05:13:14 <I_stephen> Hi there
05:13:21 <I_stephen> How do I view my history of a conversation?
05:22:04 <Mook> Hmm, right click on the tab, I think?
05:26:31 <I_stephen> ok thanks
05:27:34 <I_stephen> how do I clear my history?
05:29:12 <Mook> Hrm. I have no idea. (I've... never attempted to.)
05:29:40 <Mook> I assume actually deleting the files would work, but that basically involves going into your profile and looking for it
05:32:01 <I_stephen> ah ok
05:32:08 <-- EionRobb has quit (Quit: Leaving.)
05:32:12 <I_stephen> so it has to be done by hand
05:32:15 <Mook> That's, umm, C:\Users\<whatever>\AppData\Roaming\Instantbird\Profiles\<something>.default\logs somewhere, I think
05:32:16 <Mook> yeah
05:32:27 <Mook> ... unless somebody else has better ideas, anyway
05:32:47 <I_stephen> seems that Instantbird is still in it's early stages, but it's still a great program
05:32:48 * Mook is actually trying to build instantbird due to a lack of appropriate binaries... sigh.
05:40:59 <I_stephen> I love instantbird, it is so accessible. I'm using it in place of miranda.
05:41:55 <I_stephen> btw, mook, where are you from?
05:42:05 <I_stephen> are you the french guy?
05:42:12 <Mook> I_stephen: no, that's flo
05:42:17 <I_stephen> ok
05:42:20 <Mook> I just sort of hang around and don't do very much
05:42:31 <I_stephen> you're still a great help though
05:42:36 <I_stephen> where do you live?
05:42:41 <I_stephen> just curious
05:42:44 <Mook> North America.
05:42:46 <I_stephen> ok
05:43:01 <I_stephen> get a lot of earthquakes over there?
05:43:24 <I_stephen> hehe
05:43:25 <Mook> No, not really. Overdue, really.
05:43:32 <Mook> You're... Aussie?
05:43:41 <I_stephen> Yep
05:43:58 <I_stephen> how could you tell?
05:44:25 <Mook> I hovered over your name in the user list to get the /whois info? :)
05:44:43 <Mook> (and then went to on.net to figure out where they operate)
05:44:43 <I_stephen> I know, but there's no .au in the domain
05:44:49 <I_stephen> ah.
05:45:25 <I_stephen> Yep internode is fantastic, I've been with them for 7 years now
05:45:37 <I_stephen> and you know the best thing of all about them?
05:46:44 <I_stephen> when you ring them up, you can understand what the person on the othe rend is saying
05:46:49 <I_stephen> other end rather
05:47:28 <Mook> Yeah, I think my ISP mostly has techs on the other coast (of the continent); pretty decent, nice people too.
05:47:55 <I_stephen> you mean they're Philipino?
05:48:17 <Mook> Err, no, I mean, they're in east coast North America (I'm over on the west end)
05:48:21 <I_stephen> ah ok. heheh
05:48:42 <I_stephen> your isps call centre is a rare breed
05:49:08 <Mook> also, I think I've had more power outages than my internet connection going down :D
05:49:15 <-- Suiseiseki has quit (Ping timeout)
05:50:00 <I_stephen> all, or should I say 99.999999% of our big isps over here use offshore call centres
05:50:40 <Mook> Well... I'm not on a big ISP; that's one of the reasons.
05:51:55 <I_stephen> one particular ISP in australia, "Dodo", keeps cold calling me with their fake aussie accents asking me about my current package with my existing one.
05:52:05 <I_stephen> trying to switch me over
05:53:40 <I_stephen> oh, and another thing. Calling your ISP after an extinct bird is not a good look. especially with all the down time they've been having lately
05:54:13 <Mook> Hmm, I don't think I've really had any of that. But then, I have no land line and just a cell... so that would be sort of bad.
05:54:35 <I_stephen> so you're typing this on your cell right now?
05:54:48 <Mook> no, on my computer. which doesn't have a phone number.
05:54:56 <I_stephen> oh.
05:55:01 <Mook> oh, sorry, that was in reference to the cold calls
05:55:03 <I_stephen> so you're using ADSL
05:55:07 <Mook> yeah
05:55:45 <Mook> I mean, I probably _can_ tether to my cell if I really wanted to, but that's kinda silly (and would be kind of abusive; I don't think their network is designed to handle that sort of traffic)
05:55:56 <I_stephen> there's also this scam going round, where some indians ring you up and tell you there's something wrong with your computer and try to get you to let them into your computer
05:56:22 <I_stephen> so one day I decided to have a bit of fun
05:57:00 <I_stephen> next time I got a call from the scammer, it was an indian lady. and... very casually, and trying to keep a straight face, I asked, um... Hi... Is this my rhandi calling?

12:53:24 <clokep_work> Good morning.
12:54:32 <nhnt11> Morning!
12:55:14 <clokep_work> Seems like a lot of people have actually noticed we don't have nightlies. ;)
12:58:26 --> deOmega has joined #instantbird
13:07:33 <flo-retina> clokep_work: I have noticed!
13:07:37 <flo-retina> clokep_work: and it annoys me :(
13:09:17 <clokep_work> flo-retina: Well I think we're close. :) I applied your dynamic prpl patch and it compiled on Windows btw.
13:09:27 <flo-retina> cool :)
13:10:04 <flo-retina> we still need to get the configure stuff fixed
13:15:17 <clokep_work> Yeah. :-\
13:15:56 <flo-retina> which mostly means someone needs to poke at it
13:16:05 <flo-retina> last time I tried I wasn't very successful
13:16:10 <flo-retina> but I was also very tired
13:16:23 <flo-retina> (that was between 10pm and 1am in the hotel during the Fx work week in Paris IIRC)
13:16:43 * flo-retina is still very tired, recovering from a different work week :-S
13:17:38 * nhnt11 is planning to hack at some code for the next 45 minutes
13:17:48 <flo-retina> cool
13:17:53 <nhnt11> flo-retina, clokep_work: Do you guys have anything you'd like me to work on? Otherwise I'll likely continue that debug log in a tab WIP..
13:17:55 * flo-retina directs nhnt11 to some configure code :-P
13:18:00 <nhnt11> Haha
13:18:11 <flo-retina> nhnt11: that a cool stuff to hack on :)
13:19:18 <clokep_work> nhnt11: Nothing in particular that I'd like.
13:19:27 <clokep_work> I'd like if we could eventually kill the Join Chat dialogue though. ;)
13:19:31 <flo-retina> (I meant the debug log UI; not the autoconf crap)
13:19:42 <clokep_work> flo-retina: Yes, last time I looked at it I didn't get very far either. :(
13:20:53 <flo-retina> clokep_work: it's very easy; the problem I had is it failed at the first or second line that I touched, without any error message :(
13:22:10 <nhnt11> flo-retina: How do I configure a custom objdir path?
13:22:24 <nhnt11> (Do I specify it in the mozconfig?)
13:22:51 <clokep_work> nhnt11: Yes.
13:23:06 <nhnt11> Is it something like  mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/../blabla?
13:23:28 <clokep_work> nhnt11: Are you on Mac?
13:23:31 <clokep_work> It has to be absolute.
13:23:33 <nhnt11> Oh, absolute paths only right?
13:23:36 <clokep_work> (If you're using c-c.)
13:23:36 <nhnt11> Yes
13:23:50 <nhnt11> alright thanks
13:24:04 <clokep_work> nhnt11: |mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=/Users/pcloke/mozilla/comm-central/objdir-im|
13:24:11 <clokep_work> That's mine.
13:24:14 <nhnt11> Understood
13:25:30 <nhnt11> Will a "-dbg" suffix automatically be appended for debug builds or will it use the same one?
13:25:37 <flo-retina> same one
13:26:07 <nhnt11> Hmm. Any way to make it use a different one?
13:26:44 <nhnt11> (Without changing the mozconifg every time, though I could do that with an alias or something)
13:28:20 <flo-retina> I think you are already changing the mozconfig to set it to a debug build ;)
13:28:45 <flo-retina> nhnt11: we used to do it with a variable in our default mozconfig: http://lxr.instantbird.org/instantbird/source/mozconfig#8
13:29:16 <nhnt11> flo-retina: Ah. makes sense now. I had an alias which set the DEBUG variable in my bash profile and was wondering what that was about
13:29:31 <nhnt11> Thanks. That works well.
13:30:07 <clokep_work> flo-retina: :( That's unfortunate, I didn't realize you had looked at this at all.
13:31:01 <flo-retina> the configure stuff?
13:33:46 <nhnt11> Is there any reason I would want to keep the old Instantbird repo?
13:33:56 <clokep_work> flo-retina: Yes.
13:34:46 <flo-retina> maybe I just made a really silly mistake at the time
13:34:55 <flo-retina> nhnt11: if you are feeling nostalgic?
13:35:14 <flo-retina> nhnt11: if you need to test stuff with libpurple before we manage to get our act together on the c-c one?
13:35:52 <nhnt11> I guess that's a good enough reason
13:47:44 * nhnt11 wonders how flo-retina gets 9 minute builds
13:48:13 <clokep_work> Magic. ;)
13:48:26 <flo-retina> nhnt11: debug builds are faster than optimized these days
13:48:49 <nhnt11> That much faster?
13:48:57 <nhnt11> I've never seen a build complete in less than 20 minutes :(
13:49:21 * nhnt11 wonders if having the source on a disk image affects things
13:50:40 <clokep_work> Probably.
13:50:41 --> mayanktg has joined #instantbird
13:51:10 * nhnt11 should time a ramdisk build
13:51:38 <flo-retina> a disk image? O_o
13:52:29 <nhnt11> Er, yeah. It was a habbit from when I was doing Android Open Source Project stuff.
13:52:40 <nhnt11> They recommended keeping the source on a case sensitive disk image
13:53:08 <flo-retina> I just started a clobber build now to see what the time actually is now
13:53:49 <flo-retina> hmm, the mozconfig I used is an opt build, and with libpurple
13:53:56 <flo-retina> I would expect that to take 12 minutes
13:54:29 <nhnt11> Interesting. I'm going to move my source out of the disk image and see if it cuts the time in half
13:54:31 <flo-retina> nhnt11: well, don't do that. Put the source directly on your nice&fast ssd :)
13:58:01 * nhnt11 just realized his ongoing build will be useless if he plans to move everything out of the DMG
14:14:43 <-- deOmega has quit (Ping timeout)
14:18:39 <flo-retina> nhnt11: my build took 13:31.12
14:19:46 <flo-retina> nhnt11: it reached the purple/ folder after 12:43.13
14:21:01 --> mconley has joined #instantbird
14:36:56 <flo-retina> nhnt11: an opt c-c build without purple takes 10:19.87
14:37:35 <flo-retina> the 9minutes I remember must have been a firefox build
14:41:06 <-- Armada has quit (Quit: Leaving)
14:50:46 <flo-retina> I'm actually doing a Firefox build now (but opt)
15:04:45 <flo-retina> nhnt11: 14:09.78
15:05:08 <flo-retina> I wonder if "9minutes" wasn't actually Instantbird on my new linux desktop machine :)
15:23:59 --> aleth has joined #instantbird
15:23:59 * ChanServ sets mode +h aleth 
15:27:14 * clokep_work really doesn't understand why everyone writes InstantBird. :(

15:30:30 --> aleth has joined #instantbird
15:30:30 * ChanServ sets mode +h aleth 
15:31:20 <aleth> ClokepWork: too many BrandedProducts using that as their naming gimmick a couple years ago?;)
15:35:03 <mayanktg> aleth: http://lxr.instantbird.org/instantbird/source/purple/purplexpcom/src/purpleAccount.cpp#966 what's incorrect in the comment? :-o
15:35:33 <-- aleth has quit (Ping timeout)
15:36:06 <mayanktg> I localized the user-visible strings :) 
15:36:15 --> aleth has joined #instantbird
15:36:15 * ChanServ sets mode +h aleth 
15:36:32 <clokep_work> aleth: I think it's more of an attentiont to detail thing. I really hate when people use the wrong spelling of people's names, e.g. Eric vs. Erik vs. Erich.
15:37:15 <mayanktg> Also please tell me about prpl. Everyone is discussing about it and I feel left out of conversation :(
15:38:08 <clokep_work> mayanktg: prpl == "protocol plugin", i.e. the separate implementations for each protocol used in Instantbird, e.g. IRC, XMPP, etc.
15:38:39 <mayanktg> clokep_work: Mark's reaction over FaceBook. :D
15:38:43 --> aleth1 has joined #instantbird
15:38:44 <-- aleth has quit (Ping timeout)
15:39:29 <mayanktg> clokep_work: Okay!! I will have to study that. Thanks :)
15:39:29 <flo-retina> clokep_work, aleth: more seriously, is anybody replying to that guy, or should I?
15:39:40 <flo-retina> aleth1: ^^
15:40:11 * flo-retina wonders if tab complete should have completed aleth1 instead of aleth 'automatically'
15:40:39 * aleth1 is now known as aleth
15:40:56 <flo-retina> also, completion suggestions that stay displayed in the conversation after we are done sending the message is something we should get rid of
15:41:01 <flo-retina> what about a panel instead?
15:41:06 * aleth wonders if the nick should have switched back 'automatically'
15:41:19 <clokep_work> mayanktg: I don't know what that means. :-\
15:41:29 <flo-retina> aleth: that's another approach to the problem I guess :)
15:41:52 <aleth> Definitely agreed about the panel (or dropdown or whatever), but I want to add tests before adding anything.
15:41:53 <clokep_work> flo-retina: You mean a panel where you're typing? That's what I've always wanted. :-D
15:42:13 <aleth> Hard to do though I have some ideas about where to start digging.
15:42:29 <flo-retina> mayanktg: line 968 "Get the icon file URL from purpleCoreService." is obsolete
15:42:38 <flo-retina> should say "Get the icon file URL from the current user status."
15:42:58 <flo-retina> or "Get the icon file URL from the current user status info."
15:43:55 <aleth> clokep_work: 'hard to do' referring to the panel dropdown idea ;)
15:44:17 <flo-retina> mayanktg: also, I don't see any code touching preferences in that method, so line 983 seems wrong too. (you can likely just remove it)
15:44:22 --> wnayes has joined #instantbird
15:45:17 <aleth> mayanktg: More generally, the idea was for you to look at the various places in the code that will be called when "null" is the argument for setUserIcon and make sure /you/ understand why they won't fail.
15:45:33 <mayanktg> flo-retina: ok
15:45:50 <flo-retina> clokep_work: I mean having half my conversation area covered by http://i5.minus.com/ib2dQLrkFUQscc.png sucks
15:45:57 <aleth> mayanktg: Likely the comment also wants to mention (after you have checked) that the icon will be removed if ...
15:46:17 <aleth> flo-retina: It's a total eyesore and also not very obvious as to what it means to the newbie
15:46:31 <aleth> We should keep UI stuff outside the conversation imho
15:46:33 <flo-retina> aleth: it's obvious at the time while pressing tab.
15:46:40 <flo-retina> It's non-obvious when you return to it
15:46:46 <aleth> Yes
15:47:47 <flo-retina> so is anybody replying to that remote-XUL email?
15:48:37 <aleth> The most suitable reply would be "come to #instantbird"...

15:53:46 <clokep_work> aleth: I'm sure you'll figure out a way. ;)
15:54:16 <flo-retina> aleth: I was thinking of a longer answer
15:54:33 <clokep_work> flo-retina: I am not. I think his idea is something we've discussed a bunch of times, but people have done that w/ libpurple already.
15:54:34 <flo-retina> aleth: composed of "no, but here are 2 other possible options you may be interested in"
15:54:41 <clokep_work> (I also only read the first paragraph of his email. :))
15:56:06 <aleth> clokep_work: If he is interested in writing a bouncer-like version of Instantbird, or an Instantbird addon for FX, we could give him pointers
15:59:28 <aleth> Does/did something called "RemoteXUL" actually exist?
15:59:39 <clokep_work> aleth: Yes.
15:59:50 <clokep_work> It was XUL served via the web.
15:59:53 * mconley is now known as mconley|interview
15:59:54 <clokep_work> I.e. using XUL to make webpages.
16:00:13 <clokep_work> aleth: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Remote_XUL
16:00:57 <aleth> Thanks. I was wondering how that could possibly work with regard to privileges etc...
16:01:30 <flo-retina> aleth: privileges aren't relevant for the markup language you use.
16:01:36 <flo-retina> aleth: you just don't have access to Components.*

16:06:18 <aleth> flo-retina: Right. But you'd need Components to run anything like IB that way...
16:06:37 <flo-retina> aleth: no, you would just XHR to the server
16:06:45 <flo-retina> or websocket, or whatever
16:07:31 <aleth> Oh, I see.

16:18:53 <flo-retina> bah https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=778683#c5 :(
16:18:57 <instantbot> Bug 778683 nor, --, ---, florian, NEW, Clean up `Output()` function in nsMailApp.cpp on Windows
16:23:24 <clokep_work> Wasn't that a straight port? :(
16:23:32 <flo-retina> it is!
16:24:07 <aleth> So you are effectively supposed to improve it in m-c too?
16:24:21 <flo-retina> except his points aren't valid for the usage made in m-c
16:24:36 <aleth> Then it's bad to fork it I would have thought

16:41:47 <instantbot> New Chat Core - XMPP bug 974438 filed by aleth@instantbird.org.
16:41:48 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=974438 nor, --, ---, nobody, NEW, JS-XMPP fails to set the resource correctly for XMPP accounts created with libpurple
16:48:00 <clokep_work> :( That's unfortunate.
16:52:36 <flo-retina> aleth: I think that bug needs more details
16:53:07 <aleth> It does, but I filed it purely as a placeholder so it doesn't get forgotten.
16:54:28 * mconley|interview is now known as mconley
17:14:28 <nhnt11> flo-retina: You've got a new linux desktop? Specs? :D
17:14:50 <aleth> nhnt11: Debug logs in a tab sound great :)
17:15:15 <nhnt11> Cool
17:16:19 <aleth> Especially if you enable the findbar ;)
17:16:37 <nhnt11> Shouldn't be a problem if it's in a browser (which it is) ;)
17:16:41 <aleth> If you wanted to get elaborate, you could add some CSS to make them more readable
17:16:47 <nhnt11> Yeah that's the plan
17:16:50 <nhnt11> color coding et al
17:16:52 <aleth> Cool.
17:17:05 <nhnt11> First I have to get this to build -_-'
17:17:12 <aleth> What's your build problem?
17:17:29 <nhnt11> aleth: I moved my c-c directory so there are some path issues :/
17:21:24 <nhnt11> Hmm, a convfigure error
17:23:00 <nhnt11> Any ideas? http://pastebin.instantbird.com/599549
17:25:12 <nhnt11> Wait, it seems to think my comm-central folder is a C compiler? Wtf?
17:25:24 <nhnt11> (Line 83-84)
17:26:52 <aleth> No idea how you got it into that state...
17:26:56 <nhnt11> Was I not supposed to directly move my comm-central folder?
17:27:05 * nhnt11 didn't think that would affect anything
17:27:12 <clokep_work> You can do that, I don't know if objdirs like being moved.
17:27:16 <aleth> Try clobbering and check for absolute paths
17:27:21 <nhnt11> I already clobbered
17:27:43 <nhnt11> this was after $./mozilla/mach clobber && ./mozilla/mach build
17:30:08 <aleth> But is the old objdir still around?
17:30:11 <nhnt11> Nope
17:30:22 <nhnt11> I didn't move any objdirs
17:30:45 <nhnt11> (rm -rf'd them)
17:31:26 <aleth> Try mach configure, you never know, it helped me the other day ;)
17:31:51 <nhnt11> Doesn't mach build start with configure after a clobber?
17:31:58 <nhnt11> anyway, same outpu
17:31:58 <nhnt11> output*
17:33:46 <nhnt11> Oh lord
17:33:49 <nhnt11> I figured it out
17:34:04 <nhnt11> I added an environment variable CC that points to my c-c directory
17:34:10 <aleth> :D
17:34:29 <nhnt11> -_-'
17:36:45 <nhnt11> All good now :)
17:36:57 <aleth> At least the fix was easy :)
17:37:13 <nhnt11> I'm glad I found it though
17:37:32 <aleth> Yeah, it did look strange.
17:37:32 <nhnt11> Rather, glad I didn't waste time trying fixes that wouldn't have worked
17:38:35 * nhnt11 is timing his build
17:38:56 <aleth> Mach times it for you automatically.
17:39:08 * nhnt11 didn't know that
17:39:23 --> Mook_as has joined #instantbird
17:39:38 <nhnt11> I'll probably time it on a ramdisk after this just for fun :D
17:42:28 <nhnt11> Oh wait, mach puts a timestamp on every line of the output
17:42:30 <nhnt11> Duh
17:42:51 * nhnt11 thought those were absolute timestamps and ignored them

19:54:02 <clokep_work> mayanktg: Did you mean to request review?
19:54:50 <mayanktg> clokep_work: yes, I changed the code aleth mentioned
19:55:00 <clokep_work> You didn't request review though. :)
19:55:29 <mayanktg> Ahhh...I'm half asleep :-/ Not my day today 
19:55:49 <clokep_work> I did it for you. ;) You should usually mark the old patch as obsolete too.
19:56:25 <mayanktg> yes, I know that. last time I did added a review request.
19:56:54 <mayanktg> *add
19:58:15 <mayanktg> clokep_work: Thanks again!!
19:59:06 <clokep_work> mayanktg: No problem. :) Overall it looks pretty good, but I didn't do a full review. :)
20:01:27 <mayanktg> clokep_work: fingers crossed
20:03:48 <clokep_work> :)
20:04:00 <clokep_work> mayanktg: What was the other bug you looked at?
20:04:29 <mayanktg> clokep_work: I'm searching for a new one now 
20:06:30 <mayanktg> I'm still working with the hg.instandbird.org build... Shall i switch to windows to use c-c?
20:06:39 <clokep_work> OK. :) Let me know if you have questions.
20:06:55 <clokep_work> Umm...c-c should build now as long as you don't need to touch purple/.
20:07:47 <mayanktg> Really! thats great :) I will try to build again then
20:10:55 <clokep_work> Yup yup.

20:57:55 <nhnt11> flo-retina, clokep_work: I'm filing a bug to fix make package. What product should I file it under?
20:58:24 <nhnt11> Instantbird? Or is there something for the c-c build system?
21:00:52 <clokep_work> nhnt11: Does make package not work?
21:01:54 <clokep_work> nhnt11: It would be filed under Instantbird, we might have a build system component, I forget.
21:02:06 <nhnt11> clokep_work: Nope. flo-retina found https://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/7586a9a93b6a and https://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/fbec5015c536 which need to be ported

21:04:54 <instantbot> New Instantbird - Other bug 974610 filed by nhnt11@gmail.com.
21:04:55 <nhnt11> BMO has a "Paste text as attachment". Nifty :D
21:09:54 <flo-retina> using BMO instead of BIO is a great improvement ;)
21:11:12 <nhnt11> flo-retina: So I've suffixed "r=flo" and used your florian@queze.net email address.
21:11:26 <nhnt11> If you need that to be Florian or a different email address, let me know
21:11:27 <flo-retina> I think I usually use r=florian on BMO
21:11:36 <flo-retina> the email address is correct :)
21:12:03 <flo-retina> I should get my IRC nick vs reviewer id story simplified ;)
21:12:12 <nhnt11> Is flo vs florian excusable or should I upload a new patch?
21:12:13 <flo-retina> if someone could get this account renaming thing working ;)
21:12:54 <flo-retina> nhnt11: it's excusable, but if you are going to mark the patch as checkin-needed, you likely want a better commit message that at least includes the bug number
21:13:09 <nhnt11> Didn't i add the bug number? :(
21:13:11 <nhnt11> Sorry
21:13:27 <flo-retina> no worries
21:13:36 * flo-retina isn't completely sure what a good commit message is
21:13:38 <flo-retina> in this case
21:13:53 <nhnt11> Yeah, I couldn't decide either so I just used the problem I was trying to solve :P
21:14:25 <flo-retina> "Bug NNNNNN - Stop packaging TelemetryPing.js and dom_camera.xpt, r=florian." ?
21:14:43 <nhnt11> Okay
21:15:01 --> qlum has joined #instantbird
21:15:04 <nhnt11> Should I rename the bug as well?
21:15:44 <flo-retina> hmm, optional :)
21:16:11 <flo-retina> I would name it "make package doesn't work - Missing files TelemetryPing.js and dom_camera.xpt"
21:16:16 <flo-retina> (which could also be a good commit message)
21:16:30 <nhnt11> Cool
21:17:50 <nhnt11> Oh, you r+'d it already
21:18:24 <clokep_work> nhnt11: Just carry it forward.
21:18:41 <nhnt11> Yeah okay
21:19:42 <nhnt11> Wait what?
21:20:27 <clokep_work> nhnt11: If you're uploading a new patch, just mark it as r+ and say "I'm carrying the review forward as I've only changed the commit message" or something.
21:20:51 <nhnt11> Oh okay. I thought you were referring to some magical way to keep Florian's r+ :P
21:20:58 <clokep_work> No.
21:21:00 <flo-retina> or just "Updated commit message." ;)
21:21:29 <clokep_work> nhnt11: flo-retina and I will vouch for you if you want: https://www.mozilla.org/hacking/commit-access-policy/
21:21:54 <nhnt11> :)
21:22:04 <nhnt11> I don't think I really need commit access of any form right now though...
21:22:16 <nhnt11> So I'll leave it up to you at this point
21:22:29 <clokep_work> It's not up to us, it's up to you. :P
21:23:48 <nhnt11> I meant, do you think it would be useful to me?
21:26:01 <nhnt11> clokep_work: What level access would I get?
21:26:06 <flo-retina> checking the patch yourself would take you the same amount of time as uploading a new patch with updated commit message.
21:26:17 <flo-retina> but the difference is: the patch lands immediately ;)
21:26:53 <flo-retina> if you rely on checkin-needed (which works quite well these days, admitedly) the time between when your patch is ready and when it lands is unpredictable
21:27:08 <clokep_work> nhnt11: 3
21:27:18 <clokep_work> IF you have both of us vouching for you.
21:27:21 <flo-retina> nhnt11: you would get enough to checkin to comm-central and mozilla-central. (and of course the try server)
21:27:50 <nhnt11> Okay. I'd be honored :)
21:28:01 * nhnt11 was maybe a tad dramatic there
21:29:48 <mayanktg> nhnt11: Congrats ;)
21:31:28 <flo-retina> nhnt11: you still want to add checkin-needed on that bug, getting commit access involves signing a paper form, so it takes at least a day ;)
21:31:44 <nhnt11> I was just doing that
21:31:49 <nhnt11> mayanktg: Thanks. Congrats on your first bug
21:33:30 <mayanktg> nhnt11: :)
21:35:33 <flo-retina> nhnt11: it's a keyword on BMO, not in the whiteboard
21:35:46 <flo-retina> (although I wouldn't be fully surprised if the sheriffs found it in the whiteboard anyway)
21:35:58 * nhnt11 will need to learn these BMOisms
21:36:43 <flo-retina> another thing you'll learn is that if something is marked checkin-needed, it will be checked in *soon*, so don't expect me to have a look before it lands any more :)
21:37:13 <clokep_work> They'll find it...
21:38:11 <nhnt11> flo-retina: Haha, I'll keep that in mind.
21:40:21 <nhnt11> The committer's agreement form has an awfully small space for Postal Address

22:07:47 <I_stephen> Hey there
22:08:04 <I_stephen> does instantbird work with msn messenger service?
22:08:52 <I_stephen> I can't seem to log in
22:09:10 <flo-retina> I_stephen: usually it does. There may be server issues today.
22:09:18 <flo-retina> Would anybody be interested in creating a simple add-on?
22:09:44 <flo-retina> the idea is to have a trivially simple way to stop the annoyance when someone keeps sending you private messages
22:09:45 <I_stephen> so I dont need to change any options in the account manager or anything?
22:10:01 <flo-retina> the add-on would basically just add an /ignore command in private conversations
22:10:14 <flo-retina> The username and protocol id (or account id) would be stored in a preference
22:10:38 <flo-retina> and the the add-on would use the interruption manager to automatically put on hold similar conversations.
22:10:47 <flo-retina> http://hg.instantbird.org/addons/file/ca4ba6af0b8a/donotdisturb/bootstrap.js is an example of using the interruption manager
22:10:54 <I_stephen> oh btw, if I accidentally create an account where I've entered the wrong username, how do I change it?
22:11:07 <flo-retina> I_stephen: you remove the account, and create a new one
22:11:18 <I_stephen> oh
22:15:32 <I_stephen> thats a bit annoying
22:15:43 <I_stephen> will there be a fix for this issue in future?
22:19:24 <-- mayanktg has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
22:19:34 <flo-retina> if someone fixes it, yes
22:24:32 <I_stephen> if I log into msn messager and enter the wrong username or password, why doesn't instantbird show any errors?
22:25:30 <I_stephen> I logged into my msn/live account and all my contacts are missing, and I thought this must be because I entered the wrong username and password
22:27:22 <flo-retina> if the username or password is wrong, there'll be an error in the account manager
22:28:16 <I_stephen> oh ok
22:31:50 <I_stephen> whew. thought all my contacts had gone for good
22:33:12 <I_stephen> Yikes! If you try downloading the msn messenger program from micro$soft and signing into your old account, it asks you to update msn messenger, and then it forces you to download skype.
22:33:46 <I_stephen> so I loaded up skype and tried logging into my live account, and it offered to merge both accounts old and new.
22:34:17 <I_stephen> no way. not after what happened to a friend when he did it
22:34:33 <I_stephen> he lost all his skype and msn contacts and had to start over
22:39:44 <I_stephen> btw: sorry for all the questions. where is the ignore list? I used to be able to bring it up but the option seems to have disappeared and I can't find it
22:41:45 <flo-retina> Instantbird never had an ignore list
22:43:07 <I_stephen> Oh.
