    [15:40] <@medieval> hi
    [15:41] <mirek2> hi there
    [15:41] <mirek2> 20 minutes early, I see
    [15:42] <mirek2> anything you'd like to talk about today
    [15:42] <mirek2> ?
    [15:42] <@medieval> not, but i just wanted to see whats going on
    [15:42] <mirek2> btw, please fill in this form:
    [15:43] <@medieval> sunday is always free for me
    [15:43] <mirek2> please fill it into the form, then :)
    [15:43] <@medieval> ok
    [15:43] <@medieval> sorry for not bring here a long time
    [15:44] <mirek2> that's fine
    [15:45] <@medieval> field works are mostly in summer
    [15:45] <mirek2> what was your job?
    [15:46] <@medieval> i am working with black stork
    [15:46] <@medieval> but i was mostly in bird station
    [15:46] <mirek2> ok
    [15:47] <@medieval> "black stork stopover usage by satellite telemetry"
    [15:47] <mirek2> hm, ok
    [15:47] <mirek2> never even heard of that
    [15:49] <@medieval> as i am living in estonia, then i was in saaremaa island
    [15:50] <mirek2> cool
    [15:50] <@medieval> what have been the topics here in latest weeks?
    [15:50] <mirek2> see for yourself:
    [15:51] <mirek2> not much activity as of late, I'm afraid
    [15:51] <mirek2> astron hasn't been involved for a while
    [15:51] <@medieval> (i'm coming back in 15 min)
    [15:51] <mirek2> hence the idea of moving the chat to a different time
    [15:51] <mirek2> ok
    [15:51] <@medieval> ok
    [16:11] <@medieval> iamback
    [16:11] <mirek2> hi again
    [16:12] <mirek2> so... would you like to work on anything related to libreoffice?
    [16:12] <@medieval> possibly
    [16:12] <@medieval> i think there isn't much i can work
    [16:13] <mirek2> what do you mean?
    [16:13] <mirek2> there's tons to do :)
    [16:14] <mirek2> and you can always report UX bugs
    [16:14] <mirek2> writing up the process for that on the wiki as we speak
    [16:15] <@medieval> i heard a bad news that our Ministry of the Environment is moving back to ms office
    [16:16] <@medieval>
    [16:17] <@medieval> problem is that every "template" were made in ms office rtf format... and libreoffice can't handle it correctly
    [16:17] <mirek2> that's sad
    [16:18] <@medieval> yes
    [16:20] <@medieval> they bought ms office licences with 0.6 million euros
    [16:20] <mirek2> what a waste of taxpayer money
    [16:20] <@medieval> i don't know how much licences there are
    [16:21] <mirek2> they could've easily converted those templates to ODF format for that much
    [16:21] <@medieval> it was our only government agency that uses libreoffice
    [16:21] <@medieval> ofcourse
    [16:21] <mirek2> the bug UX is up:
    [16:21] <mirek2> "Report UX Bugs"
    [16:22] <@medieval> my brother didn't know the specific problem they had with rtf
    [16:23] <@medieval> brother is working in enviromental agency
    [16:23] <mirek2> oh, ok
    [16:23] <mirek2> for 0.6 million euros, I'd gladly convert the RTF files for them :)
    [16:23] <@medieval> yea
    [16:24] <@medieval> but our government "goal" is to move open source platvorms in future
    [16:25] <mirek2> if they're unable to convert their RTF templates with that kind of budget, I'd doubt their dedication to that idea
    [16:25] <mirek2> but anyway...
    [16:26] <@medieval> mostly if they let somebody to make some application for government it must be open sources
    [16:26] <mirek2> ok, at least that
    [16:27] <@medieval> yes,
    [16:27] <mirek2> anyway...
    [16:27] <@medieval> currently we have e-elections and it s open sources,
    [16:27] <@medieval> ok
    [16:27] <mirek2> good
    [16:28] <mirek2> so... would you like to work on something?
    [16:28] <mirek2> we have no shortage of tasks :)
    [16:28] <mirek2> icons are one thing you could work on
    [16:28] <@medieval> which ones?
    [16:29] <mirek2> you could help with icons for the iOS remote (that should be relatively simple):
    [16:29] <mirek2> and also quick
    [16:29] <mirek2> (not very many icons there)
    [16:29] <mirek2> or you could help with the monochrome icon set Ahmad is working on
    [16:30] <mirek2> or with a refreshed Tango icon set
    [16:30] <mirek2> both on
    [16:32] <mirek2> or you can report UX bugs, as I said earlier
    [16:32] <mirek2> you can test out the Android Impress Remote, if you have an Android device
    [16:32] <@medieval> i have
    [16:33] <mirek2> then please give feedback :)
    [16:34] <@medieval> (at least our government is paying 1000 euros a month to hold up this: , not best but at least there is something)
    [16:34] <@medieval> i have intalled it, but havent played around
    [16:35] <mirek2> ok
    [16:35] <mirek2> well, when you do, please give feedback
    [16:35] <@medieval> i need to give a lot of presentations this semester then i can test it a lot
    [16:36] <mirek2> ok
    [16:37] <mirek2> still, it'd be good to give some feedback now, before it's released
    [16:37] <mirek2> to smooth out the experience before release
    [16:41] <mirek2> anyway, I'll stop persuading you to work on something :)
    [16:41] <mirek2> anything you'd like to talk about?
    [16:42] <@medieval> ok
    [16:43] <@medieval> is color handling going somewhere?
    [16:45] <mirek2> we don't have a dev for that yet
    [16:46] <mirek2> we do have an easyhack to get it started, though:
    [16:46] <mirek2> just for document colors
    [16:46] <mirek2> (custom colors would be too hard for an easyhack, it seems)
    [16:46] <@medieval> ok...
    [16:47] <@medieval> document colors will be nice too
    [16:47] <mirek2> if you know a developer who might want to work on it, give him a shout :)
    [16:48] <@medieval> (will i need to intall some extension in impress to use remote?)
    [16:49] <@medieval> i donät i looked it up
    [16:50] <mirek2> you'll have to figure that out on your own :)
    [16:51] <mirek2> (if you can't figure out how to run the remote, we'll need to work on its UX)
    [16:51] <mirek2> (try to figure it out just using the app itself)
    [16:52] <@medieval> it doesn't want to connect with my computer...
    [16:52] <mirek2> it's not finding your computer?
    [16:52] <@medieval> it finds it but...
    [16:54] <mirek2> I think this'll be a UX problem, mostly
    [16:58] <@medieval> i can to everything with between computer and phone but not that
    [16:58] <@medieval> now it connected
    [16:58] <@medieval> i needed to turn adapter off and on again
    [16:59] <mirek2> ok
    [17:01] <@medieval> i is working
    [17:01] <mirek2> good
    [17:02] <@medieval> i need bigger screen phone but it is usefull
    [17:03] <mirek2> if it doesn't look good on your phone, be sure to send screenshots
    [17:04] <mirek2> it'd be good if you could send your impressions to the mailing list
    [17:04] <@medieval> it looks
    [17:05] <@medieval> is there optoion where i can look slides in phone when there is blank page on computer
    [17:06] <mirek2> sorry, don't understand what you mean
    [17:06] <mirek2> it's a remote, not a presentation viewer
    [17:06] <mirek2> if that's what you meant
    [17:07] <@medieval> sometimes gving presentation i need to move to slide like 66 but i dont want show them between slides...
    [17:08] <@medieval> its not so big problem
    [17:09] <mirek2> you should be able to do that with this
    [17:10] <@medieval> but i think having time that shows presentation time will be usefull
    [17:11] <@medieval> sometimes i need to between 20 min, 10 min, 45 min and so one
    [17:11] <@medieval> it would be usefull
    [17:12] <mirek2> you mean a timer?
    [17:13] <@medieval> yea
    [17:13] <mirek2> or you mean have more specific time settings for the built-in timer?
    [17:14] <@medieval> and maybe possibility to countdown
    [17:14] <mirek2> ok
    [17:14] <mirek2> I hope you'll write all this to the mailing liste :)
    [17:14] <@medieval> we have a lot limited time presentations
    [17:14] <mirek2> -e
    [17:15] <mirek2> it'll be in the log nevertheless
    [17:15] <@medieval> ux mailing list?
    [17:15] <mirek2> or the design mailing list
    [17:15] <mirek2> (if using the ux list, send it under the existing android remote thread)
    [17:16] <@medieval> i will write something
    [17:16] <mirek2> great :)
    [17:16] <@medieval> ok
    [17:17] <mirek2> anything else you'd like to talk about?
    [17:18] <@medieval> not really
    [17:19] <mirek2> ok
