replaceafillor ARK adopted us...? :D17:38
replaceafillanyway, it's nice that he took the time17:39
th1aI think their adoption of us.  ;-)17:39
th1aWell, SchoolTool, that is.  ;-)17:39
replaceafillah ok17:39
th1aI have a meeting tomorrow at 10:00 with Dan Leighton -- he's the guy in England I chatted with a few months ago (very knowledgeable, knew ARK, etc.).17:40
th1aMainly I want him in on 3.0 testing once we have a branch for that.17:41
th1aBut we're not quite there yet...17:41
th1aSo I'll stall a bit...17:43
th1aHow was your weekend?17:43
replaceafillstarted messing with minecraft + python :)17:44
replaceafillshowing Camila how to build a building with a few lines of code17:45
th1aYou're ahead of me on that.17:45
th1aI'll have to google it.17:45
th1aI died without building a bed and now I can't find my house.17:45
replaceafillthere's a way to render the map17:47
replaceafilli don't remember of the top of my head17:47
th1aI spawned on a desert island and ended up running for my life for a while.17:47
replaceafillbut it's very nice17:47
replaceafilli mean, to render the world17:47
th1aYou can craft a map and compass.17:47
replaceafillreally cool17:48
replaceafilli used it to tell Marcela where to find cats17:48
th1aAh... these things are all cheating!17:48
th1aMy only problem with Minecraft is that it basically assumes you're using the internet for guidance.17:49
replaceafilltechnology th1a, adapt or die ;)17:49
replaceafillwhat do you mean?17:49
th1aI adapted to this when I was ten:
replaceafilli've heard of this game in the "ready player one" book17:50
th1aI would love to learn to write Atari 2600 code.17:50
th1aIt seems so bizarre.17:50
th1aHave you ever read about it?17:51
replaceafillatari programming? no17:51
th1aIt is crazy.
th1aBasically, it is oriented around the beam of the crt tube.17:52
th1aYou have to constantly shuffle things around to get it to draw what it is supposed to.17:53
th1aOK, do we have to discuss any Fran points further or are you just ready to get rolling?17:53
replaceafilli started on friday17:54
replaceafilli'm almost done with the "group to streams" story17:54
replaceafilljust a couple of questions17:54
th1aI guess the one thing I was going to say is that you should probably estimate the saving custom report blueprint and do it in this batch.17:54
replaceafillah ok17:56
replaceafillon Task 1.17:56
replaceafillwhere do you think is best to put the link to the view?17:56
replaceafillcurrently i've put it under the Streams view17:56
th1aThis is something that basically only should be needed THIS year.17:56
replaceafillActions: Convert groups to streams17:57
replaceafillit's all XXX ofc17:57
replaceafilland on Task 217:58
th1aConvert groups to streams is fine.17:58
replaceafilli should know our features better17:58
replaceafillor maybe we should track them better17:58
replaceafillin the blueprint i wrote:17:58
replaceafill"when a student is added to the stream they should get the listed fees"17:58
replaceafilland it seems like we never did that17:59
replaceafilli haven't check the old threads17:59
replaceafillbut i remember us talking about not setting up subscribers for this17:59
th1aWe discussed NOT doing that?17:59
replaceafillwe were going to start small irc18:00
replaceafillgroup fees, that is18:00
th1aOh, well, ok, I can imagine that, I suppose.18:00
replaceafillquestion is: should we add that?18:00
th1aGiven the time constraints...18:00
th1aI would say so.18:00
replaceafillmakes sense to me18:00
replaceafillok, so 1 and 2 are done (except for the subscriber part)18:01
replaceafill3 almost done18:01
replaceafillhopefully i'll have a demo for Fran tonight18:01
replaceafilland will estimate the save reports story18:01
replaceafilland the graphics reports one18:02
th1aOK.  Cool.18:02
replaceafilli guess that's it from me18:02
replaceafillmy goal is to finish this today18:02
replaceafilland tomorrow check fran remaining issues18:02
replaceafilland work on the proximity stuff18:03
th1aThis is paper-writing week for me as well.18:03
