14:08 thd Elwell_ this human had needed sleep.  Very unfortunate to have such needs.  Actually, I still need sleep.
14:48 wizzyrea is there a way to put the intranet into maintenance mode?
14:48 Snow_Fox get a senator to complain about tubes?

14:50 wizzyrea hdl_laptop: i like your style
14:50 hdl_laptop was kidding ;)
14:51 wizzyrea it's kind of like using a nailgun when a hammer will do
14:51 wizzyrea I was thinking more along the lines of the koha fail whalw
14:51 hdl_laptop but you could disable the site and reload.
14:51 wizzyrea whale*
14:52 hdl_laptop There is no maintenance mode for intranet
14:52 hdl_laptop atm
14:52 wizzyrea but, can't have everything you want
14:52 wizzyrea okies, ty

14:52 paul_p (hello others too, anyway ;-) )
14:52 wizzyrea hi!
14:52 hdl_laptop because maintenance screen was first written for opac and webinstaller
16:08 schuster Howdy folks - anybody here know about LDAP setup I have a couple of questions.
17:57 wizzyrea gmcharlt re: OpacSuppression, you said turning on the OpacSuppression syspref enables the capability to suppress OPAC display of individual records.
17:57 wizzyrea which records? Item records?
17:57 wizzyrea (sorry if you've been over this a zillion times in the last couple of days)
18:01 wizzyrea [12:57p] wizzyrea:
18:01 wizzyrea which records? Item records?
18:01 wizzyrea doh
18:01 wizzyrea ^>^
18:43 wizzyrea i'm looking at the moremember-receipt template, and it looks like it should be showing today's date, but it doesn't seem to be appearing on our printouts. I looked in the .pl to see where it was defined, and it looks like it doesn't exist? Is it defined somewhere else?

09:05 thd indrag: when will WBUT have a Z39.50 server?
09:12 thd indradg: hello
09:12 indradg thd, a very good question that i have no answer to atm, however a new installation should have one running in a month's time
09:22 greenmang0 indradg: hello
09:23 indradg greenmang0, y0!
09:24 greenmang0 indradg: i heard about you from anasha
09:25 greenmang0 indradg: we are developing a portal for promoting koha in india...
09:25 indradg greenmang0, i'm aware of that
09:25 greenmang0 indradg: oh.. :)
09:25 greenmang0 that's great
09:26 hdl_laptop hi indradg
09:26 greenmang0 we have also developed a method of installing Koha over Debian ... without CPAN.. making Koha installation completely offline
09:26 indradg hdl_laptop, hi :)
09:27 indradg greenmang0, yep... read the docs you guys have posted up
09:28 greenmang0 indradg: and now working on remastering Debian for Koha... so that we can circulate just on CD or DVD from which Koha along with Debian can be installed
09:28 greenmang0 s/on/one
09:29 greenmang0 indradg: making koha installation as easy as possible... and that is also offline
09:30 indradg greenmang0, we are talking about 32-bit x86 arch only?
09:30 chris would be good to see if you could help out finishing the debian packages for koha too
09:30 greenmang0 indradg: right now... yes
09:31 greenmang0 indradg: but.. ones we are done with this.. we can surely try other ports
09:31 indradg greenmang0, have you messed around with 64-bitness mess that perl deps can land you in yet?
09:31 indradg :p
09:34 greenmang0 indradg: :) no not yet
09:35 indradg greenmang0, with any luck, those should fun times
09:35 indradg :)
09:35 greenmang0 indradg: but we can surely work on that ...
09:35 greenmang0 indradg: this is one of the interest areas of ours
09:35 greenmang0 indradg: anasha is insisting from a long time
09:36 greenmang0 indradg: we are ready to have FUN
09:36 indradg greenmang0, what we need to get is koha into the debian main tree as a mainline package
09:36 greenmang0 indradg: apt-get install koha :)
09:37 chris tons of work has been done on that already
09:37 chris it just needs to be finished
09:37 greenmang0 indradg: actually none of our customers who asked us for FREE koha DVDs.. asked for x86_64 arch
09:38 greenmang0 chris: i see
09:38 chris[…]oha.git;a=summary
09:41 greenmang0 indradg: chris: what to you think... when will it be available as a mainline package?
09:44 chris when someone finishes it
09:44 chris vincent doesnt have time
09:44 greenmang0 chris: :)
09:44 chris but he is willing to sponsor it, and has done lots of the work, it just needs someone to finish it off
09:45 indradg chris, copy that
09:45 indradg chris, but how would the commit workflow go? via vincent?
09:46 indradg getting a commit access to debian git can be difficult... :P
09:46 chris yep
09:46 chris via vincent, or another dd
09:46 chris if someone did a job, it would be a chance to become a dd themselves
09:47 soul9 heya mason
09:48 mason heya back john
09:48 mason hows your plan9 going these days?
09:48 chris s/did a job/did a good job/
09:49 mason john runs plan9 as his desktop box...
09:51 |Lupin| hello !
09:51 soul9 haha, plan9 is doing great, there is actually quite a surge of activity and new developpers
09:52 mason cool, i gotta install it on a spare box sometime soon
09:53 soul9[…]s/hare.index.html
09:53 soul9 :D
09:53 maja where can I find sites of libraries that use Koha OPAC
09:53 soul9 it's running on BG/L and BG/p, theyre also talking about a port to the roadrunner
09:53 |Lupin| does plan 9 have a command-line interface, or is it purely graphical ?
09:54 mason lol, of course lupin
09:54 soul9 well, there is a console if you don't launch rio in cpurc/termrc, but it's very limited
09:54 |Lupin| soul9: what do you mean by limited ?
09:54 mason i lalways loved glenda, the bunny :)
09:56 soul9 well, limited means that there is no interrupt key, for example. also, there aren't really any apps that are usefull by themselves on the console, in plan9, most editors and apps are graphical
09:56 soul9 why do you want a console when you can have the best windowing environment of them all?
09:56 soul9 </flame>
09:56 maja |Lupin|: plan 9 is primarily command line
09:57 soul9 it is primarily command line, but on top of rio, the window manager
09:57 |Lupin| soul9: because I'm blind and a indowing system is more an obstacle than an advantage for me
09:57 mason maja: has a list of sites runnign koha
09:58 mason ahh, good answer lupin
09:58 |Lupin| :)
09:59 mason do you use a text to speech application?
09:59 |Lupin| no
09:59 |Lupin| brltty
10:00 |Lupin| lunch time
10:00 soul9 |Lupin|: ah, i understand. well, there are too few developpers to develop that kind of stuff for plan9 for now, but as i said, davaloppers are joining our forces daily, and a lot of gnu can be ported to plan9.
10:00 soul9 ;)
10:01 mason brltty looks amazing!
10:01 maja |Lupin|: there is channel for plan 9 on IRC ser5ver. you can join guys and ask questions
10:02 maja mason: yes, indeed, but I see them only on maps but not their site. I guess there must be somwehere list of sites too, not only users with their geographical locations
10:04 kf maja: look here and here[]=world
10:06 kf maja: and (in advanced search you can search for ILS, but its divided by different companies for Koha)
10:49 chris heres a trick
10:49 chris just type koha into the field
10:49 chris it will find all of them that way
10:50 chris (ie instead of picking one)
11:05 |Lupin| back !
11:05 |Lupin| Bhi gm, chris
11:32 |Lupin| quick perl question please
11:33 |Lupin| is there a function that behaves like grep but also removes the elements for which the expr is true from the original list ?
11:34 |Lupin| or perhaps a partitionning function which takes a predicate and a list and returns a pair of lists: one of elements for which the pred is false, the other for elements for which the pred is true
11:34 kf chris: thx for the tip!
11:34 ebegin |Lupin|, you want to parse a complete directory or line by line?
11:35 |Lupin| ebegin: I have a perl list and want to split it in two lists given a predicate
11:36 |Lupin| ebegin: nothing to do with directories... it's just a general perl question I think
11:38 ebegin |Lupin|, can you give un an example of input and predicate?
11:39 |Lupin| well
11:39 |Lupin| predicate may be "this number is prime" and thne a list of numbers
11:39 |Lupin| so t would give back two lists
11:40 |Lupin| one of all the prime numbers
11:40 |Lupin| the other of all the non-prime numbers
11:42 ebegin oh... and you want to enter the predicate as a phrase like that?
11:43 |Lupin| ebegin: no
11:43 |Lupin| a block, an expression, whatever
11:44 |Lupin| on freenode#perl ppl suggested split, but it splits only strings
11:45 ebegin do you have a function to test each element of your list with the predicate?
11:49 |Lupin| yes
11:49 |Lupin| actually
11:49 |Lupin| it's the List::MoreUtils function that does what I want...
