09:26:32 <Mic> hello
09:45:15 --> GeekShadow has joined #instantbird
10:41:26 <flo> hi :)
11:48:45 <flo> doing a demonstration of something on a computer is always a bad idea :(
11:49:16 <flo> I just managed to convince my mother to try Instantbird on her own computer (an old laptop with Windows 2000).
11:49:33 <flo> the result is: it installed successfully, and crashes just after connecting accounts
11:49:41 <flo> totally unusable :(
11:51:37 <flo> of course, breakpad doesn't work out of the box on Win2000, for my debugging pleasure...

12:45:39 <iLobster> Greetings
12:48:42 <iLobster> that "win2000 crash" was because of win2000 OS or because of another specific hardware/software reasons?

13:11:40 <-- Apple has quit (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.86 [Firefox 3.6.3/20100401080539])
13:20:44 <flo> iLobster: I'd really like to know that
13:32:48 <Mic> Have you tried Trillian instead? It's free! (as in 'free beer';)
13:38:28 <flo> ah, thunderbird nightlies were broken too yesterday: http://ccgi.standard8.plus.com/blog/archives/339

17:45:54 <flo> it's nice when the actual code of an add-on is shorted than the license header in the file :)
17:46:35 <flo> *shorter
17:53:17 --> testib has joined #instantbird
17:59:30 <flo> the XPI: http://queze.net/goinfre/replytonick-1.0.xpi and the source code (https://hg.instantbird.org/addons/repos/rev/9e463698651b) of the add-on I just created :)
18:00:37 <flo> it's to easily prefix a message by the nick of the person to whom we are talking, when in a chat room. A single click on a message of the person in the conversation history will set the prefix in the input box
18:10:15 --> Mic has joined #instantbird
18:10:26 <Mic> Good evening
18:40:44 <Mic> flo: what privileges does code in the conversation content browser have?
18:54:04 <instantbot> New Instantbird (UI) bug 405 filed by leeraccount@yahoo.de.
18:54:06 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=405 enh, --, ---, nobody, NEW, Create links on channel names mentioned in IRC conversations

19:24:23 <iLobster> Good evening
19:26:51 <iLobster> hmm, do not understand...
19:27:15 <iLobster> "Copy the nick in the clicked message to the input box"
19:27:41 <iLobster> i'm clicking now on my messages - and nothing =(
20:13:48 <flo> iLobster: why do you want to talk to yourself?
20:14:33 <flo> Mic: very little
20:14:47 <flo> probably the same as in a web page in a web browser
20:15:25 <flo> I just read the bug. Yes, implementing the irc protocol handler is the right way to fix this
20:15:39 <flo> it's not hard to implement a protocol handler. We already have one for emoticons.
20:25:28 <iLobster> flo: well, sometimes it's not a bad idea, and that was the one of the options to test feature (at least, I thought so)
20:25:58 <flo> I explicitly prevented this from working in the code ;)
20:26:40 <flo> I sometimes click randomly inside the conversation history, and I wanted to reduce the "false positives"
