replaceafilla sec20:52
replaceafillthe goal was to get the verso skills xls with the Skills sheet empty, right?20:53
replaceafillfor glenda to review20:53
th1aWell, I tried to indicate it wasn't really necessary.20:56
th1aBut it is probably helpful.20:56
th1aI'm going to forward an email from Glenda from yesterday (when I said the script was working fine).20:57
th1aActually it is my reply.20:57
th1aIf this is going to be CanDo day...20:57

replaceafillth1a, killed my laptop :S20:59
th1aOK, don't sweat it.21:00
th1aI can't use the mac right now.21:00
th1aIt is their problem.21:00
replaceafillso switch back to docs?21:00
th1aI forwarded an email from Glenda from yesterday (when I said the script was working fine).21:01
replaceafillgod this forwards...21:01
th1aIt also has her general wishes.21:01
th1aWell, do you want every email from Glenda...  ;-)21:01
replaceafillwhat am i supposed to be looking here?21:02
replaceafillmy mental state...?21:02
th1aWell, just the overall status report.21:02
th1aWhat Glenda is worried about.21:02
th1aWhat I think the situation is.21:02
th1aIt would be nice if at some point we could give her CSV versions of the reports she's concerned about.21:03
th1aExcel, CSV.21:03
replaceafillwhat reports are you talking about?21:03
replaceafillwhat reports she's concerned about?21:04
th1aHm... some of the CanDo reports...21:04
th1aLet me see if I can find it.21:04
th1aThe main reports that folks need in a csv export are the Virginia Section Report and the Virginia Required Skills Progress Report and the Completion Report. These are figures that must be used by division to complete state reports.21:04
replaceafillthat's a new feature i'm afraid21:05
th1aWell, yes.21:05
th1aThis would be, essentially, a favor to Glenda.21:05
th1aThat's why it depends on your feelings, not what we're getting paid.21:06
replaceafillthis morning has reminded me how lost i am about all of this at this point21:06
th1aWell, that script is insane.21:06
th1aDid Justas write that?21:07
replaceafillyes initially21:07
th1aA csv version of an existing report is in theory not hard...21:07
replaceafillit is21:08
replaceafillthat's my point21:08
replaceafillit's not tweaks21:08
replaceafillat all21:08
th1aWell, then that's fine.21:08
th1aI'll stop stringing her along.21:08
replaceafillyou would think "if it's already coming in xls, how hard would it be to get a csv from it"21:08
replaceafillanswer: very hard21:09
th1aWell, do I even know what we are talking about?21:09
th1aWhat form are these reports in to start with?21:09
replaceafillthe whole report (background tasks) is currently designed for xls and pdf21:09
replaceafillthe logic for producing the report is not well abstracted, like21:09
replaceafillthis part calculates the data21:10
th1aThis would be XLS or CSV, I was only saying CSV because I assume that it is easier.21:10
replaceafilland this part converts it into this format21:10
replaceafillit's all a single step21:10
th1aAh.  You didn't write those?21:10
replaceafilli did21:10
replaceafillthat's why i know21:10
th1aOK.  ;-)21:10
th1aAll right.21:10
replaceafillfor the record, all our our reports are like that21:11
replaceafillwe may have working infrastructure but not adequate for this type of change21:12
th1aOK, that's fine.21:13
th1aDon't worry about it.21:14
replaceafillok so21:14
