replaceafillhey th1a18:33
replaceafillsorry i'm late18:33
replaceafillforgot to open IRC :S18:34
th1ahi replaceafill.  I wasn't even here anyhow.19:05
replaceafilli remembered you told me about Thursdays19:05
th1aWell, this Thursday.19:05
th1aThis week is comprehensively messed up for me.19:05
th1aBasically everone related to labor decided to stuff their events for the month into the last three days.19:06
th1aSo I'm scrambling around to cover all this stuff and jam it in.19:06
th1aAlso, Monday is Labor Day here (because May 1 is too socialist).19:07
replaceafillbig day for your paper i pressume19:07
replaceafilli mean, important19:07
th1aEh, well, it is kind of a mess.19:08
th1aActually, there aren't a lot of events on Labor Day.19:09
th1aFunctionally it is a generic "bank holiday" which is called Labor Day.19:09
th1aThe end of summer holiday.19:09
th1aWhich was the point of not having it on May Day.19:09
th1aSince it is always right at the beginning of the month, it is not convenient for a monthly paper!19:10
th1aBut also, there is an important union election happening today that is the cover story -- that's why I decided yesterday to push things back.19:11
th1aNeed to know who wins that.19:11
th1aTo have union representation here there is an election process, which is unique in the world I think, and really pretty bizarre.19:11
replaceafillstop the presses!19:11
th1aI got to observe the last meeting of the organizing committee on Tuesday evening, which was pretty intense.19:12
th1aIt is another group of all Hispanic workers.19:12
th1aBut the internal dynamics of this kind of election is intense.  There are 45 workers and they think they have 27 solid for the union.19:13
th1aBut that's a close shave!19:13
replaceafillyou need to work your spanish th1a :)19:14
th1aThey had live translation at the meeting, since the union guys don't have great Spanish either.19:14
th1aThat added a whole other crazy element.19:15
th1aOK, so... I hope I am not demotivating you too much to finish this documentation.19:18
replaceafillwell, i've been wandering around19:18
replaceafillhave to admit it19:18
th1aI have no meetings or other specific obligations at all to cover tomorrow, at least.19:19
replaceafillbut i'm back in the horse now19:19
th1aYeah, task switching sucks.19:19
th1aIt is killing me this week with all three jobs plus houseguests...19:19
th1aWe should try to sprint to the finish by the end of the day tomorrow.19:20
replaceafilli can only sprint until the end of the morning tomorrow19:21
replaceafilli need to take the afternoon off19:21
replaceafilli can start earlier19:21
replaceafill10 am19:22
th1aLet's plan on that.19:23
th1aDo you feel like you know how the remaining Ark specific docs need to go?19:24
replaceafilli'm just following my initial outline19:24
th1aOK.  Great.19:24
replaceafilland taking some of the "top level container" approach19:24
replaceafill"you can get this object like this"...19:24
th1aYes, I think that can be easier.19:24
replaceafillthere's some yellow for you to fill in19:24
th1aI'll take a look tonight.19:25
th1aOK, I have to feed the children.19:26
th1aThanks replaceafill.19:26
replaceafillok, thanks th1a19:26
