00:00:18 <-- hicham has quit (Client exited)
00:11:25 --> rikki has joined #instantbird
00:32:15 <rikki> hmm would there be much use for being able to write extensions in lua instead of js?
00:33:33 <clokep> rikki: Only if you know lua. ;) But it'd hav eto be hacked into the mozilla platform.
00:33:43 <rikki> no
00:33:52 <rikki> there is a addon for firefox
00:34:25 <rikki> but the only copies i can find are a bit out dated
00:35:42 <clokep> Oh? I only knew of addons that allowed Python or Java support.
00:35:44 <clokep> That's cool. :)
00:35:58 <rikki> yea
00:46:23 <rikki> hmm the addon looks very unactive
00:55:19 <clokep> :-\
00:57:41 <rikki> and all it would have needed was a few updates to make it work proberbly
00:58:04 <rikki> can't find any firefox addons for another language
00:58:09 <rikki> which i could have changed to lua
00:59:47 <rikki> http://code.google.com/p/mshine/
00:59:50 <rikki> that is the project
01:01:15 <rikki> there is no files on the luaforge
01:01:45 <rikki> o well
01:06:06 <clokep> Well you could always take what they have, see if it works and go from there. :)
01:16:12 <rikki> umm
01:16:13 <rikki> can't
01:16:22 <rikki> its only lua files nothing that connects it to firefox
01:18:24 <rikki> yes yes yes
01:18:27 <rikki> its in svn!
01:18:41 <clokep> Oh, yeah. I saw that a while ago. Sorry i thought you realize that.
01:19:11 <rikki> lol nope
01:19:55 <rikki> damn google not implementing a download trunk button
01:20:35 <clokep> :) SVN. ;) Easy enough.
01:20:41 <rikki> yea
01:20:50 <rikki> well wasn't so easy till i got svn working in command prompt
01:21:49 <rikki> damn some1 didn't get make setup
01:21:52 <clokep> :)
01:22:31 <rikki> damn only setup for linux this source
01:23:02 <rikki> ehh install software time :)
01:23:42 <-- chrisccoulson has quit (Quit: Ex-Chat)
01:26:49 <clokep> Hahah.
01:57:42 --> tymerkaev has joined #instantbird
02:02:31 <rikki> ehh it should be compileable if u use make
02:02:44 <rikki> but ehh windows might be a bit hard to compile on for me atm
02:07:16 <clokep> Its not too terrible tos et up.
02:07:32 <rikki> yea but im not in the mood to do it
02:12:21 <clokep> Quite understandable!
02:12:52 <rikki> im also atm trying to get lua in my irc client
02:13:01 <rikki> which is working very well
02:13:36 <clokep> Instantbirds not your IRC client?! :P
02:13:46 <rikki> it is
02:13:58 <rikki> but i have to constantly switch to another to manage a network
02:14:06 <rikki> because of no raw commands
02:15:22 <rikki> being not able to send raw commands in instantbird is a real disapointment
02:15:40 <clokep> Right.
02:15:44 <rikki> and idk enough of the xul engine to be able to add it
02:15:52 <clokep> You'll be able to do it after I finish the rewrite of the protocol hopefully.
02:16:00 <rikki> yay
02:16:10 <rikki> also have you ever tried to oper up using instantbird?
02:16:26 <clokep> I've gotten it automatically a few times on freenode, but never tried to.
02:16:36 <rikki> yea its sorta impossible
02:16:47 <rikki> bc oper is a raw command lol
02:17:24 <clokep> I though you could do like /OPER blah blah.
02:17:34 <rikki> /oper nick pass
02:18:06 <rikki> i certainly can't do it lol
02:20:11 <clokep> Guess I was wrong. :( Sorry.
02:20:21 <rikki> yea :(
02:21:08 <-- Mic has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.3a1pre)
02:21:12 <rikki> also another reason why i use a different irc client is that i can make commands to do thinsg
02:21:52 <rikki> like /alias ope { raw OPER rikki pass }
02:22:04 <rikki> and from that point on wards i can just type /ope to oper up
02:24:48 <clokep> Right.
02:25:46 <rikki> does that make sense?
02:26:52 <clokep> Yes, I know what an alias is.
02:31:49 <clokep> You should file a bug to ask for aliases. ;)0
02:32:16 <rikki> nah, for who ever does it the'll have to implement a scripting system post what we already have
02:33:01 <rikki> it would be easier to implement something like imacros and then make it so it can get triggors like send textbox
02:33:30 <clokep> Not really.
02:33:33 <clokep> JS can parse JS.
02:33:38 <clokep> So you can just put a textbox. :)
02:33:42 <rikki> yea i know that
02:34:27 <clokep> :)
02:38:39 <clokep> Id id a little work with some stuff I never released that has some scripting elements but yeah...
02:39:00 <clokep> Really it'd be like porting Greasemonkey and givign it a good API.
02:39:13 <rikki> yea
02:40:12 <rikki> although it wouldn't give the right feel to the GUI from scripting that i would want
02:40:52 <clokep> You want just a window that you can type in? Well that'd just be GUI.
02:40:58 <rikki> then again i want to be able to write in a lot of languages, so im just wanting too much lol
02:41:17 <clokep> :)
02:41:35 <rikki> you should be able to see why now im writing an irc client
02:42:05 <clokep> I didn't realize you were writing one.
02:42:11 <rikki> i am
02:42:19 <rikki> http://sourceforge.net/p/devirc/home/
02:42:30 <clokep> Java, eh.
02:42:34 <rikki> yea
02:43:00 <rikki> i love the write once run anywhere feel of java
02:44:19 <rikki> but before you say java is the only lang there is a few native libraries
02:45:12 <clokep> Oh OK.
02:45:17 <clokep> I think Java is too verbose.
02:45:56 <rikki> i like it but there is quite a few annoyances in the JVM
02:46:11 <rikki> like i can't load a native library from jar
02:47:16 <clokep> Oh OK.
02:47:35 <clokep> What makes it for programmers in mind?
02:48:04 <rikki> when i get it more complete i am going to be making it so its sorta like mirc but supporting a lot more languages
02:48:22 <rikki> also there is a web browser
02:50:31 <clokep> Interesting. :)
02:50:40 <clokep> Are there any screenshots? Didn't see any on the wiki.
02:50:55 <rikki> its not yet in a state which i would want to show it off
02:51:09 <rikki> but your welcome to download the source and compile it
02:51:25 <clokep> I don't even have the JVM on this machine. :)
02:51:28 <clokep> But maybe.
02:52:44 <clokep> You seen the IRC rewrite for Instantbird I assume then? :P My ugly ugly code.
02:52:52 <rikki> nope
02:53:35 <clokep> bug 507 & the code: https://hg.instantbird.org/experiments/file/2ebff19b1738

02:54:53 <rikki> not many comments, but i've been worse lol
02:55:17 <clokep> Its a work in progress. ;)

10:13:15 <Mic> man, a two line patch and I'm making mistakes in it ;)
10:39:51 <flo> hello :)
10:40:05 <flo> Mic: are you playing with jsProto too?
10:40:22 <Mic> no, I just saw this bug mentioned somewhere and had a look at it
10:40:43 <flo> ok :)
10:41:02 <Mic> I've got enough another things on my want-to-to list ;)
10:41:02 <flo> I guess the more js-proto players we have, the more fun there will be ;)
10:41:15 <Mic> *other
10:50:06 <flo> I should probably take care of adding a preference for the default size of the places.sqlite file
10:51:34 <-- skeledrew has quit (Ping timeout)
10:51:55 <Mic> Sorry, I admit it might be fun working with some others on jsProtocols but I think I don't have time for that
10:52:12 <flo> I wasn't asking you to do anything ;)
10:52:57 <flo> It's not really fully usable yet anyway ;)
10:57:26 --> skeledrew has joined #instantbird
11:02:36 --> Andrey has joined #instantbird
11:08:09 --> tymerkaev has joined #instantbird
11:29:27 <Mic> hmm, we don't have a canAddBuddies flag on protocols/accounts, do we?
11:29:58 <Mic> Bad example is Facebook again: you can add buddies to the list, with no real effect ofcourse (they appear but aren't functional ofcourse)
11:31:27 <Mic> flo: maybe we should have a buddy-added animation by the way. If the buddy you added is offline and offline buddies are hidden at the moment, then there's no indication that the buddy really has been added
11:31:47 <Mic> Maybe we could show it for a moment and then do something like sign-off animation
11:32:43 <Mic> *like the
11:58:05 <-- tymerkaev has quit (Ping timeout)
12:08:20 <flo> Mic: I agree that we need to provide feedback in some way that the buddy has really been added
12:08:34 <flo> showing it in the buddy list for a few seconds may be a bit misleading though :-/
12:09:39 <flo> At some point, I thought we should not close the add buddy dialog until we have a confirmation from the server that the buddy has really been added to the server-side list, and show that confirmation in the dialog, or an error message.
12:10:05 <flo> of course libpurple doesn't provide a way to have that confirmation, so the idea more or less died
12:42:30 <-- Ornthalas has quit (Ping timeout)
12:47:58 --> Ornthalas has joined #instantbird
12:48:28 --> tymerkaev has joined #instantbird
12:58:02 <Ornthalas> flo, you're here ?
12:58:17 <flo> yes
12:58:29 <Ornthalas> i couldn't update my IB
12:58:37 <Ornthalas> s i redownloaded the windows zip
12:58:41 <Ornthalas> (the installer fails)
12:58:48 <Ornthalas> qui IB
12:58:54 <Ornthalas> empty the progfiles/IB folder
12:59:00 <Ornthalas> unzip the files
12:59:08 <Ornthalas> try to copy them in py progfiles/ib folder
12:59:10 <Ornthalas> this fails
12:59:38 <Ornthalas> it tells me c:/progfiles/ib/accessiblemarshal.dll : access denied
12:59:47 <Ornthalas> you have an idea why ?
13:00:40 <flo> the file is probably locked/in use
13:01:25 <Ornthalas> yes, but by what ?
13:01:31 <Ornthalas> the IB folder is empty
13:01:33 <Ornthalas> files deleted
13:01:46 <flo> the file doesn't exist?
13:01:52 <flo> have you tried rebooting windows?
13:01:57 <Ornthalas> nope
13:01:59 <Ornthalas> don't wanna
13:02:29 <Ornthalas> in process explorer, if i search for handle or dll with substring Accessible, no results are found
13:04:36 <Ornthalas> mmh strange
13:04:41 <Ornthalas> i can'tt copy to anywhere else
13:04:43 <flo> if you don't want to reboot, maybe you can reformat the partition to explain windows that it should not refuse to write in an empty folder ;)
13:06:24 <Ornthalas> found why
13:06:27 <Ornthalas> grrrrr
13:06:55 <Ornthalas> it's supercopier that's not able to ask permission to copy with admin rights
13:07:28 <Ornthalas> so it tries to copy anyway with my users' and fails miserably with its access denied
13:07:38 <Ornthalas> stupid
13:08:38 <Ornthalas> since Aug 16 20:28:30 2009, no update has been made on their svn
13:08:40 <Ornthalas> too bad

14:03:18 <flo> clokep: hey :)
14:13:32 <-- Ornthalas has quit (Quit: KTHXBYE)
14:13:54 * flo looks at http://www.trillian.im/learn/tour-mac.html and is puzzled to see the cool features they insist on are "New and Simplified Service Icons" "Change Connection Status All At Once" "Update Your Status Message" or "Typing Notifications"
14:14:26 <flo> and the download for mac is a .zip :-S
14:15:29 <-- skeledrew has quit (Ping timeout)
14:16:35 <clokep> I really dislike Trillian. :(
14:16:52 <clokep> Just throwing that out there.
14:17:33 <flo> I've used it for a long time
14:17:37 <flo> it was my very first IM client
14:17:44 <flo> I remember some of the bugs :-D.
14:18:12 <flo> like when typing ], the characters after it were smaller for no apparent reason
14:18:17 <clokep> Hahah.
14:18:43 <clokep> I just disliked the way it looked and all. I used AOL then AIM then AIM+YIM+MSN then Pidgin. :)
14:18:46 <clokep> Now Instantbird+Skype.
14:23:44 <flo> "At your option, you may request that Cerulean Studios store certain third-party network account information (encrypted usernames and passwords) on its servers" [...] "This encrypted information is only accessible by you and cannot be read by third parties, including Cerulean Studios employees.

14:23:52 <flo> that page gives a 404 error :-P
14:24:00 --> skeledrew has joined #instantbird
14:24:26 <clokep> Doesn't sound very secure to me. :)
14:25:17 <flo> maybe the security was not found ;)

14:31:47 <flo> "Hide Unused Connection Icons   [New in Trillian Astra]
14:31:47 <flo> Keep your connection icons tidy with the new ability to hide icons that are not bound to any connections."
14:32:04 <flo> This looks great, with the new version you don't have to see in your buddy list an icon for every protocol you don't use! :)

15:51:12 <Mic> I used AIM then Trillian and now Instantbird+Skype
15:51:21 <Mic> I never liked neither Pidgin nor Kopete
15:51:37 <Mic> Never tried Miranda
15:52:01 <clokep> Oh, I used Kopete for a little bit too when i was running Linux.
16:03:36 <Mic> Remembering Trillian I have to agree that managing the status on a per-account level is a mess
16:10:03 <Mic> btw I changed your patch on bug 519, I guess now that you forked jsProtoHelper you can include it yourself

17:57:44 <Mic> flo: is it likely to get the patch for "bug 596759 - Selecting a tab should focus its content " included in the framework one day?
17:59:39 <flo> Mic: probably not for Mozilla 2.0
18:00:03 <flo> for the next version, sure :)
18:00:21 <flo> it's reviewed, we just need to push it to mozilla-central once it's open again for non-firefox4-blockers
18:01:19 <Mic> That's why I asked, I'm not familiar with the open/closed for whatsoever policies for mozilla-central
18:01:44 <flo> they decide of a new policy almost every week :-P
18:01:52 <flo> so that "people focus on blockers"
18:02:39 <flo> (well, it doesn't really change that often)
18:03:26 <Mic> Something else: we discussed the keyboard shortcuts once and you said you'd like to change the way how it's done
18:04:04 <flo> hmm. That was about the keys to change tabs, right?
18:04:08 <Mic> That is how and when menus(.xul?).inc is included
18:04:15 <flo> ah!
18:04:27 <flo> right, we also need to change that someday :)
18:04:27 <Mic> No, not quite. I'm talking about the account manager shortcut and the like
18:04:51 <Mic> I have a set of accesskey related bugs lying around and wanted to fix them in one go
18:05:27 <flo> the change I was talking about one matters for add-on developers that want to add a menu item that works on all windows on Mac
18:05:33 <flo> s/one/only/
18:05:33 <Mic> Namely .. bug 496, bug 418 and bug 441 + some cleanup

18:06:05 <Mic> funny, I wanted to write bug 296 and hit another by accident

18:06:31 <flo> 496 was the one I was interested in when I said something about tabs ;)
18:07:11 <Mic> well, this one too maybe? Even though it might need a bit different treatment than the others
18:10:59 * flo wonders if it's a good time to start tagging bugs with [0.3-blocking] [0.3-wanted] [0.3-nice-to-have] or if it's too soon
18:12:07 <clokep> It might be good to tag some bugs that they'll be in 0.3a1 ;)
18:12:18 <clokep> Like when we mark things fixed...
18:12:28 <flo> that's the target milesone field
18:12:53 <clokep> Yes I know.
18:13:54 <clokep> Well if there are things that are definitely needed for 0.3, probably wouldn't be too early to mark it as such.
18:14:36 <Mic> And file bugs for things that are wanted/needed but not there yet
18:14:43 <clokep> :)
18:14:54 <Mic> So that there's an overview what's to be done
18:15:04 <clokep> And changes 0.2-wanted to 0.3-wanted maybe?
18:15:12 <clokep> s/changes/change/
18:15:20 <Mic> There's mode #ifdefs than content in menu.xul.inc :(
18:18:00 <-- Mic has left #instantbird ()
18:18:43 --> Mic has joined #instantbird
18:25:39 <flo> I don't think I would tag "0.3-wanted" any of the remaining 0.2-wanted :-S
18:26:15 <flo> ah, 117 is fixed
18:27:26 <clokep> Fixing is good! :)
18:28:16 <instantbot> florian@instantbird.org set the Resolution field on bug 117 to FIXED.

19:17:03 <Mic> clokep: have you created a flat environment recently (i.e. you unpacked omni.jar)?
19:18:01 <clokep> Mic: Yes I have one right now.
19:18:10 <clokep> (On my other computer.)
19:18:14 <Mic> I fail to find and clear the cache as it seems :S Omni.jar is gone, I changed a few lines but these changes have no effect

21:19:32 * flo is looking at sourceforge and wondering if they have any tools that we may want to use without having to setup them on our own servers
21:21:52 <clokep> Like what sort of thing?
21:25:58 <flo> I'm mostly interested in seeing if we can put our releases (not the nightlies) on their network or mirroirs
21:26:57 <flo> *mirrors
21:33:57 --> DGMurdockIII has joined #instantbird
21:37:07 --> flo1 has joined #instantbird
21:38:10 <flo1> they have ideaTorrent: https://sourceforge.net/apps/ideatorrent/instantbird/
21:38:46 <-- flo has quit (Ping timeout)
21:39:16 <clokep> Sorry I disappeared, was working on a computer vision project.
21:39:38 <clokep> is this just to take some of the load off your servers?
21:40:28 <flo1> the mirrors?
21:40:32 <flo1> or the ideaTorrent?
21:44:50 <clokep> Both?
21:46:41 <flo1> the mirrors, it's for both the load (we don't have the bandwidth to server more than 50,000 downloads per day) and the speed (our servers are in France, and we've been told several time that when downloading from other countries the transfer can be very slow)
21:47:33 <clokep> Downloading from all 3 locations I've tried in the US have worked well. :)
21:48:19 <flo1> if you download instantbird from France, you get it at the maximum speed of your DSL connection (we have 100Mbps on the server, which is more or equals to all personal connection plans currently available)
21:49:31 <clokep> 100 Mbps? Damn. My connection here maxes out at like 5 down, my one at home is like 12 or so. (And that one is considered one of the top 3 ISPs in the country.)
21:50:23 <flo1> I've 512k here ;)
21:50:48 <clokep> Ouch. :(
21:51:07 <flo1> in most cities you have between 5 and 20Mbps for DSL access
21:51:16 <clokep> But I guess 100 Mbps for a server isn't super fast.
21:51:33 <flo1> but in some places there are already a few (lucky) people with 100Mbps connections (fiber based) for about the same price as DSL
21:51:34 <DGMurdockIII> i think idea torrent could be put on the website itself or use pligg
21:52:12 <clokep> Fiber in the US isn't much faster than cable services -- they throttle it.
21:52:16 <flo1> We have 2 servers with 100Mbps on each
21:52:28 <flo1> I also have 100Mbps in my office, but the 80 port is not opened (yet?)
21:53:51 <clokep> I do like the idea torrent thing though. :) If we even have enough users for it.
21:54:37 <flo1> the problem with using sourceforge is... the ads
21:54:40 <flo1> http://downloads.sourceforge.net/instantbird/instantbird-0.2.src.tgz
21:54:58 <flo1> (I've uploaded a single file to try it)
21:55:40 <clokep> I block ads on a lot of sites, sourceforge being one that isn't white listed. :)
21:56:01 <flo1> you still see their page even if you don't see the ads
21:56:38 <clokep> True. :-\ I feel like some programs that I've downloaded you don't even though it uses their mirrors?
21:58:23 <flo1> I don't think we can do better than OVH for the speed of the mirror network
21:58:33 <flo1> they put the file right in the servers of my ISP...
22:01:25 <flo1> when downloading with wget I get the file directly, not the annoying HTML page that says it's going to start
22:11:32 <clokep> :) That's sweet.

22:24:52 <DGMurdockIII> the ads on sourceforge arnt that bad
22:26:55 <DGMurdockIII> i think there are alot more people using instantbird than you may think but besids that have you seen google moderator
22:27:26 <DGMurdockIII> http://www.google.com/moderator/#0
22:27:40 <flo1> DGMurdockIII: we have statistics from the update requests, so we have a relatively good idea of how many users we have
22:27:59 <clokep1> DGMurdockIII: i meant people that would be involved in giving feedback.
22:28:01 <flo1> well, we can't count people using it on intranets with private XMPP or IRC servers of course...
22:28:41 <DGMurdockIII> what about people who dont update
22:30:29 <flo1> we know nothing about people who have unchecked "Instantbird" below "Automatically check for updates to:" in the "Update" tab of the "Advanced" prefpane.
22:30:48 <flo1> if they don't update but still check for updates, they are counted
22:30:54 <DGMurdockIII> ok
22:32:31 <DGMurdockIII> have you heard of google moderator before it like ideatorrent
22:32:39 <flo1> no, I didn't know it
22:43:39 <flo1> Good night
22:44:49 <clokep1> 'night.
