00:01 jwagner I had to buy a new PC this summer (old one croaked).  I have a dual core processor, 4 GB RAM, 450GB hard drive, and I think it was less than $900
00:01 briceSanc left #koha
00:02 * LBA bids adieu for the night
00:03 LBA left #koha
00:09 jcamins I definitely wonder sometimes why I'm still using a four-year-old laptop with 512MB RAM, 60GB hard drive, and 1.2Ghz CPU.

00:10 Braedon joined #koha
00:10 jwagner Because it works?  I have a laptop of about that era, higher RAM & capacity because I bought it for video editing, but it still works fine for what i need
00:11 jcamins Yeah, and I don't plan on replacing it for a while, but it would be a lot easier to test Koha if I could run VirtualBox on my main computer.
00:12 jwagner druthb keeps threatening to come over & set up an instance on my PC, but I don't want one.  I have plenty of machines I can log into at work if I need to.
00:12 jcamins By the way, I was very impressed with how easy it was to update my server to 3.2.0RC.
00:12 jwagner The only problem I had was with the new Perl module.  Once that loaded it was OK.
00:12 jcamins Ah, well, I just have my laptop and an old desktop I scavenged from the office which can run VirtualBox, barely.
00:14 jcamins I can definitely see the appeal of not having Koha running on a personal computer.
00:15 jwagner Yes.  I do work from home frequently (you should see the pile that came home with me for this allegedly holiday weekend), but it's my HOME dammit.  Keep work AT work!
00:16 jcamins Starting a business has completely blurred the line between home and work for me.
00:16 jwagner Well, yes, that could be a problem :-)
00:39 jcamins @wunder 11105
00:39 munin jcamins: The current temperature in Astoria, Astoria, New York is 21.3�C (8:45 PM EDT on October 08, 2010). Conditions: Clear. Humidity: 43%. Dew Point: 8.0�C. Pressure: 29.82 in 1009.7 hPa (Rising).
00:54 jcamins How do I take a branch from a remote repository and apply it to my current branch?
00:55 chris ahh
00:55 chris youve made a remote for it?
00:55 jcamins Yeah.
00:56 chris and fetched that remote?
00:56 jcamins Yup.
00:56 jcamins And now it's sitting there, grinning at me toothily.
00:56 chris then git merge remotename/branchname
00:56 chris will merge it into the current branch you have checked out
00:57 jcamins Thanks.
01:00 * jwagner shudders at the thought of toothy git branches
01:00 jcamins Hm.
01:00 jcamins Okay, there was a merge commit.
01:00 jcamins And I resolved it.
01:00 jcamins And git merge --continue doesn't do anything.
01:01 jcamins What am I missing here?
01:04 chris if you fixed it
01:04 chris all you need to do now is
01:04 chris git commit -a
01:04 jcamins Oh, I see.
01:04 jcamins Thanks.
01:06 chris no worries, it should give you a commit message thats prefilled with the merge info
01:16 jcamins kf's linking code is pretty nifty.
01:16 jcamins Well, very nifty.
01:16 chris shes a smart one
01:17 jcamins Why isn't the rcn index working...
01:20 jcamins Wait.
01:20 jcamins Probably because bib1.att is installed in koha-dev, right?
01:20 jcamins No, it isn't.
01:21 jcamins Hm.
01:21 jcamins Do you have to reindex to add a new index?
01:21 jcamins Probably.
01:22 jwagner If you want your existing records to be indexed with the new one, yes.
01:22 jcamins I don't need that, though.
01:23 jwagner Has a record with data for the new index gone through zebra yet?
01:24 jcamins It should.
01:24 jcamins It's kf's data.
01:24 jcamins She mentioned that they have a special data massage step.
01:26 jwagner I dunno then....
01:27 jcamins Weird.
01:27 jcamins Wait.
01:28 jcamins I can't even figure out where the search is coming from.
01:28 jcamins Oh, there it is.
01:28 jcamins 830.
01:34 jcamins But why doesn't it work?
01:37 jwagner I don't know, but I have no brain cells left.  You'll have to ask kf next week.  I'll be back on Wednesday (probably still with no brain cells.....)
01:38 jcamins That was a rhetorical question.
01:38 jwagner :-) lack of brain cells means trying to process questions literally....
01:38 jwagner Maybe I should just go watch baseball......
01:39 jwagner Good night chris and jcamins -- see you on Wednesday.
01:39 jcamins Have a good weekend.
01:40 jwagner you too.

10:19 magnus hi cait!
10:22 cait not so nice to wake up to this blog pos t:(
10:23 CGI081 left #koha
10:25 magnus no, it wasn't...
10:26 * cait shares a cookie with magnus
10:27 magnus ooh, thanks! i have some anise flavoured sweets if you want?
10:27 cait anise - yum :)
10:27 zipporah joined #koha
10:28 * magnus sends a sweet to cait and watches lots of perl modules fly by in the terminal as RC1 installs...
10:28 cait thx :)
10:29 cait want to do that later
10:29 cait test if the battery of the old laptop is still ok and install linux and koha on it :)
10:29 magnus good plan!
10:30 magnus i'm actually installing for a client, on their server
10:30 cait want to take it with me to nz - my current laptop's battery will only live for about 30 minutes :(
10:30 zipporah How can I connect my Windows XP to Lixux Server running Koha 3.0.6 on the LAN so that I can run OPAC?
10:30 cait not what you want to take on travel with you
10:31 magnus cait: no, that wont be much use unless you have a power outlet nearby
10:32 zipporah Sorry I meant Linux Server and not Lxux.
10:37 zipporah Can you help me. I have just managed to install Koha Live CD on Ubutntu 10.04  and things look to be working but how do I connect other computer running Windows XP on the LAN?
10:37 magnus zipporah: that sounds more like general linux/networking issue than a koha issue - you might have more luck in linux/networking fora...
10:39 zipporah Thanks. Let me check with the LINUX/Networking forum.
10:43 zipporah But how about this problem whereby I cannot see the Printing facility when I go to System>Preferences?
10:44 cait printing facility?
10:44 zipporah or Printing option?
10:45 zipporah So that I can set up the Printer
10:45 cait yo don't have to set up a printer in koha
10:45 cait it uses the default printer of your system
10:46 cait so if you log in from a windows pc it will use the printers installed on that system
10:47 cait if you are asking aobut setting up printers in linux - I have no idea :)
10:48 cait I have not much experience with linux
10:50 zipporah Let me put it clear. I am talking about problem on the computer where I have installed Koha Livecd. That is where the printing is just defaulting to PRINT TO FILE in the Mozilla Firefox.
10:51 zipporah Ok  I have got your point.  Thanks then.

13:11 * slef sits in a meeting, but checks mail+chat
13:11 slef and who is kas0220?
13:11 Barc joined #koha
13:11 slef who wrote *that* blog post
13:11 slef hi Barc
13:12 cait the liblime blog post?
13:12 Barc Hi slef
13:12 slef yes, it says by kas0220
13:13 cait no idea
13:14 slef anyway, next time jwagner asks why ptfs is so unpoular, there's another example!
13:15 slef they do more spin than any other koha co
13:18 cait I don't understand them
13:20 slef well libs keep  buying from them  so I guess they feel it works
13:21 cait time will tell
13:22 slef someone posted about libs accepting any old rubbish from suppliers a while ago... do you really think libs will assert themselves?
13:23 cait not sure I understand your statement
13:24 cait I think if koha is the better product people and libraries will use it
13:24 cait and they will recognize the difference and the alternatives
13:24 cait but it takes some time perhaps
13:25 slef but ptfs claim to be koha...
13:25 slef how do we point up the difference?
13:25 cait like we do know, speaking about it, telling people
13:25 cait help them to make educated decisions
13:26 slef getting flamed for it, like nengard?
13:26 cait if someone calls me asking about koha I always ask about the version they installed and explain the differences
13:26 cait I think this makes pfts look bad, not us
13:26 cait so let them flame
13:27 slef I hop you're right. we don't get much feedback from clients on this aspect
13:27 slef hope
13:27 cait I normally stay a bit back, but I don't think that blog post was very wise
13:27 Braedon what blog post?
13:28 slef bbl
13:28 slef sorry
13:28 cait Braedon: there is a new blog post in open sesame
13:29 cait and a reply from Nicole
