SITarabutathat is about it11:06
jelknerSITarabuta is driving us toward success11:06
jelknerthe least we can do it to try to keep up with him! ;-)11:06
ubuntouristSince our e-mail is webfaction and google, I'm missing the connection...11:07
GFbotdo we still using webfaction at this point :D?11:08
ubuntourist(And we're also on Linode.)11:08
SITarabutazoho would be our savior11:08
SITarabutafor hosting11:08
GFbotSITarabuta 1+11:08
SITarabutathe DNS11:08
SITarabutawas just moved11:08
SITarabutafrom to namecheap11:09
SITarabutaand everything else11:09
SITarabutabut the actual hosting is still webfaction11:09
SITarabutathat is about it really11:09
ubuntouristjelkner, So. Yes: I'm aware of what SITarabuta has done with email. Nada. He's done lots of other stuff of importance11:09
jelknertouche, ubuntourist 11:10
jelknerweekends are the only time i can keep up with all this11:10
jelknerwe are discussing alternatives11:11
jelknerlet's do that after the meeting11:11
jelknernext item11:11
jelknerwith zOnny and SITarabuta both here11:12
jelknerwe can have a conversation about choices11:12
jelknerand make one11:12
jelknerafter the meeting11:12
ubuntouristSITarabuta, I'll probably want credentials to if I'm going to go poking around with switching e-mails.11:12
jelknerwe are off tierranet11:12
jelknerubuntourist, no longer needed11:12
SITarabutai used jelkner credentials11:12
SITarabutato take verything off11:13
ubuntouristOops. Sorry. I mean namecheap.11:13
jelknerubuntourist, you create your own account on namecheap11:13
jelknerand we give you privileges11:13
SITarabutaso i have my own account, but the rest of NWD shared one account11:13
SITarabutabut that is bad11:13
jelknerthat's why we like it so much11:13
SITarabutaso really we need an account per user11:13
jelknermjsir911, got us on that for that reason11:13
ubuntouristI have a namecheap account.11:13
ubuntouristWhat I'm asking about: Does namecheap offer mailboxes? Do we do the same kind of aliasing of @novawebdevelopment.org11:15
zOnnyubuntourist: I gave it to you already11:15
SITarabutano no ubuntourist 11:15
ubuntouristto Zoho 11:15
SITarabutaubuntourist, is just DNS11:15
SITarabutaand domain purchasing11:15
SITarabutaand configuring a domain11:15
SITarabutato ring to an ip or server11:15
ubuntouristSo. getting addresses to use Zoho... is done how / where?11:16
SITarabutawe didn't yet11:16
SITarabutawe are thinking about it11:16
jelknerubuntourist, can we discuss this after the meeting?11:17
ubuntouristACTION is ... done? for now then...11:17
jelknernext item11:17
jelknerwe need to move our own website to LOv0.211:17
jelknerthat is top priority11:17
jelknersince we can't move forward with an agile process without doing that11:17
jelknerwe have a minimal viable product11:17
jelknerwe need to start using it11:18
SITarabutathat is in the works on the backend side: i began setting up automation and continous integration on GitLab11:18
*** abuchholz has joined #novawebdev11:18
SITarabutaso nobody should just manually git pull and deploy11:18
jelknerubuntourist's user story is the one that drove development11:18
SITarabutawe should do that automatically11:18
jelknerwe have events11:18
jelknerand a calendar11:18
jelknerso let's get that started today11:18
jelknerubuntourist, if you could help with Zoho, that would be awesome11:18
jelkneri'll talk to you about that11:18
jelknerubuntourist, now they are saying bluehost is better11:20
jelknerubuntourist, can you and i talk after?11:20
*** abuchholz has joined #novawebdev11:20
jelknerlast item is ubuntourist 11:20
jelkneryes, we are wasting money11:20
GFbota lot11:21
jelknerthe main problem is we aren't billing11:21
jelknerzOnny gave me a horror story this morning11:21
SITarabutaand we need to move multiples sites on the same machine11:21
SITarabuta*pretty please*?11:21
jelknerwe have a customer who is upset with us *for not billing*!!!!!!11:21
jelknerthey keep good books11:21
SITarabutaand we don't11:21
jelknertheir books say they should be expecting an invoice11:22
SITarabutaand our inexistent books don't say that11:22
jelknerthey can't balance their books until they pay11:22
jelknerthey cant' pay until we bill11:22
SITarabutawe are balanced because we have no books11:22
ubuntouristjelkner, I see Mr. Flint still has a virtual box, among other questionable boxes on Linode.11:22
GFbotjelkner should talk with nrcerna about that?11:22
jelknerGFbot, i talk to her every day11:22
jelknerit is hard for her11:23
jelknerthis isn't her forte11:23
GFboti know11:23
jelknerbut she's the only one who can do it right now11:23
SITarabutareally ubuntourist 11:23
SITarabutaI didn't know which ones those were11:23
jelknerok, anything else before we get down to work?11:23
SITarabutaOne thing11:23
SITarabutabefore we move to multiples sites per machine11:24
SITarabutawe could at least downgrade from 2GB boxes to Nanodes 1GB11:24
SITarabutabecause the websites11:24
SITarabutadon't have much traffic11:24
SITarabutait is half the price11:24
SITarabutaACTION done11:24

jelknerwhile we have access to zOnny 11:32
jelknerwe should clean up some of those11:32

GFbotjelkner sounds good11:32
jelknerespecially when we don't bill!11:32
GFbotjelkner i agree with SITarabuta11:32
ubuntouristSome may have been temporary experiments that are already gone: I note two with "mail" in the name, which I assume were11:33
GFbotthere's a site using 4GB ram 20$  each month11:33
ubuntouristattempts to run our own mailserver last month.11:33

*** SITarabuta_ has joined #novawebdev11:40
ubuntouristI'm sleep deprived, but I thought less than 30 minutes ago, Zoho was the go-to.11:41
jelknerubuntourist, i'm feeling zoho too11:41
jelknerbut it is more expensive11:41
GFbotACTION waiting for jelkner11:41
