IRC logs of #boinc for Saturday, 2008-03-22

00:07 *** NudgeyNR has quit IRC

00:18 *** Soul_keeper has joined #boinc

00:18 <Soul_keeper> is the 6 pin power connector on recent video cards mandatory ?

00:23 <bryanUC_> I think so

00:24 <Soul_keeper> what about the 8-pin connector on recent motherboards ?

00:37 <bryanUC_> I hate that connector

01:24 *** Vecnah has joined #boinc

01:34 *** mweltin has joined #boinc

01:42 *** Wabbit98 has joined #boinc

01:44 <Tank_Master> Soul_keeper: yes, if the 6 pic connector is present on the vid card, you must have power supplyed to it

01:44 *** Wabbit67 has joined #boinc

01:44 <Tank_Master> the 8pic connector is backwards compatible with the 4pin

01:45 <Soul_keeper> so all 4 of my 400 to 550 watt psu's are now worthless ...

01:45 <Tank_Master> but the 8pin will give a more stable power supply tot he mobo, thus usualy cna o/c better

01:45 <Tank_Master> can*

01:45 <Tank_Master> not worthless

01:45 <Tank_Master> you can get a molex to 6pin adaptor

01:46 <Tank_Master> but if you dont want them, ill take them

01:47 <Soul_keeper>

01:47 <Romulus> <> (at

01:47 <Soul_keeper>

01:47 <Romulus> <> (at

01:47 <Soul_keeper> can't run that untill i buy a new psu i guess ...

01:48 <Tank_Master> your PS not have the 6pin VGA connector?

01:50 <Soul_keeper> i guess i got one with the 6 pin

01:50 <Soul_keeper>

01:50 <Romulus> <> (at

01:50 <Soul_keeper> that's my situation

01:52 <Soul_keeper> so if i take that thermalright with the 6-pin   then i have to put my 400 watter on my other c2d system,  that means 20-pin for a 24-pin main connector

01:54 <Soul_keeper> i mean  thermaltake

01:56 <Soul_keeper> Tank_Master, you done talking to me now ?

01:59 <Tank_Master> sorry, no

01:59 <Tank_Master> why?

02:00 <Tank_Master> you can usually use a 20 pin adaptor in a 24pin socket

02:01 <Tank_Master> or get a converter

02:01 <Soul_keeper> this is rediculous

02:01 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

02:01 <Soul_keeper> i fully expected my 100 dolar psu's to last untill they didn't have enough power to power a system build

02:02 <Soul_keeper> now i likely gotta pay 200 bucks for a psu

02:02 <Tank_Master> well, its more likely that the PS will give out first

02:02 <Soul_keeper>

02:02 <Romulus> <> (at

02:02 <Tank_Master> with CPUs and motherboards becomming more efficent

02:02 <Tank_Master> its just the highend vid cards that keep drawing more power

02:03 <Tank_Master> what do you need 850 watts for?

02:03 <Tank_Master> sli 9800x2?

02:04 <Soul_keeper> because anything less don't have all the cool connectors

02:04 <Tank_Master> ahh

02:04 <Soul_keeper> i want 8 6 and 4 pin

02:04 <Soul_keeper> and the modular removeable cables is nice

02:04 <Tank_Master> the motherboards either have n 8 or a 4

02:04 <Tank_Master> not both

02:05 <efc> I think it will add on your power bill to have a much bigger PSU than you need? They may not be very efficient in that part of their operating range

02:05 <Tank_Master> no

02:05 <Tank_Master> all PS will only consume as much power as the system demands

02:05 <Soul_keeper> efc,  no it'll just use what the system drawls

02:05 <efc> ... they have a non-100% efficiency, and it is not constant over the range

02:06 <Tank_Master> and is gineral the same efficency conversion down to around 25-30%

02:06 <Tank_Master> load

02:06 <Soul_keeper>        here's a brand new model for 100 bucks

02:06 <Romulus> <> (at

02:06 <Tank_Master> most PS are ~75%-80% AC to DC conversion

02:06 <Soul_keeper> 650 would be plenty and a worthy upgrade to my 550

02:07 <Tank_Master> mine is a 680w ;)

02:07 <Soul_keeper> the ones i'm looking at have a 85% efficiency rate

02:07 *** J-23 has joined #boinc

02:07 <Soul_keeper>

02:07 <Tank_Master> has 2 6pin VGA connectors ;)

02:07 <Romulus> Title: 80 Plus PSU - List (at

02:07 <Soul_keeper> who makes your psu ?

02:07 <Tank_Master> thermaltake

02:08 <Soul_keeper> antec has just always been my favorite psu maker, kinda don't wanna change

02:08 <Tank_Master> mine has been thermaltake

02:08 <Tank_Master> same with heatsinks

02:08 <Soul_keeper> i got this thermaltake one from a local shop last year cause i was in a bind, and they didn't have antec

02:08 <Tank_Master> but nothing wrong with antech

02:08 <Soul_keeper> thermalright is my favorite heatsink company

02:09 <Tank_Master> antec and thermaltake are just about all I will consider

02:10 <efc> Nice graph:

02:10 <Romulus> <> (at

02:11 <Soul_keeper> that last PSU i linked from newegg don't say if it has 6-pin connectors or not

02:20 * KathrynM is back (gone 05:17:58)

02:20 <Tank_Master> wb

02:20 *** nickuwo1 has quit IRC

02:21 <KathrynM> sorta back

02:21 <KathrynM> need to see if someone on #fedora can help me

02:21 <Tank_Master> then why are you here?

02:21 <Tank_Master> ;)

02:21 <Romulus> what did you see the use of the app dir, but I need to tuck you in? not aussie too?

02:21 <KathrynM> making trouble ;)

02:22 <Tank_Master> thought so

02:22 * KathrynM has no idea how to install linux w/o a gui

02:22 * Wabbit67 can't install linux period

02:23 <Soul_keeper> it's easy

02:23 <Tank_Master> who would want a linux period?

02:24 <Soul_keeper> i havn't used windows since like 2003

02:24 <Tank_Master> you dont know what your missing then

02:24 <Tank_Master> ;)

02:24 <Soul_keeper> lol

02:24 <Soul_keeper> constant reboots, and required upgrades ?

02:24 <Tank_Master> last updates didnt require an update

02:25 <Tank_Master> reboot*

02:25 <Tank_Master> and what were you rebooting for other than updates anyway?

02:25 <Wabbit67> power outages

02:25 <Soul_keeper> i havn't been required to update anything or reboot in 5yrs with linux ...

02:25 <Tank_Master> well, your not requiered to update windows either

02:26 <Tank_Master> doesnt meen you shouldnt

02:26 <mweltin> recomended though

02:26 <KathrynM> mweltin!

02:26 <Tank_Master> same with linux

02:26 <mweltin> KathrynM!

02:26 <Tank_Master> updates are recommended

02:26 <Soul_keeper> well i no longer have to call MS and spend an hour on the phone trying to get their voice recognition to recognize my 60 or so digits to ensure that i do indeed own windows ...

02:26 <KathrynM> trying to install Fedora without a GUI

02:27 <mweltin> I went diving with a korean exectutive today.  He dropped way too much money and chartered a boat that I was invited on.  Good times.

02:27 <Tank_Master> I have never need to call them

02:27 <Romulus> you realize electrolysis is like an internet IDE

02:27 <KathrynM> nice

02:27 <Wabbit67> mw you better give us a discount if we ever make it to your island

02:27 <mweltin> KathrynM, why not slackware?

02:27 <Tank_Master> sounds fun, mweltin

02:27 <mweltin> we are going out again tomorrow.

02:28 <KathrynM> cause I'm using Fedora on my other laptop and I"m no adventerous to figure out a new distro

02:29 <mweltin> that guy has some nice equipement too.  Video and still shot cameras with beautiful underwater housings.

02:29 <mweltin> so why not the GUI KathrynM

02:29 <KathrynM> nice

02:29 <KathrynM> stupid ati graphics

02:29 <mweltin> nice guy too.

02:29 <mweltin> hahaahah

02:29 <KathrynM> yeah yeah yeah

02:29 <KathrynM> laugh all you want

02:29 <Tank_Master> yes, ATI is stupid

02:29 <mweltin> in the end you will be happy with them (ati that is)

02:29 <KathrynM> here's the directions I got

02:29 <KathrynM> I then had to download the ATI driver for the X1250 from the ATI site on another machine, move it from a USB flash drive to the hard drive and run it from the command line, then I ran aticonfig --resolution=0,1280x800 to create an xorg.conf, then [b]startx[b] to start the GUI.

02:29 <Tank_Master> I never have

02:30 <zombie67> is the issue ATI?  or the distro ability to deal with ati?

02:30 <KathrynM> I think I'll be find once i figure out how to get that installer from the flash drive to the hard drive

02:30 <Tank_Master> its always ATI

02:30 <mweltin> at least there were drivers.  I have a radeon with a driver some guy wrote.

02:30 <KathrynM> ouch

02:30 <Tank_Master> even on windows distros they dont work quite right

02:30 <KathrynM> so since the folks at #fedora aren't being very helpful

02:31 <KathrynM> mweltin, how do I mount a usb drive from the cli?

02:31 <mweltin> depends a little

02:31 <Tank_Master> ahh, the joys of unix

02:31 <zombie67> man mount

02:31 <mweltin> but mount -t ext2 /dev/sda1 /mnt

02:32 <mweltin> finding the right device name is the trick.

02:32 <KathrynM> oh that makes my head hurt

02:32 <zombie67> with ubuntu, flash drives mount utomatically when inserted

02:33 <Soul_keeper> use  lsusb  to make sure the device was indeed detected, check you  dmesg |more   to see what device name it was assigned

02:33 <mweltin> I used this just the other day for help.

02:33 <Romulus> <> (at

02:33 <mweltin> trouble with auto-mount is you don't get to pick the file system.

02:33 <mweltin> that is why I dont' use it.

02:34 <mweltin> I user NTFS, Reiser, and ext2, and what does mac use now?

02:35 <zombie67> um

02:35 *** Wabbit has joined #boinc

02:35 *** Wabbit is now known as Wabbit98

02:36 <zombie67> Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

02:36 <zombie67> leopard has some new stuff available, but not yet default

02:36 <mweltin> my GF got a new iBook a few weeks ago, not sure what it has.

02:37 <Tank_Master> Ive tryed out using exFAT on my flash drives

02:37 <mweltin> nice box though.

02:37 <Tank_Master> didnt notice much improvement in speed

02:37 <mweltin> exFAT ?

02:37 <Tank_Master> new - needs vista SP1 or server 2008 to support it

02:37 <zombie67> not a new iBook.  no such thing since intel

02:37 <Tank_Master> is a file system spicifily for removable flash

02:38 <zombie67> ooh!  what about the old iBook?!  new toy for you

02:38 <mweltin> macbook I can't keep those stupid (over priced) names straight.

02:38 <Tank_Master> im sure it wont be long before linus supports it (if it dosent already)

02:38 <mweltin> what makes it special?

02:38 <Tank_Master> better i/o throughput

02:39 <Tank_Master> better support for large storage devices

02:39 <mweltin> adn if it needs vista I'm not gonna run that for another year at least, maybe never.

02:39 <Romulus> then that was determined to be sure.

02:39 <zombie67> only the MacBook Pro is overpriced.  the MacBook is less expensive than competition

02:39 <Tank_Master> and its geard for flash, so less overhead when used on a flash device

02:39 <mweltin> better than, compaired to what VFAT?

02:39 <Tank_Master>

02:39 <Romulus> Title: exFAT - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

02:40 <Tank_Master> better than FAT, or vFAT, yes

02:40 <zombie67> the new/hot FS startes with X or Z....

02:41 <zombie67> xen...zan...something like that

02:41 <Tank_Master> not sure I have heard of it

02:41 <mweltin> well when tank says "better" I'm assuming he is reading some MS article, or at least one funded by them.  Better is relative to something else.

02:41 <KathrynM> woo hoo

02:41 <zombie67> ZFS!

02:42 <KathrynM> got it mounted and copied the driver to ~

02:42 <mweltin> what was the device name?

02:42 <Tank_Master>

02:42 <Romulus> Title: ZFS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

02:42 <Tank_Master> by better, I mean its faster and supports larger drives

02:43 * KathrynM crosses fingers

02:43 <KathrynM> it's installing the driver

02:44 <mweltin> faster and larger than what?  An old file system from the 60's?

02:44 <mweltin> or say ext3

02:44 <Tank_Master> yes, amasing how long FAT has been around

02:45 <Tank_Master> yes its still used because its bout the only FS all OSs can read n right to

02:46 <KathrynM> yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

02:46 <KathrynM> I've got a gui

02:46 <mweltin> nice, now open a terminal and get some work done.

02:46 <KathrynM> lol

02:46 <KathrynM> let me actually install it to the hd first

02:57 <Wabbit98> is there a way to save a video from youtube onto my computer so I can upload it onto another site?

03:00 <Tank_Master> yes

03:00 <Wabbit98> can you tell me how?

03:00 <Tank_Master> with IE, there is an add-on called IE7pro

03:00 * Wabbit98 uses Mozilla

03:01 <Tank_Master> itll allow you to download youtoube and google vidieo

03:02 <Wabbit98> how about if I am not using IE

03:02 *** mw_away is now known as mweltin

03:02 *** efc has quit IRC

03:03 <KathrynM>

03:04 <Romulus> <> (at

03:04 <KathrynM> take a look at that

03:04 <KathrynM> might be helpful

03:07 <mweltin> that uses

03:07 <Wabbit98> well that didn't work

03:08 <mweltin> did you read the full page.

03:08 <mweltin> there are some strange instructions.

03:08 <mweltin> this site may help as a stop gap measure.

05:56 * CoderForLife moans in response

05:58 <CoderForLife> why does morning come so early?

05:58 <KathrynM> we should outlaw mornings

05:59 <CoderForLife> where do I sign up?

05:59 <KathrynM> over there ---------->

05:59 * CoderForLife runs that way

06:00 <KathrynM> <---------- oh waitk, sorry, it's over there

06:00 * KathrynM wishes these updates would download faster

06:00 * CoderForLife arrives from that way <---------------

06:00 <KathrynM> i've been at it for 2.5 hours

06:00 <CoderForLife> are you giving me the run-around?

06:00 <KathrynM> nah

06:00 <KathrynM> never

06:01 <CoderForLife> ah OK

06:04 <KathrynM> dinner has been successfully compiled :)

06:06 <CoderForLife> then it's done

06:06 <CoderForLife> ship it

06:07 <KathrynM> doing that right now :)

06:07 <KathrynM> it's a very good build

06:09 <CoderForLife> it's not spam, is it?

06:09 <KathrynM> nope

06:10 <CoderForLife> good

06:10 <KathrynM> shrimp, spinach, onions and carrots all sauteed together and then mixed with couscous

06:10 <KathrynM> but spam (the food variety) is very popular in korea

06:10 <CoderForLife> I liked Spam growing up, but don't have much use for it now

06:11 * CoderForLife looks for a free, redistributable, fast, command-line-driven unzip utility

06:11 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

06:15 <DerMeister> 7zip?

06:15 <CoderForLife> just downloaded PKWARE and PicoZip to try

06:17 <CoderForLife> yeah - I'll look at 7-zip also - thanks DerMeister

06:18 <DerMeister> I has a really good compression ratio, too. Although it may be slow when compressing and may require a lot of ram then... But unzipping should be quite fast and 7zip can work with a lot of different formats... and it should be free :)

06:20 <CoderForLife> yup - my interest is unzipping under control of another program that wants to look at things in zip archives (supporting RAR, ARC, etc would be a bonus)

06:20 <CoderForLife> got 3 candidates to look at during breakfast

06:21 <CoderForLife> now...

06:21 <CoderForLife> breakfast!

06:21 <CoderForLife> brb

06:27 <CoderForLife> b w/b

06:28 <KathrynM> finally.  all downloaded.

06:28 * KathrynM wonders how many hours to install


06:29 <KathrynM> yum just barfed on me

06:30 <CoderForLife> now you'll have to "yum clean" it up

06:30 <KathrynM> what the hell do I do now?

06:31 <KathrynM> it's all koffice stuff

06:31 <KathrynM> I don't use koffice (it sucks)

06:31 <KathrynM> can I just uninstall it?

06:31 <CoderForLife> but it starts with K....

06:31 <KathrynM> true

06:31 * KathrynM bangs head on desk

06:32 <DerMeister> yum's a strange tool... I don't like it.

06:32 <KathrynM> oh well.  I'll see if it'll let me get rid of it :)

06:32 <CoderForLife> yum remove

06:32 <KathrynM> the worst thing that happens is I jump through the hoops and reinstall

06:32 * CoderForLife gets out his set of flaming hoops

06:33 * CoderForLife starts a large bonfire

06:33 <CoderForLife> did you want your hoops stationary, or being juggled?

06:33 <KathrynM> so much fun not to have x

06:34 <CoderForLife> shhh - I am really a Linux command line guy

06:35 <CoderForLife> I guess I'm going to do the Saturday morning errands

06:35 <CoderForLife> I'll bbl

06:35 <DerMeister> One of my linux boxes has just two cables plugged in... One for power and one for network... :)

06:36 <DerMeister> No need for X on this one :)

06:36 <CoderForLife> eggzackly

06:36 <CoderForLife> I'm off

06:36 * CoderForLife waves a command line reference sheet

06:37 <KathrynM> I know just enough CLI stuff to be dangerous.

06:39 <KathrynM> woot.  uninstalling koffice worked

06:39 <KathrynM> now all the updates are installing

07:19 <KathrynM> now that I have boinc running in 64 bit fedora, what projects?

08:40 <KathrynM> I'm too tired.

08:40 <KathrynM> I've been working on installing Fedora since 2 this afternoon.

09:28 <CoderForLife> but... we bought no bunnies

09:28 <Ageless> yes, I saw the big egg in London (on tv). Costs 650 pounds... or weight it. either way...

09:32 <Ageless> quick, report your primegrids now the server is up

09:33 <Ageless> oh, damn, can't.

09:33 <Ageless> server can't open database

09:33 <xcamel> got to get triaric to generate some more work...

09:53 <xcamel> I gave up on cdpn

09:53 <Romulus> leave off the bat? the level of fragmentation if getting disconcerting.

09:53 <KathrynM> I'm heading for bed.

09:53 <DerMeister> hmmm... one of my machines ran just out of work... It's attached to primgerid (but doing only primegen), lhc, depspid and simap... all out of work there -.-

17:06 <KathrynM> Not too far from it.

17:06 <KathrynM> My guinea pig needed water.  The clunking of the little ball in the tube of her water bottle woke me up.

17:06 <Iphorita> Perfect - my english skills are zombie-like

17:07 <Iphorita> Poor being

17:07 <CoderForLife> all teachers are afflicted with some levels of zombieism

17:07 <CoderForLife> a job requirement

17:07 <KathrynM> Is that why I want to claw my eyes out on a regular basis?

17:07 <nickuwo1> your english sounds pretty good to me :)

17:07 <CoderForLife> that's one of the mild symptoms

17:07 <Iphorita> That's cute nickuwol

17:08 <KathrynM> I'm still trying to figure out how a student got "horizontality" in a diary entry.

17:08 *** mweltin has joined #boinc

17:08 <Iphorita> But I basically suck at grammar

17:08 <Rookie_69> Mais, Je ne parle pas Francais.

17:08 <KathrynM> I didn't even know horizontality was a word.

17:08 <KathrynM> mweltin!

17:08 <mweltin> it is now

17:08 <Iphorita> Rooki_69 :-)

17:08 <KathrynM> ok.  I'm not here.

17:08 <nickuwo1> yes, nobody likes grammar

17:08 <mweltin> I htink I just had a minor brain storm, seem obvious now that I thought about it.

17:08 <KathrynM> I'm going back to bed.

17:09 <mweltin> night

17:09 <KathrynM> so that's the thunder I've been hearing ;)

18:20 <TheGasGiant> not sure yet...calling the animal hospital soon

18:20 <Ageless> what happened to it?

18:20 <mweltin> sorry to hear about your cat TheGasGiant

18:20 <TheGasGiant> not sure...we were away for easter and we put him in a catery we've used before

18:21 <TheGasGiant> and they called us yesterday saying he had poo'd himself and wsa non responsive

18:21 <mweltin> there was a database update.

18:21 <TheGasGiant> thanks mweltin

18:22 <mweltin> be grateful for vets.  We don't have a qualified vet on this island and its always very stressful when my dog gets sick.

18:23 <Ageless> perhaps the change of food and surroundings? Selena here goes into a state when you just try to carry her out of the flat.

18:24 <TheGasGiant> yeah...the only 'problem' with the animal hospital is that it's not manned 24hrs a day

18:24 <TheGasGiant>'s a possibility, but they've identified a neurological problem as well

18:25 <Ageless> poisonous mouse ;)

18:26 <TheGasGiant> hehehe...

18:26 <TheGasGiant> he's got diabetes as maybe he's got some 'other' problems as organ failure

18:27 <TheGasGiant> well anyway....we'll know more in an hr or so

18:29 <Ageless> good luck. Hope you don't have to put him to sleep so before Easter.

18:29 <TheGasGiant> it's easter Sunday here and my wifes b' she's real happy....

18:30 <Ageless> who will now sleep on her feet? you?

18:31 <TheGasGiant> lol....i grovel at her feet now, so it's just a small change ;)

18:31 <mweltin> the server status page is gone?

18:31 <mweltin> I HATE doing boinc upgrades.

18:32 <Ageless> then just don't do boinc upgrades. wait a year, as then it **may** be stable ;)

18:32 <mweltin> LOL

18:33 <TheGasGiant> just like LHC

18:33 <desti> is down?

18:34 <mweltin> all my customizations are gone arrrrghhhhhhhh,  mmmm maby I got lucky and have them in svn somewhere.

18:35 <Ageless> oh well, at least that gives you the oportunity to change the Accpet to Accept this time around. Seriously though, don't you make backups?

18:36 <Tank_Master> mw!

18:36 <mweltin> I back up the big stuff, things like the apps themselves.  I'm tripping over myself with backsup that, but the boinc proejct stuff nto always.

18:40 <mweltin> spelling error corrected

18:41 <Ageless> lol

18:47 <Tank_Master> sea slugs

18:47 <nickuwo1> I envy you, I haven't dived in a year or two

18:47 <mweltin> no, we missed Fagatele bay yesterday and dove a sea mount outside of the harbor.

18:48 <mweltin> today is the real dive

18:48 <Romulus> well, my mod of Eric's pic of his spreadsheet scanning code

18:48 <Tank_Master> he needs to mow the sea grass

18:48 <mweltin> yes you do, I get to go twice a week.  Not always in as nice a place as fagatele baythough.

18:50 <Ageless> but but but... you can't. You have to spend every minute you're not sleeping on perfecting TSP.

18:51 <Tank_Master> heh

18:51 <Ageless> tweak it, break it, repair it, be there when people have problems.

18:51 *** nickuwo1 is now known as nickuwo

18:51 <Tank_Master> optimize it

18:51 <Ageless> or so some people think....

18:51 <Tank_Master> and reuduse credit on it to compensate for the optimizeing..

18:51 <mweltin> LOL

18:51 <Ageless> personal time? not when you're a project admin!

18:52 <Tank_Master> LOL

18:52 *** xcamel has quit IRC

18:53 <Ageless> have an alarm go off next to your bed when someone posts on the forums... ugh. nevr mind me, I'm in a giggly mood. ;)

18:53 *** xcamel has joined #boinc

18:53 <mweltin> are you an admin Ageless ?

18:54 <Ageless> luckily not, no. I only help poor souls all over the place.

18:54 <Tank_Master> lol

18:55 <mweltin> many thanks anyway.  It's just you seemed to know what it is like.  Your description was right on.

18:55 <Ageless> I get around, Markus.

18:56 <xcamel> hmmm.... hate that.

18:56 <Ageless> and see a lot of complaints from people. Especially the past days on Cosmo, where people really expect that the admins are available all the time. easter? Pah! They need to be there!

18:57 <Tank_Master> so true

18:57 <mweltin> I think I'm given a little slack cause its just me and my project is not as popular as Cosmo.

18:58 <Tank_Master> and you have me to give generic responces

18:58 <Tank_Master> "that is a knowen isse and is being worked on"

18:58 <Ageless> oh... we need to change that then.

18:58 <mweltin> LOL that was classic

18:58 <Tank_Master> ;)

18:58 <mweltin> it still makes me laugh

18:59 <xcamel> just because they have no life, doesn't mean the admins don't

19:00 <Ageless> you gave me credit a while back over helping you with something (forgot what it was exactly, probably something insignificant). It's always nice to get credit (on the front page). :)

19:01 <mweltin> more spelling errors I have a lot of those.  Can't spell my way out of paper bag, hence I'm a programmer.

19:02 <nickuwo> sorry guys, quick question, if you add an updated version of some app, say from 1.1 to 1.2, but leave the old one, will clients re-download the new app asap, or is there some sort of trigger?

19:03 *** chup has quit IRC

19:03 *** chup has joined #boinc

19:04 <xcamel> who admins cosmo?

19:04 <Ageless> afaik the new app will download at the next request for work.

19:05 <Ageless> Scott Kruger

19:05 <Ageless> and Ben Wandelt

19:05 <xcamel> ah..

19:05 <nickuwo> sweet thx

19:05 <xcamel> I'd keep running it but it takes down everything when one wu crashes..

19:06 <Ageless> I still haven't had a crash of Cosmo. knocks wood. I did stop it during the change from camb 2.05 through to 2.12 ;)

19:09 <xcamel> windows?

19:09 <Ageless> yes, 2000 SP4, single CPU as well.

19:10 <Tank_Master> old

19:11 <Ageless> but sturdy. And I can still play all the games I want on it. :)

19:11 <mweltin> I gotta get ready.

19:11 <mweltin> alter guys

19:11 <mweltin> thanks for the tips.

19:11 *** mweltin has quit IRC

19:11 <Ageless> later Markus. Have fun. and watch out for the bends

19:12 <xcamel> lol

19:12 <Ageless> typing too slowly ;)

19:14 <xcamel> it happens..

19:18 <Tank_Master> what took you so long?

19:18 <Tank_Master> he ghave you an entire second to type!

19:18 <Ageless> Chatzilla wasn't in focus.

19:28 <xcamel> chatzilla is a strange client..

19:34 * KathrynM is back (gone 09:40:15)

19:34 <Ageless> true, but I didn't want to install mIRC yesterday. It works, even though you have to do everything by hand

19:34 <KathrynM> who ordered the rain?

19:35 <Ageless> I sent you some of our snow. Can't help it it turned into something else

19:35 <xcamel> did you need it?

19:35 <KathrynM> rain is fine.  but not when I have to walk to the grocery store

19:35 <KathrynM> I knew I should have done that yesterday instead of fighting with Fedora.

19:36 <Ageless> can't you shop online and have it delivered?

19:36 <KathrynM> dunno

19:37 <KathrynM> I was going to go to the Old Downtown area today.

19:37 <KathrynM> But not in the rain.

19:37 <KathrynM> yo Ageless, do me a favor and go answer this guy

19:37 <Romulus> <$> (at

19:37 <Ageless> ever heard of an umbrella (and not the Ryhana song ;))

19:37 <KathrynM> I can't string together a coherent thought

19:38 <Ageless> you mean that person with his linux problem? I dunno that one, have looked into it already and my lack of Linux knowledge is in my way.

19:38 <Ageless> I thought of waiting for Nicolas to do it. ;)

19:39 <KathrynM> it's the whole ubuntu build thing

19:39 <xcamel> He can upgrade the lib (not too hard)

19:39 <xcamel> if he needs graphics, then he needs the ubuntu version (which will run on suse)

19:40 <xcamel> he can even make a fake symlink of to

19:40 <Ageless> perhaps a refreshing walk in the rain will clear your thoughts.

19:40 <xcamel> which would also work

20:36 *** chup has joined #boinc

20:38 <MTughan> Hmm, no mweltin... Oh well, I'll catch him later.

20:40 <xcamel> 'lo Mike

20:40 <MTughan> 'lo Jay

20:40 <xcamel> spare time challenge for you...

20:40 <xcamel> we used to have a 'stats' function (plugin) for the bot...

20:41 <MTughan> Uh huh.

20:41 <MTughan> And... ?

20:41 <xcamel> basically it would pull the 'stats on your cell' feed using &stats [project] [user]

20:41 <xcamel> any interest?

20:42 <MTughan> Doesn't sound too hard.

20:42 <MTughan> The only thing is that it would have to have a lookup of Project URLs.

20:43 <MTughan> &list lookup

20:43 <Romulus> MTughan: add, airport, areacode, boincerr, deepthought, httpcode, port, remove, rfc, search, stateinfo, and zipcode

20:43 <xcamel> dunno if the 'boinc combined' has a simple txt feed anywhere for just &stats [user]

20:43 <MTughan> I could use that though.

20:43 <MTughan> Oh, off BOINCStats...

20:43 <xcamel> only for the combined

20:44 <xcamel> otherwise you end up with a huge database stored locally

20:44 <MTughan> Doesn't seem that there is an RSS feed for stats off of BS's site...

20:44 <MTughan> Nvm, I see it.

20:44 <xcamel> some projects list the CPID, and the associated stats

20:45 <xcamel> trick is to allow for 'no channel flood'

20:45 <xcamel> like the weather slpit to '&more'

20:45 <Romulus> ready:1 nwu_results: 100 max_wu_results: 100 then 100 absent things

20:45 <MTughan> I think that's done by the bot automatically.

20:46 <MTughan> As for BS stats, this seems to be the best I can get.

20:46 <xcamel> think about it, or experiment a little

20:46 <Romulus> <> (at

20:46 <MTughan> The "c" stats are total credit. I think the "r"'s are recent, but I'm not sure how that works.

20:46 <MTughan> Nvm, "r"'s are world positions.

20:47 <xcamel> r for 'rac'

20:47 <xcamel> all integer

20:47 <MTughan> No, the r stats are RAC.

20:47 <xcamel> that's what I said

20:47 <MTughan> I have an RAC of 667.679. The r there is 39556.

20:48 <xcamel> hmmm..

20:48 <MTughan> Sorry, the r stats are not RAC.

20:48 <xcamel> you'll have to hunt around a bit..

20:48 <MTughan> 39556 is my current world position though.

20:48 <xcamel> name ID to user id could be tough

20:49 <MTughan> Yeah.

20:49 <MTughan> I would either just go project by project, or use a different stats site.

20:50 <MTughan> If I did. I don't have much time at the moment, with an English book log, a Philosophy biography, and an English movie all due the week after I get back from March Break.

20:51 <MTughan> I finished off the movie today, I have a good start on the book log, but nothing's been done on the biography. Yet.

20:51 <xcamel> school work first..

20:51 <MTughan> lol, this seems so pitiful... "Contribution to BOINC total credit: 0.00043%"

20:51 <MTughan> 4.3 thousandths of a percent. xD

20:52 <MTughan> I could have a nice day with credits tomorrow though... A possibility of ~1100 credits from E@H.

20:53 <wdsmia>

20:53 <MTughan> Plus another 300 from Sudoku, and 600 that I already have today.

20:53 <Romulus> ie. one second per second?

20:53 <wdsmia> nope

20:54 <wdsmia> :P

20:54 <MTughan> That's good. I wasn't planning on doing it.

20:56 <xcamel> it would be nice to get a stats sucker working

20:56 <xcamel> but... off with me for now...

20:56 <xcamel> laterz, and have a nice Easter..

20:56 <wdsmia> cya jay

20:57 <MTughan> Bye.

20:57 <MTughan> I'll see what I can do when I have the time, K?
