[17:09:11] <marktraceur> jwild: You should change the topic of this channel to reflect what you're meeting about :)
[17:10:19] <jwild> marktraceur - as an irc novice, how might i do that …?
[17:12:40] <Bence> jwild type /topic and then what you want as the topic and press Enter
[17:12:44] <marktraceur> jwild: Type "/topic something something something | Please note: Channel is logged and publicly posted (DO NOT REMOVE THIS NOTE). | https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/IRC_office_hours"
[17:12:59] <marktraceur> The last bit comes from the existing topic - we keep that there always

[17:15:04] <KatieChan> not according to the client I'm using anyway
[17:15:32] <KatieChan> *shrug*
[17:15:38] <KatieChan> hi raystorm_
[17:15:44] <marktraceur> KatieChan: Mine says /TOPIC [-delete] [<channel>] [<topic>]
[17:15:55] <marktraceur> The square brackets indicate optional :)
[17:16:04] <raystorm_> hi KatieChan
[17:16:09] <marktraceur> Also I guess I can't set the topic of a channel to "-delete"
[17:16:12] <marktraceur> Which makes me sad
[17:17:02] <KatieChan> raystorm_ you here to join the learning patterns thing?
[17:17:22] <raystorm_> yes, if my connection holds
[17:22:13] <Bence> it seems my netbook just can't process the load of a few browser tabs, and Google has decided that I cannot use Hangouts even on my personal account, until my workplace converts - so i'll just look at the slids later :(
[17:22:26] <raystorm_> meh, my connection will not hold either
[17:22:28] <raystorm_> hey bence
[17:22:32] <KatieChan> :(
[17:22:50] <Bence> hi
[17:23:08] <Bence> not sure why they call them *net*books, though...
[17:25:24] <jwild> I'm sorry :(
[17:25:48] <jwild> you can hack out some patterns on your own, and ask questions / share the patterns here!
[18:12:55] <KatieChan> ah lost the hangout
[18:13:56] <KatieChan> jwild, what's the link?
