IRC logs of #boinc for Friday, 2008-02-08

00:00 <Romulus> I'm about ready for some odd reason i never noticed the project websites also..

00:00 <PovAddict> still pwned

00:00 <MTughan> Damn, that's why... Work buffer was 0.25 days?!

00:00 <MTughan> Got two more immediately.

00:01 <zombie67> but over 57 threads, thats only 3/4's of a days worth of work

00:01 <MTughan> Well, that means I don't have to reattach.

00:01 <zombie67> ;)

00:01 <MTughan> *envy*

00:01 <MTughan> &skcd

00:01 <Romulus> Wish I knew, MTughan.

00:01 <MTughan> &xkcd

00:01 <zombie67> wish I could use my macs!

00:01 <Romulus>

00:02 <MTughan> Yeah, well they'd be out of work within a few hours with your Macs on them.

00:02 <MTughan> &cad

00:02 <Romulus>

00:02 <zombie67> &userfriendly

00:02 <Romulus> No idea!

00:02 <zombie67> heh

00:02 <zombie67> &uf

00:02 <Romulus> I don't have a clue!

00:03 <MTughan> I didn't add that, oddly enough.

00:03 <MTughan> And they update 3 hours later.

00:04 <zombie67> does suspended tasks count against "additional work"

00:04 <zombie67> ?

00:04 <MTughan> And you don't want to see Explosm...

00:13 *** mweltin has quit IRC

00:14 <MTughan> Just gonna revel in the glory of getting more LHC tasks, and then I'm off to bed.

00:14 <MTughan> Just over a minute.

00:16 <zombie67> already have over 1500 in pending at lhc

00:16 <MTughan> Now you're just trying to make me feel bad. And gloating.

00:18 <zombie67> more the latter.

00:18 <zombie67> ;)

00:18 <zombie67> with this much work, I have a real shot of hitting my goal of 100k

00:18 <MTughan> Well, my puny P4 now has 8 tasks.

00:18 <zombie67> HT?

00:19 <MTughan> Yep.

00:19 <zombie67> so about 12hr each

00:19 <zombie67> so two days woth

00:19 <zombie67> worth

00:19 <MTughan> 15.

00:19 <zombie67> speed?

00:19 <MTughan> 2.8GHz.

00:19 <zombie67> ah

00:20 <MTughan> Just wait until I get the quad...

00:20 <zombie67> my dual 5060 Xeon is 3.2ghz

00:20 <zombie67> so that is 4 cores, 8 threads.

00:20 <MTughan> And you pay for the computing power, in hardware and electricity.

00:20 <zombie67> but basically P4 w HT

00:20 <zombie67> yeah

00:20 <MTughan> I'm a student.

00:21 <zombie67> don't remind me

00:21 <zombie67> ;)

00:21 <MTughan> Power, power, power, power...

00:21 <zombie67> hey!  move on campus

00:21 <zombie67> free power!

00:21 <MTughan> 4-5 months until that day.

00:21 <MTughan> High-school student.

00:21 <zombie67> aaah!

00:21 <zombie67> i forgot

00:21 <MTughan> 17, older than PovAddict.

00:22 <MTughan> ;(

00:22 <MTughan> ;) *

00:22 <zombie67> kids

00:22 <MTughan> Hey, I'm a programmer.

00:22 <zombie67> and a very good one as far as I can tell

00:23 <MTughan> I'm still an amateur. Just a good learner.

00:23 <MTughan> And persistant.

00:23 <MTughan> persistent*

00:23 <zombie67> i speak typo

00:23 <MTughan> Doesn't bode well on assignments to have spelling mistakes. Especially not English assignments.

00:24 <zombie67> that's what a spell checker is for

00:24 <MTughan> Doesn't catch everything. Besides, how did people with typewriters do it?

00:25 <PovAddict> more carefully

00:25 <zombie67> they did it with proof-readser

00:25 <zombie67> heh

00:25 <MTughan> Yes, well, I just spellcheck while I type. And I need to be off to bed.

00:25 <zombie67> gn

00:25 <MTughan> And PovAddict?

00:26 <PovAddict> what did I do now

00:26 <MTughan> I'm older than you. :P

00:26 <PovAddict> so

00:26 <MTughan> lol, night.

00:45 <zombie67> 186 now on my boxen

01:04 *** Wabbit98 has joined #boinc

01:08 <zombie67> hi wabbit

01:08 <Wabbit98> zombie

01:08 <Wabbit98> you running QCN?

01:08 <zombie67> are you kidding?

01:08 <Wabbit98> oh yeah

01:09 <Wabbit98> my mind can be swiss cheese at times

01:09 <zombie67> i'm the one that got but-raped

01:09 <zombie67> ;)

01:09 <Wabbit98> have any of the WU's finished for you yet or trickled in credit?

01:09 <zombie67> I still can't run it

01:09 <Wabbit98> because of the global prefs?

01:09 <zombie67> yeah

01:10 <zombie67> keeps changing it back to 1

01:10 <Wabbit98> to bad TM is not around

01:10 <zombie67> also, the admin said he changed it to a non-cpu-intensive project, but not teue

01:10 <Wabbit98> I am curious if anyone has finished one

01:10 <zombie67> tm?  he has no macs

01:10 <Wabbit98> they have a Win client now

01:11 <zombie67> he has no laptops

01:11 <Wabbit98> do you really need a laptop to run it?

01:11 <Wabbit98> I mean the program should work on any computer with BOINC

01:12 <zombie67> no, but you need a drive that has the accelerometer(sp?)

01:12 <zombie67> those are usually only in laptops

01:12 <zombie67> the 2.5" drives

01:12 <Wabbit98> now why is that accelerometer important?

01:13 <zombie67> it is what detects movement.

01:13 <Wabbit98> bah

01:13 <Wabbit98> they should write the program so it can work on all computers

01:13 <Wabbit98> they won't get many people if just new laptops

01:13 <zombie67> The idea, is if the laptop is dropped, it will notice, and lock down the head, so not to dammage the HD

01:14 <zombie67> it is not a program issue

01:14 <zombie67> if the HD doesn't have it, no SW will work

01:20 <zombie67> check this.  He attached is sensor to his virtual desktop.

01:35 <zombie67> LEELA:  I'm sorry but if it's fun in any way it's not environmentalism.

01:35 <zombie67> WATERFALL SR:  Oh really? How 'bout blowing up dams?

03:58 <efc> Perhaps we should dispense with receiving products and send the cash directly to China? After converting to a hard currency, of couse

14:22 <zombie67> Thanks.  re-uploaded

14:22 <PovAddict> I'm still not sure why it was lost

14:22 <PovAddict> the admin said the user_profile folder was empty when he copied it...

14:23 <zombie67> where did it move ot?

14:23 <zombie67> to?

14:23 <PovAddict> I dunno, but it sure helps that its software isn't a year old

14:24 <zombie67> no, I mean, where did the server move to?

14:24 <PovAddict> the server didn't move, it's a new server, and I don't know where it is :)

14:29 <zombie67> thought of another feature

14:30 <zombie67> when on the messages tab, I would like to be able to display specific to a particular project.

14:30 <zombie67> IOW, "show me only LHC messages"

14:31 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

14:31 <PovAddict> that's relatively simple to do

14:31 <PovAddict> if the messages were generated in a sane way, it would be even be possible to filter message types

14:31 <PovAddict> ("show me only scheduler requests")

14:31 <zombie67> that would be handy too

14:32 <PovAddict> but searching for strings like "Sending scheduler request" is error prone

14:32 <zombie67> I picture a column of buttons on the left, one for each project attached

14:32 <PovAddict> it has already happened a bunch of times that they re-worded messages

14:33 <zombie67> yeah

14:34 <PovAddict> hmm the new server has an uptime of 99 days actually...

14:34 <PovAddict> makes me doubt its software up-to-date-ness

14:36 <zombie67> when is midnight at lhc?

14:41 <zombie67> lhc is taking 24 hours on my PIII M

14:41 <PovAddict> why do you want to know its midnight?

14:42 <zombie67> then I get more work

14:43 <zombie67> looks like 4 hours and 15 minutes until midnight there.

17:54 <Tank_Master> no, they are to scared to

17:54 <CoderForLife> I think it was "Three Stooges 12 Step"

17:54 <KathrynM> Is 12 steps really enough?

17:54 <CoderForLife> ran outta steps

17:55 <PovAddict> IE7 SUCKS

17:55 <CoderForLife> no it *really* sucks

17:56 <PovAddict> my old computer had its PSU replaced

17:56 <CoderForLife> it takes suck to a whole new level

17:56 <Rookie_69> What's IE?

17:56 <PovAddict> and came back infected with IE7

17:56 <PovAddict> they struggled to make it hard for users

17:56 <PovAddict> the menu is *below* the toolbar, and I found no way to swap them

17:57 <CoderForLife> QMC is refusing to cough up any more WUs for me

17:57 <PovAddict> when opening, it opens some silly welcome page, and asks you to set configuration

17:57 <PovAddict> my mom just ignored it, went to bookmarks, opened a page

17:57 <CoderForLife> ut oh

17:57 <Rookie_69> Is that what people use when they don't know about Firefox?

17:57 <xcamel> best way I ever heard that put...

17:57 <PovAddict> yet another silly popup asking if she wanted to enable the phishing filter (which she had no idea what the hell it was about)

17:58 <CoderForLife> what xcamel, my comment?

17:58 <PovAddict> then, my mom wanted the bookmark toolbar back

17:58 <CoderForLife> or PovAddict "came back infected"

17:58 <PovAddict> I put it back... and I took some seconds to figure out where it was

17:58 <PovAddict> a 16px thing on a corner

17:59 <CoderForLife> yeah, a crowbar and a cutting torch usually does the trick with IE

17:59 <PovAddict> and if you dare opening a new tab, it opens all that crap teaching you to use tabs, that probably confuses people more

17:59 <xcamel> pov's prophetic statement

17:59 <CoderForLife> all it's missing is Clippy

17:59 <PovAddict> well, CFL, you surely heard of Microsoft wanting to buy Yahoo?

18:03 <CoderForLife> I see from the pic that a merger with Gateway is also in the offing

18:03 <PovAddict> hotmail has way too many false positives with spam

18:03 <KathrynM> I can't remember the last time spam made it into the spam box in hotmail.

19:40 <efc> what a terrificable idea

19:40 <xcamel> what a boinc machine...

19:41 <xcamel> 8 million credits a day..

19:41 * efc might be able to do that with a small small grant..

19:42 <efc> However much it takes to do a few ASIC runs..

19:43 <efc> So IBM wants to go back to big iron and dumb terminals, how convenient for them

19:44 <efc> I guess they really mean running all the servers?

19:45 <Soul_keeper> they want to be the internet backbone

19:45 <Soul_keeper> or the brain rather

19:47 <efc> there are probably some economies of scope there

19:47 <xcamel> the root servers are getting a tad old, aren't they?

19:48 <efc> I wish those Virtex-5 FPGAs weren't $8k a piece or I might make good on my 8 million credit/day threat..

19:48 <efc> I dunno, they can't be ported to newer stuff?

19:49 <xcamel> probably

19:49 <efc> I have heard that they are running out of space in the routing tables or something like that

19:49 <PovAddict> PFFFT

19:49 <PovAddict> that's so stupid

19:49 <PovAddict> a single machine with the whole internet?

19:50 <PovAddict> what are they smoking?

19:52 <efc> Putting the bigger webservers on FPGAs, now that might make a little sense, in extreme cases

19:55 <PovAddict> think of databases too

19:55 <PovAddict> and they also need to fit Google search engine in there

19:55 <PovAddict> and youtube server-side whatever-to-FLV conversions, etc... so much CPU usage scattered around servers

19:55 * PovAddict pizza ->

19:58 <efc> I watched this video where a prof dude was trying to convince google to put their whole search thing in an FPGA fabric

23:08 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC

23:10 <wdsmia> didnt you guys just get electricity and cars up there  a few years ago?

23:10 <wdsmia> ;)

23:10 <Rookie_69> Not here... I gotta pedal this generamator thingy to stay online.

23:12 * Rookie_69 has a wry sense of humour whish is odd because he doesn't like rye.

23:13 <Rookie_69> ... and can't speel either.

23:13 <wdsmia> rye? ...rye not

23:14 <KathrynM> proper speeling is overrate

23:14 <KathrynM> *rated

23:14 <KathrynM> as is proper grammar

23:14 <PovAddict> wut

23:14 <MTughan> right u are

23:14 <KathrynM> which, of course is why they let me teach English

23:14 <PovAddict> yeah, proper spelling is overrated

23:15 <PovAddict> but people who ask "wats rong wid de wai i rite" should be shot

23:15 <Rookie_69> Leave my Grammer out of this. She was a saint.

23:15 <KathrynM> lol

23:17 *** efc has joined #boinc

23:17 <Rookie_69> I'm getting more farsighted by the day, so some of the keys I hit are just guesses.

23:18 <wdsmia> get longer arms

23:18 <Rookie_69> Soon, I'll have to wear glasses while driving just to see the dashboard.

23:20 <PovAddict> efc: " * efc remotely detonates the stupid megathumber car stereos outside"

23:20 <Romulus> Title: xkcd - A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language - By Randall Munroe (at

23:21 <efc> hehe

23:29 <Rookie_69> Nytol.

23:30 <wdsmia> cya

23:30 *** Rookie_69 has left #boinc

23:32 <MTughan> My stylized version of the current BOINC logo...

23:32 <MTughan>

23:32 <Romulus> <> (at

23:33 <MTughan> Rendered from a SVG file made by Inkscape.

23:50 <MTughan> Slightly updated version up... Anyone have any opinions?

23:50 <PovAddict> sucks

23:50 <PovAddict> nah not really :)

23:50 <KathrynM> link to the first one please

23:51 <KathrynM> so I can compare.  My memory is trash

23:51 <MTughan> What first one?

23:51 <MTughan> The original?

23:51 <PovAddict> he overwrote old file with new one

23:51 <PovAddict> there's no "first one" :)

23:51 <KathrynM> never mind

23:51 <KathrynM> I thought there was one yesterday

23:51 <PovAddict> ah

23:51 <MTughan> It's just some slight tweaks..

23:51 <MTughan> Oh, that one.

23:51 <Romulus> It's actually quite a bit with a medium sized non-functional AT power source

23:51 <MTughan> should be it.

23:51 <Romulus> <> (at

23:51 <MTughan> Although even that one's improved...

23:52 * KathrynM shrugs. I like yesterday's better

23:52 <MTughan> Updated, but ignore the black circle. I'm working on getting it out.

23:52 <PovAddict> well yeah

23:52 <PovAddict> one's 2D, the other's 2D

23:52 <PovAddict> ARGH

23:52 <PovAddict> one's 2D, the other's 3D

23:52 <KathrynM> lol

23:52 <KathrynM> I knew what you meant

23:53 <MTughan> I rather like the stylized version though.

23:53 <PovAddict> damn

23:53 <KathrynM> It's your baby.  Use the one you like.

23:53 <PovAddict> I want to know if this CD was correctly burned

23:53 <MTughan> Maybe try to add a bit more depth using gradients, and I might use it instead for my Manager.

23:53 <PovAddict> starts slow

23:53 <MTughan> Still like to create the official BOINC icon in Blender though.

23:53 <PovAddict> then pauses, spins up drive, and continues fast... and NOISY

23:54 <PovAddict> I'm not sure what I want anyway... slow... or silent...

23:56 <PovAddict> seems to be OK \o/
