22:08 pikurasa hello
22:08 Quozl #agreed quorum
22:08 pikurasa: hello.
22:08 #topic what we have been working on
22:09 pikurasa hi Quozl
22:09 Quozl i've been working on making sugar and the important activities work on ubuntu 18.04 which is due to be released in a few months.  new beta installer image tested, and documentation updated.  i've a list of things to fix, but i haven't raised them all as issues.
22:09 pikurasa: hello.
22:11 pikurasa Per usual, I have been working much on Music Blocks--testing and design. Notable is that a prospective for GSoC has been creating mockups for this issue https://github.com/walterbende[…]blocks/issues/485 and eohomegrownapps has done much work on the updated planet server, which should be running any day now.
22:11 Another prospective student also started testing our widgets, which need much more testing overall.
22:12 I show Music Blocks to a college class next week at the New England Conservatory. The class is a seminar class for "Music in Education". Should be a great opportunity to share what we are doing.
22:13 Quozl Looks good.  I'd like to see a port of Music Blocks to Sugar as a sugar-web based JavaScript activity, but I'm not sure what the difficulty might be.  We have an embedded-in-browse-activity port at the moment.
22:14 pikurasa Quozl: That sounds good to me. I also do not know how difficult it would be.
22:14 I imagine it may not run well on OLPC, however, as it seems to use a lot of CPU power.
22:14 at least that has been my experience, although we are working on it.
22:15 Quozl pikurasa: don't worry about the older OLPC models; I don't.
22:15 pikurasa sure, but it should be noted
22:15 Quozl pikurasa: but it would be the case even without OLPC existing.  people use old hardware.
22:16 pikurasa I use old hardware
22:16 that is why I know of the issue :)
22:16 Quozl pikurasa: is there a built-in test for measuring platform performance using music blocks?
22:16 pikurasa and perhaps my computer is good to test on for that reason
22:17 Quozl pikurasa: something like a MB-MIPS  ;-)
22:17 pikurasa Quozl: there is an issue on GH to implement something like that
22:17 Quozl cool.
22:17 pikurasa I do not know what MB-MIPS is
22:17 Quozl it was just invented a few seconds ago.
22:17 pikurasa ???
22:17 Quozl google, xkcd, standards.
22:18 https://xkcd.com/927/
22:18 so a metric or standard for music blocks performance on a platform.  and i called it the music blocks millions of instructions per second.
22:19 i've nothing further; motion to close meeting.
22:20 pikurasa This is the particular issue: https://github.com/walterbende[…]locks/issues/1032
22:20 I am done as well +1 for closing
22:20 Thanks again!
