jelknerthe websites you are doing for PWPC are *very* important13:29
mr_germanYes, I understand that is a good oportunity for us!13:30

jelknerz0nny, say hi to mr_german13:55
mr_germanHello, zOnny 13:56
zOnnyhi 13:56
mr_germanjelkner, I have a question about the document13:57
jelknershoot, mr_german13:57
mr_germanWhat I have to do with those paragraphs13:57
jelknerz0nny, we need to get a picture of you and a bio for our website13:58
jelknermr_german maintains that13:58
mr_germanjelkner, Do I have to add them to "endorsement page"?13:58
jelkneradd "them"?13:58
jelkneri don't understand13:59
mr_germanthere are two paragraphs there13:59
jelknerElizabeth wrote those14:00
jelkneri didn't14:00
jelknerlet's figure out where they should go14:00
jelknergive me a minute14:00
mr_germanYeah, but I have to add them?14:00
mr_germanok, jelkner14:00
jelknerShe put them there because she wants them added.14:01
jelknerWe just need to figure out where.14:01
jelkneri'm looking14:01
mr_germanOk, jelkner 14:01
jelknermr_german, where is the development version of elizabeth's website?14:11
jelknerwe should get you, z0nny, and me working on it together14:11
jelknerif we focus our energy next week, we can finish14:11
mr_germanjelkner, here's :
jelknerthen we can talk about doing kenny's website (if he is interested)14:12
mr_germanjelkner, I've done every change that you said, except for "the header" and "endorsements page"14:16
jelknerthe banner is not your problem14:18
jelkneri'm working on that14:18
jelknerwe *really* need a graphics person14:18
jelknerweb design is an interdisciplinary field14:19
jelknerlots and lots of fun things to learn! ;-)14:20
jelknermr_german, there are others things that need doing14:23
jelknerthis is the chance for us to get the workflow down14:23
jelknernext week, you, z0nny, and me can work together on this14:24
jelknerone request in the document is: Section titles of "Our Plan" page would look better left justified instead of centered, with paragraphs indented a bit.14:24
jelknerthere is a problem with this whole process, however.14:24
jelknerwe said earlier that, "unless there is an issue filed, there is no work to be done."14:25
jelknerso i am violating that rule now14:25
* jelkner needs to file issues!14:25
* replaceafill was about to remind you that jelkner :)14:26
jelkneri'm getting a bit overwhelmed, replaceafill :-(14:27
jelkneri just got an email from Lee Carter's campaign manager14:27
jelknerLee needs his website working ASAP14:27
jelkneri think i should ask Rena_ if mr_german and me can take this over for now14:28
replaceafillwhat's holding it?14:28
jelknerRena_ has class14:28
jelknershe is a full time student14:28
jelknerthat's why we need to build this business around mr_german first14:28
replaceafillah ok14:28
replaceafillyeah, you should ask her14:28
jelknerwe need the full time professional working full time14:28
jelkneri will call her at 3:10 pm14:28
jelknerand then we can give out smaller, time limited tasks to others so when they have time14:29
jelknerthey can help14:29
jelkneruntil we have enough business for two full time professionals, etc.14:29
jelknermanaging this will be what makes us or breaks us14:30
jelknerin the mean time, mr_german, we need you working full time over the next period of time14:31
jelknerreplaceafill, let's do that14:31
jelknerwe have zoom, let me know when we need to recharge the batteries14:31
mr_germanOk, jelkner 14:32
replaceafilljelkner, will do14:32
jelknernow, i want to check out the git repo for elizabeth's website14:32
replaceafillmr_german, full time means working ~8h a day, pushing to get things done as soon as possible14:33
replaceafill(just for the record)14:33

mr_germanjelkner, give me a sec16:31
mr_germanjelkner, Did they change the ssh password?16:33

mjsir911are you getting an error or just password incorrect?16:40
jelknerit should be, mjsir911 and mr_german16:40

mr_germanI think the password is the wrong one mjsir911 16:40
mjsir911btw that document is readable by the outside world, can someone make that readable only to novawebdev ASAP16:40
replaceafilljelkner, mjsir911, mr_german oh my16:41
replaceafillwho's creating these files?!?!16:41
replaceafillthis file is public guys16:41
replaceafillwe should create this kind of files in a protected directory16:42
mjsir911or not make them publicly accessible at all16:42
replaceafilland we should review the rest16:43
replaceafill(files with credentials)16:43
replaceafilljelkner, i'm back btw16:43
jelknerit's not public anymore, but as we discussed at our meeting, we shouldn't be posting urls here16:43
jelknersince our logs are public16:44
mjsir911the password seems to have been changed16:44
jelknerthis is a learning process16:44
jelknerwe are aiming for maximum transparency in our process16:44
replaceafilljelkner, i don't mind putting links to private things16:44
mjsir911jelkner we shouldn't leave it up to obscurity to make sure people cant access our google docs, just dont make them public16:44
