X-servers and improved shells for W*ndows.

Apparently this does not require Cygwin, but provides an X-server for FREE.

This is offtopic, but it is a cmd.exe replacement that supports a tabbed interface (look at version 2.0). Good if you miss "screen" when using Win32, I suppose. (Screen itself is available for Cygwin as an unofficial build, but I have not tried it.)

Available available available

The library is changed. The publication status is still not right, but the available books should be available and the "On Loan" ones loaned.

Next step: get books that are loaned out into the database.

Re: [kwlug disc.] PHP maintaining sessions

Wish it was that easy :). It's commented out and defaulted to 0, so
that's not it. I've run into this problem previously and if I recall it
is some php or apache setting...I just don't recal what it was.

Re: [kwlug disc.] PHP maintaining sessions

Check for a line like the following in /etc/php.ini.

session.use_only_cookies = 1

My guess is that you would set this to 0. If you make changes, restart
(not reload) apache.

[kwlug disc.] PHP maintaining sessions

tid:51
I've just migrated to a new server and an upgraded version of php (now
on version 5). My server is maintaining sessions if the user has
cookies enabled, but if cookies are turned off by the user, the system
won't maintain a session. Real ugly ifyou're trying to log in :).

Anyway, it could be something ugly with upgrading from php4 to php5, but
I'd stake quite a bit that I've just got some dumb configuration
variable set wrong.

Any ideas on what would cause php to maintain sessions in cookies, but
not if cookies are turned off?

Thanks,
g.

Numerous people were reporting that their subscriptions were not getting
through. Subscription forms have been added to fix this issue.

Words words words

Oh my! Look at all the books in our library! Thanks to the secret elves (a.k.a. Michael, Richard, Kevin, and Charles) for entering in all of these.

Unfortunately there are some bugs:
- If non-administrators enter books the status is "on loan"
- The ISBN number is not required (and it should be)
- If administrators add books they have status "not published"
- Navigation of the library is not so good. You click on a book and can't get back the original list of books you had.
- I want to be able to check out and sign in things en masse.

More meta comments

Here are a couple of uneducated opinions about the website, before I forget:

0. I think the "Reviews" session should go. We should move the two reviews in there somewhere else (maybe to somebody's blog, maybe to an "archive" section as stories) and take out the link. I think the personal blog section is the right place to put reviews.

1. I wish we could enter in a lot less information for the library page. Ideally, we would enter in an ISBN number and our module would use the magic of Web 2.0 to find as much of the rest of the fields as it can. Even if this only worked for a limited set of publishers (O'Reilly, say) we would be better off.
