00:45 <Wabbit67> wb

00:45 <Wabbit67> I have survived in college because of loopholes

00:47 <zombie67> heh

00:47 <zombie67> i bailed after 3 semisters

00:47 <Wabbit67> they say only in good standing at the college you are attending

00:47 <Wabbit67> not if you have been kicked out of any others

00:48 <Wabbit67> Cambridge was to expensive for the summer

00:49 <zombie67> my cousin did a summer thing there.  He was learing about teaching at the time

00:50 <zombie67> I happened to be on a business trip near there at the time, and we met up for  dinner (indian).

00:50 <Wabbit67> how was it

00:50 <Wabbit67> ?

00:50 <Wabbit67> stupid weak dollar

00:50 <zombie67> dinner?  fine

00:50 <Wabbit67> or else I would go to England and study for the summer

00:50 <zombie67> lots of good indian food in england

00:51 <Wabbit67> now I am stuck at an Ivy league school for the summer studying

00:51 <zombie67> which one?

00:51 <zombie67> wow.  gerasim updated their home page

00:51 <Wabbit67> Brown

00:51 <Wabbit67> how long has it been for gerasim?

00:51 <Wabbit67> it feels like forever

00:51 <zombie67> how long?

00:51 <Romulus> hmm... how long is that, zombie67

00:52 <Wabbit67> for an update on the front page of gerasim?

00:52 <zombie67> ah, since the beginning

00:53 <zombie67> they are porting the whole boinc server enviro to win.  awful lot of work for no reason

00:53 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

00:58 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

00:58 *** nickuwo has joined #BOINC

00:59 <Wabbit67> its nickuwo

01:05 <nickuwo> hey

01:06 <KathrynM> hiya nickuwo

01:06 <KathrynM> how's the project coming?

01:06 <nickuwo> hello

01:06 <nickuwo> umm

01:06 <nickuwo> pretty good

01:06 <nickuwo> :)

01:06 <Romulus> otherwise, you can also use this ->

01:06 <KathrynM> thanks for the tip rommie

01:06 <nickuwo> hehe

01:11 <Wabbit67> rommie is full of good tips

01:12 <KathrynM> rommie is full of sh** too

01:13 <Wabbit67> he is just a poor defenseless bot

01:15 <efc> Good, then he won't shoot back

01:15 <KathrynM> lol

01:16 <nickuwo> i'm sure I understand the point of rommie repeating random lines from the logs of this channel...

01:16 <nickuwo> not sure

01:16 <efc> "You just shot an unarmed man!" "Well, he should have armed himself.. if he's gonna go decorating his saloon with my friend"

01:17 <KathrynM> just for fun?

01:17 <KathrynM> dunno

01:17 <efc> Perhaps a BOINC project can compute these long term capital gains for me

01:17 <Soul_keeper> you got no capital gains

01:17 <Wabbit67> or calculate the new tax rates under the democrats

01:17 <efc> they're for dad

01:18 <efc> re-running for him since he's paying major $$$

01:18 <Soul_keeper> obama is gonna gouge you

01:18 <efc> UrSoHosed@Home

01:19 <efc> They can cut out all that baby-making tax credit crap

01:19 <Soul_keeper> nah they're too busy "stimulating" the chinese economy

01:19 <efc> I need some babies.. you got any I can borrow?

01:20 <efc> I wanted to make my own but I kept getting maced

01:20 *** freelarry has joined #Boinc

01:20 <freelarry> evening all

01:20 <efc> moo FL

01:21 <Wabbit67> hehehe

01:21 <freelarry> anyone know how to check what is using network connections on windows? just restarted and the thing has been going hard for over 2 minutes

01:21 <Wabbit67> efc it is hard to attract a mate

01:22 <freelarry> nevermind it stoppd

01:22 <efc> I gave up on that. Now I just want the write-off.

01:22 <efc> freelarry: netstat is one way

01:23 *** FreeLarry58 has quit IRC

01:24 <efc> Can Mirc show what winamp is playing?

01:24 <Soul_keeper> freelarry, it's the spyware/adware and internet MS daemons that stay in constant communication with MS HQ

01:25 <efc> There are some of those demons I can't shut up.. they fire up very infrequently and for a short time. Can't catch em in the act.

01:25 <Soul_keeper> they keep tabs on your daily usage habits and sell that data to companies

01:26 <efc> Its like those "Privacy Policies" the credit cards and banks send out

01:26 <efc> at the end they basically say: "and btw, you have no privacy at all"

01:26 <Soul_keeper> efc,  yeah MS don't want you to know they exist, and they are probably so well integrated that the system will crash if you did managed to disable/delete them

01:27 <efc> I've got them locked out of this system, its 2k with a software firewall, but the xp machine i can't get under control

01:28 <Soul_keeper> yeah i only used xp for a few months when it first came out, before switching permanently to linux,  havn't looked back since

01:29 <efc> well, at least they don't have a 93% tax bracket anymore

01:30 <Soul_keeper> don't worry they'll find a way to tax you

01:30 <efc> i find some of those historical tax rates amazing

01:30 <Soul_keeper> specially once you are required to foot the bill for mandatory healthcare

01:30 <efc> 73% in 1921

01:31 <Soul_keeper> i got it figured if i make 80 bucks on the stock market i only get to keep 43% of it

01:32 <Soul_keeper> 12% payroll taxes, 20% capital gains taxes, and 25% commissions

01:32 <Wabbit67> efc they could never have a 73% bracket anymore

01:33 <Soul_keeper> people want too many things from the government, it should be nothing more than a midget with a big gun

01:34 <efc> on stock stuff you aren't supposed to have payroll taxes? Unless maybe thats your main source of income

01:34 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

01:34 <Soul_keeper> well you are taxed before you even have the money to invest

01:34 <Wabbit67> the govt. should provide free dates to the dateless

01:34 <efc> i'm trying to figure out why dad got AMTd

01:35 <Soul_keeper> ask him maybe

01:35 <efc> I really can't figure out what they are trying to reward or punish, so I can do or not do it

01:36 <efc> He doesn't know, its just a bunch of numbers

01:36 <Soul_keeper> &dict AMTd

01:36 <Romulus> Soul_keeper: No definition for "AMTd" could be found.

01:36 <Wabbit67> alternative minimum taxed

01:37 <efc> its IRSese for "0wned"

01:37 <Romulus> also, they can't drive...

01:38 <Soul_keeper>

01:38 <Romulus> <> (at

01:38 <Soul_keeper> the new irs pencil sharpener :)

01:39 <efc> Excellent

01:40 *** freelarry has quit IRC

01:41 <Soul_keeper> welp  good night

01:43 <efc> Night SK

02:13 <MTughan> I think I need to watch less TV...

02:13 <Wabbit67> why?

04:25 <Antkin> Hello

04:26 <KathrynM> Hi

04:27 <Antkin> KathrynM Hi, do you know how to get Antkin on nickserv?

04:27 <KathrynM> nope

04:28 <KathrynM> sorry

04:28 <Antkin> Ok have to do without it for the time being

04:30 <Antkin> KathrynM This is only my second day on IRC

04:30 <KathrynM> I haven't been on but a few weeks.

04:31 *** siof is now known as siofwolves

04:32 <Antkin> KathrynM No problem with that, can I learn from you?

04:33 <KathrynM> I'll share what little I know.  What questions do you have?

04:34 <Antkin> KathrynM Thanks for that. Which country are you in?

04:34 <KathrynM> right now, South Korea

04:35 <Antkin> KathrynM I am in United Kingdom, do you use BOINC Manager?

04:35 <KathrynM> Yup.

04:36 <KathrynM> Ahh.  You're new to BOINC.  I'm not.  But I'm new to IRC.

04:37 <Antkin> KathrynM I've been using BOINC for over a year

04:37 <KathrynM> I see.

04:37 <KathrynM> OK.

04:37 <KathrynM> What's up with it?

04:39 <Antkin> KathrynM I've had a power cut and it does not open my browser anymore

04:40 <KathrynM> What OS?

04:40 <Romulus> hmm... What OS are you on, KathrynM

04:40 <KathrynM> quiet Rommie!

04:41 <Antkin> KathrynM  Dual boot Windows XP and Ubuntu

04:41 <KathrynM> Which one is giving you headaches?

04:41 <Antkin> KathrynM Ubuntu 7.10

04:42 <KathrynM> I use Fedora, not Ubuntu...  But how is BOINC installed?

04:43 <Antkin> KathrynM By adept manager

04:43 <KathrynM> What happens when you try to use a manager button to get to a website?

04:44 <Antkin> KathrynM It opens a terminal window insted ot the browser

04:45 <KathrynM> Can you open websites out of other apps (an IM client or your IRC client maybe?)

04:45 <Antkin> Yes Firefox works just fine

04:46 <KathrynM> The browser itself, yeah.  But if you have something like Thunderbird or Pidgin or xchat that you can click on a link, does it open?

04:46 <KathrynM> I'm trying to figure out if it's in the OS or in BOINC.

04:48 <Antkin> Yes I have Thunderbird and it opens Firefox if I click on a link

04:48 <KathrynM> ok.

04:48 <KathrynM> so something in BOINC is corrupted.

04:48 <KathrynM> Let me look at my install here on Fedora.

04:48 <Antkin> OK thanks

04:48 <KathrynM> What does it say in the shell after you click a link?

04:48 <KathrynM> use

04:49 <Antkin> Do you mean terminal window?

04:49 <KathrynM> yeah

04:49 <Antkin> I'll just do it

04:49 <KathrynM> ok

04:51 <Antkin> Can not cut and paste, it says World Community Grid

04:51 <KathrynM> you should be able to c/p...  highlight everything and then right click and see if you get a little popup menu.

04:54 <Antkin> Can not cut and paste,it will not highlight  it says World Community Grid log in

04:54 <KathrynM> strange.

04:54 <KathrynM> oh well.

04:55 <KathrynM> Can you search your system for a file called ".BOINC Manager"

04:55 <KathrynM> It's a hidden file.

04:56 *** Aruzo has joined #boinc

04:56 <Antkin> How?

04:56 <Romulus> Rumor has it How is breakfast, Antkin

04:56 <KathrynM> open a terminal

04:56 <KathrynM> type

04:56 <KathrynM> locate ".BOINC Manager"

04:56 <KathrynM> with the quotes, the dot and the space.

04:57 <KathrynM> Mine is in the boinc user's home directory.

04:57 <KathrynM> But I installed via a rpm package, not the package manager

04:57 <Romulus> That's about the scientific proj

04:59 <Antkin> antony@DELL4:~$ >locate ".BOINC Manager"

04:59 <Antkin> bash: .BOINC Manager: command not found

04:59 <Antkin> antony@DELL4:~$

04:59 <KathrynM> you might had to do it with sudo

04:59 <KathrynM> I've not used *buntu extensively.

05:01 <KathrynM> do

05:01 <KathrynM> ls -la

05:01 <KathrynM> and see if you see it.

05:02 <Antkin> -rw-r--r--  1 antony antony   1965 2008-03-02 00:47 .BOINC Manager

05:04 * CoderForLife opens one eye

05:04 <KathrynM> do

05:04 <KathrynM> rm ".BOINC Manager"

05:04 <KathrynM> then start the manager again, and that file will get recreated.

05:05 <KathrynM> mornin' CoderForLife

05:05 <CoderForLife> it seems I still have existence

05:05 <KathrynM> now that someone who knows what they're talking about is here, I'll go back and hide in my corner

05:05 <Antkin> Romuulus I have not had breakfast yet

05:05 * CoderForLife looks around the room

05:05 <KathrynM> heh. Rommie is our bot

05:05 <KathrynM> and general pain in the arse.

05:06 <CoderForLife> &eightball Is Rommie a pain in the arse?

05:06 <Romulus> CoderForLife: What are you asking me for?

05:06 <CoderForLife> see?

05:07 <KathrynM> Oh wait,

05:07 <KathrynM> nv

05:08 * KathrynM wishes she knew more about Debian

05:08 * CoderForLife avoids Debian

05:08 <KathrynM> I'm not a big fan of it.

05:08 <KathrynM> I'll stick to Fedora

05:08 <Antkin> antony@DELL4:~$ >rm ".BOINC Manager"

05:08 <Antkin> bash: .BOINC Manager: command not found

05:08 <KathrynM> I like yum better than apt-get anyway

05:09 <Antkin> antony@DELL4:~$ sudo rm ".BOINC Manager"

05:09 <CoderForLife> I come from the Red Hat/Mandrake/Fedora part of the Linux family

05:09 <KathrynM> I started with Ubuntu, but  changed over to Fedora a few months later.

05:10 <KathrynM> Ubuntu still hangs around on it's own partition tho

05:10 <CoderForLife> I find the ".BOINC Manager" syntax a bit curious

05:10 <Antkin> I left Fedora 4 because it could work with my printer, went to Mandriva for 3 years

05:10 <KathrynM> why CoderForLife?

05:10 <CoderForLife> what is the file name?

05:10 <KathrynM> .BOINC Manager

05:10 <CoderForLife> so it's a hidden file?

05:10 <KathrynM> -rw-r--r--  1 kathryn Kathryn     1236 2008-03-02 19:04 .BOINC Manager

05:10 <KathrynM> yeah

05:11 <CoderForLife> ah

05:11 <KathrynM> I was able to delete it with rm ".BOINC Manager"

05:11 <KathrynM> you need the quotes, right?  because of the space

05:11 <CoderForLife> my sleeping brain was thinking "./BOINC Manager"

05:11 <KathrynM> ahh

05:13 <CoderForLife> Ahh?  More like "Zzz"...  =)

05:13 <KathrynM> lol

05:14 <CoderForLife> Speedtest shows brosdband is running slower thsn before the upgrade yesterday

05:14 <Antkin> I left Mandriva becausetheir disk had the pinter drivers missing. Kubutu and Ubuntu work with my HP All in One

05:14 <Antkin>

05:14 <CoderForLife> broadband*

05:14 <KathrynM> :(

05:14 <CoderForLife> than#

05:14 <CoderForLife> can't type

05:14 <KathrynM> don't worry.  I speak typo fluently.

05:15 <CoderForLife> got to now issue a service request - they need to bring back my old cable modem that worked better than the new one

05:15 <KathrynM> what isp?

05:24 * CoderForLife pulls up the Customer Service contact page for Time Warner

05:24 <Antkin> When I press My Grid I still get a terminal window insted of Konqurer

05:25 <KathrynM> beats me then.

05:25 <KathrynM> sorry

05:25 <Antkin> Thanks for trying

05:26 <Antkin> What BOINC project have you done? Have you settled just for one?

05:27 <KathrynM> it's probably easier to ask what projects I've haven't done ;)

05:27 <KathrynM> right now my pet project is Einstein tho

05:27 <KathrynM>

05:27 <Romulus> <> (at

05:28 <Antkin> Einstein was my second project after SETI

05:28 <KathrynM> I started with Seti classic and lost interest quite quickly

05:28 <KathrynM> I start BOINC almsot 2.5 years ago

05:28 <CoderForLife> so many projects, so little time

05:29 <KathrynM> oh yes

05:29 <Antkin> Did six weeks 24/7 for Einstein gained over 29,000 credits

05:56 <Antkin> How do I get a list of questions to ask Romulus?

06:02 <Antkin> KathrynM Thank you for your help today, I have not used Konsule very much it has been an education, this is a great improvement on yesterdays waste one hour on IRC.

06:03 <KathrynM> I'm happy to help.  I've been lucky enough to have one of the project admins mentoring me.  I'm a realtive new comer to the world of Linux.

06:06 <Antkin> I first used Mandrake in 1999 played with distros untill I settled with Mandriva for 3 years, it is still my backup Linux, Quad booted for a month with Windows XP, Kubuntu, Ubunt and Mandriva

06:06 <Antkin>

06:08 <Antkin> I find the feedback on Linux forums better than Windows forums more help for the newbie, getting started etc

06:10 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc

06:48 <KathrynM> yes Antkin

06:48 <Rabbitbunny> I'd rather not have to ever rdp into the slave box, only control it from a master box.

06:48 <Antkin> Hello RABBITBUNNY

06:48 <KathrynM> Yeah, you can control a box remotely using the manager or something like BOINCView

06:48 <KathrynM> I controll my 2 win boxes from my Linux box

06:48 <Rabbitbunny> ...Hello Antkin.

06:48 <KathrynM> using just the manager

06:49 <CoderForLife> I control my Linux boxes from Windows =)

06:49 <Rabbitbunny> That's exactly what I want to do.

06:49 <KathrynM> pft.  I'm cooler

06:49 <CoderForLife> Yes, we all know =)

06:49 <KathrynM> lol

06:49 <KathrynM>

06:52 * CoderForLife bows, and returns to working on personal finances

06:52 <Rabbitbunny> Hmm, probably not. I just need to install boinc on the '98 box, do the little cfg thing, maybe dance a little if it works first time.

06:52 * KathrynM goes back to looking for stuff on inventions

06:52 <KathrynM> don't forget the appropriate sacrifices to the computer gods

06:53 <Rabbitbunny> Oh yes, I have lots of CD-R's.

06:54 <Antkin> Rabbitbunny Boinc on Windows or Linux?

06:54 <Rabbitbunny> windows, my linux box actually gets used.

06:55 <Antkin> Rabbitbunny I have it on both

06:56 <Antkin> Rabbitbunny have you googled Boinc and downloaded it for windows?

06:56 <Rabbitbunny> Yes, I'm running five projects on my XP box.

06:57 <Antkin> Have you been with Boinc long?

06:57 <Rabbitbunny> hmm.. three months?

06:58 <Antkin> I've used Boinc for over a year

06:59 <Antkin> Which project are you with?

06:59 <Rabbitbunny> Uhh... Einstein... Rosetta... some other ones. I don't mess with it often.

07:00 <Rabbitbunny> Anyway, I have to manually move my monitor to the win98 box to setup networking and rdp.

07:01 <Antkin> I started with Seti, then did Einstein for 6 weeks 24/7 got over 29,000 credits

12:53 <nickuwo> anybody know why I would be getting a signature verification error on all my files donwloaded?

12:53 <nickuwo> i made the sig s myself....

12:53 <PovAddict> from your project?

12:53 <nickuwo> yea

12:53 <nickuwo> well in the client

12:54 <PovAddict> well did you use the right keys for signing?

12:55 <nickuwo> pretty sure... I used crypt_prog to generate the keys, then sign_excutables

12:55 <nickuwo> on all the progs

12:55 <PovAddict> ie. used the private key corresponding to the projectroot/keys/code_public public key?

12:55 <nickuwo> mmm

12:55 <nickuwo> :)

12:55 <nickuwo> I'll try that

12:55 <PovAddict> after you generate the keys, you have to copy the public key in there

12:55 <nickuwo> ok

12:55 <PovAddict> so the client knows what it is

12:56 <PovAddict> when changing keys, you may need to reattach the client

12:56 <nickuwo> ok, thanks pov

16:34 <Tank_Master> nice

16:35 <efc> has a fixed pitch panel.. I guess it doesn't matter if its really set up optimally

16:35 <Tank_Master> :)

16:36 <Tank_Master> ah long as it allows you to crunch for cheep

16:36 <efc> No, it just charges the fence (zaps animals_

16:36 <Tank_Master> oh

16:36 <efc> Judging by the pitch, its intended for Montana

16:36 <Tank_Master> well what good is that if you can use it to power your crunchers?

16:37 <efc> I don't think that thing could power a 486

16:37 * CoderOnTheCouch watches SciFi channel program on an Argentine Loch Ness monster

16:38 <efc> I suppose if I ever got a solar setup I could use it just for computer power.. Ship it in as DC, no conversion

16:38 <efc> If the voltage drop wasn't too bad

16:38 <CoderOnTheCouch> it sppears that Pov has gone fishin'
