Hi,
It seems to me that there is a confusion between the multivariate function "zeta(s,1)=sum_{n>j>0} 1/(n^s*j)" and the Hurwitz zeta function "zeta(s,1)=sum_{n=0}^{\infty} 1/(n+1)^s=zeta(s)" also called the generalized zeta function.
We have: "zeta'(0)=-1/2*ln(2pi)" not to be confused with "zeta'(0,1)"...
Olivier.
