13:42 jcamins_away @later tell wizzyrea If any changes need to be made to my newsletter so that it means the website's conventions (tags, SEO, whatever), please feel free to make them without checking with me first.
13:42 huginn jcamins_away: The operation succeeded.

14:01 jcamins_away @later tell wizzyrea I think I did something wrong, because cait says it isn't on Twitter.

19:37 wizzyrea jcamins_away: did you get your issues sorted out?
19:37 jcamins_away wizzyrea: it would seem so.
19:37 wizzyrea yay cool
19:38 jcamins_away I thought you fixed it, actually.
19:38 wizzyrea I suspect that the twitter pickup doesn't happen straight away
19:38 wizzyrea i.e. it requires some interval
19:38 wizzyrea (unknown to me - I think I did not set that bit up, I think it's an external service like yahoo pipes or similar.
19:38 wizzyrea )
19:38 wizzyrea also, good <time of day>
19:38 wizzyrea :)
19:38 jcamins_away Hello.
19:39 * jcamins_away is just finishing up a delicious lunch of fried rice.
19:40 jcamins_away An inspired way to use up the leftover rice and the leftover roast beef.
19:43 user00 joined #koha
19:43 wizzyrea oh yes. fried rice is a good plan
20:19 rangi morning
20:20 jcamins_away Morning.
20:20 wahanui morning is a state of mind. or whenever the cat wants breakfast.
20:27 rangi good newsletter jcamins_away
20:29 jcamins Thanks.
20:33 user00 *wonders* do cats like fried rice?
20:34 jcamins user00: they do when there's meat in it.
20:37 user00 jcamins: have you heard of boudin? (Wikipedia suggests I should refer to it, perhaps, as Boudin blanc.)
20:37 user00 rice mixed with sausage
20:38 jcamins I have not.
20:39 user00
20:39 wizzyrea I have heard that referred to as "Dirty Rice"
20:39 wizzyrea (and mostly in the southern US)
20:39 user00 I just got back from the Lake Charles, LA area last week, and was introduced to it.
20:40 wizzyrea boudin is just the sausage apparently
20:40 wizzyrea oh well with rice it's the blanc
20:40 wizzyrea :)
20:40 user00 yep,
20:41 wizzyrea that's not precisely the thing I was thinking of
20:41 user00 Pretty good stuff, as long as you don't read the nutritional information on the package. Actually, the calorie count isn't terribly high.
20:42 wizzyrea oh hai :)
20:42 rambutan hey
20:43 jcamins Good news...
20:43 wahanui good news is it looks like it's running properly.
20:43 jcamins I think I should have enough cookbooks to keep me occupied for a while.
20:44 rangi heh
20:44 jcamins I just downloaded...
20:44 jcamins 130.
20:44 jcamins project_gutenberg++
20:47 jcamins Well, 129 so far.
20:48 jcamins I can't seem to get the 130th to download.
20:48 rangi speaking of that
20:48 rangi[…]Low_hanging_fruit
20:48 rangi i added another to the list of easy stuff
20:48 rangi[…]to_help#OMGWTFBBQ.21  and made a new category
20:49 jcamins lol
20:50 eythian hi
20:50 wahanui hi, eythian
21:03 eythian wahanui: merry christmas is <reply>[…]411136/h6CA48D60/
21:03 wahanui OK, eythian.
21:03 rangi heh
21:03 wizzyrea1 joined #koha
21:04 trea well played
21:04 jcamins lol
21:07 wizzyrea take that!
21:11 rangi i think to end 2012, we should throw on a bit of janis joplin[…]lin-try-the-bobby
21:17 eythian <-- not this?
21:17 rangi hells no
21:18 wizzyrea silly robin, two thousand THIRTEEN, not two thousand.
21:18 rangi altho that is by far the best silverchair song
21:18 eythian it's accurate within a tiny percentage.
21:18 rangi (its a low bar)
21:18 wizzyrea kekeke
21:19 eythian rangi: right on both counts.
21:20 rangi   <-- scott joplin
21:23 rangi jcamins: i have a new recipe for you
21:23 rangi[…]d&v=mbV0VhlIzzo#!
21:25 jcamins lol
21:25 wizzyrea vbmc is quite funny.
21:25 barriers joined #koha
21:26 * wizzyrea still occasionally chants "cut the tofu, turn the plate!"
21:26 rangi hehe
21:26 rangi "poke at them randomly"
21:26 rangi best cooking instruction yet
21:27 * wizzyrea decides not to make a lewd joke.
21:30 liw rangi, how strict are the randomness criteria? is a brain-generated mock-random movement pattern sufficient? :-)
21:30 rangi hehe i suspect that's fine :)
21:30 eythian you need to run it through a crypto hashbrown first.
21:31 jcamins That was awesome!
21:33 jcamins "Blackest of the black beans."
21:33 jcamins "Sesame tofu from the abyss"
21:33 rangi heh
21:34 * jcamins takes his laptop into the other room so he can watch them all while washing dishes.
21:34 eythian *consecrating the dishes
21:36 wizzyrea eythian is on a roll today.
21:36 wizzyrea highly giggleworthy.
21:37 eythian it's what happens after a break I guess :)
21:37 wizzyrea \o/
21:37 wizzyrea now I do have one quibble with this recipe
21:37 wizzyrea it is not very mexican with loads of sriracha.
21:37 wizzyrea really you ought to be going for chiles.
21:38 eythian this reminds me, I need to go spend time at the mediterranian food place down the road one day soon.
21:38 rangi[…]712128/hB4EE1988/
21:38 wizzyrea "weird wednesday"
21:38 wizzyrea lool.
21:39 wizzyrea eythian: did you know they have squid ink there?
21:39 eythian I didn't. But I have a bottle of ink in my drawer here anyway, I don't write enough to go through it fast.
21:39 wizzyrea it's for cooking ^.^
21:39 eythian I guess it would be more useful if I were writing something Lovecraftian.
21:40 wizzyrea perhaps so
21:40 wizzyrea hehehe
21:40 wizzyrea "add an axe or two of meat"
21:40 eythian that's not very vegan.
21:40 rangi it's "meat"
21:41 wizzyrea right, crumbled boca burgers.
21:41 eythian oh right
21:42 wizzyrea buffalo seitan bites.
21:42 wizzyrea ...which was so awesome it crashed flash.
21:43 jcamins The Pad Thai video is made of win.
21:43 jcamins "Chop its head off and crush it with a kniiiiiiiife."
21:43 eythian <-- wizzyrea
21:44 wizzyrea ooo
21:44 wizzyrea ty
21:46 rambutan I liOK, so you integrate this with koha: and every koha library world-wide uses it to do a scrolling display of the koha holdings of each nation.
21:46 rangi that'd be pretty sweet
21:47 rambutan We're buying some 3D printers, so I'm getting into the Maker thing.
21:49 barriers joined #koha
21:49 rangi cool
21:50 wizzyrea you'll have to be into it - someone has to teach people how to use the printers
21:53 rambutan Yep, one of the big issues. I suppose some Blender and Inkscape learning are in store for us.
21:53 rangi libaries should totally have makerspaces in them
21:54 wizzyrea oh yea, I agree
21:54 wizzyrea but getting them to sign on to this idea is harder than it sounds.
21:54 wizzyrea at least it was in kansas
21:54 wizzyrea was/is
21:54 rambutan fear and $$
21:54 wizzyrea fear. SO MUCH FEAR.
21:54 wizzyrea it might be too popular.
21:55 rangi yeah, the $$ is much more soluble
21:55 rangi mostly makers will bring their own stuff
21:55 wizzyrea someone would have to be capable to oversee the equipment
21:55 rambutan Afraid of liability and not having thousands of coins to buy equipment
21:55 rangi if you give them a safe place to store it
21:55 wizzyrea and the liability thing
21:55 rangi oh yeah i keep forgetting about that
21:55 rangi much easier here
21:55 wizzyrea make them sign a waiver.
21:55 rambutan My director, quite luckily (I think!) is very supportive of the idea.
21:56 wizzyrea ffs, I had to sign a waiver when I took spud to a indoor plaspace
21:56 wizzyrea playspace
21:56 rambutan We're not going to do woodworking with power saws and all that, but certainly the 3D printing and scanning part.
21:56 wizzyrea that said "if he dies, it's not our fault"
21:56 wizzyrea and that would be legally binding. libraries could easily do that.
21:57 wizzyrea as long as the library isn't negligent.
21:57 rambutan yea, we're already planning on doing waivers for things like our e- lab. (A very modest e- lab certainly).
21:58 rambutan I'd like to offer a few simple classes on the Pi and Arduino, and see how much interest there is around here.
21:58 wizzyrea I just think it's a red herring, liability.
21:58 jcamins rangi: I had a thought: is there any reason the Debian scripts couldn't be general?
21:58 rambutan Agree, we're really got to get past it.
21:58 wizzyrea afk just a min
21:58 rangi the koha-create etc?
21:59 jcamins Yeah.
21:59 rangi only that the files dont exist in the right places on a non package install
21:59 jcamins I mean, obviously that would require changes to Makefile.PL and some file organization.
21:59 rangi yep
21:59 barriers joined #koha
22:00 eythian jcamins: general how?
22:00 jcamins But the only reason it can't be done is that none of us have the free time.
22:00 rangi 92 year old starts a blog
22:00 jcamins eythian: so that instead of using Makefile.PL you run koha-create mykoha.
22:00 rangi http://greycavalier.wordpress.[…]4/intotheunknown/
22:00 rangi this is what the internet is for
22:01 eythian <-- no, rangi
22:01 rangi heh
22:01 jcamins eythian: I'm thinking if we eliminated the divide between the templates for packages and for tarballs that would be nice.
22:02 jcamins I'm also thinking I'm not doing the work, so that was all just speculative, and now that I've finished speculating, I guess I'd better go wash some more dishes.
22:02 eythian jcamins: hmm. Though running the Makefile.PL and koha-create are quite different things in terms of how they do things. But I do like the idea of sharing templates.
22:02 eythian heh OK
22:03 eythian (of course, them being quite different I guess is why it'd require significant work)
22:03 jcamins Yeah, Makefile.PL mixes up the "Koha installation" and "Koha instance configuration" steps.
22:05 eythian phew, over-christmas-email-pile: cleared!
22:05 wizzyrea if the internet had been around when my grandma was in her early 90's I bet she would have started a blog
22:05 wizzyrea well, if the blogging software had been as good then as it is now
22:06 wizzyrea she would have been 90 about 13 years ago
22:06 wizzyrea (she's still alive)
22:06 wizzyrea the reason I say that is that when she was in her 80's, she was using a computer to write her history
22:07 wizzyrea she probably can't see well enough now to do it :(
22:10 jcamins Myshkin suggests that one does not need to see the computer in order to type.
22:10 wizzyrea myshkin should start a blog.
22:10 rangi i'm concerned
22:11 jcamins He also says that reading is unnecessary.
22:11 jcamins And, "hi."
22:13 rangi concerned
22:13 wahanui[…]136512/h0FB4BFFA/
22:13 wizzyrea that baby is concerned his mom will buy some bras.
22:13 jcamins lol

22:32 wizzyrea jcamins:[…]re=endscreen&NR=1
22:35 jcamins Aww.
22:36 jcamins Hehe.
22:36 jcamins I like the cat closing the door.
22:37 wizzyrea I like the slowly rising cat.
22:37 wizzyrea and the cat who can't help himself from jumping in the barrel.
22:38 jcamins Yeah, I was wondering if there was a cat toy out of sight of the camera.
22:39 wizzyrea or the water was catnip tea
22:39 jcamins lol
