Hi again everyone!

A quick reminder that the fundraising team will be having IRC office hours today, Friday November 5th, at 22:00 UTC (15:00 PDT, 18:00 EDT 23:00 CET) in the #wikimedia-office channel of the Freenode IRC network.

If you are interested in what we have been doing recently I encourage you to take a look at the Meta fundraising portal at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising_2010  or join us on IRC in the #wikimedia-fundraising channel at any time.

If you do not have an IRC client, there are two ways you can come join the chat using a web browser:  First, using the Wikizine chat gateway at http://chatwikizine.memebot.com/cgi-bin/cgiirc/irc.cgi. Type a nickname, select irc.freenode.net from the top menu and #wikimedia-office from the following menu, then login to join.

Or, you can access Freenode by going to http://webchat.freenode.net/ , typing in the nickname of your choice and choosing #wikimedia-office as the channel. You may be prompted to click through a security warning, which you can click to accept.

Please feel free to forward and translate this email to any list I may have missed and I hope to see everyone there!
