09:51 cait happy new year andreashm
09:52 andreashm happy new year cait
09:53 cait bit late... but better late than never :)
09:53 magnuse hiya cait tcohen andreashm
09:53 cait the job shadowing is a cool idea btw
09:53 magnuse yup!
09:53 magnuse swedish_koha_network++
09:55 andreashm cait: =)
09:56 andreashm it is a good idea. very popular too, many who take the chance to go see how others work with Koha
09:57 cait maybe something for the newsletter? :)
09:57 ashimema ?
09:57 ashimema did I miss something
09:57 andreashm has anyone solved the silent printing issue? previously you could use the firefox extension jsPrintSetup, and some JS to send the printouts directly to the printer (without dialog), but that doesnt work anymore.
09:58 cait ashimema: it was all swedish :)
09:58 ashimema btw.. I'm just discussing user group meeting with the boss man here.. seeing if I can do it on company time vs taking leave.. being a bit cheeky.. should reply soon
09:58 ashimema sorry for the delay
09:58 andreashm cait: yeah, probably a good idea. we should send more of what we do to the newsletter... just so little time.
09:58 cait andreashm: there is a bug with a longer discussion on it- my understanding is that it's an issueof the browsers
09:58 andreashm ashimema: cool, thanks for the update!
09:59 ashimema it's a security 'feature' I'm afraid andreashm
09:59 andreashm cait: yeah, it is.
09:59 andreashm ashimema: yeah, I know.
09:59 ashimema it does make sense that a browser can't print without a dialogue.. but it is annoying
09:59 cait i am not sure if it makes so much sense in the era of having everything web based
09:59 cait a way to allow it for certain things would be nice
10:00 andreashm Was just wondering how others to it. I'm sure a lot of other large libraries don't fancy clicking a print dialog everytime a recipt is printed?
10:00 ashimema we face the same fun question ocassionally but haven't really found a good solution either..
10:00 ashimema we're also struggling to find a way of opening up a cash till drawer
10:00 ashimema qz tray seemed to be the only thing available
10:01 andreashm ashimema: is that working?
10:02 andreashm I was going to investigate qz tray, since I saw it mentioned on the silent_print bug
10:02 andreashm bug 19637
10:02 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=19637 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, koha-bugs, NEW , jsPrintSetup not supported in Firefox Quantum
10:03 ashimema it does.. but it's a pain as you have to install it on all computers in the library
10:03 ashimema and install certificates to ensure it's secure I think
10:03 andreashm I've heard of another Swedish library working on a solution for creating PDFs of the print and sending to the printer server-side. But don't think they are finished yet, so am looking at other options.
10:05 andreashm ashimema: well, the jsprintsetup add-on needed to be installed on all computers as well. so maybe might work as a quick (ha!) fix.
10:05 ashimema hehe
10:05 tcohen we could do it server side, using Google Cloud Print
10:05 ashimema that would work.. I think
10:05 ashimema good idea tcoehn
10:05 ashimema tcohen  even
10:06 ashimema we needed qa tray for the till drawer opening as much as anything else
10:09 andreashm tcohen: google cloud print?
10:09 * andreashm goes to google it (ha! again)
10:12 cait ew google
10:12 cait that#s personal data you are sending to a web service?
10:13 cait not sure how that works... but thinking about the info we print on slips and the like not sure i want to send it through the internet
10:15 andreashm yeah, might be an issue
10:16 ashimema it's a hard problem to solve :(
10:19 cait googling for privacy and google print service doesn't make me want to write the GDPR docs for that ;)
10:22 * cait sends cookies
10:38 tcohen it is just an idea
10:38 tcohen it might serve some people
10:38 tcohen and not others
10:38 tcohen printer vendors have their own tools too, for internet printing
10:38 andreashm ideas are good!
10:38 tcohen HP, Epson, etc
10:39 * ashimema goes for tea
10:40 cait some ILs send email to printers
10:41 cait but you often need special software i think to do the print queues
10:41 cait and there can be delays
10:42 ashimema indeed
10:43 ashimema POS (Point Of Sale) is just notoriously challenging to do from a browser.. but not impossible)

13:05 ashimema @karma ashimema
13:05 huginn ashimema: Karma for "ashimema" has been increased 269 times and decreased 0 times for a total karma of 269.
13:06 ashimema blimey.. fair bit of catching up still to do if I want to get in reach of you three eager beavers at the top :P
13:09 oleonard ashimema I think you'll find that Brexit has already greatly devalued your karma. You probably couldn't get a can of beans with it now.
13:09 ashimema very true
13:09 ashimema but then I image trump has done similar for yours ;)
13:11 oleonard I traded all my karma for this tiny American flag which was made in China
13:11 ashimema lol

14:03 eythian calire: I'm concerned that your typoed nickname is normalising the misspelling of that name for me.
14:04 calire ;)
14:04 tcohen language evolution
14:04 eythian One day I'm going to get stuck spelling it wrong if I end up working with a claire here.
14:04 calire It's the typo I used to always make when signing off emails
14:05 eythian Mine - and I've seen others do this too - is "robing"
14:05 eythian because -ing is pretty much a reflex.
14:05 calire nice
14:12 oleonard "Robing" is so much less commonly used than "disrobing"
14:13 eythian for better or for worse.

20:11 caroline Hi native english speakers! :) Would you say that "Opened" is a good alternative to "Open" in the sense of "the state of being open"?
20:12 caroline Since Open is both a state and a verb, it causes problems in the french translation
20:14 rangi whats the context caroline, can you use it in a sentence?
20:15 caroline rangi: right now I'm on
20:15 caroline It's not really in a sentence, it a tab
20:15 caroline There's an "Open" tab and a "Closed" tab
20:15 rangi opened and open arent always the same, depending on the tense
20:15 rangi something can have been opened, but not currently be open
20:15 rangi if that makes sense?
20:16 caroline Ok so maybe for that one we could change it to something like "ongoing"?
20:16 rangi that would work better
20:16 rangi in progress
20:16 rangi ongoing
20:16 rangi either of those

20:54 caroline how's stockholm?
20:54 andreashm same here
20:54 andreashm snow mixed with rain actually. not the most fun weather
20:55 caroline so far the winter has been pretty mild here (we had a brown christmas), but since monday, it's always -14 and snow
20:56 caroline huginn is going to make me lie...
20:56 huginn caroline: I'll give you the answer as soon as RDA is ready
20:56 wahanui i already had it that way, huginn.
20:56 caroline @wunder Montreal, Canada
20:57 andreashm white x-mas here, but since the weather has been bad. had a severe storm, that caused som major problems. we had a power outage for three days. so many trees knocked over it took the power companies a long time to repair. so parts a bit further north still has no power.
20:57 caroline @wunder Montreal, Quebec
20:57 andreashm @wunder stockholm
20:57 caroline wow that's bad!
20:57 caroline I think wunder is broken
20:57 andreashm seems so
20:57 caroline (I meant that's bad about the storm not wunder)
20:58 andreashm hehe
20:58 caroline was it an ice storm or a snow storm?

22:31 enoch_pi joined #koha
22:32 enoch_pi soooooo for those that care...koha runs pretty dern saweet on raspberry pi B+ w/Stretch
22:33 caroline awesome!
22:37 enoch_pi :-) thanks to rangi and cait it was possible to build and test...i am running plack and memcache and it is now running better than when i had it on the laptop for testing
22:45 enoch_pi has anyone created a registration page where a patron can 'register' and then staff can approve/disapprove it?
22:46 caroline There is the auto registration function in Koha.
22:46 caroline I think you have to activate it in sys prefs
22:46 caroline PatronSelfRegistration
22:47 caroline If you go in Administration > Global system preferences > OPAC there is a whole section
22:47 caroline is that what you were looking for?
22:48 enoch_pi i believe so. basically it will allow a patron to register/create their account? I am not near my Koha so i can not look at it right now
22:48 caroline Yes they will be able to create a temporary account, and then a notification will appear on the staff main screen to confirm
22:49 enoch_pi gotcha! that is what I am looking for! I will check into that when i get the chance
22:49 caroline +1!
22:49 enoch_pi thank you caroline
22:50 caroline no prob :)
22:50 enoch_pi i was dreading the perl code lol
22:50 caroline someone already did it for you :)
22:50 enoch_pi thank gawds!! LOL
22:50 enoch_pi how us your day?
22:51 enoch_pi is*
22:51 caroline so busy I'm dizzy @_@
22:52 caroline getting ready to go pet some cats at the shelter to de stress :)
