01:20 wasabi nah, def. this one ->
01:24 robin yeah, that seems appropriate
01:26 wasabi actually, im thinking of another scene, were they 'visit' laury? with the hair-piece...
01:27 robin I haven't seen that movie in approximately forever.
01:27 * robin adds it to my movie rental queue
01:28 wasabi wow. some crazy soft-rock metal on!

02:10 wasabi telstra have got some weird proxy-caching stuff happening today
02:11 wasabi stuff = problems
02:12 robin telstra has been quite broken in the past few days. I saw a great ping trace from earlier today that showed it being slow, and there was about 50% packet loss last night,.
02:14 chris yeah, ive been falling on and off irc
02:14 chris yesterday and the day before
02:16 robin they did some "up"grades, I hear.

02:57 robin It's probably pretty tricky to find an unbiased list out there. I haven't seen one, but I haven't looked, either.

09:17 chris just read your blog post
09:17 cait blog post? :)
09:17 chris heres the example i use
09:17 chris when ppl say koha is for small libraries
09:17 magnus about big koha libraries?
09:17 chris http://www.librarytechnology.o[…]
09:18 stephane1 francharb: hello françois, as-tu le temps pour discuter deux  minutes avec skype, c'est au sujet du guide de param ini
09:18 francharb stephane1: 2min
09:19 stephane1 francharb: oui c pas long mais plus simle à l'oral
09:19 magnus "The collection of the library contains 1416609 volumes. The library circulates 1177015 items per year." Cool! I must remember to include that in my future post about big koha libraries!
09:20 chris :)
09:22 magnus thanks chris
09:23 stephane1 francharb: il a été convenu avec paul et laurence d'insérer dans le guide apres chaque présentation du paramètre un renvoi vers le document "formulaires de paramétrage (tableur avec une feuille par paramètres), j'avais commencé à faire cela sur le document qu'avait fait nicolas (cf sous descartes/gestion projet_stephane_y document reunion orientation suivi projet;et ensuite j'ai appris que tu faisais un doc de param ini; ; l'idé

09:34 magnus "storm the size of Australia" :-( betterget that sort of thing over and done with before kohacon...
09:34 chris Blustery conditions would affect the entire North Island with severe gales likely about Wellington, Wairarapa and the tops of ranges, Mr Duncan said.
09:35 cait :(
09:37 larsw chris, um, I hope you all will be ok
09:39 chris pretty much happens at least once a year, my fence might blow over .. that happened last time, but thats probably about it
09:40 chris and i totally forgot to email you
09:45 cait ok, time to go to work
09:45 cait bbl :)
09:45 cait left #koha
09:45 larsw so you did
09:45 larsw I have a little time now... what was the question?
09:46 chris ahh, just was trying to work out a rule of thumb for adding to the copyright statement, ie, 3 lines or more .. 10 characters .. :)
09:47 chris or any change other than whitespace
09:47 larsw ah, that is a good question for each country's copyright judges :)
09:47 chris :)
09:48 larsw I would add it whenever applying a patch that can be considered to have required creativity of some sort
09:48 chris ah yep, thats a good idea
09:48 larsw i.e., just fixing a typo does not warrant a new copyright statement, but adding a new feature does
09:48 larsw between those there is a large grey area where your guess is as good as mine
09:50 chris *nod*
09:50 larsw many people consider it prudent to add one if there's doubt
09:50 chris seems the safest course
09:51 larsw but that's because we all live in fear of people using assault lawyers in jurisdictions with punitive damages
09:51 chris yeah
10:18 magnus chris: thanks for providing me with some great examples:[…]2Fnode%2F74&tl=en
10:19 magnus if there are any more good ones, i'll add them

11:04 kf can you say something about 3.2? I saw that Colin send a patch for the blocker bug.
11:05 kf looking at my calendar and wondering if we will be able to update our library before kohacon
11:05 gmcharlt yes - I'll check out Colin's patch later today
11:06 kf thx :)

11:34 ivanc kf any advice about RSWK?
11:35 kf ivanc: some notes perhaps
11:36 kf ivanc:[…]ormate/marc21.htm MARC21 at the DNB
11:37 kf ivanc: here is something about rswk in marc21[…]wk_in_marc_21.pdf
11:37 magnus and for the rest of us: what is rswk? ;-)
11:38 kf ivanc: we use a little program to convert the subject chains in 689 to single subjects, facetted search does not know about 689 - only about the 6xx fields from the marc21 standard
11:38 kf Regel für die Schlagwortkatalogisierung
11:39 kf magnus: uh, not easy to explain. something like loc headings - rules for cataloging the content of a work
11:39 magnus i see!
11:39 kf magnus: using subject chains (schlagwortketten) and a controlled vocabulary
11:41 kf magnus: you can match the different types to 6xx fields, but Koha can't really deal with the chains at the moment. It works much better with single subjects
11:41 ivanc magnus: about a question from  yesterday
11:42 ivanc kf: tnks a lot
11:42 magnus schlagwortketten - that sounds painful somehow...
11:42 ivanc magnus: true :)
11:44 kf ivanc: we have authorities loaded into koha, what you need to know is, that the control number of the authority needs to be in $9 instead of $0, and you need to make koha use the 001 from the authority record as auth_header.authid
11:44 kf ivanc: authid is numeric... so we kill the last number of the authority control numbery everywhere (can be X)
11:44 kf if you do all that, it works quite good
11:44 kf you can see it in our catalogs
11:45 kf ivanc: koha can't expand the search to the see and see also fields, so you need to use the specia authority search to find those
11:45 kf ivanc: but if you find one title with your subject you can click on the link, it will search with the control number and find all other titles
11:45 ivanc kf: tnks!!!!
11:46 kf hope my explanations were understandable :)
11:46 ivanc kf: yet I was only interested  if applicable
11:46 kf ok... :)
11:47 kf yeah, with some limits yes
11:47 ivanc kf: with some limits is better as no :)
11:47 kf perhaps check one of our teacher libraries, the marc view is active there and you can see better what we did to the records
11:48 kf in fact I would say using single subjects will work, using subject chains will need some work
11:49 laurence left #koha
11:49 kf ivanc: here is one example with single rswk subjects: https://seminar-stuttgart.bsz-[…]iblionumber=13758
11:50 kf magnus: and you are right, the schlagwortketten are painful
11:51 kf magnus: und using a local field like 689 seems not like a real good solution to me, but at least there is a standard way to do it

12:56 brendan morning all
12:57 owen Hi brendan
12:58 brendan heya owen
12:58 * owen just learned about this:
12:58 * owen heard from a Koha library which is testing it
12:58 Braedon Currently, LibraryAnywhere only supports Google Chrome, Apple Safari, or Mozilla FireFox 3.6 (or higher)
12:58 * Braedon is on firefox 4.0
12:59 Braedon is 4.0 not higher than 3.6 anymore?
13:02 logbot joined #koha
13:02 Topic for #koha is now reminder: send nengard koha newsletter articles/tips/tricket/news/ etc ASAP!
13:02 Braedon most not at all
13:02 Braedon can't work out what it is supposed to be
13:03 Braedon but whenever i go to it, and sometimes to as well, it has it
13:03 Braedon it detects i am in NZ, as it has a Go to Google New Zealand link
13:03 Braedon but gives me it regardless
13:05 Braedon apparently it is Cherokee http://webapps.stackexchange.c[…]omepage-set-there
13:06 Braedon which makes absolutely no sense. Why does it think i want Cherokee?
13:06 Braedon anywho, sorry for the offtopic. been bugging me a while...
13:09 OpenUser Hello, I have the following problem when checking out an item
13:09 OpenUser No branchcode argument to new.  Should be C4::Calendar->new(branchcode => $branchcode) at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/ line 2411
13:09 OpenUser Koha version 3.06 - any ideas?
13:16 Braedon if i remember correctly that was a bug in 3.06 - need to change that $branchcode to $branch
13:16 Braedon or something like that...
13:16 Braedon it was 9 months ago
13:16 Braedon anyone else remember it?
13:17 OpenUser oh...maybe I'll check the bug DB.....thanks for the pointer.
13:17 Braedon looking at the current git, looks like it has been changed to $branch[…]fcf;hb=HEAD#l2542
13:19 sekjal joined #koha
13:21 OpenUser Great.....will I be OK just changing that in the file or do you think there will be other places that need changing?

13:32 collum joined #koha
13:32 tcohen hi all, i'm having some issues with authorities searching
13:32 tcohen specifically " oAuth error: Unsupported Use attribute (114) Any Bib-1"
13:33 tcohen when searching "anywhere"
13:33 tcohen I know this has been an issue several times
13:34 tcohen but can't find doc on that so it can be fixed (forever)
13:38 druthb joined #koha
13:42 OpenUser My is already set to $branch ??
13:43 jcamins tcohen: Did you try reindexing?
13:44 tcohen jcamins: yes
13:44 tcohen several times
13:45 tcohen jcamins: should it work out.-of-the-box?
13:46 tcohen i'm on 3.0.6, btw
13:46 kf hi jcamins :)
13:46 magnus left #koha
13:47 tcohen should an 'Any' attribute be defined in authorities/etc/bib1.att ?
14:00 jcamins tcohen: sorry about the delay. I'm not sure. We're using 3.1.143.
14:00 tcohen jcaminsS: thanks
14:00 tcohen i'll be trying to figure it out
14:02 jcamins[…]g/koha/2009-07-19
14:03 jcamins tcohen: ^^ it's like a virtual gmcharlt suggesting how to fix it :)
14:04 tcohen :-D
14:05 jcamins Bug 3072
14:05 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3072 major, P5, ---, gmcharlt, NEW, 'Heading-Main' authority-index breaks authority searching in STABLE
14:06 jcamins tcohen: ^^ that might fix it
14:07 jcamins Eventually I'll remember to ping you on the messages I send, rather than right after.
14:13 OpenUser Hey, does anyone know what the holdingbranch column is in the items table? I see the problem I am having is because my holdingbranch and some homebranch are NULL, but before I do an update on the table I would like to know what I'm changing!!
14:13 sekjal OpenUser:  homebranch is the branchcode of the library that owns the material.  Holdingbranch is the branchcode of the library that current has it
14:13 sekjal often, they're the same
14:13 sekjal unless the item was transferred
14:14 OpenUser Thanks, its a single branch library so there shouldn't be any problems updating the table and setting them both to the branch code??
14:15 sekjal if you've only the one branch, then yes, that makes life much simpler
14:16 sekjal if you change the items table directly, you'll need to resync the MARC before the info will show up properly in the Zebra index, though
14:17 ebegin Quick question:  as far as I can tell, there is no table in Koha to keep track of claims, right?
14:17 sekjal ebegin: don't know of one
14:18 OpenUser Thanks.....can you explain what you mean by Resync the MARC?
14:19 sekjal the Zebra index gets all it's information from the MARC record, including item information
14:19 sekjal if you manually change the database values, the MARC fields don't get changed
14:20 sekjal so you need to run the script /misc/maintenance/
14:20 sekjal then reindex
14:20 OpenUser Great....that makes sense....thanks for your help
14:20 * owen really thought there was already a bug report for Bug 5220...
14:20 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5220 normal, P5, ---, oleonard, NEW, subjects with xslt on only search first part
14:20 sekjal OpenUser: glad to be of service!
14:23 jwagner owen, there is, but it's misleadingly named.  Looking for it now.
14:23 owen Thanks jwagner, I was about to ask you. I remembered the bug as having your comments
14:24 jwagner Is collum online? He wrote a partial fix for it.
14:25 kf ebegin: perhaps in one of the logs, there is letter log for claims
14:26 kf ebegin: I am not sure if it's actually doing something and if yes - serials or acq?
14:26 ebegin kf, good catch.  I'll check if it's use and if I could use that
14:27 kf ebegin: :)
14:27 ebegin kf++
14:27 ebegin (you deserve it)
14:27 jwagner owen, Bug 4276 -- someone marked it as Fixed but it's only partially fixed.
14:27 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=4276 critical, P5, ---, gmcharlt, RESOLVED FIXED, "Related subjects" search is OPAC doesn't work with chained subject terms
14:27 kf thx :)
14:28 owen marked as fixed just a few days ago. Timely :)
14:28 ebegin kf, it's even better than I thought.  The generated message is logged!
14:29 kf for which module?
14:29 jwagner I haven't had time to go back and work on 4276 any, to try to strip out the parens & other special chars.  When I tried earlier, I wasn't able to figure out how to do it.
14:30 Nate joined #koha
14:30 kf jwagner: perhaps I can take a look some time - I think perhaps translate()
14:35 owen jwagner: It looks like it is indeed working in 3.0.6. I'll compare the XSL files to see if I can see what's going on
14:40 tajoli joined #koha
14:43 collum jwagner: I'm here.  But it doesn't look like you need me anymore.  :)
14:44 owen The fix in 3.0.6 works for HEAD, although it doesn't give us the same kind of fine-grained links in the normal display (being able to search on separate parts of the chained subject)
14:44 jwagner Awwww.  We always need you collum!
14:47 collum Thanks.  I meant it looked like your question was answered.
14:47 jwagner Yes, but I couldn't pass up the opening :-)
14:49 * collum turns red
14:49 owen Oh no, he's furious with you for summoning him without cause!
14:50 * owen cowers
14:50 jwagner Avaunt!
14:53 * collum finds the imprecise English language fascinating.

17:24 wizzyrea I think
17:24 wizzyrea instead of .hide()
17:25 cait hm or perhaps change the attribute
17:25 cait so it's not hidden but something else
17:27 tcohen jcamins: the problem got resolved when I switched to grs1 for authorities!
17:28 tcohen there's something wrong with 'dom'
17:28 tcohen it shouldn't be suggested as prefered during install

17:54 jcamins Hello.
17:54 ccurry Can somebody tell me whether Koha's MySQL database is using InnoDB or MyISAM?
17:55 jcamins I think InnoDB, but that's just off the top of my head.
17:55 jcamins You'd be better off checking with someone who knows.
17:56 ccurry I've been googling this, but can't find a way to query the database to find out.
17:56 jcamins InnoDB.
17:56 ccurry Wait...are you sure now, then?
17:57 jcamins Yes.
17:57 ccurry OK.  Thanks.
17:57 jcamins You're welcome.

18:55 chris jcamins: you should add the new RDA fields while you are changing the framework :)
18:56 cait jcamins: and the fields added for Germany/mab2
18:56 chris or at least make a RDA framework which is the default, but with
18:56 ivanc joined #koha
18:57 chris 336, 337, and 338 are the new ones, to replace 245h
18:58 jcamins I think at the moment I'm just adding 545 to my Archives framework.
18:58 chris :)
18:58 jcamins And I'll submit a bug so that the next person who wonders will see that it's a known issue.
19:00 jcamins Aren't wasabi and cait going to be overhauling the default framework at KohaCon?
19:00 cait can't we make some librarians do it? *hides*
19:01 jcamins cait: you _are_ a librarian. :D
19:02 cait no, I am a developer
19:02 jcamins Okay, that's *really* weird.
19:02 cait ask magnus
19:02 cait hm you perhaps missed some of our conversations
19:02 jcamins No, I heard.
19:02 jcamins But you're _also_ a librarian.
19:02 cait we decided yesterday we will wear the hat that fits best ;)
19:02 jcamins What's really weird is what happens when you create a field 545 in your framework.
19:02 cait ok, I am willing to overhaup the marc framework - but not at kohacon
19:02 cait it will take like forever
19:03 jcamins If you add the MARC21 field 545, it's automatically populated with the correct subfields.
19:04 cait huh
19:04 cait hm, a missing line in the sql perhaps?
19:04 jcamins I guess.

19:47 reva hi again, can anyone help with entering serial holdings? What exactly does it do when I check manual history in subscription?
19:48 owen I like how he leads with telling us how mean we all are.
19:48 cait you can add older issues there
19:48 chris_n still the old "take charge" approach
19:48 chris_n *sigh*
19:48 cait manipulate it, but koha will put things in there too (afaik)
19:49 chris I hope that no one falls for it
19:49 reva cait: you mean like compress holdings (example: v.2 -v.5, 1975-1978)?
19:49 chris And validates the approach by joining in
19:50 cait your holdings before you started using the serials module
19:50 cait I think koha will add entries for new issues
19:50 sekjal I wonder if the KUDOS email to the LL list kicked this off in any way...
19:50 cait my coworker is working on the serials module - so I am no expert here
19:51 chris Also the committee was not formed to hold assets
19:51 nengard sekjal, i don't know that i got that email - about kudos
19:51 chris Hlt was voted to hold them, subcomittee formed to ask for them back
19:51 nengard just fyi
19:52 * chris_n thinks maybe a answer of resounding silence might be the most effective response
19:52 chris_n s/a/an/
19:52 reva ok, I will try it. I also have questions on advance serial patterns. For example, I am not sure how to enter the Yr {Z} various rows (such as inner count ,set back) ; the example in the FAQ is too cryptic about these two rows.
19:52 chris Yeah
19:53 chris I could fisk it, almost every point is wrong
19:53 reva cait: may be your coworker can help me?
19:53 owen Too late chris_n, I've already responded.
19:53 chris And add that they still are pursuing trademarks
19:53 nengard i think the problem is thinking that Koha is a US thing - it's a worldwide thing
19:53 cait reva: she is not on irc, but I can ask her
19:53 chris And attempted to blackmail us
19:53 chris_n nengard: I tend to agree
19:53 cait perhaps next week - she is not working full time
19:53 nengard and the foundation that is formed - when it's formed needs to be just that
19:53 nengard international
19:54 wizzyrea perhaps someone should send him mat mullenweg's post re: the wp trademark :P
19:54 nengard chris_n this is certainly something we (americans) do in all walks of life, but it's not hard really to learn that we're not the center of the universe
19:54 nengard wizzyrea I'm sure they're watching twitter - quietly - but watching - and saw us all post that
19:55 reva Please do; as I am having problems filling in the patterns. Also, I thought I could avoid this subscription business altogether and manually enter an item record for each issue received under the same bib record. But it does not show 952 $h field at all when I do that!
19:55 chris My stop
19:55 * chris_n heads home
19:55 reva cait: Thanks. I always wait with you till next week, right?:)
19:55 nengard also i think someone needs to share my chapter on community and participation in communities from my open source book - what was defined in that email does not equal participation
19:56 reva left #koha
19:56 reva joined #koha
19:58 reva sorry cait: I got kicked out. Thanks, I will wait for you to find out. But I was just saying: when I manually create item records for each issue received (thus bypassing subscription creation), on the OPAC under normal view it does not show the 952 $h field (which is serial enumerationa dn chronolgy).
19:59 cait reva: I m at home now - can't do something
20:00 cait about your problem, and too tired to start testing now.
20:00 cait perhaps you can make some example serials, add some issues and take a look how the manual history changes.
20:01 cait reva: w hich version are u using?
20:01 cait we use this field and it shows in our opac
20:01 cait imported records, without serals

20:08 chris back
20:08 francharb left #koha
20:08 reva cait: I also think that should not make a difference. But I notice you do not show any MARC view in your OPAC. Would it help me to look at the example in MARC view or the 950s are not shown in the MARC view since they are locally defined?
20:09 cait reva: we are not showing it and I can't login now to change the settings
20:10 cait can not tell you before tomorrow - sorry. perhaps you can try to change the header or someone else can help.
20:11 collum left #koha
20:11 reva cait: I will wait; I will summarize my issues: 952 $h does not display for under normal view. (It shows when I look at the expanded MARC view). And the advance serial predication pattern poses issues when I enter year Yr {Z}.
20:12 cait reva: you can download the example as marc from the catalog, should give you all fields
20:13 reva cait: I only see Print but no button for saving it in any format.
20:14 reva cait: it is Koha  3.0.6
20:14 cait in our installation
20:14 cait the example I showed you, you can download it there to see the mark fields
