08:29 <clusty> ahoy

08:29 * clusty bows to the masta

08:29 <KathrynM> lol

08:29 <KathrynM> oh masta...   do uppercase fail to validate for no good reason at times?

08:30 <clusty> trying to start a project?

08:30 <KathrynM> me?

08:30 <KathrynM> heck no

08:30 <PovAddic1> I doubt your computer forgets what's the uppercase version of 'a' and converts it to 'B'...

08:30 <KathrynM> lol

08:30 *** PovAddic1 is now known as PovAddict

08:31 <PovAddict> you could try .39 by the way

08:31 <KathrynM> well, the first version i compiled was .39

08:31 <KathrynM> had some invalids.

08:31 <KathrynM> so were they invalid because of my self compiled version or buggy code?

08:31 <PovAddict> the first version you compiled was 5.10 branch, not necessarily the same :)

08:31 <KathrynM> oh

08:31 <KathrynM> this is just too hard :/

08:31 <PovAddict> I don't see how a bad core client could cause invalid workunits

08:32 * KathrynM shrugs

08:32 <KathrynM> I don't either

08:32 <KathrynM> but I'm trying to be scientific here.

08:33 <KathrynM> i'm running a few pg tps to see if those turn out ok.

08:33 <KathrynM>

08:33 <Romulus> <> (at

08:33 <KathrynM> if you're curious

08:34 <PovAddict> you know that correlation vs causation thing :]

08:34 <KathrynM> yeah.  i know

08:34 <KathrynM> dr. mastrangelo drilled it into my head years ago

08:35 <PovAddict> hey guess what...

08:35 <PovAddict> <- you got it marked as invalid on this one

08:35 <Romulus> <> (at

08:35 <Romulus> it works just fine

08:36 <PovAddict> the other three results were crunched by the same machine

08:36 <PovAddict> running truXoft boinc client

08:36 <KathrynM> holy smokes

08:37 <PovAddict> I think the server should convert the input file to uppercase by itself, and compare *that*... not do a inter-result comparison

08:37 <KathrynM> so I've been banging my head against a wall for nothing.

08:37 <PovAddict> <- now this one is more interesting

08:37 <Romulus> <> (at

08:38 <PovAddict> because there is *nothing* interesting about the other four results

08:38 <PovAddict> different computers, some with different client versions, yet all validated with each other and yours didn't

08:39 <KathrynM> that's one that I ran at lucnh time

08:39 <KathrynM> I was hypothsizing that it was invalid because two were running at the same time.

08:39 <KathrynM> but I've run two together this evening.

08:39 <KathrynM> dunno

08:39 <KathrynM> everyone else was windows...

08:39 <PovAddict> email DA and hope his file_deleter is slow (or tell him to disable it and run some more WUs) so he can compare the output files from all 5 results manually

08:40 <KathrynM> i emailed him yesterday about the deleter

08:40 <KathrynM> results used to stick around forever and a day

08:40 <PovAddict> oh you mean the results on the DB?

08:40 <KathrynM> yeah

08:40 <KathrynM> two differen things?

08:41 <PovAddict> I meant the *files*, which usually get deleted as soon as they aren't needed for validation

08:41 <KathrynM> don't upset my blissful ignorance :)

08:46 <clusty> i am having some issue with self compiled clients under windows

08:46 <clusty> maybe you PovAddict can shed some light :D

08:46 <clusty> running self compiled boinc.exe gives some error

08:47 <clusty> some "failed to init" and some hexanumber

08:47 <clusty> seen such stuff before?

08:47 <PovAddict> what number...?

08:47 *** hawmps has quit IRC

17:34 <MTughan> Or not.

18:30 <PovAddict> could you make those process and report quickly, maybe by suspending other projects? it's just this fast bunch, then I'll send a hundred or two that can run at their own pace...

18:31 <zombie67> lemme try

18:31 <PovAddict> careful... maybe you suspend a project and that makes another fetch work... :-\

18:35 <Tank_Master> that would be handy at times

18:35 <MTughan> Sorting problems, yeah. I'm just getting to them now.

18:35 <PovAddict> zombie67: you seem to be pushing data onto the server like crazy :)

18:37 <PovAddict> zombie67: his mgr is for Mac only, not using any x-platform GUI library

18:37 <MTughan> He has Mac.

18:37 <zombie67> that works for 1/3 of my machines

18:37 <PovAddict> that's a feature

18:37 <PovAddict> :)

18:38 <MTughan> Oh, and it'll support remote machines, hopefully multiple ones at a time.

18:38 <PovAddict> to support multiple at a time, you need some changes to the user interface...

18:38 <Romulus> why wouldnt I want the project .xml files

18:38 <MTughan> Some, but for later...

18:38 <zombie67> similar to that 3rd boinc mgr for windows?

18:39 <PovAddict> zombie67: BOINCView? well, it could have some iTunes-like bar on the left, and maybe even with filters (like those smart playlists, or smart folders on Mail), so even more powerful than BOINCView

18:39 <zombie67> nice!

18:39 <zombie67> gimme!

20:40 <MTughan> Oops.

20:40 <Romulus> I dumped it about 8 months ago - everything was building right Revision: 14541

20:40 <PovAddict> on Excel: if you set A1 and drag down, it will change to B1, C1, etc; if you set it to $A1, the A won't change

20:40 <Soul_keeper> well it's like this    (c + (M*R))/s

20:40 <Soul_keeper> i want M to change when i drag

20:40 <PovAddict> similar for the number:  if you set A1 and drag right, it will change to A2, A3, etc; if you set it to A$1, the 1 won't change... you can combine that to $A$1

20:40 <Soul_keeper> the others are constant

20:41 <MTughan> What is M supposed to change to then?

20:41 <Soul_keeper> a corresponding value

20:41 <Soul_keeper> br

20:41 <Soul_keeper> brb

20:41 <MTughan> So it's a cell reference?

20:44 <PovAddict> want t137 done fast? :)

20:45 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, yes

20:45 <Soul_keeper> let me clarify

20:45 <MTughan> 137's rendered...

20:45 <Soul_keeper> =((b23+(A26*B19))/B22)

20:45 <MTughan> You want just A26 to change?

20:45 <Soul_keeper> yes

20:46 <PovAddict> =(($b$23+(A26*$B$19))/$B$22)

20:46 <MTughan> You can always try Pov's way on the other variables.

20:46 <Soul_keeper> interesting

20:46 <Soul_keeper> i'll give that a try

20:46 <MTughan> PovAddict: 0.09KB/s up?

20:46 <PovAddict> whur

20:47 <MTughan> Uploading 138.

20:47 <Soul_keeper> wow that worked

20:47 <Soul_keeper> thanks

20:47 <MTughan> And it stopped...

20:47 <MTughan> Cool, so KSpread follows that.

20:47 <MTughan> And now it went fast...

20:47 <MTughan> 72 was aborted...

20:48 <MTughan> Hmm... BOINC says 72 was aborted, but the web pages don't show that.

20:48 <MTughan> Oh, now it does.

20:48 <PovAddict> I pushed 138 into validation quicker :)

20:48 <PovAddict> changed quorum to 1

20:48 <MTughan> I see that.

20:49 <PovAddict> i c wut u did thur"

20:49 <MTughan> Whatever...

20:49 <MTughan> Hey, that'd be a great plugin, for an IRC client or for Rommie.

20:49 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

20:50 <PovAddict> what...

20:50 <MTughan> To change your saying to what you just said.

20:51 *** f0urtyfive has joined #boinc

20:52 <PovAddict> I just pushed a LOT into quicker validation

20:52 <PovAddict> I should have used quorum 1 from the beginning, the validator is stupid anyway so using a quorum doesn't help avoid bad results

20:53 <xcamel> great plugin ?

20:53 <xcamel> dare I ask?

20:53 <MTughan> You'll see...

20:54 * xcamel cringes..

20:54 *** Bad_At_Home has joined #boinc

20:56 * MTughan i c wut u did thur

20:56 <MTughan> /dumb I see what you did there

20:56 <MTughan> I'll need to change it from an action...

20:57 <MTughan> i c wut u did thur

21:00 <MTughan> PovAddict: How many images still have to be rendered?

21:01 <MTughan> Looks like 43...

21:01 <PovAddict> there's a lot of wasted time in upload/download/decompressing... I should get dynamic tiling implemented...

21:03 <MTughan> PovAddict: Any opinion on what pane I should implement next?

21:03 <MTughan> For BOINC Manager.

21:03 <PovAddict> transfers; it's easier than tasks, yet whatever you do there will help you when implementing tasks

21:04 <MTughan> Sounds good, although harder to test.

21:04 <PovAddict> ah right

21:04 <PovAddict> that could be a problem

21:05 <PovAddict> lowered cups.php HTML size by about 50% :)

21:05 <MTughan> I've learned most of what I'll probably need to do in the crash course with Projects, so I think I might just go on and tackle Tasks.

21:06 <PovAddict> you use something like a progress bar for the resource shares

21:06 <MTughan> Yeah.

21:08 <MTughan>

21:08 <Romulus> <> (at

21:09 <PovAddict> then you already know how to do one... for the %

21:09 <MTughan> Yeah.

21:09 <MTughan> I'm not sure if I can combine text and progress bar in one though. Not without subclassing the cell and adding another view.

21:12 <PovAddict> do other mac apps ever do that?

21:12 <MTughan> I don't see too many apps with progress bars...

21:13 <MTughan> iMovie is one though. No, no percent progress, but a countdown for time.

21:13 <MTughan> However, that's also moving.

21:13 <PovAddict> is the countdown inside (on top of) the progressbar?

21:14 <MTughan> No.

21:14 <MTughan> Below it, where they have some room.

21:14 <MTughan> brb

21:15 <PovAddict> I'll force some resends

21:16 <Tank_Master> ill force some updates

21:16 <PovAddict> 29 resends

21:17 <Tank_Master> and by for it means 8

21:18 <Tank_Master> why are some "aborted by project"?

21:18 <PovAddict> because they were already validated

21:19 <Tank_Master> piece of...

21:19 <PovAddict> lol

21:19 <PovAddict> it's making you waste less CPU :)

21:19 <PovAddict> say quorum is 2 and replication is 3, once two come, the server will attempt to abort the third (for example, if the client already started it, it won't be aborted)

21:19 <Tank_Master> yeah, I know

21:20 <Tank_Master> waste of bandith and I/O

21:21 <MTughan> Mon Feb  4 21:21:04 2008|IMP test|Scheduler request failed: Couldn't connect to server

21:21 <MTughan> And it does have a connection.

21:21 <PovAddict> looks like somebody was just downloading the 10MB input

21:22 <PovAddict> no WUs left to crunch now anyway

21:22 * Tank_Master hhits the update button repeadidly to no avail

21:23 <MTughan> repeatedly*

21:23 * Tank_Master hits MTughan with the dicknhary

21:23 * MTughan hurts Tank_Master with a suspicious BOINC GUI RPC

21:23 <MTughan> IT CAME UP!!!!

21:23 <PovAddict> Tank_Master seems to have 13 WUs in progress

21:24 <PovAddict> zombie has 54?!

21:24 <Tank_Master> I only have it on 2 comps

21:24 <MTughan> I saw at least 3 8-core XP machines from zombie.

21:24 <Tank_Master> he has it on many

21:25 <Tank_Master> some are macs with the windows enhancements added to them

21:25 <MTughan> "Windows Enhancements"?

21:25 <Tank_Master> xp

21:25 <MTughan> You mean using Boot Camp?

21:25 <MTughan> Apple's BIOS emulator.

21:25 <Tank_Master> yep

21:26 <MTughan> Ah...

21:26 <Tank_Master> its not a bios emulator

21:26 <MTughan> How do you think they boot XP?

21:26 <MTughan> Apple uses EFI in their MBs.

21:26 <Tank_Master> xp supports the bios replacement, its just disabled

21:26 <Tank_Master> same with vista

21:27 <MTughan> I thought that was just Vista, not XP...

21:27 <PovAddict> wow!

21:27 <PovAddict> who wants an open proxy that is surely not blocked?

21:27 <Tank_Master> I havent a fikin clue why they built it in there than not enabled it

21:27 <MTughan> Huh?

21:27 <Tank_Master> I do

21:27 <PovAddict> MTughan: is that blocked for you? I remember it was

21:30 <PovAddict> well I read about a trick making Google translate from English to English

21:30 <PovAddict> translation would be a no-op, but content would come from google server

21:30 <MTughan> Actually, he might be right... There's a huge CSS stylesheet before the <title> tags.

21:58 <PovAddict> without taking a screenshot of the page :)

21:58 <MTughan> ffmpeg?

21:58 <PovAddict> ffmpeg = lots of frames -> video

21:58 <PovAddict> I want lots of tiles -> single big image

21:58 <PovAddict> time to write my own inefficient PHP script using GD I guess

21:58 <MTughan> PHP could probably do it... GIMP would work, but high on labour.

21:59 <Tank_Master> PovAddict is used to being in labor
