th1ahi replaceafill.18:55
replaceafillhey th1a18:55
th1aHow's it going?18:56
replaceafillfinished peas changes18:56
replaceafillnot packaged yet18:56
replaceafillmerging the rising changes18:56
th1aDoes the Rachel/Fran email thread make sense to you?18:57
replaceafilli haven't paid attention to that18:57
replaceafillit seems like the report cards are fran's priority for now18:58
replaceafillnot so much those bugs18:58
th1aBetter to stay focused.18:58
th1aI encourage it!18:58
th1aSo as I was walking into this conference this morning I was walking behind the RI director of labor and training, and he was talking to someone about how much the data system for this new job training program was fucking things up.18:59
th1aLike "now we can at least get the data in, but we can't get it out!"19:00
th1aJust for reference, when I keep telling you we're doing better than you think, compared to the (probably much, MUCH more expensive) alternatives.19:01
th1aI don't have anything else to add to your plate.19:02
replaceafillthank God!19:02
th1aIf I was a busybody we would have driven each other away years ago.19:03
th1aOK, thanks replaceafill.19:03
replaceafillok, thanks th1a19:03

replaceafillth1a, you around?20:22
replaceafillok, let's have a fun discussion about promotion/graduation again, shall we?20:32
replaceafilli'm testing the report card20:32
replaceafilland checking the peas issue20:32
replaceafillthe peas issue is related to levels and years not being calculated correctly20:32
replaceafillbasically the peas issue is me just querying the level asking "give me your active students"20:33
replaceafillwithout any reference to dates, level gives back just current students20:33
replaceafillso, the rising report card takes into account levels + dates20:33
replaceafillto avoid the same problem20:34
replaceafillso i can ask "give me the students in this level in this range of dates"20:34
replaceafillbut i just found an issue with graduation/promotion dates20:34
replaceafillprobably caused by one of those view20:34
replaceafill2015 is defined from apr 14 to dec 1120:35
replaceafill2016 is defined from jan 11 to jul 1520:35
replaceafillsome students have graduations dates from level one on jan 11 :(20:36
replaceafillso it looks like they graduated after the 2015 year finished20:36
th1aIs that a problem?20:36
replaceafillnow that i'm explaining it20:37
replaceafilli think i got the solution20:37
replaceafillthe lookup based on dates20:37
replaceafillhas to go from "active date to (inactive date - 1 day)"20:37
replaceafillthat way the range comparison would work20:38
replaceafillbecause the comparison only cares about active states20:38
replaceafillbut it feels hacky...20:38
replaceafill"Tom when were you active in level 1?"20:38
replaceafillyou don't answer from day 1 to last day - 1...20:38
replaceafill"i was inactive the last day of the year!" :S20:39
th1aIt probably needs some slack to make up for human input.20:39
replaceafillin any case, being marked as graduated from a level after the year finished seems like a data problem to me20:39
th1aYou mean, not our problem?20:40
th1aBe liberal in what you accept.20:40
replaceafillbut it was probably caused by the buggy views :(20:40
th1aDon't worry about it.20:41
replaceafillnow that i think it through20:41
replaceafillthe attendance way20:41
replaceafillwhen we check *EVERY SINGLE SCHOOL DAY* works like this20:42
replaceafillbecause on the last day you'll be in fact taken as inactive20:42
replaceafilli'll adapt the new code20:42
replaceafillthis new code btw20:42
replaceafilli think it'll be the fix to the peas issue20:42
replaceafilli'll probably move it around later this week20:43
replaceafillthanks th1a20:43
replaceafilli need another developer to talk to :(20:43
th1aYou can talk to me!20:43
th1aBut yeah, I mean, the $50,000 is partly to try to achieve that.20:44
replaceafillget a developer to talk to?20:44
th1aYou have an appt. tomorrow, btw, so no meeting?20:44
replaceafilloh crap20:44
replaceafillthanks for reminding me :)20:44
replaceafilli did confirm it this morning though20:45
