IRC log of #schooltool for Friday, 2014-10-10

th1ahow's it going mobert?00:17
mobertHey th1a, I sent you a couple of emails00:48
mobertI followed the ark-book instructions to set up data replication to the central server, and I got it working.00:49
mobertBut something odd happened: the SchoolTool interface on both the school server and the central server isn't loading its CSS properly for pages accessed over port 7080.00:50
mobertThe page header contains the appropriate <style /> tags, but the interface is using only the browser's styles. It still works fine, it just looks awfully 1996. This also makes fancier layouts like the calendar difficult to navigate.00:52
mobertThis doesn't affect port 8000, so the Dashboard on the central server loads all CSS appropriately.00:53
mobertI tried to duplicate the CSS problem with Firefox, but everything looks fine in that browser. I only see the problem when I use Chrome.00:54
mobertI'm about to step out for a short health walk, but I'll be back soon.00:57

th1aHi replaceafill.17:30
replaceafillhey th1a17:30
th1aHow is your grandmother doing?17:30
replaceafillso so17:31
replaceafillmy mother is taking her to the doctor today for a check17:31
th1aSo I got an inquiry yesterday from this guy in Africa who I've been exchanging emails with.17:33
th1aA small vendor, essentially,17:33
th1aBut he asked yesterday about the CuBox.17:33
th1aIt is a little ARM device.17:33
th1aThe $130 version now has 2g ram and an eSATA port.17:34
th1aThat would be a good SchoolTool box I think.17:34
th1aI'm probably going to pre-order the v2 of that which is due in a month at Newegg.17:35
replaceafillis it better to have an esata port than an integrated SD card?17:35
th1aIn the meantime, I've dusted off my Pandaboard to see how 2.8 works on it.17:36
th1aThe integrated SD card has terrible performance for a database.17:36
th1aYou'd at least want eSATA as an upgrade.17:37
th1aI put my eSATA SSD in my desktop though.17:37
th1aIts got /usr on it.17:37
th1aFast boots!17:38
replaceafilli stopped splitting partitioning my installations since a long time ago :)17:38
replaceafillsince i started using ubuntu i guess17:39
th1aWell, I had too, but it was a small SSD.17:39
th1aI can't put /home on it.17:39
th1aIs there any particular error log we need for report bugs?17:40
replaceafilli think we have to ask for the whole thing:17:40
replaceafillcelery, paste, error17:40
replaceafillusually paste and error have similar information17:40
replaceafillbut celery is needed for cryptic "Ticket number..." kind of reports17:41
th1aOK.  We definitely need it for those.17:42
th1aHow are the reports coming?17:43
replaceafillgood, i started Anthony's report17:44
replaceafillschooltool.encinitas is finished17:44
replaceafill(not packaged yet though)17:44
replaceafilli think we're ok for a Monday release17:45
replaceafillwith everything17:45
replaceafillcore, gradebook, journal and the new encinitas17:45
th1aOK, cool.17:46
replaceafillon the bugs reported today17:46
replaceafilli think we should recommend Jeremy to upgrade to 2.8.2 when it's ready17:47
th1aOf course.17:47
replaceafillit fixes that 'util' bug17:47
replaceafilland we need more info (celery log probably) from Gideon17:47
replaceafillso, Matt probably discovered an styling issue with Chrome?17:48
th1aUh... yes?17:49
replaceafilli should probably start using Chrome for development17:49
th1aWell, it is what I use.17:49
th1aI'm not sure.17:49
replaceafillbut you don't see it?17:49
th1aI suspect it has something to do with the central server or something.17:51
th1aI mean, it certainly doesn't happen every time you use SchoolTool.17:52
th1aI kind of remember something like that happening.17:52
th1aDon't worry about it for now.17:52
replaceafillah ok17:52
th1aHe might just need to clear his cache for some reason.17:53
replaceafillquestion on the journal export for Anthony17:54
replaceafillwe're using the section title for the sheet label, right?17:55
replaceafilllike "SectionATitle-homeroom" etc17:55
replaceafillbut those labels have limit17:55
replaceafilli think it's 32 or 64 chars17:55
replaceafilli was thinking, is it ok if i insert the section title in the first row of the sheet?17:56
th1aWell, probably for starters you should use the ID.17:56
th1aBut yes, put the title in the first row.17:56
th1aAnd truncate the sheet names so they don't throw an error.17:56
replaceafillhhmm not sure about IDs for UI created sections17:56
replaceafillthey're just 1, 2, 3, 4,17:57
replaceafillok, that's it from me17:57
replaceafilli may bug you during the weekend with a sample or something ;)17:58
th1aOK.  You can ping me on hangouts if I'm out of it.17:59
replaceafillah ok17:59
th1aThanks replaceafill.18:01
replaceafillthanks th1a18:03
