03:06 wizzyrea is brooke currently travelling?
03:07 eythian I wouldn't be surprised to find so.

03:18 Doug55 joined #koha
03:19 Doug55 question to anyone out there... will koha run on SLES10 or SLES11 or must it be debian
03:20 eythian It'll run, it just may be a bit more work to get it going than on Debian.
03:20 eythian I'm sure someone has done it on SLES/OpenSuse though.
03:24 Doug55 thanks - we are looking at bywater as a conversion/support company.. any good or bad on them ??
03:24 eythian I'd say good, but I'm sure they're listening :)
03:24 wizzyrea we've had pretty good luck with them
03:25 Doug55 we would be coming from a follett circ/catalog plus system with union catalog
03:25 wizzyrea follet is well known and probably a pretty easy migration
03:26 Doug55 I assume koha has the ability to run a union type search where a user can search his/her school catalog as well as the district wide catalog
03:27 wizzyrea really all depends on how you set it up, but yes
03:27 Doug55 thanks
03:30 Doug55 anyone had any issues running it under vmware ?
03:30 eythian no, it works fine so long as your disk IO is enough
03:30 kmkale joined #koha

03:30 eythian (and "enough" isn't particularly large, just don't let it get starved)
03:30 eythian kmkale: hola!
03:31 kmkale Namaste eythian
03:31 kmkale eythian: reached safely?
03:31 Doug55 we have 10 schools - total bibs 160,000  any suggestions on memory and HD space to allocate ?
03:31 eythian yep, still feeling a bit lagged, but not too bad.
03:31 eythian Doug55: hmm, I'd say 20GB min, but the more the merrier.
03:31 kmkale cool.
03:32 eythian and @GB+ of RAM
03:32 eythian 2GB..
03:32 eythian kmkale: did you get to take a day or so off to recover?
03:33 kmkale eythian: nope. tons of work pending :(  mucho tired but cant help it
03:33 eythian ah well, I guess if stuff needs to be done...
03:33 Doug55 I was thinking 100GB HD and 4 GB RAM so it appears that should be sufficient
03:35 Doug55 thanks to both of you for all your time
03:36 eythian no worries

04:23 Judit hi
04:24 Judit in the staff client, if you want to print the result of a search, the print review is very distorted
04:24 Judit i have searched bugzilla, but no luck ( it doesnt mean it is not there)
04:24 Judit http://intranet.bywatersolutio[…]e/
04:26 Judit the opac search print review has no problem
04:30 eythian Judit: we can't see that url because it needs a login
04:30 Judit bywater
04:30 Judit bywater
04:30 Judit :)
04:31 eythian that is pretty distorted, yes
04:32 eythian I'm not sure how that can be resolved (short of making a print version of the screen), but I'm not a browser expert.
04:33 Judit what shall i do
04:33 Judit bugzilla? live with it?

07:57 eythian_mobile hi there
07:57 francharb hi eythian, how was you flight back?
07:58 rangi eythian_mobile:[…]tml/slide012.html
07:58 rangi[…]tml/slide013.html
07:59 magnuse eythian_mobile: looks interesting. just make sure it's clear that koha doesn't charge NZ$18,000 for MARC export...
07:59 rangi[…]tml/slide014.html
07:59 rangi those ones are kinda fun to talk about
07:59 magnuse Patches from monks - yay!
07:59 eythian_mobile cool ta
08:00 hdl joined #koha
08:01 eythian_mobile magnuse: yeah, that's a reference so I remember to put those things in the final thing :)
08:02 magnuse someone in nz charges that for marc export?
08:02 eythian_mobile apparently, yeah
08:02 rangi that was 6 years ago too
08:03 rangi it was to enable a feature
08:03 rangi antifeatures .. gotta love them
08:03 magnuse well it's gotta be good when it's so expensive, as opposed to koha which is free and hence can not be any good!
08:03 rangi this was just turning on the marc export option
08:03 rangi totally licensing cost
08:03 magnuse the mind boggles
08:04 rangi not an nz company either

08:18 eythian_mobile heh
08:18 kmkale OMG!! paul_p thats a new record!!!
08:19 eythian_mobile I think it took me about 45 minutes, and the traffic wasn't too bad.
08:19 kmkale heh it takes me 30  mins to get from office in thane to home in thane :)
08:20 eythian_mobile that may say more about you, perhaps ;)

12:32 druthb o/
12:33 kmkale heya druthb back home?
12:35 druthb no.   We just landed in Newark a couple of hours ago.  JesseM's parents picked him up, sekjal is on the train headed for Massachusetts, and bg and I are in separate terminals for flights later in the day.
12:36 kmkale druthb: airport, flight etc all went well?
12:36 wahanui kmkale: That doesn't look right. Try 'airport code for CITY' or 'airport name for CODE' instead.
12:36 kmkale shutup wahanui
12:36 druthb so far, so good.  We got out of Mumbai right on time, landed right on time, 15 weary hours later.
12:37 kmkale good.
12:37 druthb sekjal and I didn't get out of our seats the whole time...slept somewhat fitfully, so I'm a little tired right now.
12:38 kmkale druthb: how long till you reach home?
12:38 druthb I have two flights left; it's about 07
12:38 kmkale yikes!!
12:38 druthb 0745 here; I'll be home about 1800
12:38 druthb bg has three---here to Denver, to LAX, to Santa Barbara.
12:39 kmkale OMG. well take rest you you reach :)
12:42 druthb the ticket counter for my next leg doesn't even open for about 45 minutes, and my flight isn't for a couple of hours.  I figure I'll doodle around the shops here, maybe log on and work on the piles of email.  Then a two hour layover in Milwaukee.
12:43 kmkale druthb: no way to lay down and rest somewhere?
12:43 druthb I wouldn't rest, even if I did lay down.  I find it very hard to sleep in the presence of people that I don't know well.
12:44 kmkale humph I feel tored just reading all this
12:45 kmkale *tired too
12:45 druthb I'm in pretty good shape, really.  I got several hours on the plane from Mumbai, just not all at once.
12:46 druthb sekjal and I went to a movie Tuesday morning (Mumbai time...), and didn't do anything too strenuous.  Ra One was *awesome*, even if you don't know a lick of Hindi.
12:47 kmkale heh did you? even francharb said it wasn't too bad.
12:47 kmkale so how did you oike the song & dance?
12:48 kmkale *like
12:48 druthb I enjoyed it greatly.  sekjal did too, I think; when the lights came up for intermission, he was grinning like a fool.  Yes, the two big song and dance numbers were incredible.    Great action, awe-inspiring CGI and sets.
12:49 kmkale :)
12:49 kmkale I find it funny that you all like a typical hindi movie
12:49 kmkale I hate that stuff
12:49 druthb lol
12:50 francharb :)
12:50 druthb hi, francharb!
12:50 francharb hi druthb !
12:50 druthb :D
12:51 * francharb thinks it will a while before eating spicy food again...
12:51 francharb ;)
12:51 kmkale aww! and we made it non spicy especially for you ;)
12:52 druthb hehehehee...sekjal and bg and I had a bit here at Newark before splitting up--I went for a plate of nachos, no peppers.  not very breakfasty, but I couldn't find a hamburger at this early hour.
12:52 francharb and kmkale, this kind of movies are so unusual for us... how can we cross half of the world and not go to the movies????
12:52 francharb ;)
12:53 kmkale yup true!

13:50 nengard @later tell wizzyrea i need to know the secret to editing the documentation page - i edited it in HTML mode and the search engine is broken again - do you have it set so that people without the right permissions can't use scripts? I've had that happen when i taught classes - anyway, can you fix it and tell me how to edit the page in the future so that the search doesn't break?

14:43 oleonard I hear that's what my 4-year-old has been doing at preschool :|
14:43 nengard what's up druthb?
14:44 druthb I wonder if bg would pay me as well if I moved to open a Mumbai office of ByWater....  I've been called "sir" more times in four hours in the god-forsaken airport than I was in two WEEKS in Mumbai.
14:44 magnuse :-(
14:44 wizzyrea hrmph
14:45 druthb I finally had to tell the TSA checkpoint supervisor that if one of her people called me "sir" ONE more time, I was going to ask her to summon the airport agent-in-charge, and file an immediate complaint.
14:45 magnuse druthb++
14:45 wizzyrea druthb++
14:45 wizzyrea *big hugs*
14:45 druthb (so she apologized, then they confiscated a laser pointer that has a ton of flying miles on it.  Since I got it for free at a conference about a decade ago, I win, on points.)
14:46 wizzyrea vindictive much, geez. (the TSA, not you)
14:47 druthb I had a great trip *to* friskings, no issues--but the way back has been hell on wheels, beginning with being separated from my party in mumbai ("ladies' line", showing token respect for women...wherein they had me take my leg off to run it through the x-ray.
14:47 wizzyrea doh
14:47 druthb yah, that's unlawful in the US, but when a woman toting a .30 carbine asks me to take my leg off, then I take my leg off.
14:48 wizzyrea um yes, probably wise
14:48 magnuse sounds sensible
14:48 druthb I bawled on sekjal's shoulder a little after that--this whole business was holding up the line, and everyone was staring at me standing there with no leg.  humiliating.
14:50 paul_p then they confiscated a laser pointer that has a ton of flying miles on it => I had a similar problem once, in Paris CDG, with a platic fork, that had 1cm dents, and was non-rigid. The guy never wanted to believe it had taken a plane at least 10 times !
14:50 druthb geez
14:50 paul_p (& I didn't won, was valueless anyway. And there is a new one, that recently made Marseille <=> Mumbai without any trouble !)
14:52 druthb I thought this gal was gonna ask me to take my leg off here at Newark...I was ready to blow my stack, and call the lawyers out of the bullpen, to see if I can own me an airport.
14:52 * oleonard would fly Druthb Airlines
14:52 * wizzyrea too
14:53 druthb she actually started to say it--"sir...i mean, ma'am, could you...uhm...."  And I raised an eyebrow, and she said, quickly, "roll your pants leg up a little so I can see the ankle of the prosthetic?"
14:55 nengard heh

15:22 adminacct guys... a strange request... but where can I grab a copy of the 3.4.5 koha / koha-common deb packs? http://debian.koha-community.o[…]pool/main/k/koha/ isn't showing me any
15:24 oleonard NCARLibrary: What's the report?
15:24 wizzyrea @quote search don't ask to ask
15:24 huginn wizzyrea: 1 found: #145: "Don't ask to ask, just ask!"

15:35 NCARLibrary Can't seem get any results from it.
15:36 NCARLibrary Actually, if I enter nothing at lcsh prompt I get tons of results.
15:44 jwagner NCARLibrary, if you're wanting the 952z, assuming your system has the standard Koha to MARC mapping it would be easier to query on items.itemnotes.  But I'm not sure what the relationship is to subjects
15:47 NCARLibrary so, rather than lcsh I should use items.itemnotes?
15:47 jcamins_away NCARLibrary: I agree, you should be using items.itemnotes.
15:48 NCARLibrary So what exactly needs to change in my code?
15:48 jcamins_away SELECT biblionumber FROM items WHERE itemnotes LIKE <<Enter string>>
15:48 jcamins_away And remember you have to have a % at the beginning and end of your query.
15:49 jwagner Do you have subject terms entered in your itemnotes field?
15:49 jcamins_away jwagner: that's a red herring. The sample on the wiki uses "lcsh" and "subjects."
15:49 NCARLibrary no, just a string... "MISSING FL inventory"
15:50 * jwagner mutters about carmine fishy things....
15:51 rhcl_away is now known as rhcl
15:51 * druthb pickles herring, but won't eat it.
15:53 jcamins_away druthb: then why do you pickle it?
15:53 druthb beats letting it rot in place, I suppose.  (I've pickled some once, for someone else, as an experiment...not a regular gig for me.)
15:54 jcamins_away But if you don't eat herring, why have it around in danger of rotting?
15:55 NCARLibrary A ha! I'm getting results now...but is there a way to make the listed biblionumbers hyperlinked to records/items?
15:55 wizzyrea sql report library?
15:55 wahanui sql report library is, like, at[…]L_Reports_Library
15:55 druthb I usually don't, jcamins.  :)
15:55 jcamins_away NCARLibrary: yeah, select the hyperlink as in your example.
15:55 jwagner The earlier syntax you had around your select biblionumber field should work
15:55 wizzyrea see the bit at the top about concat
15:55 jwagner Just chop off your original query after that & use the item.itemnotes part instead
15:56 NCARLibrary okay, standby.

16:31 oleonard Hi Schuster
16:32 Schuster heyo...
16:33 huginn New commit(s) kohagit: Revert "Bug 6015 : Improving load_testing" <[…]e8bb42f763e3125d5> / Bug 5945: email not searchable in patron search <[…]d2a6b34dc4863802d>
16:33 Schuster OK so here is my problem in which I have created myself...  Being self hosted which we have loved for the last 3 years as it allows me to "adjust" as necessary and I have not had any downtime or slowness due to internet - which this year has been a blessing due to changing in our network...
16:34 Schuster Ready...  Don't throw anything...  except your hands in the air...  I have not upgraded Debian since the original install so I am still on ETCH.
16:34 Schuster Has anyone had problems upgrading their Etch to Lenny and then doing the upgrade to Squeeze?
16:35 Schuster I don't have a "new" box to move this to at this time, so am having to upgrade in place.
16:35 jcamins_away Schuster: oh my.
16:35 Schuster I'm thinking right before thanksgiving I will upgrade to Lenny..  Then right before Christmas bring me up to Squeeze.
16:36 francharb bye all
16:36 francharb is now known as francharb_away
16:36 Schuster All that said we are looking at self hosting in the future without a support company and coming back to the "true" Koha-Community code next summer.
16:37 Schuster Yeah, the don't touch it as it is working theory wasn't a good one in this situation.
16:38 jcamins_away Schuster: I've never upgraded Etch->Lenny, but I can tell you the Squeeze upgrade is pretty much painless.
16:38 Schuster looking for any and all advice or recommendations as I venture down this road of system upgrades in the next two months.  I may have a few questions as my support company doesn't do OS support just Koha support.
16:39 asaurat left #koha
16:39 jcamins_away Schuster: I think the problem you're most likely to run into is incompatible versions of Perl modules, since you must be on a pretty old version of Koha?
16:39 Schuster jcamins_away - glad to hear that...  from what I have read so far all of it looks pretty seamless and pain free.  But you all know me...  I've probably done something that will make it painful!
16:39 Schuster I'm on 3.2 or so Harley actually.
16:40 jcamins_away Schuster: hm.
16:40 Schuster I hadn't thought about my old version of Koha and its compatability with newer Perl.
16:41 jcamins_away It's not going to be the Perl core that's the problem. It's going to be the modules.
16:41 jcamins_away Here's what I'd do: make a list of all the modules installed via CPAN.
16:42 jcamins_away Figure out which of those modules are in Lenny and/or Squeeze.
16:42 jcamins_away Identify which modules will have different versions when installed via apt.
16:42 jcamins_away Bring that list back to #koha and ask if anyone sees any problems.
16:44 Schuster ok thanks for the suggestion I hadn't looked at that.
16:44 jcamins_away Schuster: anything other than Koha running on your server?
16:44 Schuster Nope.
16:44 jcamins_away Schuster: also, are you sure your server is powerful enough?
16:45 jcamins_away It seems to me that a server running Etch must be quite a few years old.
16:45 trea can anyone foresee the harm in running if hasn't been setup in cron yet on a new server?
16:45 trea assuming you have the correct environment variables specified of course
16:45 Schuster Yes - I think it will be powerful enough - it is 3 years old Dell Poweredge 2950 quadcore 16 gig ram.
16:46 Schuster The mysql lives on a seperate Dell 2590 server.
16:46 jcamins_away Huh... I thought Lenny had been around longer than that.
16:46 Schuster This all started because I'm looking at some development, but also moving back to community and "do you need new servers or are you going to cloud host it"...
16:47 jcamins_away I thought you said you weren't getting new servers _or_ moving to the cloud?
16:48 Schuster Servers came up fall of 2008.  So Almost 4 years.
16:49 sophie_m left #koha
16:49 Schuster When I move to Koha-community I will have to do something either new servers at that time OR cloud - next summer.
16:49 jcamins_away Okay, gotcha. But first you need a migration path.
16:49 Schuster So maybe I do nothing and ride this out without the development changes we want to see....  hmmm  that's a thought....
16:50 matts is now known as matts_away
16:51 Schuster Yes... migration path...  I've been able to install squeeze on a laptop and take my existing database and "upgrade" it to 3.6 and it doesn't look like I've lost anything but yet gained funcationality etc...  Granted I have not put it through the ringer yet, just preliminary tests.
16:52 Schuster There are things I have done locally that when I move back to community I will need to "redo" and see about submitting to community.  I've almost got a mobile web ready to go but it is using the old template system so would have to "redo" it for TT.
16:53 Oak me go now.
16:53 Oak left #koha
16:54 jcamins_away Schuster: I'd suggest looking at getting those done earlier rather than later.
16:55 * chris_n pushes the first auto-generated release notes
16:55 chris_n[…]1166f4fee885f8903
16:55 jcamins_away Schuster: if you can get it into 3.8, it'll be there if you use 3.8, and much easier to backport if you use 3.6.
16:55 Schuster The local changes?  Yes that was one of the reasons I got this laptop up and running
16:56 wizzyrea chris_n++!
16:56 wizzyrea that's awesome!
16:56 jcamins_away Schuster: excxellent. :)
16:56 Schuster chris_n++
16:56 chris_n well, not 100% automagic, it still uses a template
16:56 wizzyrea even so!
16:56 chris_n but will update the bugfixes and contributors automatically
16:57 wizzyrea pft, flavor text is unnecessary to generate each time :)
16:57 * chris_n hopes to get a cron job together to do the update daily or weekly
16:57 Schuster I just have to refresh myself on how to conjur git with this laptop to get my patches sent.  Did it once, but it wasn't pretty.

16:57 wizzyrea luckily for you the documentation has gotten a lot better.
16:58 jcamins_away And rangi and gmcharlt have liberally shared their knowledge.
16:58 wizzyrea *nod*
16:58 Schuster Koha continually gets better every day with the things I see.  I hope that once I'm back working with Koha-community I can work on sign offs and be more productive.
16:58 wizzyrea rangi++ gmcharlt++
16:58 wizzyrea we like more productive
16:59 wizzyrea :)
16:59 * wizzyrea is more productive on Koha than I was on LLILS
16:59 Schuster The community as a whole was the main reason we selected Koha in the first place over other systems.
17:00 oleonard paying_for_something_youre_not_getting--
17:00 Schuster Then things happened, and I had to ride the wave to see where we came ashore...  now I'm getting ready to paddle out again...
17:00 Schuster Yes they paying for was something we had with our last ILS before Koha and I kept wondering ...  When will that Inventory enhancement come...

17:47 NCARLibrary It puts QA871 before QA9
17:47 jcamins_away NCARLibrary: that's just the way it works with reports.
17:47 NCARLibrary no way to order using LOC?
17:47 wizzyrea does sql know how to order using LOC?

17:48 NCARLibrary oh well
17:48 jcamins_away NCARLibrary: not without a great deal of effort on your part.
17:48 NCARLibrary meaning it would require lots of savvy coding?

19:19 wizzyrea xercode almost certainly is
19:20 jwagner no, I did the patch and it didn't apply, I haven't gone back to look at it.  Someone else is welcome to have a go.

19:21 aarkerio mmm, where can I get and install the patch?
19:21 jcamins_away aarkerio: even if the patch were in there, all it does is enable Koha to provide a link to a link resolver.
19:21 jcamins_away So unless you have a link resolver, you can't make any use of it.
19:22 jwagner Correct -- I worked it up for one of my sites which has SFX
19:22 jwagner But was trying to make it more generic
19:22 aarkerio I think save journals with all articles data (title, author, date) is a very common request in Koha,   isn't?
19:22 rangi not common enough for someone to pay anyone to get it done :)
19:23 jcamins_away aarkerio: not very. If it's something you really wanted, and were willing to pay for, it would be possible to develop something to ingest data from tictocs.
19:23 jcamins_away It would not be inexpensive, though.
19:24 jcamins_away aarkerio: and most journals don't have indexing available anywhere online anyway.
19:24 aarkerio rangi:  ;-)   true!
19:26 aarkerio jcamins_away, well, I find many of the journals have RSS
19:26 jcamins_away aarkerio: in that case you are in a very fortunate field. ;)
19:27 aarkerio mmmm, so, what can I do? just save the ISSN with the volume, year and item number?   no articles data?
19:28 aarkerio I can find the ISSN using z39.50 servers
19:28 jcamins_away aarkerio: you could enter it in manually.
19:29 * druthb1 must be getting tired...had a double-take just now when someone who looked quite a lot like wizzyrea came walking by.
19:29 wizzyrea :)
19:29 oleonard That's just a glitch in the Matrix druthb1
19:31 druthb1 closer inspection showed that she appears to be about 5-10 years older than wizzy...but could be her older sister.  Same basic shape, same face, almost, same hairdo, same sunny smile.  Downright creepy.

19:31 wizzyrea hey i'mno creepy
19:31 wizzyrea i'm not creepy :)
19:32 druthb1 :P   silly wizzyrea!  just spooky seeing you talking here, and moments later, thinking I saw you walking by.
19:32 * druthb1 is still looking for the triplet of magnuse and trea.
19:32 oleonard wizzyrea is secretly stalking you?
19:32 wizzyrea it's no secret :P
19:32 druthb1 !
19:32 trea lol
19:32 * druthb1 would be lucky to be stalked by wizzyrea
19:32 * wizzyrea puts on her creepy face
19:33 wizzyrea chris_n++ yay for releases!
19:34 aarkerio how can I save a single scientific article in Koha?
19:34 aarkerio in cataloguing?
19:34 jcamins_away aarkerio: you'll have to catalog it yourself. There's no way to "save" data into Koha.
19:35 jcamins_away Yes.
19:37 cait you can do that in different ways
19:38 * chris_n carefully examines wizzrea's label's bug
19:38 wizzyrea were you able to replicate?
19:39 libsysguy joined #koha
19:40 libsysguy hey #Koha
19:40 rangi hey libsysguy
19:40 wahanui libsysguy is Koha's hottest developer or partying with swedes on his deck
19:40 * wizzyrea giggles madly
19:41 libsysguy never gets old
19:41 libsysguy are there any javascript masters poking around in here
19:41 * wizzyrea looks for oleonard
19:41 aarkerio I mean, since almost all articles are medical articles I can found them in PubMed and export the XML and the cataloguing them one by one
19:41 oleonard libsysguy: I can try to help
19:42 libsysguy hey oleonard
19:42 wahanui hmmm... oleonard is the master UI designer of koha or an awesome bug wrangler
19:42 libsysguy ok so I have this site
19:42 libsysguy and i am using superfish to generate the menus
19:42 aarkerio need I create an " analytical record"  for each article?
19:42 libsysguy and some js to do that sliding thing
19:42 * chris_n carefully examines rangi's latest fix for
19:43 chris_n and zaps it with 'git revert'
19:43 libsysguy but the slider overlays the menu
19:43 wizzyrea oh snap
19:43 libsysguy so I've peen playing around with z-index to no avail
19:43 * druthb1 waves to libsysguy.
19:43 jcamins_away libsysguy: it's something to do with display.
19:43 libsysguy hi druthb1
19:43 wizzyrea chris_n++ <3 thanks for looking at that
19:44 libsysguy jcamins_away: really?
19:44 libsysguy i wouldn't have suspected that
19:44 jcamins_away libsysguy: I'm pretty sure.
19:45 jcamins_away libsysguy: you have to explicitly set it to whatever it's inheriting, maybe?
19:45 chris_n wizzyrea, trea: that did not make it into 3.6.0 fwiw
19:45 wizzyrea right, only on master
19:45 libsysguy so set the display to block then use clearfix?
19:46 trea sorry, chris_n, terminology fail. we have partners on master with the problem
19:46 chris_n ahh
19:46 trea the perils of living on the bleeding edge
19:46 chris_n you can just revert commit 607b5449bd
19:47 rangi trea: the way i think of it, is they are on 3.7
19:47 trea good point, rangi
19:47 rangi like htey were one 3.5 until 3.6 was released
19:47 jcamins_away libsysguy: possibly? I'm not a JS expert, so I don't know what clearfix is.
19:47 rangi what the hell
19:47 rangi like they were on 3.5
19:47 trea i speak typo :D
19:47 rangi :)
19:48 rangi @later tell paul_p i sent you a patch fo fix the templates not being translatable failing tests
19:48 huginn rangi: The operation succeeded.
19:48 * druthb1 is gonna get up, and walk around, and try to find some headache pills, about an hour left on this layover before boarding.  Might be back today, might be tomorrow before you see me.
19:49 wizzyrea later druthb1
19:49 libsysguy jcamins_away: clearfix is just a way to clear floats
19:49 rangi cya druthb1
19:49 libsysguy later druthb1
19:49 trea take care druthb1, safe travels
19:49 druthb1 thanx, everyone.
19:50 druthb1 left #koha
19:50 jcamins_away libsysguy: then, yes, I suspect that's what needs to be done.
19:51 wizzyrea chris_n: you wanna tell paul_p to revert that one?
19:51 wizzyrea or should I just go ahead and file a bug

19:53 wizzyrea ty kindly
19:54 chris_n they need to be corrected for perl critic, but it will take a bit of re-writing
19:54 * wizzyrea wonders about this one too
19:54 wizzyrea[…]ec56ae6585547c593
19:55 trea hmmm
19:55 chris_n no, that is ok
19:56 * wizzyrea just wanted to check
19:56 chris_n the problem is that the offending lines in depend upon modification of $_ to work correctly
19:56 edveal joined #koha
19:57 chris_n they are adding a hash element to the array which is non-existent rather than simply modifying an already existing element
19:57 aarkerio hi! there is  way to import a Bibtex or an EndNote in Koha?
19:58 wizzyrea ah yea
19:59 jcamins_away aarkerio: no, you'd have to convert the BibTeX or EndNote record into MARC first.
20:00 aarkerio and if I convert can I import it?
20:00 jcamins_away aarkerio: yes, Koha uses MARC.
20:00 jcamins_away You use the Stage MARC Records tool.
20:02 aarkerio mmm, where can I found the "Import" option?
20:02 jcamins_away aarkerio: Stage MARC Records.
20:02 jcamins_away In the Tools section.
20:02 aarkerio perfect! thanks!
20:03 jcamins_away If you find a good way to convert BibTeX or RIS to MARC, I'd be interested in hearing about it.
20:06 aarkerio I downloading this:
20:09 jcamins_away aarkerio: and then you'll write your own conversion? Good luck!

20:24 jcamins_away chris_n: what does the change you made do?
20:25 jcamins_away Or what did it do before you reverted it. I can't figure out what on earth the effect of those lines is.
20:26 chris_n do you mean what do those greps do?
20:26 jcamins_away What I can't figure out is the => thingy.
20:27 chris_n that assigns the value of $_ to the hash element 'batch_id' or 'label_id'
20:28 rangi basically the problem with the current implementation
20:28 chris_n the array element then becomes a single-element, anonymous hash
20:28 rangi is changing lists inline is frowned upon
20:28 jcamins_away Uhhh... where did the hash come from?
20:28 rangi but my fix broke it :)
20:28 jcamins_away Ohh.
20:28 jcamins_away I see.
20:28 rangi so it wasnt any better
20:29 chris_n its created by the code inside the grep
20:29 chris_n its a bit obfuscated
20:29 jcamins_away A bit?!?
20:29 jcamins_away ;)
20:29 chris_n it is probably better form to use a foreach or some such
20:29 rangi yup
20:29 chris_n to walk through the array
20:30 chris_n but obfuscation is sort of cool
20:30 * chris_n ducks
20:31 * wizzyrea readies the rotting tomatoes
20:31 rangi jcamins_away: heres what i was tring to fix, badly
20:31 jcamins_away So basically grep is acting as an in-place map?
20:31 chris_n basically, in an abused sort of way
20:31 rangi[…]tingListFunctions
20:32 rangi basically inline modifications causes side effects which can bite you in arse later
20:32 rangi so i shoulda done a for
20:33 rangi but i was trying to be tricky too
20:33 rangi tricky--
20:33 jcamins_away Ah.
20:33 chris_n since I am already re-declaring the array, it does not much matter in this case
20:33 chris_n but if you were passing the original array around for general consumption, you'd be in trouble
20:33 rangi until someone changes the redeclaring bit ;)
20:33 chris_n right
20:34 rangi but working and dangerous is better than not working at all :)
20:34 chris_n hehe
20:35 edveal left #koha
20:35 chris_n in this case I think we could actually get away with just 'grep{$_ = foo} @bar;
20:35 jcamins_away chris_n: so wouldn't it be better to use map { {label_id => $_} } @label_ids (or whatever the syntactically correct version of that is)?
20:36 chris_n actually, both behave the same here
20:36 chris_n the really issue is modifying $_
20:37 rangi[…]-amongst-hackers/
20:37 chris_n but technically we are map(ping) I suppose

20:42 lculber Can someone help think through a weird keyword search issue in 3.6?
20:42 chris_n jcamins_away: actually I think you put me on to the "fix" for critic
20:42 chris_n rangi: will this make critic happy:
20:42 chris_n @batch_ids = map{{batch_id => $_}} @batch_ids;
20:42 chris_n @label_ids = map{{label_id => $_}} @label_ids;
20:43 chris_n there we don't modify $_

20:44 wizzyrea lculber: go ahead anytime
20:44 lculber thanks wizzyrea: I have a keyword search for school + census that is slow
20:45 lculber all other searches okay. weird.
20:46 lculber why would that one combination cause a minute or longer search?
20:46 wizzyrea hmm
20:46 wizzyrea in my data that exact search doesn't cause any problem
20:46 wizzyrea (that's on master)
20:47 chris_n rangi: how does one get it to run on @all_koha_dirs?
20:47 chris_n @dirs omits labels
20:47 huginn chris_n: I'll give you the answer as soon as RDA is ready
20:47 chris_n thanks huginn
20:47 jcamins_away lculber: I just tried that search on your catalog and it didn't seem to take very long.
20:47 wizzyrea is that the exact search, school + census?
20:48 lculber jcamins:  okay in 3.4  It is slow on 3.6 test server
20:48 jcamins_away Ah.
20:48 jcamins_away Hrm.
20:48 rangi chris_n: yeah just add it to dirs
20:48 rangi im slowly adding more
20:48 wizzyrea "test server" possibly?
20:48 wizzyrea (i.e. poorer hardware)
20:48 * wizzyrea goes for the obvious
20:48 wizzyrea (but not necessarily correct ;))
20:49 lculber wizzyrea: yes, and me possibly.  I did the install.
20:49 rangi chris_n: the plan is to add a dir, fix all the complaints, add the next etc
20:49 chris_n passes
20:49 rangi chris_n: yay!
20:49 wizzyrea WOO for you guys fixing that, seriously
20:49 * wizzyrea throws the confetti

20:51 wizzyrea ^^
20:51 wizzyrea is the test server public?
20:51 lculber jcamins_away:  yes, the data is the same.  At first I thought it was all keywords but not

21:38 rangi hmm they were working
21:38 eythian I need to get on to finishing up that last ticket.
21:39 rangi at least when i wrote the initial patch they did
21:39 rangi maybe the api changed

21:43 rangi ohh
21:43 cait eythian: so you are coming? yay :)
21:44 eythian Well, I'll certainly try.
21:44 slef rangi: I'm struggling to spot the openlibrary cover pl code :-/ where is it?
21:45 rangi pl code?
21:45 rangi its all js
21:45 slef rangi: code in a .pl file
21:45 rangi the only .pl would be setting the template var to tell it to use it
21:45 slef yeah, I'm not even seeing that
21:46 slef or do all templates get all opac* prefs now?
21:46 slef and ewww yuck on it all being js
21:46 slef ;-)

21:47 rangi in C4/
21:47 rangi its there
21:47 slef well, that's not what the docs I saw said
21:47 rangi what docs
21:47 slef
21:48 slef[…]/$value-$size.jpg
21:48 rangi yeah its using the books api
21:48 rangi not the covers api
21:48 slef why?
21:48 rangi becaus the covers one wasnt there
21:48 slef ah that's a fine explanation
21:48 * slef looks for the books api docs
21:48 eythian also, it'd be easier to detect and handle the non-existence of a cover with the books API, I'd think.
21:49 rangi should be
21:49 rangi read api might be even better
21:49 rangi
21:49 eythian It's for doing batch stuff, iirc?
21:49 eythian which'd be good for search results
21:49 rangi i started work on that
21:49 rangi yeah
21:49 rangi
21:50 slef I bloody hate js. Nothing is simple. Function names and callbacks.
21:50 eythian JS is pretty clean really
21:51 slef Bloody APL is easier to debug.
21:51 eythian it's all the browser cruft that's annoying.
21:51 slef which is the only way to run js, isn't it?
21:51 eythian nope
21:51 eythian not at all
21:51 * eythian did a lot of non-browser JS in a past life
21:52 slef yeah, but of this type of code
21:52 slef setting src attributes and so on
21:53 eythian yeah, that's cause you're using it manipulate a DOM. I'm not convinced it's the best language for that, but it's the only one we have, alas.
21:53 melia is now known as melia_lunch
21:54 slef xslt sometimes, but bottom line is that you can't trust a browser to run this

21:57 slef ISBN:048627263X if you'd like to play along at home
21:57 eythian hmm
21:57 rangi it used to, thats why i was saying, maybe the api has changed
21:57 eythian I wonder if it's requiring an exact ISBN
21:57 eythian (ie. one in the same format that OL knows it as)
21:58 eythian I know that's the case with a prototype API I've been working with
21:58 slef books API for ISBN:048627263X returns ID OL22321034M - but the one with that ISBN and the cover is OL1716091M
21:59 slef any ideas?
21:59 wahanui any ideas are welcome :)
21:59 slef and
21:59 eythian slef: they're the same book
22:00 eythian so I guess the APIs may do the lookup in a different order.
22:00 aarkerio hi! how can I add "Abstract" framework to cataloguing options?
22:00 slef eythian: is something broken at
22:00 eythian no, I suppose it just hasn't realised they're duplicates.
22:01 slef eythian: this was working for no books, though. Let me go try another.
22:02 eythian I can't see any obvious method for flagging things as duplicates
22:03 eythian OK, sent it in through the "problem" form
22:03 ago left #koha
22:07 slef where's the problem form? 0262560992 is also duplicated, but both have covers
22:08 wizzyrea out of curiosity
22:08 slef Does openlibrary have books that aren't duplicated? ;-)
22:08 wizzyrea regarding chris_n's revert and subsequent fix of the deal with label creator
22:08 slef sorry, biab
22:08 wizzyrea in my test system, I reverted the patch
22:09 wizzyrea what happens when I go to do a git pull/
22:09 wizzyrea ?
22:09 wizzyrea anything?
22:09 wahanui anything is possible with enough development work :)
22:09 wizzyrea I love wahanui.
22:09 eythian slef: right at the bottom
22:09 wizzyrea (the git pull will have his patch to fix the change that necessitated the revert, in this scenario)
22:09 eythian wizzyrea: it'll either work it out for you, or it won't and it'll nag you about it
22:10 wizzyrea hm
22:10 wizzyrea because it's merging?
22:10 slef eythian: "[Report this page or content as spam] Problem?"
22:10 eythian I put it under "Other"
22:11 slef eythian: OIC. So they have the wrong alt text :-/
22:12 eythian I didn't see the alt-text, but yeah, apparently so
22:12 eythian Perhaps include that in your problem report :)
22:13 slef Done. Help Case #1414

22:26 rangi im not RM anymore, if you want to pick a fight, i no longer have shackles
22:26 rangi go right ahead
22:26 jwagner I don't particularly want to pick a fight, but you seem determined to.  I would point out that I actually answered the original question, which was how to do customizations
22:26 rangi you linked to
22:27 rangi one of the major whole pile of mess things
22:27 rangi you know that
22:27 jwagner Yes, I did.  That's where the presentation lives.  You are welcome to copy it over to the community site if you wish.
22:27 jwagner And I also know that we repeatedly have offered to work with you on that site.  I had a lengthy conversation with Bob Birchall last year on that subject, in his role as a member of the committee.
22:28 rangi i dont care
22:28 jwagner There was no response of any kind.
22:28 rangi your company is still trying to trademark Koha in nz
22:28 rangi you do your own releases, just leave us alone
