18:47 liz_nekls librarians = very opinionated
18:47 chris2 :)
18:47 chris2 clients = very opinionated :-) it's not just librarians
18:47 chris2 often they expect us to be telepathic also
18:50 liz_nekls oi telepathy
18:55 slef gmcharlt: if you can't use OpenOffice's export to web features, with notes included is as good as I've seen
18:55 slef downloading originals requires a login, which sucks

02:44 pianohacker Hello!
02:44 nahuel pianohacker: you're in plano ?
02:45 pianohacker We just had dinner together (I'm Jesse)
02:45 nahuel ho !
02:45 nahuel jesse !
02:46 nahuel great
02:46 nahuel tonight it'll be some thunderstorm
02:46 nahuel :s
02:46 pianohacker Ack
02:46 nahuel and tomorow rain
02:46 nahuel too bad after a great day like today
02:47 pianohacker Yeah; they were expecting bad weather, I guess it just got delayed
02:47 nahuel and sun-day they are planning sun-ny ;)
02:48 pianohacker Ah, quite nice! :)
02:48 pianohacker Does that pun work in french, as well?
02:48 nahuel "pun" ?
02:48 nahuel what does it mean ?
02:48 pianohacker Hrm
02:49 nahuel so ?
02:50 pianohacker Wiktionary says calembour, or jeu de mots
02:50 nahuel oh ok
02:50 nahuel no, because sun is "soleil" and sunday is "dimanche"
02:51 pianohacker ah
02:51 nahuel and sunny "ensoleillé"
02:51 nahuel well, english is funny, you can create words
02:52 nahuel (in french too, but for a french it's more funny to create frenglish words)
02:52 pianohacker Hehe
02:53 nahuel don't remember, you're staying for the week-end ,
02:54 nahuel ?
02:54 pianohacker Yes
02:54 pianohacker Might do an informal demonstration of some work I have been doing with AJAX
02:55 nahuel great
02:55 nahuel you're using YUI ?
02:55 pianohacker jQuery actually
02:55 nahuel ok
02:56 pianohacker Could have gone with either, since Koha does use both
02:56 nahuel to perform ajax queries ?
02:56 pianohacker I'm just more familiar with jQuery. Do you have a preference either way?
02:56 pianohacker Koha uses both just for general javascript tasks
02:57 nahuel i prefer yui, it's more ...
02:57 nahuel hmmm evolutive
02:57 nahuel jquery is more like a "tool"
02:57 nahuel yui is like a framework
02:58 nahuel you can approximatly do what you want with all the framework
02:58 pianohacker Yeah
02:58 nahuel (american tv is... not so fun! too much advert!)
02:58 pianohacker I can't argue with you. I don't watch much TV myself
02:59 nahuel me too, but well we're trying american culture ;)
03:00 nahuel ahah now the mighty bush
03:01 pianohacker Oh dear
03:01 pianohacker might be easier if you pretend you didn't see that
03:02 nahuel ahah
03:02 nahuel well paul is "zapping" every 10 secs
03:02 nahuel so we can't see anything
03:11 nahuel well pianohacker
03:11 pianohacker Yah?
03:11 nahuel it's time for us to sleep
03:11 pianohacker That doesn't sound like a half bad idea
03:12 nahuel ahah
03:12 pianohacker See you tomorrow (goodnight paul!)
03:12 nahuel well usually i' go to sleep more later
03:12 nahuel but jetlag make his effect when the sun is gone
03:12 nahuel have a good night pianohacker
03:13 pianohacker (jetlag does suck)
03:13 pianohacker you too
