03:35 druthb had dinner with one of my favorite Koha people...never ever dull...

03:36 rangi wizzyrea_: space_librarian is a new hire at catalyst .. second week eh space_librarian ?
03:36 wizzyrea_ oh nice! lucky duck :)
03:36 space_librarian yes, and still surviving...
03:36 space_librarian :)
03:37 * wizzyrea_ imagines a mashup of carl sagan and marian the librarian, giggles
03:37 ibeardslee you've seen the staff photo too?
03:37 wizzyrea_ O.O lol
03:37 space_librarian oi!
03:37 wizzyrea_ pic or it didn't happen ;)
03:39 eythian[…]kmain_445x319.jpg <-- you can tell because of the book
03:40 wizzyrea_ lol
03:40 space_librarian damn. That's a cleric not to be messed with.
03:41 * eythian kicks off a migration script, all going well this'll be perfect and I can relax.
03:42 space_librarian you're tempting Murphy again.
03:42 wizzyrea_ we try not to feed murphy here
03:42 druthb I usually plan for all of my migrations to be near-disasters.  That way I can be happy when they are not.
03:43 wizzyrea_ ^^ does the same (not with migrations per se, with most of her projects)
03:43 eythian you people are such pessimists.
03:43 wizzyrea_ realist?
03:43 eythian cynic.
03:43 druthb no, just been in the biz too long for idealism.
03:44 rangi without idealism koha wouldnt exist :)
03:44 wizzyrea_ ^^
03:44 * druthb chuckles.
03:45 druthb I have plenty of idealism about Koha.  But not about migrations.  It'd be easy 'cept for all these screwy librarians doing nasty things to poor helpless data.
03:45 space_librarian pragmatists!
03:45 * wizzyrea_ has lots of helpless data
03:45 eythian that is definitely an issue.
03:45 * eythian shakes fist at librarians.
03:45 space_librarian poor, helpless data
03:45 wizzyrea_ though... i'm pretty sure it wasn't my librarians who messed it up >.>
03:45 druthb yes, you do, wizzyrea_ .  You guys are bonkers, but I loves ya.
03:46 wizzyrea_ i'm going to tell them that they're bonkers tomorrow
03:46 druthb :)
03:46 eythian oh hey. I think that run worked.
03:46 * eythian prepares to load up the staging server.
03:46 * space_librarian crosses fingers
03:46 * wizzyrea_ ponders the fact that she has 33 libraries, and at least double that many librarians adding things every day
03:46 wizzyrea_ you're right, we're bonkers.
03:47 space_librarian but it's so much fun!
03:47 * space_librarian looks at the koha propaganda she's writing...
03:49 space_librarian Actually, is it propaganda if it's the truth?
03:49 eythian I think so, yes
03:49 wizzyrea_ well, yes, I think so
03:49 ibeardslee depends if you've won the war or not
03:49 space_librarian Are we winning?
03:49 wizzyrea_ yea, don't be like the iraqi information minister
03:50 space_librarian lol
03:50 rangi we won 2 years ago, its just taking a long time for the others to realise that
03:50 ibeardslee heh
03:50 space_librarian but of course. Nobody else got the memo.
03:53 eythian Query OK, 0 rows affected (1 min 4.83 sec)
03:53 eythian you do lie so, mysql.
03:54 space_librarian problem?
03:54 wahanui rumour has it problem is he will even be able to check the item out again if there is a reserve (using selfcheck)
03:54 eythian no, '0 rows affected' when it had just spend a minute deleting 70,000 of them.
03:54 * druthb pokes wahanui
03:54 eythian oh bother. They have duplicate barcodes.
03:55 space_librarian What did I say about tempting Murphy?
03:55 eythian hey, this isn't my problem, per se.

04:21 eythian Brooke_: yay!
04:21 space_librarian I came back at the wrong time...
04:21 eythian or the _right_ time?!
04:22 Brooke_ :D
04:22 space_librarian true.
04:22 wizzyrea_ oh that's what I was going to say!
04:22 wizzyrea_ I wasn't fast enough >.>
04:22 * space_librarian finds the mirror ball
04:22 * wizzyrea_ looks for the heeled shoes
04:23 eythian conveniently, there's already a blinking floor here.
04:23 Brooke_ surely it is what Mr. Christie intended.
04:24 eythian I have no doubt.
04:25 eythian 2193 duplicate barcodes. I'm willing to bet that's Liberty vomit.
04:25 Brooke_ oof
04:25 space_librarian yep.
04:32 * wizzyrea_ yawns
04:33 Brooke_ oof not you too
04:36 * eythian cranks the Devin Townsend in order to keep motivated for the next hour.
04:39 eythian <-- what a curious idea
04:42 Brooke_ hehehe
04:43 Brooke_ clearly it is your solemn duty to represent paper in Jo's name.
04:44 eythian hehe
04:45 space_librarian I'm tempted. Just for kicks...
04:45 darling left #koha
04:46 space_librarian Nope. Men's medium. No go.
04:47 eythian that does seem like an odd restriction
04:50 space_librarian And now I'm going. For real. Keep on dancing...
04:52 Brooke_ cheers

08:50 magnuse wassup rangi?

08:50 magnuse ah
08:52 davi joined #koha
08:55 magnuse lazy americans, asleep when we need them... ;-)
08:57 magnuse btw, where does one apply for admin rights on the wiki? i'd like to help fight spam if i may...
08:59 rangi ahh i think i can do that, whats your username?
09:00 magnuse just Magnus
09:02 slef rangi: it is close to the border-line, but I think a small RM sponsorship note would be OK. Possibly newsletter for now, then note the sponsorship if/when you're appointed as 3.6 RM at next IRC general meeting?
09:04 slef And is there no way to test wiki pages for spamminess and hold dubious ones (like if ((links-to-other-wiki-pages < 2) and (back-links < 2) and (off-site-links > 0)) then hold for moderation)?
09:05 paul_p slef, very good idea ! (the moderation for wiki permissions)
09:05 rangi magnuse: ahh i cant, but i think paul can
09:06 rangi slef: i have no idea, im sure there probably is
09:06 paul_p we are a small wiki, with most contributors being long-time contributor, so putting some limits to creating pages is OK I think. Or we could add a full moderation = be able to write only after having written somethin on koha-devel or sent a mail to wiki admins.
09:07 paul_p rangi & magnuse = looking to see if I can give you erms
09:08 slef paul_p: barriers to entry hinder community growth.  By-page moderation would be better.
09:09 magnuse rangi & paul_p: looks like a Bureaucrat is needed...
09:09 paul_p rangi, & magnuse = I have your user page Magnus, but can't see where I can give you admin perms
09:09 rangi yep i have admin, but not bureaucrat
09:10 rangi ahh same with paul
09:10 rangi thd, gmcharlt or nengard can do it
09:10 magnuse yup, i better wait for the americans (again with the americans! ;-)
09:11 magnuse thanks for trying

09:39 kf ah
09:39 kf ok, I thought we had talked about them on one meeting, but can't find my notes
09:39 rangi yeah, we discussed them, nothing set in stone tho
09:39 rangi depends how march goes
09:40 rangi most likely feature freeze end of march string freeze on the 8th of april

12:27 * jcamins goes to feed his sourdough starter before getting his day completely started.
12:28 magnuse jcamins: say hi to it from us! ;-)
12:32 druthb When the sourdough starter answers back, you'll know it's a little *too* ready.
12:32 jwagner druthb, maybe the sourdough just doesn't want to disappoint its fans?
12:33 druthb Possibly, jwagner, but just like the Nats....   :P
12:33 jwagner Hey! Spring training has just started!!! Let us have at least some time to enjoy the prospect of a great season before cold cruel reality sets in....
12:34 druthb hee hee
12:35 * druthb heard a Cubs fan once say, "yeah, the Cubs will suck again this year, but that's okay, I'll still go."
12:35 jwagner I'm going to make a bold prediction that the Nats will _not_ finish at the bottom of the National League East this year.  I didn't say they'd finish at the top, mind you....
12:35 nengard is git still not working?
12:35 * druthb likes the hard-boiled realism of Cubs fans like that.
12:36 druthb looks good from here, nengard
12:36 nengard hmmm

12:58 jwagner Awwww.  How sweet! (or sour?)
13:00 magnuse does it (he? she?) have a name?
13:00 jcamins It's very exciting. My pseudo-sourdough on Sunday was a great success and I look forward to another pseudo-sourdough today, and in a week or two I'll be able to make real sourdough bread! :)
13:00 jcamins magnuse: not yet.

13:32 jcamins paul_p: I go back and forth on whether I want a bread machine or not.
13:34 paul_p jcamins, the bread machine is wonderfull to do the knead the dough. And awful to bake. I use it only for knead !
13:36 paul_p before going to bed = put the water & the flour & any specific flavour, program to be finished at 6:30AM. Wake up, get the dough & shape the loaf. Put it into the oven that you've heated just 3mn, got to bathroom, put clothes, shave your beard, wake up childrens, and you can bake the bread, it's ready (set the oven to "hot" ;-) )
13:37 paul_p just before leaving to school with childrens, the bread is ready ! (although too hot to be eaten, but it's perfect for lunch/dinner !)
13:37 jcamins Ooh, I like the idea of a bread machine with a timer!
13:37 sekjal joined #koha
13:37 * jcamins didn't realize they had fancy bread machines that did that.
13:39 oleonard Oh you bet, that's not even a new feature.
13:40 druthb mine has a timer.  I don't use it very often...hmmm.
13:40 jcamins druthb: you have a bread machine, and you don't use it?!? Sacrilege!
13:43 * jwagner has a bread machine and doesn't use it
13:44 jcamins Sacrilege!
13:44 druthb hm....   got a hungry for a good easy bread...wonder if I have everything I need for it.
13:45 jcamins Later this morning I am going to be kneading *by hand*... uhhhh... 2 kilos of bread, and you have bread machines sitting unused.
13:45 * jcamins shakes his head dolefully.
13:45 jwagner jcamins, want mine?
13:45 jcamins What is this world coming to?
13:46 jcamins jwagner: half the fun is kneading by hand. Also, I live in NYC and even in my beautiful big new kitchen there's no space.
13:46 jwagner I just don't eat that much bread, and a loaf goes stale.
13:46 kf I think even a bread machine can not knead 2kg of bread dough
13:46 jcamins kf: it can if you get a mixer that stands on the floor!
13:46 kf the ones I saw around here where rather small
13:49 magnus_outside is now known as magnuse
13:50 jcamins kf: the ones that will bake the bread are limited to 2lbs, but you can get a bread machine that just does the kneading.
13:53 jcamins I guess the large ones are just called "mixers."
13:53 druthb cleverly-named devices.
13:54 jcamins druthb: yeah yeah yeah. My mother's "bread machine" would now be termed a mixer, so my confusion is understandable, I think.
13:58 * oleonard visited a chocolate factory yesterday
13:58 magnuse ooh, chocolate...
13:59 oleonard Their motto was "We eat all we can and sell the rest"

14:42 oleonard On some pages Koha adds a special parser to the jQuery table sorter to exclude English articles ("the|an|a")
14:43 oleonard Should we add a system preference for that for other languages?
14:44 oleonard (<!-- TMPL_VAR NAME="articles" -->)
14:44 oleonard Doesn't this kind of sorting cause problems for French titles paul_p?
14:45 sekjal oleonard: making it pref controlled would allow for more than just articles... full stop-words lists could be configured
14:45 paul_p oleonard, yep, although no-one reported it until now !
14:45 paul_p I just discover this here thx to you !
14:45 paul_p oleonard++
14:45 paul_p (once again...)
14:46 jcamins What would happen if 942c were blank in every record?
14:46 oleonard sekjal: How might one want to expand it past articles?
14:46 sekjal oleonard: if the contents of the system preference was like BorrowersTitles, any set of words in any language could be added
14:47 oleonard yes, that is what I'm proposing
14:48 sekjal academics may want "Journal of" added to that non-sorting list, for example
14:48 magnuse hm, that functionality seems "dangerous" in a multi lingual catalogue... you want to exclude "the", but then tea is spelled "the" in some language etc
14:48 magnuse but anyway, letting individual libraries set it the way they want sounds like a good idea!
14:49 jwagner jcamins, if 942c is blank, and there are still places that check that (which there are), they'll use the first itype in your list
14:49 jwagner At least, that's my experience.
14:50 oleonard We should chase down those places in the code. Choosing the first itype in the list doesn't sound correct
14:51 jwagner I agree.  Those old fragments cause me more grief than almost anything :-(
14:52 sekjal It seems to me that Koha should try for items.itype first, then fall back to biblioitems.itemtype if no item-level type is found, then give a warning if that's blank
14:52 sekjal for biblios with many, many items, it would be a quick way to set a global default item type for them in a single place
14:52 jwagner And maybe, if an item record is created, populate biblioitems.itemtype (i.e., 942c) from that item?
14:52 jwagner Right now, you have to actively set it.

16:22 jcamins rhcl: Wayne Gisslen's Professional Baking.
16:23 kf oh sorry
16:23 kf was tracking down one of my coworkers :)
16:24 kf oleonard: have you ever tried mailto: links with a body in reports?
16:25 oleonard kf: No, I actually seldom use guided reports. Usually I write custom report pages for our intranet in PHP
16:25 kf ah
16:25 kf ok, I only thought you might have perhaps had a similar idea beofre
16:25 kf I am having trouble with the diacritics
16:27 wizzyrea rhcl and I have come up with a compelling reason to keep the notices tab and ditch the messaging tab
16:27 wizzyrea in the patron detail
16:29 sekjal wizzyrea and rhcl:  go on
16:29 wizzyrea sekjal you probably already have an idea about this
16:29 wizzyrea actually
16:29 wahanui rumour has it actually is since there are more regula updates
16:29 druthb wahanui: forget actually
16:29 wahanui druthb: I forgot actually
16:30 wizzyrea add a way to print or send those notices again
16:30 wizzyrea just a column with a link to print/resend
16:30 wizzyrea "on demand" would probably be your keyword
16:31 wizzyrea well a column with 2 options: one to print, one to re-send
16:32 rhcl yea, what she sez
16:34 wizzyrea we're obviously keeping the data that was in the notices
16:34 wizzyrea why not be able to use it?
16:38 kf wizzyrea: I am all for that, but I am still for combining both tabs and a nicer layout for the message
16:38 kf :)
16:38 kf and I am not sure both show all messages
16:38 wizzyrea well
16:38 wizzyrea what if
16:38 kf I also want to see the hold messages and check-out checkin
16:38 wizzyrea we kept the notices format for the list
16:38 wizzyrea and added the print/resend
16:38 kf yep
16:38 wizzyrea to see the message you would click print
16:38 kf or a pop up with formatted message
16:38 wizzyrea and it would be purty
16:39 kf wizzyrea++
16:39 kf wizzyrea: the only problem is print notices
16:39 kf they don't show up at the moment, because it's one line in the message_queue table

16:41 nengard what was the discussion (general topic)? documentation stuff?
16:41 wizzyrea well maybe it would be good to have all messages indicated here
16:41 wizzyrea in the messaging tab
16:41 wizzyrea or notices, whichever you choose
16:41 wizzyrea even ones that are for print
16:42 nengard read the log
16:43 nengard good ideas
16:43 wizzyrea is there a bug or rfc for this?
16:43 wizzyrea a birdie told me that on demand notices might already be in the works

16:44 wizzyrea cool beans
16:47 * jcamins pictures rhcl running around shouting "I'm a seagull."
16:47 wizzyrea bald eagle, probably, we have more of those here.
16:47 wizzyrea we do get the occasional lost seagull
16:48 kf umlauts--
16:48 kf diacritics--
16:48 jcamins (well, actually, rhcl is shouting "Ia chaika," but let's not get technical)
16:50 kf bye all
16:51 jcamins kf: wait! Don't go! Diacritics aren't so dire that you must make this final, irrevokable step.

17:20 jcamins B & N, on the other hand, is ubiquitous.
17:21 jcamins Oh, apparently there are a few in NYC.
17:21 wizzyrea I never liked our borders
17:22 * oleonard 's nearest Borders is spared
17:22 oleonard jcamins: According to the list, NYC has two which are closing
17:22 oleonard Probably because no one knew they were there ;)
17:24 nengard wizzyrea - why not?
17:24 nengard my borders is better than my B&N
17:24 jcamins oleonard: Funny how that works, isn't it?
17:25 wizzyrea ours was laid out very badly
17:25 wizzyrea and the books were more expensive there than any other bookstore in town

19:39 Brooke_ hhehehe
19:39 Brooke_ that is why I'm not entrusted with critical error messages
19:42 oleonard Speaking of error messages, the installer says on Step 2, "Please click Next to continue if this information is correct"
19:42 oleonard What if the information is not correct?
19:44 oleonard Should we offer a suggestion to the user?

20:04 rangi hmm
20:05 rangi there's no license on that

20:07 oleonard Anyone have any installer pet peeves besides the missing <label>s that were making me mad?
20:07 wizzyrea OH ME
20:07 wizzyrea me me
20:07 wizzyrea I think
20:07 wizzyrea that the installer should prompt you to set up the most important sysprefs at web installer time
20:08 wizzyrea * libraries
20:08 wizzyrea * patron categories
20:08 oleonard Sorry wizzyrea, just looking at markup (templates)
20:08 wizzyrea oh
20:08 * wizzyrea sulks a little. Gets over it.
20:08 wizzyrea but
20:08 wizzyrea the cat's out of the bag :)
20:09 gmcharlt wizzyrea: libs?  yeah?  patron categories?  maybe just a minimal set to start
20:10 gmcharlt I agree that we can afford to ask a few more questions during installation, but I think we should keep it limited so that time-to-running-Koha is not too long
20:10 sekjal installing the 3M SIP2 emulator on a virtual machine... so many layers
20:10 gmcharlt for more Q&A/wizard-based setup, maybe add it to administration
20:10 gmcharlt i.e., Koha initial configuration wizard
20:10 sekjal and Windows 7 is starting to tick me off
20:15 Brooke_ if we had an out of the box option for several Library types already done for folks, they could always twiddle later to customise.
20:17 rangi a wizard would be good
20:17 Brooke_ only if we name the installer Harry
20:17 rangi pick : special, small public, consortia etc
20:17 Brooke_ or Gandald
20:17 Brooke_ Gandalf even
20:17 rangi harry is weak!
20:18 space_librarian Voldemort!

20:18 space_librarian true. I realised that as soon as I spoke
20:18 Brooke_ we could name it Space Librarian
20:18 gmcharlt only if Space Librarians wear capes
20:19 Brooke_ not all Space Librarians are Super Librarians

21:18 wizzyrea you were working on envisionware a while back right?
21:19 sekjal wizzyrea:  I was trying to get the 3M SIP2 Emulator to work
21:19 sekjal so I could test my patch for SIP messages with Unicode
21:19 nengard anyone have any comments or sign offs for bug 3670 ?
21:20 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3670 trivial, PATCH-Sent, ---, nengard, REOPENED, Why is DUE all caps on enhanced messages
21:20 hdl left #koha
21:20 wizzyrea right right (aside, in a few weeks you'll have actual self checks to piddle with :))
21:20 wizzyrea aside from that
21:20 wizzyrea in your adventures with SIP
21:20 wizzyrea regarding how it sends the birthdate
21:21 wizzyrea did you have any experience with how that works with envisionware
21:21 sekjal wizzyrea:  not yet
21:21 sekjal is it sending in ISO?  or something else?
21:26 rhcl we're back to trying the rewritten Libki, hence my query about Kyle
21:27 wizzyrea ah
21:27 nengard Libki was re-written?
21:27 wizzyrea yea, without cake
21:27 rhcl oh yes, completely
21:27 rhcl we've just now setup the server and client, everything seems to work except the Koha integration
21:29 wizzyrea sekjal: I think that EW is expecting an "age"
21:29 wizzyrea instead of a birthdate
21:29 sekjal hmmm

22:20 rhcl sekjal: what does you SIP patch do?
22:21 LBA left #koha
22:21 sekjal rhcl:  it prevents SIP machines from crashing when checking out titles with diacritics
22:21 sekjal or, at least that's the intent
22:21 sekjal diacritics in a title or other bit of SIP message make checksum calculation all wonky
22:21 sekjal my patch just scrubs out any diacritical marks before writing
22:22 sekjal based it on the solution Evergreen came up with for the same problem
22:22 atz sekjal, this is because 3M didn't define SIP to deal w/ diacritics
22:22 atz bascially, their checksum algorithm is useless after we start pushing UTF8
22:24 sekjal atz:  does NCIP have the same limitation, do you know?
22:25 atz we weren't able to entirely "fix" this in evergreen either
22:25 atz see this test:[…]t/0001_checksum.t
22:25 atz run it w/ an arg like "1" to get verbose debugging output
22:26 atz does NCIP do any checksumming at all?  I suspect not.
22:26 atz really checksums were included because the original expected mode of communication was via SERIAL cable
22:27 sekjal ewww
22:27 atz modern network communication (TCPIP) already has checksums built in, and they aren't limited to ASCII or Microsoft code pages

22:35 rhcl so conceptually is there some better way than SIP/NCIP to query a remote db? Kyle must be doing something different with Libki.
22:37 sekjal rhcl:  for specific ILS systems, it's probably better to use whatever API they may have.  but SIP/NCIP are standards (more or less) that work well enough for a large enough number of systems
22:38 rhcl I was thinking Z39.60
22:40 sekjal good for getting bibliographic info, but not patron or circulation data
22:40 huginn New commit(s) kohagit: Merge remote branch 'kc/new/bug_2742' into kcmaster <[…]5d75ca868e8bc9bdc> / Bug 2742 Followup patch fixing Norwegian bokmål, adding nynorsk <[…]19e75d901df80b055>
22:41 rhcl ah, I'm disappointed. Thought somebody would query the .60, but I guess I was too subtle.
22:42 hudsonbot Starting build 369 for job Koha_Master (previous build: SUCCESS)
22:42 rhcl z39.60 is a new standard I'm proposing to replace SIP
22:42 rhcl guess it's time to go grab a cup of coffee...
22:44 sekjal rhcl:  thought it was already a standard in use... like Z39.50 for unicode.... obviously I was reading too much into the vague Google results
22:44 sekjal time for me to call it a night
22:56 bg SIP
22:56 bg just testing to see if atz has a keyword alert for SIP :)
