Liveblogging from the Meetup

Today was the monthly meeting of the OC Metrobloggers.

We started at the Plush Lounge in Downtown Fullerton, but after playing with a new PSP and finding that we coudn’t get on the Fullerton WiFi we all migrated down to Wahoo’s

The discussion today covered everything from Airport Security, County political issues, possible spots for future bloggers, and questions asked when applying for government employment.

Present for the meeting was the famous/infamous Michael Randall, Grant Henninger, Michael Doss, and soon-to-be new OC blogger Jim McMurry. (2 Democrats, 1 Socialist, and 1 Republican – Take your picks on who was who)

UPDATE: So my math was off, just like the Republicans and the Budget. – Mike R.

    Whooof. Are the other egos as large as yours? I can’t imagine how great you four felt when you parted, knowing that you could solve all the world’s problems if only you were given the chance.

    By the way, I noticed that you named 4 particpants in your Mutual Admiration Meetup, but you counted 3 Dems, 1 Socialist, and 1 Republican. 4 names, 5 political ideologies? Was the republican your combined imagination of what a replican would think or say in response to each subject and question? Or was the socialist the only democrat willing to admit his true political philosophy? I’m sure this meetup was the most racially diverse group of 4 (or 5) people imaginable too. All those pasty white yuppies in Wahoos must have wondering if they were in the right county.

    Typical… Unwilling to pay for their own connection, trying to figure out ways of landing free-loading government jobs and I’m sure complaining about the idea of a smaller government and less taxes.

    Here’s a question… I’m guessing the 4/5 of you have jobs (well, if there was a real Republican there, at least 1 would have had a job so that the others could collect their “free” welfare check), so why not PAY for a friggin connection? It’s amazing how you 4 egos take and take and take and still find time to bitch about the “rich” not paying enough to fund your little freeloader programs. Did you ever think that the more you take from the tax payer, the less gets handed to those that are REALLY poor?

    Wow, a couple people woke up on the “someone shit and I rolled around in it” side of the bed this morning…

    How do you know your alive? When somebody shoots at you.

    My offer for burgers/coffee is still open to Jubal.

    Next time post with working URL’s and e-mail addresses if you really care about what you write.

    hey, so what’s up with fullerton wi-fi? i had the same experience at plush just yesterday. i don’t claim to be the most savvy with my lappy, but i did think it would be nice for my boyfriend and i to get out and do some homework outside the house.

    p.s. the owner of plush seems like a bit of a stingy nerd–magazines all wrapped up so you can’t flip through them?, etc.–any one else feel me on this?

    That was my first trip to Plush, and I wasn’t impressed (for the 20 minutes I was there). Could be the walls aren’t good for getting wi-fi signals through, though we were next to a large window. I don’t have a map of the access points handy, but I’m sure some places downtown are much better covered than others. Keep trying new places, hopefully one will work for you.

    When I got the Fullerton WiFi to work I was sitting near the window and it constantly cut out on me. If you go to the Starbucks on the corner you can get on the network with a pretty strong signal.

    Plush is a great place on a rainy night but not on a bright and sunny saturday.
