    Working on the @civiCRM Service Inquiry Form https://krcla.ourpowerbase.net/service2 and finding this dilemma:

    Going from the multi-column form https://krcla.ourpowerbase.net/en/k/service to a flat structure, the service categorization came out cumbersome so instead I tried a two-pronged approach:

    • have them first select the big categories of IRP/HAP/Housing, and then show a second list that goes into depth. (useful)
    • detect key words from the client describing their problem in the paragraph box, and auto categorize. since conditional “set to” creates unchangeable variables, create a checkbox to deactivate feature. (very nice)

    The problem is that the two methods each work, but canj’t be in place simultaneously. The second list method relies on the IRP sublist, HAP sublist being hidden and making them shown depending on which larger category was chosen. Because these lists are hidden, I can’t make the keyword detection both show the sublist and make selection from the sublist at the same time. If I just tell it to choose an item from the sublist, the sublist shows up (as per sublist conditional, not the keyword detection conditional), but no choice is made.

    Which feature to kill, which feature to kill…

    When four screens comes in handy

    I dreamt that we were having a press conference to announce the Know Your Rights android app. It was someone tall and big (Karn? Staff 1) and.. Staff 2 ? doing the conference, I was sitting in the audience side. The dream started when the conference ended, and Staff 2 was about to say “Thank you for coming..”.

    So I quickly went to Staff 2 and told them that they hadn’t done the live phone demonstration yet. “Oh ok”. “We will show you how to install and use the app”.

    While this was happening, another staff, Staff 3, had already connected to Chromecast and for some reason was stuck trying to find the app among four superhero posters on the TV screen.. like the Incredible Four or something. Staff 3 I think was white.. they were like “where is it? It’s supposed to be around here..” So I went to the staff and said “Let me connect my phone, we can make this quicker” but Staff 3 started screaming “no, I can do it! This is when I need to practice”

    I could feel the reporters wanted to leave, since they were mostly done anyways. Then I realized that this was not June 3rd, the date for which (insde the dream at least) the conference was scheduled for – it was May 23rd.. or 30th? So I started thinking “what happened? Was this a press conf on something else and Staff 1 figured this was the time to announce the app?” That’s how the dream ended.

    I guess it highlights the importance of coordinating time information properly.

    You can’t just 180 from years of hate speech into a sudden “Muslim is beautiful, muslim is good” blabber and expect people to swallow it, without first taking responsibility for your mess, Ideally you would say that you were wrong before; Obama said “his thinking had evolved” as he took a turn on LGBTQ issues. This fucker needs to start off by apologizing to victims of hate crime in the U.S., which he will never do.

    Is Trump going to go back to the U.S. and keep on pandering to xenophobia in his base? Of course he is. Your standard self-entitled suburban white kid who goes to college and protests “buuut i’m noooot racist!”

    I was watching this EU4 meme vid and at the end of it there was the first two seconds of God Save The Queen. I was like.. hey now, I now this song! Played the full song and yup, it’s one of the church anthems.

    We could be in the middle of a long con to bring establishment republicans (ryan, etc) to head the executive with widespread bipartisan, broad based support and figures like mcmaster, comey et al are priebus plants to exacerbate the “anyone but trump omg pls” feeling in the public.

    This is such an undesirable looking impeachment
