ubuntouristjelkner, 16:19
ubuntouristjelkner, See recent e-mail. The proverbial ball is in your proverbial court.16:20
replaceafillubuntourist, have 5 mins for a quick question?16:25
ubuntouristjelkner, (Signature needed.)16:25
ubuntouristreplaceafill, Yeah.16:25
replaceafillubuntourist, eeh, jelkner left...16:25
replaceafillubuntourist, quote from Senda this afternoon:16:26
replaceafill"I am done for the day! I just submitted the report to the published! Yahoooo"16:26
ubuntouristreplaceafill, Bravo!16:26
replaceafillubuntourist, and my question is: what happens next?16:26
replaceafillubuntourist, i guess this is the rush to the deadline16:26
replaceafillubuntourist, are there any post deadline tasks involved?16:26
replaceafillubuntourist, as i said in my email, i have a few, but wanted to know how much rush to expect now16:27
ubuntouristreplaceafill, That's up to Senda, Chip and monies available: There may be a round of "Oops, fix this or that"16:27
replaceafillubuntourist, oh ok16:27
replaceafillubuntourist, sure, makes sense16:27
ubuntouristreplaceafill, but the basic task of the year sounds finished.16:27
replaceafillubuntourist, great, glad to know16:28
replaceafillubuntourist, that's all i had16:28
replaceafillubuntourist, thank you16:28
replaceafillubuntourist, hope your work is going well16:28
ubuntouristreplaceafill, My hope used to be that the online searchable version of the book was also in pretty good shape, but I don't care as much any more, and if Senda and Chip don't care...16:28
ubuntouristreplaceafill, then I guess you're in "under budget".16:28
replaceafillubuntourist, she does16:28
replaceafillubuntourist, that's what she asked me about today16:29
replaceafillubuntourist, by online searchable you mean your system, right?16:29
replaceafillubuntourist, it's the only "public face" i know16:29
ubuntouristreplaceafill, Ah. Well, the pressure is off to rush things. Yes, my system. That which the "unwashed masses" who cannot login to anything will see.16:30
replaceafillubuntourist, yes, that's what i'm taking care of right now16:31
ubuntouristI haven't looked at the thing at all: Still using the older Django, due to messed-up RPM, yes? Or were you able to pipenv (or something else) to bring it into the present?16:32
replaceafillubuntourist, no, i decided no to even try16:33
ubuntouristreplaceafill, wise. ;-)16:33
replaceafillubuntourist, if they're replacing it by next year it seemed pointless16:33
replaceafillubuntourist, at this point i'm not so sure about that anymore :)16:33
ubuntouristreplaceafill, they've been saying that for a few years, but they may actually do it this time. ;-)16:33
replaceafillubuntourist, :D16:34
ubuntouristreplaceafill, When Chip mentioned several months ago that we "might" get the contract, I urged him to find the money back then so that things could be updated16:35
ubuntouristreplaceafill, before the mad crunch in September / October but alas.16:36
replaceafillubuntourist, i remember16:36
replaceafillubuntourist, i also remember Senda saying they had a company already in position to do it16:36
ubuntouristreplaceafill, So, if NOVA gets it again, it will probably be under the same circumstances and triage will be the order of the day.16:36
replaceafillubuntourist, maybe it's that i'm not busy or maybe the mindset that you prepared us for, but i haven't felt pressured16:37
replaceafillubuntourist, sure a couple of allnighters but that's it16:37
replaceafillubuntourist, and Senda has been very supportive16:37
replaceafillubuntourist, not bossy16:38
ubuntouristreplaceafill, Glad it worked out. I was thinking she'd be panicking a lot throughout the process.16:39
replaceafillubuntourist, i guess we put that fire out quickly :)16:39
ubuntouristreplaceafill, I think (a) you're probably much better at Django -- and this size / speed of project than I am and (b) you may have had a real benefit from NOT being local:16:40
replaceafillubuntourist, good point16:40
ubuntouristreplaceafill, Chip (and others) couldn't run to your office and pester you with distractions every 10 minutes.16:40
replaceafillubuntourist, lol16:41
replaceafillubuntourist, remote ftw!16:41
ubuntouristreplaceafill, He would come into my office while I was deep in code and ask me if I could run across campus to fetch some envelope or something. The man completely ruined my ability to concentrate.16:42
replaceafillubuntourist, :D16:43
ubuntouristreplaceafill, When you next find yourself in the same place as me (hopefully PyCon) I owe you at least a beer or three.16:43
replaceafillubuntourist, same here :)16:44
ubuntouristreplaceafill, BTW, we should probably thank Brian for his help too.16:44
replaceafillubuntourist, true16:44
ubuntouristreplaceafill, (I don't know if you had much to pester him with, but he was ready, willing and able.)16:45
replaceafillubuntourist, no, didn't contact him privately16:45
replaceafillubuntourist, i was able to figure out most of the drupal stuff quickly enough16:45
ubuntouristreplaceafill, Anyway, I'm at Gallaudet and Dragana will probably walk in on me any minute. 16:46
replaceafillubuntourist, kk, see you Sunday16:46
ubuntouristreplaceafill, Well, maybe I'll write to him and let him know he doesn't need to expect a call this year.16:46
replaceafillubuntourist, +1 :)16:46
ubuntouristreplaceafill, See you Sunday AM.16:46
