11:48 <Tank_Master> morning all ye all

11:53 *** c0dewarrior has quit IRC

11:54 <MTughan> Morn Tank_Master.

11:57 <Tank_Master> I now got 608 credits for tsp!

11:57 <Saenger> and have you seen the salesman?

11:57 <MTughan> mweltin hasn't been here for a while.

11:57 <Tank_Master> ?

11:58 <MTughan> Heh. I have 15 credit.

11:58 <Tank_Master> lol

11:58 <MTughan> And no pending. How long have you been crunching TSP WUs?

11:58 <Tank_Master> since BAM! supported it

11:58 <MTughan> Which was?

11:59 <Tank_Master> just after I clicked to have it find me account...

12:00 <Tank_Master> but I dont know really, 1 or 2 weeks?

12:00 <MTughan> That explains some. I just started crunching about two days ago.

12:00 <Tank_Master> ahh

12:00 <MTughan> That's when I got the Mac client up.

12:01 <MTughan> I seem to remember someone saying that they had ABC WUs that gave them 1K credit. Do you remember how long they were?

12:01 <Tank_Master> depends on the system ;)

12:02 <MTughan> Yeah... 32-bit?

12:02 <Tank_Master> on my core2 around 6h, some longer

12:02 <Tank_Master> 64bit

12:02 <MTughan> Ouch...

12:02 <Tank_Master> but you can get them on 32bit, just takes 2x longer

12:02 <MTughan> I've got one that took 11.5 hours on my 32-bit CD.

12:02 <Tank_Master> 1k for 6h is extreamly good

12:03 <Tank_Master> then its probably a 1k

12:03 <MTughan> Yeah. I've got about 300 for 12h on yoyo.

12:03 <Tank_Master> :)

12:03 <MTughan> &math convert 20000 seconds to hours

12:03 <Romulus> MTughan: 5.55555555556

12:03 <Tank_Master> as soon as TSP's "top participents" page updates, ill probably be #1 there

12:04 <MTughan> &math convert 12 hours to seconds

12:04 <Romulus> MTughan: 43200

12:04 <MTughan> Ugh... my results on ABC.

12:04 <Romulus> Title: Please log in (at

12:04 <MTughan> Nothing near there.

12:04 <MTughan> Oh, can you not see my WUs?

12:05 <Tank_Master> Unable to handle request

12:05 <Tank_Master> nope

12:05 <Tank_Master> noy unless I log into your account...

12:05 <MTughan> Try the computer then.

12:05 <Romulus> Title: Results for computer (at

12:05 <Saenger> results are only viewable for host or one's own userid

12:05 <Tank_Master> whats your e-mail and p/w?

12:05 <Tank_Master> ;)

12:05 <MTughan> No.

12:06 <Saenger> you have to give the host id

12:06 <MTughan> 24404.

12:06 <Saenger> if you could see i see, sorry, been a bit late ;)

12:06 <MTughan> lol

12:06 <Saenger> and even forgot to delete my beginning ;)

12:07 <Tank_Master>

12:07 <Romulus> Title: Results for computer (at

12:07 <Saenger> if results could be seen with userid, hiding puters would be futile

12:07 <MTughan> Damn, you have a lot of WUs checked out.

12:07 <Tank_Master> lots of pending

12:08 <MTughan> Of course, you can blow through them faster, and I have 5 other projects on this computer to do. ;)

12:08 <Tank_Master> haha

12:08 <Tank_Master> I only got ABC 64bit and TSP 64bit on this comp

12:08 <MTughan> ABC, E@H, S@H, TSP, WCG, and yoyo.

12:09 <Tank_Master> heres a 1k WU I did recently

12:09 <Tank_Master>

12:09 <Romulus> Title: Workunit (at

12:09 <Romulus> some database fields that he can get out of "the big bang theory" series

12:09 * MTughan needs to boot his P4 back into BOINC.

12:09 <MTughan> I only have this computer crunching for now.

12:09 <Tank_Master> &math convert 24856 seconds to hours

12:09 <Romulus> Tank_Master: 6.90444444444

12:10 <MTughan> Whoa... You didn't claim it, but it granted it...

12:10 <Tank_Master> the longer the WU, the more it grants

12:10 <MTughan> Well, off to lunch for me.

12:10 <Tank_Master> to meny people were aborting the really long WUs

12:10 <Tank_Master> hf

12:11 <Tank_Master> on that WU?

12:11 <Tank_Master> the other person has the exact same CPU

12:11 <Tank_Master> but its got a 32bit OS

12:12 <Tank_Master> you can see the diference in how long it takes between the 32bit and 64bit

12:12 <BadBarbarian> we know about that dont we tank

12:13 <BadBarbarian> lol when i aborted that wu you were doing

12:13 <Tank_Master> hehe

12:13 <Tank_Master> yep

12:13 <Tank_Master> I remember that, you thought it was a bad WU

12:14 <BadBarbarian> yep

12:14 <BadBarbarian> it was a 24hr wu

12:15 <Tank_Master> man

12:15 <Tank_Master> slow comps

12:15 <Tank_Master> :)

12:16 <BadBarbarian> is vista home premium 64

12:16 <Tank_Master> good

12:17 <BadBarbarian> lol vista home premium is it 64bit

12:18 <Tank_Master> it can be

12:18 <Tank_Master> there is a 64bit avalible

12:18 <BadBarbarian> so my quad could have a 64bit os on it

12:18 <Tank_Master> once SP1 comes out you will have the choice during the install if you want 32bit or 64bit

12:19 <Tank_Master> but for now they are different disks

12:19 <Tank_Master> the one you bought?

12:19 <Tank_Master> most likely not

12:19 <BadBarbarian> yes

12:20 <Tank_Master> OEM are scared of anything that could potentually give them problems, so they dont imbrase 64bit

12:21 <Tank_Master> its just something they dont unerstand :)

12:21 <Tank_Master> if they had their was, 32bit XP would be the ONLY theng they would use

12:21 <Tank_Master> way*

17:33 * freelarry scratches head and remembers when he got rid of his last 5.25" floppy drive - before PovAddict was born

17:33 <freelarry> now trying to find one to read - hopefully - good disks

17:34 <MTughan> I think we had one about three years ago at my school...

17:34 <freelarry> nope couldn't be quite that long ago - probably around 1993 was my last one

17:34 <MTughan> No later than that. Maybe a year and a half.

17:35 <freelarry> hard to find around here - have to go to pc recyclers to get a used one

17:35 <MTughan> brb

17:36 <freelarry> my last 5.25 died or was expunged prior to retiring from navy (1994) k

17:54 <MTughan> 'lo c0dey

18:01 <freelarry> so MTughan you know of anyplace still selling 5.25" floppy drives (new)

18:01 <MTughan> Nope, sorry.

18:02 <MTughan> I may have had one a few years ago, but we've moved off of them now.

18:02 <freelarry> lol yah haven't seen anything for long time here either

18:02 <MTughan> Still have some Win98's in the school though. :P

18:02 <freelarry> i think the only new ones left would be in old repairs stock for some places

18:02 <MTughan> Got rid of all the DOS and Win95 within the past year.

18:03 <freelarry> lol just found my copy of msdos 5.0 and 6.0 upgrade disks here during my cleanup of comp room

18:03 <freelarry> they are 5.25" so can't copy them for PovAddict to play with

18:04 <freelarry> he has windows 3.1 he thought might be interesting to experiment with

18:04 <freelarry> but no dos disks

18:14 <wdsmia> Disco, windows 3.1 and 5.25" drives...some things should be left dead and buried

18:14 <MTughan> True, very true... ME.

18:14 <freelarry> lol graverobbers unite

18:14 <MTughan> WinME, that is.

18:15 <freelarry> hey i remember that one - used it for years

18:15 <PovAddict> sorry to hear that, fl

18:15 <freelarry> much improved over 3.1

18:15 <freelarry> lol

18:18 <MTughan> lol

20:16 <wdsmia> lol .... NO!

20:16 <mweltin> so why a modirator, no offense wdsmia.

20:17 <wdsmia> just to keep the room from getting out of control

20:21 *** benje has quit IRC

20:21 <mweltin> Yeah that PovAddict needs someone to keep him in check.

20:21 <PovAddict> o:<

20:21 <mweltin> sorry PovAddict

20:21 <Romulus> I'm a bit down, first it's win, then mac, then lin

20:21 <PovAddict> Romulus needs someone to keep him in check

20:22 <Romulus> PovAddict: Error: You need to have PySQLite installed to use this plugin.  Download it at <>

20:22 <PovAddict> and to install PySQLite on him

20:22 <PovAddict> ...

20:22 <mweltin> so anyway while you are here, I understand how to link apps with workunits, but how do the custom validator, and assimilator work with differnet apps?

20:22 <PovAddict> look at your config.xml

20:23 <PovAddict> validator and assimilator get an -app switch

20:23 <mweltin> perfect

20:23 <mweltin> all is clear and righ with the world.

20:23 <PovAddict> you wish

20:23 <mweltin> as I saw a great rainbow while during my surface swim yesterday, it reminds me of that.

20:24 <mweltin> during = doing

21:00 <BadBarbarian> i know i hit the wrong icon

21:01 <Tank_Master> oh, and guess how is out on first for TSP...

21:04 *** _Q has joined #boinc

21:05 <mweltin> is it you Tank_Master ?

21:05 <_Q> on, you can see if a project is "alpha", "beta", or "-" (i.e. complete)

21:05 <_Q> is there any other place you can see that information?

21:05 <mweltin> you have some 35 hosts

21:05 <_Q> (i.e. for projects you're already signed up for)

21:05 <mweltin> has boinc stats.

21:05 <_Q> a rosetta@home work unit just failed with a computation error, and I've noticed lately that the application is calling itself "Rosetta Beta 5.81"

21:06 <_Q> it wasn't beta when I started

21:06 <mweltin> sometimes you have to take a step backward, lord knows I did a few times.

21:06 <mweltin> although I never claimed it was stable to begin with.

21:09 <wdsmia> its real stable now... with no work lol

21:10 <mweltin> I'm having trouble keeping up with the WU's

21:11 <mweltin> which, given the last few weeks is GREAT!

21:11 <wdsmia> lol

21:13 <mweltin> ok, I just made some more WU's.

21:13 <mweltin> wdsmia: are you part of TSP?

21:14 <PovAddict> search him

21:14 <wdsmia> my hole one credit of it LOL

21:14 <mweltin> oh nd been around for a while, id 365

21:15 <mweltin> two windows hosts even.

21:15 <mweltin> well all of use here at TSP thank you fo ryour support.

21:15 <mweltin> and by all of us I mean me.

21:16 <wdsmia> rofl

21:17 <wdsmia> Hmm still no checkpointing I see

21:17 <PovAddict> yes it has checkpointing

21:17 <mweltin> I'm chckpting just not status

21:17 <wdsmia> oh ok

21:17 <PovAddict> it doesn't update the progress% but it's saving the state under the hood

21:17 <mweltin> that comes after the validator and assmimilator.

21:17 <PovAddict> I was about to ask when the hell you planned to add that

21:18 <mweltin> well things are going so well I have not decided if I want to move up to a 12 digit sequence or not.

21:18 <mweltin> once its added I'll make all platforms 3.01

21:19 <PovAddict> hmm careful

21:19 <mweltin> having mac as 2.05 and win at 2.06 and linx at I don't know what

21:19 <PovAddict> I'm not sure if BOINC handles more than one digit for the major version

21:19 <mweltin> confuses me

21:19 <PovAddict> so don't run out of numbers :)

21:19 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC

21:19 <PovAddict> btw, make next minor version 2.07 for all platforms to avoid confusion; doesn't matter if you skip the .06 number for some

21:19 <mweltin> I dont' think I will , cause after 3.01 I'll move on to other apps.

21:20 <mweltin> ok, oh and I read your comments on the news.

21:21 <mweltin> honestly I didn't think many people read thoses.

21:21 <PovAddict> it's on the front page, so yeah...

21:21 <mweltin> yeah, I guess so.

21:21 <PovAddict> and other sites may grab the RSS feed...

21:21 <PovAddict>

21:21 <Romulus> <$PT> (at

21:23 <_Q> why does Romulus keep doing that?

21:23 <_Q> every time someone mentions a URL on boincstats

21:23 <mweltin> he does that everytime someone posts a url

21:23 <Tank_Master> its a bot

21:23 <Tank_Master> it was told to

21:23 <_Q> what exactly is the URL it posts?

21:23 <PovAddict> click on it and see...

21:23 <Tank_Master> same one as the line before

21:24 <_Q> I knew it was a bot doing that, just wondered about the purpose

21:24 <Tank_Master> to annoy

21:24 <PovAddict> &help ln

21:24 <Romulus> PovAddict: (ln <url>) -- Returns an version of <url>.

21:24 <PovAddict> ...

21:24 <PovAddict> oh well

21:24 <mweltin> how do I get listed on these stats sites?

21:24 <_Q> what's

21:24 <_Q> ah, I see

21:24 <PovAddict> _Q: go to it and find out

21:24 <mweltin> its not like I tell anyone about this.

21:24 <_Q> yet another tinyurl clone

21:24 <Tank_Master> they add you, mw

21:24 <PovAddict> mweltin: you don't ask stats sites to add you

21:25 <Tank_Master> some of us are addicting

21:25 <mweltin> oh

21:25 <mweltin> so is someone from that site a doing TSP work?

21:25 <PovAddict> mweltin: nowadays, crazy boinc-addicted people find projects, exchange URLs with each other, etc

21:25 <Tank_Master> youd be supprized how quickly google finds new BOINC project

21:25 <mweltin> I think its great, kind of motivates me to do more.

21:25 <PovAddict> stats sites take little time to find them

21:26 <Tank_Master> BOINCStats one one of the sites dedicated to BOINV projetcs

21:26 <PovAddict> you need keywords like "Your account", see this

21:26 <PovAddict> mweltin: see this:

21:26 <Romulus> Title: "Your account - view stats, modify preferences" - Google Search (at

21:27 <PovAddict> that's one query that can find them

21:27 <mweltin> mmmmmmmmmmmm

21:28 <Tank_Master> hehe

21:28 <PovAddict> ah, better one

21:28 <Tank_Master> thought I found a new one with that, but its no longer around

21:28 <PovAddict>

21:28 <Romulus> Title: "Your account" "Participant profiles" "News is available as an" - Google Search (at

21:28 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: Trial V?

21:29 <Tank_Master> ya

21:29 <PovAddict> well try the other

21:29 <Tank_Master> ?

21:29 <PovAddict> try

21:29 <Romulus> Title: "Your account" "Participant profiles" "News is available as an" - Google Search (at

21:29 <Tank_Master> oh, I did, its not on that list

21:29 <PovAddict> STFU BOT

21:29 <Tank_Master> and I didnt see any new ones

21:29 <Tank_Master> I also didnt see AI on either

21:31 <Tank_Master> so it wont catech non-standard BOINC sites

21:31 <Tank_Master> catch

21:31 <PovAddict> AI?

21:31 <Tank_Master>

21:31 <Romulus> <$Pd> (at

21:32 <Tank_Master> and yes, it uses the standard BOINC software, they also have a d/l ling for their source code

21:32 <Tank_Master> link*

21:33 <mweltin> oh I keep meaning to add that (link to code)

21:33 <Tank_Master> :P

21:34 <Tank_Master> might be better for not to have people ask for it

21:34 <Tank_Master> cus its probably changing a lot, right?

21:34 <Tank_Master> now*

21:35 <mweltin> i have a few more changes to make based on curnch3r's advice and the stauts thing.  After that it should be good to go.

21:35 <mweltin> maybe a tweak here and there.

21:36 <Tank_Master> :)

21:36 <Tank_Master> nice

21:36 <Tank_Master> might want to add some light optimizations to it, like SSE

21:36 *** _Q has left #boinc

21:37 <Tank_Master> SIMAP has links to less optimized apps for older comps that do not suppirt SSE

21:42 <Tank_Master> oh, mw... I got over 800 credits now! ;)

21:44 <Tank_Master> is there no 64bit linux yet?

23:16 <MTughan> Pov would be able to tell us...

23:16 <Tank_Master> probably

23:16 <MTughan> I think it's per host.

23:16 <Tank_Master> but I think he's already in bed

23:16 <Tank_Master> sounds like it

23:16 <MTughan> Yes, he is.

23:19 <Tank_Master> mine is a core2d

23:19 <MTughan> So yeah, dual-core.

23:47 <MTughan> I don't. :)

23:47 <Tank_Master> the one over by the zoo is the largest park in the US to be within city limits

23:48 <Tank_Master> I dont get out east much

23:48 <Tank_Master> not unless its on the MAX

23:48 <Tank_Master> :)

23:48 <mweltin_> forest park in on the west side, you can enter it over by burnside, or past the St. John bridge.

23:48 <mweltin_> and a ton of other palces too.

23:49 <Tank_Master> oh, there it is, didnt know it was called forest park

23:49 <Tank_Master> thats still farther north and east than I normally go

23:50 <Tank_Master> when I go hiking, i usually go more in the coastal range or in the gorge

23:50 <mweltin_> I miss good beer. *sigh*

23:50 <Tank_Master> yeah

23:50 <Tank_Master> theres lots of those around here

23:50 <mweltin_> $3 for a can of guiness

23:50 <mweltin_> and they don't give you a break on a 6-pack.

23:55 <mweltin_> Western Samoa is close.  It's much nicer there.

23:55 <mweltin_> yeah there was some talk about getting fiber to the island.

23:55 <MTughan> Be better for a BOINC project.

23:55 <Tank_Master> hehe

23:55 <mweltin_> there is a fiber cable that goes to Austraila about 100 miles out to sea.

23:55 <mweltin_> but  they couldn't get the funding.

23:56 <mweltin_> yeah my project coudl have used the fiber.

23:56 <Tank_Master> r u there just for the scuba?

23:56 <MTughan> Yeah, but as you said they couldn't get the funding. Fiber optic is expensive.

23:56 <Tank_Master> haha, all BOINC projects need a good dose of fiber to stay strong and running

23:57 <Tank_Master> Ive got fiber to my house, you telling me that cant get it to some small and remote island?

23:58 <Tank_Master> just because mine you talk in 100s of feet and yours talks 100s of miles...
