01:49:00 <clokep> What we laughing at?
01:49:43 <skeledrew> you seem skeptic re my statement
01:50:11 <clokep> I had no idea what your statement meant.
01:51:42 <skeledrew> just not in coding mode right now
01:52:04 <skeledrew> need to reroute and prioritize
01:55:22 <clokep> Ah, I see.
01:55:25 <clokep> Yeah had that issue too.
01:55:51 <skeledrew> that's why i didn't want to leave earlier...

08:52:18 <teresaejunior> is instantbird on debian borken? cant send any messages... either by pressing enter ctrl+enter alt+enter shift+enter tab... there's no send button
08:57:52 <teresaejunior> yes, it is broken, downloaded the .tar.bz2 and now it works. btw, in debian it doesn't show the tab bar and one isn't able to send any messages, bye!
08:58:01 <-- teresaejunior has left #instantbird ()
09:14:27 <Mic> hmm, I'd really liked to have asked some questions
09:16:26 <skeledrew> hmm. guess he thought everyone was AFK or something
09:17:16 <skeledrew> tab bar could do with a bubbler of sorts
09:17:37 <skeledrew> tired of having to drag my active convos to the left

10:17:31 <Mic> People coming here, doing partial bug reports is bad
10:18:06 <Mic> Maybe we should put something in the topic (even though it is already a bit overloaded imo)
10:18:19 <Mic> pointing to bugzilla or asking at least for further questions on the bug
10:18:52 <skeledrew> or maybe give instantbot a pounce command for when that guy returns...
10:32:00 <Mic> I guess most of them won't come back

11:28:02 * skeledrew thinks the mobile status type should be separate from the others so it can be combined with them

11:42:33 <-- tymerkaev has quit (Ping timeout)
12:33:16 --> tymerkaev has joined #instantbird
12:33:36 <Mic> Maybe ..
12:34:23 <Mic> .. if we have to chose between them (as it is at the moment) I'd rate the fact that someone is mobile higher than away/idle/..
12:34:31 <Mic> Right now "idle" takes precendence
13:10:31 <skeledrew> k
13:26:06 * skeledrew is ready to test the addon again...

13:46:11 <Mic> skeledrew, skeledrew-dev: this is the mystatus-extension?
13:46:34 <skeledrew> yes
13:46:54 <skeledrew> one part kinda works
13:46:58 <skeledrew> so far
13:47:35 <-- skeledrew-dev has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.2)
13:47:40 --> skeledrew-dev has joined #instantbird
13:48:03 <Mic> At the moment accounts connected later don't respect the global status setting (at least the OSCAR based protocols (AIM/ICQ) don't iirc) you might want to monitor connects of accounts and set the status+message explicitly
13:49:26 <-- skeledrew-dev has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.2)
13:49:53 --> kaie has joined #instantbird
13:51:04 <skeledrew> wow
13:51:07 <skeledrew> man...
13:51:41 <skeledrew> well i'll get this version to work first, then move to that one...
14:00:42 --> skeledrew-dev has joined #instantbird
14:05:36 <-- skeledrew-dev has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.2)
14:12:03 <skeledrew> IT WORKS!!!
14:12:05 <skeledrew> :d
14:14:42 --> skeledrew-dev has joined #instantbird
14:18:45 <Mic> Congratulations
14:19:04 <skeledrew> :)
14:21:35 <skeledrew> about those protos not respecting the global status, do you mean libp is unable to set them automatically on connect or that it's unable to set it at all with the global?
14:21:48 <skeledrew> Mic: ^
14:23:20 <Mic> on connect iirc
14:23:20 <skeledrew> cuz if it's the former, i can just observe connects and update. otherwise i'll def have to handle them individually
14:24:26 <skeledrew> so it'll work if i just call the status updater whenever an account connects?
14:28:23 <skeledrew> hold up. this sounds like an IB/libp bug. all my addon's supposed to do is save the status to a:c and restore it on startup...
14:30:10 <-- skeledrew-dev has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.2)
14:42:12 <Mic> I'm not sure.. I guess you need to try

15:15:47 <skeledrew> testing successful
15:16:05 <skeledrew> addon ready for uploading...
15:16:22 <deOmega> skeledrew: what addon is this?
15:17:12 <skeledrew> deOmega: mystatus. a small addon to persist status
15:17:41 <deOmega> hmm, persist status...   i will take it when u are ready
15:17:50 <deOmega> not  sure i understand though
15:17:51 <skeledrew> so the same status you close IB with, is the same it starts with again
15:17:59 <deOmega> ah!  GREAT
15:18:05 <skeledrew> :)
15:18:11 <deOmega> So statatus messages stay?
15:18:17 <skeledrew> yep
15:18:21 <deOmega> WOW!
15:18:26 <deOmega> GREAT  GREAT job
15:18:34 <skeledrew> thanks
15:18:49 <deOmega> I stopped putting status messages because... they are always gone  when irestart teh program
15:18:49 <skeledrew> gonna upload it now
15:18:57 <skeledrew> yeah
15:19:04 <skeledrew> it irritated me too
15:19:19 <deOmega> can u include in yoru description somehow... keeps yoru status message on restart?
15:19:29 <deOmega> something liek that?   I would understand right off
15:19:36 <skeledrew> hmm
15:19:42 <skeledrew> thanks for the tip
15:20:06 <deOmega> no, thank you!.. I am absolutely ready for that
15:20:55 <skeledrew> i'll change it now
15:21:17 <deOmega> thank you
15:21:40 --> skeledrew1 has joined #instantbird
15:23:57 <-- skeledrew has quit (Ping timeout)
15:25:17 * skeledrew1 is now known as skeledrew
15:25:21 <deOmega> Man,   i think  that the logging for IB now,  shows a or starts a new session whenever someone changes status
15:25:34 <deOmega> really hoping for a fix on that
15:27:55 <skeledrew> the time stamp needs to be fixed too
15:28:49 <deOmega> hmm,   i  do not have issues with teh time stamp, i do not think anyway 
15:30:37 <skeledrew> if you have a convo open and the time passes 12 midnight, the date isn't updated to the log. that's the bug
15:31:37 <deOmega> ah
15:48:53 <Mic> skeledrew: have you filed a bug report on this issue?
15:49:22 <Mic> We definitely don't have one on this (by last week?)
15:49:24 <skeledrew> i don't think so
15:49:30 <skeledrew> oh
15:49:30 <skeledrew> k
15:49:40 <skeledrew> i wanted to make sure it wasn't there
15:49:57 <skeledrew> i'll do it as soon as i make my addon available...
15:49:59 <Mic> I'm pretty sure that there's none if it hadn't been added in the last few days
15:50:08 <skeledrew> k
15:50:24 <skeledrew> i had discussed it some weeks back with clokep though
15:50:25 * Mic is glad we don't have half a million bugs in BIO yet
15:50:46 <skeledrew> :)

15:56:53 <deOmega> u know, when i subscribe to the addons rss feed.. would  really like when i click on the link on my google homepage,  it takes me to the list i subscribed to, as opposed to the   addons homepage
16:00:20 * skeledrew wonders why the internet's moving so slow...
16:12:06 <skeledrew> addon now ready for downloading and reviews :)

16:22:13 --> deOmega has joined #instantbird
16:22:37 <deOmega> Thank you thank you Thank you.  Works exactly as expected
16:22:52 <skeledrew> :D
16:23:02 <deOmega> This is a MUCH needed feature in IB.
16:23:32 <skeledrew> good to know i could be of service

16:27:17 <-- skeledrew-dev has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.2)
16:27:47 <deOmega> i wonder if after a while, prople will start discounting my reviews, as they show up so often :)
16:28:11 <skeledrew> nah. i don't think so :)
16:28:19 <deOmega> that should really be a core part of IB to be honest
16:28:24 <deOmega> what u just did
16:28:41 <skeledrew> yeah. i think so too
16:29:29 <skeledrew> maybe it'll become core by about 0.3's official release
16:29:45 <skeledrew> one can only hope :)
16:30:08 <deOmega> yep :)
16:30:36 <deOmega> next step.. system tray icon :)
16:30:51 <skeledrew> hmm
16:30:59 <-- Mic has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.3a1pre)
16:31:22 <deOmega> i have to say.. a lot of little things are being fixed that imo will make a huge difference
16:31:30 <skeledrew> i was thinking of that. only i'd change the icon to reflect the user's current status
16:31:59 <deOmega> Go for it :)..   i  would like to stop using  minimize to tray
16:32:02 <skeledrew> and if there're any unread messages
16:32:35 <deOmega> You can do that?
16:32:35 <skeledrew> no. not the whole thing. just the icon.
16:32:40 <deOmega> as an addon?
16:32:45 <skeledrew> don't think so
16:32:50 <skeledrew> not yet anyway
16:32:50 <deOmega> ok
16:33:15 <skeledrew> i don't think tray icons are supported in Mozzilla yet
16:33:17 <deOmega> well, without  minimize to tray, there is no system tray icon on windows
16:33:22 <skeledrew> *Mozilla
16:33:32 <skeledrew> yeah
16:33:39 <skeledrew> and firetray in Linux
16:33:59 <skeledrew> just have to use it till something better's found
16:34:09 <deOmega> ok
16:34:19 <skeledrew> ie they support it properly in Mozilla
16:34:51 --> hicham has joined #instantbird
16:37:12 <deOmega> skeledrew: Thank you again for your add-on.  it IS and WILL be appreciated.
16:37:37 <skeledrew> no problemo :)

16:48:23 <tymerkaev> Would you like to have aero-like screenshot?
16:48:37 <skeledrew> sure
16:48:45 <tymerkaev> ok
16:49:45 <tymerkaev> maybe "Your status has been saved!" instead?
16:50:07 <skeledrew> hmm
16:50:09 <skeledrew> k
16:50:33 <deOmega> true... ..I just noticed stored and my next question was.. stored where :)
16:50:42 <tymerkaev> k mean ?

16:53:26 <deOmega> I gather that most of you  guys in here are younger fellows...  the way you  work together, you can really make a wonderful impact  in this world if u carry this mentality it with you in all cases.    It seems as though you guys have a good grasp of ' every input matters'.
