Digit
the answer to the ultimate question of life the universe and everything
waressearcher2
Digit: are you hexadecimal or binary one ?
Digit
i think i'm an ambiguous undefined digit, not necessarily a one, but not rulling it out either. ;)
i might be neither hex or binary\
i might be 42
expressed as a single digit in base 42. ^_^
malide
s/base 42/base 43
42 decimal would be 10 in base 42
b0at
just a smarmy 22 in base 5

The latest thunderbird is broken. It constantly gives errors saying it dropped connection to imap. But there is nothing wrong with my imap server, or my connection. thunderbird is the only program that is having trouble.
I read somewhere that it might be related to folders
but clicking 'repair folder' doesnt help and again, there aren't any other programs having this problem. only thunderbird.
Huh, I fixed it by changing the number of connections to the cache from 5 to 2 under server settings -> advanced
5 was the default
waressearcher2

pretty ure i've nailed it down to quicktime plugin
auscompgeek
oaavi: probably not, quicktime is horrible and nobody really wants to use it or its formats

oaavi
yes

auscompgeek

oaavi

18:51 <> any quicktime alternative plugins?
auscompgeek

oaavi
i want to watch it in browser
without having to watch a stream in vlc or whereever
auscompgeek

oaavi
"a stream"
(Action) takes heart medication
auscompgeek

lzto
Hello, can anyone explain to me how I can start to go about customizing my home page?
auscompgeek
lzto: menu -> preferences -> general
if you mean changing what your home page is
might be called options instead of preferences on windows
lzto
asuscompgeek: Hello, didn't see that reply. I am trying to make a customized start page sort of like this for example http://img11.deviantart.net/007c/i/2011/161/f/c/neonic___firefox_start_page_by_flatmo1-d3ij1pk.png
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't about:home just a html/css file? I am trying to modify it but I'm not really sure where I'd be able to find it
auscompgeek
yeah, about:home is html, but it's part of firefox
you won't be able to simply edit it
you can point your homepage at a different web page though
lzto
Hmm, do you happen to know what most people do? I was thinking maybe just make an offline html file and point it to that?
auscompgeek
also, is "asuscompgeek" in some dictionary that I don't know about? :P
yeah, local html file would suffice
lzto
auscompgeek: alright thanks for clearing that up :). Also, sorry for butchering that name, :P sounds like it happens a lot I read it and thought of asus computer company
auscompgeek
haha
well, apparently "asuscompgeek" is in a dictionary somewhere in the universe, dunno what dictionary that'd be though
syntroPi
Hey guys how can i choose a camera for webrtc in firefox?
auscompgeek
syntroPi: firefox asks you which camera you want to use when a webpage uses webrtc
click the video camera icon at the left of the location bar when that happens
syntroPi
hmm it just uses my microphone, but no camera
is there a specific settings in preferences where i could choose a preferred primary camera?
btw its ff 41 on ubuntu 15.10 (uvcvideo) amd64
i have two cameras (for testing video conferences) via usb, the first was used by chrome (and therefore ff didnt show any camera). i want to set firefox to use the second usb camera to test it
but even when i close chrome it just shows me that one camera i cant choose the other
hence my question: where can i choose which camera firefox uses?
auscompgeek
if a webpage requests for camera, firefox will ask
syntroPi
yes but there is no option to choose _which_ camera to use (or at least im not seeing any).
its just want to allow access: yes/no? -> ok yes i allow
but now i want to choose the second camera connected via usb
in chrome there is that camera symbol where you can click and get a dropdown off all cameras, so you can choose which one to open
so its not possible to choose a specific camera in firefox right now?
auscompgeek
when I click the camera icon, I get asked which camera to share
also which microphone to share
syntroPi
i did not get that question: i just have a camera symbol before the url, when i click that i can revoke the permission to use "my camera"
auscompgeek
ah, seems you can only pick it before you start sharing
syntroPi
pic it where?
*pick
auscompgeek
literally when firefox asks you whether you want to share your camera
syntroPi
ah yeah i got it now, i had to revoke and permit again
thank you that really helped me
though that concept of UI is a bit weird imho: why not allow the user to choose at any point? its confusing when hidden like now...
