replaceafillhey th1a18:32
th1ahey replaceafill18:32
replaceafilli need to tell xchat to get into #schooltool automatically...18:32
replaceafilli have it open since 9:00 am...18:33
th1aThat's two minutes of my life I'll never get back.18:33
replaceafillsorry th1a i'll make it up to you ;)18:33
th1aSurprising that there's something I've preset that you haven't.18:33
replaceafillit's because it doesn't wait for hiding your IP iirc18:34
replaceafillsaw the fees thread?18:34
replaceafillcheck the screenshots i sent this morning18:35
th1aYes, ok...18:35
replaceafillso we can discuss how to make that "year based"18:35
replaceafilli don't understand what Fran means in her last email though18:35
replaceafillabout the wipe button18:35
th1aDon't worry about that...18:36
th1aWe don't need a workaround here.18:36
th1aI mean, maybe it suggests an entirely different state.18:36
th1aMy only concern is that it be considered a feature and not a bug.18:37
th1aI guess what Fran's saying is being able to write off unpaid debts at a certain point.18:38
th1aThat's a new business process.18:38
replaceafillreminds me of a Seinfeld episode...18:39
replaceafillwhat's write off?18:39
replaceafillto forgive money?18:39
th1aYeah, that's the actual term.18:39
replaceafilllike "i'll let you not to pay me this"?18:39
th1aIn particular in an institutional context.18:40
replaceafillFran suggests adding it as a credit?18:40
replaceafillbut something that can be tracked i think18:40
th1a"Similarly, banks write off bad debt that is declared non collectable (such as a loan on a defunct business, or a credit card due that is in default), removing it from their balance sheets. "18:40
th1aNot crediting it, and not deleting it.18:41
th1aYeah, that's definitely a new feature then.18:41
th1aAlso why it didn't quite make sense to us.18:41
replaceafillwe also have an issue in the add debit view18:43
replaceafillthat shows only the active year fees18:43
replaceafillbut it seems like that wasn't that important to Fran18:43
replaceafilli guess we can wait on discussing that new feature with her before deciding how to re-structure the accordion18:46
th1aThat does need another option though since you may be trying to set up next year while the current year is active.18:46
replaceafillyear tabs?18:46
replaceafilli mean, year tabs in the add credit view18:46
replaceafilltertiary navigation18:46
th1aWithin the slider?18:48
replaceafillin the separate view18:48
replaceafillto add debits18:49
replaceafillthe second screenshot in my email18:49
th1aOK. yes.18:49
replaceafillso, i guess i should work on the estimates today18:51
replaceafillthat seems more important to her than the old bugs18:51
th1aYeah, I'd say.18:52
* replaceafill done18:53
th1aGenerally speaking -- we need to shift away from rushing to fix things if we're going to be talking to Fran.18:53
th1aOK, I'll get to the bank today.18:53
th1aPaper's basically done.18:53
replaceafilltalking as in meeting with her?18:53
replaceafillgot it18:54
th1aShe's more concerned with making decisions than us getting something done a day earlier.18:54
th1aOK.  Thanks replaceafill.18:55
replaceafillkk, thanks th1a18:55
th1areplaceafill:  Why we use .debs ;-)
replaceafillah yes20:37
replaceafilli read that20:37
th1aPretty funny.20:38
th1aStupid too... there is no reason for people to get upset about traditional trademark law.20:39
