00:08 *** Wabbit98 has joined #boinc

00:13 <zombie67> if LHC still has a limit, I cannot find it

00:13 <Tank_Master> 20

00:13 <Tank_Master> or so mine said

00:14 <Romulus> I'll take what I have to get off my thumb drive*

00:14 <zombie67> it was 10 per thread, up to 4 threads

00:14 <zombie67> to a dual core could get 20

00:14 <Tank_Master> and I have 2 threads

00:14 <zombie67> a quad 40

00:14 <Tank_Master> so 20

00:14 <zombie67> a 8-way also 40

00:14 <zombie67> but!

00:15 <zombie67> my 8-ways have not topped out yet.

00:15 <Tank_Master> huh

00:15 <zombie67> every time they ask, they get more

00:17 <wdsmia> well dont complain :P

00:17 <zombie67> not at all.  just trying to understand

00:17 <zombie67> pov says the 24 hr clock starts from when the first wu is sent

00:18 <Tank_Master> or bragging

00:18 <wdsmia> well we all know pov can never be wrong lol

00:18 <Wabbit98> never

00:19 <Tank_Master> lol

00:19 <MTughan> &cad

00:19 <Romulus> http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/comic.php

00:20 <zombie67> he was wrong once.  I remember it was raining that day

00:21 <Tank_Master> lol

00:25 <zombie67> did anyone else catch any of the 24 hours of datona?

00:25 <Romulus> I heard it was a good thing

00:35 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

00:38 *** MacG has joined #boinc

00:38 *** MacG_ has quit IRC

00:41 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

00:42 <zombie67> PS3 is pretty consistent at yoyo:  http://boincstats.com/stats/host_graph.php?pr=yoyo&id=2080

00:42 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T6a> (at boincstats.com)

00:42 <zombie67> ~2400/day

00:43 <zombie67> the short day on the 23rd was due to internet access down overnight

00:43 <Romulus> dont know how the BOINC wiki at boinc.berkeley.edu.

00:43 <Soul_keeper> that's just one PS3 ?

00:43 <Soul_keeper> that's quiet a bit of credit

00:43 <zombie67> yeah

00:44 <zombie67> if the app is written to use the SPEs, one PS3 = 16 single core opterons

00:44 <Soul_keeper> giving nearly twice the credit as my c2d and p4 ....

00:44 <Soul_keeper> http://boincstats.com/stats/boinc_user_graph.php?pr=bo&id=792353

00:44 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/zyo> (at boincstats.com)

00:45 <zombie67> both yoyo and PS3GRID have apps that use SPEs

00:45 <zombie67> well WCG is just "okay" wrg to credits.

00:45 <zombie67> are you using an optimized app for seti?

00:46 <Soul_keeper> what's the yoyo homepage ?

00:47 <Soul_keeper> zombie67, yes i am

00:47 <MTughan> http://www.rechenkraft.net/yoyo/

00:47 <Romulus> Title: yoyo@home (at www.rechenkraft.net)

00:48 <zombie67> The next Bond song...  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnJ0xGK8dC4

00:48 <Romulus> Title: YouTube - Bitter:Sweet - Dirty Laundry (at www.youtube.com)

00:49 <zombie67> sk:  You are using an optimized app with seti, on a C2D, and are that low?  what is your resource share?

00:51 <Soul_keeper> 100%

00:51 <zombie67> no it's not

00:51 <Romulus> briareus, I dont know if we'll ever get work if I could blow allot of dust of Duke Nukem...

00:51 <Soul_keeper> i'm running unoptimized wcg tho with like 50% of the time

00:51 <zombie67> what is your resource share for seti?

00:52 <Soul_keeper> 35%

00:52 <Soul_keeper> hmmm

00:52 <Tank_Master> 59456%

00:52 <zombie67> ah!  35/65  seti/wcg?

00:52 <Soul_keeper> well   15% einstein, 35% seti, 50% wcg   but einstein has been suspended for like 2 months ...

00:53 <Wabbit98> 100% for every project

00:53 <Soul_keeper> seti still produces 30% more credits ...

00:53 <zombie67> okay, so really 41% seti, 59% WCG

00:53 <zombie67> what OS?

00:53 <zombie67> linux

00:53 <Soul_keeper> linux

00:54 <zombie67> still, seems low

00:54 <zombie67> any OC?

00:54 <Soul_keeper> of course

00:54 <zombie67> then very low

00:54 <zombie67> on 24/7?

00:54 <zombie67> any gaming?

00:55 <Soul_keeper> the c2d is 24/7  i game on the P4 no more than an hour or two a day ...

00:55 <Soul_keeper> so basically fulltime boinc on both

00:56 <zombie67> for example, my core duo (not C2D!) mac laptop topped out at 1323 RAC on SETI.

00:57 <Soul_keeper> yeah i'm getting cheated somewhere ...

00:57 <zombie67> here's what I dont get

00:57 <zombie67> 41% seti, 59% WCG

00:57 <zombie67> per resource share

00:57 <zombie67> but!

00:57 <Soul_keeper> and seti is producing 60% of my credits with that resource shares

00:58 <zombie67> 59% seti, 41% WCG for the last month.

00:58 <Soul_keeper> yeah

00:58 <MTughan> Here's the machine on SETI: http://boincstats.com/stats/host_graph.php?pr=sah&id=3058808

00:58 <zombie67> seti should be higher with opt app.

00:58 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T6n> (at boincstats.com)

00:58 <MTughan> 700 RAC.

00:58 <zombie67> show me the machine on the seti site

00:59 <Soul_keeper> i got that cpu overclocked to 3GHz btw

00:59 <MTughan> I believe these are his machines: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?userid=8246613

00:59 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T6p> (at setiathome.berkeley.edu)

01:00 <Soul_keeper> yeah that's them

01:00 <MTughan> You got a 1.8GHz C2D overclocked to 3.0GHz?!

01:00 <zombie67> seti is not very cache-sensitive, so an OC 4300 should do very well

01:00 <Soul_keeper> :)

01:00 <Soul_keeper> and my P4 is overclocked to 3.2GHz

01:00 <MTughan> That's a big jump...

01:00 <Tank_Master> man, I wish myspace had more songs

01:00 <Soul_keeper> yeah the c2d is a great overclocker

01:00 <Tank_Master> dosent have the one I want

01:00 <MTughan> Well, 2.8GHz to 3.2 isn't big. I've done that.

01:01 <Tank_Master> Zombie Nation - Rernkraft (mayday remix)

01:01 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T6r> (at setiathome.berkeley.edu)

01:01 <Wabbit98> anyone what is wrong with NQueens?

01:01 <zombie67> one core????

01:01 <zombie67> TM, say what?

01:02 <Tank_Master> myspace dosent have much from Zombie Nation (a techno bacd)

01:02 <Tank_Master> band*

01:02 <zombie67> ah

01:03 *** Wabbit67 has joined #boinc

01:03 <zombie67> heh, macs are still kicking ass on seti.

01:03 <zombie67> ;)

01:04 <Tank_Master> lol

01:05 <Soul_keeper> hmmmm

01:05 <zombie67> looking for another similar machine, hang on

01:06 <Soul_keeper> http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=3765567      that is not my machine

01:06 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T6u> (at setiathome.berkeley.edu)

01:06 <Soul_keeper> http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=211946174

01:06 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T6v> (at setiathome.berkeley.edu)

01:06 <zombie67> I don't think you are using a current app

01:06 <Soul_keeper> they have somebody elses' machine on my list

01:08 <zombie67> when did you last update your app?

01:08 <zombie67> and which version(s) did you use?

01:10 <zombie67> CRAP!

01:10 <Tank_Master> vut?

01:10 <zombie67> I just hit the 40 WU limit on LHC

01:10 <zombie67> it still exists

01:11 <zombie67> damn!  my dog has some WICKED farts!

01:11 <wdsmia> asks zombie67 to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

01:11 <Romulus> preparing to switch servers - send web traffic, ftp stuff and e-mail back to bed.

01:12 <zombie67> in that case, my yoyo share is going back up

01:13 <zombie67> I think I lost SK

01:13 <Soul_keeper> it's ok

01:14 <Soul_keeper> i logged into my account and the right hosts are showing

01:14 <zombie67> when did you last update your app?

01:14 <zombie67> and which version(s) did you use?

01:14 <Soul_keeper> let me check

01:15 <Soul_keeper> http://lunatics.kwsn.net/index.php?module=Downloads   i'm using these ones, shouldn't be more than a few weeks old

01:15 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1NsQ> (at lunatics.kwsn.net)

01:15 <zombie67> heh

01:15 <zombie67> WHICH ones?

01:15 <zombie67> do you have 32 or 64 bit linux?

01:15 <Soul_keeper> http://lunatics.kwsn.net/index.php?module=Downloads;catd=25    32-bit

01:15 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T72> (at lunatics.kwsn.net)

01:16 <Wabbit67> hmmm

01:16 <zombie67> ok, which of those did you put on your C2D?

01:16 <Soul_keeper> hmmmmm i'm not seeing it anymore

01:17 <Romulus> so 129 float 239 int @900MHz then 456 float 847 int @630

01:17 <Soul_keeper> only seeing the 64-bit c2d one there now

01:17 *** MacG has quit IRC

01:17 *** MacG_ has joined #boinc

01:19 <zombie67> look at the name of the file in your seti folder

01:19 <Soul_keeper> yeah it's 5.15

01:20 <Soul_keeper> setiathome-5.15.i686-pc-linux-gnu

01:20 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

01:20 <zombie67> ???

01:20 <Soul_keeper> what ?

01:20 <zombie67> nm

01:21 <zombie67> yep, that's right

01:21 <Soul_keeper> dated 08/26/07   guess even if it's the same version things could have changed ...

01:21 <zombie67> no

01:21 <MTughan> I've got 5.28 on my Mac.

01:21 <zombie67> heh

01:21 <zombie67> alexkan =! lunatics

01:21 <zombie67> alexkan = faster!

01:22 <zombie67> ;)

01:22 <zombie67> Sk, not sure what to say then

01:22 <zombie67> you have the right app

01:22 <Soul_keeper> i know

01:23 <zombie67> only way to be sure:  bleed out wcg, run seti 100% for a about 3 weeks

01:23 <Soul_keeper> i've done that before

01:23 <zombie67> wcg is a, er, poor credit project.

01:24 <Soul_keeper> got about 2900 average per day

01:24 <zombie67> !

01:24 <zombie67> shounds about right

01:24 <zombie67> sounds

01:24 <Soul_keeper> can't remember if i had my other c2d up for that tho ...

01:25 <zombie67> so, 41% of 2900 = 1421

01:25 <Soul_keeper> wcg got about 1000 average i believe

01:26 <Soul_keeper> and e@home was about the same as seti

01:28 <Soul_keeper> http://boincstats.com/stats/user_stats.php?pr=sah&date=1131840000&st=0#1      lol i'm number 1 for my signup day :)

01:28 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T7:> (at boincstats.com)

01:28 <zombie67> "wcg got about 1000 average" is that with both machines, 100% WCG?

01:28 <Soul_keeper> yes

01:28 <Soul_keeper> wcg don't even give half the credit as other projects

01:29 <Soul_keeper> i let each project run for 1 month at 100% to test

01:29 <Soul_keeper> wcg results were extremely sad

01:29 <zombie67> 59% of 1000 = 590

01:29 <zombie67> 41% of 2900 = 1421

01:29 <zombie67> you should end up at 2011

01:30 <zombie67> so what's up?

01:30 <Soul_keeper> my athlon 2000+ is down ...

01:33 <Soul_keeper> it had over 1yr uptime running boinc 24/7 then the power went out a few months ago and i never turned it back on

01:39 <Soul_keeper> hmmmm i bet wcg gives better credit on recent athlons ...

01:39 <Soul_keeper> can anyone confirm this ?

01:40 <zombie67> I cannot

01:41 <zombie67> stay from one of the projects...

01:41 <zombie67> lemme look

01:42 <zombie67> HCC, I think

01:42 <zombie67> serious bogging of CPU

01:42 <zombie67> http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread?thread=17244

01:42 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T7M> (at www.worldcommunitygrid.org)

01:42 <zombie67> brb

01:42 <Tank_Master> only on 8way though, right?

01:43 <zombie67> no, on every multi-core box, it happens

01:44 <zombie67> at least as of 12/25/07

01:44 <zombie67> your 8-way!?

01:45 *** Bad_At_Home has quit IRC

01:46 <zombie67> back

01:46 <zombie67> sorry, misread, you meant only on any(one's) 8-way

01:49 <zombie67> wow that thread went on for 5 pages (200+ posts), and got so heated they locked it just today.

01:50 <Tank_Master> lol

01:50 <Tank_Master> heated about what?

01:51 <zombie67> people blaming WCG for not getting off their asses and fixing crap apps that waste resources/

01:52 <zombie67> okay, what is 17:27 from now, UTC?

01:52 <zombie67> HH:MM

01:52 <zombie67> that is when one of my machines can get more work

01:53 <Tank_Master> 10:27?

01:53 <Romulus> warmed up but still pretty noobish, and I can broadcast music to my router issues

01:53 <zombie67> is that a guess, or the answer?

01:53 <Tank_Master> yes

01:53 <zombie67> hah!

01:53 <MTughan> Hold on...

01:53 <MTughan> I say 00:20 UTC.

01:54 <zombie67> currently 06:53

01:54 <zombie67> MT is right

01:54 <zombie67> shit

01:54 <wdsmia> asks zombie67 to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

01:54 <zombie67> oops!

01:54 <MTughan> lol

01:54 <zombie67> sorry

01:54 <zombie67> so!

01:55 <zombie67> either it is a coincidence, or wdsmia is right and pov is wrong

01:55 <MTughan> 'Bout?

01:55 <zombie67> lhc has a wu/day limit

01:56 <zombie67> pov said the clock starts when you get the first wu

01:56 <MTughan> I would think it's midnight.

01:56 <MTughan> Sounds easier to manage.

01:56 <zombie67> wdsmia said it was midnight utc

01:56 <quail> U.S. spy satellite expected to crash back to Earth soon >>> http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20080128.wsatellite28/BNStory/International/home

01:56 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T7a> (at www.theglobeandmail.com)

01:56 <zombie67> I of course sided with pov (he who must be worshiped)

01:57 <zombie67> ;)

01:57 <zombie67> superlink finally fixed their osx/intel app!

01:58 <Tank_Master> nice

01:58 <Wabbit67> about damn time

01:58 <MTughan> Superlink?

01:58 <zombie67> that's a blue project

01:58 <Tank_Master> http://cbl-boinc-server2.cs.technion.ac.il/superlinkattechnion/

01:58 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1IxE> (at cbl-boinc-server2.cs.technion.ac.il)

01:58 <MTughan> Thanks...

01:58 <Tank_Master> np

01:59 <MTughan> Heh, quail: Didn't even notice the link was from the Globe and Mail.

01:59 <zombie67> crappy BOINC client behavior:

01:59 <zombie67> so your machine has the last 4 LHC (of 40) to crunch

02:00 <Romulus> we tried that one

02:00 * Tank_Master slaps Romulus around a bit with a large trout

02:00 <zombie67> but the server has told it that no more new stuff for 17 hours

02:00 <Tank_Master> &exit

02:00 <Romulus> I don't have a clue, Tank_Master.

02:00 <zombie67> so the final 4 WUs won't get turned in for 17 hours.

02:01 <Tank_Master> lol

02:01 <MTughan> &quit

02:01 <Romulus> MTughan: Error: You don't have the owner capability. If you think that you should have this capability, be sure that you are identified before trying again. The 'whoami' command can tell you if you're identified.

02:01 <MTughan> >_>

02:01 <zombie67> who am I, and why am I here?

02:02 <MTughan> &whoami

02:02 <Romulus> MTughan: I don't recognize you.

02:02 <Tank_Master> lol

02:02 * MTughan hits Romulus with a huge axe

02:02 <MTughan> &whoami

02:02 <Romulus> MTughan: I don't recognize you.

02:02 * MTughan kills Romulus with a large whip

02:02 <MTughan> That oughta do it...

02:02 <MTughan> &ping

02:02 <Romulus> pong

02:02 <MTughan> Damn...

02:02 <Tank_Master> &whatis Romulus

02:02 <Romulus> Tank_Master: Error: No factoid matches that key.

02:03 <Tank_Master> &whotis Romulus

02:03 <Romulus> I don't have a clue!

02:03 <Tank_Master> ha!

02:04 <Wabbit67> you don't have to go home, but you cannot stay here

02:04 <MTughan> I can't stay either, 2AM.

02:04 <zombie67> I love that quote!

02:04 <zombie67> used in futurama too

02:05 <zombie67> night MT

02:05 <MTughan> Date on Omicron Persei VII: January 1st, 3000

02:05 <MTughan> http://michaelsprogramming.home.dyndns.org/istatmenus.png

02:05 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T7f> (at michaelsprogramming.home.dyndns.org)

02:06 <MTughan> Picture's a few days old, but it shows fine...

02:07 <zombie67> is that an ical i can subscribe to somehow

02:07 <zombie67> ?

02:07 <MTughan> What, the time for Omicron Persei 8?

02:08 <MTughan> http://www.islayer.com/index.php?op=item&id=28

02:08 <Romulus> Title: iSlayer.com (at www.islayer.com)

02:08 <zombie67> that is istat

02:08 <zombie67> I use menumeters

02:09 <MTughan> iStat Menus. That's where it comes from.

02:09 <MTughan> It's a screenshot of the date menu.

02:09 <zombie67> but is there an ical calendar for futurama I can subscribe to?

02:09 <MTughan> Not that I know of.

02:09 <zombie67> is istat better?

02:09 <MTughan> I don't know, I haven't used MenuMeters.

02:09 <zombie67> MM is free.  try it!

02:10 <zombie67> it's all in the tool bar

02:10 <MTughan> So is iStat.

02:10 <zombie67> so you can see it always

02:10 <MTughan> I think I did try it once...

02:10 <MTughan> Or look at it, I mean.

02:11 <MTughan> http://michaelsprogramming.home.dyndns.org/menubar.png

02:11 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T7k> (at michaelsprogramming.home.dyndns.org)

02:11 <zombie67> you like iStat?

02:11 <MTughan> I like iStat. That shows what I have.

02:11 <Romulus> ovidiu: Could be permissions issues.

02:12 <zombie67> I'll give it a test spin.  But it will have to just about blow me to beat MM, if it want $$

02:12 <MTughan> From left to right: BOINC, GrowlTunes, Fan Speed, CPU Temp, Mem Usage, CPU Usage, Spaces, Bluetooth (iStat), AirPort, Sound, Battery, Date/Time (iStat), Spotlight.

02:12 <MTughan> They don't want $$.

02:12 <MTughan> They'd like donations, but it's freeware.

02:13 <zombie67> ah, then a real head to head

02:14 <MTughan> Okay, wasn't sure if it was uninstallable for a sec there...

02:14 <MTughan> It is.

02:14 <zombie67> no network i/o

02:14 <zombie67> ?

02:14 <zombie67> nm

02:14 <MTughan> Uh, I thought there was...

02:14 <zombie67> it is

02:14 <MTughan> Yeah.

02:14 <zombie67> ok, i'll try it out

02:15 <MTughan> Cool.

02:15 <MTughan> The only thing that would kill iStat just from requirements is that iStat requires 10.4. MenuMeters supports 10.2+.

02:17 <MTughan> Oh, and iStat isn't open-source.

02:28 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

02:29 <MTughan> zombie67: Any consensus yet?

02:30 <MTughan> Nvm, I'll hear from you tomorrow.

02:31 <Romulus> thats only 5.95 a min

02:32 <zombie67> back

02:32 <zombie67> still there?

02:32 <MTughan> Sort of...

02:32 <zombie67> heh

02:32 <zombie67> so, on my mac pro, no benefit that I can see

02:32 <zombie67> I use only cpu mem nw

02:33 <zombie67> MM gives me the same thing

02:33 <zombie67> on my laptop

02:33 <zombie67> it would be nice, if I only wanted to monitor heat and fans

02:34 <zombie67> but smcfancontrol allows me to do more \

02:34 <zombie67> so there too I will stick with MM and smcfancontrol

02:34 <MTughan> Yeah, although I'm not sure how safe smcfancontrol is...

02:34 <zombie67> also, with MM, I can change the lenght of the graphs

02:35 <MTughan> All right, sounds good. I'm not trying to coerce you or anything.

02:35 <zombie67> no!

02:35 <zombie67> I had been wanting to try it out

02:35 <zombie67> but thought it was share ware

02:35 <MTughan> Ah...

02:35 <zombie67> good to know it's not

02:35 <zombie67> how to uninstall?

02:36 <MTughan> I don't think anything from iStat is shareware...

02:36 <zombie67> ah, right there

02:36 <MTughan> That's faster than me typing it...

02:36 <MTughan> Anyway, I need to kick myself to bed... Night.

02:36 <zombie67> night

04:17 *** andresgr has joined #boinc

04:17 <clusty> :D

04:17 <clusty> well it has to do with the boinc assimilator

04:17 <clusty> how can I get access to the input files that were sent to the cruncher

04:17 <clusty> so I can figure out if computation is bogus

04:19 <clusty> FreeLarry58, not sure if you can really help me with it

04:19 <clusty> i can keep the info myself but not very cool to do boinc's work

04:19 * FreeLarry58 tries to pry hands away from throat for making offer -- must apologize as know nothing about server side

04:20 *** andresgr__ has joined #boinc

04:20 <FreeLarry58> i see you going to definitely speak with project managers on that one clusty

04:21 <FreeLarry58> haven't sen anything flash by me on the boards about that particular item so nothing in head to rattle around

04:21 <clusty> nice of you to offer D:

04:22 <clusty> its probalby a classic RTFM :D

04:22 <clusty> but the boinc doc aint the greatest

04:22 <FreeLarry58> sounds like it but also insights are always helpful too

06:34 <Kathryn> Kids were amused this morning.  We had snow on the ground.

06:35 <clusty> and you were playing war?

06:35 <Kathryn> I was telling on 6 year old that last winter we had snow that would have come over his head.

06:35 <clusty> :D

06:35 <Kathryn> heh.  not enough snow to do anything with.

06:35 <Kathryn> I haven't uploaded them to my photo space yet.

06:35 <clusty> i was in an international univ

06:36 <clusty> the coolest thing was to see the look on the face of a bunch of ppl from warm countries

06:36 <clusty> that saw snow for first time D:

06:36 <Kathryn> lol

06:36 <clusty> to us yetti people snow is something common

06:36 <clusty> back in 20min

06:37 <Kathryn> k

06:37 <clusty> hungry for some foodies

06:37 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1T+U> (at public.fotki.com)

06:37 <Kathryn> This was 2 winters ago.  Slightly more snow than we got last night.

06:50 <hawmps> snowball-fight-day!!!

06:50 <hawmps> we're just going to get rain

06:50 <hawmps> :-(

06:51 <Kathryn> Pictures are fine with me, thanks.  I don't miss Cleveland winters, that's for sure.

06:53 <clusty> Kathryn, so you're from cleveland?

06:53 <Kathryn> Yup.

06:53 <clusty> back btw

06:53 <clusty> :D

06:53 <Kathryn> wb

06:53 <clusty> i have a cousin there

06:53 <clusty> he said like 10 years ago some river cought fire :D

06:53 <clusty> caugt*

06:54 <clusty> true or is it an exaggeration?

06:54 <Kathryn> true

06:55 <Kathryn> in the 70s though

06:55 <Kathryn> The Cuyahoga was so polluted it burned :/

06:55 <Kathryn> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuyahoga_River

06:55 <Romulus> Title: Cuyahoga River - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)

06:55 <Kathryn> I take that back.  1969.  Before my time.

06:57 <clusty> yaiks

06:58 <clusty> i will go there this year prolly

06:58 <clusty> been talking for a long time to go visit

06:58 <clusty> i have quite a grim image of cleveland

06:58 <Kathryn> It's actually quite a nice place to live.

06:58 <clusty> like detroit in movies

06:58 <Kathryn> Downtown has undergone a whole lot of changes in the last 20 years.

06:59 <clusty> kinda like european cities better

06:59 <clusty> way less practical

07:00 <clusty> traffic is a mess

07:00 <clusty> but all those old buildings give it a charm

07:00 <Kathryn> It was weird moving from Cleveland to Austin.  Austin is a relatively new city as compared to Cleveland.

07:02 <clusty> austin tx?

07:02 <clusty> the only major american city i've seen extensively is LA

07:03 <Kathryn> Yeah.  I went to grad school there.

07:03 <clusty> and its an understatement to call it not preety

07:03 <clusty> ucla is great though

07:03 <clusty> ever been to big bear?

07:03 <Kathryn> Nope.

07:04 <clusty> its best looking place i have ever seen

07:04 <clusty> i would sell my soul to live/work there

07:04 <clusty> was in big bear for like 6 months

07:04 <Romulus> <Rookie_69> We have lighting faders.

07:05 <Kathryn> Looks beautiful.

07:06 <clusty> summer lots of hiking and rowing on the river

07:07 <clusty> winter skiing till you drop dead

07:07 <clusty> i could not wish for anything else

07:07 <clusty> also no major city nearby

07:07 <clusty> and kinda seccluded

07:07 <Kathryn> Sounds perfect to me.

07:08 <clusty> its a weird place: over the mountain is death valley

07:08 <clusty> drive 40min you get to death valley

07:08 <Kathryn> wow

07:08 <clusty> and here is snowy till june

07:09 <clusty> cant understand how

07:09 <clusty> so what projects you are contributing to?

07:10 <Kathryn> currently...

07:10 <Kathryn> Einstein, PrimeGrid, LHC, Pirates, Maleria Control, AI and MindModeling.

07:10 <Kathryn> Oh yah, and DepSpid when they have work.

07:11 <Kathryn> I bounce around a lot.

07:11 <Kathryn> I have a seriously limited attention span :)

07:11 <clusty> pirates?

07:11 <Kathryn> Which is probably why I lost interest in Seti classic pretty quickly.

07:11 <clusty> i kinda liked einstein cause of their screensaver

07:11 <Kathryn> http://pirates.spy-hill.net/

07:11 <Romulus> Title: Pirates@Home (at pirates.spy-hill.net)

07:12 <Kathryn> The old test bed for Einstein.

07:13 <clusty> so whats exactly the purpose of this project?

07:13 <clusty> pretesting other projects?

07:13 <clusty> before they get released?

07:14 <Kathryn> Doing mostly testing of the graphics stuff.

07:14 <Kathryn> Eric has a lot of documentation to help new users and administrators get set up too.

07:14 <Kathryn> He's been generously helping me get started with Fedora.

07:14 <clusty> great i should join up

07:14 <clusty> :D

07:15 <Kathryn> come join the fun.

07:15 <Kathryn> We just had a batch of work today.

07:15 <clusty> damn, my linux client is buggered

07:16 <Kathryn> ouch.  I'm no help.

07:16 <clusty> lemme see if i cant patch it quickly

07:17 <clusty> i have the crippled project bound client i did

07:18 <clusty> blah

07:18 <clusty> not working

07:19 <hawmps> lots of lhc work still streaming in

18:02 <PovAddict> KathrynM: you should get on those computers and change them to limited users

18:02 <KathrynM> Hey PovAddict, how did you install BOINC in your Ubuntu partition?

18:02 <KathrynM> They're beyond hope.  I'd have to reinstall Windows first.

18:02 <PovAddict> hmm... I don't remember... I think I compiled it myself, without manager of course

18:03 <KathrynM> Any idea how .deb packages handle the logs?

18:03 <KathrynM> Do they keep the logs at all?

18:03 <CoderForLife> I'm going to go sit on the couch and Code my new workflow engine, and watch the Florida election results

18:06 <FreeLarry58> KathrynM i have installed the ubantu package on two machines using fedora8 x86_64 - it works

18:07 <FreeLarry58> only exceptions appear to be burp and pirates having problems with a shared lib

18:07 <KathrynM> I'm interested in people who've used the repositories or a .deb

18:07 <KathrynM> Here's our current problem.

18:07 <KathrynM> the rpm Eric has been working on uses log rotate to manage the logs (captured from the daemon output)

18:08 <PovAddict> link me to a deb, I can inspect it from here

18:08 <KathrynM> To do this, logrotate needs to stop/start the daemon

18:08 <PovAddict> (7-zip can extract them)

18:08 <KathrynM> If BOINC was shut down when logrotate runs, it gets started again.

18:08 <KathrynM> I don't have a .deb.

18:08 <KathrynM> Lemme look real quick.

18:11 <FreeLarry58> humm that odd

18:12 <PovAddict> hmm so the problem is... if BOINC is stopped, you don't want logrotate post-action to start it?

18:12 * FreeLarry58 slaps PovAddict's ISP with frozen salmon

18:12 <Romulus> 0 credit/day, -257,640 credit/week

18:12 <KathrynM> yeah

18:13 <PovAddict> definitely doable...

18:13 <KathrynM> I wrote the original logrotate config, but I don't even know how to Google to do not have logrotate restart the daemon if it wasn't running.

18:14 <PovAddict> http://rafb.net/p/b5vqpx86.html

18:14 <Romulus> Title: Nopaste - No description (at rafb.net)

18:14 <PovAddict> now question is how to check if BOINC is running... some lock file?

18:15 <KathrynM> Yeah, there's a lock file.

18:15 <PovAddict> is logrotate smart enough not to rotate a 0-byte log? (ie. what if BOINC is stopped for a week, will it create seven empty files when rotating?)

18:15 <KathrynM> If you check the status using init.d/boinc, it tells you if BOINC is/isn't running and if a lock file does/doesn't exist

18:16 <PovAddict> and btw... there should be a way to rotate logs *without* stopping the client...

18:16 <KathrynM> Let me throw up the current config file, give me a sec to find it.

18:16 <PovAddict> how would the logrotate script play with IMP@Home 6-day-without-checkpoint workunits?

18:16 <PovAddict> :)

18:17 <KathrynM> It wouldn't

18:17 <Tank_Master> because there is no IMP work

18:17 <PovAddict> ...

18:17 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: you kinda missed the point :)

18:18 <Tank_Master> lol

18:18 <Tank_Master> no, not really

18:18 <PovAddict> it would also lose a minute or two per day of CPDN work

18:19 <KathrynM> http://rafb.net/p/GdU8nm81.html

18:19 <Romulus> Title: Nopaste - No description (at rafb.net)

18:19 <PovAddict> since it's not only the infrequent checkpoints, but also the overhead in starting up the CPDN application (lots of stuff to load)

18:19 <KathrynM> We tried it without stopping/starting, but it didn't work.

18:20 <PovAddict> it would by modifying BOINC itself

18:20 <PovAddict> I have an idea

18:20 <xcamel> if one were to install the 'ubuntu-boinc' build in it's own dir (completely) it tends not to be effected by those pesky other processes...

18:20 <PovAddict> xcamel: and it wouldn't rotate logs either, which is what they're trying to do

18:20 <xcamel> and you get the nice pretty graphics, too.

18:20 <KathrynM> I get the nice pretty graphics.  One line in the terminal tho.

18:21 <Tank_Master> those are a waste of resorces

18:21 <xcamel> you can just add that log to the logrotate part of cron

18:21 <KathrynM> It is using logrotate in cron

18:22 <PovAddict> <KathrynM> We tried it without stopping/starting, but it didn't work. <- what exactly didn't work?

18:22 <KathrynM> The logs never rotated.

18:23 <PovAddict> afaik, if you moved the boinc log to another name, BOINC would keep writing to the new name anyway

18:23 <KathrynM> Let me forward the entire email thread to you.

18:23 <PovAddict> and if you deleted it, it would keep writing to the now-without-name file

18:24 <PovAddict> so a possible solution is modifying the client so that you can somehow tell it "close the log and open it again"

18:26 <PovAddict> I got LHC work!

18:26 <KathrynM> :)

18:27 <PovAddict> wdsmia: told you my method would work ;)

18:27 <KathrynM> gonna share?

18:27 <PovAddict> a script scraping the server status page

18:27 <KathrynM> lol

18:27 <PovAddict> if ready-to-send is not 0, it uses boinc_cmd to update the project

18:30 <xcamel> more??

18:30 <PovAddict> xcamel: resends

18:31 <Tank_Master> &more

18:31 <Romulus> Tank_Master: Error: You haven't asked me a command; perhaps you want to see someone else's more.  To do so, call this command with that person's nick.

18:31 <PovAddict> oh wait, there's like 116 ready to send

18:31 <PovAddict> go click update!

18:31 <xcamel> crap.. daily quota already..

18:31 <PovAddict> I have yet another trick for that :)

18:32 <xcamel> do tell...

18:32 <PovAddict> if you edit client_state to have some random host id for LHC, the server will notice that host isn't yours (or doesn't exist at all) and will assign you a new valid hostID, which has never downloaded any work, so full quota

18:34 <PovAddict> KathrynM: your forwarded message got truncated after Oct 24, 2007 8:56 AM

18:34 <PovAddict> but anyway...

18:35 <xcamel> didn't work

18:35 <Tank_Master> 116 where?

18:35 <PovAddict> 66 left

18:35 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: LHC

18:35 <Tank_Master> ahh

18:35 <Tank_Master> quota reached

18:35 <PovAddict> 49

18:35 <KathrynM> Nothing interesting after that point.

18:36 <PovAddict> KathrynM: "So I wonder why the Linux version wouldn't have a built in mechanism to save the logs to a file" it does, it has to be run with the --daemon switch and will behave exactly as the Windows version! could you paste the init.d script?

18:36 * Tank_Master logs into work and dose a mass update

18:38 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

18:39 *** benje has quit IRC

18:39 <xcamel> well.. GMT will roll over in 20 minutes..

18:40 <PovAddict> xcamel: it's not based in GMT, quota resets on your first workfetch since the previous reset

18:40 <xcamel> the faker host thing didn't work...

18:40 <PovAddict> KathrynM: http://pastebin.com/m54b8710d click 'view diff'

18:41 <Romulus> Title: Bash pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at pastebin.com)

18:41 <PovAddict> most important thing is removing the & to make it go to the background, and adding a -daemon switch

18:41 <PovAddict> BOINC will go into the background by itself, and write logs

18:41 <PovAddict> it's strange that it doesn't write logs when not a daemon...

18:42 *** benje has joined #boinc

18:43 <KathrynM> I emailed DA asking where the logs were in Linux (explaining about the logrotate stuff I was working on with Eric) and he forwarded my email to Eric.  Eric responded that he has been discussing it with me.  No other response from DA

18:43 * KathrynM rolls eyes.

18:43 <Tank_Master> helpful

18:44 <xcamel> we try...

18:44 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

18:44 <PovAddict> DA for the past month has been answering to most bug reports with something like "Yes, this is indeed broken. Patches welcome."

18:44 <PovAddict> so I'd guess he's busy or something

18:45 <KathrynM> This was back in October or November.

18:45 <xcamel> busy chasing interns...

18:45 <KathrynM> But yeah, I've seen his send me a patch response.

18:46 <PovAddict> but he actually works for BOINC... what on earth is he busy about?

18:46 <xcamel> he is still a professor, IIRC

18:47 <Tank_Master> his new schedular and credit system

18:47 <Tank_Master> and finding other ways to rub us wrong

18:48 <PovAddict> Chris Cason (main POV-Ray dev) a year ago replied with "fixed, thanks" pretty quick to most bug reports in the beta test group... now he's extremely busy with w$%& (the one that pays; nobody pays him to work with povray)

18:48 <xcamel> both will end up being communist/academic

18:48 <PovAddict> but DA gets paid to work with BOINC, so...

18:48 <PovAddict> xcamel: did you see Eric Korpela's proposal?

18:48 <xcamel> not yet

18:49 <Tank_Master> for?

18:49 <PovAddict> credits

18:49 <Tank_Master> ahh

18:49 <xcamel> link?

18:49 <KathrynM> I didn't read it carefully yet.

18:49 <xcamel> foo-pool is killing me tonight

18:49 <PovAddict> xcamel: it was on boinc_projects

18:50 <PovAddict> and the archives require login, so I'll use a pastebin

18:50 <xcamel> any other link to it?

18:50 <Romulus> Title: Nopaste - Eric Korpelas credit proposal (at rafb.net)

18:51 <Tank_Master> ahh, yeah, zombie just posted that today

18:52 <xcamel> any credit proposal that uses 'normalization' is a red herring

18:52 <xcamel> but thanks

18:52 <xcamel> they are so totally missing the boat on this one..

18:53 <Tank_Master> ill bbl

18:58 <xcamel> piespy made some interesting patterns over the course of the day..

19:00 <FreeLarry58> &piespy

19:00 <Romulus> No idea!

19:00 <PovAddict> &whatis piespy

19:00 <Romulus> PovAddict: "piespy" could be http://lledgerock.com/boinc_logs/boinc-current.png

19:00 <FreeLarry58> thanks

19:02 <FreeLarry58> PovAddict you try out the quad as yet?

19:02 <PovAddict> MTughan: just joining you back on the graph :P

19:02 <xcamel> FreeLarry58: graph pop!

19:03 <PovAddict> xcamel: image seems to have gone invalid

19:03 <KathrynM> You guys really are nuts.  I'm off to earn money.  Too bad no overtime lately....  could use another computer :-)

19:35 <xcamel> 'lo eddie

19:35 <efc> can't complain about that

19:36 <efc> Gonna go jog a little with that kind of weather

19:36 <xcamel> one radar in southern IN knocked out..

19:37 <efc> Maybe just a JDAM that got loose..

19:37 <xcamel> that is one nasty front..

19:37 <xcamel> for january..

20:08 <Romulus> xcamel: The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face.

20:12 <PovAddict> xcamel: I asked Eric Korpela for a user-readable explanation of his proposal... say, one that doesn't need knowing SQL to understand

20:12 <PovAddict> http://rafb.net/p/ShGm3Z47.html

20:12 <Romulus> Title: Nopaste - No description (at rafb.net)

20:21 <xcamel> simple answer to Erik... normalization is why people don't enter a mini cooper in a NASCAR race, and why the neighborhood soccer mom doesn't drive a dragster to the market.

20:22 <xcamel> or in geek speak... it's why you don't take a PIII/500 to a quakeIII lan party.

20:24 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

20:28 <PovAddict> and why people don't crunch SETI with a PII?

20:28 <PovAddict> wait, they do, and they get accordingly less credits per day... I keep missing your point

20:29 <infinisoft> Hello

20:30 <xcamel> 'lo infinisoft

20:31 <xcamel> WOW!!

20:32 <xcamel> some pictures..

20:33 <PovAddict> I wouldn't like that seal replaced by one of my legs

20:34 <xcamel> I think not..

20:36 <Soul_keeper> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-127-031     that's an awesome motherboard

20:36 * Soul_keeper wants one ...

20:36 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1TMj> (at www.newegg.com)

20:37 <PovAddict> got a hundred bucks to spare?

20:37 <Soul_keeper> kinda ...

20:37 <Soul_keeper> course i'd need memory, a vid card, and a heatsink ...

20:37 <PovAddict> got a CPU already?

20:37 <Soul_keeper> then it'd end up being like 350 bucks

20:37 <Soul_keeper> yeah

20:38 <Soul_keeper> i just need them parts

20:38 <Soul_keeper> i got the money, but it's just not responsible spending money on computer parts anymore ....

20:38 <Soul_keeper> i already blew 400 bucks on a laptop

20:39 <Soul_keeper> and i don't even really use it

20:40 <Soul_keeper> i already got the parts picked out, problem is it's bad

20:46 <xcamel> not a bad little board..

20:46 <Soul_keeper> computers are just asia trying to sell me stuff

20:46 <xcamel> and that's bad how?

20:47 <Soul_keeper> lol i can't even afford fast food let alone computers

20:47 <PovAddict> who said it's bad? :)

20:49 <xcamel> hehehe..

20:52 <xcamel> buy slower food and faster computers..

20:52 <PovAddict> XD

20:54 <xcamel> btw - I should have had 'repete' back last friday... ups misrouted it 4 times

20:58 <xcamel> I hope Don doesn't get hit too hard by that weather..

21:08 <PovAddict> that doesn't look too nice

21:09 <xcamel> not at all

21:12 * efc is crunching SETI with a lot less than a pII !

21:17 * efc will have the last laugh in 6 months when that WU is finished

21:18 <PovAddict> will you make it for the deadline?

21:18 <efc> Probably not

21:19 <efc> It would make it running 24/7

21:19 <PovAddict> it's so slow and you don't run it 24/7 to compensate?

21:21 <efc> Not when I'm not there

21:22 <xcamel> several other webcams in cincy looked like the power was out..

21:49 * xcamel is away: Gone away for now.

21:50 *** quail has joined #boinc

22:00 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

22:05 <PovAddict> zombie67: 47 hours later, I finished that huge photon map

22:07 <PovAddict> apparently he has some strange bounding problem... POV-Ray shot 1328994234 photons, only 1481333 actually hit some surface (that's 0.11%), so even though it took 2 days, the final file is only 29MB... I might try *rendering* it on the farm, putting the 29MB file as download

22:07 <PovAddict> let's see if it compresses...

22:07 <PovAddict> hey, it does... 11MB

22:08 <zombie67> wow

22:08 <PovAddict> I thought it was highly-random data, didn't expect 50% compression

22:08 <zombie67> I broke 500k on yoyo!

22:08 <PovAddict> cool

22:08 <PovAddict> what's your total combined?

22:09 <zombie67> lemme look

22:11 <zombie67> yeah, LHC really cut into it yesterday

22:11 <zombie67> also, I had to pull my PS3 off to go to PS3GRID.

23:48 <MTughan> You mentioned me last for the BOINC map?

23:48 <PovAddict> yes, you were getting alone in a corner
