohnTravis 'll have to crash with someone else that last day if they won't extend.
15:53 aubreyja That's fine - it's only a 3 hour drive back to my parents, so I can leave late Monday
15:53 JohnTravis Gotta go back to teaching...their in=class work is over.
15:53 mgage_ ttyl
17:11 aubreyja mgage, mgage_: do you have a roommate for Seattle (I thnk JT told me you were going)
17:13 mgage_ I don't know -- Beezer said something about sharing a room but nothing definite.  Originally I wasn't planning to go to sage because I had a commitment the week after before the vancouver camp.  That went away so I'm planning to hang out in the northwest for a few days between camps.  :-)
17:13 mgage_ I didn't know you would be there  as well -- that might mean we can actually finish this sage plugin'
17:13 mgage_ for WW
17:14 mgage_ aubreyja:
17:14 aubreyja yeah, things have been up in the air for me, but my wife' s going to london that week so we definitely aren't moving then!
17:15 aubreyja the sage plugin is my goal too
17:15 JohnTravis My goal three.
17:15 mgage_ kk -- let's see if Rob's around   rbeezer:
17:15 rbeezer present  ;-)
17:16 aubreyja Just got your message about Seattle - do you know if mike has a roomie yet?
17:16 mgage_ Hi,  -- we're discussing room arrangements.  Should Jason and I just plan to share a room?  --
17:16 rbeezer I'll check, I'm pretty sure Mike is a single right now
17:16 rbeezer hold on
17:17 aubreyja Also, I can get a flights to Seattle right now for around 440 - that sound reasonable to you rob?
17:18 rbeezer $440 is good, go for it
17:18 aubreyja will do
17:18 rbeezer mgage is not even in Judson's spreadsheet yet  ;-)
17:18 mgage_ aubreyja:  my plan is to come in Tuesday night June 18 -- since I'll be away from home for more than a week with both camps.
17:19 aubreyja sounds good - that's what I searched for, and leaving the evening of the 21st?
17:19 mgage_ I hadn't sent my data in yet.  I was waiting to make sure things were working out in Vancouver.  It looks like they are -- some of the original planning fell apart but it looks like alternatives will work out.
17:20 mgage_ I'm going to just stay in the northwest and travel up to vancouver somehow (I'm working on my long distance swimming for the skagit river)
17:20 aubreyja wow - that sounds fun!
17:20 mgage_ well -- it saves two plane trips
17:20 mgage_ so that helps justify the fun
17:21 aubreyja I think I'm probably not going to make it to Vancouver  - it's the week after?  We need to find a house and start packing...
17:21 rbeezer on the phone....
17:21 mgage_ kk
17:22 mgage_ let's plan to share a room at Seattle then.  I'll send the "formal" reply in to Rob and Tom this afternoon and book plane tickets.
17:22 aubreyja great - just a sec - phone call
17:22 mgage_ good luck with the house hunting
17:25 JohnTrav_ joined #webwork
17:27 JohnTravis joined #webwork
17:28 rbeezer back from parental computer support
17:28 mgage_ kk
17:28 rbeezer all sounds good above
17:29 rbeezer our Governor wants replacement bridge in-place by "mid-June" so you won't have to swim mgage
17:29 mgage_ great -- just to make sure I let you and Tom deal with housing and I just deal with the airplane tickets
17:30 mgage_ that's probably good -- it's a little late to start training for long distance swims
17:30 rbeezer Mike - have you booked a room?  You need to do that, Tom is just keeping track of budget
17:30 mgage_ ok -- I'll do that with Jason.
17:30 rbeezer Since you are sharing, the $137 limit (per person) will not be an issue
17:31 mgage_ aubreyja:  Do you have a room booked already? shall we share it?
17:31 rbeezer See wiki about Hotel Deca contact ("Sandy") and try contacting her for a reasonable rate
17:31 mgage_ kk
17:31 rbeezer Let Tom know the cost
17:32 mgage_ will do.  Jason and I will work something out as soon as he's back from the phone call.
17:32 rbeezer OK - I'm here for about another hour, then in to meet with summer research students
17:36 mgage_ aubreyja:
17:44 aubreyja still on the phone…want me to call the Deca when I'm off?
17:45 mgage_ yes -- then let me know what else I need to do -- what dates will you be there?
17:45 aubreyja I sort of want to fly out the evening of the 21st, but could stay to the 22nd -what's your plan?
17:46 aubreyja (flying in on the 18th like you)
17:47 mgage_ kk.  I might try to keep the hotel room a little longer and visit some people in seattle -- I'll send some emails to the people I know and see what turns up -- also see what Rob's schedule is like and decide where to spend my time before vancouver.  No need for you to stay an extra night.
17:48 mgage_ Matt Leventi is probably in Seattle now, and I know people there from the folk music world that I don't get to see very often.
17:51 aubreyja kk - so check in 18th and check out 22nd then?
17:51 mgage_ for me yes -- I'll call and make modifications if needed.
18:01 aubreyja update - sage days block sold out - looking at general avail
18:02 mgage_ kk
18:02 aubreyja lowest rate: sky city room 2 queens, 350 sq ft, panoramic views, ….
18:02 aubreyja still listening to sales pitch...
18:02 mgage_ :-)
18:03 aubreyja $202/nigh total 934.04
18:03 mgage_ when we split it that becomes reasonable.
18:03 aubreyja should I go with it - ok
18:03 mgage_ yes
18:05 aubreyja that's advanced purchase - with regular $242 with $1119 total, advanced purchase means no cancellation, refunds, etc.
18:06 mgage_ before you close -- did you call Sandy Mujan at Deca ?   see http://wiki.sagemath.org/days48/travel  apparently the left hand doesn't always know what the right hand is doing
18:06 aubreyja no, but person says all of the sage days rooms are gone. Should I try her first?
18:07 rbeezer yes, try Sandy
18:07 mgage_ I think maybe -- just looking at that travel page there is also a travel lodge at $119
18:07 rbeezer Or, try Theresa Raleigh, Sales Manager
18:07 mgage_ it's a mile walk but that is easy
18:07 rbeezer General reservations are totally cluless
18:08 rbeezer TravelLodge is on the side of campus opposite business district, but close-ish to meeting building
18:08 aubreyja kk, phew, just about to give credit card…getting off now...
18:09 rbeezer Try Theresa and see what she comes up with?
18:10 aubreyja kk - will do - she took the number anyway so Sandy will have the profile complete if she can get us Deca rooms at the sage rate
18:13 aubreyja rob - is Theresa's email address on the wiki?
18:13 aubreyja rbeezer
18:17 mgage_ Sandy Mujan's is smujan@hoteldeca.com
18:18 mgage_ aubreyja:
18:18 aubreyja I'm writing to sandy now - cc'ing you and rob
18:19 rbeezer traleigh@hoteldeca.com, but more responsive on the phone
18:21 mgage_ btw I'm assuming that Collegiana is full? or is it not available this time?
18:22 aubreyja ok, I just wrote to Sandy
18:26 rbeezer no Collegianna
18:26 rbeezer Best rate at Deca was $139, foks are individually on the hook for $2  ;-)
18:27 rbeezer gone...
18:32 mgage_ aubreyja: I'm going to run a couple of errands.  I'm ok with whatever you decide about this. I'll leave this connection up -- but I'll be afk for about an hour.
18:32 aubreyja sounds good - I just booked my flight - in on the 18th, out at 9pm on 21st
18:32 mgage_ kk
19:01 mgage_ joined #webwork
19:01 mgage_ aubreyja: back
19:02 aubreyja Hi - I'll wait till tomorrow morning to hear back from the Deca then go ahead and book the travelodge - sound reasonable?
19:02 mgage_ yes.
19:02 mgage_ meantime I'll go get a flight.
19:49 mgage_ aubreyja:  ok I'm flying in on southwest arriving at 8pm on June 18th
20:00 aubreyja great - I'm getting in at 6:10pm
