00:00 <MTughan> Hmm... You have -pthread twice in wgap first compile, and -pthread and -lpthread in the second one.

00:01 <mweltin> so

00:01 <MTughan> I don't think it affects performance though.

00:01 <MTughan> Whatever. Your mess.

00:01 <mweltin> hahahahaha

00:01 <MTughan> If you understand it, that's all that's needed. :P

00:02 <mweltin> yes I could make things a little cleaner.

00:02 <MTughan> Hey, if it works.

00:02 <mweltin> it comes from cutting and pasting crap from differnt sources until it works.

00:02 <MTughan> The only other thing I noticed is that ga has no optimizations on it.

00:02 <Tank_Master> mw!

00:02 <mweltin> by that time I'm so sick of it I never go back to fix it.

00:02 <mweltin> Tank_Master, !!

00:02 <Tank_Master> sup?

00:02 <MTughan> wgap has -O2 on both compilations, but ga has nothing.

00:04 <mweltin> not much

00:04 <Romulus> pick the faster one

00:04 <MTughan> &stuf

00:04 <Romulus> No idea, MTughan.

00:04 <MTughan> &stfu

00:04 * Romulus shuts up (fingers crossed)

00:08 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

00:13 <nickuwo> still givin me a buttload of undefined references

00:13 <MTughan> Paste one.

00:15 <mweltin> order is important in the command line for the linker too.

00:15 <nickuwo> '/home/boincadm/boinc_trunk/lib/crypt.C undefined reference to 'RSA_size''

00:15 <nickuwo> hm

00:16 <mweltin> what?

00:16 <nickuwo> what order should they be in

00:16 <nickuwo> ?

00:16 <MTughan> Link in libcrypto, I would think. -lcrypto

00:16 <mweltin> -lcrypt

00:17 <MTughan> -lcrypto here.

00:17 <MTughan> I don't have a libcrypt.

00:17 <mweltin> I have both in my build line

00:17 <nickuwo> crypto got rid of some of them :)

00:18 <mweltin> I should try to remove one.

00:18 <MTughan> What's another one?

00:18 <nickuwo> mysql :)

00:18 <Romulus> when they put me in Wisconsin

00:18 <mweltin> -lmysqlclient

00:18 <MTughan> You should probably do -lssl too.

00:19 <nickuwo> got it :)

00:19 <nickuwo> thx guys

00:19 <MTughan> Compiles?

00:20 <nickuwo> ya

00:20 <MTughan> Good.

00:20 <mweltin> sweet

00:20 <nickuwo> superb

00:45 <TheGasGiant> that's pretty ugly Dale

00:45 <quail> yeah :-(

00:45 <efc> We need a Global Heat Distribution Network

00:46 <Tank_Master> lol

00:46 <Tank_Master> yeah, I need more heat

00:54 <KathrynM> or has it been that long since I looked at it :)

00:54 <MTughan> I've got nothing there.

00:54 <quail> MTughan: the heat killed the server :-P

00:54 <TheGasGiant> up for me as well

00:54 <MTughan> No, they redesigned it.

01:01 <KathrynM> *another thing

01:01 <mirvk2> might be obvious but im not seeing it..

01:02 <mirvk2> is it in the APP_INIT_DATA perhaps?

01:09 <mirvk2> anyhow im rambling

01:09 <mirvk2> but there was this cool way to multiply 2 2 digit numbers in like a second

01:10 <Rookie_69> calculator.

01:10 <MTughan> You mean a cool trick?

01:11 <MTughan> Rommie can do powers too.

01:12 <mirvk2> yeah cool tricks

01:12 <mirvk2> 9 year old kids were adding like 10 numbers in their head in around 5 seconds

01:12 <Romulus> thats messed up everything

01:13 <mirvk2> or multiplying 56x32 in their head no problem

01:13 <mirvk2> 1782

01:13 <mirvk2> ?

01:13 <MTughan> &math calc 56 * 32

01:13 <Romulus> MTughan: 1792

01:13 <mirvk2> close

01:13 <MTughan> 10 off.

01:14 <mirvk2> give me 2 more 2 digits

01:14 <mirvk2> someone..

01:14 <MTughan> &list math

01:14 <Romulus> MTughan: base, calc, convert, icalc, rpn, and units

01:14 <MTughan> I was hoping for a random...

01:14 <mirvk2> 38 x 59 = ?

01:15 <mirvk2> bit harder

07:05 <CoderForLife> yes, about the time we went outside yesterday, around 2:00

07:05 <CoderForLife> 12" on the driveway to move

07:05 <KathrynM> ugh

07:06 <CoderForLife> that's what I said this morning trying to rotate my shoulders

07:06 <CoderForLife> fortunately I bought a snowthrower when we moved here

07:07 <CoderForLife> I have a long driveway, as you will recall

07:07 <KathrynM> I do recall

07:07 <CoderForLife> usually takes 7 passes - due to depth, I had to "shave" off the snow

07:08 <CoderForLife> probably more like 70 passes

07:08 <KathrynM> ouch ouch ouch

07:08 <CoderForLife> kept the snowthrower running for 3 hours

07:08 <CoderForLife> not counting the manual shoveling that wife and son did

07:09 <CoderForLife> I did some shoveling too

07:09 <CoderForLife> this is the deepest snow we've seen here in about a decade or so

12:57 <CoderForLife> we're missing the global notice

12:57 <CoderForLife> Notice from christel: [Global Notice] Hi all! I am about to take down services for a tiny while to update it to the latest revision, while it's gone there will be NO services (nickserv, chanserv etc) -- downtime should be, er, hopefully a few minutes only, I will let you know when services are back up! Thank you for using freenode and have a great day!

12:59 <PovAddict> I see some grammer mistakes on the notice

13:00 <PovAddict> /typos/missing words

13:00 *** BiteAbleKat has quit IRC

13:00 <PovAddict> "for a tiny" may be "a tiny bit" or "a tiny moment" or something like that

13:01 <PovAddict> I got eclipse working btw

13:01 <CoderForLife> the phrase was "for a tiny while", rather than "for a tiny bit"

13:01 <PovAddict> oh...

13:01 <PovAddict> it looked like two mistakes...

13:01 <CoderForLife> not too grammatically wrong

13:02 <PovAddict> it looked to me like "for a tiny" missing a word, and "while to update" with one word too much

13:02 <PovAddict> ^^

13:02 <CoderForLife> uh-huh

13:02 <CoderForLife> you need to upgrade your parser

13:03 <PovAddict> indeed

13:03 <CoderForLife> yum -y update EnglishParser.PovAddict

13:04 * PovAddict runs apt-get update on his iPod

13:04 <CoderForLife> I'm wondering why the Global Update didn't show up on #boinc

13:04 <PovAddict> somebody ported apt to it :)

13:05 <CoderForLife> I have no aptitude for it

13:06 * CoderForLife continues conversion of his 1997 Borland C++ 3.1 code to VC++ 2008 Express

13:06 <CoderForLife> I'm slaying DOS-ism dragons

13:06 <PovAddict>

13:07 <CoderForLife> lol

13:08 <CoderForLife> that's worse, I've used that exact CD driver

13:08 <CoderForLife> *what's

13:08 <PovAddict> pirating may be bad

13:08 <PovAddict> but it seems a thousand times *easier* than getting it legally

13:09 <CoderForLife> cheaper, too

13:09 <PovAddict> I'd pay for it as long as it doesn't involve getting off my butt and going to a brick-and-mortar shop

13:09 <CoderForLife> I'm still exhausted from yesterday

13:09 <PovAddict> and as long as it's not ridiculously expensive

13:09 <PovAddict> Amazon mp3 is US only!

13:10 <Romulus> Rom is handling the Linux and Windows build plus coding.

13:10 * CoderForLife computes how much snow got moved yesteday

13:10 <PovAddict> tell me in tons, so it's not such a big number

13:13 <CoderForLife> I don't know it in tons, but it was on the order of 3000 cubic feet

13:13 <CoderForLife> 1 foot deep by 12 feet wide by 250 foot of driveway

13:13 <CoderForLife> &math convert

13:13 <Romulus> CoderForLife: (math convert [<number>] <unit> to <other unit>) -- Converts from <unit> to <other unit>. If number isn't given, it defaults to 1. For unit information, see 'units' command.

13:20 <PovAddict> eclipse cdt seems to be working okay...

13:20 <PovAddict> I have yet to try the debugger

13:25 <CoderForLife> now we hear something

13:25 <CoderForLife> VC++ 2008 is throwing errors and warnings like a champ

13:27 <PovAddict> debugger: total failure

13:27 <PovAddict> gdb says "you can't do that wihout a process to debug"

13:27 <PovAddict> I don't know what "that" is

13:28 <PovAddict> or why eclipse isn't passing a process to debug

13:29 <CoderForLife> it's tired?

13:29 <CoderForLife> not in it's job description?

14:30 <Romulus> Title: NearlyFreeSpeech.NET Offsite Network Status Monitor (at

14:30 * CoderForLife is undergoing case after case of "what did I intend for this Code to do ten years ago?"

14:33 <CoderForLife> ouch ouch ouch

14:34 <PovAddict> sounds like something you'll !love to have happen to you

14:34 <PovAddict> note boolean negation operator

14:34 <CoderForLife> we've er, "found* single points of failure before

14:36 <CoderForLife> one time we were demoing our first company web site at our convention, and instructed the vendor we were using at the time to not touch the server that day (*Big* rollout).  They decided one hour before the demo to take the server down.

14:36 <CoderForLife> They forgot.

14:37 <CoderForLife> And they got fired.

14:37 <PovAddict> I think it was Einstein who said "There are only two things that are infinite: the universe, and human stupidity. And I'm not even so sure about the universe."

14:37 <CoderForLife> right-o

14:38 <CoderForLife> I don't remember ever screaming quite like I did at them on the phone.

14:39 * CoderForLife is getting tired of fooling with date conversions

14:43 <PovAddict> <Jessicatz> I wasnt removing a sdl_timer and thus it tried to access memory that was deallocated

14:43 <PovAddict> <rnx> the beauty of C

14:43 <PovAddict> <Jessicatz> yea, C is really awesCaught SIGSEGV: Aborted.

14:43 <Romulus> but the memory is $130 now and very slippery..

14:45 <CoderForLife> lol

14:45 <CoderForLife> I have to get to a clean compile before I can segfault

14:46 <CoderForLife> I produced quite a bit of Code in 1997 and 1998

14:46 <CoderForLife> too bad it didn't pay off

15:02 * CoderForLife slowly finds and fixes clocks in the house

15:04 * xcamel_away is back.

15:04 *** xcamel_away is now known as xcamel

15:04 <xcamel> re-hi

15:05 <PovAddict> hey

15:05 <PovAddict> wb

15:07 <CoderForLife> hello Jay

15:08 <CoderForLife> need some White Death up there?

15:08 <xcamel> got plenty - and ice.

15:08 <CoderForLife> I'm stacked up 12 inches deep

15:08 <Romulus> Sucks power though... Max power of 171W.

15:09 <xcamel> took over 24 hours to get home from St T.

15:09 <CoderForLife> ouch

15:10 <PovAddict> *sneeze*

15:10 * CoderForLife curses the #defines in VC++ that overlap his names

15:10 <PovAddict> ow by doze

15:11 <CoderForLife> I was there first - why do I have to rename mine??

15:11 <CoderForLife> pOpt->SearchPath.Data

15:12 <CoderForLife> SearchPath is a VC++ define

15:12 <PovAddict> SearchPath is a define?

15:12 <CoderForLife> sux

15:12 <PovAddict> #undef SearchPath :)

15:12 <CoderForLife> lol

15:12 <CoderForLife> sure, np =)

15:12 <PovAddict> #define EVIL_WORKAROUND 1

15:13 <CoderForLife> *VC++ dissolves*

15:13 <PovAddict> I bet it's the usual thing from WinAPI

15:13 <PovAddict> #ifdef UNICODE

15:13 <PovAddict> #define SearchPath SearchPathW

15:13 <PovAddict> #else

15:13 <PovAddict> #define SearchPath SearchPathA

15:14 <CoderForLife> lemme see

15:14 <CoderForLife> yeah - it's SearchPathW

15:14 <CoderForLife> and that is...

15:14 <PovAddict> well, if you aren't going to use the SearchPath function, #undef it :)

15:15 <PovAddict>

15:15 <Romulus> <> (at

15:15 <CoderForLife> I only used my SeachPath in 154 places

15:16 <PovAddict> yeah but is that your SearchPath or the Windows API function?

15:16 <CoderForLife> all of the 154 are instances of my variable

15:16 <CoderForLife> but

15:16 <CoderForLife> I am not such yet how all this will map over onto VC++

15:17 <PovAddict> if you haven't used the SearchPath Windows API function anywhere, VC++ won't even notice

15:21 <CoderForLife> I haven't Coded anything to the Windows API yet - just trying to sling this old DOS code into a console app as a first step

15:21 <PovAddict> hmm

15:22 <CoderForLife> trying to convince it not to use registers and call DOS

15:22 <PovAddict> then I wonder why that define is bothering you at all... if you aren't using windows api at all yet, you probably aren't #including <windows.h>

15:22 <PovAddict> or are you?

15:22 <CoderForLife> or insert a Critical Error Handler, or intercept CTRL-C

15:22 <CoderForLife> I have to include windows.h for a console app

15:23 <CoderForLife> I still have to talk to the OS

15:23 <CoderForLife> It has things I want, like the keyboard, screen, files, and other stuff

15:23 <PovAddict> I use stdio for files :)

15:24 <CoderForLife> I am reading spreadsheets and databases in their native formats

15:24 <PovAddict> :o

15:24 <CoderForLife> yes, stdio is certainly involved

15:24 <CoderForLife> yup, you understand

15:24 <CoderForLife> my program opens Excel files and Access databases directly

15:25 <CoderForLife> and a whole bunch of other formats

15:25 <Romulus> combine the 2 hydrogen attams and produce healem

15:26 <CoderForLife> yes Rommie, it can do that, too

15:31 <CoderForLife> looks like I can avoid modifying my vanilla VC++ config if I rename my SearchPath.Data, SearchPath.cntCur and SearchPath.cntMax references

15:32 * CoderForLife changes definition to "ThisSearchPath"

15:34 <CoderForLife> done

15:49 <xcamel> back again

15:49 <xcamel> going from 85 to 25 is not too nice.

15:50 <wdsmia> wb Jay

15:51 <xcamel> thanks

15:52 <wdsmia> btw you need to look at Rommies weather

15:52 <wdsmia> &weather 50319

15:52 <xcamel> not working?

15:52 <Romulus> has anybody else here run Rosetta recently?

15:52 <PovAddict> giving out random cities that don't match zipcode, apparently

15:52 <PovAddict> &weather buenos aires

15:52 <Romulus> PovAddict: Error: HTTP Error 500: Server Error

15:52 <xcamel> that's odd..

15:53 <wdsmia> no forcast only current weather

15:55 <CoderForLife> thermal whiplash?

16:01 *** Romulus has joined #boinc

16:04 * Tank_Master slaps Romulus around a bit with a large trout

16:05 <Tank_Master> how can you forcast the current weather?

16:05 <Tank_Master> it just displays the current

16:06 <PovAddict> &weather 45140

16:06 <Romulus> PovAddict: The current temperature in Loveland OH - Miami Township Clermont County, Loveland, Ohio is 41.5F (4:05 PM EDT on March 09, 2008). Conditions: Clear. Humidity: 52%. Dew Point: 24.8F. Windchill: 41.0F. Pressure: 30.33 in 1027.0 hPa (Falling).

16:06 <PovAddict> that better, CoderForLife?

16:07 <Tank_Master> thats no waether forcast

16:08 <CoderForLife> nope

16:08 <Tank_Master> thats just the current conditions

16:08 <Tank_Master> I think the weather plugin has been changed

16:08 * CoderForLife casts a glance at his wather station

16:08 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: but is it the correct place at least?

16:09 <Tank_Master> yeah, that part worked for me

16:09 <CoderForLife> Gives the city, rather than someone's farm

16:09 <CoderForLife> I was occasionally getting "Loveland", but mostly "Mitchell Farm", iirc

16:10 <PovAddict> yup

16:10 <nickuwo> anybody have any excperience with GMP?

16:10 <xcamel> not sire what happened to that one..

16:11 <xcamel> er not ssure even

16:11 <PovAddict> nickuwo: the bignum library?

16:11 <CoderForLife> someone has pulled a switcheroo under Rommie

16:11 <nickuwo> yea

16:11 <PovAddict> nope, never used it

16:11 <PovAddict> I know what it is, and that's it :)

16:12 <nickuwo> :) bummer

16:12 <nickuwo> no #gmp channel either

16:12 <nickuwo> you think mweltin is working with that?

16:14 <nickuwo> the more I think about it, the more both our projects seem very similar...

16:37 <CoderForLife> bbl

16:43 <nickuwo> does anyone know anything about the parse_file method in sched_config.h?

16:44 <PovAddict> it's defined in sched_config.C - does that count as knowing something about it?

16:45 <nickuwo> hmm, maybe

16:46 <PovAddict> how about asking an actual question :)

16:47 <nickuwo> so I'm getting a [CRITICAL] can't find config file when I run both my own and the sample work generator... they are both in bin/  and that error message comes from parse_file returning an error

16:48 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

16:48 <nickuwo> I tried passing "~/projects/ramsey/" to parse_file instead of ".." which it originally was

16:48 <nickuwo> to no avail

16:48 <PovAddict> you mean in the log file or are you running them manually?

16:48 <nickuwo> both

16:48 <PovAddict> how are you running it manually?

16:48 <PovAddict> ./bin/workgen?

16:49 <nickuwo> ./bin/sample_workgenerator

16:49 <PovAddict> fail

16:49 <PovAddict> current directory has to be bin

16:49 <PovAddict> cd bin; ./workgen

16:49 <nickuwo> i c

16:49 <PovAddict> also, ~ is expanded by the shell, so it won't work

16:49 <nickuwo> so ".."

16:49 <nickuwo> o

16:49 <PovAddict> yep that's why it uses ..

16:49 <nickuwo> so when I run it from ramsey/ it reads ".." and goes to /projects/

16:50 <PovAddict> yep and you don't have a /projects/config.xml :)

16:50 <nickuwo> right :)

16:50 *** efc has joined #boinc

17:11 <nickuwo> so Pov... :) I've instantiated two gmp's right, call them start and million... I want to print start to an input file, then add it to million, and print it on the next line. I've been trying to use fprintf like in the example and also ofstream myFile, myFile.write() etc... but with no luck. What method/s would you suggest?

17:12 <PovAddict> I never used gmp

17:12 <efc> gmp the numerics package?

17:13 <nickuwo> I believe they have toString methods tho, so can't I just fprintf(start);?

17:13 <PovAddict> yes

17:13 <efc> I compiled something with it once, long ago..

17:13 <nickuwo> did you use the c++ wrappers?

17:13 <efc> Wrote straight c

17:13 <nickuwo> ahh

17:14 <nickuwo> how do you print them to a file>

17:14 <efc> Was going to do some factoring algorithms but my ideas were garbage

17:14 <Romulus> nificant savings in area and power but low number of individual reactions going up

17:14 <efc> I just printed to screen. I think there was some function to give you a null terminated string of some sort.

17:14 <nickuwo> ok

17:15 <efc> I don't remember having any problems with printing.
