14:19 jeff does anyone have an example of a circumstance where you might use name keywords?
14:20 jeff is it mostly for throwing in first name variations like adding "Nick" for "Nicholas" and/or for adding a keyword of "wooster" for Mr Worcester?
14:20 jeff release notes and commit message aren't obvious, but I feel like I'm missing a common use case.

15:15 jihpringle jeff: bookclub
15:16 jihpringle if you want to easily be able to identify everyone in your library's bookclub so you can retrieve their accounts for placing holds
15:16 jihpringle not sure if anyone actually does it, but that's one potential scenario we came up with
15:25 csharp_ first rule of bookclub: do not talk about bookclub - also name keywords
15:27 Dyrcona Heh.
16:02 jeff "Patron called to report that they are receiving hold pickup notifications for holds that they don't remember placing. Approximately one per month. Patron name is Imnotin Urbookclubb."
16:04 mmorgan jeff: Those holds must be for the patron's sibling: Imin Urbookclubb

16:10 csharp_ my wife and I were laughing at the names of 30 Rock characters: Carol Burnett, Wesley Snipes, Paul L'astname, Hazel Wassername, Jeffery Weinerslav, etc.
16:11 csharp_ totally need to add those to concerto patrons
16:11 berick csharp_: where do those names appear on 30 rock?
16:11 csharp_ mostly Liz's boyfriends
16:11 csharp_ also Floyd DeBarber
16:12 * mmorgan was puzzled also, before realizing it's 30 Rock, not 3rd Rock :)
16:12 berick crazy, i missed most of those
16:12 csharp_ Paul L'astname is Jenna's cross-dressing love interest
16:12 csharp_ and Dr. Spaceman of course
16:13 berick yeah, Spaceman's great
16:13 berick pretty sure Tracy calls him Space-Man at some point
16:13 csharp_ I laugh every time I see him on screen, even before he speaks
16:13 csharp_ right, that's how he's introduced and everyone thinks Tracy made him up
16:14 rhamby jeff: I've had a public school library put home room teacher's name in there
16:14 csharp_ https://en.wikipedia.org/wik‚Äči/List_of_30_Rock_characters
16:16 jeff rhamby: ah, yep.
16:17 jeff we have used a stat cat in the past for that, which of course isn't searchable but has the benefit of being semi-controlled (useful for classroom overdue reports).
16:18 jeff when auto-loading student records from the SIS, we can throw it in an address, which then gives us the ability to search AND report, but isn't very practical for staff to manually update (when we're not auto-loading)
16:28 jeff though it would be slightly more practical if we auto-created empty homeroom addresses... hrm.
16:28 jeff (something to think about later)
