14:39 cait 5974
14:39 kmkale hi jcamins
14:39 kmkale hi francharb
14:39 cait oh I so miss huginn
14:39 francharb hi kmkale
14:39 jcamins Hi kmkale.
14:40 kmkale so how's sunday coming along?
14:40 * jcamins too
14:40 jcamins kmkale: we're almost done with our co-op application.
14:40 jcamins More than 200 pages.
14:40 kmkale mine's almost over. Just finished dinner
14:41 kmkale jcamins: co-op like slef's?
14:41 jcamins We'll be having breakfast shortly.
14:41 jcamins kmkale: no, it's a co-op building.
14:41 jcamins It's a New York thing. Instead of just buying apartments outright, you have to join the co-op that controls the building.
14:41 kmkale jcamins: residence or library?
14:41 jcamins Residence.
14:42 jcamins It's a really nice building, but the application process is a bit painful.
14:42 kmkale aahh. Good for you then :) new house
14:42 jcamins Yup.
14:43 kmkale dont the estate agents handle that sorta thingi?
14:43 jcamins Not really.
14:44 jcamins We're meeting with the broker today to go over the application, so hopefully he'll help a bit, but mostly he just gave us the 45-page form and said "fill this out."
14:44 kmkale Here they prepare everything. We just have to go to the registrar's office and sign
14:44 kmkale and pay of sourse ;)
14:45 jcamins Of course.
14:45 francharb jcamins, but then, you will be part of the co-op right?
14:45 jcamins francharb: if we're approved, yes.
14:46 francharb jcamins, you're bying your apartment or you rent one which part of a co-op?
14:47 jcamins We're buying.
14:47 jcamins Time for breakfast! Be back in a few minutes.
14:49 kmkale bye all. see ya tomorrow..
14:52 francharb bye kmkale !

15:00 * jcamins returns, having breakfasted.
15:00 cait heh :)
15:01 * cait advertises her bug again ... 5974 :)
15:01 cait or a nice typo fix
15:01 jcamins rangi's follow-up for 6629 doesn't fix the problem.
15:01 cait jcamins: hm did for me
15:01 cait I ran into the problem you described
15:01 cait with the update for fines in day
15:01 cait s
15:02 cait another easy one (before I forget the number again): 7143
15:02 jcamins Oh, maybe I applied the wrong patch?
15:02 jcamins Which patch?
15:02 wahanui Which patch are we talking about?
15:02 jcamins Oh, it's already signed off.
15:02 jcamins Never mind.
15:02 cait yeah, i did this morning
15:02 cait but I see he did more
15:03 jcamins Right, but I need to apply the signed-off patch first.
15:04 * jcamins was just confused.
15:05 cait hm
15:05 cait what to reply to joel?
15:05 jcamins "Be patient."
15:06 jcamins And "subscribe to koha-devel if you're using git."
15:06 jcamins I sent out a warning message yesterday.
15:06 cait yep, I saw it
15:07 jcamins How do I attach something using git-bz?
15:07 cait git bz attach -e bugnumber HEAD
15:08 cait the -e brings up the eidor
15:08 cait editor
15:08 cait you have to be fast
15:08 cait but you can obsolete apatch this way, uncommenting it
15:10 jcamins Thanks.
15:21 jcamins That's pretty cool, incidentally.
15:21 cait :)
15:21 cait could you help me with something?
15:22 jcamins I can try.
15:22 jcamins What's up?
15:22 cait 6894
15:23 cait paul failed it but it works for me - could you double check?
15:23 jcamins Grr. huginn! We miss you!
15:23 jcamins huginn huginn huginn
15:23 cait I wrote gmcharlt
15:23 cait an email
15:23 cait asking to bring back huginn :)
15:24 jcamins :)
15:24 jcamins Let me respond to Joel, then I'll see if I can test it.
15:25 cait thank you!
15:37 jcamins E-mailed.
15:40 cait jcamins++
15:41 jcamins cait: I don't have much experience with acquisitions, and I can't figure this out.
15:41 jcamins Sorry.
15:41 jcamins :(
15:42 cait ah, it's really quite easy
15:42 cait but it's ok
15:42 cait perhaps the comment will work :(
15:42 cait in fact you would only have to add a suggestion form opac and then open that suggestoin in the suggestion module
15:43 cait and check the pull down for currency at the bottom
15:43 jcamins Ohh.
15:43 jcamins From the *OPAC*.
15:43 jcamins Let me try again.
15:43 cait you can also add one from staff  - the result sould be the same, offering usd, not ca
15:43 cait d
15:44 jcamins I can confirm the bug.
15:44 jcamins I'll test the fix.
15:44 cait thx :)
15:44 jcamins Works for me.
15:45 cait yay :)
15:45 jcamins When I created a suggestion in the staff client, it didn't have this problem.
15:45 jcamins Maybe you can't fill in the price?
15:46 * jcamins reads through the rest of the bug.
15:46 jcamins Actually, I can confirm the bug in both places.
15:47 jcamins It's *creating* a new suggestion in the staff client, but *editing* a suggestion created in the OPAC.
15:47 cait hm?
15:47 jcamins I thought after I created a suggestion in the staff client, when I went back to edit it the currency would be wrong.
15:48 cait hm no it should be empt
15:48 cait y
15:48 cait until you open it in the suggestoin module
15:48 cait and there it preselected the wrong currency
15:48 cait so when you didn't pay attention, you would get strange currencies in there
15:51 jcamins Yup.
15:51 * jcamins attached the signed off patch.
15:51 jcamins Right.
15:51 magnuse jcamins++
15:51 magnuse cait++
15:53 cait jcamins++
15:56 jcamins Shari is reading through the entire application.
15:57 cait Shari++ :)
15:57 jcamins If she manages to do that in one sitting, I can only say she has the patience of a saint.
15:57 magnuse i just gotta say: wow!
16:00 jcamins Oh, that too. :)

17:34 sandeepbhavsar Hi all
17:34 sandeepbhavsar I would like to integrate  EBSCO, Open access databases, through pazpar2 in Koha. Kindly guide me for the documentation. Step by step screenshots or video of the process in lecture form will be preferred.
17:36 cait sandeepbhavsar: I am not aware this has been done before
17:37 cait so it's unlikely there is documentation abou tit
17:37 Guillaume1 joined #koha
17:37 cait you might have to figure it out on your own
17:37 sandeepbhavsar left #koha
17:51 jcamins_away Am I the only one who finds that request very off-putting?
17:52 jcamins_away is now known as jcamins
17:54 cait nope
17:54 cait it's been on the mailing list before too, now the second time
18:08 jcamins Yeah, and I found it off-putting there, too.
18:08 magnuse i'm with you jcamins

18:47 rangi very demanding in tone
18:49 magnuse kia ora rangi
18:49 cait morning rangi :)
18:49 magnuse how's monday morning? ;-)
18:49 rangi so far so good
18:49 Guillaume1 left #koha
18:49 magnuse yay
18:49 ibeardslee sure .. please provide the necessary software to interact with, the video gear and $150 per hour
18:50 rangi heh
18:50 cait lol
18:50 druthb joined #koha
18:51 druthb kia ora.
18:51 magnuse i wonder if it's just a language thing - if it's meant different from how it sounds
18:51 magnuse o/
18:51 rangi quite possible magnuse
18:51 rangi hey druthb :)
18:52 jcamins Yeah, I know it's probably a language thing, but it's still irritating.
18:53 magnuse it is!
18:53 jcamins The cookie bars are in the oven, though, and that's what matters.
18:54 * magnuse has pizza in the oven (again!)
18:54 cait cooooookies...
18:54 jcamins magnuse: pizza _Sunday_?
18:54 * druthb joins cait in the chant.  "coooooookies"
18:54 jcamins pizza_sundy++
18:54 cait coooookies!
18:55 jcamins pizza_sunday++
18:55 * jcamins seriously considers throwing together some pizza dough.
18:55 magnuse yay
18:55 * druthb seriously considers kidnapping jcamins
18:55 magnuse every day is pizza day
18:55 magnuse (or can be)
18:55 jcamins And should be!
18:58 magnuse yay! that's the spirit!
19:00 * magnuse wanders off to eat pizza and watch "Machete" - and realises that might not be a clever combo
19:00 magnuse see ya!
19:00 magnuse is now known as magnus_away
19:00 rangi Hehe
19:00 rangi he killed the bad guys, he got the women, machete
19:02 indradg looks like i missed some fun
19:02 indradg jcamins, its primarily is a language thing... but not entirely that
19:03 * jcamins does his best to be understanding.
19:04 jcamins Some days with more success than others.
19:04 indradg yeah
19:05 indradg but sandeep must have been needing it bad... wont have been on IRC otherwise :P
19:06 rangi wow its a lot windier here than in island bay
19:06 indradg @wunder kolkata
19:06 jcamins indradg: huginn's down.
19:06 indradg awww :(
19:06 jcamins We're all suffering quite a lot from that. ;)
19:07 jcamins What baffles me about the message is that he resends the exact same message even when it doesn't get any response.
19:08 indradg jcamins, its whats Torvalds said about india and FOSS... most peeps into using FOSS sees it like a bottomless pit and the devels are people who can be badgered into helping
19:09 jcamins I'd think that would slow down FOSS adoption.
19:09 jcamins With people expecting help that they'll never get.
19:09 rangi bbiab
19:09 rangi off to meetings
19:09 jcamins (and then being angry about how FOSS has "failed" them)
19:09 indradg writing or tinkering with code just because it is fun and rewarding in itself is now a concept shared by many in india
19:11 indradg jcamins, guess what.. recently I encountered fantastic M$FT driven FUD in the government segment here - top officials commenting in meeting - "you know Free Software is not really free, you have to buy subscriptions to the community, only then the community helps"
19:11 indradg s/now/not
19:12 jcamins indradg: that's what I mean- the idea that FOSS developers should be available to solve everything would make FUD like that much easier to disseminate.
19:13 indradg yeah\
19:16 jcamins Ah well. I'm not going to solve the problems of the world via IRC. ;)
19:16 indradg :D
19:17 jcamins Until I'm made dictator of the world, of course.
19:17 jcamins Then I will make all my decrees via IRC. ;)
19:17 druthb as long as it involves "cookies for all!" then I'm backin' you, jcamins.
19:18 jcamins Cookies *and* fudge for all.
19:18 druthb wahoo!
19:21 * druthb pokes at Pandora to give Cat Stevens yet another thumbs-down.  I thought after you nixed someone a few times, you'd never hear 'em again.
19:22 * druthb envisions the programmers saying, "oh, yes, but *everyone* likes Cat Stevens, so we'll ignore that for him," and thinks evil, evil thoughts.
19:23 indradg lol
19:24 jcamins LOL
19:24 druthb I've managed to game it a little.  I have a station where I only thumbs-up about four artists...Everyone else gets ignored or thumbs-down.  Those four artists get played a *lot*, and they're all pretty prolific, so plenty for it to choose from.
19:25 jcamins Whoops. Didn't mean caps, though I did actually laugh out loud.
19:25 indradg hehe
