14:14 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: I'm still not quite sure what ldap *is*

14:14 <yoyo[RKN]> run_client starts both?

14:14 <CoderForLife> that would make you expert *not* =)

14:14 <PovAddict> yoyo[RKN]: run_client starts client, run_manager starts manager and maybe also client, I'm not sure

16:00 <PovAddict> you just can't run it on your winduhs box

16:01 <sethy> then why did i get the script source

16:01 <PovAddict> that's not the script

16:01 <PovAddict> when you load that link, it votes

16:01 <sethy> writePoll("funkystuff")

16:01 <sethy> ?

16:01 <PovAddict> yeah, it's to show the poll results on the page, no idea how that JS works

16:01 <PovAddict> I just made a script to load that link repeatedly

16:44 <CoderForLife> as it turns out, the folks over in #ldap were helpful, but not with their direct answers

16:45 <PovAddict> yesterday I asked a question on #eclipse

16:45 <PovAddict> the answer was a link and "enjoy"

16:45 <PovAddict> the link said the website was under maintenance

16:45 <CoderForLife> wonderful

16:45 <PovAddict> "err... I guess I'll have to take that back then"

16:46 *** MTughan has joined #boinc

16:46 <PovAddict> he had to actually take the effort of explaining instead of throwing links...

16:46 <CoderForLife> they stooped to tell me to upgrade versions

16:46 <PovAddict> and as I was told, "##java also seems keen on giving out links and saying READ"

16:46 *** siof has joined #boinc

16:46 <CoderForLife> I asked if my problem had anything to do with version

16:47 <xcamel> 46F here - and "agreed"

16:47 <CoderForLife> they admitted that my problem had nothing to do with version

16:47 <CoderForLife> but upgrade anyway

16:47 <CoderForLife> er, "thanks"

16:48 <xcamel> completely addicted to 'foobilliards'

16:48 <xcamel> wonder if I need 'some sort of program...'

16:49 <CoderForLife> one of their side comments led me to realize that openldap doesn't do schema extension like Sun LDAP - hence it was "operator error"

17:07 <PovAddict> are we trying to talk to them, or just heating up our computers trying to *listen*?

17:07 <PovAddict> I keep wondering - what if ETs have similar things to us?

17:07 <PovAddict> big-ass antennas and distributed computing to try to find signs of intelligence

17:08 <PovAddict> yet nobody *sends* signals to the other

20:39 <infinisoft> I wanted to do some more stuff with it, maybe with mysql based logging of results, been too lazy though :/

20:42 <infinisoft> The rows are supposed to be color coded but yeah, preempted shows along with the tasks actually running

20:46 <MTughan> I gotta figure out how to represent a project or task state...

20:46 <PovAddict> result/active_task/scheduler_state is lines 36-41

20:46 <MTughan> Thinking int to AND together.

20:46 <PovAddict> now, figuring out what the different combinations of states mean... that's your problem

20:46 <MTughan> Mine or infinisoft's?

20:47 <PovAddict> all three of us

20:47 <MTughan> Hehe... I'm just planning on checking the bools.

20:47 <MTughan> Let the other person figure out how to represent them.

20:47 <PovAddict> you can't know if a result is *running* checking bools alone

20:47 <MTughan> At this point, it's a project.

20:48 <MTughan> Haven't gotten to tasks yet.

20:48 <PovAddict> same on my java code

20:49 <infinisoft> I have some other thing that does RPC calls, determines project URL's then authenticates to the results list page to log the CPU time and claimed/granted stuff and throw into a DB

20:49 <PovAddict> result.php and workunit.php should have XML versions...

20:49 <infinisoft> They do?

20:49 <PovAddict> no, but they should :)

20:49 <infinisoft> Oh heh

20:50 <PovAddict> MTughan: public List<Task> getTaskList() { return null; }

20:50 <infinisoft> Its doing HTML scraping, but I don't run that script very much anyway,.

20:50 <MTughan> PovAddict: Filler methods?

20:51 <infinisoft> I have yet to code useful graphs to show it

20:51 <PovAddict> MTughan: it's on the interfaces I did before, but not implemented yet

21:06 <PovAddict> pessimist me says:

21:06 <PovAddict> how much is 0% chance multiplied by 500?

21:06 <MTughan> 0%.

21:06 <PovAddict> "That means we are 500 times more likely to find ET than with the original SETI@home."

21:06 <Tank_Master> :P

21:07 <Tank_Master> but with todays comps we can do it faster!

21:07 <PovAddict> they won't be getting 500 times the computing power...

21:09 <Tank_Master> no, but at least they can find nothing faster now

21:10 <PovAddict> 500 times the white noise

21:11 <Tank_Master> and black noise

21:11 <Tank_Master> (dont be a racest!)
