10:21 paul_p I think we never beat NZ in baseball tho
10:22 paul_p (I even don't know if there have been a match btw F & NZ in baseball :D )

10:27 chris[…]-activities#top15
10:28 nahuel ^^
10:29 chris i still don't think you can count golf as a sport ... so that shouldnt be in the list IMHO :-)
10:29 nicomo still, golf nation
10:30 chris ive played 3,4,5,14,15
10:30 nahuel what about F1?
10:30 nahuel it's known as a sport
10:30 chris yeah i dont count motor racing either
10:30 chris or synchronised swimming
10:30 chris :)
10:32 chris we do have an incredible amount of golf courses tho
10:32 nicomo in France I guess cycling would come 1st
10:33 chris[…]-activities#top10
10:33 chris cycling 7
10:33 nicomo ok, got the stat for France
10:33 chris and 8
10:33 nicomo 1 - soccer
10:33 nicomo 2 - tennis
10:34 chris its funny tennis is 2 for both
10:34 nicomo 3 - horse riding (???)
10:34 chris ??
10:34 nicomo I kid you not
10:34 nicomo then judo, basketball, golf, handball
10:35 chris interesting
10:35 nicomo rugby comes in 9th
10:35 chris soccer i expected
10:35 chris but the rest i didnt
10:35 nicomo that's biased though : those are the stats for people registered in a club
10:36 nicomo stats for people just doing some sport here and there might be very different
10:37 chris yeah
10:37 nicomo and with that, I'm off to lunch
10:38 chris :)
10:47 nahuel nicomo, I think soccer is first in france
10:47 nahuel then cycling

12:42 gmcharlt out of curiosity, is anybody still using the Koha TweetKnot?
12:45 schuster Sounds painful...;)
12:46 schuster If I have a borrower attribute file and I need to import a whole new batch of "codes/descriptions" for that what would be the best options rather than typing all 3000 of them into the attribute code file?
12:47 jdavidb Hire student workers to type them all in?  That's better than *you* doing it..  :P  (kidding...)
12:48 schuster Oh great computer gods in the "cloud" how .... (kidding about the gods part but that's kinda what this is all like!)
12:48 jdavidb heh.
12:48 schuster ;)
12:49 schuster I have LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE .... - but I was thinking I should probably dump the data that is currently there - so truncate it first?
12:50 jdavidb I would think so, yeah, but that's not something I have wrestled with.
12:50 jdavidb Definitely something to do on test first!
12:51 schuster Oh don't you know it - why do you think I have 2 servers!

13:15 schuster Owen - new challenge question...  On the CKO screen below the picture where it would have address/phone etc... if I wanted to pull in a borrower attribute - Homeroom - is that possible with the fancy java scripts?
13:18 owen Unfortunately no
13:18 owen Javascript can only manipulate the data that's already onscreen
13:18 owen It can't pull from the database
13:20 schuster OK so that would be a "custom template" feature... drat - guess that would be the same with the hold slip wanting that particular attribute on the hold slip as well.
13:22 owen Yeah
13:25 nicomo_laptop left #koha
13:35 nicomo man, tells me I haven't been here for more than 20 days: that can be right
13:36 nicomo here: corrected
13:36 gmcharlt ?
13:36 gmcharlt :)
13:37 owen chris must have to re-run the stats manually. It hasn't been 6 days since I was logged in.
13:38 owen Hmm... although: "Statistics generated on Tuesday 25 August 2009 - 20:49:10 "
13:41 joetho left #koha
13:43 nicomo owen: maybe we should wake chris up
13:43 nicomo how come he's not here?
13:43 nicomo :-)
13:43 owen Yes, we demand that we be able to view personal statistics at all hours of the day!
13:44 owen I demand statistical validation!
13:45 slef afternoon all
13:46 nicomo hi slef
13:47 owen Hi slef
13:47 slef Is there any reason not to add ISSN to[…]ns/placing-orders ?
13:48 slef for one-off orders not subscribed
13:49 gmcharlt slef: adding ISSN makes sense to me
13:50 slef I'll give it a few minutes, then add an enh bug

17:02 zico h
17:02 zico hi
17:02 zico i am facing n annoying problem 4rm last few days
17:03 zico i hv bn running 3.0.1 in Debian 5.0 .. for last couple of months
17:03 zico everything went well...but... 4rm last few days... "Auto BarCode" generation is not working properly
17:04 zico what it does? as for example: I inserted my last book..nd it showed me the barcode 2699... nd.. just after tht... barcode started with 26700... nd... it goes with 26701...26702
17:04 zico how can i solve this problem???
17:04 zico can nyone please help me?
17:09 zico left #koha
17:09 gmcharlt zico: it checks the highest barcode that's out there, so
17:10 gmcharlt never mind...
17:11 slef impatience or network fault
17:13 gmcharlt anyway, for the record, it's possible that a typo may have been made, tacking on an extra '9' to '2699', resulting in '26999'
17:13 gmcharlt thereafter, autoBarcode picks up from the highest known barcode number

19:50 wajasu i'm working on installing koha 3.0.2 on an new ArchLinux x86_64 box.  (Apache2/MySQL5.1 are fine. Got to get my Perl modules installed though.
19:50 pianohacker archlinux++
19:51 pianohacker You will have to install a large chunk of the packages from CPAN, arch doesn't provide many of them as packages
19:53 wajasu I came to that conclusion yesterday.  I need to understand how the CPAN install should be for Arch.  Maybe I should use the panpan/makerepo tools that someone name xyne made to make packages.

21:09 gmcharlt hdl_laptop: expecting to push yesterday drop tonight
21:09 chris ahhh, yeah there is a lot
21:10 chris you have made my life a lot easier tho hdl_laptop with the move items patch
21:11 pianohacker Ah, speaking of such; I have my library's modifications up on github, for anyone who's curious:
21:12 chris sweet pianohacker
21:13 gmcharlt pianohacker: does that include the syspref stuff, or is that a separate branch?
21:14 pianohacker That's a separate branch on that same github
21:15 joetho how can I specify an offset in a cgibin pl page?
21:15 joetho like /cgi-bin/koha/admin/author​   ????
21:15 chris that will only work if that script is expecting that parameter joetho
21:15 joetho seeing these values 20 at a time is giving me grey hair
21:16 joetho therein lies the rub, Ranger Chris
21:17 joetho its ok if the value starts with an a.
21:17 joetho a w or z will take me forever.
21:17 joetho If I wanted to click and scroll that much I would go to facebook
