cool @thoys! Will check it out tomorrow :)
@binaryking @ddobrev wow; let's start a wiki with some of these findings. I'll be sending out an email tomorrow to all the UI devs, seems like a lot of discoveries are being made by various devs and the knowledge should be collected to avoid duplicate work/research.

@problem yeah, that would be awesome!
@ddobrev so, how do you propose to implement the ‘overlay widgets’? I have created a class for this and till now, what I have accomplished is what you see in the video here - https://db.tt/PCjOxhlL
to what I have found, it is impossible to show a QWidget over the QGLWidget, and the only thing we can do is comething like I have done, that is, move the GL view and show the overlay(not technically) widget

Can anyone give a 101 on Metavoxels? Not sure what the metavoxel editor is doing and haven't 100% grokked the metavoxel source yet. I'm assuming the ultimate goal is to attach behaviours / metadata / etc to voxels and allow behaviour items to communicate across server borders using spanners?
Philip Rosedale
@PhilipRosedale
Mar 31 2014 14:22
@brotchie - Metavoxels is a work in progress, not intended to be stable yet. Yes, it will be a way to have more complex attributes attached to voxels as well as things like models that span octree cells. Andrzej is the guy working on it here.

@brotchie Huge thanks for the last used directory change for scripting, much appreciated. That's a feature I've been wanting for a while. Pulled and testing now.

@binaryking See my last comment (starting with 4.) at https://worklist.net/19520. This is what I finally used.

@problem so what do you suggest? go with @ddobrev ’s solution?
Grayson Stebbins
@problem
Mar 31 2014 16:14
I don't know what else we can but that for now, @binaryking
we'll have to wait for the bug fix to get it right

@ddobrev have you tried with Qt 5.2.2, was the bug resolved?
@problem alright
Dimitar Dobrev
@ddobrev
Mar 31 2014 16:22
@binaryking Qt 5.2.2 is not out yet. There is a beta for Qt 5.3 but I don't think it would be of any use because they haven't marked the bug as fixed.

Mar 31 2014 20:04
@ddobrev even though I have QXmpp, the Chat option is disabled in the menu and if I press the Return key, I get to see to chat window

is the firewall set to allow any traffic and deny specific things or the other way around?
Tony Hagale
@thagale
Mar 31 2014 20:15
allow all. the only outbound block we have is 25/SMTP
Stephen Birarda
@birarda
Mar 31 2014 20:15
interesting
okay - I’ll do some more digging
do you get data from the servers
Tony Hagale
@thagale
Mar 31 2014 20:16
i queued the static ports changes for our IT guy for last week but he got confused and backed out the changes...so static ports still aren't configured but i could stay late one of these nights and enable them. that is, unless you want to debug this with the problem in place
Stephen Birarda
@birarda
Mar 31 2014 20:16
can you hear people / see voxels/ see avatars?
that symmetric fix is for the case where you can access the servers but they can’t talk back to you
Tony Hagale
@thagale
Mar 31 2014 20:17
i cannot (at least the last few times i tried). input avatar/voxel/audio bandwidth is 0, never comes off of 0. output for all three looks normal. i cannot see any voxels or avatars, cannot hear anyone. chat works fine, and i can see who is logged in. the only things that render on my screen are the axes, the giant white ball and (strangely) the bucky balls container near @home
Stephen Birarda
@birarda
Mar 31 2014 20:18
ahh - okay
that’s different than the problem I am trying to fix
interesting that you can talk to the DS though
after “Added server …"
do you see “activating public socket for"
Tony Hagale
@thagale
Mar 31 2014 20:26
that's weird...my gitter.im "froze" and wouldn't update...didn't see your last few messages
let me look
several seconds after "Added server" I see:
[2014-03-31T15:07:51] Activating public socket for node "Voxel Server" (V) {b73a9349-b7be-4e69-bfb7-9725a998b01a} 184.169.232.74:52262 / 10.176.33.252:52262
[2014-03-31T15:07:51] Activating public socket for node "Particle Server" (P) {25e97d76-e770-41d7-bba6-edda6f64e031} 184.169.232.74:54440 / 10.176.33.252:54440
[2014-03-31T15:07:51] Activating public socket for node "Voxel Server" (V) {3171f787-65d4-4c2d-872f-2833587229b3} 50.18.8.78:39584 / 10.178.51.78:39584
and one for audio and avatar a little further down, as well
i have to step away to a meeting, now. apologies

hi guys, wondering...is it possible to reopen closed issues?
Stephen Birarda
@birarda
Mar 31 2014 20:45
yep - shold be a button on github
FearghusMcMahon
@FearghusMcMahon
Mar 31 2014 20:47
hmmm I don't see a button to reopen it. I just added a comment to highfidelity/hifi#2215 since i still see that issue happen. But after adding the comment noticed the issue was closed.
Stephen Birarda
@birarda
Mar 31 2014 20:48
hmm - maybe that’s particular to repo/issue owner

@birarda I'm in another meeting, but could potentially test one or two more things before I head home for the day to a different (working) network
Stephen Birarda
@birarda
Mar 31 2014 21:19
hey @thagale
In the middle of something else and I’ll have to do some reading before I have some things we can test
can we touch base later this week?
Tony Hagale
@thagale
