07:12 chris thd-away: are you about?
07:15 chris i was replying to lori not david
07:15 chris you have misread my message
07:16 chris id appreciate if you didnt misquote me like that
07:19 kmkale joined #koha
07:19 kmkale hi all
07:19 chris hi kmkale
07:24 kmkale hi chris
07:25 chris i see a new patch :) hopefully you will get some more good comments :)
07:26 kmkale yes. Mike's comments helped.
07:28 kf hi chris and kmkale
07:28 chris hi kf
07:28 kmkale Who should I request to test it and sign off. I dont think anyone on list has Libsuite8 data :(
07:29 kmkale hi kf
07:29 chris you might have to attach some sample records to the bug
07:29 chris that people can use to test
07:29 kmkale Although I would be happy to supply a MARC file
07:29 chris there you go :) attach it to the bug
07:29 kmkale cool.
07:32 kmkale but anyone testing will have to input barcodes by hand in the libsuite8 format e.g. b0002345
07:33 chris heres how you do it the proper way :)
07:33 chris have a look in the t/ dir
07:33 kmkale so that it gets converted, AND will have to create matching branch code and item type code.
07:33 chris Circulation_barcodedecode.t
07:33 chris at that file
07:33 kmkale looking
07:33 chris see the tests there
07:33 chris for testing t-prefix
07:33 chris whitespace, etc
07:34 kmkale oohh.
07:34 chris you could add a test for yours
07:34 kmkale scared now ;)
07:34 chris :)
07:34 chris see how it has inputs and outputs
07:34 chris you just need to add one to each
07:35 chris and then not only will you prove it works now
07:35 kmkale ok. then how does it help someone to test it? I mean how to use the Circulation_barcodedecode.t file?
07:35 chris i can run prove
07:35 chris and all the tests in the t/ dir
07:35 chris get run
07:36 kmkale perl prove?
07:36 chris and also hudson, will run that test every time the code changes
07:36 chris yes
07:36 chris its a unit test
07:36 chris and doing unit tests for any new function is the ideal
07:36 chris because our integration bot runs them continuously
07:37 chris so if someone breaks its in future, we catch it
07:37 chris
07:37 kmkale ok. thats a territory I haven't explored yet. Will study.
07:38 chris well in your case, you only need to edit that one file, so its a good intro
07:38 chris :)
07:40 kmkale As usual chris you are a great help :)
07:41 kf :)
07:42 alex_a joined #koha
07:43 kmkale chris t/Circulation_barcodedecode.t *seems* simple enough. Any catch? or should I wade in?
07:43 chris wade in
07:44 kmkale also does it become part of the patch once it runs ok?
07:44 chris yup
07:44 chris perl t/Circulation_barcodedecode.t
07:44 kmkale great. :)
07:44 chris will run it
07:44 ronald joined #koha
07:44 chris (prove will run all of them)
07:46 ronald left #koha
07:47 chris (you might have to change the number of tests at the top .. it will tell you if you need to)
07:49 kmkale ok. Also chris, once we are revising the same patch like this, is it the right practice to produce the whole patch as I am doing or create a patch to the earlier patch?
07:50 chris the whole patch including the test (for a small change like this) is perfect
07:50 chris because no one has signed off yet
07:50 chris making a new patch is fine
07:50 chris if someone had signed off, we would then do a follow up patch
07:51 * chris hopes that makes some sense :)
07:51 kmkale yes chris. Thanks.
07:51 thd-away is now known as thd
07:52 kf hi thd

07:55 sophie_m joined #koha
07:55 kf and thanks again for the help with my little project yesterday - I learn something new every time :)
07:55 kmkale yes i learned about test today :)
07:55 chris its all part of my cunning plan
07:55 chris to not have to do any work anymore
07:55 chris :)

08:18 kf good morning france
08:25 kmkale has anyone noticed that in Firefox on Ubuntu 10.4 or 10.10, in the circulation module, the submit button of the search header comes on next line after the search box?
08:33 chris i hadnt noticed
08:34 kmkale chris: a problem
08:35 chris ill look now
08:35 kmkale the filter I have written depends on having  my $branch = C4::Branch::mybranch();
08:35 chris yes
08:35 kmkale but while running tests its undef so the test fails
08:35 chris right
08:35 chris in your test
08:35 chris you can do
08:36 fredericd joined #koha
08:36 fredericd good morning
08:37 kmkale morning fredericd
08:38 chris hi fredericd
08:39 kmkale chris "in your test you can do" ??
08:40 chris kmkale: C4::Context->set_userenv($usernum, $userid, $usercnum, $userfirstname,                                                                $usersurname, $userbranch, $userflags, $emailaddress);
08:40 chris where all the rest can be undef
08:40 chris except the branch
08:41 chris that will set the userenv, so that when mybranch is called it retrieves that
08:41 chris does that make sense?
08:41 kmkale cool
08:41 ivanc joined #koha
08:42 kmkale but this will be in effect for all the tests right? is that alright?
08:42 ivanc hi #koha
08:46 chris kmkale: no it will only be in effect for that test
08:47 kmkale I meant for all tests under Circulation_barcodedecode.t
08:47 chris ah yes
08:47 chris thats fine
08:47 hdl left #koha

09:26 kmkale chris is there any of getting debug output from C4/ while I am running the test?
09:29 chris yeah you could set the debug variable
09:30 chris eg
09:30 chris export KOHA_DEBUG=1
09:30 chris then run your test
09:30 kmkale the the warn lines will print tp stdout?
09:34 magnus joined #koha
09:34 kmkale s/the the warn lines will print tp stdout?/Will then the warn lines in C4/ print to stdout?/
09:34 chris stderr
09:35 chris the ones that have $debug && warn etc
09:35 chris (which they should all have there should not be any unqualified warns)
09:38 kmkale not getting any warn line in the terminal even after exporting KOHA_DEBUG=1 :(
09:43 kmkale the test is just throwing back my input as the output and ofcourse fails. any suggestions for debugging?
09:43 indradg joined #koha
09:45 chris hmm the warns seem to work for me
09:45 * chris has to go to sleep soon, but i can look again tomorrow
09:46 hdl sleep well

14:33 Nate and MAGNUS!
14:33 jcamins Welcome back, Nate.
14:33 Nate thank you sir!
14:34 magnus hi Nate
14:34 Nate :)
14:34 magnus how'd it go?
14:36 Nate It went great! I am an engaged man
14:36 Nate I took an opportunity when she set up the camera to take a picture of us on the auto timer
14:36 magnus ooh, congratulations!
14:37 jcamins Congratulations!
14:37 Nate and when she ran over for the pic i dropped to a knee and took out the ring
14:37 magnus hehe
14:37 Nate unfortunately the camera didnt take the picture
14:37 ebegin Nate: Share the picture...
14:37 ebegin Doh!
14:37 magnus oh no!
14:37 magnus stupid camera!
14:37 Nate yeah, but we staged another shot
14:38 ebegin Ah!  So you can share the picture ;)
14:38 Nate i dont have the pic from the camera yet because there are so many and we have not gone through them yet
14:38 magnus tell me about it... ;-)
14:38 Nate let me see if i can fish it out though, if she didnt take the camera with her to work
14:38 jcamins Nate: that was clever. I proposed to my wife by turning to her and saying "hey, let's get engaged now," so we don't have any pictures to remember it by.
14:39 magnus and where did it happen?
14:39 * magnus was proposed to by his wife... ;-)
14:40 owen-away is now known as owen
14:40 Nate yeah she took the camera to work
14:40 Nate but when i get the pic ill be sure to share!
14:40 Nate I did it in Marlborough wine country
14:41 Nate while we were biking through the vineyard
14:41 Nate s
14:41 Nate yeah you two got off easy, carrying that ring around was pretty stressful!
14:42 magnus :-)
14:42 magnus marlborough looks nice, judging by the first pics to show up on teh googlz
14:43 kmkale left #koha
14:44 jcamins Nate: I found shopping for the ring with my wife pretty stressful!
14:44 Nate I hear that
14:44 Nate and when I proposed she didnt even look at the ring!!!
14:45 Nate she just jumped all over me like i was a jungle gym, and I had to shove it in her face and be like "look what i got you!!"
14:45 Nate but i guess thats a good thing :)

14:46 magnus hiya sekjal
14:46 sekjal morning, jcamins & magnus!
14:46 Nate I also had to make sure i did it before to much of the wine tasting had taken place :)
14:47 jcamins Probably wise.

14:47 Nate I can see the NZ headlines now..."American couple gets arrested for contaminating a wine cask while skinny dipping in it"
14:48 * sekjal blinks
14:49 jcamins Fortunately for you, is an excellent news source, so it would be all over the world in the blink of an eye. :)
14:49 Nate caught the end of that one Sekjal..
14:49 sekjal Nate:  yeah, firing up the logs now...
14:50 jcamins Incidentally, speaking of photos, we finally got our wedding photos. Very exciting.
14:51 hdl hi sekjal
14:51 sekjal hi, hdl!
14:51 hdl congrats Nate
14:51 Nate thanks hdl!
14:52 wizzyrea grats killa ;)
14:52 Nate thanks wizzyrea!
14:52 jcamins Nate: I learned a valuable lesson about photographers- if you hire one, make sure you keep on them to actually *send* the photos. Otherwise, it can drag out. A lot.
14:52 wizzyrea but you've only been married what, 2 months?
14:52 Nate how long ago did you get married?
14:52 wizzyrea that's fast for most wedding photogs :P
14:52 jcamins August 27.
14:53 Nate Congrats on the wedding! :)]
14:53 wizzyrea aw, your anniversary is the day after my birthday!
14:53 jcamins wizzyrea: they're digital photos. All she had to do was burn them onto a CD.
14:53 wizzyrea even so lol
14:54 jcamins Well, it felt like a long time to us. ;)
15:00 wizzyrea ah yea, waiting is the hardest part

15:06 jcamins wizzyrea: I remember. That's why I thought of you when I was watching.
15:06 wizzyrea :D
15:06 wizzyrea nice
15:09 wizzyrea oo, xtranormal just timed out
15:10 wizzyrea You will live on gin and valium, and when you run out of them, you will run on spite.
15:10 wizzyrea classic.
15:10 trea uh, what?
15:10 trea lols
15:11 jcamins trea: library school. :D

15:12 wizzyrea hate hate, hate hate hate
15:12 trea "have you ever been shanked with a pair of safety scissors?"
15:12 wizzyrea …totally classic.
15:13 jcamins I thought it would be appreciated.
15:13 trea it is
15:19 jcamins I think I may freeze to death on this unseasonably warm November day.
15:21 jcamins The air conditioning is at gale force.
15:22 magnus jcamins: oh no! find something combustible and make fire, quick!
15:22 magnus s/fire/a fire/
15:22 jcamins magnus: fortunate I'm in a library with lots of books, isn't it?
15:23 magnus yeah, they should keep you warm for a while!
15:24 kf chris_n: around?
15:39 kf he is hiding from me
15:39 kf hm, and druthb is hiding too
15:44 jcamins kf: I'm here, though.
15:44 jcamins And looking forward to reading your analytics RFC. :)
15:44 jcamins (kf hides under the desk?)
15:46 kf yep
15:46 kf it's still a draft :(
15:46 kf I will try to work on it later - still at work and draft is on laptop at home
15:47 jcamins Take your time.
15:48 * jcamins tries to coax kf, chris_n, and druthb out with some msemmen with nutella.
15:49 magnus mm, that sounds delicious...
15:50 brendan_l joined #koha
15:50 * jcamins offers some to magnus, since it seems that kf, chris_n, and druthb would rather hide than have msemmen with nutella.
15:50 magnus i don't know much about msemmen, but i'll definitely try some
15:51 trea is that like a moroccan griddle cake?
15:51 trea Ahouifi M'semmen?
15:53 jcamins trea: yep.
15:53 trea that does sound amazing
15:53 jwagner druthb had an appointment and will be late today.  I'm sure she'd welcome some goodies then.
15:53 jcamins jwagner: oh, she's not hiding from kf?
15:53 jwagner probably hiding from me :-(
15:54 * jwagner has every intention of making druthb's life miserable as soon as she shows up :-)
15:54 jcamins trea: I still have not mastered the art of the msemmen, but one day--
15:54 cfouts joined #koha
15:55 owen Oh man are we talking about food already?
15:56 trea yea, once i heard nutella was involved
15:56 * owen can't keep nutella in the house for fear of overdosing
15:56 jcamins I've been told the gale noise is because "I got steeeeam heat."
15:57 * magnus is going to make pizza soon..
15:57 * sekjal is planning a Thanksgiving pizza for this Thursday
15:58 jcamins magnus: what recipe do you use?
15:58 * jcamins still hasn't perfected his pizza
15:59 * magnus has made two small pizzas every week for the last 10 years and thinks they are pretty perfected by now (at least according to his own tastes)... ;-)
16:00 jcamins Every week? Wow! Those must be pretty perfect pizzas!
16:01 magnus :-)
16:01 jcamins Is the recipe a family secret?
16:02 wizzyrea is anybody familiar with the "ReservesControlBranch" syspref?
16:03 wizzyrea I think I get what it does, but I'm a little confused.
16:03 magnus jcamins: nah, but it's just in my head... i'll write it down for you
16:03 jcamins magnus++ # for open sourcing his perfect pizza recipe
16:03 wizzyrea magnus++
16:04 wizzyrea might as well make a wiki category for food.
16:04 magnus ooh, thanks
16:04 magnus hehe "koha food"? cool!
16:04 trea indeed, we have quite a few recipes we could contribute
16:04 jcamins Bug 5158 hasn't been resolved yet.
16:04 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5158 enhancement, P5, ---, camins, ASSIGNED, Koha needs its own cookie, ice cream, and fudge flavors
16:04 sekjal I think recipes would go well into a Koha Kete install
16:04 trea brilliant
16:05 wizzyrea truf
16:05 magnus sekjal: i was thinking the same thing...
16:05 trea sekjal++
16:06 sekjal wizzyrea: that syspref is called once, in C4::Reserves, in the CanItemBeReserved() subroutine
16:06 laurence left #koha
16:07 wizzyrea i'm trying to imagine what ramifications that has on a setup like ours, where we have lots of local hold/no hold rules
16:07 wizzyrea these rules may translate better in koha proper.
16:09 sekjal changing it will change the issuing rule that is returned, if the patron doing the reserving isn't doing it at the items home library
16:09 wizzyrea sekjal: aha. I think I am going to have to get very snuggly with the rules
16:10 wizzyrea because I sense that our current rules won't translate the way we intend them to
16:11 sekjal for multi-library installs, it may become necessary to split the 'branchcode' factor of the issuing rules into 'item branch' and 'patron branch'
16:11 sekjal making it a four field combination to unlock the rules
16:11 sekjal which is all kinds of uglier
16:11 wizzyrea :( and believe me when I say: we've got ugly.
16:12 wizzyrea we might be able to simplify though (maybe)
16:12 brendan_l left #koha
16:12 sekjal maybe there is a way to abstract the rules up one more level.... so any item or patron fields can be factored into the rule-making
16:13 wizzyrea so, the l18n/l10N prefs are all to do with language: why don't we call it "Language" or "Internationalization"
16:13 wizzyrea or something
16:14 sekjal sounds good to me.... would be an easy patch to write up
16:15 wizzyrea I mean, this makes sense now that I've read the wikipedia article. But I don't like that it's so obtuse.
16:16 wizzyrea Localisation would also be a good one
16:16 magnus because "I18N/L10N" sounds much more 1337?
16:16 wizzyrea tewtally 1337
16:17 wizzyrea aha, I see why they did it this way
16:17 wizzyrea < still reading the wikipedia article
16:17 wizzyrea because you can set it up to be localised, multilingualised, OR internationalised.
16:17 wizzyrea hrmph.
16:18 wizzyrea it's still geek-speak.
16:18 magnus and it's short enough to fit on the "tab"
16:19 wizzyrea Globalisation
16:19 wizzyrea The terms are frequently abbreviated to the i18n (where 18 stands for the number of letters between the first i and last n in internationalization
16:19 jcamins Pre-globalized for the non-USians. :)
16:19 wizzyrea and L10n respectively, due to the length of the words. The capital L in L10n helps to distinguish it from the lowercase i in i18n.
16:20 wizzyrea is that really common usage and I live under a rock?
16:20 magnus i've seen it around, but not that much
16:20 owen It's v2y c4n u3e
16:21 wizzyrea hehe owen
16:21 jcamins wizzyrea: I've heard it a lot, although I didn't realize that L10n had to be capitalized.
16:21 jcamins What's u3e?
16:21 owen u+sag+e
16:22 jcamins Ah, thanks.
16:22 owen Next we'll do the Junior Jumble

16:25 jcamins I used a different recipe, but I don't remember which one.
16:27 jcamins I like that one better though, I think.
16:28 jcamins It has much better instructions for folding the msemmen.
16:28 magnus could it be[…]-flaky-bread.html ?
16:28 jcamins magnus: yeah, that's the one.
16:29 jcamins Is this one of those "Google provides different results at different computers" issues?
16:29 druthb joined #koha

16:48 magnus yay!
16:52 schuster Wishes he had sent them skittles to toss back and forth over the cubicle.

17:52 cait are we supposed to do something?

17:53 owen Perhaps a little dance, a quick song?
17:53 cait you can go first :)

17:55 cait cookies?

17:56 cait it's only the real #koha if someone mentions cookies, fudge or ice cream
17:56 jcamins Or brownies.

18:24 gmcharlt ... ok, that was a very weak pun indeed
18:24 * jcamins winces
18:25 jcamins Also, in this library... "standard" == "scary"
18:25 LBA can anyone tell me what setting controls whether a patron search looks through all branches or just the local branch?
18:25 jcamins LBA: SearchMyLibraryFirst
18:26 LBA thanks!
18:26 gmcharlt and IndependantBranches
18:27 LBA SearchMyLibraryFirst is for searching material not patrons, it seems.  I want to look up Patrons systemwide by default instead of having to dropdown and choose All.
18:28 cait LBA: that's a bug
18:28 jcamins LBA: oh, sorry.
18:28 jcamins I thought you meant "a patron's search."
18:28 cait I have not checkeed if there is a patch yet
18:29 LBA thanks, cait.  So, no way to change this at this behavior at this time?
18:30 cait perhaps with jquery

18:58 cait my landlord probably already things I am gone crazy
18:58 cait the nail holes are too small
18:58 * druthb spent the two hours afterwards cleaning coconut milk and meat out of the works of the bandsaw...
18:58 chris Hehe
18:58 cait hehe
18:58 chris Yeah you want a big nail
18:59 chris Or an old screwdriver you don't care about wrecking
18:59 druthb I cleaned the saw out first, and washed and sanitized a new band blade...but the blade hauled a lot of stuff out of there, and flung it around inside the saw.

19:08 chris back
19:09 wizzy_l chris: we were talking earlier about I13n/L10n syspref tag, I was wondering if that was extremely common usage that I just hadn't heard of, or if we should make the tag more clear
19:10 wizzy_l is now known as wizzyrea
19:11 * owen was about to remind wizzyrea to come back from lunch before her 3rd martini
19:11 wizzyrea *hic*
19:13 chris its common in comp sci
19:13 chris not so much out of it
19:14 wizzyrea Aha. That's pretty close to what I suspected.
19:14 chris if you and owen can use the full words and not make it look retarded, go for it :)
19:14 wizzyrea woot
19:14 * wizzyrea tries to avoid making things look retarded. When possible.
19:14 chris its just 2 big words to fit in that tab
19:15 gmcharlt "Translation"?
19:15 gmcharlt not quite an exact fit, conceptually, but maybe close enough?
19:15 chris yeah, probably close enough for our purposes
19:15 wizzyrea I was thinking "Languages"
19:15 chris and how was the concert?
19:15 gmcharlt good
19:16 gmcharlt BBC concert orchestra
19:16 wizzyrea oooo
19:16 trea nice
19:16 gmcharlt wizzyrea: and "Languages" works for me too
19:16 wizzyrea Globalisation is another perhaps
19:16 wizzyrea languages avoids that whole s vs z thing
19:17 owen Weird question on the Koha list... "books on hold by other libraries" ?
19:17 druthb languagez.
19:17 * wizzyrea sighs
19:17 schuster wheels
19:17 schuster drat didn't want to do that...

19:17 chris thats bizzare
19:17 wizzyrea whoa
19:18 chris someone want to take a crack and say, wow, never ever heard of that happening before, can you send a screen shot please
19:18 wizzyrea did they maybe leave their staff side with no auth, and the libraries made themselves accounts?

19:35 wizzyrea oh wait
19:35 wizzyrea there's a TIFF
19:35 jcamins But all it says is "Attachment."
19:35 owen I think that might be a Nabble attachement. You can see it here: http://koha.1045719.n5.nabble.[…]535.html#a3275860

19:36 wizzyrea aha
19:36 jcamins Is that demo data?
19:36 wizzyrea yea
19:36 chris lol
19:37 wizzyrea it must be demo data
19:37 chris yeah that explains it
19:37 chris yeah they have just loaded in the sample data, and then if you catalogue books, they are gonna end up in one of those branches
19:40 * owen cannot reproduce the errors described in Bug 5424
19:40 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5424 normal, P5, ---, gmcharlt, NEW, Intranet interface references intranet/htdocs/opac-tmpl which does not exist
19:41 chris yeah, im wondering if its something in their config
19:41 sekjal grep cannot find such a reference anywhere in koha-tmpl
19:41 sekjal must be local to the config
19:42 jcamins owen: it's a missing syspref.
19:42 jcamins I noticed that but didn't have time to respond.
19:42 jcamins At least, I think it is.
19:42 jcamins Erase OPACBaseURL and see if you can replicate the error?
19:43 jcamins (or maybe staffClientBaseURL... I'm not sure which)
19:43 * owen 's logs are full of " Use of uninitialized value $text in pattern match (m//) "
19:44 jcamins Also, one of the errors there is a missing Perl module.
19:44 jcamins Unfortunately, I couldn't figure out which.
19:45 owen I do get the error: " Use of uninitialized value in subroutine entry at /usr/lib/perl5/Lingua/Stem/ line 55"
19:45 chris thats a warn, not an error, annoying
19:45 chris but not always actually a problem
19:46 chris we should definitely stop them in our code though
19:46 owen emptying OPACBaseURL doesn't make the errors appear
19:46 jcamins owen: hm. We had a similar issue at first, but I don't remember what fixed it.
19:47 jcamins I thought it was OPACBaseURL.
19:47 owen jcamins: Do you have a standard or dev install?
19:47 jcamins dev.
19:47 wizzyrea so who wants to answer "we think you're confusing holds and holdings"
19:48 * wizzyrea will, but doesn't want to duplicate if someone's already typing
19:48 jcamins But we managed to get it working right before transitioning to ByWater, and apparently it was something so simple that I didn't think it was worth noting.
19:49 jcamins That is, it worked properly before the transition.
19:49 jcamins We got it working some months earlier.
19:49 jcamins Very poor sentence.

20:27 owen
20:30 Brooke so the button will float instead of making me use precious finger muscles to scroll up or down?
20:31 magnus looks good to me, owen
20:31 wizzyrea aha, I like that
20:31 chris yep
20:31 * chris too
20:31 jcamins Nifty.
20:32 cait owen: what happens if you search for something and you have prefs from a lot of tabs?
20:32 Brooke I know that silver is a theme, but can ye make it green or blue so it still fits in, but its appearance is noticeable?
20:32 wizzyrea ohhhhhh
20:32 owen cait: I think under those conditions I'll have to prevent it from appearing
20:32 cait owen: I like it, just wondering :)
20:32 cait because I do that a lot ... and half of the time I miss a save button
20:33 wizzyrea we already have a pref to send emails to the "first valid", why don't notices default to that
20:33 LBA left #koha
20:33 wizzyrea AutoEmailPrimaryAddress, why not make it "EmailPrimaryAddress" and make it work for all notices
20:33 jcamins Is there a reason we don't use a "Save all preferences" button?
20:34 jcamins (I mean, in the situation that cait describes)
20:34 owen jcamins: I'm not sure that's possible. I'm not that familiar with the innards of the new preferences editor
20:34 * owen may have to become so to get his idea working
20:34 cait wizzyrea: I think it's a good idea to make it work for all notices
20:35 jcamins owen: ah. That would explain it.
20:35 * jcamins doesn't know anything about the new preferences editor.
20:35 * Brooke wonders how big and scary an individual preference page will become if the magic button is added...
20:35 owen Brooke: I don't understand
20:35 darling joined #koha
20:36 Brooke we're feature rich, which is good
20:36 chris darling: sup!
20:36 darling hey
20:36 Brooke having a slew of features to set on one page = daunting.
20:36 jcamins Brooke: but they're still there, just without a convenient save button?
20:36 Brooke so it used to be annoying enough that when you had to scroll for a button, you guys would tab the page
20:37 jcamins *.
20:37 Brooke don't get me wrong I like the button
20:37 Brooke I just wonder what evil it will wreak ;)
20:37 jcamins Oh, I see what you're saying.
20:37 * wizzyrea has seen much uglier preference panes in other software. This is downright pleasant to use.
20:37 * owen remembers how the last button he added to Koha invaded Poland
20:37 * Brooke laughs at owen
20:37 wizzyrea at least we got sausages out of the deal.
20:38 chris owen: well to be fair, you did give it that stupid mustache
20:38 jcamins Brooke: thanks for volunteering to make sure that no one preference tab gets too long! :D
20:38 chris owen: that'd make anything angry

20:46 chris you might have to create one in the test
20:46 chris use MARC::Record;
20:46 chris my $record = MARC::Record->new();
20:47 cait but how do I fill it with data?
20:48 chris well you could do a bunch of append_fields
20:48 chris or you could maybe make a file
20:48 chris included with the test
20:48 cait chris: I think a test testing that borrowers and deletedborrowers have the same structure might be a good idea too - but no idea how to do that
20:48 chris and create the marc record from that
20:48 chris with MARC::File::XML
20:49 cait hm
20:49 chris[…]/MARC/File/
20:49 chris my $file = MARC::File::XML->in( $filename ); my $record = $file->next();
20:50 chris having some sample marc records for testing wouldnt hurt at all
20:50 cait ok
20:50 cait I will try it
20:51 cait has only the use test right now
20:51 chris yeah more tests for that would be excellent

20:51 magnus cait: create a record:[…]
20:51 magnus cait: append fields:[…]append_fields%28_@fields_%29
20:51 cait I looked at overdues - but same problem there. was not sure how to test that without data from the database
20:52 chris cait: you might need to look at the files in t/db_dependent
20:52 chris for how to do those type of tests
20:52 jwagner left #koha
20:52 cait ok
20:52 cait but I think for perhaps some files will be ok?
20:52 chris and putting some sample records in t/data/ seems like a good idea to me
20:52 chris yes
20:52 chris for a lot of tests
20:53 chris but quite a few try to check the db for frameworks etc
20:53 chris but getting any tests is better than none
20:53 chris meeting time bbiab
20:53 cait thx chris
20:54 cait and thx magnus

21:18 pianohack hi liz
21:18 pianohack How are you guys?
21:18 wizzyrea doin well, how's school?
21:19 cait hi pianohack

21:32 chris heya pianohack
21:32 pianohack hey chris
21:32 pianohack How's it going?
21:34 chris busy but good, and you? i see you got the job
21:34 pianohack Yup
21:34 chris cool :)
21:35 pianohack Busy busy, but it's nice to have something outside of school
21:35 chris *nod*
21:35 jcamins pianohack: congratulations!
21:35 chris some pocket money must be good too
21:35 pianohack Very much
21:35 Brooke oh congratulations :D
21:35 schuster left #koha
21:35 pianohack Trying to save most of it for tuition
21:36 Brooke good thinking
21:36 pianohack Trying to avoid as much student loans as I can, so I'll probably be working full-time over the summer
21:36 Brooke despite working me nuts off in grad school it was worth having about 9k less in loans when I got out.
21:36 jcamins student_loans--
21:36 pianohack student_loans--
21:36 Brooke student_loans--
21:36 chris yeah
21:36 pianohack debt in general, but student loans add up fast
21:37 pianohack and the stuff they can do to collect in our wonderful country is _insane_
21:37 * chris was lucky, no student loans for me
21:37 Brooke *nod*
21:37 chris pianohack: including calling nz, on xmas eve
21:37 magnus left #koha
21:37 Brooke if you get a gummint jorb, you can usually trick your employer into repaying for ye.
21:37 pianohack chris: You were a reference?
21:37 chris married to a debtor :)
21:38 chris well, its now paid off
21:38 pianohack oh, ouch
21:38 chris but yeah, i read them the debt collection act
21:38 Brooke gimme their address and I'll happily egg their agency for ye ;)
21:38 pianohack Brooke: we'll see. It's a student position at the moment, which has upsides and downsides
21:38 Brooke *nod*
21:38 chris including the fact they cant do a thing until they send me a full invoice of all they say we owe
21:38 pianohack They're very flexible about time off, but they can let me go if I so much as sneeze wrong
21:38 chris they backed off
21:39 Brooke the boy got his Controller's post from an internship
21:39 pianohack chris: is this us or nz law?
21:39 sekjal left #koha
21:39 chris us law, nz law was even stricter
21:39 pianohack jcamins: Heh, yeah. I had to design my schedule next semester around work
21:39 pianohack chris: I think I should read this act too, sounds relevant to my interests :)
21:40 chris i did say "you are welcome to fly here and try to collect, otherwise, send me an invoice"
21:40 * Brooke laughs at chris.
21:40 jcamins Undergraduate wasn't quite so bad, as there were lots more classes on offer.
21:40 pianohack (schedule involves me waking up at 8:00 am two days a week, which is... suboptimal for a teenage CS major)
21:41 chris FDCPA pianohack
21:41 chris federal debt collection protection act
21:41 chris was the one i read out to them
21:41 pianohack 28 pages? This doesn't look bad.
21:41 pianohack Good thing to sum up for my parents and whatnot
21:41 chris Within five days after the debtor is first contacted, the collector must send the debtor a written notice telling the debtor the amount of money they owe, the name of the creditor to whom the debtor owes the money, and what action to take if the debtor believes they do not owe the money.
21:41 pianohack Just in case something goes wrong
21:41 chris that bit
21:42 jcamins chris: I hope they didn't call collect?
21:42 chris stopped them trying to make me pay them on the phone
21:42 chris i mean wtf, they could be anyone
21:42 chris nope :)
21:42 pianohack That would be scuzzy but believable
21:43 * jcamins imagines reading a 28 page document to a collection agency that just made an international call to NZ and laughs evilly
21:43 cait hehe
21:43 chris i liked the, under section whatever paragraph whatever
21:43 chris it says
21:43 jcamins A collection agency tried to bully me into paying an old debt run up by the person who had my phone number a few years ago.
21:43 chris i felt like a lawyer :)
21:44 jcamins And on that cheerful note, time to close up.
21:45 jcamins Good night, #koha.
21:45 chris a lawyer with google
21:45 Brooke night jared
21:45 Brooke I've always just said the powerful little "Do not make me call my attorney general."
21:46 Brooke for years it was Spitzer, so that was all it took.
21:46 LBA If I want holds to be filled by one particular branch first and then it should randomly pull from the other branches, how do I modify the StaticHoldsQueueWeight setting?
21:46 pianohack night jcamins
21:47 pianohack Hmm. I don't think Koha can do that, from what I remember of that code
21:47 jcamins is now known as jcamins_a
21:47 LBA So would have to include all branch codes in that field?
21:47 cait LBA: I am not sure, but I thin it will take a list of branchcodes
21:47 cait I have read about it, but never tried it
21:48 wizzyrea it takes a list of branchcodes
21:48 cait perhaps someone can look at the code - I am not sure if you have to add all
21:48 wizzyrea comma separated
21:48 cait liz - always rescueing me :)
21:48 LBA I know I can list all branches codes and it will prioritize pulling holds in that order.
21:48 wizzyrea but, I don't think it will do what you want specifically
21:48 LBA BUT, was hoping it would randomize all those except the first one.
21:49 pianohack good lord, this law. "8 o'clock antimeridian"? AFAIK, that's both wrong _and_ verbose
21:50 wizzyrea …shouldn't that be an 'e'
21:50 wizzyrea ante<-
21:51 Brooke wizzy, you don't wanna know what changing an e on a law form entails.
21:51 pianohack I think so. Would you even spell it out like that?
21:51 * wizzyrea knows, is sufficiently frightened.
21:53 cait hm sleepy
21:53 cait bye all :)
21:53 cait left #koha
21:57 Brooke d'oh stupid alt tab preventing me from saying gnight
22:05 LBA If I set "AutomaticItemReturn to "Don't" automatically transfer items to their home branch when they are returned...isn't that essentially telling the system you want to implement floating collections.  Where they are returned is where they should stay?  Or am I misunderstanding that setting.
22:06 wizzyrea I believe you are interpreting that correctly, yes
22:06 pianohack Yeah, sounds right
22:07 Brooke LBA, were you looking for RandomizeHoldsQueueWeight earlier by chance?
22:07 LBA brooke, yes.
22:07 wizzyrea I dont think it does what she wants though
22:08 ebegin left #koha
22:09 LBA I just tested the "Don't" automatically return and when I checked in the item, the system wanted me to send it back home (which I didn't want) and it also showed it had a hold to fill at yet a different location.
22:09 LBA So, seems like it didn't "take"?
22:10 chris no it took all right
22:10 chris it asked you
22:10 chris with automatic return, it doesnt ask
22:10 chris it initiates a transfer automatically
22:10 LBA ah
22:10 wizzyrea that seems like right behavior
22:10 chris if its asking you, do you want to transfer, then its not automatically doing it
22:11 LBA got it.  okay to that one.
22:11 wizzyrea did it pop you a "transfer home" and a "send on" window?
22:11 wizzyrea just curious what version you're working with
22:11 chris we could make another setting
22:11 chris never transfer
22:11 LBA wizzyrea, yes.  but when I said please no.  It seemed also to disregard the hold that was next in line to be filled at a different location.
22:12 wizzyrea yea, I wonder if that hold is now abandoned.
22:12 LBA
22:12 LBA I can check.  stand by.
22:12 wizzyrea do you have another copy of that same title to check in?
22:12 chris hmm thats a fairly old version too
22:13 chris (at least pre 3.2.0)
22:14 chris i dont remember any transfers/holds changes between then and now tho, not any ones that were big enough to recall
22:14 wizzyrea some bug fixes though
22:15 cfouts anyone here experienced memory leaks in MARC::Record?
22:15 LBA ByWater could it be later version that it says in About?
22:15 LBA wizzyrea, yes, will try to check in another copy of that title
22:16 chris nope, they probably are running the rc
22:17 LBA wizzyrea, I checked in another copy of title and it did trigger hold as desired
22:18 LBA Seems like it should have triggered the hold on the previous item that got returned but it didn't.
22:21 * Brooke is off to pick up the little mister at the airport.
22:22 Brooke I'll not be on too terribly much for a bit since I'll be attempting not to slaughter my sisters for a few days.
22:22 wizzyrea nope, it always triggers for the item in hand
22:22 wizzyrea (correct)
22:22 wizzyrea meaning, that's correct behaviour
