10:46:12 <flo-retina> the mac failure is because we need to port: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/3f528e61aacf#l6.1
10:46:33 <flo-retina> that landed yesterday
10:46:34 <flo-retina> :(
10:47:18 <flo-retina> and Tb is as busted as us

11:34:38 <flo-retina> these online services on which you need to login once a year that block your account after 3 wrong passwords (and then want to send you another temporary password through snail mail) are so annoying :(

11:43:42 <Mic> Time for new Mac nightlies? :)
11:44:47 <flo-retina> already started ;)
11:45:48 <Mic> Good luck! 
11:45:48 --> igorko has joined #instantbird
11:49:34 <flo-retina> the other thing I hate, is when they tell you what the constraints for passwords are (eg this time '8 to 13 digits') only after you are in a position to reset the password.... when in most cases, knowing that constrain again will cause me to recreate the same password
11:56:53 <-- mayanktg has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)

12:40:36 <nhnt11> flo-retina: http://log.bezut.info/instantbird/today/#m119 That absolutely sucks (how different sites have different constraints)

12:41:24 <nhnt11> And snail mail? seriously? :S
12:41:32 --> mayanktg has joined #instantbird
12:42:46 <nhnt11> mayanktg: Congrats on the r+ :)
12:43:10 <mayanktg> :)
12:43:29 <-- mayanktg has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
12:45:00 <flo-retina> nhnt11: yes, I'm not even kidding ;)
12:45:30 <flo-retina> nhnt11: the best thing about the snail mail part is that they send you a temporary code "8 to 12 days after the request"... and the said code is valid only for 2 weeks
12:45:46 <nhnt11> Hahahaha
12:45:55 <nhnt11> I've never heard of snail mail password resets
12:45:58 <flo-retina> so you can't predict when you'll receive it, but you have to be around...
12:47:08 <nhnt11> After getting pissed at these sites numerous times I created a password that works pretty much with all possible sets of constraints and now use it for any site that I don't care about ;)
12:47:29 <flo-retina> nhnt11: that's not possible
12:47:44 <nhnt11> It hasn't failed on me so far, so.... 
12:47:46 * nhnt11 shrugs
12:47:56 <flo-retina> the website that bugged me yesterday required at least 8 characters, including at least one upper case letter, one lower case letter, and one digit
12:48:07 <flo-retina> the website that annoyed me today required 8 to 13 digits. No letters allowed.
12:48:16 <nhnt11> No letters allowed? :S
12:48:19 <nhnt11> wtf
12:48:24 <nhnt11> That's a new one...
12:48:34 <flo-retina> nhnt11: well, paper letters for the snail mail thing; but not the letters on my keyboard ;)
12:49:03 --> mayanktg has joined #instantbird
12:49:16 * nhnt11 is still digesting the fact that there exist websites that require completely numeric passwords.
12:49:22 <-- igorko has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.5 -- http://www.instantbird.com)
12:49:43 <flo-retina> nhnt11: this one is the French social security
12:49:43 <mayanktg> flo-retina: did the changes.
12:50:07 <flo-retina> nhnt11: another one is my bank (or banks in general; as the other 2 banks I used also had numbers-only codes)
12:50:37 <nhnt11> Now I'm even more surprised...
12:51:03 <flo-retina> but I know my bank access codes; I use that website at least weekly
12:51:11 <flo-retina> but social security... once a year, so the code is always forgotten
12:51:43 * nhnt11 sighs
12:51:55 <flo-retina> nhnt11: thankfully they could email me a recovery code (that was only 4 digits, so doesn't even match their policy!) after I answered a security question
12:52:11 <nhnt11> Bah
12:52:17 <flo-retina> a question that anybody who vaguely knows me or can use google could have answered (my father's first name)
12:52:25 <nhnt11> I save all my passwords in Firefox so I've stopped worrying about this stuff
12:53:10 <flo-retina> I tend to email to me the pointless passwords as a reply to the password reset link
12:53:30 <flo-retina> so next time I'm stuck with the password of a website that has pointless requirements and that I don't remember, I just query gmail
12:53:45 <nhnt11> that works :)
12:53:52 <flo-retina> (obviously I don't send to my mailbox the important passwords... only the pointless ones)
12:54:00 * nhnt11 is reminded of a tim berners lee quote every time there's mention of emailing oneself
12:54:08 <nhnt11> er, i mean xkcd quote *
12:54:25 <nhnt11> https://xkcd.com/949/
12:54:37 <nhnt11> (the alt text..)
12:54:50 <flo-retina> btw, Even wanted to bet that putting an ethernet cable instead of the wifi for the mac slave would solve the "slave lost" issues.
12:54:56 --> nick4 has joined #instantbird
12:54:57 <flo-retina> I tried putting a cable 10 minutes ago
12:55:03 <flo-retina> we will see tomorrow if he was right :)
12:55:51 <nick4> How do I create a new XMPP account on Instantbird?
12:56:24 <nhnt11> flo-retina: Btw, I'm curious, what exactly is this trying to do? hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/3f528e61aacf#l6.1
12:56:30 <nhnt11> Rewriting existing stuff in C++?
12:56:32 <flo-retina> mayanktg: looks ready! :)
12:56:41 <mayanktg> :-D
12:56:49 <flo-retina> nhnt11: is this the console api stuff?
12:57:03 <nhnt11> nick4: Account Manager -> New Account, then in the protocol list choose "Show all protocols" at the end
12:57:06 <mayanktg> by the way Randall, the xkcd guy is awesome ;)
12:57:24 <nhnt11> NASA engineer turned webcomic author ;)
12:57:29 <nhnt11> flo-retina: Yeah..
12:57:43 <flo-retina> nhnt11: so why emailing stuff to oneself makes you think of driving around with a usb stick?
12:57:46 <nhnt11> Hmm, I didn't look at the bug on bmo, i'll do that
12:58:00 <nhnt11> flo-retina: It doesn't. Just reminds me of the alt-text on that comic
12:58:04 <flo-retina> nhnt11: so what happened is that there were several implementations of the same (or similar) API(s). They unified them all.
12:58:14 <nhnt11> Ah okay.
12:58:19 <flo-retina> nhnt11: and one of the cases (web workers IIRC) required the implementation to be in C++
12:59:11 <flo-retina> nhnt11: I don't intend to use my social security password on a friend's laptop, so Tim is safe ;)
12:59:58 <nick4> nhnt11 ohhhh, if the account doesn't exist, it will be created? Nice!
13:00:09 <nhnt11> nick4: Oh
13:00:17 <nhnt11> I'm sorry, I misunderstood your question
13:00:44 <nhnt11> No, afaik the account needs to pre-exist
13:01:17 <Mic> mayanktg: you don't have to re-request review from me if you're adressing flo's comments.
13:01:24 <nick4> ahhh, I see
13:02:05 <Mic> bug 955317
13:02:08 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=955317 enh, --, ---, nobody, NEW, Support XEP-0077 (In-Band Registration/Password Change)
13:02:37 <nick4> that's a problem for me. I wanted to recommend Instantbird to people but telling them they need another program to create an account is... awkward
13:02:41 <nick4> ah, there is a bug report
13:03:07 <-- mayanktg has quit (Ping timeout)
13:03:13 <nick4> I guess then this might change in the future
13:03:19 <nick4> thanks Mic and nhnt11 
13:07:15 --> mayanktg has joined #instantbird
13:07:38 <mayanktg> Mic: Ok
13:10:39 <-- mayanktg has quit (Ping timeout)
13:12:32 <flo-retina> nick4: this probably won't change unless someone starts working on a patch forit
13:12:35 <flo-retina> *for it
13:21:07 <instant-buildbot> build #2065 of macosx-nightly-default is complete: Failure [4failed compile]  Build details are at http://buildbot.instantbird.org/builders/macosx-nightly-default/builds/2065
13:26:57 * nhnt11 has been fiddling with CSS for bug 955673 and gotten nowhere
13:26:59 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=955673 nor, --, ---, nobody, NEW, [Regression] User icon overflows its rounded border
13:28:45 <Mic> nhnt11: have you searched for the problem?
13:29:08 <nhnt11> :O
13:29:09 <nhnt11> \o/
13:29:09 <nhnt11> Mic: Googled extensively
13:29:09 <nhnt11> I just got it to work
13:29:09 <nhnt11> By removing the border on the image, and instead putting it on the stack
13:29:26 * nhnt11 is extremely confused about why this works
13:29:38 <Mic> That's what the Stack Overflow  answer that I just read suggested ;)
13:29:47 <nhnt11> Mic: Link?
13:29:54 <Mic> "Use two containers ..."
13:29:57 <Mic> http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6856711/css-rounded-corners-on-an-image-problem
13:30:18 <nhnt11> Mic: The real reason I'm confused is that it definitely worked on the image before
13:31:03 <nhnt11> How did I not see that before
13:31:30 <nhnt11> I searched for every possible combination of "rounded corners" "image" "css" and "border"
13:32:39 * nhnt11 is happy
13:35:37 --> Armada has joined #instantbird
13:37:49 <nhnt11> Bah
13:38:04 <nhnt11> This has the side effect of clipping the status indicator dot
13:38:32 <nhnt11> So I guess I need to add another container specifically for the image...
13:38:34 <Mic> Render everything in a canvas and display that :P
13:39:35 <nhnt11> Hmm, it only gets clipped in the blist window
13:40:10 <nick4> hmmm... nhnt11 make a box with rounded corners and then place the image as background
13:40:16 <nhnt11> (it's just touching the border in the awesometab and conversation headers, so it's not a problem)
13:40:21 <nick4> but that 'removes' the image from the markup
13:40:34 <nhnt11> nick4: The image is dynamically set from code
13:40:40 <nhnt11> So I don't think I can make it a background
13:40:47 <nhnt11> Well not without making it look hacky
13:40:57 <nick4> you could use inline styles but that's ugly
13:41:30 <nick4> you can lay a box over the image, perhaps?
13:41:33 <Mic> I don't think that putting it in a rule vs inline style would make a difference.
13:42:05 <nick4> lets pin things down: do you need to have your image in markup?
13:42:54 <nhnt11> Er, no.
13:44:14 * nhnt11 is actually tempted to change the position of the status indicator dot in the blist to match the conversation header/awesometab
13:44:50 <Mic> nhnt11: what's the difference? 1px shifted to the right and bottom?
13:45:31 <nhnt11> Mic: Blist: http://puu.sh/7eMLt.png, new conv tab: http://puu.sh/7eMMb.png
13:45:35 --> rosonline has joined #instantbird
13:45:40 <flo-retina> don't we use [src=""] to set the placeholder?
13:45:57 <nhnt11> flo-retina: Yes
13:47:10 <nhnt11> Putting an hbox around the img fixes it and is elegant enough imo
13:47:13 <nhnt11> Mic: Thoughts? ^
13:47:53 <Mic> flo-retina: yes, we do.
13:51:32 <flo-retina> so the mac nightly actually built OK
13:51:53 <flo-retina> it's just mach that fails at the end when trying to print the path to the binary that people can try
13:52:35 <nhnt11> Ah, that bug
13:52:43 <nhnt11> flo-retina: symlink objdir/dist to objdir/mozilla/dist?
13:53:25 <flo-retina> nhnt11: the actual insult from mach is http://pastebin.instantbird.com/613409
13:53:33 <flo-retina> so that likely won't help
13:53:45 <flo-retina> I wonder if this specific mach failure is specific to universal builds
13:53:45 <nhnt11> Oh
13:54:27 <flo-retina> anyway, Tb Nightlies seem to still use make -f client.mk
13:54:36 <flo-retina> so I think I'll just stop using mach with buildbot and see what the result is

14:02:38 <flo-retina> what's mozmake ?

14:26:14 <nhnt11> Mic: Should I rebase on his and mark it as dependant?
14:26:20 * nhnt11 checks it out
14:26:28 <nhnt11> Mic: Er wait, which patch?
14:26:58 <Mic> The rounded corner-patch.
14:27:02 <nhnt11> Okay
14:27:07 <nhnt11> Ah, the blist thing
14:28:00 <nhnt11> Should I rebase and upload a new patch now or just wait for mayanktg's to get checked in or something?
14:28:17 <flo-retina> I won't do checkins until we have nightlies

14:41:07 <flo-retina> bah...
14:41:15 <flo-retina> aleth: frustration is up ;)
14:41:27 <flo-retina> wow, the Mac build passed!
14:41:31 <flo-retina> (the compile step I mean)
14:41:40 * nhnt11 discovers mach mercurial-setup
14:41:43 <aleth> That's what I was just looking at...
14:42:50 <aleth> I guess it needs a workaround for the mach exit code.
14:43:03 <aleth> nhnt11: You haven't got mercurial set up?
14:43:47 <flo-retina> looks like some of the build symbols won't be correct
14:43:53 <flo-retina> if that'sthe only issue, it doesn't matter much
14:44:05 <nhnt11> aleth: Depends on what you mean by set up ;)
14:44:12 <flo-retina> aleth: I stopped using mach
14:44:15 <nhnt11> It was working sure, but now I have bzexport/qimportbz/other stuff
14:45:26 <aleth> I don't trust those extra mach commands working with cc.
14:45:46 <flo-retina> aleth: I suspect it's c-c+universal mac build that's causing my problem
14:45:59 <nhnt11> aleth: Was that @me or @f_lo?
14:46:33 <flo-retina> I wonder if the "exception slave lost" errors are actually fixed, or if we have just been lucky for this specific build
14:47:30 <aleth> nhnt11: @flo but I just tried mercurial-setup and it just installed some extensions I already had in a nonstandard location.
14:48:08 * nhnt11 didn't have those extensions
14:48:25 <aleth> I have them but somehow never use them.
14:52:20 <aleth> flo-retina: There are some strange errors in that log (at least things I've not seen before), like console.error 
14:52:33 <flo-retina> which log?
14:52:40 <aleth> http://buildbot.instantbird.org/builders/macosx-nightly-default/builds/2065/steps/compile/logs/stdio
14:53:36 <flo-retina> aleth: you mean resource://gre/modules/devtools/gcli.jsm ?
14:53:45 <flo-retina> we've had that for a long while, and Tb (maybe even Fx) has them too
14:54:18 <aleth> Yes - I somehow never noticed it before
14:54:28 <flo-retina> I've wanted to silence that noise once, but gave up (I don't remember why; probably just someone higher priority falling on my plate at that time)
14:54:52 <flo-retina> s/someone/something/
14:57:40 <flo-retina> ah, "Could not determine repo info for /Users/buildbot/buildslave/macosx/build/mozilla.  This is either not a clone of the web-based repository, or you have not specified SRCSRV_ROOT, or the clone is corrupt" is actually familiar now.
14:58:07 <flo-retina> it was the reason for http://lxr.instantbird.org/instantbird/source/tools/patches/symbolstore-no-local-hg.patch
14:58:35 <flo-retina> hmm, how much are we regressing, now that none of http://lxr.instantbird.org/instantbird/source/tools/patches gets applied? :(
14:59:06 <aleth> Hopefully some of those are obsolete

15:03:10 <aleth> Then see if someone backs it out.
15:09:57 <flo-retina> aleth: checkin-needed would make a sheriff look at it
15:10:09 <flo-retina> I could as well just throw it at mozilla-inbound ;)
15:10:20 <aleth> Not a sheriff, but someone cc'd on the bug who cares ;)
15:11:05 <flo-retina> ah, too late, a sheriff already replied
15:11:06 <aleth> i.e. it might generate some activity in the bug.

15:13:30 <petunia> good afternoon
15:14:49 <Mic> Hello! I hope our work yesterday evening paid off? :)
15:15:06 <petunia> yesterday I tried instant bird addonfor "ignore" comand in irc but it doesn't work... :( 
15:15:09 <flo-retina> symbol generation seems to be stuck :(
15:15:27 <Mic> :o
15:16:31 <Mic> aleth: do you have a minute to try an add-on with me?
15:16:54 <aleth> Mic: OK
15:19:14 <flo-retina> aleth: Mic wants you to ignore him ;).
15:19:24 <aleth> flo-retina: I did
15:19:40 <aleth> flo-retina: But he was ignoring me so didn't notice ;)
15:20:52 <Mic> petunia: what isn't working as you expected?
15:21:30 --> deOmega has joined #instantbird
15:23:08 <petunia> if i type "ignore" comand, it says that is an invalid comand
15:23:24 <flo-retina> the dump_syms processes have already been running for 50minutes, without any trace of an output
15:23:38 <petunia> iand the nick type: /ignore space 
15:23:51 <petunia> sorry
15:24:05 <petunia> i type: /ignore space and the nick
15:24:13 <petunia> is it right?
15:26:00 <Mic> Is the add-on installed and enabled? Check the "Extensions"-panel of the add-on manager and see if it appears there.
15:26:02 <aleth> petunia: It only works for IRC
15:27:11 <deOmega> I read some awesome news about IB yesterday and Tor.  I would say MAJOR congratulations are in order?
15:27:25 <petunia> it appears and it is abled
15:27:31 <flo-retina> deOmega: hello :).
15:27:58 <flo-retina> deOmega: has you seen it on arstechnica? :)
15:28:20 <aleth> petunia: If you try /help is the ignore command listed?
15:28:35 <deOmega> flo-retina: http://www.dailydot.com/technology/tor-instant-messaging-bundle/
15:28:42 <nhnt11> flo-retina, aleth: By the way, I think the "based on XULRunner" is from wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instantbird
15:29:15 <aleth> nhnt11: want to update that page?
15:29:33 <aleth> I think GPL is wrong too
15:29:46 <flo-retina> aleth: our binaries are GPL'ed
15:29:55 <aleth> Doesn't mention the awesometab either :P
15:29:57 <Mic> petunia: type /ignore and press enter after it.
15:29:58 <petunia> no there isn't
15:30:02 <nhnt11> I wouldn't mind, but my University's IP address is blocked from editing pages/creating accounts by wikipedia ;)
15:30:06 <nhnt11> (for vandalism... sigh)
15:30:11 <flo-retina> nhnt11: :(
15:30:16 <Mic> It should say something like "16:28:23 - ignore <nick1>[,<nick2>]*: Don't show messages from nick1, nick2..."
15:30:24 <nhnt11> I could do it from 3G later though
15:30:33 <deOmega> flo-retina: Just fyi..I came across it reading via Flipboard and techmeme.
15:30:45 <aleth> petunia: Did you restart Instantbird after installing the add-on?
15:30:53 <Mic> aleth: it's restartless :)
15:30:59 <aleth> Oh OK
15:31:02 <flo-retina> deOmega: at this point I think they have finished initial investigations, and decided to base their work on Instantbird; but haven't actually started.
15:31:06 <petunia> yes, i restarted
15:31:39 <flo-retina> deOmega: from what I heard they do have some funding to actually pay contractors to work on this project. So things should move quickly.
15:32:13 <-- GeKo has quit (Ping timeout)
15:32:18 <deOmega> flo-retina: That is really very cool...and I am not  too surprised.  I was  really pleased to see.
15:33:35 <deOmega> Anyway, you guys are crazy busy it seems so will head out.. just wanted to drop in and congratulate.
15:33:39 <petunia> if i type /ignore, it says that ignore is an invalid comand
15:33:52 <Mic> That's strange :(
15:33:53 <flo-retina> ah, most of the dump_syms processes are gone. Only the one related to XUL and purplexpcom are still running
15:34:05 <flo-retina> they started a few minutes after the others
15:34:46 <flo-retina> deOmega: crazy busy... I'm not sure. Each of us is looking at some stuff, but I don't think we are busy doing the same thing, so we keep checking what's going on here :).
15:35:02 <flo-retina> deOmega: anyway, thanks for the kind words, and your continued support :).
15:35:20 <Mic> It certainly works for me but I'm on Instantbird 1.5.
15:36:02 <deOmega> Ah, no problem.  Btw, I am I right that the last  nightly for 1.6 is from January?
15:36:28 <flo-retina> deOmega: sounds right.
15:36:35 <Mic> deOmega: that's the problem that flo is currently working on ;)
15:36:45 --> GeKo has joined #instantbird
15:36:46 <flo-retina> deOmega: we changed our code repository (our code is now developed in the same repository as Thunderbird).
15:37:10 <flo-retina> deOmega: and I'm actually working these days on getting nightlies back in working shapes, now that we fixed all the code issues, I'm looking at the build automation issues.
15:37:19 * nhnt11 wonders how difficult it would be to look at the error console from an a11y point of view
15:37:34 <nhnt11> er, /me wonders how accessible the error console is *
15:38:10 <deOmega> ah.  OK cool.. actually, I was making sure I was on the right site for the nightlies.. after seeing the bug page changed.. so.. awesome.
15:38:41 <flo-retina> deOmega: everything is moving around, as we are getting closed to mozilla servers
15:38:45 <flo-retina> *closer
15:40:19 <deOmega> I have to say... this all really sound exciting.   I am personally very pleased to see such support for the program :)   Have a great day/night.
15:40:38 <deOmega> grammar... bah!  
15:40:38 <Mic> deOmega: you too! :)
15:41:34 <-- deOmega has quit (Quit: So easy...but yet complicated.)
15:41:38 <flo-retina> deOmega: we are excited too! (unfortunately all these moves took a lot of our energy, which means we couldn't work much on new features... but hopefully we'll get summer of code students working on that during the summer :)

16:38:38 <petunia> ok boys, what can we do with is "ignore" addon?
16:40:23 <aleth> petunia: Try updating to the current Instantbird release (1.5) and see if that helps?
16:41:08 <aleth> flo-retina: Did automatic updates to 1.5 not get turned on?
16:41:34 <petunia> ok but, there isn't italian version yet... :(
16:41:47 <aleth> petunia: Ah! Now I understand why you are on 1.4.
16:42:23 <aleth> petunia: The Italian translator got married around the time of the 1.5 release if I remember right, that's why there is no Italian 1.5
16:43:32 <petunia> ohohohohohoho! :)
16:45:41 <aleth> I don't know if you want to try an English 1.5. It may help, but I thought the addon would work with 1.4 too
16:46:21 --> mayanktg has joined #instantbird
16:47:22 <petunia> did somebody try it?
16:47:31 <aleth> petunia: I am just looking at the code.
16:47:40 --> jb has joined #instantbird
16:48:04 <petunia> ok!
16:48:55 <aleth> petunia: The addon definitely won't work with 1.4.
16:49:29 <aleth> So either you use 1.5 in another language, or you have to wait for the Italian 1.6. I'm really sorry.
16:51:51 <aleth> petunia: On the other hand, now you have used Instantbird for a bit, maybe the English 1.5 is not too scary ;)
16:53:30 <petunia> sorry, i don't understand; my english is... so and so

16:54:38 <aleth> petunia: I have looked at the code of the ignore addon and it will not work with version 1.4. So to use the addon, you would have to use 1.5 (not in Italian). Or wait until 1.6 is released (but I don't know when that will be)
16:54:54 <aleth> petunia: Sorry for the bad news
16:57:35 <petunia> ok, ok; i'm going to try using in english... 
16:57:50 <petunia> thank you!
16:58:01 <mayanktg> aleth: Regarding Bug 978461 . 1. we should have a notification when the user uploads any file other than jpg/png. 2. if correct file type then check whether the image is corrupt or not.

17:00:49 <aleth> mayanktg: I think you're right that that's what would be needed. For 1. maybe there is a way to restrict the file picker to jpg/png by default
17:01:04 <aleth> Adding a notification seems too much.
17:01:44 <mayanktg> aleth: yes. I also think so ...but we have to check how to completely disable showing other files.

17:05:57 --> Mic|web has joined #instantbird
17:06:18 * nhnt11 is confused
17:06:42 <nhnt11> Seems like we're already filtering images: https://mxr.mozilla.org/comm-central/source/im/content/blist.js#597
17:06:44 <mayanktg> we have used it in setUserIcon() 
17:06:54 * nhnt11 wonders if he read the logs wrong
17:08:21 <nhnt11> Oh, were you talking about .png/.jpg files which are actually something else that's pretending? :P
17:08:31 <Mic|web> nhnt11: that's also a problem.
17:08:41 <flo-retina> aleth: I think we never turned on fully automatic updates
17:08:55 <flo-retina> but clicking "check for updates" should work; except for Italian :-/
17:08:55 <nhnt11> Alright, I just read the bug report about typing a new pattern
17:09:14 <aleth> nhnt11: So the file picker part is already there, all that's needed is to check whether whatever file is actually returned actually is an image, and that's the tricky part.
17:09:28 <Mic|web> On Windows you can get around the "filter images" filter if you enter *.* in the filename box (and press Enter).
17:09:36 --> jb has joined #instantbird
17:09:38 <mayanktg> nhnt11: i was talking about enabling only image files to be set as user-icon and then also have some feature to detect if a file is corrupt
17:09:50 <Mic|web> The file list will be refiltered to match that pattern (i.e. it shows all files in that folder).
17:10:01 <aleth> mayanktg: I believe the code in the bug tries to do that for prplxpcom at least

17:11:08 <aleth> Mic|web: exactly, it's the same issue.
17:11:22 <-- jb1 has quit (Connection reset by peer)
17:11:57 <mayanktg> aleth: hmm..true. but can we treat them at once?
17:12:11 <aleth> mayanktg: I think so
17:12:20 <Mic|web> mayanktg: I'd say yes. If it can't be converted, it's not a usable image.
17:13:07 <aleth> You try to get the image, and if it's size 0x0 or that fails, you reset to "no icon present"
17:13:19 <Mic|web> hmm, looks like I said the same as above here ;)
17:13:21 <mayanktg> I thought..first we have to filter to image file and then check whether its usable or not.
17:13:53 <mayanktg> aleth, Mic|web ok :)
17:13:54 <Mic|web> "filterImages" is useful but not sufficient.
17:13:57 <nhnt11> I have an idea to do it but it's hacky
17:14:08 <nhnt11> you could create an <img> element out of the file and listen for the error event
17:14:18 <mayanktg> yep...the size idea sounds great :)

19:22:15 <flo-retina> ah, the windows build at least started this time :)
19:22:42 <flo-retina> why is vp8_asm_enc_offsets.asm failing? :-S

19:30:40 <flo-retina> anybody knows a simple hg command I could use to set the default pull URL in a repository's .hg/hgrc with buildbot?
19:31:02 <flo-retina> (or a one-command way to edit a value in a .ini file in python would do too)

21:09:14 <flo-retina> I've just had the strangest delivery ever.
21:09:27 <flo-retina> I bought to chairs on ebay from a company based in London
21:09:54 <flo-retina> a few minutes ago (at 9:50pm) I had a guy knock at my door.
21:10:00 <flo-retina> and they delivered the 2 chairs
21:10:19 <flo-retina> from a large van with the wheel on the right side (so likely coming more or less directly from the UK)
21:11:43 <flo-retina> the guys talked in English (rare in France; nobody around would understand ;))
21:14:11 <flo-retina> what are the chances of finding the right person when knocking at a door at almost 10pm a Saturday night, in a foreign country?
21:14:27 <flo-retina> they had my phone number, I expected a call some time next week :-S
21:16:33 <Mic> Things that they deliver at 10pm on a saturday evening are things that they don't need to deliver on sunday mornings ;)
21:17:09 <flo-retina> Mic: or Monday
21:17:19 <flo-retina> but still, that seems very strange
21:17:38 <flo-retina> why are they even working, and in a foreign country at that time?
21:18:05 <flo-retina> I would have expected the delivery company to put the stuff in a boat, and have other French employees take it over on the other side of the Channel
21:18:46 <flo-retina> the van was almost empty
21:19:01 <flo-retina> after giving me my 2 chairs, only one was left.
21:20:19 <Mic> What if they had called before, asking if they could deliver them around 10pm?
21:20:49 <flo-retina> They would have saved a pointless trip if I wasn't around
21:22:34 <Mic> Maybe they didn't want to risk to be turned down ;)
21:22:46 <flo-retina> or didn't want to pay roaming fees
21:23:09 <flo-retina> I'm not even sure which part of this is the strange part
21:23:32 <flo-retina> (and maybe in their opinion the strange part is a French guy ordering chairs to a company based in London ;))
21:30:13 <-- Suiseiseki has quit (Ping timeout)
21:30:33 <flo-retina> they also didn't ask for any signature. What if I wasn't the right person and just thought "Chairs? sure, give me the chairs.":-D

21:41:39 <flo-retina> I'm stuck with the build error on the linux slave :(
22:08:10 <flo-retina> it looks like an updated version of the patch in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=771588 would fix our Windows failure
22:08:12 <instantbot> Bug 771588 maj, --, mozilla16, rjesup, RESO FIXED, libvpx encoder fails to build with "Too many sections"

23:17:40 <flo-retina> Ok, status update: The issue on Windows is fixed (the current build is already past the point where the previous one). I think my latest tweak to the buildbot config fixed the issue that caused the buildsymbol step to get stuck on the previous mac build. New mac build in progress.
23:18:33 <flo-retina> And for linux, I looked at what SeaMonkey does (it seems their builders are as outdated as ours), and I'm testing some mozconfig changes on our linux slave (but without using buildbot). If that build suceeds, I'll commit these changes.
