replaceafillsorry i'm late17:40
th1ahi replaceafill.17:40
replaceafillmy X server kept dying, not sure why17:40
th1aProbably because it is the same system we used at CMU in 1986?17:41
replaceafillwayland ftw :S17:41
replaceafilli finished the small changes to the add year form17:41
th1aActually, one thing that cracks me up was that the big thing at CMU when I got there was that the school was using a distributed file system.17:41
th1aA little ahead of the curve on that one.  ;-)17:42
th1aSun workstations with the Andrew File System (AFS).17:43
replaceafilli wonder who Andrew is :)17:43
th1aGo ahead.17:43
replaceafilli'm now finishing the streams export17:43
replaceafillquick question: did you add a new blueprint for the assessment sets copying to the new year?17:43
th1aCould be Carnegie OR Mellon.17:44
th1aMaybe I didn't.17:44
replaceafilli guess i just need the title for the link17:45
replaceafillit's going in the assessment sets page for the year17:45
th1a"Copy sets from previous year" ?17:45
replaceafillunder an Actions group, right?17:46
replaceafillthat's all i need i think17:46
th1aI don't know what :S means in that context...17:46
replaceafillit's a long title ;)17:46
th1aI was going to do that blueprint, but I think I got distracted as I was thinking of the explanation of why it was necessary.17:47
th1aIt isn't like there are a bunch of things in the sidebar there.17:47
replaceafilli guess it's just to keep the add year form simple17:47
th1aI know.17:48
replaceafillso, assessment sets copying then promotion17:48
replaceafill(for today)17:48
th1aOK, with one curve ball...17:49
th1aI got the PO from Dinwiddie.17:49
th1aPurchase order.17:49
th1aSo... that's...17:49
th1aWell, akin to signing a contract.17:49
th1aLegally binding agreement to pay for a service.17:50
th1a(I had to look it up first too...)17:50
replaceafillare we getting a new vps for them?17:50
th1aAnyhow, once you get a PO out of them, getting an invoice paid should go smoothly.17:50
th1aI think we should, right?17:50
replaceafillthe more isolated those things are the better17:51
th1a2 gigs?17:51
replaceafilli'm not sure how big their current db is17:51
replaceafillalso, are we moving that?17:51
replaceafillor is this their first year?17:51
th1aThey're sending us a Data.fs.17:52
th1aUsing one of our subdomains.17:52
th1aSo I can get the server/dns/ssl cert purchased.17:52
replaceafillwe could *start* with 2 gb17:53
replaceafillsome cando reports are very intensive17:53
th1aThat is what I was thinking.17:53
replaceafillintensive as inefficient *cough* *cough*17:54
replaceafilllet me know when i should get "involved" :)17:54
th1aI'll get to it.17:54
th1aAnything else?17:55
replaceafillno, i'm done17:55
th1aOK.  Thanks replaceafill.17:55
replaceafillok, thanks th1a17:55
th1areplaceafill:  I'm working on the SSL, but it doesn't look like we'll have the Data.fs today, so no rush.19:10
replaceafillth1a, ah ok19:22
th1aOK.  Cert ordered.19:24

replaceafillhhmm i think we should have more than 512 MB for swap19:47
th1aThat was the biggest default option.20:01
th1aIf you want to copy off the cert etc. you could just start over.20:02
th1aIt isn't like I laboriously and lovingly set that up from scratch.20:02
