13:14 mgage niall1: for tutorial -- use set0 (comes with most courses) or   Orientation (my preference) which is probably in most modelCourses and if not you can find it in the Union library.
13:15 mgage niall1:  solving +11f(x) problem  -- this is what ->reduce() solves with MathObjects.  It's a method with an output, it doesn't modify the object itself.
13:16 mgage there is an older function called FEQ() but it is deprecated.

18:28 goehle hey mgage
18:57 shdw_work if webwork already exists on a server, do I actually need root access to install a new test-copy?
19:09 shdw_work the admins are setting up a test folder for me to install 2.8 from scratch.  We'll see how well our current courses drop into place.
19:18 mgage goehle: hi
19:18 goehle hi
19:19 goehle how many people should I reserve for the conference
19:20 goehle code camp
19:20 goehle rather
19:20 niall1 joined #webwork
19:20 mgage If we have this concentrated on polishing webwork3 I would guess on the small side -- that's how I've tentatively budgeted it.  So something more like WW::Rochester::2013 than WW:AnnArbor.  If we have a second project going we can make it larger.
19:21 goehle so 20?
19:21 mgage so let's start nailing down the problems we're going to address first to be sure.
19:21 goehle wait
19:21 goehle sorry
19:21 goehle rochester was smaller
19:21 goehle right.  I'm supposed to call the hilton and tell them that a group may be showing up.
19:22 mgage I was thinking more like 15 -- on the other hand if we can cut back as we get closer it's probably better to start with 20
19:22 goehle I'm not actually booking rooms
19:22 goehle people will have to do that on their own
19:22 goehle I'll say 20
19:22 goehle since we dont actually have to book anything
19:22 mgage then I would go with the larger number 20 should be fine
19:22 goehle just to be safe
19:22 mgage yep
19:22 goehle ok sounds good
19:22 goehle thats the main thing I needed to do
19:23 mgage we do need to start planning a program -- let's get in touch with Peter and see what he thinks is needed.
19:23 goehle yeah
19:23 goehle we could schedule a hangout sometime
19:23 goehle that would probably get teh ball rolling
19:25 goehle any evening this week would work for me
19:26 mgage let me check -- I think after 8:15 tonight would work for me (I have a commitment until 8 but should be home by 8:15)
19:27 goehle ok
19:31 goehle I also decided to go with Hydra
19:31 goehle it will be $3200 for the project
19:32 goehle I was going to reserve the option for an additional 9 characters (another $3000) if we really like the work
19:32 goehle I'll wait for your final approval before I tell them
19:36 mgage ok -- I'm talking to Bicki about the budget tomorrow so I'll give you a final word on this tomorrow night -- soon enough?
19:39 goehle That should be fine.  I just wanted to let you know where I was at.
19:39 goehle The minimum would be $1600
19:40 mgage I'm pretty sure this is all well within our budget -- even the extra characters -- but I want at least two pairs of eyes to look over the budget to make sure I'm not missing something.   Jason is taking a crack at it as well
19:40 goehle I figured
19:41 mgage where is the best url to see a sample from Hydra
19:42 goehle http://hydraidm.com/
19:42 goehle that has a video reel of there work
19:42 mgage got it
19:42 goehle I can get a new official quote, if its necessary
19:42 goehle you can see their original one
19:43 goehle and their response about pro-rating on the number of characters
19:43 goehle in elance
19:43 goehle actually, I will get a new official quote once we say yes
19:43 goehle that way it gives us something to use for documentation
19:43 goehle and maybe we can get some of the paperwork going while we are hammering out the details of the agreement
19:46 mgage seems like all that can wait until tomorrow night.  I don't think I need to see the preliminary quote -- I was following the conversation more or less on email -- but I didn't have a chance to look at the images.
19:46 goehle no problem
19:47 goehle It can all wait.  I want to hear back from them if the exclusive copyright changes the price in any case
