00:00 Judit happy sysadmin day - dont forget to buy/make pizza to your sysadmin :)
00:02 rhcl ya think? I'm thinking it wouldn't hurt it, but maybe I'll just buy a new one.
00:06 jcamins_away rhcl: I'd say it's worth a try.
00:06 jcamins_away It depends on the type of plastic.
00:07 * jcamins_away is not feeling optimistic about this pizza.
00:07 jcamins_away It's just way too humid.
00:07 rhcl Well, I wash them (keyboards) in the dishwasher fairly often, but then they have to dry overnight. I was thinking alcohol might speed up the drying process.
00:08 jcamins_away rhcl: the last time I washed a keyboard with rubbing alcohol was probably about a decade ago, and it was a *really cheap* one.
00:10 rhcl I did learn, after about my third one, that it was better to take the time to actually take them apart and wash just the upper part, not the electronics. It took about three days to dry out if I washed
00:10 rhcl 'em whole.
00:12 rhcl off to do stuff...ltr
00:12 rhcl is now known as rhcl_away
00:16 danmc I prefer to not put leaded items in my dishwasher...
00:17 danmc but perhaps yours is a ROHS one
00:19 jcamins_away Oh no! I have no cheese!
00:21 Judit :)

00:50 Brooke kia ora
00:50 Brooke wahanui: friday?
00:50 wahanui friday is It's Friday, Friday Gotta get down on Friday
00:51 * jcamins_away reinterprets "pizza" in the loosest possible sense of the word.
00:51 * Brooke grunts.
00:51 Brooke That sounds dangerous
00:51 Brooke I still have some venison and wild rice.
00:53 Topic for #koha is now druthb ninja
00:53 jcamins_away Venison and wild rice pizza?
00:53 jcamins_away Intriguing.
00:53 Topic for #koha is now hey I shouldn't be able to do that.
00:54 Topic for #koha is now Next General IRC Meeting 2 August 2011 at 02:00 UTC.
00:54 Brooke nah no pizza
00:54 Brooke just venison and wild rice
00:54 Brooke some dried cranberries in there, though
00:55 Brooke not that I *can't* make pizza
00:55 Brooke I just _didn't_/
00:55 jcamins_away That sounds good too, but it fails the "must be pizza" requirement for my dinner.
00:55 jcamins_away Also, I have neither venison nor wild rice.
00:56 Brooke psha, fine hunter / gatherer you are :P
00:56 * jcamins_away hunted and gathered extensively in the wilds of his refrigerator and pantry.
00:56 jcamins_away Hence the looseness of the definition.
00:56 Brooke "He's a business man from Buffalo?"
00:56 jcamins_away What?
00:57 Brooke
00:58 jcamins_away Heh.

02:01 libsysguy evening #Koha
02:02 libsysguy anybody around that can offer up some advice on the borrowers table?
02:05 rangi maybe
02:06 libsysguy we are probably just going to be doing LDAP auth at the university but i have a feed of currently enrolled students that I am going to push to the database that doesn't contain passwords
02:06 libsysguy is that going to be a problem?
02:07 rangi nope
02:07 rangi if its doing ldap auth, dont need a password in the koha db
02:07 libsysguy until it replicates i suppose it won't be there
02:07 libsysguy ok cool :)
02:11 rangi libsysguy:[…]ux-power-stalkers
02:35 libsysguy now this is my kind of music
02:36 rangi how bout[…]oys-no-sleep-till
02:36 libsysguy rangi++ for good coding music selection
03:26 libsysguy rangi do you know what the sort 1 and sort 2 fields are for when you enter a new patron
03:27 jcamins_away Hypothetically speaking, could a valid MARCXML document have attributes on the subfield tag from a different namespace?
03:28 jcamins_away libsysguy: they're for your own use for reporting.
03:28 rangi libsysguy: yeah, you can leave them blank safely
03:28 libsysguy jcamins_away: do you know where they are in the database
03:28 rangi borrowers table
03:28 libsysguy i was looking for a field to put whether a student is a freshman, sophomore etc
03:29 libsysguy any ideas?
03:29 wahanui any ideas are welcome :)
03:29 rangi yep, you could use it for that
03:29 rangi or you could use extended attributes
03:29 libsysguy ok i might do the extended attributes
03:30 jcamins_away rangi: any idea if I could add a koha:visibility attribute to MARCXML?
03:31 Guillaume joined #koha
03:31 libsysguy are the extended attributes in borrowers?
03:31 libsysguy oops
03:31 jcamins_away Actually, that's how we handle items already, isn't it?
03:31 libsysguy i see it in the other table
03:31 jcamins_away libsysguy: no, they're in the extended attributes table.
03:31 rangi yup i think so jcamins_away
03:32 rangi libsysguy: you have seen the borrower import tool in koha eh?
03:32 rangi that can import a csv file, and do extended attributes etc
03:32 jcamins_away rangi: thanks.
03:33 libsysguy no i haven't
03:33 rangi ahhh
03:33 rangi look under tools
03:33 rangi in the staff interface
03:33 libsysguy but im going to be upset if it does the same thing as the script i just wrote lol
03:33 rangi i suspect it does ;)
03:33 * libsysguy cries a little on the inside
03:34 rangi sorry i didnt tell ya earlier
03:34 libsysguy its cool...writing a script is a learning process anyway
03:35 rangi *nod*
03:35 rangi[…]down-by-filetype/
03:35 libsysguy well i can safely safely say that Koha's was far more complex than mine :p
03:35 rangi heh yeah it has to cater to everything
03:35 libsysguy exactly
03:52 libsysguy rangi in the bulk patron import tool i see there is a patron attribute field
03:53 libsysguy if i have a patron attribute defined
03:53 libsysguy what would i put there?
03:53 eythian rangi has gone to prepare for friday drinking
03:54 libsysguy omg there is an entire day dedicated to drinking
03:54 libsysguy *jealous eyes*
03:54 eythian yes?
03:54 eythian don't you do that?
03:54 libsysguy negative good sir
03:54 libsysguy but thanks for making me want to move to NZ
03:54 libsysguy lol
03:55 libsysguy you wouldn't happen to know the answer to my question would you?
03:55 eythian wow. You must miss out on a lot.
03:55 eythian unfortunately now
03:55 eythian *no
03:55 libsysguy its ok...i don't think i can finish this tonight anyway
03:56 eythian it is Friday after all
03:56 libsysguy and i had my days of
03:56 libsysguy i still have an hour till its friday
03:56 libsysguy :'(*
03:56 eythian Man. The past sure does suck.
03:57 libsysguy yeah it does...
03:57 libsysguy oh off to bed to welcome friday in with shut eyes

08:34 bigbrovar joined #koha
08:34 paul_p well, the server is OK. We could request the provider to reboot it normally. But he could detect a hacking again. Except it seems that this provider sometimes shutdown for security reason, without a valid reason (some complains found on the forums...)
08:35 paul_p security++, but reboot without warning--

08:45 Brooke anyone on that's cool enough to IP ban a wiki bot?
08:52 kf not sure
08:54 kf Brooke: there is lots of spam on the wiki - but normally someone blocks very fast
08:54 Brooke I reverted what I could
08:54 Brooke but it'd be cool to drop the ban hammer on em
08:56 Brooke I'm positive that nengard, paul, magnus, gmcharlt can all do so. (hint, hint.)

10:05 paul_p kf, oups, sorry
10:05 paul_p shouldn't we let "patch pushed" so ? (even if there's a problem)
10:05 kf I think leavint it open is best, without a status for patch send
10:06 kf paul_p: no reason to be sorry :) Easy to miss, I just didn't want you to worry about the patch

12:12 kf hi Agent_Dani
12:24 oleonard it drives me crazy that Koha scripts don't gracefully handle errors when parameters are missing.
12:24 oleonard If I load without passing a biblionumber I don't think I should get an ugly error page
12:24 oleonard A pretty one, maybe...

13:31 oleonard The instructions do sound tricky.

13:38 oleonard The ones on the page
13:40 libsysguy oh yeah...a bit
13:42 wizzyrea friday morning stumper:
13:42 libsysguy YAYYYY
13:42 wizzyrea a report that shows how many patrons place holds
13:42 libsysguy hey oleonard i think ifigured it out
13:43 wizzyrea something like - count each unique patron number in reserves and old_reserves
13:49 oleonard You could do it with a subquery I suppose wizzyrea
13:49 oleonard select * from borrowers where borrowernumber in (select distinct borrowernumber from reserves) ?
13:50 wizzyrea that lists them out and gets the same as select count(distinct borrowernumber) from reserves;
13:50 wizzyrea same number
13:50 wizzyrea so yay~!
13:51 * oleonard always feels that using a subquery is "cheating," but isn't sure why
14:03 oleonard List traffic... that's a good sign.

14:09 wizzyrea druthb, hi thar
14:10 druthb wizzyrea, hi thar
14:11 kf sekjal: around?
14:11 wizzyrea how's it goin?
14:11 libsysguy druthb your perl scripting skills are far superior to my own
14:11 sekjal kf:  here, but in a meeting at the moment
14:11 kf ah
14:11 kf checksum, 3m self check
14:11 kf we have problems with titles with umlauts and wonder if that could be the reason
14:12 kf and I think I remember you talking about checksums
14:12 druthb i-am-but-an-egg, libsysguy, but thank you.  I've been at it a while, and I've learned a few useful tricks.
14:12 wizzyrea 3m self check?
14:12 kf yep
14:12 wizzyrea using SIP?
14:12 kf yep
14:12 wizzyrea yea, special characters + 3m + sip = sad panda
14:12 kf only supposed to check out
14:12 kf ohoh
14:12 wizzyrea it'll kick it offline, in my experience
14:13 kf how do we make the sad panda happier?
14:13 libsysguy yeah i think it'll take time for me to learn
14:13 wizzyrea well
14:13 wizzyrea that, my dear friend
14:13 wizzyrea is something that we have been trying to figure out for a couple of years :/
14:14 druthb libsysguy: it does take time, and it takes doing it a lot.  One thing I've learned a lot from is Perl Best Practices.  There is no one right way to do all this--that's one of the features of perl, is that you can do darn near anything six ways--but PBP advocates for, and presents, one way to do things that makes for easy to read, easy to maintain code that you can recycle and use over and over.
14:15 kf wizzyrea: ouch
14:15 kf we had no problems with our other vendor
14:15 kf and they have hebrew titles
14:15 kf migrated hebrew in 245$a titles
14:15 kf and it all shows up perfectly
14:16 wizzyrea other vendor for self check?
14:16 libsysguy druthb any tips on doing a split and only taking the first trying to split an email on the @ and only grab the name so would return elliott with split('@','')[0]
14:16 kf yeah
14:16 kf other library uses german vendor
14:16 wizzyrea that is VERY interesting
14:16 wizzyrea so maybe the problem isn't SIP, it's 3M
14:16 wizzyrea uh, i realize how ironic that sounds.
14:16 wizzyrea specifically, the problem isn't koha
14:17 druthb my ($result,undef) = split(/\@/,$incoming_variable,2);
14:17 kf not sure if they had to do a lot of stuff
14:17 druthb you could use ,1 and leave off the undef, but this is explicit--I want the first thing, and deliberately toss the rest.
14:18 kf we send test cases for them to work and they tested a lot and so far except for the known problems with holds we had no bigger problems
14:18 libsysguy hmm is there anyway to do it without assigning it to a var
14:18 kf especially not with diacritics
14:18 libsysguy here is what i actually have     push(@patron,split('@',$row[3])[0]); #split email to get userid
14:18 wizzyrea welllll
14:18 kf I think they probably made it work with unicode
14:19 wizzyrea yes, that
14:19 wizzyrea actually that's a very very good point
14:19 jcamins_away libsysguy: I think you're better off using a variable, so that you can figure out what it means.
14:19 wizzyrea and an excellent stick to beat 3M with
14:19 wizzyrea "the germans can do it, why can't you"
14:19 kf lol
14:19 druthb split returns an array, and you're wanting to push a scalar, so you have to grab a specific could do what you're trying, but better to take a line, so you can read it later.
14:19 * libsysguy is a lazy java programmer
14:19 kf and I will get beaten up for it in the end? ;)
14:19 wizzyrea nope
14:19 druthb hi, jcamins_away! :)
14:19 libsysguy ok i can do that
14:19 wizzyrea you will be hailed as the mighty savior of pokémon
14:20 wizzyrea at least in our self check library
14:20 kf paul_p: still around? aren't you working with 3m too in some of your libraries?
14:20 kf oh my
14:20 kf pokemon :)
14:20 jcamins_away Hi, druthb!
14:20 * druthb hugs her second-favorite New Yorker, and sends one with him to pass along to her favorite.
14:20 druthb ;-)
14:21 kf wizzyrea: and you found no work around for pokemon?
14:21 * jcamins_away passes along the hug, and returns with a hug for Ruth.
14:21 wizzyrea not yet
14:21 wizzyrea though I admit I haven't looked at it in months, the library just deals with it
14:21 kf I wonder how they work in france
14:21 druthb :D
14:22 kf hdl told me they had 3M self checks and it worked 'like a charm'
14:23 wizzyrea that is also interesting. I wonder what they did to fix it, because special characters make our 3M machines puke.
14:23 * kf nods
14:30 paul_p kf, yes around (and just discovered one of our recent customer has all his table in myISAM, so witjout contraints...) sh..t friday !
14:32 nengard joined #koha
14:33 paul_p kf, about 3M, I can't help i'm afraid, only hdl could.
14:39 * oleonard finds notes in his notebook about NPL's upgrade to Koha 2.2
14:40 oleonard I guess it's taken me a while to fill this one up.
14:46 Callender left #koha
14:48 kf hi paul_p: we solve dit :)
14:48 * kf grins
14:48 kf wizzyrea: want a patch?
14:49 sekjal kf:  meeting done
14:50 sekjal kf:  are we talking critics in titles over SIP connections?
14:50 kf yes
14:50 kf we got it working now
14:50 sekjal how?
14:50 kf solution was on the web
14:51 kf we changed the checksum calculation, he told me something about not counting letters but bits?
14:51 sekjal oh!
14:51 kf our customer was able to checkout the books now on the self check
14:51 sekjal that's much more elegant than the hack I wrote
14:51 kf he says the slips are not printing correctly, but the checking out process works now
14:51 kf this might be your hack
14:51 sekjal I scrubbed the diacritic marks
14:51 kf I am posting the patch we created to pastebin, give me a sec
14:52 kf not a solution for germany
14:52 kf really
14:52 sekjal right
14:52 pastebot "kf" at pasted "From 9176fd464eae3782fe96b53bc" (33 lines) at
14:52 kf not sure this is the perfect solution- but it solves our problem
14:53 kf other problems may arise
14:54 sekjal I think I could wrangle some volunteers to test it
14:57 kf we don#t do returns on this self check - so not sure there is needed something at other places in the code
14:58 kf coworker said he copied the solution from a source in the internet
14:58 sekjal I think it should work all around... but I could be mistaken
15:00 paul_p OK, mail server is back !
15:01 paul_p probably a backdoor in drupal or mantis (that are also on this server) let the hacker upload enlightement rootkit. We will upgrade ASAP & check the server everytime...

18:14 oleonard don't worry wizzyrea it will melt down his shirt on its own
18:15 Agent_Dani wizzyrea: I'll take the ice here...might break the all-time record high here.
18:25 wizzyrea those of you using redhat/fedora/centOS, there's an android app "Linux Cheat Sheet"

19:28 SirDekar I'll see if this solve my problem
19:29 miguel joined #koha
19:31 Brooke I just feel bad that no native spanish speakers are on at the moment. There are a tonne that use Koha, so try the listserv if all else fails.

19:52 Brooke anyone have a screen shot of the 2.0 staff welcome screen? You know, ole lime green?
19:56 SirDekar I did it Brooke, thanks
19:57 SirDekar that command I mentioned was left :P
19:57 SirDekar had to start over
19:57 Brooke outstanding :D
19:57 Brooke sorry about the trouble
19:57 rhcl_away some images on, but I didn't see a welcome screen
19:57 SirDekar don't worry it was my mistake
19:58 rhcl_away but judging from some of the results a "koha" search term pulled I'd say google is using zebra as an indexer
19:58 Brooke rhcl I think it happens because of all of the library 2.0 crap messin it up
20:00 rhcl_away uh, no, I don't think anything library related would pull against some of the images that came up.
20:00 Brooke kitty feeding time, brb
