jelknerGFbot, so good to see you this early morn ;-)16:00
lelkneralfarogood morning16:00
abuchholzgood afternoon16:00
GFbotjelkner ;)16:00
inana_16ACTION waiting for everyone to say hi16:00
aminaGood morning!16:00
inana_16Okay let's start...16:01
inana_16First item: Our wiki is not that useful for documentation (see
jelknerok, i'll make this quick16:01
jelknerubuntourist, as is totally appropriate16:01
jelkneris often asking me to document16:02
jelkneri want to comply16:02
jelknerand the wiki should be the place to do that16:02
jelknerbut it doesn't support tech docs well16:02
jelknerwe should fix that16:02
jelknercase in point16:02
ubuntouristI forget: Public vs. private implemented?16:02
jelknerhere is what i tried to do on our wiki:
ubuntouristIIRC, the answer is still "no" which matches my experience.16:03
jelknerwhen it looked so unreadable i stopped16:03
jelknerhere is it on The Blog:
jelknerwhere it looks just the way i want it.16:03
jelknerlet's get our wiki to support tech docs16:04
jelknerACTION done16:04
inana_16Thanks jelkner16:04
ubuntouristWhen I document, I often want to share my documentation beyond members.16:04
ubuntouristACTION is done.16:05
inana_16Next item: Make LitteBrother post agenda to the IRClogs.16:06
ubuntouristI'll file it as a feature request, but since jelkner just got finished making a feature request here, I don't feel too bad about adding it to the agenda.16:06
ubuntouristParticularly, since it's so germane to IRC meetings. ;-)16:07
ubuntouristNot much to say about it beyond the agenda item itself.16:07
ubuntouristACTION is done.16:07
jelknerubuntourist, we need this, so thanks16:07
jelknerour irclogs are our minutes16:08
jelknerthe agenda should be at the top16:08
jelknerACTION done16:08
inana_16next item: update our website16:08
ubuntourist(Actually, I was going to look at the code and see if I wanted to fix it rather than issue a feature request.) 16:08
ubuntouristACTION is REALLY done. ;-)16:08
inana_16regarding this I started to take some screenshots in order to file some issues16:09
jelknerthis is a request for inana_16 lelkneralfaro zOnny GFbot mostly16:09
jelknerbut since our website is our main marketing tool16:09
jelknerwe need to keep it up to date16:09
jelknerneeds to have our new members16:09
jelknerour new partners16:09
jelknerour new portfolio apps well featured16:09
jelknerACTION done16:09
ubuntouristMaybe self-controlled member pages...16:10
inana_16I think is a good idea that GFbot can help me code, zOnny to understand some dev stuff and concepts that we are going to market and lelkneralfaro to make some decisions about that16:10
inana_16BTW lelkneralfaro need a picture of you, I already have one we can see if you agreed on using that for the website16:11
ubuntouristFor example, a page where I could advertise myself and my projects -- such as they aren't, 16:11
jelknerubuntourist, abuchholz and zOnny are working on articles16:11
lelkneralfaroinana_16, okay16:11
jelknerwhich would be good for that16:11
ubuntouristand others could do the same. But to avoid craziness, maybe just ONE page per member and the member can then link to external sites.16:12
ubuntouristjelkner, That's a different animal.16:12
inana_16like a bio? ubuntourist 16:12
inana_16I mean bio page?16:12
ubuntouristinana_16, That's more like what I'm thinking, yes. Bio / resume / CV.16:12
ubuntouristACTION is done16:13
inana_16it could be something as a profile like this ? 16:13
inana_16ACTION thinking16:14
ubuntouristinana_16, yeah that's basically what I'm thinking of. People click on the mini-profile on the main page and it takes them to the individual's page.16:14
ubuntouristinana_16, Of course that may not scale well for huge groups. 16:15
lelkneralfaro!remind Reset Password for novaweb site not working for me16:15
"Reset Password for novaweb site not working for me" added to message queue16:15
inana_16Ok, next item: Quick update on finances16:16

SITarabutaLittleBrother has quit and gave up ;-)23:38
SITarabutaBut he came back!23:39
ubuntouristSITarabuta, that's me breaking and then unbreaking it.23:41
SITarabutaAhh I see, ubuntourist ! Good to know. I thought he was hunted o_O23:42
ubuntouristSITarabuta, and the breaking was stupid too. Shows what I get for not reading carefully.23:42
ubuntouristSITarabuta, now I'm attempting to proceed much more cautiously -- but may give up.23:43
SITarabutaubuntourist, I prefer not to read at all ;-) I just dig in and start changing stuff; then it breaks; then I try to restore the backup which I realize doesn't exist; then I start from scratch.23:44
SITarabutaubuntourist, is it the remind in the log that you are working on?23:44
ubuntouristjelkner talks about the beauty of abstraction. I think it's the ugly of obfuscation.23:44
SITarabutaIndeed! And that is why I tell abuchholz how much I hate generic views. BURN THEM TO HELL!23:45
ubuntouristSITarabuta, yeah. And in the "abstraction" stuff is handed to "handler" which hands it to "process". So, I'm going to add a23:46
ubuntouristSITarabuta, "def do()" and a "def action()" and a "def verb()" because abstraction is sooo helpful.23:46
ubuntourist"if subject == noun: predicate = verb()" ;-)23:47
SITarabutaubuntourist, thank you!!23:48
SITarabutaIt's fun when instead of a simple "def post()", you have to do "def get_context_data()", "def form_valid()", "def get_form()", "def get_template()"... WHY!? It's like Agile23:49
SITarabutamakes me commit homicide23:49
ubuntouristSo. I was looking for "write" or "put" because, you know, I want to find out how data gets written to the log files. But no. Worse yet, there's "log", "logging" and "logger" in the code and what they mean changes depending on the phase of the moon, I think.23:51
ubuntouristsometimes "log" refers reading from remind.log. Sometimes it refers to writing to "/logs/*" and sometimes it refers to debugging messages from the Python logging module.23:52
SITarabutaYep, been there. Preferred not to touch it. I was too scared23:53
SITarabutaFor simple scripts / programs like this, it is more of a hassle to "obfuscate" stuff agway ;-). Why can't they just use file.write()23:54
ubuntouristSITarabuta, I should have been scared. Instead I was stupid. Sorcerer's apprentice: I ended up with a 1000-line agenda for a few minutes.23:54
SITarabutaOhhhh boy.. That must've hurt23:55
ubuntourist(I intentionally set the cron to fire every minute for testing. But it didn't seem to be doing anything. I kept looking in the logs/ directory to see23:56
ubuntouristif something was changing. Finally it crashed and when I looked I see "oh. I've been 'logging' to remind.log.") But, I had made a backup before doing that. So, not too serious.23:58
ubuntouristIf I'd read a bit more carefully, I would have seen that's what I was writing to. I just was thinking that "log" meant "log". Silly me.23:59
