UUtopia Report – Zyzzy

  • Sofia rearranged her property, dropping Nightingale and taking another 4096 in Alcott. Freda arranged to rent Nightingale, so it’s staying put.
  • I’m mulling over the idea of rearranging the four regions to form a square instead of a line.

Outreach – Et

  • No recent activity.

Library Report – Bel

  • No report

Saturday Worship Report (from TED)

  • Since mid-October TED has been responsible for all the Saturday services. Thank you TED!
  • TooEasilyDistracted has been leading all FUUCSL Saturday Services since UTstudent stopped alternating as leader. The suggestion of having Open Topic services on alternate events has worked well to reduce leader time stress. On 11/28 TED presented the 1st of the 5 essay Existentialism-to-Action series given on Thursdays over the past few years. There are usually about 6 people discussing, often including a new face and several regulars.

Worship Report (Sofia)

  • Thank you to Sofia, Zoe, Pomona, Lilana and Zyzzy for leading services.
  • The usual rotation is Zyzzy-Zoe-Sofia-Pomona
  • Liliana will have a special Yule service Dec 17
  • TED will lead a service Jan 7

Upcoming Schedule for Thursday services

Here is the upcoming schedule for Thursday services through the end of March. Note the color-coded blocks. This is my way of ensuring that each one of the regular four presenters are in a regular rotation. Please check to be sure that it suits you. We can always make trades.

Re: 10-Dec Has anyone figured out how to record the tiny carolers? Several people have asked for access to a recording. Freda has used FlashbackPro to record SL events. Or Liliana has used OpenBroadcasterSoftware (OBS). Freda has purchased the full version of FlashbackPro.

Zyzzy is working on music improvements.

New Business

  • (Music skipping problems) Zyzzy is experimenting with Plex server. The viewer software is the root cause of this problem. Streaming music, rather than loading MP3s, will solve this problem.
  • A committee to be formed to explore the options and make recommendations on the rearrangement of the four UUtopia regions. Early ideas are that Thoreau and Nightingale move to touch the north coast of UUtopia and Alcott.
  • Liliana and Zoe to set up the Pagan Circle again
  • Freda: Party Dec 25.

Next meeting January 28 at 5:30pm SLT in Sofia’s Temple in Alcott


The meeting was adjourned at 6:06 pm SLT.
