02:46 rangi           hey cait
02:46 cait            hmpf
02:46 rangi           cait: i heard from nengard
02:46 cait            ?
02:46 cait            I was checking my mail
02:47 cait            what did she say?
02:47 rangi           ruth is out of surgery, in her room, all is well
02:47 cait            the minion sind a short note too, but was 3 hours ago
02:47 cait            ah, that's what I got too :)
02:47 rangi           :)
02:47 cait            ok, going back to sleep for another hour
02:48 cait            thx :)
02:48 rangi           :)
03:33 Amit_Gupta      heya chris ;)
03:33 Amit_Gupta      good morning koha ;)
03:34 rangi           hi Amit_Gupta :)
03:44 phlunk3         rangi, just before I start this vm setup, can you confirm that 10.04 server version will be fine? and also is 32bit fine or do I need the 64 preferably?
03:45 rangi           id do 64 bit
03:45 rangi           because one day you may want to give it more than 3gig of ram
03:46 phlunk3         its just a small school and the server is dedicated to koha, u think it could need more than 3gig of ram?
03:46 rangi           who knows, but doesnt hurt to let it have the possibility
03:49 phlunk3         tx rangi, sorted :)
03:49 phlunk3         you are chris btw?
03:49 rangi           yup
03:50 phlunk3         how long have you been working on this system? I havent even had a chance to see it yet, but hopefully will get some time after this upgrade to see what the system does.
03:50 phlunk3         never really dealt with this sort of system in my past jobs.
03:50 rangi           since september 99
03:50 eythian         he's pretty much a newbie
03:51 rangi           heh
03:52 phlunk3         also, I take it if I install through the ubuntu package that updates in the future are going to be very pain-free?
03:52 eythian         ideally
03:52 rangi           id probably use the ones at debian.koha-community.org
03:52 rangi           those are better tested than the ones in the ppa
03:52 phlunk3         thanks
03:52 rangi           for production anyway
03:53 rangi           id appreciate the ubuntu ones being tested tho, if you have any dev environments
03:53 rangi           they *should* be the same ... but launchpad does some trickery
03:53 phlunk3         Im afraid I am currently down to a single laptop :(
03:54 rangi           ah
03:54 rangi           heres a good tutorial
03:55 rangi           http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Setting_Up_Koha_in_Virtual_Environment_%2B_Using_That_as_a_Development_Environment
03:55 rangi           for setting up a koha dev env in a vm
03:55 rangi           if you ever need to

05:07 cait            morning
05:16 francharb       hello #koha
05:18 cait            morning francharb :)
05:56 kmkale          Hi, can anyone tell me how I should go about applying this bunch of patches for Analytic Records and then using the same? http://git.koha-community.org/gitweb/?p=koha.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/new/awaiting_qa/analytical_records
06:11 kf              good morning #koha
06:14 hdl             hi kf
06:15 kmkale          I want to test this branch http://git.koha-community.org/gitweb/?p=koha.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/new/awaiting_qa/analytical_records It seems to be based on old templating system. Is iit possible to do so from a system which is currently tracking master?
06:15 kf              hi hdl and kmkale
06:15 kmkale          i kf hdl
06:16 kmkale          *hi :)
06:18 hdl             kmkale: if you want to test that on template toolkit, you may translate the templates... http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Template_toolkit_translation_tools
06:18 hdl             Consider rebasing them over the latest templates.... And even over the queued patches.
06:19 kmkale          yay.
06:20 kmkale          so the steps are like this? 1) create a new local branch tracking the remote origin/new/awaiting_qa/analytical_records branch
06:21 kmkale          2) use template_toolkit_translation_tools to translate templates
06:21 kf              kmkale: I think there is a way to convert, a script
06:21 kf              but because they are quite old now there might be still a lot of conflicts
06:21 kmkale          3) make upgrade as usual
06:21 kmkale          4) test???
06:22 kf              http://lists.koha-community.org/pipermail/koha-devel/2011-April/035416.html

11:01 Barrc           Does anyone have any suggestions how to upgrade from 2.2.7 to 3.4.2?
11:02 Barrc           The 2.2.7 version is complete vanilla with no customisations or modifications.
11:02 Barrc           How would dropping the 2.2.7 database into t a vanilla 3.4.2 install work, and then running the web installer?
11:03 rangi           nope
11:03 rangi           http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Upgrading_2.2
11:04 Barrc           yeah, I have seen that. It takes about moving to 3.0 and an inplace upgrade.
11:04 rangi           follow that to get it to 3.0.x and from there you can go to 3.4.2 (following the upgrade information in the INSTALL file)
11:04 rangi           right, thats what you have to do
11:04 Barrc           I really need to migrate which is what I should have said - sorry
11:04 rangi           right you cant
11:05 rangi           you'll need to make a copy of your 2.2.7 install it, upgrade it
11:05 Barrc           hum, maybe if I build 2.2.7 on the new server and go from there.....
11:05 rangi           yup
11:05 Barrc           oh well - t'will be tricky - thanks!
11:07 rangi           once you get it to 3.0 you can dump the db, load it in
11:07 rangi           the webinstaller will then do most, but you do need to run one other script, its documented in the INSTALL file
11:08 rangi           and good luck :)
11:11 Barrc           thanks
11:15 slef            Barrc: and if you get completely stuck, we're next door in Scotland and England ;-)
11:16 slef            but what rangi is basically the way
11:16 slef            what rangi says, even
11:17 Barrc           slef: ha, you might regret that, I'll be on the boat with server in hand!
11:18 slef            Barrc: heh, better than us going the other way!
11:19 slef            I wonder if the HSS is still on Holyhead-Dublin and Stranraer-Belfast
11:21 Barrc           Certainly Holyhead to Dublin/Dun Laoghaire still goes, I use it often
11:25 slef            Barrc: cool. They took it off Harwich to Hoek van Holland, saying that fuel cost too much.
11:26 slef            I don't like boats but catamarans are OK, even that big.
11:27 Barrc           Anything as long as it doesn't fly will do me!!
11:31 slef            wish I could agree ;-)
11:33 * rangi         goes to sleep cya's tomorrow
11:34 slef            bye rangi!
11:38 kf              ah, now he is gone
11:38 wahanui         i already had it that way, kf.
11:39 kf              forget ah
11:39 kf              forget... I hav eno idea

12:59 JesseM          Hi kf!
13:03 nengard         oleonard - agree
13:04 nengard         but it's sometimes a sentence and that's long for a pull down
13:04 nengard         but if you can truncate it :)
13:04 nengard         maybe truncate it and put the code in parense after it
13:04 nengard         parens
13:05 oleonard        I made a comment on the bug regarding that: The maximum length of the authorised_value is the same as for the description, so potentially the length of each could be the same
13:05 oleonard        It's really just a choice of the librarian to use something shorter for the authorised_value (or not)
13:06 talljoy         Morning all!  I am looking for the name of the script to import authority records into koha.  Is it bulkauthimport.pl?
13:06 kf              bulkmarcimport with -a as option
13:07 talljoy         so bulkmarcimport.pl -a filename  ?
13:07 kf              hm not sure about the option, but it has documentation
13:07 talljoy         okay  on the wiki?
13:07 jcamins_away    talljoy: something like that.
13:07 kf              try -h
13:07 kf              or --h
13:07 jcamins         If you run bulkmarcimport.pl without any arguments, that'll do it.
13:08 talljoy         do i need to specify a file name?
13:08 jcamins         talljoy: not if you want help. :)
13:08 * jcamins       hasn't had breakfast yet.
13:09 * talljoy       is still sucking down her first cup of coffee
13:09 oleonard        nengard: Here's an example that shows a maxed-out description length: http://www.screencast.com/t/h2WQbzeHiWR
13:10 jcamins         "Attention! You must fill out this online form now!!! PS- our server is shut down until the fall."
13:11 oleonard        Poor server needs a vaycay.
13:12 nengard         oleonard that works
13:12 nengard         but some libraries might want that code in there too - I'm not sure

13:54 Carl            Hello!
13:55 oleonard        Hi Carl
13:55 Carl            I have a question about a missing "Save"-button in the Koha admin
13:55 Carl            under "Staff client"
13:56 wizzyrea        question?
13:56 Carl            And this is a opportunity to try this Koha chat
13:56 oleonard        /cgi-bin/koha/admin/preferences.pl?tab=staff_client ?
13:57 Carl            well, I made some changes under "intranetcolorstylesheet"
13:57 oleonard        I do find that the save button is partially obscured by the language chooser. Do you have translations enabled?
13:58 Carl            hm, well, I don't think so
13:58 Carl            can you describe in more detail?
13:59 oleonard        Carl, you would have had to manually install translations and enable them
13:59 oleonard        Carl, what version of Koha are you using?
14:00 Carl            3.3 a think
14:00 Carl            I think
14:00 oleonard        Carl, you see no "Save all Staff Client preferences" button at the bottom of the page?
14:00 Carl            and I'm a very new user...
14:00 wizzyrea        just curious, what changes did you make to the intranetcolorstylesheet
14:00 Carl            precisely, it disapeared
14:01 Carl            som bad changes I guess...
14:01 Carl            a copied a code from a forum
14:02 wizzyrea        can you paste it here?
14:02 oleonard        Paste it here if you still have it: http://paste.koha-community.org/
14:02 * wizzyrea      wonders if you could negate the offending css using firebug then undo it
14:02 wizzyrea        so you had a save button
14:03 Carl            yes
14:03 Carl            and than it went away
14:03 Carl            inline styles */ #login h1 { background:url("http://www.myacpl.org/sites/all/themes/npl/logo.png") no-repeat scroll center top transparent; } #login h1 a { height:71px; }
14:03 Carl            maybe some part is missing
14:03 oleonard        that looks familiar
14:03 * wizzyrea      giggles
14:03 Carl            ok?
14:04 * jcamins       was just about to say it was familiar, too
14:04 wizzyrea        (we laugh because oleonard wrote that post)
14:04 wizzyrea        ;)
14:04 Carl            :-)
14:05 Carl            well, the problem is that I want to delete it
14:05 Carl            before our IT staff comes back from vacation
14:05 oleonard        Carl, did you put that in intranetcolorstylesheet or in IntranetUserCSS?
14:05 Carl            in intranetcolorstylesheet
14:06 wizzyrea        oooo
14:07 Carl            I should say that I'm just an ordinary librarian, trying to learn the back end stuff
14:07 wizzyrea        everybody starts somewhere :)
14:07 vfernandes      hi Koha community :)
14:07 wizzyrea        hi vfernandes
14:07 Carl            yes, indeed
14:08 wizzyrea        in my experience there are no 'ordinary' librarians.
14:08 Carl            but, is there maybe an "undo" function in Koha?
14:08 oleonard        Carl: That stuff should have gone into the IntranetUserCSS pref instead. However, I can't duplicate your problem event if I put it in intranetcolorstylesheet
14:08 Carl            ok
14:08 vfernandes      one question... i'm using koha 3.2.6 and in the detail page if the record title as " the catalogue toolbar doesn't appear correctly
14:08 Carl            maybe you didn't get the full code
14:08 Carl            oleonard
14:08 wahanui         oleonard is, like, the master UI designer of koha or an awesome bug wrangler
14:09 oleonard        Carl: I also find that if I clear the intranetcolorstylesheet form field and hit enter with the cursor still in the field the form submits
14:10 Carl            hm, not for me
14:10 wizzyrea        which browser?
14:11 Carl            Firefox 5.0.1 Mac
14:11 Carl            but I have tried om PC with IE also
14:12 jcamins         Carl: try this: use the syspref search function to search for Intranetcolor
14:12 jcamins         Do you have a save button on that page?
14:12 jcamins         (on the search results page, that is)
14:13 * oleonard      can submit with enter in IE8
14:14 Carl            ok, wait
14:14 Carl            no save button
14:15 Barrc           help! - just got Koha 2.2.7 up on a server with a view to upgrade, however I can't figure out the search/indexing - anyone remember it?
14:15 Carl            ahhh, thank you jcamins!!
14:15 wizzyrea        searching faq?
14:15 wahanui         searching faq is at http://koha-community.org/documentation/faq/searching/
14:16 oleonard        that won't help with 2.2.7 though
14:16 wizzyrea        oh true
14:16 oleonard        There wasn't any indexing in 2.2.7, just brute mysql
14:16 * wizzyrea      read that 2 as a 3
14:16 Carl            no save button, but I was able to use the enter cursor as oleonard suggested
14:16 wizzyrea        is it working now?
14:16 Carl            yes!
14:16 wizzyrea        great!
14:16 Carl            thank you!
14:17 jcamins         Barrc: do you mean *3*.2.7?
14:17 Barrc           Nope - 2.2.7
14:17 Carl            I will surely use this chat again!
14:17 Barrc           I need to migrate it to 3.4

14:17 Barrc           so I have to start with 2.2.7 on the new server, then import the existing 2.2.7 DB, then upgrade
14:18 Barrc           No - there doesn't seem to be any mention of Zebra
14:18 wizzyrea        right, 2.2
14:18 wizzyrea        so, in migration tools, there's no "rebuild index" at lal?
14:18 wizzyrea        all*
14:18 * wizzyrea      will shut up now
14:18 Barrc           no - there are 8 scripts, all related to rebuilding
14:18 jcamins         Barrc: in that case, I can't give you any useful advice. 2.2.7 is very old, but that's about all I know about it.
14:18 Barrc           no index mentioned
14:19 wizzyrea        ...

14:20 Barrc           oleonard: I have an old 2.2.7 install that we need to get up to 3.4.2. However, we need to move it to another server also
14:20 * chris_n       heads off to the phone booth to change outfits
14:20 Barrc           So, I installed 2.2.7 on the new server and imported the sqldump from the old server into it
14:21 Barrc           I was then looking for zebra to rebuild but I can't find it anywhere. If I search Koha (2.2.7) I get hit counts but not bib/item info
14:23 oleonard        Barrc: Yeah, no Zebra in 2.2.7
14:23 oleonard        No idea why your search isn't working though
14:23 Barrc           All the bibs say "No Title" - seems to get a hit count though!
14:24 wizzyrea        maybe a framework problem?
14:24 oleonard        I'm guessing two possibilities: 1) Your import went wrong somehow or 2) The import went fine, it's a problem with 2.2.7, and when you upgrade everything will be okay
14:24 oleonard        That is a guess, though.
14:24 Barrc           I was thinking about option 2 myself - hoping it might be the case.
14:25 kf              chris_n: still around?

15:12 oleonard        wizzyrea: Do your libraries each do their own cataloging on site?
15:15 wizzyrea        oleonard: yes sir, they do
15:16 oleonard        Okay, then I can't compare workflows. We do all our cataloging at the main library and then distribute.
15:16 wizzyrea        oo
15:16 oleonard        We need a better way of keeping track of stuff between when it is cataloged and when it reaches the branches
15:17 wizzyrea        oh i see.
15:17 wizzyrea        well there's that cataloging to cart feature thinger
15:17 wizzyrea        sec let me find the bug
15:17 oleonard        that uses shelving location doesn't it?
15:17 wizzyrea        I think so yea
15:18 oleonard        Yeah, I don't find shelving location to be useful when there isn't an easy way for the circ staff to set or unset it
15:18 wizzyrea        because batchmod can't unset it?

15:18 wizzyrea        AHA
15:18 oleonard        I want a transfers-like interface for shelving location.
15:19 wizzyrea        oooo
15:19 wizzyrea        now that is actually a really good idea
15:20 wizzyrea        the way 3481 works is kind of silly
15:20 * oleonard      listens for the sound of wizzyrea running off to write it right now
15:25 wizzyrea        heh
15:26 oleonard        In fact, I see no reason why shelving location shouldn't be integrated into the existing transfers page
15:27 wizzyrea        you're thinking scan a barcode, pick a location, click submit?
15:27 wizzyrea        or pick a location, scan a barcode, it autosubmits
15:27 oleonard        The latter
15:27 wizzyrea        yea, the 2nd is probably more realistic
15:28 wizzyrea        and you'd want circ staff to be able to do that
15:28 wizzyrea        so no cataloging permissions required
15:29 oleonard        Right, so that I can have the circ staff move something from the shelf to the display case, for instance
15:29 * wizzyrea      wonders why it doesn't work like that now.
15:29 wizzyrea        :P

17:08 jcamins         Ooh, LibraryThing is expanding.
17:23 sekjal          jcamins:  I think I'm on the right track of non-ICU diacritics search support
17:23 magnuse         sekjal++
17:24 jcamins         Woohoo!
17:24 jcamins         How?
17:24 sekjal          I was able to get a record to turn up in my diacritic-less search that previously only appeared with accented characters
17:24 jcamins         Excellent!
17:24 sekjal          solution:  format the record in NFC
17:25 jcamins         Does that work with A-with-a-macron?
17:25 sekjal          was testing on O-with-an-umlaut
17:25 jcamins         Because that's one of the letters where NFC and NFKC may be different.
17:27 hdl             sekjal: the NFC encoding is default in koha iirc... is it not ?
17:27 hdl             at least I think i sent some patches about that months ago
17:27 jcamins         hdl: for display, yes.
17:28 sekjal          jcamins:  I'll test on that specific one next
17:28 hdl             jcamins: for our devs, even in marcxml
17:28 jcamins         hdl: however, the work from BibLibre that I saw only affected the display and not the storage.
17:28 hdl             it is done in C4::Biblio
17:28 sekjal          hdl:  I'm not sure how the MARC records were getting normalized, but they're not all uniformly in NFC
17:28 sekjal          could be any number of reasons
17:29 sekjal          best solution would be to figure out how to make sure they're always NFC before saving, but barring that, my fixer script could be used periodically to do cleanup
17:29 kf              oleonard: it's a nice idea :)
17:29 kf              oh... should scroll first

17:31 hdl             But wel...
17:32 sekjal          hdl:  but that would only apply for AddBiblio... what about in cases of modifying or overlaying with Z39.50 records?
17:32 jcamins         hdl: I seem to remember there being a problem with that that I commented on on bugzilla.
17:32 hdl             have not seen your coment
17:33 jcamins         I'm looking for it now.
17:33 jcamins         Hm. Can't seem to find it.
17:34 hdl             sekjal: it always get into your catalogue through AddBiblio
17:35 jcamins         hdl: you had added a SetUTF8Flag call to opac-details.pl at one point, because there were certain circumstances where the records weren't being normalized, hadn't you?
17:35 jcamins         Yes.

17:35 huginn`         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=5965 minor, PATCH-Sent, ---, paul.poulain, RESOLVED FIXED, Make sure opac-detail.pl outputs marc in utf-8
17:35 hdl             Yes... at that moment, I had problems with display
17:35 jcamins         So whatever that underlying issue is needs to be fixed.
17:36 hdl             But also thought that Koha should internally normalize the Unicode Encoding.
17:36 jcamins         I agree.
17:36 hdl             and since NFC was to be used...
17:36 hdl             for display.
17:36 sekjal          okay, great, so we've got a subroutine for correctly normalizing MARC records into NFC
17:36 hdl             And yaz-icu was coping with NFD transformation.
17:37 sekjal          so, I guess the thing to do is to fix up all the existing records into NFC, then run the system normally for a while, and see if any lose their normalization
17:37 sekjal          if so, then there is code somewhere that bypasses SetUTF8Flag()
17:38 jcamins         Iff you have upgraded the database to 3.4, everything should be correct.
17:38 jcamins         The remove_biblioitems script uses ModBiblio, does it not?
17:39 sekjal          jcamins:  yes, it does
17:39 sekjal          I'm currently testing this on a pre 3-4 system
17:39 jcamins         sekjal: ah.
17:39 sekjal          perhaps that's why
17:39 jcamins         sekjal: try running touch_all_biblios.
17:41 jcamins         (to see if that corrects the normalization)

18:48 hdl             good night
18:49 wizzyrea        hmm apparently if you hit enter when presented with a "confirm hold" dialog, it doesn't confirm or ignore the hold, but it does close the transfer
18:50 wizzyrea        that seems like odd behavior
18:51 oleonard        I think the question is where is the focus
18:51 wizzyrea        *nod*
18:51 oleonard        Probably in the barcode field
18:52 wizzyrea        this also happens if you scan another item without clicking confirm
18:52 wizzyrea        (it's my opinion that it should do nothing until the confirm or ignore button is clicked)
18:54 oleonard        I think I agree
18:59 sekjal          wizzyrea:  I recall a great discussion about this issue some weeks/months ago

19:12 oleonard        I think I still vote for hiding the barcode field and display only the confirmation message
19:12 * oleonard      doesn't like the disabled barcode field in circ, thinks it should either work or not be there
19:13 wizzyrea        oh and regarding user behavior
19:13 wizzyrea        the software is wrong, not the people >.>
19:13 wizzyrea        though people are often inconsistent.
19:15 wizzyrea        oleonard: I like that
19:15 oleonard        That disabled barcode field is an itch I've been meaning to scratch.
19:15 wizzyrea        hide the barcode field and focus one of the buttons (probably confirm?)
19:15 sekjal          syspref to choose focus on confirm/cancel?
19:15 wizzyrea        and we'd need to make sure to address the situation where it's just a transit message
19:15 wizzyrea        with no buttons
19:16 wizzyrea        (leave the barcode box alone)
19:16 wizzyrea        seems silly to have to have a syspref for it, but I suppose it should probably be so yea

19:17 rhcl            reading the irc from back then...just a followup note, barcode readers can be programmed to either send a carriage return or not
19:17 wizzyrea        right, but you want it in most cases
19:17 wizzyrea        all of our libraries send a CR
19:17 wizzyrea        and prefer it that way
19:17 rhcl            yea, but for programming you can't presume either
19:17 sekjal          or else a bit of JQuery people could add to change default focus to "cancel", for those few folks who'd want to do that
19:18 wizzyrea        ^^ seems like a less expansive, and perhaps better solution
19:18 oleonard        Ain't no one gonna get into reprogramming their barcode reader for this

19:20 wizzyrea        i think make the behavior default
19:20 wizzyrea        and we can jquery our way out of it
19:20 wizzyrea        if necessary
19:21 oleonard        Make what behavior default?
19:21 wizzyrea        confirm as default focus
19:21 wizzyrea        print/confirm should be an explicit decision
19:21 wizzyrea        as should ignore
19:21 wizzyrea        and if someone wants it different, they can do that with jquery. It's one of the reasons koha is so flexible

19:23 wizzyrea        k
19:25 oleonard        Okay, here's a tricky one. Should some error messages require confirmation as well? "No item with that barcode," for instance?
19:25 wizzyrea        i think that one's purely informational
19:25 wizzyrea        imo
19:26 wizzyrea        we just sent you down the rabbit hold didn't we
19:26 wizzyrea        s/hold/hole
19:38 wizzyrea        I think that there are actually 2 different things going on here
19:38 wizzyrea        now that i've looked at it closely
19:40 wizzyrea        holds with incoming transits 1. don't show the ignore button 2. simply scanning the book completes the transfer, but 3. if you just hit enter, it's like you clicked ignore but 4. the status is wrong (screencap to come)
19:40 oleonard        Quick demo: http://screencast.com/t/299TjpzAd8ss (minus any focus-handling)
19:43 wizzyrea        oleonard++ that's good. What does it look like when it's an incoming transfer?
19:43 wizzyrea        writing this bug may be a bigger pita than you fixing it lol ;)
19:44 rangi           those are the best kind of bugs
19:44 oleonard        You mean something which is already marked as waiting but is coming from another branch wizzyrea ?
19:44 rangi           much better than the other way round
19:44 wizzyrea        I mean something that is in transit to your branch to fill a hold
19:45 wizzyrea        ex: lib A book in transit to lib B, what does it look like when that gets checked in
19:45 wizzyrea        to fill a hold
19:46 cait            oleonard: I like the new table sorter thing :)
19:47 rangi           it shouldn't be waiting at that point, should get marked waiting when checked in, if the librarian wants it to be marked waiting
19:47 cait            checking your screenshots :)
19:47 oleonard        You're right rangi
19:47 rangi           cait: ill find the playlist when I get to work
19:48 rangi           heard anything more about ruth?
19:48 wizzyrea        there was a post from lindsey this morning
19:48 wizzyrea        but mostly that said "she's ok and was awake"
19:49 wizzyrea        http://www.librarygeekgirl.net/
19:49 rangi           yup thats the last I saw too
19:49 rangi           cool
19:49 rangi           awake and ok is good
19:49 wizzyrea        *nod*
19:49 rhcl            Kelly likes the ignore button.
19:50 oleonard        wizzyrea: In the example you ask about there's just the confirm and print/confirm buttons. No ignore. So you would have to choose one of those options to proceed.
19:51 wizzyrea        right.
19:51 wizzyrea        sharon was wondering why there was no ignore. But that's another issue.
19:51 oleonard        It item is already allocated for a patron, so there's not really anything an 'ignore' button could do
19:52 oleonard        The ignore button in the other message is to let you *not* allocate that copy to that person if you don't want to
19:52 wizzyrea        excellent that's a great explanation
19:52 wizzyrea        and also explains the message
19:53 wizzyrea        that makes perfect sense, and sharon agrees that your approach is just great
19:53 wizzyrea        what happens if it's just a transit home with no hold?
19:54 wizzyrea        (aside, it might be nice to click through that message
19:54 rangi           then a voice just screams "incoming" and everyone ducks and rolls
19:54 wizzyrea        LOL
19:54 wizzyrea        that really did make me laugh
19:55 rangi           and that is why im banned from interface design
19:56 wizzyrea        you know the librarians *were* asking for an additional sound cue there.
19:56 wizzyrea        rangi screaming "incoming" might be just the ticket
19:56 wizzyrea        they ought to be careful what they wish for
19:57 rangi           heh
19:58 oleonard        wizzyrea: "it might be nice to click through that message" ?
19:58 wizzyrea        never mind. librarians are fickle.
19:58 wizzyrea        @quote get 123

19:59 wizzyrea        i should say, people are fickle.

20:37 cait            nengard: more hugs from me!
20:37 rangi           hehe
20:37 nengard         she's all smiles over here
20:37 nengard         druthb asks cait to sing soft kitty
20:38 cait            oh

20:39 wizzyrea        when she's feeling up to it
20:39 nengard         she's not allowed to move right now :(
20:39 nengard         has to lay flat
20:39 cait            promise her I will sing :)
20:39 nengard         I would need morphine to deal with that
20:39 wizzyrea        ^^
20:39 nengard         but once she can sit up she'll be up ot it
20:39 rangi           caits singing isnt that bad nengard!!!
20:39 cait            hehe
20:40 nengard         that's not what i meant!!
20:40 nengard         and you know it
20:40 rangi           hehe
20:40 nengard         I meant the laying still bit
20:40 rangi           the logs don't lie
20:40 nengard         the logs don't know when is tarted typing
20:40 cait            yep, you said _you_ would need morphine
20:40 nengard         i started typing
20:40 nengard         and brooke says she'll sit on you
20:40 nengard         rangi
20:40 rangi           i can outrun her
20:40 cait            I think he can
20:41 nengard         brooke says you think you can outrun her
20:41 cait            ... and I am gonna stop brooke from running after him
20:41 wizzyrea        seems likely he chases 2 kids under 5 most of the time.
20:41 wizzyrea        and his kids are *fast*
20:41 nengard         stubbor brooke still thinks she's right
20:41 nengard         stubborn
20:44 cait            stubborn sounds like brooke :)

20:51 nengard         jcamins regarding the 505 patch
20:51 nengard         i don't think i have one waiting for sign off in my email
20:51 jcamins         nengard: hm, in that case, I didn't write one, I just thought about it.
20:52 jcamins         This would be from a while ago.
20:54 nengard         jcamins do you know what bug it was attached to?
20:54 nengard         so i could search for it?
20:59 jcamins         nengard: unfortunately, no.
21:03 jcamins         If you couldn't find it by searching for jcamins and 505, though, I probably never actually wrote it.

21:40 cait            hi liw
21:41 rangi           another cool thing about branchable.com is by paying for it, you give liw money, which gives him time to create more cool software .. its win-win
21:42 hdl             hi rangi. Just answered that.
21:42 rangi           hdl: excellent thanks ;)

21:48 cait            rangi: aha!
21:53 libsysguy       I have another git question
21:53 libsysguy       maybe I should change my name to gitquestionguy
21:53 rangi           heh
21:54 libsysguy       anyway...when you do a rebase...is it git rebase origin or git rebase master
21:54 jcamins         rangi: ikiwiki does have a dark side, though... once you start using it, you'll never be able to go back to anything else.
21:54 rangi           jcamins: i call that a feature ;)
21:54 jcamins         libsysguy: git rebase origin/master
21:54 libsysguy       so the / matters
21:54 rangi           libsysguy: its git rebase whatever branch you want to rebase on
21:54 rangi           it could be origin/master
21:55 libsysguy       oh...
21:55 rangi           it might be origin/fruitbasket
21:55 rangi           or git rebase cheesesticks

21:55 rangi           k, ill look now
21:57 wizzyrea        it also seems to accept a space as a patron barcode, for multiple patrons.
21:57 wizzyrea        I thought they were supposed to be unique?

22:06 rangi           now in that form, the cardnumber isnt passed, so its undef all ready
22:07 rangi           then later it just calls &ModMember(%newdata)
22:07 rangi           which cheerfully replaces the cardnumber with null
22:08 rangi           because now the db allows that
22:08 cait            sounds ouch

23:53 rangi           not yet
23:53 rangi           we should get bug to add that
23:53 eythian         yeah.
23:53 rangi           with his python skills
23:53 rangi           and a -s and -3 switches
23:53 eythian         Alternately, is there a way to mark a patch that's been signed off on committable?
23:53 eythian         err
23:53 eythian         other way around
