14:40 <nickuwo> n e one know what happens to a WU when the client detaches? can't find it on the wiki.
14:40 <Tank_Master> hey
14:40 <Tank_Master> it depends on the client and the server softeware
14:41 <nickuwo> does it get regenerated?
14:41 <hawmps> it goes to the intergalatic bitbucket.
14:41 <nickuwo> depends on?
14:41 <PovAddict> nickuwo: it eventually times out (doesn't meet deadline) and gets regenerated
14:41 <Tank_Master> if bother are recent, the client tells the server it is detaching and the server makes the WUs as "client detached"
14:41 <nickuwo> sweet
14:41 <hawmps> same thing...
14:41 <Tank_Master> else, it will just time out and be reissued
14:42 <nickuwo> hmm my deadlines are like a year from now ...
14:42 <PovAddict> eep
14:42 <Tank_Master> plenty of time to compleat it then
14:42 <Tank_Master> long time to wait for a reissue though
14:43 <hawmps> set immediate regenerate on client_detach detected..
14:43 <nickuwo> config.xml?
14:43 <PovAddict> I never noticed the client contacting the server on detach
14:44 <hawmps> it should...
14:44 <PovAddict> ** SIMAP has work **
14:44 <Tank_Master> crap
14:44 <hawmps> might be in the old wishlist...
14:44 <nickuwo> can't find that on wiki either
14:45 <PovAddict> there is a server-side result state called "client detached"
14:45 <PovAddict> but I don't know how that is notified
14:45 <nickuwo> I'm getting the client detached from my ops page, so yea
14:46 <nickuwo> actually I can see the WUs being regenerated

17:35 <Didactylos> I'm trying to rewrite the BOINC troubleshooting page so it isn't a random collection of issues.
17:35 <Didactylos> Anyone want to weigh in with advice?
17:36 <xcamel> I'm sure some will
17:37 <Didactylos> I'm thinking sub-pages for installer, network and startup problems.
17:38 <xcamel> linux installs seem to be a big hanup.
17:38 <xcamel> er hangup even
17:38 <xcamel> rpms are a really bad idea for such a simple install
17:39 <Didactylos> What's simple about it?
17:39 <xcamel> we're talking client here, not server.
17:39 <Didactylos> Anything that creates users and installs a daemon/service is distinctly non-trivial.
17:40 <xcamel> they've made a mountain out of a molehill is my point.
17:40 <Didactylos> BOINC's problem is that simpler installers just don't cut it.
17:40 <Didactylos> xcamel: So how do you think it should be?
17:40 <xcamel> download, exteact into it's own dir as user, and just run it.
17:41 <xcamel> er extract even.
17:41 <xcamel> it's no big deal.
17:41 <xcamel> why spread the files all over your box.
17:42 <Didactylos> Sorry, that Fails It.
17:42 <xcamel> fails what?
17:42 <Didactylos> BOINC is a service.
17:42 <xcamel> bot always
17:42 <xcamel> grrrr...
17:42 <xcamel> not allways..
17:42 <Didactylos> It needs to run in the background, and automatically start.
17:42 <Didactylos> Without this, users are lost - they don't know where to start.
17:42 <xcamel> boinc in an application, including boincmgr
17:43 <Didactylos> in?
17:43 <Romulus> why do they have a bunch of plugins
17:43 <Didactylos> Someone kill the bot?
17:43 <xcamel> hey.. I've been doing this since the first version of astropulse for linux... they've made a mess of it.
17:44 <xcamel> one dir, one user, started by run_manager.
17:44 <xcamel> simple as breathing.
17:44 <Didactylos> "Simple" has two meanings.
17:45 <xcamel> brain surgery is simple with the right instruction set.
17:45 <PovAddict> xcamel: "simple" doesn't mean "the way you have been doing it since the beginning"
17:45 <Didactylos> There is raw and unadorned, simple in fact, but not simple for "normal" users.
17:45 <PovAddict> the installer should set it to auto-start on boot, should create a new user for it to run in, etc
17:46 <xcamel> linux users are far smarter than you give them credit for
17:46 <Didactylos> Then there is the simplicity that comes with careful planning and a lot of work to hide the necessary complexity.
17:46 <Didactylos> xcamel: Don't be daft.
17:46 <PovAddict> xcamel: big generalization
17:46 <xcamel> that's a make-work-bull$hit idea.
17:46 <Didactylos> Linux users cover the entire spectrum of "smart".
17:47 <Didactylos> Please don't be elitist about this. There are dumb Linux users, too.
17:47 <DerMeister> xcamel: Just take a look at those ubuntu users... Quite a lot of them know close to nothing about linux...
17:47 <PovAddict> xcamel: I never used yum, but any package you install over apt ends up scattered in your system, and in the case of things like mysql or apache, automatically installed and added to autostart
17:47 <Didactylos> You know the irony here?
17:47 <xcamel> creating complexity does not enhance boinc
17:47 <PovAddict> where "scattered in your system" means "each file in the place it should be according to the package guidelines"
17:47 <Didactylos> The simplest, cleanest, best designed BOINC port I have seen is for FreeBSD.
17:48 <xcamel> my point is that it shouldn't be a package.
17:48 <PovAddict> it should
17:48 <PovAddict> don't like it, don't use the package
17:48 <xcamel> that is an elitist idea
17:48 <wdsmia> re-hi
17:48 <Didactylos> xcamel: BOINC is already complex.
17:48 <xcamel> so you contradict yourself
17:49 <Didactylos> The installer has to hide that complexity, not ignore it.
17:49 <Romulus> I am planning to use the File->Quit command.
17:49 <xcamel> really? then why can I run it with 8 files in one directory?
17:49 <PovAddict> xcamel: does it auto-start if your machine reboots?
17:49 <xcamel> after a simple extract
17:50 <xcamel> yes
17:50 <DerMeister> xcamel: you don't run boinc in a sandbox?
17:50 <PovAddict> did the simple extract do that?
17:50 <Didactylos> If you run it as root by accident, to what degree are you compromising your system?
17:50 <Didactylos> A clue: lots
17:50 <xcamel> clue: none.
17:50 <DerMeister> That's insane ^^
17:50 <Didactylos> How do you work that out, xcamel?
17:51 <xcamel> by knowing my system, and how best to have it configured.
17:51 <DerMeister> boinc shouldn't even run under the standard user account. It should have it's own user which has as less priviliges as possible. On any system, even on Windows...

17:52 * Tank_Master has god skills and is invunerable
17:53 <xcamel> I have helped hundreds of people get it installed over the last 6 or so years now - and no complaints.
17:53 <Didactylos> root, god - what is difference?
17:53 <PovAddict> xcamel: that's the point: if it was a package, they wouldn't need help
17:53 <Tank_Master> one id the root of al evil, the other isnt
17:53 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: god has as bad typing skills as you? :)
17:53 *** wdsmia has quit IRC
17:53 <Didactylos> xcamel: likewise. It's amazing how few people can do it without help!
17:53 <xcamel> Didactylos is trying to base an argument on facts not in evidence..
17:53 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC
17:54 <Didactylos> What facts?
17:54 <Tank_Master> PovAddict: its not me, its the antiquated keyboard style input
17:54 <PovAddict> I bet there's more noobs asking for help in WCG forum than on this channel
17:54 <xcamel> running as root... where exactly did I ever say that?
17:54 * PovAddict curses English prepositions once more
17:54 <Didactylos> This is true.
17:55 <Didactylos> xcamel: I did, in my scenario: "If you run it as root by accident"
17:55 * xcamel notes WCG is a "special" version of boinc
17:55 <Didactylos> xcamel: not special at all. It just uses the branding features of BOINC.
17:55 <Tank_Master> requieres a "special" type of noob to try it
17:55 <xcamel> so creating an unlikely event to make your argument helps you?
17:56 <Tank_Master> always
17:56 <Romulus> I still get credit (on the front lawn?
17:56 <Tank_Master> LOL
17:56 <PovAddict> FreeLarry has done it
17:56 <PovAddict> and then he couldn't run it as user again because permissions were borked
17:56 <PovAddict> IIRC
17:56 <Didactylos> xcamel: if you base your security on what is likely and unlikely, you will only get pwnd every *other* week....
17:56 <Didactylos> :-D
17:56 <xcamel> I know what works for me, and many many others. Complexity is not helpful, or even useful.
17:57 * Tank_Master uses a complex password of password1
17:57 <xcamel> really? never happened here, and I have more systems on line that you can even imagine (most not involved with boinc)
17:58 <DerMeister> Well, I'm actually wondering why I'm running any boinc project on my system... From a security perspective boinc is a real nightmare
17:58 <Tank_Master> there are no known attackes on the BOINC platform to date
17:58 <xcamel> because of the complexity of the installer - they shot themselves right in the foot.
17:58 *** MichaelJE2 has quit IRC
17:59 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: here's a known attack: make a BOINC project with a malicious app, post URL on stats forums, and get a hundred users join within a week and get pwned
17:59 <Tank_Master> only knowen malware associated with BOINC is people creating a virus that install BOINC on internet computers and runs it in their account
17:59 <DerMeister> True... But one example: I'm not even running my own boinc project. However, I could have easily comprimiesed more than 1500 boxes, just by providing linux applications for primegrid...
17:59 <Tank_Master> PovAddict: that hasnt happened *yet*
17:59 <Tank_Master> not saying it cant
17:59 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: so what?
17:59 <xcamel> any system that does not run behind a hardware firewall and a software IDS is an instant target anyway.. boinc or not.
18:00 <Didactylos> DerMeister: use the feature preventing attaching to random projects?
18:00 *** wdsmia has joined #Boinc
18:00 <PovAddict> xcamel: oh yeah tell my aunt that
18:00 <xcamel> tell your aunt what?
18:00 <PovAddict> to use a hardware firewall and software IDS
18:00 <Tank_Master> to use a hardware firewall
18:01 <Didactylos> xcamel: You remind me of my little brother. He has this odd belief that a firewall will protect him from anything, and further secuity isn't needed.
18:01 <xcamel> please name the number of times/cases where boinc has been hacked...
18:02 <DerMeister> if it gets hacked it is already too late...
18:02 <Didactylos> xcamel: nobody is collecting such statistics.
18:02 <xcamel> Didactylos those of you who think you know everything are beginning to pi$$ of those of us who do...
18:02 <DerMeister> lol
18:02 <Didactylos> You know everything?
18:02 <Didactylos> Sums it up, really.
18:03 * Tank_Master is omnipatent
18:03 <DerMeister> Indeed *g*
18:03 <xcamel> let me ask this.. what do you do for a living?
18:04 <Didactylos> I write code, and design software.
18:04 <Tank_Master> sit around eating pizza and play video games
18:04 * PovAddict slaps Tank_Master around a bit with a large trout
18:04 * Tank_Master slaps PovAddict around a bit with a large trout
18:04 <Didactylos> (With a little graphics on the side, because doing one thing all the time sends people insane)
18:04 * PovAddict had a larger trout
18:04 <xcamel> My day starts with about a a million $ worth of VM servers in a commercial enterprise.
18:04 * Tank_Master had a harder slap
18:05 <xcamel> keeping a $200 million company running 24/7
18:05 <Didactylos> How nice for you.
18:05 <Didactylos> This is relevant how?
18:05 <xcamel> and that's not even my main job.
18:05 <Tank_Master> its the big dick sindrome
18:06 <Didactylos> On the internet, everyone is hung like a horse.
18:06 <Tank_Master> true
18:06 <Tank_Master> :)
18:07 <xcamel> especially those who are invested in writing more code and complexity into everything.
18:07 <xcamel> and leaving more holes to be attacked behind every day.
18:07 <DerMeister> Well, just imagine what your job look like without those people ;)
18:08 <Didactylos> If you manage so many servers, you *must* be used to real ports that install files to all the normal places....
18:08 <Didactylos> Surely?
18:08 <xcamel> what's your point?
18:08 <Tank_Master> no, his script randomly puts files in randome loacations using randome ports
18:09 <Tank_Master> its more complex that way, and thus more secure
18:09 <Didactylos> How impressed would you be if you installed Apache, and discovered that it comes in a single directory, with all the configuration lumped together with the executables - and you have to start it manually?
18:09 <DerMeister> yeah... security by obscurity ^^
18:10 <DerMeister> Didactylos: I would say: "Welcome to the stone-age"... ;)
18:10 <Tank_Master> the best security you can have is to have nothing to steal
18:11 <xcamel> there is a time and a place for "standard" installs, and there are plenty of other options that make things nearly impossible for the "wrong people" to figure out.
18:11 *** DerMeister has quit IRC
18:11 <Didactylos> BOINC doesn't deserve a standard install?
18:11 <xcamel> apache is a really bad example, by the way...
18:12 <Didactylos> ...because...?
18:13 <xcamel> there is about a hundred ways to install it, depending on the platform, and how large the scale is.
18:13 *** chupacabra has quit IRC
18:13 <xcamel> boinc is simply a toy
18:14 <xcamel> a muse that people opt in and out of every day
18:14 <Didactylos> It will remain a toy if it can't be installed securely, with decent startup behaviour.
18:15 <Tank_Master> lol
18:15 <Tank_Master> hows it not secure?
18:15 <Tank_Master> I am defrntly not saying that it is
18:15 <xcamel> 10 files, one protected user, one dir, and a simple autostart script. How hard is that?
18:16 <PovAddict> xcamel: very for an average Ubuntu lemming
18:16 <Didactylos> Tank_Master: I meant sandboxing.
18:16 <xcamel> because you and the devs are making it hard...
18:16 <Tank_Master> windows install will have sandboxing in the 6.x release
18:16 <Didactylos> Indeed.
18:16 <Tank_Master> the max from my understanding already has it
18:17 <Tank_Master> mac*
18:17 <Didactylos> xcamel: necessary complexity. The secret of a good installer is to hide that complexity.
18:17 <Tank_Master> service install is the only option onf a windows install for 6.x
18:17 <xcamel> you already drank the koolaid and there is no going back from that.
18:17 *** chupacabra has joined #boinc
18:18 <Didactylos> Tank_Master: Hopefully. We'll see how that one turns out.
18:18 <Tank_Master> also, with windows, there s adata directory and a program directoty
18:18 <PovAddict> xcamel: they are making it easier for the end user
18:18 <Tank_Master> to more align with the vista security mentality
18:18 <PovAddict> 10 files, one protected user, one dir, and a simple autostart script the user has to write himself and know where to put, versus "yum install boinc" and be done with it
18:19 <Didactylos> Tank_Master: you mean a belated attempt to meet program requirements that date back decades? ;-)
18:19 <PovAddict> which is the "hard" one?
18:19 <xcamel> easier to start maybe, but when they upgrade, or hit a major version change, all hell brakes loose
18:19 <xcamel> happens every time.
18:19 <PovAddict> well if yum sucks that's not my problem
18:19 <wdsmia> asks PovAddict to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.
18:20 <PovAddict> or boinc devs'
18:20 <xcamel> that's why so many are running idiotic 'packaged" versions of 5.8.x and even 5.4.x
18:21 <Tank_Master> dont know better
18:21 <Tank_Master> "set and forget"
18:21 <PovAddict> xcamel: people run the packaged 5.4.x because nobody bothered to upgrade the package
18:21 <Tank_Master> would be nice if there was some sort of auto update for BOINC
18:22 <Didactylos> Tank_Master: always suggested, never implemented.
18:22 <Tank_Master> I know
18:22 <Tank_Master> doesnt meen it wouldnt be nice ;)
18:22 <PovAddict> one possible reason for not upgrading the package, was that the package maintainers stumbled upon somebody saying "don't use packages! leave it on a single directory!"
18:24 <Didactylos> Port maintainers expect a tarball, not BOINC's odd self-extracting script.
18:24 <Didactylos> IFAIK, that is the biggest reason BOINC lacks port support.
18:25 <Romulus> Title: BOINC on FreeBSD (at people.freebsd.org)
18:25 <xcamel> that "odd self-extracting script" gives the *nix user exactly what they need, nothing more, and it works just fine.
18:26 <PovAddict> Didactylos: what version is it?
18:26 <PovAddict> xcamel: *you* said they also need "one protected user [...] and a simple autostart script"
18:26 <Didactylos> PovAddict: it is updated regularly.
18:27 <Didactylos> I worked with Pav to fix a bug once, and I was impressed with the rapid response.
18:27 <KathrynM> Didactylos, I'd fit into the dumb linux user catgeory :)
18:27 <KathrynM> (sorry, catching up on what I missed)
18:28 <Didactylos> KathrynM: we *all* have our "dumb Linux user" days.
18:28 <xcamel> If you haven't learned how to do that in linux, you shouldn't be anywhere near it. go back to winduhs.
18:28 <Didactylos> How rude.
18:28 <Didactylos> ESR would kick you in the goolies.
18:29 <xcamel> sometimes the truth hurts. deal with it.
18:29 <Didactylos> Heck, so would Linus!
18:29 <PovAddict> question...
18:29 <xcamel> Linus Torvalds was the first one to say it.
18:30 <xcamel> about 10 years ago, and he still says it today.

18:30 <Tank_Master> KM!
18:30 <KathrynM> my 20 won...
18:31 <KathrynM> I started with Ubuntu and could have used the package manager.
18:31 <KathrynM> I changed to Fedora and now I could use yum.
18:31 <Didactylos> PovAddict: to answer your earlier question: boinc-client-5.10.32
18:31 <KathrynM> But I would have learned a lot less
18:31 <xcamel> Bingo, KathrynM
18:31 <PovAddict> Didactylos: I mailed him to add mention of boinc_cmd --lookup_account
18:31 <KathrynM> I know I"m not typical in that I wanted to learn
18:31 <xcamel> learning is the key to linux, not handholding.
18:32 <PovAddict> there's a problem with that logic, xcamel
18:32 <KathrynM> depends on what the hand holding is
18:32 <PovAddict> if the user doesn't want to learn, or thinks it's too hard
18:32 <KathrynM> another human to hold your hand and then let go when you're ready is invaluable
18:32 <KathrynM> short cuts, not so much
18:32 <xcamel> that's why mandrake nearly bought the big one, and Corel, for that matter.
18:32 <PovAddict> it's not him that loses, it's the projects (one less potential user)
18:33 <KathrynM> even tho there's now a package in fedora repos, I'll stick to my way. I can upgrade when a new version comes out and not have to wait
18:33 <xcamel> exactly. and it's clean, simple, and yes... secure.
18:34 <KathrynM> my way = install to own user as a daemon
18:34 <KathrynM> but whatever
18:34 <KathrynM> I never seemed to get the berk way to work
18:35 <xcamel> or as secure as you're willing to spend the time and ask people how to 'harden' your system
18:35 <xcamel> which is much more valueable as it applies to the rest of what you do with your box..

19:58 *** CoderInTheLab788 has quit IRC
19:58 <efc> I'm sure Georgia could use another detector...
19:58 <xcamel> I think the NLDN has filed a suit against them...
19:59 <xcamel> NLDN used your millions in tax $$$ to create a closed network and charges everyone up the a$$ to use it
20:00 <efc> Sounds like the usual govt funded research
20:00 <xcamel> indeed
20:00 <efc> Not sure what claim they would have. Patent crap?
20:01 <efc> Triangulation isn't exactly "novel"
20:02 *** mweltin has quit IRC
20:02 <xcamel> loads of patents
20:03 <efc> Any idea how do the Bolteks get their direction? Amplitude lobing?
20:03 <xcamel> reception, detection, networking, analysis, aggregation of strike data, geocoding, etc.
20:04 <efc> I mean just as a standalone unit. If there's only one antenna, the options are pretty limited.
20:04 <xcamel> lobing and reflection differential
20:05 <efc> I'd guess they aren't accurate within 5 miles? Since the antennas aren't gneerally going to be pointed up
20:05 <xcamel> there is a direct correlation in the type of strike, distance, amplitude, duration, and frequency of the noise
20:06 <efc> They could give them some funky patterns I suppose, maybe a cardoid with the tip going up in elevation
20:06 *** CoderForLife has quit IRC
20:06 <efc> the other way you can do instant angle is through phase comparison, but I don't think that would work in this application.
20:09 <KathrynM> Off to see the ankle biters. I can hear them singing already.
20:09 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...
20:09 <xcamel> Mike Mears frme aninoquisi can fill you in on how the detector really works...
20:09 <xcamel> Have fun, K
20:10 * xcamel wonders if they're all singing the llama song...
20:10 * efc thinks they have 4 cheap AM radios in a box and pick the one that crackles the loudest
20:10 <KathrynM> not the llama song!
20:10 <KathrynM> please god no. anything but that

23:31 <MTughan> 3 hours ago. Not that long ago. :P
23:32 <PovAddict> I needed XSLT help and you're the only one I know who has used it :)
23:32 <MTughan> Now that's long ago.
23:32 <MTughan> Haven't done XSLT for 2+ years.
23:33 <KathrynM> I'm outta here.

23:33 <MTughan> Bye.
23:34 *** zombie67 has left #boinc
23:35 <PovAddict> I was experimenting with the format for the web RPC to get a profile
23:35 <MTughan> Ah, okay.
23:35 <PovAddict> ...and made a XSLT stylesheet to convert it back to HTML :)
23:35 <MTughan> I'd just do a DTD. Even W3C still uses a DTD.
23:35 <MTughan> Oh, right... Not Schema.
23:37 <PovAddict> what I couldn't get working right was relative URLs in <image>
23:37 <PovAddict> there is resolve-uri and base-uri functions, none worked in Firefox, nor on PHP's XsltProcessor
23:37 <MTughan> Not implemented?
23:38 <PovAddict> either that, or I'm Using Them Wrong

23:50 <Didactylos> AFAIK those functions are new in XPath 2.

23:54 <MTughan> Anyway, I need to be off to bed. Badminton tournament tomorrow.
23:54 <MTughan> PovIpod: Apparently, the functions are in XPath 2, which you aren't specifying.
23:54 <PovIpod> ah crap
23:55 <PovIpod> firefox doesn't do 2.0
23:55 <MTughan> Didactylos has the details.
