00:24 <efc> I saw some report where some scientist had isolated the part of the brain that is used when choosing candidates

00:24 <efc> it was an emotional piece, not a rational one

00:24 <efc> basically.. a scientific condemnation of the ultimate fate of democracy

00:25 <MTughan> Hmm... Well, new XKCD comic up. New CAD if anyone is interested too.

09:14 <MTughan> Doing pretty good.

09:15 <E-30> cool

09:15 <MTughan> crazy_bus: Okay, yes you can make an account on BURP. Just not from the web interface.

09:20 *** benje has joined #boinc

09:21 <crazy_bus> I tried to join burp though boinc but I got a error MTughan

09:21 <MTughan> Oh...

09:22 <MTughan> I was just able to join it now.

09:22 <E-30> humm

09:22 <MTughan> Not sure what I'm going to do with that... Looks like I've joined another project. :)

09:26 <crazy_bus> hmm. I just tried again and it worked

09:26 <MTughan> Oh... Okay, maybe I haven't joined a new one. BURP doesn't have MacIntel apps.

09:27 <MTughan> Or Mac PPC apps.

09:27 <E-30> lol

09:28 <crazy_bus> why do you need the app anyway.  Why can't you download rendered pictures from a http/ftp site?

09:29 <MTughan> Because that's what actually does the work on your machine.

09:29 <crazy_bus> so boinc isn't the program that does the work?

09:30 <MTughan> BOINC is the program that brings them altogether.

09:32 <crazy_bus> I've got boinc installed and entered the website.  Where do I get the other software?

09:32 <MTughan> It's downloaded automatically by BOINC.

09:33 <MTughan> Should work on your machine. What Linux distro are you running?

09:33 <crazy_bus> kubuntu 6.10

09:34 <MTughan> Well, they say it's Linux/x86, so you should be fine.

09:34 <Romulus> well - it rats you out too - no alfalfa.

09:35 <crazy_bus> how big is the file.  As I can't see anything downloading

09:35 <MTughan> I don't know how big it is. Are you in the Simple or Advanced view in BOINC?

09:37 <crazy_bus> how do you tell?

09:37 *** E-30 has quit IRC

09:38 <MTughan> Does it look similar to this?

09:38 <Romulus> <> (at

09:39 <crazy_bus> nothing like that

09:40 <crazy_bus> lots of tabs and text

09:40 <MTughan> Okay, so you're probably on the advanced view. Kudos to you.

09:41 <MTughan> One of the tabs at the tops should read "Messages". Click on it.

09:41 <crazy_bus> I'm there now

09:41 <MTughan> Do you see any messages about BURP? If so, are any of them related to the platform?

09:42 <MTughan> I see "Message from server: platform 'i686-apple-darwin' not found".

09:43 <crazy_bus> I see them

09:43 <crazy_bus> messages.  But none like what yours says

09:43 <crazy_bus> it justs keeps on saying No work from project

09:43 <MTughan> Okay, take that as good then. You probably have the app.

09:45 <MTughan> Hmm... Looks like there is work.

09:45 <Romulus> Title: Server status page (at

09:45 <crazy_bus> but theres another app I saw in a video.  cats.jar  They used it to access the rendered files as they were completed.  Do you know the purpose of that?  And where you can find it?

09:45 <Romulus> yup only project that becomes the reference project wouldn't need yo sync with us now

09:46 <MTughan> "CATS is the Compact Automated Transfer System used for transfering raw results to users in an easy way as soon as the frames are finishd. CATS is developed in Java to be as cross-platform and easy to use as possible."

09:46 *** c0dewarrior has quit IRC

09:46 *** c0de has quit IRC

09:46 <crazy_bus> so would I need CAT's if I waited until all files were finished?

09:47 <MTughan> It's probably just easier to leave it on your system. Is it not downloaded automatically?

09:47 <crazy_bus> but it's a java file.  And I don't particulary want to install java for just that

09:48 <MTughan> Hmm... Well, that's a harder need to address.

09:49 <crazy_bus> so is there any way to access rendered files without installing java?

09:49 <MTughan> I couldn't tell you. I don't know how BURP works.

09:52 <crazy_bus> I just readded seti but now it won't download work for it either it says: Mon 08 Oct 2007 11:53:44 PM EST|SETI@home|Scheduler request failed: HTTP service unavailable

09:53 <crazy_bus> is that my computers fault or seti?

09:53 <MTughan> Looks like S@H is up and running as normal...

09:54 <MTughan> You can always try to force updating again.

09:55 <crazy_bus> by pressing 'update'  I've done that and I get the same errors

09:56 <crazy_bus> it just started working for some reason.  After failing multiple times (the seti one)

09:58 *** c0dewarrior has joined #boinc

09:58 *** c0dewarrior_ has joined #boinc

09:59 <MTughan> Oh, BURP doesn't have any work.

09:59 <MTughan>     * Waiting: 0 WUs

09:59 <MTughan>     * Validated last 1hr: Stalled (N/A)

10:00 <crazy_bus> hopefully it will soon so I can see if it works.

10:00 <crazy_bus> thanks for all your help

10:27 <crazy_bus> seti@home is now running but 'show graphics' is not working.  Is it meant to?

10:28 <ELGono> if running as system service, this behaviour is normal

10:29 <crazy_bus> I just remembered the windows client coming up with the graphics of the old seti client.  And wondered why nothing happened on the linux version

10:30 <desti_T2> there are no graphics

10:30 <Romulus> from where do I add projectnam.httpd.conf into my conky app...

10:34 <crazy_bus> when was the seti graphics panel removed?

10:35 <MTughan> Hmm... Just noticed in my BOINC too. S@H got HTTP unavailable about 20 minutes ago too.

10:37 <crazy_bus> is boinc data stored in the /home folder.  As I will be reinstalling soon.  But I have my /home on a seperate partition

13:18 <Linuturk> so, I've been running seti@home for a bit

13:19 <Linuturk> and, I've got something called "credit"

13:19 <Linuturk> that implies I can spend that somewhere?

13:19 <MTughan> No, it's just a measure of how much work your computer has done.

13:19 <Linuturk> ah

13:19 *** Saenger has joined #boinc

13:19 <Linuturk> is 200 good?

13:19 <MTughan> Total?

13:19 <Linuturk> for 1 weekend?

13:19 <Linuturk> yeah, total. I just started this Friday

13:20 <MTughan> For one weekend, doesn't sound so bad for one computer.

13:20 <Linuturk> 2 puters . . .

13:20 <Linuturk> ;p

13:20 <MTughan> 2? Well, I'll check my stats...

13:21 <Linuturk> apparently something the writer of the sysinfo script for irssi thought was a qualitative measurment of system stats

13:21 <MTughan> Okay, looks like my 2.0GHz Core Duo Macbook generated anywhere from 200-600 points a day over the weekend.

13:21 <Linuturk> ouch

13:21 <Linuturk> my work puter is a dual core

13:22 <Linuturk> but, it is a windows box

13:22 <Saenger> how much are still pending?

13:23 <Saenger> you don't get the credits asap, but only after validation on most projects

13:24 <Saenger> under the name linuturk?

13:24 <Linuturk> no, jphelps

13:24 <Linuturk> should have put it under Linuturk though

13:25 <Linuturk> :-/

13:25 <Linuturk> yay

13:25 <Linuturk> now it is under Linuturk

13:25 <Saenger> you've got 2 puters:

13:25 <Romulus> <> (at

13:26 <Linuturk> yeah Saenger

13:26 <Saenger> how long are they running per day?

13:26 <MTughan> Okay yeah. 200-400 points sound like something my 2.8GHz P4 WinPC would generate.

13:27 <Linuturk> this linux box is running 24/7

13:27 <Linuturk> windows box is set to idle while I'm working, so sporadic thoughout the day, and all night

13:27 <Linuturk> over the weekend, both should have been pounding away though

13:28 <Saenger> my old athlonXP2200+ made about 220 credits per day under suse9.1

13:29 <Soul_keeper> for some reason seti limits my athlon 2000+ to 1 wu per day,  everytime i try to fetch another one it says i've reached my "quota"

13:34 <Linuturk> old 500mhz and the like

13:34 <Linuturk> but, every bit helps, right?

13:35 <MTughan> For sure.

13:35 <Romulus> I got some amazing star shots from Baja

13:38 <Soul_keeper> how can i remove the 1 wu per day quota on my athlon system for seti ?

13:38 *** roger_ has quit IRC

13:38 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: returning correct results

13:38 <MTughan> Should be set in web prefs.

13:38 <PovAddict> no, that quota is supposed to avoid invalid results

13:39 <PovAddict> if users could "set it", it would be quite useless

13:39 <PovAddict> each wrong result you return (or don't return in time) reduces your quota, each correct result increases it; until it reaches a limit

13:40 <PovAddict> and I think it's something like... wrong result: quota - 1; good result: quota x 2; so should be easy to get back good

13:41 <MTughan> But how often do computers return wrong results?

13:41 <Linuturk> the bigger question is, how do they know they are wrong?! ;p

13:41 <PovAddict> Linuturk: "computation error: segmentation fault" is clearly wrong

13:42 <PovAddict> corrupted output file is clearly wrong

13:42 <Linuturk> oui

13:42 <Linuturk> ;p

13:43 <PovAddict> and also, all workunits are sent twice: if result is way off what the other replication returned, one of the two is wrong, so a 3rd is sent

13:43 <Soul_keeper> ok i reset the project it still don't want to send me any wu's tho

13:44 <PovAddict> it will give you only 1 wu per day? crunch it correctly and your quota will increase

13:44 <PovAddict> link to that host plz

13:46 *** BadBarbarian has joined #boinc

13:47 <freelarry> update the core client?

13:47 <Soul_keeper> maybe the system needs a boinc update

13:47 <MTughan> Update or reinstall, I'd say.

13:47 *** c0dewarrior has quit IRC

13:47 <freelarry> 5.8.11 very old

13:47 <PovAddict> full solution in few words: track that problem down, crunch the single workunit correctly and it will increase your quota a bit, crunch what the small quota increase lets you, and will increase more

13:47 <MTughan> Update then.

13:48 <freelarry> 5.10.21 seems nice

13:48 <MTughan> Isn't it still beta?

13:48 <freelarry> yeah but .20 is stable

13:49 <MTughan> But not for Linux. .8 is.

13:49 <freelarry> ahve .21 on all machines here right now and past week no problems

13:49 <freelarry> PovAddict isn't .21 on ubantu?

13:49 <MTughan> At least it's beta and not alpha.

13:54 <yoyo[RKN]> how often should I create stats? Is every 24h enough?

13:54 <PovAddict> on renderfarm, since I didn't have thousands of users, I made it every 6 hours

13:55 *** c0dewarrior has joined #boinc

13:55 <PovAddict> few users -> not so "expensive" to generate stats often

13:57 <yoyo[RKN]> in tmp is only a empty db_dump.out

13:58 <PovAddict> time ../bin/db_dump -d 2 -dump_spec ../db_dump_spec.xml

14:07 <freelarry> humm just wondering about prime LLR type units - they run in wrapper and have very long times

14:08 <freelarry> seems under .21 they continue to run in memory after boinc says waiting to run

14:09 <freelarry> but shares nicely it seems - cpu time continues to tick up as well as progress and est time doing as they are supposed to

14:09 <freelarry> so not a problems per sey

20:24 <xcamel> probably...

20:24 <MTughan> Not the site blocked. Page content that's blocking it.

20:26 <MTughan> Neither site explains what it is.

20:26 <MTughan> Just that it's a composite window manager. Well, what's that?

20:28 <MTughan> Okay, found some screenshots for Beryl...

20:28 <MTughan> That looks really nice. But yeah, I bet it's as slow as molasses in January on a VM.

20:29 <MTughan> Unless there are accelerated drivers that give it more access to the GPU here.

20:29 <PovAddict> last time I tried, I needed to install something to get usable 2D acceleration

20:29 <PovAddict> Windows inside VM

20:30 <PovAddict> and there was nothing for 3D

20:30 <MTughan> O_O There's a few files for download... Any idea what I want?

20:31 <MTughan>

20:31 <Romulus> Title: (at

20:31 <PovAddict>'ll try installing it on the VM? lol

20:31 <MTughan> Why not? Might as well try. :P

20:31 <PovAddict> :o

20:31 <PovAddict> fedora?

20:31 <PovAddict> might be in the package manager

20:31 <MTughan> What about?

20:31 <PovAddict> yum?

20:32 <MTughan> Oh, never though of that...

20:32 <MTughan> There is actually a graphical installer called pirut.

20:33 <MTughan> Okay, it is there. But just as many files as on the download page.

20:35 <PovAddict> dinner ->

20:36 <MTughan> Oh, that's nice... There is one big package to install everything you need.

20:40 <xcamel> something new:

20:40 <xcamel>

20:40 <MTughan> Nice...

20:40 <xcamel> and

20:40 <MTughan> Where's Rommie?

20:41 <MTughan> lol

20:41 <xcamel> he's there...

20:41 <xcamel> &ping

20:41 <Romulus> pong

20:41 <MTughan> Oh, link titles is off?

20:41 <xcamel> no titles on the graphics

20:41 <MTughan> So? I've posted links to graphics and had him print a title.

20:42 <xcamel> on my sire...

20:42 <MTughan> Actually, just a link to it, but it's still there.

20:42 <xcamel> er site even

20:44 <Soul_keeper> hell i might just hafta get me a ron paul bumper sticker, even tho i don't have a bumper on my truck ...

20:45 <xcamel> get a fred thompson sticker...

20:45 <Soul_keeper> no way

20:45 <xcamel> rp has no chance

20:45 <Soul_keeper> lies

20:46 <xcamel> mr. 2%

20:46 <MTughan> Don't go and murder each other...

20:46 <Soul_keeper> lol much more than that

20:47 <xcamel> for steve schmegel.... he's at .00000000072%

20:47 <MTughan> Oh... Seems Beryl causes X to crash. :(

20:48 <xcamel> beryl isn't meant for VM

20:49 <MTughan> Well, I tried. :P

20:52 <MTughan> Actually, VMware provides a way to accelerate 3D graphics... However, it says that it's not fully supported on the GPU (Intel Integrated GMA950, piece of shit), and might cause the VM to crash. Gonna try it.

20:54 <xcamel> too warm, and way to friggin humid...

20:55 <MTughan> Darn... X still crashes.

20:57 <MTughan> I should really get on installing Fedora 7 on my PC. It has a proper graphics card. Albeit, 3 years old, but it's still a nice card. ATI AIW 9600XT, 128MB RAM.

21:02 <xcamel> linux+ati=trouble

21:03 <MTughan> I've run Fedora 6 on it fine.

21:03 <xcamel> never had good luck with it

21:03 <MTughan> Maybe the older cards have better support then.

21:05 <xcamel> their drivers get mighty stale....

21:05 <MTughan> Who says it's an ATI driver?

21:18 <xcamel> nobody...

21:18 <PovAddict> the OS inside the VM thinks it's a VGA card

21:28 <xcamel> that will always kill it.

21:47 <freelarry> finally got the power strips wired into the box so sometime tonight or tomorrow will start moving machines downstairs

21:48 <PovAddict> raining lots over here

21:48 <xcamel> looks like some more rain moving in...

21:48 <xcamel> 'lo Larry

21:52 *** wdsmia has quit IRC

21:53 <freelarry> lo jay

21:54 <freelarry> guess i need to contact the isp about changing the internet tap to new room - just means the wife will be offline till it happens

21:56 <xcamel> lol

21:56 <xcamel> well...

21:56 <xcamel> off with me...

21:56 * xcamel is away: Gone away for now.

21:56 *** xcamel is now known as xcamel_away

22:00 <freelarry> i see that burp will cause the llc prime units to stop - nothing else has

22:01 <freelarry> at least for what i'm running

22:36 <MTughan> Hehe... Just noticed something. freelarry, you said you'd be changing the Internet tap to the new room, and that means the wifi will be offline. Except you said the wife will be offline. :P

22:36 <PovAddict> nope

22:37 <PovAddict> as I understand it, his wife's computer will be offline until he gets other connection mess sorted out

22:37 <PovAddict> or, typo :P

22:37 <MTughan> One of them. Wifi makes more sense to me though.

22:39 <MTughan> Oh, got Fedora 7 installed on my PC too. It's installing updates right now (220!), but I'll try Beryl after that.

22:42 <MTughan> Actually, some included GNOME 3D effects work right away. Window wobbling, gonna try workspace cube.

22:43 <PovAddict> Ctrl-Alt-DragYourWallpaper

22:43 <MTughan> Thanks. Works find.

22:43 <MTughan> fine*

22:44 <MTughan> Oh, I seem to get slightly transparent titlebars too.

22:44 <MTughan> Hehe... Even menus wobble.

22:44 <PovAddict> move a window half off-screen, and drag cube

22:45 <MTughan> Okay, that's wicked...

22:45 <PovAddict> you could have a video playing there

22:45 <MTughan> Don't happen to have any videos ATM.

22:48 <MTughan> Windows fade in and out too... It's just sweet.

22:52 *** MTugha1 has joined #boinc

22:52 <MTugha1> Not sure why it took off the "n"...

22:53 *** MTugha1 is now known as MTughan_

22:53 <MTughan_> This be pidgin on Fedora 7 on my PC.

22:54 <MTughan> Okay, that's cool... Menus and popups in applications wobble too.

22:57 <MTughan_> Pidgin needs to work on their commands... /leave isn't supported.

22:57 *** MTughan_ has left #boinc

23:00 <MTughan> Whoa! Maximizing a window is cool too!

23:01 <MTughan> Same goes for minimizing.
