23:59 druthb            foster the children away somewhere outside Pennsylvania, so I won't have to listen to their shrieking....
23:58 druthb            It is not rational behavior for four adults to bring four spoiled preschoolers camping.  Can we get them committed to an institution for their foolishness?
23:56 jcamins_away      :)
23:56 druthb            my daughter has a mantra that seems to be helping her-- "I will never procreate...I promise never to procreate...."
23:55 druthb            thanks, Agent_Dani
23:54 * Agent_Dani      offers druthb a hug before that.
23:52 * druthb          is about to completely lose her Zen and freakin' go OFF.
23:51 druthb            o/
22:08 druthb            be well, libsysguy...good to talk to ya.  :)
22:08 druthb            well, I'm gonna boogie, and go cook up some dinner.  may reheat some leftovers before they go bad on us.
22:05 druthb            :)
22:05 libsysguy         mmm vbox goodness
22:05 druthb            I've got a virtualbox running debian in here, for koha workin'.
22:05 libsysguy         I've been thinking about getting a macbook air
22:04 druthb            of what a mac does.
22:04 libsysguy         but since the new unity plugin in ubuntu i've used it less
22:04 druthb            bg will pretty much get us what we want.  (and, natch, my hardware costs a *third
22:04 * libsysguy       dualboots ubuntu and windows
22:03 druthb            most of bywater is a mac shop...a couple are running ubuntu, and talljoy and I are running windows.
22:02 libsysguy         with the mac
22:02 libsysguy         i didn't know if you were like nengard
22:01 druthb            gateway n214.  runs great!
22:00 libsysguy         what kind of laptop do you have druthb
21:58 druthb            yep
21:57 libsysguy         as expected i suppose
21:57 druthb            works pretty well.  camp wifi is okay, but busy.
21:56 libsysguy         ahh
21:55 druthb            sprint u600
21:55 libsysguy         which one do you have?
21:55 libsysguy         hehe
21:55 * druthb          glares at her cell modem
21:53 libsysguy         so you were thinking this should go in the import patrons script?
21:53 druthb            if !exists, then it's a new one; add the patron.
21:52 libsysguy         right...setting all the matching hash vals to 0
21:52 druthb            if exists $patron{$incoming_cardnumber}, then update the borrower, and set $patron{$incoming_cardnumber} = undef;
21:52 druthb            here's my thinkin', libsysguy:  grab all the valid non-expired students, and put their cardnumbers in a hash.    $patron{$cardnumber} = 1;  Then spool thru your file...
21:51 druthb            :)  better
21:48 druthb            Let me switch to full size keyboard to flesh out idea.. Brb
21:47 libsysguy         ok laterz wizzyrea
21:47 wizzyrea          ok gotta get out for a few
21:47 wizzyrea          :)
21:47 druthb            :P
21:47 wahanui           druthb is probably currently convincing the amish that they need to web 2.0 or quite brilliant
21:47 wizzyrea          druthb?
21:46 wahanui           okay, wizzyrea.
21:46 wizzyrea          druthb is also quite brilliant
21:46 libsysguy         druthb - simply amazing
21:46 * druthb          is insane.  But it helps
21:46 libsysguy         you should have a slogan
21:46 libsysguy         druthb++ seriously
21:46 wizzyrea          druthb is quite brilliant
21:46 wizzyrea          ^^
21:45 druthb            Load all the koha card numbers into a hash then remove the ones from the incoming file..expire what is left
21:45 wizzyrea          it would be a handy script to be able to update any patron attribute from a list of cardnumbers
21:45 libsysguy         ill probably write a separate disable script
21:45 libsysguy         yeah...im still trying to figure out the logistics of how its going to all fit together
21:44 wizzyrea          hm
21:44 libsysguy         major performance killer
21:44 libsysguy         yeah...ouch
21:44 wizzyrea          ouch.
21:44 libsysguy         about 6500
21:44 wizzyrea          how many in each file?
21:43 libsysguy         yes ma'am
21:43 wizzyrea          student ID = cardnumber?
21:43 libsysguy         and emails
21:43 libsysguy         studentid's
21:43 libsysguy         yeah
21:43 libsysguy         cardnumbers
21:43 wizzyrea          student ID numbers?
21:42 wizzyrea          a list of names?
21:42 libsysguy         oh...and not touching the courtesy patrons
21:42 wizzyrea          what do you get?
21:42 wizzyrea          oo yea
21:42 libsysguy         thats true...but the hard part is finding the ones that are no longer in the "feed" i get
21:42 wizzyrea          so they'd be expired, but still existent (and subsequently easy to reinstate)
21:41 wizzyrea          to be the day before today
21:41 wizzyrea          hard
21:41 wizzyrea          that wouldn't be too hadr
21:41 wizzyrea          well you could set the expiration date on the patrons
21:41 libsysguy         i know....its a scripting nightmare
21:41 druthb            Hi wizzyrea
21:41 libsysguy         instead of deleting
21:41 wizzyrea          oh boy.
21:41 libsysguy         and yes...but im thinking about adding or blocking
21:41 libsysguy         yeah so we can only checkout to students who are "currently registered" if they drop then they lose their privileges
21:41 wizzyrea          so you have to add *and* delete every night?
21:40 druthb            Sheesh
21:40 libsysguy         apparently its a big deal
21:39 libsysguy         penny is super strick about who can check out books
21:39 druthb            :)
21:38 libsysguy         i know...it is also going to be handy for me since we will be updating valid patrons everynight
21:36 druthb            That would be handy for migrations
21:35 libsysguy         so im trying to rewrite the import borrowers script to work in the shell
21:34 druthb            :)
21:33 libsysguy         exciting!!
21:33 druthb            Pics of campsite and of me after makeover
21:32 libsysguy         uuu ok I'll tell her
21:32 druthb            I am gonna write a long one tonight or tomorrow
21:31 libsysguy         she is sad there haven't been any new blog updates :'(
21:30 druthb            Hi Anna!
21:30 libsysguy         Anna says Hi!
21:30 libsysguy         aww
21:28 druthb            Not this model.
21:28 libsysguy         complete with fireplace?
21:26 druthb            3 room cabin tent...  :)
21:26 libsysguy         and cookies...don't forget those lol
21:25 druthb            Yep.  We have a wizard tent.  She has her room and I have mine...
21:25 libsysguy         heh...is lindsey camping out with you?
21:24 * druthb          is a tenting nomad
21:24 druthb            <
21:24 druthb            Not yet
21:23 libsysguy         have you bought one yet?
21:23 libsysguy         :p
21:23 druthb            Not yet
21:23 libsysguy         are you pulling a camper with it?
21:23 druthb            All the storage is nice.  ;)
21:23 libsysguy         ohh gotcha
21:23 druthb            Nope.  Big service body.  Used to be owned by a water utility.
21:22 libsysguy         4x4?
21:21 druthb            Mine is the chevy equivalent...K2500
21:21 libsysguy         my little honda car gets about 27-29
21:21 libsysguy         yeah that is what my dad says about his f250
21:21 druthb            Yep.  My current ride gets a dismal 14.  Big pickups are like that
21:20 libsysguy         yeah the gas mileage is super nice
21:19 druthb            Decent on the highway too
21:19 druthb            :)  my gs was a nice commuter cycle
21:18 libsysguy         but it was still fun...and nice to have a windshield
21:18 libsysguy         it was a little small for my taste
21:18 libsysguy         i had a shadow before i had this one
21:18 druthb            If I was to get another bike, I would go for a shadow or a vstar
21:17 libsysguy         yeah its a lot of fun :)
21:17 druthb            Ooooo.
21:16 libsysguy         this is mine http://www.bikewalls.com/pictures/Honda_CBR1000RR_Repsol_2009_01_1920x1200.jpg
21:16 libsysguy         yeah i see that
21:16 druthb            Big heavy shafty.
21:15 druthb            1980 Suzuki Gs850gl.
21:15 libsysguy         really? what kind?
21:12 druthb            I used to have a motorcycle.
21:11 druthb            Heh
21:10 * libsysguy       drives pretty aggressively on his motorcycle
21:10 libsysguy         you might have a heart attack riding with me then
21:09 druthb            Nope.   I am very laid back behind the wheel, and rarely in any hurry
21:08 libsysguy         do you drive fast druthb
21:08 druthb            :)
21:07 druthb            Upset their horses when I pass them on the roadways
21:07 druthb            I try not to upse
21:05 druthb            Their faith is quite foreign to me, but their lifestyle resonates with this buddhist
21:04 libsysguy         fair enough
21:04 druthb            They lose a few as they grow up, sure...it is not for everyone.
21:03 libsysguy         i mean if they leave they are shunned right?
21:03 libsysguy         i take it most of them like it
21:02 druthb            Their way of life would seem strange to most modern people, but it has much to recommend it.  Low stress, slow pace...
21:02 libsysguy         so better than the city where everybody gives you that "i'll shank you smile"
21:01 druthb            This is an interesting place.  You cannot avoid interacting with the amish and mennonite folk here.  They are a quiet, serious folk, but very friendly and sincere.  Smile, and they smile back.
20:59 libsysguy         homemade cookies are even better...so i can imagine that those are super good
20:58 druthb            These are very tasty
20:58 * libsysguy       is a fat kid at heart
20:58 * libsysguy       loves cookies
20:57 druthb            Yep...cash only
20:57 druthb            Fresh picked sweet corn...bell peppers, small pack of chocolate chip cookies
20:56 libsysguy         do you pay with cash?
20:56 libsysguy         get anything good?
20:56 druthb            Went to a little mennonite farm stand earlier for veggies and baked stuff
20:55 libsysguy         sounds like nap time to me
20:54 druthb            Listening to the rain right now
20:54 libsysguy         :D
20:54 libsysguy         out of the good ol' tp and MRE's
20:53 druthb            This and that around the camp.  Went into lancaster for supplies earlier
20:53 libsysguy         what are you up to today?
20:52 libsysguy         hi druthb
20:49 druthb            o/

06:19 Agent_Dani        Anyhow, it's my bedtime. Nini
06:15 Agent_Dani        But, a lot has changed in the 17 years that have passed since I earned that degree.
06:13 Agent_Dani        I have an associate degree and a bunch of credits beyond.
06:12 Oak               ah
06:11 Agent_Dani        I'm more after the piece of paper and do need to consider what will work with my existing credits - I got 54 credit hours to transfer this time.
06:11 Agent_Dani        Tentatively CS but...I'm evaluating.
06:11 Oak               what will you do?
06:10 Oak               oh good Agent_Dani :)
06:10 Agent_Dani        Oak: I'm about to be a part-time student (again.)

06:07 Agent_Dani        Hey Oak

06:07 wahanui           well, Oak is Arslan. I am a student doing masters in Library Science (2nd semester). I am a web developer and work in Joomla.

04:36 * BrookeenTauride nods
04:36 Oak               because it's like a security bond... things get tough, sell the jewelry (after marriage I mean)
04:35 Oak               oh well, mostly parents buy gold jewelry for their daughters
04:35 BrookeenTauride   admittedly, I am after your rubies >.> <.<
04:35 BrookeenTauride   you guys dig gold way more than me, though
04:34 BrookeenTauride   yoink!
04:34 Oak               we have very nice jewelry in India and Pakistan :) you'll love it.
04:19 BrookeenTauride   Double duty free jewelry allocation ftw! 20k Rupee allowance = doable.
03:17 Oak               Hello BrookeenTauride :)
03:17 BrookeenTauride   hey there!
