    •  Calculate the BASE (“xxBxxx”) and OCO (“xxJxxx”) using the 3rd letter of the program element. Should be no need to have a button.

  • Printed out and signed InfoTek’s NDA for Dong and myself. Handed them to Athena.
  • More bug hunting. I had to restore from the repository last night after managing to break the event connection where a series is selected. Managed to keep the “configSeriesChanged” change to SeriesSubConfig and SeriesConfigEvent. I also changed the “Apply” and “Done” events sot that they call methods rather than launching the events directly. This should allow some space to reassemble the xml if I can’t manage to do it anywhere else.
  • Should we be switching over to MariaDB? It’s the open-source successor to MySQL, run by the original developer (and team). Here’s why.
