replication failure

only noticed today that the backup/replication (slave) database server wasnt doing its job. Luckily its pretty easy to fix - just a case of restarting the slave, finding where it had got to, and getting it to catch up. After an hour or 2 it had worked its way through a couple of weeks worth of database queries. Quite impressive considering its only an 800MHz PIII

Attendance register
Made various tweaks to this yesterday, as it was pointed out that you couldnt actually delete an event, or allow a different user to manage one. As well as fixing these minor omissons, sorted the problem with events and updated class lists - if students were added to the class list after some entries had been made, they werent added to the event list. Still, it works now anyway.

Newsletter
Just finished the latest edition of the mighty SPIDER newsletter. Didn't write it last month - too busy finishing bits of v5, so this one has to cover both Aug and Sept. Essential reading as usual.

New bits

Tuesday 04 October 2005 05:02 pm

Class lists
Start of session, class lists are wrong (as usual), the usual dozen or so emails per day asking to be added to the lists. Need to sort things out so that the emails go to the cluster admins instead of all of them coming to spider-vle@strath.ac.uk...

Category headings
Have edited the class management system to add in a new 'category heading' - renamed simulations and other media as simply simulations and added in sample materials & multimedia, which was requested by the SCA cluster

Bans
handed out the first ban of the year - student swearing in the chat overnight. Read the T&C people! There's even a reminder on the chat window that the postings are logged/monitored.

Degree Programmes
SPIDER now records what year/degree programme students are on. Each year of a programme has a list of associated classes. Tweaked the admin programme manager tool to allow removal of classes and to allow classes to be added cross-cluster

PEGASUS
why does it log you out after about 5 mins of inactivity?? Anyone?

SPIDER fixes n new bits

SPIDER n PEGASUS
Fixed the PEGASUS/SPIDER links - the VLE tab in PEGASUS wasnt working following the tweaks to SPIDER v5. A simple uncommenting of a script sorted it out.

Cluster info
The cluster info page now allows admins to edit a file's properties as well as the file name.

Blogs
The Blog tools is now live. All users can now cause havoc by posting unlimited streams of (un?)consciousness for all to enjoy [what are we thinking???]
