Hi all,

As you might know HOT hosts some informal get togethers via HOTs voice 
and IRC servers on Saturday afternoons once in a while, and one is 
happening today. Exact times are a little flexible, but someone should 
be in the channels for the next 4 or 5 hours at least.

We use the HOT "Mumble" server. All you have to do is download a simple 
client (windows, andriod, ios, linux) and connect and thats it, all the 
info you need is here:


You can also use any IRC client if you just want to connect via text to 
the OSM IRC server and join the #hot channel.


Topics for today can be anything of interest. I am also working on 
setting up some Tasking Manager projects for South Sudan and in the 
process trying to perfect my "default instructions" for roads and 
buildings type mapping projects.

Russ will probably be here in a little while working on Activation 
Coordination training materials.

As always, mappers of any level and people interested in any aspect of 
HOT are encouraged to join and ask questions or just chat.

Advanced mappers and people interested in Activation Coordination 
encourage to join as well.

Hope to see you there!
