00:44 <Wabbit98> nighty night

00:44 <MTughan> zombie67: Want to try the x86_64 sieve app while I'm away?

00:44 <zombie67> hah!  tomorrow.  go to bed

00:44 <zombie67> ;)

00:44 <MTughan> Heh, np.

00:44 <MTughan> Night.

00:44 <Romulus> off to drug myself so hopefully I'll get some sleep. See everyone tomorrow.

00:44 <MTughan> Uh... No.

00:45 <zombie67> little fom column A, a little from column B

00:45 <MTughan> You know that's from over 24 hours ago?

00:45 <efc> i haven't read it in 48 hours

00:45 <MTughan> Gah, distractions... Bye.

00:47 <efc> they need to put that on the old folks page with Mary Worth and Judge Parker

00:48 *** Wabbit67 has joined #boinc

00:50 <zombie67> 67...98...67...

00:50 <zombie67> sup?

00:51 <efc> Zzz

00:51 <Wabbit67> bah

00:52 <zombie67> humbug

00:52 <John_Clay> hah.

00:52 <John_Clay> I mock your humbuggery.

00:53 <Wabbit67> I mock your nick

00:53 <zombie67> is that a cross between a hummer and buggery?

00:55 <John_Clay> No way to run folding@home on BOINC, is there?

00:56 <zombie67> no.

00:56 <Wabbit67> nein

00:56 <John_Clay> Lame.

00:56 <zombie67> there was a test for a short period a few years ago

00:56 <John_Clay> You'd think that two projects from the same facility would use the same method of distributed computing

00:56 <zombie67> huh?

00:56 <zombie67> folding = stanford

00:56 <zombie67> boinc = berkeley

00:56 <John_Clay> Oh... blind day =)

00:57 <zombie67> more like rivals

00:57 <zombie67> ;)

00:57 <John_Clay> Indeed.

00:57 <Wabbit67> bitter rivals

00:58 <zombie67> who can be more liberal?

00:58 <zombie67> I can live in trees!

00:58 <John_Clay> haha

00:58 <Wabbit67> hippies the lot of you

00:59 <zombie67> "Say, don't you have some oily birds to wash, or a candlelight vigil to prepare for, or something?" -- Geoff Miller

00:59 <zombie67> wabbit, why 67?

01:00 <Wabbit67> random numbers

01:00 <zombie67> ah

01:00 <zombie67> ah!  67..89

01:00 <zombie67> sequencia

01:00 <zombie67> l

01:00 <zombie67> er, no

01:00 <zombie67> 67 98

01:01 <John_Clay> 5 minutes until second work unit is completed. Heh.

01:02 <John_Clay> 1 core is still working away at the true second one.. eta on that one is 12 hours

01:02 <zombie67> which project?

01:02 <zombie67> SETI?  LHC?

01:02 <John_Clay> SETI

01:02 <zombie67> ah

01:02 <Romulus> we have a compiler installed, you will notice a lack in responce time

01:03 <zombie67> SETI is a good start...but there are over 80 projects out there.  Experiment!

01:03 <John_Clay> LHC looks neat though.

01:03 <zombie67> BOINC projects

01:03 <John_Clay> Yeah

01:03 <zombie67> so you don't have to choose.  You can run many at the same time.

01:03 <John_Clay> I'm giving weatherprediction as well

01:03 <Wabbit67> hmmmmm

01:04 <zombie67> CPDN?

01:04 <John_Clay> it'll just queue the next unit then?

01:04 <zombie67> yep

01:04 <Wabbit67> plenty of fish in the sea

01:04 <zombie67> and switch back and forth as needed

01:04 <Wabbit67> no need to join and secret cults dedicated to alpha projects

01:04 <zombie67> the point:  SETI is the largest (by far) project.  Try some of the smaller projects that may need help.

01:05 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1F9l> (at homepage.mac.com)

01:05 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

01:08 <John_Clay> How long for the work units done to be validated?

01:08 <zombie67> depends on you wingman

01:09 <John_Clay> eh?

01:09 <zombie67> look at the due date for his task

01:09 <zombie67> give me the URL to the task you are asking about

01:09 <John_Clay> wingman? Ah, doing things in tandem to cross-validate.

01:09 <zombie67> gimme th url

01:10 <zombie67> the

01:10 <John_Clay> http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/workunit.php?wuid=225712366

01:10 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_aw> (at setiathome.berkeley.edu)

01:10 <zombie67> okay, see "minimum quorum" for that task?

01:10 <John_Clay> Yep

01:11 <zombie67> 2, means that two tasks must be returned that match to validate

01:11 <John_Clay> Ah, cool.

01:11 <zombie67> if the wingman doesn't return in time, or returns a different result, a nother task will be issued to a 3rd wingman

01:12 <zombie67> lather, rinse, repeat until done

01:12 <zombie67> see the "max # of error/total/success tasks" values?

01:12 <John_Clay> yeah

01:13 <zombie67> bottom line, most tasks validate in a day or two.  But some can take many weeks

01:13 <Wabbit67> SZTAKI use to take months

01:14 <efc> If some moron with a cyrix-133 gets your WU it can take forever

01:14 <John_Clay> haah

01:14 <Tank_Master> :P

01:14 <zombie67> SZTAKI's problem is that they had LONG running WUs combined with a "ready to send" queue of 30,000.  re-issues took FOREVER to finally get re-sent

01:14 <John_Clay> I'm alrady bogging down the person with the second task

01:14 <John_Clay> they were done in 17 minuts :/

01:14 <Tank_Master> so r u saying you dont want me to use my 486?

01:15 *** cactuar has joined #boinc

01:15 <zombie67> heh

01:15 <zombie67> brb

01:15 <Tank_Master> k

01:16 * efc put a p200mmx in that machine so the WU will beat the deadline

01:17 <Tank_Master> naw. ill just overclock

01:17 <zombie67> SX or DX?

01:18 <Tank_Master> I actually have seen a quad 486 mobo before

01:18 <Tank_Master> I shoulda grabed it before it was tossed

01:18 <Tank_Master> and mod the xml so it reports a higher int/float score. for that makes it go faster, right?

01:20 <efc> quad 486, that would have been awesome :(

01:20 <Tank_Master> was a server mobo

01:20 <John_Clay> I'm thinking of upgrading the CPU in the mini, maybe toss in a C2D

01:20 <Tank_Master> I guess it worked to

01:21 <Tank_Master> just a P3 500 at the time would run circules around it

01:21 <efc> I've considered trying to build a multi old CPU mb but doesn't seem worth it..

01:21 <efc> even for the novelty

01:21 <Romulus> looks for things like abort or suspend. Same thing with wired networking... 2 minutes to hire goons in your iptables"

01:23 <zombie67> JC:  Which mini?  PPC or Intel?

01:23 <John_Clay> Intel

01:23 <John_Clay> 1.66Ghz, CD

01:23 <zombie67> they upgrade to C2D easily enough!

01:23 <John_Clay> Yep.

01:24 <zombie67> what team are you on?

01:24 <John_Clay> Just a matter of finding the appropriate chip, and the time to do it.

01:24 <John_Clay> ehMaculate

01:24 <zombie67> Heh.  I came from Team MacNN

01:24 <zombie67> #17

01:24 <Wabbit67> bah

01:24 <Wabbit67> KWSN is the best

01:24 <Tank_Master> bah

01:24 <zombie67> *snort*

01:25 <Tank_Master> lol

01:25 <Wabbit67> you are all just jealous we have our own made up religioin

01:25 <zombie67> show me a measuring stick that says so

01:25 <Wabbit67> religioin

01:25 <zombie67> I speak typo

01:25 <Wabbit67> thanks

01:25 <Wabbit67> http://kwsn.myminicity.com/

01:25 <Romulus> Title: MyMiniCity (at kwsn.myminicity.com)

01:25 <Tank_Master> religon?

01:25 <Tank_Master> still looks funny

01:26 *** cactaur has quit IRC

01:26 <Tank_Master> bah, I dont know how to spell half of what O spell and the other hale I can spell worse than I aught to

01:27 <Tank_Master> I* half*

01:27 <John_Clay> ooh. If my work units discover aliens, do I win a prize? :D

01:28 <Wabbit67> a cookie

01:28 <John_Clay> Awesome.

01:28 <Wabbit67> or being sold into alien slavery

01:28 <John_Clay> aww

01:28 <John_Clay> I'll take the cookie, thanks

01:28 <Wabbit67> can't remember

01:28 <Tank_Master> you can find lots of cookies on the internet

01:29 <Tank_Master> just make sure you dont pick up the bad ones

01:29 <John_Clay> Those ones aren't chocolate chip.

01:29 <Tank_Master> no, but they were made with the help of chips

01:30 <flight16> I wonder if my CPU has cured cancer yet.  I wish it would hurry up :(

01:30 <Tank_Master> lol

01:30 <zombie67> Homer no function well without beer

01:30 <zombie67> snort

01:30 <zombie67> screwed it up

01:30 <Tank_Master> dont worry, even if it did find the cure to end all canser, we as a society arent ready for it, so it wont be released

01:31 <zombie67> Homer no function beer well without

01:32 <efc> There are certainly some odd CPUs down there in the bottom of the stats..

01:32 <Tank_Master> I think im gonna go kill something then go to bed

01:33 <Tank_Master> ill c-ya later

01:33 <zombie67> HF

01:33 <efc> nothing much less than a pentium though

01:33 <Tank_Master> oh I will ;)

01:33 <zombie67> I FU's a HD today

01:33 <zombie67> FU'd

01:33 <zombie67> fun stuff!

01:34 <efc> Running a coprocessor emulator on a 386 ought to be good

01:43 <John_Clay> wtf

01:43 <John_Clay> how do I unattach a project in BOINC?

01:44 <efc> "Detach"

01:45 <John_Clay> Ah, brilliant.. it's not in the menu bar along with "Attach"...

01:50 *** Wabbit67 has quit IRC

02:05 *** cactuar has quit IRC

02:23 <zombie67> BOINC is not very Mac friendly

02:27 <John_Clay> it really isn't

02:27 <John_Clay> horrible UI

02:27 <John_Clay> at least it's universal though.

02:33 <Priit_M> load average: 7.67, 6.53, 5.68

02:34 <John_Clay> oad averages: 0.06 0.03 0.05

02:35 <John_Clay> load averages: 1.52 1.57 1.60 <--BOINC machine, heh

02:36 <zombie67> updated!  http://homepage.mac.com/zombie67/BOINC_Projects.html

02:36 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1F9l> (at homepage.mac.com)

02:36 <Priit_M> about 3.3 load on my boinc machine

02:36 <Priit_M> when there's only boinc running

02:37 <zombie67> not very familiar with what "load" meand

02:37 <zombie67> means

02:37 <zombie67> more of a ps kinda guy

02:37 <John_Clay> higher load = machine doing more, hah

02:37 <zombie67> well yeah

02:38 <zombie67> on a scale of....?

02:38 <Priit_M> I don't understand load very much as well, but I do know that web servers shouldn't have higher load than 1 per CPU core :p

02:38 <zombie67> 6 is big?  or 6,000,000,000?

02:38 <Priit_M> 6 is huge

02:38 <John_Clay> my ibook was around 5-6 in the end

02:38 <John_Clay> heh

02:38 <zombie67> how do I measure load on my mac?

02:38 <John_Clay> was doing waay more than I should have

02:38 <John_Clay> zombie67: in the terminal, "uptime'

02:38 <John_Clay> 2:38  up 2 days,  4:44, 1 user, load averages: 0.00 0.02 0.04

02:39 <Priit_M> usual web browsing and listening music should raise load to about 0.3

02:39 <Priit_M> at most

02:39 <zombie67> % uptime

02:39 <zombie67> 23:39  up 7 days, 49 mins, 2 users, load averages: 8.42 8.62 8.79

02:39 <John_Clay> what sort of machine?

02:39 <zombie67> ;)

02:39 <zombie67> 8-way

02:39 <Priit_M> load 8, impressive

02:40 <zombie67> lemme look at one of my G4s

02:40 <Priit_M> doesn't it feel (very) slow

02:40 <John_Clay> zombie67: what specs are that machine?

02:40 <John_Clay> Ugh, the G4 days are scary.

02:40 <Romulus> whatever timezone kornbluth is in..

02:40 <John_Clay> I thought about hooking up a g4 400 for SETI etc, but it's not really worth it

02:41 <zombie67> my 1.25 PowerBook says:  1.86 1.22 1.08

02:41 <John_Clay> zombie67: what specs are that machine?

02:41 <John_Clay> the first one you did, w/ 8

02:41 <Priit_M> I was thinking of running seti on 500mhz celeron, but it would probably burn, because CPU has 2x2x1cm heatsink and no cooler

02:41 <John_Clay> hah

02:41 <zombie67> it is a dual Xeon 5365 (3.0ghz)

02:42 <John_Clay> Oo

02:42 <John_Clay> That's pretty high.

02:42 <John_Clay> Hackintosh?

02:42 <zombie67> Nope.  Mac Pro

02:42 <John_Clay> Luck ;)

02:42 <zombie67> the first 8-way

02:42 <efc> I don't suppose a G4 has the Altivec instructions?

02:42 <John_Clay> Lucky*

02:42 <zombie67> not the new one

02:42 <zombie67> which is faster!

02:42 <John_Clay> efc: yeah, g4's have altivec.. only difference between them an the G3s

02:43 <zombie67> I also have 3 8-way XP machines

02:43 <John_Clay> 8-way?

02:43 <John_Clay> wtf? :P

02:43 <John_Clay> 8 core?

02:43 <zombie67> yeah

02:43 <efc> If you're lucky, you might find an optimized client, but I've never looked into that on the PowerPC side

02:43 <John_Clay> meh

02:43 <John_Clay> PPC is a waste of time now.

02:43 <zombie67> I have a Quad G5 machine

02:44 <zombie67> no waste of time if the apps uses altvec!

02:44 <John_Clay> pfft

02:44 <zombie67> alexkan has an awesome one for SETI

02:44 <John_Clay> macbook wipes the floor with a quad

02:44 <John_Clay> for some stuff, anyway

02:44 <zombie67> nope

02:44 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

02:44 <efc> I admit I don't really know how to look at my output and see that the optimized client is doing any good..

02:44 <zombie67> I have a CD MBP

02:44 <zombie67> the quad is faster

02:45 <John_Clay> depends what you use it for :)

02:45 <zombie67> projects with PPC optimized apps:  SETI, Einstein

02:46 <zombie67> Team MacNN's Alex Kan has awesome optimized apps for SETI.  They blow the win opt apps out of the water.

02:46 <Romulus> Title: Top hosts (at setiathome.berkeley.edu)

02:47 <zombie67> take a good look at the top machines in the top 1-60

02:47 <zombie67> see all that darwin in the left column?

02:47 <zombie67> er, right

02:47 <Romulus> My youngest are 5 year olds and my friends just rescheduled our lunch for Saturday. Meaning I can find on Wikipedia is a first for several belated tragedies for me

02:47 <John_Clay> Anyway, I'm off. Thanks for all the help :)

02:47 *** John_Clay has left #boinc

02:48 <zombie67> then figure macs are only now approaching 10% in sales

02:48 <zombie67> JC!

02:48 <zombie67> wait!

02:48 <zombie67> are you running the stock seti app?

02:49 <zombie67> JC?

02:49 <efc> wow.. my RAC is about 150 :p

02:50 <zombie67> efc, what's your userid?

02:51 <zombie67> JC:  get the latest optimized app here:  http://tbp.berkeley.edu/~alexkan/seti/

02:51 <zombie67> JC:  come back here for install instructions if you need them

02:54 <efc> 174100

02:55 <zombie67> eh?  I meant your user name, or better yet, the URL to your BS stats

02:56 *** desti_T2 has joined #boinc

02:56 *** KathrynM has joined #boinc

02:56 <zombie67> Hi K!

02:57 <efc> oh well, boincstats is incredibly slow. its Eddie Cottongim

02:58 <zombie67> you have a split CPID?

02:58 <efc> i don't know why

02:59 <zombie67> lemme look

03:00 <zombie67> how many machines do you have?

03:00 <efc> 6 or 7 probably

03:00 <zombie67> grrr....  and they are hidden

03:00 <zombie67> so I cannot problem solve

03:01 <zombie67> I can see this much:  you have crunched for SETI and Einstein only.  correct?

03:01 <efc> yes

03:01 <efc> I didn't think my machines were normally hidden

03:02 <zombie67> ok.  attach each machine to both projects at least temporarily.  Have each machine crunch and return at least one valid result for each project.

03:02 <efc> http://boincstats.com/stats/host_stats.php?pr=sah&st=0&userid=174100

03:02 <zombie67> then detach at will.

03:02 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_cL> (at boincstats.com)

03:03 <efc> I do have one machine that hasn't returned a result yet.

03:03 <zombie67> http://boincstats.com/stats/boinc_user_graph.php?pr=bo&id=1477035

03:03 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_cN> (at boincstats.com)

03:03 <zombie67> then click on hosts

03:05 <efc> hmm, nothing there

03:05 <zombie67> exactly!  That is what they look like when hiddent

03:06 <zombie67> are you sure they are visible for both projects?

03:06 <efc> Well, I didn't hide them, and I can see them on the other account.

03:07 <zombie67> fair enough.  crunch both projects for each machine, and all will be well.

03:07 <zombie67> you have the same email and password on both projects??

03:08 <efc> for seti and einstein? Yes, I guess so, haven't messed with that in ages.

03:08 <efc> As far as my second "account" I don't even know how I would get into that on the boinc site.

03:11 <efc> Microsoft Windows 95

03:34 <KathrynM> 8 foreign teachers and 10 korean teachers on our side of the building

03:34 <KathrynM> don't know how many korean teachers on the other side

03:35 <clusty> how do the local guys look at foreigners?

03:35 <clusty> pests or they welcome you :D

03:35 <KathrynM> most are very welcoming

03:36 <clusty> in germany they are a bit annoyed: unless you speak perfect german

03:36 <KathrynM> well, that would leave me out

03:36 <KathrynM> I don't speak a lick of German

03:36 <clusty> they either dont feel like speaking english or not in the mood to figure out what one is saying

03:36 <KathrynM> lol

03:38 <clusty> i fall in second :D

03:38 <clusty> can speak but with bad grammar

03:38 <KathrynM> :)

04:48 <KathrynM> oh healthy

04:48 <CoderForLife> the breakfast of Coders

04:48 <CoderForLife> good stuff

04:49 <KathrynM> thought that was a triple espresso

04:49 <KathrynM> Oh wait, that's the breakfast of teachers :)

04:49 *** clusty has joined #boinc

04:49 <CoderForLife> I'm not a coffee guy

04:49 <CoderForLife> I take my caffeine ..cold..

04:53 <KathrynM> lol

04:53 <KathrynM> hiya clusty

04:53 <clusty> hey

04:53 <clusty> meeting's over?

04:53 <KathrynM> yeah

04:53 <KathrynM> got a preview of what's to come next week

04:54 <clusty> and i guess you ran in fear since you arrived this sson

04:54 <clusty> :D

04:54 <KathrynM> I went from 5 afternoon classes to 8 and I'm a homeroom teacher for a morning class :/

04:54 <KathrynM> not excited at all

04:54 <KathrynM> Heh.  I live right next door to the school :)

04:55 <clusty> thought so

04:55 <CoderForLife> got some LHC WUs overnight

04:55 <clusty> whats LHC?

04:56 <KathrynM> Large Hadron Collider

04:56 <KathrynM> I got some too.

04:56 <CoderForLife> LHC@Home

04:56 <clusty> sounds fancy :D

04:56 <KathrynM> I'd check and see what's on the machine now, but my network is slow and that hangs the manager like crazy.

04:56 <clusty> i dumped all big projects and attached to some smaller ones

04:57 * KathrynM wishes Rom would hurry up and release a new Linux version.

04:57 <KathrynM> Although I could compile it myself...

04:57 <KathrynM> the client at least.  I don't think I have the proper sacrifices to get the manager to compile.

04:57 <clusty> its peanuts to compile it

04:58 <clusty> i can guide you through if you wish

04:58 <KathrynM> client yes

04:58 <clusty> server as well

04:58 <KathrynM> I've heard horror storries about compiling the manager

04:58 <clusty> from me

04:58 <clusty> :D

04:58 <KathrynM> I'll pass on the server.  I'm delightfully ignorant of all that

04:58 <clusty> linux or windows?

04:59 <KathrynM> linux

04:59 <KathrynM> I would rather teacher 3 year olds than try VS again.

04:59 <clusty> good choice

04:59 <clusty> :D

04:59 <KathrynM> :)

05:00 <KathrynM> I fought with it for like 3 weekends and gave up.

05:00 <CoderForLife> hmm  first time I've seen this:  2/21/2008 1:07:27 AM|QMC@HOME|[error] Checksum or signature error for Chkpoint000.one_3p11_isomersm-ecp2

05:00 <clusty> i kinda got the hang of it

05:00 <KathrynM> corrupted file CoderForLife?

05:00 <KathrynM> post it over at QMC.  I'll have Martin take a look at it.

05:00 <CoderForLife> I reckon

05:01 <CoderForLife> I don't often browse Messages, but this one was red

05:01 <KathrynM> gotta love the red messages

05:01 <CoderForLife> they mean either "love", or "danger", or both

05:02 <clusty> :D

05:02 <KathrynM> http://maxwell.dhcp.umsl.edu/brats/workunit.php?wuid=397

05:02 <KathrynM> nice :-)

05:02 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_e+> (at maxwell.dhcp.umsl.edu)

05:02 <KathrynM> nearly triple granted of what I claimed

05:04 <clusty> well the latest svn revision of boinc compiles just fine

05:04 <CoderForLife> I am not familiar with this project

05:04 <KathrynM> very small

05:05 <KathrynM> still trying to get off the ground.

05:05 <CoderForLife> you're the only TFFE member

07:35 <clusty> because of some stupid MMORPG i got hoked on

07:35 <KathrynM> I've taken in the Fedora LiveCD just so I don't have to use the infested Win boxes

07:35 <clusty> dont like lhc :(

07:35 <clusty> no funny pix for me

07:36 <KathrynM> awwwwwwwwww

07:36 <clusty> and plus 8h jobs feel less rewarding than 1h ones

07:36 <clusty> :D

07:36 <clusty> i will stiuck to my spinhinger

07:36 <KathrynM> it's really intersting when you get the ones that are only a few seconds.

07:36 <clusty> not very erfficient those

07:37 <KathrynM> but important

07:37 <clusty> my tasks are for now around 5-10 sec each

07:37 <KathrynM> it's in those that the beam runs into the wall and destroys the LHC

08:23 <KathrynM> I think Hardy is 8.04

08:23 <clusty> yeah hardy is not Long Term Support

08:23 <clusty> i had hardy alpha 2

08:23 <clusty> but was too annoying

08:24 <clusty> will wait till alpha 6 or so

08:24 <KathrynM> I'm not a big *buntu fan...

08:24 <clusty> i am

08:24 <clusty> :D

08:24 <KathrynM> :)

08:24 <clusty> i am not a red hat fan

08:24 <clusty> there

08:24 <clusty> :D

08:24 <KathrynM> i am

08:24 <KathrynM> :)

08:24 <clusty> take that....

08:24 <KathrynM> pffft

08:24 <KathrynM> Maybe if I had started with Kubuntu.

08:24 <KathrynM> I think I associate *buntu too much with Gnome.

08:25 <KathrynM> And I despise Gnome.

08:25 <clusty> i am a gnome person

08:25 <clusty> as well

08:25 <clusty> :D

08:25 <KathrynM> LOL

08:25 <clusty> anything else you hate?

08:25 <clusty> :D

08:26 <clusty> spit it out now, and I might forgive you :D

08:26 <clusty> i used to be a fan of minimalistic windows managers

08:27 <clusty> like fluxbox and such

08:27 <KathrynM> Well, I used to hate the CLI.... but not anymore

08:27 <KathrynM> Does Vista count?

08:27 <clusty> mostly because i had a crappy machine

08:27 <clusty> i dont despise vista

08:27 <clusty> its slow and that

08:27 <clusty> but looks funky

08:28 <clusty> a bit of a OSX ripoff but you can't expect much of billy anyways :D

08:28 <KathrynM> LOL

08:28 <KathrynM> I wouldn't say I Despise Vista.

08:28 <KathrynM> But I do have a strong dislike for it.

08:30 <KathrynM> brb... gotta reply to an email

08:31 <KathrynM> clusty, you're a project admin...

08:31 <KathrynM> What would you say to a user who has an inappropriate avatar.

08:31 <KathrynM> Basically you want him/her/it to change or remove the avatar.

08:33 <clusty> KathrynM, CHANGE YOUR AVATAR

08:34 <clusty> ...and while you're at it do yourself a face life :D

08:34 <clusty> and I dont like your race/religion/momma :D

11:01 <CoderForLife> a quick _o/

11:01 <PovAddict> seems to do too much I/O, hawmps

11:01 <PovAddict> _o/ CoderForLife

11:02 <PovAddict> I had a 14-hour power outage

11:03 <CoderForLife> ungood - no Boinc

11:03 <PovAddict> and no working fridge...

11:03 <CoderForLife> eek

11:03 <PovAddict> power company apparently won't care about lost food in fridge or anything else

11:03 <CoderForLife> send them the bill

11:04 <CoderForLife> for the lost WU time

11:04 <PovAddict> my dad already called them - they won't pay for any "damage" of that kind

11:04 * CoderForLife tries to coax a few more WUs out of LHC

11:04 <CoderForLife> what if your life support system stopped?

11:05 <PovAddict> you'd have to involve lawyers, I guess

11:06 <CoderForLife> your survivors would... =)

11:06 <PovAddict> some silly curious is clicking on every single file I have on my webserver

11:06 <PovAddict> eating my upload bandwidth

11:07 <PovAddict> like a lot

11:07 * PovAddict plinks him for a while

11:07 <CoderForLife> that's what I told a guy when we went off-road in a four-wheel-drive Trooper - I wanted him to drive, so my widow could sue his widow

11:08 * PovAddict searches for mod_bandwidth

11:08 <CoderForLife> the gentle sound of falling IPs - plink plink plink

11:10 <PovAddict> I don't want to block his IP

11:10 <PovAddict> just avoid him from using all my bandwidth downloading five files at a time...

11:13 <PovAddict> I'd like some advanced settings like... start limiting bandwidth after that IP downloads X megabytes

11:13 <PovAddict> so that people who just download a single file never get the bw limited, but somebody eating my whole server gets into slow-mode

14:22 <PovAddict> 24th

14:23 <freelarry> good - time enough to clear some of the wu's off these machines - limited several to only 4 projects verse 11 to 12 they were running

14:24 <freelarry> that way still have bu wu's

14:24 <PovAddict> 24th of MARCH

15:49 <PovAddict> whenever the project URL changes, problems happen

15:49 <PovAddict> alwaysays

15:50 <yoyo[RKN]> as expected :(

15:50 *** Starfury^ has quit IRC

15:50 <PovAddict> so, first ste

15:50 <PovAddict> p

15:50 <PovAddict> the URL you're changing to... better be pretty permanent

15:51 <yoyo[RKN]> hmm, so I keep the redirect on the old server

15:51 <PovAddict> I mean, the URL itself

15:51 <PovAddict> better have no dependencies on the server or whatever

15:52 <PovAddict> to make sure you won't need to change it *again* within the next few *years*

16:04 <freelarry> that cpu/price chart would be better if had cpu names

16:05 <freelarry> not just amd or intel color

16:05 <PovAddict> well he was just starting

16:05 <PovAddict> and posted the interesting result of the graph looking random

16:05 <freelarry> lol yeah a little to early to post it yet

16:05 <PovAddict> instead of a nice curve or something

16:06 <freelarry> nope thats why names important - to much variation in cpu architechure

16:06 <PovAddict> well he's not comparing GHz

16:06 <PovAddict> he's comparing results of a CPU benchmark

16:06 <freelarry> but shows highest pass marks are intel at highest prices

16:07 <freelarry> which is kind of expected

18:18 <KathrynM> I'm good for confusing people

18:18 <PovAddict> and for getting confused?

18:18 <CoderForLife> driveway has about 5 inches of white death on it

18:57 <MTughan> Considering a new video card for my new comp.

18:57 <MTughan> The Radeon HD3650. Replacing the HD2600 XT I was considering.

18:58 <MTughan> About $20 more, but faster.

18:58 <xcamel> not an ATI fan..

18:58 <Romulus> I was meaning to ask him to give up any of the machines have the energy or consentration span for it

18:58 <MTughan> Slightly faster than an 8800GT.

19:35 <CoderForLife> how long was that?

19:35 * CoderForLife scrolls backwards

19:36 <CoderForLife> hey not bad

19:36 <wdsmia> CoderForLife Online: 2d.2h.43m.38s

19:36 <CoderForLife> lol

19:36 <CoderForLife> feels like that long

19:36 <MTughan> Oh reminds me, I wanted to check the uptime on my Linux comp...

19:37 * CoderForLife hands are tingling

19:37 <CoderForLife> we're talking power equipment here

19:37 <MTughan> 15 days... Seems that it should be longer than that...

19:37 <MTughan> Oh, I know. Because I had to restart for a kernel update.

19:38 <CoderForLife> that's always a tough choice - uptime or update

19:38 <CoderForLife> seems like time and date should play together better

19:39 <wdsmia> then downtime trying to fix the update

19:39 <xcamel> get ahead of the snow?

19:39 <CoderForLife> the snow changed to sleet right on cue

19:39 <xcamel> ick.

19:39 <xcamel> btw - mission accomplished..

19:39 <CoderForLife> got the big bulk off the drive before it got a hard shell

19:40 <CoderForLife> hey - that's good news

19:40 <MTughan> What mission is that?

19:40 <CoderForLife> any hitches?

19:40 *** efc has joined #boinc

19:40 <xcamel> everything in and no disasters..

19:40 <CoderForLife> most highly excellent

19:40 <efc> Moo

19:40 <xcamel> other than the color of the stove - which worked out OK

19:41 <MTughan> Oh, and xcamel: I said the ATI card was slightly faster than an 8800GT. It's actually slightly faster than an 8600GT.

19:41 <xcamel> was s/b titanium/white and came titanium/black

19:41 <xcamel> but it still looks good..

19:42 * efc reads the next big video card review

20:17 <PovAddict> server is really clogged with all the uploads...

20:17 <CoderForLife> Ok time to hit the couch

20:17 <PovAddict> and no, far from done; just all sent :)

20:17 <zombie67> I can see that

20:18 <PovAddict> I may force resends on some if they take too long to come back

20:18 <zombie67> why not just use short deadline?

20:18 * CoderForLife tosses a snowball at wdsmia on the way out

20:19 * wdsmia ducks

20:19 <PovAddict> there's 35MB of stuff on the upload dir...

20:19 <zombie67> it's in my way!

20:20 <PovAddict> now 28MB (stuff gets removed from there when assimilated)

20:21 <zombie67> what is the largest resource you can enter at a projexct?

20:22 <PovAddict> what do you mean?

20:22 <PovAddict> share?

20:22 <zombie67> yeah

20:22 <PovAddict> I dunno...

20:22 <zombie67> your site is almost as slow as AI

20:22 <Tank_Master> lol

20:22 <PovAddict> you sure it's not your end?

20:22 <Tank_Master> "almost"

20:23 <PovAddict> *your* end getting super-slow due to so many uploads

20:23 <zombie67> no

20:23 <PovAddict> remember you have many computers...

20:24 <zombie67> it iw waiting on response from your server

20:24 <PovAddict> sum of all them uploading...

20:24 <zombie67> DL is much faster than UL

20:24 <PovAddict> yay, more than half done

20:24 <zombie67> other sites are snappy

20:24 <PovAddict> now it will get faster... :P

20:25 <PovAddict> omg 18 uploads going on at once

20:25 *** Celelibi has quit IRC

20:25 <zombie67> from who?  me?

20:25 <PovAddict> no, total file_upload_handlers running on the server

20:25 <PovAddict> so in general

20:25 <PovAddict> down to 13

20:25 <zombie67> ah

20:27 <zombie67> can't upload any more "maintenance"

20:27 <PovAddict> yep I disabled uploads till it went down

20:28 <PovAddict> flood gates open again

20:28 <PovAddict> 5!

20:28 <PovAddict> added to server_status

20:29 <zombie67> 23

20:33 <zombie67> I have one machine with about 50 all waiting to upload

20:43 <PovAddict> how many now?

20:43 <PovAddict> I will wait for the resends until the upload count gets to 0

20:44 <zombie67> lots.  A few of my machines had a cc_config file that increased the uploads/project from 2 to 8.  So everything was uploading extra slow.  I put them back to normal (2).  that should help

20:44 <MTughan> Wow... Seems my 2.8GHz P4 generates more credits than the much faster Core Duo Mac...

20:45 <zombie67> depends on the project

20:45 <zombie67> which one?

20:45 <MTughan> Running RS for the most part.

20:46 <MTughan> The P4.

20:46 <MTughan> My Mac runs an assortment of projects.

20:46 <zombie67> doesn't RS use fixed credits?

20:47 <MTughan> Could be.

20:47 <zombie67> how do you know you mac makes less at RS?

20:47 <MTughan> It doesn't make anything at RS.

20:48 <MTughan> I'm talking overall across all projects.

20:48 <zombie67> ah.  which projects for the mac?  some of them have really poor osx apps

20:48 <MTughan> Remember, I'm just developing the Mac apps for RS now.

20:48 <zombie67> right, that confused me

20:49 <MTughan> ABC, SIMAP, AI, E@H, POEM, RCN, SETI, sudoku, superlink, TSP, WCG, and yoyo.

20:49 <Romulus> http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/comic.php

20:49 <MTughan> Wow, that took you a while...

20:49 <zombie67> for einstein, be sure to use the beta app

20:49 <zombie67> cut crunch time in half

20:49 <MTughan> I just heard about it today, so I'm gonna check it out.

20:50 <MTughan> I have two E@H WUs now.

20:50 <zombie67> WCG gives crap credits, especially for macs

20:50 <zombie67> yoyo is good

20:50 <MTughan> Got 4 there.

20:50 <zombie67> tsp BF on macs is bad

20:50 <MTughan> WCG. 5 yoyos.

20:50 <MTughan> No BF.

20:51 <zombie67> the other factor is that RS pays VERY well with credits...

20:58 <MTughan> zombie67: Where's the beta E@H app?

20:58 <PovAddict> AGH

20:58 <PovAddict> I was just looking at a webpage with mostly pink background

20:58 <PovAddict> now I closed the tab, and white seems green-ish

21:21 <MTughan> Is there a way for me to compile the core client with x86_64 as the default platform?

21:21 <PovAddict> that + button...

21:21 <PovAddict> Add Bookmark

21:21 <MTughan> Yeah, Apple does + and - buttons.

21:21 <PovAddict> Mail Link to this Page

21:21 <PovAddict> Add to Home Screen

21:21 <PovAddict> those are the options

21:21 <PovAddict> seems when I pressed the +, I only saw the 'add bookmark' and skipped the rest...

21:22 <PovAddict> anyway, can't do much with safari on the ipod...

21:22 <PovAddict> as long as I have this crappy router, internet works for 30 seconds at a time

21:24 <PovAddict> zombie_67: 127 resends

21:26 <MTughan> PovAddict: What does this mean?

21:26 <MTughan> checking jpeglib.h presence... no

21:26 <MTughan> configure: WARNING: jpeglib.h: accepted by the compiler, rejected by the preprocessor!

21:26 <MTughan> configure: WARNING: jpeglib.h: proceeding with the compiler's result

21:26 <PovAddict> ask config.log

21:26 <MTughan> Good point...

21:27 <MTughan> Ah, I see... Missed a configure flag.

21:27 <zombie_67> I am not done uploading

21:27 <zombie_67> but okay

21:27 <MTughan> My configure line now:

21:27 * xcamel is away: Gone away for now.

21:27 *** xcamel is now known as xcamel_away

21:27 <MTughan> ./configure --disable-server --disable-client CFLAGS="-isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk -arch x86_64 -mmacosx-version-min=10.5 -O1 -I/opt/local/include" CXXFLAGS="-isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk -arch x86_64 -mmacosx-version-min=10.5 -O1 -I/opt/local/include" CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/local/include LDFLAGS="-Wl,-syslibroot,/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk -L/opt/local/lib" --host=x86_64-apple-darwin9 --with-apple-opengl-framewor

21:28 <PovAddict> *splode*

21:28 <MTughan> For x86_64.

21:51 <PovAddict> zombie_67: ping

21:52 <PovAddict> zombie_67: how are uploads going on host #113?

21:52 <PovAddict> http://impfarm.imp.org/boinc/workunit.php?wuid=6990 <- one of the *seven* missing workunits

21:52 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_w7> (at impfarm.imp.org)

21:52 <zombie_67> which is 113?

21:52 <PovAddict> 'thor'

21:53 <zombie_67> communication was deffered

21:53 <zombie_67> just hit update

21:53 <PovAddict> on uploads or reporting?

21:53 <zombie_67> reportinf

21:53 <PovAddict> whoa none missing now! it's all done!

21:53 <zombie_67> how about now?

21:53 <zombie_67> one of mine?

21:54 <zombie_67> cool

21:54 <PovAddict> seems that machine had all those 7 (maybe paired with another host, if it was a resend)

21:54 <PovAddict> &echo 221: [boincerr -221], 187: [boincerr -187]

21:54 <Romulus> 221: Aborted by project , 187: result upload failed

21:55 <PovAddict> all images put together: 343MB

21:55 <zombie_67> wow.  I just made a whopping 164 credits!

21:56 <zombie_67> ;)

21:56 <PovAddict> RAC on whole project: 28.524274

21:56 <zombie_67> I saw your server abort one on one of my machines

21:56 <PovAddict> although that's not really accurate to know how much power is available, unless there is constant work for a whole week

21:56 <zombie_67> yeah, I was suspending other projects to make this go fater too

21:56 <zombie_67> faster

21:58 <PovAddict> as soon as there's no more work in progress, I'll send the delete requests for input files

21:58 <zombie_67> do I have any of them?

22:08 <zombie_67> oo!  Docking had work!

22:08 <PovAddict> I just got their newsletter

22:09 <zombie_67> I didn't

22:11 <zombie_67> work for other platforms.  not win or mac.  must be linux?

22:11 <zombie_67> b 22, 2008 3:30:00

22:11 <zombie_67> To see if everything is still working as it is supposed to work, we have just generated 10 workunits (30 results) 5 minutes ago. The protein-ligand combination is the same we have been using at UTEP (1tng_mod0011), but as this is only for testing that's okay. Let us know if things look okay on your boinc clients and we keep an eye on the server. Thanks!

22:18 * KathrynM is back (gone 03:06:30)

22:19 <zombie_67> docking just sent out some test WUs

22:19 <PovAddict> wb

22:20 <KathrynM> thx

22:20 <KathrynM> what platform for docking?

22:20 <zombie_67> just about all

22:20 <zombie_67> I think the test WUs are for linux

22:20 <PovAddict> URL?

22:20 <KathrynM> Not getting them on my Linux host

22:20 <zombie_67> they have a really complicated HR class

22:20 <KathrynM> oh right

22:20 <KathrynM> now I remember

22:20 <PovAddict> lazy to look it up -- URL?

22:20 <zombie_67> http://docking.cis.udel.edu/server_status.php

22:20 <Romulus> Title: Server status page (at docking.cis.udel.edu)

22:21 <PovAddict> I meant to attach but thx

22:21 <PovAddict> so many projects, so few computers

22:21 <zombie_67> heh, i have 49,023 there

22:22 <zombie_67> a new project to get to 100k

22:22 * KathrynM wishes zombie_67 would send a compy or 2 to korea

22:23 <zombie_67> heh

22:23 <KathrynM> I'd give a Mac a nice home ;)

22:23 * PovAddict curses his router

22:23 <zombie_67> I'm sure.

22:24 * KathrynM gives PovAddict 's router a dirty look.

22:24 <PovAddict> my dad's mac sometimes has trouble to get on wi-fi

22:25 <PovAddict> my ipod touch lasts 30 seconds connected until everything stops working

22:25 <zombie_67> ugh, their server is still old

22:26 <PovAddict> I'll upgrade it for 20 bucks

22:28 <zombie_67> POV, you blew it.

22:28 <PovAddict> no I didnt :|

22:28 <Romulus> CoderForLife: running sqlite 2.8 with the branch and bound stuff.

22:28 <zombie_67> NM, I just missed it

22:28 <zombie_67> I thought you forgot to post RSS news

22:36 <zombie_67> all the LHC work is gone

22:40 *** Soul_keeper has quit IRC

22:53 <MTughan> PovAddict: http://bob.myisland.as/tsp/result.php?resultid=1555945

22:53 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_x5> (at bob.myisland.as)

22:53 <MTughan> Could that be a permissions issue?

22:53 <PovAddict> could be yeah

22:54 <PovAddict> &boincerr -185

22:54 <Romulus> PovAddict: result start failed

22:54 <MTughan> I've had BURP WUs fail too, checking their statuses.

22:54 <MTughan> And it seems that the BURP site just dropped...

22:55 <MTughan> There it goes...

22:55 <MTughan> WTF? "Sorry. The project server is currently under heavy load and has had to temporarily reject requests from your IP."

22:55 <PovAddict> looks like a BURP-specific feature

22:56 <MTughan> Makes sense.

22:56 <MTughan> Again when I tried to get the result...

22:56 <MTughan> Well, the link: http://burp.boinc.dk/result.php?resultid=3897841

22:56 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_x9> (at burp.boinc.dk)

22:56 <MTughan> That's one that failed, can't check it though.

22:56 <PovAddict> same error

22:57 <MTughan> Here we go... http://burp.boinc.dk/result.php?resultid=3587120

22:57 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_x$> (at burp.boinc.dk)

22:57 <PovAddict> same error

22:57 <MTughan> Same error, so could be permissions. I was running it under my account. Should I run run_client under root?

22:57 <PovAddict> I'm not sure about mac...

22:58 <MTughan> Linux.

22:58 <PovAddict> then: no you shouldn't, since that would make the client and the science apps be root too

22:58 <MTughan> Mac's fine, this is my Fedora machine.

22:58 <MTughan> Under the boinc user?

22:58 <PovAddict> oh you actually have a boinc user?

22:59 <PovAddict> then of course under that one :)

22:59 <MTughan> Dunno, I think so.

22:59 <PovAddict> who owns the data files?

22:59 <PovAddict> client state and such

22:59 <MTughan> Checking...

22:59 <MTughan> Most are mtughan:mtughan in the top-level dir, but two are root:root.

23:00 <MTughan> I did run it as root a few times.

23:00 <PovAddict> ugh

23:00 <PovAddict> which two are root?

23:00 <MTughan> job_log_www.intelligencerealm.com_aisystem.txt and global_prefs_override.xml

23:00 <MTughan> They're now mtughan:mtughn

23:00 <PovAddict> cd to boinc directory as root and chown -R mtughan:mtughan

23:00 <MTughan> mtughan*

23:01 <PovAddict> (make sure not to run that from the wrong directory...!!)

23:01 <MTughan> Done.

23:01 <MTughan> Restart the core client?

23:01 <PovAddict> now try starting it from your account

23:01 <MTughan> I actually never shut down the client...

23:02 <PovAddict> wow

23:02 <PovAddict> http://news.povray.org/povray.off-topic/thread/%3C47be453a%40news.povray.org%3E/

23:02 <Romulus> <http://ln-s.net/1_xC> (at news.povray.org)

23:03 <MTughan> Core client restarted.

23:03 <MTughan> lol, nice...

23:04 * KathrynM sighs

23:04 <KathrynM> I wish it were 6:00

23:04 <PovAddict> why?

23:05 <KathrynM> 6 = weekend

23:05 <MTughan> I get the day off school tomorrow. :D

23:05 <KathrynM> :)

23:05 <KathrynM> gotta go back to school now.  Gonna give my next class writing practice.  They get to print "How are you?  I am happy." 15 times.

23:06 <MTughan> Typing class?

23:06 <KathrynM> gotta love 5 year olds :/

23:06 <PovAddict> writing class

23:06 <MTughan> Ah...

23:06 <KathrynM> heck no.  pencil and paper

23:06 <KathrynM> :)

23:06 <KathrynM> laters

23:06 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

23:06 <MTughan> What, they're gonna bash the keyboards?

23:06 <MTughan> The kids in JK at my old school use the computers. Those are 4-year olds.

23:06 <PovAddict> they're used to writing those korean hieroglyphs

23:06 <PovAddict> err characters

23:06 <MTughan> Not often, but still...

23:06 <zombie_67> gotta run

23:07 <zombie_67> c ya

23:07 <MTughan> PovAddict: You can use a QWERTY keyboard to type Korean.

23:07 <PovAddict> MTughan: korean kids may not know how to write in our alphabet?

23:07 <Bad_At_Home> evening all

23:08 <MTughan> And how do you think that our Korean trade student knows the keys if he's never seen an English keyboard? He can type Korean on it easily enough.

23:08 <MTughan> 'lo Bad

23:08 <PovAddict> I'm not talking about keyboards

23:09 <MTughan> What then?

23:10 <PovAddict> what if I give you a paper and tell you to write some korean letters; even if you don't know korean language

23:10 <MTughan> I'm not saying they have to write in English for them to type.

23:11 <PovAddict> and I'm not talking about keyboards

23:11 <MTughan> Okay... I don't think we're understanding each other...
