X-Face

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Collector»NZ, Apr 2, 2005.

  1. Well I have message faces working
    http://tecwizards.de/mozilla/messagefaces/
    But it only displays in Tbird if the extension is installed so my next
    question is what do you do with Tbird to make it send an X-Face header.

    I have about:config installed so can edit the settings but what should
    they be set to for a x-face header.

    Cant seem to locate anything on the google searches for x-face +
    thunderbird etc.

    Actually, having such a big X-Face is actually quite annoying for
    those of us that have our newsreaders set to view headers - your
    headers now take up almost a full screen, and are well and truly
    longer than any other poster's headers I've come across.

    I wonder if this is classed as a binary attachment, which, of course,
    is against the charter of most groups...

    Do you really need a colour X-Face, considering the majority of
    posters don't see it anyway (other than an annoyingly long binary
    chunk in your header)?

    Whats your problem. The one I am using at the moment is actual not
    colour and if I choose to experiment a bit thats fine either enter into
    the spirit of it or leave it alone.

    It is interesting to note you cruise with full headers on. I will have
    to add a few more x-headers to give you something to read.

    As to against the charter, I seriously doubt it.

    It is not a binary chunk. It is simply another line in the clear text
    headers.

    That post was better, thank you :)

    No need to get your knickers in a twist. I realise that you're just
    playing around, and I don't want to be a drag, but thought I'd point
    out that you're dragging around the following with every post.

    Oh, and shouldn't it be X-Face, rather than just Face ? I don't think
    "Face" is a standard header, meaning it should be preceded by the X.
    Could be wrong, though.

    Actually, another 13 full lines, or around 950 characters.

    And an X-Face is a binary image, represented as ASCII characters, just
    like any other binary image/attachment transmitted over Usenet.

    Actually X-Face is deprecated, the new version is face: but requires a
    decoder extension on board which is why I am looking into how to create
    the appropiate x header in Tbird, but with only limited sucess.

    Sorry I can't help but I did copy your code into my newsreader. It came
    out B & W and when I went to reply to your post your original message was
    like HTML garbage.

    Yep I have created several message faces, a couple of black and whites
    and a couple of coloured ones. The BW work sort of with x-face and the
    colours only with message face extension installed.

    Indeed, the wider question should be "Can Thunderbird or Mozilla send any
    kind of custom headers?"

    Yes because various extensions are able to include them such as Enigmail
    and messagefaces, it is just a matter of getting the right syntax for
    the js.pref file and adding in the necesary.

    From Gravity 2.6 I can't see anything unless I toggle the headers and
    see a mess of code. (I can see Divine's and Kooky's X-face however).

    Yep Thunderbird decodes x-face and you see them if you have the headers
    in normal mode. Now to find out how to get the sent headers to include
    and x-face line.
