01:57:50 <clokep> Updated Auto-Link to version 0.4. Now with an options pane.  I'm sure it has some bugs (actually I know of a few), but I figured I should get it up since it has a preference pane. :)

12:02:01 <Mic> clokep_work: some thoughts and remakrs on Auto Link: on Linux the marks of the checkboxes are placed below the protocol icon (and in somecases you can't tell whether it is check or not)
12:02:16 <Mic> I think I filed a similiar bug for the Status menu of the buddy list on Bugzilla
12:02:38 <Mic> Second: you can't remove rules
12:02:43 <clokep_work> Below? Hmm...interesting.
12:02:48 <clokep_work> Ah, I knew I forgot something. :)
12:02:56 <clokep_work> I almost forgot adding rules haha.
12:03:21 <clokep_work> Well its at least more customizable then it /was/. ;)
12:03:30 * clokep_work got very distracted by a bug when you make a regexp too long.
12:03:42 <clokep_work> Thanks though.
12:03:57 <clokep_work> Wait, the checkboxes are /below/ the protocol icons in the drop downs?
12:04:10 <Mic> exactly
12:04:42 <clokep_work> On windows if you put both the icons are just ignored.

12:06:00 <clokep_work> Wait, behind or below?
12:06:24 <clokep_work> Ah, OK. That makes more sense. :)
12:07:16 <Mic> in z-order
12:08:07 <clokep_work> Got it.
12:08:08 <instantbot> New Instantbird (UI) bug 460 filed by tymerkaev@gmail.com.
12:08:12 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=460 min, --, 0.3a1, nobody, UNCO, Short some window titles to match in the titlebar
12:10:22 <clokep_work> Thanks Mic, I'll look at that this weekend (and add the 7 lines of code or whatever to let you remove filters. :P)
12:14:07 <Mic> What about adding extending the context menu of the links that you create?
12:14:20 <Mic> Something like "Don't apply in this conversation"?
12:14:48 <Mic> (not as context menu item but as general idea)
12:15:15 <Mic> I want to add this to the content preview extension
12:15:36 <Mic> So people can easily disable previews from a conversation
12:15:47 <clokep_work> Forever w/ that person or only temporarily?
12:16:00 <clokep_work> Temporarily is easy since you just remove the observer.
12:16:21 <Mic> My idea was about editing the rule by such an action
12:16:53 <clokep_work> OK, so forever. :)
12:16:54 <Mic> even more advanced: select a piece of text and let the user create a rule based on it
12:17:00 <clokep_work> Should be possible.
12:17:16 <clokep_work> That would be nice. :)
12:17:32 <Mic> And we're heading into absolute context menu clutter here :P
12:17:41 <clokep_work> Hahah, yes...we are.
12:18:54 <Mic> Something else I'd like to try: creating something like the accelerator popup in IE8+
12:19:17 <Mic> A small icon that displays that some actions are possible somewhere
12:19:38 <Mic> Could be possible using a panel, even though it might need some restyling to get rid of the borders
12:21:28 <clokep_work> That shouldn't be too hard though.
12:22:11 <clokep_work> A small icon after your stuff that's added that pops up a panel?
12:22:18 <clokep_work> With things that can be done.
12:22:58 <Mic> I've tried it and the problem was to make it look decent ..
12:23:06 <Mic> I couldn't get rid of the borders somehow
12:23:25 <Mic> let's see
12:24:08 <clokep_work> Hmmm...My help button has a panel. ;) I don't remember if it had panels or not.
12:24:13 <Mic> (it didn't have any functionality though)
12:26:02 <clokep_work> True.
12:29:26 * clokep_work just added many issues to his tracker.
13:07:32 <skeledrew> Mic: "Could be possible using a panel, even though it might need some restyling to get rid of the borders" i got a borderless window for all your needs ;)
13:07:56 <-- Mic has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.3a1pre)
13:08:05 <skeledrew> lolz
13:41:14 --> Mic has joined #instantbird
13:43:39 <Mic> skeledrew: I think a panel might be more practical ;)
13:46:46 <Mic> Even: thanks for the review
13:54:17 <skeledrew> a floating panel?
13:54:20 <skeledrew> hmm
13:55:35 <skeledrew> one that follows your mouse arounf :)
13:55:44 <skeledrew> *around
13:56:02 <clokep_work> I hope not.
13:56:11 <skeledrew> heh
13:56:14 <clokep_work> I really like panels though, I think they're a good use of UI that doesn't need to always be there.
13:56:15 <skeledrew> why not?
13:56:17 <clokep_work> Clears up context menus.
13:56:27 <skeledrew> k
13:56:40 <clokep_work> Nothing should ever follow the mouse around, don't you remember cursor tails from the 90s ont he web? ;)
13:56:55 * skeledrew sighs
13:57:02 <skeledrew> those were the days...
13:57:43 <skeledrew> i wonder what became of them
13:57:50 <clokep_work> Mic: Wow the overrides are really simple.
13:58:02 <clokep_work> skeledrew: Most of the software had a lot of spyware in it.
13:58:13 <skeledrew> ahh
13:58:33 <Mic> How do you (or don't you) click a panel that follows your mouse?
13:58:59 <Mic> Indeed, I created two for german social networks that use a xmpp based chat
13:59:08 <skeledrew> it stops when you move the pointer towards it
13:59:11 <skeledrew> :)
13:59:44 <Mic> (they distinguish between a pupil and students/all others network and use separate server names for that)
14:00:06 --> kaie has joined #instantbird
14:00:06 <Mic> I haven't tried to derive one from anything but xmpp 
14:00:08 <clokep_work> I like distinguishing. :) That's awesome though.
14:00:12 <skeledrew> it would work like FF's CoolPreviews
14:00:26 <clokep_work> I'm not sure any other protocol is really used a lot. I guess Oscar kind of.
14:01:12 <clokep_work> They going to be added to Instantbird? ;)
14:01:21 <clokep_work> (Or perhaps that German translated version...)
14:01:22 <Mic> I'll provide them as extensions
14:02:07 <Mic> I only need to create appropriate icons first - so far I'm using the original icons and I guess I'm not allowed to ;)
14:03:50 <clokep_work> Hahah, most likely not. :) If they're somewhat popular sites then most likely some one has icons that are "the same" licensed under CC.
14:03:51 <Mic> And I don't want to draw the attentions of one of these web companies .. they're pretty trigger-happy imo
14:04:12 <Mic> (with respect to violations of copy-whatso-ever-rights)
14:06:25 <clokep_work> Got it.
14:06:34 <clokep_work> Hmm...apparently Google Wave has a protocol based on XMPP.
14:11:40 <Mic> Maybe we should collect a list of social networks which use xmpp and create a set of override protocols
14:12:35 <clokep_work> Mic: I was just thinking that... :)
14:12:38 <Mic> Even if it is possible to use them as xmpp accounts directly it is much nicer for users to actually have a protocol that has the default server set correctly
14:12:54 <Mic> and especially a nice icon in the account manager ;)
14:13:06 <clokep_work> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_social_networking_websites used this article for class this semester...hmm...
14:13:15 <clokep_work> (Its scary long.)
14:13:43 <clokep_work> Also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_instant_messaging_clients#Multiprotocol_clients might be usedful in seeing what others support.
14:30:53 <Mic> let's see
14:31:02 <Mic> I#ll be back later
14:31:55 <clokep_work> OK. Maybe I'll start a wiki page if I have some down time?

16:26:04 <clokep_work> kaie: I haven't been on today, but if its both its probably a server issue. :)
16:26:16 <kaie> yes, absolutely
16:26:40 <clokep_work> You seem to be having bad luck. ;)

17:12:04 <Mic> clokep_work: did you do an override for LiveJournal?
17:13:49 <clokep_work> Did I actually make it? No. Was going to do it when I got home.
17:14:16 <clokep_work> Just got the ifnormation and then was doing some paperowrk.
17:14:35 <clokep_work> Documentation is a pain. :)
17:16:26 <clokep_work> I have a LJ account (from like 10 years ago. :P But I think its still active), so wouldn't be an issue for me to test.
17:19:47 <clokep_work> Mic: This might interest? http://www.iconspedia.com/pack/social-me-1467/
17:20:46 <clokep_work> (More of the site, not that specific one...although ti has a LJ icon.)
17:22:05 <clokep_work> Although it has some funky styling to it haha.

17:43:36 <Mic> "13:56:17 <clokep_work> Clears up context menus."
17:43:49 <Mic> Not exactly
17:44:00 <Mic> Panels start where the menu fails imo
17:44:29 <Mic> You can put arbitrary UI elements onto a panel while you can only use menuitems in menus
17:46:36 <clokep_work> I think it all depends on what you use it for.
17:54:09 <clokep_work> But I agree that's a big benefit -- that you can put anything on them.
17:56:17 <Mic> The mdc search is broken since a few days
17:59:39 --> micahg has joined #instantbird
18:00:57 <clokep_work> Its frustrating, thankfully if you google "mdc " + searchTerms, it'll almost always offer mdc as the first hit.
18:02:12 <Mic> google for
18:02:28 <Mic> site:developer.mozilla.org <here are your search terms>
18:03:04 --> skeledrew has joined #instantbird
18:03:18 <clokep_work> That works too.
18:03:25 <clokep_work> mdc is just shorter. ;)

19:25:15 <clokep> Mic: Yeah, I just didn't have time to rewrite it after it was a menu, I changed it w/ regex...
19:25:22 <clokep> Will be a table. :)
19:25:39 <clokep> Probably will also be something you can keep up.
19:27:44 <clokep> That uuid isn't for LJ, right?
19:28:34 <Mic> no
19:35:06 <clokep> Did you end up just putting it in an extension's components folder?
19:36:55 <Mic> I made an extension of it
19:37:36 <clokep> OK. It probably helps when I don't misspell file names. :)
20:01:41 <Mic> :D
20:02:11 <Mic> I created a nice looking logo for the social network ..
20:02:35 <Mic> Unfortunately it is only a seven instead of eight-pointed star ;)

21:27:51 <clokep>  Cool. :)
21:27:51 <Mic> I admit that I arbitrarily set the version number to 2.0
21:28:00 <Mic> Just looks better for social networks :P
21:28:11 <clokep> I was wondering about that.
21:29:08 <Mic> Maybe I should drop the "0." of the version number on Buddy Status as well ;)
21:29:16 <clokep> Haha.

21:36:12 <clokep> Mic:
21:36:25 <clokep> That probably only works for 0.3a1pre since it needs js-proto branch, no?
21:36:33 <Mic> no
21:36:35 <clokep> Or were the overrides always JavaScript?
21:36:55 <Mic> Facebook chat was working like this all the time
21:37:00 <Mic> well, at least for month now
21:37:19 <clokep> Ah OK. I didn't realize it was always a JS component.

21:41:41 <clokep> Oh OK.
21:41:57 * clokep can't reorder his accounts, wants confirmation.
21:41:59 <Mic> I'm running the latest nightly at another place
21:42:22 <clokep> LJ Talk: https://addons.instantbird.org/en-US/instantbird/addon/255
21:42:23 <Mic> well, that's exactly why I don't run the latest nightlies here :P
21:42:26 <clokep> :)
21:42:45 <clokep> Yeah I have a lot broken right now.
21:42:52 <Mic> No, Instantbird nightlies are better than other software's release versions ..
21:43:15 <clokep> Ah, didn't mean with Instantbird. I mean with Firefox and Thunderbird. ::)
21:43:59 <Mic> I was only qualifying my last statement
21:46:08 <clokep> And I was clarifying mine. :)
21:46:22 <clokep> But I agree, Instantbird's are wayyyyy better then most other nightly/beta software I've used.
21:46:27 <clokep> Even some release software.
