Basil wilted from cold getting down to 36 degrees overnight

I left my basil and Italian parsley out overnight on my front porch. The early morning temperature according to the NCAR foothills lab weather site got down to 37 degrees.

I didn't do my due diligence with researching basil cold tolerance so the leaves wilted :) I brought it in late morning and will keep it in the house for the next few days.

According to one site, as long as the basil didn't freeze it should come back but I might have to trim some of the stems and leaves that might necrophy.

Update: After 8 hours the leaves did come back so it didn't take too long

Here are the photo of the basil plant after it was taken inside:

Jira Administration - custom fields

We use JIRA here at work. 

For logging bugs we have users fill out a form for a defect and then submit.

To edit those forms we need Administrative privileges and when you get to the form in question there are fields and custom fields.

Some fields just update the Field label and you actually need to click on the left side on Custom fields for some fields that use pulldown menus (e.g. versions for a product).

Maybe less than intuitive but for some JIRA form edits you need to look at the custom fields screen.
