00:13 mtj eythian: yep, i agree -  theres no db differences between our versions
00:13 pinklady left #koha
00:14 eythian actually, I just changed it by removing the ratingid column and setting borrowernumber and biblionumber as a composite key, but that's a fairly small change.
00:14 mtj so your clients wont have any problems with either version, in 3.6
00:14 meliameggs left #koha
00:14 eythian yeah
00:19 mtj aah, composite-key is a new trick for me
00:20 mtj does that make basic-level sql queries trickier?
00:20 eythian no, it just ensures that the combination of borrower and biblio is unique and indexed as a pair.
00:21 eythian which, given most of the searches are like that, is a bit faster.
00:23 mtj ha, im sold :)   it sounds like a good way to go
00:40 eythian mtj: sent up now.
00:43 eythian hmm, that seems to be missing a file
00:45 eythian there we go

02:09 rangi hiya druthb
02:09 druthb hi, rangi! :D  *hug*
02:10 rangi where are you at now?
02:10 druthb Indianapolis, IN.  Spent the day working at larryb's place.
02:11 rangi ahhh cool
02:12 druthb That's the plan for tomorrow, too.  :)  Lindsey likes it over there; plays with the cats and goofs off a lot.
02:13 rangi sweet
02:13 druthb This campground is not as shady as the others we have been at....the tent might well be uninhabitable mid-day.
02:14 rangi ahhh, yeah not being in the tent is a good idea :)
02:16 druthb Next week, we're in Sioux Falls, SD, then Lawrence, KS (wizzyrea country), then Tennessee, then North Carolina, and back to DC for doc visits and a presentation to the national organization for GLBT science and tech professionals Chesapeake chapter.
02:16 rangi awesome
02:17 druthb Probably back to Bird-In-Hand for a couple of weeks, then to Philly, where Lindsey will stay while I'm in India.

02:59 rangi[…]ely-bind_columns/
03:02 eythian I'd not seen that, nor using \my
03:03 rangi yeah me iehter
03:03 chilts heh, I'd like to see that being used when you're pulling 10 or more columns out  :)
03:04 eythian naw, then you'd use fetchrow_hashref({})
03:06 chilts I pretty much use that exclusively (either on it's own, or in conjunction with a selectall_arrayref with no slice)
03:06 rangi i can see doing that in a few places tho
03:06 rangi when you are just fetching a biblionumber or something
03:07 chilts seems like typing three lines in in exchange for a shorter variable name doesn't seem worth it
03:07 chilts though it does get extra checking I suppose
03:08 eythian also faster
03:08 rangi yup
03:08 eythian so for doing huge dumps it may be worthwhile too
03:08 rangi and typing less has never been a good argument imho ;)
03:08 eythian it's only one more line, anyway
03:08 chilts true
03:09 chilts I think faster also hasn't been a good argument either :)
03:09 rangi :)
03:09 eythian it is when doing rebuild_zebra :)
03:10 * chilts can't be arsed anymore
03:10 rangi hehe
03:10 eythian though, for small to medium size things, it'll be more readable.
03:11 chilts if you want faster for getting a few columns in a tight loop, then a selectall will be faster than fetching one row at a time ... even if it saves when making a variable or two, it wins since you do less db round-trips :)
03:11 eythian good point
03:12 chilts (probably, but who knows until you profile) :)
03:12 chilts heh
03:12 rangi actually that might be a win for rebuild_zebra right there
03:12 rangi or it might eat all the ram and we die
03:12 rangi :)
03:12 chilts heh

03:13 chilts also, behind the scenes, sometimes DBI may get a number of rows at the same time, which I guess obscures what it's really doing
03:13 rangi tis true
03:13 chilts it may get a lot and therefore wouldn't make much difference anyway, but it'll be worth trying
03:13 eythian yeah, I think it just loads smarter
03:13 chilts it's a minefield :)

04:13 Judit can i have a question? (just because i know how much rangi loves this line)
04:15 Judit so in Serial, when you receive it, and want to add an item
04:15 Judit sometimes you have the link Click to add item sometimes you dont
04:15 Judit​,3
04:16 Judit so what do i need to do to have the Click to add item link
04:16 Judit all the time
04:17 rangi make sure your subscription is set up to add items

04:18 rangi yep
04:18 Judit is highlited

04:18 rangi thats old 3.2
04:18 Judit :) i so knew it
04:18 Judit but come on
04:19 Judit i have the same problem in our 3.4
04:19 rangi then you'll have to figure it out then :)
04:19 Judit okay
04:20 Judit let me ask it again
04:20 Brooke joined #koha
04:20 Judit if i choose create an item record when receiving this serial on the edit derial page
04:20 rangi no i mean i dont know
04:20 rangi you will have to figure it out
04:20 Judit what is the default
04:20 wahanui the default is ports for those who dont have access/skills to run dns
04:22 Brooke oh that's just scary
04:22 Brooke me olde long range plan is still good XD
04:23 Oak :)
04:26 chilts interesting thoughts ->[…]g-coding-to-kids/
04:26 chilts not sure I'd agree with the choice of languages though :)
04:26 chilts Perl ftw
04:26 eythian Not for teaching
04:26 Brooke OMG
04:27 Brooke that is like what I need
04:27 eythian Logo, Scratch, then Smalltalk (in the Squeak environment)
04:27 chilts heh
04:27 chilts where's the fun in that?
04:27 Brooke if I can't learn what a 6 year old can, there's no excuse.
04:28 eythian chilts: squeak is brilliant, you can inspect and modify any element of the running system
04:28 Brooke mmm firebug for a computer :)
04:29 eythian and if it's a GUI element you want to to inspect, you do so by right-clicking on it (or something like that)
04:29 eythian it's really good for doing f
04:29 eythian fast, effective UIs
04:29 * Brooke drools.

07:34 raj100 this is the koha koha-opac-error_log
07:35 raj100 and i am using zebra indexing. indexing is done and the search results were showing the count with out content
07:36 rangi have you been deleting biblios?
07:36 raj100 no i have not
07:38 rangi normally that error occurs if an item/biblio has been deleted but is still in the index
07:38 rangi how many biblio do you have in your db?
07:38 raj100 ok i will check and tell you now
07:39 rangi first thing i would try is
07:39 rangi run with -r -v -x b
07:39 rangi sorry -r -v -x -b

14:05 magnuse leaving that out would be fine by me
14:06 wizzyrea but yea, that brought up another idea
14:06 wizzyrea which is noted there
14:07 magnuse i'm thinking there is very little chance of the opac taking off as a social network anyway... but then again, there might be settings where it might work, like schools perhaps?
14:07 wizzyrea which is an OPAC first login tutorial
14:07 wizzyrea did you have a look at
14:07 wizzyrea not that we necessarily want to use it
14:07 wizzyrea but it might be a good example
14:08 wizzyrea on how to go about it
14:08 magnuse no, didn't have time to follow the links yet
14:11 magnuse yeah, looks interesting!
14:12 magnuse looks like it runs on Google App Engine, and has libraries for accessing the API from different programming languages?
14:12 wizzyrea *nod* I'm not sure that we'd necessarily want to run it alongside koha
14:12 wizzyrea but since it's GPL we can definitely use some of their ideas in creating our own, if we choose
14:13 magnuse yup
14:13 hdl joined #koha
14:23 Soupermanito joined #koha
14:25 wizzyrea aside, I think the ability to show something (even an external link) at first login would be cool.
14:26 magnuse wizzyrea: you mean the first time ever a patron logs on?
14:26 wizzyrea yea
14:26 magnuse ah, yes that might be cool!
14:27 wizzyrea of course a generic first login tutorial would be helpful, but the ability to redirect to custom library specific content would be nice too.
14:27 magnuse yeah!
14:27 kf A help link for a custom toturial in koha's opac would be cool
14:27 kf similar to the online help in staff
14:27 magnuse yup
14:28 wizzyrea you guys have used dropbox right?
14:28 wizzyrea and you've logged into their web interface?
14:28 magnuse it could be displayed very obviously until the user clicks "do not show this again", perhaps?
14:28 wizzyrea yea, exactly
14:28 magnuse wizzyrea: yeah, a couple times
14:29 wizzyrea you know how they walk you through a set of steps before they leave you alone?
14:29 magnuse they have little boxes pointing at things?
14:29 wizzyrea I'm thinking of something like that
14:29 wizzyrea exactly
14:29 wizzyrea "Here is your account!"
14:29 wizzyrea "Renew your books here"
14:29 magnuse yeah, that's cool!
14:29 wizzyrea "see your reading history"
14:29 wizzyrea "contact the library"
14:29 wizzyrea etc
14:29 kf perhaps soething like a beginner's mode?
14:30 magnuse yeah
14:30 kf that can be turned off by the patron
14:30 magnuse yeah!
14:30 wizzyrea yes, that's the best term I've heard for it
14:30 kf and activated by patron category
14:30 kf on creation active if you say so for the category
14:30 wizzyrea *nod*
14:30 magnuse yay
14:31 wizzyrea (and an achievement for "completing" it)
14:31 wizzyrea :P
14:31 wizzyrea like dropbox

14:34 kf it seems a little broken
14:34 kf where does beginner mode link link to?
14:34 wizzyrea well there's not a lot in that page
14:34 wizzyrea i'm not sure how it's broken it's working for me
14:35 kf the sidebar is at a odd place for me
14:35 kf lots of free space above it
14:35 kf might be something local
14:35 wizzyrea yea that happens sometimes on this wiki i'm not sure why
14:36 magnuse seems to happen when there isn't a category on the page?
14:36 libsysguy can anybody tell me the difference between a serial and a subscription
14:36 wizzyrea there should be a category now
14:38 magnuse yep, and it looks good
14:42 slef libsysguy: you subscribe to a serial?
14:43 slef anyone know why biblioitems.publicationyear wouldn't be linked to 260$c in a marc21 koha?
14:43 libsysguy so it is like Serial -> serialitems
14:43 libsysguy then serial ->subscription ->subscriptionhirtosry
14:44 wizzyrea
14:44 * magnuse goes for a walk
14:44 magnuse is now known as magnus_afk
14:46 kf slef: because we link copyrightdate to that
14:46 kf slef: and UNIMARC does publicationyear... or something like that
14:47 kf and don't ask me why
14:47 kf but it was something I ran into when I was testing acquisitions
14:52 slef kf: thanks. I'll look at copyrightdate again
14:54 slef kf: nope, we've not got copyrightdate linked to it either.
14:54 slef it's seriously unlinked. :-/

15:37 kf slef: have you checked the default frameworks?
15:39 McLean_Library sorry, but what do you mean by default frameworks?
15:39 McLean_Library I believe the issue is related to Cache::Memcached
15:40 McLean_Library which is a prerequisite for both of my missing dependencies
15:40 kf McLean_Library: I was talking so slef - sorry for causing confusion
15:40 McLean_Library oops!

15:48 wizzyrea McLean_Library: can you sudo apt-get install memcached?
15:48 aarkerio McLean_Library, look in your distro repositories
15:48 aarkerio In debian-based:   $sudo apt-get install ibcgi-session-driver-memcached-perl
15:48 McLean_Library @wizzyrea: I was able to install memcached using apt-get install memcache
15:48 huginn McLean_Library: I'll give you the answer as soon as RDA is ready
15:48 * slef offers to take those 10 degrees from kf
15:49 wizzyrea and it's not working?
15:49 McLean_Library @aarkerio:  I haven't tried that, but will now
15:49 huginn McLean_Library: downloading the Perl source
15:49 aarkerio or  $sudo apt-get install libcache-memcached-perl
15:49 wizzyrea ^^ is probably a better one
15:49 aarkerio sometimes you need restart your webserver
15:50 oleonard McLean_Library: You don't need the "@." That's why the bot huginn is complaining.
15:50 McLean_Library thanks oleonard...
15:51 slef ah, differences between twitter and IRC
15:51 slef fewer people on IRC at any one time => less need to mark nicknames

17:12 cait cool
17:13 cait I was worried I made a mistake there
17:21 wizzyrea argh!
17:21 wizzyrea somewhere there is a transit function that causes the tobranch to be mixed case
17:22 wizzyrea instead of all caps
17:24 cait oh?
17:24 wizzyrea
17:24 cait weird!
17:24 wizzyrea i'll grant you
17:24 wizzyrea that example is weird anyway
17:24 cait hm
17:24 wizzyrea because a transit to/from the same place?
17:25 cait is the description Wellsvile too?
17:25 wizzyrea w.e.i.r.d

17:25 cait I wonder it's starting with a capital

17:25 wizzyrea but it's not putting that all in
17:25 cait field is not long enough, but it's probably not what it#s doing

17:27 Soupermanito left #koha

17:36 wizzyrea this is pretty close to master.. sec
17:36 wizzyrea
17:36 cait hm
17:36 wizzyrea i think it's been happening for a while
17:36 cait but the cases are current, not older?
17:37 wizzyrea ribht
17:37 wizzyrea right*
17:37 cait hmm
17:37 cait weird
17:37 wizzyrea it doesn't happen *all* that often
17:38 wizzyrea of items currently in transit that haven't arrived (3000) probably less than a hundred have this condition?
17:38 wizzyrea dumb question of the day, how can I tell mysql to pay attention to case :P
17:39 cait I think mysql doesn#t pay attention
17:39 cait but you are right, shoud lbe possible to tell it to care
17:39 cait perhaps upper() lower()
17:40 wizzyrea (I want to ask it how many are mixed case)
17:41 cait ask for not uppercase
17:41 wizzyrea Ah
17:42 wizzyrea good call
17:42 cait not in (uppper('branchname')) perhaps
17:45 wizzyrea ^ syntax error :/
17:45 wizzyrea i'm piddling around with it
17:45 wizzyrea oh strcmp might work
17:45 wizzyrea because the strings would be different, I think?
17:45 wizzyrea maybe not.
17:47 wizzyrea mm no that's just length
17:48 slef bleah - it just took me that long to get my gravatar updated, with all the interruptions
17:48 slef I don't care. Nearly vuelta time.
17:49 slef what are we playing with?
17:49 wizzyrea well I have a case where a transfer has a tobranch of Xxxxxx instead of XXXXXX
17:49 wizzyrea and 1. I don't know why
17:50 wizzyrea and 2 I want to find only those in lower case.
17:50 wizzyrea to see how many there are.
17:51 wizzyrea upper/lower convert the strings
17:52 slef where branchname != upper(branchname) ?
17:52 wizzyrea hmm
17:53 chris_n hmm earthquake

18:03 JesseM jcamins: I felt it in CT
18:04 Agent_Dani Yep. 5.8 (preliminary) centered in Virginia.
18:06 wizzyrea pretty shallow too
18:09 oleonard wizzyrea wanted one she could have a conversation with.
18:09 wizzyrea it's true
18:09 jwagner USGS now says 5.9 magnitude
18:10 jwagner And no, we don't generally get big ones in this part of the world.  There have been a few local ones, but hardly noticeable.  The last one, I thought a large truck was driving by.
18:12 wizzyrea *nod* 5.9 is pretty big
18:12 slef any fracking in Virginia?
18:12 wizzyrea or colorado?
18:12 wizzyrea probalby almost certainly in colorado
18:12 wizzyrea friend says she felt it in indiana

22:09 rangi man law librarians love RSS
22:10 mtj heya chris , i didnt know that....
22:11 rangi neither did i
22:11 rangi its all about 'current awareness'
22:11 rangi the lawyers want to know whats new at all times
22:11 rangi
22:14 jcamins Aggregator-type page?
22:14 jcamins And, yeah, they sure do like RSS.
22:15 rangi well, what these librarians are doing, is building a page using sharepoint (puke)
22:15 rangi that aggregates feeds for the lawyers to look at
22:15 jcamins Ah. I see.
22:18 Irma G'day #koha
22:18 rangi i figure something like eric leases mylibrary
22:18 rangi
22:19 rangi i reckon a bunch of corporate libraries would do the same
22:20 rangi too many ideas, not enough hours :)
22:20 rangi hi Irma
22:20 rangi and hi druthb
22:21 druthb hi, rangi
22:21 jcamins rangi: truer words were never spoken.
22:21 Irma hi rangi .... Enjoy Wed and Thursday...Law librarians are a vivid informed and fun group!
22:21 jcamins And, on that thought, off I go.
22:21 jcamins is now known as jcamins_away
22:24 rangi what the hell
22:29 rangi Irma: yes they are :)
22:29 Irma Quick question: what should be looked at when > Searching >Keyword> Barcode> works but Searching > Barcode does not work?
22:30 Irma Circulation> Barcode search works ...
22:30 Irma Strange ...
22:31 rangi hmm
22:31 * mtj fires up his twitter/identica client after a few weeks of downtime
22:31 Irma hi mtj :-)
22:31 mtj Irma: that needs a screenshot
22:31 mtj heya
22:32 Irma mtj ;-)
22:33 mtj yeah, i cant visualize where your 'Searching > Barcode' is
22:34 Irma mtj go to Search .... in advanced searching look for Barcode under the Keyword drop down menu ...
22:34 mtj in opac?
22:37 JesseM left #koha
22:39 druthb left #koha
22:42 mtj fyi: i've confirmed the bug is in Irma's 3.2 koha, *only*
22:42 mtj so all good
22:43 Irma correction: this koha 3.2. is not hosted by us but another support company. CALYX does training etc....
22:44 mtj cool
22:44 mtj try a full zebra re-index 1st
22:46 mtj but yeah, its a weird bug on that koha
22:47 mtj or buggy framework mapping , is my next guess...
22:49 rangi thatd do it
22:49 mtj hmmm, frwrk mapping looks ok for barcode => 952$p
22:49 mtj so its not that
22:51 aarkerio so, where is the HTML opac template?
22:52 Irma yes it's a nuisance I would like to help the librarian get solved ...
22:52 rangi aarkerio: sorry? what are you asking?
22:52 mtj aaah, leading 000's in your barcode , is the bug
22:53 aarkerio I mean where is the base HTML code from all the OPAC pages?
22:53 aarkerio the <body> and so
22:54 Irma ah mtj are you sure? the number was 532 then one zero was added to match the actual barcode's number of 0532
22:54 mtj Irma: i've confirmed that bug on another 3.2
22:55 Irma thanks mtj will report back when we have it nailed!
22:55 rangi aarkerio: if you want to customise the opac, editing the templates will make it very very very hard for you to upgrade in the future, you are better off using the sysprefs and jquery and css like
22:56 rangi
22:56 rangi if you want to make changes in the template and send upstream as patches
22:56 rangi then they are in koha-tmpl/opac-tmpl/prog/en/modules/
22:57 aarkerio mmm, perfect!! thanks!
22:59 rangi but beware, local changes that arent done using the sysprefs, make it hard for you to upgrade, so upstream or use the sysprefs :)
23:03 mtj aarkerio: rangi gives you *very* wise advice :p
