OmnomIRC bug for users with a space in their name
« on: May 05, 2011, 01:05:33 pm »
Today my brother was telling me that OmnomIRC didn't work for him, and it wasn't the cache.
So I went to look for the problem, and here is what I found:

Inside the code their is a line which converts your username to base64, and it looks like this with me:
Code: [Select]
userName = base64.encode("jimbauwens");
However, with Stefan (nick is "Stefan Bauwens"), it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
userName = base64.encode("Stefan
Bauwens");
It is divided over 2 lines. This is probably because the space in his name gets somehow replaced with a new line.

Kk. I'll check it when my computer boots up.

Edit: His name had a new line in it. Not sure how, I blame the recovery process.

Ok, then it wasn't a bug.
Thanks for fixing Netham!

I had a similar bug elsewhere too on Omni recently, but I can't remember what.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
