16:39 waylon Okay.. need to make a script doing: for each file *.pl and *.pm, on the second line (first line being shebang), insert 'use lib' line.
16:41 waylon or i could find a global file editing tool. :)
16:49 waylon or, one can use find + xargs....
16:49 waylon http://www.healyourchurchwebsi[…]chives/000080.php
16:49 waylon Time to boot up my linux box.
17:44 waylon ah...
17:44 waylon find -name "*.pl" | xargs perl -pi -e "s/(bin\/perl)/bin\/perl\nuse lib \'\/home\/www\/wayrob.freeho​\/modules\'\;\n/gi";
17:44 waylon it was all over in a second.
17:45 waylon All modules have the 'use strict' line?
18:03 waylon modules done. now, on to editing the templates, to fit a scriptalias'less enviroment.
20:19 tnb paul: what is the url for SAN-OP's catalog?  (hi, BTW :)
20:58 waylon Okay. uploading template files now.... seems to be going well. will know if this one virtual host system will work, soon.
21:49 waylon well.... uploaded and that works.
02:00 waylon Well.. i did it.
02:00 waylon having used a free website host... Apache, mysql and perl, running on linux.... but that doesn't really matter.
02:01 waylon having no superuser access, just a normal user.
02:01 waylon no scriptalias.
02:01 waylon no virtual hosts.. so only one address.
02:01 waylon no PERL5LIB set, so i had to edit the .pl's and the .pm's using find and xarg..
02:02 waylon no shell access, so all mysql was imported via phpmysql.
02:02 waylon despite all these limitations.. koha is working!
02:11 waylon chris.. check your private messages on irc.
02:12 waylon and now that ive set up a free host, im going out for dinner... shutting down my computer. ah.. cool.

02:58 kados where they fill the veins and arteries with a polymer that's acid resistant
02:58 chris ohh
02:58 kados and then pour acid in
02:59 kados all you're left with is the polymer
02:59 kados it's amazing

03:03 kados they are huge
03:03 chris yep
03:03 kados I spent friday afternoon talking to the guys setting up the huge booths
03:03 kados most of them were contractors that designed the booths and set them up as a full time job
03:03 kados as contractors
03:03 chris right
03:04 kados they get between 150 and 200K to build one
03:04 chris thats why they have to charge so much for the software
03:04 kados plus 15K per show to set them up abd break them down
03:04 kados yea
03:06 chris and the fulltime salary of conference booth people :)
03:06 kados yea
03:07 chris one of the main comments we always get
03:07 chris is how refreshing it is to be able to talk to people who actually work on the software
03:07 kados yea, normally they are so insulated
03:07 kados we had a developer from serials solutions stop by and essentially say the same thing
03:08 kados apparantly this is the first time in like 2 years he's even spoken to users
03:08 chris right
03:08 chris normally there is about 3 of 4 layers
