15:28 <Romulus> I can't remember the articles i read 'it was like he just 'held the call'

15:28 <PovAddict> multiple lines containing "key:value which can have spaces"

15:28 <PovAddict> I know it because I did the boincerr file for him :)

16:14 <Romulus> here is better than trying to build with both libs, and now is a 0

16:16 <BadBarbarian> how it shaking CFL

16:18 *** Aruzo has quit IRC

16:18 <CoderForLife> shaking like 32F

16:19 <BadBarbarian> i hear you

16:21 <CoderForLife> you hear me shaking?  is it that loud?

16:21 <MTughan> lol, that's a lot of air displaced.

16:23 <CoderForLife> a-yuppa

16:26 * FreeLarry58 thinks more likely BadBarbarian felt the shaking from me driving on a flat tire

16:27 <FreeLarry58> morn all - off to wait for shop to call me when car done - new tires today

16:27 <Soul_keeper> nice

16:27 *** wdsmia has quit IRC

16:27 * Soul_keeper rides used tires, the mexicans install them for 20 bucks a pop :)

16:29 <CoderForLife> do they pop often?

16:29 <FreeLarry58> nope - ran over a screw last night and tires close to end of tread life

16:30 <CoderForLife> looks like they got some thread instead of tread

16:30 <FreeLarry58> so another set of 60K mile tires today

16:30 * FreeLarry58 commuting daily wears them out in 3 to 4 years

16:31 <FreeLarry58> instead of 6 months to a year on used tire

16:31 <Soul_keeper> my used tires seem to last probably half as long as brand new ones

16:31 <Soul_keeper> i get them with atleast half the treads left on them

16:32 <Soul_keeper> next time one blows out, i might be tempted for a brand new set tho,   nothing like having all the same make/model for an even ride :)

16:33 <CoderForLife> bbl

16:35 <quail> back, morning all again

16:50 <FreeLarry58> true Soul_keeper and legally the stores cant sell a used tire if <50% tread left or evidence of abuse

17:06 <xcamel> got a bunch of stuff done today...

17:06 <Romulus> there is just a naming clash with objects, but it's been really quiet over there.

17:07 <FreeLarry58> ?? Romulus crashing into things and keeping quiet about it?

17:07 <FreeLarry58> or calling things names??

18:51 <wdsmia> looks like you slipped a spot there

18:51 <xcamel> couldn't get any damned work..

18:58 <infinisoft> I found svchost.exe to be giving regular spikes of CPU load

18:59 <PovAddict> that's a pain to find what's really causing it

18:59 <infinisoft> Rebooting fixed it but I am curious why windows seems to randomly

18:59 <PovAddict> since each svchost.exe instance inside has a dozen services running

18:59 <Romulus> back up as an "upgrade" is a young man wanting to sandbox BOINC...

18:59 <PovAddict> hard to tell which is causing the spikes

18:59 <infinisoft> I ran process explorer on it and one of the threads kept spending time in UuidCreate function.

18:59 <infinisoft> kernel mode

18:59 <PovAddict> hmm

19:00 <PovAddict> well see, how can you tell what service was on that thread?

19:09 *** Rookie_69 has joined #Boinc

19:11 <infinisoft> Services are DcomLaunch and PlugPlay.

19:12 <PovAddict> turn DCOM off

19:12 <xcamel> always blame it on plug&pray

19:12 <PovAddict> chances are you don't need it, and it has had big security holes in the past

19:56 <PovAddict> Tank_Master_: you don't need therapy

19:56 <PovAddict> Tank_Master_: you need an addiction center

19:56 <Tank_Master_> lol

21:43 <PovAddict> it's barely 0:43

21:43 <KathrynM> What happened to turning off the compy at 12?

21:44 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

21:52 <zombie67> I would be willing to do 6 day WUs, but I think there should be a credit bonus w/o any checkpointing.

21:52 <zombie67> the AI admin keeps saying unix, when he means linux

21:52 <PovAddict> oh and no %progress :) progress starts after the 6 days end (that 'second step' would checkpoint too, as it would be a plain old render)

21:53 <zombie67> you should issue LOTS of warning.

21:54 <PovAddict> hey I'm not even sure if I'm doing this

21:54 <zombie67> boinc Q:  you can still suspend, so long as you have "keep in memory", right?

21:54 <PovAddict> well yeah

21:54 <PovAddict> no checkpoints = no save to disk

21:54 <zombie67> so no problem for me then

21:54 <Romulus> lets go back to sethy

21:54 * Tank_Master_ slaps Romulus around a bit with a large trout

21:54 <PovAddict> technically, it would go to disk if suspended for a while... there's something called swap :)

21:54 <PovAddict> but that's your OS, not BOINC :)

21:55 <PovAddict> ok I just finished flooding their forums

21:55 <zombie67> but BOINC won't normally change tasks w/o checkpoints
