th1ahi replaceafill.19:56
replaceafilli'm glad to say that we're done19:57
replaceafillwell, i need to merge and package everything19:57
replaceafillbut i finished the two last reports19:57
th1aDid you work late last night?19:57
replaceafillup until 3 am or so19:57
replaceafilldid we tell Fran how to hide course worksheets?19:58
replaceafillbecause two of the issues she mentions in her email today are about those19:59
replaceafilli checked them yesterday19:59
replaceafillDeleting worksheets and Assessment19:59
th1aDo you just do that from the course?19:59
replaceafilldeployed worksheets link iirc20:00
th1aShe may need a reminder.20:00
replaceafillfees wasn't at issue apparently20:00
replaceafilland the other one i haven't seen it yet20:00
replaceafillwith the 3 terms in the attendance reports20:00
replaceafilli'll try to reproduce those20:00
replaceafillreplying Fran's email20:02
th1aTo install schooltool.rising,20:05
th1aUse the rising ppa and apt-get install schooltool.rising ?20:06
replaceafillyou need three ppas: schooltool-owners/2.8, sielibre/ark-project and sielibre/rising20:13
replaceafillthen apt-get install schooltool python-schooltool.ark python-schooltool.fee python-schooltool.rising20:14
replaceafillapt-get update in between20:14
th1aOK.  Thanks.20:14
replaceafilli've been thinking20:14
replaceafillabout the isli ppa20:14
replaceafillwe could copy everything into isli20:16
replaceafilli mean, release newer versions to ark-project and then copy to isli20:16
replaceafillthat way isli users don't need to add another ppa20:17
th1aI don't mind them having to add two ppa's if it keeps us from maintaining multiple copies of things.20:18
replaceafillyeah, that was my goal with the new ark-project ppa20:18
replaceafillhaving everything centralized20:18
replaceafilland just one package per country ppa20:19
replaceafillisli, rising and someday peas20:19
replaceafilli'll send instructions to Fran once i finished packaging20:19
replaceafillon how to add the new ppa, etc20:19
replaceafillok, that's it from me th1a20:19
th1aThanks.  Great job, replaceafill!20:20
th1aIn the meantime I've been updating Windows and Quickbooks.20:20
replaceafilldid you finish?20:20
th1aIt is a great reminder of how messed up computing is for some people.20:20
replaceafillor is still downloading?20:20
th1aWindows 7 is not happy running on a 25 gig drive.20:21
th1aActually, I think it just filled it up again trying to update.20:21
th1aQuickbooks leaves multiple 380mb versions of some CAB file lying around.20:22
th1aIt is pretty mind boggling.20:22
th1aI mean, you should be able to do your bookkeeping with a 25 gig drive, even if you can't buy a system with a 25 gig drive these days.20:23
th1aIt really should be sufficient!20:23
replaceafilli've seen those endless updates in my dad's laptop20:24
replaceafilland he keeps wondering what's happening all the time20:24
th1aI think it would be a pain in the ass for me to re-install Quickbooks on a clean system.20:24
th1aI had a hard time getting the license code the last time I reinstalled.20:25
th1aI mean, it isn't like I'm sitting here turning a crank to make it upgrade, but it is a lot of false starts!20:25
th1aAnyhow, I'm sending the folks in Sierra Leone and Suriname instructions on installing Rising as more or less a 3.0 preview and an example of customization.20:29
th1aThat's all I've got.20:29
replaceafillthanks th1a20:32
th1athanks replaceafill.20:32
th1aTake it easy this weekend!20:32
