12:10 slef     Did Landis take them or was he given them, though?
12:13 shedges  hi owen -- saw Lauren yesterday
12:15 owen     Did she pepper you with questions? Where you left the stapler, etc?
12:19 shedges  more like 'where are the T1 lines'
12:33 kados    hehe
12:50 shedges  she needs to get started on the OPLIN survey (oplin.org/survey)
13:03 cm       is someone doing something to the wiki?  I can't get in.
13:21 cm       never mind.  I see that it's back.  :)
13:21 kados    cm: try now
13:21 cm       I beat you to it!  :D
13:21 cm       thanks!
13:22 kados    cm: how's the install coming?
13:23 cm       ugh.  I'm trying it again today.  Figured I should wait a little while to let the dust settle on dev_week.
13:23 kados    well .. it's not going to :-)
13:23 kados    but you can just update cvs to keep up
13:23 cm       figured as much, but I'll give it a shot anyway.
13:24 cm       last time I tried it was completely dysfunctional, so I'm starting over from scratch.
13:24 kados    probably a good idea
13:24 kados    :-)
13:24 kados    let me know if I can help
13:26 cm       I will, thanks.
14:40 thd      kados: I have a question
14:41 kados    thd: sure
17:23 thd      kados: the message I just sent to you exceeds the autocat list size quota by over a factor of 4
18:21 thd      russ: how do I get to the the proper /en/ section of the current wiki?
18:22 russ     hi thd
18:22 russ     two secs
18:23 thd      hello russ
18:25 russ     ah the page isnt in the right place
18:25 russ     2 minutes
18:28 russ     thd: it appears that i never made the en page, an oversight on my part
18:28 russ     just getting my password resent from the wiki
18:28 russ     and then i'll move the newwikihome there
18:28 thd      russ: I thought I posted to the /en/ page during devel week
18:29 thd      or that you had migrated the old content to a new improved /en/
18:29 russ     there is a http://wiki.koha.org/doku.php?id=newwikihome
18:29 russ     no i had made this page
18:30 russ     the intent was to make this the new en page
18:30 russ     one of the many tasks left not done
18:31 thd      russ: we need Ineo to see the light and hire pierrick back to work on Koha
18:31 russ     lol
18:32 russ     i have been slowly going through every page on the wiki trying to sort if it current or not
18:32 thd      russ: I have some new content that I want to post
18:32 thd      russ: where should I post it
18:33 russ     what is it?
18:33 thd      russ: subject searching development design for the OPAC
18:34 kados    :-)
18:34 russ     thd: under here i guess
18:34 russ     http://wiki.koha.org/doku.php?id=en:development
18:34 kados    how about en:thd :-)
18:34 thd      kados: well I could start now
18:35 kados    thd: that'd be really great, seriosuly
18:35 thd      kados: especially as I cannot post that much text on autocat
18:35 kados    thd: exactly
18:36 thd      kados: furthermore it was intended for the wiki with some wiki markup
18:36 kados    cool
18:36 thd      kados: really unreadable as text :)
18:36 chris    karen schneider is a clown
18:36 chris    http://www.techsource.ala.org/blog/2006/07/its-too-darn-hot-a-curmudgeons-asides.html
18:36 chris    since when is perl a software program
18:37 chris    arsehat
18:37 chris    thats my rant for the day :)
18:39 kados    yea, she's mental
18:43 thd      she maintains http://lii.org/
18:43 chris    yep
18:44 chris    which i could do with 7 lines of perl
18:44 chris    :)
18:44 chris    she seems to have a serious amount of time on her hands for writing blog posts and emailing lists
18:58 kados    chris: http://www.techsource.ala.org/blog/2006/07/its-too-darn-hot-a-curmudgeons-asides.html#postcomments
18:59 kados    chris: I posted a response
18:59 kados    chris: I'd urge you to do the same
18:59 kados    in fact, I'd urge the whole channel to
18:59 kados    too even
18:59 kados    russ: you around?
18:59 mason    kados, i just commited a newer version of  labels-print-pdf.pl to koha.2.2
18:59 kados    mason: k ... I'll check it out
18:59 mason    i think this coud be the one
18:59 kados    woot
19:00 mason    largely coz its using someone elses word-wrap module :)
19:00 kados    do I need to install a new module?
19:01 mason    yes :(   install Text::Wrap
19:02 chris    will do
19:02 kados    I wonder if we can get stephen to respond too
19:03 mason    chris/bob suggested that some on the big gaps in the text display may be caused by nl/cr 's in the text? ...
19:04 mason    so its doing a regex to strip those out before formatting
19:04 kados    cool
19:04 kados    looks good
19:04 kados    I'm gonna ask the client to accept it
19:04 kados    thanks mason
19:05 mason    kados: are the text big gaps gone from the agfrognak koha?
19:05 kados    it looks like it
19:06 kados    afognak, not afrognak :-)
19:06 kados    but that's really funny
19:06 mason    bah, ive been trying to remember their name :)
19:06 kados    :-)
19:07 kados    mason: can you also commit the table changes to updatedatabase
19:07 mason    yes, afognak sounds soooo much more sensible
19:07 kados    mason: and any new modules
19:07 kados    hehe
19:08 kados    chris: http://www.techsource.ala.org/blog/2006/04/how-opacs-suck-part-2-the-checklist-of-shame.html
19:08 mason    yes, will do that, i might ask chris for a hand, ive found it a bit tricky to work out
19:08 kados    chris: that's the list she means
19:08 kados    chris: I think we can do most everything on it
19:08 kados    chris: we just need to improve the way things look
19:08 kados    thd: we need to decide on the faceted subject browse feature
19:09 kados    thd: did you post your doc yet?
19:09 thd      kados: I am posting now
19:09 thd      kados: did you try to read the email
19:09 thd      ?
19:12 kados    soliciting a email
19:15 thd      kados: my document needs some global changes to be ready for the wiki
19:15 thd      kados: it is currently much more readable in the email :)
19:16 kados    thd: :-)
19:16 kados    thd: let me know when the format is readable :-)
19:17 thd      kados: how should I make the wiki equivalent of <br /> ?
19:18 kados    just put some line breaks in
19:18 thd      kados: do you mean * ?
19:19 kados    thd: no
19:19 kados    thd: just hit enter to create a line break ... that should work
19:19 kados    thd: where's the link, I'll help
19:20 thd      kados: my newlines are mushed into one line
19:21 thd      kados: http://wiki.koha.org/doku.php?id=en:development:subject_heading_element_access
19:23 kados    thd: you need to save it
19:23 kados    thd: I can't view it until you do
19:24 thd      kados: I thought you had special powers :)
19:24 kados    hehe
19:26 thd      kados: it is saved and does not even show the beginning of the document
19:36 thd      kados: I must have some code which is confusing the wiki
19:36 kados    looks like it
19:36 thd      kados: can I isolate sections of the text by degrees?
19:37 thd      kados: maybe I will empty the document add a paragraph at a time til I find a problem
19:40 kados    thd: does the NCSU catalog use FAST?
19:41 thd      kados: do you have a link to a record which looks like it is using FAST?
19:41 kados    thd: http://www2.lib.ncsu.edu/catalog/?view=full&Ntt=tom+sawyer&Ntk=Keyword&sort=0&N=4294503792
19:42 kados    thd: not a record, but the faceted results on the left-hand side
19:47 thd      kados: no their system just has the same problem with subject display for the result set as Koha had in the record detail view at until recently.
19:48 thd      kados: 650 #0 $a Boys $z Missouri $v Fiction.  is shown as Boys in the result set list
19:48 thd      kados: maybe the other subfields appear elsewhere in the list
19:48 kados    yea, it looked that way to me
19:50 thd      kados: did you read my criticism of how FAST lacks precision
19:53 kados    yep
19:53 kados    you're right
19:53 kados    but I think for a opac side-bar, it may do the trick
19:54 kados    at least for dev_week :-)
19:54 thd      kados: :(
19:55 thd      kados: you have to have a conversion application and the FAST authority files to convert LCSH to FAST before you could use it
19:55 kados    I don't think a hugely complex subject tree is going to be useful as a discovery or a limiting feature for a search performed
19:55 kados    though I do think it would be useful as a subject browse feature
19:55 kados    but that should be a separate interface I think
19:55 kados    thd: yea ...
19:56 kados    thd: I think I'm going to revert to my original design of just showing the $a
19:56 thd      kados: most of what I show in the email is browsing
19:56 kados    it's nice and simple and the user won't be confused by the hierarchical list
19:57 thd      kados: that is not a subject heading and in a real system with many records you could have a result set of 10,000s from following an $a link
19:58 thd      with the current searching design for subjects in Koha
19:59 thd      kados: actually you could have hundreds in a real system with some problems which I can show you if I get this into a viewable state
20:03 thd      kados: and I mean hundreds with a search using 3 subject subfield terms which might otherwise give you the magic 30 results that everyone wants
20:16 thd      kados: I suspect you are concerned about screen real estate
20:16 thd      kados: a good feature needs room so put at the bottom and link to from the top of the page
20:17 thd      kados: or make it a wicked pop-up
20:36 thd      I will struggle more again later
20:36 thd      s/new/knew/
