12:18 jcamins_away Good morning cait and drojf.
12:19 drojf hi jcamins_away
12:20 cait good morning jcamins_away :)
12:21 jcamins_away Wow!
12:22 jcamins_away The quote uploader is amazing!
12:23 * cait hums happy birthday
12:24 * chris_n wishes happy birthday to whoever
12:25 * cait whispers j...
12:26 jcamins_away chris_n: is there any way to force the quote of the day feature to choose a new quote?
12:26 * jcamins pokes the quote uploader.
12:27 jcamins Clicking "Save quotes" doesn't appear to have done anything.
12:33 jcamins chris_n: is there a trick to get the uploader to save quotes?
12:36 chris_n that should do it
12:36 chris_n what browser?
12:36 jcamins Chrome.
12:36 chris_n jcamins: there are two other methods of choosing quotes
12:37 chris_n see perldoc C4::Koha
12:37 jcamins Okay, found the problem.
12:37 jcamins There's a syntax error.
12:38 * chris_n is not surprised
12:39 jcamins You have extra backslashes.
12:42 chris_n the backslashes can be omitted altogether
12:42 * chris_n fixes it up
12:43 jcamins Yeah, I just took them out.
12:45 jcamins chris_n: I see how to select different quotes programmatically, but how do I tell the system to use a different random quote every time the OPAC is displayed?
12:45 jcamins (from the interface)
12:45 jcamins Can I do that?
12:47 jcamins When I edit a quote, shouldn't my changes show up?
12:47 chris_n yes, but jEditable requires you use the enter key not just click away from the field
12:47 jcamins Ah.
12:47 chris_n I'm guessing to avoid unintended changes
12:48 jcamins Yeah, that works perfectly.
12:48 chris_n there is no way at present to change the selection algorithym execpt programatically
12:49 chris_n a syspref could be added
12:49 jcamins I actually just wanted to see that another quote would show up, so I tried deleting today's quote.
12:49 jcamins It worked fine.
12:49 chris_n pass in 'random => 1' to get a random quote
12:50 chris_n there are several extentions to this which could be added w/o too much trouble
12:51 jcamins I'm just fixing issues I find in a follow-up patch, which I'll then ask you to sign off on.
12:53 jcamins Hm.
12:53 jcamins Sorting does not work.
12:53 chris_n sounds good
12:54 jcamins Any ideas why?
12:54 chris_n I did just attach a patch to fix the save issue
12:54 chris_n for which table?
12:55 jcamins In the main editor.
12:55 * chris_n looks
13:01 chris_n hmm... I'll have to fixup the server-side to handle that
13:01 chris_n it was on the list, but apparently disappeared somewhere down in the depths of the buffer
13:04 * chris_n will fix that now
13:17 jcamins That's the only remaining problem I can find.
13:19 jcamins Oh, it should be QOTD instead of QOD. I'll change that.
13:19 jcamins (because it's MOTD instead of MOD)
13:23 chris_n did I miss one
13:23 jcamins Yeah, on tools-home.
13:23 jcamins It's in my follow-up.
13:23 jcamins Were you able to figure out the sorting?
13:41 Romel joined #koha
13:44 chris_n yes
13:44 chris_n finishing up now
13:44 Romel I am a student at the University of North Texas and I am presenting a report on Koha. I have reserached the Koha website, however I am needing contact information to someone that I can ask questions about Koha automation system. Our class assignment we had to choose from a list of automated systems and I chose Bywaters-Koha. I have contacted Bywaters and spok
13:45 chris_n when DT is run in server-side mode, everything must be done server-side... :-)
13:45 jcamins Romel: your message is cut-off at "and spok"
13:45 jcamins Romel: also, it's ByWater not Bywaters.
13:46 jcamins And I don't think anyone from ByWater is around. It's Saturday morning.
13:46 jcamins chris_n: there is a certain amount of logic to that. ;)
13:46 Romel with Mr. Curulla who has provided me with a wealth of information for Bywater. I am wanting to get information for a contact person for Koha. Sorry my mistake, ByWater Solutions. Thank you
13:46 jcamins Romel: there is no "contact person for Koha."
13:46 jcamins It's an open source project.
13:47 Romel Oh Okay, I noticed on the Koha website that there was not any tab for that. Oh well I can jsut tell my instructor. Thank you guys!
13:47 jcamins If you have technical questions, you can ask them on the channel, or on the mailing list (but make sure you've read through the documentation!), but generally one simply contacts one's vendor (in your case ByWater).
13:48 Romel Yes I have contacted ByWater and been corresponding with Nate. He is very nice and has provided me with a lot of information. I turned in my paper but my instructor said that I have briefly described the system!..
13:50 Romel LOL..just wanted to add to my paper more about Koha, instead of saying it is an open source... I know that this is not a general chat, but it was my only source of contact for Koha..Thanks
13:51 jcamins Romel: there's lots of information about Koha on the Koha website.
13:51 jcamins Romel: since it's open source you can install it yourself and get firsthand experience with it.
13:53 Romel okay thank you jcamins. I saw on the wiki some information that I may can use http://wiki.koha-­‐ am signing off once again thank you
13:54 jcamins ...

14:10 mveron We have a saying: Doppelt genäht hält besser
14:11 jcamins That's okay. :)
14:12 * chris_n fears yet another cut-n-paste paper
14:12 chris_n ok, sorting is a Monday job
14:13 jcamins Fair enough.
14:13 jcamins I'll attach my follow-up to the bug for now, and sign off once the sorting is fixed.
14:42 slef 6 more kohacon registrations... no time to add this to wiki right now though
14:44 jcamins slef: yay!
14:44 jcamins I got an e-mail from a Nigerian librarian asking for $800.
14:44 slef also tried a print+post service for an invitation letter... air mail is amazingly slow, like 3 weeks
