00:08 <mweltin> any one?

00:08 <ircleuser> hey mweltin

00:08 *** ircleuser is now known as nickuwo1

00:09 <mweltin> hey I don't suppose you are attached to my prject?

00:09 <mweltin> hahahaha

00:09 <mweltin> I was wondering who you were, how goes it nickuwol?

00:09 <nickuwo1> pretty good, u?

00:09 <mweltin> good but my results are taking forever to come back.

00:10 <nickuwo1> hmm, back from the client?

00:10 <mweltin> yeah

00:10 <mweltin> its been hours for a task that shoudl only take a few min.

00:10 <nickuwo1> that's no good

00:13 <mweltin> nope

00:13 <mweltin> how is your project going?

00:13 *** nickuwo1 has quit IRC

00:14 *** ircleuser has joined #BOINC

00:15 *** ircleuser is now known as nickuwo1

00:15 <mweltin> hwo is your project going?

00:16 <nickuwo1> pretty good, we should be testing next week, then I'll have two months to think up some good heuristics and implement them, and then we should be golden

00:17 <Romulus> I'll fool iwth it this way!

00:17 <mweltin> is yours an in house project just for your company or is it a public project?

00:18 <nickuwo1> the plan right now is just to run it on my school's 500ish computers over the summer, but I'd like to take it public after that.

00:19 <mweltin> oh yeah I wanted to ask you about spanning trees.

00:19 <mweltin> do they have to contain every edge?

00:20 <nickuwo1> minimum spanning trees?

00:20 <mweltin> yeah, you do graph theory right?

00:20 <mweltin> your project is some graph color thing isn't it?

00:21 <nickuwo1> a bit :), no minimum spanning trees contain every point, but not every edge

00:21 <nickuwo1> i believe

00:21 <mweltin> and no cycles

00:21 <mweltin> that makes way more sense then the last description I read.

00:22 <nickuwo1> a bit obfuscated<sp?>

00:22 <mweltin> a subgraph which is a tree and connects all the vertices together.

00:23 <nickuwo1> sounds right to me.

00:24 <nickuwo1> sounds like TSP... have you checked out "Intro to algorithms"?

00:25 <mweltin> no was I supposed to?

00:25 <mweltin> I took a cs class called that once.

00:26 <nickuwo1> no, I was just curious, theres some interesting algorithms in there for constructing min span trees

00:27 <mweltin> is it a book?

00:27 <nickuwo1> yes

00:27 <mweltin> who is the author?

00:28 <nickuwo1> cormen, rivest, stein, theres also video lectures from a course taught from the book at MIT's website

00:28 <mweltin> nice

00:28 <mweltin> not that I can get video but still nice.

00:30 <mweltin> that looks like I book I have seen.

00:30 * mweltin wonders what hte first edition book cover looked like.

00:31 <nickuwo1> has a mobile on it

00:31 <mweltin> ok

00:31 <nickuwo1> wait thats the 2nd

00:33 <mweltin> I have to get ready for dinner.

00:33 <mweltin> I made a bunch more WU's I'll see how that goes.

00:33 <mweltin> did you start learing the boinc API >

00:33 <mweltin> ?

00:33 <nickuwo1> not lately, been pretty busy

00:34 <mweltin> too busy for boinc?

00:34 <mweltin> ok I can understand that.

00:34 <nickuwo1> hard to believe :)

00:34 <mweltin> I'll be back later

00:34 <mweltin> take care

02:39 *** Wabbit67 has quit IRC

02:39 <d00m1001> It took about 5 months to finish the last QMC D:

02:39 <d00m1001> Which is okay I guess..

02:39 <Tank_Master> strange

02:39 <d00m1001> Cause it gives SETI a chance to do things.

02:49 <Tank_Master> wasted 10h of work

05:02 <CoderForLife> hey

05:02 <mweltin> ok now I know you are up early even for you

05:02 <mweltin> it's only 10pm here

05:02 <CoderForLife> normal wake-up time

05:02 <Romulus> DA also does not help much with mismatched sizes like that

05:03 <CoderForLife> I'm reading about the ICACLS utility from Vista and Server 2003

05:04 <mweltin> I'm reading about EAN (enriched air nitrox) for diving tomorrow.

05:05 <CoderForLife> that makes you a better person than me =)

05:05 <mweltin> more interesting but not better

05:07 <DerMeister> icacls? is this something like cacls on XP?

05:08 <mweltin> or somethign like google calendar on any browser?

05:08 <Romulus> So it must be about my "chores"

05:11 <CoderForLife> yes DerMeister, an "improved" version in Vista and Windows Server 2003 SP2

05:11 <DerMeister> ah... sounds nice...

05:11 <mweltin> so this is strange, oxygen can be toxic, and if you suffer oxygen toxicity, one of the first things they do for first aid is administer oxygen.

05:11 <mweltin> who knew?

05:12 <CoderForLife> get too much of a good thing, and they give you more

07:42 * KathrynM wonders if she'll have the patience to attempt to install Linux on the other laptop without a gui

07:42 <CoderForLife> I never get any orbit Wus

07:42 <CoderForLife> are they sending them?

07:42 <CoderForLife> always "no work"

07:42 <KathrynM> linux only afaik

07:43 <CoderForLife> ah

08:20 <KathrynM> I should screen shot that.

08:36 <CoderForLife> I've been signed up for a *long* time, waiting for WUs

08:38 <KathrynM> They're definitely longer now...

08:38 <KathrynM> last batch was running a bit over 30 minutes

08:39 <KathrynM> this one is almost to an hour and not yet at 3% done

08:39 <CoderForLife> what?  my first one is 176 hours

08:46 <CoderForLife> after I get QMC to pass 1 million, I plan to switch over more to orbit

08:47 <KathrynM> I'm looking forward to 750K overall

08:47 <KathrynM> Should be somewhere around May 10th according to BoincStats

08:48 <hawmps> geez... got one orbit unit..

08:50 *** NudgeyNR has quit IRC

13:06 <CoderForLife> speaking of wind out of my sails...

13:06 <CoderForLife> hello Rookie_69

13:07 <Rookie_69> Hi, CoderForLife.

13:08 <CoderForLife> you off for Good Friday?

13:09 <Rookie_69> OK.

13:09 * CoderForLife scratches his head

13:10 <Rookie_69> I'm off for the annual friday off in March.

13:10 <Rookie_69> Call it what you will.

13:10 <CoderForLife> hmm

13:10 * CoderForLife watches the reading on the #boinc attitude meter

13:11 * Rookie_69 thinks the calendar calls it Good Friday.

13:11 <Rookie_69> Any friday off is a good one.

13:11 * CoderForLife sees the needle first climb then drop a little

13:11 <CoderForLife> yep

13:11 <Romulus> but at least I could listen

13:12 <CoderForLife> listen, to your calendar?

13:12 * Rookie_69 thinks Romulus shouldn't listen as much.

13:12 <CoderForLife> ah, you must have a talking calendar!

13:13 <Rookie_69> Not intentionally...

13:13 <CoderForLife> your calendar talks randomly?

13:14 <Rookie_69> But sometimes inanimate objects talk to me...

13:14 * Rookie_69 talks randomly.

13:15 <CoderForLife> I have that problem, until someone broke in and stole all my talking inanimate objects, and replaced them with exact duplicates

13:15 <Rookie_69> Lol.

13:15 <CoderForLife> my wife came in and I tried to explain it to her - she said "do I know you?"

13:16 <Rookie_69> Apparently not, if you had to explain.

13:16 <CoderForLife> maybe someone replaced her as well

13:17 <Rookie_69> Aliens in my closet/bedsheets?

13:17 <CoderForLife> actually - that was a poor rendition of material I stole from Steven Wright, the comedian

13:18 <Rookie_69> Lol.

13:18 <Rookie_69> "Paraphrased"...

13:19 * Rookie_69 wonders if he can burn out motor in shredder by stuffing in more than six sheets at a time...

13:21 * Rookie_69 wonders why he is finding documents dated 2000...

13:22 <CoderForLife> lol

13:22 <CoderForLife> "I went into this restaurant that serves you breakfast at any time, so I ordered French toast during the Renaissance."

13:22 <Rookie_69> LOl.

13:22 <Rookie_69> Lol.

13:22 <CoderForLife> "If it's a penny for your thoughts, and you put your two cents in, someone's making a penny."

13:23 <Rookie_69> Big bangers and mash on the menu?

13:23 <CoderForLife> here it is - "When I woke up, everything in my apartment had been stolen...and replaced with exact duplicates."

13:24 <Rookie_69> Paranoia may destroy ya...

13:24 <Rookie_69> Sounds almost half familiar.

13:24 <CoderForLife> "I saw a subliminal advertising executive, but only for a second."

13:27 <Rookie_69> Subliminal advertising is gone the way of the dinosaur... Now, advertisers just try to insult you.

13:27 <Rookie_69> ... or your intelligence...

13:29 <Rookie_69> I've missed the second half of several shows because I refused to be bombarded by the sponsors.

13:31 <Rookie_69> "If I had my life to live over, I'd live it over a brothel."

13:32 <Rookie_69> Somebody keeps binking my dreers...:-(

13:36 <Rookie_69> I wonder if I have enough NSF cheques from a certain former employer to paper one wall or should I just shred them?

13:39 <Rookie_69> The bankruptcy hearing netted me exactly $0.

13:39 <Rookie_69> Shred.

13:48 <Rookie_69> Sometimes, I think an old fashioned woodstove is better than a shredder for destroying documents. The rest of the time, I am sure of it.

13:51 <Rookie_69> Knit one, purl two, tear out three...

13:54 <Rookie_69> I spend at least as much time clearing jams as I do shredding paper.

14:01 * Rookie_69 is trying to find parts that fell into (full) shred catcher.

14:03 <hawmps> crunch & grind

14:04 <desti>

14:06 <Rookie_69> Imagine that... It works again... or seems to.

14:08 <Rookie_69> ... and all fingers at least as intact as they were before opening shredder.

14:11 * Rookie_69 wanders off to find more ancient documents to shred...

14:15 <Rookie_69> Hmm... ancient artifact with serial port plug on one end and PS2 plug on the other...

14:16 <Rookie_69> ... and small rodent icon on the side.

14:16 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

14:20 <Rookie_69> Hmm... Hardcover novels won't fit into shredder... I guess I'll keep them.

14:20 <Romulus> yes I understand the idea from

14:23 <Tank_Master> from...

14:23 <Tank_Master> from what?

14:23 <Tank_Master> *stupid bot*

14:24 <Rookie_69> There is no such thing as a stupid bot... only a stupid answer... from a BOT!!!

14:26 <Rookie_69> ;-)

14:29 <Rookie_69> Practically untouched manual for long-dead network hub... that's shredder material too.

14:32 <Rookie_69> Soundblaster manual... I don't think I own one.

14:36 <Rookie_69> No easter eggs found among shredded paper yet :-(

14:38 <Rookie_69> Calendar pages from 2004???

14:40 * Rookie_69 needs to clean up more often... no,

16:57 <mweltin> that will be later, but yes I'll be diving today.

16:57 <mweltin> it's only 10am

17:02 <CoderForLife> s/did/will/g

17:02 <mweltin> hey I met a guy whoes name was "vi"

17:02 <mweltin> its spelled vai but still.

17:02 <mweltin> it made me laugh

17:03 <CoderForLife> oh wow

17:03 <TheGasGiant> g'day CFL

17:03 <CoderForLife> look who just showed up

17:03 <mweltin> I haev to learn how to set my dive computer for nitrox before I go.

17:03 <CoderForLife> hey Paul

17:04 <CoderForLife> yeah, you mentioned you were readin up on that

17:04 <TheGasGiant> I'm on vacation down the coast and thought i'd install irc and have a chat over my cell phone

17:04 <CoderForLife> you technoweenie

17:04 <mweltin> you are on vacation and you decide to irc here?  Yes uber-techno-weenie

17:04 <mweltin> where are you ?

17:04 <Romulus> I guess you are upper fayl, mweltin

17:04 <TheGasGiant> lol...i try to do my bit

17:05 <CoderForLife> over a cell phone, no less

17:05 <mweltin> LOL

17:05 <CoderForLife> showing your bits, I'd say

17:05 <TheGasGiant> Philip Island in Victoria, Australia...about a 1.5 hr drive from home

17:05 <mweltin> just don't byte off more than you can chew.

17:05 <Romulus> I disagree with zombie

17:05 <CoderForLife> you opinion doesn't matter Rommie

17:05 <TheGasGiant> mind you it took closer to 3 hrs to get here due to traffic

17:06 <mweltin> Nice I'm not all that far from you then. (american Samoa)

17:06 <CoderForLife> last vacaction before winter?

17:06 <mweltin> ouch

17:06 <TheGasGiant> lol...

17:06 <CoderForLife> er vacation

17:06 <TheGasGiant> yeah, last week the temp was 40C, now it's 20C

17:06 <xcamel> 'lo Paul...

17:07 <TheGasGiant> sucks for swimming in the ocean...heya Jay

17:07 <xcamel> how goes it..

17:07 <TheGasGiant> all well..sort off...latency sucks

17:07 <CoderForLife> how much cell phone bandwidth do you have?

17:08 <hickop> hey, got a problem with my boinc process priority. even if i set it to low priority it will take at least 50% of my cpu, any idea why ?

17:08 <TheGasGiant> says 12mbps, but I think it's good ol' dial up speed

17:08 <CoderForLife> a h  g o t  t o  l o v e  d i a l u p

17:08 <TheGasGiant> hickop, that's what boinc does.  it takes all your spare cpu cycles

17:09 <xcamel> iow... it takes all the ones you're not using...

17:09 <hickop> TheGasGiant: sure but when i run other apps that may needs 100% cpu to run good why dont boinc set is cpu needs to 0% ?

17:09 <TheGasGiant> CFL it took 15 minutes to download the 2.7MB for this irc client install

17:10 <CoderForLife> gee

17:10 <xcamel> hic - it will, and does.

17:11 <xcamel> geez.. I thought orbit was going to have some real work for once..

17:11 <hickop> xcamel: it doesnt here :/ still 50% cpu used at minimum :/ so other apps are laggy

17:11 <TheGasGiant> i run it 24/7 and don't see a problem when running other cpu intensive programs

17:12 <xcamel> you may think that's what's happening - I'm betting not.

17:12 <hickop> xcamel: i'm not thinking, i'm seeing it with htop :)

17:12 <xcamel> I run all my boxes full bore with boinc, and never have a problem..

17:13 <hickop> its nice level is at 19 and it still take my CPU :'(

17:14 <xcamel> sure it's not disc access problems?

17:14 <CoderForLife> it should give it up when another process wants C

17:14 <CoderForLife> PU

17:14 <hickop> but it doesnt ...

17:14 <CoderForLife> I have a quad processor, all CPUs running at 100%

17:15 <CoderForLife> all nice 19

17:15 <mweltin> sweet!! my results match accross platforms!

17:15 <CoderForLife> congrats mweltin

17:15 <hickop> are all ur boinc processes user & groups named "boinc" ?

17:15 <mweltin> thanks I'm ready to do some dammage, after the dive of course.

17:15 <TheGasGiant> a great result mweltin

17:16 <wdsmia> re-hi

17:16 <TheGasGiant> heya doug

17:16 <wdsmia> *lo paul

17:16 <mweltin> hickop, mine are, but that is by design, and I'm runing a project not a client, so I'm not sure if that helps you.

17:26 <CoderForLife> huh?

17:26 <TheGasGiant> i've got no chat for 8 minutes

17:26 <CoderForLife> I'm Coding =)

17:27 <TheGasGiant> Coding?  lol

17:27 <CoderForLife> yup

17:27 <CoderForLife> been working outside all day

17:27 <TheGasGiant> floods not effect you?

17:27 *** J-23 has left #boinc

17:27 <CoderForLife> ROFLMAO

17:28 <CoderForLife> you need to check in from time to time =)

17:28 <hickop> here is screenshot showing my sitution:

17:28 <TheGasGiant> yup..i do

17:28 <Romulus> <> (at

17:28 <Romulus> crap this is for validation, correct

17:28 <hickop> higlighted process may need more CPU but as u can see boinc i blocking 50 % of it

17:31 <TheGasGiant> slow to view in this dialup speed state I'm in

17:32 * CoderForLife lives in the state of confusion

17:32 <CoderForLife> I'll show you some pics when you have some bandwidth TGG

17:33 <TheGasGiant> when i get back (next Friday) I'll drop in again

17:33 <hickop> could it come from my boinc version ? 5.10.28

17:34 <CoderForLife> I can't really read your screen hickop

17:34 <CoderForLife> what priority and nice is boinc itself running at?

17:34 <Rookie_69> Cincinnati, Confusion, USA???

17:34 <CoderForLife> mine is 20 and 0

17:34 <hickop> u can zoom it by clocking buttons bottom of the screen

17:34 <CoderForLife> my 4 WU processes have the same priority and nice as yours

17:35 <TheGasGiant> boinc shouldn't be taking many cpu cycles, just the project app should be taking the cycles

17:35 <CoderForLife> my browser seems to be auto-sizing it

17:35 <TheGasGiant> i'm going to head off..son wants to play on my laptop

17:35 <hickop> yes , its not boinc himseld , its project WU that is taking the 50%

17:35 <CoderForLife> OK  stop back soon

17:35 <TheGasGiant> i hope he doesn't break it

17:35 <TheGasGiant> ;)

17:35 <CoderForLife> lol

17:36 <CoderForLife> he is his father's son....

17:36 <TheGasGiant> at least I can chat via me cell

17:37 <Romulus> <> (at

17:38 <CoderForLife> you might try -daemon on your boinc process

17:38 <CoderForLife> you might be running as a foreground app

17:39 <Romulus> the .sh you can install X

17:39 <hickop> i'm running it as a daemon

17:39 <hickop> whit /etc/init.d/boinc

17:39 <CoderForLife> your command line doesn't say that

17:39 <CoderForLife> no -daemon parm

17:40 <hickop> hum

17:40 <CoderForLife> dunno - just asking...

17:40 <CoderForLife> I run with -daemon

17:40 <CoderForLife> and -return_results_immediately

17:41 <CoderForLife> as well as the remote RPC GUI parm

17:41 <hickop> with boinc_cmd ?

17:44 <hickop> no --daemon flag is set in he startp script

17:44 * Rookie_69 doesn't even remember how he got BOINC to run on linux box.

17:47 <CoderForLife> I just start it myself

17:49 <mweltin> same here.

17:49 <CoderForLife> ./boinc -with_remote_gui_rpc -return_results_immediately -daemon

17:49 <CoderForLife> YMMV

17:49 <CoderForLife> been doing that for years

17:50 *** Vecnah has quit IRC

17:51 <xcamel> PoV said -return_results_immediately has been disabled for a while now..

17:51 <CoderForLife> oh well

17:51 <Rookie_69> Umm... I click on "boincmgr"...

17:51 <CoderForLife> no harm

17:51 <xcamel> ir was handy though..

17:51 <CoderForLife> yup

17:54 <hickop> okay i edited script config files so it takes daemon flag on start ...

17:55 <hickop> but it is the same :'(

18:00 <CoderForLife> ick

18:01 <CoderForLife> sorry - my boinc is running at pr 20 ni 0

18:01 <CoderForLife> yours is/was 39/19

18:02 <CoderForLife> thought maybe -daemon might be involved

18:02 <hickop> i did try to renice to level 0 too

18:03 <CoderForLife> yes, good

18:03 <hickop> but still the same :)

18:05 <hickop> was thinking it come from the boinc group

18:06 <hickop> maybe processes are shared through groups

18:06 <hickop> so 50% for boinc group and 50% for hickop

18:06 <hickop> but i dont know how is it really working

18:10 *** mweltin has quit IRC

18:10 <CoderForLife> I dunno - you're beyond my experience - sorry

18:11 <CoderForLife> seems like basic processes stuff, though

18:11 <xcamel> the boinc coders don't even know how it **really** works

18:12 <hickop> i think i pointed out the problem !

18:12 <xcamel> best not to 'overthink it'

18:12 <hickop> i did change user of boinc to root

18:12 <hickop> so now its worse xD

18:12 <hickop> boinc will have now 66% of use minimum

18:12 <xcamel> root is a more privileged user

18:12 <hickop> yea thats why

18:13 <hickop> so maybe boinc is too privilegied

18:13 <xcamel> boinc also seems to need some time to adapt to your system...

18:14 <xcamel> usually a few days to  'settle in' depending on what projects you run

18:14 <xcamel> what distro, hic?

18:14 <hickop> gentoo

18:14 <CoderForLife> my boinc runs as root

18:14 <xcamel> 32 bit?

18:14 <hickop> 64

18:14 <xcamel> ditto, cfl

18:15 <xcamel> oh.. thare's part of it..

18:15 <hickop> Oo ?

18:15 <xcamel> boinc loves the 64 bit horsepower..

18:16 <xcamel> I have 2 identical core 2 qads - one 32bit, one 64bit FC8

18:16 <CoderForLife> does 64-bit Linux favor 64-bit apps over 32-bit apps?

18:16 <xcamel> the 64 bit box puts out more than double of the 32 bit one..

18:17 <CoderForLife> from a process management point of view?

18:17 <xcamel> but still running 100% cpu, nice 19

18:17 <hickop> but my processor is still not sufficient with those 50% missing :)

18:17 <CoderForLife> again - we're talking priority and nice, I think

18:18 <xcamel> what are you running it on?

18:18 <CoderForLife> me?

18:18 <xcamel> hic

18:19 <hickop> not much, teamspeak server, video platform, music player , wine server to run windows apps

18:19 <xcamel> I mean the cpu..

18:19 <CoderForLife> what processor/box

18:19 <hickop> but what is making suffer to my distro is when i'm compiling

18:19 <hickop> ho :)

18:19 <hickop> amd 3200+

18:20 <xcamel> well...yeah...

18:20 * CoderForLife looks back at his Code

18:20 <xcamel> gcc and boinc together is going to bring your box right to it's knees...

18:30 <efc> Oh umm disregard that

18:31 <hickop> tried x86 client too , the same ! Oo

18:31 * hickop feel unlucky

18:34 <efc> Pooey on these low interest rates

18:43 <xcamel> a 3% loan is useless if nobody can qualify..

18:43 <hickop> HAHA !

18:43 <hickop> found it

18:44 <efc> I mean, the rates they pay me.. they stink

18:44 <hickop> now i'm running boinc as hickop user and it works !

18:45 <efc> down to ~3%

18:45 <xcamel> good for you, hic

18:46 <hickop> now i need to find why boinc user seam to have more privilege

18:46 <hickop> :)

18:47 <Rookie_69> BOINC is more important than compiling, and box knows it.

18:47 <Rookie_69> ;-)

18:48 <hickop> but if boinc doesnt let it compile, it wont compile boinc ether :D

18:49 <hickop> omg i just broke my brain

19:04 <tricaric> hello

19:04 <tricaric> users of orbit seem to have problems suspending the app... is there something special I need to include in my app to allow this?

19:05 <xcamel> I need to get some work for it to figure that out...

19:05 <Rookie_69> Hi, Pasquale.

19:05 <xcamel> are you the 'orbit guiy' ?

19:05 <tricaric> ;-)

19:06 <xcamel> er guy even?

19:06 <tricaric> yep

19:06 <xcamel> cool..

19:06 <xcamel> sadly, no work... nothing to suspend...

19:06 <tricaric> only linux apps for now

19:07 <xcamel> most all of mine are linux

19:07 <Rookie_69> Hmm...

19:07 <xcamel> dual and quads

19:07 <xcamel> and one 64 bit

19:07 <tricaric> there are 12 results ready to be sent out right now

19:08 <xcamel> getting 0 tasks

19:08 <tricaric> linux 32 bits?

19:08 <xcamel> yup

19:10 <xcamel> host 2321

19:11 <xcamel> only 2286, and 2289 got work out of 10 hosts got work

19:11 <Rookie_69> Sez no work:-(

19:11 <tricaric> ok

19:11 <xcamel> ditto.

19:12 <xcamel> check my hostlist (xcamel) I put some good horsepower on it..

19:13 <xcamel> only 2 winboxes

19:14 <tricaric> creating more wu right now... please try again

19:14 * efc feels as sorry for xcamel's lack of work as as rookie does for efc's lack of interest

19:15 <tricaric> about 40 ready now

19:15 <xcamel> 2 minute countdown..

19:16 <xcamel> nope.. nothing in the pipe.

19:16 <Rookie_69> No luck here.

19:17 <tricaric> for some reason, it always takes a few mins between wu creation and wu sent to clients...

19:17 <xcamel> such is the life of a project manager..

19:17 <xcamel> kyzyl coming up on retry..

19:18 <xcamel> nada.

19:20 <xcamel> did get some work I didn't need though..

19:20 <Rookie_69> At least now I know why I didn't get any work when others did. :-)

19:21 <tricaric> try now!

19:21 <tricaric> I see it's sending out right now... still 30 available..

19:21 <xcamel> ok.. supercaml just grabbed 9

19:21 <Rookie_69> Got some :-)

19:22 <xcamel> kyzyl got 1

19:22 <Rookie_69> ... do we need to try suspending app now?

19:22 <tricaric> I guess so... I need to find out why the suspend doesn't work, and the app keeps running in background

19:23 <xcamel> lol - still getting the apps for sc

19:24 <xcamel> your deadline time is too short..

19:24 <Rookie_69> Suspend and comp time kept counting and SETI app restarted... resume and orbit is now waiting to run.

19:24 <xcamel> but I have 2 running on kyzyl now..

19:25 <Romulus> anybody know anything about a foot, BB

19:25 <xcamel> I suspended, but they are still running at 100%

19:26 <xcamel> checking other box...

19:26 <Rookie_69> Hmm... orbit WU is still working too...

19:27 <xcamel> looks like the app is not getting the sleep command

19:29 <xcamel> oh boy.. 4 apps running on 2 cores....

19:30 <xcamel> that's weird...

19:30 <CoderForLife> yeah - I can also report that orbit doesn't suspend

19:30 <tricaric> ok...

19:30 <tricaric> so, what should I do?

19:31 <xcamel> check the sleep command sent via the manager

19:32 <xcamel> I'll be damned if seti and survey aren't running right together...

19:33 <tricaric> I'm trying to find out about this in the BOINC docs

19:33 <xcamel> and DA said this was not possible...

20:08 <KathrynM> Mine got interrupted in the middle of the night when logrotate ran

20:09 <xcamel> supercaml finished them in 38 minutes..

20:09 <KathrynM> But CPU time looks right

20:09 <KathrynM> See that's how the last batch was for me.

20:09 <Romulus> The Final Front Ear is 5th

20:09 <KathrynM> They were about 32 minutues

20:09 <KathrynM> no Romulus, we're #1

20:09 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

20:09 <tricaric> there are several different WUs... some take 1 hour, some 1 week...

20:09 <KathrynM> great.........

20:09 <KathrynM> lol

20:10 <xcamel> nice mix..

20:10 <KathrynM> the 1 hour ones, is that were the earth is destroyed?

20:10 <xcamel> now go make more...

20:10 <xcamel> :-)

20:10 <KathrynM> (like the 1 second lhc units where the beam crashes into the wall)

20:10 <xcamel> the 0.000625 second units..

20:10 <KathrynM> oh yeah

20:11 <KathrynM> darn wrong window

20:11 <xcamel> right next to the brand new baby black hole...

20:11 <KathrynM> what do we need the lhc for.  the place I work is a baby black hole

20:12 <xcamel> I'm soooo not going to comment on that....

20:12 <KathrynM> lol

20:12 * xcamel sticks head right in the sand

20:12 <KathrynM> hmmm...

20:13 <KathrynM> I've got about 6 hours before I run out of work on the other compy and attempt a non-gui install of Fedora on the other laptop

20:13 <KathrynM> shoot me if I ever buy ati again

20:13 <xcamel> got one - embedded on the mb of that xeon machine..

20:13 <xcamel> ati drivers stink

20:14 <KathrynM> if it works (and I don't throw it out the window) it'll be a miracle

20:15 <Rookie_69> Bedroom may be slightly less full, but living room is a lot more crowded... Why doesn't stuff just go away?

20:16 <Rookie_69> Shredded paper takes up a lot more space.

20:21 <xcamel> burns fast too..

20:22 * Rookie_69 tosses lit matches...

20:23 *** Ageless has joined #boinc

20:24 <Ageless> so... that was a laborious thing to do. Not having been on IRC for over a year I have totally forgotten how these things work. :)

20:24 * KathrynM waves hello

20:25 <DerMeister> hi Ageless

20:25 <KathrynM> tricaric, seti is open source

20:25 <wdsmia> *lo Ageless

20:25 <Ageless> hello all

20:25 <KathrynM> and it should suspend correctly (or else you'd hear massive screaming on their forums)

20:26 <Rookie_69> Jordan!\

20:27 <xcamel> 'lo Jord..

20:28 <Ageless> crappy chatzilla, no option to set Enter as the send button.

20:28 <xcamel> party night out on the lunatic fringe...

20:28 <CoderForLife> first time greetings, Ageless

20:28 <xcamel> must be a full moon...

20:28 *** DerMeister has quit IRC

20:28 * CoderForLife was feeling an urge to howl

20:29 * xcamel grabbs the shotgun..

20:29 <CoderForLife> lol

20:29 * Rookie_69 wonders who threw all the small pieces of paper around the shredder.

20:29 * Ageless notices it's still much the same crew around here.

20:29 <Rookie_69> Nope... we're all diffident.

20:29 <Rookie_69> ... different?

20:29 <xcamel> but the names are changed to protect... aw forget it...

20:30 <Ageless> lol

20:30 <CoderForLife> you are diffident Rookie_69

20:30 <Rookie_69> Lol.

20:31 <Ageless> aren't you about 102 by now?

20:31 <xcamel> he won't tell..

20:31 <Rookie_69> Feel like it.

20:32 <CoderForLife> IQ score?

20:32 <Ageless> or are you Junior? ;)

20:33 <xcamel> so hows everything in the north end of nowhere?

20:33 <Ageless> everything's peachy around here.

20:33 <xcamel> any sign of spring yet?

20:34 <Ageless> last I peeked out the window it snowed. brrr.

20:34 *** bia_ has joined #boinc

20:34 <Rookie_69> Don't peek any more.

20:34 <xcamel> still mighty cold here too..

20:34 <Ageless> no, I let the curtains down again.

20:35 <Ageless> all winter without snow and then when Spring is supposed to have started it snows.

20:35 <xcamel> we had a pretty big winter overall..

20:36 <Rookie_69> Little white things drifting past streetlight, but not actually hitting ground.

20:36 <CoderForLife> been pretty exciting for me...

20:37 <Ageless> seeing how everyone is still here, I suppose all of you are still in good health and just glued to your computers, doing nothing else than stare at the screen all day?

20:37 * xcamel has no comment

20:39 <Rookie_69> xcamel is crunching my orbit WU on opteron twice...

20:40 <KathrynM> CoderForLife, remind me how to verify the sha1sum of an iso

20:40 <Ageless> and getting your credit as well?

20:40 <Rookie_69> Probably...

20:41 <Ageless> the status quo has returned

20:41 <Rookie_69>

20:41 <Romulus> Title: Workunit details (at

20:41 * CoderForLife starts chanting - "My mind to your mind..."

20:42 <Ageless> all I got for Orbit are 20 download failures from the time of startup. :(

20:43 <CoderForLife>

20:43 <Romulus> Title: sha1sum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

20:43 * CoderForLife continues - "Your mind to Google..."

20:43 <xcamel> lol Glenn

20:44 <KathrynM> thanks much

20:44 <CoderForLife> np

20:44 <KathrynM> I didn't think of asking wikipedia

20:45 *** hickop has quit IRC

20:45 <xcamel> thanks for reminding me how bad SciFiFriday sucks right now..

20:45 <CoderForLife> that's why "my mind to your mind"

20:45 <Rookie_69> Lost: one mind. If found, please return to...

20:46 <CoderForLife> I'm on the Couch, watching the War Channel

20:46 <xcamel> lost mind... and not looking for it...

20:46 <CoderForLife> I mean History Channel

20:46 <xcamel> watching 'ax men' ??

20:46 <CoderForLife> Learning how to sink a destroyer

20:46 <xcamel> battle 360

20:47 <CoderForLife> that's on later

20:47 <CoderForLife> and Coding

20:48 <Rookie_69> No coding aloud.

20:48 <Rookie_69> (allowed, just not aloud...)

20:48 <Rookie_69> ;-)

20:49 <CoderForLife> I'm actually making excellent progress

20:50 <Ageless> lay mine, wait.

20:51 <xcamel> oh there is a good rimshot line in that one...

20:51 <Ageless> oh damn, forgot to tape the Daily Show Global Edition

20:52 *** NudgeyNR has joined #boinc

20:52 <Ageless> oh well, tomorrow's another 2 chances to forget it

21:02 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

21:02 <infinisoft> primegrid still having server issues...

21:03 <Ageless> yes and with Rytis having fun in Amsterdam for the whole of Easter, it'll be a while.

21:04 <Romulus> MTughan, how is the path.

21:04 <xcamel> orbits uploaded, Glenn

21:05 <Rookie_69> Trying to find closer weather site, but last one was way off.

21:05 <Ageless> not closer weather then.

21:06 <Ageless> I noticed the other day that Google Earth shows radar and clouds these days as well, in the free version. nice touch.

21:06 <xcamel> and the earthquake plugin too..

21:06 *** bia_ has quit IRC

21:07 <Ageless> yes, but with the lack of earthquakes around and no work for me on QCN, I don't use it.

21:10 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

21:16 <xcamel> qcn?

21:16 <Romulus> I guess qcn is down already, xcamel

21:17 <Rookie_69> Quake Catcher Network.

21:17 <xcamel> ah

21:17 <Romulus> Title: QCN Alpha Test (at

21:18 <Rookie_69> ... I guess...

21:19 <Ageless> guessed right. Carl's new project.

21:19 <xcamel> obscure, but cool project..

21:20 <Ageless> also busy with lots of graphical work for AIS's slide show in BOINC's simple view. Challenging thing to show neuron mapping in 290x126 pixels. ;)

21:20 <xcamel> I'm still waiting for realtime severe storm analysis and prediction...

21:22 <Ageless> that weather woman on CNN isn't enough?

21:22 <xcamel> not hardly

21:22 <xcamel> and you mean "GWN"

21:23 <Ageless> I do?

21:23 <xcamel> 'global warming network'

21:23 <xcamel> /sarc

21:23 <Ageless> then I do

21:25 *** tricaric has quit IRC

21:29 *** frost has quit IRC

21:32 <xcamel> sigh... we still need a stats script..

21:33 <Ageless> ok, time for me to go crash into bed. night all.

21:33 <xcamel> laterz, Jord

21:33 <xcamel> good to talk again..

21:34 <Ageless> I'll be back when I want to be bored again. ;)

21:54 <Rookie_69> History is usually good...

21:56 <xcamel> well... laterz for me..
