    chemist sent mails to board and nokia about TM, as noted above?

Topic (IRC cloaks):

  • x-fade did not answer rzr's email at all... We are contacting Freenode staff directly, with the angle of having trademark owned by Hildon Foundation; previously the channels "belonged" to Nokia

Topic (eV: bank account):

  • We are trying to find a bank that is easy to set up with the MCEV account, that is usable both in Finland and in Gernmany.
    juiceme has contacted Handelsbanken, and they cannot open the account from Finland, as the e.V. is registered in Germany, but the other way is possible.
    Now we need to ask the German branch if they are willing to send the papers for signing to juiceme's local bank branch.
