replaceafillit'd developed by a canadian company called arterfactual systems11:07
replaceafilland it's going very well so far11:08

nrcernanice to read that replaceafill 11:10
replaceafillnrcerna, move on to next item?11:11
nrcernasecond item on the agenda, ask replaceafill about Unify letsencrypt email notifications11:11
replaceafillah sure11:11
replaceafillwe're missing some renewal notifications about our ssl certificates11:12
replaceafill*i* missed one last week in AEA11:12
replaceafillso i was thinking of creating a new mailbox in webfaction11:12
replaceafillwhich developers or anybody could "subscribe"11:12
replaceafilllike our info@ or support@ addresses11:13
mjsir911admin@ would work well, no?11:13
replaceafillmjsir911, i'd like something specific for letsencrypt11:13
replaceafillletsencrypt@ ?11:13
ubuntouristmjsir911, +111:14
replaceafilland then we need to update all the certs to use the new address11:14
replaceafilli'll try to work on that today11:14
replaceafilli think that's it on this item?11:15
nrcernathank you for the info replaceafill, next item ask about Share recent VEA PAC story and how it relates to Libre Organize to jelkner 11:15
jelknerok, i'll make it quick11:15
jelkneri got a phone call from the VEA-PAC chair in Richmond11:16
jelknerthey wanted our local pac (political action committee) to make a decision on a candidate endorsement11:16
jelknerand gave only a few days to do it.11:16
jelknersince we are so small, we were able to do it the old fashioned way11:17
jelknerbut it wouldn't scale unless we had something like libreorganize11:17
jelknerso yet another example of the utility of that once we get it working11:17
jelknerACTION done11:17
nrcernathank you jelkner, last item Ask Diego about 1099s11:18
replaceafillnrcerna, second to last item ;)11:18
nrcernaups my bad11:18
DG123Alright, I this item has to do a little more with w-9's for us11:19
jelknerit's w-4's vs. w-9's, right?11:19
jelkneri never understood this11:19
jelknerwhich is better, etc.11:19
DG123After an email conversation with one of our clients, I think it's best for NWD's credibility and customer satisfaction if we send w-9's to customers11:20
DG123This is something a little different from w-411:20
ubuntourist(For the unenlightened: Income tax forms, BTW.)11:20
DG123w-9 is used to give tax info to a client so that they can file with the IRS that they paid us for services11:21
DG123Using a 109911:21
jelknerDG123, can we have a work session on this next sunday?11:21
jelkneryou'll have to do one for joe youcha, right?11:21
DG123So to wrap it up, I'm just letting everyone know that every time we finish working for a client, we should send a w-911:21
jelknerand that is due at the end of january11:21
jelknerso go ahead11:22
DG123jelkner, yes I did the JoeYoucha one on Friday11:22
jelknerbut can we spend real time on this next sunday, DG123?11:22
jelknerwe need more than just you to understand what is happening11:22
DG123jelkner, yes11:22
jelknerand the other person needs to be me, i guess11:22
DG123Ok, that sounds good11:23
jelknerDG123, i'll put a reminder on our agenda in a few hours11:23
nrcernathanks for the info DG123, next item, We need a true sales representative11:24
jelkneri'd like to thank ubuntourist for bringing this up, but we unfortunately are not in a position to do anything about it11:24
jelknertrue though it certainly is11:24
ubuntouristSo. I was speaking with zOnny about the business cards and he said now jelkner said to add a phone number.11:25
jelknerubuntourist, zOnny is doing his own marketing11:25
jelknermuch as chris hedrick did the 2 years he was nova web development11:25
jelknerhe needs his personal phone number on his cards11:25
jelknerso folks can contact him11:26
jelknerthat, for now, is the only way this can work11:26
zOnnyjelkner: ok11:26
jelknerwe have a friend in maryland asking for cards11:26
jelknerwe can't send them to joseline with no phone number on them11:27
jelknerat this point, i would say only zOnny needs that11:27
jelknerlater, of course, ubuntourist, we need to imagine ourselves in an office of our own, with a proper sales manager and a proper phone number11:28
jelknerACTION imagines my dreaming causing ubuntourist to have sleepless nights ;-)11:28
jelknerbut right now we need to help keep zOnny afloat11:29
jelknerACTION done11:29
ubuntouristOK. I will redesign the card...11:30
