09:19:57 <iLobster> heh, creator of QIP2005 и QIP Infium (very popular in Russia alternative icq client) reveal what he is doing now: (google translation from russian to english)  http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=ru&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.inf.ru%2F2010%2F04%2F13%2Fobimp-i-bimoid-nemnogo-o-novom-proekte%2F%23more-580&sl=ru&tl=en
09:22:00 <iLobster> sorry, something wrong, link will be http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=ru&sl=ru&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.inf.ru%2F
09:45:23 <flo> iLobster: I tried to read the post quickly but I'm not sure of what's the author's main point
09:47:05 <flo> especially, how is his OBIMP protocol expected to be better than XMPP?
09:50:46 <iLobster> flo: i think the point was to show that he is still doing something on IM scene...frankly, IMHO, i doubt very much that the idea of IM for small (local) networks will be in demand, because of Jabber
09:51:26 <flo> the Bonjour protocol (which was originally from Apple but is now a part of XMPP) is defined for local networks
09:51:33 <flo> *designed
09:52:01 <flo> the only difference I've understood is that his protocol is binary, which is interesting only if the bandwidth is very expensive
09:56:44 <iLobster> i thought one of the key "features" of his project he calls is very easy installation of the server side - and it will be successful in small lans
09:57:27 <iLobster> *i think
10:00:41 <iLobster> In any case, this is just plans, nothing has been put up for review except 2 screenshots
10:39:52 * tymerkaev is now known as tymerkaev-afk
10:40:01 * tymerkaev-afk is now known as tymerkaev
10:47:36 <flo> oh, right, there's a server side to install
10:48:02 <flo> Bonjour works without the need for a server (no installation at all is easier than an easy server installation ;))

14:52:08 <deOmega> flo: WOW.. fast 
15:35:27 <-- flo has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.2pre)
15:36:05 <deOmega> flo:darn, flo left before i could respond
15:36:20 <deOmega> i was caught up
15:37:43 <deOmega> man, he works fast
16:30:24 <Amfi> deOmega: what does it highlight? Can you provide us any screens?
16:31:33 <deOmega> Amfi: I am sorry.. i was hoping   to get some answers
16:31:54 <deOmega> What  it is supposed to do is  highlight keywords in   multiuser chats
16:32:27 <deOmega> so, if you would like to be notified each time someone  mentions pizza in a room... you would  get that
16:32:39 <deOmega> I believe that  Audio comes  later
16:32:54 <deOmega> so you would also get an audible alert
16:33:06 <deOmega> customizable sound
16:35:34 <Amfi> Great thing! Especially on development IRC chats - no need to follow the technical muttering while waiting for the discussion about localization ;)
16:35:52 <deOmega> Exactly
16:36:36 <deOmega> Amfi: have you tried the addon where you  select a name and it adds it to the message like i just did yours??
16:37:04 <deOmega> actually, you would just  select any part of the message right now
16:37:10 <Amfi> nope. is it available somewhere on the add-ons page?
16:37:48 <deOmega> let me find teh link
16:40:09 <deOmega> ok, first one i found is this.. colorize... dunno if you have tried it.. looking for the other.
16:40:13 <deOmega>  try http://queze.net/goinfre/colorize-1.0.xpi , it makes private conversations use colors like in multi user chats.
16:41:49 <Amfi> I've read flo talking about this one... But it has no use for me ;)
16:42:54 <deOmega> Amfi: Fully understand
16:43:01 <deOmega> reply to nick is https://hg.instantbird.org/addons/repos/rev/9e463698651b
16:44:47 <Amfi> How do I use it?
16:45:20 <deOmega> click on this message and  say hi
16:46:16 <Amfi> I mean how to install the addon to the IB?
16:46:27 <deOmega> lol.. oh  rotflol
16:46:53 <deOmega> hmm
16:47:09 <deOmega> wrong link i  suppose.
16:47:54 <Amfi> oh, i thought you wanted me to build the addons from that code somehow :D
16:48:02 <deOmega> please know that i am just an end user that gives feedback
16:48:17 <deOmega> lol
16:48:28 <deOmega> I would not know where to tell you to start :)
16:51:03 <deOmega> ah
16:51:06 <deOmega> This should be it
16:51:08 <deOmega> http://log.bezut.info/instantbird/100419/#m110
16:51:47 <deOmega> ignore me   until i verify :(
16:54:56 <-- Amfi has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.2pre)
16:55:26 --> Amfi has joined #instantbird
16:56:09 <Amfi> OK, let's try it! :)
16:56:40 <deOmega> did u find it?
16:57:41 <Amfi> deOmega: yep :D
16:58:07 <deOmega> Amfi: awesome..  where did u find it.. can u give me teh nick?  i am all ove rteh place
16:58:16 <Amfi> you did it, in fact ;) http://queze.net/goinfre/replytonick-1.0.xpi
16:58:37 <Amfi> http://log.bezut.info/instantbird/100419/#m112
16:58:58 <deOmega> Amfi: thank you  :)
16:59:20 <deOmega> I will stre that so   that I can find it easily  :)
17:00:35 <deOmega> so..  I think they are gonna make it require doubleclick...that was  you have to make an attempt to invoke it
17:03:21 <Amfi> moreover, it should be limited to the nick only. When you want to look for a word mentioned by someone else in Google, you double-click it first.
17:03:54 <deOmega> good point
17:04:00 <deOmega> awesome point
17:05:00 <Amfi> Btw, try to double-click the first word in somebody's utterance ;)
17:06:34 <deOmega> Amfi: When i do that, i get the same thing...highlight of teh word.. but also teh nick comes in
17:07:03 <Amfi> and the seconds - i guess it's the wrong way to get highlighted
17:08:41 <Amfi> I guess it's this one: https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315. Mic or flo, could you confirm it once you're back?
17:08:44 <instantbot> Amfi: Bug 315 tri, --, ---, nobody, NEW, Bad copy when copying the nick of an action (/me) message
17:09:26 <deOmega> yeah,     i know he said they are aware of a few bugs

17:57:23 <deOmega> flo: hi..  that does not have a downloadable file, correct? the  link you gave me earlier regarding highlight.
18:00:51 <flo> the first link is the source code, the second link is installable ;)
18:01:16 <deOmega> flo: hmm
18:01:52 <deOmega> flo: oh, i knew that :)
18:01:59 <deOmega> i   regarded it as one link
18:10:44 <flo> do you understand how to use the pref window of this addon?
18:11:24 <deOmega> i will tell you in  3 mins
18:12:14 <-- deOmega has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.2pre)
18:12:49 --> deOmega has joined #instantbird
18:17:45 <deOmega> flo: I think I understand... as it is now,  it is the basic  highlight.. no  particular further designation....  and the advance part  would   be  for things  we would not want highlighted?  correct?
18:18:07 <deOmega> so in the top area I typed abc,www,ddd
18:18:16 <deOmega> and that woudl do it,  correct?
18:22:11 <deOmega> I like teh ease of entry very much
18:26:53 <flo> yes
18:27:13 <flo> the advanced area is a place where you can write a javascript function that is called each time a keyword is detected
18:27:19 <-- tymerkaev has quit (Connection reset by peer)
18:27:22 <flo> returning false cancel the match
18:27:33 <flo> true validate the highlighting
18:27:48 <flo> additionally, that function can do... anything
18:27:55 <deOmega> but I figure you will build on further  options,  as in the possibility of say  having one set of keywords being  RED and another set in green.. as well as later different sounds?
18:28:12 <flo> if you want to play a sound, you can just paste there the code to play a sound
18:28:42 <deOmega> no chance of teh optiion to  point user to a directory?
18:29:13 <flo> I'm not going to work on adding a UI with lots of options
18:29:34 <deOmega> ah...awesome
18:29:41 <flo> I make the addons when the demonstrate how add-on authors can interact with the existing code of instantbird
18:29:45 <flo> *they
18:30:00 <flo> people are free to modify/improve the addons I create
18:30:09 <flo> I provide the source code in a form easily reusable
18:31:17 <deOmega> You did this super fast though imo
18:31:25 <flo> I'd really like to see add-ons with lots of optional possibilities, but I don't think it's a good use of my time (I should rather develop Instantbird 0.2)
18:31:39 <deOmega> right
18:32:59 <deOmega> i hope    these folks do not mind, but this is some feedback
18:33:13 <deOmega> you weren't in the room
