@pmignone
Sure I'll do it at gardening tomorrow.
Tim Dettrick
@tjdett
Much appreciated Paul.

@DFFlanders
Wondering what status is for channels like this a la slack?
Paul Mignone
@pmignone
So were migrating every convo over to slack then?
Damien Irving
@DamienIrving
@DFFlanders @pmignone At this stage we are trialling Slack for internal ResCom communications only. All other channels (dit4c, external ResBaz) remain unchanged on gitter.

@pmignone
@DamienIrving cool

@tjdett FYI Blender is working quite well in the 4cpu container. No issues so far.
@tjdett so...how 'game' are you to try it for Maya? ;-)
@tjdett Not a high priority by any means but it would be good to see how licensed modules fare on dit4c.

@tjdett How hard would it be to get something like S2Plot into DIT4C? http://astronomy.swin.edu.au/s2plot/index.php?title=S2PLOT:Installation
Tim Dettrick
@tjdett
@bmeade Best as I can tell, no more difficult than installing it on a local machine would be. The packaging for the software is extremely primitive though. Skim-reading the INSTALL.TXT suggests it's not going to be quick to do an install, though fortunately I'd only have to do this once.
Building the Underworld image was a good lesson of how much effort can be involved.

@bmeade
@tjdett Apparently the installation is tricky enough that many researchers aren't making use of it. I could build it as a cloud image but I thought DIT4C might make more sense. What do you think?
Tim Dettrick
@tjdett
@bmeade I think long-term DIT4C makes more sense. In the short term the steps required to build a DIT4C image are much the same as building a VM image, so I think it's worth starting with the DIT4C image.
Tim Dettrick
@tjdett
@pmignone I'm not going to build a Maya image initially, because there's "secret" information in it that can't go on the public site I use for image distribution. In the meantime, use the install script, which I'll re-paste in private chat.
Use the X11 image as a base.

OK cool

@DamienIrving
@tjdett You helped me setup an Octave environment a few months back for a paper I was reviewing. The authors have revised their submission and I need to re-test, but it seems my jors_review container is now inactive?
Tim Dettrick
@tjdett
@DamienIrving Which compute node? There were a few clean-ups post-ResBaz, and it's possible your container became collateral damage. If so, sorry about that. I can set you up with access to a new compute node with Octave available if that is the case.
Damien Irving
@DamienIrving
@tjdett The compute node is reviewer-node-01. No problems if it was collateral damage - there was nothing important on there, I just need access to Octave and also Mercurial (interestingly, it's the first software paper I've ever reviewed where the authors are using Mercurial/Bitbucket as opposed to git/GitHub or git/Bitbucket).
Damien Irving
@DamienIrving
@tjdett Cancel that request (sorry). I ended up using Octave on someone else's machine.
Damien Irving
@DamienIrving
@tjdett Is this still the place we should ask questions in the lead up to and during ResBaz 2017?
Tim Dettrick
@tjdett
@DamienIrving I'm happy with you asking questions on resbaz-team.slack.com for ResBaz 2017. That way everything is in the one place.

@mdsumner
@tjdett any chance I could use the dashboard to show the usage of DIT4C this afternoon? I can't find the link we had for it unfortunately
Huh, of course just now I found it easily! I'll try this out a bit today and hopefully demo it briefly this afternoon in a meeting, cheers
Michael Sumner
@mdsumner
looking good, this is working fine - thanks @tjdett
