00:25 bag dcook: how's friday going for you?  I'm really looking forward to some friday
00:25 dcook hehe
00:25 dcook It's not too bad, bag
00:26 dcook Listening to Active Child and doing DSpace config. Looking forward to beers tonight :)
00:26 dcook Just finishing up your Thursday of work?
00:27 bag I'm in late night tonight
00:28 bag but having a fat tire
00:28 bag[…]ac9a-316256a7b0ee
00:29 bag rangi ^^ that's a good one
00:29 bag have you had that?
00:30 bag eythian you should try that one too
00:30 dcook Looks pretty tasty. Nice website too
00:30 dcook Amazing how many engineers go into beer and cheese...\
00:30 rangi hmm
00:30 rangi lemme look
00:31 bag so it's crazy in the US…  the shitty beers make up like 95% of the market
00:31 bag good beer is 5%
00:31 rangi yeah but there are tons of good ones
00:31 bag and I think this one newbelgium  - is one of the medium sized good ones
00:31 rangi
00:31 bag yeah I'm just so depressed with the 95% shitty
00:31 bag :(
00:32 bag yeah rangi I'm on untapped
00:32 rangi ahh fat tire
00:32 bag but I usually only log my homebrew
00:32 rangi yeah they make good stuff
00:32 dcook I was going to ask you about beer availability in the US, bag
00:32 bag dcook: you can get budweiser anywhere they sell water :P
00:32 bag heh
00:32 dcook Seems like there are a lot of options, although being from Canada...we do tend to insult your beer availability pretty regularly
00:33 dcook Not that ours is that great either :p
00:33 bag but now adays you can get really good beer everywhere
00:33 rangi vancouver had good beer
00:33 * dcook misses Vancouver beer
00:33 eythian you should get the bud light clamato, because that sounds terrible
00:33 * dcook shutters
00:33 bag yeah dcook there has been a really big movement in the last 5~10 years to improve that
00:33 dcook Bud light is really gaining purchase in Canada, I think
00:33 dcook It's depressing
00:33 dcook Mmm, that makes sense
00:34 bag if you go to a good grocery store you can get a really wide selection (lots of locals) and then some of the bigger good beer nation wide brews
00:34 dcook My brother in law in Florida is a beer fiend
00:34 rangi  <-- if you ever see any of these, dead canary is my current fave pale ale
00:34 dcook rangi: Did you head out to Parallel 49 in Vancouver?
00:34 bag there is a little spot in humbolt CA that has an amazing pale ale
00:34 dcook I never made it over there, but I heard really good things from local Vanc brewers
00:35 bag
00:35 eythian I don't think ParrotDog are exporting yet.
00:35 bag anything that is Rogue is top notch
00:36 eythian oh, they are exporting to Australia
00:36 bag if you like IPA's - try any of the dogfishheads
00:36 rangi dcook: hmmm not sure, we went to a few places
00:36 bag this brewery has gotten big - but they make some of the best IPA's
00:36 bag
00:36 rangi i was torn between beer pubs, and pubs that were showing the rugby world cup
00:37 bag rugby won out?
00:37 rangi it was the finals
00:37 rangi so yep
00:37 wizzyrea1 joined #koha
00:37 rangi but i did get to a couple of brew pubs
00:37 dcook :D
00:38 bag one of my friends from college is starting a brew pub
00:38 bag
00:38 bag there amber is really great…
00:38 bag the IPA is good
00:38 bag they do BIG beers though
00:39 bag like 8% and up
00:39 dcook mmm
00:39 dcook As a student, I loved those kinds of beers ;)
00:39 dcook I like this mug club idea..
00:39 rangi hmm i kickstarted someone starting a brew pub thing
00:40 bag hmm…  well maybe I'm think of their speciality beers and not their regulars
00:40 rangi maybe it was them
00:40 bag rangi that was them
00:40 bag it was!
00:40 bag yeah I sent you that link
00:40 eythian rangi: you can get koha coffee mugs, why not beer glasses?
00:40 rangi[…]create-a-place-to
00:40 rangi you can
00:40 eythian oh, good
00:40 bag yup rangi that's my buddy from college
00:40 rangi
00:40 jcamins I've been watching a documentary on microbrewries.
00:41 rangi slap a logo on that :)
00:41 rangi koha hip flask
00:41 bag jcamins: which one?  netflix or something like that?
00:41 wizzyrea1 oh we all need a flask
00:41 bag jared I've been working my way through the brewery documentaries in netflix
00:43 eythian[…]ref=home_location <-- oh hey, a wellington thing. that's rare
00:43 ibeardslee oh yeah hip flash .. perfect for the under the monitor stand
00:44 jcamins bag: Brew Wars on Netflix.
00:46 dcook Hmm, this call for presentation form is...particular
00:46 bag for kohacon?
00:46 dcook We just whipped together an idea. No idea about any of the specifics yet
00:46 dcook bag: mhm
00:46 bag yeah that's google forms for you
00:47 dcook I was thinking about putting something together and after hearing there were only 7-8 so far...I figured it might be an idea to put together something
00:47 bag ah yes I think I saw that one jcamins
00:48 bag yeah we need a few more…
00:49 dcook We're thinking of doing a talk on integrating Koha and DSpace
00:49 bag cool
00:50 dcook I imagine it must be done fairly often, but I guess that could lead to discussion?
00:51 bag discussion is good
00:58 dcook Still working on transfers tonight, bag?
00:59 bag nah you've just motivated me to think about a presentation
01:00 dcook :D
01:30 dcook Yay, proposal all done
01:31 dcook Are folks starting to book hotels and buy plane tickets?
01:31 rangi yup
01:32 dcook Sweet. I really need to plan my holiday and then jump on that.
01:32 dcook I'm still trying to convince the UBC library school folks to come down
01:32 dcook I think there is a bit of reluctance though because Evergreen has such a strong presence in British Columbia
01:33 dcook Although I figure a lot of what you could learn at KohaCon could be transferred to work on Evergreen as well
01:34 rangi yup
01:36 dcook Uh oh, he's stuck on repeat
01:38 rangi hm?
01:39 dcook I'm trying to tease you!
01:39 rangi you arent very good at it :-)
01:40 rangi oh hey
01:40 rangi if you fly from oz, virgin australia are pretty decent
01:40 dcook That's what I keep hearing from Aussies who live in North America
01:41 rangi if you book early ahead you can get some pretty good prices
01:41 dcook Yeah, that's what the boss was saying last week
01:41 rangi and they have good seat back entertainment
01:41 rangi as well as usb
01:41 dcook I've seen the usb on Air Canada flights, but never known was it is for
01:41 dcook How does that work?
01:41 rangi i charge my phone/tablet with it
01:42 rangi but you can plug in a usb stick, or phone and play your music through their entertainment system
01:42 rangi on a 13 hour flight
01:42 dcook Neato. I'll have to give that a whirl
01:42 dcook Hehe
01:42 rangi it makes angry birds not kill your phone
01:42 rangi :)
01:42 dcook It's horrible going from Aus to North America too
01:42 dcook lol
01:42 dcook Good point
01:43 dcook With the time change, Vancouver to Sydney is a breeze
01:43 dcook I just sleep for most of it
01:43 rangi yeah
01:43 dcook But going the other way around...
01:43 rangi *nod*
01:43 rangi im planning to get to reno at least a day before
01:43 dcook Yeah, that's what I was thinking too
01:43 rangi otherwise ill just sleep through the first day
01:43 rangi that way if they lose my luggage
01:44 rangi i might have it by time i need to present
01:44 rangi not like last kohacon :)
01:44 dcook Ouch
01:44 dcook Yeah, definitely getting in a day early to recover from flight hangover
01:45 bshum joined #koha
01:45 dcook Although last time I went back to Canada, was the first and only time I've ever experienced jetlag
01:45 dcook So maybe it was more emotional than physical...
01:45 dcook I also spent a lot of that 13 hours watching really bad...awful...horrible Hollywood movies they were playing on the mainscreen
01:45 * wizzyrea had terrible jetlag coming back from kohacon in NZ
01:45 rangi i just cant sleep
01:45 wizzyrea going back I guess.
01:45 rangi im too tall
01:46 rangi so if i land at say 1pm
01:46 dcook How tall are you?
01:46 * dcook can't remember
01:46 wizzyrea spud was up the whole way home
01:46 rangi only 6'2"
01:46 wizzyrea it was terrible
01:46 dcook Mmm, I'm the same
01:46 dcook Doesn't make for the most comfortable rides
01:46 rangi trying to stay awake until say 9pm
01:46 rangi after being awake for 13 hours already is hard
01:46 rangi and then i wake up at like 5am
01:46 rangi bleargh
01:47 dcook wizzyrea: :(
01:47 dcook Ugh indeed
01:47 bag yeah all of us will be there the day before
01:47 bag we're having a staff retreat the day before
01:47 rangi good plan
01:47 * dcook thumbs up
01:49 jcamins Hm. Apparently you can't specify ::after pseudo-element styles inline.
01:51 dcook Makes sense, me thinks
01:51 dcook Mostly after a quick Google of it :p
01:52 jcamins Yep.
01:52 dcook I may have ranted a bit (in a good way) about your cataloguing project last night :p
01:52 jcamins :)
01:52 jcamins I came up with a better tag selection interface conept.
01:52 jcamins Now I just have to impelemnt it.
01:53 dcook :D
01:53 dcook I'll try to break it after you do ;)
01:53 jcamins :)
01:54 jcamins Sadly, the implementation is much more difficult than the original.
01:55 dcook Hmm, I'll take that as a good sign though
01:57 jcamins And now I can't figure out how to increase the size of an element.
01:58 dcook What kind of element?
01:59 jcamins A span.
01:59 jcamins The problem is it needed to be an inline-block element.
02:01 jcamins Now... how do I force it to have height?
02:03 dcook Is it empty or does it have text?
02:03 dcook I assume empty
02:03 jcamins Empty.
02:03 dcook I don't know if you can force empty spans and divs to have heights :S
02:03 jcamins You can, you just can't force them to be the height they would be if they had stuff.
02:04 dcook[…]h-and-height.html
02:04 dcook ?
02:05 * dcook goes back to trying to figure out DSpace's undocumented searching tricks
02:05 jcamins Hrm. That doesn't quite work.
02:06 jcamins Well, I'll make it 20px for now, and worry about it later.
02:08 dcook Mmm, turns out that 2008-2010 doesn't return a date only returns items from 2008 AND 2010
02:08 dcook Grrr
02:08 jcamins In Koha?
02:09 dcook DSpace
02:10 wizzyrea oh phew.
02:10 tcohen joined #koha
02:10 wizzyrea it turns out tahat while drinking jasmine tea is lovely, it's really the *smell* of it I like.
02:10 dcook Sorry for any heart attacks caused there
02:10 wizzyrea hi tcohen
02:10 tcohen hi wizzyrea
02:10 dcook It is a pretty great smell
02:10 dcook Lots of jasmine bushes by my house
02:11 * wizzyrea really wants a jasmine bush by her bedroom window
02:11 tcohen sencha with jasmine
02:11 dcook (or at least I'm told that's the case and that is in fact what I was smelling :P)
02:11 wizzyrea I suppose that could be arranged easily enough.
02:11 wizzyrea but they're kind of plants that grow out of control
02:11 dcook There is a scent I smelled in Spain that makes my brain do wonderful things, but I have no idea what the plant is :S
02:11 wizzyrea honeysuckle
02:11 tcohen there are several jasmine types
02:12 cjh mmmhhmm sencha and jasmine would be lovely.
02:15 eythian dcook: sounds like the marajuana plany
02:15 eythian plant
02:15 dcook :p
02:15 dcook I think it was some sort of bush, and I think I typically smelled it at night
02:16 wizzyrea probably a type of jasmine then.
02:16 dcook I was staying in this little town outside of Malaga, and when I was walking the streets at good
02:16 dcook Intriguing
02:16 dcook It's different from tthe jasmine I smell here for sure
02:16 tcohen madreselva
02:16 wizzyrea oh thank heavens above daylight savings time this weekend.
02:17 wizzyrea ends*
02:17 wizzyrea that getting up before dawn thing is for the fracking birds.
02:17 bag so that means you're only 19 hours ahead of us?
02:17 dcook madreselva = honeysuckle?
02:17 eythian It means that morning people have more morning time, but normal people have really early evenings :/
02:17 tcohen yes dcook
02:18 bag eythian: you're a night person?
02:18 tcohen didn't realize actually
02:18 wizzyrea i prefer dark at night more than in the morning :P
02:18 eythian bag: I'm a normal person, yes :)
02:18 cjh wizzyrea: thanks for the reminder :p
02:18 bag HA
02:18 bag I'm a morning person and a night person - the middle of the day - not so much
02:18 dcook Awesome. Thanks, tcohen and wizzyrea.
02:18 dcook bag++
02:18 * wizzyrea giggles at eythian
02:18 dcook Actually, I think I'm an all day person
02:19 wizzyrea I like the time of day when I'm getting things done.
02:19 dcook If I could have some sort of quantum sleep schedule, that would be great
02:19 wizzyrea ^
02:19 dcook I love waking up at 5am...but also love going to bed at 5am...doesn't work well
02:19 wizzyrea I want shrodingers sleep schedule - to be both awake and asleep at the same time
02:19 bag I can do a 3 months of not getting much sleep like 5~6 hours a night - but then the following month I sleep like 10~12 hours a night
02:19 wizzyrea we call that "having kids"
02:19 dcook hehe
02:20 dcook I laugh now...
02:20 wizzyrea except it's more like 3-5 months of sleeping 5-6 hours a day total, and then the rest of your life wishing for the days you could sleep 10-12
02:20 tcohen almost the same wizzyrea
02:20 jcamins Blech. Bootstrap typeahead doesn't work with contenteditable.
02:21 bag wizzyrea++
02:22 wizzyrea actually, don't hit me... spud will usually if left un-tampered-with sleep until 9:30ish
02:22 wizzyrea am
02:22 wizzyrea and go to bed at 8:30ish pm
02:22 wizzyrea so I could technically get 12 hours if I realllly wanted it
02:23 wizzyrea but I've got STUFF TO DO ;)
02:24 dcook lol
02:24 bag Ginny 3.14  goes to sleep at 7:30 and wakes up around 6:30…  but she also wakes up at 10pm, 2am and 4:30 like where the hell is my mama
02:24 cjh wizzyrea: those are your productive hours
02:24 dcook bag: I hear it's a good thing if children wake up throughout the night though in terms of parent bonding
02:24 * wizzyrea remembers those days
02:25 wizzyrea if you don't get to them quickly they'll be eaten by dingoes!
02:25 dcook I was always praised for sleeping through the night as an infant, but apparently that's because I learned to "self-soothe"
02:25 dcook Which cognitively speaking is actually harmful O_o
02:25 wizzyrea meaning, your parent's didn't come running.
02:25 wizzyrea lol.
02:25 dcook I think they're deep sleepers too :p
02:25 bag Ginny sleeps in bed with us
02:25 * wizzyrea is an 'err on the side of being closer' type
02:25 dcook Apparently it's not a good thing to leave your baby crying though
02:26 dcook In the sense of letting themselves work it out
02:26 bag she actually sleeps with her arms wrapped around my arm…
02:26 wizzyrea there's studies showing both ways. I say, whichever way is easier on ya, do it that way.
02:26 dcook bag: Aww X infinity
02:26 wizzyrea d'awwwww
02:26 tcohen jcamins: is it a blocker?
02:26 wizzyrea spud would still prefer to sleep with us but he's too big now.
02:27 bag yup so usally Ginny and I have to find Sonja who's left the bed in the middle of the night cause she can't sleep with Ginny in bed - but Ginny and I can
02:27 bag heh
02:27 bag poor sonja
02:27 wizzyrea aw
02:27 dcook :(
02:27 wizzyrea now that is irony.
02:27 bag yup :(
02:27 * dcook thinks sleeping with the cats is good preparation
02:27 dcook Except Starbuck steals the blankets in the winter...
02:27 bag but we don't have a second bedroom
02:28 bag and the qt3.14 will not sleep in her crib
02:28 dcook :/
02:28 wizzyrea spud wouldn't either. he didn't until the crib wasn't a cage.
02:28 wizzyrea then he slept in his bed fine, the crazy kid.
02:28 bag yeah that is weird they are like cages aren't they
02:28 wizzyrea you might try the montessori type bed
02:29 wizzyrea basically a pad on the floor
02:29 jcamins tcohen: is what a blocker?
02:29 bag yeah we are thinking a pad on the floor is coming soon
02:29 wizzyrea so no falling out of bed.
02:29 tcohen the problem with bootstrap's typeahead you mentioned
02:29 jcamins No, it has nothing to do with Koha.
02:29 wizzyrea oh... no that was for something else he was working on
02:29 bag ack gotta run
02:29 bag later all
02:29 bag be well
02:29 wizzyrea byee
02:30 tcohen bye bag

09:13 kf but it never got fully implemented
09:14 vfernandes ok thanks kf
09:16 vfernandes maybe i will need to develop this feature soon, and then submit to the community
09:16 vfernandes :)
09:16 drojf joined #koha
09:17 kf :)
09:17 kf vfernandes: it would be nice if there was a way that uses can subscribe t it
09:17 kf sending them mail without their confirmation could be a problem here
09:18 vfernandes yes, for newsletters... but for example if the library wants to send a email to all patrons with the new library schedule
09:18 vfernandes there is no need of confirmation
09:19 vfernandes but that's all I need to know... if the feature doesn't exist, development is needed :)
09:19 kf i think so :)
09:20 kf maybe some artefacts in the code - it was called library events I think
09:20 kf I remember it showing up in the translations
09:21 vfernandes kf one more question: imagine that you have a record with 3 documents. It's possible when you borrow one of them to block the others (not possible to borrow)?
09:22 kf hm I don't think so
09:22 kf I know there is a new pref that won't allow to place another hold on the record
09:22 kf the problem is multivolume things
09:22 kf or serials
09:22 kf long term probably would need to be itemlevel
09:24 kf or would nice if it was
09:24 kf on itemtype level
09:24 kf fridays...
09:24 vfernandes this is what I need: 1 record with a CD, a book and one magazine... when the user tries to borrow something of this record, he will take all 3 items
09:25 kf oh
09:25 kf that's different to what I thought
09:25 kf I was thinking only allow borrowing one item at the same time
09:25 kf for multi copy things
09:27 vfernandes so what I want it's possible?
09:40 lediephuha joined #koha
09:40 kf vfernandes: not automatically no
09:40 kf vfernandes: you could use 1 item instead and the materials note
09:44 kf it makes a note pop up on checkout and check in
09:44 kf not really what you wanted, but maybe still helpful
09:47 drojf vfernandes: you can use analytic records for that. i think easyanalytics would have one and the same item that is shown with each of the records that are part of the set. there are other ways to do it too. you might want to watch the video of jcamins' kohacon talk from last year
09:48 * kf hands over staff client translation to drojf
09:48 kf
09:49 drojf nice try kf, unfortunately i have other things to do
09:49 kf drojf: also an option - but then you have to have a separate record for each and no check that all is given back or only one component is
09:50 drojf if you want to have a full record for a book, a cd and a something (that is how i understood it) it is an option, but yes, it is more complicated and more work
09:50 kf more confusing to the patron :)
09:51 drojf anyway, in case it is of interest[…]ticRecordsAndKoha
09:52 vfernandes thanks kf and drojf
10:38 kf @later tell wizzyrea a library noticed that the versions on the demo site are outdated - for example bywater is master not 3.8 - can I help updating them?

13:42 kf some time before 3.2
13:49 oleonard It looks like a complete rewrite of the template to me, but I'm guessing based on 3.x
13:49 kf hm the result list reminded me of 3.2
13:49 kf but there are also somet things that look newer
13:52 tcohen did 3.2 use tables for search results?
13:52 kf I think we still do, but not like that

14:20 vfernandes hello
14:21 vfernandes there wasn't a topic in koha wiki to upgrade from 2.2.8 to 3.X?
14:22 oleonard ?
14:22 oleonard I don't know if that is the right one vfernandes
14:22 vfernandes that's it :)
14:23 vfernandes new client with old 2.2.8
14:26 * oleonard cheers any upgrade from 2.x!
14:27 vfernandes let's hope that everything went right :)
14:27 oleonard paul_p: I wonder if we could agree on a list of features any one of which could trigger a version number increase?
14:30 paul_p oleonard not sure.
14:31 oleonard paul_p: I think it's a worthwhile discussion. We really have no plan for making it past 3.x.x
14:32 paul_p vfernandes I confirm the wiki page for upgrading from 2.2 I used it "recently" (something like less than a year ago) to upgrade a very old Koha !
14:32 paul_p oleonard I agree it's a worthwhile discussion. And an easy option would be to remove the "3." ;-)
14:33 vfernandes thanks oleonard and paul_p... next week will check that :)
14:33 paul_p a major version every 6 months = a major number every 6 months. Easy to understand for everybody !
14:34 oleonard However, I think libraries need a good understanding of how much one version differs from the next when planning whether or not to upgrade.
14:34 kf I have to say I like our way of doing it
14:34 oleonard I'm thinking in particular of independent Koha libraries for whom upgrades are more difficult and time consuming.
14:35 kf and having the possibility to announce a big change with a 4 :)
14:36 tcohen i belive we haven't clearly established the life cycle of a release, and are encouraging people to use packages in a way it may cause trouble because of major version upgrades
14:38 kf tcohen: hm not sure how it would create trouble?
14:39 magnuse i seem to remember we said once that Solr and Plack (persistence) could be triggers for 4 and 5?
14:39 kf yep
14:40 kf a newly written module would qualify too I guess
14:44 oleonard Time travel for instance.
14:45 tcohen we currently support 3 releases simultaneously, right?
14:46 tcohen and users need to keep in mind they need to change oldstable, squeeze or squeeze-dev accordingly
14:47 tcohen i just mean i'd like to have something like koha-common3.8 and koha-common3.10
14:47 tcohen which is not related to the discussion
14:47 tcohen heh
14:48 jcamins kf: I think that's a 3.x.
14:49 kf :)
14:49 kf hey jcamins
14:49 jcamins What version I do not know, but 3.x.
14:49 Anathemizatu joined #koha
14:50 Anathemizatu Hi, everybody!
14:51 Anathemizatu Is there someone that uses Koha with Unimarc indexing for Zebra? After update from 3.8 to the new stable version, I can't get the authority search to work
14:52 jcamins Anathemizatu: how did you install? You have to rerun the entire installation process.
14:52 jcamins And, for the record, I can't get UNIMARC to work past 3.8 either.
14:52 Anathemizatu I've installed from Debian packages
14:53 kf jcamins: ouch. is there abug?
14:53 kf jcamins: I had it working in my test installation I think, from git
14:53 jcamins kf: no, because none of the UNIMARC users have reported the problem, so I just rely on them to have actually tested the UNIMARC searching patches that I push.
14:54 jcamins Anathemizatu: I suspect it requires hand editing the configuration files.
14:54 kf jcamins: you can rely that what I qa'd for unimarc was basedon that unimarc installation I have
14:54 kf and tested there
14:55 jcamins Fortunately there haven't been many Zebra-specific UNIMARC patches.
14:56 Anathemizatu I've done a lot of experiments with it :) From the beggining I thought that it was a problem tied to bug 9256
14:56 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=9256 critical, P5 - low, ---, magnus, RESOLVED FIXED, Search is broken for 3.10 package-installs when marcflavour != marc21
14:56 jcamins Yes, it has to do with the "fix" that required that fix.
14:57 * magnuse has not tested authorities in relation to 9256
14:57 drnoe joined #koha

14:58 kf have a nice weekend everyone
14:59 mtompset You too, kf.
14:59 magnuse have fun kf
14:59 Anathemizatu From a SQL dump that I created before upgrading I've created a new instance, loaded the dump, upgraded the schema (which is like from 3.8.4 to 3.8.11). And when I try to do a zebra rebuild I get the error "16:46:46-05/04 zebraidx(1528) [warn] Couldn't open collection.abs [No such file or directory]"
14:59 kf left #koha
14:59 Anathemizatu After that - 16:47:42-05/04 zebraidx(1528) [warn] Record didn't contain match fields in (bib1,Local-Number)
14:59 magnuse collection.abs? never heard of that...
15:01 Anathemizatu Me neither :) Couldn't find the file anywhere on the server (at first I thought it was a faulty symlink or something)
15:01 jcamins Oooh.
15:01 jcamins I actually know what that error means.
15:01 magnuse jcamins++
15:02 jcamins It's because you're using -x for reindexing, and somewhere there's a misconfiguration so that the GRS-1 indexer isn't parsing the records.
15:02 jcamins Unfortunately, I don't know what the solution is.
15:03 drnoe left #koha
15:03 Anathemizatu Yep :) I've forgotten to say that I've cahnged the configuration files in koha-conf.xml from DOM to GRS1 because I found that DOM indexing for Unimarc wasn't working
15:04 jcamins Oh, I bet I know what the problem is.
15:04 Anathemizatu I was doing it basing on this[…]March/032205.html
15:04 jcamins You have to change DOM to GRS-1 in three places (I don't remember which three). Could you have missed one?
15:05 jcamins Yes, that's only two of the places.
15:05 jcamins You also have to set <authority_indexing_thing> (I don't remember what it's called exactly) to grs1 in koha-conf.xml.
15:06 tcohen tha <config> entry for authorityserver maybe?
15:07 jcamins There are two lines... you'll spot them.
15:07 jcamins Near the end.
15:07 tcohen and the line that contains retrieval-info-auth-something
15:07 jcamins Right, those are the first two.
15:07 jcamins Maybe authority_index_mode?
15:08 tcohen oh
15:08 Anathemizatu I coudn't find any other references to DOM
15:08 tcohen jcamins, are zebra_auth_index_mode and zebra_bib_index_mode enough?
15:08 jcamins That's it.
15:08 jcamins zebra_auth_index_mode.

15:22 mtompset The big problem is I'm still fiscally short.
15:23 mtompset My hope is to raise more financial partners, so that I can continue.
15:25 mtompset I succeeded at getting SimpleSAMLPHP set up from source AND packages to authenticate against an LDAP source.
15:26 mtompset Now the next big logical step: integrate that SAML 2.0 authentication with Koha somehow. Didn't someone mention BibLibre and shibboleth before?

15:28 wahanui you are probably disliking the silent warnings flooding his error logs.
15:28 jcamins He's pulled out the "I want you to support each version of Koha for three years for free" card.
15:29 tcohen heh, it was the other paul
15:29 jcamins Yup.
15:29 tcohen is he around on IRC?
15:29 jcamins No.
15:29 mtompset support each version of Koha for 3 years?! Are you crazy? Libraries and dependencies and OS's change too fast to do that.
15:29 tcohen so i can say "the bad paul"
15:29 jcamins Yes.
15:30 mtompset The one that makes my country look bad. :P
15:30 jcamins You know, 3.12 is a lot nicer than 3.10.
15:30 jcamins And I'm not saying that just because I am RM.
15:30 tcohen LTS would be great, but people paying that maintenance work is needed
15:30 jcamins So many little improvements that just make life better.
15:31 paul_p just for the record : we've decided to upgrade all our customers with a 100% community version once every year. Previously, we waited for a request (and we have a few libraries still using 3.0.x, a VLTS version ;-) )
15:32 mtompset Ooo... is VLTS the company that shall not be named?
15:32 jcamins No, Very Long Term Support.
15:32 tcohen we are starting the testing stage for 3.8 > 3.12
15:32 jcamins You're thinking of VTLS, Virginia Tech Library Systems.

15:45 jcamins chris_n: I would have a different record for each thesis, and use easy analytics to attach them to the same item.
15:46 jcamins (different bib record)
15:47 tcohen jcamins, the email is fine, he won't do it of course
15:47 jcamins Of course.
15:49 jcamins I really want to sign my name "Jared Camins-Esakov, Release Manager for 3.12 and former Release Maintainer for 3.6," but I'm resisting the urge.
15:49 jcamins Barely.
15:51 tcohen jcamins, a fresh 3.11.x install from squeeze-dev, isnt installing /etc/mysql/koha-common.conf
15:51 jcamins tcohen: did you forget to install MySQL? :P
15:51 tcohen do I need it if am using --request-db ?
15:52 jcamins No, but /etc/mysql/koha-common.conf can only be automatically generated if you're using a local database.
15:52 jcamins Otherwise you need to write it yourself.
15:53 tcohen so making packages use an external mysql is a pain
15:54 jcamins Not that bad.
15:54 jcamins You just need to point it at the external database.
15:55 tcohen but it needs to have root access to the external db, right?
15:55 jcamins No.
15:56 tcohen my scenario is a DBA has created 38 mysql dbs in a mysql replicated big server
15:56 jcamins It needs to have administrative access if it is going to create the database, of course.
15:56 tcohen i need to batch create all instances, pointing them to the newly created ones, which will be filled with our 3.8.x dumps
15:57 tcohen so i can make librarians test 3.12 and redo the upgrade each time
15:57 jcamins Right. You can use /etc/mysql/koha-common.conf to point to the external server, and /etc/koha/passwd to set the user/password.
16:00 tcohen by koha-common.conf you mean editing the [client] section?
16:00 jcamins Yeah, I think that's what it uses.
16:00 jcamins koha-common.cnf, rather
16:01 jcamins Yup. [client]
16:01 tcohen work on error handling will be needed for packages
16:02 Anathemizatu Thank you, jcamins, for your advice. I've added "<zebra_auth_index_mode>grs​1</zebra_auth_index_mode>" to the koha-conf.xml, as is written here[…]g_to_dom_indexing. But now I'm getting the error "Can't call method "data" on an undefined value at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/ line 335."
16:02 jcamins Hm.
16:02 jcamins Anathemizatu: unfortunately, I'm out of ideas.
16:02 jcamins As I said, as far as I'm concerned, bug 3087 broke all non-MARC21 installas irretrievably.
16:02 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3087 enhancement, P3, ---, frederic, Pushed to Master , Z39.50 server returns usmarc format records for UNIMARC DB
16:03 jcamins *installs
16:05 Anathemizatu I've already done a sed -i 's/usmarc/unimarc/g' koha-conf.xml . Didn't help. Or should I rebuild zebra after that?
16:05 tcohen restart zebra after that
16:06 jcamins You'll have to restart and rebuild zebra after every single thing you try.
16:06 * mtompset grumbles about the fragility of zebra in this regard.
16:06 jcamins mtompset: actually, the problem isn't Zebra.
16:07 jcamins The problem is that we took poorly-written configuration files and made them much worse.
16:10 mtompset Okay, that may be true. But the zebra implementation used in Koha is fragile, because of it.
16:11 jcamins Yes.

16:55 jcamins Curried coconut oatmeal chocolate chip is current forerunner.
16:55 chris_n I'll find it hard to disagree with whatever you choose
16:55 chris_n however...
16:56 chris_n you should be required to submit a sample batch for testing first
16:56 jcamins lol
16:56 cait and qa!!
16:56 chris_n hehe
16:56 cait which has to be done by the qam in that special case of course
16:56 jcamins lol
16:57 cait :)
16:59 cait jcamins: shouldn#t the coookie start with a?
16:59 jcamins cait: why?
16:59 cait well... curried... we could name 3.8 and 3.10 too
17:00 cait because alphabetic naming would be very... libarian-ish?
17:00 jcamins Hehe.
17:00 jcamins I was thinking C because the RM's last name starts with a C.
17:00 jcamins :P
17:01 cait lol
17:01 cait so if I ever get to be rm it has to start with fish....
17:01 cait ?
17:01 cait hopefully not :)
17:02 jcamins No, just an F.
17:02 cait i was trying to make a joke about fish  and cookies...
17:02 cait it's friday, be nice
17:02 jcamins :)

17:54 jcamins Hehe.
17:55 cait again?
17:55 cait you got sun?
17:55 cait not fair.
17:55 cait ;)
17:55 magnuse yeah, lots and lots of sun today
17:56 cait we got none
17:56 cait only grey ligth
17:56 * magnuse commiserates
17:56 druthb sunshine here.  and…uhm.  warm.
17:56 cait but you got the baby... the baby needs sun :)
17:56 druthb @wunder 77098

18:18 nengard I tested on two different datasets
18:18 cait never used with rollup
18:19 nengard it puts a total at the end
18:19 cait what are you trying to do?
18:19 nengard it's awesome
18:19 cait ah
18:19 nengard seen here:[…]ibrary#Checkouts_.26_Renewal_Counts_by_Call_Number
18:19 wahanui I haven't seen 'here:', nengard
18:19 nengard and a few other reports
18:19 jcamins nengard: do you have more than one item type that should be showing up?
18:19 nengard not on that one but on another data set it picked the last item type
18:19 jcamins Hm.
18:19 jcamins In that case I don't know why it's doing it.
18:20 pastebot "nengard" at pasted "jcamins" (12 lines) at
18:20 nengard see
18:20 cait and it works without the with rollup?
18:20 nengard well it's working with the 'with rollup'
18:20 nengard it's putting a total in there
18:20 nengard just the label is usually NULL
18:20 tcohen rangi
18:20 rangi morning
18:21 rangi tcohen: pretty much yes
18:21 cait morning rangi

18:33 jcamins t
18:33 jcamins Woohoo! I have ops!
18:33 jcamins :P
18:33 rangi gmcharlt++
18:34 cait hehe
18:34 rangi what i was attempting to say, but did so badly
18:34 druthb gmcharlt++
18:34 cait hehe yes
18:34 cait gmcharlt++
18:34 jcamins I was attempting to say now is a silly time to discuss it because the next version is going to be 3.12 no matter what decision is or isn't reached.
18:35 * cait agrees to stick to that and not discuss it
18:35 chris_n joined #koha
18:35 cait we discussed it over and over
18:35 cait I think changing it would be more confusing than anything else
18:35 gmcharlt jcamins: yeah, I think paul_p was talking about, not 3.12
18:35 drojf pff. we need a relese versioning manager and a team for it. and release name quality assurance. and release name testers. and signoffers. and release name translators
18:35 * druthb blames paul_p.
18:36 * druthb pokes drojf with a pointy stick
18:36 * gmcharlt is fully prepared to call the next release "Bikeshed"
18:36 gmcharlt jes' sayin' :)
18:36 jcamins gmcharlt: that was kind of unclear from the thread, and I wanted to make it explicit, just in case people were getting involved because they thought that they could have a nice marketing point on May 23.
18:37 drojf bikeshed chocolate chip cookie and i'm in
18:37 drojf :D
18:37 gmcharlt drojf++
18:37 rangi heh
18:38 cait I still think the cookie should start with a
18:38 rangi afghan cookie?
18:39 cait that's a thing?
18:39 rangi[…]fghanBiscuits.htm
18:39 drojf black afghan cookie is a thing :D
18:39 rangi it is
18:39 rangi all nz kids learn how to make them
18:39 rangi they are super easy to make
18:39 jcamins Maybe I should try them.
18:40 cait they have chocolate
18:40 cait and nuts
18:40 cait ... they look like they could be considered
18:40 rangi and cornflakes :)
18:40 jcamins Of course, it requires two types of sugar and one type of cereal that I don't keep in the house.
18:41 rangi the icing sugar is just for the icing, and you can just use regular sugar not castor
18:41 rangi you just have to cream it a bit more
18:42 * cait suggests rangi submits a couple of those to the qam for qa...
18:42 rangi heh
18:42 rangi oh hey
18:43 rangi at linuxconf
18:43 drojf thanks to afghan cookies i learned that there is a website that sells "fact sheets" on "how to buy hash online". yay internet
18:43 rangi one night a bunch of people took over their hotel kitchen
18:43 rangi and cooked a big shared meal
18:44 rangi i wonder if we could try to do someting like that at kohacon
18:44 cait that would be fun :)
18:44 jcamins That might be fun.
18:45 rangi it was easier here, cos it was a hostel type hotel thingy anyway
18:45 rangi so there was a communal kitchen space
18:45 rangi i dont think the hotel in reno would actually let us use there kitchen
18:45 jcamins Yeah, I'm not so sure it would be doable, but I do think it might be fun.
18:45 druthb +1
18:45 rangi their
18:45 rangi even
18:45 * druthb would make her evil peanut brittle!
18:46 bag cheese and crackers and hummas extra :)
18:46 cait lemon cake :)
18:46 bag or something were you could make food without having to cook
18:46 druthb Hi, bag!
18:46 cait or fennel salad hehe
18:46 bag hey Ruth
18:46 druthb fennel_salad++
18:47 rangi bag: oh good idea, people could bring something each
18:47 rangi i know the US has way way way less strict rules about bringing in food than nz
18:47 rangi so i could bring afghan cookies with me :)
18:47 rangi or anzac biscuits
18:48 jcamins rangi: as long as it's cooked, they don't care at all.
18:48 Dyrcona Oh! Anzac biscuits and NZ marmite!
18:48 rangi
18:48 rangi hehe
18:48 jcamins Dyrcona: no marmite. There's a crisis, man!
18:48 jcamins They had to impose rationing!
18:48 Dyrcona But... no marmite means no beer!
18:48 druthb Dyrcona:  no marmite.  'cuz it's *nasty*
18:48 * Dyrcona sobs....
18:48 druthb Tar in a jar.
18:49 rangi i think they are finally making it again
18:49 cait but now you can't buy because the company is evil or something?
18:49 * cait has seen a blog post somewhere
18:49 cait they only ship to the big chains it said
18:49 rangi
18:49 rangi yeah, they dont pay taxes
18:49 rangi and only ship to the big chains
18:49 * Dyrcona saw some discussion in the Google+ New Zealand group that the new marmite tastes different from the old.
18:49 rangi sanitarium arent the nicest company
18:50 druthb yeah, someone here in the US discovered it's good for paving roads, and cheaper than oil, so....
18:50 drojf lol
18:50 rangi however kraft who make vegemite
18:50 rangi are philip morris
18:50 rangi so they suck too
18:50 Dyrcona druthb: So, that's what they're doing in Arkansas?
18:50 druthb Given the quality of the roads in Arkansas, I would not be at all surprised.
18:50 Dyrcona rangi: So, make your own.... ;)
18:51 rangi yep :)
18:51 * Dyrcona was referring to the oil pipeline spill that is being ignored by mainstream media....
18:51 * jcamins is not a big fan of marmite.
18:51 jcamins Or vegemite.
18:51 rangi or get the english marmite which tastes slightly different again
18:51 * Dyrcona has actually never had either.
18:51 druthb oh, I know, Dyrcona.  It's been touched on some here.  Nasty mess, that.
18:52 drojf 1+ for termite. deep fried and crunchy
18:52 * Dyrcona is bored. Waiting on SQL scripts to finish running.
18:52 jcamins A friend sent me a link to a cicada cookbook.
18:52 jcamins Apparently they're expecting up to 1 billion cicadas per square mile in New York City.
18:53 drojf woah
18:53 drojf just walk along with your mouth open :D
18:53 jcamins lol
18:53 Dyrcona yep. biking keeps one's belly filled.
18:54 jcamins Actually, I'd think about trying it, if I could think of a way to catch clean ones.
18:54 cait ... you know how you recognize the nice bikers?
18:54 jcamins Since I live in New York City, that doesn't seem possible.
18:55 Dyrcona jcamins: These the 17-year cicadas?
18:55 jcamins Dyrcona: yep.
18:55 Dyrcona jcamins: We mostly have annual cicadas 'round here.
18:55 rangi cait: how?
18:56 jcamins But I refuse to pay for them.
18:56 jcamins Unless, I guess, they're less than $2/lb.
18:56 * druthb waits for it, knowing the answer to cait's question.
18:56 jcamins Dyrcona: my grandparents have annual cicadas around where they live.
18:57 jcamins Or used to.
18:57 jcamins Actually, I can't remember hearing them in recent years.
18:57 druthb she's mean, leaving rangi hanging like that.
18:57 Dyrcona Yeah...used to.....
18:57 Dyrcona We still have them here.
18:57 cait bad german joke :)
18:58 jcamins Dyrcona: so... dinner?
18:58 druthb oh, it's a bad American joke, too.
18:58 cait you recognize them becuse they have flies between their teeth (from smiling)
18:58 druthb "From the bugs in their teeth," yes.  :P
18:58 cait heh
18:58 cait bad jokes everywhere :)
18:58 jcamins Heh.
18:58 jcamins Very nice.
18:58 jcamins Shari would never try a cicada, I fear.
18:59 * druthb agrees with jcamind
18:59 druthb jcamins, even
18:59 jcamins Bah.
18:59 druthb I fear she'd flip her lid.
18:59 jcamins Cicadas aren't kosher.
18:59 Dyrcona jcamins: Because of the shell?
18:59 jcamins Because it flies instead of jumping.
18:59 Dyrcona Strange rules.....
19:00 jcamins But locust are.
19:00 jcamins I always thought locust flew in great black clouds.
19:00 Dyrcona Ah, but they can also jump....
19:00 druthb Ya watched that Charlton Heston movie too much, jcamins.
19:01 Dyrcona So, guess that's an exception.
19:01 jcamins druthb: hehe.
19:01 Dyrcona ;)
19:01 jcamins druthb: actually, it was Little House on the Prairie.
19:02 druthb Mankind has managed to either drive to extinction, or domesticate, practically every animal worth eating.  Insects are the second-most-populous lifeform on Earth, and are not domesticated, by and large. These two facts *may* be related.    Ick ick ick.
19:02 jcamins lol
19:03 nengard left #koha
19:03 jcamins So... you're saying you'd like a package of these for Christmas:[…]ered+grasshoppers ?
19:03 druthb hm.
19:04 druthb Let me think.....
19:04 druthb no.
19:04 druthb Do it, and see what happens, little man.  *ebil eye*
19:04 jeff jcamins: i have received conference booth swag consisting of an insect in a sucker. branded with some "we lick bugs" slogan or something.
19:04 jcamins jeff: nice!
19:05 druthb They sell those around here.  Tequila worms, in a liquor-flavored lollypop.
19:05 jeff jcamins: of course, i'm pretty sure this was comdex 2000 or linux business expo or something. i hope that i threw it out in a timely fashion.
19:06 tcohen bye #koha
19:07 jcamins Locust are very high in protein.
19:07 Dyrcona As are most insects and larvae.
19:07 jcamins
19:07 jcamins The More You Know!
19:07 druthb So are beans.  And steak.  And chicken.  And none of those have the crunchy shell thing going on.
19:08 cait or so many legs
19:08 Dyrcona heh
19:08 jcamins Be sure to remove the fangs when eating "very large spiders."
19:09 druthb cait++
19:09 Dyrcona jcamins: In Australia, the spiders eat you. ;)
19:09 druthb !
19:09 cait druthb: nz is safe
19:11 druthb The closest thing to an insect I'll eat is certain crustaceans, and only if someone else does the cleanin', and removin' all the legs.
19:11 jcamins And apparently a natural habitat for delicious locust! :P
19:12 Dyrcona I love this quote from that site: We strongly hope that our definition will prove helpful in your selection of ingredients.
19:12 cait druthb: I am with you on that
19:13 jcamins Dyrcona: heh.
19:14 Dyrcona From Wikipedia: Many New Zealand cicada species differ from those of other countries by being found high up on mountain tops.
19:15 drojf very large spiders? nonononono
19:15 drojf crunchy locust, why not. but spiders, never
19:16 jcamins drojf: actually, I feel the same way.
19:17 chris_n "scorpions (cut off the stinger)"
19:18 drojf the stinger is the best part :D
19:18 * chris_n feels sorry for the poor fool who does not
19:18 drojf lol
19:27 drojf so, what insects are typical for reno? ;)
19:28 jcamins Scorpions, I think.
19:28 cait ew
19:29 jcamins I know they're in other parts of Nevada, anyway.
19:29 drojf search throws »adult ladybugs«… not sure if insect or porn site. afraid to open :D
19:30 jcamins There are lots of ladybugs in New Jersey. I don't think they're particularly edible.
19:30 cait lol
19:31 drojf »phidippus_mystaceus_3_tile_hex2   My favorite jumping spider, now with improved hexagonal transformation!« with pictures. yikes
19:31 * cait won't look
19:31 jcamins lol
19:39 chris_n drojf: black widows too
19:39 chris_n not as edible I think
19:40 jcamins chris_n: probably not.
19:43 drojf cait couldn't take it anymore
19:43 druthb :P
19:44 gmcharlt the 3.12.x branch is now a thing

22:14 rangi wizzyrea++
22:15 bag that's a really nice and big team
22:15 bag biggest so far :)
22:15 wizzyrea I vote we send pie to the RM from all over the world on a successful release. :)
22:15 mtj from memory, i suggested we use vegetable names for koha releases, (and some other stuff too)
22:15 bag good call
22:15 * wizzyrea wonders how to get a steak and cheese to gmcharlt from here...
22:15 gmcharlt wizzyrea: I can get behind that pie proposal :)
22:15 bag or we coudl shaving cream pie him at the conference
22:15 wizzyrea hehehe
22:16 wizzyrea !
22:16 wizzyrea no.
22:16 bag heh :P
22:16 mtj rangi, i like gmcharlt's idea too
22:16 gmcharlt bag: if you're going to pie me, at least make it edible! ;)
22:16 bag whipped cream pie!
22:17 bag only former RM's can do that - I guess
22:17 wizzyrea hm no, I think RM humiliation is right out.
22:17 bag so umm gmcharlt you can whipped cream pie yourself (sounds odd)
22:17 rambutan joined #koha
22:18 wizzyrea can we just leave off pies in the face altogether? :P

22:41 wizzyrea we did wonder, actually
22:42 wizzyrea are you affiliated with a library
22:42 wizzyrea ?
22:42 quocuy ok, i tried to print library card with Koha
22:42 wizzyrea quocuy:
22:42 quocuy problem is that, i can't print name in unicode
22:42 wizzyrea hm yes this is probably a limitation of the PDF output possibly?
22:43 quocuy searched, asked in mailling list, Christ told me, no resolution has not yet
22:43 quocuy yes
22:44 quocuy i'm not affiliated with a library, what i am trying to do is make Koha become popular in my country
22:45 quocuy because this's perfect opensource
22:45 quocuy hello jcamins
