th1aQuestion: is "Boot-Up Manager" installed by default on Ubuntu (it is under System>Administration).19:40
th1aI can't remember if I installed it separately.19:46

ignasaelkner: write me an email if you can, I must go home now21:26
*** ignas has quit IRC21:44
th1afsufitch: pong.21:49
fsufitchth1a, given that my computer is on the school network, how would i go about opening my 7080 port so that other computers can see schooltool?21:50
th1aIs this on a more or less stock Ubuntu box?21:51
th1aSo you probably don't have a firewall running.21:53
th1aSo you should just need the IP.21:53
fsufitchdoesn't work...21:54
fsufitcheven from the local machine to itself21:54
fsufitchi need to use localhost to access it21:54
*** jstraw has joined #schooltool21:54
jstrawaelkner: update run21:54
jstrawth1a: we should add how to set the user it runs as21:58
jstrawand apache config21:58
th1aYes... if someone tells me how I can write it up.21:59
jstrawignas should be best for the user config :)21:59
jstrawI can work on ProxyPass for you21:59
fsufitchth1a, thanks :)22:19
th1afsufitch: No problem.  Now I just have to a) finish more documentation (once ignas gets years in) and b) get people to use it.22:20
fsufitchi'm actually hoping some people will look around at the other features of schooltool when they use tjtalk :)22:21
