14:25 aubreyja Hi Mike - sorry for the delay getting to the narrative. I put something together in a google doc and shared it with you. Can you have a look and edit it as you see fit? We can talk about it with the others at the call today.
15:27 mgage I added something about the second code camp  -- but not much.  We should crank out an invitation letter

20:15 jaybron Hello?
20:17 jaybron Does anyone know if it is possible to rename a homework set?
20:18 jaybron I would like to make a change to the name of the homework sets.  Example: Math_Homework_01 --> Chapter_00_Math_Assignment
20:30 jaybron thanks to anyone who answers this for me...

22:08 ionparticle hi jaybron, I don't think you can rename sets, but you can make a copy of the set, give it the correct name, and delete the incorrectly named one
22:09 jaybron If the problem set has already been graded, will the grades transfer as well?
22:10 ionparticle ah, I don't know
22:20 ionparticle ok, I took a look at the code
22:20 ionparticle doesn't like it copies the grades over
22:21 mgage it doesn't -- I'm afraid you can't usefully rename a course after it's graded.
22:22 mgage you can make a copy with a new name for future use.
22:26 jaybron OK.  Thanks all.
22:27 mgage it's one of the things we'll change when we can -- the underlying problem is that we used the set name for the primary id in the database
22:27 mgage rewriting the database is high on our list of things to do, but it's not a small project
