jelknerso that your html is clear, semantically meaningful, and easy to read13:01
jelknerand your css is as simple and easy to read as it can be13:01
mr_germanjelkner, sure13:01
jelknerthen even a fool like me will be able to work with it ;-)13:01
jelknerwe tried out the work flow i am proposing with a few different projects this year13:02
jelknerit seemed to work wonderfully13:02
mr_germanhello replaceafill 13:03
jelknerso i'm waiting for the email from github asking me if i want to be a collaborator on your nea4or repository13:03
jelkneror whatever else you called it13:03
replaceafillhi mr_german13:03
mr_germanjelkner, I just sent you the invitation13:04
jelknerand i just accepted13:06

mr_germanNo, but I read the documentation13:08
mr_germanreplaceafill, I have this one13:09
mr_germanjust an example13:09
replaceafilland that's "running" from the repo you just shared with jelkner?13:10
replaceafillmr_german, ^13:10
mr_germanyes replaceafill 13:10

replaceafillthanks, i just wanted to make sure that was not a blocker13:11
jelknerlet's put a footer there with the nova web development logo13:11
mr_germanjelkner, it needs work, that's what I going to do today13:12
* replaceafill hates text on images...13:12
* jelkner does too13:13
*** mjsir911 has joined #NovaWebDev13:13
jelknermjsir911, how is your first day at work?13:13
jelkneror perhaps you should be working instead of answering my question?13:14
* mr_german is on the phone..13:15
replaceafilljelkner, so anything else for tomorrow's agenda?13:17
jelknernot sure13:17
jelknerwhat do you think?13:17
replaceafilli can't think of anything else13:17
jelknerso it can be a short meeting then13:17
jelknerbut it is important to have it13:18
* mr_german is back13:21
mr_germanI'm back13:21
mr_germanreplaceafill, Could you have a hangout meeting today with me at 6pm? *our time*13:24
jelknermr_german, i just forked the repo, and invited you to be a collaborator13:25
jelknerit makes more sense that way13:25
jelkneri needed access to settings to be able to setup dns13:25
jelknerand i'm the one who will be working with the site the most once you set it up anyway13:25
jelkneri'm working on dns now13:25
mr_germanjelkner, If I update my repository this one does it?13:26
jelkneryou can even delete yours if you wish13:27
jelknerwe should use this new one13:27
mr_germanjelkner, ok! 13:27
jelkneryou can push to it13:27
jelknerask replacaefill how to point git at it13:27
replaceafillgit remotes13:28
mr_germanjelkner, let me try to make a change13:28
replaceafillif you don't want to get bogged down by that just clone jelkner's in a different directory and work from there13:29
jelknerbut it is easier for us to share, replaceafill13:31
replaceafilljelkner, hm?13:31
jelknerwe are collaborators13:31
jelknerhe can just push directly to my repo13:31
jelknerlater, if he wants a test branch, he can make one13:32
mr_germanjelkner, yep13:32
jelknerbut for now, fastest workflow is one branch13:32
replaceafillremotes would be useful if mr_german works in his repo and yours at the same time13:32
replaceafillbut in this case i'd recommend just dropping mr_german's and work on yours13:33
*** mjsir911 has joined #NovaWebDev13:41
jelknerjust for future reference13:51
jelknermr_german, u still here?13:54
jelknerit worked!13:54
replaceafillwow, you guys are fast!13:54
jelknersweet, now i fully agree with replaceafill about the logo13:55
jelknerdo you think ncerna can do this with text?13:55
jelknerotherwise, let's not get bogged down with it13:56
jelknernow we need a website13:56
jelknercolors of the site should match nicely with the colors in the logo13:56
jelknermr_german, i'll be at gallaudet tomorrow with some time to work on this website13:56
jelknerbut you can feel free to work on it between now and then13:57
