01:44 <Tank_Master> willy finally took off siclink from the "sign up for proj" page

01:44 <zombie67> heh

01:44 <zombie67> should move it to retired too

01:45 <Tank_Master> I have 15 projects attached to this comp - only 3 are getting work ;)

01:46 <zombie67> ?  really?

01:47 <Wabbit> wow

01:47 <Wabbit> my 10 projects are getting work

01:47 *** Wabbit is now known as Wabbit98

01:48 <Tank_Master> ABC - APS - AIS - Bratz - chess - seasonal - depspid - docking - greasom - Imp - LHC - Pirates - scilink - TSP - WCG

01:48 <Tank_Master> ABC, TSP and WCG are the only 3 getting work

01:48 <Wabbit98> anyone have an invitation code to Imp?

01:49 <Tank_Master> I did

01:49 <Tank_Master> but it dont work no more

01:49 <Tank_Master> ask pov

01:49 <Tank_Master> its his

01:49 <zombie67> 64 bit?

01:49 <Tank_Master> but work is rare

01:50 <Tank_Master> ?

01:50 <zombie67> is your machine 64 bit?

01:50 <Tank_Master> corse

01:50 <Tank_Master> and yes, I know theres a workaround for chess

01:50 <zombie67> then chess will never give work, even when there is some

01:50 <Tank_Master> Im just lazy

01:50 <zombie67> seasonal is dead

01:50 <zombie67> scilink is dead

01:51 <Tank_Master> I just finished a WU a few days ago

01:51 <Tank_Master> got a few more on my last one

01:51 <zombie67> no new work from seasonal

01:51 <zombie67> gerosim has work only occasionally

01:51 <Tank_Master> gresom I sware stoped handing out work the day I attached

01:52 <zombie67> I am willing to bet it is another 64 bit issue

01:52 <Wabbit98> I blame TM

01:52 *** Wabbit67 has quit IRC

01:52 <zombie67> recall they are trying to rewrite the boinc server code in win

01:52 <Tank_Master> I blams global diming

01:53 <Tank_Master> thats a worthy project

01:53 <Tank_Master> no reason it must be down in unix just because unix is free

01:53 <zombie67> TM, the work around is as simple as d/l the zip file from my page, ad copying it to your project folder

01:53 <Tank_Master> done*

01:53 <Tank_Master> do you realize just how lazy I can be?

01:53 <zombie67> it's done in linux, not unix

01:54 <Tank_Master> same diff

01:54 <zombie67> not even close

01:54 <zombie67> ;)

01:54 <Tank_Master> close, it is

01:54 <zombie67> true

01:57 <efc> No oscars for Grindhouse, i'm heardbroken

03:32 <efc> Ok.. gotta get to bed

03:32 <efc> whats that?

03:32 <mweltin> some guy ran my instance of the tsp through concord

03:32 <mweltin> came up with a good solution

03:32 <mweltin> may be optimal.

03:32 <mweltin> STL = Standard template library.

03:33 <efc> oh yeah

03:33 <mweltin> yeah

03:33 <mweltin> I haven't had tiem to check it out

03:33 <mweltin> but it got me jazzed to do more algorithm work.

03:34 <mweltin> I have felt like I need to improve my apps more but I'm just running into trouble.

03:34 <efc> Sorry, gotta get to bed. Good luck with it.

03:54 <mweltin> thanks Tidus

03:57 *** clusty has joined #boinc

03:57 <mweltin> clusty!

03:57 <clusty> hey

03:58 <clusty> missed you amigo

03:58 <clusty> :D

03:58 <clusty> dud

03:58 <mweltin> long time

03:58 <clusty> i did not know I was talking to an important fella

03:58 <clusty> the big daddy master chief from TSP

03:58 * clusty bows

03:58 <clusty> :D

03:58 <mweltin> LOL

03:58 <mweltin> hahahahahahahaah

03:58 <clusty> thought you were a more advanced punk

03:58 <mweltin> big master that can't even build a simple stlport app

03:58 <clusty> :D

03:59 <clusty> happens to the best of us

03:59 <mweltin> I'm just some guy you know

03:59 <clusty> i actually figured out your problem with STLPORT

03:59 <clusty> :D

04:00 <clusty> some colleague from work had same issue

04:00 <clusty> :D

04:00 <clusty> some libs were built with stlport

04:00 <mweltin> really cause I can't get boinc libs to build right with it.

04:00 <clusty> and some others with some other stl

04:00 <mweltin> std ?

04:00 <clusty> that

04:01 <clusty> i will give it a shot today

04:01 <mweltin> I have officially given up (as per the news on tsp) but I'm giving it more try right now.

04:01 <mweltin> crunch3r has done it

04:01 <mweltin> so I know it's possible

04:01 <clusty> btw

04:02 <clusty> over weekend my boinc generated 250GB of logfiles

04:02 <clusty> :D

04:02 <mweltin> yeah that can happen, although 250GB seems way too big.

04:02 <yoyo[RKN]> clusty : I have a boinc server?

04:02 <mweltin> how on earth did you manage that.

04:02 <clusty> well i forgot one client turned on

04:03 <clusty> yoyo[RKN], you mean me?

04:03 <yoyo[RKN]> yes sorry

04:03 <clusty> i started a work gen

04:03 <clusty> and forgot a client on

04:03 <clusty> :D

04:03 <clusty> yoyo[RKN], yeah

04:03 <clusty> starting

04:03 <yoyo[RKN]> aha

04:03 <clusty> its prebeta though

04:03 <mweltin> but still 250GB

04:03 <yoyo[RKN]> what does it calculate

04:03 <clusty> well uppercase that lasts 5 seconds

04:03 <clusty> :D

04:04 <mweltin> AHAHAHAAHA

04:04 <clusty> yoyo[RKN], neural nets

04:04 <clusty> for now

04:04 <yoyo[RKN]> for uppercase is a commandline switch to let it run longer

04:04 <clusty> actually not uppercase

04:04 <clusty> but wrapper

04:04 <yoyo[RKN]> like me ;)

04:04 <CoderForLife> breakfast time  bbiab

04:05 <clusty> i am not the nnet guy

04:05 <clusty> i am just boincifying

04:05 <mweltin> I have to look into that wrapper someday.

04:05 <clusty> all possible apps

04:05 <clusty> mweltin, its genious

04:05 <clusty> same app

04:05 <yoyo[RKN]> my wrapper project

04:05 <Romulus> Title: yoyo@home (at

04:06 <clusty> with a minor twist to some xml it read can make almost any app boinc compliant

04:07 <mweltin> thats nice, I just got some free ACO stuff online, the wrapper would be an easy way to get it up and running fast

04:07 <clusty> indeed

04:07 <clusty> yoyo what are you crunching?

04:08 <yoyo[RKN]> a math project, ogr-25

04:08 <clusty> what does it do?

04:08 <yoyo[RKN]> and an evolution@home project which simulates evolutions

04:08 * KathrynM is back (gone 08:57:55)

04:08 <KathrynM> evenin all

04:08 <clusty> rabbit/wolf simulation? :D

04:09 <mweltin> KathrynM!

04:09 <clusty> ahow kath

04:09 <clusty> ahoy*

04:09 <yoyo[RKN]> clusty : it searches for an optimal golumb ruler of length 25

04:09 <Romulus> Title: Golomb ruler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

04:09 <KathrynM> hi mweltin and clusty

04:09 <yoyo[RKN]> morning KathrynM

04:09 <KathrynM> hi yoyo[RKN]

04:09 <clusty> yoyo[RKN], read about it. did not understand much :D

04:09 <clusty> should give it more than 20sec i guess

04:10 <yoyo[RKN]> lol

04:10 <mweltin> that poor shark in the upper right

04:10 <mweltin> sharks get a bad wrap.

04:10 <clusty> mweltin, were you the fella not liking sharks?

04:11 <mweltin> I saw a reef shark just the other day

04:11 <clusty> sharks are cool

04:11 <clusty> ...behind a thick glass window

04:11 <mweltin> I said they freak me out, but not that I didn't like them.

04:11 <CoderForLife> back

04:12 <clusty> are sharks aggro?

04:12 <clusty> in your region

04:12 <mweltin> no, just curious

04:12 <clusty> then they are nice guys

04:13 <mweltin> hammer heads will "taste" almost anything.

04:13 <clusty> as long as they dont give you a big smile :D

04:13 <mweltin> and reef sharks don't attache humans

04:13 <clusty> i used to have gold fish. trained them to scratch their bellies

04:13 <clusty> :D

04:13 <clusty> when I fed them

04:13 <mweltin> the one I saw the other day was 2 maybe 3 feet long

04:14 <clusty> can you get that close to them?

04:14 <mweltin> that one was close enough to touch

04:15 <mweltin> but they wont let you touch them.

04:15 <clusty> well I'll go to marseille soon enough

04:15 <clusty> prolly not as cool as samoa, but close ebnough to dive

04:15 <clusty> have a diving maniac buddy

04:16 <mweltin> samoa is not all sunshine and rainbows, but its not bad

04:16 <clusty> i imagine it being something like cancun :D

04:16 <clusty> emerald watters and white sand beaches

04:16 <mweltin> coral here is great

04:16 <mweltin> parts are that way, but it has its ugly side too.

04:17 <clusty> my paps always said I have weird dreams

04:17 <clusty> i always dreamt to work for national geographic

04:17 <clusty> to take pix of underwater animals

04:17 <mweltin> not weird at all.

04:17 <clusty> swim with the fishes for a living

04:18 <clusty> ...and for a question:

04:18 <mweltin> life on a boat can't be much fun, but the diving would be great.

04:19 <clusty> this line gives me an erorr:

04:19 <clusty> self.xml     = xml.dom.minidom.parse(self.filename)

04:19 <mweltin> where is it from?

04:20 <clusty> boinc_proj/bin/

04:20 <clusty> i updated some stuff

04:20 <mweltin> is this some dom stuff in java or....

04:20 <mweltin> python

04:20 <clusty> and now the start script chokes

04:20 <clusty> python

04:20 <clusty> ..which I suck at

04:20 <clusty> some package missing?

04:21 <mweltin> I dont think so, what is the error you get?

04:22 <mweltin> expat is some xml parser thing that is for sure.

04:22 <mweltin> when did you do the update?

04:23 <clusty> a while ago

04:23 <clusty> but never did stop boinc in 2 weeks

04:23 <clusty> :D

04:23 <clusty> now i cant restart it

04:23 <mweltin> where are you running it from?

04:23 <clusty> nvm

04:24 <clusty> from boinc_proj

04:24 <clusty> i type bin/start

04:24 <desti>

04:24 <Romulus> Title: Google Lunar X PRIZE (at

04:24 <mweltin> ok

04:24 <clusty> nvm

04:24 <mweltin> did you mess with the config.xml at all

04:24 <clusty> i will fix it

04:24 <clusty> thought it would be obvious

04:25 <clusty> ...but then again you are just a dud

04:25 <clusty> :D

04:25 <clusty> you aint that special :D

04:25 <mweltin> well ever notice how an xml tag and its data are on three lines and not one.

04:25 <clusty> nope. did not touch config.xml in ages

04:25 <mweltin> ok

04:26 <mweltin> I got some strange errors once when I put all the xml on one line.

04:26 <mweltin> <tag> data </tag>

04:27 <mweltin> strange I just tried it now and it worked fine.

04:27 <clusty> i can't even read whats wrong. is it my code

04:27 <clusty> or the lib that chokes?

04:28 <mweltin> at this point I'd think it was the python scirpt, but I'm not sure, could you that error message

04:29 *** Tidus has quit IRC

04:31 <mweltin> I have a local copy I'm going to try to upgrade and see if I get the same error.

04:31 <KathrynM> bbiab...  dinner

04:31 <mweltin> whats for dinner.

04:31 <mweltin> no produce on the island today.

04:32 <mweltin> I have to live vicariously (sp?)

04:33 <clusty>

04:33 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at

04:33 <clusty> is the error

04:36 <mweltin> I'm still waiting for my boinc source to download

04:37 <clusty> mweltin, definitely some stuff was replaced

04:37 <clusty> Unpacking python-libxml2 (from .../python-libxml2_2.6.30.dfsg-2ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb) ...

04:38 <mweltin> did you update python's libxml2 package

04:38 <mweltin> I'm not sure what you were telling me just now.

04:38 <clusty> yes

04:38 <clusty> found in log files that it got updated

04:39 <mweltin> ahhh

04:39 <clusty> ghhh

04:39 <mweltin> so wait do you have a boinc package?

04:39 <clusty> nope

04:39 <clusty> i compiled from source

04:39 <mweltin> good

04:39 <clusty> and did a make_project

04:39 <mweltin> excelent

04:39 <clusty> can I just do another proj

04:39 <mweltin> sure

04:39 <clusty> and copy the config_xml?

04:40 <mweltin> it will make a new one for you, but you can copy the config.xml over yes.

04:40 <mweltin> did you run the upgrade script ?

04:40 <clusty> so all my settings will be there?

04:40 <clusty> nope

04:40 <clusty> never knew there was one

04:40 <clusty> :D

04:41 <mweltin> ok, so one thing I was told was that....

04:41 <mweltin> when there is a server fix, or upgrade you go to the boinc source dir

04:41 <mweltin> svn update

04:41 <mweltin> then in the $BONC_SRC/tools dir

04:41 <mweltin> is a script upgrade

04:42 <clusty> rite

04:42 <clusty> lemme check

04:42 <mweltin> I think the syntax is upgrade path to project ro something

04:43 <clusty> Usage: upgrade [options] project_name

04:43 <clusty> Options:

04:43 <clusty>   --project_root    default: HOME/projects/

04:43 <clusty> will give it a shot now

04:43 <clusty> do I have to recompile new sources?

04:43 <clusty> or the upgrade takes care fo that?

04:43 <mweltin> shouldn't no

04:44 <mweltin> sometimes there are database udpates too but that is a different procedure.

04:45 <clusty> funny :D

04:45 <clusty> cant upgrade

04:45 <clusty> script chokes

04:45 <clusty> :D

04:45 <mweltin> what do you get for an error there?

04:46 <clusty>

04:46 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at

04:46 <clusty> basically cant stop proj

04:46 <mweltin> why you run svn update if there are changes to the you have to run _autosetup again.

04:47 <mweltin> did you stop the project first?

04:47 <clusty> it is stopped

04:47 <mweltin> oh wait its stopped alraedy

04:47 <clusty> but no start/stop/status can be run

04:47 <mweltin> thats the whole problem

04:47 <clusty> :D

04:49 <mweltin> so we obviously have the right version of python because it used to work.

04:50 <mweltin> I can send you my file if you want to do a diff on it.

04:50 <clusty> i suspect its a python problem

04:50 <mweltin> if they are the same we know its a python problem.

04:51 <clusty> send away then

04:52 <clusty> email it pls

04:52 <clusty>

04:52 <mweltin> ok

04:52 <clusty> and thanks for the help

04:55 <mweltin> apparently it's part of the python standard library.

04:55 <mweltin> the expat module taht is.

04:55 <clusty> though so

04:57 <mweltin> my old box has python 2.4.3

04:57 <mweltin> and let me check my new box.

04:58 <mweltin> 2.5.1

04:58 <mweltin> on the new box.

04:59 *** TheGasGiant has joined #boinc

04:59 <KathrynM> back

04:59 <TheGasGiant> wb

04:59 <KathrynM> thx

04:59 <mweltin> KathrynM,  is a python guru she can help fiugre this out.

05:00 <clusty> goody

05:00 <KathrynM> hahahahahaha

05:00 <mweltin> sorry clusty I was only kidding

05:00 <clusty> i know

05:00 <clusty> :D

05:00 <KathrynM> I'm a lowly English teacher

05:00 <mweltin> that was more for her benifit thank yous

05:00 <mweltin> lowly?

05:01 <TheGasGiant> who obvously knows python :)

05:01 <mweltin> the gas giant ?

05:01 <mweltin> perhaps?

05:01 <clusty> well i picture she's quite resourcefull

05:01 <KathrynM> The only python I know is the snake.  And I'll stay far away from those, thaniks.

05:01 <clusty> not many english teachers can handle linux

05:01 <clusty> :D

05:01 <KathrynM> WEll, it took quite a bit of hand holding ;)

05:02 <clusty> i am sure the process was pleasant in itself :D

05:02 <mweltin> no joke, once i asked my english teacher how long my paper should be.

05:03 <mweltin> he said...."Markus a good paper is like a womans skirt, long enough to cover the subject and short enough to keep your interest"

05:03 <clusty> dirty....

05:03 <clusty> hope that was not highschool

05:03 <KathrynM> lol

05:04 <mweltin> and it was, and it was in the middle of class and right when the PC movement was going strong.

05:05 <mweltin> I don't think I took an english class after highschool.

05:05 <mweltin> does it show?

05:06 <clusty> sure aint showin'

05:06 <mweltin> can't spell my way out of a paper bag, and I never which to or too I should use.

05:06 <mweltin> number two is the only know I can remember.

05:06 <KathrynM> and dont forget two too

05:06 <KathrynM> :)

05:07 <mweltin> the real nail in the coffin for me and english was Mrs. Kish.  She made us read every John Steinbeck novel written.

05:08 <mweltin> after the red pony I wanted to kill her.

05:08 <clusty> steinbeck is the "of mice and men" guy?

05:08 <mweltin> I brought the satanic bible to school just to freak her out.

05:08 <mweltin> yes among other tragicly long and boring books.

05:09 <KathrynM> never read steinbeck

05:09 <clusty> well I almost failed one year since I did not put any accents or dots on i's

05:09 <mweltin> now she tells me

05:09 <clusty> idiotic

05:09 <mweltin> where were you 20 years agao.

05:09 <KathrynM> lol

05:09 <KathrynM> in elementary school

05:10 <clusty> well in romanian we have like 4 letters with funny squiggly things

05:10 <KathrynM> or maybe middle school.

05:10 <clusty> no one uses them

05:10 <clusty> can bet from context

05:10 <mweltin> clusty its totally python

05:10 <clusty> get*

05:10 <clusty> python lib?

05:10 <clusty> i mean python itself not boinc

05:10 <mweltin> yeah I just ran the upgrade script and it wroked fine.

05:11 <clusty> which version of python do you have?

05:11 <mweltin> 2.4.3

05:11 *** flight16 has quit IRC

05:11 <clusty> lemme see if i can downgrade

05:12 <mweltin> I'd try my live server with python 2.5 but I dont' want to f it up.

05:12 <mweltin> done

05:12 <mweltin> dont*

05:12 <mweltin> python is like Norton antivirus on windows.

05:12 <clusty> i have 2.5.1

05:12 <mweltin> its in everything and everywhere

05:12 <mweltin> if you mess up python on your box it sucks.

05:12 <mweltin> 2.5 is great

05:13 <mweltin> what distro?

05:13 <mweltin> of linux that is?

05:13 <clusty> wholly macaro

05:13 <clusty> i cant kill python

05:13 <clusty> its ubuntu server

05:13 <clusty> :D

05:13 <clusty> debian is a bit old

05:13 <mweltin> ok, so it has some package managmentthing right?

05:13 <clusty> yeap

05:13 <clusty> will install 2.4

05:14 <mweltin> is it debian based?

05:14 <mweltin> no

05:14 <mweltin> no

05:14 <mweltin> no

05:14 <clusty> yes

05:14 <mweltin> dont install 2.4

05:14 <clusty> 99% debian compliant :D

05:14 <mweltin> lets first try to just deal with the package

05:14 <mweltin> sorry

05:14 <mweltin> modlue

05:14 <clusty> huh?

05:14 <clusty> do what?

05:14 <mweltin> expat module

05:14 <clusty> ok

05:15 <mweltin> I think we should try to reinstall the expat python module.

05:15 <clusty>

05:15 <clusty> is what i have

05:15 <clusty> libxml-paser-oerl

05:15 *** TheGasGiant has quit IRC

05:16 *** TheGasGiant has joined #boinc

05:16 <mweltin> is expat installed on your box?

05:16 <clusty> yes

05:16 <clusty> 1.95.8

05:17 <clusty> libexpat1

05:17 <mweltin> because based on my 3 min of research, pyhon expat module is just a wrapper

05:17 <clusty> yeap

05:18 <mweltin> ok so how do python modules work?  do they load a shared lib or something when they are impored into a script?

05:19 <clusty> no bloody idea

05:19 <clusty> know of thing called twig or whatever

05:20 <mweltin> no worries

05:20 <clusty> that makes it easy for python to play nice with other langs

05:20 <mweltin> I'll just make something up and we can test it.

05:20 <clusty> so why not downgrade python?

05:20 <mweltin> that could mess up your system a lot

05:21 <mweltin> not worht the risk at this point

05:21 <clusty> indeed

05:21 <mweltin> but go ahead if you want.

05:21 <clusty> no thanks

05:21 <clusty> 20 people will yell at me

05:21 <clusty> :D

05:21 <clusty> all sorts of services are running there for company

05:21 <mweltin> what do you care what other people say

05:21 <mweltin> ok you are a command line?

05:21 <clusty> well I have to fix it afterwards

05:22 <mweltin> haha

05:22 <clusty> i am the admin

05:22 <clusty> :D

05:22 <clusty> would rather move the server on my machine

05:22 <clusty> than f** up the server

05:22 <mweltin> you are the admin, adn all this teim I thought you were just some guy.

05:22 <clusty> :D

05:22 <mweltin> fire up a terminal and start python

05:23 <clusty> done chief

05:23 <clusty> what now?

05:23 <mweltin> import sys

05:23 <mweltin> import xml.dom.minidom

05:23 <mweltin> tell me if you get any errors

05:23 <clusty> done

05:23 <mweltin> any errors?

05:24 <clusty> nope

05:24 <clusty> all honky dorry :D

05:24 <mweltin> cool

05:25 <mweltin> so the is just a lib of python classes

05:25 <clusty> yeah

05:25 <mweltin> and those are the only two modules it imports.

05:25 <clusty> maybe some prototype has changed meanwhile

05:25 <clusty> inside the python-xml thing

05:25 <clusty> #args/types

05:25 <clusty> whatever

05:26 <mweltin> then it was a crappy wrapper

05:26 <clusty> will prolly be best if I wrote to the mailing list

05:26 <clusty> there must be python-boinc experts there

05:26 <mweltin> can't hurt

05:26 <mweltin> try #python here in irc

05:27 <clusty> they'll tell me: go learn python

05:27 <clusty> and dont bug us with your dumb questions :LD

05:27 <mweltin> true

05:28 <mweltin> but every once in a while you get a nice guy

05:28 <clusty> lets see :D

05:30 <mweltin> is there a file called run_state_$HOST.xml in your project dir?

05:30 <mweltin> where $HOST is your box's hostname

05:31 <clusty> yes

05:31 <clusty> empty

05:31 <clusty> should i remove?

05:31 <clusty> worked

05:31 <mweltin> empty empty like nothing?

05:31 <clusty> fokin ay

05:31 <clusty> grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

05:31 <clusty> fokin ey

05:31 <mweltin> what

05:32 <clusty> now it works

05:32 <clusty> i closed the boinc by killing

05:32 <clusty> cause FS was full

05:32 <mweltin> ouch

05:32 <clusty> and could not close any other way

05:32 <clusty> did a killall

05:32 <clusty> i feel like I could kiss you

05:32 <clusty> ...but that would be just too gay

05:32 <clusty> :D

05:33 <mweltin> I get that a lot

05:33 <mweltin> its ok

05:33 <clusty> thanks a bunch dud

05:33 <mweltin> np

05:33 <clusty> you are afterall DA MAN

05:33 <clusty> :D

05:33 <mweltin> I'm just some guy you know

05:33 <clusty> how on earth could I have figured that one out

05:34 <mweltin> well I started to look at the files themselves.

05:34 <clusty> should I bother upgrading?

05:34 <clusty> now that it works?

05:34 <mweltin> bin/start and

05:34 <clusty> or don't touch it :D

05:34 <mweltin> they are well documented.

05:34 <mweltin> sure what is the worst that can happen

05:35 <clusty> just trash it :D

05:35 <mweltin> you are just running uppecase right?

05:35 <clusty> which is no disaster

05:35 <clusty> wrapper

05:35 <clusty> :D

05:35 <mweltin> the only things that screw up are php things on the website.

05:35 <mweltin> well let me rephrase that

05:36 <mweltin> when i have run an upgrade, I have never noticed anything other than some php pages break.

05:36 <mweltin> WU and results seem to come and go without issue.

05:36 <mweltin> but there is a first time for everything.

05:37 <clusty> scripts worked just fine

05:38 <clusty> to run php form command line I need CGI php?

05:39 <mweltin> no

05:39 <mweltin> php script_name

05:39 <mweltin> should work

05:39 <mweltin> errrr

05:39 <clusty> i mean php is for now just an apache module

05:39 <mweltin> yeah

05:39 <clusty> no php exec

05:39 <clusty> usually that came with CGI version of php

05:40 <clusty> is there a smarter way of doing that?

05:40 <mweltin> no you can use php as an almost shell if youwant

05:40 <mweltin> no still an apache mod.

05:40 <mweltin> as far as I know

05:40 <clusty> think its php-cli

05:41 <mweltin> I remember raeding about some gtk and php deal where you could make desktop apps with them.

05:41 <mweltin> no apache nothing.

05:41 <clusty> yeap

05:41 <clusty> that was it

05:42 <clusty> i remember reading of boinc forums

05:42 <clusty> to do cron jobs on them you needed the funny command line php

05:42 <mweltin> you can use php as a shell

05:42 <mweltin> af\aljflaskdjf

05:42 <mweltin> sorry

05:42 <mweltin> you can use php as a scripting language, like bash if you want

05:42 <clusty> yeah

05:43 <clusty> but the interpreter does not come by defualt

05:43 <clusty> cause most ppl do just webv pages

05:43 <clusty> and they need just apache to see them

05:43 <clusty> anyways

05:43 <clusty> seemed to have worked

05:46 <mweltin> cool beans

05:46 <mweltin> I'm going to bed then.

05:46 <mweltin> you all take care.

05:46 <KathrynM> night mweltin

05:47 <mweltin> ngiht KathrynM, take care, and don't make the kids read steinbeck, in the end they will hate you for it.

05:47 <clusty> gnite, thanks mr man

05:47 <clusty> :D

05:47 <KathrynM> Ive got kids who are lucky to say their abc's

05:47 <KathrynM> They won't be reading steinbeck any time soon.

05:48 <mweltin> for all I know Mrs. Kish is a nice person with only a character flaw, but I'll never know.

05:48 <KathrynM> lol

05:48 <mweltin> oh so it's hemmingway for them

05:48 <clusty> any of you read a book called "foam of daze" or "froth of days"?

05:48 <clusty> by some french dud called boris vian?

05:48 <KathrynM> nope

05:48 <clusty> damn

05:48 <mweltin> no

05:49 <clusty> can't share my love for this book with you

05:49 <clusty> :D

05:49 <mweltin> I did read green eggs and ham

05:49 <KathrynM> one of my favorites markus

05:49 <KathrynM> It was the first book I learned to read.

05:49 <clusty> lemme wiki for it

05:49 <mweltin> I don't read much.

05:49 <xcamel> boo

05:49 <mweltin> after green eggs everything else is a let down.

05:49 <clusty> balah

05:50 <clusty> blah

05:50 <KathrynM> lol

05:50 <mweltin> xcamel I am.

07:20 <clusty> all haxorz get a nice automatic firewall ban

07:23 <desti> change the ssh port

07:23 <desti> and 99,9999% of all ssh bots are out of bussiness

07:24 <clusty> i put some ridiculous high port

07:24 <clusty> over 10k

07:24 <clusty> most port scanners stop there

07:24 <clusty> and anyways you can catch them with snort if they scan you

07:36 <clusty> :D

07:36 <clusty> teaching them to crack codes from early ages

07:36 <KathrynM> nah

07:36 <KathrynM> That's all my stuff

07:37 <clusty> your brain is an example of:

07:37 <clusty> protoplasm

07:37 <clusty> :D

07:37 <KathrynM> I just needed to make sure it was as easy as clicking a link for the less technically inclined coworkers

07:37 <clusty> well i am quite techie :D

07:38 <KathrynM> If you said well, I had to open port 49 on my router and then change my IP tables blah blah blah, I would have known that this ain't gonna work.

07:38 <KathrynM> But if all you did was click, well...

07:39 <KathrynM> :D

07:39 <clusty> damn, i was lucky to have stumbled across the big daddy master chief, markus

07:39 <KathrynM> :)

07:39 <clusty> would have cried for a long time otherwise

07:40 <KathrynM> Well...  I could have told you what your problem was.  But I thought I'd let Markus feel important :p

07:40 <clusty> sure you did

07:40 <clusty> dunno

07:40 <KathrynM> lol

07:40 <clusty> i love more and more my job

07:40 <clusty> i am payed to chat on IRC

07:51 <KathrynM> great.  "A Healthy Body"

07:51 <clusty> velcome

07:51 <clusty> :D

07:52 <clusty> science for kiddos?

07:52 <KathrynM> So I'll get to hear how the picture of the boy has a winky.

07:52 <KathrynM> Just what I want to hear for the next two weeks.

07:52 <KathrynM> Yeah, 2nd and 3rd graders.

07:52 <clusty> telling them about bees and birds?

07:52 <KathrynM> thankfully no

07:52 <clusty> i imagine that must be brutal

07:52 <KathrynM> But a coworker gets to do that with some 5th and 6th graders

07:52 <clusty> that late?

07:53 <clusty> my momma told me about that sort of stuff

07:53 <KathrynM> well, how many English language schools do you know that teach sex ed

07:53 <clusty> i know i have felt deeply ashamed

07:53 <KathrynM> I think it was 5th grade for me (in school - mom didn't tell me a freaking thing)

07:53 <clusty> as long as bushie does not pay for them, a lot

07:53 <clusty> :D

07:53 <clusty> mom tried being as dimplomatic about ti

07:54 <clusty> but i was asking for it :D

07:54 <clusty> was a curios kid

07:54 <KathrynM> Helen wants to kill me because I picked the science book she's using.

07:54 <KathrynM> heh... why am I not surprised about your curiosity.

07:54 <clusty> well I was curious about stuff which should not have :D

07:54 <clusty> like:

07:55 <clusty> what happens when the momma and poppa don't want the kid

07:55 <clusty> :D

07:55 <clusty> in full commie era

07:55 <clusty> :D

07:55 <KathrynM> I just read the books my mum's doc gave her when she was expecting my youngest brother.  I was 9

07:56 <clusty> :D

07:56 <clusty> so you got the full gory medical perspective

07:56 <KathrynM> pretty much

07:56 <KathrynM> I was a well educated 9 year old.

07:56 <KathrynM> On the way to the hospital when she was in labor with Chris, I asked how many cm she was dialated :D

07:57 <clusty> i remember charming girls in second grade about lasers

07:57 <clusty> transistors

07:57 <clusty> and force of gravity

07:57 <clusty> :D

07:57 <KathrynM> lol

07:57 <clusty> those were my bedtime stories of my paps

07:57 <clusty> :D

07:57 <KathrynM> I was not your typical child.

07:57 <KathrynM> that's awesome

07:57 <clusty> i am laughing my ass off when i hear myself

07:57 <clusty> my dad taped me asking all those dumb questions

07:59 <KathrynM> nothing, trying something Eric recommended I look at

07:59 <KathrynM> But grup won't do anything :)

08:00 <clusty> who's eric?

08:00 <clusty> :D

08:00 <KathrynM> Eric Myers (from Pirates)

08:00 <clusty> rite

08:00 <KathrynM> :)

08:00 <clusty> he is not hanging around here?

08:01 <KathrynM> nah.  I've never seen him in #boinc.

08:03 <KathrynM> hahahahahaha!!!!

08:03 <KathrynM> "Then there are makefiles, which you may be ready for now."

08:03 <clusty> whats the reason of joy?

08:04 <KathrynM> not necessarily joy, but definitely amusement

08:06 <clusty> wow. did not expect this much dedication from testers

08:06 <clusty> :D

08:06 <KathrynM> your project?

08:06 <clusty> no

08:06 <clusty> you and your projects

08:06 <clusty> :D

08:06 <KathrynM> what do you mean?

08:07 <clusty> you seem to be helping out quite a bit to weed out bugs

08:07 <clusty> with pirates

08:07 <clusty> and stuff

08:07 <KathrynM> some.

08:07 <KathrynM> I can report what I see.

08:07 <clusty> running alpha client if i am not mistaking also

08:07 <KathrynM> On Windows yeah.

08:07 <KathrynM> I was helping alpha test Eric's rpm too.

08:07 <KathrynM> But it was using a stable build of BOINC.

08:08 <KathrynM> I suppose I should download and give 5.10.42 a whirl and see how that works.

08:08 <clusty> i was considering to get involved into building deb packages of the server

08:08 <KathrynM> I compiled the client, but not the manager last week (or maybe the week before that)

08:08 <clusty> wanna try the manager?

08:09 <clusty> its quite easy

08:09 <KathrynM> I don't have wxWidgets and stuff yet.

08:09 <clusty> thats the sercret

08:09 <KathrynM> And it's getting late here.

08:09 <clusty> under windows you just compile WX

08:09 <clusty> set an env var

08:09 <clusty> and alakazam

08:09 <KathrynM> oh god..........

08:09 <clusty> :D

08:09 <KathrynM> hell no

08:09 <KathrynM> I tried and tried and tried

08:09 <clusty> same for linux

08:09 <KathrynM> No luck

08:09 <clusty> took me a week to figure it out

08:10 <KathrynM> Talk about banging my head into a brick wall.

08:10 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC

08:10 <clusty> ..and with the help of the friendly boinc crew got it compiling

08:10 <KathrynM> If I'm ever super super bored and can't find anything interesting to do on Linux, then I'll redownload VS and try it again.

08:10 <clusty> ummm

08:10 <KathrynM> The chances of that happening are slim to none.

08:10 <clusty> you better have the full VS

08:11 <clusty> and not VSexpress

08:11 <KathrynM> Jord built it with VS express.

08:11 <clusty> cause the later one needs tons of extra libs

08:11 <KathrynM> We were trying to build it at the same time.

08:11 <KathrynM> Him on 2K me on Vista

08:11 <clusty> if you get a torrent of the full one its peanuts

08:11 <clusty> i feel no remorse stealing form billy

08:11 <clusty> :D

08:11 <KathrynM> About the only thing that did build without issue was WxWidgets

08:12 <KathrynM> Heh, I can always get it from my brother.  He has the volume license key from his uni.

08:12 <KathrynM> How do you think I got XP Pro on the new computer (and my old P4 for that matter)

08:12 <clusty> faster to just download

08:13 <KathrynM> true.  It'd take 10 days for it to come in the mail (plus however long it would take him to remember to send it)

08:13 <clusty> if you want a german vista extreme....

08:13 <clusty> :D

08:13 <KathrynM> Hell no.  Vista is annoying enough in my native language.

08:14 <clusty> vista is good for your health

08:15 <clusty> keeps you active

08:15 <clusty> :D

08:15 <KathrynM> Linux is better for my sanity (I think).

08:15 <clusty> best weight loss pill

08:15 <KathrynM> lol

08:16 <clusty> :D

08:16 <clusty> if its too comfy you grow fat

08:16 <clusty> :D

08:32 <KathrynM> DIdn't matter how many times I said, "Tina, don't do that"  "Tina, you need to go eat your lunch"  "Tina, Jeannie Teacher is calling you"

08:32 <KathrynM> She stood there and poked me in the arm.

19:41 <Tank_Master> Mr n00b MTughan didnt turn in an assignemnt

19:41 <zombie67> ouch!

19:41 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

19:41 <zombie67> yeah, it worked great!

19:41 <MTughan> One assignment! And my mark goes down to 33%!

19:41 <Tank_Master> lol

19:41 <Tank_Master> shoulda dont it, man

19:42 <zombie67> however, 4 projects would not give up 32 bit apps:  TANPAKU, SZTAKI, RCN, and ..i forgot the 4th

19:43 <MTughan> They have x86_64 apps?

19:43 <zombie67> no

19:43 <PovAddict> no, they don't

19:43 <Tank_Master> Ralph

19:43 <PovAddict> and they have old server code that doesn't understand alt_platform

19:43 <zombie67> I am saying they did not give me 32 bit work

19:43 <Tank_Master> and Einstine?

19:43 <MTughan> Oh...

19:43 <zombie67> yeah!  RALPH!

19:43 <zombie67> einstein worked

19:43 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

19:43 <Tank_Master> ahh, ok

19:44 <Tank_Master> wasnt sure it it did or not

19:44 <zombie67> TM, this is OSX 64 bit client

19:44 <Tank_Master> they are talking about sending CPU spicific apps to everyone

19:44 <zombie67> I saw that

19:44 <Tank_Master> (einstine)

19:44 <Tank_Master> great effert on their part of they do

19:49 <efc> If they'd just write it all in Java, it would be so easy

19:49 <Tank_Master> java?

19:50 <Tank_Master> your insane?

19:50 <efc> JAVA

19:50 <Tank_Master> java is crap

19:50 <PovAddict> efc: the apps?

19:50 <Tank_Master> worse POSoftware made

19:50 * efc tosses the incendiary bomb in and walks away

19:50 <efc> Yes

19:50 <PovAddict> PrimeGrid admin told me some random guy emailed him about using *Flash*

19:50 <Tank_Master> y?

19:51 <MTughan> O_O

19:51 <efc> Brilliant!

19:51 <PovAddict> idea being that the user just visits a website and he's crunching

19:51 <Tank_Master> ahh, again, y?

19:51 <PovAddict> I dunno

19:51 <Tank_Master> lol

19:51 <PovAddict> he compared ActionScript performance to Java

19:51 <PovAddict> but I say neither would be as fast as PrimeGrid apps, optimized with assembly code

19:51 <MTughan> No.

19:52 <Tank_Master> what if someone cant install falsh for some reason?

19:52 <efc> It is a shame you can't describe a scientific task abstractly enough to be portably compilable, with good performance

19:52 <efc> Tank_Master: Javascript or VBScript

19:52 <PovAddict> I wrote an md5 cracker in JS

19:52 <PovAddict> you won't believe how slow it is

19:52 <PovAddict> 4 seconds to do 26 hashes

19:53 <Tank_Master> slower than molassus diped in LN2?

19:53 <PovAddict>

19:53 <Romulus> Title: Surprise (at

19:54 <efc> We need an XLM-To-Roman-Numerals converter for the Intercal version

19:54 <efc> err XML

19:54 <efc> endian issue

19:55 <MTughan> XML to Roman numerals? WTF?

19:55 <PovAddict> MTughan: Intercal...

19:55 <MTughan> I obviously don't know what Intercal is...

19:55 <PovAddict> you're better off not knowing

19:56 <PovAddict> an example: you know how 'goto' is bad practice?

19:56 <Tank_Master> goto is awsome

19:56 <Tank_Master> easy to use

19:56 <PovAddict> intercal solved that by replacing 'go to' with 'come from'

19:56 <Tank_Master> lol

19:56 <MTughan> Uh... Nice.

19:56 <Tank_Master> "come from" your mom
