16:04:30 --> deOmega has joined #instantbird
16:06:45 <deOmega> I am really looking forward to this on Monday.   So no control over  who has which color, but it  randomizes it so one can daily associate a color with an individual.... or  is it fixed, whereas teh same person  gets teh same  color each day? 
16:06:58 <deOmega> I will certainly give you feedback on Monday
16:07:26 <flo> it has never been random in multi-user chats
16:07:51 <flo> the color is generated from a hash of the nick name
16:08:03 <deOmega> ah....   AWESOME
16:08:08 <deOmega> AWESOME
16:09:06 <deOmega> testing now as a matter of fact.  :)
16:09:09 <flo> later there may be a way (in the add-on) to for some contacts to have a specific color instead of one chosen automatically 
16:10:12 <deOmega> THAT would be even more awesome.  What I may do on my end is change nick names of my contacts  to see what color is generated  for now
16:10:20 <deOmega> This is very good
16:10:43 <flo> yes
16:11:39 <flo> It will work, but adding a few characters of junk in each person's alias with the purpose of changing the color is not really the point of aliases.
16:12:06 <deOmega> I agree.  Makes sense
16:14:05 <flo> that doesn't mean you should not do it, of course :)
16:18:33 <deOmega> haha.. no, i have to
16:18:49 <deOmega> by teh way.  2 last questions
16:18:57 <deOmega> I ask  because sometimes i overlook teh obvious
16:19:09 <deOmega> No file transfer capability at the moent,  correct?
16:20:50 <deOmega> and 2.  When will there be a release with most of these where someone can download and use without getting the  daily updates...  I am inquiring on this last one for a user.
16:40:19 <deOmega> I have to leave, but    feedback i can give you  right now.. the colorize addon is working   VERY well.  Maybe i get those answers another time.
16:40:40 <deOmega> very well for ME
16:41:34 <-- deOmega has left #instantbird ()
16:52:25 <flo> deOmega: (if you check instantbot's log: ) no file transfer currently. Don't know yet when it will be implemented. 2. Please define what you mean by "with most of these". The 0.2b2 release is close to what we currently have in nightlies.

19:09:35 <Morian> instantbot: how come?
19:09:37 <instantbot> Morian: Sorry, I've no idea what 'how come' might be.

19:39:38 --> vicnet has joined #instantbird
19:43:37 <vicnet> hello everyone!
19:49:43 <Mic> hi vicnet
21:12:10 * flo looks forward to using Mozilla 1.9.3
21:12:27 <flo> CSS transitions, new add-on manager, Services.jsm, ... :)
21:14:35 <Mic> The new addon manager sounds promising
21:19:08 <flo> the 2 other things I listed too ;)
21:19:34 <Mic> I just read something on Services.jsm and it sounds good as well
21:20:13 <flo> cleanup :)
21:20:40 <flo> doing the exact same thing faster, with less memory, and a shorter code cannot be bad ;)
21:23:43 <Mic> Looking at this exmaple ( https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/CSS_transitions#Using_transition_events_to_animate_an_object ) I'm not sure whether I'm really going to like it ;)
21:23:49 <Mic> *example
21:26:17 <flo> Mic: bah. Doing in a line or 2 of CSS something that used to take tens of lines of JavaScript code (with lots of inattention bugs because the code was boring) is lovely, however complicated the CSS syntax may be :-P 
21:26:51 <flo> I'm looking forward to cleaning up the complicated mess of animation code of the buddy list
21:27:04 <Mic> Just two lines of css, that's exactly what makes me shiver
21:29:26 <Mic> It was bothering enough on the web when such a thing took half an hour to create as animated gif (and twice this time for its creator to upload it on their Geocities 'website' thereafter)
21:30:25 <flo> I'm interested in using it in the UI, not on the web
21:31:07 <flo> doing it in CSS also means that it's going to be trivial for an add-on to change just once CSS rule to remove the animation that bothers you ;)
21:31:15 <flo> *one
21:31:19 <Mic> It'S not you that I'm afraid about
21:31:25 <Mic> *It's
21:32:03 <flo> :)
21:37:01 <Mic> good night
21:37:06 <flo> good night :)
