16:53 Paul___ Mike, would it be possible to restart the webserver on webwork.test.maa.org?  Things are slow, and I'm hoping that a restart will be all that's needed to speed things up again.
16:54 mgage_ k-- it will be a few minutes
16:54 Paul___ Thanks!
18:38 aubreyja gage, mgage_: did you get my test message to webwork-devel?
18:44 aubreyja mgage - can you resend your message to ww-devel (reply to djun)? I think the list is working now but it looks like the past messages just got dropped
18:59 mgage aubreyja: got your test message, just resent my post

20:38 mgage aubreyja: I'm having trouble connecting to the maa server via vpn -- has something changed?
20:39 mgage aubreyja:  Paul Pearson asked me to reboot test --- it's running slowly.
20:49 mgage aubreyja:hi
21:17 aubreyja Hi gage - around?
21:17 aubreyja mgage
21:17 mgage hi
21:17 mgage do you have a few minutes?
21:17 aubreyja Sure - I've got a question for you too!
21:17 mgage k -- you first
21:17 aubreyja is the moodle bridge known to work with gateways?
21:18 mgage yes -- I used it two years ago with gateways.  -- I haven't used it since.
21:18 aubreyja ah, ok, because the blackboard bridge isn't
21:18 mgage I also haven't used it with moodle2.0
21:19 aubreyja but, I don't see where the assignSetVersionToUser logic is implemented in the web service
21:20 mgage I had to change some things to make  moodle work with gateways -- don't remember what at the moment but the changes would have been made fall 2010 -- you can see them here: https://math.webwork.rochester.edu/moodle/course/view.php?id=25
21:20 aubreyja ah, that'll help - thanks
21:20 mgage I can give you instructor status if you don't have it already
21:20 mgage login in first to moodle and then I can promote you
21:21 aubreyja login as guest?
21:21 mgage no create a login for yourself (sign up)
21:22 aubreyja I don't see that option
21:22 mgage oh right -- we were using LDAP that semester. -- hang on
21:25 mgage see if aubreyja/aubreyja  works
21:26 aubreyja yep - in
21:26 mgage change password and I'll upgrade you to prof
21:27 aubreyja changed
21:27 goehle hey - did that one server get upgraded?
21:28 djun joined #webwork
21:28 mgage sorry what do you mean?
21:28 aubreyja not yet, I started it but haven't finished it yet, I'll get it upgraded by tomorrow mornign
21:29 aubreyja ftcourses
21:29 goehle great, I was going to email serge when it was done so I was just checking in
21:29 mgage oh sorry -- now get it.  So we were going to upgrade ftcourses to ww2.5.1.1 right?
21:29 aubreyja I'll email you when I've got it going
21:29 aubreyja yep
21:29 goehle great thanks
21:29 goehle :)
21:30 mgage kk -- I'm having trouble getting in to maa via vpn -- possibly because I'm logging in from work -- are you able to login?
21:30 aubreyja I think I'll use the webwork-dev version after our discussion about this today - that sound right?
21:30 aubreyja yeah
21:31 mgage I think so that will give us some testing when a bug is fixed --- someone can put the patch into webwork2-dev/ branch ww2.5.1.1 and watch the error logs on ftcourses to make sure everything is ok.
21:31 aubreyja did you have gateway in this course?
21:32 mgage mth164?  yes   anything labeled ...._quiz is a gateway
21:32 aubreyja ah
21:32 aubreyja now I see it
21:32 mgage check and see if you have instructor priveleges when you go to webwork -- I think I gave them to you -- but they have to be set on webwork, not on moodle
21:33 aubreyja I do in webwork, but the quizzes keep sending me to the orientation set..
21:34 mgage I'll check -- just a second -- here is the url for the webwork course itself -- you may want to log into that directly some times.  https://math.webwork.rochester.edu/webwork2/fall10mth164b/ww01/
21:35 aubreyja do you remember what sort of changes you had to make to get them to work - changes to webwork or the moodle bridge?
21:35 mgage changes to the moodle bridge
21:37 aubreyja ok - what did you want to chat about?
21:39 mgage about being sent to the orientation set -- some of these quizzes -- and probably homework sets -- have to be reattached to their counterparts in webwork.
21:39 mgage you can go ahead and do that -- I'm using this as a demonstration and a memory of how things worked.
21:40 aubreyja sure - it's not too important I think - mainly I need to figure out how to get gateways working with the blackboard bridge.
21:40 mgage I wanted to ask whether vpn was working  and also about the update to ftcourses.  -- I plan to update test to ww2.5.1.3 this weekend
21:40 mgage I can probably figure out what changes I made -- I'll poke around when I get home.
21:41 mgage does vpn work for you?
21:41 aubreyja yep, I just now logged in - it seems to be working for me.
21:41 aubreyja can you connect to other vpns from work? Maybe they block that
21:41 mgage ok -- then the problem is on my end I guess.  I'll work on that when I get home
21:41 mgage -- because they may be blocking that from work.
21:42 mgage meantime could you restart test?  Paul Pearson requested it earlier because test was running slowly.
21:42 mgage and then send Paul a note
21:42 aubreyja sure - I'll do that now
21:43 mgage I'm also getting some problems with the moodle/webwork bridge because of Wheeler's checks about cookie and key  -- - that's been causing headaches regularly I'm afraid.
21:44 aubreyja me too - I'll likely just revert back tot he old Authen - I did that last semester
21:45 mgage I'd like to fix it -- I'm not even sure what good the checks are doing.  The main reason the new Authen was included was because a number of people wanted LTI fast.
21:46 aubreyja yeah, the checks seem to be doing no good.  They just croak if things don't match.
21:51 mgage ok -- quiz1 should work for you now -- I've extended the time limit for that and also made it possible to take the quiz as many times as you want
21:51 mgage You can doctor other quizzes yourself if you wish.
21:51 aubreyja thanks
21:52 mgage I should get it ready as a demo for using quizzes and moodle anyway
21:52 mgage I'm also going to start on the release procedure page on the wiki -- I may email you tonight for comments.
21:56 aubreyja great - I'll be on
22:01 mgage if you have time could you work on a "using github" page for the wiki?  There is one there already but I haven't updated it in some time.  We need two -- one for those just downloading a copy of webwork and keeping it updated   -- and a second one for developers who will be creating their own github and contributing code.  I think the one that is there now is more geared toward developers -- but it's certainly incomplete since I was still learning
22:01 mgage at the time.
22:04 djun joined #webwork
22:08 aubreyja I've got to run, but I'll look at it when I get home.  BTW, found a quick hack that seems to make the building block work with gateway quizzes….
22:08 mgage great --- ttyl
22:08 aubreyja ttyl
