00:06 <efc> don't see any weather stuff that can detect lightning (other than if its charred, there was lightning)

00:07 <KathrynM> lol

00:07 <KathrynM> that's great

00:10 <efc> Oh nevermind, they have lightning detectors

00:11 <efc> though they are $600 ?!

00:12 <PovAddict> <^Ocean^> I lost 33gig of HDSpace

00:12 <PovAddict> <LlNK> lol

00:12 <PovAddict> <LlNK> check under your keyboard

00:13 <KathrynM> holy cow...  that thread.......

00:13 <PovAddict> maybe I should start ignoring it

00:13 <KathrynM> better for your mental health

00:14 <PovAddict>

00:14 <Romulus> Title: QDB: Quote #86012 (at

00:14 <efc> hehe this is good.. "Also, since a personal lightning detector is triggered by EMPs, interference from other EMP-emitting devices (such as electronic equipment, ...nuclear weapons, and even car engines)

00:14 <PovAddict> that sounds like something I would do

00:14 <KathrynM> lol

00:14 <efc> I'm not too worried about nuclear weapons false-alarming my lightning detector

01:03 <zombie67> ah, this is the old wiki, right?

01:03 *** Wabbit67 has quit IRC

01:03 <PovAddict> well

01:03 <PovAddict> can it be called old, considering there is nothing newer? :)

01:04 <zombie67> well, there is trac

01:05 <zombie67> and there is this:

01:05 <Romulus> Title: BOINC FAQ Service (at

01:05 <PovAddict> confusing to users, isn't it?

01:05 <zombie67> I can never tell what is old or new

01:05 <zombie67> very

01:05 <PovAddict> dozen places to look for help, none complete enough :)

01:05 <zombie67> that is one reason I created my own

01:06 <zombie67> list of projects

01:06 <zombie67> heh, scrol down to the bottom of that last url

01:06 <zombie67> ;)

01:07 <zombie67> I don't mind helping out on a FAQ or Wiki

01:08 <zombie67> but I want some kind of assurance that it will be official, and the others will be retired

01:09 <Wabbit> zombie wants to dominate

01:09 *** Wabbit is now known as Wabbit98

01:12 <zombie67> not dominate, just don't want to waste time, like has happened in the past, too many times

01:19 <Wabbit98> it seems that way

01:19 <PovAddict> just wondering what to answer to latest Paul's novel

01:19 <PovAddict> forum post*

01:19 <zombie67> ah

01:19 <PovAddict> meh same length

01:20 <zombie67> any time it takes 43 words to say "yes" or "no", I have to question why

01:20 <PovAddict> lol

01:20 <PovAddict> well here's the thing

01:20 <PovAddict> Paul isn't understanding what I say

01:20 <PovAddict> I'm not trying to start wiki from scratch, and single-handedly

01:20 *** Wabbit67 has joined #boinc

01:20 <zombie67> *I* still don't understand what *he* is trying to say

01:21 <PovAddict> it's me, Didactylos, Ageless, Rytis, KathrynM, you, [...] trying to decide what the hell to do with the wiki

01:21 <PovAddict> and depending on the decision, it may involve asking DA about making it official, or if he would agree, etc

01:21 <PovAddict> and if he doesn't, on to think another alternative

01:21 <zombie67> he keeps implying refernces to things tha happened inthe past.  well, I wasn't there speak plainly manz!

01:21 <Wabbit67> would DA ever agree

01:22 <Wabbit67> what is he referring to? (has been around since like the beginning

01:23 <zombie67> DA?  I get the impression he is a control freak

01:24 <Wabbit67> he would want to write the wiki and make sure no one else edited it again

01:24 <Wabbit67> or not mention any other project but SETI

01:25 <zombie67> no, I think he would want someone ELSE to do the work.  He would just want control over content

01:26 <Didactylos> BOINC has an official wiki already.

01:27 <zombie67> we do?

01:27 <PovAddict> Trac

01:27 <zombie67> ah

01:27 <Didactylos> Indeed.

01:27 <Didactylos> We can make it whatever we want it to be (within reason).

01:27 <Wabbit67> reasoning is overrated

01:27 <MTughan> lol

01:28 <PovAddict> Paul keeps thinking I'm trying to start the wiki from scratch and single-handedly

01:28 <MTughan> *whistles* 1:30AM...

01:28 <PovAddict> and thinks I think I can re-do what he took years to do

01:28 <PovAddict> I guess he doesn't understand what I mean with "we"

01:28 <Wabbit67> not the individual we?

01:29 <PovAddict> but I'm not sure if I want to keep arguing with him and trying to get him to understand

01:29 <zombie67> hah!  Trac refers you to the unoficial wiki

01:29 <Didactylos> zombie67: interwiki is good. It eliminates duplication.

01:30 <zombie67> I know, but a single source is better, esp for searching

01:30 <Didactylos> Indeed.

01:30 <zombie67> also, I find it funny that it refers to a wiki that is defunt according to paul

01:30 <PovAddict> well, if they all have a clearly-defined and non-overlapping purpose...

01:30 <Didactylos> But interwiki will make it possible for projects to have their own wiki for project-specific stuff.

01:31 <PovAddict> Paul copied project creation documentation from boinc website and put it on the wiki, unchanged

01:31 <PovAddict> that's just useless duplication imho

01:31 <Didactylos> Putting project-specific stuff on an official BOINC wiki is a problem for me. If it's official BOINC, it has to be project agnostic.

01:32 <zombie67> i think it is a mistake to separate projects from BOINC

01:32 <Didactylos> That's why I'm behind keeping UBW independant, as a single semi-official place for project-specific documentation.

01:32 <zombie67> new users don't see a difference

01:32 <MTughan> It could use examples of concepts from projects IMO.

01:32 <PovAddict> I still heard no comment about the comparison I made

01:32 <PovAddict> <Didactylos> Having two wiki engines on the same site would drive me nuts.

01:32 * PovAddict hits Romulus with a wiki engine

01:33 <zombie67> And when there is a problem, it may be BOINC or it may be the project app, or it may be a combination.

01:34 <PovAddict> zombie67: do users look on their browser help files to know how to use a web app? :)

01:34 <zombie67> dunno

01:34 <Wabbit67> I don't

01:34 <zombie67> I can't tell the difference any more

01:34 <zombie67> lines are blurring

01:35 <PovAddict> argh

01:35 <PovAddict> UBW abuses templates

01:35 <PovAddict> try to edit that page

01:35 <Didactylos> PovAddict: "ur general project wiki is at -- the site you're currently browsing is ONLY for bug tracking, and source code."

01:35 <Romulus> <> (at

01:35 <Romulus> Title: The OLPC Wiki - OLPC (at

01:35 <Romulus> I was one of the what, 250 of our snow. Can't help it it is for

01:35 <Didactylos> I.e. OLPC don't use the Trac wiki at all.

01:36 <zombie67> Why can't each project have a section within the boinc wiki?

01:36 <PovAddict> I think project and BOINC docs should be separated...

01:37 <Didactylos> zombie67: projects are autonomous - entirely seperate. Love it or hate it, that's the way it is.

01:37 <zombie67> I understand that,

01:37 <zombie67> but like I said, many users do no see a distinction

01:37 <PovAddict> let's make them see it...?

01:38 <PovAddict> MediaWiki manual doesn't explain Wikipedia policies and writing guidelines etc... Wikipedia is just *a* MediaWiki-based wiki

01:38 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

01:38 <zombie67> ho many times have you seen people have questions about (what is really a) BOINC in the project forums??

01:38 <zombie67> how

01:38 <Didactylos> PovAddict: now *that's* a good example.

01:39 <zombie67> and request/demand changes to boinc in the project forums

01:39 <PovAddict> sometimes wikipedia help links you back to mediawiki manual for things like formatting syntax

01:39 <Didactylos> zombie67: and that's fine. Projects are expected to provide basic BOINC troubleshooting.

01:39 <zombie67> How about a couple of wikis?  One for BOINC and one for projects?

01:40 <PovAddict> zombie67: official wiki and UBW is currently like that, *sort of*

01:40 <Didactylos> zombie67: now that's what I've been saying.

01:40 <PovAddict> sort of, because UBW is superoutdated, and official wiki lacks good user docs

01:41 <PovAddict> I still think user and dev should be separated as well; but I seem to be in the minority, so...

01:41 <zombie67> okay, I am going back to my first point.  I can point out at LEAST 5 sites that are BOINC FAQ/WIKI sites.

01:41 <Romulus> You might have got some lhc/windows work..

01:41 <Didactylos> I know a technical writer (a good one).

01:42 <Didactylos> She can't write it for us, but I think if we put together the user docs in the form we think they should be, she can advise us where we go wrong.

01:42 <PovAddict> Didactylos: I'm trying to document the brain-dead GUIRPC protocol and the little I have is badly written :) so that *will* help

01:42 <zombie67> for every splinter, you will get a different set of answers, often contradictory or out of date

01:43 <Didactylos> PovAddict: did you see the page I wrote....

01:43 <Romulus> <> (at

01:43 <PovAddict> zombie67: if the official docs are good, people will rarely stumble upon the scattered-round-the-net docs

01:43 <PovAddict> sure, there are lots of crappy useless forums about Linux, on free forum hostings

01:44 <PovAddict> but people will ask on the forum from the distro website and get much better answers

01:44 <PovAddict> Didactylos: I did long ago, didn't remember it

01:44 <Didactylos> zombie67: All the major BOINC sites are run (or have involvement with) the same people who want to solve the BOINC wiki mess.

01:45 <Didactylos> No matter what Paul thinks, we aren't really egocentric types (much) ;-)

01:45 <PovAddict> Didactylos: as much as DTDs are probably more well-known, have a look at relax-ng compact :)

01:46 <Didactylos> It was DTD or XML Schema.

01:46 <Didactylos> Did I pick right?

01:46 <PovAddict> oh if that's the choice, DTD

01:46 <PovAddict> schema is nowhere near human-readable

01:47 <Didactylos> :-D

01:48 <PovAddict>

01:48 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Something - post number 963065 (at

01:48 <zombie67> I can see three sites:  1)  Official BOINC; 2)  Official Projects' sites (perhaps they could be centralized?); 3)  User sites telling you how to *really* solve the problem you have.

01:51 <zombie67> is there some way to group a search across multiple sites using google in some way?

01:52 <PovAddict>

01:52 <Romulus> <> (at

01:53 <zombie67> no, I mean, having a single search site that would search across multiple  (but limited) sites.

01:53 <Didactylos> Is one of the reasons UBW wasn't maintained fully *because* it was so huge and covers a lot of things it didn't need to?

01:53 <PovAddict> Didactylos: maybe...

01:54 <zombie67> IOW, A BOINC "sesarch bage"

01:54 <PovAddict> Didactylos: maybe also that some parts are annoying to edit

01:54 <zombie67> page

01:54 <PovAddict> try to edit that, see what you get

01:54 <PovAddict> it's a page containing just a template

01:55 <PovAddict> your average lemmi^H^H^H^H^H user won't figure out how to get to the template edit page

01:55 <PovAddict> and even then, the Note at the bottom is in *another* template

01:56 <PovAddict> (page containing template containing template)

01:56 <PovAddict> so... user reaches that *page*, notices the note has a typo, seperates -> separates (not hypothetical, actual typo)

01:57 <PovAddict> he will take a damn long while to get to the correct edit page

01:57 <PovAddict> also begining -> beginning

05:45 <KathrynM> more dreaming about Coding?

05:50 <CoderForLife> yes, but I rolled over at 4:00, which deferred action until 5:30

05:50 <Romulus> I remember I just figured this out: one year is too short..

05:51 <CoderForLife> I just started my 2nd test run of the morning

05:52 <KathrynM> nice

05:52 <CoderForLife> of course, it's Coding =)

05:53 <KathrynM> My Operation SPring Cleaning has completed successfully.

05:54 <CoderForLife> ah you had a collection of exception objects

05:54 <KathrynM> that I did

05:55 <KathrynM> I swept, mopped, scrubbed and rubbed

05:55 <CoderForLife> I remember one time going through the refrigerator and coming upon a bowl fo peas

05:55 <CoderForLife> I asked my wife what we were saving the peas for

05:55 <CoderForLife> then i said - never mind, it's corn

05:55 <KathrynM> hahahahaha

05:57 <KathrynM> I got out my summer bedding.

05:58 <KathrynM> Time to put away the ugly pink flowered things.  Only nice thing I can say about them is that they are warm.

05:59 <CoderForLife> is it warm enough yet?

05:59 <KathrynM> nights are still a bit chilly

05:59 <KathrynM> but days are getting really nice.

05:59 <KathrynM> 62 on Mon and Tuesday this week

06:00 <CoderForLife> agreed - nice

07:53 <CoderForLife> ieeee   on top of the long run time, the orbit wu is past the deadline

07:54 * CoderForLife suspends the errant WU

07:55 <CoderForLife> of course, it doesn't suspend

07:55 * CoderForLife takes out the elephant run, and terminates the orbit WU with extreme prejudice

07:55 <DerMeister> *g*

07:56 <CoderForLife> er gun*

07:56 <CoderForLife> I am interested in the orbit project, but I think I'll wait for it to stabilize a bit

07:57 <KathrynM> supposedly the new version takes care of the suspend problem.

07:57 <KathrynM> I don't know because I haven't gotten one.

07:57 <KathrynM> And don't feel so bad about killing it.  It would have died on its own eventually with maximum disk use or something

07:57 <CoderForLife> which new version?

07:57 <KathrynM> uhhhhhhhh

07:57 <KathrynM> dunno

07:58 <KathrynM> Maybe I'm thinkging of another project?

07:58 * KathrynM now realizes why boinc didn't start at boot on the other machine

07:58 <CoderForLife> this one downloaded after the suspend discussion

07:59 <KathrynM> might it have been tagged for the old app?

07:59 <KathrynM> dunno

07:59 * CoderForLife feels tagged

08:00 <KathrynM> you're it

08:00 <CoderForLife> well, that'll be quite enough of THAT for while

09:37 <xcamel> like MythTV?

09:38 <CoderForLife> yes, but this one is open source on Windows

09:38 <xcamel> ah..

09:38 <CoderForLife> very nice UI

09:38 <CoderForLife> we want to record season 4 of BSG

09:38 * xcamel will miss the first 2

09:39 <xcamel> and the Sarah Jane Chronicles

09:39 <xcamel> and Dr Who

09:39 <CoderForLife> 10:00 to 11:00 on any night is tough one for me

09:39 <CoderForLife> we don't have any kind of DVR

09:40 <xcamel> I do, but not satellite

09:40 <CoderForLife> we will this coming week

09:40 <CoderForLife> using one of my existing boxes

09:41 <CoderForLife> it'll have to boinc a little less

09:41 <xcamel> hmmm..

09:41 <CoderForLife> boinc by day, media server by night

09:42 <CoderForLife> a cheap, good solution

09:43 <xcamel> only one winbox, slightly overloaded

09:43 <CoderForLife> this box is currently running OpenSUSE, and only doing boinc (QMC)

09:44 <CoderForLife> we'll put XP back on it

09:45 <CoderForLife> I have some other major expenses to deal with, so I get off with a $60 video capture card and some cables

09:46 <CoderForLife> and no Tivo contract

09:46 <xcamel> wow - I just had an idea..

09:46 <CoderForLife> go on...

09:47 <xcamel> I think I can hook up my box at work to the cable box and record them

09:47 <CoderForLife> good

09:47 <xcamel> I'll have to think on that one some more..

09:48 <CoderForLife> This is my first experience with this sort of thing

09:48 <CoderForLife> Stephen has been watching cable in his room, so we took his machine to the basement and hooked it up to the big screen TV

09:49 <CoderForLife> we'll do the real thing with the media server in the data center, rather than having it out with the TV

09:50 <xcamel> good luck with it..

09:51 <xcamel> I think a media card on my network would bury it.

14:37 <PovAddict> MTughan_: well I still see no flicker in any case

14:37 <MTughan_> Okay, thanks. Maybe it's something with Apple's Java then.

14:38 <MTughan_> I know...

14:39 *** MTughan_ is now known as MTughan

14:39 <MTughan> Yeah, this is really odd... When in focus, it doesn't constantly redraw. It constantly redraws when in the background though...

14:40 <MTughan> Double buffering is on, and it should ignore OS requests to repaint.

15:16 <nickuwo> that's all i can think of

15:16 <Didactylos> What sort of project is it?

15:18 <Didactylos> Do you have the project selected?

15:18 <Didactylos> Open the properties and check the configuration type.

15:20 <ilovegizmos> it says it's just a C/C++ header

15:20 <ilovegizmos> there's another one that says C source but I get the same problem

15:21 <Didactylos> I know!

15:21 <Didactylos> You didn't open the project file.

15:21 <Didactylos> Does UC2 *have* a project file?

15:21 <nickuwo> yea

15:23 <ilovegizmos> does it work with VS 08?

15:26 <nickuwo> apparently it works with the express edition... I'd like to assume that means it'll work with the regular edition as well, but who knows

15:26 <ilovegizmos> well i did the conversion and got 9 failures and 3 successes

15:27 <nickuwo> was uc2 one of the successes?

15:28 <ilovegizmos> no it got a fatal error; couldn't find a source file

15:28 <nickuwo> which one

15:43 <PovAddict> on Windows?

15:43 <PovAddict> you can't use the configure script on Windows

15:43 <ilovegizmos> yea i know

15:43 <ilovegizmos> so do i just run auto_setup as is?

15:44 <ilovegizmos> or _autosetup

15:44 <PovAddict> you can't use autosetup on Windows

15:44 <nickuwo> actually you prolly don't have to build that...

15:44 <PovAddict> at least not with Visual Studio...

15:44 <ilovegizmos> there's another win_build folder or something?

15:44 <PovAddict> yes

15:44 <ilovegizmos> kk

15:48 <ilovegizmos> should i just run the libboinc project?

15:49 <nickuwo> i think samples.sln

15:51 <ilovegizmos> i need to build the boinc libraries before compiling the sample though

15:51 <yoyo[RKN]> yes

15:51 <yoyo[RKN]> you need libboinc

15:52 <ilovegizmos> alright so i'll do that first after this SDK thing; hopefully that'll work right

15:53 <nickuwo> my samples proj builds libboinc b4 all the apps... but I suppose that way will work as well

15:55 <ilovegizmos> i'm just not sure about rolling back the SDK; the wiki says it works in express edition but I have 2008 Pro

15:55 <nickuwo> yea, idk... give it a try without it

17:32 <Romulus> Title: #153 (Make available to translate message strings into Messages tab.) - BOINC - Trac (at

17:33 <PovAddict> yeah, we need an XML* computer-readable syntax for each message

17:33 <PovAddict> * or something else?

17:34 <Didactylos> Any closer to a decision where you want to go with UBW yet?

17:36 <PovAddict> *I* am supposed to decide? o_o

17:36 <Didactylos> Heh. No.

17:37 <Didactylos> IIRC correctly, you would like the project specific stuff banished from any official wiki, and the official wiki split into two.

17:38 <PovAddict> well, a single wiki with dev+client+project stuff definitely is impossible

17:38 <PovAddict> at least because DA will never agree

17:38 <Didactylos> It does save us the trouble of discussin that option, true.

17:38 <PovAddict> (consider "dev" as including "how to set up a project" documentation)

17:39 <Didactylos> 'k

17:39 <Romulus> yes... ironic, isn't it?

17:39 <PovAddict> no it's not, you silly bot

17:40 <PovAddict> &8b will DA ever agree with us?

17:40 <Romulus> PovAddict: Of course.

17:40 <PovAddict> that's encouraging

17:40 <Didactylos> I think this gives us a way forward, until we take more complicated decisions that require input from DA.

17:41 <xcamel> yummy dinner

17:41 <Didactylos> We can develop the project-specific content in UBW, and the user documentation in Trac

17:42 <Didactylos> (I think this is a decision that is going to be made by the people who show up and contribute....)

17:42 <PovAddict> here's what I consider definitive: project-specific content in UBW; dev stuff stays in Trac

17:43 <Didactylos> Yes, that seems definitive.

17:43 <PovAddict> options may be: user documentation on Trac; or user documentation in what we now call UBW, which may become official if the Powers That Be agree with it

17:48 <Didactylos> We know that will never happen while it has project stuff in.

18:35 <PovAddict> both files are in the lib folder

18:36 <ilovegizmos> could it be because the projects are running in a different order than they're listed in my solution browser thing?

19:02 <xcamel> talking about credits is like pi$$ing into a stiff wind

19:02 <KathrynM> hiya Jack!

19:03 <jackygrahamez_> Hi Kathryn

19:03 <xcamel> 'lo K

19:03 * PovAddict tries to recognize what Jack this is

19:03 <Ageless> an H2 Jack

19:03 <jackygrahamez_> The one who asks too much

19:04 <KathrynM> :D

19:04 <PovAddict> hydrogen@home?

19:04 <jackygrahamez_> indeed

19:04 <xcamel> from warshington?

19:04 <xcamel> as in "DC"

19:04 <Ageless> warshington?

19:04 <jackygrahamez_> percisley WARshington

19:04 <xcamel> bingo

19:05 <xcamel> lol - my Son just flew down there today..

19:05 <jackygrahamez_> but I'm a lover

19:05 <KathrynM> and one hell of a scrabble player :)

19:05 <Ageless> jack here managed to screw up the credits again on his project so if you crunch there, you lost some ;)

19:05 <jackygrahamez_> thanks Jord

19:05 <KathrynM> that's ok, we still love you Jack

19:05 <Ageless> lol, used to it.

19:06 <xcamel> haven't really looked at H@home

19:06 <xcamel> tritium might come in handy though

19:06 <jackygrahamez_> Not much to look at really, still developing scientific methods, learning things

19:06 <PovAddict> KathrynM: you mean "kicks my a$$ at scrabble"?

19:06 <KathrynM> ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

19:07 <PovAddict> okay okay

19:07 <PovAddict> leave it at that

19:07 <KathrynM> not as bad as one of my coworkers

19:07 <PovAddict> lol

19:07 <KathrynM> she beat me something like 420 to 190

19:07 <KathrynM> she put one letter down and got like 50 points ;/

19:07 <jackygrahamez_> sometimes you get screwed if you have bad letters

19:07 <PovAddict> forming the word "pwned"

19:07 <xcamel> I still can't believe no one has started a realtime weather analysis project yet...

19:07 <KathrynM> yeah, that's my excuse

19:08 <ilovegizmos> well uc2 didn't build now; i got fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file '.\build\win32\debug\libboincapi.lib'

19:08 <efc> Well, we're already paying for one, might as well use it..

19:08 <PovAddict> libboincapi.lib != libboinc.lib; I think you need both

19:09 <ilovegizmos> why wouldn't they both be there? libboinc worked

19:10 <PovAddict> maybe that's the project that failed?

19:10 <efc> or a nuke modeling project called Tehran@Home

19:11 <Ageless> the meteo office can't even predict the weather correctly with all their super computers. So why would a BOINC project be able to do it?

19:12 <xcamel> not so much prediction, but sever weather analysis

19:12 <Ageless> Tornado@Home?

19:12 <xcamel> something like that..

19:12 <Ageless> that's then analyzing after the fact.

19:13 <efc> 16 hours BOINC comes back saying "Hey it rained!"

19:13 <PovAddict> weather rocks are faster...

19:13 <jackygrahamez_> anyone talking about this API for parallel workunits?

19:13 <Ageless> as even with the doppler radar they can't predict where it touches down. Or so the prohrams on NGC and DC say ;

19:13 <efc> Thats 3/4 of what the nightly weather report is. Telling me in great detail what happened and what is happening. I already know that!

19:14 <Ageless> like I said yesterday, go out more. If you get wet, it rains. do'h

19:14 <ilovegizmos> libboincapi got the error fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'GL/glaux.h': No such file or directory

19:15 <ilovegizmos> what's this glaux.h thing?

19:15 <PovAddict> ugh it should really work without it...

19:15 * efc still wants a Lightning Detector (and I don't mean my new electronics)

19:15 <PovAddict> it's OpenGL

19:15 <ilovegizmos> yea i figured

19:15 <PovAddict> &bticket #583

19:15 <Romulus>

19:15 <Didactylos> The auxiliary library, to be precise.

19:15 <PovAddict> er

19:15 <PovAddict> &bticket 583

19:15 <Romulus>

19:15 <PovAddict> that's the link...

19:15 <Didactylos> Nobody should be using it - it contains useful things like cubes and teapots.

19:16 <ilovegizmos> html404

19:16 <PovAddict> Didactylos: API on Unix lets you build with no gfx support at all

19:16 <Ageless> doesn't the boinc screen saver use a cube?

19:16 <PovAddict> no such thing on Windows? always requires OpenGL development libs?

19:17 <PovAddict> Ageless: anyone can do a cube without needing glaux

19:17 <Didactylos> Ageless: cubes can be done without a whole library ;-)

19:17 <Ageless> ok ok

19:17 <KathrynM> lol

19:17 <ilovegizmos> where does the .rar need to be?

19:17 <Ageless> I'll go hang back

19:17 <PovAddict> ilovegizmos: it says so...

19:17 <PovAddict> *extract* it in blah blah...

19:17 <Didactylos> I'm still looking at errors.

19:18 <Didactylos> Why can I find so few well documented errors?

19:18 <Didactylos> Ageless: the FAQ Service rules.

19:18 <PovAddict> Didactylos: just a thought: with a proper message protocol allowing translations and such, it should be possible to add help

19:18 <PovAddict> right click a message, click help, get to the right wiki page

19:18 <Ageless> is that sarcastic, or true?

19:19 <PovAddict> message looked up by ID

19:19 <Didactylos> Kind of like VS, you mean?

19:19 * PovAddict has never used Visual Studio...

19:19 <Didactylos> Ageless: true. It may not be complete, but it has some of the best documentation for the stuff it covers.

19:19 <PovAddict> ok I used express for an hour and couldn't manage to get anything to compile so I got rid of it

19:19 * Ageless blushes

19:20 <KathrynM> I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't get VS

19:20 <Didactylos> May I steal stuff for the official wiki?

19:20 <Ageless> I build Boinc 6.66.1 specially for Pirates... by cheating ;)

19:20 <PovAddict> what the FAQ Service lacks is an explicit note on what you're allowed to do with the content

19:20 <PovAddict> ie. a license

19:21 <Ageless> I already notified Neil on that, but he's in the middle of moving... so may take a while.

19:23 <Ageless> David,

19:23 <Romulus> <> (at

19:23 <Ageless> so you need me... ;)

19:24 <Ageless> or need to ask me.

19:25 <Didactylos> I just did. :-)

19:25 <Ageless> Um... let me think.

19:25 <Rookie_69> EFC: Just don't hold it too close to the lightning bolt.

19:25 <Romulus> <> (at

19:26 <Didactylos> I don't think there will be much I want to take - a FAQ and reference are very different things.

19:26 <Ageless> you can use stuff for the official wiki.

19:26 <xcamel> when that thing goes off... jump in a ditch.

19:26 <Didactylos> Thanks, Ageless

19:26 <xcamel> an old AM radio works better..

19:27 <Ageless> I still like to document application errors further, but that is difficult when you don't hear back from the project admins.

19:28 <efc> Just detecting the strike is pretty easily - getting direction, and interpreting the data, not as easy

19:28 <PovAddict> Ageless: I don't know :)

19:28 <PovAddict> I pass the error code as povray returns it; and I have had cases where the workunit actually fails but the error is 0, so it's not marked as computation error :\

19:29 <PovAddict> syntax error on input file not causing a "success" error code? wtf

19:29 <Ageless> not talking about task errors so much, but more those fun things as exit code 1, exit code 3 etc. the low ones.

19:30 <Ageless> and one project's exit code 3 is caused by something completely different than the same error on the next project

19:30 <PovAddict> yeah that's what I mean; I think POV-Ray is supposed to give 0 on success, 1 on error, 2 on user abort (not really possible if running on BOINC)

19:31 <PovAddict> yet many times I got 0 but there was a parse error on startup!

19:34 <jackygrahamez_> Does anyone have experience with java applets?

19:34 <Romulus> DA finally added Pov's opaque patch to make fixed credits

19:35 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez_: with making them? no

19:36 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez_: but many people say applets are bad, and you should use java web start instead

19:37 <jackygrahamez_> Let me elaborate, I have JMOL on my project site so people can view the results of our workunits, I have it so they run JMOL and then open the sample_results, is there a way I can add JMOL to the MIME file?

19:38 <PovAddict> I don't understand what you mean

19:38 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

19:39 <efc> Time to bake some cookies

19:40 <KathrynM> send some here

19:40 <jackygrahamez_> There is a configuration file for apache called mime.types and you can modify it to make certain applications open certain file types, I just modified it to open all PDB files as plain text, can I force it to open pdb using JMOL

19:40 *** Celelaptop has joined #boinc

19:40 <efc> Oatmeal-chocolate chip :)

19:40 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez_: no, mime types is not to make certain applications open certain file types

19:40 <PovAddict> it is to make certain file extensions get sent with a certain mime type

19:40 <PovAddict> the mime type -> application mapping is on the user's computer

19:40 <PovAddict> (the registry, on Windows)

19:41 <jackygrahamez_> I see

19:42 <jackygrahamez_> So they would need a registry mapping for JMOL on their end

19:42 <PovAddict> if the idea is having it open inside the browser, they would need a browser plugin

19:43 <jackygrahamez_> good enough

19:45 <ilovegizmos> is the name of the .exe i'm supposed to get uc2_5.10_windows_intelx86?

19:45 <Ageless> if I am not mistaken, Jack, the jmol picture on the PAH site I gave you the link to first wouldn't show either. It only showed as a download plugin option.

19:45 <PovAddict> yes ilovegizmos

19:45 <ilovegizmos> alright ty

19:45 <ilovegizmos> is that all i need for client distribution or do i need the files that are in the same folder with it?

19:46 <jackygrahamez_> I was only trying to make it easier for a user trying to open a result, make it fewer steps, but I'll just leave it alone for now

19:46 <PovAddict> that should be all, plus input file and the configuration for user creation

19:46 <PovAddict> err

19:46 <PovAddict> work creation

19:46 <Romulus> well the whole file then?

19:47 <ilovegizmos> what are the names for those?

19:47 <PovAddict> go read the documentation about work generation :)

19:47 <ilovegizmos> ah so

19:47 <ilovegizmos> yay reading

19:48 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez_: ah you *are* using java web start already, for JMOL

19:48 <jackygrahamez_> Yeah, not so savvy navigating the world of Java terminology

19:50 <PovAddict> wow that program is *fast*

19:51 <PovAddict> definitely using Java3D or something like that, hardware-accelerated

19:54 <jackygrahamez_> they got a bunch of similar plugins on RCSB.ORG but they are real slow

19:54 <jackygrahamez_> slow loading that is

19:56 <PovAddict> there were two pdbs on your sample results

19:56 <PovAddict> now only one

19:56 <jackygrahamez_> I had to modify the result template and assimilator to process the correct output, there may be some files in that directory you cannot view

19:56 <jackygrahamez_> I deleted the ones that you cannot view

19:57 <jackygrahamez_> My workunits generate several result files, but I only have it assimilating one currently

19:58 <jackygrahamez_> Just restored my system from a snapshot

23:12 <KathrynM> uternine cancer

23:12 <KathrynM> and my grandma had breast cancer a few years ago

23:12 <KathrynM> not real good for my future...

23:13 <Tank_Master> you get to look forward to both then

23:13 <PovAddict> or not

23:13 <PovAddict> KathrynM: well...

23:13 <KathrynM> well what? PovAddict

23:14 <PovAddict> by the time you get cancer (if you get it, hope not of course), hopefully your health-related BOINC crunching would have found an easy cure :)

23:14 <KathrynM> Think positive

23:15 <KathrynM> Maybe I should attach to rosie again

23:15 <PovAddict> isn't that positive?

23:15 <KathrynM> that is positive

23:15 <MTughan> On the contrary. We're talking about death.

23:16 <PovAddict> or better, if said easy cure is found much sooner so that your mom gets to use it

23:16 <PovAddict> "easy" meaning easier than taking organs out

23:17 <Tank_Master> its easy to take organs out

23:17 <Tank_Master> just hack away

23:17 <PovAddict> ugh...

23:17 <Tank_Master> :P

23:17 <PovAddict> speaking about taking things out...

23:17 <PovAddict> there's this tooth that... *shudder*

23:17 <Tank_Master> though making sure the cancer hanst spread is the hard part

23:18 <PovAddict> I had a tooth taken out a few yrs ago

23:19 * KathrynM shudders

23:19 <KathrynM> don't even talk to me about dentists

23:19 <PovAddict> most painful experience in my life so far (and no, I won't try breaking that record)

23:19 <Tank_Master> but you will

23:20 <PovAddict> shut the hell up
