jelknertomorrow i drive to minneapolis11:48
replaceafilljelkner, how can i help?11:48
jelknerfirstly, do we have a working email address for nea members for our revolution?11:48
jelknerif folks want to email us?11:48
jelkneri'm working on the sign-up form11:49
replaceafilljelkner, no, we only have the mailing lista members@11:49
replaceafilljelkner, let me check the email server for nea4or11:49
replaceafilljelkner, there are a few accounts but are mostly system accounts11:49
replaceafilljelkner, ams@, etc11:49
jelknerwhat would it take to get a ?11:49
jelknerthat could be forwarded to me11:50
replaceafilljelkner, creating the account is not difficult, but i have never set up forward emails11:50
replaceafilljelkner, so i'm not sure about that11:50
jelknerwhat would you recommend?11:51
replaceafilljelkner, i think the nea4or page lists your personal email anyway11:51
replaceafilljelkner, 11:51
replaceafill"Questions? Send an email to:"11:51
jelkneryes, but that is not good11:52
jelknerwe can do it if we have to11:52
replaceafilljelkner, right11:52
jelknerbut it makes us look like we don't have skills11:52
replaceafilljelkner, we have the skills to set up contact@nea4or.us11:52
replaceafilljelkner, but not for forwarding11:52
jelknerwell, how would it work?11:53
replaceafilljelkner, i'd recommend setting up contact@11:53
replaceafilljelkner, and pay attention while the convention lasts11:53
jelknerthat's fine11:53
replaceafilljelkner, i don't want to touch the email server before that11:53
jelknerhow would i check it?11:53
replaceafilljelkner, you can set up thunderbird11:53
replaceafilljelkner, or any imap client11:54
jelkneroh no11:54
jelknerlike Dany did :-( ?11:54

replaceafilljelkner, yes11:54
replaceafilljelkner, she could11:54
replaceafilljelkner, in the school computer11:54
jelknerok, let's do that11:54
replaceafilljelkner, it hasn't failed or anything11:54
replaceafilljelkner, but her personal computer is a different story11:54
jelknerif i can get it working on my laptop11:54
jelknerwe'll be ok11:54
jelkneri need to change my workflow anyway11:55
jelknerand start using thunderbird for mail11:55

*** mr_german has joined #novawebdev12:21
replaceafilljelkner, do you want me to change your personal email in the membership form to contact@?12:32
jelkneri just sent an email to rand with the paper version of the sign-up form12:35
jelkneri need his reply on whether clear will allow us to write checks to nea4or, and then i'll send to amity and yvonne12:36
jelknerbut yes, contact@nea4or.us12:36
jelkneris the email that should be listed12:36
replaceafilljelkner, could you update the "Contact Us" page?12:38
replaceafilljelkner, membership form updated12:39
replaceafilljelkner, nitpick question on the printed membership forms :)12:41
jelknerpick away12:41
replaceafilljelkner, why is "please print" in the form?12:42
jelknerso that people write legibly?12:42
replaceafilljelkner, oh12:42
jelkneri was basically copying the form rand uses for labor for or12:42
replaceafilljelkner, print means the type of letter to use?12:42
jelknersome old people still write in script12:42
replaceafilljelkner, ah got it12:42
jelkneryoung people often don't even know how to do that anymore12:43
replaceafilljelkner, i didn't know that what's called in english12:43
jelknerbut i'm old, so i remember when we did that sort of thing12:43
replaceafilljelkner, we call it "letra de carta" (script) and "letra de molde" (print)12:43
jelknerwell i could change it to letra de molde, but not everyone would understand ;-)12:44
replaceafilljelkner, it's the first time i see that expression, i noticed it in Rand's form too12:44
jelkneryes, that's what i modeled mine on12:44
jelkneri called and left rand a voice message12:45
jelknerasking him to respond to my email12:45
jelkneri have today to work12:45
jelknertomorrow i have a 11 to 12 hour drive to minneapolis12:45
jelknerso i won't get anything else done12:45
jelkneri'll get to listen to a good audio book, but that doesn't count ;-)12:46

jelknersorry to bother you again13:13
replaceafilljelkner, pong13:14
jelkner(too many interruptions destroy productivity)13:14
jelkneri have several issues i want to file13:14
jelknernot against our website13:14
jelknerbut for our cooperative13:14
replaceafilljelkner, ah ok13:14
jelknerwhere could i do that?13:14
replaceafilljelkner, we don't have a coop project to do that13:15

jelkneri'll file the issues13:15
replaceafilljelkner, yes13:16
replaceafilljelkner, hold on13:16
jelknerthanks man!13:17
replaceafilljelkner, np13:17
jelknernow one more question before we go13:17
jelknerwhat do you think of this?
jelkneri am thinking we need to explore joining a union13:18
jelknerif we are going to do work for unions, we need to be in one13:18
replaceafilljelkner, ah13:18
jelknerso knowing as i do that UE is know for being one of the most progressive, most democratic unions in my country13:18
jelknerthey are not part of the AFL-CIO since they refused to kick out communists in the 1950s13:19
jelkneri thought, let me take a look at the UE website13:19
jelknerthen i found the link i just sent you13:19
jelknerthe sad news is that cooperative didn't survive13:19
replaceafilljelkner, right13:19
replaceafilljelkner, sounds like what we're trying to do13:20
jelknerthe good news is they were both a web coop and a ue local13:20
jelknerso we could reach out to them about joining13:20
jelkneri'll file an issue for lelkneralfaro to look into this13:20
jelknerbut i wanted to run it by you first13:20
replaceafilljelkner, i can't say i fully understand what becoming a local means13:21
replaceafilljelkner, but if it helps us grow13:21
replaceafilljelkner, or get in touch with the right kind of organizations13:21
replaceafilljelkner, i'm +`13:21
jelknerwell, it will also give us the opportunity to be part of the labor movement13:22
jelknerwe will be members of labor for our revolution, for example, if we did that13:22
jelknersince UE is one of the founding members of Labor for OR13:22
replaceafilljelkner, ah13:22
jelknerokie dokie13:22
jelkneri'll file the issue, and we can talk about it later.13:23
jelkneri'm going to call louie too13:23
