replaceafilljelkner, should 2 include Latino?11:38
ubuntouristMayhaps a QR code on the back...11:39
jelknerthe machine to print them arrives monday11:39
replaceafilljelkner, "Northern Virginia Latino Civil Rights Organization"11:39
nrcernaFirst of all, Welcome hrodriguez  :-) 11:39
jelkner+1 replaceafill 11:39
hrodriguezTahnk you so much nrcerna :-)11:39
replaceafillnrcerna, make sure you use the correct name for the organization11:40
replaceafillnrcerna, you can use the website11:40
replaceafillnrcerna, to get it11:40
jelkneryes, nrcerna, the one replaceafill gave you, not me :-(11:40
replaceafilljelkner, any idea what you want in the back side?11:40
ubuntourist(There's a Debian / Ubuntu package "qrencode" that can generate QR codes. However I suggest running them through a process that turns the resulting PNG into an SVG for better scaling. I have the how-to in my tips file which I'll link to at the end of the meeting.)11:40
jelkner1. our logo on the bottom center11:40
*** hrodriguez has joined #novawebdev11:40
nrcernaOk, Jeff, I'm going to fix that, great replaceafill 11:41
jelknerubuntourist, is suggesting a QR code11:41
jelknerand the logos of the sponsors11:41
jelknerdaniela will be visiting locol businesses to get them to sponsor us11:41
nrcernaIt would help me a lot if you have any idea about the back side jelkner 11:41
replaceafilli don't understand QR codes well, but they're just url/links, right?11:41
jelknerthe card will earn 10% discount11:41
jelknerok, let's move on11:41
jelknerthis can be worked out later among the folks working on it11:42
jelknerACTION done with this item11:42
replaceafilljelkner, can we start implementing this in tendenci with just the front of the card?11:42
replaceafilljelkner, cool11:42
lelkneralfarogreat. next item is Lee Carter's site redevelopment cost estimate11:42
ubuntouristreplaceafill, QR codes contain whatever text you want to contain -- but less text means a better "code resolution".11:42
replaceafillubuntourist, ah11:43
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, because jelkner will be funding Lee's new site11:43
mjsir911you can also embed some fancier things that plaintext, see:
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, he'd like an estimate of the cost. 11:43
replaceafillmjsir911, ah thanks11:43
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, ok, i'll check the docs Stephanie sent and will come up with one11:44
jelknerreplaceafill, can you give me a *rough* idea?11:44
jelknerorder of magnitude perhaps? ;-)11:44
replaceafilljelkner, 2 days?11:44
jelkneras i told lelkneralfaro i'm sending you $, not days11:45
replaceafilljelkner, i think it's just a matter of checking what they'll be able to do themselves11:45
jelknerso i need it in $ ;-)11:45
jelknerwhat we need right now is a decision to move on this11:45
jelknerif we agree team guanaco is going to handle it with lelkneralfaro 11:45
jelkneri need to know i can send you the $ you'll need11:46
jelknerand we can decide to proceed11:46
replaceafilljelkner, i had proposed me taking it because you're already funding my time11:46
replaceafilljelkner, if you're willing to send additional $ for this, i think mr_german should take it11:46
jelknerahh, but if mr_german does it, i can send another deposit11:47
jelknerand we can use your talents for more important product development?11:47
replaceafilljelkner, +111:47
jelknerso again, we are back to a $ estimate11:47
replaceafilljelkner, $400?11:48
replaceafilljelkner, that's a week part time of work11:48
replaceafilljelkner, or whatever you say that correctly :D11:48
jelkneri'll send that down by tuesday11:48
replaceafilljelkner, cool11:48
replaceafilljelkner, thanks a lot11:48
replaceafillmr_german, you're in charge of leecarter11:48

jelkneri do?11:49
replaceafillthis past week has helped us also to get in sync with zOnny and mr_german11:49
replaceafilljelkner, yes! something along the lines of "we're paying for quality work..."11:50
replaceafilljelkner, "if we need to go back cleaning things, that delays us"11:50
replaceafillthat's me paraphrasing jelkner really ;)11:50
jelknermr_german, long term viability means do it well, do it right11:50

jelknerthe six of us that want to be founding coop members need to have a discussion12:21
jelknerso that lelkneralfaro can make us "official"12:21
replaceafilljelkner, her cell is either turned off or busy12:21
replaceafilljelkner, let me try to find an alternative12:22
ubuntourist(BTW I previously promised a QR Code tip: See "Linux Tip #45: QR Codes as SVG")12:22
replaceafilljelkner, no luck with nrcerna12:25
jelknerreplaceafill, let me run this by you12:26
jelknerand you can communicate with nrcerna12:26
replaceafilljelkner, ok12:26
jelknerwe are really close to being a legal coop12:26
jelknerlelkneralfaro and ubuntourist are here discussing next steps12:27
jelknerlike listing us in online lists of tech coops, getting a loan, etc.12:27
jelknerso, we need to establish ourselves now12:27
jelknerhere is what we are proposing12:27
jelkner1. the six of us that expressed interest in being the founding members are: replaceafill, zOnny, ubuntourist, jelkner, nrcerna, and lelkneralfaro 12:28
jelkner2. each member needs to contribute either $5000.00 or 100 hours (at $50 per hour) to the coop.12:29
jelkner3. replaceafill and lelkneralfaro, but working for half their reasonable wage rate, have already contributed $5K12:29
jelkner4. ubuntourist and jelkner have contributed $5K in cash12:30
jelkner5. nrcerna and zOnny will contribute 100 hours12:30
jelknerwhich they will use at the beginning of may to redo the novawebdevelopment website12:30
jelknerzOnny, said OK12:31
jelknerwe need nrcerna's response to make this a done deal12:31
replaceafilljelkner, ah ok, got it12:31
replaceafilljelkner, question12:31
replaceafilljelkner, where does the $50 per hour rate come from?12:31
jelknerACTION pulled it out of his butt ;-)12:32
replaceafilljelkner, the plan seems reasonable to me12:32
replaceafilljelkner, i'll try to talk to nrcerna about it asap12:33
jelknerthen lelkneralfaro will create the spreadsheet that shows the six of us having equal shares in the coop12:33
replaceafilljelkner, great12:34

replaceafillzOnny, checkout the _prod branch (or _dev if you prefer)13:40
replaceafillzOnny, set the new theme as default13:40
replaceafillzOnny, create the content (boxes, navs) as the theme expects13:41
replaceafillzOnny, makes sense?13:41
replaceafillzOnny, so to answer your last question, yes, you need a "new" theme13:41
replaceafillzOnny, your instance is already bilingual, right?13:42
jelknerping replaceafill 13:44
replaceafilljelkner, pong13:44
jelknerzOnny and i are having a discussion here about our cms13:45
jelknerwe need to get you involved13:45
replaceafilljelkner, oh no... i mean, sure13:45
jelkneri told him i didn't like the way the text looked above the logo on novalaciro13:45
replaceafilljelkner, i know13:45
jelknerhe says you wanted it that way so the user could make changes to it13:46
jelknerWTF?, I said ;-)13:46
replaceafilljelkner, no, i wanted that way because i wanted to test that approach13:46
replaceafilljelkner, that area may not ever change13:46
jelknerok, i want to just report the problem13:46
jelknerusers will not want to change their logos like that13:46
jelknernot usually anyway13:47
replaceafilljelkner, yep, notice the usually part13:47
replaceafilljelkner, but let me get something straight13:47
replaceafilljelkner, i'm not married to any decision we've made in the past week13:47
replaceafilljelkner, we're just starting learning this cms thingy13:47
replaceafilljelkner, if you (the customer) think that banner can be hardcoded, that's fine with me13:48
replaceafilljelkner, i could have used yagni for a lot of things13:48
jelknerthis is an art, not a science13:48
replaceafilljelkner, but i was mostly experimenting13:48
jelknerhere be dragons13:48
replaceafilljelkner, but now we're in the position where zOnny can take any of this and adjust it as needed13:48
replaceafilljelkner, as i said in my email last night13:49
jelknerACTION anticipates the call from keri, saying "i wanted to update the site, but i broke it!"13:49
replaceafilljelkner, oh yes13:49
replaceafilljelkner, that'll happen for sure13:49
jelknerlet's start small13:49
jelknergive the users what they really need13:49
jelknernot what they don't13:49
replaceafilljelkner, we're giving users the right amount of rope for them to hang themselves :D13:49
jelknerthe more they need, the more we should charge them13:49
*** ubuntourist has joined #novawebdev13:49
replaceafilljelkner, fine13:50
jelknerif we keep letting our user kill themselves13:50
jelknerwe won't have many users soon :-(13:50
replaceafilljelkner, the users can kill themselves in other parts, not just the banner13:50
jelkneri don't know the answer13:50
jelkneronly the question13:50
replaceafilljelkner, sure13:51
jelkner(typical bs from a teacher)13:51
replaceafilljelkner, anyway13:51
replaceafilljelkner, i consider all of our themes malleable13:51
replaceafilljelkner, if that's the rigth word13:51
jelknerbut we want and need happy, empowered users13:51
replaceafilljelkner, if the customer requests something we do it13:51
replaceafilljelkner, and in novalaciro's case you are the customer13:51
jelknerfor some users, even a cms is going to seem daunting13:51
replaceafilljelkner, indeed13:52
jelknerfair enough13:52
jelkneryou can make me bleed if you want to13:52
replaceafilljelkner, that's why i keep insisting on us not changing the cms too much13:52
jelkneri'm cool with that13:52
jelknerbut should i really have to position the logo font?13:52
replaceafilljelkner, if we start giving people different versions of the cms13:52
jelknerif we are not giving users different versions13:52
jelknerthen let's give none of them banner editing13:53
replaceafilljelkner, +113:53
replaceafilljelkner, but you're ok with the banner "position" right?13:53
jelkneri can go back to asking zOnny to fix the banner13:53
replaceafilljelkner, so we could adjust our base template to always have it13:53
jelkneri don't like the logo text13:53
replaceafilljelkner, and if not used, just not display it13:53
replaceafilljelkner, oh yes, the old banner zOnny had it's much better13:54
jelkneri told zOnny that even if replaceafill says it is not the right way to do it, if it is too hard to make it look right13:54
jelknerbut the text in the image13:54
jelkneri leave that up to you13:54
jelknerbut my requirements are that the text look nice and stay fixed relative to the map of Virginia13:54
replaceafilljelkner, my only comment there13:55
jelknerput the text in the image13:55
replaceafilljelkner, is that zOnny should have a monitor to test the resolution you want13:55
replaceafilljelkner, when he's developing13:55
replaceafilljelkner, we all should, but he's our designer13:55
replaceafilljelkner, if you want the site to look good on 2600x1600 px13:55
replaceafilljelkner, we need a way to test that13:55
replaceafilljelkner, anyway13:56
replaceafilljelkner, change anything at will13:56
replaceafilljelkner, it's not my code or my way of doing things anymore13:56
jelknerokie dokie13:56
replaceafilljelkner, it's ours13:56
jelkneri don't understand what you just said13:56
replaceafilljelkner, last week i was like a dictator, trying to keep zOnny and mr_german inbounds13:57
replaceafilljelkner, not giving them enough space on purpose13:57
replaceafilljelkner, that was "my" way of doing things at that point13:57
jelkneryou need to get them on the same page13:57
jelkneri think for now, that is a good approach13:57
replaceafilljelkner, now that the themes are in production13:57
jelknerthe day will come when they are confident to challenge you13:57
jelknerwe aren't there yet13:57
replaceafilljelkner, we adjust them according to the customer, not me13:57
jelknerbut only you have the wisdom to estimate the cost13:58
jelknerthat's the most important thing to keep in mind13:58
jelknerit will always be about trade offs13:58
replaceafilljelkner, sure, just take into account i'm a developer, not a user13:58
replaceafilljelkner, you and me see things differently because of that13:58
jelknerlike you've said many times, "it's software, we can do it"13:58
jelknerbut we need to give the customer some feel for the cost13:58
replaceafilljelkner, agree13:59
jelknerso my responsibility is to communicate needs / wants clearly13:59
jelkneryour responsibility is to estimate costs and deliver pretty close to your estimates13:59
replaceafilljelkner, a process we haven't been following much14:00
jelknerwe need to follow that more close14:00
replaceafilljelkner, yes14:00
jelkneror we can't effectively bill customers14:00
jelknerwe've talked about this a lot14:00
replaceafilljelkner, now with this base theme decision i think more things will fall in place14:01
jelknerwe won't really learn to do it until we have paying customers14:01
replaceafilljelkner, zOnny will be able to estimate better too14:01
jelknerok, lelkneralfaro wants to talk to me14:01
replaceafilljelkner, ok14:01
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, I just saw what you said about mr_german and the change requests. I'm confused, we are doing the site change over to tendenci correct? Not just making the changes she requested14:01
jelknernot me, replaceafill, you14:01
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, i asked mr_german to read those docs first14:01
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, and mark what's possible with the cms and what's not14:02
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, some things like layout of the issues page14:02
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, it's not straight forward14:02
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, in that part i was telling mr_german *i* would like to experiment14:03
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, with a new template14:03
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, he already knows how to do it14:03
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, it's not necessary for us to do it14:03
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, we can just tell Stephanie "this is too hard" or something14:03
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, or provide alternative layouts14:03
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, remember that we've done just a couple of pages currently with the new layout14:04
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, does any of this make sens?14:05
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, i think so14:05
replaceafillmr_german, you around?14:06
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, what would we tell Stephanie is too hard14:06
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, that's the one part that I'm confused on14:06
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, let me look for the example i'm thinking of14:06
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, and the new layout is tendenci 2018 correct?14:06
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, it's possible I'm a bit behind on the tech developments14:06
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, from now on we call it nova base theem14:07
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, theme*14:07
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, okay cool14:07
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, but yes, it's a rip off of the 2018 theme :)14:07
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, understood14:07
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, "If possible, if we could get a widget that pulls in the bills Lee has co-patroned and patroned from LIS ( that would be amazing. "14:08
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, that's a hard no from me14:08
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, that would be*14:08
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, but i think it's mr_german decision now14:08
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, "I’d really like to change the look of this page: Removing the icons at the top, making the boxes small or organizing them differently so the reader doesn’t have to scroll as much for basic information"14:08
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, the "making the boxes small" can't be handled with a simple page14:09
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, you can go to the demo and add a page and see how simple the resulting layout is14:10
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, okay but long story short. we will provide the new site with the nova base theme but some features we cannot provide in the way that she requested them, so we will have to communicate that to her14:10
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, correct14:10
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, that's what i asked mr_german to tell you14:10
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, what things are not possible or easy to deliver14:10
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, and what can be done with the cms14:10
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, okay got it. 14:10
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, sorry to cut you off, but we have to leave this room now14:11
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, np14:11
replaceafilllelkneralfaro, ttyl14:11
lelkneralfaroreplaceafill, cool. talk to you soon.14:11
replaceafillmr_german, CI for lee's ready14:37
replaceafillmr_german, the leecarter_dev branch points to
mr_germanreplaceafill, thanks!14:37
replaceafillmr_german, and the leecarter_prod branch points to
replaceafillmr_german, they both look the same at the moment, empty14:37
mr_germanI don't have to touch the prod14:38
mr_germanjust def14:38
replaceafillmr_german, no, you have write access in both14:38
replaceafillmr_german, it's your project!14:38
replaceafillmr_german, you should have the ability to do anything ;)14:38
mr_germanreplaceafill, ok14:39
replaceafillmr_german, use _dev to show things you're not sure about, experiment, etc14:39
replaceafillmr_german, _prod should have things Stephanie wants/needs14:39
replaceafillmr_german, and they can be sync'ed if you want also14:39
replaceafillmr_german, all i'm doing is giving you ability to publish both branches14:40
replaceafillmr_german, ok?14:40
replaceafillACTION goes home14:40
replaceafillsee you tomorrow mr_german14:40
mr_germanreplaceafill, see you14:41
