*** ubuntourist has joined #novawebdev12:02
ubuntouristjelkner, are we meeting either tomorrow and/or Sunday?12:03
jelknernot tomorrow12:03
jelkneri am taking the PRIMEs on a field trip12:03
jelknerbut sunday i can12:03
jelknerand would like to12:04
jelknershould we say 10 ?12:04
jelkneror can i drag you in at 9? ;-)12:04
jelknerjust put on my headset12:04
ubuntouristCan we split the differnce and say 9:30? ;-)12:05
replaceafilljelkner, ready12:05
ubuntouristjelkner, As luck would have it, at 4:30 Sunday, Capital Fringe Festival has scheduled a new rock opera... to be performed at Gallaudet (with audible music).12:06
jelknerthen why aren't you answering?12:06
jelknerperfect, i need to leave at that time12:07
jelknerreplaceafill, do you know when mr_german will appear today?13:05
replaceafilljelkner, not really13:06
replaceafilljelkner, i can call him if you want13:06
jelkneri have two prime interns ready to work with him on helios13:06
jelkneryes, please13:06
replaceafilljelkner, no answer13:09
replaceafilljelkner, you should tell mr_german explicitly at what time you need him online (if you haven't)13:09
replaceafilljelkner, i'll talk to him about it too13:10
jelkneri understand, replaceafill, but in this case, i asked him to work with ericsaenz on helios13:10
jelknerit is up to them to arrange the time13:10
jelknerwe have a real good opportunity with ericsaenz here13:11
replaceafilljelkner, i think we should come up with a specific plan13:12
jelknereric is doing that13:12
replaceafilljelkner, instead of just asking them "work on helios"13:12
jelknerhe likes to write!13:12
replaceafilljelkner, nice :)13:12
jelknercheck this out:
jelknerso ericsaenz is willing to start documenting how to use helios13:12
jelkneri told him i would like him and mr_german (using the 6 of us here + mr_german as testers) to run and document a series of election experiments13:13
replaceafillericsaenz, you have admin privileges to helios, correct?13:14
ericsaenzyes replaceafill 13:14
replaceafillericsaenz, do you need anything else to start the "election experiments"13:15
*** dabmancer has joined #novawebdev13:15
replaceafilljelkner, if you check and try any election you'll see mr_german css work on helios13:16
replaceafilljelkner, maybe you won't notice if you haven't seen the "bare bones" version :)13:16
replaceafillericsaenz, nice work on the google doc13:18
ericsaenzreplaceafill, i don't think so, but German knows a lot more about Helios than i do so he would be a huge help13:18
ericsaenzreplaceafill, thanks13:18
replaceafillericsaenz, sure i understand13:18
replaceafillericsaenz, anything specific you want to know, i don't know as much helios as mr_german but it's worth the shot :)13:19
ericsaenzreplaceafill, do you know what the difference between absolute/relative result type is?13:20
*** dalbarado has joined #novawebdev13:21
replaceafillericsaenz, not exactly, but i found this when i had the same question:
replaceafillericsaenz, and that takes you to this (which you may have seen already):
replaceafillericsaenz, this is exactly what i had in mind about that (from the same email thread): "You mean whether I need 50% of the votes or 15 votes to win? Maybe I 13:25
replaceafillshould complete my mock election and it will become clearer... "13:25
ericsaenzthanks replaceafill 13:26
jelknerreplaceafill, the one thing we didn't talk about was glenda's email13:43
jelknerwho knows, now that we're becoming php developers, perhaps we can help Cory with his idea ;-)13:43
jelkneri'll take care of this13:43
jelknerbasically, i'll tell her not much we can do (pun intended ;-) about this now13:44
replaceafilljelkner, right13:46
jelkneremail sent13:53
jelknerlook ok, replaceafill?14:02
replaceafilljelkner, yes14:02
*** mr_german has joined #novawebdev14:18
mr_germanhello jelkner 14:21
ericsaenzmr_german, he is on the phone right now14:21
mr_germanoh ok14:23
jelknermr_german and ericsaenz, you two need to talk to each other, not to me14:41
mr_germanoh oka14:41
mr_germanwhat do you need ericsaenz ?14:41
ericsaenzmr_german, do you have any idea why "user" shows up instead of a google name in public elections?14:43
mr_germanoh you should ask that to replaceafill 14:44
replaceafilli'm about to leave14:44
replaceafillericsaenz, that's something i had to hack14:44
replaceafillericsaenz, that's supposed to be your gmail display name14:45
replaceafillericsaenz, but for some reason it's not working in the server14:45
ericsaenzi see14:45
replaceafillACTION goes to pick his daughter, bb in ~1h14:46
mr_germanericsaenz, anything else ?14:47
ericsaenzmr_german, is there any reason why there's an error every time an election is created?14:51
ericsaenzmr_german, even though I can still access the election just not directly from the 'create an election' page14:51
mr_germanericsaenz, good question14:52
ericsaenzmr_german, adding Helios as a trustee is broken as well14:53
mr_germanericsaenz, I haven't seen that problem14:54
mr_germanericsaenz, we should talk with replaceafill about those problems14:56
ericsaenzmr_german, ok14:57
ericsaenzmr_german, by the way, i'm working on documenting how to use Helios14:57
mr_germanericsaenz, oh good14:57
ericsaenzmr_german, here is the link if you're interested
mr_germanericsaenz, this is great!!14:58
ericsaenzmr_german, thanks14:59
mr_germanericsaenz, actually you have everything here15:04
mr_germanericsaenz, I don't know what you need from me :D?15:04
mr_germanif you have everything15:05
ericsaenzmr_german, i was mostly stuck on errors15:06
ericsaenzmr_german, which i will talk to replaceafill about15:06
mr_germanericsaenz, yeah..15:07
mr_germanericsaenz, good job!15:07
ericsaenzmr_german, thanks15:07
jelknerubuntourist, r u here?15:08
ubuntouristjelkner, Ja.15:08
jelknerreplaceafill was asking me about our relationship with the CiviCRM support company in DC.15:09
jelknerWhich i believe sanjay is connected with, yes?15:09
jelkneri'm confused15:10
jelkner(story of my life)15:10
ubuntouristSanjay is my connection. We became friends when he sent out mail proposing an Ubuntu computer clinic at the Cleveland Park Library and I joined him in supporting it.15:10
jelknerYes, that's what i said15:11
ubuntouristHe later began working for Andrew Hunt of AGH -- the CiviCRM support company.15:11
jelknerso when you repeated his name, i was confused15:11
jelknerso, replaceafill is saying we need to reach out to them now15:11
jelknerthat we are getting into the same business15:11
jelkneri told him i would talk to you about it on sunday15:12
jelknerbut i thought i'd bring it up now15:12
ubuntourist(I was responding to your first statement, thinking I'd get a word in before your second, where you mentioned sanjay.)15:12
jelknergot it15:13
jelknerso i'm not confused, how nice! ;-)15:13
jelknerwe should try to grab a bite with him again15:13
jelknerlike we did before15:13
jelknerlast time i told him we weren't ready to join them15:14
ubuntouristI've met Andrew twice, and he might recognize me, but we haven't spoken much. That said, he seems reasonably passionate about open source, non-profits, and good causes.15:14
jelknernow we can say "we are in!"15:14
jelkneranyway, please keep it on your radar to arrange something when the opportunity arises15:14
ubuntouristOK, I'll reach out.  Would you be willing to come in for a dinner? (I doubt that weekends are available, and I assume you're NOT free for lunches in the city.)15:15
mr_germanjelkner, Should I close the election that I sent a few days ago?15:15
mr_germanto see how many votes we got15:16
jelkneri voted15:16
jelknerdon't know who else did15:16
jelknerthat's why we should take advantage of the 6 of us here15:16
jelknerwhile we have the opportunity15:16
jelknerwe can get all 6 of us to vote on thursday at the same time15:17
jelknerand run experiments quickly15:17
replaceafillACTION is back15:37
replaceafillmr_german, i can have a look at errors tomorrow15:37
mr_germanreplaceafill, oka15:37
replaceafillmr_german, but i'll need to know what to look at specifically15:37
replaceafillmr_german, so create a list of things that produce errors15:38
replaceafillmr_german, and steps to reproduce15:38
replaceafillmr_german, ok?15:38
replaceafillmr_german, in case you're not around to ask you...15:38
replaceafillmr_german, and please include the "User" issue15:39
replaceafillmr_german, so i don't forget about it15:39
mr_germanreplaceafill, noted15:39
replaceafillmr_german, btw, the css work looks nice15:39
replaceafillmr_german, please create a fork of helios in the nova organization in github15:40
replaceafillmr_german, and push your changes to a branch there15:40
replaceafillmr_german, ok?15:40
replaceafillmr_german, i don't want to get lost15:40
mr_germanreplaceafill, do we have a repository for helios?15:41
replaceafillmr_german, no, fork it15:41
replaceafillmr_german, using the novawebdevelopment organization15:41
replaceafillmr_german, not your account15:41
mr_germanACTION is confused15:41
mr_germanreplaceafill, I am a little bit confused..15:43
replaceafillmr_german, you already said that...15:44
replaceafillmr_german, knowing why you are confused would help...15:44
mr_german" please create a fork of helios in the nova organization in github"15:44
replaceafillmr_german, go to the helios repo...15:45
replaceafillmr_german, click the fork button at the top right...15:45
replaceafillmr_german, when asked under which account create the fork, reply novawebdevelopment...15:45
replaceafillmr_german, ...15:45
replaceafillmr_german, still confused?15:46
mr_germanI cant  replaceafill it says "You don’t have permission to fork to these organizations:"15:46
mr_germanI do not have permission to do that15:46
replaceafillmr_german, ok... fork it to your account then15:47
replaceafillmr_german, you're probably not admin in the novawebdev org15:47
replaceafillmr_german, but we can take care of that later15:47
replaceafillmr_german, the important part here is that your changes should be stored in a branch15:47
mr_germanOk I'll push my changes.15:47
replaceafillmr_german, thanks15:48
jelknerericsaenz and mr_german, can you two please arrange a schedule for thursday?15:52

jelkneri can be real brief19:02

jelknerwe have what i believe to be a solid business plan19:02
jelkneri'm going to the credit union tomorrow to ask for a $40K loan19:03
jelknerthat is enough to keep replaceafill working full time beginning aug. 119:03
jelknerand louisea working 30 hours per week beginning sept 119:03
louiseasounds good!19:04
jelknerreplaceafill will dive right in learning civicrm and creating a robust instance for nea4or19:04
*** zOnny has joined #novawebdev19:04
jelknerwith the confidence from doing that, and louisea to hit the streets for us19:05

jelknerbtw. we received our first payment for work z0nny is doing19:05
jelknercongrats, z0nny!19:05
replaceafill awesome zOnny19:06
jelknerand thanks to ubuntourist for bringing us that customer19:06
jelknerthe only other thing i have to add is that i have a plan b, should the bank not be forthcoming19:06
jelknerso i do believe we will be able to obtain the funds to launch19:07
ubuntouriststreetwalking? ;-)19:07
jelknermore or less19:07
ubuntouristI thought that was Flint's gig. ;-)19:07
jelkneronce the funds are in the bank19:07
jelknerwe need to setup louisea to be able to manage them19:07
jelkneri will bring that up with the credit union tomorrow as well19:08
jelknerby next week, i should have this figured out19:08
jelknerjust in time for replaceafill to start!19:08
jelknerthat's all i have19:08
jelknerlouisea, any word from Rena?19:09
louiseaI spoke with Rena yesterday about the BCCC website19:09
jelkneri need to call her19:09
ubuntouristI'm finally starting to see a brief light at the end of the Sound Advice tunnel, before entering the next one.19:09
jelknershe should be encouraged to attend our 7 pm tuesday meetings19:09
louiseashe's almost completed with it and we'll be ready to show them19:09
jelknergreat news, ubuntourist!19:10
ubuntouristSo, I hope to install CiviCRM shortly and see what I can pick up.19:10
jelknerthat will be wonderful!19:10
replaceafilldo you guys think that having a testing civicrm instance would be helpful?19:11
replaceafilleven if it's not "production" ready19:11
ubuntouristAs for NHA (National Hospital Associates), this is probably a good Flask task, yes?19:11
ubuntouristreplaceafill, what's the downside? It seems like a good idea to me.19:11
replaceafillubuntourist, cool, i'll set that up19:12
replaceafilli think we need something to mess up with19:13
ubuntouristAbso-tively, posi-lutely!19:13
ubuntouristSpeaking of Sound Advice...19:14
ubuntourist...still some rough edges on Marco's stuff but my code is now dependent on his latest work.19:15
ubuntouristThe JSON files he produces are stable enough to use as configuration files for my code.19:16
ubuntouristI guess that's all from me at the moment.19:18
*** jelkner has joined #novawebdev19:18
