th1ahi replaceafill.17:33
replaceafillhey th1a17:34
th1aOK, so we should be squared away for Fran?17:35
replaceafillwell, there's still the Sheet1 issue17:35
replaceafillbut i say we should punt on that one17:35
replaceafillfixing it "right" will take longer17:35
th1aWell, I would say I did commit to not punting -- why do we have to fix it right?17:36
replaceafillbecause a hack it's not enough17:36
th1aYou tried?17:36
replaceafillthere are too many places it's an issue17:36
th1aCan you explain in a little more detail.17:37
th1aI think we're stuck fixing it since it really annoys her.17:37
replaceafillwell yeah17:38
th1aI don't care if it is REALLY hacky if it only affects ARK.17:38
replaceafillmy point is the hack is not enough17:38
replaceafillthe hack was to "HIDE" existing sheets17:39
replaceafilland prevent new sections from gettting it17:39
replaceafillif you're committed i guess i better fix it...17:39
replaceafilli really don't care about it17:39
replaceafillbut i'll try17:39
replaceafillit's the last piece anyway17:40
th1aI'm not committed to it but we'll never hear the end of it.17:40
replaceafillthat i don't care about it17:40
replaceafillthis was never a specification17:40
th1aI said we'd fix it.17:40
replaceafillif we'd have time17:41
th1aCan't you just not worry about creating it and just hide it?17:41
th1aNo, I said we'd fix it but it might not be by the deadline.17:41
replaceafillah ok17:41
th1aI mean, we could punt it a week or something but there's no point in that.17:41
replaceafillso it can take more than tomorrow?17:41
replaceafillgot it now17:41
replaceafillso, the annoying part about fixing it, it's that we have a lot of places from where the worksheets are accessed/iterated over17:42
replaceafillthere are 3 places from where the Sheet1 can be created17:42
replaceafill2 are views17:42
replaceafill1 is the gradebook adapter itself17:42
replaceafillso if you want to override that just for ARK you need a lot of new components17:43
th1aWhat if you only hide it from the main gradebook view?17:43
replaceafillyou can't17:43
th1aJust throw in a check that runs every time?17:43
replaceafillit's in the gradebook adapter __init__ method17:43
replaceafilli mean17:44
replaceafilli'd better like to spend some time removing all those scattered accesses17:44
th1aOK, well... whatever you can live with.  ;-)17:45
replaceafilli'll give it a shot and try to have it ready by tomorrow, but i won't sweat it17:46
replaceafillsorry about that17:46
replaceafillthe rest of the changes are packaged17:46
replaceafilli guess i'm just tired or something17:46
th1aIt is ok -- it is an annoying pain in the ass.17:47
replaceafillthat's it from me17:48
th1aOK.  VA has some annoying forms to fill out, especially if you want to register as a vendor online.17:49
replaceafilldo you think we should assume Uganda has important data in Sheet1's17:50
replaceafilli'm thinking of making them completely hidden17:50
replaceafilli mean, no way to unhide, and not being listed anywhere17:51
replaceafillor should i ask Fran?17:51
th1aOh, you could probably just completely hide them.17:51
th1aShe clearly does not WANT anyone using them.17:52
replaceafillah ok17:52
replaceafilli'll hide them then17:52
th1aI'll make an invoice for her.17:53
th1aI'd better double check if they've paid us the last two.  I don't think so yet.17:55
th1aNo, not yet.17:56
th1aOK, I'll send that in.17:56
th1aI'll get back to the virtual school guys -- I'm not sure whose turn it is in our conversation right now.17:56
th1aWe need to know more about their mixed term reporting though.17:57
th1aAlso, I'm doing most of the paper writing this week.17:59
th1aFeeling a bit less stressful the third time though.17:59
replaceafillhad a good interview?18:00
th1aYeah, I think it went ok.  I mean, it was a very friendly interview in terms of just trying to get the word out about a very pro-labor and environment initiative.18:01
th1aActually the only thing I feel like I don't know how to do is ask more off-topic questions.18:02
replaceafilli've been thinking about your paper these past 2 weeks18:02
th1aLike, once I've got what I need for the article, I'm not really thinking about anything else.18:02
replaceafilli live next to the social security offices18:02
th1aRight now there are pdf's online, btw.18:02
replaceafilland the union has closed the office for almost 2 weeks now18:02
th1aOur website is a nightmare we've been trying to replace.18:03
replaceafillthey're in strike18:03
th1aOh, well, our unions are all too weak for that kind of thing.18:03
replaceafill$15/h :O18:05
th1aToo much?18:06
replaceafillcompared to sv, a lot :(18:06
replaceafillPhoto: Tom Hoffman!18:06
