00:00 <Romulus>

00:06 <PovAddict> zombie67: 40 mins left for one SETI!

00:07 <zombie67> sweet

00:07 <zombie67> Therefore I see the issue of credit as being largely political for a small group and not really important to the whole overall.

00:07 <zombie67> Perhaps, but that "small group" just happens to include David Anderson.

00:07 <zombie67> hah!

00:07 <zombie67> ha;f way now

00:07 <PovAddict> I think I'll go to sleep

00:07 <MTughan> Night.

00:07 <PovAddict> btw, it's amazing how dirty the internet is

00:08 <PovAddict> there's already loads of iPhone-optimized porn websites

00:08 <MTughan> ...

00:08 <zombie67> in the morning, you will be able to post...assuming your wingmen help out

00:08 <Romulus> is back (gone 01:21:40)

00:08 <PovAddict>

00:08 <Romulus> Title: Nopaste - No description (at

00:09 <MTughan> You posted it as C++.

00:09 <zombie67> hehe

00:09 <zombie67> spank that!

00:12 <zombie67> I have come to the opinion that credits are meaningful only within a project.

00:13 <zombie67> the only way to compare projects is something like Formula BOINC

00:13 <PovAddict> see posts 730494 and 730689 for agreement with that

00:13 <PovAddict> yes I actually took note of interesting post IDs to reply later :)

00:13 <zombie67> and that opens up cross project comparison to projects outside BOINC

00:14 <zombie67> well, this my opinion is not due to that thread

00:14 <PovAddict> I know

00:15 <zombie67> ever since discovering FB, and wrapping my head around it a few months ago, that is what got me there

00:15 <PovAddict> sleep ->

00:16 <zombie67> In addition to that, I feel the FB method is beneficial to DC

00:16 <zombie67> it pushes resources to smaller projects

00:16 <zombie67> gn

00:16 <zombie67> sleep well

00:56 <Romulus> not like there is one, only if it succesfully upladed task

00:56 <zombie67> hah!

00:57 <zombie67> I have already been told to be prepared!  China is shutting down factories in a 90 mile radius.  So if my factories have any components sourced there, stock up now!

01:03 *** Wabbit98 has joined #boinc

01:05 <efc> Make the pollution appear all nice and clean for the big hypocrit convention?

01:05 <zombie67> yep

01:05 *** Wabbit67 has joined #boinc

01:05 <zombie67> oh yeah, and no news/youtube/google of the crap going on in tibet

01:06 <Wabbit67> no surprise there

01:06 <Wabbit67> google is bowing to its new master now

01:07 <zombie67> the money is always the master, regardless of country

01:53 <zombie67> hehe

01:55 <zombie67> kinda "well, duh!" article

01:55 <Soul_keeper> nice

01:55 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:55 <Tank_Master> :)

01:55 *** Wabbit67 has quit IRC

01:55 <zombie67> just look at any weather forecast on the west coast

01:56 <zombie67> and weather travels (in general) west to east.

01:56 <Tank_Master> and yet we get blamed for polition causeing global warming...

01:57 <Tank_Master> yet china is "a poor developing nation" so same rules dont apply

01:58 * efc thinks the Olympics is a bunch of sanctimonius $(#$#

01:58 <zombie67> it's all about pollution per dollar earned.  we are just too damn "rich".

01:58 <zombie67> we should "know better"

01:58 <zombie67> Feel the guit!

01:59 <zombie67> guilt

02:00 <zombie67> it is okay for 3rd world countries to pollute far worse, per head, as they are poor.

02:01 <zombie67> feel the burn!

02:01 <Tank_Master> lol

02:02 * FreeLarry58 eyeballs old flame thrower and adjust sighting mechanism -- oooo zombie67

02:02 * FreeLarry58 do you want your wish

02:02 <FreeLarry58> ;0

02:03 <FreeLarry58> ouch forgot the tip gets hot

02:03 <Tank_Master> those trees are blocking my view of the olimpics

02:03 <Tank_Master> ill burn them down

02:03 * efc played with a forestry flamethrower, fun!

02:03 <FreeLarry58> and drive the price of lumber for stands up

02:03 <zombie67> the fatality rate for flame thrower users was HIGH.  Many were not due to enemy fire...

02:03 <efc> It squirts 50/50 gas/diesel

02:03 <FreeLarry58> lol true

02:04 <Romulus> yeah yeah rommie, I know why it uses faster algorithms than the average

02:04 <Tank_Master> you shoot the tank, not the numnut

02:04 <zombie67> wanna burn?  Napalm is awesome stuff

02:04 <efc> "Sands of Iwo Jima" had some of that

02:04 <Tank_Master> hehehe

02:04 <FreeLarry58> just mix a little sugar and styrofoam in

02:04 <efc> They march flamethrower dudes one at a time up to machine gun nests

02:04 <zombie67> try to make it STOP burning...

02:05 <efc> With predictable results. Until John Wayne did it, they didn't shoot him for some reason.

02:05 <zombie67> everyone says, "save the trees!".

02:05 <zombie67> trees are just a tall lawn

02:05 <zombie67> they grow back

02:05 <Tank_Master> I say: "uuoo! Money!

02:05 <zombie67> we need the clippings

02:05 <FreeLarry58> just a lot slower

02:06 <zombie67> depends on the type of tree

02:06 <FreeLarry58> wood holds the carbon and other pollution well till burned or allowed to decompose

02:06 <zombie67> new forrests are just tall lawn.

02:07 <zombie67> so does watter

02:07 <FreeLarry58> they need thinning not clearcut is all

02:07 <efc> &math convert 114 mm to inches

02:07 <Romulus> efc: 4.48818897638

02:07 <zombie67> trees can be crops

02:07 <zombie67> tsll corn

02:07 <zombie67> tall

02:08 <FreeLarry58> around here they finding that out too well - lots of increase in oxygen depletion in areas during year and massive fish die off

02:08 <Tank_Master> but they can burn if its started by lightning, cus thats natural

02:08 * FreeLarry58 bad memories about tall corn - two summers of detasseling work when young

02:08 <zombie67> nothing "crop rotation" hasn't already told

02:09 <efc> Basically if you stick 10 billion people on the planet, something has to give

02:09 <Tank_Master> Ill never budge

02:09 <FreeLarry58> yeah one crop takes out and a different one puts back in

06:37 <CoderForLife> Dung Is Our Friend?

06:37 <KathrynM> something like that

06:38 <CoderForLife> a good perspective - should help them get through life

06:38 <KathrynM> It's a wonder I have any sanity left

07:18 * CoderForLife watches the tree behind his house fall down the hill in very slo-mo

07:24 * KathrynM works on her todo list for the weekend

07:50 * CoderForLife works on his scanner code - Korean spreadsheets seem to be the most difficult

07:56 <KathrynM> the folks at work finally got sick on the one computer and sent it in to be wiped and have xp reinstalled.  I guess all print jobs are routed through that and it was so bad that trying to print hung that computer plus the computer that was sending the job.  HOpefully they'll manage to not screw up the computer this time.

07:56 <KathrynM> and hopefully this time they'll keep the av up to date

08:13 <CoderForLife> you hope a lot

08:14 <KathrynM> yeah.  I know.  Not everyone is as OCD about computers as I am :)

08:19 <CoderForLife> over-clocked?

08:19 <KathrynM> lol

08:22 * KathrynM starts the edubuntu download

08:23 <KathrynM> I'm gonna zap my Ubuntu partition and stick Edubuntu on it so I can let my kids use it.

09:03 <KathrynM> ok, dumb question...

09:03 <KathrynM> I have the edubuntu iso downloaded

09:03 <KathrynM> but I don't have any blank CDs.  Can I burn it to a DVD?

09:04 <PovAddict> CD iso on a DVD?

09:04 <KathrynM> ok, maybe not then ;)

09:04 <KathrynM> I'll pick up a pack of cds tomorrow

09:04 <PovAddict> I think you can, but I'm not too sure

09:05 <PovAddict> I wanted to ask somebody else before saying yes, to save you a wasted DVD

09:05 <PovAddict> but he hasn't tried it before either :)

09:05 <desti> you can "burn" it on an usb stick too

09:06 <PovAddict> really?

09:06 <KathrynM> yeah, but I don't know if I can book from a USB stick

14:52 <old> I've been out of it for a while now,darn depreson

14:52 <FreeLarry58> had one board burn up so upgraded machine to quad - that was right after i put together an new dually

14:53 <FreeLarry58> can understand that - normally a little depressed here most days but still try to gt along

14:53 <Romulus> but I have no idea if it's on the other...

14:53 <old> hate smoke checking :(

14:54 <FreeLarry58> lol not smoke check = machine had ran for two years - the room got shut up while granddaughter was here and not opened till i got home that night so overheated due to heat buildup in room

14:55 <old> Thats no good need more fans ?

14:55 <FreeLarry58> room got in to high 90's or over 100 about blew me over when i opend it

14:56 <FreeLarry58> prescott core so didn't like it much

14:56 <old> darn thts cooking

14:56 <FreeLarry58> 7 machcines in this room

14:56 <hawmps> my 2 quads barely generate any heat at all..

14:56 <FreeLarry58> keep door open to heat basement

14:57 <old> I have a small window A/C for summer and heat the house durring the winter

14:57 <FreeLarry58> yeah hawmps noticed that on the new quad and the new dually

14:57 <FreeLarry58> heatpump here now old but during winter soooo

14:58 <CoderForLife> good to see you, old - I'll bbiab

14:58 <CoderForLife> u2 Larry =)

14:58 <FreeLarry58> once i get the wifes credit cards paid down (again) mayb i can upgrade a few more

14:58 <FreeLarry58> wb CoderForLife

15:00 <old> I have a 120mm Zaleman with heatpipes for the CPU in the turtle and a 630 watt power supply for the twoSLI cards and 4 10,000rpm 100 gig HD's and the box has 2 120mm fans in it ,hope thats enough for it

15:01 <Tank_Master> 100GB?

15:01 <Tank_Master> SCSI?

15:07 <FreeLarry58> humm what would normally be d: drive (cd/dvd) be called in linus?

15:08 <old> I have them running in a couple of my boxes and a couple on the shelf to put into a couple of the other boxes, think at last count I had 7 home built ones and one factory one a sony viao

15:08 <DerMeister> Depends on the type of the drive.... Here I have two hard drives called /dev/hda and /dev/hda... My cd-writer is /dev/hdc while my dvd-drive is /dev/hdd...

15:08 <DerMeister> but this will be different for scsi or sata drives

15:09 <DerMeister> maybe there is even /dev/cdrom oder /dev/cdrom1 etc...

15:10 <FreeLarry58> ahh was looking to try command line to make an iso but couldn't remember what called either

15:10 <FreeLarry58> is there a way to check what the drive is called - the machine has one hd and one combo dvd/cd rew

15:10 <FreeLarry58> rw

15:11 <hawmps> scsi or something else?

15:11 <Romulus> hell primegird is just 'sd'

15:11 <hawmps> it's usually hda or hdb

15:12 <FreeLarry58> think the hd is hda humm just remembered there is second hd in there so its hdb

15:12 <hawmps> then it will be hdc

15:12 <FreeLarry58> hd are sata

15:12 <hawmps> or hdd

15:13 <FreeLarry58> looks like player is eide

15:13 <hawmps> turning on automount usually solves the problem

15:14 <FreeLarry58> yeah but using putty as machine is deadheaded

15:15 <FreeLarry58> guess i will take to different machine and use gui

15:16 <hawmps> eide will still show up as hdx

15:19 <hawmps> look at /etc/mtab or fstab

16:22 <mweltin> PovAddict, you there?

16:22 * Tank_Master slaps PovAddict around a bit with a large trout

16:22 <mweltin> adding debug information doesn't slow down a program, just makes the code foot print bigger right?

16:23 <PovAddict> well of course it slows it down

16:23 <PovAddict> it's just usually too little to matter

16:23 <Tank_Master> lol

16:23 <mweltin> will "strip" take care of that, or do I need to recompile? not that it matters :)

16:23 <DerMeister> Depends on where you put the debug information... Putting it into the "hot loop" is probably a bad idea if the application should be used in production...

16:24 <PovAddict> ohh

16:24 <PovAddict> I thought you meant printing debugging info

16:24 <PovAddict> if you mean just -g, no, it shouldn't slow down stuff

16:24 <DerMeister> Recompiling with -O2 and without -g and an additional strip after that should provide the best executable - provided your program still works after optimization ;)

16:24 <mweltin> no "foot print" like code size.

16:24 <mweltin> LOL

16:25 <PovAddict> I thought you meant printing debugging messages

16:25 <DerMeister> PovAddict: if you use -g *instead* of -O2 will slow down things dramatically ;)

18:20 <MTughan> It was just added today.

18:23 <Rookie_69> They sell computers in Canada???

18:23 <Rookie_69> I better go check this out.

18:24 <Rookie_69> They're all in Upper Canada :-(

18:25 <xcamel> off to see the daughter's play...

18:25 <xcamel> bbl..

18:25 <Rookie_69> K.

18:26 <Rookie_69> That's it... I'm moving into my parents' back yard in Muskoka.

18:32 <Rookie_69> That would almost cut the distance to Doug's place in half.

18:32 *** KathrynM_ has joined #boinc

18:32 <Rookie_69> Hi, K.

18:32 * wdsmia would have to move to the west coast

18:34 <wdsmia> just to stay upwind of Rookie_69

18:34 <Rookie_69> No matter... They wouldn't let me across the border anymore.

18:35 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

18:35 <Rookie_69> Bye, K.

18:35 <Rookie_69> Is it tomorrow in Korea yet?

18:45 <Rookie_69> Must be an inch of snow on the road... Good thing the plow went by before there was any real accumulation...

18:46 <wdsmia> lol

18:47 <Rookie_69> Now, they can claim overtime.

18:51 <Rookie_69> The city complains about being over budget, and yesterday there must have been about a ton of salt on each kilometer of sidewalk, and no snow or ice... I don't understand them.

19:00 <Tank_Master> its the government, what would you expect?

19:01 <Tank_Master> they want money, and they will spend it on anything that makes their lives easier

19:04 <Rookie_69> At least this snow should all melt off of the sidewalks... maybe they were thinking ahead? Nope. They're probably out right now pushing the salt off of the sidewalks with their little plows.

19:06 *** DerMeister has quit IRC

19:07 <Rookie_69> No, wait... Maybe the sidewalk plows aren't allowed out until 10 am monday...

19:07 <Tank_Master> lol

19:08 *** Ageless has joined #boinc

19:09 <Rookie_69> I think the main job of the sidewalk plow is to push the snow back out into the street after the street has been cleared.

19:09 <Rookie_69> Hi, Jord!

19:09 <Ageless> don't talk about snow. We had it, I am glad it's gone. We're getting temps up to 15C now.

19:10 <Ageless> hi all. :)

19:10 <Tank_Master> hey

19:10 * Rookie_69 is getting snowed on as we speak.

19:10 <Ageless> tell it to take a hike, Glenn. ;)

19:11 * Tank_Master wants more snow

19:11 <Rookie_69> ... and temps of 1C.

19:11 <Tank_Master> lol

19:11 <Tank_Master> balmy

19:11 <PovAddict> hey Ageless

19:12 <Ageless> I spoke with Eric Myers a while back, after he had cleared the snow off his walkway to the house and also off the neighbors', he plowed it all into the street and got a warning from the police that that was not allowed.

19:12 <Ageless> makes me wonder where you're supposed to leave the stuff then. Flush it down the toilet? ;)

19:13 <Rookie_69> That overtaxes the sewer...

19:14 <Rookie_69> Piles of snow pushed back into the street are a hazard to people driving by...

19:14 <PovAddict> Ageless: no....

19:14 <PovAddict> you make snowballs

19:14 <Rookie_69> Make snow blocks and build a fort on the front lawn?

19:15 <PovAddict> and aim at police

19:16 * Rookie_69 is California Dreamin' on days like this.

19:16 <Ageless> he's living in a dead-end.

19:16 <Ageless> not that many people driving by.

19:17 <Tank_Master> you make a snow wall across the street.  Helps keep the noise down from the moterized cars

19:18 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

19:18 <Rookie_69> A friend of mine was going to lay hot water pipes in his driveway to melt the snow, but he got transferred before he did it.

19:19 <Ageless> to warmer regions where they know snow only from pictures?

19:20 <PovAddict> it snowed here last year

19:20 <PovAddict> during a single day, and for the first time in... 50 years?

19:21 <Rookie_69> Shame Canada never took up Turks & Caicos on their offer. :-(

19:22 <Rookie_69> Global warming...

19:23 <Ageless> the new favorite stop word

19:25 * Rookie_69 is looking forward to eleven months of summer...

19:25 <Ageless> you moving to Mercury or Venus?

19:27 <Rookie_69> Maybe Venus... Sulphuric acid atmosphere might be good for an energy source... If I bring enough lead plates...

19:27 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

19:30 <Rookie_69> If I were young enough to enjoy a snowmobile ride, I might really enjoy living in my parents' back yard...

19:31 <Ageless> that begs the question how old (you think) you are and how old your parents are... nothing said about the size of their backgraden.

19:31 <Ageless> and garden

19:31 <Rookie_69> A thousand odd miles inland and summer is hotter and winter is colder.

19:32 <Rookie_69> I'm not half as old as I think I am...

19:32 <Rookie_69> Well, maybe half...

19:33 <Rookie_69> They are on a ten acre plot...

19:33 <Ageless> young by heart and soul, huh?

19:33 <Ageless> you're as old as you feel, not look.

19:33 <Rookie_69> ... and they're older than me by a bit...

19:33 <Rookie_69> I feel about eighty, most days.

19:34 <Ageless> unleashing some scientific formula onto that, you're about 56 then.

19:35 <Rookie_69> Nine hours a day on a concrete floor really takes it out of me... I get sore just about 0730 as I am arriving.

19:35 <Rookie_69> Not yet... only 45 according to thr calendar.

19:36 <Rookie_69> ... the...

19:37 <Rookie_69> Good formula though...

19:38 <Ageless> it needs some tweaking. I'll add the warning "give or take 12 years either way" to it.

19:38 <Rookie_69> Smashed my finger with a hammer today... Why?.. Because I picked up a hammer.

19:39 <Tank_Master> no, its because your finger was in the path of the hammer

19:39 <Rookie_69> Gouged my hand with a screwdriver the other day... why?..

19:39 <Tank_Master> and the hammer tranfered energy into the finger

19:39 <Ageless> the screw fell.

19:39 <Rookie_69> I wasn;t even screwing.

19:39 <Tank_Master> thats to bad

19:39 <Tank_Master> you need to get a GF then

19:40 <Rookie_69> Lol.

19:40 <Ageless> then you'd best take a can opener like normal people

19:40 <Ageless> they're cheap

19:40 <Ageless> and less dangerous than a hammer and a screwdriver. Or just don't eat canned food anymore.

19:40 <Rookie_69> Have you ever had one of those days? That's my life.

19:40 <Ageless> and drink your beer from a bottle

19:41 <wdsmia> Rookie's problem is that he needs to be smarter than the tool

19:41 <Rookie_69> Keg...

19:41 <Rookie_69> :-P

19:41 <Ageless> no... cos you won't get the peg out without some tool

19:41 <Rookie_69> You can get food in a can???

19:41 <PovAddict> lol outdated

19:42 <Ageless> we can: our microwave died

19:42 <Rookie_69> Kegs don't have pegs nowadays...

19:42 <PovAddict> I remember a website saying "There was an error with your request, but the page for displaying the error had an error too. This will be one of those days."

19:45 <Rookie_69> I made the mistake of stalling a Chrysler 3.1 litre engine by putting my hand too close to the serpentine belt a few years ago, and my hand hasn't been the same since.

19:45 <Rookie_69> It's more like a weather forecaster now...

19:46 <wdsmia> Ouch

19:46 <Rookie_69> If it feels like someone's hitting it with a hammer, we're in for some weather.

19:46 <Rookie_69> ... or I'm holding a hammer...

19:47 <Rookie_69> ... except that's my hammer-holding hand...

19:48 <Ageless> someone else hit you on the hand, maybe?

19:48 <Romulus> not sure. I'd love testing it on frlar2 currently

19:48 * PovAddict hits Romulus with FreeLarry's computer

19:48 <Rookie_69> Not any of my friends... Oh wait... I don't have any left.

19:49 <Rookie_69> ;-)

19:49 <Ageless> perhaps one on your right?

19:50 <Rookie_69> Yup. TV is on my right.

19:50 <Rookie_69> ... and stereo.

19:50 <Ageless> and the microwave dinners

19:50 <Rookie_69> ?

19:50 <Rookie_69> What's a microwave dinner?

19:51 * Rookie_69 likes to cook.

19:51 <Ageless> uneatable

19:51 <Rookie_69> Lol.

19:51 <Rookie_69> :-)

19:51 <PovAddict> rook the cook

19:51 * Rookie_69 isn't a good cook, just likes to try.

19:52 <Tank_Master> your a pretend cook

19:52 <Ageless> as long as you don't burn the house down and you feel fed afterwards, it's all right, Glenn

19:52 <wdsmia> Rookie's idea of a microwave dinner is sticking a sandwich in the cd-rom drive

19:52 <Rookie_69> ... and press burn...

19:53 <PovAddict> lol wdsmia

19:54 <Rookie_69> Six hours to produce a pot of soup may not be professional, but I can have a lot of fun.

19:54 <Ageless> you can't burn anything in a cd-ROm drive... ;)

19:54 <Rookie_69> D'OH!

19:54 <Tank_Master> QMC's beta apps is long

19:54 <Tank_Master> I gave one stating itll take 221h on my core2duo 3GHz

19:55 <Tank_Master> might as well run climate!

19:55 <Rookie_69> I think every CPDN I tried crapped out after six months or so.

19:56 <Ageless> I started running one of the CPDN Beta models. Initial ETC 4665 hours. That's 6.5 months. After 12 hours it was at 0.2%... um... no thanks.

19:57 <PovAddict> first one I ran...

19:57 <PovAddict> I detached before first trickle :)

19:57 <PovAddict> next... crash after 300 hrs

19:57 <PovAddict> I think the next was a success

19:58 <Rookie_69> I let a few go until they crapped out.

19:58 <PovAddict> I also ran a few small ones (300 hrs *total*)

19:59 <Ageless> my QMC says it still needs another 58 hours but it is only at 20% after 8 hours...

19:59 <PovAddict> &google calc 58 hours / 20% * 100%

19:59 <Romulus> PovAddict: ((58 hours) / (20%)) * (100%) = 12.0833333 days

19:59 <PovAddict> er

19:59 <PovAddict> &google calc 8 hours / 20% * 100%

19:59 <Romulus> PovAddict: ((8 hours) / (20%)) * (100%) = 1.66666667 days

20:00 <Rookie_69> That's only 40 hours...

20:00 <Ageless> if it ran alone... too bad for it there's 14 other projects also wanting my one CPU ;)

20:00 <PovAddict> &google calc 8 hours / 20% * 100% in hours

20:00 <Romulus> PovAddict: ((8 hours) / (20%)) * (100%) = 40 hours

20:00 <PovAddict> Ageless: solution is pretty simple

20:00 <PovAddict> more CPUs

20:00 <Ageless> I need more money first then.

20:01 <Rookie_69> My solution is pretty simple too...

20:01 <Ageless> the other day someone asked my why I was using that antiquated CPU on a project.

20:01 <PovAddict> a friend surpassed 500k quite long ago

20:01 <PovAddict> because he attached a friends' computers

20:01 <PovAddict> including a quad

20:01 <Ageless> I explained quite pleasantly that that antiquated CPU is the only one I have and when it dies, I'm gone... ;)

20:01 <Rookie_69> Methyl alcohol, CO2, water, barley, etc...

20:01 <wdsmia>

20:01 <Romulus> <> (at

20:02 <Rookie_69> Annoying Mouse???

20:02 <PovAddict> 323/533 benchmark? lol

20:02 <Ageless> not that antiquated

20:03 <Ageless> I run a real Paul D. Buck P4 2.8GHhz ;)

20:03 <PovAddict> I run a part-time P4 3.0GHz

20:03 <Ageless> oiow I got it from Paul a ways back.

20:03 <PovAddict> and a full-time AMD Athlon dual core 4200+

20:04 <Rookie_69> The only Paul I know here doesn't seem to have a last name...

20:04 <wdsmia> I would list mine... but dont want to flood the channel ;)

20:04 <Ageless> I'm still supposed to 'take-over' Holly's PC and install BOINC on it, but I never seem to find the time. She's got a P4 2.6GHz HT, one we got from mikey.

20:07 <Rookie_69> My old AMD's seem to be dying unceremonious deaths...

20:07 <Ageless> something to do with a hammer?

20:08 <Rookie_69> Old age? I replaced one power supply, but it still won't boot.

20:08 <PovAddict> mobo?

20:09 <Rookie_69> I thought those swollen capacitors were a dead giveaway.

20:09 <Ageless> you can replace them... I did on one mobo and one videocard.

20:09 <Ageless> just needs some good old swearing and a soldering iron, plus the correct new capacitors.

20:10 <Rookie_69> My last AN\MD mobo that died had 18 swollen caps and I didn't even try.

20:10 <Rookie_69> ... AMD...

20:10 <wdsmia> He hits himself with a hammer and stabs himself with a scewdriver and now you want to give him a sodering iron?

20:11 <Ageless> perhaps he does better with electrical appliances.

20:11 <Rookie_69> Cauterization is a wonderful thing.

20:11 <Ageless> he can also cook, which usually happens on gas...

20:11 <Rookie_69> Stops the bleeding.

20:12 <Rookie_69> Only gas here is usually a result of cooking.

20:12 <wdsmia> lol

20:13 <Ageless> if you boil your soup for 6 hours, yeah right!

20:13 <Rookie_69> Stove is electric... and I've had to rewire that twice, The landlady only buys the best of the rest...

20:14 <Ageless> you can probably loosen the capacitors by placing the defunct mobo onto the cooker then.

20:14 <Ageless> it's dead already anyway...

20:15 <Ageless> Keith is on his way. Hide everyone ;)

20:16 <PovAddict> /nick PovAddict_away

20:16 <Rookie_69> The refrigerator is too small for me and the guy below me has one that is too big for him; We thought about trading, but stairs probably wouldn't take the weight.

20:16 <Romulus> well change the version name messed up

20:17 * Rookie_69 hides.

20:17 <Ageless> I have a link somewhere that shows you in small words how best to replace capacitors. I'll look it up if you want me to.

20:29 <CoderForLife> she says her boxes are slowly dying, and that she forgets how to get on IRC, iir what he said

20:29 <Keith_Stanley> I've got her phone number somewhere...

20:30 <CoderForLife> I have her address somewhere

20:30 <Rookie_69> Hi, Don.

20:31 <PovAddict> everyone is after her

20:32 <CoderForLife> I think he may have been the last person to visit her, quite some time ago

20:32 <Keith_Stanley> S'OK..I've found her phone number and I'll try calling some time tomorrow.

20:32 <CoderForLife> thanks Keith - she is sorely missed here

20:39 *** CoderForLife has quit IRC

20:39 <Ageless> go away. the station that did BSG here took it off the air as the new coordinator didn't like sci-fi. They put season 10 of Stargate in a slot at 5am !!

20:39 <Ageless> ah he is away already

20:41 <wdsmia> A recap of the space opera's first three seasons is featured. Executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick provide commentary.

20:43 <wdsmia> 2nd part The space opera's appeal is examined with celebrities. Remarks from actor Seth Green, country-music singer Brad Paisley and "The Soup" host Joel McHal

20:44 * wdsmia thinks he will pass

20:44 <Rookie_69> I guess Richard Hatch couldn't find a real job and came back for the remake.

20:44 <Rookie_69> ... or something...

20:45 <Rookie_69> I think Dirk Benedict had a sex-change operation...

20:45 <Rookie_69> Lol.

20:47 <Rookie_69> Country and music in the same sentence... is that legal?

20:48 <MTughan> lol...

20:48 <wdsmia> play it backwards

20:48 <Rookie_69> ... you get your dog back...

20:49 <Rookie_69> ... you get your truck back...

20:49 <Ageless> but your woman stays away

20:49 <Rookie_69> ... you get your house back...

20:52 <Rookie_69> With that much back, no wonder they came up with Brokeback...

20:52 <Rookie_69> Lol.

20:54 <Rookie_69> Oh well. I didn't see the movie either.

20:54 <Ageless> it starts smelling like popcirn here.

20:54 * wdsmia looks back though the log... this room is looking like a TFFE convention

20:55 <Keith_Stanley> Don't panic....

20:55 <Ageless> I'm no TFFE'er... got forced off by our friends in Seti, remember?

20:56 <Keith_Stanley> Only too well.

20:56 <Ageless> as they didn't want all moderators to be of TFFE... so now most are of BS.

20:57 <Ageless> but I digress, continue ;)

20:57 <wdsmia> well the "BS" part is right in more ways than one

20:57 <Keith_Stanley> Hmmm...

20:58 <MTughan> And I'm glad I'm not part of TFFE.

20:58 <PovAddict> from a PM I got:

21:05 <PovAddict> when you have Glenn's hammer, every poblem looks like a nail

21:05 <Rookie_69> Only good for hitting fingers...

21:07 <Rookie_69> That's an awfully big cooling fan for in a mouse...

21:07 * PovAddict goes play some game before his head asplodes for real

21:08 <Ageless> aren't there a couple of screws on the underside?

21:09 <Rookie_69> center seems to be flared out?

21:09 <Rookie_69> Drill it out.

21:11 <Rookie_69> Project Hover-Mouse?

21:12 <Ageless> since when does a mouse have a fan?

21:14 <Rookie_69> Uh-oh... large armature next to fan in first picture... Hyper-fan project...

21:15 <Ageless> small feather on the floor gives away the size of this thing

21:16 <Rookie_69> Looks almost messy as my place.

21:16 <Ageless> I've got one of that size hanging from my ceiling

21:16 <Ageless> ah no, it'll be slightly bigger.

21:17 <wdsmia> feather? or fan? lol

21:17 <Ageless> seeing the dust on the fan, both...

21:17 <Rookie_69> Ruby still not allowed out when fan running???

21:19 <Ageless> ok, time for me to say good night. Going to watch one of the two episodes of STTNG , got the other in the VCR (old fashioned one with tapes). Night all.

21:19 <wdsmia> cya

21:19 <Rookie_69> She sheds too many feathers when caught in fan.

21:19 <Rookie_69> Bye.

22:05 <mweltin> I ahve a million things going on right now.  Trying to get some big proposal out the door next week.  I ahve a lot of reserach to do by then.

22:06 <mweltin> KathrynM, wtf was that?

22:06 <Tank_Master> ahh, yeah, $$ and diving come first

22:06 <KathrynM> written by one of my 3rd graders

22:06 <mweltin> no diving and then $$

22:09 * KathrynM goes to sweep

22:09 <Romulus> would help if i like my xo pic

22:09 <KathrynM> This is the only way the cleaning is gonna get done.

22:09 <KathrynM> Clean a bit then come back here.

22:10 <Tank_Master> nice

22:10 <PovAddict> lol @ Romulus talking of the xo pic

22:15 <mweltin> PovAddict, glad you are here, do I need to put single quotes around my command line argument string I pass to create_work?/

22:15 <mweltin> the tasks fail not because they can't download the instance file, but because they can't find it once its called from the wrapper app.

22:16 <mweltin> the wrapper app relies on a -i fileanme

22:16 <mweltin> I pass  a few more switches and the only thing that makes it to the wrapper is the (-i)

22:16 <mweltin> everything after the first space is gone.

22:16 <mweltin>

22:16 <Romulus> <> (at

22:17 <MTughan> Password req'd for there.

22:17 <mweltin> opps

22:17 <mweltin>

22:18 <MTughan> What's the command being sent?

22:18 <PovAddict> show your create_work stuff

22:20 <mweltin>

22:21 <PovAddict> and buffer is?

22:21 <mweltin> char *

22:22 <PovAddict> no, show whole line

22:22 <PovAddict> if it's just char* buffer; you're definitely doing it wrong

22:22 <mweltin> well it has memory allocated to it.

22:23 <MTughan> How much?

22:23 <Romulus> Rumor has it How much are you payin' for it, MTughan

22:23 <mweltin> 200+- bytes

22:23 <MTughan> STFU Rommie.

22:28 <mweltin> so what od you think PovAddict add some single quotes?  As i mentioned the -i gets passed, but everything after the first space is gone.

22:29 <PovAddict> yeah but I'm not sure where that gets lost

22:29 <PovAddict> maybe the wrapper doesn't pass it to the worker app

22:29 <PovAddict> maybe it's getting lost way before

22:30 <mweltin> is yoyo around? he uses the wrapper

22:31 <PovAddict> go to the result page on ops

22:31 <PovAddict> pastebin "XML doc in"

22:33 <mweltin>

22:33 <PovAddict> damn, wrong one... wasn't the result, sorry

22:33 <PovAddict> click on the workunit name

22:33 <PovAddict> pastebin XML doc from the workunit

22:34 <PovAddict> wait

22:34 <PovAddict> sheeesh

22:34 <mweltin>

22:34 <PovAddict> where's the flipping command line

22:34 <KathrynM> lol

22:34 <PovAddict> ah shows there

22:34 *** BiteAbleKat has joined #boinc

22:34 *** BiteAbleKat is now known as tamar

22:34 <mweltin> that is the workunit xml doc

22:34 *** tamar is now known as BiteAbleKat

22:34 <mweltin> and its all there.

22:34 <PovAddict> well so it did reach the WU

22:34 <PovAddict> I'd blame wrapper

22:34 <MTughan> Let me look that up...

22:35 <PovAddict> look up what?

22:35 <MTughan> How the wrapper passes args.

22:35 <Romulus> good, it's accessible then

22:35 <PovAddict>

22:35 <mweltin> well if I run the create work script manually it works.

22:35 <Romulus> <> (at

22:35 <MTughan> I have the source here too.

22:35 <PovAddict> mweltin: really?

22:35 <PovAddict> hmm

22:35 <mweltin> yeah

22:36 <PovAddict> search for a workunit created that way

22:36 <PovAddict> the way that works :)

22:36 <PovAddict> and pastebin xml doc

22:36 <mweltin>

22:37 <PovAddict> ....

22:37 <PovAddict> that one works?

22:38 <mweltin> mmmmmmmm I may be wrong in my assumption

22:38 <mweltin> running ../../projects/bob.myisland.as_tsp/acoAlgo_1.7_i686-pc-linux-gnu (-i)

22:38 <mweltin> good workunit shows the same wrapper call with just the (-i)

22:38 <mweltin> this blows

22:39 <MTughan> Nope, the version of the wrapper that I have appends all arguments it seems.

22:40 <MTughan> Wait, there is another place it could be terminated...

22:40 <MTughan> Nvm, it'd have to be bigger than 4KB.

22:41 <mweltin> crap I have to go pick up my GF from the hospital.

22:41 <mweltin> I'll have another go at this later.

22:41 <mweltin> AAAAAARGGGGGGGGg

22:41 <mweltin> take care

22:41 <mweltin> bye

22:41 <KathrynM> bye

22:42 <PovAddict> KathrynM++

22:43 <PovAddict> KathrynM: you missed a lot

22:46 <KathrynM> I did?

22:47 <PovAddict> well there's lots of different ideas pulling in different directions...

22:47 <PovAddict> like migrating content from the unofficial BOINC wiki into the official one

22:47 <KathrynM> on that seti thread?

22:47 <PovAddict> or improving unofficial, or starting from scratch, or starting new wikis, blah

22:47 <Romulus> so if i could look again

22:48 <PovAddict> Jord forwarded me something Paul mailed him, not quite matching with Didactylos's plan

22:48 * PovAddict explodes

22:48 <KathrynM> I may take a break once I hit 750K

22:48 <KathrynM> or before that...

22:49 <PovAddict> I personally see no point in stopping BOINCing...

22:49 <KathrynM> meh

22:49 <KathrynM> It's not so much fun anymore

22:49 <PovAddict> if the community becomes a mess, I'll ignore the community and crunch in silence

22:49 <PovAddict> become a "set it and forget it" user

22:49 <PovAddict> doesn't matter how bad the community or the development gets, I won't stop hating idle CPUs!

22:50 * efc just ran "Hello World" in VHDL

23:16 <KathrynM> Any SouthPark fans out there?

23:22 <PovAddict> see a few random pages:

23:22 <Romulus> <> (at

23:22 <PovAddict>

23:22 <Romulus> Title: Dial-Up Connection - Unofficial BOINC Wiki (at

23:22 <PovAddict> note the "General" sub-section?

23:23 * PovAddict looks around for an element to hit Romulus with

23:23 <PovAddict> immediately after the page title

23:23 <KathrynM> yeah

23:24 <PovAddict> that is absolutely never in Wikipedia

23:24 <PovAddict> the introduction is before any sub-heading

23:24 <PovAddict> do you think it's a good idea to change it in that way? ie. to match how WP does it

23:25 <KathrynM> lemme look at a WP page right quick

23:26 <PovAddict> it's impressive how about every BOINC message has its own page in UBW

23:26 <PovAddict> even if wrong, even if incomplete

23:26 <KathrynM> yup

23:26 <KathrynM> I used it quite a bit

23:26 <PovAddict>

23:26 <KathrynM> haven't done much trouble shooting stuff lately

23:26 <Romulus> <> (at

23:27 <PovAddict> 312 pages

23:27 <KathrynM> and yeah, doing the wp way might be better

23:29 <PovAddict> I really don't know what to do

23:30 <PovAddict> what seems like better and less work?

23:30 <PovAddict> move useful stuff to or remove useless stuff from v5? :)

23:30 <Romulus> Title: Main Page - Unofficial BOINC Wiki (at

23:31 *** old is now known as old511

23:31 * old511 is away - L.A.S.F. - Later all Simper Fi - Pager[Off] Log[On]

23:32 *** old511 has quit IRC

23:32 <MTughan> WTF?

23:32 <PovAddict> he quit

23:32 <KathrynM> I think v6 looks better

23:32 <MTughan> Oh, I didn't see he was here before...

23:33 <PovAddict> but v6 is *empty*

23:33 <KathrynM> front page looks better :)

23:33 <PovAddict> I mean, what's less work...

23:33 <PovAddict> cleanup the old, or progressively move the old into the new

23:33 <KathrynM> sometimes starting from scratch is less work

23:33 <KathrynM> as in moving the old into the new

23:33 <KathrynM> and revising as you go along

23:34 <PovAddict> I wouldn't do any major change until I... get through a full planet rotation

23:34 <PovAddict> timezones suck

23:34 <KathrynM> lol

23:34 <PovAddict> I mean I'd first contact Didactylos again, and tell Rytis...

23:34 <PovAddict> and maybe also I should email Chris...

23:34 <PovAddict>

23:35 <PovAddict> I asked Rytis if they owned that domain too, and why it wasn't working

23:35 <PovAddict> answers were:

23:35 <PovAddict> - domains are technically owned by Eric Myers

23:35 <MTughan> Did you know that Didactylos is the head of the team at WCG?

23:35 <PovAddict> MTughan: no, I thought he was just a member... and part of WCG admins

23:36 <MTughan> Is that supposed to be sarcastic, or was it truthful?

23:36 <PovAddict> I didn't know he was the team founder

23:36 <MTughan> Ah, okay... Yeah, he is.

23:37 <PovAddict> and as for why the domain doesn't take to the wiki

23:37 <PovAddict> "because Chris is an idiot"

23:38 <KathrynM> oye

23:38 <MTughan> lol

23:38 <PovAddict> "he's playing with his server's config too much, breaking stuff all the time"

23:38 <Romulus> This is only a tiny little quake down in the app with a large trout

23:38 <PovAddict> (Christopher Malton that is)

23:39 <PovAddict> and in other news, tomorrow it's Rytis's birthday

23:39 *** Vecnah has joined #boinc
